Stoke considering a swoop for central midfielder Charlie Adam, also Pulis still looking to sign Micheal Owen after he was released from Manchester United. also Kenwyne Jones to Aston Villa for 3.5m

This is all rubbish

It's in our local newpaper {Ed001's Note - they have been offered Adam.}

Its in the daily mail

All rubbish? Jones part is true enough - Lambert says he wants him & Defoe.
Would make sense in theory actually!

Charlie Adam going to everton for 5 million.

Charlie Adam would be a good signing, great set piece taker and would be an excellent mentor for Jamie ness.

How is it !

/ how is that rubish? adam is interesting everton and stoke, jones will be leaving the club and its common knowledge that owen has been talking to stoke for a long time, person

3.5 million no chance closer to 6.

3.5 never enough!

Has Pulis got a hard-on for CMs this season instead of CBs? No matter who we sign he'll still play Whelan & Whitehead.

That's bang on mate! No matter who he signs he will still play Whelan and whitehead..! Awful players sorry! They both quite embarrassing at times too!



17 Aug 2012 22:18:27
Oldham have signed Cristian Montano on a 2 year contract from west ham

Another actual signing the rumour mill failed to pick up on

It must have been a huge secret ;-)

We need two strong central midfielders, welowski is injury prone and furman is not good enough to be starting never mind be captain!

1- Furman is one of the best cm's in our league.
2- A captains main quality is his leadership, not his technical ability.

Could do with some leadership now.

Being captain its not easy furman for me has got goog leadership qualties the boys look to him get behind him and the team

Your right leadership is a captains main quality can you please explain in you wisdom if furman is such that big captain you say he is why the fans and the players didn't get an apology from him for the mess he made of the warsall game??

Hang on a minute! He made a messed up with the pass back, its not like he went out on the pitch and got all players to do the opposite of what they have trained on all week. I would rather he puts it right on the pitch rather than publicly apologise. But hey what do I know!! Lets take your advice instead and instead of going to training on a Monday morning we get all our players to 1 by 1 stand in front of the fans and apologise for all the mistakes they made in the game so all the fans can vilify them and smash to pieces their remaining confidence. How are you not a Premiership manager with your awesome insight to man management?

If football was played and no mistakes were made then football would be a dull game i suppose in your work place this never happens oldham needs true supporters to get behind their team

"hang on a minute" he is the captain! for one! everyone looking to him! the only player thats tried to public rallie the troops has been simpson. while furman continues to hide behind PD! he's not a captain! im hopeing ill be proved wrong if we loose to portsmouth then we are in trouble

Stop being so negative if we loose to portsmouth were in trouble dont know many teams that have been relegated after four games wouldnt want you in the trenches next to me with your never say die attitude from a true supporter

To hang on a minute keep the faith from the man in the trenches great 3 points



17 Aug 2012 21:59:03
Leeds Full back Paul Connolly has signed a loan deal at Pompey and will be joined on Monday by Josh Thompson from Celtic. Mikkell Andersen and Conor Clifford signed earlier today again on one month loans

Cms,stated he is happy at desire to move north to leeds. the south coast suits him.and leeds could not afford him

We dont want cms 9 goals in 45 games is shocking becchio scored more than that and he wasnt even fully fit mot4life



17 Aug 2012 22:02:42
Swansea have completed the signing of Preston striker Jamie Proctor for an undisclosed fee.

Fee was 60k according to the press

Never 60k utter rubbish was six figure same as barton

Beavon was in the wycombe team and scored today

Bevon deal is looking dead at the moment as North End have been quoted crazy prices, they have turned there attention to another player who they were in talks with on Friday

Not even worth 60k! He hasn't gone for any more what so ever! We did well getting that for him!



17 Aug 2012 21:34:22
Brigton to sign free agent Ricardo Fuller in next 48 hours.

Fuller is signing for middlesbrough

19 Aug 2012 09:59:34
Is he really signing for Middlesbrough? I've heard we've been linked with him but nothing beyond that. Apparently he was on trial at Leeds



17 Aug 2012 21:18:54
Norwich have made a 1.5 million bid for Serbian-Norwegian striker Nikola Djurdjic who has scored 12 goals in 18 appearances for Norwegian Premier League outfit Haugesund.

Odense have also made a bid for him. Haugesund are holding out for as much money as they can get for him.

Within our price range .....

Any more news on the mighty shakers.



17 Aug 2012 20:37:00
Matt Phillips has handed in a transfer request at Blackpool n will nt b playing against millwall

This really is sad news if it's true, he could have been a great player but he'll end up warming a bench in the prem if he goes. Tbh though if he wants out then we should say goodbye, don't need another Charlie Adam fiasco. KO needs to replace him tho, maybe spend some money for once!

Rubbish-just trying to stir things up

Will sign for the saints over the weekend?

If he does go he will go to saints, where he wouldnt be a bench warmer

If he comes to Southampton he won't be warming the bench.
He will be playing. We're investing in youth at St Marys

I'm am the poster of thsn I couldn't agree with u mre the money oyston gets for phillips should go str8 on players bt I've got a feeling it won't.The Blackpool evening Gazette was my source btw

It is not true matty phillips is going to stay at blackpool he has essentially three years left on his contract and southampton will have to break their transfer record after their 11 mil signing to get him he wont go simple as

Matt Phillips has only 1 year left on his contract and will go to Southampton or Everton by transfer deadline day.Blackpool to insert add on clauses and will look for season long loan player as replacement.

To all those oysten haters I say we're are you now holloway after the match came out and said Phillips is staying as we don't need the money and why is that because oysten is a tight man who hates oysten now

He does not only have 1 year left on his contract.

Thanks to oliie for positive comments made about millwall makes such a nice change !

He has three three three three THREE years left on his contract

He hasn't got a year left he's got a year + a year option on the clubs favour.
So effectively that's 2 years.......Oyston won't sell him to Southampton now, they've taken the p*ss in his eyes and if there's 1 thing Oyston is, it's stubborn.

Despite what Ollie said about him going nowhere, If Everton or someone else came in then who knows but trust me Matty WILL NOT sign for Southampton.



17 Aug 2012 20:30:57
Stuart Beavon deal is stalling for Preston North End, he was spotted in Preston offices, these are all true.

