I have heard this too, strong links with him going to portsmouth after turning rotherham down

Portsmouth and Rotherham aren't in the east Midlands.

4 Championship Clubs have been in contact with Colchester United over the availability of Anthony Wordsworth.
Millwall, Peterborough, Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic

Colchester United are holding out for 500k for the player.

Henderson and Coker look to be leaving Westons during this transfer window.

Colchester are looking at an experienced forward to join on loan with players like Michael Chopra (Ipswich Town), Bradley Wright Phillips (Charlton), Rob Earnshaw (unattached) and Chris Iwelumo (Watford) being mentioned. Also although Jabo Ibehre turned down a contract at The U's a renewed offer is set to be tabled..

Earnshaw still a Cardiff player

05 Jan 2013 00:55:06
Derby county are already talking to wordsworth about a summer move.You cant hold out for 500k hes out of contract and has said he wont sign a new deal.So its take what you can get

Ashley Grimes to have a medical on Monday ahead of his move to Shrewsbury Town.



04 Jan 2013 21:30:20
Yeovil Town have been linked with Finnish striker Tim Vayrynen. The giant 19 yr old FC Honka player signed an extension to his contract earlier this year but is unlikely to turn down the chance to play in England.

I meant last year, January to be precise. Still thinking it's 2012 haha



04 Jan 2013 21:19:49
I thought people would have posted more about this by now but according to Italian papers Southampton have had a bit accepted for Italian CB Davide Astori, said to be 10 million euros, so around 8 mil pounds, according to his agent he is open to a move.

Adkins is normally so evasive but when mentioned he praised the player in his pre-match press conference before arsenal, so a deal sounds likely.

Cagliari are struggling financially, so i doubt he is on a high wage, therefore i don't wages will not be a problem,

I do not know however whether clubs such as Napoli and Juve will match Saint's bid

Saint 93

Terms agreed I hear



04 Jan 2013 21:17:48

Danny Kearns - £150k - Bradford

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing -

Posh will be bringing in:

Nick Powell - Loan - Manchester United
Anthony Wordsworth - £300k - Colchester United
Jamie Vardy - Loan - Leicester City
Jacob Butterfield - Loan - Norwich City

Colchester won't sell Wordsworth for 300k

04 Jan 2013 23:23:21
i think you will find he's on a lot more then that. thats why he turned down ipswich

Why does everyone seem to think MK Dons have money?? We don't! 300, 000?!?!? Not in A million years could we afford that! Our chairman would have a seizure at the thought of that kind of spending! Never, ever going to happen! FACT!



04 Jan 2013 20:29:24
If carlisle fail to land joe garner, if he choices to go to preston. They will use the wages they where going to offer him to sign Delap, who has always indicated that he wishes to retire at Carlisle; they will also clear out welsh on loan and bring in a defender on loan Remi Streete from Newcastle. If any other player becomes available who they can afford and would improve the squad they will be open to signing him



04 Jan 2013 20:24:57

york city will bring in craig malcolm from stranraer



04 Jan 2013 20:01:53
Jack Butland to join Fulham very soon

I hope this happens but he will probably go to another club

04 Jan 2013 22:45:36
I would not be surprised David Stockdale will join Hull City so Fulham need a replacement and Butland will take over from Schwartzer eventually,



04 Jan 2013 19:36:11

Wenger signing a over 30 year old... cant see that wouldn't that be admitting he'd been wrong all these trophy-less years??

04 Jan 2013 18:09:06
Hull city are set to make a 275k bid for brad potts and carlisle are due to spend that money on joe garner

It will take a bigger offer than that t get him im afraid try at least double that

Heard that Sunderland are willing to pay 4 times that amount at least, a defender good enough to play at midfeild at under 19 england level and eric kinder who coached saying he is almost identical to phil jones who he coached aswell {Ed003's Note - Done, could you do me a massive favour and leave a tag/nickname when you post again please}



04 Jan 2013 17:49:53
Leeds signing blackstock for 700k and chris burke for 950k.

This is 100% true blackstock and tongue on the way to leeds

Whichever Leeds fan posted this, clearly doesn't follow the news seeing as Blackstock has already signed on loan to Ipswich until the end of the season. Sounds like a lot of people are after Burke though. {Ed003's Note - It's McLean who went to Ipswich today.}

04 Jan 2013 22:45:17
we are gonna get manucho from real valliodad also

04 Jan 2013 22:56:50
if blackstock goes it will only be in part of a swap deal involving becchio.

04 Jan 2013 23:46:29
It's mcgoldrick who has signed on loan at Ipswich from forest, someone else clearly does not follow the news ! {Ed003's Note - and McLean,Leeds never had an interest in McGoldrick}

Peterborough's George Boyd subject to 8 bids since the opening of the January window . 2 from premier league teams, 6 from the championship. Source - Posh chairman darragh mcanthony on tv

04 Jan 2013 22:32:58
Good job he must be on 7k a week at Posh, could bring in two decent players for that, he will be on the wane, outstanding technique, no pace, thanks for the service George Boyd....TAXI

Apparently boyd is on 10k+ at posh. darragh mentioned in his news interview that clubs were surprised when they found out what he was on, could be a potential stumbling block for a move?

