Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway wants to give Sylvan Ebanks-Blake a Premier League 'lifeline' apparently. Currently at League One side Wolverhampton Wanderers, the striker would probably welcome a move to the top-flight. Although he'll be out injured until October whoever he's playing for.

Recently a free agent, Florent Malouda is set to leave England for a move to Greek side Olympiakos. After being told he had no future with Chelsea, Malouda has failed to find another Premier League side needing his services.

The talk Brazil international moving to Tottenham has led to speculation Scott Parker could be on his way out. QPR and Fulham have reportedly joined Sunderland in showing interest, with Cottagers manager Martin Jol ready to table a £4m pound bid for the 32-year-old.

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams is set to tell the club he wants to leave this summer. Arsenal are rumoured to be his preferred choice, with Everton and Liverpool also interested in the Welshman.
