Random Pagan Verse:
When using geographic boundaries, whenever anyone of Third Degree lives more than a league from the covenstead (or are about to),
any of these may found a new coven; indeed, any Witch living within the covenstead who wishes to form a new coven will inform the elders of this
intention and immediately move to a new dwelling beyond the boundaries of known covensteads. Members of any coven may choose to join the new coven when
it is formed, but they must totally avoid their old coven if they choose this course. The elders of the old and new covens should meet in peace and love
to determine the boundaries of the covens. Any Witch living outside of any two covens may choose to join either coven, but never both. All may meet for
the Great Festivals if the elders agree, so long as they meet in peace and love. Let the elders confer as to the use of this law when it is not directly
applicable. Always be aware that the splitting of a coven breeds bad feelings (energy vortices?); this law was made chiefly for this reason. And may happier times come!

Chelsea set to complete 23m move for Spanish defender

According to the Guardian, negotiations between the two clubs have been underway in recent weeks and the Italian club are expected to accept the Blues' renewed offer of 23m ($30.1m, 27m) for the left-back. The Spanish defender will fill the void left by the departure of Baba Rahman, who has joined Schalke on a season-long loan.

Antonio Conte has been desperate to bring in defensive cover before the close of the transfer window at 11pm BST on Wednesday (31 August) and has seen a number of their approaches knocked back. Chelsea had submitted offers upwards of 30m for Kalidou Koulibaly and Alessio Romagnoli, but both were rejected by Napoli and AC Milan respectively.

The former Italy manager has made strengthening his defence a priority and the imminent arrival of Alonso will allow him to move Cezar Azpilicueta to right-back and have Branislav Ivanovic as backup for John Terry and Gary Cahill at centre-back. Kurt Zouma is also an option, but the Frenchman is currently injured and not expected to return for at least another month.

Chelsea are unlikely to stop their spending with the signing of the Fiorentina defender, as Sky Sports report that they have submitted a shock 30m bid plus add-ons to bring back former defender David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian defender left Stamford Bridge two summers ago in a reported 50m deal, which is a world-record fee for a defender. The report claims that discussions are ongoing with the PSG star, who is said to be keen to return to the Premier League.