Everton have seen how well young players are looked after at Cheltenham with good reports from last season and the way that Luke Garbutt was looked after and given an opportunity.



04 Jan 2013 16:43:20
Cody McDonald and Roy O'Donovan to go out on loan, good riddance got Bailey, Moussa just need Blair Adams now and I will be a very happy Sky Blue I think the 3 of em have made a massive difference come on Mark Robins you can get him.

Sly Sports reports: Astori's agent confirms the player is wanted by Saints (amongst other clubs) and both Cagliari and Astori will consider offers with a possible departure this month.
I saw this guy play a couple of times in Italy. Class act and great signing for whoever buys him.

04 Jan 2013 16:02:25
Cheltenham manager Mark Yates is looking to loan Jimmy Spencer from Huddersfield following Chris Zebroski's departure. Spencer spent last season on loan with the Robin's.

Good move, not championship standard but will do a good job for Cheltenham.

Could be a good move for the lad although i think hes had an injury



04 Jan 2013 16:12:38
Leyton Orient - Ed Upson of Yeovil Town 100K

1. Why would ed go to a club who are worse than his current club. 2. Ed is worth more than 100k {Ed003's Note - I'm worth at least 1m ;) }

04 Jan 2013 15:43:59
Middlesbrough supposedly looking at Colchester United's Anthony Wordsworth

Dean cox sign two year deal with orient

sorry Peterborough fans

Don't think he was ever on the Posh radar.



04 Jan 2013 15:21:08
any rumors about players coming in for cov. If so who?

Nathan Doyle (Bradford Midfielder) is number one target for mark Robins if Sisu can get the money. Apart from that i've heard Robert Earnshaw (99% a lie) and Nahki Wells is apparently planned, he's scored 15 goals so far in League Two.



04 Jan 2013 15:19:40
Gavin Tomlin seen outside orient ground with agent probably going to sign for the O's

For a price of 50k

So it will be a great signing and ibrbe the Mk dons attacker just taking a medical test so deal done with ibrbe so let welcome him back



04 Jan 2013 15:17:08
Colchester looking at Aston Villa keeper Andy Marshall on loan



04 Jan 2013 15:34:15
Bradford have launched an audacious bid to land Crystal Palace forward Aaron Wilbraham on loan till the end of the season

Please Bradford let this be true!

He was playing Prem for Norwich not so long ago. Target man; possible replacement for Hanson?

I will drive him to Bradford if true

Plz plz plz let this be true be a really good signing for us and he be to good 4 league 2

04 Jan 2013 21:20:30
Audacious? We have had him on loan before and he is not exactly prolific with the goals and regular at championship level. Not so sure he is what we need at the moment. Izel McLeod or Grant from Rochdale is much more prefered to deliver our extra firepower.

Yes please! Yours sincerely a crystal palace fan.



04 Jan 2013 15:31:39
: news coming out of ashton gate is that midfielder Jody Morris has LEFT the club. With numerous clubs such as huddersfield, bournemouth after the 33 year old, where will he go? Odds on to go to huddersfield with best friends Jon Stead and Lee Johnson.

Getting boring now, Huddersfield do not want Stead. Not interested even at any cost. Journey man at best.

Bristol City fans: stop trying to get people to believe Huddersfield want Stead back, or for that fact any of your players apart from possibly Adomah who I doubt would want to come here anyway. We are looking at players who will benefit us, not send us down with you lot.

He has been seen in bournemouth



04 Jan 2013 15:28:07
Chris Zebroski has left Cheltenham Town following the mutual termination of his contract.



04 Jan 2013 15:02:19
QPR will release DJ Campbell to Crystal Palace later in the month when they secure a replacement.

DJ Campbell has publicly stated that he does not want another loan, next move will be permanent. DJ has been offered a contract with ITFC, should QPR agree to a transfer with a fee rumoured to have been agreed in principle should they decide to release him.



04 Jan 2013 14:54:13

04 Jan 2013 14:46:29
Lee Barnard in talks with Crawley over
loan until end of season with view
to permanent deal later.



Could mllwall afford the pos £35, 000 wages?



04 Jan 2013 14:39:39
Portsmouth FC are looking to be interested in the free agent Adriano Basso. Portsmouth only have Simon Eastwood between the sticks who doesnt seem to be the long term solution.

Basso comes with Championship know how and will start training with the club next week.

Colchester are also interested in Basso



04 Jan 2013 14:38:18
Paul Benson looks set to make his move to Portsmouth a permanant one with Swindon looking to offload the striker from the wage bill. Portsmouth will take Benson as they currently have only one senior striker at the club.

Will be either month to month contract or loan. Cant do proper permanant transfers.

After this month they should be able to and Benson has already turned down Bradford this week. He wants to stay at Portsmouth.

