Gaston Ramirez has at last completed his move to Southampton. {Ed003's Note - thank god for that ;) }

Thanx for your patience Ed!!

Haha Ed003. Saints fan here, couldn't agree more!

Liverpool will steal him at the last minute!
nothing confirmed we have him!!

Not on OS yet!

Looks true this time. Was announced by CNN Italia correspondent Tancredi Palmeri late last night

Presumably will be announced via the OS some point this morning

All these premireship players being brought for pennies and why aint saints buying!
Gunna be a tough season!

Cant find anywhere. If confirmed on Italian tv why no mention on ssn

Waiting on work permit

Everton new players by 11pm tomorrow

Adam 5million

Ovida 5million

Gouffran 5million


Stracqualasie loan

No way can we afford £15m after the Pienaar and Mirallas deals. Oviedo and 1 more seem set to happen though



30 Aug 2012 23:00:37
Matt Derbyshire and Jonathan Greening look set to depart the City ground tomorrow. Derbyshire could be offered a way out via Milwall or Sheffield Utd. Whereas Greening will be down joining Swindon, the central midfielder is expected to meet Di Canio around 10 in the morning.

Swindon town cannot pay high wages so doubt it, one goes out one comes in.



30 Aug 2012 22:58:23
Frazier Campbell and Elmohammedy to sign for Hull City tomorrowto spearhead promotion push, Coppinger also a candidate

Campbell is a good goal scorer.................bye bye elmo

Bruce says he wants midfielder (Quinn) and a prem striker. This could either mean Frazier Campbell could return or QPR said Jay Bothroyd is talking to an 'un-named club' about a possible transfer...



30 Aug 2012 22:54:38
Paul Taylor signs for itfc,done job



30 Aug 2012 22:41:24
burnley close to signing harry kane on loan until janurary

Burnley have just signed Cameron stewart on loan and then we can sign him on a permanent basis - source;SKY

Burnley have signed cameron stewart from hull on loan until end of season



30 Aug 2012 22:28:10
Daniel Bogdanavic will be a Portsmouth player in the next few hours

He has already signed with a eastern european side

His signed for pompey his waiting on international clearance

He signed for a Maltese side (if your geography classes that as Eastern European) and he's now about to sign for Portsmouth - FACT

That is why Pompey are waiting for International clearance for him

No, he is a Fratton discussing terms

Did he sign or not? Nothing I have seen confirms it and the deadline is now passed, unless of course he has no club and the deadline is meaningless?

Didn't sign last minute problems

Michael Appleton may now return to WBA for Chris Woods on loan once the loan window opens



30 Aug 2012 22:19:27
Brighton have made an offer for two forwards , Tuncay Sanil and Jay Bothroyd.

The story i have heard is that brighton were interested in bothroyd until tuncay became available.
so i think tuncay is the preferred choice

You can have bothroyd n the boro will have tuncay back

I reckon both. Still a big budget left

Tuncay is not mine, need someone that can score a goal tuncay cant hit a barn door. Jay is the man they need! even if it is a season loan.

That would be 3 which one has gone on loan to sw



30 Aug 2012 22:19:01
PDC signs Darren Ward and John Bostock on loan until Jan with a view to a permanent on both. Adam Rooney to sign tomorrow in a swap deal with Paul Caddis going to Birmingham. Fedrico Bessone has had a medical and will also sign tomorrow from Swansea. Paul Benson going nowhere he is just injured.

Ipswich to sign Taylor, Gallagher , elekobi and st ledger

I wish your dream comes true !



30 Aug 2012 22:11:19
Huddersfield already linked with bids for Beckford from leicester and Austin from burnley to fill the boots left by Rhodes.

Did u see how austin played against hudds on saturday? awful no thanks

I doubt Huddersfield would want to spend all 8 million and they would have to pay at least 6 to prize Austin away from burnley. The most natural goal scorer in the league, just needs the service.

Exactly Lynch had Austin wrapped around his finger the whole match, Beckford would be good though

Can have my season ticket back if we get beckford, lazy. get some footballers in Larry, with speed and youth who know how to play

Beckford is going to be announced this morning along with a guy called hamill. then there are two more this afternoon by all accounts. happy days.

I think you'll find that the most natural goalscorer as just left Town for Blackburn.

Dundee guy signed as well now

Owls star man coming to the town thier goal machine Gary madine is no.1 target for our gaffer an will test owls resolve with a £2m+ offer

Most natural goalscorer in L1 maybe but 8million for a striker not yet proven in the championship is ridiculous , i hope hes absolutely rubbish for *******s (i mean blackburn ) haha , if rhodes is worth 8 million then austin must be worth at least 10 mill

Yep ,spot on , beckford, madine and russell signed , NOT , lol



30 Aug 2012 22:02:40
football italia state ramirez deal all agreed lets hope so this time



30 Aug 2012 21:52:35

Beckford to huddersfield is the word on the street.
Ask huggybear, it's gonna happen.

Tomorrow will be like christmas for huddersfield.
the question is who won't we sign not who will we sign. i heard four are coming in.

So funny, how was xmas , 1 present, whats his name , hammil or something,lol



30 Aug 2012 21:35:51
Hull signed Ahmed elmohamedy on season long loan i think this is a great signing because now we have someone to cross balls in as Stewart always messes around with it a now we have a tall German striker he needs some crosses well don brucey



Absolute rubbish. Francois is recovering from injury and is by far the best left back we have and is also cover for centre half where we have little cover.



30 Aug 2012 21:26:30
Turkish international Tuncay is on his way to Brighton and Hove Albion



30 Aug 2012 21:26:31
Liverpools Danny Wilson Season Loan
to Derek Mcinnes Bristol city, Derek knows
him from when at Glasgow Rangers!

McInnes left Rangers 8 (eight) years before Wilson was there so i doubt that very much

Seen in Bristol



30 Aug 2012 21:20:12
Can confirm Charlie austin and adomah are the top two targets, apparently Boro have agreed a fee with Burnley for Charlie Austin. Would love middlesbrough these to come off. Can't see adomah tbh but austin is apparently very close. Craig Dawson on loan too, used for Rhys Williams cover

You wont get Adomah, after seeing a non proven forward in the championship going for 8 million, Bristol City have doubled there price to 16 million for Adomah!!

Would love him but ut aint goin to happen taylor and boyed yes yes cum on mogga with them 2 in we will go up and up the boro been wanting taylor from day one he would make my day true boro fan ear moggnut

Doubt Charlie will leave as Middlesbrough are in the same league and Burnley don't need the money. Plus, we are running low on strikers at the moment so it could be a long season if we lose him.

We won't be selling Austin, we only have 2 fit strikers and wouldn't sell for less than 5millon

Craig dawson is already back up at wba why would he go on loan to cover at crap boro!

When theres strikers like bothroyd, tuncay, beckford and maynard all looking at signing for championship clubs then austin become quite an underwhelming target. would love to see adomah come but just cant see it...and a loan CB would be better than amagou cos when rhys comes back (and maybe batesy) we'll have too many CBs on the books!

Be careful West Brom fan. Boro were miles infront of you 3 yrs ago and look what happened. We probably will be again in another 2 yrs. Be careful who you slag off. You are living on borrowed time in the prem and havent made any signings to keep you up



30 Aug 2012 21:11:37
Nigel Reo Coker will start negotiations with Brighton tomorrow. Deadline day does not affect the situation so the deal will probably not go through tomorrow. Will keep everyone informed about it.

Going to Hull



30 Aug 2012 21:01:21
Bradford City have signed wantawsy Alan Judge from Notts County in a swap deal involving Nahki Wells going in the opposite direction. Judge underwent a medical at Valley Parade this evening.

No chance. There are bids of 1 mill plus on the table for him

Keep Dreaming i think KC would rather get the cash instead off a league 2 player and he wont go too league 2 hes good enough for championsip :L Keep dreaming BRADFORD FAN!

Haha tell me another one mate..are you tommy cooper in disgiuse

Haha keep dreaming NOTTS COUNTY fan! No way would Nahki Wells want to go to County!

Cus he knows hes not good enough

Nahki Wells is not even guaranteed a place at Bradford. He has had half a dozen decent games in his career & has to be the most overhyped player ever - I am a City fan & hope he does well but lets get real. Connell is more likely to start than Wells moving forward.



30 Aug 2012 20:58:00
Just been posted that Taylor has agreed personal terms for the move from Pboro to Ipswich to go ahead



30 Aug 2012 20:51:40
Celtic will sign Willy Boly and Johnny Russell for definite tomorrow and Del Piero is a real possibility.


Not sure about Russell, think if he does move it'll be to one of the English clubs interested eg. Everton, Huddersfield or Bolton



30 Aug 2012 20:48:41
Andy carol gone on season long loan to Fulham.

Source - just mentioned on ... {Ed003's Note - West Ham }

He is a Hammer season loan

That'll teach me to half listen lol well corrected ed :) {Ed003's Note - no probs mate}



30 Aug 2012 20:37:43
Derby county will finish off
with Sammy Clingan on a Free and
an attempted bid for Johnny Russell.
Ben Davies and James bailey will be
sold and Tom Naylor will go out on loan

I wonder how many of these will come off today, if any? Remember the fiasco over Connor Sammon and the rest a couple of seasons ago. Still think a decent DOF would help the Rams.

I've heard that B. Davies is on his way out which is a shame as he is great at sey plays and playing balls ontp the box.. alot of our goals ce from his assists last season and half. as for Bailey heard he is going to Crystal palace. surely people can see Cloughies hands are tied he can only bring new players in after he sells...

