West BromIs he off to Cardiff?West Ham are interested, Reading have rejected bids from them and Leicester.Cardiff was supposed to be a done deal but I really can't see how we can afford his wages and his fee.

Hull City Targets:

Billy Sharp or Jutkiewicz - 3m
Vito Mannoane - Loan (Done Deal)
Robbie Brady - Loan (Done deal)
Joshua King - 800k

This is from an Accurate source and if anyone says how can we afford it we are one of the richest championship sides there is(2)(10)If thats the case that your one of the richest, why did Barmby come out and say he may resign if he didnt get any money. I thought money wasnt a problemAnd why was it pearsons first job as manger to cut the wage bill by half spent all season trying to push bullard out why was most of the team last season loan signings.Hull City are not in for Billy Sharp or Jutkiewicz and Josh King is a loan deal. Barmby didn't say anything about leaving, in fact just today he's confirmed that he's switching his role from caretaker to permanent manager this weekend.


05 Jan 2012 23:13:24
Redknapp is ready to sell Vedran Corluka to West Ham in a £1.5million deal - to start raising the funds he needs for signings - Daily Mirror(9)(10)Aint going to happen said hr i believe that is due to the fact west ham knocked them back in regards to james tomkins joe jordan has been seen at upton park a few times on scouting missions

Ally McCoist has lined up Liam Kelly of Kilmarnock as a replacement for Edu. Bid of £500k plus will be needed.(5)(3)500,000 grand for liam kelly hmm dont think soRangers had to get Aluko to pay his own fee to Aberdeen. Rangers have no money! Which is nice.Noooo , we didnt get him to , he payed it off his own backAluko paid it off his own back because rangers wouldn't and he wanted to play football again hence the reason he was still without a club till nearly xmas, no club were willing to pay any development compensation.


05 Jan 2012 23:02:07
Reading won't sign anyone until they sell someone for big $BUCKS$!(6)(3)

Kebe has been offered a new contract but doesn't look like he will take it because it is the same contract as the one he turned down in the summer.(4)(3)


05 Jan 2012 22:52:48
Chamberlain coming back to Southampton on a loan till then end of the season(5)(14)Where have u heard this?This would be awsome but please where have you got this from?I very doubt this, Wenger will be starting him alot more than starting walcott who has been shocking recently.Just because he was down visiting his hometown and friends doesn't mean he's gunna be coming back to us! Wish he did though, we need a RM.Can't see Wenger starting him more. I'm not saying he shouldn't, as when he has played, he has been top class. I know Wenger trusts his youngsters, but doesn't seem to be starting Chamberlain, and is rarely on the bench.


05 Jan 2012 21:51:04
I would love to see a swap deal along these lines 'cos Cahill is way ahead of Evans (who seems to average 1 major cock up per game) but dont know if Coyle would be foolish enough to fall for it and I certainly wouldnt be happy to see Cahill on any more than £70k. Who does he think he is, untested as the top level after all. He would be used in rotation or as backup (long term) for us probably. But at £7m, less the value of Evans; would be worth testing the waters at least(3)(2)Was Evans playing in games against Blackburn and Newcastle. Don't think so. Lay off - on last two games showing Evans better than Rio and Jones AND CahillHa ! Lay off? Evans is a terrible footballer, constant mistakes but a great player for a mid-table club....wba/villa


05 Jan 2012 22:17:44
I think right back Nathaniel clyne would be a good buy. He's only young we need a right back and I believe we have a little interest in him. With our fantastic training staff he could be a favourite.(5)(1)What team r u talking about, Newcastle? would be great hereFor southamptonThis is by the writer of this clyne for southampton pleaseNo chance, he turned down Wolves not long ago, for him it's Palace or an established Prem sideWould love him at Saints, but I doubt he'd join, he's going to a top club, Newcastle would be a good fit, with their injuries etcBut are there any sources to back it up


05 Jan 2012 22:10:30
Bristol City are set to sign:

Coventry striker Lukas Jutkiewicz
Lee Novak from Huddersfield
Owen Hargreaves on loan from United
Croatian target-man Hans Ovmadic from Slavia Prague(1)(21)Might be hard signing Hargreaves from United when he is at CityHargreaves is at City.llHargreaves is a city player at least get the team rightHargreaves is playing for City
Jutkiewicz will join a big clubOnly in a swap deal for maynard? Novak aint going anywhere.In all honesty Novak will move no where , he love Huddersfield and all of the staff, will take one hell of good bid to 'woo' him away from the terriers UTTTotaly agree mate. Novak will only go to the championship........with town.thank you very much.Champagne Super Novak is staying put, the lad is class.Seen alot of rumours about hargreaves going out on loan. does nobody remember mancini saying that he was brought in to cover toure while he was away for the african cup of nations


05 Jan 2012 22:07:05
Big clear out at The County Ground, with Di Canio's foreign flops leaving and the kids going on loan.

Risser - Bath City
Cibocchi - Newport County
Magera - Fleetwood Town (swap for Jamie Vardy plus cash)
Lanzano - Staines Town
Kerrouche - Bristol Rovers
Bodin - Torquay United permanent
Storey - Chippenham (loan)
Thompson - Wycombe(3)(9)Vardy? Hah! Dream on Swindon, he's off to Huddersfield as Rhodes' replacement.

Maybe you'll get Ross Allen in - heard he's one that PDC wants and Leon Clarke is Chesterfield bound and Benyon is staying at Wycombe.

Rest sound about right - Magera is off to a BSP club. Thompson will stay until the summer and the kids will be loaned out to get experience.

Esajas moving to Northampton, Gabilondo to Forest Green.Clarke went charlton days ago!And Benyon has gone to Safend....also, confirmed days ago.....Keep up do you really know whats going on as Clarke has gone to Charlton last week and Benyon to Southend. Someone else on here who talks nonsense.

Total rubbish what you have printed.You fool, vardy turned down west ham last week and said he wants to see out season at fleetwood why on earth would he go to huddesfield when big clubs are in for him.Well said above at least someone talking sense.


05 Jan 2012 22:06:05
Top 8's Top Targets :

Man City - Daniele De Rossi (£21.5m)
Man Utd - Wesley Sneijder (£26m)
Spurs - Christopher Samba (£9m)
Chelsea - Gary Cahill (£7m)
Arsenal - Steven N'Zonzi (£?)
Liverpool - Stephane Sessegnon (£11m)
Newcastle - Mapou Yanga M-Biwa (£?)
Stoke - Junior Hoilett (£7.5m)(11)(15)Gary cahill man utd (10m)Bolton already accepted 7m so why would utd pay 10mRumoured sneijder will be offered as part of the deal for TevezWhy does everyone guess football manager fees for every player, there is no way you would know how much teams are interested in players for apart from the obvious gary cahill 7m which has been on the news for over a week now.


05 Jan 2012 22:01:51
Barcelona have apparently approached the two young boys Sam Monjack and Charlie Colkett from Chelsea.(6)(8)Saw Monjack at the airport with huge luggage and a tan _ big smile on his face and a big watch!. Plane had just come in from Barca........ must be true.


