The rumours about Uraguay defender Martin Careres moving to Arsenal or any other club are absurd as Martin wants 2 stay in Spain and has said so in the press which has come on the Internet. Expect Arsene Wenger 2 move 4 a defender maybe Steven Taylor that is why Taylor as of yet hasen't signed a new contract with NUfc he's waiting 4 Jan 2 wait and see if Arsenal or LFC make a move 4 him, and also he would be much cheaper then Micah.
Harry Kewell will be making a move to the Madejski. Coppell needs someone who can create things in the midfield and Kewell who is out of favour at Liverpool fits the bill. He will most likely play him in a central role replacing the crappy James Harper. This will be a 5 Million pound move.
Also Coppell is looking to get Andy Van Der Myde from Everton for 1.5 Mil, a good player who never seems to get a game. This will sort of the Oster/Little problem, Andy is better than Oster and can give some competition to Little on the right.
These are almost certain, wait for the announcement in January.
Also some possible ins:
–Jean Il Makoun (5 Mil) – Gunnarson is crap
–Senderos (loan) or Breno (2 Mil)
More news surrounding Arsenal and the January transfer window is that Wenger will look to ofload Gilberto to Juve £6 million and allow Matty Flamini to take over full time in the holding role in midfield.
this frees up Fabregas, Rosicky and Hleb to creat knowing they hav a reliable backup un place.
the boy on trial Mputu is discussing a contract after impressing over the last month.
Lehmanns departure will also lead to Fabianski moving up to number two gk. he will hav the number one shirt by Christmas next year.
Arsenal will buy karim benzema and rafeal Van Der Vaart in January with Gilberto moving to Juve.
an d Arsene will try to get modric and thuram on loan
Sissoko Juve £11 mill
Carson Aston Villa £9 mill
Riise Newcastle £8 mill
Sammy Lee as coach
Garay Racing £10 mill
Lahm Bayern £11 mill
Just been at the Hilton in Leeds City centre and who do I see coming down the escalater together non other than John Oster with Dennis.
Oster would be a great signing. Looks like he's not wanted by Coppell and is on his way North.
He's a boyhood LUFC fan.
Marching on together.
Jermaine Beckford set for a move to West Bromwich in January in a swap deal with zoltan gera, Tottenham to make a swoop for ruud van nistelrooy.
Victor Anichebe is not for sale Neither is James Vaughan Moyes feels that they have more potential than said ex – Everton youngster (Rooney). However James McFadden will be for up for transfer, as he has had too many chances to shine for Everton. He is ourfifth choice forward and will be sold to the highest bidder, probably Celtic, for around £5–6 million. jonny
Rangers are pondering a loan move in January for Ghaly as Faye will be sent back to Charlton. They are also considering hi–Jacking Wilhelmsson from Bolton's graspe at the end of the season when his loan move finishes. Thats only going to happen if the imminent loan move for Park Ji–sung in January falls through
Expect the Hammers to Bring in a new left–back as McCarthey is liely to go to a Scottish team most likely Rangers. the Hammers look set to sign Nicky Shorey to replace him.
Also expect a bid from the irons for Derby's Barnes for between 3–5 mill
Celtic F. C
Henrik Larsson will make a suprise return to Celtic in the January Transfer window. He will sign on loan for 10 weeks in a similar deal which he had with Man United last year.
Larry kingston from Hearts to Birmingham in the transfer window for £2.6 million (his brother plays for them already) he will be joined by James Mcfadden and barry Ferguson from Rangers for £2.2 million
Liverpool will be busy in the January sales mostly with defenders a centre back Garay a right back which is bernard mendy in January in Summer Sami Nasri, vincent kompany hopefully Sergio Ramos further forward a centre forward Amauri or Villa and cover for attacking midfield possibly Spanish and another winger possibly Joaquin and an assortment of youngsters Africa, the AMERICAS AND SOME LOCALS

