Cardiff City are going to sign Ryan Giggs in the January transfer window.

This has come about because Cardiff approached Man United about it in the summer and Giggs wanted to sign but Alex Ferguson changed his mind at the last minute.

derek mcinnis is set to be given 2.5 million pounds to spend in january. he will use this money to buy:
- neil danns- 2 year deal 1.5 million
- marlon pack- 3 year deal 750k
- Alex pearce- 3 month loan
- mathew bates- given a 1 yr deal
- 1 forward unknown to replace pitman.

leaving this window to make rooom for these signins will be:
- cole skuse- crystal palace 1 mil
-brett pittman- bornemouth 700k
- lewin nyatanga- stevenage 500k
- james wilson- sheff utd 250k

This will conclude the business done by bristol city fc this window. inside knowledge.

Is this guess work or do you know this?

Alex Pearce is stalling on signing a new contract, he is asking for 25k a week which Reading are not willing to match. He is hopeful of above to Liverpool in the January window. When Brendan Rodgers Reading manager he described Pearce as the next John Terry. He was our player of the season last year but has been sidelined recently due to not committing his future to Reading. As a Reading fan I would be quite content to see him go to Liverpool. A couple of million will do and we can buy an experienced CB such as Upson. Pearce is too slow for the Premier League.... but is never going to drop down a division this season, sorry Bristol City fans.

Will be lucky to get anything over 250,000 for Pitman as he is out of contract in the summer. Nyatanga is unlikely to yield that much either

Blackpool fans can expect a hectic January. Tom Ince, Matt Phillips, Barry Ferguson, and Kirk Broadfoot will go either forced out or with a offer too good to turn down being made in the cases of Ince and Phillips. Appleton has drawn up a list of replacements for this raid. Sheffield Wednesday forward Chris Maguire will join on loan until the end of the season. Luke Freeman will is also a target though the signing of him will depend on how tight Oyston decides to hold the purse strings. Anthony Wordsworth from Colchester also takes the managers liking. Dundee Utd's captain and star striker Jon Daly could be the most unexpected of Appleton's targets but Daly's abilities to lead the line and hold the ball up suites favourably and a bid of £1m could see the deal pushed through.

Gary Hooper will be leaving Celtic in January. My sources have revealed that although Hooper is happy at Celtic he would like to have a go in a higher standard of league. Hooper believes that a move to the PL would increase his chances of an England call up. Three clubs have shown an interest with Arsenal, QPR and Newcastle waiting to battle it out.

All 3 clubs I can assure you have not shown an interest.
Sunderland are believed to be the only side that have contacted his agent so far.

Hooper is SPL standard

Doncaster looking to keep highly rated keeper Gary Woods with Everton poised to make a January bid and also Stoke rumoured to be interested. Dean Saunders has already said any deal would have to involve a keeper on loan in return.

Stoke have already got 2 first class keepers why would they get another one.

Woodsy has been pritty good this season, but premier league standard, I think not.

Just heard from my next door neighbours cousins best friend (who works for Brighton FC)
that Brighton are losing patience with
manager Gus Poyet and that if they
lose their next game he will be sacked.
Brighton are reportedly interested in
speaking to Neil Warnock, who will be
backed with several million pounds to
spend in the January transfer window

Definitely likely to happen should Brighton lose
heard it here first.


Lol? We don't want Gus out yet!

Don't be silly

I heard from my next door neighbour but ones cousins best friends neighbours cousin who works for the club also, that they have 100% faith in gus and that his job is safe

Hang on, Brighton FC ?? clueless.

Lol not happening

Send him 2 Leeds now .& we all be happy

West Ham to bid for Gary Hooper in January .. friend of Gold let slip at charity dinner.



12 Dec 2012 11:18:40
Chris Powell is looking to shake up the Charlton squad but first he will need to clear some fringe players


Green - Swindon
Wagstaff - Tranmere or Bradford
Clarke - Bradford or Scunthorpe (loan)
Taylor - Exeter
Wright-Phillips - MK Dons or Swindon
Sulllivan - Colchester
Bover - Wycombe (loan)
Harriot - Barnet (loan)
Smith - Newport (perm deal after loan)


Morrison - Norwich (loan)
Guthrie - Reading (loan)
Seabourne - Southampton - (perm deal after loan)
Frimpong - Arsenal (perm deal after loan)
Davies - Fulham

What wishfull thinking ! Pure fantasy signings

Guthrie still part of reading he's been ill and had injuries which is why he's hasn't been playing

Green will not be sold he is our best winger at the club, god knows why he aint playing. I dought about seabourne as wiggins will be back. And he will not sell wright-phillips as hulse loan ending soon.

Seaborne can happen. Wouldn't be too bothered if we sold him and it'd be good for him to get a team he can actually feature for.

Other than Morrison all seem possible to me. Outgoings realistic too.

Guthrie nearly left to join Nottingham Forest on loan shortly after Reading signed him so it's not as unlikely as it sounds esoecially considering the events of last night.

Maybe seabourne the others no.

Guthrie hasn't been playing at Reading as he has fallen out with the manager on several different ocassions, will probably move on in Januray but to a higher club than Charlton, no disrespect to them!

Frimpong to Charlton is never going to happen, get real.

