Conte plans to recall Juan Cuadrado from his loan spell at Juventus, a player he strongly admires and tried to sign while he was at the helm at Juventus two years ago and Cuadrado return will ultimately end any chance Victor Moses has at returning back to the club from his loan spell at West Ham.

West Ham refuse to take up the option of buying the 24 year old permanently in the summer and despite signing a new five year deal before his latest loan move the player who has spent the last three seasons on loan is set to be released by Conte in the summer.

Omeruo presently on loan at Turkish side Kasimpasa is yet to kick a ball in anger for the blues since joining them in 2013 and despite his current fine form for his latest loan side the emergence of Matt Miazga and the possible signing of another centre back means he will be released in the summer.
