Norwich City manager Chris Hughton today watched Gary Hooper from the stands at Parkhead. It is rumoured that Norwich are preparing a £5M move. However, due to Celtic's form in Europe, Hooper is against the move but has expressed a desire to join the Norfolk club in the summer after the Scottish sides European adventure. Source: Radio

So we reject 7 million from southampton in the summer, but now we'll accept 5 million, less than 6 month later...........yay its the silly season in the 'worlds best (sky owned) league lol


Hahahhah 5 million ure crazy we knocked back more before our champions league run


As a Norwich fan I would love it if people just stopped making this up. Not saying we couldn't get him, but it's going to take a proper amount, closer to 12 million. Should be 60 million if Carrol is worth 35 though. Then again if Torres is 50 we might be looking at 250 million. Maybe we can't get him after all.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 23:06:34

02 Jan 2013 22:41:07
Jon Obika is also in talks with Colchester and Ipswich Town as both try and and sign a goalscorer to avoid the drop.

Hope not I don't think this lad has cut it in league one, why would he be good enough to play in Championship, DJ for Ipswich.

Boro are interested in forrests Lewis mcgugan Mowbray is believed to want him because of the lads versatility he can play out wide in the CAM or as a striker and with him being in the last 6 months of contract would be available at a knock down price between 500k and 1 million

He's no striker pal, wouldn't choose to play him out wide either.


He is not a winger, he is not a striker and there is only one r in forest....other than that an excellent effort


 

 

02 Jan 2013 22:24:55
Charlton athletic are in talks with mk dons over a possible swap of bradely wright-Phillips for Stephen gleeson. Mk dons are keen on signing the striker who is prolific at league one level in a move which could see the striker linking up with his father Ian wright who is currently coaching at milten Keynes dons.

As much as BWP's goals are much needed to push for auto promotion, Gleeson is of far greater importance to the Dons so can't really see this happening before the summer.

ith the 29 different strikers they have on loan

02 Jan 2013 21:29:16
Leeds united in talkes to sign Kenwyne jones on loan till end off season

Tony Pulis needs more strike force even though they are 8th. Kenwyne Jones has been in the First 11 for a lot of the season so I doubt that he will leave on loan.

Bradford City set to sign Dave Kitson from Sheffield United as the player has fallen out of favour at the club after row with manager Danny Wilson. Phil Parkinson wants to buy a target man to put James Hanson's position under pressure

I doubt it considering we're weak in the striking department and Kitson was the one who got Danny Higginbotham to come to Bramall Lane. Kitson is going nowhere. Also Danny doesn't fall out with players.

IJA

David Worrell from Bury FC looking like going to another north west side possibly Preston North End

Think he will be looking to get out of League 1 and join a bigger Championship club.......Think Blackpool would be able to afford him and give him the step up to play at an established club.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 20:21:47
I have heard that Preston have been linked with strikers Jamie Vardy, Joe Garner, Jay Bothroyd on loan and Tom Pope and Jason Scotland on a permanent deal.

OBVIOUSLY they're not all going to sign but maybe 1 or 2.

Just summarising what i've heard so don't shoot the messenger.

Vardy was on 5k a week at Fleetwood and was on 10k a week at Leicester. I doubt 100% that he would sign for PNE on 1k a week when other Championship sides and the top half of League 1 would snap him up on Loan.

As for Jason Scotland & Tom Pope both will be at Championship clubs and not League 1 come the end of Jan

02 Jan 2013 18:32:21
Southampton In's from a good contact:-
-Davide Astori, we all know this one, Cortese has good contacts in Italy and Adkins wants a solid CB- around £9million

-Matt Phillips, £4million + Steve De Ridder on loan

-Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Adkins has his sights set on the young keeper but if the deal fails, Jack Butland is the backup up choice

This will leave the Saints with a starting 11 of:

Ter Stegen,
Clyne, Fonte/Yoshida, Astori, Shaw
Schneiderlin, Cork
Puncheon/Phillips, Ramirez, Lallana
Lambert

Do they have 15 million for ter stegen? And the 50 k a week for his wages?


Ter Stegen isn't exactly 15 million. I think the deal has Gazzaniga set to play for them on loan for the rest of the season. There are the options of instalments and as for the wages 50k a week isn't exactly accurate. Imagine he'd come in at around the wage level of Gaston Ramirez 35-40k per week.


How would you know a players wage, it's not something that people know about. Smells like BS


02 Jan 2013 20:07:27
Saints certainly do. It's just a case of whether Cortese can persuade these targets to join up with them. Cortese wants Southampton to be challenging, and playing in Europe, and this is a mater of public record. Relegation isn't an option. Good times lie ahead for Southampton Football Club. Development of our training facilities/Academy is well under way.

Cortese is one ambitious man with a plan on how to get where he wants to go.


02 Jan 2013 21:22:03
Matt Phillips not fit for another 2-3 weeks and been out 3 months, not even Saints are silly enough to gamble on him surely.


Yes they could pay 15 million, would get him for less I think and his wages we could make work in line with what we have currently


Yeah we have the 15 mill, I imagine hed start on 30k a week with yearly wage increases


02 Jan 2013 21:50:43
Saints have money to spend to improve the squad, and are prepared to spend it. Cortese will undoubtly surprise some with the players he signs.

Expect to see at least 2 big signings in this window, one CB and possibly a GK.


If needs be Yes! people under estimate the wealth and backing the Liebherr Family give to Southampton, the issue isnt the money its the way it used and distributed throughout the club


Can't see ter stegen happening, butland is much more likely


In one word yes, Gaston is on that money however ter Stegen coming to southampton is highly unlikely.


Are people still questioning southamptons financial clout?? really??........really??


 

 

02 Jan 2013 18:30:41
bristol city have made enquiries with notts county

Any idea how much for. I doubt that Notts will let him go as he has been one of the only players performing for us this season.


02 Jan 2013 22:23:22
Heard signing for Brighton is apparently almost done


 

 

02 Jan 2013 18:02:44
Swindon Town goalkeeper Wes Foderingham could be set for a move away from the County Ground in this January transfer window with Millwall, Cardiff and Brighton considering a bid for the 21-year-old.

VERY GOOD KEEPER...
At least worth 3m


He is in talks with Millwall. They only have two keepers at the Den and one on loan


Cardiff already have Marshall, Lewis and Parish I doubt they would sign a new keeper...


