West Bromwich Albion will soon become the latest English football club to be bought out by Chinese investors. Joao Cancelo Jersey .The Premier League team said Friday that Yunyi Guokai (Shanghai) Sports Development Limited, headed by entrepreneur Lai Guochuan, will complete a takeover of the club, subject to approval by the league and English financial authorities.Lai oversaw the development of the landscaping company Palm, which started out as a plant nursery business and now develops eco-towns in China and is worth 1.8 million pounds ($2.36 million). He has purchased an 88 percent stake in the club owned by chairman Jeremy Peace, who is stepping down.West Brom said the financial terms of the deal are private and confidential between the parties. Peace, who has invited offers for investment since 2008, had reportedly valued West Brom at 150 million pounds ($200 million).In a statement, the 42-year-old Lai described himself as a lifelong football fan and said he was excited and privileged to become the new owner of West Brom, which has been in Englands top division since 2010.West Brom said Lai was drawn to the club by its history, community focus and dedicated fan base.My immediate priorities will be to maintain the clubs stable structure, respecting its well-run nature and its heritage, said Lai, who will remain based in China but promised to frequently attend matches at The Hawthorns. I have no intention of changing the clubs ethos.Lai joins a growing number of wealthy Chinese tycoons and companies making splashy investments in English football.Aston Villa, which was relegated from the Premier League last season for the first time, was taken over by Chinese businessman Xia Jiantong in June. Second-tier team Wolverhampton Wanderers was bought out by Chinese conglomerate Fosun International in July in a 100 percent takeover. And a Chinese firm bought a stake in Birmingham, another League Championship club.West Brom, Villa, Wolves and Birmingham are all clubs in central England.Manchester City also announced in December that China Media Capital Holdings and CITIC Capital were investing $400 million to buy 13 percent of the Premier League clubs umbrella organization.Lai said in a personal message to West Brom fans on the clubs website that China was entering a golden age for football.China has a massive football fan base, which has only been growing in the past years, he said. There is also a real commitment, strongly supported by the government, to develop football and its culture in China, and I am convinced that this transaction will serve to reinforce the love of football, while bringing West Bromwich Albion millions of new dedicated fans.Peace stands down after 14 years in the role. He will stay on in an advisory capacity for the coming season, which begins in a weeks time. He will be replaced as chairman by John Williams, who previously had the same role at the English club Blackburn.I believe this deal will enable Albion to build on the strong, sustainable foundations that have been the cornerstone of the clubs progress, Peace said. Mattia De Sciglio Jersey . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. Emre Can Jersey .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Dallas Cowboys dynamic rookie duo is showing no signs of slowing down.Quarterback Dak Prescott beat the Green Bay Packers depleted secondary through the air. Running back Ezekiel Elliott wore the defense down on the ground.Prescott threw three touchdown passes and Elliott pounded away at the Packers for 157 yards on 28 carries in Dallas 30-16 road win Sunday.Thats how we play with our physical style, Elliott said. A lot of teams, they dont want to bang in there for four quarters and as the game goes on, we get stronger and they get a little bit weaker.The surging Cowboys (5-1) won their fifth straight with Prescott and Elliott reaching new milestones.Elliott now has 703 yards rushing, the second-most in a players first six career games behind only Eric Dickerson (787). Elliott also became the only rookie to rush for at least 130 yards in four consecutive games.Prescott was 18 of 27 for 247 yards. He shook off two fumbles -- losing one -- and an interception to lead Dallas on a seven-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that ended with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley for an 18-point lead with 10:26 left over Green Bay (3-2).Prescott is starting for veteran Tony Romo, who injured his back in the preseason. Romo seems to be getting healthier and could be close to returning. Following a bye, the Cowboys next play on Oct. 30 against the Philadelphia Eagles.Prescott is making coach Jason Garretts impending decision on whether to go back to Romo tougher every week.This is his team. This is Tonys team and Im just here to help my team win each and every game that I can, Prescott said.There is no quarterback controversy in Green Bay, though there are plenty of questions about the state of the passing game.Four turnovers ultimately doomed the Packers. But once again, drops were a problem a few times with receivers. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was 31 of 42 for 294 yards, but also accounted for two turnovers with an interception and fumble.Taking care of the ball, thats the No. 1 priority. We had opportunities today and gave it up, and multiple times, and thats never been something weve done here, receiver Jordy Nelson said. So weve got to get that fixed quickly.Other notes and takeaways from Sundays game:BOO BIRDS: Even Rodgers wasnt immuune from the uncharacteristic boos from Packers fans at times directed at the struggling offense. Cheap Juventus Jersey. Look, were upset, theyre upset, its part of it, Rodgers said of the booing. Its not the first time. Probably wont be the last time. The Packers didnt get into the end zone until Rodgers and Cobb connected on a 6-yard touchdown pass with 6:53 left to get within 27-16.RECORD STREAK OVER: Prescott threw the first interception of his career after he was picked off on third-and-8 from the Dallas 6, throwing out of his end zone with 20 seconds left in third quarter. Safety Morgan Burnett had the diving interception. Prescotts NFL-record streak for a quarterback at the start of his career without an interception ended at 176 pass attempts. He broke the mark of 162 previously held by New Englands Tom Brady earlier in the game.STRENGTH VS. STRENGTH: Dallas dented Green Bays league-best run defense . The Cowboys rushed for 93 yards in the first half against the Packers, which was already a season high against Green Bay. The Packers had been allowing 42.8 yards per game entering Sunday, while Dallas was averaging a league-best 155.2 yards per game.Whether its winning your 1-on-1 matchups or getting off blocks or just finishing the play, really, overall it just wasnt good enough, Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said.LATE TURNAROUND: After a three-and-out late in the second quarter for the Packers, the Cowboys went on five-play, 97-yard scoring drive in just 33 seconds, ending with Prescotts 20-yard touchdown pass to Brice Butler. The score gave Dallas an 11-point lead and momentum going into halftime.It was Dallas longest touchdown drive since a three-play, 98-yard scoring drive against the St. Louis Rams on Oct. 23, 2011.THINNED OUT: The Packers thin secondary, which was already without CBs Sam Shields (concussion) and Quinten Rollins (groin), lost CB Damarious Randall in the second quarter after he aggravated a groin injury. McCarthy has already ruled out Rollins for Thursday nights game against Chicago.---AP NFL website: and Genaro Armas at: Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys White Cheap Authentic Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Camo China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Discount Jerseys China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Youth NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
