Martins out and Huntelaar in at Newcastle.
My mate saw Roy Keane in the Bridges yesterday and asked for his autograph. He asked about new signings and apparently he was told that Juve are not coming to the SOL for nothing he did not mention names but hinted at Del Piero
From another sauce, also expect Michael Chopra to sign by next week. He's homesick and missing the North East.
Curtis Davies £8 million
Andres Guardado £4 million/Roy Beerens free
Senderos £3 million
Hleb 2 PSV £4 million
I hate the way people make up rumours, for example saying Quaresma £7 million to Arsenal.
Thats just wishful thinking, as he will sign for Athletico Madrid for £12 million.
Andy Cole will join Reading this week along with Thomas Gravesen, both on free transfers.
My Uncle knows a man who is a financial adviser for a top English club and he says a key player in the England team will definitely sign for FC Barcelona, no names were mentioned but I guess there talking about Frank Lampard
Arsenal will only buy a couple more players as well, one being the French right back Bakari Sagna maybe Curtis Davies if Senderos goes and a talented playmaker. everyone thought Wenger was interested in Ribery, the real interest was in Samir Nasri. why would Ribery go to Bayern Munich when he wanted to play in the Champions League, because no top clubs wanted him. Think about it? it makes sense
Why do people still keep posting Teddy Sheringham rumours? He has signed for Colchester United.
I heard that Malcolm Christie may also be signing for the U's. Do not know how reliable that is.
Why is it that the Hammers fans always steal player rumours from other teams, especially Everton, and link them with there own teams? This is a rumours forum, not a wish list.anyway, back to the rumours. David Moyes was asked to give the board his top eight transfer targets for the Summer, a week later he was told he could have four of his choices, but only three if he bought a certain forward as the the valuation would be a record purchase for the Blues. Moyes has learnt his lesson regarding Europe and knows he has to splash out and with tv money dramatically increased this year he will have the funds. targets are:
Jagielka £4 million
Alan Smith £5 million
Leighton Baines £4 million
Keiron Dyer £8 million
Julio baptista (johnson to play off) £8 million
David Trezeguet £7 million
Fernandez (probably loan) £8 million
Luis Saha £11 million (record signing)
expect to see a lot more of James Vaughan (the wonderkid) next season, and no doubt if he plays well and gets some goals some team with too much money and not enough talent will poach him off off us.mmm deja vous?
Arsenal could bid for Juve forward David Trezeguet. The fee that Afc could bid is in the region of £10–£15 million.
Robbie Fowler will be at Home Park in the new season, but unfortunately for Pilgrims not as a player. He will be down to gain his UEFA Pro licence and play golf. He has registered membership at St. Mellion
Portugese newspapers are heavily reporting that Simao is to be in Liverpool this Friday to sit a medical. The reported arranged fee is STG13 million. No more highly tipped rumours as of yet.
Luton signed Paul Furlong Wednesday, Peschsolido on Tuesday but will not announce until Thursday. Chris Perry signing Thursday.
Rowan Vine will sign for Watford early next week after being told he is not in Steve Bruce's Premier League plans. Fee expected to be in the region of £2 million. I am a mate of Paul Tait and he still keeps in contact with everyone at Blues.
Charlton will soon announce the signing of Todorov on a one year deal. He was offered more money from Pompey but wants regular 1st team football. Should be announced by the end of the week.
Arsene Wenger will be signing none other than kieron Dyer for a figure of £4.5 million + Senderos he is going to get the no 8 shirt so this must surely mean the end of Freddies career as a gooner. More when I get it M. E
Coventry by the end of the week will complete the signings of Palace duo Gary Borrowdale and Michael Hughes. Iain Dowie has also inquired about Scott Sinclair (Chelsea) Lee Hendrie (Villa) and Chris Eagles (Man United)
Takeover will also be sealed, signed and delivered by 13th July. However funds will not be avalible for players until January.
A few weeks ago a friend of mine posted some Scottish Premier League stories as he is seeing someone close to a agent in Scotland and as you can see if you look through the things he posted he was spot on with the majority of it.
Anderson leaving the Dons
Hibernian signing the Chelsea goalie
Killie picked up the lad Bryson from Clyde
Motherwell did reveal their new boss within the timescale he said they would and a few other bits and pieces including Celtic making a big purchase by the end of June which turned out to be Donati from Milan.
He sent me a e–mail yesterday with the following stuff.
Hearts are looking to bring in a left back within the next week or two and are also on the lookout for a forward as they are worried about the fact Pinilla and Bednar have both Suffred bad injuries recently and appear a bit injury prone. No news of a manager has been heard yet so unless it is another one of Romanov's employee's elsewhere do not expect anything soon.
Hibernian are looking at adding one or two more players with a bit more exeperience with Collins still looking at the French leagues for other players he may be able to get on loan or for small fee's.
Rangers are still wanting Cueller but because of the issues over price they have two other targets whom they are willing to go to if this deal is not done within the next seven days. They are also expected to bring in another one or two players to boost the squad number and are really pushing the naismith deal but are concerned that Celtic may offer more money than they are willing to offer.
Aberdeen are expected to try and find some defensive cover after losing Anderson but like many Scottish Premier League clubs they are looking at bosmans or players with low fee's. They cannot spend anywhere near what they got for Anderson.
Killie signing Bryson from Clyde is part preparation for the likely exit of Naismith and they may look at Clyde again for additions.
Falkirk are looking at more loans with young players at Arsenal after the success of Stokes and Arsenal and Liam Brady are happy with players getting games at Falkirk to help their development.
Celtic are hoping to have another two signings in place with the next fourteen days with one expected to be the biggest signing in Scotland this Summer. It's common knowledge they are looking at forwards but they are also looking at full backs and the left side of midfield. Appiah is now 99 percent unlikely to happen because of the cost and the bidding war his agent is generating amongst British clubs. Strachan is happy to look at offers for Jarosik, Gravesen, Miller, Balde and many young lads like Lawson and Quinn who will leave for small fee's as neither made any impact while out on loan.
Motherwell are hoping to secure three or four faces quickly as they are very low on numbers and McGhee is using every avenue available to him to get loans, bosmans or players on small fee's. Expect one or two he has had in the past to be at Fir Park very soon.
Dundee United are still interested in Stephen Hughes and Gavin Rae but have to wait to see who else comes in for them as both believe they will get more money elsewhere so they are willing to sit tight. Mark DeVries is waiting to hear from Levein and is willing to work with him again.
Gretna will be working mainly with Bosmans and like Killie they are looking at Division One to try and pick up guys who showed up well last year for small fees.
Just flying home from Mallorca Palma airport yesterday, and saw Wes Brown there. For all those that see footballers in certain cities and make an immediate link to a transfer, do not be so naive. You think Wes Brown is moving to RCD Mallorca?
Expect Florent Malouda to sign for Chelsea after Lyon said they are considering a big offer. The boy wants to come to the Blues, and Lyon are willing to part with about £11 million. Arjen Robben will sign new five year 90,000 per week deal, and the Shaun Wright–Phillips + Diarra deal to Tottenham could fund the Malouda move, with Chelsea also on verge of signin wonder–boy Alex Pato. Boulahrouz to Sevilla for around £4 million, while Dani Alves could leave as part of an agreement. Liverpool may have signed Torres, but word is that Bellamy is on way out. Man United are not spending any more and will sell Heinze to Spanish side. Chelseaboy.
My source at Villa who works in accounting says a big £9.5 million million move for Utaka will be done by the end of the week also a bid for Shaun Wright–Phillips has been accepted
