Swansea will sign Gabriel Obertan from Newcastle for 2.5m and Hannover striker Didier Ya Konan for an undisclosed fee by the end of next week.

Ya Konan will join Red Bull Salzburg

You mean they are going to pay actual money for Obertan?

Hope they do sign Obertan he's rubbish Newcastle be Lucky to get 2.5m

Three things:

1. He only moved to Newcasle last summer.
2. He is NOT worth 2.5 million.
3. Swansea already have Sinclair and Dyer.

Sounds like wishful thinking from our friends in the North East

Adam Barton (PNE) could move to Coventry in a deal worth £125,000

I'm suprised that Sisu would pay a penny to get this player. As we know they want to get players on a free transfer.

Graham Westley is a hard man but.......this could prove to be a bad decesion!
Some NE supporters feel that Adam still has a lot of promise.

Lets hope so for the cov..

Chelsea have offered Brazil 50m for Damiao and Neymar. Will be wrapped up very soon. FACT. {Ed018's Note - not a fact}

Surely they'll offer the money to internacional and santos rather than Brazil?

Brazil? You can't do that

Different clubs, and considering Neymar's price tag from Santos...are you saying Internacional are paying Chelsea to take Damiao? Also why would he move to a not so great Chelsea with bigger clubs after him?

Considering brazil are a nation and not a club cant see this happening also Neymar plays for santos and Damiao plays for internacional

How can you offer a country 50m

Did they offer Belgium the money for Hazard too, and Germany the money for Marin?

Brazil cant sell players?...

Neymar has a pre contract agreement with barcalona fact.. But I hear Chelsea are trying to sign victor Moses they have offered England 7.5 million lmao

So many things that's wrong with this not to mention Barca's pre agreement deal with Neymar, but as said the idea that Brazil can do a deal for two different clubs players is farcical

Neymar will cost more than that on his own

No it would be Nigeria for Victor moses
he has long term contract with them.
You cant pre contract agreements unless
you are in the last 6 months of your contract and neymar has another 4 years.Real madrid will win everything now and Neymar if he does leave will go there.

Barca have paid a fee for Neymar and they have until 2014 to pay the rest of the agreed fee and sign him.

You can have a pre contract agreement whenever

Bristol Rovers in talks with Gillingham winger Chris Whelpdale. This is the exciting midfield signing Mark McGhee was on about.

Love it to be true can't c it tho

He held talks this week, and will sign tuesday

This will cost the gas the best part of 500k as the gills turned down 600k for him at in the January transfer wiv down from Ipswich. I doubt it's on the cards!

Yes, very exciting(!)

No chance he will join Rovers, if he left us it would be for a higher division club

He's a really good player (Posh fan)

Why would he leave one div 2 team for another.this is a repeat of another post of months ago. Living in cloud cuckoo land springs to mind

Whelpdale is a big player in our team. No chance of him joining another league 2 club

No way would we sell Whelpdale to another League 2 side.He is a big part of the Team,and has two years left on his Contract,so we would be looking for around 500,000-750,000.

Would be an excellent signing and ready made replacement for Muzzy - that said I cant see us paying anywhere near what is required (especially as we only received 350K for Muzzy) - remember our club record signing remains 325,000 for Andy Tillson about 200 Years ago!..



03 Aug 2012 20:55:57
QPR's DJ Campbell to sign for Watford on Monday after having a medical today (Friday).

This would be great if it actually happened

Complete rubbish. Watford have not even spoken to him. I am a Watford fan and it's a shame we have other Watford fans posting stupid made up rubbish

No it wouldn't - we need to aim much much higher than players like Campbell / Smith and Helguson

No he wont will reunite with ex cardiff manager dave jones at Sheffield Wednesday

Watford fan get real, Need to aim higher than DJ, he would be a superb signing for you !

I wouldnt mind the ORNS getting Campbell , but agree over Smith and think Helguson has gone to the Welsh Wellie Wearers

I think dj campbell will be a good addition as he helped qpr reach the prem!, but we will have to fight off wigan!



03 Aug 2012 20:47:00
Plymouth have signed Rhys Griffiths
And Andres Guerrieri!
From Jose Q

Marcus bent to sign a one year deal tomorrow,

Obviously we all know about the Argentine but as for the other two at this point in time it seems like a mild case of footy manager syndrome

That would be a very good signing, i believe he scored 115goals in his career but isnt he playing for team in indonesia?

Where are people getting this from footie manager?? we all know bout the argentine lad but the other two, if they had signed anyone it would be on the club website which it isnt

Rhys Griffiths has definately signed!
Just wait and see! Jose Q is the man in
the know!!



03 Aug 2012 20:30:34
After failing to impress at his blackpool trial, Billy Paynter looks to stay in Yorkshire as a move to Doncaster Rovers is highly likely.

You have only just figured that out it was in the gazette last week

Blackpool lining up a deal for emile heskey



03 Aug 2012 20:25:40
akpo sodje is set to sign a 2 year deal with preston, as he has impressed pne manager graham westley.

Can't see him being offered a two year deal



03 Aug 2012 20:16:31
Cardiff are closing in on signing free agent Richie Towell and are sending scouts to Guernsey to look at non-league sensation Ross Allen.

Seems interesting heard anything about this ed? {Ed001's Note - I know Cardiff have definitely looked at Ross Allen, I don't know for sure about Towell, I have heard rumours, but nothing concrete regarding him.}

Are these two any good



03 Aug 2012 20:15:27
Peterborough are interested in free agent David Kitson, after his release from Portsmouth.

That has to be the joke of the century, we could never afford his wages!

He's on the toad in the hole now. Any club can bid.

Yeh you could but he is saying you couldn't afford his wages PUP

Posh can afford to pay higher wages, they just dont, especially on someone Kitsons age

Kitson is a player that wants wages well above his ability.

32 years old 12 goals in 72 appearances , spends most of his time back on the halfway line instead of in the penalty box and getting paid around 18,000 a week for the privelege. If any club wants to take that on then they are welcome.



03 Aug 2012 19:47:49
Michail Antonio having medical at Sheff Wed
also interested in signing adam hammill, liam lawrence and mackail smith UTO

Maybe a bit to much for us cost wise for

Nottingham forest are after these three? so i doubt the 'owls' can afford to out bid forest

Owls may not outbid forest but players may choose the bigger club, bigger stadium, bigger fan base. That's why they would choose Owls over forest.

Am a leeds fan but honestly money means a lot in football now mate so probbably forest would land theese players

Why do Sheffield Wednesday fans think there so big? In my opinion forest are a bigger club than them by far (arsenal fan)

Doubt it cos madine going to leeds for 2 mil so we will be able to afford them uto

Antonio will sign, Madine is going nowhere, Mackail-Smith and Lawrence are going to Leeds and another year without a trophy for the gooners



03 Aug 2012 19:28:38
Derby County to sign

Shane Ferguson-Left Back
Jon taylor-Right Midfielder
Alex nimley-Striker

Krystian Pearce has already signed
he was transfer listed at 200k by
keith curle and it was completed
the first day of the Transfer window
but as he wasnt coming intil
the start of the season the club have
not Comfirmed anything because of

Source-Derby Telegraph reporter

What nonsense if Derby had signed Pearce he would be pre season training with them

^He has stayed due to notts county injuries.He told me that he cant wait to prove himself at a bigger club.-Notts county fan

Its funny how he's trying to be a Notts County fan. Why would we sign another defender? CB wise we have Gjokaj, Buxton, Naylor, Obrien, O'connor and Keogh, not to mention Lelan and Galanski.... So deluded. This is the guy who said we we're signing Fegor Ogude and Jonny Russell, nice try at lying mate.

Pre season is massively just about
fitness.He was bought to fight for his place here so it wouldnt matter about him being around the squad before the start of the season as he will come in work hard in training.

Hes told fans hes off.He dosent need to move house so its not a big movement.
Are we still getting Connor doyle on loan?

Ogude? Russel. Lying again PAL.



03 Aug 2012 19:05:04
Derby county want to sign left back Shane ferguson from Newcastle utd along with striker Brett pitman from Bristol city.

Possible. Clough would like a young left back and the strikers he has been linked with in previous transfer windows include Pitman

Pitman is up for sale,500k should do it,i will pay for his taxi to derby

Since when has Pitman been up for sale? Is he on the transfer list?

Understand that everyone is for sale at the right price...but 500K - you're having a laugh

Maybe he dosent suit your style of play he scored a cracker agianst derby that saved you a point.Stead is your main striker and Baldock will be no2 or first team so pitman is at a good age where he needs games good for both teams

Pitman isnt up for sale at all, he's a great finisher but needs to up his work rate a little.. why would del sell him? when he's already said he wants 4-5 strikers and we currently have 3? (stead, pitman and taylor)



03 Aug 2012 18:41:14
Cheltenham Town have signed Shaun Harrad on a season long loan from Bury.

Good harrad is not a league 1 player



03 Aug 2012 18:22:34
Benik Afobe is set to join Bolton Wanderers in a loan deal. {Ed003's Note - confirmed just after you posted,sorry for delays it's very busy}

Good stuff,get him to stand up on his feet and he might be a good player he spends more time on the deck

Wait unitl you see him play before we make judgements

Hat trick in 30 mins... as a sub



03 Aug 2012 18:04:27
Wolves are interested in Walsalls young winger Jamie Paterson and are preparing a bid of around £200,000 for the 20 year old

Paterson played 34 games last season in league one scoring 3 goals

Source local journalist

Dnt think so

No chance

200,000 no way he is worth alot more than that stay away wolves

Wolves always nick our player

Wolves must be panicking, are they getting him in because they fear relegation this season, he is a good divison 3 player mmmm wolves are you going to struggle?

