Ian Harte could make a shock return to former club Leeds after he rejected a new contract at Reading after a training ground bust up with Brian Mcdermott and assistant Nigel Gibbs. The news has alerted Neil Warnock who is looking for a new left back after their former first choice Paul Robinson was recently released because of a number of poor performances(3)(44)This has false press written all over it. Whats your source?!The season has finished and they are no longer on the training ground. i know some leeds fans are desperate to see some good players coming in but making up stupid rumours will not help. Go back to the drawing board.I really can't see this at all. Ian Harte has worked hard over the past three years and has finally got a chance to show what he can do in the premiership.

Reading have supposedly offered him a new contract, and i'm sure Harte wouldn't waste such a good opportunity.

I'm a Leeds fan, and really hope to see him have a good go in the premiership.Nice try LOLeeds.

There has been no bust up. The team celebrated the trophy presentation then flew straight to Spain for a knees up. They got back yesterday and Ian has a new contract on the table.

It's kids making up stories!

Nathaniel Clyne,
Adrian Mariappa,
Jacob Butterfield,
Peter Whittingham,
Bjorn Sigurdarsson,
Dame N'Doye and
Jamie O'Hara(11)(30)Sky Sports says newcastle closing in on butterfieldDeluded.Reading will be signing none of those listed if their takeover deal doesn't go through will be back to the cautious approach with a minimal transfer budget as has been the Reading wayThe takeover will be confirmed by Wednesday at the latest. SSN reporting Butterfield to Newcastle but Reading have already agreed a contract, now just a tribunal has to happen.Please take Jamie O'Hara off our hands, he's lazy and useless and if we can get back the £3.5m we paid for him I'd bite any teams hand off.

Man City want Gareth Bale for £40M and players deal. Don't see it going ahead but if it does £35M plus Adam Johnson and Emmanuel Adebayor would be a good deal for Spurs!!(5)(30)Gareth b
ale is worth no more than25/ 30 to any clubThats why no club will get him then if clubs are going to offer the pathetic 25-30 mill you reckon {Ed025's Note - very good player...but worth £30m? ..not on your nelly,,And Andy Carroll is worth how much {Ed025's Note - 10


04 May 2012 19:20:14
Paul groves will be next Bournemouth manager for a term of 2 and half years he will be assisted by Steve jones or Shaun brooks who ever will get the assistant job will go to the youth team set up(2)(1)


04 May 2012 19:48:03
Ipswich to sign adam clayton(5)(24)Adam Clayton the bass player of U2 ?The reason clayton didnt sign new deal is beacuse he wants to play for a club with more money and a chance of the premier league. given their seasons and the signings and sales that these two clubs have made already this window, i would say that leeds appear to be willing to show more ambition this window than ipswich therefore u will not buy him


04 May 2012 19:17:12
Ipswich town player Jamie peters will join afc Bournemouth next week for a trail period with the view of contract in summer he was on loan under former manager lee bradbury(4)(4)Bournemouth have not got a new manager yet so why would they be looking to sign players? He also flopped during his loan so can't see them wanting him back


04 May 2012 19:10:43
breaking news...what ever happens to rangers reguardless now means all there players contracts are void .this meaning every rangers player can leave on a free sparking a mass scramble from lower end premship clubs for there players ..rangers players agents are banging on the doors of the likes of stoke .wigan..wba .everton ect..(9)(4)Would that be the unibond premierCant see any premiership team wanting the tripe that you have at rangers, league 1 standard players playing in a league 2 standard league.Take a look at your top 2 division ,how many palyers have came from the spl ! Can't be that bad a standard !!TBH I reckon those players could cope in the lower echelons on the premier league.


04 May 2012 19:01:19
Dempsey To Liverpool 5m+Joe Cole
Brad Jones Blackburn 500K If Robbo Leavs(13)(19)Dempsey is worth more than 5mill and Joe Cole.I'm american - and he's not worth much more. At his age I'd take 7 mil and cole, especially after cole's fairly promising season in france and fulham's track record of being a comfortable retirement home for aging talents.

any bristol city rumours,(2)(19)


04 May 2012 18:30:16
Newcastle are set to sign Barnsley midfielder Jacob Butterfield on a free transfer aswell as having already snapped up Romain Amalfitano from French 2nd division side Reims.

Erik Pieters, who is PSV and Holland's first choice left back could be signed for around £5m, Montpellier winger Younes Belhanda could be a big money signing for around £10m, but this is only if Newcastle manage to get into the Champions League.

If Danny Guthrie turns down the new contract offer and leaves on a free, then Bolton's Mark Davies could be an option for free, while Peter Lovenkrands, Steve Harper and Alan Smith will leave when their contracts expire.

Xisco, Nile Ranger and possibly Dan Gosling will be looked to be moved on aswell as goalkeeper Fraser Forster closing in on a move to Celtic.

FC Twente centre back Douglas could be signed on another free transfer, which looks a good policy from Newcastle, who only sign players under the age of 26 and who have a good resale value.

If Danny Simpson does leave, which is only a minor possibility at the moment, Mathieu Debuchy of Lille could be signed up as his replacement.

Busy summer on Tyneside to be expected, but only in a good way. No big players will leave unless they bid over the odds, which lets be honest - applies to all teams unless your Manchester City.(10)(17)What about Jan Vertonghen and Jerson CabralSorry but you want be getting jacob butterfield for free hes under 24 so expect to pay at least 1.5 million for him.Ba will go.Yeah, there will be a fee as he's under 24 but it will be classed as a free.

On Jan Vertonghen, he has indicated he wants a move to a London club, so expect him at either Arsenal or Tottenham and as for Jerson Cabral - I've heard nothing about him moving here.

Demba Ba is a possibility, but from what I've heard, he wants to sign a new deal as he has fallen in love with the city and European football will almost guarantee that he won't move, as well as his close friend Papiss Cisse.If montpellier make the champion's league as they're threatening to, they have no reason to sell belhanda - especially not for a paltry 10 mil.

MK Dons leading the race to sign John Pantsill after his release from Leicester(3)(13)


04 May 2012 18:36:57
Don't you just love it when a NEW team comes up from the championship, they are going to buy every one in sight.........Yes i'm talking about SOUTHAMPTON.

Yes they have done Fantastic to get back in the Premiership, but come on be REALISTIC please.

All i'm saying is DON'T run before you can walk, as everyone knows - the Premiership is a very hard league.(10)(14)Agreed, as proved by Reading, Blackpool, Norwich and now Swansea, you are better off keeping the majority of your promotion squad and add maybe 3 new signings to add some experience.

Any more changes than that and you lose the harmony and work ethic that got you there, and most importantly the team spirit.

Saints fans are getting far too carried away. They should expect maybe £7m spent on the side at most. Same for Reading, who are wisely looking at two or three very good free transfers, and then one or two costly signings.

Remember, it's not about how much they cost!

West Ham could have done with knowing that as well...If your so clued up you would know that saints do thier business behind closed doors, Plus saints would not sign anyone that don't fit in and they definitely wouldn't pay over the odds for a player, So it's not likely that they are going to sign everybody in their sightsSaints will make a maximum of 4 signings and 1 or 2 loans... The Main Stream media assume that they have suddenly come into money that they will be looking to waste. They have always been backed financially but have never got carried away... Watch out for Tadanari Lee (Chung).. he will be one to watch next year... COYRsSaints don't mutli buy that's why they've had back to back promotionsAgreed..Some of the posters on this site listing all these unrealistic players we are going to buy are clearly not real Saints fans...some Pompey no doubt.As will young would say "it feels like jealousy" .......... We are southampton we do what we want! {Ed025's Note - tut tut..Saints to sign 3-4 players max but will be linked with loads - not especially by Saints fans. Anyway i thought this was a rumours site so rumours about Saints targets are bound to happen - nobodys saying they will sign all of them - dont read it if you dont like it.I'm a Saints fan. I don't believe half the rumours posted about who Saints are buying are from fans. We'll bring in 4 quality players this window, as we did before this season. All we will do is create harder competition for places. Adkins is no mug


04 May 2012 18:15:57
Ranieri to be next West Brom boss(15)(15)Just because he is the bookies favourite u state he will b the next manager he wont get the jobI bloody hope not!!^ How do you know?He will be Aston Villa manager next season in my opinion.

West Brom will go for either Steve Bruce or former assistant, Michael Appleton.Why all this talk about michael appleton. decent bloke yes but feel he is not the right candidate


04 May 2012 17:57:34
Burnley yesterday turned down a 5m bid from Fulham for Jay Rodriguez. They also turned down 5.5m in the summer from Southampton.

There is no way on this planet Celtic would get him for 3m. If you payed 10m, he's not furthering his career by going to play in a pub league ... no chance.(19)(6)Pub team you must be talking about burnley,when did you win the european cup,and play in front of 62,000 fans,wake up little boy.And how will he further his career at southampton or fulham he's a championship player at best with potential he would be a regular bench warmer at mid table epl team at bestCeLOLticWould rather play in a pub league with a big team winning medals and getting into europe every season than play for a bottom run off the mill championship team !!Accrington Stanley would make Europe in your league .. Celtic couldn't afford Rodriguez and if he went he would be the best player in that league buy some distance.Mate he's not referring to your club Celtic are a great club in SCOTLAND, on the world stage they don't have a chance. Scottish football is on the decline and has been for years, so why would jay rod move to a club who are possibly in one I the worst leagues in Europe dominated by two sides the rest are league two standard.Whats champions league>?Celtic Fans need to wake up to the fact that there is very little money in Scotland despite the 60k fans. The chances of either scotish teams doing anything in Europe is as likely a Newcastle winning the league

You can play European football for Bangor City, doesn't mean you are "furthering your career"He just scored 21 goals in the championship and is only 22 .. Connor Wickham went Sunderland for 8-10m. Jay has more to his game than Wickham. Quick, strong, good in the air, scores all kinds of goals ... more than good enough for them Prem.So £10m for a championship striker. Arsenal paid the same for a German International and regular goalscorer in the Bundesliga!! No wonder football in England is broken.The value of a player does not rest upon the league in which he plays but the value that he would bring to a new team. We are talking about a very talented young player here and I'm sure his value will be decided sooner rather than later.


04 May 2012 17:39:07
Spurs bid 22m for Thiago Alcantara(9)(29)Be careful - twitchy will take spurs to that planet where clubs live beyond thier means...if you know what I mean....Where did spurs get 22m from. If they had that money they would spend it on a striker aka adebayorWhy would we want adebayor yeah he's scored a few goals for us but defoe has played a lot less games and still got more goals for us, thiago never seen much of him but looks decent wouldn't pay 22mill though 12-15mill and for strikers i'd love to see if we could get rossi or falcaoThiago is on the way to inheriting Xavi's place in the Barca midfield via Fabregas. Barca already went through the noise of getting him fully signed last summer they're not going to toss it away for what amounts to walking around money for them.


04 May 2012 17:22:01
Any Middlesbrough rumours?(4)(14)Yep, you're a small club with a stadium two times too big for you.

When your team struggled in the Premiership your fans always went missing. Terrible attendances.

