WBA have bid for Cardiff's Peter Whittingham and it is to be rejected. Cardiff have enough money they dont need to sell him.(15)(7)Cardiff are not financially stable. Don't be fooled. The club has been bankrolled this past two seasons to reach the Premier League, and if they fail this season they will be in big trouble unless a wealthy investor is prepared to come in.

The club wont want to sell anyone, but if the offer is too good to turn down they will have to take it. Better that than have no club at all next season.Two players in cardiff city fc in 24 hoursPlease google Vincent TanCardiff owner = 16th richest in football

hey ED, any watford rumours please mate? {Ed001's Note - I have not been able to find out anything new sorry. I have tried, but the only solid thing was about Mariappa leaving, not sure if it is news or not because I don't know if a 5m bid was the one that went in or if it is the one that is about to go in.}(1)(2)

Albion are poised to seal the signing of centre forward Sam Vokes from Wolves.

The Welsh international watched tonight's FA Cup win against Newcastle at The Amex from the directors' box.

An announcement is expected from the club on Monday confirming the capture of the 22-year-old Welsh international.

The Argus first broke news of Albion's interest in Vokes at the beginning of January.

The former Bournemouth marksman recently completed his fifth loan spell away from Molineux at Championship rivals Burnley.

Vokes fits the bill as the robust partner for Craig Mackail-Smith boss Gus Poyet has been looking for.

He could go straight into the side for Tuesday's visit to arch rivals Crystal Palace.(8)(4)Fair play to him, he's a cracking player hasn't quite made it Wolves yet but a good prospect. Hope he plays well for you!I thought he was on season loan at BurnleyI agree with other wolves fan lots of potential but not as good as the other strikers yet. Hopefully with a run of games will develop into a good player.
Good luck

28 Jan 2012 21:51:31
Huddersfield Town have currentley got Cardiff City's John Parkin on loan which could be a Permanent move at the end of the window. However, Watford could make a bid too.(4)(6)BIG jon parkin's loan to HUDDS has ended, he's now back with cardiff. AG

28 Jan 2012 21:26:41
Reading have ended talks with Huddersfield about bringing Jordan Rhodes to Reading this transfer window, and will continue negotiations with a view to a summer move.

Reading continue to be interested in Billy Sharp, and have now targeted Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.(17)(15)Both heavily linked on and GetReading reporter Jonny Fordham confirms interest in both.Since the possible takeover we have been linked with practically every striker that has ever lived. I would take 99.9% of these rumours with a very large pich of salt.As per the Doyle rumour and Vokes rumour, I'm hoping the Eblanks-Fake rumour is also true, he's lazy, fat, worthless and has lost his spark so anyone is welcome to him.

Craig Brown looking to bring James Mcfadden to Aberdeen on loan for remainder of season. Darren Mackie heading to Falkirk as a makeweight in deal for el alagui. Gavin Rae will sign on monday on an 18 month contract. Josh Magennis and Micheal Paton will be released to free up wages to push through deals before the end of transfer window. Southampton make a £100000 offer for Arnason to sign now rather than wait until the summer.(9)(20)


28 Jan 2012 20:39:47
Reading and Southampton are the only two clubs still interested in Sharp - Not ideal for him considering both are southern teams, but I'm 90% sure he will sign for one of them within the next 3 days.(12)(14)I doubt he will sign 4 any1 with his ridiculous wage demandsDon't believe everything you read/hear. Some papers claimed he wanted 40k a week at Leicester. That is not true. He didn't feel Leicester was the club for him. Let's wait and see.He rejected Leicester's offer because there wasn't enough money in it for him, that much is fact. Anyone who thinks Leicester didn't chuck a pile of cash at him is fooling themselves. Leicester's offer is still on the table in fact and who knows, he might even accept it if he can't catch a better deal. The only clubs in the Championship capable of competing with the Foxes financially are Southampton and West Ham, anything else is rubbish.West Ham and Southampton obviously can compete with Leicester if it came down to wages. However with the new investment as Reading it wouldn't surprise me if they were able to match any other offers put on the table.The trouble with Sharp is he dont know whether his arse is punched or bored, probably will stay with Donny


28 Jan 2012 20:23:27
Joan Simun Edmundssonis expecting to join Walsall before Tuesday on loan from Newcastle

Hard luck...He signed for Gateshead 2 weeks ago(1)(4)


28 Jan 2012 20:20:08
Reading FC are NOT signing either Billy Sharp or Jordan Rhodes. They are currently looking at Jacob Mellis from Chelsea and Mathew Sadler of Walsall.(13)(9)Has brian mcdermott told you this personally, you seem very certain.