200k for him? Haha! I'd accept it to be honest but he's one of the only players who actually shoots.



03 Aug 2012 17:28:16
Saido Berahino is to sign for Shrewsbury Town on loan.

True but WBA don't want to let young players leave the club but town are interested Michael Keane of utd on loan

Michael keane is on loan to hull isernt he

No I don't think he is now he was

Town are in talks with with mitrivic and Coady of chelski and Liverpool

I dont think we need a new striker, and if we get one it is very likely Tom Bradshaw will be sent out on loan.

Tom Bradshaw is already on loan it said yesterday

Coady is a defender

Coady is a CM

Bradshaw aint on loan



03 Aug 2012 17:22:06
Swansea looking to sign Gabriel Obertan from Newcastle for a fee of around £2.5 million



03 Aug 2012 17:07:11
Fee agreed between Wrexham and Fleetwood town for Danny Roses. Personal terms need to be agreed.

Andyp MUFC



03 Aug 2012 17:06:47
Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee is currently in talks to sign goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall (Millwall) and Bangor's Ben Browne.

McGhee has stated that he would like to sign Iain Turner - so would suggest he isnt in talks with Mildenhall..

Actually Mark McGhee has stated that he has a number of options in the goalkeeping department. Turner is back at Swindon so it would be silly to put all his eggs in one basket.

It will be David James on a short term deal.. u heard it here first!

No chance he is in talks with Stoke City,over a coaching post



03 Aug 2012 17:03:22
Swansea city are interested in Israel international forward Itay Schechter, who plays for German side Kaiserslautern, is the latest named to be linked with the Liberty.



03 Aug 2012 16:49:08
Plymouth have signed Andres Gurrieri on a one year contract.



03 Aug 2012 16:36:27
Derby County have tabled a 100k bid for young Shrewsbury Town winger Jon Taylor.

Im a derby fan and i see 100k as an insult to shrewsbury

Need more then 100k

Good young player, but will not play enough for rams take on loan 12 months or player exchange

At least 700k

Its a loan till january with view to pernament exactly like the Tom naylor
deal its 350k

I think a lot of you are basing your opinions of Taylor on his stats on Fifa. He's young but can't make it in our team, i'd happily take 200k if we got offered it let alone 700k etc

I'd take the 100k for taylor. He's not especially quick and he's got minimal skill/tricks to get past players and his awareness of who/what's around him needs an awful lot of improvement

Your joking 700k nevs m8

400k plus Ben Davies on 6 month loan I heard

Hes just quick. Did nothing in league 2. Id wait and see what he does this year

He can go for 700k (GT)

He's staying, he's quick and has great potential.



03 Aug 2012 16:19:44
Fulham manager Martin Jol has made a £4.5million bid for Wolves winger Matt Jarvis.

Tranmere have completed the loan signing of striker Jake Cassidy from Wolves.

Matt Doherty and David Edwards are to join local league one side Walsall on loan.

Doherty on loan until January and Edwards on a 3 month loan deal

Dohertys more realistic but Dave Edwards? do me a favour we couldnt even afford to pay 10% of his wages for a start

I dont think dave edwards is going to Walsall, he played quite regularly in prem last season, and then to go to a league 1 side. i dont think so

I dont think dave edwards is going to Walsall, he played quite regularly in prem last season, and then to go to a league 1 side. i dont think so

Dave Edwards eeeerrrmmm no thanks Wolves can keep him LOL!

Trained with matt doherty 3 years ago at wolves soccer schools when he and another youth product made an appearance... very talented player, good signing if true



03 Aug 2012 16:19:57
Have heard from a very creditable source that Brighton are close to completing a deal for West Ham striker Sam Baldock. Bristol City appeared to have won the race for his signature however Brighton have gazumped them with a higher bid. Seen as an ideal replacement for the outgoing Mackail-Smith and could be completed by Monday.

Gus is looking for a target man, who can hold the ball up to play with CMS.

CMS isn't leaving according to Gus as he will be part of his plans to reach the premier league.

I can confirm that this is true however, the Bristol City boss and board have been trying to rescue this all day. It appears that Baldock doesn't want to move to the West Country.

This is a lie baldock is going to city because he likes what mcinnes is doing and west ham owe city money from the maynard deal so would rather he went to city

But, he has said that he doesn't want to sign for City. I am a lifelong City fan and really think it would be a fantastic signing... but if he doesn't want to join then we will have to look elsewhere. Same with Gerrard it seems unfortunetely :(

It's not about the bid - it's already been accepted by West Ham - it's about wages

West ham have not even accepted a bid for baldock,the rumour came from a bristol forum which was picked up by the local paper,source baldocks uncle

Really hope he signs for City. Quality player just what we need.
Problem being Brighton is closer to home, new stadium and all that
Wait and see

Its not about wages he wants to stay in London fact

Its not about wages he wants to stay in London fact

CMS is not leaving. gus said so himself

Brighton isnt London... Baldock will go where he is wanted! and clearly he isn't wanted at West Ham! Hope he comes to Ashton Gate.

Well Poyet is talking about signing a target man for Brighton, seeing as Baldock is 5ft 7 inches, I don't think that really adds up, do you?

Brighton are far more attractive than Bristol city at the moment.

Bullock not suited to brighton

Norwich's Daniel Ayala set to join Nottingham Forest on loan.

No. no hes not

Hope not he's best CB we have.

90% sure that this is true as Hughton has said he wants to get Ayala out on loan so he can recover his form and fitness. Plus we already have 4 CB's in Turner, Bennett, Ward and Martin.

+ barnett

Bennett? think you mean barnett whos useless anyway as is ward

Bennett as in Ryan Bennett who we bought in January, he doesnt mean barnett you drip



03 Aug 2012 16:01:31
blackburn have offered huddersfield 6mil
for rhodes.

Cough up 8 mil then he can go, how many of us have to say this? Getting boring now. Danny hudds

It is getting boring lol. 8 million upfront, forget add ons rubbish and then I'd gladly see him go anywhere

Rhodes only play in championship for town

How can you say hes worth 8 million when hes never played above league 1 he might not be able to make the step up to the championship only time will tell, id say 6 million is a very good offer should be more like 3 million untill after this season where he can prove himself at championship level

Reckon the Blackbull will have more chance of signing sir Jordan than Blackburn.

Only yesterday Grayson said no offers have come anywhere near their valuation of Rhodes & even if that figure is met theres no guarantee they would sell.. With or without Rhodes i think Blackburn will be strong favorites for the Championship title this season!
AJ the Terrier.

Look what happened to the last "star" signed by Blackburn from Huddersfield. Rhodes is too intelligent to fall for that.

Old ground again, 8 million or forget it especially for a team playing in same division as town. Put your short hands in your deep pockets or look elsewhere. Malhamterrier

No chance to Blackburn still think one of the big championship sides will buy him

Stead kept Blackburn up with his goals that season.. Fair enough he dropped off the following season but he more than repaid the 1.2m they paid.

The reason we rate an value him so highly is because of the quality of goals he scores an he has a great football brain. He makes creating space and scoring look easy. his attitude is first class. personally i think 8 million is a giveaway. He belongs and would thrive at a top 4 prem club. No dissrespect to Blackburn Fulham or Reading but he would be wasted in your teams. FACT

EVERY TEAM in the c/ship must be rubbing there hand when they play blackburn....Your manager isNOT a manager and every player that goes there this season are only going there for 1 thing....MONEY..
The venkys have one plan in mind and thats to go up in the playoff final and after that they will be off

I don't think you all understand, he may not be worth 8 million but we don't need the money and he's worth more to us if he is in the team scoring goals. An offer like 8 million is the only sort of offer that may benefit us at all. Why would we sell a player that may score 20+ goals this season for less than we have to

Why would he go to Blackburn if bigger clubs like Fulham want him {Ed044's Note - you guys taking over the website with this 1 lol like it!! and btw WHY would rhodes leave for blackburn??? he wouldn't but may if right PL club comes in

The best place for Rhodes, has always been Norwich. Are they playing it canny or is he seen as over-priced at 6M+

Who in the right mind would pay anywhere near the 8m asking price for Rhodes whos not proven at championship level never mind premiership level ... my prediction is that Rhodes will score 12 - 15 goals this season if hes lucky in a bad team... Anyone who knows the championship knows just what a hard league it is, and with Rhodes having no pace he really might struggle , hope he proves me wrong but i cant see it really..... Top price 3m... Get real Htfc chairman and fans.....

