Football Rumours Archive October 11 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Normally i post news about the North West clubs however my source has some news about the London clubs.

Poor West Ham (no pun intented) will really have 2 sell if no new owner is found. Expect Upson (7m)and Ashton (9m) to leave for Spurs, as well as Quashie (1m), Neill (2m), Mullins (2m), Etherington (3m), Cole (4m) and unfortunately for the Hammers . . Mark Noble (10m – ). Coming in will be Appiah (free,(who is now willing to lower his wages to secure a deal), Heskey (4 m), Nugent (loan), Duff (2.5m), Khizinashvili (1m), Johnny Evans (loan)and DeMerit (nominal fee). Sad times at the Hammers.

Arsene Wenger is still looking for a defensive midfielder and his top target is Man City's Michael Johnson. If Johnson does not get a place in Mark Hughes' team due to their daft spending, he will be looking to leave City and Wenger is willing to pay up2 £15m for the youngster.

Don't expect Ramos to be at Spurs much longer. Gus Poyet will take the helm and will ask Dennis Wise yes, Dennis Wise to be his number 2. He'll bring in Ashton and Upson from the Hammers. Wise will recommend some more English talent with versatile defender Wes Brown and Gareth Barry topping of his list.

The Matador
  To the person who said that Rangers have just annouced a £350 million pound deal to redevelop the surrounding areas around Ibrox,this is in fact true but what he didnt tell you is that Rangers are now actively seeking partners to finance the project.Always read the small print.

4 in a row.
  Free agent Kiki Musampa is in talks with Coca–Cola Football League Two side Accrington Stanley about a switch to the Fraser Eagle Stadium, this comes weeks after John Coleman confirmed that the club had been in talks with Jay Jay Okocha.

Arsenal have a deal in place for a South American Striker where the forward would move on loan to Salamanca to gain experiece.

Nigerian International John Obi Mikel is reportedly on Wengers list as well after it was heard Wenger pulled out of a deal for Mineiro and requested the free agent to Luiz Felipe Scolari.

If not mikel Arsenal could make a move for Wilson Palacios.

There is chances of Wenger getting Dutch International Ibrahim Afellay and Belgium International Dembele.

Pedro will return and fight for LM with Rosicky and Traore will stick LWB.

While Barazite will return and make an instant impact.

Arsenal are taking look at Brazilian trio?

More News Soon
  Arsenal are on the verge of bringing Turkish winger Arda Turan to the club after his club and Arsenal came to terms on a 15.8million transfer.

The free–scoring right midfielder shined for Turkey in the Euro 2008 after 2 goals and 4 assists.

Arsene Wenger who is an admirer of the player said when asked about Turan "I am a huge fan of Arda[Turan]".

"He reminds me of Ronaldo or Overmars".

"He's a very versatile player and his abilities show he will be a greater player than he already is".

Wenger was later on that week asked if he is still in the market and he said "Well while there is January we are in no rush".

"There's only a few days left of the transfer window".

"There are many players who want to join, But I have 1 in mind".

"I've spoke to the press about him before".

when asked if it was Arshavin Wenger said "Well he's good player with loads of experience. But No its not him".

When asked about Turan "Well he is great too".

"But I don't want to get into too much details".

"There are negotiations and a deal should be finalized come the New Year."

  Charlton Athletic has had a bid placed by an arabian billionare(cant remem. name) they were the ones that were linked to newcastle.They made the bid because thay can see potential but whether it is accepted is a different story.

Sheik? for LFC
  "David Murray is actually the 113th richest man in Great Britain mate google it yourself and check it out on Wikipedia before you advise others!!!"

hahahahahahaha wikipedia? for facts? ha
  Exciting news for Rangers fans!!!! My uncle works as a dietician at Murray Park and was talking to one of the coaches there. He rekons that the bears have all but agreed to take Alan Smith on loan in Jan for the rest of the season with an option to buy for £4mil at the end of the season.
  To The people talking about the finance affairs of Rangers and that they will go bust, They have just announced a £350 million pound plan to re develop Ibrox and the surounding area.
Rangers will sign only one player in January a central defender possibly Reynolds from Motherwell
  Sheikh Mohamed al–Maktoum will be the owner of Liverpool in March. Samir al–Ansari will be the new chief–exec. The bid will be £575m which will wipe debt off the club and inc. the building of a 73,000 seater stadium in Stanley Park. Rafa will be offered a marque signing each summer and any other signings Rafa feels necessary. This winter there will be little transfer activity with Voronin agreeing deal to stay at Hertha. In the summer there will be a £50m bid for Aguero as this is his buy out fee. Bids for Juve's Giovinco £12m and Gareth Barry £15m will also be made.
  Norwich City will not be signing anyone. Look for the club to be sold as soon as they hit bottom of the league. Roeder to leave soon after.
  Once the black and white comdey has concluded at Newcastle there will be some suprise packages appearing around january. Martins will be re–united with Cruz of Inter along with some rich pickings from West Ham, not as many as first thought. Viduka will have his contract cancelled because of his injury freeing him to return to Oz. Butt will be replaced and the fullback situation will be easied. Crazy money will not be spent but signings that will secure Prem safety.
  David Murray is actually the 113th richest man in Great Britain mate google it yourself and check it out on Wikipedia before you advise others!!!

