29 Jan 2013 19:40:02
I have close sources that Brighton have made a 3rd bid for Van Dijk, which is believed to be in the region of £3.5m

Rubbish, Brighton haven't got that kind if money to spend after they spent 2m on ulloa. Wish people would get with reality

I think it would take a bid like that to take him away from the club. They're desperate to keep hold of him as they're struggling in the league. They have said they have no plans to sell him in the winter market. So I think Brighton will be looking elsewhere.



29 Jan 2013 19:34:18
Danny Hattersley looks set to be be joining local rivals Macclesfield on a fee believed to be in the region of 20k.

29 Jan 2013 19:23:51
Michel Vorm on his way to Barcelona, looks like it has more substance since he is not even on the bench for the Sunderland game.. David Villa possibility back on ?

Villa will be going nowhere, his missus has just had a baby. Very unlikely he will leave his family back in Spain to play in the Premiership.

Michel Vorm has a minor knee injury; that's why he was not included in tonights lineup.



29 Jan 2013 19:20:42
There have been many teams watchin Brayford, Swansea have played some entertaining football over the last number of seasons. As a Derby fan I would not want Brayford to leave but money aside I could understand the dead towards Swansea as a football playin club but I would question the location, who would honestly want to live there.? Not me

It's interesting the number of people who question why a player would possibly live in South Wales. Typical question from the uneducated. Have they ever been to swansea. If they had they would know that the areas around swansea, such as the mumbles, the gower etc are amoungest the most desirable places to live in the uk.



29 Jan 2013 19:19:35
Johnny Russell and Gary Mackay-Steven to Celtic by close of window.

Dušan Kuciak to West Ham from Legia Warsaw



29 Jan 2013 17:40:50
with luke steeles bew contract not making an apperance and his exit looking more inevitable. Barnsley look set to sign trialist nathen miller to offer cover for ben alnwick

This is not true. Luke steele will sign new contract at end of season even if Barnsley go down. (loyalty costs nothing) and Luke is loyal.

Iv heard about barnsley looking at this lad Miller. apparently sheffield wednesday and bristol city want luke steele.



29 Jan 2013 17:38:29
Norwich city will sign striker gary hooper by tomorrow for a fee of £8 million

Gary Hooper is not a Spurs target, and Damiao will be announced imminently.

The Oracle

29 Jan 2013 20:14:53
I'll bet we don't sign Hooper or winkle, if we sign anyone they will be at best championship players or on loan. city always do things on the cheap, don't see that changing any time soon. That's why with 2 days to go we've only signed a 2nd rate keeper for 6months !!



29 Jan 2013 17:32:26
Becchio's odds to join Norwich City have been slashed in the last 24 hours...

29 Jan 2013 17:28:47
Cheltenham are in talks to take Rotherham striker Kayode Odejayi on loan.



29 Jan 2013 17:17:30
Swansea have tabled a £2million bid for Derby County's John Brayford. The cash for Derby, and the offer of Premiership football for Brayford may be too hard to turn down.

It will get rejected. 2 mil not enough.3 million would be very close to the derby board accepting I feel

Laudrup has shortly claimed that Swansea will not buy any players in this transfer window, only loan signings if any al all. ML is very satisfied with his squad. He will wait until summer to buy players to strenghten the squad. So this rumour may not be true.

2 or 3 million is an absolute joke for the best right back outside the Prem. Has to be worth 6 million absolute minimum by todays prices.

Majority of people agree he is the best right back in the league with Burnley's Kieran Trippier.

Could play for any premiership team outside the top 8.

Derby have said through their newly appointed CEO Sam Rush they do not need to sell any players at all for finance. Brayford is not one of the highest earners and so that would not be a contributing factor.

Nonetheless Derby have a fantastic replacement in Kieran Freeman who was excellent for Notts County.

2 million would be great money for the club and could be invested elsewhere into some experience which everyone knows Derby County needs to take the step up and not be outside playoff candidates. However with manager Nigel Clough standing firm on not selling players, more money may be required.

In conclusion, from research Derby have had no bids for any of their players including Will Hughes (surprised), so this could potentially be their first bid for an asset of theirs. 2.5 million with add ons (sell on clause as he is still young) would be accepted no doubt I believe. But 2 million would likely be rejected after respectful consideration as Brayford was bought to the club as part of a 2 player deal from Crewe with James Bailey that totalled to 1 million pounds.



