Beccio to Celtic . . I MEAN COME ON CELTS! ! FFS!

1. He signed a new contract with Leeds 10 days ago
2. He's 1 of 2 strikers leeds have available atm
3. Celtic have 8 forwards on their books.
and 4. HES TOTALLY AVERAGE AND NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR CELTIC NO.7! ( And im very much a Rangers fan )

Celtic will sign Ramis and St Ledger and also , In MY opinion , If Bellamy don't make the 25man Man City squad i expect him to accept WHATEVER celtic can afford tbh , think about it . . why would he quit football all–together , rather than accept £35k a week to play for a team he loves week in week out?

Rangers targets. .

Nugent/Smith – Portsmouth ( 1.2m ) 1 WILL happen

Welcome – Motugua ( 400k ) WILL sign in nxt 48 hours

Bazarite – Arsenal ( Free ) WILL sign in nxt 48 hours

Nikica Jelavic – ( 4m ) PROBABLY sign when despute about 30% sell on fee is resolved – Rangers been asked to pay 15% of this directly to his old club S.V. Zulte Waregem.

Katlego Mphela – (Maybe) Desperate for the move , not to sure if Rangers are that interested tbh.

Bongani Khumalo – SuperSport United ( 500k ) WILL be signed but don't expect a superstar as he will be used as back–up.

Benny Feilhaber – AGF Aarhus ( Maybe ) COULD be signed for Right side , as Steven Davis takes up a central role this season.

Also expect 1 or 2 loan signings , targets being:
Tom Cleverly – Needs Champs League exp
Federico Facheda – Long shot
Rodrigo Possebon – Will happen
Jake Livermore – Maybe
Marcus Bent – Expect this move if Jelavic don't happen.

Any feedback should be headed . . To Ceejay

PS . . ED. . you might wanna make a new page just for this submission lol sorry , i am obsessed with typing :)

I am good mates with Matthew Collecott from our days at PriceWaterhouse. He informed me when I asked why Harry was at the NorwayFrance match tonight, that it was because of a Valerenga forward of the name Mostafa Abdellaoue. As he is club secretary, he's had some contact with Valerenga, so this is pretty serious. Anybody know anything about him?(18)(9)

I work in for a car hire company in glasgow and got a call to pick up johan mjalby (ex celtic player) at prestwick airport just over an hour ago. In my line of work we are not allowed to speak to the client unless spoken too, so I don't have much to say as he never spoke to me, or left a tip! !
Anyway, he did say when on the phone "he will have a look up here on friday and make a decision but looking good". . . . . Don't know who he was talking too or who was talking about??

EDITOR

Please tell the people who think because Ozil profile was on the united website they thing he is signing its wrong look.

SOURCE: man united website

This is in no way a precursor to us signing the player – for technical reasons we have to give biogs to any player who exists in our Transfer Speculation section, as well as anybody who plays against us. Hence, you can find biogs for Robbie Fowler or Steve McManaman if you dig deep enough, but it doesn't mean they're on their way.

IF YOU CHANGE THE LAST NUMBERS OF THE LINK YOU GET DIFFERENT PLAYERS! (24)(7)

I only post when I have info, such as O'Neill going, which I was right about, though it happened a lot quicker than I expected.}

If your so special tell us something then? If you can't shut it and leave ed. alone!

To the guy who said. . . . . .
Becchio to be no 7 for celtic. . . . . Absolutely spot on. Stv just showed mjalby and some other dude in leeds to meet with becchio and his agent. The thunder is coming!
Ps. Although becchio is pretty average in a rotten team, he would be great in the famous green and white hoops! Leeds fans, back off, yees aren't even a big side!
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

I'm sorry if Celtic are so good why didn't they win the League last season– hmmmmmmmmm

oh wait i know it's because they are the second best team in a league that has as much talent as league 1.

Bechio to stay at leeds– there is no news what so ever on becchio to celtic not in the mirror or internet or STV or Snn or skysports.

so all you desperate Celtic fans face the facts you are NOT going to get any one as good as becchio. maybe you can get morgan from aldershot

To the sunderland beach ball fan
totally agree sunderland do need to balance the books, i totally expect us to sign heskey for 1 million as bruce will still want a target man and give some money back to the club. This has been shown as all the players we are linked with are loan deals.
players out before deadline will include
anton ferdinand
phil bardsley
tanio
george mcCartney
INS
heskey

My dads mate works with a chief scout for Man Utd. He has been informed that Utd are close to completing the signing of youngster Greg Levitt from Brighton and Hove albion. One for the future apparantly.

I support Brighton (local team) and that guy doesn't exist(2)(12)

"Although its thought there may be a slight issue with Young's 75grand a week wage demands as Spurs are unlikey to want to break there own 65grand a week wage cap."

