Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Expect a busy january in the north east. Newcastle will see 6 players leave the club, Butt, Emre, Bramble, Carr, N'zogbia and Babaryaro. In will be Finnan, Wright-Phillips(on Loan) and an unknown South American Striker Roeder been scouting for last 3 months. Shay given is been touted with becoming Lehmann replacement at Arsenal. For Boro Woodgate will sign for 6 million, and will make a attempt to sign eastwood from southend. As for Mackems out will be Stead, Welsh, Tommy Miller, Neil Collins and Chris Brown. Keane is lining up bids for stearman of leicester, nyatanga on permaent deal, finnan to join after liverpool get in his replacement, Ian Harte to return to english football, and will also bring 2 strikers Nugent from preston as he's impressed with the plans for the future at Sunderland and feels that at Everton he'd not be given enough for a chance to impress. Alan Smith on loan and don't be surprised it David Beckham is wearing a Sunderland shirt next season, keano was very close to his former man utd team mate. Just wait and see in the summer.This is the journalist from Kicker. The rumours that Lehmann will be exchanged for Nuri Sahin are simply not true. Dortmund sold Rosicky and let Koller leave because it was either them or Sahin who would leave and they could not afford to keep them all. Furthermore, Dortmund have Roman Weidenfeller whom they believe is one of the best keepers in the world. If anything, Lehmann wil go to Schalke where he may actually win something. If he does, for some reason, go to Dortmund, it will not be in exchange for Sahin because he would like to play with the young man.
Raul will not leave Madrid. His recent run of good form should see him extend his contract shortly. Real are trying to sign Beckham to an extension so that when he leaves he will not go for free. Also, Robinho will not leave Real unless Real get a great young player in exchange - Fabregas for example. In such a case, Real would also pay on top of the player. It is too early to say whether Baptista will stay with Arsenal.Martin O'Neill's Aston Villa team will be a disaster if he keeps brining back his Seville team. With Sutton, Agathe and Petrov already there, Balde will join in the summer with Thompson and Larsson (who will join as he feels he is in better shape than he thought to retire to Sweden) and do not be suprised when Jackie McNamara signs aswell when he gets fit at Wolves. And ofcouse O'Neill's golden boy Neil Lennon, who is playing brilliantly at the moment but is at the age where he could be finished after his next game. As long as O'Neill likes you, it doesn't matter if you play terrible, he won't drop you. Strachan loves the guys who train the hardest: thus why Dider Agathe and John Hartson were chased out the club, so there is a very good chance Lennon will join Villa in Jan with the rest of the gang. If O'Neill could get Johan Mjallby clearance to play with crutches he would sign him too.
BOONDOCKCastillo will again obtain a work permit as last time has fail to do so. which had missed the opportunity to join manU. ManU will have Castillo, ReoCoker and Nani this Jan.Jammy - all information is wrong wrong wrong. We are NOT filling the ground every week, 48,000 for the last PL Game, wake up moron, we're going backwards. Beckham will certainly NOT join NUFC in the transfer window, expect Beattie and Upson in with a loan for a creative midfielder. The club will be in new ownership sooner rather than later where it will take about 3 seasons for us to become a top 6 side again. We're only a big club in history not the now - time people woke up to that fact and moved on.Expect a shock move by arsenal 4 Beckham ,now lets take alook at the facts . Arsene wenger said Oct 14 " Arsene wenger says England need to recall Beckham to the team "
Oct 21 Henry believes" Beckham should be given another chance in the England team "
Oct 25 Madrid are ready to let Beckham leave 4 as little as 5 million in january . Why are AFC making sooo much noise about Beckham ? come jan we will know !'Wenger is transforming Theo Walcott from a striker to a winger this season' To the person who said this, this is utterly incorrect, AW has already said he wants walcott to develop on the wing like henry because you have to learn to beat defenders, dribble and become confident in one on ones meaning defender not goalkeeper. With regards to el nino the 'cousin' speaks great english fo a spaniard anyway i don't have any source but common sense tells me that if athletico have a good season torres will stay as he said he will find it hard to play for another club in spain and there are no big successful clubs in desperate need of a striker, man u have saha who is scoring regularly as well as ole. Chelski already spent a small fortune on andrei and owner RA won't be happy making another huge loss on a player, Arsenal arent interested as AW believes in what he has at his disposal and only a goalkeeper and a couple of young players will be his main concern, Real out of the question as is Valencia, he has already rejected a move to italian giants inter and barcelona will only attempt to sign him if they get rid of Eto'o which i doubt, so they arent many clubs better athletico who can afford and ATTRACT him. What sign is it to petr cech when chelsea are thinking of signing high profile replacements for him i mean how many clubs in the world have a deputy like c cudicini at the ready.
