Still strong rumours linking Dwight gayle the peterbrough loanee who would apparently cost just £200,000 and soon to be out of contract Nigel reo Coker currently of ipswich town with the boro
Other targets are thought to include

Roary Donnelly - swansea loan - talks have taken place

AJ Leicht Smith - Crewe - interest lower league pottential

Harry forester - brentford - Cameron park on loan for rest of season + £3 million and add ons

Nicky bailey is being linked with a move to crystal palace although nothing in this story apart from he is out of contract and not playing as much I see him as a crucial player and can't see him moving to be honest

Interestingly on the downing deal the latest news coming out is that Liverpool are willing to pay £45,000 of his £70,000 a week wages with boro paying the other £25,000 and if a deal is done there would be a clause that would allow boro to purchase downing for £6 million depending on if the club are promoted this season
Downing has apparently told friends and family on Teesside that he still wants to make a go of it at liverpool however if he is to move on then a move back to middlesnrough would be his undoubted first choice

to the people saying that Ryan Harley,
the Brighton player, is going to go for
6 million are absolute persons.. he's not
worth 6 quid let alone 6 million...

Tend to disagree here. But agree the value if £6m is a bit steep. £1m - £2m tops.



13 Dec 2012 15:36:16
Dundee are looking to bring in Bulgarian forward Anatoli Todorov from Bretsnik 1948, Todorov who just a few years ago was touted to be the national teams next big star has been lost in the shadows. Dundee will make a loan raid for the forward in the hope that he can fire them to safety in the SPL.

No chance!I'am from bulgaria and this is impossible .



13 Dec 2012 15:29:15
Spanish striker/midfielder Oskitz Estefania could be on his way to England. The 26 year old who currently plays for Arandina is being watched by Doncaster Rovers. My sources have lead me to believe that Dean Saunders might make a loan raid for the striker in the hope that he has uncovered a gem. If Oskitz did impress he would leave for a nominal fee.



13 Dec 2012 14:55:33

Barnsley look resigned to losing striker Craig Davies in January. The striker has a clause were a bid of £700,000 would be enough to see him leave. Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Leeds are monitoring his situation very closely.

Good buisness not as good as what people make out average striker to me uuuureeeddddzzz

Hes done amazing at a rubbish club think what he could do with better players around him

With the service he gets he done good....

As he now!!!!

He hasnt got any release clause in his contract

13 Dec 2012 13:33:24

Graham Westley will be sacked as PNE manager if they lose their next two league games and get knocked out of the JPT by Bury.

100% He will not be sacked. PNE have no money to pay him compensation. They have sacked numerous managers in the past and it has just not worked, so why would it now,especially with no money.



13 Dec 2012 13:20:26
I was in Revolution in Swansea lastnight, Marvin Emnes was out with Kemy Agustien. Could it mean he's on his way back to South Wales in January?

No, swansea and boro previously had a league cup game, and both emnes and agustein are friends, being both dutch so i dont think it really sugests anything of a transfer

Im sure Laudrup and Mowbury would be happy with their players being out on the lash in mid week. At least post a decent rumour instead of one that has been mentioned time and time again regarding Emnes.

No probably there bcoz middlesborough played in swansea



13 Dec 2012 12:07:25
Troy Deeney looks set to leave Watford in January as he only has 6 month left on his contract. It looks like he will join Burnley, sheff Wednesday or Bournemouth.

I have spoken to Troy. He is a Birmingham supported thru and thru so if he does leave it will be for Birmingham

Totally Bull! So we'd sell someone who's playing every week and banging in goals. Get real.

I spoke to Troy he's going nowhere!! until the summer.. then he's off to the premiership ( with Watford )

He has an option for a further year, he's going no ware

Total rubbish! He'll be offered a good contract and sign it. Why would he want to leave a club on the up?



13 Dec 2012 11:27:27
Portsmouth look set to be released into the hands of Portpin following todays court case where PKF backed down over new evidence.

Bit of a problem then that Portpin can't pass the Owners and Directors Test {Ed003's Note - yet ! }

Pompey can only go to the fans as no money men will buy a club with no ground or support

There was no court case was there thought it was delayed until tomorrow

They cannot pass the fit and proper persons test. If the Pompey Supporters Trust cannot takeover successfully the club liquidates, unless a third party comes out of the woodworks.



13 Dec 2012 11:27:14
Craig Davis will leave oakwell for £300k in January transfer window with Ipswich likely destination

13 Dec 2012 10:24:13
Millwall looking at McGoldrick. If we dont sign chris wood then we will try to sign him. Don't know hy because he has a terrible championship goal scoring record.

13 Dec 2012 16:28:17

13 Dec 2012 10:09:39
Marko Arnautovic to join Norwich in January. 6m deal

Jose Mourinho said that Arnautovic "is a fantastic person but has the attitude of a child

Tottenham's January transfer gossip.