29 Jan 2013 17:16:52
Alan shearer set to sign as Huddersfield manager after Wednesday's game with Cystal Palace.

I bet deano will get sir alex ferguson and then he will sign wayne rooney and messi and ronaldo......... more likely to come true than some of these rumours

Would be good but he would manage a premier league side.



29 Jan 2013 17:05:57
Colchester midfielder Anthony Wordsworth, 24, is close to completing a reported £100,000 move to Ipswich Town. Wordsworth, who has been with the U's since 2003, has attracted a huge amount of interest in the last year and the move will not come as a surprise to many within the club. He is currently into the last six months of his contract with the U's and the move is expected to be completed within Thursday's deadline.



29 Jan 2013 16:54:39
Richard Stearman has just signed a loan deal until the end of the season. Ipswich are also closing in on Colchester United Centre mid Anthony Wordsworth.



29 Jan 2013 16:46:48
grant holt heading out of norwich so that they can raise the funds for both gary hooper and ricky van wolfswinkel

Cant see you signing both!!!

29 Jan 2013 18:48:30
Don't think Grant Holt is worth about 20,000,000 which it will cost you for both those players.

Raise funds for both! how much do you think he's worth?

It says raise funds for the 2 players not pay for both! we all know holts not worth 20mill, do you read things add them up in your head and then make up the rest as a fairytale?

29 Jan 2013 22:18:09
regardless, lets just admit that none of this will happen.

West brom considering a move for tom ince with odemwingie likely to be on his way to QPR when 3rd offer comes in.

Would be nice but never going to happen

At least his english and we not contributed to the downfall of the english football team by signing even more foriegn players, can someone answer why we have an academy then sign cheap forieners that stop our own academy players coming through, thorne s only one in at the moment because dan ashworth bought him to the club. get berahino in to replace wingie please at least his english////

29 Jan 2013 23:10:42
Heard Albion scouted ince last season but wouldn't stump up 8m for him. If (hopefully) odemwingie goes then more than likely a move for Albert adomah

I'm an Albion fan and I know we won't pay the money to sign him... We rarely spend big in the Summer never mind in the last few days in January.



29 Jan 2013 16:17:11
Bradford city's are in discussions to bring in anthony wordsworth from colchester. Discussions between the two clubs have been on going for the past week and look set to be concluded tommorrow.

29 Jan 2013 15:48:18
Rotherham to complete the signing of Calvin Zola from Burton before the transfer deadline and are hoping to agree a deal to sign former striker Chris O'Grady on loan from local rivals Sheffield Wednesday after the big striker has fallen out of favour at S6. This may also depend on if the Millers can ship out another one or possibly two players to free up funds. Top of the list to leave are mis-firing striker Kayode Odajeyie and one of either full backs Mark Bradley or long serving Dale Tonge

Zola joining league 1 team this week

I've also heard O'Grady has been in talks with Rotherham over a loan move with a view to a permanent move should the millers gain promotion to league 1



29 Jan 2013 15:46:17
Mkdons to make a bid for Elgin striker Darren Lavery and they also want Jamie Vardy on loan till end of season.

29 Jan 2013 15:40:37
Ipswich have bid rejected from Cheltenham Town for McGlashan, Mick thought to be interested by Gleeson at MK Dons however not sure if they can afford him.

Cheltenham have received no bids for Jermaine McGlashan.

Well he won't be bidding for him before the end of this transfer window as StevieGlee is out for 6-8 weeks for an op.



29 Jan 2013 15:05:46
Mbokani could make a move too a premier league club after a good performance in the AFCON.



29 Jan 2013 16:08:05

29 Jan 2013 16:02:59

29 Jan 2013 16:00:27
Odemwingie will go to QPR. Now being held up by Mackie being part of deal and agreeing terms.

Cant understand why he wants to leave and play championship football!!!

29 Jan 2013 23:12:15
Only q.p.r player Albion would be interested in is hoilett.....why would Albion want a player who can't get in the q.p.r team? They'd need a winger not a striker



29 Jan 2013 15:48:58
Rotherham fan here, strong rumours that Kayode Odejayi is off to Wrexham. Whether its on loan or permanant I don't know.

