Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

To the guy that said west ham will be sold too a african mining magnate.ive been hearing the same vibes i don't think your far off the mark.the dic thing is not dead in the water yet though will be interesting come on you irons!!!!!!
in :
Villa 20m
arshavin 15m
barry or alonso 14m

  A player who has 6 months left on his contract moving for 13m– that would be a world first, anyway alonso happy at liverpool and not contemplating moving, the barry deal is very much a thing of the past, but pennant to go to a mid table club for about 3–4m
  I clean the windows at Anfield and im a very keen fan!
Rumours have it after speaking to a certain someone in the car park are as follows:


Robbie Keane–10m+lennon(JAN)
Dirk Kuyt–8m Sevilla
Fabio Aurellio–3.5m Aston Villa(favour for A.Young deal)
Itandje–1m Lens
Voronin–2.75m Hertha Berlin
Benayoun swap Elano+cash deal
Pennant–3m–Sunderland(1st refusal on Craig Gordan)

Michael Owen 3m
Adriano Luis(shakhtar) 9m
Gareth bale TBC deal
Ashley young 20m(funny hand shake deal)
Kakhaber Kaladze 5m
also Micha Richards in summer for 30m deal and a striker being David Villa or Lionel Messi.

RONSEAL knows best!
  The latest coming out of the paradise/Anfield Road network is a major loan swap.

McGeady to Liverpool/Keane to Celtic until the end of the season.McGeady will bolster liverpools premiership challenge allowing Torres to concentrate on Europe. While Keane gets to pull on his beloved hoops and win 3 medals in 5 months. – celticlaird
  If West Ham stay up Zola will stay and will be heavily backed by our new owners who can't be named and expect Gus Poyet to join the backroom staff. The targets will be:
Giampaolo Pazzini
Pablo Osvaldo
Sebastian Giovinco
Marek Hamsik
Herita Ilunga
Riccardo Montolivo
Michael Kightly
Branislav Ivanovic
Djibril Cisse
Outs: Ashton, Neill, LBM, Bellamy, Noble, Dyer, Davenport, Etherington, Bowyer, Faubert, Gabbidon, Mullins, Quashie and the rest of the deadwood.
And if we get relegated or if zola quits we will make Steve Clarke our new manager!
  To the person who wrote west ham to be south african owned. I too have heard the same rumour, i also read the same rumour some time back on these pages so it could be a gooden. also heard my team spurs will be bidding for upson and bellamy for a combined 13m. zola is dead set on getting pazzini from fiorentina so needs to sell.
  LFC Rumours

On the 25th of January, RBS and another bank will reposes Liverpool as the owners cannot afford the loan repayments, so if you believe the rumours Kun Aguero, Owen, Bale and maybe even Barry could sign.

Personally i feel that the Barry deal better not happebecause in the summer he asked MON to play in a european game so for we shouldn't buy him also Xabi, Masch and Stevie G are better players.
Also Owen is not needed because Rafa plays 4–2–3–1 and torres is mch better so their would b no point in buying him also he left for 'better' things so he clearly as no loyalty towards LFC.
And with Gareth Bale i feel hes a fantastic player but Rafa really likes Fabio Aureio.
With Kun Aguero, he will play for Liverpool one day and if the rumour about him having spoke to Liverpool since the summeris true then if we get hm in january he WILL help us win the league

This is onl my personal feeling about the transfers but fingers crossed we get repossesed by the RBS and then D.I.C. can come in for a cheaper price and spend more on Liverpool.

LFC Rumours
  Celtic will sell mcgeady for 8–11million to either bayern munich or liverpool. We'll be hutszi fae hannover 96 for 3.5 million. mcginn,misun all ready sealed. Zaluska will sign in summer for free or in jan for 200,000. For bellamy and arshavin, yees are worse than boruc btw, wages at at least 80,000 and 60,000 and 22million for arshavin. yess are aff your rockers.
They ( rangers )will sell a few and sign tonel 2.5million.

4 in a row 6 more to go.

  Some one wrote that driver is 95% certin to celtic well that is rubbish driver is in the procces of signing for rangers.
some one also said that bellamy will move to celtic. he has publicly said that he loves celtic but will not be going back til the end of his carears.
According to setanta Man City have made a 9mil bid for santa cruze.
Bera may sign for rangers for around 2mil.
  I have it on good authority that senior Hearts players will only recive there win bonuses when they are sold on in the january window.
  Liverpool FC

Kuba (7mil) This signing will be made so that he is ready for next season's campaign. He would provide width and can also operate as a wing back if needed.

Miroslav Klose (9mil) Munich want to sign Mario Gomez and so will let Klose Leave. Benitez feels he can cover if Torres is unfit, and he would also bring the best out of Robbie Keane.

