Bolton looking at Coventry defender Richard Keogh(10)(23)Norwich thought to be interested as wellUnsurprising really as Keogh has been amazing for us this season.

Would be desperate times if he goes, but Thorn has made him captain to try and tempt him to stay.

Miralem Pjanic is linked with a move to Leeds on loan from Roma with Simon Graysons midfield looking weak with a few injuries. Leeds' midfield is without Jonathan Howson and Robert Snodgrass. The Scotsman is expected to be out until early February/Late January, while Howson's return date is still currently in doubt. Grayson is looking to boost his creativity in the middle area of the park as he hopes to find himself and his team push their way back into the play offs.

Other Championship teams including Southampton, West Ham, Leicester and from the Premier League, West Brom, Everton and QPR are interested in signing the attacking midfielder on a two months loan deal while he regains his feet after not impressing as well at Roma as he did previously at Metz and Lyon. QPR are later planning to sign the young Bosnian on a permanent deal if he impresses from until the end of his possible loan.(7)(42)

"Carlisle may be losing Ribeiro but will look to sign goalkeeper Dean Gerken. The second choice stopper is keen on leaving Ashton Gate to get more football and will sign for United until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent deal."

Agree the keeper who is wanted by top championship clubs replaced by second choice keeper. Bit similar player both to big to even shoot round if they're is any proper rumours please tell us. But leeds wont want Ribeiro good player but needs to get more experince before championship and upwards(4)(11)

rangers :

in :

sutter - young boys
sandaza - st johnstone
kris boyd/ gary o'connor
fraser fyvie - aberdeen

out :

fleck - sheffield united ( loan )
broadfoot - bristol city

yes, i'll admit rangers' current financial situation isn't great, but they will still get more transfer money than any league 1 side and most championship sides as well as having better players and paying more wages.

p.s. man city fans are welcome to make digs at our transfer budget but not supporters of clubs such as bristol city who think their club is something ... it's not.(8)(32)Man city fans would do well to remember were they were a few yrs ago until their sugardaddy arab bought them overYou have no money to buy any players just sell

you will soon be going into administration

league one teams would give you a better game than the likes of stjohnstone and st mirre joke scotish football lol lol lol at all scottish peopleHaha it's cost city 1 billion to get where they are and they still lack respect!!Rangers have £25m over 5 years to spend and players worth over £10m, name me a league 1 team who can match that or could beat rangers ... you'll struggleLeague 1 teams live within there means and pay taxesReally thats why leicester got danns cos you offered him paltry wages bet you a months wage most championship teams pay more than you can offer thats why you are buying players from st johnstone etc or freebiesLol at this if Jelavic is worth a supposed £10 million then Jordan Rhodes is worth £20 million, and I'm a Reading fanREADING FAN, How many times have you seen jelavic player.

POST 6 - leicester city are not a league 1 team, as my reply ur budget is a joke


31 Dec 2011 20:08:15

Im pretty sure there skint now.Jelly to West Brom,more chance of knittin fog mate at that price,Chairman Peace would n,t pay that much for Messi,Silva,and weekend on Mars.Bendikson has already left?Garry o conner not good enough- riordon would not consider a move to ibrox he proved that already

Burnley boss Eddie Howe is planning to hit the January sales, with the Clarets having identified a list of possible targets.(7)(8)Wow. That's one hell of a rumour.


31 Dec 2011 19:55:39
Happy New Year, ED! I am a Bristol City fan, and very happy about last night's result! Pearson should sign for us in January, he is an ideal replacement for that traitor, Nicky Maynard! Also HOT true rumour from a Bristol Rovers fan, who I know, said to me, that the GAS had a subtitute goalie on to replace Bevan at half time in today's 5-2 defeat against Crewe! My mate saw Bevan LEAVE the Memorial Stadium and sped away from the ground in ANGER! Could this be the end of Bevan and Buckle at the Mem? PS: My mate is an honest guy who NEVER tells lies.(8)(6)If Buckle is sacked expect him to replace Skiverton @ Yeovil. Johnson and Millen will be reunited at the Mem, after turning down the chance to go to Yeovil.


31 Dec 2011 19:51:57
Paul Lambert Has announced that he talked to harry redknapp the other day after the game to discuss future of kyle naughton(21)(7)

Blackburn are set to loan out striker jordan slew to millwall until the end of the season. source-mate who works at ewood park(10)(5)


31 Dec 2011 19:48:12

Lee Hughes 35 k from Notts reserves
Lee Johnson 125 k from Bristol City
Jimmy Ryan 100k from Scunthorpe
Johnathon Grounds 250k from Middlesbourgh
Unamed keeper - onloan

Tomy Lee - 275k to LEEDS DEAL DONE
Jamie Lowry - 25K to CREWE
Scot Boden - 50K to Morecambe(0)(26)None are true lee will only go to leeds if its 500k or moreYou'll never get super jimmy from the iron, him and barch (andy barcham) are our only attacking threats at the momentRYAN - would rather play in front of 7k fans instead of the 3k at the iron my friendLike chesterfield have the money to get all them. leeds wont pay 275k to buy the crappest goalkeeper in league 1 when they have got goalkeepers like lonergan and taylor. leeds must be desperate if they sign lee.Notts Reserves, are u crazy?We (CFC) have got about 200k to play around with, so those prices are somewhat out of reach. Not surprised if Leeds are keen on Tommy Lee though. A few Championship clubs were sniffing around last season. Oh, and just because the rest of the team is carp and can't defend at all, does not automatically make Lee a bad keeper. He's one of the best in the division, he just has muppets in front of him (Plus, he's been injured for a lot of the season, another reason why we've got such a dodgy defensive record).35K for Hughes, are you crazy? they wouldn't sell him anyway he's a goal machine.


31 Dec 2011 19:41:55
Norwich to sign Kyle Naughton on a permanent deal, Lambert hopes to have deal tied up soon.
Source: would mean Corluka's not going anywhere this window, unless Spurs pick up another right back.

Hutton is not going back to partick but two players from rangers are going to partick. Cole and naismith are going on loan to partick. Cracking youth players don't waste them partick.(11)(8)


31 Dec 2011 19:08:12
Strong rumours suggest Blackburn Rovers have offered Jason Roberts and £3million to Bristol City for Nicky Maynard. Another source at Ashton Gate says that Nicky Hunt is going to Peterborough and Dave Clarkson to Hull City. Derek McInnes is keen to offload Lee Johnson but no-one seems interested and Ryan Taylor who seems likely to return to Rotherham in January.(7)(25)Have heard the same rumours - maybe our source is the same.


31 Dec 2011 18:48:04
Southampton are set to sign Fulhams young hotshot Marcelo trotta on a short term loan deal in january. Trotta is currently on loan at wycombe where he has scored 6 goals in the last 4 games. His loan deal there is about to expire and saints are apprantly very keen to get the player to st amrys even though it will only be for a short term.... Source-Saintsweb.(10)(12)Would like to see this happen, and very possible too....Good work cortese


31 Dec 2011 18:23:04
Apparently kyle Hutton is going back to Partick Thistle from rangers until end of season(3)(7)Partick thistle get less fans than the entire converance who caresThat reply doesn't make sense. Yes, if all the teams in the conference are added together, they get more fans than partick thistle, but thats 20 teams ...He's going to sheffield united


31 Dec 2011 18:12:41
Bristol city to sign either billy sharp or Francisco sandaza

I'd prefer sharp as He has a clinical record at this level and is younger


Sandaza would not be a bad shout seeing as how many goals he's scored recently up in scotland and he also knows Derek mcinnes very well seeing as he managed him at st Johnstone before moving to BCFC. But there is doubt wether he can perform at championship level as having a spell with Brighton in the past and only scoring 2goals in 15 appearances is he worth the gambLe or. Better going for a proven goal scorer in sharp(4)(25)Sharp isn't going to join a lowly side like Brizzle City. Not a hope in hell.Sandaza played for dundee united then brighton so mc innes has never managed him before..but i still think he could do it for bristol city and would cost pennies compared to sharp


31 Dec 2011 18:09:32
Leeds have had a offer for Readings young goalkeeper Alex McCarthy rejected as Leeds want him permanently after a sucessful loan spell as they have described him as a good youngster with alot of potential(17)(8)Mcarthy is deffo a top class goalie of the future and as a leeds fan would love him perm! but realy cant see reading letting him go..


31 Dec 2011 18:04:57
Anros Townsend to Leeds as they need a new winger to replace Max Gradel but this would only be a loan to the end of the season and Keith Andrews has been a name thrown around once his loan has run out at Ipswich but i doubt that(15)(11)Signed


31 Dec 2011 18:00:31
Liverpool and man utd going to make move for hazard hope liverpool get him.(26)(30)Would love to see him at liverpool