Healy in talks.




He just scored 2 goals for Wycombe this 100% doubt he's signing for Preston as he wouldnt have played today......PNE cant aford the asking price of 450k.....and after the 2 goals today, that will go up to 500k

I think you will find beavon only scored one

Wait until monday, things will start to happen. Money will be in from sales of DM and JP. Either of Beaven or Healy to sign.

He scored 1, get your facts right.

Facts are PNE cannot & will not sign Bevon.....end of.



17 Aug 2012 19:26:08
Millwall will sign Federico Bessone from swansea on loan


Let him go never be the player he was before he joined leeds injury ruined a otherwise prem quality defender

He is shocking, be glad to see the back of him, you can never rest when he is on the ball - a liability



17 Aug 2012 20:04:09
Any Walsall rumours please

Jordon Stewart and James Chambers to sign next week

Walsall Football Club have today completed the signing of 31-year-old full back James Chambers, following a successful trial.

Walsall have just signed james chambers... Source: walsall fc website

Sam Baldock is set to be unveiled as a Bristol City player Monday afternoon

As a long standing BCFC supporter, I would love this to be true but I reckon this ship has well and truly left port! It's been going on too long now.

Doubt it baldock off to to wolves jarvis going other way west ham paying about 9m for him

Agree with this statement, seem like campbell is the one now

People need to stop going on about baldock its rubbish and never going to happen



17 Aug 2012 19:37:12
Crawley have signed Nicky Ajose, and
Jonathen Forte, both on 3 month loans,
and have an option to buy Ajose after
loan expires, official on there website



17 Aug 2012 18:43:52
Luke James is expected to sign for Carlisle for the Tranmere game

You really think luke james would move from hartlepool to arguably one of our biggest rivals? and where are carlisle getting the 1m to buy him?

If he leaves it will surely be to a team higher than League One and for a hefty price tag!

Two good cup runs and the sale of players not re-invested. If they wanted to "for the right player" they could probably find it. the issue would be the wages after that. Greg wouldn't spend that kind of money though. Carlisle's next signing will come from the championship or premiership reserves with a player with a point to prove. Career half stalled and not in his manager's plans for this year. It won't be Watt though.



17 Aug 2012 18:37:51
Norwich to make a shock move for Michael Owen if the transfer to Stoke cannot be sorted. It will be on a pay-as-you-play deal and money from the transfer fund will be moved to the wage budget in order to accommodate the move. Chris Martin and Simeon Jackson will be sold.

I'm not saying they won't be able to afford his wages but they won't pay his wages considering he want's 70k a week

I think anyone who touches Owen at 70K a week is crazy, Norwich board are not crazy so I suspect this rumour is complete BS

I would rather keep Jacko than get Owen there are a lot better options on the market.

I am hoping C.Martin & S.Jackson go but no no no no no to Owen........

Owen has apparently turned his nose up at a 50k equivalent pay-per-play deal at Stoke. Doubt Norwich can offer more that that.



17 aug 2012 17:55:12
rumour that wont go away, berbatov

3 month loan with option to make it permanent, confirmed by PUFC

Confirmed that Ajose has gone to Crawley on a 3 month loan. On POSH website.



17 Aug 2012 16:51:25
Hearts will sign Kris Doolan from Partick. Out of contract at end of season and John McGlynn saw a lot of him in the past 2 years when manager of Raith.

Expect to sign this window or pre contract in January.

Will be a great signing. Best player in Div 1

Needs to be done NOW- we're short of a striker.



17 Aug 2012 16:29:32
Heard today from a Rochdale fan in the know that manager John Coleman trying to tie up a deal to sign trialist Sean McConville with Morecambe waiting to pounce.



17 Aug 2012 16:13:14
Bristol city have agreed terms with 35 year old former Manchester united and arsenal star Mikael Sylvestre after he was released by Werder Bremen at the end of last season, he is said to be interested in a move back to England and the deal is completed subject to a medical

Possibly the worst rumour I have ever heard! Stop looking at the free agents on football manager 2012 mate and join us in the real world.

Haha thats the funniest one i've read

No. We do not want or need any 35 year old players. We are trying to build for the future!

Dmytro Chygrynskiy is on steve keans radar



17 Aug 2012 16:10:41
Brentford to complete the signing of Paul Hayes now they have off loaded Myles Weston to Gillingham.

I'll believe it when it happens.

Will be confirmed on Monday, 3 year deal

Confirmed on CAFC official site

U were right

I'd love to know who said this. Was correct and 48 hours beforehand. Would love to know if you have more transfer info?

It was me that predicted hayes signature, I am not particularly in the know, I just keep my ears open and my eyes peeled. For what it's worth a young loanee is possible, an impressive name if it happens......

Any chance you could elaborate on that?

Can only say that it's probably not gonna happen now but if it does all bees fans would be very excited

^^^^^^ When was this note left?!? Can you confirm if you were talking about Bidwell or Adeyemi?

Neither, but the proposed loan deal I was referring to has fallen through. Good work to get bidwell back though. If I have any more info I'll post ASAP



17 Aug 2012 16:09:08
Wigans Conor Sammon has signed for Derby County.

Is this true Ed?
Oldram {Ed003's Note - No,nothing is confirmed }

Announced before season starts heard it here first.....solly :)

It's true. He signed last night for 1.2 mil. As Kilmarnock confirmed they will receive 120k from the 10% sell on clause in his contract. Source - Kenny Shiels (manager) discussing transfers and budgets as he tried to bring in Harewood but couldn't afford wages!

That's true in all the Scottish newspapers this morning about Kiliie getting 100 grand from salmon sale.

Signed for 1.2m

He has signed just know on sky sports news



17 Aug 2012 16:08:35
Gillingham have signed Myles Weston from Brentford. Good signing for Gills, he has pace to burn and is 24 years old so room to improve his consistency. Will do well at L2 level.



17 Aug 2012 16:08:06
Blackburn rovers will make Lennart Thy of St Pauli their next signing.



17 Aug 2012 15:53:45
Bristol Rovers and Gillingham are reported to be in talks with centre forward Tresor Kandol. The striker is thought to be on wages in the region of £3,000 which could be out of reach for both league 2 clubs. Kandol has been looking for a move back to an English league side since moving abroad several seasons ago, when offered big wages,

Already said this the gills wont sign another striker they have 5 strikers. 6 with bradley dack coming through

3000 a week is about the going rate for a good league 2 player, well it is at Rovers anyway.

