Swindon news
Federico Bessone is going to be
released when his contract runs out
next month! Few League 1 and 2
clubs interested and Town want
to reduce the wage bill so suits
both player and club. Caddis
going to Birmingham on a
permanent deal which will free
up funds for new players, expecting
a half decent fee as Brum to sell Butland
to Liverpool to get money for this.
With the money Swindon will sign
Darren Ward from Millwall, looking
at getting Bostock and Hollands for the
season but if not both then one
will be fine with Miller and Navarro
returning. Martin could stay but Town
looking at other players too. Set to be
a busy window with players such as
Benson, Risser, Cox, Rooney and Bessone
either leaving permanently or on loan.
Up to five new players could come in
(Bostock, Hollands, Martin, Ward and
possibly a winger) If Ward signs and none
of the above do replacements will be



29 Dec 2012 22:08:17
PAOLO DI CANIO will be named as the next Preston North End manager

Not a chance



29 Dec 2012 22:05:37
Burnley are in negotiations with top Russian business men about an investment into the football club. It is believed that a £40m initial cash injection will be put into the club. (Very Reliable source close to the club)

Burnley won't be bought by an oversees owner... But I would take an investment. Hope this is true



29 Dec 2012 21:31:56
Millwall will make a joint big for reading's hal robson kanu and simon church in january- what i heard today at the mad stad



29 Dec 2012 21:21:02
Barnsley have shortlisted three potential new managers to take over from Keith Hill.
Crawley Town boss Richie Barker is the favourite for the post. The 37 year old has done brilliant in League 1 with both Town and Bury and Barnsley feel he deserves the chance at Championship football.
Another team fighting for promotion from League 1 to the Championship is Doncaster Rovers and their manager Dean Saunders is rumoured to be on the shortlist. The former Aston Villa, Derby and Brighton striker may be keen on a move across Yorkshire to have another crack at keeping a team up.
The third name is Sean O'Driscoll. O'Driscoll was just sacked by Nottingham Forest in the week and is keen on a new challenge very soon.

Cannot see it being Barker or saunders
Odriscoll yes

I heard it might be dicanio



29 Dec 2012 21:19:15
Reading have offered 6m for heitinga, the offer was accepted but the player has turned down the move out of hand, has not had any talks with reading.



29 Dec 2012 21:14:38
Harry Redknapp has declared his desire to bring in a number of players to his 'overpaid' QPR squad.
One player interesting Redknapp is Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong. The former FC Metz players has impressed Redknapp this campaign.
Another defender who could sign is Aston Villa full back Alan Hutton. The Scottish international is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest but may seal an undisclosed fee transfer to London.
A deal for Sunderland forward Louis Saha is in the pipeline for a possible loan deal. Saha is finding life hard in the North East and is keen on a move back down to London. A £1.5 million deal will be made permanent if Rangers stay up.
Another possible loan deal is for Tottenham youngster Iago Falque. The 22 year old has only featured once for Spurs and is keen on more first team football.
The QPR boss is also keen on another Tottenham midfielder. Jermaine Jenas is a target but will face competition for a full time deal with Nottingham Forest.
Redknapp is keen on bolstering his midfield physically and is expected to make a £6 million bid for Stoke player Wilson Palacios.
The final player Redknapp is targeting is Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Woodgate. No esquires have yet been made.

Why dont we just re-name QPR the Tottenham 2nd or 3rd team? All of these players Arry either fell out with or just ignored them.

You can forget about Sebastien Bassong for a start, hes far too good for qpr & why would he sign for a team going back to the championship.

And Crouch, and Michael Dawson, pretty much tottenham 2009/10 reunion



29 dec 2012 21:02:40

Preston's Stuart Beavon has put in a transfer request.