^ jog on or cough up. This time next year he will be worth 15 million plus. Rhodes would walk into any prem side. Blackburn go sign another chicken. Norwich keep dreaming. Up the town!

The fact that Blackburn are focusing more on signing players like Kazim-Richards shows how disastrously low their ambition is, worst place any prospect like Rhodes could move to. Reading would've been the best move for him, but that would've happen awhile ago now if it ever was.

I for one hope rhodes stays at town,he will struggle to get double figures this season, town will go down and rhodes can join norwich in the championship for 1 mill

Well i know Jordan was in Holmfirth today with his girlfriend as I spoke to him and wished him luck for the forth comming season. I also said that I hoped he would still be with us come the end of the month. He just shook my hand and said thank you. Wherever his future lies he is a very good person, polite & a true gent.

I'm a boro fan n half these comments make me laugh my a*** off no way is rhodes worth 8mil n no way would he cope in pl. watch him struggle in champo this season with no pace against big strong defenders htfc fans dont even know tha champo. If I was Blackburn I'd be looking at proven championship scorers I.e Bellamy, do prado, holt. Not be payin 8mil for a non proven championship player UTB



03 Aug 2012 15:50:11
Bristol City And Leicester City both have £200,000 bids rejected by Cardiff City for Defender Anthony Gerrard.

Derek McInnes missed today's open training session due to speaking with Sam Baldock and Cardiff Officials. Also Akos Buzsacky and Derek McInnes have failed to agree terms as the Hungarians wage demand is to high for the west country club.

Gerrard is worth more than this. In any case I'd much rather he stayed with us.

The manager does not get involved in the terms and conditions, that is down to the board therefore I can't see that part of teh rumour being true.

Bristol are so cheap 200k is shocking thats insulting Gerrard and Cardiff City, if you dont want him dont bid

No mention of Leicester considering they only bid 200k as well... biased much?



03 Aug 2012 15:35:15
PSG want Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole

PSG want everyone....

Cashley will go if there is a lot of cash involved.



03 Aug 2012 15:33:34
Southampton striker Jonathan Forte is being linked with a 3rd spell at Doncaster Rovers

Would love this he is a class player.

I think the idea is to sell him this time.

Did you mean classless and clueless.

He is a misfit

Misfit,you aint kidding.



03 Aug 2012 15:20:33
Justin Hoyte has officially re-signed for the club on a 2 year deal, confirmed



03 Aug 2012 14:43:32
Blackburn Rovers have signed Fulham midfielder Dickson Ethuhu on a 4 year contract for an undisclosed fee.



03 Aug 2012 14:26:32
Southampton are set to sign Morten Gamst Pederson from Blackburn, it's been made public Blackburn are willing to sell the winger, and Nigel Adkins see's him as a great addition to the left side after the Buttner deal broke down, it also adds a great amount of premier league experience into Southamptons young side.

We are looking for a winger with pace so I doubt it.


Well i have herd that wolves are making a bid for him and that he would love to play under th new wolves manger

Who in the Blackburn squad are we not going to be put down as looking to sign?

A 30 year old left winger. Can't see us going for him. Firstly we need a centre back, left back, right winger & another keeper. Secondly we're after younger talent 18-25.

Doubt it, pedersen seems a hero to blackburn, and he said hes stauing. nevertheless, love to see him at SMS, one of my favourite unsung heroes of the prem!

Agree with last post ^^^^ would love to see him at sms!

It's not the Southampton way for us to sign established premiership players on very high wages. Would be very surprised if this happened, though I think Gamst Pedersen is every inch a Premier League player

We are building a young squad,it could go either way next season, but i feel that we need an older establiished premiership player in the centre of midfield who can bring on the yonger players and also we need speed on the wings and pederson is not the quickest of players but a good crosser of the ball



03 Aug 2012 14:16:58
Leeds closing in on the signing of leicster full back lee peltier for a fee in the region of 750k

The fee is 400k,leicester fecked us about on price so warnock walked away,they came back but warnock said no at our agreed 600k so they lowered price.that is truth

Wrong actually the fee for peltier is 850k welcome aboard lee you have left a small fry club in leicster for the biggest club in the league in leeds



03 Aug 2012 14:06:49
Wolves still interested in Man City's Stefan Savic on a season-long loan. (local paper 03 Aug)



03 Aug 2012 14:05:57
Barnsley to sign hammill on season long loan with view to permanent deal. Also leroy lita on loan . James coppinger had medical yesterday 400000 deal agreed

Hammil has agreed to talks with Sheff Weds

Has Hamill not been released by Wolves? {Ed003's Note - Nope}

Hes being playing in pre-season game for wolves cant see him leaving

In your dreams both posts. Know this is a rumour site but come on rumours are something that you have heard not something you've dreamt up and posted

Wolves have confirmed that they are willing to let hammill leave the club for the right price, and have said that their is a lot of interest in him from the championship no clubs have been announced to of made a bid.

Hammill talking to weds and Brian Howard on trial at Pompey. We need a couple more players yet please mr hill

We need a defence and at least 1 winger and 2 strikers

We've got a defence, may be not a good one but we have got a defence, o brien, etutu,silva,done,and even Davis has played wide, how many wingers do we need????

None of these players will or will want to join barnsley

Hammill hasn't been linked with Sheff Weds at all. He will probably see himself as someone who can do a job for a top end Championship club but to be honest he's done nothing since he left Barnsley. Didn't even make much of an impact at Borough at the end of last season...shame really as he looked a very promising prospect at one time, will probably end up a league 1/2 player.



03 Aug 2012 13:57:39
Peterborough will be amoung the clubs bidding for Adam Hammill from Wolves, they wont get him due to bigger clubs interest but the Posh owner is on record as being a massive fan since Hammills Barnsley days

Darragh rated Hammill as the best player in the Championship in his Barnsley days

Darragh was responding to a question at the time. That does not mean we would ever buy him.

Wouldn't be a massive shock if he went to Peterborough, never came close to rediscovering the form he showed at Barnsley where he literally won games all on his own. Only problem is he is no doubt on a five figure weekly salary at Wolves - surely he'd rather sit out his contract there than go somewhere for less.

When Darragh really likes a player he WILL make an effort to get him in regardless of what anyone thinks even if its unlikely to happen, cant imagine Posh not making some sort of offer to him



03 Aug 2012 13:50:20
Derby County are Signing Alex
Nimley from Manchester City which
is part of the Tom Glick deal.

Newcastle have allowed Shane
ferguson to hold talks with Derby
to see how he would feature in their

They are also in talks with Shrewsbury
Town to allow Kane Richards to go
out loan for the season.Which could
see them make a future fee for
Jon taylor

Jon Taylor will NOT be leaving.

We dont need any more defenders,just strikers nigels got no sense if true!

^We need

Right wing cover(To become first team)
Striker(1/2)(1 to Replace Steve davies)
Left back(1/2)(Both Young to Compete)

We need a left back urgently.
Gareth roberts is the only left back
we have and is carrying an injury
therefore james bailey had to fill in there.
Michael Hoganson is on trial and SSN
and suggests deals have been given to him and Valetine Gjoraki.But Roberts is retiring at the end of this season and we will be in the same posisition again.If we get promoted buxton will be released thats why krystian pearce has been bought at only 175k that has to be the bargain of this year he has bags of potential and can be a leading prem defender at only now 22.
Buxton in pre season has been playing teams athis level league 2.

Heard Derby are looking at another Shrews player for left back position - Jacobsen

Jacobson not going anywhere.

Jon Taylor my favourite player dont go jonno or I'll support bath lol



03 Aug 2012 13:30:04
Daniel ayala in talks with nottingham forest

Norwich won't let him go

It's a loan

Crazy, I hope not, should be Ayala or Bennett to play alongside Turner as Ward is just not good enough for PL

Yeah heard this, apparently a season loan? Good signing, so long as he can actually stay fit

Hope we put in a January recall on this. He showed moments of real quality last year! Think we all like to see Barnett be the one leaving

Another Derby cast-off

Another Derby cast off? actually you had in on loan from Liverpool and you tried very hard to get him back on loan so clearly he impressed.
Quality young player and a bargain buy from Liverpool, cannot believe we would allow him out on loan,injuries are a concern but would include him in 25 man squad ahead of Ward.

Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed they will listen to offers in the region of £2,500,000 for defender Christophe Berra with Southampton, Norwich City & West Ham United rumoured to be interested in the Scotland international.
Source - BBC Sport / Football / Championship / Wolves

Berra 2,500,00? Shirley, you jest.

Why all of a sudden are we connected to everything Scottish. We have signed Whittaker and Snodgrass. We are meant to be interested in Gary Hooper from Celtic. There were rummours that Celtic were interested in Vaughan. Rhodes has played for Scotland.

For the most error prone defender in the PL last year - is that a joke - when someone said two and a half - they meant quid not million!

It's a conspiracy!

Gary Hooper is English!

Isnt Gary Hooper English?