28 Jan 2012 20:06:13
Whittingham isn't moving he signed a new contract at the start of the season and said his goal was to get Cardiff into the Premier League.

Also, Cardiff to sign Llanelli striker Rhys Griffiths on free transfer with Malky Mackay also having another look at Safee Sali.(5)(6)Well Whittingham will never leave then Cardiff have no chance of being a premier league team, they do the same every season and go on Self destruct, the Carling cup will kill them off now


28 Jan 2012 20:05:26
Sorry if there's any Baggies out there who think that West Brom will be making any transfers this window, but it will NOT happen.
Peace spends very little during the summer, and NOTHING in January. Discount Scott Allan, he's simply one for the future, as was Dorrans, so won't be seen this season.
Even announcing a £9m profit won't buck this trend, the well-worn excuses have already been drafted and put in place for Ashworth and Woy to announce on the 1st of Feb.
Still hoping to be proven wrong though...(15)(3)No transfers till summer when you start to use the Parachute money to try and do the yo yo again LOLNo change there then !


28 Jan 2012 19:46:03
Derby not signing anybody fact !!(21)(2)

Bristol Rovers are about to sign 1 Kerouche on a free transfer from Swindon, Swindons top scorer and best forward has fallen out with Dickanio and is allowed to go on a free to us HA HA HA !!(7)(6)Your more than welcome to him, enjoy the 4/5 games he will try in!Is this actually true? McGhee seemed to suggest he was only going to make loan signings this window? Wouldn't mind it being true though.He is not the top scorer and have the lazy git ha ha haHaha!! look at this...A Gas Head all excited that he's getting one of our cast off because he never made the grade because of a lazy attitude an an unwillingness to put in the effort...kind of sums up your season mate!! You can have him with'll soon see he will just want his wages for free!!


28 Jan 2012 19:24:43
Hibs to sign Gary Dicker from Brighton to shore up the midfield.(1)(13)Gary Dicker has got a broken leg


28 Jan 2012 19:24:00
WHU are extremely, and I mean extremely, close to a short term loan deal for Mr. Carlos Tevez. The newspapers seem to have got to this first. This has all occurred after Tevez realised earlier on in the week his permanent move away was not going to be on the cards and City didn't want to loan the player abroad.(13)(28)Mr Tevez welcome home!Wont happen. The whole reason Tevez didn't go to either Milan side is because they wanted a loan with view to permanent signing in the summer. No likey, no loanee.


28 Jan 2012 18:51:18
way(spelling) parlour is to be given a coaching role at arsenal in the next few weeks(4)(9)Way? way!More likely to be a midfield role behind fellow pensioner Henry ...

28 Jan 2012 18:17:20
Ryan Stevenston signs for the tractor boyds Ipswitch City on Monday from Hearts,And they sign young Wallace from Falkirk to a centre back.STV Sport.Ally(3)(4)Wowee!Ipswich havent signed Wallace only had their £300'000 bid accepted, Wallace has been to Brighton to look round, he due at Huddersfield today to look around probably Ipswich or Charlton Monday or Tuesday, Swansea, Newcastle, and the Scum have show a fleeting interest, But if i was Wallace I would take a serius look at Ipswich, as they have brilliant traing facilities, and are a good club to be at, hope he talks to Warky,Brazil, and Burley for their time with the Tractor Boys


28 Jan 2012 18:15:19
Blackpool loan Elliot Grandin to french side Nice for rest of season with permanent deal possible at end of the season.(9)(3)


28 Jan 2012 18:10:35
Wolves to add strike power within the next few days
theyre looking at leon best of newcastle (loan), peter lovenkrands of newcastle (permanent) kenwyne jones of stoke (permanent) and jordan rhodes of huddersfield (permanent) other possible deals could involve doyle out with a host of clubs interested and a deal for man citys young defender stefan savic on loan.

