Bobby Zamora to sign for Brighton in January

Loan to Buy subject to fitness. Rednapp's interest in taking Anelka to QPR make Zamora's return to Brighton more likely.

Doesn't matter to Brighton, look's like they are after at least ten strikers

Darren Bent is in on Holloways radar
with a Loan move possible in January
as Lambert looks to get Bents hunger the game back for Goals and Palace are the ideal
with their excellent distribution.

Lucas Biglia and Dieumerci Mbokani of Anderlecht are targets of Norwich and are set to sign in January. Both players have aspirations of playing in the Premier League and Norwich are a club going in the right direction.

Norwich couldnt afford one of them let alone both

Fed up with norwich,nicking our players on cheap,first doug crofts,then elliot bennet. you will not get cms or bridcup. cms needs a fellow striker of murrey standard ,then watch him score.charlie austin another brighton target. lay off norwich . the seagulls are no longer a selling club.a great chairman sees to that.go away norwich .chris houghton ,relegation .yo yo boys



21 Dec 2012 16:55:00
Brighton are chasing a new striker after their recent barren run in front of goal. Rumour has it they are interested in a potential loan deal for out-of-favour Danny Graham at Swansea and Jermaine Beckford from Leicester. Poyet worked with Beckford during his time at Leeds and Graham's links with Orlandi and Dobbie (now at Brighton) may sway him to a move on the South Coast too.

Can't see a loan for graham

Your in the market for a new striker as CMS will be leaving in january.
also beckford has already played for 2 clubs this season so id rule him out

Every day another striker linked to Brighton. If Beckford stays on loan it will be at Huddersfield. Think it would have to be a permanent deal for him to go anywhere else.



21 Dec 2012 16:16:08

21 Dec 2012 14:09:53
Brighton will sign Chris Wood from west brom in January after he was seen leaving the Amex late Tuesday night after having a medical. 2 good sources!!

Or he was seen because we had just played against him that night?



21 Dec 2012 13:43:00
Ezequiel Garay to Manchester United for £15 Million.
Paul Robinson to either West Ham or Southampton.
Also QPR are to sign Salomon Kalou on loan from Lille.




21 Dec 2012 13:44:32
Southampton looking to sign Paul Robinson and Scott dann for a combined 8 million from Blackburn. Rovers are keen to reduce their wage bill as promotion is looking unlikely.

No way. Too old, and not worth that sort of money.

Good joke. You are not going to offload your old players who are no longer good enough for the Premiership onto Southampton especially not for that much.



21 Dec 2012 13:34:37
Stewart downing is in line for surprise 6 month loan deal until the end of the season from Liverpool to reading as bate for the permanent signing of Alex pearce from reading to Liverpool at the end of the loan Liverpool will look to of load permanently in the summer as they feel they will get a better price then than in Jan for downing

This is rubbish, hes coming to boro

brian mcdermott will make a 3.5million pound move for swansea forward danny graham who has fallen out of favour at the liberty which will open the door for pavel pobgronaek to leave the club

Can't see him going for 3.5m more like 5m



21 Dec 2012 13:27:50
Heard from a realible source within Brighton & Hove that we will have a happy New Year with the signing of 2 STRIKER, no idea who

Chris wood from west brom definite

Just as long as Poyet does.



21 Dec 2012 13:26:52
ITFC are set for a triple swoop on Wolves , the players MM is after are Stearman , Zubar & SEB.

The Tractor Boy

You can have them with pleasure!

I doubt Sophie Ellis Bextor will do them much good.



21 Dec 2012 13:23:30
the royals will try and persuade peter whittingham of cardiff to join them in january and will make a 3 million pound bid brian mcdermott is known to be a big admirer of the left sided player

There's no chance that Whittingham will go anywhere. Malky sees him as a key man in his promotion push

Leave a team that could be going up for one that could be going down ? Very doubtful.


3 million you having a laugh try doubling that and you're still wasting you're time....he's staying with the bluebirds ........................stokebluebird



21 Dec 2012 13:09:10
West Brom to sign Blackburn keeper and former England international Paul Robinson.

Boaz Myhill will be sold to Birmingham to replace Jack Butland who's on his way to Liverpool.



21 Dec 2012 13:05:21
West Brom to sign long-term target Aruna Dindane in January.

West Brom have been interested in Dindane since way back in 2007 when he played for Lens but a move never materialised.

West brom have said they will be signing no one in january.

Brighton transfer activity in January:

Chris Wood - WBA - £2m
Miguel Ignal - Arsenal - Loan

Sebastian Ribas - Inter - £1.9m
Abdul Razak - Man City - £700k
Glen Murray - Crystal Palace - £2.5m
Elliott Bennett - Norwich - Part Ex

David Bentley - Spurs - Loan

Matt Sparrow - Scunthorpe - Loan

Craig Mackail-Smith - Norwich - £4m
Ryan Harley - Sunderland - £3.2m
Gary Dicker - Tranmere - Loan

Liam Bridcutt - Norwich - £4.2m
Bruno Saltor - Various Interest - £3m
Will Buckley - Various Interest - £3m

We shall see how definate a signing Wood is in Jan?

Well BHA fans don't be surprised if Wood has to go back to WBA until the summer as cover! & then you still wont get him!

