Firstly will people stop posting nonsence rumours on here regarding there club buying kenwyne Jones from Sunderland, Keane has already issued a hands off to all clubs interested in him, so how can he be signing for anyone.

plus a high profile central midfielder.
now stop posting these silly rumours or I will send Keane round. blacky SAfc4life
Chelsea Probably Ins:
Boswinga – Confirmed
Vaan Der Vaat
Drogba will be stay on Stamford Bridge
Hello here are some transfer gossip
Deco to Everton
Ronaldinho to AC Milan
Gattuso to Rangers
I have been sent out to Germany to watch Werder Bremen midfielder Diego who is seen as a possible replacement for Alexander Hleb. If Hleb leaves the Emirates this Summer then expect Wenger to make an audacious £20 million bid. He will play behind the forwards with Walcott moving on the right wing.
Latest Manchester City rumour. the club want to build a home grown talent, they have been sending out scouts to watch Forest star Lewis Mcgugan
– – – –
In a shock move Mixu Paatelainen is looking to bring Mali International Amadou Konte back to the club, Hibernian have been rather shot shy of late and Mixu is looking to bolster his attack force for next season.
The fee is rumoured to be around £1.6 million
These names have been flying roung Carrow Road about possible deals this Summer:
Maceo Rigters (Blackburn)
Robert Earnshaw (Derby)
Derek Riordan (Celtic)
James Brown (Hartlepool)
Gregorz Rasiak (Southampton)
Patrick Kisnorbo (Leicester)
Iain Hume (Leicester)
David Connolly (Plymouth)

Cameron Jerome (Birmingham)
Shola Ameobi (Newcastle) (far–Fetched)
And many more.
But as we know Norwich Struggle to sign anyone.
or we could always re–sign Huckerby ;)
HEART OF MIDLOTHIAN Rumours
– – –
Romanov is keen about a few players of note, a few being Fabian Le Clerq, Fitzroy Simpson and Mohammed Berthe, he has been watching them for a while and will make big money bids as he tries to keep Calum Elliot at the club on the premise that he will bring in big stars to compliment him.
Summer signings at Newcastle:
Diane (PSG) £4 million + Rozehnal
Sidwell (Chelsea) £5 million
Veloso (Lisbon) £10 million
Shorey (Reading) £5 million
Ben–Haim (Chelsea) £3 million
Spent: £27 million
Sales will be:
N'Zogbia (Tottenham) £5 million
Rozehnal (PSG) Part exchange
Carr (Villa) Free
Ramage (Queens Park Rangers) Free
Troisi (AZ) Free
Ameobi (Stoke) £4 million
Money received: £9 million
Net spending: £18 million
There will be lots of money to spend at Ibrox with £22 million from the UeFa Cup run £9 million from the Hutton deal + the £9 million that sir David will put in to walters transfer budget leaves 40 million, He can spend how much he likes but is only likely to spend around half, put £10 million into the bank and save the other £10 million for January.
Carlos Cuellar and Alan McGregor will not be going anywhere as Walter alreday needs a LB and centre back and he does not want to have to reshape his whole back 4.
LB McCartney–0.5 million/Murphy–1.5 million
CB Ambioreta–6.5 million (Athletic Bilbao)/Ivanovi–loan
CM Edmilson–Free/Gilberto–4 million
CAM Kallstrom–8 million/Camacho–loan
ST McFadden–5.5 million
He may also make a surprise move for Noel Hunt
Weir will be given a player/Coaching role
Leaving will be–
Sheff Wednesday in/s and out/s
Franck Songo'o (free) Portsomuth
Sam Sodje (250 k) Reading
Graham Kavanagh (free) Sunderland
Adam Bolder (free) Queens Park Rangers
Bartosz Slusarski (free)
Robert Winder (15k) Doncaster
David Otter (12k) Scunthorpe
Adam Seddons (free) Arsenal
Marcus Bent (1.2 million) Charlton
Kevin phillips (maybe rubbish) (free) West Bromwich
araon Mclean (500 k) Peterborough
M Johnson (free) Derby
Mark Beevers (3.5 million) Chelsea
Ronnie Wallwork, (all released)
Kenny Lunt (150K) crew
Peter Gilbert (free) Doncaster
Deon Burton (150 k) Colchester
Rock Lekaj (loan) Colchester
Wade Small (250 k) Plymouth
Right, lets clear the air at Newcastle.
