You won't get Redmond, he's going to Southampton for bare cash mate



21 Jan 2013 22:51:29
Birmingham city striker marlon king is in talks with barnsley about possible move on free transfer.



21 Jan 2013 22:18:33

Bristol City set to make a triple raid in hope that they can save them from the drop. Kyle McFadzean will be coming after Crawley have accepted a £600,000 bid plus add ons. Birmingham City will also loan out midfielder Darren Ambrose. Robbie Earnshaw is the third target with Cardiff willing to let him go for nothing. Jon Stead could be on the way out with Peteborough set to make a half a million raid.

Peterborough will not pay 500k for a player aged 29. It may sound daft but he is far too old to fall in line with the clubs recruitment policy, Young players from the lower leagues or non league



21 Jan 2013 21:17:49
The Montreal Impact are reportedly keen on Nigel Reo-Coker.



21 Jan 2013 21:39:04
Lots of rumours going round that reading are to bid 1.6 million for Curtis Davis after Birmingham city told clubs they would be open to offers for their top players as they wanted to cut their wage bill.

It's in discussion but that's all atm. But Birmingham are desperate for money and will sell any player to stave off administration.



21 Jan 2013 21:13:50
Pep is set to make his first signings for Munich by signing
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Real Madrid midfielder

He doesn't take over until the summer.



21 Jan 2013 21:06:32
Gary Hooper has rejected a new contract at Celtic. Off to sunny Norfolk me thinks

Or off to sunderland

Just because he rejects the offer why does everyone think he is off to Norwich? That would be a bad club to go to for him and they won't pay the money as Celtic reject both bids falling short. Look for Liverpool to come in if Suarez is out

Looks like he's off to Sunderland, according to people at the club



21 Jan 2013 21:02:35
Nigel clough has been seen shaking hands tom glick now at manchester city about will hughes going there for a fee to be between 7-10 million

Glick was at derby, shaking hands is nothing doesn't mean a deal is done , Hughes won't leave



21 Jan 2013 20:56:14
Charlton are said to be in advanced talks with Nathan Redmond of Birmingham for a fee of about 1.5 million as Birmingham are in such financial trouble. I can't see that Charlton have that money but it is a vey reliable source so watch this space!

Charlton ? Haha {Ed034's Note - hmmm I would of thought prem was more likely

I would have thought Prem was more likely as well but I must admit I have heard this rumour as well. Charlton would certainly be a step up from Birmingham at the moment so you never know



21 Jan 2013 20:55:06
Middlesbrough are leading a pack of clubs that are wanting to sign birminghams Nathan Redmond for a cut price £2m



21 Jan 2013 20:32:34
Watford to sign Vydra, Abdi and Pudil before the end f the week. Deeney to sign on the dotted line as well. Happy days for the Hornets!!

Yes and rumours are they could be signing someone from an english club

Signing players from English clubs is so last year.

21 Jan 2013 22:16:58
vydra is too good for them, think udinese will keep him for themselves

21 Jan 2013 23:50:33
Would be a great signing for Watford, been waiting for ages for a decent striker at the club, hope he does sign!



21 Jan 2013 20:19:57
Fulham and Crystal Palace are set to go head to head in a race to sign Blackpool midfielder Ludovic Sylvestre who is in the final 6 months of his contract. Ian Holloway has made no secret of his intentions to reunited with his former central midfielder and sees Sylvestre as the ideal player to help Palace's promotion push. Palace are likely to use the chance of Sylvestre linking up with his former boss to the fullest. However they face stern competition in Fulham with the chance of playing in the Premier League within the month a big attraction to the midfielder.

Source- tv.

Ollie didn't play Ludo for 6 months.....why would he try and re-sign a palyer he didn't rate?

Then again Ollie gets a 10% sell on clause for Ludo.....nice little earner. Bid should be £1m+.....Ollie needs a new chicken shed {Ed003's Note - good point about Ludo but 10% is not right it is much lower and many managers have that clause,Ollie just went public with his}

{Ed003's Note - because everytime you mention a source it gets hits for being mentioned on the wonderful world of the net,we want people to talk rumours and banter without advertising other sources we try to be different from other sites,honest I think the word is I'm looking for,even if some are farfetched or I would say shit from China they get posted in diferent zones,dodgy,banter or rumours,but the amount of posts we have it's hard work,every post is viewed before being posted not like others who just let posts through and delete when the Ed/Mod turns up,I hope that helps.}



21 Jan 2013 19:44:56
Hi Ed, Is there any truth in Leicester trying to sign Jay Tabb, cheers.



21 Jan 2013 19:49:10
Leicester set to go back in for Cameron Stewart and make a bid in the region of 500k as the winger is no longer in Steve Bruces plans.



21 Jan 2013 19:52:50
Danny Kedwell is close to joining Ipswich Town.

Yes heard that we are to sign him. Scored a few down there

Are you mad !!! He is not a regular at gillingham, he would have to be very lucky to get in our line up.

