Wolves are leading the race to sign in demand Sheffield United trio Andy Taylor, Jordan Stewart and Ryan France. The "fearsome threesome" are said to be unhappy with their team mate's lack of ability and are eager to test themselves at a higher level.

Radislav Osuch (Artur Boruc's Agent) has confirmed that the Holly Goalie has signed for Spurs. Sad day, will miss the big man but Robbie Keane is coming as part of a player + cash swap deal.

A takeover from 6 six Chinese people will happen paying off the debt from the Glazers and funding many transfers at Old Trafford, expect to see lots of activity this summer as United are to have a mass clearout in summer with Berbatov, Nani, Anderson, Tosic, Foster(if not sold in Jan) all being sold after having proved they can't cut it at Man United, as well as this Macheda, Welbeck, Gibson & Possebon will all loaned out for experience, Vidic will be sold becos he is unsettled at O.T, VDS, Scholes and Neville will all reitre, this will raise around £80m which will be put with the £80m from the sale of Ronaldo and the money which was offered to sign Tevez on a permemant deal which will go towards a new crop of United stars.

SAF will buy Gourcuff as he has strong links with Laurent Blanc, Kjaer as a replacement for Vidic he will partner Evans at the heart of defence, Benzema will be bought Fergie admirers his talent he is young and also unsettled at Real Madrid if he doesn't come Aguero has been offered to United as he feels at Man City and Chelsea he will find it hard to break into the first team and at MUFC he will form a partnership with Wayne Rooney, Angel Di Maria is coming to O.T as a replacement for Ronaldo the deal will see Rodwell and Hugo Lloris will also be bought of them, a possible deal for David Silva has been done as he said it is an honour to be linked with a great club like United, he would have been purchased in summer but didn't want to risk his place at the WC!

The new look United –


Rafael Evans Kjaer Evra

Silva Gourcuff Fletcher/Rodwell Di Maria

"10 Jan 2010 17:08:34
United will be busy in the summer transfer window. News Of The World is claiming SAF is finally ready to cash in Berbaflop and hopes to sign Benzema who Fergie is a big admirer of."

First of all im not doubting what you have said in terms of rumours as i've read it also on the NOTW webiste. anyway NOTW also said that Benzema went to Real for £45 Million Pounds. when infact it was a total of €41 million euros. make of that what you will.

The thing that puzzles me about this is, When United went in for berbatov we bought him for his passing and his ability to hold the ball up (which he does very well), not his scoring ability, although i admit he does need to net more.

Now onto my RUMOURS.
Chelsea – Aguero.
Liverpool – /
Arsenal – maybe a kid. no CDM, CB, CF.
Manchester United – Di Maria ( £16 million + Tosic, Nani 16 month loan deal AND Di Maria loaned back until end of season).

the winter transfer window is going to be a hell of a boring one.

Summer rumours. i have none. nor do you.

Heart Of Midlothian

Hearts are close to signing Rodrigo Defendi. The 23 year old has a an Italian passport and has played for Roma and Tottenham. Sport director Aleksandr Metlitski met agent Christoph Wortmann today to discuss the move and the futures of David Witteveen and Ryan McGowan who have both been deemed surplus to requirements by Csaba Laszlo.
According to my source a Russian club are in serious discussions with Hearts about acquiring vice captain Marius Zaliukas for a seven figure fee. Romanov views 23 year old Defendi as a direct replacement for Zaliukas.


10 Jan 2010 20:30:44
"I'm a student in Dundee and just saw Lee Wilkie walking down the street. Rumour has it he's going to return to his old club, Dundee."

Considering he lives in Dundee anyway – and captains Dundee Utd – it isn't likely he was in Dundee to sign for Dundee...

Anyway, Boyd to sign a new deal with the gers and expect cover brought in for Bougherra with Bougherra himself set to leave in the SUMMER due to the ACON.


10 Jan 2010 20:34:49
Blackpool look set to join the chase for Rotherham striker Adam Le Fondre.

The 23 year old former Rochdale and Stockport striker has been in good form this season scoring 14 goals so far and is looking to return to the North West after failing to settle in Yorkshire.

