Bristol city to sign Billy Sharp and Dan Harding {Ed034's Note - sharp is on a season long loan and cannot be recalled. I think most forest fans would happily drive Harding to Bristol

Sharp is supposed to be on 40,000 a week. City won't pay that as much as I'd love to have him there



27 Jan 2013 19:10:30
Bournemouth have enquired about the avaliabilty of Charlton striker Bradley Wright Phillips but nothing concrete yet. {Ed034's Note - they are willing to sell as they offered him to notts last week

When did he start falling out of favour at Charlton? He was on fire for them so he couldn't of been dropped because of his form..

Bradley Wright Philips is the kind of quality that bourneomouth wants to improve the squad, so could be true.

He has not ben able to step up to championship level, second half of last season he rapidly declined in form. do a job for bournemouth if true!



27 Jan 2013 19:05:42

He needs to pull his finger out then if this is the aim.
What is it 4 days left ?...

Can a Dundee Utd fan shed light on what sort of bid would be accepted.

Please don't say 10 million just because your a Dundee Utd fan. Honestly how much in an unbiased opinion do you think Dundee Utd want?

27 Jan 2013 17:08:20
Reading are set to bid 2 million pounds for Southampton striker Jonathan Forte. The striker has impressed in league 1 on loan this season and at Southampton has been overlooked due to players like Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodriguez. Reading seem to think this would be a good move as the striker has a good goalscoring record and could prove to be adequate back up to Le Fondre and Pogrebnyak.

Hahahha I so want this to be true from a saints fan

I'm a saints fan, you can have him for free, he's poor.

I think southampton would bite readings hand off if they offered 2million for him.

Ha ha! I would love Jonathon Forte to be worth 2 million! If so, sell him immediately! Lol

They can have him for free

27 Jan 2013 23:12:26
Quite clearly a southampton fan on a wind up, why would we want a saints cast off when we are after players like Tom Ince, Iago Aspas and Andrei Arshavin.

I cannot believe this to be true. He couldn't get near the first team when we were in the championship. No offence to him but he is nowhere near prem standard. If Reading are looking at players like this to survive then they are doomed. He is never worth 2mill either - Saints fan.

2 million? i'll drive him there myself if reading offered that

Not gunna happen.

Ok. Look it's not Aprils fools day yet. Good back up for the pog and le fondre get real our strike force don't need your drop outs. go away this is a rumours site. Not a ridiculous. Soton rumours site. Go away. !!

Same he's terrible



27 Jan 2013 17:35:28
After rejecting an offer from Cheltenham Town last week, Paul Benson is set to change his mind and join the Robins on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent move. Benson was in the stands for Cheltenham's draw with Rochdale on Friday.



27 Jan 2013 16:14:59
Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie a very good friend of albert adomah's could be a factor of him joining him at selhurst park as the club will up their offer to £2 million
before thursday deadline. Meanwhile Nick Blackman also a target according to media reports has dismissed rumours of his intension of signing for the eagles as he feels it is a very good career move with a club that will
prevail in promotion.

So is Blackman coming or not, you said he dismissed reports of signing for palace and then you say he said it's a good career move.......BS?But Adomah woud be top signing



27 Jan 2013 16:05:53

Im a city fan cannot see us getting sharpe

27 Jan 2013 20:15:48
Sharpe is on a season long loan and he has already played for 2 teams so is not available to another team

27 Jan 2013 21:18:16
Sharp already on a season long loan at Forest, so thays a no goer.



27 Jan 2013 14:58:06
Sunderland set to sign Graham and Zarate before transfer window closes. Deal for Van Djik looks like it has no legs and another possible move for a midfielder is on the cards. MON feels his squad is still very weak and having let 3 strikers leave, including Ji on loan, it looks likely that they will sign at least one of their forward targets.



27 Jan 2013 14:53:16
Newcastle have made a 12 million pound bid for ivory coast striker Wilfried Bony

Looks insane :)
but wait he's not french



27 Jan 2013 14:48:09
stoke are set to finally sign 2 fullbacks martin olsson from blackburn (left back) and Andreas beck (right back) from hoffenheim.
tony pulis has put aside 10 million to sign the pair

Not before time. Heard on radio Stoke on Friday that the last full back we signed was Marcus Hall. After another inept display against Man City on Saturday I think serious things need to happen with the squad. Lost last four to premier league teams and scored one goal. Still need five more wins to hopefully be safe but at the moment can't see where they are coming from.

