Altintop to join Bolton Wanderers
  Porto fwd Hulk is all set to sign for Sevilla, not sure of fee but I've heard it will be over £15 mil. Cissoko is all set for AC Milan, Bruno Alves will probably leave to the EPL and Fiorentina want Lucho Gonzalez to replace arsenal bound Melo. Porto will do what they do best and buy unknown players and turned them into very vluable assets.

Wolves will raid Newcastle with Nolan Butt and Duff signing with in the next few weeks– i got this from a source in side the molineux
other rumours include:
Zubar– Marseille to be completed soon
Milijas– will get a work permit
Jason roberts–blackburn
Lita– on a free as cover
fox + gunnarrsonn– coventry
Delph and beckford– leeds

G. Johnson £10m plus Crouch transfer fee wiped out making it a £17m transfer fee
D. Silva £12m plus Riera and Mikel San Jose loan
J. Martinez £14m

Dossena £7m Juventus
Voronin £4m Wolfsburg
Degen £2m Hoffenheim
Itandje £1m Lens
  Firstly Liverpool have been brought out by DIC and will be made public the day after the refinancing agreement is due. Hicks and Gillette will be walking away wealthy men after bleeding Liverpool dry of all their dignity. DIC have already given Rafa money for transfers why else would they fork out 17–19mil for a RB they do not need! If Liverpool have no money surely Rafa would concentrate on another attacker just in case god forbid Torres injured himself next season!! Expect Villa and Etoo to come in. Villa will cost 45mil but done over installments. Etoo will be 15mil as contract near end. Expect Micah Richards for 5mil replacing Hyypia. Rafa given Riera another season for LW but will go for a RW expect English Walcott/Lennon or a renewed interest in Wright–Phillips!! You heard it here 1st

  Which eejit is making up the stuff about Colin Nish and Billy Mehmet going to Ibrox? RUBBISH. Real Rumours from a real source: Expect Celtic to open the biscuit tin to give their new 3rd choice 'Championship Manager' hope of finishing second next season – INS: Fletcher from Hibs OR Fortune £4million (ish) for each, That spaniard and left–back from West Brom, James McCarthy from Hamilton and usual bids for whoever Rangers are after, possibly that centre half from Portsmouth – that's all. OUT: Naka (espanyol), Wee Aiden (sunderland), the Holy Cokehead (a few german clubs 'sniffing' about), McManlove (newcastle), Vineger of Hasselhoff (back to Holland), Bobo 'loyalty–bonus' Balde (wherever pays well), Hartley (Ipswich), Killen (championship) and Scott Brown will head south if Celtic get a bid for £7million. THIS IS TOTALLY TRUE – AND I DON"T EVEN LIKE CELTIC, SO THERE!
  To the guy who said ''I work in the West Ham club shop and have just been asked to put all our letter Q's, the ones used for putting names on shirts, in a big envelope and send them to Cardiff City FC. Also, we have just placed an order for lots of J's and Z's.''

I believe you in the fact that Quashie will be leaving and Jiminez coming to UP! But why would WHU send all their Qs to CCFC when they use different lettering on championship shirts??? Why can't you just state your rumour rather than make us work out 'riddles'!
  Update from Ashton Gate;

Scott Sinclair has signed from Chelsea (1m+)and Lee Martin has signed from Man.Utd today (Wednesday)after being in Bristol since Monday (1.5m).

Barnsley have now accepted an amended bid for Anderson De Silva said to be under 1m and will be in Bristol later this week to complete the deal.

Leandro from Debrecen (Hungary) is expected in Bristol for talks soon. The left fullback/wingback is expected to cost 250k.

Gary Johnson is also after Paul Gallager (Blackburn).
  Bruce has 50 mil + to use this summer. He wants to replace cisse, some of his targets are Bent, Zigic, Tuncay, Darren Hall, Tamudo.
Obviously he will only sign 1 or 2 of them as they have the superstar Kenwyne Jones.
Titus Bramble will be signed as Dunne isn't good enough.
Bentley, Huddlestone, Hienze, Saviola, Beckham and Piatti are also targets for Bruce
  Burnley will be signing at least 8 new players before the start of their Premier League opener on August 15th.

