'There's three large investors groups looking at clubs with potential from the Middle East / South America. 1 Cardiff 2.Sheffield Wednesday 3. Newcastle Utd 4.Leicester City.'

Won't be Cardiff as they are going to be sold to Vincent Tan, hence the recent investment there by Dato Chan Ghee.

All of the other three look likely to be bought out in the future – although Fatty Ashley will want £100m when Newcastle are promoted. Lee Strafford wants investors in at Hillsborough and Leicester may need a new chairman if Mandaric ends up doing porridge.


Arsenal to make moves for Sorensen and Upson/Shawcross. Funded by sale of Senderos.


Sheffield United to sign Sean St.Ledger from P.N.E., Aaron McLean from Peterborough Utd and David Healy from Sunderland in the january transfer window.


Big rumours ive been hearing only recently is liverpool are making enquiries about rangers inform striker chris boyd? Rafa has admited the need for players to move on who want to play in the world cup especially dossena and babel who would generate the most money i reckon 10 mil for the pair followed by degen and voronin another 3–4 mil for them, there will definetly be two signings in jan a forward and wide player expect the deals to be done straight away and if we get decent money for the rejects a late bid for someone else.

Charlie adam to make a 1.7M move to the clarets BFC in Jan

also Robbie Keane to join Man City for 5M


Any bristol city news please


RE the bit of banter about the manager who was caught in a brothel in portsmouth and the last visiting manager in portsmouth was. This really is a case of 2 + 2 = 5.
Nobody thought of Avram Grant?

Arsenal transfers. The deal for Chellini was done last summer as Juve still owe a baulk of the Paddy V transfer money. He has also offered serious money for Giovincio (Italys next baggio)which Juve have declined. There is only one striker Wenger wants and that's Chamakh, anything else you read is sheer nonsense. Paddy V to sign a short term deal with Arsenal before retiring to set up an academy in Senegal.


Fulham to make move for Robbie Keane.


Cardiff city rumours please!!!!!!!!!


Jose mourinho to liverpool in the summer, rafa benitez to be sacked in january, with kenny dalglish taking over on a temporary basis. liverpool fc will be sold within the next 3 months, favourite is the prince as he and his family want full control. expect a new stadium to be built and finished within the next 3 years. And mourinho will be givena hefty 50 million to spend and that's without sales.good times ahead if your a red man..All this on good authority and im not even a liverpool supporter. I would be very concerned if i supported man utd... .


Arsene Wenger is looking at Cisse of panathinikos to fill the void up top.


Lets get 1 thing clear Torres will not leave Liverpool, read the El Nino book! He states he loves the fans and club, they make him feel special! He says a career defining momment for him is when he heard the Torres song for the first time! So please stop posting useless posts about him leaving. If he wanted to leave he could have left last season. He knows that Liverpool are going through a rough patch and things will get better soon. Gillett has been informed by Merrill Lynch (Bank) he needs to sell as he is in trouble with his business investments. Therefore expect Prince Faisal to stump out the cash very soon. Gillett has missed payments on his US assets and is in deep financial trouble hence him selling the Canadian Ice Hockey team. Elsewhere Rafa will be staying but will be receiving only a small amount of money to reinvest in Jan. rumours are the Arabs want another manager at the helm in summer as they feel Rafa has lost the team and dressing room. The players led by Stevie G may also revolt if the rot continues....Let me make one thing clear at this momment whoever takes over at LFC knows that the management do not sack managers straight away they give time and support.
Finally expect LFC to shop in the bargain basket as they are waiting for investors, so expect big signing in summer, Ruud Van Nistelroy very likely, any cheap players defo. Big rumour depending on Arabs is that Mourinho straight swap with Rafa. Rafa has got the continental know how for Inter to win the Champs League which Inter are despo for. Rival fans may say Mourinho not at LFC but read Carras book he says Mourinho used the same agent as Bruno Cheyrou and he had the LFC club badge on his phone. So he has strong feelings for LFC but all depends on investment so fingers crossed this happens. Most of my fellow scousers have hit the nail on the head with the bargain basket shopping by Rafa. Final note look at the players they seem to be upset with Rafa so maybe an interim manager may also be installed until end of year and the money freed by the clowns may be used to pay off Rafa. Intriguing times at Anfield. Keep the faith! YNWA should post on here more often amigo, absolutely spot on summary of lfc troubles, moores sat on his hands or should i say wallet[i know the editor agress]parrys dithering has put your club about 3/4 years behind[length of time needed to build stadium].anyhow safc news..adam johnson[boro]rumours up here that deal already done..kenwynne jones to lfc can't see it myself but its doing the rounds so could be true.ferdinand out to anyone who wants him ditto richardson.ins obviously figuera[wigan]and bentley[spurs] alonso