On his way to shrewsbury portsmouth have no money and swindon want 50k for him



04 Jan 2013 14:36:52
Portsmouth FC are interested in signing Swindon midfield player Alan Navarro. Paolo Di Canio wants to rid his wage bill so he can bring players in to boost his promotion push.

Navarro would like to stay in the south and sees Portsmouth as his destination.

Yeah seems about right we were after him in the summer but we missed out as he went to swindon, worth a shot hey?

Swindon will be releasing 3 players this week aswell, trying to get their wage bill down to bring new players in for promotion push.



04 Jan 2013 14:36:24
swindon matt richie will sign for bournemouth as soon as the agents fees are done

Stop with this rumor please it old im a afc b fan and im fed up he will not leave swindon

How many times? He won't leave, but if he does it certainly won't be another league 1 team, especially not Bournemouth!

Bournemouth will only be signing a left back as cover, Eddie Howe won't be signing anyone else as in his eyes he has the squad to win this division. Why sign Ritchie for say 1 mil then have to replace him and the rest of the team in the summer ready for the championship season, Ritchie is not championship class and neither are a few of our lads so money will be spent next summer on a lot more quality. With the financial caps now in place money has to be invested wisely. This is a non starter.

Think ritchie will go however will cost Bournemouth 1 million plus Tubbs

We are after Taylor from Shrewsbury not Ritchie, Ritchie is not fit to lace Taylor's boots!



04 Jan 2013 13:55:21
MK Dons in Advanced talks with Forward Billy Mckay

Fee in region of 300k I heard

It's feasible as we're forever linked with anyone making a name for themselves in the SPL due to having Alex Rae watching games up there a lot but not a chance at the fee mentioned. We don't have two pennies to rub together for transfer fee's

300k?? Ha ha ha? We couldn't muster up 3k, let alone 300k! {Ed003's Note -



04 Jan 2013 14:29:00
Jamie Vardy to sign for rotherham on a season long loan from Leicester



04 Jan 2013 14:28:22
Crawley to sign Anton Robinson on loan from Huddersfield Town.

As A Hudds fan, I can safely say that the only place for Anton Robinson is somewhere like Farsley Celtic or Stalybridge etc. Even there he'd probably still be benched most matches.

If there is a god this will happen

He was never given a chance to show what he can do.He could'nt be much worse, than whats playing now.

Hope this is true but can't see Crawley covering his wages so part good news, hope they cover at least half his inflated salary.

Thats a bit unfair to Farsley Celtic and Stalybridge. I think he should go and be a sub at Birmingham city on a 3 year fat contract....

I've never had anything against Robinson as he never had a decent run in the side, no midfielders shone under Clark as his tactics usually completely bypassed the midfield! He was a good player for Bournemouth before we got hold of him.. Think Crawley could be just the move he needs & this rumour could have legs in it!



04 Jan 2013 14:31:24
Burnley are set to bid £2m for Swindon Town winger Matt Ritchie.

If they do that then they will get him, thats our asking price, if its met he is gone..... Simples...

Would get him for a lot cheaper than that with Swindons cash flow problems, already had an embargo this season

I thought the asking price was 2.5m

As a burnley fan would be surprised if we had 2 mil to spend with the club already saying there not intending to spend this window



04 Jan 2013 14:19:51
David Sullivan son has treated chamackh has signed a 6month loan deal not sure as yet if it becomes permanent at the hammers



04 Jan 2013 14:14:05
liam trotter to Leeds United in £1.5 deal with varney going the other way

Would be a great deal for us but 1.5m plus varney still only makes a max of 2 pretty sure millwall will want more than that for him



04 Jan 2013 14:13:49
Southend United look set to send John Spicer out on loan to Forest Green in exchange for Brogan. Both deals could switch to permanent deals by the end of the season.



04 Jan 2013 14:12:29
george boyd to Leeds United

There's 10x more chance of him actually staying at Posh than him coming to Elland Road. Nice thought though



04 Jan 2013 14:10:55
I heard that 24 year old box to box OFI Crete midfielder Lampropoulos is in discussons with the Posh in order to join them with a 70, 000 fee. The rumour is coming from the player's agent, anyone else heard about this one?



04 Jan 2013 13:54:11
Free agent Craig Fagan is wanted by Colchester to boost their attacking options. Fagan is a former U's player and has been without a club since leaving Bradford in the Summer

04 Jan 2013 13:51:02
Swindon being linked with a loan move for Blackpools Gerardo Bruna



04 Jan 2013 13:39:33
Bristol city forward Steve Davies is wanted by Millwall for 1.5m.

Bristol signed him for 650, 000 in the summer after a good season with Derby. Why would his price increase by nearly a 1m after a steady half a season?

04 Jan 2013 18:11:34
All these rumours about possible signings are great, but while Mcinnes remains in charge not much is going to happen. How long have we been waiting for a commanding centre back, Mcinnes said that he couldn't wait for the transfer window to open but who has he signed? Danns has gone back to Leicester, adomah is away for 6 weeks, Davies is rumoured to be leaving and the only transfer activity is that he has sold pitman !