Now you're in the Championship (where you belong), your fans have started turning out dressed as red seats. Sell-outs every week by the look of it.For the size of our town 140.000 population the crowds are good wat we get as a percentage ,take a look at other clubs


04 May 2012 17:04:20
charlton will play in nike next season the home will be traditional red and white the away will be black , true story(11)(9)Its on the Charlton OS.Ok thanks for that , i knew this way b4 though in march /april


04 May 2012 17:01:01
Reading fc have made offers for Lee Martin of Ipswich, Stephen crainey of Blackpool and Joel ward of portsmouth(6)(29)What is it with all this Reading offers crap, Martin will stay at Ipswich, Ward will go to Ipswich, and Crainie is not for sale at Blackpool, if the Pool win the playoffs he will be staying regardlessThis is news to reading fc let alone everyone else.Wont Ipswich ever sell a player then?Stephen crainey, he is a very slow defender, Leeds had him 2004-2006. He will get found against quick wingers


04 May 2012 16:58:39
Norwich interested in Carlos Cuellar who is out of contract at the end of the season.(21)(13)


04 May 2012 16:56:03
Newcastle and Southampton are set to go head to head for Burnley RB Kieran Trippier(16)(6)Not a chance he's already stated that he's lovin life at the turf and in football terms he couldn't have made a better decision in moving to burnley. Unless your willing to pay a stupid amount of money he's not going anywhere


04 May 2012 16:29:59
Lets be honest Thomasz Kuzcack will not be joining, we are getting more money but still no enough to pay his wages. Watford still no bids for Mariappa which is good. My great uncle kevin lye is a goalie coach at vicarage road and has seen Cwyka there and also Charlie Austin.(3)(19)Would you want Kuzcack ? ever seen his mistakes for Utd at the end of last season ? they almost cost MUFC the title.Kuszczak has been good for us...only one notable mistake and that was in his first game for us. Other than that he has kept us in a few games and made countless top draw saves. Would want him but we can't compete wages wise. Cwyka is possible too, but no way Austin is coming.Not true. Reading have made a bid for Mariappa. Not sure if accepted etc but the bid has been made.And LOL at you signing Charlie Austin.Wow your uncle must have done well to replace alec chamberlain as goalkeeper coach and no one to realise it. a load of rubbish. we dont have the money to sign austin if we dont have the money to sign kuzcackz(not sure on spelling) that is the simplicity. also you must be less than 10 to have a great uncle working as a coach still. stop posting utter bullLOL at you, never heard of two goalkeeper coaches, ever heard of football manager think you find there is a guy called Kevin Lye and btw watford have rejected the bid from reading because over the years we have had a bit of a rivalryThere is no rivalry between Reading and Watford, apart from banter about that "ghost goal". This would certainly not be a reason to stop a deal, so this is a Kevin Lie.Actually i have heard of both and kevin lye does not exist on football manager or on the watford fc website. maybe youre playing it and have created your supposed great uncle and signed austin and in the meantime got confused with real life....


04 May 2012 16:27:44
Yakubu and Livermore(loan) to southampton source:(3)(31)Dreaming again lolSorry how is this dreaming exactly? Compared to some of the rubbish being spouted on here from various clubs this is possible compared to them.This is actually quoted from a football website, so the person who put it on here isnt dreaming as you so put it...Get back in your box, Saints. You're still a small club punching above your weight.

Yakubu? LOLYakubu LOL . I agree and i'm a saints fan. Saints wouldn't waste money investing in a hasbeen. Jake livermoore? really? a bit more imagination pleaseIT WAS ON A FOOTBALL WEBSITE! He was quoting it..No dreaming, no imaginating...just quoting!Yakubu... the same one that played for Leicester and Blackburn (16k max next season) Rovers? Probably jump at joining Saints.Yakubu is ex Pompey and would not go to Southampton.


04 May 2012 16:11:03
Barnsley are set to sign defender Alex Bruce and winger Lloyd Sam. Both players are out of contract after being released by Leeds.(12)(17)Bruce likely to Burnley & Sam to Charlton


04 May 2012 15:01:20
hi ed, any realistic ins or outs at Leicester? An do you think theres any chance of heskey coming in? {Ed025's Note - no news really mate..but hesky is a no no..(2)(5)


04 May 2012 16:16:05
Reading have reactivated their interest in Zambian Stoppila Sunzu. The centre back, who became African champion with his national side in February, was set to join The Royals some seasons ago, but the transfer failed because his work permit was denied by those days. However, he has earned many caps since then, so he currently has more chances to join Reading in the short term.(5)(15)Bit of a random one aint it? If this was close to happening before then we'd have heard about it... and we didn't.

Noooooo!!"Reading have reactivated their interest in Zambian Stoppila Sunzu"

SINCE WHEN, we have never had any interest in this guy whoever he is.Reading have shown interest in him. He was on trial with us and we wanted to sign him but we couldn't due to work permit issues as the OP has stated.He did have a trial at Reading some years ago.

04 May 2012 15:57:20
Southampton FC are interested in Jay Rodriguez from Burnley and Gary Hooper from Celtic and have offers on the table for both forwards.

They are also thinking about making an offer for Daniel Sturridge dependant on who Chelsea sign over the summer and whether he will be a start there or not.

Also thinking about bringing in John Guidetti from Citeh or Luc Castaignos from Inter on loan to add some depth up front - as both are under 21.

They are also looking at Zaha and Matt Phillips to add some pace on the wings - with Phillips it depends on what happens to Blackpool in the play-offs. Riyo Miyachi on loan from the Arsenal is another option being looked at.

Danny Guthrie and Henri Lansbury are also being looked at to add to the midfield options. Guthrie on a free and Lansbury on loan.

Matt Kilgallon and Scott Dann in central defence, Scott Sutter at right back and Erik Pieters at left back are also be considered.(11)(30)Saints fan here...Jay Rod maybe, Gary Hooper wants to stay at Celtic. Daniel Sturridge your having a laugh! Oh and how many strikers do you think we want?! Zaha will end up at a bigger club, the rest COULD be possible.As rumours go that was an amusing read but in reality just one of those potential signings would send Saints fans into raptures!Sounds like a whole new team ...good luck of little faith in the players that got you there ....wouldnt expect many of those quoted moving to a club where they would be getting plastic splinters every week something has to giveYou haven't got a clue.
If you really are a Saints supporter try to understand what the club are trying to achieve:
Firstly, any signings will be kept quiet until they happen-so your posting is just rubbish.
Secondly, the aim is maintain the style of play that has been successful, maintain the core of the team that has also been successful and build to a situation where 50% of the team is developed internally-why do you think £15m is being spent on training facilities if this was not the case?
All new players brought in will need to be able to not only fit in with a pass and move style of play but will also need to be able to mix into the very strong team ethic which exists and the Saints Way.
Whilst Saints have the resource available they will not pay over the odds and will bring in overseas players if home players appear too pricey.
Just think how Saints have managed to achieve what they have in such a short time and don't think they will be changing that policy whilst they get established in the Premiership.^ Very well said, mate. Think you should copy and post it repeatedly until the prats stop posting their bs.The saints way boot it up to ricky hope for the bestI don't think that this post is that far off. I could quite imagine that they are attempting on all these fronts. However I would imaging that they will end up with 3 maxUmm - if you read it I don't think they were suggesting that Saints would sign all those players - just that Saints are interested in those players. I would expect Saints to sign a striker, a winger a left back and a centre back at a mimimum. So it would be one of those 3 forwards - and it's on record they bid for Jay Rod and Hooper in January.Saints are investing in youth for the future - and the training ground - but that's not going to keep them in the Premier League next season the season after that. Cortese has made it quite clear Saints are here to stay so expect them to spend some money if he is serious about it!"The Saints way boot it up to Rickie hope for the best" - Clearly you havent watched Saints play at all this season..They played the best football in the Championship mateTalk about ideas above your station + how do you think you are going to pay their contracts when you are back in the 2 division ?Whatever way people think or say we play,who cares,it got us promotion back to the Premier League,lot of envy surfacing.Jealous fools.


04 May 2012 15:51:50
Winger Jakob Jantscher has attracted some Premier League clubs to sign him, such as Newcastle, West Brom and Swansea, as well as some Bundesliga sides, like Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Austrian international has been in a terrific form this season, scoring 13 goals in 25 league games for Red Bull Salzburg.(6)(3)He would be a great signing for any mid-table Premier League side. But 'Gladbach is more desperate to find a replacement for Marco Reus (to Dortmund), and Jantscher is seen as the ideal player to play for them.I wouldn't be so surprised... Do you remember West Brom signed Tchoyi from Salzburg 2 years ago?


04 May 2012 15:31:51
charlton to sign liam lawrence from portsmouth for 150k(9)(17)Pompey need the cash, but 150K is too low.


04 May 2012 15:30:06
Southampton is considering the signing of Haris Medunjanin. The Bosnian international has had some problems with his manager at Maccabi Tel Aviv, so any good offers will be welcome by the Israeli club.(6)(8)


04 May 2012 15:08:12
Poyet having been good friends Diego Forlan and is rumoured to come to Brighton and live rent free. He is struggling to settle at Inter Milan.

(The Sun) FACT. {Ed025' Note - dont buy the sun!!!(3)(32)Funniest so far!I clicked believable as in believable not to buy the sun , the rest is tosh.MASSIVE LOL AT THIS! You plum!The only time The Scum newspaper and fact can be used in a sentence is when something like "does not contain any" is in it.Wow, can't wait to see him linking up with Michael Owen & Beckham.

Laughable, we can't afford Dean Marney from Burnely so why post something like this.


04 May 2012 14:24:15
hi ed, do you no anything about alan judge to leicester and cameron stewart to leicester. {Ed025's Note - no mate sorry..(0)(5)


04 May 2012 14:52:35
jermaine beckford and jordan rohdes to celtic(6)(33)No just noWhy would they want beckfordMaybe to replace Hooper-sorry, I forgot, he's not going anywhere. He will just sit it out within a team head and shoulders above any competition north of the border and be satisfied not to stretch himself and see how much he could develope in a competitive league! If so, then he is not the sort of guy who anyone in the Premiership would want-we will see.Wake up and smell the coffee. More chance of signing Laurel and hardyWould love Rhodes but I seriously doubt that Celtic could afford him. You can keep Beckford though!


04 May 2012 14:48:43
Wolves fan here. Adam Hammill is set to leave Molineux and return to Barnsley for £250, approx half of what we paid for him.

I always though he should have been given more of a chance at Wolves because he showed signs of being able to cut it at Premier League level, his crossing was fantastic. Unluckily for him, he just didn't get a look-in with Jarvis, Kightley and O'Hara all ahead of him.

