Any tue cardiff city rumors ??


26 May 2010 22:44:46
I recieved confirmation that Barcelona will place their first bid for Fabregas this weekend. Chelsea's first bid for Alex Pato has been turned down. And the irresistable bid recieved by Manchester United was also turned down. Bayern München will be the first to approach Milos Krasic after the World Cup. Manchester United are going to make another bid for Angel di Maria after their £10mil + Anderson bid was turned down. Arsenal are looking to buy Per Mertesacker or Rolando. Everton will make one more desperate bid for Joao Moutinho. And Man City have turned their attention to Lahm and Arteta. Torres has rejected a chance to play for Man City.

Rangers News

Ellis deal to go through in the next through days.

Boyd to sign a three year deal.

Weir will also be signing.

Wilson deal could fall through with the English FA classing Scottish players as non–home grown players.

I am sorry to say but Kris Boyd was at St James Park today. I got his autograph and he told me himself he expects to sign for Newcastle by the end of the week

26 May 2010 21:32:13
Blackpool Fans!
I just heard from the horses mouth itself that STEVEN FLETCHER WILL BE SIGNING FOR 2.1 Million in the next week. < Another duluded blackpool fan . Fletcher will go to a much better team possibley Newcastle, WBA or Wigan. However. Newcastle will sign the following.

Boyd – All but done

Onuaha £2million.

O'Hara £4million – its on alot of websites saying they are close to sealing this deal.

Gary Hooper – £1million with Leon best going the other way

Mulumbu £1.5million

Wilshire loan

Vela loan

Van annaholt loan


Xisco £1.5

Best P/E

Lua Lua loan

forster loan

ranger loan

ibmen loan

tozer £1.5million

R.taylor £2.5million

Italian youngster £2million


J.cole. wage cut if this happens.

Wheater. strong rumours about a £3million switch. been seen at Newcastle.

Ireland loan also been seen at Newcastles training ground also possibiley S.fletcher if they fail to get Whilshire

Ebondo strong links with him.

Cleverley Newcastle was in advance talks with Man Utd last week

Mcgeedy £3million if the O'hara deal doesn't go through

Newcastle team next season

Simpson Taylor ( captain) Onuaha Enrique

O'hara/Mcgeedy Mulumbu/Ireland Nolan Gutierrez

Boyd Carroll

These are 100% . most of the time I laugh at the pathetic duluded leeds and blackpool fans saying their signing the likes of Owen and Smith. Blackpool will go down next year and Leeds will do well to stay in the championship. stop saying who you want to see at the club. we want real transfers and these are real.

Any more info needed then let me know.

Keeping all you fans posted.



26 May 2010 22:47:21
1st of all to clear up i have a great source with in Cardiff City Football Club and he has assured me that Joe Ledley has no idea where he will end up next season. He is not in talks with any club at the moment as he is on holiday. Dave jones sat down and talked with the Chairman elect and has decided to stay due to the deal in which Vincent Tan will bankroll a summer spending spree and clear all debt with an agreement on which Dave Jones must reach promotion or he will be sacked. TG will do everything in his power to offer joe ledley everything he wants with a clause in which if a 7 mill bid from a premiership club comes in the bid will be accepted. 7 mill is a strange price considering he's been out for most of last season but the malaysians believe if play off form has recovered his price tag of 6 mill. Now onto Jay Bothroyd who has personally come out the public and said he will give it 1 more season and see out the reminder of his contract as he owes it to dave jones who has been the only manager to get the best out of him. Micheal Chopra is a major priority for the malaysians as he is a superstar in asia and althour he has high wages they believe that his publicity in an asian market would cover most if not all of his wages throught out the year. it is believed that either McCormack or whitts will leave but not both and defenetly not to another championship team. Chris Burke Could have left but his lack of form in the Play offs have really hit his prospects of joining a Premiership club but i do believe he was unfit. Now players coming in Gabbidon from West Ham is very interested and is on DJ list but he needs to prove fitness. Henri Camera has been contacted but demanded way to high wages. Jason Roberts is also on DJ list and has been made available to go on loan to Cardiff after coming so close to signing on loan in January before the transfer embargo. Nick Montgomery is being touted as the 1st signing with in days. Steve howard won't be joining leicester are not willing to sell him as are to go for another promotion push. Rob Hulse is also a name being mentioned around Cardiff at the moment. Jason Koumas has been made available by wigan and is also on DJ list may have to high wages though. Adam Drury and Adam Lallana have been contacted but Lallana is waiting out on a premiership move. Drury is said to be considering moving but is very happy at norwich and wouldn't be happy to move unless it was more money which may put off Cardiff. Finally there is going to be a New Malaysian will be joining the Consortium said to be more efficient and willing to pump mega bucks into Cardiff only if there is a full take over which is looking more likely by the day although Paul Guy Will continue to be a board member eventually seeking the role of chairman after a year or so and the Malaysians will become silent backers.

Matthew upson and carlton cole to sign 4 safc 4 14 million after world cup


26 May 2010 22:28:46
To the guy who posted this:

26 May 2010 20:23:59
Torres has cut his hair and it is a known fact (on his website) that he only evr does that when he wants a fresh start.

What does this mean?

Rumour has it that he is only staying at LFC if they get rid of Rafa.

He wants to trust his manager and it appears he has lost faith with his fellow Spaniard

This has rubbed off on Gerrard and they are both v v likely to move to Italy only If rafa stays at LFC.

Expect to see rafa stay out of pride, torres and stevie leave. then rafa move out and leave LFC in a mess!

Horrible news but its looking true.

Mr Gauder








26 May 2010 22:29:15

His replacement is likely to be Jay bothroyd from cash strapped CArdiff city Paul Lambert will make a bid before the weekend is here.


26 May 2010 22:23:08

James milner WILL be the main target with Walcott also being a target if arsenal buy another winger or striker. Only jovanovic will be brought unless torres goes.

Bellamy Arteta Cahill/fellaini Petrov/o'hara

Keane Beckford

hate to say it but pienaar will go


26 May 2010 21:56:50
Before i start with information from my source we need to see a few things straight;
1).Rooney will not leave especially not within the next couple of season's :(
2).Tottenham will not beat the likes of chelsea inter and real madrid in the race dzeko, you probaly will qualify but you need to be in CL for at least 2 seasons b4 you throw names like that out.
3).Kevin nolan not leaving before rumours start he is one of my bestmates so don't start chattin bollocks!
4).Rodwell will sign a new contract.
It is believed that a middle eastern consurtium has been increasing there intrest within the last couple of weeks and talks are ongoing.This is why all the Yossi rumours have emerged.
My source, scout, is part of a team that is searching for britains top youngsters.
This is true !!
Mata will be bidded for
thanks scouserj


26 May 2010 21:57:19
There will be a few good signings at Anfield but nowhere near the amount published on here Wayne Hennessey, Milan Jovanovic, Stephen Ireland, Jonjo Shelvey, Danny Wilson, Juan Mata and John Arne Riise will be the only players coming in Rafa is also working with Joe Coles agent but knows he is fighting a losing battle as the midfielder has said he would much prefer to stay in London, he will either stay at Chelsea or go to Arsenal or Spurs.No other centre halfs will be coming in so I don't know why I keep hearing the likes of Cahill, Kjaer, Richards etc.and no other strikers Tardelli, Pazzini, C.Cole, Jones etc. and no more wingers like Silva, Young, Milner etc. there was some substance to the Aleksandar Kolarov rumour but Lazio are asking for £15million so that one is gone and probablly the most ridiculous rumour is Gerard for Higuain and Van der Vaart its just not going to happenswap deals are very rare people talk about them like they happen all the time, Benayoun, Cavalieri, Riera, Degen, Aurelio, Plessis, Martin, Itandje, Threlfall, El Zhar, San Jose and Nemeth are all going to leave, expect to see Ayala, Pacheco and Kelly to get a lot more first team action next year, Gerrard and Torres are staying there is a slight danger Mascherano will leave if Barcelona don't get Fabregas but Rafa has lined up either Ever Banega or Javi Martinez as potential replacements Rafa will nt be allowed to spend the money left over from Mascheranos replacement if he is sold so lets hope he isnt.There is not going to be massive changes just a few important ones and at least next season we will also be staring with a fully fir Aquilani and Rodriguez who we added in January.If investment comes in then maybe we will see Milner or Silva or Kjaer or Pazzini but as Hicks has said today they arent expecting a sale until November or December but he did mention there will be funds available for Rafas targets but it is really annoying to hear people like Mr.Broughton or James –007– talking about a takeover happening soon and they have an inside source , so unless you know a secret billionaire who is yet to show his hand please stop talking crap.


26 May 2010 21:41:08
Celtic set sights on Joseph Yobo.

DaMarcus Beasley and Garry Kenneth to Blackpool ?

Jose Mourinho at Madrid, done deal.

Where will Sinisa Mihajlovic end up Fiorentina or Inter ?

