Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Newcastle are still keeping a look at Darren Bent but if they are to by him it will be a very late transfer as they want to see how he recorvers from his knee injury. Klose is an option as he was about to sign for Newcastle in the summer but Werder Bremem canceled the deal at the last minute because they failed to get the striker they were looking at.Cassano and Bridge are definites both coming on loan and both with the option of buying for cut down costs because of our relationships with both clubs. Also expect to see EITHER Silveste or Yobo. This all comes from a source very high up at Newcastle United

Manchester United are currently looking at osasuna's starlet Raul Garcia as owen hargreaves's too expensive.
Chelsea are preparing a bid for Adriano, with premiership flop Andriy Shevchenko moving to Inter as part of the deal.

Ian Holloway is also set to sign defender and fellow Hungarian KRISZTIAN TIMAR from Ferencvaros for around £200k. The deal should go through by the end of the week.

Izale McLeod (MK Dons) £400k + Samba on Loan

Lucas Neil will not be coming to LFC until the summer - Blackburn are aware there are a lot of clubs interested, and are therefore asking too much for a playing who is out of contract in the summer - But Neil has set his heart on coming to the reds, so will decline the offer to go elsewhere and move for free.
Rafa has £15m to spend in January, but do not expect any big names - Instead, expect the arrival of Daniele Padelli from Sampdoria (£2m rated goalkeeper) as backup to Reina, plus a young 20 yr old argentinian Seb Leto from Lanus (£2m midfielder). Mascharano from West Ham is also a possability, for around £5.5m, but the fee's being asked for the likes of Bale and Young, have put Rafa off pursuing them further.
Leaving the club - Dudek £1m - Zenden - £750k, plus a few of the younger lads will be sent out on loan.
Luton had had a bid accepted for Crewe striker Luke Varney prior to his hat-trick. Luton are looking at him as a replacement for the Birmingham bound Rowan Vine.
My brother is on West Ham's youth books and he saw danny murphy being shown round upton park, totally out of the blue but a great player nonetheless will happen at the end of jan!
Sheffield United Rumours
looks like the blades have all but signed Sunderland striker Jon Stead for a cheap 1.1 million. he is on loan at Derby now but looks set for a move just up the road.don't be surprised if Mr Warnock goes all out for Greg Halford at colchester now with a bid up to 2.75 million. this added to the Chris lucketti going to hull for 400.000 and maybe a deal can be done with Charlton to bring in Andy Ried plus cash and Nick montgomery going the other way. Ohhh and last of all Billy (the 100% blade) Sharp will be back at bramall lane before the end of January which will leave it open for steve kabba to go back down south ( watford, palace, QPR, Luton all in with a shout)
Chris Brown from Sunderland to Norwich almost definately
Sydney Govou is reportledly in talks with several premiership clubs about a possible January move from Lyon.
Klose to blackburn 4 7 million plus nelsen in a move so they can get curtis davies in from wba
Manchester United are ready to bid for young Brazilian wonderkid Alexandre Pato, with clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea also keeping tabs on the starlet.
My cousin works in a hotel near the walkers stadium and steve mcmanaman spent a night there at the weekend possibly in talks over a move to leicester city
As a financial officer for leeds United fc I have recently been placed on a business aquisitions team in charge of backroom staff. I have been told that dennis wise is looking for new midfield and striking coaches with ian woan and tony yeboah heading his list of preferred staff.
To the person who said Metin Aliu is the next big thing in Australia, what planet are you on? I live in Sydney and there is no player in Australia by that name playing football. There is a young man playing Aussie Rules by that name for Hawthorn, but I highly doubt Liverpool are scouting the aussie rules ranks!
I can also tell you all the talk about aussie Lucas Neill is just that. He is not going anywhere until the end of the season. And when he does he will be going to Barcelona. My friend spent the Christmas break teaching him Spanish and Catalunyan in Sydney.
I've heard that darren bent is definately going to Spurs which pushes either Jermaine Defoe or Robbie Keane out. The favourite would be Robbie Keane as a lot of clubs would love him at their club but Defoe is a very simlar player to darren bent so definitely might be going to Chelsea but a possibility is Wolves loaning robbie keane untill the end of the season. This is completely true as Mick McCarthy worked with keano in the Ireland team at the world cup! and with darren bent going to Spurs, Wolves fans are going to be happy with keane going to them
Freddy Adu will start a trial period at aston Villa on thursday.
Canaries Transfer Rumours
After the capture of Chris Brown from sunderand and David Marshall from Celtic Norwich are hot on the heels of former Man Utd star David Bellion, also lined up are Yohan Demont from lens and Younes Kaboul from Auxerre. Also expect a bid for tyrone mears from West Ham and martin taylor of brum.
trust me city fans.
David Moyes is top of the SFA list to succeed Walter Smith.
Newcastle will loan K. Richardson from United.
Rommedahl will not sign for FC Copenhagen. Because they think Silberbauer is much better.
Jon Dahl Tomasson to Feyenoord.
Beckham will sign for Los Angeles in the summer.
Hearts julien brellier is a target for Wigan Athletic.
The Plymouth rumours in the last couple of days have been investigated very well. Particularly the ones involving them signing Nathan Tyson from Wycombe (even though he has been a Nottingham Forest player for over a year) and De La Cruz from Villa (This is the the same De La Cruz that played for Reading against Burnley and has been a Royals player all season) . Anyway, expect to see Bobby Zamora in a Royals shirt before the close of the transfer window - this should be the final pice of the puzzle that makes Sidwell sign a new deal as he is Zamorras best mate.
Newcastle United Rumours
The glorious black and whites will sign Chris Brown from Sunderland as an emergancy back up. With injuries to Martins and Owen and Albert Luque set to leave, Roeder is short of cover up front. Roeder will also attempt to lure Micheal Chopra back to StJames' with a £4m offer.