Yes i agree and until all us city fans wake up and the board wake up and give mcinness the boot the better he hasnt a clue and if we stick with him its league one football next season from now an ex season ticket holder



04 Jan 2013 13:37:55
Michael Dawson, Tom Huddlestone, and Frimpong to Sunderland with Frimpong on loan.

Why would dawson go to sunderlaand when he is getting forst team football at tottenham



04 Jan 2013 13:36:30

Danny Graham going to snub Reading in favour of a move to Norwich as he wants to play with his good friend Grant Holt

He would be a good signing for us same type of player as holt but with more pace

Get in lol!

04 Jan 2013 17:39:41
^ Danny Graham is not fast at all and can't score 1 on 1's...we won't miss him much at swansea if he leaves

Also why would he go to Reading who are likely to be relegate?? or go to a mid table norwich...

Why do Norwich want players that aren't standing out at Swansea? surely we are in competition with them more than most



04 jan 2013 13:27:32
jay emmanuel-thomas (ipswich) is a target for crystal palace and millwall.

Mick McCarthy know he has potential and won't want to let him go, especially on the cheap.

04 Jan 2013 19:50:57
Mick McCarthy doesn't rate him.He hasn't figured in his plans since he became manager.JET will be be gone now or in the summer.



04 Jan 2013 13:22:49
Southampton looking to tie up two centre backs with in the week

Davide Astori & Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik

Hooiveld is off to Leeds

Southampton also looking at Derbys Mason Bennett

Also expect Yossi Benayoun to come in on a 6 month loan as cover for the injured Lallana and Mayuka who is at the african cup of nations

I also hear that NC is working on another marquee signing in an attempt to follow the Ramirez deal

Hooiveld wont be going to Leeds....he is the only real cover in case Fonte or Yoshida get injured or pick up a ban. Seems like Leeds want most of our

I know we're in for Astori. That's been confirmed. But Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik is a very difficult player to get. Hooiveld may be leaving St Mary's the window considering his lack of game time and our obvious desire to bump him further down the pecking order through bringing in players. But to Leeds? I thought he would be heading home to Holland. Sounded like he may be headed to FC Twente seeing as they are apparently loosing CB Douglas at the end of this season.

I don't think we need a new set of CB just one to add competition and to really sure up the back line, Mason Benntet sounds like a good prospect, Derby seem to have a few good youngsters at the moment Hughs sounds good too

Your gonna need big bucks to get Mason Bennett. He is one year younger than will hughes and a striker. Yes he hasn't been in the first team like Will but still extremely highly regarded by the the members at Derby County.

But those 2 players are cb's so if they sign then Hoovield will be 5th choice...

If we get astori and kana-biyik hooiveld wont be looked at, if these 2 deals happen i could see hooiveld leaving

Astori wouldn't be a marque signing for a team which "could" get relegated this season? We need to be careful & offer the right contracts.

Benayoun would be great back up & Hooiveld should look to move on, good player but won't get any where near the 1st team if we get another decent CB

This would be exactly what we need. As much as i love Jos, i just feel nervous when hes at the back

Astori & Kana biyik would be extremely good signings and would give us fantastic rotation options & competition for places.

We could very well go from haveing one of the worst defences to one of the meanest.

With NC's negotiating skill, dont be suprised if this happens



04 Jan 2013 13:19:37
Shrewsbury Town have been linked with a Ashley Grimes move from Rochdale.

Good stuff if true



04 Jan 2013 13:17:48
MK Dons look set to accept a £500, 000 bid from Derby County for defender Shaun Williams.

A league 1 player out of contract at the end of the season. 500, 000 i don't think you would get that and Derby are not buying any players this January without departures first.



04 Jan 2013 12:36:56
Bradford City to sign Peterborough winger Daniel Kearns

Would be a good buy, would of like to of seen more of him at peterborough

Hope so good player

Nonsense! We have wingers coming out of our ears! We need a striker and a full back.

We got 1 good winger thats it the rest need to go



04 Jan 2013 13:15:08
Ross County will complete signings of League of Ireland youngster Rory Gaffney and Hans Age Yndestad of Tromso on deals until the end of the season by Monday.



04 Jan 2013 13:14:31
Ipswich have signed David McGoldrick (Forest) and Hull City striker Aaron Mclean both on loan until end of season

Great signing mcgoldrick 18 goals in 22 games and McLean is a very strong a powerful striker

Mclean a powerful striker ? works hard but cannot score to save his life



04 Jan 2013 13:04:44
West ham look likely to sign Marouana Chamakh from Arsenal possibly meaning Rickie Lambert will stay at Southampton.

Ricky was never going anyway, he is a Saint and will remain a Saint, a real legend like Matty, so go blow your bubbles elsewhere!

Hes staying anyway

Of course Lambert is going to stay at Southampton, I didn't realise there was ever any doubt.