Neither will come off. This guy is the same one who speaks out of his arse every time



30 Aug 2012 20:28:31
Hearing v strong rumours that we have agreed a few for Charlie Austin at burley. Random one but think there could be something in it. Watch this space. Also bikey getting a deal till end of the season



30 Aug 2012 20:18:14
Boro reportedly had bid accepted for charlie austin.

Never. 4 million. Bennett 2.5 m upfront



30 Aug 2012 20:04:27
MORE BREAKING LFC NEWS: Daniel Pacheco to join Championship Millwall on loan until January

Not unless Millwall are going to release any players to free up the salary budget

We will see,the loan market is 'soon'! players 'go' & 'come'!

It is possible!

Would be a good signing, that extra bit of class that we need. With Ward out and N'Guessan to follow there should be enough of the wage budget free to at least pay some of a loan signings wages.

"Not unless Millwall are going to release any players to free up the salary budget"

The key is that you let the parent club pay half the players wages like what half the championship clubs do.

If there is any truth in this at all & he did sign on loan,can anyone speak any/some Spanish at Millwall??? Unless he speaks a bit of English??

If this were to happen & I do mean 'IF' can anybody speak any/some Spanish at Millwall?? Unless he can speak some English?? Unlike the two Russians 'WE HAD'!!!!

31 Aug 2012 17:35:55
He said it's not true on his twitter.



30 Aug 2012 19:48:01
Middlesbrough will make a 2.5 million bid for peterbrough pair George Boyd and Paul Taylor on transfer deadline day and will bring in Andre amougou on a years contract as cover to the injured rhys williams

Unlikely seeing as Taylor has just signed for itfc

Taylor has tonight joined ipswich

Why would they offer that when every1 knows Peterborough had 1.7mil accepted for the pair?



30 Aug 2012 19:46:21
Interesting tiote not in newcastle squad, could he be in transfer talks

Neither is jonas, ben arfa, cabaye, elliott or santon does this maen they are in talks aswell

Neither is shola

He's injured!

Only 4 players started from first team. Cabaye and Tiote both there



30 Aug 2012 19:35:20
Amougo is training with Bristol city i expect him to sign for city tomorrow

He is now training with Boro

Calf injury

30 Aug 2012 19:10:59
CMS not leaving, Boothroyd to sign tomorrow with Orlandi plus one other deal which may end up being a loan.

2 to leave tomorrow, one free the other loan.

Outside transfer window Vicente to Elche CF, contract mutually confirmed is accurate as posted elsewhere today

Source - reliable at Club

Vicente isn't leaving.



30 Aug 2012 19:08:50
Just read that Nicky Maynard looks to be heading to Cardiff for £2.5 million, so much for leaving Bristol for the premiership !

Nicky Maynard missed playing in red, He has realised going to play for the redbirds is next best thing to being where he should of stayed!!



30 Aug 2012 19:07:50
On italian sports news they stated that southampton are interested in Alessandro Del Piero, oleeei

Would be good because he has been around so long he can share his expirience
and to see a name del piero on back of a saints shirt would be something else

You have to be telling the truth, that would be amazing. Ramirez should be on board tomorrow. UTS

That's been around a while. It is unlikely to happen.

No we aren't. Qpr, arsenal and someone else is in for him. No mention of saints anywhere I've looked.

37 years old off to celtic

A 37 year old?? Not good business!

He's sighing for s,one Aussie side

Given that Saints have been buying people younger than 25, I doubt they are really interested in him ... They plan to develop for the future and Del Puerto is close to retirement at that age really

Ramisez has apparently signed for Saints,FAB

Not a chance, even if he wanted it, we would never sign this player other than in some kind of coaching role

Hes either joining sydney or celtic

Don't rule out older players in some positions they can help. Just not this one. I think take Craig Gordon only free worth anything to us.

Andrea Orlandi has signed for Brighton from Swansea.

Not yet hes having a medical according to the local paper

Tuncay now linked

Good signing, just heard he passed his medical

Orlando is a quality player. Will be one of the best midfielders in the championship of he can stay fit. Sorry to see him go , never fulfilled his potential at Swansea due to injury. Good luck, I'll be watching for brightons results with him in the team. Leg jack!

Orlando is in America



30 Aug 2012 18:24:01
kallum higgingbotham will leave huddersfield once huddersfield have bought in a replacement for rhodes, he will go to carlisle, watch this space

Higginbotham is far too good for Carlisle & league 1! To be honest I don't understand why Grayson isn't giving him a run in the side. Without him for the play-offs I don't think htafc would off gone up!

Too good for League One! ha ha ha ha! Hes awful.

Higginbotham wouldn't get a game for Carlisle.

Not good enough.

If Adam Hamill comes in, with Ward and Scannel and maybe even Novak on the wing, Higginbotham will be surplus to requirements so this could be true.

Hammill has signed on loan until january

Swindon Town movers and shakers, hey there pop pickers its that time again for the Paolo revolving door show !

Paul Benson is rumoured to be standing at the door waiting to be thrown through, this is so true, but not leaving for Rotherham, he is off to Brentford.

Paul Caddis is being lined up by Birmingham City in a swap deal involving Adam Rooney.

Luke Rooney is on his way to Southend Utd on loan until January.

Oliver Risser is about to sign for Cheltenham and I

hate to say I told you so but Matt Ritchie will leave the club Wolves in a 1.75mill up front deal with add ons taking it to 2million.

Swindon continue to be linked with just about every player in the bottom two divisions, but all of tomorrows signings will be from higher leagues !

Kenwyne jones has passed a medical at wolves.!

Benson is staying. Ritchie will be here until at least January. Caddis will be going to Birmingham. Ward and Bostock have signed on loan until January. Risser would be a good signing for Cheltenham. Could be some truth in the Rooney departure...pods return to Gillingham more likely though.

John Bostock and Darren Ward have signed on loan. Expect Angelo Balanta, Luke Rooney and Federico Bessone to sign before the transfer window shuts tomorrow.

Adam Rooney you mean ^

They should make you a Freeman of the Town


I think you mean Adam Rooney!! and yes you are spot on with all of it!!

Adam Rooney!! And instead of Balanta it will Nicky Ajose.

If both Adam Rooney and Nicky Ajose sign then Benson will be able to leave.



30 Aug 2012 17:24:43
Boro have also been discussing personal terms with Andra Amougou, who is a free agent. But it's proving tough to thrash out a deal that is suitable to all parties.

Mowbray hasn't given up in his bid to sign the Cameroon-born 27-year-old, who was formerly known as Andre Bikey.



30 Aug 2012 17:23:12
Adam Hammill is apparently the winger Huddersfield are chasing plus a proven striker. Proven narrows the options down a lot.

Apparently Town are leading the chase for Hammill ahead of Forest, Burnley and Brighton.

Forest not interested tweet from their tech director advisor bloke

Huddersfield won't be getting a new winger, grayson happy with the misdfield, southern, clayton and norwood, with ward and scannell been able to play there.



30 Aug 2012 17:15:56
fulham to sign:

Just berbatov and richardson

Adam gone to stoke for 5 million



30 Aug 2012 17:09:48
Brighton manager Gus Poyet interested in signing uruguayan striker Diego Armasandi from Stoke. He played in loan at Brighton a few seasons ago under Poyet.

He is a midfield player, was on loan at Huddersfield last season, not impressed at all, can't pass or score.

Arismendi hasnt made many friends in england but is a good player

Looked good against valencia

31 Aug 2012 19:58:15
I really hope we get a good left back it's essential and a very good striker to. I'm American and stoke is the team I support



30 Aug 2012 17:09:44

30 Aug 2012 16:51:46
Notts County are set to sign up to seven more players before the transfer window. Three of them are free agents so they're is no real rush to sign them so boss Keith Curle will concentrate on the other four.
Curle is wanting to bring in three midfielders. Tottenham player John Bostock, QPR midfielder Shaun Derry and Bradford winger Kyel Reid are all targets and deals are expected to be done before Friday. Derry and Bostock on loan and Reid in an undisclosed transfer.
The four deal is expected to be Bournemouth goalkeeper Daryl Flahavan. The former Southend and Woking player impressed Curle last year and believes the 33 year old would bring the ideal experience.
The three players without current clubs are former Luton forward Calvin Andrew, former Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday player Tom Soares and former Stoke player John Halls. Soares is thought to be keen on signing a two year deal whilst Andrew and Halls will both sign 'short term' contracts.

Id like to see my old mate shaun derry back down the lane, to where it all began for him.

Can see most of these happening but until Bournemouth get another goalie flagaven won't be sold

IF all that actually happened, notts will start turning into another club who builds a team using palace players/ex palace players

I think curle will try to ship out the youngsters on loan too

You have more chance of signing
mike reid from radio 1

Bostock has gone to swindon n y all these rumours dat where looking at midfields we ave loads we need a central defender altho liddell is doing a fantastic job n wats happening with this striker that was at the harlepool match

Y don't stoke sign that German left back they had the trial with he seemed to do good Sebastian boanstich I think that's how u spell it {Ed039's Note - Polish, I believe he went on trial elsewhere)



30 Aug 2012 16:56:52
Preston are still wanting to sign two more players.
Arsenal youngster Chuks Aneke is expected to sign until January as the England under 19 international seeks more football.
Another is free agent Luke Daley. The former Plymouth midfielder is still only 22 and manager Graham Westley believes he can bring the best out of the winger.

Daley playes for lincon?? {Ed003's Note - not under contract though}

Luke Daley plays for Lincoln

Luke Daley was in fact told by Lincoln that he could leave on Wednesday after his non-contract agreement was terminated by the club.

Daley won't be good enough for Preston.

Daley was released from his cobtract at lincoln earlar this week.

30 Aug 2012 16:34:05
Bournemouth manager Paul Groves is set to spend cash before the end of the transfer window. The board have given him £1.5 million to tie some deals down
One loan deal happening will be QPR player Kieron Dyer. The former Newcastle and Ipswich star has been told he can leave Loftus Road and will join The Cherries until January.
Another former QPR player joining is Danny Gabbidon. The Welshman is without a club after his release from the London club and will sign a one year deal.
Another two defensive deals are close to happening. Lokomotiv Moscow have accepted a £600,000 bid from Bournemouth for Manuel da Costa and will fly to England tonight from Russia.
Another deal from abroad is FC Basel player Radoslav Kovac. He will sign on loan until January with a view to a permanent deal.
Both Kovac and da Costa haven't played much in recent months and would love moved back to England.

