James mcfadden to aberdeen!

Watch this space!(18)(23)He's already at Motherwell and previously rejected Aberdeen.He's only training at motherwell and the new dons vice chairman has said he will subsidise a stellar signing for the club!!


04 Jul 2012 23:27:36
SWFC really close to confirming the signing of David Norris (PFC) and Steven Jennings (MFC) both undergoing medicals. JC(6)(14)Norris is still awaiting on what is happening at Portsmouth before he decides what to do as he wife is totally against moving from their southcoast home


04 Jul 2012 23:11:41
Blackpool Interested in signing american international Ricardo Clark from frankfurt(9)(12)No thanksThis would fit in with the rumour we are chasing 3 foreign players but as this player is currently on loan to another club who are in the middle of their season I'm afraid this rumour maybe a load of bull Seasider 91


04 Jul 2012 23:18:23
Goalkeeper chris neal has rejected his contract and is to have a trial at port vale this week.(11)(7) 

I find it difficult to believe he would get more money at a cash-strapped clib in a lower divisionVale are being taken over, and will have one of the biggest budgets in the league! Money talks! :) We are expecting Liam Dickinson also! Already signed Vincent, Myrie Williams, and Murphy all released players from the league above! :)Cluband were clearly not cash strapped when we are in the process of recruiting players and have all ready signed three..............


04 Jul 2012 23:08:59
Bradford city complete the signings of Stephen Darby from Liverpool and Gary Thompson from Scunthorpe and want South ends Liam Dickinson. {Ed003's Note - Darby was released by L'pool}(7)(7)Bcfc were rumoured to be interested in dickinson last year. Gotta be something wrong with a player who moves three times a yesr every year.


04 Jul 2012 22:57:09
Jon Harley is to have a trial at Portsmouth during the start of Pre Season(5)(8)Blackburn after ben haim for 250kObviously depends what players are still available by the time the FA allows Pompey to sign players. However, would have thought Harley is a bit older than Appleton would want. However, good enough for div 1 I would think.Please let this be true.


04 Jul 2012 22:45:53
Sky Sports reporting tonight they understand city have signed Stephen Darby , Defender on a on a two year deal. Spent last season with Rochdale and played 39 games(6)(7) 



04 Jul 2012 22:27:46
Mk Dons to sign Adam Smith from Tottenham Hotspurs on a 3 year contract, Alan Smith Ex Newcastle and Manchester United player to sign on 2 year contract and also Danny Shittu Ex QPR to sign on a Free(5)(11)Would love to see Adam Smith back with us but I doubt Spurs are ready to release him for a fee within our reach.He plays for Newcastle not suprsNot he plays for spursNo ADAM SMITH plays for SPURS ALAN Smith was released by NEWCASTLE at the end of the season. but would love to see both at stadium mk next seasonWe're talking Adam not Alan here!No he doesnt, adam smith plays for spurs.
alan smith used to play for newcastle but he is currently a free agent.Full back Adam Smith NOT Alan Smith is at spursDont think so as they just signed OtsemoborAdam smith just signed a two year deal at spurs might go out on loan


04 Jul 2012 22:41:29
French side Rennes set to sign Blackburn player Junior Hoilett for a nominal fee judged by the tribunal.(5)(19)BS i think, he's was training at brockhall today


04 Jul 2012 22:39:18
soooo then any news on Luton Town anyone ? Ed ? been a bit quite for us !(1)(9)


04 Jul 2012 22:36:37
Young and out of contract Manchester United defender Ezekiel Fryers set to sign for championship side Brighton on a free transfer...

Dont believe me if you want but im close friends with his sister so thats my source :)(4)(30)You must be joking, with a host of premiership teams offering first team football and the reason he wants to leave manchester united is because they won't pay his demands. Brighton aren't going to pay more are they?I'm a united fan not brighton so can't see why i would lie. He's had 2 offers from london and two from up north but will be signing for brighton....(original poster)Prem teams wanted kuszkzak and CMS but we still got themBasic wage is one payment, a signing on fee, match appearance money and win bonus payments could get him above his offer from Man Utd. Plus he will be on show, not hidden in the reserves.
Brighton might suit the player well.Have you seen the A M E X .Your source ""his sister" is winding you up, im a direct friend and he is leaving but somewhere closer to home ;-)


04 Jul 2012 22:10:15
Readings young midfielder lawson D'ath to join charlton on a season long loan with a view to permanent from January if it goes well(3)(13)The loan is possible but he is one of Reading's brightest prospects I cant see them letting him go within the next year.We are not going to let one of our brightest prospects go to anyone with a view to perm, loan yes perm no.Load of lies wont be sold loan is highly possible no perm deal thoughIf he's one of readings prospects how come he's not even in us squad list ??


04 Jul 2012 22:27:17
Marcus hahnemann spotted in bristol restaurant with members of Bristol city team
Friends or new teammates?(12)(9)Best mate with liam fontain


04 Jul 2012 22:09:41
Huddersfield town look set to turn their attension to nottingham forest midfielder Jonathan Greening after running out of patience with leeds, the fee is expected to be minimal as forest want rid of the midfielder(11)(10)Grayson's behaving like an idiot; why try and sign players from a club that you know is being taken over? He must know that no financial transactions can go through.
wallyHope Not! Greening is a poor player, who should have retired by nowLol Forest can sell - just cant buy untill takeover is complete


04 Jul 2012 21:47:35
Peterborough have beaten Charlton to the signature of Stevenage midfielder Laurie Wilson(11)(13)Good. He would warm CAFC's bench nicely so P'Bourgh are more than welcome to him.Its such a shame that little clubs like P'Boro are attracting players away from these so called big clubs, lol UTPYour welcome to him

tbh, he'd be on Stevenage's benchWasn't good enough for us years ago, still isn't. CAFCAs I've posted before - Charlton withdrew their offer to Wilson about a week ago (thankfully). It was news of this that led to the rumours of cashflow problems at The Valley (now sorted). Peterborough beat nobody to the signature of this League 1 clogger. Well done to them.Or P'boro can offer first team football which we can't? Not all about club size.Peterborough have got a good player there Wilson was one of Stevenages best playersOffer 1st team football?? when he has to compete against the best right back in the league?? Craig Alcock, you lot are jokers hope you stay in the championship for a while old club and that but I dont see itSignings we have made so far not good fear a long hard season ahead also Robbo goin Doncaster thank god get rid just a yard dog hoofs ball away all time


04 Jul 2012 21:46:31
Sammy Clingan to either MK Dons or Peterborough(4)(15)Jumped Coventry as he didn't wanna play in League 1... So Never gonna go MK Dons. Peterborough will go down if he joins.


04 Jul 2012 21:35:58
According to SSN Doncaster are favourites to sign out of contract midfielder Steven Jennings from Motherwell, with interest from Sheffield Wednesday and Peterbrough!(8)(9)Sheffield wednesday are keen on signing centre half richard keogh from coventry who according to cov city fans is one of there best players....wednesday need to focus higher up the pitch even tho this would be a good signing as he has experience at championship level!

heard it here first.


04 Jul 2012 21:29:18
West Ham sources claiming Bolton are after re-signing defender Abdoulaye Faye(13)(7)Faye too old ! we need someone much younger.Why would West Ham sources know? Faye was released at the end of the season.Now Andrews and Mills have signed I can't see a defensive midfielder/defender being a priority.I saw that too on west ham website


04 Jul 2012 21:21:21
Yeovil Town can confirm that they have signed defender Byron Webster from League Two side Northampton Town . did say earlier there be a signing tonight :)(6)(3)


04 Jul 2012 21:11:37
Several clubs expressing interest in Michail Antonio who was on loan at Sheffield Wednesday with near neighbours Barnsley reportedly making a bid(14)(13)


04 Jul 2012 21:10:43
stevenage to complete signing of former oldham winger filipe morais(4)(4)Whoever he signs for they have got themselves a fantastic player. I saw him every time he played at Oldham last season and sad to see him go.Should be in Championship really.He trained with pne today. Signing to be announced in next few days.Good one. Was training at Springfields (Preston) today ahead of his move.Unlucky Stevenage, He is training with Preston North EndMorais won't move away from the North West, Preston now looks most likely as Bury/Rochdale would be a step down from Oldham.He'll be bench-warming by late autumn, promises so much delivers so little. He's a journeyman capable of the occasional flash of brilliance but ask yourself why he has had so many clubs. look out for him not tracking back and basically throwing the towel in once you go 2-0 down. Great when you are two or three up. Waste of space when you need to dig in. Oh and look out for him arguing with his team mates.


