Editorany news on coventry city, any strikers linked? {editor's note – I have not heard of any sorry.}

 

19 Jul 2010 22:17:32
Expect bids for sheff wed's lee grant from celtic, west brom and qpr this week.
also there will be bids for marcus tudgay from burnley and again west brom.
if successful bid for tudgay then wednesday will try to prise jordan rhodes from huddersfield.
_
Grant and Tudgay are both likely to go, but dream on if you think Sheff Weds could get Rhodes.

In response 'Maggie' says:
Grant has said he is happy at SWFC and is stopping (Tudgay also). However, money talks but it would need to be serious money. Tudgay and Grant on very long and well paid contracts.

SWFC have a full complement of strikers so Tudgay would have to leave to allow Wednesday to bring in another. We are more interested in another defender Mawene from PNE?

I am not dreaming that our goalkeeping coach at SWFC is Andy Rhodes yep, Jordan's old dad. Blood is thicker than underestimating the pulling power of a 'sleeping giant' not my words 'real' football people's words, including Neil Warnock (a raging Blade!)

 

19 Jul 2010 22:19:24
Newcastle have got Benjani training with them on Tuesday . And if all is well he will sign a 2year deal worth 15000 aweek.

 

19 Jul 2010 22:20:06
Just a whisper but west ham may offer 7 mil for zamora, can anyone else confirm this

 

19 Jul 2010 22:20:50
I follow Ryan Babel on Twitter on my phone and the other day he was asking people to post up were they thought he was going for holiday. One guy posted "fulham, blackberry or arsenal" and his reply was " I'll visit them next season with Liverpool" I know its not a rumour but make of thus what you will

To the Forest fan who says "David Wheater to Forest for 2.5m" yeah dream on, he ain't going nowhere.
As for Boro, strong rumours about Tarmo Kink from Gyori ETO for about 350k.

Of course he's going nowhere he is at boro they'll be stuck in the championship forever.

he does infact want to play in the premier league for a certain north east team who play in black and white.

Why would Newcastle want Wheater ? He's easily turned by a quick forward and is nothing more than a big lump who would struggle big time in the EPL.

Glasgow Rangers

What your source Guzman was a £12 million transfer target for Arsenal in 2008.Dont think Rangers could afford his wages?

Heard the Riordian rumour before but don't see him leaving Hibs

A lad who works for a newspaper in glasgow, i never said he would sign just that he was to be shown round ibrox and murray park, i don't know if there is much behind it but he is normally right, brett holman looks 99.9 certain to join on loan as no other club has taken an interest in him and az want rid.
The Riorden rumour has been around for a while but if he gets a crack at the champions league he may be tempted, dunno what the rangers fans would think of it thou

oldbhoy

 

19 Jul 2010 21:36:08
To the lad who posted the "injury angle" is being used in terms of sasa papac , that is utter nonsense as my uncle is the rangers doctor and sasa papac has severe brusing to the knee and will not be taken purely through precaution fact

 

19 Jul 2010 21:39:19
To the person who said a bookies have stopped taking bets on gerrard moving, well that a wrong decision ! name your source beacause it's bullst,
i can assure you my source is better than yours 100%
he isn't moving but £1000 on if the bets are that good !

19 Jul 2010 21:39:20
Bristol City are still trying to work a deal with Stoke for Kitson. Wages are the blockage and while Stoke won't lower their valuation, City can't offset the wages with a signing on fee to compensate. But they aint giving up easily and a deal may yet happen.

Ed, do you have any newcastle rumours? {editor's note – nothing new today mate, sorry.}

 

19 Jul 2010 21:57:08
Why do people say bellamys going to celtic..it aint gonna happen, just like gattuso isn't going to rangers.but david heally will be a gers player for start of season, hutton maybe.

 

19 Jul 2010 21:59:36
I am an annoyed man utd fan at the min bcz if fergie thinks we can win the league without strengthening is ridiculous chelsea won the league last season and thy will be strengthening this season so we really don't stand a chance there only becoming older and older. ED do u hav any news plz {editor's note – I haven't heard anything since the bid for Ninis, I would expect you to wait and see what Ozil's situation is, if you have enough money to spend.}

 

19 Jul 2010 22:00:41
This is for everyone who thinks a player dose not do training when there injured is rubbish . Every player has to workout even if injured . So dan gosling may have been training with Newcastle. And ed do you have some news on Newcastle transfers. {editor's note – nothing new today sorry.}

Editor have you got any news on transfer activity at barnsley. thanks. {editor's note – nothing new sorry.}

 

19 Jul 2010 21:21:37
I hoper youre right can i ask if you have a sorce for Nevas as now we have cole and jovanic(Spelling) where would he go although id say Joe Cole in the hole and push gerrard back and let him pull the strings, things are looking good, also expect to hear of liverpool going for Conner Wickham in a 6m signing. Also if the club takeover is complete before the window shuts marquee signing Augero( Heres hoping)

Quigz23

also expect to hear of liverpool going for Conner Wickham in a 6m signing, Who does he play for then? If you mean Connor Wickham of ITFC. Even so it's a bit far fetched as a rumour.Why? Its well documented that
1)His father (also his agent) says he will be going nowhere for at least 2 years
2) Ipswich have alledgedly set a fee of £10M
3) Spurs have had a bid for £8m turned down
4) Wickham himself does not want to move

At least your accurate on the Joe Cole bit! Good signing

 

19 Jul 2010 20:55:31
Updates at the CG today. The Forest team arrived back to news that the 1st signing has been done & will be announced Tues/Weds. Its not a leftback though.
Pratley is becoming unhappy with resolving his wages for his move, similar to Majewski in January. He has no other offers yet but can wait. Shorey would sign but there's not enough on the table to tempt him, so hes waiting to see who else comes in.
Contrary to rumours BD and ND have not had showdown talks. ND is looking to get more involved on some deals as he did last year (eg Blackstock). He hopes this will quieten down the fiery Glaswegian but who knows if that's possible?
Finally the TP are after 3 as yet unconfirmed Prem players, all of whom have expressed an interest in joining should BD STAY! I guess that's up in the air until later this week. BD currently has a "show me don't tell me" stance and wants at least 2 players at the CG before the end of the week.

19 Jul 2010 21:09:59
Any coventry city rumours?!?!

 

19 Jul 2010 21:14:12
Roy Hodgeson is rumoured to be looking at trying to get Riise back to Liverpool. This would fill the LB position which Hodgeson claimed is a priority to sort out this summer with Insua/Dossena gone.

Man City have had a £20m bid turned down from Inter Milan for Mario Balotelli. Inter have a £30m price tag on Balotelli but City are rumoured to try another £20m bid with Robinho involved in the deal.

SAF is backing Dimitar Berbatov to shine this season.. good luck with that gaffer! lol

 

19 Jul 2010 20:48:09
PNE LATEST

Carl Dickinson will arrive at deepdale on wednesday or thursday to undergo a medical.fee rumoured to be around 500k+.

PNE have also agreed a fee of around 200k+ for wycombe winger Matt Phillips who will complete his move depending if he returns from englands u19 european championships.

Manager Darren Ferguson is waiting for Nicky butt's decision to accept a player/coach role at Preston but face a battle from blackpool.

Also a pacey striker comes in the mind with strikers Aaron mclean, Gary hooper, Charlie austin and franck nouble on their hitlist.

Possible line up next season

Lonergan

Jones St ledger Morgan Dickinson


Gray Butt Coutts Phillips


Mclean Nouble

Arsenal are looking at taking advantage of the financial and managerial situation at Ajax by snatching Rodney Sneijder (Wesley's younger brother)

 

19 Jul 2010 20:50:08
Re "Sky are reporting that Newcastle are on the verge of signing Dan Gosling on a 4 year deal. Just thought I'd let the west ham/liverpool/everton fans know this, who are all 100% sure gosling will sign/resign for them."

I don't think any Everton fans would welcome him resigning after the way he has acted. Apparently he wanted guaranteed first team football in centre midfield. Well, maybe at Newcastle. He was about 4th or 5th choice last season behind Arteta, Pienaar, Rodwell, Fellaini and Cahill. Then there's also Osman and Heitinga. Don't get me wrong, he's a decent prospect, but surely he can't believe he's that good.

Is he likely to pass any medical before the trannsfer window closes anyway?

 

19 Jul 2010 20:51:28
Strong roumers coming out of Italy this afternoon claimed that Manchester City were on the verge of Signing Ballotelli. His agent has since claimed that talks have been put on hold. This is due to a Manchester Utd delegation arriving in Milan in a desperate bid to force through a transfer. Sir Alex Ferguson rates Ballotelli and will try everything in his power to make this transfer happen. If successful expect an announcement early next week. Ballotelli is desperate to move to UTD as he believes he would have more first team opportunities which is understandable with all Citys fire power, however his agent is keen for the city deal to take place as he believes they will (understandably) get a better deal.

 

19 Jul 2010 20:32:36
Ive just been told by a very good friend that FOREST have signed 3 players but for some strange reason its being kept very hush hush?? The guy that told me lived in the meadows area of nottingham an went to school with some of the current forest players i do no that he still gets tickets from them as ive been asked to go to matches with him before ( comp tickets ) but he doesn't no why the players have been sworn to secrecy ?? he did say one of the new players was either on loan last season or coming on loan ?

 

19 Jul 2010 20:36:54
Liverpool have entered the race to sign Conor Wickham from Ipswich after Roy Hodgson denied Loic Remy was a transfer target and admitted his interest in the 17 year old who it says on wikipedia is a massive Liverpool fan I don't know if this is true but if it is then I can see Wickham holding out for a move to Liverpool.

