Celtic will be signing Ljunberg, appiah and a top striker who plays in the Spanish league

Leeds Are Set To Sign Cureton, Andy Monkhouse, Leon Knight And Jermaine Johnson.

Leeds Are Set To Let: Healy £2million To Fulham, Cresswell £1million To Sheffield Wednesdays, Kandol Back To Barnet £250k And Danny Rose To Everton £1million. Leeds Will Have Heath, Marques, Flo And Ankergren Sign New Deals

Arjen Robben has finally signed a new 5 year deal with Chelsea but this won't end there interest in florent Malouda. It looks like a straight battle between Chelsea and the scousers for his signature but expect the scousers to get him. To all you gooners who claim you are in the Hunt for Torres get real he would cost around 25 mill and has already turned down Manchester United more than once so why would he want to join the Premierships 4th team?. As I have said more than once on here Ryan Babel will be joining Arsenal.

Chelsea to sign – the costa (PSV) and a wide player from Malouda, queresma or romeo castelon from feyenoord.

I have herd that Richard wright will join Rangers on a free to challenge for gk spot at Rangers and that we will sign DaMarcus Beasley. look for Libor Sionko moving on . alan Smith will not be joining Rangers nor will be naismith as we will be priced out the move. expect novo to go as well

ACTUAL reason for no movement on Everton transfer front is because of 2 reasons. 1 is that two of their Targets (Dave Nugent and Leighton Baines) who have agreed to move to Everton but a fee, personal terms and a medical are still to take place are both on currently on England U21 Duty and so won't be able to do anything until they return from Holland, which at the latest will be 24th June (day after U21 Championship Final), so a fee is being agreed with Preston for Nugent and Wigan for Baines and then on 24th June they will both hold talks and a medical with Everton before signing Five–Year deals with the club, with the fees being £5m and £4m respectively.

THE OTHER reason there has been little/ no movement on the transfer front is, that although this might seem a bit Weird is because of the Chariman's (Bill Kenwright) involvement in the show 'Any Dream Will Do', and has so been living in London for large periods of time and has been so tied up in organising it, etc. he hasn't had time for Transfer discussions and the like. BUT as the final of this show is over, Kenwright will return to Goodison Park first thing tomorrow where he will help tie up deals for Manuel Fernandes (One–Year loan) and to put a deal in place for Phil Jagielka, that will trigger if Sheffield United are condemned to the Championship. If and when the Jury rejects the claims of Sheffield United, Jagielka will sign THAT DAY for £4m.

Deals are also believed to be in the pipe line for Jason Koumas for £3m, Justin Mapp (an American Winger who plays for Chicago Fire) on a One–Year loan and Jonny Evans from Man United for an Unknown fee as a Long–term Replacement for Alan Stubbs.

Making way will be James McFadden and Andy van der Meyde who have both struggled to settle since their respective moves over the past few seasons, with McFadden to Rangers or Derby and van der Meyde to Ajax or FC Twente.

The rumours of James Beattie swapping places with Jason Roberts are true, but this deal is likely to take some time in Discussion and is only in very early stages at the moment, but any deal would infact involve Jason Roberts + Cash, because Moyes doesn't actually want to sell James Beattie, so any offer for him would take some persuasion from Blackburn's Cheque book, despite the fact every Evertonian would jump at the chance for a straight swap, Moyes is obviously try to get as much out of the deal as he can. Roberts would then act as a Mentor for Vaughan and Anichebe.

Some of the rumours on here are a load of rubbish. Instead of saying you work in a burger van or work for the club just say your rumour. As soon as I read somebody putting 'I work in a burger fan, I know such and such who is related to Owen' I just skip down and read the next rumour.

I don't have any rumours but about Liverpool. The reason why we are getting linked with Henry is because he said many months ago that he loved the fans and we would be the only other English team he would consider playing for. The odds of him coming keep coming down. He was seen at Anfield/ Melwood this week but apparently it was for a new TV advert. So don't be building your hopes up!


Swddish striker Johan Elmander is set to sign for Reading in a £3m deal.


I have it on good authority that Samuel Eto'o will not be moving to the Premiership so Chelsea, Man United, Liverpool and Arsenal can forget him. If he does decide to leave Barca (only reason bieng that he does not get on with Ronaldinho) then his likely destination will be A. C Milan. Now, as for the recent info aout Thierry Henry and Milan is a big smoke screen, he has agreed to join Liverpool, the two clubs just have to agree on the fee, Mark my words. Chellmiester

St. Mirren Arrivals

St. Mirren are currently looking to improve on there relegation battle for season 07/ 08 by signing centre back Bamba from Dunfermline due to the departure of fans favourite and captain Kirk Broadfoot.

Another possible signing is promising under 17's Scottish internationalist, Martin Stevenson from the hamilton acidemical under 19's squad on a 50k.