Kedwell has said today that he wants to finish his career at gils (source - bbc)



21 Jan 2013 19:49:51
David Villa has requested a move from Barcelona due to a lack of first team football paving the way for a move to Arsenal. Wenger is plotting an initial bid of 10 million.

Its already confirmed he's not leaving..



21 Jan 2013 19:49:09
Wolves will complete the signing of Bermudan Bradford star Nakhi Wells.

Here we go again!!

How true is this? I doubt he'll be leaving before the summer. I can't see it

Top quality clubs should sign nahki wells (23). He is a great player and is capable of great things in his career.The likes of manchester United should sign the exciting attacker and then they should put him on loan to a championship team. He has great potential. But it looks like he'll be a WOLVES PLAYER. That sucks

The signing is subject to Bradfords progression in the capital one cup. Moxey is unwilling to overspend so the deal is likely to be off following a Bradford win against Villa, increasing the price on Wells for obvious reasons

Your annoyed he'll be a Wolves player however would be happy if United by him and send him out on loan to a championship club? How Logical..



21 Jan 2013 19:39:48
Strong and reliable source kenny miller will be joining hearts once transfer embargo is lifted



21 Jan 2013 19:30:20
Qpr on the case of sissoko, very real possibility of a deal being done.. Also odemwinge to sign before transfer window shuts, plus a centr back. ( any idea who this may be Ed?)

Olsson or Harland from Fulham



21 Jan 2013 19:21:12
Mick McCarthy has made an inquiry to Sunderland regarding Westwood. However as it stands that's as far as the move is. Also, Town have made a bid for Darren Ambrose, but that is also as far as that move is.



21 Jan 2013 19:19:56
Clough interested in buying striker to play alongside Sammon. Clough to make £500K for Gillingham goal-machine Danny Kedwell. Also centre-back Jack Stephens linked with a season-long loan move from Southampton.

Heard we were signing him (Ipswich)

If only that was true

Danny Kedwell is not leaving Gillingham. Read Martin Allen's comments on the tv website!



21 Jan 2013 19:17:44
Crawley Centre Back Davis has signed for Rotherham (source local Sussex paper the Argus).



21 Jan 2013 19:17:12
Matej Vydra's agent says that if he signs for anyone this window it will be for watford.

Doesn't mean he will, but it does mean he won't be off to any of the lower ranking Prem clubs like Saints, West Ham or Fulham who have been sniffing round him

Rumour s Vydra to sign for the Hornets by the end of the week

I think his agent has inferred he will wait to see if he can get Watford prompted first. If so then he signs. If not, then he will consider other things which might mean go back to Udinese, or go elsewhere. But he will absolutely not sign for anyone else this window.

Vydra won't be signing for Watford in January. He is waiting to see if Watford get promoted he wants to play in the Premier League.

Keith Hill to be installed as Rochdale manager before Friday nights game away at Cheltenham Town

Steve Kean has been spotted at Rochdale this afternoon



21 Jan 2013 18:54:33
Zaha off for 8 mil quid plus add on plus being loaned back with nick powell on loan

They turned down 10m from united Friday so why now sell him for 8m

I thought Nick Powell had a long-term injury, which pretty much makes this version of the Zaha deal dead in the water



21 Jan 2013 18:44:56
Norwich to move for Zigic after being told he can leave Birmingham. He will link up again with manager Hughton.

Never in a million years.

He's worse than Morison.

I would cry, for days.

Sounds right we always buy championship players hughton loves em ......

Zigic is better than morrision and he scorsgoals

Why does hughton love them? You mean Lambert loved them. Hughton brought bassong, tetty, whittaker, Turner garrido. Basically he bought snodgrass and bunn... That's it.

Crystal Palace are set to lose their prize asset in Wing Wizard Wilfried Zaha as Manchester United are set to call their bluff with an offer of £16million plus and the loan back of Zaha and the loan of one other player .But there
could be a stumbling block in that offer as the player himself fancies a move to Arsenal as now that they are
thought to be in for the talented midfielder which zaha himself said it would be a dream come true to play for the club he supports .



21 Jan 2013 17:59:40

Edd any other news apart from the fraizer Campbell deal? Who is mm looking at next? {Ed003's Note - you are looking for a right back}



21 Jan 2013 17:47:10
Darren Bent to have medical Monday/ Tuesday at motspur park

Villa have stated that they will not sell to a club that are around Villa in the relegation zone, and if you look at the table fulham are as much in the pooh as villa

Where's that? {Ed003's Note - Fulham}



21 Jan 2013 17:43:29
Saints have their sights on Charlie Austin who maybe tempted by the move back closer to Poole where he comes from, although they face competition for his signature from a host of other potential suitors including Celtic who are weighing up a move four him to replace Norwich bound Gary Hooper

I thought he grew up and went to school in newbury.



