Lets clear one thing up Chelsea won't sign alfonso Alves as he's signing for Barcelona for £25 million nothing like 8 million
Djemba - djemba to come back to the midlands after a succesfull loan spell at Burnley but to drop down a division to help West Brom in a promotion push for next season.
Enckelman to sign 4 the baggies after a dreadfull 2 seasons at Blackburn.
Bramble to join from Newcastle as new manager sam allaydice as new ideas with his first priority 1 or even 2 central defenders.
De La Cruz could head back to the midlands as his slighly more succesfull spell in English football with Reading hasn't gone all to plan but hopes for a change of fortunesat West Brom
Hearts Julien Brellier will sign for city rivals Hibs within a week of the SPL Season finishing.
Preston North End
PNE are apparently set to sign out of contract striker carl haughley from Carlisle. Rumour has it that he became so under the influence at a presentation even ing that he revealed he would be re-United with ex- Carlisle manager Paul Simpson (Simmo) .
Bristol City Rumours -
Steve Brooker is expected to make his long awaited move to Norwich for £500k.
Jamie McCombe is interesting Sheffield United at £2m
Gary Johnson wants to sign Leon Constantine for £500k and is looking at Michael Ricketts on a free as well as former Doncaster Rovers Sean Thornton.
Manchester United will sign 4 players not the 3 that's been quoted in the press 2 strikers 1 winger and 1 midfielder the winger is Nani 12m Giggs replacement the midfielder will be Hargreaves 17m if Bayern want more United will simply not pay it its Bayerns last chance accept the fee or no deal which is what they have been told if that deal is not done then expect the glazers to raise 44m to release Kaka but expect more fringe players to be sold to raise funds for that deal the 2 strikers are Tevez 12m and bent 9m no defenders will be bought United already have 11 - outs are Silvestre 4m Saha 8m solskaer free Richardson 5m pique 3m Fletcher 5m and possibly Heinze 8m as he is not happy playing 2nd to Evra but Saf feels he is not the same player since his injury and that O'Shea can cover for Evra . 50m has been earmarked by the glazers for transfers but they have said if the chance comes along for a special player ie Kaka then extra funds will be available for that player its also a pr stunt by the glazers to justify the ticket price hike .
I work at the Emirates.
I don't speak to Mr Wenger much but, people close to him and the board are saying that we are looking for players in only three positions.
1. Goal Keeper, Arsenal are about to sign a polish keeper but they have their eyes on Craig Gordon to replace the ageing Lehmann.
2. Ryan Babel has been spoken about to fill the right wing to give the squad some depth and dimensions.
3. Wenger aparently wants to talk Reyes into another try at the Emirates and have option for the left wing, with a natural left footer.
All these talk of Eto'o, Owen and Bent are pure speculation however, Wenger like most Premiership Managers liked Tevez's passion for football, if it is possible to buy the whole right for Tevez; Wenger will be willing to spend around £17-£19m on him.
Apart from that Arsenal are focusing on the season ahead, with key players returning.
p. s. sorry to be a whistle blower, but all these speculation do get silly.
Whoever said that Alex song was Charltons player doesn't know his facts well. Also Andy reid will not leave as he has been injured for most of the season therefore he owes it to the club to stay at least one season. And there is talk of Carson remaining at the club for another seasons long loan.
finally Freddy Eastwood is a player that Alan pardew said he would make a bid for even if Charlton did get relegated. so look out for Eastwood at the Valley next season.
come on u addicks bounce back at the first attempt!
Arsenal will look to sign keeper Igor Akineev and right midfielder Dani Alves in the summer. Wenger is also interested in Franck Ribery, but his transfer to Arsenal looks in doubt as Chelsea and Real Madrid will probably out bid them.
Villa 2 sign Dudek (free) Kewell and Cisse (9.5m)
Blackburn 2 get Bellamy back and also koumas if wba don't go up
Fulham 2 gt sven goran ericsson
I'm a Newcastle fan and unfortunatly, Sam Allardyce has just bought a house in the north-east whilst on holiday. Shame, I wanted Erikkson!
