31 Aug 2012 22:35:57
Charlie Austin, Jermaine Beckford and Adam Hamill set to be unveiled at Huddersfield Town....

Don't think so same old town

Sadly the only signing and this on a loan is Hammill, the other two would not have been on my list to get but others would have been. A big worry now, where are our goals coming from, we have a good defence and midfield but selling our prize asset in Rhodes without a backup could be fatal.

Micheal owen to play on loan for hudderfield town in next two weeks.

No Beckford deal. Wanted too much for him and LCFC not interested in loaning out

1 OUT OF 3 not bad

What you talking about same old town it has been said on sky sports news and Huddersfield reporter

Beckford had signed - leicester pulled at last minute - set to be a loan deal

No beckford , no austin and definitely no owen

Owen would be good on pay as you play deal. would create a good buzz. if he was good enough for msn u lst year im sure he can do s job for town and help our younger guys to improve too.



31 Aug 2012 22:33:43
Mackail-Smith to join Norrwich.



31 Aug 2012 22:33:14
As I said before beavon has signed for Preston for a fee of £250,000 deal is done

Well we got our man,PNE are obviously a better option than championship Millwall,and we obviously can compete with them re-wages.The future is bright the futures white.

In answer to the last text Preston are in LEAGUE 1, & Millwall scored three goals yesterday & don't need him!!!

PNE were the only option for him!! League one!!

No millwall fans don't act like you didn't want him you got priced out by wycome because yo lack ambition and now you say you didn't want him? Doesn't wash lads



31 Aug 2012 22:28:46
southend winger ryan hall on the way to blackpool for 250k.

Check again LOOOL

31 Aug 2012 22:45:30
Nzonzi set to sign for Stoke.



31 Aug 2012 21:12:44
Billy Sharp to Nottingham Forest from Southampton on a season long loan, just been confirmed

Hope he does well, great player hope he comes back. Good luck Billy

Can't quite understand this one,good scoring record for the time and the games he's had for us,would've been much happier had it been Guly who was sent out on loan.
Suppose someone would have had to driven him though,heard he likes to imbibe a bit.

Agreed. Nice chap. Cdajfu.

Gutted for billy. He's been brilliant for saints and deserved more of a chance. Wish him well though and hope to see him in saints shirt next season.

Honestly i think it will be good for Billy to go on loan to Forest because he wont get playe at Southampton this season because of Lambert Rodriguez Mayuka Guly Lee hopefully we will get him back at the end of the season but i doubt it.



31 Aug 2012 21:11:01
darius vassell is having a medical at Carlisle united, as he is a free agent so the deal can be done after the transfer deadline.

Should come back to villa we need experience and on a free is a win win situation

We all chipping in extra at the gate to try and cover his wage like?

This rumour is total lies as the owners would never stump up the money to pay his wages. Every bit of money they can save or make just sits nice and warm in thier back pockets sad but true

Believe this one is true will happen tomorrow 1 year deal

If this happens i'll eat my hat! But To be honest isn't Vassell past it?

Still no deal knew this was lies



31 Aug 2012 21:08:01
Cameron Jerome to Norwich. £2m

Jerome would have been better that kane, not a good signing, 2nd prem season we need more than "potential" as houghton puts it!!!

Totally agree. Despite the "bottle" we showed yesterday we need to score 2 goals each game to win games in this leage. I can't see how we're going to do that with the striking options we have on the bench. We have about 15 goals from Holt and 20 from midfield, but need more than that...

Agree.Just being more dificult to beat is no good.We need a lot more goal threat and 2 goals in 3 games is relegation form.Kane looks interesting.Quality, very young would like to see him getting games. Would have prefered Abdellouie or Hooper. We don't want to be signing a major striker in January.By then it will be too late. The die is pretty much cast.Let's hope Kane has it at this level.



31 Aug 2012 21:48:26
Frankie Hullett to crystal palace?



31 Aug 2012 21:23:17

Ashkan dejagah to fulham



31 Aug 2012 21:12:44
Billy Sharp to Nottingham Forest from Southampton on a season long loan, just been confirmed

Im a forest fan is he any good

He is extremely good at getting goals, but can be frustrating at times because he gets shoved off the ball really easily.

Takes a while to settle,but when he does he scores goals.he will score at least 20 im sure of that



31 Aug 2012 21:11:01
darius vassell is having a medical at Carlisle united, as he is a free agent so the deal can be done after the transfer deadline.



31 Aug 2012 21:31:18

31 Aug 2012 20:17:23
Burnley last minute signings,

Harry Kane maybe Permanent More likely to be on loan
Same with Brett Pitman, Dobbie won't be be signing for Burnley after Signing Stewart on loan. And to be honest I
Don't think Dobbie was coming anyway. UTC!

Kane as signed for posh

Austin gone to Huddersfield

Javi Garcia to city for £16m



31 Aug 2012 19:42:32
Town likely to replace Rhodes with a player from Scotland, already had a bid rejected from Celtic for Anthony Stokes

For some reason we put in a 1.25 million offer for johnny russell and gary mackay-steven! they are worth at least 4.5 million together!

No their worth 3mil MAX...... For both! Dundee utd need the money so double the offer and 1 foot would have been in the door!

Huddersfield have an absolute cheek to try and pass off the bid they made - especially given the 4.5m they received upfront for Rhodes.



31 Aug 2012 19:42:31
Wrexham sign bury striker andy bishop on loan till the 2nd january.



31 Aug 2012 19:41:15
Heard from a reliable source that Derby have submitted a bid of £1.25m + Tom Naylor on loan to Dundee Utd for striker Johnny Russell.

Derby board want him but nigel said in an interview that he doubts the board would be willing to pay the price it would take but they are adding money to the money recieved from out goings

He's staying at Dundee Utd



31 Aug 2012 19:25:12
Dundee reject Huddersfield bid for mackay-Steven and Russell the bid was 1.25mil for the pair

Lost out to Celtic on deal for Russell

Send him to leeds

How did we lose out to Celtic? Nobody signed him..

Your offer was a joke!! it was dundee utd that booted your offer out not dundee.the two best young players in scotland



31 Aug 2012 19:16:34
Stoke have confirmed edu signing.

Terrible signing! I'm a rangers fan and the guy is useless! Sorry bud!

Dont think an international can be bad



31 Aug 2012 19:19:33
wilfried zaha to norwich

Would have been a good addition, young, raw talent with bundles of pace, ready to step up to the mark in the Premier League. If only!!

Unlikely. We have x3 attacking wide midfielders. Zaha wont be cheap either.No point buying him then parking him on the bench. A striker is a greater priority.



31 Aug 2012 19:18:53
mansfield want york citys liam henderson

Dempsey will be one of the two players that Liverpool sign this evening. The other may come as a surprise, Leandro Damiao, the long-time Tottenham target has touched down in Liverpool airport in the last hour. Personal terms have been agreed and Brendan Rodgers will soon leave Anfield to meet to at the hospital where the medical can occur.

Wish this is true but dought it, is there any proof

york city to make quick swoop for stockports danny hattersly



31 Aug 2012 18:29:16
Blackpool are going to sign reading striker Simon church for 1.2 million pounds

I would love that deal to happen because he is rubbish and Reading will be getting payed more than he is worth.

