Ive heard arsenal are interested in a couple players cavani for 25m, zaha ffor 15m, milito for 15m, diame for 4m, belhanda 12m and capaue for 10m {Ed024's Note - I'd be surprised if Arsene spent £81m, but Diame could well be on hs radar.}

Cavani is worth more than 25mill and zaha is not worth 15mill

He looks quality so if we get him and Danny Graham then I would be very happy.. we have bid for two players as will be reported tomorrow so i'm hopefull

Jackson to be loaned out and Morrison is for sale

Well it definitely won't be sean o'driscoll...



17 Jan 2013 21:45:33
Derby attempting a £300,000 bid for Gary Madine, and are also chasing down Harry Maguire from Sheffield United. {Ed003's Note - Maguire would not be cheap }

Preston North End are set to sign Robert Earnshaw from Cardiff City. Earnshaw was at Deepdale today and was said to be impressed with the setup at the club.

Where did you find this??

PNE need a striker that's good, just hope he don't pop the ball with his teeth when going for a Header :)



17 Jan 2013 21:18:30
Huddersfield to try get Vaughan on a permanent deal. Also I heard David Fox coming on loan.

Vaughan is definately going as norwich bid for two strikers. Vaughan and Morrison are available at the right price. Jackson will be loaned out



17 Jan 2013 21:13:48
Frazier campell signed for cardiff 500,000 and wears the number 25 shirt

Brayford and hunt next

Not a rumour its a fact will be released tomorrow morning



17 Jan 2013 21:13:43
Southampton set to surprise everyone by not only announcing Forren tomorrow but also Gary Hooper

No we are not, its just Forren.

No just Forren for now. I think Hooper transfer died a death long ago and we just couldn't justify shelling out so much on him when we have Lambert free scoring and a fair few back up's. I do think Astori may come off still late in the window. As others have mentioned, it may have gone quiet for now but it does remind me of the Ramirez deal a fair bit!



17 Jan 2013 20:51:32
Emmanuel pogatez is interested in a move to wolves

Should come back to the boro



17 Jan 2013 20:35:32
frazier campbell has signed for cardiff city, club will anounce it later today or tomorrow and he will wear the number 25 shirt. that's the update from cal who works with the board

Ha ha ha, Cal who works with the Board! You mean Carl who speculates on message boards! He might be right in this case but he's wrong in 99% of cases.



17 Jan 2013 20:51:31
Former Ranger striker Kris Boyd rejoin Kilmarnock to Rest of the season deal

No chance. He is in talks with an MLS team to go to the states.



17 Jan 2013 20:15:56
Manchester United could be approaching Crystal Palace for the services of the talented Zaha (20). They will kick of with a bid 6m and from there on it is unsure.

Danny Graham with a possible move to Norwich City with a bid of 5-6m after he became second choice striker to the talented Michu

If Danny graham is going for 5-6 million then SAF you need to open your wallet a little more as zaha is worth at least twice as much as graham.

CPFC will reject 6million, not enough and Man you are having a laugh



17 Jan 2013 18:46:25
Wigan sign Joel Robles from Athletico Madrid on loan till the end of the season, and Becchio is set for talks at the DW Stadium tomorrow. (Friday)

Are you sure about Becchio to Wigan, lots of talk about it but denied by both clubs, would like it to happen but not at the price some Leeds fans think they'll get for him!



17 Jan 2013 19:45:47
Kris Boyd to return to England with a move to Hull.

Ive been hearing that too!



17 Jan 2013 19:30:02
Nottingham forest along with several other championship teams are fighting to sign highly rated Bradford City strike Nakhi Wells forest intend to lodge a bid of £550 000. before the end of the week

Nahki wells rumours getting boring now he going nowhere till at least the summer his agen has stated he's happy concentrating on his football at city

17 Jan 2013 20:27:43
At least double that fee or don't bother Huddersfield are poised to bid 1m according to reports

Which will be turned down seeing as Wells has a 1.2mil release clause in his contract

City won't sell wells before the Villa game plus we don't need to sell him yet not at least until the summer. We are not strapped for cash. I know money talks but the most we will get for him is 1M and what can you get for that

Not enough. We need him. Only sell for much higher price.

Rubbish - it will take a lot more than a million...



17 Jan 2013 19:17:27
Crystal Palace fc are hot on the trail off crewe pair max clayton and byron moore as they make a late surge for automatic promotion.

Max clayton will be good not sure about the other dude



17 Jan 2013 19:06:07
Derby County are looking to bring in these three players hopefully by tuesday -

Jay Tabb (Reading FC)
Louis Saha (free agent)
Nigel Reo-Coker (free agent)

Reo-coker has too much of an ego for Clough to be interested

Saha will have too high wage demands for us to even have an interest

Tabb would fit into Cloughs style of play of high energy and a work horse so could be a small possibility of that happening

Reo-Coker is training with Leeds



17 Jan 2013 19:04:51
Hooper and Graham off to Norwich city according to a Norwich fc source...expect both to be bought for around 6m mark each

Norwich couldn't afford both...

