Lee Cook to Norwich for £500k
Is this some kind of joke?? Why would QPR sell our top asset for such a small price. The chairman has slapped a £10m price tag on his head, but I think he'll go for £3m in the Jan windowGerrard will stay at liverpool.Liverpool are about to get rich. .maybe richer than Real,Chelsea & Barca so why would he leave? Furthermore, he is the captain of LFC.
By the way.
lfc jan. signings:- a.ferdinand - west ham
l.baines - wigan
k.nolan - bolton
v.d.vaart - hamburgChelsea re keen on lookin 4 young players in the january market and they are only willin 2 spend around 10 million, expect richards 2 sign for 5mil and wright phillips in xchange, also expect them 2 go for the young John Mallender of Charlton although Sheff U could make a bid for him as he is a Blades fan. Also expect spurs 2 send mido out on loan so they have space 2 bring Barny through the ranks. Also spurs wil try 2 make a bid for Curtis Davies for cover at the back as Ledley is injured a lot. Peace out!- - - - - -

and will make a move for celtic striker Hesselink to add muscle up front and competition for Ameobi.
Team will be
You heard it here first!Celtic News
Big rumours still circulating that David Beckham will arive at Celtic Park if not in January a bosman will be signed for next year, wages not a problem as he will take a big hit to have full control of his image rights. Pearson, Thompson, Beattie definately to go in Jan with maybe 1 or 2 others, Balde will go if the price is right in Jan if not deffo the summer. Kadlec and Tymoshuck deffo signings for next year with kadlec a bosman, if Tymo dosent sign Kevin Thomson of Hibs will sign in the summer. Scott Brown of Hibs will sign in Jan to cover the squad as he is eligable for champs league, riordan or beatie may move in the other direction as a make wait. 1 striker to sign in Jan and maybe 1 in the summer if Zurawski departs, Anthony Stokes or another Eastern European forward maybe Mladen Petric. If a decent bid arrives for Balde a move maybe made for a PSV centre half, i don't have his name but he maybe the big Brazilian dude, WGS may also go for short term deals for pressley yes believe it or not he is interested if the price is right, Russel Anderson also falls into that category.
For all the teady bears out their PLG has £3.5mil tops with the defense his priority and if he can sell Boydechenko for good ££££ he will go for a Lyon Centre forward namely Govou, Scott Brown contrary to the crap posted on hear is a Dunfermline fan, and wants to move to the East end of Glasgow as most of his mates are their.Manchester United will go for another strike despite SAF claiming that Larsson is the only striker coming in. He used that as a diversion so the press would keep torres out of the papers. If SAF doesn't succeed in Torres(£28million) expect Man.Utd to go for Werder Bremen's Miroslav Klose for roughly £10million. SAF will also sign Sporting Lisbon's Nani for £8million as MU have close relations with Sporting. Hargreaves will only join if he recovers sucessfully. and if Bayern are willing to sell because of the Tax laws(If SAF fails in Hargreaves he will go for West Ham's Nigel Reocoker or AS Roma's Daniele De Rossi.
If SAF's #1 Targets come expect the team to look like this (C.Ronaldo might be converted into a Attacking Midfield Role instead of his preffered Right/Left Mid)
- -Rooney- Torres-
The team will change around alot to accommodate the aging but legendary Giggs and Scholes.
Outs will be Richardson(Portsmouth) Silvestre (Villareal)Rumours-
villa to sign- klose this january for 11mil
liverpool to sign-simao and torres
chelsea to sign-huntaleer and buffon
man u to sign- hargreeves and tevesRight, lets get a few Norwich City issues straight, following on from the laughable garbage (Freddie Eastwood, yea, Pele too mate, on a free from Santos!)on here yesterday.
Near certain arrivals in January will be Lee Camp from Derby, plus the confirmation of Chadwick's full time deal from Stoke.
Possibilities include Riordan (Celtic) and Davenport (Tottenham)-the latter will depend on whether Spurs get another central defender, as Davenport is currently considered valuable cover there; he will leave, however, if Jol gets in another centre half as expected-Davenport enjoyed his long loan spell with Norwich and would be happy to return.
There is some truth in the Carlton Cole loan rumour, but it is highly unlikely that Cole would entertain dropping down a league or that Norwich could afford his wages. Same applies to Christian Dailly rumours. Obvious connections are being made with West Ham because of Peter Grant, as well as the transfers of Green and Ashton from Norwich recently; however, Norwich are more likely to get reserve or fringe players from the Hammers on loan rather than first team squad members.
The Norwich squad is paper thin at the moment, so it is unlikely any players will be leaving. Bids may well come in for Earnshaw, however, the club would expect at least £5 Million for the Wales striker. Doubts persist about his ability to play at the highest level, which may put most Premiership clubs off.
