Leeds to sign joel ward from pompey on wednesday on a four year contract for a fee in the region of 500k(21)(17)Just get on with it this has been dragged out for far to longSo he is signing for little Ipswich, dirty Leeds and massive owls?Truth is nobody knows until he signs for somebody on Wednesday (that is the date reported for a decision to be made). According to the press Leeds are still the most likely destination although Wednesday have 1 day to hijack that.He has already rejected Leeds, and Sheff Wed have pulled out. Realistically it is between Palace and Ipswich"little Ipswich, dirty Leeds and massive owls?"

Some people are so immatureSheff Wed have pulled out, and Palace look to have lost interest, Leeds wont or cant pay out £500'000, so we think its Ipswich now in the driving seat, expect Joel Ward's decision by WednesdayWard will sign for Palace trust meSo immature they are worth ignoring!Ward has all but signed for leeds...had a medical today... another cog in the warnock machine which is destined for the premireship...MOT!!He hasn't rejected anyone. If anyone is favourite at the moment it is Leeds due to Pearce and Ward being "two peas in a pod". But nobody knows where he will be going yet.

after a first season in the football league danny kedwell has been linked with a move to crewe and former team afc wimbledon(12)(9)Haha great signing a club on the up... :p notHe'll have another year or two left on a decent wage for Lge 2 - Be very surprised if he came back to us. I wouldn't have thought he'd sign for a northern team - he didn't like travelling to London from Kent when he played for AFCW!


21 May 2012 21:31:47
Dani Pacheco will snub Norwich ciy and moe to serie A newboys Torino. The italians could also move for unsettled arsenal star Sebastien Squillacci(7)(37)It depends upon who the next Liverpool manager is!'star'? 32 year old defender who is slow and can't defend for cheese


21 May 2012 21:30:48
Mansfield Town to sign defender John Dempster on a free transfer,Michael Coulson from Grimsby,Stuart Fleetwood from Luton for a big fee,Gary Seddon from Fleetwood and re-sign Colin Larkin who has been released from Hartlepool.Also players to leave are :Kendrick,Bolland,Bell,Hutchinson,Mitchley,Craven and possibly Smith while Briscoe will be up for sale with Forest Green interested.(10)(7) 

Having failed again to get promotion there is no doubt that the squad will need to be changed, especially with the chairman promising promotion in 2012/13 !!!


21 May 2012 21:25:30

Burnley are close to signing Geal Bigirimana from Coventry City, Burnley made a loan bid that was rejected before the season ended. Now with only 1 year left on Geal contract Coventry are looking to get a good fee for the player.(10)(7)What rubbish, he signed a new four year deal at the start of the season.Not true just signed new 4 year dealHopefully burnley are more intersred in david bellRUBBISH he signed 4 year deal at the begining of the season !!!!!!!


21 May 2012 21:01:37
Blackburn will start their transfers this wekk with up to 12 players leaving and James McFadden and Ramon Nunez coming in.(16)(12)Nunez? You were relegated to the championship not league 1 why would you want a mediocre league 1 player?Actually, why would anyone want to sign for a dreadful outfit like Blackburn? Even mediocre players would do better going elsewhere.


21 May 2012 20:59:38
Izale McLeod to Yeovil after his release from Barnet(2)(22)Hope so hes classVery likely he already said that he wanted to play in league 1How do you knowSaw someone who looks exactly like him in asda in yeovil. I swear it was him!Also heard this, let hope theres some truth in it... but it seems that rotherham and swindon want him also... but they are also fighting over andy williams... id swap andy williams for izale mcleod any day!


21 May 2012 20:56:43
any MILLERS rumours ed(0)(16)Millers unsettle any player possible!


21 May 2012 20:31:13
Matthew Connolly has agreed a deal with Reading
MrRfc(22)(3)That's good newsAccording to who? I am not sure I would feel comfortable with him in the premier leagueI cant say how i know but a few sources have confirmed this. I would hope hes only cover but he did look good before injury. lets hope Birmingham game was down to his injury
MrRfcI thought he looked OK in the games he played. Hardly any of the existing squad have PL experience eitherGetreading (local newspaper) said we are in talks and he is not in first team plans- so very likely he'll come to us for £1 -1.5 mil


21 May 2012 20:20:51
Plymouth Argyle are relying on free agents to fuel their new signings for next season.
some of the main targets include former players Simon King, Damien McCrory, and Ashley Hemmings.
Other targets include
Byron Anthony
Rory Drake
Izale Mcleod
Mark Ellis (Who can be signed cheaply)
Keith Lowe (expected to be leaving Cheltenham)(14)(11)Seems legitI have heard that we are getting Logan from Exeter City after they released him . Dont know if he is any good though .Apart from Hemings and McLeod I don't see any other of theses players making much of a impact


21 May 2012 20:17:20
barnsley to sign darius vassell after his release from leicester(17)(21)


21 May 2012 20:14:41
Burnley are close to signing 20 year old wigan stirker/winger Nouha Dicko.(21)(9)Absolute tripe, we won't sell him. He will either go out on loan until Jan or be part of 1st team squad.Heard that its a definite if as expected rodriguez leaves Burnley....He will sign for us if Jay leaves, or just come on loan to us if Jay decides to stay.No way santos will got to Ipswich, ward is going to burnley, Andrews is staying at west brom and Barrett isn't coming to burnley


21 May 2012 20:07:32
Reading are in talks with Carlos Sanchez and have approached Crystal Palace for Jonathan Parr. The TSI takeover will be completed when Reading officially become a Premier League team.
Reading look to have missed out on Björn Bergmann Sigurdarson after a first bid being rejected. Everton and Aston Villa have been watching him.

MrRfc(11)(8)Just like to add TSI deal is almost 100% so expect announcement soon

MrRfcPlease dont buy j.parrRather we go for Chris Gunter than Parr, solid right back that's also a threat going forward on counter attack. Also seems like him and jem get on great, chat fair bit on Twitter nd allAny other Reading fans starting to panic slightly about this TSI takeover? It's supposed to have been completed months ago and it continues to drag on.No way will reading get parr. But its nice to see so many of our players attracting premiership teamsParr is a fantastic but happy at palace and is going nowhereNot really. It's dragging on because the premier league are taking their sweet time. Plus Reading aren't an official premier league team until the AGM on June 1st so we might not hear anything till then.

I have no worries SJM knows what's best for Reading.Not really, TSI deal is done and dusted as far as it goes between Sir John and them its just the background check goign on and most likely as they have seen what has been done to pompey in recent years they are wanting to be extra careful about it all. dont think it'll take more than a couple more weeks :)No need to worry. The reason for the delay is because we were promoted. The Premier League now have to ratify the takeover as opposed to the FA.I was but i'm not now, my main concern was part of the consortium were turned down for a bid for Everton around 2004 but as they have a lot more financial clout, not to mention the clubs finances were alraedy up to scratch no concerns here.As stated above the only delay with takeover is premier league, but will go through soon. delay doesn't look to have prevented early transfer activity
MrRfcThe Everton deal falling through was nothing to do with Anton or Chris Samuelson. That was Kenwrights fault.Parr wouldnt be welcomed by us fans after his theatrics getting Roberts sent offYou MIGHT have to change your opinions of him soon, ive been told that there's interest and by another source we have approached Palace


21 May 2012 20:04:39
Grant Holt to join QPR for 4.5 million(11)(58)Dream on, this would never happen.Why ?Qpr won't get Holt but he will leaveHolt ? QPR should be aiming higher than that. Del Piero would be ideal as back up to Cisse in the goal scoring side of things.It's almost a done dealWhy won't he go to QPR?Because holt hates qprEven thou he put a transfer request deep down he DOESN'T want to leave, he's having talks with the club to see idf they can sort out 1or 2 little problem Holt has, i believe everything will be ok & Holt will stay at Norwich.Whats almost a done deal and forget holt we dont want holt KEEP HIM !Why would a mid-table team's top scorer hand in a transfer request to go to a smaller club, that should have been relegated ?We don't want him at rangers he 'd empty the canteen on his first dayDon't want him at QPRHolt is a fat lump. half his goals were flukes... I can't see anyone coming in for him, he should stay at Norwich. QPR are looking at better players & will finish above Norwich next season.


21 May 2012 18:59:04
chelsea will land luka modric this summer after miissing out last summer.theplayerwill push for a move and hand in a transfer request to force o move if his request for champions league football is not granted(21)(31)I cant see levy selling to chelseaHe did same last year look what happenedOnly if chelski give us torres +10ml.Torres form at the minute puts him in the 20ml bracket so seems fair.£50million or he just won't sell. Not saying he's worth it, but Levy won't sell to Chelski for lessFor all you crazy spurs fans,you are not a big club,you are over achieving and have got lucky with finding some good players.understand that wen a BIG CLUB comes in for your players,they will want to leave,jus look at modric last season and probly again this season along with bale


21 May 2012 18:55:58

21 May 2012 18:55:35
hearing news that man city will use macclesfeild as a feeder club for young player. two names i have are reece wabara and young lad called harris both played for the under 18s last season and played well glad were going to give our young talent a chance else where cant see any british talent progressing through city any more.(14)(10)Can't see city letting Reece wabara go hes an up and coming talent , seen bobby play for the under 18s fast as hell but can't last 90 minutes already been given a trial too stockport fc ,both too young for league 2 maybe one day thoughReece wabara Is a quality defender will probably progress to the prem so can't see him coming to league 2. Seen the other kid come through the Bolton academy quick legs but very greedy


21 May 2012 18:54:42

21 May 2012 19:39:38
Bristol City are rumoured to be interested in signing Cheltenham Right back Sido Jombati after the portuguese player has had a marvellous first season in Gloucestershire, picking up the player of the year award. He is a attacking minded, quick and composed right back and would provide great competition to Rickie Foster.

Would cost around 200K(7)(9)City need a left back more than a right backIt's Pack we are after not the fella mentioned.
Del boy is up to something at BCFC so watch this guy, he's very, very good.Pack is a very good player. His free kick last week showed that.
However sido picked up player of the season and can also play left back. He is a very useful player and I for one wpuld welcome him with open arms to Ashton GateCTFC fan- if you get sido he will make your first team not at the start but as the season progresses you will see his skill. One of the best players i have seen playing for us and is still learning. Also a really nice guy! Packs not bad either


21 May 2012 19:29:00
Tom Heaton is set for talks with Peterborough after his contract at Cardiff expired.(19)(16)He is heading for Sheffield Wednesday so doubt it.He's had a very average season, premiership, no way!He's going to Sheffield Wednesday mate to be with Dave Jones again.Heaton is signing for Sheffield Wednesday


21 May 2012 19:08:30
Jack rod well going to man united for 12million plus berbatov good business for both parties Ferguson needs new midfielder and moyes needs strike partner for jelavicalso Liverpool interested in berbatov but Ferguson won't let him go there and apparently berbatov wants to join everton anyway according to his agent(9)(48)Good - thank god for thatBerbatov is out of contractWho exactly at liverpool is interested in berba? The manager? The dof? Oh wait there are none, so stop talking nonsense.
JayoHe's not out of contract at all, but can't see this move happening either. More likely Spurs or overseas - Anzhi for example.This is not true


21 May 2012 19:05:05
danny gabbidon has been released by qpr. Danny gabbidon said he wanted to join cardiff city before he retired. This is his chance(26)(5)Very trueHe will join the bluebirds on a two year dealStep up for the guy - prem next year on a sustainable basis


21 May 2012 19:04:00
Shrewsbury Town captain Ian Sharps has rejected a contract and is set to sign for Tranmere Rovers.

He has also indicated no desire to re-sign for Rotherham.(10)(10)Ian sharps and ronnie moore dont get on so its Rotherham who will be signing him.That would be great always confident with himYou can think what you want, i know for a FACT he is signing for Tranmere Rovers due to personal reasons.I know for a fact he is signing for Rotherham United.Currently having a medical at Rotherham


21 May 2012 18:48:45

21 May 2012 18:39:19
Ipswich ins:

Ricardo Fuller - Stoke
Giovanni Dos Santos (loan) - Tottenham
Magnus okuonghae - Colchester
Ben Williams - Colchester
Tomasz kuszczak - Man United
Joel Ward - Portsmouth
Danny Collins - Stoke
Keith Andrews - WBA

Ipswich outs:

Ronan Murray - Colchester
Josh Carson (Loan) - Charlton
Joe Whight (Loan) - Huddersfield
Arran Lee-Barrett - Burnley(1)(36)Why would Keith Andrews leave WBA where he's wanted and playing regular Premier League Football, for Ipswich Town?As an ipswich season ticket holder, i can tell everyone on here this whole squad of players are the worst i have seen yet. the club needs a clean out of all dead wood and as it looks like most of the business conducted this pre-season will be done in the free transfer and loan market, they could do a lot worse than looking at the SPL for the out of contract players.

Motherwell- Tim Clancy & Steve Jennings

Dundee United- Dusan Pernis, Paul Dixon, Scott Robertson, Danny Swanson, Garry Kenneth

Rangers- Sone Aluko

St Mirren- Nigel Hasselbaink & Jeroen TesselaarThe only players at Ipswich that would get into the Charlton team are Lee Martin, Jason Scotland (on a good day), Jimmy Bullard (maybe) and Ricky Wright. Unless its one of those players leave us out of the list of interested parties.Andrews was released by WBA so that shows he is wanted by them doesnt it......Let's correct shall we.

Poster one WBS have released Andrews so really wanted isn't he?

Poster 3 Ricky Wright who I assume is Richard Wright is a shadow of his former self and will to be honest not good enough for any pro team anymore so you kind of ruined your argument about how good Charlton are and being up with current events. As for the rumour it's rubbish"Poster 3 Ricky Wright who I assume is Richard Wright is a shadow of his former self and will to be honest not good enough for any pro team anymore so you kind of ruined your argument about how good Charlton are and being up with current events"

The point illustrates how poor Ipswich have become not how good Charlton are.I would cry if Charlton signed Richard Wright - awful keeper.Keith andrews is out of contract this summer so he is GOING TO IPSWICH TOWN


21 May 2012 18:32:00
hearing manuel fernandes could be on his way back to Everton on a free.

aswell it looks like steven pienaar is trying to get a move back to everton after spurs fans called him a disgrace for congratulating chelsea

also hearing Howard is trying to persuade dempsey to join also.(4)(4)Be sooo happy if we get fernandes on a freebieHope this is true, but, could we also have donoven, PLEASE !Yep you can have him 5 million please ha ha


21 May 2012 18:30:51
Ipswich Town are the frontrunners for the signature of out-of-contract Dundee United midfielder Scott Robertson, according to reports in Scotland. The 27-year-old is expected to leave Tannadice this summer with League One MK Dons and Brentford previously mentioned in connection with the twice-capped Scot.(1)(5)Yes, saw this on TWTD this morning as well, but you missed a further report that said no contact had been made.Know for a fact contact has been made. A little birdie told me!He is going to leeds or brightonBrentford have already held talks and things look promising, He knows Alan Kernaghan (Assistant Manager - Brentford) from their time together at Dundee before he joined Dundee United.Has now joined Ipswich on a 2 year dealAs an Ipswich fan I admit that things have gone downhill recently, however I can't see a player choosing to play for Brentford over Ipswich.He hasn't joined Ipswich on a 2 year deal you egg!

And I could see players signing for Brentford over Ipswich, Clayton Donaldson (Who is shocking) rejected Watford and Barnsley last year to sign for Brentford.
If the price is right and he gets a feeling about a club, then he will join, despite recieving offers from other clubs because Ipswich yes they are a bigger and better club no doubt.Ipswich are hardly a better team than brentford!Clayton donaldson isnt shocking!! what you on about?! haha!Ipswich are a club who spend money but get no where! therefore that doesnt make them a big club.


21 May 2012 18:27:40
Southampton are said to be interested
in the following players:

Ben Foster - £5m
Paul Pogba - Season loan
Carlos Munoz - £1m(15)(2)Pogba is out of contract and leaving permanently to juventusPogba's joining juventusNo, Pogba isn't joining Juventus. Wait and see.The Pogba situation seems to be back and forth, one min hes staying the next hes leaving. And Foster WONT leave the midlands, hes already stated that he wont uproot his family!So pogba is going to choose southampton over juventus?Before every one starts screaming ang shouting did any one think that Pogba could join on loan from Juventus,Havent seen him play but alot of fuss has been made over him yet Man u still brought Scholes out of retirement before giving him a go!


21 May 2012 18:22:08
Real Madrid's Royston Drenthe will have a second loan spell in the Premier League this time with Fulham after a poor loan spell at Everton last season.(13)(21)Loan spell from where? He's a free agent after leaving Real Madrid!To clarify, it wasn't his loan spell that was poor, just his attitude. Virtually all Evertonians would tell you that, on his day, he could be the most exciting player on the field. It was just his habit of repeatedly turning up late (and purportedly worse for wear) to training and pre-match prep that let him down. Very talented but I for one wouldn't have him back at Goodison.Interesting player at his best, but Fulham have other serious targets as wingers/attacking midfielders as well as already having good mature players and young prospects in these positions. I don't think Drenthe is good enough to change that situation - particularly if he has attitude/discipline issues - not our style {Ed025's Note - as the everton ed...stay well clear, he is a loose cannon..


21 May 2012 18:19:16
Bristol Rovers monitoring the situation of Steve Howard closely, who it is thought would be willing to take the step down with the guarantee of first team football.(6)(12)Steve Howard has all but signed for Notts County after his release from Leicester.Why would he drop two divisions? I'm sure there's a number of League 1 clubs who'd happily snap him up.Hope we don't sign himHes in talks with notts county so doubt bristol rovers will win the race


21 May 2012 18:18:42
Nicky Maynard will re-sign for Bristol City for 1.2 Million plus add on's, will rise to 1.6 million,(9)(6)Would be very supprised if this happens!Hmm, so he leaves the no hopers and goes in search of Prem football, he then achieves Prem football and promptly returns to the no hopers, who, btw, couldn't afford him at that price - silly billyThis simply cant happen, dont want him back tbh not after the way he treated the fans and his performances on the pitch last season were dire to say the very least. he may get his premiership 'dream' but he wont be a first teamer at west ham thats for sure. whats this no-hopers anyway? we've been in the championship for 5 seasons with 3 top 10 finishes including a playoff final, annoys me when people who clearly dont have a clue about bristol city post rubbish!This will not happen. Especially not using them figures anyway!IF we wanted him back... We couldn't afford to buy him? We bought him for 2m+.... So why could we now not afford 1.2-1.6m?


21 May 2012 18:16:46
Swindon to sign izael mccloud after his release from barnet(17)(12)Definitely notPaolo will only sign players who work hard, he clearly doesn't fit the bill and we already have enough players sitting on their lazy arses collecting 10k a month for F all


21 May 2012 18:13:16
matt oakley is set to sign for charlton in the next few days(8)(10)Matt Oakley is 34, he is too old for CharltonYoung and hungry? No!Charlton are going to have a squad of 900 players at this rate! get real,Any Charlton fan would know that this is not true.


21 May 2012 18:12:38
Barnsley to sign Paul Quinn following release from cardiff(22)(5)


21 May 2012 18:09:37
Wycombe in talks with Izale Mcleod following his release from Barnet. They are also interested in resigning Charlton CB Gary Doherty & free agent Scott McGliesh.(13)(5)Doherty was released by us so you can have him for free.Unfortunately Wycombe are currently under a transfer embargo as a result of not filing their accounts for last year. Also the ownership / control of the club is very much up in the air at present, so I'd think there's little chance of any transfers just yet.Does that mean Beavon will go?Millwall have but a bid in for him apparently, it's on sky sports news


21 May 2012 18:05:29
official news crawley sign lewis grabban(14)(6)O.K how much they paid for him??????Rumors around 175k but probably be bout 275k


21 May 2012 18:05:17
Newcastle are rumoured to be in talks with the agents of Ricardo Vaz Te Mathieu Debuchy to boost therenoptions as they head to the Europa League also Luuk De Jong will be Demba Bas replacement if he leaves for London(12)(21)


21 May 2012 18:03:39
Liverpool forward Dani Pacheco is to be announced as a Norwich City player on Wednesday after the Adam Drury testimonial match. He is also playing in the match so Lambert can see how he would fit in with the current squad. This news means that Grant Holt has been persuaded to accept a new contract with the Norfolk club and put pen to paper on a new 3 year deal making him the highest paid player at the club.(19)(8)Deffo saw him at ColneyAt Colney to train for Tuesday, so that ^ is a lie. He may join but not definitely.So signing a forward has made grant holt (a forward) to stay at norwich!
does this not add up to any1 else.Sounds like a muppet storey to me ........Not really a forward... more of an attacking midHolt and Pacheco linked up fantasticly together the first time they played with each other and we won 6.0... holty scored a hat trick. after the game he expressed how much he enjoyed playing with him so i would not be surprised if he can't wait to play with him again.


