Five clubs are set to battle it out to sign Doncaster midfielder Giles Barnes after telling the Championship club he is in demand, saying he would like to leave the club in the summer if they get relegated.
Championship promotion chasers Middlesbrough are keen on Barnes as they look for new recruits for either the top flight or another promotion push next season.
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has made a bid for the former Derby player and could snap him up before the vultures circle if he can oofer him a four year deal before the season ends.
The third Championship club wanting Barnes is Bristol City. Barnes is thought to be keen to pseaking to City boss Derek McInnes but would only consider joining them if they stay in the league.
Uruguayan champions Nacional, who have a huge chance of winning the Copa Libertadores, are keen on signing Barnes and are willing to offer the 23 year old a lucrative three year deal.
Finally, Premier League giants Arsenal are keen to offer Barnes a trial during the summer as Arsene Wenger feels he could reach his potential of being a top flight star.(6)(28)

podolski to arsenal 10.6m
krasic to tottenham loan
eriksen to man.u 20m
higuain to 35m
gignac to fulham 6m
keita to liverpool 12m
henrique to qpr loan
other transfers
gunter to norwich 2m
mc.clerey to norwich free
doyle to everton 5.5m
m.phillips to stoke 3m(14)(18)No way m Phillips is worth 3m from what i saw on Saturday, seems to be all hype to meInteresting to see that you know who Chelsea are going to buy but you don't know who the manager is going to be...

If I remember rightly it was AVB singing the praises of Hulk so now he's gone that might be off now...Henrique going to QPR on loan will be a move to the Championship not the PL.Can't see Hulk or Hazard or joining Chelsea unless they have Champs league football......... Not looking likely.

With the financial fair play restrictions also they can't throw obscene money at them either.Pretty sure Keita is out of contract in the summer, and even if he wasn't 12 million for him, not only is he very average at best he's 32 years old.


27 Mar 2012 17:58:30

27 Mar 2012 17:48:58
wigan are believed to be targeting cristian rodriguez of porto on a free transfer in the summer(13)(11)Thats if nobody else wants him.


27 Mar 2012 17:36:49
martinez will attempt to sign julien faubert for free in the summer and then get him to persuade pablo barrera to join. tchoyi, taylor fletcher and jamie gavilan are free transfer targets and then that will be wigans transfers done for the summer(8)(9) 

Faubert is not out of contract and barera doesnt want to play in the championship plus we are likely to go up and u go down28 Mar 2012 18:11:03



27 Mar 2012 17:34:58
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has offered Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Grounds the chance to link up with the Premier League club on a trial in the summer.(12)(6)Dude is rubbish not even good enough for Yeovil town


27 Mar 2012 16:29:04
Norwich City are preparing to bid for Colombian international Jackson Martinez in the summer transfer window(7)(25)Not going to happen - he's valved at about 8.5 million which is out of Norwich's reach. I think someone has been playing FIFA 12.


27 Mar 2012 16:04:28
Mark Lawrenson and Alan Hansen
to help King Kenny to end of season if
BBC give go ahead {Ed025's Note - cant see it mate, they have both avoided management like the plague!...they are quite comfortable in their chairs, and have not got the bottle to help anyone..(9)(29)There do better than the clown they have
there now!Match of the day will miss them.Mark lawrenson had an awful stint as a managerSo would this be that 'King' (in whose eyes I don't know) Kenny is not the Messiah, and despite a big spend at Liverpool he has not improved them?Wouldn't this be wonderful?! The thought of watching Hansen pick apart his own defensive failings...Liverpool owners will control the management having seen Daglish spending so much and going no where fast, daglish will be out replaced by a proper football manager.Spot on ed .its easy to be a highly paid .going by what hansen says nobody should ever you say he will never put it into practice as he would be shown up for the prat he is.


