Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

TwinHammer Network Bulletin,

Ashley Young has already agreed to join Hammers at the end of the season for 5mill,

Hammers are still interested in another striker and its rumoured to be a Paraguayan international ,a real speedster, more laterWhy does everybody keep saying that baptista will definitely sign permanently. I dun get it. He has hardly played, hasnt really sparkled. I honestly believe that the only reason AW signed him is because we couldnt get robinho, whom i think will come next summer. The Torres to liverpool thing is just stupid. They might have the cash, but they arent an attractive club for torred to join. Probably Arsenal or Manutd.

One more thing, can ppl stop the vieira back to arsenal rumour. This would be most unliely since, AW, has turned to cesc fabregas and a whole younger generation of Arsenal stars. This would toatally undermind his player structure.Liverpool to finally get Neill in Jan (Warnock may go on loan to Ewood as part of the deal).

In the summer Rafa will look to replace Hyppia / Zenden / Kewell & Fowler. His top choices are Kilgallon (Leeds) / Lobos (Cadiz) / Vicente (Valencia) and Higuain (River Plate). Also don't be surprised if the manager sells Bellamy given the right price - Villa have apparently asked to be kept informed.All this will come to the end. Arsenal sign SWP, Chelsea sign Ribery and Etoo, Barca sign Robben, ManU sign Sneijder and torres in (season06/07), Liverpool sign lucas neill and young talent. to all who say carrick 15m are over price . than how about the 1 goal in 8 match old man Shevchenko 30m??Nigel Worthington is the surprise contender for the Baggies job, he will bring Dion Dublin in as player coach and sign Kelvin Davies on loan to strengthen his defence.- ARSENAL NEWS-

Should ribery be signed i doubt it would be for 18mill, lets face it. wenger would not do somethin so stupid! if he were signed it would be around the 12mill mark. however i believe we have a better chance in signing robinho(winger/striker)who i think is the better player. reyes+cash for bap+rob. And i will state agen - abidal will NOT be signed as he is no where near worth the askin price his team wants. Clichy will be LB and a.traore will be intoduced in the first team this season or next. watch him in the CC along with some others like merida and walcott. I agree that we are intereste in torres, but who wouldn't be? if wenger really wants him, he will bid plus player - but i doubt a bid will be made as he rates both bendtner+lupoli very highly. buffon will also be bid for, but if he decides to stay in italy expect bid for ustari.

9ther youngsters to be signed are nuri sahin(idolise rosicky), Asulin Guy, Bale(maybe), Gio dos Santos, gago

those to be offloaded will be ljungberg, adebayor(maybe), aliadiere(definately), song(18monthloan), laurenHad it confirmed over the weekend that mighty Mick McCarthy wants to sign Walsall wing duo Mark Wright and Ishmel Demontagnac on loan and will make permy in Jan for a fee of £600k for both of them. Little Walsall want Leon Clarke in return tho.

Dunno much about them, but Ishmel plays for England u19s apparently, he is a left winger, Wright is a right winger.


Liverpool are the brink of a deal for Nabil El Zhar. A 18 year old whiz kid. He was one of the greatest youngsters in the Under 18 World Championships. He and Lionel Messi where the 2 stars. Benitez wants El Zhar is one of worlds best talents. The tricky wide man/ striker could be a star of the future.What joker said united wer getting rid of Smith and O'Shea! Fergie see's O'Shea as a battler in midfield (hence dropping Carrick for the Arsenal game) and he's versatile. Smith is due to begin in a forward role again, which we all know he can shine in. These are two player definatley not leaving. In January United will look at finally bringin in Kerlon and possibly make a bid for Aaron Lennon (although Spurs wouldn't want to loose another key man to United). Hargreaves a 'cert!

