  News from Goodison, the only transferes into everton this year will be

Kyle Naughton to EFC
Stephen Defour to EFC

Cardiff will sell us Joe Ledley in the January transfer 2 million before he becomes a free agent
Anichebe on loan as a peacemaker.

The Big news is that EFC did try for Young but he will soon start a battle between Chelsky and MU. City may make a late bid with SWP in part exchange.


Whatch this space
  Everton will sign Naughton from Sheff Utd despite the last ditch efforts from spurs, Naughton believes Everton will be more beneficial towards his career and would like to follow the path taken by Jagielka. Everton are also targeting Fabian Delph, Joe Ledley and potentially Sol Campbell to bolster numbers and to tutor the development of Jack Rodwell. Suspect plenty of bosman transfers as well so the squad can cope with the demands of European football as well as the premiere league.
  Leicester's striker Billy Kee is set to move on loan to Accrington Stanley and James Wesolowski will join Brighton.

Leicester are going to bring 3 players in on permanent deals and 2 on loan before the season starts, these will include Clingan, Andy Gray, Plessis and McGivern.

Joe Mattock will join Fulham along with Fabian Delph, for £2.2m and £6.5m + Leijer respectively.

Plessis and N'Gog are loan targets for several Championship Clubs including Sheffield Wednesday, Leicester City, Cardiff City and Watford.
  Arsene wenger is set to pay out the 25m being recieved from city for adebayor on Huntelaar and M.Diarra– 25m the pair.
  I have some more Hibernian FC news. Hosain Kaebi is no longer on trial with Hibs and has signed a one year deal with Mes.

Arsenal have made the bid for Sol Bamba, if Bamba wants to leave Easter Road the deal will be concluded next Monday.

Hibs also have French keeper Stephane Porato on trial. He is likely to play a part in Hibs friendly with Dunfermline on Saturday.

In other SPL news, Steven Hughes will sign for Hearts tomorrow.

From my source deep within the club:
Scott Brown is in advanced talks with Sunderland and is expected to sign early next week for a fee believed to be around £3m.
His replacement will be none other than St Mirren's midfield anchorman Hugh Murray. A fee has already been agreed (around £1.5m) and the deal will be confimed when Brown's transfer is concluded.

  Brighton played an unknown trialist in their friendly match against Worthing, and he wore no. 7. My mate said he was a West Ham youth player? The poor lad missed three bicycle kicks. Looks like Liam Dickinson's arrival at Brighton could be followed up by a striker of similar quality, hehehe. .
I'm hearing lots of rumours about Ipswich. This is probably because of Keanos extravagant spending at Sunderland. Players I'm hearing linked are Daryl Murphy, now that his to Hull move has collapsed,to replace Danny Haynes, and also Liam Miller. However, Keane will tell Miller that he will only pay him if he bothers to turn up to training.
No surprises here then, SAF has lied again. Lying and cheating is in this mans nature; we must not forget that. However, I think he's taken the mind games too far now. Far from throwing their rivals off of the scent of their targets, I'm hearing rumours of D.Villa to Barca, Eto'o to Man City, D.Silva to Real, D.Costa to Liverpool and S.Aguero to Chelsea. Unlucky Devils. Get a new manager?
And on the recent flurry of 'F–words,' please may I be allowed one? Some brummy has linked Jermaine Beckford to West Brom, possibly the worst team to disgrace English football. As a White, this leaves me disgraced and disorientated. I mean, I'd rather he went to the Geordies, and that's saying something.

  Am from Waterford in Ireland, and am a member of the official supporters club of Waterford United F.C over here. currently Irish 1st Division.
Paul Walsh will sign for Waterford United from Limerick FC. Also, we are playing Ipswich Town on Friday July 17th, with it believed that Ipswich and Keano are having a look at one of our players, should he get a game. (we are currently in the middle of our season over here,with a league match 2 days after the Ipswich game, which is in pre–season for them) anyway, David Grincell is the young players name. Only 18. .

