{Ed022's note - brand new player profile on Lewandowski of Borussia Dortmund. Very highly rated Polish striker with an impressive goal-scoring record this season. - Thanks all. By the way, I'm not the original Ed022, get the hell over it.}(6)(3)That genuinely made me laughI hear he could be going to Ipswich to link up with the keeper target Kuszczak, Town need someone who can find the back of the net on a regular basis.

Oh Fook I've just woke up lol

21 Apr 2012 21:01:41
Reading are set to sign:

1. Scott Sutter - RB playing for Young Boys in Switzerland, apparently this one is nearly a done deal.

2. Jacob Butterfield - Barnsley creative midfielder. McDermott a big admirer.

3. Lewis Dunk - Brighton CB. Promising young player.

Also, Gylfi Sigurdsson is off to Arsenal. Reading hoped to bring him home but he was always destined for the top four and Royals will receive a 30% sell-on from Hoffenheim.(21)(15) 

Dunk - Rubbish, IF he's found not guilty then he'll only be going to a top half prem team not Reading.


21 Apr 2012 20:59:01
Birmingham City have a 3m shortfall in their accounts, hence being unable to post them this week. A 10 point deduction is coming up!(21)(16)Points deductions come from administration

A loss of £3m would trigger administration at a small club potentially but as long as they have sufficient cash - no problemWhen, this season or next, could Boro or Hull make the play offs then?Only when they seek administration and that is not close

If they fail to file accounts - that will be a fine / censure - but the league do not have the authority to deduct points for a technical matter like a failure to file accounts on time


21 Apr 2012 18:04:29
Dicanio will leave Swindon at the end of season,he did drop players due to drink problems,yet it may be just an excuse to resign and move to his beloved West Ham.It's on the card so all this talk about push for promotion is garbage.
Swindon will apoint Cotrell from Forrest as soon as he is sacked(9)(31)Not happeningJust a rehash of a post last week.
Please try and keep up on the lies you've already postedWest Ham said that Big Sam will not be sacked even if they fail to go up this season.

Aston Villa-Keane
Man City-Hazard
Man Utd-Modric
Norwich-De Laet
West Brom-Kightley
Wolves-McShane(5)(64)Why would norwich want de laet when they cancelled his contract?!Norwich do not want De Laet, we sent him back as he was a liability.Kightley to the st ? NooooooooMuntari at sunderland again? now I know your full of it, he was terruble for us!What Miller are you saying is going to sign for Fulham? There's tonnes of Millers!
1. Highly doubt it's Kenny Miller or Ishmael, they wouldn't make the grade.^^^ Don't think Wo1ve5 fans are in a position to call any team the st at the minute do you??So every team only gets one player?Everton have told Drenthe to leave after missing training 3 times one before the semi final for which he was dropped

If Watford can get in the region of £3m for Mapps they should take it, not sure if they would want to let Bond go if Loach goes (please)(3)(7)Apparently reading have a clause letting them keep him for another year if they were promoted, wenger wants him to have prem experienceMy sources tell me Taylor won't join Watford as he doesn't want to move South, however Beavon from Wycombe is a possibility due to the two clubs good relationship


21 Apr 2012 10:31:10

Swindon boss Paulo Di Canio is wanting to recruit in the summer but not a lot, as he aims to push Town on into League 1 promotion contention, if they manage promotion out of League 2. The Italian is keen on signing the same players no matter the division they're in and is already set to sign a few.
Di Canio is wanting to make an ambitious bid for Derby defender Gareth Roberts. The former Tranmere and Doncaster left back has recently signed a new contract extension at Pride Park but could be tempted to work under the 43 year old as Town look to have money to spend.
The former Sheffield Wednesday attacker is also expected to raid his old club to bring in Chris O'Grady. The 26 year old striker hasn't featured much under new Wednesday boss Dave Jones and could sign a season long loan deal at Swindon.
Di Canio is set to make his intentions clear by bringing in former Doncaster midfielder Mark Wilson in. The 33 year old only signed for Oxford in January but has impressed the Italian in recent weeks after making four leage appearances.
Di Canio is set to bring another two strikers into the club to join O'Grady.
The first attacker wanted is Polish international Marcin Robak. The 29 year old has impressed in the second division of Turkey and is subject of a bid from Swindon.
The second in question is Torquay forward Rene Howe. Howe has done superb this season, scoring 12 goals for the play off chasers. Di Canio is keen on making an offer around £100,000 for the former Bedford attacker.(2)(14)


21 Apr 2012 08:30:38
Watford legend heidar helguson has him self said never say never in returning back to Watford in the future(14)(6)This is true actually. If QPR stay up this season, both H and Tommy Smith will sign for Watford next season.

20 Apr 2012 19:38:07
Emmanuel Ledesma is interesting numerous clubs two favourites are: Brentford and Carlisle(5)(8)There's a sniff that Notts County are interested too.David Groff - ex-Notts & Walsall goalie - still has some Hungarian friends here in Nottm and has passed on glowing reports to Notts' set- up. He looks too good for League One struggles and could link up with Keith Curle once again.


20 Apr 2012 19:37:27
Stockport county to sign adam rundle , sean canham, richard taundry and leighton mcgivern in order to steer them to league 2(3)(6)


20 Apr 2012 18:19:13
Pompey fan here, strong rumours that if we stay up in the Championship then there is a buyer very interested in buying us, probable why our proformances have improved recently. PUP PPU(4)(46)You won't stay up,you're doomed I tell ye,
doomed.PUP = pay up Pompey.But - you are down - it would need a set of freak results - so if this buyer will only buy if you stay up - then forget it. It is over - you have cheated enough.Bye bye pompey , pompey bye byeI understand the potential buyer pulled out, stating there was only scrap at Fratton Park-but I could have misheard the first part of that!Pay up Pompey!One team usually pulls themselves out of trouble and one team drops into the mire to take their place.Unfortunately u won't be staying up !! Can't keep buying players when you've got no money. Who in their right mind would want to buy them anyway. Only get average 13,000 fans at home games still have players on 30k a week the maths means only one thing that any money invested by a said new owner will be evaporated extremely quickly.
Other clubs worth investing in are:
notts county

all have similar crowds without players on ridiculous wages.

