Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Scotty Parker will be leaving Newcastle this Summer with Arsenal the likely destination. My sources tell me that he feels he cannot develop his full potential at a low aspiration outfit, and seeks to compete consistantly at a higher level. Cant really blame him I suppose as Newcastle will never achieve any better than mid table obscurity, though they will get Gilberto + cash for Parker.
I can guarentee that Strachen will be forced out the door at Celtic in the Summer. Expect to see Tommy Burns take over. After he clears out high paid under acheivers at the club Paul Scholes and Robbie Keane will be arriving.
Here, here Nosel. You have managed to nail the transfer speculation regarding Newcastle to a 'T'! Those are the rumours coming out of Newcastle FC at the minute, well baring one small mistake. Obi martens will not be leaving the club you person, but the one and only Micky O will be on his way at the end of the season to either Spurs, Liverpool or Arsenal! Yep, Micky O is off for approx £14m and that money will be used to part fund deals for Eider Gudjohnson and Bastian Schweinsteiger. I will keep you all posted on any further developments and rumours, over and out, roger roger. Derkenstein 3D

Plymouth Argyle. I can confirm today that PAFC is for sale. I asked Paul Stapleton (PAFC Chairman) after the Leicester game what the situation was and he said that PAFc was indeed for sale but would only sell to someone or a group of people with interest in making PAFC a successful Prem club. He said that there are a number of interested parties and all should be revealed in the next month. for further details.
For all those who say WGS will be on his way at the end of the seaseon BUNKUM! Peter Lawell was interviewed on Sat and said Team 3 is well on the way to being put together. Prepare for some truly amazing signings - Celts in talks with 2 major European stars coming to join in the Summer haven't had their names confirmed but believed to be Juan Roman Riquelme and Roy Makaay, talks are also at an advanced stage for Sidwell on a Bosman and a deal has already been thrashed out for Scott Brown of Hibs for around £3 million or £ + players.
Alsolook out for 3 or 4 squad players arriving (Kadlec, Appiah, Joseph and Whittikar of Hibs) to supplement the 2 "Blue Chip" signings, 6 players will deffo go at the end of the season -
Balde, Miller, Beattie, Zurawski, Lennon and Graveson.
The club will also listen to offers for Boruc (£5mil +)&Nakamura (£6 mil+) .
Look for Riordon to knuckle down as it is off - field problems that are holding him back also Celtic in talks with Dortmund over 2 players - Metzelder and Frei but there is stiff compo for Metzelder.
These are just some of the amazing going ons happening at Parkhead at the minute, plenty of other targets should the named ones fall through!
Will be back with more when I get them.
Rumours from north of the border
First the obvious, expect Scott Brown and Darren Fletcher to be subjects of a tug-of-war between Rangers and Celtic. Also expect Lee McCulloch, Steven Naismith and perhaps Stephen Fletcher all to move to Ibrox.
It'll be bye-bye to Svensson, Gavin Rae, N'daiye, Buffel, Klos, Sionko and Ponroy staying are Sebo and Papac after some decent performances.
More interestingly tho, Rangers are trying to tie up a deal for Adrian Leijer of Australian champs Melbourne Victory - the highly rated 22 year old has been in outstanding form for club and Ozzie under 23's.
Mark Reynolds will sign for Rangers this Summer from Motherwell. with dado prso leaving and also stefan klos. Scott Brown will sign a 4 year deal

Anyone who is saying that Scott Brown is going anywhere other than Rangers is talking rubbish. He's a huge Rangers fan and so are his family. The deal was done in January when kevin tomson (brown's best mate) was signed to the gers. As part of the deal Brown was to remain at Hibs till the Summer to aid their league cup run. which they won! It's a done deal! - Scottiedog
Leicester City have put Teddy Sheringham at the top of their wish list in the Summer and also hope to lure Jerzy Dudek to the Walkers Stadium.
To the guy who thinks parkin will be at Luton next season think again, he was loaned to stoke, with a view to a permenent move in the Summer for around 500k. also if Stoke don't get promoted expect Lee Hendrie to move on, with Sheffield United leading the race for his signature along with Coventry, Dowie wants to strenthen his midfield, for a promoton chasing team next season.
Arsene Wenger will add to the squad to have any hope of challenging for the title first Tim Cahill will be brought in for 13m, also expect Wenger to rescue Duff from newcaslte in a straight swap for sendeoros, the big one eto'o he will join for 25m, the only ones to leave are Flamini Senderos
Everton's Summer transfers

