12 May 2013 22:26:25
Norwich City preparing to bid �6.5m on KRC Genk striker Jelle Vossen. The 25yr old Belgian international has netted 25 times in 50 appearances this season.

He's too similar to what we already have, we need someone with some pace.

I'd suggest Carlos Bacca.



12 May 2013 22:23:40
Adam Le Fondre to sign for nottingham forest soon as the transfer window opens fee already agreed today reported to be around 2m.

Nottingham Forest also interested in gareth mccleary after his move from forest to reading last season for free. the fee around 1m

Haha we won't sign either.

Le Fondre will only leave us for the premier league, and for no less than £5m. We won't sell McCleary he's been one of our better players this season

I agree, bet we won't sign either of them

well after a rubbish day at work I'm certainly cheered up. That's the biggest made up rumour since Reading were linked with messi



12 May 2013 21:25:37
Wrexham are after Barrow striker Adan Boyes.

Boyes is out of contract with the Bluebirds, but has been offered a new contract, so suitible compensation must be agreed.

Source: A work colleague lives next door to Barrow manager Dave Bayliss in Halewood, Liverpool.



12 May 2013 21:06:30
Huddersfield Town to sign:
Frankie Fielding (Derby County)
Lee Tomlin (Peterborough United)
Lewin Nyatanga (Bristol City)
Tom Hateley (Motherwell)
Paddy McCourt (Celtic)
Simeon Jackson (Norwich)
James Vaughan (Norwich)

Hope about last 2 and 3rd one

James Vaughan is Derby bound!

If you got Jackson and Vaughan you would be doing great
Jackson is quality and would easily get ye 20 - 30 goals
Vaughan 10-15 if injury free .
If ye had both playing for ye week in week out, I would back ye for promotion

I think vaughan is good for more goals than that if injury free, he got us 14 with an injury and a couple of silly suspensions, keep injury free and cut down on the silly yellows he more like 15 to 20

Tomlins going to stay with us



12 May 2013 20:43:00
Phil Neville to sign for Burnley as player coach.

Nahki Wells transfer to turf moor to be finalised after Bradfords play off final game.

Not the most unrealiatic rumour I've ever read but i'd possibly say. unlikely

Keith treacy to swfc nailed on

I can see Phil heading back to Manchester United as part of Moyes back room staff.

Treacy to sign for SWFC on a free

deal was done a few weeks back but Burnley have not officially released him yet

Lets see if you can get him running as he needs to lose is beer belly



12 May 2013 20:40:18
Martin Jol off to Everton



12 May 2013 20:33:06
Now that Norwich City have confirmed their premier league status, they are going to go back in for Gary Hooper. 4-5 mil is believed to be enough, and he is open to a move to the premier league.

He is too good for Norwich

12 May 2013 21:44:53
who do you think he would go to then? He'll be at Norwich next season.

No he won't! Get real.

He is not good enough for the Prem

13 May 2013 07:16:58
Watched him at Scunthorpe quality player with bags of talent will end up at a bigger club then Norwich

Why would we want Hooper? yes he has scored loads of goals in the SPL. but its the SPL! he had his chance to join us but I think there will be some hard work at Carrow Road searching for some decent strikers who can make it in the premiership. saying that, he would be a good back up and can replace Jackson. be a decent impact player like Le Fondre was for Reading!

Nowhere near worth the price quoted. Celtic think very highly of themselves indeed. Stay clear of this one!

Agree with the stay clear. celtic will still want 5m for him even though he has a year on his contract.

and if a 'bigger club' were going to go for him, they would of done by now. I think Celtic fans seem to just rate him too highly.



12 May 2013 20:32:17
Swansea City have made Watford Striker Troy Deeney their main transfer target for the summer.

Lol, no they haven't they have much better to chose from lol

^ Don't kid yourself, Deeney is staying with Watford and we are not selling. Good enough for a team like Swansea easily.

Yes they have

Would be a good transfer but Watford wouldn't let him go. The guy above clearly doesn't watch Watford play.

I seriously doubt the Swans are going after him.

13 May 2013 10:58:24
I would have believed this it was Cardiff and Malky but not The Swans.

Deeney has had an exception season but it's not finished yet.

Swansea are an excellent team with a great manager, so how I think that they will be looking a little further that Watford for players.

No they haven't

Not this time, 2 years have passed by since Swansea bought Danny Graham from Watford, this time around I think thy will go continental

Still owes the watford fans after going to prison

And deeney is better than shecter and graham

To the person above - Deeneys paid us back with that goal! Amazing scenes at the Vic!

He had repaid us by playing a huge part in our push for promotion, scoring 20 goals including the one to get us to Wembley (what a game to be at). He has become a threat upfront and does his job of holding up the ball and finding those killer passes



12 May 2013 20:32:22
Lee Johnson hopeful louis Carey links up with him at oldham as player coach

I think you got the carey lewis carey gk has been release a louis carey has been offered a new contract



12 May 2013 20:28:07
hull city targets

c davies

Zamora won't go to hull he likes Brighton



12 May 2013 20:27:01
Burnley, Blackpool and Bolton have all inquired about a season long loan for Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell

Nick powell is off to boro utd impressed with our training facilities and the way we try to play football

15 May 2013 03:04:52
nick powell going to aston villa, much to good for a championship side. lambert is building for the future with a team of talented youngsters. they will probably need a new forward as well step forward max clayton.

How can you say he is too good for the championship? he jumped from league 2 to the prem and has not proved himself. I know he didn't get much of a chance, but he will probably go out on loan to the championship first.



