Just read the Scott Carson to sign for Arsenal rumour. I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe there is an iota of truth in that. If he needs to get down to the emirates I will gladly drive him there free of charge - the useless sack of poo! !

Right, onto some possibilities for WBA in this window:

1) Madjid Bougherra, Rangers £5M
2) Georgios Samaras, Celtic £4M
3) John Carew, Villa Loan with view to perm deal
4) Owen Hargreaves, Man Utd, Loan
5) Vedran Corluka, Spurs, loan

Will also try to clear out:

Luke Moore, Ishmael Miller, Abdoulae Meite, Roman Bednar, Chris Wood, Leon Barnett and Joe Mattock.(6)(3)

William Hutchins is signing for Swindon, it is reported he met Danny Wilson earlier this afternoon, to discuss talks over a possible 6 month contract after he wrote to the club and applied for a trial, after training for 2-3 weeks Danny Wilson exclaimed ' this is a very rare way for footballers to breed, however if somebody has the confidence, like this young lad to write in, then we will make every effort to look at him, following this we shall decide after talking with him, a contract offer looks strong for the centre forward'.(3)(3)

My source has just told me that Julian Speroni will be sold to Fulham for 200k, and Calvin Andrew will go to Millwall for 1million. Palace will buy Daniel Sturridge for 500k, but sell Neil Danns in order to raise funds as they are close to a third administration

Crystal Palace will make a dramatic u-turn and offer George Burley a role at the club, probably as assistant manager, from a very reliable source. Also Palace will highly rated striker calvin andrew on loan until the end of the season to help stave off relegation.

Brian McDermott has said that he will not sell any first teams players in the window.

He stated that Gylfi Siggurdsson was only sold because of the clubs lack of money at the time but now, due to the stable position of the club their is nothing to worry about as a Reading fan.

West Ham were given a hands-off warning over top scorer Shane Long.

McDermott has also said that Reading are not ruling out any new signings if they can find the right player.

The probable targets are Mikele Leigertwood, currently on loan at the club from QPR could make the deal permenant and ex-academy player Charlie Austin could be taking the short trip from Swindon to Reading to help the Royals' promotion bid.

Unfortunately Austin will not be cheap, said to be around 2 Million which could put off the Royals.(5)(1)

For the person who said rhodes to norwich, i highly doubt it, we are not in the business of selling our best players. . for the people who think pilks is going to preston, likewise plus your not that much higher than us when you think about it. . also the scthorpe fan who said BWP for 350k i recon is a mile off when it is rumoured that we have offered 800k(3)(8)

Why would we go shopping outside of england theres already proven talent in the prem.theres just no point in waiting for players to settle in like meireles, poulsen, aquailini.

my opinion =CB hangeland (10m) much better than mertesaker and porven in the prem although cahill is a good option

LB enrique (6m) newcastle boy better than taiwo although not as good as coentrao but he would cost 14m+ so theres acceptions.

hazaed and elia why when theres ashley young(13m) and matt jarvis(5m) who would cost much cheaper and are just as good and who knows if elia and hazard could hangle the prem

carton cole has got talent but his injury record puts me off but thers playeres like rodellega, kevin doyle and jerome who wouldent cost for than 10m

and lets make daglish manager as he should of got the job at the beginning )

any1 disagree or agree ?

--------------------------------------
I didn't know this was football-opinions.com, why in the hell would Enrique wanna leave Newcastle for Liverpool, clubs goin in opposite directions (while you have Hodgson as manager) we are goin upwards, your going downwards.

Can people please stop with all the rubbish you saying about Andy Carroll Leaving, cos he aint, he is a geordie lad and is playing for the team he loves. money doesn't drive everyone. Youll be lucky to see 1 player leave Newcastle in January.

