Football Rumours Archive December 22 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

ht , i am a Man City fan, and as for people moaning about the sacking of Mark Hughes , theres not been a player "exodus" because there is only one player who is unhappy at City and its Shay Given. He doesn't want to move anywhere, he is just unhappy about the Mark Hughes sacking, how do i know this? My uncle from Wales knows Brian Marwood.

The owners want this starting 11 for City by January 2011:
Richards (Mancini has particulary watched him)
De Jong
Gerrard/Yaya Toure

This is no lie, the owners could let Vincent Kompany go to Barcelona in january or the summer.

We may not sign all of them, but the owners are after them players.


Liverpool to sign TONI, FREE–––SINAMA PONGOLLE, 6m–––J.A.RIISE 3.5m–––ALEX from Chelsea for 7m. AND SELL– Voronin 3m to Newcastle, BABEL 8m to CITY and DEGEN 2m to Borussia Dortmund..EVERTON to sign DONOVAN in summer for 8m, funded by sale of RODWELL to SPURS. IN SUMMER JENAS WILL THEN JOIN LFC for 6m. LFCREDMAN!


Heard from a source close to liverpool that a combined bid of seventy million plus santa cruz and barry from city for torres and gerrard is being seriously considered with rafa seeing it as his only way to bring in serious transfer funds also heard that the board are prepared to sanction the deal so as alienate benetiz from the fans not good times ahead at the club as it seems to be tearing itself apart. Red jay


Goran Slavkovski to wigan !!!


!Bombshell For Peterborough Fans!

I was having dinner with work colleagues, in a restaurant in London's West End when I spotted Barry Fry and Ron Atkinson chatting at a table nearby.

Barry Fry wants to bring Ron in at Peterborough, and is trying to move Darragh MacAnthony out of London Road.

The two of them hate each other, and Fry is not going to let his precious ego get hurt. Also the fan who had a pop at MacAnthony is the friend of Barry's son, Adam. Make of that what you will!


Edin dzeko to arsenal
david villa to chelsea
sergio aguero to chelsea
ruud van nistelrooy to arsenal


Arsenal transfer news:

arsenal will sign babel in jan 4 5m that will be only signing in jan. sakho & hazard will both join 4 7.5m each & will be loaned back until end of season, chamakh will sign pre contract & join in summer. wenger will sign zapata 4 10m in summer. silvetre, senderos, rosicky & gallas will all leave on free transfers.



Some news:

darren ferguson will replace craig levein at dundee united, after eddie thompson jnr. spoke with sir alex ferguson.

also, jez moxey is to leave wolves after christmas after an internal investigation into the man utd v wolves match. moxey has been implicated in wrongdoings, and mick mccarthy will follow him out of molineux with paul le guen taking over on an interim basis. however, if le guen does well he will be offered a two and a half year deal.


Walsall's Troy Deeney has attracted intrest from Peterborugh, Preston and Coventry. Peterborough however are the favourites to sign him for £600, 000.

As usual Walsall boss Chris Hutchings will get none of this to spend on players. Hutchings will dive into the loan market to find another striker to replace Deeney.

Alex Nicholls will go out on loan to Burton for the second time in his career.


Sir alex said he wouldn't make any def signings in jan. but that doesn't rul out striking or midfield options. he is closely looking at silva and villa at a combined 40 mil. also he is looking at gourcuff from bordaux. laurent blanc (bordaux manager)will take over at the end of the 2010–11 season and wants some of his current players at united this means chamack will not joi west ham or arsenal but united.
mark my words –––big man–––


Man City's Mancini to bring in De Rossi for around 25 to 28 million pounds, Barry will join Liverpool on loan to make way for him. Walter Samuel will reunite with the ex Inter coach.

Jack Wilshere will join Burnley on a season long loan. The French manager will also bring in Marouane Chamakh from Bordeaux.


Some info for Plymouth and Darlington fans.

I work in The City (London) and deal with football clubs as part of investment banking.

Both clubs are managing to survive, despite rumours to the contrary, and Plymouth will be sold on by June 2010.

As for Darlington, I personally know Mr. Raj Singh and spoke to him briefly this morning.

He said that money is extremely tight and there will, unfortunately, be players who will be sold in January with reserves and youth being given a chance to impress along with one or two loans, if agreements can be made with parent clubs. David Amoo is one name that has been mentioned, but there are up to 10 clubs in League 2 who are interested in him.

