Swedish wonder-kid Rinor Nushi, 16, is set to join Crystal Palace on trial with a view of a permanent transfer. West Ham had him on trial earlier in the season and looked set to tie up the deal, though Crystal Palace will look to tempt him to Palace with the more likely option of first-team football and a much more prestigious academy system. Juventus, Manchester United and Arsenal have all scouted Nushi, but Palace have been the first team to make a move.

I've heard Watford are also after this youngster on loan, and with a better acadamy and better playing prospects it's unsure who he'll go on trial with.



12 Jan 2013 18:54:13
Steve Clarke has decided that he will need to invest in his squad following his side's late defeat at Reading, despite comments that he wouldn't sign anybody.

Middlesbrough looking to loan alexander buttner from manchester united as he has not been getting his game and is looking to gain valuable experience

Why would boro even look at another left back never mind a poor one like him when we have George friend?, if he's looking for first time footy then he's looking at the wrong club!

Charlie Austin to cardiff



12 Jan 2013 16:08:34
Gary Johnson is targeting a loan move for Sam Johnstone who is surplus to requirements at Manchester United at the moment, should a substantial offer for in form keeper Marek Stech come in from a championship club. George Saville of Chelsea is also a sought after by a host of League One clubs, but it is unlikely that he will come to Yeovil over a London-based club.
Berty, YTFC season ticket holder since 1999

Would absoluety love it if george Saville came to Yeoo! Class young midfielder!



12 Jan 2013 15:25:05

QPR want Fabricio Coloccini

Coloccini wants to go back to argentina long way from shepards bush .try keeping up with the football news

More to the point - who don't QPR want! they are linked to more players than all the Premiership clubs put together.

Collocini has only requested a transfer to move back to Argentina not to London...?



12 Jan 2013 14:03:52

Was he ever in favour?

Can the rest of the squad that are not in favour go with him and take DMc on your way out.

12 Jan 2013 18:17:47

Lets get himb4 mick



12 Jan 2013 11:50:48
Rumour Curtis Davies was at the match last night and is having a medical for wolves today

That would leave Walsall and he has then played for all of them



12 Jan 2013 11:42:45
Swansea City are in talks with Osasuna to sign Belgium attacker Roland Lamah.

Hes going to standard liege

Looking at his stats they don't look to impressive. Think I'd rather bongoura

12 Jan 2013 11:47:08
Arsenal are very set on trying to sign Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia but do not want to match their asking price of £8.35 million. sounds about right, wenger trying to get someone for next to nothing.

He's so tight and biglia isn't good enough anyway



12 Jan 2013 11:38:47
Arsenal set to sign the following players:

Loic Remy- 10 million
Urby Emmanuelson- 3 million
Moussa Sissoko- 2.5 million

Emmanuelson is worth a lot more



12 Jan 2013 11:38:40
Robert Earnshaw set to join Watford as a replacement for Troy Deeney

Watford have much better strikers in vydra, forestieri, geijo, deeney, assombolonga, beleck and even mensah. Deeney is going absolutely nowhere as well, signing new contract soon as this week.

Replacement? And Deeney is going where, exactly?

Deeneys not leaving so that won't happen and 2 very different players

Laughable - what a load of tosh

In the unlikely event deeney did leave
( he is currently in contract negotiations) the replacement wouldnt be earnshaw. it would be our existing bench player Geijo or another Udinese loan player

Obviously a Cardiff fan on a wind-up.

Going to Sheffield Wednesday

This is nonsense

Troy Deeney isn't leaving and Rob Earnshaw isn't good enough for this Watford team.
If we needed a striker, we'd get one from Udinese anyway.

Even if Troy were to go, why would we want Earnshaw. He's an aging player. Watford main thing at the moment is to find younger, more talented players. Can't see this happening.

Hardly Pozzo material

This won't happen as we already have better strikers fighting for a place in the first team



12 Jan 2013 11:28:21
Manchester City striker John Guidetti looking to go out on loan to a prem club. Great potential, great target for Norwich, not having to spend a fortune, save some money for the summer.

Totally agree. Really good player although apparently Southampton and Sunderland are chasing him.



12 Jan 2013 11:06:50
arsenal look set to sign the following:

Loic Remy- 10 million
Urby Emmanuelson- 3 million
Moussa Sissooko- 2.5 million



12 Jan 2013 11:04:30
Middlesbrough are preparing a multi paramo offer for Boltons Kevin Davies. Tony Mowbray looking for value or money and won't meet Boltons demands of a hot shot Parmo. This will happen towards the end of the Window.

What does multi paramo/hot shot parmo mean?

12 Jan 2013 19:39:06
Middlesbrough are in negotiations to sign Stoke Midfielder Wilson Palacios on loan, the deal will happen if a deal can be compromised over his wages.

Middlesbrough turn down 1m offer from QPR for Jonathon Woodgate.

Tony Mowbray has offered Graeme Dorrans first team action if West Brom agree to a 2m deal plus add ons.

Jason Steele available if an offer of 5m comes in. Fulham could be interested, with David Stockdale eyeing a return home to North East as part of the deal.