 04 Jan 2011 21:47:52
Alex McLeish is looking to add some attacking flair to his squad by making a £6m move for Robbie Keane and a £7.5m move for Ryan Babel. Manchester City have agreed a £27m move for Edin Dzeko. Milan Jovanovic has handed in a transfer request and is expected to move to Hamburg for £3m while another Scouse newbie Christian Poulsen could also be on his way back to Sevilla for £4m after failing to make any impression in England. Hodgson is at least admitting that Poulsen was a bad move but he has said he will stick by Paul Konchesky and Jovanovic was a Rafa transfer. Emiliano Insua could be making a £4.2m move to West Ham. Juventus have confirmed that they wish to take up the £13.5m option to buy on Alberto Aquilani's loan contract. Ronaldinho has rejected a move to Blackburn but could yet set the Premier League a light if Gerard Houllier can land his man. David Bentley has handed in a transfer request but with Spurs looking for upwards of £10m for him I don't expect he will be leaving this January. David Bentley will be fighting with David Beckham for a first team place one his loan deal is finalised this week. Roque Santa Cruz is leaving for just £4.5m yes £4.5m believe it or not to Lazio this is 18 months after City paid £18m for his signature. City are looking to offload a number of players in January such as Given, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Adebayor and Lescott in an effort to trim their mega wage bill.Given will be going on loan to Celtic. Lescott, Wright-Phillips and Bridge will probably stay.Liverpool have mad an enquiry over a £16m move for Adebayor and with them so far behind City maybe they aren't rivals anymore so who knows with that one . Steven Ireland will be moving to Everton for £7.5m to replace Steven Piennar who is on his way back to Borussia Dortmund for just £3m.Manchester United and Manchester City are going to duke it out for Chilean international Alexis Sanchez but City don't actually need him maybe they would just buy him so United don't get him, Liverpool are also trying desperatley hard to bring in £17m Ashley Young and £10m Keisuke Honda in an effort to regain some form of European spot. Arsenal will make a £10m move to sign Per Mertesacker from Werder Bremen.Chelsea are going to make a 'marquee' signing this January in the form of £25m rated Brazilian wonderkid Neymar while Ancelloti is also eyeing a cut price £3m move for Mattew Upson who is out of contract in a few months after being told by Owen Coyle he will need to pay the guts of £20m in order to land Gary Cahill.It look's as thogh Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea could be very busy this transfer window.These are all just rumours at the minute but they are strong rumours with some backing and I think at least 50% of these deals will go through from what I hear and I know we hear it every tranfser window but this is going to be the busiest January in years.(9)(8)

No, I think you'll find they signed him permanently. Remarkably the deal was only worth 600k for Tottenham (rising to 1million depending on performances). Bargain!(4)(5)

20% sell on clause

SFC NEWS
Info coming out of Swindon is Saints have now matched the 2million asking price and are now the front runners in the race for Charlie Austin. It was announced by N Atkins yesterday that we have made substantial offers on a number of players and Austin is one of them.It is believed he has at least 5 million at his disposal

-------
Mate as a fellow Saints Fan, I think you are getting a bit carried away. I heard the Atkins interview on Radio Solent and he gave very little away. Loads of clubs are looking to Austin. Nothing has come out of SFC, and where are you getting the 5 mill from? These are all rumours coming out of forums like this one. It will happen the way it is always done, the first we heard about anything is on OS or South today. . Still Austin would be nice, but that to me says one of our strikers are leaving.(10)(4)

 

 04 Jan 2011 21:11:52

Let me tell you how LFC transfers usually work. Having been a fan so many years. Tomorrow we play Blackburn in an important game. Chris Samba wants to leave. His value is about 6-8m. Therefore it follows he will cost us the game tomorrow and earn himself a 10m move to Anfield. Seen it one too many times now. At least Im hoping for Samba. It could be Dunn yet. . lol!(1)(4)

Birmingham City have today lodged an official bid for Charlie Austin. The fee is believed to be in the region of £2,000,000 plus add ons.
I also have it on good authority that Jonathon Douglas is the latest player to be linked away from the County Ground, although he will leave at the end of the season when his contract expires, Sc thorpe are the club interested in retaining his services.
Jean Francois Lescinel is on the verge of a 1 month loan spell at Wycombe with a view to a possible free transfer at the end of the season also.(7)(3)

 

 04 Jan 2011 21:03:42
Hi ed

beckham to sunderland? any real rumours, what about nzogbia surely that's more likely?