12 May 2013 20:12:24
Notts County manager Chris Kiwomya is set to do business in the summer after having a meeting with chairman Ray Trew and wants to add four players to his squad.
His first signing is set to be 29 year old defender Shaun Cooper. Cooper is interested a number of League 1 and League 2 sides after his release from Crawley but Kiwomya feels the former Bournemouth and Portsmouth player will add much needed defensive cover to his County side.
County have had French defender Yoann Zanoni training with the club the week before the season started. The Alfortville defender impressed and is a free agent also.
Kiwomya is wanting to sign a attack minded midfielder and a forward
The forward is the experienced Chris Iwelumo. Iwelumo is set to be come a free agent from Watford in the summer and has previous experience in League 1, most notably Colchester United in a superb goalscoring run. The 34 year old was on loan at Meadow Lane in November.
Kiwomya has been told he won't have money to spend but has a big wage budget and is expected to sign former Leyton Orient and QPR player Jimmy Smith. Smith was surprisingly released by Orient and is wanting to stay in League 1 and feels County is the place to go to.

It was no supprised smith was released if you ever saw him play. For 10 mins of the 90 he was wonderful, for the remaining 80 he would not touch the ball. Not committed enough on the pitch to be a league one player. He has ability but not the effort levels.

Unless the defenders are full backs then very unlikely true

13 May 2013 07:38:01
Much needed defensive cover? Already 4 centre halves on the books. Must be full backs.
Iwelumo. ? After he was awful on loan last season. give over!
Signing 2 full backs, first choice midfielder to replace Hughes, 2 strikers and 2 wingers t be first team player. The rest of the comings and goings will make up the squad.

So far the team is

? Leacock Liddle?
? Labadie??

Iwelumo played or should I say ATTENDED for a few matches and was not worth looking at. Very unlikely.

13 May 2013 11:47:12
Perry kitchen traning with crawley from mls and looks to sign contract with them

No way that Kiwomya will sign Iwelumo for a number of reasons:
#1) we had him last season and he was awful.
#2) Kiwomya is set on building a squad of young/hungry players with a few experienced players to accompany them, however they have to show desire which Iwelumo certainly did not
#3) He is already in negotiations with a few players who seem very interested in the club and his philiosopy.
Nice try though

Come on notts sign someone exciting in an advanced midfield role or striker soon before as normal they are slowly snapped up

Hed be awesome up front with pitman with grabban just behind but if we sign wells or austin then I wouldn't buy him.



12 May 2013 20:06:27
Dale Jennings of Bayern Munich looks set to signed on loan for the 2013-2014 season by Colchester United. Bayern are keen for the ex-tranmere man, Jennings to get some first team football.

Jennings wasting his career in Munich

Why would he take a step down to league 2, when he has never played lower than league 1. Certainly if he moves, he will be going league 1, if not championship

Why would he not go back to tranmere as first option we've already stated we need attacking players

Colchester United are League 1.

13 May 2013 07:16:59
Doesnt matter where they are after what he has learnt just training with european champions would guarantee a championship side taking him on.
True terrier

Tranmere have first option on dale jennings

15 May 2013 06:25:33
unfortunately tranmere have the budget of a non league side so that's not going to happen

And colchester are flushed with money?! he's a local lad why would he want to live or play footy in essex besides tranmere have 1st loan option

Do you know what first option means? up to tranmere to say no thanks



12 May 2013 19:49:04
Russell Slade is covering his options on Orient's left hand side now Lee Cook has turned down the contract on offer by bringing in Andy Welsh from Carlisle who he worked with at Yeovil.

Other players being considered are veteran Julian Gray who is currently playing in Cyprus and Arsenal youngster Sanchez Watt.

I hope Andy Welsh gets a chance with a decent club. Seems a nice bloke and didn't really get a fair crack of the whip at Carlisle.
Think he would be a good signing.

I hope Welsh gets a team, seemed a bit lightweight when he played for CUFC.

Would be great signing for them never given a chance here but always performed we he played. Good luck Andy

I would love to see welsh at orient alas scores or sets goals up against us

Be careful of Sanchez watt he will get all the picture done in the shirts about to sign the contract and then decide not to

Welsh is a good player. Carlise fans thought madden was rubbish, and he's now the best striker in the league

Was not the carlisle fans that thought madden was rubbish, but abbot

Yeah I echo sentiments of everyone here welsh good player shown in the games he played this year stats show he played in 1 defeat at end of season! Gutted he's gone like madden and loy

Played in premier league and mls always scores against us as well

These people can't go to the matches if they think welsh was good for us, he was useless, loy deserved another chance, madden missed sitter after sitter when he did get a chance!

"These people can't go to the matches if they think welsh was good for us, he was useless, loy deserved another chance, madden missed sitter after sitter when he did get a chance!"
Also why play him instead of Robson who was faster, stronger, scored more goals per game, made more goal per game and helped out in defence more

Welsh was awful for us league 2 at best

Diasagree if welsh would have played as much as robson I think he would have done just as well if not better remember he came to us as one of the leagues top assist players, also like the other guy said played prem tha counts for something, some person fans on here

Clearly an russ fan, I travel home and away he played more games away than home and I can assure you against sheff utd, oldham and especially doncaster he was by far our best player bar noble on the pitch. Never given a chance

Me 9 year old boy was stronger, he was awful for us

Anyway, madden to score the winner for us at wembleeeeyyyy, up the glovers



12 May 2013 20:06:50
Oldham athletic set to sign bury midfielder david worrall. The midfielder wants to stay in the manchester area and has turned down an offer from rochdale to sign for the latics

Would be a good signing for us can play wing center mid and right back also he got mom against us when we beat them 1 0

Hope soo!

Personally I would go for experience in Andy Welsh on a free from carlisle ripped us apart at bp late in season

Will need to buy as still contracted for another year, bury need the cash unless the Neville deal gets done soon.

Can't see this happening as Bury want a six figure sum for him for compensation and can;t see LJ spending that much on a player that is not proven yet at league one level.

There will be other midfielders LJ will be looking at as well.