04 Jul 2012 21:10:26
Chris McCann is set to sign for Brighton from Burnley £800.000 heard from good source from within club(6)(10)800k?? not a chance, signed a 3 year deal last season! Burnley would want double the 800kYeah Burnley are going to sell their captain for 800,000.Haven't seen a lot of him but think he will be good if gus wants himTry 2.5-3.5million we dont need to sell and wont do unsell we get that kind of moneyThe club would probably accept a bid for mccann but 800k is a long way offMcCann to Brighton is very much on the cards, not sure about fee, but can't see it being too much over the 800,000 touted earlierBurnley will sell at the right price - £2 million and he will be on his way to join Poyet's bully boys.As he is in final year of his contract and over 24 I think that the club would accept an offer - would think that closer to 1.2m would be more likely to prise him away. All dependent upon whether he is indicating that he will sign contact extension - RVP scenario!Hes injury prone anyway and a shadow of his former self since his injury from our season in the prem ! We could sign a better centre midfielder if we get 1.5-1.6 million for him .Mccann is rubbish any how and tough any way cause he has been strongly linked with norwichIf McCann moves it will only be to the prem and wont happen until Jan, depending on out league standing he will sign a new contract or move on.As much as i hate to say this but id sell mccann for 800k, sadley since his too major knee injurys mccann hasnt been the same player and he will never get back too the level he was at befor the injurys, if he does go i wish him all the best.He was going to swansea for 2.5 million & medical was lined up untill rodgers took over at liverpool. So 800K you're haveing a laugh mate


04 Jul 2012 21:03:47
Middlesbrough want to sign Sheffield Uniteds Stephen Quinn to add much needed creativity. United rejected approaches from Championship clubs last season and may struggle to do the same this time round.(18)(6)Take it Ledesma is still in ArgentinaDeal is in place and verbally agreed, just got to have his medical and sign on the dotted line. Boro seem quite relaxed the deal will go through in good time, but as a fan and a pessimist I wan't it wrapped up sooner rather than later


04 Jul 2012 20:49:35
Lee Williamson to Barnsley on a free transfer just in time for there Spanish training trip.(13)(4)

Saints and Vitesse are yet to agree on a fee on Alexander Buttner a 3 year deal is in place for the player once a fee is agreed, however Southampton and Vitesse seem to be some way off on their valuation of the player, but the player is still begging for a move to Southampton.(17)(7)100% true hopefully we sort out a fee soon


04 Jul 2012 20:25:05
notts county to sign Okuonghae
aftar his exit at colchester just
yesterday(8)(13)Sorry to disappoint you but Magnus made a commitment to U's management the only league 1 team he would sign for is Colchester, It's the Championship or Colchester!!Doubt it SWFC are really interested and he would prefer championship football instead of leauge 1 JCThis is very likely to happen, as he will be first choice with Leacock. SW want him as a squad player.


04 Jul 2012 20:22:22

Stevenage have confirmed on their website that Lawrie Wilson will either move to Charlton or Peterborough, but Posh are the favourites to land him(8)(3)05 Jul 2012 00:52:34
No it says 2 Championship clubs are in for him. You've made up the fact they could be Charlton and P'BourghHe hasn't made it up because they're the only to championship teams that have had buds rejected/acceptedTo right, its not made up because its common knowledge that Posh and Charlton are both in for himAccording to sly they both turned peterborough down


04 Jul 2012 19:58:31
Notts County are looking to sign Chris Dagnall this week, they have also placed a bid for Billy Kee at Burton Albion. Alex Bruce is set to turn down a contract offer from an unknown club to join the Magpies on a 2-year deal. Notts have enquired about taking Rob Hulse on-loan, but have accepted that this may not be a possibility due to high wage demands. Keith Curle, has also been made aware of the availablity of Luke Rodgers after the former Yeovil, Port Vale and Notts man was released from NYRB, due to permit complications, but Curle is yet to decide whether he wants to place a contract offer.(7)(3)Personally a years long loan and regular games to beef and toughen him up would be good for him as i can't see him being good enough for regular 1st team action at Burton yet, he's not a bad player but he's not geat yet either,still too lightwheight.Not good enough for a bottom half L2 side but a year loan a the top of L1 would be good for him? What?

Bristol rovers have had a bid round 100k accepted for chris whelpdale the Gillingham winger is expected to be replacement for carayol(6)(8)I hope this isn't true at all, whelpdale is a brilliant player don't want him to leave gillingham.Where did you get this info from that rovers are signing whelpdale?I doubt it he is worth three times more than thatNo way is he he worth 300 k 150 k maxConsidering we turned down 400k from itfc in jan I very much doubt it.We paid more than that for for him last year! He had a good season, is young, and has 2 years left on his deal.

Yeovil to sign a goalkeeper by the end of the week, thought to be either Chris weale, Marek stech or David James!(7)(6)Gary johnson said the signing was going to be in his early 20s and only stech fits thatWealey injury prone david james to old and expensive marek stech is perfect hes affordable and already a ytfc fan favouriteAs Stech has already signed for YTFC. I'd say it's him!!He hasnt signed yet should be done by tommorow we stand a great chance of going up i thinkStech hasn't already signed as Gary Johnson is going to sign a goalkeeper on Thursday!Please be Stech! I'll be SO happy if it is


04 Jul 2012 18:22:15
Bradley Orr will be Forest's first signing you heard it first from me(6)(20)Why would he? He's in contention to become Blackburn captain...No he won't. Orr is a right back and it is the only defensive position forest are good in


04 Jul 2012 17:51:01
Charlton are set to make a move for Arsenal youngster Conor Henderson.

Henderson, who has featured in cup competitions for the team, has had a long term knee problem and is now believed to be fully fit. He can play out wide on the left on in the middle an Chris Powell see's him as a perfect back-up to Johnnie Jackson due to their very similar playing styles and abilities.

It is believed to be a loan deal with a view to a permanent move in the summer if he impresses.(9)(6)


04 Jul 2012 18:02:39

04 Jul 2012 17:13:42
junior hoillett to newcastle is nailed on and was all part of the leon best deal the other way(13)(28)Hoilett has gone to Borussia Monchengladbach all ready. False info {Ed001's Note - no he hasn't, it fell through, your info is false.}Rubbish. As Hoillett is a free agent neither Newcastle nor Blackburn can influence where he ends up.No it wasn't because hoillet is a free agent and has no ties to the Blackburn .you clearly made this up {Ed003's Note - Compensation needs to be paid for him,no reason why Newcastle couldn't have done a deal to stop it going to a tribunal}Hoillett wants 60k a week newcastle board will not pay that on one player.nor will sunderland he will end up at a club that is willing to pay his wagers.


04 Jul 2012 17:13:42

04 Jul 2012 17:04:22
Port Vale and Oxford United are in talks with Liam Dickinson(8)(3)There both settled around the area with Harper former of reading and smith Swindon. Would love to see hall back but can't see it happeningLD wants to move closer to his family home in Salford. How many miles away is Oxford?Shaun Harrad would be a good buy if we could get him. Purcell could be a shrewd bit of work also. But if we also have Dickenson, Pope, Vincent (says he prefers Central role) we are getting a bit stocked out! Still feel we need another midfielder - Murphy is an unknown, James not sure about... a full back so Lofty can play midfield would be good and at least one keeper!


04 Jul 2012 17:01:40
Oxford are set to sign the following players -

Jonathan Smith - Swindon
James Harper - Free Agent (Former Hull)

And on loan -

Robbie Hall - West Ham(7)(14)Wouldn't mind them signings, three quality playersSmith is a great player, very strong tackler with a good engine and distributes the ball well.... Shame its Oxford or I would wish him luck !