Something needs to be done, last four games have been poor, defence looking weak all of a sudden and no goals coming from anywhere, Wigan on the 29th will not be easy even though stoke are home! They could even lose that at this rate! Need a striker, a winger and a fullback defo - move Whelan, whitehead and wilkinson on - need quality ASAP

Don't rate Olsson at all, personally think there's plenty of better LBs out there for the kind of money that's being guessed at.



27 Jan 2013 14:46:23
Palace look favourites to sign DJ campbell again...



27 Jan 2013 14:10:18
Steve Bruce has been in contact with Carlisle United. Over the possible signing of Lee Miller.

Not TRUE won't happen

If he leaves it will be to stay up north near Scotland



27 Jan 2013 13:28:51
Jamie Ward to sign for Wolves tomorrow (Monday)



27 Jan 2013 13:04:46
Ryan donk linked with return to wba

Please NO!!!



27 Jan 2013 12:09:07
Bolton look set to sign Hamilton Accies young 18 yera old defender Gary Fraser. Due at Reebok on Monday for a medical according to Bolton News. Can only see him being one for the future.

We will need a replacement a left back if Alonso goes to Italy and I think another winger now Petrov has gone to put pressure on Lee and in particular Eagles who looks to comfortable with no one pushing him. Why not go for Alan Judge from Notts County?

Alan judge is an attacking midfielder/playmaker...not a left back



27 Jan 2013 11:59:55
Wrexham are on the verge of signing Andy Bishop from Bury. The fee is rumoured to be around 9k. The 30 year old will take a 50% pay cut to join the reds in the January Transfer Window.

Seems to be generally accepted that Bish will go to Wrexham on a permanent deal at some point but with the Shakers desperate for strikers, I can't see him going without one or even two new forwards joining.

The move by Efe Sodje to Macclesfield (set to be completed Monday 28/01) looks very much like freeing up wages to bring a 'known' forward to the club. Chris Porter and Mike Grella have both been mentioned as possible returners.



27 Jan 2013 11:52:07
norwich have logde a bid for stokes from celtic after missing out on hooper

Never! Stokes is a poor Morrison who couldn't hack in the prem before!



27 Jan 2013 13:46:09
Wilfried Bony on his way to NUFC in a 12m deal. should be confirmed on tuesday

Hes at the African cup of nations doubt it

If this is true then we might as well be relegated now . Why do we want to sign anyone from them, they are not even championship



27 Jan 2013 14:43:45
Q.P.R. and West Brom exploring various option regarding Peter Odemwingie.

West Brom have the choice of £3, 500,000 OR £2,000,000 Junior Hoilett.

27 Jan 2013 17:39:25
Just get shot of the trouble maker we don't need him

If our scouting system is as good as they preech, let them leave, bank money, and find somone better, we found peter odemwinge, we can find somone else who wants to play for us.



27 Jan 2013 14:41:29
Aston Villa could lose Darren Bent and Christian Benteke.

Darren Bent attracting interest from Sunderland and Newcastle.

Christian Benteke targeted by Arsenal and Tottenham.

As Bent would never join Sunderland again.
Complete B.S & as this is from the Telegraph & they are totally anti-midlands sides.
Benteke is just 1 year into a 4 year deal & Bent can go, Weimann is better!

27 Jan 2013 20:04:08
Both of these were put on twitter by a fake aston villa account and somehow through crap journalism have been put in the paper.

Would newcastle have bent after being a sunderland player we should as much money as we have to on bony wilfred who looks insane



27 Jan 2013 14:33:43
Jay bothroyd to bristol city on loan as cover because ryan taylor is out with a broken collarbone.



27 Jan 2013 14:26:28
Norwich have offered cash plus Jackson for Wolves Kevin Doyle.

Rubbish. He's no better than what we already have

Would def like kevin doyle at norwich,

Doyle is no way good enough! Might as well keep Jackson!

The manager has already said he will not offer any players in any deals!

Good he is rubbish

Doyle is firing blanks the past year or so, I would gladly take a swap of Jackson for Doyle.



