Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Spurs are in talks with Macedonian international Goran Pandev currently at Lazio. Info comes second hand from a cousin who lives in Rome.
At a recent sportsman dinner for my beloved EVERTON a director let slip that Evertons new ground will not be in Kirby but in sandhills by the railway station just outside of Liverpool city centre
Leicester City rumours
Mr Mandaric is currently away in America at the moment so this piece of info is not definite, but according to my source, there will be a press conference on Tuesday where Mr Mandaric will personally thank Nigel Worthington for keeping Leicester up and wish him well in the future, after which, he will unveil Chris Coleman as new Leicester boss. Another snippet of info my source gave me is that Mr Mandaric has lined up the signings of Tony Capaldi and Salif Diao for Mr Coleman.

Birmingham city squad for next season-
J Loyd Samuel (villa)
Liam Ridgewell (villa)
Jiri Jarosik (Celtic)
James Beattie (Everton)
Marlon Harewood (West Ham)
tebily (sheff utd)
Puerta - Sevilla's left sided player is being looked at by Rafa. He can play left back and further forward and will challenge Riise next season and allow Aurelio more time to recover
Liverpool have confirmed a deal to sign Alexandre Pato for £10 million. The fee matches his release Clause and is set to be confirmed by the official site tomorrow afternoon. How do I know? Because I'm one of the updaters for the site. www. LiverpooLfc. tv you will see tomorrow.
As reported days ago on the official Liverpool site we had signed Lukas Leiva from Gremio who is the captain of the under 20 Brazil team. We didn't know his fee. Lukas Leiva's fee has been confirmed as £8 million.
CELTIC signings for next season :
SCOTT BROWN (Done)
SCOT MacDONALD (Done)
STEPHEN APIAH (Almost there, another half a mill will seal the deal)
CRAIG BELLAMY (100% "I still have unfinished business up there at Celtic&want to finish it", quote from Liverpool Fanzone. )
JAMES McFADDEN (Swap for Miller&is a Tim&Celtic daft, so done deal)
MARK VIDUKA (Has nowhere else to go&Celtic need another big striker up front, also has been with Celtic before, so it's you scratch my back&I'll scratch your's ! Done deal)
DANNY SHITTU (Still recovering from the shock that THE CELTIC actually want him, so has already started walking from Watford to Glasgow to sign for Celtic)
JOEY BARTON (Willie MacKay his agent spilt the beans to Ewen&Roughy on yesterday's Real Radio, so looks like deal has already been done)
Oh, guess who's the agent for all the above mentioned player's, yes you are right it's WILLIE MacKAY&guess what Willie is CELTIC daft !
Players to leave are :
Lenny (Thank's Bigman !)
MON the HOOPS
For the Everton fan who keeps posting that Thomas Myhre is going to leave Charlton and sign for you - check you facts - he's already signed for Viking in a deal that was done over 3 months ago.
Aryen Robben to sign for Bayern Munich in a cash + willy Sagnol deal
Plymouth Argyle in contact with a Premiership defender and a forgien striker, players are unknown as of yet. Nick Chadwick will be leaving in the close season and only 2 players will join on loan from Chelsea, ben Sahar and Scott Sinclair. siclair is very likely 2 happen, to gain match practise and boost his fitness after recovering from his broken metatarsal. Andy Cole, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Arjan De Zeuuw, Karl Hawley, Jermaine Easter and Izle McLeod are interesting Ian holloway as he looks to be the next, but more successfull Watford. Friendlies with Chelsea, Tiverton, Exeter (if promoted) and a forgein opposition are in the making. Already annonuced: vs. Torquay in Kevin Hills testamonial. the pilgrims push towards the Premiership starts this summer. the greens are moving forward ;-)
Jackie Macnamara should sign this week for Aberdeen. I believe Michael Stewart will follow and Craig Beattie possibly just on loan. Xander could be on his way out, he is not living up to his potential Dien Shiels could come the other way with Diamond going to Hibs.
Any other AFC rumours let me know
I do have the one little bit of gossip. From a journalist at Hampden Park last night:
Alves is going to Liverpool along Sabrosa and Jesus Navas is on his way to the Emirates. These deals are agreed in principle and will be cash only, no swaps involved. I have no reason to make these rumours up because I'm a Celtic fan. Whether the hack was right will be revealed sooner or later.
Was at the Uefa Cup Final Last Night at Hampden and Craig Gordon was there with his agent. Gordon denied he would be moving to Rangers in the summer but as they were leaving his agent said "He'll be there".
Rangers Till I Die
I have also heard that he will be selling t. Miller (250,000) Ipswich, cunningham and varga (100,000) colhester and Danny Collins (500,000) Cardiff. he will be sighning Bramble and bernard (free)
Rijkard to resign as manager of Barcelona leaving Eto'o to leave to England. with Arsenal or Liverpool the possible destination.
Roy Keane to sign Viduka with Robbie Keane following.
Hartlepool United want enuff money to buy daryl Duffy so they will sell dimi to Coventry because Hull City want 150,000 for Duffy and Hartlepool have got money left over from adam boyds transfer to Luton also expect Hartlepool to buy Danny Graham from Middlesbrough for 80,000 I think they'll sell dimi for the sum of 230'000 and av enuff for them two players he will bring in other players buh it hasn't been decided by wilson expect Hartlepool United to get into next seasons league 1 playoffs.
Roy Keane may offer David Unsworth a chance to stay in the Premiership at Sunderland whilst Ipswich are keen on the ex Wigan defender. Arjan De Zeuuw who has also been released has spurred interest from abroad and Cardiff.
To the guy who said Phil jagielka "nailed on" to Blackburn he is going to return to Everton where he was once part of the academy (1999) he wants to Everton wrong for selling him at the time.
Rumours from Scotland from a highly regarded source,
Celtic to have a mini clear out. Craig Beattie on loan to Wolves for 1 year, Marshall to sign permantly for Norwich, Rocco Quinn to Kilmarnock. Graveson and Balde to one of many Premiership teams.
Coming in is one BIG name striker from the continent possibly Makaay or Kuranyi.
My sister also works at the Emirates and has given me the rumours from the inside:
Ljungberg to Ajax (as I said the other day) price unknown.
Henry is leaving Barca or Inter 10 mill! Bargain.
Hleb wanted by 5 Spanish clubs HAZE
Trust me this is true,
nicolas anelka is on his way back to Arsenal.
Wenger feels he has unfinished business with him.
he feels anelka, Henry and van Persie,
will be the potent strike force, he needs to bring trophies back to Arsenal
Liverpool - everyone but Rafael Benitez knows what he is going to do with the spondoolies the Americans are giving him. One thing for sure, no big striker signings - Benitez is allergic to out-and-out strikers - so no over inflated Tevez/ Torres or Eto'o - though David Villa would not be a surprise.
Fowler - free
Dudek - free
Le Tallec - free
Pongolle - 1.5m
Cisse - 7.0m
Carson - 4.0m
Hyppia - 1.0m
Peltier - free

