Its all quiet on the Leicester front as Allen is away on Holdays but is still working hard. Gravassen is now a target for the foxes in a deal which could cost up to 2 Million. This is seen as a gamble but Allen is one for trying to sign players he knows he can't get, Paulo Di Canio at Brentford, maybe one day it will come off. Reported by another source on this site yesterday about Gravessen. Newcastle United are also interested which is more likley and too are Boro.
Liverpool Rumours: In a massive week for LFC expect the new stadium plans to be released followed by the following new signings;Fernando Torres for 20 million plus Cisse, Simao Sabrosa 12 million, Leighton Baines 5 million.
With the takeover of Wolves to be completed in days, Wolves are to make some qulity signings for there push for promotion this up coming season.
Ins: Richard Stearman
Heard it from club personnel at Spurs that they are trying to get rep of ireland int Aiden McGeady away from Celtic with a 5 million bid (extra 3 million on goals, apperences, that sort of thing) . also trying to tie up a deal for Mido to leave the club and to take ghaly with him to Man City.
With the ever present possibilty of either Owen but more likely Martins leave to fill Henry's boots Newcastle will complete the transfer of Darren Bent for 18 million as Spurs will offer a deal which ADD up to 17 million but Newcastle will offer the full amount, followed by Maceo Rigters but its not going to stop there. As Owen hasn't proven anything to anyone regarding his fitness and talk of Owen going for even cheaper in the Jan window Allardyce may return to The Trotters for Anelka and/ or Diouf as Allardyce likes the idea of at least two flyers in his front line. Either both at once or one now and one in Jan.
Dyer is to go to London with West Ham reported to have shown a firm interest and Spurs in the shadows. This would clear the way for Julien Faubert and Geremi which fills both RM and RB with Nobby.
Not sure about Carrick returning to the NE but I do think that Sam will return to France for the likes of Diarra CM (Lyon) Beye RB/ CH and Lucien Aubey LB/ CH who wants to leave Toulouse and a 2 million offer should do it with a 1 mil bid from Lens having already been turned for the 23 year old.
There is alot of talk regarding Julien Faubert and Newcastle but he has expressed his want for a transfer to Rangers. Newcastle will turn their attentions to Maxi Lopez for 6 mil, also a cheaper option and go for Luke Young, 3 mil, to fill the RB position as well as Geremi, free.
Martins maybe tempted away from Newcastle with a move to Arsenal but he will be reminded that only a fool would leave on the eve of the revolution. If he were to go Newcastle will go for Tevez with a huge wage and transfer to match and shock fans around the country.
Ok my mate the delivery driver has now got such a strong rumour he's put money on these players joining LFC. he's so tight that he gets arrested every time he breaks into a £20 note, so for him to put £50 double on these players has made me sit up and take note. he says that Torres will definitely sign for LFC, with Garcia going the other way, not cause Benitez wants rid, but cause Garcia's wife just cannot settle and has returned home to Spain forcing Garcia to seek a move. the other done deal is Mancini. Go Rob the bookies boys, remeber where .
Theres going to be big changes at Barca this year mostly in defense. Chivu already favours a move to Barca and I think it will be completed soon for 10 million, he will fill the LB position as Gio has left. I am afraid to say that I think Zambrotta will leave as reports say he is set to join AC Milan the replacement will be Abidal. 1 of Sylvinho or Beletti will leave, as there will be a swap between Barca and Man United for Gudjohnson for Pique. Motta is set to leave with Edmilson, Yaya Toure and Marquez playin Def Mid. And this year you will see more of Giovana Dos Santos and Krcic this year, both are classy players for the future.
Been hearing sum rumours looks like exciting times ahead at Man City. they will look to sign Owen, Wright–Phillips, Ljunberg, wilhemsson (spelling), Gonzlez and probaly a few more with Sven's 50 million budget. Spurs look like they will get Kaboul, M. Petrov or Faubert and Bent. I'm hoping that there will be someone to replace Davids as well. Please, Please M Jol don't buy bent and sell definitelye what is the point of losing 17 million, getting in 12 million and ending up with a worse player. definitelye is better than bent. Mido will also probaly leave which is a shame as he was quality the season before last but his comments about signing for Spurs being a mistake will probaly see he never plays for the lilywhites again.
Just getting back some credibility. I said a few weeks ago that a friend had swore to me that he saw Henry outside Anfield, and while he's signed for Barcelona now this might still have been true. Most reds (including Alan Kennedy) now believe that we did have some form of talks with Henry, evidently though they were unsuccessful. So in short, don't think I'm another fantasist and take note of my rumours. I know this is hardly a rumour anymore, but I'm ALMOST certain Torres is going to sign for Liverpool – it's all looking very good anyway. At the moment the fee is around 25 million, including Garcia. Be sad to see Luis go, but looks like we need to make sacrafices to get a quality striker.