cheers ste {ed's note - N'Zogbia is the only one I have heard with any substance, though the rumour is that he thinks he should be going to a 'bigger' club. Apparently Bruce is having difficulty selling Sunderland to him and he is waiting for the Arsenal/Spurs/United/Liverpool bid that he is convinced is about to arrive. I have a feeling he is going to be waiting a long time!}(2)(7)

To the person who posted ------A few suprise deals likely to through (according to my cousin, a journalist for a national paper)

Torres - Man City £30-40m + Wright-Phillips, Adebyor, Bridge
Woodgate - Bristol City (loan)
Shawcross - Arsenal £10-15m
Gary Cahill - Liverpool £10- 12m
Piennar - Spurs £3m
G. Neville - Stoke Free
Kaka - Spurs (loan)

----------As previously stated by someone earlier today and backed up by a second person, Cahill has a £17million transfer release clause so any club whether Chelsea, City or Liverpool will have to bid a minimum of £17million, even at this point Cahill may wish to stay with Bolton, this figure merely triggers his involvement with the transfer.

It means the bid will definatly be accepted if 17 million is offered, but it could still be accepted if cheaper(4)(10)

Why do people keep saying there has been offers of 1.2 million for Charlie Austin, when Swindon publicly annoucned that they already refused an offer of 2 million from Hull Pre season.

Rubbish, the only bid rejected pre season was a £600k bid from Millwall. Hull's rejected bid was only a week ago and was for less than £1m, hence the improved bid.(5)(4)

To the fool who suggested Andy wilkinson is rubbish and get sent off all the time. The last time he was sent off was against Manchester united two seasons ago. He is also a brilliant future prospect he plays as an old fashioned full back and is now gaining more attacking prowess than he had in the past. Tackles hard but fair it's just today's soft footballers can't take it. As for manchester united bidding for him I doubt it. It would take a million wild horses to drag wilko from his boyhood club especially now he is first choice right back. He has been there for years and loves it from yarnfield's nearby he loves it and doesn't want to leave unless he is forced out which ain't gonna happen.

Alan Pardew has ruled out any loan move for David Beckham as he hopes that a Beckham move to Spurs would allow David Bentley to arrive at Newcastle as the right midfield slot would be filled up.

Newcastle also front runners for Tottenham's Robbie Keane and may place a suprise bid for QPR's Abel Taarabt or PSG's Stephanie Sessengon.

Ronaldinho is unlikely to be going to Blackburn as his agent is in Rio De Jinero trying to sort out a move back "home" for Ronaldinho.(11)(7)

To all those posting about Gary Cahill having the 17Mil release clause, yes he does have this in his contract, HOWEVER, where you are not exactly the brightest bunch in the bush is as follows:

By having this clause it does NOT mean that players can not be sold for less than that amount, all it means if that by having this clause, if an offer of that amount is offered, then the club has to accept it, if the amount is lower then the club can still accept it.

The same goes for the majority of reasonably good Spanish players, whom nearly all have a release clause which is genreally a ridiculous amount, but they will the majority of the time still be sold for a lot less than the amount in the clause.(9)(2)

Everton want to sign Aiden McGeady who is having an awful time in Russia. They are willing to pay £4m for him.

. . . . . . . . .

What a load of rubbish, he's excelling in russia to the point Bayern Munich are trying to get him on a loan during the Russian off season, like Beckhams off season loans from Galaxy. Celtic sold himfor £12M so why would they sell him now for £4m. Fail.

Some of the potential bids ongoing are random eh? I mean Ronaldinho to Blackburn? Why would he go to team like them? Utter garbage, not had an exciting season since Shearer and Sutton led their line. Hope Spurs sign Beckham. They are one or 2 players away from having a real title push.

