Middlesbrough want to sign swansea city full back Dwight tiendalli when his contract expires in the summer other targets are

Will Grigg
Dwight gayle
Albert adomah
Nick Powell - loan
Will Keane - loan
Josh mcechran - season loan

Tiendalli's a good player. I wouldn't necessarily start him every week in the premiership but his been solid every time he's come in. Played very well against spurs last week. I think he'd do very well in the championship. Would be a snip on a free.

No chance - Dwight Tiendalli won't lower his sporting ambitions. Can't see this happen.

06 Apr 2013 14:17:39
no chance midds will get gayle from posh, even 5 million won't swing it as we couldn't replace such a potential

I really hope tiendalli doesn't leave, he has given 100% every time he has been chosen and deserves a contract. As for if he can make championship level the answers is yes.

If it wasn't for trying to accomodate the home grown in the squad Tiendalli would be signed up. great signing for where evre he goes - if Championship, they'll love him, but have to agree, not sure he'll want to drop down a tier.

Is they're anyone that Blackpool are trying to sign.

The laughing policeman

05 Apr 2013 21:15:36
they trying to sign some fans as the ones they have now are dire but that's just like the team

A new groundsman pitch Is atrocious

Swansea seem to be leading the chase for young Chelsea keeper Courtois, as it seems Michel Vorm is off to Barcelona to replace Victor Valdes.

Surely Swansea would look for a back up, with the German keeper impressing when Vorm was injured.


Hasnt courtois just extended his loan with athletico madrid for another season? {Ed018's Note - nothing has been decided regarding Courtois just yet}

Its interesting how everyone is happy to let Vorm go. Shows how good a job Tremmel did. happy times.



05 Apr 2013 20:24:20
Stevenage will re-sign striker Ben May in the summer.

Very much doubt this, he scored 1 goal in 27 games and never had a run in the squad was always injured or sub, we were glad to get rid of him

Graham seemed very keen on Anthony Elding, when at Pne. Now evidently Elding is scoring well with Sligo Rovers at the moment. So I would like to see Elding at Stevenage next season.



05 Apr 2013 17:13:24
man city will sign pjanic this summer

Just because dzeko mentioned it doesn't mean it's happening



05 Apr 2013 17:13:02
wba closing in on corluka



05 Apr 2013 15:31:58
Jon Paul Pittman of Oxford attracting interest from Cheltenham Town.

Plans for OUFC for next season:


In (targets):
Scott Davies
Matt Spring
Matt Harrold
Scott Nielsen
Diego De Girolamo (loan)

Pretty much all the players on the ' out ' list are out of contracts end of season. Not sure where the ' Ins ' come from. Who has targeted these players? Nothing locally or o forums, press etc and its not certain, or is that me wishfull thinking, that our management trio are on their way out.

05 Apr 2013 23:46:05
I'm a sheffield united fan and you will be lucky to get de girilamo in the summer because he is out with cruiciate knee ligament damage so won't be fit until at least september/october and if he was fit he would probably in the first team because we are struggling for striker lol

08 Apr 2013 19:32:15
But at OUFC we only sign injured players and not give out medicals!
The opening post is on a wind up anyway.



05 Apr 2013 14:41:09
Jacques Maghoma & Damian Reeves talk offer to join Kilmarnock for pre-contract summer



05 Apr 2013 14:15:23
Fulham transfers
In: Douglas, Chadli, Guorcuff, Reither ( perm), Manolev ( perm), Enoh (perm) & Bony

Out: Davies, Rodellega, emmanuelson & Frimpong ( loan returns). Stockdale Trotta

Trotta won't leave



05 Apr 2013 13:47:52
Derby chasing Burton striker Billy Kee with either Conor Doyle or Callum Ball going in other direction as part of deal.

Balls better than Kee so not chance. Derby will not be signing Kee. Bang average striker in league 2.

The strikers Derby are chasing are:

Will Grigg
Kevin Davies

Would love Ebanks-Blake, very good Championship striker when played regularly, but doubt that would happen, wages will be between 10-30k a week. Derby won't pay that. Davies too much too, maybe even Waghorn.

Grigg seems like likely target. Young, out of contract, cheap fee. Fits the Clough bill

Lets be honest ball is not better than kee, but still can't see him being a target, unfortunately there appears to be prem interest in Grigg now

06 Apr 2013 13:11:48
Know Callum Ball from time spent in Beamont Leys bookies, watching him back Leics' whilst recuperating from an ankle injury! never a good sign, nice lad and tall but injury prone and often played by Cloughie at centre back in reserves. Scored great goal for cov vs arsenal, shame he cannot keep that sort of game up. Going nowhere on loan and will come back pre-season unfit and unwanted. Burton would do him good though if move goes through!