Not one of those clubs would be willing to pay what swindon would want for Wes


Swindon could do with the money as major investor set to withdraw his support


No team below championship level will get 3 million for a keeper.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 17:31:21
Young starlet George Green, who has today signed his first professional contract with Everton is a target for Cheltenham Town. Robins manager Mark Yates hopes to tie up a deal with David Moyes for the 17 year old midfielder when the two teams play in the FA Cup on Monday. {Ed003's Note - you need to be 18 before you are allowed out on loan}

He can head out on a youth loan, as yeovil signed stephen caulker when he was only 17 {Ed001's Note - the Premier League introduced new rules which mean that pros may only go on loan from the age of 18.}


Bradford have got first refuseal on Green if he goes out on loan to lower league clubs has he came through their youth ranks before signing for Everton which was put in the deal

Neil Danns and Richie Wellens about to sign for town sign until end of season, along with george boyd

Which town? Ipswich, Huddersfield, any others I can't think of at the moment! {Ed003's Note - I think the poster means Donny}

Nacer Chadli- Jol has gone back in for him (as he has the last two windows), Chadli may think hes above Fulham now.

 

 

02 Jan 2013 17:38:42
Jermain Easter could make a loan move from Palace to Orient, as he hasn't been getting much game time and palace want to make room to bolster their squad.

David Wright could return to Gillingham permanently as they push for promotion.

Spiller and Richards have speculated it will be a signing fans will be pleased about so I feel it could be cody


Be good to see him back good player


 

 

02 Jan 2013 17:39:10
Not a Norwich fan so no need to make this up but this is 100% true. I work in a butchers shop near Norwich and no word of a lie Thomas Hitzlesperger is friends with someone who regularly comes in the shop, and Thomas has been in himself a few times, got his autograph.
So while I was at work the other day Hitzlesbergers friend comes in and I was speaking to him about Thomas and apparently he's really keen on a move to Norwich. Apparently there have been talks between Everton and Norwich and an agreement could be made.
This is just what I've been told by Hitzlesperger's mate so if its not true then I apologise. Decent player IMO.

Cheers lads

Very much doubt this. Only went to Everton at the start of the year!

Graham Dorrans of WBA has been told he can leave as he is no longer featured in there plans. Bristol City of the Championship have had a bid in excess of £1.5million accepted and are due to have talks followed by a medical in time for there FA Cup tie at the weekend.

Behave. They agreed to listen to offers that match their valuation because he wants to be nearer to Glasgow. 1.5m ain't nowhere near the valuation, try 4m


4m minimum

nice try, love the details you've gone into this post. almost sounds convincing. hes joined on loan


Haha, cracking details. He would cost a lot more than that if we wanted to sign him, he's a class act, but we have got him for the season which is positive.

02 Jan 2013 16:46:40
There is a possibility that midfielder Jay Harris will be leaving Wrexham and going to Rochdale.

Due to being short in midfield already, they have had an initial bid rejected for goal scoring midfielder Antoni Sarcevic. Expect another bid as both Wrexham and the player are keen for the deal to progress.

Wrexham have also approached Blackpool with view to taking Tom Barkhuizen on loan for the rest of the season following his return from Fleetwood.

Lot of french newspapers tonight reporting that Leeds have agreed a deal with St Etienne to resign Max Gradel for a fee believed to be in the region of £4M, with Max set to fly to Leeds tomorrow morning to commence contract talks.

Please tell me which papers have said this? ive been reading french papers all day to see what signings PSG are gnna make and havent come across anything about gradel.....hes doin well at st etienne who themselves are doing well in the league and europe he is a key player in their squad and u think he would leave for mid table failure at leeds?


Gibberish - cant afford 1.25M for Wood..


Seems unlikely but sooo hope its true would be a big statement from GFH


What a load of rubbish. Leeds have been taken over but dont have that kind of funds available. Also they wont let him go. Hes been playing as a striker and doing well.


Im sure he's keen, but Leeds wouldnt stump up 4mil for a player we sold for less than 3, even under the new regime.
wally


 

 

02 Jan 2013 16:38:52
John Stead is in talks with a move to Millwall, also Rob Hulse from QPR to Millwall.

After Rob Hulse's comments after a previous bid from Millwall, I don't see any legs on that one.


JohnStead and Rob Hulse both targets a few years ago hope they come though


 

 

02 Jan 2013 16:34:25
Barnsley to sell this month; Craig Davies - Norwich/Reading/Sunderland/Birmingham or Wigan. Matty Done - Crystal Palace/Wolverhampton or Ipswich. Chris Dagnall - Tranmere or Bradford. John Stones - Wigan/Everton or Man city. Jim Mcnulty - Millwall.

If thats true it be a good buy for Bradford


Reading don't want Davies.


Palace have a lot of money left over from the summer when we spent under a million and got loads of money from sales and the Moses deal


Have every player, Davies overrated, Dagnall cannot find the net, John stones showing great potential but would love more money to spend, Done and McNulty are terrible


Matt Done was Dougie Freedman target and now that he isnt quite palace manager any more i would think he not on ian holloways list.


Hope all true except stones... he wont go anywhere already said butterfield made a big mistake and left too soon... others is good news if they go... take a few more with them... get some proper players in... sean o driscoll will bring some quality in... respected manager .. good manager


 

 

02 Jan 2013 16:33:12
Newcastle Utd are the latest team to show an interest in unsettled Norwich midfielder Anthony Pilkington.

This could well be true, if it wasn't completely made up. Pilkington is FAR from unsettled at Norwich.


Since when has Pilkington been unsettled? He's playing regular first team football and is in the best form he's been for us. The only place I've heard he's unsettled is on here. Does anyone have any sources? Ed? {Ed003's Note - nope}


Plays well when norwich are at home is c, , , p when we play away so if you give us 7.5 all yours as i say good home player c..p away player

Cardiff have bid £300, 000 for Huddersfield full back Jack Hunt, this will be rejected. However the swans have bid £3, 000, 000 (sadly) I don't think this offer would be turned down.
Cardiff have waited for a long time now for a reply from Derby for defender John Brayford following their inquiry last month. Another deal that looks like it has fallen.
However, MacKay has re-ignited his interest in Blackpool winger Matt Phillips. Also the recruitment team at Cardiff are looking again at Marvin Sordell, who moved to Bolton last January.

I feel sorry for Sordell not really been given a fair chance to show what he can do at Bolton. I don't know why? So I would sell him to the highest bidder and use the cash on Craig Dawson to shore up our leaky defence.

I would like us to try and get Nick Powell from Man U and Guidetti from City on loan both young with bags of pace.