Hope you have a great time in league 1 next season pompey because you'll be in league 2 the year after bye byeI know the guy that started the rumour....he's from Gosport, a life long Pompy fan and has just won the Lottery....he said he was going to buy the club......I told him to spend his £10 on something more usefull like a McDonalds.Pompey will complete the greatest of all escapes, you watch, shut all you scummers up. Pompey are and always will be the greatest team in the South PUPPompey probably will not stay up but expect them back in the Championship within one or two seasons. Good luck for the future Pompey!Staying up ur having a laugh no chancePompey are down
Yours sincerely


20 Apr 2012 17:54:19
Jason Pearce will be the first signing in may. source : Who?Who you on aboat say the team dipstickIts to leedsI am original poster. Yes, Leeds united.Can see Pearce doing very well at leeds and becoming a fan's favourite. Although Pompey are struggling, expect he will still cost around £1.25m though. Anything less is a real bargain.He's a Local Lad and wont want to move that far away, i think Brighton might be a bit more practical, well see now pompey are relegated to Div 1, i think there will be a mass exodus out of pompey now, plus they still might get liquidated, come June 2nd we will see


20 Apr 2012 15:56:21
Bristol City to sign Murray Davidson from St Johnstone(12)(3)


20 Apr 2012 15:48:40

20 Apr 2012 15:36:24
portsmouth fc concentrating on keeping some of their best players such as : joel ward, aaron mokoena,tal ben haim,hayden mulins(returning from loan)ricardo rocha
and jamie ashdown
portsmouth fc also want to sign players from the academy, so spend less money and there will be a reasonable team, mixing experience and youth(7)(24)Hhahahha clutching at straws or what "we are keeping are best players" it doesn't even look like your be a club next season get real you will be selling everyone you can to pay off as much as you can at a minimumPompey need to release Ben Haim, Mokoena, and Mulluns as due to a lack of Forsight by Peter Storrie, they are on premiership wages which are unsustainable if Pompey are to continue as a going concernEven if a miracle happens and PFC stay in the Championship and in business, why would they want to keep players on huge wages (Ben Haim £36000pw, Mokoena £15000pw, Mullins £13000pw)? Stupid post with no foundations.As a leeds fan really feel for you ground a proper club with proper fans!Does nobody in Portsmouth understand simple maths?
You have spent money you did not have, you have spent other peoples money you will never pay back and you still think that you can still spend stupid amounts for players salaries? If they are really able to justify those sort of salaries do you think they will stay for League 1 football and continuing doubts about if and when they will get paid?If you wriggle out againthis
you ll be in the same position in
two years time still owing millions
bye bye pompey tick tock
down tomorrow yeeeeeessssssGood luck Pompy!TBH and mokoena will most def be off, along with the likes of Varney, Mullins, Lawrence, etc, etc. Frtunately Pompey do have some excellent academy players. If they could keep Ward, Pearce and Futacs to add to those, would expect a promotion challenge year 1 if, as likely, we are relegated. However, could take longer as I fear ward and Pearce will be sold too.There all gone

no 1 will hang aroundMost if not all of those will go. Last thing we need is players on high salaries. Rebuild with our academy & lower league players who want to play for the shirt not for the final pay day. Ben Haim & Mokoena prove that we have been spending beyond our means & stupid wages (and they are woeful). Anyway bring on relegation, new teams to play & we can rebuild our club sensibly.


20 Apr 2012 15:26:01
Tom Ince is interesting Fulham and Stoke(15)(15)


20 Apr 2012 15:09:07
Readings in ans outs

Andy Johnson-Free(out of contract)-Fulham
Keiran Richardson-2M-Sunderland
Kevin Doyle-4M

Antonio-600K-Shefield Wednesday(22)(13)Are you on drugs? richardson from sunderland 2m? try at least 6-7m, reading promoted and think they can get better players for cheap no chancePoor Reading fans , John Madejski himself said he would not be buying marque or or adding much to the current squad.Google it for yourself if you think I am lying.And you think a player who cant touch the field for sunderland and an aging andy johnson are considerd marquee?! what world do you live on! its been in the papers, its not like hes making it up... foolsYou wouldn't get richardson for less than 5milRichardson has been injured, he played left back last game and has played left back most this season so 6-7m would be right, arsenal put in a cheeky loan bid in for him in jan but we told them money only, andy johnson doesnt get a game for fulham but he won't go to a newly promoted team, doyle won't go back to reading he will go to someone like fulham, sunderland, everton ect...Sheffield wednesday dont have £600, let alone £600.000.I hope we sign Doyle


20 Apr 2012 14:36:56
Notts County are set to offer Portsmouth striker Benjani a 1 year deal. The powerful frontman is out of contract at Fratton park in the summer and is looking to stay in England.(9)(13)Benjani is no longer fit enough to be a threat.Injuries have taken their toll I am afraid.How can they offer a new contract? from what i hear they still have no money! I think that they will rely on loaning players and using their youth/reserves. That is if they don't go into liquidation and start as a new club in the conference south league!! pmsl


20 Apr 2012 12:50:54
Reading are set to make Fulham foward Andy Johnson their first signing,he is out of contract in the summer and Reading will need to fight QPR for his signature.Reading are also after Keiran Richarson who is also likely to join.Shane Long and Gyfil Sidurdson could be on their way back.And Phillips should also join.(24)(22)


20 Apr 2012 12:04:57
to the people guessing the manager that ex Bournemouth and west ham your saying harry redknaapp think closer to home = carl fletcher(5)(8)Carl has all but kept Argyle up, he is going no where when he has a club that at least has the base to be a consistant championship club.


20 Apr 2012 11:19:03
Chris Powell is eager to bolster his strikeforce for the Addicks first season back in the Championship, so Jeff Schlupp will join Charlton on loan from Leicester for the season in July. Pearson rates the youngster, but with Waghorn coming back from injury and the possible signing of Jamie Vardy, there won't be much playing time for Schlupp next season. Pearson would prefer him to go on loan to a Championship club to aid his development and he sees his former assistant Chris Powell as the ideal manager to bring Schlupp on.(6)(7)If Schlupp goes to Charlton I doubt it will be on loan, not in the smmer anyways. A host of clubs are looking at James Vardy so don't count your chickens there, he will be expensive and an unknown qantity at Championship level.Doubt very much schlupp will be going anywhere! He is very much a 1st team player now.