Oldham offered 45k yesterday and it was rebuked.



12 May 2013 19:34:18
Bristol City will sign both Chris Zebroski and Adam Virgo on 5-year deals.

13 May 2013 00:10:31
We would NOT offer ANY player a deal of that length and are looking at payers under 24.
I would assume you're either a saggie on a wind up or mixing BCFC with the shower of crap up the road!
Neither of those players are anywhere near good enough for City, r**ers maybe tho!

Nobody is going to get a five year deal a AG!



12 May 2013 19:16:56
Gillingham will show their intent by signing Simon Ferry on a three year deal this Summer, after his release by Swindon.

When do think this will happen? Martin Allen is on holiday and doesn't have a meeting with the chairman in Dubai until end of May to discuss next season's budget!

13 May 2013 00:12:17
going to Bristol City by all accounts. They have a budget which the Gills can't compete with.

Signing Simon ferry doesn't show intent as he is a good league one player but that's about it. Unless your intent is just to stay in league one? Lol

Bristol city have to cut there budget massively and could be in trouble if they don't shift some of the big wages they have, they will need to let go half the playing squad before the new season starts, don't forget league 1 had a cap on the amount you can spend on players wage.

Ferry is going back to scotland his girlfriend and young baby are already there

Ferry always goes back home for the summer, he sees his family then normally goes away with the lads for a week before his family holiday with his new child. ferry is a top top guy and will be missed.

Can gillingham afford to pay ferry £3500 a week then? Because that's what he was on!!



12 May 2013 19:16:30
If derby fail to sign Alex Baptiste they will try and sign Gary Monk from Swansea.

I hope not!

Monk won't sign for another team now, you're only hope is a brief loan deal. He wants to retire with us and hopes for a coaching role which I believe is already on the cards.

Considering he is better than all other defenders in that league it is hard to see why you wouldn't want him.



12 May 2013 19:13:51
Nahki Wells has turned down a move to Huddersfield and will Join Burnley for 750,000 after Bradfords promotion

Burnley are more than welcome to him. Enjoy your promotion, and lottery win and marriage to mila kunis etc.

Thats good news for town, wells is overrated

Wells is worth at least 1M in todays money

Wells is worth 1 million in monopoly money, vastly overrated. {Ed003's Note - I think he has great potential from what I've seen,just my opinion mind.}



12 May 2013 18:48:14
Chris Wood or Matej Vydra to go to West Brom.
Lukaku and Chalobah to Swansea however Chalobah may go to Brighton

Why would he go back to somewhere he's not wanted?

12 May 2013 21:16:22
Vydra and Chalobah will both be at Watford next season in the Prem.

13 May 2013 10:03:18
Watford aren't quite in the prem just yet. still got 1 out of 2 good teams standing in their way!

Vydra will join a bigger club, west brom won't wood back either

Lukaku to swansea lol who makes these up total rubbish

Himself has hinted! Ha ha if he does not get into the Chelsea first team then wants to be loaned to a team where he can play in the prem as well as Europe. Chelsea won't sell to a champions league rival so it's out of swansea or Wigan. I know which one he might choose google it and you will see the news!

Wood was not given the chance, but we put rosenberg in, an appalling decision by someone, did no one see roy hodgson on sky saying you don't know about a young player till you try them

Mark my words he will stay at west brom before going to swansea

Well i'm a west brom fan and attended the end of season awards where you get to speak to the players and lukaku will not be at swansea or any other epl side next year other than chelsea or wba or abroad

Dont believe everything you read in the papers lukaku will stay another year at wba if chelsea let him his words not mine

Lukaku may not be at west brom especially if jose mourinho is back because he is stingy and won't see west brom as a good team

although we are pride of the midlands and be in top half of the table all season

It be good if lukaku stayed

Wheater wants to come home, he is boro through and through, sorry Bolton fans, the redcar rock is coming home

12 May 2013 18:58:54
Scott Flinders the Hartlepool keeper is signing for Bristol City as Heaton is off to Burnley

These two rumors are gaining momentum.

Apparently flinders has rejected city but Heaton has gone

14 May 2013 21:17:51
Flinders hasn't rejected anyone! If you're going by 'his' twitter page then its a fake so please take no notice! He will sign by the end of the week!



12 May 2013 18:22:58
Notts County Ins and Outs and you heard it here first!


Dumbaya - Crawley on a free
Barnard - Southampton (season long loan or he gets a pay off at saints)
Bakayogo - Tranmere
Batt - Millwall


Bartosz Białkowski - Ipswich or Blackpool £500k
Neal Bishop to Sheffield Utd / Blackpool (He wants out of County) £100k
Enoch Sowumni - Out on a free
Francois Zoko - Out on a free

Last two have contracts at county, so fees are required

No way in a million years you'll be getting bakayogo. Either staying with us, or going to a championship team. As if he'd go to a smaller club such as county

Sound good I hope its true



12 May 2013 18:48:59
if Bradford city go up they will try and sign
akinfenwa (to replace andy gray)
marlon pack

Akinfenwa is not good enough for league 1

Well andy gray isn't good enough for the conference let alone league 2

13 May 2013 07:23:06
No one has agreed with this rumour or clicked 'believable' as the first line says IF bradford go up. hhmmmm
True terrier



12 May 2013 18:09:28
Millwall are set to act on their managerial vacancy by appointing former boss Mark McGhee. The 55 year old is keen on getting back into club management after leaving Bristol Rovers in December.

Haha, no chance. McGhee is happy working under his mate Strachan for Scotland.

McGhee was holding out for that Scotland job the whole time he was with the Gas - ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE here!.

Chris taylor leaving millwall after turning down new deal



12 May 2013 18:07:04
Crawley are set to reveal that they have accepted an approach from Doncaster Rovers for manager Richie Barker. Rovers are employing a 'Head Coach' rather then a manager and feel the young boss is the ideal candidate.

