According to the Spanish media (Superdeporte, Canal 9, Spanish teletext) Richard Law (Arsenal executive) was in Valencia to try and prise away gifted Spanish goalkeeper Vicente Guaita with a derisory offer. Tipped one day to take over from Casillas as the national goalkeeper, Guaita's get-out clause is 30 million Euros. Valencia told Law in no uncertain terms that they wouldn't even listen to offers under 20 million Euros, as Valencia need Guaita, who shares his goalkeeping duties with equally on-form Diego Alves. Apparently Arsenal offered just £6m (7m Euros) which Valencia find insulting and sent them packing. According to today's Metro website, Arsenal are thinking of increasing the offer to around £7m, but Valencia are likely to be equally offended with this 'derisory' amount for one of Spain's future superstars.
Typical Arsenal, won't pay the money and want something for nothing. If they are interested in signing a new goalkeeper then pay the money and sign probably the most consistent goalkeeper in the premier league, Asmir Begovic. Should be able to get him for around £15 million
25 Aug 2013 14:35:04
One of Spain's future superstars? Are you serious? De gea plays in a tougher league, younger and generally has more ability

According to Spanish sports paper Superdeporte, Swansea are in the running to sign Valencia's Pablo Piatti, whom Valencia are desperate to sign. Other interested teams include Getafe and Celta de Vigo. Stoke City, which has been mentioned as a possible destination for the Argentinian on this website, is not mentioned as one of the possibilities. A lot will depend on Piatti himself, though. He wants to stay at Valencia, and refused to go to Metalist Kharkiv in Ukraine for 5 million Euros at the beginning of August. Valencia punished Piatti by not bringing him with them on their successful US tour earlier this month. Metalist are probably now out of the picture, which leaves him open to other options, and Swansea appear to be one of the favourites.
Is this player any good?
I read yesterday that Everton were interested a while back (as well as Wigan more recently) and it was suggested that his £30+m. buy out clause was met if another club wanted him.
Suppose that speaks for itself for his potential quality and his current club desperately need to free up some money (reported to be on 20k a week post tax) so he's available at a bargain price.
Don't think he'll be coming to us though because laudrup has already stated he won't be going back to Spain for anymore players this transfer window!
Piatta defo ain't going to come here and to be fair I wouldn't want him! Palace look set to get Yohan Mollo whos much more of a talent for 2 mil bit surprised we haven't chased that one down! Mark Cartwright shouldn't even work there absolutely useless person! let hughes do it himself!
One cap for Argentina but not in the Valencia squad this year. Has had a decent goal scoring record but he is small - 5' 4" I think. Valencia want his salary off the books
24 Aug 2013 13:33:57
Expect to see Barry Bannan this week sign for Blackpool with a fee of around 750k
Not a chance. Oyston looking for players under 300 thousand or loan players that all.
Bannan will not becoming to the seaside here at blackpool as they can not agree personal terms however he will be joining blackburn in stead as personal terms have now been sorted out watch this spave he will become a blackburn player by the end of the transfewr market fact
Would be great!
24 Aug 2013 10:16:27
Reading that city are interested in Richie wellens, any truth in this ed?
Would have thought Man City were looking for more high profile players than Richie Wellens. Give us a clue as to which City

Doncaster Rovers Kyle Bennett has been linked with a loan move to Bury until January meanwhile Lee Croft is being observed by their Rivals Rochdale
I heard both are going to Dale.
Blackwell said there will be no more signings
Well that is wrong because as soon as we get rid of Carson we are getting Brian Jensen
BIG STEP DOWN FOR CROFT if he ends up in league 2, mind you he let's his agent do all his work and his agent didn;t tell him about the offer at Oldham so he's no club.
POTY at Oldham and now he's been replaced by a younger fitter RW. Shame as he's a decent player if he keeps his weight right.
Let Bennett go he's awful
Lee Croft is a steady no frills winger. Very cool calm and collective, and very effective. We had him on loan at Town, would be a good acquisition for Donny imo.
Kyle Bennett Was only good in his first season because he did try and run at them, now he's rubbish who thinks he's that good he can do what he likes at a club that is better than him tbh I think we should let him go because we have Duffy now and let's be honest Duffy is Quality
Na bury only need a new keeper after rob laitens performence away at norwich last night and he did nt play well agenst burton albion so a new keeper or try that riece charls cook but we defo need a new keeper!!

