David Moyes now looks sure to flog Andy Johnson after strong rumours that he is looking at CSKA Moscow's Brazilian forward Jo, with the fee looking to be around £18 million pounds. However we should not let Johnson go for any less than £8 million. I do not think Owen will come to Everton in the Summer as Everton would not be able to afford the ridiculous amount of wages that Owen is demanding (85k) when he does not even play. I believe he is more interested in running his horse complex in Cheshire than playing football. Moyes may try and strengthen his options down the right side. He may opt for the highly expereinced Cosmin Contra now of Getafe with a short term contract. Also he may splash the cash for the talented Joaquin of Valencia (13 million approx. ) As I believe all Valencia'stars will not settle for no European football next year. The final big star Moyes will 100 percent sign in the Summer is Zenit star Andrei Ashravin (8.5 million) When Everton beat Zenit 1–0 in this years UEFA Cup Ashravin was very impressed with what he saw at Goodsion Park and stated that when he moves in the Summer to England, Everton are at the top of his list. Generally Moyes will bring in a lot of top talent and try to generate a squad big enough to compete with the top four and get rid of the mediocre players. Watch out for David Moyes craftiness in the transfer market he really is a footballing genius.

True Blue 2008

  Stoke are about to sign Danny higginbotham, Leroy Lita and take andriy Shevchenko on season long loan from Chelsea

  West Bromwich will poach Ricardo fuller from Stoke City

  Forest will miss out on Earnshaw but will sign Sheff United's Billy Sharp for £1.5 Mill, also on Calderwoods list is Derby's David Jones for £1 Mill, Dave Nugent Swap Deal with Junior Agogo, Kasper Schmeical will Snub Forest but Carlisle will let Kieran Westwood leave for £1 Million.

  Sunderland Afc

Keane want only 5 or six players and the new signings will be for ann different positions. Keane also stated he will be looing for experence, so look out for Man United players and other players Keane has played or knows a lot about as as per history he buys players he knows a lot about.

Look out for






  Norwich City FC have been handed down a championship warchest of £11 million to try and get promoted

it is thought the only club to have more money than the Canaries next season would be Queens Park Rangers

glenn Roeder has seemed to not taken well to this news, this is due to added pressure on his shoulder and more expectations for next season

he will have one season at the helm and possibly two if the team was to stay down after close shave

i understand that Norwich are chasing the following players for transfer

Martin Taylor 800 k

jon stead 700 k

Freddy Eastwood £1.5 million

wes hollohannan 500 k

David Jones £1 million

Aaron mclean £1 million

Chris Brunt £2 million

they will save the rest of the cash to purchase loan/perm signs like Stoke completed last season

  Why does it only ever seem to be Liverpool fans on this website? Anyway Atletico Madrid did not qualify for champs league as they finishedfifth in the league.

NUfc rumours


Duff is on his way out after his house was put up for sale, Smith if the offer is good enough (please somebody take him.), Milner if the offer is good enough to Middlesbrough or Villa maybe Blackburn if Bentley leaves, Ameobi and maybe emre


Turan £11 million,

Veloso (Unlikely) £14 million,

Diane £6 million,

Cuellar £10 million,

Arshavin £9 million,

Bids likely to be put in for these players as well as Gomis, Moutinho, Kompany and Van buyten but these bids will fail. Also 3 or 4 French, Italian and Spanish youth players to be brought in for the future.

Everton have a £20 million budget this Summer so cannot afford many big names expect to see bids for Jo and Joaquin and a loan offer for Fernandes.

Liverpool have already signed Degen but will not get Aguero, Barry possibly but expect Villa to hold out for too much money.

Sunderland to sign irish or ex–Man United players once again or if they hit the Jackpot they will be both irish and Man United players maybe John O'Shea. Expect bids for doyle, hunt, possibly Duff.