Church is a good young striker with a decent game to goal ratio. Blackpool know how to sniff out untapped talent and some Reading fans know how rubbish their own players. Shocking!

Do me a favour, most Reading fans know Church is crap and Robson-Kanu league one players at best

Hal is championship but yh church isnt a good player


Watched Simon church since his debut under Steve Coppell. I'd put him up there with Darius Henderson in most useless striker

HRK is great clearly not a real fan

HRK would be a good championship player and same with church

HRK is dire



31 Aug 2012 18:21:09
johnny ertl and darel russell join pompey ready to play v oldham however josh thompson has signed but awaiting international and FA clearance and can not play tomorrow also bogdanovic set to sign after international clearance hes been seen at Fratton park

That would be great news give us oldham supporters a manager who actually knows what he is doing can,t help but think we will be relegated by chritmas actually that would be good timing for paul dickov and gerry taggart what with pantomine season plenty of elfs required and their always looking for characters who can play shrek



31 Aug 2012 18:15:11

burnley set to sign harry kane from tottenham on loan until January



31 Aug 2012 18:03:03
Dundee Utd have recieved 2 bids in the last hour for Johnny Russell. Both Derby and Celtic have launched a raid to get the striker with the Rams offering £1.5m + Tom Naylor on loan. Celtic have made a £2m bid. Dundee Utd are very tempted by both and will be getting back to the clubs shortly.



31 Aug 2012 17:57:39
j beckford refuses move to huddersfieldwaiting to join leeds utd on loan to jan with view to buy also coming on loan shaun derry season loan only.also john eustace coming on loan till end of season .d pugh rachbuka and nunez to be offloaded today .take over will also be on monday3rd sept 2012 .this news comes from avery hot sorce.

So hope this is true, would be brilliant for tomorrow

Hot Sauce more like Brown Sauce lol

Haha you sure about that mate? beckfords signed for huddersfield on loan. silly little leeds boys

Haha absaloutee brown saucee

Why waste your time posting s**t

Beckford hasnt gone town yet persons

Silly town fans beckford hasnt joined your lot he is only intrested in a move back to leeds

Beckford was at the john smiths stadium all night waiting to sign clever clogs. Only interested in a move back to leeds? Doesnt sound like it flower

Town agreed terms with him petal, leicester pulled out 5 minutes before the deadline, not giving us time to sign anyone else. Looks like you got that one wrong. See you 1st of December little fanboys. UTT.

Why would Beckford want to go to Huddersfield your a non entity small town club with small minded fans MOT



31 Aug 2012 17:56:05
stoke looking to sell whelan to wolves to pay for charlie adam.



31 Aug 2012 17:46:41
Bournemouth have completed the signing of highly rated Dutch midfielder Lorenzo Davids cousin of Edger Davids. source- AFC Bournemouth club website

Transfer window now closed with davids and buchel the only signings for bournemouth. Unless there is another signing completed under the radar my thoughts are that we have development goalkeeper and crooked free agent player, he could be useful and at least Pugh has not gone!



31 Aug 2012 17:49:03
Just seen Dobbie come out of Blackpool ground hope pool have brought him and not just loaned him again

No, he's gone. Ollie not around and as he has changed his mobile number, the guy couldn't contact him and said "**** this for a game of soldiers, I'm away!" {Ed003's Note - Of course he is not around he is in a hotel in Leicester}

Doubt it he as signed for brighton

Swansea accepted the bid didn't they?

According to report Brighton & hove Albion are close to signing Dobbie looks like Blackpool couldn't agree personal terms. Dobbie silly if goes to Brighton as they won't get promoted but the pool will. UTP

Pool will not go up its a lomg season and you will start to fall apart

Same reason he hasnt signed for Burnley too

Same reason he hasnt signed for Burnley too

Lies. why bother wasting your time making up utter rubbish? brighton have just signed him on a three year deal and as a blackpool fan i am very annoyed about this, we should have been the ones to sign him



31 Aug 2012 17:48:52
Norwich are in talks with f campbell and are following up one other poss signing.

Norwich look like they are doing nothing.We need to sign a quality striker.

Sunderland have admitted a tenative approach was made just before transfer deadline day (no mention of who) O'Neil is on record as saying that he would not want to be short on cover for his strikers so presumably they were not ready to sell Campbell yet unless a huge offer came in (No chance from Norwich). Probably it makes sense for Norwich to sit it out and let the lads contract run down as he only has a year to go and maybe try again in the next window assuming Sunderland have a replacement lined up. If indeed it was Norwich and not someone else who made the "tentative enquiry". There is still the question of wages to be addressed etc but surely the lad wants to be playing. So this one is a very long way from a signing but it may be one for January.

Sunderland have signed McFadden. This means that Campbell could move in January.



31 Aug 2012 17:40:11
Looks like the signing of Monk is off as Del has left Ashton Gate already for Saturdays away match



31 Aug 2012 17:39:36

31 Aug 2012 17:36:19
ROONEY is on the move Luke Rooney that is, from Swindon to Southend loan until January as his chances are limited

Will that move be done when the loan market reopens pal? please say its true really want him

Ritchie not playing at Preston today, he is off to Wolves on loan as soon as the window opens again, fallen out with PdC.

Ritchie had a hamstring injury^

Ritchie was injured 2day with a thigh strain.... NOTTING ELSE

Ritchie signed a new Swindon contract so he's not going to Wolves. Bournemouth or anywhere else.



31 Aug 2012 17:34:54
swindon town have accepted a 1.75million bid from Wolves for midfielder Matt ritchie, it will rise to 2.2 million on appearances and Wolves being promoted.

No. No hes not.

31 Aug 2012 15:48:17
Matt Fish poised to join Charlton from Gillingham.

A fee was agreed only if solly went to west ham, he isn't and we have Wilson as cover so it isn't happening

Just goes to show how much we all think we know

We have kept our squad intact, despite interest from clubs for a couple of our players and the lure of bringing in money. Instead we have added a couple of decent signings ourselves and despite rumours of being cash strapped, Charlton have shown their intentions to move onwards and upwards. Come on you reds!

Matt fish to charlton thats just made my day get real he's only just good enough for div 2 and i wonder that sometimes lol gills supporter

No one even bid for Solly, just shows :D

David wright to join from palace

rumours going round norwich is that a.villa have bid £7m for grant holt.

Troll on...

Good cant wait to get rid of holt and bring in a decent striker. 7mil is an awesome deal

All too quiet from Norwich today!

Holt saga finished ages ago bud He is at Norwich to stay.

Oh yeah, good one, So he signs a 3 year contract in the summer and plays 2 games. At least use your imagination if you are just making stuff up. You should be concertrating more on how Ipswich are going to avoid another 6-0 drubbing in the next game.

Villa have signed Benteke, so relax. GH is going nowhere!

Love this to be true. If not just wait and see him get fatter and score diddly squat



31 Aug 2012 15:35:19
This is 100% true for Derby County
Dont listen to the rubbish.

if liverpool dont buy dempsey for fulhams asking price Arsenal will try to sign him using Arshavin as bait................ heard it in the grape vine

Dempsey is well overated,why all the fuss.