Peterborough and Scunthorpe Utd are also interested in aquiring his signature, but a return to the North West seems to be the prefered choice for the hitman.

A fee in the reqion of £600,000 has been agreed but personal terms appear to be the sticking point despite Blackpools lofty Championship placing.



10 Jan 2010 20:37:41
Not much movement at Spurs as HR believes his squad is stronng enough, but he will being adding quality not quantity:

Robbie Keane was in Apre Bar in Mere Green in Birmingham Saturday night! My pal went up and asked when are you signing for the villa then? Robbie smiled and said who knows...???


10 Jan 2010 17:54:05
I've just seen Anton Ferdinand seen walking into the main reception at Pride Park. Clough will be a hero if he can finally sort out the back 4 with him at the helm.
Also, Derby are looking to recruit the services of ex defender Youl Mawene from Preston.
Lee Bowyer is a certainty and will be unveiled Wednesday and wear number 36.
Addison is going to stay 100%.


10 Jan 2010 18:15:47

Kenwyne Jones is going nowhere . Steve Bruce has released on the Sunderland website that he came to this club to improve it and make it a top club , not to sell key players and selling KJ would be a big mistake . KJ is going nowhere , expect Kevin Kuyrani to have signed by the next 2 weeks.


10 Jan 2010 18:23:55
I have heard that Rochdale Striker Chris Dagnall could be leaving to join Norwich for around 500k.

Bristol Rovers to sign Bas Savage for 825, 000, the last of the Lambert money after some of it was used on roof repairs for the Bass terrace. Trollope feels Lambert was never properly replaced and feel Savage could give Rovers a new dimension of attack.

Rovers to swap Jo Kuffour for Barry Corr of Swindon.

Extremely funny. Not. If your trying to take the mickey it would help and make it more believable if you got your information right first. Barry Corr plays for Exeter City.

Rovers are however interested in Vincent Pericard and Billy Paynter.

Spurs will be signing only a few players this season depending on sales.
are targets at the moment are
veloso–sporting lisbon–£12 million
sandro–internacionale–£8 million rising to £12mill
srna–shaktar donestk–£6.75 million
huntelaar–ac milan–£10 million
simoa–athletico madrid–bentley+£5million.
jenas–villa or man city–£8 million
dervite–back to france–£2.5 million
bentley–athletico madrid–swap deal
pavluychenko–?–£10–£12 million
keane–?–despite harry saying he's not going £14 million and he will be off faster than you can say goodbye.
hutton–birmingham or cover for united £8million


10 Jan 2010 19:18:56
I'm an owl and have just heard that Lee Grant is off to Tottenham Hotspur on loan with a potential view to signing at tye end of the season.

I've also heard that Mark Viduka has been sounded out about a return to England. He'll be replacing Marcus Tudgay who's expected to sign for Burnley, not Sheffield United for £325, 000.

There's no investment coming in so we're going to have to make money by selling players.



10 Jan 2010 17:17:18
Margarita Pilar Garay–Bret the agent for Torres has been in touch with the top clubs in Europe over the last three months. This is being done for Liverpool as they want to sell to the highest bidder. Liverpool had hoped for a fee simular to Ronaldo however a few teams are a little concerned about the recent lingering injuries. Start reading the financial times and not the red tops for your sports stories.


10 Jan 2010 17:27:26
To whoever wrote this;
10 Jan 2010 14:33:04
Next 1–2 transfer windows.

"Sol Campbell 2 Aston Villa.
Eduardo Arsenal–Man city.
Gouffran Bordeaux–Arsenal.
A.Ferdinand Sunder–Chelsea.
Balotelli Inter–chelsea.
Malouda–chelsea–Man city.
Jose Enrique Newc–Everton.
Berbatov Man Utd– Barcelona.
Bentley– Blackburn–Liverpool.
Agger– Liv–AC Milan.
Barry–Man City–Barcelona.
Ireland–Man City–Tottenham.
Messi Barcelona–Man Utd.
Yobo Everton–Man City."