  Grimsby are to sign the following players to prepare for next seasons assault on league two and give the squad a retro feel:

Darren anderton

Michael Ricketts

nick barmby

alan thompson

ian walker

  Everton in and out

Neville – £5 million – Sunderland

Gosling – Loan – Stoke

Wessels – £5 million – Brossia Dourtmand

Vaughan – Loan – West Bromwich

Arteta – £15 million – Sevilla

  Man United

If Manucho does obtain a work permit for next season then expect United to bid for Marcelo Moreno and he will be loaned out as he would also be ineligible for a work permit.

A £15 million package is in place for his club team mate Kerlon with Man United confident he will obtain a work permit as an exceptional talent

Man United called Chelsea's bluff when they backed away from signing Jose Bosingwa as their primary target was Dani Alves.

A deal is in place and will be announced after the final for Cardiff's Aaron Ramsey.

Interest in Miguel Veloso and Micah Richards is genuine. United will only bid for Richards if FC Barcelona sign Dani Alves

Everton are seriously interested in signing Darren Fletcher.

Saha, Silvestre, Pique, Evans, Dong, Eagles and Martin will definitly be offloaded

Fraizer Campbell, Tomasz Kuszczak and Danny Simpson will be available for season long loans in the Premier League.

  Afc breaking news. the big experienced centre back Wenger was talking about, is Sotoiris KyrgiAkos of entreicht Frankfurt. he is 6ft4in and on a free transfer. goonerboy

  I can tell you that Damien Duff is not on his way out of Newcastle.

It was reported that his house in Morpeth is actually up for sale, leading to a belief that he's set to leave NUfc. In actual fact, he's planning to build a new property near to his current residence, and has already acquired the land.

This could also lead to the reports of the imminent arrival of Arda Turan being fabricated in order to secure the player a move to a European club following this Summers Euros.

Also, the move for Carlos Cuellar could progress once Rangers season has finished. Smith has been unwilling to discuss the move whilest his team are still in with a shout of the title and cup.

Finally, and possibly most unbelievable is a move for Kenwyne Jones of Sunderland. Although unlikely, Newcastle have made initial contact.


  Well according to some David Beckham is to sign for Derby, Christain Veiri is moving to Hull, Luton Shelton is to acquire his parent club a humungus ££6 million from the pockets of Liverpool to Sheff United and Zinedane Zidane is going to be the new Queens Park Rangers Manager.

What'sthe point in bothering with the premier next year except to monitor Luton Shelton's progress that is, the Championship will be the place to be.

Anyway I tend to set the record straight.

Firstly having contacts inside the Club, Sheff United could win fairly big in their case against the Hammers with a suprising witness and evidence which has been acquired United officials are confident of winning compensation of that around the £20 million region but also blasting the reputation of a few football heavyweights who need knocking down a peg or to.

Secondly Beattie and Tonge are staying at Bramall Lane and are willing to give it one more year to see if United can gain promotion under Blackwell

Some Blades might be aghast as to some signings and decisions made by blackwell in future as he now has the position he will be more his own man and less tippy toey around fans although he has the best intentions for the club he had a ploy of winning Blades over by "saying a lot of what we want to hear" in order to win back fans and secure a permanent deal. rumours coming out of the camp that deals for Luton, Leeds, Plymouth type players are in the main true make of that what you will, but for one Kisnorbo will not be joining the Club

  Ever banega Everton £5 million

  To the guy who said "Please Enough already

Most of the Liverpool rumours on here are exactly that – rumours. There is no basis for them. "

You're sharp It's a RUMOUR site. The Degen transfer is not 'up in the air' – it is a done deal so that fact you gave us is not fact at all – it is a rumour.

Now for a strong 'rumour' I believe will become fact. I posted it here last week and want to reinforce it. Krancjar will be joining Liverpool from Pompey in a deal involving Peter Crouch. We'll see.

  Watford could sign Kieron Westwood from Carlisle for £650,000 after there failure to get promotion. Watford are also currently scouting Ebbsfleets young forward John Akinde after a number of impressive performances

  To all those people who are saying that Everton will sign foreigners are stupid. How long have you know Moyes to sign a load of foreigners and he will never pay big for a player who has never played in England. Yes he will sign a few but not many. I am a reliable sorce as I have family inside Everton and these are the players we will sign.