If or when Big Sam takes the very hot seat at Newcastle he will look to bring in two free signings which will of course go down well with Mr Shepherd. Distin and Tal Ben Haim will be the start of a new look Toon back four with the addition of Wayne Bridge to join Taylor at the back. Taylor and Ben Haim are ample cover for RB and Distin LB too. With the possiblity of Luke Young signing for under 4 mil. A complete defensive overfaul for under 10mil.
Next he will look at someone stupid enough to pay 5 mil+ app. fee for Dyer. Enter Villa though Jenas will try and bend Jol's arm no doubt. This not only releases the fee but also 80grand a week wages (+ hospital bills) . Parker may stay as Sam is a fan though he will soon find out that he is no Nolan and cash in on him too. Nicky Butt will stay tho.
Sam knows that Bolton have given the instruction to sell Anelka for 8 mil so he him in to the set up as either the left sided or central CF for his front three though he does love the old fashioned CF in the middle. Would he rape his old club again maybe, going back for Davis though Freedy does love Dean Ashton.
Benfica will sign Mark Viduka in the summer
Peter Grant is going to be busy in the summer signing up to 10 players! Most will be on a free and loans but now he has had a boost from his new board members he can splash the cash. He will sign-
On the ball city! Come on Norwich!
Here are a few rumours I have heard about Steve Bruce and Birmingham Citys Transfers for next year.
- Zat Knight Fulham
- Fabrice Muamba Arsenal
- Nicklas Bendtner Arsenal
- Liam Ridgewell Aston Villa
- Joe Anyon Port Vale
- Titus Bramble Newcastle
- Andy Cole Portsmouth
- Jason Scotland St Johnstone
- Kris Commons Nottingham Forest
- Scott Sinclair Chelsea
- Sean Davis Portsmouth
- David Murphy Hibernian
- Steven Fletcher Hibernian
- Steven Whittaker Hibernian
- Ben Foster Manchester United
- George Boateng Middlesbrough
- Mohamed Zidan Mainz
- Michael kightly
The players above have all been rumoured to be on Steve Bruce's wishlist for the Premiership. I have also Bruce has a 30 million pound transfer kitty. Aswell as a few young guys from Aresnal and Chelsea to join on loan.
Listen up right, contrary to popular belief, not half the Man United team isn't joining sundserland to work with Keane, if any players move its going to be O'Shea and Giggs, as theyve openly expressed an interest. however you can expect some of the following:
GK: Kameni / Sorenson / Boruc
Def: Lucio (yes!, possible 6.5million move as he can't hates living in Germany now) / O'Shea / Bale / Evans (loan) /
Mid: Gravesen (already signed) / Barton (not that anyone in Sunderland wants him) Giggs / Butt / Zenden / Keane will also put emphasis on pacey players
Att: Nugent (almost certain now) / Defoe or Keane (Keane would prefer to sign only one of these players) / Bellamy
J. J. is back and I can definitely say there will be three players coming in over the summer, there are many targets and for the three positions which are goalkeeper, winger and striker. Goalkeeping targets are Gordon, Carson and Fabianski and Fabianski is a done deal and just needs to sign and pass a medical. Winger options are Ribery, Babel or Navas, Ribery looks likly according to speculation but I believe Madrid will reject Reyes and Reyes will be offloaded to athletico for Navas. Finally t he striking options will be limited depending on who leaves the club, I can truthfully say I'm in teh dark about Henry but with Bendtner coming back I see only baptist needing to be replaced and he'll be replaced by either Robinho or Babel but a deal is now fully in motion for Babel and Saviola will sign free from Barcelona to replace Aliadiere so this will strengthen our weak striking options. Kyle bartley will sign from Bolton for £250,000. On the out is a few youngsters on loan, Aliadiere maybe to Middlesborough, ljungberg to Juventus and Flamini to Juventus. Thats all the info I have at the moment but I will keep u posted. so a summary Arsenal will sign Fabianski, Babel, Bartley and Saviola.

