  Arsenal news

arsenal are thinking about, or have already submitted an offer for fulhams hangeland. Wenger is willing to offer up to 10 mil plus senderos to sign someone who will had hight to the arsenal defence.With Adebayor on his way to city arsenal has at least 25 mil to use in the transfer market. 10 mil is to be set aside for hangeland, 3–4mil for matudi, or 7–8 mil for a possible emirates return for flamini as well as a season long loan of Huntelaar with a sign on fee of 14 mil if arsenal choose to sign him permanently. Huntelaar is a significant possibilty as it is rumoured he has discussed this move with Van persie, and also his coach from Ajax, Denis Bergkamp. If the huntelaar move doesn't materialise a deal for Chamakh of 7 mil plus silvestre is possible.

I am friends with a couple of high profile agents, and over a few pints they loosened up and told me what's going to happen in the transfer market.

Alan Smith > Sunderland
Peter Crouch > Fulham
David Bentley > Blackburn
Gabriel Heinze > Everton
Obafemi Martins > Bolton
Eiudur Gudjohnson > Wolves
Dean Ashton > Wigan
Rafael Van Der Vaart > West Ham
Eljero Elia > Burnley
Brede Hangeland > Stoke
Dario Srna > Hull
Yuri Zhirkov > Birmingham
Bruno Alves > Spurs
Tuncay > Chelsea
Miguel Veloso > Villa
Joao Moutinho > Man City
Stephane Mbia > Arsenal
Ian Ormondroyd > Portsmouth (coaching role)

If Liverpool get a good bid for Dossena they will bid for Lahm. Otherwise Rafa will not alter his main squad, expect Voronin to play a lot next season.

Alex Ferguson will wait for the transfer market to come back down to earth, and go for Stijn Schaars,
Marko Arnautovic and Jan Laargo in January.

You heard it here first,
–Son Of Eggman

  With LFC looking to accept that alonso wants to leave, enquiries have been made to Roma about Aquilani. Expect a bid in the region of 16mil euros if alonso goes

To the person who said Arsenal to sign "Danielli De Rossi from Roma. De Rossi was not at the Roma dinner on Thursday evening and because Roma are in London playing West Ham"

1. On Thursday night Roma were in Italy playing Blackburn Rovers in a friendly.
2.There was no Roma dinner on Thursday night.
3.Roma were in Italy not London
4. Roma are not playing West Ham in a friendly this season.

At least so some basic homework before you make a load of rubbish up!
  Southampton to sign rickey lambert for 1.2 million eventually rising to 1.5million.
  Big news at Sunderland. Steve Bruce has taken a good look at the squad and decided on who he wants to ship out. Contact has been made with Wigan to offer Dean Whitehead, Andy Reid and Nyron Nosworthy in exchange for Lee Cattermole (who Bruce is desperate to bring into Sunderland as captain), Wigan say there is a deal to be done but want Kenwynne Jones.

Bruce doesn't really rate Jones (which is why he is persuing Crouch) and is considering swapping him for Cattermole but this would not be popular with Sunderland fans.

Another player on his way is Danny Simpson who is going to join for £2.5 million. Bruce is also trying to tie up a loan deal for Darren Gibson for the season.
  Chelsea are the only club willing to meet the 17 million asking price for Sunderland's Kenwyne Jones, Arsenal, Blackburn and Spurs all fancy the striker but Chelsea have the funds and are prepared to use Andriy Shevchenko as bait to lure the T&T hitman to Stamford Bridge.
  I was behind the scenes at the Darlington v Sunderland friendly. Kenwynne Jones was not playing because of injury but because he is lined up for a move to Tottenham. Peter Crouch had a medical earlier that day and if he signs Jones will move with Darren Bent coming the other way.
  Liverpool are definitely NOT concluded in the transfer market.

Alonso will make a 30mil move to Real Madrid.
Arbeloa will make a 5mil move to Madrid
Albert Riera will possibly join Valencia for 10mil

Coming in will be either Wesley Sneijder for 16mil or Marek Hamsik for 20mil.

David Silva for 20mil is also a very likely buy.

There will also be a few young talents. Liverpool will have around another 15mil to spend after these buys & sales.
  Newcastle United are closing in on Burton Albion duo Marc Goodfellow & Shaun Harrad.