Arsenal bought noone infact we wasted any chance of releasing 6 or 7 poor players taking a loss and either promoting or buy some decent players, basically we sell every year and buy every other year. afc are not the team i grew up supporting, we dont give youth a chance, lansbury, bartley, brislen-hall, sidwell, i could go on but it's too painfull we are building ourself to be the tottenham than we used to laugh about, fair enough we got our stadium but what has it done for us, no atmosphere, a team of nobodies and a youth set up ignored. Aneke, Boatang, Afobe, Eastmond, Henderson and watt all should be thrown into the first XI set up and play like at every other club but they just rot in the depths of london colney never seeing an epl match



31 Aug 2012 16:04:40

Southampton close in on Gaston Ramirez

The Premier League new boys are moving ever closer to the huge coup, with manager Nigel Adkins revealing that "all being well" the Bologna winger will become a Saints player

51 mins ago on

Signed and sealed 5 mins ago .!!At last

Signed!! yes!! get in

I,m suprised no-one else read about Liverpool& Blackpool after Rickie Lambert,we cannopt afford any more of our top players to go,and when you get knew players it takes time for them to bond together and play as a team,so i hope Management know what they are doing..............

I think we are going to get relegated. Lack of defensive cover. Buying forwards from zambia untried and letting shatp go is ridiculous. WEhy did we buy him in the first place. give him a proper chance. We are week at left back and in the centre halk position.Adkinds has been naive in the market



31 Aug 2012 16:02:11

31 Aug 2012 15:37:06
The move for Daniel Sturridge is apparently a better option than a move for Clint Dempsey due to the age of Dempsey for Liverpool.
Dempsey will apparently wait until closer the transfer deadline though before contract talks start with Aston Villa as part of a £7m transfer.
Christian Benteke though seems set to join Aston Villa for £10.6m. Villa could have a strike force of Bent,Dempsey & Benteke available for Sunday's clash with Newcastle United.

Have it from a VERY good source that Shrewsbury Town are planning a very late raid on Bristol Rovers - taking three of their first team players to the new meadow.

Potential investors in Rovers new stadium are extremely worried about the possibility of the club dropping to the Conference this season and have warned the board to start getting serious about on-field matters.

It's just a couple of bad seasons that's all we are underachieving at the mo Shrewsbury will only ever be league one where as we expect more not that long ago we kicked your butts in play off final and yes we took over 45000 with us pretty much had all sides of stadium so don't call us small club when you know we are bigger look at what players have come and gone at the moment you are a better team but not a bigger club Wigan struggle to get 25000 fans and are prem but Leeds get 30000 in championship who are the bigger club

We will be in the championship again and we have bigger ambitions.

Reputation and past glories count for nothing, look at the example you quoted, wigan vs leeds. It'll be a long time before leeds grace the premiership, that's for sure!

If u have a look shrewsbury are smaller but we have home born Number 1 JOEHART plus shrews have had better results than rovers. Example arsenal 3-1 loss but out played them for most of the game. Everton and derby swansea. what good results have te rovers got??

No, I mean that shrewsbury will be in the championship again.

Shrewsbury share the same ambitions as Bristol Rovers - both want to get to the Championship. Our chairman and manager have stated that on numerous occasions. Do your research next time. Also, attendance isn't all that determines your club's size. It's also recent success, ground size, finance... Bristol Rovers are by no means a "big club". Neither are Shrewsbury. You've also got to remember that Bristol is a city - Shrewsbury is a town.

That 2007 play off final could be repeated over and over again, and shrewsbury would now win every time,

2007Rovers had a good day whilst Shrewsbury had no Ben Davies and the 3rd goal came when the goal keeper went foreward. Shrewsbury are currently a better team

Wembley wenbley were the famous bristol rovers and we won at wembley
doesnt matter about now it was then and we won!!

Derby County's James Bailey has agreed terms with fellow championship side Bristol City



31 Aug 2012 15:13:47
Charlton have expressed interest in free agent Nigel Reo-Coker also Emile Heskey has been spotted at the training ground

It was Jackson and hamer taking a picture of Leon corts back of the head saying it was heskey, you're so gullible it's unreal

Anyone in the Championship would be interested in Nigel but, this was a misconstrood answer from Chris Powell. He said he'd look into it as a joke on the reporter who falsely claimed to have pointed CP towards Ricardo Fuller.

Heskey was a joke by the Charlton players.

Would love both but doubt they will happen.

Sammy Clingan Done Deal Heard From A reliable source inside the game {Ed039's Note - Yes, to who?)



31 Aug 2012 15:12:05
Stoke are still keen on Huddlestone despite his failed medical, they are negotiating with an edited agreement with Spurs. N'zonzi is on Stoke's radar but looks more likely to be going to Everton at the moment. Maurice Edu's deal to Stoke is completed, the club are finalising the signing. Reto Ziegler's agent is in talks with Stoke after a fee was agreed with Juventus

I didn't know we have agreed a fee for Reto Ziegler.

Hope a deal can be made with huddlestone looks likely whelan going to wolves fee there is 2mil. WBA are in talks with popov why did ours break down personally i think popov would be better than ziegler but olsson better than both.

Popov didn't get a work permit, I've heard that Whelan is on the move for around 2-3million

Word on the grapevine is that a Mr Harry Redknapp is being lined up as the next Ipswich manager as Marcus Evans has run out of patience with Paul Jewell. He will also be given a decent amount of funds as well...

Haha, yeah that sounds likely. Why would Marcus Evans just allow Jewell to spend over 1.5 million if he's going to get the sack?

Heard the same. Harry is a good friend and golfing buddy of Evans and will be offered the job with Jewell's contract almost up. Harry will be on a generous bonus if he can take Ipswich to the premier league.

That would be the first time in along time that I would become excited for Ipswich!

Harry at itfc, that would be just fantastic.
Jewell out. He can even sign an autograph let alone a decent player!

Taylor signed on redknaps recommendation

Harry will have matt holland as number 2 as a view to take over as club manager.

And then we wake up and realise its cleggless and jewell and we have no defenders.

I know that Harry is a good friend of evens .i think that jewell will stay to end of season then not be offered a new contract if Ipswich finish like last season.but could Ipswich afford Harry's wage demands I really hope so as I think Harry is a top man

Harry loves Poole in Dorset, Ipswich is miles from there I can not see it! All the same would love it to happen...

Any truth to redknapp rumour would be great

And his dog is the richest in the world !!!

HR would want 30k a week plus according to sources plus add ons wont happen

Well evans paid Roy keane 35k a week !



31 Aug 2012 14:32:52

It's Deadline Day, and that can only mean one thing... time for the latest news from 'The Source'.

Latest news coming out of the Jakeman's Stadium is The Pilgrims are set to rekindle their interest in former target Alec Robinson.

Robinson had previously been a target for Pilgrims manager Jason Lee during last year's January transfer window after impressive spells at a fleet of non-league clubs, and now 'Big Jas' is all set to bag his man.

