Football Rumours Archive December 12 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

ork at Carrow Road and the rumours behind the scenes are that Holt & Hoolahan will join Sheffield United but Billy Sharp doesn't want to drop down a division, so expect around £1 million to secure them both.


Palermo is slledgedly interested in goalkeeper Fernando Henrique from Fluminense (Brazil).

From the same club, centre–back Luis Alberto and attacker Roni could be on their way out to Fenerbahce.


Adriano to arsenal is a distinct possibility. The only problem will be his attitude if he does sign, after taking an indefinite break from football last season. a CB/DCM being looked at for january. most likely a CB will sign, in the form of Neven Subotic: at a non CL club, 6'4, good in the air, scores goals, a ball–playing CB, young, Vidic's defensive partner for Serbia, open to a move to a big european club. would be perfect for us. Eboue and Song are off to ACN. We have cover Eboue in the form of Sagna, Gilbert. For Song, Diaby and Denilson are working their way back to fitness, expect Craig Eastmond to be given a chance to impress in the premiership.
Jan in: Adriano (free), Subotic (£12m). Out: Senderos (£5m).

Summer: Rosicky is on the verge of signing a new deal. Gallas may not, Silvestre will leave. Arsene happy with GK options (Almunia, Fab, Mannone, Szczesny), so barring a dramatic change of mind, expect no GK arriving in Summer. Full back spots have ample talent, though Traore may leave on loan or permanently depending on how this season progresses for him. CB: Sakho and Richards being looked at. no more than £14m will be spent on a CB.Zapata an outside chance. DCM: Toulalan, Witsel, Inler and Noble being watched. No Matuidi or Yaya. CF: Hazard being looked at, but he may play as a winger.
Summer in: Sakho/Richards (£14m/£10m), Hazard (£6m), Inler (£10m)
out: Silvestre, Gallas (both free), Traore (loan), Wilshere (loan), Randall (£1m), Simpson (£4m).


Walsall to sign Dean keates in january. Walsall also want to make Mcdonald a permanent player, as Smith has attracted intrest from WBA and Notts Forest.


Now with the current investment that Cardiff City have been given they are expected to have a transfer budget of around £4 million in the January transfer market. Cardiff who at the begining of the season where not looking strong in midfield have sufferd a number of injurys to key members of the squad, that are Joe Ledley and Steven Mcphail. I have heard from a close source to the club that Cardiff are set there eyes on 3 key players to bring to the State of the art new facilities. These players are:
1. Darren Pratley (swansea city) around £3 million although unlikely as from riival club..
2.Gai (Barcelona) this is more like alone move as the youngster has a heafty price tag of around £20 million
3. Gareth Pearce (Manchester United) made a big impression for united reserves again cardiff in november and caught the eye of Dave Jones.


Zola has offered his resignation . . no idea if it has been accepted


To the guy who wrote:
I heard that rangers are signing klaas jan huntelaar on loan in january as part of a deal to take bougherra to milan.
Where did you hear that the comedy channel ?
Real rumours – Rangers are unlikely to be majorly active during the transfer window, but should be able to hold on to key players such as Mendes and Bougherra until at least the Summer. McGregor linked with a move to Spurs for 7 million.

Forster Will Sign Permantley based On Newcastle and City achieving Promotion


As a Celtic fan it is obvious to everyone that there was no rioting by Rangers fans in Seville in midweek. The Rangers fans have previous yes but, lets face it, so do the Spanish police! Also, events in Manchester, the blame could probably be said to be split 50–50 between Rangers fans (including troublemakers up from other parts of England and attaching themselves to their support) and the police who were told during the rioting not to approach a Rangers fans without hitting him! 100% true my brother is a pc in Manchester! Also just to get this off my chest, Celtic have monies to spend in Jan but it won't stretch to Robbie Keane, we have spent £2m on the Korean lad. Rangers however ARE really struggling and there is no takeover on the horizon. They MUST sell players and McGregor and Bougherra will leave in Jan. That's the reason McGregor got the nod over Alexander at the start of the season, they can raise more cash for him in a sale if he plays.


Norwich city have recieved bids for Holt Hoolahan and Rudd, all have been turned down as sheer poultry amounts, Rudd is wanted by Arsenal, they have been told to up the bid to at least £2.000.000.No player will leave Carrow road on the cheap, those days have long gone, any player that does leave will not be from the first team, and those that do will be for money up front, no more buy now pay later.


With palace struggling for cash, mr. permatan (simon jordan) will step up his search for a saviour.

simon jordan has wanted out for a while, and will want a new buyer in by june.

no bids yet, but hopefully palace will get an owner who has the best intentions of the club at heart and maybe get us a new stadium too.

mark goldberg need NOT apply!


Lfc: out; reira 10mill, skrtel 11mill, babel 8mill, degen 2mill, voronin 4mill, dossena 5mill
in; upson 6mill, bentley 8mill, carlton cole 14mill, mata 18mill, pandev free


The leisure park Camelot situated between Preston, Blackburn and Bolton, has been marked down as a possible sight for a ground share between Rovers and P.N.E., Preston are losing money and the loss of the football museam to manchester is a serious blow as it brought money in out of season.Rovers although still getting a drip feed payment from the late jack walker, no longer have the funds they once had, or whats needed to keep pace with the middle order in the premiership.The camelot company would also be involved, there are already hotels and a large nightclub [earmarked as a casino] on the site, its connections to local motorway are inplace.Unlike Everton, lancs county council are backing the talks seeing it as a jobs provider for the area..this info is from planning depts connected with lancs c.c.


