Steve Sidwell is close to completing a move to Aston Villa. the Chelsea star will replace stylian petrov who could be set for a return to Celtic park.

= v1=

  Arsene Wenger is adamant on losing alexander Hleb and thomas Rosicky and is keen to bring in Aston Villa ace, Ashley young. Martin o'Neil wants £18 million for the former Watford winger and is reluctant to sell.

= v1=

  David Moyes will bring in dan gosling to the first team squad next season as well as Jack rodwell on a permanent basis. rodwell will compete with leScott and yobo for a place in the centre of defense while gosling will play in holding midfield alongside Cahill, and will be preferred to Osman with Carsley having already left. Phil Neville will continue at right back with Leighton Baines to cement his place at left back. Phil Jagielka could play on the left of midfield with pienaar unlikely to return although Moyes wants arshavin. Moyes will finally sell Andy Johnson and look for a strike partner to Yakubu with Dean Ashton his first choice.

  Summer transfer rumours:

Arsenal ins: Samir Nasri–20 million (all but done deal), Micah Richards–15 mil/Vincent Kompany–10 million (no Lucio or Mexes), Diego/Rafael van der Vaart–20 million + Carlos Vela has been granted a work permit, and will play for the Arsenal first team next season.

outs: Flamini–AC Milan (Free transfer, already done deal), Lehmann–Retirement/Borussia Dortmund (Free transfer) and Alexsander Hleb–Inter (15 mil). No more players will be leaving the Emirates this Summer, not Senderos, not Gilberto and not Adebayor as many are suggesting.

Man UNITED ins: Sevilla duo Luis Fabiano and Dani Alves will definitely be brought in for a total of 50 million (25 million each), along with Ricardo Quaresma–20–25 million to replace the departing Cristiano Ronaldo. These will be the only signings for UNITED this Summer.

outs: Ben Foster–Stoke/West Bromwich (2–3 mil), Wes Brown–Newcastle (5 mil), Cristiano Ronaldo–Real Madrid (100 mil) and Louis Saha–Lyon (7–8 mil)

Chelsea ins: Bosingwa–16 million (already done deal), a forward, possibly David Villa or Samuel Eto–30 million, as they will need a big name forward to replace the departing Drogba + Frank Rijkaard as new manage.

outs: Belletti–Sevilla (5 mil), Wayne Bridge–Newcastle (7 mil), Drogba–Inter/AC Milan (whichever Jose Mourinho takes over as manager at, 25 mil), Shevchenko–AC Milan (10 mil), Anelka and Pizarro will stay.

Liverpool ins: David Silva–20 million, David Bentley–15 million, Charles N'Zogbia–5 million, Philip Lahm–10 million, no new forward will be signed as Torres works better as a lone forward with Gerrard in support.

outs: Riise–Aston Villa (6–7 mil), Pennant–Sunderland (7 mil), Xabi Alonso–Real Madrid/FC Barcelona (10 mil), Peter Crouch–Portsmouth/Sunderland (12 mil)

Thats all for now

ArsenalNo. 1

  Gareth Barry is going to sign for Liverpool within the next two weeks with goalkeeper, Scott Carson being used as a make weight to help lower the fee that Aston Villa are looking for. Carson, valued at no less than £10 million by Rafael Benitez is going to cut down to around £6 million so Liverpool could swoop for Barry at a price of £9 mill/£10 million.

Also on the horizon, after an embarrassing relagation for Spanish big spenders, Real Zaragoza, Liverpool look set to take three players who have already admitted their desire to leave the Aragon based club. Paublo Aimar, a long term Liverpool target and former player with Benitez, Captain and Brother of FC Barcelona's Gabriel Milito, Diego Milito and finally Spanish full back Juanfran. Benitez is hoping he could pull all these off for around £15 million but has restricted himself to no more than £20 million.

Sadly, leaving the club will be versatile Australian playmaker Harry Kewell. After rejecting a new contract with a reduced wage, Kewell has decided to leave Anfield to search for first team football. The 29–year old looks set to stay in the Premierleague with FA Cup winners, Portsmouth offering him the perfect wage and European football. Harry Kewell was tempted to join Portsmouth in January 2008 and admitted it was a good offer to play for Portsmouth under Harry Redknapp's revolution but later decided to try and win a new contract at Liverpool.

Depsite so much newspaper speculation, Fernando Torres and Steve Finnan will be at Liverpool next season. Torres is one of the most prized assets in the Premierleague and will not be sold while Steve Finnan has been the most consistent player in the league for the last two seasons, so do not expect them to be sold anytime soon.

  Stoke to sign Berger fulop and Harewood by Thursday, also Stoke are currently are in negotiations with Watford over Danny Shittu price to be around £3.5 million mark, however Shittu has stated he would like to stay at Watford, kenny Miller rumour is utter rubbish, Stoke are also interested in cameron jerome from Birmingham and moses from Palace however no official approach has been made this should be sorted out this week

you heard it hear first, through a very reliable source

  Sheff Wednesday will sign sylvan ebanks–blake for £4 million when sri lankan businessman takeover this week once Gary johnsons contract has been bought out from Bristol City to spearhead them into the Premier League

  Plymouth are keeping tabs on Stockport targetman Liam Dickinson though any deal will depend on the play off final.

Paul Sturrock is also targeting a swoop for Bulgarian playmaker Valentin Tugbootov though permit problems might scupper the deal.

