Eggert Jonsson will be the next player to leave along with Larry Kingston in the Summer. Despite there being an agreement between Jonsson and Romanov, promising to reward him with a new contract Romanov has denied all knowledge of this agreement and Jonsson is free to leave as part of Romanov's strict cost cutting plan. This suits Jonsson as he will earn a far greater sum of money elsewhere than the Clause inserted in his contract before joining the club, which should have kicked in several months ago. Expect Jonsson like Kingston to have a unexpected long term injury and Zaliukas to profit from this by playing ahead of him as Romanov feels he is better suited and more commited to Hearts. Jonsson's agent is now actively seeking a new club for his in demand client.
The Hammers will this Summer sign Steve Sidwell from Chelsea for £4.5 million while Darren Bent will make a £10 million switch from Tottenham. Juande Ramos will replace Bent with £18 million Luis Fabiano from Sevilla while he will almost certainly sign Carlos Kameni. Finally he will bolster his midfield by adding 3 one year old Guti from Real Madrid who will leave the Bernabeu after 13 years at the Spanish giants.
Liverpool could sign Brazilian right back Rafinha from Schalke and Philip Lahm from Bayern Munich. Benitez is no longer prepared to lose Xabi Alonso and will next season employ his current 4, 5, 1 formation far more with Dirk Kuyt likely to stay after succesful performances as a playmaker.
The players set to leave will be Voronin, Kewell and Pennant. Benitez will hang on to John Arne Riise until atleast January when he may be set for a move to Aston Villa. Expect Benitez to bring in one more young forward. Peter Crouch will be used as a sub next season. Benitez may try and lure Sergio Aguero to Anfield although English youngsters such as Matt Derbyshire or Gabriel Agbonlahor are more likely options.
Barclelona are prepared to pay twice what Liverpool payed for Fernando Torres in a bid to sign the Spanish forward this Summer. The Catalan giants will offer aroud £45 million and may offer Henry as part of a deal.
Liverpool will also again be tested with a fresh £40 million bid for Steven Gerrard but will have absolutely no intentions to sell their 2 star players.
Ma mate works at the finance department at Rangers and Murray is gettin them to make a £4.5 million transfer to Milan. looks like Gattuso is coming home.
Ipswich will buy David Healy from Fulham 4 1.5 millon
Love the site, hate the rumours/fantasy.
to Rob the "wisdom not wise cracks" guy, I agreed with a fair amount of what you said except regarding Arsene Wenger not signing a player he sold (referring to D. Bentley). Wenger will sell younger players if he thinks they will not break into the first team soon. He said about Steven Sidwell when he left the club that if he makes it at Reading he may buy him back, so never say never. I do agree though that it is incredibly annoying when people post that a team will be spending £130+ million. Get real it just will not happen.
Rumour I heard was Reading FC did approach from Jozy Altidore in January but were knocked back. Apparently they will try again in the Summer.
Just a small parting note, nothing is a "done deal". Pretty much ALL managers have at one time said they do not beleive a player is signed until he has signed on the dotted line.
Cheers for Reading
Aston Villa will test the Hammers with an £8 million bid for goalkeeper Robert Green as they prepare for the possibility they may lose Scott Carson in the Summer.
Valencia will offer £6.5 million for Liverpool winger and Israeli captain Yossi Benayoun in the Summer

Jan Klass Huntelaar is definitely going to Celtic. I thought it was a joke when others were saying it but it will happen. 100 percent
More speculation emerging from the lane? we will enquire, look and bid for the following, Bentley (b'burn), capel (seville), Arteta (Everton), granero, jarque and kiessling (even though he has just signed a new deal at Bayer Leverkusen)? app deals involving David Villa and Aaron ramsey are said to be 85 percent advanced, news out of the lane, Keane and Berbatov will remain at the lane as will robbo and dawson despite the arrival of jarque, pascal will go as will rocha, bent and ypl + fringe players one other thing coming from the lane is the now three spannish youth players that will arrive those names no one knows only the manager, gus and levy
3 one year old Andriy Shevcheno will re–join AC Milan this Summer for £12 million. This will mean that Chelsea will have effectively lost out £20 million on his services.

My cousin works for the Everton acadamy and is often up at finch farm and told me that Everton will sign Kevin nolan from Bolton for £2 million, Wes Brown from Man United for 3. 5, pianaar (permantley) for just £1 million. he also said that Moyes is looking for a forward just in case Johnson leaves and he will move for eidur Gudjohnson for £6.5 million, kenwyne Jones for £5 million (only if Sunderland get relagated), kenny Miller from Derby for £1.5 million and Darren Bent for just £6 million. Everton will sell Van der Meyde for £2 million (PSV), hibbert for £3 million (any1 hew is stupid enough to take him) maybe Johnson for 10–13 million (the Hammers, Arsenal and Portsmouth are after him).

Chelsea FC Summer signings:
Zdravko Kuzmanovic – Fiorentina
Sergio Aguero – Athletico Madrid
Giovanni Dos Santos – FC Barcelona
Hatem Ben Arfa – Lyon
Ezequiel Garay – Racing
Rob, you started out so well in you post but then you descended into the mindless nonsense you accuse others of.
Rafinha looks a very likely target. Huunterlaar is not a Rafa type player, he's nothing more than a poacher. Asley Cole? Are you being serious?
Rafa will make four signnings at most. I know someone only slightly connected and he tells me, as I said above, Rafinha is very much on the radar. Then, like all clubs we are looking at quite a few possibilities. Matias Fernandez and Quaresma being top of the list, but they will not be easy to get.
Luke Moore of Aston Villa will sign for Glasgow Rangers in the Summer for a price of around £4.5 million. Also coming to Glasgow is Newcastle forward Alan Smith for around £3 million. Walter Smith wants to keep a gd front line with the likes of Daniel Cousin on his way to Fulham for a cool £3 million. Rumour has it that also on the way out of Glasgow is Amdy Faye, Thomas Buffel, Alan Gow, Brahim Hemdani and Kris Boyd. This will give the manager a little bit of money to bolster the midfield and maybe defense with 'good' money coming in for the likes of Thomas Buffel, Hemdani and around £1 million for forward Kris Boyd.
