Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

United will not sell Carrick to the highest bidder. He is starting to settle in well and was an expensive signing. Even if he was a flop SAF wouldn't sell him until next summer as it takes him 2 years to admit to being wrong about a player. Veron, Djemba, Kleberson, Miller - all had roughly 2 years at United.All rumours about davis leaving villa are not true. MO'N likes his potential, but needs to increase squad size, as davis is not at his best in 4-3-3. Baros will leave to the first decent offer. Agathe will not be staying, but sutton will.Villa HUGE NEWS!

Beckham arriving a Villa in jan for £8million

beleived because his overall wages in two yrs will get back to the club in merchandising Beckham on Villa shirts, tops, mugs etc

TRUE!Much talk around anfield at the present time of unease in the dressing room and even amongst certain players and in general around the club itself, questions are being asked about players desire and loyalty and though Benitez would be loathe to admit it he may have to shipout a few of his spanish aquisitions, the major one being Xabi Alonso who's form has been poor to say the least this season and who's interesting both Barca and Real Madrid, with figures quoted as high as £20 million. Also Reina appears to have become a target for Valencia and with Carson in such splendid form he will be shipped off next summer for around £6 - £7 million, along with Garcia, Zenden, Aurelio, Kewell, Fowler and other players who are presently on loan at various clubs, with the funds he recoups from these sales,(in the region of at least £35- £40 million) the money will be spent on these touted players being whispered around the corridors of anfield, Micah Richards at right back, Gareth Bale at left back, both to inject a little pace in the defence and as possible cover in the centre, Barton, Reo-Coker, or possibly Nolan in the centre as cover for either Gerrard or Sissoko, as Gerrard with be reverting back to his favoured position in the middle of the park next season, and also Gabriel Agbonglahor as cover on either wing and to challenge Pennant for a place in the team. Any money left over will be used to recruit talented young players and a top class stiker, Robbie Keane and Defoe in particular have been mooted as future signings, indeed it seems that Benitez wants to introduce players with pace, strength, skill and a good work ethic as well as being of UK citizenship.This bodes well for the future to have a good crop of english young hungry players at the club.This may seem an unlikely turn around by Benitez in that he wants to sign british players, but the fact is these are the rumours emenating from LfC.Strong rumours persist at

the Lane that the board are getting edgey about Warnock's inability to attract top name players, it would seem that everyone of any note are willing to play for The Blades but not him. We have the money in place to surprise many in the game. do we have the manager?Why is it nucastle fans fink they are buying steve davis. we will not release one of our most talented FA youth cup winners of 2002. Any how that said here is villa rumours. SWP 2 villa in jan with one more TOP signing. this other is unknown however, there are others 2 follow but less high profile. Expect a tottenham striker, they have 2 many and perhaps the sale of baros who is moaning about being on the bench. Angel will happily stay on the bench as a sub if needed in games, therefore it makes sense to buy some real quality.FOR ALL PLYMOUTH ARGYLE fans and the rest of the Championship clubs. Ian Holloway has AGREED deals to sign RETO ZEIGLER, CHARLIE LEE (both Spurs) and NICKY BUTT (Newcastle) on loan for the rest of the season. This WILL happen, beleive me.

Holloway has also lined up Bournemouth striker JAMES HAYTER with NICK CHADWICK going the otherway as part of the deal. BOJAN DJORDJIC may join Swindon on loan, but Ollie has been impressed with his attitude lately and may decide to use him. MATT JARVIS is set to join from Gillingham for around £300k.

