Football Rumours Archive January 25 2009
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
The reason why arsenal want arshavin is because he is versetile and he can play on the right allowing walcott to play up front.
Expect to see 1 of Veloso, Barry or alonso along with Richards
I've already posted the 'Ashley to close Toon if we go down story' as a rumour I don't believe. We've now heard from a more credible source that he'll give it one year in the championship and then sell to a north–east consortium for about £50 mil if we don't go back up. The source did say that he could still close the club depending on how the fans react and if he's going to be making a massive loss anyway. Also, Bassong may be going to Villa.
If anyone knows more about this Rosicky drugs thing can they fill me in? I havent heard or found anything about this anywhere but here and in all fairness a lot of idiots post rubbish on this site. Not saying that about this rumor I just want to know more if its available. . . . . . thanks.Dialsquare77

shorey will be allowed to leave, don't no whod want him tho
with brimingham lookin for another striker, expect somebody to become unhappy if one does arrive, so possibly b 1 in 1 out for them. matty mills or calum davenport are also being monitored
Barnsley – Simon Davey to make a decision on Lokomotiv Sofia's Daniel Bogdanovic in the next few days after talks with the club.
To all the people who keep saying McCoist will be the new rangers manager !!!! Wake up !!!!
Both Ally and Walter have admitted that if they don't win the League this year they are both out the door !!!!
And with the fire sale about to start as the transfer window comes to a close with little or no reinforcmemts being brought in I just can't see it happen !!!!
SDM has also said that ally will only come in after a sucsesful season !!!!
Walters Contract is up in december and it won't be renewed !!! He planed to hand over to ally last summer if we won the league or the Uefa Cup and went out on a high !!!
So look for a new scottish manager to come in in the summer Levein McPherson and jeffries in the frame Not much compensation needed for any of them !!!
i work at under armour and the other day somebody by the name of Andrei Arshavin ordered a white cold geat mock and a red cold gear mock
Luka Modric Tottenham–Juventus. £8 million.
To the fans that say Rosicky failed a drug test and that's the reason he is out are wrong. I work as a junior physio and the team I work with are the physios workin on his rehab – he's got a rare disease on his thigh muscles and they are working on trying to get him back to full fitness. But cannot understand the injury – If they are not successful he may have 2 retire. Which is a shame!
The Guy in the Know!
OK As i said i will apologise if I got it wrong and i don't want to insult the intelligence of most LFC fans but there were some among you that insisted that Emile Heskey would join Liverpool, I was right, You must understand that if we can't we the league when we have these players why would we bother to resign them again. No, LFC have moved on with RAFA, in terms of rumour expect Aguero and Barry, these are two players in terms of development we need to look out for, and also look at Davies from Bolton, I really hope that this gets posted as its a genuine situation.
I liked to read the rumour about Anelka coming to Liverpool recently, its against my principals of Retro signings but i had to agree with comments on how Anelka wanted to stay at liverpool and the joining of him and Torres is i agree mouth watering, however compatibility is wrong just as it is with Chelsea with Drogba. Its without a doubt a case that Liverpool need a partner for Torres and the ONLY partner so far is David Villa that matches the criteria. As a secondary option Arshavin, but it looks like he's going to Arsenal. I'm not disagreeing with peoples rumours, theres a lot of mileage in whats beens said, i thinks the rumours are real but need to be realisticaly evaluated.
Micah Richards £6m
Dean Sturrige £6m
Eider Gudjohson £4m
M Harewood to Wolves / Stoke
Having been involved in the Arsavin deal to Arsenal, i am the advisor of English clubs for Zenit, there is another deal currently being discussed and that is the one to send Tymoschuk to Arsenal. Which is why some of Arsenal representatives have stayed in Zenit and not gone back even though the offer has been made to Zenit for Arshavin and negotiations have been completed. They are negotiating for Tymoschuk, expect a fee of around 10m.
Zola likes SWP and Hughes likes Upson, the exchange rate is the issue! Benayouns return is another possiblity as Raffa looks at his defense.
Glen johnson in and Niell to Pompey, watch this space
c'mon u irons
Barnsley are chasing the following players using the cash from the proposed Jamal–Campbell Ryce deal– Jurgen Immer–Heimweh (Schalke 04), Juan Nagohome (Newells Old Boys), Dieter Keintaschengeld (Borussia Dortmund B).
Arshavin to arsenal is 50–50 but i would rather prefer him not joining arsenal 15mil for a 28 yr old is such a waste & arsenal already have such attakin quality wenger is also looking at
yohan gorcuff – ac milan at loan a bordeau at the end of the season (sendros+5mil) might do it nd he bein FRENCH we can sure of him being at afc
Arsenal are still trying 2 finalise the deal 4 Arshavin, but it is looking less and less likely that the 2 clubs will come 2 an agreement.
Meanwhile, Wenger has set his sights on Micah Richards after his poor start to the season has seen him fall out of favour and thinks he can change that and will bid 7 million
After missing out on Kaka Man.City will bid 27 million 4 Werder Bremen's Diego
From a reliable insider at Parkhead, strachan has told the board he will not continue past summer 2009 hence the reason he is being given no real money to spend in January unless agreed by incoming manager rumoured to be O'leary. A defender will be signed either Sergei Pavlyukovich from Dynamo minsk or leonardo from Olympiacos.
