  Inside news from villa park, distin and campbell from pompey joining as squad players and knight plus 8million going to bolton for cahill.

UTV
  Villa park latest. . . .

Downing–Boro £12m
Bent – Tottenham £14m
Distan–Pompy £3m
Foster–Man U Loan (World cup year)

  Real Madrid have failed in there bid for alonso although he wanted to move. They will sign:
Madrid wanted villa but he rejected THEM.
They wanted villa,ribery,FABREGAS and maicon but failed.Benzema was their 3rd choice for striker
  Ashley Young IS (sadly)going to join the throngs of rich boys at Man Chitty. The agreed fee is £28m.
I understand that an approach HAS been made for David Beckham, but that discussions are still at an early stage and it is likely to be a short term loan signing to fill a squad gap and provide cover whilst Downing gets up to full fitness. Villa also intend to deal fairly shrewdly (The usual rumoured interests – Delph, Jenas, Huddlestone, etc are fairly accurate though Bentley has more of a question mark now as his demands are thought to have put MON off) but also with the purchase of one "galactico" big name to announce their intention to make significant progress over the next 2 seasons.

What isn't being much reported is that Villa are also bolstering their 16–18 age group significantly this summer by signing some very decent youngsters with whom they can profitably deal or play in 2 seasons time. MON has made some good (and some bad) signings in his time at VP but one thing he consistently gets right is his analysis of a youngsters potential (Ashley Young – potential profit 150%+)

Watch for the name Courtenay Campbell in 2years. .

PS Re the West Ham takeover rumour . . since when has this site sunk to the level of printing the F word in its full and correct format? I was effin shocked and Pin gutted I can tell you.

{editor's note – that was an error – i intended to star it out but got distracted by the phone and forgot all about it – my apologies to all}
Adebayor is set to complete his move to Man City by the end of the week, with Micah Richards potentially being involved in a £20M plus player transfer. Bringing in the defender could make way for Eboue to move to Spain, with Atletico Madrid interested among others.

With Gallas in the final year of his contract, he could be heading back to France with both PSG and Marseille interested. With Chamakh touted as a potential replacement for Adebayor, and also being in the final year of his contract, some form of swap deal with Gallas would be possible, although separate £6–7M moves are far more probable. A move for Huntelaar may be preferable however, althouth his £17M price tag could be enough to put an end to Arsenal's interest.

Wenger may look to Lorik Cana to fill the defensive midfield void, while either Cristian Zapata or Hangeland could be targeted to add height to the backline, with Senderos and Silvestre linked with moves away.

Thus with Zapata/Hangeland, Richards, Cana and Chemakh/Huntelaar potentially joining the club, and Gallas, Senderos, Silvestre, Eboue and Adebayor moving the other way, it could be set to be a very active summer for the gunners.

  Some people are saying that Alonso won't go to Real! He will 100% go Rafa wants to sell him but he is just holding out for the right price and until after the 18th July, so that Real Sociedad will not receive any sell on fee I don't know who replacement will be, Rafa may even use the cash to strengthen another position and use Lucas. I think people are forgeting that at the end of the 07/08 campain Lucas took Alonso's position and Alonso spent a few games on the bench, Lucas as then 3rd choice midf behind Gerrard and Masch. Also please stop linking Ruud Van Nistelrooy to Liverpool he is 33 and is out of action until at least October, just because Owen has gone to Man Utd, it doesn't mean that Rafa has to buy a ex Man Utd player. Just remember we signed Ince did Sir Rednose rush out and but a Liverpool player? I hope that Liverpool now get another decent striker and a versatile winger/AM like Silva. I think then it could be a productive year!
  LFC Rumours

Alonso – Real Madrid; £15m + Wesley Sneijder
Dossena – Juventus; £6m
Voronin – Bundesliga; £2m
Arbeloa – Real Madrid; £6m

David Silva from Valencia; £25m
Marek Hamsik from Napoli; £18m
Wesley Sneijder p/e from Real Madrid
  Being a Villa fan at the moment is both frustrating and concerning as MON seems to be a tad slow in signing qiuality.