Of Course Ricky Lambert will be staying at Southampton. He's not worth it for any other club anyway. Good luck with signing Chamakh.

Rickie was never going in the first place so this post is irrelevant

Possibly! If Wet Spam actually made a bid for Lambert then their board must be as dumb as their fans. Sweet of 'em though to offer a job to an Arsenal under achiever.

Lambert was not planning on going anywhere.........?

Lambert was ALWAYS STAYING at Southampton.



04 Jan 2013 12:59:32
2 transfer roumers that are from a
reliable source; Danny Graham will
sign a 3 year contract Undisclosed Fee
from Swansea. He has spoken with
Michael Laudrup and the situation is he
is no longer part of his plans at Swansea.
Expect him to be signing with West Bromwich ALBION in the within the next 7 days.

Also Craig Gardner will be coming to West Bromwich Albion but not until the summer because Albion are looking at younger players that play in a similar role to him.

That would be brilliant.

If they take graham, and then gardner the young pros will be further behind the queue, no wonder they want out, stop messing around and just get lampard,



04 Jan 2013 12:57:58
Micah Richards to sign a 3 & 1/2 year deal with QPR next week for around £5m. Dawson will not be joining but Livermore is very possible either on loan/permanent deal.

Richards worth treble that, and to good for qpr

Triple the offer as we get 20% of any sale on him, so yea please buy him for more than 12 million.

We knew when we had him at 14yrs old he would be one for the future and a greats ell on clause was put on him when City bought him.



04 Jan 2013 12:35:40
Notts County's Alan Judge is interesting Blackburn Rovers as Dunn and Pedersen are going. Fee around £800k.

Why let him go for 800k when we turned 1 million down already

Mcgoldrich gone to ipswitch

Because people will not pay so much for him if he is a free agent in the summer

The same Alan judge that was released by rovers a couple if years ago because he wasn't good enough?



04 Jan 2013 12:34:33
Marc Laird has signed an 18 month contract with southend following hes release from Leyton Orient

It's a done deal



04 Jan 2013 12:27:15
After completing the signing of Derek Boateng, another midfielder will join. Wilson Palacios who nearly joined in the summer will join this window.

Madlung will also join to play alongside Hangeland

Chris David has already signed according to . Boateng has completed a medical and FFC are attending a work permit hearing today. Likely to be a done deal by Monday. Palacios, dont know and dont really care. Madlung a possibility and also apparently in the frame for Vegard Forren.



04 Jan 2013 12:18:21
Brighton have bought in Vitalijs Maksimenko who is a Latvian international and he is having a medical and will be announced to be part of the club within 48 hours

Quite true. signing for the development squad.

Nicky Bailey from middlesbrough to QPR £1 million.

Latest boro news is that josh mcechran could make his boro move permanant in January transfer window also boro have made an enquiry for WBA midfielder graham dorrans and are interested winger Alan judge from notts county would be class and a center back to top it and wer dun cum on then PLfootball next season.

If we get dorrands i dont care

Mceachran wont join on a permanent as h sees his future at Chelsea but we might sign him on a permanent if we get promoted, dorrans is worth 4 mil bit can see WBA accepting around 2.8 mil nd judge would be great we need cover in midfield and I reckon a striker should be looked at nd a centre would be greata loaner from a Prem club...sell emnes nd Bailey as well

You talking about dorrans as if hes a world beater he carnt get his game in the pl nw and thats that /if we get dorrans josh and allan difrent class and young



04 Jan 2013 11:52:19
Harry at QPR is desperate to do some loan deals.

Already enquired about Lampard, Parker, Dawson and Anelka.

Lescott is another option as is Sneijder although wages are an issue...

It would not be Harry if he was not burdening a club with new financial problems, so you can expect half a dozen big earners coming in.



04 Jan 2013 11:50:04
Heard from a friend who works at Norwich that Danny welbeck may be on his way on a Loan deal

Ho, ho, ho. *Shall I stay at Old Trafford and play a part in their run to another championship and Champions League that will both help my England chances or.... go and play at Norwich and learn how to fall over by playing alongside the wonderful Grant Holt.......hmmmm, decisions, decisions*

Or stay at Old Trafford and get lessons from Ashley Young, the best in the business?

As a Norwich fan I can't see this happening, however, to the second poster...grow up.

04 Jan 2013 16:06:29
hope not ! he is one of the most over rated players in the prem, if he didnt play for man utd he wouldnt be any where near the England team !! morison could score for man utd with the amount of chances they give the forwards

Could go on loan not norwich though

Stick around at Old Trafford and do **** all. Though he is no doubt a great talent he has next to no game time at Man United. How is he suppose to improve his chances of playing for England when he barley even plays? He has Rooney, Van Persie and Hernandez in front of him which means he is right down the bottom of the pecking order. He barley even gets benched. Going on loan to a Premier League club like Norwich will give him game time and a chance to shine. Although I highly doubt this rumour it is more then plausible for him to go on loan.



