Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

A friend of mine is a speaker at charity and special events, his circle of work lets him meet loads of football stars and a few people give him little bits of info from time to time heres what he has heared . Arsenal will let baptista go back but want Robinho who is disapointed with lack of 1st team football and wants to leave AW will sign Ribery and a keeper also Hleb on his way out. Manu . will tie Ronaldo to a new deal till 2012 before making any signings and will sign diarra from r Madrid Bale won't be signed by manu its a smokescreen they want M. Richards. Chelsea . Bale will sign to Chelsea robben is off to Germany or Italy makele is off back to R Madrid . and West Ham . well your going down . sad to say

To the Celtic fan who claimed to have seen Steve Sidwell at Parkhead for the AC Milan game but he had a grey scarf covering his face, well if he had a scarf covering his face how could you tell it was him.

Rangers rumours:


Scott Brown

Robbie Neilson

Russell Anderson

Craig Gordon

David Healy (surpise move)

Alan Gow (confirmed)


Stefan Klos

Brahim Hemdani

Gavin Rae

Libor Sionko

Also expect an influx of youth team players to start with Steve Lennon, Dean Furman, Alan Lowing and John Fleck set to be appearing more in the first team.

Iain Dowie is set to sign his first player for Coventry City. When Dowie was at Palace he was a big admirer of winger Josh Low but never landed his man. This time a loan deal is in the bag for the wide man.

This summer will see thebiggest merry go round ever: Hargreaves to United in summer along with klose as Torres on his way to Barcelona. Eto moves to Chelsea with robben going the other way. Villa to move to Liverpool with Micah Richards as hyppia's replacment. Arsenal will not be signing anyone big except bapitista and a GK. expect ikinfeev or gordan to sign for the Gunners.

I work at the Villa training ground as a groundsman and the word is that Bellamy is top of oNeils summer signings as this will allow us to play three at front, also there r rumours that Van Der Vaart could be brought with an audacious bid who knows? there is also a possibility that Steve Sidwell could be at Villa park nxt season, however we face competiton from the likes of Celtic and valencia! lets hope he chooses to cum 2 d villa. we will be contending for europe like the jon gregory days hopefully Martin oNeil will win something unlike the past managers for the last 20years. the Villa yuth! bluenosescum

It seems to me that people write the transfers that they want to happen on here reather than transfers that will hapen. These rumours are 100% true. Inter Milan will launch a bid for Lionel Messi, to replace the retiring Figo, AC Milan will launch a bid for Ronaldinho but this sure to be rebuffed by the catalans. Real will look to offload Diarra to an Italian club this summer but don't be surprised if Man Utd come fishing for him. United were only put ff by the price tag before and he is sure to be cheap due to his poor performances in a Madrid shirt. Man Utd will also launch a bid for Robinho as will Arsenal, Wenger wanted to sign the player before but Madrid got him due to their status in world football. Chelsea will not be signing Villa who has a release clause of over 100 million. Players are becoming wise to joining Chelsea, they know they are not guarenteed first team footbal all the time, also Abramovich has said the big spending is over. Torres will not be coming to any English club, I saw him play last Saturday and he looked to be a poor player, overated by people who hear his name but don't know how good a footballer he actualy is.

Everon will look to follow up their intrest in mexican winger Andres Guardado with a bid in the summer. However, they are very unlikely yo succeed due to European heavyweights Inter, Milan and Real Madrid also declaring their intrest.

Celtic FC Rumours

There has been talk of Steve Sidwell to Celtic, they have agreed a 4 year contract worth 28, 000 a week with add-ons for goals and appearances. The deal hinges on if Reading make it into Europe. If Reading make it into Europe he will stay if they don't he will go to Celtic.

Kenny Miller is almost certainly moving on in the summer, possible clubs are Newcastle, Everton, or back to his old club Wolves. The price being quoted is 1. 5million.