21 Jan 2013 17:39:41
With his short-term deal coming to an end on the 27th January, Paul Robinson appears likely to make a return to Watford, in order to provide experience for their promotion push and cover for daniel pudil. The fact that Birmingham now can't afford to keep their high earners means that Watford have a better chance of making this move

Why would Watford want him. They have Forsyth and can utilise Neuton

Not good enough for Watford now, they have a much better left back in Daniel Pudil!

The time when Robbo would have been a good signing for Watford has come and gone.

A Watford legend, but wouldn't get into the team they have now.

Watford legend in his time, but things have moved on and he would not get in the current squad



21 Jan 2013 17:35:55
Due to a lack of transfer funds, Nigel Clough is looking to the loan markets to strengthen the Derby squad.
Rumours suggest he wants to bring in Jack Robinson from Liverpool and Connor Wickham from Sunderland on loan until the end of the season. {Ed003's Note - Unlikely Robinson will be allowed out on loan while Enrique is injured mate}



21 Jan 2013 17:16:12
Everton and Southampton both enquiring about hooper 8.5 mil thought to be the asking price lets

21 Jan 2013 18:58:19
The saints do not want or need hooper, and he is not good enough for Everton.

21 Jan 2013 19:03:18
im a saints fan saints don't want him and everton is probably in for him

21 Jan 2013 20:58:07
Don't think any of the 2 has the funds 2 buy him

This rumour as far as Southampton are concerned died out when Adkins went, even before he did it had very little substance. Our new boss knows that Hooper isn't enough to get to Europe and therefore not even worth a look in. Especially for anything more than 5 million!



21 Jan 2013 17:09:57
Fraizer Campbell has signed for Cardiff until the end of the 2015-16 season. This could see that Sunderland sign a striker (probably Danny Graham from Swansea) in the next 48 hours.

Can't see him leaving before the semi final



21 Jan 2013 17:05:04
Leeds United to seal a double swoop for Celtics Georgios Samaras and Paddy McCourt

You can have McCourt but Sammy is a true Celtic and will stay until a epl club he likes comes in

Never going to happen maybe the derry pele (McCourt) but eli dingle will not be leaving.

Leeds are skint where are they going to get 6million pounds



21 Jan 2013 16:59:24
Norwich and West Brom both considering making offers for Liam Bridcutt.

21 Jan 2013 16:58:29
Everton have made an enquiry for Gary Hooper

Moyes had him watched at the weekend. the enquiry has been made. celtic asking for £8m. Toffees will test the water with £6m bid

Dont think everton could afford him at this time maybe in the summer.



21 Jan 2013 16:56:39
Fulham, Stoke, West Brom and Wigan are all battling it out to sign Nathan Redmond.

21 Jan 2013 19:41:53
Don't think so baggies have got better players in the reserves

Nathan who? (yes, yes I know, Birmingham player, just making a point. Can't see any justification as to why 4 Pl clubs would be 'battling' it out for him?)

No thanks blues, sell him to villa with the young and useless



21 Jan 2013 16:52:43
Celtic are prepairing a bid for Burnley's Charlie Austin... it is expected that Norwich are about to make a new and improved offer for Gary Hooper of around £8m which is thought to be enough for Celtic to except as the player only has 18months left of his contract... Celtic see Austin as an ideal replacement for Hooper and say he is a proven goal scorer after notching 23 goals in 27 apperances this season which makes him English footballs top scorer...

You mean joint highest top scorer.

21 Jan 2013 18:26:21
it will cost them 6-10 million if they want Austin

It will take more than £10,000,000 to buy him

Hooper is by far a better player than Austin 6-8m get a grip

a reality check please

21 Jan 2013 16:06:40
Deane Smalley's return to fitness will finally see him join York City. Manager Gary Mills hopes to complete a 1 month loan deal to tide the Minstermen over whilst Ashley Chambers and Oli Johnson remain sidelined, Jamie Reed exits the club and a move for former Derry striker David McDaid is finalised.

We (oufc) have been desperate for Smalley to get back fit, as we only have 2 available strikers. So why would we then loan him out for a month?
Not going to happen! If you take him permantly is more realstic, gets his big wage off the budget and we can strengthen with another player and prob then extend Richards' loan

Deane smalley back to fitness and if we did offload him wouldn't want to keep richards though



21 Jan 2013 16:03:22

Yea yea - how many more times are we going to hear about this.

21 Jan 2013 19:19:35
Get a grip, you will need to pay top dollar before he leaves for a relagtion fight ! Come on seriously we are in the last 16 and could make it to the last 8 ! Why would he swap that just for a few extra quid, when an even bigger club will come in for him!

21 Jan 2013 21:04:57
Just been anounced on that Hooper has rejected new contract offer from Celtic. Maybe all the Celtic fans on here may have some thoughts on the matter!! Off to Norwich me thinks

Eeeerrrmmmmm for a few extra quid!

Coventry are in talks with Ipswich striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas over a loan deal until the end of the season.

