Celtic will sign three more players 1 likley to be Maxi Lopez and there could be a shock return for a former heroe

  All Baggies fans wish Carl Hunt all the best on his more to Ireland.

  Rino Gattuso's gorgeous wife was spotted looking around houses in Upper Helensburgh yesterday, sparking fresh debate that Gattuso, who has never hidden his love of Glasgow Rangers, will return to Ibrox.

His close relationship with the Milan chairman could aid Rangers in acquiring this world class midfielder at a reduced fee, with £7 million pounds being muted.

The deal is entirely relian upon Rangers successful negotiation of the second leg of their Champions League Qualifier.

  So who is it going to be then now that Jol has been given the vote of confidence. An outstanding manager by all accounts that may fall under the Premier League axe if results do not come bouncing Tottenham way, quickly. Klinsmann as well as Ramos of Sevilla have been mention by everyone but a new name has floated to the surface. One with one of the best records in the game, Fabio Capello. Will the Tottenham board go for the panic buy of Curtis Davies or a good centre half or make room on the hot seat?

  After a recent game between Newcastle and Juve two members of the Newcastle's senior staff were seen talking indepth to Pavel Nedved. Nedved has recently stated that he is unsure of his future and with the addition of fellow Czech, Rozenhal, to the Newcastle squad this may pave the way for a creative addition to the squad. It was thought that Allardyce was to move for Mauro German Camoranesi but he has now signed a new deal. A new deal for Pavel Nedved has been tabled by Juve but the player is sad to be not very amused by it.

  Just in from reliable source. They will sign Curtis Davis by Friday close for 9 M. My source is very close to former Tottenham great Gary "the Doc" Doherty. Jol's job is not in any danger. Tottenham are also in talks with young Irish defender Richie Garry. Not one for this season though but getting glowing reports at Shelbourne League of Ireland team in Dublin.

  Chelsea will not make any more transfers before the window closes. Instead they have opted to buy the Champions League trophy and Premier League Title outright. Mourinho reckons it is quicker and cheaper going this route.

  Leicester City will complete the signings of samaras on a season long loan from Manchester City and Eddie Lewis from Leeds in a swap deal for Elvis Hammond. also expect them to complete the signings of Wayne Routledge and Danny Murphy.


  Ok, the Kluivert situation has hit a snag, his agent has been holding out for more cash.

if he dosnt sign before Saturdays game, expect him to sign on Monday.

Big J

  Pennant to Middlesbrough for £8 million.

Yakubu to Everton for £12 million.

  After Sevilla insisted that Chelsea has bidded way below their asking price for Daniel Alves, this has alerted Rafa. But he would not want to spend $20 million pounds on a wing back. Other possibility is getting Philip Lahm. Heinze's move maybe hijacked by Lyon which would suit SAF's desire better. Thus Rafa's looking at Emanuelson from Ajax who impressed him in pre–season and champs league qualifier. Can play left back or left mid.

  Sheff United news

i have it on good authority that Portsmouth have made a large offer for Stephen Quinn which has been rejected. Norwich have made a bid for Leigh bromby which is under negotiation and Derby are definatly going to test United with a bid for jon stead

all true.

  Wolves could complete a double swoop on Leicester with porter and Fryatt being there targets. The value of this deal will be £2.1 million

  Hammond, douglas, Hughes and Maybury are all set to complete moves away from Leicester this week and also Leeds will sign hellings on loan and jimmy Neilsen on a free transfer as Martin Allen does not believe they are good enough for the championship.

  Newcastle could sign Juan Sebastian Veron, Belletti and Ian Harte.

Luton could sign Peruvian Manco Miguel and Bradley Wright Phillips.

  Rafa no longer wants Alves fact, he wants players at the club who will wear the shirt with pride not how much money they pay him. cicinho looks like a no goer, but do not be surprised to see a bid for micah Richards, I am not saying he will leav City but a bid to test Manchester City resolve.

the team is almost complete, qauresma for right mid and Pennant will leave next Summer, only a right back would then be needed as said before expect a try for Richards of Manchester City, two years and the Premier League will be at Anfield.

  With the failed attempt to sign mido, the rumours around the Stadium of Light are that Keane is not going to rest until he gets his big 15/20 goal a season forward to play with Chopra. the rumours are that he is going to go back in for Afonso Alves of Heerenveen for 8/9 million or GiamPaulo Pazzini From Fiorentina for around £10 million. also, unfortunately it seems ours and Julio Arca's hopes of returning to Sunderland are gone after Middlesbrough will not accept anything less than £5.5 million.


Andy, FTM

  Gavin mahon set to join West Bromwich for a massive fee of around 290 grand it will happen you no

  Arsenal latest

Gilberto Silva to join Valencia in part exchange for Vicente, Arsenal will add £7 million also.

Curtis Davies will join the Gunners on Monday for £6.5 million rising to £10 million with appearances, England caps etc.

Also Song to leave to Bolton for £2 million

I am lenny.

  Manuel Fernandes set to sign in the following days for £ £6 million. This fee will be given to Benfica and an additinal payment given to his third party. He will take the number 10 shirt. Also, Moyesy is still looking for a forward, with only AJ and Anichebe fit, despite their recent performances. Expect another move for Yakubu, or a foreign forward, Huntelaar or Esquerro. If unsuccessful, when fit Cahill will be played as a forward. A good season looks on the cards and hopefully a long European run, thanks to Mikel Arteta. Sad to say it but if his form continues, surely a bigger club will snap him up Blue Boy

  Julio is not happy at the smoggies and now Roy has made a bid for him he is desperate to return to his spiritual home and be part of the Sunderland revolution. It'll happen sooner rather than later.
