Personally I wouldnt be surprised to see some sort of swap deal with Leicester for Adam Clayton and any number of players including Matt Mills, Jermaine Beckford, Neil Danns or Richie Wellens.

Also The Possible options for Left-Back:
Clint Hill
Nicky Shorey
Joe Mattock

16 May 2012 19:50:06
Hulk is close to signing for Tottenham.(10)(42)As much as I'd like to beleive this story, Daniel Levy is far to shrewd to pay stupid money for any 1 player. Hulk's release clause is £85m, and any realistic offer would need to be around £30-£40m. Spurs are much more likely to sign a player like Dimao for £12-£16m.Maybe in your championship manager gameSounds about right, kick & run man for a kick & run team

AshmanThat would be an incredible signing,the rest will be green with envy.Wasent HE on the TV!Have to agree with post number 1. No way will levy pay 30-40 million. If that was the case, Hazard would have joined spurs in January!!Levy offered £40m for aguero. not saying he will for Hulk but they have it.
shortySource?Dont think levy would spend the money needed to get him but i woudnt want him any way..clumsy striker who would be out of his depth in the prem..Incredible!

bristol city set to sign michael chopra and lee martin in a straight swap for david james seems a really good deal for ipswich(7)(35)David James has left Bristol City, so that will not be happening,This is never going to happen.

16 May 2012 19:26:18
Ipswich set to complete the signing of Joel ward in the next few days, Jewell is also hoping that a bid is accepted for Huddersfeild right back Jack Hunt as the 21 yeard old fits his need of 'young and hungry' but isnt likely to be cheap after a good season in league 1 . Paul Gallagher has also been talked about as potentially joining ipswich after impressing in leicsters 2-1 win at portman road. Finally a deal for Sam Baldock to join Ipswich town on loan for the coming season IF West Ham are to win promotion on Saturday.(6)(14)Hes going to leeds weetabix boyI've heard the same about Joel Ward. Should be joining town before the end of the week.Ward is leeds boundHe rejected Leeds.He's already signed for leedsIpswich r skint factThe five posts above this all list ipswich "signings".

Stuart Beavon is likely to move to Notts County. A fee has been agreed, (£150k i believe). He wants to stay in L1. Should be done next week.(12)(10)Hes out of contract for a starter!My brother works at WWFC and he has mentioned this to me also. Good luck to the lad.He signed a 2 year deal at the end of last season, so not sure how he is out of contract. From the Wycombe official site "Inventive frontman Beavon earned himself a new two-year contract in the summer following a hugely impressive 2010/11 campaign."Stop making things upReally cant see that , as Bournemouth are front runners for himAnd Bournemouth being hugely different and much more attractive than Notts County because?Preston have agreed a fee of 400k for himWhere the hell have they got 400k from?


16 May 2012 18:22:57
Richard Hughes is training with league 1 club afc Bournemouth with a view of permanent contract he links up with Paul groves who he trained when at Portsmouth(9)(5)Training with them?

16 May 2012 18:20:50
Charlton's Johnnie Jackson and Watford's Troy Deeney are top of Millwall's wanted list.(3)(18)They will need 3 million and £50 - the £3mill being for Deeney!I'm sure Jackson is on Millwall's wanted list, no surprise there.Why would Jacko even consider it - club captain and instrumental in promotion.Who ever keeps thinking Deeney will go to Millwall needs to wake up in the real world.


16 May 2012 18:20:39
would like to see millwall go for danny haynes. not getting much game time at charlton and was good for us previously. straight swap for n'guessen??(6)(9)Danny haynes has been injured no chance. Lets be honest he is too good for a club like millwall.Haha too good for you and we just got him and he has been injured but has played when fit so keep dreamingThey are both as bad as each other glad Haynes didn't sign for us in January and should let them av n'gusen he is pony!I think Millwall will do well next year but, you'll do better if you can keep N'Gussan.

Wolves have put a 10m price tag on jarvis and a 12m on fletcher with a message ''we dont have to sell, both players are 25 and have a 3year contract left with us and they are both happy to complet their contracts with us. Sothey wont be going for anything less then our values''(9)(20)Fletcher will not be at wolves next seasonThe post is true, it's in the local paper.I dont think wolves will sell unless silly money is offered but this is unlikely so both players probably will stay and from what ive heard well be making a couple of signings like...

Simeon Jackson £1.5 m
Mathias Jørgensen £5m
Nile Ranger £2.5m
Emmanuel Frimpong (season loan)
Greg Cunningham (season loan)Neither of them will. Wolves fan's are just a bit deluded and can't accept the downfall. Tough luck.Wolves are selling fact or face going bankruptIt is well known Wolves are financially sound so there is no need to sell will depend if the players want premiership football and on whether Wolves evaluation of them is met. Personally hope they stay.Wolves are no where near bankruptcy.How can we be deluded ? Moxey came out and said it.We do not need to sell to survive.They will go if a prem club wants them

which they will, wake up Wolves fans you have been relegated financially sound or not gonna be tough trying to get backIm a wolves and and to be realistic we dont have a choice if the player wants to leave he can do so as all players have a relegation release clause in there contracts plus we cant afford pay premship wages for championship moneyWhy do u want keep them anyways they got u relagated ?? poor players for a club thats going drop down the leaguesIf you know we are going to drop down through the leagues, can you tell me the lottery numbers for Friday night please.On another note can't see us buying Mathias Jorgensen just gone to psv. Fletcher tweeting things thats sound like he's stating ie "we'll be back" and "frimpong has unfinished business at wolves"Wolves are the only profitable Premier League team by the end of the 2011/12 season FACT. The need to sell is not there FACT. That being said Fletcher and Jarvis will leave to go back to the Premier League FACT and Wolves fans will have to accept that FACT although it will on Wolves' terms and not the players FACT. Will be an interesting summer of comings and goings but Wolves will be losing the better players FACT.

Just been speaking to the Press officer at Sheffield Weds and he said they are close to snapping up Sunderlands promising youngster Peter Horner & are also trying to tie up a 1 year deal for Jason Koumas.

Been a lot of interest in Madine as well, if the price is right they are willing to replace.

They enquired about McCormack but it was dismissed as he loves it there and Warnock is basing his team around him and Snodgrass next season.(6)(4)I can assure you that Peter Horner would not be interested in a move to the Championship as AC Milan are apparently interested.

McCormack might be tempted to move to a big club like Wednesday {Ed013's Note - McCormack, are you kidding! Premier League clubs wanted him in January!}As a Sunderland supporter I've never heard of Peter Horner. Who is he?


16 May 2012 16:52:45
Klinsmann to get the Liverpool Job.

Hughton to be approached by both Villa and WBA but will stay loyal to Birmingham.

Bob Bradley to Villa as gaffa

Holloway to WBA if Blackpool fail to get promotion(17)(14)Klinsmann is being paid quite a lot of money to work a part time job and live in california. I don't think he'd trade that for the unholy stress of trying to salvage liverpool.

having been a big supporter of barnsley fc i must tell you that the club is not as sound as some people believe, in fact the only reason why vaz te left is because the books needed balancing. we have very little cash to buy players that is why keith hill looks to lower league players. so if you think i am wrong then write directley to patrick cryne direct at the club.(8)(4)Relegation next season would be a huge disaster for you.Would that be directly?The reason vaz te was sold was common sense !! he was going for nowt at the end of the season, and we were more or less safe, so 500k for nowt. its pointless trying to build a team around someone that intends to leave.the same happened with howson at leeds."Relegation next season would be a huge disaster for you." It's not exactly good for anyone now is it?

Some fantastic news for Ipswich fans reguarding the signing the of Joel Ward. Just been told by my ever reliable source, that Joel Ward is expected to complete his move to Ipswich by friday at the latest. Although he spent time talking to Leeds, Ipswich was always his first choice. H ecould of gone Leeds and earnt a great deal more money, but decided that Ipswich was his best place to go.

Looks set to be the first of at least 7 signings this summer.(5)(13)U obviously know nothing, leeds would never offer more money than ipswichWell, I doubt this is true. I don't see how he could have seen Ipswich as a 'better' place to go. Especially seeing as he can link up with Jason Pearce at Leeds, and possibly David Norris according to recent speculation. However, Ipswich have courted him a long time, and can match Leeds' wage offer easily. Its anyones guess in my opinion, 50-50 either way.

