Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Newcastle will not go down! I can promise everyone that. Newcastle will not sign anyone until the sale of the club has gone through.
If sold before January Newcastle are reportedly interested in Dean Ashton (provided he can stay fit).
Dunno name but another striker, an attacking midfielder, left back as cover.
Possible outs in the summer are:
Harper–as loyalty to let him play first team football
Possibly Owen depending on a takeover and contract discussions with new owners
  Ronaldo will sign in January to boost West Hams strikeforce.
Persistant injuries to Bellamy and Ashton means that Zola is looking at Free transfers to bolster his front line.

Aston Villa to bid for Carlton Cole in January, Also expect Wigan to bid as a replacement for Heskey (Who will be off– Villa Liverpool Newcastle and Spurs will be battling it out–

But also expect a shock bid from Arsenal who wish to add some more experienced english players to the squad
  Look, now that Sammy Lee is at Anfield you can be sure that Rafa will expect his advice, Sammy will be letting Rafa know that Dossena, Deggan are not achieving the standard Liverpool expected, I cant understand whats going on with the european scouting network. Rafhina is even worse than these two in my opinion and even Josemi is better which is saying something. Theres no more wasting of £5million here. The next full backs need to be of a pedigree calibre, tried and tested. In other words forget about Rafhina. There will only ever be one Rafa in this town.

Blackburn rovers could be in the hands of an american, an unknown business man, has been in talks with Rothchilds, the walker family's middle man about a takeover, the walkers have stated they will not budge from thier 45 million pound asking price for the club.

Phil Scolari will sign his 15 year old nephew, Alexio Indegez Rodrigo Scolari, he currently Plays for Flamengo, a fee of 3 million is thought to be compensation needed.

Blackburn Rovers will go all South American this January with Ince Bringing in

Christian Benitez: 3.5 Million
Breno: 6 million
Sergio Mota: 6 million

Newcastle Joe Kinnear has handed in a list on transfers just in case he stays on longer,

Craig Mackal–Smith
Micheal Kightly
Scott Sinclair
Neal Eardley
And Andre Bikay are names on the list

Rafeal Nadel has Revealed he was turned down by Leeds United F.C in 1999, which spurred him to give up his boy hood dream of being a footballer and start his Tennis Career.

Bejamin Huggel is a wanted man in london, both Fulham and West Ham want the 2.5 million pound rated defensive midfielder.

Arshavin has finally rejected a move to tottenham in the summer, he stated that he can how hard Roman Pavalychenko has had to change his style of Football and stated that Roman is struggling to Adapt, but feels Chelsea Owner Roman Ambamovic has helped Roman Alot since he joined.
  To the guy who said that Everton have strikers who can put the ball in the back of the net consistently, can I ask who he's referring to? Vaughan? No (can't recall the last time he scored)
Anichebe? No
Saha? Isn't that French for injury prone.Fair enough the guy may grab a goal if he's fit but what's the likelihood of Saha being fit for an entire season?

The way I see it, Yakubu is the on player at Everton who can find the net on a consistent basis and that's why they need someone like Lisandro Lopez or Niang who can find the net. I wouldn't be expecting one of Vaughan or Anichebe to be still at Everton once another striker is bought.

  To 'Football's no1 fan'>>
no we don't know Chelsea are gonna win the league. .Arsenal will not be selling so many stars even if they cant land a trophy this season. United will sign players and will keep Ronaldo as well. Liverpool will continuously be linking to a take over but will never be taken over. and they will get the boots of Sergio Aguero. and Newcastle will stay in the league too.
  Rafa benitez will bring in players in january that he thinks will win them the league!!!!