Inter budget for next season 100m.

Benfica denies rumours about Di Maria been sold to Real Madrid.

Bondz N'Gala happy at Plymouth.


26 May 2010 21:46:01
Joe Ledley is in negations with rangers at the moment and his been offered £20,000 a week. Rangers look favourite to sign him( on a free) but Everton stoke and west ham all want to talk to him. Also Cardiff will get no compensation if he goes to rangers.


26 May 2010 21:49:30
In regard to Darel Russel leaving the mighty yellows, this is not the case, he is a great friend of mine and he has told me he is currently agreeing contracts with norwich and will be staying.


26 May 2010 21:40:07
Real Madrid are trying to push a deal through for Phil Jagielka. The fee they are pushing is £19 million, but Everton would agree for around £25 million I'm told. I'm surprised this isn't more commonly known. Everton are looking to buy another good English (and young) centre back either Ryan Shawcross, Gary Cahill, Steven Taylor (most likely) or David Wheater.

Also, if Steven Pienaar leaves, Joao Moutinho will be brought in as a replacement. Jermaine Beckford and Joe Ledley will be signed regardless.


26 May 2010 21:38:30
Rangers News

26 May 2010 21:39:27
Big rumour over here in Derry that Derry City U17 central midfielder Marc Quigley will be Neil Lennons first official signing. I'v watched this lad on many occasions and he has got real potential..actually reminds me a young Paul McStay. But as I said only a rumour.


26 May 2010 21:30:07
How do you no this ? whats the source ?
26 May 2010 21:02:39
Boyd signing for Newcastle.

Cofirmed tommorrow morning.

Wheater is not a target.

Heard this from a reliable source.


26 May 2010 21:30:21
Dundee to sign Enoch from Falkirk firstly, then Dickov and Tom Elliott from Leeds with Goodwillie going the other way.


26 May 2010 21:31:03
"Any blackpool rumours"

Its emerged that Piquonne wants to play premiership football, and Blackpool could be the ideal move.


26 May 2010 21:32:13
Blackpool Fans!
I just heard from the horses mouth itself that STEVEN FLETCHER WILL BE SIGNING FOR 2.1 Million in the next week.


26 May 2010 21:33:21
Norwich have now completed the signings of Crofts and Ward, as I said previously.

The loan deal for Fraser Forster is very likely to be completed, although Norwich will be made to wait for a few weeks as Newcastle will be assessing their squad.

However, in the coming days/weeks moves will be made for:

Matt Phillips (Wycombe)
Danny Green (Dagenham & Redbridge)
Matt Taylor (Exeter)
Billy Paynter (Swindon – if they don't go up, otherwise a different target will be pursued)

Darel Russel will leave on a free transfer to Leeds (wages too high for his ability), and CB Jens Berthel Askou will be allowed to move on if/when the Matt Taylor deal is completed. A fee of around £400k will attract Plymouth and Sheffield Wednesday.

These relatively cheap signings will allow for a 'marquee signing' later in the window, potentially Rochdale's highly–rated youngster Tom Kennedy.


26 May 2010 21:36:52
Had a chat with Charlton's boss Phil Parkinson and I asked him what players he's looking at signing. He mentioned Jay McEverley, Will Hoskins, Richard Chaplow and Richard Wright (if Darren Randolph leaves for Burnley)
he also said he's going to fight tooth & nail to keep Nicky Bailey.


26 May 2010 21:26:05
Neil Sullivan to return to leeds for 200k, expect this to materialise more over the next few days after the bid was accepted at tea time tonight.


26 May 2010 21:18:47

26 May 2010 21:14:22
I live in Texas and the word around here is that Hicks has sold his share of LFC to concentrate on the financial troubles surrounding his Dallas teams. Supposedly, from what I hear, Gillett has done the same thing and the new owner of Liverpool will be announced soon. New money and new times at LCF.


26 May 2010 21:07:08

club will be sold, but not completed until jan 2011
Raffa will remain at the club for at least 1 more year.
Gerrard, Torres & Mascherano will remain at the club.
a substantial transfer kitty is in place for Raffa to strengthen, with Hicks & Gillette hoping the investment will see lfc back competing for the title next year, (personally i believe the tranfer budget was insisted upon by the new owners, in the hope we are still competing for trophys by the time the takeover is complete)
Riera, Aurellio, Deggen deffo for sale
listening to offers for:
Skirtel, Benayoun, Lucas, (Babbel & Ngog loan deals)
Bridge, Richards, Upson, J cole, Ireland, Parker. SWP
Pavlechenko, santa cruz.

26 May 2010 20:57:28
Liverpool will have new owners within the next 2–6 weeks 'people within know the club have been in contact with the two leading partys for some time now & talks were at a very advanced stage with both' with a deal with the prefferd party ready to be completed soon. Rafa will stay as he is held in high regard with new owners who value his true worth 'as it is through out europe ' and know given the right backing and bring in the players at the top end of the market then a return to challenging for trophys will return.As for which players will come in is pure fiction 'no one need clame they know .but torres will stay' & aguerro is his new patrner 'the only deal that is known. Call the yanks all you want they know they are clse to a deal and want out fast .Dont believe all that the "MAN UTD" press write about us 'FUNNY HOW YOU NEVER SEE THERE NAME GOING THROUGH THE RINGER EVERY DAY LIKE OUR CLUB 'WITH THEY DEBT THEY HAVE (funny that?)

Fabregas insists that hes future is down to Arsene Wenge. Wengner is not selling him unless its for 87million EUR (£76million) so it looks like that's not going to happen. Schwarzer will be joining for £3million. His 37 and probably has 2 more years left in him and then Szczesny will be ready by then. Gourcuff will be reunited with bestfreind Chamakh for 17.5 million. Also Vanderwiel is joining for £9million and would also be reunited with his good freind Vermaelen. We all know Gallas, Senderos, Silvestre and maybe Campbell are leaving. So Cahill will come in for £13million and a cheap young Centre back will join. Chamakh and Vanpersie will play as the front men and Gourcuff will be just behind them. Fabregas, Diaby/Nasri and Song will be in Midfield. Clichy, Vermaelen, Cahill, Vander wiel. will be the back four. This will be the team next year.


26 May 2010 20:28:37
I heard there will be 4 new faces at old trafford this summer the first will be huntelaar ac milan have said they would give us 10 and huntelaar for berbaflop also cuming in would be wolfsburgs dzeko in a 15 million move with macheda going on loan to wolfsburg.

Derek Shaw looks set to allow Trevor Hemmings to take full control of the club on June 1st. This will mean Shaw resigning and Hemmings will invest money in the squad over the summer to achieve promotion by 2012. Hemmings will invest 5 million this summer and Ferguson has these targets:

Billy Sharp/Gary Hooper
Danny sttu
Matt Phillips
Nicky Butt
Kyle Naughton
Craig Morgan
Billy Paynter


George Boyd is an option but not as likely as the others.

100% true


26 May 2010 20:19:02
To the cardiff fan who said big changes are happening and that Ledley is staying, sorry mate, but you have no money whatsoever, the big changes will be the whole squad leaving, and no players you talked about coming in except maybe Howard.
Rumours i've heard:
Hulse, Hooper and Watt to Leeds
Di Maria to Real
Balotelli to Chelski
Ledley to Stoke
Boyd to Derby
Boyd to Birmingham
Wheater and Wilshere to Newcastle
Paul Dickov, next Oldham manager.


26 May 2010 20:19:14
To the Ediot that said this!

26 May 2010 20:00:25
Heard from a reliable source (got the Lambert and Puncheon stories way before the media) that Lambert and Lallana on their way to either QPR or Cardiff, Lallana looking more like going to Cardiff, apparently. Also Saints are quite close to signing Papa Waigo again and are also close to securing the services of Steven Thompson (Burnley) and highly rated Chelsea keeper Rhys Taylor on loan.


Jason Puncheon Could Be Moving On Though after a Average start to his Southampton Carear. Celtic looking likely to be the ones who are going to get him. But Alan Pardew said that hes not going to let him go if the price is under £2M.

But if he does go Alan Pardew will get someone better in. That Actually wants to play for Southampton.
These are the likely Replacements if Puncheon Goes:

Darren Ambrose (Crystal Palace) – £2M
Adel Taarabt (Tottenham) – £1.5M


26 May 2010 20:20:23
Is that the Steve Thompson, who is signing for Saints, the one who this afternoon agreed a new deal with Burnley. As for Lallana, a friend of mine knows his father quite well, and this along with a lot of other Saints rumours on here is utter rubbish.


26 May 2010 20:20:46

Not a rumour this is a FACT
WBA, Stoke and Wigan have all had £3m bids accepted for Cardiff frontman Jay Bothroyd. Its rumoured that Bothroyd wants around £15k a week.


