28 Jan 2010 16:24:26

David Jones is 'completely devastated' at the recent events surrounding Cardiff City and the home game against Doncaster on Saturday will be his last for the club.

Jones is putting his family home in Porthcawl up for sale (I have a contact in Peter Alan Estate Agents and they have been asked to value his home), and taking his children out of their respective schools.

Where is Jones heading? Well, a strong shout is Derby as Nigel Clough's position is extremely tenable. If Derby lose this weekend, it's likely they will make a move for him.

Blackpool are also interested, and Karl Oyston wants Ian Holloway out of Bloomfield Road. However, Blackpool might be a step down for Jones who is highly thought of as a manager in the Championship. On the other hand, it could be a good challenge for him.

Plenty of Championship sides, and a few Premiership ones too, would definitely be interested in acquiring Jones' service.

Benitez is not looking to move to Juve nor are the owners looking to sack him. They are working on a longer term strategy. Rafa wants a clearout of around 6 players in the summer who will be directly replaced. Out will be Babel (if not in Jan), Aurelio, Masch, Skrtel, Benayoun or Riera, and Degen. It is too early to say who is being lined up as Benitez has a long list of targets.

Tired of reading the same old wishfull thinking on this page, here IS what is going to materialise before end of this window.

liverpool only, as my source would surprise you, and is not to be revealed. this is my first and only post on here, congratulate me in 3 days please.

Babel out ( there are a few possibilities its up to him and his agent to decide)

huntelaar will sign over the weekend on loan.
Only if a certain D.Villa can't reach an agreement with valencia over his contract. Liverpool have everything in place, fee and contracts with club and player.

that will be all, no full backs – confirmed.

ps – a certain Michael Owen is willing to apologise to LFC fans not for his departure to madrid but for signing for mufc, he recognises the error and still desires to rejoin the reds, he is doing his utmost in the background to force a release, and club officials and senior players at anfield (u know who) will publicly back his return.

i will take my bow on Monday.

Jones will not be joining now or in the summer.


28 Jan 2010 15:19:03
Palemo centre back Simon Kjaer as just announced his desire to move to Liverpool in this transfer window.

Rafa is also waiting a reply from Stephen Warnock to come back to the club. Rafa as offered him Carragher's vice captains arm band at the end of next season to get his man. Babel as been offered to Sunderland on loan till the end of the season and Rafa is looking at Theo Walcott and Turan to fill his boots in the summer or if he can raise the money Turan coming in this window.

I know Tony Pulis plays his cards close to his chest but this is getting ridiculous! Has anyone out there got any Stoke City rumours?


28 Jan 2010 13:32:31
Whoever said Arsenal are planning to spend £111 million during the summer bringing players must play the same fantasy football that most Liverpool FC fans who post here do. Arsenal and wily Wenger do have funds but nothing more than approx £15 million – why do you think that the majority of the team are under 22? Now, genuine rumours. Babel and approx £2.5 million will leave for Sunderland on the last day of the transfer window, with Jones travelling to Anfield. Steve Bruce is reluctant but Jones wants to leave. The Pool won't buy anyone else, they don't have the funds. Anderson will leave Man U, probably on loan; Ferguson is a huge fan of Anderson's technical skills but feels he hasn't yet gelled into the team. Anderson has also stated his desire for regular first team action in order to boost his chances of getting into the Brazilian World Cup squad. Nani won't leave, as he and the unproven Tosic are Ferguson's only cover on the left wing for Giggs. Neville will be let go in the summer to a lower league team, with the promise of a job at Old Trafford when he retires. The Vidic saga will end this week when he states he will leave Old Trafford in the Summer.


28 Jan 2010 13:59:21
Eddie Nolan has had a big fall out with new manager Darren Ferguson – heard from someone within the club that he is off to either Wolves or Wigan for £500k.

TRUST ME



28 Jan 2010 12:37:10
Owen just been at preston training ground talking to mellor {editor's note – they should know each other well from their time at Liverpool. Mellor certainly knows a certain Mr Rooney very well as he was the other lad that, er how shall I put this, knocked about with him at a time that made the papers. If you get my drift.}


28 Jan 2010 12:37:19
The hoops and Hearts have agreed a fee for Lee Wallace, WGS trying to hijack but as he wants Mick, letting that happen will get him to back off and wallace should sign and make his debut at the weekend.


