Jan Vertonghen (Ajax) looks definite to be leaving Ajax this summer with lots of big European clubs chasing him such as Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and even Italian giants Juventus whom are all looking to strenghten their defences for the upcoming 2012-13 season. Arsenal are in poll position to nailing the tough tackling Belgian defender who could be pairing up with former Ajax defender Thomas Vermaelen at the Emirates. This valued price tag on Vertonghen is to be around £7-£10 million.(18)(4)How can you class Liverpool as a european giant? Past glories maybe? They are miles away from Arsenal and SpursAnd Newcastle and ChelseaThey can kind of be called a big club (past glories), but I get where you're coming from. They've been horrific in recent years.

He is a pretty good defender. Lot's of clubs are chasing him.

Reading have sent their chief scout to Ipswich this afternoon. They are looking at Aaron Cresswell as an alternative to Ian Harte if they are in the Premier League next season.(23)(9)Hands off pleaseIf they were at Ipswich I would think Martin would be a more likely target.Arron Cresswell is Ipswich's solid left back, if he does leave it will cost Reading a fair packet in transfer fee's, PJ aint looking to sell, we are building for next season

According to the Mirror Southampton are considering buying Doyle from Wolves.

As a Saints fan, I like to think we have a bit more ambition and creativity than making this signing.

Thankfully it is in the mirror so probably absolute BS. No disrespect to Doyle, he is solid but has never really been more than just an 'ok' striker.(17)(8)Bit like your club then chap !Who the hell do you think you are you aint even been promoted and you say doyle aint good enough for ya.s get a grip mate.To the second post. umm what position are your team in lol you idiot. were southampton and were top of the league!!Doyle should go to Reading.Way to good for Southampton.Your right it is BS.He may be just what you need, knows what it takes to scrap at the foot of the league and survive for a few seasons. Bryher PilgrimDont think he will go to saints as he ,s had enough of playing for whipping boy,s,as you lot will find out if you do get promoted.I'd consider this unlikely, he is in a vaguely similar mould to Billy Sharp and Tadanari Lee who we brought in in January. It would be foolish to bring in another who plays a similar way. Also everyone knows how adkins likes to do his deals behind closed doors, so any rumours are likely just rumoursIgnore previous comment, i got him confused with someone else. He is different to those two, however used to playing a different system to what Southampton useThis is the 2nd post we are reading and on friday we.ll see who the person is.Tbh im not a wolves fan, but doyle is too good for saints.

if it wasnt for the fact wolvles have ruined him he could get in any side in the prem par the top 6...

he should have signed for everton when he had the chanceHe would score more than lambert in the premNo offence mate but you're starting to sound like the Norwich fans on here who seem to think that no-one is good enough for them. Doyle would be a massive coup for Soton.Kevin Doyle will NEVER go to a team like southampton, you'll just buy players that are useless like that fat billy sharp!Hi. I wrote this original post. Just to clarify:

I do think Doyle is decent but Saints tend to be a bit more creative and ambitious when making signings than just signing 'safe bets'. I think Doyle would be solid and a safe signing, but if you look at types we buy they tend to be less well know and a bit more exotic (e.g. tadanari lee, steve de ridder etc) with the exception of Billy Sharp who was a rush buy to fill the gap incase lambert or lee were injured.

As I said: Doyle is a decent player but based on Southampton's previous signings they tend to be a bit more ambitious and adventurous rather than signing an 'ok' (by premier league standards) current prem player. Don't think we are 'too good' for doyle, I think we look for different players, that is all.Arrogence and Saints fans go hand in hand on this site who would you prefer Messi as he would love to play for youSaints fans show as much Arrogence as any other fan on here, this is a banter site if you dont like it then dont read it, as one of the comment said allready Adkins does all his buisness behined closed doors so this is just a stupid rumour.

