Stoke are looking to a loan move for Chelsea's Marko Marin in january, also stoke are looking to bring in Martin Olsson from blackburn and bring in a new striker



14 Dec 2012 22:20:37
Not too bothered about Morison going. He's similar to Holt and i think we'd do better bringing Simeon Jackson on as a sub. He'd have much more chance of getting onto balls forward cos he's fast. What does the guy have to do to get a chance. He's played much better than Morison when he's been on. Always looked dangerous for assists too and gives more effort. I don't wanna see him leave but if he doesn't get a decent chance to prove himself he'll have no choice.



14 Dec 2012 20:57:58
Swindon are set to sign Akpo Sodje on two-year deal in January. He is a free agent after leaving Preston because he rejected a further month to month contact. He scored seven times in 17 appearances at Deepdale. {Ed003's Note - he wont pass a medical,that's why he has only been offered monthly ones at PNE,whoever does sign him are taking a risk}

He is not worth a 2 yr contract month to month is best deal for him

14 Dec 2012 17:00:17
Almunia's been in England since 2004 and is now playing regular football. Why would he go back to Spain now?



14 Dec 2012 12:59:41
ipswich town have made a £500,000
bid for inform port vale striker tom
pope. The valiants are likely to accept
the offer as their financial balance
isn't the best and he wants to move
to a higher division team.

Absolute Bull, Vale are in there best financial position ever, just being bought out of admin by two multi-millionaires and being debt free, Popey has frequently told local press that he wouldn't go anywhere, as he is a lifelong Vale fan and has said the only thing he ever wanted to do was score goals for Vale.

He,s not worth 50,000 let alone 500,00 thats why ipswich are where they are .

Sick of this rumour bout popey leaving not goin to happen just signed a year extention and longtime vale fan with a young family who are settled here



14 Dec 2012 12:16:05
Laurence Bassini is going to make an eleventh-hour bid for Portsmouth. {Ed002's Note -

Bassini is under investigation by the FA for misconduct involving financial matters whilst he was in charge of watford - so doubt he would even be entertained by the administrators

Sounds an ideal fit (up) for Pompey!

Bassini would never pass the leagues owners test

He made a bid months ago



14 Dec 2012 12:15:44
arsenal ins:
strootman-£15 million
wilfried zaha-£10 million
nani- swap deal for walcott
huntelaar-£8 million

arshavin to zenit-£3 million
chamakh to fulham on a free
squillaci to montpellier on a free

I don't know why everyone thinks zaha is the next best thing, hes an average player



14 Dec 2012 11:06:35
New York Red Bulls striker Kenny Cooper has stated that he is interested in moving to Celtic in the January Transfer Window, Cooper has been attracting interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers , Blackpool, QPR , Reading and Millwall, but Celtic are in pole position of landing the American International Striker, Cooper stated on New York Red Bulls Fan Centre.

"Celtic is a great football club,their form in the Champions League has proved that they are one of the biggest football clubs in the UK, moving to Celtic in January could be a possibility,but there would have to be an agreement in place between both football club's in terms of a transfer , I am very interested in the move and hope something can materialise in January "

Hope this isnt the same one that was a waste of space at Argyle a few seasons back

Leicester are speaking to Wolves about a possible move for Jake Cassidy, currently on loan at Tranmere Rovers. The 19 year old is surplus to requirements at molineux but has averaged a goal every two games at the League One leaders, scoring 16 goals in 33 appearances and fits the profile of young hungry players that Pearson likes to bring through.

Tranmere have got first refusal, if wolves send cassidy out on loan again

Further to that reply I have no doubt that given the choice between Leicester and Tranmere, Jake will stay at Rovers to finish the job that he started.

Wolves have refused a second loan option for Tranmere as they want to access his progression.

