Forest Green Rovers will not let Reece Styche leave and haven't made any contact with Cheltenham Town. Seems no deal was ever going to happen.

CTFC have rubbished this rumour, in fact they laughed at it.



24 Jul 2012 22:05:27
Bristol city will sign Liverpools Danny Wilson on a season long loan before the end of July. Tom Heaton will be unveiled as Citys 3rd summer signing either tomorrow or Thursday.
The Buzsacky deal has stalled, Forrest have opted to look elsewhere but Hull are rumoured to be intrested. Alot of Tom Bradshaw of Shrewsbury rumours floating around as well.

Forest as in Nottingham Forest or Forrest as in Forrest Gump?

The Tom Bradshaw rumours are false.

Kanu is on his way to town



24 Jul 2012 20:54:30
Ed i was wondering if u had any info/gossip on who akos buszacky will be signing for? I'm a bristol city fan and i know we and a few other teams were in for him but the last couple of days alls gone quiet so was wondering if u knew anything. Thanks {Ed001's Note - I was told Cardiff, Sheff Weds and Middlesbrough had all shown interest and spoken to his agent. Not heard anything since myself. Probably just looking over the offers and making a decision, judging by the silence, over the last couple of days.}



24 Jul 2012 20:52:43
Barrie Mckay has became the latest player to leave Rangers. The 18 year old striker originally was meant to stay with the financially stricken club but has sensationally left the club tonight due to unforeseen circumstances. This is a major blow for Ally McCoist who had the youngster down as one of his key players this season.

He played yesterday



24 Jul 2012 21:39:35
Shrewsbury set to swoop to sign Sammy clingan on a free transfer

Would be a great player for you

No they wont cause theyre not signing any more midfielders

Yeah he's arriving in shropshire today

Ryan woods set to leave on loan to afc Telford to let clingan in - deal set to be completed next week

No more midfielders needed.

For nothing?...he's not worth that much.

Better quality is always needed if he can improve the squad a quality player

Sammy is to good for you



24 Jul 2012 21:27:52
blackpool fc have signed Portuguese midfielder Tiago Gomes

Blackpool are set to sign robertson of dundee utd

Looks like Ollie wants to play a team of midfielders- maybe get the record for consecutive 0-0 draws ( might be just enough to get into the play offs) {Ed003's Note - I can't see that somehow lol}

He does want to play the Spanish way and they played 4-6-0

Gomez could be used as a false number 9, he wants to play like Spain and Barcelona so it makes sense to sign some attack minded midfield players really. And with this whole Rangers buyout thing it has been suggested that Ferguson could be on his way(nothing official just fans talk), Robertson may be his replacement..

That makes no sense.Ferguson would leave to go to Rangers which are in the bottom league of scottish football. It won't happen.

Ferguson has been asked if brown takes over at Rangers if he'd be willing to put 40k in along with several other ex players and wealthy supporters, there's no more to it than that.

The takeover is no more than a pipe dream ATM anyway.

Dont be silly ferguson is the captain he aint going nowhere crazy person!

Great signing for the pool ! UTP



24 Jul 2012 21:09:33
Coventry are looking at two leftbacks andreas ulmer being one one the other one being markus suttner. The two strikers interesting coventry are david connolly and daniel bogdanovic



24 Jul 2012 19:50:42
Cheltenham Town will complete the double signing of goalkeeper Adam Davies and striker Colin Larkin this week.

Adam davies from everton?

Yes. Adam Davies who was released by Everton.

Davies would be good but Larkin is a new name to the rumour mill. He's been around the block so could add some experience but would prefer to see someone younger with energy and pace.



24 Jul 2012 19:31:48
Seb Hines has signed a new 3year deal with Middlesbrough despite interest from Blackburn rovers

Good news on that front also i hear massimo is coming down from blackpool while he is here to talk about to move back to boro after he got a call from gibbo

Would be great to have massimo back we should never have got rid of him. Where did u hear that?

Massimo left Boro with bad taste he'd never come back he hates Boro coz we kept his talent on the bench n if I remember rightly he tried suing us for some reason so I very much doubt this but Blackpool maybe?

I think the legal case you are remembering was by Marco Branca. A finisher of his quality would be good for Boro now.

Was so sad bout Branca, his knee and the aftermath. Those few months he gave us were a joy. The bloke was absolute class.

Aw yeah u right but he did hate being at boro for warming the bench but he did slate us to an Italian newspaper when he left n he was trying to say that our fitness coaches had not time for him n he hated south gate n mclaren



24 Jul 2012 19:32:10
Jay Bothroyd to Leeds United for a £1m fee is to be completed after the takeover has been completed.

With the signing of andy gray i don't see us buying another striker in that mould of Becchio. We need a quick striker i.e. Maynard or DJ Campbell


Heard Maynard is going to leeds as soon as takeover is complete.



24 Jul 2012 18:39:15
Newcastle will make a £7 million move for FC Twente CB Douglas. Spurs and Juventus are also interested in him.



24 Jul 2012 17:45:32
Shrewsbury Town want to sign Liverpool's young striker Nathan Eccleston on loan.

Would be a good one

I've always rated him, would be a good signing

Dowt it



24 Jul 2012 17:51:41
Just seen martin woolford at portishead and spoke to him about the lack of transfer activity at ashton gate and he said that bristol city are locked in negotiations with west ham regarding a deal for sam boldock and the player are has already been down and had a look round and is very keen on a move

Baldock is in germany on tour and owners are in spain



24 Jul 2012 17:30:52
According to reports in home country ghana john mensah may join celtic on a free after being released by lyon



24 Jul 2012 17:29:22
Angelo balanta to return to the dons on another season long loan spell.

Not going to happen. MK Dons have too many Midfielders already and Karl Robinson (MK Manager) didn't think Angelo added anything to the team (which has not been changed since) in his second loan spell there at the start of last season.



24 Jul 2012 17:24:09
Watford are in discussions with Arsenal over the season long loan signing of highly rated youngster Benik Afobe.

This is more believable than the Del Piero rumour anyway



24 Jul 2012 17:11:15
Cheltenham Town are set to sign Reece Styche from Forest Green by Friday

A good Mark Yates signing for me!

Would happily take Styche and Klukowski from FGR but I would imagine the owner is too clever to let them go.



