just want to point out to all scousers living in fairyland that until liverpool get investment from DIC, they will hav limited money supplies. and don't expect to see DIC invest until liverpool win the prem, which is yet to be seen. all they can hope for in january are players yet to be at big clubs:

Ibisevic + Carlos Eduardo (hoffenheim – 12mil for 1)
Pino (Monaco – 4 mil)
only big signings will be from benfica, possible loan–permanant deals for Angel Di Maria and Carlos Martins

as for those big players like David Villa, Aguero, David Silva and Zarate. liverpool have no chance except maybe with Aguero, though he is more likely to join inter milan. Villa to join Arsenal or M. City. Silva to join Barca, R.Madrid, M.City or maybe even AC Milan. finally, Zarate will only go to Chelsea or R.Madrd because he believes they willl furter his career.

  I am a rangers season ticket holder and there is more chance than wee Chesney becoming our new manager than Arshavin siging for Rangers . Murray won't spend any more money as he is desperate to sell rangers so unless the sale is going through before jan and someone is putting in big money then there is no chance ! As for kuyt being a swap for mcgready or someone paying 4 million for dudnati and 2 million for killen get a grip stop taking the drugs !

rangers ins outs Bougerra Marslies
Tonel 2.5 5.5
Berra 2.5 Adam and burke
lovenkrands 0.5 Forest 1 million
  I have been told from the same person that told me that Kenny miller left sellik that he would be coming to rangers the next year that Bougerra will be going to marsilles for 5.5 million Burke and Adam will be going to forrest for 1 million Hemdani will leave on a free transfer as his contract is nearly up. daily will go back to England Beasley is going to spain several teams want him for around 1.5 Stevie Smith is being allowed to leave for free as he has no bottle for tackles etc to scared of being injured . We will make up for it by buying Berra for 2.5 Tonel for 2.5 Lovenkrands for 500'000 and Driver for 2 million Romanov will have no option because they will be in liquidation Due his banks financal problems !

  Arsenal Rumours

If Gallas does leave in January, he will be replaced by one of Matthew Upson (likely, as Wenger is a huge fan of his former player and West Ham need to sell), Hangeland (I wouldn't agree with but could be a success) or Philipe Mexes (constantly being linked with Arsenal and has plenty of top level experience). Gallas would leave for around 5 mil to one of Milan and Juve. Yaya Toure could still happen but if not possibly Xabi Alonso in the summer. I have also read that we are interested in Alexandre Pato of Milan (could be involved in part of Gallas swap deal if he goes to Milan). Senderos could be sold permenantly to Milan, as we now have Silvestre and Djourou providing good cover for Toure and Gallas. Armand Traore will return in the summer from loan. Players like Fran Merida, Jay Simpson and Gavin Hoyte will go out on loan in January and the summer, not Jack Wilshere as Wenger believs he is too young to be loaned at the moment.

This is all reliable information,
  Some rumours

riise to newcastle – 3m
gallas to sevilla/roma 4m
jo to everton – loan
dindane to hull – 5m
owen to everton 2m
robbie keane to spurs/arsenal – 12m
oneil to pompey – 2m
hangaland to man city – 10m
a young to mancity/spurs – 15m
downing to spurs – 8m
tuncay to chelsea – 6m
heskey to chelsea/liverpool – 9 – 11m
fanni to everton 2m
gomes to juventus – 6.5m

you heard it here 1st !!!!!!
thanks 4 reading
  Arsene wants to rebuild as much of his squad for next season so they have the rest of this season to gel.
Joe Hart will sign from city who will kick up a stink to leave after Buffon is signed.
Gallas will be kept until the end of the season at least however a center back will be signed, a tall power house, one of Thiago Silva, Mexes, Zapata or Alex.
A back–up right back will beb signed with kyle mcnaughton the most likely signing.
In midfield a partrner for fabregas will be signed with Barry or alonso, Barry will sign in janurary because he knows that he and fabregas will get arsenal to the champions league easily while staying at villa is a long shot to get into the champions league.
Barry may be joined by his villa team mate and lifelong fan ashley Young, however if this is to happen it won't go through until the summer, the alternative is out of favour man city midfielder Elano.
The replacement for Bendtner will be around 26, from europe.
  Heard on good authority that the Bellamy rumour is true he will join celtic for 5 million
Celtic will also sign Nial mcginn for 200 000 and expect sylvinho from barca and a Premiership star from the big 4 on loan til the end of the season. mcgeady will leave in january or summer as he doesn't want to be here.Balde will eventually give in and go to MLS.

WEbster and Hemdani will leave Rangers but the Arshavin Rumour is laughable. expect lovenkrands' ugly mug to appear at ibrox though.


Adams will not be selling many players in january, perhaps 1 or 2 to get cash flowing in and out. I cant belive that people on this site think that johnson, crouch, defoe, diarra will all be leaving because that's basically our team.

Adams will most likely be seeling his players who don't usually make it to the first team like: lauren, Hreidarsson, D. Traore and possibly Nugent and Utaka.

Utaka is possibly the most likey gaining interest from various teams like Everton, Aston Villa, West Ham and Hull City. For possibly aroound £7–9 million.

Nugent has similar interest from similar teams but also interest from manchester united and arsenal who have been keeping an eye on him in recent games he has played.

Surrounding the speculation from redknapp (the betrayer!) with him thinking of raiding pompey of our bigest players like. James, Distin, Johnson, Kranjcar, Diarra, Defoe and Crouch. This is absolute rubbish! all these players are staying put.