To Southampton fans, Wolves want ten million pounds for Jarvis , remember Wolves do not need to sell as they are not cash strapped.Wolves also want ten million pounds for Fletcher as well.So good luck with offering four million pounds for Jarvo.
Morto(9)(7)AHAHAH good one wolves aren't in a great position in terms of jarvis wanting to play in the prem. Wolves will lose at least 4-5 of their best players on the cheap as Wolves aren't seen as a team that can bounce straight back up. With the likes of Leicester spending big this summer as well as Charlton. Attendances will start to fall and you'll be playing league 1 footie in now time poor club with awful fans. By the way southampton have a bigger fan base then half the other prem teams and high volumes of cash waiting to be spent (what other team can afford to spend 15m on a new training ground?)You can keep him then better players in that position for half the priceNothing has actually been confirmed! Its all hear say wether Saints have made a bid, wether its £4m or even if they are interested! People need to stop taking rumours on here seriously! Jarvis is not worth £10m and when he leaves it wont be for that amount..regardless of what club he goes to.Have you taken into account Jarvis may force a move away as he would prefer prem football? I heard saints bid 5.5 anyway he's not worth 10 million get off yourgiabt horse made of strawDon't know if your a wolves fan mate, but your 100% correct. anyone who thinks wolves are under pressure to sell are just completely deluded and for 4 million you might just get jarvis's right footWe can do far better than jarvis-poor prem player. A club as big as saints should aim much higher. Jarvis imho isnt worh more than 800k. But then again if saints did want him they could have him just like that. Massive club, no disrespect to wolves but a far bigger club than them.Jarvis will leave for less than 10 mil. all clubs relegated from the prem need to sell players as there on high wages, much higher than the championship. All clubs need to balance the books when relegated or your be another Pompey/Luton/Chester etcSaints a big club omg delusion at its bestActually in all of Wolves players contracts it says wages are halved if they go down. Wolves have said they want £20million for Jarvis and Fletcher. They don't need to sell and Jarvis is on a long term contract regardless of where he wants to play.Wolves fans need to realise your now a Championship club...You are dreaming if you think your going to get £20m for Fletcher and Jarvis. Southampton are a big club...All you have to do is look at who owns them, their facilities and soon to be Cat 1 youth academy. In my opinion they will be a good mid table team.Saints are a bigger club than wolves fact over this season we've had just under an average of 1,000 fans more the wolves over the season. It's the wolves fans that are deluded. Have fun burnley and barnsley next season boys while we're playin man city and united. LOLBoth sets of fans are deluded, neither one of your clubs are a big club.I should think there are alot of saints fans embarassed by you lot. Wolves have stated in the local press we want £20 million for the pair. I was tol 4 weeks ago 12 for Fletcher an 8 for Jarvis. We will accept probably 1-2 less for each. We certainly wont let them go on the cheap as we dont need to sell. Although i suspect we wont see either in a wolves shirt again.Local press may have stated that but theres no way they are worth that much..and they wont be sold for that much either.Not a wolves fan by the way....
saints bigger club?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
league 1 recently and when you were also rans in the prem you played at the dell in front on 15 000.
I dont see alot of pedigree just posturing. welcome to the prem but get used to losing most weeks and being a small fish.We played in front of 15000 fans at the dell because that was the capacity of the ground. Idiot!The reason our attendance is lower than yours was because we have rebuilt 1 stand during this last season, so hence reduced attendance. We have had an abysmal season you were top of your league for most of the season and despite all of this only have an average gate of 1000 more. I am not claiming that wolves are a huge club but you saints fans really do have delusions of grandeur.Do Wolves fans not realise that it will be the players and their agents who decide whether a player will leave. It doesn't matter what the club wants, if a player and his agent are really wanting to move on, then a move will happen.
For the person Saints supporters (we all have them) get used to the fact that whilst the club does now have superb financial backing it is also very business like about costs. We will not pay silly money for players, we have a widespread network of scouts and will find good quality additions at sensible money. It is the crazy lot along the coast who sign average players at high prices on silly salaries and then go bust!

Just as an observation who writes this utter rubbish about barnsley fc. There is very little money to spend. Patrick cryne is on his way out of oakwell and we are looking for new investors to take over the club.if noone can be found barnsley fc will cease to exist in two years time.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How do you work that out when Barnsley are self sufficient and can run without investment but it would be a bonus if it could be found


We can all hope so


we make money, just, from day to day running,we have funds from player sales ie vaz te, 500k, butterfield 1.5 - 3m, plus any others. the wage bill is reducing. 2 out of 10 try again !


Never heard anyone speak so much rubbish about a subject they clearly dont know what theyre on about......cryne doesnt invest and will never invest again......we have enough money from player sales and will always have enough money as we are rich in producing good players from lower leagues and then sell em on for profit.


The op is correct I used to work for Barnsley FC as a contractor Patrick Cryne pumps between 2-3 million a year to keep them a float as they don't make enough to keep the club going, if he leaves they are in real trouble and will need to find an investor ASAP!

This used to be the case untill last season but we have completely changed the financial structure of the club over the last season to make our selves run self - sufficient in the same way as clubs such as Watford and Palace.(1)(4)Should point out that Watford are still in quite significant debt, but I dont doubt that they are well run. If you want financial stability, Leeds are the best run club in the football league, but as proved this season, that does not reflect onto the football pitch. Bit of risk is required sometimes.On what basis are Leeds the best run football club in the football league. There are teams in league two that consistently make a profit, allbeit only small. Is Leeds wage bill lower than than their income otherwise they are not well run!!

Norwich have rejected a first approach from Villa for Paul Lambert. This is set to cause trouble at Carrow Road, where Lambert has reportedly informed the board that he would like to speak with any big club that cones in for him.

Really hope we can hold on to him! Funny how he seems to want to leave as soon as a remotely better comes in, a bit disappointing.(20)(7)Cos he showed so much loyalty to colchester.Not being funny but he has already done it when he left colchester for uHas reportedly'informed the board that he would like to speak with any big club that cones in for him'. What a ridiculous statement. Of course he hasnt said this and even if he had how would anyone be able to report this as fact, unless they have unlimited access behined the scenes at the club. Dont pretend to know about football if you are going to make up ridiculous speculation such as this. Go and follow netballVilla a big club make me laugh what have they won lately only got two good players given and agbonlahor and american owner how doesnt give any money to spent for players what the differents between norwich and villa norwich have heart and passion villa dont on the ball cityOh shut up. You speak as if Norwich are God's gift to football, when all you've done is poach players. Thanks to you lot up there, Grant Holt could be pulling on a white shirt. Lets hope he wears it the right way around for starters, eh?
Lambert has proved himself a worthy candidate for a proper job with a proper club that has all the academy and scouting networks to make his life interesting. You know its down to him you are where you are.Yeah, lets slate the man for wanting to better himself, because nobody else would leave their current job for something better would they?Even if he has said this, what difference does it make. Just because you go into a book shop doesn't mean you are going to buy a book. such interest though is a great lever for Mr Lambert persuading the Canaries board that it will take more than chicken feed to keep him. In any event, all these managers are just hired hands. you nicked him off Colchester, eventually someone lese will nick off you and you'll grab someone else's manager. Had Lambert had failed, you'd have all be baying to to have him sacked months ago, so there's no loyalty anymore on any side. Football's a fickle business. Live with it.Lambert has left every club he has ever managed at the first sign of any offer. Don't think he has stayed at any club more than 3 seasons.

If... IF an offer comes in, he will go!Perhaps Villa should employ the same tactics to get Lambert as Norwich did to get him away from Colchester!"he would like to speak with any big club that cones in for him"

Villa are not a big club, now if Liverpool came in for him I dont think the board would stand in his way but Villa is a sidewards step, not a step up which is what he will do when he leaves.

Lambert will stay for 1 more season IMO.If you listen to what Lambert had to say at the end of season dinner at Norwich on Monday you will see that he is very happy and hinted that his non commital nature when interviewed is just that and nothing more. He said that he expects to still be at Carrow Road next season and then says to Chris Goreham he expects to be interviewed by him a number of times yet.

Not concrete proof but a lot more substance than anything else mentioned. Plus Villa are much more likely to go down the Martinez route, Wigan have said they will let him speak with clubs if he wishes etc, sounds like an offer is imminent.

The Liverpool job is too soon, West Brom is a sideways step, Wigan would be a step down and and Scottish club, well they arent even worth considering with that joke of a league. Next season is when i will worry as he will continue his good work here and more than likely have much better offers than the poisoned chalice that is Aston Villa.

