Shane Long will be evaluated after coming off in the 77th minute of Hull City's 2-0 win over his former team West Brom on Saturday.

Shane Long has only come off the pitch two other times since coming to Hull City in January and one of those was as a time wasting tactic with his team up 2-0 in the dying minutes. The fact that he came limping off after 77 minutes on Saturday may seen him miss some Hull City's midweek match. Watch this space for further updates covering Week 32 and beyond.

Emre Can is expected to miss the final group game of the 2017 Confederations Cup tomorrow after picking up an injury in training.

The Liverpool midfielder has featured in both matches of the tournament so far, but Joachim Low must wait until Can is fully assessed before making a decision on his involvement on Sunday. "During training, Emre Can has sustained a minor injury," he told reporters. "He bent over on the pitch. His boot got stuck in the grass. We will have to see how he feels because he had to break off training." Germany are gunning for top spot in Group B - they currently sit in second place on goal difference - but Low did confirm he would make "three or four changes" for the clash with Cameroon. First place would see Germany face off against Mexico in the semi-finals, while finishing runners-up will mean the World Cup winners take on Portugal, the European Champions.

Michail Antonio says his recovery from hamstring surgery in April is "going well" and he is on schedule to be ready for the start of the new season.

The West Ham winger is currently enjoying some time away from football after marrying his long-term partner. "Thankfully the injury didn’t put the wedding in doubt," he told Sportsmail. "I’ll be honest, I was close to having to walk up the aisle on crutches." Antonio did take his physio to the stag doo in Las Vegas "but thankfully" he didn’t need to take him on the honeymoon! The 27-year-old was one of several West Ham players to go under the knife last term with a view to being ready for the start of the new campaign. Cheikhou Kouyate [wrist], Mark Noble [hernia], Angelo Ogbonna and Winston Reid [both knee] and Pedro Obiang [ankle] are all expected to rejoin the squad when they reconvene for pre-season in July.

After reportedly rejecting an £11 million bid from Napoli two days ago, Liverpool are said to be considering an offer from Swansea City for Spanish left-back Alberto Moreno.

The 24-year-old was named in the starting XI at Arsenal on the opening weekend of 2016/17, playing 90 minutes in 4-3 victory, but after his nightmare at the Emirates, Moreno had to wait until October for his one and only other Premier League start. He was canned for his performance which prompted pundit Gary Neville to describe Moreno as "absolute garbage" while former Liverpool legend Graeme Souness was similarly unimpressed adding "he’s having a stinker!" James Milner demonstrated his versatility starting the other 36 matches, scoring seven goals and providing three assists. The bid from Swansea is believed to be in the region of £13 million, although Liverpool want nearer £15 million for the player who is surplus to requirements at Anfield.

Southampton have announced that Mauricio Pellegrino has been appointed as their new manager.

Pellegrino, 45, replaces Claude Puel in the post after he was sacked earlier this month after just one season in charge. Pellegrino, a native of Argentina, had been jobless since he resigned as manager of La Liga side Alaves following their Spanish Cup Final defeat to Barcelona in May. Along with their cup run, Pellegrino also led the newly-promoted team to a ninth place finish in La Liga. "My philosophy and the culture of the club will work well," said Pellegrino, who has signed a three year contract. "I want to win matches, be successful and develop a team spirit where everyone gives 100% and supports each other... I am excited and passionate about what the future holds." Southampton Vice Chairman Les Reed explained that Pellegrino was chosen as [Pellegrino] impressed [them] with his depth of knowledge, motivation and ability, communicating this in a professional and passionate way."

Manchester United striker and captain Wayne Rooney has been told he can leave the club this summer, but he is struggling to find a potential destination.

Rooney has been at Old Trafford for 13 years since arriving as a young man from Everton but he has been informed that he can leave the club this transfer window if he wishes even though he has a year to run on his current contract. There has been a lack of genuine interest from potential suitors for Rooney, who is reluctant to go to China or the Middle East with his family. Presumed interest from MLS sides has not materialised, while Rooney's boyhood club Everton have recoiled early interest as the club's upper echelons has signalled their disapproval of such an expensive deal for the declining player. The Red Devils are holding out for a trasnfer fee for Rooney's services and are not keen on a loan deal where they are forced to contribute to Rooney's £300,000 per week salary. The future is in Wayne's hands, stay at United and earn good money, or take a pay cut to fight for regular first team minutes elsewhere.

Ronald Koeman is said to keen on adding Burnley striker Andre Gray to the Everton ranks as they plan for life without Belgium international Romelu Lukaku.