Leiva (M) - 6. 5
Amuari (Att) - 6. 0
Leto (AM) - 2. 0
Alves (RD/ M) - 13. 6
Kompany (CD) - 7. 5
Voronin (Att) - Free
Simao (RM) - 12. 8
Owen (though why ?) - 9.5m
Marquez/ Raul/ Saviola - all good tips for oldies signing for a year to boost a title challenge
Total 57. 9
John Ward from Cheltenham Town is bein touted as the favourite to be the new Wigan gaffer. Have heard this from a close friend with family connections to CTFC
Mike Newell will have an interview regarding the vacant managerial position at Sheffiled United and at Leicester City, there is a good chance he could be back in with a job very soon.
From a sourse at east End Park. Hibs to sign Scott Wilson and barry Nicholson from Dunfermline for Rob Jones + a nominal fee.
Sammy Lee is aiming to re-sign Eidur GudJohnsen and make him his first signing at Bolton Wanderers
Spurs rumours are that they will sign Darren Bent 12m, as a replacement for Mido and is seen as back up with Defoe to berbatov and Keane. younes kaboul will sign 8m as rotation for king and dawson with Taylor 5m Portsmouth as the new left back. in midfield Spurs will sign one from sneijder 14m maresca 8m arango5m for the centre and Robben 15m petrov 7m for the left wing prob Spurs team next year
squad: alnwick, cerny, kaboul, rocha, dervitte assou-ekotto, stalteri, malbranque, tainio, taarabt, huddlestone, Defoe, bent, barnard, dixon, pekhart.
lee, Murphy, ghaly, mido, Gardner, Routledge.
Stop Stop Stop! Why does everyone continue to spread silly silly rumours? United WILL be signing Berbatov (19.5m) as well as Viduka (free) (totenham&berbatov will not be able to resist the lure of big money and a big club, Viduka has many other options but will want to end his career on a high and it is about time he joined a big club) if the berbatov bid does fail which I am assured it will not then expect a bid for Torres or Huntelaar in that order. Unfortunately United will also be signing Hargreaves, although he is a good player there are better players available for similar or less money (19m app. ) if which is unlikely this bid fails Fergie will sign another midfielder (there are far too many names being bandied about&Cahill is not one of them) United will NOT sign Bale or Richards as they are heavily overpriced for such unproven talent. United will however be signing Nani not sure of the fee but this will go through. That is Fergies big three (excluding Viduka who is free) I really wouldn't expect any other new arrivals although I would rule it out. Leaving will be Saha because he is ROTTEN and has chronic injury problems! Alan Smudger Smith will not be leaving as he is far too good a player and brings alot to the team whne selected. Silvestre will be leaving (rotten) hienze will NOT be leaving nor will Brown or O'Shea! pique and Rossi will be back and will be trying to prove they can cut the mustard as will the likes of eagles and co. United will be looking to add a qaulity versatile defender as cover for Neville and Ferdinand to the squad as yet I have no names for you. As mentioned above Fergie may add another midfielder to the sqaud, he is on the lookout for a successor to Scholsey, there is no one currently at the club capable of filling his boots and Fergie will be looking for an understudy to play a bit part role over the next couple of seasons this transfer may not happen until next summer but it will happen, I have no concrete info as to who this may be and I will not be posting rubbish just to create interest!
Van Der Saar
First of all the blue nose that said Del Piero is going 2 join Steve bruce why waste peoples time it won't happen just like staying in the Premiership. Sunderland to sign Viera, sos m8 but u need a reality check. and the Hammers fan who said that only they can match the top 4 wage demands your wrong because other clubs are owned by foreign billionaires that can speak English un like turretty eggy. for example randy learner who owns Aston Villa red sox! finally Aston Villa signings- Bellamy 4 8mill alredy seen at Villa park and oNeils previous manager
possibility of K. Richardson as Man United are looking to make money on a top 4 flop
swp won't join as he snubbed a move last year
wes sjnider is looking at life in the Premiership an oNeils being scouting the German and Holland market
Joey Barton a possibility but city will take higest bid Villa probly won't pay 4 unsettlement.
why would jd want to join the Hammers when he can partner J. carew and become an aston legend only 1 claret and blue good enough 4 Premiership as whutd had to feild an inelegibale player 2 stay up
blue noses enjoy next season bcus it will b short lived u won't survive without Arsenals shopwindow investments.