24 Jul 2012 17:09:20
Jon Walters looks likely to leave stoke with Celtic keen to snap up the Ireland international

Let's hope this is true he dont score goals

Not that old chestnut again. TP's lovechild is going nowhere.
He wouldn't want to step down 2 divisions to join anyone in the the Spl.



24 Jul 2012 16:55:01
piennar switch to everton is off! terms cannot be met, qpr are now intrested.

Yobo and Cahill sold to finance the deal. Don't be ridiculous

Pienaar will not sign for any other club!he's the reason that Baines is rejecting the move to old trafford.

Donovan also on the way permanently.

What so you are pienaars stalker are u. How do u know that the only club he will go to is Everton?????

QPR don't need pienaar and he's off to everton anyway. I did hear hughes was interested in donovan though but seems right now bellamys more likely. Also i have it on very good aurthority Hoilett will be announced friday and QPR will only offer blackburn £2 million and take there chance at a tribunaral

Just to add to my above post i've now been told by the same source that both QPR and Fulham are interested in Donovan. But also that QPR won't consider a bid until they can speak to Bellamy after the GB olympics football is over



24 Jul 2012 16:51:39
Liverpool sniffing round west ham's James Tomkins rumours of 4m valuation

Try and start with 15m

May go to 6m tops

15m? get real mate, hes dreadful. he was shockin agenst brazil for team gb....way out of his depth. not liverpool standard in a million years

Don't judge him on one game mate normally a quality player, not to mention being left isolated in that game due to poor tactics and organisation against some of the worlds best forwards..

Just signed a new long term contract and if Henderson is worth £20m JT is worth twice that....

There is no way west ham are gonna sell Tomkins, great player

Replacement for Skertl

12 mill max

Henderson was £16 to be precise



24 Jul 2012 16:44:46
Blackburn have requested Jamie mackie as part of the hoilet deal to qpr. Rovers are also interested in bringing Pacheco from Liverpool or Santa cruz from man city on loan. Both want to stay in the area of north west. Rumour also has it decision on silva will be made by sporting this week and rovers are alo in talks with un named prem club to sign a cb

Blackburn cant request anything, he's a free agent after his contract expired {Ed003's Note - Of course a deal can be done with the buying club before a tribunal}

Hoilett isnt a blackburn player so i say *******!

Why would mackie go to blackburn

Is that the same santa cruz who was touting himself to QPR a few days ago

QPR will have to pay Blackburn 6million if they want to complete the transfer.

Hoilet is a free agent but because he is under 24 there is a fee to be paid. The clubs can agree a fee. Before a tribuneral and that's what bburn are trying to do

It will go to tribunal due to hoiletts age

Money is nothing to a person who is richest man in u.k and Tony aswell. 6 7 8 9 mill, they will pay that.



24 Jul 2012 16:44:13
leeds 1million pound bid rejected for
nicky maynard. any truth in this rumor?
just seen it on a west ham fan site

Maynard has made it clear he going nowhere, it will be january if he goes, baldock out on loan or sold if we recoup what we paid is the likely candidate whu will sell this window

Im sure Maynard didn't even get a game last year for West Ham in the championship so surely he is surplus to requirements in the premier?




24 Jul 2012 16:26:32
simon ramsden to sign for motherwell today



24 Jul 2012 16:25:57
wolves have had a 1.3m euro bid accepted for an un-named defender from a Scandinavia club and is going for a medical on Thursday and the deal may be done by Monday

Who and what club come on!

How can you know the fee and the fact that the club is in scandinavia but not know the club

Espen Rudd is our man

Espen Rudd is a right full back?

Sorry guys my mistake , it's spelt Espen Ruud



24 Jul 2012 16:17:07
West Brom and Sunderland are both interested in Wolfsburg striker Patrick Helmes.

The talented centre-forward has attracted interest from England and Spain with Valencia also eyeing the German International. However Helmes has ruled out a move to Spain and the chairman has insisted Wolfsburg wont be selling the hitman.

Reports suggest that a bid has been knocked back from an English team and are expecting an improved offer.

Likeness of happening: 4/10


He would be a pretty good signing tbh.l



24 Jul 2012 16:12:39
Michael Hector's loan from Reading to Shrewsbury has gone through this morning.

6 month period, probably an option to extend for the rest of the season if it benefits both parties.

Hector is a good signing. Even better, if it is all season.

Havin seen 15 mins in tonight's friendly against birmingham city looks a very ggod young player with alot of potential.
thankyou reading

Yeah Hector is rated highly by us. You've done well to get him....Good for all parties really as he'll gain more experience.

Hopefully he can follow in Gylfi's footsteps. He learned alot from his time at Shrewsbury so it will be a good experience for him and hopefully you will benefit. Plaudits believe he is like a young Rio Ferdinand.




24 Jul 2012 16:07:13
West Bromwich Albion have signed Claudio Yacob on a 3 year contract with an extra year in the players favour.

Confirmed on the club's official site.

If we do it will be to many central mids and someone will go,mulumbo,dorrans,mozza,gera jacob, 5 for three or two places,mad no wonder youth dont get a look in

It's called competition for places and strength in depth! Something that teams that go down do not have!

Gera plays on the side of the midfield not the centre! and yacob is a replacement for scharner!

What a ridiculous statement regarding too many midfielders. In terms of pure central midfielders we have got Mulumbu and now Yacob with Thorne and Allan as younger players in the position. One injury to Mulumbu would've put us in serious trouble as only Dorrans could fill the defensive midfield role.

Mate yacob has replaced scharner mozza can play right or central as can dorrans strength in depth and people who can play in many different positions as with gera he can play right mid or just behind the striker

Why do some albion fans have the mind set that we can't have a set of midfiels that will compete to be in starting 11? its called survival of the fittest! BOING BOING

And Andrews!!

...and Keith Andrews

Its better to have "too many" midfielders because the midfield is the work rate of the team its better to have the so called "too many" because if say 2 players are injured then we have a great back up yacob is taking the place of scharner and andrews so its all good in the world of the baggies at the minute boing boing COYB

After wachting the streamed game,do not release mantom out , the kid looked class, he is serious competition



24 Jul 2012 16:03:24
Freddy adu could be on his way to play in england



24 Jul 2012 15:43:51
Peterborough United are looking into Finnish international midfielder Daniel Sjolund who plays now in Djurgarden FC in the Swedish top flight

Sounds interesting but Fergie has said we're only selling players right now, and he doesn't want anyone over 29, and this guy is 29, nearly 30

Too old at 29! Be very surprised if this happened, as club policy is to sign players who are no more than 25 years of age.