What you got to rememer is at the begining of the season people on here said we would be relagated, half way through we would not keep the pace we set up, at Xmas our bubble would burst, yet we have 5 games left, top of the league. I think we have every right to shove it in some of your faces dont you. However most of us Saints fans no there is still 5 games left and know we have not been promoted yet, we are just taking one game at a time.Totally agree, mate. Arrogence (sic) on this site means 'we hate your successful club proving us wrong'. Oh and we don't need Messi cos we've got Lallana (watch 'em bite). {Ed025's Note - people dont hate you because you are successful mate...its because some of your fans are getting ideas above their station!..they are very nasty towards other fans, especially pompey, and as has been said before...nobody likes a smart arse!..if you show some humility and respect towards others, you just might just get some respect back..Sorry Ed025 i will show no respect to Pompey fans after the way they gloated and gave us a hard time when we were in trouble, they showed us no respect what so ever, they were praying that we went out of buisness. as for being nasty towards other fans, i thought it was a Banter site Ed025 thats all it is, its just banter. Fans do hate a sccessful club and call arrogence if you like this season for a change we have been successful so why shouldn't we be full of our selves. {Ed003's Note - I dont hate successful clubs nor do I hate my rivals,I dislike them and enjoy when things are not going right for them..but hate?? over a game ?? }I Couldn't agree more Ed025 i personally dont hate Pompey fans nor there club and Saturday was a brilliant atmosphere which is why i dont want to see Pompey go out of buisness but what anoys me about people on this site is that Saints fans get slated for giving Skates a hard time yet trust me if the tables were turnt they would be doing the same to us, have to wonder if we would be getting the same sympathetic backing the Sates seem to get. {Ed003's Note - On here you would,Oh, I'm Ed 003 btw ;-) }Ed025 : I said 'proving us wrong' and we have and that's what people hate/dislike (semantics). As the post above mine says, people have been writing us off ALL season. If we finish 3rd or even 4th it will be a successful season for us (humble enough for you). On the current banter page there are 2 posts initiated by Pompey fans with Saints responding. Is that a crime? Oh and if someone wants to make a smart arse comment about Messi, i will give a smart arse response.Children please behave!Banter is a word used by upstarts to justify acting like a d#@k

Personally wish Saints well should they get promoted but a small section of their fans who post on here will be intolerable on here should they do so.

Stoke City
Jarvis - Wolves - Full Transfer
A deal has already been made and
accepted but cannot be a comfirmed
signing until wolves are comfirmed

Lukaku - Chelsea - Season Loan
Stoke almost loaned the young Belgain
striker at the start of the season
but was canceled because of the
club's rule.

Stoke City
Woodgate - ? - Full Transfer
Woodgate could be a free agent if he
cannot complete his clause with the
club that is to play 3 more games until
the end of the season.

Upson - Many Clubs - Full Transfer
Struggling to get much first team
football at Stoke City and would
prefer to move. Southampton and
norwich remain favourates.

Tonge - Championship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans, Championship

Soares - Championship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans, Championship
or Hibernian likely.

Jones - Many Clubs - Full Transfer
Struggling to get first team football
at Stoke City lots of English and
over seas sides interested in signing
the Trinidad & Tobago International
Striker. This remains the most likley
transfer selling for Stoke.(14)(7)A deal hasn't been struck with Jarvis although Stoke looks a likely destination for him. Intersting that someone mentions Joe Cole to QPR as Stoke are very keen and nearly took him on loan previouslyUpson to Norwich? Dream on.
No room for aging old hacks and has-beens at Carrow Road and certainly not Stoke rejects.
Bennett, Ayala, Whitbread and Ward will be our four first team options in CD next season, plus R Martin as cover there.Jarvis will be at Everton next season....defo!I agree with last post, Lambert is not looking for players like Upson, the wrong side of 32, more likely if he signs another centre back it will be a top young defender that he can further improve under his coaching team.
Ryan Bennett (England U21) who we recently signed from Peterborough for 3M has been amazing since he made the first team and is destined to gain full England honours if he continues to improve, he already looks a real talent.We will have higgnbottom plz he's classUpson has offers from China and the USA on the table and doubt he'd turn them down for Norwich who I doubt could afford him anyway or he'd even consider them.Clearly you know nothing about him, Upson is actually a Norfolk boy, and would love to play for his home county team, as for Norwich being able to afford him, are u having a laugh, his resale value is likely less than 1M, its irrelevant anyway because Norwich are not looking to sign players with no sell on value, and if he's so good why can't he get in the Stoke team, way past his best and destined for foreign adventures because they are the only clubs who will pay large money for 32 yr old's these days.
I was surprised Stoke signed him because he has been on the decline for a couple of seasons. Doubt any other premier league club will take him on next season.......I love it when people say a player would love this and that as if they know him personally :-) By the way, Stoke turned down an offer from Everton in January so what were you saying about knowing nothing and no other Prem club wanting him again?If a deal cannot be made for piener, jarvis will go to evertonI think the Norwich fan failed to grasp the fact that they couldn't probably afford Upson's wages and despite his love off all things in the area (lol) they have to actually pay the fella. Nothing to do with re-sale values etc. Bigger clubs want him anyway so academic.Dear oh dear, despite Norwich fans clearly explaining the reasons why Upson won't be getting his pension at Carrow Road, there are still those saying why the club can't or won't get him.