All are good players but both dyer and gabbidon being 33 yrs old they would both give experience in young afcb side. The two foreign players are interesting but probabally out of even bournemouth's league. DaCosta is a 26 yr tall central defender and is rated at £2.5m level, so would be a steal at £600,000. Kovac is also 32yr czech defender/midfield with international experience that might be good signing but £350,000 might be little high for senior player that does not get into fcbasel team? The £1.5m available for this window goes in-line with chairmans local paper report comments.

If these are true then WOW
gabbidon and dyer are championship standard but injury prone
Dont really no much but others but seem good
Heard pitman is joining us

This is a Swindon fan on a wind up! Not one of these deals will happen

Sounds legit

I believe the bournemouth russian billionaire owner was once a fan and shareholder of lokomotiva moscow and is likely he has useful contacts there. Pulling some strings could it be possible to get a highly rated 26 yr old central defender rated in £2m plus price tag for quarter that price. I will be surprised if Manual DaCosta is on the afcb team sheet on saturday's sheff utd v bournemouth game?

Wow where did this all come from? It will proberly end up not being true but these rumours till get me excited.

Supported Bournemouth for 30 years now, we do not need Gabbidon, we got enough centre backs. A fit and injury free dyer would be exciting, but I cannot see it. I personally feel it will be bye bye to Tubbs, Gregory, Pugh and if we have any sense we should chuck the whole lot on the Swindon table for Mr Ritchie. Gregory not even getting on bench, Tubbs is only appearing as sub and Mcquoid is fit again and Ritchie will replace Pugh.

Matt Ritchie not signing til January now according to Tom Mitchell so this could happen

Seriously, Dyer will not be joining you. He has of course had a nightmare with injuries but for the first time in a long time is injury free. He's involved in the Rangers squad and has had a couple of cameo appearances to date. He has looked exactly what he is, a class footballer who, if he can remain fit, will be an asset in the Premier league.

Dyer has been spotted in Bournemouth
Gabbidon would be a good signing but we need someone who can cross

Costa rumour already down the pan, he's for Portugues club Nacional

Dyer is always in Bournemouth the same as a host of prem players, Bournemouth is the nightclub capital of England and sandbanks down the road so that means nothing, I saw sylvan Distin and roger Johnson in klute on thurs and they are defo not signing!!!

Stoke Looking to bring in Bendtner, Charlie Adam, Michael Owen and also Steven Nzonzi, another left back and right back and left back is also needed.

The way ye going on mate looks like ye after a new team

If they are coming in who are leaving?

So from the 3-4 signings pulis and kemp say may happen, we're actually signing 7 with 2 left backs coming in. Your play station controller is getting cold!!!

2 left backs??

It's called improving the squad... so you could say that

Pulis is looking to bring in loanees as looks like no fringe players are exiting so there could be more than 4 if things go well

Your wrong mate

southampton close to signing curtis davies

NO there not.

Saints fans you seriously better hope that this is not true - not even close to PL quality or are you already settling for the inevitable ................... relegation!

I can deal with relegation if my ticket costs less, but unfortunately we will be in the prem for many years to come

Nothing inevitable about anything yet.....

We got Yoshida I'm not sure we'll go for a second centre back and if we do I imagine one far better than the likes of Davies.

From a saints fan, but Davies is a great player!

Yoshida who the hell is this guy no one has ever heard of him

No new LB or GK starting to worry about are season



30 Aug 2012 15:39:33
Richard Wright the 35 year old goalkeeper is having a medical at manchester city

What a lier this guy is he left pne because he did.nt want his kids to move school from suffolk, {Ed003's Note - Bizzare isnt it}

34 years old and this rumour was shockingly shown on the satelite channel to which I think hes money grabbing

The worst goalkeeper to ever play for England.

As a Shef Utd fan, even I think he is a bad player. God knows why has gone to the defending champions. He couldn't even manage 45 mins of a match for us and to think he was home sick at Preston. It is a mad mad world we live in!



30 Aug 2012 15:34:45
George Elokobi to sign for Ipswich Today. Guaranteed.

Rubbish he's playing tonite

What a joke is this the best we can do , league 1 here we come i just can't understand why we can't sign players , i'm ipswich through and through but lately i'm beginning 2 wonder, the club is a shambles bring on matt holland ,

Hes playing for wolves tonight

Yes please! Bring Matt Holland in as manager! :)



30 Aug 2012 15:07:39
Reading are set to offer Crystal Palace £5m and Simon Church on a season long loan for Wilfred Zaha

Really I doubt it. Adam is a hero at RFC and McDermott values him highly. I would say this could only happen if another striker came in. You never know!

£5M plus Church on a permanent then maybe


Not a chance. This won't be happening.

Leave me out.zaha could do better than join dis respect intended.

Zaha not prem quality

Zaha not prem quality

I'm sorry but what a misguided stupid remark. Who is "prem quality"? Mediocre players that have been in the premier league for years? Only players that play for the bigger teams?
There really isnt a massive gap between the top ten say in the championship and the bottom ten in the premier league.
Every team that comes up has to prove that they are "prem quality" by staying in the league. Would anyone of said That Grant Holt or John Ruddy were "prem quality" last year?
I personally would love to see someone like Zaha at Reading. I only saw him play the once at the end of last year. While he is still very young, he looks like he would give most full backs a nightmare! If he matures as you would hope and adds to his game, he could be a very attractive purchase.

Zaha is the only good player left at selhurst, we'll go down if he goes so not a chance!



30 Aug 2012 15:22:20
Is there any Southampton news about signing any Center backs necause getting a bit worried if Fonte or Hooiveld get injured.....

It looks as though Maya Yoshida will be signing from VVV venlo. Rhys williams from middlesborough was due to be signing but failed a medical due to ligament damage in his ankle. Curtis Davies of Birmingham could be on his way but it is unlikely

Funny you should ask, they have just signed Maya Yoshida, Japanese Olympic Captain

Yes, we just signed Maya Yoshida from VVV Venlo on a three year contract for about £2m.

Yoshida is in.

Cardiff City's Glen Turner but i hope we keep him.

We've just this moment been confirmed as signing Japanese national team captain centre back Maya Yoshida.

We've signed yoshida

Maya Yoshida deal is on the official site, so yes.

See the Official website your prayers are answered

Saints just got Maya Yoshida on a 3 year deal ... waiting to hear about the Kana-Biyik deal that is supposedly going through ... seen a couple of rumours about Curtis Davies being bought, but not convinced about that ... otherwise heard nothing else in centre backs

I'm a bit nervous if they aren't injured...

Yoshida is done, it's on the OS, Ramirez is said to be having a medical, although apparently LFC are back in it's only a loan to buy option which I don't think Bologna will want to listen to.

I was just thinking this. There are some rumours about Scott Dann but I don't think they are true.

Yoshida has signed on a 3 year deal from VVV-Venlo. {Ed003's Note -We know }

A little over 24hrs to go and still no Ramirez. Concerning now as earlier in the week all the talk was that this would be wrapped up wed or thurs latest. I still have a feeling we'll get him but I wish they'd hurry up as its making me edgy now. Mayuka & Yoshida sound good. Now for Ramirez, another CB and a LB!

Their has been talk of two big names signing on deadline day Ramirez only being one of them. I mean I doubt it but secretly I'm hoping they mean big.



30 Aug 2012 14:44:48
burnley to sign brett pitman for undisclosed fee and sign wigans callum mcmanaman on loan until january, charlie austin and keiron trippier going nowhere!

30 Aug 2012 14:18:10
Pompey expected to seal deals for Daniel Bogdanovic, Darel Russell and Johnny Ertl. Kieran Djilali leaves club by mutual consent.

Bogdanovic has already signed for a eastern. European club so your not really a reliable source then {Ed003's Note - I thought he played in Malta}

It's on the back page of the Portsmouth local paper. Pompey trying to get international clearance for Bogdanovic to play this weekend

Mentioned in the local paper. {Ed003's Note -Not doubting it just saying Malta is not an East European country}

Danny Rose Fleetwood to Wrexham season long loan, to be confirmed in a press conference at 3pm Friday



30 Aug 2012 14:14:06
bristol city will sign papa bouba diop on a pay as you play deal tomorrow. the free agent is eyed as a good replacement for khalifa cisse. source-board member.

the other news out of ashton gate is that after failing to lure dawson or monk, bristol city will look to give free agent andre amougou a deal to sort out the defence. this will conclude our business in this window

Why the hell do you think City need him!

Diop rumoured to be joining Cardiff City.
But you can have him.

Burnley fan here and my advice is that amougou is a good rock at the back but he can't pass a ball

Amougou did really well for us last season, if as rumoured he has been training with City for several weeks why has he not been signed before? Unfit or injured I wonder?

Papa bouba diop will sign. he is having a medical at the moment. this guys right.

Yes- this is happening



30 Aug 2012 14:02:22
Burnley to sign Adam Le Fondre on a season long loan and a view to a permanent if Reading stay up

What kind of deal is that? The season has only just started! The mind 'BOGGLES' If this is true??

I really doubt hed drop down to prem more likely to be simon church cause alfie has played in both premier leauge games this season and scored 1

30 Aug 2012 14:02:22
Burnley to sign Adam Le Fondre on a season long loan and a view to a permanent if Reading stay up

Ha no chance

No way le fondre has started for reading against stoke this season and is in mcdermotts plans.

Doubt this will happen not unless we sign a striker on loan ourselves but if we don't then Adam won't be going anywhere not until the January window opens anyway.

