Ed. Any Leicester rumours? {Ed013's Note - Just the Marshall rumour, but someone tells me that Sheff Wed have an offer in for him}(1)(7)He has gone to LeicesterNo he hasn't. There are three sides in for him including Leicester, nothing has been decided yet.Marshall will stay at Cardiff coming from at Reading fanCardiff? This is Ben Marshall of Stoke! As I write this the latest was. Stoke are offering a new contract as his present one runs out in the summer. Rumour is he won't take it as he wants regular football. Sheff Wed have made an offer. Leicester have made an offer. Sheff Utd are rumoured to have made an offer but I haven't seen any actual evidence of a bid from them. Rumour is it's either stay with Stoke and get irregular Prem football or go to Leicester and play regularly if he performs. Decision very shortly. This written on Thu 26th JanNo, he's just being greedy.He could sign the 3 1/2year deal Stoke are offering him and then get regular football by going out on loan. It's him and his agent who want too much.Players and agents are always going to want the best deal for them and not what we, as fans, might think they're worth. At this stage of his career I'm not sure that staying at Stoke contractually but going on another loan would suit the club or the player other than he seems to be upping his transfer value when Stoke do decide to sell.Agreed.I think the best option,for Stoke,is to let him go.


25 Jan 2012 21:52:44
Keith Andrews to Ipswich once his Blackburn contract is terminated(10)(11)LeedsWho did he pick last time......But look where you are now!True, but Ipswich are far more likely to pay the wages of an ex premier player who is starting to age... Look at Bullard and Bowyer.... That's probably why Ipswich are where they are... Leeds prefer cheap trial players and players on loan. Let's face facts, most players don t prefer one club or another, they go where the money is.He has at least 4/5 clubs after him,there will be better options than ipswich town,thats a fact


25 Jan 2012 21:51:53
Jason Roberts is very close to signing a loan deal at Reading(21)(5)


25 Jan 2012 21:43:31
Nicky Maynard just been spotted coming out of Leicester City King Power stadium looking as if he has just signed a lucrative contract.(7)(28)How can someone LOOk like they've just signed a lucrative contract?I love that ''lucrative contact '' face it's my personal favourite .... #BadRumourSorryI was thinking that tooBig grin, pen in hand, Cash hanging out of his pockets probably.Its a wind up as if pearson wud even botherDREAM ONWe genuinly DONT need him!I love how some people think that Pearson will automatically chase Sven's former targets. We could do with a Striker seeing as we have three out injured, but Maynard won't be coming in, i'd bet someone else's mortgage on that.Didn't someone put the exact same comment on here in the summer - bit of deja vu going on here!I love the 'I just signed a lucrative contract ' look that folk put on.

By the way he isn't anywhere near Leicester if you must know......not that anyone believed you anyway :-)


25 Jan 2012 21:41:50
Kayal of Celtic to southhampton for 3mil(4)(38)Out for season and worth at least double!Pick a better wind up, Kayal out for seasonInjured for the season and worth in excess of 10 mill, Southampton are a carp side and have no chance of buying Hooper or any other Celtic player for that matter, as its a step backwardsHe'll be able to link up with his old clubmate Gary Hooper who is "definately joining Southampton".

Southampton really do need some decent players though. The team that played Leicester the other night was barely Championship class let alone the Premiership class outfit which they would have you believe they are.Is he gonna hobble down there on his crutches.
Who is writting this stuff? Lee McCulloch?Out injured for rest of season and worth double which Southampton could but wouldn't pay!!.......there will be no room left in Southampton squad with all these players their signing...... Oh wait.... They can't actually get any deals done!Glad to see Southampton love Celtic more than Rangers. Hooiveld was a good signing for yous, could hardly get a reserve game at Celtic though.Kayal, what a player!I heard it was 2 million and Wanyama and izzy is included in the deal lol

Only fact is Southampton will be very lucky to get a play off place after their game the other night.Kayals out for the season . plus hes worth at least tripple thatFor a team supposedly playing in a 3rd rate league, your mob sure seem to like our players lol!!

must have seen southampton linked with about 50 players on here, yet who have they brought in exactly? a loanee !All these Southampton rumours about big money buys don't think there is any money in the coughers jutkiewicz is prime example Southampton fans keep bleeting but lee is your lot!!!