 

19 Jul 2010 20:48:03

"19 Jul 2010 18:25:49
NOTTM FOREST NEWS: James Beattie has been seen at the City Ground today, according to a friend of mine."

Yes. Because forest need a seventh striker.

Why bother? At least make up believable things.

 

19 Jul 2010 20:23:53
Arsenal only wanted Joe Cole so they could have another Englishman, because if both Campbell and Simpson leave and Wilshire goes out on loan they will only have 7 Homegrown players.

Eduardo is set to leave for donesk this week and Wickham (£10, and because Wenger wants an Englishman). 1 More Centre back Mertesacker (15m). They wanted Jagielka but he was too expensive(and not as good as Mertesacker). Goalkeeper will be Stephane Ruffier (£6.25m) from Wengers former club Monaco where he has good connections


Any Arsenal news ED

To the editor . do u know anything about liverpool getting arda turan i think it will b a great player 4 us thanks {editor's note – he was being tracked before Hodgson became manager, I don't know if Hodgson will follow up the interest or not though.}

 

19 Jul 2010 20:11:08
Arsenal fans are so funny. They were bitching around two weeks about how great is Joe Cole and it will be fantastic to join Arsenal, some of these jokers claimed that Joe is 100% Arsenal player, but when he joined Liverpool those same people start to write bullst that they are so happy he didn't sign for Arsenal. What a pathetic dudes. I know it hurts, but don't spin your words only because he didn't sign for you.

Also, this is a rumor site, not forum, so give it a rest.

I heard that Loc Rmy is just journalistic fantasy, we are looking for left back.

 

19 Jul 2010 20:12:29
Craig Bellamy is set for a shock return to West Ham.

He has previously stated if he would leave City for any english side, it would be West Ham.

I agree with the guy who said bellamy is NOT at parkhead because he is in the states. But i can confirm that celtic are ready to sign bellamy for 5.5 million on 70 grand a week DEFFO. Also aiden will have to leave because we have tooo many simmilar players and lennon thinks we have had the best of him. PADDYBHOYX

LIVERPOOL NEWSBAR
I was in the bookies in liverpool earlier today, In 1 of the bookies they have stopped taking bets on Steve Gerrard moving and in Ladbrokes they are giving 7/2 and you have to name the club he is going to.
Surely with joe cole coming into the side today, does this mean the end for capt fantastic.
I have said before the world Cup, that stevie will be going to Real Madrid, is this to be the end of stevie and LFC.

 

19 Jul 2010 19:46:09
To the Celtic fantasist who claimed:

JUST IN!

just was at celtic park and seen bellamy arriving today for talks maybe?

The truth is: Craig Bellamy is in the USA with the City squad preparing to play Sporting on Friday.

The Voice has spoken


Here mate its actually MAN UTD that are in the USA going to play Sporting on Friday. Get your facts right.

Barnsley not after chris woods its reuben reid there after is advisors have already been to oakwell but there is other intrest

You had better be
A)Joking
B)Making this up.
14 appearances for Plymouth without a goal in return. Just the sort of marquee signing we would need!



Before anyone comments I meant Peterbro' rather than Plymouth. The brain thinks one thing the hands type something else!

 

19 Jul 2010 19:52:23
Regarding my source about Healy the full Sunderland squad is in preseason training in Portugal, but David Healy has travelled up to a tour of Scotland with the Sunderland reserves so he can have talks with Rangers, that he is in at the moment. Also heard from a reliable source that McCarthur is digging his heals in over a move to England as he is hoping on Smith to up his bid.

 

19 Jul 2010 19:52:27
James mcarthur to join wigan this week fot 1.5million. nae luck gers

 

19 Jul 2010 19:57:19
Here are some rumours:

Rangers to contact Rosenborg's agent over possible move. The will also approach ManU about Obertan and this will most likely be on loan with possible transfer.

Will also sign a striker and Goodwillie's name has been floating around but i reckon they will go for Leigh Griffiths.

James Mccarthur being linked with Rangers Wigan leeds and WBA out of those he will join either Rangers(boyhood heroes) or Wigan(to team up with Mccarthy) Cant see rangers going or him as we don't need a CM!

THAT "A GOONER" LAD MUST FEEL LIKE A RIGHT PLUM NOW JOE COLE HAS SIGNED FOR LIVERPOOL, APPARENTLY HIS SOURCES SAID ARSENAL WILL SIGN KOSCIELNY, JOE COLE AND GOURCUFF, WELL 1 OUT OF 3 AIN'T BAD, NOT QUITE THE MEATLOAF CLASSIC BUT STILL!


ED TELL THIS PLUM,
I SAID KOSCIENLY, CHAMAKH AND COLE.
2 OUT OF THREE AINT BAD.
I HAVE HEARD DIAKATE (WHOEVER HE IS) COULD BE COMING?

A GOONER.

ED GOOD LUCK WITH GOLE, BUT I DONT THINK WE NEEDED HIM, GOT PLAYERS LIKE HIM, AND LPOOL SELLING BENAYOUN, HE SHOULD BE GOOD FOR LPOOL. COLE IS A GREAT TALENT.


A GOONER

 

19 Jul 2010 20:07:52
With the addition of Cole to the Liverpool team it is almost certain Gerrard and Torres will be prepared to give the reds one more year to prove themselves. The signing of a left back is imminent, looking like Danijel Pranjic could be a target of Roy Hodgson. Another likelihood is Loic Remy, the current Nice attacker joining for in the region of £1012 million. These signings look to boost an already strong looking Liverpool team. With the sales of Riera, Babel, Ngog and Mascherano generating a nice looking £33 million + another decent signing seems to be likely to occur. I am only telling rumours that could occur, and am being realistic. A take over is also rumoured and with the way things are looking could be completed by the start of season. Things looking bright for Liverpool under Rooooyyy.

JOE COLE
just listen to all the sad arsenal and spurs fans who now claim they are glad cole has signed for liverpool as he is not good enough for their team.
yet a couple of days ago they were all claiming he would sign for them.what a bunch of tts.
personally i don't think he is worth the money it has cost us if the rumours a correct but we have to give him a chance to prove his worth.loic remy will sign in the next couple of days and so will jesus navas.

19 Jul 2010 19:41:25
I am posting this to the guy that says Celtic are gonna sign Lawrence, Murphy, James, Bellamy & Campbell & Bullard I really think you need to get your facts staright, Campbell & Bullard have already said they are not interested because the money is not there, Campbell is heading to Newcastle & as for Bullard maybe a championship side possibly Middlesborough & a mean Lawrence & Murphy cmon, I am a Rangers fan & if we had 12 million pounds to spend we wouldn't be going for useless has beens or players who arent even getting a game with their current club, Bellamy no chance why would he leave Man City a massive premier league side to come to Celtic a team who struggled to beat a 10 man San Jose side just the other day & really the cherry on the cake is David James, u just got rid of one useless lump of a goalie to bring in another one, go for it, with the ambition & eye for a player that Neil Lennon & his coaching staff have got the title is staying where it belongs, I really am confident that without Gers even spending a penny we can still retain the title, Cmon the gers.

Artur Boruc was 100 times better than Alan McGregor . Im a Portsmouth fan and i think Celtic could sign him. Murphy has already joined them and bellamy said he didn't want to play in the epl anymore so i think your just being bigoted.

Here mate Bullard will be signing this week. Your right about Campbell he will be going to Newcastle or Sunderland. And Bellamy said he will go to Celtic or Cardiff so i think he will go to Celtic as hey are the better team. So get your facts right you HN.

19 Jul 2010 19:41:26
Aberdeen FC to sign Lee Hendrie, Jon Macken, Paul Hartley and Robbie Williams by the end of week, don't expect any more of the trialists to get a deal as they are only making up the numbers in the preseason friendlies until these guys finalise their deals with the club then it all begins.
I am a Dundee Utd fan here with some good knowledge of whats happening at pittodrie cos of my family connection within the club.

 

19 Jul 2010 19:43:22

Nottingham Forest News
Davies is expected to put in a combined bid of £7Million to tottenham for Goalkeeper danny Button, Danny Rose on loan, Kyle Naughton and Kyle Walker and to take phil jones on loan from Blackburn Rovers, David Wheater from Middlesborough for £2.5 Million and Matt Derbyshire from olymacios for £2 Million the purchase of these players will be funded by the sale of Chris Cohen to Bolton for £5 Million no less and already departed James Perch who left for an estimated £2 Million pounds other transfer targets of Davies are Gary Hooper from Scthorpe and Dan Gosling and Robert Koren who are both currentley a free agents and marc albrighton from aston villa for £1 Million
Good times to come at Forest
_
Phil Jones doesn't need to go on loan when he can make the Blackburn squad.
Wheater is more likely to go to the PL, IF he actually leaves
Dan Gosling would go to a PL team too.

 

19 Jul 2010 19:18:07
Well done Kopites.
Cole went to the only club that can utilize his skills on a regular basis. A very good signing for you. Arsenal don't need another same type player, we have enough of them that do not produce on a regular basis.
I am certain that Frey is our g/k target and, the defender we will sign is anybody's GUESS. Although, I do expect Wenger to splash out on the right player (s).
Cesc to remain for AT LEAST one more season, and this will give time for Ramsey to recover and get fit. Who knows, with Maureen at Real, maybe the Barca will not seem so attractive after being trophless at the end of next season?
Liverpool will, without doubt spend again before the season starts, and Arsenal, minus the deadwood, Silvestre, Gallas, Senderos and HowlMunia will do better again this season. We were only defeats, at home to the top two that stopped us winning Premiership last season.