The only striker we will be loaning out is Church and that's only if we bring someone else in first.

I've said it before and i'll say it again - Le Fondre is a money making scholar! Hashtag millions of dollars is what he is all about. More chance of J-Robb going out on loan.



30 Aug 2012 13:54:51
Craig mackail smith to Norwich by Friday . Jamie

Doesn't he need to go to Leeds for a few days first?

No chance unless gus has a player lined up

Please God no... Tell me we have more ambition than this?

He wont leave unless we get a replacement

Not the quality we need at NCFC why send Vaughan out on loan and then buy a player that is not as good as.... dont make sense to me

I hope Brighton refuse the offer, we do not need a striker that has not even proved he can handle championship level, just not good enough for premiership level.

According to my sources Norwich have withdrawn their bid after not being allowed to talk to CMS.

Inaccurate, will not happen. Not even the player Norwich enquired about!!! That player was a midfielder and the club politely refused

Good news if it happens , someone who is prepared to run all match and never give anything up

^ yeah that's just what we need at the moment. "someone who is prepared to run all match and never give up". No that's definetly not what we need, we need or or two top quality proven goal scoters not someone running about for 90mins like a headless chicken. For god sake we're in the premier league not league one.

Good goals to game ratio.Very stong assist numbers.Likes to run at players.Full international.A bid stacks up particularly as a second striker. Would be a good partner for any topman.Pretty much fits the mould teamwise and hungry for prem.

"Inaccurate, will not happen. Not even the player Norwich enquired about!! That player was a midfielder and the club politely refused"
No, that is even more inaccurate. Hughton said himself over the weekend he is NOT buying any more defenders or midfielders.

Spot on,quality ,skill and flare.too late just left with the scrapings from the bowl now.Its like going to a wedding in a primark suit.

"good goals to games ratio". Yeah he's so prolific he managed eleven goals in all competitions for Brighton last season. That makes his goals:games ratio in the championship over1:4 which is very poor. I.e. he's been found out at a higher level

Wonder if Hughton politely asked for crofts back when he realised we're almost out of midfielders ;)



30 Aug 2012 13:32:10
Shrewsbury set to sign Graham Burke

on loan from Aston Villa till January Villa want him to gain first team experience

Shrewsbury need benson come on GT get him signed. 18 goals at least .

Why would Shrewsbury want a young inexperienced striker with NO league experience??



30 Aug 2012 13:24:03
Aston Villa are preparing a £3m bid for Swindon 'keeper Wes Foderingham, 21. Who has impressed since joining Swindon from Crystal Palace.

Very much doubt it, Foderingham is our first choice Keeper and after that we have a keeper who has never played a game for us. Doubt Di Canio is stupid enough to let him go.

3 mil for a league one keeper??? Yeah ok then

That's a lot of money but he could be worth a lot lot more in the future, doubt its true anyway.



30 Aug 2012 13:54:51
CMS off to Norwich from Brighton. Offer tabled.

Don't want, someone tell hughton

Offer rejected thank god

Oh i hope you're correct and it was rejected. hughton! don't go back in for him!!!!

I don't believe it. He does not play for Leeds

Lots of goal assists.Good historical scoring rate. Ideal second striker material.Offer of prem football should be enough to

Many Norwich fans will be pleased that he's not coming here.



30 Aug 2012 13:53:28
QPR to sign Totti on deadline day

Dont be silly, with Granero signing today, tomorrow will see M'Bia, Dawson, Kjaer, and possibly a striker...maybe Defoe if Spurs get Remy. that should be enough for any team to survive.

Mbia and 1 of Dawson or Kjear then maybe a striker if there's some movement out with Bothroyd and Dj. I can see 1 or both of Derry and Hll going probably to leeds

Didn't defoe just sign a new spurs contract?



30 Aug 2012 13:53:08
Bid made for Craig mackail smith at Brighton



30 Aug 2012 13:50:13
Stoke will sign Charlie Adam for £4m in the next 24 hours.
Huddersfield will sign Fraizer Campbell as a replacement for Jordan Rhodes.
Norwich have made a bid for Brighton's Craig Mackail - Smith

Hope so Fraser would be a good replacement

I know Fraizer well and haven't seen him down here or heard that he was coming to play for Huddersfield so think this is just a wild rumour, he will more likely move to another premier league side, will update if I hear more

Fraizer would be a fantastic sighning but gets too many injuries but would still want him

I frazier rumour is based purely on the knowledge that hes from hudders HTAFC FAN

Why afc i hate that why association football club



30 Aug 2012 13:48:28
Rory Fallon will be signing for Walsall on loan after falling down the pecking order at Aberdeen.



30 Aug 2012 13:47:46
Maicon to join Man City on deadline day for around £10m



30 Aug 2012 13:46:13
Albert Adomah will not be leaving this window despite interest from Swansea and Wigan.
Brett Pitman will be leaving for Palace or Burnley.
Monk will be joining Bristol City in the next day and maybe Dawson could be joining on a 3 month loan.

This sounds true for a change



30 Aug 2012 13:16:52
milijas has been released by mutual consent. wtf!?! solbakken made it clear milijas wasnt going to play and they let him go. top player could of got some money for him!



30 Aug 2012 13:12:31
Rotherham will complete the season long loan signing of Matt Tubbs tommorow with option for a permananent deal next summer. The other striker Evans is tracking is Paul Benson of Swindon after he angered Di Canio by siding with Caddis in the recent row. Rotherham have Pascal Chimbonda on trial and are still keen on Peterbroughs Mark Little. Revell is still interesting Preston who are keen to swap him for out of favour striker Ian Hume. Danny Schoefield has been subject to loan enquiries from Oxford, Southend and Bristol Rovers. Also Evans is keen to loan out young striker Alec Denton to gain experience and right back Dale Tongue to gain match fitness. Macclesfield are rumoured to be interested in the pair.

Chimbonda must be that french man driving a flashy car round town

Cant see you lot getting tubbs

Benson did not fall out with Di Canio, he just picked up a minor injury in training and has been rested for the last few games.

I can yesterday they said no to a loan move then late last night it was back on we will see come Friday



30 Aug 2012 13:25:13
coventry city to sign k.broadfoot who is wanting to link up with his old mate fleck at the city

He is after a move to Barnsley apparently

Apparently in talks with Ipswich and deal is close with Delaney being released they need cover



30 Aug 2012 13:17:57
lee martin could be leaving ipswich before the transfer window closes after turning down reduced terms on a new contract. cresswell stevenson delaney and murray could all leave before deadline

Murray is still wanted by Ipswich. I also doubt we would offer reduced terms to Martin as he has been one of our standout performers in recent times. Plus don't think Cresswell will be sold (especially to Villa) as they have already bought a LB from middlesbrough.



30 Aug 2012 13:17:13
Derby County will make a swoop for striker Matty Fryatt in January.



30 Aug 2012 12:56:54
Any Derby rumours Ed?

I wish...:)



30 Aug 2012 12:57:12
Hello lads.. Im a gooner and work in the IT department at Arsenal FC and all this rubbish about Cabaye already signed and on the Arsenal website is false! However, what I do know is that Arsenal are in talks to sign him on a permanent deal.. Nothing will be confirmed either way till late Friday evening! Cheers lads!



30 Aug 2012 12:45:27
Huddersfield are in talks with FC Twente regarding the Striker Glynor Plet, Town have offered 2m euros but Twente are holding out for 3m.

His stats look promising but how long would it take to adapt to championship.

Big, just what we want



30 Aug 2012 12:38:24
Christian Battochio is set to sign for watford in the coming days, it is not clear whether it will be on a season-long international loan or permanetly



30 Aug 2012 12:34:47
Iain Hume is in talks with Doncaster after the board give Rovers extra funds to buy players before tomorrow's deadline

Just signed till jan! Pne fan



30 Aug 2012 12:28:27
West Brom to sign Julian Speroni and Martin Olsson on deadline day

Speroni is a goalkeeper so unless he is also a good left back in his spare time it wont happen.

Its Popov on loan for the season from Dynamo Kiev.Was off to Sjoke but he couldnt get a work permit.That was only nine days ago so not sure how we managed to sign him.



30 Aug 2012 12:26:57
Norrwich have put in a bid for Craig Mackail-Smith.Surely we can do better. Hugely underwhelming. #OTBC

Energy levels not in dispute, but can't control a ball 1st time to save his life, premiership CH's will eat him for breakfast. Stated last year when we bid for him he would not cut it at premiership level and stated that Brighton had been sold a pup by Barry Fry's Hype about all the clubs chasing him, Brighton will snap our arm off to sell him if we have offered anything like what they paid for him £2.5M, frankly my estimation of Chris Houghton has taken a huge downer and we are relegation certs if that is the best forward we can get in during the transfer window, hate to say it but I expect him to be a complete flop at premiership level.
Loaning Vaughan was crazy and replacing him with CMS strikes me as madness and shows that the NCFC board are not grasping that if we were able to stay in premiership another season the riches on offer go up another £25M per club, instead it looks like another few years in the wilderness of the championship.
A very unhappy canaries fan

Don't need!

We finally have a bit of cash to spend....and are looking at CMS!! We cant find anyone else?

Last season he was poor and not worth anywhere near 2.5 mil but so far this season he has been class and 100x times the player he was and will be glad to keep hold of him

I'd take Frazier Campbell over him any day of the week. At least he has electric pace and despite his record, if he can stay fit I think he'll score goals in prem. Also he'll bag you a goal from nowhere as Norwich found out last year to our cost.

Defeiently going down surrender by the board rubbish manager and average championship players we should be looking at better players than this what happened to biglia abellaque and guietti

I was told to expect a big name striker to arrive before the transfer window closes. I didn't think a "big" name equals a "long" name -- someone's having a laugh. He hasn't cut it in the championship so someone please tell me why he's up to the EPL. Anyone please tell me I'm wrong........I need someone to tell me I'm wrong.



