  Rumour has it that Newcastle Owner Mike Ashley is only selling 50% of his shares. He feels that he shouldnt walk away from the club all together as he has put a lot of money into the club and wants something out of it. An arab based company has offered to purchase around 25% of shares in the club by the end of this next month.

Enjoy Newcastle fans you not rid of the Cockney Mafia yet hahaha
  Kinnear's transfer targets

denision loan arsenal
  Just heard from a close friend at Celtic Park that Nedum Onuoha is close to signing in January. Staying in the SPL, Rangers are in for Clint Dempsey of Fulham for 3m as he is out of favour with Roy Hodgson. Also Inter are close to agreeing a deal with Flumeneise for Thiago Silva. One more, Norwich city are looking to sign Mohammed Shawky of Boro in January

Respects
Rob
  Liverpool will sign Javi Martinez from Atletico Bilboa for 8m he will fund the money by selling Lucas to Villareal for 5m
  To the person that provided us with the list of names coming and going to celtic park, I am assuming you are simply picking names and values at random as you are well off the mark!
William Gallas will not be coming to Celtic, 4mill is ridiculous, we couldnt afford his wages (around the 90k mark) and he has options in england and france; iniesta will not be arriving. he is a spanish regular, a vluable member of the current barca set up and is worth more than 7.7mill that you state (sylvinho is currently discusing a 1.3mill move. Also you mentioned 3 strikers. .we already have 7strikers.
As for people moving on, Lee Naylor is not worth 2mill, aiden i know for a fact, will not be moving till summer at the earliest when he will have clarification on his place in the team, but expect tottenham and aston villa to be the teams looking to get him. naka may move back to japan, but for a fee of closer to 1.5mill, 7mill is just stupid. and finally, gary caldwell has stated his desire to remain at parkhead for the rest of his career and he is one of WGS favourites, he will not be moving.
A load of nonsense mate

Semir Stilic is being looked at for around 2.5mill and zaluska could be brought in for around 1mil though. don't be suprised to see a loan deal for craig bellamy in jan. TI
  I'm the guy who said I spoke to a director at Celtic and Boruc was getting sold – i can confirm this is 100% true – don't get all paranoid about how 'celtic–minded' i am. Strachan had no excuse for Boruc's terrible challenge or continual problems and the Pole WILL leave Celtic this winter to be replaced by Zaluska. Some of the other rumours about Celtic are a bit mental though – How on earth would Celtic afford Iniesta and Sylvinho for £9 mill? How is Bobo worth £2.3mill when his contract ends soon? Why would Man Utd want McGeady (especially for £12million???) when they already have Ronaldo and Nani and Giggs etc etc? Donati is not worth £4.4 million as he never plays and Hibs could never afford Cillian Sheridan's wages to swap him for Fletcher. Apart from that all the other rumours about Celtic are entirely correct!
  "To the person who claims Chelsea can't afford a new stadium without taking out a sizeable loan. I think it fair to say that almost any team can get a new stadium if they get a multi million/billion pound company to pay a substantial amount towards it in return for naming the ground after them.It is true though, that Arsenal fans should be proud of their stadium, it is nice, if a little quiet. Oh yeah, and Chelsea's ground, being in West London, is one of THE most valuable pieces of land in the country, so somehow I think they would be able to afford a new stadium with the money the sale of that would bring in (think how many up–market apartments and pretentious coffee bars they could fit in), but then they probably don't want to move if it means selling out like Arsenal did."

sorry i think you might have miss understood me. i didn't mean chelsea were going to be building e new stadium i just wanted to say that arsenal are in debt because of their stadium move.

thanks
  West Ham are currently scouting in Belgium and the Netherlands for a right back as they are looking to replace Lucas Neill who they will most likely part with in Jan, Neills contract runs up in the summer and they are looking to cash in on him because he will not be offered a new contract.

