Answers to two question. Riquelme was the player that popped up on Everton's website as the new signing.

As of Monday second June West Ham had not accepted the offer from Liverpool for Yossi Benayoun.


 Gabriel Heinze to move to Liverpool in the next seven days, he prefers a move to Anfield rather than abroad as he is settled in the North West


 Rangers pair Hemdani and Sionko off to France, Strasbourg, Nancy and Lille interested. Gers hope to bring in £2 million pounds.


 Aberdeen have rejected Rangers bid for Michael Hart, Gers have now offered 200k for Robbie Neilson of Hearts


 WBA and Aberdeen want to sign Ian Murray of Rangers, player has one year left on his contract and is not part of Walter Smiths plans, a fee of 400k should see a deal being done


 Sasa Papic of Rangers whho rejected a 750k move to St Etienne earlier in the transfer window might be on his way to France, to PSG and Paul Le Guen. fee will be the same and despite Papic stating that he wants to fight for his place at Rangers, he is keen to work with Le Guen.


 My contact in the club says that Robinson has failed his medical at Sunderland and will return.

He also said: –

Hartson will go to Swansea for nothing.

Murphy (Hibernian) will sign this week.

Robbie Fowler has been offered a 10k per game pay as you play deal.

Wallwork will join Sheff United on a five year deal

And Albion are to lauch a £3 million bid for Nacho Novo.


 James Beattie will remain an Everton player next season regardless of whether or not Nugent or any other forward eg. Smith is signed. David Moyes still believes Beattie is a quality player due to his performances in training and despite his lack of goals, he will hit excellent form again as he he did January before last.


 To the guy who wrote this "West Ham will be selling Yossi Benayoun to Liverpool within the next seven days, although Portsmouth have shown late interest. These are factS. I coach at West Ham. " Will you please stop writing Bllocks. If you really were a coach you would not be writing this stuff on a rumours website; if your club caught you then you would be given the chop. Admit it to everyone you are not a coach, but drive one, actually no, you drive the Nr 35 bus past Upton Park and you are just spreading rubbish.

Will poeple please stop spreading rubbish.

Back to the proper rumours. I was the one who brought you the Martins to Arsenal rumour months ago, and it is going to happen. There is plenty talk in the club about the deal being sealed within the next few weeks. My best pals brother has broken into the 1st team at St James' park over the past coupel of years and I get info from him. Also, expect moves for Richard Dunne and Senderos over the next few weeks



 Norwich boss Peter Grant will complete the signings of David Marshall, Julien Brellier and Czech forward David Stoihavka by the week's end.

Safri, Hughes and Gallacher appear to be on the way out, with West Brom, Leeds and Aberdeen their likely respective location.


 Nottingham Forest will sign Teddy Sheringham in the next 48 hours.


 Fernando Torres had his medical at Anfield yesterday he will join fo 26.7 million

also Liverpool will sign

Mancini–13.3 million

Heinze–5.5 million

Diego Milito–13.7 million

Benayoun–4.2 million


mark gonzalez–2.8 million

Hyppia–1.7 million


Luis Garcia has already moved

who else Lfc want

Tevez–24.8 million

Pedersen–10.0 million

McCarthy–12.5 million

these trasfers are unlikely


 Leicester could complete their following touches to there promotion push with signings of Manuel Pablo (Deportivo) Lee Hendrie (Free Agent) and Karl Dugiud (Colchester JoeB


 Rangers and Kilmarnock have almost reached agreement over the transfer of Steven Naismith. The size of the fee is now acceptaple to Killie only the way the payments are structured has to be finalised. Expect this to happen on Wednesday as all parties want it finalised before Killie jet out on Thursday for their pre–season tour.

Carlos Cuellar expected to be confirmed at the same time after Osasuna accepted a bid of £2.7 million

After missing out on Faubert, Walter Smith's plan B will now kick in to action. This is almost certain to be a £3 million move for James McFadden of Everton. Alan Smith has been strongly linked but he may just be out of our price range but do not rule out free transfer moves for Robbie Fowler and Julian Brellier.


 Ex Ipswich and Bulgarian World Cup forward Bontcho Guentchev is said to be interested in launching a takeover bid for the Suffolk side.

He is said to be leading a consortium of ex players which includes John Wark, Alan Brazil and a group of venture capitalists.

Talks are said to be at an early stage with any possible takeover not likely before January 2008.


 I am not going to divulge my source for this rumour in case it effects the company I work for. Source A has informed our department to research a male by the name of Javier Saviola regarding work permit issues and termination of contract clauses. This request was issued on behalf of Peter Lawell, whom I believe to be chief executive of Celtic Football Club.

The Source


 As it has now become clear Chelsea will make a bid for Florent Malouda, Liverpool will dive at the chance of signing highly rated winger Ricardo Quaresma, he is thought to have a buy out Clause on his contract of £14 million.


 I have it on excellent authority that the only players likely to arrive at Plymouth Argyle over the next few weeks are Stephen Jordan, Danny Simpson (loan from Man United) and Scott Sinclair (loan from Chelsea). That is it. No more.