30 Aug 2012 12:25:00
Middlesbrough are set to replace Joe Bennett with the signing of Hoffenheim defender Edson Braafheid in a loan deal that could see the Dutch international join in January permanently.

That guy is a total bombscare you would be better of playing with 10 men

I suppose that link came from the fact that he was under Mogga at Celtic for a while then

The guy is a waste of space good luck with him!!

Boro need to spend.George Friend is a good adition but if he gets injured we dont have a Replacement. left back is a problem now

Have the home grown players done anything since leaveing boro.... dont realli so good money i say

If this is True we need to give him a chance before we make Decision heplayed in the World cup final so must be something good about him

If true this is a good deal this guy has played for Holland 10 times he must be decent



30 Aug 2012 12:22:12
Italy Under-20 and Udinese midfielder Cristian Battocchio will join Watford on a loan deal but the difference to the others is an option to buy at the end of his loan deal



30 Aug 2012 12:20:47
Coventry are set to appoint Oldham manager Paul Dickov as their new manager and have given the go ahead for some new signings.
Dickov is wanting a defender, two midfielders and two attackers as he also braces for some of the higher earners leaving.
The defender is Charlton player Cedric Evina. The left back is only 20 and has been made available for a loan until January from the Championship newcomers.
The two midfielders are from the Premier League. West Brom player Sam Mantom and Stoke midfielder Matthew Lund are both set to sign on loan until January but can both be made longer.
The first striker is set to be another loan deal. Man City youngster Luca Scapuzzi, who can play either up front or in the attacking hole, will sign on loan until the new year but a permanent deal could be on the horizon.
The second forward coming in is a permanent deal for Oldham player Robbie Simpson. Dickov is set to raid his former club by brining in the former non league player Simpson, who also used to be a Coventry player.

What a load of rubbish.

Bit hard for matty lund to sign seeing as he is at bristol rovers on loan till jan

Very very...............UNLIKELY!!
Fantasy and I would suggest totally INCORRECT.
Coventry could NOT afford the deals listed here on top of the 7no new signings already made.

1. This a load of rubbish (even though i want Dickov to leave Latics) 2. All the players he is 'apparently' trying to sign when he goes to Coventry (which he won't) are all former Latics/Latics players, which doesn't make much sense because they're all at bigger better clubs.

Oldham fan- I think this is probably completely rubbish but I really want it to be true...Dicov is tactically nieve and as for Simpson he spends most of his time on the ground trying to get fouls

Matthew lund from stoke has alrady gone out on loan to bristol Rovers

To all the supporters who have been banging on about the manager and captain furman going well it now looks on the cards hardly a step backwards coventry who will probably win the league and furman who apparently cant play called up for international duty enough said

Please do not let us sign Paul Dickov! Garbage! Dennis Wise wouldn't be bad, but like you say, SISU will choose the cheapest option which is likely to be Richard Shaw, at least he's got some passion for the club

Charlton fan. We only have 2 left backs. One of them is Evina so no way are we letting him go out on loan as that would mean no cover.

Please be true please please then oldham can get Ian dowie and move the club forward.

Oldham chairman quoted as saying "Complete nonsense"......dont want Dickov anyway!

Scapuzzi is a free agent as he was release from city this year, dont see simpson leaving as he just sign even if he is fustrated at the lack of service

Please be true please please then oldham can get Ian dowie and move the club forward.
I think you need to replace the word forwards with backwards if your including Dowie in that sentence.

31 Aug 2012 11:57:06
The manager-out gang are back (yawn). This time it's Dickov getting the grief (and his daughter on twitter apparently-pathetic). Just go and support City, leave us loyal fans to get behind the team and manager.

Well said, Dickov not going anywhere, and as for Furman bashers he will soon be playing against BRAZIL for his country so he can't be as poor as some fans think.

Ian dowie got us to the playoffs with crowds nearly double to the crowds that watch PDs the results,the quality of the football, the player fitness levels,the goals scored and the overall entertainment and a Dowie team wins hands down.

The manager out gang have voted with there feet.with home crowds of 3500 there wont be many fans left. If it continues to drop the club disappears its a simple as that.

The go and support city statement achieves nothing it just encourages more fans to leave.the fan base is dwindling so much because the entertainment isn't there and neither are the points.

Another head in the sand go and support city fan.if it carries on you will have a stand to share with tumble weed.think of the bigger picture low crowds mean less finance and ultimately administration or liquidation.

Hopefull the freak goal and win will encourage Coventry to take PD.still no league goals from another poor PD strike force.

Ian dowie got us to the playoffs with crowds nearly double to the crowds that watch PDs the results,the quality of the football, the player fitness levels,the goals scored and the overall entertainment and a Dowie team wins hands down.
Well speaking as a Charlton fan (I made the backwards comment) he managed to destroy 12 years of hard work that Curbishley had put together in just one summer. It was because of him we went into debt by signing amazing flops like Faye and Toare for rip off prices. It has taken us 6 years to work our back to the CCC and he started our demise. He should never be allowed near a football club again!!!!

PD hasnt had any resources close to what dowie had, he's a good up and coming manager and what mistakes he makes he puts right, bad start but this is the best team he's made and our football is improving all the time, this will be a good season and better clubs than dodgy coventry will want him, ktf!

Charlton what a was the club themselves that started their demise they thought Curbishley wasn't good enough they thought they should be in the champions league.......dreamers the lot of them.



30 Aug 2012 10:32:31
Gillingham to sign Matt Bloomfield from Wycombe Wanderers with a fee and Danny Jackman going the other way!

Another rumour going around is Sam Saunders for a fee.

We wouldnt do that firstly jackman is happy at gills and supports the club, secondly jackman is playing regular football, thirdly jackman would play a bigger role with him being able to play anywhere in midfield and both wingbacks



30 Aug 2012 12:13:40
West Ham


miralem sulejmani (Ajax)
Chris Solly (Charlton)
Also a tall striker unlikely to be Andy Carroll but he is first choice more likely a loan move for bendtner or k.Jones
Maybe a 4th cb and also maybe a major shock u turn for robert green but it is very unlikely

Maynard (Leeds)

A few younger players to be loaned out but more likely in early september expect r.hall Danny potts George moncur etc to be loaned out to lower leagues

WEST HAM FANS YOU ARE NOT GETTING SOLLY!! He has already stated that he has no intentions of leaving Charlton

Solly is to short for big sam style of hooooof ball. Plus the deal is a myth so it won't be happening anyway.

How will you get these guys when your club say there is no more money available?

Maynard has sighned for cardiff

Well said my friend

When will West Ham be paying the £10m they owe to Sheff United, before or after they buy all these players?



30 Aug 2012 10:30:56
darren ward will move to swindon on loan as swindon cannot afford his wages this will become permanant in january if he does well swindon will pay him 3 grand a week with millwall paying the rest of his wages

Will happen 4sure!

Has just happened - Good luck Wardy, a gent and still a good player at League 1 level despite his age. Swindon fans - he'll do a job for you.

Nothing to do with his wages!£ it's a loan till Jan to see if it works out for both paries!



30 Aug 2012 12:11:40
George Boyd and Paul Taylor on their way to Brighton after their deal with Ipswich has fallen through?

Leeds or Brighton

Not sure about this one dont think Noone will be replaced have two others like him besides gus nver plays two wingers together will stay with Buckley and lua lua reckon the Bennett deal could happen if CMS and that is correct about Norwich wanting him CMS plus cash Bennett the other way.

Town after holt from norwich

Craig no one has signed a 3year contract at Cardiff. He was a great player



30 Aug 2012 12:10:48
Carlisle are set to sign a centre-back on loan as Danny Livesey is out for about 3 weeks. Source: News & Star.



30 Aug 2012 12:08:21
Three players are set to leave Barnsley in the next few days as Keith Hill looks to make space in his squad for new incomings.
David Gonzalez, who was only on non contract terms, will join Aberdeen on a deal until January.
Defender Lee Collins is set to leave on loan to Port Vale until January with a view to a permanent deal. Collins only signed in the summer from Vale but has found opportunities limited.
Chris Dagnall is also set to leave. Former club Scunthorpe have had a bid accepted in a loan deal until the new year. The former Rochdale star is wanting more regular football and wants to help out struggling United.
Hill is also close to bringing in a defender as well as another forward.
The defender is England under 21 international Craig Dawson. The former Radcliffe Borough player is wanted by a number of Championship clubs but is keen to sign on at Oakwell until the end of the season. Albion will have a recall clause back during the January transfer window.
The striker is thought to be long term target Chris O'Grady. The Sheffield Wednesday attacker is keen on a stay at Hillsborough but could move across South Yorkshire to get more regular football.

Dagnall is in the 1st team squad so cant see it and OGrady is flying with the fowls so cant see that either IMO

Please forget this nonsense about Dawson. He is regularly in the squad at WBA.
We could only afford Paul O¬īGrady nefer mind Chris.

Would like us to sign ogrady but cant see it

I have no idea if the Dawson rumour is true but just because he's in the WBA first team squad means nothing
Elmohamady was in Sunderlands first team squad but has just gone on loan to Hull
I'm sure seeing as he's young they want him to play every week and develop than just watch him warm up the bench

Dagnall has been performing superbly recently so I can't see why we'd want to offload him



30 Aug 2012 12:05:44
Burnley to sign Readings Simon Church on a season long Loan to cover for injured Danny Ings

He's a great player

Not bad if wages ok

That's more like it. I can this happening and you clarets will get yourselves a natural striker in Churchy, he's a good lad.



30 Aug 2012 12:02:42
Pompey defender Sam Magri in talks to join QPR. Will undergo medical later this afternoon

Your dead right



30 Aug 2012 12:00:57
Stoke City to try and sign Lewis McGugan from Nottingham Forest after John Rudge he was found watching him play against wigan

McGugan didnt play against Wigan

He didn't play against wigan

He didn't play against Wigan!