Get your facts right mate tranmere have 1st option if he goes back out plus wolves would not loan to a league rival

Yeah, as I was posting my reply I was thinking that I have to admit it's likely we won't be allowed to keep him; Wolves are struggling for form and goals, and Cass has been on fire in spells, I wouldn't be surprised at all if they want him back for the second half of the season. Good luck to him if so, but hope he stays. If not then remember the name...Cole Stockton. You'll know about him soon enough.

Leeds United are looking at a number of players in positions Neil Warnock has stated intent of strengthening:

In Attack-

Former Barnsley now West Ham striker Ricardo Vaz Te (Loan until end of season with permanent move in the Summer).

Former Leeds now St. Ettienne winger Max Gradel.


A number of options for LB including Reading's Ian Harte, Southampton's Luke Shaw, Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand (Loan).

Ryan Bertrand is a first team player at Chelsea now, especially with Ashley Cole going to PSG in January. Chelsea need their young left back. Also West Ham will want to keep RVT at West Ham due to lack of strikers and Carroll's injury.

Gradel said he'd be open for a return to Leeds, but not at this moment in time.

Ian Harte and Luke Shaw could happen.


Luke Shaw could happen, are you having a laugh - I guess you know nothing about the player

Luke Shaw is starting for Saints and playing well why would they farm him out

Luke shaw is probably saints best defender at the moment, he wont be going

Betrand on loan? come off it

If saints wouldn't sell Luke Shaw to Chelsea or Arsenal when he was 16 for 5 million, why the heck would we or the player go to Leeds?!!
Ridiculous post.

Because Luke Shaw is only 17 and could do with some more first team experience. Yes I know he has been playing since November, but I wouldn't be suprised to see him go out of loan to the Championship.


Ryan Bertrand is too good for Leeds, he is in the first team for Chelsea! he will probably be first choice left back when Ashley cole leaves

And I am sure vaz te is injured?

IJA-you clearly know nothing about football. Luke Shaw to Leeds, not in a million years. And similarly, not to Man.U, Man.C, Arsenal or Liverpool.

Next it will be Messi to Leeds because he is bored scoring goals in Spain.

Let's keep this a rumour site-not fantasy football.

Never going to happen. Luke is a Saint through and through and will be in a first team on a very regular basis.

For saints to sell Luke shaw it would cost any suitor a small fortune. No chance at all.

'Yes i know he has been playing (as first choice LB in the Premiership) since November, but i wouldn't be surprised to see him go out on loan to the Championship, for more first team experience'??. Classic.

Luke Shaw will not leave Southampton on permanent or loan. He is one of the better players in the side and improving still! He won't be allowed to leave being so important and with the want for players from our youth system.

You leeds fan make me laugh you can have Danny Fox or Ryan dickson but not Luke Shaw way to good for your team

Vaz te obviously isn't going anywhere sure it's my twelve year old brothers birthday today and he got Vaz te on his new hammers shirt.

Luke Shaw is 17. He is one of the hottest young prospects in English football. He has been dubbed 'the new Gareth Bale'. Arsenal, City, Utd and Chelsea have been sniffing around him for a couple of years now. He has just broken into Saints first team and not only does not look at all out of place at premier league level but he has put in solid defensive performances as part of a much improved Saints back line whilst looking threatening when getting forward. All this from a player who does not turn 18 until July. So Saints will just loan him out to Leeds in the championship??!!!

How can shaw be to good for Leeds, he plays for soton, and if i remember rightly we stuffed em not long ago, and soon be changing places

This is all false..Gradel is the only decent rumour doing the rounds



14 Dec 2012 08:05:52
Izale Mcleod being tracked by Mkdons who need a prolific goalscorer to move up to the championship next season. Any other dons january transfer news?

Well he's hardly prolific.

Would be a great signing for robbo, definately boost the teams morale



14 Dec 2012 04:11:48
robbie keane to celtic in jan

This may be true - apparently it was always Keane's dream as a kid to go out on loan in January.

Hope Robbie Keane never sets foot in Paradise again just a total mercencary in my opinion.

He was already here in Jan. Your rumour is a few years to late.



14 Dec 2012 02:13:01