Ryan Babel (7mil)
Andrea Dossena (4mil)
Andriy Voronin (2mil)
Sotiris Kyrgiakos (1mil)
Charles Itjande (free)
Albert Riera (swap)

This money will come from mainly the new sponsorhip deal which will give the club 20mil for the year.


Steven gerard is definately on his way to either barcelona or real madrid in the summer he now knows that he will never win the prem with liverpool and doesn't want to win it with any other english club the yanks are now going to cash in on him and torres they feel they can bank upto £130million for the pair of them to pay of some of the debts this is a bad time for liverpool they will never recover from this they will become a mid table team for the next 20years were as united chelsea arsenal and now man city become the real powerhouses of the prem sad as it is this is all down to the greed and incompetance shown by david moores and rick parry whose disastrous decision to sell to the americans caused all this mess we have stood still in terms of investment since 1990 while other teams have grasped the sky tv money to build better stadiums to generate more income for to buy better players we have come to an impass in the history of the club this will be the defining season and the biggest season in our history because if we don't qualify for the champions league and get new owners then the best players will leave and without them the best players that are available won't want to come here and that is fact its not about being at a big club anymore its about playing in the champions league and that's were the best players will be and if your not in it then you won't have the best players in yor team. from theturdz a worried season ticket holder in the centenary stand


Man utd will not sign villa/silva or anyone else in january whats goin on at OT is martin o' neil will take over this summer he'll then offer villa nani and foster plus 20 to 30 million for young and agbonlahor club have already put a plan in place to sign the Cska keeper di maria from benfica and one other huge transfer i'll leave that up too you lot to say who that's gonna be this will happen and before the drool an the rest of the abu's get in fergie hasn't touched the ronaldo money so that's there fergie's summer money and the 20 or 30 million that o.neil will be givin aprox 150 million players to leave will be nani foster to villa scholes neville (maybe rio)macheda 12 month loan to spain gibson and welbeck 6month to villa tosic and some other fringe players de latte silva twins all get 6 months in the championship jose was a target but he's been lured to real expect too see some big name's linked wit the special one stevie g.torres


Av said quite a few tiimes on here and al say again
fernando torres is moving to chelsea £50million and liverpool will use that money to bring in possibly ( mcgeady, carlton cole, gabby millito) liverpool cannot turn down a monster offer like that for an injury prone striker.. {editor's note – except that City and Chelsea have both made £70 mill offers for him. I don't think even those two idiot yanks would reject 70mill in favour of 50!}


Does anyone have accurate information of transfers in and out of liverpool?


Rafa is planning a 15m raid on west for matthew upson and scott parker by selling ryan babel to munich, doessna to milan and voronin to panathonikas
liverpool will then offer 12m plus riera for juan mata of valencia and a late move has been made for goran pandev (Free Agent) even though he was supposed to be having medical at inter on monday.
If the mata deal fails he will turn to either arda turan (rafas choice) or adien mcgeady (kennys choice)
a move for victor moses is looking Very likely also for 5m only
and a surprise is on the cards im not saying who but lets say it will surely get under fergies skin
all true!


