Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
David Platt seen in Norwich!Heart's Craig Gordon to Arsenal for around 3mil in the summer.
Young Austrian Winger from Sturm Graz in January to Rangers. And expect more transfers in and out of PLG's squad.Joey Barton to Newcastle in the summer £6.8To the daft canarie fan who said that Curbishley will be the new manager tomorrow need to open the eyes and ears, he publicly ruled himself out of the job earlier on in the week, norwich arnt a big enough club. Ranieri or Curbs to be next Leeds manager ! COME ON YOU MIGHTY WHITES !Newcastle will look at Chelsea's Diarra in January, possible on loan at first. With the stories of Emre being unsettled and his future uncertain, this would release Parker from his more defensive role whilst giving Duff more creative space.Newcastle are gonna have to spread big on defense and about time too. Thankfully our joke defense will dispand due to several reasons. Bramble to be sold, Norwich or Charlton a possible destination, Craig Mooore retiring at the end of the season. With Baba and Carr being well past their sell by date and hopefully ONLY kept as back up. A complete restructure is needed and it will start in January. GR will not risk too much on players outside of the Prem. Bridge for around 6mil, no Lucas Neil with Upson or Gardener coming into the CH positions with a possible move for Frankfurts Aleksander Vasoski coming in January if he fairs well against Newcastle in the Cup.
Taylor, Ramage and Huntington to play a big part hopefully playing in their prefered positions and not at full backs. But this is certainly not enough to challenge for anything without major addistions.With Charlton sitting proud at the bottom of the league Newcastle will return to their first choice striker Marcus Bent in January. Klose is now well out of reach. With Milner going to Villa look out for Readings Sidewell coming to SJP.
Carr - Taylor - Upson - Bridge

Arsenal's Top Rumors.
Remeber, these are rumors!
Reo-cocker and Abidal
Baptista, robinho, Sahin,ale, Marcelanho
Utari or Gordon Gago
Trasfer that might happen:Ribery robinhoHull city to make offer to secure man city defender danny mills, also expect hull to sign peter whittingham, and also a loan offer for ben thatcherThis website is quickly becoming a joke. To the wally who says Ryan Smith will return to Arsenal and become captain: please stop posting your 'rumours'. I couldn't help but laugh when I read that. Ryan, as I know him because I played football with him for years over Highbury Fields near the old Arsenal stadium, won't return to the Gunners any time soon. He only joined Derby a couple of months ago and he plays regular football there, but when he was at Arsenal he got a couple of substitute appearances in the Carling Cup. He never sniffed the first team for Premiership, FA cup or Champions League games. He knows that if Arsene Wenger was to throw money out at a player he flogged on the cheap no more than eight weeks ago, he'd go straight back into the youths and reserves. As far as him becoming captain, save it. Thierry Henry is Arsenal's captain for at least four more years and, dread the day, he leaves it'll go to another high profile, dedicated Arsenal player. Think about what you're writing.Sir Alex Ferguson could be ready for a bit of a reshuffle of his playing staff in January. Defenders Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic, both bought last January, are likely to be shipped out once 2007 is upon us, and Fergie could line up Tottenham defender Michael Dawson as one of the replacements. Dawson has done well since joining Spurs from Nottingham Forest almost 2 years ago, and Manchester United have clearly taken note of his form. Winger Kieran Richardson will move to Watford on a permanent deal in January as he is fed up with such a small role at Old Trafford. John O'Shea will be given a much more important role, filling in more often all over defence and in the centre of midfield. Owen Hargreaves could move to Manchester on loan with the view of a permanent deal
in the summer. United tried to sign the England midfielder from Bayern Munich in the summer just gone, but Bayern refused to let him go and he then picked up a bad injury which could change Bayern's thinking. Also, as much as it pains me to say it, apparently Manchester United are likely to agree a pre-contract deal with Atletico Madrid in January which will see Fernando Torres join the Red Devils next summer.Leicester City: Matty Fryatt is heading to a new club in January after a supposed 'injury' has lead to Rob Kelly searching for a replacement. Carl Asaba seems a likely replacement after spending the last few weeks on trial at the club.
Also, Milan Mandaric is almost certain to make a bid to buy the club in January.
>>>I'm a man u fan and i can tell you most of the rumours about our club an spending sprees is rubbish. in the jan/summer we will get owen h (if bayern want to sell) and hopefully torres - hopefully because there is no such thing as a done deal so its up to the boy where he wants to play and i'm sure there's alot of interest. erikssen and mourinho are not candidates for the man u job - there own history rules them both out, an they won't be accepted by the fans. more likely are lippi, sparky, paul le guen. when fergie retires - most probably at the end of next seasonTo the guy dat sed arsene wenger would sign scott carson carson will stay a t liverpool to provid eback up for reina!
liverpool in Liverpool out
Mista £6m Dudek £3.1
Alves £7.2m Kirkland £1m
and a new talent named Fernando genro Rafa rates him highly he will sign for £17mNews from celtic for the Villa
Forget the Maloney and McGeady rumours,
Maloney will sign new deal this month that's near done deal,what you will get in January is Neil Lennon and Bobo Balde for combined fee of £4m
Its getting a bit like Celtic Villa down there isn't it?I have heard one new rumour which is almost a certaren'ty for Man Utd. SAF has been monitoring the progress of Johnny Heitinga of Ajax. Hes now regarded as first choice right back for Holland and is available for a relatively cheap £6million. He will play second fiddle to Neville for a year or so, but then will be first choice for United.