Will be lucky if we sign one of them, can't see us getting both, be great if we did - but can't see it.



17 Jan 2013 19:01:53
Norwich have entered the race for Danny Graham with a bid of £5m.




17 Jan 2013 18:49:09
Norwich City make a bid in the region of £5m for Swansea striker Danny Graham, 27, according to tv. Graham is also understood to be subject of a bid from Sunderland.

I can see him favouring Norwich over Sunderland as he would be more likely to get a game at Norwich



17 Jan 2013 18:42:37
David Fox of Norwich to go on loan to Huddersfield. He was at Blackpool when Grayson was in charge.

I'm not sure that Grayson is in charge of anything at the moment!



17 Jan 2013 18:41:55
southampton are still rumoured to be in for Lazio forword Mauro Zarate and a bid could be on the way as talks with coutinho have gone quiete

With Southampton talks go quiet all the time. Ramirez went quiet before he signed. You just can not know with us.



17 Jan 2013 18:31:40
Southampton looking at celta vigo striker Iago Aspas. His buy out clause is set to be around £8m

Apparently already signed for Valencia

He hasn't actually signed for Valencia as Valencia have to sell players to raise funds to buy



17 Jan 2013 18:26:54
Sheffield wednesday full back daniel jones has left the club by mutual consent



17 Jan 2013 17:37:00

norwich have bid 5 million for graham



17 Jan 2013 17:30:40
Simon Grayson will return to Blackpool and take them back to the Premiership .

You can have him, We are no better than when Lee Clark was here.

Did Lee Clark get you promoted then? Must have missed that!



17 Jan 2013 17:27:54
We're (Millwall) supposedly signing Freddie sears from Colchester

Hes been linked with every league one and championship club there are.



17 Jan 2013 17:17:06
Turner is continuing his search for a striker, with two unnamed League 1 strikers (one thought to be Ashley Grimes of Rochdale), Ryan Bowman of Hereford and a free agent on his radar.

He is also set to allow Joe Anyon, Ryan Woods, Aaron Wildig or Asa Hall and Ryan Doble (if a striker is brought in) out on loan.




17 Jan 2013 16:38:41
somen tchoyi to leicster city (former wba midfielder now a free agent) very strong player



17 jan 2013 16:38:16
coventry have signed blair adams on a two and half year deal that's a fact



17 Jan 2013 15:10:46
Nakhi Wells move to Huddersfield may be hijacked by Peterborough .

17 Jan 2013 19:34:51
Nahki is going nowhere till the summer at the earliest and should Bradford get promoted he won't leave then either

Peterboro do not have the funds to capture Wells, asking Daddy for another loan player! Is the only business they will be doing this window. I would like to think Town will sign Wells, however I am confident this is just speculation. Parkinson has stated they have had no approach from any club!



17 Jan 2013 16:23:13
Yeovil have completed the signing of Joe Edwards in an 18 month contract for an undisc fee



17 Jan 2013 16:18:25
Aldershot town who are struggling for cash will sell striker Danny Hylton, Stevenage looking his likely destination



17 Jan 2013 16:15:38
Bournemouth set to announce the signing of 18 year old Aberdeen winger Ryan Fraser, a fee around £300,000 has been agreed between the clubs. AFCB are also currently agreeing personal terms to bring former Leyton Orient keep Ryan Allsop to the club. Allsop rejected 3 new contracts from the O's. Southampton defender Danny Seaborne is also set to join the club on loan until the end of the season. Seaborne has previously spent time on loan at Charlton this season and its thought the Cherries have beat off competition from several Championship clubs in order to get Danny on loan.

A rare, accurate post - all sounds spot on as far as i've heard, just waiting for confirmation of allsop and more importantly fraser, who's signature has been coveted by more than a few clubs, hope we can seal it



17 Jan 2013 15:54:53
fraizer campbell to cardiff city

Been seen at the vale today


How many strikers do Cardiff need.



17 Jan 2013 15:53:05

Maybe they could sign Hale as well. They're a good partnership.

Grandison. From the shrews

17 Jan 2013 20:49:30
Can't provide such a funny response but.................Richard Wood not reknowned for his pace. Two Rumours today regarding Championship Clubs being interested in slow-coach Wood...........strange.
Wonder which is more accurate of the two?

Wood has never let City down but I would sell him for the right offer simply because of....NOT his pace but his.....age!!



I think Palarse are 115th best supported



17 Jan 2013 15:04:33
Tresor Kandol in petrol station, morrisons morecambe.I work there and just served him.

Think about it, he's proberly filling up to get away as far as he can from Morcambe. !



17 Jan 2013 15:12:16
earnshaw to shrewsbury

Like i mentioned last week... RW has finally realised strikers don't come cheaply....the longer this saga goes the less optimistic I am.....