 

19 Jul 2010 19:18:15
Not a rumour but anybody who saw the last game between Man City Spurs had to notice the handshake between Bellamy and Redknapp
I will be amazed if Bellamy isn't playing for spurs next season

Expect bids for sheff wed's lee grant from celtic, west brom and qpr this week.
also there will be bids for marcus tudgay from burnley and again west brom.
if successful bid for tudgay then wednesday will try to prise jordan rhodes from huddersfield.

Grant and Tudgay are both likely to go, but dream on if you think Sheff Weds could get Rhodes.

 

19 Jul 2010 19:24:27
Sasa Papac and Andrius Velicka have been left out of the squad that's going with Rangers to Australia, the Injury angle is getting used. But in reality these two have been left behind as there contract has only a year left on it, and Rangers are keen to move them on as soon as possible.

Expect these two players to be the latest to leave Ibrox in the coming weeks. As for Kenny Miller Sunderland are keen to sign him with a possibility of David Healy going the other way.

 

19 Jul 2010 18:50:12
Rowan Vines agent has been in touch with Leeds to try and engineer a move for Vine as he has been told by QPR he has no future, Leeds are looking at 2 other options so the deal looks unlikely.

Leeds are also in talks with Gavin Macann at Bolton and Darrel Russell has had a few meetings with Leeds but has other options.

Are Liverpool interested in signing Keith Andrews? I have heard they are, the likelihood of this has surely been decreased by the introduction of Cole. Also heard they are looking at Duff? Is any of this true or is it just drivel?

 

19 Jul 2010 18:58:42
Reading some of the things on here from leeds and west ham fans is laughable. Dan Gosling has already signed for Newcastle and has been seen training with the team in Dublin, he will be announced next week with De Guzman Juan Albin and yohan benalouane. Yohan will be signed for cover as their is concerns after Taylors injury who will sign a new contract along with carroll and krul, Smith won't be leaving newcastle he wants to end his career at SJP. So my message to leeds and west ham fans ( the most deluded in the world ) please stop giving us your dream team and accept reality .


Gosling is injured for another 4 months or so so how can he be seen training with anyone

Re. Masch/inter multiswap story
"Inter have allowed Liverpool to speak to the players' representatives but it is up to each player to decide if they are interested. It is not a done deal"

1) Who are the other 2 players?

2) If santon is as good as I'm led to believe and Inter are happy to let him go, why aren't half the top teams in Europe knocking on Inter's door?

The signing of Joe Cole to Liverpool is just the start Hodgson had (and has still got, despite landing two very good players in Coke & Jovanovic) £20m to spend and, add to this the c£4m from Insua and c£25m from Mascherano, will have funds just short of £50m.

Not all will necessarily be spent in the summer, as Hodgson knows who he wants and will not compromise Expect Bridge £6m Parker £12m James (free) Bent £10m

 

19 Jul 2010 18:19:55
"As a gooners fan im very glad joe cole has signed for liverpool as we have far better players in that position. but does this signing open the door for gerrard to leave?
arsenal to sign frey, mertersacker, ozil and possibly a striker to replace the departing eduardo."


I couldn't agree more.now Liverpool is saddled with another over priced & injury prone player in the twilight of his career. Good luck with that..ahem. Even Spurs realized Cole wasn't worth signing! As far as the Gunnersi think Ozil could be a possibility, the sudden turnaround by Werder is a wink to the team who has been courting Ozil the longest. I still hear that Subotic will be named as CB.

 

19 Jul 2010 18:20:25
I have a source who tells me rangers are to show jonathan de guzman round ibrox some time this week, he also told me that rangers have asked hibs about the availability of derek riordon, heard the one about gattuso but i would not read into that one to much, could be a probability next year but milan have him contracted to the end of the 2012 season.
Jose concalves is being tracked by cardiff and blackpool

ED we have been hearing all these rumours flying about man united are spending 20m on this player and 30m on that player who if any can you see manu most likely to buy {editor's note – it still seems like Ninis is favourite.}

 

19 Jul 2010 18:23:32
Right listen to this people manchester united like to leave it late and to have the last bid they will only sign 1 player in this transfer window and my guess its going to be a Ozil they will go for a bid in the last day like they did with berbatov they was planning and trying to get him all transfer window and at the last minute they placed a bid and if was to hard for berbatov and spurs to reufuse they will do this with ozil and werder bremen , they will make a bid they can't refuse.

man utd XI:

VDS
Rafael Rio Vidic Evra

Fletcher scholes/carrick

Ozil

Valencia Rooney Nani

Hargreaves will replace carrick & scholes when he is fit.

CELTIC


aiden mc geady will be leaving celtic by the end of this week and will be in birmingham this week for talks with both clubs. Samaras looks set for a move to spain as lenny thinks he will be better cashing in on him now. Paul Caddis is leaving to go on loan to Reading and Simon Ferry will be signing on loan for Hamilton.

Coming In

Craig Bellamy will speak to Celtic officals on Tuesday of next week as he is with Man City. Ivan Ramis is another that will be holding meetings with Neil Lennon and his backroom staff about signing for the club. Last but not least Celtic will make a move for Dos Santos of Spurs but it will be a loan deal

 

19 Jul 2010 18:09:03
Great news liverpool signing Joe Cole, even better when we can add another three gems.
Ironic this info is from a friend of former red Yossi !! Roy as we know will not stand in Mascherano's way if he wants to go.Inter will have to sacrifice Davide Santon & Rene krhin in return.No brainer if you ask me, both kids are the real deal.Also, a deal for Loic Remy is close.
Roy has really given all us fans a boost, with a proposed takeover on the horizon, things are on the way up!!

Liverpool big signing this summer will be arda turan for 14million pounds(kenny daglish has told purslow that arda is too good a player to miss out on). He will were No.11 as reira is off to Olympiakos for 4million. He will play right wing which may allow dirk kuyt to make a move to bayern munich.

not sure who else is coming in but we have definetly not been taken over just YET! Summer budget is around 3540mil

19 Jul 2010 17:42:58
To the "Celtic players friend" this is a rumour site so no need for bigotry

Celtic WONT be signing Campbell , Bellamy or Keane

Rangers to sign 3 cheap players in the next few weeks and will use youngsters to RETAIN the SPL next season

PS , Gattuso has already stated that when the time if right he would gladly play for rangers again WITHOUT A CONTRACT.

 

19 Jul 2010 17:45:26
Sky are reporting that Newcastle are on the verge of signing Dan Gosling on a 4 year deal. Just thought I'd let the west ham/liverpool/everton fans know this, who are all 100% sure gosling will sign/resign for them. Any other Newcastle news?

Steve Bruce thought he had perfected his team until he had to let Lorik Cana leave.

He looked over his team after that and decided he needs to replace Cana and needs another forward player, either a striker or someone who sits behind the striker.

Stephen Ireland would cost around 10 million so he is instead in early negotiations with Harry Redknapp over a deal with Jamie O'Hara as Redknapp doesn't think that he will be part of his plans and doesn't need him on the wage bill.

Bruce was going to bid for Wellbeck but Fergie is only interested in loaning him out so Bruce has lost interest.

Bruce will either try and sign Salvador Cabanas again (he almost did in January but then Cabanas was shot) or he will put a bid in for either:
Ross McCormack 3 million
Dzagoev 8 million
Nugent 3 million
Rodallega 8 million
most likely rodallega because even though these are all good deals Rodallega has proved himself in the premier league better than Nugent

Also now that Fletcher has left Burnley they are consideriong buying Anthony Stokes from Hibernian as Fletcher came from Hibs and was they're best striker they're so Laws believes another Hibs striker could do the job. Stokes and Riordan are the top dogs at hibs but Stokes is young and Riordan is a nasty piece of work (the Scottish Bellamy) so Stokes could be on hibs way for around 11.5 million. Failing this they will go after Shane Long of Reading or Gary Hooper of Scthorpe as well as a new keeper which is badly needed.

ps any transfer rumours about David Wotherspoon, Scott Brown, Darren Bent, or Jordan Henderson there my favourite players and haven't heard anytihng but would like to know if they may be off soon in the future?

19 Jul 2010 17:55:34
Leicester City are making shock moves in order to boost up their striking options with a 750k move for Luke Varney. Varney is a Leicester fan and has already stated in the past he would love to make a move to the Walkers Stadium. But they are suprisingly making a move for Robert Earnshaw with a bid of 1.5m rising to 2m. These two could go through as Paulo Sousa is a follower of both.

I'm not making this up, I'm a reading fan but I have always lived in Leicester and now work at the Walkers Stadium as the image collector for programs and overherd this information when I was in a meeting about the programs for next season.

THIS IS TRUE!!!!

 

19 Jul 2010 17:59:39
Arsenal to sign 1 more defender and goalkeeper for the summer, and get rid of silvestre and gallas.

i have a feeling the goalkeeper will be Igor Akinfeev, because his stock has decreased due to Russia's absence at the World Cup, and his lack of mention in the media.

for the defender, i am so clueless as to who is available and who Wenger wants, i can't even make up a rumour. But i'll say either Jan Verthonghen from Ajax or Christian Zapata from Udinese. also Havard Nordtveit will get first team games this year

 

19 Jul 2010 18:02:59

BLAIR DO YOU STILL THINK LIVERPOOL HAVE BEEN PURCHASED? JUST OVER £4m SPENT AND AROUND £13m MADE IN PLAYER SALES, IF THIS IS NOT A CASE OF "MUST SELL TO BUY" THEN I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS?