05 Jan 2012 21:29:36
Celtic to offer 5,500,000 pounds for in form Jordan Rhodes from Huddersfield(7)(25)They dont have anything like that kind of money, especially not to spend on one player.No they wont! they are brasik!Erm he may play for scotland but he is from yorkshire so even he know thats not enough!!Rhodes is an amazing player, worth every penny :-)Times it by 10 and you may get close. on recent form his record makes torres look like a sunday league player.Torres is playing like a sunday league player so it's really not hard. Rhodes is a great player needs to up his game maybe?At end of day he is L1 player and will go for nothing like 5mill,get off football manager.I don't think Rhodes will go anywhere in Jan but Chamberlain was a league 1 player and went for 12/15M.Contrary to the p[ervious post Celtic are very far from "brassik", that is Rangers claim to fame. If NL thought that Jordan Rhodes was worth 5million then the board would back him especially this year as they want to ensure they win the lot. Celtic have money to spend, how much, nobody knows but NL has bought very wisely in the last 18months so have no doubt he will do so again. Rhodes is a good player and will score goals wherever he goes, hopefully it is at Celtic.Said they were after vardy doubt it though.Celtic have the money to spend if its the right player, theyve shown that over the last 18 months, theyve sold plenty of players the last couple years including the big money transfer of mcgeady. as a hearts fan id hate too see rhodes in a celtic shirt he is a great young player who will score bags of goals


05 Jan 2012 21:00:07
is there any rumours on chelsea in or out yet?(6)(9)Hulk, krasic, cavani, n'zonzi, cahill, kakaCheck your club pageTalks of signing Edinson Cavani from Napoli, Steven N'Zonzi from Blackburn and Milos Krasic from Juventus. Obviously talk of Hulk from Porto, but the price tag makes the deal sound unlikely. Gary Cahill deal is still on hold due to his wage demandsDon't see why people are disagreeing with the posts above? He asked rumours, not for definite signings etc. These are the rumours.


05 Jan 2012 20:38:21
I know for a fact that Leicester have bid for all these players !!

Billy Sharp - Doncaster £3 million
Emile Heskey - Aston Villa around £1.8 million
Cameron Stewart - Hull £3.5 million
Jimmy Kebe - Reading £1.5 million
James Chester - Hull £3 million

Whether he gets them all is another thing, but Pearson means business!(7)(12)I am not in the no but yes i believe these players will be on pearsons shopping list! would love to see all of them at Leicester.So did Sven didn't heAll Pearson type signings, bar Heskey. Signing him would just make you a laughing stock.Hull city wouldnt sell mr pearson a cup of tea never mind their best playersThe feeling hull have towards pearson would easily increase any price for a player up by at least 3m


05 Jan 2012 20:44:42
Junior Hoillet set to sign for stoke. Pulis wants samba too. But the snag is the price. Stoke have offered 15million for the rovers duo.
Stoke also want diame, the funds will also be there to purchase demba BA for 12m.(6)(19)Well Stoke must be saveing some money as they must of sacked there medical staff ,when they could of got BA for a free ,now 5 month later they ready to spend 12 mill on himYeah right! Demba Ba going to leave a massive club, to go to a club who ruled him to have a serious injury, manager showed no faith in him, otherwise he would of signed him! and everyone knows Stoke are a small club who play the game the wrong way!!! --Byron the brummie...Play the game wrong? even though were 8th in the league, only British team to qualify from the group stages in the Europa league, fa cup semi finalists and 4th season in the prem without ever being in trouble? If you'd ever been to watch stoke ud know its not all long ball and throw ins, they do and can play the ball along the ground and play it well, they have a tall squad so they play to their advantages, like anyone wouldAnd as for Ba, he was rated 9 million pounds at the time, if he was free like he was when newcastle signed him, im sure stoke would of taken the risk, but risking 9 million on someone whos knee could go anytime would of been stupidBa was not free when stoke were interested get your facts rightWhat is the wrong way to play football? Surely the right way is the winning way!!How can you say he was rated 9 million pounds? 9 million pounds to WHO ,he had clause in west ham contract ,and as for his Knee there is only Stoke said its knackered do the whole of the Prem ask Tony Pullis if the guy there looking at is OK . If BA lasts the season Tony will look like the biggest Bellend of the season FACTThreec lubs BEFORE Stoke turned him down due to a medical.Stoke had made an 8m bid which was accepted, he then trained with Stoke before failing the medical by "A very long way". The clubs before Stoke and since (including West Ham and Newcastle) have been unable to get insurance for Ba, hence Stoke not proceeding with an 8m transfer. Since then he went to West Ham on a nominal fee, pay as you play then to Newcastle on a free as no clubs were willing to pay the transfer fee......sorry to let a silly thing like facts get in the way boys ;)LOL ba is now one of the best strikers in the prem, the only reason why Newcastle signed him was becasue it was on a free. No one would have paid 9 mil based on the medical advice, however free transfer is good business. Ba would not be sold for anything less than 20 mil now fact. Newcastle took a gamble on a freebie and it paid off. Also, Stoke... dream on if he goes it will be to one of the top 4 clubs for more than stoke can afford.It wasnt pulis who said BA is a Walking time bomb but the medical center in harley street london that most clubs use and also the same medical team who told west ham at some point BA nee will completely finish him off .thats why he went of a free because no club would invest money into a player that at any time could be finishedWhy do you lot thik you are a massive club ?
you never win nothing and as for your fan base there is,nt another football club within 20 miles of you,thats why you have decent gates,if you were based in N.W ,Midlands,or London you ,d just be a small struggling club,How many teams are there in stoke again?Im not gonna say were a massive club cause were not but we are bigger than stoke just look at the fan base and also the current position in the league.Stoke are poor at best... all I can say is D D D D D D D D DEMBA BA, DEMBA BA DEMBA, DEMBA BA....See how long he lasts


05 Jan 2012 20:44:32
Doncaster striker Billy sharp is subject to a suprising bid from Manchester united. Estimated 3million. They are said to want the striker to bulk up there attacking options and sharp fits the picture(4)(26)Hhahahhhaahah thats the best post ive ever seen, not even at attempt at plausable reality, superbRooney. Chico. Owen. Bervitov. Welbeck and then sharp are you on this planet?


