Reece Brown is to be offered terms at portman rd following his release from old trafford he's also has an offer from bristol but looks set to agree terms from ipswich where he spent time on loan

Only played 28 games over 4 years for various loan clubs

Young and decent prospect. on a free. low wages. well worth signing as would add great depth to the squad.

So what if he's only played a handful of games. He's 21, and was never going to knock Vidic, Ferdinand, Jones or Smalling out of the 1st team. Doesn't mean he won't be good enough for the championship.



12 Jun 2013 21:09:01
Rotherham striker Alex Revell is a target for Oldham to replace the departing Matt Smith who has signed for Leeds. Despite Revell been voted player of the year last season, Evans is close to signing Rory Donnelly of Swansea who is a similar sort of player to Revell but is younger and scores more goal. Therefore Evans is willing to let the big man leave for free, even though he signed a contract extension only a few months ago.

Revs won't leave there were rumours other week and he said was commited to rotherham evans won't let him go

Revs won't leave. There were rumours the other week, but he said that he was committed to Rotherham. Evans won't let him go.



12 Jun 2013 21:43:27
I understand Ipswich Town are on the verge of completing the signing of Tranmere Rovers goalkeeper, Owain Fon Williams, on a free transfer.

Williams, has held talks with Ipswich, and my understanding is his medical has also taken place. McCarthy seems him as good competition for Scott Loach, and as after transfer, he feels it's a deal he can't miss out on.

Underated goalkeeper with low wages and on a free. Sign him up Mick!

As far as I recall, Fonners has another year left on his current deal?

I could be wrong, but Mooney will be a good replacement if Fon Williams decides to move on.

Decent keeper would be good signing hope it happens

It would be sad for Tranmere to lose Fon Williams because he is a really good goalkeeper.

He clearly hasn't got another year on his deal as he's a free agent.



12 Jun 2013 21:31:36
Amido Balde deal has not gone through yet, and may still not go through, because a bogus 'agent' (who also claims inaccurately to be his uncle) by the name of Catio Balde jumped on to the deal and turned up with the player. Said Catio Balde is in fact a former agent whose licence has been revoked, who then had the not so grand idea of trying to arrange an UK front for the deal.

The player does have an actual UK agent who Celtic failed to contact and the whole thing has become a mess, with that agent not prepared to turn up until Catio is out of the way.

So the deal far from done. Celtic need to put Catio Balde back on a plane.

So a bald cats to blame next year celtic could start up front with balde t. watt up front?

13 Jun 2013 14:16:06
his agents names langley or summit he was there as well. catio is his uncle




12 Jun 2013 21:25:06
Roumor has it, southampton have bid £6m plus a player for Thomas ince. Player believed to be fox

13 Jun 2013 08:36:07
Palace bound, deal done

Would love to see young Ince in a Saints shirt, think he could do a great job for us, hope it's true.

I heard this but the player we were swapping was Punch

Palace bound, deal done - who told you that Ince himself. palace will go straight back down. Ince will go to a top 6-8 club

Only thing I can see about him to saints is from 2012. Where's this new rumour coming from?

Don't go saying to Palace fans they'll go straight back down. We had to endure that cr*p last season and it's pointless cause you can't possibly know. They actually have, in my view, better chances than one or two teams in this league at survival for the next season but most of all, we haven't had the transfer window yet.

I don't think Palace will go straight down and I think he is Palace bound, he'd be great at saints but he's more likely to get 1st team football at Palace

Wouldn't want Ince, good player but has an annoying interfering dad who tries to relive his career through his son!
Could do without the tv interviews all the time saying his son is as good as Jesus would've been had he played football!

I've always thought of Jesus as a hockey man myself

Nah, that was red faced Rupert,
scourge of anything football.
Doubt that, remember Tommy Forecast.



12 Jun 2013 21:24:31
Doncaster boss' Paul Dickov will use his Man City contacts to try and tie up a loan deal for John Guidetti, although they're likely to face competition from several clubs.



12 Jun 2013 20:48:34
Everton interested in Callum McManaman and James McCarthy.

Everton to become the new wigan lol



12 Jun 2013 20:35:13
Crystal Palace have bid £4m for Everton's Victor Anichebe, with the Nigerian International keen to move to London.

I really hope not! Rather have Wilbraham



12 Jun 2013 20:30:09
Connor Wickham is going on a season long loan deal to Nottingham Forest. DiCanio thinks he needs regular games and cannot garuntee that at the stadium of light.

Its Sheffield Wednesday not Nottingham Forest



12 Jun 2013 19:58:18
Colchester paper reporting that Joe Dunne has lined up Sanchez Watt on a 2 year deal, plus season long loans for Bradley Garmston, Sam Walker & Billy Clifford.

He has said talks are going well.

On the other hand, it appears John White, Mark Cousins & Jabo Ibehre have stalled on their new deals, Dunne saying he won't wait for long before moving onto other targets.

Should Ibehre move on then the U's will need to replace him with another forward, plenty of available players this summer.

Nope. Cousins has just signed a new deal. Does seem likely White's off though - with Bradford and Southend rumoured destinations.



12 Jun 2013 20:11:27
Liverpool to sign
Iago Aspas - 7 Million
Kolo Toure - Free
Younes Belhanda - 7 Million
Luis Alberto - 5 Million

Gonna need more than 7 million to get Belhanda, more like 15 million

Please not Belhanda. Perfer Mcmanaman



12 Jun 2013 20:09:05
Hartlepool manager Colin Cooper's number 1 summer target is Calvin Zola and he will complete a deal for the striker when he returns from a charity mountain climb next week. Zola is out of contract at Burton and has told the club he wants to move.

12 Jun 2013 21:22:29
Likely to sign for Notts County, deal agreed apparently.

Wouldn't move to Hartlepool, lives near Liverpool, wants somewhere closer to home.



12 Jun 2013 20:00:04
Plymouth Argyle have made a 50k bid for Kidderminster Harriers striker Anthony Malbon.

This is so random it could be true, named in the conference team of the season

Cannot see argyle buying anyone especially in todys market. where you can get players free due to them being released by their present clubs

We havnt got 50p

We won't get another player from the conference, Rhys Griffiths (welsh division) okay but he was carp, and Paris Cowan Hall hasn't been anything either

Cowan-Hall was from the Blue Square South and the welsh league is just rubbish. We could afford 50k but can't see it happening. Some of you are clueless

Argyle got 600k budget.

Argyle don't have a 600,000 budget. I know on good authority that Brent wants to make up his squad with a transfer budget between £70k and £100k. Along with free agents and loanees! That comes from an Argyle coach!


Paris Cowan Hall hasn't been anything? He was great for us this season, shame Sheridan doesn't play him as much as he should.

He was great?! are you sure he is awful only 1 good thing about him is that he darts in the box and goes down easy



12 Jun 2013 20:03:48
Former rangers striker chris boyd in talks with sheffield united. also says in the paper he is wanted by weir and has been offerd a chance to do coaching badges with the club



12 Jun 2013 20:02:20
Oxford are announcing four signings by the end of the week. 3 definates are:
Danny Rose from Fleetwood
David Hunt from Crawley
Callum Kennedy from Scunthorpe

Possibly true

Danny Rose and David Hunt have now officially signed - source OUFC website

Well the first 2 have been confirmed

Rose and Hunt confirmed (OUFC WEBSITE)

Kennedy strongly linked for the past week



12 Jun 2013 20:00:52
Ipswich are considering a bid for Morcombe striker Jack Redshaw

Rubbish. Chopra going, McGoldrick and Murphy in, Mick now wants a striker with 20 goals a season in him.