Nope...He's signing for Port Vale on this space



17 Jan 2013 15:00:15

17 Jan 2013 15:20:56
mvilla to sign for qpr by monday



17 Jan 2013 15:17:06

Daniel jones, sheff wed full back just left by mutual consent {Ed003's Note - a correct one,cheers mate}



17 Jan 2013 15:16:05
Southend will sign Michael Spillane from dagenham on Friday for a fee of around 20k



17 Jan 2013 15:13:15
Bristol City's Head Coach, Sean O'Driscoll is interested in bringing in Richard Wood but faces competition from Wolves for the Coventry City Defender. He's also hoping to bring Stephen Dobbie from Brighton as the Midfielder hasn't found form under Gus Poyet, Ian Holloway is also interested in.

Richard Wood is not leaving because is no one in the team to replace him.

Dobbie is not leaving he just signed

He won't leave Brighton fan

"Until now, nobody has made me any offer for ANY players so we are nice and happy."

Source: Gus Poyet's mouth

Dobbie has a young family and has not settled coming down to Brighton which I understand, he is 100% off to another club Brighton are trying to find him the best deal as he is a good guy (more than a reliable source)



17 Jan 2013 14:13:36
Reading in the hunt to sign Louis Saha after sunderland say he can leave for free

Reading are trying to sign young unpolished talent not cracked ageing 'stars' it's not how they opporate

NO they are not. i went to see our game at reading this year, even though we won they seem to me to be the strongest side in the bottom 5. not with quality but team ethic and determination. except for their captain who looked out of his depth. i hope they stay up. good club cracking stadium. and that's the view of most of my fellow man utd fans.

Our. Captain looked out of depth? He destroyed rafael so bad he got subbed 30 minds in



17 Jan 2013 14:12:55
High flying Championship side Crystal Palace are in talks to take out of favour Florent Malouda on loan until the end of the season.

How muck of his wages do Palace have to pay ? he is on 100,000.00 p/w at Chelsea.



17 Jan 2013 14:08:13
Former Hull boss Nick Barnby, Paul Ince and Guy whittingham are the top three targets to be Portsmouth

Until you sort your mess out and come out of administration you cannot appoint a new manager. Its Guy until your future is sorted.



17 Jan 2013 14:06:51
Crystal Palace are set to strengthen their front line by bringing in Swansea forward Leroy Lita. Lita will sign on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal.

Could have sworn he'd gone out on loan to Middlesbrough?



17 Jan 2013 14:06:25
Paul Benson will not be joining Cheltenham Town. Wages on offer are not what the player wants he favours a move to Portsmouth.

He is being greedy



17 Jan 2013 14:05:10
Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson is set to free up a place in the striking department in order to bring in a new forward.
Lee Novak has been told he will be behind a number of current forwards at the club now and will be allowed to move away from the club on loan. A loan deal from Barnsley has been accepted with a view to a permanent deal if the Reds stay up.
Grayson has freed up Novak in order to bring in Carlisle attacker Rory Loy to club on on a 18 month deal.

Why would town want a striker who hasnt done anything special in league 1?

Grayson should free up the managers possition and go back to Blackpool,
I think he is loosing the plot allowing Novak to leave,
Hoyle get Karl robinson from MK dons,

Can't see him being loaned to anyone and certainly not Barnsley. Out of contract in June and he can open negotiations with a new club now. Town may try to use him as part of any transfer bid for Wells but this is unlikely to sit well with Novak.

Yes a very fast and skilful winger/striker, he makes goals but does not score many. The problem arrives as he has only just returned after breaking his leg and the 26th of December 2011. So no manger will take a risk before taking stock of the effects on his playing style, btw Carlisle fan

No chance will that happen

17 Jan 2013 22:05:07
Rory loy pub player youve went to far with that one



17 Jan 2013 14:00:57
derby want southend defender ryan cresswell



17 Jan 2013 14:00:29
Wolves have made a bid for Barnsley midfielder Tomasz Cywka.



17 Jan 2013 13:57:08
Daniel Bogdanovic is set to sign a one month deal with Portsmouth on Friday

Who isn't signing on at Portsmouth? its like the dole office down there!



17 Jan 2013 13:51:45
Newcastle, Fulham & Everton are all keeping tabs on Huddersfields highly rated U-18 creative midfielder Duane Holmes.

Duane Holmes is a fantastic prospect, have watched him for a couple of years in training and his has the lot. Needs to grow and put on a bit of weight but he is destined for the very top. No way will he be let go at this stage in his career.

Great player it seems, will be a top player in the future, hopefully we can hold onto him for that future!



17 Jan 2013 13:47:48
Cheltenham have made an enquiry to take Rotherham striker Kayode Odejayi on loan.



17 Jan 2013 13:44:46
Derby County are close to agreeing a deal to bring Mansfield striker Matt Green to Pride Park.
A bid of £350,000 is thought to have been accepted and he has been offered a 2 and a half year contract.