Good move for Barnsley both for the profit they've made and the player returning that they developed so well under Mark Robins.(17)(24)That,s about our limit is £250 Transfer Fee OR Wages?By the way, that is £250kWhat a load of bull. Hammill may well get a look in once a new manager is appointed. And even if he didn't, he won't go to Barnsley and Wolves will sell him at a profit.Barnsley fan- it would be nice to see that happen but honestly cant, with Jarvis more than likely leaving i think Hammil might start getting more games at wolvesHammill played his last game a while ago...and couldnt be happier hes been nothing but hassle since hes been here...., hasnt been in the team for a reason...and thats down to the stinking attitude he has and the unrest he has made inside the club not to mention the numerous fights his had ...biggest one being with wardy ..., nothing better than a championship squad player...., will soon be sold but id say at a profit ...!!


04 May 2012 14:45:31
Reading are already a self supportive club there will be money but a limited amount.
They will live within their means.
the deal has not been aproved yet .
but like brian mac said watch this space.
there will be signings and a couple may suprise you(6)(9)Couple may surprise ?...dont tell me..Keown and Ferdinand?

...dont really care EXCEPT............ NOT S Hunt!Pleased to hear it, so glad the deal went through.Living within their own means, Wow that's excellent news, now tell all the other Reading posters on here, as it seems by all accounts Reading will have a 65 man 1st team squad for next season, lol


04 May 2012 14:41:27
Scotsman Steven Fletcher is linked with a move to Aston Villa. However, the offer will run depending on who is selected as new Villa's manager for the next season.(9)(3)Hope its true,he will score for anyone that gives good service,very underated

jeffrey monakana gunners free
mark roberts stevenage free
scott laird stevenage 200k
chuks aneke season loan
max ehmer season loan(2)(12)Scott Laird from Stevenage for £200k.....No way would he be available for that price, double it and you may just be close.

Love the idea that we would buy a player from Man Utd ..... Fergie wouldnt sell any player to PNE after we potted his son....He also hates us after the trouble we caused with Danny WelbeckJames is out ov contract anywayWe will still have to pay a fee as he is still youngWestley has already said it's 14+ free's, loans and youth players for next season at PNE. As long as they are over 6 feet tall and like hoofing the ball!Have you even watched pne lately they dont play long ball so why dont people get there facts right before spouting nonsense we completely outpassed huddersfield and charlton recently.Fromwhat ive heard. mark roberts wont be joining preston and scott laird is being watched by championship teams.

big rumours around southampton today that steve sidwell could be the first signing of the summer also a rumour floating about that a youngster from arsenal could sign in a deal bringing luke shaw the other way don't know who this could be, but would rather keep shaw as he is tipped to be a future england left back.(1)(24)We wouldnt let Shaw go, especially now we are in the Premier League.And sidwell no thanks

Shrewsbury need to get better gates in division 1 to substain there existance,even additional funds from the FL helps but need better gates(8)(2)They're not alone there.What are you on about.....???
Financially secure and one of the best supported teams
Will only get stronger.......This is complete nonsense - we are one of the most financially secure clubs in the Football League


04 May 2012 14:14:50
Heard Oxford trying to off load constabe.
Should have maybe accepted Swindon offer.
Need money,however all this B/S about going into administration is just not true(3)(10)Dont want Constable and he will never play for us now and Paolo has stated he will move on to players who want to play for our club. Also glad we didnt sign him at the time i think Constable thinks he is a big fish at little Oxford whereas if he came to Swindon he would be a little fish as their are bigger and better players than him. Constable is a L2 player and we want better players than that now we are promoted.Swindon did not want him because he messed dicanio about and he said he will never sign him for any club.Who is your source that they want to unload Constable... I hear we are interested in him so may be something in this. Dont think he's had such a good season so his price will have dropped. Think Swindon offered silly money too but agree he is not Division 1 player


04 May 2012 14:14:05
strong Rumours in the westham camp that if they do not make it to the prem there maybe up to 10 players sold to re-finance(14)(2)That's fact not rumour.I would say its a cast iron certainty

alan judge from notts county to leicester young promising young player just the sort of player pearson likes. fee will be around 500,000(4)(11)Notts fan here, You will have to offer a lot lot more than 500k my friend to even temp himNotts Fan or Notts Chairman? £500k for an unproven player at Championship level to a skint club, I think you will find Notts will snap Leicesters hands off mateIf you have seen him play you will find out hes worth alot more that 500k my friendLeicester linked with yet another non entity from the lower leagues, when will it end for gods sake,we must aim a little higher than that, surelyUnproven at Championship level? You forgot his time with Plymouth at that level where he tore many teams apart. Either you forgot, or you simply commented without having a clue what you were talking about.
Judge is a class player, and now he is playing regularly this is showing through. Will go far, and £500k is laughable for a player of his ability. Notts County have a real gem there, no surprise he is doing well for them. Typical "big club" mentality from LCFC fans, who haven't really got a clue!

West ham to sign nick powell from crewe and loan him to barnsley,frank nouble will also sign for barnsley on a 2 year contract(4)(19)Hope we dont get noble back !We dont want your crapDo West Ham have the money to buy players to loan out?Actually my nephew plays for Crewe and posted before that West Ham are after him amongst others (no big Prem teams , no offence, like some have claimed). The Barnsley thing isn't true thoughA west ham fan who is talking st just because they think there to good for the championship

Burnley to sign Josh Mcquoid after previously being on loan at the Clarets for a fee in the region of 350k. Brett Pitman could also be arriving from Bristol City, having previously played under Howe at Bournemouth(5)(13)Burnley can HAVE him FOR £500GRD! Thats what WE PAID FOR HIM!Mcquoid has asked to leave millwall. Millwall feel this is a good financial decision instead of letting him run down his contract. use his wages elsewhere


04 May 2012 13:28:53
What I did hear was Dicanio is set for West Ham regardless if there promoted or not.
Where that leaves Swindon god knows as he still has 1 year left on contract.However when has that ever matterd Hoddle/Wise/walked
seems hard on Swindon Fans and Board.
What is amazing is the debt that West Ham are supposed to have and Dicanio is used to getting his own way.Still maybe B/S(4)(15)Allardice??This is Bullhit Di Canio wont go if you have a clear out of players plus he is not ready yet for the championship as a manager.I guess winning the play offs wont help sam, and dicanio negotiating next seasons line up and his contact extension has any bearing on him going to west ham either


04 May 2012 13:28:41

Noises from Liverpool
Watching Adam Johnson!
With Man Blue still determined to spend, his options are starting to decrease - will all depend on the sky blues spending and his possibly ommision from European squad(18)(7)I hope not, even this xenophobic Liverpool manager must have noticed that buying British doesn't not mean buying quality, it usually means overspending. I hope that the American owners say no. And that he the manager should look in Europe for value for money.

Matt Jarvis and Steven Fletcher are targets of Martin O'Neil but he will have to get players out for wages sake, transfer money won't be an issue because Ellis Short is going to back O'Neil(11)(10)Players plus cash swap would do nicely

m.jarvis 4m
k.doyle 6m

r.jaidi released
l.barnard loan
d.connoly free
j.puncheon 2m loan(12)(28)J.puncheon 2m

LMFAO, four million for Jarvis ?I'm a saints fan, and saying we would spend 11 million on two forwards, one being KEVIN DOYLE, is ridiculous. stop posting this tripe, you're making saints fans look stupid.No one wanted Puncheon for 500k in January, why on earth would someone now pay £2m for him, when he played about 5 more games for us and was useless. Pathetic.Doyle - £6M - DEAL
Jarvis - £4M - NO DEALJ Rod has plenty of options i.e:Everton,Fulham,Norwich,Wigan etc,all clubs any player SHOULD choose over Saints,not knocking Saints achievments but he'd be mad to turn down clubs of that calibre for Southampton,as a Burnley supporter i'll be gutted to see him go but the lad has been destined for the big time for a few seasons but i'm sorry Saints are not big time(yet)Saints you dont need to look stupid :)Whoever you are, you have no clue!
If you are really a Saints fan stop posting this nonsense-the fees are stupid and I suspect all the individuals are way off, apart from maybe Jarvis and that has been in the national press for several days.£4 mill for an england international - double it & you're about right. But then you'll be at the back of a fairly big queue of teams wanting to sign himdoyle wont be leaving wolves this i promise you..., jarvis yeah we have all heard the rumours about stoke...but dont be to sure that he will leave either..., and this is a fact not one player from our club would leave and join yours..., you dont have the financial backing for one let alone being able to attract big players...Hillarious...from the apparent Burnley fan...FYI Saints are a bigger club than Fulham, Norwich and Wigan...the jealousy on this site is unrealIndeed Fulman and Wigan 'bigger time' than Saints... what is that guy on. I'm sure if Burnley were promoted you would understand him leaving for Wigan?


04 May 2012 13:00:08
That's rubbish this take over has been going on for ages so there won't be any issues that could prevent the signing of players. Even if the is true ( very much doubt it ) what about the money reading have got through getting promoted. To be honest think this person might be lying(5)(3)


04 May 2012 12:49:14
Strong interest in James Coppinger from
a few sides, most notably; Leeds,
Leicester, Southampton, Reading.
Keen to join Southampton or Reading,

Jack Collison on the move if West Ham
aren't promoted potential suitors;
Reading, Norwich, Blackpool (should they make it out of the playoffs).(4)(20)Leicester are offering him 20k a week to join and i think that has made his head turnWould love coppinger at leicesterLeicester will cutting their wage bill so no more £20k+ a week salaries

Please bring in a 'name'!

Norwich have changed their focus from Jordan Rhodes to Mohammed Abdellaoue as their striker target.(13)(9)I think Norwich need to concentrate on their defense first. No clean sheet this season and they could not cope with Suarez.Check your facts mate, they have kept 2 cleans sheets this season..........yes 2!

Sheffield United to sign Brighton's Will Hoskins on a permanant deal. Hoskins only joined Seagulls in the summer of 2011 but he has been limited to first team selection and has played the majority of this season on loan with The Blades. He wishes to move up north due to home sickness.(17)(7)

BREAKING NEWS!! my mate at reading has txted me saying when the take over happens there might be NO money for transfers untill the next transfer window in JAN because of fa regulations and legal issues(14)(15)If your mate knew anything he would know that Brian has been scouting players for months so I very much doubt this. There are no regulations that stop a team buying players once they've been taken over.My mate of a mates cousins dad uncle aunty ... Ed why do you allow people to post this stuff? With no reliable source or even make any sense. {Ed025's Note - ermmm....because its a rumour site..When a club has been sold it has to have a 6-8 week period where the FA check all finances and regularities players can be sold or brought in for that period with money changing hands..but players can be loaned in ..i think hes correct

04 May 2012 10:25:45
Leicester are not going to be signing loads of players like some on here are claiming.

Hopeful on the vardy being completed soon but plenty of interest from other clubs.

Kane is a loan deal, NOT a full transfer, THFC seem up for it.

Bids rejected for Chester and Stewart but won't be the end of it. Stewart seems more likely than Chester who would favour a move to the North West. A lot will depend on what unfolds at Hull.

