Liverpool fc news.
Not many players will be heading for the Anfield exit door this season Rafa wants to keep most if not all his team from last season. Andrea Dossena who asked Rafa for a transfer might even end up staying until January at least. Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano will both be gracing the hollowed Anfield turf next season but heading for the exit door will be Andriy Voronin who will end up in the Bundesliga for a fee believed to be in the region of 3–4 million. Jermaine Pennant will go on free back to Birmingham city and maybe a few of the reserves will be going out on loan. No body has bought The reds so hicks and Gillett will put other assets up for sale to refinance loans and Rafa has already got his war chest so don't be worrying about funds for new players. In will come Glen Johnson for 10mill, Pompey owe 7 mill for Peter Crouch so that will clear the Crouchy bill taking the total transfer to 17 million. Johnson has said he prefers the reds after his last stint at Chelsea ended in him not having a love for the game any more. Also expect Carlos Tevez to choose between man city and Liverpool as his family are settled in the region, expect an announcement in the next two weeks. Another player on Rafa's radar is not a new rumour, its Stewart Downing but expect him to come in January rather than in the summer due to his long term injury, expect the fee to be 10 to 12 million. Javi Martinez is another man swapping La Liga for Anfield fee in the region of 10 million plus Mikel San Jose on loan. If Tevez chooses Man City then expect another Bilbao player to sign this player won't mind playing second fiddle to Fernando Torres and it is another Fernando that will come in its Llorente for about 12 –15 million. expect a few young south Americans arriving as well. Rafa won't sell expect Dead wood to be removed and build on the squad that's in place, The spine of the team is the best in the league it just needs adding too then title 19 will be in the trophy cabinet.

I work in the West Ham club shop and have just been asked to put all our letter Q's, the ones used for putting names on shirts, in a big envelope and send them to Cardiff City FC. Also, we have just placed an order for lots of J's and Z's.

Everyone's been talking about it in Accrington as 5–10million is set to einvested in the clubs facilities and transfer kitty.

Glazer's recent financial pressure lead to Ronaldo being sold! Since when did ManU balk at £25M for a player like Tevez, or bartered to lower the price? Debt on top of more debt! There will be token signings but no big transfer. A year ago Tevez would've signed and Ronaldo stayed.

Bristol City are stalling over whether to accept a bid for out–of–favour youngster Tristan Plummer. The bid is supposed to of come from Ebbsfleet which may be part of the deal which sent John Akinde the other way a season ago.
Also on the Ashton Gate front, Gary Johnson expects to sign a target man in Liverpool's hot prospect David Ngog. The striker is thought to be going to City on an initial season–long loan which at the end of City have a choice to buy the youngster for £2m.
Bristol City seem to be busy on the rumour front and another one is that ex–City favourite Leroy Lita was almost signed with immediate effect after his release from Reading. But due to misunderstandings between Gary Johnson and Lita's agent and a bigger club moving in on him, the move collapsed.
I AM A SUNDERLAND FAN AND I REALLY HOPE THAT BRUCEY DOESNT BUY BRANMLE AS IT WILL BE A MOVE IN THE WRONG DIRECTION HE SHOULD MAYBE OPT FOR SOMEONE LIKE JOHNNY EVANS AS HE'S BEEN ON LOAN TWICE TO SUNDERLAND AND HE HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. OR EVEN GO FOR ZAT KNNIGHT / GARY CAHILL AS BOTH WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO THE SQUAD AND WOULD IMPROVE A VERY SHAKEY DEFENCE. WE NEED A HARD MAN IN THE CENTRE OF MIDFEILD SO EXPECT LEE CATTERMOLE AS BRUCE RATES HIM HIGHLY AND WE DEFINATELY NEED A WINGER TO CROSS SOME BALLS IN FOR SUPER KENWYNE JONES (THE CARIBBEAN KING) AS THIS WILL HELP GET THE BEST OUT OF HIM. WE SHOULD GO FOR SOMEONE LIKE JERMAINE PENNANT OR NIKO KRANJAR PREFERABLY BOTH AS BOTH HAVE WICKED CROSSES. SAFC ALSO NEED A STRIKER A TWENTY GOAL A SEASON MAN SOMEONE LIKE DARREN BENT. WE SHOULD HAVE TREAT CISSE ALOT BETTER THAN WE DID AS HE IS ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS SUNDERLAND HAVE HAD FOR YEARS HE LOOKED A DIFFERENT CLASS TO THE REST OF THE LADS. (HE'S GOT FLASHY UNDERWEAR – CISSE CISSE – HE'S GOT DESIGNER FACIAL HAIR – CISSE CISSE – HE SCORES A GOAL WITH HALF A CHANCE – UNFORTUNATELY WE SENT HIM BAACK TO FRANCE – DJIBRIL CISSE SUNDERLAND NUMBER 9. AS A SEASON TICKET HOLDER I THINK I HAVE A RIGHT TO SAY SAY WHO I THINK SHOULD BE SHOWN THE DOOR AT SOL. HERES A LIST OF RUBBISH THAT SHOULD NEVER PULL THE RED N WHITE JERSEY ON AGAIN: DARLY MURPHY , GREG HALFORD , DAVID HEALY , ANTHONY STOKES , ANDY REID AS THEY ALL SUCK. WHAT A WASTE OFF MONEY.