My rumour is Arsenal to sign franck Ribery and sadly i see lauren leaving for spain with hoyte taking a step up the pecking order, Tottenham to rekindle their interest in downing and arsenal to complete swap deals involving the beast and reyes. nuri sahin possible coming to continue his tutilege under tomas Rosicky.

Master MindHibs will delay the appointment fo their new manager until next week, as they are holding off to see if Terry Butcher loses his jon in Australia, if he does then he will become their number one target.For all u arsenal and man u fans saying u will buy reo coker u can have him. The man has no heart and goes missing when it gets 2 tough. Also he shys away from the tackle so if u want a gutless midfielder u can have him. If and when Pardew is sacked, Alan Curbishely/Claudio Ranieri will be the new manager and bring in
Joe Ledley - 3m
Giles Barnes - 2.5m
Lewin Nyatunga - 2.5mNorwich City will unveil 2 new loan signings within the next few days to ease their injury problems as they have such a small squad. James Hayter is set to join on loan with a view to a permanent move while Carlton Cole is being lined up from West Ham. When these 2 are announced it is expected that Ryan Jarvis will be loaned out with Northampton, Peterborough and Wallsall all keeping an eye on him.
The board have given Peter Grant money to spend in Jnauary and expect a clear out of players such as Matheui Louis-jean, Andy Hughes, suprisingly Youseff Safri, Peter thorne and Ryan Jarvis. Grant has his eye on Lee Hendrie, Richie Jones, Billy Sharp and Akos Buzacky.Should sven take control of west ham expect david beckham 2 join him at upton park!
pardew will only get sacked if the take over actually eva happens!
west ham are not a sacking side FACT!I'd wager a bit of cash on Gerrard to Barca in the summer. I'm not at all saying I know someone who knows someone who cuts Gerrard's grass, but judging by the rumours circulating 'round Liverpool about his missus, I reckon he'll leave the city, and the country, and go to Barcelona. They deal will be one of the largest ever, as Gerrard is one of the best midfielders in the world.The amount of people who are writing absolute rubbish is amazing - don't just copy what the papers say and learn to spell properly.Arsene won't sign anyone in the Jan window and he will sign only 2 players in the Summer.Arsenal don't need a left back they have Clichy and the exceptional youngster Traore.They have some great young midfielders in Denilson,Diaby coming through.Arsene will sign a replacement for mad Jens,a wide midfielder and maybe another forward.
To all Toon fans - Newcastle aren't a big club - you have loads of fans and a good stadium that's all.Big clubs win trophies all the time - you are a average club with a passionate fan base.Now I know this is a rumour site but will every Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle, Real Madrid and Barcelona fan please get their head around the fact that Steven Gerrard is going no-where. Unless you actually know Steven which I doubt any of you do please keep your mouths shut about things you have no clue about. Sure he's going through some bad patches at the moment but everybody does that doesn't mean he's just going to pack up and leave and then when he moves to another club everything is going to be magicaly better and how dare anyone comment on whether or not his children are biolocialy his, who are you to comment on such things? Further more why would you want to say things like that? I have heard of some redicolus reasons as to why players would leave their clubs but that takes the biscuit.
Anyway some real rumours Daniel Alves will make the move to Merseyside in a deal worth around 8 million, Simao will also move for around 9 million as will Kevin Nolan of Bolton for 8 to 10 million although Big Sam wil make it as slow and dificult as possible. Players to be shipped out are Jerzy Dudek to Portugal or Holland, Bolo Zenden most likely to Holland but some Spanish clubs interested and Florent Sinama-Pongolle to Levante.Jermaine Easter is being lined up by Dennis Wise as a January transfer target for Leeds United. Wise is also looking to sell David Healy for around £3 million to raise transfer funds - it is believed that Sheffield United are interested in the striker.
=v1=David Beckham will be heading back to the Premiership in January with Tottenham, Portsmouth and Newcastle United all being possible destinations. Real Madrid want £3.5 million for the winger, should he decide he wants a move in the next transfer window.