Know Callums dad Johnnie and he's says his agent is negotiating a summer move away from pride park for Callum, part of deal for another league one striker. won't say other than he is northern irish international.



05 Apr 2013 13:29:52
Rumour originating in the Italian football press that Chelsea enquired about Vydra in Jan and were told 20 mill Euro's.



05 Apr 2013 13:06:44
Arsenal not given midfielder Conor Henderson new contract and charlton are favourites to sign him in the summer

Is he a good player?

Good player but has been unfortunate with two serious knee injuries

Makes sense, we need 2 cm and he will be free and young, good deal



05 Apr 2013 12:58:56
Coventry City are certain to have their points deduction upheld, so Manager Steven Pressley will have the summer to plan for an assault on promotion from League One. He will have a very small budget, so will look to promote a few youth players to play a more prominent role in the first team (Jordan Willis, Ryan Haynes, Callum Wilson, Leon Lobjoit to name a few), as well as bringing in couple of more senior players. He is interested in bringing Aaron Martin back in on a season long loan, as well as completing the permanent signing of on loan Derby County midfielder, James Bailey. Jacques Maghoma (Burton Albion), Lyle Taylor (Falkirk) and a few young, Premiership loanees (a central defender, a winger and a striker) are on Pressley's radar.

Due to the financial fair play rules, a couple of higher earning players will be moved on, as will some fringe players, making rooms for some fresh talent.

Outs - Nathan Cameron (out of contract), Kevin Malaga (free transfer), David Bell, Cody McDonald, Gary McSheffrey (out of contract), Stephen Elliott (out of contract), Callum Ball (loan return), Richard Wood (out of contract) and Jordan Stewart (out of contract).

Lastly, the Preston Haskell takeover WILL go through, just not as quickly as fans will be hoping.

David Bell and Cody McDonald are not out of contract in the summer

Sadly Sisu won't leave



05 Apr 2013 12:52:15
Barnet winger Jon Nurse has been linked with a move to Peterborough United and Doncaster Rovers.

Source: a club coach

32 year old really fits posh profile lol

Please please please get him away from Barnet

Harry forrester been spotted in burnley today, The brentford man has been in superb form this season and is attracting interest from championship clubs such as ipswich and blackpool, aswell as an unnamed premier league club.

Ive been told this too. might not be anything in it but there you go

Could be true. Dyche knew/trained him when he was a youth player at Watford before his head was turned and went to Aston Villa, then relesed on a free to Brentford to restart his career.

Could be true but he wouldn't be spotted in burnley atm the transfer window isn't even open until the end of season anyway

Nowt will happen till the summer. All guess work.!

07 Apr 2013 14:57:44
Forrester says he will leave on a free unless Brentford get promoted. Had a good first half of the season been out of form 2nd half and picked up an injury along the way

Town have enquired about Tomlin and Gilks at Peter'b if they go down

He never said he would leave unless we get promoted lol. Said he is waiting till the end of the season to discuss his future.

Pre contract maybe? seems likely.

Too light weight. we don't want him at ipswich



05 Apr 2013 11:00:32
Rumour that a current League One club in with a very good shout of promotion, already struggling financially due to overspends by the previous manager are in even more financial perils. Apparently lots of ex players still being paid off and threat of being sued by ex-manager.
Apparently even worse than the fans suspect, club could be in danger of going bust rather than admin.
The club is apparently Southern-based, has only recently come up from League Two and is renowned for spunking money up the wall (this is not the first time they have been in financial perils I hear).

The rotten swines


Well that's obviously Bournemouth isn't it? Why don't you just say it, instead of attempting to be mysterious and making out you've heard some inside info? This 'rumour' reads simply of jealousy, rather than being based on any of these actual facts because of it!

Yes, the club has been poorly run in the past (some might say now too), been in and out of Administration, and close to the brink several times, now all of a sudden because there's some money behind the scenes, everyone quickly forgets. I choose to enjoy the quality of the football on offer, and sympathise with fellow fans of other clubs in a similar situation to where we have been

A Bournemouth fan

Funny you should say this as this is the same club who have just agrred a deal to hold concerts at there ground which would net them around 2 million a year

Load of rubbish!

05 Apr 2013 17:03:52
Er, it isn't Bournemouth (egg on your face). If it was as obvious as you say you would know that.

05 Apr 2013 18:07:02
swindon or bournemouth

05 Apr 2013 19:02:26
swindon should have kept a tight
rein on di canio
now you re paying for it
he will do the same at sunderland
as well



05 Apr 2013 11:14:08
Fulham, Southampton and Wigan are battling to sign 20-year-old Chelsea and Belgian international goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois on loan next season.