Good luck to him never got a chance to show what he could do at Oxford a lot of oufc fans liked him

Hope this is true although it's probably not. He seems like a more talented Theo Robinson.



17 Jan 2013 13:25:06
rumours around the north east are danny graham to sign for sunderland killganon has placed on his site good luck frazer on your move to cardiff and the mags are looking at darren bent can't see him getting wages though



17 Jan 2013 13:20:42
Rumours are jackson to wolves for £1,000,000, could be the extra money to fund hooper! And saha left sunderland on a free.. Possibility?



17 Jan 2013 13:01:27
Swindon selling spree to start with James Collins heading to Leicester City for £100,000.
Matt Ritchie should finally tie-up his deal with Bournemouth. Simon Ferry is wanted by Dundee United and a fee of around £25,000 could be enough to sway the cash-strapped Wiltshire outfit.

If you can get simon ferry for 25 gs WIGAN, READING, QPR SHOULD GO FOR HIM.

Jumping on the bandwagon before your in possession of the full facts just like a certain nation radio station.... Trust me Ritchie, for the 100th won't be going to Bournemouth.... Feel free to take Lee Cox and we will even throw in a bit of Perspex in for the away dugout to keep uncle Eddie happy !

Utter rubbish, there will be no fire sale, Swindon do not need to sell anyone they are just looking for new inbestors.

And anyway Ferry is worth 10 times that much and Bournemouth could not afford Ritchie in the Summer and can't now.

And we paid 200k for Collins why would we take half that now?

Obviously a rival fan, probably an Oxford fan on a wind up.

25000? Don't honk so mate! The debt is to the owners, so still technically not desperate to sell! Just looking for a new owners!

Swindon will have a new owner within the next few days, all key members of the squad will stay.

17 Jan 2013 18:32:08
although i agree we may see departures from the county ground, youre going to need to stick another 0 on those fees

Ritchie to afcb eh, not this old chestnut again, give it a rest, this rumour's been going on and on and on forever, not going to happen, swindon's financial problems or not

We don't need Ritchie, wer're getting a much better player in 18 year old Ryan Fraser

You can keep Ritchie as AFCB will hopefully be signing a far better prospect in Ryan Fraser tomorrow.... UTCIAD

Nonsense. Believe me if Richie was avialable the queue of championship clubs would be round the block



17 Jan 2013 12:11:49
Bradford manager Phil Parkinson is trying to hijack Paul Bensons move to Cheltenham by upping the offer to cash strapped Swindon and offering improved personal terms to the player.

Benson is no longer joining Cheltenham on loan. Swindon need to raise some money and won't countenance paying any of his salary if he goes on loan.

They can offer what they want, the guy doesn't want to move north !

Yates has already said that Benson won't be signing for Cheltenham.

Bradford City have already signed Andy Gray, so unless a striker leaves the club (which I can't see happening) then I highly doubt Benson would sign. Especially since he rejected Bradford City a few weeks ago because he wanted to stay down south. He would be a good signing but can't see it happening.

What a load of rubbish just signed andy gray. b.c.f.c

The benson deals dead

Keep up keep up.... Bensons not going to Cheltenham

Swindon do not need the money, they need a poor player off the wage bill..simple.

And who can blame him for not wanting to move up North!

God you lot forget easily he did ok for you last season no moans or groans then



17 Jan 2013 12:26:36
Who will be the next Blackpool Manager?


Post who you want!

17 Jan 2013 13:51:46
Graham Westley please :-)

The Nolan sisters

Micky Adams (as a Sunderland fan) have always rated him think his reputation was tarnished unfairly due too Leicester/Spain thing but very very good manager. hope Pool get sorted soon and back too the prem class fans nd good crak

The nature boy, Ric Flair. WOOOOOOOOO!

None i want ian back

Thommo will get the job till end of season. Palace will sack ollie for not getting promoted and mr oyston will offer the chance for ian to come back and finish what he started last year. Premier league football for blackpool. This will happen i know it will!

Personally, I would love Thompson to have a crack of the whip but I would have liked Karl Robinson. If Thompson gets a 'no' then maybe someone young hungry and knows a thing or 2 about defending and passing.

There will no appointment this month. Oyston will not make any money avaliable for tranfers etc..

17 Jan 2013 20:25:53
kevin blackwell {Ed003's Note - how about Curbishley}

Well since recently the manager who we were going to get went to a club starting with be I would say that we should get the next best coyle damn only if we sealed the guardiola deal



17 Jan 2013 12:24:11
Blackpool players leaving this month:-

Baptiste (Forrest/Leicester/Wigan/Reading/Southampton) all interested

Ince (Swansea/Liverpool/Newcastle/Southampton) all interested

Matty Phillips
(Southampton to bid again for the winger)

(Crystal Palace have made enquiries)

(Crystal Palace interested in a deal. Loan then Permanent)

These Squad members looking for deals away from Blackpool...