Hope not. We need to sign some players asap but think it's better value going abroad. We need a young CB who's had some games under his belt. I hope we can sign either Kana-Biyik or Stefan De Vrij.

Yes but he play's in Scotland, I think that was the point.

Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates is hoping to take Bury's Shaun Harrad on a season-long loan.

Akos Buszacy finalising a 2 year deal with Bristol City. Expected to sign later today or possibly early next week depending on medical.

Wages too high signing for either blackburn or Sheffield Wednesday

His wages ent to high there just waiting for him to make his mind up about which club he wants to join

daniel ayala to n.f.f.c ave you any news on this ed......irk {Ed001's Note - not a thing, I would be very surprised if Norwich let him go as they lost Whitbread this summer.}

Rumours of a loan, he's been injured for a while so I guess they want to ease him back to fitness? {Ed001's Note - yeah, I spoke to the Norwich and Forest editors, both think it is true that he is going on loan for the season. Good signing for Forest with SOD's style of play, he is very good on the ball.}

Derby fan-Was on loan for us and is a very nervous player and jumps into any tackle without thinking.Be very happy if he was in your 11 come the East mids derby

He is a far better player a 18months on from when he last played in champ. This is bit of a surprise, lambert rated him very highly. Proper player for the future

Not that surprising if he goes on loan, is a decent prospect but was a yellow card waiting to happen the few (8?) times he played last season; give him a season in the champs and we get a better player back

Tranmere sign Rochdale's Joe Thompson to replace Lucas Akins who has gone to Stevenage.
Reports would also suggest that we have made 50,000 on the change round with Akins going for 75,000 and Thompson coming in for 25,000.

From the Bristol city website, Derek McInnes is interested in signing two strikers. With Sam Baldock signing soon and an interest in Steve Davies from Derby but McInnes is interested in signing Noel Hunt of Reading. Any two of these three will be great, I believe were offering Pitman + cash for Davies. Also Anthony Gerrard, Akos Busacky signing soon. #onehappycityfan COYR!!

I am a city fan too but until i hear on that we have signed these players im not going to get excited

Offer us 500k for noel hunt and he's yours

Sam Baldock is heading to Brighton on loan.

No its the bristol evening post not bristol city website,baldock has turnt down our offer,davies is not what we are after like mcinnes himself said

Offer us 500k for noel hunt and he's yours

No long term genuine royal would say that. Selling off one of our hardest workers for just half a mill? The guy will get plenty of first team starts next year for sure

Hunt will cost you at least 5m no way is 500k enough.

Hunt for 5m? have you watched his pre season? I have seen every game he has played and 500k is the right price

Hunt will cost you at least 5m no way is 500k enough.

1.5 million would be more realistic. as a reading fan I find your 5m figure laughable.

Hunt for 5m? have you watched his pre season? I have seen every game he has played and 500k is the right price

Yes because every players pre season is when they excel.. Not in the heat of the season when they're fully fit and actually competing!!

I've watched hunt in evey home game and a fair few away games since he signed for reading and 500k would be selling at a huge loss! The guy is much needed at reading

500k is nowhere near enough but 5m is to much I think he is worth about 2.5m but I don't think he will leave anyway.

Reading fan here yes hunts a hard worker but what else has he ever done won't cut it at prem level 800-900k he's gone play alf behind pog forget hunt

If Hunt goes I reacon we wouldn't let him go for anything less than 1m McDermott like him and he could do well next year.... Tbh if rather then take church than Hunt...

I was at the Bournemouth game on Saturday and he wasn't that great. Early in the second half they put on the Pog and Le Fondre and immediately our play was more cutting....Having said that Guthrie wasn't on in the first half and he made a big difference, best passer on the pitch by a mile. Marriappa was also very solid and got a goal.

Reading fan here yes hunts a hard worker but what else has he ever done won't cut it at prem level 800-900k he's gone play alf behind pog forget hunt

He set up a hat full of chances, he wins the ball high up the pitch taking the pressure off quick, he pressure opposition into making mistakes, scores a fair few and is off the pitch a huge personality that creats a lot for our much talked about team spirit.. This is why Brian never listens to fans!

Yeah but alf is better at all that and scores more is younger and the pecking order will be

hunt no good at 4th choice let him go

Preston North End will end their summer recruitment with the signings of Luke Freeman (Stevenage) and Stuart Beavon (Wycombe)

They don't have the money for Freeman and probably not Beavon either.

Haa this is the worst rumour ever regarding Freeman.

CAFC Fan, I've been watching the ins and outs at PNE. Beavon would be a good addition he runs the channels well and gives centre backs a real headache. I dont think he's a great goal scorer but he gets his share.

Better things ahead!

We've no chance with Freeman and will struggle to get Beavon.

Both these two signings will happen once proctor,barton & daley move on. FACT

Sorry u don't know much bout beavon if you say he runs the channels he don't he works hard and is buzy working his socks off to win the ball through the centre

Any Middlesbrough fc news?

Louis Saha will play in the friendly match against Scunthorpe.

Haha louis saha ? what that i can smell ? BS

No chance forsell is sighing tho and dudu

We wish, if we got him we would be promoted no questions asked. He would score goals for fun.

It is ricardo fuller he s hte mystery man playing today he is pretty good

I have heard rumours that louis saha and harry kewell will be at york today also a mystery man i think its akeeper maybe the big aussie is coming back

Looks like kewell will be at the game today and a new keeper is playing flew in today, i would also like to take a look at ricardo fuller anybody agree

Kewell is no where near the game and the keeper is a 29 year old spanish keeper named Jacobo Sanz Ovejero.

Does any body know the mystery goalkeeper is?

Thats funny i was at the game today and i seen kewell arrive in his car with 2 other guys friends maybe but he waas defo at york today thats for sure



03 Aug 2012 12:29:17
Stoke will attempt to sign two new fullbacks , Alan Hutton for £2 million and Martin Olsson for £3.5 million

Dont they both play on the same side?

Hutton is more likely now i think but not as good as olsson, however i doubt olsson will come to us now seen as Steve Keen has said that he is not for sale, plus he is injured and will miss the start of the season

Nope, Hutton right back. Olsson is a left back.

Olsson is a left back
Hutton a Right back

Kean said ollosen is not for sale and allan hutto doesent seem to good



03 Aug 2012 12:26:12
davies back in talks with jewell, and ipswich, they have put 650k on table and told cloughie, take it or leave it

It'll be leave it then - asking price is 1m, 650k is an insult to Davies' talent

We already said leave it.1 million or nothing you dont make the demands if you want the player pay the money.
There are other clubs interested with better deals so stop going on about it you cant afford him

Hopefully be the end of it don't wana see this no more

It isn't that we can't afford him, he just isn't worth a million.

You'll keep him till January, we'll offer less you'll decline it and we'll get him for free next summer. I'm happy to wait :)

The whole Davies saga is starting to get really annoying now. I say take the money and lets get his replacement in sharpish. I'll be very surprised if we get 1m for him. Great goal to game ratio, but his injury record lets him down.

Derby need to live in the real world, one year left on his deal wants to leave take the money or he'll go on a free.

Ipswich will pull out of the bidding with derby and sign him for reduced rate in jan.

Whats the point in transfer listing someone and then putting a 1m price tag on him?, Derby will end up with an unhappy player who will end up going for much less

The trouble with Davies is that Derby wouldn't have originally planned to sell him, he wants to move due to family reasons (also, he has stated a preference for the south, for better transport links to London, presumably that is where his family is based...? So links to Blackburn and Bolton probably do carry validity, but wouldn't interest the player). So really Derby are doing him a favour by agreeing to sell him, but understandably want to also get the best deal for the club, otherwise they lose out, they need the money to fund a deal for a replacement.
However, Derby fans' claims to Ipswich "can't afford" him are way wide of the mark. Obviously clubs of the football league have signed up to the new financial fair play initiative, which Paul Jewell, Simon Clegg and Marcus Evans all stated that the club inteded to implement immediately to the best of their ability, so its more an unwillingness to pay 1M, than an inability to.
Obviously he's Derby's player, and they have every right to ask for what they like for the player, but with this having dragged on all summer they may have to accept that they are going to be stuck with a player whose mind is elsewhere (in personal times) and could lose him for half the asking price in January as he'll only half 6 months to run on his contract (if they want a fee for him) or be happy to use him for a full season (fitness permitting) and let him go in 12 months.



03 Aug 2012 12:12:33
David Bentley set for talks with QPR in an attempt to revive his career

Better than wright-phillips if we get him....

Correct , but only on a season long loan deal

QPR are in Germany not looking at anyone right this second and Bentley plays in a position we don't need to fill only ongoing talks are with Ki of Celtic

Old rumour, was rubbish the first time I heard it, if QPR buy any more midfielders aside from Ki I'd be surprised

West Ham are set to sign Carlos Sanchez after offering him a better contract then another club (Bolton Wanderers) for once. It is also being rumoured that they have outbid Blackburn for Adrien Silva. WHU have also bid £1.5 million for Moussa Konate.

(Bolton Fan)
Wish WHU would stop buyin every Tom, Dick and Harry! We could do with Sanchez at BWFC and we would be the better move for him if he wants game time with possible prem football next year!

