The roster includes a total of nine players with Premier League experience, including British analysts and fitness coaches, and familiar names from last season, among them Romain Saiss, Arthur Masuaku and Wout Weghorst.

I hope we can have some fun together when Dele is in shape,” the 28-year-old said.
