It will be announced in the next 24 hours that Victor Moses is a Forest player. He will sign a 4 year contract for the club. The specific figure is secret at the moment but is meant to be in excess of £2.5 million.

Both Tottenham and Aston Villa were reported to have bid but neither club actually made a firm offer as a result Palace have taken the money and run. Moses is likely to make his debut in the local derby against Derby on Saturday.

I am related to a source close to Shaun Harvey and they tell me Leeds have lined up two signings over the next 24hours, with the possibility of a third signing before the closure of the transfer window on the 1st of February.

Brian Stock will be signing from Doncaster for a fee of approx £1 million. He and ghis agent have been talking terms today and it should be finalised in the morning.

The other signing is Sanchez Watt of Arsenal on loan until the end of the season.

The other possible signing is Paddy McCarthy, the Crystal Palace centre half. Leeds have put in a bid of £500k which is under consideration. Leeds expect a decision within the next 48 hours on this one.

The players likely to go this month to freeup wages are Andy Robinson who is attracting interest from both Tranmere and Colchester and Lubomir Michalik who has been the subjectof a £150k bid from Reading, which has been turned down. Leeds want £200k for him.


27 Jan 2010 18:36:09
Overheard Steve Bruce ranting on his mobile about Rafa Benitez, and I mean ranting (Remember Sunderland are in Liverpool to play Everton). He definately thinks Kenwyne Jones is on his way to LFC. Think the deal is bein kept on the downlow as to not upset everyone. Its definately a real possibility. Kenwyne himself however looked very relaxed and was chatting with the rest of the squad.
Wouldnt be a great addition in my eyes but anythings better then Ngog when Torres is out injured.


27 Jan 2010 18:43:26

Healy has been linked with a move to Rangers in every transfer window.

Roma and Udinese co–own Motta, but the Italian duo are willing to send him to England on loan as he does not figure in their plans this season.

Motta's representatives are believed to have held talks with City earlier this week and the former Italy Under 21 international is due to fly into England in the next few days to tie up the move

Trevor Hemmings will bankroll North End to the prem if he can get his hands on Derek Shaw/owen mclaughlin's shares. Two offers have already been refused, and Hemmings is starting to lose patience.

It was his choice to bring in Darren Ferguson as manager with the promise of big funds. He won't however bankroll the club while there are hangers on at the club.


27 Jan 2010 15:01:01
Liverpool chase for Huntelaar on loan failed again yesterday when Damien Plessis could not agree his terms to the loan swap with AC Milan. Rafa gave a cut of point for the deal to be done at 6pm yesterday so he could call the press conference before the wolves match. Rafa as lost patience with Ac Milan after the deal as not gone throw a second time in 2 weeks. The deal was for Huntelaar to join on loan till the end of the season to link up unsettled Babel with dirk kuyt and Huntelaar , but AC Milan had another idea that they would take Babel to Milan till the summer. This was not part of Rafa's plan which made on friday look at plan B . With Rafa only wanting a striker on loan till the end of the season and to buy a defender (left back) , he turned his eye to Kenwyne jones on a loan swap with Babel. But before ant contact was made the deal was leaked to the press and Steve Bruce kicked off and said Kenwyne would never be going on loan to anyone but they may be willing to cash in. this was before he found out that Babel was part of the deal. On monday Ac Milan than decided that they would take Damien Plessis aspart of the Huntelaar deal. At the same time liverpool was in talks to save the Kenwyne jones deal. Sunderland still stuck to there guns and said kenwyne would only be for sale. But it seamed the deal with Huntelaar was back on so liverpool said there not intrested any more but it Sunderland now have the idea of taking Babel on loan anyway???? As the huntelaar deal looks to have failed once again and Rafa getting tired of nobody been able to organise a piss up in a brewery and wanting to boost his number of British/English players in the team he's now going to turn to plan C He is considering letting Babel go on loan to Sunderland with a buy in summer and splash out on youngster Victor Moses and Stephen Warnock returning. ALL I CAN SAY IS WHAT A MESS LOL

So as it looks now

in summer
Milan Jovanovic
AND Marouane Chamakh to decide in march

Babel on loan till summer
Damien Plessis on loan to lazio

in summer
Babel or Riera
David N'Gog


27 Jan 2010 15:08:50

AC Milan striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar, who has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Ajax and FC Twente, says he does not mind where he goes – as long as he is guaranteed more playing time. Everton here he comes will be at the everton game later fact!!!!


