Wayne Routledge almost signed a contract with Leicester City today, though due to his Twitter post, it is now clear that following the renewed offer from Nottingham Forest, he is considering his options.

Still, the East Midlands best current club with the best history beats Leicester by a long shot. And I know there are better options available to him (Probably) but it allows me to have the opportunity at a dig at Leicester, who face it, have signed anyone who's walked into IKEA, Giltbrook over the last four weeks.(4)(18)

Rumour is that Iwelumo has a tuff decision to make on whether to drive to Watford himself, pay for a driver or get a lift off one of the 15,000 Clarets who would drive the useless lump there for free.

The fact Watfor fan think Iwelumo is a good signing shows they are massive relegation candidates. This is a player so bad he has 2 years left on his contract but yet Burnley are letting him go on a free for no fee just to get him off the wag bill. A target man that can't jump or hold the ball up, good luck Watford.(11)(5)

Sunderland pull out of race for Wigan Athletic winger Charles N Zogbia
by Geraldine Lagard. Published Mon 18 Jul 2011 15:00, Last updated: 2011-07-18 Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has ruled himself out of the chase for Wigan Athletic winger Charles N'Zogbia.

The Frenchman, who is currently the subject of a £10 million bid from Aston Villa, is understood to be a long-term target for the Black Cats' manager who signed him during his time at the Latics helm.

However, he has reached the same conclusion as his Newcastle United counterpart, Alan Pardew, that the finances do not stack up to make the deal happen.

Bruce said: "[N'Zogbia] is not going to happen. It has become a bit too rich for us." source click lancashire(14)(8)

Stockport County bid £50,000 for former loanee and Fleetwood striker George Donnelly.(4)(7)


18 Jul 2011 18:05:39
To the person stating Southampton will have one of the lowest wage budgets in The Championship - You are truly deluded, the wage bill from last season totalled £12m if you hadn't seen the reports. The highest payed Southampton players are as follows;

Lallana: £20,000 a week plus goal bonuses
Lambert: £16,000 a week plus goal bonuses
Cork: £16, 500 a week
Fonte: £13, 500 a week plus clean sheet bonus

Any new signings will be "quality" ones not ones to add to the "quantity" of the squad; Adkins has already stated this.

The reason both Saints and Billy Sharp pulled out of his transfer from Doncaster to Saints was a dispute over wages because he wanted £30,000 a week to move down South and there was no way Saints were gonna pay him £10,000 a week more than their highest earner when he's not worth that.(12)(8)


18 Jul 2011 18:04:26

The striker we have chosen to pursue is Marvin Sordell at Watford, a fee in the region of 1.75m rising to 2.5m has been agreed and he will travel to Staplewood in the next few days for talks.


HAHAHAHAHAH This is hilarious...Little old Southampton think they can get the most promising young English centre Forward in The Championship for 1.75 million? Watford would laugh you off. Try 5.75 million rising to 10 million and you might have half a chance. Watford don't need the money and don't need to sell so if Southampton think they can get massive over inflated prices for their young players and then offer other clubs peanuts then they can think again.(5)(14)


18 Jul 2011 17:37:14
"Also former loanee Kevin Lisbie is now a free agent after his contract at Ipswich expired, and will have to prove his fitness to earn a permanent deal with the Lions"

Bollocks because we wern't prepared to pay the wages he wanted. We offered to buy lisbie before we even got him on loan but the only reason we ended up getting him on loan was because ipswich agreed to pay a majority of his wages. Plus his new contract would be a pay per play deal and he didn't want that.(7)(3)


18 Jul 2011 17:36:44

I happen to know this a mere smokescreen as Grayson finishes off a shock move for Ade Akinfenwa.(5)(11)


18 Jul 2011 16:59:47
Have a close contact with a member of staff at Southampton, we will make 2 signings this week.

It won't be Maynard as people are saying. We only ever enquired (weeks ago) and were shocked at the price they wanted.

The Sharp deal is dead. He wanted a high wage and relocation costs covered for by the club, that was a non-mover as soon as he requested it.

The striker we have chosen to pursue is Marvin Sordell at Watford, a fee in the region of 1.75m rising to 2.5m has been agreed and he will travel to Staplewood in the next few days for talks.

