All the guff relating to the Inter Milan midfielder, Fredy Guarin, coming to the Premier League appears to have been misplaced.
Linked with, primarily, a move to Stamford Bridge but also interesting Manchester United and Tottenham, it is being reported that Inter Milan have no intentions of selling the 27 year-old.
Continuing on a twenty-something theme, there is speculation doing the rounds in the media today that Crystal Palace, under the leadership of Tony Pulis, are looking to make a cheeky move to take twenty-eight year-old Demba Ba to Selhurst Park, on loan.
What`s the verdict?
Are you disappointed that it appears Guarin won`t be coming and what about Ba, should he be let go?
Your views are, as usual, very much appreciated.
