Latest rumour I've heard is Alex Chamberlain to Stoke City for £10m up front with another £2.5m in instalments to be payed over the next 4 and a half years. 3/4 of his family either live in Stoke-On-Trent or support Stoke City, or both, making the transfer a very ideal one for the 17 year old, plus the fact he will get first team Premiership football. The deal also includes Tom Soares going the other way to St.Mary's. I don't know how much credibility this rumour has behind it, but I thought I'd post it anyway as it is what I have heard and the source has been both right and wrong in the past with about a 55% success rate.. What I do know however is the AOC to Arsenal deal will NOT happen, and Man United are interested in higher profile players such as Nasri and Sanchez, whilst Southampton won't have any more contact with Liverpool because they don't like the way they conduct business. A move to Stoke, Tottenham or AC Milan look the most likely as it stands, but Chamberlain could still stay at Southampton.

He will NOT join Arsenal, the deal fell through this morning.(0)(7)

I am not a big football fan, although I follow Arsenal football club.

My sister is dating Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and yesterday at her birthday party I put the question to him in person if he is staying or going? Roughly in his words he said...

"I'm not sure to be honest, I would love to play for Arsenal, I'll take Walcott's place anyday Its up to NA and NC first to accept a bid then I can decide if I want to sign or not. I reckon its 80:20 that I will go. I will miss my boys tho, espescially adam lallana, hes a great guy."

I then asked do you know who's transfers going through?

He said the players Nigel Adkins is intrested in for Southampton before the Leeds game are:

-Radlow Majewski(Notts Forest)-1.25m
-Nicky Maynard(Bristol C)-4m
-Jack Cork(Chelsea)-900k
-Michele Camporese(Fiorentina)-3m

They will sell Puncheon, Seabourne and Butterfield.

Jack Cork will hold of talks with the saints for even longer and hope that once they head off to there pre-season tour to Switzerland, Burnley will come in and match there bid.

He told the Burnley offical website and sky sports at the end of the season "my girlfriend is settled here and Burnley will be the club i would consider top of my options list". Cork doesn't favour the move to Saint Mary's and talks have still not been held even though the bid was accpeted weeks ago

Norwich will wrap up the Pilkington deal for around 2 million in the next couple of days followed by the permanent signing of Lansbury. Pacheco may also come in on loan. Shelvey was looked at but will more than likely head to Blackpool as part of the Charlie Adam deal. This leaves Lambert looking for a centre back and goalie. For the CB position, Wes Morgan, Ian Evatt, Danny Shu, Rhys Williams, Andre Bikey and surprisingly Sol Campbell. New Goalkeeper is also being pursued with Scott Loach, Robert Green, Joe Lewis and Fraser Forster being the targets. I'm not a Norwich fan but I think Norwich and Swansea will do well this year and QPR won't. Losing Taraabt will be a big blow and I don't think without major spending they'll cut it in the Prem and as soon as they lose about 4 games, Warnock will be gone. I think QPR, Wolves and WBA will go down.(4)(10)

Expect Jutkiewicz to move to Southampton and there may well be interest from other Championship clubs in Martin Cranie and Sammy Clingan.

Watford fans, just to put the record straight. It's with great relief that I can confirm Watford are in no way interested in signing Chris Brown of Preston. There is truth behind our interest in Chris Porter, however there is still work to do, and he is to undergo a very detailed medical to prove his fitness after previous injury record, should a deal happen.

Apparently Ross Wilson is also 'testing the water' with a couple of Scottish clubs regarding potential left back options, one of which I believe is one of the Dundee clubs.

No interest in Sordell, and despite signing of Mirfin, Taylor has no interest in leaving, nor do Watford have any intention of selling him anyway. The only enquiries made have been for Loach and Mariappa (Ipswich), but they have not returned since.(9)(8)

I am a Sunderland fan, and im not wanting to cause any arguments but ave people forgot about sessengon? he was brilliant at the end of last season, and he was living in a hotel for 4 months. i can only see him getting better. and i still think with cattermole and gardener in the middle we will have enough energy, not forgetting gardener scored about 10 goals last season i believe?

i do think we need another solid defender, maybe even 2. john i would take but i have my doubts about brown. i think scott dann from birmingham could be on the cards as we have taken 2 birmingham players so far this window.

and i still think we need another proven striker, i think its a long shot but i think gyan and defoe would be a brilliant partnership...i just cant see it happening. i imagine loan players coming in again allthough i dont know who??(9)(6)

Adam Birchall from Dover athletic has been denied his request to be placed on the transfer list. However this may be adjurned as Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Newport County are interested in the 26 year old who bagged 45 goals in 49 games last term. Newport have had a £20K offer rejected by Dover, but if Birchall becomes more unsettled by the speculations regarding his departure then Dover may accept any other offers from Newport. Expect to see Newport go up to £60K for the striker, although this may not be the case as we feel Dover will accept anything over £40K. Expect Birchall to be a Newport player in 2 weeks.(8)(5)

Danny seaborne looks set to leave if saints sign a centre back, he could be involved in the part exchange for Jutwiekzc or Millwall and Burnley could be interested.