Tresor Kandol could return to Luton. John Still knows him from their time at D&R.
24 Aug 2013 11:49:54

Adkins wants to complete the signings of David Vaughan and either Mladen Petric or Joseph Akpala before the end of the transfer window. Mikele Leigertwood looks set to leave the club with Brighton, Burnley and Leeds interested
24 Aug 2013 18:20:28
Looking to sign Nick Adams from Crawley
24 Aug 2013 09:10:12
Exeter are now in for free agents
Emile Mpenza (striker)
Jonathan forture (defender)
Sammy kuffour (defender)
Iain turner (goalkeeper
Tisdale only expects to bring in two of these players because of the funds made available to him and Reading's Nicholas Bignall also being a target
Very unlikely indeed though we do need goals from somewhere. 2 away games and none scored.
24 Aug 2013 03:03:16
League one side Walsall have approached Leicester about taking Hungarian striker Marko Futacs on loan for a month due to the demand on his squad in September. Walsall will play 7 games between 28th August - 28th September.
In the Express and star Dean Smith confirmed he does have cash available should he need to bring in any new players. But he is unlikely to make any moves before the transfer window closes on September 2 and will use the emergency loan Market to bolster his squad after this date
23 Aug 2013 23:54:51
Reading are looking to tie up deals for Mladen Petric and Joseph Akpala before the transfer deadline. It looks as though no players will be sold but Mikele Leigertwood could be loaned out with no option of recall. Leeds, Brighton and Burnley are interested
After that shocking showing today against Blackpool looks like we could do with a defender or 2 as well. not good enough from RFC would not be surprised if we do not make it back up this season. Adkins still tinkering with formations and squad, Get it sorted spend some money!
Reading have only had Akpela training with them for a week so N. A. Could have a look at a look at him and N. A. has said that week probably was not long enough to see the best of him but has not ruled out signing him yet. So earlier reports on here suggesting he was signing were a little bit wide of the mark but N. A. has said he is expecting two playets in before the window closes.
We have played four games, some of you need get a grip and calm down. its a long season.

Jake Cassidy wants away from Wolves. I have heard from a very good source that he is fed up sitting on the bench week in week out. and wants regular pitch time. Tranmere Rovers are keen to bring him in. Kenny Jacket is reluctant to let him go as he sees him a a good squad player but if he can keep hold of Doyle and Sako then he has told Jake that he will let him go.

Ipswich to do last day deals with left back AAron Cresswell moving to southampton with Billy Sharp and another Southampton player moving to Town also Ipswich to get 2 millon hence not having to give Tranmere as much only a % of the 2 mill rather than the 4 millon if it was all cash. McCarthy to sign or loan left back for season
24 Aug 2013 12:45:31
I do not understand why Southampton would offer this much for Cresswell when they already have Luke Shaw, arguably one of the best left backs in the EPL. Would definitely be on the cards if Shaw was to move on, however it seems that they are not willing to sell.
Just to disabuse you of any notion that you can scam Tranmere -all transfer values include cash and the value of players included - both for VAT / League levies and retrospective payments. If anything it will work yhe other way because if sharp is part of the arrangement then any figure included could not be less that the value of any bid made for the player in the last 90 days - so if Reading / Donny or Forest did bid 1. 75m then that is the minimum that could be included - if there had been no bids to establish a "market value" for the player then you could play a few games - but on this one - no chance
Southampton do need back up for LB seen as Danny Fox is nowhere near Premier League standard, the other player that you believe is part of the deal may well be Danny Fox.
Not going to happen. Pure fiction.
Live in Southampton heard sharp is town bound haven't heard the swap deal though
By next season Matty Targett from the youth will be challenging Shaw for his spot so their is no need for a back up

Defoe deal to Swansea to be rubber stamped this weekend.
wages a probable issue, however signing on fee and performance bonus should sweeten the way.
Bit older than usual Swansea signing however Just the sort of player Swansea need and very different from anything there already
Defoe would be a great signing. He definitely knows where the net is.
A lot of strikers especially in Spain and Italy are peaking at the age of 30-32. Look at Drogba in UK how well he is performing at the age of 35.
Think spurs want 6 million for him
I like this rumour and if it's no a free, I'm sure the signing on bonus will make up for the difference in wages. Could see him fitting in lovely with our squad in his last few years!
Defoe is to old for us we need young talent who has potential!
We don't need young talent we need a decent aged striker with prem experience