LFC will sign Glen Johnson by next Monday. The deal was delayed as Glen's agent had told Rafa that his player will only move to LFC if he was guaranteed first team football AND that Alvaro Arbeloa would be sold.
Also, to the person who said Tevez was stopped for speeding. HAHAHA. .he was banned for driving 2 months ago coz he didn't have a full license. You muppet.
Srna from Shakhtar will be a 7.5M move to Man Utd.
Glen Johnson coming in looks like a strong possibility according to recent reports 17 to 19 mil really isn't to bad these days for an England international Richards would be business though Arsenal could have the inside run at him, Distin or Lucas Neil also could be in the mix as other options should deals fall apart.
With the media hype over Silva I wouldn't be surprised if Rafa sneaks in for either Nicolas Lodeiro or Arda Turan though Man U will be also keen after the loss of Ronaldo, All the rumours about Riera leaving I would suggest are false.
Being that Mais Sports owns 80% of Keirrison this deal could be off, I would not be surprised to see a cheeky bit for Darren Bent as when he did get a kick he wasn't to bad.
The central Midfield will remain unchanged unless a stupid bud comes in you never know.
That's my take , Berso
MAN UNITED NEWS!!!
The sale of CR7 to Real was very costly to CR7 camp, agent and Real, they have to shell out Cristiano's contract clause of CR7 to NIKE U.S.A. CR7's camp returned 2/3 of his endorsement deal with NIKE. hehehe!
The Glazer's, D. Gill and SAF are very happy with the deal. Now my sources from Florida said that SAF wants to sign 3 players plus 3 youngsters.
About Tevez SAF will offer Kia J. (Tevez Agent) for 18 mil/ 3 yrs if United wants to sign him again after 3 yrs then United will pay Kia J. another 7 mil, if not United will sell Tevez 70% of goes to United then 30% goes to Kia J.
Berbatov is wanted by several clubs Bundesliga and a club in Italy. SAF is considering to sell him with plus a player swap.
My sources confirmed to me who SAF wants:
1. K. Benzema
2. F. Ribery
3. K. Huntelaar
4. D. De Rossi
5. G. Gattuso
The Glazer's will add extra 20 mil from the 80 mil they received from CR7 totalled to 100 mil for transfers.
So let's wait all deals and inquiries from other clubs will be open 2 days before july 1st by D. Gill and SAF.
Liverpool will wrap up the £16mil signing of Glen Johnson in the next few days.
They will then turn their attention to Goran Pandev of Lazio. He is rated at around £15mil but since he only 1 year left on his contract, he will be available for around £9mil.
Liverpool will also target Arda Turan for around 10mil who can play on the left or in the hole
And then, to bolster the squad, Liverpool will target Micah Richards (5mil) Oscar Sielva (2mil) Jesus Fernandez (200k) and Luc Castaignos (3mil)
Unless Madrid come in with a bid of around £30mil
for Alonso, he is not going anywhere.
Leaving will be:
Dossena (6.5mil) Voronin (4mil) Leto (3mil) Itjande (0.5mil) Anderson (1mil) Hobbs (sold for 750k) Hyypia & pennant (free) Brouwer (300k) Degen (1mil) El–Zhar (1mil)
Leaving on loan will be Hamill, Plessis, Kelly, Martin, Nemeth, N'gog and a few others. Benitez wants all of them except N'gog (premiership) playing regular championship football.
Benitez does not believe 1 big transfer is the way to go, because it is the squad and not the first team in particular that needs improving. And since Pandev & Turan are available at good prices, Benitez will go for them instead of a 20mil bid for Silva.
