Arsenal confirm loan signing of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid

Arsenal have confirmed Martin Odegaard has joined the club on loan from Real Madrid (Picture: Getty)Arsenal have confirmed Martin Odegaard has joined the club on loan from Real Madrid for the remainder of the season. The Norway international had appeared destined to return to Real Sociedad after spending the whole of the last campaign with the Basque club, but Arsenal’s offer proved too tempting to resist. Mikel Arteta has spent the majority of the January transfer window trimming a bloated squad which he had branded ‘unmanageable’. Already the Spaniard has sanctioned the departures of Sead Kolasinac, William Saliba, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Mesut Ozil. ‘It’s great that we’ve secured Martin to come to us until the end of the season. Martin is of course a player that we all k

Amber Portwood Splits from Boyfriend: “He’s Very Possessive and Jealous”

Amber Portwood is once again single. And guys around the world are probably hoping she doesn't want to mingle. Not after her history of ugly break-ups and abuse, mostly emotional, but also physical on at least one occasion.

The troubled star told MTV producer Townsend that Dimitri "has been calling me nonstop" during the COVID-19 pandemic. Why was that scary? "I need to be aware of this dynamic because I've been in controlling relationships before," she said. "He's possessive from a distance, he needs to know what I'm doing all day every day."

Auschwitz was liberated 76 years ago today (Picture: Galerie Bilderwelt/Getty Images) On January 27, 1945, a few months before the end of World War Two, Russian soldiers freed thousands of starving and dangerously ill prisoners in the Auschwitz concentration camp in south-west Poland. Auschwitz was the largest of the Nazi camp systems used during the Holocaust and was made up of forced labour camps, a concentration camp and a killing centre.

Auschwitz: How the camp still stands in silent witness to horrors of 1945

People come to Auschwitz to pay respect (Picture Getty) Seventy-six years ago today, battle-hardened Soviet soldiers captured scenes of unimaginable horror in Auschwitz. The Nazis had blown up parts of the site, where at least 1.1 million people had died, 90% of them Jewish – but thousands of prisoners remained. Today, Auschwitz stands largely untouched – the abandoned huts and barbed wire fences remain in mute testimony to some of the worst crimes in human history.  The camps have been left as they were found in 1945, as a monument to the Nazi atrocities. (Pictures: Getty)Hundreds of corpses were strewn over the site, as well as thousands of prisoners, abandoned because they were too ill or weak for the ‘death march’ into...

Xbox is back in business (pic: Microsoft)The Xbox Series X and S may not have sold more consoles than the PS5 but Microsoft is already outpacing Sony when it comes to subscriptions.

They have said that the Xbox Series X/S is ‘the most successful in Microsoft’s history’ but as good news as that is for them what really matters is that they now have more than 18 million Xbox Game Pass subscribers. Game Pass is the future of Xbox, especially once it can be played on any device via streaming, and the fact that Microsoft are adding 1 million subscribers per month is the most positive news they’ve had in...

Roman Abramovich pulled the plug on Lampard at the start of the week following an alarming run of five defeats from eight games. Chelsea climbed to the top of the Premier League table in early December but Lampard leaves with the club sitting ninth, six points adrift of the top-four places.
