31 Dec 2012 21:25:42
Sunderland , Aston Villa , Southampton and
Bolton are all in the race to sign Jamie Mackie
from QPR for a fee of around 2 . 2 million.

Saints would not sign a second rate striker a lot worse than what we have



31 Dec 2012 21:24:38
Joseph Cole will be joining either Queens Park Rangers or West Ham United.

Billy Davies will become the new Blackburn Rovers manager.

West Ham have made a bid for Southampton striker Rickie Lambert. However Arsenal's Marouanne Chamakh seems the more likely to join.

West Ham are also interested in Buttner and Nick Powell from Manchester United.

West Ham are interested in taking Frank Lampard however will not open talks until he has officially left Chelsea.

Nicholas Anelka is on the verge of signing for West Ham United.

Loic Remy has turned West Ham United down, hoping for a move to a bigger club.

2 Premier League clubs are interested in Norwich striker Grant Holt.

Billy Davies to Blackburn would be great, he falls out with every club he's ever been at so could u really imagine him workin at that circus, he would have no control whatsoever and would be sacked the minute he questioned the owners.



31 Dec 2012 21:21:48
Malky looks Premiership bound albeit with Cardiff as he is being chased by two Premiership clubs... Aston Villa the most likely destination.

31 Dec 2012 22:09:24

Chelsea are waiting to put in a shock bid of
17.5 million for Demba Ba to link up with Fernando Torres. (most of the money is for a
leaving fee though) {Ed039's Note - Demba Ba has a £7m release clause so why would they bid £17.5m)

The outs look about right but none of the ins !!

31 Dec 2012 22:36:48
Good shouts there mate! Need traore for pacey clinical striker to feed off holt or possibly crouch! Agree with all ins for norwich city if we can pull them off to be honest!! Butland would probs come to ncfc because dave watson the keeper coach is the national coach and could help him cement a pernement place in the england squads! I'm not convinced with turner so davies a reliable goalscoring defender could provide a source with a goalscoring!! On crouch he is a norwich lad at heart and atm he is not getting regular football at stoke and ncfc would be a great outlet for him to come and play first team football with the good wingers we have here he will score goals!!!

31 Dec 2012 22:55:59
Norwich wont buy big because they have a good wages policy.

I could live with that lol

Surman would be welcome back at St Mary's although not sure he'd be a top priority and not sure where this rumour seems to have come from.
Can't see Davies and Butland for 8 million seeing as the comments of Birmingham boss were adamant that he was not going to let Butland go. Can't see Norwich spending that much either.



31 Dec 2012 20:07:24

With Reading having now signed
Daniel Carrico, anyone know if it's
true Huddlestone and Eisfield are

Too many rumours flying around at this time of year to know which are true and which are made up.



31 Dec 2012 19:42:21
Carlisle United want Joe Garner, but no doubt Garner will go for the better wage deal rather then pick 1st team football.

Is that why he is ringing every day, trying to get released by Watford.



31 Dec 2012 19:26:37

31 Dec 2012 20:36:52
No thanks, there are better players in the local Sunday league than him. Come on Westley wake up and realise that this is not good enough for Preston.

Elding will not be signing for PNE. Going back to Grimsby and then on to another club.



31 Dec 2012 19:22:36
danny higginbottom to sign a 3year contract at bristol city also bates to sign 12 month rolling contract

I doubt it.Higginbottom has stated he wants to stay up north with his family.

3 year deal to 34 year old who wants to stay up north, doubt that very much! But then again Steve Davies wanted to be nearer London and he went to Bristol???

Looks like he is going to Sheffield Utd on loan - with possibly a perm deal if successful



31 Dec 2012 19:28:48
To all those have ahead done it and all those that are about to do it, please down bother making out illy sharp is about to join your club.
He is on a yea long loan to nottingham forest and it is not breakable. This had been confirmed by billy sharp himself to national television.
He has also confirmed he would be very interested in joining full time and it is just down to the two clubs to agree things.
Now please stop making yourselves look silly by saying he is joining your club in jan. it is impossible.

I think you will find that sharp can be recalled to soton, having said that they have no intention of doing it and he will remain at forest for the season. however he will be a soton player next season, they will need him in their battle to fight for a mid table finish in the championship {Ed034's Note - sharp confirmed in an interview that he made sure there was no way he could be recalled as he wanted some stability this season, I am presuming as he had a little one on the way

This is football, nothing is impossible. If Man city bid £100 million for him tomorrow I bet things could change. Never say never in this game.



31 Dec 2012 19:18:20

Steve Bruce has reportedly been seen showing Southampton's Billy Sharp around the Hull City's Cottingham training ground after being unhappy with the sacking of Sean O'Driscoll from Forest where he is on loan. {Ed034's Note - not possible. He is a season loan and if he wanted to break it, which he doesn't as he has said already, he could only play for Southampton as he has payee for two clubs already

He's on loan for a season



31 Dec 2012 18:44:09

burnley ins and outs
ins -
jon taylor shewsbury
nosworthy watford
john gudetti man city (loan)

alex mac plymouth
marvin bartley bournemouth
jon stewart released
joe mills sent back to reading
luke o'neill bury loan

You forgot Austin in the outs pal

Austins going no where...the boards already said.

Austin aint goin unless we get a big offer for him , we dont need to sell and have already stated this , we will be getting rid of the dead wood though to free up some funds and will probably look to free transfers and the loan market rather than spending any money , the chairman has already said there wont be any money being spent in the upcoming transfer window

Gudetti a bit optimistic, didn't he score 20 in 20 for Feyenoord or something



31 Dec 2012 18:19:58
charlie austin set to sign a 1 year contract extension with burnley (reliable source his dads friend)



31 Dec 2012 18:12:07
ian harte to leeds and billy sharpe too leeds wiyh becchio going to southampton

You mean sharp who's n a year long loan with forest?

Bugger off sharps on a season long loan at forest

Would be good to see Harte playing regular football again, and where better than Leeds. Has been a real asset at Reading. Some dodgy defending, but makes up for it with assists and goals from free kicks.

Becchio going nowhere , sharpe on a season long loan at forest, get your facts right before making up BS

Sorry to see Harte go if this is true. Kinda believable though as this rumour has been gathering some pace for a while. You've got yourself a decent player and a real pro if this is true.