Darlington will NOT go under, even if they are relegated. Mr. Singh has stated his commitment to the club, but has said he would step aside if somebody came in with the right amount of money to take the club forward.


Burnley Transfers in Jan


Best from Coventry 1M
Elliot from Bristol City 2M
Snodgrass fro Leeds 800, 000


Edgar to Leeds 500, 000
Blake to Wolves 200, 000


My Latest Rumours from my agent: Peter Trembling looking for investors and Al–Alfaraa Singh looks like the only possible investor but it looks unlikely. David Gold and David Sullivan are trying to pursue their interest in West Ham but with owners debt extension are looking stubborn to sell. DG and DS are looking at Crystal Palace for lower price. Man City are looking at Danny on Loan, Perotti for 20m, Azbilcueta for 10m, Abidal for 8m and Rui Patricio for 5m. Players looking to leave are Bellamy, Given, Toure, Adebayor and Robinho. Chelsea are close to finalsing a deal worth 35m for Aguero and a loan deal for Viera until the end of the season. QPR want Taraabt on a permanent deal for 2m. With Watson going back to Wigan, Paul Hart wants Kingson for 1m, Wilson for 1.5m and McLean for 4m. Liverpool have no money to spend in January so Rafa wants to sign Adriano or Toni and Joaquin is an option to buy with a swap deal with Riera. Pandev may move on loan to Liverpool if Babel agree's to go Lazio on Loan. If Babel is a no Voronin and Dossena will move to Lazio. Crystal Palace with new ownership will move for Simeon Jackson for 2.5m and Bonaventure Kalou for free. Victor Moses will move for 5m to any who are interested such as Arsenal, Fulham, Sunderland,
Wigan, Villa, Roma, Barcelona. Reading will appoint Darren Ferguson and he is looking to sign Joe Lewis for 3m, George Boyd for 3m, Stock for 2.5m and Beevers for 3m


With Craig Levein destined for the Scotland job, the front runners for the Dundee United job appear to be Sir Alex from Man United, Jose from Inter, Luis Felipi Scolari and Michael O'Neil from Shamrock Rovers.

Former Dundee Manager Alec Rae in the frame for the Dundee United Managers job


Liverpool fans im sorry to announce that you will not be buying in the january market as you have absolutely no money to spend, hence why rafa hasn't been sacked because that will cost the club 20 mil which they don't have, only selling will take place in january. also arsenal fans the takeover will make no difference to arsenes spending, wenger has had money available for use for about 3 years now and none of it has been spent, as a result no matter what the takeover situation is arsene will still buy a striker of high quality, ruud V has been mentioned, or even the likes of adriano, strong rumour from reliable source is that henry could be on the cards for a return to the home of football which is the emirates stadium



Just seen Tim Cahill and his agent outside Finch Farm


Rafa Benitez is desperate to sign a striker in January to cover for the imminent loss of Fernando Torres who has decided have his hernia operation now; in a bid to be at the top of his game come the World Cup. Dosena (£3 million), Babel (£4.5 million) and Voronin (£1.5 million) will all be sold to try and fund a move for somebody; Beattie (£5 million) could be the answer, and V.Nistlerooy (Loan) is a further option.
The Reds have also made a desperate bid to Arsenal for the loan deal of Jack Wilshere; offering a Babel loan in return.

The Gunners themselves are looking desperately for a striker and Arsene Wenger is thinking long and hard over the possibilities of Adriano or Luca Toni. Both free, available, potentially world class (and Adriano is not cup–tied) but at the same time both potentially could unsettle the camp, both are unfit and both would be bang out of form.


Got a tip off from en ex LFC player who has only just left that Gerrard is to leave in Jan for £60m. Got 33/1 from Paddy Power and now they have stopped taking bets. Coral are offering 7/2. Rafa to be allowed to spend whole £60m to gain Champs Lge qualifying spot.


SCOTLAND/DUNDEE UNITED – If as expected Craig Levein leaves to become the new manager then United WILL turn to Alex Rae to become his replcement – FACT !


