Crystal Palace, Fulham and West Ham are all waiting to find out whether new Manchester United manager David Moyes is ready to send Wilfried Zaha out on loan.

The Daily Mirror claim all three clubs have submitted bids to offer the 20-year-old wonderkid regular first-team football next season, but Moyes may want to keep the young winger after Nani, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia's less than stellar performances last season. If Zaha did become available it would make sense for him to spend another season back at Palace where he's familiar with the players, manager and adored by the fans.

On the traditional first day of the summer window in the Premier League, the deal that will see Nathaniel Clyne depart Southampton for Liverpool is officially done.

Liverpool get their man for a reported £10m with an additional £2.5m in incentives that could be paid to the Saints based on the right back's performance. With Glen Johnson having moved on after his contract expired, the starting gig has virtually no competition for the new signing, and fantasy managers should count on seeing his name on Brendan Rodgers' first XI of the season. It shouldn't take long for Clyne to adapt to his new surroundings either - he has former teammates Adam Lallana, Ricky Lambert and Dejan Lovren to welcome him in.

Bournemouth added some veteran leadership to their newly promoted side by signing center back Sylvain Distin.

A Toffee since 2009, Distin began seeing his playing time fade over the past couple of seasons. He hasn't maintained the best fitness record in the that time while younger talent John Stones began to carve out his role as the center back of the future. At 37 years old, it would be difficult to imagine Distin being looked at as an every-game starter. He will likely be moved in and out of Eddie Howe's XI and never play two straight matches in short succession, not to much unlike Rio Ferdinand's role for QPR last season. Where he will make the most impact is likely on the training ground and in the locker room. He shouldn't be seen as anything more than a bench-filler for fantasy purposes heading into next season.

Crystal Palace are in talks with PSG over the proposed £10 million transfer of French International Johan Cabaye…

Talk of a move for the French International has rumbled on for a while, but not it seems negotiations have reached a formal stage. Cabaye joined PSG from Newcastle – then managed by Palace boss Alan Pardew, of course - for £19 million in January 2014. But has struggled to make an impact and started just 13 matches last season. Aged 29 and with the Euros at the end of the coming season, Cabaye will be keen to secure regular first-team action. Palace expect competition though - London rivals Tottenham and West Ham have already declared an interest, plus Southampton are monitoring the situation having resigned themselves to losing Morgan Schneiderlin to Manchester United. It’s been a frustrating summer so far of Pardew and Palace, with interest in Loic Remy, Charlie Austin and Matt Phillips so far fruitless.

Paul Pogba has put his Man City move on ice until the outcome of the Barcelona presidential election…

The Paul Pogba transfer saga looks like rumbling on for at least another few weeks, with Man City being asked to sit tight until the results of Barcelona’s presidential elections on July 18th. The promise of which marquee signing will follow is the chief – perhaps, only – campaigning tool for potential Barca presidents. With both Joan Laporta and Josep Maria Bartomeu promising to sign Pogba. This can’t be good news for City. We know the eye-watering £70 million price tag isn’t a problem, but obviously playing second fiddle to Barca as Pogba’s preferred option might be. Another player on City’s wish list, Kevin De Bruyne has also had a ‘hands off’ notice slapped on him by his club Wolfsburg. With £145 million burning a hole in their collective pocket we can expect a third bid for Raheem Sterling this week.

Jose Mourinho has moved quickly to replace Petr Cech with a reported bid for Stoke City number one Asmir Begovic which the Potters have rejected.

The 28-year-old Begovic faces an interesting dilemma should Stoke City and Chelsea agree on transfer terms. Does he essentially give up the next three or four years of his career, prime years, for more money and some titles that he barely participates in? It seems like a cushy gig unless you're a competitor and are driven by competition. Begovic would be a strong get for the Blues if it works out but Robert Green seems to make more sense as far as being a player who can offer a great deal but would be willing to sacrifice playing time for money/titles given where he is in his career.

The agent of Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has vehemently denied that his client held talks with Roma to discuss a potential move to Serie A.

The rumour – fuelled by the Italian press – claimed Dzeko would be used in a deal involving fellow countryman Miralem Pjanic with the midfielder moving to the Etihad. However despite claims that Dzeko would go "running" to the Giallorossi Irfan Redzepagic [his agent] dismissed any talk as nonsense revealing Dzeko has had no contact with the club and remains happy in Manchester. Following the arrival of Wilfried Bony in January competition for game time is fierce with Sergio Aguero always likely to start if fit. Dzeko was restricted to just 11 BPL starts last season and played less than a thousand minutes – his lowest return for a full season since joining back in January, 2011.

Sammy Ameobi looks set to extend his stay at Newcastle before heading out on a season long loan deal with Championship side Cardiff City believed to be interested in signing the winger.

Ameobi enjoyed his best return in a United shirt last season but his 15 starts were maybe more indicative of the club’s plight – and lack of squad depth - rather than players ability. Ameobi has spent a number of years on Tyneside and very much like his brother – Shola – promised so much but ultimately failed to deliver. A loan spell to local rivals Middlesbrough back in 2013 was intended to kick start his career gaining first team experience but the player was once again confined to the reserves on his return. With only 21 BPL starts spread across 5 season’s time is running out for Ameobi and dropping down a level to guarantee himself some game time may not be such a bad move for the former England under-21.

Nathaniel Clyne has been pictured leaving a Merseyside hospital as his move to Liverpool is close to being completed in a deal said to be worth around $16 million with a further $4 million in add-ons.

Clyne will become the sixth signing of the window joining Milner, Bogdan, Firmino, Gomez and Ings as Brendan Rodgers revamps his squad in an attempt to challenge for domestic honours. Clyne has been pivotal during his time at St Marys’ and started all but 3 BPL games last season but having entered the final year of his contract Southampton could not risk losing their England international for nothing after the player refused a new and improved $70k per week offer. His arrival is likely to mean Emre Can is moved centrally possibly in a holding midfield role although the versatile German under-21 is capable of playing in a number of positions.

Watford have confirmed that Lloyd Doyley will remain at the club until September as the club’s longest serving defender recovers from neck surgery.

Doyley went under the knife back in May to correct a minor neck problem and will remain with the BPL new boys throughout the pre-season despite being out of contract. Doyley has spent over 14 years at the club and was until last season considered a first team regular. However the Jamaican international struggled to nail down his place during the promotion winning campaign and may now be surplus to requirements. Watford have begun already their transition into the top flight by welcoming winger Diego Perotti for a club-record $11 million fee from Genoa while Austria defender Sebastian Prodl also arrives from Werder Bremen.

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea complete with the obligatory Tweeted photo of the player in an Arsenal shirt.

It isn't often that Arsene Wenger gets one over on Jose Mourinho but it appears that he has today as the North London club announce the signing of one of Mourinho's stalwarts in Petr Cech. While Cech wouldn't have played much at Stamford Bridge, he should be an improvement over David Ospina/Wojceich Szczesny and provide a significant talent boost to Arsenal over where they left off last season. Given that Arsenal were excellent over the second half of last season, things are certainly going their way heading into the start of the 2015-16 season.

Guangzhou Evergrande have announced the signing of Paulinho from Spurs for £9.9m.

Spurs have been quiet so far this summer but perhaps this is the beginning of a series of moves to clear space for some new signings. Paulinho had some solid moments for Spurs but overall, wasn't good enough to help them contend for a Champions League spot. With Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason coming up through the youth ranks to start regularly last season, Paulinho was an expensive and redundant spare part. His sale is probably the right outcome for all sides.
