Football Rumours Archive June 01 2007
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Neil Danns and Simon Walton are on Jim Magilton's list of potential midfielders he would like to sign. Once deals for Franny Jeffers and Richard Wright have been confirmed Magilton will make a move for one of these players. A fee of around 300–500k would be enough to secure either player.
Espanyol striker Luis Garcia is a target for Reading. The English club have been watching the 25–year–old all season and are impressed with his high work rate.
After signing Scott Parker from Newcastle for £7m, the Hammers will follow that up with bids for Everton trio Mikel Arteta, Tim Cahill and Andy Johnson.
Tevez will be at either Real Madrid or Juve next season and not Liverpool or Chelsea.
Luke Young will come in as understudy to Lucas Neill who has no intention of leaving, especially for Newcastle as the press seem to think.
I live near motspur park (Fulham's training ground) and I've just seen Steve Finnan get out of a white range rover so he maybe going back to his former club
Reading to sell Nicky Shorey (2m to Arsenal), Ibrahima Sonko (4m to Wigan), Ivar Ingimarsson (2m to Everton) and Graham Murty (500k to Sheff utd) and replace them with Dave Nugent (7m), Jason Koumas (2.5m) and Robbie Fowler (free) .
Matthew Etherington and David Nugent spotted at the Academy of Light (safc training ground) being shown around by Roy Keane and Niall Quinn. Also expect Neil Lennon and Jason Koumas to move to the stadium of light. Youth product Daniel Smithwhite is set to be offered a 3 year contract as he has been tipped as the next Kevin Phillips.
Liverpool FC rumours: There are alot of rumours going around for Liverpool at the moment. Some will happen but some of these are smokescreens. Rafa will bring in Malouda and Simao by the end of the week. Alves will not be coming as Sevilla want too much for him. Milito or Kaladeze will come in to strentghen the defense although Hyypia will also stay. The big rumours for fans is up front, Crouch and Kuyt will be partnered by none other than Carlos Tevez and Adriano! and ofcourse Voronin. Team next season; Reina/ Carson, Finnan/ Arbeloa, Carragher/ Milito or Kaladeze, Agger/ Hyypia, Riise/ Aurelio, Simao/ Pennant, Gerrard/ Mascherano/ Garcia, Alonso/ Leiva/ Sissoko, Kewell/ Malouda, Tevez/ Kuyt/ Adriano/ Crouch/ Voronin. LFC4LIFE
John Madejski will give Coppell a massive £30m transfer budjet in his last act as chairman before a takoever. Reading will be taken over by a Chinese businessman for £65m and will appoint Madejski as a club director and will not buy the Stadium or Stadium naming rights.
Steve Coppell will bring in Scott Carson on loan, Phil Jagielka, Emerse Fae, Bobby Zamora, Pedro Leon, Jason Koumas, Darren Ambrose and Gary O'Neill. This will total about £20m and he will spend the rest of his budjet on trying to tempt a world class name to Madejski. He recntly sent Steve Leatherborrow to go to see Joao Moutinho of sporting in what could be the shock transfer of the summer. Nicky Shorey will not be sold and will stay at the club for the forseeable future. Going out will be Seol Ki Hyeon who will leave for Derby or Birmingham for around £2m. Also leaving will be John Halls (stoke), Sam Sodje (West Brom), Shane Long (on loan to Sunderland) and Michael Dubbery (Derby)
With Nani signing for Man United, Tottenham will bid 8m for Downing.
Man Uniteds last signing of the transfer window will be Defoe for 6m as they have already nearly spent their 50m budget.
This will make way for D. Bent to sign for Tottenham in a 11m deal.
Also Parker will sign for West Ham over the weekend, which means Barton will go to Newcastle and Reo Coker to Aston Villa.
My dad works at Villa Park and has bought me some shocking rumours. You will find out later today that Olejnik and Henderson (youth goalkeepers) will be released. This is because Craig Gordon is definitely signing for £5.5m. New Villa hero John Carew has also shocked the club. He heard of interest from former club Valencia (whom are losing David Villa) and has asked for permission to talk to them. However, Villa are asking for a hefty £7m for the striker. He will most likely be replaced by Darren Bent for £12m and Craig Bellamy for £7m. Reo Coker (£6m) is also a target for Martin O Neill.