Benitez also feels, that Pandev's & Richard's value will rocket after a season, and if they needed to, Liverpool could make a good profit on them next season.
A repeated theme from the Liverpool supporters seems to be that they have the smallest debt of the "big four" clubs and therefore everything is just fine. I should point out that whilst this is very broadly true, they are the only one of the "big four" clubs that (a) needs to refinance the debt, and most importantly, (b) needs to build a new stadium. I would suggest that the board will shun any offers for Torres below £40M but will need to give very serious consideration to any higher bids.
To the baggies fan re synagogues/initials AG. this is a wind–up, isn't it. we are supposed to all think avram grant, aren't we? try again.
Firstly, some bad news for Barnsley fans – you've just signed Onome Sodje from York. I'm a York city fan, and as far as I can tell, he has alot of pace, and a bit of quality, but not enough, and he can rarely be bothered to use his pace either going forwards or defending. He hasn't even made it into York's first 11 – so no chance at Barnsley, but oh well, we get a bit of money for him, and it lowers our wage bill!
Also, would people stop linking Ribery with Man utd or Barcelona – he has stated that he will only join R.Madrid, and his agent is the same as Zidanes, and has told Bayern not to negotiate with any other club but R.Madrid
There is absolutley no chance of Cesc Fabregas joining Man Utd but he may leave 2 Barca towards the end of his career.
Chelsea are hot on the trail of AZ Alkmar's Moussa Dembele and are willing 2 cough up around 15 million + add–ons and a loan–back option 4 the coming season. Carlos Tevez is the subject of a two–way tug–of war between Man City and Chelsea with the latter making Tevez a priority in the last few days.
Deco and Carvalho 2 Inter and maybe a surprise bid 4 Drogba, Chelsea will make a big push 4 Ibrahimovic 2 be included and Inter are open 2 the possibility of cash +Deco,Carvalho and Drogba. Man Utd are interested in David Villa but have left it too late and may watch as the bidding war between Barca and Real Madrid hots up. Madrid have fallen behind with their 25 million + Negredo bid while Barca have offered 32 million + the loans of Bojan and Caceras.
Clubs across Europe are eyeing the Real Madrid cast–offs that include Van Nistelrooy(Spurs/Man City), M.Diarra (Milan/Inter/Arsenal),Gago (Liverpool/Arsenal/Chelsea/Man Utd), Snejder (Juventus/Inter/Atletico/Bayern),Van Der Vaart(Bayern/Juventus/Ajax), Drenthe (loan–Panithinaikos).
Milan have signed Porto fullback Aly Cisshko 4 13 million and have Edin Dezeko next on their list. Wolfsburg will demand in excess of 30 million.
Arsenal are close on Vermalen with a fee of 10 million agreed. Sahko is a definite target and 5 million has already been offered and turned down. Wenger will come back and offer 8 million + Gallas while Hangeland is still on the radar with Wenger only willing 2 offer 10 million while Fulham want 15. Bolton have bid in excess of 10 million 4 Veloso but Wenger is monitoring developments. Blaise Matudi may stay with St.Etiene while Mohamdou Dabo is a definite replacement 4 Eboue. The big shock move is 4 Stuttgart's Thomas Hitzelsperger the German international who has one of the most powerful left–foots in Europe and only a year left on his contract Arsenal have been quoted 5 million.
Liverpool have trumped opposition from Chelsea and for Glen Johnson at around 18 million while David Silva is the player Valencia most want 2 hold on 2 as he is still young.
Villa will sign David Bentley and Olof Mellberg while Man Utdare still interested in South American pair Javier Pastore and Douglas Costa.
Bristol City look set to rekindle their interest in Rangers forward Naismith and offer him a way out of Rangers.
The Robins were favourites to sign the Scottish star in 2007 tabling a 1.9m club record bid, but Rangers came in at the last minute and snatched the deal.
However, Sources close to Naismith suggest he's contemplating a move again to England to further his game and feels the SPL is not a competitive enough league to realize his potential.
This news has put Bristol City's Gary Johnson on red alert as he is a keen admirer of Naismiths talents.
To the guy who put aguero wouldn't go to chelsea because he is a liverpool fan!?! wtf
just like steve bruce wudnt go to sunderland coz hes a jordie?
rumours i head are Lescott and Diego Buonanotte for man city.
Bristol city have accepted a bid for gavin williams belived to be in the region of £1 miliion – £1.5 million
bristol city have made an offer to get welsh man aaron ramsey out on loan from arsenal
Heard a rumor that the big forward Hedo Turkoglu from Istanbul is considering a move to Bristol City, as Bristol are looking to replace the big man Dele Adebola who is Nottingham Forest bound.
