Liverpool will recieve £6m from AC Milan for the permanent transfer of Alberto Aquilani after this weekend should Aquilani appear against his former club AS Roma. Aquilani has a clause in his loan contract which states Milan must make a £6m permanent transfer once the player makes 25 appearences and Alberto has now made 24. Daglish and Comolli are keen to make Blackburn's David Hoilett their first summer signing. The 21-year old Canadian will be a free agent this summer. Liverpool and Tottenham are the two front runners for his signature, Bayern Munich are also interested but Hoilett would prefer to stay in England.(18)(5)He will prefer spurs ! Wouldn't be a step up joiningliverpool .

Much loveArsenal more interested than any othersChrist. NOBODY CARES ABOUT LIVERPOOL. You're a Europe League (at best) side now and your club and manager have lost the respect of the football world this season. Why the hell would Hoilett even consider Liverpool? Spurs are a lot better and are gonna need someone to replace Bale. Sorry Spurs fans, he's off in the summer.

Love from,

A very good source.^^ Europa league is the minimum for Liverpool as they won the Carling cupI think that person was saying Liverpool are only good enough for a Europa League spot in the league these days. Hard to disagree, Kenny has ruined them.

James Milner,
Lloyd Isgrove (Southampton, Age 18)
Kaka (Season loan)

Chamaka loan,
Frimpong loan,
Denilson,(8)(64)And ronaldo, Cassilas and Ramos aswellLol, i doubt you'll take lloyd isgrove off us. He's a good player yes, but we have much better in the academy, i.e Luke Shaw, and even him you've been told where to go. I doubt you'll be getting any more youth off us for a while. Sorry wenger, no more little boysIf that sums up all "Ins" I think you need to add RVP to the "Outs"!Arsenal are up to third and suddenly they think wenger is gonna drop a bucket load of cash and wages on players?!? jog on sonBenzema? Kaka? Milner? Srsly mate Wenger will never splash the cash given that they're 3rd now, plus these players' respective clubs wouldn't let them go i think

Mick McCarthy is set to fulfill his childhood dream this summer by taking over at his hometown club Barnsley. They have not progressed as expected under Keith Hill and see MM as the man to bring the Premier League back to Oakwell. The only slight spanner in this is that the BBC want MM to be there main analyst on there Olympic football coverage and i believe that MM would like to do both things if at all possible.(10)(24)Dont talk tripe !! can`t see macca coming home to work for peanuts, even if he belongs here .You dont want him he is useless


23 Mar 2012 07:45:26

Southampton are still scouting the three young Italians.
But added to that list they have been scouting three old boys. Rumours have it - it's Martin Craine, Andrew Surman and Dexter Blackstock.
They also seem to be gearing up to make further bids on Gary Hooper and Jay Rodriguez.
There is also a Unnamed CB they are scouting as well.
This is all being prepared in readiness for making it into the Premier League.(10)(12)Who is the 3 young italiansWhilst the Hooper interest can be anticipated I believe the other interests are very wide of the mark.
I would have thought recent history would have shown that signings by Saints will be kept behind closed doors until the deals are done, so most rumours will be pure speculation.
Suggest we just trust the management to land the right type of players-they have been pretty successful so far, but most of the signings have been a complete surprise to the fans (apart from Sharpe who was expected to sign for all clubs in the Championship before the close of the window) and I expect it will stay that way.Hoopers going no where so forget that 1...he will be playing champions league footy next season so fighting relagationIn your dreams surman is happy were he is. If he leaves norwich it wont be to southampton.If your going to post playground rumours, please make them original. No more to add to the 2nd reply.Hooper is out of conract in the summer, but will go bigger.Martin Craine maybe.Surman is happy at Norwich as is Blackstock.Jay Rodriguez in your dreams.Who the unnamed Centre Back.This was so stupid of a post if you want to post at least make it believeable.I dont think Surman would leave Norwich i agree, but Southampton have probably the best chance of getting him if he did, he enjoyed his time here and didnt want to leave but had to. Get your facts right, norwich fans are unbelievable.