12 Jun 2013 19:39:29
Francois Zoko looks likely to move away from Notts County with Tranmere and Oldham tracking his progress.

12 Jun 2013 21:31:41
tranmere nor Oldham can afford zoko

County can. but Oldham / Tranmere can't? hmmm.

Mmmmm Oldham could if we wanted, CUP RUN made over a million for our club. lol

We don;t want him anyway.



12 Jun 2013 18:59:06
Joan Verdu could announce his move to Southampton tomorrow afternoon.
The player has a press conference tomorrow and is believed to be leaving espanyol on the 1st July, when his contract expires.
Athletic Madrid are also interested, but with links to poch and the money in the English game saints are slight favourites for the spaniards signature!

Fingers crossed!


Err no way would NC allow someone to announce to press they are joining us without a saints fc person present or more likely an official saints unveiling. His press conference is likely to be along the lines of either committing his future to espanyol to end speculation or to announce he is leaving & is in talks with other clubs

He is comming to Olympiacos FC

Wot a team in greece

Gone to greece for CL football, we don't even need a player in his position anyway, we have Davis, JWP, Ramirez and Lallana who can play in his postion



12 Jun 2013 18:29:51
Ipswich want tranmeres owain fon Williams who's available on a free transfer

Does anyone know how true this is? As think he a very decent keeper and would love to see him at town



12 Jun 2013 18:26:56
Northampton Centre Back John Johnson to sign for Oxford. Also, Luke Gutteridge has turned down latest reduced contract offer from the Cobblers

Hunt & Rose have signed. Source Oxford Mail

Good signing for us if it is true. And the author of the original info suggests Guttridge not happy with the deal he has been offered. We are linked to him every close season, so maybe he may also be an option.



12 Jun 2013 18:05:07
Marcello Trotta is set for a season on loan at Peterborough after a successful season at Brentford last term

Trotta needs to join a club permanantly


Dont let him take the pens then lol

Lazy and very little talent (also crap at penalties!) :-)

Hope he doesn't come back to the Bees. Penalty miss aside he just doesn't work hard enough!


Trottra better not come back



12 Jun 2013 18:06:23
Yeovil linked with Stevenage player Haber along with rangers and notts county

Nice bench warmer for you

Deal set to be done this week



12 Jun 2013 17:50:31
Nottingham forest set to sign Daniel Bentley from Southend Utd for 75,000 on a 5 year contract. Billy Davies sees young Bentley as an Excellent prospect along with current number 1 Karl Darlow. Davies will loan Bentley straight back to Southend utd for a season

Dont see why this would happen when forest have Darlow (A possible England keeper) Evtimov (Bulgarian youth keeper and also football league apprentice of the year) AND the Kuwaiti international keeper Khaled-Al-Rashidi who is a terrific keeper. If you want more then the academy keeper Jordan Smith is also very highly rated.

This won't happen. Bentley signed a new 3 year contract. He is settled down in Essex as he is from Basildon and has no intention of leaving his Boyhood team.

Forest would have to pay a lot more than that to get dan to leave blues or for blues to let him leave.

13 Jun 2013 13:17:53
this will happen he wants to play as high as possible. billy gona loan him back for a season or to a league 1 team

He has said he wants to stay at Southend

At least double that price



12 Jun 2013 17:28:33
Millwall midfielder James Henry is set to sign for Bolton Wanderers this week after a bid was accepted.

If true & i stress if true how much?

I would of thought that SL will have a chat with Henry 1st before there is any talk of a transfer away surely?!

If TRUE? Who accepted the bid?

Cant see any key, contracted players leaving Millwall untill SL has had a chat with them.

Would rather have Liam Trotter to be a Trotter, always liked him

15 Jun 2013 18:03:44
bolton not interested in central midfilders. we need wide men like hall and emnes



12 Jun 2013 17:25:31
Amido balde passed medical at celtic signing to be announced tomorrow most likely.

Deal not yet done due to problems with Balde's agent. Agent is an unlicensed charlatan that the player himself does not even recognise. he just turned up



12 Jun 2013 17:25:02
Bury are looking to add Forest Green defender Eddie Oshodi to their threadbare squad

They'll need to shell out a fair bit if they want him. He's got 2 years left on his contract and FGR are loaded and won't let anyone go on the cheap.



12 Jun 2013 17:39:25
Jon Stead, Simon Church and Gary Madine have all been linked with BCAFC and PP is expected to make a decision on to sign one of them by the end of next week, it is more likely to be Simon Church on a free after he was released by Reading and could well be Madine on a season long loan from Wednesday.

Marlon Pack is expected to sign by the end of next week aswell from Cheltenham as the club and the players agent are talking about his wage, they have agreed compensation with Cheltenham.

Bradford also need a back-up goalkeeper to super Jonny Mac and is most likely to be someone young or somebody over 30.

Also wanting a winger Jacques Maghoma has been mentioned, also Jimmy Ryan was also mentioned until he signed for Chesterfield and James O'Shea has been mentioned.

Pack will not move to Bradford, how this "deal" has got this far is amusing though as the player is on holiday!

Will be hugely surprised if Marlon moves to Bradford. Don't think he could move that far away from his hometown of Pompey. Also he has Championship teams after him so why would he turn them down for Bradford?

I think you will find it says we are speaking to the players agent. Not the player himself

In the T&A today that Pack (and Calvin Zola) are well down the pecking order of Bradford targets so I doubt it

If the James o'shea you mention is the one at chesterfield then no chance.

Jay won't leave, happy with the future and management of the club

It adds up with pack, his agent would do the early work on the deal, and pp has said he may have to wait this could be because he's on holiday

13 Jun 2013 20:42:28
phill parkinson set to sign ryan dickson, blair turgott for impressing him. And nick powell from manchester united

Dont need dickson, Turgott I would have on loan for a season and we have no chance with Powell. love these rumours

Pack has no less than ten clubs interested, most of em championship clubs



12 Jun 2013 17:17:31
Burnley are going to allow Keith Treacy to leave the club this summer. Bradford City are in talks with the winger and a deal could be completed within the next 2-3 weeks.

If this is true then I can well see Treacy being a makeweight in a deal for Wells.

Treacy should be worth 200k or so towards the deal!

No, the deal is not involving Wells. Keith Treacy is not wanted at Burnley and has been allowed to talk to Bradford City. A fee of £80,000 has been agreed plus an extra £20,000 if Bradford City get promoted in the first season.

More than 100k although he isn't all that

On his way to Sheffield Wednesday

A no. 2 keeper to sign for burnley this afternoon

Re number 2 keeper signing for us - we already have one.

If this is true then that would be a great sighing for bradford as he is a beast of a player!

Alex cisak

Yes he's from accy Stanley fact

If Treacey is a makeweight for Wells, then Wells must be carrying some timber! Wherever he goes he will disappoint - because it's not aptitude that KT lacks, rather attitude.

Think you will find its Oldham. FACT!!!

