Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Tottenham News:
Redknapp has decided to stick with Gomes and work on his ability to catch the ball. Despite his obvious flaw, the Brazilian stopper does make some tremendous reaction saves when it matters and will therefore stay at Spurs at least until the summer.

Another Brazilian who has been linked with Spurs, Ronaldo, has been told that 'Arry isn't interested and he will therefore oin the Italian side Genoa.

Man City News:
In order to restore some alance in the side Mark Hughes will abandon any plans to sign an attacking player and will focus on tightening up the defensive midfield area. At times City play 4–1–5 which leaves Vincent Kompany to try and protect the back four against a fast counter attack. Expect bids for Lassana Diarra, Miguel Veloso and even possibly Stephen Appiah on a free transfer.

In other news:
Expect Reading Trio Kevin Doyle, Stephen Hunt and Leroy Lita to be the centre of a series of tug–of–war battles between many premier league clubs.

Chelsea winger/striker Scott Sinclair is attracting alot of attention from a series of Championship clubs. Birmingham, QPR and Wolves are currently leading the chase

David Nugent's Pompey misery will be over in January when Ipswich come knocking.

Finally, Dossena will leave Liverpool for £6 million to either Juventus/ Roma and wil replace him with £12 million rated Real Madrid Youngster Marcelo.

The Matador
  Liverpool WILL have the resources to buy who they want in January.They WILL be signing gareth bale for 12m, the yanks realise that he is a quality player and really wworth investing in. They will also use the profit made from the sales of pennant,voronin, el zhar and dossena to buy RAFINHA, DEFOE AND KUBA.
  Rangers Players in:Berra, Evans(loan), Tonel, maybe a winger at the right price.
Also expect to see stephen hughes(motherwell) sign a pre contract agreement in the summer
  Everton fc jan targets are Joćo Moutinho ,victor Obinna, Eljero Elia.
  I've heard from a reliable source that Mike Ashley is willing to give JFK the money he needs in January if the club is still not sold by then. Ashley will only be able to sell the club if they are in an alright position in the league. Also he is willing to sit down with Owen and tie him up to to a new deal before he goes
  This site is more like a bitch–fest than a rumour site. All I read is how much one supporter hates this and that, and then someone else says they hate that club. Blah Blah. Im a Toffee, a realistic one. We won't win the league this season, and will struggle to get into europe again (uefa cup that is). We only have the FA cup left as an alternative route, unless we fancy sacking off the summer break in favour for intertoto hell. No European football will probably mean our better players will start to have their heads turned. Great! Just what we need. We probably won't get our new stadium, won't get bought out by a rich a guy, and be stuck where we are constantly battling to hold onto our precious top six status. (and we are a top six side if you look at past seasons. . give or take a blip or two, but most clubs have them. As for other clubs esp the top four, i do look at you with envy. Liverpool: Gerrard, Torres are just amazing players and the pool have a pretty good team to back them up (although squad depth may be questioned) and I`ll be the first to buy my red mates a pint ( well maybe a half) if they win the league, which this season they seem to have as good a chance as ever. Man Utd. Ronaldo, Berbie, Rooney, Tevez. . I don't need to go on. This team is brill and will be hoping pool and the chelski slip up. Arsenal. Ade, Van Persie, Fabregas. all class players, no wonder these teams are in the top four all the time. Finally chelsea. Anelka, Drogba, Terry, Lamps, Deco . . More magnificent players. Its clear to see why its so difficult to break into the top four. They are a cut above the rest of us at the moment. I cant be bothered sniping with an embittered tone at other clubs. Along with us the current best of the rest, are villa. Spurs will do well with Harry at the helm as he has shown already, and wih spurs` seemingly bottomless pit of money, expect a strong push for the top four next season. Man city have the money and will have a good chance of buying the title like chelsea did. Nothing wrong with that at all. If Everton did it, I`d love every second of it. Pompey will stutter nor harry has left, and i don't think Adams is the man for them. Blackburn won't go forward under Ince, no offence, I just think you wont. As for newcastle, Mike ashley has probably put your progress back a few years. It`ll be a while before you challenge for europe. Not having a pop, just being realistic. Villa will do well again next season, and will challenge the top four, albeit unsuccessfully, and if they have some players poached by 'bigger' clubs they will find it harder still to challenge for europe even. Finally my toffees. I think we might go the way of villa. Great managers, and although i cant comment on villas transfer kitty, it probably doesn't match that of spurs and man city, two teams who i think will challenge for the top four next season, therefore pushing one perhaps two of the top four into uefa cup slots. The cups should be interesting though. Still reading? cheers. As for transfewr rumours, Yak to spurs if we can sign Vagner Love, and Stephen Hunt to sign in january. Thats all folks. Ems
  Aidy Boothroyd could be set to takeover as manager at Colchester United. Paul Lambert is under huge pressure all ready and the club could make a change quicky due to the fact lambert is having trouble with first team players and has lost the dressing room. also lambert is travelling from scotland every other week. something the colchester board are having trouble with
  Rumours flying around Grimsby are that the legend that is Robbie Fowler has been spotted at the towns Millfields hotel. Apparently big mates with Newell? Being a liverpool fan I have made a bold statement at work – if Robbie Fowler ever turns out at Blundell Park for GTFC I will personally eat my colleagues man–bag. But that's what is floating around.
  News out from upton Park. .
spurs have been in pre transfer talks over Sears (possible figure of around £1.5M – £2M)Sears leaving would depend on who else goes so it not certain(see below)
the 'big clearout' that has been talked about is now on the cards, BG will clean up as much as he can before selling the club. come the end of january expect Zola to have to use a lot of youngsters and what are now reserves, survival in the Prem is going to be a very tough road.
expect to lose:
if fit enough for sale . . Ashton(he is gonna take some selling), Dyer and Gabbidon are also on the cards to go
Forget Appiah as wage demands are well above what the Hammers can afford or even want to pay out (LeArse now looking the most likely)