25 Jan 2012 21:29:59
Heard we are trying to sign Barnsley's Portugese wing-mystro, Ricardo Vaz Te(1)(14)Whos we?Have we just to guess which team are trying to sign Vaz te??!And who are we? By the way Vas te has just signed a new contract at oakwell.Who's we ????He hasn,t signed/ he has been Offered a 2yr contract Wombwell Red


25 Jan 2012 21:24:21
Swindon set to sign Bournemouth striker Jayden Stockley on loan with a view to a permanent 100k deal in the summer once Di Canio frees up funds.(2)(15)


25 Jan 2012 21:09:31
Jason Roberts will complete his medical at Reading on Thursday. Not sure the loan move will go through in time for Saturday. He has been in Reading since Monday, so it's been dragging.

Reading also expect to complete two further transfers before the window closes. A central defender and attacking midfielder are on Brian McDermott's wish list as the Royals push for a play-off finish before a summer rebuild.(17)(4)I don't get those claiming this to be unreliable. Roberts is the cheap and easy option at short notice option, which means he is very likely to be our main target. We'd all like Sharp or Rhodes but they aren't the type of striker we need right now. It needs to be someone who can hold the ball up and chip in with a few goals.

As for two more signings, from McDermott himself, we've loaned our 4th choice young centre back to Huddersfield and need another. That is likely to be Osborne from Brentford. An attacking midfielder is a priority as we have never replaced Sigurdsson and need someone who can link midfield with attack. Who? No idea.


25 Jan 2012 21:02:38
Hi Ed. Big rumour going around St Marys that Keith Andrews is about to sign for saints! Any truth? {Ed013's Note - I heard Ipswich as well. I do believe that by the end of next week he will have moved permanently and I think Blackburn are willing to pay up his contract}(19)(5)


25 Jan 2012 20:58:50
Qpr to Sign Samba diakite on loan to option to sign in the summer(7)(18)


25 Jan 2012 20:45:48
Arsenal have signed Demba Ba(18)(57)Lol u wish mateAs aboveAmazing how they did this with the player away at the ACON. No medical... blah blah blah. Past your bed time?More like they will resign charlie george to partner henryIt is possible for any team to get a medical done abroad! they only have to get a doctor in said country to actually perform the medical. It happens a lot in the last hours of transfer deadline with overseas players.True bill, think David luiz done his abroad last January, stroked a belter though, you can have a medical abroad, why do you the the manager watches him doin his medical?lol have any of you even had a medical? i think notSource?Must have been a bloody expensive phonecall to sort all that out with him at the africa cup of nations. Arsenal dont have a chance of signing him.


25 Jan 2012 20:37:51
Ipswich town have signed keith andrews from blackburn more news tomorrow(11)(21)

Wesley Stokoe moving from the blue square premier to Sunderland afc on a 3 month trial so see if he can make it in the best league in the world.(6)(8)


25 Jan 2012 20:29:43
-Watford are linked with a move for Shrewsbury striker James Collins. James Collins is wanted by the hornets to form a decent partnership with striker Marvin Sordell. Watford to offer £550k and midfielder Sean Murray on loan till end of season.

-Watford are also looking at Inverness CT winger Jonny Hayes. Jonny Hayes is linked with the hornets because they need a very decent winger and Hayes is the likely candidate to join Watford. Watford will offer £500k for the Irishman.(6)(5)Why would Watford pay 550k for someone with 5 months left on their contract - if the panel value him - max 300k + sell on - just look at the Danny Graham valuation and he had scored a few!

Also £500k for an Irish footballer playing in a pub league - no way - max £250kWatford won't be buying anyone unless they can shift either Mariappa or Sordell. More likely to go for more loan signings


25 Jan 2012 20:28:38
Just seen Jordan Rhodes at Newcastle airport, about to have a medical at Sunderland to complete his 8 million pound transfer from Huddersfield.(16)(30)All this rubbish is getting boring he aint going anywhere except to Tranmere to play on saturday!!Flew from Leeds Bradgord to Newcastle did he!!Wow, seems he can be in two places at once...Hes worth £5mNewcastle has an airport? I never knew that, you learn something everyday.So he flew from Yorkshire to Newcastle? Bks

kieran richardson of sunderland to sign for leeds on loan till end of season {Ed013's Note - You have a lot of rumours for lots of teams, what's your source?}(14)(29)HP is his sauce, more truth in the version that goes onto your chips {Ed013's Note - he/she is in double figures for rumours in the last 10 mins, could be an agent!}No its a daft lad from the dark half of the north eastA Geordie schoolboy me thinks.An agent of the circus