Keith Treacy is being lined up by Bradford as a replacement for Kyel Reid who is expected to return to the South to be with his family

Hes not from accy stanley FACT, he used to play for accy but the fact is we got him on a free from oldham, think oldham didn't take up the option to extend his contract. Now that's a FACT! UTC



12 Jun 2013 17:13:49
All this talk of Bent & Newcastle is rubbish, Newcastle enquired about him but won't pay the asking price.

Bent is to meet with Fulham who are set to make a bid of 6m for the striker

Newcastle are turning their attention to prolific Ivorian Wilfred Bony

Gerry the Magpie



12 Jun 2013 17:02:12
Partick Thistle hope to complete the signings of right back, Kieran Duffie and midfielder Scott Arfield in preparation for the SPL campaign.



12 Jun 2013 15:51:51
Sanchez Watt is to be confirmed as a Crawley Town player in the next day.


Hope not. Thought we stopped recruiting conference standard players 3 seasons ago.

Your a bit of a person ain't you? He is a good player he is fast played at championship level he will score goals

13 Jun 2013 08:39:04
He has played well when on loan at a few clubs in the past and as a former Arsenal youth player will prove to be a good player once fully developed.

Watt is good and I have heard that he is defo signing also john Bostock to be announced soon

Crawley will confirm signings of sanchez watt and Jonathan Bostock shortly

Good Sanchez watt is good and he scores good goals which is what crawley need

Crawley want Tubbs. Not Watt



12 Jun 2013 15:11:36
Morecambe will be casting their eye over Ryan Watson when the player returns from holiday. Ryan was released by Wigan when the club were relegated from the Premier League. Manager Jim Bentley hopes Watson will bring some flair to the midfield.

This story is believable, although Morecambe have enough central midfielders, Jim Bentley should be looking for 2 widemen, and another Forward



12 Jun 2013 16:11:37
Derby challenging Cardiff for signing of big central defender Mike Williamson from Newcastle. Pardew is a big fan of Will Hughes and may use Williamson as part of a cash plus player deal.

12 Jun 2013 19:46:25
Makes sense as he is an ex watford player and that's the extent of malkys scouting system.

12 Jun 2013 21:03:55
Let Cardiff have him much better cb out there for free

Hope cardiff dnt sign him we need better imo.

You can rule Derby out.

We want a CB with a low wage, if on a permanent deal.

We want Will Hughes back on loan not a part exchange for a player.

We want a CB on loan for 6 months before club captain Shaun barker returns.

? I don't think derby will be in for Williamson.

Good steady CB but will resist any return to the Championship if Watford's experience with him is anything to go by.



12 Jun 2013 16:26:13
As I posted this morning, Balde has signed a four year deal with Celtic.



12 Jun 2013 15:30:09
Brentford will sign the following players

Lee Hodson Watford
Jake Bidwell Everton
Bradley Wright Phillips Charlton
Dean Inman Hampton
Tom Adeyemi Norwich

Adeyemi got released so he's all yours

13 Jun 2013 14:16:18
Brentford have failed to lure Adeyemi to sign wants to play at a higher level he's said!

That's if a championship club wants him. He's better off staying with Brentford for another year them he might be ready for the step up



12 Jun 2013 15:24:55
Brian McDermott is keen on bringing Steve Sidwell to Leeds.



12 Jun 2013 15:24:25
Alex Pearce only has one contract offer on the table following his departure from Reading. Pearce turned down £25,000 a week to secure a lucrative Premier League move after being linked with Liverpool, Sunderland, Newcastle, West Brom and Cardiff. His former manager, Brian McDermott, is looking to bring him into Leeds but is only willing to pay the centre-back about half of what Reading offered.

He may yet go back to Reading and see if he can accept their last contract offer, or have other teams swoop.

Get lost Pearce, you badge kissing person, don't want you back at RFC. You're 1 of the reasons we got relegated as you unsettled the whole club. Also you've been totally stitched by your greedy, stupid agent. {Ed003's Note - =-O }

We don't want Pearce back terrible and a money grabber. No passion.

Pearce your a disgrace to a Reading shirt we never will welcome you back you so look for a club in league 1 your really no better than that. And as you have the same agent as HRK take him with you! Both of you are so deluded you really need another agent your both nowhere near being premier league players take a long hard look in the mirror

Pearce when you grow up you'll look back with regret. Biting the hand that feeds you with a total lack of respect toboth fans and club. It takes more than being a decent footballer to be a professional.



12 Jun 2013 15:07:45
Exeter City midfielder Matt Oakley is set to sign a 1 year deal. The announcement will be made by Friday afternoon.

Exeter are also set to offer Jamie Cureton a fresh 1 year deal at St. James Park. This is why his move to Cheltenham Town has been delayed as Cureton would prefer to remain at St. James Park under Paul Tisdale.

Cureton will be not be staying at Exeter. He is expected to sign with Cheltenham when he returns from his holiday.

Exeter have already confirmed that Cureton will be leaving. Cureton is returning from holiday shortly and will sign for Cheltenham then.

Cureton has agreed a deal with Cheltenham and has turned down an approach from Pompey.
The reason it has not been announced is because Jamie Cureton is away on holiday and returns today.
He will be unveiled as a Cheltenham player next week.

Would love to see him stay, however I wish him all the best at cheltenham. Not sure he'll play to much though



12 Jun 2013 14:58:21
Colchester are close to signing Daniel Johnson from Aston villa.

Not likely - he's just re-signed with Aston Villa on a 2 year deal.

Is that why he just signed a new contract?



12 Jun 2013 14:54:27
Dave Cotterill is being shown around the facilities at deep dale today ahead of a proposed move to Preston north end. Doncaster value their man at 500k and Simon Grayson is said to have matched that.

12 Jun 2013 20:51:27
he is in dubai according to the man himself on social media, try again.

We can't afford that, let alone on one player.

Is that dave (david) cotterill who is in dubai at the minute or another one

No chance

He was our best player with rob jones last year so I dnt think he will be dropping to preston a leauge below when he will be guaranteed a place in starting line up dnt no were some of these rumours come from

100% not true, he's is Dubai on holiday

Good player but Preston have a fill compliment of wingers.

Swop deal, Cotterill for Hume, perhaps?

I'd say he's worth at least 1.5m to 2m after watching him last season

Load of cobblers that. If anyone would sign him, after last years excellent performances, he'd be moving upwards not downwards. Try again.



12 Jun 2013 14:44:57
Eddie Howe says NO bids have been made for ANY players, that includes Tubbs.



12 Jun 2013 14:44:03
Vigiurs has signed 2yr deal at motherwell Gunnar Nielsen has said yes to coming to fir park aswel David clarkson due to meet McCall on Friday as for Greg Wylde he has until Monday to decide on pittordrie or fir park amongst other offers



12 Jun 2013 14:38:49
Huddersfield Town have agreed terms with out-of-contract Norwich City defender Elliot Ward, with the deal expected to he announced on the 1st of July

Well he is out of contract but signing him would mean one of our current four central defenders would be on his way. Maybe Lynch who has struggled to fit in?

Forest bound.

Why wait until 1 July to announce it?

Wish forest fans would get a life and stop leaping on every rumour like they're going to sign everyone and their mums before the start of the season

He is still a Norwich player till July 1st so that might be the reason

Saves a months wages



12 Jun 2013 14:33:15
Kevin Blackwell and The Bury team are all currently on holiday in Dubai. Ryan Lowe has also joined them in Dubai as a 'golden handshake' before he re-signs for the shakers next week.

Hang on. All the Bury Team are on holiday together in Dubai?