27 Jan 2010 15:32:44
To the guy who said David Villa to Liverpool for £28m, give it a rest! I'll bet you my house it won't happen – its not even being contemplated by Liverpool.

David Villa to Barca is a done deal – £45m. It was almost done last summer but the deal fell through and Barca went from Ibra.

Sergio Aguero however is another story..he wants to move to either Milan or his biography..he supported both teams as a child and his favorite player of all time is Maradona followed by a certain scouser..FOWLER!


27 Jan 2010 16:00:13
Stuttgart 27–year oid midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger is rumoured a target for Moyes. The Germany international has not been a regular in the Stuttgart side this season. The former Aston Villa admits he might have to leave the club to secure first–team football for selection to Germany WC squad. Both West Ham and Birmingham are also interested. Rem you heard it First!!!


27 Jan 2010 16:01:14

Breaking News

I have this from the horses mouth – Tony Cottee is replacing Ian Holloway at Blackpool.

Apparently the Blackpool board are fed up of Holloway's rants and are genuinely concerned about his mental health. Cottee will go in on an initial short term deal with a 3 year deal following in the summer.

100% nailed on.

Notts forest hoping to sign lee carsley and lee hughes as ernshaw going to middlesbro


27 Jan 2010 14:25:22
Celtic will only let Fox and McManus go if replacements can be secured. The Fox story caught me by suprise, but if the lad can't settle then a fair price must be obtained for a guy that showed good potential, (but needs to cut out more crosses)
McManus (former Captain!!)who prefers to feign injury than turn out for Mowbray and the Hoops has been constantly on to Strachan to bail him.
Scott MacDonald is desperate to move and has been convincing his agent to look at any permutations that can help him on his way.
In view of this, Celtic would love to sign Stokes of Hibs but have been warned off by Hibs who did a similar job with the Celtic board when penny–pinching squabbling let Fletcher through the net.
Hibs have however, expressed an interest in O'Dea and Caddis, who may be bargaining tools in this.
In my opinion both should have been given their chance at Celtic before now but 2 managers can't be wrong?? (Can they!!).
Mowbray is also looking at loan deals – Geremi (Newcastle) Koren (WBA) and Ben Haim (Portsmth) However; sadly, very very few Premier League players will consider SPL football.
More worrying articles in the press suggest Paddy McCourt and young Crosas may also leave for Blackpool and Malaga respectively. Hopefully it's mischief making by certain Glasgow journalists, as without Maloney and Brown we are looking at the ball–boys to make up the numbers at training.
In the next few weeks a very new–look Celtic will take the field to try and salvage our season.

I have heard healy is intresting a few championship clubs ipswich, coventry, cardiff and derby, barnsley are out of it as they wanted him on loan, steve bruce wants a million for him


27 Jan 2010 14:51:20
Aberdeen's Tommy Wright could be heading for Kilmarnock as a free agent till the end of the season.

Calderwood brought Wright to Aberdeen, however the Englishman has failed to start under Mark McGhee, and has only appeared twice as a substitute.

Calderweeod is expected to offer him a short term contract to get him notcied again.

Kris Iwelumo has also been linked with the club. Iwelumo has a good relationship with Claderwood from when they were both in the Dutch league several years back.

It is understood that the Ayrshire lad – who grew up only 4 miles from Rugby park – is eager to get back playing first team football and to gain back his fitness, and could play for the SPL team to do so, with a quick release clause in his loan deal in order to help struggling Wolverhampton in the run into the end of the season!


27 Jan 2010 13:47:54
Arsenal will sign the following players at the end of the season:

Joe Hart (Man City, 4m), Simon Kjaer (Palermo, 11m), Scott Parker (West Ham, 5m), Axel Witsel (Standard Leige, 7m), Victor Moses (Crystal Palace – will sign in Jan but be loaned back, 4m), Sergio Canales (Racing, 8m), Marouane Chamack (Bordeaux, Free), Samuel Galindo (Real America, 500k).