Koren bid rejected but expect another to go in soon.(13)(3)Cool the more players a club signs = a qpr a team who dont have a clue what there doing..looks like more champship football again for lesta after next seasonFesta have been banging on about hull players for ages. None will happen hull are not in financial trouble, won't sell big name players. Especially to the ladyboys from lesta

Burnley would not sell their top scorer to us even if we did finish above them in the league. we need a striker and i would have him any day but this is rubbish because their is no reality in this what so everIf Burnley want to offer £8m + Austin then we might think about it

Leeds boss Neil Warnock is showing speculative interest in disgruntled Stoke striker Cameron Jerome. Jerome has publicised his need for more regular involvement and this week warned he may have to find a new club as he is in "The peak of his career. The £4 million price tag, which Stoke paid to take him from Birmingham, could be a stumbling block for any potential deal yet speculation has it the quick fire sale of Adam Clayton could be used to fund any potential bid.(4)(25)Peak of his career? That's just sad.

Steve EFCCome on it took him about 90 seconds to score v Everton- he can't be that goodHes got 4 years left to run and why would he want go to leeds a poor low division outfit..he would sooner be on the bench against teams like man united then play for leeds against rochdale lolMaybe he just wants to play for a BIG team? Can't blame the lad really....Stoke are a huge club. Their stadium holds a gigantic 27,000 and they are regarded as an enormous force to be reckoned with in the Premier League. I think its fair to say that the Premier League would badly miss Stoke if they were relegated.

Stoke have also never won a major trophy, emphasizing beyond question the size of the club.There isn't a bigger team than Stoke.They're all massive. He has made noise about not getting starts but is becoming a bit of a favourite coming off the bench. Can see him getting more game time next season if Jones and Fuller are shipped out

cameron stewart either off to leicester or west ham for 5 million quid
and supposely the allams can afford a striker worth 40 grand worth of wages a week but who?
and supposely we could of signed billy dsharp but barmby and Adam pearson didnt want him
plus and the reason adam pearson has left due to wanting to give 100% attention to hull fc(1)(11)That's bull about sharp as he was one of the most wanted strikers in the championship along with Maynard idiotFantastic post............. Obviously written by a delusional 5 year old, judging by the grammar!! There are major holes in this rumour, West Ham won't be making any transfer plans untill after the playoffs, there are far more proven players available for less than 5mil and finally Sharps transfer saga was well reported by the press so if hull were interested it would of been noted!Unlikely any team in Championship will pay £5m for 1 player or wages of £40k a week. It wouldn't stack up under new finance rules

Wake up and rub the cornflakes off your face, Reading is past history for Gilfy Sig Swansea is his adopted home and he will sign ....(7)(18)Swansea got Gylfi because they were in Prem at time and Gylfi is a Prem league player...Reading are a Prem league team let's wait and see...your post could come back and haunt you ...Hah keep dreaming mate, Hes only there because of Brendon. He loves Reading, his home, family and best freinds are there, he regularly come down to our training ground and speaks to Mcdermot all the time. He would 100% choose Reading over Swansea but this is all irrelivant as he is too good for both of us, he off to a top 6 club.As a reading fan, i think its a load of b/s that either of us will get him. and if im honest i dont want us too, it would be a step back in his career that i would want to see him make. i really hope he does the intelligent thing and goes to a top 6 clubSwansea can't afford him. They could only offer £4 Million. Why would Hoffenheim let him go for less then they paid for him?


04 May 2012 02:21:06

GK - Hart
GK - Carson

ST - Rooney

ST - Defoe or Bent if he's deemed fitWhy on earth would Carroll be picked? If Crouch- the one player who can score England goals gets left behind for him then they may as well stay at home. Walcott also doesn't deserve another chance and Foster isn't good enough anyway. A chance Hodgson may change his mind about retirement but would be a poor choice. Good to see no one include that passenger DowningMidfield has no creativity, cannot string two passes together.ED in one of your replies you say good squad, don't you want Gerrard to go to the Euro's {Ed025's Note - i want all the old guard out mate!...the likes of rio, gerrard, lampard, terry etc.. we need to build a new dynamic side, without these dinosaurs in it!..Does anyone know if arteta is available for england? hes been in england for a few years and may be qualified now and i dont think hes played for spain. but walker will def get in ahead of johnson. phil jones cos of his versatility aswel.i think chamberlain might mis out due to his lack of starts over the course of the season. will bent be back aswel? no downing please!Arteta cannot play for england as he has represented spain u17s at the u17s world cupNo terry please
no scholes
might as well be dads
armyGuys rooney isnt gonna get pick as hes banned for 4 games, and nathan dyer and danny graham have to be considered for england!Haha if u took all the oldies then they wouldnt have a chance because u need a bit of experience in there would easily take terry and gerrardThis will be the england team



britton(swansea)/johnson(norwich)for cover

rooney(maybe)Hodgkin has already said he'll take Rooney



Barry (he'll go but shouldn't)

Bent (do t rate him but he scores)

Fulham is preparing an offer for Sevilla's favourite Gary Medel. The West London club wants to cover and/or replace Dickson Etuhu with the tenacious Chilean international.(4)(4)


03 May 2012 22:52:15
Liverpool will attempt to sign Chilean international Mauricio Isla from Udinese Calcio in the summer, once he recovers from an injury. Dalgish wants more serious competition for Glen Johnson at the right back, and versatile Isla is one of the main candidates.(6)(11)Pretty sure he is a winger.......For Udinese he plays either as winger or central midfielder (when Dusan Basta at the right flank). But for Chile he certainly plays either right winger or right back.


03 May 2012 22:33:15
Kieran Lee, Oldham's multiple player of the year award winner for the past two seasons, considering contract offer from Preston North End.(3)(6)Why would Lee drop down the league to a team in so much trouble? I dont think you could afford his wages as he's the best paid player at Oldham and you would have to break Prestons' wage structure to get him.Would,nt think wages would be a problem pal we pay ridiculous amounts of money in wages and we have a multimillionaire owner who has promised to back westley. Preston will be challenging for the title this year without a doubt so why would.nt lee join.


03 May 2012 22:27:18
leicester team next season


ST- MARTYN WAGHORN(4)(27)Er, you wish! lol

You need to bring your finances down big time for the new fair play rules that come in for next season.

No chances for all those new faces until a lot of expensive dross leaves.Only 4 new players which won't cost much so should fit financial fair play rulesSouthampton are said to be looking at mini schmike...I heard Spurs want Schmeichel as a future replacement for Friedel and Cudicini....Incorrect the FFP rules are only a guide for the enxt 2 seasons, after which time they are permanent. So strictly we dont need to adhere to the rules just yet.


03 May 2012 22:25:07
Izale mckloud is joining Pompey from barnet(1)(17)No one is joining Pompey until they get a new owner!

It's like the saying if it ain't broke, dont try to fix it! Which is why he will probably go back millwall, if spurs get europa then probably in jan?The Kane deal is a loan anyway and Tottenham are up for it.

I'm not saying it wont , just asking.

"Southampton is his main option after Manchester United stopped showing interest." - Hoffenheim website on Sigurdsson(10)(29)Link?Dear god please stop....Saints fan here and this is just stupid now. {Ed025's Note - i agree mate..Im a saints fan and its embarrassing these rumours !! cant we make realistic rumours...You Saints fans are living in another world. Sigurdsson is going top four, not a newly promoted Premiership club - and that's from a Reading fan who Gylfi would have gladly come back too, but he's clearly outgrown us as well now.

Good luck to him. But unless you're a top four club you can forget about it!

And Reading get a 30% sell-on of profit, hence Hoffenheim wanting £10m and not a penny lower..He'd want to play in an eleven man team ...not a one man team no chance ..He will only go to Southampton if nobody else wants himLol at the Reading fan, it's obviously not true, don't get so het up about it. Meant to be quiet in a library...anyway, why would he gladly come back to you if he could get top 4? Your old news. Grow up and forget the past. We had walcott, bale and chamberlain. We are going to sign them all as we had them once. Sarcasm btw. idiotGuys this is ridiculous now, sigurdsson is either going to top 6 team, but swansea have first option to buy him if they can cough up 6-8 million, dont believe me? go to google and put in swansea evening post it the main sport heading!

Dexter Blackstock Spotted At Moor Farm {Ed025's Note - maybe he was strawberry picking?..(5)(11)Wow, I've heard some carp, but Blackstock to Derby. The same Blackstock that labelled Derby fans a 'disgrace' for the Doughty chants (which were shocking btw). Don't think the fans would take too kindly to him though.Sadly its true. He said he can't wait to play in front of away followings that number 279 at times;)Strawberries on a moor? {Ed025's Note - no a farm!Least we know he wasn't strawberry picking with Andy Reid, does he even know what fruit is? 5 fruits a day Andy, not five burgers.Suppose it could be true, must get tiring seeing all those empty pink seats every other week, when he could be playing in front of 30k


03 May 2012 22:04:24
I have heard that peterborough has just put some people on the transfer list and realised some players.

Goalkeeper Joe Lewis come to Watford because Watford need a goalie (no offence Loach, even though you had a good last game!!)(2)(5)I'm a Posh fan and I wouldn't wish a keeper like Lewis on anyone! He's been awful for us.We have Scott Loach and Johnathon Bond. Loach is still a good prospect, and Bond has been playing in League One and is still a teenager.

Colchester midfielder Anthony Wordsworth.

Dag&Red keeper Chris Lewington.

Crawley youngster Hope akpan.

Liam Larwence, Sylvian Eblanks Blake, Sam Boldock, George Boyd and Paul Coutts are also on Chris Powells wish list.(7)(14)SEB will not be leaving Wolves will score goals for fun in championship and Fletcher n Doyle may be on their way out so SEB will be first striker on the team sheetAntonio can leave Reading for £1.5m

Chruch can go for a packet of Frazzle's and half a Mars Bar.

You will not find a worse striker, trust me!George Boyd ideally would probably like to progress his careerThe only one of those that makes any sense to me is Paul Coutts.

Charlton to sign Charlie Austin or Jay Rodriguez from Burnley. {Ed025's Note - forget about rodriguez mate..(1)(29)If Jay goes anywhere its to a Premier League club! {Ed025's Note - true..Thats the FUNNIEST thing IVE heard for a long time!ha ha ha etc!I CANT STOP LAUGHING!!!I can't stop laughing either, why is a decent player like Austin at Burnley I mean it makes no sense does it?Doesnt make sense, who do you support - person united

I agree with the laughing comment though, and if either Austin or Jay go it would be to a Prem club.From what papers have said, Everton are in for Rodriguez, so even when we fail to find the cash, he still won't be caught dead at Charlton.

Hobbs is out injured until Christmas and Leeds couldnt afford him if he was fit anywayWouldn't it be easier for Leicester to just put a bid in for the whole of hull?