Bruna (Transfer/Loan)
Eastham (Loan)
Caprice (Loan)
Bignot (Transfer/Loan)
Kettings (Loan)
Robertson (Loan)
Ferguson (Transfer)
Noguera (Loan)

I would like to see Bruna given a chance in the first team

Baptiste is not even close to being a premier league player and is certainly not on Southampton's radar.

Yes bruna deserves a go

Are The Chuckle Brothers Doing A season on Blackpool pier . I nominate them



17 Jan 2013 12:15:08
Blackpool to ask permission to speak to Simon Grayson today!

Please be true Grayson is boring and see who is available for playing the ball on the deck and bring in permenant deals not time and money wasting loans



17 Jan 2013 11:43:13
David Cotterill is on his way out of Donny with a move to Wolves to re-unite with Dean Saunders



17 Jan 2013 11:37:22
Reading rumoured to be the club looking to take Yann M'Vila on loan with option to buy at the end of the season. It's unlikely he will choose Reading, but they are a better option than QPR.

The club won't loan him with a risk of not selling if a club pays upfront now

Newcastle was a better option than QPR but money Talks that's why Remy went and that's why Reading have no chance competing against QPR for players

Absolute cobblers we don't want him! QPR will get him as they are throwing money around like its going out of fashion, all i can say is there will be some quality players in the Championship next season!

How are they are a better option than QPR?

17 Jan 2013 16:35:36
Totally agree, why loan someone like that with risk of him being injured and not being able to get a fee. He will sign for QPR

Actually QPR are a better option than Reading by a mile. Even though they will go down money talks and QPR seem to spend unlimited amounts of it

Qpr will do a Portsmouth



17 Jan 2013 11:32:10
Just to clarify, Danny Welbeck will NOT be joining Southampton on loan until the end of the season. However they will be signing CB Forren on a 4-year-deal. Expected to be announced in the next few days. There is no chance of us signing Tom Ince or Matt Phillips as Blackpool are keen to hang onto key players, hence why they're rejecting all of Liverpool's calls. A wide man will definitely be brought in and also they're trying to persuade Punch to sign a new deal.


And astori.........?

Finally the first southampton supporter with any sense every southampton supporter read that look they won't go



17 Jan 2013 11:26:54
Simeon Jackson to Wolves for about 2m to help finance bringing Hooper into Norwich from Celtic.

Hooper has stated he'll be a Celtic player at least till the end of the season.

2M is quite a lot for him to be honest

No he hasnt.

Jackson runs around like a Whippet but has the strength of a Mole Rat and the goal scoring talent of a Walrus.

Hooper is much better, hope we get him.

Doesn't mean we can't sell Jackson and still put the money towards trying to sign Hooper in the summer. He will leave sooner or later

I really do not think we will bring in Hooper, he will wait until January to leave. It does concern me that If we sell Jackson and holt was to get injured again. Who have we got left? Morrison ?

But money talks, so not too Norwich till the summer then. Reading who are desperate, Villa or Sunderland might throw some money at him.

Ive read in local paper the bid for jackson is 1m

Simeon Jackson 2 Mil? Do people have money to burn?.....have watched him for the Canadian National team when he has played and I can't understand how he is on a PL team, an Internationalist and now being touted as worth 2 Mil? Wow the silly season right enough.


17 Jan 2013 20:23:36
Norwich fan in peace, we've bid 5million for graham from Swansea, the talk down here is if it doesn't go through we will bid for your boy Hooper, there was also talk of celtic being interested in our boy holt, it's actually the talk of the town the now, if yous sell Hooper, holt could be bought for as little as a million, as he's struggling to get a game, {Ed003's Note - 'talk of the town the now' isn't that more of a Scottish term rather than a Norfolk one? don't bite anyone.}

Reading are ready to smash their transfer record by paying £8.3million for Celta Vigo star striker Iago Aspas. Although reports in Spain suggest he has already agreed terms with Valencia over a move in the summer.

Mcdermott said we have been priced out we have no ambition we need to spend big or we will be going down

Don't get me wrong hate both Reading and QPR, but why is Reading a better option than QPR?

Don't get me wrong hate both Reading and QPR, but why is Reading a better option than QPR?

Unless your allergic to blue and white hoops I can't understand why. Two most unthreatening clubs in the football league. Reading have spent most of their life in lower leagues, have been built up over time by a local business man and built on youth and unpolished lower league players. Qpr have history and again is a small family club .. Although recently has been acting like billy ones but at its roots still ok

How can you hate reading? what have they ever done? been smart financially? overachieved again and again?

17 Jan 2013 20:47:45
true we need to start spending big.



17 Jan 2013 10:50:37
Hearing Southampton and QPR are trying to hijack the Hooper deal, heard that southampton have offered 6.5m

I don't think saints will get him, this rumor has been going on for to long.