Ben(6)(16)Come this post is so unrealistic for 4 reasons leon best wont drop to a relagation threatend team 2 loverkrands would just be like always 3 jones is staying amid speculation and 4 jordan rhodes is not going to a club he could possibly face next season if wolves are relagated and huddlesfield are promotedPeter lovenkrands is likely because he wants first team football but the others might be a bit hard for wolves given their current position in the league. I think they could get best on loan because he's only played a few games for toon this season and would work well with fletcher and would add much more strike force


28 Jan 2012 18:09:41
28 Jan 2012 08:03:10
Reading fc ins and outs

Ryan Bertrand loan chelsea
Jordan Rhodes 5M +church Huddersfield
Billy Sharp 1.75M Doncaster
CHurch with the Rhodes deal
Manset Swinden loan(6)(29)Why would donny sell sharp for 1.75Because it is his clause is £1.75m If someone offered that amount Doncaster can not turn it down and must allow the club that offered £1.75m to talk with Billy Sharp !Does nobody listen, it has been stated many times that despite the new investment that's coming we will not be throwing money around like its going out of fashion.


28 Jan 2012 18:04:44
Sharp and Rhodes?
unlikely(9)(11)I meant Sharp or Rhodes


28 Jan 2012 18:02:05
Preston North End could sell midfielder Adam Barton to Watford.(9)(3)Please let this be true i cant drive but i swear i will try my very best to get him there very quickly he's awful.


28 Jan 2012 17:56:48
Pboro turned down 3.5 million bid last week which was turned down! Speculation from London road Bennett off to arsenal in summer!(2)(3)How do you turn down a turned down £3.5M? P'Boro, likeable as they are, do not have anyone worth £2m, let alone £3.5m.You clearly never seen the lad play!! TALENTED = understatementIf Arsenal can pay Southampton 10 million for an average player like Chamberlin then Bennet must be worth 15 million!


28 Jan 2012 17:56:38
Fandrich to Boro on deadline day(5)(1)


28 Jan 2012 17:52:23
Why do people keep saying Billy Sharps release clause is 1.8m just because a national tabloid said it? Take it from someone i the know his release clause is currently 3m that is what Leicester had to offer to speak to him(4)(11)It is £1.8 mill factThe club said it was 1.8 millIts 3 million. From the chairmans mouthWhy would donny buy a player for 3.2 mil and give him a release clause of 1.75 .wake upIt wouldn't be the club that stipulate the release clause it would be the player/players agent....and his release clause is actually £1.85million...however I don't believe sharp to be leaving Doncaster in this window.The release clause is 1.8 mill to a prem club


28 Jan 2012 17:49:22
Reeding fc new signing Jason Roberts did great but they have said they will sign Billy Sharp whom was at there game today as well as a defender so this mean Church and Manset out(6)(10)Where did u here this? hope it is trueWhere did u hear this? hope its true.Sharp wasn't at the game today. Reading have bid for him, talks are ongoing, but nothing concrete for now. Interest in Rhodes is cooling due to Huddersfield wanting £5m up front. Reading are offering £2.5m plus Manset, and then a further £1.5m dependant on promotion and Premiership survival.I would drather have church than sharp or rhodes any day of the week. Sell him wod be a mistakeAbsolute garbage, Billy Sharp was in Sheffield todayDid u see sharp at the game todayI saw Sharp out and about yesterday and spoke to him. He said the Leicester offer is still on the table and is the only offer on the table at the moment. Leicester won't pay what he wants and agent fees are also a stumbling block. Staying at Doncaster until summer he says."I would rather have church than sharp or rhodes any day of the week. Sell him would be a mistake."

You have obviously not seen church play, he cannot even control the ball. In my opinion his time is up.


28 Jan 2012 17:46:00
Barnsley to take Jacobs from Northampton before deadline day(13)(4)


28 Jan 2012 17:40:40

28 Jan 2012 17:32:27
All of this stuff about Whittingham? he Is not leaving, Cardiff is his club and he is enojying it.


Told you that himself did he?


Yeah he did actually, i met him in town and he said to me that he will STAY at CARDIFF.