McGoldrick doesn't like his time at Ipswich and is considering moving back to Coventry City SOON on a loan deal, may turn to a permanent deal.

Signed on a 2 year contract, the loan was only done as he would have broken Championship regulations if he signed permanently before June

Thats because league 1 is his level

It's a season long loan and therefore cannot be recalled from ITFC



29 Jan 2013 13:25:04

Paul Murray has re signed for Oldham Athletic on a contract until the end of the season. Reece Wabara has been told he may be allowed to stay at Oldham on loan until the end of the season, however there is interest from another club

The "other" interested party is Crystal Palace, it doesn't appear Reece will be back at Latics as he has tweeted, he's loved every minute, but its time to move up a level on the advice of his coaching staff.

Also David Platt who looks after Wabara, friend of Dickov has said he is happy with Wabara at oldham so don't be surprised if he signs till the end of the season and he can also play against Everton.

gillingham are looking at bringing 2 new signings before thursday. Alan gow from exeter has been linked within the club. Martin allen has been a big admirer of alan gow and is keen to boost the midfield. Also being linked is vincleot from brighton. He was on loan at the gills at the start of the season and martin is keen to get him back on loan as he feels he needs to build the midfield for the rest of the season for the gills to get promotion.



29 Jan 2013 12:43:09
Contrary to rumours, Matjej Vydra's agent has announced that no offer has been made from Roma.



29 Jan 2013 12:37:19

Southend said no. End of story.

29 Jan 2013 18:35:54
For the last time HE IS NOT FOR SALE! And we won't be selling him to a promotion rival anyway, any fee we could get is irrelevant compared to the financial reward of promotion. He is here til at least the summer, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he re-signs with Southend long before then.

I'm afraid he is going. Bit annoyed to be selling him to a rival.

30 Jan 2013 00:21:11
Check the Southend Echo story online, he will not be sold it's as simple as that. The club have stated that it doesn't matter what offer comes in he is staying. End of.

The permanent signings of Almen Abdi and Matej Vydra will be announced on Wednesday, along with new signing Jeremy Helan.

29 Jan 2013 17:04:18
Am I the only one who doesn't believe in the Helan signing?

The way Watford are getting players from Grenada and Udinese without paying and are allowed 13 loans just because they have the same owner disadvantages every other club in the Championship and its completely ridiculous that the football league aren't doing anything about it

29 Jan 2013 20:45:43
Helan has signed
For Sheff Weds until the end of the season with a view to permanent transfer. Never wanted to move sarf

Martin allen sees this as being a good addition to the squad to get the gills promoted. a deal is set to be sotred in time before thursday on loan till the end of the season.

Get your facts right, crofts is gillingham born and bread, parents live here went to school here came through the ranks here!

29 Jan 2013 12:28:57
Reading FC confirm bid for Thomas ince they'll push bid to 7mil plus guaranteed first team football this will now go through plus of course add ons. Could mean player exchange though

Blakpool refuse to sell

I can't see him signing for Reading, whether he gets first team football or not. He could easily join a team much higher up and bigger than Reading. However I think he will stay at Blackpool until the summer then evaluate from there.

Can he have an escape clause written into his contract if Reading get relegated that he can leave on a free?

Come on.....he wants Prem football not playing back in the Championship after 12 weeks.

29 Jan 2013 18:51:59
Won't go to reading like all the other big players they were linked with it's a sideways move. Willy wolves



29 Jan 2013 12:21:25

29 Jan 2013 11:54:58
Leeds united were today looking to finalise move for Bristol City frontman Jon Stead. Stead, 29, was not Warnocks preferred choice yet the financial situation at Elland Road meant that these cannot meet the asking price of SV Zulte Waregem for Habib Habibou, paving the way for Yorskhire born Stead to return north.

This better be a joke

Not a chance my friend, your either a Leeds fan dreaming, or a Bitter City Fan

One of the funniest rumours I've seen so far! i'm not even going to bite on it...

Deal has been agreed for Habibou and he tweeted that he is joining he only has 6 months left and Stead would be more expensive

We only have 3 strikers for now. He won't be leaving.