  Derby County news:

Following the capture of Kris Commons, Rob Earnshaw will leave Pride Park in a swap deal for Rob Hulse of Sheff United. Jewell will complete a triple swoop from Watford, signing out–of–contract Jordan Stewart on a free transfer, Nathan Ellington for £3 million and unhappy centre–half Jay DeMerit for £2.5 million. Blackburn have accepted an offer of £4 million for forward Jason Roberts, but the player is still to decide whether he wants to drop a division. Swansea City have also accepted an offer of £1.85 million for highly–rated midfielder Ferrie Bode, and he will sign for Derby shortly. Kenny Miller will leave for Rangers for between £3–4 million.

  First of all the constant rambling on about Ronaldo signing a new deal is all fake and all that about he wants to stay is trash he has in fact agreed a 90 million deal with Madrid

Main transfers in

LFC– Silva, degan, Dossena, Aimar, Nasri, Bentley

Chelsea– Berbatov, boswinga, Klose, Messi, if JM takes over

Arsenal– Moreno, Veloso, Diego Milito

man u– Kerlon, Lisandro lopez

Some of the main Outs will be

Scholes and Giggs – Sunderland

Drogba – AC or Inter

Hleb – Inter

Adebayor – AC or Barcelona

y n w a

  Wolves forward Sylvan Ebanks Blake and winger Michael Kightly will sign for Everton in a combined £9.5 million deal. Moyes is still interested in Wayne Hennessey and may make a move for £3 million.

  Newcastle United rumours

bafetimbi gomis could be priced out of a move to Newcastle as St. Etienne are looking for £18 million for the star forward. amara diane of Paris St. Germain is also a target as he could play on either wing or through the middle and at cost of only £6 million this could be a more likely transfer as the player has publicly stated he would love to play under keegan. in the next few days a £6 million bid will be put forward to Glasgow Rangers for their Spanish centre half Carlos Cuellar. Rangers will be reluctant to sell tho. on the wings a deal for shaun Wright–Phillips is now up in the air after avram grants sacking although keegan is very confident of working again with his former player. arda turan will almost certainly be seen on the toons left wing next year. galatasaray are wanting to hold out until after the finals to push his price up but the Newcastle are moving quickly with a bid which debt ridden gala will struggle to turn down. giles Barnes is also one of two or three young players coming in

  Hull City.

Campo nearly complete. Sunday papers spot on the rumour.

Christian Vieri. No go on the deal.

Frazier Campbell – Dependant on Old Trafford overlords– If not permanent another loan (full season)

Brief titbits. Bonaventure Kalou 80 percent chance of arrival.

Leon Cort Heavy possibility of return as an ex fan favorite.

Patrick Berger 50 percent

Shola Ameobi 40 percent chance.

Harry Kewell 80 percent chance.

Kerria Gilbert 60 percent chance.

Big names (more likely January) Sebastian Larrson, Callum Davidson, El Diouf, Danny Webber, Charisteas.

  Tottenham ins

Carlos Kemlini– £5.5 million

jarque– 8 mill

Luka Modric– 16.5 mill

Shaun Wright–Phillips– 9.5 mill

Younes Kaboul– Portsmouth– 6.7 mill

Kevin Prince Boetang– Hamburg (loan)

Temmu Tanio– Rangers– 5 mill

  As everyone knows, Drogba will be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season. Apparently Chelsea already have a player lined up readu to replace him and are willing to spend in excess of £40 million. His name. Fernando Torres (info from a very well respected pundit/journalist/radio host)

  I work at Murray Park as a groundsman and recently spoke with Ian Durrant. He informed me off the following for Rangers –

in –

Steve Davis (permanent)

Steven Fletcher

Peter Lovenkrads

Jefferson Farfan

Lee Wallace

Paulo Ferriera

Steve Sidwell

out –

Daniel Cousin

Thomas Buffel

Brahim Hemdani

Christian Dailly

Alan Gow

Andy Webster

Also Kenny Miller (Derby) and Mark Reynolds (Motherwell) have both been at Murray Park in previous weeks and look likely to sign.

  Arsenal rumours

They will sign Frey for a smaller fee than quoted probably about £7 million. Wenger has been after him for a long time now even when he was with Parma he tried to sign him.

They will also sign Vincent Kompany for about 5–6 million. defense sorted.

midfield will see either makoun or Veloso coming in, he's in talk with both at the moment.

Both Nasri and Ben–Arfa will be signed. along with Dimitriov who I think will be the best of the lot.

Midfield sorted.

Forwards: Gomez will come in only if Adebayor goes and he may try for Martins too as he has wanted him for a long time too.

quad next year. (watch for dimitriov being signed by all other teams on this site now that I have mentioned him signing for the Gunners.)

  Curbishley wants to sell Ferdinand but to date there have been no takers.

  Chester in's:

Paul Taylor (Vauxhalls) £35k

Richard Hope (Wrexham) – Free

Nathon Stanton (Rochdale) – £45k + 10 k add ons

Chester out's

Kevin Ellison (Wrexham) – 55k

  For all them people claiming to know from a certain source that Christiano Ronaldo is leaving Man United this Summer are all talking rubbish and just going on the hype that Real Madrid have been making about the possible siging off the player. Real Madrid think they have a divine right to get any player they want, they are always at it, trying to unsettle players. Christiano has said enough times recently that he is happy at Man United. Let me make it clear again for you persons out there, Christiano Ronaldo will not be leaving Man United this Summer. Next Summer it may be an issue or possibly the Summer after that but not this Summer.