Bolton had their orginal £1m bid for Argyle's AKOS BUSZAKY rejected and have now upped it to £1.25m. I know coz I seen the documents! West Ham, Wigan and Reading are also interested but have been put off by the price tag. Gospel!Eggert Magnussen has virtually wrapped up the deal to buy West Ham United, but Hammers fans shouldn't expect him to swoop in and throw millions of pounds at teams like Abramovich does. David Beckham won't be swapping the Bernabeu for Upton Park, believe me. Leave Beckham alone, he's said he wants to stay at Real so the likelihood is he will stay at Real. West Ham will sell Carlos Tevez, but Javier Mascherano will stay. Tevez has failed to make any impact, and will fall behind Dean Ashton, Bobby Zamora, Marlon Harewood and Teddy Sheringham in the pecking order. Mascherano will be the replacement for Nigel Reo-Coker, whose future is in the balance after constant speculation about a move to Arsenal.Villa are oing in for scot parker,(y stay at a relegation team when he could leave 4 a champions league team). Also expect d. bent to come (same reason)and jan klass huntelar.With Chelsea looking for a new right back, that will leave Geremi out in the cold with the rest of the "non-starters" PLG of Rangers might be tempted with a loan move for him as he can play in many positions, but mainly for the right back spot. With Kaboul as the number one target, Le Guen is thinking of pairing him with a Liverpools Paletta on loan till the end of the season where he hopes to capture Givet of monaco when we shall then have the transfer fund we were promised in the summer there."Eduardo De Silva from Dinamo Kiev" that you speek of, is actualy "Eduardo Da Silva from Dinamo Zagreb". He is already one of the best fowards in Europe at this moment, having scored against Arsenal, England, Israel. .As I follow Dinamo, I asure you that "Dudu" is as close to Wes Brom. move, as Albania ar

e to winning the WC. No chance mate. He has been linked to PSV mostly (even Tottenham lately), but unfortunately he will stay in Zagreb where he can't develop any more. .cheers from ZagrebGutted. I have two teams, for my sins, and they are Necastle United and Real Betis. According to the Spanish press Luque is now going to Betis. I can't get rid of the overpaid fool!

There has also been some strong links with several loan players one of which is Edu and Francesco Tavano of Valencia with an option to buy in the summer. But with Edu now sidelined for 7 months this now looks doubtful. A liitle closer to home tho GR is looking long and hard at Colins John. Young, quick, strong and causes problems up front. 3.5 mil should do it and as he will not sign an extension this looks more and more likely. Don't expect to see huge changes at West Ham in January now the takeover has gone through, but i do expect Pards to make one transfer massive coup. Real Madrid will be prepared to let Becks go on Loan untill the end of the season before his contract Expires, and if Pards can convince Becks he can force his way back into the England sqaud by playing regulary in the Premier league, he'll be coming to the Irons for sure.RANGERS NEWS:

We will try to get Scott Brown for £2m as wee need to make about 5 signings and Brown would take up a fair bit of our Transfer Budget

We will sign Robbie Neilson and Stephen Pressley for £800k

We won't get Younas Kaboul as he is valued at 6 millionRangers to sign:

Pressley - £200k

Anderson - £400k

Neilson - £300k

Severin - £400k

Brown - £1.5m

Rangers to Sell:

Novo - £400k hes just useless

Rodriguez - £500k same as above

Svensson - loan back to Sweden

Buffel - £1.5m

Burke - £300k (don't think hes stayin lads) :(

we will get Alan Smith on loan until the end of the season

PS. My mate knows that Newcastle have got scouts watching Clement and Stevie Smith and they might make a £6m bid for both of them in January

I would take it and get Brown, Whittaker, Kaboul and SeverinGOOONERNEWS Birmingham City are set to offer £12million for Larsson,Muamba and Bendtner if they get promoted this season?Eric Abidal will only join Arsenal if Arsene Wenger fails in his bid to sign Gareth Bale(southampton)?It also seems likely that Arsenal will make a move for Craig Gordon(Hearts)in January.Arsenal's two main transfer targets though are Franck Ribery(the deal is virtually done for the summer)and Micah Richards.Gordon and Ribery will be the only big name players to arrive as AW wants to spend heavily on youngsters like Bale,Richards and Nuri Sahin.David beckham is going to join west ham in janurary. .

higuain is going to chelsea or madrid: he prefers madrid but -shockingly- chelsea have offered more cash for the latest south american sensation.

gago will join madrid though in janurary.

i read on here somewhere that riquleme is going to west ham. please get a grip. Roman plays football at a very slow tempo which is just not suited to england and he doesn't track back or even attempt to defend. There is no doubting his class but he is not coming to england. period.With Maloney looking to be set to leave Celtic, with Newcastle, Spurs or Aston Villa the likely destinations, Celtic will look to retain Derek Riordan and use him more after January. Celtic will also look to snap up Rangers midfielder Chris Burke, who is afterall a Celtic fan and hasn't been enjoying the best of time at ibrox recently.