Listen. He's too old. Too expensive. And a Stoke reserve. And if Stoke are paying him so much money that Norwich couldn't afford to match it, then more fool Stoke. Rather a well ran club with sensible financial management than one that pays OTT wages to has beens they are now desperate to get off the wage bill.

Upson, like Robert Green, can love the area all he likes, but he isn't going back there to play football, now or ever.You obviously know NOTHING about Stoke and their finances. Stoke are one of the best run clubs in the country, completely solvent and brought in the likes of Upson and Woodgate on short contracts with Europe in mind. 4 seasons already comfortably in the Prem and that is something that despite getting carried away with already, Norwich in their current state can only dream about. One good season doesn't mean improvement next year etc. by not bringing in quality. Upson like I said has bigger fish to worry about than you lot.Di Matteo is a big fan of Lukaku, and will tell next season's manager not to sell


09 Apr 2012 11:52:51
Pompey fans to buy Pompey the supporters trust say they've had loads of fans putting in round about £1000 and a few people have put a £5000 to 1 million(3)(25)What's that,air miles?Portsmouth shouldnt be allowed to exist.
Strip them of the FA Cup - they cheated to win it.
And liquidate the club09 Apr 2012 14:09:51
Wish you luck, but think its a bit optimistic at the moment according to this..

This is tragic. No one from pompey could afford 1,000, let alone 5,000. If they had that kind of money lying around they wouldn't be living in a hole like Portsmouth!It is this sort of financial ignorance that typifies this "club".
There is not a large support base for Pompey and it is not a wealthy area. Even so, if the supporters raised the 8m they think is needed how on earth would this amount of money finance a club, even if it was in League One?

There are no assets whatsoever and I fear the gullible supporters are being asked to part with money that will disappear as all the creditors money has over recent years.
Statistically, Portsmouth is an area with poor educational achievement but even so, do get real!CAFC Fan - just wishing you well


09 Apr 2012 11:40:08

Tonge - Champioship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans

Soares - Championship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans(6)(11)Sorry but Stoke are getting worse & worse. Dream on!Soars might go to hibsIf you think Wolves will let you have Jarvis for 5 or 6 million then you must be deluded.Moxey does all transfer dealings.we dont need to sell and Jarvis as recently played for England.good luck thou : )As someone who knows the dealings at Stoke rather than guesses like yourself-Wolves will let Jarvis go it seems and Stoke seems his destination. I think Stoke fans are aware who Moxey is by the way and what he does :-) I think you're deluded if you think you'll keep your top players when you go down. Thanks for the 6 points.....As I previously commented on someone else's status, we are Championship bound and have to accept that some players will go and Jarvis to Stoke seems a reasonable transfer, especially if we could get 5m plus a fringe player, we have to be realistic.Very true Wolves fan and Pulis did try to sign Jarvis before but his friend at Gills, Scally was adamant he wouldn't do business with Pulis. Wolves will be in a decent financial state and be able to build after relegation and with the right appointment will come back. Obviously some players will be sold.

Ed002, if you are around, do you know any players that are of interest to Udinese?

