Huddersfield Town are looking at Preston North End goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann.

I heard exactly the same thing from a mate who plays for the 1st year Youth squad (but not what club) Stuckmann has already had a bid by a Championship club (that must be Huddersfield)...cant see him staying now as Westley will no doubt drop him again.

The S*n is reporting that Brighton are after Manchester United Striker Federico Macheda on loan until the end of the season. {Ed003's Note - His agent said the other day they were talking to clubs in Spain and Germany}

Poyet should get him he's a brilliant player



16 Dec 2012 18:23:52
Brighton to sign Billy Sharp in January after completing his loan deal with Nottingham Forest.

Forest have supposedly got an agreement already in place with Southampton for Sharp.

So unless Southampton, Sharp or Forest pull out of that agreement he wont be going to Brighton!

Nice try!

Not true Poyet has said he is not what we are looking for

Cant see sharp going maybe camp or cox

Billy sharp want to stay at forest

There are only 2 options that could happen...1. He returns to Southampton 2. He moves to Forest Permanently. He will not be going anywhere else.

We (Forest) have him for the season. If any deal is going to happen it'll be us signing him for 2-2.5m

He is on a season only loan......poor effort, but feel free to try again

Preston boss Graham Westley is looking to add to his squad in the January transfer window. Westley is trying to sign Peter Vincenti from Aldershot, Peter Winn from Macclesfield, Stacy Long from AFC Wimbledon and Yemi Odubade from Gateshead. All four players previously played under Westley at Stevenage.

No he's not. PNE have no money and could not afford players of this stature wages. Ex- Stevenage or not

Preston have got money but hemmings wont spend on carp signing like former managers of pne

He can have stacy long, we have toks

Its midson that gw is after in jan and griffths

middlesbrough are massive front runners in the chase to sign stewert downing from Liverpool ahead of the likes of QPR and West Ham United as he wants a return to teesside he has confirmed this to friends and family back in middlesbrough

A loan in January is likely with a £4 million permanant move in the pipeline if the club are promoted back to the premiership at the end of the season

I can't understand why any club would want him he's rubbish do these managers and coaches watch these players.

I have been told that deals are in place for, downing and Frazier Campbell on loan with few to buy. And free transfer of Nigel reo coka. Bailey, Thompson, McManus, McDonald all off in January

Great signing for the boro if this can come through, will give the side a boost again for promotion push, big threat to other clubs with him on our side, good luck to Mowbray to get him here! C'mon stewy come home!

He would rip the championship to shreds

Wages could be an issue though

will join watford and make there loans permant once the january transfer window has opened

Surprised Anya signing. Much better out there

Good luck fielding 5 english players by law!

That us fantastic news for watford. Maybe a couple if extra new faces in January too and the push for the play offs is a real possibility. :)

Not anya i hope he is poor but the rest good but should get estrand 42 he is on a loan to buy if we want i hope so

Not surprised about first 4 but i havent seen the best of anya and bottochio looks a good player

I love Anya but just wish he would dribble at players more, he's probably the fastest player in the league

Anya is playing well at the minute. He didn't seem good at first but has been improving



16 Dec 2012 11:52:40

The Charlton manager will also try to make Rob Hulse and Dan Seaborne's loans into permanent deals and bring in Anthony Wordsworth from Colchester.

Leaving the Valley will be Bradley Wright Phillips to join his father at MK Dons ,Leon Clarke and Danny Hollands to Brentford,

Joe Cole,Doni and Stewart Downing are nailed on to leave Anfield this January. Daniel Sturridge is set to complete a £12m move to Anfield in the opening days of the January transfer window while Liverpool are also planning a move for Theo Walcott.



16 Dec 2012 10:29:15
Surprising story coming from White Heart Lane... Tottenham to offer Aston Villa £5m for striker Andreas Weimann.

I'm more concerned about what rumours are coming from White Hart Lane

5m? Dream on! add a 2 infront of that 5 & we'll have a deal at 25m!

In your dreams! Andi is worth more than 5m!




