o&by the way I have good authority that West Ham's new ground is going to be built at ARENA ESSEX

The people who say they saw Rick Parry, Rafael Benitez and Thierry Henry are blatant liars. That would mean that LFC have tapped Henry up, however I do not see Thierry doing the same as Cashley Cole, as he is more loyal to Arsenal. I think he would've joined Barca over Liverpool. These are the rumours circulating around the Grove, Arsenal are looking to snap up Deportivo midfielder Aldo Duscher, and will be battling it out with Manure for his signature. It has also been reported that Arsenal have joined race for Welsh left back Gareth Bale, However the rumour has been played down by Wenger, as he believes that Traore is the future. However it is well documented that Gareth Bale is an Arsenal supporter and friends with Theo, so would prefer to go to a team like Liverpool, or stay at Southhampton rather than joining Spurs or Man Utd. In which case a more likely move is Ryan Babel who also is an Arsenal supporter, the move is likely to be in the summer.

Lee Trundle will sign for Bolton by the end of the transfer window. He was reported to have been seen leaving the Bolton training ground earlier this morning, with his good friend Andy Robinson, who could be on his way to Burnely

Derek Riordan is set to move to Norwich City for 750,000. A long term target of Peter Grant, he has become annoyed by Celtics search for more strikers and will head to the Championship in search of regular first team action

To the guy that says in Scunthorpes paper is saying Scunthorpe have bid for leon Constantine is wrong it didn't say that and we are only wacthing his situation at the moment and that we may wait for clayton Donaldson in the summer. this is what I'm told by nigel adkins himself as he is a good friend of my stepfathers who used to be head chef at glanford park.

Lloyd. P.

Afonso Aleves (Heerenveen)

Mido (Spurs)

Collins John (Fulham)

Maroune Chamakh (Bordeux)

1 of these strikers above will join Man City for £3m by the end of the transfer window for sure. Chamakh looks the likely candidate as Bourdeux signed another City target Fernando Cavenaghi so Chamakh has fallen out of favour.

From a really promising source. Dean Ashton will leave West Ham Utd for Newcastle Utd in the summer, with Ameobi used as bait. Club reports indicate a £10 million transfer fee will be enough to lure the promising striker away from Upton Park, plus Ameobi in part exchange.

Martin Jol will sell defoe to Man Utd in the summer. with wes Brown + 2million going the other way, Simao will join white heart lane. along with garath Bale for 12 mill from southamton. I am good friends with Jol and these are his hot shots for the summer.

There was a rumour about rick parry, Rafa, stevie g and henry in a restaurant which I would like to confirm, because I was in there at the time! it hurts me to say it, because I'm a BLUE

GOOONER RUMOURS Ryan Babel (Ajax) was only in London to visit best friend Robin van Persie!It is also a well known fact in Holland that he is a massive Arsenal fan and would love to move to The Emirates. Gareth Bale (Southampton) is now being heavily tipped to join Arsenal and AW is up to his tricks again by telling everyone that he will not buy in the transfer window. Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus) will sign for Arsenal in the summer with Ljungberg going to Juve and the Vieira debt being wiped. Lupoli, Aliadiere, Gilbert, Poom and Lehmann will also be leaving in the summer.

Muzzy Izzet is for definiate going to be a coach at Leicester once the deal is completed. Rob Kelly will have 6 games to secure is job when Mandaric takes over. If not Iain Dowie, Mike Newell, Jamie Redknapp or Micky Adams will succed him. My money is on Redknapp. Richard Stearman will NOT be sold in the summer. Kevin Hawley will reject intrest from Norwich and will wait for the chance to join Leicester. Kevin Phillips could join Leicester on loan and Agarthe who was released from Villa is set to hold talks with Leicester. Also, an unamed Arsenal youngster is set to join Leicester on loan.

Norwich are looking at a South African striker/ midfielder who plays for Orlando Pirates, identity not known at this stage.

Rumours flying around Reykjavík are that the new West Ham owner will buy Icelands favourite son. Eidur GudJohnsen!

ARSENAL RUMOURS, JJ is back and has got the latest update for Arsenal. Well I can say definately Arsenal will sign a new keeper in the summer and if ljungberg leaves which is looking likely in the summer Ribery will be purchased and possibly a striker coming in the summer with aliadiere out and baptista signing perminently, the striker is likely to be either babel of Ajax. As for January Arsenal would be HOT favourites to sign gareth Bale as he is an Arsenal fan, he likes the way wenger runs things and is good friends with walcott however the bid could be scuppered due to traore coming up the ranks and soon to challenge clichy for left back next season so gareth Bale will not be bought although I'm afraid to say Spurs will get bale. In other rumours Arsenal may hijack Man Utd's bid to sign duscher though this is only to put tension on Uniteds bid so they spend more then what they are offering at the moment and as arsene has said he won't buy anyone in January as he is happy with his squad and why shouldnt he be with an undefeated start to 2007. Sure to bring you the latest rumours when I have it.


