Caddy seeks to end Woods row
GOLF: Tiger Woods’ former caddy Steve Williams admits he regrets his outspoken remarks after he was sacked by the former world No1 last month. After helping Adam Scott to victory in last weekend’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational he claimed it represented the greatest triumph of his career. But ahead of the start of tomorrow’s USPGA Championship in Atlanta, he said: “Looking back on it, I was a bit over the top, I had a lot of anger in me about what happened and it all came out. But, look, it’s time to move on.”

Obertan completes Toon move
FOOTBALL: Newcastle have completed the signing of Manchester United winger Gabriel Obertan on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee. The 22-year-old signed for the Old Trafford giants two years ago but has found first team opportunities hard to come by. “I spent two good years at Old Trafford but it was a bit difficult with the competition,” he said. “I really needed a club where I could play more.”

Stoke complete move for Upson
FOOTBALL: Stoke have signed former West Ham defender Matthew Upson on a free transfer. The 32-year-old left the Hammers at the end of last season and will link up with former England centre back Jonathan Woodgate. Meanwhile, West Ham target Shane Long has completed a £6.5m move to West Brom from Reading. The Republic of Ireland international scored 25 goals last season as the Royals missed out on promotion after losing in the play-off final.
