Newcastle United have been rocked by the request of their captain, Fabricio Coloccini, to leave the club during the January transfer window.This is in some of tomorrows papers

Yeah heard that been talked about in the city, and seen it on web



10 Jan 2013 23:27:22

Andres Townsend to join Palace on loan till the end of the season



10 Jan 2013 22:53:55
Bolton look set to secure a double swoop of middlesbrough players mustapha carayol and Rhys Williams .
The out of favour winger carayol has only started 4 games for the borough and hasn't featured in the squad since October and will be sold for £100,000.

The Australian international Williams is being released by the club due to loanee Ishmael Miller taking his place in the starting lineup. It is said that while miller is a more technically gifted and better player, Williams still has the ability to be a potent attacking force. Bolton are expecting their £200,000 offer to be enough to sign him

Never heard such a crazy rumour, lets clarify, mustapha carayol is a favorite among fans and manager alike, he hasnt featured because he has been injured, and as for williams, he's a centre half! and bolton bid 6 million for him 2 years ago and it was rejected!



10 Jan 2013 22:20:07
millwall to approach lee camp after he was told he could leave city ground .



10 Jan 2013 22:03:20
Gunnarson of cardiff to ipswich

Do you think he would leave champians elect to battle relegation. dream on mate arron's very popular with the cardiff faithful

Would be nice, but can't see cardiff selling.



10 Jan 2013 22:08:40

Antony Kay to return to Barnsley season long loan



10 Jan 2013 21:42:37
hope powell to be next barnsley fc manager

Why not- that's not as daft as it sounds- {Ed003's Note - What's daft about it ? }

I'll go with that, about time some club showed some mettle and tried something different. After all 90% of the names so far have a cv that contains mainly failure. If its only a rumour lets push it enough to maybe make the board hear it!!



10 Jan 2013 21:16:05
Ricky Holmes done deal with Southend, attempting to agree personal terms.



10 Jan 2013 21:09:30
Ryan Dickson the LB at Southampton is set to move to Bradford City

This rumour is true

He's better than that - would hope he could go to a mid-table championship team.

Good luck to him wherever he ends up.



10 Jan 2013 21:08:15
Cody Mcdonald to join Northampton and link up again with Bayo.

He is on his way to Gillingham, the only stumbling block is that we want to loan him and they want to buy. Get rid I say. But it is Gillingham I'm afraid. Don't waste your time.



10 Jan 2013 21:02:34
Ryan Dickson is set to join Bradford City from Southampton



10 Jan 2013 20:57:27
Wigan striker Nouha Dicko is the subject of a £300k bid from Peterborough United.

Sunderland are set to bid for right back John Stones (Barnsley).



10 Jan 2013 20:38:24
Southampton and West Brom could miss out on Sergi Roberto, with Espanyol the front-runners to take the Barcelona starlet on loan

Southampton have no interest in loaning players, we have our own quality youth players to use.



10 Jan 2013 20:36:49
Burnley make enquiry for Reading's Simon Church.



10 Jan 2013 20:35:43
Charlton are trying to lure Striker Marvin Sordell back to London on loan from Bolton

The trouble with Sordell is that he can only play 30 minutes. A 90 minute match is too long without being able to Tweet something.



10 Jan 2013 20:27:04
Leyton Orient have made enquiries about 2 players.

One of them is believed to be Oldham Athletic striker Robbie Simpson.

While goalkeeper Ryan Allsop is expected to leave to O's for Bournemouth in the next few days.



10 Jan 2013 20:18:46
Brian McDermott mentioned Reading are close to signing a player with Premiership experience, and sources say this could be Paulo Ferreira from Chelsea for £1.5m. He can play both left and right back, great utility player and has played more than 100 times for Chelsea. Hope it's true!

10 Jan 2013 20:39:17
I've heard it's Titus bramble

If either of those are true i'll cry, both appalling players

I also hope it's true, would do no damage to you avoiding relegation, kind regards, Saints fan.



10 Jan 2013 19:36:09
Brede Hangeland could be set to join Sunderland to be paired with Kader Mangane.Virgil van Dijk and Chris Samba are the other options if Hangeland doesnt come off.
Also James Milner, Tom Huddlestone, John Guidetti to sign.

Why would Fulham sell our captain to an evenly matched or lesser team?



10 Jan 2013 18:56:57
Kadar Mangane is officially signing for Sunderland on loan with option to buy end of season



10 Jan 2013 19:00:07
Oldham to sign striker Craig Westcarr until the end of the season following his release from Chesterfield.

