Geoff Cameron secured his future at Stoke City by signing a new two-year contract extension today.

Despite making just 19 appearances this season due to a series of injuries and setbacks, Cameron has added two years to a contract that was set to expire next summer, keeping him in the Potteries until 2020. In four years since arriving from Houston Dynamo, Cameron has made more than 160 appearances for the Potters, becoming a first-team favorite under manager Mark Hughes.

Daley Blind will face an anxious summer ahead, but insisted that it is desire to remain at the club.

The Dutch international lined up against his old club Ajax in the Europa League final on Wednesday, and rumors have swirled that Ajax are looking to bring him back to the club with just one year left on his current contract. But after making 23 appearances for United under Jose Mourinho, Blind hopes he has done enough to stay: "I don’t really know anything yet about my future. I haven’t really thought about it either. But which player wouldn’t want to stay at Manchester United? That’s the only thing I can say about it."

Crystal Palace concluded a major piece of business by signing winger Wilfried Zaha to a contract extension.

Signing Zaha to a new deal was one of the club's highest priorities, which now includes finding a new manager following Sam Allardyce's abrupt resignation. But at least Steve Parish and company know that the 24-year-old is committed for the next five years through the 2022 season amid rumors he could leave for Spurs this summer. Said Zaha about the new deal: "Palace is in my heart and I don't think the story is over. I spoke with Steve and I think I still have more to give this Club. The supporters have been amazing and I want us to do more than just stay in the League next year. I would like to thank the Chairman for being a big part of my journey and his fellow owners for backing me and rewarding my progression. Let's do this!"

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.

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.

Southampton have released left-winger Lloyd Isgrove after his contract with the club expired.

The Welshman has endured a frustrating season at Southampton, having been limited to just one appearance in each domestic cup competition this season. Isgrove was sent on a number of loans while a Saints player, most recently starring for Barnsley in League One in 2015/16.

Southampton have released centre-back Martin Caceres after his short term deal with the club expired.

The former Juventus man was signed in February on a free transfer when Claude Puel was scrambling to replace Jose Fonte and the injured Virgil Van Dijk in the central role. The Uruguayan took a while to reach match fitness after joining the club, so much so that Maya Yoshida and rookie Jack Stephens had time to form a surprisingly formidable partnership in the heart of defence. In the end, Caceres was kept out of the side completely by the pair and made just one token appearance in the Premier League against Middlesbrough in Gameweek 37.

Southampton have released right-back Cuco Martina from the club after his contract expired.

Martina has not featured for the first team in the Premier League since late 2016, when he lost his rotation spot to Cedric Soares permanently. He was not even on the bench as the season drew to a close when Jeremy Pied was favoured in Claude Puel's rotations. The Curacao international is now in talks with Everton, who can sign him for free. They are in the market for a right-back to cover for Seamus Coleman who is unlikely to be fit before the new year. Toffees manager Ronald Koeman is keen to link up with the full-back, who he worked with at FC Twente in the Eredivisie. Mason Holgate has impressed in the role since Coleman suffered his injury, but Koeman is apparently keen to add the 27 year old's experience to his options.

Cuco Martina and Martin Caceres are the notable names in the four man list of players released by Southampton.

Right-back Cuco Martina has been surplus to requirements this terms as Cedric has held down the starting berth with consistent performances since the new year. Jeremy Pied, who spent most the season on the sidelines injured, took over the berth in some of the last Premier League games while Puel rotated. Martina was not even named in the squad. Lloyd Isgrove and Harley Willard have also left the club.

Bournemouth defender Steve Cook has signed a new contract with the club which will tie him down until 2021.

The centre-back has been at the club since 2011, when he arrived from Brighton on what was originally a loan agreement which was made permanent. Cook was a vital part of Eddie Howe's starting XI this season, playing every minute of the 38 game Premier League season. He has racked up 231 appearances for the club since his arrival, contributing 15 goals in the process. Commenting on the deal, Cook said: "It has always been my plan to stay here as long as possible, so to be given the chance to do that is really pleasing... Myself and AFC Bournemouth have been the perfect match." His manager praised the defender, explaining that the contract was a deserved reward after a solid season. He also added that "[Cook] is a major part of [the club's] plans going forward."

Apparently there is only one for one Jesus at Manchester City as the club has announced that Jesus Navas will not be resigned after his contract ran out this summer.

The Spanish international has never quite lived up to the high expectations that accompanied his arrival at the Etihad. Never a prolific goalscorer, his assist and chance creation record in Spain for Sevilla was far superior to what he was able to achieve in the Premier League. Across multiple managers, Navas' pace and effort were never in doubt but his end product, be that a shot or a cross, never came around on a consistent basis. He leaves City having scored 4 goals in 118 appearances. It's hard to imagine that there will be many takers in the Premier League even on a free.

Despite starting down the stretch for the 3rd place finishers, Willy Caballero will not be returning to the Etihad next season after his contract expires over the summer.

The club is clearly looking to clear salary and older players from the squad as they continue to remake the team to suit Pep Guardiola's preferred style of play. With Joe Hart still under club control, Claudio Bravo signing a significant deal last summer, and Pep seeming discontent with all of his goalkeepers, the writing was on the wall as Caballero's contract expired. There have been few, if any, rumors about whether he is likely to land in the Premier League or elsewhere for next season.

Bacary Sagna will be joining Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas, and Willy Caballero as out of contract players not returning to the Etihad next season.

Following his former Arsenal teammate Gael Clichy from the Emirates to the Etihad three seasons later, Bacary Sagna wasn't as fortunate as his fellow former Gunner. Sagna appeared 53 times for City but he joined following their most recent Premier League title. Unlike Clichy who won the league twice at City, Sagna's quest to add a title after Arsenal frustration went unfulfilled. He is now a free agent able to sign with any club although the market for 34-year-old outside backs is probably not a massive one, at least not if Sagna is looking for a starting role.

Manchester City will be busy in the transfer market this summer following a series of cuts in defense.

The club announced on Thursday that Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy would join Pablo Zabaleta, Jesus Navas and Willy Caballero as expiring contracts who will not be re-signed. Clichy announced his departure earlier in the week, while Sagna's exit leaves the club with only four senior defenders. Said Sagna: "It has been a privilege to play for this football club. I have enjoyed every moment of my City career and will look back on my time at City fondly. I would like to thank the staff, players and fans for making my three years so memorable."

Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero was among the latest casualties as the club cleans house this summer.

The Spaniard originally entered the season looking like the No. 3 keeper, but Joe Hart went on loan to Torino while Claudio Bravo disappointed early on, leading to Caballero earning the starting role. Despite making 27 appearances this season, the club decided it would not offer the 35-year-old a new deal with his contract set to expire this summer. "It’s been a privilege to play for Manchester City," Caballero said. "From the first day I arrived, everyone at the Club has made me feel welcome and I will always be grateful to them. To win the League Cup in such dramatic circumstances was special and it’s a day I will never forget."