20 Apr 2012 11:10:25
From current rumours my hopeful (but realistic) wish list for Saints 'if' they get into the prem:

- Jay Rod or Jordan Rhodes (Burnley/Hudders)

- Victor Moses (Wigan - if relegated)

- Matty Phillips (Blackpool)

- Roger Johnson (Wolves - relegated)

- Scott Dann (B'burn - if relegated)

-Nat Clyne (Palace)

- Lampard/Ji-Sung Park (Chelsea/M Utd looking to release apparently, but wages will be too big for Saints probably)

- Ali Al-Habsi [sp] (Wigan- if relegated)
- or Robbin Ruiter (FC Volendam)

Would be more than happy with half these signings for some experience and a bit more of a solid spine. Not expecting any to happen though, like I said - these are my 'realistic' but hopeful signings.(8)(48)Lampard? Paahaaaahha.

Saints think they're the big things in football now it looks like they're going up.No we don't. Reasonable post except : (Blackpool - if not promoted) and Lampard's wages defo too big. Unfortunately, i'm old enough to remember Saints stunning the world of football by signing Keegan.And who says Saints fans are arrogantRealistic?Between all the Reading and Southampton fans on here...any player with 2 feet and an agent will be mentioned as a "dead cert" to join. Face it's going to be straight up....straight down, no major signings because your wage bill cant take it. Enjoy the experience, live within your means (Southampton fans take note) and take the £50m and invest for the future....must admit though.....Lampard & ji Sung Park....LMFOAs a Wolves fan you DO NOT WANT Johnson , he has been rubbish all season.This is a wish list nothing more, you read the sun and belivr everything in there will come true. Face facts we ain't even up yet an no saints fan will know who we are signing intill it's on the OS.

But worse even still is the stupidness of some people to tar all saints fans as arrogant when you get one person with a keyboard post his wish list. Grow a brain people no realistic saints fans bellive this ste it's just a kid playing FIFA 12

MoronsLooks like the silly season is now openJay rod or rhodes possible
moses is wanted by liverpool so would never go to southampton
matt phillips wont b sold for a ridiculous fee but could happen but more likely to go somewhere like stoke/ established prem team
johnson and dann are possible but badly underperformed this year
clyne most realistic there as palace are going nowhere atm but could b wrong as dougie seems a good manager
lampard and ji sung park realistic?! in wat sense? they could both play in europe still and i doubt would ever play for any other prem league club, let alone a team who hav a lot to prove, hav mainly championship quality players, not enough pedigree or talent and dont hav european football or the wages.
al habsi probs gonna go west brom if they get relegated as they need a keeperI am a Saints fan and even I am laughing at some of those names! Theres a couple that are realistic, but my god Lampard?! I can see why some people say Saints fans are arrogant, majority are not but there are a few that make us look bad. However we do have money and we could make some big signings which Im sure is a possibility. This is for previous poster, we do live within our means..We have a wage cap and will not break it. We have every chance of staying in the do Reading. There have been plenty of teams that have achieved this over the years.For fooks sake lads come on! I'm a Saints fan but you're just making us look silly now! Lampard really? Your giving us all a reputation so come on, be realistic. Apologies to everyone else who now thinks we are living in dream land!I don't think saints will sign lampard but being realistic if Chelsea are trying to shift him, which is strongly rumoured, where would he end up? He would definitely go to a prem team who are challenging for top half, not impossible for Saints to sign him.

The person who made this list did say it was "hopeful" and that they would be more than happy with on a couple of these signings. People are getting way too keen to slag people off and act all modest, when the original poster never stated he was expecting any of these players to come, and underlined any doubts that the above commenters have made. People getting worked up and trying to have a say for no reason IMO, if this person has a wish list and states it is hopeful but based on current rumours what else do you want? This is a rumours site and the poster isn't making assumptions.Frank Lampard?!

LOL!Lampard f off!!!


20 Apr 2012 10:33:02
Leicester with another bid of around 1m for Vardy(13)(11)


20 Apr 2012 08:44:45
hey ed do you know any leicester ins or outs? {Ed001's Note - nothing new, still the only thing I have heard of is interest in bringing Hobbs back. Still not convinced it is not just an assumption made because Pearson likes him though.}(5)(3)Thanks


20 Apr 2012 10:00:11
blackpool, milwall and burnely have expressed there interest in run away derby striker chris maguire and impressing in his loan spell at pompey(9)(7)


20 Apr 2012 09:56:41
Gary Doherty is set to retire from professional football in the next few week as the Charlton defender wants a career in football coaching. He could continue his football in the non league part time with Wealdstone.(6)(2)


20 Apr 2012 09:54:20
Dagenham & Redbridge have made an offer for Millwall midfielder Chris Hackett in the summer which could take the former Oxford player to Victoria Road on a three year deal.(4)(3)

20 Apr 2012 09:48:01
Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones has been told he will have money to spend in the summer as he looks to bring a number of new player into the club.
Jones is keen on going across Sheffield to sign young defender Terry Kennedy from United. The 18 year old is wanted by a number of Premier League clubs but if Wednesday manage promotion to the Championship and United don't, the deal could happen.
If Wolves do get relegated from the Premier League, Jones may go back to his former club and make an offer for Irish midfielder Stephen Hunt. Hunt is keen on playing in the Premier League but Wednesday feel an ambitious bid will make them contenders to sign other players. The deal will only be made if Wednesday manage promotion.
A player definately coming to Hillsborough is Colchester youngster Jordan Sanderson. The young midfielder agreed contract terms late last night after Wednesday had a undisclosed bid accepted from Colchester.
Finally, Jones is also wanting to sign another player from a Yorkshire rival in Jordan Clark. The 18 year old was wanted by Manchester City last summer and the Barnsley attacker could seal a season long loan switch across South Yorkshire once the campaign ends.(4)(6)Someones been busy writing a load of rubbish about the top 3 in league 1,I love the one about united spending loads of money (get real their millions in debt)
Me thinks someones got to much spare time on their hands.Sad Wednesday fan in dream worldMore like sad blunt making up rubbish to make themselves feel better after todays great result


20 Apr 2012 09:39:08
Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson is set to spend 'a huge' amount of money if the Blades secure promotion back to the Championship and could still spend 'a lot' if they don't.
Wilson is wanting to sign Bristol Rovers forward Matt Harrold. The former Wycome and Southend striker has impressed this season and is ready to make the jump up a level or two.
The defender Wilson is keen on bringing in is Crystal Palace left sided player Jonathan Parr. The Norway international has played 37 times at Selhurst Park this season but could be tempted with a move to Bramall Lane after reportedly being disappointed with how Palace have fallen this season.
Another forward set to link up with United is young Chelsea striker Islam Feruz. Feruz is only 16 but the London club feel he is more than good enough to compete at any level outside the Premier League.
Finally, Huddersfield winger come striker Kallum Higginbotham is subject of an undisclosed bid from their Yorkshire rivals after Town boss Simon Grayson stated the 22 year old will not feature in his plans next season.(1)(17)Sounds like HUGE AMOUNTS all loans or freebies already 30+ millions in debt could end up like Pompey IF start spending daft money?