.. Suppose it's a blessing in disguise if he's only motivated by money! I would like see us turn our attention to Paul Sharner.. Can play CB and DM two positions where we're a bit light on the ground!

West ham should go away i think sam just waits till bolton go for a player and then says we will have him.



03 Aug 2012 11:58:47
Bristol Rovers are to launch a third bid for Oxford United striker James Constable, reports from the Memorial Stadium are saying 210k. If Oxford accept and the deal goes through, i can then see Chris Wilder going for Calvin Zola.

If we want him we will sign him. Would rather we went for Billy Paynter though

Paynter is at Doncaster on trial. No chance of him dropping to league 2.

210K should get Constable - will be down to the player's desire then - I wouldnt rule out Rovers making another move for Zola - believe this could be a better signing that Constable..

Doubt it will get him as he doesn't seem to want to go. The wage offer will have to be phenomenal to get him to leave.

Why do Rovers fans think a certain offer to us automatically means he'll sign for you?
We've named our price 200k. You offer it, we're happy enough to accept.
But why would JC leave us for you? he's well paid at Ox, turned down double wages and LG1 football at Bournemouth last August, and double wages at his local club Swindon. He loves OUFC, and has openly said, if he was offered a 10 yr deal he'd sign it at OUFC.
I hope you do keep chasing him tbh, cos we're all pretty sure he wont go to you, why would he want too? and your be wasting more time instead of signing someone else.

Seems like the above Oxford fan is a bit scared...

If MM really wants this guy, he will get him - that's the difference of having a class manager who has been there and done it!.

The same Courtney Harris who is now playing for Wycombe V Brentford?



03 Aug 2012 11:52:30
Byron Walker is on trial at Oldham from non league Herne Bay. He is a prolific goal scorer having scored 23 goals last season. He is lightening fast and has lots of goals to be seen on U Tube

Just watched some of the clips on that well known download site and he's definetly a full on poacher but im not sure if he can cut it at league one level

Been on trial and now back in Herne bay so doubt we will be signing him. Bit late with this as he's had 2 weeks with us. geez

Byron walker played 20 minutes against huddersfield today. He is still with the team, looked very quick but also quite light weight for league one, miguel looked a better choice. Oldham looked a very strong side with miguel in the team he held the ball up well sign him up quick dickov!!

Rui Miguel has returned to Portugal with an offer to mull over, however agent involved so still up in the air.

Does anyone know who was the player who came on to the left wing on saturday, think it was trailist b, he seemed good

Who the hell is rui miguel?

Thought young trialist liam willis had a decent preseason does anyone know if he is signing



03 Aug 2012 11:44:55
Norwich are about to bid for hooper from celtic,they want to take vaughan as part of the deal. I would let vaughan go if it was down to me. Just like whitbread good player problems kerping fit. There is no chance of brightons cms coming to ncfc, leeds can have him just not good en prem L

Ncfc matt.

I made the observation last season that CMS would not be good enough at premiership level when Lambert was apparently trying to sign him, poor technique with ball control, Brighton took him and he failed to shine at championship level so cannot believe NCFC will look to bring him in.

Hooper wont leave this season not when beating helsinki is on the cards and CL football what team in england has the opportunity of CL football apart from man utd,city,chelsea,arsenal,liverpool? none especially when he wants to be top scorer in the spl again,hooper will be here for another 2 years i say. HH

Spurs, that's another team!

I'm a Brighton fan and there is no way CMS will perform at premiership level, he can barely do it at championship!
Great engine, never tires, but that's about it. Good for pulling defenders out of position.

Newcastle have got champs league as well

Plus i don't think Norwich fc will out bid what my team Southampton didm Which was 7 million. 7 million for an unproved player in the premier league it would have been a huge risk when he's playing in a league which is a as good as league one, so scrappy its unreal. would be a huge risk for you and i don't think you will bid that sorta money for one player anyway
Spoon ;)

Surely once a player has played a minute in CL football then he cant play for another team in the CL...

The reason CMS didn't shine in the championship isn't down to his ability. as gus says, he needs a striking partner, and this will be brightons next and possibly final signing of the summer.

He'll be at leeds anyway

Craig Mackail Smith isn't being played at brighton the way Peterborough played him, Brighton have lacked balls through the defence along the ground to him last season and thats the goals he scores, he needs a good strike partner to help him score the goals that he's capable of scoring.



03 Aug 2012 11:34:11
Notts county to sign Zoko, Lloyd Sam & Forte before the season opener, With a possibility on Kieron Freeman signing on a season long loan

This is all very likely to happen. Good stuff!

Hope so! Would be great if it's true.

Zoko signed today! very good signing top player.

I will believe it when I see them coming down the tunnel.

Zoko done, Sam and Freeman next week, with trialist Juanfri instead of Forte to help keep wages down! Forte wants too much money.
Juanfri will get a year plus a year in the clubs favour.

Already signed zoko on a 2 year deal.



03 Aug 2012 11:27:23
i am a huddersfield fan and i think they are signing quinn because i went into the shop to buy a new shirt with printing and one of the women was printing a shirt with quinn and no.14 on the back. she then took the shirt out of the back door of the shop somewhere. think what you want.

Sounds like shes on the fiddle

Her last name might be Quinn......

Please let that be true. we need to get rid of anton robinson to bournemouth and get marc pugh

Bloody hope so, he's a top top player.UP the Terriers. 14 hasn't been allocated in the squad, so...who knows?

Could have been for delivery for a customer??

Is this true becouse i would love it if it was?!

Am I the only person that can't see through walls because when I have had my shirt done it is in the room at the back not in the shop itself. {Ed003's Note - My club does it in the club shop}

Blade here. Stephen Quinn played well in the play-off final against you. On big wages at the Lane. We don't want him to go, but we can see he may be of interest.....

Could be true because number 14 is vancant at the minute because the shirts are printed outside the john smiths stadium. Because grayson said one or two signings May be coming to town
from a huddersfield town fan.

Good player tho' he made the town defenders look like statues

Etuhu (Fulham) to Blackburn for 1.5m

Rhodes (Huddersfield) to Fulham for 6m (plus add ons)

Dempsey to Liverpool for 7m or part exchange with Adam (plus some)

Dembele interest mounting from a few clubs but would prefer to stay in London, Spurs would be interested when Modric leaves. Dembele will leave either this window or January, otherwise he will run his contract down. Dembele would go for 15m if he leaves in this window.

Fulham still searching for midfield replacement for Murphy and if the Adam deal falls through will turn their attention to Whittingham (Cardiff) who is keen on Fulham.

Chadli (Twente) 6.5m will arrive at Fulham if either Dempsey or Dembele leave.

Fulham looking at strikers Mbokani and a striker from St Ettienne. Still looking at loan deal for Lukaku (Chelsea) if this happens Lukaku and Rhodes will join Rodallega and Petric as the four strikers for next season.

Still expect Fulham to bring in a central defender although Baird likely to stay and can provide cover.

Why does no one every get the message? Huddersfield's valuation of Rhodes is 8mil not 6mil and never has been. Even that would only prompt a consideration between the chairman, manager and Rhodes himself

Whittingham is going nowhere.....FACT

I thought that the whittingham deal was off cardiff want to much money and will not budge on there valuation

Fullham are not getting wittingham , he just signed a new contract recently and he dosent want to move to fullham

Since when has whitts been keen on fulham.....stokebluebird

8 million wanted by Huddersfield chairman, 6 million reported on here, 2 million + add ons reported in today's papers, and I remember the Reading manager saying publicly that they would match any firm bid. Can see him going for an undisclosed to Fulham or Reading.

Rhodes going nowhere trust me and im not a hudds fan

Do Huddersfield fans not know what add ons are? And really hope we don't sign Whittingham he's not good enough.

The 8mil is up front or nothing. Town don't need to mess around with conditional add-ons, especially if its something like an extra 2mil if blackburn go straight back up, seeing as we all know that's not going to happen. If he was going to be sold, it would've been to Reading awhile ago now.

Bitter? Haha, Joe Allen will sign in the next week so deal with it.

For crying out loud i said like a million times Whitts does not want to leave Cardiff and his Girlfriend certainly does not, where did you get the source about whitts is fond of Fulham i heard and see reported offers but the player hasnt hinted once he was leaving

Rhodes is worth 14 if Dempsey is worth 7! Liverpool would be better signing Rhodes.

Rhodes is worth nowhere near as muuchh as Dempsey (15 million) rhhodes Might be worth 5million but no more then that as an initial fee

Rhodes worth 14 million and Dempsey worth 7, you literally must be having a laugh!

Etuhu deal done yesterday
Rhodes 6m will not be enough
7m and Adam for Dempsey Liverpool do not want to sell Adam
and how many striker's do u need



03 Aug 2012 10:58:43
Eddie Howe will complete Burnley's pre-season transfer business by wrapping up the 100k signing of Brian Stock from Doncaster Rovers on a 2 year
deal, and following it up with the 600k signing of
Adam Hammill from Wolves on a 3 year contract.