25 Jan 2012 20:08:21
millwall to sign 14 year old East Thurrock hotshot mick bowden within the next 24 hrs.. regarded as the next richard sadlier for millwall..source.. i live 5 mins from East Thurrock's ground(7)(10)Stanford no hope ........niceI see, and your alleged proximity to the club means that this rumour is fact does it? In that case, i've been to Old Trafford a couple of times and Wayne Rooney is going to sign for Ipswich.


25 Jan 2012 19:38:29
Dynamo Kiev in contact with Gary Hooper's agent for the second time this week #EuroInterest(5)(21)


25 Jan 2012 19:53:32
Reading fc set to sign Billy sharp and Karleigh Osbourne by the end of the week

Source sky sports and daily mail(14)(12)Strong interest but SSN hasn't confirmed anything other than interest.Whens the most likely day the signing of sharp will be confirmed by the clubThe day it gets a bit chilly in hell i suspect. Reading have already said that they have limited funds available atm. Sharp's wage demands were more than moneybags Leicester wanted to pay, what makes you think Reading have more money then them given that the proposed takeover is months away?Will everyone stop mis-interpreting "limited funds", to our new owners limited is a lot larger than you expect. They takeover in a few months but have already invest transfer money this month. If we got promoted we'd be the 2nd richest club in the prem behind city ... idiots


25 Jan 2012 19:49:45
James Mcfadden to burnley on loan till end of season(11)(5)Rodriguez to norwich thenThere is nothing in this rumour, Eddie Howe only likes young players.

Maynard isnt that good but hes gotta b better than zaha, anyway good luck with your 'pursuit' of maynard, hes only got eyes for the prem the money grabbing little runt!Pearson trying to sign another defender, not flog one, you won't see Tunch back this season.Not a chance


25 Jan 2012 19:40:10
I am led to believe that Crystal Palace F.C are close to completing a sensational swoop for Bristol City F.C striker Nicky Maynard for a fee believed to be in thr region of 1.7 million pounds plus Calvin Andrew. You have been warned!(2)(34)


25 Jan 2012 18:53:03
Ed any news on any blackpool targets thanks {Ed003's Note - I believe efforts are being made, the Paddy one seems to have broken down because B'pool want a loan for him not a permanent deal,I would expect a couple of deals to be done, possibly a return for Dobbie and a goalkeeper }(1)(1)


25 Jan 2012 17:53:33
Ed03 - i'm hearing from a good source that Matty phillips has been at staplewood (SFC training ground) either monday or yesterday hence Puncheon sorting out issues with the club today as he will be used in the deal?
AW {Ed003's Note - Not true,their is a clear not for sale message being told to any enquiry }(5)(5)Mat P is NOT for sale at any price. Less so to a rival. The truth is BFC would like Puncheon, but if he was of the right attitude he'd be there already. BFC have moved on from him some time back.Ed003's is hopeing clubs are being told he is not for sell he meansOh so Puncheon's got an attitude problem now, has he? I thought Ed described him as being the perfect professional at BlackpoolHave to agree with the B'Pool fans tbh, as much as i would love to see him in red and white, they wont let him leave, he's very goodOllie had real problems with Puncheon's attitude in training. A talented player but Ollie is now looking at other options and Puncheon has missed his chance with Pool. Sad but true.What on earth are you talking about? Puncheon was no problem at all when he was at b'pool,do you honestly think Ollie would have put a bid in for him 2 weeks ago if he thought the guy was trouble? Complete gibberish.

Mr.Roller Coaster


25 Jan 2012 19:22:08
-Watford Are Interested In Inverness CT And Republic Of Ireland Winger Jonny Hayes. Watford To Offer £500k For The Sensational Winger.

-Watford Want Shrewsbury Striker James Collins To Partner Marvin Sordell Up Front. Watford Are Prepared To Offer £450k For The Striker Who Has Hit 14 Goals In 48 Appearences For The Shrews.(10)(4)Sensational ?? since whenCollins won'tbe going to Watford for less than £500k & a sizeable sell-on clause.Sensational winger? yeah right...