How could Bentley move from Blackburn to Liverppol when he currently plays for spurs?? and also where are Man Utd gonna get the money to sign Messi? I know this is a rumours only site but c'mon at least try to make them sound plausible, maybe get the correct clubs. anyway, Arsenal certain to sign Lacina Traore, Wenger has counted out most of the realistic targets so don't be suprised if he signs one of Dzeko, Cole, Bellamy, Gignac, the only possibly dead in the water is Chamack, poss in the summer if he will sign a pre–contract, but looks like he could be going to lfc.
Personally I would love to have Bellamy at the emirates but can't see it happening as city don't need to sell, don't think Cole has the quality, Bendtner is better.
These are just my opinions, I don't know arsene Wengers glasses polisher or pat rices pizza delivery man.


10 Jan 2010 17:30:08
To the guy who said the Hoops would sign Andy Dorman and Billy Mehmet and was happy at this, Honestly are you Sniffing Glue. If this was to happen I could guarantee Mowbray will get his books within the month as these two would do nothing to reclaiming the title.. Fact we need a proven goalscorer and not a St Mirren player and that's all they are, we also need 2 centre halfs we have already one acquired with this Dutch Guy. As I stated previous expect Fletcher from Burnley to be approached if the Keane 50/50 doesn't go through also the St Ledger deal if the penny pinching stops and as I stated 4 days ago and which is all set to go through Robson and Flood to Middlesbrough and also Caldwell if he can't get a move to the EPL and Killen away on loan aswel...So if you want a no rubbish transfer ins and outs from Paradise then I will let you know


10 Jan 2010 17:31:43
Stevie ireland and petrov to man city. Dont make me laugh only deal with spuds is you are getting richards and we get huddlestone and some cash.

South Yorkshire News

Sheffield United–Kevin Blackwell has asked Kevin McCabe for money for one signing, even though previously told he will have to sell to buy. His target is none other than Marcus Tudgay from neighbours wednesday, the player is keen and word is new wednesday boss irvine would take £1.25m to enable his signing plans
Sheffield Wednesday–new boss irvine wants to bring Youl Mawene to hillsborough despite his current injury problems. He is also open to selling highly rated keeper Grant with Spurs interested, but only if he can bring in Andy Lonergan as a replacement. Irvine would also like ex blade Michael Tonge on loan but the player is unwilling to make the move.
Barnsley– Mark Robins has pushed owner Patrick Cryan to push the boat out to sign either Adam le Fondre or Billy Sharp, le fondre is the cheaper and more realistic option. Robins also willing to let Jamal Campbell Rice to leave.
Finally Doncaster Rovers, no big signings all monies currently commited to a wage bill which is not sustainable in the long run given very disapointing attendances, although John Ryan won't walk away he is not minded to put any more of his personal fortune into the club until the balance sheet is healthier and more people come through the door.Billy Sharp will NOT be signed permanently even though the player would be open to it.


10 Jan 2010 16:37:51

If i was a betting man;

Burnley to make enquiry into Dave Jones @ Cardiff
Used to dealing with a tight budget'

This could very well happen.

Jones has had a major bust up with Ridsdale, after it was found that he had lied to investors about the tax situation at the club.

I know that Ridsdale has been having private meetings with two potential new managers – will not name names but the first is, like Jones, also a Scouser and recently managed at the same level as Cardiff. The second is a Londoner who built up a once successful London team that has since suffered relegation to the third tier of English football ;)


10 Jan 2010 16:53:44
Just sat in world renowned hotel brand begining with an H and ending in ilton and seen Billy Davies with two other guys who looked very formal and important and a certain philip senderos having a very serious chat.


10 Jan 2010 16:55:06
I know this may shock you all but Ferguson IS going to be making signings this window. He is making a triple swoop on one club. That club is West Ham United. The three players are Valon Behrami, Carlton Cole and Matthew Upson for a combined £30 million. Going the other way as part of the deal will be Nani and Tosic.

Forest will land Cardiff winger Ross McCormack later this week. Billy Davies is a long standing admirer of his fellow Scotsman and will offer him a 3 1/2 year deal.