Well seeing as he didn't even make the bench against Wigan I think we can discount this one

Mcgugen did not play against wigan as he was carrying a slight knock lol
try again lol

Lewis didnt play against Wigan,try again

Just one thing wrong with this - McGugan did not play against Wigan, was not even in the squad. Otherwise, an impressive prediction.

From the above comments I assume he did not play against Wigan. however when I have seen him play for Forest he does seem a decent player and one worth a longer look. The problem is I think he is a midfield player and Stoke have about 10 already

I can confirm that stoke was wathing mcgugan on the night we played wigan! they sent a scout to sit in the stands to get a close look and details of his ''prem'' hairdo to model their players on



30 Aug 2012 11:54:46
Barnsley are after Oliver Monguel Ex Fulham player who is out of contract

Dimitar Berbatov undergoing a medical at Fulham according to Martin Jol. What a signing that would be for us!

Never heard of him...

Who? I'm sure that is brilliant news for Barnsley fans



30 Aug 2012 11:44:07
Huddersfield to sign Paul Gallagher from Leicester to replace Jordan Rhodes

You can have him hes awful and hes no way near as good as Rhodes so good luck with that one

Underwhelming choice of replacement if true, Should go for Russell from Dundee U or Goodwillie from Blackburn

Leave Gallagher where he is, haven`t we had enough disappointment for one day......

Madine to have medical tomorrow in a 1.3 million deal to town



30 Aug 2012 11:36:40
Brighton's Romain Vincelot and Matt Sparrow will be leaving the club before 11pm tomorrow.

Reckon if clubs have come in for these two gus would let them go going to be fringe players this season and the cash is gonna help fund an exspensive striker coming in

I can deal with that

On the fringe? They don't even have squad numbers.



30 Aug 2012 11:35:39
Pompey are to make a double swoop for Johnny Ertl and Darel Russell.



30 Aug 2012 11:18:20
Liverpool to sign Darren Bent on deadline day which will see Andy Carroll move in the opposite direction

Could happen I suppose

Carrol gone to west ham for a year

Andy Carroll has joined west ham on a 1 year loan with a option to buy at the end. The fee is supposed to be around 17 million pounds.



30 Aug 2012 11:17:39
just to confirm crystal palace are still after george boyd and paul taylor + a loan deal for lucas piazon are'nt they?

Palace fans would love Boyd to come but no indication the manager would! No idea about Taylor, CP play cards close to their chest

Palace Fan

Neither of them will come to palace. If palace do sign someone it will be someone who wont make any difference

Paul taylor signed for ipswich



30 Aug 2012 11:05:19
Deadline day signings

Clint Dempsey- Liverpool- £8.7 million
Curtis Davies- Southampton- £3 million
Kaka- Manchester United- Season loan
Ryan Stevenson- Motherwell- £500,000
George Boyd- Ipswich- £1 million
Paul Taylor- Ipswich- £750,000
DJ Campbell- Blackpool- £800,000
Jonny Russell- Huddersfield- £2 million
Jay Bothroyd- Brighton- £700,000
Kenwyne Jones- Wolves- Season long loan
Moussa Dembele- Tottenham- £15 million
Jamie Murphy- Wigan- £2 million
Stephen Dobbie- Blackpool- £1.2 million
Pablo Hernandez- Swansea- £6.5 million

There will be more

Jonny Russell - £ this the Jonny Russell who Dundee value at £1.3m & Huddersfield value at under £1m?!? Yes £2m sounds a fair deal for all.

Agent49 lmao

These four i feel would be great signings for the club, the others mentioned no thanks

Saints not in for Davies.


Only thing ye got right mate is there will be more

Boyd and Taylor have rejected personal terms at Ipswich. Blackpool can't afford DJ Campbell's wages

Where are Motherwell getting £500,000 from?

Bet Gus would love to buy Jay Bothroyd for 700.000 would like him down here mobile quick scores goals at this level good buy gus'es sort of player but QPR not gonna have 700 thou would get shoot not in sparkys plans

Well 2 are wrong already as George Boyd and Paul Taylor have both failed to agree terms with Ipswich and the deal is dead in the water

Dembele is hardly deadline day. in fact the move was completed before you posted this. therefore i am ignoring everything you have posted.

Boyd and taylor already turned Ipswich down. They must be holding for an offer from Blackpool

What about Nicky Maynard to Cardiff City?

Blackpool agreed a 300,000 pound deal so this is rubbish then

At that price why are saints not in for Dempsey? Proven at premier league standard and is always good for a goal!

Funny Stevenson leaving by mutual agreement

Bothroyd hasnt signed yet he is having a medical but he has agreed a salary but nobody knows it

Blackpool cant afford DJs wage? Dont give up your day job Peter kay! That actual truth is we dont want to pay his wage as his demands dont fit the rest of the squads. We Aint known as the donkey lashers anymore its the wage slashers. UTMP

I really want kenwyne to go 2 wolves but i think wages are a problem

Saints Are in for Curtis, I've heard this rumour from so many sources. I really don't get why saints fans keep saying we arnt in for him :S

Boothroyd has signed for sheff wed. He's not very good either (didn't want to swear)



30 Aug 2012 10:58:26
Watford set to announce 2 more loans from udinese in the coming days
Cristian Battochio- deep lying playmaker
Jean Alain Fanchone- LB

How many loan players can a team have on the pitch? isn't there some limit?

You're allowed as many international loans as you want, but I don't know if there's a limit on how many are allowed in the matchday squad.

Apparently international loans are regarded as transfers to the fa, so I think we can play as many as we want

All international loans are considered 'temporary tranfsers' there dont count- only allowed 5 domestic loans

Your a loud 5 to play in a match day squad

You can play as many as you wish, all 11 if you want. The 5 rule does not apply. International loans are not counted as loans but are treated as transfers.



30 Aug 2012 10:53:02
Middlesbrough will not be signing anyone before the transfer deadline.

Swansea have cooled their interest in signing Emnes as they will not match Boro's £6M valuation.

Mowbray is also not keen on signing Dobbie as his wages would be too high.

Boro will keep the money received from the Bennett sale and use it on loan deals if the squad starts to suffer from injuries later in the season.

Scott McDonald could be loaned back to Celtic and if that does happen then maybe will make a move for another striker.

Agent 007.5

The only thing is Mowbray has said he wants to use the Bennet money quickley. Also now Sinclair is going to City maybe Emnes back on? I expect to see 2 more signings. 1 def 1 att midf or forwd

Typical Boro. Sell your home grown players con the cheap and not invest in any quality for the team. What message does that send out to our other home grown players and to other teams. We did that in the 80's with Johnston, Hodgson, 90's with Pally, Rippers, Cooper and in the noughties with Woodgate, Downing, Johnson, Cattermole. Are we a selling club again I ask myself??We are crying out for a striker who will guarantee 20 goals and a right winger. Very disapointed in boro unless mogga pulls a rabbit out of the hat before tomorrow night. Will watch with interest as our season depends on it.

Yes mate we are a selling club web the money is right! I dunno if uv noticed over the years that gibbo is not as rich as he was n boro is not a pl club anymore! If u are a boro fan can I ask u...... How are we going to fund a new striker 'we are crying out for"?? The answer is SELLING!! Bet u don't even go to the games coz if u did u would actually know something about the wheeling for dealing position boro are in n 4MIL for Bennett that's fantastic business for the boro. Mogga knows what he's doing mate who are we to say he's wrong?

Even 4m isn't enough too sign a quality champ'ship striker but it's all we've had all summer and mogga has signed some amazing players already with nothing , I wonder what he can do with that if he can pull of signings like woodgate & leadbitter with notin

I am a boro supporter. There are other ways to raise money from selling mcmanus, mcdonald, arca. Although I agree they will not raise 4million. Surely money raised would have paid for a loan fee for someone like Bothyroyd a proven quality performer at this level who would do a great job for us!!!. I am just glad Rhys Williams is till here, quality player!!!



30 Aug 2012 10:44:47
alessandro del piero to sign for Celtic.

31 Aug 2012 14:14:26
Looks like Del Piero has snubbed Celtic for Sydney FC.



30 Aug 2012 10:10:02
Ed just seen kaka arrive at heathrow with a large enterprise to met by someone and chauffeured away. Any idea why's he's in the uk 2 days before the tw shuts? {Ed001's Note - he visits the UK regularly, seeing him coming here is no big deal, his mother and himself are involved with a church in London.}



30 Aug 2012 10:03:57
Lot of comings and GOINGS at Brighton in next 36 hours .....
One going, Vicente to Elche CF. Club have conceded due to family situation. Contract terminated no fee ..... source - reliable within club

This one is difficult to believe his agent could get him back to spain if this was true

Absolute bull

Could see this happening. Rumour seems accurate about the comings and goings. Vicente not really figured this season so assume best for all parties

Oh perlease! Bitter Palace fans posting again! Vicente is HAPPY here! He has got a house here with his wife and children, living close to very good friend, Bruno. As for not featured much this season? You never heard of niggling injuries?



30 Aug 2012 10:00:37
After turning down the chance to sign for Ipswitch yesterday Boyd is now a target for Brighton to replace Noone and to link up with his old pal Mackail-Smith at the Amex.

Pure rubbish. Makail Smith having medical at Norwich as we speak.

Mac Smith going to Norwich!

George Boyd is a Palace fan so the Amex is the last place that he would want to play !!

He only way CMS goes is if Bennett comes the other way

CMS has not had a medical boyd is unlikely to join brighton and benno is not coming back

Why would cms go if we are trying to get a another striker plus we rejected a 3 million pound deal



30 Aug 2012 09:57:53
Sunderland striker Frazier Campbell is to sign for Huddersfield on season loan with a view to permanant move next year. Town also look favorites to have Johnny Russell and Gary Mackey Steven join the Terriers from Dundee Utd - though David Goodwillie is said to be part of Rhodes deal. Life after Jordan could be interesting!!