Missing the window last January to build on a potential entry in to the top 4, we slide alramingly down the table playing poor, looking poor and without a quality central defender.

It looks like Downing will come on board, a good signing despite being injured but when are we going to address the fact we have lost Barry, Lauren and a keeper and have not replaced any of them. Also we need a top notch striker.

Randy Lerner has pledged money, MON won't spend, but with man City, Spurs etc all spending big and bringing in quality I see us slipping behind and the past 3–years will account for nothing.

Villa need to sign at least 5–players: Right back, Central defence x 2, central midfield x 1, quality forward x 1 . . but who

Right Back – Naughton
Central Defenders – Distin & Fulham Centre half
Central Midfield – Beckham (Captain and bring on English players)
Forward – Tuncay
  Kilmarnock fan here, i've been told by a mate of mine that defender simon ford is set to sign for walsall on a two–year deal!!!!!!!!! i'm disappointed we can't keep our best defenders! :|
  Huntelaar is not signing for Stuttgart and is waiting for Arsenal to complete the sale of Adebayor so they will have the finances in place to sign him. The Stuttgart interest is to hurry Arsenal up as Madrid need the funds quickly for Alonso. Van Persie was only too happy to sign his new contract knowing he would have a top Klaas partner. Gooner4life.
  Interesting news coming out of Italy. . Tottenham Hotspur officials are in Milan looking to tie up deals for not one, but two ex–Arsenal central midfielders: Patrick Vieira could be coming in from Inter on a free, with Jermaine Jenas going the other way on a seasons loan (option to buy, price not agreed). All talk of PV signing a pay–as–you–play deal is nonsense, but he is willing to take a pay cut. Over at AC, Mathieu Flamini is being lined up as a shock target. Spurs want to make a permanent signing for 8–10m, but Milan are only interested in letting him go out on loan.
  Dear god in heaven…unfortunstely hahaha it seems every club has at least one bellend.
I do hope the first part of your rumour is right and the rb problem is sold (or freed elsewhere in his case) with luck the mercenary Neill will be off for good. But as no one is interested in an old, slow overpaid tweed hat, he may just be back, mores the pity.
But yes other options already there in the squad…at worse Faubert. Hopefully rumours of offers on Faubert, Boa Morte and James Collins work in the clubs favour, but as the later two are on stupid money, it may not work out unless the club sell on the cheap? Fingers crossed. .
Ashton is still on the mend, but a big doubt is a bit rich from what I hear. But again Jesus wept, Mark ‘the duck’ Viduka, are you a complete mental…if you put a hundred strikers names in front of Zola, he’d be evens to be 99 at best.
Upson is 50/50 at the moment, all depends on other deals as all would know, but the stupid money offered would be hard to pass on.
Three new deals soon at Upton Park with any luck…but then no deal set in stone with the money grabbers about these days. We’re all mugs, Irons forever…
  Cardiff are reportedly interested in mcsheffrey (birmingham) and hatem trabelsi.

if mcsheffrey signs for the bluebirds it will be as part of a deal that takes mccormack to st. andrews.
  Joe Cole definitely leaving Chelsea, but word is that Liverpool are not the only club he is considering. Man United have also expressed an interest.
  Niak noticed a comment
". .teams joining the big 4"
by the way, ngiak thinks that the big 4 might just be the big 2. .
man c and chelsea
tho even chelsea is selling and only recruiting youth with kenyon leaving!!!
wow. . only the big 1 – man c!!
the other "big 4" man u, ars, pool seem more keen to sell than buy. .
the french guy (teammate of obertan) to man u by 2moro says ngiak
  David beckham is not gonna sign for spurs!!
expect city to wrap up the adebayor deal by the end of the week, but JT won't be leaving chelsea
liverpool will sign obafemi martins and david silva and possibly ruud van nistelrooy
alonso and masch are both staying put
  And this is only a rumour. . John Terry's flight and room for Chelsea's travels tomorrow have been cancelled. Hearsay supplied by person working at Stamford Bridge.
  Barry ferguson from rangers to birmingham, today or tomorrow! 100% – watch this!
  I have it on good authority from one of the Oldham back room staff that we have made a bid for Blackpool striker Danny Nardiello.

