Crystal Palace sign Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea
Crystal Palace have struck a deadline-day coup as the Eagles snapped up Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The striker had been looking for a way out of his failed loan at Valencia, with Chelsea even talking to rivals Tottenham over a potential deal.

Fulham's Sabaly move falls through

"It's a joke!" - Ex-Gunners star slams loans for ‘ninth richest club’

“It really is a joke and has been ever since David Dein left the building.
“I'm confused because we all need defenders and they are hard to get. Liverpool spent £60m to £70m getting one of the best you can get, and we can't seem to identify one.”
“We're the ninth richest club and we can only get loan deals. I don't care if the manager likes this player or not, please Arsenal, get some defenders in!”

Waddle confident Kane won't leave Spurs this summer
Harry Kane “won’t leave Tottenham this summer”, says Chris Waddle, with ongoing talk of interest from Real Madrid set to be ignored for at least one more transfer window.

Waddle stated: “Harry Kane won't leave Tottenham this summer, but his head will eventually turn towards winning trophies.
“Real Madrid can practically guarantee that, as well as a very generous pay rise. He seems very settled at Tottenham and he's enjoying his football, but when he looks back at his career he will want his goals to have secured medals."

"The game against Burnley [a 2-2 draw], despite coming back into it, proved that the team aren’t there yet. I’m not saying he’s not done well, he’s been fantastic, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready for the job yet.
“You’ve got to be careful. Whoever takes the job on a permanent basis must be the right man."