24year old midfielder Kabore from Marseille linked with West Ham and Stoke

Just what Stoke need, another midfielder.



10 Jan 2013 16:49:33
hi ed any news on barnsleys new manerger {Ed003's Note - nothing new mate sorry}

Flicker in charge saturday, no news expected until mid week, next.

Heard it could be hope powell, no idea how this is possible {Ed003's Note - different shower rooms I suppose}



10 Jan 2013 18:16:48
Sevilla President Jose María del Nido has flown to London with a view to selling star striker Alvaro Negredo.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle all linked, I would love to see him at the Toon but think his most likely destination is Spurs, with their pursuit of Leandro Damiao breaking down. Chelsea have just signed Ba, ruling them out and Arsenal look like they have enough up front, with Walcott looking likely to sign and wanting to play more down the middle. I would say Newcastle could sign him, but with an asking prize of 18 million Euros for a 27 year old, I don't want to be laughed off the site.


Spurs yes, Newcastle-no chance



10 Jan 2013 18:08:16
charlton want marvin sordell on loan until the end of the season.



10 jan 2013 17:42:33
my daughter works at the de vere hotel in southampton and she has great news to report that astori's agent has booked in again to spend another two night's here in southampton, and one more name, this has got me so excited! mr barbosa ! phillippe coutinho's agent has also requested a room for tomorrow night!

big deals boys big deals

I would love to believe you but... Well we'll see.

I hope this is true

Sounds good to me

Awsome, loving the inside goss there mate. Glad you've got her organised to do the snooping for us

The other day i posted that astori's agent booked in there for a night last week. Ie with a new poster saying he's booked in for another stay would suggest surely there is truth in it!!
Fingers crossed his signing comes from these rendezvous.
Davey Boy.

Erm I don't think your daughter should be sharing who is staying at her hotel with the public as exciting as it is

It would be unreal if we pulled off these two deals. In the past I'd have dismissed this kind of rumour but the signing of Ramirez really was a ground shifter for Saints. We mean business. It wouldn't suprise me if NC landed the pair of them!

Hmmmm.. we will see.. I like the drop of Barbosa there but you could have Googled that :-P

We are moving up in the world :D

This is not true. As of last October, players agents (from other clubs) are being put up in any number of secret locations outside of the city to stop things like this being written.
If these people are coming and going the meetings will not be in St Marys or staplewood and they will not even step foot into the city itself, only the very far outskirts. It was a point made in a high end board meeting last summer when news got out about J Rod. Statements like the one above are never to be believed.


I would love this to be true! Please please get at least 1 of these players, rather Astori as he is a cb!

Very much doubt this, would be 2 great signings but unreliable source.



10 Jan 2013 17:20:25
Lee trundle set to join rotherham on loan

To old a past it no thanks



10 Jan 2013 17:18:14
Steven Gillespie could be set for a return to Cheltenham after Fleetwood signed Kidderminster striker Jamille Matt.



10 Jan 2013 17:10:10
After injuries to Gera and Dorrans still being sold, WBA will look into the possibility of signing young English talent with Steve Clarke and the Board looking towards the future of the club and beyond this season. Clarke feels wba have already done enough to stay up and so will sign Redmond this window as well as playing Craig Dawson more often and will also sign Huddlestone on loan with a view to permanent at the end of the season. Steve Clarke also very interested in Danny Graham although the price tag is putting him off he is willing to send Odemwinge the other way.

Wolves are looking at hearts defender Webster.



10 Jan 2013 17:06:05
Craig gordan is training with Middlesbrough at rockliffe park close to his family home to keep match fitness no contract has or is likely to be offered though and



10 Jan 2013 17:04:28
Swindon have turned down what is reported as a £300,000 bid by local rivals Oxford Utd for defender Aiden Flint.
They were told to come back with a realistic offer

And where would Oxford get that type of money pray tell, Town have however turned down a bid from Bradford for the same player

No way more like 50k. And he won't go anywhere as we're short at the back.

10 Jan 2013 22:42:52
Popular theory that Flint is going. No he isn't. He is the only defensive cover STFC have right now. O.U would love to have £300k, and if they did they would probably spend some of it on a decent striker, and the rest of it on ground rent to Kassam.



