Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Gordon Strachan wants Sheffield United star Phil Jagielka and is willing to offere the services of either Kenny Miller, Neil Lennon and Alan Thompson + cash for the midfielder. I think this is the mystery midfield man Celtic have been looking for and I think that Kenny Miller and Alan Thompson will definately not be celtic players com midnight on thursday.To the guy who said guus hiddink will be at chelsea next year - you're correct in saying that Abrahamovic loves him (in fact wanted him before mourinho) but as a friend of guus, I can tell you he doesnt want to coach chelsea.Man Utd are about to tie up a deal that will see Tevez and Mascherano join for £34.8m, this is due to the Hargreaves deal falling threw and SAF wanting to loan out Rossi, there are only 2 reasons this deal might fall apart, 1.time and 2. if there is a problem with the money (way it is paid). United have 3 main advantges in signing the 2 players Heinze, the worlds biggest club and Tevez is a United fan. To sweeten the deal United have also said that if they are look to loan out any south american talent in the future that they will have first option. Arsenal will sign the beast.Man Utd to make a shock signing for Robinho of Real Madrid. Heard from a group of man utd coaches at a manchester restaurantRonaldinho-chelsea

torres chelsea

a.cole - chelseaKris Boyd could be set for a shock move to the Premiership, just 1 year after Rangers signed him. It is believed that Rangers would accept around £4 million for the goalscorer, and Fulham, Reading, Arsenal, Newcastle and even Man U are possibly interested.

=v1=After Monday's debacle Brian Robson is set to bring Gary Megson back to the club as a defensive advisor whilst signing Gary Breen and Danny Collins to stiffen the defence. 100 % true.NEWS FLASH

Celtic, after finally completing the signing of midfield general Graveson, will now sign 2 other players. Scott Brown from Hibs for £1.2 million and also Jan Kromkamp from Liverpool for £840k.Also, local reports are suggesting that Chris Millar from Morton will be signing for Dundee United for £50k.

U HEARD IT HERE 1ST!!Davies to sheff utd!! you must be insane , my brother works for pro-zone and does analysis for bolton,boltons formation is based around two main players DAVIES and NOLAN. sam has built a TEAM, not 11 players like the rest of the premiership, and WILL NOT allow either of these two to go UNLESS of a ridiculous bid.Man utd want nigel reo-coker from west ham but will have to break the bank to get him, £7.5 million plus kieron richardson will see the deal go throughActually SAF have not say anything about teves. if he wants him he will come. but its not the case. his true admire is still torres. he will wait for him on january. teves is a risk to play in EPL as the pace are just too fast. the likely places are serieA and Laliga. (RD)News from arsenal.

carlos tevez will join, in other way reyes will leave.

cole in a blur situation, but i expect him to leave emirates since he has no heart to play for arsenal. expect gallas to come in.

another one : arsenal is looking for a holding midfielder. mascherano is the man. arsene is keen admirer of mascherano. so the team would be:


eboue toure gallas/senderos clichy

hleb fabregas mascherano rosicky

henry carlitos/RVPStrong Source my mate is a football pundit for clyde 1 radio station, he is also in the players union in scotland.

Kris Boyd From rangers is a transfer target for manchester united to replace ruud.

somewhere in the region of 9million could tempt rangers as he is a guarenteed goalscorer. 35+per season if he got the service at man u with the likes of rooney and ronaldo.I have heard a rumour concerning a potential move in January already. French champions Lyon are planning a £4m move for Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini, who can also operate as a left back following the injury problems Arsene Wenger endured last season. Wenger would be reluctant to lose Flamini, but Lyon would be able to guarentee him first team football ahead of former Chelsea squad member Tiago. Ashley Cole and Gael Clichy look set to stay at Arsenal, ruling Flamini out of favour at full back. Cesc Fabregas, Gilberto, Alexander Hleb, Abou Diaby and Tomas Rosicky are all ahead of him in the pecking order in midfield, so the temptation of regular football at Lyon would appeal to the former Marseille man.GOONERNEWS The rumours are true.Corinthians directors were in talks with AW and David Dein after the game with Dinamo Zargreb last wednesday and the following day.A massive deal is being put together for both Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano.Both are being tracked by Man Utd but have said that they would rather play in London for Arsenal.Reyes looks likely to be going to Atletico Madrid rather than Real Madrid as it seems that Real cannot get the funds together for the transfer fee?One major shock though could be the signing of Gianluigi Buffon?Hot Off the Press. David Nugent is at Goodison Park right now thrashing out a contract.