10 Jan 2010 17:08:34
United will be busy in the summer transfer window. News Of The World is claiming SAF is finally ready to cash in Berbaflop and hopes to sign Benzema who Fergie is a big admirer of.

Maxi Rodriguez to LFC looks 99.9% done, the only thing stopping the signing from happening at the moment is the money issue. Expect this to be cleared up very soon and the signing will be publicly announced by wednesday–ish.

Arsenal are desperate for a striker now. RVP is injured and so is Fabregas although Arshavin is back now. Arsenal have been told they do have the money to spend it's just a matter of Arsene Wenger deciding who he wants. Andre Pierre Gignac is constantly being linked with Arsenal and Sol Campbell is poised to re–join the gunners after Wenger refused to rule out the move from happening.

Chelsea still trying for Aguero but I doubt it's going to happen. How many times does 1 player need to say that he won't be leaving?

I am a close friend of simon grayson of leeds, and i have been told by him that ken bates as given instruction not to sell beckford, no matter what is to happen, beckford will get leeds the goals they need to win the league, and ken believes that the price of beckford does not amount to the price of promotion


10 Jan 2010 14:45:05
Arsenal will definately be signing 19yr old 6"7 Ivorian striker Lacina Traore from Romanian outfit CFR Cluj. Skybet have put odds of 4/6 on him signing this January, don't really see this as our answer to the striker we need, still think we need a Dzeko and a Subotic at the back


10 Jan 2010 14:46:37

A local millionaire has invested in Carlisle United and has granted a spending spree, giving Gregg Abbott £10million but has also been warned that promotion has to be guaranteed within 2 years. Top target is Leeds forward Mike Grella to be partnered in attack by Julio Santa Cruz (the younger brother of Roque) who is currently at Blackburn and is available for 500k after becoming disillusioned with life in Lancashire. Newcastle's Nicky Butt is also a surprise target to help the younger players at Carlisle progress, talk is that Butt and Kavanagh will take over the U18's after the end of the current season. Russell Anderson of Sunderland is set to join after having a 300k offer accepted and he is set to reject offers from Scotland to continue his career in England. Owain Fon Williams is also another target however there is great competition for the talented youngster, but Abbott remains optimistic about signing Williams. Wes Hoolahan is also travelling up to the North West after agreeing personal terms and is set to undergo a medical.


10 Jan 2010 11:58:12
Anyway balls to the prawn sandwiches get to your local non league and watch a proper game with a pie and a pint....and a game with a few englishmen playing..

Whoever said this is completely right. I myself support Man Utd and have done most of my life for family reasons, not through glory hunting. But I prefer to go and watch my local team AFCTU (THE MIGHTY BUCKS) because there is more passion in the game and the prices are actually not ridiculous!
Chelsea – won't sign anyone, Ancelotti doesn't see the point, but may sign a striker as cover for Anelka while Drogba and Kalou are at the ACoN
Utd – Wont sign anyone, lack of funds, Fergie being too stupid to realise what is missing.
Arsenal – Again, probably won't sign anyone, they don't really need to.
Spurs – Again, can't see them signing anyone
City – Well Vieira is a done deal, Ansaldi may be coming in, after that? Don't see anyone else, maybe a good CB?

Any bristol city news please


10 Jan 2010 12:32:19
Nottingham Forest are chasing a winger in the January window. Paul Anderson's ability to play on both wings means they could sign a left or right winger but the preference is for a right winger.

Top of the list is Adam Hamill from Barnsley but Forest are also interested in Peter Whitingham following Cardiff's financial worries and Charlie Adam from Blackpool although the two clubs valuations are miles apart so if it happens it will probably be at the end of the window.