21 May 2012 17:59:56
Jacob Walcott, the 19 year old cousin of Theo, attracting interest from SPL sides following his release from Reading.(13)(5)


21 May 2012 17:58:14
Colchester outs:

Magnus Okuonghae - Ipswich
Ben Williams - Ipswich
Steven Gillespie - Charlton
Anthony Wordsworth - Blackpool
Karl Duguid - Southend

Colchester ins:

Amari Morgan-Smith - Luton
Ronan Murray - Ipswich
Lua Lua - Blackpool
Mark Tierney - Norwich(7)(16)Haha, no chance mate. Tierney was one of our best players till he got injured. LuaLua applies to that as wellDoubt Duguid would ever come to us and I don't think anyone at Southend really wants him.Doogie signed a contract a month agoIts wordworth thats going to charlton anyway he has signed a pre contract and will officially sign on the 1st of julyHope charlton got 7 figures for wordsworth cause col u already turned down 600 k from bournemouth in janAccording to my sources its 800-950k"Anthony Wordsworth - Blackpool" Why would Charlton need seven figures for a player Blackpool are buying (according to the rumour)?Why would duguid come to us and why would we want duguid2012/ 13 squad
GK Doyle
RB Ward
CB Smith
CB Collins
LB Cresswell
LW Judge
CM Robertson
CAM Martin
ST Chopra
ST Sigurdarson

Subs 7 this season!
GK Kuzscack
CB Delaney
RB Edwards
CM Drury
LW Murphy
ST Scotland
ST Dos SantosBlackpool aren't buying him! Charlton ate getting him for 800k+ as we are in the championship and in London, whilst Blackpool isn't a nice area {Ed025's Note - how very dare you...blackpool is lovely!I can't ever see us signing both Doyle and kuszcak (however you spell it). Nor can I see Collins coming back or dos santos on loan. Although I would love to see dos santos back here, he's a real talent. Plus, if he did come back, how would he not make the first team?Dos Santos on the bench are you avin a laugh. Not as though any of these signings are going to happen but I would put Ward at CB. Place Edwards a RB and I would send smith back to New Zealand.Dobbie and Naismith are true as Karl Oyston could be forking out a bit of money to get Blackpool automatically promoted.It really isn't lovely {Ed025's Note - yes it is!..


21 May 2012 17:49:46
Tottenham reject Giovanni Dos Santos is set for his second loan move to Ipswich following a few years with limited chances with Spurs(8)(19)He's going to Brighton or Leeds


21 May 2012 17:48:33
Joel Ward has agreed to sign for Ipswich with the deal being confirmed Wednesday(13)(27)Don't know where you have heard that mate. Load or crap if you ask me. He wants to go to a club going places and will be a Sheffield Wednesday player in next few days.Why on earth would he want to move to Ipswich. He wants to move to bigger club than that.Another relegation fight for him this year thenHe had agreed a deal with Ipswich until Portmouth's administrators decided to keep him. Only place he'll go with Wednesday is the Xmas Outing!Back to league 1 then if he goes to wedsSadly for me as Ipswich fan it seems he is on way to leeds,Trevor birch(administrator)at Pompey says wards 1st choice is leeds and deal is imminent.wednesday are at the back of the queue for ward,why would he go to a newly promoted L1 club when he can take his pick from bigger clubs who are established at championship level.Bigger clubs . Don't make me laugh when have Ipswich been a big club?
You may be established championship side and that's it, he wants ambition and to go higher with a team not stay in championship. We may have been away a while but now were debt free and have money available we will see won't we. 38,000 for a league one game is big in my eyes. What was your highest in a higher league?Leeds or Blackpool.Hes goin to leeds or brightonSheffield Wed club going places?? Ha ha they've spent many years in League One last decade and now they think they are destined to big things. I'm not saying we (Ipswich) are world beaters but at least we have never graced League One.38,000 for Sheffield Wed a league one game is big in my eyes?? 20 000 of their fans came out of woodwork for the most important game of the season and they will be telling everyone in years time : we had 38 000 for a League One game....... Sheffield Wed are a comedy ! Will those 20 000 come back for the first game of the season?He is 100% signing for leeds. I know most peoplke say they have inside information but i actually do as I know the person whi signed the cheque for the transfer fee and it wasnt ken bates.Right, Update, Sheff Wed have pulled out, Leeds are looking shakey as Bates has stated sell before buy, Ipswich are strong favourites for his signatureSame with every team isn't it we all have woodworkers but some have more than others. Simply stating that were moving in the right direction I.e debt free, money to spend , ambitious chairman and manager. Did you say same about Norwich and Southampton when they flew through the championship?Spent many years haha 4 seasons in I don't know hoe many decades. Get your facts right. Everyone has woodworkers just some more than others. I was simply stating that we are debt free, ambitious manager and chairman with cash to spend, hence moving forward. Bet you said same about Norwich and Southampton when they sailed straight by you all from league 1 to prem.Sheffield Wed 4 seasons in League One in the last decade and now they think they're gonna do Southampton or Norwich.... They've always been one of the most deluded group of fans in England... Ha ha, last year Megson was a God after winning a few games in a row.... now they think Mandaric will buy them a Premiership hahaSheffield Wed will not finish higher than 15th next season. Moreover they might be involved in the relegation battle as they have no players who can shine in the Championship..... Madine? don't make me laugh...... We (Ipswich) will easily finish higher than them, any money on it

21 May 2012 17:27:24
Speaking to Filipe Morais neighbour in Oldham yesterday he said morais has three clubs that want him. Preston, Stevenage, and Barnsley. But he has not ruled out staying at Oldham as he loves where he lives in delph and his teammates and is very settled.

I hope Oldham get there finger out and he stays, along with all the other players out of contract that Oldham should be working hard to keep. Eg Simpson, wesoloski, and kuqi.(6)(8)

Having been released by Exeter City, David Noble is keen to stay local and has already spoken to ex-boss Gary Johnson at Yeovil where he had a previous short loan spell. Could be a quick transaction this week(10)(5)Very Likely! Him and Upson in the midfield could be a great combination!This could be a good move, williams and blizzard not likely to play every game. get in there quick GJGood cm and a great partner for upsonHe would be a great signing. Je's quite creative as wellHes average at best if we're pushing for play-offs next year we need to be aiming a little higher than relegated players... hes nothing special but reasonable cover for upson and whoever else takes that midfield slot

Charlton are set to make a shock move for unsettled leicster striker Jermaine Beckford(6)(30)He's not unsettledYes he isNot a cat in hells chance that he will come to little old Charlton - get realVery unlikley!Bigger than leicester, they have just plonked in the middle of the champ for ages when we were finishing 10+ in the prem and your still doing it now despite the money you have spent, cheers for the 6 points in advance, although it feels mean to take points off of little old leicesterHe's not good enough for Charlton, so don't get ideas above your station.Charlton are trying to sign a player from Leicester but, it is NOT Beckford!I hope we keep him next season but not a chance he would be interested in joining a newly promoted L1 club.only club in championship he would be happy to go to is leeds going by his antics at elland rd few weeks back.Charlton bigger than Leicester get real, whats your avg gate?Charlton can have him, he's lazy and selfish on the ball, not a team player, very negative, enough saidHe is joining Leeds.Your av gate doesn't matter man city get less than man u but they're betterHe didn't say better, he said bigger...


21 May 2012 17:12:42
It's all very well saying PDC is going, Caddis, Ritchie..... Are going, if this is you're hunch then its your hunch say so.

I'd put good money on PDC not leaving swindon Town FC for quite some time, yes after fat Sam PDC will be manager of West Ham thats a given, lets keep to facts.

Fact PDC has said he wants to stay for another yr to see STFC into the Championship.

Fact he said a few months ago he was ready to quit everyone was miffed as to what this was, but then it turned out that around the same time Trehoe, it appears accused PDC of racism, which seems to be unfounded.

Fact none of the regular first teamers want to leave, they have all said so.

Fact Mcevely and Holmes have both said that they want to work out a deal at STFC

Andy Williams from Yeovil
Mcloed Barnet(9)(8)Paul Caddis signed one year contract extension to 2014 SSNI'm sure that PDC will honor his contract, he will be aware that he is only one year into a new career and needs to get more experience first. That should be to the benifit of STFC aswell as PDC.Spot on with your comments PDC will do another season with us but his managerial test will be this season as there is a big difference from L2 to L1 but he is very astute and intelligent and i believe we will have another successful season under Paolo then the vultures will be swooping to sign him up.
As you said the current squad of players enjoy playing for him and can see where he is going with the club and they will all stay.
Paolo is an honourable guy and if he gives his word he will honour his contract with us.

charlton will sign westhams nicky
maynard as westham feel he is not

Charlton are VERY unlikely to go down next year.

Burnley have accepted a 6.5M bid from Everton for Jay Rod

Source-Radio Merseyside(25)(23)If we sign him 4 6mil then he better be better than jelly then agen he's only 22 he can improve {Ed025's Note - if he,s half as good as the jelly man... then its a bargain..I am a burnley fan and can definately tell you that Jay Rod is a class player with potential to be a very good standard premier league striker... he would be perfect for everton and i really hope you get him( at the right price 5-7 mill)...We can't afford Madine, they want 3million and gabbidon is going to leeds

Burnley News

Madine-Sheff Wed-1.5M

Jay-Southampton-6M(18)(15)Madine isnt going nowhere
And giles coke is under wednesday not bury
EPIC FAILU wont get pugh on a free this season his contract not up till next summerCeltic are not interested in re-signing ross wallaceMaxine for £1.5m!! You're having a laugh. We've turned £3m down. He's on a five yr contract and scored 18 in each of last 2 seasons (league goals).Coke does not play for Bury,Sheff Wed playerCoke is a Wednesday player not bury. Madine to burnley in your dreams.Above it says he off to everton.come on guys make ur minds up!!Jay never was and never will go to Saints,there are big clubs in for the lad so please behave yourselvesLol for the last time celtic are not signing ross wallaceIn the past couple of week Jay has signed with 5 different clubs at least! I think its fair to say he will move, but where? well time will tell. Saints have always been linked with him, but they are more interested in Hooper from Celtic.Gabbidon I dont think so to old, howe likes young playersGiles Coke is at Sheffield Wednesday...What other big clubs are there interested in jay then?Wont get in swans teamPugh is out of Contract in a years time! Not now! Also you will not sign Madine!Marc Pugh's contract does not run out this Summer, so I don't think you'll be getting him for free."Jay was and never will go to Saints..bigger clubs interested"

Come on let's be realistic. I support Saints so I am biased but it wouldn't be a bad club for him to go to with our emphasis on bringing through talent, decent fans, great facilities (etc. you get the point, I won't labour it - this isn't a self indulgent rant, just hopefully correcting some above idiocy).

Jay R might come to Saints, who knows. And it won't be a question of size or wealth, it will be if the two clubs can agree on a valuation of the player. Don't always make light rumours into a mud throwing match about size of club etc. We're talking about Jay Rodriguez here, not messi.As a burnley fan i do not agree with the above said lists . dont paint us all as the same . however wherever jay does go to i am sure every burnley fan would wish him all the best he is a cracking player and will do a job in the prem . i have no doubt he will go on to represent england at some stage . i think he will go to everton or fulham if they come in with another bid


21 May 2012 16:34:25
Happy for James Husband, to say he's only recently progressed through the youth system with a friend of mine Harry Middleton (1st year DRFC youth, One-To-Watch), being scouted by premier league clubs is massive. Would like to see the young talent play in the first team this year. Also wouldn't mind Jon Parkin back on loan this year if not on a permanent basis. If he does well at Scunthorpe, then surely he wouldn't mind coming back to a bigger club.(4)(4)How is Doncaster any bigger ?


21 May 2012 16:32:27

Also, as matt oakley has departed lcfc, he will consider a player-coach role to kick-start his new career. Derby, Barnsley, Charlton are intrested(6)(13)Yeah, because Charlton are interested in everyone!Charlton are NOT interested in this player! Nor most of the others post on here. We signed 23 players last year because we needed a clear out, it will not happen again (unless the albran works).Nor for Bristol City!

Shrewsbury Town Captain Ian Sharps rejects offer of a new contract ,looks like heading to either Tranmere or Rotherham(8)(6)I hate to say it but it seems true.It's TranmereClose source to Sharps has indicated to me , it's Tranmere. Also stated he has moved for his family.Makes sense for him to go to either club as he was regarded the best player from his time at the millers but seen as though tranmere are in L1 he is set to link back up with ronnie mooreYes its tranmereFamily? His family is settled in Shrewsbury. Its a football decision


21 May 2012 16:26:25
tubbs will not go to rotherham becaue they offerd t they wanted him for 200k and

21 May 2012 16:23:15
The Hammers are determined to keep
Vas Te but Cardiff , Swansea and Everton
want him so it is not looking good for the
hammers(10)(27)Cardiff??Under contract until June 2014, so West Ham don't have to sellWest ham are richer than cardiff swansea and everton and hes a guaranted starter he won't leave {Ed025's Note - he is a guaranteed starter for the hammers....but would not get anywhere near evertons reserves, never mind first team!..Not likely but it could be a great buy for cardiffWhy on earth would Vaz Te join any of those clubs?As CCFC fan this rumour is ridiculous. Vas Te showed great promise first time in the prem, now he is older and more experienced so I can see him being a success in the prem and going to a better team in jan or next summer.Where r these ridiculas rumours comin from Cmon be serious will yaYer 'avin a giraffe !

even if you counted Vaz Te and Carlton Cole combined as one player they wouldn't make Everton's team {Ed025's Note - i agree


21 May 2012 16:17:06

Watford also chasing QPR's winger/striker Tommy Smith to sign him for a third time.

-James Collins from shrewsbury (although he is discussing his future with Shrewsbury)(10)(3)Tommy smith would be a great signing james colins is ten times better then iwelumo so this looks goodSmith and Collins are still possibilities. Collins will depend on whether he is ready for Championship football

Richard Keogh in talks with Bristol City over a £200,000 move.(15)(11)Keogh is too good for Bristol, think again.If he's too good for Championship Bristol City, what's he doing at League 1 Coventry then?
I gather he is getting married to a Bristol girl so it fits!Not really too good for bristol city when he plays for a league one club like coventry and spent 3 years at ashton gate previously... its 500k as well.Richards so good that hes in league one with coventry and we're the only ones to be linked with him! yeah so good! we should never have let him go in the first place, good player but not too good for us!

ricardo rocha, jamie ashdown and benjani released by pompey, balram chainrai portsmouth will buy again(9)(2)Ashdown must be because of wages he is quility at pompeyBoth are excellent players. It's down to wages, age, and the manager's desire to simply start from a fresh base. Personally, think Pompey have made a mistake as they were not particularly high earners.


21 May 2012 15:59:49

Liverpool are considering an approach for Alan Pardew while Paul Lambert,Michael Laudrup,Frank Riijkard and former manager Rafael Benitez are also in the running.(10)(13)Martinez will not go to Villa, he turned them down when they finished above us so definitely won't go when they finished below us.Roma have already appointed a new manager mate and Rafa not in contention according to some journalists.I love seeing how far liverpool have fallen:)getting rejected by every manager they go for.theyre a joke now and only gonna keep gettin worseThe only managers rejecting are the ones who know they are not capable of getting the club into the champions league.Things will change this seasonYeah, the anfield moggy will take over, and be named "Queen Kitty"

Wolves ins & Outs-

Alex Smithies (Goalkeeper)
Emmanuel Frimpong (Midfielder,Loan)
Kenwyne Jones (Striker)
Patrick Van Aanholt (Defender)

Hennessey (Goalkeeper)
Berra (Defender)
Foley (Defender)
Elokobi (Defender)
O'Hara (Midfielder)
Jarvis (Midfielder)
Hunt (Midfielder)
Fletcher (Striker)
Doyle (Striker)(12)(2)So that is most of the first team out then is it ?If we sell fletcher and doyle but only sign jones it would leave us with 3 strikers and 1 of those vokes appears to want out aswell.Kenwyne Jones to Wolves?Lol smithies jones n van anaholt
we got McCarey ikeme de vries henno
ward rekord cranston
doyle vokes SEB cassidy winnall fletcher

so we dont need a new keeper we do need a new left back

n henno wants to stay o'hara told people he was staying at the awards jarvis will only go for very silly money

hunt berra elokobi foley stearman ward henry can all leave for meObvs not a wolves fan posting this rubbish...would have more the list of outs...jarvis at a push and thats for 10 mill if people actually will pay that...fletcher i will be sorry to see go but we shall see what happens with him wouldn't say hes 100% for the ins you say...frimpong would be welcome back jones not a chance can we afford those wages in the championship if we fail at our first attempt and smithies don't need him ikeme all day long"Obvs not a wolves fan posting this rubbish...would have more brains"

He would've been unique.


21 May 2012 14:55:27
Redmond, Ince and Phillips will all go to Premier league clubs this summer. Ince and Phillips to Norwich for 6mil + add-ons.(2)(27)Not to sure about thatI'll have a bet that Norwich won't pay transfers fees that high and that is why Lambert wants outDespite West Ham fans enjoying to boo anyone with the name Ince on their shirt, there are whispers that The Hammers are considering making a bid for young Tom.That's 6 players I@ve just read are going to Norwich. Has Dehlia just got another cook book out?Not a chance!Everyone's going to Norwich, must be loaded, or the players must be desperate - you decide6mil + add ons for 2 players is well within our budget. We spent similar to this on Bennet and Pilkington last year. However im not sure we will go for both if we are interested. We have money to spend which we know, as the board have said we have similar to spend as last season.

We spent approx:
E Bennett - 2 Mil
Pilkington - 2 Mil
Morisson - 2.5mil
Ayala - 800k-1 mil
R Bennet - 3.5 mil
Howson - Believed to be approx 2 mil
Vaughan - 2.5mil
Kyle Naughton Loan fee rumoured 5-800k
Johnson - Free but large sign on fee

So id say we will have again 15 mil + any fees recieved. So 6 mil for 2 players doesnt seem all that expensive for us considering we dont need a major overhaul.There is no way Phillips and Ince will go to Norwich.Hoolahan did lolHoolahan went for £250k, cant see Norwich stump up £3m - £4m when their best player is handing in a transfer requests because he's earning £16k a week. Ince & Phillips are both on £8k + bonus at Pool so they wont be going to the back of beyond unless there getting the same as Holt'They wont be going to the back of beyond'..........this is Norfolk were talking about not the outback in Australia.

My sources so far on Leicester's out of contract players.

Steve Howard: Notts County have already began talks with the striker. But according to my source Sheffield Utd could be preparing to hijack County's bid regardless of whether they gain promotion or not.

Matt Oakley: Portsmouth could go for the former saint. He would give them good balance and experience in the centre of midfield. Other teams in the hunt for Oakley are; Exeter, Chesterfield and Preston.

Darius Vassell: MK Dons are pondering on whether to make a move. Their biggest worry is whether Vassell can last a 46 game season. Coventry and Doncaster are the 2 other teams at the moment being linked with the striker. Though according to my source Vassell is keen on a move away from England.

Chris Weale: Hartlepool, Yeovil, Preston, and Crawley have all made a move for the keeper.(6)(9)Great keeper even at scoring headers for Yeovil from a Yeovil town fan!xComplete garbage about darius vassellLooks likly that vassell will call time on his playing career unless one last payday comes calling


21 May 2012 14:48:18
Swansea closer to agreeing a fee(1MILLION) with Burnley for Chris Mccann(14)(2)Try 33, as in £300,000 he is without a doubt one of the worst players I have ever seen play for Burnley. Before his injury he was fairly decent, now looks scared to tackle, head, shoot and dribble. They can have him.You obviously arent a burnley fan and dont have a clue about football....Chris McCann is a quality player , his injury set him back abit but hopefully next season he will start to show his class abit morePlease take him off us


21 May 2012 14:47:23
Brighton linked with David Connolly after his realease from Southampton.(10)(13)Would be a top signing for us if we could pull it offCome on seagulls sign him up !!Well past his best and not exactly a tall bustling striker that Poyet is after. Hopefully we will stay well clear of Connolly. Yakubu would be nice, could do for us what Roberts did for Reading.Yeah cuz yakubu would play for brighton :/ think about itDavid Connolly was great for saints and probably kick started our promotion this year. He was playing decent until he got an injury and by then we had already signed Sharp and Lee. He's a natural goalscorer and could maybe give any champ club a kickstart out of that league!


21 May 2012 14:46:52

21 May 2012 14:42:39
Norwich City to offer Brighton cash plus Andrew Crofts for the services of midfielder Liam Bridcutt.(3)(9)A number of clubs may be interested in Bridcutt but a swop with Crofts would need £2m+ added to it. Problem is that Crofts can't play Bridcutt's role and would be no more than a squad/bench player. Brighton have moved on since he leftCrofts isn't exactly to Brighton's standards any more and would be a bench warmer if he came back.


21 May 2012 14:42:16
Leicester City are monitoring midfileder Alan Navarro after Brighton confirmed he is not be to offered new contract.(9)(8)Ha ha! Are you Alan Navarro? Seriously. It's not going to happen is it. Good honest pro but for Leicester if they don't throw a million or two at it they ain't going to be good enoughYou may want to check sky sports you so called football fan. Just because it's Leicester you automatically assume they GOT to buy and not sign freebies.

The Argus newspaper are today reporting that Brighton are on the verge of signing Dundee United's attacking midfielder Danny Swanson. Swanson is a much sought after midfielder and libe long Hibs fan - but wishes to play south of the border(8)(5)Erm no it doesn't? Poyet's exact words: 'Why would I sign him when I can have the best attacking midfielder in the Championship?'No they are not! Todays Argus quote:

"Albion were linked with Dundee United’s out-of-contract playmaker Danny Swanson last week.

Poyet responded: “Why would I sign him when I can have the best attacking midfielder in the Championship?"

Get your facts right before you post rubbish on here please!Poyet has pretty much said he is not interested in him.

Poyet- "why would I need to sign him if it looks like Vicente is staying"No it's not!What is the point of posting a blatant lie?Calm down people, calm down. If you click the link to the story in the argus then that story says 'on the verge of signing'.Errrrm !! Yes it does say that. Look at the link that the story takes you to.3 days previous it said that! In YESTERDAYS Argus (21/05/12 when this was posted!) it said that Gus wasn't interested as Vicente is almost certain to re-sign, check the date!!

Yeovil Town defender Bondz N'Gala is attracting interest from a number of clubs after his no nonsense defending caught the eye of several clubs both north and south of the border. Rumoured strong interest from Port Vale and Aberdeen.(4)(9)Bondz N'gala is awful from a Yeovil town fan!xPlease !!