  Cardiff city

the clubs have agreed a fee of 500 000,and this is reason they have cancelled mario klimps trial.
also been told they got a top young premiership striker joining on loan,as soon as club buys the strikers they want,its a season long with no call back.
  After releasing Maros Klimpl from his trial period, Dave Jones will move to complete the capture of Łukasz Juszkiewicz from Widzew Lodz.

The 26 year old Polish midfielder who formerly played for Gornik Zabre is seen as the ideal man to play a holding role in the Bluebirds' engne room
  Alonso will go for 23 negredo mil mascherano is stayin , elano will be brought in for 11 mill, or flamini for the same amount.
  Barnsley FC News
Rumours are going around that Charlie Adam of Rangers has been unofficially spotted IN Barnsley, whether this is true or not is yet to be comfirmed although even if it is true, the reason he is here may not be the reason we want, but he may be just having a talk with Simon Davey and his POSSIBLE move.

Meanwhile apparently Liverpool winger Adam Hammill, another transfer target of the Tykes is stressing to Liverpool how much he wishes to leave and join Barnsley because of how welcome and at home he feels at the club.

Andy Gray and Charlton have accepted Barnsley's offer of £660,000 and Andy Gray will be sent on his way as soon as he has undergone a medical.
  My friend is top Sunday Broadsheet journalist. .I know for a FACT that John Terry has been texting Mark Hughes, saying he wants to join City.

It's all about ego. .top transfer fee for a defender. .top paid defender in the world.
  The guy who said:
''my brother works at villa park, and since the team has returned ashley young and MON havent even spoken, and he will be sold by villa.''
well, youve been caught lying, as on the official villa website today MON has confirmed that NO club has come in for ashley, their relationship is as strong as ever, they have held talks and neither party want a move away from villa, all bids will be rejected for the player. so wrong information in affraid, wish people had facts rather than make things up.
Anyway, crouch to sign for sunderland by monday and distin to villa by the same date. .as the players are becoming increasingly worried about portsmouths unsure future with the owners.
  To the guy that said this, against the guys that said these:

To the guys who said this. .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
To the guy that said this:

"My brother works at villa park and said since the players have returned young and oneil havent even spoken. Young is defo on his way out. I heard everton will sign him."

I've heard the same rumour, mate, and it's said to be having a bad impact on team morale. Expect Ashley to go to either Tottenham or Everton, as they're the only teams to show an interest so far.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The internationals haven't returned to Villa for training yet. Guess again!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Do your homework, matey. Ashley Young has been back in training for 4 days now.
  Peruvian striker Claudio Pizarro is expected to be Celtic and Tony Mowbrays next signing for a fee believed to be around £3mill or a possible season loan with view to buy. Pizarro–who was back at Werder Bremen on loan from Chelsea last season– has been reported to be extremely interested in what would be his last big move (he'll be 31 in October!). Mowbray has convinced the board he is the right man with the experience needed to get a run in the Champions League.
  To the delluded villa fan. I think you will find that som villa players have returned to trainin as not all your team perform internationally you muppet. Besides all international duty players have returned now as it is gettin too close to the start of the season to miss training. The season does start in 31 days you know.

Anyway just cause one everton fan said young is comin to us, doesn't mean we all think the sam thing. we know we havnt got anywhere near the finance needed to buy young. Hence why moyes is going for young up an coming talent such as garbutt, naughton, peterlin. moyes is targetin players under 25 its his new regime. we will only sign one big money player. expect it to be Defour or Cana from marseille.