25 Jan 2012 19:07:49
I know someone inside southampton fc and they have confirmed that billy sharp and Matt Phillips will be signing very soon. On the way out are holmes, forte and Connolly.(15)(22)Southampton couldn't afford Matt Phillips and Bolton have just been told to sling their hook as well.Happy with that if its true but lets face isn't is it. Nite nite you've got school in the morning..........Saints fan (real one)Who do you know? Unless you know cortese or adkins you wont no who were trying to sign or signed! Be good though two good players although philips might not happen because we have got puncheon back and falque on loan, sharp on the other hand we need.Bournemouth made an approach for Connolly and were told he was needed so can't see itCould easily afford Phillips, but thats not the issue, if you actually knew someone within St.marys, they wouldnt be telling you, risk losing their job to tell you something you can put on here? Get real. COYR


25 Jan 2012 18:56:35
Cisse going to Celtic on loan confirmeed by Celtic fan in Athens who used to be his neighbour when he played at Panathanaikos(6)(21)Which cisse?Djibril... one was at Liverpool and currently at Lazio but not starting alot.The Cisse link may well be true but this guy has been laughed off the Celtic page for being caught making up stories.


25 Jan 2012 18:49:46
Wigan have signed Jean Beausejour from Birmingham on a 2 year contract(17)(4)


25 Jan 2012 18:29:20

Yago Falque - Tottenham Hotspur - Loan - Done
Tadanari Lee - Sanfreece Hiroshima - Free - Done
Mathias Jorgensen - FC Copenhagen - Undisclosed
Jack Butland - Birmingham City - Undisclosed
Billy Sharp - Doncaster Rovers - £3,500,000

Tommy Forecast - Torquay - Undisclosed
Lee Holmes - Preston - Undisclosed
Jonathon Forte - Walsall - Undisclosed(12)(30)When is this going to be announced then?Jørgensen has said he won't be coming, why would he, he's too good for us and Arsenal were interested not too long ago.Southampton are gunna pay 3.5m for billy sharp? when he has a buy out clause for 1.8m, get your facts right before writing bullst on here!Plus Sharp is going to Reading anyways.No Sharp isn't going to Reading, He's already stated he's staying at Donny until the end of the seasonBilly Sharp's release clause is 3 Million, not 1.8Also, one reading fan says he's going there and then the rest of the boring fans say it as well. So what you have an investor, he's said he will give limited funding. If leicester wouldnt/couldnt give him £47k p/w , who says you can.


25 Jan 2012 18:17:45
Burnley defender kevin long is following his ex-Accrington boss John Coleman over to Rochdale, Long has been training with Rochdale ahead of the move which is to be finalised tomorrow or friday, allowing him to play in local derby with Bury(8)(2)Only on a Month Loan


25 Jan 2012 18:04:02
Andy Carroll is 6-1 to score first tonight.......if you dont understand betting this means if you put £10 on it you will lose £10(46)(8)Haha nice one, you never know he scored two past city in 10mins last year- Brilliant. "Cheers Ray"Funny ...Prefer Carroll to Kuyt,and Carrolls on the bench!You obviously don't understand betting.You would have got your money back since he didnt start. FACT no money lost, dont think you understand football or bettingI think someone may have missed the point that the original post was infact quite a funny joke rather than serious. seems someone has had a sence of humour biopsy or it was trigger who posted it


25 Jan 2012 18:01:35
Rumours that Reading are in talks with pacey striker Shane Long for a move back to the royals. Brian didn't have the funds to keep him in January, but now the situation has changed (With promise of his west-brom salary doubled), the speedy irish forward is set to make a return!!(7)(32)Maybe as he is not happy at west bromNever, he gets good game time at west brom...... Championship or premiership. Theres only one answer to that.Not a chanceNo chance,we love him up the hawthorns and for wba to fork out 6 million on a player means we must really rate the guy.hes carrying niggles atm that why he hsant started every game lately.wen hes fit hes our main!! super supewr shane super suoer shane!!As much as we would love this to be true, there is no way we would pay the fee he commands. I thought he was out of the west brom team due to recent injuries.Would love to see him back. great player. still lots to learn and still young but there is no way he'll leave wba unless we are in the same league. even then, we wont pay the kind of money required, unless the deal to wba is scrapped and we offset the value against the remining installments. anyway, no way would he return unless he was mega unhappyThere is nothing to suggest he is unhappy at west brom, he is now their first choice striker, hes started on bench lately as hes carrying an any more people saying hes going back to reading...jog on!



