Mamadou Sakho pulled up short with a clear hamstring injury trying to defend Chelsea at the weekend. There's no confirmation yet on the extent of his injury, but surely he'll miss a few weeks.

Sakho has been a valuable defender for Liverpool who, thankfully, have cover in the return of Daniel Agger. With Jon Flanagan suffering from his own hamstring injury, this opens up a return for Aly Cissokho against Hull City.

In a very Tony Pulis move, Crystal Palace have moved to fortify their central defense with Brede Hangeland.

The move will add another veteran physical presence to the Palace defense as they look to build on an exceptional second half of last season after Tony Pulis took over. With Hangeland's health in question over the last two seasons he may be better suited to a reserve role but on a spot basis Pulis will hope he can rediscover the form that made him widely sought-after a few seasons ago.

Swansea boss Garry Monk has confirmed his interest in Tottenham's Kyle Naughton.

Just to keep the Swansea and Tottenham merry-go-round swinging, we have the possibility of Naughton moving to the Liberty Stadium. With Ben Davies and Danny Rose available at left-back, and with new signing Eric Dier capable of covering for Kyle Walker at right-back, the time may be right for Naughton to consider moving on, with Tottenham unlikely to stand in his way.

Tottenham have agreed to sign Sporting Lisbon defender Eric Dier for £4m.

Dier was born in England but moved to Portugal at 10 years of age and has stayed in Lisbon since joining the club's academy as a teenager. The defender has represented England at Under-21 level, can play at center back, right back or defensive midfield and will join Tottenham for a £4million fee subject to completing a medical later today. His arrival could push Michael Dawson closer to the exit door, with a move to Hull remaining a possibility.

Tottenham left-back Danny Rose has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

Rose was expected to leave the club after Ben Davies' arrival from Swansea last month, but this new contract suggests the two left-backs will compete with each other for a starting spot. Rose, who has reportedly impressed new manager Mauricio Pochettino during pre-season, can also play as a winger.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew continues to 'monitor' Loic Remy's situation after a move to Liverpool broke down.

We're no clearer as to why Remy's move to Liverpool broke down, with Harry Redknapp denying claims the striker failed a medical, but for now he remains at QPR. That could change if Alan Pardew formally renews interest in a player who scored 14 goals for Newcastle during last season's impressive loan spell. If Remy can prove his fitness then he would be a fine signing for any Premier League club

James Milner is keeping Manchester City waiting over his plans for the future as he enters the final year of his contract.

This follows a story from earlier in the summer which had suggested Milner has become disillusioned under Manuel Pellegrini and was ready to look for a fresh challenge. The brunt of the 28-year-old's frustrations are down to the fact he started just 17 league games during the campaign, and if a similar situation occurs this season then he's leaving himself free to move on when his contract expires next summer.

Sunderland are prepared to offload Connor Wickham if the Great Escape hero doesn’t pen a new deal at the Stadium of Light, admits Gus Poyet.

Wickham's goals saved Sunderland from relegation last season and he has been in discussions over a new deal all summer, but the club and the player have yet to come to an agreement. The 21-year-old forward is entering the final year of his deal meaning he could leave for a reduced fee next summer if he fails to sign a contract extension, so Poyet has claimed Sunderland will need to cash in now rather than lose millions in 12 months. "For me, Connor’s situation is clear," said Poyet."He needs to sign a new contract or we let him go – we sell him. There is nothing in between."

QPR have stepped up their efforts to sign Morgan Amalfitano from Marseille.

Amalfitano enjoyed a loan spell with West Bromwich Albion last season and impressed on occasions, but a permanent move failed to materialise. The 29-year-old is reportedly still available for a cut-price fee of £2.5million, and he would be a good value signing for QPR if they can pull it off.

Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson has completed a season-long loan move to West Ham United.

With Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers both having arrived, Carl Jenkinson was unlikely to see a great deal of playing time at the Emirates this season. In order to continue his development, Arsenal has loaned him across London to Big Sam's West Ham United. Neither Guy Demel (30 starts at right back and 33-years-old) nor Joey O'Brien (6 RB starts and 28) have a lock on the starting job so Jenkinson should have a chance to earn significant playing time. At 5.15 in the Yahoo game, it is worth tracking Jenkinson's starting status as a potential spot fantasy starter.

Arsenal's aggressive summer of recruiting may be set to continue with reliable sources indicating that Porto attacking midfielder Juan Fernando Quintero may well be moving to the Emirates next week.

With holding midfielder still a glaring need, Arsenal supporters may be wondering why Arsene Wenger is focusing his attention on the very well stocked attacking midfielder spot. At 21 years old, the recruitment of Quintero, if it comes to fruition, may signal the departure of Lukas Podolski and/or Santi Cazorla. Recognizing that both veteran attackers are unlikely to be satisfied with marginal roles now that Alexis Sanchez is in town, Wenger may be taking the opportunity to bring in an even younger reserve and off-load the large salaries being taken home by Cazorla and Podolski.

Reports in multiple places indicate that Marouane Fellaini is likely to be playing for Napoli this coming season with the details of the transaction still to be resolved.

The trend in Italy is for clubs to acquire a new player on a year long loan with the purchase coming in a year's time. While there is a "house of cards" feel to that sort of arrangement from a financial health point of view the trend appears to have been growing among Serie A clubs. Whether Manchester United is willing to not only take a big hit on the price paid for Fellaini just last summer but also wait a year to receive the cash associated with that loss remains to be seen. Assuming that the clubs can agree, it appears that Fellaini is interested in making the switch. Not the proudest chapter in Manchester United's storied history.