This is just my opinions of whom I think Fergy might let go this Summer:

Gerard Pique £5/6 million

(Wants to play more games, will not get this chance at United yet, FC Barcelona he will)

Louis Saha £5/8 million

(Constant Injuries, lost patience with him and his attitude)

Johnny Evans £2/3 Mill

(Had a good loan spell at Sunderland, Roy Keane wants to keep him and he knows his chances are limited at United)

Silvestre £1/2 mill

(Silvestre now injury free wants more first team action, with Evra excelled at left back, chances are limited. Will join up with Lauren Blanc at Bordeaux)

Phil Bardsley £1/2 Mill/LOANED OUT

(I do not think Fergy needs Bardsley and if the right offer comes in he will sell him)

Chris Eagles £1/2 Mill/LOANED OUT

(Doesn't need the winger, will cash in if the right offer comes in)

Danny Simpson £1/2 Mill/LOANED OUT

(Will more than likely be loaned out again next season, if the right offer comes in fergy will cash in)

Ben Foster LOANED OUT

(Fergy will not sell Foster, if it was not for the serious injury last year Foster would be no 1. Fergy wants to see how he does/recovered on loan next season)

– – –

Darren Fletcher is staying, Fergy knows he is to much of an important squad player to release.

John O'Shea usefull squad player, will not sell this Summer.

Alex Ferguson

He will not be leaving anytime soon, Fergy has already stated he will not be manager of Man United three years from now. But he will be here the next couple of seasons 2 maybe 3 it all depends on when he feels it's time for him to retire.

Players Fergy is after:

Miguel Veloso £10/15 Mill

(Carloz Queiroz has been to watch Veloso against Rangers in the QF of the EUFA cup. Fergy is a keen admirer or the def midfielder and will try and sign him this Summer)

wants:

Dimitar Berbatov £18/£22 Mill

(Fergy rates Berbatov highly and tried to sign him last Summer but Tottenham were not having it. Fergy will try again this Summer but is only willing to go up to twice as much as Tottenham originally paid for him (£11 million). Louis Saha could also be offerd to make this deal happen)

or

Karim Benzema £15/25 Mill

(Fergy Would be willing to use most of his transfer funds to get Benzema as he rates him so highly, but knows Benzema is the most unlikely transfer of all three forwards I have mentioned at this stage, I do not think Man United appeals to Benzema)

and if:

Klaas–Jan Huntelaar £10/15 Mill

(The prolific Ajax Striker is highly sort after around Europe and fergy has been watching him for many years. If he cannot land Berbatov, Benzema and priced out of Fabiano, he will turn his attention to this guy)

highly unlikely

Micah Richards £15/25 Mill

(Manchester City would not allow this to happen but this lad is potentially one of the best up 7 coming defenders around, he can play at centre back and right back, equally as good in both positions, strong, Athletic and a great tackler. Ideal to replace Neville and act as cover for Ferdinand or Vidic)

Daniel Alves £17/25 Mill

(Fergy really needs a world class right back as Gary Neville has been out far to long and knows Wes Brown is not a natural right back. Problem is Barcelona, Real and Juve are really interested in him and I think fergy's knows it's unlikely he will leave Spain for England this Summer with FC Barcelona being his likely destination)

Thats my take on what could be happening. I spout out realistic targets, not fantasy stuff like most of you persons

  Man United signings this Summer:

Benzema and Ben Arfa

(20 million with Saha and Silvestre going the other way)

Micah Richards

(24 million will be too much for Thaksin to refuse)

David Bentley

(15 million Sir Alex is a keen admirer, especially now he has matured off the pitch)

Leaving will be:

Saha

Silvestre

Fletcher (5 million to Rangers)

O'Shea (about £5 million to Everton or Tottenham)

  My Uncle is an agent in Scotland and has told me the following deals are likely to happen in the next few weeks:

Kris Boyd to leave Rangers as tired of not playing, Birmingham, Wigan, West Bromwich and suprisingly Newcastle interested.

Kenny Miller to join Rangers.

Damien Duff to Celtic if McGeady goes.

  Possible Rangers Signings

In:

Paul Robinson – Tottenham (back up for McGregor)

Ibrahima Sonko – Reading (solid centre half to

partner Carlos Cuellar)

Daniel De Ridder – Birmingham (right back, to take Kirk Broadfoots place)

Betafami Gomis – (French forward – will arrive and provide perfect partnership with the most prolific goalscorer in britain Kris Boyd)

Alan Smith – Newcastle (This will only happen if Alan McGregor/Carlos Cuellar join the Newcastle United, or if Rangers can afford the £5,000,000 to sign him)

Ivan Klasnic – Werder Bremen (Bosman Signing)

Andy Dorman – St. Mirren (the American midfielder is still young, and Walter feels he can learn alongside barry and Kevin and turn into an extremely goos signing)

Igotz Garde Gmez – Osasuna (Spanish defender has been recomended to Walter by Scottish Premier League player of the year Carlos Cuellar, expect a £3 million pound deal)

Steven Davis – Fulham (Swap with Cousin)

Could maybe see Louis Saha coming to Ibrox from Man United on loan, only if Sir Alex signs anoher forward.

Out:

Cousin

Sebo

Dailly

Weir

Hemdani

  Earnshaw will sign for Forest this Tuesday. He has a medical at 12. 15pm and is expected to pass with no problems.

Transfer should go through by 4pm.

Other transfer news for the reds: Bid for Sheff United's Stephen Quinn of just under £1 million and also for Akos Buzsaky (£1 million) as he is refusing to sign a new contract at Queens Park Rangers and his current one runs out at the end of the forthcoming season.

