Afc wimbledon are allegedly interested in stuart fleetwood of luton town and are prepared to wrap him for jolley(who was wanted by villa last season) but is now wanted by luton, forest green and newport, who have had a bid turned down)



18 Dec 2012 16:31:53
Crystal Palace are preparing a 1.5m offer for Albert Adomah of Bristol City. Contrary to talk that they would bid if Zaha was to leave, news coming out of SE25 is that they want him to play alongside the newly capped England international.

No, I don't think so, the player of ours that you are after is Cole Skuse. Albert would cost more than 1.5M, trust me

Palace don't need either of them players and if we wanted to get them we could wait untill your relegated and then get them for cheaper than what your asking.



18 Dec 2012 16:06:00
Palace boss Ian Holloway is eyeing up Bristol City player Albert Adomah in January, who would be a lot cheaper than usual because of the debt Brizzle are in.

Bristol City in debt!? Where are you finding this rubbish!

They are looking at building a new stadium - since when is that a mark of financial troubles?

Sounds like CP WUM's trying to start something here.



18 Dec 2012 15:37:37
Second Posting! From within Brighton & Hove Albion. Ashley Barnes out of contract in the Summer is unhappy at losing place is likely to move in January whilst Brighton can get a fee. Valued at 400-500k Barnsley and Sheffield United are 2 of three teams that are monitoring position. If CMS goes to Norwich Brighton unlikely to sell.

Haven't seen the first posting but it is unlikely Brighton will sell Barnes. Brighton only have 2 other main strikers Makail-Smith and Hoskins and would want to sign 2 new forwards before selling any. According to a National paper today Brighton are interested in Austin (Burnley).



18 Dec 2012 15:19:38
leeds united to sign wes hoolahan and gary hooper. FACT. believe it or not those deals are happening. The new owners are going to go for it and try get promotion. Inside source. MOT.

Ye don't think Hoolahan is leaving, unless we wanna fork out around 3 million or more for him. Also why would Hooper leave he is playing champions league footy, who would leave that for a midtable championship team.

So false! Hooper is playing champions league he is also got interest from 3-4 premiership clubs. Why would he leave for Leeds united

Hoolahan literally just signed a new cotract on Saturday he's most certainly not moving anytime soon

Lol, wes signed a new improved contract at norwich on saturday !! so it aint gonna happen !

Must be true you said FACT!

Hooper is playing champions league football and wes signed a new contract with us on saturday. Just another leeds fan dreaming

No way is hooper signing for leeds best one all week lol.



18 Dec 2012 15:05:07
Leicester have agreed a deal to take Robbie Keane on loan in January for 6 weeks. They are also in talks to land Landon Donovan in a similar deal. The owners would love a massive name signing and did tempt David Beckham with a £80,000 per week offer but he feels he can still play top flight football. {Ed025's Note - if donovan does come to england...he will be joining everton mate..

Brilliant. better than when i watched john bishop a few weeks ago that was

Why stop at the likes of donovan and keane? just go all out and get messi and ronaldo. all the big names want to play for boring Nigel in the championship and not to mention live in Leicester

Keane has stated he is signing for nobody

Donovan wont be going to Everton either mate . {Ed025's Note - if he comes to england he will mate, he loves the club..



18 Dec 2012 14:50:29
Bristol City look resigned to losing Jon Stead in January. Leeds, Huddersfield and Blackpool are sniffing around the hitman with a fee of £750,000 enough to see him leave.

Huddersfield are not interested in Stead. They are interested in a striker who can score goals though.

750k? Where's me car keys, good player but right now we have other priorities and need to reduce the wage bill

750k, you are having a laugh, Bristol will do well to get another club to take him on a free, his wages are out of all proportion to his scoring and performance record. As for Huddersfield taking him, not a chance.

The only way he's a hitman is if he has another job on side, Awful player



18 Dec 2012 14:07:06
Reading are looking at purchasing Ronnie Stam from Wigan in a bid to improve their defence.

Heard this whispering around the club the last few days, Brian McDermott is rumoured to be looking at Stam for some Premier league experience. The potential fee is about £4m

He's not worth 4m.

Not even worth 2m



18 Dec 2012 13:50:53
Afc bournemouth midfielder joe partington is set to join league 2 side Plymouth on a month loan deal

Troy deeney supports aston villa so he will want to go there not sheffield wednesday or afcb either and we dont have enough cash to buy him

Partington is future prospect at afcb, presently will struggle for game time at bournemouth so month at plymouth would do no harm.