Makes a change from a pre-season tour of the Isle of Man.



12 Jun 2013 14:25:54
Update for the Sags. I work in a hotel in Bristol and we have got John Joe O'toole staying with us tomorrow night so it looks like he could be about to sign for Bristol Rovers.

Thanks dude.

Ether that or he's signing for city.

^haha that would be horific

He couldn't get into colchesters side when they were fighting for survival. sorry but he'll sign for rovers!

They're are other reasons he didn't get into the Colchester squad the big reason is that he was injured for a long time! I'd rater everyone think he's crap because us gasheads know that when he came down here and did a massive favour in helping keeping us up I hope he comes back and helps us to promotion UTG

I expect Walsall and Orient are in for him but I think Rovers could easily compete with those teams financial.



12 Jun 2013 13:40:48
Bristol Rovers looking to strengthen their midfield, with Alan Gow and Ryan Harley targets if J-J O'Toole doesn't sign.

JJ will sign.

16 Jun 2013 19:16:45
hopefully he's class



12 Jun 2013 13:29:43
Kris Boyd is in talks with sheffield united

Do you think he would be willing to drop into league one. But stranger things have happened

Awful signing. players in league one need to put in a good shift twice a week.
He'll be injured or unfit for the majority of the season.

12 Jun 2013 23:18:02
Kris Boyd want stay Kilmarnock for children in school there. no chance Boyd back England again



12 Jun 2013 14:10:12
There is going to be some big news coming from Bristol rovers this week!

John Joe O'Toole is signing that will be the only news to come from BRFC! Apart from the stadium being finally signed off!

Players or staff?



12 Jun 2013 14:03:41
Tony Mowbray has announced that he will be expecting new signings within the next few weeks, with definites including Albert adomah and javier acuna

12 Jun 2013 13:50:01
out of contract Wycombe captain Dave Winfield has signed a 2 year deal with the shrews

Yes he has officially signed now. But again, Graham Turner last couple of seasons buying League 2 players! He is aiming for promotion this year!



12 Jun 2013 13:55:12
Cody McDonald has been seen around Priestfield Stadium today which looks like finalising his deal from Coventry very soon.

So not true.

12 Jun 2013 18:55:14
also seen in colchester, orient and rotherham town centers.

This is true, as I saw him myself!



12 Jun 2013 13:44:56
Dean whitehead is set to sign for middlesbrough

I hope not another defensive midfielder. we need creativity and goals.

He will be a very good signing for boro. Technically very good and can get himself a goal

Good move for both I think

Would be a decent partner in centre mid for Leadbitter if it happens

He will be a good signing, along side his old team mate leadbitter

Rather have dorrans with a bit creativity and he has been told he can leave

Creativity and goals will come from maghoma Adomah and Ebanks blake

Titus Bramble and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake set to sign also

He would be a great partner for Leadbitter in CM. Good signing! UTB

Whitehead and leadbitter in the center would be great for us. dorans too would be good.

13 Jun 2013 15:08:11
Middlesbrough Have Reported To Be Interested In A List Of Players. 1. Javi Acuna 2. Danny Graham 3. Dean Whitehead 4. Jozsef Varga 5. Samba Sow 6. Jacques Maghoma 7. Josh King 8. Josh Rees 9. Sylvain Ebanks-Blake 10. Michael Thwaite

There's more chance of me signing than Titus bramble, it's all complete speculation

Can't go wrong with dean whitehead

Whitehead imo would be a very poor signing. he has done nothing at any club he has been at. he will not create us chances and will not score goals from midfield. robson was the last player to score goals from midfield and we never replaced him. why not get dorrans who has been allowed to leave to play along side leadbitter. and as for danny graham he can sit and rot at sunderland as he turned us down in january and we don't want players that see us as secong best. BAZ

We've got leadbitter he doesn't create anything, doesn't score goals if fact doesn't do much to affect the game so we don't need another player like him



12 Jun 2013 13:13:17
Newcastle agree deal to sign Douglas

Kirk or Michael?

13 Jun 2013 09:20:33
. must be Kirk, Michael's going to QPR



12 Jun 2013 13:12:22
Obika set to sign for Charlton next week and will be unveiled in the new Home kit

Hope this is true!

Sounding like we are really close to 3 or 4 signings, good progress

Gary Madine will sign for Bradford from Sheffield Wednesday this week. Pack from Cheltenham and Colhessy from Southend may also sign.

Bring on Madine, he'd do well for us

Madine won't go to Bradford.
No chance

Wish I had a pint of what this bloke has had - just dreaming

I think you mean clohessy :-)

Colhessy? Why would we want him when we have Darby at RB and McArdle as a back up? Next.

Pack is on his way to the Championship.

Its clohessy!!

14 Jun 2013 12:13:05
Let em have Colhessy and we will keep Clohessy at the Sarfend!



12 Jun 2013 12:56:35
Ricky Holmes set to sign for Pompey this week

Good signing

Rotherham have placed bids for Charlton winger Danny Green and Crystal Palace forward Jason Banton.

12 Jun 2013 16:51:03
Isn't Danny Green out of contract?

Jason banton! yeah ok no chance.

Jason banton! yeah ok no chance.

Danny green has a year left on his contract, danny Haynes contact has not been renewed. green is a championship player.

Maybe banton on loan to blackpool. if palace can get ince or Phillips.

Green is not a Championship player, he's a one trick pony who can't help but get booked. Is he really going to feature much for us this coming season? He hasn't in the last couple!



12 Jun 2013 12:41:48
Huddersfield Town to make a 7 figure bid for unwanted Peterborough United Stiker Tyrone Barrnett

12 Jun 2013 16:12:29
Hope so.

And where are we getting the money for that then?

If he's so "unwanted" by them, then why on earth would Town bid over a million for him?!

Only Posh strikers worth anything are Gayle and Tomlin and doubt either will be made available

Would be a great signing but can't see it happening

Why would we pay more than 1 mil for an unwanted league 1 player

£10,000. 01p? That's all he's worth

Hope this is true. I'll drive him there myself.

Have we gone back in time to April 1st again

I'll give him a piggy back up t'north

Id start to like Huddersfield if that happened

Two way street Barnett doesn't want to play for Posh and they don't want him, hardly scores any goals so at best he is a free transfer. Maybe Posh will at to secure a move for him but he ain't destined for Huddersfield.

I'd snap their hands off of anyone of they want to bid a million for him

Please be true, would be the best deal Barry's ever negotiated!

Brilliant bit of business if it happens. Hopefully it will happen. And Fry def deserves the freedom of peterborough if he can get a million for a donkey like Barnett

12 Jun 2013 23:21:24
total tosh,

Barrnett didn't score many goals for Posh because he doesn't suit our style of football and never really played and to be fair it would be hard for a lot of strikers to push Gayle and Tomlin out, would be a good signing for Huddersfield as they have lost all their loan players and he would be good for them with the style of football they play

Barnett is useless lol and that's why he didn't play much, simple as that. not because gayle is to good? barnett was ther before gayle and couldn't get in the team, just a load of rubbish he is

Worse than Novak, why would we be interested.

Worse than Novak, crikey he must be bad.

But is he as bad as spencer?

Barnett would probably shine in a team that plays hoof ball but won't for a team that likes to pass the ball from the back.



12 Jun 2013 12:39:54
Jon joe otoole to sign this week fact!

Sign for who? Bristol Rovers?