10 Jan 2013 16:46:40
Alhassane 'Lass' Bangoura, a right winger of Rayo Vallecano is taking the eye of Swansea City, with Michael Laudrup seeing him as another great attacking player to add to Swansea's firepower going forward.



10 Jan 2013 16:40:27
bornemouth ins
bartly loan
cornick done

bournemouth outs
buchel to barnet 130k

If we had 130k to spend I'd hope it was spent on a goalscorer. We haven't.

We're are barnet gunna find 130k



10 Jan 2013 15:43:45
Aden Flint has turned down a move to Bradford in favour of a move to Cheltenham. The defender is set to sign on Friday.

Swindon rejected an enquiry, so I highly doubt he will be leaving.

Di cannio has stated he isn't for sale, so not true.

Flint attended Cheltenham's game with Everton on Monday.



10 Jan 2013 15:55:49
Ronan Murray has gone to Plymouth from Ipswich till the end of the season (loan). Bryher Pilgrim



10 Jan 2013 15:57:15
Rumours circulating that Norwich are looking to sign Per Skjeland on a free transfer this january, after talks between Newcastle and the player broke down.
Hughton was looking at him when in charge at Newcastle aswel so could be possible?



10 Jan 2013 15:51:22
Scott Dann is the latest player to be interesting Queens Park Rangers. Aaron Lennon, Jonas Ollsen, Peter Crouch and Lassana Diarra also reportedly on the radar.

It will be hard for QPR to attract big names in football due to their league position.



10 Jan 2013 15:48:02
Dani Pacheco to Leeds Season Loan VTP bit disappointed really, Neil

Michael Appleton will leave Blackpool, it may not be just yet but he will leave for Blackburn with Paul Ince taking over as manager and Steve Thompson as his Assistant - this also means Tom Ince will see the remainder of the season out at Blackpool

KO don't you think its time to leave blackpool, you got compo off ian now appy. So why not leave now with your money and let someone who cares about the club or just a proper owner/chairman that runs the team correctly.

We need to have an owner who actually provides the club with funds to buy players when needed. Or else we can say goodbye to the top half of the table.. Let alone the play-offs.



10 Jan 2013 15:24:14
Bournemouth are keen on signing young Wigan midfielder Fraser Fyvie on loan until the end of the season.



10 Jan 2013 15:23:09
Doncaster Rovers are set to approach three managers and their clubs in the next few days in order of a potential interview.
A surprise name in the hat is the caretaker boss at Barnsley. David Flitcroft is in talks with the Oakwell club to be their new boss but Rovers are interested in 'Flicker' after initially impressing over the phone.
Another boss interesting chairman John Ryan is Ian Hendon. The 41 year old is interested in getting back into full time management after being at West Ham as a coach since 2011.
The final name on the shortlist is Mansfield manager Paul Cox. The 41 year old has impressed Ryan over the last few months with his battling spirit.



10 Jan 2013 15:25:42
Jon Stones will complete his move to Wigan within the next 48 hours. The transfer fee will be 2 million

How sure are you of this, I know Latics have been linked with him for a while?

10 Jan 2013 14:56:04
DJ Campbell signing for Palace

That can't be right as campbell said he is going to talk to redknapp next week over his future and if redknapp wants him he will stay at QPR



10 Jan 2013 15:16:10
Reading have made a bid for former Portsmouth striker Erik Huseklepp who plays in Norway for Brann.

I doubt it.

Wasn't that good at Portsmouth or Birmingham, wouldn't cut it in the prem.



10 Jan 2013 14:27:37
Liam Fontaine has a decision to make after Sheffield United are toutering him, if a deal is to be complete it is worth to be £375,000.

Albert Adomah, however, is not being eyed by the big clubs, it is all false information. Wigan were looking at him but due to the African Nations cup, a deal will not be made.

Liam Kelly is in Bristol, and a deal is to be made today or tomorrow if he can agree a contract with a wage less that £5.5k a week due to the new policy set by Steve Lansdown. If a deal cannot be agreed, Derby are heard to make a bid matching Bristol City's offer.

Frank Feltscher is to pen a loan deal before Saturdays game due to the failure to sign Neil Danns. The club need a creative attacking midfielder.

Bristol City currently have a bid for Kyle McFadzean but Crawley Town are not going to accept £500,000 for the player who is on a long contract. Bristol City could end up pulling out of the race for the signing. However, if a deal is agreed then the signing could be done in the next week.