 

19 Jul 2010 17:36:03
"" Selling Eduardo could be part of the plan to bring in Ozil?? ""

OR THEY COULD HAVE JUST BEEN MAKING ROOM FOR CHAMAKH? YOU KNOW ONE STRIKER IN, ONE STRIKER OUT?

I HAVE BEEN SAYING ON HERE FOR MONTHS THAT EDUARDO WILL FETCH BETWEEN 56M, WHAT PLUMS YOU GOONS MUST FEEL NOW SAYING HE WILL FETCH BETWEEN 1014M! NOW DO YOU BELIEVE ME VELA WOULD COST AROUND 3M?

THAT "A GOONER" LAD MUST FEEL LIKE A RIGHT PLUM NOW JOE COLE HAS SIGNED FOR LIVERPOOL, APPARENTLY HIS SOURCES SAID ARSENAL WILL SIGN KOSCIELNY, JOE COLE AND GOURCUFF, WELL 1 OUT OF 3 AIN'T BAD, NOT QUITE THE MEATLOAF CLASSIC BUT STILL!

19 Jul 2010 17:14:42
Bellamy linked with Spurs for a fee of £3m yes £3m! now if Bellamy insists he would like a move outside the EPL, then surely Celtic can find £3m for the transfer and the wages freed up by Boruc, Keane leaving should cover his salary!!

redknapp is quoted today as saying that he fears he may be outpriced for bellamy as he doesn't want to pay more than 6m and that getting bellamy to drop down to spurs salary cap of 65k.

heres a hint mate city paid 14m for bellamy and pay him 90k a week. if he won't accept 65k a week to play in the epl and the champions league for spurs then he's never going to sign for celtic

stop reading the mirror mate

Loic remy could be the next signing of Liverpool during the week. According to NiceMatin(French Local Paper) They are just waiting for a written offer from Liverpool to close the deal. The Lad is thrilled to be a Liverpool player for the upcoming season, so let's hope he will be Roy's second signing, Because let me tell you he looks like a promising talent.

 

19 Jul 2010 17:30:38

19 Jul 2010 17:33:21
Toon were prepared to let Smith rejoin Leeds but Leeds cannot come up with nominal fee OR his wages even though he would have took a 75% cut! Gosling to sign for Toon this week, Campbell to sign ( why we want him only god knows) AND apparrently Ashley has made available the funds for Hughton to pay £14m for a striker who is on Arsenal, Man U and Liverpools radar, Not sure i believe that one like. Bellamy? I will drive him up here if there is any milage in that one

 

19 Jul 2010 17:34:33
Eduardo is being sold to make way for young conner wickham from ipswich although the price as i understand it is 10 million i have to admit i have not seen the boy play can anyone tell me is he worth it? Also expect to see deals tied up this week for mertasacker and handanovic finalising all transfer activity at the emirates

 

19 Jul 2010 17:35:26
Celtic..

Those who say bellamy is at parkhead etc or buying a house in glasgow is delusional. Realistically we are not going to sign him or Keane.

Lennon has other targets and is hoping to sign 3 more players. Campbell looks like set to move to either newcastle or sunderland as he already has a house there which will suit him perfectly. Bullard deal is dead.

Crystal palace have received NO offers from celtic for Speroni. Expect lennon to try to sign a striker and center half before the european deadline for registering players for qualifiers.

Also the skillful montenegran Stjepanovic impressed on trial last week and may be set to win a deal.

OUT: Samaras Hinkel McGeady (dependant on vauluation met)

In: Stjepanovic Ivan Ramis Liam Lawrence Big name striker using money from Mcgeady sale.

 

19 Jul 2010 16:52:11
Bellamy defo at celtic next season. Mcgeady sale to villa will pay for this but heskey not coming to slow for spl. Gattuso real poss or the snot in milans plans for future. also wot happening with goncalves any news editor

 

19 Jul 2010 16:54:38
Roy hodgeson has come out and said a left back is a top priority since insua and aurelio left liverpool. see bids for felipe (deportivo), coentrao (benfica), pranjic (bayern muchen) and Taiwo (marseille).
also i can see bids for honda (cska), remy (nice) and scharner (free agent) to be made very soon as hodgeson tried to sign honda and scharner while he was at fulham and rates them highley

 

19 Jul 2010 16:55:39
To the Celtic fantasist who claimed:

JUST IN!

just was at celtic park and seen bellamy arriving today for talks maybe?

The truth is: Craig Bellamy is in the USA with the City squad preparing to play Sporting on Friday.

The Voice has spoken

19 Jul 2010 14:44:12
As a gooners fan im very glad joe cole has signed for liverpool as we have far better players in that position. but does this signing open the door for gerrard to leave?
arsenal to sign frey, mertersacker, ozil and possibly a striker to replace the departing eduardo.

I see what your thinkin bout gerrard, but i think roys signed joe cole so hes got the option to play kuyt as a striker, not the fanciest goal scorer but will scrape a few in. ED any idea of the left backs woys lookin at?

Expect bids for sheff wed's lee grant from celtic, west brom and qpr this week.
also there will be bids for marcus tudgay from burnley and again west brom.
if successful bid for tudgay then wednesday will try to prise jordan rhodes from huddersfield.

Dont be silly mate. Qpr don't need grant. We have just signed Paddy kenny who is better than grant, we have cerny who is better than grant. Unless he wants to be 3rd choice keeper your rumour is wrong.

 

19 Jul 2010 17:06:45
Celtic news regarding Paddy McCourt and the link to Blackpool.

Neil Lennon has confirmed that Celtic have offered a contract extension to Paddy McCourt, which he is considering. This comes following interest for Paddy from Blackpool.

This is not to say he won't go to Blackpool. He may be lured there if they're promising him first team football, which is something he's been unable to get at Celtic. However this is more down to Paddy's fitness than just being left out. He's simply an impact player for us who, on his day, has the talent to unlock any defence but can't play a full 90 minutes and very seldomly appears in 2 games in a row.

Celtic seem to be showing some faith in him though as reportedly the extension offered to him is a 2 year contract and Lennon has stated that he'd like Paddy to stay.

Birmingham City have made an offer for AZ Alkmaar striker Moussa Dembele.

The Daily Mail says Brum are to step up their pursuit of AZ's Dembele by tabling a £5m bid for the Belgian international.

Manager Alex McLeish has held transfer talks with Birmingham's owner Carson Yeung during City's Far East tour and is planning to make up to four more new signings.

Birmingham City are setting their sights on a move for Juan Roman Riquelme, according to Sky Sports News.

The 32yearold, who has been linked with a move to West Ham United this summer, is out of contract after ending his threeyear stay with Boca Juniors.

A move to West Ham now appears to be out of the question after the club reportedly failed to meet the player's personal terms.


Hope these go ahead, would be some good signings!

Any real news from Rangers? Would love Gattuso to sign but can't see how Rangers could afford his wages unless someone buys bougy! I read somewhere that walter smith doesn't want any loan signings either unless we have option to buy at the end of the season.

 

19 Jul 2010 16:38:20
19 Jul 2010 11:15:05
Ed or anyone else, is there any chance joe cole could end up back at west ham, iv heard a lot about it recently round here. {editor's note to be honest, nobody knows, it all comes down to the money on offer.}

he was actually offered more money at whu than liverpool, arsenal, spurs were offering..great signing 4 liverpool tho

loic remy is next on the agenda and nice are willing 2 accept 8.4 mill which whu have offered already but the french club want the money up front which whu havent offered

 

19 Jul 2010 16:38:38

yes

he went to shalke after he left chelsea he is a free agent now
=============================================

And at 34, he's too old for what SG wants at Leeds, and anyway, ageing Brazillians end up going to Garforth anyway lol

To those that think Alan Smith is being mooted, give over, not yet anyway (;
BUT, to those who think he'd never want to come back to Leeds to end his career, choosing to do that at Toon instead are far more deluded than a toon fan thinking that they'd win ANYTHING!

Re
"Davide santon is set to join Liverpool in a player plus cash deal involving Javier mascherano."

Its a nice thought, but seems unlikely (why would santon agree to the move, etc.n etc.)

Perhaps you have some substantiating information which you'd care to share with us?


yes i can inform that roy hodgson has grown tired of mascherano lack of respect towards him and will allow him to leave for the right money to inter milan and rafa benitez is willing to offer cambiasso or santon plus money. roy hodgson has identified left back has a priority so the deal will probably be 21million plus santon.

plus the reason santon has agreed to move as he was told that he will be a regular starter as opposed to warming the bench at inter.
well whoever wrote this must be on the glue as davide santon is right footed and plays as either a right back or right winger! duno wer abouts u heard that he's a left back..

 

19 Jul 2010 16:50:29
Now joe cole has completed his transfer to liverpool expect ryan babel to complete a mover to birmingham city for 8m.