Liverpool out : Torres(100 mill to man city)kuyt(8–12 mill to AC or swap for suarez from ajax) dossena (3–5 mill to napoli) lucas (to AC for 11 mill) babel(to hamburg swap for elia) Liverpool Ins : david villa , david silva and mata(together to cost 65 mill) suarez (maybe part of kuyt deal)elia(from hamburg swap with babel)ruud van nistlerooy(from real for 2mill)


Major sponcership of rep of Ireland domestic leauge with new online social networking site to take over from existing deal and try get an Irish team into the Champions Leauge group stages within 3 years


Ruud Van Nistlerooy to Anfield. The striker is in need of game time as he tries to get a world cup spot in 2010 and Liverpool desperatly need support for Torres. N'gog is improving but isn't no where near it yet. Loving the Van de Vaart rumour and idea of getting rid of Lucas. I want to see his passport, the way he shoots he can't be Brazilian.


First of why do liverpool fans think they have about £40m to spend. Outrageouse Kenwyn Jones, David Silva , Heskey come on all the older generation out their no that liverpool are in financle meltdown and yes the plan is to get players out instead of buying them in, to Raise funds for The considerable amount of debt they are in. Players such as Ryan Babel , Lucas Leiv , Phillip Degan , Dossena and even Albert Reira are on their way out. Babel is being traked by Spurs and latley it has been reported Stoke City owner Peter Coates has agreed to fund his manager Tony Pulis with more than enough money to spend on transfer fee's and Wages for Babel and Dossena. Because Stoke want to take advantage of the current going's on at Liverpool. Stoke may not be Babel's slice of cake but with Liverpool going through hard times they may have to offload and a main advantage of this transfer is that of James Beattie who can be used as part of any deal to take Babel to the midlands. After Rafa declared he is in the market for a target man up top James Beattie can deffinatly fits the Bill. He still has about 2 years left in him and is as Hungry as ever. After his recent bust up with manager Tony Pulis.Most Liverpool fans will say James Beattie what an ambitiouse club we are but with the current money problems this free–bee could turn out to be a cracker.

Well Arsenal to sign 3 player in January.

Mario Bollati from Porto 4 – 5 million Euros.
Jan–Klass Huntallar On Loan (I m not sure about this one) untill the end of the season. Cost of loan will be 2 – 3 million. With the option to buy in the summer.
Carlos Eduardo from Hoffenhaim if the signing of Huntallar does not succeed. The price would be 10 – 14 million euros.
And ''Maybe'' we will see a defender comming soon as well to replace Silvestre. The price for the defender he`s bringing will be between 3 – 9 million.

Wes Brown to Everton is rubbish. Sir Alex see's Wes as an iconic part of Manchester United and has most recently emphasised his importance to the team. DAVID SILVA TO MANCHESTER UNITED – PERIOD! Also to LIVERPOOL FANS – stop linking big name players to your club! Babel will be sold and Mascherano will soon follow.

Anybody have any rumours on chelseaplz plz update....


Anyone know if the so called new "potential investors" were at Anfield yesterday??. Was said a few days ago that they would be at the match as a guest of Gillette.


Blackpool midfielder charlie adam has bought a house on ladybridge lane in bolton ready for the wanderers to meet the 1.25 million figure that will buy him, adam who is by far blackpools highest paid player on 6.5k a week will see his wages quadruple as blackpool are the second lowest wage payers in the championship.


Robbie keane was in glasgow last night, spotted by three or four people, all mentioned the same hotel that they saw him so i believe that this is genuine.
with dermot desmond ready to fund a deal for him, i hope hes ready to ply his trade with the celts.
also, niall mcginn flew straight out of scotland after last nights game, to england somewhere...destination unknown.


The only liverpool rumours i have are benayoun to city with barry and bridge coming to liverpool, rafa is looking to sign both cahill and upson as rafa is not happy with aggers and skrtels form.
Also with spurs interest in babel rafa could look to try and get one of lennon, huddlestone or bentley in the deal. rafa also want to swap reira and 10mill for mata and is looking for target man upfront with beattie, santa cruz, cole, kenwyne jones and heskey all on his list.


