GERMANY: Veolia Verkehr has won a contract to provide about 40% of local rail services in the Leipzig region for two years from December 2009. The private company will take over 12 routes totalling 219 km from DB Regio and operate around 3 million train-km a year.The Leipzig transport authority had originally planned to let a contract to coincide with completion of the €571m cross-city tunnel, when S-Bahn and other local services will be reorganised. Delays in building the tunnel mean that a two-year gap between contracts has opened up, and Veolia negotiated an interim deal running to 2011.A fresh round of tenders is expected for the future Mitteldeutsche S-Bahn network which will operate through the tunnel, and Veolia’s Regional Operations Manager Andreas Trillmich has confirmed that his company will submit a bid when the tender is issued.Local trains along the right bank of the River Rhein between Frankfurt, Wiesbaden and Koblenz will be run by Vias GmbH from December 2010. The company, owned 50% by Rurtalbahn GmbH and 50% by Frankfurt city transport operator VGF, will operate 2·1 million train-km a year, taking over from DB Regio. Air-conditioned EMUs will run at hourly intervals with additional services during peak hours.
Fanatik report Leeds United are in the picture to sign Jason Denayer from Manchester City but the player is only willing to sign for Galatasaray if he leaves the Premier League champions. Galatasaray are looking to loan Denayer again for another season after the Belgian defender won the Turkish League title with the Turkish club. This also means they will be competing the group stages of the Champions League in the next campaign.Despite Denayer reportedly drawing attention from Leeds United, the final decision will be made by the player himself to which club he joins.The Galatasaray board are said to be following the situation very closely as they’re hoping they can get Denayer on a loan deal when the English transfer window closes next Thursday. Turkey’s window will remain open until the end of August.Embed from Getty ImagesLeeds United’s interest in the Belgium international can be questioned and it seems the Turkish media have got ahead of themselves from rumour spreading in the English media.Pep Guardiola is an admirer of Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa, but the Spaniard is unlikely to let Denayer drop down a league if loaned out.The Manchester City boss even had reservations sending him to Galatasaray in his first season at the Etihad and instead loaned him to Sunderland in order to keep the player in the Premier League.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.