12 May 2013 20:41:39
Barker not leaving he has already confirmed this at press interview two weeks ago

We haven't approached anyone yet! The board haven't even drawn up the final short list yet



12 May 2013 18:01:37
Edgar Davids rumoured to be joining Bristol Rovers after he has been spotted at the memorial stadium.

Same rumour posted in a little over a minute. must be the same poster therefore this rumour is a joke.



12 May 2013 17:40:49
Hull City to sign Chris Wood from Leicester, as Leicester fail to get promoted!

I doubt Chris Wood is good enough to make the premier league jump.

They could do worse than sign wood good player just lost a bit of form lately. may be carrying an injury though. jimlcfc



12 May 2013 17:36:29
Goalkeeper less Bristol City are looking at Ex Liverpool stopped Dean Bouzanis and recently relegated Scott Flinders as replacements for Tom Heaton & Dean Gerken



12 May 2013 17:35:42
Free scoring striker Lyle Taylor attracting interested from Coventry City. He plays for Falkirk in the first division.

Lyle stop spreading rumours mate. afcb si.

24 goals from 34 games is a good return let's hope he is out of contract. as. We. Cannot. Afford to buy anyone just yet.



12 May 2013 17:28:55
Leyton Orient have held talks with Julian Bennett who's about to be released by Sheffield Wednesday

Believe this if you want but I know this romour is false as yesterday me and my mates were talking to him in compton acres park (nottingham park) and he did admit he's leaving but he also said he's staying in midlands and btw he came to the park with his son and wife I spokk to julien this morning as he gave me his xbox gamertag

He WANTS to stay in the Midlands but none of the clubs are interested. I know.

Gary Sawyer's good enough at left-back. Don't need another one.



12 May 2013 18:00:21
Edgar Davids will join Bristol Rovers in a player/assistant manager role following Barnet's relegation from the football league.

Saw him leaving the mem in his Bentley earlier!

No chance whatsoever.

The guy lives in Barnet and has done for over 5 years why would he move to Bristol?

Just ridiculously unlikely he has stated his interest in staying at barnet and wouldn't relocate.

Him and john ward met in hertfordshire recently.



12 May 2013 17:28:41
Oxford manager Chris Wilder, told the Oxford mail on Thursday that he's signing 9 first team players this summer.
They will be a right back, centre back, two left back (one likely to be Luke O'Brien whose been at the club since November, the club are talking to him) 3 centre midfielders (two being left footers) a big target man and a quick goal poacher.
At least 2/3 of them will have a lot of experience and be 32/33 years old.
The club are expecting to hear back from forward Deane Smalley and centre midfielder Scott Davies, who were both offered new deals last week, before next weekend!

Rumours of the signings are.
RB Sean Clohessey/Jon Ostemobor
CB Joe Devera
LB Luke o'brien
CM Sergio Torres, Tom Soares, Danny Whitaker
CF Rene Howe, Ashley Grimes

Hope so, even if its only some of the players in are the ones shown. let's see what happens in the coming weeks

12 May 2013 22:18:51
Why On Earth Would Clohessy Leave Southend For Oxford? He Was Voted Player Of The Season, Played In All 59 Games And Has Stated He Is Settled In Southend And Will Sign A Two-Year Contract Extension In The Next Few Weeks

His Pay At Southend Would Be Much Better Than His Pay At Oxford Anyway

13 May 2013 09:14:15
so you know what oxford are paying players them

Oxford were paying enormous wages for a league 2 standard on players like Leven & Duberry. I image Clohessy would be on less than they were!

Southend playing budget is much larger than Oxford's.



12 May 2013 17:25:35
MK Dons keen on Bowery from Villa

Have Villa given up on him already or is this a loan? Got to say I thought he was superb when he played against us for Chesterfield up at their place. I remember Robbo saying as much too, so this isn't unfeasible.



12 May 2013 17:23:16
Gary johnson will swoop for Stevenage's wing duo freeman and morais if they manage to achieve promotion this year.

Take Freeman, he's awful, and Morais is a decent player, shame he is so injury prone.

Freeman's not awful he's just had a poor season this year!

Take Morais he's awful

Have freeman most overrated player ever, Gutted if we lose morais!



12 May 2013 17:40:04
Bournemouth interested in signing ex Scotland international Kris Boyd on a free in the summer when his deal is up.

12 May 2013 21:33:48
Be intrested to see who howe signs boyd could be a target because we are in need of some strikers

If true it would be great! Seems perfect in the role we need!



12 May 2013 17:20:17
Middlesbrough have made an enquiry to Falkirk for there striker Lyle Taylor. boro scouts have been watching the Staines born striker since Christmas time and have been massivly impressed. he has an impressive strike rate and finished up with 24 goals in Scottish division 2 last season it's reported a bid of between 200-300K may be enough to get his signiture

Blah bla bla. Just because he bagged a hatrick against us in pre-season doesn't mean we're signing him mate



12 May 2013 17:32:51
Norwich city close to agreeing deal for Adam Maher of Az Alkmaar.

I think this is the worst rumour I've seen on this site. Maher is the hottest prospect in the Netherlands and will probably go to, at the very least, Ajax and most likely a team like Arsenal.

Thats what they said about Van Wolfswinkel! Join the revolution!



12 May 2013 17:09:15
Henri Lansbury offered a double your money contract by mega rich AFC Bournemouth. The ambitious south coast club's billionaire Russian owners are determined to bring Premiership football to the Goldsands stadium.

Oh dear for goodness sake we've just been promoted to the championship

12 May 2013 21:19:50
Not a chance, Forest don't need to sell, plus why would he join Bournemouth?

We're focusing on staying up & building the club for the future.

