NFL Cancels Texans-Cowboys Preseason Game after Harvey
Watt said he's been moved by watching everyone that has helped out in the crisis so far and is looking forward to pitching in. Those who have purchased tickets to the game can get a refund; if not, the money will still go to the relief fund.

Swansea City this morning agreed a £12 million deal to re-sign former striker Wilfried Bony from Manchester City and that deal will allow Llorente to move on.

Llorente nearly joined Chelsea in January and his reunion with Antonio Conte, with whom he worked at Juventus a few years ago, was as expected to occur this summer. Especially if Chelsea sign Llorente, he will have less playing time.

Llorente's arrival at the North London club could also signal the departure of Dutch striker Vincent Janssen.

Llorente scored 15 goals in 35 games for Swansea in one season after joining from Sevilla.

Chelsea appeared to be in the driver's seat for the player, though as reported by BBC Sport's David Ornstein, it was Spurs who made their move for the player first.