Complicated but stick with it. Charlton have been planning for worst case scenario for a while now and it has happened, they intend to follow the example of Birmingham City (Keep a hold of a quality unit letting the surplus leave) rather than Sunderland (sell a load, release a load, buy a load), further to this they intend on asking Arsenal for some of their top youngsters on loan, Alex Song for the season, Traore, Gavin Hoyte and Fran Merida on their wish list, in return they plan to offer Darren Bent to the Gunners. I believe they want it to be a loan signing pending their return to the premier league however Arsenal will not accept and if he doesn't move then don't expect bent to go anywhere. it is widely expected that transfer fees will return to stupidland when the increased money from TV rights is distributed so Watford, Charlton and . Sheffield United will try hold out for huge transfer fees or sell in silly season January
Concerning: "BIG EVERTON RUMOURS
Aiden McGeady will sign a five year contract worth 16k a week which will ultimately rise to 28k with Everton. Despite the exciting winger signing a new contract this season he has been tempted by a new challenge and Premiership football. £2mil will be paid up front but an extra £1.5mil is in bonuses. James Beattie will be heading the other way as part of the deal"
ARE YOU MAD! McGeady is one of Celtic's best players and having just turned 21 he is not about to waste his career by suffering and playing for (at best) a middle table team who will never win anything. Yes he just signed a new contract after thinking it long over with his dad (and agent) and is thus going nowhere. James Beattie is on Strachan's list but he is clearing out (sadly) Graveson and Jarodick from midfield, with Lennon already gone so he is not letting anyone else from midfield go. Strachan won't sign Roberts as he has played only 8 times this season and is not the big striker Celtic need. Strachan was looking at Benni McCarthy instead. However it will definitely be Robbie Keane who signs; he is desperate to play Champions league football. Craig Beattie will be locked out of Celtic park until he signs for anyone (Hibs and Hearts are looking at taking him for £100,000) as will Zurawski who basically retired last summer. Miller will be kept until January. Strachan will definitely either sign Komas, Brown or Barton for $4mil.
Mark Viduka is also thinking it over of coming back to Celtic Park and is the experience striker that is in line to 'shock' Celtic fans. Arthur Borac is however going nowhere.
Paul Ince to be unveiled as Leicester Manager on Monday 14th May, with Les Ferdinand his assistant.
Nigel Worthington has agreed to become Director of Football
PLYMOUTH ARGYLE RUMOURS. Ian Holloway has already been wheeling and dealing in a bid to strengthen his squad for next season. The pilgrims have drawn 16 games this season and Ollie is rueing the fact he didn't turn at least 5 of this into wins. 10 points would have seen Argyle finish fourth!

The players leaving Charlton will be:
l. young-a. villa/ Newcastle
Carson-Liverpool (loan return)
song-Arsenal (loan return)
zeng zhi-Middlesborough/ Bolton/ Wigan
ambrose-middborough/ Fulham/ Birmingham
faye-Birmingham/ Man City/ Portsmouth/ shef utd
a. reid-Sunderland/ A. villa/ Birmingham/ West Brom (if promoted)
D. BENT-WEST HAM (IF STAY UP) / SPURS/ MAGPIES/ GUNNERS/ DEVILS/ RED ARMY/ CHELSKI/ VILLA/
Aston Villa are looking to get Teves, Carson, Bellamy, Smith, C Ronaldo
Just heard from a reliable source that the reason why Moyes has nt signed Nugent yet is besause he has gt Darren Bent lined up instead.
Liverpool will be definitely making a move for some of these players in January.
Full back- Daniel Alves 12m/ or Giles Barnes 4m if Chelski or Barcelona or Madrid beat us to him, stop linking Alves to Man u or Arsenal because there is no possibility of that. There is an outside chance of Richards coming as a part exchange.
Winger- Simao 10-12m definite, solves the problem of both wings as he can play left or right. In the unlikely event of not getting Simao, they will go for both Alves and Barnes.
Goalkeeper- Padelli's loan move may be made permanent 2-4m, or loan extended.
Forwards- Benitez is likely to go for 1 top striker and maybe a slightly cheaper one aswell depending on whether we can get rid of Cisse. 1 top striker from Torres 20-25m, Villa 20-25m, Eto'o 25m, Henry 15m-20m. And maybe another depending on circumstances from these Tevez 15m, Saviola (free), Bent (8-11m), Amauri (7-9m), iaquinta 8m or Trezeguet 10-15m.
So in total Benitez may spend about 50million.