The following are:
Ross Mccormack
Jason Scotland
Michael Dawson
Chris Gunter
Rhys Williams
Andrew Driver
Abs Jacobsen
Teemu Taino

  Just heard shocking news from my mate that Kevin Doyle is poised to sign for Liverpool! I knew their purse strings were tight but I thought they could do better than that! You never know, he might turn out to be an inspired signing!
Firstly let me just set a few RIDICULOUS rumours straight. .
EDUARDO to Spurs – are you joking? Eduardo has the potential if he keeps fit to be one of the world's best, why eould he want to go to a mid–table team that aren't even in Europe?
FABREGAS to Man Utd. – this one is even worse, can any Man U fan tell me why Fabregas would want to go to Man Utd? He is a loyal guy and would only leave to go to his childhood heroes, Barcelona, and frankly I wouldn't blame him if he did
Arsenal INS:
K–J Huntelaar (14mil) – Real Madrid
Eden Hazard (6mil) – Lille (by the way to all Man U fans saying you are getting him, he has already signed a secret pre–contact agreement with Arsenal after Wenger flew to Pas–de–Calais to thrash out terms)
B Matuidi/Y Toure (6mil/13mil) – St Etienne/Barcelona
T Vermaelen (10mil) – Ajax
E Dzeko (15mil) – Wolfsburg
E Adebayor (22mil) – AC Milan
E Eboue (6mil) – Atletico Madrid
J Wilshere (loan) – Newcastle
W Gallas (5mil) – PSG
P Senderos (8mil) – Bayern Munich
Votre Francais. .
  Due to a fall out beetween sam allardyce and Jason Roberts Blackburn are looking to offload the stricker and Bristol City and Swansea are battling it to sign the stricker. Bristol City are leading the chase because Roberts has friends down Bristol.

Fulham have looked to won the bidding war for Marvin Elliot for 2mill and zamora looking likely to head the other way in a part exchange.
  Sheffield Wednesday Rumours

Wednesday look on course to beat the 16.5 k in season ticket sales, Brian Laws looks set to add to Darren Purse and Tommy Miller with three more additions,

Victor Anichebe – season loan, a couple of other sides are now sniffing, hopefully this one will get pushed through.

Darren Potter – 3 year deal, problems with the fee, but Wednesday are confident this one can be completed on the 1st July.

Laws is looking at a number of possible signings, with the wage budget stretching to bring in one more quality addition, this all depends on Anichebe, if he signs then Laws will go for a CM, if Anichebe doesn't sign then the last signing could be a Striker, here are the names being banded about:

Sammy Clingan – Norwich.
Lee Williamson – Watford.
Seyi Olafinjana – Stoke.

Gregorz Rasiak – Southampton.(yes i know)
Andy Keogh/Sam Vokes – Wolves.(loan)
Billy Sharpe – Pigs, i hope not.
  To the person that said that there friend saw David Noble being shown around the arsenal training ground this could be true as david used to be part of the arsenal res 1999–2003 i very much doubt he will be signed by wenger.
  In 2 weeks time everton will have confirmed the signings of:
joe ledley
stephane m'bia
kuder kaiter
also a fee for kyle naughton is being agreed with sheffield united, belived to be 5mil
joao moutinho will not be signing ! the money is simply not there
instead everton will tempt spurs with a 10mil bid for duo jamie ohara and tom huddleston
ross turnbul will be brought in as back up for tim howard
finally fiorentina striker pazzini will be moyes' first choice striker and an 11mil bid has already been made
tuncay sanli will be brought in for 6mil if this bid fails
  I broke the di santo to blackburn deal to you al over 2months ago. . new bit of information, ancellotti has been advised that players from the younger age group of the first team, sinclair, sahar and stoch are not going to be good enough to challenge for a place in the team over the season, and that they should be sold. With this in mind wolves have made moves for sinclair £5mil, sahar will go to osasuna in spain £3mil and stoch will sign for sheffield wednesday on loan with a view to a 3mil move in january
  To the idiot who was saying all of ManU's outs and then said they would get money for the sale of Tevez, they won't. His agent will. If Tevez goes then Fergie will bid fo Huntelaar or Villa, but only one because he has seen what Rooney can do upfront after Rooney's recent displays for England. He will also buy Silva, Valencia and Valdes (EVDS is too old).
Aresnal to wrap up deal of Vermaelen soon and possibly sell Adebayor, if they do they will bid for a similar style of striker.
Chelsea's deal for Zirkov (sorry about spelling) seems to be off,so they may drop that ang go for another left winger.
Liverpool are in financial trouble (although they are in less debt than the other top four) because they need to pay their debts off and they are losing money each year, Chelsea's is getting payed off through Abramovich, ManU and Arsenal are gaining big profits every year, mostly through ticket sales. So Liverpool seem to have signed Johnson, but won't buy any other 'star' players unless they sell some.
City will buy but as their chairman or whoever it was stated, they won't overpay because the asian bloke who owns them didnt get that rich buy overpaying for everything in the market.
If any of these rumours don't come true, don't blame me, they are just informed guesses. I am not the friend of a football players cousin and won't claim to be, anyone who does without proof (although its hard to prove) is wasting their time because pretty much no–one believes you.
This is a rumour site, use it for that.