Noel Hunt: Cardiff £750,000
Adam Le Fondre: Leeds, Cardiff, Birmingham, Burnley, £1.25m

Possible Ins:

Yakubu: Blackburn £3m
Jordan Rhodes: Huddersfield £5m
Gary Hooper: Celtic 6m
Johan Elmander: Galatasaray £5m(15)(41)The only truth in this is their interest in Jordan Rhodes... Reading scored more than enough goals this year to keep them up in the prem...Hooper for 6 million?
We already knocked back 7 million in Jan
and hes banged in plenty since then.
Try 10 and then there might be a conversation.10 million for a player playing in the equivalent of league 2 i. dont. think. so.And what are people paying for rhodes? and he is in an even lower league, who would you have Hooper or liverpool 25mill striker? many of GREAT players have played in spl and Hooper is one of 3 to hit 5 in a game. your arrogence is blinding you, the everton new boy is banging in goals after leaving rangers and he got most of his spl goals from pen, where as hooper just scores with bad refs and 2 pens maybe. 50 goals in 2 season, cant wait for him to get picked for euros and open all yours eyes, he is worth at least 10mil. he would only leave to a big, he was second leading goal scorer in the championship and i believe only rooney has scoed more then him in the uk.5 mil for rhodes should be around 8 and neil lennon said 35million for hooper because he is as good as carrol-apparently

They beleive now that Guardiola has left and with Messi having won everything in Spain they can tempt him with the new challenge of the Premier league and joining up with fellow Argentines Tevez and Aguero. If theirs any interest from Messi when he's approached it will be backed up with an offer to Barca of around what Real paid for Ronaldo (£80-£85 million)(27)(23)Not a chanceMessi has said so many times he will stay at Barca for the rest of his career and play one final season back in Argentina
He will not be leaving it just wont happen

heard from an agent that 2 clubs have made offers for Jay Rod - Blackburn and Southampton(12)(9)Blackburn i'd wager any money i have he doesn't move there :) .. if he moves it will be to a PREMIER LEAGUE club. Jay Rodriguez he's one of our own !Blackburn...dead sure way for a promising players development to be short lived under the tutelage of that soggy lettuce Steve Kean....not a chanceAs a Saints fan I would love to see him sign for us! Can't see him going to a club that's just got relegated and will lose there best players and struggle to get out of the hardest league first time round.

Emile Heskey - QPR £2.5m
Kaka - Chelsea £57.5m
Joe Cole - Southampton (loan)
Billy Sharp - Wigan £7m(6)(50)Heskey's out of contract, kaka isn't worth that anymoreKaka 57.5m what greek dollars lol
were u get ur info 2006Heskey is out of contract.Maybe I'm missing something, but how do players out of contract, ie Heskey, demand a fee, who would get the money as no contract to buy out of, or alternatively is this person full of the you know whatNo way is Billy Sharp leaving Saints..Absolute rubbishNo Chance on Cole why Southampton the only low prem team he would go to is west ham(if they get Promoted) or he will sign for lille. Heskey is free agent Kaka for 57.5 mill is no chance and sharp is not going to leave Southampton and to Wigan 0 chanceWigan wouldn't pay £7m for Billy Sharp who is loving his NEW CLUB Southampton, who also wouldn't support the wages of Joe Cole! If Lyon can't afford his wages, us Saints surely won't break our structure and our way of thinking for him!Riiiight...heskey is on a free so won't cost £2.5mil, kaka was worth that huge amount... About four years ago...and Billy sharp will not leave Southampton after half a season and besides, he is worth no where near £7mil. Please refrain from posting rubbish on this site as it is clear you don't have even the vaguest knowledge of football.LOL the person for this post cant even be bothered to check when players r out of contractIf Wigan were interested in Sharp they would have bid for him in January when Southampton got him for less then £2m.Heskey is on free as his contract is up :)


15 May 2012 19:52:34
SOUTHAMPTON have had a bid accepted for Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez. The England Under-21 international will discuss personal terms on the south coast as Saints prepare for life in the Premier League, after a seven year absence.

22 year old Rodriguez who hit 15 goals this season for Burnley is understood to be keen on a move to the Saints after the clubs agreed a £7.5m transfer fee.(39)(15)Jay turned down Southampton in the summer and would favorably prefer to stay north with Burnley already turning down offers from Everton and Newcastle .. The fee however would be about right if you were to land him.Heard the same rumour....7.5 million! Not likelyWhere's this been reported ?Your be there for 1 year :)I think Saints will turn alot of heads in the Premier League..people who dismiss newly promoted teams saying they will go straight back down are narrow minded..especially after Norwich,QPR and Swansea this season. £7.5M is alot of money, but with rumours on this site you just take it with a pinch of salt.7.5m will be about right as Burnley are quoted as saying they want 8m.

Just as an observation who writes this utter rubbish about barnsley fc. There is very little money to spend. Patrick cryne is on his way out of oakwell and we are looking for new investors to take over the club.if noone can be found barnsley fc will cease to exist in two years time.(3)(8)How do you work that out when Barnsley are self sufficient and can run without investment but it would be a bonus if it could be foundWe can all hope sowe make money, just, from day to day running,we have funds from player sales ie vaz te, 500k, butterfield 1.5 - 3m, plus any others. the wage bill is reducing. 2 out of 10 try again !!Never heard anyone speak so much rubbish about a subject they clearly dont know what theyre on about......cryne doesnt invest and will never invest again......we have enough money from player sales and will always have enough money as we are rich in producing good players from lower leagues and then sell em on for profit.The op is correct I used to work for Barnsley FC as a contractor Patrick Cryne pumps between 2-3 million a year to keep them a float as they don't make enough to keep the club going, if he leaves they are in real trouble and will need to find an investor ASAP!

CHRIS WILDER - rumoured to be leaving and heading back to the conference to manage a more ambitious club.

Can you tell me your ource for firstly Wilder leaving and to a more ambitious club - who is the club. And PDC is not, would not come to Oxford. He will leave Swindon, either by being sacked for the recent race issue or if not proven, to a bigger club than Swindon. But please, unless you are prepared to provide your source and which club in the Conference this is total rubbishAnd also, Oxford do not have any funds to source such a deal....what nonsenceWhat utter garbage, why would he join their biggest rivals in a lower division?
DevonGreenHa!! Very good..when is your next gig? Goes to show despite all the sick vile nonsense aimed at Di Canio by Oxford fans they would dearly love to have him there!! Haha..listen sonshine..Oxford are in dire financial straights!! The cannot afford to get rid of Wilder...your boards sole aim is to stay in the league..nothing are only a small club now...and they are aware that ANOTHER fall into non league obscurity will just about finish the club! behind the scenes is real fear, if things are going badly at Christmas time you wait and see what actions they take!! Don't believe me? Well "Rats leaving a sinking ship" will be what you lot are screaming!! You better get behind Wilder and hope he can do as well again next season as this...

Everton rarely play football these days. Main move is up to head of either Cahill or Felliani.

Watford Rumours:

Paul Taylor is not going to Watford.
Troy Deeney is not going to Millwall.
Sam Baldock will have a season long loan at Watford of West Ham get promoted.
Tomasz Kuszczak will sign on a free transfer from Manchester United.
Tommy Smith might sign for Watford now that QPR are still in the Premier League.
Watford might sign James Collins from Shrewsbury.
Another Watford target is Omarr Lawson who has recently had a trial.

These are all genuin facts.(8)(13)Apparently according to press reports, Allardyce has already told close friend Paul Jewell that he will have first option on Sam Baldock at Ipswich.We'd be extremely happy if this all happenedI just don't see us getting Kuszczak, Smith and Collins. Maybe...just maybe.... but who knows. Add Heidar in there and it would be a dream Summer.Do you see any of these happening Ed? {Ed025's Note - very doubtful mate^ "Any of these happening" - "no mate".

So Taylor is not not going to Watford and any other outcome is very doubtful? Great signing for us eh......

Garry hooper staying at Celtic .
Charlie mulgrew to EPL.

Hail hail.

What's with the Southampton fans thinking their a bigger club than they actually are .

Bottom line . Will you's be playing in the champions league this year ........fighting to stay up me thinks.get a grip.(15)(15)We will always play in a bigger league than u.Not hard to qualify for champions league when u only got 2 teams in your league lmao good luck your need itNo truly ambitious player is really going to prefer 180 mins of qualifying round CL football and a career playing L2 level sides domestically to testing themselves in the Prem.

Hooper wouldn't cut it in the PL, not good enough. Don't know why Southampton's fans want him so badly. many better options in the npc.