Wilfred Zaha - Crystal Palace (£8m)
Ashley Young - Man United (£12m)
Daniel Sturridge - Chelsea (£10m)

Jermaine Defoe - QPR (£4m)
David Bentley - Brighton (loan/free)
Gareth Bale - Man City (£30m)

Why would Spurs sell their top scorer never mind for such a silly price and arguably their best player for only £30 mill when Real Madrid would pay far more

All of these ins and outs are completely unrealistic, even Bentley because Brighton couldn't afford his wages

Defoe to QPR lol! Can't c any of these happening, especially at the prices quoted.

Bale would be a 'steel' at £30 million. All the top clubs (Real, Barca, Juventus Paris St Germain and the two Manchesters) would be interested and the price would be approaching the £45 to £50 million mark.
Defoe at £4 million is equally ridiculous.
since Levy is no fool deals at the quoted prices just aren't credible.

Brighton could afford his wages, but no way in hell would they want him, he's shocking and really wouldnt get into their team. As for bale, i couldnt see him leaving us to go to another english team

Defoe 13 goals already. 4 million lol.............................



13 Dec 2012 08:01:32
Brighton are attempting to sign David Bentley on loan from Tottenham untill end if season with a view to a permanent move. Bentley currently out on loan to Russian team FC Rostov untill end of December is not in Spurs boss AVB's plans.



13 Dec 2012 07:21:08
Villa are set to move on Darren Bent in January with Alfred Finnbogason his replacement.
The Icelandic ace scoring 12 goals in 14 matches this season would partner star striker Christian Benteke perfectly.



12 Dec 2012 23:50:38
Manchester City have allowed forward John Guidetti to speak to both Manchester United and newly rich Argentinian side Instituto de Cordoba.
Manager Roberto Mancini is happy to let Guidetti go anywhere and could join rivals United for £5 million.
Instituto are also keen on the Sweden international and could sign him on loan until the summer.

Could you quote something about Instituto's wealth? As far as I know, they're just a common Argentinian club in the second tier!



12 Dec 2012 23:47:34
Reading are set to use their Russian contacts to try and sign 21 year old Dynamo Moscow forward Aleksandr Kokorin in for £6 million in January.



12 Dec 2012 23:45:56

12 Dec 2012 23:44:11
Manchester City are wanting to improve their defence with the capture of Montpellier captain Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. The 23 year old impressed last season in France with the title winning side and will cost City around £18 million.



12 Dec 2012 23:41:52
Newcastle have offered Tavriya Simferopol forward Anton Shynder a trial for January. The 25 year old is out of contract in the summer but has been told he can leave his side in the New Year to try and earn the Ukrainian side a bit of money.



12 Dec 2012 23:39:56
Chelsea are chasing a bid for young Brazilian midfielder Bernard from Atletico Mineiro. Other European clubs are chasing the player but Rafa Benitez is leading the chase.



12 Dec 2012 23:29:53
Barnsley are set to sack Keith Hill no matter the result with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday after the former Rochdale man has an argument with the board late Sunday evening.
Newcastle Academy Director Joe Joyce is set to be the new manager after General Director approached the Premier League club Monday morning to speak to Joyce.
The former Barnsley player has told the Oakwell club that he would like former Ipswich and Notts County player Jamie Clapham as his right hand man.
Joyce is also keen on bringing in former teammate Gerry Taggart as another member of his new staff.

In your dreams never happen

Mr Blobby would be a perfect replacement for Keith Hill. He has got a better chance keeping us up, Hill is just so negative and never takes blame for anything, just us fans and the palyers.

Barnsley management board dont have the ability to organise this before sacking Hill if it happens.

I wish that the so called fans who keep going on about Barnsley defenders would have a look at the stats. Only 4 teams have a significantly better home goals against than Barnsley and only 8 teams have a significantly better away goals against. Our away goals against figure is the same as Cardiff who top the league! The problem becomes obvious when you look at the goals for column where we have only got a total of 21 - only Peterborough have scored less. We have been desperate for strikers all season, exacerbated by the injury to Davies but as soon as we got Tudgay, Hill then messed about with the defence of Stones, Foster, Wiseman and Goldbourne who had actually being doing OK. If you have a poor attack then it puts all the weight on to the defence and midfield. Still wouldn't be sorry to see Bobby Hassell back in the centre of defence though.



12 Dec 2012 23:38:08
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is chasing a winger and a forwad.
The striker is thought to be Blackpool player Thomas Ince. Ince was told he could leave Anfield in the summer of 2011 but Rodgers feels he could add width to his side with a possible return for the 20 year old. The England under 21 international could cost around £7 million after impressing the Premier League club this campaign, being one of the leading scorers in the Championship.
The player is thought to be Leicester attacker Martyn Waghorn. The 22 year old is still regarded as having a lot of potential and has been a long time admirer of Rodgers. A bid of £2 million is expected to be made over the Christmas period.

I am definately not a leciester fan but can tell you that they played 3 million +
for Waghorn and hes in the team so why would they let him go for less especially in the timehes been there hes had numerous england youth call ups.



12 Dec 2012 23:22:31
Newcastle United are said to be interested in signing SK Brann forward Kim Ojo as a possible replacement for Demba Ba

I really hope this is true, still young and has 15 goals/10 assists in 34 games this season. Sign him up Pardew! Before someone else does!