If lescott leaves for shitty, expect a bid for a moderate centre half as we already av jags an yobo and rodwell to come in. He will use the rest of the money to buy a top class winger and another striker.
  New news is that Jolen Lescott is going no where David Moyes has said that he doesn't want to sell anyone and that he has decided to keep Lescott however still get Jo on a loan deal for 1 season. Other BIG news is that i play for everton academy and i saw ashley young pull up in his 60,000 BMW and begin to walk into finch farm while bill kenwright is tie–ing up deals with kyle naughton and also stalling with Fabien Delph but one big rumor going round is that Morst Gamst Pederson is to have his medical at everton next thursday. BIG transfer so Watch
  St. Mirren's Billy Mehmet has been given a secret tour of Murray Park after talks have been given the green light in a £350k move to Ranger. Smith is hopeful of making Mehmet his first signing of the season despite fear of backlash from the fans, especially as he is a Republic of Ireland U21 internationalist– despite being born in England. After goalkeeper Graham Smith was released, and the expected sale of Alan McGregor, Walter Smith is desperate to seek cover for Neil Alexander and wants Aberdeen's Jamie Langfield but may be priced out of a move if any substantial fee is involved so is looking towards getting Hibernian's Andy McNeil.

Xabi Alonso will, unfortunately, be leaving for Real Madrid. The deal will be sorted by next week and it will be for £32 million. We won't be getting anyone in exchange from Real. . .permanently. Rafa wants the lump sum and never wanted to ask for anyone from Madrid in exchange as he knew this would weaken Liverpools position in asking for more money. However, he also knows Real are desperate to sign Xabi Alonso. So Liverpool will be getting £32 million for the sale of Xabi Alonso, plus a Real Madrid player on loan. Who? Forget Van Nistelrooy, Rafa isn't Ferguson. Forget Negredo, he'll fetch too big a transfer fee elsewhere. It will be either Sneidjer or Gago on a season long loan deal or a permanent deal for youngster Javi Garcia.

That deal will give Rafa the money he needs to go for another big moneyplayer. If Gago comes, expect a central player like Hamsik, if Sneijder comes expect a more holding player like Inler or Cambiasso and if Garcia comes expect a winger (Silva/Lavezzi/Young) and a comparitively cheap CM (Cattermole, Flamini).

Rafa is using pre–season to assess just how much he needs to strengthen CB and up front. He's looked at Distin and knows around £3 million will get his man, but he's seeing how youngsters Kelly and San Jose fare against the better sides to come. He's also looking to Voronin to return as back–up striker and hopes Nemeth and Pacheco could be ready for a few cameos next season. Still don't be surprised to see Liverpool move for another striker though.

Finally, Mascherano and Arbeloa will both sign new contracts in the next week or two. Arbeloa is very happy at Liverpool for now. Mascherano is slightly different, it will be a one year extension with a wage rise. If his wife does become unhappy, which she isn't right now, then he could move next summer. But Masch will not risk a move as having to adapt to a new league it could jeopardise his World Cup and above all else, he really likes it at Liverpool. When Xabi Alonso does leave, which is likely to be before this time next week, expect a plethora of signings and statements aimed at easing the pain. Xabi will come out and say nothing but good about Rafa and the club and how he may return in the future, new contracts will be signed as will new players. Rafa knows it is a massive blow and is keen to sweep it under the carpet as quickly as he can.
  Bolton will sign; Lee Chong–Yong, Ferrie Bodde and Zat Knight. All hopefully this week if Megson gets his way. Also Knight coming in doesn't open the door for Cahill to leave, he has been outstanding for the whites since Vill were stupid enough to offload him and we wouldn't make the same mistake. Even Megson wouldn't do this.

After the completion of these transfers expect Megson to sign 2 or 3 more players, certainly 1 10+ goal a season striker.

No rumours just plain facts.

  Christian Vieri– who turned down the chance to join Celtic on a pre–season trial– is highly unlikely to be offered a contract by Blackburn Rovers due to his extreme lack of fitness. However this has not put off Celtic and a one year contract is set to be offered next week after Mowbray convinced Peter Lawell he desperately needs at least one experience striker before the Champions League qualifying draw.
  Arsenal to sign Klass–Jan Huntelaar for £16m he has rejected Stuttgart and Spurs are signing Negredo for £15m. Huntelaar has already spoke to v.Persie and Robin repsonded in a positive manner. Huntelaar will be joined by French under 21 midfielder Blaise Matuidi for around £8m this will bring the total spending to £24m and to funds these moves Emmanuel Adebayor will move to Manchester City for £22.5m
  LIVERPOOL F.C , the following is true. David Silva will sign and Ryan Babel is signing contract extention and will play a more attacking role next season. Xabi Alonso is going to Madrid for the 30million asking price
  Rory Delap to Everton for £1.5 million you heard it here first
  Ngiak can't understand why tevez is desperately trying to make friends
– by slagging fergie
– by slagging man u
– by slagging chelsea
– now slagging real madrid
he is a real nice, quiet guy, huh?
how come man u are taking so long to sign huntelaar and young, asks ngiak
  Top secret Man United news ::