Nani will also be signed, but may cost as much as £10million due to the interest of other clubs such as Milan, Chelsea, Barca etc. However, he will go to United as he has seen how the United fans have backed up his compatriat Ronaldo over the last few months.GOOONERNEWS As i have said all along Franck Ribery will be an Arsenal player either in January or next summer?Marseille have denied that there is a deal but that is only a smokescreen to stop their fans from rioting!The fee is £17.5million.It is also widely rumoured that Arsenal have secured the signing of Fluminense starlet Marcelo and a £10.5million bid is in the pipeline for Anderson of Porto?Preliminary talks were held when Arsenal played Porto in the champs league.It now seems likely that AW see's Craig Gordon(hearts)as Jens Lehmann's long term replacement?Rafa benitez will sign david villa or defoe in january , possibly letting fowler go to some other club and may be also luis garcia.NUFC will spend big in Jan to increase value of club for the takeover. Klosse £5m depending on where Bremen are in CL, Trezguet £9m, Ledley King £20m, SWP £8m and Bridge £5m. Also expect to see Beckham at SJP either on loan or for £10m.NUFC in Jan will sign Neill for £2m to partner Moore, Viduka for £2m will make it 3 Aussies. Bridge for £3.5m which would have been done earlier but for the Cole/Gallas saga. Milner will go to Villa for £5m as long as Dyer has proved fitness. Finally Trezeguet will come for £8m, and Klosse will agree a pre-contract for next summer.January Transfers For Villa
MON will look to bring at least two strikers before the next season begins including one in Jan, which will be either defoe or Saviola.
Milner will be back and possibly Rommedahl if he wants to stay in england, Dunn from BC and Sidwell from reading to sure up the midfield.United to sign oh, in the summer united will sign nani because of the ronaldo and carlos q relationship. united won't sign manuel fernandes because benfica won't sell him and we don't need him. Mascherano is an 80% but tevez is a no go because we all know in the summer dat torres will sign so only way we will but tevez is rooney falls in a swimming pool and drowns, saha breaks every bone in his body except is big toe and smith and 20LEgend are sold.
United for life :p
. :: >12< ::. From the same chap (club insider) who tipped me off about the Hartson deal has told me some shocking news. sorry boys but there is a chance that Glenn Hoddle could be our next manager, if our top 3 can't be secured (Jones, Mcleish, Tilson).Gareth Bale is signing for Arsenal so Manchester United fans stop linking yourself with him. Every time Arsenal want someone you decide that you would like to link him with your club. You will sign Hargreeves and no Torres no Adriano as you are not the club you were. You also have no money although you may sign Defo but no one else.I am a MAN UTD fan, and have to admit there are some hilarious rumours here! But i have some rumours,(and this is a rumour page and may not be true) and here they are. SAF is still not budging and don't want to retire, but David Gill has been talking with him and they have decided with the Glazers that MARCELLO LIPPI will take over from SAF. Don't know when, but the chances are soon and high,as he is studying english,(may not have absouloutly nothing to do with anything,but learning a new language does give it away abit!). As for players,I didnt really believe that rumour of the down-payment to TORRES,but i have read on a website that he admitted that UTD and Athletico have been in talks,but maybe no agreements have been made! Also,NANI from Sporting Lisbon may sign in JAN as Sporting and UTD have a "feeder" agreement with each other, and that NANI wants to move at the same age and follow Cristiano's Steps! Owen Hargreaves will eventually end up moving,as he has been ridiculed by his fellow Bayern players. But expect him probably in the Summer,and finally the striker situation will be that saha will be the main striker alongside Rooney,but another young striker will be brought in,maybe castillo,the paraguayen,or david souza from Calgairi! Also,Nuri Sahin was about to join UTD in the summer,but the move collapsed because of Dortmunds time-wasting and letti
ng the negotiations to drag,so don't be suprised to see him in Jan! p.s- UTD aren't the biggest spending club anymore,but they do have money. not £90m as someone sed but atleast £30m and maybe more plus players sold and profit made. Glazers are business people and know how to invest and make profit out of things,so don't really doubt there intelligence,even though they may not seem it,but we are still the 2nd richest club in the world. ! :DEverton will sign nigerian foward john utaka from rennes for 4.5million out the door will be james beattie to middlesbrough andy van der meyde to ajax or torinoPeople please get real Torres is spanish the only team he is going to go to in the prem is liverpool.
Manu will sign hargreaves and jenas and might place a cheeky bid for lennon.
Arsene w is still pondering over Baptista as he doesn't know weather he is going to be a big enough hit to keep merida out of the team.Newcastle will sell Milner to Villa for 2million. Luque will also return to Spain for 2.5millon with Deportivo keen on bringing him back. The only player coming in in Jan is Alan McGregor from Rangers for 600k.Major january transfers sunderland manager keene will go all out to persuade teddy sherringham to be his focal point up front, also has intentions of persuading can'tona to join his coaching staff, other mackem news big jan sighning of walcott on loan freddy adu on loan and perminant sighning of nicky butt for 1.5million. good times ahead for black cats. Apparently benitez has made contingency plans should bellamys temperament get the better of him.he will be off to aston villa, to make way for young south american striker gonzalo higuin,he and oneil have a "gentlemens agreement"