04 Jul 2012 17:00:28

04 Jul 2012 16:50:35
Agent_WHU @Agent_WHU

West Ham United FC have agreed terms with Nathaniel Clyne who became a free agent 1 July.
Only terms agreed with Nathaniel Clyne as he is a free agent. Compensation now the next task.
West Ham United FC have also agreed a deal in principle to sign Milos Krasic from Juventus FC.
Burak Yilmaz is YET to undergo medical. He must meet with Sam Allardyce first.
Player is still in Turkey. West Ham United FC representatives flew out to hold talks with Burak Yilmaz and his Agent
Still a few clauses in his contract that need to be finalised for Kieran Richardson to be a West Ham United FC player.

To clarify for you. Elia and Castaignos were both on course to sign for West Ham United FC. However, a wider range of interest slowed theÖ in place down as the players wished to view all opportunities, similar to Sigurdson who was set to join Swansea but other clubs then
..intervened and swayed his head elsewhere. This happens in football.
..I can confirm that Juventus accepted two offers for Elia. Which one of the clubs are Werder Bremen(8)(11)Total bs, west ham have a cap on they're wages and Elia and Krasic are on far more money at Juve so I doubt theyl take a wage cut to join a manager like AllardyceDoubt a player the caliber of Krasic would fancy a relegation battle with West Ham particularly when clubs like Liverpool and Malaga sniffing round.West Ham dont have a cap on wages yet. Nolan earns £55k a week ffs.Karen Brady said earlier this wk they won't pay stupid wages


04 Jul 2012 16:38:22
Port Vale looking to sign Liam Dickinson on a free transfer then will look to partner him by buying Bury's Shaun Harrad for a small fee. Boss Mickey Adams has been looking to sign a proven League Two strikeforce and Dickinson and Harrad fit the bill.(8)(4)Before you sign Dickinson, look up his record. He will be gone before Christmas. Takes the signing on fee and leaves as soon as he can. Not worth the money IMOHarare won't leave bury he our main striker and won't drop down to leauge 2


04 Jul 2012 16:26:01
Scunthorpe to complete signings of Mike Grella and Christian Ribiero on monday once medicals are passed!(8)(9)


04 Jul 2012 16:25:57
Ross McCormack was seen at Amex today with gus poyet so looks like he is the next brighton signing(10)(25)More rubbish, if anyone signs this week it will be Shorey.Rubbish,how many clubs has he been seen at now.Really hope so!!Could well be. The argus have stated that Gus is close to his third signing and wants another two done quickly.

There may be two or three more on top of that before the season starts.

Happy time to be a gullSecond Spanish player, if true, to be added as sadly Vicente is not coming back. I doubt this will happen.If this is true i'm gonna be sooooooo happyThat would annoy the Palace fans but wouldn't be to bothered if he signed.Isn't he already a Palace player?No he's not a palace player


04 Jul 2012 16:25:41
Confirmed: Freddie Sears has signed a 3-year deal with Colchester United after his release from West Ham.

The third Brighton signing will be announced this evening. He will be the second Spainish player added to the club for next season.(9)(7)Wish this was true, but theres nothing on the official bhafc about this xDThe @OfficialBHAFC twitter suggests nothing about thatI doubt it'll be today if im honest I hope so thoughAlmost certainly will be completed by the end of the week, maybe even two signings


04 Jul 2012 15:52:49

04 Jul 2012 15:31:41
Ex oldham loanee Leon Clarke is linked with the club. But the club and his representatives seem to be far apart in terms of contract discussions(5)(1)

Derby County to sign Nicky Maynard from West Ham. Source: SSN! Gutted if this goes through! (hammers fan)(12)(34)I aint seen anything online am im sure bc would have put a sell onclause if he was to be sold plus he has only been with the team 6mnthsA loan deal I'm guessing?He only signed in January, why would he leave a premiership club?I heard that he turned down a return to Ashton Gate. Was offered on 3 month loan with view to a 1.5mil deal but is now negotiating a move to Derby.I have bot seen thisThere is nothing on ssn about this so please stop making this stuff up!!No.just noIts the same person that said derby were signing baldock at this stage of the season any loans would involve a transfer to west hamYes Nicky come to a team who hav just sold our best player for peanuts. AMBITION!!!

I have it on very good attorney that Charlton are currently in advance talks to sign:

Stephen Gleeson, Kane Ferdinand, Marc Pugh and Karleigh Osborne(7)(15)I think authority is the word you're looking forGleeson just signed new 2 year contract!Only Pugh would get in squad on bench none othersA good attorney must be expensiveSCP will not buy league 1 players. He can and will buy better players."On good attorney" is a genuine phrase, it means just the same as "on good authority"Oh yes, I see - how funny! sorry my english is not good.

and just because Gleeson has signed a new contract doesn't mean MK wouldn't sell him if the money was good."A good attorney must be expensive"

He's a very good attorney so, he must be very expensive.

Tim Ream to go to Peterborough United
for 300,000 plus David Ball(7)(26)Only signed in Jan for £2.5m and has been a first team regular. Been fairly impressive in the Premiership and has a big future ahead of him. Not a chance he'll be going to the footballing backwater of Peterborough, even if they offered ten times as much as £300k.Who's he play for^stop putting us down, we may not play like Barcelona and we may not have the money of Man City, but we're a small club, and we all work for eachother and we've shown you dont need all the money in the world to succeed. Stop thinking we're crap.Dereogatory remarks about Posh could come back and haunt you this season, bigger fish than yourselves have gone away from London Road with their tails between their legs.Yer I the eventual league champions came to London Road on a 10 Match unbeaten run 28 point out of 30 yet they got done 3-1 by the mighty Posh, never the less I doubt this rumour is true, DF isn't going to pay that kind of money for benchwarmers!

Notts County are desperately seeking centre backs for the new season. Alex Bruce and Manny Smith have been linked as has Fitz Hall however it's unlikely Notts will be able to meet his wage demands. Curle has also made an offer to Giles Coke (whom he worked with at Mansfield.) Another former player of his, Max Ehmer is also being lined up for a season long loan.(15)(4)Giles coke is under contract at sheffield wednesday so would command a transfer feeI have no idea about fees. He's not wanted by Dave Jones though, so Notts should be able to afford him.Bruce and Smith are definite possibilities; however I'm a bit unsure about signing Hall. As has been said his wage would be a fairly high one at this level and as for Coke a possible but unlikely as he would want first team football and is unlikely to at Notts at the moment. Also I think another Striker wouldn't do any harm at the moment. We've got Showunmi, Waite, Hughes and that is it. I've heard the likes of Connell and Caleb Folan mentioned but there both not stand out players. I would welcome Beavon as I think we would have a great chance with him playing up front next season if he reproduced the goal scoring form that he had at Wycombe last season. COYP! (Notts Fan)

Bradford now have a unbelievable team. definately a force in league 2 this season!! I've heard Grella is tempted to play infront of 10,000 City fans in comparison to a poor attendance at Scunny!!Can't see Taiwo though I did hear from a good source that Sheff Utd want Hanson... hope so cos he is not upto league football.Gary Thompson signed today initial one year club can activate second year at will. also in Stephen darby 23 yo defender signed today on two year deal (source sky sports site)


04 Jul 2012 14:28:30
any news on youssouf mulumbu of west brom was in talks with several clubs. his he going or staying west brom(6)(3)The story about him in talks with spurs and Newcastle was rubbish! There have been whispers about possible player plus cash offer from Liverpool but i doubt that's true, personally I can only see interest coming from overseas clubs maybe Spain or FranceLoad of rubbish. Spurs and toon don't want him cause they have to pay over the odds as WBA are a fellow prem club. Foreign teams want him but he dosen't want to leave England.Ive also seen those rumours but there not true. ive taken a look at other stories about mulumbu snd he claims he is stopping with albion now there under a new manager


04 Jul 2012 14:25:50
Port Vale close to signing Liam Dickinson, but striker currently listening to offers from another league Two club and one in League one. All within travelling distance from his Salford home.

His agent is a former Port Vale player and hope Liam will settle at one club longer than he has in the past. Has become known for his short stays.(8)(5)


04 Jul 2012 14:24:18

Shrewsbury are set to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Matej Delac on a season long loan.(4)(6)This isn't true, because he has already signed for someone elseNo he hasnt?