the reason why Vidic hasnt visited Asia with United is that Real Madrid and Man United have agreed a deal that would see Vidic and £10 mil. going one way and Sergio Ramos and Wesley Sneijder coming the other way. . .Real don't have enough quality centre backs and in Vidic they'll have the best CB in the world and a strong defence and that's why they want to sacrifice Ramos who will be replaced by Maicon from Inter. .
Fergie will get Ramos and Sneijder but he needs a CB as well. .and his top targets are Gonzalo, wheater, Chiellini. .expect one of these at Old Trafford. .

~you'll believe it when you'll see it~
  Here are a few rumours I have heard down the pub.
My boyfriend swears they are all genuine so if they aren't you can blame him.

Richard Logan from Exeter city is being looked at by Southampton, Blackpool and Leeds Utd.

Neil Saunders is discussing a move to Peterborough.

We have offers in for 3 players apparently.

Andrew Cave Brown of Leyton Orient
Wayne Semansia from Billericay Town
Josh Pelling from the Seagull lovers.

if all goes through with naughton and walker for 12m then expect these.
Beckford – 2m
Evans –2M
Snodders – 1.5m
O toole – 500k
2 youths from Denmark
Sebastien pryozyka( or something) free
Jason Demetriou – 750k
Marcus Bent – 400k
Wes Morgan – 800k
Dos Santos – 2.3m
Naughton & Walker
Quinny 1m scunny or forest
  Had word from a high placed source within Newcastle United that if the club is not sold within the next 2 weeks then Fat mike is putting us into administration!

Dark times ahead on tynesdie

  TEVEZ, biggest waste of money so far. theres a reason he wasnt getting many games @ man u, he's the most over rated player of this years transfer market. I think he should be embarrassed man city payed that kind of money for him. So glad he went to man city tho, i thought we were gonna be stuck with him for another 3–4yrs! :(
SAF will be spending more this season,we all know what he's like now!

Does anyone else think with this "global credit crunch" teams are being stupid in spending this kind of money, e.g real,man city,etc. Chelsea are the only team for a change that seem to be making any sense and saving money. look at the state of scottish football, we're going the same way, watch this space. we can't be spending money just cos we have it at the moment, save a little at least incase the st hits the fan. those money lenders are gona ask these teams for the loot back when they need it and with the way things are going its gona be soon.
  To the bloke who said Young and O'neil are not talking :

I was attending a service call at Bodymoor on Tuesday and they where laughing and talking at the dining room table at lunch time , MON . AY , Petrov and Carew and Robertson .

So that's a load of cobblers . Villa will do business at £30mil but Lerner is concerned at the obvious backlash from the fans now that season tickets have come out on sale .
  Liverpool / Arsenal transfer rumours

I believe some of the following players will move to Liverpool or Arsenal

Ashley Young – 20 million – my bet Liverpool

Huntelaar – 15 million – my bet Arsenal

Martins – 10million – my bet Arsenal

David Silva – 20 million – my bet Liverpool

Aguero – 30 million – my bet Liverpool/Arsenal 50/50
  Bury forward andy Bishop is in talks with Notts County over a move

Also notts have signed dave carney on a years loan from sheff utd which is to be completed when united replace him with a winger this week
  Rob hulse off to middlesboro for 3 million there ready to put an offer in this week with the money from downing.
  Free Agent Christian Dailly recently released by Glasgow Rangers is set to have a medical with English championship side Blackpool on Monday subject to passing the medical he will sign a 1 year contract with Blackpool with an option of another year after his 1st year is over