For 1mill i hear


Anyone else hearing the Chris Burke and Alan Judge signings by Town this Friday???


I will be honest, I just can't see Swansea paying 3m for Jack Hunt. He is good but not worth that much. But if they are willing to pay that much for him then good luck to them. Firstly, I don't do the bitter rivalry against the Swans. They have done well for themselves and I can't wait to play them next year in the Premiership. Secondly it will be fantastic to have two Welsh teams in top flight football and great for Welsh football. Its going to be a long few months before Cardiff get back to beating you Swans again.


Dave Jones doesnt rate llera, and he is out of contract, jones wants to get him out to free up room

Too much movement at baggies, hope you know what you doing clarke, dozza been a top player for us, thorne not good replacement


Clarkes honeymoon is over, lets see him start to manage know half the players want out, has our bubble burst/


Hey ed, how likely is a loan or permanent deal for huddlestone, there were rumours that he could go to reading we are a bigger club. He is a perfect solution with yacob injured and mulumbu at afcon

Bolton to offer 850K for Marek Stech (GK) for Yeovil Town.

Christ knows we need a bloody good keeper. Boigdan is too eratic in his form one minute brilliant the next total carp. The biggest mistake Bolton made was selling Al Habsi.

Marek Stech did he once play for Chelski or WHU?


Was at west ham, but never played. he wont leave yeovil anyway


Stech is a quality keeper and it will be really bad for yeovil if they loose him. And he used to play for west ham.


Signed on for West Ham but not sure if he played
fantastic goalkeeper, be a huge loss is yeovil lost him
DevonGreen


Didn't play for west ham because if he played a prem game a clause would be activated and west ham had to pay spartak Prague a sum of money

Gillingham will sign cody macdonald on loan on Friday along with David wright if palaces injury crisis eases

Well im a coventry city fan and there has been no information on if they are going to sign cody so no...


Palace don't have an injury crisis, just our captain. Wright is a g
ood player, but he isn't up to PL standard like the majority of the Palace squad. He will be a great player for gillingham.


Well it's def cody and it will be a done deal soon


When I hear cody I get a smile so hoeofully were have to wait and see but it most be good cause it's been mentioned a lot so it has to be a fan faviourite and ex either Cody or bayo why else would it be so talked about on websites and ex players

Leeds to sign Rickie Lambert for 2 million pounds

Lambert isn't going anywhere. 2 million is an insulting valuation of a great player.


100% fiction.


Brighton have already offered 4 and was turned down


I dont think so....Saints have turned down a bigger offer from West Ham already.


02 Jan 2013 18:48:36
Rickie Lambert for 2 million pounds, your must be joking when Andy Carrol went for 35 Million...and Lambert has scored eight times as many goals... Lambert price at his age (30) prob got one more good move in him. If we are selling to fellow EPL strugglers... 10 million... Anyone else 6 Million.

reading fc will not be throwing money around this transfer window they accept that they failed in the summer and whilst hoping they will survive they will not gamble with the clubs future they will sign carrico(done deal) rogic and possibly a full back in jan

if relegated (very likely) they will look to invest money up to 10 million (wisely) on a few quality players to try and get back at the 1st time of asking and

players to leave in jan or summer depending on that league rfc are in

gorks
harte

hunt (only if reading stay up, will be offered new contract if relegated)

Bent will go to West Ham and Cole will join the Hammers or depart for QPR.

Expect Sheffield Wednesday's Martin Taylor to sign for Cardiff during January. Malky Mackay is panning the league for defensive cover, according to BBC Sport, has worked well with Taylor in the past and Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly happy to let him go.

MM tried to get Taylor in the summer but the player chose Wednesday. Cardiff then signed Connerly from QPR. So we have no need for another Centre Back. MM looking for a Full back and striker.

Ba to Chelsea paves the way for Andy Carroll to return to Newcastle (liverpool can recall him from his loan in January).
This will free up some funds for liverpool to buy a goal scorer and it looks likely that it will be Fernando Llorente. Daniel Sturridge has already signed for Liverpool, and taken the #15 shirt, and the #9 is still free. You do the math!

"This will free up some funds" Exactly how much do you think they will get for Carol and how much will it cost to get LIorente ? You do the math!


Why would liverpool recall him just to loan him out again? {Ed034's Note - I can't see where he said they'd be loaning him to Newcastle


Carroll has already played for two clubs this season.


02 Jan 2013 19:04:13

Would be surprised to see that happen, Mckay has stated many times that he's not for sale!! Also I wouldnt take anything less than 5mil for him!!


Nope one hes worth more than that and he aint leaving cardiff


Maybe on April 1st.

Redbird


This is a joke. Player is happy and settled in Penarth. Could have left for the Premiership in the summer and only recently signed a new contract.

Above all he is on wages that Boro can not afford and why would he want to leave the team top.


Got to be the worst rumour of the day, no chance of this happening


Seeing as Fulham offered just over 2.7million in the summer before he was on form Cardiff will definately not sell their midfeild talisman.
also , why would they sell to 'boro when they are top of the league being chased by them?


Cant see this happening, he's worth more that we can afford, and we wont pay him top wages.

No going back to Gillingham with kedwell going the other way


Rubbish. We hardly ever buy players; in the last 6 years or so, we have spent 85K on players. Paul Connor for 50 grand in our 05/ 06 promotion season and Wayne Gray for the 07/08 season. He was 35K. No way we will spend 100K on a player!


Person above is correct in regards to Orient spending money. Also, 100, 000 for a 29 year old whose only been any good at one club, his current club.


100, 000 ? Barry Hearn would wake-up in a cold sweat if he DREAMED he had payed even 50 quid of his own money to-wards a players transfer. Someone is having a laugh.

brighton player mackail smith may finally make his dream move to watford, as watford are lining up a 1 million pound bid for him

Why would we bid 1m for him? He would be our 4th best striker at best. Couldn't hack it in the Premier League and he won't help us this season either.


Won't Udinese have to sign him first and then loan him to Watford?


Hardly call it a dream move


After the last few games, Watford have proved that there is nothing particularly wrong with their current strike options.


I genuinely burst out laughing at this. Dream move to Watford, why? So he can stalk Elton John? But seriously, CMS is worth at least 5 times that. Money which Watford don't have.


Craig is a big Watford fan so would be a dream come true. Should he can do it before his move to Brighton, needs supply though which he is not currently getting. I think this could be believable at a fair price


It could be classed as a dream move for one he was born in Watford, and two he supports watford! But I very much doubt this would happen!