25 Jan 2012 17:59:56
Joseph Cala is having second thoughts about pulling out of buying Portsmouth and is apparently "working on" saving Portsmouth from its financial crisis. This is according to his facebook profile.(5)(11)Load of rubbish. You fail to note that our wage structure wont be broken, though money is now available for players.

We wont be bringing anyone like Long back, let alone doubling his £28k a week wages!Lol!!Cala is Just bluffing, the man wont change his mind, he doent give two hoots about the poor Pompey fans, he a bloody hypocrit, from what i understand he aint got much dosh any way, and certainly wouldnt part with any to save Pompey! Git !!Hope someone saves pompey , wouldnt be the same without them . from a sincere saints fan


25 Jan 2012 17:52:32
All true West Ham fans are realistic enough to know we will not be signing any quality players in the transfer window. The problem is not the fact we dont have a decent amount of income ( just check the attendances ) its the fact we still have a huge wage bill left over from last season which is crippling our resources. Quite simply we need to get back into the premiership, even if it means playing more percentage football for the rest of the season. Big sam is aware of this situation and will get the job done with the squad he has put together. Hopefully Southampton will also do the same, as in my opinion they have played the most attractive football this season.(23)(10)Thankyou for the first respectable and articulate comment on this siteTotally agree - Saints and West Ham are top two coz they deserve to be.
Most sensible Saints realise we aint gonna spend money - NC is gambling on us going up with what weve got - hope hes right but cant see it myself.

COYRSo 30,000 plus in the Championship week in week out isnt good? get a grip please...we are just skint nothing to do with attendances!!!!Saints Fan here: I can see saints fading as our squad has less depth. I always expected WH to win. Lots of football to go but I can see second being between Saints, B'ham and Strangely enough Cardiff. Leicester have a good chance of going up via the play-offs. They have some good players and a racking manager in Pearson.... Saints have been poor of late but i am still looking forward to the run in!No1 - That is a very articulate post, it's a shame that it was written by a Saints fan pretending to be an 'ammer.

No2 - So much for this 'being skint' mullarky, you choose to tell us a sob story on the very night WH confirm a £7m bid for Jelavic, so that's a Championship team spending £7m on one player (although it wasn't accepted so they'll have to pay more to land him)

All in all, a good effort, but you only fooled the Saints fans.LOVE THAT ^^Just for the record i am 100% a west ham fan. The post was about west ham and how i thought the transfer window and rest of the season would pan out in my opinion. Please accept the post for what it was, an honest opinion from a life long hammers fan. We are at the end of the day all football fans and could not survive without each other.


25 Jan 2012 17:50:56
Grandin going to nice?(6)(4)Hope notWhat's he going to do? How do you know it will be nice? Might be horrible!


25 Jan 2012 17:50:08
Hull are hoping to complete the signing of Dean Furman from Oldham in the coming days. Latics are keen to cash in on their captain who is out of contract at the end of the season and could leave for nothing. The two clubs have both agreed a fee for winger Chris Taylor however no contract talks have yet been held.(2)(4)


25 Jan 2012 17:48:14
Emile Heskey leaving Aston Villa to join Reading FC.(13)(22)Likely, but just one of many rumours. Reading want Sharp and Roberts, but Heskey, Simeon Jackson are rumoured back-ups.If he goes to anyone it will be to leicester, his home town clubIll put a years wages on he joins the dirty mackems..........O'Neil cant get enough of him!


25 Jan 2012 17:45:52
Martins is on the verge of loan spell at Birmingham City FC, firstly he was spotted on Broad St, secondly BCFC are now trying to remove Zigic from squad.(3)(12)So your opinion not a rumour. Modern day Sherlock


25 Jan 2012 17:31:11
Ipswich Town have NOT swooped for Southend United's Kane Ferdinand or Bilel Mohsni. And neither will Ipswich sign them in this window.(9)(5)Yep your right there, in fact Ipswich wont sign anyone in the window FactI hear they have also NOT swooped for jermaine defoe, wayne rooney or joe hart!