Nottingham Forest are close to agreeing deals for both Hibernian captain Ian Murray and Sone Aluko who is available on a free transfer from Rangers. Other players that interests Cotterill are: Giles Barnes, Kyle McFadzean, Gary Madine.(4)(16)The. Only way you'd get madine is if we wanted rid. You're just not massive enough for himMadine will struggle next season and we have better with blackstock. We need a nippy striker to play off blackstock.Murray can't even get a game for Hibs so why would Forest want a very average SPL player?How are hibs a big club i know we forest fans go on about old times but when was the last time you won anythingGiles Barnes was rejected by forest last year and he's not done much in the meantime has he..And how are they gonna get barnes madine and mcfadzean they have no money hense why all there players are leaving ....Where is the money coming from Notts Forest dont have any!Forest do have money and its Nottingham


21 May 2012 14:22:06
Charlton to offer Rudi Skacel a contract at The Valley.(10)(7)Charismatic player who was worshipped at Hearts but prone to "going missing" in some games.Saints fan here. Skacel can be a very good player on his day.
Problem with his time at Southampton was he kept getting played at left back instead of midfieldI love him whenever I hear Scottish footie I think him and Gary hooper, sign him up!


21 May 2012 14:22:04
stoke city are showing an interest in former west brom midfielder somen tchoyi after his relwase from the midlands club(2)(9)He's well over six foot so he'd fit in well at Stoke. All together now ..... HOOF!!Quality player misused at the Albion, can't believe we've released him one of our biggest threats bad move Albion, TEO TEO TEO's TEO time just someone else's time now1.5 for Graham what aload of crap he is at atleast 6Hoof? another glory hunter who watches from his armchair? shame, i feel sorry for you, you'll never know what it's like to be passionate about your local clubOne thing this site does is shows some idiots up for their lack of knowledge about football. :-) Stoke do deploy wide men probably more than any other Prem side so could see this happeningTchoyi was very overrated at WBA. Threatened every so often but very little footballing intelligence and never looked in control of the ball. Incredibly frustrating player, glad he's been released (from a WBA fan)Class player very under rated at the Albion TEO TEO TEO from an Albion fan big mistake letting him go


21 May 2012 14:20:18
Seems that this window will be quiet for most clubs as according to this MB- West Ham and Southampton are signing up every player going.

9 players set to leave Stoke but no big names apart from maybe Huth who is attracting a lot of interest from Germany and the Prem and Kenwyne Jones who has been out of favour. Fuller will not be offered a new deal and Sorensen may leave after the Euros again to Germany.

Pulis has had a short break and has already contacted several players on his shopping list. 4 names expected to replace the outgoing fringe players along with a young keeper linked also rumoured to be Jake Kean and the already publicised Owen deal. Matt Jarvis will almost certainly be a Stoke player after contact in January's window. A player Pulis tried to sign previously. Fletcher has interested the Potters also but NOT their No 1 striking target.

There may me more business with Stoke and Spurs which was close in the last window.

One Championship players interesting the Potters from MBoro

Two out of contract players are interesting the Potters , one a midfielder and one a full back.

I did break the Crouch/Palacios and Woodgate stories last season just for the record(10)(3)Would be a shame if Huth goes as he has become part of the spine of Stoke City, but if Stoke cash in on him now and get another decent centre-back it would be much better than getting nothing for him next summer.Seems Huth wants to move on with both Spurs and two German club waiting on him

Blackpool are ready to splash the cash this summer on 4-5 players that Ian Holloway believes can fire the Tangerines to the prem via automatic promotion.

Sam Baldock, West Ham, LOAN or £1.5m
Graham Dorrans, West Brom, £1.5m
Steven Naismith, Rangers, £750,000
Stephen Dobbie, Swansea, £750,000

(Blackpool will face tough competetion from numerous clubs for all 4 players signature).(3)(24)Naismith is not 750k no matter what rangers are financiallyFunny. Dorrans for 1.5m, you have to be joking. He's getting back to his best and he is far to good for Blackpool and the ChampionshipDorrans £1.5m? Keep dreaming! Looking more around £4m - £5m for himDorrans isn't going anywhere after just getting back into the West Brom team and getting his form back.Naismith is currently worth 2m only due to the current financial state Rangers are in. Normal process and Naismith is worth 5-6m. Keep dreaming.As a blackpool fan i would hope and dream but oyston would probs only sign dobbie thereSplashing cash doesn't describe oystonDorrans 1.5 million no way. He won't leave anyway he's to good for the championshipSwansea won't accept less than £1m for DobbieIs this a joke.....graham dorrans 1.5m :S

Luke Young to sign for Spurs this summer from Plymouth Argyle for 5 Million plus add ons including a bonus should he play for England, but to be loaned back for the season to gain more first team experience(2)(20)Too good, local lad, we had to sell mason to cardiff but we'll keep young thank you goodbyeYou are having a laugh he is good but not that good . I have heard that Robert Earnshaw may be joining us though .Just signed a new contract, so doubt that! He is better off down here anyways. To get first team football, will develop better then in a youth set upDon't see Young ever being good enough for PL, Believe it when I see it!

Why no news from the Swindon Board or Dicannio???
Reason is there looking to find an instant replacement as believe me all these Fairy stories about Dicannio and his loyalty.
No he is off this week for Money/prestige and a far better club in a higher division.
Nothing new for Swindon,they Lost Hoddle/Wise.
So look for the announcement as he has gone for sure(4)(5)Yeah yeah yeah another jealous Oxford fan - wont happen and he wont be going to west ham. Concentrate on your own club. If Di Canio was going the key players woudlnt be signing extended contracts as they all want to play for him.

So go away and think up another story.Dream on, DiCannio will be here for another season at least!Do you think its a coincidence that this was posted after school time?What a load of Tosh, Maybe he is on holiday as the season has finished, maybe because most players are on hols there is nothing to report, maybe he doesnt like Oxford and maybe neither do we !!Seems that you poxford fans care more about us than you do about your own. Care about your own team and who you playing against other than us all the time, because we are not interested in you. Then you might not be sat in league 2 with a bowling alley and 3 stands :)Another deluded poxford fanOnly a matter of time
before he walks

Burnley are in talks with Giles Barnes after ending his time with Doncaster.(10)(4)Really liked barnes when he was at Derby! Well worth a chance


21 May 2012 13:38:28
West Ham to sign Junior Hoilett on a free transfer. They are in prime position to sign him as he is great mates with Big Sam which could swing the transfer in West Hams favour.
WATCH THIS SPACE!(3)(29)Hoillett would not be a free transfer FACT. As he is under 24 years old Blackburn Rovers at the very least would be entitled to compensation.Bet he doesn't go to West Ham, you've only clinched promotion saturday and you've already started deluding yourselves. I know you won the world cup and all that but face it you ain't big enough to sign the likes of Hoilet. Oh and he ain't free you would have to pay compensation because he is under 24No - he's shown a lot of potential, several established Prem teams are interestedWhat with clubs like tottenham everton and liverpool interested your in dream land mateNo way will this happen.

21 May 2012 13:21:38
Rumours now picking up that Neil Warnock could be on the verge of a shock resignation as Leeds manager.

What is known for sure is that Leeds were somehow unable to provide funds to finance Joel Ward's move from Pompey.

Wouldn't surprise me personally, as I don't think Bates will be prepared to match NW's investment expectations.(14)(14)Small time club nowAbsolute tosh. That makes no sense whatsoever. Warnock knew what he was taking on when he agreed to stay at Leeds this summer. It is true that the signing of Ward has been delayed (which is actually to be the double-signing of Ward and Halford, as I have posted), and this is because Bates does not want to be paying the wages of two extra players in the days leading up to June 1st. Interest from other clubs has meant though that he's set to finance the moves now anyway, so that Neil can get his targets. Pearce was the priority signing, which was why he was snapped up early, but Ward is too important for Neil to let slip away.

It is worth reminding people that Leeds have NO financial restraints outside Ken Bates and his affairs. And seeing as we paid more than 400k for Pearce, Ward's fee is not an issue. The combined fee for the two players is what is causing Ken to fold his arms, but the deal has NOT stalled. At least, it hasnt yet.
wallyThe signing of Ward has not been delayed, he hasn't made his mind up where he is going yet- direct quote from Trevor Birch, nothing to do with Leeds signing Halford. However there are rumours circulating that Leeds are having issues with the fee, posted by Leeds fans.Wally,
You should know by now that Bates does not want to invest huge sums in transfer fees or wages, although all Leeds fans keep on about being a big club because you get great support, the simple fact is that while Bates rules the roost you have little or no chance of promotion to Premier league unless he actually starts to release some funds. The Season Norwich went straight up to premier you had a team capable of promotion had Bates invested approx the same as Norwich did around £4M on new players.
You have since lost Johnson & Howson to Norwich both of whom have proved their talent in premier (especially Howson), and I fear you may well lose Snodgrass and a couple more of your better players simply because they must be getting very frustrated by club policy on new additions.Neil Warnock has no intentions of resigning.
They do have the money for Joel Ward.
Its just down to him where he chooses to go.Get a will never come close to being as big a club as leeds............EVER!.. FACT. Nar stop talking drivel...........muppets. M.O.T. White.E.Yorkshire Evening Post at the weekend said that Phil Hay (chief football writer) has had it from THREE separate sources that Ward has agreed in principle, and what is holding up the deal is Bates being unable to produce the cash, because he's spent it all on corporate boxes we can't fill.

Whatever you say about Ken Bates - he sure is a GOOD businessman.Wouldnt surprise me in the slightest. As a Leeds fan ive seen it all before, think everyone realises that Warnocks not a man to work on a limited budget and thats exactly what it is at leeds.


21 May 2012 13:47:19
Darius Vassell has agreed a 1 year contract with League 1 club Shrewsbury Town.(4)(15)Carnt believe pearson let him go, he was our best player the only player that could take someone on and beat them!Hmmm, that would be our wage budget smashed for the year!Is this serious!Give over im sure there is championship sides that will take him

Leeds United contract rebel Ross McCormack is being monitored by Yorkshire neighbours Huddersfield Town. Town manager Simon Grayson brought McCormack to Elland Road and would be interested in bringing him to the Galpharm should they gain promotion. Leeds have admitted they may listen to offers for the Scot this summer rather than let his deal expire. Rumours in Leeds suggest any sale of McCormack may be used to part fund a bid for transfer listed former Leeds man Jermaine Beckford.(15)(21)Rubbish. he aint going to drop a division. stop making up such nonsence.Bates is too tight, 1st and 2nd division players 4 u now coyrThey dont get on 1 of the reasons he was sack was because he lost the dressing room and fell out with bruce and mccormackNot a small time club just a small time "Chelsea loving' Chairman with no affection for the clubHe will not go to work for that muppet when lower Premiership teams will be in for him.RUBBISH! why would he join a newly promoted team when there a good chance he can play in premObvious McCormack is on his way out as he now has big ideas about himself and has refused a contract. He should remember that he was a sub before he went to Leeds. Leeds can only sign when they sell. Bates is keeping them in the Championship through his refusal to spend and that ain't possible. Beckford has wages that Bates won't pay - christ, he can't even keep the players he already has by paying good wages, it's hardly likely that 'anyone' of any notability will want to sign for Leeds given that Bates does not reward improvement and has a history of failed and empty promises. The club are just a status symbol to boost his own ego, he cares nothing for Leeds United or the club's loyal fans.

Leeds are heavily linked with Free agents Aaron Wilbraham and David Connolly. Connolly, 34, and Wilbraham, 32, were both released by Southampton and Norwich respectively. Warnock is also still continuously linked with Bristol City front man Jon Stead.(8)(16)Apparently Connolly going to brighton.Think you are way off the mark on all three there, better players are being targeted for a promotion push - Leeds have let better players than these go on free's.David Connolly would majorly improve leeds team-saints fan.You got no chance of sign stead he loves it at citySteady loves living in the best major city in England. If Huddersfield came calling then maybe as it's his hometown club but Steady seems to love living in Bristol so I can't see it.


21 May 2012 13:00:42
west ham are looking at junior hoillet and joe cole a very good source tells me,however theres a lot of interest in hoillet but 'big sam' had him at blackburn which could be a big factor in the move. Other few names on shortlist are a return for villas james collins, a loan move for keiran gibbs and an audacious move for citys adam johnson although the latter 2 are dependant on there own clubs signing players in there positions, you heard it here first.(16)(17)Also jamie o'hara is another strong possibility

21 May 2012 12:09:43
Charlton are about to sign James Hayter who has been released by Doncaster Rovers. Hayter, who is regarded as one of the best headers of a ball outside the premiership is very keen on a move down south as he originally hails from the Isle of Wight

He really isn't? and this is from a Rovers fan(11)(11)No! We are not signing him either!

Eden Hazard to Arsenal 100%. Arsenal to break wage structure to keep RVP and land Hazard. Hazard wants regular football and will link up with his Belguim team mate Vermalem.(17)(34)So snub ManU and City for Arsenal? I don't think so.Wenger to tight to get hazard
thats why he aint won anything
for years
and nothing going to changeIf Wenger was serious about signing Hazard he would've done it in 2001 when we were first linked with him. Not now that he's wanted by every club in the world.

Hasnt signed a contract yet and he's on very, very low wages, so any good offer of a long term contract and a decent League 1 wage and he will be off like a shot.I know Roache is good but that's a bit extreme...No chanceIf there was any substance to this rumour then the originator would have spelled Barry Roche's name correctly.Stuckmann IS under contract with PNE so you're talking rubbish!Sell stuckmann he on loan you dingbats on an 18 month contract we got half way through the season when the transfer window was closed

huddersfield town will keep jordan rhodes if they beat sheff united in the play off final? Simon grayson is talking to jermaine beckford about beconming rhodes strike partner for next season only if there promoted(10)(18)Get real Rhodes is on his way and no way on earth would Huddersfield be able to meet any wage demands set by Beckford.Huddersfield will not go up and Beckford will not go down a division so no chance there.
As for Rhodes he will be out of there like a flash either way.Rhodes will stay if they go up but no way Beckford. Silly wage demands and unliked by the fans.They will keep rhodes if they dont gain promotion there chairman said they have no reason to sell

can reading actually sign anyone with the impending take over still ongoing? i thought that any club changing owner was put under a transfer embargo or is tht just a myth?(6)(6)Complete myth !It is a myth. We've just signed McCleary, albeit on a Bosnan.Seeing as we signed McCleary last week I'll go with no transfer embargo.Signing Mccleary was strange though, there usually pics of him and Brian signing paperwork but there was nothingI think it's mainly just that outgoing managers don't want to spend their money on new players if they won't be able to reap the rewards - Madjeski is keeping some shares, supports Reading and has far too much money so he's still willingThere is a little reward for going into the prem, so i doubt Madjeski is dipping into his pockets too much and fair play to him he's a business man and always admited he's not the kind of owner to take Reading to the next level.I doubt he will touch any of his personal fortune to delve into the transfer market, that's why he has sold the majority share. Madjeski alwyays admitted his fortunes weren't enough to make Reading a main stay prem team, especially as his main passion is art.Outgoing managers? Brian's going nowhere. If Anton sacked him he'd really annoy the fans.Might be cause its not fully processed yet but clubs and player have agreed it, remember seeing one of our players tweeting him on Twitter saying be good to have you round the mad stad in a couple of weeks, or something to that effect.


21 May 2012 11:42:02
Reading now face stiff competition from West Ham for targets Whittingham and Rhodes. However there has been a gentleman's agreement between Reading and Huddersfield since January (part of the reason Sean Morrison went on loan there in the first place!) that Rhodes will join Reading after the play off campaign.(9)(15)Malky Makay has today announced Whittingham is staying at Cardiff. (WalesOnline)The transfer window is a long time...a lot can change.They will need a fair bit of cash to sign him as he's only recently signed a new contract.Not sure Rhodes is the man for us. We need cover for Roberts and Rhodes isn't it, neither is Matt Philips. Rumours that Yakubu is coming seem to have dried up. ShameGentleman's agreement - absolute rubbish. Stop making stuff up. Sean Morrison's loan was nothing to do with Rhodes.

Versatile Tunisian Bilel Mohsni of Southend is interesting Watford after impressing last season(11)(3)Mariappa is likely to be leaving so this looks like it could happen.Bit risky he has a bad temperWould be a quality signing and he's desperate to get away from Southend.What makes you think hes desperate to leave southend?Because he hates Paul Sturrock! Sturrock has banned him on numerous occasions for his behaviour (he calls it passion!). Bilel will depart for Watford I believe.He's happy there!He doesn't hate paul sturrock you tool, he loves the fans and said after our play off 2nd leg he wont leave till he gets the club promoted, so jog on thinking you know anything


21 May 2012 12:21:22
cardiff city could sign steve morison for 1million(7)(12)DreamerWould be good signing. I don't think so thoughLol 1 million for someone who scored 9 in the prem that would be a nice dealHe is out of favor with norwich and could want more first team footballYou'd have to pay at least 2 million to be even considered hes scored 10 goals in the prem to be precise and cost 2.5 in the first placeSteve Morison NOT out of favour at Norwich, i know its a rumour site, but this is rubbish at best. Im a Norwich fan & i know for a FACT he is VERY happy at Norwich.

Super rich saudi club al nassr are willling to offer millions for midfielder come striker Tim Cahill because he is an 'asian' player and would bring in spectators and massive shirt sales SOURCE: OFFICIAL EVERTON WEBSITE(7)(14)Dont know wether he would relish the thought of being a fringe player at goodison, think he'll go, along with Neville been the catalyst of all that is good at EvertonJust to be clear - Tim Cahill is in no way "Asian". He is from Australia, which is part of the continent of Oceania.

Not Asia. Thank youHes samoan actually

Swindon town close to bidding for Grant McCann, Alan Lee and are set to sign Lee Holmes, Jay McEveley, Andy Williams and Enoch Showunmi on free transfers(8)(6)Beavon and kee Ive heard


21 May 2012 11:20:20
Blackpool's Matt Phillips, 21, could still be playing Premier League football next season despite missing out on promotion, after catching the eye of Reading boss Brian McDermott.(17)(8)Along with every other club like everton /stoke/southampton/west ham ectI'd be surprised. After just signing McCleary we don't exactly need any more wingersNewcastle are also interested because he was at wembley watching himI dont know if you noticed, but Alan Pardew said after the play off final that he has looked at Matt Phillips, but he thinks that he needs to develop in the Championship for another year first. So Newcastle are not exactly interested yet.


21 May 2012 11:16:14
Town looking for a big centre forward and Jewell believe's free agent Didier Drogba fits the bill quite nicely. Ipswich are likely to offer a 2 year deal with an option of a 3rd on a £2,500 a week. {Ed025's Note - a japanese club have offered him £250,000 per week tax free...i wonder which he will choose(5)(21)Chinese club- shanghai shenuha

Swindon Town captain Paul Caddis has signed a one-year contract extension with the Robins so is now contracted until the summer of 2014(11)(4)True enough!


21 May 2012 10:48:41
As said in the papers over previous weeks now West Ham are promoted they have new targets to improve the squad. they include:

Joe Cole-West Ham haven't had much creativity on the right wing this season and as a fans legend at West Ham and he is available cheap after his loan spell with Lille has ended is moving away from Liverpool but looking to stay in England. Seems like he is the number 1 target. Could be difficult if Liverpool appoint a new manager who wants him to stay.

Nigel Reo-Coker-avaliable on a free transfer. A player liked by Big Sam and would be seen as a good addition on a bosman.

Kieran Richardson-West Ham need a good right back as Joey O'Brien is not always fit and Guy Demel looks a bit out of sorts. Surplus to requirements at Sunderland.

George McCartney-There is a gentlemans agreement with Sunderland that if West Ham were promoted he would sign for the Hammers. Has looked good all season anyway.

Paul Robinson, Manuel Almunia, Craig Gordon and Fraser Forster-New goalkeeper targets if Green leaves. Almunia and Gordon could still join if Green stays as they are free transfers and can provide competition for the number 1 jersey.

Victor Moses-Has rejected a new contract at Wigan. Very highly thought of by David Gold and David Sullivan. Would be willing to pay highly as one of the owners wanted players.

Roger Johnson-Availible cheaply from relegated Wolves as a replacement for Abdoulaye Faye who will be 35 during this campaign.

Nathaniel Clyne-Most unlikely of the targets as he is wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea but bearing in mind that West Ham have a 30 Million transfer kitty a deal does not seem impossible.

Ahmed Elmohammody-Surplus to requirements at Sunderland. A back-up option if the Joe Cole deal falls through.

A Striker-Every transfer window West Ham buy a striker. Possible ones are from the relegated clubs with Ivan Klasnic, Yakubu and Steven Fletcher the best options. Jordan Rhodes linked as always.

Peter Whittingham-Always linked with West Ham in every transfer window but nothing ever materialises.

Only about half of these deals will happen but as mentioned West Ham have a 30 million transfer kitty so all of the deals could happen.
I could see Joe Cole and Nigel Reo-Coker re-signing as well as a 5 million joint fee for McCartney, Richardson and Elmohammody.
West Ham to finish 15th in the league ideally.