Newcastle United rookie keeper Fraser Forster will join rivals Sunderland as understudy to Craig Gordon.
Benji back, 1 up front away from home
Alan Smith on board– Paul Hart

This is rubbish because i was his best mate at school and he was a devoted Arsenal fan!
  Andy Bishop will not sign for Millwall for 2 reasons:
1 Millwall have 5/6 strikers and do not need anymore.
2 We will not pay 300k for him when we have better strikers.
Zak whitbread will not leave for Leeds so hush he wants to move to a bigger team and Leeds are no bigger than Millwall also they can not afford him as he is worth upto a million.
Real rumours In:
Paul Ifill Free
Sam Sodge Free (wants to stay with his family in London were he is from)
Mkandawire From Leyton Orient around 200k
Puncheon ??? possibly 150k
Jem Karacan (supports Millwall and has previoudly played for us and claimed he would love to stay) 300k
a goalie and another midfielder
Whitbread 750k–1m interested teams rumoured to be Blackburn (where his dad is chief scout)aswell as a host of championship clubs.
PS also Leeds apparently at a cut price lol OK :¬/
  Aston Villa

Upson £10m next week
Distan £2.5m next week
D Bent £12–14m next week


Zat Knoght £3m Bolton
Reo Coker £5m Everton

  CPFC Rumours
Firstly read between the lines with news comming out of Selhurst. Moses to Wigan, Clyne to Sunderland, the rumours are comming from Palace not the afformentioned clubs. The reason for this is that the holding company who own the rights to Selhurst Park has entered administration and Jordan is desperate to raise the funds to buy the ground back from the administrators for around £10m. The quickest way is to sell on some promising youngsters at inflated prices by starting a bidding war knowing Arsenal are keen on Moses and Liverpool on Clyne. Only signings comming in are free or on loan all the money raised will be put into securing the ground and the future of the club.
  Rangers will only sign 2 players once any deadwood is removed

you heard it here first
  John terry has had his talks with gary cook on tues 15th at prestbury golf club where they played a round . . .FACT. .
  Spurs have made enquiries about Matty Upson although zola does not want to lose him it is supposedly a great deal icluding cash plus players watch this space. . .
  I have complete trust in this source, I have been noticed that the players targeted are:

Toulalan or Inler or Mituidi(Ist 2nd choce respectively etc)

Huntelaar or demba ba or gouffran

and the exciting capture of dentiniho (who is better than douglas costa)
  Arsenal to sign Bassong from Newcastle.
  Stoke transfers

whitehead (sunderland) almost done for abou 5mil
maybe N'Daw (nantes) also to slot into the midfield with glenn

could do with another striker or 2 maybe Benjani (man city) or Zigic (valencia) fingers crossed benj tho dindane would be good too

talk of another CB maybe and hopefuly a RB too so griff can get on his bike

Ledley would be nice but lots of competition so lts see, culd d with decent cover for lawrence on the right to for if hs dog merks him again

olifnejana is of to france, creswell griff and tongue out too i think sensibly.

anyways just my opinions
come on stoke!
  Dennis Wise is set to join Notts County as Director of Football as Munto look to reorganise the set up at Meadow Lane. He will be announced at a news conference on Tuesday with his main objective to support Ian McParland and attract quality players to the club. Leaked by a source at the NEP
  MASSIVE NEWS FROM ANFEILD. david silva is almost certain to join once the alonso deal is finalised. barcalonas capture of the lazy swede in exchange for eto'o hleb and 34 million is daylight robbery, although is good news as it rules an attempt to lure mascherano. INS: SILVA JOHNSON KOLLON MAN
  Newcastle are in serious financial trouble – weekly wages are not being matched by income and season ticket sales are a disaster – the grin reaper awaits – there is no billionaire benefactor – fire sales from now on – shame they don't have any class players for big north eastern clubs to plunder!
  MAN CITY NEWS. . . . .

