Following the club record signing of Dave Kitson Stoke will break the record again to sign Jermaine Pennant. Also Tony Pulis could hijak Pascal Chimwonda's move to Sunderland, other players Stoke are strongly linked with are Anthony Gardner, Sean Davies, Robbie Savage and Damien Duff. Pulis still has around £15 million left to spend so expect some big signings.
After signing Scott Carson from under the noses of Stoke City, Tony Mowbray is attempting to put another dent in Stoke's survival hopes by signing the potter's number one target Robbie Savage. Expect the baggies to finish mid table at the very least.
I've heard Hull City are going to make a massive signing this week. supposedley it's Lee Bowyer. Lee Bowyer. He is player you would least to have in a Premier League team.
As well as there pursuit of the Tottenham quartet, Sunderland will give Sebastian Larrson the chance to rejoin the Premier League next season.
The Swedish midfielder is believe to valued in the region of £6 million.
I have some news regarding Liverpool, whoever said the other day that D. I. C will buy Liverpool or at least 50 percent between august and January is correct. I know Daniel Stuart who works for Amanda Staveley who's in charge of D. I. C s bid for Liverpool, he told me the reason Liverpool havnt the money to spend on players and are relying on selling to buy is because they (both hicks and gillett or just gillett) are in talks again about selling to D. I. C, this is why the current owners do not want to spend any of there own money when they are about to sell, remember between august and January you
Tottenham will go in 4 fabiano as berba will b going to Man United. Ramos will also try to sign ruud van nistlerooy or even make a suprise move for Andy johnson. fabiano will definitely cum and if AJ or RVN do not cum then Ramos will try 4 obafemi Martins and/or Anelka
I have it on good authority that the club will make a move for Egyptian international forward Mohamed Fadl this week. He currently plays for Ismaily.
Beefy, burly Watford forward Darius "The Elbow" Henderson could sign for Promotion certs Sheff United next week, possibly Monday, for a fee of up to £4.5 million. Henderson, who seems to have blood on his shirt every match, wants to move back to Yorkshire and is looking forward to being James Beattie's understudy.
UP THE BLADES, UP THE DARIUS.
Yeah we do think we are better than what we are. when you mups going to stop believing everything Murray tells you.
Pffft Pat McCourt. Some signing he is bhoys, did not even make it to Motherwell couple of seasons back. Enjoy him.
Rangers on the other hand, have brought in fresh legs with Lafferty. Expect to see more recruits coming into the midfield. The Davis transfer will drag on like Naismith, he will be a bear before the window shuts.
The big name signing will be Gattusso. Constant speculation of his wife being homesick or pregnant will see him return to Scottish football. SDM is looking to buy his contract out at Milan.
Hopefully a decent partner for King Carlos will be brought in. And someone to replace the diddy Broadfoot.
Rangers will clear out players like Cousin and Gow who are no longer needed for Walters revival.
Abacus is fixed Bhoys.
"Loserfool fans, makin me laugh now, few weeks ago barry was going to be a massiv signin, now it looks like you are not going to get him, he's over rated haha, remember Carsons valuation of £12 million, Crouch of 15 fair nuff theyv gone for less bu they wer valued at that to start with, pfft pathetic.
Neway Villa will look to sign a right back before the second leg of intertoto preferably miguel from Valencia, also need another forward louis Saha being considered, also do not rule Villa out for David Bentley. Stoke shud sign anthony Gardner and marton fulop in next few weeks, Liverpool will not sign senna for £8 million, he's valued at 20 so yanoo keep it real"
Loserfool fans, haha very clever. how long did it take you to think of that one. maby you thought of it when your small club was playing in the interto cup to QAULIFY for the micky mouse cup.
Barry is not worth £18 million, simple as. if Alonso is worth £16 million and he is younger (and better), why is Barry worth that ridiculous amount.
anyway LFC INS:
Keane – £17 million + £3 million in add ons (if we advance fromfourth in league)
Barry – 16 + Finnan. o'Neill is only stalling so he does not lose face and so the fans do not revolt. expect it to be " undisclosed "
silva – 16 – £18 million
a big rumour going around is £15 million + Alonso for " Kun " Aguero. or Alonso simply going to Athletico Madrid for £15 million and LFC getting first dibbs on Aguero
Veloso has signed for Arsenal £17 million – It will be announced on Wednesday
As a Tottenham fan, it will be disappointing to see Keane and Berbs leave but the bottom line is they are both around 28 and have only a couple of years left to fulfill their dream of playing in the Champions League so if they do go, I for one wish them the best.
However, we will get between 40–45 million in return which is a profit of around 22–27 million just in transfer money. reasonable business in anyone's language and with the £23 million we are getting for Chimbo, Tainio, Steed and Kaboul the Bentley saga will finally come to an end with his name on the dotted line which will leave Juande heaps of change to play with.
As for the person who said Voronin is on the way to the Lane. give me a break, he is just one of the plethera of dud signings Rafa has made over the past few seasons that is left you financially bereft. You might as well face up to it now, by this time next year Rafa will be long gone and the rumours will be all about where Torres will end up. so enjoy him while you can chumps, mid–table beckons you.