26 May 2010 20:14:54

to gooners fans good news and bad news guys

i have been informed that arsenal are trying to sort out two signings quickly to show cesc their intent for next season these signings are

GK Buffon 14 million
CB Hangeland 12 million
wenger wanted subotic but they are looking for 20+ million

if this still fails to keep cesc then 2 midfielders will come in as no–one can replace cesc (except xavi) steven ireland for 10 million and senna for 3 million. offering experience and premiership experience.

Thommo (Thom Kirwin)


26 May 2010 19:32:27
Kept in touch with Stevie Thompson, and he's just told me that Blackpool's reason for releasing Hameur Bouazza was that he was causing bad vibes in the dressing room as he felt as if he was better than the team. His wages were also proving a problem. Stevie said he was on wages between 15 and 20k, but couldn't reveal the total amount.

Rob Edwards and Ben Burgess set to accept month by month rolling contracts whilst doing their coaching badges in preparation for coaching roles alongside Thommo, with Steve McPhee also doing his next set of badges.

Transfers mentioned – only around £6million will be spent, with some shrewd business and 'surprise signings' to happen..

Mikel Forsell – Trial
Charlie Austin – £500k
Seamus Coleman – Loan (length not yet agreed)
Barry Bannan – £500k
DJ Campbell – £1million
Stephen Dobbie – Enquiry (looking unlikely)
Nabil El Zahr – £500k
Paddy McCourt – £1million
Lee Carsley – Free
Darren Ambrose, Neil Danns, + Neil Danns – £2.5 million
Keiron Westwood – £1million

Holloway looked into the possibility of signing Gergely Rudolph, but he has already agreed a contract with Genoa.

Mark Halstead – Fulham – £1million
David Vaughan – Everton – £4million

Ash Eastham is expected to break into the team next season as Ian Holloway and Thommo highly rate him.

All I can reveal at the moment as per transfers. Keep you updated when possible, but life for Blackpool fans is really started to look exciting.


26 May 2010 19:34:39

The 20–year old flying wideman is out of contract at Argyle next month and Queens Park Rangers and newly–promoted Leeds United are both monitoring the situation at Home Park.

OH AND TO THIS GUY 26 May 2010 16:16:48
Doncaster rovers have now missed out on Elliot Ward so now they will turn there attention to Jay DeMerit who is on a free transfer. Ben Burgess is on SOD's Radar but it is more likely he will make a bid for Brett Pitman and Chris Dagnall. Tom Kennedy will join very, very soon he has been offered a contract. Oh and i forgot Marlon Harewood has been seen at the Keepmoat and has been offered a contract, he has let his agent sort all of that out so it may be that he doesn't join because our low wages.

And to the leeds fan who said we have a garden shed as a stadium 1–0 AT WEMBERRRRLLEEEYYY it took you a few years to get here and now you are your going straight back down. Oh and Thanks for the 6 points this season.

LMFAO, get real small team, small stadium and its YOU who will be going down next season only place we'll be going is the PREM somewhere you have never been and will never go which is why your still going on about a league 1 play off final Marlon Harewood, Jermaine Beckford, Billy Sharp keep dreaming eh


26 May 2010 18:57:08

What the latest on:
David Wheater
Kris Boyd

apparently close to signing

How do you no this information ?


26 May 2010 18:58:16
Rafael Benitez has been in talks with Rodriguez de Moya who is the agent of Jesus Navas of Sevilla and despite having cured his homesickness Rafa has been told he is not willing to move out of Spain, Rafa is now looking adoringly towards Juan Mata of Valencia, Valencia have told Rafa he can have Mata for around £18million but David Silva is not for sale , I would assume Rafa will not be able to afford £18million so he may try barter down a million or two and maybe and see if Valencia would be open to a player plus cash deal.


26 May 2010 18:47:59
Leeds United

Leeds are on the verge of signing Rob Hulse from Derby in the next few days for a fee in the region of 750 K.

Leeds along with Cardiff City and Ipswich have all had bids accepted by Scthorpe for Gary Hooper and it is now up to the player to decide.

Beckford will be announced as an Everton player in the next few weeks once a deal is finalised for them to sell Yakubu to West Ham and possibly Louis Saha to Bordeaux. We will then be getting Shamus Coleman on a season long loan from them.

The deal to sign striker Billy Sharpe has now collapsed as Leeds are unwilling to meet the 1.2 mill asking price set by Sheffield United.

Leeds have agreed a deal with Arsenal to take Sanchez Watt on a season long loan depending on who Arsenal manage to get in Wenger may decide to keep him.

Midfielder Micheal Doyle will become the first signing of the summer for a fee in the region of 300 k following a successful loan spell at Elland Road.

Celtic have made a bid for winger Robert Snodgrass which was immidiatly regected by the club, but they are expected to come back with an increased offer in the next few days.

The rumour linking the club with Ebanks Blake is completly untrue and the club have expressed no interest in him what so ever.

Dare Vrsic is a possibilty on a season long loan but recent interest from West Brom could scupper the move.


26 May 2010 18:48:04
Wow i have to say it amazes me how many people come on and post rumours about their teams rivals when its clear they are to noise up real fans.Anyway to clarify 1 point Kris Boyd has stated that he would sign a new deal with rangers if the current management team stayed and as has been reported Walter Smith has signed a 1 yr contract and Ally/Kenny 2 yr deals.
2nd point for all the desperate Celtic fans who continually claim Rangers have no money to spend its been widely reported that Rangers do have some money to spend on new players and re–signing out of contract players, this is due to Rangers getting automatic entry to the champions league this coupled with ongoing talks with Galatasary over the sale of Madjid Bougerra (5mill) at least will give wattie some decent money to spend.expect a few players to join which will be announced shortly


26 May 2010 18:53:10
My dad works at the city ground (cannot reveal his role) but this is 100% true.

Joe Garner is heading to Doncaster Rovers by early next week at the latest. He is keen to join for first team football and has already been to discuss terms with them this week. He almost went to Doncaster in the summer but Billy wanted him to play more games but things havent worked out that way. Good luck Joe.

Disapointed forest fan.


26 May 2010 18:40:25

Ellis buying rangers now appears unlikely!


26 May 2010 18:27:45
Dvid Silva set to stay in Spain as Valencia have enough money to service debts from the sale of David Villa for £35 million to Barcelona.

Also Angel Di Maria to Man United as he is a massive Man United fan and has expressed major desire to make the move to Old Trafford. Also Sir Alex Ferguson has made clear that he views a young left footed left winger as the massive gap in the squad and has made clear the need to make Angel part of the team. Another reason being that Angel is the main transfer target this summer and is actually available, albeit at a massive cost as although Benfica aren't actually planning to cash in now rather than later although would prefer to keep their grip on their latest hot future prospect. Expect Sir Alex to capture a possible transfer of the summer in Angel Di Maria for £40 million.

Hi all I brought news on the press conference, with Elliott Ward signing on today, Lambert has pulled the plug on the Rhodes deal. Rhodes' Ipswich routes seem to have been the stumbling block which is fair enough. Matt Phillips is to have a medical over the next few days, he's keen to join, while my source has also informed me that Lambo is now talking to Charlton with regards to Lloyd Sam. Dean Marney has also been targeted, while up–front, City are after Luke Freeman and Carlisle's Gary Madine. I'll bring you more news from my source as I recieve it.


26 May 2010 18:00:00
I live quite close to where Steven Ireland grew up in Cork, Ireland.The local rumour is that Liverpool (providing they can shift sum players first) are willing to pay upto 10 million for him.however City want closer to 15 for him or a loan with a view to buy at that price.Liverpool know he will perform if on loan, and no1 can be sure if theyll have the funds next year.wil post if i hear anything more.this is a genuine rumour as his family arent exactly quiet about him.

am a neutral in this as i support my local side in irish league.

Swedish forward Marcus Olsson is attracting mounting interest from England. The 21–year–old is currently on the books of Halmstads in his homeland, where he has been a first–team regular for the past two years. A number of mature performances have brought him to the attention of clubs outside of Scandinavia, with it widely expected that he will be on the move this summer. A switch to England appears to be the most likely option, with his twin brother Martin already plying his trade at Blackburn Rovers. Marcus is hoping to tread a similar path in the near future, but for now the Premier League may be a step too far. He could, however, be drafted in by a Championship club, with Bristol City and newly–promoted Leeds United reported to be interested. It is understood that a bid of around £600,000 would be enough to tempt Halmstads into a sale.


26 May 2010 18:01:12

We all know benitez is going nowhere because there is no need for him to move, masch, gerrard and torres are staying aswell because again there is no need for a move and they all enjoy the club which is a friendly environment, possibly even the same with benyayoun, but riera has issues with benitez so he is looking for a new home, babel has huge potential but is lazy so he is going, degen is too old and won't get played, same with el zhar, ngog, kakaniklic and other reserves will be loaned to clubs for expierience, fabio aurelio isn't up to the lfc standard and benitez will be looking into buying turan, joe cole(free as contract runs out), banega, maybe kolarov or niang, no kaka, no ronaldhino, nothing special, it won't be like shankly in 59', benitez won't scrap the squad, he will stregnthen it instead.