Uhm. . Young's on 65k a week and is our highest earner. He's also on international duty and is not in talks with Spurs. If Keane is rated at 11m than Young is rated at 30m, which is what Lerner actually rates him at and not the 16–20m most people think on here.(3)(11)

All this regarding manutd.com is total s t. A while ago you could still get Zinedine Zidane's, Figo's profile (maybe you still can)

United website was not hacked, it was not human error, it was infact as editor stated earlier, a way to increase traffic to the site, searches on google and the like for ozil will link to manutd.com because of the ozil page, thus increasing traffic. This is why the page cannot b accessed from the main site and only from external links. If u don't believe this start believimg united have signed khedira and fabiano as there are also profiles for them, of course the press don't mention this as it would ruin there latest bullsh@t story!(8)(4)

 

 11 Aug 2010 19:56:23
""Secondly, no one will know about an Ozil deal until it's done especially in regards to Man Utd as they are not ones for completing deals through the media look at the signing of the young defender apparently signed this week a deal was actually announced in early March.""

WE KNEW MONTHS AGO THAT VERMIJL WAS BOUGHT FOR 300K EUROS!

If you read what I put properly you will soon see that this is what I put.

To clear up a few "rumours" – betting odds, whilst calculated on probabilities, also take into account how much money have been placed on any given outcome. For example, SkyBet offering 1/3 on Ozil joining Man Utd will not have been calculated purely on it's chance of happening – SkyBet will also take into account the amount of money being placed on it happening to protect themselves financially should it happen.(3)(9)

Editor mate i gotta say something to the absolute thick buffoon who came on here earlier and said about the cheif man utd scout for africa being a close family friend and in the same sentence says that their friend claims to be a scout ! if he is a close friend then surely you would know ! and why if he an african scout would he have info on a german ?! wtf ! why do you muppets who make up bull like this even bother its a waste of everyones time !(1)(7)

I heard Arsenal are definately interested in Emir Spahic, also they are looking at his team mate Karim Ait–Fana who is a left forward. I heard the fee was around £14 million for both of them in a double swoop.(23)(25)

 

 11 Aug 2010 18:35:05
Some nufc things that have been reported in the press, and a piece I've heard:

The deal for Ben Arfa isn't progressing too well. Chris Hughton denied any contact, but leading journos and french media are reporting there have been discussions, but Marseille are quite hard to work with. The deal could still go through, as Ben Arfa could kick his heels in to get the move to England he wants.

Leon Best, nufc striker, is out with ankle ligaments for 3–4 months, so Newcastle will go for Jason Roberts or Marlon Harewood as a replacement. Both would be cheap.(13)(12)

 

 11 Aug 2010 18:36:21
Newcastle Uniteds move for Ben Arfa is still on, Christ Hughton will play down all transfer targets so no one else moves in, he denied the sol campbell signing and then signed him 2 days later part of Newcastles statement a few months back was that the club would not comment on transfers in or out of the club. Ireland has been seen outside SJP for what reason I don't know, Also Newcastle are looking to bring in a striker before Monday due to news that Leon Best is out for 4 months.

NUFC in:
Ben Arfa loan. Expect this by next week Marsielle are holding out for a better deal but the player will push the move, Although Newcastle could pay the £6m depending on how other targets go.

Boateng he has been in talks with newcastle for a few days now, £4m plus ryan taylor as hughton doesn't rate taylor, it will be a loan deal for the season

Arevalo: will sign next week for £2m

Hughton will sign either, , Keane or Levezzi on loan if these fail he'll go back in for Mulvet, although newcastle had scouts at the Italy game last night watching 3 players 2 mids and 1 striker

Ebondo free

OUTS

Forster loan.
r.taylor loan
smith £3m rangers
xisco £2m racing santander
lua lua loan

Ranger is set to stay after leon bests injury.

total money spent £18m

Sales £5m(18)(25)

Agreeing a fee with Bremen hasnt been a problem and although no offical bid has been placed several clubs have verbally agreed deals in principal.

The problem is the agents for all three parties (The player and the clubs) who all want to make this a big pay day.

Manchester United are struggling to please all these people despite a deal being really close. This delay led Chelsea to come in to the equation two days ago.

Red Nose has reacted to this and people in Old Trafford expect the deal to be more or less sorted by Tuesday(28)(14)

 

 11 Aug 2010 18:05:49
I just posted that manutd.com have a profile for Ozil as they do alot of linked players. . I would now like to say that after looking into it im not buying their excuse. Either the site was hacked or someone at the club made an error in putting it on before the deal is finalised. . .watch this space i say. . (23)(14)

 

 11 Aug 2010 18:09:05
Man utd website!

The speculation over whether Manchester United will beat Barcelona to the signature of German midfielder Mesut Ozil was sent into overdrive when United's official website accidentally published a profile of the Werder Bremen man in the club's first team section.

Ive heard loads of def rumours that havent paid off.

Getting concerned by the lack of business {editor's note – only thing I have heard I posted about the club agreeing a deal with a Bundesliga club for a defender. I don't have any more than that, other than I was told it was definitely not Mertesacker. Apart from that, I have heard nothing from Arsenal at all.}

Ed 2 well informed sources have mentioned the name Maik Franz? (typical Wenger signing) of Eintract Frankfurt, don't know if you know anything more on whether it is Franz or anyone else(12)(14)

HEY ALL!

