Shrewsbury to sign Paul Pogba and Oliver Norwood on season-long loans from Manchester United after their match against a Man Utd XI. Graham Turner is also in talks with Michael McIndoe about a free move to the Shrews after his release from Coventry, as well as the slim chance that David Davies will be returning to the town, again on loan. Town will also be looking to secure a right back, possibly on youngster loan. Finally, the signing of Terry Gornell will finally be wrapped up by Shrewsbury, but will go to a tribunal to agree a fee, which will be less than Accringtons valuation of the player.

Liverpool have already signed Jordan Henderson for £16m and Charlie Adam for £6.75m while Brazilian goalkeeper Doni is expected to complete a £1m move on Monday.

Nasri is probably on the plane to Asia now, in spite of newspaper reports that he has been ''on the brink of moving'' to Man U or City for over a month. If Bendtner and Almunia have been left out of the Asian Tour squad with no deals even close to being made, then Wenger's inclusion of Nasri clearly indicates that he is not planning to sell him soon (if at all). Besides, I do not believe that Man City have the facilities to perform a medical in Kuala Lumpur. Stop speculating based on useless information - there will be no movement with his issue for at least a week.

In other news, visa issues have held up Gervinho's move so he is back in France. The 11m move will be completed in 7-14 days.(6)(4)

MATT TUBBS TO Scunthorpe


10 Jul 2011 12:57:13
Liverpool will lodge a bid of £17m + David N'Gog for Stewart Downing on monday morning also quite disappointingly they have agreed on a fee of £12.5m with Inter Milan for Raul Meireles.Meireles enjoyed a fine first season in England and despite playing in every position across the midfield he managed to pick up PFA Fans Player of The Year , after settling in England and with a full pre season under his belt he surely would have been even better.Raul is in my opinion a better player than both Adam and Henderson and with the inflated fees going around getting £12.5m for a player we paid £10.7m for just last year does not seem logical I would have valued Raul around £15-16m.(11)(8)

2 more signings on horizon at Wolves. One will be the highly rated Scottish youngster Wallace (Hearts), the other will be a more experienced campaigner to bolster the central defensive position Sol Campbell (Unattached), the club will dangle the carrot of a player/coach position. Only other summer incoming business will be one or two from the foreign legion that is the French League if deals can be agreed, with midfield the priority. This unless Konchesky can be persuaded to make Molineux his home with salary being the stumbling block (however expect Albion to also bid for his services). Going the other way Halford, Maierhoffer, Keogh as first team opportunities desert them. Players to keep an eye on this season will be the re-positioned Elokobi (regular starter at centre back come end of season), Guedoira (first team regular come end of season), Bathh and Rooney (both will consolidate themselves in the first team squad).
On another note Leicester, Forest and West Ham to all return to prem next term.(10)(10)

Liverpool outs -
Joe Cole is talking to Hamburg and could seal a move in the next few days, Meireles has offers from Inter & Juventus but is holding out for the expected offer from A.Madrid.
Paul Koncheskey has an offer from Q.P.R. but is not keen on this, West ham have enquired but no firm offer yet.
Jovanovic has been talking to Anderlecht & C.Bruge, but Celtic are his favoured option, Everton have enquired too
Ngog wont be going to Sunderland, but may go to WBA (on loan unless they sell odemwingie).

Liverpool ins -

The obvious ones are still possible (Downing, Mata, Enrique, Cissoko) the less obvious ones being considered are -
Shane Long (unlikely due to lack of top flight expierience, but seen as a cheap & young option).
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 8m bid + add ons was made in Jan, Saints didn't want to sell then but our interest is still there.
Arjen Robben - Comolli has been asking Bayern about him for a couple of months now, and he is reportedly keen on the move even @ the £28m price tag that Bayern have placed on him.
Aiden McGeady is another winger that KK would like, he knows him well from there time together @ Celtic and he is keen to leave Moscow where he has failed to settle.
Another option that Comolli is looking at is Gonzalo Higauin, Real want 18-22m for him but could loan him out for a year to assist the deal, there isn't much competition for him at the moment (ajax & Malaga enquired last month)

I get these direct from Melwood, i have a family member & a close friend that work there in the Kitchen and the support staff.(16)(24)

Some interesting news coming from the City Ground.

Nottingham Forest will sell Luke Chambers to Reading for an undisclosed fee.

Chris Gunter is a target for Norwich City and would demand a fee in the region of £1.5m.

Lewis McGugan could get his chance to prove himself in the Premier League if QPR sell Taarabt this Summer.

Lee Camp will sign for Aston Villa in a fee reported to be worth £2m + £500k after 30 league appearances.

Out of contract Guy Moussi looks set on a move to Everton.

Wes Morgan is a target for Portsmouth.

David McGoldrick could move to Swindon for £300k.

Scunthorpe have had a bid accepted for Joe Garner, thought to be in the region of £100k.

Steve McClaren has been told by Mark Arthur that Nigel Doughty only wants to provide £5m into the transfer coffers at Nottingham Forest and McClaren is expected to stick to a strict wage budget of £150k per week.

Forest look to be in the lead for the signing of Wayne Routledge, one or two free transfers may also arrive. We wont get eight players to replace those that have left the club, a maximum of five more will arrive, leaving us with around 19 senior players for next season.

Doughty is in financial trouble and should preferably look to sell the club.

Nicky Maynard wont come in, Wesley Verhoek will sign for Villa, Shorey will stop at WBA, Bertrand to Swansea on loan, Tshabalala will go to Fulham. We'll be stuck with Colchester United's cast-offs.

I'm becoming increasingly concerned now that Luke Chambers has been linked with Reading by Brian McDermott himself (Acc. to TalkSport)