05 Jan 2012 20:43:27
Hull City's transfer targets will be Vito Mannone, Robbie Brady, Joshua King and Adam Hammill.(11)(5)Heard James Henry is on the radar as well as a box to box centre midAnd where are hull going to get this money?Hull City are now owned by the Allam family who are extremely wealthy and have already put 40m into the club in the last 18 months, they are willing to back any requests for players that Nick Barmby wants as they know that the premier league is where we need to be for them to get a substantial return on their investments so far.So why did pearson spend last season cutting your wage bill if they have invested that much and also parachute payments. i smell bsHow come they never sign anyone then? At least clubs like west ham and Leicester actually spend the money. All you hear on this site is how rich hull and Southampton are yet they never actually spend any money!!!The Mannone, Brady and King deals are all loans, so don't require much cash anyway.Dont think any of those named above will cost greatly; maybe James Henry around 1m but now Brady has resigned on loan they may spend the money on a striker anywayHull and Leicester fans may claim that their owners are rich(not at prem standards)but even money do not attract all players to small clubs like themI'm as ignorant about Hull's financial position as most people on this site are of Southampton's. However, since new ownership some 2 years ago, we have virtually re-built our squad with a few 'ins' each t/f window. Unlike Leicester, this has ensured squad stabilty without recklessly paying over inflated t/f fees and wages.Look at how much money leicester have spent over the last few years and look where they are now the allam family are worth just shy of 300 million and if nick barmby feels he needs to buy players they will back him 100% but if we can save money on loan deals and still get promoted all is well. oh and leicester how does the league table look from down thereDont get hammil not the best and in it for money you see.


05 Jan 2012 20:39:44
Aston Villa have said that Darren Bent is not for sale at any price. Liverpool are on the hunt for Sunderland midfielder Stephane Sessegnon because reports say he is unsettled in the north east. Also Liverpool are interested in FC Twente striker Luke De Jong and Blackburn's Steven Nzonzi.

I don't think Liverpool should buy Rangers striker Nikita Jelavic.(19)(14)Steve McClaren said today that De Jong is not going anywhere.....what now?Torres to liverpool 28 million -andy carrol to newcastle 22 million how about this

torres.suarezLiverpool would need to splash 20 million + as Sessegnon's much better than Henderson and if he's not settled in the N.E. do you think the area of Liverpool will entice him?!Apparently kennys been in London shopping but I don't think he would take Torres backLiverpool will not sign Sess. He is too good and will only leave to go back to France as that's where his family is. He is not unsettled for any other reason and is enjoying his football under MONSunderland would not sell Sess for less than 15M in my opinion and latest reports say that Sessegnon was unhappy with the club performance, now he is reported to be happy at NE. If Sess goes, he will go back to France. Sunderland will do everything to keep him, his is one of our best and will be sold only for a ridiculous amount of money to help the club financially and to rebuild. He has 2.5 years left according to contract reports and I wouldn't be surprised if Sunderland would try to sign a new contract with him during summer.Newcastle are not gonna splash 22mil for carroll, maybe al loan deal is possible


05 Jan 2012 20:33:51
Seen a few people post about ex Werder Bremen striker Liam Boyce so thought i would give a bit of info hopefully its of some help. Have heard he's been offerred a trial at 1 scottish team and a at least 2 english league teams. From what i'm told he has a contract offer from glentoran but he's holding out for a move to england. I know its not a major transfer but it might be of interest to a few people. cheers

sources close to junior hoillet say that an approach has been made from newcastle united. player keen to speak to newcastle and blackburn resigned to loosing player.nxt 24-48hrs decision to be made!(18)(8)


05 Jan 2012 19:35:28
Wigan have had a 750k bid accepted for Nottingham Forest's McGugan.(2)(12)I'm not a forest nor a Wigan fan but being a season ticket holder at Ipswich town i have seen Mcgugan a few times I think his value should be higher!Norwich more like he will go with Gunter.They may have had a bid excepted, but it would be at least 3 times that price. Several prem clubs are interested and Forest are willing to sell to the highest bidder above 2m.Lewis is worth whatever a club think he is worth.He can be infuriatingly lazy and useless to downright unplayable - all in the same half of a game! Personally I think the bigger the stage the better he will respond and he has been going stale at Forest for the last 6 months. I can see him at Arsenal or Spurs because they play his style - good luck in your move Lewis.You are a great talent so move up and on in your career - from a Notts Co. fan.


05 Jan 2012 19:30:59
Colchester to sign Sean Marks from Braintree for a fee around £20,000 after colchester manager John Ward was seen taking to him after the game.

Also on Colchesters radar is...
Liam Boyce who is currently a free agent
QPR Goalkeeper Brian Murphy to replace Ben Williams if he leaves in the window.
Sam Newson is a player Colcheters development team are keen on bringing to the side, he is currently on the list to be trialled, Althouh the deal may not be set till the end of the season.

Out from the bank could be highly rated midfielder Anthony Wordsworth to Norwich city, this will however be a costly signing for Norwich with the amount coming to £700,000 + Midfeilder Lappin

Williams future is unknown as of now and Henderson could stay at Colchestetr despite interest from Both Sheffield clubs and Watford.(6)(3)Sam Newson is a tall fast good centre forward who can score goals and is a local lad. I should know i trained him and his brother Ben now at Stanway Rovers

Norwich Close On Snodgrass
....................{Ed003's Note - Could you use the reply button please then we dont have to read lots of posts that have already been edited. thank you.}(11)(10)First time ive heard about this.who the hell is snodgrass.not a two bob player from league 1 i hope.Who is snodgrass?? you have to be kidding me? we reportedly bid like 5 million for him in the summer, got turned down. But he is injured at the moment anyway, burst appendix, so can't see this happening at all, how is he supposed to complete a medical?HO look at u, league 1 players not good enough for norwich now ? And where was Mr pilkington playing last season. Never forget ya roots lad, its not long ago since norwich were in league 1. AGNo he is not from league 1, he is a right mid who plays for leeds united and he is left footed and he is pure qualityLeeds can't afford to lose a top player like snodgrass at this current time. I don't see Snodgrass leaving in January however saying that bates never fails to dissapoint


05 Jan 2012 19:05:01
Ipswich have offered £1.2 million for Marvin Sordell plus Tamas Priskin to Watford.(2)(15)Your about 4 million shortHonest - that is a total value of 1.25m - which is so far off Marvins value - it was not worth the time or paper in sending it inI can quite believe that Jewell and Ipswich are conceited enough to make this offer. But not that it will be accepted.R u saying Priskin is worth 50k he scored 11 international goals in 38R u saying Priskin is worth 50k he scored 11 international goals in 38 - Do you mean in 1938?If Priskin is that good why are you trying to offload him to any club??


05 Jan 2012 18:15:47
Ed any Cardiff rumours in or out?(6)(4)Kebe in Heaton outWhere is Heaton rumoured to be going? I know we have signed Elliott Parish, so it would make sense. As it now leaves us with four keepers.

Leeds united set to sign Martin Kelly from Liverpool on loan(8)(19)What source is this from?I've heard it from Howsons brother!It true my cousin is friends with Adam Morgan and he said he hope to get out on loan to a league 1 or championship side Leeds are also looking at midfield suso but Liverpool don't wanna loan him outHis wages would be ridiculous! no way bates would pay that! unless Liverpool are offering to pay his wages, however don't see him coming anywayIn liverpools plans so its a no from me.