IF YOU GOOGLE "OZIL MAN UTD" UNDER THE BEEB ENTRY YOU WILL SEE A LINK TO THE OFFICAL MAN UTD WEBSITE. IF YOU ENTER THE LINK IT TAKES YOU TO THE PLAYER PROFILE SECTION OF THE SITE AND TO THE VERY BASIC SHELL PROFILE FOR MESUT OZIL!

NOW IF YOU YOU ENTER MANUTD.COM AND GO TO THE PLAYER PROFILES SECTION IT APPEARS BE SUFFERING A GLICHE. ( NOT LOADING FULL FIRST TEAM PROFILES)

IT MAY WELL BE THE THE SITE WAS HACKED OR THAT SOMEONE AT MANUTD.COM ACCIDENTALLY RELEASE THE PROFILE BUT IT HAS DEFINATELY BEEN REMOVED ( BUT THE GOOGLE LINK STILL WORKS)

IS THIS A MASSIVE HOAX? OR HAVE WE SIGNED MESUT??

ED – I CAN POST LINK IF YOU NEED. {editor's note – it quite often happens that the web design company set up extra pages purely to increase web traffic to the site. Ozil being hot property, at the moment, it is simple to set up a page for him until Google see it and then remove it. Google will still link to it and drive traffic there.}If you read the blog you would know why. Each player has a profile made if they have been mention in transfer speculation or team news. If you change the numbers at the end of the URL you can get different players who wee have been linked with – Casillas, Buffon, Modric, etc. . are all on there it is NO Hoax

Some information for you and I told you I was right and it is spreading like a virus.

Danny Taylor, of the Guardian, Tweets: "Fergie stayed back after Fulham friendly and was with Bremen directors/entourage in boardroom." Interesting.

You heard this from me earlier(27)(15)

Latest Celtic News. . . .

I am from Parkhead and I am actually a die hard Rangers fan but do a lot of community work for both halves of the old firm and the latest news around both clubs is this

Man U to sign Ozil and as a result Tom Cleverley going to Rangers on Season long loan as well as Barazite as he turned up well for the reserves last night and is a wide player.

Tommy Smith (cant believe that) will be signed by tomorrow PM @ the latest and jelavic deal to be completed subj to medical by Fri after Friendlys. My understanding is that Rangers do also hope to make one more major "marquee" signing but are awaiting the outcome of the EPL teams announcing their 25. This could go right to the wire but as you would expect it would be a player outwith teams that are in European Comp or one that is not cup tied. One name that I had heard was Adam Llana which given his already public announcement that he would not be a "benchwarmer" may add up? Not sure how marquee he is though

Celtic– A formal approach will be made to Bellamy offering £35,000 PW plus hefty league winners bonus. If that fails a name that was mentioned was John Carew. Again, not sure on this.

A late bid from Celtic for Kelvin Wilson and Sean St ledger will happen for St Ledger sooner, wilson latterly in the window. Celtic will also make a loan move for Shay Given in the same way they did for Robbie Keane(58)(36)

Unsigned told us at 11 Aug 2010 16:34:14:

"One that I have just heard flying around the training ground of Man Utd (of which my sources arew limited in all truth) is that Mesut Oezul will be joining Man Utd in January and not before. It is thought that Oezul wants to spend as much time at Werder Bremen as possible before moving to Manchester"

In which case he will stay to the summer when his contract runs out.

Expect Oezil to leave during this transfer window. Maybe Barcelona, maybe Chelsea, maybe somewhere else. Replacement at Werder Bremen? Maybe Ben Arfa, maybe Arda?

"Rangers – News is that Freddy Adu, may be coming for a trial and is interested because of his friendship with Mo Edu."

I am not sure if this is news or speculation. Freddy Adu has certainly had initial discussions in the States with the MLS about a return – possibly to LA Galaxy. Benfica will certainly be happy to let him move on for a small consideration and have given him permission to speak to ther sides at will.

As for Rangers, I think that Scottish football might prove a little on the robust side for Freddy. I can't see that he would know Maurice Edu particularly well – they may have played in the US Under 23 side once or twice together.

Doubtful at best.

ARSENAL NEWS!?Apparently Mark Schwarzer has handed in a transfer request but fulham have denied that but i personally believe they are lying in order to keep the atmosphere in the dressing room stable including the fans after a hectic summer of prolonged uncertainty over the position of the manager (roy hodgson leaving etc.) Hence expect the news of his imminent move to arsenal announced by next week as wenger always gets his when he stays quite about it which is the reason why we havent heard much about t(29)(6)

Barazite to be signed on Season Loan by Friday, as will Tommy Smith of Pompey (500k–750k).
Don't see Jelavic being a Teddy Bear by the weekend, due to Int Duty, and his wage demands & his issues with Rapid!

Kieren Westwood of Coventry City will fly to the north east tomorrow morning to discuss terms with Sunderland over a proposed £3.75 million deal. Coventry will not let there star man go for nothing at the end of the season and therefore are being forced to sell the Republic of Ireland international. This is concrete information from a Sunderland source.

One that I have just heard flying around the training ground of Man Utd (of which my sources arew limited in all truth) is that Mesut Oezul will be joining Man Utd in January and not before.