Voronin, Itjande, Pennant and Leto are all up for sale. Realistically Rafa hopes to make 7–8mil for all of them.

Benayoun won't be sold in January but probably in the summer. Keane, Agger, Babel and even Dossena are going nowhere.

Summer targets include one of Ribery, Lennon or
Maxi Rodriguez.

2 players who will surprisingly be up for sale at the END of the season are Kuyt and Alonso. Benitez feels he can make good money for both and will sell if a good offer comes in. Alonso could go for 18mil and Kuyt for 15mil. Barry is still a target and as he has 1 year left on his contract he could leave for around 10mil.
   Arsenal news

This are deals that have all been lined up for the whole jan sale by Wenger and team.

  "Newcastle will look to sign Tttenham's out of favour attacking midfielder Giovanni Dos Santos. He is desperate for much needed first team football so Newcastle will swoop for the Mexican in a swap involving Owen + 5M. Kinnear has contacted Spurs about the possible transfer and is expected to be completed by a week on Sunday!!! 110% TRUE!!!"

I would like to stress that Giovani has not fallen 'out of favour', he's had ankle surgery as he is INJURED. Harry Redknapp has said on many occasions he is looking forward to working with him. Thank you.
  Hearts Fc
Have heard from a very reliable source at the Dundee Utd game that Hearts in the coming days will announce 3 incoming transfer deals. Robbie Neilson will pen a new 3 year deal, Chris Porter will sign in January and Margaro Gomis will sign on a pre contract agreement.Aguiar and Karipidis will see out there deals before leaving at the end of the season.
The rest of January will see players leaving most notably Larry Kingston who is in discussions with 3 "seriously interested clubs"
  The little ned aidan mcgeedy will sign for villa.
ashley young will sign for real madrid, if not in January in the summer.

rangers will sign lovenkrands and tonel on precontracts. berra will come in for weir for about 1.5 million.

im telling you– just watch out ;)
  New blackburn boss will raid his old clubs as he looks to strenghten his blackburn side he will sign ricardo gardner, jussi jaaskelainen, kevin nolan and kevin davies for a combined fee of 12mil from newcastle he will sign damien duff and geremi for a combined fee of 6mil. as santa cruz is hinting he wants to leave allardyce will let him go for either 20mil or 12mil plus brazillian forward jo. allardyce will aslo sign hamburgs forward olic as he thinks of him as a physical presence in the 18yard box and will pay 10mil for his signature.
  As with most seasons these days, all eyes should be on the Championship this January, which is where the majority of signings will be made. However, most of these will be loans, with the impending credit crunch. Still, better than that waste of space they call the Premiership eh?

Barnsley: Loanees? They have a few, but expect some to be hanging around for rather longer, with Davey expected to invite Jamie Cureton and Simon Whaley to sign permanantly. The emphasis on attacking players is said to also include Peterborough hitman Aaron Mclean and Chesterfield dynamo Jamie Ward. If this is true, Davey Crockett's christmas present is likely to be a transfer kitty of more than 3mil. With the Tykes upping the ante, sacrifices must be made, and these will sadly include striker Kajode Odejayi, who is surplus. Expect someone playing Chelsea to snap him up, and then let him wander.
Birmingham: Loanees? I think I might've said this one, but Smart Alec will snap up loanees Quincy and Nigel Quashie with his allocated transfer kitty. Whether or not Goldie will allow further expenditure is unclear, as per usual.
Burnley: Talent? Boss Owen Coyle will have to deal with annoying calls concerning the availability of Chris Eagles and Martin Paterson. This follows their good recent form. Football teams can be very hypocritical; no–one wanted Paterson or Eagles at their former sides, but all of a sudden, OMG!, they can play, well noticed. .
Crystal Palace: Shefki Kuqi? The increasingly stubborn Neil Warnock still seems to be insisting that the in–form Fin will leave in January, even if he is willing to take a pay–cut. Ah well, at least he's a manager who knows what he wants. He might regret it once Arsenal make a bid to snatch Victor Moses though.
Derby: Anything? After their sudden and not–at–all significant revival (has anyone noticed, succesive relegations suddenly seem less likely!), expect Paul Jewell to push the boat out. He will sign nobody. See, football teaches us something new every day.
Doncaster: Signings? A frustrated Sean O'Driscoll must surely bring in bodies to halt the apparent free–fall, despite the effort being exerted. Steve Brooker looks likely to secure a deal, and he could be the man to solve the scoring problems at the Keepmoat. Also, I expect bids for West Brom's Shelton Martis and Leeds' David Prutton.
Ipswich: Options? Jim Magilton spent quite a bit in the summer, so I cant say how much he'll be given to spend now to end his sides poor start. Goals havent really been the problem, but the only players I can see going to Town are Jonathan Stead and Angelos Charisteas.
Norwich: Strikers? With Lanky Cureton and Lee–way Lita (sorry) on their way off, Norwich's goals are clearly going to have to come from Santa, and I don't mean the Cruz variety either. I hope Roeder's written a long list too, or The Canaries might have a relegation scrap. Bids for Steve Howard and Liam Dickinson.
Notts Forest: Signings? I know Dan the Main Man isnt going to like this, so ill be brief. Maybe Carl Fletcher.
Preston: Loans? Preston have some impressive players on loan, and Wayne Brown's permanant move from Hull will be completed on January the 5th, at precisely 12:46 pm. Thats what I call a rumour! Sadly though, Ross Wallace will move back to Sunderland. As a replacement, Irvine will move for Charlton's Kelly Youga.
Queens Park Rangers: Splashing? Sousa will move for Helgusson permanantly, as well as Kiko Minambrés, Jordí Gomez and Chris Eagles, although i doubt he will get the latter. Leaving will be Akos Buzsaky, Kaspars Gorkss and Zesh Rehmann.