 

19 Jul 2010 16:21:31
After speaking to martin bain at weekend and basically i was having ago about lack of activity with rangers signings he more or less said rangers will at most be bringing in bosmans or a loan after quizzing him on why we were led to believe we had 5 million to blow he said things had changed and walter will basically have to use the youngsters this season in our squad he also said if an offer comes in for anyone who has 1 year left they will be sold on as rangers are not in a position to offer contracts at moment so kenny miller is a real possibility he will be leaving also so a just want to let people know that all this gattuso nonsense is a definit no and goodwillie and whoever else would command a 2mill fee it will be at best a loan and a free transfer

 

19 Jul 2010 16:27:21
I am good friends of aiden mcgeady's cousin and my understanding of what i have been told is he has agreed to join aston villa for a fee of 7.25 million he has also been told by martin o'neil that he will be joined by robbie keane as keane has agreed terms and its just a fee to sort out i was also told tht bellamy was sounded out but man city want 68 million and he earns 80,000100,000 including wage and bonuses but spurs are also very keen and bellamy says he regrets not joining spurs and working under redknapp i was also told celtic are looking at a yugoslavian goalkeeper playing for red star just letting you know as this is what ive been told also my friend not long signed for middlesbrough andrew halliday and he told me of boyd signing also thomson i can tell you strachan wants more spl players but none are old firm players he wants craig conway of dundee utd and andrew driver of hearts but supposedly they are in advanced stages with conway but hearts are playing hardball with driver.

Anyway enough of that i am actually a rangers fan and what i have heard is that we will sign goodwillie he has made it known to dundee he wants to leave and rangers are where he wants to go and also andy webster has had a word in his ear to try push through the move i also know of 100% certainty that rino gattuso was at murray park last week training as he is back in scotland to visit it family he did tell smith that he was unhappy in milan and was not enjoying being theyre he is supposedly asking them to terminate his contract as a goodwill gesture and made it known to smith if this was succesful he would like to rejoin rangers on reduced terms he knows of the financial situation at rangers obv with his love of the club he keeps a close eye and will only join rangers if he can get his contract terminated or join for a reduced fee also my last thing ive heard are rangers have been offered danny welbeck on loan smith is mulling over this and will make a decision by the end of the week.

also a note for rangers fans we need new players i know but we are good enough to beat celtic they havent improved much who have they signed noone joe ledley is a good signing and will be a good player but is he better than davis thts a big fat NO we have our defence which conceded the least amount of goals in britsh football thomson is no big loss all tht worries me is replacing boyd but as celtic fans always point out boyd never scored against them so why shud we worry about him lets get behind the boys and make it 3iar.

 

19 Jul 2010 16:31:29
Looks like Chelsea are to miss out on all their big name targets.. With Ancelotti fending off any interest from Mourinho on Ashley Cole, that will rule out any possible deal with Kaka.
Carvalho is also stalling on any move out of Chelsea which will mean missing out on Porto's Bruno Alves.
Recently Ancelotti has said he isn't interested in Torres, but Chelsea were confident of getting him. But it's understood Hodgson has convinced Torres to give it one more year, especially with the three names (including Joe Cole) he told Fernando would be signed.
Chelsea will now rely on and bring through their academy players and try to sign just one more player, which according to sources will be 15M Mesut Ozil..

 

19 Jul 2010 16:31:59
To the guy who said "As a gooners fan im very glad joe cole has signed for liverpool as we have far better players in that position. but does this signing open the door for gerrard to leave? "

Hodgson has expressed his desire for both gerrard and torres to stay and has also spoken that joe cole is strictly a replacement for bennayoun who went in the opposite direction. Expect both to stay for at least 1 more year as madrid have said they are not prepared to pay £30 million for gerrard anyway.

Also Ed. any fulham rumours? I have heard robbie keane's name thrown about a bit due to Jol's appointment, any truth to this?

cheers, Beagle FFC for life {editor's note – it seems to be just paper talk, I wouldn't be surprised to see Fulham linked with a lot more players he has managed in the past before the end of the transfer window.}

Reading some of the things on here from leeds and west ham fans is laughable. Dan Gosling has already signed for Newcastle and has been seen training with the team in Dublin, he will be announced next week with De Guzman Juan Albin and yohan benalouane. Yohan will be signed for cover as their is concerns after Taylors injury who will sign a new contract along with carroll and krul, Smith won't be leaving newcastle he wants to end his career at SJP. So my message to leeds and west ham fans ( the most deluded in the world ) please stop giving us your dream team and accept reality .


HOW CAN DAN GOSLING BE TRAINING. HES OUT INJURED UNTIL AFTER CHRISTMAS YOU FOOL. GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT

Now that Mumbles has made his first White Elephant, sorry, Marquee, signing us Yizzles and the rest can breathe a little easier. I only deal in wet cement not concrete so it's whispers time again None other than Sulley 'Man Mountain' Muntari is blipping once again no clue on price, (maybe 12 milli?) but with everyone enraptured elsewhere 'Arrys got twitchty, er.. itchy fingers again to ring a ding ding the lad once more direct.

Now this one is a gem and murky from lurking in the shadows Emmanuel 'Strike A Blow For Freedom' Adebayor to WHL £14 milli be the opening gambit. After surviving the BBC's catering services together 'Arry and Ade bonded, and lets face it, the lad can play City are doing themselves no favours with this 'kid in a sweet shop mentality' players, even steady eddie's like G.B. need peace of mind it's like roaming the high seas in a gold plated canoe at C.O.M.S.

Maybe this next tip should be for banter, but it's a word of caution for you nomads down the road Wenger's done the impossible, and united a divided board in looking at him sideways with his pouting over Cesc. 4550 mil for Fab and on the table I mean he's good but.. It was rough on the lad not making it first time at La Maisa let him come home. Conversely, as Wenger goes all Maggie Thatcher, maybe it's in your rivals interests to keep him there a while longer. Still it's not like I'm windng 'you lot' up by suggesting WHL will be Gourcuff's new home not er..sorry the name of your Carpark escapes me!

PS does anyone know if Mascha, is 'definitely' going to Inter. Barca is the fleet street subplot, though during W.C. fever, I heard he could head to London.. but trails gone cold.

To whom ever said this:

Dan Gosling has already signed for Newcastle and has been seen training with the team in Dublin, he will be announced next week with De Guzman Juan Albin and yohan benalouane

Dan Gosling has an injury and is out until the New Year so I think its highly unlikely that he is training with any squad just yet.

That said he is more likely to sign for Newcastle than West Ham, but West Ham are looking to complete the signings these players very shortly:

Loic Remy £12million
Tal BenHaim Free
KevinPrince Boateng £5 million
And some foreign goalkeeper.

Remy won't be going to Liverpool, Roy has already came out and said that Liverpool were tracking him before he got there and has been recommended to him but he know's nothing about him and only signs player's that he's seen play and made a judgement on. His likely destination is West Ham and all the stories in the media are trying to force our hand and make an improved bid although Spurs could still make a move a scupper the deal.

 

19 Jul 2010 16:17:13
Just saw harewood walking out of rangers training ground murray park possibly a new signing as the gers star striker kris Boyd has just left, this will be a good signing for rangers if harewood doesn't ask for too much on his wage.

In response to the below
santon has just signed a new deal at inter so this looks unlikely also santon is a right back so why would he solve liverpools left back issue??

19 Jul 2010 14:10:59
Re
"Davide santon is set to join Liverpool in a player plus cash deal involving Javier mascherano."

Its a nice thought, but seems unlikely (why would santon agree to the move, etc.n etc.)

Perhaps you have some substantiating information which you'd care to share with us?


yes i can inform that roy hodgson has grown tired of mascherano lack of respect towards him and will allow him to leave for the right money to inter milan and rafa benitez is willing to offer cambiasso or santon plus money. roy hodgson has identified left back has a priority so the deal will probably be 21million plus santon.

plus the reason santon has agreed to move as he was told that he will be a regular starter as opposed to warming the bench at inter.

So Leeds united are still talking to clubs and players,
Grayson wants a holding midfielderand now that doyle isn't signing means he will try and sign robert koren cos hes on a free or Alan smith.
And grayson wants one more striker for competition hooper negotiations havent gone well as the asking price is too high, so grayson will sign leroy Lita bit of a gamble as hes gone of the track a bit for £500,000.
Those will be graysons areas he definetly will strengthen with those players and will sign 1 or 2 arsenal youngsters watt and mabe simpson.
And that will be leeds done for the summer.

Rino Gattuso to leave the San Siro this summer with Olympiakos front runners for his signature. Source Goal.com
Like all good Gers fans i'd love to see the wee man back at Ibrox but can't see it happening. Marcus Rosenberg, Swedish striker at Werder Bremen is out of contract and i reckon he could fill the void left by Boydy. Hes been out injured for a few months but im sure he could do a decent job.. can't be any worse than that donkey Lafferty!

David healy and mcarthur to rangers in next 48 hours all so heard brunt could be on way for 2.mil markus rosenburg on a free form werder bremen

As much I would like to see Healy and McArthur and even Brunt at Ibrox, I really doubt it, and Markus Rosenberg, would be a decent signing but again i recon there will be interest from Lower EPL clubs and im sure I also read somewhere (not sure) the Hannover and Hamburg were interested in him.

Soo if you know it is going to be in the next 48 hours, then you must have a source ? please explain who your source is ?

The Newcastle United delegation that went to Madrid could well have been over for discussions with Juan Albin of Getafe, based in Madrid, who was linked with a move to the club in January.

Newcastle need a different option upfront and a left footed left winger and Albin would fit that bill. Also being Uruguayan he speaks Spanish and will fit the Toon's Hispanic left hand side of the team.

 

19 Jul 2010 15:21:38
To the guy who said "Ozil is keen to stay in Germany and see out his contract, so don't expect a move for him unless he is offered silly money from somewhere"

Ozil will almost def go this window as his club only have one chance to "cash in"

His value will never be higher as if he stays till Jan he is free to sign a pre contract, so no club will pay silly money to buy him (plus his form may have dipped)

Reports say he is only on £20k a week so most of the top clubs could easily pay him x3 or x4 without breaking a sweat he will go.

