Football Rumours Archive May 17 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Just returned from Stoke v Wigan, where there scouts from Aston Villa behind me. Heard one of them on the phone say he'd had a wasted journey as 'He' hadn't started. The two of them, then questioned Leon Cort's place in the team. Putting 2 and 2 together, with Laursen retiring, and there only being one centre half on the bench, it would appear that Villa are interested in Ibrahima Sonko

  Celtic Fc Rumours :
Marc Janko was given a tour of parkhead, lennoxtown and glasgow in january and liked what he seen and liked the offer celtic proposed he will be signed in the summer for a fee between 3–6mil. ShikaBala another player watched in January an egyptian midfielder rumoured to have big links watch for him too. Marek cechk to celtic, middlesborough hitman Tuncay to make a move if borough go down, also chris eagles will come to celtic if burnley don't get promoted and if celtic fail to win the league Owen Coyle will replace strachan if he fails to get into EPL.
As for Rangers, they will sign nobody, outgoing players only.

  From Reliable Resources Within Ibrox Ive Heard That Spurs Still Owe Rangers Installments For The Alan Hutton Transfer and Spurs Financialy Dont Want To Pay It and For A Bumper Deal Hutton To Be Shipped Back To Ibrox. . but then again will Hutton take a pay–cut on wages and will the fee be small !!! also ive heard . . Also Stephen Hughes is now linked again with Rangers and Andy Dorman both would be reasnoably cheap and could be snapped up if Rangers Can Sell One Of Their Prized Assests such as
Davis or Even Bougy

Wheater Middlesboro £4 – once again needs english players and could get him cheap if boro go down but wenger will only bid if he missis out on gary cahill
Cahill Bolton £3–4m – wenger thinks he'll be one of the best defenders in england before he's 25 plus will help towards the 6+5 rule
Veloso Sporting Lisbon £12m – wants him to take over from senna once he retires and rather than wait a lose out to a bigger club will buy him and let him settle in before he gets senna's place

  Leicester City News

Tom Cleverley and Kerrea Gilbert are both set to return. Cleverley will re–join on a season long loan and Gilbert will sign a three year contract.

Astrit will not be offered a new deal as Nigel Pearson isn't too impressed with him.

The Simon Cox deal has now feel through as Swindon keep asking for more and more money. It is now a two horse race between WBA & Celtic for his signature. Leroy Lita has been sounded out by Steve Walsh as an alternative and will be in Leicester for contract talks this week.

Dany N'Guessan will sign despite interest from Sheffield United with Nicky Adams going the other way to Lincoln.

Leicester have also had two bids rejected for Andrew Surman but may go back with a take it or leave it third and final offer.

Whoever said Leicester are interested in Sagonowski and Hanemann are wrong. Leicester have sealed a one year contract with Tony Warner and are still negotiating with Blackburn for Bunn.
  Colin doyle going on loan to cardiff.

Lee Grant will join Birmingham for 2m and joe hart is joing on loan too.

Radhi Jaidi to join derby

Andriy Voronin to join birmingham


a couple of big name player are on mcleishs radar too.
  LFC Targets:
Rafa is looking to bring in several new players in the summer, but there will be no 'star' signings, with the likes of Tevez, Auguero, Villa and Silva just being too expensive and leaving very little to strenghten other areas. Signings will be as follows:
S Taylor & R Taylor – Newcastle – Combined fee of £12m plus season long loan of Ngog.
M Owen – Newcastle – Free
S Downing – Boro – £10m
G Barry – Villa – £10m
G Johnson – Portsmouth – £10m
Notice the trend ?? – All English, experienced Premier League players who (with the exception of Ryan Taylor)have performed consistantly well in the EPL for years.
Leaving will be:
Degan – £1m – Newcastle / Boro
Arbeloa – £8m – Barca / Madrid
Cavalieri £3m Benfica
Babel to stay and be a star next season !
  To all the ''cousins of stewards, friends of agents, Ground staff etc etc'' will you please stop the rubish you post in here. . IT'S JUST UTTER RUBISH! As a lot of people have said, this is a rumour site not a RUBISH site as some of your posts. .

Now some real rumours going around:

BARRY will not sign for LFC FACT! more likely will sign for Arsenal as Rafa as been very impressed with Alonso and the whole idea of selling him last year was with the view of giving him a kick in the but wich he certainly took and been WORLD CLASS this season.

G.Jhonson will probably sign for LFC 9MIL
Silva will probably sign for around 16Mil + Riera.

Aguero will probably sign for around 21Mil + Dossena on Loan for one season

If the aguero deal doesn't go trough, than Rafa Will try to sign Tevez if the SCUM don't keep him.

