  I can tell you this now the following three transfer are extreme likely from friend of my father who is in contact with many people in football. .

Finally i can tell you that Sheffield Wednesday will sign the triallistMileta Matovic who is at the club
  Fulham have made an enquiry for SC Heerenveen midfielder Mika Väyrynen. The 27 year old midfielder who has been previously linked with Glasgow Rangers is looking to move and is keen to join an English club.
  To the guy with the Bobo Balde story. What are you on? His contract is up in the Summer and do you think someone else will hand him another 30K a week deal?? The guy makes more mistakes that Boruc.

A said previously not much dealing going on at Celtic but expect a deadline day swoop to bring Zaluska in for a nominal fee.

I would expect to see Boyd and Ferguson leave Rangers as they are replaceable.

Saviola loan
Bocchetti loan.

confirmed in 24 hours
  Stephan appiah 2 celtic FACT
  The teesiders are involved in a swap deal involving Mido and portugese international Nuno Gomes, the move is to be orchestrated by yet to be confirmed new boro sporting director Eusebio.

MFC on the up!
  Heard from some credible sources that Aston Villa are interested in buying Rafael Carioca and Dani Guiza.
  To the guy who said he spoke to bobo balde about playing in the summer and how roy keane might replace strachan at celtic, i heard over the christmas peroid that roy keane had put in a offer for a large farm house in the trossachs (central scotland" called frenich farm, and i myself even thought roy keane could be heading for celtic. i live in the trossachs and i am a leicester fan, i couldnt care less for the old firm
  Who ever made this claim:
Glen johnson 10m (release clause in his new contract. . don't make me laugh! Ridiculous rumour, where did you get that information from?
Pompey are definately set to sign 2 players this week, thought to be Edu on loan and Fernandes for £6million from Valencia. It's though that there could be 5 new faces in by the end of the week though with bids set to made for either Javier Saviola (loan) or Edin Dzeko (£5million)and Gary O'Neil (£5.5million) and possible Michael Johnson (believed to be between £3–6million) who looks like he might be out of favour with Hughes. After the departure of Sven, his form has certainly dropped and could look for regular first team football.
Benjani has been ruled out by Adams.
  Leroy Lita has been spotted at shirecliffe (sheffield united training ground) hoping to complete a 500k move from reading during the next couple of days.
Kevin Blackwell is also considering placing a bid for fan favourite Michael Brown on a loan deal until the end of the season.
Billy Sharp to pigs is a load of rubbish he is going nowhere.
Also there may be a bid for manchester Citys left out midfielder Michael Johnson. He will be recieving first team football at bramall lane and the bid will be between £2– £4m
  Norwich City News – Glen Roeder is mulling a GBP500K move for Histons Danny Wright.

Also on the way In on short term deals are:–

Raymundo Parlour.

Croft Sheff Utd GBP750k
Doherty – Histon – Free
  Celtic Rumours
This was taking from the BBC. . . .
Celtic meanwhile, are said to be chasing £3m–rated Croatian midfielder Anas Sharbini.
The NK Rijeka player is a regular under–21 international and has scored 16 goals in 52 appearances for the Dalmatian club.
Dynamo Kyiv failed in a £4m bid for the player last season, but Rijeka look set to drop their asking price as Sharbini wants to leave.
Dont know if any truth but its a rumour!!!!

Dont expect too much cash to be spent in the SPL, only Celtic have money just now and we won't spend too much in this window, another young player from Barcalona will join, hopefully McCarthy from Hamilton and expect a bid for Fletcher at Hibs.

Rangers will sell 2 or 3 first teams "stars" to try and ease their cash problems and maybe bring in 2 loans signings

  Sheffield united have had a seven figure bid accepted for leroy lita
  Jermaine Beckford to hand in transfer request. . . Leeds stalling on his move to Leicester City for 800,000
  Why the hell is everyone going on about which "midfielders" my beloved Toffees are going to "buy"???????????? We are pretty skint, as are most clubs in the Premiership, with the exception of those who have sold out to foreign investors (of course if it happened to us, I may well change my tune). Big Dave has already said he`ll only go for loan signings and not be buying. As for midfielders, well, we are pretty stacked in that department, with a few excellent youth prospects coming through too like Rodwell and Gosling. Its strikers we require, and with Mutu crocked for a month or two, not much chance of Pazzini joining us. Rumours of D.Bent may gather some speed as he`s reportedly fallen out with `arry! As for Lescott leaving, well who knows. I doubt it though, especially to City. He doesn't come accross as a "payday" player. As for Arteta, well, no chance, and if Zenit want 20 million for Arshavin, then Arteta, with his years of prem experience, must be worth a bit more, but he`s publicly stated he doesn`t want to go anywhere else. So who`s coming in? I couldnt give a monkey`s fart. Our squad is capable of challenging the top four. Villa are yet to have their seasonal blip while we`ve had ours and are still in 6th. Only one way now and that`s up. Come on

Joe Mattock is off to Wolves for 1.5 million + Mark Davies Leicester will replace Mattock with the signing of MK Dons Dean Lewington for 450,000

Leicester did enquire for Beckford but havent got permission to talk to the player yet! Watch this space.