Definates- Dudek (free) Germany, Zenden Ajax, Bellamy (7m) Aston Villa, Fowler (new coach), Pongolle (2.7m) receativo, Tallec (1m) France.
Possibles- Carson (4m) Arsenal, Palletta (loan), Hyppia (2m) Fulham, Gonzalez (5m), Sissoko (8-10m),
Man United will get Darren Bent after Charlton's relegation. Saha will be sold off to Lyon. Fergie will therefore also sign Huntelaar or Tevez (if WH are relagated) . Bent and Huntelaar/ Tevez, along with Rooney and Rossi will be enough strike power.
In defense we will have Pique, Evans, Simpson and Bardsley back. So I'd be surprised if we do sign a defender. If we get either Micah Richards or Bale, then I think the likes of Brown, Silvestre or even possibly Heinze will be sold off.
In Midfield we're more likely to sign Nani and Sidwell or Reo-Coker (than Hargreaves) . Hargreaves' price is too high. A real surprise instead would be Rio Mavumba of Bordeaux. Manutd for champions again. VIVA MAN UTD VIVA
Gunner Rumours The arrival of goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski means Arsenal will not look into that department in the summer meaning no gordon or Carson. Wenger sees him as the long-term successor to jens lehmann. Arsene likes the look of the defense and will not look to bring in many players for that area. Wenger will look to add more depth to the wings and will finally move for franck Ribery. Reyes will return momentarily with the beast going back to Madrid. We will then sell Reyes to Sevilla for as little as £4 million as it seems no one wants him. The next deal will also come from Sevilla with antonio puerta and jesus Navas moving to the Emirates for a combined fee of £17 million. Flamini will be sold to juve for 500 k will be swapped for David Trezeguet who is adamant that he will not be at juve next season. This will cement Henry's position with the Gunners. The only defensive signing of the window will be left or centre back Christian chibu for £7 million, Ljungberg will be heading the other way. After an unimpressive first season Gallas will go to real for £7 million The team will look like this GK: Lehmann (fabianski) LB: Clichy (Traore) CB: Toure (Senderos) CB: Chivu (Djourou) RB: Eboue (Hoyte) LM: Ribery (Rosicky) CM: Fabregas (Denilson) CM: Gilberto (Diaby) RM: Navas (Hleb) ST: Van Persie (Trezeguet) ST: Henry (Walcott)
Van Der Vaart
Berbatov will not be going to anywhere next year. Martin Jol knows that he can sell him for almost as much in 2008 and sees him as vital if Spurs are to qualify for Europe next year. Instead, expect United to get Klose, who said he will not be moving elsewhere in Germany and is fed up with always finishing second at Bremen.
SAF will also be going after Bale, with Heinze staying and Silvestre leaving.
If Hargreaves is not affordable, look instead for Tim Cahill, Torsten Frings, or Wesley Sneijder to come.
If Mourinho is not sacked, there is a possibility that he will sell SWP or Robben to United as they don't fuction well in his conservative, narrow system.
Walsall FC to sign Dagenham&Redbridge striker Paul Benson to partner for a £50,000. Player of the season Dean Keates and defender Chris Westwood will be on their way to Peterborough United after the league 2 champions refused to give them a three-year contract.
Walsall In's and Out's
Paul Benson (Dagenham&Redbridge) - £50,000
Kevin Harper (Stoke City) - Free
Andrew Whing (Coventry City) - Free
Leon Constantine (Port Vale) - Free

Chris Westwood (Peterborough United - Free
Tony Bedeau (Bury) - Free
Netan Sansara (Shrewsbury Town) - Loan

Released veteran Teddy Sheringham is expected to join in the summer as he is a free agent but wants to Carry on for what will be his last season to help old pall mowbray at the hawthorns (WBA)
Rumours in Edinburgh suggest that Larry Kingston will join Rangers at the end of the season.
Also should Celtic sell Arthur Borac they will move for Craig Gordon with a £4mill fee being agreed.
I just got an info on Arsenal signing Babel for £6m. Arsene Wenger has also shown interest in the following players:
Wenger to get all his targets. Also coming back are Brendtner and Carlos Vela. Ustari to become first choice GK next season. Reyes will stay in Spain and Ljunberg will go to Juventus.