Lukas Jutkiewicz eyeing a move back to the midlands if Wolves agree a swap involving Sylvain Ebanks-Blake.

Adam Reach set to choose 3 month loan switch to either Hartlepool, Swindon or York.

Scott McDonald linked to a 2m move back to Celtic if Southampton pay 5m for Gary Hooper.



12 Jan 2013 10:40:36
I have heard that stoke have made a cheeky bid for Ashley cole they have bid 2.5 mil to Chelsea as his contract short and have offered cole 60 grand a week wiv a signing on fee of 3 mil

I would doubt he will come to us. Would be a nice thought though!. I still think we will end up with a fullback but Martin Olsson must be favorite.

With Kenwyne Jones looking to leave and Swansea looking like his destination, it wouldn't suprise me is Pulis goes for Carlton Cole for the umteenth time.

Not gonna happen, he won't go 2 stoke

Heitinga would be a useful signing for stoke very adaptable



12 Jan 2013 10:34:57
Eddie Johnson is in talks with Cardiff and looks set to make a return as the Championship leaders want to add another striker as cover to the injured Maynard.

I don't think so...he didn't do much for us the last time he was with us......stokebluebird



12 Jan 2013 10:34:29
Stephen Mcphail available on loan from Cardiff, if City could get him in would be a brilliant bit of business by Parky! {Ed013's Note - Bradford then?}

Would rather buy someone than another loanee

He would be a great addition for Bradford. Still easily championship level a real quality player who needs game time. I'd love to see him knock in the winner for you at awe mobley especially if you're playing the people



12 Jan 2013 10:25:29
rob earnshaw, stephen mcphail & velikonja all to go out on loan....earshaw probably loaned then sold as he is considerd a spare part in Cardiff's future plans!
Mcphail to gain some game time and match fitness as malky still considers him to play his role for cardiff? and velikonja wants game time but is finding it hard to break through at the moment, especially as Cardiff are looking for another striker during this window!

I heard Rob Earnshaw was being eyed up by Port Vale. Hope not!



12 Jan 2013 10:23:01
Swansea are close to adding Rayo Vallecano winger Lass Bangoura to their ranks this January and Jose Canas will join Swansea but in the summer as Swansea see it would be better to wait 6 months and get him on a free rather than pay 1million now.



12 Jan 2013 09:05:05
Villarreal are close to signing 32 year old Gaizka Saizar from relegation threatened Racing Santander. The former Levante player is set to run out his contract in the summer so the Segunda Division side are wanting to sell quickly.



12 Jan 2013 10:05:57
Athletico Madrid, Manchester United, Southampton and Liverpool all linked with Rayo Valleceno Forward Leo Baptists who could leave for around £5m



12 Jan 2013 09:44:40
MK Dons to sign former loanee Aaron Doran from Inverness this week. £50,000. Alex Rae has watched him two or three times this season. Carl Robinson is keen to get him back at the Dons, but needs to offload players first.

Offloaded Jay O'shea and Charlie MacDonald!



12 Jan 2013 09:31:01
Nigel Pearson looking to overhaul Leicester's midfield - bid expected early next week for Redmond and enquiry made for a Tottenham player on loan

Don't think he will overhaul the midfield. A tweak or two if needed for either injuries, suspensions or tactics. Perhaps a more physical player needed to combat the more physical teams. But he will not want to upset the team spirit and balance.



12 Jan 2013 09:26:18
Martin Petrov leaving Bolton to sign for Espanyol. Currently undergoing medical and finalising terms. Shame as he has been one of our best players when given a chance but both Coyle and Freedman never gave him much game time.



12 Jan 2013 09:13:32
Newcastle United have made a £10 million bid for Maxime Gonalons, who currently plays in France for Lyon.



12 Jan 2013 09:10:59
Manchester City have accepted two permanent bids from sides wanting to sign their Belgian defender Dedryck Boyata. The 22 year old was transfer listed last week after being recalled from his loan spell at FC Twente.
The favourites for his signature are Chelsea. A surprise offer from City's Premier League rivals as manager Rafa Benitez wants more competition in defensive positions.
The second club wanting the out of favour player is Leicester City. City are always keen on recruiting young talent but still seem to be sitting as an outside bet for Boyata.

I think you might find that Forest are also interested in him!



12 Jan 2013 09:06:22
Newcastle United are in talks with Middlesbrough midfielder Emmanuel Ledesma over a two and a half year deal after an undisclosed bid was accepted late Thursday night.

No chance just signed

Cant see this happening tbh unless they have made a silly offer we've only just signed him and he's a key player for us. Tow

Guna cost them quite a bit if its true

8 million and he's yours.

Would be a welcoming bid coz it'll take at least a mil to net him now and we could sign another 5 ledesmas with that



12 Jan 2013 09:02:14
Manchester United have offered £3 million for young Rayo Vallecano striker Ruben Ramiro.



12 Jan 2013 09:02:00
Theo Walcott is holding out for a summer move to man utd to link up with former teamate robin van persie and to get the chance to form a better partnership with Wayne Rooney and Ashley young for England

No he's not, he's signing a new deal at arsenal



12 Jan 2013 08:45:15
Fulham have made a play for young Australian tallent Tomas Rogic who is currently trialling with Celtic in spain.