ShaneA couple of villa rumours 4 jan when the god tht is martin oneill will b able 2 spend spend spend:the positions tht villa need 2 cover are left and right midfield will b probs filled by milner considerin villa wer so close to getin him on deadline day, also a right back is need because all though we hav agathe hes only till jan and he is only really there because of martin oneill being an ex-celtic manager so i think some 1 ike volz mayb from fulham or if we r lucky salgado although this is unlikey now tht cicinho is out for 5 months at least, mayb c another CB come in aswell along with sum more wingers to give competition to agbonlahor and moore. Villa 4 top 6 finishBaring in mind these are only rumours that i have heard!! because unfortunately my uncle isn't Sir Alex Fergies nephew!

but. . .

Ribery is wanting a move to the english premiership I presume arsenal will be the main contenders for his signiture.

Man Utd are still interested in Hargreaves and of course Torres although Torres will not be moves for untill the summer Hargreaves may move in January. lets hope so!

Simao is wanting away and is also interested in a move to england but to which club is uncertain.Championship side Sheffield Wednesday could be poised to launch an audacious swoop to bring Benito Carbone back to the club. Carbone is currently on a four game contract at Sydney FC, who needed someone to replace Dwight Yorke who went to Sunderland. Once that deal ends, though, Carbone will become a free agent again and could be tempted by the chance the rejoin the Owls on a deal until the end of the season.What everybody is nonesense liverpool r the favourites to sign villa from valencia, when we sold fernando to them it was part of the deal to get villa for a cut price of 15-18m.

benitez will also sign lucas neil of blackburn rovers for 2.5m, zapater of real zaragoza for 4-6m and may show interset in gabriel milito.I live in Barcelona and quite close to someone in the know at FC Barcelona, they told me Steven Gerrard wants out at Liverpool and wants to play for Barcelona he's had enough playing on the right of midfield and doesn't think Rafael Benitez will break up Xabi Alonso and Mohamed Sissoko partnership. Barcelona are very interested in this transfer and willing to pay up to 30 mil Euros plus a couple of players (Juliano Belletti, Ludovic Giuly, Edmílson, Sylvinho, Javier Saviola and Andrés Iniesta) This could happen this January or more likely next summer.Everton are on the look out for a partner for andrew johnson as james beattie failed in his last chance against man city watford are looking at beattie at a cut price of 3.5million everton are looking at miroslav klose werder bremen are looking at 10million and andy van der meyde more realistic targets are david nugent and bobby zamoraTo the fool who thinks he saw kaka with rick parry, haha dnt be soft, do you really think Kaka wud want to play in england wer the Weather changes more time than the real madrid management team. realistic targets for jan are lucas neil as cover for finnan and paul anderson frm the reserves breakin thru to give pennant competition for the righ wing. Kaka - hahahahahahaLiverpool will sign Gonzalo Higuain in January. This guy can be special, maybe in the margin of Sergio Aguero or Anderson. Daniel Alves and Simao are also targets.I doubt arsenal will try strenghten their midfield this year,so i woud not expect to see the likes of ribery,gago,parker etc at the emirates any time soon, if clichy does not regain full fitness this year then i expect AW to sign a left back,probably abidal or the younster bale from southamoton,but don't forget arsenal have a good collection of young full backs including armand traore whos h

ighly rated by wenger.arsenal need a gk for the ageing lehmann, maybe ustari or a suprise bid for shay given??and as for all you man utd heads out there torres has not signed a pre summer contract with yous as he signed a contract extension for last month. slater gooners4lifeI have links with many Preniership clubs and this is what i hear