could be more news of who they will NOT swoop for later


25 Jan 2012 17:26:27
Reading manager Brian McDermott is refusing to rule out moves for Jason Roberts, Billy Sharp and Brentford defender Karleigh Osborne Mr Reading fact(15)(9)Will he be using his own money then Mr. Reading? Because the Football club haven't got enough money to complete those kind of moves at this stage. They may have after the window closes (assuming the proposed takeover actually happens) but not now. For someone with such wonderful inside information, you're a little bit off the pace, anyone would think you were making it up.Reading have been given around 15 million to boast there current squad but this is hush hush to the public so money is available so until you know the facts keep your thoughts to yourself Mr ReadingI wrote the above comment from Mr Reading

Hey ed
I'm just wondering if the rumours about hazard to arsenal possibly involving swap with arshavin are true ?
It seems like a really good move for both clubs as arsenal are finally getting ther man + lille are getting a good replacement for there star man plus some money to invest in the club {Ed001's Note - why would Lille want Arshavin and his big wages? No interest in him to my knowledge.}(8)(17)


25 Jan 2012 16:37:05

Ipswich town to tighten the belts this window and PJ told to make do with what he has. The board are becoming worried that the club will spiral down into L1 and are not prepared to spend. As in the manner the club avoided the owed money to local business last time the board will need all the support they can get from the local business.(12)(6)Well this isnt new news I'm afraid, Tractor Boys Fans knew this as soon as the meeting with Simon Clegg had finished, he more or less stated that fianaces are tight, and he's only able to give money to players that have gambling debts, what he doesnt see is that the attendances at the home matches will tumble, if we get relegated he will be luck to see a 12'000 gate, talk about cut your own throat, I dont think the Board give a monkeys toss about Ipswich, If we get relegated lets hope that we see the back of Clegg

Rangers to sign Kris Boyd Tomorrow until the end of the season.

If you do not believe me, the odds for him joining rangers again has just dropped from 10/1 to 1/3 on all major bookies websites taking bets. Apparently there has been loads of money being backed on the move happening in the next 24 hours....WATP(5)(7)Eh who cares a jot he is doneSo thats him back with his tail between his legs,zzzThank god for that,he was getting linked with leeds and we already have 1 donkey in paynter,back to his proper footballing level thereRather than never getting promoted with leedsBullst. he will NOT BE JOINING RANGERS.

Former Board member Gary Hoffman is close to securing the buy out of Coventry City from current owners SISU.

SISU were forced to curtail spending after fans failed to support their club in sufficient numbers to allow the club to breakeven. SISU became tired of sustaining a mounting deficit.

Hoffman's consortium has a £30 million plan: £10 million to cover operating losses, another £10 million to help acquire half the company that runs the Ricoj stadium and were going to use the remaining £10 million to strengthen the squad - however, Hoffman will offer £5 million of that to buy off SISU.

Hoffman's consortium want a higher profile name to be manager and ex-Cov manager, Peter Reid, is top of their wanted list. Andy Thorn will return to being Chief Scout. Ex-Cov favourite Bobby Gould is likely to be Chairman or Director of Football.

With only £5 million to strengthen the squad, Reid will only be able to use a fraction of that on actual transfer fees and will be forced to rely on free transfers and loans because most of the £4 million will be devoted to signing on fees and wages.

The deal is scheduled to be finalised at the end of January and should feature in the media towards the end of this week.(2)(10)Off course it will! Now go and have a lie down!Why would CCFC want Peter Reid when there is lot better managers currently available i.e Neil Warnock, Billy Davis etc.

Futhermore any true CCFC fan would see that Andy Thorn has been not been given the opportunity in terms of finances and should be.


25 Jan 2012 16:11:24
Swindon striker Mehdi Kerrouche set to sign for aldershot town to try and help with their goalscoring problems, likely to be a loan deal until the end of season. Kerrouche has scored 8 goals in 11 starts but has fallen out with di Canio so is available.(6)(3)Medi is a very good player and would score goals, its a shame he has fallen out with pdc, i think medi fell out with pdc because of the hard training sometimes 7 days a week.If true Aldershot are getting a very good player who will score alot of goals.