 Liverpool will be signing:

Fernando Torres for £25 million, not 27

Daniel Alves for £17 million

Jose Reyes for £7 million since Arsenal cannot sell him

Nedum Onouha from Manchester City for £4 million or Heinze for £5 million (unlikely)

Liverpool will raise cash for these by selling:

Djibril Cisse to Marseille for £6 million

Craig Bellamy for £9 million

Lui Garciafor £4 million


 Take it from me there is no chance of Bellamy returning to Celtic. When he was at parkhead before, my friend (who is a profesional footaller in the SPL) met him in a carpet shop and asked Bellamy what he thought of Glasgow

"its a shhole" he replied


 Charlton will sign Maik Taylor and Neil Danns from Birmingham City with Amady Faye going in the other direction. Also a fee has been agreed with Southend for Freddie Eastwood who will decide whether he joins Charlton or Watford in next few days. If he goes to Watford then Charlton will go after Nathan Ellington for around £2–3 million


 Arsene knows Please stop all of the Kolo Toure rubbish he is going to be at Arsenal for the rest of his career.

Just heard major news that Arsenal will sign Bakari Sagna and Curtis Davies. Arsene has also expressed an interest in Onjen Vukojevic (Dinamo Zagreb) who is a defensive midfielder.

It has also come to light that Arsenal have got an option to sign Gio Dos Santos (FC Barcelona) through the Henry deal.


 A source from Fulham football club has told me that Lawrie Sanchez will complete the signings of both Chris Baird (Southampton) and Leigh Bromby (Sheff. United. ) By the end of the week, apparently Sanchez rates both of these players very highly and is going to shell out £2.5 million for baird, and £1 million for Bromby.

Also expect Runstróm to start next season alongside Diomansy Kamara.


 ''P. S any Evertonians know anymore about the clubs statement refering to a wrongly published player signing on the site. thanks''

What it was, was that when publishing the new Everton look, the programmers accidentally forgot to remove example news stories. Therefore, the Riquelme signing is probably nothing more than a Bluekipper fan who was asked to create a story to give an impression of the site format, and relished the idea of Riquelme joining the Goodison faithful. That is all.

I also said yesterday about all the staff due in at Goodison on Thursday. I did not know what it was about, but seeing as Sheff United lost their appeal, it will probably be the Jagielka signing.


 I've heard from a good source that Celtic will buy another three players this summer and they will be hamill of Liverpool on a season long loan, Freddy Eastwood for £2.5 million and hart from aberdden for 500k. leaving will be

Gravesen £2 million sheff you or Sunderland

Jarosik £1 million russian team or Derby

Miller £2 million Manchester City or reading

Balde free lens

Beattie West Brom done deal

Zurawski £2 million Chicago Fire

also Liverpool will but Torres, Alves, SWR and Chivu


 Sheff Wednesday will follow up the signings of Burch, Grant and Hinds with the capture of Julian Gray (freebie from Birmingham) and a renewed bid of £1.7 million for Southampton's Kenwyne Jones. Steve Watson is also expected to sign on a freebie from West Brom later this week.


 Heinze deal to Liverpool is all but completed, and Ferguson is absolutely fuming. But Heinze wants to go to Anfield to join his Argentinian mates Masch and Paletta.

Torres deal also nearly done, but expect two more big names Mancini and/or Simao appear to be Benitez's preferred choices, but Mirko Vucinic of Roma, Antonio Cassano have been mentioned.

He is also interested in Bojan Krkic and Giovanni dos Santos from FC Barcelona.


 Aston Villa rumours

Now O'Neill has landed his man in Reo–Coker expect a series of bids in quick succession for the following.

. Maxi Lopez

. Glen johnson

. Daniele de Rossi

. Craig Gordon

. Liam Rosenior (part of the Stephen Davis deal)


 Emerse Fae will complete his £3 million move to Reading in the next week, leaving a forward and a winger the priority. Steve Coppell is still keen about Bobby Zamora but his interest has fallen on deaf ears. Michael Chopra has also been watched as has Queens Park Rangers's Lee Cook.


 My niece works within the public relations dept of Aston Villa FC and tells me of rumours going about of an Italian defender being drafted in by O'Neill during this transfer window as well as a bid for FC Barcelona's Ludovic Giuly on the cards, On top of this two proven Premier League youngsters are being lined up for moves to Villa Park.



 If you look on Arsenal's website at 1st team

you will see new addition, the silva, you will not see Henry, Lupoli, Mumba, so why is the beast still there? maybe he is staying after all



 As I am a groundsman at the ricoh arena I saw iain Dowie with a couple of players taking a look round the stadium but as iwas over the other side of the pitch I could only recognise one players and that was Lee Hendrie and the other 1 I think was Ipswich forward Alan Lee

Sky Blue 4eva


 Official Shaun Wright–Phillips has passed a medical and signed a four year deal at Upton Park.

By Friday, West Ham will also unveil the signings of Juan Requelme and Jermaine Defoe. Harewood is leaving to join Pompey for £4 million and Etherington will become a Derby player in a £2 million deal. I am not talking rubbish. Shaun Wright–Phillips chose WHUFC based on a substantially higher basic salary compared with what Villa offered. Can't reveal the name of the club official who told me this



 The City rumours recently posted were utter rubbish and are clearly what the fan who posted it would like to see happen, Corradi leave for £3 million? He joined for £2.2 and has been crap, how is that going to happen? Hamann, Samaras, Hart and Jihai will also not leave + we will not get £2 million for Dabo. Although we have money now, our rep is not that great, we'll be looking to sign a couple of Swedish players and Wilhelmson is a big favourite and shouldn't break the bank, following will be Yakubu and another winger/forward


 Huddersfield Town are close to signing Michael Coulson from Barnsley, and are hoping to wrap up a deal for Darlington's Julian Joachim