04 Jan 2013 11:46:37
Chelsea look to tie up deals for Taison, Bernard and Markovic. The latter two being loaned back to their respective clubs.

Falcao and Baines will have to wait until the summer.

Alexander Pato the young Brazilian who a lot thought would be a mega star is moving from A.C Milan to Brazilian size Corinthians for around £12m {Ed013's Note - He has already moved}

Just what HTAFC need when their main strike force are both loanees ! get a grip you person ! Dorans is rated by his club at 4 mill which is over inflated but i would suggest a striker or 2 to replace rhodes would be what Larry needs to do

Reading to sign Robert Kelly academy player from Northampton scouted. Possible free transfer.

On the books at Everton as a teenager.

Definite talent, could be a real squad boost.




04 Jan 2013 11:37:14
West Bromwich Albions Scottish midfielder Graham Dorrans is set for a move to the championship according to WBA boss Steve Clarke. Currently sinking championship side Huddersfield Town are looking to bolster there options in the middle and according to a reliable source Simon Grayson is eyeing up the 25 year old centre mid to partner Keith Southern and Adam Clayton in the heart of his Huddersfield side.

Clarke has also said that he will only be allowed to leave if someone pays them 4 million.

WBA have made it quite clear that he's available for transfer. They aren't looking to loan him out and want around 4m for him. Add to that his personal terms and he's an expensive buy. Do you see your management paying that?

With Dean Hoyle Huddersfield look as though they could afford Dorrans and with the 8 mill from the sale of Jordan Rhodes this deal is highly possible

Yes, I do. Maintaining our Championship status means everything and we have money to spend, should the right player become available, and we are able to agrea terms. WTS

If there's any legs to this at all, it'll be purely down to whether Huddersfield's management think Dorrans would benefit the team enough to warrant such a large fee. Could see them spending up to 3mil, but 4mil would be pushing it a lot in my opinion.

04 Jan 2013 17:05:24
I'm not saying you don't have the money. It's just that with the cash you could get players who could improve the team in all departments, or a single expensive signing like Dorrans. 4million and an attractive wage over, let's say a 3 year contract will take a big bite out of that 8m.

No way would we (Hudds) spend 4m on any player, nevermind one that can't get into his current team! Can we have abit of realism please!



04 Jan 2013 11:32:36
Norwich City looking at Celtic pair Kayal and Gary Hooper.

Sunderland keen to tie up Tim Cahill on loan.

Newcastle enquire about Loic Remy but might turn to Danny Graham at Swansea if deal for Remy can't be done.

If it comes off, it will be a good move,
for norwich,

Would be too expensive to sign both in January but would like to see hooper join! He's always wanted to play in the BPL and he said he would like to play for Norwich after the Norwich vs Celtic game!

Would sooooo love Hooper to join. What a signing that would be. Progress being shown by the club. Going back to where it should be!

04 Jan 2013 17:48:12
hooper wont be joining in january. i suspect we were not there to watch him, cannot afford his wages or transfer fee right now! but i would fancy us to have a go in the summer if we stay up. If hes still at celtic that is..Personally think Sunderland will come in with a "Fletcher" style offer and that will be that.

Hooper would be a massive player for us at Norwich, it's either join now or stay till the end of the season and play in the champions league.



04 Jan 2013 11:32:17

Celtic reject £4.5m offer for Beram Kayal from Norwich City

Where did u hear that he is happy and his international teammate just arriving cant see it any news ed {Ed003's Note - It's is just speculation as far as I'm aware because Houghton was at the game the other day}

04 Jan 2013 17:49:53
doubt it seeing as we havnt tabled any offers for anyone according to CH press conference, and we certainly dont have 4.5mill right now to spend on one player. that would break our transfer record.

That would not break Norwich's transfer record; we payed 5mil for Bassong with add ons



04 Jan 2013 11:28:32

Strong rumour is that Town are set to sign QPR's Rob Hulse this weekend. Charlton in cup tomorrow so talks are locally available to Grayson.

Harry Kane to be recalled by Spurs from Norwich as bid has been tabled by Millwall

Hope so. Then hughton might realise we need 2 strikers brought in not just one. For me id say get graham and Hooper. Not just one of them. We need numbers. If were not going to extend the stadium in the summer we should spend the money and make sure we stay in the league for next year when its worth big dollars.

Wouldn't bet against it as he did well for Millwall when he was on loan there last season...

I really hope this is true and as harry was class for us last season and would softern the blow being robbed of Chris Wood.

04 Jan 2013 15:41:16
I'd take that Harry Kane would be an excellent buy but think he's destined for spuds first team for years to come

Hope this is true love to see kane back in a millwall shirt great future

He aint destined for spurs first team at all. championship at best

Better happen, he's too young and he's too much of a beginner to go straight in the top flight. As soon as he's out the the way we'll be using Simeon Jackson until we get new players in and injured, loaned players come back.