  ASTON VILLA – true rumours

Randy Lerner to announce that work is set to begin on the new 60,000 capacity Villa Stadium, and put forward £40 mil for M.O'Neill to prepare for a SERIOUS challenge on the top 4 next season. Villa to become the next best thing. Although, not all these players will be signed Huntelaar is the priority signing, and Lerner is willing to allow the Dutchman to become Villa's highest paid player of all time with wages of around £75,000 p/w.

Target Ins:



KJ–Huntelaar – 17 mil
  Stoke City News

Tony Pulis has been busy scouting the World for players with his strict DNA requirements. His efforts have borne fruit and the following signings are expected at the Britannia Stadium this summer:–

1. Portuguese midfielder Hugo Viana from Valencia – 4 million euros

2. Malaga defensive midfielder Xavi Torres – swap deal with David Kitson and Richard Cresswell making the trip down to Spain

3. Goalkeeper Francesco Toldo from Inter Milan – 2.75 million euros

4. Benfica striker Freddy Adu in a transfer record shattering 8.5 million euro deal

Closer to home, Pulis is keen to bring Michael Owen and Alan Smith in from Newcastle on pay as you play deals.

Players going out will include Ibrahima Sonko (Chelsea – £2 million), Glenn Whelan (Cardiff – £500,000) and Steve Simonsen (Birmingham – £1.5 million).
  I have it on good authority that the 3rd "Big Club" in for Wigan's Winger Valencia is Bayern Munchen they are reportedly scared that if Man Utd and Real Madrid find out they could force a sale through for their French Winger Ribery. . .
  Robinho will go to Barcelona and it looks like CR7 move to Madrid has hit a snag due to player's image rights
  Plenty of big moves this summer:

Man U – Valencia, Ribery, Drenthe, A.Sanchez
Chelsea – Pato, Pirlo,Zhirkov
Arsenal – Vermaelen, Dabo, Veloso, Matuidi, Huntelaar
Liverpool – G. Johnson, Bojan, Valdes
Man City – Tevez, Barry (done), Lescott
Barca – Villa, Capdevilla, Fabregas, Reina
Madrid – Clichy, Maicon, Ronaldo(done), Kaka(done), Ibrahimovic
Inter – Deco, Carvalho, Hulk
Juve – Diego (done), Eboue, Babel, Henry
Milan – Cissokho(done), Senderos, Adebayor, Robben, Sneijder

I know alot of these have been reported before but hearing more and more about them.
  Please please please will people stop linking Ross Turnbull to Chelsea. In simple terms he is awful and will not cut the grade as Chec’s understudy. As I predicted the other day Johnson will NOT be coming to Chelsea. I am a Chelsea fan and it was obvious from the outset he wouldn’t come as he would just play second fiddle. Also can we stop going on about clubs finances Liverpool fans…. we all know that the top four are in debt we don’t have to brag who is in the least debt. We have 0% loans from Roman so I guess we are in the best position.

Deco & Charvallo will go to inter. However, we will not be getting Ibra , Inter milian will pay about £14 million for both.
Demebele – Will be coming to Chelsea Fact!
Alex – Still going to Man City, Ivanovich can replace him easily.
Adam Johnson is still on the cards, although Liverpool would like to add him to their squad.
Joe Cole– Will not leave for West Ham because your club is not stable enough. Maybe in a few years but not now.
Ashley Young is still on, he will be brought after the U21 championship and will cost more as he will be amazing through the tournament. Roman has said before he would like a strong English contingent in the team and he will make sure we get some good young players. Mancine will stay and he will not go for the nominal fees that have been put on here. If anything he will go on loan to wolves.

Just like to say just cause they say I want to go/stay to (insert club name) in the papers don’t mean they will go. Example Ronaldo, I will stay honest………need I say more. Villa will be staying in spain!!

Deluded Spurs fans you finished 9th in the premier league, why on earth would Ashley Young come to you. Just cause he maybe a fan of a club doesn’t mean he will come he will stay at Villa or move to one of the big four. Also Robben or Huntleer will not go to Spurs as you’re not good enough. You’re not in the champion’s league. Don’t get me wrong Harry will make some good buys and you will finish in the top six, but stop kidding yourself . Newcastle have got more chance of being promoted than spurs getting robben.