31 Dec 2011 17:35:26
celtic making official £5m bid for huddersfields jordan rhodes(22)(33)Celtic are going to pay huddersfield in buttons as they like all other scottish teams havent any moneyCeltic might offer £3m but not £5m. Dont think we can match his clubs valuationCeltic my friend does indeed have money, but they wont pay close to the overinflated 5m stated here for a guy thats only ever scored in League 1 in england, remember Gary hooper similar age and strikerate £2.4m secured himPahaha why go to celtic when prem teams are after him?Why go to celtic? chance of playing in Europe? actually winning a trophy? possible 1st team football? not rotting away in prem team reserves, or going to a middle to bottom of table team that will win nothing! this guy is a fine player and scored many goals, but alas in league 1 in England, untried at higher level, hes worth more to Huddersfield for the 2nd half of their season. Celtic secured Gary Hooper for £2.4m similar age and strikerate £3m should secure him for celtic if he has any aspirations in life!If he has any asperations in life as you say,then why would he join a club that is part of a two horse race year after year with very little media coverage.The rest of your top flight teams are on a par with the English League 1 teams.Apart from Celtic and Rangers the attendances,well,best left never said i think.Back to Rhodes,not yet proved at a higher level domestically but proven at u21 level with Scotland, which would probably be around English Championship level.J R is a natural scorer,as his record with us shows.
Season 1,age 18-19,scored 24 in league and cups.Good finishing but strength was a downside to his game and was getting battered week after week as his reputation grew.Was rested for a few matches and on the bench later on in the season to recharge his batteries as it was his first full season.
Season 2,age 19-20,scored 23.Was left on bench quite a lot,the reason was rumoured to be a fall out with Lee Clark.Strength a bit better,finishing was still quality as he was only 1 goal behind the previous season with a lot less starts.
Season 3,age 20-21,scored 21 in league and cups and 6 for Scotland U21 in 6 games.His strength has improved having worked hard over the summer and preseason on it.For Huddersfield his ratio is 21 goals in 22 games so far and 6 in 6 for Scotland U21.THIS YOUNG LAD IS EXTRA SPECIAL.Give him good service and he will hit the back of the net with either his head or feet.
That is why he is worth a lot more than £3M.That is why he would not come anywhere near Scotland.Judging by the number of times he has been scouted this season by celtic ( among others) it is clear they want him but we do not want to sell nor need to and the boy is happy. Promotion or not determines his fate in aprilReasons why he would join celtic..european football,trophies,to play for one of the best supported teams in the world and if he is playing for one of scotlands best teams he is a dead cert to be in every scotland why sign for a bottom/middle EPL team with no chance of trophies no chance of europe and if the team is getting pumped every week by man city chelski or any of the other top teams he will have less chance of being called up to the international me its a simple choice if it needs to be made..If he joins celtic their is a chance of cup winning medals and such , and playing in champions league ... but yes he could join the likes of west brom or such and just rot away and go no where , celtic is one of the biggest well known clubs in the world and fans are outstanding so why would he not want to join celtic fyi TOP OF THE LEAGUE !!In reply to the story the good chap posted, beating teams like chesterfield, rochdale, and yeovil are good for your record but dont have the quality of players (defenders) as the championship never mind EPL, He is scottish first and foremost, but he could play in europe against teams better than championship level and test himself, he would play in front of 60k at home every second week and become a fan favourite like Gary Hooper who was the paltry sum of £2.4m for a fine finisher who has scored at european level now! and further enhanced his career. he would be contesting for at least 3 trophies a year in scotland, and medals enhance your career also. That said if say wigan, bolton or blackburn came in with a £6-7m bid and offered him 15-20k a week he would become wealthy fast and sit mid-bottom table each year and never win a trophy, if its money = EPL if its aspirations = SPL then perhaps EPL down the lineCeltic are a fine football club & Jordan considers himself to be scottish BUT he won't be going anywhere til summer at the earliest

31 Dec 2011 16:34:14
Simon Grayson summoned to a meeting with Ken Bates on Monday 2nd Jan after shocking loss at Barnsley(36)(15)Something has to happen,this is a great club,but we are living on our past glories,and are accepting second best.thats not the way forwardNothing about a shock defeat this season, any team can beat anyother at any time.. positions 3 - 6 will be confirmed last day of the season i thinkWe are playing on Monday, so if Bates is in the country, he will meet with Grayson anyway. Whatever is said is regardless, because our weak team is responsible for our performance recently, and not Grayson, who has worked virtual wonders with it. Now he just needs to show some ambition in the transfer market, and make players want to come to Leeds again.
wally4-1 can we play you every weekOne thing is for certain leeds will finish above barnsley


31 Dec 2011 16:15:05

Jay rodriguez will not sign for southampton for anything less than 8m and burnley will use this money to stabilise the club and there will be no more ins or outs for the rest of the season.(13)(23)Rotherham to get alan lee and goran lovre on loanIf they really want £8M then we'll look else where. Looks like Jutkiewicz and Lee in instead anywayWhy do people seriosuly think he is worth that much money? Dream on.8 million thats funny, won't get half of thatConnor Whickham £12M?? Jay Rod has to be a bargain at £8m

31 Dec 2011 14:53:36
Danny Wilson is set to join Blackpool on loan until the end of the season while Liverpool are also set to offer Craig Bellamy a one year extension. Gary Cahill is today being linked with Liverpool but realistically Liverpool have Martin Skrtel,Daniel Agger,Jamie Carragher,Sebastian Coates,Danny Wilson{who is going out on loan} and even Martin Kelly who can play there I think it is highly unlikely. Liverpool might make one signing this January or they might make none. Lukas Podolski and Ezequiel Lavezzi are being considered but unless Maxi Rodriguez or Dirk Kuyt leave I don't expect much movement in the window. Comolli and Daglish are considering a loan deal for Lassana Diarra but I would prefer to see Jay Spearing or even Jordan Henderson take up the holding role for the next six months until Lucas Leiva returns.(32)(10)Well considering podolski signed an extention to contract in last 10 days doubtful


31 Dec 2011 14:48:50

Emmanuel Frimpong has passed his medical at Wolves and will sign on loan for the rest of season. Wolves are believed to have tied up all there January business early and all signings will be completed before the end of next week. Expect the biggest of these to be Kenwynne Jones for a fee of around £5m. Wolves are also set to listen to offers for a few of there fringe players. Voles and Keogh are definate to go and possibly Sylvan Ebanks Blake as well. With Leicester believed to readying a bid in the region of £1.5m prolific Championship hitman.(32)(6)5 million for kenwyn...... Behave you could get at least 10 for him!Ebanks-Blake for 1.5 Million! Joker...he is worth at least 3 Million. If he signed for Leicester i guarantee he will take them up.Jones for 5 million is a joke, it will be 8 million at the very least, and would he want to go to Wolves (Championship next season)?


31 Dec 2011 13:34:48

31 Dec 2011 12:08:26
Birmingham City are set to make a £1.2 million for Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy. The former England under 21 stopper is regarded as crucial to the future of Reading but Chris Hughton is keen on bringing McCarthy to the Midlands.
Another familiar name set to leave The Madejski is playmaker Brian Howard. The former Barnsley legend is in talks with Scunthorpe over a possible loan deal that will take him to the League 1 club until the end of the season.
Reading are also set to lose Cedric Baseya and Brett Williams. French midfielder Baseya, is in talks with Lincoln City as new manager David Holdsworth looks to recruit in his first window. Striker Williams is also set to leave The Madejski, after being subject of an undisclosed bid from Leyton Orient.
We wouldn't sell McCarthy to a championship rival especially not for that price. Baseya is a striker not a midfielder. The only possible one of those you have listed would be Williams to Orient as our gamble on him hasn't paid off.(4)(18)Blues dont have that sort of cash for a goalie they need a striker
we already have a decent goalie on loan for season in myhill with butland and doyle as backups

Coventry look set to sell Jutkiewicz to Southampton for £1.5 million.

Coventry owners wanted to keep the highly rated forward but are being forced to sell because fans' boycotts are thought to be costing the club money.

Although fans' boycotts haven't cost the club a significant sum yet, owners SISU have projected the boycott costs forwart to the end of the season and fear a large drop in revenue.

At the very time the club is battling for survival, it is bitterly ironic that stayaway fans are causing more damage than SISU's cost-cutting measures(5)(13)Probably a Leicester fan or some other person here.

Gillingham will again be watching Jamie turner of fisher athletic on Monday when they play beckenham town. The Kent side are known for finding talent from non-league.(5)(3)Laughable comment- to say gillingham are known for finding local talent is a joke. Smalling comes to mind.

Maynard ( bristol c)
Gunter ( nottm f)
Lansbury ( arsenal)

Smith - loan (brighton)
Martin - loan extension (palace)
Lappin - Colchester(1)(29)And Surman Southampton.Lansbury cant go yet as he is on loan for a seanson to the hammersI would be mightily surprised if Arsenal did not have a clause in the loan contract stating that the player can be sold to anyone who bids enough during the windows.

Bristol rovers have bid 50k for Barnets
in form striker Izale Mcleod. The striker
is out of contract in the summer.(1)(15)That would be useful because they are rubbishSTFC have bid higher than Rovers for Mcleod and why would he go to a team heading for the conference. And why would Barnet accept less money when STFC have offered more.

just seen report that southampton are to sign japenese striker tadanari lee(6)(9)Ah so,much good news.Sounds like an alright player. Full international, with a decent goal to game ratio. Anyone know anything about him, or his style of play?Just youtubed him, looks alright, standard in the box type player. Scored a few good goals, but nothing spectacular.He scored a good goal in the 2011 AFC Asian Cup Final. Youtube it.Ha Ha he's rubbish!

Moussa Sow - 17m
Thierry Henry - 2 month loan
Phillippe Mexes - 5.5m
Adam Johnson - Loan (till end of season)
Ganso - 20m (more likely to happen in summer)


Carlos Vela - ?? (loan till end of season... a few clubs are interested)
Abou Diaby - Blackburn - Loan (till end of season)
Andrey Arshavin - Back to Zenit (Loan till end of season)(3)(52)Vela is already on loan for the rest of the season in spain somewhereYou have obviously made this up , Arsenal have never been after Ganso and Mexes has recently moved . Vela is already on loan in the Liga BBVA (Spanish league) so why would they be other teams looking for him on loan ?!? . We are not going to get rid of Arshavin in january and defo not send him out on loan because we will be without Gevinho and Chamakh for about 1 or 1/2 mounths so he will be playing a big part in the rest of our season and he will be used alot when we rotate are team.Carlos vela should come to westham

Rangers are set to make a 3.5 offer for billy sharp on a 2 year deal.(2)(37)There skint and dont have the cash too pay that amount for anyone£3.5 million deal hey? He's available for £1.85 million! It was a stipulation written into his contract. {Ed001's Note - isn't the stipulation only if the team is an English Premier League club?}3.5 what? emeber is Rangers we are talking aboutJohn Ryan (Doncaster Chairman) said: "When the window opens on January 1st, Billy's contract with Doncaster Rovers will include a release clause.

"Lots of clubs are circling. Southampton and Ipswich made previous bids. Anybody who matches that new figure can talk to Billy.”Any championship clubs interested will blow Rangers out of the water. Why drop about 3 levels to go to SPL?Aye right....... What with , Luncheon vouchers?Rangers are set to make a 3.5 offer for billy sharp on a 2 year deal.

