Mediawatch - 27 March


It might have been a weekend free of Premier League action, but it was still a busy time for a number of our players with the international action coming thick and fast.

Following positive results for Darren Randolph and Jose Fonte, the mantle was passed on to Robert Snodgrass and Havard Nordtveit as they played FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Sunday.

Scotland needed a win against Slovenia, and this BBC Sport match report carries all the details from their crucial 1-0 victory - in which Snodgrass started to win his 23rd cap.

It keeps Scotland in the hunt, but unfortunately the same cannot be said for Nordtveit's Norway, who were defeated 2-0 in Northern Ireland to leave them with just three points from five games. The Belfast Telegraph has this match report.

Moving on to transfer speculation, and there is more reporting around Gylfi Sigurdsson's possible move from Swansea in the summer.

The papers carried rumours of West Ham interest last last week, and now the Express say Newcastle United are set to provide competition for his signature, with the Magpies prepared to pay £15m for the Iceland international.

Finally, 17-year-old defender Josh Tymon has been making quite the impression at Hull City, and the Hull Daily Mail say West Ham are monitoring his progress closely.

The England U17 international has made four Premier League appearances already, despite his tender years.