It is actually possibly true, we had a feeder system dismantled through Scandinavia a few years ago, and we have probably missed or failed to agree on a few targets, so perhaps one or two players are still on the radar from that area

It was confirmed last night by the Posh press officer that Grant McCann was staying at Posh, do we need another midfielder in that case?

Has mccann been offerd a new deal

Sounds unlikely then now

There was no mention of a new deal, just staying for the remainder of his current contract

Sjölund is very respected in sweden... His contract is ending and he said to Swedish media that he can continue in DIF but if something exciting comes he can go elsewhere. He is in the Finland's national team (not a very strong team ;-D) but still it indicates something of his quality... I don't think its so impossible, maybe a january transfer? Sjölund used to be some kind of wonderchild when he was in Liverpool and Westham, but then he did a very good career in Sweden. Maybe a last chance now to go elsewhere so I don't see why not!

Because posh DONT sign players that old anymore



24 Jul 2012 15:38:54
West Brom - Claudio Yacob has signed a three year deal(plus one year in the clubs favour)
West Ham seeking to speak to Jonas Ollson
Danny Rose could be a loan signing
Manager still wants a LB, CB and a striker

Why would olsson go to basement boys west ham he said he wanted a title challenge not a relaxation scrap

He said West Ham want to SPEAK to Olsson....Big J did say he wants to play for a London club but he did also say he wants to push for some silverware....move abroad maybe?



24 Jul 2012 15:37:06
Bristol city are in talks with Ricardo fuller

Would love that! TauntonRed

No way! Even if we did sign him he would be way too much for us! I'm glad we didn't sign him

Have BC signed anyone yet as they seem to have spoken to everyone outside the Prem so far! Presume they're spending over £50mill this preseason by the sounds of it.

This is exactly the type of rumour that makes us look daft. No way Fuller will sign for City.

How do you know fuller wont sign for bcfc



24 Jul 2012 15:35:30
Qpr and Sunderland eyeing Pienaar after spurs and Everton talks falter



24 Jul 2012 15:28:15
Middlesbrough are close to signing Carayol and bikey , also Forssell is having a trail at the club.

Bikey has stalled over personal terms so to me if he's not guna budge on the terms he's been offered then look elsewhere cause we need players who wanna play for our club not just a big wage at the end of every week

If all would b good players especially Forsell if fit

If this is mikael Forssell that really don't bother. very average


Your not gunna get Muzzy unless you hand over the 500k rovers are after and mcghee said your nowhere near a deal.

Nicky bailey is apparently a target for norwich and they are going to put a 4m bid in for him this week anybody else seen that article in the mail?

Blessing in disguise if mfc don't get muzzy he's not proven championship material. Good league 2 player but we have better options in reach/park so hope he stays n does well for rovers but don't wanna see him in a boro shirt tbh

Seen no article on bailey but even as a bailey fan I'd snap Norwich hands off if true n we could get another 3 nicky baileys with that n 8 carayols

Can't remember if Bailey on 3 or 4 year deal. If its 3 they maybe offer him an extension or take the 4m. We've got a very small pot so youre right about what that could buy. Shame its not Kevin Thomson though.

Yes I agree with u too I would prefer it to be Thompson but he hasn't played enough to attract any interest at all n the only interest which would get mfc shot of him would be premier league n that's never gonna happen so all we can do is get behind him for the duration n hope he does well..... If mogga sees something in him ill look forward to seeing what that is. In mogga we trust!



24 Jul 2012 15:23:21
Shrewsbury Town are looking to sign West Brom's Saido Berahino on loan , once he returns from a pre-season tour.

This is true, in talks with Shrewsbury, but face competition from Crawley, Doncaster and Stevenage.



24 Jul 2012 15:15:04
Preston have made a bid for a striker that has been turned down according to Peter Ridsdale on the club official website

Who striker player turn down with Preston made bid? {Ed003's Note -Why does a chairman feel the need to announce no news,seems strange to me,clubs usually only announce confirmation of deals? }

I may be wrong (probably), but maybe PR wants to ensure that when there is news he wants to tell us so he can't be deemed as being secretive. I'd rather he did this than no info at all and it can't of been that bad as we would of heard about "Preston's Derisory Bid"(might do on Wednesday). I also think we need to keep things in context both now and in the future. When we were in the championship our crowds were very high teens to low 20's, sometimes, for average league position, ie punching above our weight for years in terms of actual league position compared to crowd income. We can pay bigger wages than Bamber Bridge (but maybe after yesterday we may be signing some of them) but don't expect too much. Just look at Pompy who don't have an Uncle Trev. I know a lot of you don't trust him, but without we may have a new massive Tesco's Extra and PNE New Co playing on Moore Park. I know some will think a Tesco Extra there would be a good thing for all but it could be even worse with a ground share with our new landlords down the 61 Chorley. Give the new bloke a chance and be happy with what we have it's not too long ago we were proper bottom. {Ed003's Note - Surely someone from Preston would know what the park is called...? I smell the sea air? }

Ed-it's because pne are getting very restless with the lack of transfer activity for a striker...the ones we have aren't cutting the mustard and ridsdale is trying to reassure fans that they are trying to do something regarding signing strikers... {Ed003's Note - I realise that but I have never known chairman to do it before,most clubs only ever confirm signings not add to rumours/hear say, I just found it strange}

Ed it's because Peter Ridsdale's as mad as a bag of monkeys.

I have it on good authority that the striker in question is Darius Charles from Stevenage. The hold up in concluding talks has been caused because the player has been in Ireland on a preseason tour.

