Dwight Gayle has been tipped to join Crystal Palace from Peterborough United for £6m this week.

With last season's goal-scoring sensation Glenn Murray out for a prolonged period with a knee injury and Wilfried Zaha gone to Manchester United it will be critical for Palace to add to their attack. In Gayle they potentially add part of the mix. The 22 year-old scored 13 goals in 29 matches for Peterborough United. Not the physical presence that Murray is, Gayle will bring some of the pace lost when Zaha left.

West Brom have continued their roster overhaul with the loan signing of young Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom.

West Brom continue to add numbers and versatility to their defensive corps with the signing of England U21 defender Andre Wisdom. At the fringes of the Liverpool squad for a few years and coming off a year-long loan with Derby County in the Championship last season, a step up to the bottom half of the Premier League makes sense for the player and both clubs. With Gareth McAuley returning, Joleon Lescott, Chris Baird and Sebastien Pocognoli already added, and Costa Rican right back Christian Gamboa reportedly on his way as well, it isn't clear that Wisdom will be a starter. The real question is whether he will win out over Baird as the primary reserve at center back and right back for the Baggies. Wisdom's one hope for starting action is that Gamboa's attacking strengths are utilized farther up the field.

Bosnia & Herzegovina midfielder Muhamed Besic is apparently moments away from signing with Everton as their official website has announced he is already travelling with the squad to Thailand.

The 21 year old Besic started games for Bosnia & Herzegovina in the World Cup and must have impressed Martinez enough to scoop him up. Besic is a defensive mid by trade, so the addition creates a bit of a log jam at the position. Gareth Barry signed a three year deal over the summer to make a permanent move, Darron Gibson is returning to fitness and James McCarthy was a regular in the Toffee XI last year. It is not a bad problem to have, but once Gibson is fit, Martinez will be tasked to please four players pushing for two spots.

Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell has joined Crystal Palace.

Sky Sports had already reported that a fee had been agreed between Crystal Palace and Cardiff, before Premier League new-boys Leicester City tried to gazump the deal by meeting Campbell's release clause. However, talks with the Foxes collapsed and the BBC have now confirmed that a £900,000 deal taking Campbell to Selhurst Park has been completed.

Swansea City have signed winger Jefferson Montero to a four year contract after a transfer was agreed with Mexican club Morelia.

The Ecuadorian international, who started all three of their World Cup games, can play on either side of the wing and looks to be a replacement for the soon to be departing Pablo Hernandez. While held without a goal in the Cup, he has netted 8 timed for his country in 43 caps. He projects to be a regular sooner rather than later, so keep an eye on his price tag.

Manchester City stepped up their preparations for their Premier League title defence with a 4-1 victory over MLS champions Sporting Kansas City on Thursday.

After a shaky start to pre-season Manchester City have got things going, with back to back victories in Scotland and the US. The goals in this 4-1 win came from Bruno Zuculini, Dedryck Boyata, Kelechi Iheanacho and pre-season penalty taker Aleksandar Kolarov, who has taken on the duty in the absence of Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero. New signing Willy Caballero featured in goal, while Micah Richards got a rare run-out in the second half.

Glenn Murray and Jake Gray were on target as Crystal Palace began their US tour with a 2-2 stalemate against Columbus Crew.

Murray continued his solid start to pre-season with his third goal in two games, as Palace were held to a draw in Ohio. The striker missed the majority of the Eagles' return to the Premier League last season as he recovered from a cruciate ligament injury, but he's looking sharp as Tony Pulis continued to ease him back in with another 45 minutes of action. As the club's designated penalty taker, Murray could prove a handy budget option for the Yahoo fantasy game, priced at less than £3million.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has completed his move to Swansea from Tottenham.

Sigurdsson spent the 2011/12 season on loan at Swansea from Hoffenheim and had an extremely successful spell, scoring seven goals, but the resulting move to Spurs never really worked out. He returns to the Liberty Stadium on a permanent basis as part of the deal that saw Ben Davies and Michel Vorm move in the opposite direction. The move makes sense for both the clubs and the player, and would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty under Garry Monk's stewardship.

Record-signing Erik Lamela scored twice in the first half as Tottenham beat FC Toronto 3-2 in a pre-season friendly.

Is this the first sign of the "new lease of life" Lamela mentioned in an interview earlier in the week? The winger was excellent in the first half of this match, looking fit, sharp and showing a good understanding with team-mates Christian Eriksen, Aaron Lennon and Roberto Soldado. Lamela hit two good strikes with his left foot - both assisted by Soldado - with substitute Andros Townsend adding the winner late in the game after Toronto had fought back from two goals down. This was another good work out for Mauricio Pochettinho's squad, although five goals conceded in two games will be a slight concern, even at this early stage of pre-season.

Argentine club Newell's Old Boys have confirmed the signing of Sunderland striker Ignacio Scocco.

As we discussed yesterday, Scocco signed in January and was expected to provide competition for Steven Fletcher and Jozy Altidore, but the move has been a disaster. The 29-year-old striker failed to start a game or score a goal after his arrival, as Gus Poyet limited him to just six disappointing Premier League appearances from the bench, and Sunderland have decided to cut their losses. Scocco is returning for his third spell at the Argentine club.

Mauro Zarate scored his first goal for West Ham United in their 2-1 loss to Wellington Phoenix.

Zarate was acquired to support Andy Carroll in attack but with the big man getting injured again, Zarate could find himself leading the line for West Ham at the beginning of the season. He costs £5.50M in the Yahoo game and is listed as a midfielder, making him a bargain for fantasy managers. To make the deal sweeter, West Ham have a favorable schedule to start the season with games against Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Southampton, and Hull City. Enner Valencia also gets a big bump with Andy Carroll's injury struggles.

Ben Davies and Michel Vorm have both completely their moves from Swansea City to Tottenham Hotspur today according to the Spurs official Twitter feed.

Both moves have been in the press as being essentially done deals for over a week but today brings official word that Spurs have a new left back in Ben Davies and a new goalkeeper in Michel Vorm. Based on his form two seasons ago, the notion of Vorm accepting a back-up role to Hugo Lloris would be odd but after a disappointing season that was also marred by injury and the arrival of Lukasz Fabianski, he was surplus to requirements. Davies will be the presumed starter ahead of Danny Rose who has been rumored to be on the move himself. No word as to whether Gylfi Sigurdsson will be moving in the opposite direction.