Villa have made a bid to sign Dean Ashton from West Ham for 6 million, a source close to the Hammers say this may be accepted as they see Bobby Zamora&Carlos Tevez as their future.
Teddy Sheringham has been spotted at home park and is expected to sign on next week
Best mate says Spurs are keeping tabs on earnshaw if Defoe does not stop bleating along with Mido sale this would give Spurs enough to buy Martin petrov/ mgp for the left mid slot and a back up striker maybe Viduka/ yakubu. he's a cabbie and gets lots of staff in cab.
Norwich have significant funds after the the arrival of local millionaire buisness partners on the board but we acctually have more money to spend than the board are letting on to with the already agreed sale of earnshaw to Reading all the funds from that are going towards signings
we will sign Billy Jones –free
Billy Sharp–agreed fee of2.3million
Michael woods on afree transfer
outs will be safri Sheffield Wednesday
andy Hughes–Scunthorpe in exchange with sharp plus cash
Wednesday will miss out on Billy Sharp . i spoke to his agent imre varadi at a football presentation in Sheffield. sharp doesn't want to upset all his mates and appear to be kicking Sheffield United in teeth by signing for their arch enemy. however Wednesday are talking to brian mcbride of Fulham and Scott Carson. though Carsons wages might be a problem. Wednesday are also to grab the signing of Steve watson wba . Neil danns brum and banu saffana from Lyon also the takeover will happen in july the new owner will be the ex Everton director Mr gregg of greggs sandwich shops. we may not have the best squad in the division but we ll have the best sausage rolls
Watfords Danny Shittu is s target for Reading
Celtic may not splash out on another striker after the signings of Killen and McDonald. Instead Strachan will look for another quality midfielder–either Appiah, Koumas or Barton–and two defenders with European pedigree–thought to be Joris Mathijsen and Steven Whittaker (although he has not played in Europe, Strachan feels he has the athletisism and versatility to succeed at that level) Hail Hail
I have a friend who is in ghana with the RIGHT TO PLAY ORG, he asked Mourinho about United signing anderson to which he said they choose Mikel over anderson who they were offered a year ago. fact. Chelsea to sign Sidwell, alex, moutinho and a world class striker or 2
Please stop Rafa to pick the bones of an aging and Frankly poor Roma side. naaa, may look at taking a cheap striker as back up but n e thing else will be purely a backwards step.
Facts. Teves is in advanced negotiations with Liverpool. he does not see his future at chavski cause he would never upset the West Ham fans by signing for a Derby rival!
Facts. M. G. P is also in talks with Liverpool, though Rafa is deciding between him and David silva. depending how offers go for Bellamy, Crouch, gonzales and Sissoko.
Fact. Simao will sign a three year deal in the next fortnight
Fact. Florent Malouda. will also sign for Liverpool. the rest appear to be as per standard for Rafa. young kids. although he is trying to find out how much it would cost to buy Matty Taylor from pompey. who have recently signed sully Muntari. (GREAT SIGNING FOR THEM BY THE WAY. Europe beckons!)
I am told by my sources that Parker is on his way to West Ham in an £8.5m deal, and this will signal the end of Reo–Coker's time at Upton Park. Tottenham lead the chase for his signature, Arsenal have not pursued their interest from last summer and will not enter a bidding war for him. Everton will potentially enter the race if their bid for Joey Barton fails.
Allardyce will also seal the signature of Derek Boateng from Beitar Jerusalem for over £1m to add to his midfield. This is intended to provide competition for Emre and Dyer in the attacking midfield department. Joey Barton is being earmarked to replace Parker in midfield – Allardyce will match the £5.5m buyout Clause, but faces competition from Everton and Sunderland.
Man United will wrap up the deal to sign Owen Hargreaves this week in an initial £16m deal. They will try to balance the books by offloading one of Silvestre and Heinze – Real Madrid and Lyon are in the race for both. Funds will also be put towards a bid for Samuel Eto'o of Barcelona, who Ferguson desires to pair with Rooney next season. If not, Huntelaar of Ajax is being earmarked for £12m.
Noises coming out of St Marys suggest a deal for a takeover offer is only days away.