10 Jan 2010 12:41:27

Blackpool will loose Charlie Adam to Middlesburgh. This is a fact by Daryl King up in Scotland. I am a Rangers fan and its nice to see him doing well. I personaly think he should stay where he is but never mind


10 Jan 2010 13:38:02
My Uncle works for a Scottish tabloid and has been informed, with the money Mowbray makes from the sale of Robson and Caldwell, he plans to bring in Jos Hooiveld and make a double swoop for St Mirren pair Andy Dorman and Billy Mehmet. These players should sure up the defence, give the hoops a goal threat from midfield and a target man up front, that we need to reclaim the title back....MON THE HOOPS!

MAX TIMBO (In the know!!!)

I am working at the Ramada Hotel in Derby and Miles Addison has just walked in with a 3 man entourage looking very official. I heard the manager telling the day staff to prepare the Vista Suite for the A.M Booking. Name of the people booking the suite??? Nottingham Forest FC. Looks like Miles is off down the A52.

Barnsley F.C. have announced they are set to sign Hannover 96 midfielder Jacek Krzynówek on a half–season loan. Also Franck Songo'o is set to sign on a half–season loan from Real Zaragoza with the option for a permanent move in the summer.

Southampton news.

Southampton will sign Coventry's £300,000 rated defender Elliot Ward on Monday morning before the squad head out to Spain for a training camp to escape the weather conditions in the South.

Adam Lallana will sign a contract extension before the end of the month, keeping him at the club until the summer of 1014.

Nicola Cortose will meet with Alan Pardew at the end of the season to discuss whether they will appoint a Director of Football to work along side Alan Pardew.

Meanwhile defender Chris Perry has said he has no intention of retiring at the end of the season, either seeking an extension on his current contract at St.Mary's which ends in the summer or he may be forced to look elsewhere.


10 Jan 2010 10:59:22
Burnley are considering asking Nottingham Forest if they can talk to Billy Davies. Although Davies' premier league record at Derby County is amongst the worst starts of all time it is widely accepted that he was limited by the club's board. His record at Preston speaks for itself and his current developemnt of Notts Forest from East Midland no–hopers to serious championship contenders has started to raise eyebrows all over the football world.

A meeting on Friday night to discuss their current shortlist was cut short as the Burnley chairman and directors were mesmerised by Forest's demolition of West Brom. The style of Forest's football was remniscent of Davies 'Brazilian Days' at Preston and the board is willing to forget the Derby episode and feel he can add some grit to Burnley's fragile team and keep them up.


10 Jan 2010 11:35:10
Schalke's Kevin Kuranyi is being linked with a move to the Prem', a big CF, could he join Arsenal?? If the price is right he could be a satisfactory replacement for van Persie, perhaps just a short term loan until summer.
Campbell looks likely to come in, as cover for cover if Senderos leaves which looks likely. Although doubtful I think the rumours regarding Mauro Zarate are wonderful, he is claimed to be unhappy with lazio, is technically very talented, young.... so, who knows?!
The P–Meister


10 Jan 2010 11:40:47
At last Fergie has realized that Berbatov is not the answer for United and he will be offloaded in the summer to whoever willing to pay in the region of 15–20mil..his replacement will be either Benzema or Aguero and in the both case Fergie will offer Berbatov in the deal.. Nani will be sold too. Most probably to Fiorentina in another swap deal which might see Jovetic signing for United. Sir Giggs' replacement will be either Silva or Di Maria. and Foster will be sold in this January to the team whoever willing to pay in the region of 5 mil. Hugo Lloris will be the man who will succeed VDS at the end of the season...


10 Jan 2010 11:42:59

Miguel Veloso is set to shun Spurs in favour of Fiorentina. Maxi Rodriguez is very close to signing for Liverpool.


10 Jan 2010 02:30:31
Am from Donegal an i was walking down the street an i seen ronaldinho, deco, rooney I think they are signing for my local club Finn Harps what an achievent this would be for my club. Would people cop themselves on an stop posting sightings of players at different area's of England & Scotland when u obviously didnt. If you havent a decent rumour to post then stop posting because you either had a wet dream thinking of these players or your either mentally . An it's hard 2 believe rumours when the person posting them can't even spell the players name's.
On to my predictions for the transfer market an I state these are RUMOURS not exactly all going to happen.
Roque santa cruz to espanyol loan
Dzeko to Arsenal/chelsea(scum)
Steven Defour to Man united
Yaya Toure to Man United
david Villa to Man United summer
Jenas to Aston Villa
Babel to Birmingham
Shawcross to United Summer
Coleman to Championship team loan
Wilshere to Wesh Ham Loan
Torres to Big team prob happen in the summer
Aguero to Man City
Hugo Lloris to Man United
Thanks Ronnie