Give us a clue! WHO FOR?



12 Jun 2013 12:28:03
West brom to sign free agent carlton cole

I hope this is a wind up, he is no better than M. A. Fortune who has been released, If this is the extent of the club, s and chairman Jeremy Peace, s ambition then its back to struggling at the wrong end of the table instead of building on the good work of last season

The trend is to go forward. Cole would be a backward step. Too journeyman and ordinary now.

When the rumour was on here about bony the other day I mentioned about cole and now its been confirmed I got the p took out of me i'd sign di santo, baird, simpson and bently good players on a free.

That's not true. West Brom have no interest in signing him. His likely destination is to Celtic.

12 Jun 2013 20:13:24
Please don't sign him or the clubs transfer policy is badly wrong



12 Jun 2013 12:19:01
Millwall enquire about released Noel Hunt, although looks destined for Leeds.

Surely they would just open talks with him?

Brighton might get him

You won't know for sure if you don't ask?! If TRUE?

Brighton won't get him because you don't have a manager yet!

Millwall should sign ebans blake from Wolves quality striker to hold up the play and score goals just what Millwall need. now wolves are in league 1 I think Blake is too good for league 1



12 Jun 2013 12:15:18

Didnt they bin him off a few years ago?



12 Jun 2013 11:59:00
Have been told WBA are very interested in Rodwell on loan, however the stumbling block at the moment is the fact WBA would like a view to be made permanent in the contract. WBA have offered to pay 100% wages while on loan and propose that a future fee is around 4 million. Man city would just prefer to loan and asses the situation at the end of the season, much like Chelsea and Lukaku last season.

This move will not happen. West Brom have a well balanced CM partnership of Mulumbu and Yacob. The only way they would incorparate Rodwell is if they played 4-3-3. If that was the case they would prefer someone that played for like Yaya Toure. Obviously not him though, just similar to him. If Rodwell was to leave on loan, the club with the option of signing him first is Everton.

Could happen, rodwell would start as cover or could play in the 4231 formation, also with injuries suspensions and even mulumbu going to the African cup of nations rodwell could even fit into the 442 in a fair few occasions



12 Jun 2013 11:54:52
Free agent Dean Whitehead is a target for Ipswich.

Hope this is not true he is average at best

I heard his name mentioned a few weeks back as Mick is apparently keen to bring in a number of players with EPL experience and a bit of grit. Would be a great signing.

He's going to boro, prefers the north east

Looks like every free agent and their dogs are going to 'Boro'

Would not be a great signing boro welcome to him

31 years old. on a free. over 500 games in the EPL. decent set piece taker. flexible in positions. any Championship side should be snapping him up. especially town.



12 Jun 2013 11:53:45
Leicester will move for released Fulham 'keeper Mark Schwazer if Hull complete a deal for Kasper Schmeichel



12 Jun 2013 11:50:50
Young Southampton midfielder Ward-Prowse is in discussions with Bolton and Burnley over a potential season-long loan.

I doubt it, he's very likely to be a part of our first team plans this season given how good he is. He may knock Cork or Schneiderlin out for some games and is good cover to come off the bench too. I see him playing far more often this season. Possibly even getting some games out on the wings.

Could be good, has lots of potential. May fall into the lightweight category for championship loans

Still not forgiven the Saints for sending us Danny Butterfield.

No the three clubs interested are QPR, Reading and Bournemouth, he's my neighbour.

Yeah, cause he would tell you when he is at the youth world cup.

does he give you a call every evening?

I apologise on behalf of Cortese for sending you Danny Butterfield



12 Jun 2013 11:46:21

paddy madden of yeovil is one of blackpools targets and it is understood that talks have already begun between the two clubs.

As he is under sontract he would require a fee. Unless he has a very low release clause, that's Blackpool ruled out.

So true

Agreeing fees has never really been a problem for KO it's when it comes to discussing wages that he falls down 9 Times out of 10

aston villa have made an improved offer for nordsjallend defender jores okore

The bid has been accepted and he is due in Birmingham within the next couple of days for a medical before being paraded at the kit launch on Sunday.

I hear its £4m & its been accepted - Okore now travels to Birmingham for a medical.

Does anyone actually know what is happening with Okore?
Is he joining or isn't he?

Yes this is true apparently they accepted and he's on his ay for his medical

It seems that Everton are trying to hijack the deal.
I wonder who he will choose between them and us.
An interesting dilemma for him.

He is now in Birmingham discussing the final touches to joining Villa.
I think he has decided Villa over Everton mate!

He signed for villa along with bacuna

Having now signed three players does anyone know how much they have cost us in total fees?
Obviously Mr Lerner has given the manager a fairly decent budget to spend but I wonder how much.
The Danish striker will presumably still be coming for around 2 million. Are there any more in the pipeline I wonder.

Read somewhere that Tonev, Bacuna, Okore and if we sign Helenius it will be around £9 million for all 4. Not bad.

I think he has added depth now & Helenius will be the last incoming until Villa sell off some more players. i. e Given, Ireland, Bent. Then that money will be used to further improve the squad.



12 Jun 2013 10:44:18
tongo doumbia at wolves wants a way out. blackpool bolton and bournmouth interested in signing the devebsive midfielder.

Not disappointed by this, started off looking really good, signed a contract and then went completely to pot. Disappeared for long periods in games. Reminded me of Olifinjana on that front.

12 Jun 2013 17:43:59
He looks like a big strong decent midfielder but that's as far as it goes

Is this to help with his recovery?

Why would it be on loan? wigan need him and if he went it would be a sale of around 6 million.

Why loan? Should do a swap deal for him. someone like gauye would be a good deal in my opinion

No permenant

Hull have moved ahead of Norwich in the race for Celtic striker Gary Hooper after submitting a bid in excess of £4 million

Is laughable that celtic were turning down £8m offers for him last season, and now an offer of £4m is considered acceptable. Silly season and a half. Especially after the season that celtic have just had.

Would prefer hooper to this swedish guy. but 33 caps for sweden can't be bad.

Hardly ahead in the race. Shown hand first maybe. Pretty confident that if we still want him we can beat Hull to his signature.

Lol, 4m ain't gunna cut it, they'll want at least 6

Im not sure that Norwich are in for him anymore, Norwich have RVW, Holt, Bechio and have had bid accepted for Toivonen.

12 Jun 2013 14:29:44
4 million, oh come on Celtic have turn down bids of 7 million +

12 Jun 2013 14:36:41
lol norwich offered almost 9 million for him and still they did not accepted they will never accept 4 million for hopper more like the 8 to 10 million

For 4m hull can have him. but in the end, I can see hooper finishing out his year rather than going to hull

Not laughable at all - he is now moving into the last year of his contract so all the rules change regarding the fee the club can command

I hope Hull do get Hooper.
Norwich can use the money we save to buy a quality striker instead. OTBC

He has one year left on his contract I think so maybe

12 Jun 2013 17:11:41
Norwich don't want him anymore

Hull obviously haven't done their homework.

Bid rejected

But he is in his last year in his contract that's why he will be cheaper

City have had a bid accepted of around 4.5 million

Homework? I'd hardly say they need to when the Hooper/Norwich story was so prominant last window.
If Hooper only has a year left on his current deal and is insistant on leaving for the Prem, Celtic will accept anywhere between £4m and £5m for him, whether that comes from Hull or Norwich.
If both clubs have offers accepted then its all down to contracts and location. Norwich might just win out over Hull in terms of location I think.