Wake up. Its just the start. The Russians want more than the championship

12 May 2013 23:54:23
Doesn't matter how rich anybody's owners r it goes on gates and somehow Bournemouth may struggle what's average attendance not many at all keep dreaming

Doesn't it depend on INCOME, so that would include sponsorship surely.



12 May 2013 17:27:45
now that Norwich are safe Declan rudd will return to preston north end on a season loan also Grayson is looking at a right back said to be Clarke who was at Huddersfield also with moyes soon to be manager of Manchester United preston will use loans from man utd

I don't think Fergie likes PNE. He called back all the loans from the club after you potted Darren, so I can't see him allowing any now!

Moyes never sent 1 loan player from Everton to PNE in 11 years. so why would he send any now when it would upset Alex?

12 May 2013 22:34:55
the reason moyse never sent any young players to pne was he said the young players at everton were not good enough to go to preston as for upsetting sir alex its up to moyes who he sends the players to on loan

Iain turner?

Quiet frankly don't want any players from Manchester United if they were in the josh king school of ability he was crap, need a goalscorer x2 plus a creative midfielder the top 6, its a bad league

Moyes said "young players at Everton were not good enough to go to Preston". I really doubt that

Is that why he sent Seamus Coleman to Blackpool?

I think you mean ""Preston was not good enough for Everton's young players"

Turner and Gemmil spring to mind

You mean Scott Gemmill who never actually played under Moyes at Everton and had just 7 games with PNE before he joined Leicester the same season.

And Iain Turner who has played just 4 reserve games for Moyes and has had 9 'loans' in 9 years.

WOW. Moyes really gave PNE the pick of the squad.

Neither turner or gemmill were on loan, turner was a free.

Turner was on loan at first then phil brown sihned on a free, please know your facts before posting, many thanks by mg

To be fair, Moyes said when asked by the media why he doesn't loan player to PNE, he replied that they never ask for player.

Bill Kenwright is set to stun the football world by appointing a manager from the lower leagues to guide Everton next season.

Paul Tisdale is believed to have been recommended to him and he likes what he sees. Paul Tisdale will have discussions with him over the coming week.

Heard that steve clarke is earmarked for the job, it is a rumour site and this one is doing the rounds.

Fans want an experienced bloke and so does the club, no one in their right mind would give the job to an inexperienced
manager especially to a top premier league club, the end result could be a catastrophe!

Kenwright probably doesn't even know who Tisdale is or even where Exeter is!

Cant believe that and certainly not a manager with no experience, playing or managing at top flight. Tisdale is a good manager but no, can't believe it.



12 May 2013 16:35:31
Ex-Bristol City keeper Gerken will join Bristol Rovers on a 2-year deal this week after Steve Mildenhall turned an offer from the club down.

Yes, strangly i've also heard this!

Very unlikely.

Mildenhall to sign at the end of the month. watch this space.
Gerken are untrue a league 1 club are looking at him.

Happy with this - very good goal keeper and can understand why he would want to leave City - constantly over looked - that said I can't see Mildenhall turning us down as wants to move back to the West Country etc - can't see he's going to get many better offers unless he is holding off for Yeovil in the Championship (should they win the play offs).



12 May 2013 15:51:05
Rotherham midfielder Ben Pringle is set to sign for Wolves as part of a deal that will take Leigh Griffiths the other way

Sounds like typical Rotherham, offload our best player for a troublemaker like griffiths.

Pringle has just signed for another 2 years and Tony Stewart (Chairman of Rotherham United) has said they have learnt from Alan Lee that you can not sell your best players and expect it to have no impact. Highly doubt Pringle will go, he is also a popular one among fans.

2 year deal and then he's ours to sell / bargain with - Grffiths a trouble maker - for other teams YES PLEASE. But Pringle is a popular lad in Rotherham - BUT THAT's NOT THE FERGIE WAY IS IT!

Wolves have no manager!

Doubt Wolves will be buying or selling anyone until they have actually appointed a new manager!



12 May 2013 15:50:25
Cliftonville striker Liam Boyce is attracting interest from several English clubs including Doncaster, Rotherham, Wolves and Ipswich.

This lad could be the signing of the summer for whoever gets him.



12 May 2013 15:48:24
Rotherham have placed bids for Swansea striker Rory Donnelly and Inverness forward Billy McKay

This could be true as rory Donnelly turned us down in January and evans has watched McKay on a few occasions this season

Agree with the person above.
Although Swanseas manager claimed Donnelly had a role to play at Swansea, but we will see.


Donnelly won't be leaving swansea. He is rated very highly at the club and is expected to play a role in swanseas European campaign next term

As much as I hate to say it Doyley (watford ledgend) will be released at the end of the season

He's been phenomenal this season and offers so much in experience, so no chance.

LLoyd should go, time to move on great servent to the club.

He won't but he'll be more of a reserve/sub player.

13 May 2013 00:10:08

Charlton Athletic looking to bring in one striker with the release of ricardo fuller and wright Phillips set to be leaving, targets include:
John Obika (Tottenham)
Vaughan (Norwich)
Sam Baldock (Bristol City)
Powell is interested in Darren Bent (Aston Villa) returning but his high wages will act as a big stumbling block.
Dale Stephens is set to leave for around 1mill. Solly however will not be sold for anything under 4million.
Afew more youth team players will join the seniors next year after the success of Callum Hariott.

12 May 2013 18:30:08
I can see some u21's going out on loan first and the gaps being filled from u18's who also did very well. It's not usual to put them straight into the first team without some experience elsewhere.

Doncaster Rovers have approached rotherham for manager Steve Evans

He's just signed an extension

You can approach all you like the answer will be no!