COYI(15)(27)Good post, not a Hammers fan myself but most of that makes sense, i'd like to see Joe Cole back at West Ham, perhaps he'd return to the player he once was.Start by getting a new managerSince when was Richardson a right back?Richardson the left sided player is our target at right back? yakubu who the chairmen didnt sign because they said he wasnt good enough to play for the club the year we went down?reo coker who gets booed by us? i agree with joe cole,richardson down the left side and would love moses but the rest is nonsenseKieran Richardson as RB.... I'll have what ever your having .. Richardson is a LB!West Ham 30 mil to spend , dont make me laugh . They have lost a fortune this season by still having a premier league wage bill . Im sure the owners will want to re-coup some of this seasons loss so no 30 mil . Maybe some good free transfers and maybe 10 mil at the very most .I'll happily drive Elmohammady down to London for you...please, please take him.Richardson is left footed so why buy him as a right back?Keiran Richardson is a left-back. He has been converted from a leftwinger where he played when making his debut for Man Utd and England.They dont have 30m to spend said they would of had to spend that to cover the costs if they didnt make it to the prem so get ur facts right..and all the above players will have other premship clubs ahead of the hammers..the hammers will have do what made then bankupt in the first more wages then everyone elseStop dreaming mate most of these players play on the floor, they wont fit into your team. HOOFFletxher supposibly turned down sunderland s why would he go to west ham who have a good chance of getting relegated first seasonCraig gordon's going arsenal as fabianski and almunia are leaving.Moses has not turned down a new deal as he hasn't been offered one, it's just his agent stirring the pot. He will sign a new deal once Martinez confirms he's staying. Also Kieran Richardson is a left back not a right back

West Ham to sign Burnley striker Charlie Austin for 2.5M(12)(22)No. He's too good for wet spamAustin Powers maybe!Why would west ham want yet another striker ? stop posting rubbish . he aint good enough for premiershipNo he is now, because the premiership does not existAustin is going no where, has great potential and the hammers don't need another striker of his quality


21 May 2012 10:24:05
Apparently Steve Evans of Rotheram is now chasing Bournemouth's Wes Thomas after failing in his bid to get Matt Tubbs. Both players used to be at Crawley with Evans. A bid of around £200,000 is apparently being tabled.(8)(4)Have heard this one too.Rotheram? who? oh that lg 2 side! wes thomas is far better then that!Good, Thomas is dog poo, they can have Arter as well.Let them have Thomas and Tubbs and sign someone decent..They can have Thomas for nowt....good riddance


21 May 2012 10:21:14
Charlton are about to sign James Hayter who has been released by Doncaster Rovers. Hayter, who is regarded as one of the best headers of a ball outside the premiership is very keen on a move down south as he originally hails from the Isle of Wight.(6)(13)Interesting option... Wouldn't mind him.We have Kermorgant, THE BEST HEADER OF ANY FOOTBALL.Why would Charlton need another striker who's good in the air, when we have Danny Haynes and Yann Kermogant?Charlton is a long way from the Isle of Wight!Agree with all the comments above apart from the first one, London is hardly close to IOW and Kermorgant is 100% the best header in the football league, and he had a awful scoring record at Donny, someing like 30 in 120? So no thanks considering we want to be in the prem in 3/4 seasons


21 May 2012 10:19:22
ed, what are the chances of michael owen going to leicester do you think? And do you know if Shlupp is going out on loan? {Ed001's Note - highly unlikely Owen will go to Leicester, why would they want him? His main priority is his horses, not football. No decision has been made on Schlupp, I believe he will be assessed in pre-season, though a good loan offer might make up the club's mind.}(4)(9)Owen wouldn't drop down, not while there are Premier League suckers out there wanting to sign him plus, as said, Leicester don't need him. I think the decision regarding Shluup has more to do with Beckford than anything else. Pearson knows Shluup and knows what he can do but with Vardy, Waghorn and Nugent in the mix, one from Shluup or Beckford will probably move on.

There were rumours of a fall-out between Pearson and Beckford during the season but the player still finished 2nd behind Nugent with 15 goals and will no doubt do better next season with a revamped squad around him.

A serious offer for Beckford (£3m from West Ham has been rumoured) would make the decision easy, but Leicester obviously don't need to sell so if the player is happy, it'll be Shluup who heads out on loan, if not, and Beckford leaves, Shluup will stay put.Wouldnt shock me if Schlupp went to Charlton with the Chris Powell link.Owen has stated dropping down to the championship is not an option. Also, leicester have Nugent Beckford Vardy Waghorn Schlupp, so would not want another striker of this form. Pearson looks to be assembling a youthful squad and has also said that he will keep fair play regulations in mind, something that Owen's high wages will make difficult.Oh my sides are aching from laughing at the Michael Owen idea. If you were him would you really go to Leicester.


21 May 2012 10:01:42
nick barmby to sign 1 year deal to play at hull, the club hes supported all his life.

I have seen on TV2 here in Norway that Bjorn Bergmann Sigurdarson is interesting Everton, Ipswich and Anderlect. He plays for Sogndal.(13)(3)He plays for LillestromNo...he plays for Lillestrom SK.No he doesn't ... He plays for Lillestrøm. He scord against Sogndal yesterday.Add wolves and reading to the list.Sorry, my mistake. LSK were playing Sogndal last night. He did score the only goal of the game. He now has 11 goals in his last 5 games.He plays for lille so how can this be?Also interesting wolves and reading, but said in an interview that he wanted to stay in Lillestrom until a prem club came in for him {Ed025's Note - reading are a prem club..Solbakken tried to sign him for Cologne and will try again now he is at Wolves, only Wolves have the money, Cologne wouldn't pay the fee.Does anyone know how much LSK are asking for him?Looking at this guy on youtube he looks pretty good. Would be a big gamble for a team to place in a punt of 4m though.


21 May 2012 09:57:54

21 May 2012 09:01:24
West Ham interested in Man City winger Adam Johnson on a permanent or loan deal to add creativity to the right wing as the currently have none. Collison is a good player but his crosses are not great and Vaz Te is a striker(18)(20)Join the cueWest ham will be intrested in every 2nd rate player..but fail to attract any1 with any real classWhy would Johnson go to a club just promoted? He is a top player which is why he is at city, he isn't going to go to a team like west ham who are likely to just drop back down.Johnson is an excellent winger - he will want to play for a Europe-challenging team, top half at least. And there will be plenty of offers from those sort of teamsWest ham can't afford johnson, its as simple as that.


21 May 2012 09:00:15
Ipswichs Damien Delaney off to Leeds on loan for the season.(5)(19)Leeds won't be signing players on loan this seasonHave him, he's a donkey.Given we only have 2 centre backs inthe whole squad I doubt this somewhat


21 May 2012 08:58:13
West Ham to re-sign ex-players Joe Cole and Nigel Reo-Coker as well as free agent ivan Klasnic, Jordan Mutch and Danny Simpson. these transfers are realistic targets but West Ham are also looking at Matt Phillips, Tom Ince, Victor Moses, Ahmed Elmomammody, Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Guthrie, Wilfred Zaha, Maynor Figeroua, Hugo Rodellga and Adrian Marriappa. After the first 5 targets West Ham might get 1 of the other 10 if they are very lucky,

COYI(10)(18)I really hope we do not go and get x players as they are now too old and past there BEST.Rio could join as well if utd sign a defender from montpellier,he will take on a player/coach role at the end of the season if it goes through.sam is trying to hijack readings bid for marriappa with baldock as bait.expect west ham to bid again for tevez,zaha & whittingham although all unlikely to sign.I live in Australia l am a mad hammer supporter l would defenetly want J.Cole back Pederson, A.Johnson ,K Richarson .H.Rodellega ,V.Moses and A Experience tall DefederPie in the skyDeluded hammers thinking they are a massive club that can attract top players, only just got promoted and will probably go straight down again. Dream OnWe are a Big club, bigger then all of the prem apart the 2 manchester clubs and Chelsea, Arsenal. FACT

Reading FC - Adrian Marriappa will sign a contract early this week after the two clubs agreed a fee of 1.8m with add ons should reading stay up in the first season.(13)(14)Not a chance that Watford would bet a penny on Reading staying up - having seen you twice last year - Wolves look a good side!Yes we were obviously terrible last year. So terrible we won the league.....Reading are better than Watford. If we are the only premier league side to make an offer then he'll be off to us.Such a terrible team that we overcame a play off final defeat by winning the league the following year. Get realistic, you are just another one of those fans that talk rubbish without knowing the facts.Mariappa may be joining you, but he's away on International duty at the momentWe were so bad we conceded the least amount of goals in the league...TEAM CHEMISTRY
100 :pOuch - hit a nerve there i think - honestly if you lot think that you have even half a chance - start taking some anti psychotics now - the championship was a terrible league last year - yes you won - but look who was second - you don't have a prayer between you - you will need to spend v v v big just to stay up - name a single player in your squad who is Premier League quality - the nearest i can get is Kebe - the rest are too old or too slow or too bad!Don't worry Reading, their just jealous fans. I would give you a massive chance of staying up. Just look at the 2006/07 season, it was your first time in the premier league and everyone was writing you off straight away. But you surprised everyone by coming 8th, closer to champions league than relegation! Yes you were a bit lucky winning the league instead of us (southampton) this year, but I'm backing you next year :)Wow...kebe karacan pearce connolly gorkss leighertwood le fondre roberts mcanuff...need i go on?This Watford fan slagging Reading off. Is he for real? Take a look at the final league tableSecond Southampton a team with a bunch of history and a massive club, third West Ham, wasn't a bad year this year , was tough cause at least all top half of the teams were decent squads.Id like to point out that Kebe is nowhere near our best player, in fact we looked a better team when McAnuff took the right side and Hal Robson-Kanu took the left. You clearly no nothing about football. A teams success is not based on player ability alone. I dare you to try and find a team with better chemistry or work rate then Reading. We Reading fans will be the first to admit that we do not have the best players, but thats not what Reading is all about. Thankyou to the people that are not jealous of our success and I wish your teams the best of luck in the future as long as it does not mean relegation for us next season.Reading DO NOT want Parr, especially after he got Roberts sent off at the end of the season.I don't like kebe

Manchester United a set to complete the £3m transfer of Nick Powell from Crewe. Ferguson is looking to loan him out to a championship club as soon as he buys him. Front runners at this stage to loan him are Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

Manchester United are also now close to the capture of Nathaniel Clyne. To stop it from going to a tribunal, the two clubs have agreed an initial £2m fee, rising up to £3.5m depending on appearances.(22)(19)We wont sell clyne for 3mill he is worth at least 5 at the very lowest anyway clyne is out of contract so why spend money when you can get him for freeHe's under 24, so United have to pay compensation. ^We would buy him for £2m to avoid a tribunal as he stated. It is an easy way of settling a dispute, outside of court.Is Clyne good enough for United?

I guess the £3m to Crewe will save them from going under.

Chris Powell looks set to bolster the Charlton Athletic back-line with the signing of Norwegian U21 starlet Vegard Forren. A cultured left footer, Forren has shot to fame this season under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer at Molde FK.

It is believed the centre back, who was closely monitored by Everton back in 2010, would command a fee in the region of £750k.(10)(3)Hes worth at least 4m! hes world class!This would be a great signing if it's true!I'm not saying it will happen but this looks to be the most likely of all the rumours on here."hes world class!" OMG some one does not watch a lot of football!


20 May 2012 23:35:04
Charlton are set to beat Ipswich and Watford in the race for Sam Baldock's signature. The Addicks are believed to be willing to part with up to a million pounds (incl. clauses) to strike a deal with the Hammers, whereas Ipswich and Watford were believed to be interested in a season-long lone deal.(6)(23)Thats because west ham are interested in a season long loan deal.Good we need to sell him ang get more money but do a millionThat's correct, Big Sam only wants a loan deal for Baldock, so Ipswich have offered to have him on a season long loan, to get him games, just like we done with Mark Noble, we allowed him games and he aint looked backIts on the bbc webisite if you wanna lookAdrian Marriappa is in Jamaca playing for the National Team so he wont be signing for anyone untill he returns in a couple of weeks so no deals are doneWhat has "Adrian Marriappa" got to do with it?Nothing on the bbc website so you lie!Yes thats is true Baldock will sign for Charlton in the next few days or So cause im one of his mates.


20 May 2012 23:21:20
Watford rumours---
Adrain marriappa to leave for around £3.5/4 million. Watford also looking to offload chris iwelumo after a dissapointing season.

In response they are looking to sign either sam baldock or nathan delfonso on loan for the season. Also are hoping to tempt james coppinger from doncaster after there relegation to league 1.(3)(17)Coppinger is on contract with Doncaster until 2014, and Watford are only looking for out of contract players and loans after the signing of James CollinsWe don't even need delfouneso! Buaben, Hogg, McGinn returning, Eustace already compete for centre midfield. ND is not a striker either so I dont see where he would fit it.


20 May 2012 23:03:22

Jay Rod from Burnley to saints defo (undisclosed fee) will be revealed this week as now they can sign players as play offs has finished.

Pugh from afc Bournemouth to Burnley replacing Jay rod. Around the 1 mil Mark(23)(18)Nonsense. Rodriguez might go to Saints or he might end up about at any one of about half a dozen other Prem clubs. Nothing is yet decided. Quite happy for people to make their own minds as to who's info is correct and there's quite a simple way to check - if we get to the end of the week and there's been no announcement, this is just another posting from an ill informed, over excited, Southampton fan. Getting a bit bored now.Who is Jay Rod? I know Burnley have a player called Jay Rodriguez. Is he the forward that plays with ChaAusHow will pugh, a winger, replace jay rodriguez, a striker?Haha a million for pugh your having a laugh bournemouth would have to sell him for much less than that try about 300,000 !


20 May 2012 22:31:43
Middlesbrough could sign Glenn Loovens depending on wage demands and budget(14)(5)I heard that he was also linked with Sheffield Wednesday.Aye he's in demand, solid defender bound to have a few in for himHeard from a Cardiff City fan (Loovens used to play for them) that he is a solid defender, good in the air and good with the tackles. Never afraid to go in for the challenge; just what we need.

Watford Rumours:

-Watford have asked Aston Villa for a possible loan deal for Nathan Delfouneso. Watford are hoping for a season long loan.

-Watford are hoping to sign young Shrewsbury Town striker James Collins, Watford hope to sign the forward for 450k plus add ons.

-Watford will accept a £4.5million bid from Reading for defender Adrian Mariappa. Mariappa will sign a 4 year contract at Reading.(13)(9)4.5 millon? having a laugh?2 million max for mariappaWe already rejected around 2.5-3.5 mil in january so fat chance of 2 milI heard 2.2 possibly rising to 4.5, over time it would probably equate to 3.5m in realised revenue for the clubNo squabbling - neither of you know! - it will be more than 2.5 - but it won't be 4.5m eitherMariappa is not 4.5m!2.5-3.5 seems like a big difference...Dont you know the exact amount? Reading wont pay 4.5 mill for anyone before the takeover is completed let alone an unproven prem player.2.5m-3.5m is a big difference..... but transfer fees are usually undisclosed... especially ones that don't even go through.Mariappa is a good player, but £3m-£3.5m is the most Reading would spend on him. If he was worth £4.5m then I couldnt see them playing thatI wish we could of got delfounsoThe transfer will go through for less than 2 million around the 1.75 -1.8 mark. He is a good player and 2 million will represent value for money.Prices are inflated in January anyway. £2m tops, and I'd expect no more than £1.2m up front. Good championship defenders don't go for much, just look at Gorkks, only cost £900kAmes collins £450k ? sorry why ?
hes on a free and will be compensation.
get your facts right!^ They're saying that the compensation is £450k obviously. Though I do think that that sounds steep.

Matt Mills went for £5m and Mariappa is arguably a better player. They overpaid but Mariappa is worth more than £2m and we've rejected higher bids so don't get your hopes up Reading...all that promotion money will loosen your purse. Competition from the likes of Wigan, Southampton and others will drive the price up too.If a confrence striker is 1million then that isnt steep


20 May 2012 21:38:02
man United to offer Van Persie £200k per week and Arsenal £27million(24)(62)Nope.Van Persie will become another overpaid City mercenary i.e. bench warmer.Behave.

Ricardo Fuller to sign for preston on a ee?(8)(31)Nope.You mean free mate absolutely no chance.He's off to Wigan or VillaFirst have heard re Villa- especially now they have no manager so how do you work that out?

Sunderland have made a passing enquiry as have Blackburn.He needs to be realistic, he wouldnt get played at a prem club, and meets westley description of what he wants - free, tall experienced. used to be a north end man. you never knowAbsolutely dead in the water!Fuller is one of the best players we've had in recent years, but there's no chance of Westley signing him.Agreed to go to Wigan as long as Martinez doesnt leave.

southampton manager was at the play off final yesterday looking at ince and phillips, any deal would probaly see puncheon going in the opposite direction(26)(13)Not a chanceHe was at the final, Ince or Phillips would be ideal signings..Would be a coup if we managed to buy one of them.Could be or he just wanted to watch the match :PSouthampton are already signing 57 new players for next season......just think of a name and some Saints fan will tell you how big a club they are and that the player cant wait to join......just not going to happenSouthampton wil sign 5 or 6 new players before the new season but theres probaly 12 or more players there looking at right now, someones got green eyes there lolAlso many skates come on here pretending 2 b saints fans cos as all true saints fans no NC does his business behind closed doors eg hooiveld and tad lee -no one saw them coming^^ behaveHow could he be at the play off final when he was scouting the talent on display at the CL final. Private jet with the boss maybe...drogba, van buyten and that left back bayern played I heard ;). Real saints fan.Adkins was at the play-off final, im sure ur a real saints fan ;) mayb radio 5 live were talking about a different nigel adkins being at the game lol

fitz hall anthony gardner and zat knight all coming in this summer apparantly warnock wants 4 big center backs and its rumoured he wants them 3 along with jason pearce battling for 2 centre back spots.he sees young lees as a right back and wants him concentrating on that position next season hopefully with joel ward.all coming from a very very reliable source.(12)(11)LOL a "reliable source" also said Leeds have to sell before they buy. Stlll Norwich will soon a come a callingHall likely,Knight perhaps but Gardner, I doubt he will come to Leeds.

Manchester city will make a 25mil bid for arsenal superstar robin van persie but there is also rumoured that Barcelona and real Madrid are interested!(36)(16)Anzi offerd 45 million he can go to them if city or who ever top that then they can have him. if he does not sign for arsenal again.I don't think he would be tempted by a Russian club and city are reporting to give him 300k a week!


20 May 2012 20:27:49
Southampton are holding talks with Crystal Palace with the possible sale of Nathaniel Clyne. Southampton will offer £4m, plus Lee Barnard and Danny Butterfield to help the deal go through.(23)(19)Y would they offer that When he a free agent in the summerThey have to offer something because he's under 25They would get him on a free, but I reckon Palace would take the money and players in addition!Could happen, would be very happy to see him in a saints shirt but can see him at a top team.When someone produces a Saints rumour and detail a fee you know it is rubbish. They do not give any indication of what is offered or paid for a player-always an undisclosed fee.They would not offer two players + 3 million for 1 player no matter how good he isI am a saints fan and although he would be a decent signing he is going to a higher club. Manchester United had an offer rejected in January but i can see him going there on a free now.

peter coates has said stoke have interest in owen and wolves have said that 2omill bid would be accepted for fletcher and jarvis

my source sentinel newspaper (local)(16)(9)Better off sticking with Jarvis & Fletcher , twenty million is a good deal for both players.Owen is too injury prone.Stoke seem to have a pretty big squad so would they have to sell before buying ?20 mil for jarvis and fletcher is not a good deal mayb 10 - 15 mil otherwise id bid for victor moses and jermain defoe

Norwich city defender Marc Tienery looks set to leave Norwich next season on loan, most likely back to Colchester as part of a sort of peace offering over previous events. Tienery has failed to impress in the premier league this season for me ~ Frank87NCFC(7)(15)Cant have been that bad played every single game he was availableThe original poster is clearly not a Norwich fan. He was one of our stand out players in the first half of the season, right up until his injury. Will 100% not be leaving.I suspect there have been some issues with this player. He may leave in the summer.Tierney a very good left back one of the best attacking defenders norwich have had for many yearsIf he leaves it will be for non football reasons. Know one coyld fault the way he has played.Ask steve morrison what the problem with him is, i bet he will tell yaI think he has really stepped up for Norwich this season and agree any move will be for non-football reasons. I won't repeat the rumours i have heard as its not in anyones interests for it to come out. I have also heard his injury has been overplayed and it is off pitch reasons which have kept him sidelined.Tierney is off, due to off field issues his injury was nothing
It is due to the whole situation with morrison and tierney holt wants to go he feels club havent backed him in the situation and the same reason.until the last couple matches holt and morrison were never on the pitch togetherIf Tierney is off it is to a prem club not silly little ColchesterYou say 'silly little Colchester' but you do realise Norwichs team is built on Colchester foundations. Norwich all in truth should be ashamed that their success was built on alledged illegal doings. I hope somone like villa come along and poach lambert without your permission and aload of your players, you can then know how 'silly little Colchester' feel

charlton will offer millwall paul hayes
for the swap of danny n'guessan.(7)(5)I'd like to see it happen, but i think Millwall are more sensible then thats.He will be aloud to leave, but im quite certain there will be a fee or a swap and fee with jonnie jacksonJohnnie Jackson? In your dreams.Jackson would be a bad deal he's captain and twice the playerHis a league 2 player he might be good but not championship.Ha jackson will not go millwall? why would he? hes finally in the championship he dont want to go back down next yearPaul Hayes and johnny Jackson for n'guesson.. I'd take that"He will be aloud to leave" oh the intellect of the Millwall supporter.Shame it will never happen then ^^^"he will be aloud to leave" was about N'guessan.