Its actually moor park you doughnut , the striker is beavon from wycombe 27 goals in 113 apps hardly prolific however compared to the deadly duo of holyroyd and cummins 3 goals in 35 games he looks a world beater . Having said that it would not matter if we had lionel messi in that current team because we create absolutely nothing ever opposing goalie has clean gloves at the end of the game , we need a creative midfielder and a proper striker

Darius Charles is a defender first and a striker second, stop chatting bull everybody knows it's Beavon fom Wycombe

I highly doubt Darius Charles would require a big cash bid, Chris Beardsley was Stevenage top goalscorer last season and he has failed to impress in his trial so doubt we will sign Charles. Im guessing it Stuart Beavon

Chris Iwelumo from Watford is a possible



24 Jul 2012 15:08:33
Striker Rob Hulse to be in a City shirt by the weekend. Off a good source

Manchester city..? lol

I heard it was Rovers or United...

Rohan Ince on loan to Scunthorpe Utd.
Patrick Bamford on loan to Coventry City.
Romelu Lukaku on loan to Anderlecht.

Ince has signed for Yeovil until the new year.


Sorry!! thought Rohan Ince had already signed loan deal with Yeovil...keep up

Palace in talks with Spanish side Recreativo de Huelva to sign 23 year old centre back Manuel Bonaque for £300,000



24 Jul 2012 14:55:49
Cardiff are to sign a striker that played Championship football last season and then got transfered in January and he is now with a Premiership club in the South !

From a Good Source at the Club

I think we'd better call in Poirot or MissMarple to solve this stupid rumour.


No chance your gettin Billy Sharp from saints now jog on.....

Le Fondre ?

Tamas Priskin?

I look for it but didn't see it but if it's true do u no who it might be

It's billy sharp

Who ??

I presume you mean maynard, but he aint leaving whu

No chance of it being sharp, heavily involved in pre season and looking very good. Not a chance


No we anr't the reason miller left was so that bellamy could return. Thats the last striker that we are after

Not the O/P but this in fact is true , the striker is NOT Bellamy , although Bellamy is expected to sign after the Olympics.



24 Jul 2012 14:54:46
Blackburn Rovers set to bring in Scott Agnew



24 Jul 2012 14:45:18
Bristol City have turned down a £1.5m bid from Nottingham Forest for midfielder Cole Skuse.

Skuse has 1 year left on his contract at City and O Driscoll has always been a fan

Reckon there could be some truth in this. Cole has one year left and its been said City will offer him another two on the same deal yethe and his agent both know he could earn a lot more away from Ashton Gate

Seem to remember Donny being after Skuse before when O Driscoll was in charge

Could be some truth in this with the new owners at forest having a bit of money to spend

Skuse will never leave city for an average club. he supports the club and is Bristol born and red. would only go to a club like stoke

As a Forest fan ive always been an admirer of Skuse, always inpressed against us, I'm sure he would go to a club with premiership ambition that are willing to pay him much higher wages than his current club.

He's definatly looking to move this year



24 Jul 2012 14:43:43
Sky Sports News reports that Norwich, along with Fulham and Villa, are after Nice defensive midfielder Kafoumba Coulibaly. The Ivorian wishes to move to the Premier League. And now I wait to see all of the "we don't need another midfielder" posts on here.

We don't need another midfielder

We DO need a defensive midfielder!! Big strong lad to add some beef

We dont need another midfielder

We don't need another midfielder

We do need more mids after all ch wants to make his own side but unlike other clubs we buy before we sell not sell then buy

We do need a mid and def mr.joe said he wants to biuld the def

Our reserve midfield will be awesome this year!

Yes we need a defensive midfielder. Only have Johnson as sole specialist defensive midfielder yet even he isn't stictly speaking a defensive mid as he really more of a box to box player who will score the odd goal or two besides getting his foot on the ball in the first place. If we want the capacity to shut a game down or just more domination of possession we need a true defensive mid. 5-6 million buys some real quality i.e. in the Tiote league (before he was discovered that is) . Many teams play with two defensive mids in any case. If we play 1 up top there is no point playing two wingers and 3 utility midfielders if we can find a quality defensive mid with good passing abilities we create a greater capability for more counter attacking play too besides keeping the goal count down in the first place.

Definitely need some beef in there, a defensive mid to give our centre halfs some reassurance



24 Jul 2012 14:42:13
Almunia expected to sign for Watford in the near future. Has been spotted travelling with Watford team to Cork for a friendly this evening.

Legit. Cork City fan and he's starting tonight.

Didn't play. But yes he's signing.

He was the only unused sub tonight

Seems likely. He was on the bench for the 2-0 win over Cork last night. Should be down to agreeing a contract.

Can't see why he will ot be announced as a signing after appearing as an unused sub against Cork City last night. Been shown as a Watford player on Wikipedia for over a week (but so has Fitz Hall and where is he now?)

Spoke to Almunia at the Cork match last night. Said he wasn't starting as he'd only trained 2 days with theclub. Was involved in the warm up. Nice guy!



24 Jul 2012 14:40:19
Andy Walls previously with Raith Rovers wants to join Kilmarnock. He will have to persuade Sheils to sign one more.



24 Jul 2012 14:27:48
Derby County are planning an audacious bid for greek star Lazaros Christodoulopoulos.

I'm not paying to have that name on a shirt!

I hope so cant see it happening tho. we dont have 4 million to spend :)

Definitely not, Derby have already said that they don't scout internationally at the moment!

I hope not he was looked at by liverpool at prices mentioned in the 2-3 mill mark and he has scored like 12 goals in 62 games for Panathinaikos that aint as gd as theo and he was 300k and the greek league aint as gd as the championship

Clough doesn't scout foreign players its only east midlands. Seems our scouts must have banning orders...:(



24 Jul 2012 14:25:33
Oldham Athletic are preparing a joint 100,000 bid for Nuneaton town duo Delroy Gordon and Danny Newton.

100,000 pence?

We couldn't afford the paper for a £100,000 IOU at the moment



24 Jul 2012 14:22:45
Steven N'Zonzi set for sunderland - 10m
Martin Olsson to Galatasaray - 2m
Simon Vukcevic to Hoffenheim - 2m

Rovers looking at Snodgrass, cox and three trialists

Snodgrass is going to Norwich so Blackburn can look all they like

Nzonzi for 10m .. Next joke he's not worth 3m



24 Jul 2012 14:22:38
leeds to add nicky maynard mcgugan danny rose(season long loan) and buzasky to there promotion chasing squad within in the next week..with snodgrass and mccormack to sign contract extensions aswell

Maynard no, but snoddy signing early next week, and more than likely ross to follow

Maynard rumoured to be in a swap deal for McCormack, all other transfers seem realistic as Danny Rose has been rumoured to return every season & Buzacky is a former QPR.