That all sounds realistic. We do need to move Fonts on

Sheffield United have got NO money so that deals a non starter, unless of course Harry Maguire is being sold

Sheffield United will not buy him. We do have money when we need it, but we only buy when we think we have a bargain and when we think it is worth it. However I doubt Bristol City would sell him either as he has made 25 appearances this season alone. Danny Wilson didn't even sign him when he was manager of Bristol City. This happened after. This transfer will not happen. We will not splash that much cash when we have better defenders available if need be. We might sign him on loan whilst Collins and Hill are out, but we will NOT buy him.




10 Jan 2013 14:16:42
Irish side Cliftonville have recieved three offers for their hitman Liam Boyce.
The 21 year old will hold talks with Turkish giants Galatasaray, Scottish side Inverness and Reading.



10 Jan 2013 14:01:47

After completing the loan signing of Elliot Ward from Norwich, Nottingham Forest hope to confirm Deryk Boyata on loan from Man City by the end of today. they are also hoping to tie up another loan with opinion of perminant deal for Alan Hutton from Villa and sign Chris Burke from Birmingham for around 2m before the weekend. Forest are also in talks with up to 4 keepers as new number 1 as they try to sell Lee Camp for cash before he leaves in the summer on a free

Lee Camp has been allowed to leave the club now, FREE.

Why would blackstock drop a division when he's playing regular football



10 Jan 2013 14:41:50
Everton are in talks with Anderlecht defender Bram Nuytinck over a loan deal to Goodison Park.



10 Jan 2013 14:39:57
Ipswich News- Goalkeeper has become a priorty with Henderson going back, Camp & Gordon both available on a free are being looked at by McCarthy / Connor.

Talk of a bid for George Boyd is way of the mark, Noel Hunt fee is still being negotiated with Reading however valuation is miles apart.

God love Noel, but as hard as he works he just isnt quiet upto it in the premier league. But a great pro, will do a great job for ipswich if this is true. He would go will the best wishes of all the fans i would say.
I still remember him squaring upto Ashley Williams in the playoff final, classic. "you wana fight!"

Lium briddcut is looking to move to either reading or Norwich most likely reading as it is nearer his home were he is settleted at and he is friends Hal robson kanu and karacan.

LB would be an excellent signing for Reading. Right age, right attitude, right timing, right move for both club and player. Yes please.



10 Jan 2013 14:35:34
middlesbrough are set to loan luke williams to shrewsbury as a sweetner so that they can sign there winger jon taylor

Leeds scout was in corperate seating at Valle Parade on Tuesday . . . he won't even have to move house then ;)

10 Jan 2013 23:24:24
why would wells leave now when he's the chance of playing at wembley. Also wells signed a new contract in the summer which as a release clause of 1.2millon pounds.



10 Jan 2013 13:13:36
Notts County agree a fee with Luton to sign midfielder Andre Boucaud on a permanent deal according to the Nottingham paper

Boucaud, 28, has spent five months on loan at Meadow Lane, playing 23 games.

This is true, just has to agree terms.



10 Jan 2013 13:10:11
Tottenham's highly rated young Spanish midfielder Yago Falque is a loan target for Gianfranco Zola at Watford

I hope so he would be a great signing.

Why would he be a great signing?
he went on loan to southampton last season, got subbed off at half time on his debut and then failed to appear for the rest of the season.



10 Jan 2013 12:17:23
Walsall set to renew interest in Ben Parker and have made an audacious bid to sign Darrius Vassel.

Wigan Fulham and stoke looking to buy Dave Symington for £750k

That's a new name to me, who does he play for? {Ed001's Note - Carlisle isn't it?}



10 Jan 2013 12:48:41
Its all over greek media that the greek international striker Mitroglou is to sign for Celtic for 3.5m euro have you guys heard anything?


Celtic John
Cyprus {Ed007's Note - I would be surprised if CFC paid that for a player who is out of contract in the summer.}

10 Jan 2013 15:37:48
Makes sense as Hooper is off to Norwich



10 Jan 2013 13:41:32
Tom Pope to Millwall for 500k-600k

Love to see this great goal scorer exactly what we need at the den

Where has the roumer come from anyone? have they made a bid or just speculation

I hope so but his manager and chairman have said he is not for sale?

Be a great addition a good player.sign him up! Coyl

Hope so, looks like the CF we need



10 Jan 2013 13:42:04
Jack Butland's move to Southampton looks to be gathering pace as Birmingham are believed to have accepted offer of around 5 million + Kelvin Davis on loan for the rest of the season.