As a Leeds fan living in Bristol I haven't heard Stead on the wire to join Leeds. Just getting rid of Bechio at 29 so Stead would not offer anything more. Better off with Haribou who is younger with money from Bechio sale



29 Jan 2013 11:39:06

Gedo - Al Ahly - £500,000
Wickham - Sunderland - £1, 500,000/Loan
Adomah - Bristol City - £2,000,000 - £3,000,000
El Mohamedy - Sunderland - Loan
DJ Campbell - QPR - £900,000


None of these are confirmed, just strongly linked with the club. Gedo signing is looking very promising with the player stating his intent to join the club, now just waiting on confirmation of Al Ahly letting Hull talk to the player. Also looking at Adomah if El Mohamedy unable to sign permenantly. Although Adomah strongly linked with Crystal Palace. If both fail, they will look for a loan deal for El Mohamedy in the loan window. Hull talking to DJ Campbell however the asking price and high wages are a stumbling block in the negotiations. If these negotiations fail, Hull will look at a loan deal for Connor Wickham in the loan window.

I will be supprised if you get any of these, defo no chance of getting Adomah

Adomah and Wickham not linked at all. Elmo likely, Gedo possible, DJ Campbell not happening now. Not a chance City are spending more than a million having splashed out on Brady and Meyler

Little news from East Anglia regarding Norwich:

Ricky van Wolfswinkel is expected to completer his deal with the Canaries on either Wednesday, though more likely Thursday. van Wolfswinkel's current club Sporting Lisbon will aim to get as much as they can for the Dutch striker, the fee of which could amount to £6 Million.

Should van Wolfswinkel sign, Harry Kane will be free to return to Tottenham after a disappointing loan spell.

Norwich are also looking at bringing one more player, though that target is unknown. The player is expected to be a midfielder as the search could see Chris Houghton dip into his former club, Birmingham.

Should be worth noting that Luciano Becchio is on Norwich's radar who has expressed his desire to leave Leeds.

Why would he go to you when Swansea are a possible step

How come sporting have excepted 6million when asking for 12 do talk some sence

News that Sporting has made a bid for an Argentinian striker adds weight to this story. Also Norwich have bid for Curtis Davis but is rejected

We should sack Hughton and bring in Grayson to manage his team from 3 years ago.

Norwich had a 8 million bid rejected by sporting but are going in with another bid and holt could yet be used as a make weight for hooper

Bristol City have said that Marvin Elliot, Cole Skuse and Jon Stead will not be offered a new contract. all 3 of these have contracts running out end of this season. I also do not understand how City can cash in on M. Woolford and Y.Bolaise be looking to sale A.Adomah and not bring in any wide talent to replace these. the only guess is City are in a lot of money trouble and can not afford to keep there best players. there has also been talk of City willing to let either S.Baldock or S.Davies leave the club.(not now Taylor is injured i'm guessing) WHAT IS GOING ON AT ASHTON GATE??? (prepairing for the drop?) ed.....?

We have Anderson, Pearson, Burns, Bryan, who all play wide. We may well go down but the club will be in a much better condition overall.

Be great for Rovers and City to go down this season.

Woolford was bad, Bolaise wanted to go. If we sell Albert it will be for financial reasons only. Elliott is no good anymore. Skuse has been average at best - maybe should move to right back but he will want a big wedge to sign a new deal. It's no secret that the wage bill must be slashed in time for financial fair play

Thats utter sh** about skuse not being given a new deal as he is the only good and passionate city player

We need all our top players to preform well if we are to beat the drop this year

The manager has already said he will not put the young boys out as he want experience, are you telling me that you are happy for the list of players named to leave the club with no replacement for them. (by replacement I mean same standard or better) no proven fast wingers left at the club once albert is gone (fact)

This is a load of cubble, don't know who you think you are but you seems to have your knowledge not up to scratch...