As to the others, i think most are untrue. Blackstock is no where near what we need, if we get another ST, which seems unlikely, it would be someone that is sitting around lower prem, or a young gun. CB is likely, as is some young players. Would be interested to hear who they were? Is this coming from the same source that said Mattia Destro would come to England? (I wish lol )Further to the original statement a rumour has started that if Saints make it back to the Premier League, they will make two audacious key signings before the start of next season. the players involved are former Saints players. Watch this space.Heard this too,Paine and Channon maybe?Just to throw in a few observations, Southampton did at one time have to sell stars of the future because of their finacial situation. That's all changed now and some of those stars would jump at the opertunity to return to the club that started them of in their careers. So the players named list above isn't that unbelievable. If Southampton could get back the likes of Bale, Walcott and Oxlade the premier league would be over before it started. So just think what might happen for the time being.Must be Bale and Oxlade Chamberlin then!


22 Mar 2012 16:31:13
Bristol are close to signing Hogan Ephraim from QPR on loan(11)(3)Were called bristol city,


22 Mar 2012 16:29:00
Gavin Mahon could be heading back to watford at the end of the season i hope it does happen i loved him at vicarage road(6)(9)Are you serious? He couldn't pass wind! Apart form one good goal against Pompey he was cack.Can we have him back at hereford


22 Mar 2012 16:18:22
John Bostock of Tottenham going on loan to Swindon until the end of the season!! This man has loads of potential....great signing for the Reds if it comes off!!(13)(2)Potential that he has totally wasted so far?
He was meant to be the next big thing when he joined Spurs, but now he is spending time in League Two?!Not being funny but he couldn't cut in league 1 with SWFCHe had potential when he was 15 and broke into the palace squad. then he sat in the reserves for 2 seasons, went down to league on and was uninspirational had a decent run in the championship. the guy ruined his career for a quick buck and as a palace fan I'm glad he has amounted to nothing


22 Mar 2012 13:31:03
Marlon Pack said to be at the C G today in talks over a possible loan then permanent deal with Mehdi Kerrouche going to Cheltenham plus cash in exchange(5)(8)He was rubbish on loan at wednesday probs be same 4 ur lot his attitude is a problem also

Sam Allardyce has been told by G&S that he has 5 games to save his WHU career because past results are simply not good enough. WHU Board have already started sounding out a
replacement for end this and beginning
for next season with Paolo Di Canio
on the short list(23)(21)HAHA! nice try, Big Sam has the backing of the board. ANd PDC WILL manage West Ham one day...but not yet...He is learning and will take swindon up this season and will challenge for a promotion again next year. Everything is in place for Swindon Town to become established in the Championship, then...when the job is available...he will return 'home' to West Ham.Big Sam is a EPL Manager.
West Ham are just not good enough!
That is the true story. {Ed001's Note - West Ham have the best squad in the Championship, the problem is that they are football players, not hoof it long and kick anything that moves merchants. Allardyce needs 11 big brutal lumps to make his 'style' of play work. What says it all to me is that his proudest achievement at Bolton was working on Kevin Davies so he could jump an inch or two higher to get the ball when it was hoofed up to him.}Thats a shame, (to the reply). Big Sam is a joke, no idea of what football is, and has got the team acting like they are all taking penalty kicks in rugby. Poor form, poor tactics, great team. So obviously the link that is weak is that fatty in charge


22 Mar 2012 10:24:16
Redknapp - England manager
Modric - Man U
Adebayor - Will depart as unaffordable
Bassong - to depart permanently(14)(25)If modric goes and its a very big if? It will depend on who the next manager is? levy will not sell to manchester united or any other english team unless they go way above the £42 million chelsea were offering!I don't think Redknapp will manage England full time but I can't the 3 players leaving at the start of next season. What you reckon of Suarez jumping boat?I don't think currently United have the kind of money it would take to get Modric to afford on one player even if Levy was prepared to sell. If Spurs do miss out on CL Modric could well agitate for a move but very few clubs could afford the kind of price Levy would demand and United with their huge debts to be financed don't appear to be one


22 Mar 2012 10:24:05
walsall to offer a contract to a wilbraham of norwich as he is out of contract in summer(7)(8)


22 Mar 2012 10:18:27
Leicester city to bid for Sak Whitbread, back for needs strengthening and he has the Quality that Pearson wants. Expect bamba to leave with tunchev. Bamba is a suprise but Pearson doesn't like his take on the world attitude, he is a class defender though! Bad move!(3)(16)Not sak you wally its zak.I know I miss/typed! Lol!Lambert's favourite CB? good luck mate.