Isn't Davis going to retire at the end of the season?

I for one will be disappointed if we don't get the CB situation resolved first, must be our main priority.

Wishingful but not happening. Reality check please our club will let us know soon who we have signed.

Rather we splashed out on a CB or two but he would be a great signing. We'll have to cough up more than 5 mill though!

We would not send Kelvin Davis on loan. He is our club captain. If anything it will be Gazzainiga, to build his confidence and experience



10 Jan 2013 13:27:00
is there any truth to kenwyne jones and swansea city rumour ? {Ed024's Note - It could all depend on Graham - if he goes, which might be a bit more unlikely after the first leg result, then Jones would be a possible replacement. Graham apparently interesting Sunderland and Newcastle, both clubs could do with additional firepower and Graham is a North East lad.}

Cheers mate thank you

I don't see why Kenwyne Jones is being mentioned at all - can't see what he offers ahead of the likes of Graham, Schecter and Moore other than a bit of height - FWDs at Swansea need to be really hard workers across the pitch and not sure I see that in him - though Stoke play a very different brand of football of course. DG is unlikely to move until the summer IMO and so can't see it happening - especially not at the sort of prices Stoke want ...



10 Jan 2013 13:21:26
Per Ciljan Skjelbred will sign for Norwich next week from Hammburg!



10 Jan 2013 12:53:55
Reading are interested in signing Fulham duo Steve Sidwell and Chris Baird

I'm really biased i admit it, but i still really rate Steve Sidwell. To see him back in midfield down the madstad would be brilliant.
Someone to impose themselves in midfield, yes please!

RFC have said Baird is not a player they are looking at, they did have interest but not any more.
Wouldn't rule out Sidwell though.

Reading enquired about Baird but nothing has been taken further, and not likely to be taken further, i;ve heard nothing of the Sidwell rumour, also been told that the Welbeck rumour is also not true

Unlikely. They're both in the first team aren't they?

10 Jan 2013 17:59:16
No chance



10 Jan 2013 12:53:26
Kevin Phillips seen at brunton park set to sign

Carlisle looking to sign a prem defender and striker on loan for rest of the season



10 Jan 2013 12:35:39
Bristol City are to have a very busy month.


Joe Edwards will join Yeovil for an undisclosed amount.
Sam Baldock is in talks with Crystal Palace
Mathew Bates & Mark Wilson will be released
Joe Bryan will join Colchester United on loan
Bobby Reid will go back to Cheltenham Town
Liam Fontaine is wanted by Swindon Town and Sheffield United

Liam Kelly
Stephen McManus if wages are finally agreed
George Saville & Adam Phillip on loan

If Joe and Bobby leave on loan i'd pressume Yeovil would have first refusal or would at least have the players offered to them.

Bobby Ried will not be coming to Cheltenham.
He sat on the bench last season, and we have enough Midfielders.

Bobby Reid hardly played at Cheltenham in his first loan spell i can't see why we'd have him back.

Guess loads and some will come off i guess bates and wilson will go, and mcmanus will only come in if we can't get others due to his higher wage

Swindon don't have any more money to spend on players.

You guys got a quality centre half coming you heard it here first



10 Jan 2013 12:34:21
Gillingham will NOT sign Cody Mcdonald with the wages being the stumbling block.

Not the wages Coventry only want to loan and the gills want to buy. I want shot of him so let him go

They should let us have Cody then.Coventry never play him, and we would appreciate him.



10 Jan 2013 12:27:05
Bordeaux's scintillating striker Youn Gouffran looks like joining QPR as Harry Redknapp looks to bring in a frontman to partner Djibril Cisse to help ease an injury crisis that has seen both Zamora and Johnson laid up for the foreseeable future.
It is a deal benefitting all concerned with Guaffran desperate to move across the channel and prove himself at a higher level.
Gouffran, fitting the criteria of a Redknapp signing to a tee. He gets bums off seats and is a snip due to his circumstances. (contract expires in summer)
Redknapp hopes to get his man for around £3m.

QPR linked with everyone and for big money too

What happens if they go down? Amongst the speculation there appears to be no mentiuon of this. They already have a wage bill which is more than their annual turnover and unless they sell players, then this will only add up to a huge problem for them. I smell another Portsmouth, West Ham, Southampton (any common link here?) Very dangerous business model, look how far Villa have fallen which is all down to buying up old British players and sticking them on ridiculous contracts and not being able to shift them on when they can't be bothered anymore

Typical Redknapp signing is past it, not getting games and costs a fortune in wages, ask Pompey!