Until a big offer comes in then he will leave for double his wages


He was lying, he told me he wanted to leave asap because he thought it was time he played for a big club. Unlucky


Wrong! You liar. I met him and we went to get a cup of coffee and he said that he can 100% guarantee he will stay at Cardiff(7)(10)What brand coffee was it?Would you stay at your job if another job offered you double?All sounds very romanticNo matter what or who the player is, they have their price, if someone offered him enough he will be off, its the fact of life, If you were offered more money and better conditions with prospects off a good family future you'd be off to, and anyone is a liar if they say otherwiseWhittingham girlfriend won't let him leave. She loves Barry. FactWow I love a good laugh on a Sunday afternoon
Wake up and smell the coffee


28 Jan 2012 17:32:08
Looks Like Tyrone Barnett if he moves will be to someone like Ipswich, as he has turned down Blackpool, want to stay down south, so watch out a good offer has been put in for him of around the £500'000 plus, if it happens itll be done by Monday 30th(5)(3)He agreed terms with Blackpool,the reason it didnt go through was the agent's fee,nothing at all to do with geography.

Mr.Roller CoasterWell in Barnett's report on the Crawley Site, it stated he would prefer to stay down south, your probably right about his bloody agent though, why the hell cant players discuss their own movements and fee's, after all it isnt the fact they havent got the time, all it takes is a phone call back to the proposed club thats interested, have a meeting agree a fee and wages, Simples, why the hell do you need a bloody agent? {Ed001's Note - it is not like the agent is capable of drawing up a contract either, they still have to get a solicitor in for that!}


28 Jan 2012 17:26:35
According to italian newspapers Liverpool are to make a 40million euro bid plus Dirk Kuyt for Edinson Cavani.(15)(23)PLEASE BE TRUE i would love to see this brilliant player playing for my loved liverpoolWhen? 2013 ?Hopefully January but proberly SUMMER PLEASEWhen will you Liverpool fans get it? He's not going to go to a team that's not in the champions league and who are currently behind Newcastle in 7th! He's one of the most dangerous strikers in the world and playing in the champions league! It's never going to happen unless you get into the cl, which to be brutally honest is about as likely as Francis Jeffers playing at Euro 2012!Champs Lge teams only


28 Jan 2012 17:21:03

impact this season.....i reckon he will

brentford !!

also ipswich are keeping a very close
eye on 25 year old magnus okonghae.
as they are very close to relegation,
they will try to snatch him from there
essex rivals. i reckon they will bid
about 250,000-280,000 to pull him
from the u's.(6)(5)


28 Jan 2012 16:37:29
It is true that approaches have been made for several players,however the refusal to offer wages comparable with other premier league sides make signings impossible. This total lack of ambition runs through the club and will never change with moxey and mccarthy in place, Mr morgan is up to you!(14)(5)Would u drather they brought afew players in spend 20 million start trip down the road to ending up bank rupt. Your ground is beinng made bigger so u can buy better players. Just to spend nx 10years in the prem , cup run is best u can hope for or would u drather spend end up like portsmouth ipswich.Take a look the groung work has stopped and not going to continue at the end of the season either why? we are skint and going down , that was money well spent wasn't it, we now have the same unfinished stadium looks like MK

28 Jan 2012 16:16:16
Roy O'Donovan may well follow James McPake to Hibernian on loan for the rest of the season. This will free up wages for Andy Thorn to bring in another striker and an attacking midfielder - both on loan from Premier League clubs.(2)(2)


28 Jan 2012 16:12:33

Tevez coming home to Upton Park on short term loan. COYI(12)(34)Man City don't want to loan him out. They want him rid completely.
So this is a complete non-starterAfter the comments I saw from Karen Brady about Mr Tevez, only if hell freezes over.....Joorbachian has said he's staying at City until the summer. a loan to WHU till the summer would suit everyone. City would not have to play him, WHU would go up and Carlos would keep match fit. Not as daft as it would appear. COYI.Rubbish they simply cannot afford him
city will not let him out on loan and if they did they would not be prepared to pay any of his wages so it,s a non starterBetting has gone from 16/1 down to EvensKia said yesterday "no chance this happening"So West ham are going to pay £250K/week wages are they- get real ! Man City do not have to loan him, and right now he is not being paid because he refused to report back to Man City, and lets face it Man City don't need to sell him that bad otherwise they would have accepted the £20M they were offered, they are happy to teach him a lesson....Cant see this happening myself, for the fact that city would have to pay about 90% of his wages, when they can let him waste away his career and not pay him a thing in Argentina.By you saying COYI you would be saying come on you irons ( Scunthorpe ) when you should say come on you hammers COYHCant see this happening because man city only wat permnent basis thats why psg and inter millan pulled out

