Sunderland have confirmed the signings of Maritimo defender Valentin Roberge, Basel midfielder Cabral and Lazio defender Modibo Diakite.

All three men will join the club on free transfers in July and the deal gives a clear signal that Paulo Di Canio is planning to overhaul his squad this summer. The BBC report that the signings have been made on advice from the club's new director of football Roberto De Fanti and chief scout Valentino Angeloni. All change at the Stadium of Light.

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has confirmed that midfielder Namplays Mendy will be available for Saturday's match with Manchester City.

Mendy, who picked up an ankle problem on his debut for Leicester City, returned from a long lay-off in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League match against FC Porto. While Ranieri stated he was pleased with Mendy's return, the manager added: "He’s available, but not to play from the beginning." This means Daniel Amartey and Andy King are expected to start, with Danny Drinkwater unavailable through suspension, while Mendy's usage against Manchester City would likely come in the form of a substitute cameo.

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel could make his return from injury as early as next Tuesday's trip to Bournemouth, says manager Claudio Ranieri.

Schmeichel has not played since fracturing his hand against FC Copenhagen in early November but is progressing well and could potentially return as early as next week, according to Ranieri. While it appears that Saturday's fixture with Manchester City may come too soon for Schmeichel's return, Raneiri said: "Kasper is getting better and maybe he is ready for Bournemouth." If the Danish international is unable for either match, Ron-Robert Zeiler will continue to start.

Manager Antonio Conte has confirmed that attacking midfielder Oscar and defender John Terry will be unavailable for Sunday's clash with West Brom.

Oscar, who was named to the 18-man squad against Manchester City but did not feature last weekend, will miss Sunday's fixture with West Brom through illness. Conte also confirmed that John Terry will be unavailable as he's still recovering from a muscular problem. The omissions will likely see Nathaniel Chalobah and Ola Aina return their places on the bench, while Nemanja Matic is expected to be in contention for the starting XI.

Influential midfielder Nemanja Matic, who missed last weekend through injury, is fit to play for Chelsea against West Brom on Sunday.

Matic was a surprise omission from Antonio Conte's starting XI last weekend, due to a muscle injury, but is set to make his return this weekend. According to Chelsea's official Twitter feed, Conte has confirmed that Matic has trained since Tuesday and is fit. This means Matic will likely regain his place in the starting XI for Sunday's clash with West Brom. However, if Matic is unavailable then Cesc Fabregas would be favored to replace the Serbian international.

Jurgen Klopp announced that Joel Matip will not be joining up with the Cameroon national team for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in January, much to the Liverpool manager's delight.

Cameroon would surely have Matip near the top of their center back depth chart but the Liverpool defender has opted out of the competition and will continue to be a steady presence in Jurgen Klopp's back line. While Matip, along with the rest of the Reds defense, hasn't been too productive in most fantasy formats (barring leagues where James Milner qualifies as a defender), those that own him will be happy to have one less player to worry about when AFCON rolls around. Matip is looking to shake off an ankle problem ahead of this weekend.

Sadio Mane has been training this week and should be over the knock he picked up last weekend and available for Liverpool when they play West Ham United on Sunday.

Mane limped off early last weekend against Bournemouth, many thinking the event was the catalyst that led to the thrilling come-from-behind win by the Cherries. The Senegalese attacking player has been in training this week and all signs point to him playing against the Hammers. An added benefit, the match is the final one of the gameweek, late Sunday, so it offers Mane that extra day or so to be match-ready.
Dec 9 - 9:10 AM

Sean Dyche confirmed in his press conference leading up to Burnley's match against Bournemouth this weekend that Tom Heaton should be in contention.

Heaton has missed the past two league games with a calf injury but it sounds as though, barring a setback, the first choice keeper will be back between the sticks versus the Cherries on Saturday. Veteran Paul Robinson has been starting in Heaton's place and, while showing himself well against the Citizens two weekends ago, he looked a bit shaky against Stoke this past weekend, so Heaton's return would be a welcome one both for Burnley and for many fantasy managers.

Bob Bradley announced that he has a fully fit squad as Swansea City prepare to take on Sunderland this weekend with the exception of Federico Fernandez and Ki Sung-yueng who are both out with a broken toe.

There are not many positive vibes coming out of South Wales these days as the Swans are coming off another lopsided loss where they were the vastly inferior opponent. Bradley has just one win at the helm, and that was a wacky 5-4 result against Crystal Palace. Ki has missed time through injury already and has only made five starts in Swansea's fourteen league games thus far while Fernandez has started just three of Bradley's seven games in charge. With Mike van der Hoorn and Jordi Amat the center back partnership that allowed Spurs to score five goals last week, there's a good chance one will drop for Alfie Mawson, but there is little to be excited about for fantasy purposes and perhaps even less excitement for Swansea supporters at present time.

Junior Stanislas will be back to the Bournemouth first team in a matter of weeks rather than months.

The news came through in Eddie Howe's press conference this morning. It's a blow to the Cherries, as Stanislas was performing well before his ankle issues. He went off injured just before the hour mark in the Liverpool match last weekend and was replaced by the game-winner, Ryan Fraser. He will now be hoping to be rewarded for his Man of The Match performance with a start at Burnley on Saturday.
Dec 9 - 5:59 AM

Bournemouth's versatile defender Nathan Ake is set to start his fourth Premier League game in a row against Burnley on Saturday.

Ake, who scored the last gasp winner against Liverpool in GW14, has given some fine displays for the Cherries in his recent spell filling in for both Adam Smith who was suspended and Charlie Daniels who was injured. However, Daniels has now recovered and will return to his centre-back berth on Saturday. It is expected that Howe will not drop Ake, and instead will make way at left back for the Chelsea loanee by relegating Adam Smith to the bench.
Dec 9 - 6:03 AM

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed in his press conference ahead of Tottenham's showdown with Manchester United this weekend that left back Ben Davies is available again for selection.

With Toby Alderweireld returning midweek in a substitute appearance for Tottenham's final Champions League match, a healthy Davies now means Spurs are at full strength at the back. Davies should return as cover for Danny Rose but the absence of Alderweireld may give Spurs reason to think about adding a center back in the January window. It will be another week or two before Vincent Janssen and Erik Lamela come back into contention for the attack but a full strength defense will be good news for fantasy managers invested in Tottenham's back line.