Birmingham to buy Kris Boyd £2.5m , Davis £3m , McGregor £3m , Caldwell £4m , McGeady £7m and Brown £5m


Hear that rafa is gonna be given one last chance to be trusted with money but don't expect 40–50m like some teams
just about 15m plus sales
rafa is looking at west ham duo matthew upson and scott parker after both admitting they don't know where they will be come febuary both of them will be bought for the 15m budget
ryan babel will be sold for 10m to hamburg or 5m plus ellia
voronin will leave for 2m and dossena to leave for 5m
this will pave the way for goran pandev and victor moses to move to liverpool
this will conclude money deals but rafa has been alerted at bayern telling toni he can leave on a free
but wages may be the down point as far as ruud to anfield it seems that wages is the key again


Transfer news from the other side of the pond: Houston Dynamo midfielder Ricardo Clark and Chivas USA midfielder Sacha Kljestan are on there way to Celtic and Burnley respectively.


Burnley will sign Coventrys top scorer Leon Best for 1M in Jan TW and send defender David Edger on Loan to Norwich for rest of season


Liverpool Possible Transfers for January, Rafa is looking to buy British if possible. Rafa is looking at the precarious situation at Man City to see if he can finally get his man in Gareth Barry. Rafa, as we know is a long term admirer of Barry and could offer £12 million for him. Barry is unhappy with the way Mark Hughes left Man City but is still committed to City, its just a case of whether Barry would want to leave City to play alongside Gerrard or whether Man City would want him to leave. With Dossena leaving the club and Aurelio suffering from injury and Insua unable to cope defensively at the moment, a £5million move for Wayne Bridge is also being lined up. Although Bridge is currently injured, Rafa looked at him well before his transfer to City. Undoubtedly, Roque Santa Cruz is, alongside Craig Bellamy, the most angry player at Eastlands due to Hughes' sacking as he had strong connections with Hughes. Liverpool did bid for him before his transfer to City but Blackburn accepted a higher bid from City. Liverpool could put a loan bid in for him.
Rafa wants to add Matthew Upson to the defence. Rafa chased him all through the summer but was unable to sign him as the owners wouldn't fund the £10 million transfer fee. Surprisingly, the person who could fund this transfer is the departure of Daniel Agger to AC Milan for £12 million. Other players being looked at for defence are Gary Cahill and Ryan Shawcross, midfield being Tom Huddlestone, Scott Parker, Jermaine Jenas, Mark Noble, Jack Collinson, Juan Mata. Strikers are Carlton Cole, Goran Pandev, Santa Cruz, Van Nistelrooy, Luca Toni


I have just heard that David Bentley is in talks with Blackburn. I can't see them having the money to sign him unless Spurs are willing ro take a huge loss....Maybe loan/Part exchange?

i have a close source to Craig and he says that he and Shay might go back to Newcastle in the Summer.


Can confirm Plymouth Argyle are in financial trouble. The squad is too big and can't be offloaded gate and confidence are both very low so the club is heamoraging money. If results don't change soon they wil take the 10 point hit and administration, unlike many clubs the debt is small but not sustainable. Sadly others in the CCC are allowed to operate with huge debt like Cardiff but still spend, spend, spend.


Arsenal will try to sign roque santa cruz who is unhappy with the sacking of mark hughes. if this fails he may try getting adriano on a short term contract.SHADOW.


Has anybody heard anything about Mata and/or Pandev to Liverpool??


Derek Riordan will be leaving Hibernian in January!!

John Hughes has had enough of his behaviour after his latest exploits in Dunfermline. He has also just had his nightclub ban in Edinburgh DOUBLED to 10 years.

Charlton are favourites to land him!


With mark hughes being sacked shay given, craig bellamy and robinho are looking to move on
Bellamy will move to arsenal in january. Given will move to either united or arsenal in the summer, Robinho will move to barca in either transfer window.VDV will not be leaving Real Madrid since he has broke into the first team, so unlucky for liverpool and arsenal. huntelaar is being tracked by arsenal and united and will move to one of the 2 in the summer. chelsea will attempt to sign aguero in january and if not they will sign him in summer. franck ribery will move to real madrid in summer, and raul will move to united since he will be behind higuain, ronaldo and benzema in pecking and madrid will attempt to sign fabregas but will never happen for a couple of years (unless barca swap messi for fabregas)
so in for arsenal– bellamy, maybe given, maybe huntelaar, messi if they swap for fabregas
in for chelsea– aguero
Man united– maybe huntelaar, raul, maybe given
real madrid– ribery
barcelona– fabregas if they swap for messi