I have it on good authority which players Benitez will buy. Hicks and Gillett promised Benitez a massive transferbudget. My source (a sportsjournalist) comes from Spain and told me that Benitez has made contact to the agents of:

Eto'o (£35m), D. Alves (£18m), G. Milito (£15m) and David Silva (£18m) and Renato Augusto (£15m) . The deals for the players playing in Spain are going to be finalised when the season is over!

Those players will cost Liverpool around £101m.

But players like Bellamy, Cisse, Kewell, Gonzales and Carson will be sold for about £25m. So Liverpool spent £76m on new players.

Forget the Malouda, Bent and Tevez threats because they are just smokescreens for David Silva and Eto'o, believe me!

The surprise striker that will be for the future is Alexandr Pato. He will be brought in for £14m but as he is only 17 years he will be for the future.

That will be all the transferactivity this Summer for Benitez. With the above mentioned players signed, Benitez things he finally has a squad who can go for the premierschip.

I know that you think it will be a another rumour but wait and convince yourself


I am from turkey and a great friend of aziz yildirim for many years, he is the president of Fenerbahce. After buying Roberto Carlos and also having zico as a coach . They tried 2 buy Adriano only untill they saw United with a 19.5 million bid. Man unt only have a 10 million dollar budget left after buying Nani and anderson so my guess is Saha is going 2 Lyon.

ThAnk you. from Istanbul.


Celtic truths

i posted Celtic will sign Bellamy and zenden and Fowler lst week but its been delayed till Thursday, watch out for press conference mcentee

Alex John Baptiste will sign for Nottingham Forest within the next 72 hours.

Crystal Palace ins.

John Oster–500k–Reading

Jeff Hughes–500k–Lincoln

teddy Sheringham–free–West Ham

Neil Lennon–free–Celtic

This website has replaced pasoti as the favourite in the Argyle Village. The Plymouth rumours keep a smile on all the staffs faces here. There is very little transfer activity due to holidays and our already strong squad. So far other than the two Hungarians the club have only arranged trials for Rogerio Matias, Ifeangi Udeze&Krisztian Lisztes. Ian Holloway has a list of other players at clubs but he hasn't seen them yet so it will be all quiet on the home front but keep those rumours going : –)

Sanli Tuncay will not be going to Arsenal for 6–7–8mil even if he is a classy 'Pires–like' player because he is a free agent. There are several clubs showing interest in him including Bolton and the ever present Newcastle so Spurs will probably make a bid.

Steve Bruce is rumoured to have been approached re the Man City job and he is more than interested. Bad blood at St. Andrews as is well known will see Bruce leave this summer.

Spurs could make a sensational swoop for Lukas Podolski. The Bayern Munich striker is not needed by Bayern after the arrivals of Luca Toni and Klose. Spurs are also tipped to join the race for Florent Molouda, but if they fail to get him then they could turn their attention to either Ryan Babel or Ricardo Quaresma.

Deportivo striker Xisco is a £1m target for Reading


D. Alves to Liverpool. Benitez is holidaying in Spain at the min and has already made a few contacts. apparently D. Alves is on his way out of Sevilla!he is set on Liverpool because they have shown interest in him for 2 years.

to the Chelsea fan who said Quaresma would be joining them because of his relationship with Mourinho. are you tryin to imply that Quaresma was there when Jose was. ammmm, Quaresma signed a few months after Mourinho left for Chelsea!sorry to break the rumours.

Man United have failed to land Samuel eto'o. therefore they will switch their attention to Berbatov or Torres. Huntelaar is becoming inreasingly unlikely. United will free up the funds by allowing Heinze, Richardson and Smith to leave. Man United are also interested in Micah Richards but any move for him will be in January. Brown or Fletcher will not be sold. Pique will return and Rossi situation will depend whether United land Saviola and another striker. most likely he will get a chance with United next season



Next week will see us sign 2 players, Eastwood from Southend and Sharp form Scunthopre

MM will be back in the office on Monday after a break in Spain

Villa will sign Reo Coker after the under 21 European championships, the other young villians have convinced him, hence the reason McCann has been able to go to Bolton.

Spurs will probably beat Villa to the signing of Wesley Sneijder, altho MON will fight this all the way. MON also keeping tabs on what happens at Liverpool, Man United&Chelsea, Kewell&Bellamy from Liverpool, Alan Smith, Richardson&Eagles at Man United&Geremi&SWP at Chelsea.

MON will also allow the young stars at Villa to play all Carling cup games.