Likely linked clubs are the usual suspects but .
Barca and Man U seem to have little money
Arsenal only is cesc goes
City possible but unlikely
Chelsea maybe but not sure would suit

 

19 Jul 2010 15:21:56
To the guy who wrote the is :

I am posting this to the guy that says Celtic are gonna sign Lawrence, Murphy, James, Bellamy & Campbell & Bullard I really think you need to get your facts staright, Campbell & Bullard have already said they are not interested because the money is not there, Campbell is heading to Newcastle & as for Bullard maybe a championship side possibly Middlesborough & a mean Lawrence & Murphy cmon, I am a Rangers fan & if we had 12 million pounds to spend we wouldn't be going for useless has beens or players who arent even getting a game with their current club, Bellamy no chance why would he leave Man City a massive premier league side to come to Celtic a team who struggled to beat a 10 man San Jose side just the other day & really the cherry on the cake is David James, u just got rid of one useless lump of a goalie to bring in another one, go for it, with the ambition & eye for a player that Neil Lennon & his coaching staff have got the title is staying where it belongs, I really am confident that without Gers even spending a penny we can still retain the title, Cmon the gers.

Artur Boruc was 100 times better than Alan McGregor . Im a Portsmouth fan and i think Celtic could sign him. Murphy has already joined them and bellamy said he didn't want to play in the epl anymore so i think your just being bigoted.

It will be berbatov to real madrid with benzema going to old trafford, goalkeeper neuer to join the real team in manchester UNITED. vidic and evra to madrid for £40mill. ozil, tevez, jagielka, cahill are coming too old trafford"

Madrid would be swapping one flop for another, so i doubt the benzema/berbatov deal would ever happen. Secondly, tevez would never be accepted back by united after joining city. Although, you can't blame fergie for not wanting to pay £56mil for tevez considering madrid bought Kaka for £55mil, tevez is a good player, but he aint that good.

i havent posted anything about West Ham signing Gosling cos i don't think it will happen, and seeing how he threw Everton away like he did, i wouldn't want West Ham to sign him but i may be wrong here, but isn't Gosling out injured until at least Christmas time? Is he seriously out training in Dublin? like i say, i may be wrong, but im fairly sure he is injured and not training. if im wrong, i'll hold my hands up, but the true reality is, he is injured! sorry

 

19 Jul 2010 15:04:32
Joe Cole
Im pleased he has signed for Liverpool, as it didn't make any sense for Arsenal to purchase an injury prone player, pushing on 29. Whilst we already have Nasri, Arshavin & Rosicky, who are equally as good, if not better. I fully expect Arsenal to sign a goalkeeper & a further centre back. My gut feelings are Frey & Subotic. Frey is 30 & experienced, giving time for the younger Arsenal keepers to come through & Subotic is a tall talented young centre back. I would rather it not be Schwarzer & Jagielka. On a personal level I would also want better back up for Song than the disappointing Denilson.

arsenal to sign frey, mertersacker, ozil and possibly a striker to replace the departing eduardo.

Agree but possibly Handanovic not Frey

No striker if Eduardo goes as ozil can play anywhere in midfield, left, right, centre attacking midfield and also behind the main striker where eduardo sometimes played.


Selling Eduardo could be part of the plan to bring in Ozil??

Although he has admitted he needs to sell and he needs to bring in 2 maybe 3 (depending on whether Simpson stays) home grown players.

19 Jul 2010 14:52:40
1) The poster who mentioned Santon (sp?) as a makeweight in the Mascherano deal is half right. Liverpool have been given a option on 3 Inter squad players. Inter have allowed Liverpool to speak to the players' representatives but it is up to each player to decide if they are interested. It is not a done deal. Nothing will happen until Mascherano comes back from holiday next week and Liverpool are establishing interest at this stage only.

The figures quoted in this deal are all rubbish nothing is clarified at all. It depends on the other player acting as makeweight in the deal and Inter are way off Liverpool's valuation of Mascherano. Realistically : £1315m + player.

2) All the posters suggesting various Man City players going to Liverpool ignore a key fact: City will consider sales only if Torres is for discussion. Until that happens..no go!

"Trotsky"

 

19 Jul 2010 14:52:48
I am not some deluded fantasising Arsenal supporter.
But could Arsenal deciding to not sign Joe Cole and him joining Liverpool pave the way for Ozil to make his Arsenal move?
This is not out of the question
Wenger is not the stingy and tight person we think he is capable of making expensive high profile signings.

In the past : Nasri (£14m), Vermaelen (£10m although not well known), Arshavin (£17m), Hleb (£13m), Sagna (£9m)



Ozil (£20m??) ?

gattuso while he might have a glaswegian wife and a great respect for walter smith would neither fit into our team or our pay stucture.

It's ridiculous that there are bears out there who keep this STUPID rumour alive! Please stop it!
We will sign the Aussie lad on loan, and maybe conway and goodwillie but only if other interested teams dint push up the asking price.

Joe Cole has signed for Liverpool on a 4 year contract at £80K week plus significant add ons.

Leeds United news,

Leeds United are not resigning Alan Smith!! Robert Koren has been offerd terms and a formal offer could be made for McArthur (Hamilton) despite what SG has said in the press (if they lower their asking price).

Leeds still are in talks with Arsenal over the signing of two loan players. Wenger wants to give many of his young players a chance to shine in pre season before deciding who he lets out on loan. Leeds' training facilities and coaching staff were given glowing refrences by Sanchez Watt and this gives us a slight adavantage over the host of clubs interested in Arsenal starlets. Jay Simpson was a target but his two goals in a recent friendly have interested other clubs too.

Things ive heard from the Bundesliga

Ozil is keen to stay in Germany and see out his contract, so don't expect a move for him unless he is offered silly money from somewhere. Dzeko wants to move to Man City but City have been quoted 50 euros, they won't pay that. 3 clubs have enquired about Sweinsteiger, the latest I heard about is Real Madrid after they look to miss out on Gerrard. Expect to hear something very soon on that one.

Cant wait for the new season!

yes i can inform that roy hodgson has grown tired of mascherano lack of respect towards him and will allow him to leave for the right money to inter milan and rafa benitez is willing to offer cambiasso or santon plus money. roy hodgson has identified left back has a priority so the deal will probably be 21million plus santon.

plus the reason santon has agreed to move as he was told that he will be a regular starter as opposed to warming the bench at inter.

Update on "Aidan McGeady to Villa by end of this week for £6M; Heskey to have CP tour later this week with a view to a loan deal for season"..
Heskey loan dependent on McGeady transfer because McGeady fee will be enhanced (in kind) by Celts picking up the tab for the balance of Heskey's wages (balance reputed to be £35K per week, or £1.26M over the season). This brings McGeady's valuation up to £7.26M to be augmented by appearance money / sell on fee after 3 seasons.

Keane valued at £8M (sorry missed out the M that would have been a bargain!) plus appearance money for one season.

The banks have frozen Manchester Uniteds credit facility. And so it begins.

Not sure about this mate. Man Utd have publically chased Sneijder and Villa and even matched Barca's bid for Villa before he left Valencia. So if the banks have frozen Man U's credit flow how come they are openly bidding upwards of £30million for players??
Gill and Fergie have both stated there is cash available. Perhaps what you mean is the sanctions placed on the Glazers US assets and the negative equity they are currently running in? Because their Financial holding co. and Man Utd havent released anything on this?

Im willing to change my mind if you show me your source for this

I also understand a deal for Ninis is close but there is a disagreement regarding the overall package for him.

Editor any news on Ninis? Do you think if they get Ninis they will go for anyone else? and what do you know about hargreaves latest injury? is that it for him?

Jaymo {editor's note I don't think Fergie has any intention of buying more players if he gets an attacking midfielder, unless he sells someone first. It will be difficult for Hargreaves, but only time will tell for sure, once the injury settles down a bit and it can be checked how it is healing, then there will be a better idea if it is the end for him. Got to say that it doesn't look good for him.}

THIS IS ABSOLUTE RUBBISH, HOW CAN THE BANKS FREEZE UNITED'S ACCOUNTS WHEN MANCHESTER UNITED DO NOT OWE THE BANKS A PENNY? UNITED PAID OFF THE BANKS WHEN THEY TOOK ON THE BOND SCHEME. IN FACT TELL A LIE, UNITED OWE THE BANK £11.4m (£520.9m minus the 509.5m bond = £11.4m)!

ASTON VILLA

People on this websiote are saying aston villa's transfer this season are bascially going to turn the team from a Champions League contenders to relegation fighter, al these rumour are likely to happen but are not garunteed signings.

In's

Robbie Keane Spurs £8, 500,000
Steven Ireland Man City P/E
Aidan McGeady Celtic £6,000,000 P/E
Sebastian Frey Fiorientina £8,000,000

Swindon are interested in signing Matthew Taylor from Exeter or Peter Murphy from Carlisle to replace former captain Gordon Greer who has moved to Brighton.

Liverpool's young striker Nathan Eccleston, who had a loan spell at Huddersfield last season, is set to sign a 6 month loan deal for Swindon. Boosting the attacking options available to Danny Wilson.

It is also believed Swindon are looking at the possibility of bringing in former Plymouth striker Alan Gow.

