Dec. 24 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers with clickable Internet links.

Golden Goodbye

Chelsea will pay Daniel Sturridge 1.5 million pounds ($2.4 million) to join Liverpool in a 12 million-pound trade between the clubs, the Daily Mail reported.

The Blues are adding the sweetener after Sturridge said he’d be happy to stay with the London team until his contract expires in 18 months, according to the Mail.

Golden Oldie

Tottenham will offer 41-year-old goalkeeper Brad Friedel a new contract to stop him joining former team Blackburn, the Daily Mirror reported.

Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas wants to keep the American veteran even though Hugo Lloris has become his first-choice goalie, the Mirror said.

No Tackling

West Ham coach Sam Allardyce said his team won’t do full training over Christmas to avoid more players getting injured, the Daily Mail reported.

Allardyce said his squad is down to the “bare bones” and had to field an 80 percent-fit player in a 2-1 loss against Everton two days ago, the Mail added.

Chelsea Loanee

Romelu Lukaku, who Chelsea has loaned to West Bromwich Albion, said he’s happy to extend his stay with the Baggies through next season, the Daily Express reported.

Lukaku, 19, joined Chelsea for 18 million pounds from Anderlecht last year, and said “I don’t think they need me back” at the moment, the Express said.