So the Billy Boys want Billy Boy - They couldn't even match the wages that teams like Leicester/southampton can manage in the chumpionship, never mind the premier league clubs circlingThat's right septic are loaded, not , craig whyte will put money in wait and seeRangers will spend big in this window, word is he'll get all the jelavic cash & another 4m, watch out all those championship clubs who think they can compete with the REAL big boysCraig whyte is the skintest billionaire on the planet, he will not fork out any more money after Mccoist buought the flops bedoya, ortiz, and matt mckay Mr Mccoist will not be trusted will any cash and rangers have a £10m 'black hole' in the accounts as Mr Whyte stated himself, there will be outs Jelvic and possibily Davis and they will be replaced will players on less wages

Liverpool have matched Chelsea's £7m offer for Bolton defender Gary Cahill and are also prepared to let Danny Wilson join on a six month loan deal along with meeting Cahill's wage demands, the player himself would prefer a stay up North so we shall wait and see this one should conclude in the next couple of days. Liverpool may have to cope without Luis Suarez for a substantial period if his 8-game ban comes into force and if they lose the appeal it could turn into a 10-12 game ban but Daglish and Comolli are prepared and are considering an offer for Napoli forward Ezequeil Lavezzi. Liverpool are willing to offer £20m + Maxi Rodriguez but will only make an offer should Suarez lose his appeal otherwise no big moves will be made until next summer.(7)(29)Danny wilson is off to blackpool till end of season with jon jo shelvey


31 Dec 2011 09:19:35
Chelsea have told Everton they will match the £20 million price tag for Rodwell in January.

Everton need the money but like most transfers, the £20 million will be paid over a 12 month period, thus reducing Moyes' options to reinvest.

Moyes will be allowed to bring in loan players and free transfers but it is doubtful if he will be able to make major new signings.(18)(9)A contradiction in terms there, surely if most transfers were paid over 12 months (I believe most are longer) then the same would apply to players Moyes might want to buy. There's no logic in that argument unless a club demanded an upfront payment for a player which is hardly the normNo contradiction at all. Everton don't want to commit to long term spendingWell then it's not that that's reducing Moyes options at all then, simply the club not wanting to spend any money

2 pieces of spurs news for you, firstly andros Townsend will join Aston villa on loan for the rest of the season, hoping he matures in the same way Kyle walker did last season. Secondly spurs have made an enquiry about higuains availability.(19)(31)Hasn't Townsend signed on loan for Leeds?He hasn't signed anywhere yet. Leeds, QPR have both been linkedTownsend wants to play football, not rugby. He wont go to Leeds!I think Townsend will be looking at reserve football at Villa. Villa are returning to the side they looked like 3-4 years ago (a team with a decent all-round team!).

Lee Clarke making himself look stupid, Jordan Rhodes is going to Norwich next week, money talks and the player wants to play in the premier league(15)(30)No mate your the one who looks stupid!
Huddersfield have a chairman who has been a live long fan! hes also loaded and does not need to sell any players so i guess in this case money doesnt talk, lol Im a Leeds fan btwIm a huddersfield fan and no jordan rhodes will not be signing for norwich and if he were to go which he wont someone would have 2 cough up 10 mill 2 sign him£10m? haha you are having a laugh right?
Dale Jennings goes for peanuts to Bayen Munich and you think your "championship player at best" is worth £10m? Dream on son.
Alex Chamberlain also left Southampton for Arsenal for less than £10m.
Wake up you silly little boyGood player, not worth £10 million though, probably will go to either Norwich,Sunderland or West Ham/Celtic. All up to him... should get a cool £5 million plus add ons. Word is Lee Clark is had to pick between 2 players as replacement, Freddy Eastwood or Matt Tubbs.The 10M figure is plain stupid, while he looks a really good league 1 player the premier league is a little different, you do not get the time he currently enjoys in Div 1.
It does not matter how much money the chairman is worth, if the offer is good for the club they may accept it assuming the player insists on the opportunity to join a premier league club who has one of the brightest young managers around. Certainly Lambert would be interested in him, but I doubt he would consider gambling more than 4M+ add ons for Rhodes, because he is very unproved at a higher level. A good example is CMS at Brighton hyped up by Peterboro to artificially inflate his price, and he is not exactly ripping the championships to bits is he.I very much doubt a former Ipswich lad would ever sign for Norwich!Listen the chairman has stated in the local paper that reguardless of how much is offered the lad is going no where! plain and simple! so you can throw the " if a good offer comes in he'll go " statement out the window
As much as it pains me to put this ( as Im a LUFC Fan) Huddersfield town are not a selling club . the only way I can see him going is if all the pape talk unsettles the player and he starts believing his own hype , plus we all know the only club he wants to join is Leeds any way lol (legs it)All these clubs aint got 10 million between themNot a selling club? thats why the sold their two best players in the summer. (pilks and Peltier) hes not going anywhere though until the summer. who would cough up big money on someone who has played well for 6months? too much of a gamble6 months? 58 goals in 101 games is abit better than playing well for 6 month, he won't go anywhere for less than 7 million as we just don't need the money!If Jordan Rhodes has got any ambitions to play in the premiership, I doubt he would wish to sign for youI agree that no ipswich player is likely to sign for norwich. Jordan Rhodes has obviously got ambitionChamberlain went for £12M + 3M add ons. Soton dictated the price cos they didn't want to lose him and Huddersfield seem to be in same position. Norwich fans are forgetting where they came from.Lee Clarke is an person .period.Rhodes will go for £3.5 .We buy expensive and sell cheap always have.At least in the 44 years i have supported town.Dean hoyle is a diamond.

This is the talk in the office...

Ins:Ched Evans George Boyd Scott Loach
Josh M from Chelsea.
Steve Cook - He will leave if a chat with Gus doesn't go well. He will stay if he is reassured he is part of the first team plans.
Vicente - Free.
Paynter - Loan termination
Dunk - Spurs, Levy has offered a substantial amount, plus a re-loan for remainder of the season to Brighton plus Townsend. And a buy back clause. Fee in the region of 2m.

gus poyet has said he will not breaak the bank in januray and them 4 players would cost a bomb and as for the outs all of them could be possible but why would spurs by dunk in exchange for townsend who has just the other day signed a new long term contract at White hart lane??(3)(14)I assume it means townsend on loan, not a permanent deal

That said Cavani seems to be happy in Serie A and at Napoli so I don't see him moving. A good player though who could do well in the PL {Ed002's Note - Cavani would cost a good deal more than £27M and will likely move to Real Madrid.}

Aston villa takeover:

Randy Lerner currently owns 96% of Aston Villa & is trying to buy up the remaining shares (as i own a small villa share - there has been a letter sent to me to enquire if I would like to sell my shares).
If Lerner owned 100% of Aston Villa , he could sell Aston Villa in a private transaction & he would not need to inform the stock markets.
If/as soon as he owns 100% of Aston Villa, He will be selling off his shares to several people.

Michael Neville (25%)
Jack Petchey - ex major shareholder with Doug Ellis(5%)
Doug Ellis (10%)
Ray Ranson (10%)

Comer Homes Group (Owned by the Comer brothers) & QIA (Qatar Investment Association) are going to be going head to head to grab the remaining 50% of Aston Villa.
Comer Homes Group could take 20% & QIA the last 30% .. giving them a majority shareholding.

You heard it hear first!.

Franko.D(13)(12)Anything to rid of of Lerner. Pray God it be true.So he has to buy the other 4%, first which wont happen, cos they don't want to sell, if they did don't you think they would have already. As for QIA, they can't own a stake in another club, conflict of interest, and even if they did they wouldn't spend loads of money cos of the financial fair play, besides not being nasty but who would want to join villa, someone's dreaming me thinksIt's my understanding Lerner owns 89.96%Obviosely a blues fan said that and just to point out we are STILL a huge club the 4th biggest and most successful club in England UTV !!!Who would of wanted to join city before there takeover you person just look at em now money talks.It has taken city a fair old while to get a decent side together, if villa were taken over they wouldnt have that luxury, this is someone's pipe dream, not going to happen, and another thing, prove you are a shareholder, take a pic of your share certificate and send it in, total rubbishReturn of Deadly Doug (soon to be knighted ;))

thanks for the info franko, saw this has started to be on lots of other sites that are talking about the end of Randy Lerner.
Maybe David Cameron & Prince William (who support Villa) will invest too!Well actually QIA can invest in the club so long as they dont have the majority control of the club. If this is true (which i hope it is), Lerner will get his shares back, lower the wage bills and then privately sell 49% to QIA.I thought ranson was involved with coventry
and that u cannot be involved with 2 clubs

Lewis McGugan (Nottm Forest) is set to leavewith Ipswich Town the likely destination after the Tracor Boys bid of around £1 million having been accepted.(10)(8)He will be in the premiershipNot with Ipswich he won'tIts more likely he be be playing 40 miles up the road at Carrow road, along with team mate Chris Gunter, and it will cost Lambert at least £3M to secure the pair.Forest website reporting Norwich have had a £3.5m bid for Lewis and Chris turned down. Would be looking for £4.5m+ for the pair.

Right Bolton fans, I am hearing that Cahill's replacement will be Posh's Ryan Bennett, a highly rated England U21 international.

The fee will be in the region of 3.5 million plus add ons.
This will also give a significant windfall to Grimsby Town who have a decent sell on clause.

Michael Jacobs of Northampton Town will be brought buy Peterborough for a fee in the region of 500k.(8)(14)I know Ryan as im from Grimsby and im a fine follower of grimsby town, Ryan made over 106 apperances for grimsby and captained the first team at the age of 17. He's worth more than 3.5millionBennett must really like playing in the championship , cause that where he will be playing football next season.Rumours at Crawley are that Bolton have interest in highly rated centre back Kyle mcfazdeanJacobs would ever go there

Their leading goalscorer has been starting on the bench in previous games, with the frontman looking for more game time.