27 Jan 2013 14:16:41
David bentley on loan to middlesbrough for the rest of the season

Is this actualy true or did you see I. tv he wants a loan move?

27 Jan 2013 18:34:43
Was told by a reliable source within the club

27 Jan 2013 19:50:26
As a boro fan, good signing.

Right why would we need more mids in our team what we need is some one to take emnes off us and get someone in to help the juke and scoty look hit him from watford he's class act

Haha good what do we want with him play the kids more and we will do ok bentley is he a striker now lets face it that is what we need boro fan we need goals and fast what we got at the club no goals yws he's a rm I think good yes but he's slow no pace so he's no good

Good signing if true



27 Jan 2013 14:16:16
Adam Hammill in talks for permanent deal at Huddersfield after not playing for wolves at the weekend

Hope so really came good towards the end of his loan. So much more to offer.

He would be a top earner at the club along with two other wingers, so no chance

Hope so he showed his quality at his last game for us

Pleaaaaaase be true! Would be soo happy with that! He's brilliant! Absolutely great him and scannel on the wing is what dreams are made of

Highly likely, he hates it at Wolves and Huddersfield stood by him after his problems.

Don't think so now that Larry has gone.

No he isn't Hoyle said at the HTSA meeting before the watford game that Hammil won't be comming back, the only person who wanted him was Grayson because he got him out of trouble against brum



27 Jan 2013 14:15:33
Rumours are that GFH are looking to sell LUFC, can't really believe it myself.



27 Jan 2013 13:35:23

27 Jan 2013 11:53:35
West ham have Emmanuel Pogatetz having a medical at the hammers today on a 6month contract and if all goes well will be given a permanent one



27 Jan 2013 12:26:19
Huddersfield to hold talks with Paul Dickov and Karl Robinson - Plus Town will sign 6 more players

I doubt 6 more players will come in

27 Jan 2013 14:49:46
No we won't ! For one 6 players in 4days, and plus budget as been spent

I hope this is not true. Please appoint Adkins or Di Matteo. We need a manager who knows what he is doing, can sign quality players and who can repay the effort and desire shown by the Chairman. Please appoint Adkins or Di Matteo

Nonsense. Saw Hoyle at the HTSA meeting last week and he stated NO more players will be coming in. The new manager must have Championship experience to get us out this hole. Dickov and KR do not fit the role at this point in time.

Maybe they will hold talks but a big ask for either to take the reigns and give Town a better than evens chance of staying up. Both decent blokes but never managed above league one and not won a promotion.

Don't we need manager first before signing 6 players ? These rumours are getting very very silly now ! Coyle has now moved to favourite on some betting sites !

Do Mateo was at the Town ground Friday. Excellent source.

Di Matteo won't come to H.T.F.C, ex champions league manager, come on .town could not afford moneys on Roy Keane, or Marcus Stewart.

Dickov's stock will have shot up after today's big win, might want to stick around for another go at Liverpool's sister club.

Can't see us signing anyone until we appoint a manager.

Can't see Robinson coming after his comments about our chairman when Lee Clark was sacked.

Dickov would be a good manager if he had funds as he also has very good contacts.

We have Baxter, and Wabara our RB is a City player who played his last game for us today before apparently going to the Championship.

Dickov would be good to watxh with money behind him as he has nothing at oldham just loan signings. and frees.



27 Jan 2013 11:28:21
Hey there EDS' have you got any North End transfer news, if the gaffer is correct then there should be 2 or 3 to come in still, any ideas who?

D {Ed003's Note - nope,sorry.}

stephen warnock being allowed to join west ham on a free transfer. Carlton cole going to turkeyand Mo diame wants to join arsenal and fears are that he may leave it until last minute at which time it will be to late top get replacement. Maiga off to Bordeaux and Diarra also due to depart leaving west ham short of quality in midfield if Diame also leaves. Worrying times for west ham boss sam allardyce



27 Jan 2013 11:34:08
Crystal palace offer kieron dyer a pay-as -you-play contract after the 34 year old midfielder was realeased from QPR

Shame he joined middlesbrough yesterday was at the aldershot game

Great news he joined Middlesbrough because he is way past it

27 Jan 2013 19:41:19
A player I would like to see palace sign is Carl baker of Coventry seen him a few times way above div one standard



27 Jan 2013 11:30:51
Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans has been given three matches to improve the form of his team. Failure will result in the termination of his contract at the New York Stadium. Chairman Tony Stewart is rumoured to be already lining up Evans' replacement. In a strange twist Evans replacement could also be from Crawley Town as Richard Barker is top of the list to replace Evans at Rotherham.