04 Jul 2012 14:19:29
Jamie Mccombe is wanted by former club Bristol City. Huddersfield look set to accept an offer in region of 200k for their giant defender.(13)(15)Lol, why would city want him back? League 1 player at bestPlease let this be true, he won't get a game with Town so the sooner he is off the wage bill the better.One of highest played players ever at town in terms of wage to mins played! take him pleasePlease have him back. when on form, absolutely brilliant. but he was very rarely on formI agree that this is complete rubbish but mccombe was a good championship defender in his timeBest CB pairing by far in McCombe and Morrison,
Bristol City fans say since McCombe left that was their demise by not replacing such a comanding CB as McCombe.Commanding centre back. LOL
The worst defender ever.


04 Jul 2012 14:19:11
Michael Owen to join Southampton as he is now a free player.(24)(41)Not this again. I am a saints fan and don't think he is. Stoke maybe. We have enough strike force, Ricky, sharp, Rodriguez, tadanari Lee, All above Owen, our 5th choice should be a youngsterThis will never, ever happen for so many reasons.Going to uae or staying up north no truth in this move along peopleYep, we're gonna stick him in our development squad and pay him in pension contributions. Pathetic and boring post.Dont start with the michael owen rumours again, please.I think he heard that from a horses mouth.Did the horse have very bad breath?Sounds promising



04 Jul 2012 14:16:45
Bristol City look set to give youngster James Wilson his big chance in the coming season. City have lost out on central defenders Andre Amougou (Middlesborough), Richard Keogh (Cardiff), Anthony Gerrard (Nottingham Forest) and now Steven McManus who has decided to return to Scotland. City target Ross McCormack is set to join rivals Cardiff to replace the departing Earnshaw. However, former Bristol Rovers striker Will Hoskins has agreed terms and looks set to join Bristol City in a 250k deal.(8)(17)James Wilson is meant to be going to either Sheffield United, Derby County or Coventry. Gus P still has Hoskins in his first team plans, but Hoskins is home sick and always injured. I doubt he'll move back to Bristol.We need quality at the back and plenty of it else were heading for league 1Mccormack isnt joinng cardiff ,not spoken to anyone ,and according to palace and hudds he's already signed for themWhere? where did you get that?Keogh meeting with city manager and medical this fridayHoskins ... Ridiculous!Thats funny ive head also keogh having medical friday and that gerrard is on stand buy if he fails


04 Jul 2012 14:05:54
28 year old Arron Davies has had his contract at Northampton terminated by mutual consent. Meaning that he may make a return to former club Yeovil where he made 124 apperances and scored 27 goals.(8)(6)He wont rejoin us, we got enough attacking midfielders, and he likely to go exeter
DevonGreenNope hes Exeter-boundDavies said 3 months ago that he wouldnt come back to yeovil.. i know things change, but cant see itWould love this how do you knowThink he's already signed for ExeterGood call hopefully you never know we do need somebody like him. We have thirteen professionals excluding stewart and edgar, and johnson said two more signings by the end of the week, maybe Davies could be a possible signing. Experience is what we didn't have last season, he and williams could offer that though to guide us in the midfield.I doubt it as we have loads of attacking players already!Can we stop signing northampton players Northampton were shocking last year and it looks like we are aiming for league 2Just because a player may be poor at one side doesn't mean he'll be poor at another. Stop being so blinkered!I'm a season ticket holder at Northampton and all the players were useless last year


04 Jul 2012 13:51:27
Watford will secure the loan signing of Steve Leo Beleck in the next 48 hours.(4)(2)His stats don't look too good but he is only 19/20How is heNo players have been discussed as regards to who will move to Watford from Udinese.He scored 5 times in 13 games in the greek top flight can't be that bad!Neuton is the only player that has been discussed in relation to Watford. It is stated on football italia that after udinese's recents signings of Allen and Palenwoski (excuse spelling) it is expected Neuton will be sent on loan to new owned WatfordNeed to sort out players soon as they will need to have time to gel


04 Jul 2012 13:40:44
Sunderland will sign the following :-
Junior Hoilett
Steven Fletcher
Louis Saha
Aiden McGeady
Vurnan Anita
Gabby Agbonlahor
Chris Samba

Michael Turner-Hull
T Bramble -Hull/Ipswich
K Richardson -Reading/West Ham
D Vaughan -Hull/Reading/Fulham
C Wickham -Loaned out
El Mohammadi -West Ham/Middle east
Fraiser Cambell -Fulham(19)(44)Ipswich fan here and I can't see Sunderland signing all these players. I expect you'd face stiff competition for the likes of Agbonlahor, Hoillett, Samba and Saha.
Ipswich do not want Bramble back he is a shadow of his former self and has his own problems. Plus we've got enough players with personal problems at our club.5 attacking players that is a wish list not what will happencSunderland won't get Hoilett or Samba

We will sign
Ricky van Wolfswinkle
Martin Olson
Samba - maby
Hoilett - unlikely

AnitaNever are hull gonna get themHoilett has gone to Borussia Monchengladbach already.I think Saha would be a good signing for the Black Cats. However, being an Ipswich fan I would like to see young Connor Wickham getting regular first team action because I know he has great potential given a run of games in a team.Hoillet hasn't signed yetHi every one is saying hoilett will sign for sunderland or newcastle there is no chance he whants 60k a week and i no sunderland want pay that amount of money for him and newcastle have a lower wage cap than sunderland so them have no chance to.Hoilett deal to borussia m fell through... CATCH UPHA Sunderland won't get Van Wolfswinkel.Sunderland....really?
Hoilett? get real!

Ricky Van Wolfswinkle? how much you think he will go for? hah Sporting just signed him, and probably value him somewhere around 10m-12m.They signed wolfeswinkle for 6mil and sporting are going to have to sell after a bad season plus the fact he's said for the right money he will move. I think a fee between 8-10 mil would be enough to prise him away. And if you think fletcher is valued at 10m I know who I'd go for if I was oneill.


04 Jul 2012 13:36:28

Amari Morgan-Smith (Free Transfer)

bolton have completed the signing of
matt mills from leicester city on a 3 year
having lost out on carlos sanchez,they
are now in talks with paul scharner and
hope to sign him by the weekend.
also in initial talks with craig gordon after
his move to celtic broke down(18)(4)Gordon would be a very good buyAs a Leicester fan I am sorry things did not work out for Mills. He lost form at the time the club changed manager and could not find his way back. However, he will be a good signing for Bolton and we may live to regret his departure.Gordon wouldn't cost a penny, he is a free agent, so is Tom Heaton better keeper than Lonergan!


04 Jul 2012 13:12:19
Leicester reportedly interested in Arsenal defender Squillaci, sdespite interest in him from Turksish sides. Leicester have just sold mills and bamba so need cover.

Unsure if Squillaci suited to championship!(7)(14)Doubt it, not really the type of player Pearson would attempt to sign.Arsenal pay him £50 grand a week can leicester get any where near that?Can we stop just pulling names out of a hat and linking them with Leicester? Whose next - Van Persie is refusing to sign a contract, is he coming?!
He's not the sort of player we need at Leicester anyway, over paid and over hyped. Pearson will come good looking at younger players.With all this youth we need a bit of experiance.

Jody craddock or ben haim will be great additionsWhat do you want though money or to be played


04 Jul 2012 13:10:27
Derby have accepted an offer from Burnley for defender Jason Shackell. This has just reported on BBC Radio Derby. The deal will be publicised in the next 24 hours. UTC(22)(5)Charlton and Cardiff both might come in with a late bid to gazump BurnleyWahahayyy to all you rams that said he wouldn't leave LOL at youYes sadly this is true
Bbc sport are reporting the fee is 1.1m, but this has not been confirmed by anyone at allCharlton will not come in with a late bid as it has already been confirmed by alan nixon that charlton cant offer anywhere near what burnley have offered ! on the other hand cardiff are a different proposition and may yet blow burnley out of the water with a late bid .MIGHT......But he is on his way to Burnley!!Its ridiculous {Ed003's Note - What is? }No they wont!!!! Will be announced tomorrow.Its a done deal, confirmed on clarets mad website.Selling Shackell for very little is ridiculous Ed {Ed003's Note - Right got you,it does seem a small amount}Shackell signed for Burnley last night for an undisclosed fee.No 1 will gazump burnley because shackell has already signed a 4 year deal with us :)


04 Jul 2012 13:09:35
Jason Shackell will have his medical today and expect him to be a burnley player for the start of pre season training on Friday 6th July .(17)(4)Cardiff set to offer £1.2 million to hijack Burnley's bid.Great defender Norwich should never had let him goBurnley have got him, no question about that.It doesnt matter what cardiff offer as the bid has always been accepted. it all depends on wages they offer

Having cleared up their immediate 'cash flow' problems Charlton are set to sign Swansea's Mark Gower who is keen to move back to the South East .