Doubt this is true but if it is i would put money on him going to Swindon



29 Dec 2012 20:52:42
New Nottingham Forest manager Alex McLeish has been told he will be backed in January.
One player he is keen on signing in a permanent deal is current loanee Jermaine Jenas. Jenas is on loan until January and could sign for an undisclosed fee for a club he loves.
McLeish is also keen on adding a goalkeeper, adding more speculation that Lee Camp could leave. Cardiff stopper Elliot Parish could sign despite not making a first team appearance.
Another midfielder is Watford player Jonathan Hogg. He is subject of an undisclosed offer from the Midlands and a deal could be struck in the next week.
QPR defender Luke Young has been told he can leave on loan by new manager Harry Redknapp and is believed to be a target for Forest. A deal for the 33 year old could be made permanent in the summer if they win promotion.
McLeish is thought to be only wanting to bring these players in as he feels he has a good enough squad.

He is after a left back and a winger at a minimum. None of the names mentioned play in these positions

Hogg has been an integral part of Watford this season, and has no reason at all to leave.



29 Dec 2012 20:48:58
Posh will sign McLean from hull on loan deal



29 Dec 2012 20:16:05
Watford lining up a bid in the region of £2 million for Chelsea startlet Nathaniel Chalobah. The youngster has impressed on loan, picking up 2 goals.

Even if we did offer there would be no way chelsea would sell him with the way he plays at that age

As much as I'd love that, Chelsea would be wanting at least 10 million for him, he's just turned 18 and is controlling games in the Championship.



29 Dec 2012 20:02:59
Bristol Rovers manager John Ward has completed his first two signings ... Shane Higgs will come straight in as Goal keeper and his first midfield target has also agreed to come on board. Very short trip apparently across Bristol ..... !

Sunday and Monday he hopes to have one if not two strikers confirmed.... Jabo Ibhere is thought to be close to terms whilst Kayode Odejay is in early discussion.

Rovers have also started talks with Fleetwood over Stephen Gillespie a firm favourite of JW.

Cian Bolger is hopefully to be confirmed as seconded to end of season when Rovers could take up an option to a permanent .

JW is to talk to Tony Pulis over Matt Lund as he is yet to see him in action.



29 Dec 2012 19:46:10
Derby County want Chris Humphrey, but face comp from Rangers & Burnley.
Scouts up watching Jamie Murphy have been impressed with the Jamaican International Winger!



29 Dec 2012 20:38:45
Reading to sign:
Andrey Arshavin- Arsenal, £4m
Thomas Eisfeld- Arsenal, season-long loan
Tom Huddlestone- Spurs, season-long loan
Daniel Caricco- Sporting Lisbon, £5m
In January.

Also could sign (if some deals fall through)
Joe Cole- Liverpool, £2m
Stopilla Sunzu- TP Mazembe, £500k
Roman Pavlyuchenko- Moscow, £4m
Paul Robinson- Blackburn, Free

Reading will also sell:
Simon Church- Huddersfield, £1.5m
Dominic Samuel- Brighton, season-long loan
Kaspars Gorkss- Cardiff, season-long loan

How can some of these be season long loans?

Hudersfield wont sign Church and definately not for 1.5 million, he hadn't been on form at all with Huddersfield and he is not worth 1.5 so i cant see this being true at all

More chance of Church going to Man United !!



29 Dec 2012 20:18:54
Westley has been sacked by pne from a very reliable source; Billy Davies to return with promise of funds to gain promotion.

Thought you couldn't have two players on loan at your club from the same club? (Ben Amos) {Ed003's Note - that's just the Prem I believe}

Macheda has already stated his desire to either stay in the PL or head back to Italy.