Billy Sharp can't go to Leeds until the Summer at the earliest.

Sharp on loan for full season



31 Dec 2012 18:05:17
Following on from Chalobah staying on loan at Watford, the Pozzos are looking at the possibility of sending Di Natale to the Hornets to ensure promotion to Premier League.

The owners of Udinese are in the business of signing up unknown young players from around the world, playing them in Serie A for a short while then selling them on for profit.

They also use feeder clubs for the same purpose, such as as Watford who they bought specifically for that purpose. What they don't do is sell/loan their best players when their is no benefit in it.

Don't be silly. Whilst the Pozzos are dedicated to getting Watford into the Premiership, they wouldn't sabotage Udinese's chances of getting into the top four in Italy by sending their best player and captain to us.

You obviously know nothing of the Pozzo's work. While the di Natale rumour may be pie in the sky, there are huge benefits for them in Watford going up.

Lol of course I would love that but I also doubt it would happen.

He'll only move to Watford if they're in the premier league already.
He's a regular and the captain at Udinese anyway so I don't think they'd be too happy about him leaving.

'Who they bought specifically for that purpose' - why would you make a statement when you clearly know nothing about the topic?

This would be great and would give us some chance vs man city but obviously is not true



31 Dec 2012 17:56:56
With QPR seemingly destined for relegation, top players are on their way out, either in January or in the summer:
Adel Taarabt to Arsenal/Everton/Sunderland/Newcastle
Esteban Granero to Celta Vigo/Reading/West Brom
Jose Bosingwa to a variety of Brazilian clubs
Jamie Mackie to Norwich/West Ham
Djibril Cisse to Leeds/Lille

With an injury crisis wba are lokking at huddlestone and eprahim

Absolutely No Chance!



31 Dec 2012 17:52:43
this is from a good source, izale mcleod will be released from pompy to talk to yeovil , jaime peters will also sign and marsh brown and haynes brown will leave plus already expected signings of djalo, edwards, dolan and dawson

Izale McLeod is in talks with MK Dons so yeah this is rubbish. Source: Karl Robinson



31 Dec 2012 17:49:12
Billy Sharp will sign for Nottingham Forest for 3 million.

He's agreed a loan deal to Hull City. Was seen at Hull's training ground yesterday.

Southampton already said they don't want to sell him. {Ed039's Note - Is he not on loan at Forrest until the end of the season?)

31 Dec 2012 19:59:12
Yes he's at forest until the end of the season



31 Dec 2012 17:45:13
Keanu Marsh Brown to Crawley Town after Gary Johnson told him he has no future at Huish Park.

Gary Johnson is interested in signing ex Crawley Town midfielder Scott Davies on a deal until the end of the season, but faces competition from Southend, Walsall and Northampton Town



31 Dec 2012 17:41:28
Paul Lambert at Aston Villa, to be replaced by Malky Mackay from Cardiff.

Why would mm leave premiership bound Cardiff for championship bound villa bluebirds going up

That isnt happening , he has a project here and he wants to stick with it , if he rejected norwich y join aston villa

Why would he leave a club heading for the prem for a club heading for the champo?

Rubbish, malky is loyal to cardiff and we look like where going up so far

Cardiff fans talk like they are going to be fabric of the premiership for the next 10 years.

Malky didn't reject Norwich, he just wasn't offered the job.............FACT!

Just like he was loyal to Watford, don't kid yourself if he feels that he's got an offer from a bigger club he'll be off. With all respect Cardiff aren't even the biggest club in Wales



31 Dec 2012 17:38:05
QPR forward DJ Campbell will walk away from the potential deal at Ipswich in favour of a move to Crystal Palace to link up with former boss Ian Holloway. Campbell also would prefer to stay with his family in London.

As a Palace fan, providing Campbell is willing to take a wage cut, (believe he's rumoured to be on like 25k a week?) then I'd be very happy with him to link up with us at Selhurst!



31 Dec 2012 17:35:46
Us Wolves fans are convinced MM wants Zubar and Roger Johnson from us. Johnson will cost £2 million and Zubar should be free.

They won't get SEB though.



31 Dec 2012 17:32:52
Huddersfield are going to approach for Leister David Nugent as he has slipped down the pecking order from the arrival of Chris Wood

Thats rubbish, Its going to be Nugent and Wood up top!!

You cant even spell Leicester so i doubt its reliable... an nugent has said he wants to be back in the premier league.
Chance with Leicester - Definate
Chance with Huddersfield - None

plus hes said hes loving life at Leicester

Can't see this, how is he going to get a game in front of Beckford or Vaughan?

Because hes a much better player than both of them... He was playing ahead of beckford at Leicester?
Beckford had 1 quality season with leeds an really hope you buy him so we can get him off the wage bill. Nuge is class

Ha ha ha ha ha...did you get that out of a xmas cracker?!

Come back soon with a sensible rumour... utter rubbish

You say he's playing before beckford, Leicsters manager dislikes Beckford.



31 Dec 2012 17:20:39
Bayo akinfenwa of Northampton town to sign for brentford.
The replacement is Emile Heskey.
Heskey is at sixfields signing right now apparently.
Rather have akinfenwa tbh.

Akinfenwa going to Brentford?? Worst Rumour ever!!!!!! Haha over weight barely make it in league 2 and going to a league 1 team going for promotion to championship!!!



31 Dec 2012 17:16:46
After speaking to will hughes in person a number of times, he will not be leaving in janurary to the linked clubs suggested; man utd, chelsea, spurs, arsenal, liverpool (the team he supporys), fulham, barca, everton.

The derby county board will however accept next january for A minimum if 7million if he is loaned back to derby fir the remaining games. "...................coventry have re signed james bailey on loan



31 Dec 2012 17:13:55
Colchester boss Joe Dunne has lined up a permanent deal for Akpo Sodje after his release from Preston, this is due to the failure to secure a permanent deal for Jabo Ibehre who is due to rejoin former club Leyton Orient

Sodje going back to Port Vale as Tom Pope's replacement



31 Dec 2012 17:11:17
Bristol rovers in talks with exeter city ref transfer of jamie cureton talks ongoing fee in region of £110, 000



31 Dec 2012 17:02:19
Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Cardiff have bid £1m for Peterborough midfielder George Boyd.