Talks also continue with Lee Cook and Francois Zoko as Chris Powell looks to add depth to his squad(9)(7)Sone aluko also on his way with dany n guessenNo thanks!Charlton still interested in Derby's Shackell - Daily Mirror.I think Charlton will have to do better than this if they are planning to stick around in the Championship.

RedbirdWe don't need depth we have plenty of that we need quality experienced playersThank you redbird! I agree, we need one or 2 big name marquee signings. That'll boost season ticket sales a bit. Then maybe a few fringe bench warmer players!Although i would not rule out Mark Gower going and not rule out him going anywhere in particular.... The statement that he wants to move back to the south east I cannot buy.. He is happy at Swansea and am sure he'd gladly finish he career there if he could, moving being the option, if the likeyhood that Swansea want to move him on, no other reason...


04 Jul 2012 12:50:12
Reading are set to bid £1.5m for Newcastle's Danny Simpson and £2m Sunderland's Kieran Richardson(17)(14)Simpson is available on a free, so why waste good moneyGibson is worth alot more than that. Can't see him going to readingPlus Richardson is worth more than 2million 4mill at least (princey1995)Not true has 1 year left on his contract and Newcastle will want 3 -4 million.Simpson is not available on a free. He's worth more than £1.5m as well.He's still under contract so won't be free. He signed a 3 and a half year deal in 2010. Apparently Guthrie is talking us up to him.

BiscuitGibson what??????Kieran r isnt even a lb new position for him so 3m tops and simpson will attract around 2m only got 12 months mate not a free eitherWhen u say Gibson i take it you mean Simpson!?! his contract is up next summer and he is not siging a new one so Newcastle are pondering whether to let him go for £2m this summer or free next summer! expect Reading to have signed him by end of next week, have it from good source - Watch this space

04 Jul 2012 12:28:35

Time to clear some things up again.

Danny Guthrie - Free Transfer, 3 year contract. Signing took everyone by surprise! Deal able to be kept quiet due to no club negotiations. Was wrapped up very quickly

Pavel Pogrebnyak - Free Transfer. As revealed a while ago, 4 year contract signed. Passed medical on 20th June. Awaiting work permit approval. Club expect it this week.

Jordan Rhodes - As revealed previously. 4.5m fee plus Sean Morrison has been agreed with Huddersfield. Rhodes had discussions with Reading this week, Morrison yet to speak with Huddersfield.

Gylfi Sigurdsson - Reading DID have an offer accepted by Hoffenheim and matched Swansea's terms for the player. Not sure if talks with player ever took place but he is set to join Tottenham now.

Junior Hoilet - Available on a free transfer. Reading have offered an attractive contract and had intial discussions with player. Facing competition from other clubs.

Matthew Connolly - Reading agreed a fee of just under 1M with QPR back in May. Talks with player have not yet taken place. Still not sure what is happening here!

Adrian Mariappa - Talks have stalled. Last discussions were over a deal involving Reading players moving the other way.

Chris Gunter - 2m offer was rejected last month. Reading still interested, no increased offer as yet.

Carlos Sanchez - Officially off after work permit issues and difficulties agreeing personal terms.

Jacob Butterfield - Reading were among the clubs to offer him a contract. Has decided to join Norwich.

Nicky Shorey - Reading have spoken to player, however no contract has been offered.

Many other players are being looked with defenders top priority but that's it in terms of actual bids and offers at the moment.

There has been a lot of enquiries about Simon Church, no actual offers yet. Expect a move to happen.

Jason Roberts has agreed a new two year contract and is set to sign once back in training, Brynjar Gunnarsson is in discussions over coaching role.

More to come soon i'm sure...

THEROYALSINSIDER(12)(32)So basicaly reading are struggling sign players and are linked to everyone .seems about rightIt is widely known that Hoilett is very close to signing for Borussia M√∂nchengladbach, will not be signing for Reading. {Ed001's Note - no, talks broke down over his obscene wage demands.}I would be interested to hear how much Pavel Pogrebnyak is actually getting paid. I hope it isn't much more than the rest of the teamAll that needs to be said on the Jordan Rhodes matter is, Reading haven't and will not have an offer of £4.5m + Morrison ever accepted by Huddersfield for reasons that have been well documented on this site alone.Reading fans were saying for weeks that Mariappa was signing it was a done deal etc..and he hasnt signed..Now Reading fans again for weeks have been saying Rhodes is signing its a done deal etc..and he still hasnt signed. I see a pattern. I am not trying to be nasty or anything its just an opinion. Also I believe Hoilett will end up at a bigger club.

lifelongsaint83^^^^^ thank you for posting Chairman of Reading how kind of you for clearing that upJordan Rhodes isn't going anywhere for 4.5m. Not sure who your source but they are way off the markSounds like quite a reasonable and highly believable listHmm good post but I'm glad discussions aren't ongoing with Shorey, would much rather sign Bertrand.

MoYour not getting rhodes end ofNicky shorey is not good enough for any premier league team and im a west brom fanCan theroyalsinsider pls clear something up, wat do u mean by RHODES had discussions with READING, in person at yor ground for example. ? AGYou are barking up the wrong stick with Rhodes. He hasn't agreed a deal that Hoyle is happy with. Dream on.Thats pretty much everything that I've heard about...hope jordan rhodes happens :)04 Jul 2012 16:44:10
Jacob Butterfield has signed for NorwichIts only a few years since they nearly became the infamous Thames Valley Royals!Most of what you said was okay but i'm a neutral to Huddersfield and Reading but if there was a deal going on I think a few people other than you would know considering the level of interest he has had in himJordan rhodes is very light weight and is not proven. Like with any other young player who scores a few goals there is loads of hype!Reading didn't even place a bid for GylfiYour not getting rhodes end of

Concluding your sentences 'end of' does not mean its fact!

If Rhodes wishes to make the most of a chance or the club wishes to cash in they will.

For the record I don't think reading will try to sign Rhodes due to the hugely over inflated price tag. Neither do I think Huddersfield will keep himReading fans, it's now 20.20 on the 4th July. Have you not signed Jordan Rhodes yet??? Just when isd this this going to happen??? because we could use the money to buy our replacement striker before the start of the season, as you are obviously in pole position being 'SUCH A MASSIVE CLUB' who no doubt all the top clubs will be signing for! We can take or leave your centre half, as their are many others of similar quality out there.Rumour is that hoilett wants a massive signing on fee between £5million and £7million.85 league goals in 3 years and 8 in 8 for U21 is a little bit more than a few goals, also reports in the Reading press that the Royals are cooling their interest because they cant afford him4.5m? try 16m more like and you can have him.It doesn't matter what anybody thinks about Rhodes. You are way off with £4.5 million. Huddersfield want at least £8 million and don't need to sell so really it's up to them so stop coming up with your rubbish rumours. Every day Reading fans are saying he has signed. Get a grip!Can't afford him!?!?!? we have a Millionaire owner who has a Billionaire Father! could afford who ever we wanted! but Reading is (rightly) to sensible and savvy with cash to do that!If Rhodes goes anywhere it will be in January after clubs have had a chance to see if he can cut it at Championship levelJORDAN RHODES IS NOT PROVEN??
Every player no matter who you are needs to have a chance to prove themselves. Grant Holt and Danny Graham weren't proven, they are now.Reading can't afford anybody they wanted ,get realCan't afford to take a risk is more like it and 8 million is a big risk. Give him 6 months in the championship and he'll either be worth 1 million or ten million. As a Reading fan I'd prefer Huddersfield to take that risk on him.