29 Dec 2012 16:06:20
Harry Redknapp is rumoured in securing the services of:
Marko Marin from Chelsea on loan as he is lacking game time at the bridge and Harry sees him as a man to create chances for our strugling strikers.
Loic Remy from Marseille as we are short of strikers with Cisse and Mackie as our only recognised fit strikers. Johnson and Zamora out with long term injuries. I dont know how much marseille would want and what his wage demands would be so could be a stumbling block if this avenue was explored.
Mohamed Diame from West Ham apparently we have activated the 3.5mil release clause in his contract as Harry wants a powerful midfielder to add some steel to the midfield but wether he would want to join is another mater entirely
Joleon Lescott has been linked with the hoops good defender but another ageing player on reportedly 90k a week with Man City wanting a reported 8mil fee is not ideal when we are facing a real possibility of the drop and again whether he would want to join a side in this position is another mater.
Harry Redknapp has also played down moves for Frank Lampard, Joe Cole and Demba Ba saying it is going to be difficult to get good players in January he was quoted as saying
"Who is going to let you have players at this stage of the season? Teams are either fighting to get to the top, to get into Europe, or to stay out of the bottom group. Why would you let someone go if you're the manager of a team in the top four, five or six? Why are you going to weaken your squad? Unless, that is, there's a reason you want to get them out, so there's obviously a problem if you want them out of your club in January."
but these are rumours nothing concrete and we all know Harry is a wheeler dealer lets just see what happens



29 Dec 2012 15:53:24
Sure is sack in the morning for hillcroft bring in o bring o Driscoll. And so in happy times then for d for the reds before its too late

Notts County`s Lee Hughes could sign for Gillingham in January.Allen worked with Hughes previously at Notts County.The deal would be a permanent deal.

Yes. And its been mentioned here that Southend's Gavin Tomlin MIGHT be his replacement.

Should think he will go to port vale.was prevented from signing for them at end of loan cut off date, for same reasons wright didn't go to gills.

I'm sorry but do we need someone like lee hughes wot with his age and then his baggage sorry better off with other players mentioned like kee akinfenwa hoskins we need someone to do us a job for the next couple of seasons in div 1

Could happen and is reliable as port vale nearly got him and would be good to knock him plus he knows our players and is a good footballer just not as a person particularly

Sean o driscoll

I hope this is true. Awful manager.

29 Dec 2012 17:25:41
I really hope this is true as Westley must go down as one of the worst managers we have had. My concern thought is who (after watching today) will take this poor group of players on!



29 Dec 2012 14:46:07
Wenger definitely after Sunderland keeper Mingolet

Best keeper in the league ATM. Worth at least 15m if not more

So you know who SUNDERLAND are signing then? MON blocked wickham goin out on loan thru lack of strikers so he will NOT allow him to go til he's covered for, so, who are we getting??

Blimey, calm down.. MON has already said he wants him to go out on loan for experience. We need Wickham to get more experience, he's not ready yet.

Norwegian winger Dawda Leigh is likely to move to the Championship in January. Bolton, Crystal Palace and a few others all keeping tabs on the 'assist king' of Norwegian football



29 Dec 2012 11:52:57
Torsten Oehrl, a 6ft 4 striker of Augsbury in Germany will be coming to the UK in January. A number of Championship clubs have been watching him, including Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol City

Probably coming for New Year holiday. Cant see City attracting anything other than desperado's unless the manager changes



29 Dec 2012 10:26:37
Reading and Southampton both interested in former Wigan right back Steve Gohouri

Can't see Southampton being interested. Right back is kind of a strong position for the saints with Clyne and Richardson for cover.

Too old for Saints!

No they're not. The player said he wanted to play in the prem again. Sky then linked him with Reading and Saints. There's no substance to it.

RB isn't a strong position for Saints?! We just have Clyne and when he is injured we have to put Yoshida in at RB even though he is CB! You know nothing about Saints if you think we have good cover at RB - it's one of our weaker areas and we have no prem quality cover.

Don't think Gohuri is good enough though, and too old for Saints.