The unnames American bidder is close to having access to buy at least 51% of the shares from present holders including Rupert Lowe. It is expected he will then take the plc into private ownership.
It will not be a time for a big spend but wheels are already in motion to secure Saganowski's permenant transfer to Saints for 1M Euros.
New contract extentions talks for Surman and others are expected to take place during the summer break, just as soon as the bidder takes control.
Next week should bring comforting rumours to the club and its supporters
Wenger to make his first signing this week. queresma is the man. Ribery rumor a distraction. this is Wengers answer to the wide man he is looking for. sorry Freddie your off my son! (the new Ronaldo of the premier league awaits)
Liverpool Manager Rafa Bentiez has stated his intentions over big signings this summer following massive blow–out talks with George Gillett and Tom Hicks, he does have a number of possible targets and a number of players that he would like to strenghen the squad with. Obviously there are only a small number of people who know the exact details lets be honest, everyone on this site who claims to know the tea–lady's uncle's cousin at Anfield/ Old Trafford/ Stamford Bridge/ Emirates etc probably doesn't, but if they did then why on earth would they know the business of the club officials?!
Being realistic, and going on strictly rumours (not figments of my imagination) and info I have gained from friends, I give you these snippets of gossip:
1) Barcelona boss Frank Rijkaard is preparded to let Cameroon International Samuel Eto'o leave the Nou Camp but are comfortable financially, so they are trying their luck at forcing Rafa's hand by stating that Liverpool can have Eto'o if we swap them for Xabi Alonso, who would not be devasted with a move to Barca as he is from Cataluna and his father played for them. Rafa, understandably, isn't keen on letting his most expensive signing leave after such a succesful spell at Anfield so far.
2) Having released Bolo Zenden, sold Mark Gonzalez and is currently trying to offload Harry Kewell, Rafa is in the Hunt for two left wingers who can both compete for places in the first team. the first is the much reported Florent Malouda from Lyon, who isn't cheap! approx £13 million. The second would be Valencia's Spanish International David Silva, costing slightly less at around £8 million. Both are quality players and have different qualities meaning that they have a lot to offer Rafa and Liverpool.
3) Rafa has wanted Daniel Alves since 2004 when he was at Valencia, which is fair, he will develop into the natural replacement for Cafu in the Brazil national team and is the shining light Sevilla's Eufa cup winning team two years in a row. An exciting attacking player who would be an addition on the right side as a Full–back behind Jermaine Pennant or ahead of Steve Finnan. With Finnan reaching the ripe old age of 32, Liverpool will only have 2 years left of Finnan's usual play (Premierships most effective full–back) so as Alves is only 24 and would be a great man to take the right–back slot on a full time basis at that time.
4) Sami Hyypia has been assured by Rafa Benitez that he has a future at the club. This came directly from Sami himself. Not a surprise as he is still the most commanding defender at the club with heading ability that exceeds anyone I have seen in a while (although Vidic is decent) and he is a great man to go on to a coaching role to educate some of the young defenders that Liverpool have at the moment like Antwi, Hobbs etc
5) Rafa thinks that David Villa is too expensive. Everything makes sense except for the price tag. The same goes for Fernando Torres.
Other striking options are:
David Trezeguet (ok, Juve are back in Serie A but he is still after a move)
Dimitar Berbatov (who stated after the champions league defeat (with his then team Bayer Leverkusen) stated that he had never seen better fans than Liverpool fans and it would be a dream come true to play for a club like that)
Ruud Van Nistelrooy (a proven Premiership and European goalscorer, angry at his treatment by the hands of Alex Ferguson, what else do you need to be loved by thousands of Liverpool fans?)
And that's it for now. Oh, the Milito deal is the one I would put my money on!
Lets keep things as realistic as possible, otherwise we'll waste twenty minutes every day Reading people's Champ Manager dreams!
Walter Smith had been checking on several targets before the end of the season and he plans to bring in 6 new player to add to the 3 bosman arrivals.
He will not be pushed into releasing Svensson, sebo, sionko or Buffel as he would rather retain them than give massive pay offs.
Buffel and Sionko should move on but Svenson&Sebo will stay and fight for their place.
