Capaldi to have medical at acadamy of light tomorrow (Tuesday) and that will complete the spending for Keano this season and Keane has a few ideas for if they get promoted in the summer they are.
Ole Gunnar (Manchester United) 500k
Alan Smith (Manchester United) Season Long Loan
Jermaine Aliadiare (Arsenal) 1.5m
This is as Keane sees Strikers Connelly and Stern John as squad players in the prem if they get there.
and they will also invest in 2 centre back and a right and left back due to Jonny Evans and Danny Simpson returning to Manchester in the summer and Varga And Cunningham being to old for top flight football.
I am not any relation to anyone working at SOL an these are just rumors doing the rounds on the terraces and in the pubs.
This could well be out by the time this is printed, but Cork City's Alan Bennett will sign for Reading tomorrow (Tuesday after the clubs finally agreed a fee for the 25 year old centre back.
Reading also hope to tie up the signing of Wolves' 18 year old right back Mark Little for £1.2m.
Rangers FC rumours - Alan Gow will sign by the end of the week for around 200k, Rangers will also try and sign Scott Mcdonald from Motherwell seen as how Mcdonalds father is a huge Rangers fan and also due to the fact that Mcdonald is a reliable goalscorer for a pretty poor team .
Celtic FC rumours - Strachan will have one last bid of 4. 5 million pounds for both Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson, these are likely to be accepted by the Hibernian board, Strachan will also surprisingly move for Loko Moscows Garry Oconnor in a 1.7 million pounds deal,
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is set to leave Charlton for Levante as they are the only team to make an offer and Pardew is desperate to offload him.
This will mean Charlton purchasing 2 new strikers before the deadline. 1 will Be Collins John who will complete a £3.5 million move on Tuesday the other will most likely be Nathan Tyson or Antonio Tavano (loan)
Dietmar Hamman may leave Man City in the summer for Bayern Munich or Hamburg. Portsmouth are also keen.
Robbie Keane won't be joining Celtic in a Fizzy Pop league, because he wants to play in the Premiership. He will be staying at Spurs. Also Spurs will be signing Qpr left wing Paul Cook.
I have it on good authority that Martin O'Niell is trying to bring in Wesley Sneijder from Ajax and Phillipe Lahm from Bayern Munich for £15M before the window closes on Wednesday.
Everton are to seal the deal for Billy Jones on deadline day for a reported $1.5 million. This will see the end of pistones Everton career as he will make his awaited return to Italy with Lecce. From David Moyers

It was earlier reported that this morning Freddy Adu was spotted at the Aston Villa training ground. Martin O'Neill is looking to add to his squad and see's the american youngster as a perfect bargain at £6 million. Porstmouth are also linked with the up and coming superstar.
MAN UTD TRANSFER
Sources in Spain are claiming that Manchester United and Chelsea have bid for Fernando Torres. however these bids have been put on hold due to atleticos reluctance to sell in jan. Torres himslef has said today that if atletico don't make the champions league he will move to England. Man Utd are his prefererd destination. also when England play Spain at old trafford in a couple of weeks, Man Utd will roll out the red carpet in a attempt to seal his descision. ie they will show him the facilities trophy room and carrington training ground. expect a deal of £22 million up front and up to £8 milllion dependant on performance. however a friend of mine who is a Spanish agent for smaller Spanish clubs has said rumours are that atletico will have a first option on Torres should he not settle at old trafford, for a set price
Chelsea will then turn their attention to David Villa of valencia. Liverpool fans face it you don't have the Finnancial muscle for Villa even if the takeover is complete (Chelsea were quoted £100 mil, why would it be £25 for Liverpool cmon!) . he will cost £30 million, and valencia want schechenko in the deal. this total cost will be around £50 given shevas dramatic value drop due to his form.
Brian Laws is intrested in Ketteringtowns centre forward Luke Oldridge dubbed the new Peter Crouch. Expect the youngster to move for 20k.
Also Matt Sparrow form Scuni
Nicky Feathestone from Hull
Matthew Upson to Villa for 5. 5 million plus Liam Ridgewell in opposite direction, also Birmingham hoping to sign Billy Sharp for 2.7 million
LFC will not be signing Alves in the summer. Barca are in pole position to sign him and the player has agreed according to reports in Spain. He is top of Rijkaard's list. Simao is no longer wanted by Rafa as he has made negative remarks about LFC. Expect younger players in the summer. Torres is a done deal for Man Utd. Villa is 50/ 50. Rafa feels he could be another Morientes. Crouch will be sold in the summer. Mascherano will be a permanent signing in the summer. FIFA will allow a loan deal by tomorrow. DIC takeover will be completed on 15th Feb.
Reading have given up on Greg Halford after Colchester held the club to ransom for a player who is free in the summer.
Reading have now turned their attention to Michael Dubbery of Stoke City, who is again free in the summer and is expected to sign for the Royals on Tuesday for £450,000.
Mark Little is also expected to sign for Reading for £1.2m but will be loaned back to Wolves for the remainder of the season.
I am heading to old trafford on Wednesday to watch them against Watford and the rumours around old trafford is that they are set to unveil owen Hargreaves for just under 20million as it is deadline day
Gareth Bale will join Man Utd before the end of the transfer window. The transfer will take place on Wednesday, and he will be loaned back to Southampton for the rest of the season. The reason this transfer hasn't happened yet is that for him to transfer, and then go back on loan to Southampton, he would have to wait until after the transfer window for this to happen e.g. if he signed on the 1st January, he would have waited all month before been sent back. I've heard this from a friend of David May (ex-United player) and he hasn't let me down before.
In (I think) :
Owen Hargreeves £19 Mil
Garath Bale £10 (loaned back to Southampton)
Out (I think)
Alan Smith (loan - Likely Newcastle or Everton)
John O'Shea £5 Mil (likely Newcastle)
Leicester FC RUMOURS
It has been stipulated that Leicester are going to bring some experience to help Leicester's stuggling strike force. and it will be former forest star Peire Van Hoojodonk, who will move after he hands in a transfer request Tuesday dinner time.
Pompey 2 sign swp in next few days, I know as I have contacts
I was right and Prutton will sign for Forest before deadline as will Yates plus Jarvis and Chambers. Dan the man
If Nicholas Bendtner returns to Arsenal and Birmingham are promoted which is likely - Steve Bruce will add to his strikeforce of Jerome, Vine, McSheffrey and Campbell by signing out of favour Fulham striker Collins John. Forsell or Campbell may leave Birmingham in the summer. Bruce is also interested in Marlon King but it is likely he will stay at Watford.
Picked up a great rumour today - a colleague working for the department of culture media&sport told me that whilst it is common knowledge that West Ham want the olympic stadium after the games - what is not yet common knowledge is that it will be a ground share - with Spurs!
WHFC to sign Darren Bent and Matty Upson for a combined price of £15mill. As well as that Curbs will attempt to sign Michael Owen from Newcastle but if he doesn't succeed he will try and lure Aliadiere to Upton Park
THFC to sign Bellamy with Defoe going in the other direction in a straight swap
Peter Crouch was the suspect of a move to Tottenham but he rejected it (Liverpool did accept an undisclosed fee)
AFC will sign a Brazilian superstar in the Summer, A 15 year old centre forward from a lower league team in the Brazilian league. Apparently he is the next Ronaldinho.