He is set to join Preston on a 18 month contract {Ed003's Note - Wages ?? }

If it was a straight choice between the two clubs he would surely choose city think we would suit his style of play better rather than pne lump it and kick your apponents tactics

21 Jan 2013 19:56:46
preston are in a best state than coventry are and can afford scotland

Preston looks set to have a strong front line.. that's the last 2 or 3 players that have been linked with cov, that will apparantley be signing for preston!

After being released by Norwich Simon Lappin is now being targeted by Cardiff, Peterborough, Ipswich, Bristol City, Huddersfield Town and Derby.

I hope we dont.

He will do a cracking job for all those teams. Only team he wouldn't dream of joining is Ipswich. Norwich fans wouldn't take too kindly to that!

Gutted that lappin left, excellent servent to the club, consistent. Good luck king of Spain!

My god as a Norwich fan, there is no chance he would move to Ipswich... He is the most passionate man to put on a Norwich shirt for a while and one thing is for certain he HATES Ipswich

He won't go to posh he's to old it doesn't fit there player age policy

Gutted that we released Lappin... he's a great player that will never let you down. He would only benefit any Championship club and in my opinion makes a huge difference in the dressing room at any club. All clubs need a player like Simon, who would train with the youth teams for 4 hours before starting first team training. All the best Simon, and you'll always be our King of Spain!

I would welcome him to Cardiff, would ensure that we have enough cover at left back atleast until the end of the season. All we need now is a decent right back. Left midfield would be nice to strengthen also but we can't have everything. MH

Why is he your king of spain?

Simon lappin king of Spain, king of Spain, king of Spain, Simon lappin king of Spain he looks Spanish!



21 Jan 2013 14:14:47
Appleton likely to link up with Wes Thomas again after signing him for both Portsmouth and Blackpool. The ex-Cheltenham hitman may be seen as the ideal partner for Rhodes.

SERIOUSLY!!.....If Appy doesn't raise his sites higher than Wes Thomas he's gone before the end of the season.

I hear the Venkys are hopefull Appy will get Blackburn to win Serie A next season.



21 Jan 2013 14:10:41

Nigel Adkins was approached by Dean Hoyle yesterday evening with a view to taking over at Huddersfield. Adkins has stated he wishes to take a few months out of the game and is currently unavailable.

Can't blame the guy really.. Double promotion with the Saints.. Starting to compete in the premiership then to hear he's being replaced by a Spaniard nobody outside La liga has ever heard of! Good luck Nigel.. would love to see him at town though!! {Ed003's Note - Argentinian}

I wish this were true but its not how Hoyle does business. Adkins will be in high demand from a championship club at some early point but can understand if he does want some time out, he must be gutted even by footballing standards his sacking was outrageous.

If he is not available then take anyone else until the end of the season before its too late.
Grayson does not have the character or passion for HTAFC. This was always going to happen - act quickly Hoyle and don't leave the next guy a mountain to climb.

Adkins favourite to replace Pardew (des ja vous)
Lambert and Hooper to St James.
Huddersfield keep Grayson and stay in league one

21 Jan 2013 15:36:02
Doubtful as Hoyle will not sack him.... It will show on Saturday when we are battered and nobody turns up.... Personally Grayson needs to go sooner rather than later.... Least Clark showed passion on the touchline and in his interviews.... Come on dean do the right thing....

Unfortunately, I think we are stuck with Grayson. I also cannot see any new signings in this window, maybe a defender and a wide man. No idea who though. If I was Deano, I would give Grayson a last chance during this window to shake it up a bit and meanwhile work behind the scenes for a replacement. How about giving Mark Lillis a chance. He's done great things with the U18's.

Mark Lillis? Are you having a laugh, if he`s put in charge we won`t just be relegated we will go non league, what's he done at his other clubs? Answer Nowt!

21 Jan 2013 19:50:49
Don't get me wrong a love deno but if he loves the club why int he signing players who are going to change are curent situation or sack Grayson and bring in Karl Robinson or Adkins ECT

Yeah I mean cmon Mark Lillis? Behave mate



21 Jan 2013 13:39:23
Doncaster will offer Jason Scotland a deal with the club

Rovers are also interested in Forest Green striker Reece Styche

Scotland having a trial at Coventry today.



21 Jan 2013 13:33:44
Clayton MacDonald to sign 1 year deal at Bristol Rovers later today



21 Jan 2013 13:36:09
Former Hereford United striker Mathieu Manset is keen on a move back to English Football and is on trial at Barnsley.

23 year old Frenchman Manset left Swiss side Sion FC earlier this month quoting 'irreconcilable differences' as his reason for leaving.

Manset left Edgar Street for Reading in 2011 but only scored five times in almost 30 appearances. He then moved to Chinese side Shaghai Shenua.

Done a little background on him it seems he has more of an impact from the bench, but not a big goal scorer, got himself a 3 week club suspension back in September for nightclubbing the day before a match, could be trouble?'