AFC to challenge for all major next season as they want to emulate The Arsenalnal Ladies.
This is 100% true. its to do with the departure of Craig Bellamy from Liverpool. Last week, Wednesday the 2nd of may, the day after Liverpool Beta Chelski in the Champions League Craig Bellamy was in a Belfast Pub, I could name the pub as it is a local of mine, as it is in the student part of Belfast. Craig has been here on 3 separate occasions, once after the Wales Norn Ireland match and on one other occasion. I was presnet at the three times. OK to the 'rumour' I went up to Craig, who was well on, he was drinking Corona btw, I asked him to sign my shirt, he said thers no point wrecking a good shirt cause he won't be there next year. He's had a fallout with Rafa, and wants to go back to Mark Hughes at Blackburn where he felt appreciated. There you go straight from the horses mouth!
Fabrice Muamba will sign for Reading during the summer but only on loan, as Wenger would like to see how the youngster will adapt to Premiership life before considering Muamba for sale or part of The Arsenalnal squad.
Muamba enjoyed a season long loan at Birmingham and was a big part in their promotion, and became a cult hero to the Birmingham fans, and showed his like for the club by his celebrating with the fans even though he was suspended for that game and stayed out the longest to throw shirts and stuff to the fans.
But Wenger would like him to try at Reading especially if Reading make a European spot.
Jose Mourinho is set to make some significant changes at the Bridge next season. The defense has been exposed as lacking strength in depth this season and Chelsea will move to bring in more players for the centre-back and right-back positions. Boulahrouz, Ferreira and Geremi will make way for Alex and the Costa (both PSV) and Chimbonda (Tottenham) or Miguel (Valencia) . Glen Johnson will be recalled from his loan spell at Portsmouth to act as an understudy to the new right-back.
Ballack seems to have convinced Mourinho that his ankle operation was crucial and will remain a Blue for the new campaign. Steve Sidwell will be brought in on a free to provide cover in midfield when Essien and Mikel go to the African Cup of Nations in January.
If a substantial offer is made for Wright-Phillips (apparently both Villa and Liverpool are interested) then the board may be persuaded to sell, in which case Ricardo Quaresma, the Porto winger, will be brought in.
The majority of the club's spending will go on the acquisition of a new striker to relieve Drogba of the scoring burden: targets are Villa, Torres and Berbatov although none of these guys will come cheap!
Squad for 2007/ 08:
GKs: Cech, Cudicini, Hilario
RBs: Chimbonda/ Miguel, Johnson
LBs: A. Cole, Bridge
CBs: Terry (c), Carvalho, Alex, the Costa
CMs: Essien, Lampard, Mikel, Ballack, Sidwell, Diarra
WGs: J. Cole, Robben, SWP/ Quaresma, Sinclair
STs: Drogba, Villa/ Torres/ Berbatov, Shevchenko, Kalou
Tottenham are definitely signing Reo Coker and Scott Parker for around 8 mil each. they will also look for another striker such as Darren Bent
Andy Smith has been released by Bristol City and apparently is moving to Bristol Rovers on a bosman, Paul trollope has been monitering smiths progress at Ashton gate, and now trollope is set to swoop for the out of contract forward
Some more info I have recieved from a source deep within Celtic Park, last month I told you the 2 WOW signings were going to be Riquelme and Roy Makaay, I can now say Makaay is 80% done deal, his package is sorted it is up to him now if he wants to play in the SPL. Riquelme is not as clear as it was, seems to be a stumbling point over whom actually owns him? that's what I was told.
My mole keeps telling me one Stan Petrov is desperate to come back after a disapointing debut season with Aston Celtic, WGS is not sure if he wants him back £3 mil the figure quoted.
Sidwell was a target but he now has a lot of offers on the table and again the SPL may prove a stumbling block.
Stephen Appaih is 100% done deal £2.5 mil, will take over from Lenny in the middle.
Look for many names over the coming weeks with Kadlec, Shittu, Robbie Keane featuring as these were 3 names passed on to me.