The S#n. Therefor it will not happen. {Ed003's Note -

Sun scum

Dont need him got boruc davis and gazzaniga up our sleeves.

What about Schwarzer



05 Apr 2013 10:52:52
Aryn Williams & Joe Jackson both released yesterday by Burnley have both agreed deals to Join Bournemouth. Burnley also linked in yesterday's Lancashire Telegraph with Brentford pair Harlee Dean & Harry Forrester

Is this true or is it just because howe is our manager and two and two was put toughter

No truth in this at all

Joe jackson and aryn williams both are being released. that's a fact but i'm not sure if they will be going to bournemouth, they have not got the quality.



05 Apr 2013 10:33:46
Fulham in: Riether (perm) lindeagard (perm) manolev (perm) emanuelson (maybe loan) frimpong (perm)
Fulham out: schwarzer (retire ) Hugo rodallega Davis stockdale (loan)
Fulham have got like 7 players running out of contact we could lose then in the summer if they don't sign a new contract. Davis has not proved himself this season so maybe to the championship for him maybe with Hugo rodallega or Hugo to a new country.

Frimpong? Arsene won't sell him he's beast! I'm an Arsenal fan so I would hate him to leave


Frimpong is out of contract at the end of the season and arsenal are showing no signs of wanting to give him a new one

06 Apr 2013 19:59:37
Can't see Emmanuelson staying - alright he hasn't had many chances, but has been fairly disappointing. He was gash against the raggeds on Sunday

Schwarzer isn't retiring, he wants to play in 2014 World Cup.

I know schwarzer is not retiring now but Fulham do need a new keeper snice he is 40 in good shape but like jol said his got 2 years in him



05 Apr 2013 09:57:50
West Bromwich Albion will sign in Lewis McGugan from Notts Forest for a free in the summer. it is no secret that West Broms transfer policy is to sign free transfers and loan players with 1 or 2 cash buys.

Mcgugan has always shown great talent but been inconsistent over the years. at 24 they believe he is maturing and turning into the talent he's always promised.

Why do people keep saying notts forest its nottingham forest notts county



05 Apr 2013 09:50:37
Players Southampton have already been linked to:
Thibaut Courtois-70% chance
Jonathon Castro Otto-80%
Hector Moreno-65%
Davide Astori-75%
Jose Manuel Casado-65%
Ludovic Sane-35%
Lucas Biglia-85%
Benat Extebarria-55%
Scott Sinclair-75%
Adrian Lopez-60%
Abdeliz Barrada-75%
Leo Baptistao-70%
Domenico Berardi-60%

As much as I would LOVE to have Courtois. It would only ever happen on loan, and I can see him becoming a chealsea regular in the next year or so, as he's better than any of their other goalkeepers at the moment, in my opinion.

Out of these I'd love, Courtois, Astori, Sane, Biglia, Casado, Benat, Sinclair, Lopez and maybe Barrada (Most to be honest) obviously we won't sign them all but at least we're linked to quality players!

Out of curiosity, what are the percent chances in this post based on? It just seems strange that we appear to ave a greater than 50/50 chance of signing 12 (!) new players.

All Spanish

I could see us getting a few of these i'd love to get the right back Jonny only just 19 and watched him play against ronaldo earlier this season and looked a real prospect and he would give Clyne some good competition

"Out of curiosity, what are the percent chances in this post based on? It just seems strange that we appear to ave a greater than 50/50 chance of signing 12 (!) new players. "

I believe it's what they call a "finger in the air jobby"!

No chance Chelsea will sell Courtois. Astori was heavily linked in January but I just can't see it happening although still think we need a new Centre back, Hooiveld is not good enough Reading game being case and point. We have 3 good enough Centre backs in Forren, Fonte and Yoshida but we need another so we can do away with Hooiveld, Seaborne and Martin.
Sinclair doesn't seem like the sort of player we'd be in for especially with I imagine his high wage packet. However I can say I know very little about the rest of the list and won't claim to so no comment on any of them.

The last poster said we have 3 good enough centre backs have you watched Southampton this year fonte has been inconsistent and cover at best, hoovielt has got better as the seasons gone but still not a prem player and yoshida is getting better and better with each game, we need a marque signing at the back a leader who can pass the ball who that is I don't care aslong as there a step up which from which I've seen of our defending at centre shouldn't be to hard



05 Apr 2013 09:10:41
Norwich City are all set to complete a deal to sign Besiktas midfielder Manuel Fernandes in the very near future.

Yep you aready post this two or three times a week mate same old rumour.