Smith was also very impressed with the O'Conner/ Boyd partnership for Scotland!
The new faces arriving will be from the following:
Weaver/ Wright/ DeVries/ Shabaan/ Alexander/ Galacher
FULL BACK –
Alexander/ Whittiker/ Hart/ Neilson/ McNaughton
Hammel/ Eagles/ McFadden
McCulloch/ Brellier/ Hendrie
O'Connor/ Kooverman/ Phillips/ Vassel.
My GUESS is:
1. DeVries (Bosman) Dunfermline
2. Alexander (250,000) Preston
3. Webster (750,000) Wigan
4. Hammel (450,000) Liverpool
5. McCulloch (750,000) Wigan
6. O'Connor (2.5million) Loko Moscow
this will leave about 500k to 1m for Januray
McGregor – DeVries
Hutton – Alexander
Smith – Murray
Webster – Ehiogu
Weir – Broadfoot – Svensson
Hammell – Burke – Novo
Ferguson – Hendami
Thomson – Shinnie
McCulloch – Adam
Boyd – Darchville – Sebo
O'Conner – Gow
With the arrival of both Scott McDonald from Motherwell and Chris Killen from Hibs, expect to see Craig Beattie and either one of Kenny Miller or Maciej Zurawski leave Celtic's revolving door. The club will buy 1 or 2 players to help the club compete at European level but the players signed are likely to be Defenders or Midfielders mainly due to the Defence's lack of European expierience and the midfield being short of a player or 2 due to Lennons departure and the possibility of Gravesen and Jarosik following suit. Players who WONT sign for Celtic are Bellamy and Appiah simply because of the increasing interest from bigger clubs across Europe who can offer Champions League Football. Rest assured that following the capture of Killen, the rest of Celtic's transfer kitty will be spent in England or the Continent
Celtic for 3–in–a–row. HAIL HAIL!
Christian Dailly has been offered a 2yr contract by the Fir Park club. Rumour is, depending on the tabled offer, he is keen to return to Scotland for the last swansong of his career.
Also, Craig Dargo from ICT and John Sutton from St Mirren set to sign in the next few days.
Liverpool rumours, Liverpool are set to sign Dani Alves after his agent admitted the players is set to leave in the summer to a bigger club. Rafa will be moving quickly to sign many players to get them at a lower price now rather than wait to pay over the top on the last day of transfer window as he has done before. Rumous he will resign are rubbish as he has come out and said he has the backing of the new owners to go for the players he wants. We need this to happen as Man United and other teams have signed big names and we are yet to sign any. Other players we are signing are Milito for 8mil, Simao 8 mil, Malouda 10 mil, eto'o 25 mil and maybe Torres for around 20 mil. There will also be a lot of youth coming in as we have laready signed the two hungarians and the sweed. Orch
I`m a friend of gavin mcann and I know he was having talks with Bolton last Monday.
Steven Naismith to Rangers.
I am a Rangers fan, and we will NOT be signing Steven Naismith, we do not want him, never have and will not sign him.
We have signed Alan Gow and are signing Lee McCulloch, both play the exact same positions as Naismith. The only other forward player that will be signed is a striker out and out to partner Boyd.
We will sign:
(Goalie) . as back–up
(Right–back) . as back up like McNamee or Hart
(a striker) . not Naismith
There won't be any Alan Smith or Pizarro, it just won't happen, we'll only sign 4 more players McCulloch, McNamee, Carroll and Feiunduno (as examples)
There will only be about £4m spent this summer.
Only players leaving will be Klos, Ponroy, Sionko, N'Diaye, Rae, Prso and Sebo (on loan)
Naismith definetly won't be signing, we have not been watching him, if we wanted him we would have signed him salready, we have signed Gow and McCulloch (soon), we never paid £650,000 for Scott McDonald because it was too much, so no way will we pay £1, 750,000 for Naismith.
Hi I am friends with a member of The Arsenalnal groundstaff, and they have told me that Craig Bellamy, micah Richards, and Steven Taylor have all been seen at the Emirates recently.
