Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Speaking to Gordon Strachan on Monday morning at Celtic Park, I asked him what he had planned for the Summer and he said "It's going to be a very exciting Summer, probably the most exciting in the Clubs history"

Good to hear that, at least now we know there will be a few good signings!

I expect going by Rumours, and scouts/ manager seen at matches that we will move for:

Darren Barr - £500k, FalKirk

Michal Kadlec - £750k, Sparta Prague

Michael Lamey - Free, PSV

Alou Diarra - £2. 5m, Lyon

Telfer - Free

Balde - £250k

Lennon - Free

Chinede Ogbuke (striker for Lyn Oslo) -Arsenal 5 mil


Rumour has it Arsenal have already struck a deal with Ajax for Ryan Babel - to be around 8mil.


Celtic are looking at Cruz Azul's prolific Argentinian striker Cesar Delgado. He was due to be out of contract in the summer, but signed a one year extension with Cruz earlier in the season, however, this was before he became aware of European interest. He may be prized away from Cruz with a bid in the region of £1-2 million.

Celtic Rumours


out: Jarosik - Sparta Prague (swap)

Gravesen - Everton, Man U, Newcastle (2m)

Miller - Newcastle, Everton, Sunderland (1m)

Zurawski - Wolfburg (1. 5m)

Beattie - Hibernian (500k)

Marshall - Hibernian (750k)

Balde - Nates (250k)

in: Schaars - AZ Alkmar (2m)

Kadlec - Sparta Prague (swap)

Sidwell - Reading (free)

Bellamy - Liverpool (5m)

O'Shea - Man United (2. 5m)

Makaay - Bayern Munich (2m)

Anyone heard any Marseille rumours plZ?

There is no chance of Everton signing SWP becuase pompey will. They will aslo sign two strikers and an attacking middfielder, maybee a left back aswell

Pompey Ins/ SWP, Sidwell, Yakubu, Nugent, Barry

Outs/ Troure, Stefanovic, Ashdown

Just to clear a few things up, firstly Robbie Keane is Martin Jols 1st choice striker along with berbatov so no way would he sign for Celtic for only £5m and as for kris boyd to Fulham for £2. 5m, Rangers rejected a bid of around £6m last summer so he will be staying unless a bigger bid from a much bigger club than Fulham come in for him. Also 2 years ago when Bellamy was going to Celtic the manager was Martin o'Neil not wgs get your facts right

Celtic ins:

McCarthy £250k

whittiker £1. 75m

also look for some young players and a gk to replace boruc as well as a striker


Miller £1m

graveson £2m

boruc £6m

Nakamura £7m

Rite as I said in december Liverpool will sign Voronin from Leverkusen that has been confirmed so why would Rafa spend over 20 mill on a new striker? he won't (not until January anyway) expect Liverpool to sign Amauri from Palermo for 15 mill and then expect the other signings to be a lot lower fees loans or youth players. Sebastian Leto will be the 1st young player 2 come in he will cost £1. 85 mill from FC Lanus and Gary Mackay Steven has signed from Ross county on a bosman Dean Bouzanis will be signed from Institute of Sport in Australia and loaned out to Sydney until he gets a Work Permit. Expect to see all the recent young players in the Carling Cup next season these include: Gabi Palletta, Dani Padelli, Nabil El Zhar, Ronald Huth, Emiliano Insua, Fran Duran and Jordy Brouwer.

Have heard that if Watford go down, which seems likely, Ben Foster may go to Rangers on loan next season due to the friendship of Walter Smith and Fergie. this would give him continued experience and possible European football. also heard that Darren Fletcher may go in a reduced transfer fee. Paul Scholes has allegedly going to retire at the end of next season and become either a youth team coach / scout or give up the game completely and enjoy his family. Finally Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes will be replaced ( not really possible ) by Nani, Rooney (playing deeper), Hargreaves and a possible audacious bid for Joe Cole ( injured or playing in reserves sorry "rotting in" reserves.

Celtic are ready to sell Shunsuke Nakamura for 4mill with Daisuke Matsui coming in as a replacement to keep the asian market how I know this is I work as an advertisment agent for the asian tv sports network star tv

- the worm has spoken-

I missed out Sno from the Celtic team above

Newcastle United Outs:

Luque - PSG - 1. 5 Million

Emre - B. Munich - 6 - 8 Million

Carr - Celtic - 1 - 1. 5 Million

Pattinson - Release

Babayaro - 1 - 1. 5 Million

Contract Renewals

Df Bernard - Doubtful hasn't been fit since signing in summer 2006

Df Bramble - Doubtful - not doing the job

Df Moore - Doubtful - injuries

Gk Srnicek - Doubtful - only brought in to cover injuries

Md Sibierski - 1 year extension

DF Edgar - 1 year extension

Df Solano 2 year contract

Df Oguchi Loan made permanent 2 year contract

Newcastle United In:

Df - A. Ferdinand - 6 Million

Df - W. Bridge - Loan/ 4. 5 Million

Df - Woodgate - 12 Month Loan

Md - Babel - 6 Million

Fd - Ashdon - 8 Million

Total Spending approx 24 Million with players (10 - 12 Million) and sponsorship revenues covering the costs - Northern Rock issue Newcastle United with Interest Free loans when purchasing players this was part of the sponsorship agreement.

However the Bable deal could be a exchange loan deal for 12 months with Luque. If players impress then would exchange moneys agreed.