Been on Reading's radar for some time. Currently spending a week on trial in Spain with Celtic. Reading fc confirm the player will decide within the next 7 days after Reading agreed fee with the players club. Welcome to party Fulham.



12 Jan 2013 08:41:46
Sol Campbell heading back to the emirates in a coaching roll to help their shakey defence



12 Jan 2013 08:35:49
Norwich and Reading seem to always be after the same players now it Iis Carlton.Cole

As a norwich fan...........a big fat NO thanks.

As a reading fan. NO! we need an attacking midfielder. all our midfielders are defensive, except for guthrie and he's very tempremental. cmon reading just once spend a bit of money and show some balls.

I will cry if this happens, bigger donkey than heskey - reading fan

We have Pog we don, t need him

Coles a good player better then holt

Seconded by a Reading fan..........a big fat NO thanks.



12 Jan 2013 08:24:53
Just saw Danny welbeck at the mad stad so a deal still could be on.

He won't go anywhere, i would be amazed if Utd let him go. If you think about it all Utd need is an injury or two, the odd suspension and he is in the side and with them in the CL, FA cup and going for the Prem there is no way sir Alex would let him go at this crucial stage



12 Jan 2013 08:20:07
Logic remy won't be coming to qpr as he wouldn't even speak to redknap about a possible move

12 Jan 2013 12:21:26
Yes, excellent "Logic"!



12 Jan 2013 08:14:10
Reading and Norwich are looking at carton cole

He won't come to reading after what happened with him and Alex Pearce when he punched him

Just looking I hope.



12 Jan 2013 07:40:20

12 Jan 2013 06:07:51
Sheffield Wednesday looking at signing Spurs youngster Souleymane Coulibaly on loan



12 Jan 2013 05:42:49
why don't carlisle council box clever and say to Andrew Tinkler you rebuild brunton park and we will let you build your airport, club will be finished of we move to kingmoor, lee miller asked for acopy of his contract other day, hope he isnt going

Heard millers off to join sevco fc in scottish 3rd division in summer (thats the team once called rankers)

Because they have already approved the airport it is just a farmer who is trying to appeal and brunton park is unsafe ground and can't be expanded in the future, because of flood defences which would cost about 2 million to move



12 Jan 2013 05:41:04
Phil Parkinson turns down chance to speak to Blackpool..... Well done Phil, keep the faith......

Parky's a real pro with morals and high standards. Knew him personally when he was a player at Reading, was a fully committed player and it's good to see his team playing exactly how he used to, 100% grit. Can see him going all the way. One for the future. Wish him well.

Oyston should put Kevin phillips and steve thomspon in charge till end of season. If it works then give them a proper contract if not then we have the summer to find a new manager.

But i think kev and tommo would work really well. Come on the mighty pool.
Ollies tangerine army. I mean

Super kevs mighty tangerine army
Come on the pool

Message to Blackpool FC. Please come and entice your former hero from Huddersfield Town. Signed Simon Grayson

Swansea City have bid 7m for Tom Ince of Blackpool.

Good, it will save Liverpool wasting more money on a player who is not going to improve their squad. Hope you get him Swansea.

West Brom keeper Luke Daniels is to be loaned out to league one side Walsall on a one month loan

Bristol city's joe Edwards is joining Yeovil for 100k!
Bristol also have had a bid accepted of 750k plus nyatanga player could be in the stands tomorrow it's thought to be Crawley defender macfadzean also jody Morris and 150k for Murray Davidson from st Johnson they have also made a bid for a young man city right back who has been in great form on loan at Oldham and have made enquiry about 2 other CB macmanus Is going back to boro with mark Wilson releasedtg that will be 5 out with 2 others expected to leave before end of jan expected to be Elliot and fountain as there HasBeen enquires about these players and Matt bates been offered 6 month deal while frank fletsher is to be looked at again in another friendly it's possilble could join on loan with a view to perm deal at the end of the season

I'm always skeptical when I see "player swap" stories - they are seldom correct

1 Yeovil don't have 100k
2 why would we pay money for a player we can get for free in the summer
3 We don't actually need joe Edwards

Wabara back at Latics and playing today,,, fact

I doubt if a swap will work, I suspect Nyatanga will have to take a hell of a drop in wages. Plus why would Crawley pay for a player that would be free in the summer.

The man city Rb that impressed at Oldham, Reece Wabara has just extended his loan with us...

We do need Joe Edwards! Quality Player!



12 Jan 2013 01:46:06
Port vale are looking to sign Carl Dickinson on loan from Watford according to the mail online.

Ive herd this to would be a great signing

But he played for Stoke! Would the Vale fans want him?

He is not he best but he is one of the most hardworking and whole heart'd players you will find football.

Reported in the local paper. Carl still lives in Tean, Stoke-on-Trent, so this move would bring him home. However, he's tweeted to the effect "no truth".

12 Jan 2013 22:23:37
Carl has stated on twitter that he has not heard anything about this rumour



12 Jan 2013 01:24:14