The Forlan deal is a possibility if we don't get Aguero or Tevez and he will cost around 12MIl

we will have around 30Mil + the cash from the keane sale wich is around 16MIl
Total 46Mil

If rafa gets Jhonson, Silva and Aguero than that's the shopping done as he will have Kelly back from Hudds and he will give more chances to Spearing

Lucas will Stay as Rafa loves him and bielives he's got bags of potential which in fairness I agree with.

Babel will stay, so will Alonso and Masch. So stop the rubish that any of these will leave.

If we don't get Aguero or Silva that expect that money being used on Forlan, Zirchkov and Albiol.

This are rumours not FACTs and I don't know any agents or stewards nor my cousin works at anfield nor have I heard this "" on the radio from someone nearly allways 92% right. ."

  Leicester City to sign American goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann. The Seattle born keeper who has been an ever present in the last 8 years at Reading. Also Leicester are frustrated at Swindon's price for Simon Cox are also considering Leroy Lita from Reading also. Both players are available on free transfers.
  Wenger wil buy 3/4 players in the summer

They will be:
Sakho – 9mil
Hangeland/Shawcross/Upson – 9/6/8mil
Matiudi/Inler/Alonso/Cana/Mbia – 8/10/15/12/10mil
Santa Cruz/Guiza/Tevez/Pato – 13/10/20/17mil

Outs will be
Senderos – 5mil
Silvestre – free
Ade maybe – 25mil or Anelka + Carvalho/Ivanovic
Gibbs – Loan
Song – Loan
Bendtner –May be part of santa cruz or upson deal
  Ahhh i see my error.
playing 12 players at the moment would be the only route to success.
i would rotate rosicky and nasri but the rest of the team should be the first choice

thanks for all who pointed out the error

paul the gooner
  Huge rangers fan here but if we loose the league then expect to c the following leave:
boogey to newcastle if they stay up
mendes to england or italy
boyd to birmingham
ferguson to birmingham
mcgregor to spurs
s smith

brought in will be frees
tonel but only if he will take a wage drop
greame smith

there may be the signing of mcarthur for 750k plus dean furman but that is unlikely.
  Liverpool to swap Ryan Babel for Sergio 'Kun' Aguero as well as £13.6 million. Wait and See
There will be no Tevez he would play the same role as keano. Keeping Torres' seat warm. No Aguero as there is some economic crisis going on you might not of heard about it.
Barry 12m+youth player on loan Spearing?
Johnson 10m/ 3m+arbeloa
Silva? 20m covers gerrard and LW
+1 proven prem stiker
Crouch Return
Owen (not likely)
Boyd (EPL dream)
Watch this space!
Ollie N.
  Aguero to Liverpool is going to happen.Ian Ayre from Liverpool has travelled to Madrid and is in talks with Atl Madrid advisors the fee is expected to be around £16m + Babel if it happens
  In the summer a transfer triangle will unfold between Liverpool, Arsenal and Aston Villa

Alonso will move to Emirates for £18m and sign a 4 year contract

Barry will move to Anfield for £13.5 and 3 year deal

Diaby will move to Villa Park £8.75m and will sign a 3 year deal

remember you heard it first

  Big moves this summer
tevez–man city
valencia–man united
villa–real madrid
micheal turner–aston villa
gareth barry–liverpool
ryan babel–ajax
glen johnson–livepool
ronaldinho–man city
vorinin–hertha berlin
  Should not be letting the cat out of the bag, Walter Smith is about to dupe Strachan.

Barry Ferguson is set to be involved in a swop deal with James McCarthy from Hamilton, plus £500,000. Ferguson sees this as an ideal retirement club, given that SPL status is firmly secured for next season. The only stumbling bloke is the Irish background of McCarthy but Smith sees this as a way to tackling the bigotry at the club with a new midfield of Davis, Thompson, Edu and McCarthy expect great things next season.

You heard it here first.

Cuellar to wolves

Michael Ballack– Chelsea – Bayern Munich (Loan)
Michael Carrick – Manchester United – Newcastle (£27 mill)
Paul Wootton – Plymouth – Walsall (Undisclosed)
Nick Barmby– Hull– Milwall– (free)
  To the Liverpool fans out there who continue to insist that David Silva will sign, U are mistaken. Valencia are in debt therefore may have 2 sell their 2 main assets (Villa+Silva) they know interest is hot all around Europe and therefore expect to net at least 100 million combined from which they value Silva at 30 million, They are not looking for player exchanges as the need the money.

Van Der Vaart–Inter Milan
Ronaldinho–Man City
Van Nistelrooy–Tottenham/Man City