Plymouth Argyle set for a surprise swoops for former Gulls hot shot Leon Constantine and Leeds youngster Jermaine Beckford. Both players have impressed ollie recently and also expect John Sutton to head down to the best in the west. Loan Moves for Ben Sahar and Scott Sinclair from Chelsea, and Matt Jackson from Wigan. Lasse Nilsson also in talks. Chris Eagles will join on a record transfer of 600,000. Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has big things expected from him so expect barry hayles to be used less and offered a coaching role. also expect furlong from QPR to be offered a player/ coaching role for the season.

Celtic have been sounding out Cruz Azul's Cesar Delgado and the reply has been encouraging. With only one year left on his contract, the prolific scorer could turn out a bargain for Strachan's Champions League squad, and the perfect partner for target man Vennegor of Hesselink.
expect Celtic to sign Alves alfonso £8-10 million he is the right footed naka when it comes to free kicks
This is a fact no lie, I will be giving you one rumour a week now for lcfc, Stephen Hughes is going to Hearts I've heard this from a reliable source that they have offered him more money than he is getting at Leicester which is 1500 a week, also none of the players no if they are wanted at the club or not. so expect a massive clearout.
warnock next gaffer

Chris Coleman will go to Sheffield United. He will sell Jags for 7 million to Everton and Paddy will go to Sunderland.
Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United could be on collision course over 2 players.
Allardyce wants Nicolas Anelka and is prepared to pay upto £15 milllion to get his man.
Bolton and Newcastle are both chasing Swiss player Gelson Fernandes and the 20 year old starlet will cost around £4 million to the winning bidder. It is likely that Bolton will win the race for both as Bolton are now seen across Europe as a more attractive club than Newcastle due to regular UEFA Cup involvement
now to the true rumours Mark Viduka will join Manchester United on a 3 year deal. and guiseepe Rossi to b sold to Juventus for 12 million euros. Mark my words

- MAN UTD-
I hvae it on good authority that a deal taking
Fernando Torres to Manchester could be completed within the next two weeks. Pending results this weeked Atleico cannot qualify for the CL. He said if Atleico don't get CL football nest season he will leave. Fergie has been desperate to sign Torres for ages! Owen Hargreaves will sign soon. Personal terms have been agreed but the fee is still the stumnling block. Nani is not a higher transfer target as first thouht, Carlos Queiroz has confirmed this.
Also I have heard that Barca, have been in talks with Chelsea over a swap deal between Eto'o and Drogba. Both players have stated they could be tempted into new challenge.

