To the guy who thinks Akos Buzsaky will join The Foxes. Good rumour to post mate but it is incorrect. Expect the Hungarian to join Queens Park Rangers either Monday or Tuesday this coming week. This is a fact as the paperwork is already done.
Also Vine to join for £1.5 million and offers to be made for Cranie and Mancienne as we put together a team capable of promotion.
Ben Foster will not go to Celtic for £2.5 million. Sir Alex rates him highly but he's injured at the moment.
Scott Carson will join Aston Villa in the Summer for around £8 million.
Arsenal will not pay anymore than £15 million for Narsi, leaving the way for Liverpool and Manchester Untied to sign him
Manchester City will not sign Owen in January because he's had that Clause took out of his contract and they value him at around £15 million.
Martins will leave in the Summer for £13 million to an Italian club
Leicester City Rumours. Mike Newell was at the City v Barnsly game on Saturday. more than likely watching the match before being interviewed on Monday along with, Mike Burrows, Grame Souness, Ian Dowie and Paul Jewell (if interested and if cov will let Dowie open talks. )
Expect Gerry Taggart to stay as part of the set up, and maybe a place for Walshie.
Plymouth Argyle are in hot pursuit of Neal Eardley, an 18 year old Welsh international, Oldham however are wanting in excess of £1 million pounds for him.
Meanwhile sources close to Home Park believe Akos Buzsaky will be joining Queens Park Rangers shortly. 100 percent.
14 year old Plymouth Argyle Goalkeeper Ben Hardie has been touted for England U16's, and Arsenal, and Liverpool have been sniffing around too.
Here's my predictions:
Jermain Defoe – £9 million (in that region)
Stewart Downing – £11 mill
Stephen Appiah – £6.4 mill
Andy Johnson – £10 million (to the Hammers)
Andy Van der Meyde – £2 million (probably Derby, Fulham or Sunderland)
Protesters at the Reebok Stadium and the fact that many people boycotted Bolton's match with Villa, making it the lowest attendance at the Reebok by some 4,000 fans have lead to the possibilty of Megson facing the sack within just a week of appointment. It is understood that after the match Bolton chairman Phil Gartside has flown to London in his helicoptor for serious talks with Bolton owner Eddie Davies. Bolton supporters chanted "sack the board" and owner Davies who was watching the game on TV and the empty seats has ordered Gartside down to his home in London for crisis talks. Bolton Wanderers could be in line to try and lure Martin Jol to the reebok. The fact that Megson has not been given permission to change any of the backroom staff indicates that Megson's reign at Bolton could well be short lived.

andriano would be a swap for Gilberto + a bit of money, the deal was made in the Summer
Richards after the 6–0 loss to Chelsea wants to leave and go to his favourite team Arsenal
leaving would be
Man United will not sign VELOSO. he does not like nani.
LFC will make twin bids of 19 mln Euro/apiece for Ricardo Quaresma and Joaquin Sanchez to solve their winger issues for once and for all. Nasri is on the way, too. No way will Arsenal spend that kind of money on him, he is Liverpool bound per the Cisse Clause.
Arsene knows – O.k lets get some things straight. Arsenal are the second Richest club in the world.The £73 million is a cash surplus that is in the bank.
Hicks and Gillett are not spending any of their own money all they are doing is guaranting the loans that are being taken out. They are also about to plunge Liverpool into £500 million worth of debt that will be taken out against the clubs assets. They are doing to Liverpool exactly what the Glazers have done to Man United.
AW has set his sights on three players they are Jeremy Menez (as Monaco), Samir Nasri (Marseille) and Luka Modric (dinamo Zagreb).
Liverpool asked about a first option on Nasri but OlymPique Marseille said no.
Steven Taylor – £6 Mil
David Bentley – £7 Mil
Stewart Downing – £7 Mil
Kerlon – £6 Mil
Andy Johnson – the Hammers – £9 Mil
James Mcfadden – Celtic – £7 Mil
Van Der Meyde – Udinese – £3 Mil
Pienaar/Gravesen (end of loan)
Neville – Newcastle – £4 Mil
Arsenal have signed Modric on a pre contract agreement and Capel who is expected to come at the end of the season. Wenger was intersted in signing Nasir but Liverpool are also and Arsenal do not want to spend over £14 million on a player who will not even be in his first 11 as Hleb, Roskiy, Eboue and Modric will be rated higher. Gilberto Silvia is joining Juve for a undisclosed fee. Diarra will stay and get Gilberto's famous 19 and Modric will wear the number 8 famous from Freddy. Neither Hatem Ben Arfa or Karim Benzema will sign because they are far too much. Wenger has signed Macauley Chrisantus but is not sure if he should wait until next season to bring him in as he will go straight to the reserves. Bendter is going to Parma and Wenger has 4 Italian defenders in mind and all under 20. He is expected to sign 1 before January.
Benni Mcarthy (in Summer if Eduardo Da Silvia does not perform)
With the large transfer kitty, new and improved facilities, reserve depth, a good season, and some "equity" Arsene is planning on cleaning out much of his midfield. Out will be Gilberto (Valencia), Diarra (Lyon in a swap), Rosicky (Villareal), Song (cheap to Birmingham). Bendtner is also gone, probably to a German side where the style is more his. Lehmann, Senderos and Eboue are gone, too. Coming in will be Argentine Goal Keeper Juan Pablo Carrizo, Dutch def. Kevin Hofland, English def. Micah Richards, Croatian mids Luka Modric and Ognjen Vukojevic, Turkish mid Yasir Elmaci, Brazilian winger Lenny, and French forward Karim Benzema.
Walsall fans – Do not be surprised if Richard Money leaves the club. With Iain Dowie being tipped to be Leicester's No. 1 target, the Coventry job will be available and Money has emotional ties from there in the past. He is not happy with Walsall, feeling the chairman has sold him short and he has been trying to engineer his own exit, if the Coventry job does come up for grabs, expect to see him walk.
these are only opinions/rumours and not fact so do not hold me to them.
Mcfadden – Rangers £? (strong rumour)
boyd – Bolton £3 million (WILL leave in January)
Keane – Celtic £3 (it will happen, sooner or later)
Riordan – anywhere free (guy justs wants to leave)
The Rangers rumours are correct both Ferguson and Boyd will leave in January – Ferguson will sign for Newcastle in £5 million deal Boyd going to Sunderland. Walter Smith is desperate to bring McFadden to Rangers although the players preferred choice would be Celtic. Gattuso will be brought in to please the fans and given the armband vacated by Ferguson. 100 percent accurate
These rumours may not be 100 percent and I do not want be acused for false transfer rumours. I know a guy who is usually very good when with transfers as he first told me Bale would join Tottenham.
Ramos is looking into possibly buying former team mates Alves, Kanoute, Adriano, Escude, Palop.
Also he has had interested in Riquelme or Arteta for creativity in the midfield which Tottenham desperately.
Berbatov may leave January or Summer but it is more or less guarenteed he will not stay. Possibly why Ramos is keen about bringing Kanoute back.