Addison, Hunt, Kilbane, Beckford


10 Jan 2010 03:13:28
My mates Uncle is Tony Mowbray so u can rely on me for celtic rumours

Celtic are close to agreeing a fee with Boro for Caldwell and Barry Robson.

Barry Robson will be replaced by the young Bosian Semir Stilic he currently plays for Lech Pozan in Poland.

You also might of heard that Celtic had a young Belarus Defender on trial called Verkhovtsov but he didn't impress Tony are the Coaching staff and they didn't like his aditude.

Caldwell will be replaced by the Norway international Jos Hooiveld from AIK Stockholm but he is also wanted by Fulham he will cost around 2 MILLION for his services.


10 Jan 2010 01:52:35
Derby will recall on loan keeper Lewis Price from Brentford and send Steven Bywater in his place.


10 Jan 2010 01:52:49
Celtic latest rummour's,

Aiden mcgeady will NOT be leaving in the january window
( FACT ) as birminghanm offered the £10 million that the celtic board put on him to steer people away only to see birmingham offer the amount and then end up getting told that the wonder boy was not forsale for any price untill they say so!!!

Scott mcdonald....If your hear that this fella is leaving celtic in the january window it means only one thing....robbie keane is relacing him....

Gary caldwell and barry robson are on their way to boro....willo flood, chris killen and mark wilson could be following them if boro come up with the right price

New striker, new defender ( or two ) and new midfielder will be brought in within the january window.

Tony mowbray will have a team in place soon good enough to challenge teams in europe after the spl title is won.


10 Jan 2010 01:55:09
Brentford's F A Cup Third Round tie with Doncaster Rovers, which is set to be postponed for a second time on Tuesday will be switched to Wembley Stadium to avoid a third postponement and to also cater for the large expected away following.


10 Jan 2010 02:04:10
RIGHT first of all T MAG. Newcastle arnt signing beckford from Leeds. He's signing for either sunderland or fulham. Why would he sign for Newcastle when ur a mediocre championship club with no money. Secondly all you Birmingham fans that think your the new Chelsea or something. Stop spreading ur lies about signing every player on the planet. Your not an attractive proposition to the top players. You've done really well this this season. If u scrape into Europe them maybe the players u keep blabbing about on here might b willing to join u. Steve Bruce to land figuroa and Guy demel to sort out our full back problems. Bently and Adam Johnston for the wings and possbly Kevin kurayni providing he lowers his 130k pw wage demands. Of kurayni signs expect kenwyne Jones to leave to either Birmingham or stoke for 12 mill. Chance Bruce will see beckford as a back up if kurayni bid fails. Newcastle for playoffs this season. Forest champions west brom 2nd. HOWAY THE LADS.



10 Jan 2010 00:18:11
Birmingham City are keen on Nicola Zigic and Napoli's midfielder Hamsik.The Hamsik deal is reported as being "fairly close" by the Italian media–and will cost around 8million euros, plus 28k per week.Zigic initially on loan, if the Chucho Benitez deal can be finalised, as they have 2 loanees already.


10 Jan 2010 00:27:07

10 Jan 2010 01:04:27
Any true rumours of chelsea fc


10 Jan 2010 01:10:24

RDM has found out he does not have a premiere ship team after the disaster against Forest. He wants a goalkeeper who can command his box and an experienced midfielder who can break teams down. He will say good bye to Koren and Tex and bring in a loan midfielder from Chelsea and Juventus. He will rush Miller back as he does not have a forward who can score enough.


10 Jan 2010 01:25:04
I was at the cardiff game and the rumour in the stadium was joe ledley was going to celtic(no idea if its true but im a celtic fan so i hope it is)