That is the AVERAGE wage of a FIRST TEAM player so ithey can afford him but they wont get him we have 5 strikers and bradley dack

Bradley Dack is an attacking midfielder. Get yer facts straight.

That is why he said 5 strikers and bradley dack as in he can play up front. read it properly then moan

Swindon are keen to bring Ross Allen and David Healy in a,s.a.p

Meanwhile, Oxford United are to sign Windsor's Ryan O'Toole once they sell James Constable on.

Healy only wants to rejoin preston

Has Ritchie put in a transfer request? That's what we are hearing down here

Ross Allen must have the world's slowest handwriting, he's been signing for Swindon for months & months according to this site.

Constable is going nowhere. Oxford have turned Bristol's offer down.

Constable is going nowhere!

Yeah I would keep cunstable good for you guys down in league 2

Source? And no Ritchie has not

Healy and beavon going to preston unfortunately

Healy is not going to Preston

Healy NOT going to Preston.

Healy is signing for swindon!

Have a feeling healy might go swindon

He's going Bury

Hes signed for bury



17 Aug 2012 15:44:12
Swindon are 'very close' to signing a new player according to boss PDC, any names? Anyone know? Admin have an idea?

Couple of strikers due in before end of august kitson and pitman

Kitsons still a possible, pitman likley to go to burnley

Tom Soares and Peter Kurucz are set to join the Portsmouths revolution.

Tom soares is on trial and is looking likely! But never heard of the other dude. can any stoke fans comment on wether soares will be anygood for league 1?

Would love tom soares to come, the team is looking pretty good for next season, providing we get another centre back



17 Aug 2012 14:55:05
Pulis admits that he'd still like to bring matt Jarvis to stoke, he is also hopeful of completing the signing of micheal Owen

Jarvis is an awesome player but I don't think we will get to sign him this season nor think we should. Signed Kightly which is as effective as Jarvis. Instead we should can our interest in Owen because he is just going to be a dissapointment and use the funds that could be spent on Jarvis to link Crouch back up with Defoe! We need goals this year and he can provide them!

Spurs wont sell as they have 2 strikers defoe and harry kane

The only way Spurs would ever sell a striker Is if the get emmanuel adebayor, But they have had complications.
And with Defoe Scoring today against Newcastle I think AVB would like to keep hold of him.



17 Aug 2012 14:49:55
Any Bolton news on a def midfielder?

Def midfielder? I have not heard anything!

Sanchez not signing for Bolton apparently left the Reebok tonight in a right mood! And it all looked to be going smoothly when he turned up at Manchester airport last night wanting the move. Probably his agent again! Back to the drawing board.

Clearly COYLE is like a dog with a bone, he just won't give this one up. He rarely does, sometimes this can go against him as other obvious targets are overlooked. I fancy this deal being concluded on deadline day.

Jay spearing on loan



17 Aug 2012 14:29:44
norwich have signed blackburn keeper mark bunn

Not a chance ruddy is class

Norwich bid 500'000 and blackburn said NO CHACE

southampton are closing in on a sensational swoop for gaston ramirez of bologna.the urugyan is well sort of around europe and this will be a major coup for the saints...

Hope that it happens not 100% until on os,fingers crossed with maybe matty Phillips from Blackpool in the next few days as well.

Its fallen through. Bologna want 16 million,check local paper

Yes he wll be

Looking in doubt hate to say it but looks like everyones jumped the gun again, fingers crossed though maybe just a tactic by bolongna to hold out for more doh =/

I think seeing as news got out and he'd be an impressive signings we should offer more. It's only another million EURO's on what we already offered so go to 12.5 million pounds we should be successful. Also media said the 11.8 was accepted.

I think the Bologna chairman is just posturing and dragging this out personally. He may well feel he has a valuation that he doesn't want to budge on but as we have been a million times before he will I'm sure negotiate an agreement. Otherwise he has an unhappy star player on the eve of a season when he could take a couple of mill euros less and get a replacement in.
My main fear is that with all this being played out so publicly a bigger club may gate crash the deal.

We will go back in for him I think

The deal has not fallen through, it does not say that anywhere. A fee is still being negotiated. Still looks likely.


Ramirez has said himself we have offered him a lot of money & he wants to move. You can't talk to a player & agree terms with a unless a fee is agreed. I believe the issue is how the fee is to be paid (installments etc). This deal is not dead. Fingers crossed it doesn't turn out to be another Buttner scenario. In Cortese we trust. Would love us to sign Matty Phillips too. COYR!! {Ed001's Note - you can be given permission to speak to a player without agreeing a fee, it is up to the selling club to decide.}

Goodluck to you! You will stay up Hooton taking us down NCFC......

Its all bollox, our chairman is out there right this second sorting the deal out. the press is speculating so much! this is exactly why saints dont discuss any signings before its 100% because all this BS happens! i can 100% guarantee he will have the number 10 shirt soon

2 the post bout hope phillips comes looks likely as hes not playing 4 blackpool against millwall positive signs come on u saints get a result tmz

Hello Ed,can you throw any more light on the deal for the Urugyan lad,also Matty Phillips and Buttner,have you heard anything from the inside so to speak.
Thanks. {Ed001's Note - Bologna have not been easy to deal with, hence why Southampton have the chance to seal a deal. I still expect them to sort something out though, Cortese is a very shrewd operator. Phillips I am unsure of, something has certainly turned his head, all summer he has been telling people he is happy at Blackpool for one more season, at least. Now he suddenly wants out for his Scotland place, so something has changed his mind, but Oyston is a very tough man to make a deal with, unless he wants the deal. I think Southampton might end up facing the same treatment other clubs were getting over Adam in the January window while Blackpool were in the Prem. Simply put, Oyston will just refuse to discuss any deal with them, in my opinion. Buttner I believe is no longer going to happen and the deal I am told is dead.}

The clubs will meet on Monday and the talks look set to complete. They will be buying the 70% stake owned by Bologna for around 13 million pounds it seems but may pay more. They will then have to buy the 30% owned by his previous club and pay off the agent as well.

