Having missed out on Victor Wanyama, Cardiff City have turned their attention to another high profile central midfielder in Toulouse man Capoue.

Etienne Capoue has been linked to some high profile teams over the last couple of seasons but his star (and rumored price) have fallen since he was linked with Arsenal and Spurs for over £20 million last summer. Rumors about his attitude and off-field habit have caused his value to fall in the last 12 months. If his value were still at it's peak Cardiff City would have no chance to get him as a significant step up from Don Cowie and the rest of their central midfield crew so this could be a solid risk. If things fall into place maturity-wise (it has been known to happen to 25 year olds) he'd be a great asset for Cardiff.

While there weren't many details, Louis Van Gaal said that there was a "light at the end of the tunnel" for long term absentees Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo.

As soon as it looks like Antonio Valencia might be back for the Red Devils, Matteo Darmian has been playing some of his best football of the year. He was one of United's best players last weekend against Chelsea. The return of Valencia will, at a minimum, create much-needed depth. Valencia's return to the starting line-up, which looked like a certainty as recently as a few weeks ago, is looking less likely with every successive strong outing from Darmian.

Phil Jones suffered a setback in his recovery from an ankle injury during Manchester United's 7-0 U21 league victory of Norwich on Monday.

The Red Devils remain perilously thin at the back and were counting on the return of Phil Jones to boost depth even if he wasn't likely to dislodge either Chris Smalling or Daley Blind in the starting eleven. Jones, who hasn't played much at all this season and only once in 2016, shouldn't be out too much longer according to Louis Van Gaal's assessment but the trend for Jones is certainly a worrying one with only 10 Premier League matches to his credit this season and only six starts.

Jack Colback has been training all week according to Steve McClaren and is available for selection when Newcastle United travel this weekend to take on Chelsea.

McClaren announced that Emmanuel Riviere is available as well, but the French striker is far behind the pecking order at Newcastle with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Seydou Doumbia and Ayoze Perez all ahead of him, though Perez can play elsewhere. The boost comes from Colback's return. While normally deployed in central defensive midfield, he may line up at left back, where he has experience. Rolando Aarons was the latest emergency fill-in at the position and to be fair the Magpies kept a clean sheet in the process. But that was West Brom without a true striker and this is Chelsea up next, so expect Colback to find himself in the back four this weekend.

Max Gradel has returned to the club and is beginning the early stages of training as he looks to regain his fitness after a lengthy layoff following knee surgery.

Gradel was the big summer signing for the Cherries in their promotional season and was highly influential straight away, notching three assists in the first four matches of the season. It was in the fourth match that his knee was damaged though and has been sidelined ever since. Bournemouth have done well to stay above the relegation zone after losing Gradel and Callum Wilson so early in the season and now with Benik Afobe leading the line, having Gradel back could really improve the attack enough to stave off the drop. It will be a while before we see him starting again, but once he has match fitness, it is likely that he will jump ahead of Junior Stanislas and Marc Pugh in the pecking order.

Jurgen Klopp revealed that Dejan Lovren will be left out of action this weekend when Liverpool travel to play Aston Villa.

Earlier in the week, Lovren's chances of being fit against Aston Villa were looking favorable, as Klopp had indicated that the center back was taken out of last weekend's match against Sunderland as a precaution. Unfortunately, the manager indicated that Lovren "has a strange feeling in his muscle" but hopes to have the Croatian available for the Reds next game. It looks like it will be a Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure partnership at center back once again on Sunday.

Joe Allen will be "out for a while" according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, as the midfielder has to recover from a hamstring injury picked up last weekend.

Allen, along with Dejan Lovren, were removed early during the eventual draw with Sunderland in Week 25. The prognosis for both looked as though the injuries were minor and both would be available in a week's time. However, Lovren has been ruled out for at least the weekend clash with Aston Villa while it sounds as though Allen will be sidelined for even longer. The Reds will likely line up with Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and James Milner playing between the back four and the attacking three.

Manchester City will finally see the return of its captain after Vincent Kompany was cleared to make his first appearance of 2016 after a persistent calf injury.

Kompany has only made one appearance since the end of November, which lasted only nine minutes before suffering a setback in his recovery from injury. But with Kompany's return comes another injury on the back-line as Bacary Sagna has been ruled out due to a knee injury, said Manuel Pellegrini: "Vincent has worked for three weeks with no problems. He played 45 minutes in a friendly game against the under-21s and I think he’s ready to play. Bacary had last week a problem in his knee - some liquid in his knee. He needs an injection and one week at least to return to work." It may not be time just yet to add Kompany back to the lineup. Even if he starts, City will be going up against a streaking Spurs attack, meaning it might be best to wait until Week 27 following Champions League and FA Cup action.

Manchester City have avoided an injury crisis in midfield for at least this weekend after David Silva was passed fit to face Spurs this weekend in a matchup of No. 2 vs. No. 3 at the Etihad.

Silva was in danger of missing the weekend and more after sustaining a knock to his ankle in the 3-1 loss to Leicester City last week, but will provide City fans with some relief. However, Fabian Delph has been ruled out for the next six to seven weeks after picking up an Achilles injury this week, joining Kevin De Bruyne and Jesus Navas as recent injury casualties in midfield. It's a bit risky to go with Silva this week in your fantasy team as his production rate has suffered mightily this season due to a series of knocks. For his price, he's too inconsistent to start with better attacking options around.

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink confirmed Diego Costa suffered a broken nose in training on Thursday and is currently being assessed ahead of the weekend.

Chelsea play Newcastle on Saturday and Costa is facing a race against the clock to be ready as the club's lone healthy forward. However, the club confirmed the Spanish international is having a protective mask fitted and will train separately today before being considered for the matchday squad. As a fantasy manager, the risk to play Costa may be worth it considering Newcastle's spotty defensive record and the club's lack of forwards (although Eden Hazard can play as a false No. 9).

Sunderland have terminated the contract of Adam Johnson after he plead guilty to two charges related to sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.

Johnson has been at the center of a controversy surrounding this incident for some time. The club gave him ample time to exonerate himself but with news that he had plead guilty, they have moved to terminate his contract with immediate effect. Johnson scored the first goal in the Black Cats' late comeback against Liverpool on Saturday but that will apparently be his last contribution at the club.

Despite on-field frustrations, Bojan Krkic has signed a contract extension at Stoke City that will take him through the 2020 season.

Despite his name having been around at big clubs seemingly forever, Krkic is still only 25-years-old. From that point of view, the contract extension certainly makes sense for Stoke City. What is less clear is why they are doing it now given that Mark Hughes has left Bojan out of his starting line-up twice in Stoke City's past three Premier League matches. With the two parties married for the foreseeable future, we have to assume Bojan will get back to starting soon.