Bale– 10 million – Tottenham
Rafinha– 7 million – Schalke
'Kuba' – 8 million– Dortmund
Valencia 10 million Wigan
Lavezzi – 10 million Napoli

But these transfers will be funded by the following

Dossena 6 million Lazio
Arbeloa – 5 million Sevilla
Pennant– 7 million Blackburn
Benayoun – 7million Roma
Alonso 15 million Valencia

The yanks will throw in 5 million to even things up and N'Gog and Plessis will be sent back to france on loan to play for Monaco

Big winter ahead of Liverpool
Title 19 here we come
  Lovenkrands and gattuso have bought houses in glasgow expect to see them in january at ibrox. Lovenkrands can sign a bosman in the summer and rino,s wife wants to come home.
Hemdani, JCD, Burke, and Adam out.

  Word at the Valley Alan Pardew is set to be sacked as manager of Charlton and Alan Curbishly is set for a return to the valley. on match of the day 2 the other he avoided the question on whether he would return to charlton. i also know an U17 player there and he said he saw his car the other day. this would be fantastic for addicks fans and I for one is all for it!!!!
  To the guy that said Everton do not need a midfielder but a guy that can put the ball in the net consistently; Everton have an abundance of strikers, all of whom can put the ball in the net consistently given decent service.

Now for the rumours:

The budget at Goodison for January is £25m, give or take Due to general dithering in the summer, Moyes has £15m left from that period. The Everton chairman has promised a further £10m or so on top of that.

1. Fletcher (Man Utd) £7m
2. Downing (Middlesboro) £10m
3. Love (Moscow) £9m
4. Walcott (Arsenal) loan deal

This is a genuine list that Moyes has given his chairman. I would personally strike Walcott from it, as Wenger is unlikely to allow his young superstar to leave on loan when it is clear that Arsenal need all men on deck. But that probably won't matter to Moyes who will no doubt spend the whole transfer window trying to lure Wenger into releasing his prize asset, only for it to dawn on Moyes with 3 hours to go until the window closes, that Wenger meant what he said.
  18 year old leeds midfielder Fabian Delph will sign for arsenal in january for a fee in the region of £6 million, but will stay at leeds on loan for the rest of the seaso

In The Know

Deal to be completed by the end of the year, the new owners are from Dubai deal/price depend on

1.the Blades compo one price if they have to pay/one price if they dont(which is more likey)
2.BG needing to clare up some banking issues in Icland

This won't be a Man City or Chelsea type take over with millions being thrown around,

Tony Cottee not involved !
South african not involved !
  –––––––––––––––––––––AFC NEWS–––––––––––––––––––––
Barcelona have told Cesc Febragas that if he states that he would say yes then they will bid for him at the end of the season. He will not leave mid season in January but come the end of the season he is willing to consider this as there is genuine concerne that Arsenal will not be in the Champions League next season.