Hull City fan {Ed024's Note - Newcastle and Sunderland may well come calling also.}

13 Jun 2013 14:56:09
It has been pointed out many times people don't think Hooper will leave because he can Champs league football at Celtic and while that is true he will be on a weekly basis playing against teams like Inverness and Ross County or he could leave for a smaller club like Hull City and play the big teams like UTD ad City and Chelsea on a weekly basis and I think in the long run and of greater benefit to him he will move to Hull simply 'cos the quality of teams will be better

Forget 8m for Hooper expect 4-5m as he'll be on a free next year. Celtic were sticky in the last window largely for political reasons. Their board would have looked foolish, greedy and way out of line with what their fans wanted to have cashed in on Hooper in January in the middle their best Champions League runs in ages. The board couldn't find and sign a back up in time. Celtic were prepared to listen to a silly offer but by the time Norwich made one there was no time left to sign a replacement for Hooper. The deal was called off a few hours before the deadline for these reasons. Is he still a target? I don't know but now we have signed RVW we may need someone who will do some bench time and play in the cup competitions- Rhodes looks like a better fit for this but maybe if we are to sell Holt then Hughton might want stronger competition for his front man berth and so the signing of Hooper could still be on the cards. The fact that Holt submitted a transfer request last year may say to Hughton that Holt has lost his desire to play for City and if so the board may want to ship him off while he still has some transfer value. Last year we couldn't do this as we failed to sign a striker in the summer. Now it's different and this time Holt doesn't hold all the cards. Ultimately Holt is going to have to be replaced due to his age so pure economics might dictate that this could happen sooner rather than later. As Beccio has failed to impress and Vaughan looks like he will go we may need to sign two more besides RVW if Holt goes.

Newcastle are interested in £6 million Aston villa star Darren Bent source:various newspapers

Villa are apparently holding out for £8-9m with add-ons ontop.

He is going to Southampton

One paper today is quoted as saying that they are abandoning the chase for Bent as they don't want to pay a fee.
Hasn't he got 2 years left on his deal?
Surely they don't expect us to give him to them free.

We'll just sell him to Galatasaray who bid for him in January and were told to come again this summer.

I'm not sure that's true about Galatasaray. I thought it was the case that Villa did not recieve a bid for any of their players in January.

charlie hancock to sign a pro contract at barnsley it is estimated that he will be earning 1000 a week with bonuses

No way do we want Kay back he is Rubbish my two Grandaughters are better than him not conference class no way

This is never going to happen. Antony Kay will not be returning to Barnsley. FACT.

Why would we? Were trying to break our transfer record.
Already got poor strikers, were going for a good one now.

It will be nice to see Ross back in the Football League. Scored a shed load of goals for Matlock Town and couple of seasons ago and could certainly grab some goals for a league team

Hannah, not good enough for L1, that's why he's at grimsby, he a good player at that level,

Why would amybody sign ross hannah. 18 months in league two 3 Goals! Not good enough!

Swindon Manager Kevin MacDonald is interested in 3 young players he coached at Aston Villa, Centre Back Daniel Devine, Midfielder Daniel Johnson and Winger Joshua Barton, the club are also expected to complete a deal for Tottenham full back Nathan Byrne. They could pull out of the deal for Adam Rooney due to the 8k per week that was agreed under former manager Di Canio. Luke Rooney is expected to leave the club to Cheltenham, Paul Caddis also expected to leave, with a few Championship clubs interested. Paul Bensons future is undecided MacDonald wants to keep him, but the board want to free up his wages for younger replacement. Too many expensive signings, and players put on astronomical wages by the former manager have cost Swindon a realistic chance at promotion.

You can't blame Di Canio for much took us from leauge two to top of leauge one

You can blame him for wasting a whole lot of money of a lot of garbage players. Thanks to his overspending, we are now having to cut the wage bill in half.

PDC and the previous board are 100% to blame for the current financial problems at the CG.

Yeah I mean how dare they take us from leauge two to the top of leauge 1 come on use your brains

Is that the same owner that wrote off 10million instead of asking for it back, the same owner that bank rolled our league 2 title and signed some decent players, oh and the same owner that bankrolled 2 wembley trips in his time.

Blackstock to Huddersfield for £750,000 within a week. watch this space

Its already stated in the papers that this is going to be an unlikely deal.

No chance. Town will be targeting someone that fits their recruitment policy (low wage and low transfer fee or, as the club puts it, young and ambitious)

Just signed a 4 year deal it'll cost more than that.

12 Jun 2013 20:28:40
Robins said he doubts whether huddersfield could afford to pay the fee to end his four year contract but at 750k we should snap him up he would get us 15 league goals easily if up top with vaughn personally I would like to see simeon jackson come on a free transfer just pay his high wages rather than get loans in because if they turn out to di the business like vaughn then you risk losin out or payin more in fees
If we could get these 3 then we should be a top 10 team plus think clayton scannell hunt and smithies ( hopefully norwood and gobern aswell) are only gna get better year on year
True terrier

Stop with the constant "young and ambitious players only signing" statement. If the right player is available, we will sign him

There is a long list of players that have been available that we have missed over the last few years because the deal could not be done. only for them to sign elsewhere, and to great success

Stoke west ham and benfica interested in signing wilfried bony

Andy carrool is going to sign for West Ham so rule them out

I wish stoke were

I wish stoke were

AMAZING if he came to stoke, but out of our price range I feel

Would be a good signing for Stoke as they need a goalscorer like Bony who could bang them in, so long as the service from the midfield improves, especially in the Wings. Etherington is getting on now, Pennant is a walking trouble maker, and Shotton is simply unacceptable.

I expect Shea to get game time, maybe Hoilett coupled with this signing, and we're golden if we then get a left back and right back.

Would be brilliant for Stoke but don't think it would happen. West Ham (shocker!) and Newcastle are apparently in for him too. At least at Stoke he'd be number 1 striker, at West Ham and 'Castle he's have to contend with Carroll and Cisse respectively.

/ VERY much doubt west ham will sign both carrol AND bony, they are only in for bony if they can't get carroll

West ham are close to agreeing a deal with Andy Carroll. Fee agreed is £15m and £78,000 a week which of course was offset by Carlton Cole leaving as he was earning £50,000 a week. Not bad business at all, now we need 2 supporting strikers. Nicolas Bendtner, Milouda are a couple that come to mind and free agents

Should have been Bony

No such thing as a "free transfer". Agents fee's and wages will cost more



12 Jun 2013 09:44:48
Walsall are looking resigned to the fact they will be loosing last seasons top scorer and Northern Ireland international will grigg, after recieving a number of offers from championship clubs. Both Charlton and Brighton are thought to be in contention for his signature. Deal could be done as early as next week.

12 Jun 2013 13:43:42
Grigg holds all the cards here and Walsall have no say in where he goes as he is out of contract. The club will, of course, be due compensation but should the player's preferred new club be unable to reach agreement with Walsall then he can sign for them anyway and the fee will be decided by whatever the system is that has replaced the FL tribunal system. EPPP?

Oh great. Brighton's going to sign another League One that will spend his first season sitting on the bench and then on loan in the second season, followed by being released.

He's not good enough for the Championship yet.

