By Paul Camillin
Kazenga LuaLua has joined Brighton and hove Albion on a six-month loan deal, with a view to making a permanent move during the January transfer window.
The live-wire winger completed the necessary paperwork last night, and will join the Seagulls for their week-long training camp in Portugal from Monday.
Gus Poyet told, "Kazenga was one of our main summer targets and I am delighted we have finally come to an agreement with Newcastle United. I am sure the fans will be equally delighted to see him back at the club.
"He will join us for our week away, which will be vital, and I am sure those travelling to support will be delighted to see him in a Brighton shirt once again."(15)(6)

Aston Villa will complete the signing of Given on Monday or Tuesday. N'Zogbia will follow shortly after as Villa and Wigan are very close to agreeing a fee. West Ham will respond to Villa's bid for Parker next week, they are just waiting to see if Chelsea and/or Spurs firm up their interest with a bid. Parker will move to Villa if Chelsea and Spurs don't bid, but would prefer to stay in London as he would rather not uproot his young family.

Cuellar will also decide on his future next week with a move to Rangers on the cards. However, it remains to be seen if personal terms can be agreed as he would have to take a wage cut to rejoin the Scottish club. If he does leave, Villa may move for Scott Dann but it remains to be seen if his valuation will be met. If the asking price for Dann is too high Villa will move onto other defensive targets.(15)(9)

Nicky Maynard will be signing a new contract at Bristol City with prem get out clauses. I can see why he might want to go to Leicester City as they have alot of money and appear to be putting a very strong squad together. Why would he want to go to Southampton though? A club that has just come up from league 1 and has no chance of promotion, plus southampton is a tiny place and he would be pretty bored. It would not even be a sideways step, it would be a step down.(10)(13)

From inside the club

Carlton Cole demanded a ridiculous 70k a week at Stoke and has now pledged his loyalty to the Hammers after Stoke refuse to meet his no-one willing to pay him as much it seems. Don't think too many Stoke fans will be gutted personally.

A Chelsea player still very much wanted by the Potters(17)(4)

Upon signing "experienced hard man" Michael Brown as a holding midfielder, Leeds manager Simon Grayson is apparently eyeing a single major transfer (particularly aiming at major European youths concerned about not getting caps for their clubs who are simply too good) to complete a premier-league promotion worthy side.

His key target is Bosnian playmaker Miralem Pjanic as he shows massive potential but comes second to Yoann Gourcuff in the starting lineup, however the chances of getting him cheap are out of the window after sides like Spurs are interested and Lyon have announced that they will accept no less than 13 million euros in order to release him.

Grayson will no doubt try and convince the chairman Ken Bates to finance a movement of this magnitude as an investment, but Bates has a reputation of having a tight wallet and little hope is existent.

Another option is to move for the English (Scotland call-up) Hearts winger Andrew Driver who is concerned about lost form and not getting games - and furthermore wanting to prove himself in English football.

the final major (and the most realistic option) is Glasgow Rangers player John Fleck.

also i believe that Leeds have been eyeing Manchester United sub keeper Tomasz Kuszczak after the singing of David de Gea - but then again what keeper haven't they announced an interest in?

think what you will.(6)(27)
