Adebayor (Milan), Hleb (FC Barcelona), Gilberto (Valencia), Gallas (Juve/Roma) and Eboue (Tottenham) will all leave the Emirates in the coming weeks. Expect Huntelaar, Nasri, Yobo and Veloso to all come in as replacements. Yobo has been a long term target for Arsene Wenger and yobo is keen to move to the next level and Moyes faces an uncertain future due to lack of promised transfer funds so expect stars to leave Goodison. As far as a goalie goes Almunia will be number one next year as promised by Arsene Wenger and no goalie will be signed fabianski will be second choice and another polish Goal Keeper in reserves will be third. Also expect Villa n Silva 2 both stay with Valencia. If they do leave it will not be for the kop or Chelsea, only Spanish sides. Chelsea will sign bot eto'o, Robinho, Zhirkov and Deco replacind Drogba, pizzaro, Malouda and Lampard. Gooner87

  "To the fella that said Trundle will be moving to Everton for £10 million to replace Andy Johnson. You must be a red. Never heard so much flannel in my life. And since when was Birmingham Johnson's home City? He's a cockerney you quilt. " Hate to embarras you like this but the guy said he would be a replacement for the £10 million pound AJ. And he IS from Birmingham. hope this is posted

  Middlesbrough definitely have three signings already done. These are apparently Digard, Harper and a young Dutch winger called Marvin Emnes. Look out for these being announced when they return for pre–season.

  The Hammers will sign in the next month the following:

Joe Lewis (2 million)

Danny Haynes (2 million + Wright)

Gudjohnsen (4 million)

Joel Mattock (1 million)

  Shaun Maloney returning to Celtic on five year deal

apparently one of the Russian squad will also sign, would be nice to think it was the centre forward but methinks his worth may just be a bit too Rich for us now.

Naka to Newcastle? that is a strong one in Glasgow

  Rangers to get the following:

Figo – Deal Done

Darren Fletcher

Gattuso – Next Season


Big possibility is Saenko Russia


The biggest and most succesful club in the world.


  First of all, as a Tottenham fan I am used to the accusation of delusion when it comes to transfers. Half the problem is the press know Tottenham news sells papers and agents frequently link their players to Tottenham when looking for better contracts. Still it's nice to see Liverpool and Newcastle overtaking us in the delusion stakes.

Anyway. my news is that Berbs is now having second thoughts, he has been given a year extension which has to be signed by Julyfifth. There is a release Clause that if Tottenham do not make Champions League this year he will be allowed to go for £25 million. If he does not sign he will be sold for £30 million with nearly £3 million. going to him and his dirty agent as "technically" he has not asked for a transfer. FC Barcelona and Man United are waiting. Expect at least one more big signing to be confirmed before that date as they try to sway him. If he stays – bent goes

  100 percent TRUE.

Plymouth INs

Garry O'Connor Birmingham City (1.25 million)

Rab Douglas (free agent)

Makoto Hasebe JAPAN (275k)

Ümit Korkmaz AUSTRIAN (350K)

Plymouth OUTS

Peter Halmosi to Hull (2. 45 million fee agreed)

Nick Chadwick to Crew (50K)

Marcel Seip to Wolves (1.3 million)

  Yuriy Zhirkov is being strongly linked to Newcastle. The left sided midfield who has so far played as an out and out leftback in the Euros has been targeted by Wise as a very useful utility player. Cover for Enrique and competion for Charlie and Duff but the later is on his way out of SJP with a return to Blackburn or Wigan being on the cards. While fellow countryman Andrei Arshavin being linked to almost every big team in Europe it is Roman Pavlyuchenko that Newcastle will plum for as his physical play and finshing seems perfect for the EPL.

  I can reveal that David Silva has held talks with Liverpool FC after they agreed a £17 million fee with Valencia he will sign a four and a half year contract, Gareth Barry will sign for £16.5 million along with James Milner who will sign for £6 million. JJ

  Zhirkov of CSKA to sign for Newcastle.


Aberdeen are desperatly trying to bolster their squad for the season ahead. Jimmy Calderwood is back for pre–season now and the transfer activity is likely to pick up.

Mark Kerr is close to signing. He had offers from Hearts and some English sides but the Dons offer was the best package and a good chance to link up with mate Lee Miller.

Alan Gow is still a top target but Rangers are so far not playing ball. Personal terms with Gow are all but agreed but Rangers are reluctant to deal with Aberdeen and have told Gow as much.