OUT : Ferguson > Birmingham
OUT : Beasley > Newcastle
OUT : Adam > Blackpool
OUT : Hemdani > Released
OUT : Daily > Released

IN : Tonel > 1.5m
IN : Hutton > Loan
IN : Lovenkrands > Free

John Terry will NOT be signing for Manchester City.
Also Chelsea to sign Nemanja Matic Marek Hamsik and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Arsene Wenger has bid on an English player who isn't 13 years old!!!

A £12m bid has been accepted by Manchester City for Midfielder Micheal Johnson!!!

  If Everton don't sell Lescott they will only have funds for the following:

Kyle Naughton – 4 million (initially) and
Joe Ledley – 3 million
The only other possibility is Stephen Hunt – but only if Ledley goes elsewhere.

Moutinho, Defour and Cana are all highly unlikely and for those who think Ashley Young is coming – never in your wildest dreams.

Still – keeping Lescott would be huge. Come on you Blues!

Jermaine Beckford is going to sign a one year contract extension because of his successful score rate in pre season, with possibly a further 2years if Leeds are certain to get promoted.

Fabian Delph is thinking of moving to Spurs in the region of £7.5m.

Lee Hendrie will come in as a replacement for Delph on a free transfer from Sheff Utd.

Sam Sodje is going to sign a permanent deal after Leeds come back from Ireland.

Zak Whitbread (Of all the people, a Millwall player) will sign for Leeds for £450k + police protection from Millwall fans.
  TOTTENHAM had a deal to sign DOWNING in Jan. but since they got the word that ASHLEY YOUNG wanted in at WHITE HART LANE, SPURS have done a deal with VILLA! basically its a swap of contracts? meaning VILLA are the only team that can actually sign DOWNING? a straight swap for TOTTENHAM bound YOUNG? what we don't know about the deal? is that is it one player plus cash or two players and a smaller amount of cash? so all the words from LIVERPOOL, ARSENAL AND MAN UTD claiming to be buying him? that ship has sailed
other player's of note that are or could be arriving at WHL are (these we told you about 2months ago)
F.DELPH (link up with mate danny rose)
  Would people stop quoting offensive prices for rangers players

Bougherra is worth 9m+ and there will be no takers
Steven Davis is also worth more than the 3.5m and 5m quoted
Kris Boyd is going nowhere and even if he was he is worth more than the 3m quoted
Beasley has not been offered to clubs as the need for a left sided player is paramount and he has proved his worth in the CL

There will be some emphasis on youth but please get your facts straight most of the players mentioned in one of the posts have been loaned out and Efrem has been released

The club will be sold but possibly not til next season when there is less uncertainty about TV deals and CL qualification

Finally why would Real madrid loan out RVN to celtic when he is available on a free. .just like the owen rumour

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The real story is that Rangers are likely to add a couple of bosmans and maybe a significant signing likely to be a CB as Boogie wil be away at the african nations for up to a month.

A CM player also on the list to cover Mo and Thommo
  Arsenal will not look to make many signings unlike what some of the predictions on this site might suggest. With Vermaelen in, Bordeaux demanding Silvestre as part of the Chamakh deal, and Gallas looking to leave, expect the signing of Brede Hangeland within a couple of weeks for around £12m. City have agreed to lay off him as part of the Ade deal. Should this bid fail, Micah Richards is next on the list for around £8m. In midfield, Melo is not coming as he signs for Juve, Arsenal fans please stop predicting his arrival at Emirates. Instead expect moves for Matuidi or an unlikely return for Flamini, most likely Matuidi, with one of Diaby or Denilson leaving. if Denilson leaves it will be on loan, if Diaby leaves it will be permanent. up front, Ade will complete his move to Man City depsite waiting for AC Milan to make a last minute move which won't happen. Chamakh looks like the player to be brought in, though maybe Huntelaar is still a possibility. Eden Hazard will be brought in as one for the future. Eboue, Gilbert and possibly Randall will leave. Also expect loan deals for some of the reserves.
Out: Adebayor – £25m
Eboue – £7m
Gallas £6m
Gilbert – £2m
Randall – £1m
Silvestre – p/e if we go for Chamakh
Denilson/Diaby – Loan/£7m Total: £41–48m
In: Vermaelen – £10m done
Hazard – £6m
Hangeland – £12 or Richards – £8m
Matuidi – £7m
Chamakh – £7m + Silvestre, or Huntelaar £14m
Total: between £38m – £49m, either way net spending will be less than £10m, working out to be in line with budget expectations.
Manccienne one year loan deal
Nantes midfielder Guirane N’Daw will sign in the week