This will almost certainly result in Keith Treacy or
Ross Wallace being allowed to leave Turf Moor.

Stock has failed is medical twice so thats not happening

Why would we release either treacy or wallace ? Treacy is one of form players coming into the season and Wallace is good championship winger to say the least. Its not like we need the money as we have sold jay rod, will get 15% of the profit of the fletcher deal and got vokes for 150k cheaper than we expected

Burnley wont get money from fletcher deal thats why we got vokes so cheap

Swansea city set to go in for Reading midfielder Jem karacan a bid of 3.5 millionn is set to be offered

Yeah right, double that and u might have a chance!

Swansea could probably sell Reading 4 surplus midlfielders, thats one area where they are well stocked

Reading aren't a club that need to sell their beat players anymore. Jem won't leave

I think he will as he didnt agree a contract derr!

No he won't leave because this is all bs he was readings star midfielder last season so he won't be leaving as they have money and offer him a decent salary.

I agree from all accounts he is not happy with the wages Gutherie Is on or he is first choice I think he will go as he hasnt signed a contract.

I think he will as he didnt agree a contract derr!

Now this comment Ladies and gentleman just oozes knowledge and maturity from every letter.

He has rejected the contract and gone crying to the newspapers so Reading have to up their offer or risk losing him. Personally I would bite your arm off for 3.5 million. He will struggle next season way to lightweight to compete in the Prem and doesnt read the game well enough. Yes he runs around like a headless chicken and will run all day but will get outplayed in the prem week in week out. I say sell him seems like a player Reading dont need.

The contract talks between reading and jem are at a very early stage, nobody with any sense would take the first offer put to them. It doesn't mean we are about to sell him.

3.5m for an injured player would be a gamble. I hope he gets back to his best and stays. It meant so much to him that he discharged himself from hospital shortly after an operation to join in the promotion party.

Jem is our best cm.... and what he lacks in strength he makes up for in stamina speed agility and tackling ability

It's a nothing story. It's well known that Jem wants to play in Turkey one day. The newspapers have taken this fact and twisted it into. "Karacan turns down contract offer" The Daily Spar link him with Besiktas every window

The early discharage from hospital shows the desire and determination that Jem has for Reading

Jem has stated that stories about contract talks breaking down are nonsense. So there we go. The media put two and two together and got 5.

Noel will not be sold for 500K! Far to valuable to RFC, works hard and plays for the team. Worth at least 1.5 million even then Nick Hammond wouldnt listen to offers!

Errrrmmm...I'm pretty sure Nicky Hammond would look at offers for 1.5 million for Hunt.

hearing that Swindon Town are interested in taken both J Forte and L Barnard from Southampton

Would be class but think we are only after 1 striker

May be some truth in it Di Canio is close to signing a Striker & Defender & both fit the bill in what he is looking for

Hope they do it'd be good for both teams.

You might be thinking abour Ryan Dickson because Forte and Barnard are both strikers^

I wouldnt be surprised good luck to them

Barney I can believe,Forte,they must be desperate.

I'm a Swindon fan And this Barnard saga is winding me up as much as afcb fans going on about richtie, our chairman has said there is NO truth in it.

He said there was no truth in the bid, not that we arent interested in him^

Barnard would be a good signing for swindon, he was great for saints in league 1.

Forte scored 5 in 10 for notts this year, he'd be another good signing

Forte is a good player, sure he was never good enough for a regular place in the soton first team but i cant understand the slander some have given him, he always gave his all and he could play you haters off the park without breaking a sweat

Plymouth argyle set to sign patrick agyemang from QPR on a free transfer on a 2 year deal, will go through on monday

Strange that he is playing in a friendly for Gillingham V Charlton tomorrow....

He would be a good signing fletch did say he was in talks with an experienced forward

Love to see it, but can't see him dropping 3 divisions and he will want a lot more dosh than we can offer, 5% chance of happening and that's being generous.
Uncle Bulgaria.

I think you'll find he's not now, the greens offered better terms!

Where is this news being advertised. or is it just someone youve signed on FIFA 13 and thought you would share it with us all.



03 Aug 2012 10:43:17
There is no terms accepted between Joe Allen and Liverpool. Rodgers' arrogance goes hand pin hand with that of the Liverpool fans. No longer are you an attractive option. Bid has been rejected and Joe Allen hasn't at any point stated he wants to leave so the fact that papers are reporting he has agreed terms shows it is a trash talk.

I'd be happy if he didnt come

He has agreed the contract and he has said that hes looking forward

Joe Allen has bought a house 10 miles away from anfield

Joe Allen has still got three years on his Swansea contract and is still a Swansea player

Went to the game and I'm assuming it's Hogan who I was pretty impressed by...does seem a bit of a waste of time though, he may be good enough for Pro football but surely not the Championship...the game at Stocksbridge was more of a training session with a crowd.

Reports suggest Karacan has pulled out of contract talks with reading.


Reports from who? This made up tosh!

He's jealous of Guthrie coming in on a higher wage when it was Karacan who pulled the strings to help get us promoted. Guthrie will be first choice either way so if the club are too stubborn to offer him a better deal then it won't be too big a loss I suppose

BS mate if you have reports tell us who they are otherwise your obviously lying.

He would of been told noone of him ledge and guthrie are set for first team football but itll depend on form and karacan is full of form and is a fighter thus is nonsense


RFC need their head examinig. Steve Sidwell saga all over again. Pay Jem what he is worth please! As you have put our season tickets up for next season so use that extra money to keep him. Plus Danny G is on more so it is bound to wind up players who got us into the promised land.

Player rejects first contract offer shocker! This happens all the time calm down. If it gets to Jamuaey and we still haven't tied him down then panic...for a second before realising we're rich we'll just buy a replacement.

If Jem wants Premiership wages he has to prove he is a premiership player. Guthrie is on premiership wages because he has proven that.

Agree with above. So he wants Guthrie and Pog wages get real Jem you will be lucky to play week in week out. Why pay him the same wages to sit on the bench? sign a new contract or leave.

Guthrie and Karacan will play in midfield to together because legertwood will be on the bench.

Haracan playing for reading xi against hemel hempstead tonight

Swindon Town have goalkeeper Iain Turner on trial and he is expected to play a part tonight against Salisbury City, PDC has also said he is close to signing a striker, he is still interested in signing John Bostock and currently tracking another defender

West Ham to offer Ben Haim a deal and relieve Pompey of his services and the final year of his £36k a week wages plus image rights

Is he going to drive the coach ??

When a player like Ben haim has image right's, something is very wrong with football.

No chance not good enough for the prem

Hope this is true

Yes and Grant is coming back as manager!



no !

Wigan are interested in Mohamed Traore and Kalifou Traore.

You donut - they're the same person!!

Ritchie Barker to be confirmed
Crawley Manager in next 24 hrs

See how much you like his 4-5-1 formation then you won't like it

We hardly have any strikers - whoever takes over may have to use 4-5-1.

Preston may sell Adam Barton to Coventry, Jamie Proctor to Crystal Palace and Keammar Daley to St Johnstone according to local rag.

Personally i would have kept Barton, top young player

Adam barton's a decent player. could be a good signing.

Sky sports now saying barton agreed a 3 year deal with coventry what do preston fans think of him ?

They could be decent players at the right club, but North End wont miss them. They have better in all positions, just need some decent strikers now


Westley seems to know what hes doing hes bought well and we are better off without these three. Heard Mayor will be on his way soon as well

It will be interesting to see how Proctor does with another club. Personally i thinke he's League 1 standard.

Nice to see that my names being used again....or are there now 3 PNEIAN's.....Sad that Barton left, good player, had a bright future and was a real PNE fan....Westley killed his carreer after they fell out (funny, but how many players has he fallen out with now) and I (and other PNE fans) hope he shows his class at Coventry.......Good luck Adam

PNEIAN (The real one) {Ed013's Note - the one we have has an email starting finney...............leave your email when you post and we can add you to database and delete intruders!}

Barton is a good player. well done westley. another good move! NOT

Signed better ? Yea right signed rubbish on a few. Get hume in the squad

Proctor played for CPFC today

How did proctor do and what to preston fans think of him?

Well he is young so makes mistakes like every young inexperienced player does, but shows talent and could be good for the future!

PNEIAN, talking rubbish, although I agree Barton was/is a good young player with potential I'm not so sure he was a real PNE fan as you state, he was born in Clitheroe and played for Blackburn as a kid, also how has Westley killed his career? He was in the team playing well until he suffered that horrific injury, you sound like another boring anti-Westley supporter who needs to believe Westley falls out with every player!!

Nigel Adkins has admitted that Ryan Dickson, John Forte and Lee Barnard are being looked to be offloaded.

Source : SaintsPlayer

Realistic Saint

Surprisingly gossip has been zero on Lee Barnard, I can reveal he visited Amex last week. Poyet an admirer and was keen to sign 2 years ago. Source - Amex employee

Any news on who they might be going to?

Brentford will have them, i wish.

Leeds have been linked with a £1.2 million move for Burnley winger Keith Treacy.

