Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

The top class spanish winger that LFC will sing is not spanish, he is Dutch and its Royston Drenthe from madrid the fee is about £7 million but real madrid will get the first option on Alonso
  To the person who said "Jorg albertz spotted leaving murray park also spotted was peter lovenkrands,these could be rangers latest signings." – so was big foot and a pixie.

Albertz was no where near murray park, nor was lovenkrands who is still lost in that hospital since having his imaginary medical.

Kaka thought about joining the mighty gers, he said he will think about it.

Also already signed – Davis and Edu, Bascano is still on the radar to sign, just waiting word back.

  To the guy who said "Arsenal will sign the following stars. David Villa in for 22 million, while Silva follows for 12 million. Ramos will sign for 20 million while, Barry moves for 15 million. Out at Arsenal is no one!True story! Watch"

there is no way that would happen silva just signed a NEW FOUR year deal and a 20mil pound bid by man u REJECTED, villa wont accept 15mil they want 18mil, david villa is staying in spain either with real, barca or most likely valencia and real madrid would not let ramos go unless a 35 MILLION pound bid is placed (clause)

Joe cole to sign for liverpool NOT west ham for 21mil.
Berba to Man utd 28mil
Chelsea to sign robinho for 30mil(reason for coles departure)
and Arsenal to sign couple of youngsters for the midfield + a central defender ???

1 Manchester United
2 Liverpool
3 Chelsea
4 Arsenal

So please people keep it real and dont send in your WISHLISTS.

and some of the rangers fans on here gotta waken up, who the hell said they saw seedorf and gattuso at glasgow airport , thats some ridiculous rumour thast it

peachey bhoy (4 in aa row)
  moyes to bring in mbia from rennes and alan smith from newcastle
  Buzz in Toronto is that Rangers are about to sign MLS player Maurice Edu pending approval of work permit. Edu never returned to training after USA elimination from Olympics, and Toronto are reported to have already signed his replacement from Fulham.
He's a midfielder who can also play in central defence.
Recommended to Smith by Mo Johnson the Toronto coach.
  Ibrahim Afellay will sign a four year contract with liverpool on wednesday. The young PSV star will cost 10million.

Barry will stay put at aston villa. Im not an LFC fan but I think Alonso is just as good as barry, if not better.

Dean Ashton will sign for Newcastle for 12million. A deal will be finalised soon.

London Donavan will join stoke on a seasons long loan from LA galaxy.

Victor Moses has agreed terms with west ham. A deal looks likely to go through.
  It is true that Beckham will go to Nocastle and not everton or spurs . truth is he would`nt get into the spurs squad let alone the spurs team. He knows how bad Keegans team is and how great he would look in it. 100% true.
  Rangers FC. With Mendes signed from Portsmouth, it appears that they are also about to sign Edu from the US and Bresciano from Palermo. Likely to go back in form Steven Davis from Fulham. All of this would add a further £13m or so to the spending spree, with Miller, Lafferty and Velickia already signed.
  Hi all

rangers:edu(mo) $5 million dollers done deal work permit needed but has played 75% for america and will be granted on tuesday 19th august .strange one this signing as he is the new face of fifa 09 in america

rangers:S.davis £2.5 million deal from fulham will be done this weekend as i believe fulham want to sign rangers other target Mark Bresciano from Palermo

celtic:loovens had a medical yesterday ross hall hospital deal done on monday

celtic:Shaun Maloney deal to be done thursday 21st aug Launch Day of the new celtic kit
  I realy enjoy reading this site but so people are just slightly outside reality, for example rumours such as – while Silva follows for 12 million. Ramos will sign for 20 million while, Barry moves for 15 million.– need to have their head checked. If Valencia turned down 25 mill from Utd for Silva, Real turned down 50 mill for Ramos and Villa turn down 16mill for barry why would they take half less money from Arsenal?
Also Where is the big book of best friends people seem to have as I read rumours saying Aguero is coming to utd because Tevez is his best friend – why because he is Argentinian. I'm English but that doesn't make Gerrard my best mate does it!!!
Also I and I imagine most of the readers don't care who is bigger Spurs/Everton/Newcastle/Jossies Giants if you'd all like to meet up get them out and compare size then the argument will be settled once and for all.
Finally I loved all the rumours saying we'll get 4 mill for Mellberg/Kewell/Flamini etc when they have signed bosman deals keep them coming as they make me laugh the most.

Keep posting people.
  Plenty of rumours in the press connecting Liverpool to an unnamed Spanish winger to solve the reds' problem on the left. The winger bit is true. Spain is also involved. The winger though is Dutch. Liverpool will sign none other than Royston Drenthe on a season's loan from Real Madrid within the next 7 days, with a view to buying in the future. Drenthe is not settled at Madrid and both Kuyt and Babel (who is a mate of fellow U21 colleague Drenthe) have recommended him highly to cash–strapped Rafa. Taking Drenthe on loan means Rafa still retains what's left of his war chest to continue persuing a now slightly devalued Barry (because he's cup–tied). Drenthe, like most Dutch people, also speaks fluent English. Which is more than can be said about McClaren.
  To all plymouth fans who come on here sayin u r signin glenn whelan from stoke! think again. He is a class act and will be important in stokes premier leaague survival. Stoke to complete the signings of the faye's. abdoulaye from castle and amdy from charlton. Alos joe ledley to join from cardiff and 2 other players/ jylod samuel likely. richard dunne not cumming.
  Newcastle will sign 3 more players

lb stephen warnock 4m

tiago on loan

dean asthon 12m
  Have it on good authority that Andy webster will sign for Motherwell within 36hrs.( May feature on Sat if/or at least be paraded now that hes fit). Rangers have decided thast he is surplus to requiremnets & would rather go with the old gaurd.

