Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Id be very suprised if Maloney went to Villa. Martin O'Neill never gave him a look in Celtic, and Strachan was the one that gave him his break through season. Stranger things have happened though.100% True
Arsene Wenger is going to sign Julio Baptista on a permanent deal in january, he will also sign Phillip Lahm for 12 million Euros + Robin V.P
Trust Me On ThisTo the person who said bale (soton) would be garaunteed first team football at arsenal how does that work? arsenal are on the verge of signing eric abibal from lyon who will go straight into the left back position. Then bale will be stuck in the reserves for a year and will want to leave.To the man with the list of players going to man u with a % next to them. You cannot just list every stupid rumour on this site then be called a reliable source. And anyone who talkes to joe glazer on sunday tea time is a dillusional wierdo.
You see i have a friend who is friends with a guy who plays football with some other person who is Mr. Wengers nephew. . (NO!)
Arsenal to sign (possibly)
Chindi Ogbukae (Edu)
Erik Abidal (The NOTW shocking star not Zidane)
Tom ClancyAmazing that someone on here thinks he played golf with O'Leary at Hill Top, well on that day pal O'Leary was in fact in Spain with his family, and was interviewed on Sentena TV about Roy Keane and the Sunderland and Quinn saga.
Souness is in the frame, fact due to him and Pearce big friends.
O'Leary and Hendrie have not spoken since he left villa so where you get your info from is probably out of the beano comic.
OK the facts for WBA, Souness, Cotterill and Nigel Pearson are big contenders for the job, Peace would like to promote Pearson who is highly regarded within the game for his coaching methods, and the players have a high respect for him, but Peace has worries that like many other top coachs/Assitants cannot take the next step to management.
The other idea is that Pearson will become coach and the club install a Director of Football who will deal with the management side.
WBA are looking for the cheapest way. as usualArsenal have spent big money in recent years. Arsene Wenger shelled out £10m on Francis Jeffers as well as £13m on Sylvain Wiltord and, the current record signing, £18m on Jose Antonio Reyes from Sevilla in January 2004. However, Reyes has now been farmed out on loan to Real Madrid for the season, with midfielder Julio Baptista replacing him at the Emirates. Wenger, though, is lining up a move for a striker in the new year which could potentially break the club's transfer record. Barcelona forward Samuel Eto'o might be a target, but I hear that Villarreal striker Diego Forlan might be on his way to North London in a deal that could cost up to £21m. The Arsenal board revealed this week that they have £36m in transfer funds to spend at the minute, as well as any money they may receive from sales in January, so cash for a mega bid when the transfer window re-opens is available should Wenger opt to use it.I know this is a rumours site but i have to post this. I am deeply ashamed of the west hams fans for th way they acted on sunday. Roeder was waving to the travelling toon army after they chanted his name. There is nothing wrong wiv acknowleging your own fans. But the remarks by some west ham fans calling roeder "tumour boy" and "why didnt you die 3 years ago". I find this disgusting and th people who said this should be ashamed. I have never heard english fans go that far before. Anyway newcastle will sign a short term replacement as given is injured the names floating around are Paul Gerrard and Ian WalkerArsenal have first refusal on SWP. It was part of the Cole/Gallas deal. This is why Arsenal accepted alot less than the 30million they had originally asked for, the deal couldn't be completed on transfer deadline day as SWP is waiting until Jan to see if he features in Chelseas plans.A S T O N V I L L A N E W S
Forget all about shady South Americans the club is Randolph Lerners, he's not a front for any one else !
On the transfer front, come January 1st expect the incomming list of players to include :
Owen Hargreaves (outbidding Man U) £13M
Matt Murray for 3M
Gareth Bale for 3.5M
Jan Claas Huntelaar for 10M
Shaun Wright Phillips for 10M
Villa now going places under Randy Lerner & Martin O'Neill.
The V I L L A revolution has already started ! ! !There are many rumours going around about a possible take over at Liverpool FC, which would be nesiccary in order for Liverpool to prove that they have finacial backing for the prepossed redevelopment of the Stanley Park area and new stadium. It is looking more possible thanks to Steve Morgan who owns a 5% stake of Liverpool. His offer would be nothing above 100m however it would create thousands of new shares which current chairman and majority shareholder David Moores could buy. This would give Liverpool more money to spend, keep David Moore as chairman which he has made clear he isn't willing to sell up and give Steve Morgan more control over and in Liverpool FC which is what he wants. Now to some proposed January transfers Daniel Alves will be coming to Liverpool for around 8-10m and Rafa will add some squad players. And the wild card for today is that I hear around Melwood that dispite the fact we have Jermaine Pennant Rafa is willing to make another bid for Simao Sambrosa due to persistend rumours of Harry Kewell's departure to ethier Tottenham, Arsenal or Inter Milan.Expecting Vicente, Sneijder, Downing, Alves to come to anfield this Janjaury. rafa is interest in youngster. .but he will bid for David Villa about 10m ALso he will look the retirement of Fowler and Hyypia.
Hyypia and Fowler Retirement 60%
I am not so sure about this but it is trueIts funny reading the rumours!
they clearly have been read from the newspapers and sources such as SKysport or club websites.
Man U will not get Torres because he don't wana leave his home team whohe supports. The news of Liverpool takeover bid was on the website-so your dad didnt tell you. Money is needed and the deadline is soon.

You heard it here first, friendsGareth Bale to Arsenal from Southampton.Brazilian wonderkid Anderson will either got to Arsenal, Barcelona, Chelsea, Hamburg, Madrid or Valencia. Arsenal are interested in Joao Moutinho and Borja Oubina. Eric Abidal and Oscar Ustari will be signed in January.Plymouth argyle will wrap up the loan signing/to be permanent in january deal for hibs rob jones. The highly rated 6'5 centre back is believed to be watched before coming to plymouth on the monday to finalise the deal. Source : alex fraser.I Live and work in Virginia, U.S. There a big rumour that a big business man in the football (soccer) industry is looking to invest in a smaller club and Notts County has caught his attention, the tradition of the club has caught his eye and maybe there is finally some investment for the small midlands clubHuntelaar is goin everton for 12 mil in january. nugent is goin to fulham. this is absolutley true.Ken Bates has been impressed with the start Paul Lambert has made at Wycombe and may make a shock move to appoint him as new manager. Bates has looked into Lamberts backgroung and has heard good things from the people in Germany who put Lambert through his coaching badges. Lambert is seen as a lower risk than Wise and a better financial prospect than Curbishley, O'Leary and Hoddle.Man U could turn to Bolton skipper Kevin Nolan in January for around £6 million, however the boyhood Liverpool fan desperately wants a move to Anfield and Benitez could be on the hunt for a more long term replac
ement for Hamman in the next year. Expect Nolan to move to either rivals in January or August!