20 Apr 2012 09:30:39
Charlton manager Chris Powell is set to be given around £3 million in the summer to spend on possibly targeting another promotion push, but this time in the Championship. Three deals are very close to being struck in the next week as Powell looks to keep most of his squad.
Leyton Orient midfielder Dean Cox is subject of a bid from Powell as the former Brighton winger looks for football in the Championship. Cox has attracted a lot of sides in the last few months with some very good performances and could cost around £350,000.
Norwich youngster Tom Adeyemi has been told he can leave Carrow Road if someone offers around £250,000 for the 20 year old and Powell feels he would make a good signing after being impressed with Adeyemi whilst on loan at Oldham this season.
Finally, Powell is set to make an ambitious bid for Leicester player Ben Marshall. The 21 year old only joined City in January from Stoke but Athletic feel if they set out enough ambition this year, Powell could bring in a number of players who 'wouldn't usually come'.(0)(18)Ben Marshall? Are you having a laugh? We have only just got him, he is very much part of the plans and has started very well for us.Not a chance on earth your getting marshallWith the club still 35 million in debt and repayments on loans due to resume once the Championship is reached it is difficult to see where 3 million will come from. Or is it, looking into the mystery world of who owns Charlton one could be forgiven for thinking that there is an awful lot of Middle Eastern money behind them!What after having new owners which the deal was to clear that debt do that's sorted and if reports are correct and kevin cash is the behind the scenes owner then we have plenty of money to spend exspecially with the directors having trust in Powell after bringing in 24 players and jelling them together to win league one.Mugged if you pay 350k for Cox. Released by Brighton, can be great on his day but gets muscled out far too easily and will never make it in the Championship.I doubt Tom Adeyemi will be sold by Norwich in the summer, at least not until he has joined in pre-season training folr Lambert to assess his ability to complete in next years squad, a young talent that if and when sold will fetch a lot more than £250K

Preston boss Graham Westley is wanting to make former Liverpool midfielder Damien Plessis his first signing of the summer on a free transfer from Greek side Panathinaikos.(4)(9)The Guy couldnt even get in the Doncaster team thats just been relegated and has scored just 1 goal in 3 years......Perfect player for PNE

Greek club Panetolikos are set to sign Fabien Robert from French club Lorient as the 23 year old looks to turn down Doncaster Rovers.(4)(10)

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is keen on bringing Derby forward Chris Maguire to Bloomfield Road after being impressed with the former Aberdeen striker whilst on loan at Portsmouth.(12)(12)


20 Apr 2012 09:12:23
West Brom have recieved a bid from Ipswich Town for young midfielder Scott Allan for a season long loan bid next season. Paul Jewell feels the Scotland under 21 player will benefit their promotion push for next year.(6)(10)Ipswich are not rearly interested in loan signings, as this disrupts the team if the player gets recalled, as proved with the two keepers we had on loan, so PJ is only interested in signing plaers not loanees"player will benefit their promotion push for next year." He'd better go somewhere else then!Well said above poster, ipswich nowhere near good enough to go up . They will have to battle to stay were they are


20 Apr 2012 09:10:40
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is close to signing five players in the summer and will still try and pursue the deals no matter the division their in.
Allardyce is keen on signing Leeds midfielder Danny Pugh. The former Stoke and Preston left sided player only joined United in January but feels he has more chance of playing in the top flight again in London. Leeds boss Neil Warnock is expected to listen to offers for Pugh as he plans a massive overhaul at Elland Road.
Allardyce is also keen on bringing a goalkeeper into The Boleyn Ground to provide more competition with England stopper Rob Green. It is thought that former Colchester keeper Dean Gerken is already in talks with United over a possible one year deal from Bristol City.
The 57 year old has made a bid for England under 21 international winger Cameron Stewart from league rivals Hull City. The East Yorkshire club are not willing on selling the 21 year old but could be tempted if West Ham bid around £5 million.
The fourth deal could be Irish defender Damien Delaney. The former Hull and QPR player is keen on a move away from Portman Road and Allardyce sees it as a possibly good deal due to his experience of winning promotions.
Finally, 18 year old forward Miguel Medina is thought to be the last possible deal after he trained with the club from Italian outfit Udinese. The Serie A club are willing to let the Paraguayan out on loan for the season.(4)(14)And what about Henderson who Sam signed from Pompey, how many keepers does he want, and as for Delaney moving away from Ipswich, i cant see that happening unless Ipswich get at least another two centre backs in the summerI doubt West Ham will be looking at any players until they know what league they will be in.Thats right keep racking up the debt.Wtf, Damien Delaney has never been promoted in his professional playing careerIf West Ham don't got up, they're in serious financial trouble, and I am told that there will be departures rather than arrivals should this transpire.Cameron Stewart no chance; he is under 6ft for a startThat's if he's not sackedI am assuming that you do not think West Ham will go up to the premeir league either via play offs or automatic promotion. All these players are championship players if that. Rob Green's contract runs out in June so if the Hammers arent promoted than expect him to leave anyway.I agree with those possible signings but there is also Jermaine Beckford and Jermaine Johnson who would be excellent signings for the club


20 Apr 2012 08:57:33
Southampton boss Nigel Adkins has made an enquiry for Juventus striker Alessandro Matri, but will only piursue the deal if they manage promotion. Matri has scored 19 ghoals for the possible Serie A champions and could cost up to £12 million.(7)(27)Isn't saints record signing Rory delay for like 4million I really don't see us spending 12 million on a player if we do manage to clinch promotion?An italian international forward........really?!?!?!
southampton paying out £12m on one player, when they won't spend that as a combined transfer all summer.......really?!?!?!"Up to £12 million" If a good deal can be worked it could be significantly less. I could see us going up to £8million for the right player.