1. Owen will not be leaving, all this speculation about a wage cut is rubbish as they have not even opened talks regarding his future yet so noboody knows what the offer is.
2. Given will not be leaving, he is Newcastle through and through. There is no reason to replace his either as far as I am concerned, and probably along with 90 percent of Newcastle fans, Given is one of the most consistent keepers in the Premier League.
3. Obafemi Martins will not join the Gunners, he has said he will give us one more season to get into a European competition, if we do not achieve that still he will then leave. He is close to signing a new deal too.
4. Steven Taylor will sign a new long–term deal in the next week.
5. Nobody knows the Summer tarets, all of this speculation about Gomis, Diane, Veloso, Henry, Lennon joining is nowhere near definite.
And no I am not Keegans sisters, boyfriends, aunties, cousins, son.
Liverpool have agreed to play Hamilton in a pre–season friendly. This was agreed during negotiations for midfielder James McCarthy, who will sign in July. Also Rick Parry is negotiating a loan deal for Zarate which will be made permanent in 2009 if he is a success. This was brought about by Ajax asking far too much money for Huntelaar. Barry will also sign after handing in a written transfer request on 16 May. Barry was actually Rafas second choice behind David Silva who has been priced out a move. Dani Alves will complete signings for the first team. Any other signings will be for the reserve and youth teams.
Nasri, Gervinho, Dos Santos, Kompany, Ben Arfa
Flamini, Hleb, Lehmann
Forest will be signing:
Earnshaw – £2.5 million
john–baptiste – 750 k
Martin Christer (young talent) – free
Huckerby – free
wes hoolahan – 250 k
micheal dawson (loan)
David wheater has just signed a nice contract. Do not expect him or Downing to move for at least two years.
Boro close to Sidwell deal. Also Robinson looks cert as Schwarzer wants fresh challenge at Juve or Bayern. Boateng looks set to leave as he is not guaranteed first team football.
Reports on Southgate wanting Smith are rubbish. No inside information on this.
It is rumor in Lithuania that Vladimir Romanov has meet with Bertie Voigts and offer him job with Hearts manager for Scottish Premier League season next.
Voigts is currently staying in nice hotel in Kaunas at Mr Romanov pay bill
Queens Park Rangers will make a bid for ex NoRich forward Chris brown, reportedly for £1.2. they also want injured Luton forward drew Talbot on loan
I have just seen Pascal Cygan around Birmingham's training ground, it is reported that McCliesh is looking to replace Liam Ridgewell who is on his way to a newly promoted Premier League Club
I have heard from a friend who works at Chelsea that he heard the name Podolski being mentioned
I have heard from someone at the top at Doncaster that if they win the play offs and make it to the championship then Kevin phillips will be on his way to the keepmoat. Mark mcgammaon and Paul heffernan will be going to Darlington to join old manager Dave penney.
I read this forum sometimes to have a laugh but I think it is only fair that some Rumours are quashed and I will only confirm deals that are nearly done and to look out for in the next couple of weeks.
Firstly, those who are not moving: Aguero (Ath. Mad), Ibrahimovic (Int. Mil), Adebayor (Ars), Messi (Barcelona), Kaka (AC), Sergio Ramos (Real) All of these players will be staying put unless their clubs insist they go which is unlikely in all cases.
Close transfers: Ben Arfa (Ars), Dani Alves (Barcelona).
Players with fees agreed but in talks with more than one club (I will not reveal the clubs but will give you a clue): Zarate (2 top 8 Premier League teams), Berbatov (1 La Liga, 1 Serie A, 1 Prem).
Players definitely leaving current club:
Ronaldinho (Barcelona are however asking for a world record fee)
This will be a record Summer for transfer fees so I will tell you what to expect from certain clubs.
Arsenal, One big name and 2 expensive youngsters.
Chelsea, Upheaval at the bridge Buckle up.
Man United, One big signing, that is it.
Liverpool, All is not rosy. No DIC = No transfer funds, Rafa will have to sell to buy.
Tottenham, LOTS of foreigners.
I do not have to justify myself.