Others might happen for example baines at united, jones to qpr and rhodes to readingSaints will not be getting Adam Johnson as his wages will be too high, Chelsea or any big team for that matter will not be getting Luke Shaw. I think De Jong turned down Newcastle?

lifelongsaint83Campbell can't have a English work permitCampbell has gone to real betis on loan so... this is ribbishHow do you know this, this rumour has been doing the rounds for over two weeks and absolutely nothing is confirmed orvapartbfrom your rumour being hinted at elsewhere. Also Clayton is too much like Norwood so my view is we will be looking for a holding/ball wining midfielder.Morison is not leaving he will stay for at least another seasonLiverpool to bid for ben arfaWe liverpool fans want players to play for the shirt not for the money. siggurdsson no thanksLet Rhodes stay and let's see what he does next year. My feeling is that the step up for both club and player (if he stays at Huddersfield) will be too much.I think teams would be stupid to sign Rhodes. wait until he has had at least half a season in the championship then make a decisionAgain another norwich player linked to aston villa predictable just because our old manager is there, ever since he left we have aston villa linked to every norwich rumour its gettin really old nowWe're not "desperate for cash", we're rich.Johnson to Saints. I don't see that happeningWest ham after matt jarvis for 4 million, never gonna happenSigurdsson playing for money? Lol don't get upset Liverpool fans because he chose Tottenham over you. Liverpool have a weird need to play expensive flops so he wouldn't get any game time there. He went to Tottenham to play football. I'm glad he chose Tottenham as you Liverpool fans have zero respect for him.

Shaun Cooper hasn't been turning up to pre-season training for AFC Bournemouth sparking rumours that he has decided not to sign a new contract as his expired on the 30th June(7)(0)To be honest im glad hes going hes not worth the hasell hes gone backwards as a playerBit of a fringe player so don;t think afcb would miss him that much, especially if they are to sign a central defender this week, and get bartley or robinson back to bournemouth as good mid-fieldersShame cooper seems to have left in this way, guess he knows he won't get much game time next year and really is surplus to requirements. Seems to spoil his career with all the injuries.Afcb havent even returned to training yet^^ haven't returned to training? Obviously you're not a real fan otherwise you'd know AFCB went back to training on Monday. Cooper was offered a 1 year deal but he wanted 2, Groves was unwilling to budge so cooper has decided to leave. He has said on the vital site that he didn't want to leave but he did want a 2 year deal. Likely to sign with former AFCB manager, Sean O'Driscoll, at Creepy CrawleyPre-season fitness assessment, those that don't pass or volunteer will start pre-seaon training now! The players deemed fit can have till next wednesday off but will expect to start on this date. cooper is out of contract with afcb since 30th june, so is under no obligation to attend the assessment. Knowing his injury prone career it would have been beneficial to have proved his fitness, then it would not be finding another club difficult, because he remains unknown quanity regarding his fitness. New club needs to give good medical prior to contract. Afcb were cautious about offering more then 1 year due to his history, but cooper wants 2 year and will need to find it else where. Bournemouth have been very loyal to him especially during the long absence from playing during his 7 years at club.^ They have but not all he playersHe said today in the echo he is no longer a afcb player

Boro poised to sign Andre Amougou and Martin Cranie with former Arsenal youth player Christian Burgess and former player stuart Parnaby both having already signed a 2 year deal each. Hoyte and McMahon both left and McManus set to go, it will be a new look Middlesbrough defence next season(4)(1)Now to get rid of mcdonald and thomson off the wage bill could get better quality on cheaper wages than them 2It won't,Steele in goal with Rhys williams and seb Hines in central defence with joe Bennett left back and a choice of 3 right backs so will be very similar to last season,bikey will be cover if deal goes through same as craine and burgess won't be any where near first 11 this new season.a new striker for BORO is a cert so exspect a lot of transfer gossip on that front.And you know the team how? i think it will be Amougou and hines, with bennet left and cranie right, williams in m/f.unless you are of course tony mowbray and your picking the team!!Nope,Rhys is a centre back slash defensive mid but won't be picked ahead of bailey,than you have haroun,leadbitter,arca.zemmama plus new midfielders yet to be signed.Rhys is guaranteed a centre back spot,craine hasn't signed and bikey if he signs won't be a starter as mogga has stated he'd be signed to provide competition.steele in goal Bennett Williams Hines and a new right back will be guaranteed to start first game.Rhys Williams won't get picked ahead of bailey for the defensive midfield role,bailey,leadbittet and haroun all first choice ahead of Rhys who is used in midfield when injuries hit.I highly doubt Williams plays CM regularly. With his pelvic issues he doesn't have the fitness to play anywhere other than CB regularly.

Lets put this Burak Yilmaz to West Ham
rumour to bed.

Lazio can't agree upfront payment for Yilmaz so Trabzonspor start negotiations with
Fulham. This was dated 29/06/12 and
negotiations still ongoing. West ham
were never involved. Confirm this and
check Lazio and Tranzonspors web site(5)(9)West Ham have never been on the cards, links just started because their fans said it was worth a punt. Still reckon he will go to Lazio, they are just playing hardball as they don't want to pay the full fee in one go, but expect they will when/if Fulham agree terms with Yilmaz


04 Jul 2012 11:40:31
Robert Snodgrass to move from Leeds to Norwich for around the 4 million mark in the deal from Adam Drury going to Leeds earlier last month.(9)(24)Cant see this happening post Hughton's comments of the transfer budget ("its not as big as people have been quoting"). doubt we have 4mill to spend on a single player unless we sell first.
otbc#12Rubbish. Drury was released by Norwich as his contract was to expire. Happened before July 1st as Norwich allowed him to wrap it up early. So a free transfer wont have any bearing on the deal to sign Snodgrass from Leeds.

Not saying Snodgrass to Norwich isnt a possibility but i do think its unlikely now as he was a target for Lambert, change of manager often leads to a change in targets. Lambert may still want him so a move to Villa is more likely id say.Where did you hear that from? I never heard Hooton say he had no cash!!
O T B C........That is most definitely the funniest thing I've seen in months.....!!Absolute bs,drury was a free agent ,and snodgrass is signing new contract at leedsHaven't found that quote anywhere. I found the quote saying any more signings before monday isn't likely, due to he wants to see what the team has to offer in practice first.Is that the same Adam drury that was out of contract?
Why would a free agent have any bearing on snodgrassHughton is just doing what Lambert did and playing things down. We know what Lambert spent last year and we know we have more than that to spend this year. There is good money to spend.

This rumour is clearly BS though. We might well be in for Snoddy, we've been linked with him for ages, but there was no deal to take Drury to Leeds. He was out of contract.Don't take too much notice about how much/little money clubs etc say they have to spend as it depends on if they are looking to buy or sell. In some deals they will plead poverty and some will state great riches. Clubs keep their actual budgets very secret so any figures you see stated on here are complete guesses.He will sign for Norwich villa or stoke
This summer!!No he won't, he'll stay at leeds ,norwich still trying to be leeds ,the love for us must be so deep,lol


04 Jul 2012 11:40:23
Andy gray is to decline bradford, as he wants to play in higher league, mainly the money I think, but there is unknown striker signing this week, that has played in higher leagues, also, Nunez signing could be possible as he wants to stay in the Yorkshire region.(3)(6)Paddy kenny to come to Bradford on season long loan Hanson in part exchangeBraadford City Football Club have played down on Nunez signing as they have said there have not spoken to the player or agent and will not be persuing him to come to Bradford City Source TwitterNunez wont be coming to bradford as

Martin O'neil looks certain to bring in an excperienced midfielder with Michael Ballack top of his list.

04 Jul 2012 11:17:06
Plymouth Argyle sign goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin from watford on a free transfer(8)(2)Well done something rightWatford/Crawley/Yeovil
what was he like when he played for you ....Green Army 12He is not great. However may do well at L2 levelIm a watford fan btw, to tell you the truth he never got a true chance at watford as when he finally got his chance in the team his howler lost us the game. Other than his extreme atempt at time wasting when we were losing ( insisting to drop every ball out of his hands and walk a bit then hoof it), he seemed like he had potential to be a decent goalkeeperI would say he will do well at that levelOnly played a couple of first team games for Watford, did ok but lacked experience at Championship level, a big commanding type, will do ok at a slightly lower level. Good luckDidn't get much of a chance, saw him play once or twice and was pretty poor tbh. Good luck though. Big team so hope Plymouth do well this seasonHe didn't play much for Watford, but in the few games he did, he was OK, I would say a pretty good cover for your 1st choiceNot the best for watford but still alright, so I think plymouth have done pretty well to sign him considering you were in the relegation mix for a large chunk of last year. So yeah, very nice signing! :)Excellent keeper in league 1 - very good signing for the other green army down there, good luck Huish Park Greens!