But i don't think this will happen, need strength more urgently in other areas, we are fine up top for now.Think we need cover/competition for Lambert but someone is dreamingAs if he wud join southampton anyway live in dreamland some of you saints fans12m dream on

Non League News:

Combined Counties Division 1 will have the following new teams next season:

AFC Croydon Athletic, Southall, Old Farnboroughians, Epsom Athletic and AFC Bedfont Town.

Means that Didcot Town will switch to Southern League D1 Central as Merthyr Town are definitely in Southern League D1 West next season regardless of Westfields winning the Midland Alliance (they too will go into the Southern League D1 West).

Bookham are going to the Surrey Elite League, thereby reprieving Sheerwater.(4)(4)

Summer of change at Swindon regardless of the fact they will be in league one many of this seasons promotion winning squad will leave, and many new players bought in as Paolo di Canio plans for another promotion push. players out : Mattia Lanzano, Etienne Esajas, Lee Cox, Alan Connell, Mark Scott, Abdul Said, Lander Gabilondo, Raffaele De Vita, Alessandro Cibocchi, Lukas Magera, Billy Bodin, Ronan Murray and Mehdi Kerrouche.Expected to sign Jay McEveley and Lee Holmes and hand pro deals to Leigh Bedwell, Miles Storey and Harry Grant, which would leave the squad looking like this:
GK Wes Foderingham, Phil Smith, Leigh Bedwell, DEF Jay McEveley (LB) Callum Kennedy (LB) Aden Flint, Alan McCormack, Joe Devera, Oliver Risser (CB) Paul Caddis, NAthan Thompson, Chris Smith (RB) MID Matt Ritchie, Lee Holmes, Luke Rooney (Wingers) Simon Ferry, Oliver Risser, Jonathan Smith, Harry Grant (CM) Paul Benson, Miles Storey(STR)
That is a squad of just 20 players including three 1st year pros. Expect around 7 new signings in summer, 4 strikers, a winger, 2 midfielders(3)(7)Ronan Murray is only there on loan from ITFC anyway so not really an 'out' is he?Why would they get rid of Connell when he has been scoring fairly regularly? Luka Magera is a quality player as well.Also no mention of Alan Connell and where he will be next season??Swindon dont have the fan base to go much further, look at the poor gate last saturday!

19 Apr 2012 22:14:32
Newcastle will look to sign a left back a centreback a holding midfeild and a back up striker in the summer;
LB; either peiters from psv who would cost around 5 million or aly cissokho from lyon for around 7.5 million others names have been mentioned eg mbengue, anita or Maybe figueroa
Cb; vertonghen has Been mentioned but at around 15 million hes unlikely to join, either mbiwa or douglas seem the most likely at 6 million or 4 million but there are a number of defenders out there available at a good value
Cm; newcastle have been linked lots central midfeilders cognet, l.bender, diarra, amalfitano, m.sissoko, are just some of the them but id expect newcastle to find another young french player Or maybe another one from holland rather pay 6-10 million for the likes of diarra
St; mayuka, rodallega, obasi, rondon, gignac, maiga, erdinc and fletcher have all been linked with newcastle over the last season but as with most newcastle signinfs expect someone to come from nowhere(7)(23)


19 Apr 2012 20:51:01
Napoli are preparing a £4m bid for Dirk Kuyt. Lille are willing to pay £5m to make Joe Cole's loan switch permanent. Charlie Adam is a £7m target for Aston Villa. Alberto Aquilani is set to complete a permanent £6.3m transfer to AC Milan. Dani Pacheco,Doni,Maxi Rodriguez and Fabio Aurelio are also set to leave merseyside along with a number of youth players that are unlikely to make the grade at Anfield. Liverpool wish to sign David Hoilett and Craig Gordon who are both free agents this summer. Manchester City winger Adam Johnson will be made available this summer for £15m and Liverpool are favourite's to land him. Liverpool will complete their summer changes by signing Dutch duo Kevin Strootman and Ricky Van Wolfswinkel.(23)(23)Dani Pacheco to NorwichCan't see Liverpool offloading ALL of their dead wood, if you will. Even if Adam does leave, I don't think they'll get anywhere near £7M for him or £7M for Kuyt either.Adam wont be leaving us,anyway where are villa getting that kind of money


19 Apr 2012 20:40:04
Newly promoted Reading are looking at quickly confirming:
Benik Afobe - Arsenal (season loan)
Matt Connolly - QPR
Hayden Mullins – Portsmouth

Craig Mackail-Smith – Brighton – The People
Kevin Doyle – Wolves – Daily Star / Daily Mirror
Stephen Dobbie – Swansea – Daily Mirror
Stuart Beavon – Wycombe – Daily Star
Matt Phillips – Blackpool – Daily Mirror / Daily Mail (Holloway hasn't ruled out Phillips leaving but disputed the £1m fee quoted in the media)
Kieran Richardson – Sunderland – Daily Mail
Andrew Johnson – Fulham – Sky
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Hoffenheim – talkSPORT,, Daily Mirror
Bjφrn Sigurdarson – Lillestrom –
Jacob Butterfield – Barnsley – Rob Station (local journalist)

Other people being looked at include:
Shane Long – West Bromwich Albion
Matt Mills – Leicester (if available at sensible cost)
Aaron Cresswell – Ipswich
Vicente – Brighton (available on a free, contract expired)

Ian Harte will be offered a one year contract extension.

Outgoing are likely to include the following who will not be offered new contracts: Tomasz Cywka, Andy Griffin, Cedric Baseya, Nicholas Bignall, Jacob Walcott, Brett Williams, Michael Hector, Ethan Gage and Brynjar Gunnarsson who is leaving to go to KR Reykjavνk.(9)(30)Being a Wolves fan the only rumour I'm interested in is Kevin Doyle going back to Reading and I hope to god it's true, if we can get £5m for him great but I'd settle for £4m.You want all your old players!!I remember when Pompey supporters were posting similar lists after their East European owner arrived on the scene!
The enthusiasm is understandable but maybe should be tempered with a little caution, especially with the deal still to be finalised.I seriously hope we do not move for Doyle, 1 coz he has moved on so have Reading and 2 IMO he look 9/10 out off depth in prem.RIGHT....