Aidan McGeady to Villa by end of this week for £6M; Heskey to have CP tour later this week with a view to a loan deal for season; Lawrence coming in from Stoke as soon as McGeady sale concluded. No sign of McDonald return from Boro seems very unlikely now unless Celtic's bid for Keane collapses (apparently Spurs have been offered £8 plus appearance money circa £5K per game for one season).
Keeper situation not resolved yet but Cervi will step up to No2 with Zaluska as No 1.
Samaras defo on way to Hercules if bid of over £1.5M made.
Bullard deal will be resurrected as £35K per week season loan if Heskey / Keane deals fall through.

mcgeady to villa for 6m well i doubt it as celtic have allready turned down a 8m bid if they offer 8 to 10 million i can see lennon selling but come on and keane to celtic for "£8" i think ya mean 8 million as for heskey i hope not but there may be some truth in it zaluska will step up to the plate and liam lawernce is only a posibility it is in no were near a stage to judge it

Manchester United Benzema, not moving from Real Madrid. United however will sign Gary Cahill and Ryan Shawcross, possible cover for the departure of Evra and Vidic in the next season.

Shawcross won't go to one of the big teams just as cover he left Man Utd so that he could play, he loves the game and is a genuine lad not a money grabbing tr like alot in the Prem, when he does leave Stoke in a few years at the rate he is progressing now he will be walking in to any of the top 4 teams (well maybe not Arsenal) as first choice central defender.

News relating to Celtic

Sky Sports News reporting that Spanish side, Hercules (not to be confused with Dutch side, Heracles) have made a bid for Celtic Striker, Georgios Samaras. At the moment Celtic are considering what to do.

Also reported this morning is Spurs are set to make a bid for Bellamy. So that would be scuppering any planned moves by Celtic for Bellamy, as has been constantly reported. Celtic are most likely dependant on offloading McGeady for a big price before making any sort of move for Bellamy and the fact Aiden hasn't left yet just means time is draining away rapidly.

It's also reported that Celtic target Sol Campbell has opted for Newcastle United. Although the deal is not signed yet. Bottom line, it would be a major surprise now if Sol Campbell signs for Celtic at this late stage.

According to Wikipedia (take that for what it's worth) a few squad numbers have changed at Celtic. Lukasz Zaluska now has the #1 jersey, vacated by Artur Boruc. Reports regarding a new goalkeeper are linking Palace keeper, Julien Speroni with us. This seems more plausible than David James coming as it seems Lenny is going to put faith in Zaluska as our first choice keeper and instead will bring in a new keeper to play as backup, rather than a 40 year old David James who'd expect big wages and probably be able to perform well for one more year, at the most.

A report yesterday claimed that the Gunners had seen a £14 million bid for Jagielka thrown out, but were planning an improved offer.

The Blues insist the bid was lower than quoted, however, and that any increased offer would be dealt with in the same way." Liverpool Echo

To answer the poster who said this:

"Does enyone know why Micheal Doyle hasnt signed for Leeds or eny reason why he isn't gunna sign"

Michael Doyle is unlikely to leave Coventry this season. Central Midfielder Gary Deegan has sustained an injury in preseason which will keep him out of action for 3 months. This leaves Sammy Clingan, Aron Gunnarsson and Michael Doyle as players who are specialist CM's. (Isaac Osbourne also out with injury). Expect Doyle to leave on a free contract at the end of the season.

ED any substance to the Nicky Butt to PNE rumour also what have you heard on the other two signings that we are expecting at deepdale besides carl dickinson?. Don't believe any rumours regarding Wigan players to PNE as this has just come about because of the link between Maurice Lindsey our new chairman and his former club {editor's note – the Nicky Butt to Preston rumour started up because of who your manager is, rather than any real interest in him. I am guessing there is no real interest or he would have signed by now. As for the two other signings, I am unsure on those, have heard too many conflicting accounts on who they are. Though I would expect it to be permanent deals purely because loan moves can be signed after the window closes, it makes sense to loan players to fill in gaps that you weren't able to fill during the transfer market.}

"Banega was signed by Liverpool Football Club on the 19th july 2010 at 8am. originally a Rafa Beneitez target the 23 year old was captured by new manager Roy Hodgson. He was given the No 6. He is yet to feature for Liverpool." This just in, belive it you who want.

This "quote" has been taken directly from Banega's wiki page, and I've checked and this has now been removed from his wiki page as I'm sure someone realised it was absolute rubbish. His wiki page now reads,

"With the departures of David Villa and David Silva in 2010, Banega is expected to become an integral part to the team and is a growing fan favourite at the club" That just in, believe it you who want.

Also, ed have you heard anything at all about Danijel Pranjic joining the club?

Cheers

ChrisS {editor's note – I haven't heard anything definite, just a whisper that he is wanted, but I personally believe that the interest was in the past and that Roy is not interested in him.}

Walsall Rumours.

With Walsall's new director Leigh Pomlett joining the board. He has pumped £400,000 into the club to be used for transfers and players wages. Chris Hutchings will have money to spend.

Walsall will sign Brett Pitman from Bournemouth for initial £200,000 plus add ons. He will sign a 3 year deal.

They will also sign Gavin Mahon on a free from QPR. He will sign a 2 year deal and become club captain.

Walsall will also sign Darel Russell on a free from Norwich. He will sign a 2 year deal and is a very versatile player.

Lee Holmes will sign a 3 year deal from Southampton. He will cost £150,000 plus add ons.

Leigh Pomlett has said their is more money available if Chris Hutchings needs it in January.

Walsall are a club on the up!



Firstly, Brett Pitman won't be signing for Walsall, he wants to stay in his current house in the South and won't want to commute to Walsall every day.

Secondly, Lee Holmes was in talks with Bristol Rovers but talks have broken down as Saints will only sell as part of a deal for Chris Lines, and Bristol Rovers don't want to sell. Also Holmes has been impressive for Saints in the PreSeason friendlies in Switzerland and could well feature for Southampton this season. He won't leave St.Marys for that dump you call "The Banks Stadium"

I work for a local newspaper in the Highlands and I have heard that Inverness Caledonian Thistle boss Terry Butcher is being tipped to take over from Billy Davies at Forest if Davies walks away from the job. Forest are in Portugal at the moment on a preseason tour, but the lack of transfer activity at Forest and Davies' apparent unhappiness with Forest's transfer panel may mean that a change in the managerial hotseat is imminent.

Unfortunately, Soccernet are reporting that Joe Cole is looking to be Hodgsons first signing. Looks like Liverpool are sticking with tradition of signing injury prone players Kewell, Aurelio, Torres, Aquilani. At 90k a week, we don't even have a bargain. Very sad for Liverpool :(

 

19 Jul 2010 08:52:21
Talks of a contract extension between Werder Bremen and Ozil have broken down as an agreement on salary could not be reached. Surely with his current contract expiring in summer 2011 Werder Bremen will choose to sell now rather than lose him for free next year?
I hear Real Madrid are favourites but question whether they would sign him having recently signed Di Maria and with Jose seemingly looking at strengthening his defence as a priority?

Wenger will look to 23 more signings

Jagielka16 Million
J.ColeFree

on the goalkeeper situation wenger had admited that he is in the market for a goalkeeper so can see either one of

Schwarzer
Given
Frey
Handanovic
James
or a very sneaky bid for casillas if mourinho wants to buy Julio Cesar



Agree with you here. Hopefully one of Casillas, Frey or Handanovic (most likely)


Your right about Joe Cole and Jagielka
The main reason being that, as you may have heard over the last couple of days that wenger has hit out at the home grown rule saying that it should be the quality that counts.

At least 2 are needed and Cole and Jagielka both are home grown

This is because we have 6 home grown but 1 is Jay Simpson so it is likely we need 3 as he may move on


This will force wenger to sell also.

4 are out!

So Arsenal have lost 4 defenders and signed only 1(Koscielny)

So Wenger will look to sign another defender, to partner Vermaelen..Koscielny will be kept as back up
Djourou and Gibbs will be fit to start the season.
Also a keeper will be signed!!

Defenders may be

Phil Jagielka One bid failed yesterday, Wenger may probably add 2 million to the initial one

Mertesacker Now that Ozil is also on the Transfer Market.Wenger may give a 3035 million offer to get both!

Also Keepers

SchwarzerNOT AT ALL! wenger dismissed rumours after the Barnet game.

Lloris French, Wenger has him in sight

Handanovic Most Likely

Ed I just read a rumor on caughtoffside that says cole is going to join liverpool because bookies say the odds went way up very quick on him joinging liverpool so they closed bets on it. I am a yank not like the ones that own the greatest team ever so please don't hold that against me but i don't really know much about all of this. Is there any truth to it that you have heard of? {editor's note – nobody knows for sure, Cole has been given offers, but he now has to choose from them. Everything else going around is mostly guesswork and wild fantasy.}

 

19 Jul 2010 03:10:15
Just a thought regarding LFC.

Hodgson has been quoted as saying that we need to sign players fairly quickly for the champions league, as the medical staff have informed him that players who played in the latter stages of the world cup shouldn't be playing in the early games of the europa league.

As we only have a limited transfer budget, does this then mean that we won't be signing any world cup players from countries who reached the knock out rounds?

Secondly, Hodgson has stated that the futures of players such as Riera and Insua were decided before he came to the club. If this is the case, then there is a very good chance that Cole and Remy may still arrive before the start of the new season. Perhaps we might see a few other players we were linked with such as Turan. The fact that Dalglish was in Istanbul a few weeks ago may back this up.