Jackson will be similar to bailey. can be at a higher club""he will be aloud to leave" was about N'guessan." You cant make this stuff up can you, brilliant!For gods sake,it's allowed.Yes I am millwall,we are not all mindless thugs.Why do charlton fans take the moral high ground on intgellect. you employed iain dowie.......... er hello thats not vey smart

Grant Holt's agent has released a message saying they are demanding higher wages or wanting a club who will offer more wages.
But, remember what happened to Rooney? He asked to leave. A few weeks later he signed brand new deal with more wages. Yes, I know there's a big difference between Holt and Rooney, but still.(25)(7)I've not seen any of those Norwich fans who said that Holt loves them and would never leave posting much lately, they're probably all feeling a bit silly now to be honest.There is also a big diffence between Man United & Norwich, Holt may be able to do better than Norwich, Rooney's choices were limitedIs grant holt leavingHe has a lot of front for a 31 year old in his debut season. I think he is looking for a final big pay day as he will be unheard of by next season. Another Emile Heskey/Kevin Phillips, One good season and thinks he is bill big balls.Is the "billy big balls" post from a Norwich fan, getting a little bitter about Holt now are we.The agent's statement did not say that at allThe agents statement on the radio show was that holt wants to stay at norwich and is having meetings with David McNally to iron out the issues which have prompted the transfer request. He may leave, he may not

Southampton are interested in signing
rangers striker Sone Aluko for a fee of
3 million pounds. Even though Aluko has
only been at rangers for 7 months, he
is interested in playing in the premier
league with newly promoted southampton
and is desperate to get away from the
financially stricken club. {Ed007's Note - For the last time, Aluko is out of contract, if he leaves Rangers there will be no fee involved.}(5)(20)The fact he is out of contract may change this a tadGood player and he's youngAluko paid to play for Rangers out of his own pocket last season......desperate to leave...hmmm......he will be rewarded handsome if he stays as Rangers can still re-sign out of contract players who were allready at the club !Rangers have an option for a two year contrct


20 May 2012 19:40:51
Following the on-going financial problems at Rangers, i've been told, by my reliable source, that Sone Aluko is set to join Ipswich Town.

Although he recently came out and stated he would like to carry on with Rangers this season, he also knew that it might not well happen, and Ipswich have jumped the queue.

Im told he is set to sign a 2 year deal, with an option 12 month deal on top of that, by wednesday this week. Should be down to complete his medical tomorrow/tuesday.(15)(15)You're 'reLOLiable' source is not very reliable.

He will go to a PL club, not a FLC.Hes going to leeds or brightonYou sure Charlton aint in for him as well, they seem to be after every player going at the moment lol

20 May 2012 18:51:58
Sources claim Sanchez, Mariappa, Parr are very close to being a done deal at Reading.

John Guiedtti may join on a season long loan, if a deal for Rhodes cannot be agreed

Mark Davies is set to join after takeover is claimed

Jay Rodriguez rumored if this fails Stephen Dobbie may be signed(12)(21)Most of that is rubbish!- Mariappa is bang on.

-Sachez is 'rumoured' on. Medical apparently this week. (apparently)

- Parr almost joined last summer, but talk of going back in for him is just speculation.

- The rest is nonsense.Rhodes is way out of Readings depth and anyway they wont be able to afford the 15 million pound price tag we want for himI doubt Jonathan Parr would want to join Reading we were all booing at him at the palace game when he got the ball after jason roberts got sent off for elbowing him in the face.To anyone who thinks Rhodes is worth £15million is complete trash. He is only proven at League One level. I'd rather pay £15mil for someone actually proven at Premier League level like Darren Bent. Although I guess huddersfield fans value him at £50million and Torres and £250million.Personally I'd love to see Guiedtti and seeing as though city are just loaning him out and not giving him first chance and lets face it most likely wont get into it could be one to go for :) 20 goals in 23 this year is a great stat!15 million for Rhodes hes good but hes not that good! come on that has to be a joke? 5 mill tops and even then who ever gets him is over paying for a proven LEAGUE 1 player.True I went to that gameWe can't sign parr...everyone at the madejski hates him since he got roberts sent off!15 million price tag? Give me strength. You're totally deluded.Jordan Rhodes for £15m ha. You're having a laugh. He's worth £3m maybe £4m max. Thats saying he is more than twice as good as Gylfi Sigurdsson who banged 8 goals in half a season for SwanseaLOL At the bloke who thinks Rhodes is Better than Gylfi!!£15 million get real.

20 May 2012 18:43:18
Reading to sign:-

LB-Jonathan Parr (currently negotiating)

CB-Adrian Mariappa (almost done deal)

CM-After Butterfield rejecting 2 year deal, attention switched to Mark Davies of Bolton, but he is also wanted by newcastle, meaning attention may again be switched to Henri Lansbury.

CM-Carlos Sanchez (contract negotiating)

ST-A large chunk of the TSI budget is believed to be spend on a big out ant out goalscorer with Jordan Rhodes/ Steven Fletcher the main two targets, with Yakubu also rumoured.

ST-Michael Owen was to be expected considered by McDermott but the transfer is highly unlikely. Stephen Dobbie on the other hand looks set to join and is currently negotiating a deal with swans allowing him to leave(13)(15)Believe it when I see it!No transfer for Owen - he's a free agent
Rhodes is about your level - NOT Fletcher - he's off to one of the top six clubsSince when has Rhodes been a big out and out goal scorer?

Certainly a very different sort of [player to the other two strikers you mention.Your not getting jonny parr!Butterfield has not rejected any offers yet
as no offers have been put to him or his agentNo way are Palace selling Parr. He's resting after playing 70 games last season and says he loves being at Palace

He is getting offers from decent championship clubs, your 'reliable' source is utter tripeJust watch. Keiran Agard is close to joining PNE too..

Barnsley have around £2.5m to spend:

Vaz Te - £500,000 (plus £500k for going up)

Butterfield - £1.5m Tribunal (to Toon)

In :

Norwood - £500k
Hayes - free (inverness)
Doran - £300k (inverness)
Westcarr - £235k (chesterfield)
button - £200k (spurs)

Digby to sign 5 year deal !!!!!(12)(14)Vaz te willNOT sign for barnsley when he has prem football beckoningThink this post was that Barnsley are going to get another £500000 for Vaz te cos Hammers going up not they are going to sign him!He was just saying what we have got for vaz te now hammers got promoted you numpty.What makes u thing will get 1.5 m for Butterfield if goes to tribunal more like 300-400k.Can't see Barnsley adding such a clause in Vaz Te transfer deal with the owners they have.Has a west ham fan makes perfect sense ,considering they have been in the top3 most of the season to get some add ons didnt pay over the odds for himHaha westcarr isn't worth that much!No chance on barnsley having that much money to spend. most money i have known then to spend was when they got hume and that did not realy work out for us. stop dreaming and open your eyes, barnsley are not going to spend that much money even if they had it. they might spend around 200k on 1 player, a few player that are out of contract might join us aswell but that about it!Why spend money when you dont need too, we picked vaz te up for nothing< I repeat nothing and sold him for £500,000, in six months, you dont need to spend to aquire good players, youve just got to have the right man in the managers seat!!Digby signed an new deal in jan think it was a 4 year contract so y would be sign an other?If Barnsley offer anything for Westcarr I would be very suprised after a very poor season at CFC


20 May 2012 18:07:30
Sone Aluko could well be on his way to championship side Ipswich Town for a fee believed to be in the region of £1.2million. This coming after Ipswich registered their interest in the Nigerian last Thursday, with Neil Alexander and David Healy giving an insight on the club as well as former Wigan man Lee McCulloch expressing his respect for former manager Paul Jewell. Kyle Bartley could also make a loan move to the Suffolk club after interest in the Arsenal CB last season being renewed.

{Ed007's Note - Aluko will be available for free. His short term contract with Rangers expires this window and Rangers are struggling to meet the terms of the pre-determined contract offered to Aluko when he signed in November.}(3)(9)I did hear about Aluko heading there. Would be a very good transfer especially if on a free. Will be sad to see him leave though especially after his performance against St Johnstone last saturday!Rumours that leeds are also making an offerWouldnt suprise me, Warnock and Jewell same to have the same transfer targetsGoing to leeds or brightonIf i were aluko i'd move to a top championship club/bottom half prem team cos he's been doin gr8 recently


20 May 2012 17:58:34
Some fairly reliable transfer gossip:
Lambert will stay as well as Holt. Lambert has identified 5 permanent signings to bolster his squads depth and quality. He wants Robert Snodgrass but will have to pay over 6m for him which is a significant proportion of his budget. Naughton will either sign on a permanent, not on loan. Curtis Davies is the man they want at centre half and will bid about 3m for the Birmingham player. Gunter is high on Lambert's wanted list again but faces competition from Southampton and Swansea for his signature. Luke Chambers is almost a definite to sign on a free. A striker may be signed with Doyle and Beckford being touted but if Lambert cannot find the right man he may look at the loan market.

Mullins and Connolly will be signed permanently. Along with the already signed McCleary, incoming will be Mariappa for 4-5m and Butterfield from Barnsley. Jay Rodriguez is being looked at as well as Doyle from Wolves but Rodriguez is favoured at the moment. Stephen Hunt is being linked but its doubtful he will sign. McDermott still wants a RB and Wide Midfielder but names have not been heard yet.

They are willing to bid as much as 8m for Sigurdsson but Newcastle, Aston Villa, Arsenal, Fulham, QPR, Man U and Liverpool are all holding interest in the Icelandic midfielder but his first option is to return to Swansea. Rodgers will try again for Bates but will not overpay for him, 3m at the max. If not he will go for Collins of Villa but again will not pay over 3m. Caulker wants to return to Swansea but Spurs are not likely to allow him to leave on any basis. Marvin Emnes will likely sign for around the 3m mark. Gunter and Clyne are both wanted by Swansea as well but the stumbling block may be that Rodgers cannot agree a first team space which both are currently looking for. Swansea will attempt to sign another striker, likely one from abroad as Rodgers is running under a tight budget and cannot overpay for Championship or veteran Prem Strikers. John Guidetti is wanted on loan from Man City and a contract offer may be made to Andy Johnson.

The Insider(12)(14)Personally Mullins never really impressed me and as hes not exactly young hes not worth giving a chance, Conolly worth a punt if we can get him for a decent price but personally I'd rather the likes of Ben Mee (Burnley), Mariappa rumour looks like it has some substance, though at the moment i've heard its just a call to Watford as to the availability, no talks with agents or anything yet, Jay Rodriguez is worth a shot, Doyle may be too but again as long as it's at a decent price, Hunt's a no go, still comes aroudn to watch Noel play but very much doubt hes coming back, as for your wide midfielder comment, we just signed him, McCleary is naturally a winger but can play attacking mid too.The swansea bit is very good but we wont get bates he out for months with a knee injury so we'll go for collins and a defender from abroad..No offence to Swansea but Sigurdsson is way too good for you now. I think he'll end up at Arsenal or Spurs. I even think he could be a great long term replacement for Paul ScholesNo offence but sigursson knows what he is doing he wants to play week in week out and play some stylish football why would you go to man utd when they are playing vetrens like giggs and scholes plus hes made some importend aquatences since his time in swansea and want to stay wiv his new mrs ....inside sourceAnd get his salary at Hoffenheim/Swansea tripled by going to a top club and then getting first team football once big guns retire. He'll be playing in the champions league one day, something Swansea will never be inNo offence to the united fan but Sigurdsson is a completely different player to scholes, sigurdsson is an attacking mid where sholes is an ourstanding passer of the ball. So Sigurdsson not an ideal "replacement". I hope he goes to Swans but he is good enough as a squad player in a top 6 team. Swans fan.

Grant Holt being linked with a proposed move to Everton - hence the transfer request(19)(11)Holt is done deal to sunderlandNo everton would be most likelyYou are most wecome, one hit wonder, won/t make 10 goals next yearPeople live in deeam world on here, everton are skintHolt is not a done deal to Sunderland. Holt, his agent and our CEO are due to sit down for clear the air talks in an hours time. There has been no offer for Grant as stated by David McNally just yesterday. His agent has said Grant doesnt want to leave the club but there are 1 or 2 issues which need to be resolved, which if not resolved mean he will push for a move. If they are, which i have faith they will be, he will stay. Unless of course a stupid offer comes in £6mil+ then id let him go with my blessing.

But as i say, the club have been very open with the situation this weekend and nothing is even close to being done in terms of a move away from the club.

Robert green discussing new contract at west ham. If he does not sigh paul robinson to be heading to upton park(20)(8)Robinson had nightmare last season would defo not want him in goal .he was to slow ,unsighted to often and conceded weak goals. el absi of wigan would be a better choice if martinez leaves wages would not be a prob and could get him for a gd price

BURNLEY are lining up a double swoop for Leeds midfielder Adam Clayton and Portsmouth right-back Joel Ward.

Pompey are keen to cash in on Ward in order to ease their money problems, with Burnley likely to pay £500,000 for his signature.

But Leeds, Ipswich and Crystal Palace are also interested in Ward.(9)(13)I am a burnley fan and clayton would not leave leeds utd for us,if they have a bigger wage budget than we had in prem so if they won't pay him what he wants then we deffinately won't.Pompey need more than 500k to ease there money troublesI'm amazed that some supporters(saints mainly) are still moaning about Pompey buying the FA cup, didn't we beat Man U on the way surely they have bought most things and no mention of City , Chelsea or even Blackburn sorry petty green eyed excuses. we won it and it was great we are now in the mire wich is not but i wouldn't swap it great times if your going to be there at least compete.Wrong on Clayton and wrong on Ward, both players will have better offers than BurnleyIf pompey bought fa cup man city bought premier league saints supporters dont rave about them buying the premTrue dat.

West Ham Transfers


Reo Coker
James Collins
Matt Jarvis


Pape Diop(14)(18)Cole possible on loan, Yakubu unfortunately looks to join reading, Reo-Coker looks very likely, Jarvis is joining west bromWe will be a 15 th place team give or so 1 or 2 places if they all signThe last team in the premier league that Jarvis would sign for, would be wba.Didn't Reo-Coker leave West Ham under a bit of a cloud?? said wasnt wanted there etc etc. Think O'Neil will stay and why should Cole sign for Hammers?West Ham need 2 quality full backs. Demel good enough maybe but not fit enough. McCartney no more than a squad player at that level. Try harder next time.There are at least 8 players that need to be moved on we need to solid cb like huth /james collins we need another striker because baldock needs more game time chp loan and we need fast wingers who can provide gd service and support to the front guys we have to be much more solid at the backI think 15th is a bit optimistic - may just scrape it - but I'll be surprised

THFC Spurs squad in danger
of breaking up over the
summer. Bale, Modric and
Walker likey to be subject to
big bids. Adebyeor off leaving
a scant squad who won't fancy
the Europa league fiasco(27)(6)I will love for that to happen :pObvious that Modric and Bale will look to move to a big club. Think Spurs may hang onto Walker.Walker only signed a new deal less than 2 weeks ago. Bale wont go, He has already said he is happy. Only club he would consider is Barca and even then he said he is ont thinking of the move but it is nice to be noticed. Modric possibly but again all Spurs key players are on long deals and Levy is a tough nut to crack.


20 May 2012 16:32:55
Aberdeen signings this summer!

Ins: Jonny Hayes - Inverness - free
Nigel Hasselbaink - St Mirren - free
Farid El Alagui - Falkirk - free

20 May 2012 16:29:47
I told you a few weeks ago about McCleary was joining Reading from Forest.

I also told you that Reading had made a bid for Watford's Adrian Mariappa, and that it was said to be a done deal.

Well now it's breaking on Twitter that a fee has been agreed and he is close to finalising a move to the Royals, beating off interest from Newcastle, Wigan and Southampton.(9)(17)Mariappa of Watford interested Newcastle in January as COVER until the summer as they were short in the defensive areas. He DOES NOT interest Newcastle now so i cant see how Reading have `` beaten off interest from them ``

Stoke city transfers

In - matt Jarvis - 5M
Matt Phillips-3/4 M
Owen-free pay as you play contract
Fletcher - 7 M
Martin Olsen - 4M
Tony pulis will also look at Roger Johnson or Scott Dann
Steven Nzonzi-5M

Outs - Collins

Players to be released

Large exodus of players at stoke , with TP having to reduce his squad size due to the lack of European football and to reduce the current wage bill.(6)(31)Wolves want ten million for Fletcher so dream on with that one.Utter fiction, jarvis £5M and Fletcher £7M who told you the tea lady?God stop with the silly price tags wolves wont sell fletch for what they paid for him n wolves want 20 for both of em but im sure wolves could sell at 7 or 8 no lower 3 year contracts can play hardballReckon 4 of those players coming in will actually happen. Jarvis, Phillips, Owen & OlssenTheres no way fletcher is worth 10mil if stoke got crouch for 10, fletcher is worth around 6-8 and jarvis 5-6Crouch 10mil , fletcher i think has only got 2 be worth 6, very lucky 2 get 7, fullers not worth 6-7 and hes got strengthJarvis and Owen are both looking very likely at Stoke but can't put a finger on a fee for Jarvis and no point bickering about it as no-one knows. Has been talk of Fuller and Higginbotham going to Wolves.Crouch>FletcherFletcher is a better player than crouch. At this point in crouch's career fletcher will score more goals, he can hold the ball up and has a good resale value in relation to age. Crouch will get a few goals, physically to weak so cant hold the ball up and is wrong side of 30 so reducing resale value.What a load of garbage. When Fletcher gets 20 plus international goals then come back.

If ur not posting a rumour, don't bother posting at all. Key word here is RUMOUR!!Other Reading fans can't help what utter trash some of the fellow fans are posting around here.Half of them will all been on a free transferFree transfer for most of 850 players

ed any blackpool rumours {Ed025's Note - only that a lot of teams are interested in ince and phillips..(9)(4)Everton after both of themHollaway will be w.b.a managerYou wish.......! Ince already said he's staying and Phillips should cost any club £2m+. Funny but you "big" clubs could have got these 2 for peanuts just 12months ago but it's Ollie thats turned them into quality players. If they end up at WBA or may as well stick them in your reserves and loan them out in 18months time as you couldnt bring on new players. Everton has'nt got ANY money so that's not going to happen either.....!

Cardiff Ins:

Lewis - free

Shorey - free

Lawrence - £800,000

Swanson - free

Le Fondre - £1 million(14)(13)Le Fondre is Reading's best finisher. He wont be going anywhere.

Shorey's ego wont let him drop to the Champ yet.Le Fondre wont be going any where, but if he did it would be at least three times that!Le Fondre will not be going back to the championship when he is in the Priemer League. And even if he did, hes worth like 3/4 millionLe Fondre will only be leaving, on loan if he messes up big time in the Prem

Swanson will not be joining Cardiff either, Blackburn, Leicester, Middlesboro' or Bristol City are all more likelyReading wont need le fondre when they are in the premier leagueI hope u hurry up and get Lawrence, pompey need the moneyBrighton are reportedly winning the race to sign Danny Swanson.Brighton can dream on about Swanson why would he want to go to a mid table clubWouldn't mind swanson. lawrence not bad lewis decent back up le fondre yes purely cos he scores goalsWhat about the three Norwegians we have been linked with.

20 May 2012 15:44:49
Reading's Mikkel Andersen does not want another season in the shadows so the brilliant Danish keeper wants a season long loan to a Championship club to gain some first team experience.(10)(5)Just signed a new long term contract and is available for loan next season, but to a Championship club only (lowest level) and Brondby are keen as well.I could see us loaning him to say Ipswich or Derby

Bjorn Sigurdsson and Dame N'Doye are highly linked with Berkshire club Reading FC as they search for a prolific striker to lead their charge to a mid table Premier League finish in 2012/13.(11)(11)It's Sigurdason -- not to be confused with Gyfli Sigurdsson.It's actually Sigurdarson but yeah according to Icelandic newspapers it seems we have made a bid for around 1mill but they want 3.5 mill min for him, looks like a good prospect but I feel we won't be making another move until the TSI takeover gets verified by the premier league.


20 May 2012 15:41:05

Both Utd and Barca have expressed interest in the promising young left back and Valencia coach Unai Emery has recently hinted that the player had already been sold. He did not disclose which club Alba had been in talks with but it was assumed that that the Nou Camp would be his destination. Yesterday however, Valencia's technical director announced that Alba had not been been approached by Barcelona but does not seem to want to extend his stay with Valencia. Sir Alex Ferguson is noteably on the lookout for someone to fill Patrice Evra's boots and at a reasonable £15m, Jordi Alba appears to be on his way to Old Trafford to do exactly that.(13)(17)


20 May 2012 15:40:57
Reading look to add a right back and Nathaniel Clyne looks likely to be their man, with Chris Gunter as a secondary option. Clyne has attracted a lot of interest from Premiership clubs so it looks highly unlikely he'll be an Eagles player in 12/13.(10)(14)Clyne is being courted by United and Liverpool. We wont get him!

Gunter we have bid £2m and it's been rejected.Would like to see clyne in premier league, he looks quality!Clyne will be going to a bigger club, think Newcastle are after him aswell and UnitedClyne is more likely to be a Fulham player next year, but yeah as shown on this site reading probably will need a whole new team next year


20 May 2012 15:39:00
Brian McDermott wants to add an attacking midfielder to his Premier League squad and Joe Cole on a season long loan looks likely to happen as Hoffenheim look to keep Gylfi Sigurdsson after his successful loan spell at Swansea City.(5)(14)Reading have spoken to Liverpool, BUT he will go to a bigger club.Matt phillips to swansea 4mGyflis swansea bound mate

Leeds boss Neil Warnock looks set to bring in 2 striker in the next month. Surprisingly Jon Stead is top of Warnocks list with Leeds looking to offer £1m for his services. Also on Warnock's radar is QPR striker DJ Campbell. Leeds preparing to make a loan move for the out of favour striker.(10)(22)I heard that if qpr sack barton warnock said he will take him at leeds with paddy kenny,also joel ward,and dj if that happens...if....leeds will be in with a gret chance of getting promotion..Are u serious joey barton to leeds. even though wanrock and barton left on bad terms with barton saying that warnock was a useless manager. i dont think so.