Hoyte (£3 mil) (definite)

Gera (free) (definite)

Owen (£9 mil) (more than likely)

There is a shock swap deal aswell with Aj going to the Hammers for Dean Ashton.

  Marcus Stewart is coming to Darlington. I served drinks to him and Dave Penney at Seaham Hall. Both had sparking water. Other bloke there who looked very smart and was on his mobile all the time–I assume he was Stewart's agent.

Would make a great signing and he still has a house in the North East–apparently loved his time here when he was at Sunderland.

Darlo are also rumoured to be looking at Darren Williams.

  Arsenal to get a player from France in the next 72 hours

  Gattuso–AC Milan to Rangers or Newcastle

Deco–FC Barcelona to Juve

  Stoke are planning an audacious bid to land Tottenham duo Darren Bent and jaime o hara for a combined fee of £10.5 million

as Tony pulis looks to strenghten his side he also looks to offload players such as

vincent pericard 200 k to Southampton who he was previously on loan to.

antony pulis loan to Gretna

and Danny pugh to Burnley for 600 k

  Newcastle United will bring in Russians Konstantin Zyrianov and Pavel Pogrebnyak for a combined fee £11 million from UEFA Cup winners Zenit St. Petersburg. The former will be as cover for jailbird Joey Barton, the latter as a long–term replacement for Mark Viduka who Kevin Keegan sees as too injury prone. Emre Belezoglu will go in the opposite direction. Also arriving at Newcastle will be Romanian defender Razvan Rat (£4 million from Shakhtar Donetsk), Carlos Cuellar (£8 million from Glasgow Rangers or in a swap deal involving Alan Smith and Claudio Cacapa), and Hedwiges Maduro (£6 million from Ajax). Nathan Doyle will also arrive for £2 million from Hull City if they lose in the Championship Play–Off Final. There will be a host of players leaving Newcastle: Emre Belezoglu (Zenit St. Petersburg), Damien Duff (Blackburn Rovers), Shay Given (Aston Villa), David Edgar (Stoke City– loan), Shola Ameobi (Fulham) and James Tozer (Swansea City– loan).

  With Portsmouth set to sign Mauro Zarate for £10 million next week, Peter Crouch will be set to replace Dimitar Berbatov at Tottenham and line up alongside Robbie Keane although Chelsea are also interested with Benitez ready to offload for £12 million.

  Jose Mourinho will take over as Inter manager in the coming weeks but agreed with the board that it would be dependent on them signing both Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard from former club Chelsea and both of these moves have been agreed.

  Crystal Palace will sign Leo Fortune West and Clive Platt shortly.

  Huddersfield Town will try and purchase the following players:

Sam Vokes (Bournemouth 350 k): Talks are ongoing but unlikely as Vokes will only move to a more local team.

James Coppinger (Doncaster 200 k). His agent has been in discussion with Huddersfield, but will depend on the play offs

Lee Holmes, just been released by Derby. Wages have been a stumbling block so far but Huddersfield are hopeful of concluding a deal when he comes back from holiday

Jermaine Johnson 200 k. Laws needs funds. JJ could depart and Huddersfield have expressed an interest.

Clayton Donaldson 100 k. Hibernian want rid and he fancies a move nearer to home

Danny Livesey 400 k. Carlisle do not want to sell, but sources close to Brunton Park suggest they may have to sell either him or Danny Graham. Huddersfield desperately want Livesey to shore up their defense

  What is everyone's problem with Liverpool fan's?

It seems you're are always saying that Liverpool fans are in dreamland saying that thay are going to sign big name players, when in actual fact they are more likely to do so than say Aston Villa, as a supposed fan of their's clains that MON is going to sign Thierry Henry for £11. Well you would not get him that cheap in the first place and he would never go to Villa in a million years. You have gotta be off your rocker my son;)

Anyway RealTalk.

Arsenal are not going to sign Samir Nasri, Niko Kranjcar (Going to LFC)

or either or Benzema or Ben Arfa from Lyon (neither want to leave, atleast for another year.)