AG {Ed002's Note - Kagawa and Rudnevs, but I don't see Kagawa as likely.}(1)(1)


08 Apr 2012 18:42:29
Glenn Roeder tipped to be the man in the driving seat for the Bournemouth job. Not been a great success elsewhere though has he. It definitely won't be O'Driscoll(5)(4)He's Chief scout at VillaWere rumours of an ex Stoke player in the frame as recommended by Pulis. Someone suggested Matteo who Pulis kept on at Stoke and gave some coaching too during the promotion era.Poor old bournemouth a jellyfish has got more backbone than glen roeder


08 Apr 2012 17:55:42
Mourinho to be man city manager next year as he has had enough of politics at Madrid. He wants to renew his rivalry with Ferguson and feels he can produce an all conquering team with city's millions to become the long term master of football.(15)(37)Interesting that you are so close to him that you know what he feels etc..............wishful thinking more like itJust what the clowns in light blue need.....another over inflated ego. Another title for united next year.Mourhinho biding his time for the ManU job, after Madrid where bigger can he go? not Barca or AC. Am sure he will know that he can never manage Utd having managed City which will mean he cn never include the biggest club of all on his CV.No way will he be comming to England, Spain have a much better league now.


08 Apr 2012 16:41:02
Paolo di Canio to be new Brighton boss if Poyet moves on in the summer. West Ham said to be interested in Gus, Villa too have sounded out the Uryquian.(14)(30)


08 Apr 2012 15:40:28
Reading are in advances discussions with Aston Villa over the signing of midfielder Fabian Delph.

Reading have also agreed a fee for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes who will join the promotion hopefuls if Huddersfield fail to win the play-offs this season.(9)(35)Heard this other day aswell and think it would happen even IF we (hudds) went up, would like to think that would pave the way for morrison to sign full time..... dont know how highly thought of he is at yours?That means hell b movingDelph isn't gonna go Villa want him to stayVilla would only ever loan out Delph & with a lacking team already , we can't lose him considering he cost us 8mHe is going to Norwich!!Delph could be a loan, we were linked with him before. McDermott is a long term admirer of Rhodes, scouted him 4/5 times. With Zingarevich in we'll be looking for a couple of marquee signings. Money isn't exactly a problem.Why would Huddersfield agree a fee without all interested bidders invlolved? That sounds like wishfull thinking to me.


08 Apr 2012 14:39:53
Nottingham forest takeover to be completed by the end of this month, with j p McManus the favourite to buy the club.

Could be exciting times ahead at the banks of the trent(11)(15)Total rubbish, Forest are preparing for liquidation due to no saleable assets.
A consortium of Forest fans are trying to buy the club. Most likely outcome of the being fc Forest.Or on the other hand after yesterday it could mean league trips to Torquay!Forest have no chance of liquidation, you pathetic derby fan.
Isn't it about time you lot get over your jealousy of us and tried staying to your own rumours, rather than making rubbish up about your bigger, more successful and better known neighbours?I read the first reply and thought it was a derby fan, but the spelling was very good;)There is not Forest takeover as the club is has not been put back on the market due to Nigel Doughty's will being sorted out and the payments from it to the club.
Forest will need to sell next season anyway to get the club finances back in the black to interest anyone in buying, the club is losing money hand over fist in player wages.


08 Apr 2012 14:25:36
After Jack Wilshere suffers another set back, Arsenal will bid £5m for Clint Dempsey.(14)(18)They can bid 5million but we at fulham will just laugh at themSurely hes got to be worth more than thatNot a Fulham or Arsenal fan but he is worth at least 15mWorth more than 5 Million5 million for Dempsey? Why not bid 25 quid for Rooney while they're at it?Not only is Dempsey worth more then that, but what does Wilsheres injury have to do with them buying a striker.10 mil for demps -


08 Apr 2012 13:56:02
which players you guys think the portsmouth fc will keep for the season 2012/2013 ?

jamie ashdown

david norris
tal ben haim
nwkwo kanu(1)(16)Can't see any of the above willing to play non league, so suggest you start a revised list!Mullins contract expires. Loaned out, won't be coming back.


08 Apr 2012 12:45:41
Tottenham have been keeping watch on Stevenage Youth team player, Spencer McCall, after good scouting reports before the two teams met in the Youth Cup this season.
Spurs are apparently looking to sign the midfielder on a 2 year deal. One to finish his scholarship and one year pro.(4)(2)


08 Apr 2012 12:35:50
Arsenal to sign: Podolski, Holtby, Vertonghen, M'Vila and Sunzu(16)(14)How ever wrote this sh.. is so clueless. Holtby will never ever sign. Not even a slight mention in germans press about it. Sunzu is talking up a move to get a club!!


