Ajax are repotively interested in signing are new talent from south africa. A forward named Irwin Moodley has caught the eye of Henk ten Cate's team during are 3 week trial in which was given to the Orlando Pirates rising star. The 20 year old has made it very clear of his desire to play for a world class team. Other prospects including Moodley's brother Malen has also caught the eye of the Dutch teams coaching staff
I am laughing at everyone who says Hargreaves will go to Man U for 7 million. Bayern have said they value him at 30 million euros, which given the price of Carrick is probably not far off the mark. The only big Prem club looking for a DM, (and please make him english!)and with the cash to spend, is Arsenal. Expect a bid from Arsenal early next week! Man U will take Senna and a forward, and that will be the end of transfers for them until January.
To the guy that said Arsenal may go for David Beckham, I think you are spot on. Both Reyes and Cashley will be straight cash deals. Wenger has already said he admires Becks, and Becks will be keen to move to London. Real is looking to offload him, and being dropped from the England squad, the Gunners may be able to negotiate fairly decent personal terms. A left back will be pursued then, and maybe, maybe, a central defender, though Wenger has great faith in Toure/Senderos/Djourou. Even Falmini may be tried in that position, with Wenger's ability to mould players to suit the team's requirement.
As a Gunners fan, believe we need somenone of Beckham's marketing potential to really get into the big league. Imagine the T-shirt sales!
To the Norwich fan - keep up mate - Ryan smith has been sold to Derby so carrow road - no chance
Watford news - Zoltan Gera - 1 season loan - he has told Robson that he won't play in championship after end August and Robson thinks that WBA will go up and Watford down so he gets his man back - but me thinks Watford stay up and WBA struggle - so bye bye Zoltan!
I know a coach at spurs and he says they have been practising playing robbie keane just behind defoe and berbatov. I have no transfer rumours but hopefully this will stop the defoe rumours.
GRAVESEN TO NUFC. . .MARTINS TO NUFC. . .
SENNA NO TO MAN UTD
NUGENT TO POMPEY
TREZEGUET TO LYON
MICHAEL OWEN IN JANUARY TO OLD TRAFFORD. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ALL 99%TRUE
Lucas Neil to liverpool? HA! There is more chance of mourinho saying "Congratulations liverpool, they were the better team". He wouldn't exactly be a popular choice with fans or players after he broke carra's leg and got sent off against us twice. Liverpool will sign a striker this summer, but only on loan. There has been talk of david trezuguet and raul and liverpool have enquired about both. It looks now like they will go for Antonio Cassano. They are just waiting for his knee injury to clear up. That will be it as rafa is saving the pennies and he is very interested in fernando torres. Expect a big bid in january or maybe next summer, providing we get investment.
Newcastle have put in a loan bid for obafembi martins. They are also preparing a bid for louis saha.One more striker will come in but i havent been told who. A bid has been made for steed malbronque so i think this ruees out graveson. GR is also very interested in pascal chimbonda. A loan bid for liverpool's daniel agger has been made too.
David Beckham will take drastic measures to reclaim his england spot. . . join newcastle. He thinks playing in the premiership will give him a better chance. Real have told him to go and have lined up daniel alves as a replacement. He will cost the toon 6 million.
Chris Sutton and Paul Ince have been offered the chance to join dennis wise and gus poyet at swindon as player coaches.
Arsenal WILL sign an English CB but it will not be Davies or Woodgate, it will be Steven Taylor of Newcastle. You heard it hear first, L.M.
Honestly, some of the rumours on here are unbelievable. They look like a text message you´d send, what with the spelling and all that. .utter nonsense. Celtic do not have the money and Petrov could stay as no-one is prepared to pay the 7 million that they value him at. Even if he does go, Celtic will coffer the money to reduce even more debt. The days are over at Parkhead and it will take another 5 years before their youth policy players bail them out. Same goes for Rangers.
Watford will sign either scott carson or jerzy dudek on loan, it's up to liverpool which one goes. Neil mellor will also go to vickerage road, although it will be permanent. Stephane Henchoz is still interesting the manager. Freddie Estwood and matty fryatt are both targets too.
Rangers are on the hunt for a right back and will look to the French league once more. A centre back is also on Le Guen´s list and at this present moment they are in talks for a loan player of World Class proposition. Watch this page! They are also monitoring the Danniel Ljuboja situation. The maverick but classy Stüttgart striker was released by Stüttgart under mysterious circumstances and the club will negotiate readily for a buyer. Chances are he´ll stay in Germany but Premiership clubs have been alerted.
Please, please stop linking liverpool with lucas neill. You might as well link us with Gary neville or fatty lampard. The REAL fans wouldn't allow it. We won't sign any full backs as kromkamp and especialy Riise will stay. The only player coming in will be a striker. I have been told rafa will sign a young spanish striker. I don't know any. Any suggestions?
Man Utd - SAF has more money to spend than anyone knows, but the Glazers have seen how Chelsea get treated in the market so they like to keep the budget a secret. Atletico want to sell Torres he has 2 years left on his deal and will not sign a new deal, they also just paid out £15m for Agüero. SAF will get his man before the window closes, he will also move for Diarra and Hargreaves who he sees as the a great utility player. While Tevez and Klose are on his hit list along with Adriano. Senna will only be signed if the Diarra deal falls apart. While Kerlon and Toró could join in January.