Burnley to sign Chris Taylor or Marc Pugh to replace Ross Wallace who is going to either Ipswich or Celtic(9)(3)Taylor will join Leeds or Burnley

I am a friend of his family and they said that both clubs had made contact with himRoss wallace is not coming to celtic! why do people keep saying that, he has been before and he couldnt get in our first team so why would we re-sign himRoss wallace to leeds or brighton


20 May 2012 14:54:25
We have heard rumours that Mariappa might be going to Newcastle but if he didn't go he said that he would of been happy at Watford. But this is Very Unlikely if Clubs in the Premier League want his signature.(8)(3)Newcastle haven't bid for him.

Reading have had a bid accepted.

See Twitter. Also see @Fridays_Legacy on Twitter, as he broke this weeks ago and has been spot on with the leaks about TSI as well. Also see @maffff. He also talked about Mariappa to Reading weeks ago!Whether it's on Twitter or not, there's been nothing official and until this is announced it's just a rumour


20 May 2012 15:10:28
Dicannio will sign 3 year deal for West Ham this week,so much for loyalty.
Still he did warn the Swindon board 2 weeks ago funding was needed.Number of names in the hat for the job are Marin Ling/Chris Wilder/Steve Evans plus a host of no hopers.
So sad for Swindon Fans yet it was on the cards(9)(27)There is no way Evans would be welcome at Swindon,the players and fans hate himI think you only got this rumour half right. After his shambolic first season with us resulting in getting promotion at the first time of asking, but only through the playoffs instead of automatic, Allardyce will indeed be sacked. Di Canio will be given a 25 year contract and a transfer kitty of 500 million. And Barack Obama will be the new director of football at West Ham since he has been a fan for 40 years and spent his childhood in the Chicken Run at Upton Park cheering on the mighty Hammers.
What a painstakingly stupid rumour.
If anything, Allardyce will be given a contract extension, but Di Canio won't be taking his job anytime soon...Ridiculous rumour,WHUFC will not get rid of Big Sam after getting the Hammers promotedRubbish why would Steve Evans leave Rotherham when he's building a strong team thereHe may go as a strikers coach heard that rumour some time agoI ain't a Swindon fan but I think you are saying this to unsettle Swindon because you are jealous of what a wonderful job he has done! Anyway, why would they sack big as, after he just got promotion, don't stir!

Afc Wimbledon fanWe dont need him


20 May 2012 15:07:44
Derby County have contacted Craig Beattie's agent. Its believed that the Rams have failed with bids to sign Jon Daly and Simon Cox and now they look to the Hearts forward. Should be able to get him on a free transfer. Derby are also looking at Joe Mattock after Bristol City have won the race for Paul Dixon.(8)(4)He is out of contractHow you know thisGreat, Another Unprolific Striker To Add To The Collection, We Have Davies And Robinson Who Can Score So No Striker Is Really Needed.City linked with hilberhain defender sean o`hanlonBristol city are looking to sign aston villa vetran andy marshall keeper who is free agentOh yes good striker swap going on Davies for Beatie

George Porter set to move from Leyton Orient to Charlton. To be announced in the next few days. Tribunal supposed to be up to £150,000(4)(7)As an Orient fan, I hope this is true. Porter isn't as good as has been reported.I went school with him and guess what...he aint moving... he had a trial with charlton before signing for leyton orient and didnt get inI'm a Charlton fan and he has just signed a new contract at Orient so I can see it being higher than that price tag!He hasn't signed a new orient deal yetKeep Me Posted On The Porter Situation. I Would Hate To See Him Leave. Speak To Him After The Home Games, One Of My Favourites At The Orient.Top man probably only an impact sub at the moment, but is young...pace to burn.

Romelu Lukaku is either joining West Ham, QPR or Fulham next season on loan. Chelsea want him to move to a club still down south.(20)(15)So Tottenham, Reading, Saints aren't down South any more??

Also, not wanting to call you a blatant liar or anything... BUT Chelsea wouldn't care whether it was North, South, East or West... why would they??

Bore off!Lakaku is going to werder bremen fc on loan as part of marko marin deal.....We don't want to improve chelsea's youngsters when we have our own coming through if we take him its permanent or nothing FTIDQpr look to give up on him....LOL he's more likely to give up on QPRBecause Chelsea are going to so business with their rivals for an £18million player? Qpr never.


20 May 2012 14:38:38
Michael Owen has been booked for a heart check in Reading adding to the fact that reading has one of the best places to keep horses in the country and he wants to stay in the premier league it's all adding up that he could be signing for us. You heard it here first!(14)(13)Pretty certain that he's off to stoke!Berkshire - not Reading.

And no, he isn't coming here. We had a chance to get him in Jan and we said no and went for Roberts.

Stoke's chairman has just gone public saying they want him, and that's a lot closer to him don't ya think? (clearly not)He's too concerned about his horses and houses to care enough about playing for Reading. Great player but plays for himself and not the team - not what Reading needs.Heart check? The way he left Liverpool and Newcastle for Manchester U proves Thai he got no heart!So he's going to move his horses and stables from Cheshire down South to join Reading or opt to join Stoke............mmmmmmmmm tricky one. His Dad used to attend Stoke games and Owen filmed a TV show there. He lives 30 odd miles away.


20 May 2012 14:38:31
Stevenage trio Bostwick, Freeman and Wilson to Peterborough for £1.9m(13)(13)Chairman would want more than that for 3 players.Cant see us spending another 1.9 million on players, hope its true thoughHope this is true....probably will get a rid of a few of our listed players in part of the dealIts 1.9mil for just Bostwick & Freeman not Wilson. Bostwick is extreamly keen on a move to the posh as it means he and his family could remain in livining in the stevenage area.Bostwick was awful in play offs, no thank u


20 May 2012 14:37:16

20 May 2012 14:34:34
Baldock is 100% leaving West Ham on a loan deal to a Championship club after West Ham's recent promotion. The most likely destination for him seems to be either Charlton, Watford or Ipswich. Barnsley are also looking at him but that deal seems highly unlikely.(16)(3)I know this too it is charlton 100% but it's whether it's a loan or perminantI know this as well its 150% Ipswich on loanToo bad - it is 1000% WatfordAnd I know it's Watford 200%TWTD says that Allardyce has agreed with his 'close friend' Jewell that if they got promoted (which they clearly did), Ipswich would be the first in line to get Baldock on loan. Who knows whether this is true or not but I suppose time will tell.If he's going out on loan it will be up to the player where he goes.


20 May 2012 14:28:16
Plymouth Argyle are taking advantage of the Romain Laurrieu - David Frio connection and are showing an interest in French Ligue 2 side Chateauroux pair:

21 year old Striker Maxime Bourgeou and 24 year old midfielder Claudio Beauvue.(10)(2)Bourgeou is a talent and would be a great signing for any league 1 or championship side. He was a youth player at st.ettiene for 6 years. Fast, strong and good in the air. Mpenza type player.


20 May 2012 14:26:28
Ipswich will sign Watford winger Sean Murray for £2m this week.(2)(17)Murray is as good, maybe even better than Young was at his age. We keep hold of him this season and then if people want to pay eight figures we'll listen.This is funny!! you cant be serious! you must be dreamingNeed more than 2 milMurray will be going to prem and has already turned down Liverpool and Man city as a scholar. He would also probably cost a closer to 3 million at leastThis is the worst one ever - no change out of £20m my little tractor friend - he is worth more than your ground and squad added together - £2m -pmslUnlikely to move sideways when he could play in the premIf he said no to man city I doubt it he will go to IpswichOn what planet are you living!Ipswich wish they could have him, unfortunate for them they dont have a youth academy good enough to produce their own murrayNever in your life...he wants a career !RubbishDream onHe signed a new contract not long ago and dyche said he was worth 25mill so your a bit offGet off your high horse. He might be good but at his age you can't start going around demanding '8 figures' for him, and stop slagging off other people's clubs. This is a rumours site not a naming calling game at the playground.^ Alright. We'll take Cresswell for 100k and JET for a donut.

Murray is worth 8 figures and he's our player under contract, of course we can demand what we want.You say get off your high horse but wasn't it only last season when you sold wickham for 8 million and he had only scored about 10 goals. murray managed 7 goals since february and plays RM! he was absolute class, one of the best midfielders in the league, and still only 18 so 2 million is nonsense at this point in time although i would also agree 10 million is a gamble, but thats football these days and im in no doubt that whether it be with watford or not, he will be playing premier league football in the next few seasons.Ipswich fans are deluded. Making up BS rumours continously.I dont doubt the players ability, especially at his age he sounds like one for the future. However, we (Ipswich) did not demand '8 figures' for him as a previous poster (crystal palace fan) said they would want for Murray. We simply could not refuse the 8 million offered to us. It would be barmy if we did. And to be honest, I think that if you received a similar offer for Murray, you would do the same thing.No way murray will go to ipswichhim being Wickham

Holt to stay at Norwich(17)(18)Computer says noFound that out time agoComputer also said Ronaldo won't leave Manchester UnitedQPR and Everton want Holt and he wants away.
Think Norwich might struggle next seasonHolt does not want away, he just wants to up his wages despite having two years left on his current deal, personally I think Holt will struggle to have same impact on premier league next season, so if the right offer came in for him I would seriously consider selling himPosh spice to become Prime Minister seems as likely as Holt staying at Naaaaaarwich.Like he'd go to qpr they're a nothing club they'll go down next year ! hes loved at norwich

Man City Players Out:

Adam Johnson - £7 million - Sunderland
Slavic - £2.5 million - Back to Serbia
Tevez - £20 million - Milan

Second person, fair player is not for next year.
Third person the names are spelt right.

Holt staying at NCFC. PL will make him clubs highest earner and make good signings to take the club forward. ie Pacheco, Lansbury, Rhodes and Curtis Davies.(6)(22)He would be wasting his time if he stays, Norwich lack ambitionYour going down next year fools so how you think your going forward dream on your skint with no ambition this is why most of your team wants outWhen lambert was asked would he be staying at Norwich he said "Ummmm don't know" that was on Sky sportsYeah I saw that, club look as though they might self-destruct after superb first season, egos will kick inSome of the reply's border on stupidity, Norwich skint - of course they are after all income from premier league prize/TV money alone was over £45M.
No ambition - that's why we have Lambert as Manager, and we have had three very successful seasons, Holt does not want to leave , he just wants to try and up his wages.Paul Lambert doesn't talk to the media like Harry Redknapp does! he hasn't given anything away or been the most charasmatic interviewee all season. So I wouldn't look too much into that. Also weren't we meant to be going down this year?? and also struggling in the championship last year?? continue under estimating norwich as always, not saying we are going to go higher, but still not relegation next season {Ed025's Note - i agree

A clayton will sign for norwich next week, j ward will replace him after turning down ipswich, he has belived to have said if i have to play in stadium that does not belong to football club it has to be good one bulit for premier L not on an old rubbish tip witch is portman road. More to point ward wants to play with a team on the up witch leeds is . A true sleeping giant, not an also. Ran like ipswich town(8)(17)Bloody cheeky budgie, Portman Road entrance turnstiles have jut been painted, better than carrott road, pewky green & yellow pahThats why he is signing for wednesdayMany seem to be upset about the success of Norwich over the last two seasons. 1) Norwich did not win the lottery, but we did gain over 40M for finishing where we did + Tv bonus.

20 May 2012 13:15:51
Southend's Ryan Hall is set to sign for Shrewsbury Town for a fee of 55k.(9)(9)Too good for league two now, been our best player last two yearsMore like 550,000 KHall is worth at least at a minimum 750k with the amount of money being spent on League Two and Conference players these days!750k? next joke...Well if Tubbs is worth 800k, Barnett 1.7 million and Vardy 1.7 million then Hall is worth at a minimum 750k!Well Barnett was 1.1million and Jamie Vardy was 1 million so your already talking nonsense. Ryan Hall is in the last year of his contract at Southend and there is no chance that anyone would bid more than 200K - fact.With the add-ons on the deals for Barnett and Vardy the deals can reach 1.7 million so get your facts right and if you believe Hall would go for only 200k then you are living in a dreamland!I think you are deluded. They are all Strikers. they go for double a winger. And lets face it they where ridiculous fees. Grant Holt left Shrewsbury for half a million. Hall isnt half the worth of HoltThat is the amount of money League Two players are going for now not 5 years ago and Hall has scored 14 goals and got the highest amount of assists in professional football in England so I would say he is worth at least the amount of Tubbs.Joe hart had the most clean sheets in england and he was 600k so i very much doubt that hall will be half as much as thatWait and see, Hall will leave on a free next year!Holt isn't even that good he just has great service from pilkington and bennett!Hart was a youngster when he left Shrewsbury he had POTENTIAL. Hall is consistently performing to a high standard NOW so is worth more than the ridiculously small amounts all you Shrewsbury fans keep coming up with!Hall had a good run during the season but failed miserably to continue the run and get Southend promoted, quite simply he was poor. 200k no more.Hall has been good all season no less then 750k will take him away. Club's top goalscorer and has the countries most assists.200k? you are completely clueless and deluded, he has 20 assists and 14 goals, he is our top scorer from midfield, he is worth at least 750kHart was epic and young. Holt scored near 30 goals in a crap Shrewsbury side. Hes a winger.... 200k is steepClueless and deluded? Did he get you promotion? No he did not. He had a good run mid way through the season then tailed off at the end. He is a good player, but nowhere near the money you think. 200k no more.You really don't have a clue what your talking about do you?Are you serious? I have watched in excess of 50% of Southend's games this season. Hall is a half decent winger, he is not worth anything more than 200k max.No club would pay more than 200k for Hall. Only Southend fans think he is worth more. Good League 2 wingers do not go for 1 million etc can't believe how dull Southend fans are.And i've watched all home games and 18 away games, how many southend games have you attended to judge our players, holt and hart were unproven talents and the fees you mention don't include appearence add onsWait how is it halls fault we didn't go up, it was the managers fault for playing hoofball to benyon and eastwood who are half the size of centre backsHolt scored 30 goals and we payed 170k for him. Hall has had one good year.
Hart had one add on which was an England apperance one. I think that tells his quality. Hall is a WINGER. he wont go near what you wantAre you even a football fan? Do you even know what it is? The things that you are saying is making me doubt this!Hall has played left back, right mid, left mid, and striker, while he has been at the club we have never played with a winger

Bristol City Ins:

Paul Dixon - Dundee united - free

Micheal Jacobs - Northampton -£850k

Francisco Sandaza - St Johnstone -Free

Andre Amougou - Burnley - had a succesful loan spell

Murray Davidson - St johnstone - Not sure if this will happen

Suso Santana- Hearts

Mustapha Carayol - rovers want 1mil but i dont think city will pay it

marlon pack - cheltenham - waiting for playoffs to finish they may agree a fee

Mcincess being linked with all of these..,

Ins(if Promoted):
Hill-Blackpool( after a successful loan spell)
Higgingbottom- Huddersfield
John Carew-west ham

BeatieWhere is all this money coming fromNO-ONE has a source that delivers a shopping list of players!

YawnAnd HOW can Jacobs cost £850k when he's out of contract and the compo expected to be around £250k?

No wonder BCFC are in financial trouble.Northampton are reportedly attempting to sign West Ham striker Sam Baldock for a fee worth to be around 1.25 million, also Emile Heskey and Micheal Owen will sign 3 year contracts after the new massive investment by the chairmen.Bristol City fans are becoming as deluded as Leicester/Charlton/Southampton. Jacobs and Dixon are both going to Derby, a big club, in a big stadium, on the up. Why would they go to Bristol City, who will continuously struggle on low gates and low income?Suso Santana has already declared he wants to go back to Spain where his family is based !Sandaza is ste, not even league one standard when he was at Brighton.Jacobs due to sign for Derby. Im a Northampton fan and thats what ive been toldPlease explain what finacial dificulties Bristol City are in?Bristol city have just sold nicky maynard for 1.7 million , steve lansdown is putting alot more money into the club over the summer and we have a new chairman , i think they are going to back there manager all they canIf u look on bbc u person it says northampton want a compensation of 800-900k !Muzzy wont go to cant afford himWhere do you get this Bristol City in financial trouble , yes we have debt , not many clubs dont ..the biggest difference is we have one of the richest ENGLISH owners in the business, take a look Steve Lansdown personal wealth in excess of 750Million and growingSandaza has several championship clubs to choose from. Bristol City cant afford the wages he looking for.I clearly love everyone saying financial trouble we are buy a new stadium lansdown just brought bristol rugby and dont think he would ever see the football club go under because he wants TWO sports club in the top leagues in his power.

What has Reading got to do with Hull City?(3)(4)There're in the same countryNo idea.

One club is in a scenic part of the country, with vibrant and growing employment, and has recently been voted the fasted growing micro City in Europe, and the other is Hull...This won't happen, McCleary has stopped all interest we had in Phillips. An attacking midfielder, a right back and a couple of forwards are all we need.I have no idea, except that very little reading goes on in hull


20 May 2012 12:44:26
Got word from a very reliable source about the situation at Leeds.

Apparantley Joel Ward will be signing, but Leeds are doing all they can to delay him joining in order to save on wages over the summer. The are apparantley confident he will sign but Ken Bated genuinely resents paying the players over the summer months.

Greg Halford will also sign, and these deals are set to be finalised this week.(12)(12)Ward signing for Owls done dealHalford is not the kind of player leeds need very poor


20 May 2012 12:43:00
Pogba to stay at united. Story from the England camp.

CTID(17)(16)Yeah? Already signed a pre-agreement with Juventus.The clues in the wording. Pre contract agreements only tie the player to that club should there be a move. It does not mean he can't stay put.

There are rumours circulating that john carew has been given a tour of the valley and that charlton have offered west ham a 2.5 million pound deal for him with him being paid £20,000 a week(7)(28)No chance! owners would never pay out £20k a week for an over the hill strikerCharlton will not pay 20K a weekIsn't he out of contract?Carew aint worth £20 let alone £20k, well over the hill nowHe's out of contract. Fact.Oh do me a favour, Charlton dont want cant afford old has beens like Carew.Carew was great 4/5 years ago - been downhill ever since. Not worth 2.5 k now never mind 2.5 m

A rival offer is on the table from a foreign clubHasn't got the expierence to manage LiverpoolMartinez won't join a sinking ship like Liverpool, he will continue his project to establish Wigan as a top 10 premier league side.It's a poison chalice for him - Liverpool fans will hound him out.

With Blackpool not going up, Reading look certain to fight off other Premier League clubs such as Stoke and Sunderland to Matt Phillips' signature.(19)(10)Liverpool are also interested!We have plenty of wingers, doubt another will be on brians listHe wont go to Reading, he will end up at a bigger club.Because Reading is such a BIG club now they got promoted. Nothings changed. Stoke and Sunderland are much better propositions than Reading isWe're not in for him! HTH's.It's not all about whose the biggest club it's about whether he'd get a chance at a bigger club. Players may join a smaller club just because they know they'll get game time where as at a big club they will just bench warm.Blackpool wont sell him at all stop putting up rumors saying otherwise and if we/ they did along with ince i can see holloway walking out and i wouldn't blame him with the reported clubs after himHe would easily get into stoke's teamKebe, McAnuff, Robson-Kanu, McCleary, Antonio (if he doesn't end up at wednesday) think we're fine for wingers atm doubt we'll be looking for another, may be wrong of course as our game relies heavily on them but we wont be attracting him to us if he's going to have to compete with Kebe and McAnuff for first place slots, Prob going to Stoke or Sunderland as he is easily better than any winger they have atm.Better than James McClean? You wanna put that glue bag down sunshine, Adam Johnson is on SAFC radar, We also have seb Larrson, Best dead ball man in the prem, Swap him for Elmo tho.Do you genuinely think that list of championship players is better than the likes of mclean and larsson?!None of those wingers are better than McLean pennant etherington or Larson


20 May 2012 12:14:43
Alexandre Mendy looks likely to join Watford in the summer after his release from Chesterfield.

OTBCHa ha dream on little club, losing your star muppet that thinks he is pele for getting a couple of headersHave little Norwich suddenly won the lottery then?Zaha, over rated
Holden and Davies, no thanks. The others would definitely be welcome next year!He is too good for Norwich!15 prem goals not 2 headers, get your facts right. We are that little we are 12th best surported club in england. Thats how little we are. We might couple above list. As they will all cost abitNonsenseLeeds are the fith most supported club in England so 12th is quite rubbish in comparison

JordLUFCPilkington is the only good player at Norwich! The others just get luckyComment for JordLUFC

we might only be 12th supported club, but at least our chairman gives his Manager complete financial backing, and our Manager says very little instead preferring to do his talking with the teams performances.
Leeds on the other hand, Chairman who is tight and a Manager who never has anything good to say about any other team or players especially when he does not win, get use to hearing him winge, because Leeds will really struggle next season with Warnock in charge.............Were are leeds again? oh bottom half of champioship and were the little club haha, leeds need to face that there not as big as they use to be and are only going to get worse with Warnock and Bates in charge

Charlton are after Sone Aluko, whos contract is about to expire.(9)(2)Gers are unlikely to let him go with a transfer embargo in place are they?Yes please!!Im a charlton fan and this is ridiculous.They're hardly in a position to turn down offers for any of their players though - or hadn't you heard that they're in administration? {Ed007's Note - Aluko is out of contract, there is an option for a renewal but due to Rangers current financial problems it will be difficult for them to meet the terms of it.}The administrators have a duty to pay back monies owed by the club. Achieving that goal may mean selling assets but, I doubt it will mean letting assets go for nothing. There are parties interested in buying the club and the job of selling it will be a lot easier if they have a reasonable chance of competing in next season's league title race.

With a transfer embargo in place they are unlikely to let an asset like this go for nothing, when they cannot replace him.