Calum Elliot has been mentioned but Arsenal do not want to pay a transfer fee. Discussions are also ongoing with two Eastern European players. Dutch centre back Bakens is unlikely to sign as the Dons want him to hold on until late July while they pursue other targets


  Everton will make a major triple announcement on July first. Moyes will sign his new contract, Steve Round will be confirmed as his no. 2 and Tom Huddlestone will be confirmed as our first signing for £6.5 million from Tottenham.

  Mclean will go to Wolves £3.5 million + £1.5 million add ons bargain

  The guy who said that Rafa is looking at a double swoop for FC Barcelona pair Samuel Eto'o and Ronaldinho is 100 percent correct. I have serious connections with someone within the club and remember, I brought you the news of Torres and Babel, and also the fact that Kewell was offered a new contract way before any of these were confirmed. The combined fee is £35 million. Rafa wanted Eto'o last year but decided that the price FC Barcelona wanted was too much for his age, that is why he went for Torres. Eto'o would cost £20 million and Rafa believes that he and his coaches can turn Ronaldinho back to his very best. Both players, if agree will watch Liverpool in their first pre–season friendly against Tranmere mid–July. David Villa and Silva are both too pricy for Rafa this Summer but will look at Silva again in January. Alonso staying as Barry will remain at Villa, Dossena done deal by Tuesday. Keep you informed of other updates.

  A few random rumours from around Europe, Arshavin to FC Barcelona, Lampard to Inter, Mario Gomez to Bayern Munich, Hatem Ben Arfa to Marseille, Nasri to Arsenal, David Villa to FC Barcelona, Jo to Manchester City, Ronaldinho to AC Milan, Miguel Veloso to Arsenal, Peter Crouch to Portsmouth, David Guiza to Fenerbache, Deco to Chelsea, Antonio Cassano to Roma, Daniel Alves to FC Barcelona.

  Not so much rumour as fact with speculation–

Everton have called an emergancy board meeting last night where non of the board member know why they have been called

speculation– Moyes has Walked or Large takeover by the rumoured rusian investor

Steve Round has also appeared on Merseyside for talks about becoming Moyes no. 2

  A2D's Arsenal Update:

Seems like it is all going wrong at the Emirates, but fear not and believe not in the media frenzy and become like petulant children.

After the breaking news of Adebayor's 1 hr seeming change of heart, Gunners fans went into melt down accross forums and boards. Basically the facts of the supposed conflicting statements, must be put into perspective.

Shifting through the nonsense one finds the way. Adebayor wants to stay, but wants a new contract. The board reckon they can fleese Milan or FC Barcelona for a silly fee. Wenger will decide on which way he will go i.e 80 k a week or Anelka esque £25 million + ) Only he will decide and until news of a new contract is signed by Adebayor or he's pictured at a press conference with another teams shirt will we then know.

I reckon Wenger is going to flog him as this disruption will have caused too much hassle.

27–30 million. Bang. Milan. Gone. Bye Bye

Then There is Hleb. If you gather the info based on the Russian radio interview (which had not be interpretted well until early morning). He see's 10 top teams in Europe, two of them are offering him better terms and he's already had 2 discussion's with Wenger at the end of the season regarding a move. No Loyalty whatsoever.

15 million. Bang. Barcelona. Gone. Bye Bye

It's taking longer because although fans want a swap deal, they are not THAT desperate to sign him and a swap deal shows our eagerness to get rid, which is not the case here.

no player swap.

Nasri will sign on first of July thus to insure the deal is included in this years tax quota. 13.5 million as originally quoted with miniscule add–ons bringing it to 15.6 million if my sources are correct.

Then there is keeping the existing squad happy and it'll be spending time. but as per usual not much of a spree, more a case of essential purchases.

A Centre forward (which we can all get delusional speculatulating upon whom) to appease the fans would be essential. but it'll be someone where the links have thus far remain non–credited to us. With Bergkamp's help and the blessings of Van Basten we will get Huntelaar for 17.6 million.

Midfield is not really the problematic area as Denilson/Diaby will play there as not to stiffle their development. I"m sure we'll sign Chantome from Paris St. Germain also. Veluso talk is agent's trying to get a better P from actual suitors and media journalist's trying to sell their sweaty rag.

Song, Hoyte, Nordviet, Senderos, Eboue, Traore and Djourou will cover the obvious back 4 in defense. Confirming Wenger's statement that the defense can always improve and does not neccessarily need immediate improvement.

They will be no keeper neither as Almunia has been handed the no. 1 shirt and Mannone (No. 3) is included with a first team squad number behind the no. 2 Fabianski.

Then there is the signing he will suprise us with.

My gut tells me Silva from Valencia at about £18 million.


