Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.



Does anyone have any info as to where Paul Dickov is going to end up? hopefully he will come back to Leicester but I doubt it
  Sunderland To Sign El Hadji Diouf From Bolton For A Fee Believed To Be In The Region Of 2. 5 – 5 Million. Also A Bid Has Been Rejected From Marseille For Taye Taiwo And Keane Is Ready To Up His Offer. Kaboul Is Not Coming To The SOL BUt Malbronque Will Be In By The End Of The Week
  One for LFC fans.

I cannot disclose my source, but needless to say he's reliable.

It would seem the barry transfer has some time to run yet, as it turns out Xabi is to be used in part exchange for Aguero from Athletico Madrid, but the two clubs have agreed to wait until after the olympics, although LFC have agreed not to play Alonso in the Champions League qualifiers – fact.

AM are looking at bringing Silva from Valencia in as a replacement.

Barry may be brought in before Xabi goes but LFC are in no rush until the draw for qualifying is made.
  Just a short message to confirm that glenn Roeder could sign a 6 foot, 1 + forward from an unnamed Premiership side.
  Arsenal will eventually sign Amaury Bischoff, as well as Gokhan Inler from Udinese. As for a centre–back, Wenger may sign either kompany or Zapata in January if thier price goes down.
  Not a rumour just a bit of interesting info regarding Van Der Vaart's contract which may have an effect on his future with Hamburg and probably the reason why Real only offered 6 million Euros ''Van der Vaart's contract runs until 2010, but there is a Clause which allows him to leave for a fixed price of £1.5 million Euros in the year before his contract expires''
  Marcelo Mattos from Greece to Portsmouth for £6 million. Left sided defensive midfielder to replace Sulley; his agent is Zahavi.
  Cetic to sign tonel (CB) from sporting lisbon and asier del horno (RB)
  Hats off to Fabregas who wants to probably retire an Arsenal Player
He is a future Gunner captain and even though I are not a gunner fan, I believe he will be the best midfielder in the world and love watching him light up the premeir league.
rumours ahoy–
Beloved Boro– I am very happy to see that southgate has lost interest in harper and will be probably filling in with an experienced Defensive Mid.
Sad if Downing goes, but lets see

Lampard is staying now, so no more Central midfield sigings but Malouda will leave and Robinho will come in

  Forget the possibilty of Alonso Leaving. it is not going to happen, he has stated several times he does not want to leave, and with Rafa not gaurenteed a replacement why would he sell, gareth barry is not worth more then £18 million but yet Villa want more. Robbie Keane and a winger is the only signings left to come (obviously with the possibilty of more youngsters) Pennant, Voronin and Benayoun to go to free up some funds

Title winners 08/09 PEPE LFC
  West Bromwich Albion will sign Louis Saha, Sean Davis and Meite before the transfer deadline
Source very close to the club
  After just passing by parkhead I took my kid up to the main exit AND To my suprise I seen Roberto Carlos walking out the door and go straight into a car as if they were in a rush to take him some were

what do you think
  If you go on the official sporting website you will see that veloso and moutinho are going Everton both have stated a strong desire to play there together. joining them will be Diego millito with Johnson departing: ) up the Toffees
  Quincy Owusu–Abeyie 2 sign for Birmingham on loan with view 2 pernament deal. maybe ben watson to sign
  O'Neill from Middlesbrough to Fulham (Homesick) £3 million
Graveson to Sunderland. Bosman
Johnson from Middlesbrough to Rangers (Loan)