I have been speaking to a friend of mine out in FC Barcelona, he is the club doctor. He tells me that there is going to be a major turn around this Summer. Eto'o is in talks with Inter and Tottenham, would prefer a move to Premiership with the big 4 though so may hold out a bit longer. Dos Santos will not be leaving unlike a lot of predictions. Ronaldinho will be but no Premier League side is prepared to pay for his huge wages, AC looks the most likely destination for him. Deco may well be heading back to Portugal with Porto, and Arsenal have inquired about Yaya Toure as a replacement for Flamini, but are not prepared to spend big on him. Thierry Henry is staying put, as is Messi, Xavi, Valdes, Puyol, but bids on all other players will be listened to. Zambrotta looks likely to head back to Italy with Juve leading the chase. FC Barcelona are very keen about Hleb after hearing he is unsettled in London, they are also keeping tabs on Drogba and Lampard.
Sven to mexico.
It is reported that Sven goran erikson has been approced by the mexican national team to become their new national coach.
Having having produced a poor run in the later half of the season the City owner thaksin shinawatra is reported to be looking elsewhere for a new manager to lead his team into Europe next season.
Derby are been linked with Watford forward nathan ellington for a fee of around £3 million and also a bid for African wonder kid tresor mputu
Birmingham City will complete the signing of Lee Carsley on Monday from Everton.
As a consequence, Damien Johnson will take a medical at Wigan in view of a £1 million move to the Latics to join former boss Steve Bruce.
Also on Alex McLeish's radar is another Birmingham born lad – Manchester City's Daniel Sturridge. McLeish would like to take him on a season long loan to give him first team football experience.
Olivier Kapo will sign for Tottenham for £5.5 million and Gary McSheffrey will rejoin Coventry City for a fee of £2 million.
Birmingham will use the money to bring in Southampton's South African born midfielder Andrew Surman (£2.5 million + add ons), Middlesbrough defender Chris Riggott (£2 million) and Plymouth Argyle's Peter Halmosi (£3 million).
In light of the recent turmoil, Richard Kingson will leave the club for free and Birmingham will attempt to sign Richard Wright of the Hammers for a nominal fee.
Dan the man the only one in the know re Forest, Earnshaw will turn Forest down to go to Blades but Forest will land Danny Webber and also sign Billy Clark and Dan Harding from Ipswich. Calderwood also interested in Brian Howard but he wants a Premier League move. Likely that he will turn to Graham Kavanhagh fdrom Sunderland instead. All true and all from the inside.
David Bentley will not be moving down south to Chelsea. Arsenal are also a no–no. He loves life in the Northwest, despite coming from Peterboro his extended family are all from Bury and Rochdale. He grew up supporting Man United and would only leave Rovers for them or LFC. Rafa wants him but has been put off by the fee. He will be seriously chased if DIC come in, hence Rafa keeping his options open on the right.
Mick Wadsworth is a surprisse contender for the manager's job at Hearts. The Gretna boss will lse his job if they are not saved by Saturday and close and he has impressed Hearts with how he has lifted Gretna, who's result have improved since he took charge, including a defeat of Hearts – despite their problems.
Now for some real news about Birmingham City instead of Henry signing for about 7 different clubs cause his aunt's, mother's, Uncle's taxi driver said so.
After relgation we need to be realistic in who is going to come in to use in a push for promotion next season but all that I have heard so far is –
Zarate (Loan return)
Schmitz (Loan return)
Kingson (Transfer listed)
De Ridder (Transfer listed)
Ridgewell (Blackburn – £4 Mill)
Johnson (Wigan – £3 Mill)
Forsell (Newcastle/Fulham – £3.5 Mill)
Muamba (Wigan/Sunderland – £5 Mill)
Jerome (West Bromwich – £3 Mill)
Not Going –
Maik Taylor (just signed another year contract)
McSheffery (if Kapo is sold)
Nafti (just signed an extension)
To be realistic after the fans turned on the board at the weekend they will be reluctant to spend a massive amount as they feel let down by some of the previous purchases by Steve Bruce but there will be some major coups, some targets include loan signings from the big 3 and some championship signings like (Beckford, Howard, Thomas, Commons, Kightly, Murray, Seyi George Olofinjana etc. ) Also expect some interest in players from the Scottish Premier League and Africa.