Harry Kewell will get himself a new contract.
At Anfield, Rafa is going nowhere, the owners realise that would be a huge mistake. Mutual apologies have taken place and things smoothed over when H&G come over in December.
Not much activity expected in January – will announce two signings only, one being a permanent deal for Masch and the other a Spanish CB. Only major departure maybe Sissoko if FC Barcelona can agree a deal.
However, there will be a lot of behind–scenes discussions re. Summer with agreements on several departures and arrivals.
Carson (Villa – £9 million)
Riise (Villa – £5 million)
Kuyt (PSV – £8 million)
Sissoko (Barcelona – £10 million + )
Villa (Valencia – £12 million + Crouch)
Mascherano (permanent – balance of £12 million agreed back in January 2007)
Samir El Nasri (Marseille – £15 million first option agreed with Cisse sale)
To the guy who said that Liverpool will get Defoe on a free because his contract is up soon, well Defoe has a year and a half left on his contract but will be leaving in January if he does not sign, I personally think he will want to stay in London area so maybe the Hammers Chelsea or even Arsenal might get him on the cheap for about 7/8 million in January

Emre £5 million– Villareal
Stephen Carr £1.5 million– Bolton

Three championship and one Scottish Premier League club have enquired about taking Liverpool's Nabil El Zahr on loan. I do not know who they are yet but I am nearly certain one is Preston. Also, Danny Murphy is interesting Celtic and Sunderland. I have also heard that Man. City will sign Anelka and Gudjohnson in January. I cannot confirm the last one, I am only in the know about Liverpool, and Danny Murphy who has many friends at the club.
The takeover of Coventry City by sisu will be announced prior to kickoff on Saturday and they will sign Wayne Routledge onloan with view 2 a permanent move January
Mcfadden £5 million
Steven Fletcher £2.5 million
Darren Fletcher loan
David Murphy £2 million
Robbie Keane £6 million
bobo Balde free Sunderland
Derek riorden £1.5 million West Bromwich
maciej Zurawski £1 million Reading
Shunsuke Nakamura £7.5 million Tottenham
teddy bjarnason loan vitesse arnhem
Chelsea and Man United are not going to go for Anelka. Man United will splash out on Berbatov, allowing Ramos to bring in his own strike force possibly Fabiano and Chelsea will push for Vagner Love leaving City and Newcastle to fight over Anelka. Newcastle are set push Viduka to his usual bit part role, very familiar right now because of fitness and would like Anelka to play on the left of attack with Martins on the right and ANOTHER in the middle. This maybe Smith but as he has become a little rusty in his old role this could be Heskey. This will then become an Anelka–Heskey–Owen strike force with Martins filling in.
Newcastle are also going to go for the Porto CH Bruno Alves and Paris St. Germain defender Sylvain Armand.
ARSENAL will sign samri Nasri, menez and a young defender called Etto he will be come in when senderror (Senderos) leaves.
CHELSEA will sign modric, Ronaldinho and Anelka. leaving will be Lampard, Drogba and Joe Cole or shaun Wright–Phillips
MAN you will sign Ibrahimovic, kompanyand and benzema
LIVERPOOL will sign eto'o and cicinho
Not a rumour fact Moyes is going to be offered the Scotland job
Sheff United to sign
Bardsley– £1 million
stelios– £1 million
campo or cattermole on loan
to revive their automatic promotion chances
These are factual transfer movements at Villa Park in January (not stuff pinched from other sites).
In's: Nicolae Dica (£4.5 million), Jose Bosingwa (£7. £25 million)
Peter Crouch (£9.5 million) and confirmation of Carson deal, which will be for £8 million – not the £10 million being touted about. Leaving VP will be Maloney (Celtic £1.75 million) which is a shame, Harewood (Charlton or Palace £2.5 million) and Sorensen (Boro £1 million). Osbourne will be allowed to go to Wolves on loan as part of an understanding that Villa get first dibs on Michael Kightly, who will be allowed to leave if Wolves do not get promotion. Finally, Laursen will sign a new contract by the end of the month, but Super Olly Mellberg will move to Roma (not Juve) in the Summer. The one and only Bodymoor Mole.
Just spoken to a friend who works at the walkers. Ebanks Blake, Nalis, Halmosi have all arrived at the walkers to discus personal terms after becoming upset by the Plymouth's boards disinterest in keeping holloway.
The fees will be
1.5 million, 500 k, £2 million,
