The Spaniard spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest, and Hughton admits it is best for the 22-year-old to play first-team football more regularly at this stage in his career.

Ayala has been linked with a loan switch to Middlesbrough, with a view to a permanent move, but Hughton has refused to comment on the reports.

Speaking to The Pink'un, Hughton said: "We are making assessments of the whole squad.

"We have brought in eight players now but we have had more go the other way so we have to get the balances right.

"Dani is someone who went out on loan last season but came back and I have to say looked very good in pre-season training and he has been involved from day one this summer.

"That is one we are assessing, but it is important for him to get games at his age."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