- SHOCK RUMOURS SHOCK RUMOURS SHOCK RUMOURS SHOCK RUMOURS- MAN UTD look to be closing in on Sheffield United golden boy Phil Jagielka. holding midfield or solid centre half. the no fuss tough guy wants to stay in the Premiership and is one of only a few that never seems to be in the treatment room. SAF rates the boy highly and as a cover in any postion defensive or holding midfield he would only add to the shaky defense at this moment in time.5 million could be money well spent on the golden boy of Sheffield. .
Sometimes I wonder where all these rubbish rumours come from! Seriously, please post real rumours, not fantasies! Here are some actual rumours. Henry - Barcelona, Robben - Barcelona, Ronaldinho - Milan, Trezeguet - Barcelona, Lampard&Terry&Mourinho - Real Madrid, Villa - Liverpool, Torres - Man United, Cahill - Roma, Simao - Liverpool, Alves - Liverpool, Toni - Bayern Munich, Viduka - Juventus, Tevez - Liverpool, Sissoko - Juventus, Martins - Chelsea, Hargreaves - Man United, Diarra - Chelsea. =MB=
Regarding the Tim Cahill to Man United Rumours. Most people are saying around 8m transfer. I know for a fact that Man United have peppered Everton with bids for Tim in the past and efc have continually rejected them. The highest bid was 12m in 2005 (also an offer of 9m + player - not sure which player though) . I know player values fluctuate due to varios reasons, but why would Man United drop the price and still hope to get him when efc have been stubborn and not sold him?
Emre, Martins, N'Zogbia to leave, in coming will be Darren Bent, Sol Campbell, Ricardo Gardner and 3 players from outside English football
Big Sam also wants to rebuild Albert Luque's career, with him set to become cover for the left wing and centre forward positions when Martins and N'Zogbia leave.
To the Rangers fan who stated Scott Brown was overpriced and James Mcfadden was more talented, you have a serious dose of sour grapes ! for a start Scott Brown was Rangers # 1 signing target for the summer and its funny how James mcfadded is valued at 1 million and Brown 4.5 million kinda tells its own story ! anyway Celtic still want to bring in another 3 or 4 quality players to try and progress to the next stages of the champions league.

To the fan that said Argyle will be signing Andy Cole and getting rid of Seip, Summerfield and Buzsaky. I have never herd so much rubbish, First Cole is On well over 15 grand a week which is more than argyle can provide provided they want other (QUALITY) players, and Portsmouth are trying to get him off there wage costs so no they won't allow us to pay no or minimal contribution. Also Buzsaky has made it pretty clear he wants to stay in Plymouth, His sister is settled and I don't think that after convincing and being happy that his fellow countrymen Timar and Halmosi have signed that he will leave. Summerfield is staying put this season, I know Kevin and both of them are some of the hardcore fans who make up the club so until Argyle at least make the play offs and summerfield gets a good season under his belt, I strongly disagree that a 2.7mil offer will prize him away. Seip also staying put as he feels that Ian Holloway can develop his career and showed belief and trust in him. - MOVING TO the subject of incoming transfers expect to see or hear from: Ben Sahar (LOAN), Hatem Trabelsi (FREE), Arjan De Zeeuw or TITUS BRAMBLE (FREE), Frank Songo'o (LOAN from PORTSMOUTH), James Vaughn (LOAN), Gabor Kiraly (Free)
LIVERPOOL ARE SET TO GO BRAZILIAN THIS SUMMER AND ADD A TRIO OF FLARE. WITH THE CAPTURE OF LUCAS LEIVA ALREADY In MOTION. BENITEZ IS PONDERING A NEW STRIKEFORCE. WONDERKID ALEXADRE PATO IS ON HIS WISH LIST AND THE BIG MONEY SIGNING THAT HE HAS BEEN TRYING TO KEEP QUIET IS NONE OTHER THAN ADRIANO FROM INTER MILAN. PATO IS THOUGHT TO BE VALUED AT 10M AND A CHEEKY BID OF 19M MAY BE ENOUGH TO PRIZE THE BRAZILIAN POWERHOUSE AWAY FROM SERIE A.
I spoke to Sam Allardyce today and he told me that his three main targets are Nicolas Anelka, a talented midfielder called Kingston and Kevin Nolan. Scott Parker could be going to Everton but Newcastle have £30m to spend. £10m for allardyce's staff and the football scientists that worked wonders at Bolton. He is also targeting up to five defenders, including Matthew Upson who has an escape Clause from his nightmare at West Ham
PLYMOUTH ARGYLE. Ins Teddy Sheringham or Kevin Gallen, Ben Sahar (on Loan), Scott Sinclair (on Loan), Arjan De Zeuuw, Andrew Carrol (on Loan) and David Edgar (on Loan)

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE. a move for Titus Bramble after his release from Newcastle will be made although unlikley to go through due to his high wage demands.