Backward step for RB - don't think this will happen some how! Mr Evans possiblyt go, Claude Davis did him no favours yesterday.

No chance why would rb want to sort his mess out twice

RB moved from bury to be closer to his family so can't see him heading back up north especially to rotherham massive backward step for his career if he did...



27 Jan 2013 11:26:50
sheffield wednesday to sign Daniel Lopes and jack rodwell on loan for rest of season from mancity

Hope so 2 very good players get them and owls will finish mid table

With what money? Madaric has a very tight wallet. You couldn't afford either of their wages.


Marcos lopes yes coming to s6 on loan
rodwell no chance

Rodwells a premiership standard midfielder



27 Jan 2013 11:18:35
Adkins will not be taking the Huddersfield managers job. Hoyle has spoken to him but Adkins feels it is not right for him.#M

27 Jan 2013 16:17:30
Nigel Aktins will be named Huddersfield Town's new manager on Wednesday and introduced to the fans at the Crystal Palace game the same day.

You have just totally made this up ! Why wouldn't Hoyle want a manager with 2 successive promotions ? Joker !

I think you need to read the original text again

Read the post properly. Hoyle does want Adkins but Adkins does not want the Town job. Hope that clarifies it for you. #M

27 Jan 2013 10:15:41
Onismor Bhasera is leaving Plymouth, he said goodbye to the fans yesterday and although it is unknown which club he will be joining, the obvious choices would be;
Crystal Palace - Ollie has always been a great admirer
Middlesbrough - Good lower league scouting set up.
Leeds - Warnock has tried to sign him before and could do again
Blackpool - Always linked with him could sign him, but this is the most unlikely,
Birmingham - If selling players and are in need of a cheaper one for the position
Bristol City - ROK seemed to be in charge of Transfers at Walsall who were massively linked with Bhasera now he's gone to Bristol Baz might do too.
Walsall - If ROK wasn't in charge of transfers then presumably they're still in for him.

One deal that will happen is Striker Jamie Paterson from Walsall joining Bristol City, he is set to head there for talks tomorrow, this deal could tilt Walsall to signing Bhasera from Plymouth.

Which of those mentioned are most likely?

27 Jan 2013 22:04:44
I'd say Palace or Bristol City are the most likely destinations.

He is not leaving actually



27 Jan 2013 09:53:10
I would be very surprised if Reading pay that price tag but would be nice, but would be better offering that kind of money to villa for Bent or taking Welbeck on loan till end of the season.



27 Jan 2013 09:50:44
Having fallen out of favour at Fulham, Philippe Senderos is a surprise target for Watford. While Nosworthy and Hall provide some experience, the Pozzos feel that they need a little bit more of Premier League and international stability. With senderos out of contract in the summer, it is thought Watford can get him on loan, so long as fulham can find a replacement

I hope not!

Why he is decent

Senderos is the worst player in the whole Fulham team, it is nerve racking everytime he goes on because you are waiting for him to make a mistake. If I was Watford I definately wouldn't buy him unless you want to waste your money.

Will sign tomorrow, done deal

Really really doubt this. In fact I am so confident I will place my name by this comment.
Kevin H

Senderos shouldn't come to Watford. He is awful and wouldn't fit into the Watford XI that are doing so well atm

According to the daily mirror, Norwich have made a £12 million bid for Ricky van wolfswinkel but I personally can't see Norwich spending that much on a single player

I would agree with you however we are in desperate need for a striker like RVW and paying over might be a consequence they are willing to accept. A striker is needed desperately

Should spend it all on a new manager as hughtoh roeder is c..p

Not a chance

27 Jan 2013 11:00:21
im sure I've heard rumours of a possible release clause in his contract, which is less than this. aroud 10m euros. might not be true

I heard it was 10m euros like you say we wouldn't spend that sort of money on one player

If we make an 8 million bid for Van Wolfswinkel why can't we bid 8 million for Hooper? Celtic said they would listen to offers of 8 million and over!