Not rumours as such, just trying to put 2 and 2 together and come up with the right answers.

Editor Can you help clarify the situation of the following players. I'm trying to piece things together here

IN

Sign Gattuso on loan
Resign Niguez on loan
Brett Holman on loan
Michael Tonge on loan
McDonald
Harry Kewell
Goncalves

OUT

Davis
Bougherra
Miller

I personally don't see any of these coming about barring Tonge? Gattuso seems more likely than ever but I still doubt it. I don't think Niguez would want to come back. Holman would reportedly demand about 18k pw and I don't think Rangers are willing to play it. Kewell and McDonald are pure rubbish I reckon, and if Goncalves were to sign it would've been done by now and he wouldn't be putting make statements on his website to drum up interest.

I don't see Rangers wanting to sell Davis at all, and I doubt Bougherra will go this season. Miller seems to be the one guy Walter relies on and I don't think he'd sell him, especially since he's not worth a substantial amount

Just what I'd heard though. Can you shed any more light on my suspicions? {editor's note – I am fully in agreement with you. Kewell, for instance, was only rumoured to be joining you because his wife is back in the UK for work. It was a case of journalists looking for someone to link him with that will sell papers, there is no evidence of the club even having contacted him.}

19 Jul 2010 08:52:09
Although I don't think a firm interest has been declared in Loic Remy, it seems that Nice are piling the pressure on Liverpool over the player. The deal seems to be if you want the player then (a) offer as much as West Ham offered, and (b) pay up by the end of the season – effectively half now and half in June 2011.

Liverpool needs to figure out how many wide playing strikers they need. Remy is a better than average striker – but not a great striker. I would guess that he would be nowhere near the top of the list were it were not for financial constraints (unless of course this is a smokescreen for something else!). He does seem to be similar to other players that the club already have. I would be surprised if Liverpool progressed this without at least letting someone else go first. I also doubt that they would allow themselves to be bullied by Nice.

In other news, it seems that maybe Rafa Benitez did have an eye for a player, with ex–Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena scoring the first of what will no doubt be many hat–tricks for Napoli.

Sharkey.

Believe this or not but joey cole is currently in discussions with west ham about a return to upton park.sullivan is prepared to offer him £105,000 a week on a 2 year deal and also a clause so that he can leave in ANY transfer window!

No we don't believe it one bit! Several reasons:
A) At £105k per week, Cole would be paid at least 40% more than the Hammers current highest paid player. If Cole was to be earning that kind of money, Scott Parker's agent would soon be demanding his client have at least parity to the deal.This would then split the dressing room and more than likely end in Parker, Green and Upson putting in transfer requests.

B)West Ham are all in all a pretty poor squad. At best, they will be pushing midtable, but more likely battling against the drop again. Joe Cole is highly unlikely to sign for a club that is not currently competing in European football.

C) When Sullivan & Gold purchased West Ham, their immediate target was to stabilise the club and get rid of the high earning players with horrendous injury records Kieron Dyer, Luis Boa Morte, Dean Ashton etc. Joe Cole hardly fits that remit! Bearing in mind that signings so far have been McCarthy, Piquionne, Barrera, Ilan and Mido it doesn't take a genius to work out that there's not a great deal of money available at the club!

D) Yes, Cole's a boyhood Hammer, but at the end of the day, he's 28 and this next move will in all likelyhood be his last long term deal before he retires. Arsenal are not interested, Spurs have issues over his wages, Man Utd have not made an approach in fact the only club desperate enough to pander to Cole's whims seems to be Liverpool. It is a well known fact though that Cole doesn't want to relocate from London. Therefore he has to either lower his wage demands and give Spurs a crack or show himself to be the true mercenary he really is and take the money on offer at Liverpool.

This has to be the most boring transfer saga ever on record!

so why would either player be joining you??

 

18 Jul 2010 23:41:38
These transfers are most likely and the ones that won't happen to happen between now and the close of the transfer window.

Tottenham Joe Cole deal. Wrapped up ages ago. Spurs ready to pay Joe Cole 95,000 with a signing on fee.
Craig Bellamy will not be joining Spurs. He is staying at City. Pav, Crouch, Defoe and Keane to all line up for Spurs this season on and off the bench.

Manchester United Benzema, not moving from Real Madrid. United however will sign Gary Cahill and Ryan Shawcross, possible cover for the departure of Evra and Vidic in the next season.

Liverpool FC. What can I say about this. My sources from Jimmy Johnson by the river tells me, Liverpool will be doing most of their big buys right on the 11th hour of this summers transfer window. Expect to see some old faces to return to the club. Liverpool were never in the running to sign anyone big for a long time, now they cash is here. Torres to stay.

Chelsea Going to be very quiet at Chelsea, hardly any players going or comming. why spoil a winning team. Torres talk is krap talk. Papers have nothing else to fill in the back pages.

Arsenal To sign Mikkel Arteta for 15 Million and part exchange/loan players. you heard it here first.

Aston Villa will hold on to James Milner, he's not going anywhere.

Man City the next player Man City will sign is.wait for it. Ashely Cole 35 Million pounds. Ashely Cole, will trigger a clause in his contract, that will turn ugly between the chiefs of both clubs.

 

18 Jul 2010 23:43:32
Bullard will be followed to Celtic Park by Craig Bellamy and a centre half, Lenny wants experiance but if he can't get one he will move for Kelvin Wilson of Forrest, a goalkeeper will also be bought, names linked are Westwood, James and Cudicini, all transfers will b funded by the sale of McGeady, Samaras, Ferry and Wilson on top of Boruc and McManus. I personally can't see Gattuso resigning for TFOD as he would never take a massive drop in his wages, if they can't offer Eagles from the championship good terms wot chance of Gattuso? Personally I would love them to give him 70/80 grand a week at his age!

The fee agreed is £500k."

Is this genuine, or are you the same idiot who's been saying Leeds are signing Gary Hooper for countless weeks now? Have you just got bored of writing that and decided to latch onto Lita instead?

Rangers
"Gattuso signed for Glasgow Rangers on the 18th of July 2010 on a one year deal"

Wiki changed it back from Rangers to Milan but have advised the statement above in the side comments

Class act is hard to follow

Ex Liverpool Goalkeepers on the move:

Ryan Jones Stevenage
David Martin Swindon.

"with the 2735 million coming in for mascha lpool will go 4 the signing of want away james milner."

You'd think that if he truly wanted away, he'd hand in a transfer request, which he never did and said he never would. He's looking at his options while on vacation till the 25th. Liverpool have a very small chance of getting him. And I mean, very small.

Just heard the rumour about gattuso
hope its true, hes a much better player than bullard, 2 champions leagues a world cup and several other trophies, plus hes only a year older that bullard.

Just to clear this up Gattuso has not signed for rangers and is unlikely to at the moment maybe next couple of seasons but not this one. Wika is not accurate as has been mentioned millions of times before. Bullard should sign for Celtic this week following Hulls sweetner and would expect Bellamy or likewise signing within the next 7days

Ed, anything on Ozil/Xabi Alonso to Arsenal {editor's note – as far as I can find out neither are happening.}

 

18 Jul 2010 23:16:25
Andy Carrol to Plymouth on loan??

If he was to leave (doubt it after his own comments) it would be to a premiership team for cash, NOT ON LOAN. And hes our best striker!! Don't see two of those coming in at all!!

NUFC Ins:

Dan Gosling (depending on Everton compensation prob around £3mil)
Alan Hutton (loan)
Young player from Man U (loan maybe option to buy like Simpson)
Wouldn't be surprised to see Van Aanholt of Chelsea back in on loan

Outs:

Any credible bid for Ryan Taylor (£34mil)
Alan Smith (Bolton if £5mil fee can be negotiated)

If transfers do happen, money will be spent on Vela (upfront cash loan with option to buy/extend) and a bid for Jamie O'Hara of Spurs (£6mil+addons)

Any Derby County Rumours Ed? {editor's note – I haven't heard anything about players in or out around Derby.}

 

18 Jul 2010 22:45:04
Kidding right?

IN:
KevinPrince Boateng Portsmouth 6m
Eljero Elia Hamburg 10m
Dan Gosling Free
Fabio Aurelio Free
Ivan Klasnic Nantes 4.5m
Stephen Ireland Man C 8m
Vladimir Stojkovic S Lisbon 2.5m
Aruna Dindane Lens 4m
Total: 35m

Boateng maybe, Aurelio maybe and Ireland is a most likely.
Elia no.. Gosling no interest. Klasnic no interest. Dindane? 4M? THE GUY SUCKS and he's a 100% no. Stojkovic is a possibility but heard nothing of it.

OUT:
Steve Sidwell Fulham 3.5m
Marc Albrighton Cardiff 1m
Curtis Davies Newcastle 5m
Fabian Delph Ipswich 3m
Moustapha Salifou Rennes 1.5m
Emile Heskey West Ham 4m
Nigel ReoCoker Bolton 5m
Nicky Shorey Sunderland 3.5m
Habib Beye Dynamo Kiev 3m
Isaiah Osbourne Middlesbrough 1m
Andreas Weimann Lincoln 200k
Barry Bannan Blackpool 600k
Jonathan Hogg Barnet 200k
Total: 31.5m

Albrighton isn't being sold, Delph isn't being sold, Weihmann isn't being sold, no way is Bannan being sold and Hogg isn't being sold.

You're taking us from a CL contender to a relegation battling club. Please..ED: Tell me this is all wrong? {editor's note – not quite all wrong, but on the points you have made I think it is.}