Another target, contrary to beliefs is not a CB - it's another winger. Keith Treacy from PNE is being sought after and we're hoping Mills impresses during his trial so he can be used as a sweeter in any deal.

That should be our business, but we are monitoring the European leagues and a surprise may come out towards the end of the window.(12)(10)

To the person who said...

Burnley have offered £150,000 for Dag & Red startlet Femi Ilesanmi. The 20 year old has been wanted by Eddie Howe since he started his managerial career at Bournemouth and he could be an ideal replacement for Clarke Carlisle, who has gone to Preston. He can also feature at left back.

Saints fans have this fixation they are going to be a top 6 side this season and with their current players they will struggle to hid mid table. I find it beyond belief the arrogance of saints fans yes they have a nice ground yes that are financially secure but from what i've heard from someone at the club they are going to be one of the lowest payers in the league as Cortese wont pay big wages and my understanding is 12k a week is maximum so i think you need to get real on your teams expectations. Only one signing so far for saints.

Everton have all but signed Nicholas Bendtner from Arsenal on a season long loan. The only snag is the percentage of his wages we can afford with Arsenal holding out for near 100% but Everton unable to do so.

If they fail, they will be once again looking to former loanee Jo from Man City and Carlton Cole from West Ham. The Cole deal will be a permanent transfer which will see Sylvain Distin moving the other way as Everton cannot afford the fee.

In order to raise funds, we are also looking to offload Mikel Arteta, Maruane Fellaini and Jack Rodwell ASAP so we have time to get other targets in. If we can get £40m for them, we would get about £25m to spend on young players (yes I know JR is young but he's a saleable assett) and would be able to keep hold of Howard and Cahill.

Targets include Lee Catermole, Joey Barton, David Bentley, Valon Behrami and Nikola Zigic.

What is it with Brighton, Leicester and Saints that makes people so regulalrly predict so many people signing for them every day? What is it that keeps the endless optimisim despite so little happening? It can't be just the seaside air as the last time I went to see Leicester I didn't spend much time on the beach
Now a few other thoughts.
1. Everyone is forgetting we are still in a recession, and football is no different generally - so most clubs will not do big business this summer (just like in the winter break).
2. Only those who have rich Owners have money to burn, or Man Utd. Most others will not spend as much as they get in for players sold.
3. The signings that are being made are mainly too much money for too little clear talent - I give you Henderson and Jones, both of who may blossom but both of who cost far too much for what they have to offer.
4. Sunderland seem to be busy spending a lot of money on a lot of not such great talent. The classic thing for a club that will end up the season in the lower half of the premiership.
5. Arsenal will not change habits because it's what Arsene truly believes in - so Cahill will go to Chelsea and Saints will want too much for Chamberlain. I've said it once and I'll say it again Arsene will not sign mega names for mega fees - he never has and he never will.
For all those that moan about that do not forget that you knew nothing about Henry, Vieira, Fabregas, Petit, Flamini, Anelka, Adebayor, Vermailen, Hleb, Sagna and so many others before Arsene bought them - so keep an open mind for now.(7)(14)

Robbie Simpson will move down the road to Bradford City along with (this is talk though) Nathan Clarke as they have no real future under Lee Clark at Huddersfield Town. Peter Jackson is very keen to recruit Nathan Clarke but he is believed to be in talks with an east Lancashire club - Bury or Rochdale?
Tom Clarke could be going on loan (with a view to a permanent move to Carlisle) Oldham are also said to be keen on a similar type deal.
Finally Damion Johnson will not be signing for Terriers but may join Bristol City on a years loan to end of his Plymouth contract.(2)(5)

Adam Le Fondre to Burnley for 400,000

ALso expect Keith Treacy to sign for Burnley later this week after Burnley bid 1M which is too much for PNE to turn down


Unlikely with the with the wage bill at burnley being so high they will have to sell before buying and heard a rumour jay rodriguez is linked with a move to bolton.(2)(13)


18 Jul 2011 09:53:17
18 Jul 2011 08:18:09
Brighton will sign following 5 players by Friday. Owen Hargreaves, Robbie Keane (loan), Ben Watson, Adam Le Fondre, Joel Lynch.