-Afobe - probably true
-Connolly - not prem standard
-Hayden Mullins - not prem standard

-Mackail-Smith - not prem standard
-Doyle - av 10 goals a season and relegated twice.. better out there.
-Stephen Dobbie - Possible but not prem standard IMO
-Stuart Beavon - not prem standard
-Matt phillips - possible
-Richardson - possible
-Andrew Johnson - bigger teams interested in him
-Gylfi Sigurdsson - no chance
-Bjorn Sigurdarson - who?
-Jacob Butterfield - possible, but unproven

-Shane Long - No, he's happy at west brom, won't go back and forth like a yoyo
-Matt Mills - Leicester don't need to sell and he is vital for their prem push, so no.
-Aaron Cresswell- no where near good enough
Vicente - decent for free

I make that 6 possible and the rest highly unlikely. Good luck though.Interesting considering the Reading chairman announced there will be no big signings.Afobe-Not prem quality
Conolly- Likely
Mullins-Ok fr back up

CMS-Not even Championship quality
Dobbie-Not prem quality
Beavon-Will be ok with a bit of time
Phillips-Very Likely
Johnson-Great singing
Gyfil Sigurdson-Great signing
Bjorn Sigurdson-Who?
Long-Possible loan
Mills-No Way

Harte for 1 more year
Same for Cywka
And Walcott on a new contractTake a look at where these rumours are coming from.

daily star, daily mail, daily mirror ,talksport.

You could say not the most reliable of sources. (a slight under statement)To however said no big signings.Your wrong, but he did say they will not go mad on signings but they will make some big ones.


19 Apr 2012 20:34:57
Southampton have been put on alert after wigan winger victor moses didnt want to extend his contract(18)(7)Linked with every player lolNorwich boundYeah because if Moses was available he'd go to Norwich :-)"Linked with every player"

Good one mate, really funny. Obviously not thinking we are signing every player. Choose a time to make comments like this, this is a realistic signing.He's off to Spurs or LiverpoolWhy would Victor Moses sign for a team that May struggle in the premeier league - he has already been there, done that with Wigan. Expect him to sign for like of liverpool, Spurs and maybe Everton - teams who have experience of the premier league.

Craig Gardner and Craig Gordon are interesting Stoke with Kenwyne Jones returning to the SOL

Jarvis looks a certainty to join the Potters

Sorensen, Fuller (asking way too much), Upson and Woodgate expected to leave.

Pennant keen to sign a 1 year extension but Huth still up in the air (a bit like his opponents) :-)(15)(18)No chance of Gardener leaving, he's playing every week now and likes playing for Mon.No chance of jones returning hes bone idleInteresting you say 'no chance' to both when in fact you have no idea. Firstly yes Jones is lazy but O'Neill tried to sign him twice at Villa and if you look at his previous teams he is very much the kind of striker he likes to play in a front two. Secondly have you never heard of a first team player leaving a club? 'He likes playing for MOn' ......:-) When did he tell you that? Do you expect him to say he hates playing for him? He factually said he was homesick but don't let that cloud your judgement of reality.Yeh it's interesting how Gardener came out in the local paper saying, that he is "NOT HOMESICK", he wasnt getting a game under Bruce and was on a downer, now he's playing every game so expect him to stay where he is.

Hi ed keep hearing rumours that wolves are after Chris houghton from blues as they are in a financial mess and wolves will have a very gud chance of going back up with good money to spend(16)(9)They are not rumours they are just wishes, Chris Houghton will not be joining local rivals Wolves because as of next season Wolves will be in a financial straights themselves, a £25M drop in income tends to do that to a club. The sleeping giants will slumber once more. {Ed001's Note - Wolves can easily cope with the loss of revenue, they are in profit and have no financial issues.}

have a slight feeling Derby County will be mint in the championship next season


Brayford Pearce Shackell Roberts

Diouf Bryson Hendrick Ward

S.Davies Evans

Bench: Robinson, Tyson, Green, Buxton, Legzdins(5)(34)Really? Is that honestly your idea of a 'mint' team?? Honestly?? Serious??

Oh right I get it. How dumb am I!?! Your waiter a forest fan, or a leicester fan taking the mick. For a split second I thought this was a genuine post lolDerby will not be signing Diouf or Evans. Clough builds a team around players who work hard and with a good attitude to develop as players. Pearce could be a possibility. As for the post above, that's a stronger team than has been played this year, and the majority would get in most Championship sides. Premiership interest in Fielding, Brayford, Bryson, Hendrick, Ward, Robinson and Steve Davies says it all really.Derby won't want diouf I'm a donny fan and I can say he wasn't very good anymoreThat is a horrific team. Will be lucky to avoid relegation with those mugs!Shackell is leavin factBut is it a fact? What if he breaks his leg, will he be leaving then? Idiot.Ched Evans to middlesbroughTrying to get rid of Shackell because he,s top earner IF you don,t get rid of him 2 less to come inShackell signed last season, Derby are still under the same financial constraints as before, so that's unlikely. Green will leave, as well as Croft, Addison, and possibly Tyson and Maguire, probably taking £35k per week off the wage billChed evans is going to jail i think you ll find...


19 Apr 2012 17:45:05

Man city-Alex nimely-free

Coventry city-Richard Keogh-100k(1)(16)No they will notRichard Keogh for £100k your joking.Muzzy Carayol for £100k plus an untested youth player? Not a chance!

He's a superb player on his way up, either with us next year or for good money in the summer. We signed him for between £30-50k last summer, we're not selling him for double!Not gonna get Muzzy for less than a million.We're definatly relegated next season then!!Coppinger will not go to Barnsley fc 2 reasons 1. Why would he go to a local rival and 2. He has stated that he loves Doncaster rovers fc


19 Apr 2012 13:46:21
Matt Richie definitely on his way to Ipswich Town FACT. He wants to progress his career and make the Premiership as soon as he can. Sorry Swindon fans that just isn't going to happen with Swindon who just don't have that aspiration. I'm not an Ipswich fan but they are backed by one of the richest chairman in the football league, for god sake!

The rumour is that it will be a cash plus player deal, probably Ronan Murray plus £300k should do the deal, but STFC may hold out for £500k with the sell on clause hit.