No chance! Don't want that tool anywhere near our club

If donny wanted him we could take him but lucky for you guys we don't ;-)

SE has NOT just signed an extension - I think the statement was - "Theres no rush"

We wouldn't want him



12 May 2013 16:08:20
danny east and sonny bradly are OUT

rumours are-
charlie austin
juwon Oshaniwa
curtis davies
Chris Kirkland-player rejected city
Noel Hunt-free
David Stockdale-4 million (bruce said he wants to avoid spending ridiculous amounts of money)
Kasper schmeichel-2.4 million

I would probably go for Austin, Hunt, Davies, schmeichel

Never seen oshaniwa play but he has a good reputation from what I have heard and does get into the nigeria first team and is also a left back.
Don't rate dugeon much so possibly a good signing
if we do.

Tranmere rovers will offer dumbartons attacking midfielder scott agnew a contract in the summer as ronnie moore has scouted the midfielder all season after he scored 11 goals this season. Although other league one and SPL clubs are after him. Source: tv

Middlesbrough transfer deals rb solly, CB David weater, rw Albert adomah, cm j. Maghoma, sk Leigh Griffiths and bank Blake Simone Jackson

This seems more realistic than the others I've heard, and if we sell zemmama, haroun and hopefully emnes we should have the necessary funds

David wheater + albert adomah = 3m

Boro's transfer kitty = 300k

12 May 2013 22:54:03
January time! Bid accepted! Swansea + Danny graham = 5m! Wrong answer 300k **** just saying facts.

The deal for danny grahm was emnes plus 1m can't believe people still think we had 5m to spend if we had it why did we not spend any after graham turned us down the days of us spending 5m are gone until we get promoted FACT

Facts! Ha ha. Boro agreed a loan deal with Swansea for Graham with us buying him in the summer.

Ya facts are Sh

And any Boro fan can tell you we don't have that kind of money to spend, Graham deal was cash plus player. Boro could probably stretch to a million or so for a player but it would have to be someone very special and a great deal for the club.

Steve Gibson is putting his money into the club for stability, and not improvement, so were working with what we've already got

300k is probably a bit harsh but we defiantly won't be spending more than 1m without selling



12 May 2013 14:13:40
Leeds will sign Alex McCarthy according to Mc Dermott as he said Kenny isn't good enough

McCarthy will be expensive and there are other areas of the team that need more urgent attention, especially the midfield. Kenny is good enough.

McCarthy will be expensive and there are other areas of the team that need more urgent attention, especially the midfield. Kenny is good enough.

Wba boss to get everton job

I know The Baggies are on course for a top 9 finish, but honestly Clarke is doing himself no favours in his squad picks and defending Odious whinger although that's probably J. P telling him he has to pick him, the form since january has been dire and if it was not for the early season form this could have ended in relegation, not convinced by Clarke and if we are to stick with him then I hope he gets his team and tactics right next season else it, s a long hard slog against relegation.

If Leicester City fail to gain promotion Derby will try and sign David Nugent if they fail to sign Vaughan and Fryatt.

Dont be silly ( derby fan)

Well Leicester haven't got promoted so.

Would take any of the three. Prefer Vaughan though.

Hmmm we missed the Nugent boat under Billy Davies. Can't see him wanting to come to pride park. Post play-off wind-up.

Wages would be to big

More likely to be one of those three.

Would be a good signing but wages would be a problem



12 May 2013 13:22:56

I suspect these lads will get some game time now we are in league 1.

Northampton winger Chris Hackett is a target for Rothetham, Sheffield United and Crawley. Rotherham are also interested in Dundee forward Jonny Russell and Cheltenham full back Sido Jombati.

Doubt we would get johnny Russell but the other two easily

Russell won't go to good of a play for rothetham and the blades won't be able to afford him and as blades fan mcabe is tight and won't pay

Why would Hackett go anywhere else when he's showed some of his best form at the town this season, plus if we get promoted? but aidy won't get rid of him he's a star player for us UTC

Dean Furman is to have contract talks with Huddersfield this week. He's also speaking to Doncaster who he was on loan from Oldham last season.

He's overrated

Jumps ship and leaves team mates when things aren;t going well.

Very over rated like its been said.

Oldham actually did better without as our midfield went forward and not sidewards.

Got told JP MCGovern to Portsmouth

Looks decent played in football league for some good team and a lot of games wouldn't mind him is he any good Carlsile, Swindon, MK Dons, Sheffield Wednesday, Livingston and Sheffield United fans?

McGovern is a team player but underated by our fans here at Carlisle as he wasnt a fast winger like Robson but wasted out wide should have been put in mid as great passer of ball and good delivery budget dictated he went as played nearly every game.

As a boro fan, emnes is s****. Useless in the championship, dreadful in the premier league

Mateij Vydra will NOT be returning to Watford next season if they remain in the championship. he will instead be retained at udinese for there champions league push in serie A next season. however if Watford are promoted via winning the play offs he is more than likely to join the hornets on a free transfer on a 4 and half year deal.

Why would he join for 4 and a half years. ?

Because Forestieri joined for 5. 5

I've just understood your point. Why 1/2?

Somebodies making up porkies.

Fores had a 1/2 year extra on his deal because he signed in January
Players signed in the summer window rarely get odd contracts like that.
Case closed.

Maghoma will join m'bro now

Meredith leaving not a chance
Jones has already stated he will play another year
Wells will stay if Bradford go up otherwise he may leave
The rest I can see leaving

Marlon Pack more likely to join Wells at Huddersfield.

Why would you sign Logan, he's only played once in the last three yearsin a game that almost like a friendly!

Don't think we will want Meredith just signed skarz as left back for next season

Are you on crack Meredith to Rotherham not a chance

No he hasn't he played for Rotherham & Bristol Rovers in 2011 or 2012 didn't he

Whittaker would be a great signing for Bradford, was one of the only decent performers in league one for Chesterfield last season

Was chatting to ex bristol rovers player Andy gurney after charity game at the mem and apparently Jamie cureton is very close to agreeing and signing a 1 year deal with the club utg

Here we go again. we have asked him to come back for the last four years and he has turned his nose up to us. why do fans keep holding out for him he has no loyalty to us?