Expect to see a youngster come in on loan. Calderwood has been talking to Newcastle about the possibility of one or two players and it was thought he wanted Ramage, but he has since gone to Queens Park Rangers. James Troisi (right winger or forward) is a possibility on a season long loan.

Tyson and Clingan will sign their new contract offers, contrary to rumours banding about and no other players will leave.

Calderwood is also targeting three other players, two of them defenders and a goalkeeper. It's quite possible that Nayatanga is one of them.

All this is 100 percent inside info. I work in a non–public area of the Nottingham Forest set–up and my information is completely genuine.

  Hull City may consider loaning out Arsenal's Nacer Barazite as Nacer has said on Arsenal. com that he would not say no to a loan move.

Hull also look to sign Jaidi from Birmingham followed by:

A bid for Damien Duff £2 million

A new forward Kevin Doyle most likely candidate

  The Hammers will sign

Pennent – £5 million – Liverpool

Shorey/Bridge – £4 million – Reading/Chelsea

Finnan – £2 million – Liverpool

Bradley – £4 million – are not gunna even try spelling it lol

total spend £15 mill

leaving will be

etherington – £2 million – WBA

Bowyer – £1.5 million – Stoke

LBM – £3 million – Newcastle

paintsil – £1 million – Aston Villa

cole or Zamora – £3 million Sunderland or Fulham

Davenport – loan (prove fitness) – Watford

Wright – £1 million – Southampton

Reid – £1 million – championship team

salano – released

total income £12.5 mill

net spend £2.5 mill

  First things first, Kris Boyd is most definetly leaving Rangers, My close friend, Stephen Stirling plays for Rangers U19s/Reserves. Now for Rumours. I am currently working for a Mobile Phone Repair Company (TRS) in the Erskine area of Renfrewshire, The director of the logistics area was at the Scottish Cup Final Hospitality on Saturday 24th May 2008, He got chatting to Arthur Numan (Former Rangers Player) and he has breifly told him that Peter Lovenkrands, Currently of Shalke 04 has agreed terms over a move back to Ibrox, the other rumour mentioned was yet again Rino Gattuso, yes. But. He has not yet agreed terms but Martin Bain is in advanced negotiations with Rino's agent.

And The Cry Was.

Nothing to get excited about I am afraid Greens

  I live near Bremen in Germany and play amateur football once a fortnight. Last week a Werder player came down to the facilities to see a friend of his. We ended up talking briefly, and I jokingly asked if there was any weight to the rumours that Aston Villa, my team, were looking at Diego or Per Mertesacker – both of which have been in the press. He told me that as far as he was aware the attention was being directed towards Markus Rosenberg, their Swedish forward. If true this could be very exciting, he is lightning fast and equally good in the air and on the ground. Fingers crossed he was telling the truth.

  There is no way Liverpool will sign Riera from Espanyol. I was in FC Barcelona last weekend and went to the last game of the season at the Olympic Stadium. Espanyol vs UD Almeria. Riera was woeful. His touch is poor, was uninterested and could not tackle to save his life. He was taken off at hlaf–time and I am not surprised, this guy is not a good player and I cannot believe that Rafa would be interested.

Rumours in FC Barcelona are: LFC are interested in Xavi and that Silva and Augero have been linked to LFC. One guy who works at the Nou Camp said that there is no way that Henry will leave, pity.

  Hearts

Temuri Ketsbaia will become the new Hearts manager.

  My older brother plays for Scotland under 20's and knows Steven Fletcher very well from their time on Internetional duty. Steven told my brother he has turned down a move to Rangers and has opted to join Hull City for £4.5 million and Matt Plumer and James Bennet on season long loans.

Also my brother has told me ICT player Ian black will join Hearts for 120 k and I also hear from a mate in England that Chelsea want bentely and a re willin gto give money and SWP

  Celtic Rumours

Stoke have enquired about thomas Graveson, Riordan to Burnley, killen is on Leeds United wanted list, and Lee naylor is to sign for West Bromwich.

Macdonald from Dundee is to be purchased as a longer term prospect. Celtic do not sign based on a target but on a rasnge of possible targwets for various positions, therefor some players are on the list but sometimes an alternative has been secured. Some names that I know on the list are Kezmzn, Maloney, Hunt, (Reading), Ashton, Darren Fletcher, unfortunetly I have only been able to get this info on the level three players, those who's cost may exceed their value.

  I have seen Djibril Ciss and his wife and kid moving their stuff back into their house in Frodsham, Cheshire. I guess he must be moving back to the Premier League next season and to a club where he can commute to from North Cheshire.

  I'm good friends with toomy hudd and he is leaving Tottenham for the Hammers in the next few days, expect an announcement very shortly. he's gutted but cannot get a regular spot at Tottenham.

  Sunderland will sign Ruud Van Nistleroy from Real Madrid for around £7 million pounds, the will also sign Jonny Evans on a permanent deal from Man United for £4 million pounds.

  Heard from a good source that the following are coming to Newcastle 99 percent done deals.

Shaun Wright–Phillips (Bentley on his way to Chelsea as replacement)

J A Risse

Deane Ashton (Mark Viduka going in the opposite direction)

Richard Dunne

Also about 6 young players brought in by Dennis Wise and co.

  Heard that Norwich Citys signings this Summer will be.