Jelavic to sign for gers, fee agreed with clubs all that is needed to be confirmd is the wages whic as the player wants to sign shouldnt be an issue, Tommy Smith will also sign before sat, Smith will play him out wide rather than a CF, also expect Arsenal youngster Brazite on loan, the player in theGlasgow Evening Times has issued a come and get me plea, the player also played80 mins in the Rangers reserves defeat at Glentoran last night.

So by weekend

Jelavic £3.5 m
Tommy Smith £ 1m
Barazite Season Loan

further additions

Possenbon – Man U – Loan
Hutton – spurs – Loan –
another Centre half – poss south african boy

Also don't rule out poss further loan moves as Smith is owed a few favours from messers Rednap and Fergie.

Mighty Man WATP

The transfer of Barazite may well a permenant deal. From what I have read although he is still technically contracted to Arsenal. I am of the belief that Arsenal are willing to let him leave on a free transfer.

I also expect Jelavic to be confirmed a Rangers player within the next 48 hours. He has definetely pulled out of the Croatia squad due to a 'Minor' injury.

I am not sure about the signing of Tommy Smith, I don't understand why we would offer £300,000 for him in January and then triple that offer despite the player having done nothing to make the offer improving so much.

Also you have missed our Feilhaber & the other American winger who look almost destined to sign. These 2 players would cost the same as Tommy Smith, and I would say Feilhaber is probably a better player and younger as well.

I to believe that a couple of Man Utd youngsters will sign on season loan deals.

Rangers

Rangers will have completed the signings of Jelevic, Smith, Barazite and and American pair Alejandro Bedoya and Benny Feilhaber by the end of next week.

As far as im aware another few signings and loan deals still to go through before the end of the market. W.Smith has insisted that he won't waste money so the end of August will be an important time for the gers.

RANGERS NEWS

As I said yesterday, the Jelavic deal is dead in the water. The latest I've heard is that Rangers don't want a fan backlash and have pushed forward with other targets. Tommy Smith is due in Glasgow tonight for talks and a tour of Ibrox/Murraypark and discussions with Dundee United over a transfer of Conway is underway, although apparently United want at least £1.5m for him and Rangers are only realistically willing to pay up to £1m for him. Walter wants both Smith and Conway in the team for the weekend as there is a few injuries in the first team. Barazite is causing quite a stir with certain staff, although Walter wants to see him play a few closed door games first before committing to a year long loan. Goodwillie deal won't happen unless United reduce their asking fee to closer to £1m. Rangers are primarily on the lookout for a quality striker though since the Jelavic deal collapsed and this will probably not be done until the end of the window and is looking like it could be a surplus squad player from the Premiership. And don't shoot the messanger, but the name Alan Smith is cropping up again, with Newcastle needing to enhance their squad and Smith having had a torrid time of it, this name has been mentioned and could be a 6 month loan deal until January.(22)(24)

 

 11 Aug 2010 17:02:05
ARSENAL
Shay Given or Joe Hart rather unlikey to come to the Arsenal on a loan. Can't see Man City giving a Premiership rival a quality goalkeeper. Shay Given would be more likey to come to the Arsenal as a transfer given his age and Joe Hart's fledging career. Contrary to rumours Mark Schwarzer has not handed in a transfer request at Fulham although Arsene is still interested in the Australian goalkeeper.

He doubts, however, that we need him, because he believes that Cleverley is a much better player.

Just an update on the Mesut Ozil saga. Mesut Ozil is weighing up offers from Man Utd, Barcelona and Chelsea. A fee of around £10,000,000 has been agreed with all 3 clubs but it is now up to Ozil. SAF is confident he will join Man Utd as he can promise him regular first team football. I know several of the staff at Old Trafford one of them has important knowledge of transfer dealings and Mesut Ozil will decide within the next 72 hours. Whilst SAFs camp are confident there is still a chance that they could miss out. Hopefully Man Utd can make a special announcement on this issue before they completely destroy Newcastle Utd on Monday.(26)(18)

Arsenal are not going to get Subotic, it will be Tasci as he has more exprience and he is also a better defender. He has a buy out clause of 18.5 mil so that is much we will have to spend.

i told you first of kenwyn jones going to stoke, and some people didn't beleive me (you know who you are ) as i said before, we have to sell to balance the books because keane paid over the odds to get average players and also the wages he paid was to high. i also told you we would get loan players or brucey bargains, the next players in are welbeck and onuoha (well reported) but that leaves us still a midfielder and striker short. nelso valdes is one we are looking at and also loic remy who stoke tried to sign earlier last week. there is still a lot of players we need to sell or loan out (mainly defenders) this season we will do better than last but we had a fantastic start last year and i think this year may not be as good but we will come good F.T.M

I'm led to believe that it is now down to Big Sam, Kevin MacDonald and Jurgen Kllinsmen.(11)(16)

"Wba won't sign a single class player and never will. FACT"

It's amazing how people can type any old rubbish and put the word FACT at the end of it. It doesn't make it any more believable. It looks like sour grapes to me! If signing "class players" means West Brom end up like Portsmouth, i'd rather stick with the players we have.

There's plenty of rumours floating around about new strikers coming in including Carew, but that may now be on the backburner following O'Neil's departure. I think its fair to say tht WBA won't sign anyone that does not improve the squad. Quality counts, not necessarily quantity.

