To think that Miro Klose would leave a fantastic club, champions league football, and a beautiful modern city like Bremen to go to a perenially average Newcastle club with a 50/50 chance at UEFA league football in the armpit of England is laughable.
TRANSFER GOINGS ON AT NORWICH.
Now Marshall has arrived on loan to the end of the season, Joe Lewis will go on loan to a Division 1 club - probably Gills.
Matthew Spring to join before the weekend from Watford for about 500.000
The two Hibs twins, brown and Thomson, have their heart set on a move to the Tic.
Heard their agent on real radio phone in last night confirming this to be the case.
He said that even with Walter in charge at Rangers they still want to join Strachan's team
Lawell and Petrie are talking at the moment, being going on for two weeks now.
He says Hibs are willing for them to leave in the summer but deal may be done in Jan.
Not a rumour as anyone who heard real radio last night will confirm this.
Bit gutted as I am a bluenose and think both are well worth a punt on.
Mathew Spring to sign for Forest.
Leicester are set to pay Charlton 1.5 million on matt Holland and jerome thomas. Milan Mandaric 1st Buys.
Leicester to sign Rory Fallon and Lee Trundle for elvis hammond and 1.5 million.
C.F.C Rumours Celtics latest signing will be callys keeper Mark Brown.
Rangers Will for the rest of the season play a 3 at the back. They will sign former Celtic Stars Tebilly And Scheidt. This will mean there backline be Weir Tebilly Scheidt:)
my grandad is the grondsman at Chelsea's training ground and he swears that he saw steven gerrard and macello lippi looking around and they are also interested in a young talent niall cassidy Alex donovan
Celtic are believed to be signing D.Carvalho for between 6 - 10 million are also looking a Anatoliy Tymoschuk also macros Senna to replace lennon at the end of the season Senna will be cheap at least 1 million but his wages will be high. Alexander Frei is another target for Gordan but don't expect to see him soon he looks to becoming at the end of the season
An old loanee keeper Lee Camp may be on the verge of rejoining as Paul Jones is on his way out and John Gregory hasn't the faith in Jake Cole. Lee Camp is highly recommended by goalkeeper coach, Tony Roberts.
Tony Capaldi is a target as left back is seen as a problem area. Trying to snare a bargin as he's out of contract in the summer.
A striker is another priority for the R's as Nygarrd may be departing due to fitness reasons. Pawel Abbot, Reading's Shane Long, contract rebel Andy Keogh and a shock loan for a young Celtic forward are the names in the frame.
Other departure could be Marc Bircham and Steve Lomas. JG wants there high wages off the wage bill and dosen't see them as part of the club even in the short term. Ranger's could return to Huddersfield after snatching Abbott to snare his teammate John Worthington.
Exciting times ahead with most of the promising R's players staying and Gregory following Derby and Preston's example of signing proven english league players with potential.
Iain Jozefowicz a young polish protege has been seen with Roman Abramovich! Unfrtunately he was rejected and is starting 11 games in a row on the Pock 4ths bench! P.s he's ginger and polish! and maybe Jewish!
I am good friends with Martin Jol, and he aims to sign Manchester United LB Heinze by the end of next week. if a 5 mill bid is turned down his budget will reach 8 million
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will get the chance to sign the player he craves most after Brazil playmaker Ronaldinho hinted he wants to leave Barcelona, he said ' english football exites me and I want to play with the best players in the world like Ronaldo and henry'.
Spurs are targeting striker Simao to replace Mido who is leaving the club in the summer, this info is only 50/50 as I am friends with jol. he is finding it hard to tempt Simao to white heart lane.
I have heard that Freddie Ljungberg is going to Juve
Charlton are trying to sign Billy jones, greg halford, zander diamond, Lee cook, ray jones and Billy Sharpe.