Championship teams are also in the run to sign the New Zealand international on loan. West Brom have said they will let their 6ft3 striker go for the right price.(4)(13)Ha - he is going out on loan simple (no sale!!)And it won't be to NorwichIt was a succesful loan spell with blues and his loan expires in feb or jan some time personally he shuld stay with blues but wigan is the best option

The Congo international is set to speak to the Premier League side once his loan spell at Doncaster expires at the beginning of January. He is expected to move for around £450,000.(24)(11)For that price they would get himI think Mick would be more keen on Onuoha from City, or Bassong from Spurs, before going after someone not needed by a Championship club. That's if he's sane.Wish west ham would siighn thick mick

Birmingham City are set to make a £1.2 million for Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy. The former England under 21 stopper is regarded as crucial to the future of Reading but Chris Hughton is keen on bringing McCarthy to the Midlands.
Another familiar name set to leave The Madejski is playmaker Brian Howard. The former Barnsley legend is in talks with Scunthorpe over a possible loan deal that will take him to the League 1 club until the end of the season.
Reading are also set to lose Cedric Baseya and Brett Williams. French midfielder Baseya, is in talks with Lincoln City as new manager David Holdsworth looks to recruit in his first window. Striker Williams is also set to leave The Madejski, after being subject of an undisclosed bid from Leyton Orient.(3)(18)I think this transfer might just happen cuz after boaz myhills loan spell has ended and Ben foster comes back Ben foster has already probably fallen out of hand with Birmingham city so Alex McCarthy might actually go there as a replacement. Much younger blood too more energy and will last longer.McArthy is not leaving his future is at Reading he said so himselfBham could not afford £1.20 never mind £1.2m


30 Dec 2011 17:29:50
Bolton want Josh McEachran and Ulises Davila plus the agreed 7mil cash for Gary Cahill. Davila was on loan in Italy following his move to Chelsea, which I think was from Udinese. Chelsea will have to recall the young winger before Bolton agree a deal for Cahill. This was a bit sketchy, but what I heard.
wally(6)(13)You can't have two players on loan from the same club in the PL I believeIf i recall correctly didnt birmingham have seb larsson and nicklas bendtner on loan from arsenal at the same time. Might be because they where in championship though as leeds had eric lichaj and barry bannan from villa last year. {Ed001's Note - the rules were altered in the summer, I think that was one of the changes made. Though it might only apply to Premier League teams, I am not sure, it is difficult to keep track with the rulebook being such a boring thing to read.}


30 Dec 2011 17:26:57
One player unlikely to be leaving the Boleyn Ground this winter is central defender James Tomkins, who has been a target of Newcastle's former West Ham manager Alan Pardew.

Sam Allardyce, speaking about Newcastle's interest said: "While there might be some interest in James it would have to be mega bucks for us to even consider that.

"Not that we want to, but you never know what's round the corner - and it would be the same with anybody else."(9)(7)


30 Dec 2011 17:25:46
Fulham are set to make a move for Carlton Cole during the forthcoming transfer window, according to reports.

Jason Burt, writing in today's Telegraph claims that Martin Jol is a long-term admirer of the West Ham striker and has identified him as a potential replacement for Bobby Zamora, who is likely to depart Craven Cottage this January.

Fulham are said to value Cole at around the £4million mark; West Ham are likely to ask for double that should they decide to part with a player who, whilst blowing hot and cold during his five years at the club is considered a vital first team member at present.(15)(5)


30 Dec 2011 17:17:16
Wolves are looking at making a double bid for Roman Pavlyuchenko and Vedran Corluka, and will hope to finance it through a major sale of one of their starting strikers, most likely Steven Fletcher or Kevin Doyle to an interested Arsenal.(15)(34)Sell doyle if this offer is trueWolves army going to sell in the jan windowI don't think Arsenal are intersted in Doyle and Fletcher.There were rumors in the summer that Arsenal were going to bid for Doyle, I've heard that they find Fletcher attractive right now and there's other teams that are rumored to be after Doyle. sounds plausible to me, I'd expect them to at least look at either Bassong or Corluka myself, they need defenseDoyle is off to the boggies ,cash plus player,heard it could be cox.


30 Dec 2011 17:24:21
Sam Allardyce has revealed that he is unlikely to make a second bid for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes.
Allardyce boss confirmed that West Ham had indeed made an approach for the highly-rated 21-year-old - but insisted that a fee was never discussed.
"Jordan Rhodes has only been an enquiry, not an offer or bid," he told the Sun. "We've had a straightforward, absolute 'no, not for sale' from Hudddersfield so that is out of the equation.(14)(8)Why would jordan go backwards in his career with a failure of a managerWestham are ofering good money they should take it

30 Dec 2011 16:36:27
tottenham have accepted a bid from roma for defender vedran corluka and will recall right back Kyle naughton from his loan spell at Norwich, they are able to do this because of a clause in the contract before you Norwich fans start complaining about me.

to replace naughton and strengthen their squad, Norwich have submitted a £3.5million bid for Nottingham forest players; (right back) Chris gunter and (centre midfielder) Lewis mcgugan.
it is believed that Nottingham forest will accept this offer as they desperately need money and these two stars want to get away from the city ground.

Norwich have also inquired about two other players,
Michael turner at Sunderland and the other is believed to be a striker/winger who's identity is unknown.(24)(14)Is that the same Gunter who has told Forest he does not want to leave?Pity little Naarwich are unable to keep Naughton. Hey ho onwards and upwards.Yep,like thre Tierney who told Colchester he wasn't leaving last season !Chrisy stay at Forest, and help the club to survive.Cant see any of this happening personally. recall clauses only exist with short term loans usually when there is no fee involved. would like to know why you think there is a clause? plus hope we dont spend 3.5mill on them!Naughton is on a season long loan, and per Premier league rules he cannot be recalled. Norwich may attempt to buy him which is a possibility, and assuming the player and Tottenham are happy. This would also allow Norwich to bring in another loan player.

Jonathan Forte has turned down a move to walsall for the better option of joining Chesterfield as he sees the club as a beter prospect with much better fan base(4)(16)Not too confident on his goal scoring, but were staying up and your going down as your a small league 2 team. And were a previous championship team. UTS!Just saying that as a Southampton fan, signing Forte isn't something to be proud of. Sorry to burst your bubbles.HI Walsall fan - if your a bigger club lets look at the fan base of the last two seasons

cfc - 6972 - 6623
wfc- 4033 - 4512
season 10/11 - 11/12

this stat means we are simply a bigger club than you infact we are 30 percent bigger fan base and we are bottom of table

small club should be in league 2 with your fan base by bye walsallYeah,because at every club he's been at he's a real fans favourite,you'll find out.
He's lucky to be earning a wage in football. He's useless.Lol Chesterfield fan, when did you last play Cardiff Leeds Leciester Southampton wolves Birmingham WBA in the league, c'mon I mean your never going to get anywhere near that level. We have been there, so go home and keep feeding jack lester his old age pills.

If we dont get him then its Baba DiawaraWho said celtic have no money? they are stable financially and will strengthen in this window whether it be rhodes or diawara or whoever!Celtic don't have Money? Funny guy, the club has virtually no debt and can fund significant transfers. The only problem is that they don't pay massive wages, Robbie Keane was getting £65,000+ per week and that was a rarity!Yes, i'll admit rangers' current financial situation isn't great, but they will still get more transfer money than any league 1 side and most championship sides as well as having better players and paying more wages.


30 Dec 2011 15:13:15
Rumours coming out of St.Mary's suggest that Southampton aren't interested in bringing either Sharp or Maynard to the South Coast.

Sordell, Emnes and Ebanks-Blake are their top 3 targets, with Jutkiewicz already a guaranteed signing.(19)(9)I'd still like Sharp, but I'd respect his decision no matter what after everything he's been through. Sordell would be good, and Emnes would do a job. Would he be a winger or a striker? Ebanks-Blake would work, until we reached the premiership. I want players who can make the step up.Considering how secretive Saints have been before about signings, I wouldnt be surprised to see any new players coming in from abroad.

Is there any promise of Southampton signing jutkawic fro coventry or. Is that all lies?(6)(12)Coventry need the moneyJukawitcz (Or however you spell it) is a Southampton fan so I can't imagine him passing the chance - watch this space...First of all it's Jutkiewicz, i would imagine there is a good chance but who knows, it is well publicised Saints are in the market for a striker and he is a striker. Lets be honest i know this is a rumour site (and a good one at that) but know one knows until either club announces something. Not to sure Coventry need the money or not, maybe a coventry fan can answer that.As a coventry fan, i can unfortunately confirm that we definately need the money. even if this money will be taken out by the owners and none be used to benefit the club. i think £2m would prob secure the deal, even if we should hold out for more. fingers crossed for the future of our club!Coventry definitely need the money.
A fee as relatively low as £1 million might be sufficient.If Southampton do in fact want Jutkiewicz and they agree to meet Coventry's valuation of £1.75m then he will be a Saints player. If not, then I'm almost certain he will end up at Middlesbrough.SSN report that we are back in for him and it's normally pretty solid from that source. Really don't think Cortese would seek to take advantage of Coventry's situation so unless they hold out for an unrealistic valuation then it looks probableOk so it looks like he is a maybe then, didn't realise coventry had money problems, Coventry are a club i like, seem to keep there buisness private. As a Saints fan and have had our own finacial troubles i wish you all the best and hope it all works out for you fans.Why arsenal do this 15 mil for chamberlin
saints can go on a spending spree

Arsenal, on the other hand, are rumored to be interested with a potential £11m price being floated around...Wolves will never ever be as big as villa and wolves are certainly not up and coming. Theres a major takeover deal brewing at villa which will put them right on the map again mark my words.Villa are now just a tiny little club get used to itVilla just a tiny club? We're the main founders of the EPL.. so if you don't like us .. go support Crawley!.
Fletcher would die to join Villa anyways but we don't want that overrated striker.
We can spend £24m on a striker alone .. Wolves would sell their club for that!
QIA will takeover soon, We'll soon be the finest on the planet like the good old days again!Fletch move to a smaller club ? I doubt it, everyone can see that villa are washed upWolves were part of the founding twelve too and if it weren't for their exploits in the 1950's the European cups as we know them might not exist. And if you threw £24 million at Wolves you might, might net yourself two of our best players, maybe with an extra reserve (something like Jarvis, Fletcher and Carl Ikeme. Not much else). Have fun with your club being as hated as Manchester City, if those takeover rumours are indeed true... Oh and by the way as close as Wolves are to the drop zone at the moment, Villa aren't far behind (four points above Wolves) and if they don't start scoring or make some bad transfers then we could see fortunes reverse real quick. Then we'll see who's the tiny club.Villa 3 Chelsea 1.. small club? lot of bull!

Wolves are lining up a raid on Leeds United for Snodgrass. The deal will see Keogh move to Elland Road permanently and Wolves bolstering the deal with cash. Other options being discussed include taking Ebanks-Blake or Hammell from Wolves either on a loan or permanent basis.

If Ebanks-Blake does not go to Leeds it is likely that either goal shy Nottingham Forrest or Middlesbrough will capture the out of favour striker.

The departure of Ebanks-Blake leaves the door open for McCarthy to snap up Kenwyn-Jones from Stoke for a fee in the region of £6.5m.(18)(19)He would fit the bill for boro cf strong and proven in the championship to score goalsInteresting , I know Leeds do not have the cash for Keogh's signature but Wolves really do not need another ? apparently Kight's is coming back from his successful spell at Watford.Sylvan leaving the club is to be expected he is a very good championship player but not premier league pedigree.True, but Kevin Doyle on his way to the Boggies to team up with Shane Long if they can unload Cox,Fortune, Jara and Dorrans.MM will definately sell.Wolves can't afford to buy snoddySnodgrass has had his appendix removed. He will not move this January. Sorry to disappoint you. Try again in the summer.