You can't make that garuntee. According to the Bologna chairman this is going to have to restart on Monday due to issues so maybe it is happening and maybe not. It does sound like it will happen based on the fact it reached contract talks previously.

Thanks for your note Ed. I hope Holloway soon realises that an unhappy Phillips will not do his squad any favours. There is a significant difference in the Lallana situation in that although both managers were determined to keep their players, Lallana wanted to stay while Phillips wants away. {Ed001's Note - Holloway wanted to sell Adam in the January, for the reason you mention, but Oyston just refused point blank. Oyston will make the decision and it will be the one he believes to be right for the club, whether anyone else agrees with him or not. He is extremely stubborn and will not be held to ransom by a player and nor should he be. Phillips should just concentrate on playing to his best and if the deal comes, it comes.}

I think he got confused with Adam Ed. He's thinking Adam Lallana, not Charlie Adam. Hence the Lallana comment {Ed001's Note - I just pointing out that it matters little what Ollie wants, it will come down to what Oyston decides.}

Buttner's going to United.

Arsene Wenger will not be signing another striker after the departure of Robin van Persie as he states that Giroud and Podolski were brought in with the possible departure of van Persie well in mind. The French manager has however, been in talks with Newcastle about the acquisition of Tiote as a replacement for the Barcelona-bound Song.

Only if arsenal will pay more than 25mil for toite



17 Aug 2012 13:21:42

Burnley will finish off a solid transfer
window by completing the £250k signing
of Yannick Bolasie from Bristol City.

From the horse's mouth (or Yannick's!).

U must be joking if u think we would let him go for that

Hopefully,hes fast but cant pass or cross or shoot,250k and city would snap ur hands off

Worth more than that i think they will be looking for 500k to 1mil for him

Try about 1.5 mil

Doubt it, Howe has said he's not looking at any more transfers, not even covering for Ings injury



17 Aug 2012 13:35:51
QPR are changing their name to Manchester utd B with launching interest Dimitar Berbatov and already got fabio(loan) and park...............

They only have 2 ex Utd players, where as they have 3 ex-citeh men, so would that not make them Man City's B team??


I also hear they will introduce italian rules of co-ownership of a player and buy half of howard webb {Ed003's Note - I was going to delete because its banter,If posters started new threads we could have better banter threads. Very good btw}

So i guess with the likes of berba and carrick Man Utd are like spuds b team



17 Aug 2012 13:16:13
Southampton have agreed a club record deal with Bologna for Uruguay international Gaston Ramirez. Southampton chairman Nicola Cortese has brokered the deal, which is believed to be worth 15million (£11.8million).

Have we signed him,just seen Adkins interview on the box and he seems very
edgy about the whole thing,hope it's true
though,exciting player.

Bologna chairman has just come out and said that we haven't agreed a price and unless we meet bolgna's valuation he wont be going anywhere! believed to be 16 million

16million euro's. We can match that easily it's not much of an increase.



17 Aug 2012 13:14:15
Newcastle are close to signing midfielder Nigel Reo Coker on a one year contract after the player left relegated Bolton last month.

So Newcastle are rumoured to want to sign NRC along with god knows how many clubs have been linked with him all over Europe if he was that good he would have been snapped up long before now, unless like Sanchez wants tooooo much money.

It was Hull City last night, Wolsburg, Gladback, Sevilla, Foirentina, Fulham to name just a few. The man is a joke.

If he was that good he would have been snapped up by now! I have never seen someone leave a club so quickly after relegation. No loyalty !



17 Aug 2012 13:11:54
Saints to buy Gaston Ramirez from Bologna for £11.8 ... Plays attacking midfield or on the wings ... Big statement of intent by Southampton if it goes through! Various sources following this deal.



17 Aug 2012 13:10:25
Southampton FC look set to complete moves for Bologna Winger Gaston Ramirez and Vitesse Full-Back Alexander Buttner as soon as this evening for fees of £11.8 million and £3 million respectively.

Isn't buttner staying in Europe now?

Didn't come off did it. Far as I'm aware the gaston deal is at stalemate

Buttner is having a medical at united

Buttner is a United player now. Shame, I think he would have been a step forward for us from Danny Fox.

Dicko signs season long loan at blackpool UTMP



17 Aug 2012 12:56:12
charlton completed dorian dervite signing on one year deal and could start tommorow
still 3 transfers to complete
paul hayes and leon clarke out and a new striker to replace them up the addicks

Any truth in Hayes to Swindon?

Any idea who these 3 signings will be?

You've got it wrong mate, it's not three signings if three transfers, 2 are Clarke and Hayes leaving and the third is a new striker coming in that is either Baldock or a prem loanee

We don't need another striker though don't we, that's probably our strongest position

Hayes is staying down south - Hayes could play a part in a deal for wordsworth from col u - Hayes could go to brentford or swindon.



17 Aug 2012 12:22:09
Carlos Sanchez arrived at Bolton last night for more talks expected to sign today!



17 Aug 2012 12:12:29
Oldham, Tranmere and Bournemouth all look set to battle it out for the signature of Nathan eccleston from Liverpool after new boss Brendan Rodgers made it clear that he had no future at the club

Adam Barrett has signed for Gillingham for an undisclosed fee afcb website

I would imagine he would want championship football but if this were true then would like him at Bournemouth. Might only be a loan move thow.

Nathan ecclestone is young 5' 10'' striker seems to need move from liverpool youth, having been loaned out to huddersfield and rochdale but needs regular football to prove himself. Scoring record is not brilliant but must have something about him having played one senior game at liverpool. Bournemouth could do with another striker to cover DeMouge, sherringham, McQuoid injuries and tubbs and thomas not able to play together.

He's a local lad, but doubt he'd go from Liverpool in the Prem to Oldham in League 1.

He went to Rochdale and Huddersfield in league one though and hardly set the league alight. Latics need experience now if they are after another striker, but I think we should be ok with Slew, Taylor and Simpson.