Now for the information that really blew me away and believe it if you like, I still don't but my mole tells me we are in with a number of clubs for the signature of one MAnuel Fernando Torres, yes the LA Ligas top scorer over the past 2 yrs, a figure of 18 mil was quoted and it don't put us off, the reason being Dermot Desmond is so impressed by the savings made he will fund a super signing himself, contact has been made with Athletico with Nakamura a make wieght as he has been a long term target for the Spanish.
Unbelievable I know but I will be back with more in around 4 weeks!
CELTIC SUMMER TRANSFERS
Boruc will go for £7mil; Gordon to come in for £4.5mil
Balde to leave for free back to France
Celtic to let Doumbe go and sign Wittaker for £1mil
Lennon's replacement will be Scott Brown not Joey Barton as he is an Everton fan and Moyes is keen. This will be £5mil.
Gravesen to Sunderland for £2.5mil. Appiah comes in for £3mil (done deal)
We will sign Bellamy for £4.5mil as Aston Villa are now favourites to get unsettled Defoe who he prefers to Bellamy. This will be the perfect foil for Big Jan and will inject some much needed movement upfront.
Miller to go to Sheffield United for £1mil
Celtic's full style to change we will be a faster, more mobile and skillfull team to hold off the great challege from Walter Smiths men who are set to sign a few decent players themselves.
Man U's 3 major signings this summer are:
There will also be some other transfer activity which I don't know.
Everton look set to seal a £7.5million deal for Tottenham striker Robbie Keane, whilst they are also interested in out of favour strike partner Defoe if Keane won't move, for £6 million.
Rangers Tranfers Update
With Jean-Claude Darcheville already signed on a Bosman and the Webster deal to be completed in the next couple of weeks along with Gow and Broadfoot coming in, the Defence is complete and only one more striker will be needed. That will be Relegated Leeds Striker David Healy. Scott Brown will sign for around £3.5 Million and a loan deal for Kieran Richardson may be completed before the deadline. If Sebo and Novo decide to leave then Robbie Fowler will be wearing the Rangers shirt next season.
Aston Villa or Fulham will sign Neil Lennon from Celtic on a free this summer. The 35 year old Celtic skipper is keen to join the Premiership.
Saviola has signed 4 Real Madrid n the deal will b confirmed soon (K. Dot)
David Healy - Leeds (2.5 million)
Anton Ferdinand - West Ham (4 million)
Gennaro Gattuso - AC Milan (14 million)
Quaresma - Porto (15 million)
Ross Graham - Kilmarnock (125k)
Money coming in from northern irish/ English contingent.
Gavin Rae - Reading (1 million)
Dado Prso - RETIRED
Sasa Papac - Hearts (1 million)
Filip Sebo - Manchester United (14 million)
(Manchester United see him as a possible replacement for Rooney as he is going to Barcelona in the summer)
These are all true.
More rumours on the way.
Mon the Gers. Ross
In a big shock for the Premiership and Spurs, Dimitar Berbatov will leave Tottenham not to join keen employers Chelsea or Man United, but he will join LFC. ! in a crude move by Benitez, Rafa signed Voronin on a free knowing that he was a success with Berbatov for Leverkuzen. and Berbatov is a little tired of playing with players that do not match his class and wants to be playing Champions League football again, and he sees playing with his old striking partner an excellent way of doing that, they know each others games inside out and as Berbatov will be cheaper than either Eto'o and Villa Rafa will snap up Berbatov especially as he has a seasons experience of the Premiership and has got used to the pace of it!
Liverpool will also sign Quaresma to provide attacking flair from the wings!
Heard today that the favorites for the Newcastle job r sven and gerard houllier, allardyce doesn't even want the job. anelka is not leaving Bolton this season if they get into Europe, diouf however could go to Atletico Madrid for 8.5 million. Bolton to sign 2 full backs right and left, 2 mid with pace, campo to leave to go back home to Spain.
Arsenal Bulletin .
Expect AFC 2 move 4 NUFC striker Michael Owen as he has a 9M Clause in his contract, which 4 a striker of his quality is damn cheap . Possable move by AFC 4 Joey Barton 2 replace Gilberto who will move 2 Juventas, as 4 the rumours about some Polish gk AFC were 2 sign ? its probaly incorrect info .