Ajax's Gregory Van Der Wiel and Standard Liege's Marcos Camozzato are both very likely candidates.
  2 big stories come out today:
–Fabregas has been made new Arsenal skipper
–Lukas Podolski has put in a transfer request to Bayern Munich
Regarding the Podolski situation, Man City and Tottenham will be most interested in the striker but Chelsea could also show interest as they are looking for a new striker. He will be worth around 20 mil. As for Arsenal, this appointment could re–enforce Fabregas' commitment to the club and make him realise his importance to the club, which could make him improve as a player. However Wenger has said that just because Fabregas is captain it does not mean he is the only leader in the squad. Wenger sees the captain as the one that speaks outside of the club (to the media). Players like Gallas, Almunia, Toure and Clichy will all have a big part in leadership in the dressing room and on the pitch. Regarding Gallas, he is not going to be forced out of the club and Wenger sees a future still for him at the club, however he has been offered an escape route if needed in a 6 month loan deal to French side PSG. Gallas will play tomorrow against Dynamo Kiev and will maintain his place in the squad for now. As for all the doubters in Arsene Wenger, how about a little respect and some time to realise what he's done for our club. He is going nowhere and will see the remainder of his managing career out in Arsenals welcome arms. In Arsene we trust.

Thanks,
The Arsenal Know It All
  West Ham have signed the Italian Davide Lanzafame, Gianluca Nani is in Italy wrapping the deal up. Davide will officially sign January 1st. It is expected that the club will announce it before that time though. Zola made him his nr 1 target when he got the job as West Ham manager.
  Wolves fans, i am only giving the public what they want. I do apologise though, your parachute payments did indeed end two years ago, i chose a bad example there, didnt Kightly sign from Southend though? I think West Brom, on the other hand, are terrible when it comes to parachute payments, and i stand by that.

Now onto some news:
Arsenal: New players? There are many more rumours in involving all these signings for the gunners. Since when do they make signings? Joking, joking. But seriously, are Arsenal really going to buy English players? Laugh out loud. . Joe Ledley is likely to be a target following Aaron Ramsey from Cardiff (who would want to stay with Peter Ridsdale anyway?) and maybe a move for Crystal Palace's Victor Moses, although he'll cost Wenger 3mil+. Leeds' Tom Elliot is not good enough. Leeds' Fabian Delph is too good. As for William Gallas, he will reject a stay at The Emirates, as one will be offered, and will move to Marseille.
Tottenham: Harry's targets? I swear Mr. Redknapp's transfer list seems to change daily. Now targets seem to include a new keeper, Rob Green? Perhaps Bolton playmaker Matthew Taylor. I still think Lassana Diarra will make the switch to Whiteheart Lane too.
QPR: Paulo Sousa? Not such a great start for our Portuguese friend, thrashed by a Watford side without a manager. Perhaps a little unlucky, that time, but expect Sousa to make wholesale changes in January. Lee Cook to make his Rangers return from Fulham, with Emmanual Ledesma also signing a permanant deal. To counter–balance, expect Angelo Balanta's loan at Wycombe to be extended, and Akos Buzsaky to go out, either permanantly or on loan. Wee Paulo has a lot to be going on with.
Leeds Utd: Departures? As I've already said, no. Fabulous Fabian Delph is in the first year of a four year deal, Jermaine Beckford has already signed an extension and Luciano Becchio and Aidan White have only began new deals at the start of the season. If Arsenal, Middlesbrough, Man City and all the other bullies want some, they will have to pay through the roof to pease Master Bates.
Malcolm Shaffer here.
  Arsenal are desperate to bring in a striker. They will sell Bendtner.The targets are as follows, altohugh only 1 will be signed Mario Mandukić of NK Dinamo, Diogo of Olympiakos, Edu of Hoffenheim, Dabid Williams of Brondby, Michael Owen of Newcastle, Gary Madine of Carlisle and Victor Moses of Crystal Palace
  Malcolm Shaffer – your comments about Wolves are rubbish. Where do parachute payments come into the equation when they finished at least 2 years ago? FYI, Michael Kightly cost 25k from Grays Athletic (yeah, we REALLY needed the para payments for him!), plus Big Chris cost around 400k and Sam Vokes cost around 250k. Anyway as far as rumours are concerned, seems we're trying to get Scott Sinclair on loan – would be a good signing.