We will be selling a few fringe players and have money in the pot to fund it. He says a figure of £150k has been mentioned.

Looked him up, and he seems to be doing well in pre season so far.
  I work within the local press in Watford and we were a Vicarage Road yesterday to meet Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam after he had agreed personal terms with the club after we had a bid accepted to be believed at 500k from Glasgow Rangers.

This will officially be announced today
  The local press have been asked to attend Vicarage Road this afternoon for the unveiling of Charlie Adam as well as another player a striker from Leicester City who played on loan in the championship last season, so DJ Campbell will also be unveiled, we won't know until this afternoon if it is a loan or permanent move for DJ

  Nemanja Matic of MFK Kosice has signed for Chelsea on a four year deal.
Young to sign for 12m plus senderos and diaby.
Huntelaar and auguro are being looked at as replacements for adebayor. Eboue will be used in a makeweight in any possible deal for auguro.
Hangeland is a strong possibility for 12m (City agreed to pull out of the race to sign the norwegian as part of the adebayor deal.)
Arsenal's final move will be for M.Diarra for a fee in the region of 12m
Through the exit door at the emirates will go Eboue (5m/swap), Senderos (swap), Silvestre (0.5m), Gibbs (loan), Diaby (swap), Adebayor (30m)
  I wish people would get their facts right about Chelsea. Once again I will put you straight. For the person who said Chelsea will offer £10million and Joe Cole for Upson. It won’t happen it was stated by Ancelotti at the weekend that Lampard and Cole are the main force of the midfield. Chelsea currently have ten defenders in the squad so we have cover. Also as I have said before Terry will not be going, he will get a contract increase (which is deserved). Alex will be sold to Man City for £9.5 million.

To the person who said we will sign Wheater…. get real, there is far to much talent in our defence to get that half hearted defender in. We will however, sign Adam Johnson for a fee of £7.5 million. Also Ivanovic is staying put, did you see his performance against Liverpool in the CL. That did not go unnoticed and he will sign a contract extension soon. Hilario has just signed a contract extension so he will not be going to QPR. People just need to read a paper or watch sky sports news before coming on here.

Chelsea are building a team for the future as well as competing at the moment. Players like Sturridge, Manccienne (spelling) and Stoch will be in the Chelsea squad and become the backbone of Chelsea in the future. Turnbull is debateable.

Lastly some people are worried about Ancelotti not being able to be fluent in English. Don’t worry Ray ‘Butch’ Wilkins is fluent in Italian and obviously English and that is why he is being kept on as assistant manager.
  Latest news out of anfield !

Liverpool have made a 10million bid testing the water for Hernanes from Sao Paulo's (there prize asset) this would be a fantastic coup as he is arguable one of the best talents in Brazil at the mo – with AC Milan, Barca and Juve all sniffing round – perfect alonso replacement!

Another rumour gathering pace is that Lpool have been really busy in brazil and will also make an offer for UTD target douglas costa – Rafa believes he can snatch both of these talents for around 30 mill – watch this space !

Jake the Snake . .SSSssssss

Adebayor Work permit has been applied by CITY and GRANTED medical and signing will happen Wednesday pm


Lescott & Terry. Still on the cards
  Rangers will this week set the wheels in motion of in the hope of staving off administation and job losses throghout the club.
  According to reports in Spain Glenn Hoddle is returning to manage Notts County.The report said that Hoddle let slip to a reporter in Madrid last week about returning to UK to manage County
  Arsenal News.

