Colchester United manager John Ward has been contacted by the Leeds United board about the potential sale of Anthony Wordsworth. He is now seen surplus to requirements now Michael Rose has joined the U's as their main set piece taker.

The deal currently is surrounding a payment upfront of around £500,000 plus South African born Striker Davide Somma, 26, moving in the opposite direction.

The stumbling block reported in the local news is that Leeds United want a fee in return of around £50,000 for Somma, however, Colchester are believed to be holding out for a free transfer considering Somma has 12 months left on his current deal and Colchester have made it clear that accepting in their eyes a cut price deal for Wordsworth, Somma should leave on a free.

Southampton have joined the race for Portsmouth target Peter Whittingham.

Whittingham however, has revealed his interest in Pompey and would prefer a move to the Blue side of the South Coast, although Nigel Adkins is confident of persuading him to join his St Marys revolution.
Whittingham is said to be put off by the horrible state of Southampton streets following the recent strike by local binmen, and will hold out for a move to Pompey should Cardiff accept their bid.
Boss Steve Cotterill is prepared to come back in with a £2.5m offer and Malky Mackay may have to give in to Whittingham's wishes.

Coventry are a selling club. Lukas will go to Southampton, its his home club and SISU will cash in on all prospects. (Scott Dann and Danny Fox spring to mind)
Coventry are currently a selling Club. SISU are looking to reduce the wage bill and are forced to consider substantial offers with administration a very real prospect. They are unwilling to sell unless recouping some of their losses, any potential investors are not willing to pay to that level as they can wait until administration and pick the Club up for peanuts. Never a dull moment. Although, it is quite a dull moment on the Jutkiewicz front as he talks about how his head has not been turned for a minute by the interest from other clubs, that the dressing room is really tight and he has a good relationship with the manager, and that he is excited for the new season having been given the number 9 shirt. Yes, players say that and then leave... But there is no substance in the Jutkiewicz to Soton rumour, unless they up their bid to in excess of £1.5m (and it is not a given then). A selling Club, maybe. Learning from their mistakes, maybe not. But selling for less than we bought one year ago when we are very stretched up front and many people are hopeful of a decent season from our 22 year old front man? I don't think so.(6)(5)

I wrote a week or so on Leeds, and they're astonishing lack of activity this transfer window.

My source at Leeds has spoken once more about the dealings at the club this week and I can report the following with 100% confidence.

Lee Bowyer wanted to join the club, and even cam to Thorp Arch to negotiate. This was his desired choice. Bates was offering £3k short of what he agreed with Ipswich. As I have said before, Ken is adamant that no player will break the wage structure.

Lonergan demanded £16k a week, which the club, rightly in my opinion, refused to pay. Discussions are ongoing.

Discussions continue with a number of other players. My understanding is there are a few high earners who have agreed in principle to join. This will affect who makes up the rest of our signings due to wage and transfer fee budget.(13)(3)

Southampton have won the race to sign England U21 international Jack Cork and fair play to you for doing so. He is a great prospect and all the best to him. Jack however did not reject a move to Turf Moor, Burnley simply pulled out of the running as we could not compete with the wages Saints were offering. Burnley have an ethos at the club where all our players are on similar wages and signing Jack on £20,000 a week would go against the wage structure we have in place. Yes Southampton have signed a terrific player, but gloating about signing this player, when in fact Burnley were never in the running sums up you Saints fans.(8)(8)

Since Liverpool signed Charlie Adam yesterday evening, rumours are starting to fly round saying Raul Merieles or Lucas could be heading out after Dinamo Kiev said they want Raul. Also our bid for Stewart Downing is slowly dying down as Villa want 20million for him. I say we go for Adam Johnson or Juan Mata.

Arsenal want Nasri to stay but Arsene Wenger is going to recieve a 25million bid for him by the end of the week. Kolo Toure said he would love a return to Arsenal but maybe next season. Rumours that Aly Cicisko will be joining Arsenal is incorrect, as Liverpool have had an offer accepted and he is now waiting on a flight over here to agree contract terms and a medical. Robin Van Persie wants out as does Fabregas, but Barcelona are stalling on the Fabregas deal.(11)(10)

The only stumbling block is that Constable is not keen on returning to non-league football, although he is confident that the club can get back into the league at the third time of asking.

Constable recently had a falling out with Chris Wilder which led to him losing the Captain's armband. He is keen to leave Oxford and may well be up for the challenge at Kenilworth Road.(3)(7)

Sources within Blackburn Rovers have revealed that Manchester United found out about new signing Phil Jones transfer release clause from Sam Allardyce. The former Rovers manager illegally provided this inside information to Sir Alex Ferguson and therefore knew the exact amount to bid to trigger the transfer. This is what caused the anger from the Blackburn owners. This is not the first time Man United have procured inside information and a number of clubs are said to be considering to make an official complaint to the FA.

Complaint about what? If they didn't approach the player or agent to get to buy out clause then there is no case to answer. Do you seriously think contract clauses stay confidential(8)(5)

Me thinks rumourer got the wrong Orient

Robbie Fowler one of the world's greatest goal scorers in the last two decades is on the move again and is expected to sign today for top Thailand side Muang Thong United. There are no surprises in this move to Thailand as Robbie just loves to play football, he plays for his love of the game. The financial rewards are not relevant with Robbie Fowler as over ten years ago he was reported to have a portfolio of over 80 properties he owns on Merseyside and his net worth is in the tens of millions of UK pounds.

'God' as he is known at Anfield is revered as one of the all time greats at Liverpool Football Club where he 120 scored goals in 236 games from 1993 to 2001.(8)(6)

wolves WILL NOT be signing Matt Mills, As he Has agreed terms with sven's leicester city.

Leicester remarkable summer rebuilding continues with the club announcing the signing of Reading defender Matthew Mills.

The 24 year old who had been linked with Premiership side Stoke and wolves joins for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of 5 million and has signed a four year deal.

Mills, who will link up with another new boy Sean St Ledger in the centre of defence is the sixth player signed by Sven Goran Eriksson since the end of the season.

The former England manager had this to say about his latest recruit "Matthew is a quality defender and we are delighted to have secured his services." He is the latest player to pledge his commitment to us, which is another great endorsement for the work we are doing here at Leicester City.

"He is strong, composed and he is a natural leader. He fits the criteria that we are looking for and I am sure that the supporters will be pleased to have Matthew wearing the blue shirt. will have live score updates on all GAA Championship matches over the summer.(9)(8)