David Beckham is looking to move back to England after Posh spice is rumoured to be interested in a modelling job in London and the Beckham's wanting their children to be schooled in the UK. But as Beckham is nearing the end of his career he just wants to play week in week out so is most likely to join a Championship Club. Charlton, Brighton, West Ham (providing they don't go up) and Wolves are all interested. The deal is most likely to include a clause which allows Beckham to complete his coaching badges and progress through to management at the club he signs for.(5)(42)LOL! Firstly Beckham already has his coaching badges. . . Secondly your saying he would reject the premiership to go to a team like them? I think not, if he was to go to London it would be QPR or Tottenham but hes ending it in LA after he recenly signed a new deal, also how do you knw what jobs Posh is offered?And Brighton no chance.Utter tosh becks has said he aint intreated in managementCharlton are not interested and neither are the Charlton fans so do us all a favour and sign for someone else.Huge Wolves fan and as much as I'd love this to be true, Posh n Becks in Wolverhampton ooh me thinks not lol.

BobbybuffonThe most overated player ever in english football we dont want hin back here he thinks he is a yankDoes anyone actually see Beckham being a manager?
Regardless of the fact he has or is doing his coaching badges, he's one of the richest footballers ever. I can't see him stood in a dugout when he could do a range of other things that'll pay him a lot more.

Portsmouth are expected to be bought out by Multi-Billionaire Al Hurad Alij, Appleton has stated if this takeover happens then he will try and keep around 10 players and bring in a lot more. Appleton also expects some loan signings from Man City, Man Utd or West Brom.(5)(39)Absolutely deluded!
Bye bye Pompey.Hope soI'm glad they keep the daily dose of humour going,.The most gulible fans in the league...Why would anyone buy you when there are a dozen clubs with better facilities,training grounds,academy's,bigger fan bases and championship or premiership status....Is this the same as the your previous 5 owners who all claimed to be multi billionaires, but turned out to be freuds and crooks?

Or is he just made up (must likely)Just looked up the billionaires lists worldwide, guess what, no such name of Al Hurad Alij, so either your spelling of this prospect is wrong, or your clutching at straws, the later comes to mind


03 May 2012 17:48:03
simon grayson is after adam clayton(leeds) and he wants to swap for rhodes as he highly rates clayton and he bought him from man city and enjoyed working with him looks like the might whites are gonna snap up jordan rhodes(7)(30)No chance. Rhodes will end up with a Prem clubJordan rhodes to leeds? are you high!
Theres so much wrong with this statement
1. clayton too good for hudds
2. rhodes too good for leeds
3. IF huddersfield go up whats stopping them from finishing higher than leeds nxt season with the money they have
4.its just not gonna happen kidda
5.UTTNot sure ths will happenDream on sunshine. It will never happen, not in a month of sundays. Rhodes will go to a prem club or even stay with Hudds if they get promoted which is expecting a lot!

swindon fans skould
know thatLoad of carp!! PDC is very happy...he was in great spirits last night at the legends charity match in aid of the Wiltshire air ambulance, his interview along with Lou Macari was brilliant. He stated just last night that he was already planning for next season WITH Swindon. On this subject well done to everyone involved last night!! It was great fun to watch and loads of money was raised for a great cause.This rubbish posted by a jealous Oxford fan. Paolo is planning for next season and has stated so.

Southampton possible in's
Kasper schemical GK , Marc muniesa CB , Sebastian ruddy MF
Alberto Paloschi ST all these are strong source's for the coming season
Muniesa has just signed a new contract which has a 30 million euro buy out clause and he has just been promoted to Barca's first team for next season.(5)(11)Leeds fan here - i wouldnt bother with Schmeichel. he had problems with defensive communication all of last season (and leicester havent achieved much with him this year as well) there are much better keepers out there, and tbh from what ive seen, your current keeper Davies is better than him anyway.Why would schemicael Leave Leaicester for Southampton when he said he loves the club and had the best season hes ever had. hes going no where plus Tottenham want him.Does this guy come on each evening with rubbish rumours re Saints? Certainly seems like it.
There are no strong sources from within Saints-they will do their business quietly and once the deal is done make an announcement, so any strong sources are more than likely to be lads who sit in the neighbouring seats at school!Muniesa and paloschi are just outrageous suggestions, why do the teams coming up think they can sign these type of players!?!?!?!?We are southampton were sign who we want {Ed025's Note - you are southampton..and get what your given!..Paloschi - looks pretty poor wouldn't say he's out of our league. 5 goals for Chievo. WOW


03 May 2012 17:14:38
Since Bas Dost rejected a move to Aston villa, it looks like they will turn there attention to Manchester city star John guidetti, the swedish striker has been out on loan at feyenoord this season and has scored 20 goals in 23 appearances in the league, Manchester city may want to loan him out again instead of it being a permanent move(3)(7)Aston Villa just want to focus on staying up, they will then deal with the manager and then that is when they will sign new playersVilla didnt even enquire..... so how cud he turn us down. His agent like all agents are makin BS to get more money from agent fees

Southampton are looking to take Jerome away from stoke, seen recently that Jerome wants first team football and is fed up with life at stoke, because tony Pulis has no trust in him for the premiership games and only Europa league which stoke are not in next year, southampton looking for pace and power and feel jerome could be a good 4 million buy which would tempt stoke to part ways.(15)(25)Wont know who saints are
after till they have been
signed thats the way
saints do transfersHes on a 4 year contract and isnt fed up with stoke since he lives in birmingham lol which is 30mins down the rd ..and pulis dont sell players and stoke dont need 4 million..god reading and southamptoon fans with there made up storys are worsse then lesta fans lolCameron Jerome 4mil?, no thank you.

Norwich possible signings:

Kyle Naughton - Great loan spell loves the fans and club wants to get his career going
Henri Lansbury - Again good loan spell last season and is wanting a permanent move away from arsenal in the summer
Dani Pacheco - Would love a return to Carrow Road and he has been missing all season
Michu - Paul Lambert has expressed his interest and he likes the sound of the club from pacheco - attacking mid scores lots of goals
Moses - Wants to leave wigan and will be availble for buy as we need one more pacey winger
Adam Clayton - Put on the transfer list by neil warnock and could link up with howson and johnson
Jordan Rhodes - PL a big fan and deal looks possible as hudds may not go up
Ricardo Vaz Te - PL was upset to miss out on him in the summer and may try to get him this time round
Chris Gunter - Long interest and looks like we may wrap this one up
Kyle Bennett - E Benno's brother - wants a move from relegated donny so lambert may give the startlet a chance at the canaries
Curtis Davies - Need to strengthen the defence so he could be the man

A few may be out of our range but these are from a very reliable source.(16)(22)Do you just take any player that we don't want anymore? Clayton isn't a prem player, hey seen as you're interested do you want Billy Paynter too? He's amazing ;)Yeah, and why exactly would he be linking up with Johnson? The two never played together,Seems you were cut off before you finished, so Messi and Rooney were missing off your list!
Dehlia will have to sell a few cakes before you get anyway near some of those.Moses to Norwich ?? Lol , He will sign a new Wigan deal in the Summer as long as Martinez stays (More than likely). Norwich couldn't afford himm anyway.Most people we buy havent played prem footy before but they still get us mid table in the prem... jelousy of our manager and leeds is a s one! we will get a few of them so just wait and see you deluded jelous ......

All of these rumours are a joke?! There is no way that Jamal-Campbell Ryce and Adam Barrett would come back to Southend United.

Also, Bilel will not be signing for Newcastle or Blackpool and Ryan Hall will not sign for Shrewsbury.

Where do people hear this stuff?!!(3)(9)They will go some where or other if you don't get out of League 2.They hear them from the voices in their heads!

Watford have released four players today. These are:
Rene Gilmartin - GK
Tom James - LB
Michael Bryan - RW
Chez Isaac - CM
Expect lots of teams interested!(10)(4)WHO THE FECK ARE THEY, must be crap if Watford are releasing themEnd of contractWatford aren't that bad. They finished 11th in the Championship.Gilmartin will go to Ireland or League Two
James probably back to non-league
Bryan is playing for NI he might get some interest from League Two
Isaac will probably end up with Boreham Wood or WealdstoneWatford are a relatively small club and cannot afford to keep all the academy prospects..

In the past we have complained about releasing players that end up coming good.

Theo Robinson is a good example of that...

Bryan & Isaac have a good chance at making it - only time will tell

Good luck to them all.

03 May 2012 15:12:50
Reading are looking to bolster the strike force this summer. Last season our strongest component was our defence, which was solid. But our strikers were not exatly prolific.

From pretty respectable sources online we ave been linked with moves for Dame N'Doye and Yakubu

That is not to say we will not be signing any other players. There has been interest in Nathan Clyne, Adrian Mariappa and Ryan Bertrand.

There has been speculation form "Kids" on the site that we will be signing the likes of Doyle, Long, Hunt, and Siggurdson. Doyle and Hunt not of standard, Hunt and Siggurdson are unrealistic.

Rumours that Sol Campbell is being looked at by a newly promoted premiership side -source (metro). Can only be Saints or Reading.....At 37 not sure I would want him now. 4 -5 years ago would have been a great signing for us. Think talks closed down over wages....Phew (Reading man) {Ed020's Note - was being looked at, he had a foot injury and the offers moved on, i read the same article on the train this morning lol}(1)(17)Sol Campbell announced his retirement yesterday having not played for 12 monthsHe officially retired yesterdaySol Campbell has announced his retirementHe retired yesterday. It was on sky sportsNot very well thought through when you decided to make up this rumour, Sol Campbell announced his retirement from football on wednesday 2nd may......and you post this a day later lolI'm sure he has just announced his retirement?Youre obviously not up to date and definately on ANOTHER PLANET MATE!Think you will find its a case of "WAS" being looked at in the Janaury window by a team that has snow been promoted from the yes either Soton or ReadingHe has retired at 37 this isnt true at LLWell that told you!

Just heard from Mick Kearns that Walsall have signed a pre-contract for Izale Mcleod and are in talks with Aresnal for Joel Campbell for 3 months.

Big Tombo(6)(18)No they haven't. Domestic players can't sign pre-contracts with other clubs. This only applies to overseas players.Well as joel campbell can't get a work permit to play over here i very much doubt this.... also why would he go from regular footy in ligue 1 to play for walsall

I can confirm Coventrys on loan defends at Hibs has signed a deal with Hearts. His last game this season will be against Hearts (if Hibs play him) and his first next season will be for Hearts! He's not injured at the moment Hibs have just taken the news badly!(6)(2)That would explain his ommision from the team last night, I cant see Hibs playing him in the cup final if he has signed a pre contract at Hearts.James McPake is under contract so any deal is subject to a fee being paid which Hearts don't have and he has said he is coming back to Coventry next season.

Portsmouth are looking into getting Nathan Ellington on a free also Michael Jacobs from Northampton and goalkeeper Liam O'brien from barnet(14)(19)You lost all credibility when you mentioned Jacobs! He's valued £500k. You can't spend anything like that!At last, a sensible post about Portsmouths possible signings.No chance! You couldnt afford Jacobs and Ellingtons wages would be too high..You lot cant even pay your electric bill!OMG Pompey fans when you going to understand, until you have new owners you will not be paying any fees for any player and i agree with the above post Jacobs worth at least £500K.Jacobs is heading to the championship !! a few clubs interested.Pompey fans still think they
are in the championship

got big money to spend

Reading are very keen on him and are already in talks with he can sit on the bench getting splinters again...Allardyce wouldnt know a quality midfielder if he saw one ....hes deluded to think Chicken Wings Nolan isNorwich may also be looking at signing him, as he was very successful with us last season. The fact he is not in the squad for West Ham tonight suggests he may have rejected West Ham attempts to sign him permanently.