Rangers to sign kaka at the end of the season they also want bert konterman back as aid for centreal defense. Ally McCoist has decided to play again as Support for Kris boyd this is because they have sign David Wier Ally McCoist said and and I quote "if big davie can do it so cun a" also E'to is also planning a moove to Gretna if they succed promotion for 40 million pounds due to the rich owner
As a Spurs fan I am gutted that Davenport has gone 2 West Ham, it wil probably be 4 around 2 million. he has been on form l8ly and has been brill cover 4 Ledley, Gud luk Callum. However now he has gone we need 2 sign a decent centre half, I like the looks of Rocha from Benfica, he is valued at 5 mill and can play newhere along the back, he could solve our left back problems aswel as cover at the centre. Also we have been linked with Davies but I think we wil b payin 2 much 4 a defender that wil not be playing al lthe time, the same 4 Richards. However there have been very strong links with Ashley Young and I can confirm that he wil sign in the next week for a fee between 7.5-9 mil. We wil not let a centre half go with the deal now we only hav 3/4.
Whether Jose Mourinho stays at Chelsea or not, Roman Abramovich will force the changes at Stamford Bridge this summer. Khalid Boulahrouz, Carlo Cudicini, Joe Cole, Arjen Robben, Geremi, Lassana Diarra and Paulo Ferreira will all be sold for one reason or another, but flop Ukrainian striker Andriy Shevchenko will remain in West London and fight for his place. Salomon Kalou will move elsewhere on a season long loan to gain more experience, while Shevchenko and Didier Drogba will be competing with Antonio Cassano for a starting berth. Cassano is out of favour at Real Madrid and would welcome a move to Premiership champions Chelsea.
David Beckham to switch to Brooklyn Wanderers after a season at LA Galaxy.
Syllvester Stallone was apparently offered a goal keeper position at Everton after promoting his new film (which is rubbish) at Goodison Park last week. Also Dixie Day (whoever that is) is also coming to Everton FC.
Graham Sounness is to take control of Wolves, reports say they are wild and hairy but they think he is the man for the job.
Henrik Larrson to tranfer to Bristol Rovers at end of season on trade for Paul Trollope.
Sven-Goran Eriksson to be taken on by Tottenham FC, an inside man reveals that Martin Jol is preparing to leave at the end of the season and the chairman wants someone even more incompetent to take his place for next season.
My cousin is a youth playerd for Leeds and as he was finishing training he seen Alan Smith with his agent! This is not a joke , Smith is surplus to reauirments at United due to , Rooney , Saha , Larsson , Ole Gunner and Probably FERNANDO TORRES! in the summer . The Fee is believed to be around 3.75 Million.
Adebayor is not going any where get things straight..... Adebayor has been brought to Arsenal to strengthen the team and not for money investments. has becoming a complete player at Arsenal. the only time you will see adebayor go is when he flops in Kanu's steps when Arsenal offered him £1m pounds to just leave. Adebayor will stay! truss.
Aliadiere is not going anywhere. aliadiere is starting to regain form for the gunners that he lost ever since his long term knee injury in 2004. if aliadiere goes out on loan any more he is gona become a flop. trust have faith and take things east from linking them away from Arsenal THE arrival for summer is baptista swap 4 reyes and possibly ljungberg or money for buffon and may be 2 or 3 other signings for the senior team some youth players may join the youth system. exit in the senior team are Lauren and some on loan players at Birmingham and else where.where thay cannot fight for first team spot against world class players. apart from all that everyone else is staying at Arsenal
I have it on good authority that Arsenal will gain the services of Gianluigi Buffon.
Big rumours on Zimbabwe wonderkid, Mabowza Ritchie, Ajax have finally said they will make a move for the Ajax capetown starlet. Reading along with Sheffield Utd are locked in battle to capture the signing of 21 year old Vietnamise international Huyu Hai Ding. The striker has bagged 29 goals in 34 games for club side Urawa Reds.
Mark my words... I am a good friend of David Dein the Arsenal director who has told me that since Ronaldinho in unhappy at Barcelonalona they are going to make a 35m bid for him in the summer.

