Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.


I am an exiled Villa fan living in Belgium. Got a couple of rumours, that will turn into fact in the Summer.

Bosko Balaban (who was absolutely dreadful for Villa) will join Rangers in the Summer for 2m euros. He has had an average season over here this year (as has his team) but has done the business in the 2 previous seasons to be fair (top scorer). He has 1 year left on his contract at Club Brugge and will NOT sign a new contract, hence Le Brugeois wanting to get some cash for him.

Belgian&Standard Liege Central midfielder Karel Geraerts (very decent player - who is on a BOsman this Summer) is close to agreeing terms with Celtic. There is also an interview in today's paper with Karel's father (also his agent) who has confirmed that he will leave Standard. Anderlecht are also very strongly interested but whether he will leave Standard for Anderlecht is doubtful. Sheffield Utd were interested last Summer&in the Jan window (Warnock was at some Standard&a Belgium International match) but that has seemingly died a death.

Incidentally, Onyewu will leave Newcastle in the Summer&return to Standard (only to be sold on).

Does anyone have any Hamburg rumours?

OK Lets get thing straight even as a Rangers fan I have to say Celtic are far bigger than Man city, I think this is the usual arrogance south of the border which is why no one likes u and loves it when use get humped anyway to a bigger club than Celtic, Rangers will sign.

Scott Brown - 3 Mil

Denny Kooevermans - 2 Mil

David Healy - 1.5 Mil

Robbie Neilson - 0.5 mil don't know why though?

Webster - 1 Mil

We will sign another 2 players 1 goalkeeper and another defender.

51 and counting


Celtic will be on the look out for a new manager at the season end. Wee Chesney is becoming disillusioned with how the alleged "greatest fans in the world" are treating him. He is of the impression that they still don't like him because he isn't a "Sellik man" He's cheesed off that having delivered 2 titles and reached the last 16 of Champs League that they still chant O'Neills name. He will leave at take over from Glenn Roeder at Newcastle.


Expect to see Reo-coker and Ribery in, . aparently the Reo-Coker deal was done in jan! myt expain why he's had a poor season for the Hammers!

Javier Saviola possibly going to Celtic for £3m? Well I find that a great piece of business for Barcelona considering he is out of contract in the Summer! . Heerenveen defender to Rangers? You sure it wasn't Rosenberg he was looking at? As Koevermans and Balaban are the back up choice if he can't get Rosenberg
