News of a fine for Ryan Bennett and Chris Martin signs for Derby…

Ryan Bennett has been fined £8000 for breaching FA rule E3 – Using abusive, insulting or threatening words in comments that he posted on Twitter.

The comments were made in response to posts sent to him, believed to be by Arsenal fans.

Bennett admitted the charge and has since removed his Twitter account.

As mentioned yesterday, Chris Martin has almost completed a two year deal to sign for Derby County on a free transfer. The deal will formally go through on 1st July when the player’s City contract expires.

Looking back on his time at Norwich City, Martin said: “I got plenty of chances at Norwich, to be fair, but probably not as many as I would have liked in the Premier League. I only played three or four games but that`s the way it goes.

“I went out on loan to try to prove myself and I felt I did myself justice in those loan spells but it didn`t quite work out at Norwich.

“That has obviously led me to Derby and I am delighted to be here.’

All the best, Chris.