WWhen Cardiff lost to them he was by far there best player good signing

If thats true, Palace will be favourites as they are his boyhood team



31 Dec 2012 16:59:55
Peterborough will complete the loan signings of Aaron Mclean from Hull and Leicester's Jamie Vardy when the transfer window opens.



31 Dec 2012 16:58:35
Hull will not get Carlos bacca on loan however they are keen to sign leanardo bittencourt from borrussia Dortmund for the remainder of the season

I have heard this too! From a reliable source {Ed034's Note - I would have thought you had heard it as it is your rumour originally



31 Dec 2012 16:58:27
Rotherham United are set to sign Peterborough trio
Lee Frecklington - £250k,
Danny Kearns - Loan
Emile Sinclair - Loan.

Frecklington deal should be completed later in the week, we are interested in Danny Kearns but nothing as been mentioned about Emile Sinclair



31 Dec 2012 16:56:03
what does everyone make of the rumours that Arsenal starlet Thomas Eisfeld is going to Reading on loan?



31 Dec 2012 16:47:59
jolean lescott to newcastle, 100 percent, spotted at newcastle airport

Aye right ! Mancini just said he is releasing no one !

He needs to go to Newcastle airport to get to Sunderland



31 Dec 2012 16:25:57
Brighton have finalised a loan deal with Genoa to sign Sebastian Ribas, a striker who is currently on loan at French Ligue 2 side Monaco FC. The deal is until the end of season with an option to buy. Brighton had tried to sign Ribas's services pre-season although they were priced out on wages at the time. Monaco manager Claudio Ranieri, has yet to include Ribas in any of his starting line ups this season, due to disciplinary and fitness reasons, which has prompted Genoa to cut short his current loan deal, with Brighton the benefactors.



31 Dec 2012 16:21:19
Charlton Athletic in advanced talks
with Colchester regarding the transfer
of Anthony Wordsworth. Deal is by no
means done as there are several
interested clubs.

Charlton have recently been knocked
back by MK Dons in their attempts
to sign Stephen Gleeson. It is not
known wether they will return with an
improved offer when the January
transfer window opens.

Gleeson's out until the end of March minimum. No deals will be happening until the summer. Ryan Harley will be the replacement and Brighton have agreed a deal for Gleeson in the summer if we don't go up.

Gleeson has just undergone surgery so if anything if true in that statement it will be in the summer, still doubtful



31 Dec 2012 16:45:42
Yeovil town to announce the release of:
Keanu Marsh-Brown,
Richard Hinds,
Curtis Haynes-Brown ,
Dominic Blizzard,
Gozie Ugwu.

Over the next few days the following signings will be announced:
Paddy Madden,
Korey Smith (Loan)
Kevin Dawson,
Jacques Maghoma,
Matthew Dolan,
Larnell Cole.

Maghoma is rubbish no where near league 1 standed

31 Dec 2012 21:13:20
I personally can't see Hinds or Blizzard going untill at least the summer. Hinds signed in the summer with assurances as he had to move a young family to play here. Ugwu is due back at reading and Haynes-Brown is on-loan at Cambridge with a view for a perminant deal so that is also very likly. Marsh-Brown has pretty muched left all ready especially is you look at some of his tweets on twitter.

And a lot of our players ain't league 1 standard

5 midfielders coming in? I can not see that happening, paddy is pretty much a certain, as is dawson and dolan, smith is 50/50, we need defenders not midfields!

Whose larnell cole?



31 Dec 2012 16:44:43
Plymouth Argyle are set to sign Rotherham striker Daniel Nardiello in a deal worth around £80K

No there not Nardiello is not for sale.Steve Evans as said none of first team Will be sold

Really, hes Rotherham's best striker

Lmfao next joke

31 Dec 2012 21:03:57
And PAFC are skint. Players have to be sold or released as we have too many players already

Brent has loads of cash but he's tight



31 Dec 2012 16:39:59
Lawson dath leaving Cheltenham and returning to Yeovil for he rest of he season



31 Dec 2012 16:28:00
Rotherham United have finally got there man in signing Jack Lester from Cheterfield in a 50k fee. Currently at the New Yorky , Chesterfield fans not going to be happy

Load of rubbish Jack Letter is not for good enough...

How can Jack Lester not be good enough? Every single Division 2 club wood take him and most Div 1 at the moments notice.

You can have him I would keep Marc Richards and sell Mardy unfit jack

Too old and like i said not good enough..

Top stuff at last Millers land a striker they can actually afford 50k for a 35 year old Jack lol

Sorry 50k for a 37 year old



31 Dec 2012 16:38:00
Preston North End looking to sign Damian Reeves and Tom Pope if they manage to release 3/4 players

Which players are going to be released? All were signed by Westley apart from Stuckmann and Wright. It's pretty pathetic if Westley is wanting to get rid of players he only signed in the summer. I'd rather they just sacked Westley.

31 Dec 2012 20:34:53
Proctor Holdroyd Daley and Cummins out on loan



31 Dec 2012 16:05:23
Colchester approach Izle McLeod about signing till the end of the season.

He is in yeovil now talking to Gary Johson

31 Dec 2012 19:25:55
hes at the weston homes actually just seen him and he loved it at col u on loan before injury , were signing the entire portsmouth team



31 Dec 2012 15:57:43
Anthony Pilkington (Norwich) looks set for a January move to Everton.

He goin villa

Norwich will only sell for 25 mill mate so you can put that one to bed .....

Chris Hougton has already stated that players are not for sale, so you can bet a player who is a regular starter is not going to be sold to another premier league club, unless the money is stupid and by that I mean £10M, Villa cannot afford that and Norwich would certainly not sell to a club who could threaten Norwich's place in premier league...
The pot of gold is too big next season to cash in on one of our star players for short term gain, nor do we need the cash, club will be debt free by season end...

Too villa. Ummmm... NO



31 Dec 2012 15:53:30
Colchester sign George Porter from Burnley on loan til end of season



31 Dec 2012 15:47:59
Philip Ifill has been spotted leaving Colliers Park, Wrexham FC's training ground. He is due to undergo a medical before a move in the transfer window.