Hes not good enough for league 1 yet, just got lucky 2nd half of last season and had quality players feeding him.

15 Jun 2013 15:02:53
No posts on the Brighton roumour site since 12th Jume, must be lots of rumours

Dean Windass is being linked with a coaching job at YTFC

Millwall's Liam trotter is Southampton bound for 3 million.

12 Jun 2013 11:48:04
Hope so could bring in better with 3m

Good I really hope so! Surely SL can find better midfielders than him! I'm surprised about the £3M though seems a lot if TRUE?

I'll gladly drive him there myself for £3M! Are you sure £3M? It is only a RUMOUR!

No he is not. We are looking for better quality than that, and this rumour was from last season.

I do hope so

Millwall won't let him leave for less than 4 million.

12 Jun 2013 15:31:31
Can't see millwall selling to Southampton after what they did to us with Jason puncheon a few years ago. Although I'd snap there hands off for £3million

Trotter isn't worth that

Take him, most overrated player by media in our squad

I'll pay for he's cab then

Thank you very much, Saints, we'll take that.

Let this happen lord! Let this happen!

Please sell him good money good player but played bad season I would like to see 3 mill in are pocket

12 Jun 2013 19:10:29
hope he goes for this because he had a bad season and I think 3 mill for him is good and to go to Southampton is very good also get rid of n'guessan

Pretty sure we don't want him. I'd stake my whole life savings on us not signing him, which is a considerable amount.

I heard danny fox is moving to millwall myself. That's more likely to happen.

3 million is a good price for trotter on his day he's one of best mid fielders on the league, i'd rather have billy sharpe plus 1.5 million for trotter

One bad season, but Trotter has a bit of class. I would rather Abdou went somewhere, he can't pass the ball 10 yards to a Millwall player, but runs around like a headless chicken



12 Jun 2013 09:26:30
Balde to be confirmed as a Celtic Player in the next 24 hrs.



12 Jun 2013 08:33:22
Darren ( Bent) had a medical at Fulham on fri he then returned yesterday for advanced talks at Motspur Park.
Newcastle are interested in Darren but he wants to move back to London with Fulham only a few miles from Tooting where Darren was born & still regularly visits.

This has been done in true Fulham under the radar fashion.
West ham were also interested but have turned their attention towards getting the Carroll & Ambrosini deals over the line.

Hardly under the radar when you know about it!

12 Jun 2013 11:58:48
bent will never sign for fulham

12 Jun 2013 12:38:30
i do doubt this very much as darren bent was on the same plane as I was on friday from birmingham international airport to ireland can't see your story being true sorry although I wouldn't be suprised if he ended up at fulham just don't know why you have to lie about him already having medicals and what not.

Fulham physio confirmed it m8, Ireland's only an hour from London & medical can be anywhere, pogrebnyak had his in France b4 signing for Fulham



12 Jun 2013 08:18:33
Jamie Cureton will sign for Cheltenham Town on Thrusday 13th June when he returns from his holiday in Europe, dispelling any rumours that he might remain at Exeter City. Paul Tisdale had told local media that he is sorry not to keep the veteran striker, whilst Cheltenham Town sources have confirmed that Cureton's signing is imminent.

Sure that Tidsdale already told Cureton that he didn't feature in his plans as first choice striker.

12 Jun 2013 12:20:51
That is not true exeter cannot compete with cheltenham for wages and cureton was grecians top earner.

13 Jun 2013 00:19:48
Tisdale wanted to keep him, however cannot afford him.

Will sign on the 13th ey. so where is he then?

Cant compete with wages? considering its based on turnover not sure Cheltenham can compete with anyone. Must be that rich sugar daddy chairman you've got



12 Jun 2013 08:14:15
Javier acuna from Real Madrid set to be middlesbrough manager tony mowbrays first summer signing, he is to follow this up with the free signing of Titus bramble once the player returns from holiday

I hope Bramble is a joke!

Mogga would be better off coming out of retirement and playing himself rather than signing Titus Bramble

12 Jun 2013 12:00:45
If Acuna comes to England it will be with Palace

Just read this story myself. Hope he ties it up quickly. Worried about the amount of injuries he's had though

Lets hope its true about acuna but bramble is useless. he always seems to get sent off, score an own goal or give a penalty away. he's been consistent at all three since playing for newcastle.

We won't sign bramble his wage will be too high

Acuna has been reported a lot, he's a wide attacker and bags the goals, but has a lot of injuries.

This would be a superb signing, but Bramble no chance he's worse than what we already have. Why don't we get Matty Upson seen as he's on a free.

Mowbray personally stated in an interview to the local paper that he had NEVER HEARD of Acuna. Bramble - hope not.

He'd be better than some of the defenders boro have had this season.

I'am sure Mogga said he'd never even heard of Acuna never mind seen him play?

Your both persons for thinking mowbrays word is the truth, he probably has heard of him he tried acting like we wernt in for jonjo shelvey when in fact we were. wise up a bit please

Even if Mowbray hadn't heard of him at the time he said it (April), his scouts will have undoubtably told him about acuana

Maybe but Boro seem to be looking at eastern European players with lower wages and price tags, either way its going to be a very interesting summer and if we get half the targets talked about could be a very good season.



12 Jun 2013 08:12:36
David Moyes will offer £18 million plus Alex Buttner in an attempt to sign Leighton Baines from Everton and will test Southamptons reslove by offering £9 million for James Ward-Prowse

If Ward-Prowse wants more game time like he said yesterday he definitely won't be increasing his chances going to Man U

JWP is unhappy about warming the bench at Saints - think about it.

Why would united want prowsey?

12 Jun 2013 13:19:52
United will just Loan him out for the next season.

Rubbish! JWP has signed a new contract this season. says its the best place for his development

Think about this, Mr Mafiosa. JWP just signed a 5 year deal this season and he has actually said that he wants to play in Saints first team more. However, if you check out his interview, he is certainly not a disgruntled player

14 Jun 2013 12:20:24
JWP has recently said he wants extra game time, therefore I highly doubt he will get ANY at manchester united.

With the 5 year contract JWP would be AT LEAST 15 mil. his potential is massive



12 Jun 2013 08:08:41
Notts County updates

deals agreed with 4 players
Calvin Zola
Adam Rooney
Ben Gordon
Mustapha Dumbuya
these should be announced in the next 10 days.

They will now follow up on midfielders, John Bostock, Isaac Osbourne and Adam Reed, as well as wingers Giles Barnes and Elliot Grandin and Scott Wagstaff.
Obviously not all those six will sign, but they are targets.
Notts are chasing a big name striker, which will catch a few headlines if it comes off.

Showunmi will go to Thailand, and Zoko will be allowed to leave, along with Bishop, who already has a deal done elsewhere. Labadie will sign a new deal in the next week also.
Arquin will be leaving with an offer from Preston appearing most likely.

Also being announced will be a bunch of high profile friendlies against foreign teams at Meadow Lane, as well as a short overseas tour.

Would love this all to be true. Can't see it though. Good start with the Finland trip being announced

Arquin was offered to the club but classed as "nowhere near good enough" by Grayson.

Giles Barnes never play in mls

That is absolutely quality if it happens, well done Kiwomya

The tour has been confirmed.
Now I just hope the rest is true. (except zoko and arquin as I think they could be useful for us if they play well)

Think you're under a bit of an illusion here, no chance, these players are too good for us, and a big name striker? We've got no money, and could think of strengthening other positions, not just bringing in strikers

Can notts county afford to pay 8k a week in wages for Rooney then? That's what he was on at Swindon and currently wants now, loads of money for a very average player, actually he couldn't get in the side most of the time. Highly over rated.