02 Jan 2013 17:27:28
Dream because he's a huge watford fan, grew up and went to school in watford etc

But he'd fail to make the bench for us.


Hes a watford boy and a watford fan... get your facts right before you make ill informed comments


"Hardly call it a dream move"
- described as such 'cause he's a watford fan


^^^^^^really? money which watford don't have?


A) As others have said, he supports Watford, so it would be a dream.
b) Sadly for him, I doubt we want him, we have 3/4 better strikers already.
c) To the guy who said 'money which Watford don't have', we now have wealthy owners, and I'm certain if there was a player out of the ordinary we would splash out to sign him, however, Mackail-Smith is not that man.

Arsenal will offer £12 million for Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha, as well as bids for Pepe Reina and Frank Lampard. Arsenal are also confident of signing Derby's midfield superstar Will Hughes for £4 million.

Zaha maybe. i know that man utd are after him. pepe reina yes. if liverpool get butland from birmingham. lampard is poised to go to qpr and he could go monaco if wages right.


Hughes worth more than 4 mil if zaha is going for 12


Arsenal have stopped going for zaha as Walcott has signed a new contract


Palace will reject anything below 20, and I doubt they will pay that with TW set to sign a new contract


Wilf going nowhere


Zaha won't be leaving Palace sorry.


If Zaha goes for 12m Hughes will be around that as well.


Bournemouth or crawley pay their players high wages, and he'll be alright there


Dont think hughes is quite at the level of zaha, Even when wilf is not there himself yet

Also, Barnsley may try and persuade Grayson to leave Town to become their new manager with Gary Megson or Sean O'Driscoll to replace him at the John Smiths.

We dont want grayson!!


Can't see any of this being true, Grayson will be gi en time and finds to sort things out and as for Wednesday rejects coming in you must be having a laugh.


llera has been immense for us, a solid defender and a source of goals, why would DJones get rid of him


Barnsley for Grayson.....right! Why would he want such a dead end job? We are on a bad run, which he will sort out with a couple of decent signings, change of luck etc


Yes please!! Barnsley please take Grayson. Would love o'driscoll. Could get us playing quality football again.

The Italian Club is having Financial problems at the moment and are looking to sell 3 of there main Players. 2 of which have already had offers from Saints. The most obvious one is Astori, who apparently will have his deal go through in the next week. Yet the other 2 players who have had offers there names have not been released? So wonder who out of that squad it could be. But alot of italian clubs looking to sell in the Jan window to ease there finance woes. Saints have been linked with most of the italian clubs, but reports suggest it is mainly due to Saints financial power and the willigness to spend money in this transfer window. So we might see some bargains, if NC is in talks over there

Huddersfield are said to be hunting Sheff Wed defender Miguel angel Llera, he is out of contract and SWFC want him gone by end of January for reinforcements.

Liera and Gardner should be playing basketball not football. Tall, good when facing the ball but slow on the turn and slow over the turf. How would that improve Huddersfield?


Hunt is not leaving but i fan see why you'd say this as he is a good right back and possibly one of the best in the league


 

 

02 Jan 2013 13:28:26
Aaron Wilberham to leave Crystal Palace in January. Any thoughts on this?

Not surprised he never plays might do better at a lower league club like brighton


Who will match his wages? 6k per week plus a potential promotion bonus?


Hope so! Absolute donkey! Coming from a Palace fan!

Swindon Towns james collins linked with moves to leicester, Bournemouth, wolves and his old club Villa. Fee in the region of £500k for the 21 year old

Nice try, guessing the poster saw he scored 4 yesterday so is trying to troll with a fake rumour. Are you an Oxford or Bournemouth fan?


02 Jan 2013 16:01:14
you having a laugh mate , why would he
want to go to villa a team that got more stuffed than a turkey


Have you seem Bournemouths strike force?? They would not want Collins, their 6th choice striker is on loan in the championship and they signed Tubbs for 1million to sit on the bench. Silly rumour


Collins will go to Burnley when Austin moves on for 1.5 million with sell on clause


 

 

02 Jan 2013 13:52:21
Charlton to buy Anthony woodsworth for a fee of about 400k as Colchester might go down and will need to cut costs to comply with financial fair play

Charlton will also sign kevin feely as a fee and personal terms have been agreed, Charlton need this to strengthen for a better end to the season

There isn't a player called Woodsworth at Colchester, maybe you mean Wordsworth?


 

 

02 Jan 2013 13:51:16
Southampton to sign out of favour aston villa frontman Gabriel Agbonlahor for £4-5million. Also Butland £5mil or Ter Stegen (would prefer Ter Stegen) £5mil + Boruc.
Lastly Davide Astori of Cagliari although everyone has heard this one, £8-9 million.

Gabby is injured not out of favour


Looks like these buys will be funded by the sale of Shaw to Arsenal


Agbonlahor isnt out of favour he's injured


If villa ever sell Agbonlahor ill poop in my own hand {Ed039's Note - Lovely)


How many times, Luke Shaw will not be going to Arsenal. Southampton have funds and Shaw makes the first team. No reason to sell him what so ever.


Shaw is going nowhere


I think Gabby would be a really bad idea, not been on the boil for years and would struggle to get in to our reserve team. Also heard from many Villa fans he is there for life, which I for one want to to happen


^ Shaw has said himself he is not going. We can buy all these players easy without selling Shaw


Luke shaw will not be moving to arsenal, Nigel Adkins has said that they are looking to keep him at the club and Matt le tissier has said that they are not in need of the money.


We dont need to sell to fund purchases anymore, where have you been for the last 4 years, especilly now that we are a premier league team and people might want to stay.
We have the best academy in the country and now we are set to use it to push us forward.
We have spent more money on our youth set up in the past year then we have players, theres a reason for that.


They will be funded by the billionair owners


Or funded by the fact that we are the 5th richest club in England... Skate


Or funded by a portion of the 400 million left by Markus Liebherr..


Ter Stegen would be sensational - we need to be thinking big and even if we go down we would be building a squad that would come straight back up for sure


No, we don't need to sell to have funds for players, Shaw is going nowhere


Oh! So what are we gonna do with the other 10M Arsenal would have to give us?
SaintGazza


Butland maybe but we won't get ter stegen he is one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe at the mo! Stop playing football manager haha! I'm a saints fan this wont happen nor will astori transfer! Juventus want him Italian international he will stay in Italy!


You obviously know nothing!

Shaw is not going any where, and Southampton is a very wealthy club!


