Adam Cox talks to Nadia Dubiel, a professional speaker and coach with a unique story about the importance of staying true to individuality.

On today's episode, the duo are talking football transfers with sports lawyer and author of Done Deal, Daniel Geey. We ask some of the key questions: Who holds the balance of power?

We also talk about how social media is shaping the modern day footballer – and what Brexit could actually mean for the Premier League in England.