Very unlikely to happen as gary hooper has guaranteed champions league football for the future at Celtic and not sure neil lennon will let one of his most valuable assets go in January.

Saints hijack the Hooper deal??

They have only been speaking to Celtic for around 1 year re Hooper, who is well connected with Adkins.

17 Jan 2013 16:37:17
If the price is right he will be sold! Money talks

We (saints) have tried and failed to get him in the last two windows, were not exactly hijacking the deal but just persevering. Although we a defender!

Would be massively surprised if Saints bid or him.

Have some decent strikers already, and only play with 1 up nowadays anyway. He would rarely get a game.

Saints will always be "after" Hooper because of the connection with Adkins, whether we actually are is a different matter.



17 Jan 2013 10:50:22
Huddersfield Town forward Lee Novak will not be offered a new deal in the Summer and is attracting intrest from Peterbrough United.

Do a deal with Boyd coming the the other way.

I would rather swap novak and some money for Boyd than Welss to be honest



17 Jan 2013 10:44:48
Sheffield Wednesday to sign highly rated Rotherham midfielder Ben Pringle. Rotherham will take the owls ex premier league star Martin Taylor as part of the deal.

Derby fan-He was a promising young guy who works hard when we signed him from a local team but isnt up to the championship stanard he will be a good league 1/2 player though so he's good but not highly rated

17 Jan 2013 15:57:22
I am not 100% sure of the regulations but Martin Taylor has played for Watford and Sheff Wed this year. Can he play for a 3rd club in a season?

Owls keep trying to buy Rotherham players and still fail..Pringle is not for sale..the owls will fail in this like they failed to get Le Fondre..



17 Jan 2013 10:39:43
Colchester United manager Joe Dunne is reportedly close to signing 2 experienced players ahead of Saturday's relegation battle with Hartlepool. One looks set to be striker Jabo Ibehre and while the U's have had a bid accepted for another although personal terms are yet to be agreed.



17 Jan 2013 10:26:43
Unfortunately, it sounds like Huddersfield are going to test Bradford City's resolve with a cash plus Lee Novak deal for Nahki Wells. I'm not sure how much cash is involved but with Novak's contract about to run out, I would still think it to be £1m+ with add ons.

Novak would be interested and likewise City in a proven goalscorer in lower league football, which would soften the blow of losing Wells.

Novak would score a lot of goals at this level - would be a good deal for Bradford

Not sure who'd be getting the better deal? Well's utterly unproven, Novak uttterly out of his depth!

Nahki wells is not in the same league as Novak, Just becouse he`s scored a couple of goals against prem opposition he`s not worth 1 million.he can't even score against Barnet what would he do against the likes of Cardiff, or leicester on a regular basis.(Nothing)Grayson stick with Novac and inprove him, build your team around him, 100% every game, you are a coach arent you?tm



17 Jan 2013 10:00:58
Jackson apparently on the move to Wolves for a fee rumored to be around the 1 million mark, with the money from his sale going towards the supposed Hooper deal. If accepted then it is also believed that Hooper would initially be offered wages in the region of 30k a week, rising depending on his success in the EPL. (Various sources and rumors, read into it as you wish.)

Well your sources are the the morning papers, so not exactly reliable. probably right on the interest though but at 1m, that would be a snip in this market. think more like 2m-3m i would hope.

17 Jan 2013 16:41:50
So, Hooper comes in on 30k, then all of a sudden all the other players start demanding more money and Norwich nearly lost their skipper becasue they wouldn't pay him what he was worth. People keep saying he would go to Norwich because it would give him a better chance of getting into the England team, can someone remind me how many caps Grant Holt got last year despite scoring all those goals in the EPL. Sure he was the top scoring englishman in the league or if not top then he wasnt far away and he didn't get a sniff. Hooper will leave but I don't think it will be to Norwich and certainly not in the next 2 weeks.

Rumours are coming from germany that javi martinez has expressed his desire to leave munich at the end of the year due to guardiola's arrival and his hatred towards him. The latest rumour is that he has signed a pre-contract with rochdale, the team he supported as a boy and is very keen to work under rochdale manager john coleman as it is rumoured javi has a scouse tinge to his spanish accent.

Danny graham to Sunderland bid now in



17 Jan 2013 09:10:49
Sky Blues defender Richard Wood is it sign for Championship side Wolverhampton.



17 Jan 2013 09:36:20
Nakhi Wells to Huddersfield in swap with lee Novak {Ed039's Note - Dont see Novak going to Bradford)

There is no way that we would sell Wells to a rival, it's not like we need the money. Novak would be a good signing and he this is true though there would have to be at least 1million involved, that is how important he is to us. League 2 or not, he is one fantastic player.

Got that story from local paper so why not say that bcfc won't sell till summer at least? Wish full thinking on behalf of terriers

Since when are huddersfield our rival we mate hate the but there a little up the football league to call them our rivals. If Novak is involved in the Bid i would say a million is pushing it but 750k wouldn't be far off the mark.