That's all for now, keep it here for more news from... 'The Source'.

Good player, really fit.

Michael Chopra has been seen around Southampton today and will be heading to St. Marys to discuss a deal later this afternoon.

Current deals being worked on involving Derby County.
Ben Davies - Doncaster
James Bailey - Crystal Palace
Conor Doyle - Walsall (Loan)

IN -
Nick Montgomery - Sheff Utd

I think all of these are strong possibilities...clough wants rid of Davies and Bailey and wants an experienced cm which Montgomery is, most unlikely is Doyle out on loan




31 Aug 2012 14:34:54
Theo Robinson could be on his way out. Derby County have just this second accepted a £1.25m bid from Peteborough. Also heard that Davies his on his way to Notts County. Derby are now planning to make a move for a striker in the SPL.

Players out are james bailey and Ben davies.Players in are sammy clingan and david Templeton



31 Aug 2012 14:25:05
Liverpool will not have any bid accepted by Fulham unless its a minimum of £7m.
If a Kop move doesn't materialize for Dempsey, he'll try and clinch a late market move to Aston Villa (in a deal worth £7m).
The move Villa believe will help them in landing Christian Benteke from Genk who are trying to force Villa's hand to pay the £15m they expect but after being knocked out of the Champions League could be forced to sell Benteke to Villa.



31 Aug 2012 14:24:27
ive heard that giles barnes and david james are heading to bournemouth is there any truth in this?


Surely thats Matt Ritchie, not David James (although they have very similar physiques)

Lorenzo David's has signed for Bournemouth, cousins with Edgar

31 Aug 2012 14:24:25

Millwall are getting Harry Kane back on a season long loan, outside the ground and he has just pulled up! COYL!

Bull - Kane is defo at training with spurs - how do i know - i am there too!

He would be at the training ground not The Den why chat rubbish?

I think it could be possible!,Spurs have signed Adabeyour & D'Foe has signed for 3yrs again also! WAIT & SEE!!

Did he go in the ground

Is this true !!

Is this true? Who knows! Can't see it! A Wind up I should imagine!!

There is no chance of this happening at all!

No chance, signed for norwich city on a season long loan

Well Kenny no permanent signings as we are all told that you are over your budget!!! OK fair enough if that is the case! But I 'REALLY DO HOPE' that you do get a decent striker on loan??? PLEASE!!!! Don't forget that you could injured/suspended Players?



31 Aug 2012 14:13:35
Peterborough Utd have had a bid accepted for Kane Ferdinand, who is in P'boro this afternoion to discuss terms. George Boyd has again snubbed Ipswich but they will attempt to get him on loan with a view to a permanent deal in January

Ipswich are closing in on signing Connor Wickham on loan a source close to the Black Cats has revealed.

While a central defender said to be closing in on a £1,000,000 deal is Seb Hines from Middlesborough

What a joke 1m for Seb Hines. I think you should start the bidding at least 3million. He has just signed a long term contract with Boro and is very highly rated by Mogga. Jog on



31 Aug 2012 13:53:42

This could be a very good signing if your a southampton fan, The Saints have also Landed Gaston Ramirez for a fee to be believed around the £11.4 million mark, Da silva was one of our best last year and ill be sad to see him go.

Apparently Bristol City could be moving in for Goodwillie either permanently or on loan from Blackburn as it seems clearer that Pitman will be on his way to Burnley. If Pitman goes on loan then Goodwillie will come in on loan and the same for if they are both purchases.

Don't need Badwilly, even if Pitman goes...

What's happening with DJ Campbell and Akos Buzsacky?

News just in: Derby have accepted an offer of £500,000 for James Bailey from Crystal Palace. Bailey has gone down to meet their representatives now. Ben Davies is also on his way after the Rams have accepted a £250,000 bid from both Doncaster and Notts County. My sources have also lead me to believe that there has been a bid for a third unnamed player.

That has to be full of lies, am sure Notts have no wage budget for the wages Ben would want now, nor would they spend that much

According to a Brighton fan page on , Bothroyd's black land rover with the number plate J80 RYD has been seen by fans outside the AMEX stadium.

Heard this to

Wow...must be the fastest car in the world as also been seen at hillsborough today too!

Rubbish - He signed 6 month deal at Sheff Wed ! Gus has to pull something out of the bag by 11pm ! Im sure he has hi targets and they are progressing !

I have a feeling now its 18:30 that there will be no more deals today. We can though still secure free transfers! Shame if I am right, as like most I guess, excited by the Bothroyd rumours.

He just signed for wednesday on a loan

Don't think so as he's signed on loan with Sheffield Wednesday

He has gone to sheffield wednesday

He's gone to sheffield wednesday

Gone to wednesday

Zamora is in Brighton...have heard from valid source that loan deal for six months is possible, however need to pay large % of wages and ultimate decision is with QPR

I am eating my words about no new signings! Dobbie, o yes!

Perhaps he was trying to park for the 14th, have you seen the parking at the amex!!!
Was there an echo on here, saying gone to Wednesday???

Where's he gone ?

Try spelling your words before eating them



31 Aug 2012 13:11:39
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has confirmed that he will not be doing any business on transfer deadline day.

Swansea's interest in Marvin Emnes has cooled, so Boro will look to add two loan players which they can do after the 31st August 2012.

One will be a defender and the other will possibly be a striker or attacking midfielder.

Agent 007.5

We missed owt on maynard 4 2.5 we have no proven striker in champo emnes i would no be botherd if he went .boro fan

Maynard is originally from Bristol and wanted to be back closer to that area which is why he went to Cardiff.

Boro should have gone for Jay Bothroyd. He's experienced in the championship, holds the ball up well and more importantly can score at this level.

Am a bit miffed that we didn't add to our squad.

Gorden Strachen ruined this club with McManus, McDonald and Thompson. Stupid wages on average players!! We'll be lucky if we get 10 games from Thompson.

Totally agree with u mate about being miffed as to no further signings especially as last season our problems were lack of goals n we have not solved this problems at all! 4mil for bennett which mogga was banging on he was gonna spend n then transfer window deadline comes n moggas in bed by 7:30 n also team picked against millwall completely baffled me?? What gets to me most is u see everybody around us buying proven championship players without talking of promotion n then boro talking promotion n spending 500k in the full window n IMHO (not a chance this season) gonna be away form mate! U agree?

I honestly think a top eight finish at best. Losing Rhys is a huge blow, but there is proven championship players put there that Boro could have and should have signed. Our first eleven is a decent side, however at Boro we never seem to get our first eleven on the pitch at the same time.

The club is crippled financially. Thompson should retire. He's always injured. I don't know how he can look at himself earning high wages and never being on the pitch earning them.

Footballers alway say that they want to play, yet we have two players that are on ridiculous wages in McManus and McDonald. They have been told that they are not going to play. So they are happy to earn their large salary and doing nothing.

As much as I love Steve Gibson. Some of his decisions for this club have made me gasp! How could he have allowed a rookie manager (gareth Southgate) mange a premiership club with no experience at all. What happend he sold our best players and replaced them with unheard of players and surprise surprise - we get relegated! Next he brings in Gordan Strachen who's record with managing clubs in England is awful. He pays silly money and silly wages for average and I mean very average championship players.