Lescott will join City and will ask for a move once the offer is above 20 Mill then a deal can be done. Test the Bookies and see if you can get good odds on him stopping. . . . chance of the move 90%

John Terry view his expressions wearing the new shirt on you tube HE'S NOT HAPPY. . chance of the move 90% Bookies won't take a big bet on a move to city
  To the person who said this:

"Newcastle players on their way out

Fabricio Coloccini – £2mill – Estudiantes
Josι Enrique Sαnchez – £3mill – Espanyol
Kevin Nolan – £1mill – Bolton
Joey Barton – Birmingham – Loan
Obafemi Martins – £5mill – Arsenal
Damien Duff – £3mill – Blackburn
Steve Harper – £1mill – Liverpool
Ryan Taylor – £3mill– Wigan
Alan Smith – £2mill – Everton
Jonas Gutierrez – £3mill – Valencia
Xisco – £2mill – Athletico Marid
Geremi – £1mill – Nancy
Habib Beye – £1mill – Nancy
Nicky Butt – £500K – Birmingham
Shola Ameobi – £500K – Ipswich
Steven Taylor – £5mill – Man City

Total out – £33million"

There is an embargo on transfers to and from Newcastle till a takeover, so those players won't be going anywhere for a while, all according to local press. And I've also heard that the takeover is quite a way off so any transfers might not be for a few weeks yet
  Why would Celtic sell their top player, Scott Brown, for £3million to Sunderland. He's still got 3 years on his contract. If Celtic do sell him they'll be able to demand around 7–10 million from a ew Epl sides. His favoured destination was spurs who are willing to pay 9.2 million. Mowbray coming to the club changed Browns mind.

Anyway only a few players to come in now at Celtic. Another striker a Left back and also James McCarthy. Celtic will pay 2 million for him and transfer Mark Brown to Hamilton and two players on loan.
  Right this is who moyes will sign naughton because hibberts getting on a bit joe ledley because we need an out & out right winger lorik Cana we need a holding mid to let Rodwell delvop Steven defour because he will bolster our squad and is a very gd player and last a unknown centre back that will do well in the Europa cup and as cover.
  I can tell you that the J Terry transfer saga will run right upto the last day of the window, City are not giving up, and from what i undestand Terry would like to talk to city.
  3 more players will be moving to Liverpool this summer:

Marek Hamsik (19mil rising to 22)
Matias de Federico (7mil rising to 10)
David Silva (19mil)

Leaving will be:

Xabi Alonso (30mil)
Albert Riera (9mil)
Alvaro Arbeloa (5mil)

Dossena will stay. Benitez still believes he can become a good left back at the club and consistent injury problems to Aurelio are a concern.

Spearing/Plessis, Kelly/San–Jose & Darby will become valuable squad players next year.
  Norwich –– Expect another poor season ahead for us. Gunny has hardly any cash to play with, The sudden flow of trialists coming in is due to the fact he knows how poor we are and watta t w a t hes gonna make of himself . Our new number 1 is ridiculously over rated (check out his record). Weve paid 500k for a swansea midfielder who hasnt barely kicked a ball for three years. Gunny was yet another wrong decision, should never have been given the job (we would still be in the championship). Too Derby fans Croft will be a flop, Dont get me wrong i love the boy, He's a club man an will always give it his all but that's where his qualities stop. He's highly over–rated, A winger 9 times outa 10 should be able to beat a full back with skill not with luck now and again and they should be able to cross a ball and score there fair share of goals, crofty, lets face it, can't do these, he was our best player last year but it really werent hard to be that was it ??. Top lad but just won't cut it in promo push
  My uncle's friend works as a Brazilian translator in Manchester. He is traveling over to Brazil this weekend with Manchester City officials to talk to Gremio about signing Douglas Costa.

To the Person that said . . . . .David Beckham to Manchester City after the end of MLS season. . .

David Beckham WANTS to join City but City have enough cover in this area no chance on the move. . keep the circus in America Please
  Rangers News :
Rangers won't be making any major signings this season apart from Hutton on loan, so there's no point bringing up the usual suspects of Tonel and Healy,Gattuso etc. Walter has a squad capable of winning the treble and increased playing time for Danny Wilson, Aaron and Fleck coupled with the return of new skipper Thomson will be like having new signings. Bougherra and Davis are not for sale.To all the Celtic fans who seem to thing the gers are going into admin . . Keep Dreaming, and let's hope Mowbray keeps spending over the odds on guys like Fortune, it will backfire on you when Dinamo Moscow (who are a quality side) knock you out of Europe.