My cousin's, father's, sister's son works undercover as a football rumours correspondent. He has heard of the following rumour coming from the Emirates.
Alan Kardec de Souza Pereira Junior will sign on–loan from Vasco da Gama until the summer when a decision will be made on wether to make the signing permanent.
Alan Kardec is a 20 year old striker
Ok first things first rafa is not leaving liverpool this is mostly due to his wife who has on several ocasions refused to move to madrid with him. Also the club will be sold fact not quite sure who to though the yanks have only 6 momths to repay the huge loan or sell. However the two owners have fallen out again and are using seperate banks to find buyers for their stake so you could see split owners at dnfidld again
Hi. been told by a member of her majesty;s esteemed press that Roque santa Cruz will not be going to Man City as Rovers have a deal in plce for him to go to Gods own team Manchester United this will happen either in January or the summer depending on whether they sign a replacement i time.
Michael Mancienne is due to re–sign for Wolves on loan until the end of the season, if Phil Scolari is happy that he has adequate cover at the back. Expect this transfer to go ahead in the last few days of the transfer window. Also, Giles Barnes will reject a loan move to Wolves in favour of fighting for his place in the Derby team. And finally, expect one of Arsenal's youngsters to sign on loan at Molineux, with McCarthy keen on bolstering his defence using the loan market.
I have valuable sources at clubs in the SPL and here's what I can reveal exclusively here:
Lee Trundle has been up in Edinburgh having a medical at Hearts. Hibs were also in the hunt but Trundle wants first team football. Deal likely to be a Loan for the remainder of the season.
Nacho Novo will move to Stoke in the January window. The move comes after his frustration at being a bit part player.
Hibs are looking to take influential player maker Gylfi Einarsson on trial. GE is currently playing his football in Norway with SK Brann and would be keen on a return to the UK (following a short spell at Leeds).
Motherwell have made moves to replace exiting striker Chris Porter and will ponder a move for former York striker Clayton Donaldson. Donaldson had a rather poor spell in the SPL with Hibs and he's made it clear he fancies another attempt to make certain people sit up and take notice.
These will happen and when they do. . you'll be begging me for more gossip.
Bristol City are closing in on the loan signing of Rangers midfield playmaker Charlie Adam, for the rest of the season. City will have the option to sign Adam permanently at the end of the season.
no money to spend in january, but youngsters may be brought in or maybe one player. after the window closes arabs will buy out the club, proberly DIC. the summer we will spend as wel as atrting development on the stadium.
renarto agusto – 12m
joquin/valencia/lennon – 17m
silva – 16m
aguero – 28m (part of torres deal)
steve harper – 1.9m sub goalie
glen johnson – 10m buy out clause
maybe if needed
marek hamsik – 13m
Manchester united to sign teenage prodigy jack shilling from west ham, will become the most expensive under 16 of all time!
Ive heard Ryan Giggs will takeover as the next Wales Manager when he retires.
Plymouth Argyle are chasing free agent David Graham to bolster their attack.
Paul Sturrock is also hoping to tie down Carl Fletcher on loan from Crystal Palace until the end of the season.
I have just been told that andrei ashavain has arrived at the emirates to be shown around then he wil go to the training ground for medical then the deal shall be completed for afee of 14 million pounds and ad on's of 3 million pounds arsenal shall also sign micha richards from manchester city for 9 million pounds all this will happen in 4 days time.
Heard on the grapevine that Mark Hughes wants to use Micah Richards in a straight swap for West Ham's Matthew Upson.
To the guy who said Arsharvin had a good EURO's, you must have been watching a different competition than me. . He had a superb UEFA cup, but if you ask me, he's similar to Ronaldo, in that he goes awfully quiet in the high pressure games, the last thing Arsenal need is a player who can't perform when we need him most, but in Wenger we trust.
Adebayor will be going nowhere, since he is so short of form it's untrue. Even if he gets on the score sheet, you watch his performance and tell me he's a top 4 player. .?
No DM to come in, at least not until summer, as Bischoff will be given the chance at the tail end of the season, could well see him against Cardiff also. Wenger was publically sceptical when he signed, but will give him an opportunity. I like him, so lets hope he steps up.
Finally, Rosicky failing a drugs test? Do me a favour, have you ever heard Wenger talk? He would never stand for that, Tomas would be out the door quicker than a commentator could decide how to pronounce his name.
No rumours really, just straightening a few things out.
Can't wait for the return of Eduardo.
There has been some speculation regarding an imminent takeover of Liverpool FC, and the subsequent billions that will then be given to Rafa Benitez to buy himself a team capable of challenging big clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal. Well I can tell all Liverpool fans that these rumours are wide of the mark. My source is a well–placed Liverpool journalist. The the only talks Liverpool have had are with a Nigerian consortium and these talks were, frankly, a waste of time (yes, the same jokers that were going to buy Newcastle). Sorry to be the bearer of bad news to long–suffering Liverpool fans, but you're stuck with Laurel and Hardy for some time yet.
The Arshavin to Arsenal deal is dead, according to my source. Nobody will arrive at the Emirates this window, but 2 new players will come in during the summer transfer window. Krancjar will come in from Portsmouth for 11 million and Richards of Man City will arrive for a cut price of 7 million.
Deals that will happen this month for arsenal and man city
arshavin to arsenal 15m
puyol man city 28m
van der vaart man city 25m
fabien delph man city 8m
upson 5m plus betdner arsenal
