Norwich City will finalise the Jonny Howson deal tomorrow, with Howson's signing being confirmed in the afternoon/evening.

The option to 'parade' Howson at the Chelsea game on Saturday was considered, but Lambert doesn't want unnecessary publicity.

The deal will be around £700k up-front, with various add-on's. Very good value for money.

Progress on other transfers is slow, but the cancellation of De Laet's loan deal opens up the possibility of an extra player joining on loan.

whatever decision is made it will be managed admirably by the Chairman. Just look at his track record with him having a say in football matters which normally is frowned upon by fans! Money is there to be have and we could buy realistically three players for the price of Hooper or Rhodes. So you fans can live with you pipe dream: we know it will be reality by the end of the transfer window!

Now let me see if I can get this right. In the last few weeks Matt Tubbs of Crawley has been going to, according to those on this site, Ipswich (laughed off by the manager), Wigan (too high a leap), Bournemouth (£450k bid rejected, not returning with another), Millwall (yeah, right), Birmingham, Leeds, Huddersfield, Crystal Palace (they've signed a few recently all from a higher/same level - and won't spend any more), Portsmouth (unlikely as yet another new mystery owner), Hartlepool, Brighton (seriously?!) and now whackiest of all Barnsley (an alleged £300k bid after Bournemouth's £450k was rejected) Per-lease people, THINK before you type.

Swansea looking to sign spearing--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK for Swans bench


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Newly promoted championship side with 2nd tier players still riding the rush of promotion,spearing would go straight into the 1st 11,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2nd tier players? Think you'll find them plying their trade in the top tier now actually. Spearing would not go straight into the starting line-up at all. And if you're a Liverpool fan.......former huge club riding the rush of former glory that were held at home in a very even game this season by so-called "2nd tier players". Swansea have earn't the right to play in the league and currently sit top half. Poke it. Jesse

Can I just add over this hooper / Southampton debate? Why would he leave Celtic and go to a lesser team? Regardless of the wages he would receive. Another season at paradise and he will be going to a top six premiership team and not a doody team that will go back down the following season if they get promoted, and I hope they don't!

Celtic.

All you ever see on this page now and Hooper out, Rhodes in. It's getting boring really isn't it? Hooper will not be leaving for now at least. A player of his calibre is hard to come by and the fact we are approaching late January means it would probably take a bid upwards of £10m to have the Celtic board to seriously consider it. If Southampton get promoted I feel Gary may seriously consider the move but he is enjoying life in Scotland and might feel that challenging for trophies and the prospect of playing in Europe is more appealing than either a relegation battle of a series of mid table finishes but at the same time might want to boost his international hopes.

Rhodes won't be coming in to Parkhead in January and very probably not in the Summer either. Albeit he is publicly known as a Celtic fan the draw of the the EPL is one many players will be unable to refuse, depending on the club that come in for him. With the likes of Spurs now keeping an eye on his progress it's unbelievable to think that people still believe that he will join Celtic. His price tag is also steadily rising for the time being too, something that will rule Celtic out of the race.

Why does every other Supporter say Wolves are not ambitious?
With a new Stadium pretty much being built, new Training Facilities, a 50m revamp of the Leisure facilities for schools and homes creating money for the Wolves with a 2m yearly Government profit. First Football club to have a Mobile phone Tariff creating further income for Wolves, revamp of Molineux Hotel becoming the biggest football conference centre in the UK.
But we are not ambitious at all are we.
OHHHH and guess what we are still in profit after all the expenditure, best run club in Country by a country mile and give it 15/20 Years time all your Leicesters, Man Citys, Chelsea's, QPR's will be begging for a Chairman like Morgan :)

Chaplow never wanted to leave Burnley and is a fan of the club, he is born and bread a Lancashire lad in the shadow of Pendle hill and would only come back to Burnley if he was unhappy at the Saints. Also Burnley have McCann, Marney and Bartley in that position and Chaplow although a great player would not improve the team in that department.