=v1=Inter Milan are looking to sign Momo Sissoko in the summer. Liverpool will hang on to the midfielder but expect an offer of around £10 million for the Mali international
=v1=To the person talkin about the walsall youth players apart from matty fryatt who is onli at leicster by the way, who else from walsall has gone on to make it big?????no1!aston villa will sign darren bent for 8m in january and young gareth bale for 5m.maybe a few loans cuming into villa aswell like SWP.Carlo Cudducini will demand a transfer to Italy if Jose Mourinho signs another goalkeeper. inter Milan and Fiorentina are interested in the Chelsea keeper and will both make offers in January.
=v1=Valencia are set to join Liverpool in the race to sign Seville defender/winger, Daniel Alves in the January transfer window. The Brazilian looks certain to leave Seville sometime soon and the 2 clubs will battle it out to sign the £11 million rated player.
=v1=Ledley king is set to make a shock move to london rivals arsenal to replace sol campbell. it is rumoured that arsene wenger will have to bid around £10 million to require king. this is only days after wenger stated he was not buying anyone in january.We are close friends of jermaine pennant and he says that gerrard is going to leave because he wants to win more trophys, preferably with barcelona. crouch may be leaving for first team football and david villa is the replacement as he has a 24million release clause.
newcastle news- rossi will stay on loan for the season and n zogbia is not going anywhere. luque to real madrid on loan for the rest of the season and could be baught for 5 million at the end. mathew upson will join for 3million while babyaro will leave if newcastle sign wayne bridge.
man u news- torres will sign in january followed by hargreaves at the end of the season. adu will then arrive for 5million because he won't get games for chelsea. simao will sign for 12million if richardson leaves for everton for 5million. this is not guesses this is 100% true homeboys!!!This is the biggest news of the week, Paul Robinson will join liverpool next summer to replace Reina who will head back to spain, robbo will sign for £8mill + Dudek.Gerrard will definitely not leave liverpool, rumour has it Eto'o will sign for lfc with bellamy and Neill (blackburn) goin to barca.Attention all Celtic fans, with the news of Shaun Maloney's imminent departure from Paradise, watch this space wee Gordon to make a swoop on young Steven Naismith of Killie in Jan and foil Arsenal's attempt to lure him. Don't blame him as Celti are quite clearly a bigger outfit!The poor form shown by Newcatle will not be aloud to go on, If they don't pick up 4 points from the next two games then the manager will be replaced by Mcleish, I had hoped he would have waited for a bigger profile club, As for Rangers, Newcastle haven't won anything for DECADES let alone this year, A poor Rangers team last year were knocked out of the last 16 in the Champions League, Rangers and Celtic would be right up there in the premiership, Just let us in but you are terrified.
The profile of Scottish football is put down in Engerland by the dim and thick but what is going on in the pemiership is worst than our Jock land.You have Chelsea, Man u Arsenal (who I think is the best footballing side down there) and the rest no better than Rangers and Celtic up here, look at Celtic Gubbing Liverpool Twice, Blackburn and recently just losing to Man u down there.
Newcastle are a black and white team in a black and white era, The money spent down there is shameful on the likes of Heskey, Rangers made the last 16 on a shoe string and now have one of the best managers in the world so you can say in truth the premiership is far stronger than ours but the rest are rubbish.Newcastle could go down this year and I feel sorry for their fans as they are a team I like.Ade Akinbiyi will be farmed out on loan to Leeds United this week until January, when a permanent deal could be agreed. Akinbiyi and team mate Claude Davis had a training ground brawl this week, but I hear that it was Akinbiyi who instigated the events, not Davis. Neil Warnock will ditch the former Burnley striker, albeit temporarily, with Dennis Wise looking to make Akinbiyi his first signing as Leeds manager.PAOLO DI CANIO WAS SEEN GOING INTO CHARLTONS TRAINING GROUND AT SPARROWS LANE TODAY FACT . WATCH THIS SPACEMiroslav Klose is set to Join Aston villa for no fewer than 11Million on the 3rd of January, reports coming out of Bodymoor heath also suggest Villa will complete the signing of James Milner for 4.5Mill half a million more than what Newcastle wanted in the Summer.Newcastle are about to complete the loan signing of Preston North End's England Under 21 International, David Nugent. The premiership strugglers with a failing strike force are hoping to boost the amount of goals scored with Nugent's youthful exuberance. The deal is to be made permanent in January for a sum in the region of £3 million.
Newcastle are also poised to sign young Aston Villa Centre Half Gary Cahill on loan with a permanent three year deal in January for the sum of £2 million.