They actually say an 8m offer...but SL want 12m

It was 7.9 million but they rejected it saying the asking price is 12 million

If we bid a max of 5.5m for hooper I really can't see us being able to afford 12mil for anyone .... mind you, desperate times call for desperate measures !

Its possible, cup loss might have scared the board. With the new tv deal from next season even bottom of the league get 60m. No one can afford the drop this year.

It's a bit risky to spend that much on a player who hasn't played in the prem before, we don't wanna spend 10-12 million on a player who might not live up to expectations

Spending that much on one player is silly when its clear we need players all round the pitch, and with especially after yesterday show we might be staring relation in the eye, the players confidences are at a low ebb now, and defeat against spurs on wed, will take a lot to pull it altogether

One thing is for sure....if McNally doesn't do something drastic within the next 4 days.....we are into freefall!!

According to Sky, we paid Sporting £8mil but they wanter £12mil for van Wolfswinkel

I love how everyone who slates Chris Hughton can't spell his name right, ok we are having a bad patch but the games haven't exactly been easy, It wasn't long ago we where 10 games unbeaten, we will be fine this season, we need a striker and a center back for sure other than that we are a good team.



27 Jan 2013 09:20:16
Jeremy Helan to sign a 6 year contract with watford for a few believed to be 750,000.

27 Jan 2013 14:13:02
You got more chance of signing Jeremy Healy. Rave on!

Nobody will sign a six year contract. Helen may sign but it will be four or three years

Is he any good

27 Jan 2013 16:43:34
He was talking to the club on Friday so no need to rave on????

27 Jan 2013 17:02:08
Turned Watford down wants to return to Sheffield wed if they can afford him?

Pretty sure this is completed now good cover for pudil. Well, better than Forsyth.....

Forresteri signed for 5 and a half years, why would he not want to go to watford with the chance of prem footy next season

Jeremy Helan will sign a 3 1/2 year deal with Watford this week and will be elegible for the Bolton Wanderers game on Saturday.



27 Jan 2013 09:20:03
Exeter have offered a 1 year extension to Alan Gow to fend off transfer interest in the forward. Exeter boss Paul Tisdale does not want to sell the forward.

Signing for Gillingham tomorrow with Danny Jackman going the other way!

On his way to Gillingham sadly

Hoping this is true need him for the game on tv tommorrow

Where did you here that he's going to gillingham not true

He has already signed a 2 year deal at the start of the season

He's not leaving for gillingham

Yeah he's not leaving why would he we are just behind them in the league



27 Jan 2013 09:18:14
Callum MacManaman of a wigan going on loan to Millwall, Huddersfield or Mkdons fo the remainder of the season.

Can he play on the wing

'can he play on the wing'/// He's a winger.



27 Jan 2013 08:47:57
Brighton have enquired for Sheffield Wednesday's Chris Kirkland.

Why? We already have two good keepers why would we fancy a third.

I'd rather him than Ankergren, worst keeper in Brighton's history bar Rodriguez

I highly doubt it, seeing as we have kuzszsack (spelling error) and if we did he would only sit on bench, waste of time for both parties

Two league goals conceded in last seven games by Kirkland

Ankegran and brezavan are the worse ever

I think brezavan beats ankergran for the worse keeper ever a 6" 6 keeper who stands 10ft tall if jumping 2ft off the ground and arms stretched out above head, yet still couldn't catch a ball always punched It cost us 5 goals v Liverpool last year hense the sacking of the goalkeeper coach one thing poyet has got right!kirkland in

Rodriguez??? I think you will find his name was Gonzalez....also been far worse other goalkeepers than Ankegren. Already got THREE veteran goalkeepers so cannot imagine us taking Kirkland as well.

Ankergren is shocking did nothing special against arsenal a very a carafe goalkeeper Kirkland would make the oth keeper compete more

Brighton do need a decent back up keeper. Ankergren and Brezovan decent non league keepers

Casper belongs in non league could not even make it to Leeds reserve side we need 2 keepers we just bout have one if he gets injured we have no hope of play offs brighton fan

We have one good keeper as proved against Arsenal...



27 Jan 2013 08:36:02
Christian Benteke is set for Arsenal or Tottenham and will be comfirmed at one of the clubs by wednesday for a fee of £12million.