Neil Collins to Preston

  I wish all the Celtic fans would stop posting their fantasys about Rangers on here. We are not going into administration and Walter does have money to spend. But as the great man says himself if good offers come in for any player at Rangers they will be considered!

Now to the real rumours:

G Smith
S Smith
Broadfoot (January probably)
Daily (Gone)
Hemdani (Gone)

Cuellar (Only if Boughy goes)
Hutton (Loan)

A bit to much deadwood returning but sould still be enough to make it 2 in a row!!!

The Real Rangers Renegade
  Alberto Aquilani Will Sign For Liverpool For 15 Million In The Next Few Days On A 5–Year Contract
  To whoever said this– Rangers will this week set the wheels in motion of in the hope of staving off administation and job losses throghout the club.
STEVEN DAVIS IS ALSO BEING HAWKED DOWN SOUTH FOR 5 MIL. THERE WILL BE NO NEW ARRIVALS, THE ONUS WILL BE ON THE YOUTH BEING PROMOTED TO 1ST 11,SUCH AS WILSON,NESS,SHINNIE,FLECK,EFRAIM. THE TARGET FOR THIS SEASON IS TO DRAW AS LUCRATIVE TIES IN CHAMPS LEAGUE AS POSS,AND TRY AND FINISH AT LEAST 2ND PLACE IN SPL. THIS WILL DISAPOINT MOST GERS FANS, THOUGH THE DEBT MUST BE REDUCED BEFORE ANY POTENTIAL BUYERS WILL SHOW ANY INTREST. Firstly graeme smith moved to st johnstone for 10k, not released, and how to you expect shinnie and EFREM to play for us next season when shinnie is away on loan and efrem left on a free to a greek club weeks ago? Who are you impressing telling lies with inaccuracies that you've made up? Its a rumours forum, not a jackanory forum.
  From the guy who brought you the glen johnson and robbie keane rumours first. Here is the official word from Anfield. Alonso deal is done, he's off to Madrid on 19th July, not a shock for anyone really, but Liverpool will be getting the 30mill asking price.

WIth this cash Rafa buys 2 players. Aguilani and Silva. That will end the spending apart from a couple of youth players. Word on Melwood is that Rafa is gambling on TOrres' fitness for the sake of getting the wings sorted out. With Silva and Aquilani the midfield will have enough bite to play an effective 4–5–1. Plus the fact that there is no more money.

Masc is staying though for an increased 84000 a week, deal to be announced in the enxt couple of weeks, as his agent has several meetings with Benitez this week.

Dont expect any other players to join it won't happen. But with most teams significantly weakened, confidence is high on Anfield

ALONSO is staying – ALONSO is staying – ALONSO is staying
Reliable source has just informed me that Rafa and Xabi have kissed and made up.
Alonso loves Liverpool and wants to help them win the Premiership
Watch out for this news to be released soon.
Well done Rafa and Alonso
Masch now also staying after agreeing to a new contract.
Xabi to also sign new deal soon

  Rangers are looking into the possiblity of Signing Raul Tamudo on loan for a year, short term measure since things are tight and since hes available
  As a close friend of Nigel Clough, he informs me of his targets.

