I was out with my fiance having a meal at the pump house restaurant in Shincliffe Durham last night and saw Roy Keane and Niall Quinn having a meal with Jermaine definitely. this to me can only mean one thing so expect definitely to sign very shortly. also heard from reliable source that Graveson and Sami Hyypia will definitely sign for SAfc before tour of Ireland commences.
Haway the lads
I have it on good authority that Bobo Balde and Paul Scholes will sign for Sunderland before the Black Cats return to pre–season training on Monday.
Also it is likely they will sign either Jermaine Defoe or Robbie Keane from Tottenham for a fee believed to be in the £10 million region, my boyfriend is mates with some one at the Sunderland Echo.

Just some FYI. Kris Boyd does not stay in a posh area with fellow footballers next door, he stays in Ayr.
The Ljungberg deal at Fiorentina is on. Wenger wants Mutu, who has put in a transfer request after Luca Toni went to Bayern. He has been there less than a year and Fiorentina want their 7 million Euros back. Wenger is offering Freddie and 2 million Euros. You'll see.
Shocking rumours really.
Chelsea on verge of Malouda signing (12 million)
Robben IS going to Real Madrid (12– £14 million)
Chimbonda to Chelsea (10– £12 million)
Quaresma to Atletico (12– £14 million)
Tevez to Man United (This is true it is been known apparently for some time but now it is been made public, the guy wants to go to United and they have the financial clout. £4 million for seasons long loan then to buy, £25 million. )
That will be the end of Man United's spending. Heinze will stay despite these ridiculous reports. Alan Smith looks set to go as he is not wanted. HAZE
Mark Hughes is considering 3 'big money' bids for David Bentley. Two are from Premier League (likely Man United and Newcastle) and one is from Spain (not sure which club). Bentley wants a big move, Hughes is resigned to losing him sooner or later. If the money is right he may be off. Some discussion about Scholes going to Blackburn as Player/coach with his mate Sparkey, but that is thought to be in the Pipe for 08–09 season.
Oba Martins to leave and replaced by Huntelaar
My cousin works at Reading and the news there is that Nicky Shorey is stalling on his contract with the club, as he is looking to join Big Sam at Newcastle, as this will only enhance his England chances.
Liverpool will sign Porto winger Ricardo Quaresma within 48 hours after agreeing a fee of 22 million Euros, around £14.9 million. Liverpool had a bid of 20 million Euros rejected but have now met Porto's asking price for the talented 23 year old.
They will then look to seal a deal for Alessandro Mancini from Roma.
Man United news big clearout at United the dead–wood have to go before United can buy Outs Richardson £4 million Everton or Newcastle Heinze £6 million Real Madrid Smith £6 million Newcastle or Everton Silvestre £3 million Lyon or bordeux and Saha £8 million France or Italy do not know who with. Rossi Pique and evans given chances this season Ins will be Tevez £24 million or Berbatov 26 m Tevez 1st choice if cannot get him Berbatov will come but will not be both like some are saying United are not got the money for both.
Leicester City are to set sign Tom Soares From Crystal Palace for a fee believed to be around £1.2 million
Liverpool buy both Simao and Qaresma, and let go of Kewell and Zenden. Gonzalez may be given another year to prove himself.
Bellamy and Defoe might be swapped.
Liverpool are also trying to get Tevez on a season's loan with an agreement to buy him for £25 million next year. Only if they do not get Tevez will they try for the Bellamy– Defoe swap deal.
Rafa is getting frustrated with Seville trying to hold LFC to ransom and instead is turning his attention to Real Madrid's Cicinho for approx £8 million.
If Rafa struggles with the above forward options, he will simply sell Bellamy for around £8 million, and buy Saviola on the cheap, and try to get Giuly of FC Barcelona on a free at the same time.
Cardifff City to sign Robbie Fowler
Cardiff are putting together a package sponsered by local business men to buy Fowler, as City will not break there wage structure.
Ryan Giggs will sign a two year deal at Parkhead in the next two weeks. Celtic will also make a loan move for Glen Johnson of Chelsea.
It is reported that Arsene is looking to add Martins (although could be N'zogbia) to his squad in exchange for Senderos and £7 million. He will then bring in Curtis Davies (7 million + Connolly loan) as Senderos's replacement. He will also bring in Bakhri Sagna (6.3 million) to be 1st Choice RB with Eboue pushing up into midfield to provide cover for Hleb. I have also heard that Arsene will also go for Sami Nasri from Marsaille for £6 million up front with a further £4 million in add on's as a long term replacement for Ljungberg (who will be at Arsenal next season) or Robinho from Real in part exchange with Reyes (Unlikely though). Leaving will be Henry (Done Deal £16 million), Reyes (Real Madrid, £8 million), Poom (Watford, Undisc), Gilbert (Cardiff £1 million), O'Caerill (Wigan 750k), Muamba (Done Deal £4 million), Flamini (Italy £1.5 million), and Aliadiere (Done Deal £2 million).
Any Comments. (B–MAN).
Mr Jol wants Shaun Wright–Phillips but Chelsea playing hardball if that falls through Harry Kewell is the next option.
Everton will match Prestons valuation for David Nugent and steal him from under the nose of Portsmouth. He has gave his word to David Moyes that he will go there once the two clubs agree the fee. He has spoke to Portsmouth but will wait a few days for Everton to make their move.