Shaw won't be sold to arsenal and saints do not need the money from a player sale we have money to spend on players so get a grip and lets wait and see who we get


Agbonlahor is a talent but he blows hot and cold, temperamental, injury prone, out of form and not really a team player. Not in the Adkins mould at all.


If Wenger wouldn't shell out for Demba Ba he is hardly going to pay big bucks for a 17 yr old. Saints don't want or need to sell so they would have to pay crazy money. Not saying it'll never happen but certainly not right now!


 

 

02 Jan 2013 13:46:53
Hunt apparently on his way to the prem with several clubs looking at the 3m rated right back.. Huddersfield would look at bringing in a replacement

Maybe in the summer but 100% not now


Hunt won't be leaving until the end of the season at least, and that'll only be if he wants to


HUnt on his way to Cardiff City, now.


At 3mill we would sell, he has gone off the boil but is a very good player, probably affected by the poor run of form by the whole team. A move might be good for him then we can bring in another loan player.


Bye bye Hunt ! Not even that good ! Too fancy ! Has a couple of good games out of ten ! 3 million ? ! ! Joke ! Worth no more than 1 million !


Hunt for 3 mill, you're having a giraffe, hes good but not that good and needs to learn how to defend a lot better to play in the prem

Brentford will bolster their ranks in January by signing Colchester midfielder Anthony Wordsworth, Charlton forward Bradley Wright-Phillips and Southampton defender Jack Stephens.

Wordsworth will cost us at least 500, 000 really can't see it.


I doubt you'd sign Stephens permanently as he's a hot prospect for us maybe on loan though


In your dreams mate, Wordsworth is certainly not going to Brentford.


Maybe Stephens on loan but not permanent

One of our best youngsters


Very much in saints future plans. Loan maybe. Sold? Absolutely no chance.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 12:17:16
Nottingham Forest have put a 3.5million bid in for watford striker Troy Deeney!

You are joking, he only has six months left on his contract


Deeney wont go he is a first team player and is second goalscorer and playing brilliantly


That's money well spent then


Watford won't let him go as he is a key member in the team and there is a chance of watford getting promotion so he will not want to go to forest


No need to sell now that we have the Pozzo's.


More rubbish


02 Jan 2013 15:03:58
What and you think forest can not get promotion this season?


No forest wont get promotion this season watford have more of a chance under the pozzos.


Who would we buy to replace deeney with 3.5 million

West Brom reject a £7, 000, 000 offer from Newcastle for Peter Odemwingie.

Paper talk says 3 million, he is 31 so if NUFC offered 7 million for him you can bet your house that chairman Jeremy Peace would carry Odemwingie all the way to the Toon on his back for 7 million quid.

Liam Trotter to Leicester from Millwall is nearly complete, will be done in time for the FA Cup game this weekend. Fee believed to be £1.5m-£2m

Shame for Millwall as their good run will end now Leicester have signed their 2 best players.

Leicester also still in for Baptiste from Blackpool for £800k as he has 6 months left on his current deal, good fee for Blackpool

Good, he will not be missed. His work rate is average at best. Ashame they did not apporach Millwall first, because the money could of been used to secure Woods.....


800.000? you leicester boys have always had delusions !!


02 Jan 2013 12:42:33
he's off to southampton


If any team wants Trotter then find 2-5 to 3M at the very least! As for Leicester we will see you in the 'PLAY OFFS'! Im pretty we won yesterday!COYL


Jackett has already said thats no one asked or enquired about our players and if they wanted trotter that need at least 3.5 million


I'd sell only for 2.5-3 million. Not up to the job at Millwall anymore.


02 Jan 2013 14:17:49
Millwalls good run will hopefully mean they arent dragged into another relegation fight, could be a good top 15 finish for them this year.

You catn blame Trotter really, bit like Wood that he knows its a guaranteed route to the prem rather than a relegation scrap


Why do you think baps is going to lecister. He's staying at pool and if he doesnt sign a contract in the summer with us (which is unlikley) then he will leave. 800k for our captain dont think so


02 Jan 2013 15:59:54
To the Blackpool 'fan' in denial about Baptiste, he is definately leaving in January and is 99% joining Leicester, this is almost common knowledge now, come on get your head out the sand, you will still finish top half of the league.

As for the Trotter deal that maybe a bit up in the air now that Blackburn have apporach Kenny Jackett about the manager role


Trotter KJ wouldn't sanction it we are only 4 points behind you so why sell our players like you we need to strengthen not sell to our competition. You can have him at end of season when Leicester are still in championship


Millwall have no money so can't really afford to turn down that fee


It has been agreed that baptise is to go to Leicester for 1 million not 800, 000


Crystal Palace said interest in Baptiste and other Blackpool players


Millwall has 8m in the bank. There is no need to sell any player for less than the market value.


Leicester are trying to buy there way out it wont work. Then the owners will get bored and move on. Leicester play off hopefuls at best.


Millwall have money we just dont flutter it around on rubbish


Nothing has been agreed regarding Baptiste. In fact it was reported on local radio this week that when Baptiste heard about the news he was embarrassed.


Trotter has 18 months left so we would get a decent wedge for the lazy fecker. I'll drive him to Leicester myself.


So many better players than trotter available for that money!


 

 

02 Jan 2013 11:27:53
Tranmere Rovers will, this week, reveal the signing of Jason Koumas on a 6 month deal

If I had a pound for every time I've heard that I might just be able to pay his wages. No truth in that one I'm afraid folks


Koumas signing along side Fowler and this is a done deal , oh what else pigs seen flying round Prenton Park and nesting on the floodlights .


 

 

02 Jan 2013 11:10:10
Jonathan Parr being linked with a £1million move to Leeds..

Your having a bubble bath, add another 2 mill to that and Palace will maybe take you lot serious.And, why oh why would he want to go to leeds.By the look of these boards today leeds want to just about sign the whole championship and beyond.


Would love this but cant see why hed leave promotion challengers to come to a team that's struggling to challenge for the playoffs


 

 

02 Jan 2013 11:09:58
Watford defender Tommy Hoban could be set for a move to Peterborough as Gianfranco Zola looks to bring in another loanee from either Udinese or Granada, and Posh see Hoban as an ideal replacement for Gaby Zakuani, who has joined up with the DR Congo squad for the African Cup Of Nations

Been playing almost ever game and is far better than the 2 loan CB. Next.


02 Jan 2013 12:34:35
Do you homework first. Zola gave him a five year contract at the start of the season.


Looks a top prospect and is happy, 0% chance going out anywhere


They can have Neuton


If Peterborough have 5 million+ to spend feel free, he had scouts from Arsenal and Man United watching recently, I'm sure they can fend them off...