Huddersfield closing in on signing Leeds United's Adam Clayton. JE(17)(18)Part of the deal bringing rhodes to elland roadHuddersfield are desperate for cash to fund their Championship season. Grayson has been given the ultimate objective of maintaining Championship status. It is common knowledge at the Galpharm that MaCormack and cash has been tabled for RhodesCommon knowledge that cash and RM for Rhodes? News to me pal and every other town supporter. Rhodes to Leeds would happen after Steven Gerrard went to Man UnitedHow are Huddersfield "desperate for cash" when our owner sold his company (Card Factory) for no less than £350 million, and he supports the club, so will be pouring the cash inHuddersfield desperate for cash, is that a joke, as much as it would be nice Rhodes won't be coming to Leeds, Clayton to hudds likely, he isn't that good anyway and won't get us up.Huddersfield are in no way desperate for cash! They are loaded, no need to sell anyone.Swap rhodes for snodgrass and cash maybeSwap rhodes for snodgrass +cash, sounds good ,you give us rhodes and 5 mill,should just about cover it

Juanfran Moreno is being linked with Southampton. Only a link not saying we will sign him. Fulham and 5 La Liga clubs also interested. He could look to the EPL for new start as not getting any first team time at real Madrid. People will start moaning that Southampton linked with another player but this is a rumour site and is being reported else where. Just check the Southampton news now website!(2)(4)I wish they'd get on with it so far we're going to sign about 25 players so we are going to have to get rid of a few. COYRS

i hear fleetwood looking at chesterfield striker scott boden on a season long loan. this is from a very reliable source(4)(4)No chance dosent make any sence why loan out one of our player to a league challengerI don't think so, why give him a new 1 year contract then loan him to opposition, your source is not reliableOnly reason would be if Sheridan is looking to free up a squad place for someone else he wants in and it would be good experience for Scotty.Well tbh cfc have to many strikers and boden isnt the best so why nt ship him on loan. hes not gunna be a starter anyway. bowery and richards will start so to me it makes perfect sense.....I agree mate boden isnt a starter for town lets loan him you neva know it could make him a better playerIf it was true, it would only be short term loan, not full season

Paul Taylor is the only listed player not to get a decent squad number (26 I think) so he looks most likely to go. Pity as he was one of our best players last season.(6)(2)All 3 players have kept last years numbers. It's not a case of taylor most likely to go.

Doncaster Rovers to sign striker Lee Hughes on a one year deal, with the option of a further year depending on goal scored. Rovers also to allow james coppinger to leave for ipswich on a free deal to include season long loan of Jimmy bullard.(3)(19)The James Coppinger deal is not happening. Plus we're not loaning out Jimmy because he needs to work hard and show us again this season the form he showed when he was on loan.James coppinger already confirmed hes staying at the rovers!That rubbish I'd rather have copping we stay at rovers and anyway he's still under contract do a fee would have to be agreed. Lee Hughes can stay where he is font want him at roversNo way are Donny signing Lee Hughes, too old, weve already signed pensioner in Robbie Blake!

Defoe to stoke in a deal expected around the 8 mill mark(14)(11)I really hope this is true, but i very much doubt it will be, need tottenham to spend some money this year and bring in some new strikers, so we can get himDefoe and huddlestone 15 millionDefoe and huddlestone, now that would be a dream come true! always loved those two players. again though, wont happen :(As posted before I get a lot of info from Spurs and Defoe has been on the brink of joining Stoke for a long time. The sacking of Harry has put a question mark over this but chances are that AVB will let him go. Defoe was keen to join in Jan but Spurs failing to land Remy scuppered the deal.Surely AVB will want at look at them first hand before he makes any decisions. Not saying it won't happen, just saying it's likely not to be any time soon.Defoe and huddlestone for £15m would be an absolute bargain. At least Stoke are moving up in the world regarding their players; buying from Spurs not Sunderland anymore.

Plus JET may seem lazy, but he is amazingly talented, skilled and has great potential.It was the Genoa youth team though.Korouma played for Genoa's second team and was released due to their financial problems. he never played for the first team

Huddersfield possible signing in new few weeks:

Leeds : Adam Clayton 1.2 mil
Peterborough : Grant Mccann Free
Everton : Victor Anchiebe 1.7 mil
Bristol City : John Stead 500k
Reading : Morrison 1mil

Huddersfield to let go 2or3 of these :

Anthony Kay : Scunthorpe 300k
Jamie Mccombe : Port vale 250k
Alan Lee : Fleetwood Free
Oscar gobern : Birmingham 450k
Anton Robinson : Bornemouth 400k
Peter Clarke : Birmingham 600k
Jimmy Spencer : Cheltham Loan(14)(21)Grant McCann still has 1 year left on his contract, so would not be free!Grant Mccann will cost you £500K+ as got 2 years on contract.Grant McCann Free your having a laughYou may well get Grant McCann, but he won't be free, still got a year left on his contract. I think he is trying to convince Fergie Jr that he warrants a new contract at Posh, as his family is very settled in the area.Grant McCann is not free as he is still under contract, so a fee must be agreed with posh if he is to leave. He has just been transfer listed that's all.No rhodes no morrisonUtter cods. I would rather have Alfie in our team than Rhodes. 40 goals in league one, lets see what he can do in the Championship. Good young player but there is a lot of hype around him and his valuation is way to high!Town won't sell peter clarke and won't sign anichebe or stead. why does the stead rumour come up every transfer window when we've never actually being intrested in signing him back?Grant is up for sale not on a free.How foolish you are, im telling you for certain rhodes is a better player than le will see.Utter tosh

Grant McCann won't be free he still has a year left of his contract.............Grant McCann free?
You'll be lucky!! still got a year left on his contract, although he is on the transfer list so there will be a fee to pay.Stead is staying at city!!What a load of old tosh! Peter Clarke will not leave Huddersfield, Stead will NOT be coming back as we already have better than him, similar with AnichibeTime and time again we all have to tell you this:


Maybe that will now sink in..Haha "No Rhodes No Morrison". You can keep Him then. This Rhodes signing for Reading thing was set to be announced 3 weeks ago according to Reading fansAs a Port Vale fan I would love to have both McCombes, but honestly - we couldn't afford his wages and certainly not his transfer fee at £250K. We have signed three free transfers and are looking at another couple. We need a keeper (one teenager on the books) and a regular goalscorer. So :-( he ain't coming to Burslem!Never heard anything about three weeks ago. Rhodes is unlikely to move anywhere, but this is football. These sites wouldn't exist if it was predictable


04 Jul 2012 05:40:04
Huddersfield will sign adam clayton from leeds for a fee of around 800k - 1m before end of the week could happen by end of today? Good source(23)(18)

southampton will secure the services of alexander buckner on wendesday morning(16)(15)Is that next WednesdayI thought he was going to Liverpool? And isn't he a bit more pricey that £8 mill? Not saying wont happen just don't expect it will, highly rate him tho.I take a lot of the rumours on here with a pinch of salt but if you cant even spell the players name correctly then the rumour has zero creditability. buttner and its a bit late now. Wrong as usualWell its 20 past 1 now?Or evningWell its now wednesday afternoon ... why do you post these things and make us other saints fans look like idiots !It's afternoon now so where's the news?Were getting him for 3 mill exp liverpool interest was last year it was bremen fulham and qpr however he chose saints as he likedd the ambition of the clubIts Thursday morning still no news!