Rangers wage Clearance:
Adam,Mcculloch,Beasley and Gow will be gone by the end of the Emirates Cup.
Walter also sees this tournament as an opportunity for the likes of Stevie Lennon to prove their worth.
  Liverpool will finalise Alonso's departure by next week for around 32mil. They were offered players such as Sneijder, Gago, Robben, Huntelaar, Drenthe & M.Diarra but Benitez doesn't want any of these players.

Liverpool will complete a swap deal with Valencia soon after the Alonso deal for David Silva. Albert Riera + 10mil will be going the other way.
Adam Hamill will be drifted into the squad as well.

To replace Alonso, Benitez has targetted Marek Hamsik of Napoli. Liverpool will start by offering around 16mil but it is expected that they will pay 21mil for the versatile playmaker.

After the training camp in Switzerland, Benitez will decide whether Pacheco, Nemeth, Spearting, Kelly, San–Jose, Darby and a few others will be kept in the squad or loaned out.
  Rafa has received two offers from Real Madrid for Alonso, one being 32m and the other 20m plus Sneijder. Rafa doesn't rate Sneijder so he will take the 32m offer today. Alonso is due to return to Liverpool from Spain tomorrow but Rafa has called Xabi and told him to have a medical at Real Madrid. The deal will be finalised for 32m plus a special clause that does not allow Madrid to sign David Silva during the next five years.

However, as soon as the Alonso deal is complete, Rafa will make Silva his main objective and will bid 22m. Valencia's asking price is at 25m but will accpet the deal. Silva has stated in the past that Liverpool are the only club he will leave Spain for. He will be presented to the media next weekend at the latest.

Rafa's other targets are Lee Cattermole and Alberto Aquilani. Cattermole was about to sign for Sunderland but he put the move on hold after he heard about Liverpool's interest. Rafa rates him highly and is going to place an 8.5m bid for him. If Catternmole signs then Lucas will be off as Aquilani wants to play Champions League football. Aquilani will sign for 17.5m before the season starts.

Rafa may make one more move for a left back as Dossena has been ommitted from the squad and Aurelio is injured. Joan Capdevila and Gareth Bale are both being mentioned as possible targets and they will both cost around 8m
  Back again after correctly predicting Gunter, Anderson, Camp etc. . Can today tell you that my sources are telling me that BD will sign Claude Davies who has just had his contract cancelled by Derby.No coincidence that more activity follows BD's calls to the board, McKenna, the polish lad and Fox will all sign this weekend.PSR. .
  Heard that hulse is leaving derby for boro for reported £3.5m now that the downing saga has been concluded
and notts county have made a cheeky bid for kris commons now theyre mega rich a paltry £2m
  Alonso to Real, deal to be completed this weekend £32m or £22m plus sneider.

INS: Silva for 20m deal done by wednesday

Plus midfielder to replace Alonso, Martinez/Aqualani names mentioned. All LFC transfer activity to be concluded by end of next week.

Complete rubbish as West Ham are in Austria for pre season, the only Italian team playing at Upton Park are Napoli. . .

West Ham to get Macini on load next few days, Gudjohnson for around £4m and Neill to sign a new deal.
  David Beckham to Manchester City after the end of MLS season.
  You've got to love those cuddly Villa fans. Desperately they try to hang onto to the belief that Ash Young isn't leaving and that he and MON are bosom buddies ("honest they are, MON said so on the official site") The truth is completely different to this wishful thinking. Both Everton and Tottingham have made bids for the want–away midfielder, and rumours gather pace that United and City are in for him. If the latter two are, and evidence submitted for my attention confirms this as most likely to be truth, I expect Young to have his head turned by either money (City) or prestige (United). So sadly Everton will miss out I fear. My prediction is he'll do the right thing, and move onto United.

In other news, Everton are returning to Liege with an offer of £15m for Defour. This matches the fee paid for Fellaini, and is the highest Everton will go. I expect Liege to accept this, as once they're knocked out of the CL, which will happen sooner rather than later, Defour is expected to engineer a transfer anyway. By that time, Everton will have been elsewhere, and the fee will no doubt drop.