The last thing the Saints need is another right back. Clyne, Richardson and Butterfield already at the club. Would need to sell first if strengthening at this position. Although it was odd seeing Yoshida at Right back against stoke, so maybe NA is thinking about quality not quantity at right back



29 Dec 2012 12:24:44
Luton town have signed jonathan smith from york city with a fee of £50, 000 !



29 Dec 2012 12:18:39
Omar Beckles of Borhamwood on his way to Luton Town? {Ed001's Note - is he one of the graduates from the Glenn Hoddle Academy?}

Started at Millwall but was then released, has recently been at the Hoddle Academy. {Ed001's Note - cheers, thought he was. I make my parents go along to talk to the coaches when the academy plays against their local team in Spain. May as well make use of them now they have retired there! I remember his name mentioned as being one they felt would defo make it, the name is unusual enough to stick in your mind.}



29 Dec 2012 12:16:01
Bradford have been offered 2 million for nahki wells, but I don't know if that is straight cash or a stupid deal

Not worth 2m for 2nd div player, has to be down payment with add ons. I would think 500k down is nearer the mark.

As people could see if they went today there was no threat up frount so i dnt think nakhi will go anywhere but 2 million sounds a lot! we need to give hannah a chance we dont need to sell anyone to buy anyone



29 Dec 2012 12:09:08
Bristol Rovers will sign Shane Higgs, John-Joe O'Toole, and Kayode Odejayi on loan.



29 Dec 2012 11:59:25
Mk Dons have signed Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Ryan Harley on loan for the rest of the season will be confirmed next week.

Top signing if true! Plays in that little 'Luke Chadwick role'!

Need a midfielder so could be a good shout!

Don't really need any central midfielders but we desperately need a goalscorer and a centreback....

Agreed defo CB thats for sure. Although Makenzie returning very soon

It is true he was spotted at mkdons vs coventry city on saturday. Great opening signing by karl robinson



29 Dec 2012 10:03:01
Poyets 'proper' number 9 is thought to be DJ Cambell. Looks like he'll be available in the next window.

Expect Ipswich, Hull and Bristol to compete with Brighton though

Hes going to ipswich if redknapp doesn't Want him. mm will pay £2mil for him

Norwich after him i think. better club and prem not struggerling championship side. we will offer 3 million for him,

2mil for a 31 year old dont think so



29 Dec 2012 05:54:23
Ed003 any news on Ince ?
heard liverpool are close to finalizing a deal worth 5 mil + jack robinson and pacheco on loan. {Ed003's Note - thats the last speculation I heard aswell}



29 Dec 2012 09:52:06
Liverpool are keeping a eye on brightons Vicente fitness to swoop for the biggest shock in January. Reported to be offering in the region of 3 million for the Spanish playmaker.

Doubt it, he is always injured. Though, you never know.

You can have him for £3m, he has played 51 mins this season due to injuries!!

Haha! £3m? Admittedly Vicente is a class act when fit but no way will Liverpool offer £3m for a player prone to injury and out of contract in the summer



29 Dec 2012 11:17:10
Chris Hughton has submitted a bid for Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani.



29 Dec 2012 11:16:57
Bristol Rovers are looking to bring in up to SEVEN new recruits in January.

A mixture of Championship loans, possibly even Premiership and one or two permanent signings from Non League.

A number of Rovers old Boys now in management have offered support to the club that has been totally ripped to shreds by Mark McGhees incompetence and laziness.

Tony Pulis, John Rudge and Ian Holloway have been monitoring goings on ...... Rovers are keen to also use their blossoming relationship with Leicester City and are hoping that Jeffery Schlupp wants to play some competitive football this season and join the fight for survival.

Rovers are looking for a goal keeper , two strikers, three midfielders and some versatility .

Although I wouldn't completely rule it out. I don't think Geoff Schlupp will be coming out on loan. NP has been converting him to a LB/LWB and he has been putting in some good performances in that position. It's true he isn't being picked to start at the moment but he is the only really left sided back up for Konchesky at the moment. With the signing of Wood we do have forwards who are going to need game time and I'd say Vardy is more likely to get a short term loan. Couldn't guess who to though, (and this is a guess, not inside knowledge).

We live in hope. I'm a great believer in a manager with good experience and coaching ability in the lower leagues cus you simply dont have the dosh to spend on transfers. I think someone thought McGhee had this quality but sadly he let himself down on all fronts. Club should seek promising coaching staff and rejuvinate with Ward other than just surviving. Is next season gonna deliver the same scrap



29 Dec 2012 11:09:49
Huddersfield and Sheffield United both keen on Bristol City top earner John Stead as the club stive to reduce their huge wage bill

Huddersfield don't want Stead. Why would we buy back a striker who they got rid of in his prime, when they could go for someone like Bradford's Wells etc.