Dynamo Kiev have made a bid for Rangers midfielder Juan Manuel Ortiz. The Spaniard has interested a number of clubs around Europe after not getting much first team football at Ibrox and could move to Ukraine for around £2.5 million.(2)(25)If not good enough for rangers,why would kiev want him.2.5 mil?give your head a wobble mate be lucky to get 500k for that dud jm1888I think this may be wishful thinking. The guy has proved to be hopeless, £2.50 would be more accurateIf your going to post comments try making it believable!! 2.5 mill my @rseOrtiz is a disgrace to football. As for the first post, even the most loyal kiev fan knows rangers are better than them.

De Gea to leave man utd and there to sign Juilo Cesar from Inter(12)(22)Big mistake signing this guy,someone made a terrible mistakeHe wont leave, ferguson is too stubborn to admit his mistakes, hence why it took him years to sell obertan and othersDe Gea is rubbishSomeone paid £16.3M or something close to this for this kid, he looks a good shot stopper, but he looks way to fragile for premier league, watching him today flap at crosses and I cannot count how may times he dropped the ball today, I recall they had a Italian Keeper they signed for a few mil a few seasons ago looks like Ferguson and Wenger should let someone else pick their goalkeepers.

watford to sign Jason Pearce and Nathan Tyson before window closes(3)(20)No way, Pearce if anything will sign for Ipswich hopefully by Monday, along with Ward & HendersonFitness wise, Tyson is a liability, plus his 8k a week wages will be too much for Watford to affordI will drive tyson down to watford want him we got him for another 2 and a half years i wonder if he will ever play another game for us he always injured he one bad sick noteTh e only way Ipswich will bag Pearce, Hendo and Wardy is if they can bid £5million. PUP.Not bad for a club with no money

Newcastle set to sign samba from blackburm for a fee of 8 million, samba's agent has already held talks with newcastle and samba will undergo a medical on monday before signing a four year deal worth in the region of 55k week(27)(31)Utter rubbish. He is on more that that at Blackburn not going to come to the toon for a pay cut.Not going to happen :( brilliant playerWhat have u been on?Deluded Geordie.Wont sell for less than 10m bigger clubs interestedHe's leaving just don't assume a pay cut would bother him, he wants out and will go before window closes, Keen will stand in front of the cameras and tell you he forced their hand so the owners reluctantly accepted he had to go, while pocketing the money. If Keen can keep you up this year with Venky as owners he should win manager of the year award.That's a lie as he's on 50k a week already and wants a lot more then 5k a week to moveBlackburn don't pay over 40k a week to anyone so 55k at Newcastle would be a pay rise.We wont pay 8million and 55k per week for a player whos 28 this year.. weve already said the policy is 26 and under as we all know we only buy players to sell them for a profit.. buy cheap sell highI'm a big newcastle fan and I wish people would stop posting about people over the transfer age of 26 we would not sign anyone over that age we are trying to build a strong squad for the future also wish ppl and papers wud put to bed the ba rumours he's going nowhereDeluded geordie, stop mixing your meds if you please

Dear Ed
What IS going on with this Smith to MK Dons rumour?! people I've talked to said it's not a done deal but it's possible.
What the hell?! {Ed001's Note - not a lot of interest in him, Newcastle are just looking to get any of his wages off the bill now.}(1)(5)It is unbelievable this idea that they pay most of his wages whilst MK Dons pay something like 2k a week crazy!All Alan wants is to play games and get his game going again, I'm a bit suprised its MK Dons, thought he would go back to Leeds, but MK are a good footballing side, and he can be their midfield general, good move if it happens

Ipswich to sign Ryan Stevenson of hearts for 50k
And set to make an improved 2.5million rising to 3 million with add ons aswell as Grant leadbitter
Pompey said nO action would be done over the weekend but jewell wants this bid to go in before so they can consider it over the week end and accept/decline by Monday so he can turn his attention else wheree