  To guy who said "Vidic hasnt visited Asia with United is that Real Madrid and Man United have agreed a deal", are you mental?? Fergie wouldn't sell his bets player, then sell his best defender (best in the world) especially not for £10m, Ramos and Sneijder. Ramos is still a bit dodgy and is a right back (Rafael springs to mind). Nothing wrong with Sneijder, but that deal is worth about £30m and Fergie would accept that for the best defender in the world, no–one would. Vidic is INJURED that's why he limped off in the last game he played for Serbia and missed the game after that.
Anyway, MUFC to sign Young and a few midfielders in the same mould as Keane, because since he left, we haven't had that midfield battler (Fletcher isn't up to standard). But we also need a few CM's who will battle but are very good at keeping the ball, now that we have lost our main source of pace on the wing, expect someone like Hamsik, Kuzmanovic, Dzagoev (recommended, hes the next big thing in Russia) or Javi Martinez. All very good passers on the ball, young which is what Fergie wants and have bags of talent.
  Nottingham Forest look set to land Claude Davis from Derby County on a free transfer.

Billy Davies, frustrated at missing out on Shaun Barker and now set to miss out on Matt Mills is looking to the man he brought to Derby for £3 million in 2007.

Claude Davis isn't wanted at Pride Park and are willing to let him leave for free, but he apparently still wants to high wage from Forest and Billy is ready to gamble on him.
  Why does everyone keeping going on about Ashley Young. Why would he want to go to Tottenham who are not even in Europe this season, and who he turned down to join Aston Villa 2 years ago. As stated by the manager yesterday NO bids have come in and even if they did he is NOT for sale. It's that simple.

Aston Villa will complete the signings of Campbell and Dustin over the weekend with Knight being sold for 3m.

Villa have refused to pay the 15m wanted by Tottenham for
Bentley, Tottenham have over priced all their players and as it's obvious they have no money to spend until players have been sold expect clubs to leave it until late in the window before they make any bids, in order to get them cheaper.

Everton will not accept less than 25m for Lescott, which Man City will finally match.

Everton will complete the signings of the 2 Kyles from Sheff Utd.

Alonso will sign for Real Madrid for 30m Euros

Mascherano will sign for Barcalona as his Wife hates England and has moved back to Argentina until a move is complete

Liverpool will then sign David Silva
  Tony Capaldi to return to Home Park after being surplus to requirements at Cardiff. Argyle will need Left Back Cover with Paterson heading for Aberdeen.
  "And to the people who are saying that ashley young is moving anywhere else but spurs is bullsting because he supported spurs as a boy and how do i know because we grew up together"

Of course you did sunshine , that's why in a recent Q&A session in a Villa magazine he says he's a lifelong gooner . Have Spuds got 30mil to spend on one player ? Mon has ruled out any form of part ex . Joker .

Expect Chelsea in January .
  To the deluded Everton 'trainee' who said he saw "ashley young pull up in his 60,000 BMW and begin to walk into finch farm" – first if you gave out this info they'd sack you so don't know wat you're training to be. Second if it was Young then he was only asking directions to Old Trafford – he's unfortunately gonna sign for Utd.
Onto some City info. Things are going slow because of the turmoil taking place in the background of the large transfers. Terry is torn – he wants to come to City but I don't think its going to happen. The alternative is Hleb. Lescott will sign as will Eto'o – the real reason for the Ade delay. After this there will be one more signing – another defender – then the clearout will start.
  To the guy who said that arsenal will sign huntelaar and m diara from r madrid, i have also heard this rumour so hopefully there is some truth in it fee will be in the region of £21m. gunners can also expect eden hazard to arrive for around £6m and richards to arrive for somewhere in the region of £8m. departures will be minimal with only ade and eboue looking like likely departures. as usual there will be a few of the youngsters heading out on loan but not too many as aw will blood them in the carling cup.

