= v1=

  OK, here are some more Tottenham rumours. Tottenham have secured a deal believed to be worth £15.8 million for

Dynamo Zagreb winger Luca Modric. David Villa/Samuel

Eto'o will be brought in up front if Berbatov leaves

and Aiden McGeady, Carlos Kameni and David Bentley could all still be brought in. If Valencia go down then Villa could be bought for as little as £5 million.

Come on you Tottenham.

  Portsmouth Ins are Crouch (12 million), Mensah (6 million), aubey (3 million), lopez (6 million + mendes), Lennon (11 million), d'allessandro (8 million) and jonas Gutierrez (5 million + lauren). out will be mendes and Lauren (part exchange), campbell to Villarreal for £2 million, kanu (fc sydney) for £2 million, baros' loan will not come to anything and either Davis or Diop will also be leaving

  Barry and young both to stay at villa, read on site that Carson leaving Liverpool for £8 million. try halving it because that is all his worth.

Ins for villa

Cudicini £4 million, Guzcan £3 million, Boswinga £10 million, Davies £9 million, Sidwell £5 million, Beattie £6 million and a back up centre half


Sorenson free, Carson return loan, Berger free, Mellberg free, Moore £5 million.

All possibly could happen but Barry ain't going nowhere.

  The Hammers will offer Alan Curbishley a job as Director Of football and will bring in a hogh profile manager. Martin Jol looks to be favourite because he has conversations with Gudmansson, however he also intends on interviewing Roberto Mancini once he leave Inter at the end of the season. The new manager is guarenteed £20 million to spend and maybe a few more Mills as the Chairman wants the Hammers in Europe by next season.

  Curbishley will be sacked at end of season and replaced by Martin Jol who will spend mills.


Luca Toni (12 million)

Hampsik (10 million)

Adriano (Loan for season)

and a few foreign youngsters, coming to about £30 million spent this Summer.

  The Hammers will move into Olympic stadium after the 2012 olympics they have struck a deal with head orginisation as they need more money to fund the event, this stadium will be extended so that it is appropiate for 60,000 fans. They will also have a huge Summer with up to ten players brought in, Curbishley's wish list for transfers is very ambitous.

  MANCHESTER UNITED have signed 22 year old Striker Mario Gomez from VfB Stuttgart for £15 million pounds.

  Arsenal 2 get jonas from Mallorca ahead of Portsmouth. also coupet of lyon. as well as kranjcar as part of an agreement when Diarra joined Pompey from Arsenal. goonerboy

  Manchester City to tempt Shaun Wright–Phillips back to Eastlands to end his Chelsea nightmare. Sven has good relations with Shaun. Also expect bids for Peter Crouch and Roma's Mancini as he sees these three as the answer to Citys goal scoring problems. Benjani could be on his way already along with Michael Johnson who is rumoured to be close to signing for LFC. Micah to stay for another year at least to see if progress is made and Europe achieved.

Forget Ronaldinho. it is not going to happen.

  PLease first of all tell me why Celtic would sign Richard Offiong when we have Ben Hutchinson exactly.

Unless a new manager comes in there will not be drastic changes at Celtic with like eight players coming in.

Modric was not at Newcastle as he has signed for Tottenham for 15.8 million.

Celtic 3 in a row

  Crystal Palace star goalkeeper Julian Speroni is being watched by Rangers manager Walter Smith

  Bentley. Rodriguez, Amoribieta, Aguero, Heinze, Bosingwa and Pirlo are either signed or being negotitated

Samr Nasri is another but Liverpool want him there another season

Chelsea are the other big spenders Lahm, Barry, Villa, Queresma, Arteta, Deco, Krankjar and two cheeky bids for Kaka and Rooney both of which could come off as Rooney feels United will be in decline if as expected Ronaldo goes to MADRID

  I was at Upton Park against Newcastle and obviously I was very happy at seeing Paolo Di Canio there in his park getting a great reception. However when I left the stadium after fetting a few signatures for my son, there was Di Canio outside and he said to me he would be joining the club this Summer. I do not know whether that is as manager or a role under Curbishley but it is interesting news, which should make Curbishley feel uncomfortable.

  Luca Toni was spotted leaving Upton Park this weekend with Di Canio, the Italians are very good friends and apparently Toni could sign a deal for the Hammers.

  Just got back from Upton Park and I was sitting in a box near Di Canio, who strangley was joined by Luca Toni who looks set to sign. Another thing I saw yesterday was Di Canio and Luca Toni speaking to Scott Duxburry after the game. Very interesting looks to be an exciting Summer ahead for the Hammers.

  Randy Lerner has vowed to give O'Neill plenty of money to spend this Summer in order to keep Villa's top players at the club and so that the team can challenge for a top 4 place next season. If Villa finishfifth expect quality players to joIn:

Scott Carson

Brad Guzan


Van Buyten







They will we a few to leave this Summer as well:





Osbourne (loan)

  FIRST OFF. to all those people saying Modric is going to N/castle or "was at St. James Park today" – it is amazing how many times we hear of a player "at" a stadium THEN see pictures of him at another. YUP, he was at White Hart Lane today AND he's agreed personal terms AND the clubs have agreed a fee.