RE – CELTIC BREAKING NEWS Keane straight swap for Boruc, that's in the papers, the real deal is Redknap wants Boruc+£3/4m for Keane, also mentioned interest in McGregor £6m+ possibility of Hutton going back to Rangers on loan, source in WHL. COYS


I think the whole exodus from Man City in Jan is a bit far fetched! Lets face facts, there's a large foreign contingency at City and not too many of them will have been upset at Hughes leaving (especially Adebayor & Robinho who are just there for the coin!). Even Gareth Barry won't be concerned as he had the opportunity to play at several big clubs before opting for City's cash. The only players it may effect are Bellamy and Given. Bellamy has already made remarks about the situation and given his track record, looks likely to be on the move in January. I just can't see Arsenal being an option for him though. He's not the type of player Wenger is looking for (big, powerful finisher with aerial presence), nor is he looking to bring in a mouthy git who will embarrass the club on the pitch and in the media. There is an abundance of riches with Walcott, Arshavin, Nasri, Barazite all pacy, creative wide players. Bellamy doesn't offer anything that Wenger needs right now. Shay Given however does! Although I cannot see Shay knocking on the door with a written request. He will at the very least give Mancini a chance, he was very loyal to all his managers at NUFC. Lets not forget that Mancini has a big reputation worldwide, unlike Hughes. He is far more likely to bring in the best players (especially those from Serie A)than Hughes could have. His major disadvantage though will be his lack of English (although this didn't work against Capello in his early days!). As for the post claiming Barry will move to LFC for £8m – he joined City for £12m, why would he leave a bad smell to bathe in sht! Come on! There's some blinkered opinions on here of late and unsurprisingly its nmainly LFC rumours. Mascherano, Gerrard, Torres are all unlikely to be at the club after the World Cup. Very little will be spent in January with the uncertainty of Benitez's future. As for talk of the development of Stanley Park having a positive influence on releasing transfer funds – YOU ARE TALKING OUT OF YOUR DAVID BATTY! Liverpool have nothing to offset the debt. Arsenal have had to lower their sights in the transfer windows since their move to the Emirates. However, the stadium was built by offsetting loans against the Highbury development. This is almost sold off now and with Kroenke looking likely for a takeover in Jan, money will no longer be such an issue. For Liverpool however, it is the exact opposite – if Stanley Park is to be built, LFC will have little to no cash available and if they are out of the CL, it'll be really tight times ahead for at least 3–4 years! Rumours of £10m+ players coming in are just pure fantasy! As for Voronin fetching £4–5m? From who? Talk sense! You'll be lucky to get that for Babel. With Kroenke taking over AFC in Jan, Fabregas will be going nowehere. Expect some quality signings after the World Cup although the focus will still be on sense and sensibility. Just because Wenger is given money, doesn't mean he sees the need to go out and burn it – and that's why Kroenke has been desperate to buy the club!


Arsenal to sign Bellamy on loan with a view to a permanent move.

Norwich City to sign Dagnall, Martin, McNamee and Seabourne in Jan.
To leave: Whaley (part of the Dagnall deal), McVeigh (loan to Lincoln) and Otsemobor and Cureton are both heading for Notts County!!


Sullivan and Gold will complete the takeover of West Ham before January. Zola will be given £15–20m to spend and will be given the rest of the season to keep West Ham up or he will be sacked. Key players such as Cole, Parker, Behrami, Upson, Green, etc, will stay. However, it is understood that Chelsea are keen on Green and it is thought that Zola will offer £3m + Green and will ask for Petr Cech in exchange! This could well happen as Chelsea are very disappointed in Cechs current form. If Zola does not pull this deal off, Green will stay at Upton Park. The main positions Zola wants to strenthen are RB, CB, ST. His targets for right back are Hutton and Ferreira. He is also watching centre backs Anton Ferdinand, Sol Campbell and Steven Taylor, taylor would be keen on a move as he wants to make a late bid to get into capello's world cup squad. Zola wants to sign a world class striker who can put goals away and has targeted players such as Adriano, Toni, Kezman, Zigic and Pandev. Aswell as this they will secure Macheda on a 6 month loan deal. West Ham will then offload fringe players quashie and spector and sign a few players to strengthen the squad like Kim Kallstrom, Nicky Shorey and Bolton keeper Ali Al Habsi.