Conr62(5)(12)What a load of bull if Richie ends up leave then it will be to a bigger club than Ipswich. And Murray is not worth £200k more like £50kMake the premiership? Lol no chance!If he wants to play premier league football, why go to Ipswich better off staying with Swindon.The only premier ipswich will make is blue square premier theyve had rich owner for five years and they havent finished in the top half yetI did find post about ipswich in blue square prem funny.many ture word spoken in jest. It could happen happen they are carpLol what a trio of jokers. My sides are splitting! COMMENT ON YOUR OWN TEAM budgies...its hilarious you think about us so much. Very flattering. I couldn't care less about your team so stop caring so much about mine! Oh and pride comes before a fall...remember that!Murray is not worth a fiver, one of the worst strikers weve had for a long time, you can have him back on his new contractAs for Murray being a crap signing, are you saying Dicanio is a crap manager, as he's the one that wanted Murray back on loan, also the tractor boys will be pushing for promotion next season, like most things its all down to getting the breaks of no injuries and keeping a strong squad together, similar to what you budgies have achieved this season, now as for Richie's possible move to Ipswich, well he's certainly young enough to be in PJ future squad building plans, whether it happens who knows, but Ipswich will make early signings and not be dragged into a start of season transfer debacle, the squad will be in place ready for the start.

Leeds have already been linked with summer moves for Sol Bamba, Paul Green, Max Gradel, Jamie Bulmann, Paddy Kenny and a number of youth players from feeder club St. Pauls.

Warnock has enquired about Bamba, Green and Kenny. Gradel has spoken of his desire to return to Leeds, although this is unconfirmed. Bulmann, of Oxford United, is an existing target shortlisted by Leeds scouts a while back.
wally(8)(16)Bulman left Oxford two years ago and has been at Crawley ever since!Becoming leicester rejects fc again then?Why would he enquire over Green, he's out of contract at the end of the seasonNo.. thats Dannie Bulmann, Crawley's skipper.

Tiote - Chelsea 25 -30 mil

Tiote - Newcastle already turned down 20 mil from chelsea, since then he has signed a new deal - hence 25 - 30.
Krull one of the best keepers in the prem - just signed a new deal - 20 -25 milDemba Ba is interesting Man U but his injury is worrying a few clubs apparentlyHennesey out for 6 months so going nowhereHeskey lol,a donkey no way will he be at newcastle,his best option championshipThe ins are wrong, but the outs could!! definatley happen. why would they not want to leave for better teams.Would they have left already? And why sit on a bench?Another mackem obsessed with our club. Mind the gap. Heskey is going to Sunderland. SMBI don't think Krul will leave this season and as a Wolves fan I can't see anyone buying Hennessey until January even if it happens as he's out until 2013.Wouldn't get of best players bar cabaye and cisse and replace with a goalkeeper who is injured for 6 months and Heskey who couldn't finish his diinner. I'm a Utd fan and this is most probably a Sunderland fan. Ridicolous

I am an apprentice football coach at Elland road and I have just seen Neil Warnock walk in the main doors with 3 other men in suits and a black guy in a track suit looking like leon best,
now theres a car in the car park (Audi RS4)
Registration plate L8est 20

MOT!(10)(26)NO SUCH NUMBER PLATE so g0 to Spec Savers or go have another look in car park with correct no platesGo and get a MOT ON YOUR EYES no such no plates lolNo such number plate could have been Best but if eyes as good as reading DEF NOTApprentice muppet me thinksYeah.....and I was walking through the car park at Eastlands and saw a number plate ME551.
I've seen a mini-bus at Elland Road they use for taking them to training, which had the number plate TO55ERS.Don't think so. Best would cost around 2mil and with Sir Ken Bates in charge we'll be lucky to spend 200k.Iam sure your employers will be delighted with you for breachig data protection....silly boy

Burnley are interested in the signing of Gary Madine. They will use the money front the sale of Jay Rodriguez whose move to a premier league team is looking imminent.(14)(5)

Scunthorpe,Chesterfield and Walsall are all looking at Dag and Red forward Danny Hylton(4)(1)Erm... Hylton plays for Aldershot.

hi ed have you heard of anyone whos likely to be the next afc bournemouth boss and is it likely to happen anytime soon. {Ed025's Note - no mate..(1)(3)

If the takeover at coventry goes through the following players will be joining and leaving

jack midson wimbledon 750k
sanchez watt arsenal (loan)
francois zoko carlisle 800k
jonathan forte southamton 1mill
norwood man u loan (already said he'd love to stay)


o'donovan hibernian 400k
eastwood southend 600k
martin cranie burnley 800k
richard wood back to sheff weds if they go up 900k {Ed007's Note - Hibernian do not have £400k to spend on a player, no chance.}(3)(23)Its going to be a BIG IF after Satday
YOU,LL BE STARTING ON - 10(minus)Jack Midson- £750,000.....absolutely no way. He was released from his former club on a free and though has scored 17 goals this seaso, nowhere near 1st division potentialYou could get the entire Hibs first team for less than £400000!

JamboCrainies out of contract so can leave for freeSouthend simply don't have £600.000 to spend on a player even if it is Eastwood. He has a niggling knee injury which might blight from time to time the rest of his career. Also he won't Sign for Southend if they remain in League 2 for next season.I don't think Forte is good enough for League 1-he wasn't for Saints! But if you want to pay £1m for him, good luck.Cranie is not out of contract because he said when/if we go down he will be leaving, jack midson seems a good player so why not hibs first team for 400k yeah ok gary o'connor is worth 1mill at least and leigh griffiths is worth about 500k-1mill and forte hasn't done too badly for notts in league 1Forte? £1million? Yes please! That's what we paid for Lambert! Forte is hacking terrible! Fast but nothing else. Pretty sure we only paid a couple hundred thousand for him, and all he has done since then is played a couple dozen league games on loan.You forgot to add Mcsheffrey to the outs, he wont want div 1 footieWhy would we pay 600k for Eastwood when he is out of contract in the summer and has been told to find a new club?Mcsheffrey is cov born and fan so why would he, and eastwood got told to find a new club because he's to fat not because of contracts

Fleetwood hotshot Jamie Vardy remains a target for Blackpool if the proposed deal for Stephen Dobbie falls through. Vardy may be on his way to Wigan if they stay up.(6)(8)


19 Apr 2012 12:28:08
Roberto Martinez has been watching Adrain Colunga with the view of making an offer in the summer.

The news that Victor Moses has rejected a contrsct extenion has also been rejected as it is untrue.

Physio.(3)(11)Moses agent confirms he will be leaving Wigan.