He informed today he has met with Leroy Lita's agents in an attempt to bring him to Derby, which will pave the way for Chris Porter to join Blackpool in a deal initally worth 300k raising to 600k with add ons,

Porter is keen to move back to the North West as he is a Wigan lad and Shaun Barker Rams new signing has had only good things to say about B'pool and Porter is due to have talks over personal terms on Monday
  Richard Langley has joined Accrington Stanley on a 2 week trial after Blackpool decided not to extend his trial period after failing to impress new pool and old friend Ian Holloway.
Langley is set to start on saturday away to Halifax town in a bid to impress John Coleman
  With it being my Birthday just a few days ago my mum, dad and other family members managed to get me a day at Plymouths training ground to celebrate my 18th birthday and completing my A Levels. I met all the team got photos and before i left asked Timar , my favourite player, about a possible rumoured transfer to Blackpool. He replied that "He would love to join up with Holloway again if he was given the chance and hes been in contact with him regulary since leaving the Pilgrams.
To the guy that posted:

"Liverpool FC LATEST:

MASSIVE News from Anfield.

Firstly the inevitable: Alonso is going to Real Madrid. This is to be announced on Monday 20th July. Fee to be £26M rising to £29M after appearances.
Alonso to make public statement expressing his desire to move to Madrid and his respect for Benitez, thus absolving Rafa of any blame for "resentment" between player and manager.

Also announced on Monday will be the SENSATIONAL NEWS that DAVID VILLA AND DAVID SILVA will be signing for LFC. Figures to be finalised, but it will be in the region of £40M + player exchange of Voronin, Reira and Daniel Pacecho (loan).
LFC have actually been in negotiations with Valencia since April, however were waiting to finalise the Alonso situation before closing the deal.

There will also still be enough money for the purchase of Martinez. Strangely enough Mark Noble is also high up on the list of priorities.

Lastly Mascherano is most definitely staying, and will be awarded with a new contract and pay rise"

I guess you are assuming livertweet is real then??? I want it to be too but im not holding my breath – guess we will know in the next week!
  West Ham. . .

Eidur Gudjohnsson is currently at stanstead airport arrival lounge!!!!
  Millwall and Notts County have both us offers in for Andy Bishop but they have been turned down.I expect Bishop will leave for around 300,000
  Sir Alex Ferguson claimed he will not be signing anyone else this summer. Well, David Gill has claimed that despite Fergie saying this, Don't be surprised if you don't see 1 or 2 more faces appear at Old Trafford.

Rumours are that Douglas Costa & Ashley Young could be these 2 faces that sign for United in the summer. I was reading the paper this morning and I was wondering why Villa have signed Stuart Downing. . then it clicked. . Young will definately be leaving and my source claims United is his likely destination with Fergie very keen on him.

Fergie said that Valencia & Obertan both have great pace but with Obertan being a reserve, maybe that's the reason Young could be United.

Michael Owen is the only new signing that has been included in the 22 man squad to play in the asia tour games in the next few weeks. Valencia & Obertan both not included.

  Latest man utd news
with barca on verge of signing poulsen from juve yaya toure will be free to join the red devils.
also ash young will also join in a transfer that could drag on like the berba one last season as both clubs look for the right price. there will be two more players going though with nani making way for young possibly to everton in a loan deal with a view to a permanent deal in a year and even more surprisingly michael carrick who could end up being used as bait for young. this is the reason valencia hasnt been given a squad number yet even though new kit has just been released as he wants carricks number16 – which was his old number for wigan.
  I am a Celtic fan and some of the rumours being posted by Celtic and Rangers fans are laughable.

Ruud Van Nistelrooy will not sign for Celtic or anyone else for that matter because Pellegrini has said he is a huge admirer.

And Rangers fans you will not sign anyone your manager has said it and your chairmain is now tighter than ours.

Celtic possible ins

Andreas Ivanschitz Panathanaikos
Fernando Marques Free Agent
Amadou Allasane Le Harve
Marc Janko Salzburg
Dan Fox Coventry
Some young lads from Upjest

Rangers Possible Outs