Manuel Almunia, Kerrea Gilbert, Mark Randall, Phillipe Senderos, Mikail Silvestre, Sol Campbell, Armand Traore, Denilson, Fran Merida will all leave the club. Arsene Wenger may also listen to offers for Eduardo, Theo Walcott and Carlos Vela.

Francis Coquelin, Kyle Bartley, Tom Cruise, Craig Eastmond, Jack Wilshere, Jay Emanuel–Thomas, Gilles Sunu and Rhys Murphy will all go out on loan.


27 Jan 2010 13:53:50

Telling me there is lots of talk about huntelaar coming to the emirates , but wenger wants him on a 12 month loan whereas AC want shot of him or only a 6 month loan deal .I post all the time so far what i have said is 100% true. what this space!!!


27 Jan 2010 13:13:45
The suggested Kenwyn Jones transfer with Liverpool is a smokescreen for the impending £28 million switch of Valencia's David Villa. Ryan Babel is on the verge of an £11 million move whilst Yossi Benayoun is set for a £7 million Moscow exit and the remaining £10 million has been shockingly put forward by Liverpool's American owners – with Gilett having just sold his $300 million ice hockey firm.
Liverpool fans look set to get the big last day transfer this year.


27 Jan 2010 13:16:42
Ive just been told Everton/Moyes are about to give in the chase for Huntelaar on a loan/ to buy summer move . Ac Milan are not wanting to sell the player but Huntelaar is still wanting first team football ahead of the world cup. This as put Liverpool back as favourites to land the player till the end of the season. Moyes and his back room team have come up with another plan that could be intresting to watch in this transfer window and the summer. Moyes in the past as developed young players like Rooney and made them into world class players and now hes going to try again with Victor Moses and Jermaine Beckford. Moyes is looking in to buying Moses by the end of this window for around 3m and the same for beckford in the summer. He feels that both players can develop in to premiership players and even grow a partnership for the England. If only one of these Players comes good he can not loose out money wise. Its a win win win situation for Everton


27 Jan 2010 13:25:51
No wonder English football laughs at us, the hot scottish football debate on here, Is Govan in the Southside? Clowns! We are any of the two of us even bragging?? We're battling to see who's the least pish team, both are still pish though.

Rangers – No one. No dough, end of. Boyd's the best scorer the spls seen (derisory laugh) and he was offered 18 grand a week, tells the story. Not even Celtic could try n be that cheap without outside influence.

Celtic – First off, no big names, forget that. Mostly kids, Celtic's sort of like of football 'dealer' now, get some good stuff in cheap and punt it for a profit. Players will start arriving in large briefcases!!! Fox and Mick being moved out to fund a move for St Ledger according to Clyde 1, who Mowbray is desperate to sign according to Clyde 1. A token scottish left back, Mulgrew or Wallace. Another striker is definately coming in. No bigger players will leave now, too late to get replacements as Mowbray needs to make it appear we're still trying to win the league!!

Lambert(manager), Lennon(assistant), Larsson(coach and deity) will take over in the summer.

Holy Goalie Rules!!!


27 Jan 2010 13:30:10

Care Home Tycoon, Multi Millionaire and Arab fan Tony Banks WILL join the board of directors next week.He is set to invest in the club and put the club back on a solid financial footing.


27 Jan 2010 12:19:41

27 Jan 2010 12:20:02
Dag & Red manager John Still will replace Gary Johnson at Bristol City after the torrid 6–0 loss to Cardiff. Paul Benson is also being lined up for a move to Ashton Gate.


27 Jan 2010 12:22:42
To the guy who asks everyday for news on Aberdeen.

27 Jan 2010 12:32:05
Any news on Marco Motta from Roma, rumours is saying that he was playing his last game against Siena last night.. Man city should be interested??