You are living in dream land. Never going to happen.

Frazier yes, Russell maybe, Mackey Steven out for weeks after operation on his knee this week. Goodwillie, no thanks.

It can't be part of the deal as the deal is already done so would've been confirmed by the clubs when confirming rhodes' departure.

The King is dead, long live the king, my daughter has just taken down her jordan rhodes poster & put it under her bed next to her Anthony Pilkington poster & my Mark Lillis one. Mr Hoyle please spend your £8m wisely & tomorrow, the Town fans trust you but we need & deserve clarity on the Jordan situation....Johnny Russell & GMS please & maybe Quinn fom Sheff Utd.

GMS just had knee surgery he ain't comin' to Town or going anywhere else for that matter, don't need Quinn just quality front men to replace Mr Rhodes



30 Aug 2012 09:54:30
After Christian Benteke refused to train with Genk in an attempt to push through a dream move to Aston Villa.
Genk will be willing to accept an offer of around £7m rather than the £10m figure which was first quoted for the young powerful striker.

He is going to Fulham



30 Aug 2012 09:50:17
Blackburn striker David Goodwillie is to be included as makeweight in Jordan Rhodes deal with Huddersfield 7.5m upfront & Goodwillie as well as add ons of around 2.5m (depending on promotion - goals scored etc)

Rubbish, 4.5 million up front with the rest on if's and but's and maybe's. Source Huddersfield local paper

Speaking of david goodwillie i seem to remember when he was transfered from dundee there was some trouble with late payement of part of the fee. lets hope that doesnt happen with any part of the 8 mill.

Been confirmed from various sources now that the up front fee is £8M with between £1.5-2M in add-ons

Huddersfield local paper reported a fee of 8mill,no down payment+add-ons.



30 Aug 2012 09:45:29
David Goodwillie to be part of deal for Jordan Rhodes



30 Aug 2012 09:44:42
Hull defender Liam Cooper is being pursued by Pompey as the transfer window nears its end.

Safc fan here,ive heard elmo has signed 4 u for a year loan,i think he will be fantastic in your div,he has pace to burn,also i wish you the best 4 the season,no matter what most safc fans have said about brucey,i still believe hes a top man and a top manager,cheers.tk73

Mckenna going back to Preston were he belongs!

Are you kidding? McKenna is 35 next month and is still one of our most consistent performers and is always fit to play, do your research and actually watch the games!



30 Aug 2012 09:39:15
Bournemouth midfielder Steven Gregory is being linked with a loan move to Southend.

Personally it would be good for him but he need him at the moment
Partington and o kane-will usually play
Hughes and molesley-pants
So I would keep him for a month then loan him till January
He deserves a better club than Southend to go out on loan



30 Aug 2012 09:36:23
Fraizer Campbell to sign for Huddersfield as replacement for Jordan Rhodes who has left for Blackburn. Fraizer is from Huddersfield and still lives there and doesn't appear to be in Sunderlands plans after the purchase of Fletcher.

He still lives in Huddersfield? So he drives over 2 hours every day for training there and back? Doubt it.

I don't know why you doubt that. Numerous footballers make daily journeys of similar duration!

He def still lives in hudds and is meeting with town tonight

I can confirm that Fraizer Campbell does indeed still live in Huddersfield- as he lives next door to my Grandmother.
(Source- my own eyes)

I can assure that 1) he lives in the newcastle/Sunderland area and 2) he will definitely not be moving to town. From a rather trustworthy source.

Well I'm sorry but I know for a FACT that he lives in Huddersfield. He is from the town and can be spotted in the town centre on a regular basis, in fact saw him only the other day in sainsburys

His parents still live in Huddersfield, he visits very often as I see him once a week but he does have a place up north too for training and games etc



30 Aug 2012 09:14:42
My sources in San Jose (California) tell me that a deal is being finished up between Arsenal and MLS for an October-to-February loan of in-form Chris Wondolowski. The only thing that Arsenal are waiting on is the sale of Park Chu Young and Bendtner, and they feel that Wondolowski is good competition to Chamakh as Giroud's backup.



30 Aug 2012 09:04:39
York City still expected to sign 1 more cb and 1 more st both expected to be byron anthony and danny wright



30 Aug 2012 08:35:14
Bradford city to sign Tom tomtwto from Carlisle united before the transfer Market shuts

Source? pp has confirmed no activity before deadline.



30 aug 2012 08:30:24
any bristol city news!

According to Sky Sports Burnley considering a move for Pitman



30 Aug 2012 08:22:23
David mcgoldrick from notts forest is in talks with town wtf no replacement for rhodes if you ask me!

If you ask 20000 forest fans we know he's no replacement for Rhodes.

Who are NOTTS forest ?..and you can have him !

Most Forest fans would pay Terriers themselves to get shot - would be great, but seriously doubt this is gonna happen



30 Aug 2012 08:22:07
Ipswich hope to sign kirk broad foot from G.Rangers today,talks are ongoing.Posh pair were asking for too much money to sign so town showed them the door.



30 Aug 2012 08:22:00
samsunders is not happy at brentford uwe had a pop at him about his form martin allen taking him on alone .and steven hunt coming on lone

Complete nonsense, why would he go to a league two side, when he is at a top league one team. Come on, at least try a bit harder.

Top league one side? Thought he played for Brentford!



30 Aug 2012 08:17:52
Gavin Williams on his way out of Yeovil Town, and will likely be replaced by an acadamy loanee from one of the premier clubs.

Where u here this ?? i dnt think its true he will be a big player for us when he back from injury

This is partly true there giving him till January to see if he can keep fit but Gary has said that no more signings will be made and he will only dip into loan Market if necessary

Gavin Williams will not be leaving yeovil, as I am friend of his..Sweear down I am, and he's told me he planns to finnish his career at yeovil.

He may think that but yeovil aren't prepared to waste wages on a player who is constantly injured, I've met him a couple a times and he's a top bloke but he never plays nowadays

Why would we sell him and that would leave us with like 15 contracted players?

Never plays? He is deservedly a higher earner and does play regularly for us. Every player gets injuries and just because he has mised the first 5 or 6 games does not translate as a player on his way out of the club... Think how long we stuck with Marc Bircham!



30 Aug 2012 07:56:29
Huddersfield will make a double swoop for Southamptons Dean Hammond and Billy Sharpe fo a combined fee of 4 million, reliable source, although Sharpes wage demands may be a problem.

Town won't be spending 4 million on anyone!!

Im a saints fan and deano would be a great signing for you, he is god player at championship level but not good enough to break nto our prem squad, sharp i feel wont get a look in now we have signed mayuko and rodrigue this window, and he will guarenteee you 20 goals a season.

Hammond wouldn't leave Southampton I don't think, but Sharp could be a minute possibility (Hope so anyway)

I think we should keep Sharp. He was on fire in pre-season

I would say the other way around , hammond has almost zero chance to play this year whilst billy seems settled and deperate to score in the premier league

Can see Hammond being let go. Sharp still has something to give, he was our best striker in pre-season. I really hope he gets given a chance in the prem. He would be a great signing for any championship club, I think he can hold his own in the prem too.


Hammond perhaps as he won't get many starts in the PL. Sharp? No chance!

I could see Hammond going, and he would be a good signing. Can't see sharp going just yet though.

You won't be getting Sharp he will be getting a look in or at least I really hope so.



30 Aug 2012 07:52:23
fraizer campbell to fulham
loric remy to spurs
defoe to sunderland
dempsey to liverpool
joe cole to west ham

Michel Bastos would be a good move.

Heard nothing just an idea.

Richardson to Fulham
Berbatov to Fulham
Chadli to Fulham
Huddlestone to Fulham
Jenas to Fulham

Dempsey might stay.

Thats all rubbish
berbatov is having a medical with fulham, so we wont be talking to campbell.

Frazier Campbell won't be at fulham, berbatov is having a medical now

Defoe has just signed a new contract with spurs

Defoe has just signed a new contract...



30 Aug 2012 07:30:20
Sammy Ameobi to Norwich on a season Loan CHG
long loan CH knows him well Norwich need fire power

Can't see it. looking for a goalscorer who will provide lots of goals, as well as no more loan signings, leaves norwich in a bit of a funk if he gets called back/and for next season.

I've heard CMS could be joining us...hope not, but apparently we're preparing a bid for him :(



30 Aug 2012 07:28:02
Arsenal will make a last ditch bid for Rennes star Yann M'Vila.



30 Aug 2012 07:24:20
99% confirmed that a premier league striker will be annonced to sign for the albion in the next 24 hours following craig noones departure to cardiff citt.

Its Shola Ameobi...

If he is a PL striker why is he signing for Brighton? Must be a Championship striker who didn't make the step up - Nicky Maynard by any chance?

Maynard is off to Cardiff !

Maynard fee agreed with cardiff

Jay Bothroyd...



