Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Sir alex fergusson will be offered the scotland job on a part time basis if he regects the offer u21 manager billy stark will be offered the job as he has an impressive record with the 21s


ARSENAL FC will definately look to sign a keeper this January & it will be none other than CSKA MOSCOW'S AKINFEEV.This Player is being linked with various other clubs such as Man Utd, Tottenham, Barca.... & so on.
But without a doubt Arsenal is the favourite to get him in their squad.Not because of any cheeky Bid–War win but the fact that his Russian counterpart Andrei Arshawin is one of the key member of Gunners.


To the high hoping and unrealistic united fans, who keep thinking they can sign Silva, Villa, Aguero, Lahm. Why don't you go along and get MESSI. RIBERY. TERRY. FABREGAS. TORRES . Things don't work like that. Its high time you stopped playing that football manager and be real. These are the rumours. TOP 4 TRANSFERS. 1. CHELSEA: Maybe a cover striker and a midfielder. 2. ARSENAL: Misimovic, 12m , Gary cahill, 16m. 3. MAN UTD: Krasic, Modric 17m Rodwell 20m 4. LIVERPOOL: Cole 15m westham.. Inler 13m udinese. I always tell the truth. JD GOONER.


ARSENAL CORNER.... With RVP out for at least two months and Diaby the latest casualty, expect Wenger to let the purse loose by bringing IN: DeRossi 18m, Gary Cahill 16m. OUTS: Senderos 5m Everton. Also expect a cheeky bid for Balotelli. But we all know the gaffer does not buy much players in January. He will only get players who will make a sudden impact. JD GOONER.


Bolton Manager Gary Megson has been told that he will have to sell fringe players before any new players can be signed due to the growing losses. The senior players believe that Megson will be gone by Summer because of the poor results and the fact that he's disliked by many of the senior players. Older Bolton players consider Phill Brown from Hull to be the perfect replacement (ex Bolton with Big Sam)but Gartside believes that Owen Coyle can be tempted away IF Burnley are relegated back to the Championship. Megson is well aware of whats going on, but has vowed to fight for his job. One of Boltons' targets, Charlie Adam has tuned down the chance to play for them. This would have seen Gavin McCann & £1.5m go to Blackpool. McCann is very keen on the move and may/should get a loan move in Jan along with 1 other senior fringe player.Expect 4 or 5 more senior players to leave Bolton in Jan....Megson to be gone in Summer.

Yeah, that is probably the case. It should be much sooner, but the club doesn't seem to attract many managing replacements. Rumour has it that out–of–form (if you can call it that) swede Elmander may be on his way out. He hasn't yet impressed me and I'm sure he's as eager as me to see him leave. I don't think any big names are on the cards in way of purchases. We have been linked to Veloso, Emana and Tamudo. Someone needs to get real.


I have been told that the new Scotland manager will actually be former Peterborough United gaffer, Darren Ferguson. Darren got 'Boro back–to–back promotions then received the sack...WTF? I didn't understand it. Obviously 'Boro have got ideas above their stations! Anyway, expect this to be announced a week after they sack George Burley (disgrace). Did anyone see how bad the overall team performance was against that Wales Under–21 team? It wasn't as if the Welsh were outstanding, was it? I mean seriously it was really appaling, and I can't wait to see how the team progresses under Ferguson.


I have information on a hot prospect for the future. 14–year–old Islam Feruz of Celtic FC has already played for Scotland Under 17's, and has made an appearance for the first team (in the Tommy Burns tribute match, at just 13 years old). Well, Feruz is a class act, I've seen him play on numerous occasions, and, supposedly, Manchester United have already had a £50, 000 bid rejected for him, and as I understand, they are preparing a larger one of £200, 000. Plus, Arsenal, Chelsea, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Man City, Spurs, Inter, AC, Sampdoria, Fiorentina, Barca, Real, Deportivo and Lyon are all also said to be interested. If you are wondering where I received most of this information, I happen to be very good friends with his dad. Don't believe me, I don't care, just check this lad out. Quality. The Trump Card