22 Mar 2012 09:32:54
A rumour is going round that Steve Fletcher might be going to Plymouth on loan.(15)(13)He has been sidelined for some time not even appearing on the bench. With his playing career unlikely to go beyond next season he needs to be involved and even substitute appearances at Plymouth would be better than nothing. Ridiculous that Bournemouth are not using his experience!Guys, he means Steve Fletcher of Bournemouth not WolvesRound and round in your head.


22 Mar 2012 09:26:53
The Times are rumoured to be reporting tomorrow morning that robinho is on his way for a loan deal!! Thoughts?(2)(10)On his way where?

22 Mar 2012 07:45:41
liverpool won't sign any world beaters were destined for europa league football this year by no means is this season a failure a cup maybe 2 fingers crossed and weve guranteed a shot at the europa league and we should let the youngsters blossom i.e sterling suso and so on its gave martin kelly the drive and game time to break the first team anyway onto signings junior hoillett who can play as a right or left winger and possibly a centre back to toughen up the back 4 they'll be a lot of players leaving fabio aurelio ,doni ,joe cole and aqualani and just youngsters who won't make the grade at htis club(9)(13)Liverpool have spent 113m to win the carling cup this season but are still way off the pace for a top 4 place which was proven with last nights result at QPR. The club will not go forward with Dalglish throwing excessive money at very average players eg Carroll,Henderson,Adam,Downing.Every transfer people list all these players supposedly leaving Liverpool - you need someone to buy them!

You can't just decide you don't like players and ditch them - there has to be another club willing to pay a transfer fee and a salary for these players!Not a failure, miles off the pace paid stupid money for average players!
100m to win league cup is not a good investment.


22 Mar 2012 05:53:55
Norwich City will be looking to South Korea in the summer transfer window as they aim to sign
FC Seoul and Montenegerin International Striker
Dejan Damjanovic as they have been impressed from what they have seen of the forward

Earlier in the year FC Seoul rejected a £5m bid from Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande for the player(3)(12)

Bournemouth have also expressed an interest in Chesterfield goalkeeper Tommy Lee after pressure from the Dean Court faithful to sign a new keeper.(1)(6)


21 Mar 2012 22:10:16
Norwich City defender Russell Martin, 26, insists speculation regarding himself, 25 year old Andrew Surman, Anthony Pilkington, 23 and captain Grant Holt, 30, will not result in a mass exodus at Carrow Road.(5)(10)Unlikely seeing all have long term contracts and will not move unless unrealistic offers and interest in them will not be forthcoming since all dropped off in form. Rangers bid of £500k for Grant H before they went bust was laughable £2m for the 30 year old might just interest.Yer it will£2m very funny£2,000 000 for Club and Team Captain who has scored double figures in his first season in the EPL. Okaaay


21 Mar 2012 22:09:39

Miles Addison set to sign perminately for the Cherries after a successful loan spell.(8)(5)


21 Mar 2012 20:36:15
billy sharp to joint ipswich on loan(6)(26)Why would he do that? No benefit to him or Saints, only to Ipswich. He is in the Saints 16 for every recent match and a loan move would bring the chance of injury with no benefit whatsoever.
Rubbish rumour.Where the hell did you dig this one up from, if Billy went anywhere it would probably be back to Donny, although he like's Ipswich he wont come here as he's proved when he was approached in the transfer windowDon't be stupid...with Connolly injured (frequently i may add), Barnard not getting a berth, and with Tadanari nursing an ankle really think we would give away a £2mil signing that is still looking to make an impression. Its been a tough year for Billy, and im sure wherever he went it would take a while to settle in, especally with a team that is high flying. Either way, don't see him leaving when he's close to first starting 11This rumour may have been accurate back in the summer when we went in for him but its long dead now he's at saints


21 Mar 2012 20:43:32

Dougie Freedman is chasing out of contract ex-Chelsea midfielder Jacob Mellis.(16)(5)He's training with BurnleyNot out of contract, it was terminatedSurely if he no longer has a contract with chelsea weather its expired or been terminated he is still out of contract? Being a bit pedantic I think


21 Mar 2012 07:55:26