Linvoy Primus

Harry Kewell

Wes Hoolahan

Martin Taylor

Maceo Rigters

Ched Evans

fingers crossed.

  Can people stop saying arshavin will sigh for Newcastle, Liverpool, Arsenal or any other club in England.

he has said he would love to come to England and his dream club would be Everton after he played against us earlier in the year in the UeFa Cup.

also Everton will sign:

arshavin

turan

dudu

Hoyte

bradley

other star signing by Moyes (forward)

  Ronaldo will not be leaving Man United this Summer, the whole transfer rumour merely being a method for getting a new £150,000+ per week contract. This will be signed within the 2/3 weeks as Ronaldo has stated in interviews. United will not be signing a target man despite all the speculation, instead Manucho Concalves will return from loan in Greece to give another attacking option, work permit permitting. The only likely signing is to be that of a right back, Wes Brown has proved capable but lacks the pace to cope with top class wingers so it is likely that Lahm will join from B. Munich with the fee around £10–12 million as he can cover either side. Expect to see more of Anderson and less of Scholes next season, while Giggs will be used as an impact sub more often than not. Outs will most likely be Silvestre to France and Pique who appears certain to return to FC Barcelona unfortunately. However if both these players leave watch out for a left footed defender to be purchased to add cover at centre back and LB.

  To the Celtic fan who feels that "Celtic will ram home the financial advantage" on Rangers, Rangers got a UeFa Cup final which brought in just under £25 million– how is that "financial advantage looking now"?

Also Celtic will not be going to Celtic he's on his way to Arsenal. Vukojevic is on his way to Ibrox (prso convinced him). Celtic may sell Nakamura and McGeady though they will sign 2 quality midfielders to play either side of Brown/Gravesen as WGS looks set to play a 4–3–3 with mcDonald, Hessilink and Samaras (who will make his loan deal permenant) up top.

Walters targets are;

Left–back–McCartney/Murphy/Vignal

Center–back–Shittu (Celtic also interested If Celtic sign him Walter will sign the center back Cuellar has recomended he will also sign reynolds and Kenneth as he knows that they are light in that department. )

Center–midfield–Vukojevic and Davis

Central–attacking mid/Right–wing– Kallstrom/Pjanic (loan) or possibly Benyoun.

Striker–McFadden/Lafferty or a player who they have spotted in Spain (will not pretend to know who he is.)

Miller has already signed pending medical.

Weir will get a coaching role.

out will go Dailly, Webster, Adam (loan), Hemdani, Fleck (loan), cousin

  Ive heard that Hull City are in talks with Spanish ace Ivan Campo supposedley his wage could reach to a massive £32,000 a week also in talks with Beckford (Leeds) and Webber (Sheff United)

  Kenny Miller is a mate of mine and I can confirm that he's already signed for Rangers. He will be unveiled in a week or so, but it is all ironed out. He was initially worried about returning as he previously played for Celtic, but Ally McCoist was instumental in persuading him to sign. Kenny believes all of the fans will Follow Follow him, once he starts banging them in for fun up in Scotland once more. He also told me that Danny Shittu is going to sign for Rangers from Watford. Kyle Lafferty is another from Burnley that'll be signing on the dotted line for the Gers. Snoop

Kaka is almost certain to go to Chelsea but not this year. Has promised to stay and help them get back in champs league. However part of didier Drogba deal will be fist option on Kaka next year.

  FALKIRK Rumours.

After signing Lee Bullen (37), Jackie McNamara (34) and Neil McCann (34) for next season to play along side Russell Latapy (40), John Hughes ruled his keen eye over the Celtic '98 v Motherwell '91 legends sides at the weekend and thinks that maybe Tommy Coyne, Dougie Arnott and Darren Jackson would add further vital experience to his team. It is unconfirmed but Hughes is considering asking the fan who won the chance to play in that game if he would join up their preseason friendlies after some rave reviews and nice touches at the weekend.

  Rangers have submitted an enquiry for the availability of Derby defender James McEveley.

Kenny Miller will have to wait until next week before he is unveiled as a Rangers player again.

  – sheff united news–

The Blades will look to 2 midfielders and 2 big Defenders. that is all that is on the shopping list this year. any other business with forwards will be a straight 1 for 1 exchange.

if Robert Earnshaw comes in then expect either Billy Sharp and or Luton Shelton to go out, I cannot see James Beattie or Rob Hulse going anywhere. ( because they are both proven Premier League Strikers.

Defensively we have no really big guys so look out for anyone over 6, 3 or bigger so we can compete with the big forwards that caused us so much trouble last year. Europe could be the best answer.

Midfielder either a loan star coming through or we should spend big and get a couple of young guns who want to shine. Tom Huddlestone would be a star buy as would Wayne Routledge.

both young with plenty to prove.

Brian Howard from Barnsley had a good season, When he has a few more good seasons then we may see people jump in for him. But not now, the 2 guys down at Plymouth look good as does a bid to bring back down Micheal Brown.

Balckwell will spead the money I believe on the continent watch out for the unknown.

  As much as it pains me to write – I have it on good authority that KOLO TOURE is leaving the Emirates this Summer: (

Let's hope Wenger digs deep and brings in some real quality as we need it if we are to keep the rest of this team together.

  I have heard from a very good source that Rangers are close to agreeing a fee with West Bromwich for Jonathan Greening.

  I've been told by a Barnsley supporter that Stoke are looking to sign Brian Howard for cash + Vincent Pericard

  Liverpool Rumours

There is a good chance that Benitez will revert to 4–4–2 in some matches.