Bournemouth have signed lee barnard from southampton on loan untill january so i do think they will be signing ecclestone



17 Aug 2012 12:02:52
Northampton town have been trying to swap akinfenwa for lutons Stuart fleetwood.
It now seems to have gone dead as last years league two top scorer didn't want to drop into non league football.
Southend,Rotherham and leyton orient are now interested in signing akinfenwa who has been replaced in the starting line up by Clive platt.
I can't see why Northampton would've swapped akinfenwa
Fleetwood as he didn't set the world alight in the semi professional league last year.
Would have been hell of a result for Luton though.
Bayo may be big and slow but he scores a goal every two games and would finally get you back in the league as its been a few years now.

Would like him to come to rotherham but we already have odejayi and revell competing for the target man and steve evans has confirmed that theyve been in talks with a striker for the past couple of days and bayo isnt realy a poacher

Saw northampton manager on their website yesterday ,was asked about evans and bayo, said no contact betweeen clubs,so hes not the striker evans is in talks with.

Anymore gossip as we are struggling!!



17 Aug 2012 12:00:57
Tom Soares signing one month deal at Pompey today,he trained with Portsmouth yesterday.Also Conor Clifford has signed a one month loan deal from Chelsea



17 Aug 2012 12:00:13
Gaston Ramirez from Bologna to Southampton deal agreed at around £12m.

He wants guaranteed first team football which the big clubs in for him can not offer, and he will become our highest paid player of all time.

If we pull this off it will be incredible.

Source: SSN, Daily Echo, Metro, Goal

Quick note. I think a few are on the wages he's demanding already. He isn't getting paid too much.

The wage is reported to be around 70,000 a week - a wage level that put Tottenham off of him, after they had agreed a transfer fee.

Presently Southampton's highest earner is believed to be Rickie Lambert on 30,000 a week.

The first poster is correct in saying this will smash our past and present wage structure.

I think he'd be less that 70k per week and a lot would come in add ons. I imagine a maximum of 50k per week will be offered with possible add ons for performance.

The wage is SORTED 2.5m Euro's per calender year, which is roughly 48k p/w which i'm guessing is 40k p/w which is only 10k p/w more than what Lallana and Lambert are on. That is hardly smashing the wage structure, especially for such a big name.

De Rossi of roma set for talks with Man city



17 Aug 2012 11:56:00
After the signing of Saha oneill has submitted a double bid of 20mil for Johnson and Milner which has been accepted. They will be in in Sunderland after there first game to sign and be ready for there first home game. Other targets are Olsson and Defoe.

Hopefully this is true, with Defoe also, looks like oniell is pushing through h credentials for next England manager when England fk up for world cup qualifiers. Not a villa fan but reckon they'll do good this year, top 6.

Spurs are interested in Johnson, so we've had it.



17 Aug 2012 11:47:14

Doncaster sign James Harper

If true ,god help yer



17 Aug 2012 11:33:31
Gazzette to post a full story tomorrow. Blackpool getting a Prem Striker on loan and it's not Dobbie. My source from the paper won't say who it is. I think it's DJ Campbell thoughts? Seasider87

It'll be Lee Barnard in a swap + cash deal for Matt Phillips.

Dicko from Wigan back on a season long loan

Well he hasnt been given a squad number at qpr so sounds a bit truthful
(QPR season ticket holder)

Dicko {Ed003's Note - I think they're trying for another striker aswell as dicko's loan}

It is Dicko from Wigan

Its a Liverpool striker

Ed i think that would be a perminante signing not a loan signing that they are talking abodut



17 Aug 2012 11:18:51
Hull city midfielder Paul McKenna is a target for Doncaster rovers.

Not any more. Donny have signed James Harper instead



17 Aug 2012 10:56:57
Charlton are trying to hijack Stephen Dobbie's move to Blackpool as we speak.

Blackpool will out do us for money and on top of that Dobbie has a history with them. No chance we will get him.

You just dont know any more with bristol getting dj dobbie could go to charlton



17 Aug 2012 10:56:11
Macheda will be joining in season loan. To be confirmed early next week. Target man and quality on the floor. Just what gus has been looking for.

Macheda would meet Brighton's criteria for a target man type striker. However I cannot see any reason to wait until next week to finalise such a move (if it happens) given RVP's move and Brighton's list of injured forwards.

To who???????????



17 Aug 2012 10:37:34
Swansea will sign Pablo Hernandez and Miku from Valencia and Getafe before they face off against West Ham a week tomorrow! They will also sell Scott Sinclair to Manchester City after Michael Laudrup confirmed the winger will not sign a new contract!

Anyone know who the player Swindon are close to signing is?

Healy .



17 Aug 2012 10:33:51
Hello Swansea city fans. I'm an arsenal fan and I have to say Kyle bartley shows a lot of promise. Also I hear you have put in a four million pound bid in for our player diaby.

Hello Swansea City fans. I am a Celtic supporter and I can categorically say that you should not touch Kyle Bartley with a barge pole. As a follower of Scottish football, I have been able to take in Bartley's performances for Rangers over the last 1.5 seasons and he is an absolute bomb scare. Although I took great pleasure in seeing his defensive lapses at Rangers, I urge you to go nowhere near this player as Swansea are probably my Premier League team!

This guy was at rangers,is he the worst defender in epl,no wonder he cant get a game for arsenal

I have seen him play and he's gash tbh.. how did he ever get scouted by arsenal?

david krakofalot

Hope this rumour for Diaby is true...

I myself am a swans fan looking forward to seeing them in action tmos



17 Aug 2012 10:12:02
Heard from a reliable source that Burnley are interested in Bristol city forward Brett Pitman. If the clarets sign Pitman then the club will look to sell Martin Paterson.

Not for as long as City only have 2 fit strikers you won't be signing him!

Rubbish i know pitman has been told will be bristols main man up front this year so is staying put

Don't sell pato please because pitman is bad

Patos not going anywhere from what i saw in todays game he scored a goal and looked quite lively in the 2-0 victory over bolton .UTC



17 Aug 2012 10:00:53
Southampton have agreed fee with Bologne for Gaston Ramirez(11.8m) He's flying over to Southampton today to complete medical ready for man city on Sunday

Not to sure he will be available for the city game does he need a work permit? yhose thing take ages.

I think he's fine for a work permit. If not shouldn't take too long should be available by Southampton VS Wigan I think him ready for VS City is unlikely.