As has been stated above: he signed a new 5 year deal in the summer and has started pretty much every game since October. He won't be leaving.


Seriously? He's only 18 and a regular for us. He will be Premier League star but for now he's staying with us. Wouldn't move to any Championship team... but Peterborough? Ha......

Why bad news his always been nothing short of brillant for the dons ! would you prefer ryan lowe cause he needs to go along with jabo ibehre


Izale mcleod joining would be great he hasn't officially signed yet though


"
Bad news guys izale McLeod move to mk dons is almost complete (source: sly spurts) it will probably be announced fairly soon"

Oh great! That's all we need. Why can't we look beyond this donkey who has balance issues (always falling over) and get in somebody else? We ain't got a chance of promotion anyway, bringing in Ifall McCrap is not going to help. We need more imagination.


Jabo out McLeod in; likely to be announced in the next couple of days.

in
nani on loan
bentley on loan
donovan on loan

Baines out rubbish


Absolute rubbish, Baines 13.5 million, yeah right that will buy one sideburn.

QPR have offered 4 million and it was rejected

Barkley, there is no midfield cover so no chance.

Nani, quoted at 18 million and Ferguson has said he is not leaving

Bentley, FFS you are kidding

Donovan, maybe but doubtful


I believe you can ony loan 2 players between premiership clubs. Have QPR have run out of loans?

Bury fans are ready to make peace with Alan Knill
many have lost faith in blackwell and want knill back

Haha not a chance he would be 'welcomed' back to gigg.


Alan Knill is to be announced as Blackwells number 2 when Shirtliff leaves next week. My source says Shirty will join a Yorkshire club.


I hope this is true blackwell is a piece OF .... but he is still going to be incharge even if we get relegateded fenton said that this is a long term appointment.


Blackwell has done nothing for us would be happy to see knill as number 1 best manager we have had in years.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 09:58:14
Richard Dunne linked with a move to Derby County to give them a little more experience, they are also signing 20 year-old Australian Goalkeeper Matt Ryan

The goalkeeper is close to a deal. However Richard Dunne can be ruled out 100% due to wages as he has been offered 50, 000 a week by the New York Red Bulls


The goalkeeper is close to a deal which would see one of Adam Legzdins or Frank Fielding depart along with Saul Deeney and Ross Atkins, to help lower the wage bill.

Richard Dunne can be ruled out 100% as he has been offered 50, 000 a week () by the New York Red Bulls. Derby's highest paid player is on no more than 15, 000.

02 Jan 2013 09:33:57
Cardiff City are set to sign these players in the next few days:
Marvin Sordell from Bolton - £2 million
John Brayford from Derby - £1.5 million
Danny Graham from Swansea - £3 million

Do we need these players?--Brayford maybe yes, sordell maybe at a push....but graham i dont think city fans would appreciate a jack reject.....


Y buy 2 more strikers


The third signing is Matty Phillips of Blackpool and not Graham!


Haha a jack reject. Graham is quality. He'd be too good for you lot and anyway why would he want to still be in the championship with you lot next year?


Sordell is a tidy prospect played well for team g.b cant see hin going for 2 mill when mark davies is older and rated 7 mill + and graham is a good chapionship player and is not a swans reject but wiv aspas ..villa and windlejum all coming in would like to get rid off lita graham ..and shecta and keep luke warn moore for the big games


If bids are made for John Brayford it is likely there will be follow ups from 2 or 3 premier league clubs, with West Ham being at the forefront they have been linked with the right back previously.

Anything above 1.8 million and Derby would accept. Due to the likelihood of Cardiff reaching the premier league there will be add ons associated. So the fee will probably end up around the 2 million mark.


Graham will not come to Cardiff as he can get a prem club, also MM has said as much as he will not sign him.

Sordell a good bet and if not Brayford, then Hunt from Huddesfield.


John Brayford will not be sold by Derby County for anything less than 3m. He is the best right back in the Championship.


If we could get a striker i would want charlie austin


Graham wants to stay at Swansea and would never play for Cardiff

Leicester looking at taking Spanish U21 midfielder Yago Falque on loan from Tottenham.
The 22 year old midfielder player joined Spurs from Juventus and was on loan at Southampton last year.

Poor at Southampton


You'd be better off looking at other players. He really isn't worth it.


Not sure how you could say he was poor as Southampton as he wasn't given a chance. You can't judge someone on 45 mins of football.


Fair. He looks ok.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 08:58:08
Louis Carey of Bristol City may go to yeovil on a months loan to get some first team games.

02 Jan 2013 08:56:45
Saints lead chase for jack butland, Birmingham turned down offer in summer , however chairman has commented and said to keep the club afloat they need to sell. Southampton would be a great move for butland as they can offer him first team football in PL. offer thought to be 5-6 mil. Chairman NC stated even tho saints are lower end of PL, mass money available from owner (family) R.i.p ML in jan if need be. Also on radar is a highly rated CB . Fingers crossed for SFC and the city which is under going a major rebuild over the next 5+ years starting in ocean village :-))

Davide Astori one of the major signings saints can attract in FM2013 - this more likely comes from someone who plays the game - would love to see a big name defender coming to Saint Marys but doubt it will be him


It's been linked by several English and Italian papers. I mean yes it seems unlikely but not sure it came from someone playing a game.


Seems unlikely but then I thought that about Ramirez!

Taken from pompey news! Jornal do Brasil understand that the former Brasilian superstar Rivaldo is supposedly close to signing a deal with League 1 outfit Portsmouth. Rivaldo, who won the World Cup with Brasil in 2002 and countless awards for his ability has scored nearly 400 goals in all competitions and still believes he could do a job in football at the age of 40. Rivaldo has recently held trials at Charlton Athletic, Peterborough Utd and even Crystal Palace but that came to no avail. Talks about Rivaldo joining League 1 side Portsmouth surfaced the internet on Christmas Eve when numerous reports broke out that Portsmouth's top scorer Izale McLeod had struck a deal with a rival club, On Dec' 31st this came to reality, McLeod left the club by mutual consent but the club acted quickly by signing David Connolly on a free transfer. So come January 1st Rivaldo still hasn't signed, But we understand that he is training with the club along with fellow free agents Noe Pamarot and Danny Webber. Rivaldo, Danny and Noe seem very keen to link up with the club regardless of the position the club are in on and off the pitch. We also understand that 7 first team Portsmouth players are set to leave the club; the players who are on month to month deals can leave mid January. Guy Whittingham and Andy Awford have stated that they have several replacements should an overhaul happen at the club once again but could the Brasilian superstar lead the front line for Portsmouth?