  I work with Ashley Youngs sister at the passport office in London. Shes an admin officer there. She said that her brother has 6 clubs after him and that he would move up north as soon as possible because he doesn't get on with ONeil. She wouldn't say what clubs but I reckon its the same as keep being mentioned here but obviously if he moves up north he won't be going to a London club.
  Can anyone give any stats on what percentage of rumours on this page go through in the end. I lmao
everyday reading this site, each an every comment contridicting one another.Someone will post a comment in the morning and b4 u get to read it the so called target of a so called club has signed 4 a totally differant club.Vertually every post is'nt rumour it's
a crazy dreamer or man city fan puting his fifa team on here.Dont get me wrong its compulsive reading but
but not for the accuracy but the pure comedy value.I am an everton fan an im tellin ya now were skint,expect no big names(id love to proved wrong) expect more of the same magic from sir david moyes.if u listen to blue Bill and i do moyes has a max of 15mill that's MAX and with NO ONE goin out exept the dead weight this could be another fustrating transfer window 4 the goodison faithfull.We all love bill for what he has done for us since he took over but as the man him self says its a billioniers game these days and he just isn't one, but no matter who comes in this transfer window u can be safe in the knowledge that under moyes and with less that half the budget of the teams around us we have consistantly been the best team outside the top 4 and the ONLY team to break into it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COYB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Old Firm Facts

Right am on this site quite a bit checkin up the info but to be honest theres alot a people realy wide of the mark about things but am happy to clear alot up for all these idiots. . . . . .

First thing i would like to point out to all the celtic fans givin it the whole rangers are goin into administration same with some rangers fans aswell yous are all very wide of the mark people we might be in a bit of debt granted but mr murray is fed up bailin our glorious club out of bad situations he wants the club to beable to do that its self and a don't blame him hes the heart and soul of our club believe it or not now tell me how a club that owns the rights to its own stadium go into administration ? arsenal have more chance of going into administration than us.

Second point a would like to make is walter smith does have cash to spend but like the man himself said (saf) why go out and pay inflated prices for players, Walter will do what he always does and that's make great bargain signings a mean look at the talent hes brought to the club since he rejoined Cuellar,Davis,Mendes,Alexander,Big Boogie,Weir,Miller,Aaron,Lafferty These were all amazing signings for the club.

On a personal note am in two minds about mogga being the celtic manager yes hes an ok manager he done well with hibs and he done ok gettin wba into the premiership but after the money he spent you would have put money on them to stay up but nope they went down so that's somthing to think about.

Ok now onto the rumours av heard from various places but its consistantly the same things am hearin,

Rangers. .

Outs. .
Ferguson – Birmingham get him off the wage bill.
Adam – A Few Championship Clubs Interested.
Hemdani – Released.
Daily – Realeased.
McCulloch – Free To Good Home, Get Him Off The Wage Bill.
Beasley – Possible Move To Newcastle Or Germany.
McGregor – A few teams downsouth interested in him but his off field behaviour a stumbling block hes another one murray wants off the wage bill.

Ins. .
Tonel – 1.4mil Rising to 1.7mil.
Mehmet – 350k.
McArthur – 650k Rising to 800k.
Lovengrands – Returning On A Free.
Gattuso – Returning In January, Wants To Finish His Career Under The Man Who Gave Him It.

Now these players might not leave and some won't come in cause these are just rumours av heard from here there and everywhere so take it as that.

  I am hearing the following about LFC

Rafa will not buy striker cover (like Aguero, although he is a possible next season). He is going to use Babel/Pacheco/Nemeth. He will move for a striker in Jan if this doesn't work out. Xabi is virtually gone. It will appear to be amicable so as not to ruin the fans feelings for him, or the squads pre–season (32mill, of which 27mill will be up front)Ins will be Javi Martinez/Douglas Costa and David Silva or Juan Mata this will conclude LFC business till Jan at the earliest! Dossena is still going with Johnson and Insua and Carragher used as LB cover Johnson/Derby and Degen RB cover. Voronin will make cameo's up front before being sold in January to give rafa more funds. Babel will go in Jan if he doesn't make a significant improvement.

Clubs going plc in 80s making it a business, Sky feeding loadsa cash to the new businesses, the FA doing the breakaway Premiership and keeping alls Skys cash (and starving the lower clubs), Bosman for giving the players power and finally UEFA for expanding the CL and letting loads of teams in and not just the league winners. 4 of the 5 created greedy rich business based clubs, the other greedy rich players.
My Rumours – Man City and Real are the only teams with cash to spend – City the only ones with the funds to do it. This year and next in this credit crunch they will but the talent to go top 4 and stay there. This will include Eto'o, Terry or Hleb, Lescott and one RB this season.
The teams that slips out of the top 4 will be in real trouble– especially if they cannot get straight back in. Expect a Leeds Utd situation if this happens. Pandoras box has been opened. .