17 Aug 2012 09:52:49
David martin of southend united has been put up for sale. David martin didnt make an empression of him self, but had a chat with paul sturrock saying he wants more first team appearances.

Mohammed Abdellaoue is coming to Norwich Friday to undergo a medical and agree on personal terms, according to BBC Radio Norfolk.

Which Friday ?

Welcome news if true, strikers from the bundesliga seem to change well to the prem (Ba and Cisse)

He stated he was happy at Hannover further to Swansea's interest in him. I very much doubt this is going to materalise..

It never said that on radio Norfolk



17 Aug 2012 09:26:46
Southampton set to smash there transfer record after a £11.8million fee has been agreed with bolongna for uruguay 21 year old playmaker gaston ramierez.. Skysportsnews

Sounds as though it's a done deal

Rubbish! bologna have turned down bids of 16m, juve, liverpool and spurs etc interested in him. made me smile reading this

"Rubbish! bologna have turned down bids of 16m, juve, liverpool and spurs etc interested in him. made me smile reading this".....Sorry have you not been awake today? Its nearly a done deal! Dear god.


Bet there are a lot of people from other clubs on here that feel a little bit silly now.
Like the ones who thought Rodriguez was the end of our spending? Or thought we couldn't afford the 6-7mill for Matt Phillips? Those that thought our ambition was unrealistic? That thought we couldn't draw big names? Shhhhh! COYS!

Made me smile reading your reply, on his way to Southampton, who's laughing now COYR!

Well perhaps you should smile your way through all tomorrow's papers and on every football site online. It's happening my friend! COYS!

Im a saints fans and we should all just calm down lol. nothing signed yet and no fee agreed, glad this kind of player is considering us though. really hope we manage to push it through

It will be a shame if this one hits the buffers but all the haters/doubters from other clubs waiting to lay into us should this not come off are missing the point. Even if Bologna don't sell this is a statement of I tent. We have 12mill to spend on a player at least, we have persuaded one of the worlds brightest young talents to come to us over Juve, Inter, Liverpool, Spurs. We are not little saints down the dell anymore. We are serious and have ambition. Signing or no signing this has proved that.



17 Aug 2012 09:50:01
PDC looking for next available exit out of Swindon not happy with transfer policy he identified several possible targets over last two weeks only to be snubbed by board.

Ha ha nothing good going on at your poxy little yellow club, you have to make up rubbish with ours... PDC is very happy, so far he has signed all 7 transfer targets that he has wanted and is about to sign another striker.... FACT

So the jealous Oxford fan is stirring up stupid gossip again, have a look at WHO we have already signed, ---- does that say to you the board are not being supportive.

Get your own house in order before starting on us,oh and by the way get your ground finnished 3 sided stadium --- what a joke

Looking for next available exit? Just few days after saying in an interview he wouldn't swap Swindon for anything?

!! Jeremy Wray flew out to Italy a few weeks ago to the training camp and informed PDC that there was another 2 million avaliable for players....PDC TOLD WRAY HE IS IN NO RUSH AND ONLY WANTS TWO MORE PLAYERS...HE WANTED TO WAIT TO SEE EXACTLY WHICH POSITIONS NEEDED STRENGTHENING, YESTERDAY HE CONFIRMED THAT HE HAS IDENIFIED ONE TARGET AND IT LOOKS POSITIVE THAT THIS PLAYER WILL SIGN EARLY NEXT WEEK!! How pathetic to use this rumour site to try winding people up.....if you are going to try this nonsense do a little research first....owing to what has REALLY happened over the last few months it makes your claim look totaly pathetic as well.

Incorrect. he himself said it was his decision to pull out of a number of transfers



17 Aug 2012 09:48:04
Terms and fee officially agreed with
Bologna for the transfer of Gaston
Ramirez. The fee is thought to be
around £11.8 million with Ramirez
becoming the highest paid player at

Usually I just post fact on here but I'm
going to go ahead and say it. I'm well
excited and so pleased we've managed
to get a player that is a completely
different class.



17 Aug 2012 09:35:41
Huddersfield Town are trying to sign Derby striker Nathen Tyson .

Why??? 30 years old and not in double figures for a three or four seasons

Hope not, he doesn't score many/any goals and is the wrong side of 30.

Nathan Tyson has neither the goal scoring history, assist stats or is of the age to be of genuine interest to Grayson. Malhamterrier

Don't say anything about him...most Derby fans want to see the back of him.

Was Jordyn Rhodes really injured tonight, I'm a massive Town fan but there's no smoke without fire. Tyson ok but not exactly a ready made replacement for the Jordan goal machine is he ?

Rhodes was out with a Grade 1 muscle tear in his thigh, should be back in a week at most

^^^^ Yes, he is.

Yes Jordan was injured. He had an mri scan and has a slight tear in his hamstring. This was confirmed by both Grayson and Levein (Scotland Manager). Hell of a lot of smoke a blackburn and very little fire Jordan will not sign for them, he is here till January at the very least.

Wouldn't be surprised if Arsenal come in for Jordan now RVP has gone, no smoke without fire, not heard that saying for ages :O)

TY (Town Yeti)

Town are an honest club run by honest people, if they said Rhodes was injured i'd believe them, they dont try to pull the wool over the eyes of supporters like some clubs do. Grayson wouldnt say what he said post match if they were selling him am sure. Really proud with them all last night too, even if we did lose.

Town were really unlucky. Im a cardiff fan but I was impressed by huddlesfield you came up against the best shot stopper in the league. Im sure that you will be fine this season. We (cardiff) need to improve because if im honest we should be outplaying most teams at this level if we can't control the terriers how are we going to do against the likes of blackpool and leister

Would be typical Derby sell somebody in form at the moment. Was rumours about Simeon Jackson (sorry if wrong spelling :)) on a season long loan. Would make more sense if Tyson is leaving.



17 Aug 2012 09:22:46
Villa to solve defensive problem with Joe Bennett from Middlesbough, this will be last of Villa transfers unless others can be moved on....

