  Liverpool transfer news

A group of Slovak officals are staying in one of Liverpools big hotels. Apparently one of them is Jurelaj venglos, who is the agent for Slovak midfield maestro Hamšik. It is believed that Napoli have offered the 21 year old a contract extension that would book his services until 2013, although it is also rumoured that Juventus have something to say about this matter. So could Marek be wearing a pool shirt next season. . watch this space.
  Look out fIbrahim Afellay to sign for arsenal
  Sunderland will sign Lee Cattermole, Fabian Delph and Andrew Driver.

Martyn Waghorn is joining Leeds Utd on a season long loan.
  Now that Stephane M'bia has agreed to join Marseille, expect Lorik Cana to complete a move to the Premier League in the next week.
The interested parties are Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool and Everton. Everton were known to be interested in M'bia but may settle for Cana instead. However Cana wants the Champions League Football he had at Marseille so would probably prefer Arsenal or Liverpool. My moneys on Arsenal as they are far greater need of a player like him.
  I have a really good source at mellwood(liverpool)and i can tell u this news is REAL,Liverpool WILL sign David Silva in the next 2 weeks for 24 million euros (its a done deal).ALONSO MASCHERANO will NOT be going anywere masch is staying for 1 more season because he believes we will win league next season and we are getting 1 more player RUUD van NISTELROOY for 1.5m pounds on 2 yr deal (close to being completed)he was at mellwood last thursday. NO MORE RIBERY,AGUERO,CANA,CATTERMOLE,VILLA nonsense we don't have the money rafa believes we are close and is happy with these new players,babel will play a more central role next season.Players leaving are ITANDJE,VORONIN,DOSSENA that's it u heard it here 1st STEPHEN DODD
  Derby – I was at the Burton game on Saturday. I over heard a director of Burton saying that Young Nigel is about to walk as he been double crossed.

No money to spend and his best players are been sold from under him.

Watch this space, believe me if you like but I know what I heard and I am well pissed off
  Darcy Blake, who looks to have no future at Cardiff City, is wanted by a host of League 2 clubs.

It is thought that these include Bradford City, Notts. County, Cheltenham Town and Hereford United.
  Chris Killeen will be shown the door at Parkhead, and is attracting the interest of Championship sides Plymouth Argyle, Cardiff City and Bristol City.
  Fabian Delph rumour–mongers!
Just to clear a few things up; the two bids made for Delph were, according to my source, from Villa, for £8,000,000. The other was apparently from Manchester United. You will notice that I have spelled out the numbers above. That is because I am seeing an awful lot of rumours linking Delphinho with 6 and 7mil moves. Unless a swap or other makeweight is agreed, this will not happen! Why would Ken Bates reject an 8mil bid for a 6mil one; he may be old and insane, but that is taking the mick surely.
Just to reassure the Everton fan worried about Delph's physique. I agree that he is a small player, but you must not judge him on this. Last season, Fabian Delph picked up more yellow cards for Leeds United than any other player, that's including the ever–larey Jermaine Beckford. At academy level, Delph trained as a centre–half. I think you can see what I am saying. He is one of the toughest tackling wingers you will see.
Incidently, I think a move to Goodison would be perfect; Delph can adapt to the style of play, he would get games, and if anyone can make him any better, David Moyes can. The issue is money. The bar is set at 8mil+
Moving away from matters White, I am hearing mumblings about wantaway Blackburn striker Paul Gallagher. Something about a move to Roy Keane's Ipswich? I'm afraid the phone–line was terrible, and my mate was unfortunately cut off by a loud gunshot.
Malcolm Shaffer

  Steve Gohouri–Borussia Monchengladbach to Arsenal
  Hi I was at the York city vs Leeds utd match today, and I saw Giles Grimandi and I think MON, (though I could have been mistaken)and unlike people on this site I do not claim to have overheard their transfer targets or anything else, as I was too far away, but I presume they were scouting Delph, however he had a dismal showing, and I doubt that theyu would be signing him now, or atleast, it may put them off, and he can't even blame KitKat crescents pitch as it was immaculate today. Hopefully today is signs of things to come from the minstermen.
  Sunderland have a deal in place to sign Stewart Downing on loan until January – with a view to making it permanent after reviewing his fitness. From the horse's mouth so to speak.
  Aston Villa will explode into transfer activity in the next two weeks by making an incredible SEVEN signings. Martin O'Neill is to go against his normal policy of leaving it late to do deals and is keen to increase the squad size significantly before they travel to Spain for the pre season Peace cup. Do expect Marlon Harewood to leave for Hull City though for around £2.5m and Nathan Delfouneso to go out on loan for the season to – Cardiff City.