M. Woolford Elliot and stead are all shocking Elliot and skuse are always injured skuse is not the best cm I have seen in a city shirt I would like too see bobby Reid play more after all the hype he has had over the last few years kilkenny can go aswell there are better cm in league 2 than who is in our team at the moment bring hogan ephraim in he was good for us

All LM's ^^^^ and they don't have the pace and skill to constantly beat a winger

Think some guys are not reading the Bristol City news feeds properly. The club are offloading high wage earners and have decided that O'Driscoll is the manager to coach and rebuild new young talent team in Div 1 if necessary. don't start dreaming or fretting over obvious management course of actions. And don't expect them to bring in any experience or 'named known' players



29 Jan 2013 11:17:31
Reading will sign Robert Koren from Hull City for 1m if they fail to sign David Bentley or Tom Ince

Never in a millon years never mind a million pound just exstended contract

He's going no where!

You think we would sell him for 1 million? You must be joking.



29 Jan 2013 11:13:42
Reading are lining up a 750k swoop for Sheffield United's Nick Blackman and a 1.5m move for Birmingham's Curtis Davies now that Reading can't sort out a deal with Stoppila Sunzu's club

Crystal Palace had a 1.2 Million bid rejected by United, so I doubt he'd be sold for 750,000. Also reports suggest that Palace, Reading and another club are in a 3 way bidding war over Blackman. But Blackman has already said he isn't going down South.


I think your wrong pal, deal agreed for 4 and a half year contract for £1.25m, just has to pass medical tomorrow

Blackman said he'll consider any premier league side after knowing we're willing to cash in on him if the price is right.

Read it on tv and in the star

Agreed sum of £1.25M for Blackman. 200k probs allocated to transfers



29 Jan 2013 08:47:11
young centre forward rob duffy set to sign for notts county fc for the rest of the season on loan with a view to a permanent transfer, price already agreed with lincoln city around 15k

I think you will find that Rob Duffy, known as Duffelino in Mansfield folklore, is neither young nor a striker of any ilk. If Ncfc are interested, alls not lost for aspiring footballers.

Young? he's 30

Not true Jonathon Forte will join before the weekend Ray Trew backing this with money



29 Jan 2013 11:03:44
George Boyd will not be leaving in this window but will leave on a free in the summer. Grant McCann will also leave in the summer. Luke Freeman will be joining Posh in the summer as Fergie is still debating if Newell is good enough.



29 Jan 2013 10:53:00
Richard Stearman Is at Portman Road Today to sign a Loan deal. Mick Mccarthy has managed him before at wolves. Apparently big Mick won't spend big til the summer

Mick will be having a clear out in the summer. He'll then build his own squad. Stearman could easily be at Portman Road beyond the season end.

In other words he will be gettin the rubbish what he left wolves with thank god



29 Jan 2013 09:58:47
Amine Linganzi is training with Pne along with Craig Beattie.

He already played for preston so it will be a good move as for beattie not to sure

Hasnt Linganzi fallen out with Westley once already.

Why would he come back?

Rob Hulse has signed on loan for Millwall till the end of the season

Wow talk about going back 5 steps, why not Harry Kane he's a goal soccer, so no more signings so glade I'm in Australia for the rest of the season won't be over the den week in week out watching us slip down the table

Give him 5 minutes to get injured, so he can join Tyson on the sick list!

Eligable against barnsley

Give it a rest, kane is at norwich so get behind the lions instead of moaning all the time !

Thats the attitude we want from our own fans!

29 Jan 2013 19:38:11
People are entitled to their own opinion, I tend to agree with the post above

U lot aren't proper fans clearly. have faith in kenny jackett he's brought in loads of great players who you proberly doubted aswell. I hope he prover you WRONG

Heard we was getting ronaldo but he didn't fancy the one bedroom flat above the chicken shop on old kent rd



29 Jan 2013 10:00:54
Matthew Barnes Homer Luton are looking at the conference top scorer, and a deal could be struck to take him back to the club, walsall and coventry also interested.

Why would Luton want him back?

Whats that I smell ? Ahh yeah rubbish COYH

29 Jan 2013 18:26:24
His to good for luton anyway.. Why stay in conference when by the sound of it league clubs are after him. 20 goals already in a mid table macclesfield side is a pretty good return and he shreaded cardiff apart who are top of the championship doesn't surprise league clubs are looking at him.



29 Jan 2013 07:47:27
Albert Adamoah is believed too have immediately agreed a deal with Palace after the game vs Niger. Also Balotelli looks set for Milan for 17 million pounds, with a majority of the deal being clauses.



