Premier League Roundup: Chicharito wants out of West Ham, in talks with MLS

Just one week after Phil Jagielka informed Everton management that he had just captained his last season for the Toffees, West Ham forward Chicharito has confirmed to Sky Sports that he intends to leave the Irons this summer. 

Here's the latest Premier League news: 

Player Notes

Brighton and Hove Albion: 22 year-old centerback Matt Clarke has officially signed a 4-year, €3.5 deal with Brighton. This is the first signing of manager Graham Potter's tenure with the Seagulls. 

Burnley: Everton and Newcastle have joined a number of top-flight Premier League clubs expressing interest in the Claret's 19 year-old forward, Dwight McNeil

Everton: In wake of the news regarding Jagielka and center-mate Ashley Williams' desires to transfer, the Toffees have joined the bidding war for Bristol City defender Adam Webster

Newcastle: Manager Rafael Benitez plans to leave the club when his contract expires June 30th, ending a three-year tenure in St. James Park. 

West Ham United: In the midst of his quest for a second Gold Cup title, Javier Hernandez and West Ham United have reportedly come to a mutual agreement that the forward should leave this summer with a year still left on his contract. The decision comes on the heels of West Ham signing forward Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo, putting the Mexican's playing time in jeopardy. Chicharito's agent is rumored to be in talks with MLS clubs as potential destinations.

Premier League Roundup: Arsenal youngster Joe Willock takes on leadership role

The top teams in the league have now begun to balance European competitions with the Premier League slate, adding a bit of flavor to some lineups.

Whether in the Champions League or the Europa League, there are some balancing acts to be played. In Arsenal's case, they've turned to one of their homegrown prospects, Joe Willock, to take on a more veteran role in the middle of the pitch.

Here's the latest news from around the Premier League:

Player notes

Arsenal: Manager Unai Emery sent a handful of Arsenal Academy graduates onto the pitch Thursday as the Gunners opened Europa League group play against Eintracht Frankfurt, and the move paid off. Midfielder Joe Willock scored the game's first goal, inspiring Arsenal to secure a 3-0 win. Willock controlled possession for the Gunners throughout the match and was lively defensively. But Bukayo Saka, another Gunner youngster, scored a highlight-reel goal before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added a third.

West Ham United: The Hammers will be faced with a decision this weekend as their first-choice left-back Arthur Masuaku picked up two red cards Monday night and a subsequent suspension for the next match.

Chelsea: After months of speculation, Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi inked a new five-year deal with the club. He's the latest homegrown product to sign a long-term deal with the club, joining Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Newcastle United: American international Deandre Yedlin will return to action and compete for a starting spot on the Magpies' backline after recovering from groin surgery.

As teams around the world prepare for the start of Champions League play, the Premier League continues to ramp up play.

Here are the latest updates from the Premier League:

Norwich City: An extensive injury report could not stop the Canaries against Manchester City, as striker Teemu Pukki tallied a goal and an assist. Norwich City now finds itself with two wins and three losses after the historic 3-2 victory over the reigning Premier League champions.

Tottenham Hotspur: Forward Son Heung-min scored twice as the Spurs scorched Crystal Palace for four goals in the first half, blanking Crystal Palace the rest of the way. The well-balanced offensive attack saw six different Tottenham players contribute at least one point.