You clearly do not know anything about Brighton Football Club! Some of these are ridiculous!! Harley at 3.2 million is laughable. We would let him go for free. Harley also worth more than Buckley is insane. 4.2 for Bridcutt.... as good as he is i do not think so

Will Buckley, if he goes will go for a lot more than £3m. Harley will go for much less than £3.2m. Would love it if we signed Wood

All I can say is ... what a load of tosh

Glenn Murray left brighton for Palace why would he leave a better club where he is happy for a worse club, not possible! Being honest!



21 Dec 2012 12:09:28
West ham to take highly rated
OSVALDO ALONSO on loan as a
defensive midfield cover for Mohammed
Diame. Hammers also expected to tie up Loan deal for Marouanne Chamakh with Hammers expected to cut there losses and let
Andy Carroll return to Liverpool in January.#
This frees up funds to bring in Nicolas
Anelka and Jason Puncheon

Jason Puncheon will not move anywhere in January.



21 Dec 2012 11:35:47

derby duo jeff hendrick and john brayford

Sunderland also to renew interest in Lyon forward Bafetimbi Gomis in January.



21 Dec 2012 11:25:35

There's more chance of a Maya end of the world today



21 Dec 2012 11:24:45
Darren Bent to return tho the Stadium of Light for £10m in January.



21 Dec 2012 10:19:12
reading fc are to use the january window to build a championship team to come straight back up expect gorks guthrie harte federici hunt to be sold in jan with lee camp curtis davis charlie austin coming in on a permanent basis with tom huddlestone coming in on loan

You make coming straight back up sound easy. Better ask Woves, Bolton and Blackburn fans if they agree.


If we are building a championship team then why get rid of last seasons best championship CB, LB and GK?

Hunt is going nowhere, way too valuable for the dressing room

Concentrating on staying In PL first is more clever than already building for champ.

But they are trying to stay in the premier league

Never mind Hunt being valuable in the dressing, he's too valuable on the pitch

Harte is passed it, Federici is poor. Get rid of those 2, Leigertwood and Church



21 Dec 2012 10:02:39
Cheltenham will add Chris Robertson from Preston and Marvin Johnson from Kidderminster to the squad next month/ Meanwhile midfielder Darren Carter has rejected offers from Walsall and Rotherham to stay with the Rubies.

I support non of the clubs involved. But 100% Chris Robinson is NOT going to Cheltenham. May be shopping or Cheltenham Races but NOT the FC.

What about Chris Robertson?

Who I am sorry ! Yes Robertson is the player who will NOT be going to Cheltenham.

Rotherham are not after any more midfielders we hope to complete signing of Lee Frecklington (Peterborough) then we are targeting Strikers, Darren Carter not even on Rotherham's radar

According to Carter he turned down Walsall and Rotherham don't see why he is lying.

Cheltenham have money and probable league one football next season. No reason why Robertson would not join he almost signed before going to Preston and he is not happy up there now.

Glos Echo reporter John Palmer has confirmed Cheltenham boss Yates wants to sign Robertson from Preston - long term target.



21 Dec 2012 09:18:24
Ahmed ElMohammady and Robert Brady are set to sign permantly for Hull on the 1st of january!



21 Dec 2012 09:02:45
Reading are interested in Zambian defensive midfielder felix stoppila sunzu. Arsenal are also interested in him but he has choosen to sign for reading.

Who does he play for



21 Dec 2012 06:39:26
David Beckham was at Southend the other day, did he pop into Roots Hall ?

I'm sure that would be a name that he wants to add to his career list; Manchester United, Real Madrid, Los Angeles Galaxy and Southend on Sea....

He has also been seen at Gatwick which does not mean he is signing for Crawley, or does it?

Some people really cant take a joke...

Perhaps that's where he gets his roots done.


Nope he was just toppin up his tan!



21 Dec 2012 00:42:26
Bristol Rovers reportedly looking to sign cheltenham midfielder Jermaine McGlashan in january, this i got from world football agent

Of course Bristol Rovers have half a million lying around and Jermaine would want to move to a club battling relegation to non-league. He'll only leave CTFC for a Championship club.



20 Dec 2012 23:51:49
Championship side Watford will be trying to lure hot Ghanaian prospect Kingsley Boateng to the UK in January having failed to agree contract terms with AC Milan. The talented 17 year old is a highly rated striker who Watford's new owners The Pozzo's have been keeping a close eye on.



20 Dec 2012 23:41:05
Bournemouth will only be operating one in, one out process in january with more exits expeting. Demouge and Davids are likely to retunr back to Holland, Gregory has terminated his contract, homas will be sold to Blackpool, Stephane Zubar may leave on loan as well as Joe Partington and Donal McDermott.

Howe may bring in Bartley who followed him to Burnley and is currently not playing, Howe will also look to strengthen in the full back area with only Daniels and Francis the only recognised full back.

The same Davids who is at barnet!??

No. Lorenzo Davids....cousin.

That seems quite possible, the dutch players have not shown much in their time in england. Fringe players put out on loan to get game time, and few signings to cover right and left back positions and playmaker for midfield.

A dutch team were watching davids against reading on tuesday but were more impressed with josh carmichael who was bmths stand out player maybe we could sell him to recoup some money

The Dutch Players have hardly played a game, would be shocking to see the both go in January. Can see Demouge leaving in the Summer though.

When davids has played he looks like a good player with a good touch, just didnt seem fit. wouldnt be surprised to see demouge, zubar, partington, mcdermott, tubbs, thomas and stockley leave on loan or permenantly