31 Dec 2012 15:44:01
Anyone else heard the rumours about Paul Ince in the running for the vacant managers job at Barnsley? {Ed039's Note - Was on sly sports news earlier)



31 Dec 2012 15:40:45
Charlie Austin to Norwich - you heard it here first !!

Can't see it happening. If Burnely sold Rodriguez for £7m after scoring like 23 goals, and Austin is already at that same tally, then they're gonna demand stupid money that frankly nobody would pay for him.

Its not the first time and it wont be the last time. great player but unless uve got £8m to burn then forget that one ... dont think he will go to a small prem side that prob be relegated in the next 2 seasons .... do you ?

Overated championship player no thanks

We need premier quality austin is good but not sure premier good

Norwich are looking further afield for players and are after a higher standard than Austin, so this is pie in the sky.

Cant see us affording him. Rodriguez WENT FOR 6.5 MIL, Im sure they would want more for this lad



31 Dec 2012 11:51:45
Hi ed's, was earlier mentioned that declan hunt from west ham would be joining championship club. Is this loan or permanent? {Ed039's Note - Is he not on loan at Braintree?)



31 Dec 2012 15:37:02
With holt struggling with injuries & Morison not up to premier league level - expect hughton to splash the cash on Danny graham + Craig mackail smith

What cash to splash now that's funny if its over 2mill then say goodbye

The sarcastic remark about £2M is clearly a tractor boy coming out of the woodwork, Norwich have at least £10M available if its actually required.
CMS is not on the agenda, headless chicken who gives 110% but just not good enough for Norwich now...
Danny Graham is a possibility, but I doubt Swansea will part with him.



31 Dec 2012 15:36:29
Sheffield wednesday to sign Barnsley striker Craig Davies

He will go to a better side than owls

I would gladlydrive him to you most overated , lazy striker in the division just reyt for your

Middlesbrough will sign carlilses maty Robson and David symington for a cut price 220k in january



31 Dec 2012 15:28:01
Afc Wimbledon looking to sign former players including Kedwell, Hatton and Hussey

Kedwell wouldnt come back to us he is getting regular games for a promotion chasing side, dont want hatton got to many players that cant string a pass together

Kedwell!? He's banging them in for the Gills. I'd love him back but I don't see that one

31 Dec 2012 19:34:36
Kedwell is not scoring and gills are looking for two new strikers.
Hussey is not in the plans of management in Coventry

Kedwell rarely plays now, usually on bench, only scores pens, but he said one reason he left was commute, along with it being his boyhood club

I'd take all of them back, maybe if NA chooses to play Sam in his preferred midfield position we might see a lot more from him

31 Dec 2012 23:57:29
I wrote the comment about him banging them in for the Gills earlier, had a chat with a Gills fan on twitter that writes for the newspaper and apparently he hasn't been at training for alot of sessions in the last 2 weeks. Apparently Allan has said he dosent score enough in open play for them and is on the lookout for new strikers



31 Dec 2012 15:26:44
The latest names I've heard linked with Charlton in January (and not bad shouts in my opinion )...

Britt Assombalonga and Gavin Tomlin (both scoring goals at Southend)

Jim Fenlon (a talented young full-back at AFC Wimbledon)

Simeon Jackson (striker to sign on loan from Norwich)

Assombalonga is on loan from Watford, as will not be sold as he has a future with them.

Ipswich Town look set to miss out on extending Danny Higginbotham's stay at Portman Road, following interest from another club.

Never mind, only been a sub for us recently.good luck danny

Any idea who the other club is?



31 Dec 2012 15:06:52
Colchester to swoop for QPR midfeilder Michael Dougherty on loan till the end of the season.



31 Dec 2012 14:55:37
Jonjo Shelvey stayed in London after the QPR match, he had talks with Arsenal over a possible loan till the end of the season. Wenger is keen to partner him with his Friend Jack Wilshere. He can see them as the new Viera/Petit pairing. Should the Sneijder to Liverpool move go ahead, Shelvey is keen to leave Anfield.

Shelvey aint good enough for a poor liverpool side so he certainly aint gonna get into the Arsenal side.

This would be another dreadful signing for arsenal. I can't see it happening

Shelvey is under rated he will improve us



31 Dec 2012 14:53:13
Reading are expected to be one of the busier clubs during this January window, not only bringing players in but some going in the other direction, Church and Gorkss are expected to leave to Championship clubs, Millwall and Charlton respectively, Pearce is being courted by both Liverpool and Stoke city, and another player being closely watched is Midfielder Jem Karacan with Everton, Liverpool, Newcastle and Fulham all having scouts at the Madejski on saturday, although the £3.5m price tag might be too much at the moment.

What a joke, Pearce and Karacan will not interest the likes of Liverpool or any club around that standard. Reading are rumoured to be one of the least busy clubs in January with some players set to leave yes and few to come in according to McDermott too.

Reading have sighned carrico



31 Dec 2012 14:52:37
If injuries to Holt and Morison are worse than feared, we will look to bring in an experienced Premiership striker such as Bent or Crouch

Bent - no chance, thinks he's better than he is, and frankly his injury record is not great, again Crouch does not fit the profile, no real resale value a couple of seasons down the road. Suspect Houghton will target players 24-26 age group and likely he will go for a striker from Europe with a proven pedigree...



31 Dec 2012 14:49:57
Crystal palace roumered ins/outs.

Albert Adomah - bristol - winger - If wilf leaves
Niel Eardly - blackpool - rb
DJ camble - on loan at ipswich but wants to play for hollie again.

Wright - gillingham
Wilf - arsenal (according to tom soars)

Yep wright, legge and macdonald to join on loan till end of the season

Would love adomah and campell to join crystal palace however would cost alot of money and would like to see a 442 formation murray and campell with adomah and bolasie eather wing



31 Dec 2012 14:47:52

Crawley are close to signing Izale McLeod after the striker's release from Portsmouth.

Looks more likely to go to mk dons

31 Dec 2012 17:37:51
Outside chance he maybe joining Coventry City after recent good performance when at Portsmouth.

He;s still not good enough for league One . he dives an awful lot in games as well

He is going home to MK Dons



31 Dec 2012 14:33:30
Ipswich have agreed a nominal fee with QPR for their on loan striker DJ Campbell.
Campbell 31 is keen on the switch though no talks with the player have officially taken place yet over a perminent switch.Ipswich are keen to tie the deal up ASAP in the next few days as Campell's loan period is up next week.