Darren Huckerby is set to sign a new deal before the end of the year.GOOONERNEWS It is being rumoured that Arsenal have stolen one of Barcelona's transfer targets?I think it can only be one of two players?Both Arsenal and Barca have been tracking Anderson(fc porto)and Oscar Ustari(independiente)!Klaas Jan Huntelaar(ajax) has been talking to both Dennis Bergkamp and Robin van Persie about life at Arsenal and his possible move?Two defenders are rumoured to be signing for the Gunners,they are Glen Johnson(chelsea)and Curtis Davies(west brom).The last piece of the jigsaw will be the summer capture of Franck Ribery(marseille).AC Milan are lining up a £6million bid for young Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner and Birmingham City are looking to secure the signing of Sebastien Larsson?Man utd are going to land owen hargreaves in jaunary and go for Raul Garcia in a £10m deal. ferguson will also land fernando torres, who will be looking for top flight football next season.
Arsenal will sell Reyes to Real Madrid, but not buy baptista at the end of the season. instead wenger will look to sign maeschrano in the summer as well as Frank Ribery.
Chelsea will hope Henry moves to Barcelona and will make a bid of £35m to land Eto, who will be their only summer signing.I HAVE POSTED QUITE A FEW RUMOURS ON HERE IN THE PAST AND I LIKE TO THINK IVE BEEN RIGHT QUITE A LOT ,FOR EXAMPLES,WRIGHT PHILLIPS TO CHELSEA,ANDY JOHNSON TO EVERTON,NOW I HAVE IT IN GOOD WORD THAT ARSENE WENGER WILL BE SIGNING DJIBRIL CISSE IN JANUARY!WATCH THIS SPACE.The takeover of Liverpool will be announced in the first week of the New year. The new board will give 100% financial backing to Benitez but will not waste money like Mourinho does. Once the takeover goes through, Rafa Benitez will be looking at the following targets: Anton Ferdinand, Giles Barnes, Daniel Alves, Lucas Neill, Rafael Van Der Vaart, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Lukas Podolski, David Villa, Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Fernando Torres. In no way am i suggesting that all of these players are to sign for Liverpool - its just these are the ones Benitez is interested in. Expect Van Der Vaart, Neill and Barnes to sign in January atleast.
=v1=I have heard a whisper that Rafael Benitez will change the Liverpool formation to a 4-3-1-2, meaning Steven Gerrard will be given permission to return to the centre of midfield with Xabi Alonso and Momo Sissoko either side of him. The attacking midfielder could be Luis Garcia, it could be Harry Kewell, but I've been informed that it will be Juan Roman Riquelme of Villarreal. Riquelme could be ready to test himself in the English top flight, and Liverpool's Spanish roots could play an important part in luring the Argentine to Anfield. Should Benitez pursue a move for Riquelme, it would probably cost a comfortable £14m - though the potential takeover would fund the move.Spurs news: spurs to sign miroslav klose from werder bremen in the summer with the deal likely to be sorted out after both clubs are out of the uefa cup to partner berbatov up front next season for around 16million euros and former full back stalteri could be part of deal.also spurs to move for young bulgarian sensation valery bojinov whos struggling to get into the juventus team even though they are in serie b with him likely to join berbatov at spurs.This will spell the end for robbie keane and mido with aston villa and west ham leading the chase for there signatures. .this comes from a reliable source close to the club.Now liverpool have got big money they will spend big in the summer.He will only get in Lucas Neill in january for £2m.But in the summer rafa is gona spend big!
RB Dani Alves-Sevilla-£10
LW/ST Anderson(Next Ronaldinho!)-Porto-£25M
CM Giles Barnes-Derby-£5M
RW Lennon-Tottenham-£12M + Harry Kewell
Rafa will get rid of players such as Dudek,Warnock,Hyypia,Kewell,Zenden,Pennant,and Fowler.

Pearson - SunderlandMy brother works at Aston Villa and he tells me that it's a pretty open secret that JLloyd Samuel will sign for Spurs in January. He is desperate to move back to London and rejected a deal from Charlton in the Summer.
The fee is rumoured to be two and a half million pounds.J'Lloyd Samuel and Aaron Hughes to sign for Newcastle, with James Milner moving the other way to Villa Park.
Milan Baros will join Spurs in a move which will see Robbie Keane and £2m head to Aston Villa.
Eric Djemba-Djemba will head out of Villa on loan til the end of the season in a bid for regular first team football, with Birmingham City and Middlesborough both very interestedMy sources within the PFA have told me of a well known England international who will be sold in Jan because he has been having a relationship with a youthteam player. The married star currently plays for a side who consider themselves a family club and they are afraid of how this news will affect them. The PFA are preparing to take action against the club if this happens. Watch this space.Wenger may go Brazilian over the summer (in footballing terms). Wenger has been keeping a close eye on three young Brazilian players, they are as following: Lucas Leiva (Gremio) who is also attracting admiring glances from Munich, both Milan clubs, Ajax and both Madrid clubs. Wenger has also been taking a close look at new Internacional(Bra) star Alexandre Pato since bursting on the scene. Wenger will travel to the World club championships to see the 17 year old. Another player Wenger has been keeping an eye on is young Udinese defender Felipe, and may include Djourou as part of the deal. wenger is also interested in Sevilla duo Puerta and Jesus Navas. Wenger will make the choice between pursuing a deal for Navas or Ribery. It is well documented that Navas suffers from extreme home sickness, so Ribery seems like the more expensive, but likely option. Wenger is also interested in Barusso of Rimini, and Livorno goalkeeper Amelia. He has also been looking at Carvalho and Dudu of CSKA just like every other big club in Europe.