A young odejayi look a like - his goal scoring record is also similar = sound like a KH singing



21 Jan 2013 13:19:27
Barnsley taken striker Mat Manset on trial
Wombwell RED

Which wombwell red is this then, I know a lot of wombwell reds lol xx

21 Jan 2013 18:40:42
One that lives in Wombwell lol



21 Jan 2013 12:47:37
O's re-sign Elliot Omazusi on a contract until the end of the season.



21 Jan 2013 12:45:43
Striker Jason Scotland is set to join league one side Walsall on a 18 month contract following his release from Ipswich

Memo to albion manager clarke, if you have any more top class players to give away on a free like mantom can you send them over to walsall please, I don't think he will be with us for long but it great to watch creative passing football instead of the big boot



21 Jan 2013 12:42:21
newcastle to miss out on mbwia, he is set for arsenal

WRONG! He has already agreed to join Newcastle deal almost complete

Dont thinks so he's got a medical with us

21 Jan 2013 19:40:39
If wenger does want him, he will sign! Newcastle or arsenal? Not a hard decision

Lol he's on his way up north to talk professional terms, not losing another top French player to money throwing Londoners again hopefully


Hes just signed apparently



21 Jan 2013 12:41:30
moussa sissoko to reject newcastle and go to qpr

21 Jan 2013 17:51:34
Harry's preparing them for administration

21 Jan 2013 19:25:37
Administration ! Don't make me laugh. We have two backers that are prepared to put there money into the club even with the very possibility we are going down! Here for the long haul! Sorry to disappoint

Do they really need any more over payed players seriously


Throwing money at a situation won't fix it instantly, you actually need committed players QPR




21 Jan 2013 12:17:19
Paul Benson and Stephane Zubar will sign for Bristol Rovers this week.

PB initially on loan with a view to another 18 months if the Gas beat the drop . SZ short term contract with a one year extension again if the Gas stay up.



21 Jan 2013 12:08:05
4 players are on trial at Coventry. Jason Scotland thought to be one of them.

Yes and thankfully cody will be gone. Gills to tie up deal this week and Scotland to sign for us.

Jason scotland is training with preston

21 Jan 2013 14:25:48
NOT just Cody I hope!
O'Donovan, Bell, Ball sadly,
Can't have too many strikers

Any thoughts of who else it could be

No one's on trial with us.

Yes there are four players on trial. It was announced recently.

As for Ball we can't get rid of him until the end of season as its a season long loan. The only way he would go is if Derby recalled him.

Bell isn't a striker either, he's an attacking midfielder who plays down the right channel and I believe MR is giving him a chance to prove his worth.

Rumours are O'Donovan and Cody will go out on loans till the season with a view to a perminant transfer at the end of the season.

21 Jan 2013 22:57:20
where was it annonced ? who are they if anyone knows?



21 Jan 2013 12:05:58
Rumours down South are saying Nigel Adkins to replace Alan Pardew (Again) He will then take Rickie Lambert (5M) Adam Lallana (10M) and Jack Cork (5M) with him and come back for the likes of Luke Shaw in Summer.

Saints mean while are going continental with fast skillful young players to fit into the chairmans Barcelona vision. Exspect the likes of Countino and Sorenson to arrive.

No part of this will happen.

You're forgetting the fact the Alan Pardew is one of Mike Ashleys best mates... he also signed an 8 year contract in September...

Newcastle will have to sell Cisse to fund the sacking of Pardew..

21 Jan 2013 13:55:33
Pardew has 8 years left on his contract, there is no way he is going anywhere it would cost mike ashley millions!!

Sorry but rubbish

21 Jan 2013 19:38:50
It will cost Ashley a lot more when they get relegated! 8 year contract! What was he thinking?



21 Jan 2013 11:35:20
Manchester United have reportedly agreed a 15 million fee with Crystal Palace to sign winger Wilfried Zaha. The deal starts at 10 million, rising to 15 based on appearances, achievements and so on. Ferguson's said to have held personal talks with Zaha to discuss terms. The only issue left is regarding whether Zaha would stay on loan at Selhurst Park for the rest of the season or not, though it is thought to be decided upon within the next week.

Crystal Palace are set to go head to head with Leeds for Gary Taylor-Fletcher from Blackpool after the forward declared his intentions to leave Bloomfield Road. Palace are thought to be leading the chase, but a bid for the player is yet to have been received by Blackpool from either club just yet.

When did GTF say that who to and what were his exact words until then I won't believe it {Ed003's Note - He hasn't said that,but speculation is Huddersfield want him,only speculation though}

21 Jan 2013 15:13:01
Thats just about the only position we don't really need anyone for

Ed003.....I honestly wouldn't put it past him.

Just delivering the speculation from the papers, don't shoot the messenger..



21 Jan 2013 11:18:35
Charlton in talks with Fitz Hall from watford

Funny that as he is out in La Manga on a training camp with watford. He is also wanting a new deal at watford as she see's us better than the winning QPR side he was in before.

In your dreams

21 Jan 2013 13:10:15
Watford are trying to secure the loan signing of Sebastián Coates. Gianfranco Zola is looking to strengthen his defence in pursuit of promotion.
The 22 year old has been capped at international level but has been lacking playing time under Brendan Rodgers.