30 Aug 2012 04:24:28
I read somewhere on here that Harry Kewell was set to sign for Boro last night? Ed Have you heard anything about where Kewell will be playing? Being an Englishaussieman im interested :) {Ed001's Note - I haven't heard a thing about anyone being interested, he has been round half the training grounds in the north west as well! He needs to lower his sites.}

I heard Swindon were but I think that's just rumours

Is that to be taken literally - should he try clubs in the south? :P {Ed001's Note - I believe there is a personal reason he wants to stay in the North West, hence going round there. I might be getting mixed up, because this is a hectic time of year for me and I am a bit frazzled, but I think it is something to do with his missus or her family. So he needs or wants to be nearby.}

Mother in law sick that's why he is back in the nth of england..... he was on a $2mil contract at melbourne and knocked back 3 and 4mil deals with middle east and asia to come back to the rubbish hole of north england for family reasons...... he earns about $1mil a year in sponsors in Australia so money to play footy isn't an issue



30 Aug 2012 04:22:22
huddlestone deal looks highly unlikely after tottenham have refused a return clause



30 Aug 2012 02:48:54
some Players in for Hull city on deadline day
Guy Moussi-500k Nottingham Forest
David Myler-Loan
Mohammed Elmohammedy-Loan vtp
James Coppinger-loan vtp
Nick Powell-loan
Fedrico Mechada

Liam Cooper-Scunthorpe loan
Paul Mcshane-Barnsley loan
Seyi Olly-Huddersifield loan
Aaron Mclean -Brighton 500k

Can see it happening (not sure about mechada and Powell though) all would be good signings

Your dreaming if you think Moussi is going

What does loan vtp mean {Ed001's Note - view to permanent deal.}

Why are barnsley always linked with mcshane just cos we had him on loan once

That's just not going to happen! We may get 2/3 out of that list. Surely Mclean won't go anywhere after his midweek performance either

Guy Moussi? You wish!!

Mclean will not be going - him and Simpson are the only two who have found the net so far

Mclean will not be going - him and Simpson are the only two who have found the net so far

Would be happy with Mclean going but for more than 500k and with us getting Fraizer Campbell back

Powell yes, Meyler yes, Coppinger yer, Elmore already here. Nobody going out permanently

Bruce is looking to sign 4 more apparantly (including elmohamady)



30 Aug 2012 02:00:31
According to the Daily Mirror, Saints are looking at making a 6 million pound bid for MiddlesBrough CB/CDM/RB Rhys Williams.

I'm very excited by this announcement. I'm an aussie, and can vouch for the fact he's a quality player, and highly versatile. Definitely EPL quality, and has solid international experience

Saint T from Australia

Feel free to give us 8m+ cos he has recently signed a 4 and a half year deal so has 4 years left to run. He is our prized asset. He is called Rhys 'Rolls Royce' Williams for a reason.

Don't think Williams will be going anywhere, he's out for at least 6 wks and possibly Xmas, depending on the extent of ankle ligament damage suffered against gillingham in midweek.

Don't know where you Aussies get you're information from but Williams got injured against Gillingham and will be out for months, so I highly doubt they will.

Absolutely no chance Boro will sell Rhys Williams. He is our club captain, he has just signed a new contract and stated that he loves the club and the area.

Plus he is now injured and looks like he will be out until christmas so I doubt Southampton would sign him now either.

I would think not as Rolls Reece is likely to be out for quite a while injured. Maybe even up to Xmas.

Hes out for 6 weeks with ankle ligament damage, youre right though quality player (boro fan)

He's recently signed a new contract and been given the captaincy. I would be very surprised at this with Mowbray building his team around him. Bad news that he might be out until Christmas injured.

He's going to be out for months after picking up an injury on Tuesday, so highly doubt he will pass the medical. Rhys Williams was named captain by Mowbray and he loves Boro far too much to go to another average team.

He's injured. out for months

Hes a class act is rhys williams, however has just picked an terrible injury on tuesday night, probably out untill till christmas, besides the injury going to southampton wouldnt be a great step up in his career anyway.

Rhys Williams is currently injured. Mowbray will not sell him after losing bennett and maybe emnes. Rhys only signed a long term contract recently and will not leaving to join Saints, so please jog on!!!!!!

He damaged his ankle ligaments against Gillingham on Tuesday night, out for a while, so I doubt its true

Boro won't and dont need to sell and Rhys doesn't want to go. Rumour Ended

He is going no where til jan and maybe then for 10 mil

Rhys is the boro captain this year and said his dream is to get middlesbrough promotion and be the captain.No chance he will go to saints.

Not only is Rhys middlesbroughs boro captain n out for at the very least of 6wks but boro also mocked back a 7mil bid from Bolton when he only had 11months remaining on his contract so if he did go it'd be for way higher than 6 as he is tied down for 4yr n is very much moggas favourite player at the boro. Also not to mention he couldn't pass a medical with a broken ankle



30 Aug 2012 01:47:59
Huddersfield are to use the jordan rhodes money on either- Johnny Russell
Gary Mackay-Steven
Charlie Austin
DJ Campbell
Fraizer Campbell

Would not want austin on his performance vs Town Lynch had him in his back pocket

D j Campbell too old barely scored (1 goal) for QPR, remember Rhodes transfer value is half add-ons based on BRFC being promoted at the expense of us trying to get 6 points from them. No money is enough money!

Gallager from Leicester a possibility

After seeing Austin at Huddersfield i dont think we would need him, he played absolutely awfull...

GMS is injured for the next six weeks after having knee surgery so can't see anyone wanting to buy him this window at least.

Boyd and Taylor turn down Ipswich, are they coming to Huddersfield?



30 Aug 2012 01:44:29
Stoke City Transfer Rumours
Charlie Adam - Liverpool - Full Transfer
Stephen N'Zonzi - Blackburn - Full Transfer
Moussa Konate - Maccabi Tel Aviv - Full Transfer
Tijane - ? - Full Transfer ( been on trial)
kargbo - Hertha - Full Transfer
Popov - Dynamo Kyiv - Loan (Work Permit)
M'Bia - Marseille - Full Transfer
Lewis McGugan - Forest - Full Transfer
Kenwyne Jones - Aston Villa - Full Transfer
Ryan Shotton - leicester - Loan
Danny Higgingbottham - Championship - Loan/ Full transfer
Wilson Palacios - Valencia - Full Transfer

Mcgugan isn't for sale

Konate already went to FC Krasnodar
There was no legs in the Tijane rumour
M'Bia is off to QPR

Konate has already moved elsewhere, greece I think.

Sorry, make that Russia.

We aren't signing Jones.
And you aren't signing Charlie Adam - you can't afford his £60 k p/w wages. {Ed001's Note - good job he only gets 30k a week then! Complete nonsense to suggest he is on 60k a week.}

Adam and nzonzi would be great.

M'bia has come out and said he'd prefer joining QPR so I can't see him joining us if they throw out a bid

30 Aug 2012 13:58:35
rubbish on konate, tijane, kargbo and mcgugan joining stoke. Konate has just joined krasnodar so good rumour there

Delap (loan), Whitehead and Whelan (sale) have also all been linked to Championship teams.

To add On to eds note, Our wage cap Is 60k or 70k Not sure but I think we could afford that.

Don't know what to say really. Stoke need to move about 10 players before we can consider bringing in these many players and being realistic the best we could hope for would be Popov on loan and possibly charlie adam. Need to move palacios as soon as possible because it is obvious that Pulis doesn't want him

Act. our wage cap is 40k but pulis gives the players a big bonus which makes it basically 50k

Ah Ok my Bad Thanks for the correction.



30 Aug 2012 01:28:58
Park Chu Young set to sign season long loan with view to permanent by 2moro, watch this space!

Who for? Please, go on tell us, or dont you know?

Stoke still sniffing around michael owen, why? If we dont sign players that can give him the service he will end up being another eidur gudjonson but if we sign charlie adam michael owen should do fine for us.

Absolutely agree. We need to change how we play to get the best out of Owen or Defoe (doubtful) but if Crouch is going to struggle with our existing style then Owen would have no chance

Not a great step forward with Owen , he is too old now , better looking at new talent or players with a few years left. I think Charlie Adam would be an interesting acquisition though

Stoke will always struggle until pulis excepts pennant and etherington whelen whitehead Wilson wilko and Walters are not good anougth and championship players punching above there weight

Pennant and ethers are premier league winger I dont no how u can say they are championship players who do u expect us to have bale modric van der vaart young

Look at the facts lowest chances created .lowest goal scores and lowest sots on goal and only 1win in the prem all year and of the last half of the season of points gained stoke would of been bottom . Now tell me do u think there good anougth

Etherington and Pennant are great wingers with fantastic abilities....! They are defo premiership standard wingers and so is Kightly I think he's a real game changer with alot of belief

But Yh the stats are very poor for Stoke no doubt....there's alot of pressure on Stoke this season just to perform well and survive....this is the season for Stoke to make it or break it



This has to be the funniest rumour ever. not only do we have Chantler in good form at LB, we also have Bugno.....once he starts to understand english better will be good competition for Chris.

Shrewsbury to sign chelsea youngster lucas piazon on loan until january

Lucas is going to Middlesbrough on a years loan

, what a signing that would be!

This could be true. Turner has sights on a premier league reserve striker.

Not a cat in hells chance

No way will he drop down to league 2!

League one*

Rhodes having medical at Blackburn on Thursday. fee of 4.5 - 8m with add ons

Fee has been confirmed as £8mil upfront with add-ons making a potential total fee of £10mil+

Never on this planet is it £8m upfront

More like as the poster says something like 5 with add ons -

Hope it works out for you guys - otherwise you're another Portsmouth - The chicken farmers won't save you then

Rhodes will be a great signing for u such a down to earth kinda guy and will get u goals from a town fan

£8 million plus add ons was what was wanted so good business for Town, although a quality front man is needed before end of transfer window.

I said weeks ago dont be surprised if rhodes signs for rovers. Finaly we can stick two fingers up at all those stuck up huddersfield fans and other doubters.

Jordon rhodes blue n white army! Just been confirmed! What a signing shows we do have ambition for once after losing so many top players: jones, samba, hoilett, yak, etc

No it hasn't. The fee could rise to 8m but is initially around 4.5m

Its been confirmed by HTFC's club reporter as £8mil upfront. Town would have never accepted if they weren't guaranteed the minimum asking price

It is £8 million, wouldn't sell otherwise.

Why go to Blackburn when he had offers from the Premiership?

Wrong move by Rhodes, Blackburn's a sideways step and with Venky's and Kean in charge he's jeopardising his career