Watford's Fernando Forestieri is attracting serious interest from Premier League Clubs, with Arsenal thought to be keen on a move for the young attacker. However, Udinese would be asking for at least £3 million and Forestieri is thought to be keen to stay at the hornets after recently purchasing a house in the area.

He wont be moving until he has reached his peak in 3 or 4 years time. He's worth at least 5 million now, easily over 10 at his peak.

He's signing permanently for watford in january.

Udinese paid 18m for Foresteiri and he has an enormous release clause in his contract.

20m+ and they will sel him - however he is not worth anywhere close to that at the minute.

Udinese did not pay 18 million for him. They paid 4 million for him. Also watford are signing him, vydra, abdi and pudil in jan

Udinese bought him for 1.5m euros



12 Dec 2012 09:54:31
Scott wiseman interesting Premier Clubs could move in

I take it thats our scott wiseman at Barnsley

Please b true

12 Dec 2012 18:33:14
I doubt it. He's not even good enough for championship. He should be in league 2!



12 Dec 2012 09:40:44
Wealdstone will sign Brentford's Charlie Adams (not Charlie Adam) and Watford academy striker Alex Jakubiak on loan in January.



12 Dec 2012 06:29:14
Norwich City are set to snap up Norwegian trio of Viking FK Goalkeeper as a solid backup to Mark Bunn while John Ruddy is injured, Valerenga midfielder Mohammed Fellah who will sign a pre contract agreement with the Canaries in January so he can complete his full move in the Summer as a free transfer as the eventual replacement to Wes Hoolahan and also striker Mohammed Abdellaoue who is set to become the biggest transfer in the history of the club at a fee of £5.75m in a transfer from Hannover 96.

All of this sounds great apart from the keeper. We already have back up to Bunn in Rudd. He's named in our squad for a reason. Like the sound of the other two lads! Think hoolahan has a few years left though :)

OMG LOL that would be your biggest ever transfer budget :L nice..... but he is an over rated player and the Norwegian league isnt that good either tbh, if you want a young up and coming cheap striker id say your best off going for Luc Castaignos he is usually on the bench at inter milan but is going to be a top dutch striker!! so id go in for him worth a punt id say :) i rate the kid


So we are linked with a keeper with no name a midfielder said to be interesting Everton and a striker who plays in Germany wanted by Arsenal and West Ham, I think we have to aim lower maybe someone like Perbet from Mons.

Been so many links to Mohammed Abdellaoue but he's still not coming...honest!

Not the old adedellaoue rumour must come up every month lo ..

Let me guess this is Norwegian canary . You keep posting about Mohammed Abdellaoue. This is all fantasy

:-) No actually, this isnt me. Though I would love to see Moa in yellow, im aware of that he plays for Hannover 96... Not in the norwegian league, as the original poster said... Jarstein is not good enough for PL. He is brilliant at his best, and crap at his worts. He is rearly brilliant, and to often crap. Fellah is at best an ok player. Hes like David Fox in style, but not as good. He will not be an asset to Norwich. Moa though will be a guarante for 10- 15 goals. And hes a really nice guy....

Birmingham want to keep a hold of their prized assets i.e redmond and butland. But may keep it hard to keep their hands on King, Zigic,Burke and Davies as they want the players of the wage bill Davies has been linked with Southampton and Norwich so expect them to come in for him in Januart. Cardiff are looking to bring back Burke after leaving the welsh club 18 months ago to help with their push for automatic promotion. King is being looked at Notts Forest and Leeds. Although unlikely Zigic may be realeased as his 60,000 a week wages are crippling the club. A return to Spain is likely

King would fit right in at Leeds!
Would love davies at norwich, would offer a bit of competition for Turner a and Bassong who I think might be a little bit better!

Curtis Davies is going to Q.P.R along with Darren Bent.

No way are Forest going to bring King back to the club, cant see that one happening!

12 Dec 2012 13:25:21
after the abuse he gets when playin against forest dont think so! might get burke though, need right winger.

Darren Bent won't be going to QPR. He'll move to Norwich or Swansea or possibly Newcastle.

Cardiff dont need Burke back, he was rubbish for us at the end !!



12 Dec 2012 02:50:22
League has said Pompey will def get a
10 point deduction (the third in three
seasons) when they exit admin.
Still fancy them to stay up though and
if any fans deserve some good fortune,that, they they do!

I totally agree that they will stay up.Great supporters.From Notts County fan.

Cheating should get relegated why should other clubs have to live withing there means when they can just spend and spend without having the money in the first place

I new the Grinch wouldn't be too far away from this thread!



12 Dec 2012 01:59:49
Shock move on the cards as out-of-favour forward Luis Nani looks for a loan move to boost confidence with a spell at Serie A side, Roma.



12 Dec 2012 00:55:16
There is a strong rumour that Ollie Palmer (Havant and Waterlooville) could be on the move to Huddersfield Town. The 6' 5" striker is currently top scorer in blue square south and is also on the interest list of Derby County and several south coast clubs.

Chelsea were interested in this guy, could be the next Rickie lambert, Charlie Austin, or grant holt. all came from non league but can most definately score goals at any level. This lad isn't even 25 yet too,

Cant see the terriers risking bringing in a non league player when they are looking to survuve in the champions ship , thats a very big step up that few could make in such a short time, anyone brought in in january will be expected to hit the ground running