Pays Your Wages (STEVE)!!!!
  Joe cole was at villas boddymoor heath training ground today
  I've herd from a relable sorse at the club that king kev will bring in beckham from la galaxy and wes brown from man utd, and that owen will stay becos he wants to stay at a realy big club rather that go to everton or spurs, who hav offers on the table for him. we will be back in the top 6 this yere wehre we deserve we are one of the biggest clubs in the world FACT.
  Rangers are poised to snatch Bresciano from a host of English clubs as well as tie up a deal for Edu (Maurice) pending work permit
  Owen out till Xmas, it'll soon be revealed he needs a small op. Toon are panicking a little as they're having problems with the striker they're after. I don't know who it is but the club selling are messing them around. Chopra may return as a panic buy if still available.
  Jorg albertz spotted leaving murray park also spotted was peter lovenkrands,these could be rangers latest signings.

another player seen at rangers was larrson (seb) not henrik so calm down all you bears
  Davis move to Rangers off as Fulham looking for £6–£8m.
expect bresciano to sign for 4m
and berra for 1.5m
  Yeah rangers to sign 22 year old USA player Maurice Edu think he is a midfielder
  Liverpool will break off negotiations with Aston Villa skipper and instead will move for PSV starlet Ibrahim Afellay for a fee off £11m.
Afellay is a player how can play as a central midfielder and most notably on the wings which is the same versatility as Gareth Barry.

Aston Villa having managed to keep hold of Barry, will offload keeper Stuart Taylor to Middlesborough for a season long loan with view for a £3m permanent move.

Newcastle will sign Stephen Appiah for a fee of £9m and Liverpool starlet Emiliano Insua on a season long loan. Alan Smith will complete a move to Everton for £4m and Shola Ameobi will stay for at least until January.

West Ham will sell keeper James Walker to Peterborough in exchange for promising keeper Joe Lewis for £3m and Andrew Taylor of Middlesborough for £3m.
  The barry deal wont happen 1) Villa would lose face if they excepted less, and would be seen as pushovers by other clubs, 2) Liverpool would lose face if they paid 18m, and Then all clubs would inflate there price on there players, so stalmate!. Barry will not be allowed to leave in jan as that would have an effect on Villas season. Come next summer he will have 1 year left on this contract, and i would be surprised if Villa dont make him see it out, He could buy out his contract, but to do that you have to give 12months notice (which he has not done yet, as he would lose his bonus), and tha contract has to be paid by the player up front, he is not allowed to discuss terms with other teams untill hes a free agent, and the biggest thing in the ruling is that a player can only buy out his contract if he moves to a club in another country, (look up the rules if you dont believe me). As aston Villa have a bit of money he is worth keeping even if he leaves on a free after two years. So, after all thats been said between the two clubs and there fans, he will be 30+ by the time liverpool get him, and then who cares!!! signed a honest shrewsbury town fan
  Rumour on the street is that Sunderland have a multi million pound bid in for. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . David Beckham. My cousin lives in LA and the talk over there seems the same.
  Forest fans do not give up on Marlon Harewood returning to the City Ground on loan, talks are ongoing.The sticking point is the fee involved.

Unusually for me, some non forest news!! Berbatov will sign for Ytd for 28 million over this weekend.

Dan the very Main Man
  Arsenal will sign the following stars. David Villa in for 22 million, while Silva follows for 12 million. Ramos will sign for 20 million while, Barry moves for 15 million. Out at Arsenal is no one!

  Edu from usa £2.5million
davis £2.5 million (personel terms)
to rangers no offer on cards for mcfadden also heard that darren fletcher is a possible loan deal if fergie can get another player added to his squad
  Manchester United will move to buy two strikers before the window closes. ManU will buy Victor Obinna from Chievo Verona and will beat Barcelona to sign Berbatov. Tottenham will use the cash from the Berbatov transfer to purchase of Andrei Arshavin. Tottenham might also try to sign Hernan Crespo on loan from Inter. Sunderland will make an audacious bid for Darren Bent. If that fails then they will bid for Benni McCarthey. Liverpool will finalise the signing of Jakub Blazszcykowski from Borussia Dortmund.
  Walter smith will sign BOTH Berra and Reynolds as well as Mendes (done), Edu and Breshiano (spelling!)
Fees are;
Berra– 1.82m+ Broadfoot
Reynolds– 1.75+ Webster(loan)
Alan Gow may be used in either deal to knock the price down.
Edu will be moving for around 2.5 million
Breshiano will be coming for between 4 and 5 million pounds.
Darcheville will be kept as an impact sub cousin will go though.