28 Jan 2010 12:44:27

Bristol City, Swindon Town, Leeds United and Peterborough are chasing Exeter's Ryan Harley.
Yeovil meanwhile want Tottenham kiddie Radwan Hamed on loan, as Sam Williams could be joining Shrewsbury, if their move for John O'Flynn falls through. Its all one big complicated cycle of nonsense as you can see. If we just kept all our own players, wouldn't the world be a nicer place?


28 Jan 2010 12:48:05
Aberdeen will sign Sunderland striker David Healy on loan until the end of the season.


28 Jan 2010 12:55:05

After seeing the team take apart Man City, Fergie has a little more faith in the squad and will not buy until the summer. He thinks the current squad can make a good go of it until then, and transfer activity will not be huge.
The following will happen for the most part, some depending on how players' finish the season.

GK – OUT – Foster (£5million)
IN – David de Gea (£5million, Atletico Madrid)
VDS will make 10/11 his final season, and de Gea and Kuscszak will battle it out to be his successor, alternating in cup and lesser league games. I would prefer a more established, bigger name, but this is 90% certain

DEF – OUT – Vidic (£25million, Barcelona)
IN – Simon Kjaer (£14million, Palermo)
Chris Smalling (£8million, Fulham)
Neville will make 10/11 his last season before retirement; Rafael MAY be loaned out, depending on whether O'Shea makes a good recovery. Smalling will be brought on slowly, and Rio will be partnered by Kjaer and Evans on an alternating basis. Kjaer has now seen United are THE team in Manchester and will reject Citeh

MID – OUT – Anderson (£13million, Fluminese)
Zoran Tosic (£5million, bundesliga)
Park Ji–Sung (£5million, Birmingham)
Owen Hargreaves (retired)
Danny Welbeck (potential loan)
IN – Stevan Defour (£14million, S.Liege)
Moussa Sissoko (£17million, Toulouse)
SAF will ship out Anderson following their degenerating relationship, and bring in his long–admired target Defour. Gibson may also be loaned out for 6months, no big–name winger will be bought yet.

FOR – OUT – Michael Owen (released)
Federico Macheda (loan, Newcastle)
Dimitar Berbatov (£14million, Valencia)
IN – Karim Benzema (£25million, Real Madrid
SAF will finally relent and let Berba leave, replacing him with Benzema. Macheda may get a short–term loan deal, with Diouf acting as backup for Rooney and Benzema

These will all come to pass, red sky at night, fergie's delight!!!!


28 Jan 2010 13:09:27
Need real manchester united rumours asap !!!!


28 Jan 2010 10:15:16
Iv heard some great rumours.
Birmingham will sign Roman Pavelyuchenko and either hunt/mcgeady/babel.Nicky Shorey is a player they could bring in on loan to the end of the season.
Arsenal will get no1 in this window thou the summer could be busy cause if they win nothing this year AW will be under pressure for the 1st time.A new goalkeeper will come in for sure.After losing out on smalling AW will re–new his interest in Gary Cahill and if Bolton go down they could get him on the cheap.The only thing Wenger said Arsenal are lacking is a 'box to box' centre midfielder and their is rumours of scott parker if he can prove his fitness.If not Fellaini wil be a target if Everton don't get into Europe.Edin Dzeko could be bought in and also Chamakh on the free.Hazard or Young will be brought in to play wide.Arsenal have already tried for Hazard but could be priced out by RM.
So in the summer.
Manuel Neuer/Igor Akinfeev
Gary Cahill/Martin Caceres
Scott Parker/Marouane Fellaini
Ashley Young/Eden Hazard
Edin Dzeko/Marouane Chamakh
Arsenal are linked with those players and i would expect 4/5 of those to come in during the summer.