To the person saying only wba and wolve scould afford sharpe Norwich have made the higest bid and it was accepted u numnut, 2.5 mill it was on Scunthorpes official site

At Newcastle airport the other day I was talking to Alan shearer who is doing an amassador type role at nufc at the minute he reckons three big names to come in wouldn't say who though he also said shola and Carr are moving up the road to the stadium of light combined fee of about 5.5mill and that Owen will definately stay even if only till January to see how club progresses under big sam. Also said watch out for new local lad carl hope (left wing) who will break into first team this season once sam has his fitness up to scrratch.


Well, there's lots of gossip about potential new buys but I have a great rumour which comes from God himself (or a close chum of RF, as I like to call him) . Eto'o and Tevez have already agreed to Terms and Conditiomns and will be unveiled on Wednesday next week – a massive cash outlay but well worth the struggle. To follow will be Malouda and Alves with a few more younger players to push for future places. Believe the Hype.

L4 0TH

To the crazy guy who said Wednesday can't afford Billy shap is compeletley wrong! The Owls have still got 2.5m from the bougherra sale!


Kenwyne Jones

Jermaine Easter

Brian Mcbride

Reading's winger John oster will join Crystal Palace this week after agree a free

Heard a very exciting rumour from inside Celtic Park today. Mr Lawwell has spoken to Barca to see how much they want for Gudjohnson. We have been priced out of a move for Bellamy, no way we are going to pay 9m for him. Roy Makaay is still on the radar as there are problems behind the scenes with Riordan. I understand that when Darren Fletcher was at James McFadden's wedding yesterday he was overheard saying he wanted to go to Parkhead as his options at Man United have decreased with the new signings and he doesn't want to lose his international place. I also heard a strange rumour re;Gravesen going to Rangers. Dont know how much truth there is in this but I would gladly let him go there.



Sunderland to complete signing of Aston Villa's Liam Ridgewell sometime next week. Heard that Sunderland are having press conference Thursday next week, so expect an unveiling of a new transfer then.


O Jorno here with some breaking rumours. Heard that Stuttgartīs Turkish midfielder Basturk could be on his way to Celtic. Something to do with a swap deal but to be honest I think it must be a mistake or a three way swap deal as I cannot imagine which Celtic player it is. Anyway, Basturk just recently went to Stuttgart on a Bosman but is reportedly headed for Glasgow. Could be the Dec window as Bosman will most likely rule him out for a summer switch. I donīt know, I donīt know the rules but heīs heading for Glasgow. Unless itīs Rangers heīs going to? I do0nīt know. I just know it ios Glasgow he is going to.

Birmingham's wish list:

mido (4m) Spurs

juanma (free) la coruna

koncheskey (3m) West Ham

tenorio (250k) LDU quito

ridgewell (2m) villa

Zamora (3.5m) West Ham

andy Cole (250K) pompey (if lowers wage)

Nottingham Forest Ins&Outs:


Leon Best – 350k

Neil Lennon – &bumper coaching role

Arron Davies – 300k

Matty Jarvis – 700k

Alan Wright – Free

Paul Robinson (WBA) – 1m (or swap for Nathan Tyson)


Rune Pederson – 200k to Brentford

Wes Morgan – 500k to Leeds

Kris Commons&Nathan Tyson – KC Free and NT 1.5m to Birmingham

Alan Thompson – 100k to Wycombe

Jack Lester – Free to Chesterfield

David Prutton – Loan return to Southampton

John Curtis – Free to MK Dons

Gary Holt – Free to Gretna

Grant Holt – 600k to Carlisle

All rumours 100% true as I'm Good Friends with a Director of NFFC, also, CC could be planning a shock swoop for veteran Portsmouth Striker Andrew Cole on a 2–Year deal as he's Nottingham Born&Bred and said himself in an interview with "Forest Online" that he'd always loved Forest and would strongly consider ending his career there if the offer was good enough!

Young Irish starlets SCahill and Scanlon to join Irish revolution at Reading FC. they will sign for a combined fee of 500,000 from Cork City. SCahill is a tidy left back, Scanlon is a midfielder who Steve Coppell thinks can replace Sidwell.


Sheffield Wednesday are rumoured to have tables a £700,000 bid for Wycombe's, Wales international striker Jermaine Easter. The offer would also see Sheffield Wednesday centre–half Graham Coughlan move in the opposite direction.

It is also believed that the owls are now firm favourites to sign Scunthorpe's exciting young pair of Marcus Williams and Billy Sharp. Both are believed to have expressed an interest to link up with their former manager Brian Laws.


Steven Whittaker – £1.5m

Stephen Appiah – £5m

Steven Naismith – £1.8m

Reading fans are tired of the lazy whinging little runt Soel Ki–Hyeon, or to the locals, Sulky Hyeon.

He cost a potential £1.5m and you get maybe one good game in 5 out of him, if that!

Please approach the club with all offers. I'm currently in the process of offering him to former Royals coach Martin 'Mad Dog' Allen for fiver pound and a packet of frazzles. He in tern told me to get knotted, in a matter of words.