To add a real rumour I heard

James Forrest is signing for Reading.Two games in the champios
league home and away
and out
anything higher than mickey mouse
league you l get stuffedEPL is a much bigger league than the SPL! Celtic are a big club, but compared to the EPL clubs they are mid table at best...oh and you wont be in the Champions League for too long....Playing in the champions league until the end of AugustRangers and celtic have big stadiums (sort of) but the actual playing squad would struggle to survive in the championship. youre not a big club compared to the rest of the world ! you are in that little bubble we like to call the spl.Btw is this the same mulgrew that couldnt hack it in the championship with wolvesWith the squad celtic have we would finish mid table in epl but with epl tv money wo would soon be top 4 but southampton will alway be phCeltic? Mid table EPL?
I assume you mean relegation fodder.
Seriously what is up with you Scots thinking the SPL is the greatest league in the world?Plenty come to Celtic Park and seldom leave with a single point.
9 million fanbase worldwide you clowns have no idea what Celtic could achieve with EPL finances?
Alex Ferguson knows how big a Club Celtic is and he's pissed your League for 20 years.How do you get Celtic being mid table team to "Scots" think spl is the best league? we know the league is not the best but Celtic is a great club in the wrong leagu(maybe) so we get no respect. and do youthink epl is the best? because what i see is man u wining every year, now its the 2 man teams. for a league that is "crap" your english teams sure do like going to it to get players. Celtic would walk right through league 2 and 1 and championship, if we ever make it to epl and get the same money we would stir things up in epl and make it alot more exciting.Ha ha you lot make me laugh southampton your right are not bigger then Celtic ,, but I stress ,yet but the ambition our club has will take us all the d
Way not just to take part in the championsleague but to go somewhere in it we will survive and to oh from there trust me COME ON SAINTSCeltic fans get real you may have a big stadium but thats it u will be out of the champions league by august, group stages at best and southampton have big investment and go eat a mcdonalds ;)

But if West Ham are looking at bidding £5m for Snodgrass or Jarvis then Moxey will just laugh at that as Jarvis is 3x the player of Snodgrass.

Apart from Andy Johnson, not too bothered about himJunior Hoilett and Nathaniel Clyne will end up at bigger clubs. I cannot see you getting Jay Rodriguez either.I'm sure Reading are interested in those players as I'm sure 10 or 11 other Premier League teams are and realistically Reading will end up with 0 or 1 of those if indeed they bid for them.

Yakubu's words were to the fact that the players that have relegated the club should stay and help them get promoted. So seems from this that Yakubu is staying and Hoilett has agreed to join Chelsea. FACT. Also heard that Keane is more then confident that he will be keeping his job, he is not worried about this at all.(8)(20)He's actually opted to join spurs

Plenty of sources have been linking Leeds with Green and Ward, and it looks like those moves are indeed close to completion. But the one that seems to have slipped under the radar is Greg Halford, the Portsmouth utility man, who Warnock seems to see as his replacement for Connolly. The winger-cum-fullback is well versed in the Championship and had an excellent season last term. It seems he's been in discussions with Leeds, and several other clubs, for some time now.

Ok people lets get involved, i would like all Millwall supporters to post on this link targets Millwall should go for, but lets be serious about this, realistic targets only please. ST-2(5)(4)George Porter from OrientOne target could be your mum but if you are looking for serious ones then i would like to see you get a couple of loanees from some premier league clubs... how about Jacob Mellis or Pogba from Utd? Maybe loan signings are the way to go, just look at Jack Cork's situation as well as Ryan Bertrand.I think you guys should try to loan some young EPL players like gokan toure, billy clifford, Paul Pogba, Frimpong or Affene all could do with 1st team football and take Jack Cork, Scott Sinclair and Jack wiltshire all have had successful loan spells and will really benefit Millwall as a whole.

Whilst plenty of attention is being given to Lambert, Martinez and Rodgers as a potential replacement for McCleish, Villa have also added Steve Bruce, Steve Maclaren and Mick McCarthy to their shortlist.

Villa are aware that Martinez turned them down before and that Rodgers has consistently committed himself to Swansea. Lambert is known to want to leave Norwich but the issue is that Lambert almost certainly does not regard the Villa job as the right career choice.

The Villa hierarchy still hold Maclaren in high regard but are aware that fans' protest might reignite. The same applies to McCarthy.

This leaves Steve Bruce as the obvious contender.(14)(7)How is Lambert 'known' to want to leave Norwich, had plans for Norwichs coming season at last nights end of season meal! Ruined a perfectly plausible argument there!Lambert known to want to leave Norwich? You must be kidding, he is loving life at Norwich. The only way Lambert would leave is to go to one of the big clubs. And Villa ain't big enough I'm afraid.Do you mean the Steve Bruce that used to manage Birmingham? Super Lambo isn't leaving Norwich you deluded fools. You're not a big club anymore,so stop pretending to be one!'known?' Known by who? It is not 'known' that Lambert wants to leave Norwich.Villa need to get over themselves saying they are a top 7 team on SKY just who do u think u are the last time you done that was under o'niel and that wass down to him being a brilliant manager cause look whats happened to sunderland. so pls villa fans get over yourselves cause ur not a top 7 club and wont be for a long time just accpt it causeyou may get relegated next year if you hire wrong manager andI'm not a Villa fan, but Villa are a much bigger club than Norwich and always will be, more history, better pedigree and more financial clout. One good season doesn't make a big club just as one poor season doesn't make you a bad club. Lambert will leave if the chance comes.The same old names. Its about time some teams took a gamble on unknown or lower league managers. There are a lot of good managers in the lower leagues.Neither Martinez or Lambert will join Villa... Nowrich or Wigan may not be 'bigger' clubs than Villa, but my god they are better clubs!And MirrorSport understands Lambert is keen on the vacant post as he believes in Villas potential.Poster 1 try watching his interview where he paused for an eternity when asked if he would be at Norwich next season then said he could not answer the questionPoster 1 try watching his interview where he paused for an eternity when asked if he would be at Norwich next season then said he could not answer the question


Go back 18 months to the Lambert to Burnley debacle. When asked if he was going to be at Norwich by the end of the week he said, i have nothing to say, im not willing to comment or there is nothing for me to say. Which was true, there was nothing in the story and nothing for him too say, but by not giving a clear answer he squeezed more cash out of the board and used it to great effect. Hes not going anywhere just yet!

Also these sorts of things are commonly carried out by the likes of David gill!Yes, once Fergie has given any transfer the green light, that's when Gill gets involved, etc.It isnt pub football, transfers are not negotiated over a glass of wine and a packet of crisps after games.Yeah, because Carrick the Newcastle fan who has played most games for United this season and has played very well will sign for a rubbish football team who has no chance of doing anything, ever!

He will go to the Championship at worst for a decent fee, in the region of £1.5m i would have thought. Hes quick, powerful and showed that he can score goals at Championship level given the chance at the end of last season. Someone like Leeds could do a lot lot worse than looking at him (if they can afford him and his wages? Debatable i know.)Behave, gills a good club why would he leave the prem to go to league 2?I've heard that Cardiff could sign him

Couple of LFC rumours that seem most likely to happen to me are;

- Hoilett from blackburn. Out of contract so will be cheap. Won't be a free transfer as he is under 24 so Blackburn will be due conpensation

- Tello from Barcelona. Although Barca rate him highly, apparently he might be interested in a move else where to play more first team football. Again out of contract but conpensation due

-Elm from AZ Alkmaar. Rumoured to cost around 8 mil as contract expires in a year. Highly rated in the dutch league.

Not saying any of these are definates, other clubs will no doubt be interested in all of these players but they seem most likely signings to me at the moment for LFC as I can't see the owners pumping another 120 odd million on average players again.(21)(18)Ha... Tello to Liverpool, best joke I've heard for a while!Why would anyone want to go to Liverpool? What can they offer them, history? lmao.

There is suggestion that Lambert wants to leave or that he will. I really do not think that Villa will be his destination when he does go either. Villa is too much of a risk for him at the moment and he is not yet proven in the prem. 1 more good season at Norwich and he will have his pick of a lot better jobs than Villa.

pne are set to raid stevenage for players such as Roberts, Laird, Wilson, Byrom and possibly Freeman(8)(28)Didn't Westley sign in his contract that he wasn't allowed to sign stevenage players?WHY would any player who have Championship clubs looking at signing them follow a manager who openly dropped them when they were heading for promotion and joined a club in major termoil like Preston. Would any decent player follow Westley to a club that's only signing players who are on Bosmans this year. All these players are in contract and would command a mid level transfer amount. PNE WILL NOT sign any Stevenage players unless they are FREE.......100% factThat was only till the summer ,he agreed not to make any moves for stevenage player dueing the season ,but now the season is over he will make moves for roberts who wants to move back to the north ,laird,byrom and boswickTrue but that clause was only in the january window mate.Yes but that was only for this season. i.e. in last Januarys transfer window. He is now able to sign Stevenage players.Erm Laird is out of contract....FACT! not to sure about the rest.After watching Stevenage last night....Just 9 shots on goal and only 4 on target. With just 40% of possession and beaten by a very poor side.....I think PNE should just sign all of Stevenage and stay in League 1 for the next 10 years.