03 May 2012 13:00:51

03 May 2012 12:25:59
The Playoffs now look crucial for West Ham, whose spiralling debt and financial woes will be magnified tenfold should they fail to get promoted.

Failure in the playoffs will mean the forced sale of a number of first team regulars, as well as job cuts around Upton Park as they struggle to remain afloat. Rumours of an unpaid tax bill also hover over East London as some sources report that HMRC are preparing to wind up the hapless Championship outfit.

First out of the door is likely to be Sam Allardyce, with whom the board are said to be furious with for not securing automatic promotion, espescially as the Hammers have spent approximately quadruple what champions Reading have on wages and transfer fees.(21)(4)Remind you of a south coast the in blue?They spent WAY more that quadruple what we spent, we spent 1m plus whatever roberts was, West Spam spent quadruple that on Nolan alone.Birmingham also rumoured to be in financial problems if they don't go upWhen will these clubs learn that it is all about team ethic and desire, not fat cat wages, and hefty transfer fees.
Reading and Southampton remind me of Norwich & Swansea last season and could both do ok next year in premiership.
Look at Leicester also, huge money spent on transfer fees and wages and not even in play-offs.

Carayol, Bristol City scouts rate
Carayol better than current wingers
Adomah and Bolasie. It believed
Bristol Rovers will reject the bid and
will only be looking at offers of 1
million plus. A number of
championship sides have already
expressed interest in the young
winger. Carayol's contract is due
to run out next summer, however he
is currently negotiating a deal which
would see him become the highest
paid player in League 2 history.(2)(19)

front runners for ButterfieldSSN have recycled an article from last week.Mccleary will be missedYour mate is an person you should keep away from him


03 May 2012 10:55:46
Wolves are looking into the signing of either Jay Rodriguez or Charlie Austin, both of Burnley. Rodriguez has attracted premier league interest and would cost at least 6 million and Burnley would demand a fee in the region of 3 million for 22 year old Austin.(1)(29)Wolves need to sell to buy, as part of the new fair play rules that come into play next season. Several first teamers MUST go.Rod is attracting prem attention yet staying in the championship. Very much doubt thatWolves don't "need" to sell anyone. We have a wage structure in place and all contracts are reduced now relegation has been confirmed. Players are kept on long-term contracts to prevent a mass exodus. If a player demands to move and threatens disruption, that may be different. We even have some money to spend. We may well sell players, but that will be the choice of the Manager (whoever that will be) and the Owner.

And regarding the price of Rodriguez - this rumours site reports that Southampton are looking to sign Jarvis for £4million yet we are expected to pay "at least £6 million" for Rodriguez. Hmmm. We may as well keep Jarvis, Fletcher, Doyle and co.Rodriguez is not going to leave Burnley for another championship club, especially since there are a number of premiership clubs likely to go for him


03 May 2012 10:54:43
Emile Heskey in talks with Derby County and has reportedly signed a pre-contract with them. This is after he was denied a contact extention with A Villa.(8)(15)Bosman rules are different in England than in Europe. No pre-contract agreements can be made until the current contract expires.

Do your homework in future.

Leeds to make £5miilion bid for Piquionne(6)(45)Bates spend 5mill on one player to play in
the championship you are taking the old
proverbial not a chance {Ed020's Note - us leeds fans can always dream!!! lol}The very idea of Leeds spending £5m on a player makes me laugh. The idea it would be on Piquionne is priceless.Leeds to make no bid for piquionne and even if we did, 1mil maxWe haven't got that kind of money. plus hes over 30 carnt get in west ham starting 11 , would probably cost around 500,000 but we dont want another barn doorGet real with Bates record he's never splashed the cash!5 mil , really lolDon't be silly, you don't have £5m to spend, let alone on 1 player.Leeds aint got 5 million you idiotsWe trading him for the east stand?

Wolves will interview Ian Holloway over becoming the new manager. And Michael Kightly is set to sign a new 3 year contract with the club.(14)(14)I really hope this is true,but with drybread morgan who knowsSo Ian Holloway...who could be back in the premiership with Blackpool in a few weeks is going to have to go through the indignity of an "interview" with a relegated club that's about to lose most of it's decent players and a fan base thats going to be demanding a return to the prem at the first go......It's just not going to happen.

It's curbishley or some other manager looking to get back into the game.....I dont think most managers with a job would touch this one with a barge pole after the humiliating way the club treated McCarthy


03 May 2012 10:49:51

Expect quick business as he has also targeted Adam Clayton - Leeds. Cody Mcdonald - Coventry. Joe Lewis - Peterborough and Michael Jacobs - Northampton. Released will be Gary Naismith, Gary Roberts and Jamie McCombe. Transfered out will be Alex Smithies -Bolton and Jordan Rhodes - West Ham or Newcastle. It could be a'big' name former international could join the club too as a last season finish to his playing career - rumoured to be Darius Vassell or Emile Heskey!!(1)(20)Uddersfield won't be able to afford any of those players if they are still in league 1 either fees or wages

as Greavsie used to say it's a funny old game.
Stranger things have happened and ref Mcrmack
he did well last season at Swindon,so who Know's Cafc may resign him.
However is doubtful as his future seems secure at Swindon(1)(3)Why would McCormack go back to Charlton they didint play him and didnt want him which is why he signed for us and he has been outstanding for us and got player of the year.

He's not going anywhere.

I dont reackon this will happen, We will need players that will give us 30+ games next season not 3-4 which you probable get from Owen.Bassong for 4 mill when hes contract is up in the summerI am a huge sants fan but we wont sign Owen...he could get much more money elsewhere - probably end up in the US or Qatar or something, also not really sure i would want him...and how can anyone sign him on loan when he is out of contract at the end of this season...who will he be on loan from...think about it!!If Bassong's contract is up in the summer why would he cost £4m?


02 May 2012 23:35:46

Rumours have it that Leicester City are looking at Manchester United defender and starlet Zeki Fryers who's contract finishes in June/July but face competition as Manchester United are looking to renew his contract. But 1st team football could tempt Fryers towards LEicester City as Manchester United cannot offer it as they prefer the older and experienced players.(5)(12)

There are rumorus flying around of a move for Michael Owen to Bolton this Summer. Not sure on the details. It could be a loan move, but apparently it'll only happen if Bolton manage to avoid relegation! Extra incentive to stay up!(4)(9)So it wont happen thenExtra incentive to be relagatedHow will it be a loan deal when his contract is up and Man u won't extend it.Stoke city will send bolton down in a few weeks time

Oxford to sign Thomas Barkhuizen from Blackpool, either on loan or for free depending on what league Blackpool are in.(0)(10)


02 May 2012 22:11:44
Watford could go for Ramon Nunez of Leeds.
Released by Leeds, Watford in need of a winger, could be the one(11)(10)Nah Southampton are signing him.Nunez is only transfer listed and has not been released so you'll have to pay a fee, but please take him. I actually think he could be a good player for you and one we've let get away.... time will tellI can see us regretting this one. With a decent run in a team I think he could be a very good player.He is too lightweight, but he can shoot!He did really well for Scunthorpe when he went out on loan, and thought he looked pretty impressive when he played in the cup.

His form in the league for Leeds wasn't great but I think he would be a great signing if he got a decent run in a team.He wasn't releases. He was just transfer listed.


02 May 2012 21:39:10
The future of Serbian Radosav Petrovic seems to be outside Blackburn. With Rovers very close to relegation, he's been linked with some German and Russian clubs (Mönchengladbach, Hannover, Spartak Moscow), and even a return to his former club Partizan.(7)(2)He's been linked with Saints, haven't you heard?He was awful anyway

Simon Grayson set to raid Leeds for midfielder Adam Clayton who he rates very highly(17)(23)Not much of a suprise! hes been transfer listed by warnockClayton is going only to the premier league. no way he would drop a division when he has a year left on his contractSo huddersfield can afford 15k wagesIf larry brings his old leeds mates in he will lose the fans foreverSouthampton were looking at him.He's more likely to pick up Billy Paynter...So Huddersfield can afford his wages and Leeds can't?Why would he drop down a league. Plus 15k a week wages and a min 1 mill transfer fee.... Barn door Billy maybe more realistic.


02 May 2012 17:13:59
Hi Ed, any Burnley rumours? {Ed003's Note - Just the Jay Rod leaving and Trippier seems to be attracting interest,I'm sure it was Newcastle who had him watched}(5)(2)Jay Rod is going to Charlton {Ed003's Note - very doubtful}So you can read a newpaper Ed :o well done {Ed001's Note - don't be silly, 003 can't read! Rodriguez is likely to leave, there are Premier League clubs interested and he is likely to make the step up. I know Wigan are very interested in a new striker, it is not much of an upheaval for him to make and they have watched him most of the season. So long as they stay up, I would think they are the favourites to sign him, though Villa are extremely interested too.}


02 May 2012 19:03:44
Burnley will use the £5million to attempt to sign Adam Clayton, who has been transfer listed by Neil Warnock. However Claytons wage demands may be too high for the clarets.
Burnley will also go in for George Boyd as a replacement for Keith Tracey who is on his way to Sheffield Wednesday.(10)(12)5mill? You can have barn door Belford for less lmaoGeorge Boyd is going to Charlton, he is a palace fan and wants to move back to South London but palace dont want him, and as a professional he doesnt mind that charlton are palace's rivalsSouthampton already signed him.


02 May 2012 18:57:33
Portsmouth FC likely to go bust in the next week. The club seem to have never learnt that they needed to reduce their wage bill and that has put investors off. Notable players will move to the following clubs:
Ashdown - Bristol City
Norris - Palace
Kitson - Derby
Lawrence - Birmingham
Ward - Ipswich
Rocha - Coventry(27)(6)I think rocha and norris will be staying at portsmouth, if rocha does go then i dont think he would go to coventryRocha and Norris wont be staying, unless they take a huge wage cut.What when pompey got funds till july so know they wont go bust next weekThey have funds till June but have a meeting at the start of the month where the Administrator reports back wether they can carry on, so they are close to going bustSouthampton buying Ashdown, Kitson, Ward and Rocha.Derby will not pay the wages of Dave Kitson unless he lowers his demands significantly.Coventry carnt get anyone in we are in a transfer embargoWhy would Southampton buy four players not even good enough for the Championship?
Is there really such a grouping of "supporters" on the south coast who have no knowledge of football but think they are experts?Sooner the better

Welsh international midfielder Andrew Crofts is likely to leave Norwich as he has fell out ot favour with The Canaries. Southampton, newly promoted to the Premier League, and promotion-playoff challengers Cardiff City have targeted Crofts.(9)(6)I hope we don't lose Andy. Hard worker, young, great workrate, gets stuck in and can also bag a goal. He seems very happy here, I hope he doesn't get forced out.As he was signed for such a ridiculous amount 2 years ago (300k from Brighton), is more likely that they will sell Crofts for any offer over 1.2M...