Whilst Gibson has got it right in bringing Mowbray in, he MUST support him. Two proven strikers surely is a must for any club wanting to get promotion!!

At the moment with look like a club with all the gear, but no idea.

Rant over

I am so glad that middlesbro lost to a so called run of the mill team like Millwall! Learn how to put the ball in the net?

Nice rant! Couldn't have summed it up any better than that

Boro chairman, boro manager and half the squad from middlesbrough or been brought through the academy, thats whats great about our club. The things that arent great about our club arent from middlesbrough!

Looks like Middlesbrough will have to replace Carayol soon, two good games then six sat on the bench,good player but injured 80% of the time,check it out,been like it at every one of the numerous clubs he has been at so far,mind you that may take a while he's had so many.Chip on the shoulder springs to mind.



31 Aug 2012 13:06:27

celtic close to signing johnny russel from dundee united for 3.5 million on a 4 years deal

Great prospect,,,,, but 3.5mil? No chance.
2 mil max and that would include add -ons if need be!


Dundee it'd have today said no less than 2 million therefore seems strange for Celtic to bid 3.5?

3.5 make it more realistic person............

3.5 is a bit over priced in my opinion. 2 million and I am more likely to believe you



31 Aug 2012 12:56:43
Newcastle United to make £16 million bid for Celtic pair Gary Hooper & Victor Wanyama.

Everton to make £7 million bid for Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew.

I heard Mulgrew is definitely away. So much for winning the Champions League. I'm raging about this!!

Am pyoor raging an that. Cannae believe this. I'll no be back at Parkhead if this happens.

Newcastle won't spend 16 pence today never mind 16 million. Cabaye and tiote to leave

Now, why would Celtic let go their double player of the year from last season? Mulgrew going nowhere, he is a Celtic boy through and through and he will go on to become a legend at Celtic. If Newcastle can afford to offer, 25million for Hooper and Wanyama then go for it. Please dont think you are gettting the Golden Boot winner and the hottest prospect in Scotland for that paltry amount, would want very near the 16 million for Wanyama alone.

No chance of Mulgrew leaving and i am assuming you mean 16 million each for Hooper and Wanyama



31 Aug 2012 12:52:58
Huddersfield town set to sign beckford either loan or permanent depending on what agreement can be reached . Source is radio Leeds.

Grayson needs to hold out on this one, nobody else is gonna pay big bucks for Beckford as he's failed at Everton and been ordinary at Leicester......Grayson will hope he's the only one who can get best out of him as he did at Leeds

Need to hold hope that Grayson can do the wheeling'n'dealing to bring in Russell/Beckford and/or Church

LCFC overloaded with strikers. If they pull in Ivan Stoyanov aswell Beckford will be third choice at Leicester and they'll want rid of his wages. Evening buy for Grayson

Beckford says no to huddersfield wants aloan move back to his be lovered leedsutd just been told strong sorce at er

No mate Leeds or nothing

We dont want can have him...

According to reports close to the Essex club Ipswich Town are stepping up their interest in Colchester United defender Magnus Okuonghae and are looking to pay around £650,000 for his services.

Why didn't they sign him in the summer when he was on a Bosman?

Dj campbell off to the palace

This has been denied by the palace manager in local press



31 Aug 2012 11:44:26
Huddersfield Town to bring in Harry Kewell ona pay as you play basis until the end of the season, with a view to a further year. Beckford looking like a loan deal rather than a permanent move due to his complicated contract with LCFC



31 Aug 2012 11:41:11
Taylor an Boyd of peterbrough along with ranger Newcastle and Barkley of everton set to sign for Sheffield Wednesday

Rather unlikely for Taylor seeing as he is now an Ipswich player

Taylor signed for Ipswich on Thursday evening

Think ur bit behind Paul Taylor is a tractor boy

Ithink he means martin Taylor from watford



31 Aug 2012 12:09:31
Blackpool Fc strongly linked with
signing Stephen Dobbie, DJ Campbell,
Jason Puncheon and Frazier Campbell.
Puncheon, DJ and Dobbie have all
previously had spells at the club.

Puncheon? Ha! After what your lot pulled with Phillips not a chance.

To sign Puncheon, Cortese will need to speak to your Chairman.
It will not happen, NC changed his mobile number!

We don't want Puncheon anymore.....unreasonable Sotton kept hold of him too long and never played him to punish him.......sad because now noone wants him and they can't offload him

Can't see anything happening at Bloomfiled road today....would've liked to have seen Dobs and DJ upfront for us though



31 Aug 2012 12:01:07
Swindon sign Bessone ona free from Swansea



31 Aug 2012 12:00:08
Just over heard Joe Garner Watford in Starbucks talking on his mobile about an offer from a northern club, said he really wanted the move and that he did not think he has a chance of breaking back in to the team because of the quality of the new guys.

Please Please let this be true

Poor buy in the first place tbf
Good luck joe but not good enough in this league. Needs to build up for a start.

Must have fallen through then or maybe a loan



31 Aug 2012 11:58:19
Carl Piergianni who failed to complete the deadline to sign a new contract at Stockport and desperately wants the club to reconsider it, has received interest from Coventry City.



31 Aug 2012 11:57:40
notts county will not sign eny players
on deadline day reason why because
all transfer targets got better offers
from other clubs.

I can understand this, I am sure I heard that all of the wage budget had been soaked up through the other siginings



31 Aug 2012 11:53:12
Liverpool to sign Dempsey and farfan



31 Aug 2012 11:51:28
Any Stockport rumours in or out? Thank you

Its rumored that they are still in existence but beyond that couldn't say, doubt if they could afford to sign anybody. They're in the wilderness well and truly. Anybody sad ?



31 Aug 2012 11:49:58
Crystal Palace have had a £900,000 bid for George Boyd accepted as Dougie Freedman tries to build a squad for the season.

Palace cannot afford such a fee for one player

Would like to see Boyd at Palace seeing he's a Palace fan, it would piss my ex off a treat as she's a posh fan. I'm crossing my fingers this it true seeing he's tunred down a move to Ipswitch. I'd be straight down to London Rd asking the Posh shop to put Boyd on my palace shirt lmao.

No chance with Boyd unfortunately, Palace only signing loan and out of contract players – Palace fan since 1974



31 Aug 2012 11:49:00
Stephen Quinn just moved from Sheffield United to Hull City, three year deal, fee undisclosed.

31 Aug 2012 11:39:12
Sheffield Wednesdays Gary madine set to sign for Huddersfield in record buy!!

Is this just a wednesdayite trying to stir something up?

SWFC paid 800k for him. Scored a few goals at div1 level not sure he's the ideal man for Town

God strewth I hope not!!not what we need in our formation this season.



31 Aug 2012 11:37:36
Billy sharp to nottingham forest along with kane ferdinand. then forest have done.

Forest better make a bid then. Posh made a combined offer of 200k for Hall and Ferdinand this morning, and will be laughed out of town by SUFC

200k does sound laughable tbh



31 Aug 2012 11:27:14
Stevenage close to a deal to get Ramon Nunez on loan from leads



31 Aug 2012 11:26:42
Celtic,Huddlesfield,Sheffield Wed and
Derby County have all made
850k bids for johnny russell after he
asked to leave.