27 Jan 2010 12:33:03
Arsenal news: any potential interest in Chris Smalling is pointless now that he is signing for Man Utd. Sergio Canales may yet sign for Arsenal, but Real Madrid look to be the favourites for his signature. looks like no striker will come in this window, and bendtner will b back tonight for the Villa game. Wishere will complete a loan move to Bolton within 2 days. Senderos will not be offered a new deal, but looks to stay in the premiership provided he impresses David Moyes enough at Everton. Gallas will sign a new contract, however Silvestre will not. All eyes now turn to the summer:
with Mannone and Szczesny coming through the ranks, it is touch and go whether a new GK will arrive. In any case, Almunia will leave in the summer to return to Spain. if a GK does come in, expect it to be somebody top class such as Neuer, Hart or Green.
in defence, our fullback positions are well covered, with Sagna, Eboue, Clichy, Gibbs and Traore. Gavin Hoyte maybe promoted next season. Doubts as to whether Traore will still be at Arsenal come next season persist, given his defensive frailties. In central defence, Silvestre and Senderos will permanently move on, with Gallas staying on. With Djourou injury prone, at least one class CB will be brought in. My money is on Sakho or Subotic, both young, powerful and hungry players. both would cost around £10–15m. Keep an eye on Martin Cacares of Barcelona, who wenger would snap up if the club with his first option did not act. Sol Campbell will be given until the end of the season to prove that he is worthy of a longer deal than the 6 month one he currently has. The guy has bags of experience and will probably become a defensive coach at arsenal in the near future.
DCM: Song has excelled this season, and Eastmond has come through, though Wenger himself concedes that he is not yet ready for the big time. expect a loan move for him next season. in the mean time, another DCM maybe brought in, not some1 who would be guaranteed a place, but some1 who can keep Song on his toes. Names such as Matuidi, Witsel and Noble come to mind.
AM: Fabregas will stay. of that i have no doubt. Most of the midfield have signed new contracts this season, so don't expect Diaby, Nasri, Rosicky, Ramsey, etc to leave. Merida is off to Atletico for sure. Denilson has hit some scoring form, but Ramsey is sure to overtake him in the pecking order, so don't be surprised if he goes. it is doubtful any additions will be made in this department, but youngsters may well be signed. Wenger is a long term admirer of Eden Hazard, who would be a fantastic acquisition for us. Canales is another potential signing.
STR: Arshavin, Vela, RVP, Bendtner, Eduardo, Walcott – an abundance of striking talent. However don't count out additional signings in the summer. Eduardo's form has been patchy at best, and Arsenal can ill afford another lengthy RVP injury next season without sufficient cover. Chamakh has been linked with us many times. Im confident he will choose Arsenal over Liverpool and the other clubs interested in him. the alternatives include Carlton Cole, Edin Dzeko and Andre–Pierre Gignac. Dzeko would still be first choice, but Chamakh would be value for money, as will be, er, free. expect Jay Simpson to sign permanently for QPR in return for youngster Raheem Sterling.
other youngsters will either go out on loan or be sold. expect Sunu, Coquelin, Cruise and Frimpong to be out on loan next season. Galindo may come into the squad if he gets clearance.
recap of my predictions:
January: in: nobody new. out: wilshere (loan)
summer: in: Chamakh (free), Sterling (swap), Subotic/Sakho (£10–15m), Witsel (£8m), Hart (£5m), Hazard (£7m), Caceres (potential).
out: Silvestre (free), Senderos (free), Almunia (£4m), Gilbert (free), Merida (free), Simpson (swap), Randall (£1m).

Gary Johnson resigned as BCFC manager immediately following their 0–6 hammering at home by Cardiff, but the chairman told him to think it over and get this weekends game out of the way before coming back to him. He also pledged his support in terms of transfers and Jon Harley will sign from Watford (pending agreement of personal terms) on Thursday or Friday.

Louis Carey is to be stripped of the captaincy and dropped with Jamie McAllister is close to playing his last game for the club. Christian Ribeiro is to be recalled from Colchester as soon as his loan deal permits and he will replace Bradley Orr. All change following the 0–6 humiliation.


27 Jan 2010 12:55:12

I have two friends who play professionally, one is jermaine beckford (who is going no where in this transfer window as money has gone on williamson and routledge and was only cosidering newcastle) and also paul green of derby, paul green is expected to re–sign for doncaster rover 'IF' brian stock leaves the club, burnley or nottingham forest seem to be front runners as there midfielders are high on the interest of premier league clubs.. but there is one rumour i have been told about. i don't no how true this is, but supposedly stoke are signing Andy Carroll for 3m plus Sidibe. also finally, a rumour surrounding mancherster city at the minute is the mourinho thing, he only has one ambition and that is to manage united not the city. City are on the verge of a 25m swoop for AC Milan midfielder Andrea Pirlo and Mark Bresciano is attracting interest from two premier league clubs, 1 being blackburn where his friend Brett Emerton is.and also Fulham, where he will go remains to be seen.. all these rumours are exactly that, and may or may not be 100% fact.