Kevin doyle set to return to reading in a money plus exchange deal including Adam Le Fondre heading the other way on a loan to a possible permenant. Reading are also interested in Matt Jarvis. Also Wayne Bridge is looking to head to Reading if they can sort out some deal in regards to wages; if not they will opt for Blackburn left back Martin Olson.(11)(20)I agree that Reading might be looking at bringing Doyle back but can't see them letting Le Fondre go to Wolves.

BobbybuffonAbsolutely no chance. Le Fondre is a hero at RFC and will not leave.

Stoke are keen to sign African champion Emmanuel Mayuka from Swiss side Young Boys. The Bernese club was denied a license to play for the next season, which increases the chances of the Zambian striker to join The Potters.(12)(4)He's too small to play for stoke lolCould see him at Stoke personally. Powerful striker who runs the channelsMayuka will not be joining you his mother has just died so will stay ove in africaHe told you he'll be staying in Africa did he?


02 May 2012 18:24:25
West Ham will attempt to sign Matt Jarvis from (relegated) Wolves only if the Hammers earn promotion to the Premier League (via-playoffs).(7)(18)West Ham might well be interested in Jarvis if they go up but the first problem they have is that they will lose to Cardiff and they wouldn't be Jarvis' first choice anyway.

BobbybuffonCardiff are well known for their fails in the promotion-playoffs... West Ham, if they get into the finals, will struggle more against Brum/Blackpool. Anyway, I just hope Jarvis goes to a safe mid-table club at least.

02 May 2012 18:07:42
we do not no how much will be available to spend yet but it will be 14-17 million including new player wages.

we can stop dreaming about rhodes because he was born in and support ipswich.

can expect Tierney to leave and be at arsenal next season and the gunners have also shot listed holt but will have a hard time getting him as we have set a 8 million price tag on him.

we can expect at least one player from forest as lambert has been at many of there games.

also Morrison will leave as had asked for a transfer as is "unsettled".

we will by mohammed abdellaoue as the deal has already been decided and will join for 4.4 million.

Aaron Wilbraham has asked to stay at the club because he is settled in norfolk.

scot doe how plays for league two Dagenham might be one of norwich new possible defenders for next season as we nearly bid for him in January.(3)(14)Tierney won't go to Arsenal, that's nonsense. And maybe Norwich and Hannover have reached an agreement for Moa Abdellaoue, but it's most likely that he won't agree terms with The Canaries.Rhodes was not born in Ipswich, he was born in OldhamYou beat me to it, rhodes born nowhere near ipswich, ppl just come on here and make stuff up, like holt to arsenal..... wtf!Forest don't have any good players you can have chambers money grabbing sod£8 mil for Holt..really. I suppose then that the £10.5 mil that Arsenal paid to sign an established German international and established Bundesliga striker was an absolute bargain!!


02 May 2012 18:05:13

02 May 2012 17:39:40
Southampton are looking into Rayo Vallecano's Michu, who was linked to Man Utd in January.
If this comes off, it'd be a pretty decent transfer IMO(17)(6)Another dreamer lolThere's nothing unbelievable about it. It's in the papersWouldn't say he's a dreamer, he's only going on what skysports have said, so do a little bit of research like he has before making yourself look like an aspHow can he be a dreamer when its in the papers today?!In the sn? prob a load of rubbish then lolIt was in a few papers and sky sports news that Southampton were "looking at him". Generally when it is in a few papers and on sky sports news it tends to be true.

However, "looking at him" is a very ambiguous term, doesn't mean anything whatsoever. He is a great player though, so fingers crossed."how can he be a dreamer when its in the papers today"....Used toilet paper carries more credible stories than the tabloids.Its in the daily echo today 5 mill apparently but cant sign him till June 1st so yea we are deluded ha ha idiotsHe quotes what a paper says and he gets called a dreamer? Dear god its doesnt matter if its actually true or can he be a dreamer?


02 May 2012 17:39:16
Matty Phillips wont leave Blackpool in the summer.(13)(14)He will if Blackpool don't get promotion. Southampton and everton have shown interest already.HE will be going to Swansea in exchange for Dobbie, plus Swansea will pay a fee aswell.No one knows if he will or not so everyone stfu.

He might go. That is all that can be said on the matter now. Stop speculating and making bold statements that have no validity yet.Its a transfer rumour site, people put rumours on here, 99% of them are prbable untrue. If you want to read about football facts then maybe you should start reading the Sun Newspaper.

Easton .Stewart .pods Austin and Wallace every player has a price(13)(5)Where do people make up these rumours. I don't understand the logic behind what you just said. Ye jay rod is likely to leave but with the money coming in for him, we don't need to sell anyone else. Easton and amougou are out of contract, so yes will leave. Marney can leave for me, he doesn't fit the pass and move style that we play

Muhammady(4)(51)Dream on daft ladRubbishIf clark is gonna leave villa he will not go to sunderland he.l go somewhere like man u or arsenal he.s different class.Your having a laugh if you think your getting Ciaran Clark he loves it at Villa he is part of a bunch of youngsters that have been playing together since they were 13-14 and are now all coming through the first team he won't leave Villa and if he wanted to it would cost you 10m and O'Neill never bought him through it was HoullierAs unrealistic as this post is, can you villa fans get a grip. you aren't a big team anymore.
and if he was as good as you say he would be ready to jump ship. if he didn't it would show lack of ambition to stay at a club who really are on the downward spiral.

lack of quality and leadership. you have a couple of decent players and they will be offSince when does Nosworthy play for Sunderland? he signed for Watford in January , if your gonna post on here at least get your facts right and write the truth.Nosworthy is on loan at WatfordOh you mean ambitious like when we nicked your best player for 24 million and you still hav.nt got over it. Trust me mate when villa get a decent manager they will be fighting for europe again.Someone has been playing too much Champ Manager.You lot are idiots you aint got the money for starters

Brett Williams is also free to leave with Northampton keen to keep him after a successful loan. Swindon Town are also interested.

Reading have agreed a fee for Watford defender Mariappa. This is apparently very close to being tied up.

Brian McDermott wants 5 new signings this summer, 3 of which before pre-season begins.source about interest by swindon in williams?(9)(4)I was reading the Reading FC site earlier - I don't think Bignall was released as he was suffering from a knee injury. I think that's what it said anyway.

Bit of news from Stoke last night

The Potters are interested in Villa's Warnock who they enquired about in the Jan window.

Jarvis will join in June and another Wolves player is interesting the Potters.

Kenwyne Jones will leave in the Summer with 3 Prem clubs and a Spanish club interested.

Highly rated Florent Cuvelier is wanted on loan by Swindon but Stoke feel he can play at a higher lever. Watford rumoured to be interested in a loan.

Stoke have had talks with Jermaine Pennant and he may even feature at the weekend but no decision will be made until after his court hearing.

Nico Kranjcar a player who Pulis had at Pompey is a 4 million pound target.

Still no news on Robert Huth.

Rory Delap is to take his coaching badges under the guidance of Pulis and Kemp and has expressed his desire to one day coach Carlisle Utd

(idiots who prattle on about long ball/Krancjar won't join a rugby team etc need not apply)(9)(6)Truth hurts doesn't it, all together now HOOF!!!Pulis didnt have kranjcar at pompey redknapp didDoesn't hurt at all- just think it's funny that these fans of teams who can't be Stoke spend so much time complaining about you :-)Pulis tried to loan Kranjcar from Pompey he wasn't there when he played and tried to sign him when Spurs did. I seen some fool did biteThe Rory Delap school of football:
1) If you can kick it then HOOF it as far as possible.
2) If you can't kick the ball kick the man.
3) Learn to throw better than you can kick a ball.....A couple of Spurs players interesting Stoke apparently.

Could see Delap as a good coach. He has 500 odd top class appearances and a great ambassador for the game with his off the field work. Been a great player and well respected.

Randy Lerner to spend as he want to re-shape the team.


Bent to liverpool - £15m
Given to Tott - £3m
fabian delph to Reading - £2.5m
Heskey surprise target for wigan - Free
n'zogbia (does not wish to play for villa no more)
to southampton - £6m

McGregor from Rangers - £3m
Weather from Bolton - £2m
Olson from Blackburn - £3.5m
Sidwell from Fulham - Free
Moses from Wigan - £7m
Rodriguez from Burnley £3m
Hooper from Celtic - £2.5m(2)(40)Moses has come out and said that he isnt ready to leave Wigan yet and will be signing a new deal once everything is clear that Martinez is staying and not going to West Brom or Villa, so that aint true... and just because Heskey used to play for us under Bruce does not mean we want him back.No chance will N'Zogbia join Saints. players have said whoever joins needs to fit in with squad morale and hes a miserable sod.You are mentalHooper 2.5,your at it numbskullSidwell why would we sign Sidwell again he was awfulJ-Rod's won't go for anything less than £4.5+ Celtic rejected a £6 million bid for Southampton so there's no chance he'll go for £2.5mWeather from bolton? and 15m for bent
really?The price for the ins, is that the deposits ?I think Villa will lose a few players this summer but can forget about replacing them with big names anymore, unfortunately for Villa days of them being top 6 are just a distant memory, I think they'll survive just but it'll be another season battling relegation. But the prices listed for the players coming in are ridiculous.

BobbybuffonIs this a joke? Someone has their valuation of players way off. Get your head out your asp mate.

I've worked out a key for deciphering your values for you: halve the values of Villa players you have put and double the value of the players your are proposing to bring in.Do you even watch football?! hooper is valued at least £7M. stop posting bullshtYou don't want the weather from Bolton, it rains a lot here

The most shocking being Adam Clayton being transfer listed.
Released players are: Alex Bruce, Lloyd Sam, Mikael Forsell, Danny Webber and Maik Taylor
Transfer Listed: Adam Clayton, Ramon Nunez, Billy Paynter, defenders Paul Connolly and Andy O'Brien, and goalkeeper Paul Rachubka.(19)(1)Ramon runez will be snapped up by crystal palaceWest Ham now interested in Adam ClaytonI hear Clayton was the mystery player who requested 15k a week wages; which Bates dubbed 'ridiculous at this level.' For someone with his ability Mr. Bates, and with respect, I dont think it is. The lad is every bit as good as Kaspar Schmeichel and he was on 16k a week, and oh yeah, he's a GOALKEEPER.

Celtic interested in jordan rhodes and matty phillips...scouts have been watchin these players for a while now.(19)(17)Would not be able to afford. Never mindI said back in January that Jordan Rhodes would be at Celtic in the summer.

Celtic and Huddersfield have already held talks which would involve young Celtic players and fringe players being made available to Huddersfield ! Plus a fee of course!