Keep Right On.
Working for a London football magazine I only hear rumours and nothing is certain at this stage.
The main ones are as follows:
ARSENAL are likley to sign Eto'o for around £15 million. Wenger rli dusn't want to let him go to Tottenham in case he adapts well to EPL and then will neva be able to buy him.
BEN ARFA's agent has admitted deal to ARSENAL is almost done but CHELSEA are looking to swoop last minute with big bucks.
TOTTENHAM are interested in buying Malouda for £10 million.
CHELSEA will counter this buy finally buying Barcelona's GIO DOS SANTOS.
ARSENAL will try and sign Kompany but face competition from Villa and Tottenham.
Liverpool will sign:
Diego (15 million) AM/SS
Michael Owen (7 million) CF/SS
David Silva (22 million) RW/LW/AM
Philip Degen (free) RB
Aaron Ramsey (5 million) CM/LM
Wayne Bridge (5 million) LB
Santiago Canizares (free) GK
Leaving will be:
Peter Crouch (12 million)
Scott Carson (7 million)
Harry Kewell (free)
Andrey Voronin (1 million)
John Arne Riise (5 million)
Steve Finnan (2 million)
Charles Itjande (3 million)
Guthrie will stay at Liverpool next season to see if he can make it.
Plessis will go out on loan to get some experience
Jack Hobbs will stay at the club as well.
real transfer gossip
Everton fans may be a little shocked to find out that David Moyes will leave the club. He has been offered the Celtic job and is strongly considering it.
MANCHESTER UNITED will sign Daniel Alves and Kenwyne Jones. ARSENAL will not be entering a bidding war for Gareth barry, he will sign for LIVERPOOL. But Benitez has NO MONEY to spend, so will only have cash for signings from selling players like Crouch. Liverpool fans need to start being realistic. To the person who thinks Liverpool are getting money for Kewell, he is out of contract and is therefore leaving for free. CHELSEA will still have Didier Drogba next season, and will only sign Arshavin from now.
The shelf side; there will be a mass clear out by 'OL JR but it will not be swap deals for players JR see's as average i.e. ANDY JOHNSON at Everton. if and when bent goes it will be for money only. the only player at Everton JR see's as a "swap" is ARTETA.
= THFC= ; TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR F.C. are preparing to offer £10 million which will be accepted to SPANISH AGENCY CONSULTING PLANESA for CAPEL who is at SEVILLA,
the City square mile London
Qpr manager Ian Dowie is to look to his former cash – strapped club Coventry for a new midfielder – with startlet Isaac Osbourne being the likely target. Although Queens Park Rangers are not too worried about spending lots of money on transfers, Osbourne will be as cheap as a cabbage, with £75,000 being the likely fee. Dowie has also made a bid for jobless Sandor (formerly of Plymouth Argyle), as he feels his team do not have enough Eastern European style.
I was at Stamford Bridge earlier, visiting the megastore and there seemed to be a player being shown around. I did not recognise him but he had a massive entourage with him and looked like a footballer. I asked someone near to me if he knew who it was and he thought it was Mario Gomez. I have since looked online for pics of him and I am still not sure.
Alex Mcleish and Karen Brady were showing Lee Carsley around Wast Hills (Birmingham training ground) this morning and he is expected to sign on Monday morning. Also Mauro Zarate is in talks with Liverpool with a view to signing although it is rumoured there is interest in Spain and Italy. Maik Taylor is also set to sign with Liverpool as back up for Reina.
Arsenal to sign David wheater from Middlesbrough £7.5 million 100 percent
Just heard a rumour from a reliable source at the club that Plymouth Argyle are to sign Japanese forward Takuma Pasotijima for £500 k. Sturrock is excited by his goal scoring potential and thinks he could spearhead the attack next season.
Daniel Pasoti is also arriving for a trial during pre–season having been released from Arsenal's youth academy.
I have it from the chairmans mouth, at Grimsby Town – Alan Buckley could "move upstairs" and top of the list to replace him as manager is Nigel Clough.
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez hopes to set up swap deal for Espanyol winger Albert Riera.
Benitez is willing to offer cash and the loan of Argentine midfielder Sebastian Leto in exchange for Spain international Riera, who would jump at the chance of moving to Anfield.