I have to say that this is unlikely. Hall has been excellent to date this season, and no 1 choice as rugged man mountain centre back

Maybe for next season

Charlton don't need a Centre back so I can't see this happening.

Yes, all to do with whether Charlton want him, obviously.

Nothing to do with the fact that he would see it as a backward step as he has been virtually ever-present for a team pushing for automatic promotion.

Charlton fans in fantasy world again

Love the way football fans think. Watford sit in 6th and are now deemed on a different planet to Charlton and leaving the drab Vicarage Rd for the Valley would be a backwards step. Get a grip Hornet.

Coates is a decent player, but with Watford having a few options at the back already, there would be no guarantee he'd be first pick.

Seeing as we put four past them a couple of weeks ago I think we'll stick with our own back four thanks.

Charlton aren't broke and don't need to ofload players quickly...

21 Jan 2013 20:49:47
Charlton to finish 5th? form team at the moment? laughable.

Hope we don't he's terrible..get rid of cort he's inconsistent and Bradley Pritchard is a league 2 player..we need a strong commanding centre back someone with knowledge of the game

Charlton aren't broke and don't need to ofload players quickly...
No but we are very poor and if Powell wants to strengthen the current team to push on this season and the next then players need to go to make funds available.

One Size wasn't playing when you put four past us, and that was the most probable reason for it, we had an inexperienced back line. But the possibility of Premiership football with Watford next season is surely more enticing than Championship mediocrity with Charlton?

21 Jan 2013 23:03:40
Charlton want fitz hall to sure up their defence but a transfer is impossible as charlton don't have the funds.
Btw I was at the 4-3 game and tbh we didn't play our first team and were done because of this. Full strength watford side can beat anyone in this division. Let us score first and you will be given a hiding. Well done charlton mind. Have Zola a real reality check and thankfully since his rotation is not 5/6 players at a time. How bad a decision that was.

Hall did not play against charlton a few weeks ago remember that fact. Stick with your back four? You still conceded 3 don't forget. Next season the mighty hornets will be a league above Charlton...COYH vydra to sign by friday!

Fitz Hall was injured when Charlton put 4 past us. person.



21 Jan 2013 11:11:53
Millwall star darius henderson will not be offered a new deal untill the club know the result of his upcoming court case, meanwhile, harry kane will be heading to millwall on loan untill the end of the season

Kane is at Norwich at the moment

Spurs will obviously recall him as the deal will include permanent surely...hope this is true



21 Jan 2013 11:08:26
Millwall are ready to test norwich citys resolve with a loan bid for steve morison with the view of a permanent 1.2 million pound offer at the end of the season.

I would drive him there myself if millwall offer £3m for him. millwall won't get him for £1.2m.

Millwall haven't got 3m, they can have tyson while us reds get henderson off there hands ;) can't see millwall progressing after a good start especially after missing out on wood

Norwich bought him for 2.8m and he has got older, how and why would millwall pay 3 million when norwich would clearly accept around 1 million

21 Jan 2013 14:39:15
He scored 8 last season, so his price has gone up or give us back the money we gave you?

Tyson is injured and may go back to Derby. Henderson is awaiting his court case, so might not be much use to anyone.
Millwall to go back into the market for one or two strikers and possibly a left back.

Millwall have 3 million just not prepared to spend it, plus tyson injured he's ankle on saturday after 5 minutes and limped the last what 20 mins now is set to be out for several weeks so he can go back thanks

Tyson has a long record of injuries! Can´t understand KJ on this one.



21 Jan 2013 10:57:56
Done deal brad potts to sign for sunderland this week on a 4 and a half year deal for a fee of 1.2 million which could rise to 2 million with add ons.



21 Jan 2013 10:51:27
Yeovil are in advanced talks with ex-player Nathan Smith for a shock return from Chesterfield for an undisclosed fee. Gary Johnson wants more pace down his left flank to balance the signing of Joe Edwards on the far side.

No they are not Smith is our first team left back and is in Paul Cooks plans pure fabrication

Just because he's your first choice LB doesn't mean he can't leave. RVP was Arsenals main ST he left for Man Utd

Nathan Smith was quality! Loved him



21 Jan 2013 10:37:17
Walsall butler signs for rotherham for 100k

Signed Claude Davis don't need Butler, he was only a back up signing...



21 Jan 2013 10:16:51
Claud Davis tuned down Rotherham and is set to sign for Shrewsbury.

Rotherham are now poised to sign Bobby Hassell on loan with view to a permenant deal in the summer.

Rotherham have made a 10k bid for Shaun Harrad of Bury

Davis to sign 18 month deal at shrewsbury in light of news Grandison COULD miss the rest of the season with hip injury

Claude Davis has signed for Rotherham on an 18 month contract- official, just announced.

Don't think so, Rotherham have just signed Claude Davis.