If villa sell benteke they will not have any firepower what so ever . Say goodbye to premier league football villa fans

27 Jan 2013 11:10:30
Bent eke would not be able to play this season for another team therefore will not be moving anywhere until the summer if at all

27 Jan 2013 11:56:39
Pointless, you can't sign for three teams in a season



27 Jan 2013 08:05:55
Huddersfield now looking at Adkins, coyle, Karl Robinson, Peter Clarke as a player manager or Ian Bennett as a player manager plus Duane Holmes has got interest from Everton and Newcastle ALL from very close source

Rubbish, save everybodys time and stop posting rubbish.

We should of got Chris woods from west brom to late now though he's at Leicester

27 Jan 2013 12:11:35
What a daft post why would peter Clarke become player manager?

Can't see Adkins going to Huddersfield personally. His stock is at an all time high after the way he was treated by cortese. Would expect him to wait until the summer unless something like the Leeds job came up.

Listened to Sean Jarvis talking at the club yesterday, he said they had received over 50 applicants for the job but the chairman knew who he wanted. No one will become player manager that's just daft. Duane Holmes is a true talent but Town are not going to let any of their promising academy players move anytime now.

Peter Clarke as player manager? You must be joking, we need an experienced manager not some wanna be manager. Robinson won't come while their still in the FA cup. Adkins is my choice but to be honest I think he will want another premiership club with villa looking favourites.
Owen coyle, did a good job at Burnley and at Bolton

Apart from Adkins....are you deluded or something?

27 Jan 2013 14:47:49
karl robinson to HTFC no chance he can't even get a teem out of league 1 failed 3 times so far, he is league 1 manager paul ince no garry Neville no nobody knows except the HTFC Chairman so Town fans don't belive all the dross that's posted on here.

Adkins would rather go to leeds.Only a desperate leeds fan could have written that posting

If Karl Robinson came here i'd never go again, let him bore the backside off the Southerners. Mid table wonder kid



27 Jan 2013 07:59:32
Reading and Blackburn are interested in Tottenham winger David Bentley on loan. Also reading are looking at Blackpools Tom ince after hijacking him off Liverpool and reading are offering Blackpool want they want.

Can't see either of these happening... David Bentley is no better than Jimmy Kebe and Bentley is just looking to steal another club for a pay day for as long as possible. Tom Ince has Liverpool written all over him and I would be amazed if he goes anywhere other than Liverpool plus reading never spend big .So neither of these will happen

Can't see us spending 8+ on Ince. Don't want Bentley either.

All of the reading dc rumours above are on the sky Sunday gossip column which has not been correct in getting hold of a true rumour in ages. In Brian we trust and he is under no illusions that reading are going to spend 8 million on a player and his transfer targets are well thought through with the financial fair play coming in next season I think we will be in a stronger position than lots of other clubs!! Don't forget Brian's bargains have got us where we are



27 Jan 2013 03:31:03
Warnock about to sign foe west ham tonight



27 Jan 2013 02:15:23
Lots of news to be heading into the Swindon camp this week! new owners will be announced on Wednesday, with a deal already been pend on paper!

youth team and welsh internationals; Aaron Oakley and Louis Thompson have both been offered pro contracts and have 2 weeks to decide, Louis is close to signing, But aaeon has offers from mersyside pair, Liverpool and everton, which the funds could be a big help for Swindon to improve their squad when the owners come in. suspected to be a fee of around £300, 00 for the 6ft 5 18 year old.

Chris smith the Samsung win a pro contract winner, is to be realised in the coming days as the contract was only a year, and is no favour for Di Canio. only making one sub appearance.

Gary Madine is set to transfer to town after a season long loan from shelffield Wednesday.

Harry reddknapp is a good friend of Di Canio, and has 3 players he has offered to paolo on a free loan deals, one of there is their newely signed 16 year old Egyptian midfielder. Akhu Meditu. The 6ft 8 midfielder is now officially the tallest in the football league and will fit in perfectly to paolos team.

Noway will you get £300k for the lad from the youth team. EPP rules have set in place compensation figures for youngsters from Acadamies. The higher ranked the academy the more the compensation received.