I have heard from a source from a worker at the Melwood training Centre at Liverpool that David Villa will join Liverpool for a pay–cut of £14 million becouse of possible relegation, if they do not Villa will join for £12 million + Xabi Alonso and he will wear the No. 7 shirt which currently is hold by Kewell but I have heard he's off for Cardiff City for a Free Transfer and young Paul Anderson will also join Cardiff on a loan deal. Gareth Barry will join Liverpool for £12 million + Voronin and Scott Carson. Also Liverpool will replace Itandje, a future Lyon goalkeeper, with Carlos Kameni from Espanyol for £8 million as No. 2. LI'verpool will also replace Riise who is to join Newcastle United for £8 million with Nicky Shorey from relegated Reading, Liverpool will also have Degen from Dortmund for Free. Liverpool will also make a shock move for unhappy Gabby Millito from FC Barcelona for £6 million and also David Silva, Ricardo Quaresma and young Aaron Ramsey and all will cost £18 million.

Romanovs desperate to turn things round at Hearts. His first move will be to appoint Mark Mcghee as manager who will bring ross mccormack with him on a bosman. He will be partnered up front with els hitman Freddy Eastwood (1.5 million). Another player on the wishlist is Alan Gow from the Rangers reserves.
West Bromwich are after United reserve star Rodrigo Possebon. Tony Mowbray sees the 19 year old Argentinian as an ideal signing to bolster his midfield options.
Walsall could unveil former player David Kelly as manager, the former Saddler has already drawn up his plans and presented them to the Walsall board whom seem to be very impressed.
Kelly is looking to bring In: –

– Darren Potter – Swap deal for Mark Bradley (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
Walsall have also enqueued about the availability of former player–coach Mark Kinsella, The Saddlers are hoping to take Mark for the same amount compensation they received a few years ago. This would give Charlton the funds to keep hold of Chris Powell as a coach.
Luton are to name a stand after Luton and Walsall legend David Preece who passed away last year.
ARSENAL TRANSFER Rumours
This is what will happen
YaYa Toure–From FC Barcelona
Samuel Eto'o–From FC Barcelona
Micah Richards–From Manchester City
Mathieu Flamini–AC Milan (GONE)
Robin Van Persie–Unknown
WE will not BUY – Mauro Zarate
And Also Carlos Vela and Fran Merida Will Come Up From The Reserves
NEWCASTLE pounce on Everton duo
Kevin Keegan is currently trying to tempt Everton defensive duo, Phil Neville and Tony Hibbert, away from Goodison Park. An offer in the region of £9 million was made yesterday (Wednesday). The offer valued Neville at £5.5 million and Hibbert at £3.5 million.
It is rumoured that Stoke City and two other Premier League clubs are leading the chase to sign highly rated, Costa Rican forward, Alvaro Saborio. He scored 109 goals in 149 appearances for his first club and recentley attracted attention of these clubs with his performances both nationally and for his current club, FC Sion of Switzerland.
League Two Luton Town could sign John Baptiste from Mansfield Town for £50,000.
Need to post this on the site, my Dad works for major newspaper. latest news on Arsenal making a move for Middlesboro centre half David wheater.
Wenger very impressed with displays by him against the gooners this year.
could be the next Tony Adams in the making.
bid to happen very soon region 5–8 million.
England international soon enough.
The arrival lounge at AVfc will be very busy this Summer with arrivals from across the UK.
Carson will not be signing, not even for £1 million. His performances this season would rate him behind at least 5 English keepers. Some keepers have been signed at outragious prices but that doesn, t mean they have been successful. Many years ago the Kop sang "Careless hands" to Gary Sprake and called others " Cinderella. " What would they make of Carsons errors.
If Rafta wants Gareth Barry then he would pay £25 million from Europe teams and that is the price from AVfc.
Many players have been signed for mega bucks and not substantiated the fee. Therefore if Crouch returns to AVfc the price would be for a reserve player £5 million.
Villa Park will be the place to be next season, wait and see
I work in the cantine at St. James' Park and have recently heard that both Shay Given and Geremi will be leaving within the first two or three weeks of the Summer. Given is off to Tottenham while I think Geremi is in talks with Monaco