Claud Davis sign for Rotherham now

21 Jan 2013 14:50:20
Davis is a miller just signed a 18 month contract

Davis signed for millers, official.



21 Jan 2013 10:11:49
Craig beattie has gone back to scotland and will not sign for notts as he didn't impress on his trial



21 Jan 2013 09:44:44
Lambert will be sacked or forced to 'resign' if Villa fail to progress tomorrow night against Bradford. Everything hinges on the outcome, hence the total lack of transfers

Good bye lambert hello wembley



21 Jan 2013 09:43:28
Arsenal interested in Victor Wanyama.



21 Jan 2013 09:31:39
doncaster and wolves are intrested in singing jason scotland. {Ed001's Note - ah I remember that! It was a Soca song for one of the world cups. I just can't remember which one, anyone else remember it?}

Like Peter Sellers sang George Gershwin!!

There's only one Jason Scotland or Super Jason Scotland are two they could sing.



21 Jan 2013 09:25:15
if danny graham goes to norwich, newcastle will turn there attention to grant holt for £5 million, holt would love to move back up so he could be near carlisle,

Try driving from Newcastle to Carlisle!

50 mile away, he will be closer to home, that's what I meant !

Not true, he lives in my village and is nicely settled here

Why would they want holt sorry he's a good player but he has a year left in him come on, if they offer 5mill I really hope they take it might annoy a lot of fans but gotta be realistic

Newcastle are busy trying to buy up any player from the french league, hoping they strike lucky like last season

He is signing for Carlisle 1/2 a million for him and a 2 year contract and also delay is signing this week along wid darrius vassel and a unknown center half and right back /wing and Andy welsh cadamartri and simek to leave

Holt come up every summer and owns a house in Carlisle, ask him he will tell you often in the pub in the summer having a meal.

Near Carlisle .newcastle is hours away from there lol {Ed003's Note -No it's not}

Since when does cost cutting at carlisle mean "He is signing for Carlisle 1/2 a million for him and a 2 year contract and also delay is signing this week along wid darrius vassel and a unknown center half and right back /wing and Andy welsh cadamartri and simek to leave"

1 hour and 19 minutes, think the person who thins it is hours away needs a map

Newcastle is 50 miles away from Carlisle

22 Jan 2013 01:24:31
not rubbishing this rumour but Holt just signed a new 3 year contract in the summer and also stated on twitter that his wife and kids love living in Norwich, but that's not to say he would not also like to move back to the north.



21 Jan 2013 09:12:27
AFC Wimbledon will add to their ranks of former WFC players by signing former £7m target man Carl Cort in the January window.

This old chestnut again

What source did you get this from?



21 Jan 2013 09:10:25
I'm an Arsenal fan so don't know the player but i've been told by a good sauce that norwich are on the verge of signing liam bridcutt a player who aparently playes for championsip side brighton?

Hope so, he is a good player

One suspects your source was being a bit of a sauce.

Ketchup is pretty good I agree

21 Jan 2013 11:41:06
He is indeed Birghton. Former Chelsea youth acadamy, loan spell at Watford FC when Brendan Rodgers was managing. Holding midfielder, decent passer of the ball.

I love how some prem fans know nothing about any division other than the Prem!

Class act. Will do a great job for them.

I don't mean this to sound offensive to NCFC fans but I think Bridcutt is too good for Norwich. Having watched him for 3 seasons now, he has evolved into the best defensive midfielder I've ever seen at Brighton (except maybe Jimmy Case). I really believe he could play for almost any Prem club but certainly any in the second tier of teams in that division (ie Spurs, Everton etc).

On the plus side, he's signed up until 2015 so will cost a hefty fee, but he's worth more than that to Brighton, so here's hoping for 1st Feb asap!

Methinks the gooner doth protest too much! I smell s Palace fan making mischief

Never going to happen

Will play for England one day

I love how some people believe it when someone says they support a team...

I'm a Chelsea fan myself but I've been told by a good source that Brighton are going to sign Watfords John Eustace as a Replacement...

As I said I am neither a Watford or a Brighton fan then this has to be true....

What would I possible gain from posting a lie...

***Sorry little rant :-).

Bridcutt is a decent player doubt he'll go for cheap if he does move at all..

Eustace?! you have to be joking. we were after him years ago while we were in league one. Bridcutt is the best centre midfielder outside the prem and could play for near enough any team in the world. I think top 4 is possibly out of the question, yet saying that I think he would be unreal at arsenal. I agree he would play for england one day, however he had shown interest in playing for scotland. But unbelievably they havn't picked him yet!



21 Jan 2013 09:03:16
Burton Albion players in demand:

Calvin Zola to Rotherham
Billy Kee to Barnsley or Crawley
Matt Paterson to Portsmouth or Notts County
Jacques Maghoma to Ipswich
Zander Diamond to Bury

Zola is a done deal is at New York today also akenfenwa is due to join Taylor of rotherham signs for Northampton with odejyi off to Northampton also

Zola on his way to Rotherham and will sign weather permitting Wednesday. Jason Taylor going the other way as part of deal but only if Rotherham sign Claude Davis from Crawley due to Arnasson being played in Defence as cover.