05 Jan 2012 18:48:31
Crewe are very close to signing former Nigeria international George Abbey from Akritas Chlorakas in Cyprus. The Second Division side have been told by Abbey that he wants a return to England and the 33 year old defender will sign a one and a half year deal, once his settlement with the Cypriots can be agreed.(4)(2)


05 Jan 2012 18:47:43
Cash in on Doyle and sign Kenwyne Jones. He will be a better suit or front with Fletcher. Also Wolves 2 sign Spearing on Loan and Wittingham from Cardiff.(9)(6)Whittingham going nowhere pal! LolNeither is spearing he's filling in for lucas


05 Jan 2012 18:45:34
Wolves r 2 sign wayne bridge, nedum onohua and nicky manyard. Also linked with Jones of Stoke and Diarra of Madrid. We need to splash the cash or we will struggle. BELIEVE ME!(6)(6)I believe that you'll struggle, don't believe you could ever sign anyone from R.Madrid!U will never get Maynard he's going to NorwichMate Wolves have 3 million to spendI hope Maynard goes to Norwich! We don't want that midget at the Wolves!


05 Jan 2012 18:19:43

If not in this window then the summer one..(5)(8)Sorry pal that's rubbishNot Rubbish, Fergie is a fan of the young scottish international and may be used a a defensive midfielder pairing with cleverly in the future. wouldnt be to expensive but he has got a very bright future.


05 Jan 2012 18:18:58
Hartlepool United are in talks to sign Danny Spiller from Gillingham. The League 2 midfielder is 30 years old and is interested in a move to United as he looks to play in League 1. Spiller has also been offered a new deal by the Kent side.
It is also expected that new boss Neale Cooper could go in for Bradford midfielder Michael Flynn. Flynn is keen on a move away from City after struggling over the two years since he joined from Huddersfield and is keen on a return to League 1 again.(1)(4)Very unlikely as Spiller loves playing for the Club he loves,and under Hess.


05 Jan 2012 18:12:23
if Norwich manage to sign naughton on a permanent deal this transfer window, they are going to rival barnsley and try and sign Gai Assulin from man city on loan til the end of the season.

they have recently been lacking quality and creativity through the middle of the pitch and Paul Lambert see's him as the perfect player to help they in their bid for survival, and man city and assulin would prefer a move to another premier league team over championship side barnsley.(3)(7)Who puts this rubbish on here. Doyle signed a new 4 year deal before the season. Hes goin nowhereBarnsley no longer interested in signing Assulin as said by keith hill on radio today.Whover commented on doyle is an idiot, the original post had nothing to do with him, u must be crazy.

Kebe to Wolves or QPR

He will not sign a new contract or go to Leicester(4)(14)Lambert wants him at NorwichSeems norwich are in for everyone!From a Norwich fan, can everyone stop linking all championship/league 1 players to Norwich. There have been pretty much no leaks as to who Norwich are interested in. Lambert has said he will not panic buy, but is interested in 2 or 3 players. As no one knows who we are interested in, I think the only player people can say we're linked with is Snodgrass as we have had past interest in him. (not saying we will get him as can't see Leeds selling him in the middle of the season)

Preston caretaker manager Graham Alexander and David Unsworth are very close to bringing in two players as they aim to push PNE back into the top six.
An ambitious loan signing of former full back Billy Jones is set to raise fans hopes. Jones left the club in the summer to join West Brom but has found first team opportunities hard to come by. The full back will join until the end of the season.
The seond player set to join is 1860 Munich goalkeeper and Hungary international Gabor Kiraly. He will sign a deal until the end of the season.(2)(14)We have got a keeper who signed an 18 month contract!! get a grip ladWho ever posted this is not a pne fan ,1 billy is plasyin prem

Harry Redknapp has told Daniel Levy who he wants and Levy is a busy man.
Cavani is the top target, and Levy will offer 32m to Napoli. Other targets are Dzeko and Damiao.
Kaka, Shiqiuri, Hoilett, Hazard and Dembele are other targets.(18)(20)Im a Spurs fan mate, just what are you on? You know you have just made a fool of yourself!Although i'd love to see any of the mentioned players at Spurs i think you're deluded if you think any of these players are anything more than a link, the only few tottenham could even hope to sign is Damiao, Hoilett and Shaqiuri.. don't believe everything you read in the sun, anyway i hope i'm wrong and we could get one or two of these... but btw you forget to mention any defenders, rumours around the country suggests Samba's a possibility but i reckon we're abit slim at left back.. hopefully someone like Peirea the Porto left back would be nice :)Anyone else dreamer.....maybe messi, ronaldo as well. have a strong coffee when u wake up fellaJust seen torres's agent with a spurs scout. You heard it here first.

Newcastle update
Newcastle have bid 7.8 million for montpellier centreback yanga m'biwa the french side may struggle to keep him as he has already admitted he would love to play in the PL although newcastle will face stiff competition french champions lille

Newcastle have also had a bid rejected for dijon midfielder benjamin corgnet although the french side have stated a deal may be possible in the summer newcastle are expected to make another substantial offer

Newcastle continue to be linked with a whole host of strikers from jermain defoe to kenwyne jones however a deal does look to be nearing completion to sign 32 year old juventus striker vincenzo iaquinta on a season long loan deal(18)(8)

jelavic and bent to liverpool 100%(8)(25)Please stop these bent rumours! There's no chance in hell that it's happening... Why pay 30 mil on bent when you can get 2 top class players for that or 1 world class player. Please you haven't got a clue!No clue!? well considering lpool paid 35mil for andy carroll an unproven prem striker, 30mil for bent a proven goalscorer seems cheap to me!As Harry said he couldn't hit a barn door! most of his goals come from penalties or where he has fallen on the ball. he's already wasted 35 mil on one piece of carp why would he pay another 30 for something even worse? Also u think villa are gonna sell him and just rely on heskey get a grip sonAndy Carroll cost 35 million due to the Torres deal. Liverpool stated that they wanted whatever Carroll cost plus 15 million, Newcastle therefore asked for 35m, with Chelsea paying a total of 50m. It was a three way transaction, with Newcastle cashing in on Abramovichs cash.That fella got well and truely put in his place there, but ey we have raided newcastle of there best talent once before why not do it again? i say Cabaye&Ba will do us proud, personally id even take a risk on Ben Arfa, after all.. it was a wonder strike against everton.Liverpool Are Looking In Completely The Wrong Place For A Striker! Torres Is The Answer To Our Problems! Would Love Him BackKing Kenny never was good with money

Doncaster Rovers are very close to signing two defenders.
Ashley Westwood has been training with the club over the last week after his release from League bottom side Northampton and could join Rovers as soon as tomorrow on a free transfer on a six month contract.
The second name in question is Rangers defender Jordan McMillan. McMillan is only 23 years old and has been told by the Glasgow club to find another side. McMillan is wanted by a number of Championship and League 1 clubs but will turn them down in order to sign a one and ahlaf year contract with the South Yorkshire club.(3)(4)Could be something in it.Doncaster just signed a Rangers youth player in McMahon.I am a Rangers fan,and we have never given McMillan a chance.Be good to see him get first team football.AllyNo chance jordan mcmillan will leave rangers as whittaker has to go for op and will be out for around 7 weeksJordan McMillan was on loan at wrexham this time last season, and was not very good! McMillan is at best Isthmian League! Donny are signing Lee Fowler and Andy Mangan!For u to watch wrexham,that proves you no nothing about REAL footballI watch wrexham because its close to where i live, very good side, i know how to spell too, anyway, McMillan is poor. Very Very poor. I support Man Utd, but i would rather watch wrexham at the moment!McMillan went on loan cos there is no reserve football up here.And he could still go,as we have a new Nambian full back.And Ortiz and Broadfoot is still there.Broadfoot is attracting interest from Bristol City.And might be away,if we get a decent bid in for him.The boy Perry can also play righ back.Ally

Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cotterill, is set to raid Championship rivals Watford as he looks to keep his club out of relegation and is aiming towards pushing them into the top half.
Watford full back Carl Dickinson and centre midfielder Jonathan Hogg, are both expected to join Forest over the weekend after a combined fee of around £1.7 million was accepted late on Monday night. The duo only joined the club in the summer from Stoke and Aston Villa respectively.
Another player that could be joining is Leeds midfielder Michael Brown. Brown is rumoured to have had an argument with United boss Simon Grayson after their defeat to Barnsley and will join Forest on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal.(8)(13)Dickinson and Hogg wont be leaving Watford for a very poor Forest....worst rumour on hereHaving forest got any money to spend not like leicester city with loads of moneyI doubt these players would want to take a backwards step in their careers.If you believe the rumours circulating the City Ground, four players could be leaving for approx 8-10m. with half being reinvested. Don't forget pre season Forest were one of the Favorites for promotion after just missing out 2 years running.I think by joining watford they have already taken a step backwards,Forest are a much Bigger Club!Makes you laugh these delusional fans, just because you were successful a million years ago doesn't make you a big club. Get in the real world.We don't need any central mid, we have plenty as it is!I was told yesterday the first team coach of a Championship club, that pretty much all of Forest's players are up for sale as they're skint.

Bristol City boss Derek McInnes, is set to bring in three new faces this week and they could even be available for their next league game.
McInnes is keen on two midfielders and a striker but has been told if he wants anymore, he would have to sell to recruit.
The first midfielder expected to sign is 23 year old midfielder Greg Cameron. Cameron was released by Dundee United in the summer and has been training with the club since beginning of December. Cameron is believed to be very close to signing a three month deal.
The second midfielder close to signing is Charlie Miller. Miller was recently released by Clyde and has played in Australia and Norway. Miller is 35 years old and McInnes believes he has the experience vital for Championship football.
The third and final player is Arvydas Novikovas from Hearts. The attacker will sign on loan until the end of the season and will sign on a free transfer once his contract is up at the SPL side. The Lithuanian international believes he can make an impact at Championship level.(5)(12)Last time i seen charlie miller was in the scottish masters when he played for rangers, must of been around july/aug. He looked atleast 4 or 5 stone overweight to be a pro footballer so if this is true you better hope he's been putting the miles in on the treadmill. Clyde are 3rd or 4th bottoom of the scots rd div and he got released yet DM wants him lol. The other 2 i dont know much about although i can remember the lithuanian making a few headlines a while back because of some of his displays for hearts.

Okpala?(3)(11)Darren Purse has signed, that is true, the rest is somewhat fancyful! Argyle wont spend anywhere near two million at the moment. They will stregnthen the side where needed but spending will be kept to a minimum untill all outstanding debts to staff and former players have been paid, quite rightly too. The future is looking a lot brighter COYG Bryher PilgrimWhat a load of crap, 2 million. We have never spent that in a season when we was in the championship let alone league 2 and just out of admin!Argyle will never spend 2 million tho I would love to see boddin and o'kane at the club would never be able to afford either we definatly need a good attacking centr mid and a decent right winger and one more striker. COYGWhat are you on? 2 mill for these why not just spend on one half decent player instead of spending on up coming junk?

Portsmouth boss Michael Appleton is keen on bringing three players into Fratton Park as the ambitious former West Brom number two looks towards the top six.
He is set to raid his old club and bring two faces in. Chilean international defender come midfielder Gonzalo Jara, is in talks over a possible loan move to the South coast after recently being transfer listed by the Premier League outfit.
Another expected to join is former Celtic striker Marc Antoine Fortune. The striker has recently been on loan at Doncaster and has stated he would like a move to the Championship but not to South Yorkshire.
Appleton is expected to bring in a goalkeeper. It is expected to be experienced stopper Russell Hoult. The Hereford goalkeeper is into his coaching nowadays but Appleton is keen to sign him on a one month rolling contract as well as some time coaching.(5)(8)We don't need a keeper or coach!Jara is worth a punt, but dont expect too much from Fortune.

Dont think he is really injuredI will give you 100000 if norwich sign someone tomorrow..and i am a norwich fan.If we were signing someone tomorrow, David Mcnally or someone would of said there was going to be a press conference tomorrow or something, like they did in the summer. Very Unlikely.What did I say? Don't see any signings being confirmed today, don't put rubbish on here. At least I get to keep my money.

Smudgers comimg home!

be on the OS in next seven days

FACT ! ( lol because I've put fact it's got to be true )

oh and Snoddy would rather have his appendix put back in than play for Norrrrrrrwich lol
MOT(10)(10)I'd take smith back anyday.... I'd even take back Bowyer!Really , you are forgetting the livingstone connection with Paul Lambert.
And don't kid yourself he aint for sale, Bates will take the money if a decent offer comes in.He will go to a better team than lamberts,You are assuming that another club has inquired about him, there has been nothing to suggest that has happened.Snodgrass to a big club (norwich prem )Define big club!? Don't wanna disparage Norwich but implying Leeds aren't a big club? Check the attendances out mate....Thought turning down 5mill from Norwich and snods coming out on os saying Norwich are not big enough if he was to leave leeds would end this long ago.never mind about arts,check the difference in world wide fan base,leeds have one and Norwich don't!!If Norwich had a bid accepted for Snodgrass, he would not turn down the move. Not saying Norwich's history is better, and that they are a bigger club in respect to reputation around Europe. But the fact of the matter is, Leeds will not be going up this season, any non-biased Leeds fan would accept that, and Norwich are a Premier League club, and by the looks of things, we will be next season!


05 Jan 2012 16:30:07

No4 The Benetton Family although this may be with EJ.

