Seamus Coleman has signed a new contract with Everton that will see him remain with the club until 2019.

There was some talk of another club swooping in to grab the Irish right back, but Coleman and Everton have made a successful marriage thus far and his attacking ability is not the easiest thing to replace at his position. Roberto Martinez recently inked a five year deal himself to stay at Goodison Park and Leighton Baines is sticking around as well so the nucleus of the club remains intact.

Eddie Howe has given an injury update on Simon Francis and more ahead of the Cherries' GW26 game with West Brom.

Simon Francis has been ruled out of the weekend's game after suffering a setback to a hamstring problem. Howe also added that playmaker Jack Wilshere is in a race against time to see if he will be ready to face the Baggies. He has had an ankle problem but may still make the game if he comes through a late assessment. Aside from those two, the only major absentee is Callum Wilson, with other players who had niggles feeling refreshed after a two week break. On those players Howe added: "We had a few other players nursing injuries so the two-week break was a good thing to try to get those ones that weren't quite right back to full fitness."

In spite of failing to acquire his signature in the January transfer window, Bournemouth are still rumoured to be chasing the signing of Asmir Begovic.

Eddie Howe looked to replace current starter Artuc Boruc in January to try and deal with Bournemouth's poor defensive record of late. However, Antonio Conte revelaed at the time that Chelsea could not accept an offer for the Bosnian unless both a £12m price tag was met and Chelsea found a new backup for Courtois. Chelsea sought Craig Gordon to pave the way for Begovic to move, but the initiative was ultimately unsuccessful. Begovic has sat idle for most of this season for the Blues, making six appearances in total.

I do not know nothing about the offers for Abel. I don't know nothing about it, what I want is for the players to focus on the team." It was also revealed that Hernandez is back in contention for selection for Saturday's clash after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Aitor Karanka confirmed that Middlesbrough left-back George Friend is among the injury concerns ahead of Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace.

This could be a problem for Boro this weekend as regular right-back Anotonio Barragan has been ruled out and Calum Chambers is also in doubt with a foot injury. On the trio, Karanka said: "We are not 100 per cent with George, Barragan, Calum, and I think the rest are all fit. These three are our concerns." Since neither Friend or Chambers trained this week, this leaves Fabio is the only fit full-back. Given the lack of positional depth, Karanka could be forced to use Ben Gibson or Daniel Ayala at full-back. However, the manager spoke calmly about the injury dilemma: "All of them are full-backs. When something like thinks happens it is not just one, I am calm because we have alternatives."

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney officially put to rest all of the speculation over a move to China.

The United captain has been linked with heavy interest from the Chinese Super League with his agent even engaging in talks with Tianjin Quanjian over a potential move this month that would have made him the highest-paid player in the world. But Rooney released a statement confirming he will not be going anywhere this month despite limited playing time under manager Jose Mourinho: "Despite the interest which has been shown from other clubs, for which I’m grateful, I want to end recent speculation and say that I am staying at Manchester United," declared the Reds' record goalscorer. I hope I will play a full part in helping the team in its fight for success on four fronts. It’s an exciting time at the club and I want to remain a part of it."

The dramatic fall of title-defenders Leicester City has resulted in the firing of manager Claudio Ranieri on Thursday night.

Less than 300 days ago, Ranieri was lifting the Premier League trophy in an improbable end to an seemingly impossible season. Now the club will look to replace the FIFA Coach of the Year with just 13 games remaining and one point away from dropping into the relegation zone. Said Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha: "This has been the most difficult decision we have had to make in nearly seven years since King Power took ownership of Leicester City. But we are duty-bound to put the Club’s long-term interests above all sense of personal sentiment, no matter how strong that might be...But we are now faced with a fight to reach that objective and feel a change is necessary to maximise the opportunity presented by the final 13 games."

Aitor Karanka has revealed Middlesbrough have full-back problems ahead of Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace.

Middlesbrough are in need of win to separate themselves from the relegation zone but could be shorthanded at full-back this weekend, as Calum Chambers and George Friend will need to pass late fitness tests in order to feature against at Selhurst Park. Speaking to the media on Thursday, Karanka said: "Antonio Barragan is out, and we are not 100% with George Friend and Calum Chambers - they are not training with the team so we need to check." While Chambers and Friend would normally be possible replacements for Barragan, Karanka could be forced to shift Ben Gibson to a wide role if the duo is ruled out.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed a trio of key players have returned to training after dealing with a series of minor injuries.

Midfielders James McCarthy and Kevin Mirallas missed the club's scoreless draw with Middlesbrough in Week 25 while star forward Romelu Lukaku was left out of the club's warm-weather trip to Dubai in order to recover from a calf injury. But the trio has returned to full training and look set to take part in the weekend match with Sunderland: "Romelu had a little calf problem but has been back in training for the last three days. James McCarthy and Kevin Mirallas have also trained with the group this week."

Diego Costa will look to extend his exceptional scoring record against Swansea City this weekend.

Costa has scored 15 goals this season, and boasts an impressive track record against Swansea City. After scoring a hat trick in his appearance against the Swans, Costa has scored seven goals in just four matches, including a brace when the sides drew earlier this season. In short, despite a three-match scoring drought, Costa should remain a top play in all formats of fantasy.