Players rumoured to be on Powell's hit list are: Jamie Clapham, David Weir, Jari Litmanen and Ugo Ehiogu.(5)(4)Haha, Doherty part right, but we won't be signing anyone else from the knackers yard. Squad is strong enough for this year

Aston Villa to spend £17.5 million on Clint Dempsey.(4)(7)Nope, he rejected a move to Arsenal on the last few hours of the last transfer window, why on earth would he go to Villa with no ambition what so ever?No way and he is not worth thatDempsey is good but not worth that muchTo villa your having a laughThis will only happen if Bent goes to QPRHa ha ha ha ha ha haWhy would he go to Villa?Not a chance

Any Birmingham City rumours Ed? {Ed001's Note - nothing much, I did hear talk of a bid for Templeton of Hearts, but so far nothing has come of it, so I think it must have been either complete rubbish or just if he got a free due to unpaid wages. I would certainly expect Brum to offer him a contract if Hearts do fail to pay his wages again and lose him.}(7)(3)


25 Jan 2012 14:41:15
Charlton Athletic to bid for Anthony Wordsworth off Colchester to add competition to Jackson for the rest off the season.

Also Free Agent Stuart Parnaby is set to sign for the addicks as back up for future england star Chris Solly

Players exciting the valley include:

Gary Doherty: DAG & RED (LOAN)
Paul Hayes: SctHOPHE (LOAN)
Andy Hughes: PRESTON NORTH END (LOAN)(3)(7)I like how you have looked into the future and seen Solly playing for England. I would have thought Kyle Walker, around the same age, had us more or less covered there.
wallyWoody wont come cheap he has as sweet a left foot as u will seeI think he means team GB star, which he might be called into for the olympics.Dont need wordsworth. Better players on the radar


25 Jan 2012 14:39:56
surprise surprise West Ham being priced out of a bid for Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic, so they
turning attentions to Loan deal for Solomon
Kalou?? Are U having a laugh! All this
press coverage for Hammers signings which as
previously reported were all attempts at
grabbing headlines. Original targets talked
about Billy Sharp and Nicky Maynard still
available but Hammers show no funds
available by going for loan signing in Solomon
Kalou! As stated previous "HAmmers have had
more targets than MI6". To re-iterate this,
hammers have shown their ambition by bringing in
some unknown from MAN U and a dodgy
YANK both free (penny pinching comes to mind)(9)(10)Why all the fuss about jellivic ,far to slow looks good at rangers but he would struggle big timeRangers confirmed a £7m bid from West Ham has been rejected... oops, good rant though, not childish at all.


25 Jan 2012 14:39:15
League 2 strugglers Aldershot Town looking at options up front as have not been firing many in. Possible move for a League 2 based player that has fallen out of favour with his club and has a '1 in 2' goal to games ratio. If this comes off it could be a great great signing for us.

Source: 100% Reliable source at Aldershot.(7)(2)That would be medi kerouche good player very direct and yes he has fallen out with pdc,he would score plenty of goals...


25 Jan 2012 11:38:13

Tranmere to make a triple loan swoop on Liverpool Reserves in an attempt to get something out of the season. Michael Ngoo, Suso and Raheem Sterling are to join on loan to add an attacking threat and some width(6)(14)Liverpool have already rejected loan request's for sterling from West ham, Bolton Swansea and (another championship club but I cant remember which) so why would they let him go to a league 1 side when he could get experience at a much higher level ? {Ed001's Note - loanees have to be 18, Sterling is 17.}Sterling is to young to go on loan im afraid being only 17! Needs to be 18.


25 Jan 2012 14:33:22
Aston villa are set to offer Leeds the chance to sign Delph permantley in a swap for Robert Snodgrass with leeds paying an extra 1m(7)(29)That would be fantastic for villa,but cant see leeds letting him go on the cheapWhy would Leeds have to pay an extra 1mil? That's just a bad deal for us. Snodgrass is only a little older than Delph, and is an attacker. That's not fair at all. They are worth around the same price. And if this did happen, it wouldnt until the summer.
wallyDelph is not getting a chance.
Snodgrass is not too good either.

Bung them a tenner so they can buy dinner, or perhaps he was in the Co-op buying it for them, he's nice like that.I saw someone in a florrist keepers shirt aswellPerhaps he's signing for the Co-op !!!!!Was he buying some matches?I think he would do well at countyTumbleweed i see the Forest fans are still in hiding, shame that.

Make your own mind up. "He is on a free so he can get sorted out now and get settled in somewhere," Derby boss Nigel Clough said.