Alan pardew is checking out simon ferry of swindon town and team mate jonathan smith .(11)(9)Swindon will not sell any players they dont want to in Jan, it will take some serious bidding to get a player like Ferry or Smith, Caddis, Flint and Ritchie are all being tracked but will not be allowed to go !Why do Newcastle keep being linked with lower league players?This sounds right.Pards is shrewdly sniffing out all these type of players because they are all playing frequently and well.Ferry,Smith and Ritchie are all good enough and hungry so Pardew knows that these type of players are going to give 100%.There are loads of lower league players who don't behave like spoilt kids on £75,000 a week! Bring 'em in I say and good on Pards for keeping it real.

30 Dec 2011 08:40:04
Chris Powell has been given the funds necessary to move Charlton onto the next level, however he is reluctant to spend big during this window as he thinks his squad is good enough to go up this year.


William Keane (loan - until end of season)
Leon Cort (perm)
Kelly Youga (free)
Dean Parrett (perm)


Paul Benson (Perm)
Simon Francis (Perm)
Gery Doherty (Loan)
Bradley Pritchard (Loan)
Ruben Bover (Loan)

Already lined up for the summer - depending on promotion.


Sean McGinty (Season long loan)
John Bostock (Free)
Carlos Carmona Bonet (Perm)(8)(7)Swindon have agreed benson deal on a 2 year deal.IN
William Keane sounds good but would he drop down to Charlton (in the league and geographically) given that he is a northern lad and there would be plenty of clubs after him locally if he is the player everyone says he is. Very iffy that one.

Leon court is at Charlton already and is not likely to go back to his club (Burnley), Id say good call but, we all knew that anyway.

Kelly Youga is already at the club and in training would be a great asset but, will not feature at any level this season and will need to be on much less money than he was before. He would sign if given the chance though.

Dean Parrot would be a good addition and needs to get games and settle down at a club so maybe.

Paul Benson will go that is for sure.

Francis has already left.

Doherty (GARY) will not go before seasons end unless offered a coaching role. His influence in the dressing room is huge.

Bradley Pritchard will not be allowed to leave on loan unless there is a recall.

Ruben Bover, maybe but not until Youga is back and that will not be this season.

As for next season, lets see where we are first. lots of football to be played yet dont go thinking promotion is in the bag becase its not.


30 Dec 2011 08:18:00
The official SFC twitter page announced yesterday that they are not after Maynard or Sharp....Rumours are that SFC will be going for Sordall or j rod but our chairman has links to Italy and he could supprise everyone with a player from there....(11)(4)It wasnt on Official Saints Twitter page you numpty!

Andy Keogh from Wolves is willing to drop down the leagues in order to obtain first team football.

Chesterfield rumoured to be favourites to sign for a nominal fee.

Source: The majority Shareholder(10)(32)I heard Doncaster and Bristol City are lining him up as replacements for Billy Sharp and Premiership bound Maynard. Cant see him dropping to league one.Stupid not going to happenI have seen some stupid posts on here, but that has to be one of the best.
Chesterfield!! my local pub has more chance of getting him..


30 Dec 2011 02:03:13
Sam Vokes and Andy Keogh plus 2 million has been offered to Bristol city form star player nicky Maynard(0)(27)As a City fan I hope this is true. Both decent strikers at this level. They are also full internationals which suggest good pedigree. This would allow us to play 2 up front, and really threaten teams. Neither are prolific though, which could be a problem. The 2m could be reinvested in other positions. Yet I doubt this will happen, as far as I know Wolves aren't interested in Maynard and Vokes and Keogh are looking to sign permanently for Burnley and Leeds respectively.As a Wolves fan I can say that Vokes and Keogh are good enough for the Championship and would get your club goals and both have a very good work rate how ever apparently Leeds do not have the cash to buy Keogh who is estimated at 600k.Also is Maynard good enough for the premier league ?We dont want himWe had them both on loan at BS3 recently and neither looked upto championship standard. Altho Vokes was injured on his Debut so its unfair to judge him on that

Aston Villa are soon to be owned by
Qatari's (QIA)
Qatar Investment Authority.

There are a few websites that are
showing this rumour that is just
starting to surface.
To those who don't believe me,
search on google by typing - Qatar
takeover of aston villa.

Key points been mentioned are:

- story should start breaking
by late Feb - March 2012.
-Randy Lerner looking for around
130-150M for the club.

i love this point.

- this takeover will " make Man City
look like Derby ", so in other words
ASTON VILLA could become the
richest club in the world.

i know its only a rumour, but like i
said check out the websites.(19)(46)If this is the people who own PSG then by the laws of the game cannot own part of another club that could meet in competition, Europe, hate to burst your bubble villa fans but this will not and cannot happenThey should buy Newcastle because it will be easier because they have better players to start withScrew foreign ownership of football clubs. In my opinion it ruins the game. It's all about the money now.Tbf newcastle are punching well above their weight. It won't last !Correction if they owned 49% of Villa & Lerner sold the other 51% to seperate companies.
QIA would not own villa but have the majority share-holding meaning that is the loophole.Newcastle? they have worse players. You just started the season a bit lucky.Even if it were true, UEFA FFP means that they couldn't just throw money at the club, so I doubt that they'd 'make Man City look like Derby' whatever that means - unless they're not fussed about playing in EuropeThere is no loophole, it's a conflict of interest, this will not happenI hope villa get the mega bucks to help make birmingham as a city look more appealing!.

We know he a good player but thats taking it a bit far isn't.Would luv to believe this but just dont see it.only way it would happen is if the lure of playin for ur boyhood team is enough.once the bigger epl teams get involved then the hoops will get priced out of it.fingers crossed thoughNot a chance pal, £3 million up front no where near , start at 6 to 7 upfront then a no will come then bid more may take it to 10 million, then talks might take placeCant be true lee clark refusing to sell as we need him for our promotion chargeCheck the htafc website both clark and hoyle have both said no one is leaving even rhodes himself has come out saying hes happy where he is and isnt asking for a transfer.Good young player but not tried at higher level anything over 3mill big gambleIf Jordan Rhodes leaves he will go to the Premier League NOT the Mickey Mouse LeagueRangers beat Liverpool didn't they ... mickey mouse league maybe ... but rangers and celtic are no mickey mouse teamsTo big a gamble for 5m on a player thats only scored in league 1 in england, better talent for that money in better leagues max worth 2m/ish
willybhoyThe only reason your so called bigger league is bigger,...... is due to the fact that TV pour money into its coffers. once this dries up then you will revert back to the non entities you actually are. Never compare yourselves to the global brand that Celtic FC are!!Similar player to gary hooper and strikerate, who went for £2.4m to celtic a similar price would be suitable for Rhodes as hes untested outside league 1in England. £6-7m, £10m for a League 1 player have a word with yourself!

Tottenham rumour: Gus Poyet to replace Harry Redknapp as boss at WHL. Harry's health is dodgy, and Dan Levy wants to bring in a 'Spurs Man' to replace him.

Rafa Benitez is interested in a return to the Premiership, but Tottenham won't be asking Jose Mourinho as he is earmarked to replace Sir Alex at Old Trafford next season.

29 Dec 2011 18:10:36
Heard a rumour in Birmingham the other day that Tony Pulis is to leave Stoke in the summer, and will take up the Wales job.

This is because Peter Coates is talking to a new investor, and Pulis wants his future sorted now just in case a new investor wants to bring in his own manager.

Either way, Pulis is happy to accept any outcome - and would be a popular choice for the Wales job if chosen.(4)(32)

29 Dec 2011 17:46:00
Liverpool are looking to sign Ezequil Lavezzi and Lukas Podolski these two are winger/forward players similar to the likes of Dirk Kuyt,Craig Bellamy or even Maxi Rodriguez and I expect that Kuyt and or Maxi will make way if one or two of them come in. Bellamy only recently signed and although a very good signing he is 33 this year and is not a long term solution. Manchester City are just edging out Chelsea in the battle for a player who has been likened to Lionel Messi, Eden Hazard and while Liverpool had been linked the fee and the fact of no CL football make it seem highly unlikely they could sign him even with Joe Cole thrown into any deal. Arsenal will re-sign Thierry Henry on loan while Chelsea have beaten Tottenham to the £7.4m signing of Gary Cahill. Manchester United have been constantly linked with a January move for Wesley Sjneider but SAF has said they will not be making any moves in January.(13)(8)You been on caught offside again?

better standardDont know why u lot in england think your something special, Rangers are 1 of the biggest clubs in the world and if we played any Championship team we would destroy yous. Your top teams in the EPL have played us and struggled. Dont underestimate us, your teams are not that great just look at EuropeRangers are huge, massive, club IN SCOTLAND, thats like saying a ford ecsort is a super sports car, when racing go-karts, sorry my Scottish friend, he's off to LeedsRangers and celtic and both huge teams in European football! rangers reached the Europa league cup final 3 years ago as did celtic against porto a few years back! Both team give a good showing in europe every year! both teams have regularly beat english premier league teams! yes the championship has more viewers and is, as a whole, a better league, but no team in the championship even deserve to be on the same pitch as celtic or rangers.No1 really cares about the team more about the league if Rangers and Celtic were in the English divisons they get better players and they have some great ones who are good premier league standard like Naismith Jelavic McGregor Davis Goian Bocangea Wallace Papac Wylde Aluko LaffertyWhy the heck would he join at best a team that is top half championship when he could come to ibrox win a number of medals play infront of 50000 of the best supporters and play against some of europes elite teams in the champo league if hes inrested in winning medald more than 2000 extra a week rangers is the team to join most trophies won in world footballHe would be coming to a debt riddled outpost in the darkest corner of the empire

West brom won't cash in on Olsson, but there may be some truth to Odemwingie going only if the right money is offered and a replacement is lined up. Jeremy Peace will not accept any deal which doesn't best suit the club and £2mill plus a championship player at best for Olsson is a joke!Contracts mean nothing they are only there to make the selling club moneyGood old dingles ha ha ha

Even Heskey would be a better option!Ha ha ha is that it, Millwall looking good NOTGrabban was sold because of his poor attitude and the fact that jackett does not rate him as he was never a regular in the team. andrew is poor and how the bloke is still nicking a living at championship level is shocking. Millwall have already agreed deals to take tottenham youngsters harry kane and ryan mason on loan. its on the official website. kane is rated highly by redknapp at spurs so given a run of games in the millwall side should score goals given the amount of chances we create. jay simpson will not be signing after a row with jackett before the portsmouth game and was told to leave the stadium.