If Beckford doesn't join Danny Graham may do.

Alexsander Tunchev is happy at the club
  Chelsea will sack Scolari this week. They will then sign Gus Hiddink and andrei Arshavin to the club the main reason why arshavin is stalling on a deal with Arsenal.
  Rangers ins and outs

vellicka on loan to hearts part of driver deal

smith from motherwell
chris eagles
  Hull are set to sign Boa Morte (West Ham), Kilbane (Wigan) and Pericard (Stoke)
  Don't be surprised if Joey Barton ends up at White Heart Lane. Old 'arry tried to sign him for Portsmouth and he seems to fit Harry's requirments of people that will scrap for results. Also it looks like he'll be sold fairly cheaply.
  Arsenal will sure up their midfield as a deal for Arshavin may go on the back–burner, considering that Zenit have earnt a reputation as being "difficult" to deal with. Wenger's primary targets to solidify the midfield are Spanish Euro 2008 standout Marcos Senna and Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure. Moreover Arsenal also are still keeping an eye on long–term on/off target, Fiorentina goalkeeper Sebastien Frey. Wenger will also be looking for a central defender with targets such as Philipe Mexes from Roma, Manuel Da Costa from Fiorentina, Mobido Diakite from Lazio and Angelo Ogbonna from Torino. Wenger may take his attentions off Arshavin and offer a lifeline to Milan youngster and previous target Yoan Gourcuff, who is on loan at Bordeaux, and is unsettled by the current situation.
  First off. .It's obvious these Liverpool supporters drank the kool–aid. Someone's gonna pay 25 mil for Robbie Keane? Just because you paid twice what he's worth doesn't mean anyone else is going to. And Aguero for 25mil? Maybe, cept they already rejected a much larger offer.

Man Utd will NOT be selling Cristiano Ronaldo. This has been made clear by SAF and the board numerous times, and the stories coming out of Spain, unfortunately are only the tip of the iceberg and will be more common than even last summer. This is due to the ridiculous nature of Madrid's administration and their elections that will force atleast two, and likely more, candidates to consistently tap up players from around the prem in order to convince the fans to vote for them. Enjoy the Ronaldo rumors now pool and gunners supporters, bc real soon it is going to be Torres and Cesc being named as campaign promises.

Tevez, while a very very good player, will be allowed to leave. He would be a great buy at 20mil, but at 32 its just too much. Especially when Fergie clearly wants Benzema and can get him for 35mil. Essentially, Fergie can get a younger player who isn't so similar to rooney, and do so for only 3mil more. . In addition, expect players like Possebon, Gibson, Cleverly, Wellbeck, Manucho, etc will be considered for loan deals, but to Prem squads only. And not all of them, but 2–3 atleast.
  I was at a works function Friday night in fareham and the Man City squad was staying there and I spoke with SWP who said he would be at Spurs during the summer. also going, he said via England training, would be Downing, Johnson & Upson. All over the summer.
  Avram Grant for next Arsenal Manager. U heard it from me first. Grant will return to the premiership with Wenger a fan of grant he will propose to the board that grant will be he`s replacement.

Real Madrid to get Ronaldo from Man utd in the summer is a done deal.

Real Madrid to appoint Arsene Wenger. Expect Wenger to call it quits at the end of the season. 11 years and he has taken the club as far as he can. he will suggest to the arsenal board Avram Grant to replace him.
  Bolton Wanderers are now in talks with Kieren Richardson. A fee has almost been agreed with Sunderland and he was spotted going into the reebok stadium hotel late last night. Richardson is keen on a move back to North West and it should be sealed by Friday.

The biggest surprise at Bolton will be that record signing Johannn Elmander will be going back his former club , Nantes. Elmander is reportedly homesick and Megson is also concerned by his fitness and is therefore likely to accept a cut price £3 million.

Bolton are then likely to turn their attentions to Darren Bent and give him a chance to ressurect his career at the Reebok. Bolton reportedly got quoted £8 million when enquiring about Bent at the beginning of the month but with the signing of Defoe, Spurs are now willing to listen to offers of around £5 million.

Megson has also agreed to let Ricardo Vaz Te hold talks with Portugese side , Akademica