29 Jan 2013 09:44:53
*from a source close to Vicarage Road*

Matej Vydra has rejected Roma's 4 Million offer and 10k a week deal in favour of stability and assurance of first team football to encourage his development.

The Transfer fee is not his to reject - Udinese would laugh at 4m and not give permission to speak to the player - so this is all made up!



29 Jan 2013 09:44:30

Brek Shea deal is back on again!! After so much doubt we will have an answer by today or tomorrow at the very latest once he has completed physical/medical



29 Jan 2013 09:24:33
brighton are believed to be in talks with Gillingham about Andrew crofts returning to priestfield and could be done as soon as Wednesday, Gillingham are also looking to sign rob hulse and brian howard in a frantic few days.

Rob Hulse has just signed for Milwall.

No thanks, crofts turned into a billy big you know what and couldn't wait to leave - too defensive as well for what we need

and rob hulse has signed for millwall

As much as I would like to see Rob Hulse at Gills, he is way too good for league two (or one if we get promoted) Besides he is in advanced talks with Millwall

Crofts back to gillingham are you kidding he would never go back there he loves it at brighton

Crofts Back to Gillingham--he came from Norwich!! who bought him from BHA---and Hulse has signed for Millwall--get your facts right---even tho it is a Rumours site!

Crofts doesn't want to go

Rob hulse is joining millwall

29 Jan 2013 16:42:49
utter tosh - again a nothing post!

Ha, Crofts to Gillingham? Come on, post transfer with sources



29 Jan 2013 07:29:05
Just seen some articles from Dallas saying that Brek Shea is on his way to Stoke for a medical THIS week.

Don't know how much truth is in this one since he was suppose to come last week and apparently Stoke were no longer interested according to tv.

Also Stoke are apparently interested in signing Jedinak from Crystal Palace for a around £2.5 millon pounds according to the paper

I think the Jedinak rumour is just basic transfer speculation, He's been Palace's best player so far this season and still has 18 months on his contract. Although I think 2.5m would be enough to buy out his contract regardless of it having 18 months left. As of Brek Shea, would love to see him at the Brit, He's quick, tall and very athletic when he's fit.

2.5 for Jedinak? Yep, I read it in the paper too, but really? Wouldn't read too much into it if I were you..

2.5 I doubt would be enough to tempt palace. He is very crutical to the way they play and they aren't exactly short of cash after Zaha deal. I guess if th eplayer really wants to leave it may happen. He certainly bossed the midfield in the FA cup games

Jedi for 2.5 million what comic did you get that from, you won`t be getting any of our players on the cheap no more.Look what Zaha went for and wake up.

Yeah I heard he was very good in the cup games. tv Stoke said he was probably the best player on the pitch in the first-leg



29 Jan 2013 09:10:45
Word coming out of AVFC that Hull City have agreed to take striker Darren Bent on loan for the remainder of the season. Down to the player now.

So Hull won't take Fraizer Campbell due to his 30,000 wages, yet they'll take Darren Bent who will no doubt be on a lot more?

Why would he go and play for hull with steve bruce in charge. that's partly why he left. along with money of course.

Villa will pay the majority of his wages

While it sounds really unlikely, got to remember FC would've been a four year commitment. Bent would be 5 months.



29 Jan 2013 09:03:26
Bradford back in talks with Paul Benson after there rejection last time

Totall wrong Benson is going to Cheltenham on loan until the end of the season. He won't go up north and has stated he wants to stay in the south and lets face it that would be culture shock going up there. {Ed003's Note - I know imagine a world where people are friendly and actually speak to each other}

Signing for Cheltenham Town on loan... set to be completed today.

He's had his chance to sign for Bradford! It's shame too because it wouldn't have been long before he got to visit the south again with the wembley league cup final looming!...never mind you live and learn hey!



29 Jan 2013 08:48:42
Strong rumour at Coventry that a deal has been done to sign a midfielder with Premiership experience. Part of the deal would involve them unloading Steve Jennings, with Rotherham wiiling to sign him.

Rotherham don't need any more midfielders- already overloaded

Why would we get rid of Steven Jennings when he's been one of our best players since Robins's arrival?

Why would we unload Steven Jennings.

Steve Jennings who plays week in week out, and is a consistant player. I really doubt he would be going anywhere.