No none of them are ging nowhere

Bury couldn't afford zander..Paterson I'd drive to notts county. The rest seem feasible

Bury have made a last ditch attempt to sign Zola.

21 Jan 2013 14:12:41
According to people we got Mathieu Manset on trial at the club... Anyone from reading Hereford or shanghai any idea if he's any good all I can gather is he's a big boy and don't score many... So just like harewood, Davies and odejayi and Gray and every other forward!

Why do bury fc want to buy calvin zola he is stopping at burton albion until the end of the season.

We don't want zander he's rubbish

21 Jan 2013 20:06:56
Rotherham got Claude Davis on a Free transfer



21 Jan 2013 08:54:22
Clough laughs off report that Derby want Dexter

Clough said that they were all having a chuckle about signing that player.



21 Jan 2013 08:45:00
Players rumoured in are.
Steven Caulker LOAN
Jose Callejon 6.5mil
Hector Moreno FREE
Rui Fonte FREE

Ins for who ??????

Rumoured for who? We ain't psychic . Anyway Tottenham would not be loaning out caulker!

Im assuming he means Southampton, but as above guy say's Caulker, no chance



21 Jan 2013 08:33:36
Northampton to lose bayo akinfenwa who is on his way to Rotherham before the weekend.
With the money the cobblers hope to promote Louis moult to the team and also sign a championship youth team player on loan to the end of the season to aid their big push for promotion.

Rotherham? HAHA.... If bayo was to move away from northampton it would be to a team south of northampton.. Like he's always said.. Living in London I doubt moving upto the dive Rotherham is... Nice rumour lol

21 Jan 2013 12:36:40
Akinfenwa too gills?

He's not going to them he's going to a team in london

His off to gillingham or coventry



21 Jan 2013 08:25:38

Free agent mikael forrsell on trial with league two side chesterfield

He plays for HJK

Hope not. Need a young pacey attacking not a has been on silly money!

Not on trial at chesterfield ??



21 Jan 2013 00:53:50
Expect some moves away from Dean Court before the window closes.

Darryl Flahavan looks to be on his way out on a free as Allsopp joining is the 4th first choice keeper.
Lorenzo Davids will either be going back to Holland on a permanent or a Loan switch after a dissapointing english impact.
Stephane Zubar is being offered to clubs for free and many League 2 clubs seem interested.

Other than this potential players leaving will be Demouge but Thomas looks like he will be staying until the end of the season at least. Tubbs rumours to Rotherham especially are all fictional and Eddie Howe will keep the player until summer and make the call judging on the seasons success'.



21 Jan 2013 00:50:11
Charlton athletic are looking to sign out of favour luke young from QPR! Also Chris Powell is thought to be interested in bringing in Daniel Redmond from Wigan if the money offered is enough to entice Wigan to recall the player from Hamilton! Going the other way is said to be bwp to either Bournemouth or notts county and Danny Hollands to Swindon for a fee of around 225k

Swindon are in financial trouble so unless Hollands is a free transfer this will not happen

Seeing as Swindon are skint and on the verge of administation, that seems unlikely.

I think you mean Doncaster NOT Swindon!! Apart from that, I have also heard of the other 3 and think Redmond would be a quality signing for our midfield

Charlton are stoney broke and need to offload players quickly so won't be buying anyone just getting in loans.

Hollands won't sign for Swindon as he picked up a nasty injury on Saturday that will keep him out many weeks.

I don't think Swindle have £2-25 let alone £225k LOL

Danny Redmond isn't at Hamilton. (not yet anyway!)

STFC aren't close to Administration, they don't have money to spend and signing Hollands won't happen, however a extension of his loan is on the cards.

Swindon on the verge of administration I think you have read what the chairman if Swindon has said

Again no they aren't on the verge of administration, they are in the same position as any other club who have no debts to anyone like HMRC or other clubs. Former chairman Jeremy Wray is seeking legal action over slander and lies, as in Swindon on the verge of admin. They are simply up for sale and a very marketable position with one of the best managers in the country, in a team that has scored 19 goals in the last 6 games and conceded only 1 goal.

The reported 13 mil is a little exaggerated but the club was in around 8-9 million in debt so the current consortium cleared that. And being relegated to Lge 2 that Oxford are in also had a massive financial impact plus PDC's blase spending spree last season.

On a different note Bristol Rovers have expressed a interest in Paul Benson.

The new owners have said that they want to buy Swindon with al its current players and that includes Hollands so a deal is likely.



21 Jan 2013 00:43:06
Barnsley are wanting to sign Leeds striker Davide Somma on loan

21 Jan 2013 08:00:25
No he hasn't! Our current forward line destroyed Leeds, why would we need one of their reserves?

Good job the result against Leeds will keep you up...oh wait! He's a decent striker..



20 Jan 2013 23:50:17