Chelsea's targets will include Robinho, Ricardo Quaresma, Ricardo Kaka and probably David Villa. All attacking players, therefore Scolari will pick just 1 maximum 2 because of Joe Cole's amazing quality to play on both wings. Ricardo Quaresma who is Inter bound will not join. David Villa has already expressed his desire to stay in Spain so Real Madrid and FC Barcelona will have first options and will battle out the signing of him. Robinho should be a Chelsea player next season. If this goes through expect Real Madrid to go crazy and bid massive for CR7. There would have to be one more attacking player for the vicious Brazilian and Portuguese type of football. Therefore Ricardo Kaka is 75 percent a Chelsea player already but the other 25 percent remains in the hands of AC Milan who could easily turn this down. If it is turned down expect a deal to be finalised over the transfer of Andrei Arshavin as R. Abramovich seeks to bring a Russian to Chelsea. The funds are readily available but it is a matter of both clubs starting to negotiate. A player of Arshavin's quality on the left wing is what Chelsea have been looking for and have failed with bringing a man with strength, speed and versitality as well as stamina. They failed with Robben (strength), Malouda (pfft), Kalou (failing to keep intact with the ball at times) and with a 4–3–3 formation Scolari will definitely trust Arshavin with that position at left wing.
To Anyone Saying Arsenal will Sign Yaya Toure, You're Wrong; Wenger Has Full Confidence In Ramsey To Step Up To The Plate Just As Cesc Did. Either Eto'o Or Villa Will Come In To Emirates, Seeing As Neither Will Be Staying At Their Clubs; Eto'o Is Not Wanted While The Latter Is Going To Fund Valencia For The Next Season. Expect An Exodus At Valencia Soon; Silva, Villa, Hildebrand All Likely To Leave, As Is Albiol.
For all you people who say Liverpool have no money this is rubbish, we have bought our squad players already and Rafa is not wiiling to waste any more capital on second rate players. The Torres impact has taught Rafa a lot and he needs another two of his standard so nothing else will do. He is biding his time and may even wait until January to get his man. We are being linked with a lot of big names usally to put out to the press so that the real ones do not get poached by other big teams. So expect two big names at Anfield by the end of July hopefully aguero and silva. Athletico to keep aguero for another year with Alonso going the other way in a part exchange loan type deal. Silva to be part exhanged + cash with benayon as he would like to experience Spain which he has hinted suits his style of play. Hopefully the barry deal will no come off I think he is very good just not what we need.
Duno about Chris armstrong but I witnessed g Strachan do that against the Newcastle at st james's park. Newcastle won 2–1. mighty goddard with the winner
Cameron Jerome to sign for Wolves in the next 72 hours. From a very reliable source.
Robbie Keane to LFC next two weeks for £17 million + Voronin
Barry will also Join for £17 million
Eto is interested In LFC and MAY join but has had offer from Inter also
More than two years after his initial interest, Tony Pulis could renew his chase for Oguchi Onyewu. Stoke have submitted a bid, but it is supposedly in it's early stages. John Rudge is supposedly working hard on this deal as he initally spotted 'Gooch' and has been given £1.5 million to secure the deal.
Right lets clear a few thinks up.
to all clubs thinking they are signing Renato Augusto he has already sign for Bayern Munich.
Tevez is already a Man United player he had a tribunal last year and Man United payed around £18 million to the players agent
now Liverpool will sigjn Keane by the end of next week for abwt £15 million not the £20 million that is being chucked about
they will also sign marjo marin for £2 million + Voronin
and finaly they will sign Luis Garcia for £5 million
and will wait until January to sign barry
Mr Levy does not want any player at Tottenham, who is not 100 percent committed to the club. This is why Berbs and Keane will be allowed to leave. Tottenham are holding out for the best price for both players but come the start of the season they will be gone. There will be a clear out of fringe players including Chimbonda, kabul, Robinson, Gardener, and Tanio.
I have it in very good authority, (Two former Tottenham legends) that David Bentley met with the club two weeks ago and told the club he is desperate to play for us next season. This is the kind of passion we need from all our new signings. I have no other definite news on any more transfers, but the Bentley is 100 percent a Tottenham player by next weekend.
BIRMINGHAM CITY NEWS.
James Mcfadden to the Hammers in a £5.5 million pound deal which will see young Freddie sears go to brum on a season long loan and James Collins in at centre back permanent.
Stephen Kelly has interested Middlesboro, a bid may be forthcoming,
ben watson to complete a deal this week to brum, after the Stephen pearson deal breaks down.
Although the Hammers have been quiet in the trasnfer market thus far they have been busy in the background trying to tie up deals for two of the hottest stars in Brazilian football at the moment. Through the help of Kia Joorabchian (who now works as a consultant following his out–of–court settlement with the club over the Tevez–Mascherano saga) are showing a firm interest, and it is believed are in talks with one of the following players.
Hernanes at Sao Paolo.
Thiago Neves, who scored a hat–trick in the final of the Copa libertadores, at Fluminense.
This info has been passed onto me from a reliable source in Brazil. Not entirely sure on the details, but as both players are attacking creative midfielders, more likely the Hammers will bring just one of the players to East London Outfit.
Also Thiago Neves is believed to be valued by his club at £8 million, while sao paolo are determined to get a lot more than that for their prized asset – Hernanes. Which might be a stumbling block.
Both players will be involved in Beijing, and so the Hammers are keen to wrap up a deal quickly before they become more famous names, and undoubtedly their prices rise.