Personally I would not rule out a Chinese connection.
Plymouth Graham(5)(5)He's called Brian Howe!There is no point in speculating no one knows who they are, and they will only be known when they want to be. All i want is someone to come in with rea;istic ambitions not to come in and say they want to get to the premier league. if they come out and say we are in the championship and we will biuld the club to sustain that status i will be well chuffed in doing that you never know what could happen

Norwich Boss Paul Lambert is set to bolster his attack by making a move for Southampton Striker Rickie Lambert. The deal is expected to be finalised within the next few days. Lambert is also looking at a loan move for Leeds winger Robert Snodgrass with a view to a permanent deal in summer should Norwich avoid relegation.(9)(18)Yeah ok and then the cow jumped over the moon.
Utter bo11ocksThink you need to get your head out of the clouds mate !Lambert will not leave saints until we are to good for him. When he get over 33 will he only leave.Ha ha ha, why would we send snodders on loan when were down to the bare bones, fool!Utter tripe! get a grip no lambert and deffo no snodgrass ! dream on! u got consolation prize in soft arse johnson! foolDo you mean the soft asp Bradley Johnson who we got for nothing and has been touted for the England squad, sour grapes because he would not re-sign for Leeds , Grayson apparently tried 3 times to resign him but bates is tight, so he choose us.Bj was offer just 1 contract that he said was not enough but would still stay if offered what he thought he was worth,he will never play for England so stop reading the sun.he would not be a starter for leeds this season hense his contract offer.Wouldn't be a starter for Leeds? What planet are you on sunshine.... Leeds are NOTHING, good result at Barnsley by the way... Stop living in the past....I am a Liverpool fan but I would say Norwich is nothing compared to leeds utd around the world.I agree around the world Norwich are nothing compared to Leeds. But that's history. At the moment, and looks as it will be staying this way for next season, Norwich are a prem team, Leeds are championship team..and i know which league I would rather play in, and as would 99% of pro footballers.

He scores ca. 7 goals a season, which, for a striker, isn't a good return. United already have Jon Daly who has, thus far, notched up 14 in all competitions. Mackie will not be signing for United - FACT!!Why on earth would United want an Aberdeen reject? He doesn't score goals - that's like saying a postie can't deliver letters!!

crawley in talks with rudi skacel of hearts(14)(14)Like that will happen he played and scored in the Edinburgh he is one of the best players hearts have so they will want to keep him at all costs cause he is a fan favourite aswellNo way he would drop down to league two.Hardly a drop is it? And no, I am not a Crawley fan!Soon to be league 1 - gotta be better than splLeague 2 would be a step up for himAre people forgetting Hearts are really struggling financially and therefore it is almost impossible for any player to be kept 'at all costs'. While League 2 is a bit far fetched he may find he actually gets paid on time there...Go on show your ignoranceSkacel is balls anyway, attitude problems that ladThink you will find he one of the ones who get paid on timeSPL is a better standard than League One never mind League Two. Muppet!Remember that Crawley are loaded. Everybody needs a regular income and Hearts have a complaint against them regarding late wagesI take it you have never watched league 1 football? The quality of football on display in league 1 far exceeds what I've seen in the SPL. By the way, I am including rangers and celtic in that, although without them the standard would be parks football.Rudi just told radio Scotland,that he is not signing for Crawley.So that should be the end of this story.And fellow Scots,please dont rise to the English stupid comments.AllyCrawley town website confirms interests in rudi .steve Evans quote "let us wait and see what hearts say.he is their player and we must respect that totally"Rangers and Celtic could beat a few prem league and the football leagueSpl is allot better than lg 2

Millwalls Liam Trotter to Fulham for fee believed to be in the region of £1.65million. ( Explaining his lack of first team action recently after demanding a move)(6)(7)Well he played last Sat against BCFC.. not very well I would addOnly games hes missed are through injury. Would cost a lot more than figure quoted. Millwall looking to add to squad not sell.

Southampton to bid for Ross McCormick of Leeds United.(10)(24)Where did u hear that mateNo McCormick plays for Leeds u person McCormack get it right and he won't go to youMcCormick ! in your dreams mate.Southampton can do better, McCormack is to hit and miss, he is a player who really needs high confidence.What matters is how many goals he scores not the spelling of his name. As long as the guy printing his name onto the back of my Saints shirt gets it right I couldn't care lessYou can have him. Just make sure you give us plenty of cash.Happens to all of leeds strikers think of beckford remember him look where he is now... just making the everton reserves good luck mcCormackThink you will find Beckford at Leicester!!

Aston Villa will not be selling James Collins or Darren Bent... Just Speculation! VTID!(7)(21)Not what I've heard?! Collins is very likely to Sunderland and Bent only left SAFC cos of Bruce. MON to discuss with O'Neill option of coming back...QPR after Darren Bent is what i hearBent to discuss with O'Neill option of coming back...If Villa get the right deal Ginge is a goner, they've already offered him to Blackburn. Not speculation.PHEW! At least the joker isnt thinking of coming back to The Lane.If we got 30m for Bent from Liverpool - we will sell him.
Eck could then grab 3m for Drogba & still have 27m extra to re-invest.
Clark is better than Collins anyday too.AV still owe 65% of the origonal fee to Sunderland and are struggling to pay it - dont rule Bent going back to Sunderland out or another player to pay this debt back.Drogba to villa? what have you been smoking. that's hilarious3m for didier what his left foot?

Guardian journalist Ewan Murray has tweeted Southampton have made an inquiry for Celtic's Kris Commons.!/mrewanmurray/status/154913338126630912(6)(7)Yeah, but the tweet goes on to imply the possibility of a swap deal for Lambert. So I'm not sure I'm ptting a lot of faith in the words and thoughts of Ewan Murray at the moment...I'd not swap them. Cortese would lose all respect/support he has won from the fans. Commons wouldn't replace Lambert, he's more of a winger/attacking mid. Wouldn't mind him, possibly on a trial loan as we've done many times?

Ian Dowie will be the new manager of Bristol Rovers

source on the inside!!(11)(9)The mans a joke neverGood luck to rovers if he is manager, blue square here you go !Probably 1 of the best british managers not recognised a true legend....Waste of space, another sanchez,keane.worthington,ince,there has to be at least one decent league 1 or league 2 ex manager who could do the job?I am the source on the inside and its utterly rubbish


05 Jan 2012 13:35:35
Sunderland looking to sign james collins, emile heskey and Jordan rhodes(8)(13)Good buys but too big a step up 4 rhodesMaybe Collins, but not Heskey & Rhodes. We have enough young talented forwards at the club, so Rhodes would just become part of a long list. Any money spent on a striker will be on that of the 'proven' variety...Rhodes not proven? Im sorry, do you play withe smaller goals in the premiership?You could ask Beckford about that. The top flight is littered with the bodies of lower league strikers who never really made the transition.A lot of forwards have scored hatfuls of goals in the championship, but can't do it in the prem. Rhodes is too much of a gamble for JanuaryRhodes could easy become prem standard under a manager like Martin oneillRhodes is no more that L1 level and as an everton fan beckford is good enough for prem as his 10 gls proves even though he hardly started,it is just that Leicester do not have good enough players to make chances for him.