31 Dec 2012 14:31:34
Aaron Maclean to sighn for peterborough Tuesday on loan for rest of season, this info comes from respected insider at hull

Good luck to him wherever he goes. He works his socks off and gives 100% every match he plays in. Shame about his lack of goals, needs must I suppose.



31 Dec 2012 14:28:24
Leonardo Ulloa and Danny Graham set to sign for brighton in the next couple of days. One of Will Hoskins or Craig Mackail-Smith could be going and both of them could be on their way if poyet can secure another striker he is chasing, beleieved to be billy sharp who apparantly wont be returning to nottingham forest

Billy sharp has said he won't be returning to southampton and forest have began talks over a permanant contract

Billy Sharp's loan deal is until the end of the season with no recall clause

Won't be returning coz he hasn't gone anywhere, here for the season

You mean billy sharp who is on a season long loan, with no call back and who stated today he'd be happy to discuss a permanent switch?
Hmmm think that's just made your story just that

Sharp is on a season long loan with no recall clause so thats tosh

31 Dec 2012 21:49:51
Here's Albion's local paper, appears you were right about Leonardo Ulloa



31 Dec 2012 14:27:20
Gillingham looking at a few first team players
lee frecklington - (whelpdale, lee) both former team mates.
Possibility of bringing back Luke Rooney as out of favour at Swindon .
Scally has told Martin Allen to get players who can finish, meaning he has lost faith in Strevens . Kedwell isn't scoring.

No chance on Rooney, he is joining Wimbledon on loan



31 Dec 2012 14:25:19
Crawley have made an offer to take Simon Church on loan from Reading. Swindon are also interested but the Coppell factor will help the Sussex side secure the signature of the striker until the end of the season.

Millwall are in talks with Simon Church



31 Dec 2012 14:23:46
Heard a rumour we are looking at out of favour winger at Southampton - Steve De Ridder.....looks like Tomas wont be signed permamnently then if we are looking at other wingers

Which team will be signing Steve De Ridder?

Darren Ward joining Swindon from Millwall on January 2nd, Town also after 2 more players



31 Dec 2012 14:18:58
After the signings of Tom Hitchcock, John-Joe O'Toole and Steve Mildenhall. John Ward still wants to add a further 4 players to his squad. One of these is Colchester centre-back Matt Heath, who would arrive on a permanent deal. The second is winger Anthony McNamee who currently plays for Macclesfield. He is also intersted in bringing in Brighton midfielder Matt Sparrow. He also wants a new striker, and his main target is Roy O'Donovan from Coventry.

Macclesfield have confirmed that Anthony McNamee will be released at the end of his short term deal

I will drive O'Donovan there for you



31 Dec 2012 14:14:45
Zigic & Redmond to reunite with chris hughton at Norwich

We couldn't afford Redmond's transfer value or zigic's wages



31 Dec 2012 14:08:23
Jose Canas from betis to Swansea almost a certainty! Loving life atm coys!



31 Dec 2012 14:03:54
Middlesbrough in need of some real pace on the right hand side, SPL outfit Motherwell FC, Jamaican International Winger, Chris HUMPHREY would slot perfectly into the role. Humphreys close friend (The Duke) Jutkiewitz would be an ideal partnership.

If this is true we awill have to pacy flanks when carayol is back

31 Dec 2012 19:00:09
Humph is a good player, amazing pace and very quick of the mark, but he is absolute crap at crossing and not very good at shooting either. I would gladly let him go.

He is a good winger with pace and good shooting



31 Dec 2012 14:03:52
Nottingham forest's Alex mcleish is interested in aston villa's barry bannan, also steps are being made to sign billy sharp and alan hutton permanently

31 Dec 2012 13:51:12
Colchester boss Joe Dunne has not yet finished his signings of financially stricken Pompeys players.

Next on his list is Brian Howard who he is looking to as his new playmaker in the middle of park



31 Dec 2012 13:50:03
Colchester are set to announce the signing of Izale McLeod after he left Pompey by Mutual conset.

This is something Joe Dunne has been looking to complete for a while after recommending him to John Ward during the summer transfer window.

This will take the number of permanent signings at Colchester in January to 3 so far; all of whom have come from Portsmouth who lie lower in the league one table



31 Dec 2012 13:49:46
Nathaniel Cholabah set to extend his loan at watford until the end of the season in order to help watford achieve automatic promotion.

Seeing how well he played for us against Brighton (been at uni this year so haven't been able to see any home games this season), this is very good news for us!



31 Dec 2012 13:49:21
Izale Mcleod has today ripped up his contract at Portsmouth and is now free to discuss terms with other clubs such as mk dons, crawley, Colchester, Gillingham and tranmere. his most likely destination is a return to old club mk dons.

staying with pompey they have signed former Southampton striker david conolly on a months contract after training with the club.

Mkdons confirm there in talks to sign mcleod

31 Dec 2012 19:48:17

^Jabe Ibehre

Mcleod was also apparently seen at Mk dons ground today as well and there manager has conformed that there in talks



31 Dec 2012 13:45:52
A number of clubs including Leeds, Hull and Nottingham Forest are seeking to sign Sion striker Evan Melo

Looks very good with an excellent goal scoring record. Makes a change from all the Campbell hype.



31 Dec 2012 13:37:07
Plymouth looking to add 3 players
in january. 2 players are all ready
set to sighn.
Alex Macdonald (Burnley)
Ryan Dickinsion (Southampton)

Ryan watched the 1-1 draw between plymouth and torquay on boxing day!

Dickinsion? It's Dickson. Not sure Plymouth will manage to sign him but good luck to them. I heard their target was Jonathan Forte of Southampton. Although they can go for both.