Even without further additions, the West Brom squad is better than any other we have had in the four prem promotions over the last 10 years and may surprise a few people. Much will depend on Di Matteo's performance. He'd better hit the ground running!(13)(6)

Liverpool news:

Just been talking to an ex player (1970s) in a local food pub, he seems to thing the following will be happening in the next couple of weeks, I think I have remembered everything accurately.

Roy took the job knowing there was only a couple of million available in the summer until new ownership is compete, but was assured he could spend all income from sales (so far sales out weigh purchases by 5million).

When Maschcerano (20 mil) and Insua (4 mil) go there will be approx 29 million available. It is unlikely a new owner will have everything signed and complete before the close of this transfer window.

Roy has earmarked 5 million for Poulson, 3 million for Brad Jones and a 12 million double swoop for SWP and Bellamy

Left back position may not be filled its proving difficult to find a better alternative to Aurelio / Kelly for a suitable price, so he is to leave this as it is for now.

No big name signings are expected until new owners are in, however it was mentioned (admittedly when I ask) that Aguero's name has been mentioned if money was to arrive earlier than expected.

IN (total 3.7 million)
Danny Wilson Rangers £2m
Jonjo Shelvey Charlton Athletic £1.7m
Joe Cole Chelsea Free
Milan Jovanović Standard Liege Free

OUT (approx 9 million)
Yossi Benayoun Chelsea £5m
Albert Riera Olympiacos £3.37m
Mikel San Jose Athletic Bilbao Undisclosed
James Ellison Burton Albion Free
David Martin Milton Keynes Dons Free
Robbie Threlfall Bradford City Free
Philipp Degen Stuttgart Season Loan
Francisco Manuel Durn Released

I really hope you are right, but how reliable are you? where did you get this info from?
i just want the Ozil stuff to end now and for him obviously to end up with us. but i have a feeling, that if we do miss out on Ozil, then possibly a move for Ganso (Paulo Hernique – Santos) could happen, because i know United were linked with him and seeing that City's first option has expired, you never know. maybe im just clutching at straws though, because we are in need of that bit of magic that can turn a game. get back to us mateee

PartyWolf


I can't tell my extant contacts by I know people inside united. I broke the Owen story and a few others.

The problem which may occur is if the deal goes public it could cause more clubs coming it. That's why Fergie wants it shh shh.

Fergie has had scouts watching Ozil all year and he seemed very interested. Now more clubs have seen how good he is because of the world cup more clubs are interested. The deal needs to be done quickly and quietly.

I'll try to find out more but no improvements today. Most likely to be next week.(24)(21)

Just wanted to talk about some of the rumours flying around about LUFC.

Firstly there is no way Becchio will be sold to anyone he is key to our side, and is a favourite of grayson and the fans.

Secondly Andy Robinson won't be going to Neath, after the Wakefield freindly he spoke openly to a couple of fans and said he has had no offers of any intrest and that he will more than likely see out the last year of his contract unless it gets paid up.

Finally it is clear for all to see that we need two more additions to the squad to ensure a decent season. We need a striker and a holding midfielder, but we as fans can only speculate as nobody knows what direction we are going except Grayson and Bates. However I would love too see Smith And Hulse back at Elland Rd.

To the people saying Ozil is joining Manchester United.

It is true, it's a matter of when, not if. Expected to happen around next week some time next week when Ozil comes over to discuss personal terms.

Ferguson didn't want to loan out Cleverly in case we missed out on Ozil, as we would have no back up. WB have accepted Manchester United bid, hence why Barcelona are going for Masch.

Ozils agent Reza Fazeli was in fact talking to Ferguson when he was watching the Fulham game. At half time in that match Ferguson went to sit in a private box with Reza Fazeli to talk about a possible deal.

When each party were asked about who Ozil is going to both agreed to say they don't know. It was a smoke screen and to keep the deal private.


i really hope you are right, but how reliable are you? where did you get this info from?

Jelavic scored at the weekend for R.Vienna , and during his celebrations he ripped off his top and he also slighly injured himself during the celbrations. He therefore had to pull out of the Croatia squad. So get your facts right you idiots before slgging people off and calling them liars for aparently seeing Jelavic at Glasgow Airport.

Whether he was or was not, I don't know. I find it 50–50. I do though know for a fact he is not in the Croatia squad.

"To the person who said they saw Reza Fazeli (ozils agent) at manchester airport. yes he may have been there but he is also Hamit Altıntop agent who is also been linked with man city! "

Though the agents work for both players, Hamit Altıntop has just signed a new contract with Bayern Munich in June which keeps him at the club for another 12 months i believe. So doubt he would still be on Man City radar.

As for Ozil like i said i would wait until the 18th to see what's going on, if he plays in that UCL game he will be cup tied and thus will leave for free next summer, if he doesn't play he will leave before September.(20)(13)

To the people saying Ozil is joining Manchester United.

It is true, it's a matter of when, not if. Expected to happen around next week some time next week when Ozil comes over to discuss personal terms.