Think Celtic is out of the question unless they outbid every English club interested in him

Derby haven't got 850k to offer and nigel clough has already stated no one will be signing for derby, only leaving

^Derby have just sold James Bailey to crystal palace and Ben davies to doncaster theres your funds.

Derby will have 850k if B Davies (250k) and Bailey (600k) get sold

Huddersfield have had bids turned down for Russell and winger



31 Aug 2012 11:25:15
Have just seen Hulk at Gatwick Airport... Chelsea or Tottenham...

He was on flight TP334

No you haven't so stop lying, They wont pay the asking price.

Does he still turn green and burst his shirt open ?

Was he green in colour fat chance

He is in oporto having lunch right now. its a lie

Was he turning green ? And angry



31 Aug 2012 11:21:39
Pierre Webo to WBA

Wouldn't be deadline day without that one would it? ;-)



31 Aug 2012 11:21:15
Southampton to make one last ditch attempt to get Kana biyik.

We will be the whipping boys of the premier league ..i can not believe we let so many players go to other clubs when we clearly have known we needed to strengthen the squad since that May day when we got promoted .
Sooooooooo Disrespectful to us as fans , we will have to pay top dollar to watch them this season yet they have not invested in the squad so as to give ourselves a chance of competing .
Humiliation awaits us .

To the person who says it will be humilIaton to watch this double promoted team play in the premier league. It is much better than whatching a team getting relegated to league two. It will be tough this year but I am sure we will have enough about us to stay in this league, and with a few additions over the coming hours we may reach mid table.



31 Aug 2012 11:20:08

Huddersfield in the running for
beckford (loan) and looking for
another striker maybe going to sign
Jhonny russel and gary mackay steven
and maybe even in and going to sign
Adam hammil

Not hammill, but the rest sounds ok, but i think GMS is injured? we might put an ambitious offer in for austin aswell.

Hopefully we'll get all four



31 Aug 2012 10:54:42
Huddersfield could be about to ask Arsenal to trigger a return clause in Benik Afobe's loan to Bolton. Then offer cash up front with clauses to follow.

Not possible in next few hours,
or is it??

Load of rubbish one player can't go to 2 teams in the space of the same transfer windows! Afobe staying at Bolton!
Bolton couldn't loan a player last season because of the same rule!



31 Aug 2012 10:47:40
Calvin Zola rumoured to be talking to Crystal Palace.

I heard this too from a mate who works at Selhurst

No way on earth. he`s not championship quality.

Lee Croft Derby
James Bailey Derby
Steve Harper Newcastle
Ashley Grimes Rochdale
Lee Williamson Sheff Utd
Liam Noble Carlise
Sam Saunders Brentford
Harry Forrester Brentford

Lee croft is already at oldham!

Williamson already been released by blades - on month contract at pompey. Good grief, know some facts before spouting rubbish!

Williamson is on a 1month contract at pompey

There is no club "Bristol" - its Bristol City!!

No chance on saundres

Its also in the BC that hills trying to bring a midfielder in today, get yr facts pal

Harry Forrester or Sam Saunders on loan?!?! You've got ZERO chance... FACT! Unless you buy them which will cost you money you don't have!

Nigel clough wants to sell bailey not
Loan him

Croft is on a season long loan at oldham so you got thatw rong haven't you.



31 Aug 2012 10:43:46
Huddersfield are to bring in 3 players on deadline day jermaine beckford-season long loan, adam hammill -500-650k and johnny russel for 850k as he has asked to leave dundee this morning UTT

Would be a good couple of days business if true

All beckford rumours are rubbish theyre intrested but.pearson.wont loan or sell.him!

Didnt dundee say they will sell russell if their 2million price was met?



31 Aug 2012 10:35:30
Clint Dempsey looks set to join Aston Villa in a £7m deal.
Christian Benteke also seems likely to join Villa before the deadline for a rumoured £6m after he refused to train.

He has rejected the offer

Dempsey holding out fot Liverpool

Dempsey turned villa down hoping for liverpool move

Correction: Dempsey has NOT rejected Aston Villa yet he IS holding out for a move to the Kop.

plymouth will today complete the
signing of former player liam dickinsion
on a 1 year deal, the striker scored 12
goals in 37 games for southend last

Liam will be joining Port Vale this season.

Alex mcdonald is set to retun to home park once again in the next hour

It is thought he will join on emrgency loan until october but will probaly have loan deal renewed (alex mcdonald)

Argyle have signed Alex McDonald until october

Liam dickinsion deal now depends on a striker leaving a few teams intrested in chadwick and feeney(somehow)

Herofored to complete signing of feeney in next hour!



31 Aug 2012 10:06:01
Dean Hammond returning to Brighton from Southampton. Deal to be announced at 1100hrs to day

I hope not, i think it will be a shame to forget the players that got us where we are today without even giving them a game in the PL.

That didn't happen then

Rubbish gone to Charlton

Its 14:47 no deal! BBC announce Charlton his likely destination

So you meant 11pm! Lol! Nice spot!

Clearly rubbish is it?

That really didn't happen did it !

Oh yea of little faith., I told you all that Hammond was returning and no one believed me

Gutted about this one, he's not fit to wear the shirt. Claims he'll win the fans over, but he he will have to do a hell of a lot to do that. Some of us have long memories.

Well done on the Hammond story.



31 Aug 2012 10:05:19
Aston Villa are going to make a late bid for Liam Trotter at Millwall.

Have also agreed a fee with Fulham for Clint Dempsey in the last few minutes

Trotter is going nowhere! Unless anyone has got 3M?

So you wouldn't take 1.5/2m for a player who is out of contract next season. Good thing your not the manager.

Dempsey has turned down aston villa, haha

For a player that has asked for a new contract chats right 3 million no less

Shows where your club is when your going for our players villas days are over be seeing you in the championship next season



31 Aug 2012 09:44:27
Swansea are targeting Wilfried Zaha as a replacement for Scott Sinclair, although palace chiefs are looking for a 10m bid which could prove to be a stumbling block.

Signed Pablo hernandez as a replacement for Sinclair. Stupid rumour.

Higginbotham is way to good for carlise- if town want him out we'd gladly take him back (Barnsley)



31 Aug 2012 09:26:42
Michael Owen will consider a move to the Championship if he receives no offers from the Premier League by 4pm.

Too greedy to play in Championship.....unless somebody wants to pay big wages

Owen is holding out for an offer from everton- has several offers on table just now from 3 championship clubs, & celtic (he will not go overseas)
With chapions league qualification secured his prefered option is celtic if everton deal falls through- dermott desmond will subsidise 50% of wages the way he did for keane (and the way he does for trappatoni).
FACT- from horses mouth

Owen will end up at Yeovil - they have a history of signing old crocks.

All these people talking about signing in transfer window can't a player be signed if he's out of contract and free agent outside window {Ed003's Note - yep}

Why 4pm? He is a free agent & can be signed anytime, the Transfer Window is irrelevant to him or clubs wanting to sign him.