27 Mar 2012 15:48:18
Glen hoddle been seen at Liverpool
training ground with the owners.
Dalglish looked very upset has he been
sacked? {Ed025's Note - thats all liverpool need...another nut job ..(9)(34)You must have a really sad life to print absolute CRAP like this!Thats rubbish, apparently Hoddle has been spotted on the ring road near Molineux in a car with Paul Ince and Big Sam .Liverpool dont want a no hoper like hoddle he made a balls of the england job when he had the pick of the cream in the premier and other leagues a good footballer he was as a manager crapGlen hoddle did a good job as england manager and if becks hadnt been sent off we would of been in the semis of the world cup plus those disabled comments are not true


27 Mar 2012 15:17:18
THURSDAY LUNCH FACT(30)(15)Not another copying Pompey, we'll take Gary McSheffrey to Ipswich to partner ChopraI hope so - Bristol City need all the help to avoid relegationTick Tock its 5pm Thursday 29th March and no sign of Coventry going into administration, what a load of BS some reprt on here


27 Mar 2012 14:57:22

Brian Howard would like a returnto Barnsley fc says

27 Mar 2012 12:28:43
Steve Fletcher (Bournemouth) is on loan at Plymouth - a fact reported last week and he travelled with the squad to play Northampton. Would expect him to be involved in the next couple of matches, most likely from the bench(5)(3)


27 Mar 2012 12:04:53
Robbie Fowler has been spotted at ryton and is believed to be the unnamed trialist, expected to have agreed a deal by friday but wont be involved in the trip to hull.(5)(14)


27 Mar 2012 11:04:28
Any interest in balasz dzsudzak? Natural winger that hasnt really hit the ground running in Russia as of yet. Watched him play for psv a while ago and thought he was class(2)(8)


27 Mar 2012 09:44:21
King Kenny set to leave Liverpool, reports that Jose Mourinho will be interested in the job.(28)(68)About time!Don't be so stupid!Yeah Jose 'I love the Europa League' Mourinho. That's who Liverpool will get...Why would Jose want that job?!? Why do Liverpool fans (I have to assume ur a reds fan from the post) think they can attract world class people? they would be lucky if sven took the job!!

YaoOh yeah. Mourinho wuld definitely be interested in managing a mediocre mid-table team going nowhereI very much doubt it, the only clubs he will go to is one in the champions league. so these are the options if he leaves real madrid.
1.manchester utd) doubt sir alex ferguson will leave or even get sacked that will be unheard of.
2 manchester city) most likely team he would go to, for obvious reasons best players in the prem and the biggest budget.
3 arsenal) same with Man Utd doubt Wenger will leave or get sacked. but always a swap possibility plus arsenal are one of the richest football clubs in europe (5th in europe income behind bayern munich, real madrid, man utd and barcelona),plus don't have any debt unlike most top clubs so they can afford big players. but i doubt they will spend a lot, they have a very profit orientated board.
4 tottenham) always a slight chance if harry leaves to go to england however Mourinho could always join tottenham because they have a great football side, however tottenham will have a small budget not to the liking of Mourinho .


27 Mar 2012 08:31:51
Liverpool will go shopping in the Eredivise again with Luke de Jong and Vernon Anita. Anita would provide cover in a variety of positions and de Jong could spearhead the attack along with Suarez.(17)(11)Anita Dobson, would provide better cover than the current 11.


27 Mar 2012 08:28:56
Claudio Ranieri could be set for a return to the Premiership and London as boss of West Ham United.

I have insider news from Upton Park that Big Sam has had a bust up with the owners, and is unhappy there - as a result the last 6 games have only seen a 6 point return for the promotion hopefuls.