Liverpool fc facts..

Hicks and gillette have cash on the hip at the moment following the sale of their respective sports franchises. Dont expect big money for players, maybe a few bob but most likely loans...
However expect a fork in the ground in stanley park soon.... bigger picture... so many fools on this website don't see it... we might be struging but unitd appear to be on the bones of their arse....


Roque Santa Cruz to Villa in January as one of two major signings. Mark my words.


Adriano is in London to tie up a move to Spurs, Arsenal or Chelsea.Wenger will also be signing Zezinho and he will also tie up a deal for either hazard or arda turan in the summer. Inler, De Rossi, Matuidi are all dmf targets. Zapata, Sakho, Subotic, Tasci are all targets aswell.
Adriano is the fast, skillful, tall and powerful striker.


Forest to buy Neil Danns from Crystal Palace for £300, 000


Derby probabli will sell Rob Hulse in January but I don't think it will be to wolves, Mick Mcarthy is a rubbish manager and as only bought players like Billy Davies is doing with the Florists. Derby will be looking to the lower leagues again though and a bid for Jamie Mackie will be made. Paul Dickov will sign an extension on loan and so will DJ Campbell. Paul connoly will be sold and so will Kris Commons. This will be part of a rebuild to the squad, it does look worrying but it will eventually be sorted by the end of the season.


Martin allen will be unveiled as the new tranmere manager in january.

the club knows it's in the brown stuff, league wise, and want allen to make sure they avoid relegation.


LFC possible January signing:
Out:Riera to Spain for £10m possibly Atletico or Barca, Voronin to Germany for £4m, Dossena to Italy for £5m, Benayoun to Man City for £13m plus Michael Johnson, Škrtel to Italy for £11m plus Rafa has £12m budget.Total Income=£45m
Possible signing:Mata for £18m, Elia for £10m, Ilunga for £5m, Doumbia Seydou for £12m.


Right, concerning the dross that has been written about Norwich City FC....

I work at the club and we are most certainly NOT in any financial trouble. Yes, money is tight as it is at most clubs, but we have good inward cash flows and there will not be a massive sell–off of players in January.

Grant Holt and Wes Hoolahan MIGHT be sold to teams in the Championship, but only if a club can match our valuation of them.

Mr McNally is NOT interested in selling up, and we are confident that under Paul Lambert we will be back in the Championship next season.

Please do not say that the club is going under, as this is NOT the case!


Liverpool do not have alot of money to spend, but a move in January or the Summer for any of the following could be on the cards:
Ruud Van Nistelrooy – Real Madrid (Loan)
Rafael Van Der Vaart – Real Madrid (Loan with a view to being made permanent)
Roman Pavlyuchenko – Tottenham Hotspur (Loan)
David Bentley – Tottenham Hotspur (Loan)
Bojan Krkic – Barcelona (Loan unlikely to be made permanent over the summer as Barca are looking for up to £20m)
Adriano – Flamengo (Free, his contract expires soon but Liverpool, like many clubs are wary of gambling on him)
Diego Forlan – Atletico Madrid (£18m, the fee would have to be payed in the summer)
Carlton Cole – West Ham United (£12–£20m, the huge amount wanted by west ham will probably stall any deal, Liverpool want to pay around £8m)
Adam Johnson – Middlesborough (£6–10m, competition for his signature will determine the final price)
Micah Richards – Manchester Ciry (£7m)
Gonzalo Higuain – Real Madrid (£25–30m, despite his excellent form Real are looking to possibly offload at the end of the season, Pellegrini would rather hold on to him but if liverpool can find the money at the end of the season, he's a possible mover)
Javi Martinez – Athletic (£15m)
Juan Mata – Valencia (£25m, his form is likely to price Liverpool out of a move and will probably favour a move to Barca if Valencia sell)
Klass Jan–Huntelaar – AC Milan (£10m, the want–away striker is probably still too expensive to move in January)
Eljero Elia – Hamburg SV (£14m)
Patrick Viera – Inter Milan (Loan/Free)
Joe Cole – Chelsea (£8–20m, a massive difference in valuation between the teams not to mention the rivalry but may happen if Cole doesn't play games)
Angel Di Maria – Benfica (£20m)
Sergio Aguero – Atletico Madrid (£40m, more unlikely than Gary Neville joining Liverpool, that is at least with Liverpools current money issues, however if there is significant investment before the summer, Aguero, a boyhood Liverpool fan, is Rafa Benitez's first choice target. Liverpool would also have to stave off Barca, Real, Chelsea, Man City and Man Utd)

To fund even the lesser amounts money will be raised from sales of Voronin, Dossena and Degen who in all honesty would do well to raise around £8m. Babel is unlikely to be allowed to leave given Liverpool's current form. Riera, Lucas, Aurelio, Kuyt etc are not only well valued by Benitez, but at the very least good/decent first team members so it's unlikely they will leave either in January or the Summer without commanding a respectable fee. Mascherano is an unknown, his form has been, at times, erratic this year and clearly wanted to go to Barca last summer but Benitez is unlikely to want to sell another world class international midfielder whatever the price.

(#Also, whoever mentioned Jesus Navas to LFC, it is well known that Jesus Navas does not want to leave Seville never mind Spain due to what his club describes as 'chronic homesickness', in the past he has pulled out of the Spain national squads training camp)