I'm a waiter at a top restaurant in Liverpool and yesterday served Thierry Henry, Rick Parry, Rafa Benitez, and Steven Gerrard. At one point I overheard them joking about who was going to be captain!
Thierry Henry spotted with Liverpool chief exec Rick Parry,Manager Rafa Benitez and club captain Steven Gerrard going into a very posh restaraunt in Liverpool. Dont know whether he is going to sign for Liverpool or it was just a social thing. They made a pretty sharp exit though at the end of the meal.

Chelsea will sign Ronaldinho from Barcelona on Friday for £60 million
David Beckham to move on loan back to Manchester United until his transfer to LA. He sees this as his last chance to return to top class form and get back into the England squad.
Also, look for Tim Cahill to arrive as a long term replacement for Scholes for 9M near the end of the window if he returns to fitness by then, otherwise he will come mid summer.
sourced from a Merseyside press contact...Lucas Neill has priced himself out of a move to Liverpool...Neills excessive demands have made it impossible for the move to take place and other options will now be explored by Mr Benitez...seesm some people put money above ambition
ive heard that Mr ferguson is keeping a close eye on kieron dyer and could make a move in the summer

Whilst attending the Leicester Fulham game I overheard a journalist talking to a club official. The word is that Kelly will be kept as manager until the end of the season when his position will be reviewed.

Once again I would like to apologise for my false rumour, the date for the St. Andrews massacre is now 20th January. Enjoy
Just saw on the rumours Lucas Neill to West Ham who will be paying him 125k AU$ a week!
I have used this site for a while now and feel that although it is a great site to see all the transfer speculation it could be ten times better if people did look into things before posting there so called rumours. Alex of PSV to Chelsea for £13million very unlikely as Chelsea already own his registration,Gago from Boca Juniours to A.Villa for £8million not going to happen as he has signed for Real Madrid and has started last few games,Buffon to Arsenal also very unlikely because of the fact that he signed a extension to current deal before christmas, Lucas Neill to Liverpool now looks very unlikely due to the fact he has agreed terms with West Ham and Rafa also so saying if is taking so long to decide he doesn't want to play for them and also Darren Potter has left Liverpool and joined Wolves on a permanent deal.
I do not claim to no anyone or be involved with any clubs but here are rumours I have heard,Scott Brown and Kevin Thompson of Hibs have both said they want to join Celtic and with The Hoops stepping uo the effort to sign them it looks likely they will arrive this month.Current Inverness keeper Mark Brown will join Celtic.Rumours of Craig Beattie,Derek Riordan or John Kennedy leaving on loan or permanent deals are completely false with all 3 players wanted by the manager and also committed to the club.
Last minute attempt by the Dons to highjack Killie's loan deal for Rocco Quinn

Dubai Consortium will own the club before the end of January, that's why Souness bid rejected.

My little brother is in at Rangers under 18ns and he trains with the 1st team occasionlay and he herd that Rangers are getting a £40 million cash injection and are beein bought over by Arab Sheek for arround 85 million and all the debts that they have will be cleard. The sheek has has been in several meatings with sir David Murray and the outcome looks good he wishes Walter Smith to stay on as manager. The sheek has 8 majour transfers in-mind who will be KaKa, C.Ronaldo, Buffon, fat Ronaldo (who will be bpught on the cheep) , Drogba and the other are to be kept a secret. As the signing of David Wier has been made by Rangers, Rangers striker coach "supper" Ally McCoist has made the decision to play again he announced on Wednesday by saying "if Davie cun dae it so cun a"

Everton are supposedly hot on the tail of England under 21 starlet midfielder John Welsh. Reports from a Everton source suggested that the tough tackling midfielder is just the kind of player David Moyes is after after failing to secure the signing of Joey Barton this January.
Although it would take around £3 million to prize him away from Hull City.
I have also heard that local lad Jason Koumas could make the move back to Merseyside from West Brom in a £2.5 million pound deal.
First of all I want to say that CHelsea, yes Chelsea will not make any big signing in January window..they are busy with their internal problems...only one signing can be seen and that is Tal Ben Haim...No other signing but Trezeguet is a possibility...

Kaka will come to madrid
Ronaldinho will go to Milan..
Emerson will return to Juventus in a cut price..
Trezeguet will come to either Chelsea or Man Utd.
Alexander pato will go to Milan.

i saw on here the other day somebody wrote they knew Gary lewin and said David trezeguet would be joining Arsenal , my father works with his aunty or neice or whatever and I always get inside info on Arsenal transfers and how players are getting on etc. I would have been informed if trezeguet had had a medical and why the hell would Arsenalneed another forward ? with henry, van persie, baptista, adebayor , aliadiere and walcott soon to be converted that rumour was 100% UNTRUE.
I have heard a more realistic rumour that Rangers are on the verge of signing Jim Hamilton from Dunfermline for 50K