Huddersfield and Bradford are hardly rivals being 2 leagues apart anymore. Novak would be a good fit in league 2, he's proven at league 1 level last year he had 17 goals and 12 assists

Since when were bradford rivals to us? local derby but leagues apart

17 Jan 2013 11:42:35
Why on Earth would Novak go to league 2. Most L1 clubs would snap him up in a heart beat. Why are Huddersfield your rival. York, Rotherham, Barnet, Dagenham are you rivals

Town are not our rivals, they might be next door to us but not our rivals .......if i was picking a hated enemy it would be burnley not town . you are in the championship and we are in league 2 .
We will not sell Nahki till the summer unless he gets loaned back to us, we are looking decent in the league and the added bonus of the villa game and possible wembley . Novak will turn us down anyway try again

Why do Bradford need to sell Nakhi Wells? Because league 2 generates about as much cash as a Big issue seller & you lot have been down there for what, 4 seasons now? A cup run doesn't generate the kind of money for the club to live off for years, or clear debt, so don't be fooled in thinking that your 'assets' will not be sold because, as we know all too well, money talks.. Rhodes 8m.. Gone!



17 Jan 2013 09:24:59
Graham wants to sign for Sunderland and probably will.
Campbell could end up at Hull, Swansea or Cardiff. Better business for FC than for Sunderland.

If graham goes who ever gets him has got a 10-15 goal a season prem striker campbell showed promise but has not lived up to it so it would be very good buissness for sunderland but who knows if he was playing in a good team like the swans he might live up to his billing

It looks like campbell is going to cardiff



17 Jan 2013 09:07:49
Loaned Sunderland defender Blair Adams is to sign permanently with Coventry City.

Has signed two and year deal

Job done, 2.5 year deal signed today, good player good signing

He has signed a 2.5year deal excellent news for sky blues fans a good quality left back from a premier league team he will be key to our promotion push well done mark robbins

17 Jan 2013 08:50:00
Coventry are expected to sign young Sunderland fullback Blair Adams. Adams has impressed City supporters and manager Mark Robins, since joining on loan 3 months ago.
Robins has commented "We are in negotiations. Hopefully, he will be our player in the next 24 hours."

He has signed 2.5years permanent deal excellent news for sky blues fans a good quality left back from a premier league team

Confirmed, I saw him



17 Jan 2013 09:04:54
Robert Earnshaw spotted in the stands at Coventry City when they faced Tranmere Rovers. Earnshaw is in talks with joining the Sky Blues on a loan or transfer for the Summer.

17 Jan 2013 19:46:01
Hope so, would be a cracking signing.....



17 Jan 2013 08:15:47
Huddersfield Town tracking young chris dawson from leeds after his hat trick in fa youth cup last night {Ed039's Note - Impressive display as well from what I have read)

Dawson also stand out in most games and at training every week and is being tracked by his own club ! He is very unlikely to be loaned out as he is very well thought of at LUFC. Ist team player without doubt at some point in his career.

17 Jan 2013 16:34:56

Some sad Udders fan trying to Troll us!

Absolutely no way Chris Dawson would be allowed to leave Leeds. He will be in the first team this season. Looks to be the best prospect coming through in a very long time



17 Jan 2013 08:08:47
Sources close to the club say that Barnet have had offerS accepted for Rotherhams Lionel Ainsworth and Matt Tubbs.

Tubs not even at Rotherham,,,,,, yet ;)!

Tubbs doesn't play for Rotherham :/

Signing ainsworth and tubbs.. Didn't mean to imply both from rotherham



17 Jan 2013 07:48:21
Frazier Campbell's being chased by Cardiff and Leicester.
Kaka may be released from Real Madrid this January.
Kevin Ellison could join Notts County.
Big Rafa at has had a job application turnt down, after Guaridola looks set too join Bayren Munchen at the end of the season. {Ed039's Note - Guardiola "doesnt look set to join" Bayern at the end of the season. He will take over and has agreed a deal)

Leicester are not in for Campbell, they've outlayed for Wood who has impressed since joining, have Nugent on top form and more than adequate support from Waghorn and Futacz



17 Jan 2013 07:48:11
city in talks with norwich city to sign forward simeon jackson and defender ryan bennett in a swap deal for albert adomah and liam fontain. deal to be confirmed in next few days

Ryan Bennett cost us over 3m and has a big future at the club and seeing as we don't have enough strikers at all this won't happen. Do you really think either player would give up the prem for a dog fight

You might get Jackson, but Ryan Bennett, never in a million years.We paid over 3million for him.