Huntelaar 17.6 million

Silva – £18 million

Nasri – 13.5 million

Ramsey – £5 million

Chantome – £3 million

That will be IT.


Flamini – Free

Lehmann – Free

Hleb – £15 million – Barcelona

Adebayor £30 million – AC Milan

Done and dusted.

Let Battle Commence


Ade wants to go, that was clear in his interview, but it is in the hands of Wenger. One more pop at Champs Lge for Ade at Emirates as AC Milan are not in it, then it is offski. Diogo/Bendtner to replace him. Diogo will sign in January window.

Nasri deal done but being held back on announcing due to Ben Arfa move and another Arsene signing.

Wenger likes to unveil two players together as it takes pressure and focus off of just one.

The other one?. Veloso.

As for Hleb, he ain't going.

Keep em peeled.

  hammers news

the Hammers have just agreed a 12.75 million bid for Antonio Di Natale from Udinese he arrived in gatwick yesterday and there are pictures in Italian newspapers with him outside Upton Park

  Ok lets get this straight, Rafa does have funds to spend, but he does not have enough to buy Silva and Villa.

Rafa is looking for a winger with a lot of pace and some1 who can get you goals and that person is Silva. Rafa has been urged by Torres to buy Villa, but Rafa's main target is a winger (Silva)

If Rafa did have the funds he would buy Villa and Silva.

Liverpool Ins:





A back up to Torres, worth about 7–10 million

Liverpool outs:

Crouch (Pompey)

Alonso (Juve)

Pennant (Newcastle)

Riise (Roma)

Vorinon Free

Idtanje (Galatasera)

  Liverpool will sign gareth barry for a fee around 16.4 million, and will also sign steward Downing for £10 million and we will also sign a new spaniard.


  Rafael Benitez was offered the job of the Spanish National team in March with Araognes stepping down but rejected the move to concentrate on club football with Liverpool, although he has personal ambitions to manage his country one day as well as Real Madrid although at the age of 48, he is completely focused on the Liverpool job atleast for the next three seasons. Vicente del Bosque will take over from Aragones as Spain coach.

  New Blackburn manager Paul Ince is looking to bring carlo Cudicini to Ewood park as his first signing and will also look at his team mate Salomon Kalou from Chelsea for a combind fee of £9 million. he will is also look at Tottenham duo Lennon and huddleston he will only by Lennon if bentey leaves combind fee £12 million. expect to see a new right back he has gonzalo castro in his sites for £7 million and he will make two more signings from PSV ibrahim afferlay young and talented and Jefferson farfan good forward can also play down the wings for a combind fee of £15 million. the gaffer wants these players as he wants his team to play more exciting football as they will be pushing for Europe and expect to see some top players dropped from the team.

Blackburn for top 5 finish next season you could even see them taking the last championship place as Arsenal will not finish in the top 4

  My brother plays for the Hearts first team/reserves and has shared a few bit of gossip with the close family, being a die hard Jambo I have decided to post part of what he said, I was going to post on JKB but would have ended up getting slated + I do not want anyone to know who this info came from.

After Stevie Frail was asked to go home at the start of pre–season centre back handed in a transfer request (I believe he was going to do this anyway and it has been reported in the EEN to some degree). Jose, Nade, Andrew Driver and Callum Elliot had already done so prior to training. On the back of what happened some of the other guys have been talking about doing the same as they feel they are playing for a club on the way down and not up, most however want to do this to show they are not happy with the way the club is being ran and would happily stay if they knew what was happening

My brother also said that there was a few new faces when he showed up however none spoke English and were not introduced to the squad, the guys were taken away prior to the start of training. Nobody asked who the players were.

The final thing I am going to post is that the expectation was set to all the players that Stevie Frail will not return and that a new manager will be in place next week and that talks were at an advanced stage. It was not made clear if the manager will have full control and it sounded like players may be asked to take paycuts. This caused a major arguements in the changing room with players knowing that they may not be picked even if they are playing/training well. My brother and the team were told Vlad will speak to them next week to clarify how the team will be run going forward and how each of them fits into HIS plans.

He did give other info but I cannot post this as people would be able to work out who my brother is.

I hope we get a good manager and he gets full control because I will not be back at Tynie next year, instead I will attend all away games

  I said Elmander would go to Bolton

lafferty would go to Rangers and the rest of these players are heaing to Ibrox:





wait and see


  Tottenham could sign Clarence Seedorf from AC Milan this Summer. David Bentley will also be arriving at Tottenham as Ramos looks to shake things up. Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov will continue as a strike partnership with Bentley, Dos Santos, Seedorf and Modric forming a brand new midfield. With Gomes as the new goalkeeper, Ramos looks set to build an almost brand new team with the midfield completely changed. Anton Ferdinand could also be set to move to White Hart Lane while Joan Capdevilla is also a target. Ramos has been told that a Top 6 finish is expected amidst the big spending.