Rant over
  Stoke City are looking to sign two players within a month with Ghanian international Isaac Vorsah top of the list. Another name mentioned for Stoke is Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara. Kamara is looking to finally fit into a squad and is said to be delighted at the prospect of playing with Senegal internationals Abdoulaye Faye and Ibrahima Sonko.

Aston Villa will sign Bentley for 7 mil and Richards for 5 mil. Expect a lb such as Bale and DM for Barry. Sunderland will sign Zaki.
  To the muppet who posted this

Tottenham are working to secure the signings of Lorik Cana from Marseille and Daniel Pranjic from Herenveen. They may also look to take Mido from Boro on a season long loan if they cannot secure the signing of Van nistelrooy, Toni or Carew.
1. Daniel Pranjic has already signed for Bayern
2. Cana would never go to a minor little team like spurs.
3. Van nistelrooy maybe, Carew or Toni not a chance.

Also a few days back a friendly belgian posted some stuff about belgian players moving to the prem. Seems he forgot about a belgian called Kevin Mirallas and his speculated move to everton.

  ###########AVFC – from dfiance's pov

I'm not here to state "facts" like some others, only some common sense and some wishes.

I seriously doubt Ashley Young will leave Villa this summer. After losing Gareth Barry AND Martin Laursen MON will loath to lose ash aswell.
–Young is on a long term contract of around £50,000 a week which is well enough
–He's best mates with Gabby Agbonlahor who won't be going anywhere either
–In january MON joked that if Wayne Bridge is worth £12M, Ashley Young is worth £75M. I know that doesn't mean 75m is his asking price, but that does hint that some deluded fans on here saying young will leave for 18m to tottenham "this season will be our season" hotspur are likely to be incorrect.
–Young is our best player, MON compared him to messi and clearly believes he is truly brilliant. Swapping our best player for Jenas and Huddlestone? Redknapp is off his crocker if he thinks that'll actually come through. Don't get me wrong Jenas is good, but young is head and shoulders above them both, and Huddlestone has a serious problem with running and stuff.

David Bentley is a good player, he was quality for Blackburn, he did a bit of a robbie keane but you don't become a poor player over night. If what hes saying in the press about talks with villa for 7m is true, i believe its a good signing, as good as it would of been before we got milner last summer. im not saying hes definately coming, just id welcome him in a villa shirt. Anyone who thinks we don't need him is silly, poor james milner worked his socks off last season and really deserved a rest, we need more than 1 quality winger for each side. bentley can also play through the centre, something that maximises his versitility and use to MON

Today we got linked with R.Drenthe. Would be a fantastic signing and i thoroughly hope it happens. I have my doubts though. .

Other players id welcome to VP this summer include:
Brede Hangeland (would need to put in a massive bid and theres no guarentee he'd want to join)
Thomas Vermaelen (looks like hes at arsenal, a shame)
Micah Richards (unlikely imo)
Steven Defour (a possibility imo)
Michael Owen (only on a pay as you play contract and wages no more than 40,000 a week)

Thanks for reading

There aint much goin on at the moment in Newcastle with everything up in the air. But I live in the same village as Alan Shearer and half the overpaid wasters of the team, and there are strong rumours in the local pub about who Shearer wants to sign, IF he takes over.
The ones everyone is sure he will go for are:

Jermaine Beckford
Jonny Hewson
Fabien Delph
Daniel Fox
Kris Commons
Joe Ledley
Danny Simpson
He is said to be looking to loan a couple of experienced prem players although I havent heard names.
Iv also heard people mention, and in local papers too about moves for Frazier Campbell, Bradley Orr Andrew Driver and Per Ciljan Skjelbred, although I've no idea how much true are in these names!

  Derby are keen on former Forest hot–shot Grant Holt, but may be put off by his wage demands. They are in negotioations and Clough hopes to come to an agreement in the next few days.

  I have it on good word that an irish based Consortium are in the process of buying over newcaslte there is about 5 money men with one guy who is very well know in football circles in south dublin who will be the contact and the brains behind the take over bid.

also have heard a word that the following players will be leaving celtic –
Mcginn on loan to ipswitch or west brom
Caddis go on loan to champo team
Nakamura – siera a italy

It is widely known that mogga likes to work with a close bunch of lads and get a set team to play a passing game with pace, don't expect many players in but expect the likes of
Ferry,McCourt ,Mizuno,McGeady, wilson.

most likely starting line up for celtic will be

Hinkle Caldwell McMannus O'Dea

Mcgeady, Crosas, Brown , Mizuno

Scot Mcdonnald

Players coming in will prob be in the january transfare window as tony likes to build a team not buy one, but look out for robinson from west brom, and fletcher from hibs. if he will buy that's all he will buy in the summer.