Cardiff are putting a bid together for rochdale's wonderkid, will buckley


To the person who wrote this – "BAD NEWS This has been agreed just on wednesday arsenal will get carlton cole, parker, green for a fee of 17.3 million plus philpe sendrous.Sendrous will be to replace upson whose going totenham11.5 million.West ham in:Cudicini 500k, Zamora 6.2 million, john paintsell 5.5 million.coming from a hammer"

You must be joking! Cudicini's badly injured, unlikely to play until end of the current season and didn't Pantsell & Zamora leave you 1/2seasons ago to join a proper team? However, rumours I've heard
Bellamy from ManCity to Spurs £4m+D.Bentley
Sandro from Internacional to Spurs £9m
Hutton and Keane to Sunderland £12m
Pavlyuchenko to Liverpool straight swap with Babel!


""Any rumours regarding hull city nd man united please post. callum""
Dear mr callum,
ngiak has heard a few things over the grapevine the last few weeks about man united. these could be just a reaction to their poor form or the usual gossip prior to the jan window. hatem ben arfa deal seems to be advanced as is neuer or akinfeev. anderson will be more prominent as it will a do or die half season for him. the senegalese miram diouf will be pushed to the frontline as will some other youngsters. on the way out will certainly be nani, he has been very woeful and sir alex has given up hoping. sadly the much vaunted serbian youngsters will both be out, ljajic barely came and tosic will also be shipped out on loan or sold. no big money signings like aguero, villa or even silva. its a season for consolidation. WHY? sir alex has to pass over a clean slate and a coffer full of cash mourinho...


Rafa has had enough of Ryan Babel crying so he will be sent out to Bayer Leverkusen for 8m. The German club are in need of reinforcements in midfield and see Babel as a bargain buy, looking at his age and sell on value. Andrea Dossena wants to return to Italy to save his World Cup dream and Milan are the front runners for his signature. They are prepared to offer 5m for the defender. Ambitious Panathinaikos want to sign two Liverpool squad players in Andriy Voronin and Philipp Degen. They are prepared to offer 7m plus first refusal on Sotiris Ninis in the next 3 transfer windows. That is how ambitious this Greek side are. Now with 20m to spend, Rafa wants to sign a target man and a wide man. Rafa wants Premier League experience to avoid his signings being 'flops', so he has targeted Kenwyne Jones and will bid 10m on the first day of the transfer window, to beat Martin O'Neill to the signing. Arda Turan has declared his love for Liverpool and Rafa has been interested since the summer and will bid 10m to sign him. If Gala tell Liverpool to wait until the summer, Rafa will make an 8m move for Aiden McGeady


At the minute all villa fans are in dream land, you get a few wins a few weeks in the top four and you are assuming you are going to win the league or just finish above Liverpool and arsenal, but look what happened last year, you had a good run, thaught we are going to break into the top 4 and you DIDNT !!! Gareth Barry will not be leaving Man City to return to villa! And you won't sell harewood for 5 mil or shorey for 8, get a grip , just because they have hit a bit of form in the championship doesn't mean they are gonna make mega bucks!
Now for some real rumours, there won't be too many major signings next month because of the world cup, the biggest transfers will be players to Man City, I think they will sign David villa for 40 million paying him 120 grand a week! Expect bids for the following inter players as mancini likes them; cordoba Samuel ballotelli, maicon julio cesar and stankovic!! Not all of them will come off but I think 3 of them will along with David Villa
Arsenal will sign a striker possibly chamakh, or mladen petric as wenger was quoted saying how he adored him! And he could partner his fellow countryman eduardo !
Chelsea are bluffing about not signing anyone . Expect a bid for aguero or carlton cole.
United will look to strengthen at the back with a 20 million bid to bring gerard piqué back to the club! They will also bid for angel di maria 18 mil
Liverpool won't be making any big signings , one of toni RVN or heskey will come in, possibly a cheaky bid for Gabriel heinze .
And finnally please stop posting rubbish about adrianos contrAct running out, that is complete rubbish , everyone said the same about sobis in the summer and he is still in th UAE without signing a contract extension