Alves-Liverpool 12mil

Torres-Man U 22mil

Hargreaves to Man U 12milBarcelona are on the lookout for a new top class striker to help boost their chances of regaining the La Liga and Champions League titles. Barca will be without key striker Samuel Eto'o for at least five months following his injury against Werder Bremen last week, and boss Frank Rijkaard is now looking for a quality striker to spearhead Barca's attack come the new year. It's unlikely Eto'o will be fully fit again this campaign, so a big name will be targeted in the transfer window. Ajax forward Klass Jan Huntelaar is currently heading the shortlist, especially with Rijkaard's Dutch connections. However, Barcelona are also keeping tabs on Francesco Totti of Roma, Martin Petrov of Atletico Madrid, although he's primarily a winger, and Villarreal striker Diego Forlan.Can confirm that hasan sas of galatasaray has caught the eye of several premiership scouts but his main suitors are as roma and inter milan where he is seen as the ideal replacement for figo. sas was voted most exciting player in wc 2002 but is now available at a reasonable fee. the player has just turned 30 and is showing again his awsome power and technical vision. has not seen eye to eye with gerets and this has opened the door to a top serie a clubTo the guy who said he saw kaka with rick parry. what are u on m8? i fink u need to go to specsavers, as if kaka wud go to liverpool, go see your doctor!

now for some real rumours:

man utd to sign owen hargreaves as talks with bayern munich have progressed well over the last week. a deal worth £15million has been agreed.

arsenal selling ljungberg while they can still get some money for him, this is a clear statement that ribery will be joining.

middlesborough in the market for a goalscorer, names that have been mentioned are, henri camara, darren bent, james beattie and barcalona's maxi lopez.

that's all folks xxArsenal will make a big splash or two in the transfer market in Jan to mark Wengers 10 years in charge. He will be given the money he asks for by the AFC board and will do the following:

Wenger will look to take Ribery and Buffon to the Emirates. If AW feels he is not getting a reasonable price for Ribery then he will move for Camoranesi (will not get both). Wenger will also acess Julio Baptista's fitness/performances by Jan and if he is doing well then a deal will be struck. If not he will be shipped back and Wenger will ask for either Ramos + £ or a straight swap for Robinho (which looks more likely). He will then look to sign some young prospects which are Anderson, Ustari and Bale.

Wenger will let go of Ljungberg as he is getting on in age but will NOT get rid of Adebayor as he is still seen to have a place at the Emirates. If AW signs Buffon then Lehmann will move on, as will Almunia.

Probable Team For Next Season:

GK - Buffon(Ustari)

RB - Eboue (Gilbert)

LB - Clichy (Bale)

CB - Toure (Djorou)

CB - Gallas (Senderos)

RW - Hleb (Walcott)

LW - Ribery (Anderson)

CM - Fabregas (Rosicky)

CM - Gilberto (Denilson)

ST - Henry (Adebayor)

ST - Robinho (Van Persie)

-LM-Three things to note about Spanish giants Valencia CF, who are at the center of many rumours due to their run of great form in La Liga and in the Champions League: 1) David Villa is not for sale for any price. He would cost more than Fernando Torres; he scores more goals and plays for a bigger club. 2) Vicente is not for sale either, but if he were, he would cost at least 10 million pounds and would only go to a Champions League contending club. 3) Valencia have been linked with Carlos Tevez, but there are a couple issues - a) FIFA will not allow him to change countries twice in one year. b) Valencia will not spend more than 16 million euro on him, much less the 16 million pounds reported by some on this site. If he costs that much, he will have to go somewhere else. Amunt Valencia!Malloney on his way to Villa from Celtic in January to re-join O'NeilI'm an arsenal fan but lets not get carried away. possoble signings are:






Reo-Coker (looks almost certain after his fall-out with club and manager)

BartonWith Luke Moore suffering a huge injury blow, Martin O'Neil is looking to sign James Milner from Newcastle as soon as the transfer window opens for around £3.5 million. If Newcastle reject the move, O'Neil will even show an interest in Luton Town winger, Carlos Edwards who impressed at the World Cup. O'Neil would be prepared to offer £2 million for the Trinidad & Tobago star if the Milner deal failed!