Ben X.We paid £8m a few months ago and he has scored 13 in 14 - you think Spuds will get him for £22m? Mike Ashley made Liverpool pay £35m for Carroll, imagine how much Papiss will be..

To all PNE fans who think you've pulled off a major signing in John Welsh, you haven't, he's not even that good, and certainly will not get you promoted.(10)(4)Sounds like another sad pathetic tranny fanSour grapes how can you say that about a player who gave you great service and played over 40 games last season.

Following relegation Bolton are tracking poeple they believe help them get back to the premiership, those are:
Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield / Jay Rodriguez - Burnley
Matt Mills - Leicester
Danny Guthrie - Newcastle
A Left Winger(11)(43)You wont get any of themHah, this is so funny, Bolton are in debt and will have to offload most off their players, on top of this twelve players are out of contract. They have a third rate manager, who has no tactical knowledge what so ever and jay rod would never ever ever leave for a team burnley fans hate so much.Bolton are not in debt they owe £100m to their owner who has confirmed he will continue to back the club and the £20m loan by Barclays has been extended, get your facts right. Burnley (being bitter since 2010) because we are a bigger club.Matt mills likely to be heading to leedsGuthrie will stay in the Premier League and play for one of the Midlands clubs. He wants to move back home.

I'd guess at Aston Villa, but depends who their manager will be.You will find Bolton releasing or shifting on 10-12 players before they even think about buying anyone!

bristol city are to rebuild their squad with the signing of left back PAUL DIXON from dundee utd when his contract runs out, city are also interested in highly rated northampton town cm MICHAEL JACOBS

Both of them are coming to derby
as we are massively interested and
Bristol city just escaped relegation and derby top half finish.You decide

So what derby fan dont think bristol city will be push overs we bounce back

Derby are a much bigger club than Bristol City! They attract an average of 27,000 crowd per week and in the prem 33,000!
The club as a whole is massive for championship standards and in my opinion i think they will get play offs next year

Student tickets and free mobiles? Well done Derby, absolutely huuuge! BTW, a BCFC season ticket holder at Derby Uni was offered this! Forest are bigger and I'm a lifelong City fan.

Sure Derby get more support at the moment but they wouldnt get any more fans in the prem then they get now. Bristol City would outsell Derby twice over in the prem as Bristol is one of the biggest citys in the country and Derby is tiny.

What are the criteria for determining the size of a club? Back up your claims with reasoning.
Regardless of size Derby are a more attractive proposition right now, the squad is settled and moving forward.

What bristols 21000 seater stadium would outsell derbys 33000 seater stadium twice over, good one, even if u get the one your putting planning permission in for then thts only planned for initial 30000 with a 40000 option and pride park has an option to add 10 - 20000 seats aswell if it wanted to double tier

yeah well you didnt did you, it doesnt matter about the size of your stadium or how many supporters you have blackpool have been in the prem and could be again and they have hardly anyone turn up and thier stadium is tiny so....... COYR(3)(29)What a load of rubbish! Jacobs has already turned Derbys contract offer down!Jacobs hasnt rejected Derby. Bothroyd rejected an bid but the team was never revealed. We are favorites to sign him, and will get him, trust me. As for Dixon, i know hes signing for us.Lmao. So when your manager says he's turned down our offer. You know he's signing for you ha!He's out of contract so turning the offer down just means if derby are to get him we'll have to up our compensationI didnt write that mini COYRs15 May 2012 09:14:59

He's coming to Derby. We're talking contracts with the kid right now, althought it may go to a tribunialHe has rejected your contract that Derby put to him! Nothing to do Northampton agreeing a fee. That's come from Clough himself. Dear oh dear he's not going to derby so get over it!Bristol City do not bounce back. You have gotten worse and worse since that play off year. You were saying "We're on the up" after a few wins mid this season and look where that got you?Dixon is going millwall mateHmmm. Clough said it himself? Where? Cus in the paper yesterday he said "We're still working with this one" And that we're very interested.
Stupid person haha. When he comes to derby i will laugh at you.

Martin Jol is keen on signing Gennaro Gattuso on a free transfer from AC Milan in the summer for Fulham after declaring his ambition on getting into the top 6.(22)(5)Martin Jol stated at the start of the season that he wanted to reduce the average size of the squad, surely by bringing Gattuso in it will have the reverse effectI thgought Gattusso's career was over due to a serious injuryDiarra and Gattuso centre mid would be a bit defensive


14 May 2012 20:40:56
Many people saying that Barnsley don't have a big transfer budget when yet do they know or seem to listen to the radio and the fit that there is a suspected 1-2 million pound budget from past sales and future ones in order to maintain a championship status, know you facts before you start posting rubbish!(1)(13)Sorry to burst your bubble but 1-2 million is a pretty small budget these days...Yeh but its not a few hundred like previous rumours have stated. weve got £500,000 from Vaz Te gunna West Ham, Butterfield will cost beyween £1.5 and £2 million with other fringe player leaving. The only reason why Cryne and Rowing don't dish out the money is bcos the cock up Robins did with the loan wages of Harewood, McShane and the short term deal for O'Connor. O'Connor was on £20,000 a week, with half of that coming out of Cryne's back pocket, McShane was on £12,000 a week and Harewood was on a mere £5,000 a week but still had to pay his wages when he was injured for the last 2 months of the season.


14 May 2012 20:39:17
Last season Berbatov was the premier leagues top scorer, this season he has started just 5 games. I would bet my house on the fact if he had started the other 33 games he would have scored more than the 6 goals that City won the league by. Fergie has cost his team the league and maybe he should realise that he is NOT bigger than the club and maybe he should consider stepping aside? Thoughts please.(33)(28)Fergie is utd, without him they wouldn't of been close to city this season! Utd will regret the day he steps down.. I bey your not even from Manchester.. Sunderland fan.Who would you want instead though? Theres not too many managers about who could step into his shoes.For Berbatov to have played you would have to take Welbeck out of the team who scored 12 goals! Which means Berbatov would have had to score 18 goals to make the 6 goal difference!Berbatov is a 30 goal a season man. So 18 in the premiership would of been easy!Being that it was 8 goals difference and not 6 shows u dont no ur facts already

just heard from the horses mouth,the norwich manager is off to aston villa.genuine(23)(28)I know i shouldnt bite, but this is bcks. Nothing has been decided, Lambert was at the end of season dinner last night openly discussing his plans for Norwich City's close season. If a deal had been discussed and was close to being finalised this would not have happened. He may be in the running, but to say its done is 100% untrue.

Walsall to sign Asa Hall.

He has turned down a deal at Oxford. It has been confirmed that he has been offered more money at a club in a higher league nearer to home. He lives in Dudley so there is only one club it could be. Surprised as thought the Saddlers had no cash.

I am an Oxford fan and I would just like to tell Walsall fans that you are about to waste quite a large wage on seriously limited player who couldn't really cut it in L2. 2 good months in 20.(8)(5)Hes on his way to shrewsburyNot likely to happen, Walsall wont offer him a big wage! More likely to go to the shrews!Heard he may go to coventry, and far from a waste he is a decent player who will benefit from a higher clubHaving watched him every week for 2 years I can assure you that he is not a decent player. Except for the last 2 months he has been the consistent weak link in our very mediocre side.Has signed for ShrewsburyHes signed for the shrews OFFICIAL

check the club websiteSo have i and to be perfectly honest ive played with him in training so i might have a fairer point

i do see some silly rumours on here like saints buying good players why would they go there(8)(14)Do some research and you would not have to ask such silly questions!Because southampton is an up coming club new training fersilities worth 15mil great ground and a good place to live is why they would join southampton...they were once a a big-ish club, I think they will get there again EVENTUALLY! They had a fall from grace but are on the up, just getting annoying that saints fans automatically think they are on par with your liverpools and chelsea's so no one will take them seriously! I can see some pretty decent players going there this summer but no top names. I'm a west brom fan....a club that CURRENTLY aren't any bigger or smaller than the saints and I wish them all the best for there first season back in the best league in the world! Plus I thjink lallana is a quality player....give him to us!!Dont you mean lambert unitedSo now we are Lambert United. I recall not long ago some comments on this site that Lambert would never prosper in the Championship, that League One was his limit!
Saints continually stress they are focused on making their players the best they can be, and it is no accident that Lambert is now starting to fulfill his potential. There are few clubs in the Premiership who have the training and support facilities that Saints are building. If you guys bothered to look at the players now within the Saints squad you would see that is the case with a number of others and I believe there will be a wider recognition of this next season.The Lambert united slur is so obviously rooted in jealousy. Same people said he was L1 level at best and got made to look stupid.