Good signings but we need a replacement centre back for purse when he leaves and get rid of Chadwick and bring in Liam Dickinson

MacDonald is likely but Dickinson is unrealistic



31 Dec 2012 13:32:15
It is official...Carlisle Utd are skint, completely skint.. starting tomorrow a fire sale of all players, come along and grab a bargain, some good youngsters with potential going extremely cheap, other players available for free just to reduce the wage bill, which is currently being paid for by the chairman, Mr Jenkins, tell all about it, Carlisle will be in administration by March should they not be able to sell, the men from the mountains will be no longer

Rubbish money is tight but Carlisle will never fall in administration, the loss they only lost £110 g and for the two before had made £140 g and that money is kept in the bank

Too far....... will never ever ever happen mate

No chance of us going in to administration coz we don't spend any money and all the money we have made in transfer fees over the years is kept in the bank because the board are tight gits and won't spend awt



31 Dec 2012 13:26:09
john joe o toole has signed for bristol rovers from colchester month loan view to permanent



31 Dec 2012 13:14:48
Jermaine Grandison of Shrewsbury has been linked with Bournemouth and Swindon, most likely to go to the Robins and Shrewsbury to get James Collins on loan for the remender of the season.

Bournemouth are certainly not interested in him! Poor rumour

No, but will have John Taylor instead

31 Dec 2012 17:44:44
Jermaine does not want to move anywhere. End of.

Don't want him at AFCB. Give is Jon Taylor.

Taylor is to good for leauge 1

Grandison will either stay at Shrews or go to a Championship club. They would be lucky to have him. A very promising RB/CB



31 Dec 2012 13:10:49
Billy McKay from Inverness to Wigan. Martinez brought James McArthur and James McArthy from Scotland and McKay will be his latest signing from north of the border. Reported fee of £750, 000.



31 Dec 2012 13:08:02
Colchester midfielder John-Joe O'Toole has joined League Two's bottom club Bristol Rovers on an initial one month loan. The Irishmen links back up with former U's boss John Ward who re-joined Rovers a couple of weeks ago. Ward has already said he would be interested in possibly extending the loan until May. The initial deal will run until January 31st 2013.



31 Dec 2012 12:54:40
Everton-villa agree swop deal, bent for heitinga.

How much cash will Everton need to stump up also? {Ed025's Note - not very much i would think..

Reading are looking at former Wigan and ivory coast defender Steve Gohouri.

Don't want him he's rubbish.



31 Dec 2012 12:47:53
Leon Legge training with Gillingham this morning.



31 Dec 2012 12:35:52
Ipswich are likely to be on the hunt for a forward man once club top goalscorer DJ Campbell returns to Loftus Road. A few possible signings are Barnsley's Craig Davies, Wolves' Sylvain Ebanks-Blake or possibly Norwich's Simeon Jackson.

Wouldn't bet against it as Simmo is currently out of fovour. He simply doesn't fit into our philosophy.

Would do a swap for chopra



31 dec 2012 12:26:22
luis suarez off to p.s.g 9.5 millionm. liverpool already have his replacement in dean sturridge, but now bid for kone from wigan....redjohn

9.5 million? Recently signed a new contract. One of the best players in the world and he's going for less than half of what they paid for him?
Buffoon you are.

Daniel sturridge and I highly doubt Liverpool would sell suarez, especially for 9.5 million

Also. Who's dean sturridge?

Lol dean sturridge ?? That's Daniels dad, the ex derby county striker whose brother I work with, how embarassing you can't even get details correct tut tut



31 Dec 2012 12:25:38
West Brom to beat off interest from Sheffield United, Rangers and Norwich for Motherwell's Jamie Murphy.

He's gone to sheff utd. Deal done

And Sheffield United can compete with the likes of West Brom and Norwich. And Rangers? You having a laugh? 3rd tier of Scottish football!!

As said by another, it's a done deal. It's been on Local radio in Sheffield that Murphy is to be heading down today to sign before return to scotland to play for Motherwell against Celtic.

Would have played for United against Donny but the FA isn't open early enough for paperwork to be received and sent back to make them eligible.

Well he's signed for united -_-



31 Dec 2012 12:26:17
Arshavin, Caricco, Eisfeld and Huddlestone all to be unveiled as Reading players within the first week of January

Good improvements there! Fingers crossed that those all happen! Is Huddlestone loan or permenent?

Arshavin was denied by McDermott himself.

Carrico has been confirmed on the clubs site this evening :)

Well Carrico has now signed, think Eisfield and Huddlestone are likely although apparently Arshavin has rejected the move due to wages



31 Dec 2012 12:22:57
Just seen a really posh car go in to colney training ground with what looked like Peter crouch in the passenger seat. Could crouchy be returning to norwich in January???

We would not not be able to afford him.

If it was crouch his head would be stuck out the sunroof

Was not crouch it was me just went to clean tne showers .....mate



31 Dec 2012 12:22:17
Danny Graham close to signing from Swansea to Brighton

Heard hes close to signing for hull as well

Doubt it (Swans fan)

No better than we've got
In ;Richardson-saints
Livermore -spurs
Barnes, El abd-Worthing(about there level)

Danny Graham is going nowhere according to DG



31 Dec 2012 12:10:46
I was at a Guillem Balagué book signing got his book on pep guardiola last week in belfast he is sure falcao is going no where in January also told us chelsea had been offered him 1 hour before th European super cup where he scored a hat-trick , abramovich said he was sticking with Torres. Balague did say however falcao would be moving in the summer so a deal could be done for th summer now



31 Dec 2012 12:09:04
Leicester are favourites to land Manchester United youngster Nick Powell on loan.

Peterboro is his likely destination.

Was the case untill west ham became intrested and fergie thinks that theiw track record with England youngsters is evidence that he would progress better there



31 Dec 2012 11:57:20
Huddersfield Town are likely to bid £1.3 million for peterboroughs George Boyd as they feel that this is an area that needs strengthening. Also, Nakhi Wells of Bradford is on Graysons shopping list for £1million although Town are unlikely to bid more than this amount because Hoyle wants to be sensible with the finances. If Boyd doesnt go through, they will attempt to re-sign Adam Hammill who has impressed in recent weeks.
Anton Robinson & Scott Arfield (loan) are likely to be signed by lower league clubs because they are not to feature in Graysons plans.

I've heard Rachubka and Danny Pugh from Leeds as back up, both on frees and Grayson rates both highly.

Rubbish. Arfield staying, Robinson will be sold. The rest might be true.

George Boyd is available on a free transfer because Peterboro want to unload his reported 12k a week wages which is why his move to Ipswich earlier in season fell through.

Can't see Huddersfield paying that in wages!