As for Snoddy & Ross signing new contracts it seems ever more positive for them to sign with the increasing possibility of takeover, the positivity of Warnock & his staff & finally the large influx of quality players with "crucial signings" still to come in.



24 Jul 2012 14:20:43
RVP to complete move to juventus by

They offered 21.5m

There are a couple of exits on the cards at Leyton Orient this week. David Mooney is set to sign for Oxford United, and Ben Chorley is set to sign for Torquay United - both free transfers.

Oxford United are not interested in Mooney whatsoever. This is false

If only this were true. Those two are more than welcome to leave.

Mooney could go out on loan this week, and Colchester are interested.
This will leave the door open for Palace striker Calvin Andrews to rejoin the O's.
Slade faces stiff competition though, from two other Cubs including Notts County. {Ed003's Note -

TQ just signed AAron Downes instead

What do you mean instead? If they played in the same position then I would understand that comment but Downes is a winger and Chorley is a centre half.

Aaron Downes is a CENTRE BACK actually!

My bad! I was thinking of Aidan Downes.

Swindon Town will complete a deal for Tottenhams Bostock and Southamptons Barnard this week.

Sounds plausible

You're never get Barnard he will go to bigger clubs

Will Bostock be perminant ?

Barnard would do well at this level. He was good for saints in league 1 but off field problems and injuries meant he never got a chance last year. Not sure if he'd have fired in the championship but best of luck to him wherever he ends up.

Bostock may well be a perm rather than a loan, Bostock is patiently waiting for the clubs to agree terms, there has been a bit of a delay due to Spur's change of Manager, the other exciting part of this for Swindon fans is that if it is a perm deal then they will move for Sanchez Watt on loan, PDC and the board had already agreed to bring in one loanee with Bostock the player ear-marked so a perm deal for him opens the door for Watt. As for Barnard he is quite keen on a move to Swindon Town who have been showing an interest for quite a while behind the scenes.

He can only go to one club. Can't see any reason why he wouldn't go to Swindon, another ambitious club with a talented manager.

Bostock deal nearly complete Barnard never on the cards for STFC source club employee.

They might get Barnard.

Source about Bostock and possibly Watt? How do you know Barnard is keen to move to Swindon?

Intersting of you have a STFC employee saying only the Bostock rumour is true, I have a similar cintact who claims this is true about all three names mentioned. Bostock has joined the Spurs reserves on a tour of Portugal while the clubs sort out the final details.

Why would STFC be excited about Sanchez Watt? Was not good enough for Crawley so he really aint good enough for Swindon. Di Canio has one or two further signings to make (source - Di Canio), one of which will be a striker (Barnard is a possibility), Bostock is the other but he is currently in Portugal with Spurs

Di Canio keeps on changing his mind on the amount of players he wants, he has now said 1 possibly 2, only because wray said our budget will allow that, these 2 players will be Bostock and a striker like above, if we sell one or two more players this will open up more space for a possible 3rd potential signing

Sanchez watt would be a good addition as left wing or striker cover he scored two goals in a team that went up.

Todays press confirm Swindon have indeed made a bid for Barnard. I also stick with the Watt information. I was right with the Troy Archibald Henville shout when I got the information from a ex Exeter player. I was right with the players that were leaving and where they were going and I was right that PDC has been chasing Barnard behind the scenes (Which I think will be a great signing) despite someone above claiming we were NEVER in for him. I'm telling you if we get Bostock on a perm deal then PDC will move quietly for Watt.

^Wray has said we're not interested in Barnard in local press! So youthink it will be Bostock on a perm then Watt on loan?



24 Jul 2012 12:45:15
charlton athletic to make an enquire about USA striker Freddy Adu.

Terrible player. I was living in Philadelphia and I had a season ticket for the union last year. He was slow, no skill and easily muscled of the ball.

No just no.....

More chance of signing Freddy Starr



24 Jul 2012 12:29:46
Huddersfield Town or Crystal Palace are trying to close in on a deal for Mcormack as Leeds United has just bought a replacement for him (another striker)

If your talking about Andy Gray he's almost 35 years old and is to bulk up the squad and (I'd guess) to cover Somma until he's back from injury.

He is not a replacement for Rossco.

Will choose palace over huddersfield, even Colin said he preferred us out of the offers he had.

He is never joining palace

If your talking about Varney, I imagine he will predominantly be deployed as a winger rather than a striker. Other than that, we have signed Gray as a squad filler. We haven't signed anyone as a replacement for Rosco as of yet.


Mccormack and snodgrass will sign new deals with leeds early next week, someone in the know

Don't you guys at Leeds have Beechio anymore? Did I miss something? Anyway, about McCormack, I'd be a very happy Palace fan if he signed for us, will have to wait and see I guess.

Huddersfield have pulled out of the deal for McCormack as the upfront fee could not be agreed, they have moved onto another yet unnamed striker.

James Vaughan ^^^

Well Blackpool fans looks like southern is set to complete move to Huddersfield well I never. John

Come on Palace fans move on McCormack is not signing for us......the world and its mother knows we need a striker so lets see what transpire over the coming weeks

Wow andy gray signs shows the intentions you have for promotion.

Think you need to find someone else "in the know", snodgrass is heading for the exit

CP are already looking at other strikers to bring in. Eg french striker Allart is already on a trial, so if the RM saga eventually doesnt work out I am sure that CP will in any case have better attacking options by the start of the season

One true. Already but hope. We get a good Striker that will be a concistent goal scorer like Jordan Rhodes
from Ronan htfc fan.

Someone in the know. Predicted snodgrass signing new deal at leeds after he had signed for norwich?



24 Jul 2012 12:22:12
What happened to all the rumours
about Dorian Dervite signing for
I have heard Huddersfield looking to
Keith Southern from Blackpool and Lee
Barnard from Southampton.

Lee Barnard would be a good signing, great player on his day - just not good enough for the prem.

Saint Gumbo

Seems like it's dead in the water that one. Never heard anything from town about it either.

Huddersfield have pulled out of the deal for McCormack as the upfront fee could not be agreed, they have moved onto another yet unnamed striker.