Even ignoring Lambert, the likes of Lallana, Schneiderlin, Cork, Sharp, Davis & Hooiveld were amongst the best players in the league last season.

Definitely a resurgent club, Good manager, heavy investment in already excellent academy, loads of money and a sensible chairman.

All who are jealous of Saints recent revival will be disappointed if you expect them to struggle next season.

Young gardener brann herd hog yoyng winger all very good furture looks good villaWhelan has been incredibly loyal to Martinez and I don't see him leaving Wigan for a Villa side that are rapidly losing Lerner's support.Why would Lambert or Martinez leave their current clubs for Aston Villa? Above them in the league so any move would be a backwards oneNewcastle finished above Chelsea this season, yet I'm pretty sure Pardew wouldn't see going to Chelsea as a backwards move. Villa are a much bigger club than Norwich and Wigan and with a good transfer window would easily be able to finish above both of them.

Don't worry, normal service to resume next seasonDon't you will with notebook Coterrill.We beat you with 10 men if you remember.Normal service to resume next season. You have half your first team out of contract, with no option to renew as, with no disrespect, you have no one to pay them. The Doughty Estate won't want any more debt as if they did your tinpot club would be worth even less, meaning you also can't sign anyone.

Burnley have had 2 bids turned down today

1.2M for Jason Shackell from Derby Co who want around 2.5M for him and 200,000 for Luke O'Neil from Mansfield Town who value hm at 500,000

Dont think we have a chance with Shackell but I expect we will get O'Neil for around 350,000(11)(3)Shackell is not worth £2.5m, ..he was useless when he played for wolves! ...mind you, all of our defenders are useless!We dont even want Shackell, its a none story, and the bid for O'Neil was a lot less then £200k not even £100k, Mansfeild are only looking for around £100k not £500kSo what Shackell was useless when he played for Wolves? He will be Derby's captain next season, and is one of the best centre halves in the division. Pique was useless for United, is he not worth £2.5m either?

Any real southampton rumours ed?(4)(10)Any "rumours" around will be pure speculation. We know how Cortese and Adkins do their business (behind closed doors) and whilst this is frustrating for supporters, I find the "Swiss" efficiency that is now within Saints very refreshing.
Lets remember that fountain of football knowledge (Lowe) who was so keen to ingratiate himself with the supporters when he told us pre-season Saints had the strongest squad they had ever had. That was the season we were relegated from the Premiership!
So, let's keep patient and trust in our current management. A club that is investing £15m in its training facilities and not bragging about it, is one that I believe we can trust to do the right thing.More of a fact than a rumour, going stright back downGrant holt singning for 50k. this is big money for norwich2 above is a jealous pompey supporter...

Estonian international striker Andres Oper to sign on a year long deal with Yeovil after talks for a contract renewal with Nea Salamis Famagusta broke down.(9)(2)

Carlos Cuellar set to join Southampton after being released by Aston Villa.(25)(19)He has been released to allow him to go back home to Spain. If he wanted to stay in England it would be with VillaNo, he was released because Villa didnt want to keep him on... He wanted to stay at Villa (you only have to look at his tweets to see that) but he was forced out...Oh dearHow many are saints signing,lolHe is off to Roma he admitted that


14 May 2012 16:08:42
Portsmouth are set to sign Tommy Rutter on a free, while wrapping up woking pair Elvis Hammond and Luke Robinson on a free too as their contracts will be terminated. Elvis Hammond also linked with a move to AFC Wimbledon, but a move to Portsmouth is more likelier(3)(17)Pompey cannot add to their whopping wage bill until at least another 14 players go!I suppose Elvis doesn't really need to be paid!
Can't see anyone signing for Pompey until it is financially certain they will be around next year and have sufficient funds to pay staff. Do you think there are players willing to put themselves and their families into that situation?
You lot really do need to learn some lessons in economics.Why on earth would Pompey sign Hammond who last season played in the BSS...The only Elvis the Skates will be signing is currently resident at gracelands....No signings until at least 14 players are shipped out!


14 May 2012 16:01:45

Stoke's Andrew Davies is a target for Notts County, the central defender is set to command a fee of around £400,000.

Spurs young striker Harry Kane will be shipped back out on loan with Sheffield Wednesday, Brighton and Peterborough all looking to add to their forward line.

Australian Shane Smeltz could leave Perth Glory for Sheffield Utd. The tall striker would be priced around the £500,000k mark.(6)(8)Shane Smeltz is a Kiwi, not Aussie!£400k for someone who has never played a full season with one club? He's had more loans than the Greek Government!Smeltz is awful I live in New Zealand and the standard out here wouldnt match league 2 standard in England.Davies is out of contract and is a free agent so how can there be a fee of £400,000 and he will be signing for Bradford City after enjoying his loan spell


14 May 2012 16:31:05
Shrewsbury Town's first signing of the summer will definitely be Aaron Wildig.

Manager Graham Turner is also interested in the prospect of bringing in Everton's 20 year-old centre back Aristote Nsiala. He impressed against Shrewsbury last season whilst on loan at Accrington Stanley.(9)(3)

Peterbourough's Paul Taylor is going to watford with mark Yeats going the other way on loan with a view to a permanent deal(10)(5)This one has legs - clubs met at league 1 play off match at stevenage (Watford looking at Freeman and Boro at Bostwick) - deal for Taylor is £750k + Yeates - who will replace Boyd who is off to MiddlesboroughLmfao. Maybe if it was 1.5 or 2 plus players. The chairman has stated that he would rather let the player go for free next year than take a small fee!£750k is not a small fee. £1.5m-£2m for a player who's had one good season with one year of his contract left, after Peterborough said that he will be leaving if he won't sign a new contract is ridiculous.


14 May 2012 16:16:40
Reading manager Brian McDermott has made an approach for Bolton striker Kevin Davies.

West Ham have apparently been in contact for former captain Nigel Reo-Coker.(18)(12)Approach made but Bolton want to keep him.

He says he wants to stay --- but will the lure of Premier League football pull him away?

Saints also want him back.Please be trueDavies is staying at Bolton, he doesn't want another relegation on his CV next season because that's where half of the st teams so called in for him will be.


14 May 2012 15:36:19
David McNally says that any approach for Paul Lambert will be deflected so he's not leaving us. Villa aint famous anymore, so stop thinking you have a god given right to just poach people. Anyway, PL won't go there because of what they did to his mate Martin O'Neill.(17)(7)Can't see Villa getting Lambert or Rodgers. Both have more ambition I would say.Just as Lambert was loyal to Colchester when Norwich came calling, yeah??

C'ya!!Get the facts right about Martin O'neil. As O'neil always does he walked out on Villa as he wanted more money from the chairman on players and the fact of the matter is O'Neill spent £120 million on players that he hardly played and you cant blame the chairman for not giving him more money after wasting his last lot so O'neil threw his toys out the pram and left. He will do exactly the same at Sunderland. There is no denying O'neil is a good motivator but he does three years at a club and moves on as he always has a little tantrum and in my book he is so overrated , yes he's a good manager but thats it.
As for Lambert if he wants to go he will leave as simple as that- Money talks and Vila are a bigger club than Norwich.For the record Villa didn't do anything to O'Neill he was the one that walked out and still not revealed the reason why he leftBetter being not famous anymore than never have been famous and never will be famous. For the record, I think Villa will come in for Lambert and he will go. Villa are a much, much bigger club and this is an opportunity for Lambert to work with some top players. Listen to how non-committal he was in his interview. He's going, deal with it.What top players .think you should look again at your team

Kyle McFadzean looks set to leave the club for Sussex neighbours Brighton for £1.1m.

Gary Alexander will link up with Steve Evans at Rotherham, whilst Cody McDonald will leave Coventry and join Crawley Town for a cut £400k(8)(13)Cody McDonald not going anywhere, we paid £500k and Andy Thorn has already said he will be key to the team next season and why on earth would he go to Crawly.Your owner wants some of her money back i doubt weather you will have the sort of funds like you've had for the last couple of seasons plus with the small crowds you get you wont be able to afford big wages anymoreWould that be the owner that's trying to buy 50% of a ground with a £90 million turnover, the one that has stated they will e backing the manager with new players an the crowds that still average between 13,000 and 14,000. I think you need a reality check.