10 Jan 2013 12:12:11
Jon Taylor and Grandison set to leave Shrewsbury during this transfer windows, the club has received offers for both.

Shrewsbury were looking at signing two irish strikers but this seems to have cooled and GT has moved onto other targets.

Shrewsbury were never interested in the two irish strikers, you don't have a clue.

Non starter Grandison does not want to leave, Taylor maybe

Jon taylors agent has been at crystal palace to get the deal done and will be completed after saturdays game



10 Jan 2013 11:54:48
Nicolas Anelka is training with PSG, and a 6 month contract is in the pipelines, as he and Didier Drogba are unhappy with life in China. Drogba is expected to move to Italy this month.

James Tomkins' move to Newcastle will finally be sealed next week, after the 'Hammers' sign Sylvain Distin from Everton. The Tomkins deal has been touted for years.

No chance of distin going to west ham just signed a new deal at Everton

Sylvia's distin won't be leaving Everton his own words



10 Jan 2013 11:47:51
William Gallas will seal his move to QPR tomorrow, but will not feature in Saturday's game against Spurs due to a niggling injury.

Heard this as well..
But next week after the Spurs game...

Another pensioner who will demand huge wages. If QPR do go down, I fear for their future

Reports in Spain that there are a few unnamed clubs looking at taking Michu back to Spain.

Surely he'd want to play for one with a name?

jay o'shea to sign for the spireites in the next 24 hrs on a 2.5 yrs contract and boa morte end of the season

Bristol City striker jon Stead has been told a new contract deal will not be offered to him. his contract runs out at the end of the season. there has been alot of talk about where he might go. i think he will stay at ashton gate untill he goes on a free. also Cole Skuse will sign a new contract with city.
fontaine and albert to be gone in this window

I can confirm that Jon will not be offered a contract to stay, Bristol City look to lower there wage bill and Stead is seen to have one of the highest, also City are trying to recruit younger players on cheaper wages to help cut some losses.

Leicester are understood to be interested in Stead.

Alberts in Africa for the whole month so highly doubt he would think about his future until at least the summer! Jon Stead in my eyes can go as long as we sign another striker, he's not as good as taylor in my opinion and isnt a championship player anymore!



10 Jan 2013 11:27:05
Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has spoken openly about wanting to sign the Shrewsbury winger Jon Taylor. It is thought a fee has been agreed between the two clubs believed to be of around £350,000 plus a sell-on fee and success. Shrewsbury will also get £50,000 if Taylor contributes to them getting into the Premiership.



10 Jan 2013 11:18:44
Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner has spoken openly about wanting to bring in a striker for his side. It is thought to be Port Vale's Tom Pope and if that fails, he will try to bring in Nottingham Forest's Dexter Blackstock.

Hasn't blackstock joind Ipswich on loan already?

It'd be easier to list the teams Pope ISN'T being linked to this transfer window.

10 Jan 2013 19:24:11
haha dexter blackstock is a first team player and if he would leave forest won't be a low league team.

Southend United are in talks with Dagenham & Redbridge defensive midfielder Michael Spillane. A deal could be struck by early next week, however, The Daggers will want money for the former Brentford player, and due to this, the deal may break down. (Source: The Echo - Local South Essex Newspaper)

On the other side of the country, Onismor Bhasera, (a Zimbabwe international & Plymouth's highest wage earner) is interested in a move to Roots Hall. Blues will face competition from Shrewsbury, Northampton, Rotherham & Walsall over the left-winger's signiture.

Two other players on Paul Sturrock's radar are Aldershot striker Danny Hylton & Free Agent Craig Westcarr. Hylton is said to be in dispute over his contract and wants a move away from the Recreation Ground, while Westcarr has been released by Chesterfield following a successful loan spell at Walsall. Although, Walsall are said to be after Westcarr on a permanent basis following his loan.


Kane Ferdinand is keen on a loan return to Southend from Peterborough. The young midfielder has made 17 appearances for The Posh so far this season.

Lee Trundle has been linked with a host of league 2 clubs after Preston North End have made him availiable for loan. Interested clubs are said to be: Accrington, Torquay, Southend, Exeter, Chesterfield & Port Vale. The striker scored 78 goals in 146 appearances for Swansea City between 2003-2007.