He said he wanted to find a club before the en of the transfer window

Hes going huddersfield

Nope hes going to stoke city

Nobody wants him so he's going to have to swallow his pride & join a lower league club... & I for one will be laughing.



31 Aug 2012 09:17:02
Adam hammill has arrived at oakwell this morning ahead of £500k move from wolves.

He's going to the galpharm

Southampton about to blow the doors off

Del Pierro
Kaka (loan)
And a player from Barca b

Outs / loans
De Ridder

Kaka?! come off it

Del Pierro will go to Oz, there is no chance in hell of getting Kaka, Ramirez looks possible

If only . . . but dream on!

Haha U had me til kaka

Kaka- return loan to milan

Yeah i heard they were about to blow the doors off, by offering michael cane a contract, loving the deadline day rumours, coyr

Of course they are. All of that rubbish will definately come true.

Stay aff the glue pal it's no even 12 o'clock yet

Yet more outlandish claims
I mean del piero,a possibility
But kaka , now your dreaming

Kaka to Saints - best rumour ever

Lol kaka ha

Del Piero is off to Sydney FC

Del piero has signed for sydney fc

More dribble as if kaka wud join saints dream on whoever sent this

Got to love your optimism! kaka to saints did make me chuckle although I would love to see him in a saints shirt!

Kaka is useless .
hes over his best ,lazy injury ridden and on 12 million a year . good one .
with all the movement gone on today ..Southampton are doomed .we have been inept getting players in ..the management are happy to go back down with the sky money .
doomed -with a hiding to come frm Man u on sunday .

As a saints fan I've heard a few funny rumours, but kaka tops the list ha im crying

No time left



31 Aug 2012 09:09:35
CMS off to Norwich- Steve Morrison coming the other way

NO CHANCE - we need to add a striker, not swap - anyway cms is NOT a target for Norwich..................FACT.

Ha dream on Brighton fan more likely Chris Martin going the other way

Mackail smith?! Please no!! Would rather save our money for jan and a big signing then if needed!!

A 10 prem goals last season isn't worth a 10 champ goals. if Morison goes the other way, Norwich would expect money + Smith



31 Aug 2012 09:08:32
Man city bid £27million for pedro

Alves is floating around Dubai getting rich

That was last seasons rumour, and it didn't happen then

What! you gotta be kidding me!



31 Aug 2012 08:33:49
Swansea outs.

Leroy Lita- Crystal Palace
Curtis Obeng- Fleetwood
Bessone- Swindon
Orlandi- Brighton

other possibilities are

Dobbie- Bristol City/ Middleboro or Burnley
Monk- Bristol City
Moore- Blackburn
Gower- Charlton

Think Dobbie is asking for too much money for Boro. I know he was good in Harry Potter but he needs to get real.

Fingers crossed

I hope we get monk city need a defender

Monk has a back injury so wont be leaving

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

Until january actually

Swansea have turned down an offer from Blackburn for Luke Moore. He's had a decent start to the season but is not premiership quality. Probably suited to a Cardiff type of team....



31 Aug 2012 08:28:59
Dutch under 21 Jerson Carbal on his to Swansea for a fee of 1.25 million... The young Striker/Winger has been eyed up by a host of premiership club and has decided to join the Swans because their style of play.

Huddersfield to bid for Bristol City's Brett Pitman and ex Terrier Jon Stead

Cant see you getting stead,

We DO NOT WANT Stead. That's all in the past and he's not needed

Town have much bigger plans than Jon Stead, plus he's fully integrated at City, doubt he'd want to leave at the moment

Stead is staying at city and he's happy at the club



31 Aug 2012 07:15:40
Preston to finally sign Stuart beavon after Wycombe give in.

Untrue cant agree a fee on website

Not true wycombe have rejected north ends offer , anyway this is a guy who has had i good season and is 28 hardly a proven track record

Turned Preston down in favour of Gillingham

The gills could not afford what WW'S are asking for! Anyway one good season 28 goals,not good enough! Stay in League 2!

Danny Kedwell would be a better bet than Beavon 109 goals in 247 app: for 4 different clubs

Just seen Micheal Owen in a car outside deepdale!

Stuart beavon is havin medical at notts county and will sign within the next hour.

Would not be surprised if he went notts county and i also heard a rumour about owen and but unfortunately i think it was made up

Would not be surprised if he went notts county and i also heard a rumour about owen and but unfortunately i think it was made up

J.Spearing Liverpool-Wolves loan

A.Cunnington Tamworth-Walsall £20,000

L.Barnett Norwich- Birmingham loan

J.Taylor Reading-Walsall loan

T.Drage Tromso (Norway)- Wolves loan

Spearing going to bolton

What nathan redmond is worth 10 million and birmingham have turned down a 6 million offer from southamton they want 18 million

Few of them wrong already - this is an accumulation of guesses?

I will say this for the last time matt phillips is going nowhere

Richardson looks like hes goin fulham
doyle said he is stayin at wolves
birmingham wont sell redmond or butland
spearing is having medical at bolton

M Phillips not happnin.

Leon Barnett is going nowhere buddy he has booked his place in first team after the QPR game

Blackpool rejected 6,000,000 from Southampton but 4,000,000 is enough for Aston villa well done probably spent a while making up this rubbish.

Lol, Richardson just signed for fulham, I honestly don't know where you get your rumours? FIFA?

Matt Phillips is staying

Wrong richardson has gone to fulham
and jay spering has gone to bolton
and leon barrnett will not be going after the performace he put n on saterday

Spearing went to Bolton so stop guessing.

Spearing signed 4 bolton and taylor 2 walsall dow think so we always linked with people we ay gna get example izale mcleod

Nathan Redmond worth 18 mill? Is that a wind-up. I'm a Blues fan and would defo take 3 for him. Massively over-rated and has got an appauling attitude.

Not a single one was correct



31 Aug 2012 07:09:55

31 Aug 2012 04:44:30
Chris Hughton hopes to sign Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani for Norwich City before the window slams shut later today
The player is set to fly into England today to hold talks

Any truth in this!!

Would be a brilliant signing

Would be good but it is unlikely as he has no experience in British football- something every other Norich City signing has had. So this signing would represent a change in our transfer strategy if we went ahead. Incidentally Faser Cambell has a better hit rate than this lad in the Belgium league 60% vs 50% and Fraser has experience in the British leagues.



31 Aug 2012 04:23:43

There are also rumours that watford are close to completing the deals of Cristian Battocchio
Jean-Alain Fanchone and Gabriele Angella

Is there not a limit to the number of loan players allowed in a matchday squad?

No because these players are coming from a foriegn club outside from the FA. The FA dont give a limit when your loaning players from outside england

Battocchio confirmed with option to buy at end, no limit on international loans, vincenzo iaquinta rejected a move to watford


They are not considered loan transfers. International loans are considered as permanent transfers so Watford can have the entire match day squad consisting of these players if they wish. Very shrewd business from the Pozzos. Also the parent clubs are continuing to pay the wages until Watford have cleared the debts previously owed.



