Hello people,I have it on good advice from a reliable source who has been right about most Liverpool transfers in the past,that Liverpool are trying to sort out a deal to get Javier Mascherano's contract at West Ham terminated.Apparently Rafa sees him as cover for Momo (yeah,I know,I don't understand that man either,but hey).He also wants to sign Villa in a deal involving Garcia and cash,but probably won't get him because Villa wants to fulfill his ambitions at Valencia.Others he wants but won't get are Torres and Micah Richards.In non-Liverpool-related business,Stokes to Celtic for £1 million is outrageous.If Arsenal rated that badly they'd have let him go before instead of sending him out on loan to gain experience.Arsene Wenger is set to take Jesus Navas from Sevilla over the summer. However, the transfer is going to have a very sophisticated structure. Wenger doesn not want to have another Reyes - a significan't talent who, however, fails to settle in England. Navas has well-documented home-sickness issues. Because of his obvious talent, though, Wenger will take a chance. The transfer will be permanent, though Arsenal will be able to sell the player back to Seville after one year for a full refund of around 15 million Euros. The reason he will not simply go to Arsenal on loan is that Wenger does not want him to have an easy way out, so that Navas will take it upon himself to adapt. There may also be a clause giving Arsenal the option to exchange Navas for Puerta - the Kicker journalistGlasgow Rangers News
Firstly Steven Pressley will not be signing for Rangers. He would only be a short term deal. his destination will be Tannadice to team up with Levein. Ivica Olic will only sign if he decides to leave CSKA Moscow in January. If he stays PLG will attempt to sign him up on a bosman. PLG sees him as a rplacement for Prso and Prso is being used to recruit him. There will be some comings and goings but not wholesale changes. A centre half will sign along with Scott brown. PLG has sounded out Matthew upson but may not be able to compete with Premiership wages if some of the big boys are interested.Latest from Old Trafford
Seol Ki Hyeon and Kevin Doyle to United in Jan.Sources see them as perfect additions to balance the squad with either Barton, Nolan or Hargreaves to command the midfield and allow Carrick to go forward.Doyle is seen as the new Lineker and United's Korean connection will increases with Park Ju Yung coming for a trial in Jan.I have heard, on good authority, that the Craig Gordon from Hearts to Aresenal move is definatley on & is almost complete. I believe it will be done & dusted in January with Gordon allowed to stay at Tynecastle until the summer on loan, when he will go to Aresenal as No:1. I have also heard, from a close freind of Derek riorden, that Sunderland & Middlesboro have contacted him with a poss loan move in January with the option of making it perminent in the summer.Arsene Wenger has already said he will not be signing anybody in January. Of course he said that last year too and signed Adebeyor, Diaby, and Walcott in the January window.
Now that Clichy has had a decent run out and proved to be inadequate, I think you will see a left back as the only signing in January. I know the target is Eric Abidal but his team his still involved in the champs league so he probably won't move. But he will move to Arsenal in the summer along with Ribery. So the rumour is that Arsenal are finally going to get Curtis Davies fora decent price and he's going to play left back, which is where he belongs anyway.
Anthony Stokes will stay with Falkirk for the rest of the season and if he can't win a spot in the first team next year will go to Celtic. He is more Charlie Nicholas than Charlie George.Not a rumour FACT. The David Beckham to Celtic is true. The rumour is based upon a converstion that took place between DB's reps and Celtic along the lines of " If david was available would you be interested. ." . The reason for beckham's approach was two fold. He is looking for a club where he could win things and one that has a large worldwide audience. He was knocked out at the sheer size of the CEltic fanbase and calculated that his image rights alone , alongside the Celtic shirt, would be very lucrative. hence his approach to Celtic, although that is not the only team that he has approached the fact is Beckham has approached Celtic. don't believe me listen to the inane utterances of Murray's lackeys in the Scottish football press. .Even they are admitting itLFC jan. signings:- nelson - benfica
baines - wigan
v.d.vaart - hamburg
a.ferdinand - whamBECKHAM TO CELTIC!
Why are sad Rangers Fans Laughing at this??
Its not as if a Celtic fan came out with it from no-where!
It came out in Spain about 6 weeks ago in the Newspaper - Marca from Madrid the same newspaper who broke the story of Beckham to Real aswell as most of Real Madrids transfer activity and it is often said they don't get much wrong. .
Then it came out in Scotland AND England the next day and Jounalists where asking Strachan and Lawwell about it.