I have some interesting news about Chelsea. I looked into the recent summer signing of Kalou from Feyenoord to Chelsea. The fee was agreed and the contract sorted within two days of Chelsea's interest. However, the part I am stalling on is why is he a Chelsea player. I think there were dodgy dealings concerning his visa to play in England. For example, Mark Gonzalez has only been given his visa this summer. The reason there was such a delay was of Chile's poor ranking, being ranked 75th in the world. They needed to be in the top 70 for him to be granted a visa and he had to have played the majority of their games - which he had. Back to Kalou. Currently, Côte d'Ivoire are ranked 20th having moved up 12 places. The only issue is, Kalou does not have the necessary paper work or the number of caps. He has hardly played for his country, so I am left wondering by what means did Chelsea do to get their man?
Everton Fc will make a surprise season long loan for Stephen Appiah who may accept as he wants his dream move to the premiership.
Bolton wanderers are looking to take some exciting youngsters from around the country they have neen looking at the highly rated welsh under 19 deffender James Wilson they had him watched in the recent Milk Cup tournement the young Bristol City prospect has been gaining attention from a number of Premiership clubs who are looking to bolster there young british players
John Arne Risse on his way to fill chelseas left back problems for £15 million. The money will be used by liverpool to buy Mirislov Klose who will guarentee 20 goals a season. To all the Man Utd fans who think there gods gift to football ure manager is loosing the plot and ur gradually getting worse and worse so ur not that great.
First of all, allow me to say well done to the guy talking about the grammatical errors. Some people on here try to abbreviate everything and it's just wrong! As far as latest transfer news goes, a little birdie has told me that Arsenal are monitoring a couple of players set to replace wantaways Jose Antonio Reyes and Ashley Cole. Seeing how Reyes is Madrid bound, apparently Arsene Wenger is lining up a bid for current Madrid attacker Robinho, though not as a swap deal. New Real boss Fabio Capello has already added Ruud van Nistelrooy and the signing of Reyes would give him major headaches from his strikers complaining of a lack of games. Robinho was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal last summer while he was at Santos, but opted to join Los Galacticos instead. Now, however, he could be tempted to move to the Emirates stadium as he would practically be guarenteed first team football, and he'd be given the number 10 jersey following Dennis Bergkamp's retirement. With regards to the left back situation, Ashley Cole has got to the point of no return at Arsenal. It saddens me being a die hard Gooner, but I think we should cash in now for a player whose heart is no longer with the club. He was the one who tried to initiate a move to Chelsea, then blamed us for it, then said we'd fed him to the sharks - and he calls himself a lifelong Arsenal fan! What a joke. Chelsea are welcome to him, but the question is who will Wenger choose to replace him. Although he has faith in Gael Clichy and Mathieu Flamini, does he or anybody else see those two playing left back for an entire season, especially considering we had 8 left backs last season. I know French defender Eric Abidal has been mentioned, but I've been informed that the Arsenal are watching West Ham's Paul Konchesky. He had a good season at Upton Park last season and could emerge as a surprise target for last season's Champions League runners-up. I'd expect a bit of transfer activity this week, one way or another.

Charlton News - Charlton are set to sign 2 big names before the window closes Fiore and Mido. Plus bids have been lauched for Green, Bale and Gera. while he is also looking at bring Routledge and Mikel in on loan.
This is true fact. If united sign senna, this means they are also going for a striker as £4m for senna would give them more of a budget to buy this striker, who i think could be adriano. BUT, if they sign hargreaves for £8m, no striker will be signed as there are not enough funds.
chelsea will buy lahm instaed of cole

If Ashley Cole's big money move falls through then Giorgio Chiellini of Juventus will move to Chelsea in a deal thought to be around the region of £4million.
im a celtic fan and mulgrew will go to watford done deal and celtic are supposed to be singing sumone with over 100 caps
1. I don't actually think that we need Graverson but if the rumours are true with Emre (Bust up, want's to leave) then it's probably a good replacement but i still think we need Emre
2. Martins looks set to come to Newcastle and for some reason i don't know why, i have a feeling that Monday is the day for either Martins or Bridge
3. Kuyt is a very good player and i would love to have him but i don't think we have enough money (Thank you Souness and Shepard) also i'd now expect that if Preston don't get promoted this season that Nugent will be on his way to us, depending if Roeder is a fan or (If Freddy does something stupid) his successor next season is
Thank you and good night
Newcastle United manager Glenn Roeder will clinch the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Thomas Gravesen this week in a deal potentially worth €6.5m based on appearances. Gravesen is surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu following the arrival of Emerson from Juventus, plus his brawl with Robinho earlier this month did him no favours with anyone associated with the club. His former club Everton have also been monitoring his situation and have first refusal on the player, but the Dane is likely to opt for a move to Tyneside to compete with the likes of Scott Parker, Emre, Kieron Dyer and Albert Luque for a starting berth.