28 Jan 2010 10:22:34
Sheffield Wednesday:


Brandon Crook – Free from Frickly Athletic

(Only if the promiced investment at the end of the month comes in)

28 Jan 2010 08:23:06
The Benitez move to Juvetus seems to be gaining momentum, with Kuyt set to follow him .. Also Benayoun to Russia, apparently Dynamo Moscow have agreed terms. I hope only the first is true..


28 Jan 2010 08:38:37
Listen , i have genuine rumours , Rooney going to try his hand in spain with Barcelona, after the world cup.
He belives it may be the right time for a change.
I was out in town with jermaine defoe and huddlestone and the rumour amongst the top players is the EPL standard is dropping and they belive more and more big names will leave the EPL , like Ruud chose Hamburg, Ronaldo , alonso, benzema, Kaka, all joined spain.
Also expect Steven(not interested) Gerrard to leave for Barca to, for around 25 million. Red fans think hes worth more but he is 30, and has not looked great.
Also jay spearing to go on loan to palace. Jay and me go way back , and he said he would have preferred to stay North west , but he wants to prove himself.
And my Last fact ( not Rumour ) is Roy HOdgson is considering coming to manage sunderland, as steve bruce is struggling , and roy has been offered more transfer kitty.
You heard it here jeff the new banks

Barnsley in talks to sign elliot ward but want to involve john macken in the deal


28 Jan 2010 09:10:05
While watching the posh lose to PNE the other night, I got chatting to a Bolton Scout watching one of the PNE players.

With a little more digging, seems Bolton are after Andy Lonergan the Preston Goal Keeper. Didn't help with our loss but cheered me up knowing one of our relegation teams is losing a very good goal keeper.

A colleagues girlfriend sister (who knows nothing about football) who works at a local hospital mentioned that 2 players had medicals for WHU at the local hospital she worked at. One was certainly Benny Mccarthy (she saw his first name as Benedict) which is well known but the other is a unknown foreign player who spoke very little English!


28 Jan 2010 09:45:24
Liverpool will sign Jeremy Menez on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a £5m permanent transfer worth £45, 000 per week on a 4 year deal. Rafa will not sign a right back as Martin Kelly has returned but do not count out an 11th hour £5.5m swoop for Boro star Adam Johnson, snatching him from under the nose of Man City and Chelsea.


28 Jan 2010 09:51:50
Any True LIVERPOOL rumours please


28 Jan 2010 01:07:58
I've just been out with a some directors from my firm, a credit specialist in Nottm, althouh I work in the Liverpool office.

Here's what I learned from one diretcor who is well conected at Forest.

Moses deal is looking likely, but as expected the administrators will give it a day more to see if they can drum up a better fee.

Shorey is available on a permanent and a deal can be done on wages, but Villa must sign a replacement first. Fox from celtic is considered excellent cover for them as is some lad from Bolton whos name I didn't catch/recognise.

Majewski is a done deal. £1.5m.

The surpise package is Gary O'Neil. Boro don't want to sell but the player wants to be playing prem football next season and is not convincecd that Boro will get there.

Lee Young–Pyo wants to move back to Europe after a short spell in Saudi Arabia with Al–Hilal. He is prepared to join League One side Leeds United on loan until the end of the season.

Brazilian, Thiago Neves is also on West Ham's radar but it is unlikely a work permit would be granted.

Veteran Portuguese midfielder Bruno Ribeiro will join Bradford City.

Ribeiro is still friends with Bradford goalkeeping coach Nigel Martyn from their days together at Leeds. Ribeiro is currently at Vitoria Setubal, but rarely gets a game.

There will be no more signings by lfc this window and also no big signings in the summer. they could well sign jovanovic and chamakh but they will be free transfers. they need to sell some players first before they can do anything to ease the wage bill.