Back to my team, Celtic, I doubt we'll be signing anyone of great significance. All this talk of Keane, Ireland and the likes I think are wide of the mark, We signed Ljungberg who i doubt will set the heather alight but should be adequate cover for the injured Maloney although mulgrew did do a good job against the manky mob (yaaaas), Hopper is close to full fitness so I wouldn't expect too much of a rush to get a new striker in. I would still like to see us sign a new CB but majstorovic and rogne looked the part on sunday. I think we'll sign Kelvin Wilson on a pre contract or for a nominal fee just now and also K Westwood on a pre contract for the summer. Aberdeen and Hearts to battle it out for carthorse Billy Mehmet.

-Man Utd to hit good form
-Championship clubs doing the majority of the buying
-No huge signings
-An upset in the Carling Cup (Hopefully Blues to beat the hammers comfortably- KRO)

This has to be a wind up. Moyes should concentrate on his own club as Everton are total garbage this season. As for Ferguson and the Utd players he can do what he wants with his own players, and why leave players on loan when they are not guranteed games under a new manager.(8)(5)

To the person who posted ------A few suprise deals likely to through (according to my cousin, a journalist for a national paper)

Torres - Man City £30-40m + Wright-Phillips, Adebyor, Bridge
Woodgate - Bristol City (loan)
Shawcross - Arsenal £10-15m
Gary Cahill - Liverpool £10- 12m
Piennar - Spurs £3m
G. Neville - Stoke Free
Kaka - Spurs (loan)

----------As previously stated by someone earlier today and backed up by a second person, Cahill has a £17million transfer release clause so any club whether Chelsea, City or Liverpool will have to bid a minimum of £17million, even at this point Cahill may wish to stay with Bolton, this figure merely triggers his involvement with the transfer.(6)(8)

Chelsea are to table a 20m Euro bid for Subotic

"For real or are you talking nonsense you know Suarez personally?"

I know him yes, don't get to speak to him very often. Maybe once every 4-8 months or so but he does support Liverpool FC and would like to join them if they came in with an offer suitable to both himself and Ajax. As far as I'm aware there hasn't been a bid yet but I'm expecting one within the next week or so. I'm certain Liverpool will want to sign him by the Summer, it's whether or not they can afford both Luis and Eljero this month. Eljero will be signing for them though. The Insider(11)(25)

I have it on good authority that Liverpool will try and make two signings this January, Eljero Elia from Hamburg for around £12m and Luis Suarez of Ajax for between £15m and £18m. I know Suarez personally and have spoken to him once in the past couple of weeks. In the past we have spoken of his next move and he has always mentioned Liverpool FC as the team he follows. He said he is a little upset at the way the team has fallen but that he is keen to join them still and hopes they make a bid this month. Between you and me I think he wants to become the player to turn them around and get the love from the fans like Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard get. He never told me this but I feel this is what he is thinking. He also said he would be tempted by Arsenal should Liverpool not come in. He did rule out a move to both Manchester clubs, but no mention of Chelsea, Spurs or any other team. Liverpool are also hoping to secure the signings of two more players in the Summer with a left back and centreback targeted. One from Italy and one from Portugal. As of yet I don't know who they are but will try to find out as soon as I can. Eden Hazard will not be joining Liverpool so sorry any fans of Liverpool who were hoping for that signing. I believe he will be off to either Lyon or Bayern Munich.

News on Romelu Lukaku is that he won't be moving until the end of the season. Manchester City have ruled themselves out of the running as have Spurs. Chelsea, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and AC Milan will be the clubs that will be making bids. I expect him to be at AC Milan next season though. The Insider

Leicester City will sign Kyle Naughton and Kyle Walker later this week, both on permanent deals from Spurs.

This is why Spurs have refused to extend Walkers loan at QPR.

Leave it out you wally. I know you lot think you can throw your weight around, but Walker wanted to stay with QPR, and there is way he would have gone to another NPC club. Redknapp wouldn't sell this lad anyway as he has a big future in the game. He's off on loan to a Prem club, with Villa looking very likely. West Ham could be another option as Spuds could use his loan as a part of the Scott Parker deal.