18 Dec 2012 13:38:51
middlesbrough under 18 striker Bradley Fewster is currently being looked at by 3 premier league clubs, fewster who is a england under 17 international has scored 3 goals in 5 games for his country and has impressed some big clubs

Hopefully boro will hold strong, these young players are our future



18 Dec 2012 14:48:38
Leeds Utd are looking to bring in Norwich striker Steve Morison on loan until the end of the season. As well as extending the loan of Thomas and making Tate permanent.

Morison doesn't do small clubs

Warnock is looking to sign a permanent striker for a fee not loans



18 Dec 2012 14:42:36
Leeds united are to make a move for ranger player David tempeltion now that they have the funds .

Do you know how much he is paid,dont think he will be going to leeds.

Do you know how much he is paid?

How much rangers pay him lol, in the fourth tier of Scottish football, really if leeds were interested he would come like a shot, in fact if Doncaster rovers were interested he would come like a shot, rangers are officially a joke. {Ed039's Note - The fee is officially undisclosed, but is thought to be circa 750k. Wages of around 7-8k per week)



18 Dec 2012 13:57:47
Korea media claims Stoke City plan to bid 8 million pounds for Korea international and Bolton's Lee Chung-yong.



18 Dec 2012 13:43:06
Crawley have agreed a deal with Bury for the transfer of winger David Worrall in January

This is old news, Crawley agreed the deal late November, everyone knows this already.



18 Dec 2012 13:39:26
Crawley Town are looking at a number of strikers to boost their squad in January. The Reds want to sign Will Hoskins on loan from neighbours Brighton and Bradford's Nakhi Wells.

No Chance of getting Nakhi Wells he is staying at Bradford.



18 Dec 2012 13:33:57
Out of favour striker Marvin Emnes is currently being looked at by swansea, swansea have been interested in the former netherlands under 21 since he came on loan, 3 million is the price being mentioned

He's not out of favour! 4.5mill + danny graham maybe you'd get somewer

18 Dec 2012 15:04:08
he's not out of favour though...

Danny 5mil plus you want 4.5mil for emnes, 9.5mil for a player untested in the prem

Good championship player we need better for the prem though

Happily take danny graham in a straight swap



18 Dec 2012 13:30:13
Scunthorpe source....strongly linked with aldershot towns Daniel Hylton, freebee in January



18 Dec 2012 13:27:01
Matt tubbs will join shef wed a loan with a perm deal in summer

That is not likely as we need him as cover at bournemouth, unless eddie howe feels he can not compete with other afcb strikers, first choice seems to be pitman and grabben. afraid the 800,000 spent on tubbs would need to be recouped



18 Dec 2012 13:05:16
oldham set to re-open talks with charlton to bring leon clarke to booundary park after matt derbyshire ruled out a return to the latics

You will have to offer around 500,000 but he will be quality for you

If we had 500,000 we wouldn't waste it on Clarke . We don't have that msort of money so won't happen, Dickov won;t say who he's interested in but he's already speaking to players.

Maybe 50,000 as he's not worth 500,000, what player are you watching???

Matt Derbyshire has not said he doesn't want to come back, he has said if a permanent deal can't be agreed (very unlikely anyway) then he will come back on loan. And Leon Clarke would be a decent addition to our squad



18 Dec 2012 13:02:42
West Brom have offered Millwall £1,000,000 for Liam Trotter plus Chris Wood.

WBA can get lost!

That values Trotter at around 2.75 million. Any deal might depend on exactly who Millwall might be able to sign to replace Trotter. Such a deal might make sense for WBA but might not be quite tempting enough for Millwall.

If true i would take that

I'm from NZ where Chris Wood was born and grew up and I know him and his family very well. He is going to millwall for 1mil no add ons like trotter

Wood's staying at West Brom until the end of the season as cover for Odemwingie who's going to the African Cup of Nations.



18 Dec 2012 11:28:41
Cheltenham boss Mark Yates has been handed a six figure transfer budget in January with Johnny Mulins (Rotherham) and Chris Robertson (PNE) wo names at the top of his list as he aims to find a long term successor for Steve Elliott.

Why would Chris Robinson drop down to Cheltenham when there are higher league /bigger clubs would like to sign him.



18 Dec 2012 08:17:54
Heard that Watford Defender Adam Thompson is heading to Yeovil Town on loan in January



18 Dec 2012 13:01:23
Millwall to turn their attention to out of favour Reading striker Simon Church on a £400k deal.

Haha take him! I know we dont want him at htfc! garbage would be a compliment for that lad. didnt even make the bench at weekend!