Pompey will reluctantly accept because of the recent winding up order(14)(6)This deal would make sence, as time is running out for Portsmouth to get the winding up order recinded, and £2.5 million for all three we know isnt the true value but at least we are helping in a small way plus Leadbitter thrown in He's Norris's mate, keeps the pompey team alive a bit longerMay be if they offered the right amount they migth get a deal and leadbetter is out of contract in the summerMake it £4 million and Leadbitter and maybe, just maybe you'll get 2 out the 3!(Original Poster)- neither of them are even worth 2 million each
You got Pearce in the summer for £300,000(i accept that he has improved)-so put him at 500,000. Then you have 500,000 rated henderson and I don't know enough about ward to say also the thing is players go on the cheap when you have money problems


28 Jan 2012 10:28:55

blackpool looking to sign roman bednar hopefully,
anyway looking like full house at bloomfield road today, part of ground still closed due to corner and hotel not finished yet! so nearly 14,000 in today.
not bad for little blackpool!
come on wba , and pool make my weekend!
train coming soon so go to go!
getting into pub first for liverpool v man utd ,that should be good!
my bet is pen awarded and scored 4/1
and missed 12/1 £10 on each.
so if ref points to spot ive won!

maximus(2)(5)So your saying spending £20 and the chances are a penalty will be scored if awarded because u bet against urself on a penalty have actully lost 20 pound..because £10 on a 4/1 is £40 but since i spent a tenner betting against urself ur actully only getting 2/1 ..just put 20 quid on a penalty score and win £80 u muppet {Ed001's Note - that is why you will never make a bookmaker, they always lay their bets to make sure they make money either way. You will be the one looking a muppet if the pen is missed!}Dear maxipuss, instead of wasting your money at the bookies and pub, why dont you go to bloomfield rd and support the team you allegedly support? methinks you are a closet man u and norwich supporter. dont CHOKE ON YOUR PINT hahaa

This is from a very reliable source:
Jamie Puncheon - Leeds United
I heard he has been seen walking around Leeds.
Paul Pogba - Burnley Loan deal
Pogba has requested more football, Sir Alex believes his best option would be to see Paul out on loan to a club near by.
Richie Wellens - Derby
Ive heard Richie is'nt enjoying his time at the walkers stadium and feels he needs a change of scenery.(7)(18)Is that jason or jamie getting a wiff of b..l s..tJason puncheon wont be goin to leeds as hes made it up with saints chairman and is back in training with first team and said he is happy to have finally sorted the riftPuncheon to Leeds not happening, especially after Puncheon recently berated Bates on twitter and then Ken had a go back at him.JASON Puncheon is starting for Saints this afternoon so he is ineligible to start for anyone else this season. HTH.Puncheon to leeds - replacement for snodgrass - norwich boundVery reliable source my arseHAHA, THIS ISNT TRUE!

Hey editor!
No confirmation from Newcastle United site, what's going on with Alan Smith?as a Smithy and lufc fanatic I'd be devastated if he went to MK Dons but I need to know, whats going on?? {Ed001's Note - I am told they are in talks, but nothing is signed yet.}(4)(6)Someone surely should hijack this! {Ed001's Note - why would anyone want to? He is not the player you used to fantasise about as a schoolgirl, he is a shadow of that slightly above average player he once was.}According to the newspapers Newcastle are going to pay £57.5K of his 60K weekly wages with the MK dons picking up the 2.5K/week. Kind of sums up how bad Newcastle want rid of him.

Tevez, Smith, Bridge, they are all up there for the annual award of the most unproductive player of the year.

Mercenaries of the game of football, why would you want any of these in your team, because remember its a team game.

Swindon Are close to Signing Lee Cox from Caladonion Thistles (Cant Spell but you know what i mean)

In the Swindon Advertiser Today:

The Robins are understood to have recently had a five-figure bid accepted by Inverness Caledonian Thistle for the midfielder, after an offer of £25,000 was rejected last week(6)(10)Lower league Scottish footballer........ Massive signing for you lot. I Spose after the alleged Tubbs and Heskey bids you had to go for a big name :)To the post above, He's English and he's actually not a bad player and still young. Paulo will turn him into a good player!