Adrian Mariappa Newcastle 5million
Chris Iwelumo Bournmouth 300k
John Eustace Takes up coaching role at club
Scott Loach 1million Ipswich(6)(19)If marriapa leaves we will spend more than thatEustace take up a coaching role! in 3 years maybe. youre clearly no watford fan as you would know we wouldnt get gordan and that eustace is playing the best football he's played at the momentYou have no chance of getting gordonAs much as I would love to see Loach at Ipswich, I can't see us signing him anytime soon. And I know that Mariappa is supposed to be good but seriously, 5 million? I highly doubt Newcastle would pay that when they bought cabaye for around 4 million.HA! Just shows how easy it is to make up figures. Iwelumo 300k :LMariappa, if he goes, will go for no more than 4 million but more likely around 3300k for 33 year old player in the last year of their contract? ok thenHodson to Ipswich for 250K-no way. Mariappa will go for closer to 3 million but not to Newcastle. Iwelumo move is a possible. Eustace was our most consistent player and probably most effective outside Deeney towards the end of the season. Loach is a possible I guess though.

Reading are set to sign highly rated Wycombe Wanderers striker Stuart Beavon this week for a fee believed to be £950,000 rising to £1,250,000 with a 15% sell-on included.

Beavon is the son of former Royal and name sake, Stuart Beavon.(5)(18)Why would a Premiership side buy a 28-year old for £1.25m who's spent most of his career in non-league?We need a striker with Premiership experience and quality. Can't see this happening personally.Beavon is joining huddersfield when rhodes leaves - 600kSo we're signing a player who's barely scored 1 in 4 games for wycombe and couldn't even keep them in league 1Got the wrong end of a complicated rumour.

Rhodes > Reading

He did play really well for us at times and deserves a regular place in the Premier League.TEO TEO TEO class player will be class at a team that gives him a chance and don't mind attacking players, can't believe released him, it TEO timeI always liked tchoyi at the Albion just to unpredictable. Don't think even he knew where he was going at times but he did produce some quality momentsGood player but not consistent exactly like arsenal's theo walcott

Michael Owen has hinted he may join Southampton this summer after being told he's been released by Man United
Source-(15)(9)No chanceWould be a good move for him
a fit Owen would be fantastic up top with Lambert but I cannot see Owen moving to far away from his race horsesSaints might go for owen if they cant get hooper, on twitter le tiss tweeted moving down south? owen replied hes open to offersHe wont join because Nigel Adkins has a habit of buying younger players also by the looks of it hooper might join southamptonTheres every chance he could join Saints as he said hes open to it, but wether they go in for him is another matter.No hes not at all hes said on twitter he wants stay local to cheshire lol dont believe anything this mugg writes on hereHow has he hinted anything when he hasn't been interviewed about his release in recent weeks?

Saints need to get their feet back on the old terracotta.For the 2 posts above, you have no clue im afraid....Le Tissier said to him about moving down south to Saints and Owen replied he was open to it...100% on his twitter account you can see for yourself..This has also been picked up by other sources of media too. It wont happen, but it was said. Check your facts before making yourselves look like fools.He will join stoke with kenwyn jones being sold for around 6milWhy would anyone want to sign him!? I am a Southampton fan and I wouldn´t want him anywhere near our club.
He is 32, only made 4 apps for man u last season, will more than likely get injured and be out for the most of next season and on top of that he will want and expect big wages.
...We can do much better.

- Steven Pienaar (priority) 4mill+
- Steven Naismith 2 mill
- Michael Owen Free
- Manuel Fernandes Free
- The Annual 'surprise' loan

Looking to offload
- James McFadden (Released)
- Marcus Hannemhan (Released)
- Stracqualursi & Drenthe will both go back to their respective clubs
- Anichebe may make way for 3mill
- Yobo - Fenerbache - 3-5 mill
- Disitin - end of contract

Someones being ripped offCoz he was bad?Why would we sell peanut to you for 4 when Sunderland offer 5^ Did you see the pls sign or is 5 your favourite number you know? 5 for pienaar and on channel 5 next seasonIf Pienaar want's to play for Everton next season then he will no matter how much money anyone else offers.

Reading waiting to offer Matt Phillips his Premier league chance afer Blackpool failed to win promotion.(16)(9)He wont be going to Reading, will be at a bigger clubWas a lot of Paper talk about this deal a few weeks ago - just wonder if we'll still be interested now we've signed McCleary - we have already have 4 wingers now.Bigger club, like blackpool?That's why I was hoping that West Ham won yesterday, credit where credits due they deserve it.When he said he will be going to a bigger club he meant a bigger club in the Premier League.West ham didn't deserve it at all I hate clubs who just throw good money after bad at this type of situation anyway blackpool had more shots on target and both of west hams goals were debateable at bestI mean over the course of the season. The final was a very tightly run affair. With West Ham dominating the first half of the game and Blackpool coming on strong in the latter part of the game.

West Ham are to make a move for £2m rated Millwall defender Jack Smith.(4)(22)£2m for Millwall FB Jack Smith. My missus will drive him to Trumpton Park to sign.2mill for jack smith.. Mmmmm....Good one!! As a Millwall fanatic I loathe West Ham with a passion, but not even I am so evil that I would like the worst defender in the World to play for them! If ANYONE want Smith, they should have him, for FREE!2 mill
jack smith aint worth 2 quidJack smith terribleThink West Ham will need to cough up more than £2m.Jack Smith is not terrible, he's a very capable Championship defender who is good on the ball, has good distribution and is very calm and collected. He is also not worth £2M by a million miles. Few hundred k at most.How can you say he is terrible....clearly never seen him playI went to watch jack smith in a trial match against Dartford a few years back before he signed. one of the worst players i had ever seen didnt know why we signed him. since then in the coming seasons he has come on as a really good player and had 2 brilliant games against west ham so it wouldnt suprise me if they were interested in him at all.

2 million would be a fair price but to a differant team (not a rival) i see it lowerHmmm, upon reflection, Jack Smith is NOT terrible, he is exquisite, and he has got great hair too!As i said jack smith terribleHe wouldnt go to west ham

Luke Chadwick & Stephen Gleeson will leave MK Dons for local rivals Peterborough with Grant McCann & Nicky Ajose coming to MK Dons(14)(10)Grant mccann will not go to mk dons and luke chadwick will not leave mk dons for peterbourgh . stephen glesson is offered a new contractGrant McCann is being sighted by cardiffChadwick is injured and has gone under a knee op. Cant see him moving whilst in contract either.Chadwick has just had a knee operation, he is about 30 years old and he has 2 years left on his contract. So no he's defo not. But sadly its becoming more of a reality for Gleeson. I despise Peterborough"You despise Peterborough", in other words you are jealous. Come and join the love machine with Fergie at the wheel, there's plenty to go aroundPosh will never take gleeson he is rubbishExcept Posh bid for him last summer...
Gleeson hasn't yet made up his mind about whether to sign a new contract or not, but I can guarantee he won't be going to PeterBogHorror in his career.
As for Chadwick - he's not going anywhere and that is common knowledge.
Grant McCann is tosh compared to the quality of midfield currently at MK Dons. I fully expect him to rock up at a struggling League One side or promoted side from League Two (might fit in at Shrewsbury).
Ajose I don't know about so I'm not going to pretend I do know^ this guy knows his football.... Like all other mk dons fans, listen to them and learn!

Bristol City are coming close to a few signings

City are looking increasingly likely to pip Derby County to the signing of midfielder Michael Jacobs from Northampton

City has also agreed a fee with Cheltenham Town for Marlon Pack, the league 2 outfit are currently competing in the play-offs so Bristol City are being made to wait

Scott Laird has already come down for talks and is very close to signing

Paul Dixon is a near enough a done deal, Just dotting the i's and crossing the t's

There has been talks betwwn the two Bristol clubs for Mustapha Carayol, It is believed that Rovers wouldn't drop below £1mil

Jack Butland has been subject to a few major money offers from Bristol City with the most recent one in the region of £2mil Birmingham are not interested in selling

Adnan Januzaj looks set to be first summer signing :-)(6)(12)You are deluded.. Prem teams want Carayol for more then 1 mil as well. To even mention Butland is a joke. Jacobs is very close to joining derby.Just don't understand why he would go to a team on the down rather than a team who are known to bring through young players and the club has got loads of Premiership potential.LOL at Bristol City offered £2m. YOU WISH!

You are still very close to administration. Get your feet back on the ground!Where you get getting your facts from? Bristol City are no where near administration.Bristol City are not very close to administration, get your fact correct before posting,Close to administration? what planet are you on?Sadly the gasheads on here are so funny and they are the ones who are near administration not the reds, Carayol has never been mentioned by prem teams fans so he isnt heading that way.Administration? I wonder if Steve Landsown knows about it as he is paying £92M for the new stadium and all debt is owed to him.
As said before, he has stated 'he is in for the long term' and his son is Vice Chairman. Admin? Don't think so but good effort gas head!Comment to the comment previous... How are Bristol City nearing administration when they sold Nicky Maynard for nearly 2 Million and they are having a brand new stadium i heard to be worth 90 Million? They may have 11 Million debt but David James was on £15k a week and Maynard was on a high wage too. Players have also not been given contracts because Bristol City have got some money to spend, including the owner digging into his pocket who is worth i believe to be near £200 million? - From a Birmingham City fan.Lansdown is worth between 750-900 million according to rich list magazines... jealous gasheads perhaps who cant take the fact that we have a rich owner who is alos a bristol city fan! keep dreaming that you'll rise above us again 12 years and countingSpot on but the £200M is actually £900M. Financial fair play rules mean that massive wages in the Championship (apart from the or bust clubs) have gone. BCFC are fine financially and will move on once the new stadium gets past the daft rule holding it up. A club to watch IMO.Why do people think everyone is going to bristol? they are relegation fodder!

Neil Warnock has blasted some of Leeds United's transfer listed players in a meeting on Thursday. Apparantley he has been told by Ken Bates that there are to be no more signings until players players leave.

I understand that in response to this, Warnock met with Paul Connolly, Ramon Nunez and Adam Clayton, where he told them to up the ante in terms if finding a new club.(8)(8)This is rubbish, since warnock has arrived Parker, o'dea, webber, Delph, smith, Townsend, Vayrynen, Forrsell, Bruce, Taylor, Sam (10 players) have been left the club which frees up alot of space for Clayton Obrien Nunez rachubka connolLy and paynter to find new club, (6 players listed) if that was true then it's 6 out 6 in which hmm still leaves us well short as a squad, your talking rhubarb my friend

He is going to be a top top player, and the fee rises to £4m, but is £2m initially.Considering his potential 4million is not alot

All are keen to stay on at Hearts but Hearts owner 'Mad Vlad' is looking to cut wages. Skacel is set to join Middlesbrough, Black is set to join Cardiff and Beattie is set to join Millwall.(5)(8)As a Hearts fan I understand the need for financial prudence but to let three very influential players go when we have the Europa Cup ahead does not seem wise !Thought Skacel wouldnt move again. Didnt exactly go swimmingly last time.Malky doesn't buy players with attitude problems.Beattie will only come to Millwall if Henderson leaves.Where did this one come from?No more players from across boarder not good enoughGood chance Gary O'Connor will be joining Millwall from Hibernian also Jackett will move for Edu and Whittaker from Rangers. Just heard Bialkowski is in line for a move to the den too. Michael Owen is the boy we want so get yer cheque book out wall! Canning Town old guard.You forgot Drogba... he's been keeping his move to wall quietI support Boro and Hearts, so I'd love to see Skacel move to Boro. He's available on a free, and scores goals from midfield. Absolute class, even at 32.

Doncaster are to sign Damien Reeves (Altrincham), Ramon Nunez (free agent), Brian Howard (free agent), Stuart Beavon (Wycombe), Fabien Robert (loan) and Paul Huntington (Yeovil) £250,000!(9)(8)Huntington out of contract and not worth that but w will happily take it :)
DevonGreenFor the fiftieth and last time. Ramon. Nunez. Is. Not. A. Free. Agent. Now stump up or shut up.Nunez is not a free agent {Ed013's Note - He isn't, but due to his big contract at Leeds they may be forced to let him leave for free}Huntington is never signing for doncaster, they will be relegated this year and will be back to the conference before too long.We've got more chance of winning the champions league than getting relegated to the conference and a true fact is that was the first time Doncaster got relegated in 12seasons so shut it!Rovers fan here, this could happen but thing is his workrate is dreadful


19 May 2012 23:38:30
Reading can afford the bigger wages now. As a result of promotion Jason Roberts will be on £35,000 a week as of the new football year on July 1st.

Also Adam Le Fondre is going no where.
Takeover will be done 'imminently' according to the PL.

They will also sign Marriappa.(5)(27)You know nothing about reading, just because we have more money (or will have soon) doesn't mean we will be paying stupid wages, that's not how we do things.Rubbish apart from le fondre thingReading aren't signing MarriapaAs a Reading fan I'd take CMS, he's not had the best season but he's quick and can finish, would be a great signing along side Jason Roberts. He works his socks off every game!As a Norwich fan I am so pleased we did not complete the transfer of CMS, I stated months ago when Norwich were rumoured to be going back for him that he has a very poor first touch and he may be able to finish but you have to control the ball first, it was no surprise to me that he did not do well in championship, and I suspect if you sign him for premier league football he will barely get a game, because despite his 110% energy he just does not appear to have the technical ability to compete at the highest level.35 k is chicken feed he will more likely be on 50 k at least with the rest of the first teamTBH CMS is essentially a Hunt type of player with a lot more pace, he hasn't really had a strong frontman to hold up the ball for him to do his thing at Brighton, depends how much we'd be paying for him, if its not too much due to this years record worth a punt, if not then leave it not really worth the risk for a faster version of a player we currently have.


19 May 2012 23:32:41
Nathan Redmond to Norwich!(6)(22)Reference this post and the one about Hooper-I think you are a little deluded to think such players would consider joining a club when their manager and star player are looking as if they are about to leave.

Wolves look set to sell 3 strikers this summer.

Sam Vokes, Bournemouth, Tranmere, Crawley £500,000
Leigh Griffiths. Barnsley, Hibernian, St Mirren, £500,000
Steven Fletcher, Sunderland, Stoke £7m(9)(21)I believe Sunderland or Stoke will be the destination of Fletcher however I think Wolves will push them more towards the £12million markFletcher is maybe worth 12 million rupeses at a push. There is no way he is worth £12m. Stoke already have 5 strikers, are looking at bigger names (as are Sunderland) and not likely to break their transfer record on the likes of Fletcher, average at best, £5m - £6m is a more likely figure.Wolves got Griffiths for around £100k and he's never played. Can't see anyone forking out £500K then.Wolves want ten million for Fletcher , the reason is not that he is worth ten million it is just to put clubs off buying him.Griffiths - 500K
Fletcher - 12 Mill (auction just about to start)If fletcher is average why does everyone seem to want to sign him? And why would wolves sell him for a loss?Fletcher 5-6million, whats wrong with you? We bought him for 7million in the first place and look how much he has improved. The board have said he wont leave for under 10million and he is definitely worth at least 11million.Can't see Wolves selling Fletcher for less than they paid. Therefore bids will need to be north of £8m.Tranmere cannot afford vokes Nevermind bfh eitherWould stoke pay 12m for Fletcher when they paid 10m for crouch? doubt itWhere do you think St Mirren or Hibs have 500k? £500 maybe10clubs looking at him 8 in England 1in Russia n 1 in GermanyGriffiths 500,000 not a chance anyone would pay that let alone barnsleyFletcher has scored 12 goals and they say a million a goal for the average striker. Being a wolves fan I think he's worth 12millFletcher scored 12 goals in a team that finished bottom of the league so therefore for a mid table team like stoke or sunderland where more chances are likely to be created he will score plenty more and therefore would be worth the investment by anyone. Also Wolves wont take a loss on him so a bid of at least 8 million will be needed but once an auction starts that figure will most likely rise to around the 10-12 million pound mark

To the Reading fan that said no thanks to Mckail Smith, you obviously have no faith in your manager. The deal will be finalised on Tuesday. Yes we did pay too much for him but he is signing as a squad player who will work his nuts off even if it is coming on for twenty mins! Brighton fans love him even though it wasn't his best season, for his work rate and endless running. Good luck in your one season in the prem. when u finish bottom the last laugh will be on you. Ps to your mate Aaron McLean plays in the championship for Hull! Sleep well!(1)(10)Blimey. this is a rumors site! if you want to moan, start writing a blog or something. Fair play there is always the possibility Reading will go down again next season BUT at least they made it to the PL, Brighton didn't even make the play offs!CMS couldn't hit a barn door if he was sitting on the handle. No thanks. We won't be signing him.GarbageYou paid £2m too much - no one in prem or realistically top half of championship needs him and £1m is top side of his real worth - you got hustled seagulls - welcome tho the big boys league!Mystic megs are out in force, nobody even knows what team we will put out yet let alone where we will finish.

Look up the word envious in the dictionary, you will find your names in the descriptionTbf cms to reading is plausible and brian mcdermott has been after him for around 2 seasons. We wanted him last season but were priced out by others and went back for him in January when TSI came in.See this is just jealousy down to the core. We will stay up and you will look like a fool for letting the green-eyed monster get to you.

Plus im not even against signing CMS, however if you think we will overpay like you did then you are sorely mistaken.To that brighton fan enjoy playing league 1 football again after you finish bottom with 5 pointsAs a Brighton fan I would be stunned If cms went to reading. I wouldnt call him a flop, as he still scored 11, but he is not prem standard. He just got way over hyped last summer. I for one am glad to see reading go up as they are a decent team with a good manager, and don't have the awful bug club syndrome of west sham or brum. I wish you lot the best of luck and hope that when we do play each other next, it'll be in the prem!I saw both the brighton-reading games and can only say he is woeful and not worth the petrol money...Bottom with five points!? I really hope you are not a reading fan as that pathetic and idiotic statement will make me loose respect for a club which I rather liked. However you are probably a palace fan as only they could be so deluded. By the way palace, the bookies think you are going to get relegated!I sent the post regarding CMS pending transfer from Reading to Brighton. Just for the record I'm not jealous of anything Reading have fact well done to them. If anybody was at both games this season then they will tell u that We (Brighton) were outclassed at Reading and then we battered Reading but never got the result at the Amex. Our time will come but maybe not for a few seasons! You will sign CMS this week and hopefully he will do u a good service. Unfortunately no man is bigger than the team and it was clear to see his way is not suited to Poyets style of play. All that said thanks for all the effort Craig and good luck. Reading...back your manager and stop slating genuine players with a good work ethic!@comment 3 above ^^ cheers man, gotta say as a royal who's lived close to brighton for over 10 years its a shame you didn't hit playoffs, carry on like you did the latter half of the season (excusing the wet sham game) then you are looking strong for promotion, for that reason too, hope we dont snatch CMS up hopefully he'll find his shooting boots next season, potentials there, and then we'll snatch up Sigurdarson or someone like that hopefully, but yeah same as you guys said back at ya, seagulls, remind me of us a decade ago, coming into a golden age, new stadium team on the up, great manager, some great players, a few finishing touches and you'll be a force to be reckoned with!

Enough!!Why do charlton fans do this when they know that is never gonna happen.Chris Powell is looking at him - he got out his 2002 world cup Panini sticker album only last week i hearTHIS IS NOT A CAFC FAN SO STOP COMPLAINING! Any cafc fan with half a brain would realise that a football legend like del piero would go to the prem and not to a championship club even though we are amazing !Perhaps it's not Charlton fans, most of these posts seem to know little about Charlton.Charlton couldnt attract a tin can with a six foot magnet lol. Why would a legend play for a tinpot side like charlton. hes just as likely to sign for the mighty chairboysIt's a joke, keep your knickers on lads!I know who started this rumour and he is a tubby city fan trying to make charlton fans look bad. We all know we won't get him"Charlton couldnt attract a tin can with a six foot magnet lol" Yeah and Jorge Costa never played there, Charlton made it up.

But he's very injury prone and has spent most of this season on the physio bench.....not worth the effort and wouldnt make the step up as he's league 1 at very best.Hume is settled in preston no chanceWhat step up ipswich r league 1 team they cant keep fighting it come on downWhy do some fans keep saying that Ipswich will be in league 1 soon when we haven't been in that division in 50 odd years and we are the most consistent team in the championship? Some fans need to start worrying more about their own clubs.

I work with his cousin and his dad kiko and if we don't get a gud enough offer for him then jay will stay as he's claret n blue thru n thru . FACT . We rejected 5-6 mill from Southampton so he will deffo NOT go for anything less than 8 million so stop chatting out your rear ends !!Everton and Stoke are both skint mate!

Their team was too good to be in that position, they just lost 12 points because of players being sent off in winning positions


19 May 2012 19:30:53
To the person that said no thanks to Mckail Smith, yes we did pay too much for him. You obviously don't have faith in your manager...the deal will be announced Tuesday. He is being signed as a squad player that will run his nuts off even if it is for twenty mins. Brighton fans love him and yes it wasn't his greatest season but we applaud his hardworking ethics. Ps we don't know yet how much you are paying and yes we will probably lose on the deal but enjoy your season in the prem and when u finish bottom we will be waiting for u!(4)(7)But uh, He can't even cut it in the Championship, never mind the PL!
Face it, he is officially a flop.We may well finish bottom, but it will still be way above you!


19 May 2012 19:23:55
gary hooper to southampton monday, hints everywhere look at sky sports were in for him again and on our website were unveiling something monday good signing if my logic works out lol(29)(15)we are announcing jaidi is taking a coaching role otherwise a bigger deal would of been made about it.