What are you on ?, we're not in for any of these. Squad is in Portgual so unlikely to see anyone new coming in this week unless it's Loic Damour who trialled for us last Friday.(3)(23)

This week will see movements on the transfers of mulumbu and odemwingie transfer. Owen hargreaves to be signed as a risky mulumbu replacement and leaving west brom in desperate search for a striker. Kenny miller, emile heskey, and leon best all very strongly linked.

I work close to but not for the club and know all this as very strong news coming out of the hawthorns


You know absolutely nothing and are quite clearly a Wolves fan when you use the words 'risky' and 'desperate' in a veiled attempt to put the club down. Both Mulumbu and Odemwingie are discussing new contracts and the club have already turned down an enquiry for Mulumbu so there's no way they will be selling wither of them.(5)(9)

Just seen adam le fondre outside prenton park

very good signing for rovers if it goes through its hard to know these days(7)(13)


18 Jul 2011 09:16:03
As Damien Commolli has already stated, Liverpool's transfer activity has almost finished, with this he means the major transfers in to the club... The only two new "major" signings will be Ally Cissokho from Lyon for £8.5m AND Scott Dann from Birmingham for £10m. This will complete the first team squad for the forthcoming season.

A few loan deals will be completed for our youngsters, beginning with Bruna to Blackpool and Pacheco to Coventry.

Those surplus to requirements and WILL leave if the right offer comes in and they agree to a move, some want to stay and fight for their place, but Liverpool want to reduce the wage bill.
Joe Cole (£3m)
David N'Gog (£5.5m)
Raul Mereiles (£11m)
Emiliano Insua (£4m)
Christian Poulson (£2.5m)
Milan Jovanovic (FREE).

This will bring in about £26m, which will only be spent in this window if N'Gog leaves as it leaves us short up front... If this is the case, expect a cheeky bid for Jermaine Defoe of Spurs (£11m). If N'Gog doesn't leave the money will be saved to strengthen in January if things are not going to well.

I'm not going to try and justify this by saying "FACT", but this really is the plan (although things can always change)..(16)(19)


18 Jul 2011 09:04:45
Sheffield Wednesday to sign Paul Scholes and Steven Quinn, also they are going to offer new 5 year deals to James O'Connor and Mark Reynolds.

Sheffield United have bid for Southend striker Barry Corr, Yeovil Town to take Southend's want away young striker Matt Paterson. Bristol Rovers Chris Lines to Crystal Palace.


Interesting, Barry Corr is out injured at the moment, he probably peaked last season so very much doubt Sheff U will take him. Paterson is on pre-season tour of USA with Oxford who are keen on him as are Gillingham. Palace seem to be linked with everyone at the moment, but I believe you have hit the nail on the head here, expect him to Lines to join them i the next day or two.(16)(6)


18 Jul 2011 08:18:09

Leicester City have offered £4m for Yakubu. He has been left out of Everton's tour of USA and will sign early this week. Also on Sven's radar is Joe Cole. He wants the Liverpool midfielder permanently, though the more likely thing to happen would be a season long loan with Leicester paying £60k of his wages. Cole would join permanently then Leicester get promotoed. (Reliable source)(13)(19)

18 Jul 2011 03:12:03
Stefan Maierhofer is set to be offered to local teams on a season long loan deal, if wolves fail to find a buyer for the Austrian

Heard a rumour he could be sent to Walsall with Wolves paying 50% of his wages, as Maierhofer still believes he can cut it in England and is willing to even drop down to league one to prove this(6)(8)

Bristol City may look at Shane O'Connor of Ipswich FC as competition for Jamie McAllister at left back. With only one year left on his contract and having been left out of the Ipswich squad for their pre-season tour, the NI U21 International would seem surplus to requirements at Portman Road.(10)(2)


18 Jul 2011 00:02:18
Millwall are interested in signing three more players. Manager Kenny Jackett is looking into the possibility of resigning last season's loan star Andros Townsend on loan from Tottenham again. Also former loanee Kevin Lisbie is now a free agent after his contract at Ipswich expired, and will have to prove his fitness to earn a permanent deal with the Lions. The South London club are also tracking young Wolves targetman Sam Vokes as a replacement for fellow Welshman Steve Morison. Vokes would cost Millwall about £800,000.

There will be no more players leaving The Den this summer.(6)(8)