Jose Mourinho wants to sign the following players for Real Madrid this summer:
Zlatan Ibrahmovic– (£28 million. He has floped at barca this season and wants to work with the 'special one' again.)

Steven Gerrard (£25 million. Not in hells chance in my opinion but that's what I've heard from a trusted source.

Nani (£1.5 million + Sergio Ramos)
Carlos Tevez (£40 million)
Buffon (£21 million)

Angel Di Maria, although he supports man Utd there's no chance United would pay £40million + £175 k a week for him. Real will pay him £160 k a week, but with the tax systems in both countries he'll take home more in Spain.

In an ideal world Mourinho would like to sign Lampard, Terry, Ashley Cole, Michael Ballack, Essien, Peter Cech, Drogba and Anelka ALL from Chelsea, but realisticly he might just squeeze in Drogba depending on wheather Chelsea get Torres.

Mourinho isn't even going to make a move for Athletico Madrid supporter Torres because he knows he'll just be wasting his time. You don't get to be the best manager in the world bar Sir Alex by wasting your time, do you?

26 May 2010 17:03:01
Ipswich look set to offer 3 million plus midfielder Owen Garvan in an attempt to bring Micheal Chopra to Portaman Road.

With Joe Ledley almost certain to leave Dave Jones could see Owen Garvan as an ideal replacement and on a free aswell.


26 May 2010 17:05:43
There will be no takeover of Liverpool till at least Christmas. This is well known to all at Liverpool f.c. So no more crap please! Benitez knows this and he's waiting on Real, but they only seem to be interested in the Special One! So expect another year of Benitez bllsht. We will have to sell players to buy players, so expect these ins and outs:

Diego Tardelli, Jovanavic, Shaun Wright–Phillips, Joe Cole, Danny Wilson, Jesus Navas, Upson and Arda Turan.

Riera, Benayoun, Mascherano, Skrtel, Degen, Babel, Aurelio, Spearing, Darby and Plessis.



26 May 2010 17:06:56
Any celtic news?


26 May 2010 16:58:47
Rangers are interested in bringing Joe Ledley to Ibrox and taking advantage of the u23 player rule ( nominal fee )


26 May 2010 16:57:36
I work for the arsenal board and there has been several meetings over the past few days regarding the Cesc issue. The player himself want to go to Barcelona but Mr. Wenger wants to keep him. Overall a conclusion has come Cesc will depart Arsenal and join Barcelona after the world cup. During the world cup the two clubs will sort out a fee not ruining the players World Cup performances.

After conceeding defeat to Barcelona we will move for Bordeaux midfielder Gourcouff as an immediate replacement. Regarding the goal keeper issue Lukasz will go out on loan to Blackpool for the season as Arsene still has belief in him. Talks between Arsene and Manuel Almunia will take place in the next couple of weeks as it is crunch time for the Spaniard. If he does leave Fulham's Mark Schwarzer will hopefully come in as a replacement. Arsenal have already contacted Fulham about the possibility of this move.

There are likely to be another two transfers with Simon Kjaer and Pape Diakhate could both come in with Mikael, William and the possibility of Sol leaving as well.


26 May 2010 16:56:13
Best kept secret in Liverpool! Apparently lfc has been takenover sometime ago by some oil tycoon whealthier than the sheiks but have been waiting for Benitez to go and don't want to pay him the 15million estimated.


26 May 2010 16:55:40

To the person who posted the Ellis deal is done.

Ellis apparently met with Murray yesterday but sources say its unlikely the deal will go through.


26 May 2010 16:55:47
Following the news of 'future Sir' Walter signing on with Ally and Kenny, Rangers can now press ahead with transfer plans for the new season.

Already on the way out are Steven Smith (SPL or Championship side) and DeMarcus Beasley (Holland/Germany) and a couple of players will probably follow them out of the door. Kirk 'egg on your face' Broadfoot will leave, probably to an SPL/League 1 side and following him out of the door will also be Andrius Velicka.

David Weir may well be tempted to stay on for another year now that Walter and team have signed on. Ally McCoist will be keen to keep him on as a coach at the end of the season, but with his family still on Merseyside, that's unlikely to happen.

With Birmingham having now signed up Nikola Zigic the Boyd deal looks less and less likely to happen with them, however the chances are that he will still leave. The Liverpool deal with Danny Wilson is dragging on and the news that he won't count as a 'homegrown' player within their squad may scupper the deal. If so, expect Wilson to sign new terms with Rangers and Bougherra to be off–loaded instead with the cash being re–invested in the squad.

Onto transfer targets:

Wallace – Hearts
Kenneth – Dundee Utd
Reynolds – Motherwell

Ledley – Cardiff (compensation not required if he moves to a non–Welsh or English side and probably his only realistic chance of Champions League football)
Driver – Hearts
Conway – Dundee Utd
McArthur – Hamilton

Goodwillie – Dundee Utd

Maybe one or two foreign boys, but we have seen what happens when you rip the Scottish heart out of a Scottish club, (Celtic, ) so Walter and Team will be trying to keep the transfers tartan if possible.


26 May 2010 16:52:32
To the guy that said danny swanson to sign for hearts. There is no chance as he is a diehard hibs fan and would never sign for hearts. There is a possibility that he may sign for hibs this summer or go down south


26 May 2010 16:38:19
Liverpool, chelsea and tottenham keeping their eyes open on chielieni (spelling) as he is uncertain on his future at juve


26 May 2010 16:40:00
Lots of amusing rumours.. In reality Arsenal are likely to sign a keeper, one or two centre backs |& possibly a replacement for Fab, if he departs. As usual we will not know who until they actually sign.

Selling Jobi McAnuff to Blackpool for £500,000.

Liverpool are lining up a 22m pound bid apparently for three manchester city fans..MICAH RICHARDS
, NEDUM ONUOHA AND MICHAEL of the main reasons for this is that they are not in mancinis plans and that because of the new homegrown rule..Liverpool will also sign.MILAN JOVANOVIC, JONJO SHELVEY, WAYNE HENNESY, RAHEEM STERLING(already is selvey)..WILSON is a doubt, now that its only englandand wales that count for the homegrown rule..JUAN MATA, JESUS NAVAS, J.COLE AND ARDA TURAN ARE ALSO TARGETS/RUMOURS.SO IS ADRIANO AND DIEGO TARDELLI.REMEMBER EVERYTHING IVE JUST SAID ARE ALL RUMOURS.DONT GET YOUR HOPES UP

26 May 2010 16:16:48
Doncaster rovers have now missed out on Elliot Ward so now they will turn there attention to Jay DeMerit who is on a free transfer. Ben Burgess is on SOD's Radar but it is more likely he will make a bid for Brett Pitman and Chris Dagnall. Tom Kennedy will join very, very soon he has been offered a contract. Oh and i forgot Marlon Harewood has been seen at the Keepmoat and has been offered a contract, he has let his agent sort all of that out so it may be that he doesn't join because our low wages.

And to the leeds fan who said we have a garden shed as a stadium 1–0 AT WEMBERRRRLLEEEYYY it took you a few years to get here and now you are your going straight back down. Oh and Thanks for the 6 points this season.


26 May 2010 16:19:37
Westbrom are looking into a few forward options and hope too land atleast two of them this summer..

mohammed tchite of racing santander is deffinetly on the cards.the player himself has admitted to wanting to move to england so all tht needs to be thrashed out is a deal between the 2 clubs.
another forward westbrom are looking at is james beattie.beattie only has 1 year remaining on his stoke contract n is keen to move on after a bust up with pulis last season meant he only played abit part.sanli tuncay has also been talked about but stoke may opt to keep the turk this season despite him not bein overly happy at the brittania stadium.
the next forward i no is on the westbrom radar is everton forward victor anichebe.its widely expected tht if david moyes signs a new front man then victor will be surplus to requirements and available for around 3.5 million.
the last forward i no of is boro forward jeremie aliadiere.despite his stop start season last year and often finding himself deployed to the right mid role, dan ashworth as been keeping tabs on the french man and could make a bid soon.strachan wants to build his own squad and is desperate to offload players to bring in his own and could allow jeremie to leave 4 as little as 1 million!

spanish international defender pablo ibanez will be westbrom second signing of the season after g.tamas.he will sign on a free transfer in the next few days.