Former Torquay defender Guy Branston, who has recently been on loan at Bristol Rovers from Aldershot is an admirer of Southend Boss Paul Sturrock and has said he would like to play for him in the not too distant future. This could trigger a move to Southend, either in the January Transfer Window or in the summer.

There is only palace and ipswich who have spoke to the club about jon taylor fact! but no deal is done yet

Heard that trundle and ogrady are in talks with rotherham at the min

Can't see Vale being interested in Trundle, there's already enough firepower in the squad. Adams is looking at another defender.

flint/rithchie/benson.cox to depart Swimdon
Swindon have initially turned down bids for Rithie and Flint/Cox to go back to Oxford on a free and then Rooney to Gillingham
No incomings to swindon but extensions to Hollands and martin just may be on the cards

Matt Ritchie is not going anywhere, and that was a statement from him after the game on Saturday. Flint will not be going anywhere soon as he is the only cover we have for defence, and Cox, well O.U manager Chris Wilder has stated publicly that Cox was NOT returning to O.U after his loan expired.
Hollands and Martin have already had their loan periods extended, and further extensions are being discussed, with view to signing.

We have already extended thos eplayers loans, Archie and mckeverly are both out so PDC has said flint is staying and no bids have been received for Ritchie....

Flint being linked to Port Vale and Bradford, although Bradford have an initial bid turned down.

Mikele Leigertwood is set to resign for Crystal Palace for 500k after the signings of Hope Akpan from Crawley and Daniel Carrico from Sporting Lisbon

Akpan signed for Reading 3 days ago. Do keep up.

I would rather hope not. Got us relegated at charlton!!! F'ing useless!!!



10 Jan 2013 10:34:48
Michael Tonge is leaving Stoke for Leeds.

Done deal 2 and a half year deal for an undisclosed fee



10 Jan 2013 10:33:03
Leicester to sign Graham Dorrans for £3m, paving the way for Andy King to sign for West Ham in a £2.6m deal.

This won't happen. Dorrans wants a move to Middlesbrough to work with Mowbray and Venus again.



10 Jan 2013 10:06:16
New Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan set to make Deane Smalley of Oxford United his first signing - on loan til the end of the season - then permanent. This will then free-up Oxford to bring in John Akinde from Crawley.

Please take Akinde away he looks great but I am afraid can't score

This is why you won't do anything with sheridan,, he, will make him sub,, play him out of position,, why can't he get in the oxford side?

Deane smalley is out injured for another few weeks so i can't see plymouth putting in for deane



10 Jan 2013 09:59:14
Rotherham to sign Matt Tubbs, Kayode Odejayi going the other way along with £500,000. Deal done in time for the visit of Barnet to the NYS.



10 Jan 2013 09:54:32
Goalkeeper Lee Camp told he can leave, he's likely to go to Reading

Doubt Reading want another keeper, already have ample cover



10 Jan 2013 09:47:34
Tom Ince has a clause in his contract that means Liverpool will get 35% of the transfer fee of his next move. This also means that if Liverpool signed for him, they'd get '35% discount'. Blackpool want £7m for Ince, meaning Liverpool could get him for just over £4.5m. If the move is completed this month, as expected, then Stewart Downing will go out on loan. Middlesbrough are interested, as Downing still has property in the area, but he apparently would prefer to move a PL team. QPR have been mentioned.

10 Jan 2013 13:09:50
Rumours circulating Liverpool have put a 12 million pound bid in for moussa sow...if so will they want ince back ?

Norwich City arr working hard to complete a pre contract agreement deal for Valerenga midfielder Mohammed Fellah which they are set to sign as a free agent in the summer with a small amount of compensation being paid to Valerenga.

I really hope this is true. I think Wes has been one of our best players this season but he is our only real attacking midfielder and Fellah would probable be a back up.

Is Fellah all that? Do we need this player? We have a bunch of Mids and I'd rather we sign Bridcutt as we need cover for Tetty and Johnson and in any case defensive mids get injured and banned a lot so we do need a third and Bridcutt will get games.
Bridcutt against Newcastle was proof enough that this lad is ready for the Prem.



10 Jan 2013 09:43:35
Lambert is being backed by the Villa hierarchy, and has been given £10m to save their season. Liam Dunk, Dale Stephens, Tom Huddlestone and Kelvin Leerdam have all been mentioned. A fee has already been agreed with Charlton for Stephens. Villa have been speaking to Spurs about a loan for Huddlestone, but 2 other PL teams are interested. Liam Dunk is expected to move to Crystal Palace.