After last night's humiliation QPR are set to offer Alan Shearer the managers job with immediate effect. He will be assisted by Rob Lee and Tommy Craig will be the experienced head, also Razor Ruddock will come in to help with defensive coaching. No Dowie for obvious reasons.
The richest club in the world have finally decided enough is enough and they will give Shearer the backing to get what he can before the end of the window and in loans after it closes to try and get into the play offs. Whether or not they go up this season Shearer will be given huge financing next season to either ensure Premiership status or to ensure promotion.

Yossi Benayoun set for Dynamo Moscow as Russian club claim Liverpool star has agreed terms

Yossi Benayoun has agreed terms to quit Liverpool for Dynamo Moscow, according to the Russian club's sporting director.

Dynamo are yet to agree a fee with the Barclays Premier League giants, but hope to settle on £7million before the end of the week.

Despite the 29–year–old being one of boss Rafa Benitez's most trusted players, details of talks between Benayoun's agent and Dynamo emerged last week.

Anfield boss Benitez would be reluctant to lose one of his most reliable performers, but with the Spaniard's own future in doubt, cash–strapped Liverpool may be keen to take the money and target other areas.

They are still looking for a striker to take the burden off injury–plagued Fernando Torres.

The Merseysiders have already signed like–for–like player Maxi Rodriguez from Atletico Madrid, with the Argentina international able to play on the wing or through midfield.
Dynamo sporting director Konstantin Sarsania told a Russian website: 'We came to an agreement with the player's agent. Now everything depends on Liverpool's position.

'I don't think there will be news on Wednesday, but in the next two days the situation should be clarified.'

Israel captain Benayoun was offered a similar move to Spartak Moscow year ago, only to sign a new Anfield deal in the summer.

Dynamo are understood to be offering him a three–year contract, with the option of a fourth year, on terms of about £75, 000 a week.

The tax rate in Russia is also significantly lower than in England.

Liverpool has agreed a deal with AC Milan for Klaas Jan Huntelaar on loan for the rest of the season, with a view to a permanent move for £8m in the summer. This leaves Ryan Babel on the outer. He wants out and has been offered a last chance move to Galatasaray for £10m or a swap deal for £3m plus Turan. Rafa desperately wants him out and could use the money he has raised throughout January in the transfer window.


27 Jan 2010 05:14:31

Strikers Chris Sharp and Rhys Griffiths (of Bangor City and Llanelli respectively) have been offered a weeks trial at Meadow Lane.

Any updates on Huntelaar to Liverpool??


26 Jan 2010 23:49:32
I know a few insiders at rangers.

The club has been told they need to win the leauge or find a buyer before the summer.

If this does not happen all players who are on high wages and can demand a transfer fee will be sold to reduce the debt maybe even pay it off all together. The only major problem is with the new structure that is in place to reduce overheads walter smith and his team will not sign on in the summer. david weir will be made manager in the summer and asked to re build rangers with a limited budget


27 Jan 2010 00:03:14

Rafa off to juventus (thank god) what's he done apart from sign Torres? Any way on to rumours. King kenny to bring in a big striker. Huntelaar on loan possible but Jones still a possibility for right price. Turan swap with bumbling Babel plus cash going to the Turks. Please 4–4–2 with Stevie driving the midfield!


26 Jan 2010 22:55:23
To the people who guys insulting Liverpool fans about there rumours look at the the Arsenal fans talking about David Villa to Arsenal or Aguero and Ribery to Chelsea or the Mancs saying they're getting Messi or Torres, you must be joking!!!!
Liverpool–Huntelaar(loan or 10 million)
Chamakh or Jovanovic(Pre contract)
Chelsea–No one
Arsenal–Possibly a striker
Man U–Smalling(pre–contract for 8 million)


26 Jan 2010 23:03:41
LOL to the person who wrote that Greg Halford is going to Juventus.

Someone who may be going to Juventus is Robinho. His mate Diego wants him there and it is probably that Santos and Sao Paulo will not be able to afford him.