Do you know something i'm sick of hearing notts have no money we've overspent for the last 2 season and now because were not throwing money around people say were broke no what we are is a club that from now on going to spend our money wisely

Absolute nonsense. The trip was announced by the Finnish side weeks ago that's how this person knows this.

The rest of it is just carbage.

If ONE of them deals pulls of it's coinsidental.

Arquin is good enough for the prem on his day, but unfortunatley them days don't come around very often.

That lad has so much potential just a shame he's a typical French arrogant clown who thinks he's already made it.

Enoch has shown up in thialand as has jcr. Really hope all of the above is true



12 Jun 2013 07:56:41
No way this will happen, he has clearly stated a few years ago that he hates Motherwell, but Motherwell are set to sign Iain Vigurs, David Clarkson, Gunnar Nielsen, Christophe Berra and Gregg Wylde by the end of next week.

They let players go because they can't afford them then bring better players in I don't thinkso pal



12 Jun 2013 07:51:55
Sunderland have their 4th signing with midfielder El Hadji Ba. BLACKCAT



12 Jun 2013 07:43:00
York City offer contract to 26 year old striker Rene Howe

Looks a good and promising player
hope he joins us
if he joins, if he's upfront with either Boweman or Jarvis
i think we will be scoring more goals than we did last season



12 Jun 2013 07:34:52
Craig noone will be sold tomillwall from Cardiff, because the bluebird don't think he is prem quality.

No chance

Absolutely no chance. I'm a millwall fan and this will not happen! Even if he leaves Cardiff it will be to a big championship club

Im a city fan he's prem quality and if a fan can recognise it then the coaches and managers will to

Haven't seen much of Craig Noone, is he any good?

Hope it's true, he's always impressed when I've seen him play!

Would be good signing but unsure if true. ED any idea how much Lomas has got to spend? {Ed003's Note - not got a scooby}

Noone won't leave he want premier league games

The transfer kitty at Millwall exceeds £1.5m (excluding what is raised by summer sales).

Absolute rubbish, noone has been brilliant this season and will only get better.



12 Jun 2013 07:32:48
Alan Knill has offered Charlie Barnett and Simon Heslop the opportunity to join Torquay United in pre-season training.

This would certainly tie in with his desire to freshen up the gulls midfield as these players are known to be good passers of the ball, which would fit in with the style that Knill is keen to play.

Heslop has signed for Stevenage

12 Jun 2013 11:49:59
From a Scunthorpe fan knill doesn't play a passing game he plays 10 men behind the ball hoping for a long ball counter attack

I can confirm the rumour that Knill prefers a passing game is bogus.

Wello he certainly had torquay playing some decent stuff when he came in at the end of season and didn't play the long ball then.



12 Jun 2013 01:52:27
Lee Johnson will attempt to sign Bobby Reid on loan for a season but Bristol City want to keep him.

I have heard SOD say Bobby Ried will be used more this year, so if he is going out on loan I would expect it to be a month at a time.



12 Jun 2013 01:31:36
Luke foster to come back to Oxford. He has been shown round the club and is expected to replace Michael Raynes at centre back, with Michael replacing Worley on the bench.

Definately not. Raynes had a decent season, especially towards the end and maybe playing with Jake Wright helped him a lot. Why would we now put him on the bench/ squad player and bring back Foster, who left on no so good terms. Nop, this is a non runner

Shown around? has it changed that much from when he was here before. one of the more surprising observations this one!

If he's coming back to the club why is he being shown around?

Bloody hope not

Didn't leave on good terms with the manager, other players and staff at the club.
He will never play for OUFC again whilst Chris Wilder is manager.
Not good enough for a top end league 2 club either



12 Jun 2013 01:08:05
latest Bristol city news is aden flint has signed from Swindon for 300k.

other news is that sam baldock and steve davies are close to securing moves away from ashton gate. Baldock is going to Charlton for 900k and davies is going back to derby for 750k.

SO'D will turn his attention on getting 2 replacements. these are likely to be
-Leroy lita-loan till jan, with a possible permanent switch if the loan goes well and city are challenging for promotion.
-Zac Ansah will sign permanently for a fee around 500k.

It is also true that Adriano Basso has been offered a trial. the idea is to have him as a goalkeeper coach and reserve goalkeeper.

this is what my son in law told me who is on the board at Bristol city.

12 Jun 2013 08:33:29
"Baldock is going to Charlton for 900k"

I'm not sure Charlton have £900K to spend on one player, especially as the player in question did so well last year!

Why would Derby County want Steve Davis now we have Johnny Russel?

Why would Davies return to Derby? He left us for family reasons he's not going to come back now especially after we signed Russell

12 Jun 2013 09:13:57
Davies isn't coming back to Derby

Davies is not going back to derby we have enough strikers and he left for a reason so we don't want him back

Basso won't be reserve keeper! SO'D said that the 2nd choice keeper will also play for the under 21's, and that he wants to strong keepers! Basso is 38 now, I think he's probably past it! I would prefer Camp or Moore (although both unlikely). Davies won't return to Derby as he left for family reasons a year ago, he won't return one year on. If Zac Ansah was to sign for us, it would be for free, we certainly wouldn't pay 500k for him!

900K you must be on speed.
He couldn't hit a barn door last year.

If I were your son in law I would be very unhappy about your lack of confidentiality!

Ansah would be a quality signing not to fussed if we loose baldock but would be gutted to loose davis

Didn't Davis also tweet about Clough being no good at tactics when he joined Bristol City or along similar lines?



12 Jun 2013 01:06:44
Burtons Calvin Zola is not likely to stay according to manager (source tv Sport Website) would like to see him at town, the move would make sense - JS



12 Jun 2013 00:46:51
George Elokobi and berra to Huddersfield

Elokobi hasn't played for almost a year after a bad injury and is under contract for another year at Wolves. Hudddersfield don't need another left back and even if they did can't see them paying a fee for a player yet to prove he has recovered from injury. Berra would be a decent addition and is out of contract but may still have crazy wages in mind even though he is no longer a premier player.

These guys any good!

Berra would be a rubbish addition, he is a shocking defender, all he does is back off and back off, let him skint some other club rather than town.



12 Jun 2013 00:13:55
Norwich City are looking to pip Fulham to the signature of Wolves winger Bakary Sako and will match their £4m asking price for the player.

Any good?

We know Fulham have been interested for a while so they have to be the likely destination. From a footballing sense though I can see Norwich's style of football suiting Sako better. One thing we can be sure of though is that he won't be a Wolves player come September!

I watched Sako all last season at wolves he is a good player going forward but will often leave the full back exposed, leaving huge gaps. I think he would be much better playing up front than on the wing. 4 is probly the right price for him

Him bent and Pieters going Fulham, you're signing Toivonen and Forrestieri

Wolves fan here sako is quality and what ever team he goes to he will attract Big teams in coming season. good luck sako

14 Jun 2013 04:39:03
Sako is decent for 5 minutes then goes missing for 85 minutes and if your loosing don't expect him to track back you'll find him standing on half way line knackered.

So he is like Huckerby was then, never tracked back. I'll take another Huckerby.