Fabian Delph – (Leeds) £5m and a further £2m in future installments
Wesley Sneijder – (Real Madrid) £13m
Tuncay – (Middlesbrough) £5.5m
Phillipe Mexes – (Roma) £12m
Ryan Shawcross – (Stoke) £6.5m
Stuart Downing – (Middlesborough) £10m
Steven Appiah – Fenerbache – Out of Contract


Marlon Harewood – Hull £2.5m
Nathan Delfouneso – Cardiff (loan)
Nigel Reo Coker – Fulham £6m
Isiah Osbourne – Leicester (loan)
Barry Bannon – Derby (loan)
  Today Gianfranco Zola has said West Ham will sign 4 more players, Mancini being the first on a 1 year loan to be made permanent next Summer, an experienced striker, this is rumoured from inside the club that it will be Carlos Tevez ( Sorry City fans he's not signing for you ), this would suit his agent as he now works for West Ham, a young striker believed to be Balotelli on a 1 year loan which will also become permanent next Summer. The 4th will be Joe Cole on loan becoming permanent in January as he is unhappy being a bit part player at Stamford Bridge, Tottenham approached Chelsea first for a loan deal but he has turned them down.
  Breaking news this sun evening. Sir Alex to spring another major shock to the world of football by completing the capture of Ronaldinho over the next couple of days. United have already had talks with his brother and agent and personal terms have almost been agreed. United will make a bid to Milan next
  The signing of QPR's Wayne Routledge to Cardiff City was completed Monday (13th July) morning.

The deal is worth an initial £1.5m, rising to £2.5m depending on appearances and goals scored.

Routledge will be paid £10k per week, which is a drop from the £20k per week he's getting at QPR. But he's on good terms with the Cardiff manager Dave Jones, which is why he took the pay cut.

Fact. Dudders told me. :–)
Felipe Melo is always the speculation but I think that he will go to Juve.
Lorik Cana it's not a good choice, it's a medium player.
Bassong and Micah Richards are the futurs of Arsenal, they are younger, stronger and also fantastic defenser!
The players that I believe who will win in Arsenal are:
Obafemi Martins(10M) or Edin Dzeko(20M)
Joćo Moutinho(18M) or Steven defour(12M)
Emanuelson(7M) or Stephen Ireland(15M)
Axel Witsel(10M) or Robben(27M)
Huntelaar(23M) or Van der Vaart(17M)
Drenthe(13M) or Luis Suarez(14M)
Giovanni Dos Santos(7M) or G.Rossi(30M)
Armand Traoré(PSG)
Bendtner(Bayern Munich)
  Just thought i would tell you that my nephew is antonio bryan(man u reserves & u18) and he was telling us last night on the phone that when saying his good lucks to his teammate frazier campbell, Frazier said "I think some of you's lads should leave aswell with aguero coming any day soon"
  Wayne Routledge will sign for Cardiff this week after pleading for a move back there. Tom Heaton deal to QPR might still be on despite his high wage demands and Aaron Mclean is being lined up
  Nacho novo is going to blackpool for 100.000
  Was over in Barcelona this week and I saw Martin Bain walking into the nou camp. Don't know what that's about but there may be a possibility of a loan move for some young players like bojan who would gain alot of experience playing for a team in the champions league.
Anyway onto some actual rumours

  Who is the most talked about English player on this site? Yes that's correct, Ash. Young. Why would hge choose to go to the Toffee's or the Spuds when the top 4 in the prem. all want him. Some dinkle actually suggested that my head was in a dark place for even thinking that an exchange could be possible on a 2–4–1 deal. Well I am pleased to see that others are putting the idiot in his place. Strong rumours here are saying that Young is happy to talk to the spuds, but has MON given him the OK? I think not. Then Manu are said to be in the frame. Gooners, Chelski both rumoured to be anticipating bids. Could this be what MON is waiting for, a bidding war, and who knows what will be the outcome. Seems that £25m is the most popular price, but if a war starts then £30m+ is on the cards. This would give MON enough money to buy almost who he wants. Downing is in according to many for £10m, Bent, Bentley and MON's wish, Huddlestone. Delph, Naughton, Defour are all in this mix, but the outcome of Young future will mark the start of a huge buying spree by MON. It also means that out will go Reo–Coker, Storey, Sidwell, Knight, Heskey, Guzen, Delfones––, Gardener(shame). Lets do a sum. £30m for Young,£30m for thr rest, Plus £30m from Mr Lerner and you have, give or take, £100m. Now that's a budget that even Benitez would accept. Its all wait and see

The Robins this week will be placing a bid for Stockport County Centre Forward – Oli Johnson.
Lee Johnson is also keeping tabs on a number of young prospects in League One them being:

Anthony Pilkington – Huddersfield Town.
Neal Eardley – Oldham Athletic.
Fabian Delph – Leeds United.
Dominic Blizzard – Stockport County.

Don't expect any of these signings to be announced until late July. Lee wants them all to be revealed together but fears this won't happen because of the amount of speculation this summer.
  Andy Carroll will sign 6 month loan with Blackpool before the start of the season.

number of signs happening in next 7 days.

