Southampton have rejected a £5m bid for winger Adam Lallana from Premier League new boys Reading.

Reading could yet go back with an improved offer but are also looking at Wolves winger Matt Jarvis. Manager Brian McDermott will be in attendance watching Wolves on the final day and is believed to be readying a £3m offer.

I've also heard Saints have made an official approach for Leicester centre back Matt Mills, and right back Greg Halford.

Believable4 Unbelievable2

Ha what a load of garbage.
Lallana would not even consider Reading. Reading wouldn't be stupid enough to try a bid.
No Saints fan would want Mills back after he left thinking he could be great after just a few games.
Halford isn't Premier League standard.
NEXT RUMOUR PLEASE

Reading manager Brian McDermott has enquired about Wolves winger Matt Jarvis. He will be watching Wolves final game of the season (local press) before tabling an offer.

Wolves are very keen on Reading midfielder Jay Tabb to replace the outgoing Karl Henry. Tabb carries a value of approx £1.2m and could be used as a sweetener in any deal for Jarvis.

Odd one from Stoke today that Gennaro Gatusso may come on some kind of 1 season pay as you play deal.

Martin Olsson and Matt Jarvis of course have been strongly linked as has a loan deal for Lukaku that Stoke are rumoured to have agreed with Chelsea last January.

Stoke will not give Fuller the 3 year deal he wants and further talks with Huth are due next week.

Jones will make way for a well known striker but no name was given.

Lots of fringe players will leave

You mean Gylfi Siggurdson? The one that plays for Hoffenheim? Not Lillestrom? And £1mill? LOL.

Ok, you clearly are in the know.
No he means Bjorn Sigurdarson

Ha that's brilliant, mocking someone's footballing knowledge whilst displaying none what so ever!

Can't see the Bjorn deal coming off, highly rated young striker would be a coupe but 3.5mill is the rumored asking price upfront

Believable2 Unbelievable0

LOL. Similar name but different player. Sigurdason is Iceland's next big thing apparently.

Reading have upped their bid to £2m plus add ons.

Latest Leeds news: Seems to change every day at the moment with the Mighty Whites.

Talks with Joel Ward, as were reported in the Daily Mail on Wednesday and yesterday in the YEP, were concluded. Talks are ongoing with Paul Green. Both are thought to have been positive and could bear fruit.

The real shocker is the rumour that Paddy Kenny has already AGREED a pre-contract. I didn't even know there were any discussions. Warnock kept that one quiet. Don't blame him, there'd be a riot.

This next year could be fergies last year in charge so believe me he will want to win something! he will strengthen in the summer to give him a better chance of bowing out at the top with another European cup under his belt!

I think we will be looking at Dembele from Fulham, definitely make a push for Rodwell and we could maybe go for christian eriksen from ajax. I like gaitan and hazard but i think there gonna cost mega bucks so we will probly pull away from them.

I also think we will try and shake luca modric up a little but i cant see them letting him go especially as harry is staying put!

Iv always liked ben arfa and think that would be a smooth move from fergie if we could get him over the geordies!

man utd forvever!

Recent survey on an Everton site asking 'If you could have any player past or present (and at the peak of their powers) in the current team, who would it be?

Now I could think of about 10 genuinely world class players including Dixie Dean, Neville Southall, Trevor Steven, Kevin Sheedy, Gary Lineker, Alan Ball, Graeme Sharp...

Have a guess who topped the poll?

Duncan Ferguson!

Haha, you couldn't make it up. I'm a Villa fan and Emile Heskey has scored more Premierleague goals than this clueless thug!

Anyone who feels sorry for Portsmouth FC i urge you to have a read of there local paper The News, there is an article in there about how £8,400 of charity money is still to be paid to organisations.
This is the reason to why Pompey should not of been allowed to sign players like Etuhu and pay his wages even if he was on a week to week contract. In the January transfer window they turned down a bid from Ipswich for Joe Ward maybe they should of accepted and pay these poor Charity's there money back, not to mention all the other small Family buisness that suffered.