With the iminent departure of Adebayor to City have heard a few dealings through various sources that will take place in the coming week. Wengers immediate concern is his DM position and with no1 target Melo off to Juve he has turned his attention to 2 players. Matuidi and Gokhan Inler, either of these will join for fees in the region of 5mil and 8mil respectively. Wenger chased Inler last year so it is more likely for this transfer to occur, however gelson fernandes' transfer to St Ettienne suggests that a cm will depart and therefore matuidi may have a move set up. Nextly Vermalean is a cb/lb and is not going to be first choice, wenger has left the door open that should either Toure or Gallas want a transfer then Micah Richards would be the replacement. Finally is finding a suitable striker to fill ade's goalscoring void. We will not look at a 25mil striker and any deal for Jan Klass Huntelaar looks a day or 2 too late as he is going to Germany. Chamakh is an option but not wengers first choice, Obefami Martins is expected to make te swith for around 8mil, he is a target of wengers and with newcastle in championship martins can be obtained on the cheap. If this fails to materialise there is a possibility that Demba Ba will join from Hoffenheim or even Trezeguet(though this is highly unlikely). There won't be many departures only Traore, senderos and possibly another cb, watch out for interest from Ajax for Bendtner also.
  Just got told Jt will go to city within next week and richard dunne will go to sunderland. JT will become captain straight away and man city will have one last crack in trying to bring another big name i.e rohnaldinho to eastland. you heard it from big bill first;)
  Celtic are looking at Suwon Bluewings for talent from Korea.

Players who sparked their interest were young midfielder Park Hyun Boem, ha tae–goon (striker), and defender yang sang min.

I think these players are a bit like naka – more technically gifted but i think celtic feel because they are young they have a few years to develop
  Xabi Alonso will conclude a move to Real Madrid this Friday for around £32 million. Benitez will use this money to sign David Silva for £21 million and Javi Martinez for £10 million. There won't be much more spending at Liverpool unless Javier Mascherano exits aswell in which case, Benitez will turn to Lee Cattermole of Wigan or back to Madrid for Sneijder.
He is likely to sign a striker and may turn to Fenerbache for David Guiza.
  Gers to sell bougherra to wigan for 6m and replace him with none other than cuellar. Also signign will be alan smith for 3m.

Wish people would talk sense, we will not be signing Trezeguet.

To the guy that wrote chelsea will play 4–1–3–1. Why would they do that when they are allowed to play 11 players. Think before you post
  Cardiff City are ready to swoop for Swanseac teen sensation Joe Allen. The fee is around 1 mill plus heavy extras with promotion and appearances. This has come from a person heavily involved with Cardiff City board who i cannot name.
Cardiff are also looking at loaning Gareth Bale and Giovanni Dos Santos from Spurs,and are currently in talks with numerous other clubs for a defensive midfielder and winger who is well respected in this league
  !! Breaking News !!

All The latest transfer news 100% legit and rubbish !!

Rangers FC Targets
Tonel from Sporting Lisbon is a definite signing for Rangers this season. He has already agreed personal terms and both clubs are just settling on a fee.

James McCarthur is a target for Rangers and they have reportedly already lodged an undisclosed bid for him.

Martin Stranzl is lined up as replacement for Madjid Bougherra who has agreed personal terms with Bourdeaux. Rangers have accepted a £5.5m bid for him.

Rangers have also made an ambitious bid to sign Alan Hutton on loan for a season as he is not in Spurs managers Harry Redknapps plans.

Peter Lovenkrands is another ex ger who may be returning to Ibrox as he has been invited to train with Rangers during their pre–season.

Amadou Alassane is one of Rangers' top priory targets, Rangers scouts have watched him multiple times playing for Le Havre and Rangers have already made contact with the players representatives.

Celtic FC Targets
Landry N'Guemo looked set to sign for The Hoops on loan but he has changed his mind as he said he'd rather play in the Premiership than in Scotland. He may still join.