Southgate desperate for a keeper as both replacements for the Aussie are poor.
  Liverpool's Nemeth to join Preston, with Carlisle's Simon Hackney also incoming.
  Arsenal
REPLACEMENTS
Flaminis replacement will be one of two players these are miguel veloso and Yaya Toure, Wenger sees Alonso as two old and not defensive enough. Veloso would cost around £16 million but Toure would only cost £10 million due to Arsenal's good relatiionship with FC Barcelona (Henry, Hleb). Nasri came in to replace Eboue rather than Hleb, Eboue will now choose whether to settle for a sub or reserve place or move on for around £8 million. Hlebs replacement will be Arshavin for £21 million as FC Barcelona are not interested anymore and he has said he wants to join Arsenal, however if Wenger is priced out of a move he will swoop for the £18 million David Silva. Another target is Kranjcar for a bargain £10 million. The final target for this position is Cazorla for £8 million who would go on the right and Nasri would come in on the left, however Liverpool are desperate for a cheap winger and may snap up Cazorla.
ADDITIONS
The only additions will be a possible £8 million move for Albiol of Valencia and a move for Robert Green for £7 million. These are on top of already signed Ramsey.
PROMOTIONS
Expect to see Walcott overtake Rosicky in the pecking order as well as appearing sometimes at forward. Also returning Vela will be prominent in both fa and carling cup campaigns. Hoyte will now be Sagnas number 2. Finally watch out for the spectacular reserves Jack Wilshire and Nordtviet, both are ace.
  Crystal Palace hope to have Michael Brown and Michael Mifsud before end of the week for region all together is £3 million and Ben Watson is set for a £2.5 million move to Birmingham but is stalling because Palace want Jerome as part of the deal
  To the guy that thinks Tottenham and Everton are the wannabes and Newcastle will challenge the top 4 within 2yrs. interesting comments. Very interesting is the list of players to assist this revolution including an ex Spur and 2 current ones representing 3/4 of the total investment. one of the players has just signed a new 5yr contract by the way. Both Tottenham and Everton have challengedfourth place already at least once each. Tottenham have a trophy and 2 xfifth place finishes to their name in three seasons and later stages of UEFA Cup a couple of times. Ok, not exactly Champions League but apart from the big 4 nobody can boast that. Berbatov's agent has always said more about him leaving than Berbatov himself and, is probably hoping for the move more than the player. He will go before the deadline but, if Man United will not stump up the asking price he will go to FC Barcelona with Eto'o 'convinced' to come the other way or, failing that, all the cash used to try and tempt Villa to WHL. Juande Ramos is the key factor here, being a Spanish manager. Benitez is blowing the Pool kitty on Keane, has Torres already and there is still the Barry situation ongoing. atrsenal will not stump up sums of £25–30 million and Chelsea have other targets so, it is Tottenham for a Premier League move now. He knows that one good season means he can pick his club anyway so nothing going to be lost by being the big fish in a smaller Premier League pond for now. If not then the Milito deal is the one that will happen and may do anyway with Bent rumoured to be leaving (likely to Everton when they get AJ transfer money) and the pending need for three new forwards More simple is Arshavin to replace Keane, again Tottenham have the money and the stupid fee and wage figures are being inflated all over the place. £12 million before Euros, £16 million after and now £18, £21.5 and even £24 million – no chance. He will come for £17 million ish and higher wages than Keane and Berbs were on when they go – £80 k per week probably. Another one atrsenal are unlikely to invest in at 27yrs and over £16 million, Man United do not need him, nor do Chelsea, Liverpool, Barcelona, Real or Milan.
  Everton have accepted a £12 million pound bid from Fulham for Andy Johnson and the move will be finilised by the end of the week or by next Monday, then Everton will get jeao moutinho from sporting for £15 million pounds, then Everton will bid £3 million for steed malbranque and possibly try and get Darren Bent on a season long loan, 1 or two more players could be leaving Goodison park as well and expect Van der Meyde to play more this coming season. Moyes to also use some more of the reserves this season.
  LEICESTER CITY RUMOUR

Paul Dickov will sign for City in the next 2–3 days, despite heavy speculation linking him with a move to Blackpool.

This opens the gates for Steve Howard to leave, with Norwich set to capture the forward with an offer of around £1.5 million.

Also, Nigel Pearson has agreed to sell Patrick Kisnorbo to Rangers in January, if the Centre–Back recovers from injury.