I can believe the Arfied , Robinson part ( along with a few others) but skeptical about the boyd Rumor and the Wells rumor, for that price sounds like utter tosh to me ( no offence)

Over mill for Boyd who free in summer

Danny pugh may be ok, dont need a striker just someone to get the ball up there.

Boyd won't go on a free

They are paying Beckford 30k a week wages as Leicester aren't paying them whilst he is at Hudds!

Our top earner is beckford currently on 25k a week!

Posh would prefer Boyd to sign a new contract, nothing to do with getting him off the wage bill.

If Boyd was on a free, he would have been gone long ago. ridiculous statement.

12k a week is well within Huddersfields pay structure, the problem might be that Boyd doesn't want to move so far North. But you never know, money usually talks.

Wells will not leave in January. If Bradford get promoted to League 1 he will stay. If not he could move in the summer.

31 Dec 2012 18:46:35
Boyd wants to leave Posh he's turned down a new contract there and refused a deal to go to Ipswich in August.The problem is nobody will pay the wages Boyd wants.Boyd needs to get real.

Perhaps Lee Clark would like to take Robinson to Birmingham - he was daft enough to bring him to Hudders in the first place. Rachubka and Pugh - no way, both not good enough. Boyd would be a useful signing if only to stop Peterborough from beating us every time we play them. We need an attacking midfield player who can score goals so Boyd fits the bill.



31 Dec 2012 11:55:37
Leon Legge will sign for Gillinfham tomorrow after he was spotted training with Gillingham this morning.I have seen the picture on .At the moment im not sure whether it is a loan or a permanent deal.

Good addition to a squad at Gillingham already full of quality players. David Wright to sign tomorrow with Legge!

Most likely another bloody loan



31 Dec 2012 11:43:32
Brighton based Leeds fan, current word down here is CMS is Norwich bound.

Do hope so not worth 3 million



31 Dec 2012 11:38:22
Jamille Matt will surprisingly sign for League 2 outfit York City in a 90k deal this week, how they have pulled that one off I will never know



31 Dec 2012 11:35:00
Burton Albion to lose key players in January market:

Zola to Cardiff City - scout confirmed on Saturday (although Rotherham are definitely interested)

Billy Kee to Crawley Town - 450K will not be turned down.

Matt Paterson to Notts County or Bournemouth both been tracking him since he left Southend.

Jacques Maghoma to either Peterborough or Ipswich fee in the region of 320k

Zander Diamond wanted by a host of teams including St Mirren and St Johnstone in Scotland and Rochdale, Bury and Oldham.

More to follow.

Zander will not go to Oldham they released him in the summer

Paterson came through the AFCB youth system while Howe was still playing so might be a connection....but don't think AFCB are looking for a striker in Jan.
Did he not also sign an extended contract in Oct to the end of the season?
If EH thinks he has potential then a deal with loan back might be done.

Crawley have't got 450k to spend

What a load of bo****ks

Saw the Cardiff scout at the Pirelli on Saturday so maybe something in this. Billy Kee has just signed a 3 year deal so difficult to see him leaving. Paterson looks quality when not injured so maybe. Mags is on fire so another maybe. Diamond I think might end up in Scotland so another maybe!

We got rid of Diamond as his wage demands was a joke so we said cheerio and league 2 he went. he's not that good anyway makes too many mistakes. MVOTO and BYRNE much better centre halfs. {Ed039's Note - Zander Diamond is a terrible footballer IMO)

Note to Ed - Diamond has been outstanding this season for Albion - POTY so far!

Zanders been our player of the season so far...oldhams loss is our gain



31 Dec 2012 11:18:06
A few premier league and championships teams watched Andrew Tutte from rochdale.



31 Dec 2012 11:10:29
Matt McLure to Bristol City. Stead to Huddersfield or Peterborough.

Huddersfield do not want Stead, this rumour is getting a bit boring now.

Stead to good for htfc anyway

Stead too good for Huddersfield? When they have Vaughan and Beckford until the end of the season, why would they buy a washed-up former academy player who in fact played his best football with town. Really, a relegation doomed side like Bristol is where he should stay, certainly not 'boro or town. Maybe Barnsley though

Stead and baldock better than vaughan and beckford bristol CITY may looked doomed but htfc are not safe yet as for peterboro they look doomed too



31 Dec 2012 11:05:49
Didier Drogba to sign for QPR on loan. Heard it here first.

Reading are close to signing Tomas Rogic from Central Coast Mariners



31 Dec 2012 10:43:55
Cheltenham Town are interested in signing striker Matthew Barnes-Homer who has scored 13 goals for Macclesfield this season. Mark Yates tried to sign the former Kidderminster man last season.
The Robins are also weighing up a move for Conference top scorer Aaron O'Connor, although they are likely to be priced out of any potential deal.

Not a chance!

There are higher profile clubs than Cheltenham interested in signing these players.

Yes higher profile clubs wanted Darren carter maglashan jombati zebroski marlon pack but no they all ended up at cheltenahm, cheltenahm have more money than peop think.



31 Dec 2012 10:36:48
NATHAN ELLINGTON: Been out on loan with Scunthorpe for last month in a 30 day deal but seen nothing of extension. May be available til end of season and wants to get back into regular football and scoring. Could be a good loan for next few months.

I thought he gave up football before he went to Watford



31 Dec 2012 10:22:55
Bradford could be back in for Paul Bensioon as PP is LONG TERM admirer. Last spoke to him at cedar court hotel bradford last year and was then interested to sign. According to a work firend he could well sign again on a month to mont xontract . As finacial stability is a + at Bradford.

Benson wont be coming to valley parade he will sign for pompey



31 Dec 2012 10:16:42
Millwall are to test Port Vale's resolve with a bid of £450k for striker Tom Pope.

Tom pope is not leaving vale FACT just signed a new 1 year extention

Vale's new chairman is looking to build a business, he won't do that selling its No. 1 asset. Unless he can re-coup the million he spent buying the club.

CSM: rumour has a SMITH undergoing a medical in Bingley, Leeds. Looking strangley like the deal with BECHIO. Anyone seen CMS on M1 travels recently ?

CMS heading for Norwich

He was rumoured to be having a medical at some clinic in Leeds elsewhere on this site.