  Former Liverpool winger Sanz Luis Garcia, currently at Athletico Madrid is desperate for a return to the Premier League. Kevin Keegan is considering signing him at Newcastle United while Blackburn Rovers and Fulham are also interested.

= v1=

  Leicester City starlet Joe Mattock is expected to sign for either Aston Villa or the Hammers within the next 48 hours after the youngster made it clear he wants out of League 1. the Hammers manager Alan Curbishley was disappointed to have missed out on the 18 year old in the January transfer window, and with Martin O'Neill now tracking the U–21 internationals progress for several months, both clubs are ready to battle it out with a £2.5 million price tag being held over Mattock's head by club owner Milan Mandaric.

  Ronaldo is going no where. he is staying in Manchester

United. he will be reporting at Man United for the pre–season begings ant July 16

  Kevin Keegan is tracking free agent Edgar Davids but will only seal the signing of the Dutchman if Ruud Gullit does not offer him a contract at LA Galaxy, where he is currently training.

  Rumour From Edinburgh's Premium Paper

I have it on good authority that a deal to bring Steven Fletcher to Heart of Midlothian has collapsed. The deal involving Hearts paying £1.5 million + Calum Elliot collapsed once Frail was shown the door. He was instrumental in the deal and Fletcher will now look at other options.

Head Coach candidate Weiss has rejected Hearts and will take charge of Slovakia for their World Cup Qualifiers.

Hearts Owner has now identified his preferred choice and will allow him full control. Klaus Toppermoeller will be unveiled on Wednesday on the Tynecastle Pitch.

Rumour From Edinburgh's Premium Paper

  After Weeks of waiting Wolves will finalise their squad for next season.

Thankfully the board have agreed not to sell any of their prize assets of Kightly, Hennesey and Ebanks–Blake, but strengthened the squad to push for promotion to the Premier League.


David Jones – Derby £1 million

Christopher Berra – Hearts £1.5 million

Andrew Hammill – Liverpool undisc

Richard Stearman – Leicester undisc

Matt Oakley – Leicester 500 k

Aaron McClean – Peterborough £2 million

Sam Vokes – Bournemouth 250 k


Jay Bothroyd – Stoke (you can have him)

Stephen Elliott – Leicester

Seyi Olofinjana – Bolton/Wigan £3 million

Rob Edwards – Walsall 100 k

Gary Breen – released

Freddie Eastwood – Coventry/Queens Park Rangers £2 million

Daniel Jones – Northampton (Loan season)

Mark Little – Northampton (Loan Season)

Mark Davies – Walsall (Loan three months)

Lewis Gobern – Stockport (Loan three months)

Darren Ward – Reading 500 k

Darren Potter – Burnley 200 k

Charlie Mulgrew – Southend 125k

All these deals are likely to be complete before the start of the season. Mick McCarthey's shrude business at this level will see him once again run away with the Division to glory.

  NUfc Rumours

looks like the mighty mags have lost out on arda turan after he's said to prefer a move to Italy, also his price now shot up to the £15 million Mark due to impressive displays at the euro, s

A bid still on the table for St. Etienne forward bafetimbi gomis and persuing a deal for erin derdiyok of FC Basle.

ins: dawson £4 million outs: milner £8.5 million

bouhlarouz £5 million ameobi £3 million

aimar £5.5 million Smith £5 million

wright–phillips £9 million Emre £3 million

if the bid for arda fails keegan will keep hold of damien Duff. other possible targets are PSG's amara diane £6 million, toulouse's achille emana £7 million and depending on the milner situation Aaron Lennon is another keegan wants on board.

  The player that is speaks English but is not English is a one t. Henry ladies and gents.

  Arsenal are going to keep Hleb in a shock turn around to current rumours. FC Barcelona will turn to Arshavin for £10 million. He is cheaper than Hleb and they gt to keep Yaya Toure as a result. Bad news again gooners as we will have yet another moody player staying who does not want to play for us. I fear we will keep Adebayor too as he is loyal to Wenger but my feeling is we need to cash in now. if we had of cashed in on Henry one season before we could of had £30 million rather than a £16 million cheque. I expect Wenger to make shrewd moves though. Expect Ramsey and Vela to feature more with their first team squad numbers recently being given. Wenger will buy Nasri for £15 million to replace Flamini and maybe sign veloso from sporting. I am afraid some fans on this site are far too optimistic for us. I expect Liverpool and Chelsea to have great seasons next year and also I am afraid to say Tottenham may finish above us.