Just in from the Celtic – Hibs game, and after another poor home performance it is blatantly obvious that more change is needed. Stories doing the rounds in the pub before and after game are. Ins – Lee Wallace (Hearts, £1m) Ross McCormack (Cardiff, £2.25m). That will be all the ins, after the sigings of Ki, Hooiveld, Rasmussen, Rogne that will be a spend of nearly £10m in January. Outs will include McManus (£1m, Boro) Fox (£1.75m, Burnley) McDonald (£3.25m, Wigan) McCourt (loan, Blackpool)to go with Killen, Flood, Robson and Caldwell, an income of around £8m..not bad business if the new boys can hit the ground running. The league is not over, but one more point dropped at home and it will be. Hail Hail..john r

Liverpool to do the dirty on spurs (like spurs did to West Ham) and hijack Eidur Gudjohnsen's loan move. It will only be temporary as Rafa has bigger targets in mind for summer. There is to much competition for starting places in spurs strike force, where as Liverpool only really have 2 experienced strikers in Torres and Kuyt. Ngog not ready, Babel set to leave on last day of the window.

Some good news for Chester fans.

Have heard that a buyer is eyeing up the club, and he is some relation to Redrow owner Steve Morgan.

Could be a sliver lining..?


28 Jan 2010 00:23:58
Robinho could join Arsenal in the summer for £25million pounds. Wenger sounded him out as the player he wants most in the summer. Robinho feels he still has something to prove in the premiership. Wenger the man to help him realise his potential.

Cardiff City News:

Last night I was at the stadium, and Ridsdale and Jones were at each others throats, quite literally, after the bombshell news broke on their club website.

Jones is fuming that he has not been told the whole truth, and is already speaking with a number of clubs – Coventry City are interested in taking him on, as well as Barnsley and Derby County.

Derby may well make a move soon, as they are rudder–less under Clough and Jones has far more experience of managing at this level.

I have close relations with people at Arsenal. You can make stuff up all you want, but basically Arsenal have two "hard" targets and a bunch of soft targets and they are not restricted by a winter timeline.

The two players in the world they really want are EDEN HAZARD and EDIN DZEKO. Full stop. This does not mean that they will sign these players this winter, or that they will even sign them at all. But these are the two Arsene will try to have by the end of the summer. But if ManU, Man City, or RM price them out of either player, then Arsene will not pay a ridiculous fee.

The rest of the players "rumoured" to come to Arsenal may be bought on the basis of need (lots of injuries or a surprise summer defection like Flamini or a sale for a too–good–to–be–true price like Adebayor) but it is impossible to predict whom.

It is also hard to predict who will be leaving. At one point, in the summer of '08 for instance, they were ready to get rid of Gallas. Suddenly they found themselves in need and kept him. Right now I wouldn't try to speculate, and I hear better info than most of you.

27 Jan 2010 22:27:01
Wigan will sign Fryatt from Leicester for 2.5m and Ben Watson before the transfer deadline.


27 Jan 2010 22:28:16
To the guy/girl who posted about Peter Ridsdale yesterday..

That was the most accurate post about Cardiff City – I reckon your post on here was the reason for the statement on their official site today! Talk about striking gold!

Anyway, Cardiff City rumours:

Ledley – Celtic (pre–contract)
Whittingham – Stoke
Bothroyd – Stoke
Chopra – Fulham
Matthews – Arsenal
Marshall – Stoke (if Sorensen goes, and Simonsen can find a new club – heard Wigan want him as cover for Kirkland).
Wildig – Man Utd (but Villa also said to be interested)

Ridsdale OUT! (although he will be at the end of the me, I have information)


27 Jan 2010 22:29:40
Some quite astonishing news coming out of Deepdale.

North End have launched an ambitious bid for former star winger Simon Whaley, thought to be £2.75 million.

Whaley has fallen out of favour with Paul Lambert the Norwich manager over training intensity at Norwich, Whaley believes Lambert is making him try too hard.

It's 50/50 at the moment as Norwich don't want to lose a player of such quality despite his issues with Lambert.

Ferguson is a big admirer of the talented and pacey winger and is trying his best to get the star to make an astonishing return to the home of football.


27 Jan 2010 22:34:42
Bristol City will up their interest in Hibs manager John Hughes.

I'm an insider at Manchester United and can confirm that Anderson will join Vasco de Gama this month. A deal has been agreed to bring Luca Modric to OT on a 4 year deal next season, personal terms have been agreed. The transfer fee will be in excess of 22 million.
Joe Cole to replace Modric at Spurs