Just got the phone call from my sister who works in the club shop.A few full back moves in the next few days. Australian right-back, Lucas Neill is set to sign for Liverpool for £2 million and Blackburn will replace him with Man City's Danny Mills. Pascal Chimbonda will sign for Tottenham for around £6 million and Jan Kromkamp of Liverpool is likely to head back to Holland, with PSV and Ajax interested although Bolton Wanderers are also interested. As for Ashley Cole, the Chelsea move looks off, but he may be tempted by a last minute Real Madrid offer, although it looks as though he will be at Arsenal for the next year.

As for Chelsea's persuit of a left-back, they may offer £10 million for Philip Lahm of Bayern Munich although Mourinho may keep faith in Wayne Bridge. If Chelsea sign a new left-back, then Newcastle will sign Wayne Bridge.

=v1=Derby could be set to make a shock move for U.S.A and Kansas City star Josh Wolllf. He was told that he would not be permitted in England, however Billy Davies is trying hard to secure the signing for January. Reading, Crystal Palace and Watford are also interested in the striker who featured at the World Cup.

=v1=Iain Dowie wants to sign Geremi from Chelsea and Wayne Routledge from Tottenham prior to the Thursday midnight transfer deadline. He may also sell Marcus Bent.

=v1=Sheffield United will make one signing before the deadline and that is Greg Halford for 800k. J.K.Aston Villa have reportedly made a 17M bid for unsettled Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o. The Cameroonian striker walked out of the club's Spanish Super Cup victory over Espanyol on Sunday. The prolific striker did not take kindly to being replaced by summer signing Eidur Gudjohnsen at half-time and promptly left Camp Nou to miss out on picking up his medal following the 3-0 victory. Los Cules boss Frank Rijkaard also declined to criticise the former Real Mallorca striker as he reflected on a winning start to the new campaign. "It is true he left early," said Rijkaard. "After a match emotions are running high and it is better to sleep on it and talk about it the following day.Over the next year arsenal will buy:

masherano,yaya toure,robinho,gallas,buffon,f.torres,ribery and tevez.

out:cygan,reyes,jungberg(a real shame),almunia ,maybe gilberto silva(not sure,he might go to inter milan to join up wit vieria)and a lot of reserve players will leave.Mascherano will be joining Arsenal or Man U because he does not want to go to Chelsea because he wants first team football. To the guy who said that Mascherano said he was "staying" that was up and till the point he got sent off for Corinthians and then didn't show up for training. Both Tevez and Mascherano have gone AWOL. Mascherano said he was staying prior to an argument with a team mate.1.35 pm, CELTIC PARK, 30th AUG

Villa might also sign defoe for 8m since he has fallen out with them.

MON should also give the trialist agathe a 1 year contract

100% true

skI am fed up with looking on here and reading all the nonsense on here. Tevez and Mascherano will not be going to arsenal. Tevez most likely destination will be AC milan. They will be able to meet his wage demands and they will pay in excess of 20million for him as they have the cash from shevchenko, they will also offer brazilians amarouso and serginho as a makeweight, AC will also complete the sighning of Iauqinta from udinese for about 10 million. Mascherano will join either man utd or inter milan. Most likely man utd. SAF is a massive fan and always has been, mascherano would relish playing for utd with other great young players like rooney and ronaldo. We will be willing to pay big money aswell, expect this deal to go through if not this summer in january. Reyes will leave Arsenal and join valencia as they are spending big, trying to push for la liga title. I would expect saviola to join villareal, as they are the club who can ressuruct careers (forlan,riquelme,tacchinardi)they also have a big south american contingency and are real contenders for european places again this year. The influecne of riquelme and sorin will see that he will join. u heard it here first CuRnAlTottenham will announce the signings of Cimbonda and Malbranque today, and MJ will put in and offer for Baptista. Also Routledge and Murphy are on their way to Fulham and Defoe will got to Villa if we get Baptista. Lee Young Pyo is staying. Arsenal will sign Mascherno in a 17.5mil deal, and Reyes will sign for A.Madrid for 14mil. Middlesborough will sign Woodgate and Euell and Pompey will sign Andy Cole.TOON NEWS!!

everton will not sign any1 else as they have no money.malbranque to sign for spurs. So its deadline day tomorrow.