SMITHERS POTTER
  Djibril Cisse to be unveilled at Parkhead as Celtics third signing
  Moutinho will not sign for Everton, he will end up at either Man United or Chelsea – due to United links with Sporting and the Scolari connection at Chelsea.
Gareth Barry will only sign for Liverpool if Villa lower asking price to £15 million, paid over three years. If this does not happen Benitez is ready to offer £20 million to Valencia for David Silva.
Rafa will also sign a utility defender to cover the back 4, target as yet unknown.
Xabi Alonso will remain at Anfield after talks with Rafa, and Pennant, Voronin and Arbeloa may be on their way out.
Newcastle will offer £13 million Euros for Fabrizio Coloccini or £20 million euro for both Coloccini and Riki of Deportivo.
Chelsea will sign Robinho for £33.5 million and Drogba will go the other way for £17.5 million.
Real Madrid will offer 75 million Euros to United for C. Ronaldo – which will be rejected – Real will go up to 90 million Euros otherwise they pursue other targets.
  To the person who said that Andy Johnson will join Birmingham and snub interest from Fulham and Wigan. : S. He is doing a medical today and probably will be confirmed tomorrow. you also said that he does not want to live in London, so why would he have played for crystal Palace for four seasons.

Also I think Sunderland, who have been included in trying to sign the highly rated Stuart Downing for £12 million will not happen. There is a decent chance that we may secure goian however since Keane could not agree personal terms could be agreed we may not. There is a likely chance that we will sign Carlos tenorio from Al–Sad in qatar and with a bit of luck we may be able to sign Julio Arca and maybe the likes of jonny evans and Stephen Hunt both for £5 million each. We also might secure Thomas Gravesen.

The Hammers will also sign Adriano for around £8 million + add ons.
  Rubn de la Red; Real Madrid Club de Ftbol – > Aston Villa Ftbol Club. El honorario de alrededor de 12. 53 million.
  I do not no how true this one is but I have heard from a couple of people who are normally pretty good on transfer speculation an they say rafinha will join Liverpool once a deal for Arbeloa has been completed. Also heard Tottenham were looking to bring in eidur gudjohnsen in a cut price deal.
  Man United news >–>–
after missing out on Berbatov, Fergie has turned his attentions to Thierry Henry. Sir Alex wants to sign him because he believes Henry still has at least two years left in him and would be an ideal partner for Rooney and Tevez.
Udinese's Alexis Sanchez is a long term target for Sir Alex and wants to sign him now. a deal could be struck within a few weeks which will see Faderico Macheda joins Udinese on loan and also a smart amount of money going their way.
Ronaldo will stay for another year and will eventually join FC Barcelona in a straight swap deal involving Lionel Messi.
  To the guy that said that Charlton would be signing Linvoy Primus for 800 k that is utter rubbish as Redknapp has said when the player retires he will have a place in the coaching set up but that is only on if he stays with them.

Mendes from Portsmouth will also not be joining you he was a regular player last season and they have now lost Muntari. With Portsmouth's only other signing likely to be a winger Shaun Wright–Phillips.

Cameron Jerome to Charlton it is possible Birmingham do have a lot of forwards and could probably afford this to happen I think this'd be a good idea if it was a six month loan.

I know that inside sources in Birmingham are saying that the management are not very impressed with Bent he was taken of in the friendly against Forest Green Rovers for being so poor. Birmingham are seriously looking at offloading the player before he's even been at the club for a month. Or he could be loaned out.
  Following the signing of Michael Ricketts, Walsall manager Jimmy Mullen has said he has offered a deal to a central midfielder who will also be captain, but who has two offers from Championship teams. Who is this? I can reveal it is no other than Graham Kavanagh, we have made him a great offer and are also considering an improved offer for Russ Penn at Kiddy. Kavanagh would be an awesome signing, so fingers crossed. Up The Saddlers.