He's not worth that much he cant even get in the burnley team so why would we want him

No thanks

Bloody hell, you can have him for that, would accept 500k

Rubbish he is in eddies plans

Good because he hasnt shone at burnley

Think we would snap your hands off for that amount

He would get in Leeds team and not burnley because burnley are a much better team

They can keep him,not worth the .2 never mind the million,

Very much doubt neil warnock would waste 1.2 million on one player plus there are alot more talented players available for fraction of that so its rubbish.mot!!!

Burnley a better team are u on glue or something burnley are 1 step of a pub team u mug

Burnley are a much better team yeah right keep dreaming

"Burnley a better team"

Ed, can I make a claim for medical insurance against this site, I just cracked 2 ribs laughing and fell over and broke my ankle........

The Baggies are looking to bring in further reinforcements before the end of the transfer window and have been linked with Alaixys Romao, as well as Lorient team-mate Arnold Mvuemba. Good source..

Unless he's beefed himself up tremendously Mvuemba will be far too lightweight for the Premier Division. Saw him a couple of times for Portsmouth the other year and he was knocked off the ball far too easily then.

Norwich City are determined to land Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt despite the clubs attempts to keep hold of their highly rated youngster,
But the prospect of Premier League football could be enough to tempt the 23 year old and make the switch to east anglia and join up with former Brighton team mate Elliott Bennett

He is going nowhere.

He is an excellent footballer but we (norwich) don't need any more mid-fielders.
Good luck brighton and Andy Crofts for the season. NCFC

Thats a surprise not a leeds player

Its not possible. Norwich have apparently run out of money already. All they have is the money from the sale of Crofts and it won't be enough to tempt Bridcutt. Relegation for the mutants this season.

Have you got a spare 5 mill for a defensive midfielder otherwise your gunna have a bad time

Dont need him defenders yes midfilders no let in 75 prem goals last season so need to spend some cash in that area a good l b would be nice o.t.b.c .......irk

We need a solid DM he is just that and would improve the squad alot

Of course we need a DM!

Sign him up McNally

All aboard the Norwich bandwagon next season, top 10 :)

Sunderland make 4.5 million bid for peter odemwingie but west brom want 6 million. Fulhan also interested

To old 3 mill max

West brom wont sell him to another team in the EPL, only abroad. also minimum price to be considered is 5.75m


Ridiculous dont make me laugh how can steven fletcher be worth 12million and Odemwingie 4.5 what a joke dont believe everything in the sun more to the point dont believe anything in the sun

Peter odenwingie 31yrs= 60apps=25gls Steven fletcher 25 yrs=61apps=22gls.... Now not much difference in the the apps and gls but you got to remember Wingie is going to be 32 soon he is definitely worth the price safc are offering WBA but I still think that fletcher is worth 12mill as he scored 22gls with a relegated club

Odem=5m Fletcher=7m

If we had a decent replacement for him then yes it would be a time to cash in. But we dont so cant see the Baggiers selling him.

Odemwingie can be replaced by saido berahino. time to bring the youth up, their hungry.

Fletcher also had a season at Burnley in the EPL.His scoring record is 96 games 31 goals a ratio of 1:3

Burnley were only in the prem one season, that's a max of 38 games!?! ^^

Odemwingie won't leave WBA this summer at least, Cox to whoever wants to pay us the most and we should use Steve Clarke connection with Jose Mourinho to bring in old man KAKA on loan for season? baggies fans thoughts on this?

Don't be pedantic.Fletcher's total EPL career is 96/31.

Odemwingie wants silverware so if he leaves it will be to a club that might challenge for a trophy... not saying west brom wont win a cup!... >_

Whoever just suggested Kaka, look at his wages and look at the wages of our highest earner

I think the value between the 2 is a bit crazy and not because odem is only 4.5 but because fletcher is 12m. the lads been relegated twice and to settle the argument odem does a lot more work for the team, if fletcher was not a british player he would be 5 or 6 million max its only the prem rules that u have to have so many bristish players in your squad that bumps up his price.... in reality if fletcher was worth 12m the odems worth 10m(cos of his age)

Killie look set to miss out on Kilwinning Rangers striker Ben Lewis who is set to join arch rivals Ayr United, after killie are in financial problems and couldn't offer the 20 year old a contract which should ruin his SPL dream.

Bristol city are close to agreeing a loan deal for david bentley of spurs

Bristol city will sign baldock and buszacy today as del boy wasnt at the open training session as it is to be believied that he was out completing theses deals

City have also confirmed that they are intrested in reading striker-noel hunt


I can't see bentley coming to city, he is a right winger/ midfielder. We have that covered with Albert adomah . Ida lovitt

No Derek said the Noel hunt one was rubbish!

You Brizzle fans are eternal optomists, I'll give you that!

Millwall to sign Charlie Austin with Henderson heading the other way also millwall are to sign 2 strikers from a non league team

MILLWALL will NOT let Henderson GO! And they WILL get another striker before season starts! COYL

OMG wot rubbish a youngster whose good , for a has been who never was..dont think so

No chance , if hendo was to go he would be replaced by a tall target man not a bobble bottle job.

Keep dreaming austin is going nowhere

No chance you'll get Charlie Austin!

From a Millwall fan, Burnley will not SELL or SWAP Charlie Austin THAT IS THAT!

I'd love us to sign Charlie Austin, but I can't see it happening. Burnley have just sold Jay Rodriguez for 7mil, so not sure why they'd let their other main striker go? Plus I think his wages + transfer fee would be too high

Millwall were looking at austin before so may be true...

Charlie Austin is a good player! He is also quite 'INJURY PRONE'

From another Millwall fan - I would take Austin for Hendo all day long - Austin is class. Never gonna happen! Do some of the people who comment on here go to ANY Millwall games???

We need to find a couple of players soon,otherwise the season WILL pass us BY!

In answer to a persons previous text,yes I DO do to some games,but through work commitments I can't get to all of the HOME games! you don'T have to be a rocket scientist! If we don't get at least 2more players in B4 the start of the season WE WILL STRUGGLE!

All I have to say as a millwall fan is WE SHOULD BE BEATING teams like Crawley! Whether it is a friendly OR NOT!

Millwall always lose to Crawley in friendlies. It's traditional.

Lower teams mostly win in friendlies example Brighton 3-1 Chelsea

Hendo is so much better than austin and he proved that last season when he still scored more goals than him despite missing over a 1/4 of the season!

Southend's Ryan Hall wants to leave Southend for Shrewsbury.

A 800k fee has been agreed and Ryan will sign a 4 year contract. Southend will use this money to buy Dave Kitson.

Where has shrewsbury got 800k to spend on one player?

Why would he o to Shrewsbury when Forest have bid for him?

No! We don't need Ryan Hall and Turner doesn't want any more players!

This hall to shresbury 'rumour' is getting extremely dull hall isn't going to leave southend this season and if he does he'll be going to one of the many championship clubs interested not shrewsbury

SUFC Tweeted just yesterday that nobody including Forest have bid for Hall.

Graham turner has said this morning he is not execpting any more new signings before the season start

This is nonsense - we would never spend anywhere near that amount on any player, let alone an average League 2 player

Were not signing any more striekrs, Hall is not leaving.

We only do free transfers and our record signing is 170k for a certain Grant Holt. some Southend fan stirring!

Your saying in a capped salary/ finance situation in this league a club will spend 800k. I think you maybe in dreamland. Even in championship clubs without parachute payments are looking mainly at free signings!!

Why do we want kitson he is useless and too expensive in wages

About kitson, i dont think we would need a player like him, i would rather go for lee barnard which has just been confirmed today by sfc that he will be leaving (bbc) just wanted to say

Hall an average league 2 player? are shrewsbury fans really that deluded a player who picked up the most assists in the top 4 divisions (25) and scored 14 goals at the same time and is attracting interest from top championship clubs ,and a fan of one of the smaller clubs in league 1 thinks he is average

"This is nonsense - we would never spend anywhere near that amount on any player, let alone an average League 2 player."

That "average" L2 player was not only our top scorer last season but has also achieved the highest assists tally in the whole of English football for the last 2 seasons running!

You got one thing right though, he certainly won't leave for Shrewsbury......

Good player, too good for Southend and too good for Shrewsbury. Should be in the Championship really, maybe more one day? will be a big loss for Southend if he were to leave. from a shrewsbury fan.

Never shrewsbury are a tiny club. ground capacity about 9,500 look they do not have 800 k

Not tiny mate, but agreed 800k for us or for any league 1/lower championship is a lot of money for a player, all Beit a good one.

Not tiny, we've made joe hart into England number one, who else could do that.

"Not tiny, we've made joe hart into England number one, who else could do that."

I think you'll fins Man City's first-class coaching also has a lot to do with that, not just yours.

It is blatantly not true, we don't pay transfer fees at Shrewsbury simply because we can't. Ryan Hall is a good player and I expect to see him in the Premier League one day, from a salopfan.