The bust-up centers on finance, which is a sticking point now that West Ham are looking unlikely to want to move to Stratford, and also Big Sam has secretly been taking trips to see Adrian Bevington at The FA. Watch this space.(17)(19)I think you'll find if Ranieri does come back to the UK, it'll be in the Championship with West Ham.... Not the Premiership...Yea, bit early to say premiership...good luck in play offs. You gave quality players, but a sht manager. Hoofball is for sunday league. Reading are under rated, and can see them putting daylight between 2nd and 3rd on saturday.If Sam Allardyce has really been making secret trips to visit Adrian Bevington then there can be only one reasonable conclusion drawn: they are having an illicit love affair. No other reason for anyone at the FA to secretly entertain Big Sam...Big Sam a bad manager..... Thats a very rash comment to make. He did wonders with Bolton, just look where they are now. And got sacked at Blackburn when they where 10th now look where they are now. West Ham brought in far too many players that werent needed which will naturally upset the balance of the team. Like why buy Vaz Te? He had two good games against Leeds and thats it. Quality over quantity, thats where West Ham are going wrong. {Ed025's Note - i agree with the previous post...big sam is a very poor manager, when he has money to spend, he can be classed as average, but when there is no dosh available..he is pantsBig sam hurry up and join wolves we are waiting for you please come home.So they are going to sack a manager going into the final few games of the season in a promotion battle ok mate.


26 Mar 2012 21:47:22
Rumours suggest wigan athletic are in to make one of the biggest deals of there summer transfer history. R.Martinez squad might seem full but has plans in case wigan drop to the championship. Abou diaby(arsenal),Gary Taylor-fletcher (Blackpool),Damien Alvarez(Cruz azul),Pablo Berrara(real zaragoza) are by private/personal rumour put on the got-to-have lists.Although Rodallega might leave for arsenal things might hot up for the wiganers as the season nears its feared end.R.Martinez feels the heat...(8)(12)HOLY....... thats impressive!BullstBarera doesnt like playing in the championship


26 Mar 2012 14:01:41
Villa hope to beat Napoli to sign Inters Goran Pandev on a permanent deal, Norwich duo Russell Martin & Anthony Pilkington are also wanted, various youngsters for the lower leagues continue to be scouted by the midland club.(6)(35)I wish mate but i just don't see it happening really.Why would a player choose Aston Villa over Inter?!Or Napoli even...You lot are just a little club now sooner you realise this the better.The way the premier league results have been going lately you may be selling players as you may be in the championshipIf pilkinghton leaves norwich he can do better than villa. Very poo this season


26 Mar 2012 13:32:51
westley will return to stevenage in the summer to sign a few of his old players ,byrom,charles,bostwick are a few names on his list ,but bostwick will move to a championship club(2)(6)Where is the money going to come from?Pne have money but he will only be able to buy in the summerMark roberts will be pne captain next season and joel byrom will follow him to deepdale watch this space.Forgot abt roberts both are out of contact in the summer ,Westley wont be at PNE come next season.......If he is.....why would they join a league 2 team?


26 Mar 2012 13:17:34
Huddersfield Town are looking North of the Border again to find new talent. Manager Simon Grayson despite missing out on Michael Higdon at Motherwell before the loan market closed will be back in for him in the summer. Goalkeeper Darren Randolph is another Motherwell player he enquired about too and may be also looking to sign as well at the end of the current campaign. As potential leavers will include Alex Smithies to Ipswich Town. Danny Cadamarteri to Bradford City and Antony Kay back to Tranmere again.
Grayson is said to be looking to sign Adam Clayton from Leeds but may not have too much success with that. We'll wait and see if all on any of this becomes reality!(1)(16)Adam Clayton has been Leeds United's best palyer, and we have a real chance of promotion so why would we let him go to a league one club? Maybe you can have our other best palyer Paytner and Bruce?Leeds sell their best players, Bates will wants any money he can get to spend in Monaco.Leeds are going to struggle to keep hold of him especially if we don't promoted next season due to premier league interest. why we he go down to league 1?Why would clayton want to move down a league when premier league teams are interested in him?Cooo if only, we'll definitely take Alex Smithies at Ipswich, good potential class KeeperLeeds real chance of promotion are you serious?