Well we are in for hooper again will it come of this time? Who knows would be great signing but I just don't see it happening yetYou're buying a player that looks good in the SPL but my own opinion is that he's not good enough for the Premier.
Believe me, I've seen him play both in England and ScotlandUh Monday is a press conference about Jaidi retiring....?I would love it if this was true but i belive that the press confrence on monday is about radi jaihdi becoming a coach at the club not a signingJaidi retiring and the coaching role will have been organised months ago so can't see that on its own this requires a press conference. Hooper is certain looking for a move, even the Celtic supporters are thinking it will happen and Sky do seem to be indicating something is happening. Don't normally trust Sky but Celtic do leak information.Celtic leak information? southampton are a small time club,with small time ambitions ie. yoyo club!!!!!Yes, Celtic do leak information and Southampton are ambitious enough to bid for Celtic's top scoring striker. Yoyo club? Based on what?Surely a "yoyo" club would be a term used to describe a club that repeatedly oscillates between leagues? We had one bad patch of 5 years after one of the longest runs in top division football. Now we are back on the ascendency and in a better position than we have ever been. We have more ambition than Celtic, who will only every be champions of a sh1t league for their entire future as they never will have the finances to challenge europe. If Southampton get their plans in place they could easily be a top european team if things go their way and their academy gets going (which it will, it's one of the best in the world)He can't sign before the transfer window opens - doh!Why would he move to a team who is going to struggle next season when he'll be playing in the chamions league next year? silly little people!He's going to leeds hahah sorry i joke, it's just funny they think they can sign everyone!If the press conference on monday is a signing its more likely to be jay rod, now the playoffs have finished we can sign players from the championship"Celtic leak information? southampton are a small time club,with small time ambitions ie. yoyo club!!!"........ oh thats funny...No clue at all mateYes celtic do leak information, lennon talking to the press bout the hooper bid in last transfer window? actually saints have been been approved to increase capacity to 55k weve just spent 15mil on our training facilitys and our academy is now one of the best in the world, small time ambitions? lolIm pretty sure the transfer window is open?? {Ed025's Note - not yet..Hoopers got ambitions of playing for england and if he hasnt got near the squad yet he never will playing in scotlandWhen does the window open?? {Ed025's Note - 1st julyThe international transfer window opens on 1st july but ur able to sign from english clubs once play-offs have finishedIt's Monday and no announcements. Is someone's crystal ball playing up!

As already said won't drop down out of Premier league, I forget Sheffield are both "Big" clubs thoughDnt think so he has already said he wont be leaving the premSince Owen has said that he is not playing in Championship, Sheffield W is out of the question! - Sheffiel U still got a possibility to sign him :)Owls last home attendance was 38,082 with 469 away fans included (all full price tickets). Whats not big about that?What was the average attendance most of that 38k dint crawl from under their stones until the last game.MASSIVE...........I thought both of the massive clubs were battling it out for ronaldo and messi

19 May 2012 18:44:54
Who is the silly little boy with the green envy in his eyes, spitting out his dummy at the thoiught that Saints can't possibly be a big team? Not big on fan size - as that doesn't count - says he! Not big on playing good football? Back to back promotions would suggest we are not doing too bad. Maybe it's because we haven't played against the top flight in 7 years. Now I get you. What is your specialist subject? Stating the bleeding obvious or not accepting change? The Saints train is rolling and get used to it!(18)(15)Just watch it get derailedYou lot are completely delusional you do not have a large fan base.
You would be lucky to scrape into the premier league base on fan base alone.Derailed? Not a chance!6000 away to palace, 48000 went to wembley, higher average than a third of premiership sides whilst in championship. Sound like a poor fan base to you? Look it up.Our fan base has been struggling recently due to our downward plight but since our ascension to the premiership we have been nearing full capacity.

Premiership will bring full capacity, and you only have to look at rival neighbouring clubs and you will see that for premiership (and high quality football) Southampton have the largest catchment area for fans, we could essentially be the driving force for a quarter of the country as we are the main team in the South of England outside London.

Our championship attendance was higher than a large number of prem clubs, next year will be higher and will only be limited by the capacity of our stadium. With success it will only grow, and like I said most of the South of England outside London will see Southampton as their closest 'big' club if we can just get a few good seasons in the prem.Don't worry about replying Saints fans......we all know that they're just peeved that their little Clubs are going no-where and we've shown every fan and media member that thought we would struggle, heart, passion and a willingness to win!

From the top of the Club to the bottom its a great place to be.......BLISS!

Maybe one out of this lot.Dont you read the papers, Lewis has signed for CardiffI'd be surprised if the saints get Clyne, got half of the prem chasing him.Jarvis £4 mill. Really? Another £2 mill and you might get Messi. #dreamerWolves have publicly stated they want 10 million for jarvis. That might be a little optimistic but we aint letting him go for 4.Nathan clyne 2 toon!!!Think you should look at the number of wingers available who are better than Jarvis.

michu 5m
antonio 1.5m
redman 6.5m
hooper 8m(16)(21)Where did all that money come from£90million from promotion.

Capacity sell outs in stadium next year.

Sale of Oxlade-Chamberlin.

That gets you up over £110million mark alone...

But I do share your scepticism that Saints will be prepared to spend that much, although I do like those signings we would need more defensive ones. Add in the 2 - 3 defensive signings we need and we are signing 9 players on that list... which isn't happening!Who on earth thinks Antonio could cut it in the Prem,if that's the sort of signing some think we should go for we might as well roll over and give it up now.He wasn't good enough when he was on loan before,put it to bed,the boy'd be pants against Premier teams.He's a League one player.You wont sign redmond hes top 6 team bpund, hooper? champions league next chance! ince woud be a good signing but he'll stay at blackpool for another season,Oh and make you dont get 90 million upfront its 40 when promoted and 12 million a year for 4 year.Haha no way will Southampton spend £30m plus this summer , not a chanceAntonio was quality for us thats why we tried to get him back, and the saints fans sung we want antonio in the friendly against reading!It says possible ins im sure other teams are after some of these players aswell, weve been linked with all the above but i dout wil get all of them, antonio wil be playing in the championship or the prem next year, saints obviously rate him both pardew and adkins have tried to bring him backAntonio was not good enough.Jay Rod going to saints! Defo.. Burley replacing him with Pugh from afc Bournemouth!!"you don't get £90million upfront"

Absolutely irrelevant mate unless you are planning on doing transfers with cash in hand! It's the credit that is coming in that gives us increased capital and thus increased funds to spend in the transfer market, through loans and other financial instruments etc.Ince - no chance when he leaves it will not be to a more established Prem disrespect but you may not survive next year... {Ed015's Note - So there's a chance then?}


19 May 2012 17:33:02
Baldock to either Charlton or Ipswich on loan.
Steven Fletcher to Arsenal(9)(20)Fletcher would be good signing,the guy is old fashioned striker and i mean that in a good way.Whoever gets fletcher will land a diamond22 goals in 40 starts in a poor wolves team who have struggle to score goals. Whoever signs him will be suprised just how good he is.It wont be a loan charlton ARE looking to sign him for about 1m (might not happen but i KNOW we are interested)I would hope Fletcher does sign for a club like Arsenal instead of being linked to poison like QPR or Stoke.Baldock to leeds or brightonWell he isn't going to Leeds and Brighton so sh! They have no moneyHe is suposed to go watford aswell though and that seems o be more likelyRumour that Baldock to Blackpool on season long loan...

Also I bet Charlton havent even got 5 Mill to spend.We have no idea on budget at charlton JRod will go prem imoIm a charlton fan and 1) this will most likely NOT have come from a charlton fan 2) we are a more attractive club than burnley (more ambition, money and in london) 3) one of our 3 owners is kevin cash (look him up) he has 100's of millions for us and we have more money than you, i no we wont be signing these players but think before you post something like 'Charlton dont have 5 million'!!!!!!!!!How much do they have 8 million?Just because he's called Kevin cash doesn't mean he has all the money in the world and can buy every player , as for charlton being a better team than burnley Pah they'd y u wer league 1 last year , u will see when we take 6 points off u st cunjys next season . UTCOmg your charlton mate, no offence but your nothing special, you wont sign players of that calibre.Nobody knows who the money behind Charlton is, that's why they have companies in tax havens owning the shares and front men running it.

Anyone can see this deal will not happen apart from the 12 year old that wrote it. Most of these posts are not from Charlton fans, this is obvious from the little knowledge they have of the club.Jay is worth at least 6 Alone, this rumour is a load of rubbish


19 May 2012 17:08:54
Celtic fc have entered the race to sign Jordan Rhodes they have stated that they will put a maximum bid of upto 5million to secure him(17)(15)Looks like on his way to Fulham depending on next saturdays resultNo they have notWith Hooper off to Southampton it makes senseHooper is going no where

Dicanio warned the Swindon Board,now wait and see he will return to West Ham next week.
Swindon fans miss out yet again.
Where is this mega Rich Board???
Funds are not in place and with the Budget West Ham will give Dicanio he is bound to accept the job.
Who will Swindon appoint???? is so sad for the Fans(1)(20)Don't believe that for a minute. How stupid would Gold&Sullivan be to sack Allardyce now after winning the playoff final and giving the job to DiCanio.
DiCanio could become West Ham manager one day, but let's see what he can do with a League One or Championship club first.
Allardyce will continue to work towards making West Ham a team that'll be hard to beat, looking forward to it...Seeing West Ham have just won promotion, Allardyce won't be going anywhere soon.Same sad oxford fan writing all this bull about PDC. You can't even spell his name correctly.What an absolute load of bull, this is such a useless joke of a post and I'm a Leeds. FanPoor sad little boy

Ipswich boss Paul Jewell has been in contact with Craig Gordan about a posible move to ipswich town, the talks are believed to be going well and Paul Jewell would love to make him an ipswich town goal keeper!(10)(6)Not the only place where ive herd this!Ipswich are apparently signing every player in the world if you listen to their deluded fansI knew it wouldn't take long for an Ipswich fan to write this rubbish.

TeejLUFCOnly because you at Leeds can't sign anybody cause your skint and a small clubHow are they going to afford his wagesIts a fact Leeds are struggling to find £450'000 for Ward, Ipswich have got a sizeable cash fund from ME, to strengthen this summerThere is no sixeable amount ,clegg already said ipswich over 100% on wages to income slashing budget expect ipswich to be challenging for league 1 again


19 May 2012 16:06:33
Free Agent David Connolly has caused interest from Bradford city, Rotherham united and Dagenham & Redbridge. The 34 year old doesn't plan on retiring any day soon.(10)(5)He also doesn't plan to drop a division...Don't know about dropping a division. At his age he will go where suits him best rather than aiming for a specific division. I can see him playing for a decent League 1 side, but yes generally I would imagine him to go for a middle-lower championship side.


19 May 2012 16:01:11
emile heskey is at huish park on a trial to see whether he fits into gary johnson's plans, the striker was released by Aston Villa and has said he has no interest in earning masses of money however would like to play at the highest possible level(6)(14)And his highest possible level is Yeovil?? Stop moking whetever you are onNorwich want heskey!


19 May 2012 15:57:58
Southampton looking to bring in two strikers to create a premiership class attack force. Can expect to hear the names AKINFENWA and HESKY in a saints shirt next season.
On another note, i haven't heard many rumours that have been realistic so i thought i would post a couple i think could be possible or would be nice to see happen.
Chung Yong Lee - Bolton - 3/4Million
Dirk Marcellis - AZ Alkmaar - 1.5 Million
Marten Martaens - AZ Alkmaar - 5 Million
Tranquillo Barnetta - Bayer Leverkusen - Free(i believe)
Mavuba - Lille - 6 Million [ would love to see this happen, great player would be perfect alongside cork or schneiderlin](3)(20)Most of these are a load of rubbish.

Think something might be announced on Monday.All of it is rubbish!I enjoy FIFA as much as the next man but the glitch in the program that makes some players much much better than they are in real life, beast some would say, is just that, a glitch. With that I hope that neither hesky or that northampton player arrive and I sincerely doubt they will.A premier league class attack force involving Akinfenwa I'll have a pint of what you're having! Sounds like you've just read down the page and bundled all the rumours into one massive load of rubbish!Chung-Yong Lee will have better offers than Southampton.Akinfewa and Hesky were obviously jokes you muppets.

The others are just names you've heard elsewhere then tried to quantify a tranfer fee for, nothing new or groundbreaking here.Chung Yong Lee won't leave until January, the big clubs need to be sure that he can get back to full fitness again.Chungy isn't going anywhere. especially for 4 million and especially to Southampton

Thirdly Kieran Lee is very close to signing for Sheffield Wednesday.And fourthly, he has signed for WednesdayFifthly you can't afford the wages he will be on now at Sheff Wed.

I am a Brighton fan and I'm sick of all the ipswitch fans saying how theyare going to sign every player under the sun. It is frankly ridiculous as at the moment, you are not all that attractive. You struggled to a bottom half finish and your support have been cpromised by the success of norwich. Wake up and get real! Oh, and Norwich are a bigger, better club than you and they are not a sinking ship (if they are then ipswitch must be totally sunk!).(14)(5)Well I am not an Ipswich fan Mr Brighton but you don't half look stupid with your inability to spell.Also last year - it was Brighton this and Brighton that - biggest deal deal you did was Craig Mickail SuperflopBut we still finished way above ipsh1t...What do you have in common with door.... and a .... of butter?Tbf ipswich say it every year, makes it all the better that the only class they attract is nathan ellington!1. you can't spell

Everton are set to state an interest in either Craig gordon or Allan McGregor from Rangers, other targets are Villareal midfeildet Borja V & Fulhams Clint Dempsey. Moyes could sell Jack Rodwell to Celtic in order to gather in some funds {Ed025's Note - celtic can not afford rodwell, he would be at least 15m..(2)(9)I hope Dempsey stays, but if he does move I think it'll be to a CL club. He's said he would like to play CL, otherwise very happy where he is. If he moves I think either Manchester Utd or ArsenalValero wont hack the prem,he was a fish out of water when he was at the Baggies.Why on earth would Rodwell ever go to Celtic?
1) They cant afford him
2) He wants to play for England
3) He's a premier league class player
4) Premier League teams who can afford him will buy him if he's availableRodwell is worth 25 million mate u lot r in dream land u win the league by default and u are the best since sliced breed you lot r clowns just like ur managerWinning the league by default? but 20-10=10? We were 2 points clear in December, way before Rangers sold Jelavic or were in administrationI think youll find the only team to win tainted titles is rankers over last twenty year as youll find out when they get stripped off yous this is the first title thats not been tainted in the last twenty year

Sunderland to bring in Weimann from Aston Villa to bolster their attacking options with Kevin Davies from relegated Bolton another option. Nicklas Bentner's loan deal will not be renewed. Connar Wickham will be allowed to go out on loan to gain much needed first team experience.

Sunderland really should be looking to bring in a big name to the SOL to excite the fans. Something they haven't seen since Kevin Phillips.

With Gordon being released another Goalkeeper will need to be brought in. Rumour has it that they couldn't agree a new contract due to the players wage demands, with Sunderland being reluctant to pay high wages to a player who has spend a large portion of his Sunderland career on the long term injury list.

They will face a very tough challenge to hang on to Stephan Sessegnon who has been attracting attention from former club PSG. The player could hand in a written transfer request, should such an offer come in for him.

One thing the Sunderland fans do not want to see is O'Neill bringing in a load of Villa rejects.

A long summer ahead at the Stadium of Light.....(2)(14)K.Davies has signed a new contract at BoltonKevin Davies has just signed a contract with Bolton.You just guessingLoad of bcks. Gordon released because Westwood and Mignolet are better and he is too injury prone.
Sess staying unless someone bids 20 mill and no one will!

Dicanio to join West Ham, reason Money has not been made available to bring new players in.
Seems he warned the club that they had to decide,hence reason all is quiet.
Also Mat Ritchie/Aden Flint/Billy Bodin to leave.
Candidate for Swindon Job is martin Ling(6)(15)Same old same old...getting boring nowLOL totally untrue. More money at Swindon than West Ham even though they got promoted, and Big Sam won't leave because they got promoted. Bodin is also signing a new contract.


19 May 2012 12:01:28
Aston Villa's search for a new manager continues.

Martinez had talks with Randy Lerner (AVFC owner) on Thursday which is why no talks with Liverpool have gone underway.
Lambert is pleading with the Norwich board to allow him access to contact with Aston Villa.
solskjaer had possible talks with Villa on Friday & Lerner has gone back to the USA for a few days to manage some family issues.

Lerner is apparently looking to find a Director of Football at Villa Park first, Gerard Houllier could apparently be set for a shock Villa return in that job capacity.
Gus Poyet has apparently been ruled out having got no top side experience.(2)(13)So if Poyet is ruled out for having no top side experience how are:
Martinez/Solskjaer/Lambert all in the frame? none have managed a top sideTop side - A EPL team not Championship/League 1Lambert pleading to go to Villa? Lambert pleading the board not to give him permission sounds more realistic...Carroll is on 80 actually {Ed025's Note - i think he deserves the full pound..

David Connolly is to sign for Watford on 1st July after being released by Southampton.

Posh given first refusaln Harry Kane from Spurs for next season. Also looking at a number of younger lads released by Spurs, Arsenal and Fulham(5)(7)Why would they get first refusal? surley if a club of a higher division offerd him better quality of football to develope him..they would sooner him go there?Why would Peterborough get first refusal, he was on loan at Millwall and they are very interested in signing him.Leicester City have also enquired about Harry Kane according to their local paper (and Radio Leicester sport)Millwall are interested in bringing Kane back to the den but spurs rate him highly and dnt want to sell him yet so a years loan would suit both parties Kane did stat that he would love to come back if spurs were to loan him out again, but if a higher placed club come in for him and spurs feel it's better for his development he will probably go there

Big Rumours From Cardiff Craig Bellamy Has Said That He Would Love To Play For Caridff This Coming Season, His Main Reason For Joining Liverpool Was Daglish Without Him There He Would Prefer A Move Back To His Hometown.(12)(20)Bellamy will look for one more big signing on payday rumour has it he will be joining anelka's teamHis main reason for joining liverpool was the 80k he was picking up nothing to do with kenny

daviebhoy08 {Ed001's Note - you couldn't be more wrong! He bought out his contract and took a pay cut to play under Dalglish actually. He was offered more by Cardiff, without the need to buy out his contract either, but took the Liverpool offer to play for his hero. It was nothing to do with money, you have no idea. I don't even know where you got this 80k nonsense from, dreaming I think, not one new player, that has arrived since FSG took over, earns over 70k a week and only one player gets that much, Suarez.}


19 May 2012 07:16:41

Ian Harte is thought to be considering his options after being told by Brian Mcdermott he will only be used as cover next season. The main interested club are believed to be his former club Leeds who he would welcome the chance to go back where he would be more wanted. Reason: Yet to sign a contract which he was offered almost a month ago(9)(14)Nonsense. He's been offered a new one year deal and is currently on holiday. He knows he could be a bit part player but he has been quoted as saying he wants to be part of one final Premiership campaign before he hangs his boots up next summer.

Chances of him turning that down for a Championship club 2/10.


19 May 2012 02:07:57
Following his fairly consistent season, including his prolific form towards the end of the SPL season for Celtic, it is thought that Gary Hooper could be making a move back over the border into England, with a large number of teams interested in acquiring his highly sought after signature.

From a source very close to the club, I can add fuel to the ever growing fire that Gary Hooper could infact be on his way to Carrow Road subject to the future of Grant Holt following his recent transfer request. I believe that if Norwich do infact keep hold of Holt over the Summer, a number of teams are waiting and monitoring the situation very closeley, with the front-runners being West Brom who are interested in swapping Marc Antoine Fortune with the English forward.

Watch this space.(5)(16)Norwich after Hooper to replace HoltThink you are right that Hooper will move south-but it will be a good deal further south than Norwich!
You are about to lose your manager,and your top player-why would he join an unstable club?Hooper probably if moves he will go to saints
Norwich look to miss out on Rhodes and go to Fulham and holt to everton or Newcastle due to demba ba 7mil arsenal deal!Celtic bhoy here, hoops has been fantastic this year and would like to add,
I hope he stays and at least gives the champs league a go.
Don't know what money would be involved but would like to think 7m +Hi Celtic bhoy-I think you will find Hoopers 5 goals were a swan song, and he will be away.
He stalled on his new contract negotiations for a reason, and whilst he may want to play Champions League I suspect he also rates his chances at international honours, and with due respect he will not get that showing each week that he can score against rubbish defenders.Can i just remind u lot gary hooper plays in the SPL a league that isnt better than the blue square league, and you lot think he is good enough for the EPL get a grip.It isnt better than the Blue Square? One word - the above poster I would like to remind you that Jelavic came to the EPL from the SPL and he seems to be scoring for fun. Hooper will score goals wherever he plays - end of. EPL is miles better than the SPL and no-one will dispute that - but it is full of foreign imports hence why the england team is not great at the minute.How is the spl not better than the blue square prem? Typical english always biast. IM not backing up the spl or anything cos il admit its not the best league in the world but if the splk is so st then why do all you english prem teams buy all the best players from scotland. Heres a list

Adam rooney - birmingham
Ricardo Vaz te - west ham
James Mcarthy - wigan
James Mcarthur - wigan
gary caldwell - wigan
Connor sammon - wigan
David goodwillie - blacburn
Shaun maloney - wigan
Jos hooiveld not good enough for celtic - southampton
Darren odea not good enough for celtic - leeds
John fleck not good enough for rangers - blackpool
And many more
All these players have only left a season or 2 ago so shove you blue square premier up your assO ye but the spl is full of scottish talent hence why the national team is doing brilliantly. In fact i forgot they qualified for a major international tournament. What a pathetic thing to say. The reason why the england team is rubbish atm is because it lacks cohesion and is holding on too what brooking called the "golden generation"All of the players are in the 2 second division or bottom of the 1st I rest my caseEngland national team is an utter joke in the next 5 years they will be a laughing stock of the giants in football and when uefa bring in the domestic caps on transfer fees and wages watch all the big players leave and your league go down the pan typical thick football fanWho would swap fortune for holt, fortune been immense this season