Dom the man
Roy Keane is all set to make his first two signings of the summer as Jason Koumas and Darren Bent on their way to The Stadium Of Light. However the total will mount to £11 million (£6million = Bent and £5million = Koumas) this will pave the way for Graham Kavanagh to make his move back to his hometown Ireland, also on the move is last years star Nyron Nosworthy who is on his way to Tottenham. Believe me these are from reliable sources!
Big Sam will sign the following players by this time next week:
Darren Ambrose (returning to St. James, yes that's right)
This is from a reliable source, very close to the club.
Liverpool will announce the siging of Mancini from Roma and Adriano from Inter Tom afternoon. In addition Dos Santos will be reveled after the Spanish league is over. Pato have also signed. Militio move have collapsed, now it is going to be Mexes from Roma again. Pool are also trying to finalise Tevez for 15m and maybe Amuri is coming if so Crouch and BEllamy will be shown the DOOR. We need the Titleeeeeeeeee
Michael Owen will sign involving a swap for Defoe, talks have been ongoing for a couple of weeks, and all that needs to be setled are the players agreeing. 100% true.
Busy days in the Scottish Lower Leagues early in the transfer window.
Relegated Airdrie United are set to make a double swoop on local rivals Albion Rovers for two of their top players, midfielder Scott Chaplain who netted 23 goals last season and composed defender Gordon Lennon as they look to rise straight up from the Second Division.

New Albion Rovers boss John McCormack is attempting to lure DumBarton centre forward John Gemmell, who played under him at Queen's Park, to Cliftonhill also. McCormack may also secure the services of former Stenhousemuir striker Paul McGrillen and ex Elgin midfielder Jamie McKenzie.
Cowdenbeath's young forward Liam Buchanan is set to sign for SPL side Inverness Caledonian Thistle while DumBarton are set to sign Albion Rovers forward David McFarlane.
Released Partick Thistle pair Stephen McConalogue and Derek Young could join up with old boss Dick Campbell at Jags First Division rivals Ross County who have recently added Tony Bullock to their squad while County and Thistle are both interested in signing ex Queen's Park, Airdrie, Hearts, Kilmarnock and Gretna midfielder Neil MacFarlane.

From a very good source, these are Sheffield Wednesday's targets:
Neil Alexander&Lee Grant
Richard Hinds, Craig Moore, Billy Jones
Mickael Forsell (loan)
Leicester have signed Carl Cort after his release from Wolves.
Rangers are set to hijack Laryea Kingston's move to Hearts early next week. Expect rejection from Smith and Pizzaro (smoke screens from Brown transfer) to be found out next week.
We are also set to lose out on Steven Naismith, and expect him to sign for Celtic in the next fortnight.
Norwich City will go in for Bradley Wright–Phillips from Southampton,
it is rumoured that £500,000 will be able to land the young striker, Grant has been a long time
admirerer, and will place a bid if he fails to land Scunthorpe's Billy Sharp.
West brom are set to go through a drastic change of playing staff over the summer as well as some going more will be coming to strenghten the squad
Gera, Koumas, Kamara, Davis, Watson, Hartson, Perry, Albrectson.
have been roumoured to be interested in
Wes hoolihan – livingston
Billy Sharp – Scunthorpe (Bid accepted I'm told)
Chris Brunt – sheff weds
Leon Barnett – Luton
Marek saganowski – Troyes
Rob Jones – Hibs
plus some signings from abroad its going to be an interesting time at the Albion this summer.
All the rumours linking Thierry Henry to Liverpool may be true but to suggest that Barca would pay £17 million as well as a much younger Samuel Eto'o for the Frenchman is farfetched – surely.
And anybody who thinks Dirk Kuyt is leaving Anfield – Wrong. He has just modelled the new away kit and is 1 of just 8 players who's position is completely safe. The others being Gerrard, Mascherano, Agger, Crouch, Hyypia, Carragher and Reina.
Sami Hyypia has been told that he has another year at Anfield, which paves the way for Gabriel Paletta to leave on loan.
Hello everyone, I've got some rumours. The source is VERY reliable source.
We are very close to signing Brazilian striker Frederico Chaves Guedes from Lyon for 9 million.
A member of my family works at Bodymoor (that's all I can say)
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!
Sunderland will land out of favour Manchester United keeper kuscak, I cnt spell! as Man United are geting Celtic keeper arther Boruc.