26 Mar 2012 11:58:46
Notts County are trying to strike a deal with Bristol City about taking on loan defender Damion Stewart on a permanent basis. The defender has stated that he is happy in Nottingham and that he wants to carry on playing for Notts County. Dele Adebola also wants to sign permanently because of his love for the city and the oppourtunity for first team football.(11)(7)


26 Mar 2012 11:55:28
Middlesbrough intrested in a summer deal for brighton striker Ashley Barnes he has became fustrated at the lack of 1st team opertunities and could seal a 3m move to the riverside(5)(11)What a load of cap ! Stop making up such ridiculous, pathetic rumors. He has played every match for Brighton ! Start reading football reports before putting such childish rumours on here.It is annoying when people try to be clever. ruins the fun out of this site when you get the odd 'so called 'football fan' makin up such tripe.We aint got 3 neva mind 3millionWould he be good enough if we where to get to the prem ?


26 Mar 2012 11:02:11
who is going to be the next Bournemouth manager, anyone got an ideas? id like someone with experience, alan curbishley lee clark someone who has been there with a bit of knowledge(2)(13)Curbishley, no chance.Curbs and Clark wont go to League one. Clarke would possibly return at a push to a League one side but if he did it'll be someone like a relagated Championship team.Phil brownCurbishley wont drop to L1 you have to be dreaming and for a start would anyone want to work with Mitchell your dodgy chairman and a russian no ones knows anything about who is probably as dodgy as Mitchell the expert on liquidating his companies.I've heard that Sean O'Driscoll is favourite.....and is the bookies favouriteCurbishly is becoming a George Graham....linked to every job but never taking one. Soon he'll be so out of touch that clubs won't bother asking.


26 Mar 2012 09:40:32
Paul Tisdale to Bournemouth(8)(12)


26 Mar 2012 09:18:07
Reading, again, linked with Jordan Rhodes (Huddersfield). Can't see it myself. Already linked with Craig Mackail-Smith (Brighton) and Kevin Doyle (Wolves). How many strikers do we need? Will be a ridiculous amount of speculation now the takeover's done. Heard any other links Ed?(7)(18)"now the takeover's done".

Not been completed yet.Cant see any of these happening other than possibly Jordan Rhodes if we get promoted, i agree he should go to a prem club and im not sure if the stable prem clubs will want to take a risk on him, and with our 'money' we should now be able to afford him, cms and doyle are non starters imo, the players i obviously want us to sign are the sig and long which are again non starters imoMackail-Smith wont go their. Although Reading look to be Premiership bound its probably still a sideward step. Brighton will push for the Premiership next season if they dont make it this season."Although Reading look to be Premiership bound its probably still a sidewards step."

If we go up it cannot be a sidewards step unless brighton join us. To be honest I like cms but he needs to many chances to score before he does.You aint got the money to sign doyleCMS ain't good enough for the Prem and Brighton won't go up this season or next.IMO Jordan Rhodes is not good enough for the prem yet. He could do with staying put for one more season then moving up to Championship level, that may not mean a move bt cant see Huddersfield doing it this year.Sidewards step get a grip mate we are the best team in the leauge


26 Mar 2012 08:00:45
Daniel Alves could be tempted to move to PSG at the end of season, Barca would then look for a younger replacement with Man Uniteds Da Silva twins and Mathew Debuchy possibilities.(7)(39)


26 Mar 2012 07:24:33
Reading,Southampton, West Ham, Lesicter, Wigan, Bolton, Newcastle(if they lose Ba) are among some club who are Gary Hopper as he is out of contract in the summer.(9)(24)Hooper is not out of contract in the summer he has another year or 2 left on his current deal and is in talks about extending itHooper signed a 4 year deal when he joined celtic 2 years ago,stop talking keechHe's been in talks for months, i mean, it must be boring playing in something similar to a Sunday league...Saints already got better strikers
than hooper leave him to
play in the minor league in
scotlandWow saints fans really are arrogantIMO, Hooper is a good goal scorer but whether or not he'll do it in the Prem I don't know as he's coming from Scottish footy.
Now not being funny but in the Scottish league your playing teams such as Inverness & St Johnstone week in week out and isn't exactly challenging.