The talks of Boruc going to Arsenal true but Arsenal are more likely to buy Craig Gordon of Hearts because the price would be much cheaper. Celtic want 8million for Boruc whereas Hearts will accept 5million for Gordon. If Arsenal do meet Celtic's valuation, then Celtic will look to either Fabianski of Legia or Timo Hillenbrand.

Thomas Gravesen will move on in the summer to Charlton or Everton. The deal will be worth 2. 5million.

James McCarthy will not move to Celtic as Chelsea have came in with an offer that Celtic or Liverpool won't match.

Celtic have many targets for a partner to Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink. The targets are Craig Bellamy, James McFadden, Landon Donovan, Steven Naismith, Klas Jan Huntelaar, Gary O'Connor, Alfonso Alves, and Atiba Hutchison. The rumours of Robbie Keane are completely untrue.

Continuing on with the marketing, Celtic are doing in the USA, they will sign an USA international, names being floated around are Striker Landon Donovan, Pablo Mastroeni, and Freddy Adu. Nike sponsors all of these players, so no suprise there. Also on the USA tour Celtic are doing in July, they are talks of either playing Chelsea in Los Angeles or playing Barcelona in Boston, in addition to the All-Star match.

Most likely Scenario


Lennon-free (Leicseter, MLS, Palace, Sunderland)

Telfer-free (Luton Town)

Gravesen-2. 5million (Everton, Charlton)

Jarosik-1million (Reading, Birmingham)

Miller-1. 5million (Newcastle, Wolves, Everton)

Zurawski-1million (Mainz, Wolfsburg, MLS)

Bobo Balde-500k (Villa, Marsielle)


Sidwell-free (Reading)

Donovan-3million (MLS)

O'Connor-1. 5million (Lokomotiv Msocow)

Brown/ Whittaker-3million (Hibs)

Team 07/ 08

- Donovan- JVOH-


Naylor-Pressely- Caldwell-Wilson

- Boruc-


M. Brown




S. Brown



Arsenal will definitely sign a new goalkeeper next year. It will be akinfeev for 4-7mil pounds. They will then decide not to buy baptista so that Bendtner can break into the 1st team. Wenger will try to get young defender Matthew Conolly more 1st team experience by selling Senderos to Juventus.

Updating Norwich rumours.

With David Marshall out for six weeks, City are looking for an experienced keeper to take on loan-although plans remain in place for Marshall to sign permanently in the summer, alongside current loanee Mark Fotheringham who has impressed thus far.

Rumours linking Darren Huckerby with West Ham are ridiculous, Hucks has publicly said that we are his last club and he has no intention of moving, once his contract with us expires (next season) he will retire.

Norwich await with interest the possible Dean Ashton move to Newcastle (a rumour with definite substance and one I first postulated on here nearly a year ago, to much derision-whose laughing now?) as they will get a good chunk of sell on cash out of the deal-with that in mind, West Ham will look for at least £10 Million-and he's worth it, believe me, hopefully Liverpool will turn it into an auction so we get more!

Dublin will sign a new one year deal with Canaries and get his coaching badges. Future Norwich Manager there. Departures will include Gary Doherty, Youseff Safri, and Ian Henderson. Ryan Jarvis's excellent form on loan to Orient will see him get a decent run of games at Norwich when he returns.

Manchester United are set to have there interest in Fernando Torres hijacked by Liverpool.

I find it hard to believe in the crouch deal as we already have ameobi Ashton is GRs man. Outs will be



MOORE £0 back to Oz

LUQUE to Madrid swap for woodgate

BRAMBLE will be offered a vary small contract and finally have to prove his worth or the door will be shown next summer.

Blackburn will finally get rid of jason Roberts to Stoke for about 500k

Antonio Cassano I hear has been havin secret chats with a certain Liverpool club, not totally up to date on this one but by Friday I may be able too divulge a bit more for you. theyve been seen twice at humberside airport having secret rendezvous strange as it may seem its totally true and when the story does finally break you will all know its me who told you first