25 Jan 2012 13:41:17
Leeds are set to loan Lloyd Sam to Millwall with a view to permanent in summer.(18)(10)Was Lloyd Sam not the next big thing at the start of last season?!He isn't too bad played in his proper position-on the right,but grayson being grayson likes to play players out of position,so we play him on the left and he is hopeless thereMaybe Grayson, should play Sam and Snodgrass both on the right wing? Not worry about the left, it s over rated...... Or maybe Grayson thinks Snodgrass is better than Sam? Just a thought.


25 Jan 2012 13:32:59
Put across news that I already knew and addressed, yes. I know you don't want to sell, but if a brilliant bid comes in from some1 like Forest, he'll be gone mate, that's all I'm saying.(0)(5)Wanna give us a clue who??Forest won't be putting in brilliant bids for anyone! They have no cash!


25 Jan 2012 13:32:09
Expect WBA to make a bid to take Dirk Kuyt on loan until the end of the season. Roy Hodgson rates the Dutch international very highly and thinks he could be the answer to giving his team some much needed width.(15)(18)Kuyt may not be the Kopite's favourite player (though his work rate goes some way to redeeming his many short comings) but I can think of absolutely no reason Liverpool would let him go out on loan for the rest of the season.He quitre regularly gets a game at Liverpool whether it be coming off the bench or starting the games so I very much doubt this.
JimYou wouldnt afford his wages


25 Jan 2012 13:18:53
Rumor is Gus Poyet at Brighton has been offered Emile Heskey as the striker he so desperately needs in a swap deal that would bring Brighton's Lewis Dunk (Center Half) to Villa ? Seems plausible ??(6)(14)Emile Heskey a striker ?, i always thought he was a useless lump. But in all seriousness, if poyet was daft enough to take him off our hands in exchange for a player. Then i feel Brighton need to start looking for a new manager, as he would obviously not have a clue.Dunk isnt going anywhere(for free)< not in a swap deal for heskey anyhow :(

25 Jan 2012 12:53:41
Puncheon to stay at Southampton. Source: official club site(15)(7)Only cos the transfer fee that southampton want is ludcrousLets hope the fickle Saints fans that slaughtered him every time he made a mistake get off his back, Puncheon is a good player...give him another chance.

COYR STIDOne problem Jason had was AOC was keeping him out of the team-hard for a guy of his age and ability to accept this with AOC being only 17 at the time.Could be a new chance for him now-get behind him guys.I agree with the other people writing here give puncheon another go when he did play last year he was the one that tried something different ,got us free ficks on the edge of the area for ricky to score from the lads got something there and hey when i went and watched monday we could do with some one who give us a little extra on the pitchIt's ludicrous money to get anyone in Jan but couldn't your poor little club afford him?


25 Jan 2012 12:46:51
Apparently no real bid was ever received
for Nicky Maynard who is still for sale as is
Billy Sharp. Sam allardyce however no longer
has any faith in his board because all his
pre transfer window targets have fallen
by the wayside. Hammers now looking
likely to see remainder of season out as they
are which is a real worry for supporters as
other clubs have strengthened and are
closing on Hammers. Cardiff And Saints are
main challengers to push WHU into
a very dodgy play off position. FInally Lewis
Mcgugan has agreed to join hammers but
again WHU board have no funds so that won;t happen(12)(9)Hammers board are all blow and no show anything to get them in the newsMr Gold and Sullivan, are great owners they have reduced our debt from 130 million to around 60million, plus we have a transfer budget of 10 million this transfer window, and i don't no why we are attempting to get players like maynard and sharp, no disrespect to them but we should be going for better strikers as were going to be in the premiership this year or next and them players won't be good enough!Why would west ham go throught the whole process of finding a player,getting a player,sign him,agree things with him n then say 'oh hang on,we aint got no money!' it doesnt work like that numpty!

Reading are want to bring back Steve Sidwell if Villa agree to let the midfielder go.(6)(19)Doubt villa have a say on sidwell as he plays for fulham.Erm...Sidwell plays for Fulham!I thought Sidwell was a Fulham playerTotal rubbish as steve sidwell plays for fulham!!Seeing as sidwell plays for fulham its unlikelyVilla, Fulham, it's all the same if you say it fast enough. Delph's pants by the way.It's not really bad news, seeing as we aren't ambitious enough to sign him permanently anyway.
wallyThis isn't likely to happen, and Sidwell plays for Fulham!!
wallyDelph can be top class if you play him right.