Watford to sign:
Tudgay - Forest
Sharp - Doncaster
Madine - Sheff Wed(4)(19)Wishful thinking mate , but forest and Wednesday are big clubs looking to build in the transfer window not sell to smaller clubsWatford could not afford any of those 3. Tudgay is banging them in at Forest. Sharp has a release clause of 1.85 million and Madine has a broken foot.What do you meen banging them in you didnt score for ten hours of football.Why do people think sharp has a 1.85m release clause? their chairman has clearly stated he can leave for 3m minimum.Forest and Wednesday big clubs, ha ha. I think they must be living off their memories. Forest are struggling to stay in the Championship and Wednesday are an ok League 1 side. Nothing more, nothing less.Well of course his Chairman would say that wouldn't he?
The player's Agent says something quite different.
We'll see very soon when he goes anyway.Watford can,t get half support


05 Jan 2012 13:30:52
Ipswich Town are hoping to land Millwalls winger James Henry during the January transfer window. Henry, one of the Championships best crossers and dead ball hitters, is seen as the player to supply the necessary ammunition. But, they could well have a battle on their hands with Hull City also being keen to land the talented 22 year old.(10)(8)

They will also sign lukas jukecwitz for 1.5m from coventry and possibly a Midfielder from the premiership on 1 month loan to cover the injured nicely bailey

Names being touted include mauro Formica of Blackburn Kerry augisten of Swansea and Darren gibson of Manchester united(5)(15)Kink could be a good signing for donny we are resigned to loosing sharp so why not sell him to boro if we do go down kink will kill league 1

qpr will sign alex from chelsea for 2million and onuhua set to hold talks. nikika jelavic to prefer liverpool, so rangers to bid for zamora and johnson. rob hulse to sign for blackpool on loan.(17)(16)And where are rangers getting the money for Zamora?Clearly Queens Park Rangers and tony fernandes...the one chucking millions at a failing club.. nice one.You're right. I've also heard that QPR bought the title last year. Apparently, they spent 75 million on players and pay Warnock 500k a week. Not to mention the silk cushions stuffed with unicorn hair for season ticket holders and YTS boys employed solely to blow hot air up our trouser legs when the weather turns nasty. My personal favourite though is the fat man they pay to shout 'Ha ha!' at the sourly anus-faced fans of other clubs who are bitter and jealous.Liverpool wont sign rangers dud,they have their own 35 mill,mistake.Rangers are skint. absolutely skint. unbelievably skint. the only signings they can afford are free transfers or loans that are paid in part by the current club!Qpr lol championship here u comeIdots y would jelavic prefer to sign for liverpool of signing for a team he alreadys plays for not saying y would he sign for liverpool saying y would he sign for glasow rangers when he is already there

chesterfield are speculated to have agreed a loan deal to bring danny ings on a seaon long loan. Also adam clayton is another loan target if tommy lee goes the other way to leeds for a fee around 750k.(3)(15)They could sign Pammy for an extra tenner.Clayton won't be leavingWhy on earth would Leeds accept that. Clayton is one of our only fit central midfielders, and we don't need a goalkeeper. Try again.

Lukas jukecwitz to Middlesbrough £1.5m deal agreeded

He wil play in the fa cup Saturday if fit before traveling to teeside to discuss terms and have a medical early next week transfer should be done in time to make debut against burnley on jan 14

Boro also intrested in billy sharp but Look to have been out priced out of a move(10)(11)This is the price that Cardiff would not agree to so it's a possibility, although I was told that Southampton are most likelySouthampton have dropped all interest in jukitwitz after signing the japanease strikerThere's a solid foundation to this jukitwitz has his heart set on a move to boro he was ready to come in August until Coventry pulled out at the last minDoes anyone actualy believe he is out of the fa cup game because he is injured or is it because boro don't want him cup tied he is on his way to boro the last missing link to boro's return to the premiershipInteresting that he could possibly make his boro debut at Coventry on jan 21st if he doesnt make burnley game script is written for him to score don't you think

Man utd to bid for Marek Hamsik, ferguson must see him as a way to finally repair his midfield since loss of scholes and Keane.

Rickardo x(10)(18)Man u cannot afford anyone especially with the financial fair rules coming in, your money is going to service your debt! no money to buy players means your a declining club! would not surprise me if fergie bowed out after this season rather than remembered for passing utd over as a declining team. you are the noisey neighbours now. never a dull day in manchester now, its always sky blue!You've won an FA Cup in 30 years, big deal. Get over yourselves and start bragging when you've won something of importance, as of yet you win nothing in JanuaryClearly your wrong ricardo, did you not see the open top bus around the council house on new years day!

I must have missed all the united ones over the years.

empty seats!!!Hamsik more likely to go somewhere where he has half decent team mates in mid around him. he cant hold midfield he attacks and if no1 in man u field stay back, world class rampage all over.


05 Jan 2012 12:36:54
Norwich have the least debt out of all the teams in the PL.


Thats because you dont pay out big wages, as you have not got any big players and you have a tiny dolls house as a stadium,a championship ground.

^ what team do you support because 27000 is hardly a Doll house + once we stay up again next year we are extending the stadium to 35000+(11)(14)If you stay upIsnt it Arsenal?Not true wolves have 0 debtEh man city anyoneMan city are over 100m in debtWba and wolves have no debt !!Stoke debt freeWolves have no debt,west brom have no debt ,both clubs cut their cloth to suit their incomes,boring maybe,but at least they wont be another pompey,leeds,and the rest of the admin league.Coo 35'000 thats nearly as big as Portman Road lolEverton, we have no debt Bill Kenwright is clearly a huge billionaire :)I'd heard wolves were in 40 million debt?Wolves...40 million in debt, i think not you imbecile. wolves are totally debt free, a well run club that is sustaining premier league status(just) and building for the future with young hungry players annd a bigger better stadium.....the futures bright the future old gold and black my friend...Portman road, could be 20,000 based on your current fan loyalty, and then you still swing a cat in most of it and what a dump, shabby springs to mind.Portaloo Road holds under 30,000!!Norwich lol funnyPortman road hold 32,000The only reason Wolves are debt free is because the previous rich owner sold the club (including wiping any debts) for 1.Wolves and west brom are run well and are debt free i believe. while the person who said stoke are debt free im not too sure about. they may be but if they get relagated expect admin the lot. the amount of players they buy with large installments are only possible because the money from the EPL.

Swindon will announce in the morning that they have signed Wes Fodderingham from Palace for an undisclosed fee, there will be a 40% sell on clause and a fee rumoured to be initial 175K up front with a further 50k if they win promotion.

Swindon will also announce two more players leaving next week, they are thought to be Commazi and Lanzano, both of which haven't played much this season and are on good wages.

All of the Mcleod talk is nonsense Barnet will not sell to Swindon until after the Area final of JPT.

It is thought that Mcleod isn't the striker PDC is after and that Billy Kee of Burton is his preferred target. It is no secret that Swindon are interested in Luke Rooney of the Gills and are hopefull a deal will be done for the creative midfielder, this would then see Esian Esejas loaned out with a view to him moving on. There could however be a shock with a few recent discussions taking place regarding Ritchie with Burnley and Sheffield United both interested in signing him.(6)(7)Just been announced on the adver site that the deal will be finalised in the morning.