Celtic have other targets for January (Brown from Hibs, McDonald from Dundee Goodwillie from Dundee United and Barr from Falkrik) Who are all long term signings aimed at improving the team long term, but there will also be a replacement for Bobo Balde, should he leave and cover for the fullback positions.Norwich misfit Andy Hughes is set to join up with Wycombe Wanderers in the January Transfer Window after a string a sub standard performances. Peter Grant is pursuing Reading's Glen Little as a like for like replacement.Now the takeover is complete,Alan Pardew will try to bring in Bridge,Wright-phillips and Gudhonnson.Out will go Benayoun,Reo-Coker,Mascherano and Zamora.He's hoping to convince Tevez to stay,as he can see his potential.The impending divorce involving Roman Abramovich and his wife means that he maybe about to pull his money out of Chelsea - leaving them with a crippling debt. Also, rumours abound that Milan Mandaric is looking at Iain Dowie or Alan Curbishley as potential managers at The Walkers Stadium. Alan Smith of Man.Utd could be set for a shock-loan move to Leicester in January.Sparta Prague midfielder Ludovic Sylvestre is a transfer target for Sheff United, other signings could be Kieran Richardson, Carlos Edwards and David Nugent. nhSWFC transfers in;Billy sharp-scunthorpe-£600k Kevin Pressman-free-till end of season and another Gk Gary Roberts-Accrington Stanley-£100k OUT;Steve Adams-swindon-£250k,Chris Adamson-Bury-FreeBarry Corr-Bristol C-freeWATFORD TRANSFER NEWS!

Aidy boothroyd is aiming to get man u's akan smith on loan any time soon. Also Foster will stay on loan for another season as SAF still has Van Der Sar for 1 more year(till he retires). David Healy will join in January for £500,000, other possible targets include n ellington, r earnshaw, c edwards, r parlour, r wright.Id like to clear up a few things on the arsenal front. First of all Arsene Wenger will not be buying ANYONE in january as he says he is happy with his squad. Obviously he also said he may be forced in the event of an injury crisis.

Second of all nicklas bendter won't be leaving permanatly he will stay with birmingham till the end of next season ensuring that they have got back into the premiership. Fabrice muamba will do the same and sebastian larsson will join permanently in january. Anthony Stokes will go on loan to birmingham next season also and then return to Arsenal to fight for a regular place. Arturo Lupoli will be sold to Derby county on a permanent basis in the summer and Fran Merida will join Derby on loan in january.Barnsley have sacked Andy Ritchie because Ian Dowie has become available, Dowie willtake over in next week and will be allowed to commute from his home in the North westMy uncle who is on the liverpool board told me that liverpool are gonna get rid of Reina (6M) and Dudek (1M) and bring back carson and also get in Ludovic Butelle. Also they will sign Cicinho as our new RB for £8M, Scott Parker £7M, Aaron Lennon £12M + Harry Kewell, also they will sign Marco Ruben from Argentina fo £4M.These will happen in the Summer.But In January they are going to try and sign Micah Richards for around £12M, he will then be used at CB or RB.Rafa will also get rid of Warnock, Hyypia and Zenden.Team for next season will be Carson (GK) Cicinho(RB) Richards(CB) Carra(CB) Riise(LB) Pennant (RM) Gerrard (CM) Alonso(CM) Lennon (LM) Kuyt(ST) Ruben (ST). Come on LIVERPOOL!Liverpool will sign Aaron lennon and Cicinho in the summer. and they will sign Micah Richards in Jan!This is for sure!Westham will use that 15m kitty in january for -shaun wright-phillips (loan)

wayne bridge (3m)

tranquillo barnetta (4.5m)

freddy eastwood (1m + zamora in exchange)

micah richards (7m)