Liverool will sel arbeloba to real madrid for 8 million abd richards and johnson will replace him with richards 5 million and johnson 17 million
agureo will come in after new owners come in on july 2 plenty more players will come in after new owners

Details of the Cristiano Ronaldo tranfsfer deal to Real Madrid £80million upfront plus Wesley Sniejder deal to be announced on 26th June watch this space
The reason the David Villa deal has suddenly stalled with Real Madrid is that Liverpool have agreed to sell Alonso to them for £30m and Real agreed to drop the Villa deal as he has made it clear he wants to play alongside Torres, Liverpool will now bid £40M to take him to Anfield
Celtic " Quick " News
Mowbrays appointment will be formalised this week but behind the scenes rumour has it that there has been a huge amount of work being put in. There is no doubt the club are shocked by the poor season ticket sales, and the diminishing of Celtic's brand in the last couple of seasons. The money is not there for a splurge but , insiders suggest the following inventive path has been planned jointly by Lawell and Mowbray to reposition Celtic in the footballing firmament .Out :McGeady – he is hugely talented but " difficult " and Mowbray could do without the hassle in his first term. The cash from the sale would be good too. Suitors will be accepted for a deal worth £ 8 million net , though like Man United with Ronaldo the club want the money in one payment . It is possible that Man City ( Hughes is an admirer ) may move , failing which Sunderland or Everton
Hartley – Will be released
JVH – Will be released
Samaras – Club will accept any fee , problem is not sure any will be offered
Donati – Ditto
Balde – Gone
Robson – Admired but would be allowed to go should a fee be offered, a championship side could do worse
Nakamura – Gone
Caddis – Dundee United will offer £ 150 K – it will be taken
Wilson – Seen as a reserve , discontented to remain as such , will go if cash offered in whatever sum
Naylor – can go on a free
In : Hold onto your hats . . Paul Scholes traditionally a home bird wll be persuaded by Mowbray to have two more seasons at a big club but at a standard he would be more than comfortable in. United would be willing to allow his departure for free to record their gratitude to him
Fabio da Silva is the second shock move. To give him games SAF is willing to allow him to go for a year on strict condition he plays . Given Celtics shortcomings at LB this is a given. CFC will have to meet 1/2 of his wages i.e £ 20 k pw , an oulay of approx £ 800,000 for the season. Expensive but the club see his signature for even a term as a coup.
Steven Fletcher – widely rumoured mainly cos true ! Will be the big money signing taking up £ 4 million in a fee ( competition from Birmingham down south ) and £25k in wages .
Robert Snodgrass – Seen as a rough diamond by Mowbray. Views him as a project . Leeds United will do business for £ 750 k. Wages would be only £ 8k pw . Worth a gamble
Lee Martins – United winger is available for a knockdown price. History with Rangers no problem in the modern era. Mogga feels potentially he offers as much as McGeady. £ 1 million will do the trick . He will accept wages at £ 20 k pw but no less
Stephen Caldwell – place under threat as Burnley enter the EPL . Admires Mowbray and it is mutual . Would take a fee of £ 2 million and wages at the £ 1 mill pa mark but seen as worth it
Usual line up anticipated to be – Boruc, Hinkel , Da Silva, Caldwell G , Caldwell S , Brown , Scholes, Martins, Maloney , Fletcher , McDonald Subs from : Crosas, McManus, Loovens, Sheridan, Ferry, McCourt, McGinn,
For the wum that said this:
"My uncle works at Ross Hall hospital in Glasgow and there has been an appointment booked for a medical by Glasgow Rangers FC for two people.One of them is booked in as C.Nish and the other as B.Mehmet.Speculation has been sweeping Glasgow since Billy Mehmets supershow against Celtic in the cup for St Mirren.As a result of these two signings Kris Boyd will sign for Shakhtar Donesk for $7m Euros giving boss Walter Smith about 3m to spend on Zander Diamond £1m and Kriss Commons £2m."
Firstly, Rangers medical's don't take place at Ross Hall, they take place at Murray Park. Not sure if Celtic still use it, know that Roy Keane, Mark Wilson and Willo Flood all had medicals there but they might have medicals at Lennoxtown now. Nish and Mehmet are nowhere near Rangers class, they've never really troubled Rangers so we won't go near them. Kris Commons – possible, but more likely Chris Brunt. Zander Diamond – you kidding? Celtic supporter, plays for Aberdeen. Can't get a worse combination. No chance we'll see him in a Rangers shirt.
