Monaco's Colombian striker Radamel Falcao eyes the ball during a French L1 football match against Evian TG (EVTG) at the Louis II Stadium in Monaco on November 8, 2013Manchester United have agreed a sensational deal to sign Colombia striker Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan from Monaco, according to widespread British media reports on Monday. The prolific 28-year-old forward, who missed the World Cup with a serious knee injury, was whisked into United's Carrington training centre on Monday evening after flying into Manchester, Sky Sports News reported. Should he pass a medical examination and agree personal terms before the 2200 GMT transfer deadline, he will join United on loan for a reported fee of around 10 million euros ($13.1 million). United will then have an option to make the deal permanent for 55 million euros at the end of the season, sources at Monaco told AFP.

This undated handout photo recieved from FreeKenNow.com on October 12, 2013 shows US citizen Kenneth Bae, a 44-year-old US citizen jailed in North Korea who is also known by his Korean name Pae Jun-HoThree US citizens held in North Korea pleaded for their freedom Monday, urging Washington to send an envoy to the isolated authoritarian state to negotiate their release. As government minders looked on, Kenneth Bae, Jeffrey Fowle and Matthew Miller, who appeared tense, provided new details about their treatment in the reclusive, autocratic state. "Continue to pray for me," Bae, the longest-held detainee, said in a message to family and friends in a highly unusual interview with CNN. Bae was arrested in November 2012 and later sentenced to 15 years of hard labor on charges of seeking to topple the North Korean government.

European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinely talks to the media during a press conference on August 6, 2014 in Louisville, KentuckyRyder Cup captains Paul McGinley and Tom Watson take centre stage on Tuesday when they both name their three wildcard picks to complete their lineups for Gleneagles. McGinley in particular is facing a tough choice with two former world number ones, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, along with the Ryder Cup hero of two years ago Ian Poulter all failing to make it into the nine automatic qualifying slots. Normally they would all be clearcut picks for the Irishman, but complicating the situation is the good form of Scotland's Stephen Gallacher, who narrowly missed out on supplanting Graeme McDowell in the ninth and final qualifying spot by finishing third on Sunday at the Italian Open. McGinley, who played and missed the cut in Turin, was on hand to see how hard Gallacher battled to make the team and he was full of praise for the 39-year-old who lives just 35 miles from Gleneagles and knows the course better than anyone else among the Ryder Cup hopefuls.