Southampton are set to shock English Football by announcing the signing of Adam Johnson from Manchester City for £8million. The signing will be announced early next week.(27)(54)I can't see it but it could be what sky's Graeme bailey was on aboutNever going to happen but god I wish it was true, the boy is quite frankly brilliantPeople dont realise that the club is backed by BILLIONAIRES. The message is we are in the Premier League to compete - there will be big names arriving so get used to itIs he not on around £70k per week @ city? How the hell would Southampton match that? I am a Saints fan, would love to see it but lets get real people!!This will shock adam most of all i suspect - he has no interest in Southampton at all!Can't see this happening, unless Johnson is prepared to take a wage cut to move in line with Saints wage structureHave we given in to his wage demands?I hope this happens but can't see it! I'm a saints fan but come on his wages alone would be more than lambert and lallana pit together for that reason this won't happen!Doubt this VERY much as his wages will be way too high.

lifelongsaint83Now ur having a laugh but would be a great signingWhy would it be a shock. Average player joins average teamUmm, Riiiiiiight.If adam johnson was being sold by city for 8m am sure the saints wouldnt be the team that gets him.Where did you hear this? It seems fairly unlikely as clubs like Liverpool are likely to be interested if he was available.Would be nice but can't see us paying his wages yet. He may have clauses though. Pay rises for getting into Europe within 3 seasons, goals, assists. Guess will just have to wait and see. Need a CB desperateAmazing if it happens. Can't see it though.Although as a Saints fan i'd love this to happen, i don't think we'd be able to afford his wages :-(No, its Jack Rodwell. He was at the training ground a few days ago.Liverpool have been told to pay 15mill, so to sign him for 8mill is near on impossible"This will shock adam most of all i suspect - he has no interest in Southampton at all!"............And you know this how? Do you know him personally? Are you him?...I dont believe this will happen because of wages, but I find your comment ridiculous.

lifelongsaint83Can you elaboate on the Sky comment...Im a pompey fan and this wont happen blue armyWhat did he say?The club isnt back by billionaires as the deal nearly fell threw to buy reading because the fa wasnt sure the owner had the money to run it he is part share holder of a billion dollar company with 20% stake hes worth about 400m its reported but most ofthat is tied upSaints fan here. We are owned by a family with a multiple billion pound business. However this is causing a lot of confusion amongst some of our fans it seems. They can have all the money in the world but it is all relative to what they are willing to spend on the club. We are not their business, we are one section of a huge multinational company. Yes they have talked of investment but some people seem to take this that we will chuck money about like city and Chelsea. We won't. This is about setting up an infrastructure and culture in the club that will safeguard us from the turmoil of a few years back and make us as competitive as possible in the top flight by slowly building.
Johnson would be a great signing but even of he halved his wages ( which obviously he won't) this would be above and beyond the cap set. So it won't happen.
We will make signings but not this one. Calm down and try and get real.This rumour has actually been around for a while. I had ignored it at first, but this may have some substance to it now. As a Saints ST holder, I'm not going to hold my breath as almost all rumours here are just that. But there is at least some evidence to suggest that this could be the "Big One" that the club have been hinting at for a while now. It is also rumoured that a compromise over wages might be reached involving a lump sum payment up front.People are saying that we wouldnt be able to afford his wages, are they forgetting that are owners are billionaires? yeah, we probably wont sign johnson but saints are going to suprise a lot of people this season and expect some big names! edd, you got any news on the michu signing? {Ed001's Note - I don't sorry, I don't even know where the rumours originated from to try and trace some more news on it.}As a Saints fan it would be great if this was to happen but I'm a bit skeptical. I also imagine Adkins wouldn't want to upset the wage balance between players in the squadA loan would be more realistic, it would give him Prem experience, and City would hope that he'd help take points off their rivals. He's more likely to join us than a top team (which City might regard Liverpool as at a push) as they wouldn't want to boost a potential title/champions league rival.Pretty please. I doubt it but IMHO he graces any Premiership side.A lot of people are talking about the clubs (Southampton) owners money and the situation they are in. Saint Marcus Lieberr was the 5th riches football club owner in Britian and he ran and owned The Lieberr Group, a £7.6 billion swiss manufacturing company, so he was definatly good for it.
He laid out a six year plan to get Saints into the Europa league. This would be, firstly, through Premier League position but to make it happen through a cup win would also constitute a success.
When he passed away (God rest him) his family stated that the clubs finances will not be affected by Mr Lieberrs passing. They also stated that they will see his plans for the club carried on in his name, pushing to succeed.
Getting promoted last year has put Saints a year ahead of plan. They have already blown their record spend wide open with Jay Rod.
Saint Marcus had said that when they make the Prem they will make their push. They wont have the funds to do what City and Chelsea did and push for the title from day one but they are more realistic and pushing for Europe while building for the future.
Expect big signings now but the most work will be done in January.

Paul coutts going to wolves for a fee around 800k with griffiths the striker coming the other way. Also Craig Morgan is off to Peterborough for a undisclosed fee. And major is off to Middlesbrough.(8)(19)Major who?Morgan?!? Not a chance. 2 reasons, old and sh.Morgan is below the standard of other defenders, but would be a good buy as a backup

I can't see DF having Morgan as a major target, more a last resortPlease not the donkey Morgan, surely Fergie wouldn't make the mistake of having him again...Is Morgan going to direct cars on match day at London Road then?Paul coutts £800k.......PNE payed less than £500k (undisclosed fee)...he cant wait to get out of preston so would jump for £80 if asked. Dream on....the guy is an OK League 1 player at best.Fergie rates Morgan for some reason so very possible


04 Jul 2012 00:32:49
rumours on wearsid is that hull want turner and bramble.(15)(6)I hope so....Bramble has more poor games than good and Turner is far too slow. Fast strikers and wingers leave him for dead.Can see this happenning, unfortunately Turner is far too slow for the prem. The QE 2 turns quicker. And everyone knows Titus was a very lucky boy not to be playing for Lags 11. Championship players at best. But if they can get u back to the prem good luck. u should prepare yourselves fror some dire football,Bruce has no tacticts.Thats what got him sacked.Being a fat Geordie btard was irrellevant!


04 Jul 2012 00:28:01
bondz ngala could be on way to stevanage yeovil would be entitled a fee unless they release him(8)(2)There's no way Stevenage could afford him. He would command a fee in the region of £6-8million. That's the price you have to pay for a player of his quality, touch, agility and pace.We Cannot Let Beastly Bondz Go ..No Way Jose ..Hes a Tank ! :(Why would they release him, if they could get money for him.If we could get a fee for him leaving wow! Hats of to Sir Gary Johnson. The worlds gone mad hahaWe wouldnt release him for two reasons:
1) We need the money
2) He would have been used in the first team and so we wouldnt pay for a first team player to have their contract cancelled in order for them to join someone else...
Non the less, the rumour is true it was announced in a presentation at Stevenage this weekIf he goes it would be the best bit of business we ever did, he is useless but still a meatheadCoz he is so clumsy there not gonna get any significant fee so probz will go cheap i hope he doesHes gone now on a free we should have
Got a bit of money thoughHe hasn't gone on a free as he has a year left on his contract do we will get some money for him!We will get cash for him. Not alot though. I believe it's somewhere in the region of £10-20K.Thats amazing 20k for that terrible player stevenage got ripped off, good business Sir GJ

Robert earnshaw is set to look around bramall lane this week!

Stoke City to confirm the signing of Michael Owen by the end of the week on a 2 year pay as you play deal. Also in discussions with Blackburn over a 4 million pound up-front plus incentives deal for Martain Olsson.(23)(11)Not too bothered about Michael Owen joining, Stoke have already got a fair few forwards. Martin Olsson would be a great signing though. Hopefully they can create the most threatening looking defences in the league.


03 Jul 2012 23:29:49
Paul Parry and Chris Weale in talks at Shrewsbury(11)(6)Good shout mate turner said 2 players with championship experienceImpressed with this; hope they sign!

Portsmouth boss Michael Appleton looking to a number of youngsters from the premier league to add to his squad on loan, those will be;
Mehdi Abeid - Newcastle
George Thorne - WBA
Luke Daniels - WBA
Ryan Williams - Fulham
Ryan Fredericks - Tottenham(14)(15)Ryan Williams only just sign for fulham so they on't buy him but a loan is possibleFootball League has stated today they will not allow Portsmouth to sign any players which includes free transfers and loans. So Pompey fans can stop posting on here about signing this player and that player.The cva is agreed so once the high earners get sold then it will happenAm liking the idea of a return for our youngster Williams."The cva is agreed so once the high earners get sold then it will happen".....The CVA has been agreed in principle, but their are conditions which include high earners leaving..there are no guarantees this will happen.Ultimately the high esrners will leave as, by staying the would liquidate the club and not get their money antway. Compromise agreements are the answer and many players such as Norriss, Varney,Mokeona, etc have clubs ready to sign them. Give it another couple of weeks and most will have left.I'm sure all the charities and struggling business's who Pompey ripped off will be so happy about this news.
