g.barnesSunderland Fans listen up. Roy Keane is going to bring in 4 new faces in the January window, the biggest name being Lee Hendrie from Villa on a permanant deal for 1million.
Your other signings are going to be Bobo Balde on loan, whilst Keano is looking at the avalability of 2 strikers plying there trade in Scotland,Anthony Stokes and Derek Riordan.With the take over at liverpool imminent expect a drastic change as DIC said that they will provived the funds to buy whatever liverpool need both on the field and off however they also stated that they won't be wasting money like chelsea did with SWP and not play him. fpor this reason don't expect liverpool to back out of competing with barcelona and chelsea and the likes in transfer battles. villa and torres both back in contention after liverpool now have the funds.expect money to be invested in young players with billy clarke, giles barnes and micah richards being on the list. liverpool will not just splash the cash left right and center but there will be some bigger names i exepct to see a new rm lm cb and st however due to the new cash i just don't have a clue who they may be after although benitez has always been a big fan of villa and torres.start of new era for liverpool.about time!PLYMOUTH ARGYLE fans! After my post yesterday there have been developments and these are done deals. .
IN: Adi Akinbiyi (Sheff Utd) £500k, Jermain Easter (Wycombe) £180k + Nick Chadwick, Matt Jarvis (Gillingham) £350k + sell on clause, Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham) £300k.
OUT: Akos Buzsaky (to Bolton) £1m + £350k after 25 Premiership appearances, Tony Capaldi (to Wolves) £350k, Nick Chadwick (Wycombe) PX, Cherno Samba (Torquay) Loan.Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate has been given special dispensation by the FA to remain in charge at the Riverside until the end of the season. That said, Southgate plans to revamp the Boro squad in January to his liking so that the club has a balanced look to it, even if he leaves next summer. Gaitzka Mendieta, Ugo Ehiogu and Ray Parlour will all be given free transfers, and will definitely leave when the winter transfer window opens. I'm not going to pretend that I know all of Southgate's plans, but I've heard that a squad makeover will take place and that Mendieta, Ehiogu and Parlour will fall victim to the cut.I would just like to reveal in good authority that Scott Brown is a definite for Ibrox in January as he wouldn't contemplate going to the other side of Glasgow! I've also heard that Mr Le Guen is lining up a sensational move for Juninho after he helps Lyon to the Champions League. He says that he wants to play under Le Guen again and would love to help the Light Blues achive success domestically and in Europe. We are the People!Aberdeen will offer aberdeens captain russel anderson a new 4 year deal at the club making him the highist earner at pittodrie. russel anderson if he was to leave wanted to go to any other scottish team exspecially rangers and celtic due to the massive rivarly created over the years. Anderson is the most valuable player for aberdeen and can understand why clubs like rangers,celtic etc want him. i admmit a move a may bolster his chances of getting in the scotland team and he deserves it but with aberdeen looking good in the leauge this year he will stay. watch this spaceLiverpools new found wealth will result in a 12 mill bid for Gareth Barry in the summer. They will make also make a move for Huntelaar at the sa
Spurs have given up on Downing and are looking at Matt Taylor of Portsmouth instead. Redknapp is keen to take his former player Defoe to Fratton Park and a swap deal has been discussed. Ledley King will give Spurs one more season to challenge for honours or will leave with Liverpool and Arsenal thought to be keen.
Man u will have to sacrifice at least one player to land Owen Hargreaves. Due to the tax laws in Germany only contracts are tax deductable and Bayern are thought to be keen on Gabriel Heinze and John O'Shea. SAF has checked on Hetinga as a possible replacement at full back.
Chelsea will try to lure Micah Richards to Stamford Bridge and will offer SWP as part of the deal.CELTIC FC NEWS

I met Scott Brown of Hibs in the Edinbugh Sick Kids hospital (standing at the front door) and he was holding a green bag with a celtic badge on it. hmmmm
I said to him "alright Scott, where you going with that?" he said "my nephews in, im taking him in a few things"
So i said "i thought you were a Rangers fan" he said "no, no im a Par born and bred"
but he was kind of laughing/smiling because i seen him carrying a Celtic bag
so who knows what that was all about!??
I never wanted to bother him so i just said "nice to meet you" and walked away
im actually a Livi fan and arent really interested in the old firm but i read the messages on here a lot and ive seen quite a lot predicting that Scott Brown was a Rangers fan and i thought i would tell you about this, i met him on Sunday at about 1pm and his car was a black Range RoverWith the inevitable takeover expect liverpool to have a useful transfer budget for january, around £30,000,000. Lucas Neill will still join for £3,000,000 as cover for Finnan but expect young Micah Richards to make the trip over to Merseyside. He can also play centre halve don't forget. Van Der Vaart is another player Rafa has been looking at and will now be able to match Hamburgs asking price for his signature. After Rafa has completed these deals he will look to strengthen either the right midfield (no way Gerrard can move back out wide) or up front as Fowler looks off the pace whenever he plays.The top targets for Mr Wenger this January, and summer are Sevilla duo Puerta and Jesus Navas. Mr Wenger has also been keeping a close eye on Brazil's crop of up and coming young players, including Daniel Carvalho and Dudu Cearense. However the two players that Wenger has been most impressed with are young Gremio midfielder Lucas Leiva, and Ghanian powerhouse midfielder Barusso of Rimini.Arsene Wenger will be keeping a close eye on Internacional (Bra) striker Alexandre Pato who has been extremely impressive, as he scours Brazil for the next big thing in football. His other targets include Sevilla pair Puerta and Jesus Navas. The choice would be between Ribery and Jesus Navas, neither would be signed unitl the summer. It is known that Jesus Navas suffers from home sickness, so Ribery would seem like the more expensive, yet likely signing.THE MIGHTY SPURS WILL MAKE A DOUBLE SIGNING IN JANUARY. SIGNING NUMBER 1 IS ROGER PALACIA FROM BOCA JUNIORS AND SIGNING NUMBER 2 IS PROMOSSING WOLVERHAMPTON MIDFIELDER MARK DAVIES
100% ACCURATES SOURCECrystal palace are ready to offer 1.5m for in form forward billy sharp and gabor kiraly is off to west ham for 2m.iain turner to stay until end of seasonIm a Real Madrid fan, and to the person who said Real will sign Adriano, what are you talking about. why would Real sign a striker that has been out of form for 2 seasons now. Capello ranks ronaldo way ahead of Adriano.
look for Cappello to move for unhappy Henry, possibly Drogba, Zatlan Ibrahamovoic or Claudio Pizzaro.
Guti has just signed a new deal until 2010, so he won't be counted out of the starting line up next season considering with the exception of Iniesta he is the best playmaker currently on form in Spain.
Other moves will be Mexes to add youth to the side along with Chivu. I can't see a bid for Nesta. Ledley King could be on his way to Madrid if Spurs do not get Europena football, Madrid president has said he is fond of the Tottenham defence.
Arjen Robben will be signed, and chelsea may take Cassano as insurance just or Michel Salgado.
Emerson will return to Italy to AC or Inter, and he will be used to sign Kaka if it happens, again could be doubtful.More likely transfer will be Gerrard, as he is well unhappy at liverpool. the money for the tv deal will cover this. madrid however may throw in a few players like salgado, cassano, emerson or pavon who Benitez wants.
No chance for Torres at Real