Zola's only way out is to 'loan' players in Jan as no transfers in will be allowed

very grim in E13
  What is everyones problem with Newcastle? Seriously. We post comments on here for other Newcastle fans to read so if you don't like them don't read them, simple! Maybe 5th biggest club in PL is a bit delusional but size of club isn't based on trophies won it's based on awareness of club globally.

On the rumours side of things Newcastle will sign 3–4 players in january:
Mokoena (Blackburn) £3m
Michael Kightley (Wolves) £5m
Michael Dawson (Tottenham) £4m
Derdiyok (FC Basel) £2m

Smith (QPR) £2m
Carroll (Plymouth) £200k
Owen (Aston Villa) £4m
  Arsenal – joloen lescott 10 mill
  A deal has been agreed in principle for Robert Green to move to Tottenham in January for £12million, Cudicini will be the replacement on loan with a £5million but out clause, this will give Zola a budget to play with in January. Dean Ashton may have played his last game of football. His recovery is not going to plan and further surgery is required. If this surgery fails then he will have no choice but retire.
  Im a gooner, and whoever sed arsenal is worth 800m–1.2b is deluded. also wenger has done too much for the club for him to be sacked. usually his excuse for not buying experience is that the team are close to winning. this year howeverm our start has been so bad his eyes are well and truly open. expect one of denilson or song to head off on loan for the rest of the season, expect fabianski to claim number 1 spot sooner rather than later, and expect rob green, yaya toure and one out of zapata and mertesacker to sign in january. fabregas will not leave, it is not about the money for him. bendtner needs to go, he is not adebayor's class. recap: in: green, toure, mertesacker/zapata out: mannone (loan), senderos (permanently, thank god), bendtner, song/denilson (loan), rosicky (we've all had enuf). and for the record, liverpool are not being delusional, they are now putting together a run that title contenders do, whether it lasts remains to be seen, but they r defo a great deal more consistent that last season. the united victory gave them lots of confidence, it was a mental block that has now been overcome. newcastle fan who sed they are 5th biggest in prem. . u crack me up. youve won nothing, come close to winning nothing, do not have a good squad, owen is unfit overrated and past it, in fact youre only great player is shay given and mayb duff, who is playing in a team which is not good enuf for him. hate to say it but spurs are bigger than u. still tipping chelsea for the title. utd second, liverpool 3rd, arsenal 4th, villa 5th. newcastle, west brom and stoke to go down.
  Ha Ha! well lets set some facts – Arsenal won't be sold as all the share holders have refused to sell and have a agreement in place to stop the selling of the club. Teves has been linked away in Jan (including to arsenal) this cant happen is part of his contract with Utd that he is there for the season. now for some real things happeningh at Arsenal – Expect a young exciting manager to be brought in under Wenger to learn the Arsenal Way before the man moves upstairs. Also Arsene and the New Man have already met and Wenger admits he has made a mistake in not making singings so will be busy over Jan and end of season as seen below.

  LOL have to say this funny reading all the everton/liverpool/newcastle rumors i agree liverpool are a bit deluded in thinking every single player will sign for them but winning the league you never chelski won it just 3 years ago when everyone wrote them off as for aussie red since when has McDonald been a goal scoring phenom he scored Celtics 1ST GOAL in europe this season hardly makes him a goal scoring phenom now dose it.

Now for the my rumor plain and simple smith will buy 1 player possibly another bid for Reynolds and will try and sell players like Darchiville, Hemdani and Graham Smith who never get a game not regualer players such as Broadfoot and Novo, and to my fellow bear who said Velikia will go can't you rember last season if a player has played for 2 diffrent clubs u can't sell him.
  Liverpool will sign maicon from inter milan for 8 million pounds and the move will be funded by the sales of degen to lazio (5million) and pennant (5million) to bolton.Voronin will secure his place at hertha berlin with his side spending 4(million). El zhar will move to a struggling spanish team for 3 million and liverpool will use these profits to buy Kuba. The sale of dossena and aurelio will bring in 11 millon and LFC will bid 11miliion for defoe

yanks will throw in 10 miilion for bale.
Pacheco will also be promoted to the first team in february.
