Yakubu and Kenwynne Jones in straight swap in January – definite.
Gordon Strachan is thought to be tiring of the recent lacklustre performances of none other than star player Shunseke Nakamura. It is thought that an offer of £8–10 million could tempt the wee man into selling. The news has alerted Roy Keane and David Moyes. Also expect to see the departures of Gravesen – £1 million, Riordan – £1 million, Balde – free and Zurawski – 750 k. Keep the faith. HAIL HAIL.
Why would Bolton buy Silvestre, he's out for the rest of the season Also Brian Laws too be sacked.
Ive heard a rumour at Goodison that Moyes is plotting a £4.5 million swoop for John O'Shea and a player + cash deal for Matt Taylor or giles Barnes
(blue boy pete)
Expect Newcastle to sign Edmilson as well as Appiah as Sam is looking for a replacement for Butt as he is getting old.
Lfc Rumours– Berbatov to sign in January for a fee of £14 million + Peter Crouch (9 million) total £23 million also Benitez will enquire about the availibilty of Joe Cole and Philip Lahm from Chelsea and Bayern Munich respectively.
Boss Aidy Boothroyd to break the bank and sign Adam Johnson from Middlesbrough for £5.5 million.
Boothroyd sees Johnson as a key player especially as the season comes to a close.
Hull are launching a bid to sign patty kluivert, in January when campbell loan ends they will go in for him. Also expect a move for David edgar of Newcastle on loan. Brown rates him higly and has several scout reports on him.

Micah Richards–Man. City (Swap Crouch–Sissoko)
Ezequel Garay– £10 Racing Santander
Marcell Jansen– £10 Bayern Munich
Ricardo Quaresma £22 Porto
Reading FC: I have it on very good authority that the Reading Chairman John Madejski is weighing up a takeover offer from American Philip Anschutz. There are at least two other rival parties interested (I do not know who they are yet) but Anschutz's is the only formal offer.
Burnley will strengthen in the Summer if Brendan Flood see's us as serious contenders for promotion, if he does then expect a few of the following transfers to go through.
Jermaine Easter 125k
Matty Pattison 200 k
Frazer Richardson 150 k
Jermaine Beckford 750 k
Nicolas Bendtner Loan
Also expect to see the departures of:

Arsene Wenger wll not bring in Benzema and Ben Arfa in January as they will be ineligible to play if Arsenal qualify for the KO of the Champions League
Arsenal will be buying
Modric £12. 5 (Dinamo Zagreb)
Hangeland £5 (Kobenhavn FC)
Out –Alex Song–
Summer– Ins Ben Arfa £14 Benzema £18
Guillermo Ochoa £6
Arsenal will sign Hatem Ben Arfa and Karim Benzema from Lyon for a combined fee of £25 million.
they will also sign a keeper as Lehmann will deffinetly be sold after what he said in his interview and replacing him will be Robert green. they are the only signings they will make. and to all the people saying Gilberto will leave Arsenal he will not because when we plays games against Man United and Liverpool we need some experience on the bench. leaving will be Senderos probs villa, J. Hoyte Everton and Lehmann to a German team not Manchester City as I do not think Sven would want a moany old keeper do you.
NO bullsh#t here.
Lookout for the following player arriving at the PEOPLES Stadium (IBROX) in JANUARY.
James McFadden, swap deal with K. Boyd going to Everton.
We Are The People
Miguel Veloso looks certain to join the club in January, although a Summer move is possible, the club might set up a pre–contract agreement with the Portuguese international
Come the Summer, the club may sell or lose
Louis Saha – £6 million – £10 million
Mikael Silvestre – £3 million – £5 million
Edwin Van Der Sar – Free (although he might sign his new deal)
Phil Bardsley – £1 million – £2 million
And the club may attempt to buy
Miguel Veloso – £10 million – £20 million
Dimitar Berbatov – £10 million – £20 million
Stevan Jovetic – £7 million
Angel Di Maria – £3 million – £5 million
Aswell as that a few youngsters should arrive either in January or the Summer, Joshua King, Ransford Osei for example
Crystal Palace to sign Danny Webber for 5ook and John Grant for 20 k
Clinton Morrison to Reading for £1.5 million once he scores his 100th goal
Arsene Wenger will only sign 1 mabye two players in January as he does not want to disrupt the squad, he will however sign a few players in the Summer;
Nasri oR Modric and Owen oR Benzima he will only sign Owen if Walcott does not do well between now and then.
Bentder will go out on loan to Birmingham so Wenger can see if he can cut it weekin week out in the Premier League if he does not the well he will be sold in the Summer.
In the Summer Lehmann, Senderos, Eboue and Gilberto will be leaving and will be replaced by Given, Kompany, Shaun wright–phillips Gilberto's replacement is Lasanna Diarra.
It's All happening in Italy, ARSENAL will bid for AC Milans Yohan Gourcuff (£12 Mill). Also Everton will bid for Roma Star Daniele De Rossi (£16 million)
Arsene knows Stories have been leaked in Croatia that Arsenal have completed the signing of Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb)? He will sign in January for a fee of around £8.5 million.
Which now means that Arsenal will not be Buying Hatem Ben Arfa (lyon).
AW is still very interested in Samir Nasri (Marseille) and Karim Benzema (lyon) though which is probabley bad news for Nicklas Bendtner and Jay Simpson. Arsene Wenger will not be signing a g/keeper or a c/back as he does not think he needs too.
Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb)
Samir Nasri (Marseille)
MAN UNITED – Berbatov is coming to Man United in January or Summer as he wants a move 2 Man United after showing his intentions against Newcastle (do you rerember Saha doing it 2 get a move from Fulham)
Huntelaar is on the raddar if we dnt get Berbatov and jovetic is coming aswel in Summer and veloso in jan. And if Scholes tires out or gets injured a lot them they will make a surprize move 4 Ronaldinho as he is not fitting in at FC Barcelona MAN UNITED100 percent