15m from NRC will be used to bring in-

joey barton (5m)

preston edwards (500k)

and they will make a suprised bid for darren bent (10m)Jose Mourinho will enhance his squad in the summer with only three signings, they will be Micah richards(in the region of £10M), Fernando Torres(£20-25M)and finally Aaron Lennon(£20M)

They will sell Shaun Wright-Phillips as he has failed to live up to his price tag after being given many chances and Paulo Ferriera will be sold to a Spanish or Portugese club because he has gradually got worst since he arrived at Stamford Bridge. Lassana Diarra will be sent out on loan to a lesser premier league club to develop his skills in the english game, he will need this as he will replace Claude Makelele in 2 seasons time. With Jimmy Smith and Micheal Mancienne impressing performances whilst on loan with QPR Mourinho will therefore push them for subs places next season with the plan to make them regulars in two years time. Mourinho has seen some youth players that may have a promising future at the club such as: Ryan Bertrand(on loan at Bournemouth),Scott Sinclair(mold of a younger Aaron Lennon but can play as a centre forward aswell), Sergio Tejera(young Spaniad that was bought from Espanyol earlier in the year), Miroslav Stoch(a pacey winger with bags of skill) and Ben Sahar(young,quick and skillful)

With these players the team for 4-5 years time could possibly look like this:



-Smith-Diarra-Obi Mikel-



Weihrauch,Yves Ma Makalambey,Hurrell, R.Fernandes,F.FerrieraWest brom will sell john hartson to norwich for around £150,000 just to get his wages free so mowbray can buy brown from hibernan.Hibs:Brown and Thomson are going nowhere , Gers can't afford them.

Watch for Neil Sullivan coming soonAfter united dismall show against celtic sir alex ferguson will dip into the transfer market in january. no 1 target is fernando torres. saha has proved that he is to incosisstant with his finishing, and fegie belives torres is the man to fire united to glory in europe- should they make it. expect bids of 20 million plus for the talented spaniardJWIRE____________________________________________


Real Mardid:Marcelo(already joined,playing with b team until work permit comes through),Gago,Higuain and possisbly Kaka but it would need a bid of £45 million+.

Barcelona:Barce are looking for a new striker with a few in mind.They are Carlos Tevez,Albert Luque and suprisingly Swedish striker Elmander.

Chelsea:Anderson looks likly although there will be a battle with Barcelona.Also a young mid from COLO COLO in Chile,his name is Fernandes.

Liverpool:Young Argie Ruben will be arriving in January if a work permit can be sorted if not then they will still go for him in the summer.

Aresnal:Ribery in the summer,Carvalho possisbly and will show intrest in Van Der Vaart.

Manchester United:Nani in January for £6 million,and he is not a striker as has been mentioned here,he is a winger.

A striker will definitly be bought in January,forget about Darren Bent.Fernando Torres will be targeted again but United have no intention of paying his buy-out clause.£22 million or no go.Huntelaar will stay in Ajax for another year at least.

De Rossi will not be joining.

Newcastle:Belgravia group will make a formal bid in the next month so transfer budgets are yet to be announced so targets can't really be looked into great detail.

Lucho Gonzalez is not going anywhere he only signed a four year deal last week.Man utd 2 sign 5 new players ova the next 2 transfer windows a right back nelson/richards a left winger ribery/nani a defensive midfielder hargreaves/de rossi a striker torres/huntelear and a out and out midfielder helstad/makoun. kaka won't be leavin milan and ronaldinho won't leave barca and even if they were 2 leave they would be sold 2 the highest bidder and united don't put all there eggs in 2 1 basket ne more as even though they r great players in their leagues the premiership is total different it's faster and more physical these players thrive on havin time and space on the ball and u just don't get that in the premiership and i don't think they have the physical strength 2 it either and brazilians have a history of not doin well in the premiership kleberson ring any bells the weathers 2 cold.