Celtic rumours: WGS wants a partner for JVH in attack. Miller and Majic are deemed not good enough so he has had Bobby Zamora watched. Zamora or Robbie Keane will be bought in Jan or in the summer to launch an attack on the Champ League, expect £4million bids to be made for either player Brown and Thompson will join in the summer not in January. Hibs were offered Craig Beattie as part of the deal but John Collins does not rate the striker.


I work at Liverpool Airport and seen Diego Milito arrive late last night! However he was collected by an unmarked car.

This last week could be a very eventful week for West Brom:

If Zoltan Gera leaves to Middlebrough, West Brom will swoop to sign both Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson from Hibs. Also my cousin works at the West Brom club shop and he saw Billy Sharp leaving in his BMW, probably would cost 1. 75 mil. And Brad Jones is a definate as we have had a bid accepted for 750,000 quid and Jones has already said that he wants to come to us if we give him a reasonable contract! Gary O' Connor also a possibility if Billy Sharp deal doesn't work out even though I think it will.

West Brom ins and outs


Ray Parlour - 6 month deal

Brown/ Thompson from Hibs - £4m

Steve Harper from Newcastle - loan until the end of the season

Billy Sharp from Scunthorpe - £1.75m


Russel Hoult - Contract terminated

Nathan Ellington - Wigan £3.5m

Zoltan Gera - Middlesbrough £2.75m

Everton FC

Everton set to complete moves for Fernandez and Bougherra in the next 24hrs! Everton also still in the race for Etherington. Riquelme will not b signing, that is the worst rumour ever.


Fernandez - 6 month loan

Bougherra - 3 million

Etherington - 2 million

West Ham have been busy in this window, but they have not finished yet! Eggy is using his uefa contacts and negotiations are well under way for another Argentinian attacking midfielder. His wages will be huge, but will set the scene for eggy's dream of competing with Man Utd and Chelsea. Sevilla will look at trying to get Mascherano in return.

Newcastle will sign: Curtis Davies 6mil + Bramble

Huntelaar 12mil + Emre

O'Shea 2mil

Justin Hoyte Loan

Diaby Loan

I am close friend of the Newcastle Uniteds accountant&he is preparing funds for these deals

READING Rumours. As a personal friend of Steve Coppell, he revealed that he was hoping that his contract would be renewed after Christmas time, However the Reading Chairman and Board have refused to increase his salary and transfer budget for the summer and are only prepared to offer him an extension on his current contract by 2 years, with all clauses and salary remaining the same. Steve feels his work at the club is highly unappreciated and is waiting to assess his options before he pens this insulting contract extension (as he may accept it due to his love for the club) . His agent believes that Reading would be happy to dispose of Steve as they feel he has left the club in a good state and situation for new management to easily take over. His agent also believes that they have already made contact with the manager they want to fill Steves boots should he leave, and that it is Liverpools Number 2 Paco Ayesteran who they want. I KNOW STEVE QUITE WELL, AND I BELIEVE HIS WORK AT THE CLUB IS INSULTED BY THIS And he will leave with paco taking over.

Shocking transfer rumours, Liverpool have confirmed that they have enquired about Thierry Henrys availibility, the deal will supposedly be worth up to 35m, this will not occur until the summer as AW has several strikers away on loan and now RVP is injured. This will leave a large space in the Arsenal attack so wenger may once again attempt to sign Adriano from Inter, this will cost around 20m, so AW will try and sign Ribery, Reo-Coker and Curtis Davies in the summer. With the Gareth Bale attempts failing he will also search for cover at left back.

Man U will try to raid Blackburn on 2 occasions, by trying to sign Morten Gamst Pedersen and Bentley costing around 20m for the pair, this will leave the door wide open for Alan Smith to make the exit he needs to save his career.

Mido will leave in the summer as he has rarely started for Spurs this season. Gareth Bale will snub a move to Man Utd and will join Spurs where he is guaranteed first team football.

90% guaranteed, from accurate sources.

Norwich City have had a bid accepted for Karl Hawley of Carisle Utd

I work at bham international airport for a well established airline. West Brom will announce the signings of Brown and Thomson from Hibs on Monday. I know this as they are booked onto one of our flights. also brad jones the Boro keeper will sign this weekend as hoult the dirty old man has been suspended by the club. Ellington going back up north. Wigan Everton or Man city.

I've heard from a very reliable source that the hornets will be signing 4 new players which include, ray parlour, Collins John (on Loan)

David Healy and a shock bid will go in for Liverpool's Zenden who is out of favour.

Aston Villa have not yet finished in the transfer market this January. Expect Papa Bouba Diop (Fulham), Shaun Maloney (Celtic) and Shaun Wright-Phillips (Chelsea) to both make their way to Villa by Tuesday 30th.

While Diop&Maloney will both be permanent deals, it remains to be seen if SWP will be a loan. Rumours are coming out of Villa Park that a £10m bid is being lined up.

Well its getting tense and Mark is enjoying teasing the Forest Fans. I will calm your nerves guys. Cullip out to QPR, Lester and Eaden to Gillingham, Jarvis from Gills in, Bircham deal cancelled due to back injury, Chambers finally will arrive and Calderwood is trying to get Stephen Clemence from Birmingham and James Vaaughan from Everton in. Trust me. Dan the Man