Daniel Fox is a favourite to join Celtic from Coventry City. He is a left back and will cost between £1.5m – £3m.

Xabier Castillo was an early target for Celtic. He is also a left back but he has told Spanish newspapers that he would prefer to stay in Spain where Osasuna are favourites to snap him up, that's why Celtic are favourites to sign Daniel Fox.

Juan Carlos Menseguez is an Argentine midfielder who has attracted alot of interest from clubs all over Europe. He played under Tony Mowbray at West Brom when he joined them on loan last season from San Lorenzo. His club have priced him at £4m.

Solvi Ottesen is on trial with Celtic at the moment hoping to win a contract. If his trial is successful, Celtic would pay £500,000 to his club SønderjyskE in Denmark.

Reading FC
Tommy Smith is a leading target for the Royals but there has been reports of Reading tapping up the Watford striker. He is intrested in reuniting with his old manager Brendan Rodgers at the Madejski Stadium. Sheffield Utd are thought to have had a £1.8m bid for Smith accepted by Watford.

Nathan Tyson is an ex Reading star that could return as the Royals are ready to offer Nottingham Forest £1m for him.

The man Reading want to replace Kevin Doyle is Leeds Utd Striker Jermaine Beckford. Reading have already spoken to Leeds about the players services and a fee of £2.7m has been offered from Reading.

Reading have also spoken to Chelsea about taking teenagers Michael Mancienne, Jack Cork and Ryan Bertrand on Loan. Brendan Rodgers has worked with all three players and has a good chance of landing them.

Daniel Fox from Coventry is another Reading Target but he is favourite to join Celtic (as listed above).
  Gers fans expect to see the back of Boyd and not how we usually see him (runnin away celebrating his 300 league goal of the season). Derek Johnstone was recently speaking about how the 'Gers should sell him . . DJ is still employed by Rangers and can't really say a bad word against them. However in his newspaper coloumn he was gettin the gers fans ready for his departure. He talks about how it would a be a good thing with only one year remaining on his contract to let him go . . he is only breaking the ice for the news that will make us fans blood boil. Boydie wants to stay but gers aint offerin a new contract. . It pains me to say it but we aint looking to hot for next season!

C'mon Murray just cos we won the league doesn't mean u can take us for granted. Spend something FFS !!!
  SAF has bluffed, just heard from a reliable ex Watford source that Ashley Young is on his way to Man U.
I'm not a Manure fan, AFC for life.
  To the guy that said this:

"My brother works at villa park and said since the players have returned young and oneil havent even spoken. Young is defo on his way out. I heard everton will sign him."

I've heard the same rumour, mate, and it's said to be having a bad impact on team morale. Expect Ashley to go to either Tottenham or Everton, as they're the only teams to show an interest so far.
  Hibernian FC


Hosain Kaebi – RB Ronodo – 200k
Jack Wilshere – Arsenal – Loan (End of Season)

Sol Bamba – Arsenal – 640k
Joe Keenan – Released
Lewis Stevenson – Loan – St. Johnstone
  Not so much a rumour but thought I would ask all you folks on here a serious question if I may.


Are we not humble geordie folk with a love for football.

Do we not attend home and away in our droves and appreciate a good game of football win loose or draw.

Are we deserved of a man who thought one day he would bye a toy to play with then throw it away because it didn't amuse him anymore.

I like most geordies don't think its our god giving right to win the premiership never mind be in it.

But what really pes me off nowadays is the total disrespect people like THE FAT T and footballers have for us the paying customer,and that's not just at newcastle by the way.

Football is becoming a rich mans play thing with over inflated prices and over paid so called profesionals.

Loyalty ahahahahahaahahahahhahaha

Right can of lager time Mmmmmmm
  Who realy thinks YOUNG is going to EVERTON!!