Shrewsbury can pay transfer fees - we payed one for Nicky Wroe. 800k is ridiculous though. Ryan Hall isn't worth that and I don't think many clubs in League One or Two would spend that much.

I think only championship clubs and Sheffield united, Preston and mk dons would pay this much for hall.



02 Aug 2012 23:54:50
Crystal Palace to seal the deal with Ramage and Baxter over the weekend. Also looking to sign Kyle Bartley on loan. Also in talks with Southampton regarding Jason Puncheon.

This is rubbish. baxter/ramage maybe. but i know from a source inside the club that we cannot afford puncheon.

No chance of Puncheon going to Crystal Palace. If he goes anywhere this summer it will be to Millwall.

First Chaplow, now Puncheon? I can imagine you'll get one from us (Possibly anyway) but I have doubts you'll take both. Also I'd imagine it may come as an exchange deal.

Puncheon to Millwall? You serious? I doubt he'll be leaving St Mary's and even if he does leave I'd say Palace would be more likely to take him.

Zaha for Puncheon. Nearly a done deal



02 Aug 2012 23:53:48
Talks have stalled between Crystal Palace and Peter Ramage as he is demanding wages of £9k + bonuses

Brain damage would be a good but unlikely signing. I understand Glenn Murray being shown door at Palace????



02 Aug 2012 23:45:54
Had a few people today saying Norwich buying Gary Hooper of Celtic ... any more news on this ? ...hes been linked with Sunderland , Fulham and West ham in recent weeks .... someone in my work said Middlesboro were thinking of bidding for him again ( they missed out to Celtic 2 years ago )

Wouldnt expect anything to happen untill we offload one or two (jackson/Vaughen/Martin) but Hooper out of our price range this season imo

They'll need to start off at 10million to get Celtic to even pay attention

Expect a bid of 6M would secure Hooper, and that is certainly not out of NCFC's price range, its a more a question of if the management want to spend that much on a single player.

Start at 10 million then they might consider it the days of short changing Scottish clubs are long gone

Considering Celtic have already rejected a bid of more than 6m for him I hardly think that'll be accepted

We turned down a bid of 7 million why cant people get this in there heads celtic dont need the money we r secure with money dont let rangers situation make use think celtic will let there best players go for silly money celtic offer players what half you teams cant a chance to play in europe and a chance to win trphys year in year out lol

As a celtic fan i dont want to see hooper leave but it has to happen sometime. i reckon if he did go norwich might give us either Grant Holt or James Vaughan



02 Aug 2012 23:45:04
Udinese defender Thomas heurtaux could join Watford on a season long loan as they look bolster their defensive ranks

Already got max amount of loans and we don't need any more defenders

The loans rule only applies to domestic loans - and even if this wasnt the case, if Zola wanted this guy i am sure that the Pozos would arrange a transfer even if we transfer back in a year or so

I do believe it is domestic loans! Hence the reason we got 5 in all at once!

There is no max to loans, only a max loan of 4 players under the age of 23



02 Aug 2012 23:19:56
Carlisle United have been in contact with out-of-contract Barnet striker Izale McLeod.

This is the 15 th club he has been linked with, I'm not sure he'd travel anywhere 50 miles radius of London - watch Brentford ......

This player seems to be joining every league 1 club. Carlisle would be good club for him

He's joining Portsmouth (fact)

Fact Mcleod played 90 mins for Portsmouth Wednesday night at Aldershot

Fact: Portsmouth are bust he will not wait much longer for permanent contract



02 Aug 2012 23:18:26
Anthony Wordsworth from Colchester to Charlton But not in this window. charlton will move for the midfielder if the charlton midfield isnt up to par or if somebody is sold.

600k fee agreed between the 2 clubs with charlton willing to offer a contract at anytime during this and next window but Wordsworth is waiting to see if Colchester can somehow make a strong outside push for the play offs before ultimately leaving the club. colchester know's he better than league 1, so does the rest of league 1 and so do's wordsworth.

Not happening

No way and deal will happen on if, buts and maybe's.

either he is coming or not.

Well it is, is for 500k+ Paul Hayes taking the whole total to 700-750k

Wordsworth is going anywhere just yet !



02 Aug 2012 23:17:16
Late news just coming out of Ashton gate is that Bristol city will announce the signing of Sam baldock and akos buszacy at the open training session tomorow morning deals just been signed tonight and are hoping to tie up the signing of Gerard before the Southampton game

This would be awesome news, two players we all really want to see sign.

Gerrard is probably the one we need to sign though!

We need a good centre half for the oncoming season above every other position!

That & thrashing the Gas tomorrow could complete my weekend :0)

This 100% true just a few minor hitches the deals should be announced mon/tues



02 Aug 2012 23:13:49
Bristol city have annouced they will not be renewing their intrest in derby steve davies. 'we are aware of his abouts but is not the sort of striker we want'-bcfc.

Derby will not be buying shane fergurson, or connor sammon. Just looking at chris wood

Rumours about burtons billy kee is rubish

Agree with everything apart from saying we are looking at Chris wood because we are not .Whatever the striker that comes in would one similar to Theo and Davies as Callum ball is signing a new long term contract and will be our target man there is a recall clause should he do well at coventry so have another big 6ft 3 slow player isnt going work well

Where is that quote from? You cant just put a sentance in speech marks and say thats from Bristol City.

If we sign a striker it will be a target man. Ball is at Coventry for the season. He will only come back if injured.

The western daily press i saw that yesterday

Think quoting their manager after a pre season friendly.

The speeched mark bristol comments are true, sky sports news or bcfc official site, im a derby fan iv been keeping a close eye, they dont want him as theyve had a 1.5 mil bid accepted for baldock, just agreeing personal terms.

No he's correct there was an interview yesterday and McInnes said exactly that.



02 Aug 2012 23:08:20
Swindon looking at putting in a bid for Sam Saunders of Brentford, good player would fit well in the Swindon team.

This is somewhat true as saunders was with swindon all week last week

No chance, he has not long just signed a new contract and you won't be able to afford him.

Rubbish never go just signed new contract

Sam Saunders just signed new contract with a view to another year only way he would leave is for a massive fee but can't see him leaving! I've just got back from Germany pre season tour and squad was on our flight and he is happy! We will be pushing for promotion this year! If we don't then players will go but until then bees won't let any1 go were buying at least 2 more players!! You reddddddds!

I dont think we need him, but that is wrong, we would be able to afford him, we have one of the richest boards about, we just chose to spend wisely, if need be the money is there and available to PDC

Don't matter if you have money or not it's going to cost you alot to buy Saunders and it will be above his value coz he is a main player in our team so your board won't pay more than he's worth! This is a no go! He ain't going to Swindon!!!

Swindon ? me a favour is it April fools day?

Saunders was never with Swindon all last week (prior to August 2nd) or at any other point this pre-season as he has been at Brentford's training ground along with the rest of the players! My brother is a member of the nutritional team at Brentford and confirmed he has been there throughout pre-season!



02 Aug 2012 23:07:08

Derby have bidded 500k for Wigan triker Conor Sammon

Derby fan-Old news we did this at the start they said no and ask for 2 Million we laughed.However there has been no talks of any player coming on loan

Theres loads of talk, lee barnard, nicky maynard, even billy kee

Wigan fan here u derby can have him for nothing hes shocking not worth 2 mil at all but could do well at championship level just not good enough at premier league standard he work rate is amazing i must say but heard he want to stay with latics fight for hes place



02 Aug 2012 22:53:09
Filip Twardzik due to sign on a season long loan from Celtic. Neil Lennon wants to see the winger progress in to a first team prospect, and was impressed with how well Josh Thompson was looked after last season.

Pacy/tricky winger, will light up league two.

I would like him to sub for Celtic but team might be to strong for him now. But he has some great upside and skill that he would help out and do well with this loan, really like the look of him cause his vision for play is great

He's certainly no winger!! Good prospect, but hea defo no a winger!

Neil Lennon has stated Josh Thomson is free to find a new club ashes surplus to requirement


He's a winger but Celtic have been playing him in CAM/CM and he's been alot better in the position, hopefully he goes on loan to a team that will give him first-team football for a season and see what he's got.

He plays right mid for reserves

Neil Lennon has recently said that twardzik and mcgeough are in the first team squad now and tony watt and a few others are bubbling over nicely



02 Aug 2012 22:53:01
derby have bid 500k for connor sammon and 1 mil for nicky maynard.......

Don't want Sammon but I'll take Maynard

Maynard wrong

Henri Saivet of Bordeux is a target for Wigan boss Martinez.

Martinez is also looking at Quincy Owusu-Abeyie and Giannis Fetfatzidis



02 Aug 2012 22:01:28
Reading are looking at Torquays highly rated winger Danny Stevens to bolster attacking options!

We do not need to bolster are attacking options and how is a league 2 player going to bolster a premiership teams attacking options?

Cause he will create so much

Did not write this rumour but a league 1 player helped Arsenal attacking options last year and he got a Euro spot. Just because he is in a lower league does not mean he is not good

A 5 ft 5 league two player. Stevens good on his day, but never good enough for Reading.

Mate chamberlain was championship when you got him