Glen Johnson deal is preety much done– Liverpool will pay £10.5 million for him and will tell portsmouth to forget about the £7 million they owe Liverpool from the Crouch Transfer.

Javier Saviola is also on his way to Anfield with a £7.5 million deal in place, expect him to sign by 14th July.

Finally. . expect Benitez to make a surprise move to bring Little Luis Garcia bacl to Anfield on a season long loan, with a view to buy for £4 million.

  Liverpool face Athletico Madrid in a preseason friendly on the 8th of August, could this mean the signing of aa Athletico Madrid Player? (Aguero,Forlan,Simao?)

LFC Transfer News Now.

Glen Johnson should be signed but it won't be for the 18.5m quoted. The fee will be closer to 12–15m (excluding Crouch fee), Pompey owe use around 5m therefore it shouldn't cost too much only around 8–10m and to raise those funds we will sell Doessena and will keep Arbeloa unless an offer of 10–15m is offered.

David Silva looks unlikely to join Real Madrid and may opt to move to Liverpool and that will cost around 20m

Lastly i'm not exactly what funds we have but we may sign someone from Athletico.
  This is not fiction, pure fact only.

Cesc Fabregas is Uniteds new number 7. This deal has been brewing for months, and Wenger has struggled to keep his captains mind on the job, since Fergie put in a preliminary bid. Cesc was willing to stay at the Gunners, but now Wenger has decided its time to move on so has Cesc. Wenger will be joining Man City within the next two weeks.

Absolutly gutter gunner.
  Liverpool News
The Glen Johnson deal is not complete, but Johnson has told Rafa he wants to play for Liverpool and the deal will go through in the next couple of weeks, this is because Liverpool like to announce multiple signings at once and to get all the press conferences done at one time.

The other deal will be released soon, it has been kept quiet as the player is very much in demand.

The player is non other than David Villa, as you are aware bids have been made for other clubs but have broken down at some point. This is because Rafa has a verbal agreement with Villa himself that Liverpool are interested and are trying to negotiate a deal with Valencia.

Valencia are playing hardball due to their financial state, this has prompted Villa himself to say the only team in the Premiership he wants to play for is Liverpool, in an attempt to reduce the competition and ultimately a price war. Liverpool are NOT SKINT but Rafa needs to keep cost as low as possible.

The fee is likely to be around £35m with players offered as bait, Arbeloa and Babel.

If this deal goes through Liverpool will then be forced to sell to obtain their final target. David Silva. However, Alonso and Masch will stay. Players out will be Dossena (£6m), Arbeloa (£8m), Babel (£10m), Voronin (£3.5m), Leto (£2m), Degen (£1m), El Zahr (£1.5m).

Total INS: £63m. (Johnson £10m [£7m off set by Crouch], Villa £35m, Silva £18m).

Total OUTS: £31m

£32m spent.

  Michael Owen is set to be given a chance with Fulham. Owen is impressed with their ambition and is relishing the chance of european football again. He will sign on a basic contract of £20,000 per week but with huge bonuses for playing time and goals. This will be confirmed on July 1st. Newcastle are looking to take advantage and get Bobby Zamora on loan from Fulham.
  Wigan are close to signing Middlesborough rightback Matthew Bates and West Brom Leftback Paul Robinson. Dean Ashton looks set to join on loan for the season too.
  I am working on someone's house who shall remain anonymous for obvious reasons, the rumour around the site is none other than Roque Santa Cruz will join from Blackburn, I don’t know the transfer fee, I don’t actually believe Rafa goes round telling taxi drivers who he is wanting to buy and how much he is going to pay.
  David Wheater and David Bently will both sign for Villa on July 1st. These are the only 1st team signings MO'N is panning this summer. Replacements will be signed if anyone else is sold though.
  Morning folks.

Couple of rumours going round Liverpool late last night.

1) Glen Johnson is on his way (that was on BBC and Liverpool Echo) but Jermaine Pennant is part of the deal (which neither media source said)
2) Enquiries have been made about Joe Cole, as Ancelotti has new ideas and wants some fresh faces.
3)Babel, Dossena & Degen have all been 'made available' for transfer.
4)If and only if D.I.C. come in will we look at Silva/Villa/Joaquin.
5)Rafa has put in a cheeky bid for Valencia
Until next time. . . . . . . . . . .