Hail HailHis actually playing in the Scottish Premier League - Funny that.....doesnt seem lower league to me........Get ya facts right before you go shooting off matey.........COYR'sssss

Reading fc ins and outs

Ryan Bertrand loan chelsea
Jordan Rhodes 5M +church Huddersfield
Billy Sharp 2M Doncaster
CHurch with the Rhodes deal
Manset Swinden loan(4)(28)Why would reading pay 2m for sharp when he has a 1.75m release clauseReading ARE still in for one more striker but they wont include the highly rated Simon Church in any deal.

Manset is available to leave, as is Brian Howard.

A defender also remains a key target.

Reading have reiterated they will not break their wage structure to get the players they want in.Can see all of those happening, Manset struggles for fitness and the drink driving charge was the last straw. As of Church good energy but has gone stale here, a move would be good it would also get him back into International reckoning with Wales.

There will however be several more outgoings, sales or loans just to start clearing the decks in the summer.

I liked the comments of not breaking the present wage chance if they are serious about the targets they are going for the wage thing will be blown out.Sharp has a 3 million pound release clause. get your facts rightReading would not sign sharp and rhodes at all, and think you should get your facts right, his buy out clause is 1.85m which has been made public for a while


28 Jan 2012 07:49:53
blackburn are also looking to sign Alexander Hleb on loan and Alberto Botia from Sporting Gijon(2)(7)Fail Hleb is looking to be released so the loan thing is bullHave Blackburn actually brought anyone in yet ? , who ever they manage to bring in will not be super stars, who the hell would want to join them right now, players wanting out in droves, the fans hating the management regime and the owners talking BS since they bought the club, whatever happened to all the superstars they were going to sign....
Formica rumoured to be going, Jason Roberts gone, Samba will almost certainly be gone, rumour that Dann wants out, Hoillet won't sign and will be gone in summer.....
At least their wage bill be much reduced in championship next season.Hoilett hinted at signing a new deal if the owners brought in some new players and blackburn have brought in 2 players tim payne and modeste on loan and the capture of scott sutter from young boys is nearly a done deal


28 Jan 2012 07:49:50
Neither Noone or Hoskins want to go, McKay's valuation of Noone means that either Cardiff are potless or Malky is clueless.(10)(7)Noone will be a cardiff player within a few daysOr Malky's a genuis & has got a pacy, skillful winger for a great price

What's this about Alan Smith to MK Dons?! As an lufc fan Id be devastated but I understand his gf is from Surrey(10)(3)According to SSN clockwatch, the deal is there to be done, don't think he's signed and the only other sources I can are questionable tabloid papers..... Would he really drop down 2 leagues when there is some interest from the championship?..... Lets hope SG/KB make a late swoop to try and hijack the deal!..... Plus its only supposedly a loan deal.... getting himself in the shop window for the summer!Fair play to the 'ambitious' league one club, a lot of respect for the club if they pull this one off!So? Mk Dons are based in Bedfordshire.Because league one is all hes good for,get over it.Think you will find it is buckinghamshire just outside northamptonAgree with the top is rather strange but hey, as you say, he needs games and it'll put him in the shop window


28 Jan 2012 02:01:25

samba will not sign for qpr and blackburn want at least 10mil before they consider letting him go,his personnal choice is spurs,but he wants to double his 65k a week currently(good luck with that one).hoillett will see his contract out till the end of the season and then consider offers would prefer a top nw club(3)(17)Samba is going PSG for 4.5 plus add onsTime will tell think there may be a shock yet to come on this one, maybe QPR or maybe Man U wouldn't surprise meI heard that hoilett that hinted at signing a new contract if then owners showed some improvementThere is no way Blackburn are paying a player 65k a week.Spot on the above....Samba is not on 65 grand a week at Blackburn..infact the figure is closer to 20-25 grand a weekHave heard from a mate on the inside at qpr that it is a done deal and samba signs for qpr on tuesday.I don't see Spurs offering anything like £10 mill for Samba to be a CB cover and they already have four better CB's even if King and Gallas are nearing the end of their careers. I think he'll end up staying where he is