As a Pompey fan, all I can say is that the club is as mad as a box of frogs so why not welcome a 40 year old Brazillian legend to the party! Nothing surprises me anymore!


Yes and I heard that Tostao, Rivalihno, Zico and Dunga had their boots with them too! Joke post!


Yeah, im sure hell be great for the three minutes per games that he is fit enough to play


The 40 year old Rivaldo having a trial at Peterborough? Strange coincidence, I heard it was Socrates.

Brighton news.buckley is heading to southamton. Cms to Aston villa. Barnes to millwall with trotter coming to brighton . Hoskins to barnsley. Frimpong coming in on loan with option to buy at end of season. Charlie Austin coming in for £3m

Charlie austin is one of the leagues top goalscorers, 3 million is a lot underrated if they got 7 million for rodriguez to southamptom in the summer. I am sure somebody will have to pay alot more for him


Haha, never gunna happen trotter or Austin


Funny that, because there is no mention of these players going to the clubs you mention on the rest of this rumour website. Maybe you should post your rumour on the Southampton, Aston Villa, Norwich and Milwall rumour pages for some continuity to help your wind up to be more convincing.


Trotter good call


Millwall's Trotter isn't going another team in the championships


All incorrect!


Hasnt Frimpong recently gone on loan to Charlton ??


All these "done deals", and no one has yet to make an approach for any Brighton player?


Frimpong has just signed a new contract at Arsenal and has gone out on loan to get his fitness back.

After Derby County's last game against Middlesborough , Nigel Clough must have seen something in one of Middlesborough's
substitutes called Ishmael Miller who set up Middlesborough's 90th Minute Goal.
Because now Nigel Clough wants to sign Ishmael Miller for Derby County.(Probably so he can link up with Theo.R , J.Ward or C.Sammon)

Miller is on loan from forest and you cant play for more than 2 teams in any 1 season


Derby cannot afford Miller to begin with and looking at derby's squad they already have too many strikers with only one outstanding injury.

Sammon (6 goals) Tyson (5) Robinson (9) Ward (5) Jacobs (2) Bennet Doyle

It is supposedly a done deal for Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt to move to Norwich City this transfer window.

Have to meny midfilders already how cant get in the first team fox e bennett surmam ect .....


Some of those players will move on surman etc


This was said to be done in January 2012. However it didn't come true and we got Howson. Howson, Johnson and Tettey is all we need for that position. Also there is Fox. Therefore Bridcutt will not be joining.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 08:15:30
Michael Dawson has been linked with moves to either
QPR or Liverpool for fees of around 5 Million.
.I Personally think he would do better at Liverpool seeing as QPR are in a relagation scrap.

Considering spurs turned down 9 mill from qpr in july sounds like bs to me


We were offered 9m for him in the summer. Why would we accept 5m?


 

 

02 Jan 2013 08:07:48
Been told that Sheffield United are looking at a few loan signings as there's no money available to buy players. They may NOT get them all but they are trying!

1. Nick Powell ( Man U )
2. Korey Smith ( Norwich )
3. Garry Monk ( Swansea )
4. Leroy Lita (Swansea)

Smith maybe, maybe Powell too but that is only cos Whisky Nose has a soft spot for the Blades; however it is more likely that Powell will go to a Championship side. Monk will probably go to someone like Ipswich or another Championship struggling side. Lita again is a great Championship player, so I doub't he'd drop to League 1.

IJA


There's some good free going


Doubt if any club other than Peterborough will get any Man U loans. Diddums helping his brat!


Bi way will Monk be leaving Swansea, in August it was possible. Now no chance.


 

 

02 Jan 2013 08:07:25
Sean O'Driscoll was in the Crowd at the New Den Yesterday i doubt he was watching us must be looking to take over at Bristol

02 Jan 2013 12:05:53
hope so


No he wasn't in the crowd...


 

 

02 Jan 2013 07:20:04
Hull City and Watford will fight it out for the signature of Fraizer Campbell, who has only six months left on his contract.

Watford have at 4 much better forwards


Possible Djourou transfer will be made more likely due to him meeting up with Almunia


Watford dont need an over-rated striker thanks


Hopefully Watford win this battle, as I don't want to see Campbell or his father back at the KC. Over rated Championship level striker. And wew're heading for the PL so he is of no use to us.


This would be a very interesting signing for us WFC he is a good player and would fit in with our style


Lets hope watford get him


Watford won't want him.


He'll not be going to either club


Watford already have at least 4 better strikers he's over rated we don't want him


Completley true so we can let him rot in our reserves which play once a month.

hearing rumours that Ryan McGowan of Hearts is bound for Villa. Also being chased by Millwall, however the lure of playing English Premier League is too big a carrot to pass up.

More like shane mcgowan


Lure of the premiership for all of 5 months!


Hearts have accepted a bid of 400.000 from team in china, will he go?


 

 

02 Jan 2013 04:57:11
Reading have renewed their summer interest in Melbourne Hearts Aziz Behich following the left backs impressive club performance which have lead to him being capped by Australia.

Good prospect seem him a few times in the a leauge


 

 

02 Jan 2013 02:51:10
ok edd in the EPL who do you think will be the biggest spenders and like sir alex said there might be 1 big transfer who do you think will sign a majour player ie meaning recognition im not just talking about david villa im talking about in general {Ed002's Note - Chelsea will likely spend the most.}

 

 

02 Jan 2013 02:51:05
Mackie is worth more then 2.2 mill and will not be leaving the hoops. Harry has him in his plans and with Zamora still out will need to utilise him till the end of the season.

 

 

02 Jan 2013 02:43:17
Hoarau and Holtby are on their way to Everton. Deals to be done by next week.

 

 

02 Jan 2013 02:24:03
Norwich looking to potentially bring in Jelle Vossen for £4-5 mil

Thats a deal worth trying to do!


02 Jan 2013 09:25:11
Now this is a rumour I like the sound of, young with a good goal scoring record, just not sure we will get him for this kind of


Yes! I've heard this a lot. He could be the difference between a relegation battle and a comfortable mid table finish.


Hope so. Great player and young too. Worth the money at 4-5m and more. Would be a good investment for Norwich. Is this guy quick though? We need someone with a bit of gas. I wonder if there is any chance of getting Obafemi Martins at Levante? Surely Hughton must know him from both Newcastle and Birmingham days. Oba is proper rapid plus he knows the prem. Too much Fifa 2013 for me (I know). However there are rumours circulating that he is in talks with WBA so why not with Norwich too?