I can't remember hearing any definite confirmation that McGhee offer Curo a contract last season. I wouldn't say he's turned his nose up at us either, the fact that he's more than happy to appear in a Rovers shirt in the legends match every season goes to show he actually has a great affinity with the club still. I can see this potentially happening.

Have we ACTUALLY asked Jamie to come back - my understanding is that HE approached us last summer and Mark McGhee didn't feel he could cut it. HOW WRONG he was!.
Wouldnt be surprised to see Jamie return for his final season in football.

12 May 2013 14:50:39
Why would he move to Rotherham there no better than where he is and there are manny championship clubs wanting him

They wouldn't need to offer money his contract is up at the end of the urrent season

Grigg is out of contract but walsall will get compensation if he leaves. scoring 20 goals and playing International level means it will be a lot more than Rotherham have got. Have they finished paying all the debts from the last administration yet?

Yes they would need to pay a fee as he's under 24

Rotherham are a debt free club now

Well its a lie straight away.
Wilder came out the other day and said the positions we are signing. We are only signing ONE right back, you've named 2 in your 3!
with us signing 3 centre midfielders, Andy Whing will be back challenging his natural position of right back.

John lundstram - Everton loan

Will Grigg - Walsall £350k
Paddy madden - Yeovil £750k (if Yeovil don't go up)
Billy sharp - Southampton loan

+ 8 18-20 year olds to play in the development squad we have set up all of whom will be free agents and scouted by Brian flynn

Manager will be Paul dickov according to Ian snodin last night

Sharp has already agreed to join Nottingham Forest permanently after Billy Davies confirmed he wanted him at a meeting earlier this week. Plus forest have first option to sign him due to his loan agreement.

Will grigg will go to a top championship club or premier league club not Doncaster

How many times Furman isn;t free as you have had to pay comp for him as you got promoted yet he was free in the summer.

So he isn;t free as he has cost your club some compensation as it was in his loan deal to you.

Dickov nice guy but has no plan B or C in game so you won;t stay up if he becomes your manager.

You will struggle with him in charge and his response will be I have quality players here but we are getting any ;luck but take the positives.

12 May 2013 15:19:43
Why is every1 sayin so much money 4 will grigg he is out of contract and could sign 4 free all walsall would get is some compensation due to offerin him a contract and him bein under 23

Good luck with dickov, out of his depth when it comes to management. Clueless when it comes to tactics and sticks with underperforming senior players

Why would we accept £750,000 for Madden when there's so much interest in him and he still has two years left on his contract? Not only that but Carlisle may be due half of any transfer fee.

Rotherham won't sign martin woods he's injury prone and we've got more talent than him in midfield already

Dickov is to get the donny job and will make 2 of his old players his first signings. Furman and morais

Nah Neil Sullivan might join AFCW as a coach but we're about to sign John Sullivan as our no. 1

Stranger things have happened, but would be surprised if Neil Sullivan signs for Wimbledon as there are rumours of the younger, John Sullivan signing.

Will grigg is staying at walsall

We get dickov I'm sending back my season ticket I will not pay hundreds of pounds to watch a team fail

Dickov Didn't Do A Bad Job At Oldham! And You Call Yourself A Fan. You Ain't A Fan If Yo Threaten To Send Your Season Ticket Back!

Donny will get relegated if you have Dickov in charge as he is clueless on how to change things on the pitch, nice guy but lacks in plan B AND C.

If he brings in Taggart then your down by Xmas. lol

Dickov did an awful job! He told the younger players he was not interested in a reserve side and they'd be lucky if they got a few games a season. That's from one of the players too!

Why would I want to watch a team bein manager by a person who couldn't cut it in league 1? The championship is a missive step up league 1 was poor not many brilliant teams the championship will be the opposite

Why would he leave if he is making plans for next season

Heaton and nyatanga will be leaving this week, that will leave 11 players left from last season squad, with 4 of that 11 will be gone by September, Cunningham, Davies, Kelly, Adomah, Sean believes he needs a squad of 25 players, 18 players to find from the academy and to bring to the club is to many,

No money? Have you heard the name Steve lansdown majority shareholder of Bristol city owner of bristol rugby and Hargreaves and lansdown and o yeah he's a BILLIONAIRE! We're in 41 million debt that we do not have to pay back because he has paid it off.

Our £41m debt is to our owner, its not a real debt.

Its just so that he can get that dosh back if and when he sells the club.

Realistically Bristol City will be as competitive in terms of fees and wags as anyone in League one.

O'Driscoll in Botswana planning pre-season tour - does not sound like someone who is resigning?

Cassidy won't go to walsall next season, he is going to be in the Wolves first team

Carlisle will not go for him

Baxendale just signed a contract so unlucky. Grigg we will see but I doubt that aswell

Ha you'll never get Okunguae from Colchester, he would cost upwards of 400,000

Okuonghae has another year on his contract

Okuonghae has another year on his contract

The only way Cassidy will be playing in the Bescot will be playing AGAINST Walsall.

He is still the current Barnet manager

That means nothing we offer a move home and championship football so why would he not want too

Okounghae has TWO years left on his contract and is valued approx £450,000.
Lives in East London, not far from Colchester where he was pretty much ever present.
Where did you pick his name from?!

Ed any hull city rumours? {Ed002's Note - Nope.}

Too many players, wouldn't need to sign that many especially that we can get better players, don't want to rush into transfers and spend too much

But we do need to rush and get a cheep but premier league quality goal keeper before there all gone, what about scmicheal?