I personally don't think he'll come
I think we'll sign:
and only them
I am led to believe Thomson and Brown are done deals and Brown will join in January while Thomson will join in the summer
Voronin will join in January for £750k and his cousin Tymoschyuk will join in the summer for £2.3m
Stokes will join in January for £1m as Strachan has already done the deal with Liam Brady and Kilgallon will also join in January for £1.5m
Kadlec will join in the summer for £1mLudovic giuly to chelsea for £12.5 million.Ok like everyone else lets allhave a laugh at the rumour about beckam and selik HA HA HA anyway Scot brown will sign for rangers FACT and Thompson will go to selik his old agent confirmed this, the gers will also sign anderson or pressley not both as svenson will come good, we will also sign a left winger and one more striker but it won't be olic possibly alan sith on loan or marel mintal also cubilier and obinha as summer signings, viv le revolution.It looks like it could be a busy January for Neil 'Colin' Warnock. Coming in will be Michael Mifsud from Lillestrom on a free transfer, Greg Halford for 1.5m, Matt Kilgallon for 500k + Ifill and Unsworth and one of Scott Brown, Dean Whitehead, Ben Watson and Tom Soares. Egyptian trialists Ibrahim Said, Amr Zaki and Ahmed Fathi could be other options. Ade Akinbiyi will migrate to Cardiff for 500k, Alan Wright will be shipped out to anyone who is desperate, Geoff Horsfield will join a championship side for about 500k and Chris Lucketti will sign for Burnley or Preston for 100k.

100% TrueDhorossu To Bolton Free In January, To join up with french pal nicholas anelka.
Watch out for lots more french playrs coming to the reebok to play with legend , ANELKATo the guy who said that the arseanl team next year will include gallas at left and centre back, im guessin you meant clichy at left back as hes a hot prospect. BUT, there is no way the midfield will be hleb, fabregas, rosicky and d calvalho. Who would defend? Fabregas would be an absolute waste of time if he didnt have someone to watch his back when he goes on his passing missions up the field. Gilberto is the automatic choice at the minute because hes big and bossy. However gilberto is no spring chicken and will need replacong in the next three year or so. Flamini is just not big enough and diaby is a bit 'cyganish' and prone to making costly mistakes. Gago would be the obvious choice but his club want £20m + for him and there is no way wenger will pay that. Don't be suprised to see yaya toure in there or maybe some other french man-mountain like rio mavuba, or possily toulalan from lyon as a 'mop up player'

Sneijder to AC MilanMan Utd News. My nephew goes to school with Silvestre's little girl. Apparently he's leaving in Jan. He's going back to France, not sure where to.I've been in hospital for the past three days with a hernia. However, one of the patients in my ward told me some of the rumours he's heard about surrounding the Premiership. Arsenal are very interested in completing a permanent move for Julio Baptista before christmas, with Jose Antonio Reyes desperate to secure a long term move back to his homeland. Blackburn Rovers midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen has apparently sounded out the possibility of a move to Valencia, who are looking for reinforcements following serious injuries to key players such as Edu and Ruben Baraja. Also, Manchester United will loan out Giuseppe Rossi to Parma in January as he's not getting enough experience at Newcastle. In terms of what I've heard, Micah Richards will join Arsenal next summer in a deal worth £9m plus Justin Hoyte, and also Jeremie Aliadiere will join French club PSG on a three and a half year contract in January after falling behind Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie, Emmanuel Adebayor, Theo Walcott and Julio Baptista in the Arsenal pecking order, as well as Nicklas Bendtner, Anthony Stokes and Arturo Lupoli who are set to return from loan spells next May.There are loads of rumours goin round surrondin arsenal these are the most likely ones however
darren bent to arsenal for 10 million in summer jan transfers = gordan (hearts) danni carvalho (cska) reo coker (westham) and reyes out for robinhoTimo Hildebrand will sign for Arsenal in the summer for a free transfer. Lehmann will leave Arsenal and join Hamburg. The choice of goal keepers at Arsenal next season will be: Hildebrand (no1) Almunia (no2) Poom (no3).I Have it first hand that Jan transfer window will see Viduka on his way back to scotland to play for Celtic with Balde going the other way to Boro at the end of the season due to current injuries Strachan won't let him leave now.Also watch out for Sammy Hyypia arriving at Parkhead in the summer.Both facts.