26 May 2010 16:03:28

I have been told from a source at pride park that nigel clough is planning a massive swoop for emile sinclaire and hamza bencheriefe who play for macclesfield. also on nigel's radar is a replacement for robbie savage, tadgh purcell from darlingon, as clough wants him out of the club because he is a danger to his job


26 May 2010 16:09:12
Now logically thinking on a arsenal perspective,
cesc said this morning he had a long emotional conversation with wenger and wenger told cesc to leave it in his hands so basically cesc has said e wants to leave n wenger has said ok let me do the negotiating, cesc will 80% leave but its not a bad thing for arsenal fc. wenger will not be stupid and let ny1 else leave because it will just de stabalise the first team, out of the money he has (45 million) and the cesc money ( 35+ million) he will sign 4 maximum of established players. expect a replacement for cesc, prob gourcuff cos 18 million def mates with nasri and chamack. expect 2 defenders 1 to slot straight away with tommy v and another to compete with djourou. that leaves wenger with the decision of either a goalkeeper ( which i fink every gooner will say yes please to) of another typical wenger unknown singing who is ny bodys guess


26 May 2010 16:09:23

26 May 2010 15:53:12
Moores is a liar, he took eight million pounds extra, he fabricated problems with DIC so he could sell to the yanks.

He's trying to curry favour amongst reds once more, but he won't

Lfc have been taken over in all but name, the deal is going through D.D. And barring the problems of hicks trying to gain more money then it should be done and dusted officially soon.

Graham hunter commented on the situation with jose, jose himself said he will take a holiday, I just reported that said suitors would try to court jose into taking over at anfield whilst he enjoyed his "holiday"

Jf92, you sir are a moron, grow a pair..

Mr Broughton


26 May 2010 15:55:08
Could everyone stop with the Higuain rumours. There is no chance any team are gonna prise away a player who has just matched a 80m player for goals are they?

Utd rumours.

I have heard that Utd are tying up the loose ends in a deal for Steven Defour. Details of when he is to come is unclear with possible 6 month loan back to Liege to give him time playing again after injury. This signing is not the 1 player Saf was talking about buying this summer but is a precationary deal with the prospect of Liverpool gaining interest in him after signing his team mate Jovanovic.

The big signing we are all speculating on looks most likely to be either Silva, Van Der Vaart or Pienaar. Most probable will be Pienaar as cost will be lower and is already established EPL player.

We should of went for Sneijder when he went for a snip at 15m last year but i think Saf was being stubborn and didn't want to give Real any of the 80m Ronaldo money back. He will be out of our reach cost wise now unfortunatly.


26 May 2010 16:00:13

Swindon fan here..

Can understand why people want to link Charlie 'God' Austin to every club in the Premiership/Championship.

Fact is that he's going nowhere..IF Swindon get promoted.

Billy Paynter is leaving for Doncaster or Barnsley, and Phil Smith is leaving as he wants 1st team football. Have heard that Brighton want him but no firm bids as yet.

If Swindon are promoted expect bids for Billy Mehmet, Craig Conway, Ross Forbes, Peter Enckelman, Colin Coates, Lewis Stevenson, Guliem Bauza, Stephen Dobbie, Rob Edwards, Albert Adomah and Ben Burgess.


26 May 2010 15:46:17
Barnet FC are expected to announce Dean Holdsworth as their manager in the next few days. He is expected to bring from Newport County with him, Craig Reid, Paul Bignot and Dave Gilroy for a combined fee of £300,000.

Albert Adomah will leave Barnet and heard to either Blackpool, or more likely Norwich City or Charlton Athletic on a free transfer. His wages may be a stumbling block as he wants £6,000 a week, twice the amount Barnet were recently willing to offer him in order to stay at Underhill.

Other players Holdsworth will try and buy are;
Aaron Lescot (loan) from Bristol Rovers
Michael Townsend (free)
Matt Jansen (£50,000) from Leigh Genesis

Paul Furlong will retire this summer and Joe Devera, Kenny Gillet, John O'Flynn, Daniel Leach and Joe Tabiri will all be allowed to leave the club, if suitable offers from other clubs are made. O' Flynn is a free transfer and is expected to move to either Yeovil Town or Carlise United.
Ismail Yakubu has already been released, althogh Dean Holdsworth has still not officially be named manager.


26 May 2010 15:47:51
Latest from inside the Emirates

GK – Wenger has at long last realised we have struggled for last 5 – 6 years with second rate keepers. The talk is that Sebastian Frey will sign in the next 10 – 14 days. Almunia will initially be No 2 and Fabianski given a chance out on loan.One will be shown the door in the January window.
Defenders – Gallas, Silvestre, Senderos all going on frees, and Campbell unlikely to sign a new deal – leaving just Vermaelen and Djourou with Song able to fill in.
It has been decided that Baptista and Shawcross are the ideal replacements. This still leaves us short of cover at right back, but no moves are lined up at this time.
Defencive Midfield – Eastmond will go on loan (possibly at West Ham). Marco Sanna is being touted as cover if Song is injured, reasted or used in central defence.
Attacking Midfield – The feeling is that Cesc will give us one more season – but he has not guaranteed that to AW. Although not currently a central midfielder AW will make a big effort to sign Edin Hazard – with the idea of loaning him back to Lille, at least until January. if Cesc stays.
The squad at tjhe start of 10/11 seasom:
GK – Frey, Almunia, Mannone, Szczesny
Def – Sagna, Baptista, Vermaelen, Clichy, Shawcross
Djourou, Shawcross, Gibbs
DM – Song, Senna
AM – Walcott, Cesc/Hazard, Arshavin, Rosicky, Ramsey, Eboue, Diaby, Denilson
S – van Persie, Chamahk, Bendtner, Eduardo

The ability to score goals is retained, and with these proposed signings we should concede less.


26 May 2010 15:48:12
I work near the Leicester City Football ground and have seen Lee Carsley standing outside the main entrance for around 5 minutes


26 May 2010 15:17:41
Can I just ask how all you people seem to know more about a takeover than players, ex players, manager, media an David moores??

We aren't close to being taken over, tom hicks did an interview for the Dallas star an said he THINKS we MIGHT be sold in 12–18 months not by the June 1st.

1 big signing and 1 big sale this season and sadly not the sale of the club
jf92 YNWA!


26 May 2010 15:17:43
To the daft that said robins is going to the keepmoat don't make me laugh!! barnsley may not be the biggest of clubs but they are bigger than doncaster rovers. we have spent more seasons in the championship then any other club this is the highest you have ever been? we have the 32nd richest man in the uk as a chairman? i have nothing against donny but am slightly pied off wi them daft comments about robins. bigger stadium bigger fanbase more money more potential?
on a serious notei very much doubt we will get beattie on loan. but riordan and goodwillie are intrested in joining up with the reds


26 May 2010 15:22:29



26 May 2010 15:23:09
Arsenal will only make 2 further signings during this transfer window. Simon Kjaer from Palermo for £10million and Felipe Melo from Juventus for £12–14million. Fabregas will stay for 1 more season.


26 May 2010 15:25:14
Aidy boothroyd is set to make Hamid Bouazza his 1st coventry signing after being released by blackpool. there is also reports that amdy faye who was released by stoke has been spotted at the coventry training centre.


26 May 2010 15:11:25
Birmingham on the other hand want a quality striker, goalkeeper, central midfielder, left winger and a left back. The goalkeeper is a done deal with Ben Foster joining for £6m, while Nikola Zigic is as good as done at another £6m. The left back sees Paul Konchesky as McLeish's no. 1 choice, and with 12 months left on his current deal the Scot is hoping for a cheap £4m bid acception. CM sees Dalil Benyahia a top target with the Swedish–Algerian's great performances of late in the Allsvenskan and a fee of £3m being talked about. Finally in left wing it is no secret that Charles N'Zogbia is wanted, but with an £8m bid rejected, the fee Wigan want is said to be around £14m. So McLeish is said to be turning to a new target and guess who? Aiden McGeady has come forward yet again as a £7m target. McLeish also wants to re–unite with Kris Boyd for £6m, a proven goalscorer and could prove deadly, while a big name, big money signing is also wanted. The man being named is David Bentley in a £10m move.


For a start Boyd is on a Bosman Contract. so 6m? not happening. 0.0M

I highly doubt Bentley will leave Tottenham after a successfull season with Spurs, wants to be part of CL (i would have thought.) Also i don't see where Bentley Could play a part, unless larsson did actually leave for the cockneys or the scum. ( i hope not.)

To add with the Konchesky rumour – Aurelio is now a name being mentioned, though either i wouldn't mind. would mean good competition for Murphy if he returns fit, though a loan has been mentioned to regain fitness. But in my opinion Ridgewell ( i have been harsh on in the past) has had a great season at left back, whether Mcleish plans to use him as a Covering CB/LB i don't know but i wouldn't write him off. as if he sorted out his all to regular mistakes at the back could lead to him being a good centre half.

Dalil Benyahia – I don't know this player. Stats?


Ben Foster (GK) – 5M

Enric Vialles (RM/LM) – Free

Also.. RUMOURS, except Zigic (99% Done)

Zigic – Flown into Brum last night, expect announcement soon.

