Crystal Palace are rumoured to be closing in of the signing of Chris Lines on a permanent deal after he impressed manager Dougie Freedman during training last week.

Freedman has also been impressed with Gould, a South-African defender, who is now close to agreeing personal terms on a £ 500,000 deal. The recent arrival of "KG" on a permanent deal has helped sway the move in Palace's favour.

The spending is not yet over. Crystal Palace are tracking an unnamed Arsenal youngster (loan deal) and deals for Freddie Eastwood and an audacious bid for Juan Lopez, Real Madrid, is set to go through.(4)(12)

15 Jul 2011 19:04:50
adam le fondre is one of the 'mystery strikers' oldham are in talks with and the other is chris porter, both optimistic targets. dickovs number one target was cody mcdonald but norwich have put a 550k price tag on him.
le fondre is in interest with a lot of championship clubs but none will offer him a secure first team place and the right salary, he may move to oldham because of dickov and the backroom staff at oldhams optimistic attitude.
chris porter would be a good signing but is very injury prone and has mixed reviews with the oldham fans due to his contreversial leave, if both of these signings fail then they will look at liam dickinson who has recently left plymouth.
i know this because im good mates with some of the staff at BP(1)(18)

Wolves fan here. Just heard some intresting news about Brighton and Hove Albion from a mate of mine who is a Seagulls fan and works at the club. He has told me that Brighton are in a lot of financial trouble and that Bloom their chairman has lost the plot. After signing CMS he has lost all of his money, Lua Lua and Garvan turned down the club after their agents realised what was going on at the club and that Bloom may not have enough money to to finance the club beyond December.

Worrying times on the South Coast it seems.

leeds united

Andy Lonnergan could still sign for the whites because he said he wants 1st team football which is unlikely at everton.

stockdale also on loan till january which could be completed monday.

alan smith return very unlikely because he wont take a wage cut, leeds offered 15,000 a week and newcastle 30,000 but its still 15,000 a week short of what newcastle pay him now.

Coventry City captain Sammy Clingan could also be joining leeds, its belived the clubs are close to agreeing a fee around 1m.(11)(8)

15 Jul 2011 16:25:11
Stoke will only take cole on their terms; he's not really a priority signing. Midfield and a defender are more likely. There's too many greedy players who would rather sit on the bench at Chelsea / man u / liverpool than play week in week out at one of the so called inferior clubs. Don't expect tp to make any significant signings until near the end of the transfer window when overhyped mediocre players like Dann, jerome & cole realise none of the top 6 are interested. As a Stoke fan, I'm sitting and laughing at clubs like Sunderland who are getting sucked in and making their financial situation ever more perilous.(5)(9)

15 Jul 2011 16:07:21
The report on TIL makes no mention of Sven being in the country, what it says is that Leicester pulled out at the 11th hour and let CMS got to Brighton instead of signing him, a deal was all agreed and it was the club who changed their minds, no mention of Sven being in the same room so get YOUR facts right.

The truth of the matter is CMS choose to sign for Brighton because as he stated Gus Poyet made him feel wanted and that playing for Brighton in a new stadium was what made him choose Brighton. Your just pised because he signed for them rather than your st team. So go get a life and stop going on about something that was sorted a couple of weeks ago you sad arse,(1)(9)

Afternoon all. I have more information from my highly reliable source at Leeds.

Much better news this week as Leeds' hitherto lacklustre transfer window hots up. Eric Lichaj looks certain to join for this season. There have also been some discussions about a permanent move for the player. Villa apparantley want a significant contribution but would sell for the right price.

Andy Lonnergan talks stalled on wage demands, but the player is now deciding between Leeds and Everton. Stockdale will come in on loan for an initial 5 months.

Sammy Clingan looks likely to join after positive initial discussions with Coventry. The fee is expected to be shy of £1m.

Gradel wishes to stay at the club. Apparantley Leeds don't do new contracts over the summer but will open talks with Gradel after 6th August.(11)(10)

Adel Taarabt's future is in doubt.

Sky Sports confirm they are set to offer contracts to Brian Murphy and Danny Webber, who are regulary on the subs bench.

The only good thing that has happened to them so far is the signing of Jay Bothroyd.

Also Manchester United to beat Manchester City to the £37.5 million capture of Inter Milan and Holland playmaker Wesley Sneidjer. He will agree £190,000 wages per week and a three year deal and once he passes the medical, despite Sir Alex Ferguson denying a bid.

It happened with David De Gea to Manchester Utd before he joined, it has also happened to Carlton Cole, before Stoke and West Ham agreed a fee for him and Bolton denied a contract agreement with midfielder Darren Pratley and now looks what happened.

Personally I think it would be a good move for Cole as long as he takes off the rose-tinted glasses and that everything about London is great etc. Just look at what TP has done for Etherington. Join the revolution Carlton (or don't) Also expect Stoke to bid for Sturridge, againn my source has told me that teams are interested but only on loan, Stoke are the only club to have a tabled a bid. He also has conncections in Congleton(11)(7)

The saga of Nicky Maynard continues... it turns out that Leicester pulled out of the deal for CMS (who eventually went to Brighton) at the last minute as Sven wanted Maynard more.

Maynard is apparently meeting Bristol City today to discuss the contract they offered him a month ago and, if he doesn't sign, Sven has lined up a 4th bid for the player that'll probably top £5m.

Plymouth hope to satisfy the Football League, with regard to the takeover, and will look to sign up 16-17 free players as their squad is wafer thin and Peter Reid does not want to risk throwing the kids into the squad.

Expect Jon Brain, Lee Beevers, Liam Chilvers, Miguel Comminges, Mark Dudley, Jon Harley, Radi Kishishev, Morten Knudsen, Rob Kozluk, Mark Bentley, Mark Bradley, Gareth Edds, Holmar Eyjolfsson, Christian Baz, Drewe Broughton, Sean Canham in at Home Park.

As already pointed out, Beevers went to Walsall. However, the rest sound pretty believable apart from Kozluk (will not move south). Can't see Plymouth doing that well with the players you mentioned - then again they'll probably be relieved to be in existence(5)(7)