Would have to be a very good offer

Yours for 6m plus add ons

If joe leaves Boro, it will be to a proper premiership team with ambition, not a make the numbers team up like villa, Boro will walk the championship this year whilst villa may struggle to avoid relegation



17 Aug 2012 09:21:28
11.8mill for Gaston Ramirez! Whoah where did that come from? I can't quite hear all the haters/doubters who said we couldn't afford 6-7mill for Matt Phillips! LOL! COYS!!



17 Aug 2012 09:18:20
It would appear that Bristol City have
Signed Kevin Wilson from Celtic, so
obviously he is not going to ipswch

I'm assuming you mean MARK Wilson, who has been training with City all summer & has signed until January 13th?
As I can't see any other signings!

Not so I'm afraid, got your wires crossed
it's mark wilson city have signed

Good signing, but why only a 5 month contract ?

It's mark Wilson not Kelvin Wilson. Mark was released by Celtic he is a full back

Mark wilson



17 Aug 2012 09:13:29
ky Sports understands Southampton have agreed a club record deal with Bologna for Uruguay international Gaston Ramirez.

The 21-year-old had been approached by Tottenham, Liverpool and Inter Milan earlier this summer.

But now newly-promoted Southampton are on the verge of a huge coup by landing the midfielder, who has just had an excellent Olympic campaign for Uruguay.

Saints boss Nigel Adkins was looking for a big name attacking midfielder and had failed with a bid for PSV Eindhoven's Dutch international Jeremain Lens, but he switched his attentions to Ramirez and looks to have got his man.

Southampton chairman Nicola Cortese has brokered the deal, which is believed to be worth 15million (£11.8million).

Ramirez has confirmed he is ready to fly to England to conclude a move to St Mary's.


"Bologna will tell me on Friday if I can move," he told the Corriere dello Sport.

"The truth is that I think, yes, this time I am moving. Bologna has reached an agreement with Southampton, and there are only a few details to be found but the agreement in principle is done."

Ramirez admits that Southampton have offered him very good terms, and he is happy to become a key player for them.

"The English club has reached an agreement with me, it is the classic offer that you cannot refuse for my life as a whole and my family.

"But they believe in me in every way, I will be essential and above all they are going to grow. Southampton is a newly promoted team in the English top-flight but they will become a big team in years to come.

"They have told me they are going to build and that is very stimulating."

I guess this move destroys the whole Reading are paying there players too much and we aren't arguement. You reckon he'll be on more then the 35K a week The Pog is on?

Good move by the way. Well done.

It's in The Guardin online too!

A few papers are reporting he will be on the same as Lambert, Lallana & Rodriguez 30,000 per week

Personally I'm absolutely buzzing about this ! Beats the 15M Wolves want for Jarvis!

If true managers live and die by these decisions NA



17 Aug 2012 09:09:04

southampton have 11.8 mill bid accepted for gastn ramrez source sly sports

Haha... Do we have your attention now

Great news of Gaston Ramirez comin 2 the south coast but why anther mild field player we need DEFENDERS? I cant not see r defence copeing with the city front 5 (prove me wrong boys) hope the butner rumours r right roll on the weekend COYRS

Liverpool wanted him but would only pay 5m, his true valuation ... so why or why have saints paid double his value ? god knows... i think N A is losing it big time ... they saw him coming

"Liverpool wanted him but would only pay 5m, his true valuation ... so why or why have saints paid double his value ? god knows... i think N A is losing it big time ... they saw him coming"......What a stupid comment! It seems you are the one who has no idea about his valuation, he is worth a hell of a lot more than 5m. Some comments I've read today about this has been ridiculous!


Probably because he's only 21 and a future star he'll be worth double if he has a good season. rather spend 11.5m on ramierz than 10m on jarvis

I am a southampton supporter,but I was one of the doubters, until we sort out the CB problem, we can have ramirez, villa, and van perise up front but if we cannot defend to save our lives having a good attack will not save us. At least we have our LB at last. Good signing but need at least a GK and 2 CB by the end of the month. I am having more belief but now need those players in place for mid table to Europe place, if these signings come off, 6th or 7th place is not far off.



17 Aug 2012 08:54:02

Where are these reports can't find them?

I'm looking at the French press and I dont see this.. I would like it to be true!

Hope we can buy Jean Armel Kana Byik, he would plug up our defensive frailties. If we Get Matty Phillips as well big bonus and we would have one of the best attacks in the premier league

Loan move from who? He was released wasn't he?

How and where has Barnard said he is joining Brighton? Would he meet the quality criteria that Gus Poyet has indicated he wants in the new forward he hopes to sign?

No, he hasn't been released. He's been playing all preseason with the development squad at Saints

Going to Crawley

Barnards signed on loan with bournemouth I'll think you'll find

Albert Adohma to submitt transfer request next week after city turned down a bid from a premiership club believed to be swansea !!



17 Aug 2012 00:04:37
Swansea city are hopefull of signing Welsh international Robson-Kanu from Reading as they see him as a cheaper alternative to Bristol City's Albert Adomah.

Please do, he is so not prem quality.

Wait...Wut? HRK not prem quality....are you blind. He has grown so much as a player in the last season. His problem was lack of game time and he got it this season. He'll do fine just you wait and see.

I hope so he can't cross and once he's gone we can bring in zaha.

Wishful thinkking, I don't think so

Would be every Reading fans dream he cant cross a road

You kidding me hes quality he will push the wingers for a starting place this season. Not going to swansea

Please do, he is so not prem quality.

The problem is more having to play second fiddle to club captain actually

No mate HRK really isn't prem quality he can't cross and his touch is awful.

Can't cross? he was superb vs palace, every cross was premiership quality

One good cross in 3 seasons time to get rid

The man who just spoke is right

After watching him at mad Stad today and comparing him with Gareth McCleary- bye HRK :P

As a Swans fan i will be devestated if we got HRK in. Seen him play a couple of times for wales and reading and he is awful

I'd like to see all you guys play for a prem team.

I'll drive Robson Kanu foc and pay for the bridge. Worst winger ever to play on the wing for Reading. Saturday proved just how bad he is.

You said he cant cross but if you were at the games last season you would see the assists he made from cutting in and crossing



17 Aug 2012 00:01:13
west brom are still keen on signing danny rose on loan, also west brom are the latest club to show an interest in Geromel (source - german newspaper) wolves, sunderland and west ham also interested in signing him

City to sign:
Buszaky, if wages r ok.
and are enquiring for Kiss of Cardiff (unlikley to get)

These transfers are looking dead in the water to me, if they were going to sign they would have done it by now surly?

