Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Newcastle are interested in Fernando Ricksen of Rangers(currently on loan in Russia). Roeder has asked Craig Moore about the player and has received nothing but good reports. Expect a 1.2million bid in Jan.Higuain will sign for Madrid at the end of the season purely because they are offering the most money. Chelsea will make no more major signings until Abramovich's divorce has been settled, although Shevchenko will move back to Milan for 17million which should provide some cash.John Collins knows that if he is going to do well at Hibs- and he has the strongest possibility to claim second spot in fifty odd years- he has get a half decent goal-keeper: so expect big Rab Douglas to sign in January.
BOONDOCK1st to the guy who said SAF will sell rooney to madrid to make way for adu. get a friking real. Fergie is trying to build a super team for the future and selling rooney would seriously dampen any chance of that happening. Adu will come in as will Torres and hargreaves. nani is a possibility if richardson is sold as fergie would then have 4 good wingers in giggs ronaldo park and nani. nuri sahin could also be long term replacement for paul scholes. expect richardson silvestre jones and smith to be sold at end of season or even in jan!Bleiberg's replacement for Qld roar coach islooking increasingly likely to be ex socceroo coach frank farina as he needs club experience before trying coaching at international stages againRoy Keane has agreed deals with Billy Sharpe of Scunthorpe, Richard Stearman of Leicester, Lewin Nyatanga of Derby and Gareth Bale of Southampton, he is also looking into, Shaun Maloney, Nicky Butt, Alan Smith and the shock return of Julio Arca.
Also barcodes to sign David Trezeguet for 17m(where on earth are they gettin this money?)with a relegation release clause of 5m, sounds like a major waste of money.Middlesbrough are preparing to strike up a link with German club Cologne, which would see both clubs trade players to gain experience. Gareth Southgate is instantly interested in youngster Adil Chihi, the 18 year old who is high on the shopping list of Arsenal and Tottenham. In return though, Boro could send a couple of their young players out to the German second division. Andrew Davies, David Graham and Matthew Bates could all be farmed out on loan in January if the link is struck before christmas.Rumours abound at WHL. There's been a lot of work to maren'tain a united front but behind the scenes the wheels are coming off.
Defoe and Keane are expected to be going to pastures new in January and both of them can't wait to get out. This is from the inside. Believe me there's more to come out of WHL in the next few weeks and it ain't good.GOOONERNEWS Some people posting on this site seem to think that every club in Europe has the transfer budget of Chelsea?They havn't.Man Utd have the money to buy their 2 top transfer targets who are Fernando Torres and Owen Hargreaves and that's all.Liverpool don't have the finances that their fans think they have and Real Madrid have around £20million left to spend?This will be spent on Fernando Gago,Marcelo and Gonzalo Higuain.Arsenal's finance director Keith Edelmann has stated that Arsene Wenger has a transfer kitty of around £36million and that will be spent on Franck Ribery(who is trying to get released so he can sign in January),Yohann Pele and Micah Richards.The only other possible signing will be Nuri Sahin(borussia dortmund).PLYMOUTH ARGYLE FANS watch out! Eric Djemba-Djemba WILL be joining on loan from Aston Villa, while Jermain Easter HAS agreed personal terms as posted by someone else on here. Easter will join in January while Nick Chadwick is being offered as a make-weight in a deal to bring Lee Trundle to Home Park. Gary Sawyer will be joining Swindon Town on loan.
Reading have offered £1m for Akos Buszaky but Holloway rates him nearer £2m. Watford, West Brom and Bolton have also shown interest without actually making a bid. Sam Allardyce has had him watched on a number of occasions and rates him highly. Big Sam is likely to make an offer of around £1.75m to get his man. ALL the money will be made available to Holloway to strengthen the squad.If Newell leaves Luton Town in the coming week, chairman Bill Tomlins is looking to recruit Alan Curbishley as new manager.
=v1=Celtic's Derek Riordan to team up with former Celt favourite Peter Grant at Norwich City.Rangers News