Chelsea will not sign Dani Alves as they have just splashed out £16.2 million on Bosingwa.

Man United will not sign Berbatov (Going to either Spain or Italy)

But they may well sign Miguel Veloso and Joao Moutinho From Sporting Lisbon, Probably for a combined fee of around £25–30 million

Liverpool will not sign David Villa but there is a good chance that they could sign either David Silva or Joaquin Sanchez (Depends on price and other interested clubs)

Rafa has been given a virtual blank cheque (within reason) despite the obvious unrest in the boardroom, Gillet will sell his shares in the club to DIC after the 90 the period which is currently in place to allow Hicks to try to raise the funds needed to buy his Ex–partner out. After DIC have finalised a deal for Gillet's Shares expect immediate negotiations for Hicks' shares to start, with Hicks trying to hold out for the best possible deal in his interest. No matter what has been said Hicks is in it purely for the profit, of which he has made none thus far, which will act as a further incentive for him to sell.

Liverpool have already signed Philip Degen On a free transfer (signed way back in March)

Liverpool will sign Niko Kranjcar from Portsmouth for around £8–10 million (the creative spark they have been missing)

Rafa will also look to sign two new wingers but will keep Pennant in reserve unless a half decent offer comes in (£4 million+ ) or Villa request him in any deal involving either Gareth Barry or Ashley Young

Players to be shown the door are as follows, Voronin (worst Premier League player ever, next to Titus Bramble), Itandje (nowhere near as good as Rafa thought.), Kewell (the flops out of contract this Summer), and the following will go if a decent offer comes in for any of them, Benayoun (£4 million+ ), Pennant (£4 million+ ), Riise (£4 million+ ), Crouch (£8 million+ ), Guthrie (£3 million+ ), Carson (£5 million+ ). If Rafa manages by some mirical to make this lot dissapear than expect atleast one new signing for each outgoing player, as Rafa prefers his numbers to quality any day.



We all know that Wenger is not big on old players so you can rule out Thuram.

Samir Nasri is practically a done deal and possibly Ben Arfa too. Expect to see Kranjcar at the Emirates next season – that will be the Premiership player that he was talking about. As soon as the Krancjar deal is through, Hleb's off too Inter. Gallas is upset that he's been stripped of his captaincy so might leave, if he does then Lucio is Wenger's ideal replacement. Aquilani will come in to replace Flamini, so Gilberto might leave along with Diaby. Do not be surprised if Van Persie leaves, if he does Henry will be back, if not a younger player less experienced player. Adebayor will not go anywhere if Henry comes back. Expect to see Bendtner out on loan and Carlos Vela and Theo Walcott breaking their way into the first team.


Caros Vela – Back from loan

Samir Nasri – Done deal

Hatem Ben Arfa – More than likely

Niko Krancjar – Nearly Done

Thierry Henry – Possibly if Robin Van Persie goes

Lucio – Maybe

Alberto Aquilani – More than likely


Aleksander Hleb – Done deal

William Gallas – 50–50

Robin Van Persie – More than likely

Bendtner – Out on loan

Gilberto – 50–50

Diaby – More than likely

Trust me, I am being realistic here. Expect to see most of these deals happen or at least be attempted.

  Premier League new boys–

Stoke are eager to sign an unnamed Frenchman who has been part of Pulis's scouting trip in France. He ahs already turned down a player who was supposedly the 'New Drogba' but is now considering making an offer for another player instead.

West Bromwich are willing to let Kevin Phillips leave for Queens Park Rangers if they recieve a big offer from them. They have also been chasing players abroad and have a scout in Hungary, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

Relegated Premier League teams–

Birmigham, Reading and Derby are all to get rid of at least five players at the end of July. Derby have amde the whole team available for transfer with teams such as: Port Vale, Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Coventry City already jumping on the bandwagon for players.