ITK
  Tony Adams was seen at England U21 match. He was impressed by English centre back Richard Stearman and Czech keeper Jacob Divis. Aidan White of Leeds Utd is also a target alongside Toulouse youth Adam Smith.
  Arsenal are in for Fabian Delph, as we already know. However, they are also interested in Sunderland youngster Jordan Henderson. The final suprise target is Reuben Noble–Lazarus of Barnsley.
  Rangers are targeting 3 English Youngsters. The players in question are Kyle Naughton of Sheff Utd, for around £5m Mark Beevers of Sheff Wed for around the same fee, and finally Barnsley youngster Reuben Noble–Lazarus for around £1m
  England U21/Peterbrough keeper Joe Lewis is a shock target for Middlesbrough. Southgate sees him as a potential England no1 and a good replacement for Ross Turnbull. They are also competing with villa for Adam Lallana and with Arsenal for Leeds youngster Tom Elliot
  There are ment to be a lot of big stars heading to old trafford, ive heard sergio aguero is comin,benzema,rossi might be comin back to old trafford and golden oldies beckham and henry well after beckham has finished his loan at milan
  Hamilton Acadamicals defender David Elebert is wanted by Sheffield United, Doncaster and Hibernian. The goalkeeper Darren Quigley of Derry City looks likely to move to Falkirk or Wolves if Hennesey goes. Swansea are after Irish midfielder James Chambers from Shelbourne.
  To the person that said


I just got back from the Celtic–St Mirren match, where i was watching the game alongside senior Celtic directors. One of them had talked to Strachan about Arthur Boruc and his constant disiplinary problems after the match. The challenge he made against St Mirren's Craig Dargo was the final straw for Strachan and many board members, who feel he should of been sent off and Boruc will be shipped out in January due to constant problems. At the front of the queue will be Spurs and eventually Man City after their attempt to lure Buffon with silly–money fails.
£5–8 Million should seal the signature of the cigar–smoking, eratic, trouble–maker.

I agree with strachan in his interveiw on friday he didnt do anything wrong just because he went out in poland and got drunk and smoked cigars big deal he didnt break any rules what about skippy he smokes do you want rid of him in january and brown for all the bad tackles he made last season?

I bet your one of these people that in the next 2 champions league games boruc will play great and that will be him a legend again so leave the big man alone and post real rumours.
  All these people saying Wenger will be sacked are all wrong. Wenger will buy 1 or 2 experienced players in January, and will hopefully get Eduardo back in the next 2 weeks. Dennis Bergkamp and Martin Keown will be brought into the backroom staff to learn from Wenger, and at the end of the season, wenger will leave to go to PSG, and Tony Adams will be brought in as manager with Dennis Bergkamp and Martin Keown as his assistants.
  I know for a fact that arsene wenger will not leave and that funds wwill be made available. the gunners will bid on davvis silva (valencia) Yaya Toure (barca)and suprsingly scott sinclair (chelsea) and Heinz Muller (barnsley).
  WHUFC

West Ham are in talks with: Alexis Snchez – Udinese, Andreas Ivanschitz – Panathinaikos, Jaime Gavilan – Getafe, Nedum Onohua – Man City, Benjani Mwaruwari – Man City and Stephen Appiah who is currently training with Brescia Gianluca Nanis previous club.

Zola wants either Ivanschitz or Gavilan on the left hand side, Ivanschitz is versatile and can cover both flanks and centre mid.

Those who will be sold in January are Matty Etherington, Danny Gabbidon, Jimmy Walker, Kyel Reid, Tony Stokes and Nigel Quashie.

No key players will be sold and there are funds available for Zola.