I expect there will be other movers and shakers, but i don't want to bore the legions of Premier League fans, so ill leave it for 2008. A happy christmas and a merry new year, from Malcolm Shaffer, 29, Kensington Rumour Control Squad
  Speculation has been mounting in Italy that Arsenal will sign Alexandre Pato of Milan in January for 10 mil + Senderos permenently. Senderos has already publically announced that he is '' loving life in Milan'', and Pato is said to be frustrated at the fact that Milan are not playing champions league and he is also a huge admirer of Wenger and his policy.
  Everton is going to have a big january with a few peopel leavign the club and few coming in. David Moyes is keen to add some strength to his bairthen squad and really push to get into the top 4 this year.

Everton ins:
Moutinoho from sporting lisbon (12 million)
gary neville form Manchster united (6 million)
Mark Bresciano from palermo (10 million) to replace Cahill

Everton outs:
Cahill to Sevilla (12 million)
Baines to Newcastle (6 million)
Valente to FC Porto (2 million)

Now you may all be thinking that it is silly to think that Everton will let Tiny Tim Chill leave but Sevilla are apparrently interested in Cahill and his attacking ability and see him as a pontential starter or second half super sub adn moyes now has feelaini and is going to ship in fellow australian mark bresciano cahill won't be missed to much by everton.
  To the fool that said Cahill is leaving everton in january you dotn know what you are tlaking about. Cahill is going to be loaned out to Villa Real not bought by sevilla. Villa Real is going to see how Timmmy adapts in the la liga and might by him at the end of the loan.
  All the talk about Liverpool and Celtic doing a loan swap deal could be true but it defo won't be keane. .reserve striker Kristian Nemeth will be heading to glasgow for the 2nd half of the season to gain some first team experience with Aiden McGeady going the other way.,
The Stevie and Carra affect has worked and Rafa is now firmly interested in Owen who has struck a deal with newcastle that he can leave in january so he won't walk in the summer.,No big money signings in the window but expect a few fringe players to go (Itandje, Dossena, Pennant, Voronin, Benayoun) all to fund the Aguero deal (which is almost complete) in the summer, Benayoun could be involved in the deal with Maxi Rodriguez looking likely to go to eastlands and reform his partnership with martin petrov. West Brom are looking at Damien Plessis and possibly Jay Spearing on loan., "D"
  Other news from Anfield;

"The agent of Sao Paolo's 19 year old defender Aislan says he expects Liverpool to make an offer for him when the transfer window opens also", "Liverpool have been offered the chance to sign 19–year–old Brazilian wonder kid Keirrison",

Genuine quotes not rumours. We've been hearing that Rafael Benitez has two South Americans kids lined up for a while now, Could it be these two.,???



  To the person who said that Arsenal will get Chiellini from Juve for Gallas+5M£. Are you absolutely insane. Chiellini is one of the best young centrebacks in football and the next Juve captain. Why the hell they would send him to London for a nobody like Gallas. It's not like they need the money! Get a grip!
  Man City will look to add Robbie Keane to the squad. Liverpool don't want to sell but have said Man City can have him for 27mil. Hughes wants a second striker, a leader and more experience so City will pay the money. Crazy money.

City will also sign Roque Santa Cruz (18mil) Michael Turner (9mil) Glen Johnson (10mil)
Esteban Cambiasso (16mil) and Fabio Grosso (8mil)
  I have inside information that David Moyes is pursuing two players. First is Michael Owen of Newcastle, which will be funded by a swap for out of favour Leighton Baines plus £2million in Everton's favour. Second is Jermaine Pennant of Liverpool. Moyes has already tabled an offer of £1.5m for the want–away winger and is waiting a response. It is highly likely that both of these transfers will go ahead. You may wonder where I got this information? Let's just say that I am a keen theatre goer and leave it at that ;–)