=v1=Firtsly does anyone have anymore information on the Liverpool takeover? I told you all about Steve Morgan but since Liverpool have proved that they have the nessicary funds for the new Anfield everything has been kept incredibly hush however I've been told that the Prime Minister of Thailand has got involved??? Anyway got some news on the Vicente Rodríguez Guillén rumours that have been going around and let me asure everyone that they are just that, rumours, aside from the fact he would cost upwards of 10 million and all the other complications effectively Liverpool have 6 left-sided players. Zenden, Kewell, Gonzalez, Warnock, Aurelio and Riise all capable of playing left-midfield. Dispite this we will go after a left-sided player in Simao Sambrosa in January as his propossed move to Valencia collapsed and they then decided to buy Joaquin instead (would have been nice to see him at Liverpool, ah well ca la ve). Rafael will use him as a right-winger and fight for a starting place with Jermaine Pennant. If I was to say Liverpool are indebted to Scott Parker everyone would think I'm no Liverpool fan right? Well you'd be wrong earlier this year a centre-midfielder came out and said if he didn't get picked for England he would have to reconsider his options. Well for Kevin Nolan the time is at hand for him to reconsider. Rafael has identified him as the number two target for January behind obviously Daniel Alvas of Seville. Rafael is prepared to fork out the cash for him which surprised me when I was told, we all know what Rafael's like with money. However that doesn't mean he'll be held to ransom over Kevin which undoubtably Sam will try, Kevin has already informed his agent to find him potential suitors Liverpool being top of Kevin's wish list with him being a Liverpool fan, though his agent won't care, just which deal would put his pockets up. There was intrest in Owen Hargreaves but since he declared his disire to play for Manchester United, that instant

ly ruled him out. Aswell as Bayern Munich reporting Manchester United to UEFA for there persistance, so Liverpool getting involved would have resulted in it being more trouble than it's worth and his large price tag all contributing factors.How comes what everyone is saying on this website, nothing happens of it, everyone just come on here and makes things up, when really u need to know ur facts like i do, such as west ham r not being taken over any more, as west ham have founbd out the kia is a fraudster as well as in millions of punds of debt, so they do not want the money troubles being bought into west ham. this means that big phil scoalari is not going ot be the west ham new boss, pardew is dfoing just fine, just that he needs ashton back, with carlos up front, and west ham will be flying high like our bubbbles with in the next 4 weeks, back up into the europena places. in january transfer window, pardew to make shocking selling of nigel reo coker to arsenal for 2o million pounds, plus thio walcott for a 6 months loan period, and ljungbergon 6 month loan period with view to buy on ljungberg, u heard it her first! ozzyThe Norwich board are considering offering Teddy Sherringham the chance to become player/coach at the Canaries. Alan Curbishley is in the running to take over at Carrow Road.

=v1=If Charlton are relegated at the end of the season, if these players haven't left the club, they will move to either the following clubs:

- Darren Bent - Tottenham or Manchester United

- J.F.Hasselbaink - Reading or Aston Villa

- L.Young - Liverpool or West Ham

- D.Traore - Lille or Lyon or Bolton

- D.Rommedahl - PSV or Feyenoord or Bolton

- J.Thomas - Reading or Cardiff City

- J.Fortune - Wigan or Bolton

=v1=I have been informed that Everton will offload Andy Van Der Meyde in January for 2 million to either Juventus or Porto. Everton will replace him with Watford's Ashley Young for about 4 million. Everton will also make a move to sign Steven Naismith. Everton are also believed to be looking at Plymouth's Cherno Samba.James Beattie ready to sign for Newcastle United after agreeing terms after the Everton game at St.james Park. Only the transfer fee to be agreed.Well for those silly people that suggest Chris Sutton is going to join Villa are wrong!

As he has past his time and not even O'leary was that dimb!

Shaun Maloney on the other hand shall sign for Villa for £3mill

so will David BECKAHAM on a 6month loan deal from Real as he has no 2st team football and craves it!

With David Trezequet following him to Villa park! for £13mill

as Villa park and its training ground shall go through significan't changes

and planning to build a University for thr Acadamy kids to study after school

All true a Cleveland Brown!