Notts County are showing lots of interest in Joel Grant of Wycombe, a deal could be sorted within the next few days

He is a good player good wing back

He's a winger or a forward, but should never be played at wing back as he is far too lazy

He's not a wing back. either a winger or attacking midfielder

He is signing Grant to replace the departing Alan Judge, and will be used as a roaming attacking midfielder in a free role behind the striker

Peterborough striker Dwight Gayle is the subject of bids from Aston Villa, Norwich, Southampton and Spurs. A bid of �7+ add on's will get Posh to prize with Gayle.

I would not want him for 5 million let alone 7!

3m tops

Arouna kone is only 6. 5 and proven quality in the premier league

"Not want him"?. we are quite happy to keep him thank you.

"Not want him"?. we are quite happy to keep him thank you.

Gayle is class! 5m at least. will hit 30+ in league 1. Posh will be League 1 champs next season.

I cannot see him going to Tottenham, that would be the most meteoric rise ever

Chairman will only let him go for £10,000,000 so he claims. A few million and it could happen.



12 May 2013 08:25:02
Derby are after James Vaughan but also on their list is Matty Fryatt. Alex Baptiste has spoken again to Derby and a decision on his future is iminent.

Derby will not be able to offer as much money in terms of a wage and signing on fee as other interested clubs in the championship. It all depends on how much Nigel Clough and his team can persuade him to come and buy into what they are doing at Derby. Apparently he is local and was brought up in Derby so that could play a part.

Tore Andre Flo will become strikers' coach at Preston North End.

Is that the Tore Andre Flo that lives and now works in Berkshire?

It's going to be a bit of a journey to Preston every day?

Maybe you could ask Jon Parkin. he's just down the road at Fleetwood.



12 May 2013 02:13:05
Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore has set his sights on Preston goalkeeper Stuckmann as Owain Fon Williams looks set to leave Rovers. Stuckmann's twin brother may also join for a trial.

Stuckman offered new contract at Preston on higher wages than Tranmere can afford.

But he would have a better chance to play in the Championship if he joined Tranmere

Not if you carry on that form! Relegation form

Higher chance of championship? our record under grayson was almost promotion form, since then tranmere have been awful. stuckmann also loves the pne fans and has stated he wants to sign a new contract at pne.



12 May 2013 02:07:37
Cheltenham defender Steve eliott is in talks about a return to Bristol rovers in a player coach role.

Will not happen as he has just signed a new 1year deal

Just signed on for another year

Then why has he just signed a new one year deal with cheltenham.

Close to big stevie as he still lives in Bristol but as much as I want him to come back to the mem he won't (at least not yet) he still has plenty of playing time in his legs yet! (his words not mine!)

He lives in Derby not Bristol.

Preston ins and outs

Lee novak (huddersfield)-free
Tom clarke (huddersfield)-500k
Jose baxter (oldham)-500k
Declan rudd (norwich)-loan
David worrall (bury)- 300k

Chris robertson- rotherham-free
Chris beardsley-stevenage-free
Andy procter-accrington-free
Thornsten stuckmann-burnley (out of contract)
Luke foster-port vale (out of contract)

12 May 2013 10:38:33
Tom Clarke has been released by Huddersfield. So is therefore a free transfer. However if Grayson really wants to pay money for him we will greatly accepted it. Wish people would look at facts before posting rumours.

Strange that port vale don't have a player called foster.

Stuckmann's signing a new contract. and we really don't have 1.3 million to spare on 3 players

Unlikely Preston will have money to pay fees for players.

There's no way you'll sign Baxter, he'd move to the championship if he does

I really doubt PNE have got £1.3m to spend.

Grayson has already said a number of times that it's Bosmans & frees next season for the club.

12 May 2013 13:44:39
Robertson, Beardsly and Procter are sill under contract so they can't leave on a free.

Tom Clarke £500k! Wow even if he was still in contract that's about ten times more than he is worth.

Jose baxter baby for 500k, you having a laugh? He is on a 2 yr conttact as well so we won't bullied into rubbish offers

12 May 2013 14:26:02
I know he doesn't play for portvale, he's going on a free. If you didn't know grayson has said they can go to clubs without a fee paid and yes grayson was going to pay 500k for tom clarke before he was released.

12 May 2013 16:10:54
Foster was a North End player this was suggesting he would be going to Port Vale not the other way around.

1. I agree with the point that we won't have 1.3mil to spend but North End have stated they will not restrict themselves to the Bosman market, so don't be surprised if we pay for players.

2. Beardsley, Roberston and Procter are still under contract yes, but its been said that they can go for a very minimal fee, if not nothing.

HA HA HA baxter would cost you at least a million as he has 2yrs left on his contract.

Do wish others would get their facts staright before saying these thigns and byt he way he's very happy at Oldham and can;t wait for next season with LJ as manager.


Schu of Bury was the subject of enquiries from PNE and Fleetwood.

The 30k figure is not sufficient to activate the 75k release clause.



12 May 2013 01:22:35
Middlesbrough hot from rockcliffe - incoming Titus Bramble, Will Keane, Nick Powell (loans) Mowbray also desperate for a pacy striker with Luke Moore and Delfounso top of his wanted list.

If this is true, it's quite exciting news. Titus bramble isn't good, but better than what we've currently got

Heard about the bramble link 3 weeks ago, also gets on very well with mowbray from their ipswich days.

Bramble isn't a bad centre half to be honest just prone to the odd silly mistake bit like bikey but if had to choose between the 2 i'd choose bramble

Bramble is well shady. I'd rather chew my face of than have him in our team.

Neil Warnock has admitted he hasn't been approached by Doncaster, but said he would be "interested"

He says he doesn't want to manage again.

Cant see him getting it tbh, I think its dickov with the amount of speculation he's had over it.

Warnocks said that before, but he'll get a job down south

12 May 2013 15:07:48
Get your facts right. One of the guys from the Doncaster free press interviewed him and he said he's "interested"