Will never happen, Swindon are about to enter administration for the third time.No doubt the FL will not like this at all

Swindon are not entering administaration, they are being bought by new owners early this week.



27 Jan 2013 02:13:42
Bristol city are to bid £400,000 for the young Walsall forward Jamie Paterson, Paterson has been recommended to O'Driscoll by his new assistant Richard O'Kelly who was recently the assistant manager at the league one side until he linked up with the Robins

Veteran midfielder Jody Morris is rumoured to be loaned out to the league one side as part of the deal to bring Paterson to Ashton Gate

Jody Morris is going back to st Johnstone

Jamie Paterson is on his way, but the fee is closer to 200k

Jamie paterson won't leave walsall till the summer I have not heard anything about that rumour anyway



26 Jan 2013 22:42:26
Southampton fc in talks to sign Valencia CF young winger Juan bernat.

He has a 20 mil release clause and has a deal that runs to 2015. I think saints fans can forget this one.



26 Jan 2013 23:18:09
Paul Lambert set to resign as Aston Villa manager and Nigel Atkins is top of the list to take over by the end of the week and bring in Rickie Lambert with him.

If this was true you would be at least able to spell Adkins name!

Lambert NEVER resigns, he engineers his exits and doesn't leave any friends behind. if he goes it'll cost you.

U won't get lambert fella! Far too good for Villa

27 Jan 2013 11:05:04
complete horse twaddle i'm afraid. Lerner has never sacked anyone mid-season before and he won't start now. he prefers giving managers a chance, just look at last year! And well just think about it, what could adkins do differently? lambert is the better man manager anyhow, if anyone will get it working he will.
and i'm a norwich fan btw..

Why would Rickie Lambert go to Villa, just can't think of any reason he would. I just imagine some people doing these posts must be bored and think things up just to see what the reaction is. Very odd.

You mean the Lambert who is rumoured to have criticesed Adkins tactical ability at Saints? Get to know your football before posting such nonsense.

As a united fan, i'd say villa are just in a slump, they have far too much quality to be relegated & lambert is far too good to get them relegated!

27 Jan 2013 20:28:59
why would adkins do any better than current man.



26 Jan 2013 22:41:50
Saw a couple of blokes in Wolves coats today near the Directors box. Cya Jamie Ward

Why would they be wearing Wolves coats ? ..... bizarre statement.

27 Jan 2013 13:11:24
perhaps they were cold



26 Jan 2013 22:41:26
Danny Kedwell of Gillingham off to Millwall

How Many More Times? Danny Kedwell IS NOT LEAVING!

Kedwell is staying and millwall would not be interested, he's just an ok player....

Don't want him. League 2 and he's like 30.

Dave Bessant at Gills yesterday scouting for Bristol Rovers

Nobody with any sense would take him on! No pace, lacks any sort of positional play and is 2 stone overweight! The gills can keep him! We would rather have Akinfenwa lol

To the joker above. You'd rather have Akinfenwa? He is older, more overweight and has no pace too.

Must be someone outthere who want kedwell. Please please someone come and buy him.

Well Gavin Tomlin will sign for the gills this week. Kedwell may be used as part of the deal. Jackman is making a shock move to Kidderminster. Strevens is going to the daggers.



26 Jan 2013 22:20:49
Tottenham are set to sign Coutinho after bidding 9.8m.

He is signing with Liverpool tonight for 13mill done and dusted



27 Jan 2013 01:28:57
Bristol city are very keen on aldershots Daniel Hylton after seeing his cup heroics at the riverside they believe he's ready to make the step up

If that's true then i'm sure there will be a few teams interested in the goalkeeper jamie young after his performance aswell



27 Jan 2013 01:03:46
Pompey set to sign Bournemouth striker matt tubbs on a month to month basis as he's looking for first team football heard it here first

Highly doubt it, a much more financially better of team (rotheram) have been after him for the last 3 months, and they could pay all his wages so if bournemouth wanted to offload he'd be going there to link up with his old manager, pie eater steve evans

Matt tubbs is a valuable member of the squad at afcb, I'M SURE HE WILL GET HIS TURN. With wes thomas looking to move on this week, we will need tubbs to be firing on all cylinders!

27 Jan 2013 18:36:52
About as likely as Oldham beating Liverpool - Ohhhh!



26 Jan 2013 22:11:16