Jones III - Arsenal FC (Rumour Mill)
Micah Richards (Manchester City) competition for Emmanuel Eboue at Right Back and future Centre Half.
Nuri Sahin (Borussia Dortmund) competition for Francesc Fabregas, as he has played to many games for Arsenal and Nuri Sahin is a like for like copy of Francesc Fabregas.
Nigel Reo-Coker (West Ham United) future replacement for Gilberto as Denilson, Alexander Song and Abou Diaby will still need time to develop.
Yohan Gouffran (SM Caen) French U- 21 striker seen by many as the new Thierry Henry and can play either as Striker or a Winger.
Adil Chichi (FC Cologne) At this moment Arsenal have no natural wingers in there squared, so arrival for 1 or 2 young winger would be likely.18 year Hungarian wonder kid Krisztian Nemeth to Man Utd. He was top scorer in a recent under 19s tournament where Man Utd had scouts. Man Utd want to sign him in the January transfer window before other clubs try to buy him. I know this to be true because his agent knows my uncle.The following transfers will happen at Arsenal in the Summer.
1) Lehmann will go back to his old club in exchange (plus money) for Nuri Sahin.
2) Arsenal will try for Buffon but he will opt to stay in Italy, so it will be a tussle between Pele & Gordon to take over from Lehmann. (Wenger may be tempted by both if Almunia is sold as well.
3) Arsene will then make a bid for either Micah Richards (Who is an Arsenal fan) or Curtis Davies this will be the only defender deal with the likelyhood that Lauren will head in the opposite direction (plus money).
4) Will make a bid for Reo-Coker,if Baptista fails to impress Wenger, he will be seen as the long term replacement for Gilberto.
5) Ribery will be brought to replace Reyes.

Not all these player will come in but expect 3 or 4 to be signed.Chris Burke is moving to Spurs in the January tansfer windowDerby to take Tyrone Mear on loan from West Ham this week, with a view to signing him permanently in January. Billy Davies thinks he's the key man to tighten up the defence and consolidate the top 6 spot.I have been informed from a reliable source that Alan Smith will join watford in the January Transfer window on Loan to the end of the season.
Alex Ferguson Believes that this will give Alan Smith the first team action that he requires to get back to his best, and against top flight opposition. Also joining the Hornets will be David Healy a player that impressed Aidy Boothroyd during his spell at Leeds - 2 million approx as it would appear that he is not part of Denis Wise plans for the Future.
Hornets will stay up.I yesturday posted stuff about adu replacin rooney.well ronney has even mor suiters inter want him and will load of adriano to make way for him also a.c reckon if they get sheva back they could sign roony 4 30mil plus inzaghiNeil Warnock's main transfer targets for january are:

HISHAM Lol to the gunner fan who claims they will buy torres, villa and ribery, don't post such rubbish!
Now for Manu News, SAF knows he needs replacements for Giggs, Scholes and Nev in the near future. Thats why Nani (new C ronaldo) and Heitinga will be top of the shopping list. Adu isn't as good as every1 claims so its not sure if he will join us.We dnt have a striker or goal shortage, so we will not be signing torres or any1 else until summer at least and SAF will be wary to invest 30mil on el nino who may be a flop. As for scholes' replacement, he is playing amazing at the moment so that is not a pressing issue. SAF may decide to groom carrick for the role. IF not,which is probable, expect bids next year for Attacking midfielders such as kaka .Unlike most these rumours will come true. United for the titleRobinho will not leave real madrid neither will sergio ramos or cicinho, madrid will sign gago,marcelo,higuain,alexis,kaka and kerlon. watch this spcaeReal Madrid will sign lots of youth players next year with
Marcelo,Gago,Higuain,Kerlon,Nani, Alexis and Adu. Also Kaka will make a
£40 million pound move with cassano heading the other way as part of the
deal.Lfc are going to sign rafael van der vaart this january for 7 million with harry kewell leaving.luis garcia will also be going.in the summer lfc will sign daniel alves,micah richards,gareth bale and vincente.they also might sign beckham and kakaNewcastle will sell Albert Luque to Seville for £5 million in January and may even bring ex Toon player, Laurent Robert back!