Oldham, Huddersfield and Bury are all looking to sign ex Bolton fullback Nicky Hunt. Hunt has been frozen out by successive managers at Championship Bristol City and the club are keen to remove him from the payroll. Hunt would be available at worst for a nominal fee but more likely a free transfer. The stumbling block would be his wage demands but there is rumour that Bristol may make a contribution towards them.(7)(4)

Andros Townsend - Leicester City
Billy Sharp - Leicester City
Luke Varney - Wigan
Josh Mceachran - Bolton (Loan)
Andrew Johnson - Blackburn(24)(34)Only 1 or 2 parts right in this.
Higuian will never join Chelsea.
Bent will not leave Villa unless Villa get a decent figure e.g £40mJordan Rhodes to West Ham, if onlyLee Clarke has made it clear today that Jordan Rhodes is not going to be sold in January-this is on the clubs websiteYeah they all say that but everyone has a price and Big Sam wants him !Thought Josh Mcachran was Swansea bound?

Can't see Varney to Wigan, as he only just moved to Pompie 6 months ago, so why would they sell up

Ipswich to sign Watford keeper Scott Loach for £1 million in January as well as a loan deal for Hugo Rodallega from Wigan. The big shock is that we are set to lose Bullard and Cresswell, the former interesting QPR and Leeds, the latter seen as a replacement for Leighton Baines at Everton. Jewell is also keeping tabs on Leicester striker Andy King and Portsmouth defender Ben Haim, although he's been told we need to sell before we can buy. These are deals in the pipeline, although we are more concerned with our defence and Jewell wants a new goalie and central defender as priorities.(10)(22)No way we would have Bullard nowWhere is the money for these deals going to come from?I know Hugo isn't our first choice striker at the moment, but lets be honest Wigan are not going to let him go on loan when we need to stay in the Premier League. We may sell for a bit of transfer cash, but loan, no.You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Firstly Andy King is a midfielder not a striker, and secondly Ipswich could not afford him!I don't understand why Rodallega would be allowed to leave on loan when his contracts up at the end of the season.

Also why Bullard would end up at either QPR or Leeds. (Leeds can't afford wages, and I can't see QPR taking a chance when they had a chance to sign him at the start of the season and diddn't want him)

Nicky Maynard isn't the only player Bristol City will listen to offers for as they seek to trim the wage bill and make room for McInnes to strengthen a unbalanced squad. Players such as Lee Johnson and Damien Stewart along with several other 1st team and fringe players could be exiting Ashton Gate. One player who isn't likely to be leaving unless a ridiculous offer comes in is Albert Adomah. with two and a half years left on his contract Chairman Colin Sexton knows Albert's value will increase. Albert is also going to be offered an improved contract to avoid a repeat of the Maynard situation so unless the clubs linked with him have more money than sense AA will still be a Robin in Feb.(12)(4)

Seems pretty believable imoEven your own goons will shoot you down for this one! 7.2m you muppet!

West Ham are reported to have submitted a £3million bid for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes.

The highly-rated 21-year-old is reported to have been the subject of a firm bid by West Ham and Sam Allardyce, who is said to have handed Chairman David Gold a list of 25 potential transfer window targets.

West Ham's initial bid is said to have been rejected, although the Hammers are hopeful that an improved offer in the region of £4million will be enough to land Rhodes.(17)(21)Its been rejected for a reason, he's going to Norwich deal done and dusted, Martin going the other way on season loanThere have been no bids made for Rhodes. Only 1 enquiry from Wesr Ham. And they were politely told to bugger off

As part of the upcoming firesale, Luke Varney is set to leave Portsmouth in January a fee of ~£1m being rumoured.

Leicester and Wigan current favourites to secure his signature, but other clubs are following with interest.(2)(22)Bet he cant wait to leave the mess down thereFire sale? Do they have enough players for it to be considered a fire sale..What fire sale? Varney won't be going anywhere. Ben Haim, maybe Kanu, Lawrence, Hreidersson and Kitson. That's who'll go in cut price deals to counter their high wages. Some loans and maybe cheap young players to come in to replace them. PUP, KEEP THE FAITH.Leicester? He`s not good enough for us! We dont want him!

Irish RedIm a hudds fan and if wickem is worth 10 mill+ then rhodes certainy is.Gary hooper similar age similar strikerate to Rhodes, £2.4m to celtic huddersfield will hold off till summer and get a decent fee once a bidding war stars but nowhere near £10m untested outside league 1 lol

when the bidding gets to £10 million plus then the talking starts.(5)(14)Deluded Huddesfield fans.It's got to be £10m for Rhodes...just look at the way he dispatched the mighty Chesterfield (bottom of League 1) with his mighty back heel after 3 attempts on goal. Prem teams must be in awe at his ability to dismiss teams like yeovil, Bury & Stevenage. BWP is banging them in for fun in League 1.....and you can have him for £1m if you want.West ham can sign all the players in the world as they have been doing, with there route one football and tactics they will never catch the mighty saintsIf rhodes is worth 10mill in league one. wonder how much holtys worth now?

Southampton want Surman, dream on,you can't afford the £10,mil(5)(20)No dought drew would love to come back ,but hes never worth more than 2.5 mMoney from oxlade-chamberlin?Errmm we can afford £10m, although he is not worth it, £4m at mostWe would not want surman an we can afford him muppet- liebherr family- look them up thats who own usI'd rather have Pilkington or Bennett than Surman back.£10M - don't be so bloody stupid but yeah it is dream on 'cos Saints don't want or need himLmao, norwich fans are jokes. Your all so bloody deluded. Surman isnt worth 10mil, yea hes good, but not that good. Also, we can easily afford that you numpty. Got more money than norwich and thats without prem money. So jog on. Tool.Firstly, Surman didn't want to leave Saints, I'm sure if we were to get promoted he'd love to come back, however, at the moment, we do not need him as we have more than capable players who play in his position. Secondly, Surman is never worth £10m, that is pure delusion. Thirdly, and I don't want to sound like some of the Saints fans on here who go on about our money, but if you do your research then you'd see that we probably could afford it. Not that we would want to pay £10m for him anyway.Yeah 10m we can't afford as liebher left us his money. He was only a billioner so no 10 million we can't afford !!

Not impossible, but I don't think Bayern would want to loose their (arguably) top player, and they don't need money..Haha. And what can Spurs offer him? No Europe? :) c'mon people

Everton are preparing a £4million bid for Southampton Rickie Lambert(20)(31)Yes, because we love paying silly amounts for unproven strikers.I think you forgot to put a 1 in front of the 4. Where do Everton find £4million from? Dream on ToffeesAnother deluded Saints fan there.
Dream on Toffees? Nightmare more like.Lambert is a Liverpool fan, can't see him signing for the blue half of Merseyside to be honest. His dad would disown him!He is no better than the young players we have already... we dont need him.He might ne unproven at that level but dont see how he is not better then any of the strikers you all ready have, i mean the highest goal scorers in your team has 3 goals and one of them is Baines. Dont care what you Everton fans say you would love him up front for you.I would take him because we dont have many strikers, but even now i doubt he'd get in over sahaThey havent got 4quidHe's not a deluded Saints fan. He's realistically aware of the club's ambitions and knows we could not realistically replace him at this time. I'm bored with listing the reasons why Saints won't sell any of their best players so educate yourselves you ignorant persons.Andy Carroll scored 17 Championship goals in a season. Lambert already has 15 before Christmas. So I think you'd have to pay a lot more than £4 million for him. Lambert is better than all your strikers. Let's face it Everton don't have any.15 million at least and everton can't afford 4 let alone 14!15million? haha wow um ok. all i read on here is saints fans glaoting about how rich they are. hope it doesnt represent the real fans down there..He is worth £5m max and Everton might have money after selling Artea for £10m Beckford for £3m Vaughan for £2.5m and Yakubu for about £2m or somethingHis value at present and how much money anyone has is irrelevant. Saints have a very ambitious chairman - fact. They are pushing for promotion - fact. They are short on strikers let alone fit ones - fact. Adkins has issued a hands off warning to Prem clubs - fact. Do your homework and you will quickly realise that this post is a waste of space.If im Ricky Lambert and a solid prem club says come here we'll double your wages and you can play against man utd etc every week i say yes please where the f... do i sign :)Southampton would except a bid of 10m or more from any club...

norwich city are looking at boros marvin emnes and bristol cities nicky maynard(23)(14)Im a bristol city fan and norwich are more than welcome to have nicky good look with him hes very lazy. 6mDo Bristol City fans really think they will get 6 million for a player that is out of contract in the summer, he is not exactly banging the goals in his he, if he were then yeh teams would probably pay good money for a striker in form but he is not. Be lucky to get 2 million at most. I am not even sure he will go to a prem side now, i reackon top 6 championship like West Ham or leicester, maybe even Boro, in my opinion he aint good enough to grace the Prem, not yet anyway.I think you're right no way any club will fork out £6M. Being a City fan I wish him all the best for the future, he's 25 now and if he's going to make a name for himself he'll need to do so soon. That said he's only really had 1 good season for us and his form isn't that great at the moment so whoever is willing to meet the clubs asking price (I think we'll want to recover our cost TBH) will be taking a gamble. As I said there is no bitterness on my part for him wanting to better himself and I wish him and his new club, whoever they are, good fortune.

