07/ 08 Season
My cousin used to work for Leicester and has told me, as he knows rob kelly, that kelly is looking to bring in atleast 4 players. The names that were thrown around were Nathan Tyson (forest) , joey gudjonson (Alkmar) , kevin lisbie (Charlton) and olivier bernard (Newcastle) among others. these are probably the most well known out of the ones I no
After landing Hungarians Timar and Halmosi, and QPR striker Kevin Gallen, Ian Holloway has now turned his attention to securing the services of Oldham's Chris Porter. The stumbling block is that Holloway has offered Nick Chadwick in part exchange but Oldham don't agree with his valuation and he is currently injured. If Porter does agree to join Argyle, then Chadwick will likely go to Oldham on loan initially, Cherno Samba and Rueben Reid will also be loaned out.
Argyle have also turned down a £250k bid from Sunderland for Tony Capaldi. Holloway values him nearer £500k, with Sunderland or Wolves favourites to settle at £450k.
Connolly- Timar/ Seip- Doumbe/ Aljofree- Sawyer/ Hodges
Norris/ Gosling- Nalis- Buzsaky/ Summerfield- Halmosi/ Djordjic
- Hayles/ Gallen- Porter/ EbanksBlake-
Also dandenong thunder to sign Melbourne victory striker James robinson as he will be cut from the roster at the end of the season
Tottenham have agreed with Charlton a bid for D.Bent, a sum of 18.6 million has been agreed and a few last minute checks are being fortified.
These are the players that if Rafa gets his way wil be at Anfild soon - Javier Mascherano (Laon with veiw to permanent) , Nelson (Benfica) / Phil Jagielka (shef u) , Daren Bent (Charlton) / Jermain Defoe (Spurs) , Ashley Young / Simao / Bastian Swinsteiger. Leto, Insua, James McCarthy.
they won't sign Daniele Padelli Permanently as Scott carson will be staying. all this is due to the new owners comeing in and will be helped by sales etc.
The rumours about Xabi Alonso going to Athletico Madrid are correct. Rafa Benitez has realised that his decision to pass over Argentinian Wonderkid Sergio Aguero will haunt him if he doesn't act now.
He will instigate a straight swap for the 18 year old forward. This is why he wants Mascherano, to fill the space that Alonso will leave.
This transfer will most likely happen in the summer.
Glenn Roeder has made a loan offer for Real Madrids Cicinho and a full transfer for left back Raul Bravo. He has also made an inquiery about Stephen Warnock of Liverpool. No concrete names about any forwards yet but there are whispers about moves for Barcalonas Saviola and Benjamin Lauth of Hamburg! Reliable Source! This person told me the Damien Duff rumours before it had happened!
Dandenong thunder to sign QPR midfielder nick ward
After midfield duo charlie miller and Robbie winters have been released by Brann Bergen
Sir Walter Smith will sign them so he has cover for when he sells Barry Ferguson to Villa for 5m and Gavin Rae hibs for Scott brown.
With Walter Smith now in at Ibrox the following players will arrive in either January or summer
Dominic Matteo (sign on short term contract)
Gennaro Gattuso (swap for Jeremy Clement)
Mike Newell will table an offer for Billy Sharp from Scunthorpe which will see the League One club recieve £500, 000 + Warren Feeney in exchange. Luke Varney will also make a switch to Kenilworth Road from Crewe and partner Sharp in attack with Boyd and Parkin also in contention for places. Dean Morgan is set to leave with Leeds United and West Brom interested.
Dandenong Thunder midfielder Billy s is set for a trial with english side Scunthorpe United after impressing the coach of the side
Inter Milan forward Julio Cruz is heading for the Premiership this month. Aston Villa, Reading, Manchester City, Wigan, Charlton, Watford and Tottenham are all monitoring his situation and are preparing bids. I hear that Watford and Villa are set to make loan bids, but Inter would be looking to sell him, willing to accept offers of £3.5m or more.
Greg Halford has signed for Reading in a £1.75 million deal. There will be an extra £250, 000 if they stay in the premiership. Reading are also close to signing Zamora for £2 million. Steve Sidwell will sign his new contract in a few days time. It will be anounced at the Reading home fixture against Sheffield United.
My dad works at Arsenal and he says that he has seen reo-coker at the Emirates with wenger, he has also heard that buffon will be bought in the summer along with Ribery and abidal. lauren will leave for West Ham, Freddie to italy, and aliladere to europe
To the season ticket holder at Ibrox of many years, well here's to the hangovers and kebabs as it was that kind of spirit that brought 9 in a row. Anyways Weir to sign short term and Kevin Thomson is the only Hibs player coming, as for Clement leaving it's going to happen as he was Paul Le Guens prodigy and is raging at his dismissal.