Ferguson didn't want to loan out Cleverly in case we missed out on Ozil, as we would have no back up. WB have accepted Manchester United bid, hence why Barcelona are going for Masch.

Ozils agent Reza Fazeli was in fact talking to Ferguson when he was watching the Fulham game. At half time in that match Ferguson went to sit in a private box with Reza Fazeli to talk about a possible deal.

When each party were asked about who Ozil is going to both agreed to say they don't know. It was a smoke screen and to keep the deal private.(23)(12)

Celtic will sign 5 more players, these will be.

GK – Kerian Westwood – Coventry – £1m
LB – Carlos Salcido – PSV – £2m
CB – Francisco Rodrguez – PSV – £1m+Loovens
RM – Liam Lawrence – Stoke – £1.8m
ST – Craig Bellamy – Man City – Loan

We will wait untill January to sign 2 promising CB's in Kelvin Wilson and Yohan Benaloune for 500k each or on pre–contract agreements.

Check your sources mate. Lawrence has decided to stay at Stoke due to Celtic dragging their feet, and Bellamy would only be offered 30K a week so the chances of him accepting that are slim!(17)(34)

I wish the Arsenal supporters would get real, there is no chance that City are going to loan a rival one of their keepers and a decent one at that, i am not an Arsenal fan but my missus is and so is her source that tells us Arsenal are still after Mark Schwarzer and that of course is not what my missus wanted to hear either, but its true!

Arsene Wenger is also looking at about five different Centre backs but will only buy two of them, Spahic & Bougherra are favorites! I know its not great but this is typical Arsene i am sure you will agree? There will be no high profile players brought in and no more midfielders or strikers unless its youth!(26)(14)

Juventus are ready to launch a buying spree as they prepare to cash in on Diego.

The Brazil international will return to the Bundesliga before the summer market shuts as Wolfsburg and Schalke haggle with Juve over a fee for the midfielder.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Juve will put the cash raised towards a buying spree.

Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko, Lyon wing–back Michel Bastos, CSKA Moscow winger Milos Krasic and Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma are all on Juve's shopping list.

Juve also have made contact with Hamburg this week about a price for their Dutch winger Eljero Elia.

Mark Schwarzer has submitted a transfer request at Fulham The Aussie keeper, 37, wants to force a move to Arsenal, who bid £2million before the World Cup.
Rangers are poised to make Portsmouth striker Tommy Smith their first signing for two years,

The Gers have finally met Pompey's £1.5million valuation for the frontman.

Boss Walter Smith had an initial bid rejected by the cash–strapped Championship club in the close season.

But they have now increased their offer and could land Smith ahead of the SPL kick–off against Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Saturday.

The move for the former Watford player won't affect the big–money move for Rapid Vienna hitman Nikica Jelavic.

Ashley Young is in talks to move to Tottenham who are hoping to tie up a deal for him as soon as possible so he's available for the Champions League Qualifier against Young Boys.

The deal is thought to be worth 20million with Robbie Keane being used as a makeweight who Spurs value at 11million, so this would mean that Tottenham only pay 9million cash for Young.

Although its thought there may be a slight issue with Young's 75grand a week wage demands as Spurs are unlikey to want to break there own 65grand a week wage cap.(10)(31)

Heard from a mate of mine who has a few contacts at O/T. He said not many people know anything about the possible ins and outs, however as far as he's aware Fergie knows the fans want a signing and the players like to see a new player brought in also. He has basically advised one player will be brought in. This is all he knows. . . .
Now based on this if the rumours are true and it is Ozil then great cos he's a good prospect.
If the rumours are not true and Ozil will go elsewhere then personally i'm excited about who it will be. I know one thing tho it won't be a mediocre player who will sit on the bench!

I can't see Ireland joining Newcastle from City as Mike Ashley has set up a wage cap for new signings around the £30,000 mark. Ireland will probably be on significantly more than that.

Ben Arfa was set to join, everything agreed with regards to the loan, however Marseille are trying desperately to start a bidding war. Arfa was quoted as saying he didn't want to join Rubin Kazan or Benfica so his move to Newcastle is still on.

Nile Ranger going out to Blackpool on a season long loan. Good news for the lad.

Apparently Hughton is interested in Michael Mancienne on a loan from Chelsea.

Marseille to offer Sevilla 15 million for Luis Fabiano they are willing to go up to 5 million a–year in wages to secure his signature. This comes with Fabiano only having a year to run on his current contract.

It seems unlikely the Mesut Ozil will be moving anywhere till at least January. Whe he does it will probably be to Man Utd or Chelsea. 15 million should clinch it, but if either clubs want him sooner they will have to act before the Champions League tie against Sampdoria on the 18th of August.

Liverpool are close to the signing of Poulsen for 6 million, Mascherano will more than likely leave providing Inter recieve the 30 million from the Ballotelli sale.

