Chelsea skipper John Terry has been named as the permanent England captain by manager Fabio Capello.

In an announcement at the team’s Watford training base, fellow central defender Rio Ferdinand has been named as the vice-captain despite many pundits tipping the Manchester United star for the armband.

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has signed a new contract with the Gunners.

The 24-year-old Togo international was strongly linked with Barcelona and AC Milan this summer before announcing he would be staying at the Emirates.

Adebayor, who scored 30 goals in 48 games last season, only signed his previous contract in the summer of 2007 but has negotiated an improved deal.

midfielder Jermaine Jenas has been called up to the England squad for the friendly international against Czech Republic on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old replaces injured former team-mate Michael Carrick, who has been withdrawn as a result of an ankle injury.

A statement on Arsenal’s website said: “We can confirm Emmanuel has signed a new long-term contract with the club.”

The new deal, reported to be worth around £80,000 a week is set to tie the striker to the club until at least 2012

Tottenham Hotspur’s Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has officially confirmed his desire to move to Manchester United.

He spoke for the first time about his wish to join United, urging Spurs to let him “follow my dream”, guardian.co.uk said. Still, Berbatov insisted he wanted to leave the club on good terms.

“I’m still a Tottenham player, but no one can disagree with me wanting to follow my dream,” Berbatov was quoted as saying.