O'hara – Has been mentioned for around 6.5M
(would be a top signing)

Nicky Maynard – has been mentioned, but still unrpoven would be a gameble, a figure of around 3M

Nadir Belhadj – From Portsmouth 2M

Bougherra – Rangers Around 3–4M

Bromsgrove Brummie :)


26 May 2010 15:11:58
West Ham United are set to announce the signing of Everton forward Yakubu in the next few days for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £5million


26 May 2010 15:13:53
Rafas top targets are Giampaulo Pazzini, Stephen Ireland and Juan Mata, James Milner, Wayne Hennessy and Aleksandar Kolarov however these targets are what he had planned when he was asking for a budget of around £60million + sales , he has since had to alter his targets as there is a current lack of investment his targets are now Diego Tardelli, John Arne Riise, Stephen Ireland, Milan Jovanovic, Wayne Hennessey and Joe Cole i'm not saying these players will be at Liverpool next season i'm just saying they are Rafa's targets , lets hope investment comes in soon and he can get his first choices however if investment does come in they mwy not want him as manager so a different set of players would come with a different manager, I expect Riera, Benayoun, Babel, Aurelio, Degen, El Zhar, San Jose, Nemeth, Itandje and Cavalieri all to be leaving the club, Gerrard and Torres will stay however Mascherano might leave if Barcelona don't get Fabregas so lets hope they do , Rafa is looking at two potential replacements for Mascherano Javi Martinez and Ever Banega obviously only one of them will be coming in.


26 May 2010 15:14:20
Chelsea are waiting in wings on a number of targets. They are waiting for Real Madrid and City to kick off their summer spending sprees and are not willing to spend over the odds for anyone aside from Torres if he becomes available. However they will not break their wage structure. There list of targets include the following: No defenders are being considered although Darijo Srna(Shaktar) who is a RM can play at RB. In midfield Yaya Toure, Kaka, James Milner are the main targets but others may enter the frame depending on price and availability.However if Torres and Aguero are signed no midfield player will be signed as Carlo will revert back to the diamond pairing Torres with Drogba with Aguero in the hole. Ideally Ancellotti would like to sign a DM to release Essien to play in a more advaned role but this is not his top priority.There will be very little activity until after the WC with the exception of Ballacks new 2 yr contract on reduced wages and Bellettis departure. Joe Coles future will not be decided until after the WC provided he goes when he will be offered a take it or leave deal. They may be offered as makeweights in any possible deals. Anelka will sign a new deal following WC. Maximum of 3 players will sign. Deco, Carvalho, Paulo Ferreira, Belletti will all leave with the possibility of Joe Cole to follow. While offers will be considered for Kalou and Mikel. Qusetion marks remain over mancienne, sinclair and Franco di Santos futures. They may be given 12 months to stake a claim. Various youths will be promoted to the first team. Talk of any big name departures is fantasy talk. Essien, Ashley Cole, Lampard will all remain as Roman is eager to mount a serious assault on the Champions League next season.


26 May 2010 15:08:06
Ellis deal is done and boyd is staying with rangers aswell as sir davie weir . you heard it here first . watp

Boyd – Newcastle, Kayerispor (Turkey), Birmingham.
Beasley, Smith –Free
Novo – Sporting Gijon ( done deal )
Broadfoot – Blackpool

Davie Weir will probably sign a one year contract extension.


Webster ( returns from Loan spell at Dundee Utd ).
McArthur ( Hamilton )
Goodwillie ( Dundee Utd )
Lovenkrands ( Newcastle )


26 May 2010 15:04:36
I've heard that Benayoun is moving to Chelsea not because of CL football or issues with Benitez, but because of issues with the board.

Due diligence for the takeover has been completed and the deal will be confirmed somewhere between in 5 days to 2 weeks.

The new owners are from the Middle East. It is one of Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum or Qatar Investment Authority.

Thus, due to the friction between the Middle East and Israel, Benayoun feels compelled to leave to avoid any possible conflict between him and the new owners.


26 May 2010 15:00:28
To the idiot that has said that liverpool are on the verge of administration either a man u fan or a blue nose, getting takenover in the next few weeks and we are £327 million in dept the yanks picked up over £700 million between them selling the baseball teams and hockey team. so if we go into debt wouldn't they miss out on the 200 million they spent on the club? don't post silly things mate.

Mascherano To Real
Yossi to Chelsea
Milner to Liverpool
Higuin to Liverpool
Joe Cole to Liverpool
Taiwo to Liverpool

Takeover to be announced first week of june


26 May 2010 14:54:07
Know someone who works at the training ground.

Last day of season Fabianski said his farewells to all the staff (not sure but think this a loan out)

Also talks of a left back off to Barcelona!! this apparently is more or less a guaranteed thing, so the rumours of Clichy going could be true!!


26 May 2010 14:56:28
Any news on rangers fc


26 May 2010 14:58:24
Chelsea to land Mesut Ozil from Werder Bremen in £20million deal before world cup. Will be joined by very useful squad members in Benayoun and Kirkland before abramovich sanctions monster move for Kaka–£40million plus Carvalho. Other outs include J Cole, Deco, Hilario, Belletti and possibly Ballack.


26 May 2010 14:46:23
Just some info on certain departures and possible departures from Arsenal – Henry, Adebayor, Cesc and Clichy all have the same agent in David Diens son and he has an agenda to upset Arsenal after his Dad's unsavoury outsting, Wenger has banned this guy from Arsenal due to his way of unsettling the players . so expect Cesc and Clichy to leave in the not so distance future


26 May 2010 14:47:31
Nottingham Forest

Forest have agreed a fee with Swansea for Darren Prately and are hoping to discuss personal terms in the next few weeks.

Peter Whittingham will arrive in a cash plus Nathan Tyson deal.

Next up will be the free transfer of January target Wilfred Bouma.

That will be followed up by a bid for Tommy Spurr who was set to join in January but opted to stay with Sheff Wed and help with their relegation battle.

An as yet named Premiership CB is also within reach.

On the down side a deal for a Premiership striker looks to have fallen through due to wage demands and guarantees.


26 May 2010 14:47:37
Liverpool on verge of Administration.

This will only be avoided if 2 of Torres, Mascherano and Gerrard are sold.

The storm clouds are gathering over Anfield.

Other Liverpool news could see the attempt to Sign Danny Wilson from Rangers fall through, as the FA class players from abroad (non–english or 3 of the welsh teams in FA) as not home grown.

Spartak Moscow have tabled a £10million bid for McGeady, Celtic have accepted but Aiden has said no. He wants to go to EPL an Birmingham, Liverpool and Arsenal are belived to be weighing up an offer. Samaras is leaving next summer so he can leave on a free transfer. Celtic accepted an offer of £3million but Samaras is not leaving, Celtic trying to arange a larger slice of the transfer fee. If he leaves Gary Hooper will be brought in for £2.6million from Scthorpe. Celtic have bid £800k for Darren Ambrose who is seriously interested so he can win trophies instead of punting around the lower Championship. McManus is off to Middlesbrough for £2.5million and Celtic to sign Ivan Ramis for £3million.
Lennon to stay as Interim First team Coach until Mowbray resigns or his 1 year rolling contract ends.

"Real Madrid are looking to offer Benzema, Van der Vaart and Sneijder for the England International."

That'll be hard, Sneijder, the last time i checked played for Inter.

Onto some SAFC rumours:

Angeleri and Boselli for a combined £9 million.
N'zogbia will make dramatic switch and reunite with Steve Bruce – £8 million.
Expect a bid for Gregory Van der Wiel is on the cards – £5.5 million.
Bruce has also sent scouts throughout the season to look at Simon Mignolet from the Belgian Jupiler league, he is a Belgian Under–21 International.
Then Sunderland will round off the summer with a double swoop for Martin Petrov and Nedum Onouha of Manchester City.


26 May 2010 13:58:38
To the idiot who wrote this:
"Rooney rumoured to be leaving Manchester United for a swap.
Real Madrid are looking to offer Benzema, Van der Vaart and Sneijder for the England International."

For 1 you obviously don't watch football or support a decent team in the CL, because Sneijder plays for Inter Milan!
Rooney is worth more than those players together anyway.

Man United: Carrick (sold) and some youngsters out on loan.

Mertasacker + another cheap experienced CB if campbell leaves
Chamakh (done)

Im an Arsenal fan who hopes these will happen.
And i don't see why other gunners want Rob Green, he isn't even that good, 4th best in England.

A rumour concerning any Leeds fans out there.

Sylvan Ebanks–Blake has been given the option to join Leeds as the club have come to an agreement on a figure for the striker, but they are now leaving the decision down to the player.

Wolves have lined up quite a coup in the striking department, so Ebanks–Blake is only likely to feature off the bench next season.

As a Wolves fan I don't want to see him go, but I wouldn't blame him as first team football is his priority.


26 May 2010 13:53:22
Elliot ward to sheff utd also tom kennedy, tony capaldi


26 May 2010 13:48:37
I was on a tour of The Emirates and saw Charlie George there.
Do you think he's signing for Arsenal?
Onto more serious stuff, Fabregas will go eventually but it will run right up to the end of transfer window. Better players have left and the club is still here. Nasri will replace him in his role.
Cahill coming in but for no more than £10m plus Wilshere on loan, also Rob Green as GK.
A versatile defender/def midfielder is being seeked also, possibly Sakho.
One more potential departure.Clichy!


