NOTTS COUNTY Rumours
Bristol City are desperate to sign Dan Martin from County. County are not likely to sell the important midfielder, although a big fee may tempt them.
McGugan and Wes Morgan fought at a training session in the past week. Morgan walked into the Skyroom pub in Nottingham sporting stitches above his eye and told a barman there, my mate, the story. I am suprised to hear that the young man gave the colossal defender such a run for his money. it is said that McGugan has his sights set on the Championship and is not interested in fighting for promotion with Forest. Stoke City have expressed their interest in the player.
Rangers to sign Giovanni Van Bronchorst back from Feyenoord. Expect to see Alan Smith to be constantly linked from Newcastle, but will only join the Royal Blues if Rangers part with McGregor or Cuellar in a swap deal.
Rangers will also be making a bid for Darren Fletcher as he's fallen down the pecking order at Man United. And with United set to add more midfielders to their squad, he will be looking for a new club to get first team football and Rangers fit the bill.
Rangers big signing of the Summer will be Liverpool's Dirk Kuyt. The bulk of the transfer warchest will be spent on the forward, with a figure of £9 million being banded around.
Stoke want to bring Bruno Cheyrou back to the Premier League from Rennes if they gain promotion to the Premier League.
Portsmouth are keen to sign Ledley King from Tottenham to replace the Spain bound Sol Campbell in the Summer.
Rumour from inside source. Macjester United will bid £38 million for Leo Messi who is keen about a move to Old Trafford they will also sign Dutch full back Emmanuelson for £11 million and Miguel Veloso from Sporting Lisbon for £12 million United will then turn there attention to Zlatan Ibrahimovic for £27 million
No real meat to it but shay given has sold his house in the north east. pure speculation but given to Celtic to replace Boruc who could be Premier League bound.
Manchester City have drawn up a shortlist of managers to replace Sven with Sam Allardyce at the top of the list. Allardyce will then be given £40 million to spend with the following players definitely coming In:
– Lubos Kalouda 300 k – promising Czech right winger
– Pablo Piatti 110 k – promising Argentine right winger who plays in the same team as Veron and Veron has recommended Manchester to Piatti after his time at Man United
– Sergio Mota £7.5 million – Wonder–kid from Sao Paolo
– Vincent Kompany one0 million – strong centre back
– Luis Jimenez £3.5 million – unsettled attacking midfielder from Ternana
– Ilsinho £9 million – attacking full back from Shakhtar Donetsk
Also they will be making a £10 million joint bid for Victor Moses and John Bostock from Crystal Palace, although Palace want at least that much for each player.
My contacts also tell me that Rafins signed for Liverpool in a done deal worth up to £9 million but Rafa will really have to work to sign Aguero who has been seen at Anfield.
All of these are not rumours, 100 percent true as my contacts are solid.
Hello I am son of keith wyness, Everton FC will be signing ebanks–blakes from Wolves only if Johnson departures also leScott will not be moving but Baines will be with Jack rodwell going out on loan David will be trying to sign a few players here are a few:
ebanks blake (1.5 million Wolves)
Malafeev Anyukov (3 million Zenit st Petersburg)
maurio zarate (Atletico 2 mil) currently on loan at Birmingham
gael Clichy (4 million Arsenal)
and more but not sure about others for definit but they are the main targets.
Arsenal concerns, with all the talk about all these foreign transfers, it may well be true but I can guanantee you that it's the last season Wenger would look for foreign talent. so he may bring in the big guns before fifa impose this sanction on foreign players. they say 6 home grown players will have to be in the squad.
he will turn to English talent soon enough, as we all well know he looks to the future quite a bit. so all these rumors about young ramsey etc. may be very true. 2011 will be the first season that this will be imposed.
i say Henry will be back to Arsenal, he would be the only player Wenger would ever re–sign to the club. he could play a bit part forward, hence adi/Eduardo and van the man can be in fab form when all fit. Bendtner out.
any 2 or three of those forwards in any formation is scary.
for me a good centre half (yes like lucio) or Mexes is what Arsenal need.
but knowing Wenger he will bring in a African unknown and make him world class.
its time for a big player/big name to control the back line. if Hleb leaves, I would expect a move for queresma. if Flamini goes, well who knows, for me I would say senna, villareal.
Liverpool Transfer rumours.
(WF) Marcelo Moreno – £8 million (will spent some time in reserve team)
(WF) David Bentley – £15 mill
(RB) Nedum Onuoha – £7 mill

Just a rumour but Real Madrid may well make a bid for John Terry. They may offer Julio Baptista and Marcelo as well as cash in a swap.
A friend of mine at Glasgow Rangers informs me that Walter Smith is desperate to re–shape his side into a more attrctive–to–watch one, like the days of Gazza and Laudo. Fed up of playing defensive counter attacking football, Smith will look to bring in players with quality and class but maintain a solid back bone.

Outgoing players are:
Ameobi (£4 million) Stoke

N'Zogbia (Player exchange) Tottenham
Rozehnal (£2 million) Palermo
Rumours from my source within St. Andrews are as follows: (All based on if we miraculously stay up apparently) Zarate will not sign permanently. We will pay another £3 million (the loan fee for this 1/2 season) to keep him on loan for another year. Sullivan has promised £15 million and whatever we an muster from sales and the following have been targetted: Nicky Hunt BOLTON £2 million, Jack Hobbs LIVERPOOL £3 million, Darren Fletcher MAN UNITED £5 million (Dependant upon MAN UNITEDs signings and player terms/wages etc), Hilario CHELSEA £2 million. The following are reportedly to be shown the door: Gary McSheffrey, Martin Taylor, Sone Aluko, Radhi Jaidi, Richard Kingson, Daniel De Ridder. Certainly not huge funds to be rasied but may fund another loan move for: Borja Oubina CELTA (if he recovers weel from injury) and Niklas Bendtner ARSENAL. We just need to stay up now. BLUE ARMY
Eren Derdiyok looks like he is on his way to Newcastle with the 19 year old impressing at Basle with every passing day. Another deal that is to be struck is NZogbia goig to Portsmouth but not in a deal that with John Utaka but Niko Kranjčar and lots of cash.
