Preston Midfielder Kevin Nicholls has engineered a loan move back to former club Luton Town in the Janurary transfer window. The deal bewteen the two clubs has been agreed in principle pending Luton coming out of administration by the end of January. This was told to me by the player himself.
Everton FC could set to make transfer moves for Anton Ferdinand (the Hammers), Chris Gunter (Cardiff City, Ben Tozer (Swindon Town), and Fernandes (Valencia) because Moyes has not been impressed with the crazy Dane struggling to gain fitness.
Leicester's Ian Holloway will make a January bid to take Zoltan Gera from West Bromwich as Gera's contract is up soon. He will also make a £200,000 offer for Plymouth's Rory Fallon who cannot get in team ahead of Blake and Hayles. See's him as a target player needed.
ARSE VIEW Arsene Wenger is about to swoop for Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb).
He is also about to raid Real Madrid for youngsters Dani Parejo and Pablo Sarabia.
Summer moves are expected for Martin Caceres (villareal), Yohann Mollo (Monaco) and Henri Saivet (Bordeaux).
Allardyce is hoping to secure his job at Newcastle by strengthening the always weak defense. He will go for ex–Bolton centre back Tal Ben Haim who will not get a place at Chelsea. It is thought he will also swoop for Philipe Senderos.
Arsenal are planning to steal another rivals unhappy players by putting in a bid for United's Wes Brown. Like Chelsea with Diarra they will have no choice but to sell him for cash or risk losing him on a free later.

These are rumours that might happen in January:
Portsmouth are interesting in the signing of Mutu from Fiorentina but are unwilling to pay more than £10 million for him. Man United and Chelsea are again on a tug of war for the signing of David Villa because he is unsettled at Valencia. This week there were ruomurs in Milan that Berlusconi contacted again FC Barcelona for 3 major FC Barcelona players Eto'o, Ronaldinho and Zambrotta and is willing to pay near 120 million for the service of these three players. The Stuttgart defender Magnin is being reported as a target of Juve who are interested in Mellberg aswell.
Liverpool, and not Newcastle are ready to sign Diego from Werder Bremen for £11 million. Rafa will be ready to use him in Central midfield or more often as a forward. Liverpool will sell one of their forwards and Momo Sissoko in the Summer. Ryan Babel may play more up front and Diego will also play just behind Torres. Diego could also slot into Central midfield if need be.
Liverpool and Real Madrid have a greed a swap in principal between John Arne Riise + £3 million for Drenthe. The deal will be agreed in January but will not be finalised until the Summer.

Arsenal's recent form has done it. Arsene will break the bank to obtain Modric and Richards, and Benzema is likely as well with sales of Silva, Bendtner, and Senderos being used to deFray costs. The other teams will not be so active. Liverpool is in for Nasri, Man United will only acquire Alan Hutton and Lenny, and Chelsea will be in for Kaka and Carlos Puyol.