Nosel here with the latest from SJP. A lot of my predictions and rumours lately have been coming true, finalised at the weekend by my prediction of Pompy to beat Man U! So listen up, and watch these words happen fo' real in the summatym.
The Aussie cripple, Moore, has been impressing Roeder a lot with his last few performances in the black and white, and Roeder may attempt the offer him a new one year deal to stay on at SJP as back up. With Newcastle planning wholesale changes at the back next season, it makes sense to keep a few of the current squad incase any signing don't work out. Bramble is deffo off to Pompy and Ipswich, as I've said numerous times. Fulham won't pursue him now that 'Cookie' Chris Coleman has received his pink slip from the 'Arrods fat cat.
I've heard strong talk of interest in Parker from Everton, and Villa, but this may be resisted by the player himself! Barton is looking a very likely possibility and Emre is likely to leave, probably to Brian Munich.
Up front, one more forward will be signed if no one leave, or 2 if a good offer for Martins comes in. This is most likely to be Ashton.
And Sunderland are hot on the heels of the solid too defender Peter Rampage, and N'Zogbia.
Outside of the toon, I've heard that the smoggies are after Aliadiere with Viduka set to leave (he's unimpressed with the way the Boro have messed around with a new deal), and one other sticker. Expect a bold more for Nugent.
Peace out. - Nosel
Arsenal Team Next Season.
Igor Akinfeev, Daniel Alves, Leighton Baines, William Gallas, Kolo Toure, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Franck Ribery, Cesc Fabregas, Jean Makoun, Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto'o.
Outs - EmManuel Eboue, Phillippe Senderos, Matthieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky, Gilberto Silva, EmManuel Adebayor, Jeremie Aliadiere and some yougsters will be loaned out to championship clubs, E. g. Gilles Sunu, Carlos Vela, Francisco Merida, Peggy Lokando.
-CELTIC WORLD- I saw Robbie Keane in Kings Cross While I was in London last week, and thought I may as well ask him if his is coming to Celtic, he said, "Sorry, but no chance. I'm not going anywhere. "
John Sutton will sign for Kilmarnock on a free transfer.
Jamie Langfield will sign for Rangers for 500k
this is from a reliable source Warren Beveridge who works at pitrodrie russel anderson will sign for Aston Villa ()
Aston Villa will shock all Villa fans this Summer when they will be signing E. Heskey for 3.5mil
they will also sign Sidwell free, and giles Barnes 5mil
West Ham 'Rumours'
Dean Ashton will not be playing for anyone other than West Ham next season - Newcastle supporters can keep on dreaming.
There will be a clear out this Summer, regardless of whether West Ham survive. On their way out: Reo Coker (7-10 Mil), Ferdinand (5-8 Mil), Newton (nominal sum), Harewood (3-5 Mil), Carrol (2-4 Mil), Konchesky (2-3 Mil), Paintsil (1-2 Mil), Daily (Free), Sherringham (Free), Blanco (End of loan) . Tevez will go if relegated, otherwise will be bought outright to form partnership with Ashton.
Players in could include one or more of the following: Parker (Newcastle), Bent (Charlton), Sissoko (L'Pool), Rosenior (Fulham) .
Should West Ham be relegated there will not be a fire-sale and the best players will be kept.
Word On The Grape Vine Round Sunderland Is That If When We Get Promoted, Theres is going to be a Trnasfer Budget of about 30-40million pounds in which Keane will be looking to bring in a few of his old team mates, and some young blood, like Billy Sharp
Following the 7-1 mauling at Old Trafford, Roma will lose several key players in the Summer. Shabani Nonda will be the first player to leave when he completes a permanent move to Blackburn following his season long loan at Ewood Park. Defender Cristian Chivu will slap in a transfer request, with Barcelona set to lodge a bid in the region of £12m. Chivu would replace Lilian Thuram, who is almost certain to leave Nou Camp in July. Also, Phillipe Mexes and Daniele De Rossi will leave, with Liverpool lining up a double bid for the duo.