RAFA looks set to try and offload 7 to 10 players this JAN.
RAFA feels his hand has been forced in selling the last 3 and only will do if he can land direct replacments in MILNER UPSON SW PHILLIPS
RAFA will try and move in on MAN CITY'S UNREST and moves for GIVEN BELLAMY BARRY SANTA CRAZ all targets, he knows 2 out off the 4 will be a great swoop.Other TARGETS PARKER LOAN TO BUY VDV RVN RAFA NEEDS TO FINISH 4th TO SAVE HIS PAYOFF


My uncle is an agent for birmingham city, he told me they have basically signed 4 players – they are

Joe Hart £4m – man city – due to mancini not knowing who he is then he will snap ecks hands off for £4m

Michel £2.7m – Gijon – blues have been talking to gijon and michels agents about a deal since november and all parties are now happy he will be signed on a 4 year deal

Aiden McGeady £7m + o'connor – Celtic – perfect player for birmingham – tricky fast winger and has been told he can leave celtic, blues have offered garry o'connor plus 7m and i understand that will be accepted

Kevin Kuranyi £5m – FC Schalke – kuranyi beleives he is perfect for the premier league and fancys joining the carson revaloution, representitives of birmingham have been in germany for a few weeks now sorting out a deal that will see kuranyis wage doubled.

Expect these to happen in the first weeks of jan



Rafa wants to sell 4 players from his squad to free up funds to sign his own players in the Transfer Window. Ryan babel has attracted interest from Germany with Hamburg ready to make a move for the Dutch star. Hamburg will offer either Marcus Berg or 9m for the Babel. Rafa will most likely take the cash. Andriy Voronin will also be heading to the Bundesliga with either Wolfsburg or Hertha Berlin, most likely Berlin for 4m. Andrea Dossena only played against Portsmouth so he can impress Italian clubs to buy him. Milan are interested in making a move because he played well in Italy. 5m the fee. Philipp Degen has failed at Liverpool and wants to move so he can make the World Cup in South Africa. Trabzonspor, AEK Athens and FC Zurich are interested with the latter preparing a 2m bid for him. That will give Rafa 20m to spend in January. Goran Pandev will come in to help Torres with the goal scoring for 3m. Rafael Van der Vaart will make a loan move to Merseyside. Victor Moses will further develop at Liverpool for 5m, Matthew Upson will make the shock move to Liverpool for 8m and 4m will be spent on Andrea Poli from Sampdoria


Sir alex has mentioned that he won't be signing anybody in january but the 2 important deals he has been chasing are already done in secret. it's not silva, its not villa, it won't be dzeko and certainly not torres.
sir alex has tied up the deals with totenham and bolton to bring modric and gary cahill to old trafford for a combined amount of 25 million pounds. that is all sir alex will spend this january however, he will look to get some players in on loan deals. the rumoured loan deals are craig bellamy and ryan shawcross.


PAFC to go under , players been paid late 2 months out of 3 . the club are bleeding money to an oversize squad that no one wanted to take on loan .and all this on crowds of 8000 – 10000 , even more bad times ahead


Jermaine Beckford to sign for Middlesbrough in January for 1.5m


####RUMOURS ONLY#### These are only rumours that I have heard through reasonable sources (A friend of mine works for a FA youth campaign team). Chelsea have already brokered a deal for Eden Hazard and are hopeful of finalising a deal in the summer but expect the him to go back on loan for another season. Wenger is not going to Man City at the end of season and is expected to sign a contract extension within the year to quash the rumours. Curbishly was approached by Sheff Wed but has declined the offer indicating that he is already mulling over a deal from another club. George Burley was also approached but he too declined claiing he needs time off. The Keegan link is also fictional as he was keeping an eye on wigan as he expected them to re evaluate Roberto Martinez' position, keep an eye on that. Liverpool were interested in a deal for Chamakh with a possibly swap/loan deal with Babel but a tip off about the player fitness has halted proceedings. A possible swoop for Enrique of Newcastle may also be on the cards (but unlikely) Man Utd are close on finalsing a deal for Da Costa and Michal Owen will be handed a re structured deal at the end of the season. QPR, Hart to go for Marc Wilson of Pompey and aslong as wages can be negotiated, Kanu maybe joining him. Charlton have been looking at Northampton Town striker Courtney Herbert and may look into what kind of contract he has with the club as there may well be loop holes. Thats all for now will post another rumour list on Boxing Day all being well. NORTHERN BOY


