17 Dec 2012 18:27:20
Middlesbrough will only bring in new players in January as replacements for any players being sold.

McManus will stay as a Boro player until the end of the season because thats when his large salary contract runs out. He will only look at loan deals with Boro still paying part of his wages until then.

Boro would listen to offers for McDonald, however with him playing well this season they are no longer in a rush to move him on until the summer. Reading could be tempted in taking a risk on him.



17 Dec 2012 18:27:17
Celtic will take Houston Dynamo striker Cam Weaver and FC Dallas central defender Bobby Warshaw on trial before the end of December.

Wesley Thomas(permanent)- Bournemeth
Jon Taylor- Shrewesbury

Who and who. But said the same when thomas came and look at him now

Its up to eddie Howe , but Thomas wont be staying at Blackpool fact , Eddie wants him to push us to the championship . Impact sub , blackpool pay crap wages , we all know that .....we are loaded .



17 Dec 2012 17:20:15

Reading Eye Roman Pavelychenko

Good luck with that one!



17 Dec 2012 16:56:26
Barnes unsettled at present, Peterborough, Barnsley and Sheffield United monitoring and may make move in January. Poyet happy to let him go if he can get striker in and CMS stays. Fee for Barnes around 450-500k I understand. Source - from within Club

Does tick all the boxes posh look at, but would imagine he will overlook peterborough in a move away from there,

I'd love to have Ashley Barnes at Sheffield United, but this will never happen. We don't have that much spare cash and we already have far too many strikers.




17 Dec 2012 16:51:41
Nottingham forest are set to sign man city youngster Alex nimely for fee of around 900,000

Where is the money coming from?.

There billionaire owner. The reason late wages was due to a problem with bacs and the card being declined was down to the card details being wrong given. These things are easy to find out with the use of google.
Do you honestly think a club owned by someone with so much wealth, would have a problem with a credit card??

Lol jealous fan, look at all the money invested already.. and just about to have 2 giant screens in at the cg score updates etc..
more money than you could dream of at your club



17 Dec 2012 16:47:37
French paper L'Équipe has an article stating that Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in French Under 21 star Damien Le Tallec.

He currently plays for Hoverla Uzhhorod but fancies a move to an English club.



17 Dec 2012 15:48:08
Shrewsbury Town winger Jon Taylor has attracted the interest of several clubs including Burnley and Blackpool.

Shrewsbury Town are in talks with Charlton Athletic over a loan move for striker Leon Clarke.



17 Dec 2012 15:38:48
John Stead to Crystal Palace in January as back-up to Glenn Murray

Is he not set to sign for Leeds Utd in January.

No, that is not the case.

Surely Palace can do better than this?

You can have him from a Bristol city fan



17 Dec 2012 15:28:59
Erik Larsen recently watched cheap talent in Ligue 1 and has brought Rennes midfielder Romain Alessandrini to Michael Laudrup's attention. Alan Curtis will watch this weekend against AC Ajaccaio.

Doubt that as Swansea have enough quality midfield players
Their need is at Centre back cover and Striker and just maybe a 4th Winger that ML wanted at the start of the season



17 Dec 2012 13:27:53
There are some big BIG changes coming to Swindon Town FC, Andrew Black has been negotiating with a very wealthy Arabian investor, who has decided he no longer wants to invest in the club and now wants to be the outright owner, currently negotiating on ownership.

When this happens in the next two months, Paolo will be sacked, William patey has been unimpressed by Paolo's lack of confidentiality with the press, this will now be his downfall, Swindon fans will not be happy with the manager being lined up to replace Paolo, Ian Dowie has been approached and is rumoured to be waiting in the wings.

There will also be some playing staff changeds.

I think you have posted this already. Worry about your own club rather than ours.

More rubbish you must live with the fairies. Frank Lampard will be our next player/manager and John Terry Goalkeeping coach ha ha

You have as much hope of a outright buyout than swindon selling sand to the arabs

No chance! Paolo Di Canio will stay at least for another 2 seasons.

Another imaginary billionaire is it swindon? Zzzzzzzz

If I was a Billionaire - I'd think about buying Swindon.......................NOT



17 Dec 2012 16:29:54
Romain Alessandrini will join Swansea or Newcastle in January!

Wouldn't be surprised to see this lad join the French Revolution at Newcastle.

He only signed for Rennes in June



17 Dec 2012 15:25:47
Swansea remain interested in Braga striker Eder and will go straight in with 6m bid as early as January 1st.

Would be a good signing



17 Dec 2012 14:51:28
Millwall will not increase their bid for chris wood and chairman JB hopes that wba will accept our bid, loads of teams have asked about wood but we really want him. We have made an informal bid for a striker but he wouldnt say who. So we have bidded a million and other clubs with money want him as well so i reckon we wont sign wood.

