The Premier League will rule in favour of Gabriel Heinze's proposed switch to Liverpool with the Argentine set to join Liverpool by the end of the week although he is unlikely to feature until the end of the month due to match fitness.

I have heard the Joe Cole rumour too as well as, of course the Deco connection. I do not think that is it is the both of them, it's either or. If Cole goes North then Deco will head to the capital.
The Belletti deal is thought to be pretty much done with further enquiries regarding Deco, possibly, but the big one is Thuram.
