When Silly Season is in full effect, your fate can change form one hour to the next.

Just yesterday, rumors were flying that young Mohamed Salah could be loaned out to Harry Redknapp and ... Ewww-PR ... while not long ago it seemed that Roberto Mancini and Internazionale were sniffing around as well.  Today, it would appear that he's going nowhere.  That's according to the Sunderland Echo -- apparently Sunderland were contemplating a Salah loan as well? -- and things that the Sunderland Echo understand.

...Mohamed Salah is expected to remain at Chelsea this month, despite being heavily linked with a loan move to Sunderland.

[...]

...sources close to the player have indicated that, despite interest from the Premier League, along with Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan, Salah is likely to still be at Stamford Bridge when the window shuts, with Chelsea fighting on four fronts for silverware.

Salah staying would also be in line with all the indications and hints that have been dropped so far by the Chelsea hierarchy, namely that we should be expecting a quiet transfer window with very little first-team affecting activity.