04 Jan 2013 08:12:54

04 Jan 2013 10:40:34
Huddersfield are leading the way to signing Dale Jennings from Bayern Munich as lad is wanting to come back home (Liverpool is commutable and Town have players who live in Merseyside so transport wouldnt be a problem for him.) Town also keen to invest in a new free transfer keeper - Steve Harper and Craig Gordon are thought to be in the thoughts of Simon Grayson. Another suggested target is midfield playmaker Jermaine Jenus. JJ is back at Spurs after an unsuccessful loan at Forest.
Lets watch and see if any of these come off or not!

04 Jan 2013 16:14:55
personally I would welcome those signings.



04 Jan 2013 10:40:27
According to AC Milan chief Galliani, Pato and Balotelli are on their way to Arsenal FC. When asked about a possible move for Mario Balotelli in this transfer window, Galliani made it clear they were not looking at him and said a London club was on the case already. He also said Pato was also being monitored by the same 'London' club.

Pato aready joined corinthians...Arsenal wouldnt pay Balotelli money.

Pato corinthians 12mill

Burnley fan here, you dont want him, he came to usat a bad time under howe, not the best championship nanager as proven, so he did find it hard, but in all honestly i m glad we never got him.



04 Jan 2013 08:51:25
Some news for Ipswich and Watford fans. Now, you may or not believe me, but I have been on this site several times with transfer information, and everyone's it's been right. So, up to you.

Jonathan Hogg, IS set to join Ipswich Town from Watford. My understanding, is that, although Hogg has been a regular for Zola's side this season, Zola is willing to part with the midfielder for the tidy some of £1million.

Now, from what I gather, Zola is willing to sanction this move, due to the fact he wants to raise funds, to sign 2-3 of the currently on loan Udinese players, most notably, Matej Vydra, who has been a revelation for Watford.

I also understand, why Zola is willing to part with Hogg, is that, John Eustace is close to a return to first team football, and extending Nathaniel Chalobah loan until the end of the season. Watford will look to use there connection with Udinese to bring in another centre mid for the outgoing Hogg.

Now believe of that what you will, but Jonathan Hogg will be an Ipswich player. This will most likely see the departures of Nigel Reo-Coker and Andy Drury.

Reo-coker will most probably leave, because in summer he said he would like to play for a top team and i got a sneaky feeling that crystal palace, because of where they are, would get him.

Why would Watford need to 'raise funds' to sign the Udinese loanees?

The same people own both clubs

Zola doesn't need to raise funds for the signings, as udinese and Granada have the same owners so the transfers are free {Ed013's Note - Still need money for wages and bonuses etc}

Tbh Ipswich can have hogg, hes ok player but lazy at times.

How stupid are you, why would watford sell their best midfielder, why would he want to go to a poor side and why would watford need to raise funds to sign a player from udinese when they are owned by the same people.

Zola doesn't sanction transfers Nani does

Oh please, this Hogg rumour is getting silly now. He is NOT joining Ipswich.

We don't need the extra funds to sign the players permanently, thanks for the choice, I choose not to believe in this whatsoever

The deal for Hogg is very doubtful unless a suitable replacement is lined up before hand.

Your reasoning for the deal though isn't accurate. Watford don't need to free up transfer funds for the current loanees as the players are already owned by our owners, the Pozzo's, so it doesn't make sense when the Pozzo's are putting Watford finances in order.

The deals, as i understand it, will be free transfers or nominal fee's as any future profit gained from these players will end up in the joint coffers of Udinese and Watford.

Udinese, Granada and Watford are owned by the same clubs, so we don't need to sell Hogg to raise funds. For 1 million though I wouldn't be too distraught, he's a solid midfielder but doesn't offer a lot on the ball. I'd still prefer to see him stay though, always good to have an anchorman.

04 Jan 2013 13:47:23
Complete rubbish. Eustace has been told he can go along with Iwelumo, Dickenson, Forsyth, Garner and maybe one or two others that arent regulars. Udinese to loan us another 5-6 players, owners aim is to get wfc up this year as they want the money to increase all 3 teams squads as you get more for being in prem than you do if you combined the Italian and Spanish league together!! I was told this by a current wfc player!!

Definantly not true, hogg has just said he wants to finish top 6 with us in an interview on the watford observer

Yer this is just a rumour, no truth in it whatsoever. And the person who stated that Hogg is an OK but lazy player obviously hasn't watched him play as he never stops running and is constantly tackling, covering the defence and also getting forward to join the attack at every opportunity

Haha why persist with one, it's never ever going to happen. The only players Ipswich have ever got from Watford are are the ones watford don't want any more - Tamas Priskin, Scott Loach.
Ipswich would have to pay a fortune to prise him away.
As for the guy who said he was lazy - take a look at him when Watford play Man City on Saturday.



04 Jan 2013 08:46:19
Steve parish has said Wilfred Zaha will NOT be sold in the January transfer window. So all you Arsenal, Man U, Tottenham fans don't waste your time posting nonsense rumors. {Ed039's Note - Chairman says player wont be sold in transfer window ............. must be true then)

04 Jan 2013 09:02:58
inside info says zaha is off

Think he added "never say never". If the deal included loaning him back to Palace for the rest of the season, it could still happen.