I've heard numerous rumours about liverpool fc from one of my mates who is self–proclaimed "in the know". I have no idea how much of it is rubbish, but he seemed fairly sure. Benitez will move for eljero elia in january for somewhere in the region of £11m. eduardo was on rafa's radar (granted it was unlikely in the first place), but with the recent injury to van persie, eduardo won't go anywhere. mata signing a new deal is a statement of intent of his dedication to valencia, but they are still trying to raise funds from some of their players so he could be out in the summer. rafa will bid for him in january but won't sign him – maybe just agree terms.

"If van Persie has torn his cruciate ankle ligaments". he will have made medical history. The cruciate ligaments are in the knee you numpty!!!! But still a good rumour.

Mowbray to replace Burley, and the King of Kings to take up his throne in Paradise.
Also I've heard SPL Chairmen to knock back the Big Four


Expect a scramble by the big 4 premier league clubs for Ipswich's young star Connor Wickham. Arsenal to sign Sakho, Hazard and Chamakh. Man Utd to sign Silva, Gourcuff and Akinfeev. Liverpool to sign Kjaer, Pandev and Defour. Chelsea to sign Di Maria, Aguero and Luiz. Man City to sign Benayoun, Azpilicueta and Subotic.


New Scotland manager shocker....strong rumours in Glasgow that it is to be Alan Curbishley. That would send shock waves around football up here.


Word at Pride Park is that Derby are looking at bringing in Colin Calderwood to help under fire Nigel Clough. This won't be as a replacement but Derby feel they need his experience to help avoid relegation.


Liverpool rumour (not much business at all):

OUT: Voronin, Dossena
IN: Pandev, Riise


Celtic to offload the following players in January and July

Samaras 2.2m West Ham McDonald 3m Burnley Brown 5m Spurs Caldwell 750k/free July Burnley McManus £1.4m Middlesbrough McGeady 7m Birmingham Boruc 6m Man u Arsenal Flood Free(exchange Gomis) Hinkel 3m Hamburg Total raised £23million leaving Celtic with an average Spl team, board will give Mowbray £7million in January to buy what he needs to win the league. If he fails he will be sacked. New manager will be brought in an and given 15 million in July,

Shortlist to replace Mowbray

Levin, Lambert, Ferguson and prefered pairing Larsson an Wim Jansen


Hey Gang,

Got a great rumour for you!

I was at Old Trafford, for a conference last week, and word is that Gary Neville is going to quit football in the summer.

Neville is thought to be severely disillusioned by the game, and after recent outbursts in the media he is said to be unhappy at the way Manchester United are being treated by referees.

If he retires, Neville will be offered a role within the club possibly in Youth Development and Sir Alex Ferguson will bring in Phlipp Lahm as his replacement.

Also Sir Alex Ferguson will leave Old Trafford at the end of the 2010–11 season after almost 25 years as manager (November 1986–May 2011) with Jose Mourinho likely to step into his shoes as Manchester United's new manager.


Pat van aanholt on loan from chelsea atm has been linked back with full time deals with loanees coventry as well as other championship sides including ipswich and newcastle.

his brother alex has also been propelling through the ranks in the youth squad of PSV as pat once did and is having talks with english scouts.

other news here in holland includes huntelaar being linked with Arsenal PSV and Twente


Mark Hughes claims that City will not spend big in Jan but this is a smoke screen for the likes of Chelsea. Both clubs are going for the same targets and both managers will be at war during the coming transfer window. During Citys recent trip to abu dhabi Citys owner told Hughes that he wants better from the team and feels that some players are not pulling there weight and to bring in more in jan so competition for places will be more intense. Hughes always knew he had an bottomless pit as a budget but this has just given him more of a need to buy as hes feeling the pressure now due to the owner noticing areas that need sorting. Expect the following to happen in jan....