Arsenal are keen on signing 2 Centre–halves and a Goalkeeper. Wenger wants one starting player and enquired about Subotic but Dortmund wanted 20 million as a result he has turned his attentions to Tasci who appears to be following Khedira on his way out after Stutgart signed Degan and made the loan of Bayern's Georg Neidermier permanant. The fee is expected to be around 10–12 million. Wenger is also interested in Emir Spahic and Mamadou Sakho as the 5th CB and is willing to pay 8 million. On the Goalkeeping front, Schwarzer has reportedly handed in a transfer request as interest for Shay Given grows. . who becomes Arsenal's No. 1? no–one knows

As for Chelsea they want David Luiz to replace Carvalho but will have to pay in excess of 25 million to add another Brazilan.(36)(11)

I have a friend who works with te Fulham first team, and apparently Paul Konchesky is wanted by Roy Hodgson at Liverpool as first choice left back– the FFC board have refused 2 bids already, but during the pre season tour to Sweden, Konchesky stated his desire to move to Liverpool. He is not being disruptive to the team or kicking up a stink a la Jimmy Bullard, but he has stated his wishes for the bid to be accepted.

Also expect Ray Lewington to be moving sooner rather than later–he is still officially 'first team coach' but his duties have been demoted to literally moving cones around and setting up the sessions, Eddie Niedzwiecki is taking the actual sessions and Ray feels extremly demoted–apparently a managers job in the lower leagues is on the cards.(16)(9)

What's your source mate? Interesting one this, as normally it would sound like complete rubbish, but the fact that Robinson's good mate Lee Trundle has joined them may lend this some credence.

Also heard that the whittingham deal is a smoke screen to try and get chopra out of cardiff to join blackpool in the prem. . no idea how that one works. heard anything Mr.Editor? any names? becuase to be honest im sick of hearing about pratley and whitts.


a nervious red {editor's note – I don't have any names to be honest, just heard people moaning about dealing with your panel.}(12)(29)

If Ozil does not sign, expect SAF to make a bid for Ganso, the AM from Brazil. Man City's first refusal expired and United could make a move. If Ozil does sign, Ganso could be moved for and then loaned back to Brazil for another year until Scholes and Giggs move on and SAF has had a better chance to decide on Anderson, Carrick, Gibson, etc(25)(16)

In reguards to this, Once Pompey have sold Boateng to either Newcastle or a team in Italy. they will not be selling anyone else, Also Wba have not made any bid, I can also tell you clubs have enquired with bids of up to £2.5m. Pompey are struggleing to put a first 11 out and with boateng being left out due to his expected exit they won't want to sell anyone else plus Wilson commited himself to the club last week,

PS. West brom will continue their club tradition and be relegated this time next year, along with Wolves and Blackpool. Class striker?. Wba won't sign a single class player and never will. FACT

10 Aug 2010 20:55:42
West brom have made a 1.4 million offer for marc wilson from portsmouth good buy can play in defence or midfield.portsmouth are interested in luke moore wba.lets hope it happens. any news on west brom buying a class foward who can score in prem to help keep them stay up boing boing. rtb(9)(31)

To the person who wrote;

Stephen ireland spotted outside the club shop at sjp also ben arfa spotted at training ground yesterday.

person who wrote this.

A radio station said Ireland was seen outside SJP early in the morning, he didn't hold talks with villa untill late afternoon, he could easily of gone to Villa, second off his representives could of spoken to villa and not the player himself, as for Ben arfa, he was seen at newcastles training ground a few days ago before heading back to france for the opening game of the season, so try getting your facts right.

Thats odd cause check SSN and you will find that he is in talks with aston villa also ben arfa is playing for france on wednesday so newcastle representatives more likely to fly to france.

Ozil will NOT be signing for Man utd or Arsenal

I've been told by a reliable source that the only clubs who want him are actually Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona. Not arsenal or Man utd so relax

Scharwzer of Fulham will sign for arsenal as he handed in a transfer request and also Milner to City is imminent.

Liverpool will sign poulsen and Mascherano will go to barcelona(25)(42)

 

 11 Aug 2010 05:02:32
In reply to this, I ment K.P.Boateng. Sorry for the confusion, But yes it is Kevin Prince Boateng who has said to be coming to Newcastle in some kind of deal, I've heard of several sites and off a few friends up near portsmouth that it is the deal below but we'll find out soon enough,
10 Aug 2010 21:51:30
Regarding the below, who's K.V.Boateng?

Kevin Vince Boateng? A good mate of Ken Aguero I've heard!


"10 Aug 2010 18:39:57
Nufc in:
S.Ireland: loan/£5.5m
K.V.Boateng: £4m+ Forster loan + R.Taylor loan
H.Ben Arfa: Loan
E.Lavezzi: £5m

Out:
Forster, R.taylor portsmouth
Xisco:£2m racing santander
A.Smith: £2m Rangers
Ranger: Blackpool loan

Ben Arfa will sign by thursday and Newcastle will have first option on a £6.3m move next summer which Hughton is keen to take up if ben arfa impresses, Secondly, K.V.Boateng, Hughton is a big fan and with Pompey needing players Newcastles offer of Forster and R.Taylor is thought to be accepted, Steven Ireland has been seen outside SJP club shop today with 2 men in black suits thought to be his agent and representive it is thought he will sign for Newcastle on loan with a view to a £5.5m deal next summer also Newcastle have yet to name their captain due to the signing of Ireland who would take Nolan out of the team, Nolan could possibley switch to Blackburn, Lavezzi wants a crack at the prem and Hughton wants a strong striker and he fits the bill. Hughton will also try to get Sturridge on loan, and will go after a full back in Jan