ENOUGH WITH ALL THE MoN TO LFC RUMOURS!!! this moment in time with the current anarcy in the LFC board room they are a laughing stock to the rest of the major clubs in europe, they havent got enough money to spend 4m on Moses let alone make bids for top european stars! and as for MoN leaving the VILLA? has anyone seen the league table ????, unless a minor miracle happens LFC will be struggling to get into the europa league let alone CL so that blows the MoN to LFC (because he wants to manage in the CL)rumour posted a few days back, im all for rumours but utter fantasy is a bit much...FACT VILLA: NRC will be sold, Shorey will be sold, MoN needs a striker and theres no chance we'd go after Kuyt, he wouldn't even get onto our bench!!


Man City New.

Garry Cook wants Kevin Keegan back at City on a coaching capacity


Van der vaart 10m to Liverpool (cheap option and class act)to replace J.Mash.


"BREAKING CELTIC NEWS " After talks with harry robbie keane could be going to celtic with a straight swap involving celtic polish goalkeeper artur boruc, rumours from white hart lane today suggest after the dublin party there is no way back for keane. After cudicini breaking his wrists spurs badly need boruc to fight for the no 1 position with harry a big admirer of the polish keeper , keane seemingly is a big celtic fan due to his irish upbringing and will gladly take a pay–off to sign for less wages on a 3 year deal. jdourno london.


Liverpool are set to bid £16 million + Dossena and Voronin for Wolfsburg hotshot Edin Dzeko. Rafa Benitez will be forced to sell Mascherano in the summer and will also sign Scott Parker as an advance replacement by also snapping him up for £8 million in January. Benitez will be swapping Ryan Babel for David Bentley as well to complete his January spending!

Giorgio Chiellini to Man City 15 million


Man utd have agreed a deal to sign silva since last summer but won't arrive till summer 2010 not january and also might sign hazzard been looking at him last 2 years


Hibernian will sell Derek Riordan to Burnley for £1.5 – £2.5 million during the January Transfer Window. If not January the end of the season.

Additionally, Hibernian's Ivory Coast centre half Sol Bamba will be sold to Blackburn Rovers or Stoke City for an estimated £5 million in the summer. The price may rise depending on Bamba's performance at the world cup.

Source's are genuine.


Hibernian manager John Hughes is to be given a relatively large transfer kitty to improve the current squad and to maintain a title challenge in the SPL.

His target may be Darren Barr at Falkirk to bring him in as cover for defender Bamba as he is away at the African Cup of Nations.

Scott Artfield is on Hughes' radar however Hibernian may not be able to compete to sign Artfield with many Championship clubs interested.

Source's Genuine.


Mancini has identified Sergio Aguero as his top transfer target. But Chelsea want to sign him as well City will offer higher wages, so it will be interesting to see who wins this race.

Top Tranfer News from Germany. Rafael Van der Vaart has pushed his way into the Madrid first team and will stay until the end of the season but will then leave in the Summer to either Germany or England as he seeks the best treatment for his wife who is suffering from breast cancer and these are the only two countries who can provide the care they seek. Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham are the interested clubs in England while a move to former club Hamburg could be a possibility along with Bayern and Werder Bremen. Luca Toni will leave Bayern on a free and despite reports in Italy suggesting a move to Chelsea is a possibility, I can confirm it is not. Liverpool will throw him a lifeline but will opt for a loan until the end of the season with the option to sign him free in the Summer. This will suit all parties and Bayern are willing to accept. Dzeko will not be leaving until the Summer at least


Lol wot muppett said wenger to man city in the summer....mmmmmmm Yeah of course he would turn down real madrid for those northern muppets, let alone sell a player he could not stand to them to go and manage him again, if and a big if wenger ever leaves arsenal it will be to try international before retiring... wenger has alot of unfinnished business at arsenal, in will be subotic/sakho... inler/matiudi/vieira toni or rvn more in the summer....outs senderos, takeover happening very early january