And just like to add who ever thinks that NUFC will get money for Bramble is barking up the wrong tree. He is a fee agent at the end of the season and because of age, Newcastle wouldn't recieve compensation.

Other Premiership Main Targets:

Arsenal - Ribery - 9 Million

Aston Villa - Bellemy - 6 Million

Blackburn - Nugent - 7 Million

Bolton - L. Neill - 2 Million

Charlton - Relegated

Chelski - Prob's everybody half decent

Everton - Bellemy - 6 Million

Fulham - Bent - 5 Million

Liverpool - Villa - 18 Million

Man City - Alan Smith - 4. 5 Million

Man Utd - Hargreaves - 15 Million

Middlesboro - Upson - 4 Million

Newcastle - see above

Portsmouth - A. Ferdinand - 6 Million

Reading - Reo Coka - 3 Million

Sheffield Utd - Blake - 1. 5 Million

Spurs - Barnes - 7 Million

Watford - relegated

West Ham - relegated

Wigan - Anelka - 6 Million

Hey guys. Are all these rumours about Carlito Tevez coming to United? Did Fergie watch him in Blackburn's game against West Ham? Tevez is starting to adapt in the English Lifestyle and he has started to play good football. If he is coming to United then all we Man Utd fans must be excited! What I heard about transfer rumours in general:

A. Robben 23m to Barcelona

Nani 11m to Man Utd

Reyes 14m to Atletico Madrid

Babel 15m to Arsenal

Ribery 17m to Arsenal

Deco 17m to Chelsea

Havard Nordtveit to either Man Utd or Arsenal for 2m

C. Ronaldo is going nowere

Huntelaar and heitinga might come to Old Trafford but both of them are targets for Arsenal, Liverpool, Milan and Tottenham

The bigger summer transfer is going to arrive to san siro. The chosen one will be Ronaldinho for about 68m!

Trust me!


LCFC Rumours:

The manager next season won't be Newal (spelling), it will be Keegan, I have inside information that confirms this.

Next, LCFC will try and bring in out of favour Premiership striker Teddy Sheringham, as WHU are on the way down anyway, teddy feels that Leicester are about to shoot back up so he wants to join in on Millan's plans.

They will try and bring in another experienced striker in the form of Robbie Fowler, although he is more likely to join the MSL next season.

Also expect Hinkley United to become a feeder club to Leicester when Millan's plan starts to work.

100% true, as usual :D


Gillingham's Matthew Jarvis to transfer on free to Nottingham Forest after rejecting a renewed contract.

Dan the man is an idiot.


Firstly to the numerous Chelsea fans who maren'tain Mourinho will be at Stamford Bridge next season. YOU ARE COMPLETELY WRONG AND I THINK YOU KNOW IT. Jose's relationship with Abramovic is crumbling by the day and it is no secret to those in the know in the football world that Roman is looking for Jose's replacement. Expect Rijkaard to take over as the tabloids rightly suggest. This will see one or two Barca players joining him, sorry not Ronaldinho or Xavi or Messi, but most likely Deco or (wait for it. ) GudJohnsen. Chelsea have missed his intelligent passing and running and are keen to end his Barca nightmare.

BUT THE BIGGEST RUMOURS COMING Out OF STAMFORD BRIDGE IS THE DESTINATION OF FRANK LAMPARD WHO WILL SENSATIONALLY MOVE TO RIVALS LIVERPOOL I know this seems far-fetched but this comes straight from the Anfield corridors of power. Don't expect to hear anything on this till Mourinho is showed the door which will be at the end of the season or when they get knocked out of the Champs League. SOrry Chelsea fans, future's not looking rosey

MR Realism

FalKirk will bring in the following players in the summer

GK-Kasper Schmeichel (Man C)

CD-Scott Cuthbert (Celtic)

CD-Armand Traore (Arsenal loan)

CD-Alfie Kamara (Arsenal)

MD-Sammy Moore (Ipswitch)

MD-Richard Cole (West Ham)

MD-Tomasz Cywka (Wigan)

ST-James Vaughan (Everton)

ST-Osman Suma (Ajax)

ST-Michael McGlinchey (Celtic)


To the guy who said: "The rumour that Mourinho is leaving is not true so that settles that arguement. " The fact that you said it's not true settles absolutely nothing. If you're able to ignore all the signs, fights, arguments, team unrest, interest from Real, his ridiculous comments, questionable tactical decisions, and the nominal play, then you truly are deluded. Mourinho IS leaving for Real Madrid and Chelsea will be better for it. A new manager may get the team to play as well as their salaries indicate they should. Also, you mispelled argument.

Aston Villa will be signing Sidwell on a free from Reading, unless Reading get into Europe. He's already stated that he doesn't want a move to Scotland. Bardsley will be signed for £2m, Man United are looking for alternative options as to who will fill Neville's shoes when he's too old. MON will shell out around £6m for Reo Coker whether West Ham stay up or not. Also Liverpool may offload Bellamy to Aston Villa, as Rafa Benitez is now looking for world class strikers to lead his front line. Expect a fee of around £8m. On the way out this summer will be Samuel (Free), Delaney (Free), Hendrie (Free), Djemba Djemba (£300k), Angel (£2m) .

These dealings are 90% likely to happen, with a few more signings likely to be made.

LCFC Rumours:

Leicester will swoop for seasoned striker Neil Mellor. Expect this move to happen in the summer when Millan and KEEGAN are in charge of LCFC.