Also I have heard that diego folan had put into his new contract that he can leave for 6.7m and Sunderland are set to offer this in the next couple of weeks. These reports are coming out of Spain. !
Allyerdyce will sign Ben Haim Davies, Nugent, Barton, Jagielka, Baines
Viduka signs for the scum Newcastle today. My cousin works at the local paper and told me it's tonights rumours. Boro offerered 40K for 2 years but typical modern footballer says it's not enough. Hopefully he'll do his usual and get injured for a season or so untill he needs a new contract.
Some Newcastle rumours I've heard (31/ 05/ 07) :
Viduka WILL join on a free – wants to stay in his Harrogate home, and is reluctant to sign a new deal at the boro.
Ben Haim will also be a joining his old boss at Newcastle.
Those 2 are the definites. Now for the strong possibilites:
Parker to leave for the irons, if this happens, his replacement will be Barton. Good chance Barton would sign even if Parker stayed.
Baines is high on Big Sams priorities.
These are all I know – but there will be a lot more comings and goings. A lot depends on what happens when new shareholder Ashley meets FFS + the board, mainly if he can obtain over 50% of the shares. Expect a good few more players to be shipped out by Allardyce following the releases on Bramble, Moore, Bernard, Pav and Gooch.
I've heard a lot of suggestions that either Owen or Oba will be leaving – don't know 100% on this though.
2 new backroom staff within the next few days too with a lot more behind the scenes changes to happen.
Im a Liverpool fan and I want to hear some rumours about different clubs not just Chelsea/ man u/ Arsenal/ Liverpool, lets get some rumors bout Birmingham/ Middlesbrough/ mkdons/ Walsall/ Coventry. MICKY ADAMS WILL BE THE NEW MK DONS MANAER, THEY WILL HIM THAT THEY WANT TO BRING GOOD PLAYERS AND LOVLY FOOTBALL, AND TO GET INTO LEAGUE 1. HE WILL BRING In [Andrew Whing][Andy Johnson][Michael Svensson]AND MORE!THEY WILL BRING In CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYER THAT HAVNT REALLY PLAYED THIS SEASON BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN BETTER PLAYER THAN THEM, BUT PLAYER WILL WANNA COME 2 THEM BECAUSE OF THERE NEW STADUIM.
Chris Sutton to return to Norwich Also signing of Billy Sharpe for 2.5m next week earnshaw to be sold to Portsmouth Reading or Birmingham
Derby – Gadbsy has confided in a fellow millionaire mate that Billy Davis is a complete nightmare, behaves like a teanager and is 10 times the handful Cloughie ever was. Time for a sharp exit?
This is a rumour but it could become fact. if West Ham finalise the signing of Scott paker there next target is Tim Cahill West Ham should of signed him when we had the chance when he was at Millwall but reports say that lucus Neil will try to persuade him to comedown with Reo Coker heading in the other direction. I have to laugh at coker cause 1 he is not a great player and 2 he wants to play for Arsenal or Man United all you people out there that think coker is the next best thing and you will love to sign him you wait till half way through the season on the second season he will be great first few games then he becomes lazy there is only one good thing he can do which is lose the ball track back and win it. he never shoots he never makes a great pass. West Ham fans that watched him week in week out liked I did would agree with me I'm sure.
My best mate if friends with one of The Arsenalnal players who have been told the following players are coming in before the start of next year.
The players were not told the amount so I am speculating as to the amount
Kerlon – £4mill
Robinho – £12
Ribery – £12mill
obviously that means Reyes out and I personally think although Freddie doesn't want to leave he will want first team football!
I'm a steward at Goodison park, and I wos there this week picking up last seasons bonuses when guess who I seen there : Phil Bardsley and kieran Richardson
both ment to be looking for consistant 1st team football and David Moyes seems to have won the race for the Man United players signatures
Hello there people, just heard from a reliable sourse inside Celtic Park that Stephen Appiah will be Celtics 4th signing of the transfer window, for a transfer fee in the region of £3M. Mon the Hoops
Man United dealings: Huntelarr will be the last signing for this window 15mill. Outs will be Heinze, Richardson and Saha for a total of 18mill. This brings the transfer budget to approx 50mill spent as planned. There will be some loans to Sunderland involving Dong or Rossi as striker asssistance and Eagles or Evans in the midfield. This will be sorted out after the transfers are complete mid June. Man UnitednitedMick
I was at PridePark today and saw Billy D walking around the ground with none other than, Darren Bent!