Expect these transfers to happen:

Malbranque, Chimbonda, Kewell to Spurs

Neill to Liverpool

Mills to Blackburn

Nugent, Cole + Fernandes to Pompey

And oh! no one to Everton - unlucky blue nostrilsThis seems like an appropriate website for me to say that Real Madrid look set to trim their squad even further before the transfer deadline. Jonathan Woodgate has joined Middlesbrough on a season long loan deal, while Thomas Gravesen has clinched a £2m move to Celtic. However, Brazilian striker Julio Baptista looks set to be on the move before today's deadline. Arsenal are still monitoring his progress, though they look set to sign Carlos Tevez from Corinthians. Tottenham have also been mooted as potential employers, though the summer signings of Dimitar Berbatov and Mido have ruled them out of the running. Word is that Newcastle will make a late bid to tempt him to the Premiership with a deadline day bid of £11m. Obafemi Martins, Albert Luque and Shola Ameobi are the Toon's only strikers and boss Glenn Roeder is eager to recruit a fourth.Manchester United will make a £40m double bid for Corinthian's Argentine starlets Carlos Alberto Tevez and Javier Mascherano who are both in England for a friendly against Brazil. In January expect a move for Tottenham speedster Aaron Lennon who is homesick away from the north to replace the ageing Ryan GiggsI think in last day off transfers window the transfers would be (cos'my english is bad):

1.mascherano to man utd

2.tevez to chelsea

3.reyes to valencia

4.chimbonda to tottenham

5.lee to roma

They could be the top teen transfers in last dayMAN UTD FANS GOOD NEWS

Earlier today i went to OT after hearing rumours of the arrival of both Carlos Tevez and Mascherano. There i saw Tevez leaving and signing a few autographs, howvere i did not see Mascherano although i was told by other fans that he was there earlier. SAF will reveal his final summer signings tomorrow in a press confrenece held aroung 3:00pm. OH unfortunatley is definately not joining OT as most of you no, and neither is nigel reo-cocker but i am happy as United fans must be with these two signings.

ChrisNewly promoted, La Liga side Recreativo de Huelva are to sign Liverpool striker, Florent Sinama-Pongolle on a 1 year loan deal. The French u-21 star will be the biggest signing for the Spanish outfit and they will have the option to sign him for an additional year if they stay up and consider a permanent transfer.

=v1=Mackems manager keane to sign solkjaer on loan for season with rossi, and 1million bid for villas djemba dejemba. Also expect world cup international striker yorke to sign by end of transfer deadlineDavid Trezeguet is poised to seal a last minute move from Juventus although Camoranesi could stay until January. Man U are interested in Trezeguet and Real Betis are interested in Camoranesi.

=v1=Once again the press in Australia are claiming that Liverpool have offered 4.99 million pounds to Blackburn for Lucas Neill. Blackburn have said no hoping to get more money out of the Reds. Blackburn are playing a dangerous game as Neill is in the last year of his contract and could walk for nothing next season. There would be no shortage of offers for the Socceroo after the great form he showed in the world cup playing in the centre of defence. Rumours are also circulating about Harry Kewell. His days seem to be numbered, with Rafa wanting 2 class players in every position Harry could be on the move. Aureilio, Riise, Gonzales, Warnock and possibly Zenden will fill the bill on the left leaving little room for Harry. Plus he is on big wages and this will enable Rafa to get him off the wages bill and sign more young talent in January.

Go the Reds!Aston Villa news

1.Jermain Defoe will be an Aston Villa player by midnight thursday

2. Javier Saviola is not coming to Aston Villa due to him wanting champions leauge football
