Tottenham Hotspurs are front running for the signature of crystal palace's teenage hotshot Wifried Zaha they are (through various media reports ) set to offer a substantial amount to prize him away to white hart lane in january .With Arsenal and Liverpool also keeping eye on the tallented winger.

He's NOT for sale.. And we all know he knows all about Bostock.. Spurs reserves and into obscurity!

Dougie will only sell him for 10 mill plus and has said he will keep him until the last year of his contract in 4 years

Apparently there has been a delay in one of the payments for Rhodes. Huddersfield are furious with Blackburn.

Blackburn paid £8 million for Rhodes, with the £8 million payable over 3 years.

The most recent monthly installment has not arrived

Wouldn't surprise me, clubs need to stop spending beyond their means.

Would mean that blackburn would be in default of the transfer and that rhodes could end up back at huddersfield and blackburn deducted 10 points

Send the repo man round!!

Wouldn't be the first time as it happened with Stead! I believe however that the 8m was all paid upfront.

No such thing as an up front fee, certainly not with a fee that big

It was paid up front, there are extras but the earliest is 750000 if blackburn get promoted

The fee is payable over the term of Rhodes' contract ie 2 million a season regardless of add-on's. if they default then the first action will come from the football league who will warn them of a transfer ban. Ultimately if they default in respect f beong unable to pay like Portsmouth then the fee is paid by the league.

There is a clause in the contract that Rhodes can return if Blackburn default on payments and HT might just react if payments are not forthcoming

Do we (Barnsley fc) get the points back or goal difference changed if he moves back? Wishfull thinking I think.

The payment has been paid and next months will be on time as well, i really wish people would get off blackburns case

Come back Jordan, all is forgiven. We ARE going places, whereas Blackburn are definately not!

Dont want Rhodes back , he made his choice and chose the money over ambition, we are a better more balanced team without him anyway

We got 4.5m up front and the rest in iffs and maybes.i doubt we will get the rest as blackburn will do a portsmouth,joke owners/

Deano Hoyle said at a patrons meeting that the 8 mil is gauranteed with add ons over an above , dont know where you got the 4.5 from

J17 needs to come back him and Beckford will be the best attack in the championship

Reading are interested in bringing back former trainee Charlie Austin but are likely to be priced out of a move by his current club Burnley who are likely to value him at a minimum of £4m. Reports linking Reading with Nottingham Forest's Lee Camp appear wide of the mark with Reading not requiring another goalkeeper

Think you will find it will be more than 4 million m8 hes guna be on 20+ goals before christmas

His Left shoulder is strapped up every game, Kelvin Davis caused the problem he flattened Charlie.

Camp is horrific austin isnt prem quality but good champ player

barnsley to sign gary monk on a - month loan deal and hoping to bring in david goodwillie from blackb'rn on same deal .

Monk wont leave swansea

Good willies at palace until January!!!!!!

We had monk years ago.

This is nonsense we can't afford goodwillies



04 Oct 2012 13:03:46
Burnley has said Charlie Austin is not for sale unless the 8m price tag is met with a 20% sell on fee

He's worth more than that I would say 12m at the least

Trust me nobody will pay over 5 million for this guy not that he.s a bad player he has a really bad shoulder injury that will prevent a big move for the boy. {Ed003's Note - Doesn't seem to be affecting his performances }

Theres nothing wrong with his shoulder now its fully healed

His shoulder is nowhere near fully healed this is a dead cert.

Ipswich Town will not be offering Ricardo Rocha a contract after his trial came to an end.



04 Oct 2012 12:21:46
Danny Gabbidon has said he refused offers from Ipswich Town and nottingham forest before signing for Crystal Palace

Obviously no ambition

Especially with Forest or Ipswich more chance with the Palace !

More chance of playing with palace me thinks from what I see

Erm sorry mate but where are you in the league.. Ipswich and Forest really ain't all that. Palace on the up in every aspect.. Clearly chose the right team of the three..

All three will struggle this season, dont matter what the table says after 8 games,palace will eventually find their level,bottom 3

Palace will finish in the bottom 6 as usual.

Palace will finish somewhere in the TOP 6. Higher than both Ipswich and the overrated Forest. this isn`t a ripple of momentum, its a tidal wave. We absolutely murdered Forest and only got a point. Lucky doesn`t even come close.

Trust me we won't. Top least

And you've lost your manager to medium sized club bolton!



04 Oct 2012 12:13:41
Italian source TuttoMercato claim that Spanish giants Real Madrid are interested in Man United striker Javier Hernandez.

Roy Keane has arrived in Turkey, where he is expected to finalise a deal to coach with Istanbul based Kasympasa.

04 Oct 2012 18:21:00
Roy Keane is the worst coach ever, you can be a great player and live off your name for years, proof right there.

His record is good. Look what he did at Sunderland, as he said yeah he over spent but was building a team to challenge for Championship only problem is he archived this in his first year. Then he kept them in per ship. Not bad for a rookie, Bruce took over and he did not last long and he has been bantered around as an excellent coach, like really his record is only good at Wigan. At Ipswich he took over a team with 5 games to go and kept them in the championship. Reduced wage bill and sold more then he bought. Problem with Ipswich they won't give more to invest same now for Jewell



04 Oct 2012 12:02:34

04 Oct 2012 11:55:14
Stoke's Danny Higginbotham has been given the OK for a permanent move to Ipswich.

Lets hope he stays

If Danny can recover his form of 2 years ago, he will do a great job for you, he has been a great favourite at Stoke and but for his injury before the cup final would have still been in the first team squad I'm sure.



04 Oct 2012 11:54:52

Premiership scouts are monitoring Millwall winger James Henry who has started the season in great form. January's transfer window could be a testing time for the Championship strugglers if Henry continues to perform well.

Eddie Howe talking to Bournemouth

I hope so cause he is not cutting it at burnley not going again while he is in charge

Eddie Howe is a hero to many at Bournemouth but could he really put up with Eddie Mitchell and laughingly Rob(clueless) Mitchell running into the dressing room at half time

Never going to happen!

Rob Mitchell is not related and works hard for the club generating revenue and has not been involved in the half time dressing room rants. EH will be offered the Job but is unlikely to take it. Robbie fowler has applied twice before but is now more likely!

Howe couldn't get away from Bournemouth quick enough, Burnley were the third club he'd talked to before he left them in the lurch, why the hell would he want to come back.

^Heart &.....Money! :)

You can have him, he is tactically clueless in this division