This will be a truly great signing for Tottenham and may just tempt Berbatov to stay put despite a fresh bid this Summer from Man United and Chelsea.

ANYWAY, here is the rumours. Ramos is looking at Alan MacGregor in a serious way but injury against Celtic may scupper the move. Alan (Hutton) has told me that Tottenham may be about to test Rangers resolve like they did with him and bid over £8 million for the goalie.

ANOTHER player has apparently been shown round Tottenham training complex and White Hart Lane but I cannot reveal this as yet as nothing has been agreed. If they pull this off (and there is a great chance they will) THIS will BE HUGE.

Rangers have made Klasnic number one target this Summer and will move before the Euros get under way. Also targeted is a French attacking midfielder who may be purchased on the cheap as he has slipped under the bigger clubs radars, a young Scottish centreback, a German rightback may also be coming to Ibrox. An exceptionally experienced 'holding' midfielder will be at Ibrox along with another capture from Osasuna (who has been looked at 3 times this season already.)

Will post names when I get official confirmation.

  Some rumours I have found out.

Queens Park Rangers will sign Lorenzo Amoruso–s. s. cosmos. (ITA)

Adrian Mutu being watched by David Moyes.

Joe Ledley. Cardiff–Portsmouth.

Andy Johnson Everton–the Hammers.

Shaun Wright–Phillips to join A. Villa

Gatusso Ac Mil–Man United.

  Have just heard 2 NUfc rumours from a good source.

2 swap deals in the wind at SJP. Viduka to Celtic for Aiden McGeady. Alan Smith Rangers for Carlos Cullar may cash involved as well not sure. Good deal for the mighty mags

  Some news from the famous Glasgow Rangers here, big spending in the Summer after an unpresedented succesfull season firstly out will be going:









And in will be

Steve Davies 2 mil

George Mccartney 500 k

Alan Smith – 3.5 mil

Tonel – 2 mil

and another two players will including another forward and a right back, not sure who though.

  Met El Hadji Diouf on Thursday night in Manchester, desperate to leave Bolton in the Summer, Everton, Manchester City, Villa and Valencia have all shown interest (he claims), preferred choice Everton to link up with his mate Yakubu.

  Derek Roirdan will be joining Plymouth in the close season in part exchange for Marcel seip the Dutch centre half. This was discussed in January but Plymouth wanted him on loan to assess the much discussed attitude problems. While agreed by Strachan/Sturrock it was blocked by higher up in the chain. A loan move to Burnley was also blocked.


  Rumour has it around SFX that Matías Fernandez will sign for UNITED. He will play the left winger/forward role that Rooney has tried to play this week. The line will be a three prong attack with Mathi on the left and Ronaldo on the right. Nani will be part of the deal + £12 million. Boswinga will join for £8 million + loan deal for the Silva twins. Manucho will go on loan to Wigan as part of the deals for two players mentioned in the papers recently. All together there will be 4 incoming players– two from Wigan, Boswinga and Fernandez od Viilareal.

  liverpool news

With Rafa now having found a successful 4–2–3–1 formation, the new players will be able to fit into this system accordingly

RAFINHA (RB) – Done deal for around £7 mill

BENTLEY (RW/ACM) – A deal of £8 million + Pennant or £15 million without

BARRY (CM/LM/LB) – Around the £12 million mark, as Barry is intent on leaving Villa for Champs League football

Total spend = £27–32 mill

Due to the board wrangling at Anfield, Rafa will only be given around £20 million to spend, so must find the rest from selling the following:

RIISE – £5 million, interest from Newcastle

PENNANT – Either Part/ex or £5 million

VORONIN – £2.5 million, still very highly rated in Germany despite not doing it in the prem

ITANJE – £1 million, like Voronin will be plenty of interest from France where he is rated

Despite the incoming players, ALONSO will stay and rotate with Barry and Masch in the middle, CROUCH will only leave for £10 million + same goes for KUYT, both still very much in Rafa's plans, FINNAN will likely leave if a bid of over £3 million comes in, HYYPIA has signed a year's extension already, but KEWELL will finally be given the boot after having more than enough chances to prove his fitness

  Liverpool Summer transfers: With DIC taking over, expect big signings to prove to the fans they mean business. INS: Gareth Barry, David Villa, David Bentley, Rafinha, Mark Schwarzer. OUTS: John Arne Riise – Newcastle, Andriy Voronin – Back to Germany, Kewell – Celtic, Steve Finnan – Portsmouth/Sunderland, Charles Itandje –?. MB

  Who ever put that Fergie will spend 54 million in the Summer is living in a dream worl maybe £30 million at the very most

and who ever said Bentley is going to Celtic is also in fantsay land Liverpool have already agreed a deal to sign him for around £8 million + Pennant

also Liverpool may be looking to sign Nasri as they hav had scouts ad most of his games for the past two months

dawson Lfc 4eva

  Aaron Lennon's cousin claims his move to Liverpool is almost a done deal. Bentley being the smoke screen.

  WGS to be replaced by o'leary. the septic fans will be happy with that. on to the civilised end of Glasgow, guttuso will sign for Rangers along with Steven Davis in the Summer, also expect to see 2 big names join, one defender and one forward. WATP