Adams is lining up bids for new players, preferably midfielders wingers/centre. The players catching the eye of Adams are:

Shaun Wright–Phillips – £7 million
Aaron Lennon – £5 million
Theo Wallcot – £6 million
Jermaine Pennant – £4 million

Lots of speculation surrounding of the club up for sale, the club is for sale following Gaydamak hasnt had the time or effort to put what the club actually deserves.

There has been interest from a South African Consortium and Ukranian and German Billionaires (annonymous) who have been intersted in the club for some time. However Gaydamak will not let the club slip into the hands for a ridiculous money, he dosent want to get rid of us that quikly! hes looking for the right buyer who will put everything to the clubs future.

This is pure genuine truth!
  I would like to second that Aiden Mcgeagy will move to Bayern Munich in january. My source who is the head of sport science at Celtic beleives it will cost Bayern around 6million.

Also, Rangers will enquire about the Andrei Arshavin. David Murray is trying to win back the respect from the Rangers fans by bringing in a big name.Arshavin's value is decreasing quickly due to his unhappiness at zenit and poor performances since the world cup
  Man city are looking to bring in a tone of pure class players this is a list of who they are looking for.

rud van nistelrooy
ronaldo(man u)
they are also looking into joining the race with arsenal to sign west hams matthew upson
  Rangers will sell Hemdani, Adam, JCD, Burke, Bougherra and Smith and will bring in Dean Shiels–Hibs £600,000 Andrew Driver– Hearts £2 million Tonel– Sporting Lisbon £3 million. From ReliableRanger
  Conversation overheard at the JJB Satdium during Saturday's game v. Blackburn.
Michael Owen will be coming to Wigan Athletic in the January transfer window, with Emile Heskey signing a new contract, keeping him at Latics, with his old mucker.
Wigan's current wage structure goes out of the window, but both Dave Whelan and Steve Bruce consider this piece of business to be essential for the continued growth of Latics.

Zaki staying until end of season. . .

You heard it first here.
  Newcastle United is preparing a bid for Erik Huseklepp in january. Huseklepp plays for SK Brann Bergen and is one of Norways most wanted attacking midfielders (left). He can also play as striker. SK Brann is asking 1,6 million £ for the player. My source works for Brann.
  Hearts will announce in a few weeks the shock news that Vladamir Romanov has sold the club, to an as yet unamaed investor.

All sorts of rumours have been in existence about unpaid bills and even administration but this will not happen. Hearts have agreed payment plans with many creditors, and this is why. The new owner has vowed to pay off any debt once he has taken over. This is also why Hearts have said there will be no fire sale of players and it is this deal that Director, Campbell Ogilvie was referring to in a recent interview with the Scotsman newspaper.
  Some of the stuff on here it total class!!!!!

Arshavin to rangers!!!!! is that Tommy Arshavin from Dundee your talking about?????
Rangers are looking to sell about 6–10 players before they can buy. They will only be bringing in loans signings in this window.

Celtic will spend just enough to ensure that the title is won again £4–5M will see 3 new signings, left back, striker and A.N Other. Celtic have made approx£15M from the champions leagues and know that they can afford to spend again. With a club depbt of only £3M, wee gordon doesn't need to sell anyone before he buys, unlike walter smith as rangers have debts of £60M (hidden in MIH, hence the reason Murray hasnt been able to sell the club,well he's only be looking to sell for 3 years!!!)

Hearts will have a fire sale with any decent offer accepted on all players due to money worries at the club, they need to sell a few players just to stay afloat.

Celtic will bring in Nial Quinn from Derry City, but expect another 3 "first team" signings.
  Hearts FC

Hearts are in negotiations with Ajax about taking striker Edgar Manucharyan on loan until the end of the season. Manucharyan was told in the summer that he can leave.
  Rangers Transfers

Only 2 players are being looked at this January. Tonel for 2m from Sporting and Arshavin. When i heard this i thought it was a joke but it turns out Rangers had scouts at the Real Zenit Game.

Smith, Hemdani, JC Darcheville, Beasly, Dailly, Adam, Burke are all expected to leave
  News from the Scottish capital sides

Contrary to rumours Hearts are not near administration and short term money difficulties will be eased in the new year ,With money from Gonsalves sale and larry kingston will move south.
Makela released as will a few younger players.
Michael Stewart may also be set to go.
The Manager will be allowed to renew Auguir's contract and sign up to 3 new players .

over at hibs ,Fletcher will move on to celtic and Dean Sheils to west brom ,fletcher maybe replaced by Billy Mehmet of st mirren.
  1. It doesn't matter if Rangers can or can't afford Arshavin, he won't be going to Scotland. He was only interested in a move to a PL Big 4 or to one of the rest of Europes elite in the summer. With Ramos at Real a move there in January is more likely than anything else.

2. Jonny Evans will also not be going anywhere on loan, he's already got about 10 games this season and is probably now seen as first choice behind Rio and Vidic so SAF will not be letting him out on loan.

3. Spurs won't be able to sign Sergio Aguero (spelling), simple as that.

4. If Ashley Young has argued with the Villa chairman and is up for sale then I doubt he'd go to Spurs either because all of the big 4 would be seriously interested + City.
  Kenwyne Jones to Villa for around 9 million. Dwight Yorke involved.FACT.