Bottom club unattractive to watch and fans desert with lower attendance and income for the club. Get rid of players and your dooooomed. Got to hang out til end of season and try and use managers coaching and experience to promote confidence and dig out results. If McInnes cant do this then the seasons over unless a change takes place.



29 Dec 2012 11:04:50
Ryan Harley from Brighton to MK Dons on loan, done deal.



29 Dec 2012 10:51:39
Alex baptiste to Leicester for 1 mill with an un named Leicester striker also coming in the other direction. Rumoured to bee former Blackpool target Jamie vardy especially with Chris wood also being signed by leicester

Jamie vardy aswell no chance mate

Futacs played for appleton at portsmouth rates highly.

29 Dec 2012 13:26:10
futacs striker going appleton rates him from pompy days.

29 Dec 2012 13:37:09
Believable til you mentioned Vardy...LOL were not goin to lose out on the 1 mil we paid for Vardy and besides hes playing most games, clearly a player Pearson wants at the club. Possibly a loan though maybe 1 month

norwich poss outs pilks w ham 3.2 mill jackson burnley 800k morison villa 3, 2 mill surman stoke 3month loan r martin reading 2mill d fox brighton 650k ..........

Pilkinton going for 3.2m ? are you having a laugh ? he is worth at least 10m

Doubt Norwich would sell a player who has started almost every game to a rival unless there was someone of an equal or higher quality lined up.

Not 10 million!, but still more than 3.2m

I can't understand his.

Why would stoke (doing better than norwich) loan one of there players for 3 months? =/

rumour has it Ruddy still going to Arsenal in jan even thou he is injuried still, with Butland going to Norwich to work under Hughton again and to work under Dave Watson who is the England and city goalkeeper coach !!

Ruddy isn't good enough for Arsenal and Butland didn't exactly work under Hughton. He spent most of last season on loan at Cheltenham Town. I really doubt this rumour.


Thats the same butland going to liverpool for £8 mil is it

If Ruddy was to go (which I doubt) I'd be happy with Butland as a replacement!

Didnt realise that the Butland transfer was official..... oh wait its not

Ruddy not good enough! He is in the top 3keepers in the league and is just what the gunners need. Still never replaced seaman

Ruddy would be seriously challenging Hart for the England jersey if he were not injured and with Hart's inconsistency this season. Arsenal are always linked with good keepers, but always get average ones. They won't get Ruddy

Afc Bournemouth to sign free agent Owen Hargreaves in January transfer window.....

Why wait til January if he is a free agent?

Josh carmichael to go on loan to plymouth in january to get game time

I know we have david games but another former england player owen hargrieves would be interesting, McDonald is out for ten weeks so another quality playmaker would be good for the young team.

He's finished! Bournemouth will not be signing leg irons

Qpr are willing to let d.j Campbell leave in January , he will still be out of the 25 man squad . Ipswich town are favourites to sign him but many other clubs are interested .



29 Dec 2012 07:00:10
Norwich will sign Anthony Wordsworth in January.



29 Dec 2012 02:17:09
Chesterfield will be promoted and you will get Jordon Bowery(Villa) and Atkinstion(Hudder) on loan in january.

29 Dec 2012 12:24:45
didnt know you could get promoted in January. learn something everyday on here.

I didn't say they would get prom in jan 'smartarse'

CFC have to ship out before they can sign anyone and thats a fact.
We have some expensive misfits

Sources tell me that Mark Hughes is interested in the Blackburn job but wants to speak to the owners and get rid of Shebby first. Also, he was spotted at Brockhall (BRFC training ground) on friday!


Most over rated manager of all time, whoever decided he was a good manager spends a fortune and does nothing anywhere he's been