Watch this space!Rhodes would cost 3 mill and phillips the same and celtics selling ki for 6 mill so
celtic can affoed itGood call rhodes is good strikerThey'll both want prem football after grafting in the champ/league 1 and with prem clubs interested. No offence Celtic but Scottish football doesn't interest top players.Joe ledley? Gary Hooper?It shows that is SPL is a low standard when they want to buy players from league one and the championship3 million for rhodes time to wake up they rejected 5,5 in jan from west ham dream on

Reading are understood to have put Aiyigbeni Yakubu at the top of their summer shopping list - ahead of former favourite Kevin Doyle. SOURCE-clubcall-setanasports(website) and sky(9)(8)Yakubu is agood signing but we already have a similar player in jason roberts but he is getting old so a good signing i think

George Thorne of West Brom to join Portsmouth on a season long loan(10)(11)Why would he drop to league 1 when he's getting games in the premThe thing is though he isnt getting any games at the moment, he injured himself whilst on loan at Portsmouth, hence his return to wba


02 May 2012 13:00:55
Reading are understood to have put Aiyigbeni Yakubu at the top of their summer shopping list - ahead of former favourite Kevin Doyle.(19)(12)Why would they go for a lazy selfish player who doesnt even get back back and because of this Leicester didnt go back for him.
Doyle is a much better option

Liverpool are in a fight with 15 other clubs to sign Dutch strike ace Luuk de Jong, who has hit 30 goals in 46 games for Steve McClaren's FC Twente this season.

Liverpool are also ready to take another look at AZ Alkmaar midfielder Rasmus Elm, as the Reds consider launching a £7million offer for the 24-year-old(12)(11)Who are the 15 clubs? like u didnt jst make a number up and thought u would put it in lolI think De Jong will choose to go to a big team, rather than Liverpool

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is planning a summer spending spree in an attempt to stop his neighbours from ruling the roost in Manchester, and could make a shock bid to lure Barcelona's Gerard Pique back to Old Trafford(8)(31)If your going to make things up, at least try and make it slightly believableLike he would leave the best team in the world and his home city for man united who are on a down hill slidePiques defensive style doesnt work nearly as well in the premier league as in la liga. better signing would be vertonghen or alderwiereld


02 May 2012 12:02:22
Northampton will be securing the services of 2 ex players and a host of serious signings to push for promotion next season.

Gábor Gyepes is keen to get back into regular football and with Clark Carslile looking to sign permanently the two will make up the cobblers central defence next year.

Another former cobbler, Danny Jackman will be returning to the club (Confirmed by source close to Jackman)

Boothroyd will also be looking to secure the services of Danny Webber, Nicky Ajose as well as players from Leeds, Chesterfield, Darlington and rivals Peterborough.

Fees will be paid for at least 2 players in the summer transfer window.(13)(12)

Leicester have made a £5 million summer bid for Reading winger Jimmy Kebe.(8)(37)Premiership or Championship hmmmm. Hes just signed a new contract and we dont need your money. Enjoy championship football as you will be there for many more years.Ha! you kidding arnt you?! Why would he want to follow Matt Mills and failWhy would he go to leicester when he will be playing in the premier league next seasonUtter toshSo hes finally got to play in the premiership but wants to go to the champtionship?...not a chance ...why would Jimmy Kebe want to go down a division and most likely stay there in a team of underachievers ?West Ham intrested in signing Jimmy Kebe2 things wrong with that 1) Kebe is part of Readings plans and b) Leicester are going to struggle to comply with new Financial rules which they voted against.
More likely players out of LeicesterDont know what every1 is on about he only said they have bidded for him and he hasnt said hes actually going. u all need to remember this is rumours instead of moaning all the timeWell saidLets face it, even Barcelona are interested in Kebe. He is God.Kebe is better than LeicesterHe's Jimmy Kebe, He Does What He Wants


02 May 2012 07:15:30

02 May 2012 11:28:00
Joe Lewis not interested in coming to
Brighton although he's good friends with
CMS. Apparently he's being hawked by
premier teams to work as an understudy.
Especially QPR, Southampton,Wigan
and 'Yes' (and my eyes roll) Norwich.
Norwich is seen to be his 1st choice
as it is the closest from Ptrbrgh where
him and his family can settle easily.(6)(17)Norwich would likely be his first choice seeing as he is a local lad from our academy from where he moved to P'boro. However i do not think that we are interested in him. We have a quality, ever improving keeper in John Ruddy and 2 England international young keepers in Declan Rudd and Jedd Steer. No room for Joe to come back im afraid.He started off at Norwich so I could see hime going there to be fair.Norwich have some good goalies, no need for LewisWhat academy?Closest is Ipswich, get on the phone Joe and chat with PJ, and get regular games, not bench warmingThe academy which, up until now, has been seriously hampered by having the smallest catchment area in turns of population of any professional club in the country. Now we have category 1 status under the new rules we can attract youngsters from further afield and hopefully produce a higher calibre of player than before. Even so we have had a few players progress into the squad over recent years, although Rob Green and Bellamy are the only players who have gone onto better things. Heres hoping the future is brighter!

There's strong interest from BHAFC to
sign a number of players from Peterborough
but only one or two names will fit
the bill and poyet's vision of football
at the amex. Suprisingly enough
inside information tells me it's
Paul Taylor. Apparently Poyet has been
impressed on a number of his performances
and believes he can turn him into a
real marksman at a cost that both
Tony Bloom and Gus will be pleased with.
£400-500k(2)(9)Lol you are so wrong. He's already signed for a Prem side! Oh and by the way the price is 3 mill plus adonsWhy are all these deluded 'boro fans so convinced that Taylor will go to the PL, and for millions?

His strike rate in the Championship was very average. 500K is generous.Why do all Boro fans think they're players are worth millions each?

Where did they finish this season?


02 May 2012 11:12:31
Stoke will sign Zaha , Hoilett and defo in the summer(6)(22)Haha ye ok then, Hoilett will have the liikes of Tottenham, Everton, Liverpool and Newcastle after so you have got no chance, and Defoe is a no go because IF and its a big if he will be sold once again there will be bigger teams after him, Zaha is possible, but are you gonna drop Ethrington who in my eyes is your best playerEthrington stokes best player? u havnt seen him play this season i take it lolI enjoy a good joke, just as much as the next man, but stokeEtherington has been real poor and Pulis is ready to sign Jarvis.

Stoke will not go for Hoilett although Rudge has watched him several times and Zaha also.

Hoilett looks nailed on to join SpursWhy would any of those players want to join a Rugby team for?


02 May 2012 10:26:15
Reading Football Club are in advanced
talks with Leed United over a £2.5m
move for 25 year old prolific
goalscorer Ross McCormack. The £2.5m
fee will have significant add ons
depending on goals and appearances
and could stretch up to £4.5m by the
end of next season. Leed United have
also been given the option of a part
exchange and will have the pick of
Sean Morrison, Jay Tabb or Karl
Sheppard to add to their promotion
pushing sqaud for next season.(16)(27)£2.5m....yes please. OK, he scored 19 goals, the facts are, the chances he missed, he should have had 30.As a leeds fan i would snap any clubs hand off for 2.5 million for rossco. hes good, but one dimensional most of the time and not fast enough for my liking.He has the ability, good finisher, great dribbler, and has a strong free kick to boot. However 2.5 million would be enough for us to bring in a few players to aid the war chest at Warnocks disposal this year. But we don't want any of that carp offered a p/e.Not a premier league player - we dont want him!!Obviously from a Reading fan who has seen he's scored a few goals and decided to link their club with him. Do some research and you'll see he's not that great. Definitely not prem.You dont know what your talking about selling your top goal scorer is madness 25 goals in a carp side


02 May 2012 09:34:02
Fasten your seatbelts Rangers fans the hard times are just about to get harder. With Bill Miller now being the approved buyer and with his plans of a new co, all sell able assets will be sold, starting with any players who are worth any monies!

A. McGregor & S. Naismith to WBA for £4.6m

M. Edu to Montpellier for £800k

Whitakker to Nowrich for £500k.

All other Gers players will not have a sell on value and potentiall might move with the New Co to Div 3. Duph & Phelps to realease the news in press conference booked for 2.30pm today!(14)(12)May be wrong but doesn't the transfer embargo prevent players leaving or is it only incoming signings that are suspended? {Ed001's Note - incoming only.}This post is defo posted by a dreaming celtic fanThey wont go for them pricesHehehe rangers are doomed, sure yous can all be celtic fans & see what its like supporting a true historical global football clubDivision 3 newco ? Bill miller has been given assurances by the SFA and SPL that rangers will stay in the SPL next season ... Thats why his bid was unconditional, so stop dreamin'

Southampton are looking to bring joe cole back to the premier league as long as he agrees to a pay cut, and have also shown interest in Blackpool winger matt phillips(11)(18)Dreaming again lolLol saints fans in dream land there bottom of the premship pecking orderCole, Phillips and Palacios on another post.

Have a day in the real worldCole has spoken with a french newspaper saying he hopes to stay in franceHe will only stay in France if Lille pay The 5m asking price which they are not prepared to do. Liverpool want a fee and Southampton have the money seeing as the liebherr family are worth in excess of 4 billion poundsNot a hope in hell

Reading have released:

Brian Howard
Andy Griffin
Nicholas Bignall
Cedric Baseya
Ethan Gage

Brett Williams is also free to leave with Northampton keen to keep him after a successful loan. Swindon Town are also interested.

Reading have agreed a fee for Watford defender Mariappa. This is apparently very close to being tied up.

Brian McDermott wants 5 new signings this summer, 3 of which before pre-season begins.(15)(10)I cant believe Swindon are interested in a so called striker who has scored about 3 goals in 60 plus games.Mariappa is a perfect fit in the royals' back line


02 May 2012 09:27:20
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson to target Millwalls £1m rated winger James Henry in his bid to increase Leicester City's threat from wide areas.(14)(12)Cue the abuse us Ipswich fans got when we put an offe rin last summer from the Millwall massive.He's worth a million to Leicester but might go for half a million to anyone else.

02 May 2012 08:10:12
Yeovil Town have been linked with 3 goalkeepers as Gary Johnson aims to sign a permanent keeper so the club dont rely on loans.

Chris Weale: 30 year old Ex-Yeovil player, currently at Leicester. Played a total of 162 games for Yeovil with a further 10 on loan from Bristol City. Weale scored a header for Yeovil whilst on loan from Bristol.

David James: 41 year old former England keeper, recently released by Bristol City after 81 appearances for the club. Would be a massive signing for Yeovil but would only be short term.

Jamie Ashdown: 31 year old Porstmouth keeper who is out of contract at the troubled club. Ashdown has played 123 games for Portsmouth in 8 years at the south coast club and is regarded as a fine shot stopper.(8)(11)


02 May 2012 07:01:35
Oldham keeper Alex Cisak set to sign in Championship for next season. Charlton, Sheff utd, Barsley, Burnley, Ipswich, Peterborough, Watford, all very keen on the lad and set to make bids for the highly rated Australian international.(11)(9)Warnock wants Matt Connolly from QPR.

Reading have tabled a £900k bid after a successful loan.Sheffield united, got to go up through play offs yet."Sheffield united, got to go up through play offs yet." Still one game to go, who knows!
