Finland midfielder Joni Kauko, now playing in the ongoing EURO 2020 is all set to sign for ATK Mohun Bagan ahead of ISL 2021-22.

Xtra Time Web Desk: In what is likely to be the biggest signing of the transfer season, ISL club ATK Mohun Bagan is all set to sign Finland midfielder Joni Kauko. 30 years old Kauko is now representing his country in the ongoing EURO 2020.

Kauko has represented Finland in 25 international matches including the first two group league matches of the ongoing EURO 2020. He came on in the 76th minute in their 1-0 win against Denmark, a country where he plays his club football. Kauko plays for Esbjerg fB. In the second match against Russia, he came on in the 67th minute but ended up on the wrong side of the score sheet as Finland lost 0-1.

A product of the FC Inter youth system in Finland, the central midfielder can also play in an attacking role. He made his debut for the first team in 2008 and spent the next five years there. In 2013, he made a move to rivals FC Lahti for a short-spell before crossing over to Germany where he spent the next three years – switching between FSV Frankfurt and Energie Cottbus

Kauko next moved to Denmark where he signed for top division side Randers FC in 2016. He recently plied his trade at Esbjerg fB, where his contract ran out this summer. In 2018, Esbjerg fB finished 3rd while the next season they got relegated.

Daniel Norris trade for the Brewers is nothing to phone home about

Milwaukee supporters sure were hoping for some better news, as Norris is currently sporting a 5.83 ERA this season. That’s not the kind of production you want from a reliever, which is why the Brewers receive a C grade for this deal.

Meanwhile, for Detroit, they’re getting a B+ for moving Norris. In return, Tigers beat writer Jason Beck is reporting Detroit is receiving 21-year-old pitching prospect, Reese Olson.

Blue Jays acquiring Twins ace Jose Berrios for Martin, Woods Richardson

Published

The Toronto Blue Jays made a big splash hours before Friday’s MLB Trade Deadline, acquiring right-handed starter Jose Berrios from the Minnesota Twins, Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith confirms.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was first to report the agreement.

Nicholson-Smith reports that the Blue Jays are sending No. 2 prospect Austin Martin and No. 4 prospect Simeon Woods Richardson to the Twins in the trade.

Berrios, who is under team control through the 2022 season, was one of the most sought-after starters on the trade market. He has 3.48 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 20 starts for the Twins this season. The two-time All-Star has spent his entire six-year career with the Twins and outside his rookie season he has never had an ERA above 4.00.

The move gives the Blue Jays a third ace starter to join Robbie Ray, Alek Manoah and Cy Young finalist Hyun-Jin Ryu. It also is the latest blockbuster move in the AL East arms race after the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays all made trades in recent days to add power bats to their lineups.

The Blue Jays enter play Friday, their first home game at the Rogers Centre in nearly two years, fourth in the division with a 51-48 record. They are 9.5 games back of the Red Sox for first in the division and 4.5 games out a wild card spot.
