Gus Poyet has refused to rule out the possibility of bringing loan stars such as Alfred N'Diaye back to Sunderland.

N'Diaye was one of Martin O'Neill's signings but Paolo Di Canio lost faith in the player and sent him out on a season-long loan to Turkish side Eskisehirspor back in July. However, the tough tackling midfielder has impressed in Turkey and earned himself an international recall with Senegal, so with Lee Cattermole often suspended it would make sense for Gus Poyet to recall N'Diaye at the earliest opportunity.

Juventus have completed a £17.3m deal to sign loan star Juan Cuadrado permanently from Chelsea.

After two stellar seasons on loan, Juventus have exercised their option to sign Cuadrado on a permanent basis. The Colombia international joined Chelsea in early 2015 from Fiorentina, but returned to Italy the follow season and has since helped the Juve to back-to-back Serie A titles and this season's Champions League final. Cuadrado, who appeared just once at the start of the 2015/16 season before joining Juventus, leaves Stamford Bridge having made just 13 Premier Leauge appearances for Blues.

Manchester United defender Guillermo Varela has scuppered his chances of appearing in the German Cup final for Eintracht Frankfurt as well as his chances of securing a permanent deal at the club.

Varela has been on loan at Frankfurt since last summer and had been due to play the final against Dortmund on Saturday. However, he was ruled out of the final after a tattoo he acquired contrary to the expressed wishes of his German club became infected. The Uruguayan right-back has now been suspended and sent home to Manchester, with a Frankfurt board member quoted as saying "With this action, Guillermo’s time at Frankfurt is over." The club had previously been exploring extending his loan. Manchester United manager José Mourinho is rumoured to be planned to eject Varela from the club this summer.

The agent of Manchester City's Yaya Toure, Dimitri Seluk, said the midfielder has yet to receive a new contract offer from the club.

Contrary to reports in the media, Seluk said he has not heard from the club over a new deal in months with Toure's current contract set to expire in just over a month. But Seluk said his client won't just wait around despite his desire to remain at the club: "I read a lot of stories about a new City contract but I know nothing about this. The last time I spoke to anyone at City was in Monaco in March...There are clubs who have already qualified for next season's Champions League, but for Yaya, Manchester City is a very special club. He has given his heart to the club and he would find it difficult to leave City."

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish confirmed the club will do everything in its power to keep Mamadou Sakho.

The Liverpool defender made only eight Premier League appearances since arriving in the winter transfer window, but the club recorded four clean sheets and five wins in that span before the Frenchman suffered a season-ending injury. But with Liverpool reportedly holding out for £30 million, it could be an uphill battle for Palace to make the loan permanent. "The money needs to work for us and for Liverpool," Parish said. "I'm sure there'll be a negotiation on that. If we can make it work, of course we'd like to, I'm not going to try and be coy or clever on that. He's a very good player and I think he likes being with us. We like him. Let's hope we can do it."

Hull City manager Marco Silva looked to be on the verge of taking charge of Porto in his homeland yesterday. However, it now seems he may stay in England after all.

The Independent are reporting that Silva spent most of Wednesday organising to leave the Hull City job after talks in Portugal broke down over salary and budget. He will begin working out his next step in football on Thursday. Silva, 39, is understood to have impressed Crystal Palace's board by bringing Hull onto the cusp of Premier League survival. He is their primary target to replace Sam Allardyce after he unexpectedly departed. The paper adds that Watford are still keen on attracting the Portuguese's services, while Southampton are understood to have moved him down their shortlist. Burnley's Sean Dyche is also in the running for the job at Selhurst Park but there are a number of large obstacles on both sides which make the chances remote.

US U20 international Gedion Zelalem has reportedly torn his anterior cruciate ligament while playing the the opening match of the tournament for the Stars and Stripes. If confirmed he will miss approximately nine months of action.

If it turns out that the initial diagnosis is correct then this will be a big blow for the 20-year-old midfielder tipped to be an emerging star at both Arsenal and for the US Men's National Team. One of the concerns over Zelalem's development is his slight frame and a long-term injury will not help the perception that he may end up being too frail to compete at the highest level. Zelalem was likely to be loaned out again next season given where he is in his development and the number of creative midfielders ahead of him at the Emirates. This injury will likely mean that he'll have to wait until the 2018-19 season to get his next loan move unless a short term move to Major League Soccer becomes a possibility.

Newcastle has started preparing for their return to the Premier League by making their loan move for Christian Atsu permanent with a 4 year contract after paying a reported £6.2 million transfer fee.

The move seems like a solid one economically for the Magpies as Atsu was productive during his season on Tyneside. Starting just under half of the Magpies' matches in the Championship (15) and coming on in 17 further, he scored five goals and contributed three assists. Certainly not a star contribution but a solid one given his part time role. At 25-years-old though, the question is how much upside Atsu has to improve on his performances taking a step up in competition.

Arsenal are facing a defensive crisis ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup final which may force Arsène Wenger into a change of formation.

The Arsenal manager provided a mixed injury update ahead of his sides Wembley visit. Following on the heels of Laurent Koscielny’s failed attempt to overturn Sundays red-card, Wenger confirmed Gabriel Paulista could be missing for up-to two months after scan results revealed the centre-back damaged his medial knee ligament against Everton. With Shkodran Mustafi [concussion] yet to re-join the group, Arsenal could ditch their 3-4-2-1 formation which has served them so well during the season run-in: "I have to decide until Saturday [whether to keep a back three or not] - we’ll test that in training until then," Wenger said. On a brighter note, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis Sanchez and Kieran Gibbs have returned to full training and all three are in contention for Saturday.

Junior Stanislas has gone under the knife in an attempt to cure his long-standing hernia problem.

The Bournemouth winger finished the season strongly, scoring in his last three appearances, which in return, helped the Cherries to their highest ever Premier League finish. But Stanislas, struggled during the early part of 2017 due to an ongoing groin issue, and he managed just four Premier League starts between the end of January and mid-April. Now the decision has been taken to have surgery in the hope of being fully fit for the start of pre-season. Stanislas was absent from the club’s annual presentation at the BIC on Monday evening, and reports now confirm that the 27-year-old has travelled to Germany for treatment by one of Europe’s leading specialists.

After surviving yet another relegation test, Sam Allardyce has called his time at Crystal Palace after less than one season.

Contrary to initial reports, Allardyce said he is resigning in order to spend more time with his family and get away from managing, not due to a dispute over the club's transfer budget and future plans. His exit marks the end of a turbulent year that started with earning, then losing his job as England manager before starting on at Palace in December. Said Allardyce: "It’s hard walking away now. I think the club are heading in the right direction with a hugely supportive board of directors, a great squad of players and some of the most passionate fans I’ve ever met. It’s been a privilege to have worked here for the past five months...This is the right time for me. I have no ambitions to take another job, I simply want to be able to enjoy all the things you cannot really enjoy with the 24/7 demands of managing any football club, let alone one in the Premier League."

Hull City manager Marco Silva is set to leave the club. However, he will not be returning back to the Premier League according to reports.

The Portuguese manager came close to working a miracle and saving Hull from relegation in his short stint in charge, but it seems he will now depart the club after a meeting with the owners later in the week. Watford were among a number of PL clubs said to be interested in employing him, however, it appears that the pull of Porto in his homeland will win out. Silva reportedly spent Tuesday in Lisbon in discussions with Porto, and has agreed to take charge of the club. While Silva had suggested that staying in England was of greater interest to him, Porto have taken advantage of PL clubs' sluggishness to approach Silva. They sacked their manager after one season in charge on Monday and are now closing in one their first choice replacement.