Millwall have had their bid of £1m plus accepted by WBA for Wood and he will sign on the 1st January NOLU MIIIIII



17 Dec 2012 14:36:34

17 Dec 2012 13:41:20
Adebayo Akinfenwa of Northampton is a transfer target for Crawley and several other league 1 clubs.



17 Dec 2012 13:02:51
The local newspaper website today reports that Gus Poyet wants to spend big in January transfer window on a striker or 2. Rumours are that one of Gus's targets is Connor Wickham.
Also, I can confirm that that I have been told from an extremely reliable source that Gus has also looked into the possibility of signing LA Galaxy forward Robbie Keane on loan.



17 Dec 2012 12:40:57
Southend Manager Paul Sturrock is contemplating a move to Bristol Rovers after being told he is their number one candidate. Sturrock still has a house in the West country and is thought to be infavour of the move.

It really does amaze me how stupid some people can be sometimes. One speculative comment on ShrimperZone with no foundation whatsoever and lo-and-behold its posted on here lol. Totally false rumour, no chance of it happening whatsoever. Infact if it does I'll do a streak at Southend's next home game after Sturrock's departure.....



17 Dec 2012 12:27:43
Southampton looking at Wolfsburg's Simon Kjaer. The Danish centre-back is still unsettled in Germany.

He just signed a new contract so he's definitely not moving any time soon!

He seems happier but there is nothing on the VFL website to suggest a new contract.



17 Dec 2012 11:55:22
Luton Town to sign Jonathan Smith from York in January



17 Dec 2012 11:46:40
Jack Cork to Fulham for 2.5 million

HAHA oh that's funny, not gonna happen. Worth WAY more than £2.5m anyway.

Great young player love to have him at the hammers

Staying at Saints, not going anywhere!

Don't be daft. He's considered integral hub of Saints midfield and definately wont be leaving anytime soon.

Hope not. went to school with him, horrible kid.



17 Dec 2012 11:40:42
Haven't they just bought a Brazilian left back who joins up with the team in January?



17 Dec 2012 11:22:28
Ed is it true Sunderland are looking at J Bostock and C Davies (Barnsley) in Jan also hearing the Hooper
deal is a no no he'll either sign for
Celtic long term or Livepool in summer {Ed001's Note - I have no idea about Bostock, but I am sure there is an interest in Davies, not convinced they will move for him in January though.}



17 Dec 2012 11:16:07
PNE defender Chris Robertson set to sign for Cheltenham Town in January.

Dnt think so he is gettin better with every game



17 Dec 2012 10:56:56
Warnock to make a move for John guidetti in loan in January

Doubt leeds will get him premier clubs in
England and Germany want him

He's going to middlesbrough to help moggas promotion push to the EPL he will replace the outgoing scott mcdonald whos off to wigan

Leeds, Middlesborough or a host of top european clubs hmm tough choice




17 Dec 2012 10:29:27
ryan bertrand to west brom on loan for the rest of the season due to steve clarkes chelsea links

I doubt it considering Ashley Cole will be leaving Chelsea in Jan and Chelsea will need Bertrand at left back.




17 Dec 2012 09:49:00
Leicester have been linked with Chris Wood, Fraizer Campbell and possibly Charlie Austin



17 Dec 2012 09:43:01

Heard Forest after Chris Wood in Jan, also seen we have put a bid of 1.3mil in not sure about the bid but great potential signing! {Ed039's Note - I think Leicester just had a similar bid rejected for him a couple of days ago)



17 Dec 2012 07:35:01
Norwich City are reportedly keen on signing Brighton duo Craig Mackail-Smith and Liam Bridcutt

No they are not. Next cow pat rumour.

^I'm a Brighton fan, but yes they definitely are in for them... doesn't mean we'll let them go though.

Yes they are its in the newspapers.
lets sell CMS for 5m and get someone who can find the net goodbye craig

Decent squad players. Wouldnt want to spend anymore than 2 million for them BOTH.

Yes they are, with Norwich Villa and Fulham all looking at Bridcutt. Don't believe me? Check Sky Sports News!

They are not going anywhere unless Norwich pay 5 or 8 million for them

Another bored supporter , dreaming up names



17 Dec 2012 07:27:57
reading fcs alex pearce is refusing to sign a new contract due to the weekly wage being offered and wants his salary to be in line with other top earners at the club that were signed in the summer and will leave on a free in the summer or for a small fee in jan likely destination liverpool

He will sign a contract



17 Dec 2012 02:08:46
Nottingham Forest Chairman Fayez Al
Hasawi has pulled rank and is
determined to have the team play
Premier League next season.
Likely to see a famous ex LA Galaxy
star be signed in January for a last
hurrah, as well as a winger known as
the best player ever to represent
Both players are nearly at the end of
their careers, so will not break the
bank and are disposable if Forest
fail to gain promotion this season.
Also likely to see an exodus of 1st
team players whose contracts fall due
but are not considered Premier League
capable next year. DEX hint.hint.

There is no chance of the first player mentioned coming,he wants a bigger club and wallet.



17 Dec 2012 01:46:59