Kerim Frei
Jermaine Beckford
Matt Mills(9)(33)Kerim Frei? Behave, in the unlikely case Fulham let him go out on loan, you can only see him going to a team that will be in the promotion mix-up next year, NOT Leeds!Agree without the comment above frei is the one of the hottest teenage prospects in the premier league ( I'm not a fulham fan btw ) why would beck ford return to Leeds when Leicester will be looking for auto next season, same with matt mills and nimely will go out on loan to a low championship side so yeah LeedsKevin Volland has signed for Hoffenheim. Keep up!Why does every Leeds fan think they're gonna sign beckford, leeds carnt afford his boots!I'm a Leeds fan and I think them targets are bull, and on another note Leicester fan you was going for promotion last season and was nowhere near and it was funny when beckford was loving it and playing up to the Leeds fans on last game of season, he was loving it so much he got subbed coz of itDirty Leeds can have beckford, will drive him there if he wants to go.
Just need jermaine to drop his wages by half.. do you think he would? Seriously?Kevin volland was already at hoffenhiemBeckford isnt fancied by person and he still loves leeds so its possibleFrei will be loaned out for a season to the championship and leeds is a possible placeI would love to see leeds sign all of these players, pearson dosen't like beckford and volland was already at hoffenheim. nimely done well at coventry and fetfatzidis is greece's best youngster.

Tottenham's Gareth Bale to leave this summer and join Serie A giants Inter for £35 million(8)(34)Ridiculous rumour. try again.Bale will be offered a move to Man City with Adebayor and Adam Johnson moving the other way.Bale is an overrated player everyone is basing him on his game against Milan last season if Spurs were offered 35 million for himn they should bite their arm off and accept it as they should have done with Modric.He should go to MADRID for the experience! and to WORK with SPECIAL ONE!Yeah he can watch a decent team sat on the bench! he would be just like Michael owen at real an utter flop.I love how you you can sit on your computer and say hes a flop when you know damn well you would love to have him in your team name one other left midfield player in the premiership who has stood out this season......bale... end ovHe wants to play for a decent team so this is likely

Blackburn to launch a raid on Blackpool ( If they don't go up ) for winger Matty Phillips(6)(22)Not really a raid then if yous are only going for one player (which you won't get)Not a chance! If he leaves he will go to a Prem Club.At the moment going to Blackburn from any club is going to be seen as a step down,with all the turmoil at Ewood park i would imagine that any player worth his salt would either look elsewhere or simply sign for Rovers for non football reasons i.e:better wages etc....Daz

If Chelski win on Saturday then Redknapp MUST GO. We were in a position to challenge for the title back in Jan, but Harry lost it. We have a good team and now it is time to push on. If we keep Redknapp then it's Eurpoa all the way, with the right man (or woman Hope Powell?) we could win the league.

Conr62(7)(26)Yet how you praised him when you were doing well? just went through a bad run of formGive the man a chance,the guy had a hell of alot to deal with during this season....court case,England talk,most clubs would love Redknapp at the helm.....DazAre you having a laugh mate, spurs were on the other end of the league, if it wasn't for Harry, you would have ended in League 1The usual moaning Spurs fans is that all you lot do moan. How can you blame Harry after what he has done for your club. You want to realise how lucky you lot are and what he has done for your team. Spurs,West Ham and Arsenal fans are the biggest moaners ever.

Get a lifeOh boo hoo, before Harry came in you were nowhere near the top 4!Crazy remember where you was before harry cameYou will get embarrassed in the chumps league ,at least in the europa league you would have a realistic chance of winning it from the off.Yeah why not get Ramos back we can battle relegation again. harry has finished 4th 5th and 4th in the last three years and I don't see Jose or Pep beating our door down for the job
Harry could do better but there's few around who could do a better job and loads who couldn'tHalf of these people aren't even Spurs fans! The league was weak this year and this was our chance to win the title. Thanks Harry, but lets move on. And can the ARSEnal fans and Spammers stop posting rubbish?

Southampton are lining up a £7m
bid for Celtic's Charlie Mulgrew &
Gary Hooper(12)(30)Lies!Saints fan here - Its gonna take about £8m to get Hooper alone!Hooper not worth it - i saw the five he scored yesterday and i could have scored all of them...let him stay at the level he belongs - saints can do better now...Think hooper is foolishly set to stay in mickey mouse league.He will stay where he is because he is at a better clubHooper will stay at Celtic if he thinks he is already playing at his peak,ie against second rate opposition and then getting knocked out of the Champions League immediately.
If he trusts his ability and wants to test himself he will move to the Premiership. It's that simple, and this will be a continual problem for Celtic, with their ambitious quality players flocking south for the winter. Where geese go Hoopers will follow!Mickey mouse league maybe,but cfc still 1 of the biggest and greatest club on this planet.Have to laugh at small English teams , if Hooper does go to epl it will be for a team who will last more than a season , seems Southampton are quite happy with Big Jos at centre half probably worst player to play for Celtic in last decadeCeltic are a Championship standard club in my opinion! SPL is not that good.Never thought I would hear myself saying this, but I would be more disappointed to see Charlie Mulgrew leave than Gary Hooper. He has been superb this season. Has anyone pointed out to teams going into the prem that there are plenty of bargains to be had on the other side of Glasgow? Davis, Whittaker and 'shagger' MacGreggor will all be available for a song and would do a good job. Those scoffing at the quality of the SPL would do well to remember that Hooper's record was on a par with Jelavic, and Fletcher (Wolves) is one of the top strikers in the Premiership!Hooper isn't going to sign, we have more than enough strikers.Here we go again, Celtic supporters so inward looking that they think players will not look outside of Scotland.
Sorry guys, did I not read the other day that Lennon could have £5m to spend to bring in new players? Compare that to a club like Man. City who could easily pay £110m for one player (if he became available.) I think you will also find each of the 3 new clubs into the EPL will each spend between £10-£20m this summer, so any player with ambition north of the border will be tempted.
And it will only get worse with independence, because then your clubs have NO chance of joining the EPL!Hooper will not leave one of the biggest teams in europe obviouslyWell obviously Hooper would be reluctant to leave one of the biggest clubs in Europe-but Celtic only qualify in terms of support! In terms of ability to play the other biggest clubs in Europe you are woefully inadequate and the quality gap is growing wider. Any player who feels he has the ambition and the ability to back that is NOT going to be content to continue to win a league which is a joke within Europe.
If Hooper has any ambition to be an international, he will not fulfil that playing within the SPL.H ere we go again same as last transfer window,why would he go to southampton you will back where you belong championship,skint,some bigwigs doind a runner with the cash.It must be really blissful to be that ignorant.
Check out Saints financial backing before you make such remarks-you will find their financial backing is a great deal stronger than Celtic and they now have an income stream that the EPL generates.
I can quite understand supporters backing their own clubs but the number of people on here who do so without any knowledge outside of their own localities is absurd. Perhaps it will improve once the minimum alcohol price is in force north of the border.The only reason that different from the leagues is MONEY, blane and simple. why do you have big name players because like the ex:man u coupld spend 100mill. Celtic to smart bargining for how is that 25 mill striker for liverpool doing? compared to hooper? 50 goals in 2 season for hooper. do you really think players would chose between Celtic and any lower clubs in epl no they would always chose Celtic for it is a big club with great history and support. i do believe Celitc would be a mid table team in epl, i just hope one day we can prove that to show yous. we will keep our big players unless 10+mill because they are talent but some arrogrence from most people that because it is the spl players are only worth 2-3mill. and Celtic should have advanced from the hardest group in the europa league this season only for an own goal and a pen(never was one) that cost us in 2 games, for we were up against the top club at that time in seria a as well as the eventual winners atletico, are they micky mouse clubs? by no means do we say Celtic is better then everyone else but we would make it hard on your top clubs to win. cant wait for CL so maybe there we can change some of your minds and show the class of players we have and maybe yous can start showing more respect.50 goals in 2 seasons for Hooper-yes!

But what was the opposition??

There will be players who are happy to score a hatfull of goals against poor defenders (I saw the 5 he scored in his last match). Maybe Hooper is content with that but the point is the best, most ambitious players will not. There will be a number of EPL clubs looking at Hooper and Rhodes, all asking the question, can they do it at a higher level and how much are they worth? It depends on whether a club has the money to risk.