James Hayter could return to Bournemouth in January after falling down the pecking order at Doncaster Rovers.
The 32-year-old has notched just two goals in the Championship this season - starting just eight times.
Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury has been given the green light to add to his squad in the January transfer window after Russian businessman Maxim Demin aquired 50 per cent of the League One club in November.
Since then, their playing budget has expanded and Hayter could be heading back to the club.
Isle-of-Wight-born Hayter was a fans' favourite at Dean Court and his experience could be just what the Cherries need as they look to push on for promotion to the Championship.(15)(1)

Saints reported to be interested in liam ridgewell and could go back in for liam fontaine in january to tighten up the defence,also they've been looking at grant mccan of peterbrough who has scored 8 goals from midfield this seasons in the league alone but he is 31.Also they've been linked with a host of strikers including nicky maynard who hasnt been on goalscoring form,jamie procotr and exciting young talent,billy sharp would be a good buy but would struggle to get him against sides like fulham,also lukas jukewictz which would alson be a could buy because he has scored 8 goals so far this seasons for coventry who are bottom of the table(16)(10)Reported where? Personally, wasn't impressed with Ridgewell against Saints or Leicester. He would not expect to sit on the subs bench so who would you drop? I know he's left sided but we've just signed Hoieveld and don't need cover at left back. Fontaine is injured, again, so presumably would fail a medical, again. I think McCann is ex-Scunthorpe hence the link with Adkins but not sure we need another central midfielder and age does not fit expected profile. To misquote an ex-Fontaine manager 'I'll show my bum in Burtons if we don't buy another striker' but who it will be only Adkins and Cortese have any clue.

Warnock has only said that his name was mentioned during a conversation with another manager (Stuart McCall a friend of his) which was probably one of many names mentioned.(11)(4)Don't know why people are finding this unbelieveable this is Ally said! I have not said that QPR have made a bid, far from it!

Pardrew has agreed a deal to take Sunderland defender Matt Kilgallon in Janruary. He also wanted Williams from Middlesboro but he wants to stay and try to achieve promotion at the Boro.(5)(24)The guy aint good enough to play at
premiership level just coped with championshipHe can do much better than him. I read he was in for Jan Vertonghen from Ajax, and Williams isn't likely. This is just someone trying to stir things between the three North-East clubs.

Wolves' goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is big money target for Spurs, Harry redknapp sees him as ideal replacment for Friedel whos getting on a bit now to say the least.. {Ed002's Note - Carlos Kameni is an option for Spurs.}(12)(17)But Spurs have only just signed Friedel!Thats wrong coz I've heard they after tim KrulFriedel has at least another year left?

bristol city:) any transfer news in or out,(1)(15)


29 Dec 2011 08:08:53
Championship-bound players from fire-sale club Hearts in January will be Templeton (winger), Driver (winger), Kello (keeper), Stevenson (attacking cmf), Sutton (target man).

The only other notable talent is Eggert Johnnson who has already signed for Wolves.

Not a rumour really - just guess work - but I'd imagine clubs to be looking at these players to be Bristol City, Middlesbrough, Burnley, Hull City, Coventry City and maybe Leeds Utd.

Hearts will promote talented youngsters from U-19s, and if any of them look like they can pass a ball 20 yards, they'll be sold in the Summer.(15)(4)


29 Dec 2011 05:06:00
Hey ed (eds) what do you think are celtics chances (realistically) of signing jordan rhodes?

29 Dec 2011 02:29:38
Any idea if there's any interest in Michael Jacobs from Northampton? He's one hell of a player and should be playing in League 1 at least.(3)(8)Yeah pal barnsley supposed to be looking at himHeard that Coventry looking to swap Eastwood for him.

On the eve of Thierry Henrys return to Arsenal there are rumours circling that another ex top 4 club player is going to return to his old club.

With injuries in Manchester Uniteds midfield and defence Alex Ferguson has reportedly been in contact with David Moyes about Phil Neville. Ferguson had hoped to sign Jack Rodwell but after being quoted 20 million plus his interest wained. Largely due to the fact United are definitely going to sign Sneijder for a large fee and pay him bucket loads. Neville would be cheap and can play in midfield and defence and has experience of playing on successful title winning teams on title run Ins in the past.

Moyes was looking at Kayal for this reason but he looks to have got a bad injury so who knows how this will play out(9)(32)Everton cant afford kayal



29 Dec 2011 01:38:13
As well as either Billy Sharp or Nicky Maynard, Southampton want Joe Lewis, Jacob Butterfield, Matty Phillips, Andrew Surman and a centre back(21)(32)


29 Dec 2011 01:31:58
Southampton Transfer Rumours:
•Matt Phillips - Blackpool - £500k + Jason Puncheon
•Billy Sharp - Doncaster Rovers - £3.25million
•Interest in Andrew Surman - Norwich

•Jonathon Forte - Walsall - £20k
•Jason Puncheon - Blackpool - exchange

In the summer Southampton will look to sign Joe Lewis from Peterborough and Ryan Dickson will leave in the summer as young Luke Shaw will be coming through.(23)(21)Liking the bullet points, very proffesional. I'd take that for January, with more players, possibly Clyne, Butterfield, depending on who else goes up.If this, or most of this happens it would be brilliant,hope you really are in the know
and not just a very naughty boy on a wind up,anyway,Happy New Year to all Saints fans.Seems Puncheon is working on a loan move to Crystal Palace so he can stay in the swop for Matt Phillips (who cost Blackpool £800k...and is well worth £1m+ now) may be a little premature for Saints fans to add to their wish listsPhillips only cost 350k because Blackpool failed to stay in the PL.So a young player bought for £350k with a proven goal scoring record in League 1 & now the Championship is now worth £500k.....if you were Huddersfield fans you would be asking £5m for him.Puncheon on his way back to millwall after enjoying his spell there last seasonMatt philips going nowhere let alone a champ. rival

Wigan to sign fryers on loan man u
adomah from bristol city
and rhodes from huddersfield
sellin sammon and rodallega so martinez has funds available(5)(27)How much do you think Bristol City would ask for Adomah, bearing in mind he's contracted to 2013/4 and given they turned down substantial sums for Maynard who had 12 months left. If Wigan want Albert they'll have to pay way over the odds for him in this window and I expect it would take an offer in excess of the reputed £6M Leicester offered for Maynard for them to even answer the phone.Zeki is my cousin and he's been told he's not going to be going out on loan at the present time due to man united's defensive problems


29 Dec 2011 01:09:23
A good source at parkhead has informed me that David Moyes was at parkhead tonight to watch Celtics Beram Kayal and Adam Matthews along with Rangers hitman Jelavic. He will raise the money by selling Jack Rodwell in January.(19)(8)Celtic have a right back coming in from Sweden on a Bosman in January. I have heard that the Mathews deal to Everton is almost in the bag.A good sauce told you he was at Parkhead?

Bognor Regis marksman Jason Prior was in line for a £12,000 move to the Silverlake Stadium after his final game for the Ryman South club on New Year's Day.

But in a dramatic twist it was revealed earlier tonight that Premiership Newcastle have invited Prior to St James' Park to train with them.

Prior currently plays two levels below Blue Square South Eastleigh and SEVEN rungs below the Premiership.

Jason has an impressive record of nearly 100 goals in just over 120 games.(4)(13)Brentford lking at himGood luck to him - a great striker and deserves his chance. Swindon were after him at the start of the season.

Would love to see Ross Allen (Guernsey) in the Prem/Championship.Loads of top players like barnes and stuart pearce came from the lower leagues - a proper fairytale.... good luck to the lad


28 Dec 2011 23:04:40
Doncaster Rovers going to use some of the money from the Billy Sharp sell to recruit Jacob Butterfield from near neighbours Barnsley for a record £1.75m(8)(25)He may as well stay at Barnsly then. Not really an improvement going to Doncaster.Wish this was true but can't see it happening tbhHe has a 9k a week contract on the table at Oakwell just waiting to see if he accepts, unless someone bigger than Donny come in for him I can't see him leaving the Super RedsHe wants to plat in the prem not league 1


28 Dec 2011 23:03:32
Ozil in talks with Chelsea over a signing that will happen in January.He has been subed in mostly every game he has started. The out of favour midfielder was signed by Real Madrid after showing lots of skill and talent in the 2010 World Cup the young player will cost between 25 to 30 million pounds. This deal will be made very early in January so Chelsea can sign other long term targets Cavani or Pato.(20)(41)

The Saints will sign jay rod from Burnley 5.5m and kebe from reading 1.8m this is a fact watch this space(23)(34)Jay Rod turned you down himself in august and will do the same again with the clarets the form team in the league and 3 points off the play-offs ... if he leaves it will be for a premiership club and for a fee of 7m+ .. 12 goals already this season 5.5 is laughable !I rate Burnley but 'form team in the league'? Don't you mean the most inconsistentLets see at the end of season,bfc will be there,young squad,5 stikers to choose from!longside daveHow predictably boring. Is there anyone on this planet saints are not signing??


28 Dec 2011 22:33:05

Marcus Hahnemann to Watford as he is not getting enough playing time at Everton.(22)(10)Im a long time watford fan and dont get me wrong loach is good but to many cock up, hahnemann would be great because of the experience he has and how much talent he has between the sticksThat would be a great signing and it means we can sell loach and get some cash to re-sign tommy smith- rumour by the way


28 Dec 2011 18:36:36
Heard a story that Barnsley's Jacob Butterfield is set to leave on a £1.6 million deal, to earn some cash for the club. Burnley, Forest and Cardiff are the teams lining a bid.

Also, forgotten man Giovani Dos Santos is wanted by PSG, but wants a return to Spain, with Valencia and Espanyol looking to snap him up for a cut-price deal.(9)(21)Why would Butterfield sign for any of those
clubs when prem clubs are interested


28 Dec 2011 18:45:26

28 Dec 2011 18:14:15
Fulham are interested in PSG Striker Guillaume Hoarau. He was injured earlier this season so this season form is not much to measure against. Usually 1 in 3 goals per game ratio in Ligue 1. Reported in French press.(12)(7)

to all the doubters out there, billy sharpy and nicky maynard are signing for the mighty gers on 1st jan- OFFICIAL(4)(46)Billy Sharpy?!?
Is he a marker pen?How are you hoping to pay for them? With fresh air? Coal? Goodwill? Dream on pal, you couldn't afford a picture of them let alone to buy them!!Why would they drop 3 levels in standard of football?It is a premier league - sort of. Obviously Maynard aint fussy -thats why he has been dragging it out this long - waiting for this dream move! Ha Ha. Nice oneMaynard is signing to norwichDoubt it very much that wud be a step downScottish football fans do have wicked sense of humour, even they know that players of the calibre will not join such a league where the standard of football is 2nd/3rd division at best.i think the young man has been sniffing the barmaids apron again....No championship club is better than rangers or celticDisagree - Southampton/West Ham would bury them both! Scottish football is nothing short of shocking i am afraid and that is a fact and i admire your loyalty to your country but you're flooging a dead horse.