Celtic are wanting to buy Burnley defender Clarke Carlisle in January.


All on here, NO Scottish clubs apart from Celtic have £3m to spend on Ross McCormack or indeed any player at that price certainly not Motherwell or Hibs, jings Motherwell can't even afford a decent pitch ! Latest rumour here is that Artur Boruc is Man Utd bound for £5m and will be allowed to go, such is the form of Zaluska. Mark Brown will make his loan signing permanent leaving Celtic with Dominic Cervi as back up. McGregor may well be Birmingham bound to re–join McLeish and his best mate Barry Ferguson with Boyd also likely to end up there the Brummie Blues will be the bluenoses of Engerlund.


No major transfer activity for LFC this January. Rafa has a lot of faith in Ngog so will look to a goalscoring winger to kill two birds with one stone, providing he can offload Babel. Elia and Mata are the top targets. Ecclestone has impressed when given his chance so will be given more opportunities through the season. Expect Dossena and Veronin to leave and not be replaced. Mascherano is highly unlikely to leave for Barca. I doubt they will be making any major additions to their squad given that the current presidency runs out in the summer and the manager is yet to commit to a new contract. The presidential elections will revea if Mssch is still a major target for them.


Hull city are to make a bid for Young centre back James wilson who is on loan at Brentford from Bristol City they may face stiff compertition from some of the big boys in London


Heard a rumour that Tomasz Kuszczack will be joining Birmingham City for £4.5 million in January. He's been dissapointed with the limited first team opportunities at Manchester United, and is set to be welcoming the chance of a move. Birmingham are the most interested as they would prefer him and his price tag to the rumoured £8 million tag on Joe Hart's head were they to make the move permanent. Have also been told that Liverpool's new striker will be Gabriel Agbonlahor. I think it's unlikely but the rumoured price tag is £17 million. I'm not sure he would fancy playing second fiddle to Fernando Torres but I thought I would post what I've heard. RUMOUR NOT FACT!
The Trump Card


Rangers to sell mcgregor to man utd £4million
bougherra £6million bolton
k miller £2million middlesborough
k boyd £2.5million birmingham

ins at ibrox
j beckford £ 1 million
shittu loan
gomis £1 million
oberton loan

the money will go towards paying the debt at the club ...

2 in a row here we go...


If van persie has 'torn' his cruciate ankle ligaments the he will be out for the remainder of the season therefore wenger is looking at Chamakh, Huntelaar, Dzeko, Pandev and none other than Mr Henry!


Walsall striker Darren Byfield set to sign a new contract until the end of the season as his short term contract expires in January. One club from the Championship and two from League one thought to be after him but he prefers to stay in the midlands.


Rumours suggesting Barnsley will bid for Adam Le Fondre are false, although they will be bidding for Rohterham's other young star Steven Brogan who will link up with his former millers boss Mark Robins at Oakwell. Welbeck & Gibson rumours are false as Gibson is getting onto the bench on a regular basis and Welbeck could be loaned ot to Portsmouth to help save there dreadful start to the season.

Dont be supprised to see Burnley send David Nugent back to Portsmouth were they will try there hardest to offload him for extra cash to be spent. Doncaster Rovers will try and hold onto Martin Woods who is being targeted by Middlesborough.


Liverpool will look to send out there keeper David Martin & his former club MK Dons are snapping at his heels and are looking at a loan untill the end of the season, MK Dons will also sign Barnsley winger Martin Devaney for £100, 000 in january.

Jermaine Beckford of Leeds United will wait untill the end of the season untill he makes a decision on his future, if Leeds get promoted he will stay at Elland Road, if not he will be subject to a contract offer from Leicester City.

Barnsley are searching high and low for a new center back as a possible replacement for the old warhorse Darren Moore and are lining up Saif Ghezal from The Young Boys of Denmark who will cost around £600, 000.