Yes you do, and defenders and strikers,, and keepers,, and a manager

We need jennings he's brilliant

29 Jan 2013 18:55:33
Steve Jennings is slow, but has a good engine, yes he is starting, but that's because we have knowone else.



29 Jan 2013 08:34:02

Hey ed any truth in crouch going qpr or zarate coming too stoke? {Ed003's Note - The Crouch one is interesting but is only speculation as far as I'm aware,somebody suggested Zarate is available on loan....? }

Both Zarate's agent and Lazio's Owner/Manager has stated that Zarate is not available on loan as they seek a sale in the region of 5m

Well. If je is a loaner its pulis a coats kinda baller so he is definatelt likely



29 Jan 2013 00:58:19
I have it on good authority that Chelsea striker Adam Coombes will join Shrewsbury Town on loan til the end of the season.

Whats he like?

Been unlucky with Chelsea in regards to injuries. A decent player but no where near premier league standard.



29 Jan 2013 00:12:25
Aiden Mcgeady has lost motivation playing in Russia, so S K Moscow are looking to cash in with Sunderland the most likely destination

Reading FC to take advantage of Birmingham's cash problems with a bargain bid of £1million, testing the resolve of the brummies.

Leeds United will bid for Reading's Kaspars Gorkks following Max Gradel ruling out a return. As much as us Royals hate Warnock and Leeds I'd be happy for Gorkks.

Reading to bid £8million for Thomas Ince rivaling Liverpool's £6million bid. Thomas Ince's father Paul Ince has said that if his son is to go to the PL he wishes for him to have first team football rather than go to a team like Man Utd or Liverpool.

Jake Taylor has been recalled by Reading FC after two months on loan at Cheltenham.

A 1m bid for who?

There's plenty room for Ince on the left wing at LFC. Getting regular chances won't be a problem if that's the issue

1 mil bid for whom?

Speak for yourself. As a fellow Royal I actually like Neil Warnock, at least he has some character. Hope Gorkss does join Leeds, good championship player and a great club who should be in the Premier League.

Oh sorry hahah. A bid for Curtis Davies. It's old news but the amount isn't.

They want to buy Birmingham City for a million quid? Now, that's cajones!

Yeh paul ince did say that, he also said he would only go to a top side ; sorry reading you not a top side, be extremely supprised if he went anywhere outside the top six.

No appointment until at least Thursday Dean hoyle is away till Wednesday, Huddersfield also yet to speak to Nigel Adkins as he has taken a break after being shown the door by Southampton and doesn't arrive back in the UK until Wednesday.

Adkins is back on Saturday

Adkins not back in the UK until the weekend, Lillis in charge until the Cardiff game at least.

Funny this because dean lives next door to me and he has been home all this week



28 Jan 2013 23:18:50
Vydra to sign on 5 year deal by Wednesday latest

I wish people would read their msgs before they sent. Sign for whom?

For watford, hooray!

29 Jan 2013 10:48:30
Hopefully for Watford, but lets me honest. He has been linked to about 10 other teams now.



28 Jan 2013 23:13:03
Portsmouth Fc set to sign Former triallist Darjan Curanovic, ( Goalkeeper, 26 years )

Simon Eastwood to follow Darel Russell and leave Portsmouth

Hopefully. Eastwood is awful. One of the worst keepers I have ever seen at Fratton Park.

He never went on trial, his trial was cancelled before he was due to arrive after they watched him let in 9 goals against a rubbish team

Still sounds better than Eastwood!



28 Jan 2013 23:07:25
Stearman loan untill end of season has been confirmed view to permanent,,,, also we are looking at a winger not sure of whom Stephen hunt as he has been frozen out of wolves and another central midfielder I believe to be A loan from a big club in England

Hunt hasn't been frozen out he's been injured for ages



28 Jan 2013 23:02:14
Little movement expected in or out at Bristol City this week. Mcfadzen deal with Crawley put on hold as doubts about fitness, and this may now happen in the summer. Other players coming in will be loan deals in February once the window shuts.
Bids have been received for Adomah, but club not likely to sell unless silly money is offered (at least 2.5m up front)

Err what about the sell on clause in favour of Barnet ?

No sell on clause as Bristol got him after tribunal