Jordan Rhodes looks like a good shot


25 Mar 2012 23:24:49
Brighton are to sign Liverpool youngster
Suso in the next transfer window {Ed003's Note - Nope}(5)(30)Load of rubbish !


25 Mar 2012 21:20:24
Paul Jewell being approached to take over
at Wolves,(17)(29)As a town fan I had to laugh at this he's hardly won the Ipswich fans over yet.Have wolves found some one who will get on with fat boy moxley.thats why steve bruce turned them because of fat boy.does any one like him.He will take u to L1, wolves deserve betterI'm still laughing at all the McCarthy out brigade, classic fail!Talk about rubbing salt into the wounds...


25 Mar 2012 19:06:59
Afc Bournemouth sack Lee Bradbury. Source club website.(25)(3)They are going to be looking at the Managers of Cheltenham and Oxford. Both of whom have done good work on small budgets helping small clubs punch above their weight. {Ed001's Note - they have asked Cheltenham for permission to speak to their manager, apparently. I have no idea whether it is to make him an offer, or just to ask if he would be interested or anything in between though.}


25 Mar 2012 19:01:49

25 Mar 2012 18:00:21
anyone got any real saints news? please no crap lol(11)(7)Be patient. I confidently guarantee this site will be deluged with 'news' about Saints in about 4/6 weeks time. About 0.1% will be accurate!Yeah, you're getting promoted! Good enough news??News just in: Lambert in pie factory raid.Real news....... honestly !.......Overratted and not good enough for the Premiership.Yes.It is almost certain that SFC will be crowned CHAMPIONS of the NPowre championship in the not to far future,How's that ?You couldn't sign heskey's left legI've heard were in for jordan rhodes, but i would take this with a pinch of sault with the way southampton deal with transfersI heard on april the 7th it will be a loss for youReal news....... honestly !.......Overratted and not good enough for the Premiership.
If we are overated then what does that make the rest of the Championship?. Lets face it we been 1st or 2nd all season our bubble has burst about 4 million times according to other fans. I know we aint in the prem yet and its still a long way to go but we are top of the Championship on merrit. Yes it will be tough if we do get to the Prem us realistic fans know that, but boy we will enjoy it for how ever long it last. Also i remember fans on here about this time last year not giving Norwich, Swansea a chance and look how well they have done. You just never know. COYR

Reading have an option to extend Benik Afobe's loan for another season should they get promoted.(10)(7)That would make sense, he looked like a player who'd been out for however many months yesterday, hopefully he can get up to speed quickly


25 Mar 2012 05:35:43
Stourbridge FC have been told that they will be denied promotion to the Conference North, if they finish in a play-off position in the Southern League, due to the standard of their ground.

Stourbridge hope to move to a 10,000 seater new ground by 2016.(9)(12)DISGRACEFUL! It's the quality of the team not the ground.


25 Mar 2012 05:30:28
Rangers and Portsmouth are close to having new owners.(11)(28)Not PompeyPortsmouth close to signing.......... a cheque that wont bounceCan see someone buying rangers
but buying pompey behave
please no one that stupidTwo tax dodgers should be flung out of there leaguesMilan Mandaric wants to help out Pompey, and will re-take them over as Chairman.

Howard Wilkinson to chair Sheffield Wednesday, but Mandaric will leave them solvent and with 20m in the bank.Caroline Dineage (daughter of Fred Dineage) is said to be interested in helping the club.

She is the Conservative MP for Gosport, and plans to buy the club for 1 with a business group from London.They should be both demoted. It's our tax they are avoiding paying. Should be a deterrent for future & current owners who siphon off the money and stick two fingers up to the tax payers.The problem with that (above) is it will be the fans getting hurt again.

Portsmouth will start next season in League 1 with a British owner. I did hear that Eddie Mitchell might be interested, after making a profit at AFC Bournemouth