26 May 2010 13:49:02

Thanks james 007 an mr broughton for all the lies over the last month, your probly hicks an gillete gettin a kick out of making us Liverpool fans suffer even more.
Talks with zigic an Birmingham will break down shortly over wages, Liverpool are interested but due to our interest in him everton will attempt to sign him. Masch will leave even if a takeover was somehow completed. Gerrard WILL leave unless England win the WC as there will only be one cup
missing from his trophy room, he will give it another two years until moving to who ever is winning the league during the 2011/12 January transfer window. Neither juan mata or navas will join. No j.cole, no higuian, no vdv, no kjaer it's jus going to go further downhill for us

Biggest summer of our history, please get the yanks out as soon as possible, apparently the deal is done with QIA and due dilligence is in progress, the only spurning points are the hicks contract with the new stadium probem as he's charging double for the steel


26 May 2010 13:20:00
Manchester United –

My source close to the club tells me that a move for David Silva of Athletico Madrid is closing in. The fee seems to be around £20 million + Anderson.

West Ham –

Have a friend who plays for the academy, said he saw Luca Toni and also LUKE CHADWICK (yer I know) at the training ground today.

Toni is said to be signing as Bilic is front runner to take over as manager next season and Chadwick is prepared to be a bench warmer as he is still eager to play in the prem since leaving Man U.

Cardiff will be losing Matthews, plenty of interest from Premier with Villa looking most likely. There will NOT be a mass fire sale at Cardiff. Expect one or, at tops, two from Chops, Bothroyd, Ledley, Whittingham & Gerrard to be sold. Again, plenty of Prem & Championship interest with opening bids already in place for Bothroyd & Whitts, both of which tuned down.

Cardiff, however WILL be bank rolled (Not in the Man CIty/Chelsea mould) and all of Dave Jones targets have been given the green light to start bidding. A third attempt to lure Kris Boyd is the pipeline. Also expect more raids North of the border.


26 May 2010 13:03:06

26 May 2010 12:42:04
A lot of apathy at the moment with PNE fans because of the HMRC issue and nothing coming from the board, and season ticket prices going up on 1st June.

I can try and appease fans for now – the reason prices are going up is because the Hemmings takeover will be confirmed on June 1st, along with Derek Shaw's leaving the club. Season ticket prices will go up but with a new direction for the club. They are deliberately not giving any info because they want fans to buy the tickets with the belief that a promotion push will be on the cards – at a higher price!

Sneaky marketing and planning if you ask me, but the fact is the club will be run be the man who most money is owed to, negating this. He will fund a mini–spree, with the aim of getting to the Premiership by 2012 – and then getting his money back on investment.

Shaw may remain as a minority shareholder, not sure about this though.

Players? All listed have had enquiries, but two of these – Elliott and Carter, are struggling to attract serious offers. Expect Mellor and Chaplow to leave late June, as clubs save on paying the extra wages. I don't know the teams interested for sure, although Leeds and Coventry have been mentioned.

Finally, Nugent will NOT be returning, and neither will Welbeck. Targets for Ferguson though are Dawson of Rochdale and Ian Harte of Carlisle. Billy Paynter of Swindon is another target but it depends on the play–off result whether that goes any further.


26 May 2010 12:30:08

Arsenal are interested in 1899 Hoffenheim attacking midfielder Carlos Eduardo.

The brazilian has impressed in the bundesliga this season and hopes that a move to the Emirates can help push him into the Brazilian squad. Wenger

The signing fee is expected to be around £6m (7 million euros) but could rise to £10m (11m euros) depending on Arsenal's success in the Champions League.


26 May 2010 11:57:44

Have 2 BIG BIG sources within Charlton Athletic and can confirm the addicks have agreed a fee of 300k for Southend Captain and centre half Simon Francis. Tamika Mkandawire (spelling) will also come in at the back further to his release from Orient despite an impressive season namely his mom performance in a 1–0 victory at the Valley. Also Joe Anyinsah will join on a free. The Carlisle left winger has stated his desire to come back south and Charlton will fill that position further to Kyel Reid's loan expiry. Stuart Fleetwood will join Gillingham for a minimal fee and Miguel LLera is touted as a 200k target for newcomers Bournemouth. Nicky Bailey is not going anywhere and will captain the side next season.

26 May 2010 10:53:04
Wenger knows that he urgently needs to address his defence. He will bring in a goalkeeper and CB. Joe Hart is his number one choice but is hugely unlikely to see a move accepted due to Mancini's willingness to keep hold of the player. Should Hart demand a move to be 1st choice and increase future England chances then maybe the transfer could be on the cards. If not Wenger/Gazidis are looking at Lloris of Lyon for 9mil or Frey of Fiorentina for 7mil with Fabianski and possibly Almunia leaving. Silvestre and Senderos will leave as expected with Simon Kjaer coming in from Palermo for 8mil. Any other signings depends on Gallas' decision. Should the Frenchmen not get his request of 80k a week for 2 years, Christian Zapata or Mertesacker are options, Gary Cahill is severly overpriced with Coyle wanted in excess of 15mil.

The Fabregas saga is likely to be a lengthy one, Cristiano Ronaldo to Madrid springs to mind! Expect a fee to be agreed in the region of 45mil Euros. With Merida departing aswell Arsenal will look to sign 21 year old CM Herrera from Real Zaragoza for 3.5mil and possibly either Dos Santos 6mil (spurs) or Gourcuff 13mil Bordeaux.

26 May 2010 10:38:10

Wenger was never interested in Gouffran you plank – he is still interested in GOURCUFF. 2 different players with 2 very different styles – if you're going to claim to be the "man in the know" you need to get the basics right.

Wenger will not spend an unprecedented amount on a huge no. of players. If the suspected departees are correct (Silvestre, Senderos, Gallas, Merida (confirmed) and possibly Campbell) Wenger will buy 2 defenders and possibly Gourcuff IF (and that's a big if) Cesc or Rosicky goes – Merida won't be replaced as he was a benchwarmer – THAT'S IT.

Kjaer £12m – expect him very soon due to buy–out clause
Cahill – £14m at most – Wilshere season long loan to secure the deal

Wenger knows what he's doing but will be diplomatic and quieter than how the pornographers at West Ham operate.

26 May 2010 10:47:39
Crystal palace are set to be taken over by millionaire fan consortium CPFC2010. The clubs first move will be to bring in swindons Danny Wilson as Manager. They will fund the replacements of clint hill and darren ambrose who have both departed to QPR. As well as offering new deals to jonny ertl and danny butterfield. Wilson's first signing will be Charlie Austin from his former club.


26 May 2010 10:15:06
Steven Pienaar will not be leaving Everton for £15m as mentioned earlier on this site, his contract is up next year, end of 10/11 season, and talks have stalled regarding a new contract. This is why his agent has come out and said Everton have 3 weeks to sort it out or else he'll look elsewhere. The fee will be around £5m which is still a fair amount for a player with less than 12 months to run on his contract.

His prefered choice is to stay at Everton, he loves the club and the fans, who also love him.

Other possible destinations are Manchester United who are in need of a new left sided option with a bit of creativity and Spurs who seem to be linked with left sided players all the time although with Kranjcar, Modric and Bale all playing there, admittedly all not natural positions, it seems a rather pointless signing

There will be new signing especially in defence as this is the weak part of the team.

Next season Lenny will take over as manager.

Lennon said if he doesn't get the job he won't be back. And not enough experiance the guy won 8 games on the trot encluding walter smiths rangers. Neil Lennon knows celtic inside out and knows what an old firm is all about and what it means to the fans.

Forest looking to splash the cash early this summer, will look to move Whittingham close to his home in the midlands with a £3mill bid. We've had to accept with money problems but don't expect him to move quickly as he wants to keep his options open for as long as possible in the hopes a Prem side will offer him regular football.

I know Peter from corporate functions around the club, and he's not interested in bench warming, even for a massive wage increase, so don't be surprised if Forest do offer him the highest wages along with a guaranteed starting berth, and being from just outside Coventry, I hear he's listening to what Forest have to say very closely.

And before the ducks down the road start gloating, I hear from the same source that Pratley is also in talks with them about the move he's wanted since January. He says in fact that deals very close, despite Prem interest, whereas Whittingham is only in talks.

It looks like Chops will be heading to Scotland to one of the Old Firm at the moment, both have expressed an interest, but only Rangers have made a cash offer up front so far, so he may still be wearing blue this season.