Good luck with that what I ve seen of him in a,Town shirt he's very poor.

Hes a good player who has lost his way but puffa can turn that around, be a good signing if the wood deal dont happen



18 Dec 2012 12:08:04
Crystal Palace are tracking Australian striker Josh Kennedy



18 Dec 2012 11:48:58
Zaha (crystal Palace) has asked chairman Steve Parish to leave in January as he feels held back by the coaching team brought in by Holloway

*Yawn*.. Gets boring after awhile, seeing fans from other clubs making up "rumours" about our players.. Laughable really, we've come out and said he's not going anywhere in January. While he's got 4 and a half years to run, your speculation isn't going to amount to anything..

Because every player honours their contracts!



18 Dec 2012 11:37:22
Calvin Zola to Aldershot

I heard he was going to crawley town.

Burton would be stupid to sell, they might as well wave goodbye to any chances of making the play-offs if he leaves.



18 Dec 2012 10:18:25
Crystal Palace are tracking Elfsborg forward Lars Nilsson. Palace seem him as the perfect player to back-up Glenn Murray.

Rumours are also rife that Palace are keen on Jon Taylor of Shrewsbury Town.



18 Dec 2012 10:03:40
Millwall want chris wood but wba are being very unreasonable. I dont think they understand thatC Chris wood wants to join us. COYL

All about money! They will sell to the highest bidder.

Can see Leicester, Forest and Huddersfield all going for him as well.

To be honest it will boil down to who offers the most in both what WBA want for him and in wages.

I seriously think Millwall are out of the race to get him!

Apparently WBA want 1,750,000 for Wood. It is not unreasonable for WBA to try and receive as much as they can when selling however much the player might want to join a club. After all Manchester United didn't exactly drop their price for Ronaldo when he joined Real Madrid.

It is a shame as Chris has settled in really well with us,but as our chairman JB has already stated we have our price on chris & will not be paying over it! & fair play to him for that!WBA have turned this into a stupid auction!

The issue with Chris Wood is that WBA has a shortage of strikers. They will wait until January before they decide whether they will accept any bid for the player. CW has a flat in London and has indicated that he would like to stay with Millwall.



18 Dec 2012 09:59:53
Millwall want to keep Adam Smith till the end of the season. I dont think Spurs would let us have him because he a a decent player.



18 Dec 2012 09:42:50
jake livermore spoted at turf moor this morning, maybe a loan deal happening ?? cause im sure we cant afford a player like that ?



18 Dec 2012 07:59:31
Brighton are set to sign kenwyn jones from stock city in January

He's one of Neil warnocks targets at Leeds and also palace.



18 Dec 2012 02:51:51
moustapha salifou joins portsmouth in january

More likely to be Mustapha whipround {Ed039's Note - As a Rangers fan I feel Pompeys pain, but this did make me giggle)



18 Dec 2012 01:57:21
If West Brom reject Millwall's £1m bid for Chris Wood, Millwall will instead use the money to re-sign Norwich's Steve Morison.

Forest had a 1.5m bid turned down on deadline day. What makes you think you'll now get him for 1m??
Also forest are still interested and would have no problem adding on an extra 500k if need be. I am presuming you wouldn't be able to do the same

I would drive him there myself if we got 1-1.5million for Morrison!

The question of anything above the 1m would depend on any outstanding payments on the transfer from Millwall to Norwich

1 million for Morrison. He reached double figures in the premiership last season or was it 9 he scored. You're looking at more than 3.5 million + to sign him, which I think you'd agree if out of your price range

Following the sell on clause to Stevenage I don’t think we got much more 1m for him in the first place. He is now on higher wages at Norwich so I think that this is non starter.

10m for Morison

Reason: Wales International and PL prolific goalscorer.

Norwich have Holt Injured, not how long for. Why would they sell Morison until they have alternative strikers signed.

Norwich still owe Millwall 700k for the sale so with Millwall offering 1m that equals to a 1.7m bid.



18 Dec 2012 00:53:37
Paul Paton of Partick Thistle will agree a 2 1/2 year contract to sign for Carlisle United in January. Interest is growing in the 25 year old midfielder with Hartlepool, Motherwell & Hibernian also monitoring the situation.

Carlisle are struggling to pay there current squad, Unlike all the league one clubs we dont have a multi millionare in charge anymore
