Has anyone got a good reliable source within man. United?
If yh, can you please inform me on the situation with wat they are going to do with the 7 million offer for Rossi and the 7 million offer for pique.
Plus can you please clear up the forward situation on who we are looking at with firm interest?
I'm Michael C by the way.
Leicester city rumour now todorov has left Pompey I have heard he's due in Leicester for talks next wk however Derby are said to be interested as well
Leeds to sign:
Rab Douglas (Leicester–£250k)
Kozluk (Sheff U–Free)
Ganea (Rapid Bucharest–Free)
Healy (Fulham/ Wolves–£2.5 million)
R. Elliot (Huddersfield–Free)
Foxe (Will probably retire–like Kelly)
ARSENAL: Arsenal's frontline could potential be Martins&Huntelaar. As for wingers, Puerta and Behrami are being looked at, typical Wenger Signings, the non–superstars. If, IF Fabregas were to go, to either Madrid or Barcelona, expect Arsenal to ask for Robinho or Iniesta respectively in exchange. On a side note, I think Schuster will get Madrid job, but only for a year, and Wenger will join when his contract runs out, and the man to replace Wenger? Big Phil, SCOLARI
Robbie Blake is set to join North East side Hartlepool United. My brother, who has known Blake since his school days in Middlesbrough, tells me Blake has fallen out with Dennis Wise, and is keen for a move back nearer home. The only stumbling block could be weather Hartlepool sign Daryl Duffy from Hull City.
Everton are poised for a £10 million triple bid for Man United trio Alan Smith, Kieran Richardson, and Phil Bardsley. Club officials will meet next week.
Martin Scott is set to rejoin Hartlepool as a member of Danny Wilson's backroom staff following his departure from Bury last month.
FAO EVERTON FANS: After a slow start to the market, the contract extension of Mr Cahill + Arteta has bucked most blues up. Well things are about to get a whole lot better with no fewer than 5 big name signings before the new season. These are: Jagielka (deal done next week), Riquelme (on a season long loan), Fernandes (season loan with a view to a £8 million deal), Alan Smith (£5 million from Man United) and Kieran Richardson (£2.5 million also from United. Leaving us will be Nace, VDM, who will return to Fc Twente, and the Beat, who will move to Blackburn (potentially in a swap with Roberts).
Norwich are on the verge of signing david marshall, he will have medical on monday or tuesday n sign a three year deal. they also are closing in on a £2 million deal 4 eastwood.
Rumours are flying around that Hearts are set to announce Jim Jefferies as there new manager this summer with Steven Naismith following him in a 1.5 million deal with Calum Elliot going the other way.
I have just heard through an undisclosed reliable source that on Monday the second of July 2007, Norwich City Football Club will conduct a Press Conference which will unveil the club's third and fourth signings of the season; David Marshall from Celtic, and Freddy Eastwood from Southend.
Currently, Freddy Eastwood has agreed terms with the East Anglian club, and will have a medical sometime during Saturday.
As well as these two big name signings, Norwich will also look to add depth to their current team, by bringing back former on–loan defender Callum Davenport back to the club on loan, with the possibility of signing him from West Ham, also Norwich city FC will bring in an ex–player, Dean Marney, who will be the third ex–canary rejoining the club. These two deals are to be announced on Wednesday or Thursday.
The rumour that Lee Croft is on his way out of Carrow Road will be dismissed, as the Midfielder will sign a new contract at Norwich City, in hope that Norwich secure a place in the Premier League this season.
I have just recieved some information from a very reliable source from inside Leicester City fc. Leicester will complete 7 more signings for the start of the new season and these will be unveiled over the next week. Joseph–Desire Job on a 2 year deal will be the first of these and will be followed with the arrivals of Lee Bowyer, Alex Morfaw, Adam Hammill (on a season long loan), Svetoslav Todorov, Stephen Clemence and Kris Commons. Leaving Leicester City will be Matty Fryatt in a 900k move to Forest and Richard Stearman to Wolves. Also Elvis Hammond will be joining Norwich FC as cover for new signings David Strihavka and Jamie cureton.
Ipswich Town FC are about to spend some of the cash they received from Darren Bent's transfer from Charlton Athletic to Tottenham Hotspur on Leicester City's forward Elvis Hammond.
Hammond, who has in the past been on laon at fierce rivals Norwich City has been out–of–favour at the Walker's Stadium, but Ipswich Town manager Jim Magilton has been impressed with the forward, even though he has failed to make a goal scoring impact in the Championship. Hammond could be joing the Portman Road club very soon, as it is likely that the Tractor Boy's current star forward Alan Lee looks set to leave the club, and the news that Ipswich will not get Francis Jeffers playing for them next year has meant that Magilton has acted fast on snapping up hammond from clubs such as Swansea.
Colchester transfer update– The U's will try tempt 3 MK Dons players to Layer road, these will be Clive Platt to replace Chris Iwelumo, Jon–Paul McGovern and Leon Knight to replace Jamie Cureton. They will also make a move for two league 1 players believed to be from Luton and Leeds but this is yet to be confirmed.
Leicester city will make 3 loan signings next week–these will be Adam Hammill from Liverpool, Ben Sahar from Chelsea and Cedric Evina from Arsenal. These are 99% true and are from a source inside the club that is very reliable. Norwich will complete the signing of David Marshall from Celtic for 700k on Monday aswell.