Shambert out! he's done enougth damage

Are you meaning Lewis Dunk of Brighton? As a Brighton fan, I'd be disappointed to lose him. He is a good, young defender who is generally pretty comfortable in possession. However, I'd say that's similar to what Villa have. I would think Villa would be looking for a defender with more experience. Saying all that, if he is leaving, I'd rather he went to Villa than P*l*ce!!

Palace does not need Dunk as our back four is good enough and strong enough.

"A fee has already been agreed with Charlton for Stephens" Simply wrong, this is not the case at all. Villa did make a bid in the summer but that has lapsed and was not enough to provide a suitable replacement let alone compensate for the disruption. I can't see Stephens being the answer to your problems anyway, his form has been poor so far this season barring a few games.

Lewis Dunk is his name if you're referring to the Brighton CB.

Stephens to villa hope not, we need him

Stephens form is been poor lol he has been our best player along with solly



10 Jan 2013 09:40:36
QPR are favourites to sign Michael Dawson, with Sunderland interested aswell. AVB isn't apparently looking to sell unless there is a "significant offer" on the table, despite trying to offload him on the cheap last summer.



10 Jan 2013 09:38:24
Crystal Palace won't sell Zaha this month unless they are offered £11m upfront, £3m in bonuses and a loan back to Palace for the rest of the season, or loan players in return. Manchester United have only offered £10m with the loan back.

Offer was excepted from Man you this morning fee 12m

Who on earth are "Man you"?



10 Jan 2013 09:36:40
Middlesbrough are weighing up a move for either shrewsbury winger Jon Taylor or Notts County Winger Alan Judge

Alan judge




10 Jan 2013 09:04:41
Due to Gera, Mulumbu, Yacob, Dorrans out for various reasons and Brunt struggling to find form, I understand West Brom are looking at:
Oscar De Marcos from Athletic Bilbao
Redmond from Bham
Derek Boeteng and Samual Inkoom. Watch this space

Derek bouteng tne one who has just signed for fulham wwwwwww

Aah no transfer window would be complete without the Derekl Boateng link .. kind of comforting really.

10 Jan 2013 14:53:59

Bobby hassle to be given the Barnsley job with flickers as his assistance coach the board think he is a fans fav and he would be able to get the team going again

Love hassell as a player but this would be awful appointment if true
he hasnt got the knowledge to get us back up and he defently hasnt got the experiance..... flickers is just hill sidekick too so nothing would change

What a load of rubbish why would they give it to hassle no experience would be better off giving it to redferne



10 Jan 2013 07:17:19
Nigerian defensive duo, Oboabona and Egwuekwe, both due to star in the African Nations Cup are being lined up for a move to the UK this month. Stoke are favourites to sign the pair although a number of clubs interested in these outstanding talents.

Don't need Oboabona - got plenty of decent CBs. And we're linked to better LBs than Egwuekwe.



10 Jan 2013 02:03:51
Reading FC have bid accepted for Morten Gamst Pedersen for £3million breaking their record transfer fee

He is likely to implemented as an attacking midfielder behind lone striker Pavel Pogrebynak for the rest of the season, should he agree personal terms with the club.

They spent more money on Adrian mariappa

No they didn't... Mariappa cost Reading £2.5m ....

^^WRONG, Mariappa was only 2.5 same as Gunter.

So this is the 'established premier league player' readingchronicle says we're set to sign?

Mariappa cost 2.5m

Hope it's true. Please be true

This would be a very smart signing! Would it already signal the end of Guthrie though!?

Gamst Pedersen won't be joining reading anytime soon



10 Jan 2013 01:57:35
The main favourites for the managers job at Doncaster are mark robins and Steve lomas. Also heard David holdsworth has an outside chance too. I'd be happy with Steve lomas as he has done well with st. Johnstone and comes highly recommended by Harry redknapp.

Im not convinced about Lomas. Derek McInnes was manager at St Johnstone before Lomas and MnInnes record there was significantly better than Lomas. Lomas inherited a team who had been doing really well and since he took over they have done OK but lost more games than they have won. Plus McInnes hasnt exactly shone at Bristol City...



10 Jan 2013 01:56:36
Moyes working on the loan of Belgian midfielder odjidja-ofoe of club brugge. This will be a 6 month loan and if successful will be a permanent deal worth just under £5 million although it will be funded by the sale of marouanne fellaini.

The loan will happen, the sale, WILL NOT.