Other rumours floating around Vicarage Road include: Robbie Fowler on loan from Liverpool,
Pu Rapid Min - The Hong Kong international "speed demon" currently at Yokohama FC in Japan.
All from a very reliable source with inside information at Vicarage Road.
i'm not sure what it is|? maybe you just don't truly understand football but the person who said that West Ham will basically buy a whole new team this transfer window is obviously been let out of hospital too early. if you understood football you would know that it takes a while for players to gel so that is why teams generally only buy a few players at a time so they can intergrate into the squad. you also said that Scott parker would join West Ham, have you seen the premiership table recently and where Newcastle are in contrast to West Ham, he is club captain at Newcastle and arguably their most important player. so would he change that so he could play for a club that will be in the championship next season.
My girlfriend works at the Press Association and has just rung me to say that Ron Atkinson has been in discussions with Coventry City about their managerial position for the last 2 weeks. Big Ron is desperate to rebuild his reputation within the game. Following the sacking of Adams on Wednesday, BRyan Richardson, the chairman, finally arranged a face to face meeting with Atkinson yesterday following on from several secret telephone calls. When Mr. Bean arrived for the meeting at the hotel, Richards soon realised that he had in fact been talking with Rowan and not Ron. Habibi
High places have speculated the return of Muzzy Izzet back to LEICESTER CITY as part of the coaching staff. Local LEICESTER people commented that IZZET'S heart had always been at the club.
LuCASH Neil will not be joining Liverpool as he is too greedy to realise that West Ham are going down.
Heard at the Fulham/Leicester Match - Milan Mandaric's first act on taking control of Leicester City will be to sign Spanish Defender Manuel Pablo. He fits the profile of the player I expect to see wearing the shirt of LCFC, Milan was heard to say plenty of experience and with the ability to progress with the club as it aims to return to the Premiership where it rightly belongs.
Hamilton Accies Jamie Mcarthy to Chelsea!
curbs 2 sign LUCAS NEILL (1.25M+KONCHESKY), MATTHEW UPSON (6M) ,PAPA BOUBA DIOP (6M+ETHERINGTON) ,ZOLTAN GERA (5.5M), KEPA BLANCO (LOAN) ,DARREN BENT (5.2M+HAREWOOD&MULLINS).