I've heard that Barnard is not the only player from Southampton moving to Huddersfield there is the possibility of Dickson and Hammond making a move as well.

Hammond is a defo no, all players that went on tour are staying, the only reason forecast went was because he was our only other gk at the time

Heard from a friend at skysports news that Norwich are looking to spend 14million on a new striker....pretty reliable source as he told me about houghton and holts new contract a day or two before both happened! Watch this space!

As a Norwich fan I can say this won't happen. We don't have that amount to spend on one player. Especially when the writer can't spell the manager's name correctly...

14 mil? or was the 1 a mistake? 4 mil is much more believable!

Wow, thats a pretty bold statement and a slightly odd one. Do you mean that we have 14 million set aside for a striker, or we have been quoted 14 million for a particular striker and we are willing to pay that much? Both scenarios seem unlikely to me, but im willing to be proven wrong as it would be a massive statement of intent should it be spent on someone worth that money. Must also mean with have plenty to spend.

Or it could be a load of rubbish.....

Maybe 14m to spend in the window, but not on 1 player

It's Steven Fletcher from Wolves.

We have not got the budget to spend 14M on one player.

Total rubbish,they wont spend that on one player,thats there whole budget.

I hope we don't waste all of our budget on one player. And anyone can say they have a mate that has inside knowledge after it's happened. I think the Holt contract was a shock to everyone.

Can't see Norwich spending most of their transfer budget on a single player.

14million!!!! is your source drunk?

14 million, with the agent fees and all that comes with it for the free signings, that's all our money gone for the season! Not seeing it myself, could be wrong though.

Which would blow most of our money while he still has areas to improve? I think not.

I'm a massive Norwich fan but this will NEVER happen in my lifetime!

14m is not our whole budget for the season, but it may be so for the summer.
we have an estimated 25m for the entire season, with 8-10 to be saved for the winter most likely.
spent 1m on butterfield already, and apparently 4-5m for snoddy if it gets accepted. that only leaves about 9-12m for the summer

Not a chance. can tell you that for fact. we are clearing our debts this season so we simply do not have the budget for this! daft to even think about it. 14mill is about our total trasnfer budget for both transfer windows.

Lol funny fletch will be captain next year fact

Consider the record transfer we spent was roughly what....£3.75 mill, doubt we'd quadruple that on one lad

I think whoever posted this has been on the sauce let alone quoting one :-)

Andy Carroll anyone???

Think you missed the . out, more like £1.4m. Firstly we couldn't afford £14m, plus we couldn't afford the wages that go with that price tag. OTBC

I think a lot of Norwich fans are thinking way too big about their budget. I would be surprised if they spent over £10m in a window, let alone on a single player

Surely paying that much for someone will mean they will want big wages.... which we cant afford!!

We spent what, 12m in the jan window last season?

Yeah put Paul Lambert knew what he was doing and he got us a top 15 finish, what more can you ask for?

A top 10 finish maybe?

Stoke City looking at PSV winger/striker Jeremain Lens. The young 24 year old has a mixed record, but could be a huge hit in the UK with his ruthless approach to football.

Stoke are also intrested in N'zonzi and Ollson but funds will have to be made through the sale of Kenwyn Jones, Danny Collins and Matthew Upson. The only striker that will be arriving is Michale Owen because Stoke are relucttant to spend large amounts of money this year. And are looking to balance there books

Southampton are on the verge of signing lens flew over to England today and is currently having a medical after fee agreed 10m euros. Also this info is circulating in Holland.

Stoke are trying do it on the cheap .lets face it that team with have now going of the last half of the season would of finished bottom with the lowest attacking stats in all divisions if coats thinks he don't need spend money on bringing in better players then the likes of wilko Whelen whitehead Walters Wilson to name a few he could find himself in a lot of trouble this season .u don't get qualities players for nothing they come with a price

Stoke are one of a few clubs in the premier league thats books already balance nicely, their strict wage cap, and tv money / fa cup final / euro run has ensured they have money to spend if they wish, its more a case of moving dead wood on for them than actuall needing to sell before they buy for financial reasons,
£40 million a year for tv rights,
sell out every at home
mega shirt sales etc and only spent an averege of £20 million a the math :)

I don't think we've seen the best of Cameron jerome. Plus we won't have the strain of Europa league. I don't think we need to spend big. Def got to sell
some dead wood like jones. Sad to see Walters go.

"strain of the Europa league"? LoL!

We have yet to see wilson palacios as well

Travelling to Croatia, Ukraine, Turkey and Israel was a undoubtable strain on Stoke, especially when all of their following league fixtures were away matches.

Numerous sources are claiming watford are close to agreeing a two year deal with Alessandro Del piero. It's rumoured Del piero will not break watford's tight budget structure, but match the highest earner on 10,000 a week and recieve a significant signing on fee, alongside many bonuses in his contract such as promotion with watford.

Until it's official I just can't believe this one. Would be our biggest ever signing for sure, absolute legend.

Numerous sources such as?

What sources would that be?

What sources? would love this to be true

Really...... Or he could go the China or America and play for £100,000 a week.


Jesus, that's funny! Del Piero may be coming to the Vic but it won't Alex it'll be Tony the hairdresser from North Watford!

Nope. Bruno Cazarine and Ricky Pinheiro

Bruno Cazarine and Ricky Pinheiro

The Brazilian Striker is Bruno Cazarine. Don't you read? They have an experienced Brazilian sriker on trial. Weller Pereira is 23 and hasn't had enough experience to be considered experienced...Cazarine is 29 and has more experience as he's played for 10 different clubs in his playing career...

And on a seperate note, our local paper has even said they're pretty sure its Cazarine. Please check the information already available before you start typing...

Hes dreadful and would be a big mistake.

WHY WHY WHY His goal scoring ratio is dreadful.


An earlier post referred to Lloyd Sam.

He's rubbish he been off the footballing radar for 2 years in the Caribbean, and used to play for notts county when they were in league 2. Why is he trailing with us?

Why would Wolves part if he is that good?.

From every wolves fan: i hope your right his woeful

Wolves have confirmed there has been no contract from any clubs regarding Big George.

Lol come and take him...sorry to see adlene go but big george you are very welcome

Elokobi has said he wants to stay at wolves to fight for his place, so i cant see this happening.