Okay lets clear some things up about LFC. This is coming from the man who brought you the original Robbie Keane rumour first, from a good mate who works at Melwood.
Geln Johnson deal is pretty much completed, to be announced next week. The final deal is 11m plus the 7m pompy owe for crouch. This is to match chelsea's offer, and Johnson prefers Liverpool. His agent is arranged to come in for talks on Friday and finalise a deal.
Next attention will be turned toards a striker. There is no definate deals for the big money player everyone is talking about. Some rumours saying Aguero and Villa are way off the mark, although it is true about the eto'o swap, this will be left up to Mascherano, as Benitez is making it clear he is not interested as he only wants a good quality cover for Torres without breaking the bank.
Saviola will join next week for 5m.
The Lavezzi deal is officially off, he's probably off to Juve or another Italian club.
Rafa will also buy some young players and Negredo for around 8m.
so far that's it althoguh he's still looking for an influential winger, and will raise more cash through sales of;
David Moyes will look to add these players to his everton squad this summer:
Fernando LLorente– Athletic Bilbao (15 Million)
Joao Moutinho– Sporting Lisbon (16 Million)
Ricardo Quaresma– Inter (10.5 Million)
Rafael– Manchester United (Loan)
Everton will need to sell some players before he can afford all these fees.
Jonathan Peace is resigned to losing Tony Mowbray to Celtic. His first choice to take over at the Hawthorns is Aidy Boothroyd.
A poll on a fans website which has Dave Jones as top of the list has been affected by voting from Wolves fans. . . .
yesterday (15th june) Darren Byfield was seen pulling out of the walsall training ground at around 1:30.
not much coming out of walsall really.but il keep you up to date with what i hear/read.
UP THE SADDLERS
To the guy that said.
walsall will NOT sign Savage on a permanent signing.his wage is to high but there is a could be a loan move.
Savage will not leave Derby as he is enjoying playing regular football under Nigel Clough.
If we do seel Bedtnar (his name is confusing to spell) then it won't be for less than 7 mil.
There is no way arsenal will sell Eduardo to tottenham, to the muppet who said Redknapp lauched a bid. He is not dumb enuff to try.
If Clichy does go, it will only be becuase the offer is too good to resist. But he has already stated his intentions to stay at Arsenal.
Arsenal are going to try and sign Hulk on loan but porto will try thier best to keep him.
If Fabregas does decide to go ( which is doubtfull)then we will try and sign cahill or Arteta from everton in a region between 10 – 15 mill
U heard it here first
Now installed at Wigan, Roberto Martinez has informed Dave Whelan that one of his first signing should be Jordi Gomez, who was on loan last year at the Liberty Stadium with Martinez.
Contrary to internet rumours, he will not be raiding his former club, as he does not believe that any of them, apart from Gomez, are of Premiership standard. The one exception is Ferdi Bodde, who missed most of last season with injury – Martinez wishes to wait until the January window to ascertain if Bodde has fully recovered from the injury.
The first deal at Wigan however will be the announcement of the sale of Valencia to Manchester United – this will allow Martinez to fund raids of Spanish sides to uncover further gems such as Gomez.
Roger johnson – burnley/birmingham
mika aaritalo – rangers
lars jacobsen – everton
Marvin Elliott set to leave Bristol City to Hull City for £1.75m. Also heading to the KC is Marlon Harewood for a similar fee.
I'm good pals with a Championship side player who trains in the same area as Arsenal. He said he saw David Noble being shown around the training ground the week after last Premiership game of the season. I've not seen it on the wire so maybe nothing has come from it. Jacko
Latest lfc news carlos tevez will not be signing even though his agent is to hold takls with lfc he has to much repect for man utd to move to a high rival team. david silva is almost done there will be more quailty signings to come eto mabe on his way along with hienze, snieder, and robben but I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT RAFA HIS NOT A BIG ROBBEN FAN. glen johnson will also put pen to paper there maybe a few fringe players coming. And there is no smoke without fire LFC will be taken over may not be by expected dic but there is huge interst from saudi. MR X Over and out
To the divvy that said chelsea will sign johnson wheater & turnbull from sunderland. I think you will find they play for middlesbrough you numpty.
I do have a rumour for you all though. Apparently newcastle united were formed in the late 19th century & not 1992 like most geordies think. These times were called BKK (before kevin keegan) when they were shit like they are now.