Can you not do some research or learn to read, because strangely its been stated that no first team squad players are leaving Leeds , least of all Becchio , and cms will be in the prem

31 Dec 2012 10:01:14
If Peter Crouch goes to QPR, i heard from a reliable source from within the club that Pulis will get Rickie Lambert from Southampton. Lambert was impressive on Saturday agaist Stoke.

Rickie Lambert will not be leaving Southampton.

Like Messi he is not for sale. Just get over it!

You are very gullible if you believe that. Stoke would have to pay stupid money to take Lambert. We had the same debate with West Ham. Southampton enjoy the best of Lambert so his price to anyone looking to take him will be stupidly high.

He isn't going to stoke or anywhere else.

Rickie lambert is the second highest English scorer in the premier league, there is no way on earth that Adkins will let him go.

Join the queue but no first team regulars will be going anywhere, at least until the summer.

Peter Crouch looks more likely to be moving to Norwich if at all. Personally can't see him leaving Stoke.



31 Dec 2012 09:45:39
Doncaster will re-sign Richie Wellens on loan this week from Leicester City.

Is this a dream, he said he wanted to return to Doncaster again as he enjoyed his time with us. Please come back Richie.

AS Monaco striker Ibrahima Toure is attracting Premier League interest.

Toure has struck a stunning 14 goals in 16 games for Ligue 2 ASM this season.

L'Equipe says Tottenham and Norwich City are among interested clubs, with Shakhtar Donetsk having already made an offer for the Senegal international.

Ibrahima Toure has not got EU Passport so how can he play in the UK when he is not an International



31 Dec 2012 09:19:46
Arshavin is joining reading as previously stated - inside information the deal is done

Reading looking at Shaun wright Phillips as he wants to start

Matt Phillips looking to leave Blackpool as best friend Tom ince set to leave and that Blackpool doing badly. Reading, saints, Wigan and west ham but family live in Berkshire so he is looking likely that he will join reading

Would love to sign Arshavin and hopefully you are correct in saying that we will sign him. He could really help us stay up! Would also love to see Matty Phillips join Reading because i live in Wycombe (where i used to see him play) and he really looks somethin special.

What a joke, McDermott said getting Arshavin will not happen and not to expect it to. As for Matt Phillips he is not likely to Join Reading. Reading don't need Wingers most of all anyway.

Talk down here in North London possible move for Frank Lampard, his Great Grandad was born and bred in the Town and his wife is looking to work with a TV company in Manchester. Money is not an issue for him, just wants to be happy and get on with playing. Free transfer.

Yes, Grayson to be sacked if fail to win in next 3 games.

Please let this be true. I'd love to have lamps in our midfield

You townies are so gullible, lol

Liverpool are rumoured to be lining up a move for Fenerbace's Moussa Sow. Sow, who arrived at Fenerbace during the 2012 January transfer window, has a prolific goal scoring record for both club and country and may be seen as an ideal signing for Brenden Rodgers' side in the upcoming transfer window.

David Flitcroft will be appointed as manager until the end of the season at Barnsley.
'Flicker' has already spoke to the board about bringing in Warrington Town manager Shaun Reid as his assistant. Reid has played professional football at York, Rochdale and Chester and has managed both Town and Prescot Cables in non league football.
Flitcroft is expected to be backed in January by the Barnsley board as they hope to stay up.
He is keen on bringing two centre halves into the club with both Craig Dawson and Josh Thompson causing interest. The Oakwell club have been poor at defending set pieces this year and the new boss feels Dawson (West Brom) and Thompson (on loan at Colchester from Celtic) would put things right.
One striker who is subject of a loan bid from the South Yorkshire outfit is Tope Obadeyi. The 23 year old plays in Portugal for Rio Ave and could replace Marcus Tudgay who has gone back to Nottingham Forest injured.
Barnsley keeper Luke Steele could be sold to raise funds as he's out of contract in the summer. Flitcroft has already been told to look out for a new goalkeeper by the board and has identified Derby stopper Frank Fielding or West Brom player Luke Daniels as their man. Both keepers are wanting more first team football and Fielding could sign on loan until the end of the season or Daniels could be signed for an undisclosed fee.

Josh thompson is at portsmouth he got released from celtic last season

Josh thompson has already agreed to sign on permanently at Colchester so he won't break the deal

No it will be Kevin Blackwell without a doubt.
he wants out of Bury as they are in a much worse financial state than he was led to believe and there is no chance of freshening the squad in january

ST for sale if flicker is made manager . SO'D or bust !

thompson just signed 18 month deal at col u

I hope Flicroft is not the new manager, we want an experianced championship manager who can play ugly and win, Steele Davies can both go because neither of them have pulled any trees up

Josh thompson has signed for colchester on 18 month contract

Rowings running club into the ground! what exactly is going to change if flicker is made manager.. not a lot.. hes a decent coach and with the right man above him like redfearn or o driscoll.. we have a chance... if we get any of the names that are flying about like Blackwell..slade.. barker .. especially Blackwell...the crowds will be down to 5000 from the poor 8000 they are now... ticket prices will go up even more as rowing couldn't run a pub team... and lights out for Barnsley football club!

Looks like flitcroft going to carry on where hill left off fetching nobodys in get shut now.

Frank fielding on loan good joke.

Why oh why would we want neal redfearn as manager.

Due to Jason Steele's recent impressive performances, premier league clubs are showing an interest. Any such move would be unlikely unless a bid of over 3 million pounds came in.

Boro's interest in a loan move for Stewart Downing relies on them being in the top 2 according to a close friend
of Downing's. However this seems unllikely too due to Downing's recent form. However Sturridges move from Chelsea to Liverpool could change things.

Downings recent poor form? you mean since he's been a pro

31 Dec 2012 11:59:51
Recent good form pal...



31 Dec 2012 01:07:16
Barnsley to appoint Sean O'Driscoll as Manager next week

He'd be a great choice for you too. A great manager and a lovely honest and pleasant man. Did not deserve the sack at Forest

Bring on ODrisscoll, just the man for the reds

Crystal Palace interested in:
Curtis Davies

And a Partridge in a pear tree {Ed001's Note - Richie Partridge? Thought he retired?}

All these players would improve Palace. I hope at least some of these rumours come true!