Jason Puncheon, DJ Campbell and Jordan Rhodes linked with January moves to Bloomfield Road.(7)(34)Give it a rest, jordan rhodes to blackpool,
where are blackpool going to get 9 million fromFor £9m any team paying Huddersfield that would want J Rhodes, the rest of the Hudderfield team, the ground, the team bus and £7m in change. It's only League 1 lad, it's not that hard to look good against journey men. And blackpool have £60m in the bank after £50m from the prem and £12m from transfers, so your talking about the richest club in the ChampionshipAnd huddersfield are one of the richest teams in league 1, so stick ya money where the sun dont shine. go buy ya self afew sticks of rock to suck onJordon Rhodes is not going to sign for Blackpool assuming they could afford his fee simply because they will not pay wages to attract player of this calibrePuncheon and campbell are maybes but they dont need an over inflated player from div 1 and yes they wouldnt pay wages he would want.


28 Dec 2011 17:07:46
Manchester City have accepted a loan deal from Spartak Nalchik in Russia for defender Stefan Savic. City boss Roberto Mancini is keen on loaning out the Montenegro centre half and sees a loan move to the Russian outfit as something that will benfit Savic and both clubs.(14)(15)

New Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill, is expected to head a mini clearout, mainly consisting of a few loan deals for youngsters and a few fringe players leaving permanently.
Asamoah Gyan will not leave in the summer but is expected to leave in January once his loan spell with Al Ain is up. Sunderland will make him available for around £10 million and have already had a bid from Saudi champions Al Hilal.
Tottenham have made an enquiry for striker Frazier Campbell, after O'Neill revealed the former Manchester United striker to be match fit.
Leeds United have had a £900,000 bid accepted for defender Matt Kilgallon.
Peterborough United have had a loan bid accepted for David Meyler with a view to a £1.2 million deal in the summer.
Another young midfielder set to leave to James McClean. McClean only joined in the summer and is keen to stay at The Stadium of Light. The former Northern Ireland under 21 player has been subject of a one year loan to Irish side Portadown.
20 year old striker Ryan Noble, is another set to leave on loan and will join Ipswich until the end of the season.(9)(27)Ok just so ive got this, Sunderland paid around 13 mil for Asamoah Gyan, they then loan him out for a reported 6 million pound fee, he then scores a truck load of goals whilst on loan and then as far as you are concerned Sunderland will sell him for 3 millon less than what they paid for him....Yea sureTottenham have made an enquiry about Campbell? never in a million yearsUncle Ken to shell out 900k on a player? You need to stop taking acid, it's frying your mind.LOLMcclean going? campbell going? no chance, typical geordie too much broon ale and talking utter rubbish, mcclean and campbell will figure in Martin O'neills plans for years to come, Gyan has scored 11 goals in 10 games for al ain so think we will be looking at more 20m for him, ryan noble will go out on loan but he will not be sold as he is def one for the future, here is one for you Krul to Tottenham, Colocini to arsenal/liverpool, Cabaye to Man Utd, Tiote to Chelsea and Ba to either Liverpool/Arsenal all to be done within the next year. unlucky SGBMore likely than them getting gabby agbonlahor haha!Oh yeah, We'll let Meyler go for that price....pfft.

Another goalkeeper set to leave is Hilario. The Portuguese stopper is keen on a move away from London after only playing two league matches in the last two seasons. Benfica are leading the chase at the moment as the Portugal international wants a move back to his homeland.(9)(23)Bertrand to man city for 5 mil?

28 Dec 2011 16:22:55
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp, is expected to sell a number of players in January in order to raise funds for players.
Manchester City have offered Spurs around £12 million for Tom Huddlestone.
Once Michael Dawson gets fit, Redknapp is keen to loan him out until the summer after telling the England international he wants him 100 per cent fit in the summer and with the competition in defensive areas, it could be difficult for him to get some football, coming back from a serious injury. After learning this news. Chelsea could make a permanent deal of around £22 million for the defender.
Croatia international defender Vedran Corluka is subject of a loan bid from his native Dinamo Zagreb. The Croatian capital club are keen to tie down the defender in the summer permanently and could join for around £3.5 million.
South African Steven Pienaar is set to be offloaded after a fairly unsuccessful spell in North London and is subject of a loan bid from his native Mamelodi Sundowns until the summer. Pienaar is keen on a move to South Africa until the summer but is wanting to stay in Europe long term.(6)(33)22 million for Dawson?? Yeah mate and 50 mil for heskey....... Behave sonEvery one of these rumours are totally wrong!Tom Huddlestone - 12Mill?! He's almost permanantly injured -2Mill at mostThe worst and most isnane rumour ive ever read...what next Defoe back to Portsmouth on loan with a view to a permanent deal...This is all nonsense, Harry has already earmarked Dawson for the FA Cup game and wants him for the rest of the season. Hudd is still struggling to get over his ankle injury and won't be fit till Feb at the earliest but is another vital player for the second half of the season and Harry has no desire to sell such a quality player never mind for £12 mill. As for Charlie he's off to RomaPienaar as to be one of the most over rated footballers ever,Everton must have laughed all the way to the bank after they unloaded this waste of space!

I've heard rumours abound from Aston Villa of quite a bit of involvement in January.
There is to be a straight swap with Fulham over Damien Duff and Stephen Ireland. And Villa are doing their utmost to bring Nico Kranjcar to Villa Park. Additionally there are enquiries into the possible 6 month loan of Darren Gibson from Manchester United. The performance against Stoke has caused McCleish to feel that the shake-up is necessary.(3)(24)

Aston Villa look set to test Montpelliers resolve with a £9million bid for playmaker Younes Belhanda(8)(23)Villa aint got 9 millionYou said we didn't have £24m for Bent mate, you guessed wrong .. we do!We have money for transfers but our problem lies with our high wage bill. If we can shift a couple of high earners (Heskey/Ireland) then we may well spend 9mil on a playmaker.

Sunderland to sign Gabby Agbonlahor and attempt to recall Asamoah Gyan(23)(59)For the last time Agbonlahor is a Villa fan and has said numerous times that he Will end his career at villa also he's in your first team and probably our best player so stop making rubbish rumours up pleaseHeard the same, villa need money and it was o'neill who gave him his chance, when bent gets sold to liverpool he might comeHeard both are in the process of happening also from sources at the academy.Bid will go in for Gabby.Little chance of Gyan coming back-no release return clause in his season long loan dealGabby has been our best player by far this season and looks a completely different player. No way would he take a backward step to S'Land. Also, he is a Brummie and a massive Villa fan!

Doncaster Rovers star striker Billy Sharp is on his way to west ham in janurary for an undisclosed fee {Ed001's Note - I very much doubt he would move to a club outside the Prem.}(8)(15)Leicester City are making a £3m bid according to the local paper. Sharp has a £3m clause and is being allowed to speak to any interested parties. It's being stressed that any move is his decision. Doubt he'll sign for Leicester, he knocked back Southampton in the Summer and Wigan are meant to be interested in picking him up. Anyone claiming he's already agreed a deal is lying, simple as that.

27 Dec 2011 14:09:25
as a sheffield united fan i'm gutted to say that Ched Evans will be joining Brighton in early january for around £1.7million. Aparantly we will be signing some norwegian striker on loan called agestien untill the end of the season. Will be really bad to lose Ched but any Brighton fans want to tell me what this norwegian lads like?

COYB!(13)(20)You can keep him at sufcI'll say it once again. No one is going to sign Ched Evans in January with a court case looming. Even if this was true there's no way he'd want to go to brighton

Southampton will offer £500k plus Jason Puncheon for Matty Phillips of Blackpool.

The winger, who netted a hatrick yesterday, was previously wanted by Saints and now Saints hope to lure him to the South Coast and off load Jason Puncheon at the same time.(21)(10)Blackpool dont need to sell. Phillips is by far the better player.
Puncheon could still end up at Blackpool or Millwall on loan

I don't see why these clubs so say want Nicky Maynard, I'm a city fan but he hasn't really proven himself since being injured he had a little flurry of goals late last season and has only managed 5 this season although Lambert at rovers managed 20 or so in rovers team that went down.....personally I don't feel Maynard is of Prem quality when you look at strikers like Odemwingie and Stephen Fletcher(22)(2)Ditto, Maynard was flying before the spotlight turned on him and all of a sudden he's a shadow of his former self, that says it all for me, small time player for a small time club. Big clubs won't touch him, he's lost his bottle


27 Dec 2011 11:57:56

jordan rhodes will sign for norwich in jan(18)(57)Been reading so many posts about rhodes. its obvious link to norwich as he had trial with us as a youngster (we turned him down) oops! but cmon hudd fans, every player has a price and if an offer from prem comes in, and he wants to go hes gone! its how it works these days. personally think hes way too much of a gamble and isnt ready with the price tag yet. someone his age needs a pre season to bed in so think he will stay put. and for the record i really dont get how Hudd fans think a league 1 striker is¥worth more than 2-3mill plus add ons. and even then that is expensive! morrison cost ncfc 2mill from champ. too much xmas wine up north me thinksFor the record u norwich numpty, 2,3,4 or 5 mill, keep it & we'll keep our player. also its u soft southern monkeys that sip ya glass's of wine ya plankAgain, I reiterate, he's going nowhere (unless someone coughs up 10m that is.....)I'm not sure if you know where Norwich is, but its on the east of england not the south. Its comments like that, that make you sound like a person which seems correct given your valuation of Rhodes

26 Dec 2011 20:54:06
Educated Guesses at Lambert's wish list (Educated Norwich fan) Feel free to agree and/or Disagree

Maynard - Target due to recent circumstances, face competition
Naughton - It's all up to Harry whether he could join on a permanent move, and how highly he may rate him
Jordan Rhodes - Strong competition from premier league teams, however with Norwich's start and our good relationship with Hudds, but it'd take a big old bid since he's the prospect for their promotion hopes
Snodgrass - I think it's possible, don't think Leeds can turn down a 5m+ bid, just whether the Norwich board will push the boat out to table such a bid. Before Leeds fans jump on this, you can't realistically expect teams to ever table the inflated prices that you somehow conjure (my opinion!)
Lallana - Strongly suggested by others, personally, probably not a likely switch, but hey, feel free to make me eat my words.

Wilbraham - One can only hope anyway...
C.Martin - I'd be sad to see the lad leave truth be told, but perhaps a decent bid from a Championship side Eagles or not, may do the trick.

As a footnote: I WANT PACHECO :((9)(19)