  100 percent fact

Bristol City will push for promotion again with the signings of experienced players Ray Parlour and Antoine Sibierski. City will aslo splash the cash recieved from Nick Carle's transfer to Crystal Palace on Kevin Davies, as he has fallen out with Gary Megson and the wage bill needs to be cut.

There may be some high profile defensive transfers at Ashton Gate as well with recent reports circilating that Bobo Balde has been seen in discussions with Peter Johnson in a Glasgow resturaunt

Another Bizzare story filtering through is that Stan Collymore wants one more try at professional football, Gary Johnson has always been a fan of Collymore and is reported to have said that Colly would be welcome for a trial anytime if he was serious about his return. this could be one of the strangest transfers in Bristol City's history but it does not seem to be that farfetched. BCFC ACTIVITY will BE HIGH

  Enough of this samir Nasri to Arsenal £15 million, it's no longer a rumour as Nasri himself has come out and stated he will join Arsenal

now for real rumours, earlier in the season Rafa stated that he had signed an English speaking young player that was highly regarded around Europe. that player is as someone on this site mentioned a forward player, it is 17yr old Nikola Saric, of second devision danish team herfolge.

Godwin Antwi to Chester City on loan for next season.

yanks out

  Portugese side Benfica are semingly going to make a 1–3 million bid for Hearts Maurico Pinnila.

  Rumour has it that Frank Sinclair will Join Lincoln City and bring hif Huddersfeild town team–mate Luke Beckett with him.

  massive liverpool news.

Rafael Benitez plans to use Yossi Benayoun in a deal to bring Klaas–Jan Huntelaar to Anfield. Peter Crouch will eventually be sold to fund the deal with Portsmouth still interested. Liverpool want near £12 million for the England forward not the £15 million being branded about. Christian Nemeth may go out on loan next season but for only six months. A bid has been faxed to Real Zaragoza for Sergio Garcia for 15 Millon Euros so expect him to sign. There has been no offer put to Middlesbrough for winger Stuart Downing and do not expect any bid to be made. Ricardo Quaresma is not wanted by Liverpool because of his price tag and will sign for Inter. He would have been a Liverpool player last January if the price was right; the player wanted the move but Porto were not budging. The Gareth Barry saga maybe ended by the end of next week. Benitez wants to pay no more than £14 million but Villa want £18 million. If no deal is agreed Xabi Alonso will stay at Liverpool.

Expect next season's signings to be: Degen, Dossena, Barry, Garcia, Huntelaar

  Big Man United Rumours

Fergie may make a cheeky bid for Adebayor, he tried to sign him last season but failed when he signed a new contract with Arsenal, and seeing as though United need a new forward, and Arsenal look to be losing Adebayor, there could be the biggest suprise signing at the Theatre of Dreams.

Ronaldo will not go, after all this nonsense on the news, he will return to train with United on the 14th July. He has never said 'I want to leave' so why would he go to the biggest under–performing team in Europe?

United will then sign Sergio Ramos, but give Real Madrid first refusal on Ronaldo in two years.

100 percent Facts. Ross G

  ''I have also seen Pavel Nedved at Glasgow airport coming back from holiday. but what does that mean? '' It means go and get an autograph son cause you might never see him again. Now that Velicka, Miller, Lafferty and McGregor are signed up Rangers to try and bring in three more players – Suchy from Slavia Prague, Steve Davis from Fulham and Palladino from Juve. Over at the Death Star, Darth Strachan to try and move from Atouba and can we clear up that Roman Pavlyuchenko will not be a Celtic player. unless you get him in Champ man or Pro ev haha

  Bristol City have recieved bids for Lee Trundle from Everton, Birmingham, Stoke, Hull, Sunderland, Wolves and Wigan. Trundle does fancy a move to the midlands as he has a house in Meir Heath, Staffordshire.

  My mate is an estate agent in Smethwick and has shown Vagner Love round some houses. He told my mate that he hopes to sign for the Baggies in the next few days and was impressed watching their Brazilian style of football last season. He was actually at the Hawthorns last season for their fantastic 4–2 victory over Colchester.

  To the Everton fan that said Johnson's a Cockney. Correction he was born there but moved to Birmingham after about two months it is his adopted City and he adores the place. He will not be signing for Villa though he will join boyhood team Birmingham City as the Blues have cash readily available now.


  Joe Lewis has just signed a four and a half year deal at the Hammers, the fee is thought to be in the region of £2 million but could still include a player going to Peterborough.