Jackson off to Wolves 1m

1 mill Norwich got some good money for him

Why would we sell our 2nd/3rd choice CB? Get real! Bennett would cost around 5m min. now

17 Jan 2013 20:26:55
Maybe a switch for Davies as well.



17 Jan 2013 00:16:19
Wes fletcher and Kevin long both expected to join league
One strugglers Portsmouth on one month loan deals,
Long was at Pompey at the start of the season

I really feel sorry for you guys,, i am a united fan but pompey is a team i always look to see how they are doing cause tbh you are the most passionate fans in england and when the club get out off the messy situation hopefully one day there back in premier league ;-)

You can keep your premier league. give me real, honest football of the lower leagues anyday

Thanks mate, we all hope the same and want a quick but long lasting resolution. :)

Trouble is when you spend money you aren't got this is what happens, Were ever Harry has been follows Admin FACT Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Southampton, Spurs will prob be OK but as for QPR unless they stay up they will go into admin as well, big risk Tony Fernandez is taken.

You can't really blame redknapp if he stayed with portsmouth they would still be in premier league and i know you bought a load of players for a load of money but if he didn't do that then they would of been relegated that year and he won the FA cup which was brilliant and i feel he should help them out and loan a few good players in QPR reserves and help them out a bit

We couldn't afford Redknapp any longer, let alone the overpriced players he signed



17 Jan 2013 00:15:10
inigo calderon about to sign for bristol city from brighton.
bristol city are also signing kyle cfadzean and a unnamed premier league centreback from chelsea on loan

Utter nonsense.

Caldron won't go to city it's not a bigger club

Calderon, not playing as much as he would like, but really don't see him dropping that far down. Still a class player

Calde won't go to Brizzle, he's loving it being part of the Spanish Armada at Brighton.

Well how come he was seen at failand this morning?



17 Jan 2013 00:08:05
Middlesbrough are about to sign up young Irish striker Neil Lowry from ballymena for around 25K he has been on trial at the club and club scouts and the club boss tony Mowbray have been really impressed and rate him very highly

We have main if he was to come it would be end ov the season buy anyway he's 19 so would not be a first team player he's nwt flash any how

How would anybody possibly know if he's "nowt flash"? the last i checked ballymena haven't been all over the tv over here and there's very little information about him on the internet. are you a ballymena season ticket holder? we've had a history of recruiting players direct to the academy rather than the first team - one of them being rhys williams who's turned out to be one of our best players and has captained the club. kevslug.

Yes iam from ireland pal and yes he's nwt flash so iam in the kno on this one main 100 times better and same age so what you checked him on youtube didn't even think he would be on it in truth unless now he's gunna be sum world beater

17 Jan 2013 18:29:47
News today, Boro are going to invite Louis Saha to train with us from Monday with a view of giving him a short term contract. The source my girlfriends brother, who's on the scouting team at Boro. Watch this space. I've Also heard roamers that reading and Southampton in for bailey. 1.5m, which if true should give us cash towards dorrens! Or a possible downing loan loan, tho this is unlikely now. Come on Boro big 3 points tomorrow ! Red army!

17 Jan 2013 19:48:12
Albert Adomah could move to the boro will be over the moon if true up the boro for 2morra



16 Jan 2013 23:45:56
Colchester manager Joe Dunne is close to adding a defender and two strikers to his squad in a battle to keeping United up in League 1.
The defender is thought to be Sheffield Wednesday player Martin Taylor. Taylor hasn't featured much this season for the Championship side and the former Premier League man could sign on loan until summer.
Dunne is very close to signing Stockport striker Danny Hattersley. Hattersley has impressed Dunne this campaign and could sign an 18 month deal at United.
The second forward is Rhys Griffiths from Plymouth who will sign for a nominal fee on a 18 month contract also.

17 Jan 2013 13:46:17
You can have Rhys Griffths he is aboustly rubbish having him is the we (Plymouth) are in the relegation battle !!

Plymouth have signed gozie ogwu on a months youth loan from reading with an option of extending to end of season if the two clubs agree played 17 times for yeovil last season scoring three in that time but also played in the conference second half of same season and scored 4 in 9 games he's an aeriel threat at 6 ft 2 . argyle have been busy and have also signed anthony charles on a contract until the end of season the 31 year old left back has played 11 times for northampton this season but has recently been released.

17 Jan 2013 16:06:24
Northampton CB and Reading Striker have joined argyle today!



16 Jan 2013 23:39:41
QPR will see a player leave before the transfer window ends but will also see yet another player join.
Winger Junior Hoilett has been told he can leave if a sum of £5 million can be reached. Sunderland are thought to be leading the chase after Martin O'Neill declared his interest in the summer regarding the Canadian international.
Coming into Loftus Road will be Iago Falque. The Spaniard playmaker currently plays for Tottenham and Rangers boss Harry Redknapp was the man who brought him to England whilst at White Hart Lane.

17 Jan 2013 13:19:37
I very much doubt it. A lightweight ball player in midfield who couldn't get a game at Southampton in the Championship when he went their on loan in last January's transfer window.

Hoilett is injured and i still think he can play a massive part in qpr staying up.