He will sign Marcelo Moreno and Michael Owen for £8 million each. Peter Crouch will leave for £12 million and Voronin for £2 million

Andrea Dossena will join for £8 million to strengthen LB and replace John Arne Riise for £5 million.

Philip Degen has already signed to replace £2 million rated Steve Finnan.

A back up Goalkeeper is also on the list to replace Itjande (2 million)

Gareth Barry will join for Carson and £9 million.

Giovani Dos Santos will sign for £8 million to replace Harry Kewell.

  Strong suggestion on Merseyside that D. I. C are now just weeks from a complete takeover at LFC. Gillette has agreed to sell and Hicks now has no option due to finance restrictions. Not all good news as D. I. C would want to review stadium plans, causing futher delays. Big surprise also doing the rounds that Phil Thompson will return in some capacity? Not happy with that but remember both Paco and Alex Miller have left. Expect a lot of comings and goings, personally I do not want to lose Crouch or Alonso but it now looks inevitable. Lets hope Rafa has even better players lined up.

  Heard a rumour about pablo aimar being the subject of a bid by Blackburn rover's for £8 million+, do not know if it is true or not but here is hopeing.

  Rafa Benitez plans to spend £70 million at Liverpool this Summer – £50 million of which will be raised through player sales. do not know how he's going to do it but good luck especially with those yanks in our way, thumbs up for the DIC

Liverpool Ins:

Philip Degen (done) – Borrusia Dortmund

James Milner (cash+ players offer rejected) – Newcastle

Micheal Johnson – Manchester City

David Bentley – Blackburn Rovers

Andrea Dossena (although Fiorentina are now in the Hunt to sign him) – Udinese

Sergio Garcia – Real Zaragoza

Gareth Barry (looking unlikely, but if Alonso leaves Benitez will push very hard to sign him) – Aston Villa

Albert Riera – RCD Espanyol

Diego Milito – Real Zaragoza

Stewart Downing (apparentley a back up plan if Benitez fails to sign barry) – Middlesborough

David Silva – Valencia

Nickey Shorey – Reading

Liverpool Outs:

Xabi Alonso (do not know yet but very close to a move, hopefully he stays. ) – Juve

Peter Crouch – Portsmouth/Aston Villa

Scott Carson – Aston Villa

John Arne Riise (this fellow has been linked everywhere he's like most wanted) – Newcastle/Juve/Shalke 04/Athletico Madrid/Villareal and maybe many more to come Unbelievable

Jermaine Pennant – the Hammers/Blackburn (involved in swap deal for Bentley)/Aston Villa (involved in swap deal for Barry)

Steve Finnan – Fulham

Andriy Voronin – Whereever as long as he leaves, do you not agree all my reds fans out there?

Harry Kewell – New York/Portsmouth

YNWA Liverpool 4 life

  Liverpool Rumours

Peter Crouch is negotiating personal terms with Portsmouth after the clubs negotiated a £12 million fee

Villareal, Deportivo, Juve, Newcastle and Schalke are all keen or John Arne Riise. The price starts and £5 million but is likely to be raised to £6 million due to more interest than was expected.

Steve Finnan is a £2 million target for Fulham, Tottenham and Newcastle.

Charles Itjande will be allowed to leave for any offer more than £1.5 million. Rennes have already made this offer but Liverpool want to wait for more interest to increase the price

Danny Guthrie will complete a £1.5 million move to Bolton with Liverpool having the option to buy back for £3.5 million.

Andrey Voronin is Carrying a £1 million transfer fee and this has put off many clubs however Real Zaragoza are willing to pay it after suffering relegation.

Jermaine Pennant is a £6 million target for Newcastle, Aston Villa and Blackburn but only if Bentley leaves (v. unlikely)

Scott Carson will move to Villa who are willing to pay the £7 million needed to take him. They have already paid Liverpool £2.5 million to take him on loan last season.

Harry Kewell is out of contract and the top clubs interested are Juve, Celtic, Palermo and several American clubs. Anthony Le Tallec will also be released

Regarding signings, Liverpool are not short of money. However they do not have a huge amount. It is their policy to make it look like their is not enough money (this has been done for the last two years. Then Liverpool sign Torres, Babel, Benayoun, Skrtel, Mascherano and Lucas all in one season)

Rafa will sign a forward who is capable of playing buy himself up front. His current choices are between Michael Owen (7 million) Roque Santa Cruz (7 million buy out) and Diego Milito (8 million) He is waiting on Blatter's quota system and if English players are needed he will move for Owen.

He wants 2 attacking midfielders to play in the wide positions of the 4–2–3–1 system – one established player and one who is good enough to play in the first team.

The established player will be between David Silva (20 million) Ashley Young (15 million) and Mancini (4 million)

The other player will be between Giovani Dos Santos (12 million) Aiden McGeady (9 million) and Jeremy Menez (12 million)

Andrea Dossena has agreed personal terms and now the two clubs are negotiating a fee. Liverpool had original had a bid of £8 million accepted but Fiorentina have come in and bid £9 million.

Benitez also wants a back up Goalkeeper as David Martin will go out on loan. His choices are between UlRich Rame, Maik Taylor, Steve Harper, Thomas Sorenson and Santiago Canizares. However it is unknown if any of these want to play back up to Reina.

Lastly Benitez wants one player between Gareth Barry and Marek Hamsik. Again if the qouta system is introduced it will be Barry. However he could cost around £15 million and for a 27 year old Benitez is not sure if it s a good investment. Hamsik would come at a slightly higher price but is only 21.