= Mackem= have you even been awake for the last 3 weeks? Gavin McCann signed for Bolton on 8 June. Anyway very strong rumours from Man United that Robinho could be on his way, don't know why Real Madrid would let him leave. Also expect Saha to be more likely to leave than Smith, as Smith at least can stay fit, and is more content with being a squad player.
Two bits of gossip Reading fans. Lee Cook will sign next week after we agreed a few with QPR, and Hayden Mullin's has agreed terms. We just that striker now.
Sheffield Wednesday will lose out on both Billy Sharp&kenwyne Jones.
Instead The Owls will settle for Adebayo Akinfenwe from Swansea&Jermaine Easter from Wycombe.
However better news for Wednesday fans is that Steve Watson will be signing soon.
The Premier League goalkepper is Ross Turnbull.
Latest information also suggests Laws will raid Leeds for Shaun Derry.
I was working in chigwell near where a few Spurs players wprk and saw Nigel Reo Coker pull in to the massive complex with a gf or women friend dunno if he was looking at houses of visitin sum1. Bad signing in my eyes if do happen tho
Okay, got to post this because I returned from Glasgow for work (I am an advertising salesman) and while I had a sandwich in the cafe, Kris Boyd was sitting on a high stool with a coffee. I spoke to him and I have it on good authority he has had talks with Roy Keane over a £7 million move to Sunderland. Believe it or not but I swear to god.
I work in a large retail shop in Liverpool, James Beattie was in shopping. Surprisingly he was quite popular, whilst he was being papped, he let slip that he's about to join Spurs. Apparently Jol wants a target man to replace Mido.
"As much as it pains me to slag off a fellow Sunderland supporter, mightymackam is talking total and utter hogwash when he states that Alvez and Baines are currently resident at the Roker Hotel in Sunderland pending their imminant signing for SAFC. First and foremost potential signings are usually 'housed' at the Seaburn Hotel not the Roker. And secondly and more significantly, Mr Baines was actually in Liverpool today (Tuesday) resident at the Radison (5 star hotel). Dont know what he was doing in Liverpool I must admit, but he was. I'm a Merseyside Police Officer and saw him in reception. Make of that what you will. Just fed up with silly folk posting silly stuff on here"
LOL Leighton Baines is a born and bread scouser and by the way is my birds cousin. Now for the info. Leighton will be staying at wigin unless Liverpool come in with an offer for him as he wants to stay in the northwest and belive me he will never sign for United as all his family and himself are die hard red's
ASTON VILLA INFO
Expect Scott Carson, Shaun Wright–Phillips, Nigel Reo–Coker and Luke Young to sign for Villa next week, for a combined fee of around £25 million. The following fortnight or so should see another 2 or 3 players – as yet unidentifed, although a striker will be one – probably for around another £10 million/ £15 million combined.
After signing Russell Anderson, Keane will give the youth a chance by purchasing 17 year old centre half Danny Smithwhite from local rivals Middlesbrough. He impressed Keane in a youth match last season and the initial fee is said to be £200,000
Fulham have asked about Flamini but he has turned them down due to the style of play that Sanchez likes his teams to play
West Ham United fan. saying that Craig Bellamy will joinhis club for free. Ya what? Why would Liverpool let a player with 3 years left on his contract, signed for 6 million, leave one year later for free?
He well join Bolton for 8 million as Anelka's replacement.
Chinedu Ogbuke 6 million
C. Davis 8 million plus players on loan
Miguel 13 million
Renato Augusto 13 million
Dimitri Payet 5 million
Alexandre Pato 12 million
Guardardo 4 million
Lukas Podolski 15 million
But leaving is
Ljungberg 4 million
Flamini 5 million
Adebayor 9 million
Helb 9 million
Alaidare 2 million
Senderous 7 million
Henry 16 million
Song 3 million
Fabrice Moumaba 4 million
To the Sunderland fan who said Sunderland fan who said we won't sign Alves because he is one of the best full backs around. Sorry to inform you, but Dani Alves isn't the player that we are after. If you read any of the rumours over last month then you would realise that the player in question is a striker who plays in the dutch league. His name is Alfonso Alves. Also to whoever said that Sunderland won't sign Craig gordon because they arent a big enough club, have you seen our training facilities and stadium? They are some of the best in Europe. Keano has only made low key signings so far because his main transfer targets have either been on international duty or just finished a hard season and are on their holidays. As for Newcastle fans being immature as usual, here's one for you. How does it feel having a new owner that owns the company which makes the worst football kits around at the moment? Expect them to replace adidas next season as your new kit supplier.
Sunderland to sign:
c Davis (maybe)
Makaay won't come – he want's to be 100% assured of a first team place Appiah deal llooks unlikely as the SPL doesn't appeal to him much – Rigters and Fanni done deals
outs – Naka (maybe) £8 million at least
McGeady is unsettled due to threat of first XI position excpect Sunderland to capitalise
Riordan to Birmingham £1 million
Over and out CFC
