Evening all, me again with a few transfers for the Summer from Scotland. I work for a major Scottish daily newspaper, but I am not going to pretend I am a journo or anything like that. I merely work in the editing department. Anyway heres the news for the January transfer window. Celtic will be looking for more of a spark in the middle of the park, mainly due to the fitness of Donati and the likelihood of suspensions/injury to Scott Brown/Aiden McGeady. James McFadden will be joining in January, with Moyes finally pandering to his desire for more first team football. He is seem as ample cover for both wings, and attacking through the middle. Gravesen will be used as a makeweight in this deal, although money will also be changing hands, probably around 1.5 to £2 million. Also look for Balde to leave permanently to Sunderland as Keane looks to bolster an inexperienced defense. Riordan will be going nowhere in January, although a Summer move is not off the cards, if Strachan gets his main target (Robbie Keane if anyones interested). Rangers are not looking to add dramatically to the squad in the window, although there may be an addition to the front line if Celtic are more than 6 points ahead come Christmas. Look for Smith to add a few youngsters to the ranks, details at the moment are sketchy although Reynolds of Motherwell has been touted. There is also talk of Fletcher and Murphy of Hibernian being looked at from Govan, although Hibernian are unwilling to sell. The Murphy transfer is hinged on Stevie Smiths long term battle with a hip injury, and Fletchers transfer on the imminent departure of Kris Boyd. Boyd is becoming disillusioned by the lack of first team opportunity, and at being played as a lone frontman. Summer news does not come bigger than this one, although I am aware it's in the open already. Kenny Miller has already been lined up to join Rangers in the Summer, as he has not settled to life back in England, and wants to prove Celtic wrong. Fee is in the region of 4 Million of Derby stay up, three if they are relegated. Davies sees this as a no–brainer, as he will break even on Miller, and he may provide the goals to keep Derny up. Also expect major developments from Parkhead in the Summer, as the profits are soaring at the moment due to the decreased wage bill. Keane, as mentioned, is number 1 target although there are a few players being looked at, some very big. Names as big as Michael Owen and Shaun Wright Philips are being touted, although the wages will have to be negotiated down dramatically. Peter Lawell is looking to abolish the wage cap at Parkhead, although the board as a whole are against it. Anyway I'll be back soon with the rest od the Scottish news. Cheers
I know for a fact that Everton will sign Foluwasha Shola Ameobi for £8 million in January as AJ will leave for Tottenham. Yak + Shola upfront happy days
With Van de Sar wanting to retire the reds will be looking to bring in new blood to defend the Manchester door. in these past four months. scouts have been seen at the Azteca stadium. overlooking the aguilas keeper. (Guillermo Ochoa)
rumor has it the Red Devils offered £10 million euros/dollars for the young mexican. although ochoa commented that he will not go on loan since he will not "give away his work".
Rafa is hot on the heels of Paris St. Germain defender Mamadou Sakho (dubbed by many to be the second coming of Lilian Thuram) and will buy him for 3.8 million pounds at the break for Liverpool.
Big changes underway at Fulham. They are clearing a few out but nobody is sure who yet except for Morris Volz and Lee Cook, who are sure to be gone. A lot of jobs are not safe. Coming in the winter transfer window will be American/Irish defender Michael Parkhurst, Honduran Goal Keeper Noel Valladares, Wayne Hennessey of Wolverhampton and Patrick Kisnorbo of Leicester City.
Celtic will part company with WGS in the next 72 hours. No news yet if they have a replacement already lined up.
one name mentioned was Dundee United Manager Levien. Tony Mowbray could also be a option
Preston North End rumours
after pugh leaving for Stoke until January Preston will let him go for 1,000,000. if Stoke decide to buy him Preston will buy the following players after a boost of money being allowed to spent we will get 3,000,000 + £1 million for pugh jon macken will sign for 500,000 in January David vaughen will sign for us from Crewe for 300,000 if Plymouth decide not to buy Easter then expect a offer from us for him David Nugent could make a suprise move on loan in January if he fails to break into the first team but this is unlikely because the African nations are on in January for six weeks so they will neeed nigent as kanu, Utaka, benjani will be away. ALSO IF SIMPSON REFUSES TO GET A WINNING RYTHEM THEN Preston have already talken to jewell and he has agreed to sign for Preston as they are nearby to his home in Manchester. pne Scott