Also Liverpool will receive money from Pongolles transfer as he had a sell on Clause and is likely to move to Athletico Madrid

  With the revelation that Walter Smith had nothing to do with Rangers Scottish cup run this season it's clear that coisty is very much being groomed as the next Ibrox gaffer when Walter steps down at the end of his contract. this being said he has prefered a 4–4–2 set up with Kris boyd up front. this will have a big say in boyd staying at Ibrox. expect to see Rangers play more attacking football next season as Walter and ally now have the cash and knowledge of what needs brought in to finish the rebuilding process. Outs are looking like buffel, faye, poss davie Weir, cousin, Gow (loan), Lennon (loan), shinnie (loan) and hemdani. inbound it's looking like Walter is looking at Danny Shittu, Davis staying, klasnic, mcevely and another winger no idea who, I do not play football manager so I cannot even come up with a random name from south America. i do however think there will be a rather big signing that will surprise us all.

Big Dave signing out

  With Gordon Strachan furthering his Celtic career expect the board to entrust him with the funds he asks for (realistically, eg not £30 million). Possibly 10 to £15 million. He will then surely address Celtics most pressing needs: A centre back with pace and a left back to start in front of the GOD AWFUL Lee Naylor. Then secondly he will move to strengthen the rest of the squad. Some possibilities include: John Arne Riise – Liverpool (The Celtic board should get rid of the high earners at the club: Gravesen, Balde, Donati, as this will release enough wages to offer Riise a contract), Arthur Boka – Stuttgart (fast left back who is overlooked a lot at Stuttgart due to Ludovic Magnin, would have his chance to shine with the Glasgow giants), Juanfran – Zaragoza (highly experienced left back from the recently relegated Zaragoza), Serdar Tasci – Stuttgart (another possibility from Stuttgart as they did not secure European football for next season, German under 21 international, all round solid centre back), James McFadden – Birmingham (Expect Celtic to try and land McFadden once again now that Birmingham have been relegated), Steven Fletcher – Hibernian (Another hot Scottish prospect from Hibernian therfore as usual both members of the Old Firm will attempt to slug it out for his signature, and for the person who posted that he was a life long Rangers supporter so would be going to Ibrox ehh? Scott Brown? ) Alberto Paloschi – Milan (Has the potential to be a world class player however is not in Milan's immediate plans for next season therefore would probably be available for a season long loan). The most likely players to be leaving the club are: Massimo Donati, Thomas Gravesen, Bobo Balde, Steven Pressley, Derek Riordan, UNFORTUNATELY Artur Boruc, Chris Killen and Jean–Joel Perrier–Doumbe. The most likely youngsters to be loaned out for experience: Paul Caddis, Paul McGowan, Rocco Quinn AGAIN, Scott Cuthbert, Mike McGlinchey and Luca Santonocito. PS rumours of Klaas Jan Huntelaar sadly are unrealistic.

  Newcastle signings:

Van Der Vaart (12 million)

Arshavin (10 million)

Miguel veloso (17 million)

Huntelaar (11 million)

Bridge (6 million)

And To Whoever said Newcastle United Are Not A Big Club We Are Thefourth Best Club In The History Of The Premier League and to whoever sais that we are not big enough to get these players may I remind you of the season we signed Michael owen. Check Your Records Mate

Special K.

  Avram Grant or Frank Rijkaard will be taking over at Manchester City next month with Sven Goran Errikson set to take over as head coach of national side, Mexico. Chelsea are considering Rijkaard as an option also although 60 year old Italian Marcello Lippi who lead Italy to the World Cup as well as Inter's Roberto Mancini who has already expressed his desire to leave and finally Luis Fillipe Scolari. Finally Michael Laudrup, the Danish manager at Getafe is also in contention while Abramovic and Kenyon have also put Martin O'Neil and even Didier Deschamps in the frame.

  At Goodison Park Moyes is playing his cards close to his chest. He has already traveled to France and Russia scouting players, focusing on strong defensive midfielders as a replacement for Carsley. However Moyes is also a keen admirer of Andrei Arshavin and if there is any possibility of a deal being done within the region of £6–8 Million Moyes + Kenwright will do their utmost to sign the hottest prospect in Russian football. Andy Johnson is also on his way out with the Hammers, Newcastle, Sunderland and Pompey interested. Aaron Ramsey of Cardiff is also a done deal to Man United but he will play another season on loan for Cardiff and is seen as a natural replacement for Paul Scholes.

nsno.

  manchester united transfer update:

Cristiano Ronaldo has been thwating rumours regarding his future, well I now know why. He has previously stated that, ''there will be news in 2/3 weeks, my club and I will be pleased''.

B4 7th June, we will all see at the bottom of the skysports news screen in yellow.

CRISTIANO RONALDO HAS AGREED A NEW 5 YEAR CONTRACT WITH MANCHESTER UNITED WORTH 44 MILLION. TYING HIM TO THE CLUB UNTIL 2014. Believe me, just all United fans b patient and w8 and see.

Now lets go to the real departures and arrivals expected by the 1 and 2 SIR ALEX FERGUSON/CARLOS QUEIROS.

Ins–

A right back is required to provide extra cover for Wes brown, between VALONE BEHRAMI FREE, OR PHILIP LAHM 7/8 MILL.

A centre back will also be aquisited in case of any defensive disruption between the first choice pair, RIO AND NEMANJA. United are after the young Brazilian power house, perhaps unknown BUENO for 3/4 million.