Norris is off to Wednesday, not us. Wouldn't say no to Halford though!


Trouble being is that Kits wants his money before he quits.

Where has kitson said that then?

He'll be waiting a while then!

Is there any truth in the reports linking Middlesbrough with Matt Derbyshire from forest?

There was reports bout a week ago in the eg but nothing since but a lot of talk of Harry kewell recently but I personally hope not.... Not a patch on what he used to be

Oh jees lets hope so. Awful and on high wages! Ill drive him north myself.

All I can say is
Derbyshire is rubbish and with high wages
Plus Jutkiewicz Enmes Main and Ledesma
Possibly McDonald if he doesn't get sold is fine up front it's midfield flair that we lack

Brentford set to miss out on the loan signing of Jake Bidwell as he is about to sign for Crystal Palace on a permanent two year deal.

The DJ Campbell deal is still a possibility, but Campbell wants to wait to see if there is any Championship interest first.

Nonsense about Bidwell to Palace. We have 3 good left backs in Parr, Moxey and Parsons and certainly would not be only offering a two year deal to a 19 yr old

Bidwell just signed contract extension at everton

Bidwell is going on a season long loan to Brentford.

If bidwall sighning for everton gud luck him top plyer brentford fan. ithoght moyes be mad to let him go again

Bidwell to sign as backup for tony craig

DJ going to Watford

Bidwell won't be back up to Craig lol. Craig will play in the center with Bidwell left back.

Bidwell is miles better than tony craig! doubt we will re-sign bidwell though :(



24 Jul 2012 10:11:18
Charlton boss Chris Powell is hoping to hi-jack Burnley's move for Sam Vokes. Burnley are waiting on Steven Fletcher's transfer to Sunderland, as they will be using the sell-on fee they'll receive to fund the deal. However Charlton are willing to pay the £500k now to secure the services of Vokes and Wolves might find that more appealing then waiting on Fletcher's transfer, which is still not a definite.

This is true - I am a Burnley fan and the penny-pinching attitude of the BFC board of directors will see us lose out on Vokes. We got £7 million for Rodriguez but the directors will not even give Eddie Howe the money for a desperately-needed experienced midfielder. Hence, they are trying to get an inexperienced PL youngster on loan.

On the other hand the player may not want to come down to London, not everyone one does you know!

/ / / May not want to "come" to London! So you're a worried Millwall or Palace fan then. This has legs and I know for a fact that Wolves prefer Charlton's bid as stated by the OP above. It's down to the player now as Burnley are dithering over wages. Does anyone know where the £7m for Rodriguez went?

Glenn Murray and gus poet were seen leaving the Amex early this morning. A source inside the Albion has suggested that Glenn wants a return to the south coast side after a bench ridden season for palace.

The same Gus Poyet that's in Spain right now?

Ha ha! Who is Gus Poet? If you mean Poyet, he is in Spain with the 1st team squad. Could have been Murray though, I think BHA are recruiting for a few extra cleaners for when Palace visit this season!

That's funny Gus and the team are in Spain.

Since Poyet's in Spain with the Brighton squad this rumour won't 'fly'.
Try again

Rumours linking Michael Owen with a move to Bolton are wide of the mark. Meanwhile Carlos Samchez is set for talks with Owen Coyle

Source?? Haven't heard a thing about Carlos Sanchez since about 9th July on Sky Sports

Coyle hasn't spoken to Carlos Sanchez, and whilst the door is still open to ressurect a move, it looks unlikely. Source: Bolton News

This would be ashame if we don't get him we need a tough no nonse centre mid. It looks like Cisse is not as good as people make out he is or does he want too much money.

Southampton Are off loading 3 more players including Barnard.
Expect Swindon to make a move for him this week along with a loan deal for Tottenham's John Bostock.

Source? About Bostock and Barnard?

Lee Barnard looks to be heading out but the others must be players like Dickson and Seaborne right? And for that matter Forte has to be gone soon as well right?

Swindon have been chasin Bostock since his loan move there last season, JB has made it clear he is patiently waiting for the clubs to sort out if it is loan or perm..if a perm then expect STFC to move for Sanchez Watt on loan. PDC has been interested in Barnard for a while behind the scenes, the news that Southampton are now off loading him could well set the wheels in motion.

Tadanari lee was involved in the warm-up at carouge last week. He is getting back to fitness, but expect another few weeks still.. Redandwhitedee

Wimbledon linked with Cheltenhams Scott Brown with a deal including Seb Brown

Ha ha he's just signed a new deal two year and turned down Plymouth and torquay.

Seeing as he has just signed a new contract i dont think so.

Scott Brown signed a new two year contract. No chance.

One S. Brown for another? Cheltenham would have to pay a substantial fee to get Seb.

Seems a little unusual that two clubs would swap S. Browns like for like: that means they both think their current S. Brown is inferior surely?



24 Jul 2012 08:31:21
Derek Niven, Colin Larkin and Mustafa Tiryaki are all transfer targets for Cheltenham Town

He signed a 4 year contract for 1461 Trabzon in June 2012, so there's no truth in this rumour whatsoever.

Notts County

Lee Hughes - Cheltenham, Season Loan
Krystian Pearce - Derby £250k

Hogan Ephraim QPR Season Loan, winger
Billy Paynter - Leeds Season Loan, striker
James Hurst WBA Season Loan, full back
Craig Beattie Free, 2 year deal, striker

With possibly one of the young keepers going out on loan, and maybe a young centre half to replace Pearce,
that will be the end of the dealings for the summer,

I would love Beattie but I doubt we will be able to get him

You don't want billy Paynter had him at Brighton last season complete donkey

I doubt very much that Notts will be taking Billy Paynter on loan as Leeds want to sell him to free up wages. Unless Notts are going to be paying the majority of Billys wages then I doubt it will happen

Lloyd sam?
luke rodgers?

both on trial with pompey who wont be a club for much longer, so come to a place where they did well

Not sure about craig beattie, he has been training with rangers and has offers from overseas

Hope not, look at beatties goal scoring record, shocking, paynters isnt that great too. Hughes is class

Ephraim is to good for them, will go to a good championship side if anything.

Craig Beattie is training with Newco Rangers.

Derby have no money after splashing £1 million on the coventry defender

Why are we always linked with this Pearce fella? Would County fans be sad to see him go?

