Where will Mamadou Sakho go? He has turned down moves to Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion, but Liverpool are determined to see him leave on loan. Sunderland could be a destination, but a move to Turkey doesn't seem likely after news that the 26-year-old turned down a move to Besiktas.

The reliable Paul Joyce of the Daily Express has confirmed that the French defender has rejected a move to the Turkish club. It seems that clubs are interested in Sakho's services, but it's unlikely that a club of a similar stature will offer Sakho a chance for regular minutes.

Sakho is reported to be available on loan, but it's unclear as to whether any interest was for a permanent or temporary deal. It seems inevitable that the cult favourite will depart before the end of the day, but which club will make an offer that's satisfactory for both player and club on deadline day?