Liverpool will sign Aislan, Valencia and maybe Diogo in January for a title push this season. The Americnas will be out before next season and will not make much more progress on building the stadium. Shiekh Mohammed will buy the club for around 600–650 million clear the debts and build a new satdium the offer of 500 was on the table but has now been upped! Although he will own the club do not expect a lot of big name signings as Rafa feels he only needs a few touches to the squad to make it great! Aguero is definatley the top target for next summer although he is for alot of clubs!
  A very reliable source in the Leeds area has told me that Derby County will sign Jermaine Beckford, initially on loan until January, in the next week. Up the mighty Rams!
  News just in. ronaldo has agreed personal terms with real madrid which could be a sign of distres at united. the winger has not been performing to his high standards in the premiership and the champions league. in the next few weeks we will see if ronaldo actually does sign a contract with madrid. but will ferguson protest again?
  To the guy who said "It must be a sad day when you have clinch on to hope that the superior team goes bust because a bank takes over a bank! lol what a ridiculous post! David Murray is 95th on the rich list and is the richest man in Scottish football! FACT! so before you nimpleweeds reply google it"

Doesn't matter how rich the individual is it depends on whether they are willing to spend their personal wealth on the club, e.g. Jamie Moffat left Killie with £12 million of which is £2million to him he is worth £108 million yet some rumoured take over bids have failed due to his unwillingness to write off his £2million, also worth noting Killie's debt is reduced to £8million so he could in theory wipe our debts (the results of his mismanagement)and still leave himself with a bare £100million fortune.

So if Murray as the rumours have suggested has personal money troubles or just feels that he has pumped enough money into Rangers then these rumours may be feasible enough to be true.
  To the person who said that he saw Julio Cruz with Gary Megson is obviously lying, i can believe that they met, but a posh restuarant in Bolton? That i carnt believe

"Maurice Johnston currently manager of Toronto Fc is being lined up to succeed Gordon Strachan at Celtic. Strapon is unhappy with the continual interference in his private life and is actively searching for a new club in England. Johnston has tendered his resignation and it appears it's only loose ends need to be tied up"

Do you honestly believe the Sceptic fans would ever accept MoJo back at their club??? Wee Gordo is the saviour in comparison to MoJo. . the wee ginger is looking to leave but Sceptic will be looking at Tony Mowbray or on the outside bet – John Collins or Sam Allardyce
  To the guy who says "the ground is delayed because a new design is on the table for 80,000 seater". This is not true so i don't believe his Sheikh mohammed link either.
The staduim has been delayed because LFC owners did not come up with the £5m cash needed to start the work, Lfc were annoyed because £5m of local funding disapperaed due to the delay and they did not have the capital to replace the £5m. They were refused the loan to borrow it. Hence the statements saying the delay is due to credit crunch. Trust me tis is true, i work for the guys with the build contract!
  If the molineux boys don't win promotion this season expect a bidding battle to commence between villa and everton for a certain micheal kightly!!!
  Maurice Johnston currently manager of Toronto Fc is being lined up to succeed Gordon Strachan at Celtic. Strapon is unhappy with the continual interference in his private life and is actively searching for a new club in England. Johnston has tendered his resignation and it appears it's only loose ends need to be tied up.
  By the end of the season West Ham United will have new owners. I am not sure who yet but there will definately be cash injected into the club ready for the next season. With the money coming in there will be a lot of business happening at Upton Park next summer.

  At a meeting yesterday, Simon Dvey told Barnsley chairman the players he wants to sign now or in Jaunuary. They are set to sign Aaron Mokoena on loan from Blackburn Rovers until January, a possibility of a loan deal for Steve MacLean from Plymouth with a view to a permanent £250,000 deal in and South African midfielder Kagiso Dikgacoi as they will fight for his signature against Fulham.
Also, the board had a meeting about appointing Gerry Francis as manager if Davey does go.
  ––Watford FC/Wolverhapton Wanderers News––

As some may know, Darren Ward is on loan at Watford. This is becase he had a 'clash of personalities' with the Wolves manager, Mick McCarthy.

Having spent time at Vicarige Road before, he is enjoying being back at Watford, and is keen to make the move permanent.

Unfotunatly this is unlikely to happen, as Watford cannot afford the transfer fee. If Watford's finantial state does improve in the near future then it is likely that Darren Ward will become a Watford player on a permanent basis.

Even if the transfer to Watford does not come through, other clubs are said to be interested in Ward, who will apparently do anything to avoid returning to Wolves under McCarthy.

Heard this from quitea reliable source, so hopefully my first rumour posted will be a correct one!