Inverness Caley Thistle transfers: I assure you these are true as my auntie by marriage is Charlie Christie's sister in law:
Don Cowie (Ross County)
John Stewart (Aberdeen, Loan)
Barry Robson (Dundee Utd)
Craig Beattie (Celtic, Loan)
Steve Banks (Hearts)
Mark Brown (Falkirk, Compensation)
Craig Dargo (Sunderland, Compensation)
Rory McCallister (Partick, Loan)
THIS SUMMER RIBERY TO SIGN FOR LIVERPOOL
Thats right. If Cisse impresses during his loan period Liverpool will give Marseille Cisse plus cash. The amount will all depend on how much of an impression Cisse makes and in turn reflecting what Marsielle value him For. This was the reason why Ribery did not sign for another club during summer. Cisse loan deal was always going to happen but after Ribery showed his value at the world cup Liverpool took an interest. Especially since he is very good on the right wing!
in January lauren will be leaving and expect no signings until the summer when we will se a host of stars apperaing at the emitates. expect klose to come along with NRC. another central defender will be bought to bolter the defence and a left bak. buffon will come.
all the people thinking Torres will come to Manchester. its not going to happen and we all know it. he will end up staying in spain and moving to Barcelona.
also Liverpool will not get vill who will go to Real Madrid and won't come to a medioca lpool side who are trophyless.
To the guy who said no bid has been lodged by Crewe for Brian Wilson. your wrong. Dario has confirmed they have made a £100, 000 bid to get him in January and also he fancies his chances of getting him with him wanting to live in the Manchester area.
Everton want a new right back lauren from Arsenal is a target also PSG bernard mendy has been mentioned also nigel Reo Coker will sign for Everton NOT ARSENAL with tubbs going the other way (beattie)
SAF will ended Owen long approach after a unsuccessful bid, and he has decided to sign Rio Mavuba and Bale. out: wesbrown - Newcastle, Henize - Real.
THOMAS MYHRE (FREE + CARROLL) , LAUREN (FREE 4 NRC) , LUCAS NEILL (2M + KONCHESKY) , DANNY MURPHY (4M ) , CLAUS JENSEN (4.5M) , JONATHAN GREENING (4M) , JAMES BEATTIE (3M + ZAMORA) , RAUL TAMUDO (7M) R ALL ON THERE WAY 2 UPTON PARK!!
Arsenal are keeping tabs on a unknown asian youth Koh. he has impressed at the Arsenal acedemy in singapore and is heading to highbury for a trial soon.
heard that none of the strikers are going, but mido is the most likely if any. Ashley young deal almost done.
Was back in my native north east and heard from a reliable source of nufc that they will be breaking the bank to buy 2 quality defenders and a world class forward in the transfer window. Sheppard will but his normally short hands in those very big pockets and will bring in
Roeder sees brown as a perfect replacement for injury prone stephen carr and leighton baines will add extra dimension to the left back role that has underperformed all season with any number of personnel. As for the forward he wants forlan to give Toon the edge in europe next season as goals and forwards are going to be in short supply with owen bambi on ice and martins all prone to a sideline jaunt for months on end
Recently spotted dining in a top Jersey restaurant were David Murray (Rangers Chairman) &Gattuso from AC Milan. Gattuso back to Rangers to link up with Walter Smith again. 100% true!!
Coventry city are after Peter Ijeh from Viking FK in Norway. £250, 000 according to a source close to the club.
Just saw Trinidad Left Back AVERY JOHN at the training ground to discuss a deal. Also rumours circulating that the following will go in/ out:-
- Robert Butterfield, Glentoran, 20k
- Jeremie Aliadiere, Loan
- Marc Bircham, Forest/ Leeds, 400k
- Armel Tchakounte, release
- Matthew Rose, release
Also Mancienne to extend to end of season
I'm a Cardiff City fan and I've heard that Alan Smith is going to Cardiff untill march because of Henrik Larson. Smith is frustrated with the amount of game time and thinks he is fit enough after his horrific leg break in February.
Reading FC Rumours
Steve Coppell has already said that there will be no outside UK players brought in as they take time to adapt so he will bring in few players used to the pace of english game, one possibility is Bobby Zamora (2mill) another is Greg Halford (Colchester - 950,000) but with Kitson slowly regaining fitness and Doyle tied down for few more years don't expect too much upfront. Sidwell will stay and sign new contract after impressive season so far, so the only real transfers likely will be full back cover, cen midfield cover and cen back cover
Coventry Youngsters Andy Gooding and Ange Lorougnon are attracting interest from other clubs. Gooding is interesting Man City who faced him in the Youth Cup last season, while Lorougnon is talking to a number of French clubs about a return to his homeland.
Darren Moore could be arriving at the Ricoh next week on a free transfer to be joined by a Premiership midfielder by the end of the window.
Liverpool is keeping tabs on brazillian right back eduardo Ratinho. He is seen as a long term replacement to Steve Finnan. they are very interested in him after missing out on dani alves.
Heard that Huddersfield are to sign geoff horsefield from sheff Utd and also that there two defenders danny adams and martin macintosh are leaving on a free and also that pawel abbott is leaving for a 100k to Luton. Also heard that in exchange for abbott warren feeney will be going in return.I also know the an executive of Nottingham Forest and apparently nathan tyson is wanted by Sunderland for 1.3 million.