I think Saints are in a stronger position here to make that judgement because Adkins knows the player well, but we will not pay over the odds. It will come down to what the player wants, and as we have found out, if a player sees better prospects elsewhere and wants to leave there is no way a club can keep him. Equally, Saints only want players who will commit themselves 110% so if there is any doubt about that then we will be looking elsewhere.So your saying talent isnt talent until they play a big team/league. so him being 1 of only 3 players in history to get 5 goals and breaking a 40 year record since someone did it for Celtic means nothing? your right in what you sayabout players and if you see Hooper LOVES playing for CELTIC, where else to you get a fan support like ours in the world?no where, for all the great players say it is something every players should do once.
Hoopers ambition as well as many other is CL, why would any player want to play for a team that is always fighting relegation, money thats it. Hooper as well as all players are improving and winning at Celtic.
to score no matter what league you face the same number of players and since you saw his goals how about the one he scored when it was him against the keeper?that shows what he has and it dosent matter which league it is. do you not think that because Celtic is too good that we make others look bad, for our players are wanted by man u, liverpool, clubs in spain. look at our players izzigaurie(which he would be 25mil player in epl), kayal,hooper,forrest,mulgrew,wanyama, ledley,mathews all young and wanted by other clubs. i only hope when the time comes when Celtic beat some big teams all of you doubters would we deserve more respect. go back and look at some goals we scored and im sure you will like some.And at Celtic there is presure to win every games because of its high standards and history, but i guess presure is nothing when it is not the best league eh?

Watford FC very close to agreeing a £150,000 deal to sign Luton Town winger/Striker Robbie Willmott. Although signing him from their rivals, Watford officials feel he is settled in the area, ready to make the step up to the Championship and also believe they can acquire him for a relatively nominal fee. Other players officials are discussing making a move for are Joe Lewis from Peterborough (dependent on Kuszczak's decision to sign or not). James Coppinger - Doncaster, Earnshaw - Cardiff. Players expected to leave Vicarage Road this summer are Ross Jenkins, Rene Gilmartin (already left), Joe Garner and Mark Yeates.(9)(9)Would love to see Earnshaw at Watford!

Thanks.(21)(18)Here's some Man Utd news...they lost the title to Man City in added time :-)Glory supporterOwen is out of contract so will go for nothing. I don't think United would sign all of these players due to the size of transfer feesWhen was this said on ssn like?in ur dream maybe?Sorry, but of course man u could sign these players, who given the chance would turn down a move too man u one of the greatest teams in the world. Finances aren't a problem as the profit united make every year even on top of the debt is massive.United will get two of those, maybe, mostly because Athletic will not consider selling Martinez and Muniain in the same summer, especially if Llorente is plucked by Barca. Kagawa is gonna be about 15 mil, and the Glazers are probably gonna let out maybe 60, so they've certainly got some leeway. Anderson, though, is going nowhere. They don't have the luxury of turning out decent midfielders when they can barely scrape together two at a time with the injuries.

West Brom to ask for permission to speak to Paul Lambert about the managers job(22)(6)Why would lambert want to go to west brom they are no bigger than norwich and we beat them twice this seasonRubbishGoing to villa.West Brom are bigger than Norwich and we beat you at Carrow Road and finished above you in the table. That said it would be a sideways move for him so can't see it but who knows maybe he thinks West Brom have better resources?They can ask. I know what the answer will be.Yes it would be a sideways move, but we beat you twice at your place and you were only above us on goal averidgeRead it again. It said will ask to speak to him. It doesn't say he will go to them. Touchy canaries. One swallow and all that!You Norwich fans can dismiss it as much as you want but the simple truth is that, if approached, lambert can tell the board he wants to speak to the interested club. At that point it's over because he can't keep him in those circumstances. A club with better resources will come in for him it's inevitable. Whether that's West Brom or villa we'll seeWell villa or west brom havent got better resources at the moment .norwich are debt clearIt will be funny when he goes to Villa!Not a chance him going to Villa there awful ive seen pub teams play better than them on a sunday league west brom though are the same standard as Norwich so it will be tough decision he will have one more season at Norwich then we shall see what he decides to doWest Brom are also debt clear and have a solid footing,however i still think the Baggies need a premier experienced boss to kick on from Hodgson. Not McCliesh,McCarthy or Lambert.Of course West Brom have better resources, try checking out our balance sheet. The Norwich Chief Exec has gone on record stating that the resources available to Lambert won't be increased i.e. wages so can he take you to the next level? West Brom may not be a massive step forward but trust me it is a step forward in resource terms and squad wiseWest Brom would be a step up for Lambert, but considering the work he's done at Norwich and their excellent season in the Prem, I feel that bigger clubs than West Brom will come calling.

no one is signing coppinger he staying at doncaster cya.(3)(17)Doncaster will be mid table league 1 next season after their failed attempt to sign big name players on short contracts got them relegated, meaning a big over turn of players, he's a decent championship player so he's off and i feel for you having to support donny.Come on pompey get himMaybe but explain why he came out in the press and said he would love to play for Ipswich if he's not engineering a move away from the club?Watford are also interested in him but he does look like he will end up at the tractor boys

Cardiff City News:


Dato Tan Chien Ghee, Vincent Tan, Mehmet Dalman, Steve Borley, Alan Whiteley, Paul Guy and Michael Issac will meet later today to resolve the rebranding issue which has been casting a cloud over the club.

Vincent Tan is disappointed that he could not get his way, but he will agree to put half of the £100m promised into the club on the proviso that he can walk away in either January 2013 or May 2013.

That leaves £50m for next season for everything. Malky Mackay will be told that five players will have to leave in the next few weeks before the board will sanction any new signings. These players will be Heaton, Whittingham, Miller, Blake and Earnshaw. Sigurdsson will join but will be the only big money signing, as Mackay will have to scour Europe for cheap deals. Mackay is keen on a few Rangers players who will cancel their deals and move in the summer:

John Fleck, Ross Perry and Andrew Little will move from Ibrox to Cardiff, whilst Cardiff are interested in free agent David Hutton as a back up to David Marshall.

Expect Cardiff to only be a mid-table side next season. There might be a new buyer coming in by November, and it will be a British buyer if the deal goes ahead.(4)(5)So £50m for 2012-13? Not too bad as you say, but we will have to jettison the dead wood asap.

The players from Rangers would be good signings and we have to hope for damage limitation!

Interesting that we could be bought before the end of the year - wonder who this person is... just hope not another Hamamm/Ridsdale!What a load of rubbish, it's all crap, topped off with sigurdson signingThat 50m will soon go.

I fear for the future of our club if we cannot find a suitable buyer come Christmas.

I expect Malky will walk this week - can't blame him if he does.As if Sigurdsson would reject premier league interest to go to an average championship teamI'm assuming he means Sigurdasson, loads of people make this mistake, the striker who plays for lillestromHeard that Malky's going up to Villa Park to chat with Randy Lerner about taking on the Villa job.

Odds are that McLeish will not be there for much longer.Reading are favourites to sign Bjorn Bergmann Siggurdarson. They put in a bid of £1.5 million plus add ons but Lillestrom want £3.5 million up front. Talks have been suspended but it's early days. Likely that they will meet and the middle and he'll go for £2-2.5 million with add ons. Everton are also rumoured to be interested.Considering that you state VT AND TG will be at this meeting, i think you need to review your information! VT isnt even in the country, only TG is attending the meeting! the 5 players leaving are Keinan, Parkin, Heaton, Quinn and Taiwo.

So before spouting bull rumours, get the information correct you clown!Under FFP rules, investors can only invest £6m. So the £50m you are quoting is against league rules, and as a result a transfer embargo will be placed on your club for the following season.And then you woke up!Total fantasy land , the board meeting is tomorrow with TG and not VT (they have already held talks in Malaysia)

FFP are active already??Celtic fan here - Teams like Cardiff should have a buyer camped in the car park outside of Ibrox - there will be a fire sale shortly and there will be plenty of good, international experienced players up for grabs in addition to the young lads mentioned in the article. For all the SPL is seen as a laughing stock there are some players who could do a great job at that level.Whats the rebranding issue, dont Cardiff like the ' annual play off failure' image?

Not sure if you all remember the Keble Investments "failed" takeover of Charlton last year, but rumour has it that it didn't fail at all...

...Keble are the third party and are financing the operation behind the scenes. Keble investments are one of O2's key financiers, so watch this space...

...The stadium will be renamed the O2 Valley. and the roof is already being prepped for new rooftop advertising to the neighbouring visitors London City Airport.(10)(8)Cant find anything on Google can anyone give me some more info? I've the heard the o2 kit sponsership deal mentioned.DO you want to tell Trevor Hemmings this valuable information? im sure he would be awfully intriguedNo we want you to tell him.