Expect former Hibernian under 21 coach Jim Laucher to be announced as the new Coventry manager as Micky Adams was sacked. Also from a good source, Jack Goff is set to be named as the new Kilmarnock youth coach.
Big rumours for Portsmouth. Croatian hitman Iva hardeh is set to be thrilled at Pompeys interest in him. His present club Zagreb, have seen off competition last summer for his services. A host of Italian and French clubs were said to have put forward a bid including Nantes, who had a 2.8m bid rejected. Hardeh who has bagged over 20 goals which have caught the eye of Pompey. Who are keeping close tabs on on Hardeh as PSV and Ajax are set to battle to lure Kanu from fratton park. The Dutch duo are beleived to offer Kanu a luctrative 3 year deal.
James Beattie seen in Glasgow possibly in talks with Rangers with a view to a loan deal. Jeremy Clement to follow mentor PLG to Paris, leaving Smith to snap up Paul Hartley and Scott Brown.
Rangers are closing in on the signing of Lee McCulloch. Late on Wednesday night, Rangers tabled a new improved bid of around £1m for McCulloch after the previous bid of £750,000 was knocked back being viewed as ridiculous. Lee McCulloch WILL hand in a transfer request if the £1m bid is knocked back and expect him to move in the next few days for a 'meet half way' offer of around £1.2m seeing as Wigan want around £1.5m.
Alan Gow WILL sign for Rangers in the next few days as well. Rangers are waiting for him to return with the FalKirk team from a 4 day break. Rangers will field a much improved take it or leave it offer of £250,000 to get him now, if FalKirk knock this back it WILL be down to Hughes stated his case for the last time. Rangers will then sign him up on a pre-contract.
Scott Brown is next up, but he will only be saught if Clement moves to PSG. Rangers WILL not pay more than £2m for his signature though.
Ehiogu WILL not sign for Rangers, his signature is not a priority and his demands are too much for Rangers who are only willing to pay him £15k maximum per week on a 12 month deal.
My friend Gianpablo has informed me that Carlos Kameni will be signing for AC Milano over the January period. Being a good friend of Tony Dorigo he has excellent contacts in calcio...
It is common knowledge that Robinho will be making his way to Torino to replace Pavel Nedved once Juve are promoted.
It is also understood that Joan Laporta has targeted Rino Gattusso to solve Barcas midfield conundrum, with a Ronaldinho part exchange mooted. 35mill + rino is likely scenario.
Gianpablo also knows that Freddie ljungberg is a known target of the Rossonerri...
His wide skills are thought to attract the club...
Ancelotti may survive but coach Spalletti has been mooted as a replacement.
I live in South Africa and rumours going around are that Manchester United have been monitoring the progress of a player in South Africa since the pre-season tour. This player is beleived to be Suprise Moriri from Mamelodi Sundowns. He is a centre-attacking midfielder who is the South African player of the year, and even scored a goal from the halfway against Free-State Stars earlier in the season. Remember, only a rumour. Red Devils to win the treble MoPaRK
Robbie Fowler is not going anywhere. LFC are funding him to do his coaching tickets and stay on in a coaching role.
West Ham United have been the busiest club during this month's transfer window, and perhaps unsurprisingly they will continue to spend their money. Following the signings of Luis Boa Morte, Nigel Quashie and Calum Davenport, as well as the imminent arrival of Lucas Neill from Blackburn, boss Alan Curbishley is targeting two of his former players at Charlton. Andy Reid and versatile midfielder Radostin Kishishev could be poised to move to Upton Park and any deals involving the two could be completed before the end of the week.
not really a rumour, just a fact.
Carshalton utility man Paul Austin is available to Watford for an undisclosed fee. He is beleived to have a BIG future. He is allowed to play for England or Greece, and is likely to opt for the latter.
a mystery premiership club have made £25 million bid for Fernando Torres, howvever is is highly likley it was Manchester United. atletico president has however revealed they have turned it down. he said he was in their plans strategically. United are belived to try again with a cash plus heinze offer. if this is rejected they will more likley get him in the summer when he has less time on his contract, therefore £25 mill will be good to turn down. United will get hargreaves in the summer. Bayern will refuse to sell him in January because they are desperatly short in midfield and have little time to get cover. other United target nani is reportedly close to signing a 2yr extension to his contract at sporting lisbon
Aston Villa will sign Ashley Young (£8m)on Friday, leaving Baros (£3m) to go to Lyon with John Carew (Part Exchange) coming to Villa Park. Reo-Coker is discussing a loan move to Villa with a view to a permenant move (£6m) in the summer. Bellamy (£7m) , Wright Phillips (£12m) , Reo-Coker (£6m) and Micah Richards (£14m) will all join in the summer a few more additions to cover the out going players. The Richards deal sounds far-fetched but Villa are his boyhood club and he believes they can fulfill his dream of playing in the Champions League. Watch This Space!
So Luton stole Spring from under our noses.Mark is not happy I can tell you! Forest will now go after Bircham from QPR and Cohen from Yeovil.Expect a signing on Friday and 2 more next week. Dan

I work with Lorn Gibson formerly of Morton and Clyde and I have it on good authority that Walter Smith (who is a long term admirer) has made enquiries regarding his status and could be ready to make an incredible swoop for him before the window shuts
I heard that Liverpool is going to bid for Riquelme as Villareal wants to get rid of him before the end of January.
according to my mate who lives in Spain, rumours are that Man Utd have signed Fernando Torres. however when he goes I.e in the summer or January is up to Torres himself. apperantly he wants to go in the summer to give himslef chance to say goodbye to the fans. United are happy with this because they feel they have adequate cover until the end of the season. United have acted quckly becasue Chelsea, Milan and juve have all registered there interest recently, after his form has improved. so United splashed £27 million to secure his sevices. my mate heard this on a spanish radio station, however it was a station biased towards real, and it could just be them unsettling there fierce rivals
juan roman riquelme has been offered a huge 4 year pay packet to play in saudi arabia, after he has fallen out of favour at villareal. however Inter Milan are very interested in the talented midfielder
javier saviola will sign for Juventus according to international team mate and fellow Juventus target javier mascherano

Trezeguet to join in either swap deal with Crouch or join outright with Fowler either retiring or joing a smaller club.
The BIG RUMOURS Ribery to join as part of cash plus Cisse deal this will be unveiled after the takeover deal is finalised and he will join in the summer. This was why he ddid not join Arsenal or Bayern or Real Rafa has him set as the right sided player that he wants to use for the future.