QPR will be looking towards Woodgate to beef up their deffence, and either a left or right back.(7)(19)

I have it on good authority that Liverpool will try and make two signings this January, Eljero Elia from Hamburg for around £12m and Luis Suarez of Ajax for between £15m and £18m. I know Suarez personally and have spoken to him once in the past couple of weeks. In the past we have spoken of his next move and he has always mentioned Liverpool FC as the team he follows. He said he is a little upset at the way the team has fallen but that he is keen to join them still and hopes they make a bid this month. Between you and me I think he wants to become the player to turn them around and get the love from the fans like Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard get. He never told me this but I feel this is what he is thinking. He also said he would be tempted by Arsenal should Liverpool not come in. He did rule out a move to both Manchester clubs, but no mention of Chelsea, Spurs or any other team. Liverpool are also hoping to secure the signings of two more players in the Summer with a left back and centreback targeted. One from Italy and one from Portugal. As of yet I don't know who they are but will try to find out as soon as I can. Eden Hazard will not be joining Liverpool so sorry any fans of Liverpool who were hoping for that signing. I believe he will be off to either Lyon or Bayern Munich.

News on Romelu Lukaku is that he won't be moving until the end of the season. Manchester City have ruled themselves out of the running as have Spurs. Chelsea, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and AC Milan will be the clubs that will be making bids. I expect him to be at AC Milan next season though. The Insider(15)(21)

"Billy Davies on way to preston, Maurice Lindays comments on bbc radio 5 live were to fool other parties. . . and who says preston haven't got money they have the 3rd richest man in the championship as owner. . . as for transfers.
Ins
Le Fondre/ O'Grady
Leon Cort until end of jan. view of permanent deal
Adam Hammill/ Michael Kightley 1-2 million. / loan deal
2 south americans been on trial for a while now and look set to sign
Sebastien Grax french striker also on trial set to sign. . also czech keeper Martin Lejsal. . as back up keeper isn't expiernced enough and lonergan maybe on his way to prem

Out
Loan players that are already out. .carter. nolan
parkin to cardiff done deal (reportedly 100k)
Paul Parry. .Swindon 100k
chaplow to southampton done deal 80k"


So your telling me that Preston are the third richest club in the Championship! Dream on! Preston have no money to spend that is why the loaned in so many players! !
The richest three teams in the championship are :
QPR
Nottingham Forest
Ipswich

And obvs it's a load of rubish about Preston bidding for Hammill. You said they'd bid 1-2 million when the maximum you have to pay is 500,000 which sets of a release clause in his contract. And why whould Hammill want to join bottom of the table Preston when there are teams like Forest after him. He might aswell stay at Barnsley then join Preston.(15)(30)

{editor: Being a Liverpool fan I can't see this happening as we sold him for over £1 million}"

There is a 500,000 release clause in his contact meaning if somone bids this amount or higher then Barnsley have to let him talk to the other club.(15)(13)

"But no decision has been made and no approaches made to anyone."
Lindsay added: "He's contracted to another club so whether there's been a late application I don't know.
"Billy has not applied for the job but all the applicants that are now shortlisted are well known and have considerable experience."
i now hope this stops all the silly preston fans from putting false rumours on her about king billy leaving forest, and as your chairman states stop wasting your cash at the bookies and instead spend it on a match day ticket as your fan base is the same as mk dons, reddogmatt over and out(20)(21)

David Beckham will only sign for an Adidas team. He is their main guy and most famous sports man in world so they don't want him playing other kit manufacturers/ brands. Mainly Nike (man u) and puma (tottenham). Every team he played for since man u have been adidas and this was the reason he left man u the very season they changed to nike. That only leaves Chelsea, Liverpool, Stoke and Newcastle in the prem. Can't see him going to any to be honest.

Im not sure about the Leeds Utd fans comments regarding Kevin Phillips leaving Thorp Arch? However I can tell you what is a fact pal and that is Kevin Phillips who is best mates with Lee Clark & Kevin Kilbane was at the Huddersfield Town victory at the Galpharm today over Sheffield Wednesday.
Phillips was also with Peter Beagrie who commented n the game so my guess is he will be a Terrier for the rest of 2011 campaign. .
Lee Croft & Joe Garner have gone back to Derby & Nottingham Forest respectively enchancing the strong rumour that Bradley Wright Phillips is also joining from Plymouth for 900k.