"Think he added "never say never". If the deal included loaning him back to Palace for the rest of the season, it could still happen."

......... Zaha's Palace through and through, he's come out and said he wants to help us get promoted. Our Chairman's said not only will he not go in January, but that it'll take at least 20 million, which nor United, Tottenham or Arsenal have.



04 Jan 2013 08:38:09
Shangai Shenua (who signed two former chelsea stars, Drogba and Anelka) are looking to buy scott parker and adam le fondre from Tottenham and Reading.

Thanks so much I've been down lately. But uve made my day with this one!
Maybe come up with another. Like Newcastle offer 5 mil to resign Guthrie. . Haha. Thanks for making my day !

Why would they want le fondre he's not for sale and they have drogba and anelka.

Le Fondre is NOT leaving Reading!



04 Jan 2013 08:26:55
Huddersfield Town made enquiry for Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper. Also interested in signing Craig Gordon should the Harper deal not happen

Also heard the Harper Hudderfield rumor - hoe we dont let him go.... great back up

Had him on loans years ago and still classed as the best keeper we've ever had. Would be a great signing even at his age.

Strong connection as he played for us early in his career, fingers crossed as Smithies needs strong competition to produce the goods week in, week out.

Would prefer Craig Gordon ahead of Steve Harper but there's more chance of the Harper deal happening

Super Stevie Harper made himself abit of a cult hero at town in his short loan spell.. Always been a top keeper & if it wasn't for another top keeper in Given, he would have made many more career appearances.. Would be great to have him back with the terriers because i know he enjoyed his time here!
Newcastle were the 1st team I can recall making any interest in Smithies as a 16yr old academy player but he never signed but i recall the rumour!

Will Buckley has signed a four year extension to his Albion contract committing him to the club to 2017.
Sorry you sad saints fans but you are not getting our man

As a Saints fan this looked a half decent signing but I'm pleased for you and him that there is still a player with a sense of loyalty

Loyalty?? he is at his third club in three years, he will leave for the money

Doesn't mean anything it just puts the price up



04 Jan 2013 07:07:36
Middlesborough and old Baggies boss Tony Mowbray to persue Graham Dorrans from WBA as he has played under his before and it will be closer to Dorrans hometown of Glasgow, Cardiff and Leeds also interested

Aston Villa are believed to be interested in manchester city defender Joleon Lescott

Hogg will not be joining Ipswich Town, he will be going back to Aston Villa as his loan has run out. fml.

Watford signed him from Villa over a year ago. Get your facts right

We all knew this day was coming. Let's just hope we can sign him permanently soon.

Hogg signed permanently for watford in august 2011. and will not join ipswich as he is a first team member of the squad

04 Jan 2013 10:42:06
What do you mean "we all knew this day was coming"? He permanently signed for us in August 2011.

Bradford, Preston and Rotherham are all keeping a close eye on oxford united captain jake wright. he has been superb for oxford all season and a swap deal for johnny mullins of rotherham could be on the cards. plus a move nearer to home could sway him

He will cost a lot of money

04 Jan 2013 15:41:44
no way! we wouldnt give johnny mullins away again! great player!

Agreed. But then so is Jake Wright!



04 Jan 2013 00:48:46
Baggies looking to deal with Swansea using Dorians in a swap foe Danny graham. Huddlestone on loan is now also a very strong rumour

Heard a rumour about huddlestone, but dorrans wouldnt go to swansea, he wants to leave to be CLOSER to glasgow

Heard that Huddlestone is on his way to WBA on an initial two month loan, but won't play in the cup game against QPR this week-end, and they've had three official approaches for Dorrans, Sunderland, Southampton and a Championship Club



04 Jan 2013 00:33:27
Pulis and Coates ready for a significant loss on 6million signing Wilson Palacios..Stoke looking for around 2.5million for the former Tottenham in Mexico interested but remain unknown..Could be on his way to Southampton, Reading, Fulham or QPR also..!

He was 8mil? i cant imagine them taking 2.5mil id ask for 5 and take about 4

He was 6m. Stoke signed Crouch 10m, Jerome 4m and Palacios 6m on transfer day last season.

Palacios is 100 percent true, know someone who is friends with his agent Fulham want 6 month loan with view to a permanent deal in summer

Palacios is 100 percent true I know his agent fulham want 6 months loan deal with a per enact deal in the summer

Flint Mountain's highly rated, tough tackling central defender Stuart Buxton is set to sign for Chester FC as they look to build for next season.

Buxton has been courted by many WPL teams as well as Crewe and Tranmere.



04 Jan 2013 00:02:53
Whispers in Leeds that they have agreed a 1.3mil deal with Nottingham Forest for Dexter Blackstock and Lewis McGugan, and a 200k deal for Tonge from Stoke, to be completed at the weekend. Bit skeptical about this myself, but these are certainly realistic targets. I'll reserve judgement until I see them in the white shirt.
