DANI CEBALLOS may have dropped a hint regarding his future after he was snapped wearing a Real Betis shirt on Monday night.

The 24-year-old has shown he still has a soft spot for his former side, who he made his debut with in 2014 after coming through their academy.

The Spanish midfielder starred on loan at Arsenal during the 2019/20 season, chipping in with two goals and two assists in 37 games in all competitions.

He became an integral part of the Gunners side under Mikel Arteta following the restart of football in June, as he helped the North Londoners win the FA Cup.

There had been hope from Arsenal fans that Ceballos would return to the club.

But a picture has emerged of Ceballos wearing a Betis jersey while playing the board game Parcheesi with friends on Monday night.

Arsenal are understood to want to bring the player back on another loan deal, while Manuel Pellegrini is looking to permanently sign him.

Commenting on his future in an interview with El Partidazo de COPE, he said: “I’m not thinking about whether or not I can play for Real Madrid, Arsenal or another club.”

He then told Cadena SER: “It’s a satisfaction to have won the FA Cup. I’m thrilled to end the season with a title.”

Before adding: “I have a lot love for Betis, for everyone that works at that club.

“They know the love I have for them and we’be been in contact all season. Betis means a lot me.”

Lewis Hamilton accuses F1 chiefs of deliberately tinkering with rules to make races interesting amid Mercedes dominance

lewis hamilton accuses f1 chiefs of deliberately tinkering with rules to make races interesting amid mercedes dominance

LEWIS HAMILTON has accused F1’s governing body, the FIA, of tinkering with the rules deliberately to keep the sport interesting.

Hamilton has dominated this season, with six wins, eight pole positions and eight podiums in just 10 races.

His impressive run has put him 44-points ahead of his rivals in the championship.

But after being heavily penalised in the Italian and Russian GPs with 10-second time penalties, plus the FIA’s decision to ban engine qualifying modes to limit his Mercedes’ power, Hamilton says they are interfering too much.

When asked by SunSport if he felt he was being targeted, Hamilton said: “I don’t necessarily think that it’s for me. 

“I think probably most teams, whenever a team is at the front, obviously they are doing a lot of scrutiny.

“Everything we have on our car is being checked, and double-checked and triple-checked.

“They are changing rules, such as the engine regs, lots of lots of things to get in the way to keep the racing exciting, I assume.

“I don’t know if the rules, in terms of what happened [in Russia], was anything to do with it but naturally that’s how it feels.

“It feels like we’re fighting uphill, but it’s OK. It’s not like I haven’t faced adversity before.

“So we just keep our heads down and keep fighting and keep trying to do a better job and be cleaner and squeaky clean.”

The 10 second combined time penalties in Sochi stopped Hamilton from equalling Michael Schumacher’s record of 91 wins in F1.

However, Hamilton later had the two penalty points expunged from his licence, moving him further away from picking up a one-race ban.

The penalty in Russia related to his practice starts on the way to the grid, where his Mercedes team gave him the green light to do so.

However, Merc’s trackside engineering director, Andrew Shovlin, said he feared the FIA would punish Hamilton after admitting they did not realise just how far up the pitlane Hamilton had travelled to practice his starts.

Instead of the penalty points being applied to Hamilton’s licence, Merc were hit with a £23,000 fine.

Speaking after the race, Shovlin said: “Lewis asked if he could go a bit further, we hadn’t realised quite how far he was going to go.

“We didn’t see the first one. When we saw the second one we thought ‘they’re not going to like that’.

“We didn’t think it was dangerous and, given that the event notes said that it was on the right-hand side after the pit exit, we thought it might have been ambiguous enough that we would have just got a telling-off.

“But when we saw the car position, it wasn’t a complete surprise that they didn’t like it.”

Meanwhile, the FIA’s Race Director, Michael Masi says he is open for a discussion with Hamilton if the world champion senses there is an issue.

He said: “From my perspective it’s very simple that if Lewis wants to raise something, as I have said to him before, and said to all the drivers, numerous times the door is always open.

“I’m more than happy to discuss anything but I think from an FIA perspective, we are there as a sporting regulator, to administer the regulations.

“We have the stewards as an independent judiciary to adjudicate those, and therefore there was an infringement and it doesn’t matter if it was Lewis or any other one of the 19 drivers.

“If a breach has occurred of the regulations, they will consider it on its merits, adjudicate it equitably and fairly in the circumstances taking all the key elements into account.”

Bournemouth trying to hijack Rodrigo Riquelme transfer from Atletico Madrid to Reading as David Brooks replacement

bournemouth trying to hijack rodrigo riquelme transfer from atletico madrid to reading as david brooks replacement scaled

Bournemouth are trying to hijack Spanish winger Rodrigo Riquelme’s move from Atletico Madrid to Reading.

The Cherries want tricky Riquelme to join them as a potential replacement for Welsh star David Brooks who is available at £50 million.

Riquelme was due to join Reading where his agent has strong links, but now Bournemouth have come in and want to tie up the deal quickly.

Atletico want Riquelme to play after he starred for their B team last season. And Jason Tindall’s side could provide that chance if Brooks goes.

Brooks has been a target for Leicester while Manchester United are also keeping an eye on him in case they cannot land Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. 

Bournemouth are looking to boost quality in the squad after having to let some big-hitters leave this summer following their relegation.

Nathan Ake was sold to Manchester City last month for a whopping £41million.

Senior players Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser both went to Newcastle, with the latter going on a free.

Fraser refused to sign a new contract beyond June after the season had to be extended due to lockdown.

And he then rubbed salt in the wounds by suggesting he could have kept them up had he stayed.

Bournemouth have also lost the likes of Jordan Ibe and Harry Arter.

Long-serving players Charlie Daniels, Simon Francis and Andrew Surman were all released.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah favourite for Premier League Golden Boot with Vardy odds SLASHED after goalscoring heroics

liverpool star mohamed salah favourite for premier league golden boot with vardy odds slashed after goalscoring heroics

MO SALAH is favourite to win the Premier League Golden Boot – but Jamie Vardy’s odds have been slashed after his Manchester City heroics.

Leicester star Vardy took the award for most goals last season too when he came top of the pile with 23.

And the 33-year-old – a 16/1 shot with Ladbrokes to reclaim his crown before the season started – is now second favourite after his hat-trick against City.

Vardy, who called time on his international career more than two years ago, scored two penalties either side of a brilliant near-post finish to stun Pep Guardiola’s title chasers.

It means Vardy is already top of the list alongside Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin on five goals from three games.

And the Foxes star is 5/1 to stay there until the end of the season, with Liverpool hero Salah, who has three goals from two games, a 4/1 shot.

Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, who bagged four against Southampton, occupies third spot on his own – but looks like he could be out for a while with a hamstring problem.

Leeds’ Patrick Bamford and Brighton’s Neal Maupay both have three goals from as many games but don’t feature on the list of likely Golden Boot winners.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is third favourite at 11/2.

There is then a big break before you get to Calvert-Lewin at 10/1.

Son’s Spurs team-mate Harry Kane – one goal so far this season – is a 10/1 shot to finish top.

Chelsea new boy Timo Werner – who is yet to score – is 12/1.

Southampton star Danny Ings has enjoyed a resurgence and is 16/1, the same as Man City’s Raheem Sterling and Liverpool ace Sadio Mane.

It is eye-opening that no Manchester United player currently makes the shortlist.

England forward Marcus Rashford has two goals from just three shots after three games.

While Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood, Juan Mata and Donny van de Beek all have one each.