Both Sheffield clubs along with Huddersfield and Notts County are looking at Falkirk's 16 goal striker Farid El Alagui.(8)(5)

As a Reading fan iv heard loads of transfer rumours allready and the only one with any truth is the Glyfi rumour. I hav been told that we hav a list of 5 players that Brian wants and they are
Jay Rodriguez
Chedwy Evens
Gary Hooper
Matt Phillips
Kyle Naughton
Nathayal Clyne
Glyfi Sigurdsson
steven Davies
Curtis Davies(10)(28)List of 5 players when 9 named?Firstly, that's more than 5. Secondly, you won't have a spending spree, that's confirmed. Glyfi has interest from bigger clubs, regardless of whether you have history with him, he will go where he will play better football, and possibly in europe. The wages would be extremely high as well as the transfer cost. This is similar reasoning for Hooper, who is good, but Celtic want way too much for him. Not a good financial move, especially a club that doesnt have guaranteed funds yet, the takeover is not complete. Phillips would be a good signing, but would take a fair bit of money to capture, and will defo not happen if Pool make the prem through play offs.If that is the level of mathmatical competence at Reading, you will soon be in the same position as Pompey!The same Sigurdsson that all the top prem clubs want ok then mateI,ve just counted 9 on your list of 5 ?Erm - that adds up to 9 players!GLYFI same as rest he,ll go where ever agent finds best deal for him & HIMSELFReading wont get naughton, he will sign for norwich on ist july.Whose Chedwy Evens?Jay Rodriguez/Gary Hooper/Gylfi Sigurdsson/Nat Clyne are being chased by bigger and better teams than reading and have been for a while, so can't see Reading winning the battle to sign them.Potentially the worst post I've ever read on here.

It fails mathematically, the spelling is bad (not that I care about spelling, but "Chedwy Evens"...come on) and most importantly most of the listed names are bs. It's like the you've just thrown in all the random names that have been mentioned by other clubs into this post and said Reading are keen for them.I dowt u will be gettin ched evans been senteced for 5 years in prison for 5 yearsPretty sure ched evans has just been banged up for 5 years, u really know ur stuff palChed Evans I think you mean, the famous INSIDE forward!

Jacob butterfield of barnsley fc is in secret talks with Newcastle united,fee to be agreed by tribunal,you heard it here first folks.(20)(13)They can't be secret talks if you know about them can they??Not really here first...been reported for ages..Not that secret then!!So secret you knew about themThe in Barnsley is that Butterfield was due in Newcastle earlier today for a medical and that the contract is for five years. Barnsley expect to receive around 300k - 500k from the tribunal.


19 Apr 2012 11:12:39
Hi Ed, any idea where Jamie Vardy is likely to end up? {Ed001's Note - I am not sure he is going anywhere in the summer.}(2)(4)Rumour around the Fylde is Vardy will join Blackpool with cash and 2 fringe players joining Fleetwood. Tom Barkhuizen (On loan @Hereford with 11 goals in 37games and only 18) being the main carrot being dangled in front of Andy Pilley.

Mass Exodus from the SPL. This comes after the most embarrassing year in the SPL history. Players have now realized they must play in the Premiership in England to fulfill potential. Transfers that will happen are:

Gary Hooper - Southampton £4m
James Forrest - Spurs £6m
Steve Davis - Aston Villa £2.5m
Kyle Lafferty - Wigan £1m
Steven Naismith - WBA £3m
Lee Wallace - Sunderland £250,000
Joe Ledley - Cardiff £3m
Mackay-Steven - Bolton £1.5m
Jonny Russell - Bolton - £1.5m

Any decent talent looking for oppertunity to leave.....and to be honest why not!(22)(18)You say they realise they must play in the Premiership - Why would Joe Ledley go to Cardiff. They're going to bottle it again.I think the Hooper one could happen, but not for £4m. If the deal is with Saints they will not disclose the amount anyway, but then if you take the January window as an example Celtic would probably bleat every detail to the press-and then some!Made up rumour but thanks for the light entertainmentNO they know CHAMPIONSHIP better than Mickey Mouse SPLLmao n im sure naismith will be at villa cuz mcleish will want him. N hes an ex rangers bossHa...lafferty a 'decent talent' ha thats made my week

Watford hope to sign Rory Donnelly from Swansea on loan at the start of next season until Christmas(13)(2)


19 Apr 2012 09:53:23
Jarvis to Stoke for 6m
Fletcher to Sunderland for 3.5m
Hennessey was going to go to Spurs but is now injured.
Karl Henry to Sunderland for 1.5m(16)(13)Jarvis and Henry yes, but Wolves wont let Fletcher go for 3.5M, it would need to be more like 6-8M3.5 mill for norman stanley fletcher,a wee bit steep?Doyle and Kightley to West Brom in exchange for Cox and Thomas plus cash.Fletcher 3.5,wake up diviI would give £1.50 for Henry. Awful for Wolves and couldn't get in the Stoke team in Div 3Jarvis around £5m but Fletcher for £3.5m how does that work, we paid £6.5m and he's improved so you're looking £8m minimum unless he has a clause, Hennessey I'm not bothered about, being a keeper myself I know he's useless. I can't see Henry wanting to go that far north either personally, plus Henry and Cattermole in midfield, wow Sunderland will be chalking up the cards if that happens.Fletcher for 3.5 million after scoring double figures in the prem for 3 consecutive seasons!!!
Triple the price and still let half a dozen clubs form a queue. Forget Stoke for Jarvis.

Derby will look to offload striker Nathan Tyson this summer and will offer him as part of a deal for Sheffield Wednesday forward Gary Madine if the owls aren't promoted to the Championship this season. This decision comes after Nigel Clough said that Derby County need a goal scorer.(9)(5)We'll have him at cov if your that desperate


19 Apr 2012 08:48:15
Burnley scouts have watched Derby midfielder Ben Davies and are preparing a summer bid of 750k+(8)(10)

Promoted team Reading will be looking at Zaha and Dempsey(7)(29)Read the news mate please, reading already said they d be sensible and seeing as dempsey is probably going to go to a top 6 side i think you re a bit offDempsey?! arsenal been linked with him, either way surely staying at a stable fulham is better than coming hereHes arsenal boundZaha i could see happening if 7million was offerd, but Reading hav also said they wont be paying over the odds for players. Dempsey no chance iv been told that Juventus are intrested aswellThe only way Reading will look at these players is from the other end of the pitch.That is a good point


19 Apr 2012 01:07:08
Watford close to agreeing a contract with Jonathan Hayes of Inverness Caley Thistle whose deal runs out at the end of the season.(17)(5)Has he not already signed a pre contract with hibernianNope.