Leicester city have struck a deal with bristol city for 6 foot 8 enoch showunmi for £150, 000 plus rab douglas this info is to be released at a press conference at a later date
Randy Learner has got dismayed at Villa's slump and I have heard that the reason the players are not responding is that O'Neil isn't happy, don't know why but he is not happy and may leave soon. But in the meantime I have heard that £50m will be made available for January and Summer and these are the deals being put together. Queresma, SWP, Luis 'Maddog' Fabiano, Cavengi, Sissoko (Mascherano) , Chivu, Wes Brown and Gareth Bale. Out will go
Angel (thanks for the memories)
Baros (good riddance)
Hendrie (over rated)
Samuel (lost it)
Berger (past it)
Djemba Twins (never had it)
Walter has already spoke to Barry Ferguson about his doubts as a Rangers player. He is definately not for sale at any price. I have information that the rift between Ferguson and Le Guen was blown way out of proportion. The only thing Le Guen didn't like was Ferguson shouting at the players, but sometimes he couldn't hold back his nature. And the "undermining" that Ferguson was doing was only suggesting to Le Guen that Steven Pressley was a free transfer and that he should take a look at him. So would the "Anti-Barry Ferguson" mob stop making suggestions about the clubs best player and a player that only wants what is best for Rangers. Either Celtic fans on the wind up, or so-called Rangers fans who clearly do not have a clue what supporting Glasgow Rangers really means.
Barnsley to sign Bury midfielder DWayne Mattis for an initial fee of £50.000 plus another £25.000 when Barnsley secure their Championship status along with a 20% sell on clause.
Working in Liverpool I see a lot that goes on and around so some transfer rumours for you!
here we go:
David Villa will not be coming, in fact Rafa will not be signing a striker at all, we are waiting until the summer when he has a chance to sign David Trezeguet from Juventus.
I've heard that the baggies are to sign Wolves goalie Matt Murray for £2M
I have it on good authority that: -
1/ Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson will bin agent Willie McKay, then sensationally join hearts for a combined fee of £2.9m
2/ When Smith takes over at Rangers, he will sign Whittaker, Murphy and Fletcher from Hibs
3/ New Scotland boss will be David Moyes which will allow John Collins to take the reigns at Everton.
4/ Celtic will sign Milan Baros
5/ Hearts will sign Mario Volz and V.Hleb (brother of Arsenal's Alexander)
These are all true, as i have a big contact who specialises in the scottish game
Arsenal FC aw will only make 2 signings in jan these will b nrc in part exchance for freedie and lauren also we will complete the signing of gordon which means almunia could well leave other jan transfers are smertin to west ham alongside demerit from watford, villa will complete the signingof kevin doyle and barry ferguson.
Newcastle United will trade albert luque to PSV for defender michael ball, also Waynes bridge to join on loan with an option to buy in the summer.

matty upson in for 5 mill
Reo Coker out to the arse
Freddie in his place
anton to pool (maybe warnock in swap??)

Liverpool transfers jan
Stilian Petrov to move back to Celtic in January transfer window - not happy at playing out of position and has told O'Neil he and his wife have not settled. As for the dark side of Glasgow, Barry Ferguson will not leave, but Paul Hartley will come in and be appointed new club captain.
Whilst all the talk about Villa transfers revolve around SWP, Keane, Young, Bent etc etc, Martin O'Neill has done an excellent bit of business in signing Rangers wide man Chris Burke. Burke has signed a pre-contract agreement with AVFC and will join in June. FACT
Manchester United will make a shock signing on friday of Athletico Madrid stiker Mista for £5.5 million as SAF sees the potential.
Paul Hartley and Craig Gordon will both leave Hearts this week after another run-in with owner Vladimir Romanov. Romanov wanted both players to go on loan to his other team, Kaunas, but neither was interested. Hartley will most-likely go to Glasgow with Gordon off down South.
MUFC to sign Bale and Hargreaves. Bale will stay with Soton for 18 months. Trust me, my uncle is working for Southamtpn.
In the Summer United will sing Torres, J. Cole, McGeady and Micah Richards.
They will sell Silvestre, Richardson, Eagles and some other youngsters, who will not make it at Old Trafford.
United will win the treble this season, and the quadraple next season.
Great bit of humour from the guy who suggested that Rangers wouldn't re-sign flops. What about Walter Smith? Is this not the same guy who threw away Rangers' chance to 10 in a row against an average Celtic side? Anyway, let's get real about who Rangers will sign - and how much we can recoup from the duds in the squad. Scott Brown will be the most expensive player Rangers buy for the next 2 years, but other signings are likely to come in the shape of cheap promising youngsters. We really need to build for the future and accept that it will 2 years before we have the squad or finances to compete with Celtic. Walter's motivational skills don't work for a whole league season, and he'll be replaced as soon as Rangers can afford somebody up to the job.
I heard last night that Reading are after Bobby Zamora. He was best man at Sidwells wedding and there wives are best friends. Coppell wants Sidwell to stay and this may be the answer to keep him there. Plus Zamora is wasted at West Ham!