Depressingly, no news AT ALL on incoming players yet, but with the clubs league next season only just confirmed, that's not too surprising, so keep the faith boyos


26 May 2010 09:39:47
Evertons possible ins and outs this season

Pienaar – 15m (Almost definate: no less than 15m)
Yakubu – 7–9m (Almost definate)
Jutkivitz – 1–2m (Almost definate)
Yobo – 3–4m (certain)
Ruddy – 1.5m (certain)
Vaughan – 1m (certain)
Mikel Arteta 20–25m (Highly Unlikely)

Beckford – FREE (Almost definate)
Bellamy – 8m (highly likely)
Joao Moutinho – 6m (possible)
Onouha – 5m (possible)
Donovan – 5m (maybe)
Stephen Hunt – 4m (maybe)
Zamora – 8m – (maybe)
Charlie Adam – 6m (highly unlikely)
Eduardo – ? – (highly unlikely)

Watch out for the Mikel Arteta one though as if Man City bid for a 3 player swap with SWP, Bellamy and Onouha then it is possible.


26 May 2010 09:33:40
Luton Town have accepted 2 bids for star striker Tommy Craddock:

Scthorpe total £100k plus add ons

Luton are doing the deal this way as when they bought him from Middlesborough for £80k there was a 25% sell on clause agreed which cannot be taken from add ons.
The add ons will total to another £100k.

Arsenal rumours

Wenger said another 1 or 2 players will come in for sure, when he said this, I think he assumed Fabregas d Campbell will stay. But apparently, it is very unlikely that Fabregas and Campbell will stay.

Arsenal will sign Per Mertesacker and Gary cahill. Gallas, Campbell will leave.

Arsenal will sign Yoann Gourcuff. Gourcuff is so talented and he will also be playing with Chamakh again. Fabregas and Merida will leave.

According to Arsenal's buying style, I think 3 players will be the maximum.


26 May 2010 08:32:23

Jovanovic – (free) done

Raul Gonzalez – (free) 100%

Jan Vertonghen – (12 mil) 95%

Thomas Müller – (swap) 65%

Scott Parker/James Milner/Matt Taylor/David Bentley/Stephen Ireland – benitez will try 2 sign any 1 of these players only if Macherano leaves Liverpool has limited budjet


Ryan Babbel – Bayern München (swap/10 mil) 88% 2 happen

Macherano – Barcelona ( 25 mil+player on loan) only if toure leaves 93% 2 happen

Riera – don't know where ( asking price 6.5 mil).

Will update if there is anymore buildup


26 May 2010 08:42:20

Blackpool are holding talks with Micael Owen! Seen him yesterday walking into Bloomfield Road discretely. Up the pool!

But i can say on the beckford front he is still in the plans but if his agent don't change his ways then KB has said go else were and become a bench warmer


26 May 2010 04:33:59

As usual lots of rumours circulating, mostly inaccurate of course. I have some confidential inside information to share :


Wenger will only buy a maximum of 4 first team players this summer. So those of you wishing / suggesting 5+ signings are off the mark.

Players being discussed by the the BOARD and Ivan Gazidis as we speak from my understanding.

1. Shwarzer (Fulham GK) 2 –3 Million
2. Cahill (Bolton CD) MAX 14 Million
3. Wright–Phillips (Man City RM) 6 Million
4. Scott Parker (West Ham CM) 5 Million
5. Zapata (CD) 10 Million+
6. Frey (GK) 8–10 Million
7. Hazard (Playmaker) 15 Million

One or two others also in the frame which I have not been able to verify yet.

PLEASE STOP the silly rumours such as :

1. Yaha Toure (never wanted by Wenger since 2003)

2. Buffon ( World class but wages are simply too high for Arsenal and aged 32)

3. Gouffran (lots of potential but Wenger never pursued him formally years ago when he was cheaper)

4. Lloris (good GK, but now too expensive.)

5. Richards ( Wenger refused to buy him 3 years ago as he saw limited potential)

These 7 players listed..only some of them will come.

Liverpool fans can relax today Jose Mourinho does not want to bring Steven Gerrard to the Bernabau that was just papers pouncing because they see Liverpool had a bad season and he tryed to sign him before but Mourinho has apparently said he thinks Real have enough fire power going forward but he wants to add more steel in midfield and left back for left back he wants yeah you guessed it Ashley Cole and for midfield he is looking at Daniele de Rossi and Michael Essien obviously only 1 will sign, there are also rumours he wants to bring Maicon in for right back and tuck Ramos into a centre half role next year, he may sign one striker if Benzema leaves but other than that nothing else is going to happen, the papers are having a frenzy other than those mentioned abovehe has already been linked with J.Cole, Terry, Drogba, Lampard, Mascherano, Torres, Rooney, Vidic, Tevez, Milito, Snjeider and even Julio Cesar despite Real having the best goalkeeper in the world but I expect anyone who is half decent will be linked with City and Real for the next few months.


26 May 2010 05:54:56
Everton's preferred 17 for next season

Howard, Neville, Jagielka, Heitinga, Baines, Donovan, Fellaini, Arteta, Rodwell, Cahill, Saha

subs: Mucha, Distin, Hibbert, Osman, Bilyaletdinov, Anichebe/Beckford

This means only Donovan (6 mill) as a major signing even though Pienaar, Yobo, Vaughan, Nash and Yakubu will leave. Moutinho is a long shot, Bellamy highly unlikely, Onuoha a possibility.

Moyes will only add squad players Mucha, Beckford and Joao Silva .. all sealed already


26 May 2010 06:53:18
Some good news just breaking out for man united fans:– The financial report to be submitted to united's bondholders clearly indicates that the glazer family have not taken money out of the club to pay the PIK. hence united will only pay 43 mil interests to the bondholders this year and no further money will be going out of the club. According to my knowledge i estimate that the glazer family will start paying the PIK loans from their own pockets and channel its interests through their other businesses. that is the the reason they issued a bond and did not refinance through banks as the banks put restrictions on paying their loans off before the PIK. I think the glazer family's confidence indicates that they will be paying off the PIK without taking money out of the club.

26 May 2010 04:21:29
Diego Tardelli is very good freinds with Diego Cavalieri and Rafa likes him as a player a £5million deal should be wrapped up before the world cup, Rafa is trying to settle Cavalieri who hasnt settled in well and wants to leave this summer this may change his mind but if I was Rafa id let him go there are plenty of back up goalkeepers out there.


26 May 2010 04:33:55

Blackpool are looking into the possibility of not only signing Leicester's DJ Campbell but also Andy King and Jack Hobbs. Holloway may even really push the boat out and attempt to sign Robbie Neilson.


26 May 2010 01:16:22
Blackpool will offer Hearts striker Christian Nade a route out of his Tynecastle hell.

Boss Ian Holloway is prepared to offer the French striker a 1 year deal at Bloomfield Road, and Nade may even move on a free transfer due to the ill feeling between himself and the Hearts club board.

Meanwhile, Brett Ormerod will sadly not be among the playing squad at Blackpool – he isn't short of offers though with Burnley, Preston, Hull and Sheffield United keen to sign him.

Nikola Zigic – Micah Richards – Valon Behrami – Matthew Upson – David Bentley – Jesus Navas – Giampaolo Pazzini – Mesut Ozil – Ever Banega – Giuseppe Rossi

FACT : NOT any of those names will join Liverpool .
all of them are Fabricating Stories by CaughtOffside site so stop link Liverpool with them .

Liverpool could be intersted in any of them in reality , no one knows , but all stories about those players in last months are LIES – FACT


26 May 2010 00:13:26
Celtic will name their new management team today with Lenny as assistant now that rangers have announced that Walter Smith will be staying for final season the board are worried about Lennys lack of experience.

There will be new signing especially in defence as this is the weak part of the team.

Next season Lenny will take over as manager.

United to only sign 1 more player this summer, and it'll be an attacking midfielder to link the midfield and attack and to chip in with a few goals. The options are:

Marek Hamsik– a cracking player who is like a young Kaka, loves to get forward and scores often but not shy in the tackle either.

Alexis Sanchez– supposedly the next Ronaldo, but without the arieal threat from set plays but an awsome dribbler.

Stevan Jovetic– an excellent young player with loads of promise, good on the ball and in the air, quick feet and a good footballing brain.

Angel Di Maria– unlikely but a possible swap with Anderson +cash, he is a huge Man Utd fan, also people have got it around the wrong way United are standing aside so Madrid can sign Silva and Madrid aren't going to bid for Di Maria(Madrid could do with spanish players to keep up with the rules in spain which is similier to the one that will be brought in in england).

No striker will be signed as we have Rooney Owen Berbatov Hernandez Macheda Welbeck Diouf. Take into consideration Evans Smalling Fabio Rafael Gibson Obertan Pogba and Petrucci we have alot of talented youngsters coming up through the ranks. So sleep well United fans, the futures bright with these youngsters.

Just heard a group saying that Real Madrid are preparing to offer Man U a cash+Benzema deal to land Rooney. Money won't be a problem for Madrid, so they are prepared to offer up as much as Man U asks for. This deal should go down before the World Cup.