DOWNING is just the start would love to see BENTLEY, BENT and most of the other name that have been mentioned. But the VILLA havnt got as much money as people think or as least as not to waste, so the 12 from BARRY goes straight on DOWNING then after that maybe CAMBELL(free) and some bargain buys from abroad and lower leagues and some loan signings
  Coventry on the verge of signing David Nugent for 1.5m. My Friend says he saw Nugent around The ricoh arena. Expect deal to be announced soon :)
  As a Liverpool fan and having just completed the Anfield tour I was amazed that the guide didn't have a clue who else would be coming to the club after all every other club seems to have an insider who could get 'into trouble' if their clubs find out who they are. Anyway can someone out there who knows what their talking about please answer the following.
Where has the talk of another takeover by DIC come from? When did Rafa say that he was going to make a signing that would disgust Taggart?
  Liverpool FC LATEST:

MASSIVE News from Anfield.

Firstly the inevitable: Alonso is going to Real Madrid. This is to be announced on Monday 20th July. Fee to be £26M rising to £29M after appearances.
Alonso to make public statement expressing his desire to move to Madrid and his respect for Benitez, thus absolving Rafa of any blame for "resentment" between player and manager.

Also announced on Monday will be the SENSATIONAL NEWS that DAVID VILLA AND DAVID SILVA will be signing for LFC. Figures to be finalised, but it will be in the region of £40M + player exchange of Voronin, Reira and Daniel Pacecho (loan).
LFC have actually been in negotiations with Valencia since April, however were waiting to finalise the Alonso situation before closing the deal.

There will also still be enough money for the purchase of Martinez. Strangely enough Mark Noble is also high up on the list of priorities.

Lastly Mascherano is most definitely staying, and will be awarded with a new contract and pay rise.
  Wba news from bullet

Potential outs:
G O'Connor Palace loan
G McSheffrey but only if a 2mil+ offer comes in which is unlikely due to his injury problems
M Bent Sheff Utd loan or permanent
C Doyle Sheff Utd loan or permanent
  OKay. heres a fact. .just because Aguero loves liverpool( Lfc fans)doesnt mean that Atletico love Liverpool too. .so whoever saying Atletico would accept a lower bid from Liverpool for Aguero has absolutely no idea what he/she was talking about.

btw, the imp news is Aguero is not leaving Atletico this summer. and he could be off to Barca next summer.

Sir Alex will sign Ashley Young and Douglas Costa after United return from their asia tour. .

Rafael Benitez will sign Silva only if Alonso leaves. forget about signing Hamsik.

Arsene Wenger will make bids for Seydou Keita, Ibisevic and Sebastian Giovinco.

Chelsea will sign Nemanja Matic Marek Hamsik and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. .
  Jobi McAnuff seen leaving Ipswich Towns Training Ground.
  More on the never–ending Lescott saga. The rumour from City's end, is Joleon HAS already agreed to sign for the Mankies, and Everton have accepted a deal. That deal is a bit complicated, hence there not yet being an announcement. It goes like this: Jo hasn't signed for Everton on a season–long loan. In fact, the signing is permanent but Everton have asked City to keep it all hush hush, so that prices aren't inflated during a search for his replacement. I guess last weeks rumours of Jo on a permanent + £14m might therefore be true.
  Here is some tottenhams tranfer ins and outs for you all

  Landry N'Guemo will be signed today or tomorrow at the lastest and paraded on Firday.

Celtic were hopfull to have Xabi Castillo signed by then too, but it appears he has chosen Bilbao over Celtic.

Celtic's 1st choice for left back will be the lad fox from Covenrty and they are willing to spend about £1–£2million, Conventry want more, but a deal will be done.

Finally, Celtic will hand trials to Marques and tow other players next week. One of the players is from Poland, but don't know all the details.
  To the guy who said that portsmouth will be signing mbia from marseilles, mbia has only just moved to marseilles from rennes this week. Also, Benjani is likely to join stoke instead of a return to portsmouth
