Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Derby will tie up the signings of full backs Jay McEvilly and Tyrone Mears next week. Mears will sign a 3 year deal for £500,000 from West Ham and McEvilly will sign a 3 year deal from Blackburn for £350,000. Adam Bolder will finalise his £100,000 move to Hull next week after he rejected QPR to return to his home town club. Nathan Doyle will stay with Bradford for the rest of the season. Derby are also keen on singing Cecilio Lopes from under the noses of Watford for £60,000.
I've heard from a very reliable source close to Monaco football club that Mohamed Kallon will be joining up with Watford football club. The highly rated striker will engage in discussions with Watford next week and undergo a medical.
he will bring some much needed class to the Watford attack and help Watford maren'tain a decent run of form with the obvious exception of United next week
David Prutton will leave us and join his old club Forest on Monday!
Celtic will make one last bid of £5mill for the Hibs pair Thomson and Brown and will buy either James Beattie or Robbie Keane to partner JAN THE MAN UP FRONT. Doumbe looks like a good buy and Jamie McCarthy will chose Celtic ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool. Shaun Maloney will go to either Villa or Fulham and Beattie will go to Aberdeen on loan.
NEW CELTIC TEAM
Doumbe McManus Caldwell Naylor
Nakamura McGeady/ Brown
Vennegoor J. Beattie/ R. Keane
Song to move to Sochaux on loan, so expect Mark Randall or Matthew Connolly to replace him as Wenger will not sign anyone in January. Freddie to stay and might be used as bait for Ribery in the summer. Gareth Bale to Sign for Man United or Spurs and not AFC.
I work at the Galpharm stadium as a steward and I recently saw peter jackson giving Lee Trundle a tour of the ground, this is to coincide with the Abbott deal. Expect him to sign before the end of the week. Jacky.
Thierry Henry Staying at AFC. He is not playing for the money like Cashley Cole but for the love of the team
AFC to sign in the summer:
4) baptista or robinho
2) hoyte (loan)
4) aliadiere (loan)
Wenger is not looking to buy anyone in the January transfer window fact. He is lining up two or three bids in the summer that will see Arsenal definately challenge for the league next season. Firstly Larsson, will join Birmingham permanantly, Muamba or Song will leave (not both!), Ljungberg will go to Italy in exchange for Buffon and the clearance of Juventus's debt with Arsenal. Lehmann will go back to Germany, rumour has it to replace Kahn at Bayern Munich. Aliadiere will leave to achieve first team football and Lupoli will go back to Italy to do the same. Wenger will bring in Ryan Babel from Ajax, Nuri Sahin from B. Dortmund and the biggest transfer deal Franck Ribery from Marseille.
The new Arsenal line up will be as follows:
Buffon / Eboue / Toure / Gallas / Clichy / Rosicky / Fabregas / Gilberto / Ribery / Van Persie / Henry
Almunia / Hoyte / Djourou / Senderos / Traore / Hleb / Diaby / Baptista / Babel / Bendtnar / Adebayor
Poom / Gilbert / O'Caerill / Connolly / Flamini / Randell / Merida / Denilson / Sahin / Simpson / Walcott
Come on your gunners
UNITED RUMOURS Fergie will buy Hargreaves at the end of the transfer window for 21 million pounds! Nani is another option to come before the transfer window ends!
Miroslav Klose- 15 million Euros. (If have a friend playing for Werder Bremen B he knows that it's true)
Deco- 17 million pounds
Nelson- 10 million Euro!
Gareth Bale to sign for United in January 31 this year!
Also shocking rumours Leo Messi to sign for United for a huge fee- 32 million pounds
United to lose- Alan Smith - Everton - 7 million pounds.
O'Shea- Newcastle- 6 million pounds!
Wes Brown and Kieron Richardson to Tottenham- 15 million pounds together!
Silvestre- PSG - 3 million pounds.
And sad rumours- Giusseppe Rossi to go to Barcelona for not less than 17 million Euro!
These Rumours are certain. I am Les Kershaw (United scout)'s son, so He knows some things!
Forest will sign Prutton on Monday or Tuesday, with another one possibly coming in. I believe it to be Chambers. Also, Lester will be going nowhere.
I can't believe all these rumours from Liverpool fans about Henry joining them. There is no way that's going to happen, why would Arsenal sell their best player? especially to Liverpool, alot of Liverpool fans criticise Chelsea spending 30 million on a 30 year old so why would they spend 35 million on someone who is 29 this year!
Liverpool will however sign Milito in the summer, Kewell will leave in the summer
Spurs will sell Jenas to Portsmouth in the summer
Kaka won't leave Milan, more chance of Henry to Liverpool
LFC HAVE NOT confirmed an approach to Henry. As a Red supporter, I'd love to see Thiery there, great if they did talk to him, but there has been absolutely NO CONFIRMATION from anyone at LFC that it has been done. Real rumour: LFC have been looking into US central defenseman Onyewu as cover in the defense. He's big, strong, physical and young and would be a great backup that may turn into a great starter with a few years in the league. Chelsea is also very interested and this could turn into the first level bidding war between the two flush teams.
Manual Fernandes's move to Everton is off because Kenwright won't pay £6 million for him. Moyes is reported to be fuming after the Sissoko thing because. Liverpool WILL pay the £6 million!That's right-if the Mascherano appeal fails, Fernandes will be a red.
Bale will not go to Man United because Evra has settled in now and looks to be the best left back in the prem. He will not go anywhere until summer at the earliest. If he does, he will go to Spurs for definate. However, it could well be another 18 months before he moves.
Finally, Cahill will not move for less than £12. It's my understanding that he is a summer target for Man United to replace Scholes. By the way, Hargreaves 100% NOT moving until summer if he does at all.
Paul hartly will sign for Rangers before the transfer window shuts.
This Deal is nearly done and expect Craig Gordan to move to the premership probs Arsenal as him and hartley were not played in the draw at Ibrox on saturday and the Hearts manager has confirmed that they are likly to leave.
Tim De Cler (AZ) £1m
Maroune Chamackh (Bordeux) £3m
Mido (Tottenham) Swap for Distin
All of these will join Manchester City in the final week of the transfer winodow.
AC 2 SIGN In THE NEXT FEW DAYS=
dean kiely 2.5m,
hermann hreidarsson 2m + konchesky,
wes Brown 4m,
gabriel Heinze 4.5m,
Wayne routledge 3m,

Darren Bent 5m + Harewood&mullins.
OVER OUTS ARE: green, mears, ferdinand, Zamora, newton.
No statement from either side shows that negotiations are still on-going between Bayern and Man United over Hargreaves deal. Unless Bayern are able to find a replacement in the January window nothing will happen until summer. They've resigned themselves to selling Hargreaves, but given their current lack of fit and uninjured midfielders they can't affoard to sell without a replacement on hand. Bayern are aiming for a big name signing to reassure fans, and both Robben and Ribbery are targets.