Gray features high on Koeman’s wish list while Oumar Niasse could be used as a make weight in any deal with the Clarets keen on bringing the 27-year-old to Turf Moor following his successful six-month loan spell at relegated club Hull City [4-goals + one assist from 12 Premier League starts]. Niasse was signed by Roberto Martinez towards the end of his reign, arriving at Everton in a deal worth around £13.5 million, but one 45-minute run out was all that it took for Koeman to decide the Senegalese striker did not have a future at the club. He was stripped of his shirt number and ordered to train with the Under-23s. However, a move to the KCOM in January provided Niasse with the perfect platform to prove the doubters wrong, and his performances for the Tigers went someway to justifying his hefty price tag while proving he can deliver in the top-flight.

Huddersfield Town are set to battle it out with West Ham United for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

According to bookmakers Skybet, West Ham and Huddersfield Town have been made 3/1 joint favorites to land Wilshere this summer. The 25-year-old spent 2016/17 on with Bournemouth, making 29 Premier League appearances and providing two assists before missing the final month of the season with a hairline fracture in his leg. And with just one year left on his current contract at the Emirates it is believed the Gunners are open to offers for the England international. However, recent reports suggest that Arsenal has yet to receive an enquiry to sign him on loan or permanently in the summer transfer window.

Swansea are expected to announce their first signing of the summer, a deal which will see Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham join as part of a season long loan.

Newcastle had been favourites to sign the 21-year-old who is currently representing England at the Under-21 European Championships, but it now appears that Abraham is keen to work with manager Paul Clement, whom he played under as part of the Chelsea youth team. His arrival should kick-start the beginning of Swansea’s summer spending with chairman Huw Jenkins confirming there will be more players arriving through the door: "A lot of work is going on, and has been going on since the last window in January, but there is not much action at the minute. The next couple of weeks will see things get clearer as pre-season starts and it will focus minds." Swansea are believed to be in a three-way battle to sign Hull City midfielder Sam Clucas while reports suggest Clement has enquired about former Liverpool centre-back Martin Skrtel who is currently plying his trade in Turkey.

Liverpool have agreed to terms with AS Roma for the transfer of Mohamed Salah at a fee of £34.3m, signing a five-year deal.

Salah will officially link up with the Reds on July 1, but the deal is done. Salah is no stranger to the Premier League, having spent two seasons and change with Chelsea, though his first team chances were few and far between over that span. Since then, he has blossomed in Serie A, playing for both Fiorentina and Roma. He contributed 15 goals last season for a club that only Juventus could best on points. The Egyptian international is still only 25 years old, and could make a big impact in his second PL spell. His addition gives Jurgen Klopp four class options in his front three, along with Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho, though he could get all four on the pitch if Coutinho dropped back into the midfield. That potential scenario would take a hit to Coutinho's fantasy appeal, though not as much as one might think when you consider the Brazilian is tops in the league for goals scored from outside the area.

Tottenham are potential suitors for Everton's want-away Ross Barkley, but Spurs are confident the Toffees asking price is inflated and will wait to cut a potential deal when the England international's transfer fee lowers.

Barkley is one of the biggest domestic names on the market this summer but Tottenham aren't exactly in need of his services. When it comes to attacking midfielders who thrive in a central role, Spurs are already boasting two world class talents in Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli. The club's summer shopping priority is replacing the departing Kyle Walker at right back and it looks as though second on the checklist is a more natural wide attacking midfielder, as Spurs have recently shown interest in AC Milan's Suso and FC Schalke's Max Meyer. So the lack of need and the shrewd reputation of owner Daniel Levy combines to make a Barkley-to-Spurs move simmering low on the hot stove.

Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez is closing in on a move away from Southampton.

Newcastle and Burnley are rumoured to be interested in securing his signature but it's Tony Pulis at West Brom who is most keen. Since rupturing an anterior cruciate ligament towards the back end of the 2013/14 campaign, when Rodriguez broke through the 15 goal barrier in the league, "JRod" has struggled to get regular game time at St Mary's. He made 34 appearances for Southampton last season, starting just 9 PL games and scoring just 6 in all competitions. Thus, a move away had been anticipated for the forward, who has nearly left the club in both of the last two transfer windows. The Baggies are willing to pay £12 million to bolster their options up top as they had just Hal Robson-Kanu and Solomon Rondon leading their line last season. A deal is unlikely to be completed imminently as Rodriguez is on vacation.
