SPEEDBOAT killer Jack Shepherd has pleaded with his victim’s mother for a meeting — and laid into a key witness. In a jail audio recording sent to The Sun, he says he wants to “set the record straight” with Charlotte Brown’s mum Roz Wickens. Jack Shepherd  claims he knows ‘how awful the past few years must have been’ for his victim’s mum Charlotte died when Shepherd’s speedboat flipped on the Thames in December 2015 The web designer, 31, wheedles that he knows “how awful the past few years must have been for her” but adds that there are “many misconceptions”. He then accuses Stacia Read, who saw him acting suspiciously on the night Charlotte died, of being “incorrect in her recollection”. He bleats: “There’s been so many falsehoods that people have built up a picture that in no way resembles the truth.” Shameless Shepherd was recorded by a pal in a Georgian jail where he is awaiting extradition.

TAHITH CHONG is rapidly building a reputation as big as his hair at Old Trafford. Ki-Jana Hoever has got Jurgen Klopp and everyone else at Anfield seriously excited about his terrific talent aged only 17. Premier League starlets Ki-Jana Hoever, Tahith Chong and Daishawn Redan are tipped for the top — but wouldn’t have signed under post-Brexit rules Chelsea fans have been raving about Daishawn Redan, who is predicted to become a Premier League goal machine. Yet the three youngsters have more in common than their potential as precious commodities or that they are Dutch and all were signed from Ajax. For under the forthcoming new regulations after Brexit their clubs would not have been able to sign them. The same would have applied to Bersant Celina, now of Swansea, Pablo Maffeo (Stuttgart), Brahim Diaz (Real Madrid) or Angelino (PSV Eindhoven). All four were brought in to the Manchester academy and sold last summer for a total of £32.5million. Yet City would not now be totting up the proceeds of their investment. For they, like Chong, Hoever and Redan, were all signed between the ages of 16 and 17. Once Brexit officially kicks off, English clubs will not be able to sign anyone from the European Union until the age of 18. Paul Pogba, signed as a 16-year-old from Le Havre in 2011, would not have developed the affinity with United that saw him return to the club as an £89m record buy. That new rule on youngsters is only part of the changes that could have a potentially devastating effect on England’s top clubs and the Prem’s position as the richest in world football. For instance, Riyad Mahrez, post Brexit, would not qualify for a work permit as he did when signing for Leicester from Le Havre in 2014. [article-rail-section title=”most read in football” posts_category=”10″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] He cost a mere £560,000. The Foxes made an astronomical profit when he moved to City for £60m last July. Yet Mahrez was aged 24 when he arrived and was only about to start playing for Algeria, his chosen international country. What he had was a French passport, making him an EU citizen who did not need a Governing Body Endorsement to gain a work permit. Once the UK leaves, all foreign players — European passport holders or not — will need a GBE unless they cost above the Premier League average transfer value and earn massive salaries. That could cost huge amounts in higher fees because selling clubs would use it to their advantage. Currently, non-EU players are vetted by being regular internationals, though how regular depends on Fifa. Those conditions will apply to ALL foreign players once the UK leaves the European Economic Area. Top sports lawyer Paul Shapiro said: “Football needs to know what the position will be post-Brexit, particularly in relation to moving players, moving staff. “The nature of the changes is still up for debate, but they will change.” Owen Jones, a specialist in immigration sports law, added: “The Premier League and the clubs are rightly concerned.” Riyad Mahrez would not have been able to join Leicester before he signed for Man City if the move had come after Brexit [bc_video video_id=”6015010422001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Weekend Round-up: Watch all the best action from the Premier League”]