16 Dec 2012 09:47:32
West Brom to sign Carlton Cole; Steve Clarke good friends with him from his days at Chelsea

West brom already have 5 strikers, they only play with one, no chance of this happening



16 Dec 2012 07:35:18
Aston Villa interesting in PSV Eindhoven half-back Stanislav Manolev {Ed002's Note -



16 Dec 2012 06:09:52
CRYSTAL Palace are currently planning on negotiations with striker Dwight Gayle. Gayle, 22, is on loan to Peterborough United and returns to parent club in January. Dagenham & Redbridge are open to talks to the starlet who has scored 4 in 5 for the Posh, who would go straight into the Eagles side for departure of Dikgacoi who goes to the ACON

Sorry me old duck its going to be a dwight xmas deal already done .Mr Fry got in there first miles ahead of you boys.



16 Dec 2012 04:20:05
Gary Hooper to West Ham for 7m + add ons - deal agreed yesterday between clubs

Why would a club agree a deal to sell a player, below their valuation, BEFORE the transfer window opened?? Fantasy.

Deals can be agreed anytime, just can't be singed or registered untill transfer window opens!
Hopefully he stays longer, not goin to get near 10mil so 7 plus add ons could be enough.?



16 Dec 2012 02:38:40
Swansea City will make a bid in January
for Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor in an
attempt to find a proven goal scorer.

The longest staying Villa player who supports Villa & has started almost every game when fit this season.
Gabby is going no-where! You can have Bent if you have a spare 12m!

Since when has he been a proven goalscorer!!? personally would rather Bent as you know he'll score given the right service - 12mill too much but 6Mill would be a bargin

Keep both please. They not the best and wouldn't get in our team with the style we play.

Heskey is a more proven goal scorer than agbonlahor



16 Dec 2012 00:02:21
Villa set to sign Championship due Will Hughes of Derby and Charlie Austin to replace Bent who is on hi way to QPR and Delph who is heading back to Leeds.

Will Hughes and Derby County want him to stay as they know he will play 40 odd games a season and progress better with first team football. However there will be so many bids from the premier league in January, rumours say DCFC will accept 4 million but that is papers talk and if that was the case i think there would be protests from Derby fans. He is rated already as the best player the academy has produced, Tom Huddlestone wasnt sold for enough money but i doubt that will happen in January, this time round. 7-8 million would be accepted i believe.

Bates has said that Leeds will attempt to capture the permanent signings of the loanees and an additional striker due to Somma's aggravated injury! Last time I checked Delphi wasn't a striker

I was at the away game at bristol city the new ceo for the rams sam rush was mixing in with the away support dishing out signed xmas cards from cloughie and the players and he stated that will hughes will not be leaving the club in january, but that doesnt mean he could still go in the summer



15 Dec 2012 23:39:38
Derby County's youngster, Will Hughes, is a target for Aston Villa, after his recent performances for his current side.

I've watched Hughes this season, would be a good addition to Westwood & Bannan in midfield!

16 Dec 2012 16:39:44
Have Villa got 12 million Hughes is worth that! not in Villa's league will go to a top 3 club

You derby fans don't understand football do you, the second a young player knows he has the chance to play for a premiership club, he'll do everything in his power to go. Also, it wasn't long ago since you was all saying Jason shackell was going nowhere but that happened at alot under the rams fans valuation, stop thinking your a big club than can reject decent offers for any of your players, 12million could by your whole team and if 4million is offered for hughes, he will be going!!

Off all the clubs after Will Hughes i don't think he'll be choosing Aston Villa.

12m! That's pretty funny. The kids barely worth 1m now, the majority of any potential deal would be taken up by future payments based on appearances (which is no guarantee they'll ever be paid).

The transfer market has changed and clubs outside of the Prem can't hold out for stupid transfer fees

Will Hughes is a big part of what the board and Nigel Clough are trying to do at the club, and that's make a squad which mainly consists of players brought through the youth system. Plus Hughesy has only recently signed a new two year contract, so it will take a big offer (8-10 million) for us to consider selling.

8-10m, you are deluded. Zaha could just aboyt command that fee and he's played over 100 games at this level. Hughes gets a handful of appearances and is suddenly worth that much? Sort it out!

Derby, like any club their size, will bring kids through the youth system in order to SELL them. The same goes with the lower division players they sign - bring them in, build 'em up, sell them on at a profit if possible.



15 Dec 2012 23:38:20
Burnley's Charlie Austin is a transfer target for Paul Lambert's Aston Villa.

Benteke,Weimann,Agbonlahor,Bent (+ Fonz & Bowery) do we need ANOTHER striker?
Would love to have Austin but unless we offload Bent , I can not see it!


And about 15 other clubs are after him....