Heard this to.. could be something in it me thinks


Certainly would be worth having a go the guy is class. Wouldn't be surprised if theres quite a few other clubs in for him


 

 

02 Jan 2013 02:09:49
Stevenage FC manager Gary Smith will be given 5 more games to turn things around before he is sacked.

 

 

02 Jan 2013 01:24:46
Plymouth left back Onismor Bhasera is wanted by league one side Walsall, Bhasera is out of contract in the summer and is attracting interest from elsewhere, Shrewsbury and Northampton are other clubs being linked with the Zimbabwean

Northampton have, without doubt, the best left back in FL2 (Joe Widdowson) so there's no reason we would be interested.


We only have widds tho need another out and out left bk so wouldn't be a bad move


 

 

02 Jan 2013 01:08:37
andy king going sunderland 4m

Id be very suprised, not sure Pearson is selling anyone, hes looking to strengthen, he may go if we dont get promoted at end of the season but i doubt he'l go in jan!

Devon Fox


I, m a Leicester fan and an Andy King fan but you have to be honest, we have a glut of midfielders at the minute and 4 mil for Kingy, wether you like it or not is good business, if this is true it would, nt be so bad.


02 Jan 2013 17:32:11
king has been here for 8 years, and we are close to sunderlands standard, why would he leave now?


 

 

02 Jan 2013 01:03:57
Billy Sharp not signing for Forest in the Jan window, he and Saints want to asses everything at the end of the season.

A fee was agreed in the loan so saints will have no choice but to sell if forest meet the sum... its in my understanding the owners have spoke to sharp aleady about making it permanent


Think Billy will be having second thoughts about Forest full stop now that his mentor has had the boot (crazy decision IMO) From a DRFC fan.


02 Jan 2013 12:23:19
With his mentor Sean O'Driscoll gone from Forest, I cant see Billy signing for Forest at the end of his loan, will probably stay at Saints to see what developes


 

 

02 Jan 2013 00:57:46
K. Doyle to replace Ba at NUFC. Deal around 3M.

02 Jan 2013 12:46:51
As a sunderland fan that would be hilarious


 

 

02 Jan 2013 00:16:59
Whilst he is rumoured to be in talks with a Chinese club, current Australian international and Hearts defender Ryan McGowan is also being chased by Aston Villa. Villa are looking to remedy what has been a leaky defence so far this season.

Lambert ruled out any panic buys in this window though


 

 

02 Jan 2013 00:10:21
Danny Graham is to see out his contract at Swansea City, thus not leaving in January

His contract doesn't expire at the end of the season.

Watford transfers
ins
Emmanuel Agyemang badu - Udinese(loan)
Wojciech Pawlowski - Udinese (loan)
Thomas heurtaux - Udinese (loan)
John Carew - (FREE)
Yohan Djourou (Free) - Arsenal

outs
neuton-sent back -Udinese
Jean alain Fanonche-sent back -Udinese
steve beleck -sent back -Udinese
Chris Iwelumo-notts county
matt whichelow-free
Carl Dickinson-free
joe garner-carlise
ross jenkins-loan (not sure who to though)

Your going to be the new Arsenal are you ? not many british players there is there ? didnt work for Arsensl and wont work for you lol, LTFC


That would be good for our push but john crew to old we have deeney


Why would we send neuton back, he's done alright, no way would we go for carew


Pawlowski is the only possible of the ins, as for foreigners for Arsenal, presumably you're referring to the old team likes of "invincibles"..? pretty sure that worked alright


LTFC....what does that abbreviation mean? I've looked at every club in the football league and not managed to find one with those initials.


Iwelumo not goin bak to notts because notts are in financial crisis. anyway i wouldn't want him bak because he hasnt done anything whilst he was there.


Iwelumo won't be coming to Notts, apart from his first game (he got 1 assist) he has failed to deliver. KC won't be signing him


Might not work; but we'll enjoy the ride. At least the wheels only just didn't come off our financial wagon and we aren't playing pub football.


Djourou isn't coming to Watford and I doubt the management would even be interested in Carew.
Udinese loanees are a distinct possibility but only if some return to Italy as you have said.


Forget Djourou as he is off to Hannover. Carew too old, but the other 3 are possibilities


Didn't work for Arsenal? I'd say consistent top 4 in the best league in the world is pretty outstanding...


'LTFC....what does that abbreviation mean? I've looked at every club in the football league and not managed to find one with those initials' haha brilliant


In what way did Arsenal's foreign influence not work? They've won 3 Premier Leagues, 4 FA Cups, 4 Community Shields and got to a Champions League final.


Notts arnt in a financial crisis you person


 

 

02 Jan 2013 00:03:26

Sheffield United are tracking Cheltenham winger Jermaine McGlashan.

 

 

01 Jan 2013 23:49:59
Cheltenham manager Mark Yates is set to strengthen his attacking options by bringing in Birmingham City striker Akwasi Asante on loan.

He's out long term with a bad hamstring injury


 

 

01 Jan 2013 23:39:29
Yeovil manager Gary Johnson will look to fend off interest for in form Czech 'keeper Marek Stech during the January window from a host of Championship clubs, with Ipswich, Bristol City and Charlton amongst others, interested in the 6"3' stopper.

Yeah he is league ones best shot stopper, just needs to learn how to kick


Umm do you regualry watch the yeovil games them? Stech, yesterday basically kicked end to end and madden nearly scored, last season against huddersfield he nearly scored from a clearance.


Charlton have Hamer who is one of the best keeper's in the Champ. Behind him we have another quality back up in Button. So no I can't see Charlton being interested sorry.


He also set up the Gav wonder goal with a pin-point kick against Oldham...


 

 

01 Jan 2013 23:14:07
Manchester City are looking into PSG defender Sakho and are considering a swap deal, Sakho for Lescott.

 

 

01 Jan 2013 23:33:42
Grimsby right back Bradley Wood is a target for Yeovil manager Gary Johnson if a deal cannot be reached to bring Joe Edwards back to the club.

 

 

01 Jan 2013 23:23:09
Yeovil to take a chance on highly rated Forest Green Rovers pair James Norwood and Ed Asafu-Adjaye, with both joining the club on trial in the coming weeks with a view to permanent transfers.

I don't think this will happen FGR are bigger payers that YTFC and will be in lg2 next year


Bigger payers? na.