  Oba Martins to join Liverpool with ngog going to newcastle on seasons loan
  Leicester's Andy King will move to Aston Villa for a fee of £1.5m pounds, rising to £2m. O'Neill sees King as a long term replacement for Petrov. O'Neill has also withdrew his interest in Leeds' Fabian Delph, who is likely to join Fulham for a fee around £7m with incentives for international appearances.

Leicester will replace King with Norwich's Sammy Clingan who will cost £700k + £300k after promotion. Pearson is also set to bring in Simeon Jackson from Gillingham for 300k, with DJ Campbell leaving, with Coventry is preferred destination for a similar fee.
  "Rafa hinted he was going to break the Liverpool transfer record currently £26m for Fernando Torres. Sergio 'Kun' Aguero is more realistic for roughly £30m, where as Ribery would cost close to double that if not more

  Breaking News From The North–East

Keegan Is Set To Be Re–Appointed Newcastle United Manager.

The Profitable Group Will Takeover the club by the weekend
  To the Liverpool/United fans who have been saying they will sign David Silva in the next few weeks, you have all been saying this since the transfer period started (he will sign next week/ two weeks etc etc) and yet he still hasn't signed.
I believe we (LFC) will sign him but I'm not going to state a date and look stupid. We won't sign anyone else and this signing we supposed to be getting to 'upset' Fergie, I personally believe is nonsense and that Rafa is just upset that ManU have got(although I hate to admit it) possibly the best deal of this transfer period.

To the owner of this site, great job, but who do you support? Just wondering.

Madrid have basically been told where to go by Liverpool FC and Torres has stated he would never stoop so low as to play for them. Kuyt has laughed off these rumours along with Riera BUT Arbeloa may leave the club as Johnson is now first choice right back. Alonso does not want to join Madrid as he is Basque. IF he were to leave and only IF, it would be to join Barcelona, but he has re–iterated his desire to stay at Liverpool for the near future.

  Norwich City Football Club News!

As the NCFC squad jet off north of the border to continue season preparations there will be two notable exceptions messers Clingan and Russell.
Assistant Ian Butterworth has revealed that the midfield maestros will be left in Colney after interesting other clubs.
Interest has been high in the two players with Clingan attracting Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry, Celtic and Fulham, It is thought that any potential deal could involve players moving in the other direction plus cash. Reports today suggest that Sammy has already turned down a move to the Ricoh Arena which would suggest he targets a bigger more ambitious club.
Russell has been attracting Preston, Blackpool and Peterborough with a switch to PNE for £500K plus Simon Whaley most likely.
As for players coming in Gunn has taken all trialists with him on the Scottish tour including the newest one, striker Goran Maric trialling from Celta Vigo.
It is also widely expected that Scott Nielsen will sign from Cambridge City by the end of the tour.
  Ok firstly to the guy who said he wanted aguero at man u seriously mate rooney and aguero together would be game over for everyone else, just as torres aguero would be. Aguero IS already strong enough for the prem, and im hoping every day that he stays at atletico till next year when he comes to liverpool (we can't afford him at the mo). To scouse pride i think rafa said wed break 'A' transfer record this season, which we have done already with johnson our most expensive DEFENDER ever, so unfortunately i wouldn't expect to see anyone big come in unless we lose xabi or masch.
Also everyone keeps linking man utd with all the french youngsters at the mo but no one has mentioned eden hazard who is the best of the lot! If i was fergie and i had 80mil and id said i was only gonna get young prospects id go–
henri saivet, mamadou sakho, micah richards (can play def mid!), eden hazard, jack rodwell and michael johnson.Duckula
  To the deluded coventry fan .sorry mate but danny fox is going to forest ,and for no–where near the crazy figures you are quoting .also too be confirmed this week is the season long loan of chris gunter .harry has already stated he does not want to sell ,but is happy to release him on loan .
  Brian Easton will sign for Burnley on Tuesday, when he travels down to have a medical at the club. He will be on the books in time for the USA tour on Thursday. Fabrice Pancrate will not join Burnley on trial now, as he is not willing to go on trial at any club.
  Cardiff are set to fly out Rickie Lambert to Portugal for contract talks tomorrow morning after agreeing an initial £600k fee with Bristol Rovers. It is thought Aaron Morris will join Bristol on loan for the remainder of the season, after he completes a full pre–season with Cardiff.

Nottingham forest are set to sign Shaun barker for 800,000 from blackpool, after derby had 2 offers rejected, this will be announced later this week.

Forest are also chasing polish international radoslaw majewski, on a season long loan, he has had a successful season in poland and now wants to come to england.

Take it or leave it offers have also been put in for Dexter Blackstock, Paul McKenna, Matt Mills, and Dan Fox.
  West ham to buy in a few new players, mainly on loan and the most likely one is to be mancini. we don't need to many new players in as we have such good talent coming through our youth team.