Finally a centre foward, has we now Tevez and Rooney and perhaps Cristiano now a days are not targetmen. So United will go 4 presence.

it is simply between Klass Jan huntalaer or KARIM BENZEMA. For no more than £25 million.

Has for the young twins from Brazil Rafael and Fabio silva, they will both go out on loan to Sunderland to ge some premier–leagur experience. Where better can you get that, but from under ROY KEANE'S watch.

  Samuel Eto's move to Newcastle United is likely to be announced upon the opening of the transfer window. Deco could also follow him to the North East–the Magpies interest in the Portuguese international is well documented.

  Rafa Benitez will swoop for David Villa this Summer, although Chelsea and Arsenal are both interested. Valencia would sell for around £18 million due to their financial problems and Benitez is hoping he could make the money for Villa by selling Crouch and Carson with Kewell, Finnan, Riise and Voronin also certain to go.

He will only sign one forward to fill the void of 2 going as Nemeth will join the first team squad.

= v1=

  Firstly, can all Man United fans and FC Barcelona fans stop saying that Lahm is leaving Bayern. I play in the Bayern reserve team and he has penned a deal that makes him the highest payed player in Europe.

Bayern Munich INS

Sebastian Frey – Fiorentina

or

Renee Adler – Bayen Leverkusen

Gennarro Gatusso – AC Milan

Massimo Oddo – AC Milan

Tim Borowski – deal already done from Werder Bremen

Bayern Munich OUTS

Daniel Van Buyten – somehwere in Scotland

Lucio – Manchester City

Oliver Kahn – retired

  Sheff United are close to signing Rob Earnshaw from Derby as Blackwell thinks he would be the perfect strike partner to James Beattie to fire the Blades straight to the Premier League next season. He is also keen to bring in Darren Huckerby from Norwich and Luton's Darren Currie and is also keen to snatch David Bell from Leicester/Luton. Stelios Giannakopolous is also a target.

  Walter Smith wants a forward to play upfront with Kris Boyd and play 4–4–2.

Also Daily, Weir and Davis to be playing at Ibrox next season.

  I work in The Marriott in Speke and I have just been asked to book in two Brazilians arriving on Thursday from Russia, Dudu and Jo. Expect medicals on Friday and signed for the Blues by Saturday.

  Afc Bulletin ) ) ) ) )

With Aston Villa having told LFC they want £18 million for Gareth Barry it's heard LFC are no longer interested in Barry. How ever it's heard Arsene Wenger is still monitering Barrys situation and might still make an offer with Hoyte as part of the deal 4 Barry. With Niko Kranjcer having pledged his future 2 Portsmouth will unlikely see him moving to Arsenal or any other club.

  To the person who said mattock to Barnsley, wot a load of rubbish he's going Villa why would he go to Barnsley? y would anyone?

  Liverpool Rumours

Rafa has identified the following areas for strengthening:

RB – Degen (done)

LB – Dossena

CM – M. Johnson or Zapatar (Barry too expensive). The hold here is Sven's future at Manchester City. No players moving until the manager's situation is sorted.

RW – Silva

No forwards will be signed, with Rafa continuing his 4–2–3–1 formation of last season, with Torres and Dirk rotating up front.

jjp

  Rumour on here the other day that Rafa was not going to give anyone the Number 7 shirt because of the pressure it might put a player under living up to Keegan/Dalglish. Paradoxically another rumour on here that the club shop had been instructed by Rafa to order 1,000 more Number 7 shirts ready for a major signing. Which if any is the truth? I can reveal that Liverpool's new Number 7 will be ONE of the following, in order of preference: –

Aiden McGeady (Celtic) (will offer Riise + cash)

Niko Krancjar (Portsmouth) (straight swap for Crouch)

Robbie Keane (Tottenham) (Crouch or Kewell + Cash)

Funnily enough, all three speak English. Remember Rafa's hint a few weeks ago? Speaks English but is not?

  Rob Earnshaw will sign for Forest today and Commons will sign for Derby.

  Fenerbache are prepared to pay £10 million for Andriy Shevchenko although the Ukraine star is adamant on a move back to Italy with AC Milan ready to rescue the Chelsea star who moved to Stamford Bridge for £32 million – two seasons ago.

= v1=

  hello everyone on the bbs.

Barnsley Fc are linked with Matty Fryatt

Also Jon Harley

Mark Kennedy

Also they are making a cheeky offer for Nicky Maynard of Crewe

  The Hammers ins: Nicky Shorey, Jermaine Pennant, Richard Dunne and David Lanzafarme.

Outs: Boa Morte, Davenport, Ljungberg, Quashie, Gabbidon, Mullins and Cole.

  Mark McGhee flying out to Lithuania to meet Vlad. Motherwell granted Hearts request to speak to McGhee. No compensation has been agreed yet.

  Expect lots of negativity from Liverpool no chance of winning league Torres and Gerard for sale in fighting at the club. This is a ploy by Benitez to make the Americans put up the transfer funds and make Parry do his job Dossena will be signed by Wednesday Barry before England play and then the two big ones Villa of Valencia and Alves of Seville who will play in front of Degan as a wing back others will be linked but this is who he wants

  My mate is a postman in Birmingham on Paddy Berger's road and Paddy told him that he was off for talks at Hull.

  Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o are both set to leave FC Barcelona with the Brazilian playmaker set to join Arsenal in what will be a surprise move and Eto'o set to join either Liverpool, Chelsea or Inter.
