NORWICH RUMOURS: Lee Camp will be signing by Norwich either monday or tuesday for around £400k as David Marshall has been told he is needed at Celtic. Also Celtic duo Aiden McGeady and John Kennedy are set to join the Canaries on loan deals which may lead to permanent deals
Norwich City - Even though earlier in the week, Peter Grant stated it was not likely that Norwich would buy from mainland europe, reports in Holland say different. According to one National rumourspaper, Norwich are targetting Pius Ikedia currently on loan from Ajax. Pius currently plays for RKC and plays in central midfield and striker. Rumour has it Pius has had some sort of contact from fellow Nigerian Dickson Etuhu urging him to join the championship outfit.
Swindon will sign Andy Kirk next week from Northampton for a fee of 30,000
As Wenger said there will be nooo new signings so don't expect REO-COCKER to move to AFC in January. But expect Song, Lauren, Ryan Garry, Poom and maybe Senderos to leave in January. But with Adebayor being told that he no longer is first choice might see him leave for Spain or somewhere else at the end of January.
An old schoolmate of mine is an ex-pro who played in the lower divisions and is now working as a scout in the north west of England. He has told me that his contact at Man City told him that City are about to land the loan signing of a very big name. He doesn't know who it is but it's not SWP and is probably a striker and the deal could become permanent during the summer
The Lion in Aus.
Alan Curbishley is hoping to wrap up the Lauren signing by Monday.He will then try to sign Lucas Neill, with Konchesky going to Blackburn, and swap Harewood with Viduka.Also, Ashley Young will hold talks with Curbs, after Watford accepted his 8 million pound bid.
Everton are keen on bringing danny Murphy to Goodison as he is out of favour at Spurs a deal worth 2million will happen by next Wednesday Everton are also interested in greg halford from Colchester he would be a cheap younger talent than Lauren also westham have had a 8m bid accepted for ash young at Watford so expect both Villa and Everton to bid the same wages could play a part not hopefull on Everton's part then !
After the Southampton game Steve Cotterill has announced he hopes to bring in a player next week that he has been tracking for 12-18 months (see official site). I can confirm that it is Luton Shelton from Helsingborgs IF.
The young Jamaican striker was on Trial at Burnley during the 2005/ 06 season, but couldn't get a work permit after an unsuccessful appeal.
Also expect more signings before the end of the window as SC delves into his transfer kitty - various names are being mentioned, but the Luton Shelton deal is the only one that is definite.

Luton are welcome to him
Liverpool FC to beat of stiff competition to sign Ashley Young of Watford. Steven Warnock will be going the other way on a seasons long loan.
MANCHESTER UNITED RUMOURS
Man United want to sign a center midfeilder in the January window that's clear, but who?
Hargreaves will be staying at Bayern until the summer anyway. Rio Mavuba is the man. He will cost around 6 million.
Also Man United will make a late move for Internacional (Brazil) striker Alexandre Pato. But the striker is also wanted by Milan. He can go for 8 million due to money problems at his club.
He will have to go to Sporting Lisbon until he gets a permit cause there would not be enough time to process one in January. MANUFAN

To the idiot who said David Villa will goto Real Madrid and not Liverpool because they are Trophieless! Do you even follow football? Real Madrid havent won a trophy for nearly 4 seasons, yet Liverpool have won the Champions League, Super Cup and the FA Cup, and that's in 2 seasons. So who is the mediocre team my friend?
David Villa will sign for Liverpool, in the summer.
Mike Newell has actually tabled an offer of £800,000 + Warren Feeney for Scunthorpe star
Billy Sharp. If Scunthorpe accept - they will recieve a further £500, 000 on performances and a further £200, 000 if Luton are promoted next season. He is also poised to capture Luke Varney and possibly Pavel Abbot. If the Sharp move falls through, Izale McCleod is being targetted.