Peirce has had a hernia operation and isn't currently fit, can't see anything happening there

Derby do have money.

we spent 800k + clauses on keogh
we are getting 350k for varney
james bailey is to be sold

we also have the possibility of steve davies leaving.Alot of the players wages that left such as paul green were changed into transfer funds from 8k a week to 400k.

derby only need 3 more

cb cover

Shane Ferguson
Krystian Pearce
?(Depending on Steve davies leaving)

Derby have no money?

The whole point their captian was sold so they can get 3-4 players form that money.

Both the shackell sale and keogh buy were undisclosed none are what the papers suggest

Derby don't get anything for Luke Varney. Free transfer to Leeds wiping out any sell on clause.

We NEED to keep Hughesy if we let him go it's one of the worst decisions the club have ever made. COUNTY LEGEND!

Huddersfield looking to tie up a double
loan moves for sunderlands Connor
Whickham and liverpools raheem sterling after
there clubs return from pre-season
tours. {Ed001's Note - players have to be 18 now to go out on loan from the Prem, Sterling is not able to be loaned until Jan.}

No chance.ipswich have first option on Connor going on loan.......part of the transfer deal to Sunderland

Ed the player has to be 17 at the youngest and have a Pro. deal. i.e. caulker at yeovil {Ed001's Note - I believe the rules have been changed recently, and now they have to be 18, which is why Sterling didn't go out on loan last January, when he was 17.}

The loan involving CW is dependant on Rhodes signing a perm deal at SAFC

I thought they just had to be on a professional contract {Ed001's Note - used to be that way, but they made changes before last season and I believe that was one of them.}

Players under 18 can go on 'work experience' deals

How do you know that ipswich havent been approached and decided against a loan deal? raheem sterling was rumour to have agreed a loan deal with huddersfield back in jan but because of the rules the move got blocked but he is ok to go out on loan from this summer onwards {Ed003's Note - He can go on loan next January,I think the youth experience loans were scrapped in the rule changes,that would need checking though}

Why on earth would Ipswich turn down a loan deal for Connor......answer they would not, he was class for itfc and any Ipswich fan or management would jump at the chance to have him back

Chris Burke of Birmingham City is agreeing contract details with Cardiff City after a fee of £1.8m was accepted by Birmingham due to a clause in his contract.
Kim Bo-Kyung to sign officially on Wednesday.

Not a chance

I hope this is true he will be class on the wing

Burkie loved cardiff this is the team to watch this season and burkie can see it.

If he was our second top goalscorer with 14 goals had the most assists in the championship with 18 and got the players player, fans player and juniors player of the season i doubt we would basically give him away for 1.8 million.

What a silly rumour. Birmingham dont want to sell and the player doesnt want to leave. He left Cardiff for Birmingham and in that time Cardiff have got worse... why would he go back :S

Why take a step backwards,this guy could play in prem,any day of the week.

But you gave Mutch away

Love the fact you say cardiff have gotten worse, i mean we just had a huge cash injection from our investors and have already made a good few signings plus chris burke's best part of his career was for cardiff. I can see birmingham finishing mid table this year and i think chris burke can too

Burke back 2 cardiff would be a decent signing, was gutted when he left last time, but he jumped ship thinking cardiff's future was bleak!

"Cardiff have got worse" loving that, they only have a cash injection of £100m and thats supposed a "step backwards. Im affaid up Brum that we are a Big Promotion threat this year we have done the play offs with a thin Squad and with a 13m transfer budget a New Stadium, a extention to the already mint Vale resort thats why burkey would want to come back !! And ohh yeah you have no money !!!!! {Ed003's Note - I just love modesty}

Same ed I hate fellow fans who act like this the table will tell whos right.
Why get Burke back 28 going on 29 hes getting on and if we follow this policy why not get chopra and bothroyd whilst were at it?

David James who is currently training with Exeter is set to join Bristol Rovers on a 6 month month deal. James is reportabley singing on a 4k a week deal

Surely Exeter are not going to pay him £4k per week??

I believe he means that he is training pre season with exeter and will instead do the dirty and sign for the gas.

Rovers cant either - if they do its the slippery slope to administration!

This is a lie that's loosely based off a thread on the Bristol Rovers forum. 100% not true.

the Brazilian striker on trial at Coventry is former Middlesbrough striker Afonso Alves
age 31 scored 10 times for them

Might be wrong but is he not at some saudia arabian club, probably earning 40-50k a week? Not gonna join a league 1 team trying to cut the wage bill is he

Is that good news or bad news? I'm not sure

If this is true I would be so happy! Rate this guy a lot

He is out of contract there and how would you no about his wages not all players who play there are on decent wedge!

Brazilians usually play with confidence and style, known for their swagger and enigmatic presence. Alves has none of these. Good luck if you take him on. You'd have to wade through a load of Boro fans to find anyone who 'rated' him. Buying him was a large coffin nail. You're not in a position to gamble with him

He is shown as a free agent on wikipedia, but looks as though coming back from a long term injury, could be a gamble worth taking though?

Alves was poorly handled at Boro. He knew where the back of the net was but his confidence was low. If he is fit and motivated he would be a great signing for anyone!

I doubt it...some say it's Bruno Cazerine...used to play for Sydney FC who are known as the Sky Blues. He'd be a more realistic player as Alves is a very high wage earner...

Apparently it's Bruno Cazarine, who play's for Sydney FC aka The Sky Blues.

Awful striker, coventry will find out this league isnt easy especially with players like him - coming from a preston fan

Coming from a boro fan, he was rubbish for us but league one is probably on par with the Dutch league where his goal record was unbelievable, probably worth taking a gamble if hes not asking too much wages, he was on over 50k at boro so id of thought he would be around the same in saudi

Basically more rubbish then

Poorly handled at BORO, nonsense,he was training at one of the best training facilities in the country and had top coaches,only person who let Alves down was himself,very poor player,no fight,no skill, couldnt handle the pressure, forsell,Derbyshire transfer talk has no truth in it.

Alves was the gamble boro took while in the prem 12.5 mil on dross..... Look where we are now. If Alves put half them balls into the open goals he missed we wouldn't have come down we played good football all over the park but the only striker who could finish in our team was tuncay