The only person that rates this lazy lump highly is Sulky himself.

Cheerio loser

West Ham are to make a shock move for Real Madrid's Miguel Torres. An enquiry will be made about the availability. This will only happen if Real, get Gabby Heinze.


The guy who said he knew David Dein would be joining Liverpool. Theres a lot of sense in that rumour as its well known around Merseyside that Rick Parry is leaving. I (just personally) thought Hicks Jr. would take the post but David Dein would be great rumours. Not just for the obviuos Henry potential but to help with the new stadium. Hes got experience after ashburton grove, and I suspect he may know who else offered what amount to sponsor the stadium name? So if he can pull in another 100m pound deal I can't see too many kopites moaning of the failure to call it the new Anfield. Espescially with our American owners and Beckham introducing America to footy properly, a deal with an adidas or pepsi would be phenomenol! But back to the point the potential he could bring to Liverpool is there to be seen. If he comes he would be quite a coup! U just made my day by telling me that I gt all sorts of fantasies in my head. Sorry lads no real rumour there, but its indirectly linked : –p

I work in the music department at sky sports. There has been rumours funneling round the office that Arsenal have had a £10 million for a certain Lyon Midfielder accepted. I cannot disclose the name but he is a French international and plays on the left. The player himself has yet to decide where to go however. .

No insider info, but interesting to see the odds on Henry joining Liverpool have dropped from 10/ 1 to 2/ 1 in the last week. Those vultures aren't often wrong.

Gordon Strachan and Peter Lawell are not stupid so there is no way either Nakamura or Boruc will be leaving Celtic this summer. Nakamura is making Celtic at least £5 million a year in the Japanese market so selling him for £7 million when he still has 3 years to go on his contract isn't good maths. Boruc has been the first decent keeper Celtic have had for at least 20 years and will not be sold unless Strachan wants the remaining 50% of fans that like him to turn against him. Expect Appiah, Naismith (yes, we will beat Rangers to another player) and a £2 – £3 million striker to come in.

Virgo, Marshall, Balde, Zurawski, Miller, Gravesen, Jarosik and Beattie to go.

All Gooners fans, calm down Henry's going nowhere, his statement that he's flattered by Milans interest is the first salvo in the Kroenke takeover which will last all summer, David Deins son is one of Thierrys advisors so eveybody wise up, in two months time the old regime will be gone, Dein will be back and the squad will be dramatically improved. In ARSENE WE TRUST.

Man United will not make anymore signings, unless they decide to sign a youngster for a nominal fee. Any idea that they will spend big on yet another player is completely wrong, they simply don't have the funds avaiable after already signing big. The only slight possiblity is Javier Saviola.

Chelsea will try and match United by purchasing young and exciting talent. Ricardo Quaresma is the first choice but they have been put of by initial talks with Porto, resulting with the recent interest in Malouda. However, he has verbally agreed to sign for Liverpool after finishing his summer holidays. Alex will finally move to Chelsea. They will also enquire about Simao and Alves, but once again these would prefer to join other clubs who have had a more long term interest. It seems like players are beginning to learn that a first team place will never be garanteed at Chelsea, no matter how high profile they are.

Liverpool have almost wrapped up their deal to sign Malouda. If this doesn't go through, interst will turn to Pedersen. Benitez is also interested in the wonderkid Pato from Internacional to back up the signing of Leiva. However a huge price tag has turned his attentions elsewhere. Likewise with Augusto. With Leto also having signed, Liverpool have solved there left wing problems so will focus on the right wing. Alves is Rafa's first choice to his attacking intent and versatility, but he will join Real Madrid due to an inflated price and wage demands. Attention will turn to Simao whose price hasn't inflated since the reds first showed their interest. This is likely to happen at around 12 million. Finally, the striker position is very interesting. Benitez would like one big name signing and another supporting striker. Henry talk is way off the Mark however, and a bid for Eto'o will inevitable fail. This leaves Villa, Tevez and Torres. David Villa has a big price tag, which will only increase if a bidding war begins, so Fernando Torres will be the man joining as Tevez will suprisingly opt for Juventus. After Torres, Amuro will be the supporting striker to add more goals and depth to the first team.

Arsenal rumours on here are very wrong. Once again, they will not sign any big name players, so speculation of Eto'o, Torres and the like should really stop. Malouda, Quaresma and Pedersen are the most high profile targets, but they are likely to miss out on all of them. Reo–Coker will join and a move is in place for the impressive Steven Appiah. Augusto will be investigated but Wenger will not pay that sort of money after the failings of Reyes.

Burnley are to take Former Derby and Ipswich winger Darren Currie on a free transfer this next week offering a 2 year deal.