Absolutely no chance of signing Kiss , where do you get this from??? FM 2012??

Yes , you are not getting kiss of us , dream on

Kiss is not for the sale we just bought him perminanty

Buszacky going to Leeds & Baldock not Red enough for my liking & like Maynard he'll disappear as soon as he gets a better offer. But as we know a better offer isn't often the best option.

I have said for weeks there was no bid for baldock,it was a wind up on the forum which the press took hold off,have you heard west ham or bristol city say this deal was on.thought not

We just bought kiss why the hell would he leave to go to bristol?!?!

Norwich City have made a £4.5m bid for Austrian international and FC Basel centre half Aleksandar Dragovic.
Norwich City scouts attempted to watch the 21 year old on Wednesday but he was on the bench

Seems weird if they weren't prepared to pay 3.5 for Curtis Davies

Better player, can also play DM which we need. 2 Birds with 1 stone and all that.

Birmingham wanted 6m for Davies and Norwich offered 3.5m

Birmingham wanted 6m.

Clubs value different players differently. Wet Spam were willing to fork out 17m for Caroll but not for Holt.

Oldham athletic set to sign sheffield Wednesday's Daniel jones on a season long loan

Akpo Sodje has signed a 6 month contract with PNE. The reason the contract is short term is because Lee Trundle is out injured until January. Source -

Preston youngsters Jamie Proctor and Danny Mayor have turned down moves to Blackpool. Source - Lancashire Evening Post

Thank god if this is true holroyd is crap , div 2 is even too good for him

Mayor- sheffield Wednesday and proctor- Swansea city

I've read through the LEP and can't find the story to back up this claim! They may well turn down Blackpool and go somewhere else, (thought to be Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea) but no story as yet confirming any of this

Turned down? i don't think so. More like frightened of hard work. The sooner these 2 are gone from

Northampton please take Graham Cummins & Andy Procter aswell. PLEASE, pretty PLEASE!!!!

Mayor has signed for sheff weds look on official site

Dont think Pool were really that interested in them. They put a bid in which was accepted but they were a long shot for the development squad.......doubt the 52mins they played last Saturday set Bloomfield alight......good luck to both players

Jamie proctor has signed for swansea on official pne site

Blackpool couldnt match what they were earning at Preston, so they chose Swansea and Sheff Wednesday who both offered them more than they were already on. {Ed003's Note - Nothing to do with wages,the two kids wanted to be more than development squad players}

Eds Note is not true, they will be development players at the clubs they have gone to. Do you really think Proctor is going to walk into the Swansea team! They would of played alot more is they had gone to Blackpool this season. Instead they chose better long term propects and a better contracts. {Ed001's Note - no, the Ed's note is correct, they wanted to be first team players at Blackpool, not development players. It is not difficult to understand is it? Be a development player in the Championship or the Prem?}

Mayor chose one championship club over another. Nothing to do with being a development player! He would of got more games at Blackpool {Ed003's Note - No,he would not.}

If you think Mayor would have played more at Blackpool than Sheffield Wednesday then frankly your deluded!

He likes played in front of over 20000 fans at Sheffield instead of 5000 at Blackpool, Thats the reason FACT and same for Proctor so move on ED {Ed003's Note - ok pal,I just forgot how massive you are}

Once David Healy and Akpo Sodje complete their moves to Deepdale, Graham Cummins will join Leyton Orient as he will be 5th or 6th choice striker at best

If cummins joins orient will only be on loan

Why would Orient want to sign a centre forward that is 5th or 6th choice at Preston ? We need to get rid of players first.
If Orient do sign another player, it will almost certainly be a midfielder.


This would be a brilliant signing for The O's if it we to happen!

Cummins Brilliant ?
Orient have other priorities, like signing a good right-back, and a creative
midfield player.

Orient manager Slade to offer Mooney for Cummins.
Mooney is now surplus to Orient's requirements, and Mooney would be a brilliant signing for Preston.

Northampton set to sign Preston's Chris Holroyd on a 6 month loan

I have heard this as well

Kilmarnock sign Borja Perez one year deal today and Shiels is looking to add a loan striker with some creative transfer negotiations at European club that would pay the wages and see this as an academy for their 19-20-year-old .

Kilmarnock have approached Celtic to bring young striker Anthony Watt in on a season-long loan.

5 teams are interested in Manchester United striker Berbatov they are Newcastle,Spurs,PSG,Ajax and Bilbao deal for £12.5 million

Anderson is attracting interest from sao paulo worth around £10 million

Darren Fletcher could be given a seasons rest after still not reaching full fitness, if he become fit he may join Aberdeen on loan

Celtic and Aston Villa are interested in United defender Jonny Evans

Would love jonny evans at celtic, was solid for utd last year but wont be at paradise - far too expensive with wages etc for us unfortunetly !

Seamus :)

Evans has played at top quality level with Man. Utd however regular it was, he isn't a great defender. Could he be top quality in the SPL? 5 mil approx have Celtic got money like that?

Fletcher joing aberdeen haha. even though united are aberdeen standard but united fans have rose tinted glasses. fergie would never let him go there, all the rest is BS too

Man utd said they would accept 5 million for berbatov

Celtic, like Arsenal (To an extent), can spend 5/6 million on a player if they like, they just refuse to

Berbatov fee will not exceed 6m

The days of us, celtic spending 5-6m on a player is long gone. Think we are modeling ourselves on Ajax. Find gems cheap, develop and sell on at a substancial profit. But back to the point Celtic will and do refuse, just the situation we are in unfortunetly. Evans is the commanding centre half we desperatly need as well!

In Lennon We Trust


5 mil for Berbatov? Man U would need 10 mil at least, even if he is rubbish. They bought him for 30 mil.

Nah seamus the ony reason we dont spend 5-6 million on a player is because the spl is not like it used to be and we can win it with spending pennies however celtic could easily spend 5-6 million on a player if they wanted to

Athletic only sign Basque players so that's never going to happen.
Fiorentina are possibly in the frame