These are facts although the Ireland deal is a rumour which seemed dead a few weeks ago but its now starting to pick up again with several people claiming to have seen him. Take this how you want. but it seems strange that Hughton hasn't yet named a captain."(15)(30)

 

 11 Aug 2010 00:38:29
Today i have seen alot of posts on this site saying a similar thing. . Ozil to sign by the end of the week. Do you have any info on this ed? are there a few people in the know or are they just claiming to know by peicing together what is printed in the papers? Anything further on the subject? {editor's note – I can't add anything further, I don't believe him to be close to signing for anyone just yet, but that is an opinion because I haven't heard a thing about it.}(6)(20)

Reading have accepted an offer of £700,000 (including bonuses) from Southampton for Winger Michail Antonio.

Craig Bellamy is going to be left out of city 25, then end up at fulham on loan with permanent deal likely in january. .

Rangers are close to signing Portmouth's Tommy Smith after agreeing a £1.5 million fee with the club. He will arive at Ibrox for talks tomorrow and Rangers are hoping to have him in time for their SPL clash with Kilmarnock on Saturday ;)(30)(21)

 

 11 Aug 2010 01:20:12
To all those who keep saying "McFadden has stated he would never play for either of the old firm or move back to the SPL" please stop talking crap. Before Birmingham shelled out the money for him at the last minute he was on his way back up to Parkhead on loan. Also, he's a Celtic fan and his family live in Glasgow so why wouldn't he want to spend the remainder of his career at his boyhood heroes? Especially now that he's in the final year of his contract and B'ham will be looking to cash in before he goes for free. .

With regard to the Goalkeeping situation, the obvious solution should be to bring back David Marshall in exchange for Loovens.

And if Lennon doesn't bring a quality left back in before the close of the window he should be fired on the spot. We haven't had a decent LB since Tom Boyd! Are they really that rare a species?!?

Aiden mcgeady is having a medical in frankfurt ahead of his proposed move to spartak which my sources have told me will be completed by the end of the week. neil lennon is waiting on the green light from that deal as liam lawrence will be signed along with julian speroni from crystal palace and he is going to make an offer for young portsmouth defender marc wilson believed to be in the region of 3 mill.(14)(27)

 

 11 Aug 2010 01:31:11
AC Milan are willing to take a gamble on young Leeds United striker Mike Grella.

Despite showing glimpses of great quality, the Italian–American has not been able to settle at Leeds and with Silvio Berlusconi in attendance for Leeds' Carling Cup fixture against Lincoln last night it does seem it won't be long before the Italian giants make their move.

A nominal fee is likely to be agreed for a permanent transfer.(6)(40)

 

 11 Aug 2010 10:14:38
A twist in the Hatem Ben Arfa saga. It seems that Marseille have temporarily held up the completion of the move to Newcastle whilst discussions are held with Werder Bremen over Ben Arfa as a possible replacement for Mesut Oezil. Oezil appears to be on his way to Barcelona – regardless of any denials being made.

Sharkey.

Apparently leeds approached tranmere with regards to ian tomas–moore which tranmere declined, resulting in thomas–moore handing in a transfer request. Hopefully this is not true with the big name signings rumoured but with little spending at leeds, looks likely.(13)(41)

Ricardo Carvalho has signed for Real Madrid, Chelsea will look to sign Subotic for £15–18 million.Arsenal have been alerted by Shay Given may quit if not given number 1 spot, Arsenal will bid £6–8 million.Arsenal are hotly pursuing a defender, "Tasci, Mexes, Zapata, Spahic, Sakho, Subotic have been mentioned Arsene wants an commanding defender Subotic is the best bet as we offer champions league football but is out of our price range.Ashley Young to sign for Spuds next week for a fee of £18–20 million.Liverpool will finalise deal for Poulsen for £6–8 million.Man Utd fans claim Ozil Will sign for them, they have reason to be optimistic as Barca claims are not true, Whoever offers in excess of £15 million he will be their player.I really hope Arsene grows some balls and brings him to Emirates, he would bring balance, creativity and technical quality to Arsenal and would be ideal replacement for Cesc when he leaves for Barcelona.
Given – £8 million Arsenal
Tasci – £10 million Arsenal
Ashley Young – £18 million Spurs"


My source still tells me that it will be Subotic as CB for Arsenal. The deal is complicated due to Borrusia Dortmund's demands, and Arsenal are desperately trying to get them to drop their price. Subotic wants the move. . . he has been to the training ground, but Dortmund feel that Arsenal's valuation of Subotic may be too low. . . .they may be right.(18)(15)

David Gill was heard talking on the phone to Reza Fazeli today. My source, who got the Owen story and Vidic contract story before every one else told me that they were discussing a place to meet up.

Reza Fazeli is Ozils agent, He has also been pictured coming out of Manchester airport, which will no doubt be in the papers tomorrow morning.

If the deal goes ahead, Ozil will join Manchester United on Friday for a fee around £15million.(155)(113)