31 Aug 2012 01:43:05
Udinese have tonight (Thursday) confirmed the deal which sees Cristian Battocchio move to Watford on a season-long loan deal.

The 20 year-old midfielder tweeted this morning to say that he was heading to Vicarage Road on-loan and tonight the Udinese official site has confirmed the deal.

How can anyone click unbelievable - it is on the Udinese web site for goodness sake



31 Aug 2012 01:35:36
Boro have tonight agreed a fee with saint etienne over the transfer of former Leeds and Leicester winger Max Gradel, fee believed to be in the region of 3 million.

The only club gradel would be going back to is leeds

Oh right. So I suppose you have europa league football then? his heart belongs to Leeds and he wouldn't want to go anywhere else. It's just a shame he was homesick.

These players would play FOR anybody who pays the top dollar.

Early rumours have suggested that town have made a 2.6 million bid for Charlie Austin. Could be an interesting move, however I still think we need to get another 1 possibly 2 strikers that are proven goal scorers in the championship. Hears that Beckford has been linked too! D.B UTT!



31 Aug 2012 00:17:11
Chris Powell has come out says he is still hopefully of signing N'Guessan by the deadline, however if a deal can't be reached they Powell try to get him out on loan when the loan market opens 10 day after the transfer deadline.

any Middlesbrough news?

Middlesbrough are looking to re-invest the money received by the Joe Bennett transfer.Andre amougou and Albert adomah are realistic target's

Outs:: scott macdonald :: marvin emnes ins:: charlie austin :: amouga :: romeo caseltan :: harry kewell

We should go and get tuncay he terminated his contract and is availbale for nothing. he'll score us a few goals in this league. Mogga snap him up before Brighton do

Tuncays past it and after he took us to court gibson wouldn't have him backlets look forward not back

Tuncay, drooling... I'd have him back like, if only. I keep hearing a collections of names on here, but is there anything concrete?

"I don't think there'll be any more signings unless there's a substantial exit," Unfortunately it doesn't look as though boro will sign anyone, unless Swansea re ignite there interest in Marvin emnes which looks very unlikely. (very disappointing to say the least)

Steve morison in middlesbrough for talks right now

Any more news yet?

Where can I find out all the news instead of on here?

This is true, two of my mates work at rockliffe and steve morison was there sometime today

"Steve morison in middlesbrough for talks right now"


I believe Steve Morrison is a strong rumour! Unused at Norwich and an area they are strengthening! Already held talks with boro and Mowbray seems keen

Talks with steve morison broke down, he wanted too much money and mowbray wasnt having it. my "source" or "sources" are current employees of middlesbrough football club

Millwall news Darren Ward signing for Swindon on loan, Danny n'Guessan off to Charlton, Millwall have spent there budget, Kane gone, mquiod gone, n'guessan gone, Things look bleak down the den.

Expect to see more transfer activity at Millwall. If not today, when the loan window opens. Nguessan will be on his way. Depending on other circumstances, Marquis may also go on loan to a L1 team. This will release the funding to bring in a loan signing.

Kane was onloan. N'guessen nd mquiod were fringe playera and were not good enough for first team and with the summer signings malone taylor Shittu. Plus returning players makandwire racon and batt with the prospect of full season for wright and keough things look far from bleak with this being millwalls best squad theyve had since promotion

Millwall made enquiries about Jay Spearing before he joined Bolton

N guessuen to wednesday

How can you say things look bleak?? If we have a problem it's conceding silly goals, not scoring them! McQuoid and N'Guessan did very little (McQuoid has been sub for Bournemouth and apparently had a bad attitude!) Robbo and Tam to come back. Possibility of a loan signing - you must be thinking of palace mate!

Kane was never ours.

What a dope....Kane was never there this season...N,Guessan has never turned up..Mcquoid absolute garbage won't be missed......Happy days

Millwall are the greatest team on this planet, we have nadjim abdou so the other players don't really matter

From a good source Sunderland will sign Danny rose on loan and clint Dempsey on a 3 year deal by 11pm tonight he was holding out for Liverpool but they have dropped interest so his only option is Sunderland. Oneill is also romoured to lining up a bid that will smash there transfer record. I have no names but its a striker its been kept a huge secret but expect the unexpected!

Doubt the part about the massive striker but I would take Dempsey and rose. Safc93

Dempsey is Liverpool bound mate

I would like to see it. FTM


They are not the only one interested west ham are also interested

Prospect of Dempsey AND another big name striker negligible. With a LB first team would look better balanced than it has been for a long time- but no cover for Catts and is Fletcher injured not much up front either. still need LB, Nzonzi and another goalscorer.

Dempsey to Villa now? Meanwhile I see we are scratching around for loans of non first-team regulars- all too familiar. Only proven 'quality' recruited so far is Johnson, and we still look like a team that needs to play two or three out of position most weeks to make up a side. If Fletcher does not score 20+ goals this season will be another struggle- better wrap him up carefully and pray MON was right about his potential.

Hi Ed, news from Middlesbrough. Amougu is training at Hurworth. Kewell has agreed the 1.5k a week deal, still has a house in Wetherby but will only sign if McDonald goes, this is more to do with squad space than money. Bates will re-sign in the next month or so, he's walking without any assistance and the recovery is going really well. Mobray is a big fan of Albert Adomah, he's been watched by Boro for 18 months and they will go in with a £2.5 million bid if Emnes goes (direct replacement). Matt Killgannon could also come back down as defensive cover although the coaches are really pleased with the progress of Burgess at centre half. Mogga is well pleased with the youngsters - keep an eye out for Main, Reach, Park, Smallwood, Williams L, and C Wyke as the season progresses, his only concern is that he has such a batch of promising talent and could do with some experience to balance it out.

Harry Kewell was earning $2mil a year at Melb Victory, before that $4mil a year at Galatasaray for 3yrs and before that $60kpds a week for Liverpool........... He will not be paid $78k pds a year at Boro.

Actually Harry Kewell WILL play for between 1.5 to 2.5k a week. He is making still approx 1.5 mil a year from royalties in Australia plus sponsorship money. Its not about the wages anymore, Kewell wants to play english football, international football and play close to home so he has realised he needs to sacrifice his options. Alot of people have said no-one wants him but thats not the case, he has had multi million dollar offers from clubs in Asia and the USA but does not suit what he needs to satisfy his family. Kewell will be the best CHEAPEST signing for any club that can accomodate what he requires. Sign him now Boro and stop messing about.

Enmes for Adomah no chance

Seems to me Kewell is just waiting to sign on dotted line. McDonald or not sign him.

Good to hear progress on Matty Bates. There's been loyalty shown both ways over years. He's a class act but think if knee goes again he'll jack it. He'll want a kickabout with his grandchildren.

Newcastle are now to move for Loic Remy or Ryan Babel after missing out on Andy Carroll.

Mathieu Debuchy deal not dead in water, maybe he is a last minuter with Gregory Van Der Weil targeted.

Remy is staying in france, babel has just agreed a transfer and debuchy is going to Madrid

Babel has moved to Fiorentina

Debuchy not goin to madrid coz michael seydoux said : " No offer from Madrid"