Zola will be given time alongside Clarke and Nani.
  Madjid bougherra to leave rangers in january going to marseille for around £4million. replacements – 1st choice Tonel at sporting around £3million, 2nd choice darren barr at falkirk, rangers fan for £1.8million.
  January transfers will be mainly contested between the mid to bottom league teams, these would be minor transfers, a couple of big names could be in the hat, including alonso of liverpool, galas arsenal, tevez perm deal, henry barca, xavi barca. With the current state of economy all the big silly transfer fee's being banged about these will be cut by 25% at least.(unless the buyer is either chelsea or man city) mark my words, Biggest spenders will be Man city with hopes of buying a big name centre back (wont be JT) canavaro a possible target, spurs will add to squad with diarra looking a close target, bolton/hull/stoke/everton/boro/fulham/blackburn will also add to their squads. west ham to be the big sellers but not many 1st squad to go. blackburn will part with paul ince, with colin hendry and tim flowers in the frame. newcastle and west ham will be sold at the end of the financial year. big summer targets. . DROGBA TO REAL, AGUERO TO MAN CITY (WORLD TRANSFER RECORD). HUNTELLAR TO CHELSEA, DIEGO TO MAN UTD, the Mole.
  Arriving at Glasgow Celtic will be :

Semir Stilic (Lech Poznan) £2m
William Gallas (Arsenal) £4m (cut price)
Lukasz Zaluska (Dundee United) £1m
Steven Fletcher (Hibernian) £2m+ Cillian Sheridan

Gary Caldwell (Burnley) £3m
Massimo Donati (Lazio) £4.4m
  New to the site, Not new to almost fact rumours. Other than the obvious rumours, I only post rumours that are more likely than others:

Alonso will sign for a spanish club.

Agger will take his role. Barry will not be signing for The Reds.

Liverpool will Bring in a LB and a RB and off load their curent ones for a straight swap.

Gallas will sign for West Ham. For a Bargain but will be earning over 100k a week.

West Ham will put in a 10m bid for D Cisse.

Wenger will bring in 3 over 26 year old players. 1 CB, 1 RM, 1 CM.
I do not have info on the players. (More than Likely from french league)

Man city are expected to go on a shopping spree outspending that of chelseas. The owners have a list of (in hughes'opinion) the best players in the world in every position on a 4–4–2 formation.

The owners have told Hughes he is free to buy whoever he wants but the team must play attacking,exciting football.Bids for strikers and attacking midfielders will be number 1 priority.

Expect to see bids for, John Terry, Buffon, Kaka, Messi, Owen, Robben, Van der vaart, C Ronaldo, G Heinz, Ronaldhino, Seedorf, Viera, Teves, D Kuyt. Yes, Kuyt of liverpool. You cant make this up. G Batistuta (Forwards) L Figo ( Midfielders) Maldini (Defenders) Are expected to be offered huge wage deals to Coach. Great time to be a Man C fan.

Hughes will have 1 season to impress after strengthening the squad, if he fails Frank Riikaard is number 1 pick for new manager.Not mourhino. Thats the only list and info i have.

Mr JS.
  Tony Adams is a huge admirer of Pennant and will allow Johnson to join Liverpool and also raise cash for a replacement right back. I hear he wants Geremi from Newcastle.
  Inside knowledge. Mowbray will be fired in December and replaced by Big Sam. He will off load Greening and five other names some in the starting eleven. Money will come with the appointment to get him in and he will fire WBA to safety by mid March or he will resign.
  Gabi heinze and bastian schweinsteiger 2 sign for liverpool in jan also sergio ramos will sign in the summer with alonso goin the other way 100% true.
  Just heard from Matty Taylor parents that he wants a move back south. Harry has earmarked him as Left sided cover, Matty is a big Spurs fan, and is beleived to be chumping at the bit to team up with Harry again.Though the rumor with his parents is Harry wil left Essou return to France and Bale will go Liverpool.
Also another Spurs fan is wanted by harry Scotty parker!!
