Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Cardiff City midfielder Craig Noone will be out for the remainder of the season due to his abdominal injury.

Cardiff are in no shape to afford bad news and Noone was developing into a influential figure in his wide role. Despite having just one goal and assist in the league this season, he was developing nicely and was praised for his contributions during some of the Bluebirds positive results. The loss means the likes of Wifried Zaha and Mats Moller Daehli should see their share of pitch time for the run in.

Manchester United's midfield stalwart Michael Carrick has signed a one year extension to his contract which will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2018.

The 35 year old playmaker's contract was due to expire in June, and Carrick had previously suggested that he would hang up his boots if no offer materialised from United. Carrick signed for Alex Ferguson's side from Spurs back in 2006 and has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell at the club since then. The veteran was relegated to a bit-part role in the early stages of José Mourinho's reign this term, making just three PL appearances before December. As United toiled, the manager turned toward Carrick's game management and ball-playing skills to add an edge to the team in possession. The experiment was successful and Carrick nailed down a regular starting role to compliment Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera. Carrick is "delighted" to be staying at the club, while Mourinho similarly expressed that sentiment.

Manchester United full-back Antonio Valencia has signed a new contract which will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2019, with an option to extend that by a further 12 months.

The Ecuadorian right-back arrived at United in 2009 from Wigan originally as a midfielder. In the last few years he has undergone a transformation to become one of the PL's best right-backs to the extent that he has put pen to paper on this deal just months after being rewarded with an extension to his previous contract in January. United manager José Mourinho hailed the news that United's Players' Player of the Year would be at Old Trafford for longer: "... I truly believe it is a real privilege for us to have such a good player and such a good man. I am delighted he has extended his contract." Valencia appeared 44 times for the Red Devils this season, scoring once against Middlesbrough. "Manchester United has been my life since 2009 and I am absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract," he said in the club's official statement.

Unsurprisingly, the future of Jordan Pickford has been afforded a lot of column inches recently with West Ham being the latest club linked to the Sunderland stopper.

The 23-year-old started the 2016/17 campaign as second choice to Vito Mannone, but following a serious elbow injury in August, Pickford grabbed his chance to shine as the Black Cats number one and hasn’t looked back. Pickford was one of six candidates nominated for PFA Young Player of the Year award, but despite missing out on the big prize, he did pick up an award for North East Young Player [from the Football Writers’ Association] and the supporters Young Player of the Year. His performances haven’t gone unnoticed, and following Sunderland’s relegation to the Championship, Pickford is expected to leave the Stadium of Light. Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Everton have all been linked with the future England star and now it seems as if West Ham would like to join the party with Adrian plus cash being dangled to tempt the manager less Black Cats to part with their prize asset.

Manchester United defender Guillermo Varela has hit back at Eintracht Frankfurt after he was suspended and fined by the club for getting a tattoo against the wishes of coach Niko Kovac.

News broke earlier this week that the 24-year-old would be returning to United, his parent club with immediate effect, a move which meant the Uruguayan would miss this weekend’s DFB Pokal final. In an official statement, Frankfurt announced that Varela’s arm had become infected and that he would head back to Manchester effectively bringing an end to his season long loan deal. But Varela has hit back at the club’s handling of the situation: "I've been nailed to the cross as if I'd violently attacked the coach or done something else," he told German magazine Sueddeutsche Zeitung. "I wonder what Real Madrid would have to do with Sergio Ramos. He gets tattooed every week. I can't explain why I've been punished so hard." Varela went onto add that he would "never do anything to harm my team" and that he feels his name has been "besmirched" as a consequence.

Mino Raiola, the agent of Zlatan Ibrahimović, insists the Swedish superstar is still attracting a lot of interest despite being currently sidelined by a serious knee injury.

Ibrahimović ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in April, and following reconstruction surgery in the United States earlier this month, he is expected to miss the remainder of 2017. However, amid suggestion that he may never play competitively again, Raiola believes his client still has at least one more season in him, most likely within Europe, although there are no guarantees that it will be at United. Zlatan stalled on signing a one year extension to his current deal, which means he will become a free agent when his contract expires at the end of June. "I do not know if he will stay at Manchester United, many clubs want him," Raiola told Sky Sports. "Ibrahimović will certainly play for another season or probably two. We will talk about his future. He has many offers, certainly he will stay in Europe."

Led by goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley Stadium to win the 2016-17 FA Cup title.

After a season that saw the club and manager heavily criticized for finishing fifth in the league there was a silver lining in the form of an FA Cup title. Not only did the Gunners best league champions Chelsea but they were the better side for long stretches of the match. They could have easily scored five on the day with Ramsey, Ozil, and Welbeck going close in addition to the two goals they did score. The win was all the more impressive with Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi, and Gabriel all missing from Arsenal's central defense.

Manchester City has wasted no time in reshaping its squad with the signing of Monaco midfielder Bernardo Silva.

It's been a busy week at Manchester City, just days after the club secured its Champions League status with a fourth-place finish, as the Sky Blues released Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas, Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta and Willy Caballero. But just a day later, Guardiola pulled off a massive swoop for coveted 23-year-old Monaco playmaker Bernardo Silva in a £43.6 million move on a five-year contract. The Portuguese international recorded 10 goals and 10 assists this season for Ligue 1 winners Monaco.

West Ham announced its first signing of the summer with a move for Manchester City's Pablo Zabaleta.

The long-time Manchester City defender left the Sky Blues after nine seasons, which included two Premier League titles, to join the Hammers on a two-year deal in a free transfer. The 32-year-old said he turned down offers from across Europe in order to remain in the Premier League and will now compete with Sam Byram for the starting right-back spot. ""Sometimes a new challenge is all you need as a person and as a player. I thought my time at City was done. It’s been a fantastic nine years, absolutely brilliant," Zabaleta said. :Manchester City gave me the opportunity to come to this wonderful league, the Premier League, something I’ve been enjoying a lot as a player and of course for me it was probably the right time to move on."

There were a few notable omissions from Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead of their international double header in June.

Captain Wayne Rooney has been left out for the upcoming games against Scotland and France because of the "good form" of other players, while contract rebel Ross Barkley, is apparently nursing a minor injury which he picked up on the final day at the Emirates. Burnley centre-back Michael Keane has not recovered from the calf strain which has kept him sidelined since the end of April, however, teammate Tom Heaton retains his place. Surprisingly, Jermain Defoe is one of four named strikers - Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford – join the Bournemouth bound 34-year-old. Southampton duo Nathan Redmond and James Ward-Prowse, who earned their first senior caps in March, have been selected for the Under-21s ahead of the European Championships in June.

Danny Welbeck admits an ongoing foot problem has limited his game-time during the season the run-in.

Although his injury is not considered serious, the Arsenal forward revealed the niggling complaint makes it difficult to play matches in quick succession: "It's just a bruise on the bottom of my foot. So, any time I'm running on it, then I'm just repeatedly banging on the bruise," he said. The England international was reflecting on another injury hampered campaign, after knee surgery last year meant Welbeck had to wait until January before making his first Premier League appearance. He was restricted to just 8 league starts, the first of which didn’t come until March. "You do get your little niggles here and there, and it's something that you've got to cope with. But I feel like I've been handling it pretty well, and I've had no major reactions with my knees." Welbeck will compete with Olivier Giroud for a place in Saturdays FA Cup final side.