08 Apr 2012 11:54:26
A few Stoke rumours from hospitality last night.

Jarvis very likely to be a Stoke player and possibly Roger Johnson.

Stoke have two household names on the radar- one a striker is in advanced negotiations. Both from London clubs.

Warnock at Villa almost joined in Jan and Stoke still interested.

A fair few outs in the Summer including Jones,Fuller Sorensen and maybe Etherington plus a few fringe players.(9)(13)I will personally bring Johnson.You really do not want that man.I would turn up drunk if I played for Wolves. Pulis can get the best out of playersYou are very welcome to Warnock!
Eric Lichaj is x200 betterStoke have a very good chance of signing Jarvis and it would be a good buy for them, but Johnson wouldn't get in your team, you already have Shawcross, Huth, Woodgate and Upson who are better centre halves although you may be able to get him at a cut-price fee with the trouble he's caused this season.


08 Apr 2012 10:17:32
Paolo di canio has already started writing his summer shopping list as the club are almost assured of league one football next year, he wants a minimum of 5 players to bolster his squad from this season players he is keen on are: Jamal Fyfield (York City), Marlon Pack (Cheltenham), Harrison Chatting, Jack Midson (AFC Wimbledon), Adebayo Akinfenwa (Northampton), Billy Paynter (Leeds), Paul Mooney (Rhyl), Medy Elito (Dagenham) along with the expected transfers of Jay McEveley and Lee Holmes at the end of the season. A lot will depend on how he sees the future of our out of contract players who are, Callum Kennedy, Nathan Thompson, Mark Scott, Abdul Said, Lander Gabilondo, Phil Smith and Billy Bodin, and if we can release out of favour players such as Mattia Lanzano, Etienne Esajas, Lee Cox and Mehdi Kerrouche, also how he sees the future of Lukas Magera when his loan finishes. Also anticipate a few surprise departures in true paolo style noone knows what to expect !(4)(15)


08 Apr 2012 08:37:28
Norwich to sign: Chris Gunter, Gareth Mcleary, Mackail-Smith, Michael Kightly and George Boyd(6)(39)Where did you hear this north Norfolk digital? (north norfolks best music mix)Mackail-Smith is nowhere near Prem standard.On Alan Partridges radio show I suspect.At least when you post rumours make them believable.
Mackail smith and Boyd not good enough for premier and certainly not good enough for Lambert's ambitions for next season.Ambitions ? surely there only aim is to stay in premiership and nothing elseNorwich's ambition next season goes beyond just staying in Premier league, they want to push on and become an established Premier club and with Lambert in charge he will target a top 10 finish next year, with a shout to get into the Europa League within a couple of seasons.
The Board also want to increase capacity to 35,000 within 3 years providing they stay in Premier league, currently sold out every week, club has a 21,000 cap on season ticket holders because they must keep some tickets for general sale, and also provide required tickets to away team and with approx 2,000 presently on waiting list for season tickets they are confident of filling the extra seats, while increasing the revenue to provide more funds for players squad.
Hell if we play like we did today against Tottenham, we coulod even get a top 10 finish this year.Europe :-) I think some are getting a bit carried away. Great first season but let's see what next term brings.............survival should be a priority let's get real. Think Norwich are becoming the new delusional fans of the Prem by a long shot.Gunter - No thanks, Mcleary - Yes please, Mackail-Smith - Not good enough for what we will be looking at (missed his chance last year), Kightly - Too many injuries maybe, cannot afford a sick note (good player though), Boyd - Championship standard at best.


08 Apr 2012 01:06:34
Stuart Beavon and Emmanuel Ledesma will join Doncaster in the summer, as they look to make a immediate return to The Championship(5)(16)Beavon to join Yeovil if Wycombe go down.


