ed who do you see Swansea, Norwich and QPR bringing in to claim another season in the top flight and Reading, Southampton and West Ham to try and stay in the top flight? Thanks {Ed003's Note - out of the teams you mention I think QPR and West Ham will do most business the others will probably just add a few and carry on with the same ethos that has given them there recent success,as for which players I really couldn't say at the moment}

James Collins (shrewsbury), Sam Baldock (west ham), Adam le fondre - loan (reading), and hearing since he was put on the transfer list Chris Maguire is a top Target.

I keep hearing about Chris Maguire to Watford. I do believe that watford are after a striker. Maguire is on the transfer list for around £350,000 and matches watford's search. It could happen. As a watford fan I would be pleased, iwelumo and garner had a poor season so getting maguire would be a boost.

Derby county are going to have a small sum of the income from transfers added

Steve davies-Asking price-1.4 million

James Bailey-Asking price of 750k

Chris maguire-Asking price of 575k

Lee croft-Asking price of 210k

Nigel clough has already hinted at the posistions he wants.As he wants the club to have 2 of every posistion
and apart from experience at the back(defence) players under 25.SO below each posistion is his main target and backup
target


1st Priority

Left Back(Young and Pacey)
1.Paul Dixon
2.Joe Mattock


Aidy white will be asked by leeds if he would join derby if leeds bid for davies as Nigel clough is a huge admirer
and thinks he would only go to derby with a nudge in the right direction.But most probally prem bound with swansea
keen.Thats why its not his first choice with the amount of time and effort it could take to get him and then him choosing
another club2nd Priority

Striker (Young)

1.Johnny Russell(Chris maguire will be used to get him)
2.Will Grigg3rd Priority

Centre Midfielder

1.Fegor Ogude


There is only one target as Nigel wasnt ever doubting he would be able to get his target and with a fee already agreed its the most likely to
be our first signing.4th Priority

Winger(right)

1.Michael Jacobs
2.Daniel Powell5th Priority

winger(left)

1.Andrew driver
2.James DaytonLast priority

Cb cover for injured Barker

1.Krystian Pearce


Notts county are allowing him to leave and derby are prepared to pay the 130k + connor doyle on loan.This is all true the only player to get close to speaking to derby is fegor ogude the rest are just targets if derby manage to be successful in their bids
Derby county should be seeing all the players next to 1.These are other players but these will be taken on trial because of being released


Frank Nouble-Released from west ham
Karleigh Osbourne-Released from Brentford(Charlton and Notts forest have offered him one aswell)
Gavin Hoyte released from Arsenal(he wants to join his brother at Middlesborough)


Dont forget derby fans that 15 new players have been brought to the youth squad and 9 of them are youth internationals so promising.

Crystal Palace are close to securing five transfers in the next week. They want seven new faces in total, and Dougie Freedman will have money to spend - the owners have stopped spending on Selhurst Park and are prepared to back Freedman. They also expect 2-3m for Clyne, most of which will go on players.

This week they will finalise:

Alek Tunchev (Leicester, free)
Joel Ward (Portsmouth, 400k-500k)
Luke Freeman (Stevenage, 500k)
Cho Young-Cheol (Omiya, 200k)
Kim Andr? Madsen (Str??msgodset, 225k)

They also want to secure Kane Ferdinand and Kosta Barbarouses, and are considering offering a trial to Rhys Murphy. They looked at resigning Lewis Grabban but reneged.

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson said that he wants to sign a replacement for Paul Huntington fairley soon. Here are the possible candidates:

Clarke Carlisle - Released by Burnley, spent time on loan at Northampton last season.

Adam Lockwood - Released by Doncaster. Many Yeovil fans will know him very well.

Richard Hinds - Spent the end of the season here, but is currently a free agent.

Terrell Forbes - Seems unlikely but could be in the mix!

Southampton have no chance in signing either Michael Owen or Grant Holt. Firstly both of them are too good to go to Southampton. Holt will be moving to an established PremierLeague club and Wowen will not want to move south because he has his horse stables up there and has always live dup north so Southampton have no chance and have gotta stop beliving they are a big club when they are not.

Believable6 Unbelievable4

Good, don't want or need either of 'em. We have long term ambitions to be a 'big club' and players nearing or past their sell-by date don't fit the strategy.

Agree0 Disagree0

So you wouldn't want a striker that scored 15 premiership goals playing at southampton? let me tell you as a norwich fan - you could a lot lot worse, that guy gives everything.

but as things go, he's NOT for sale anyway - we are VERY happy with that.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, but like we said carrot cruncher...we dont want him, so please stop arguing with yourself and get a girlfriend....COYRs

Agree0 Disagree0

A Girlfriend - no need, i have a wife of 15 years - very happy thank you!

Agree0 Disagree0

Holt will be lucky to score 7 next year 1of and your end up selling him for half mill if your lucky more good business sence from the trailor trash

Think its sad how everyone is taking the p*ss outta max and blackpool not winning the playoffs i for 1 would of loved a day out at wembley ( win or lose ). At the end of the day for a club the size of blackpool to be in 2 playoff finals in 3 years is a massive achievement!!

'Learnt his lesson from Leicester experience?' you clearly havnt got a clue! He was sacked because he got us relegated to the 3rd tier of english football for the 1st time in decades....hence his sacking was fully justified

with podolski in already hopefully some of these could bring in some money and help bring in a couple of quality midfielders and maybe cover for sagna at right back?