The word is Derby cannot afford to buy him but as he wants Premiership football next year and Charlton still want to keep him he will move on loan to Derby and then go back to Charlton the following season when they are promoted.
from Derby Spy!
Lfc signings when Rafa returns from his hols ; silva from Valencia 8 mill, Milito from real zara 6 mill, eto'o from Barcelona 22 mill and one or two smaller signings

owen/ Torres/ McCarthy– (10m)
I work in a burger van outside Aston Villa's training ground and in the last few days I have seen Jermaine jenas, sol campbell and Craig Bellamy all being shown the facilities.
Billy Sharp to Sheffield United. Robson preparing a late bid, as he's only just got into the job. Sharp waiting for Blades bid, would relish the chance to play for the team he loves and supports.
If no Premiership clubs come in, Koumas will be another player to arrive at Bramall Lane. Along With Andy Ried.
I was near Ashburton Grove yesterday and I saw Fernando Torres getting out of his car and walking to the Stadium with men who looked like board members. They're discussing a possible swap deal with Athletico for Reyes and Flamini to swap with Torres.
Man United Rumours
I HAVE A VERY RELIABLE SOURCE AND IF YOU CHECK ON THE WEBSITE I WAS THE FIRST TO SAY ABOUT THE ANDERSON AND NANI DEAL EVEN THOUGH MANY THOUGHT IT WAS RIDICULOUS!
I ALSO KNOW FOR A Fact THAT FERGIE WAS In HOLLAND WATCHING THE DUTCH PLAY OFF AND In PARTICULAR KLAAS JAN HUNTELAAR. HE IS EXTREMELY IMPRESSED AND EXPECT A DEAL TO BE REACHED FOR ABOUT £15 In THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS!
: ) (:

In– Jamie Smith
Bolton utility player Henrik pederson is a surprise transfer target for for Scottish giants Rangers. The danish hitman is available on a free transfer after being shown the door by new Bolton boss Sammy Lee as he looks 2 rebuild his squad for next season. Pedersen's versatility has tempted Walter Smith into making a bid for the veteran who's strongest position is striker.
Reading look set to win the chase for Robbie Fowler.
Arsenal ins: fabianski – done
Bendtner – loan return
song – loan return
Simao – 9mil
Arsenal outs: baptista – done!
Reyes – Sevilla
aliadere – boro'
ljungberg – free transfer
To the Norwich fan who thinks Birmingham are going to give you 4 million and cameron jerome for earnshaw, what planet are you on! Jerome cost us 4 million last summer and he is still only 19 and has showed bags of potential and was one of our best players towards the end of last season. He is worth more than an earnshaw and wouldn't give up Premiership football to drop down to the championship, keep on dreaming.
Birmingham to sign:

Lee Cook and Ray Jones will complete the short trip across London to join Fulham in a £5m joint deal. Watford will make a cool £1m on a sell on Clause from Cook.
QPR could replace Cook with Julian Gray who was recently released by Birmingham. Rohan Ricketts could also join but QPR are worried about some personal problems he is facing.
Another new signing will be Lee Camp on a permanent basis. £500,000 will be the price and Camp will negioate a package with Derby that will ease wage concerns he had.
JG won't be given to much of the £5 million to spend as the club needs money for bills. He will be looking to add 2 versitale full backs, 2 additional midfielders and a striker to partner Blackstock in the first team. He will have about £1m to fund these signings.
Watford will sign Marlon Harewood and Jobi McAnuff for 500k–1.5 mill.
Following the £5.5m signing of Gareth Bale, Tottenham left back Benoit Assou–Ekotto will be given a free transfer, paving the way for a move to French champions Lyon. Spurs have Bale and Lee Young–pyo as their first choice left backs, so Assou–Ekotto is deemed surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane. New Lyon boss Alain Perrin sees him as an ideal candidate to replace Eric Abidal, who is almost certain to join Real Madrid for £9m as a replacement for Roberto Carlos.