08 Apr 2012 00:57:39
Chris Martin, Simon Lappin, Aaron Wilbraham, Andrew Crofts and Leon Barnett all told they can leave Norwich in the summer. Ward and Whitbread will be staying however.(9)(14)Also add Drury, he will be released when his contract expires


08 Apr 2012 00:54:04
Norwich are to sign Naughton (Spurs) and Bertrand (Chelseas) in the summer for around 3.5m each.
My source works as a scout for a premier league side and confirmed these this weekend(12)(30)Naughton a class act would interest a number of clubs. Bertrand who has been on loan to NCFC a couple of times not worth 3.5m looks limited which is why yesterday 1st PL start.When leicester wanted naughton, tottenhsm wanted 10mI doubt Spurs would sell Naughton, we might get him for another year's loan though.Naughton holds the cards now. With 1 year left on his contract a years loan would not be favourable to Tottenham without him agreeing to an extension first. Either they sell him this season or lose him for nothing the following as i cant see Naughton being happy sitting on the bench behind Walker for his whole career.

If he wants to sign for Norwich it will happen 3.5-4 mil sounds about right.


07 Apr 2012 23:19:37
Aberdeen set to sign barnsley midfielder jim o'brien(3)(16)Have him we will get somebody from rochdale for 10 bob to replace him....

larry grayson to get the boot at huddersfield plus a mass clearout of players after yet another failed promotion bid.we havent a prayer in the play offs.i have to admit to being one of the fans who wanted clark out but we are worse now under larry.i feel sorry for dean hoyle.(4)(16)Well, you gave Larry a fair chance before you turned on him did'nt you! NOT!
You absolutely typify the modern 'fan' dont like football, you dont understand game plans or tactics and you dont do patience, you just want instant wins so you can gob off to your mates about what a successful club you associate yourself with, what a sad act!Larry doesnt have a clue about tactics playing people out of postion.novak is not a midfielder he let higginbottom go before giving him a chance. if he cant see how bad kay is in cm then the next 3 and a half years are going to be hell. hoyle has made a massive mistake should of only given him to end of season to prove himselfLarry hasnt had long i agree, but we arent improving or even standing still we are worse ! i have supported town for 48 years so dont talk stupid about somebody you dont know .i also played at a decent level you keep making silly comments if you like but try and get your facts straight,So YOU, oh knowledgable one, say that "Larry does'nt have a clue about tactics", oh, right then, but i suppose that you consider yourself quite an expert when your full of lager and impressing the 'two pop screamers' (kids) in the pub bar, eh!, regaling them with tales of your expertise of when you got your 8 men to scratch a draw against the 14 players in a match on the local park, ........ask yourself this Mr Expert tactician, if Larry does'nt have a clue then how come he took both Blackpool and Leeds to promotions?!?!?!?!?....accident?, divine intervention? smoke and mirrors?, or just maybe the other clubs were better prepared with better facilities than you (although, i must admit thats hard to believe with Blackpool) grow up man, stop throwing your toys out of the pram just because your club is not presenting you with instant weekly wins, it takes time to build your own team with your own players and to mould them into a unit that plays 'your way', and the worst thing is , that YOU KNOW THIS IS TRUE, you are just impatient and want it all now, so get down there and give the man your backing not your whining, he'll do it for you but just not overnight!Larry can only work with what he's got not his fault LC pack the squad out with mediocre players just cos he could give the man a chance! he needes to spend next 5 games now really tightening up and finding best formation cos top 2 is long gone ( went at carlisle) and be ready for play offs! hopefully sheff wed will finish 2nd cos they destroyed us yestday but wouldn't right us off just yet either think we'd beat dons over 2 games then who knows. agree though novak not a winger roberts and ward on the flanks! bring higginbottom back from tarn!Shut that doorIf Hoyle was going tp fire LC it should of been done a lot sooner, 2/3 of the way through the season is too late for a new coch to change tis team, Grayson hasnt brought anything good to push this team towards promotion, another playoff failure coming up.. HTFC FAN!!Grayson is a poor manager, none of his teams can defend. Hope he stays with the Puppies though - he will take you out of League one, but it will be into League Two!

Peterborough's George Boyd will join Norwich City to link up with former Peterborough team mate Ryan Bennett when his contract expires in the summer(12)(6)Im a Norwich Fan, but even i can see this move will NOT happen, i don't think he's a Paul Lambert kind of signing.Contract does not expire in summer but next summer which is why put in transfer list.I was watching Late Kick off the other night and Peterborough's chairman/owner was on there and said that George Boyd will be leaving as he's turned down a new contract!!George Boyd wont sign a contract extension which leaves only 12 months at end of season, He will cost at least 1mill