Peter Odemwingie of lille and nigeria is at the top of Manchester City's transfer list.
Strong rumour from the shrimpers that eastwood will not be moving to West Ham and that the speculation has got out of hand.
West ham will miss out on Smertin and Neill , but they will seal the deals for lauren Greg Halford , Hartson and Josemi ( the old 1 from Liverpool) as Curbs always 'liked his manner of play'
Other possible deals are depending on Magnusson , if he is willing to fund the deals etc
these deals wuld b of Bent , Ljungberg and Gardener.
Cisse will be coming back to Liverpool
since he is doing good in france. expect him to be back for Liverpool Fc
A friend of mine works at Kilmarnock FC and told me today that Rangers will sign Stevie Naismith for approx £1.0m, and in order to strengthen their attack, will look to former hero Jerome Veraille&Gareth Wardlaw, his current strike partner at local rivals Ayr Utd. With the £1.0m from Rangers they could easily afford this.
Alan Curbishly looks set to sign Lauren in some sort of exchange for Nigel Reo Coker. Freddie Ljunberg may join his Arsenal team-mate there if Curbs can persuade the Swede and is unable to sign first choice - Shaun Wright-Phillips. Curbishley hopes to add Viduka to his side as well and Middlesbrough are keen on a Harewood swap. He is likely to keen Anton Ferdinand before cashing in on him at the end of the season unless he can capture Matthew Upson. Curbs is also hoping to sign Stephen Warnock from Liverpool but will face stiff competition from Blackburn - if he makes the signing - he may let Konchesky go. Expect Youssi Benayoun to leave for Fratton Park. Smertin is a top target but Fulham are set to pip the Hammers for his services.
Curbishley is looking to have the following starting XI:
Green, Lauren, Ferdinand/ Upson, Gabbidon, Warnock, SWP or Ljunberg, Quashie, Bowyer or Smertin, Boa Morte, Viduka, Tevez/ Zamora/ Sherringham/ Cole
Hot Rumours regarding Aston Villa and there transfer action this January.
The top targets are as follows:
Robbie Keane/ Darren Bent, Bent is preferred but Keane would cost less
Ashley Young-wanted but resigned to not gettin him as Liverpool are keen
Curtis Davies&Upson-both wanted as they are proven premiership class
The next couple might seem like Martin has been sending his scouts to play Football Manager but these are on good authority:
Freddy Guarin-young columbian midfielder with a bullet of a shot
Ustari-Argie Goalkeeper who the scouts think could become the worlds top goal keeper
Vela-Arsenal kid out on loan at the moment not highly thought of at Arsenal but the couts have been impressed
Adu-is also going to have a trial soon as he feels he will play more for a mid table team to improve himself
EFC POSSIBLE SIGNINGS
1) Ashley Young - 5mil And Davies
2) (possibly) Nugent - 6mil
3) Scott Brown - 2.5 mil
4) Jermaine Derfoe - 7mil and Beattie (only if Nugent deal falls through
5) Alan Smith - Loan
6) Kieron Richardson - 3mil
1) Weir - free - Rangers
2) Beattie - 3mil And zamora or swap for Defoe deal
3) Davies - Watford (part of young deal)
4) McFadden And Naysmith - Rangers - 5mil
These are all true RUMOURS that go round at goodison WHERE I WORK
I'll Post More soon you blue fans!!
Rangers rumours - to the guy that said Hutton, Burke and Steven Smith are well known for being spotted out in Glasgow on the nights before games. I regularly drink in the nightclub they go to and the only time they have drank before a game is when they have been on long term injury. You'll need to forgive the young guys for going out and enjoying themselves. Can I also point out it's full of Celtic or soon to be ex-Celtic players at the same time i.e. McGeady, Pearson, Thompson. Anyway, Gow will sign in the transfer window for around £300k, Gattuso will arrive in the summer, also expect a suprise player who has not been mentioned yet in the press to sign within the next week. Anderson will NOT sign as Aberdeen will be looking for too much money for an overated player who couldn't get a game under Smith for Scotland.
Sorry to say. no signings for MUFC this month. except henrik (extending his stay) , Oh with a 25m tag on him is ridiculous. Maybe for 15m but I doubt he'll be coming this Jan. with all the stories here and there that will never stop untill 31st Jan. Latest story is that Chelsea are planning a bid for him, what's next?. Striker Torres will be joining in the summer (fee fr 25m) . Sir Alex will be looking for a winger because richardson is useless though I'm a MU fan. He is just another Pennant to me. Giggs is past his age. I have a feeling Simao or Nani will join. While for the defense, Silvestre will leave, Brown will stay as a back up for the right back. with Evra at left back, heinze will challenge fr cb (as we can c hw well he play for Argentina at WC). Expect a challenge for Rio and Vidic. Bale will join but trust me no more signings. IS A FACT