  Afc rumors: Arsene looking at Wheater/Dunne to plug the goals we leaked crucially last term. No forwards coming in. He has stated that Vela is coming back from loan and will be considered as a forward (AW thinks he's an Eduardo type). A creative player to come in. Most likely to be Nasri. A Flamini replacement is also being lined up. Could be a relative unknown. Also do not rule out Aquilani coming in. Arsene had bid for him previously and failed. Aquilani's agent has stated an interest from Afc. Could be a ploy to hike up his wages though: ). THATS it fellas. Arsenal to rule in the 08/09 season. Will be a vintage season. Cheers.

  Info from a fairly reliable source, (told me about Torres and Babel before anyone had a sniff).

Rafa has money to spend this Summer, not loads but some (approx £20 million apparently) and will also be allowed to keep all funds from outgoing players.

He will look to sell –

Crouch – offers of £10 million will be accepted

Voronin – £2.5 million offer from German team, thought to be Schalke.

Pennant – offer of £6 million on the table from mid–table English team

Riise – plenty of suitors, offers of £5+ million accepted

Finnan – will be allowed to leave for £3 million

Carson – Will move to Villa for £6 million

Itandje – Will move to Bordeaux for £2.5 million

this makes an approx. total of £35 million from sales so £55 million total.

He will look to sign –

Dossena – Tough tackling LB – £7 million, Udinese

Alves – World class RWB – £15 million early bid, take it or leave it contract offer to Alves no bidding war.

Helder Barbosa – Young LW – Free, Porto

Zarate – Att Mid/St. – £5 million for season on loan with extra Clause of £10 million to make deal permanent

Silva – LW/CAM – £15 million bid lodged, same as Alves take it or leave it offer.

Guiza – ST – £10 million back up for Torres.

Barry will only be signed if Alonso ASKS for transfer or Silva deal falls through.

As I said these deals may or may not happen, but my source seems confident most will go through, with Zarate deal almost complete, Dossena, Barbosa and Silva's people have been contacted and bids are imminent for Alves and Guiza. Rafa want deals sorted before Euro's so prices do not rocket up and all players can report back together for pre–season training.

  Hearts will apoint Craig levein as there new manager and he will bring wilkie, hunt, kerr

  I have just come back from FC Barcelona on business and huge amount of speculation that Chelsea will get Rikjard AND Messi to link with Ten Cate again. Expect shocking world record bid before euro 2008, RA wants to put down marker and FC Barcelona not expected to be able to resist even though he is a god there.

  Nasri to Arsenal for £12 million and Hleb out for £14 million

  Hearts FC. Jim Jefferies will be announced new Hearts manager shortly before the team travel to Europe for their pre–season training camp. He will work alongside Stephen Frail. He was the number 3 target after Mark McGhee who met representatives of Hearts on two occasions but could not reach a Mutual agreement regarding the boards say in team matters. While this is going to be drastically reduced the board still wish to take care of signings/sales and Craig Levein who turned down the possibility of rejoining Hearts outright while Vladamir Romanov remains at the club. Peter Houston will take over the reins at Rugby Park. This is confirmed by a close family friend of Frail.

  I heard a shocking rumour from cousin that lives in Madrid he has saidthe big story going around this morning is that Man United are doing a deal with FC Barcelona which will see Pique £6 million and Saha £6 million and £18 million total £30 million and will see ronaldhino finally going to United and also that Eto'o will be going to Arsenal not Tottenham. the deal will be struck after the Champions League final and ronaldhino will be in Manchester Wednesday for a medical.

  Man United Rumours

Sir Alex will defo bring in 4 or 5 top quality signings. These include

Daniel Alves

Miguel Veloso

Joao Moutinho

Giovani Dos Santos (if City are interested)

and one of Marcelo Moreno, Berbatov, Huntelaar, Fabiano

Expect Moreno to sign pre contract 4 2009/2010 season.

Also expect bids for Micah Richards and Kerlon to be unsuccessful.

Also Karim Benzema will not be joining United. or Barcelona. or Milan. or anyone. He has already said he is staying one more year in France.

Expect Gerard Pique, tomas Kuszack, park Ji Sung, jonny evans and Dong to all leave the club in the Summer. ß

Rafa will speak to agents for Heinze, Joaquin, and Villa. mark my words. JACK.