–––––––––––––––––––––LFC NEWS–––––––––––––––––––––
Liverpool are ready to make an offer for Scheinstieger in January as they would be able to pick him up for 1 or 2 million instead of getting involved in the battle with all of Europes top clubs at the end of the season.
  Can i clear up a comment posted earlier, Tony Cottee is not in anyway attached to a consortium take over bid of west ham utd. the current owners are not yet selling the club as west ham are still in a position of income covers debt. In the same breath there is speculation that there is contact with a south african buisnessman with a large interest with south african airways. rumour or true i don't know but it looks as if the dust is settling in east london for now. west ham january transfer. IN. Fereira(che),. n'zogbia(new). . OUT. quasie, davenport, faubert, spector, ashton,. THE MOLE
  Viduka contract is to be cancelled with the loss of 1mil give or take a couple of bob. Martins is going to stay, Owen still may go as the new contract he has been working with has reached its limit ie he wants more cash and there isnt going to be any. Ismael Miller of WBA maybe a surprise target along with some experience to steady the boat as it struggles up stream. Taylor may also be cashed in on, he maybe part of a deal that will see Yobo/Lescott move north. Not these Everton players may also be in package regarding Owen. Kinnear would also like to bring in another Argentine with Getafes Daniel Díaz and Munichs Martín Demichelis with Xisco going out on loan for the former. James Beatty could also be heading to SJP, he and Zigic have been highlighted to bring in as a targetman.
These are all possible targets if the club is NOT sold by Xmas.
  My uncles friends brother works at hull fc and he has told me that they will make a cheeky attempt to sign ronaldo ( the chubby one) on a free transfer in january. Geovanni has talked to ronaldo and he "apparently" said he would go to hull if manchester city don't make an attempt to sign him.Weather you believe me or not This will happen if city don't offer him a contract.
  Kevin davies is coming to play for sheffield united this january on loan With a view to a permanent move in the summer this has been telled by 1 one of kevin davies good friends. this is because he is currently unhappy at the reebok with gary megson
  Heard from a friend who has seen on the net that Aston Villa might just nip in to pinch David Beckham in January. As a Villa fan, iv not got my hopes for that. Lets not get carried away!!
  Liverpool FC will not spend big in the summer. Lets face it, big moves rarely happen in Jan. Rafinha is still a target to strengthen the right back position as Deggen isn't showing any quality even when he's fit. There may also be a bid for a goalscorer. Zaki is now on the radar of many big clubs but Rafa won't pay over the odds, as usual. Heskey is a realistic option but he may price himself out of a move and may not be ebough of an out and out striker for the type the squad needs. Also look out for Shweinsteiger on the cheap.
  Arsene wenger is set to sign joleon lescott from everton as he's unsettled this means that Gallas will leave in the summer.
  Roy Keane hadn't planned on spending too much during the January transfer window but with the recent result against Chelsea he is now interested in signing Darrent Bent (Tottenham) and Joleon Lescott (Everton)
  Crystal Palace want to snatch Leroy Lita from under Norwich City's noses in January but will not sell Watson as they will do a separate deal with Reading. Also Scott Sinclair could join in January
  Sadly, as a big Arsenal fan, I am fearing the worst. To me, it looks like another season that we don't win anything and will be lucky to finish fourth. I am fearing the end of the Wenger era and I think some key players will go. I think that Adebayor may go, as he hasn't proved he is a top striker this season. Fabregas may go, but I think he will keep faith in the team for at least another year, as will Toure, Clichy and Walcott. Hopefully a few players will leave, Djourou, Senderos (for good!), and maybe Denilson or someone. Then I think that many new players will be bought, as we will need, a top class striker that will score at almost every attempt,
Aguero/ Benzema, if possible
Maybe Kevin Doyle?
and maybe Benjani, as he won't get much playing time at Man City because of Robinho etc
and some young South American striker for the future.
A good tough centre Midfielder:
Diara Real Madrid
Miguel Veloso or Jao Moutinho
Yaya Toure
David Wheater?
A good attacking Midfielder to support Fabregas
David Silva
And a good centre–back
Maybe Kompany if we could get him off Man City
And some youngsters for the future

I fear there are bad days for Arsenal
  Celtic – Heard a wee whisper that the injuries to Samaras and JVoH, although not career threatening, are causing concern in the time that they could take to regain 100% fitness. With this in mind WGS has made tentative moves to see if the King of Kings (Henke Larsson to all you heathens) would consider a short term deal in January. Initial response is 20–80 against but euro involvment (even in uefa cup) may sway him to make a dramatic return. Also heard that Silvinho of Barcelona is on his way in similar deal.
  Chelsea for the title !
they are by far the best and have a hit list for january including huntelaar and schweinstiger!
Also as a neutral i hope Hull keep up their top form and Newcastle and Stoke stay in the premiership!
cmon you blues
  Will be interesting to see who City go for come Jan. I fully expect bids for Santa Cruz, Villa, Aguero, Lahm and other high–profile stars. Likely to get Santa Cruz after what he said about joining them. Personally I see Benjani going the other way too. Kompany has been good this season in parts but I expect a bid for a top end DM, Bids will probably be lodged for Veloso and Diarra. To guess Id see city adding Cruz, Diarra, Veloso and a decent left back.