Swansea ready to take Barcelona defender Sergi Gomez to the Liberty Stadium on loan for the rest of the season. The swans are also set to sign Jonathan Soriano from Barcelona after their previous attempt to sign the striker failed as they could not agree personal terms.(5)(8)U mean barce b..I think they shud buy a xperienced back firstWhoever said we need an expierienced back get a life!!, we have struggled with injuries all season at the back but have still kept 2 more clean sheets than the next nearest team (Man City) Alan Tate back soon as extra cover, and before somebody Says that its all down to Vorm (even though he is superb and I would not swap him for any other keeper in prem)check out our defensive records for the last few seasons!! its about time the four in front of him had some credit, Williams, Caulker, Taylor and Rangel have been ExcellentI agree with you 100%; our goalie and back 4 have been excellent; I think they may try to sign Soriano from Barca again, as Swans are also looking towards next season, and staying in the premiership.Swansea linked with barca lmao!! what you swapping danny graham for little old lionel aswell?

doncaster rovers to sign
marc antoine fortune-loan (permant in january)
matty tubbs (300k)
henry hall-arsernal youth team(8)(6)You say permemant in January, yet you post this on the 5th of january. If he was to go on loan to your mickey mouse club then he wouldn't be able to sign permemantly cause the window would have closed.Crawley wont let tubbs go for 300kHow can Rovers afford Fortune?
The most they've spent on a player is 1.1 million and that was on Billy Sharp, can't see WBA selling him for less than that..
Tubbs won't leave Crawley for 300k either, think that would have to be around 6-700k.

wba are ready to offer 5 million for wigan forwad victor moses(7)(14)No chance, He's worth at least double that, He will go to a 'Top' club when he leaves.He's not worth double that at all. He's barely worth 5mHes 19 quik and skillful 12mil to 15milHe is 21 and playing for Wigan.
Price = Under 5millionThese comments crack me up, (see above) he's 21 and playing for wigan .... WTF has that got to do with price, wigan received 17m for valencia from Man u, 9m for Nzogbia in last 12months of contract and 13m for palacios from spurs, if anything the fact that he's at wigan means he is being developed and therefore going to worth 10m + at least, and just like when James McCarthy rejected liverpool for latics because he like victor can see that his game will be developed and therefore in the long term coming to Wigan for 2-3 years will be invaluable in the long term for his career. Now for the genuine word on the street, he is very committed to wigan for at least 2 years at the very earliest as we where prepared to take a chance on him and he would repay that faith unless a top 6 side came in for him, so please little kiddies stop spouting crap and go back to your bedroom and keep on twiddling with your buttons on your PS3 .... you drip

Players loyalty that revolves around just the pay check seldom if ever work.

westham have offered four million for striker jordan rhodes!!(11)(12)WELL DONE. Your BLUE PETER badge is on its way, but RHODES is not goin to WEST HAM, he is staying put until the summer, when he will be worth alot more than 4milAs an Ipswich fan who never wanted him to leave I'm gutted but at least if he goes for big money we get a nice slice of it.You have Roy Keane to thank for that mistake! lolYes because we all know L1 players are worth 4mill or more ha ha,L1 is his level.West ham would pay out 4 million for Rhodes. They along with other big club pretenders have paid out a lot more for a lot less in the past4M is a great deal of money for a Player who has yet to play above Div 1 level, and unless Huddersfield get promoted this season into the Championship who-ever goes in for him before they see him in action at the next level is taking a gamble on him making the step up.
Being a Norwich supporter I would love to see Lambert take a gamble on him, because he seems such a natural finisher and although he would find it much more difficult to find the space he enjoys in Div1, if anyone can get him scoring in Prem its Paul Lambert and his coaching staff.
Lambert took a gamble signing Pilkington when he had not actually fully recovered from his horrific injury he suffered early last year, and it has paid off in buckets, I think Pilkington's fitness levels have been substantially increased since he signed for Norwich and coupled with his undoubted ability is making quite a few team managers sit up and take notice.

I truly believe he will set the Championship alight with his, mazy runs & goal scoring abilities......Only time will tell. This is obviously only my opinion and i'm sure some of the people out there will have nothing constructive to say.I agree. for a saints fanSaints announced they weren't interested in Maynard. So he's all yours tbh

Izale Mcleod close to being signed by west ham united in a deal that could offer barnet up to £600.000.(1)(9)Rubbish, he isnt good enough and certainly isnt worth 600k, he might be worth that to a league 1 or 2 team looking for promotion, but WHU are headed back to the prem and he would immediately be surplus as he is not good enough for the prem and would be a mediocre championship player.

snodgrass to go on loan to newcastle united until the end of the season(3)(24)No chance at allDont be rediculous, he arguable the best championship midfielder and leeds's most important player having scored 8 goals and has 12 assist to his name, why post crap when he still has 18months on his contractHe would only be interested in a permanent moveWhy on earth would he go on loan u bafoon? get off football manager! the only way snoddy will leave leeds is if we get an offer of around 5 million (kb said 8 million at start of season but 5 would tempt him i think). he wont be going on loan to anybody!Is he taking his jar with him as hes recouperating just now after an appendix operation !! And why the hell on loan ? He plays for scotland and relastic fee for him would be 3-5 million u twonkWhitts is the best midfielder in the champ by far.Whitts is ave compared to snods,most assists in championship and will only get better at only 23.Robbie koren is far better than snodgrassSnoddy is 23-24? you toby mugIns't he out of action at the moment but with just 18 months left on his contract don't be surprised if he does go in this window, and Paul Lambert at Norwich is a big fan and know's Snodgrass from his Livingstone days, and may well be tempted to test the water again, I doubt he will up his original offer which was approx 3M with poss add ons.
One things for sure if Lambert gets to work with him his fitness levels will be addressed and improved drastically.Nothing wrong with his fitness levels and leeds training complex is out of this world to what Norwich players have.


05 Jan 2012 11:43:14
Sheffield Wednesday are likely to revive an interest in Huddersfield winger Gary Roberts given the slightest indication that their promotion rivals are ready to cash in on the seven-goal winger.

I believe Roberts will be on Gary Megson’s list of January targets - if his contract stalemate at the Galpharm Stadium persists. Megson wants to make three signings in the window over and above keeping loan players including Ben Marshall.

The Telegraph understands Marshall’s future is close to resolution and that he is set to be cleared in the next few days to spend the rest of the season at Hillsborough.

Securing the Stoke winger, who is nearing a crucial contract agreement at the Britannia Stadium, has been a bigger priority than reviving any bid for Roberts who was priced beyond the Owls’ reach last summer.

Whether Huddersfield - linked with Marshall in a move that seems certain to fail - would sell to Wednesday presents a huge question mark.

But Roberts is out of contract in the summer and will become a free agent if his future is not resolved.

That is why he remains on Megson’s radar. And although Marshall is playing in Roberts’ position, both players can adapt to either flank.

It would be mouth-watering to have them both, considering Roberts was the main provider for Jordan Rhodes in the recent epic 4-4 draw at Hillsborough.

While that is a long shot, it is a demonstration of Megson’s ambition that players of his calibre - a good age too at 27 - are under consideration.

Plans to strengthen the Owls, rather than just keep what they have, are understandably overshadowing even Sunday’s attractive, Hillsborough tie with West Ham in the third round of the FA Cup.

Megson’s assistant Chris Evans won’t comment on the identity of targets but told the Telegraph: “The manager wants to bring in three players and if we can do that, we’ll have every chance of pushing on to where we want to be. And I think the chairman will be supportive, as he has been previously.

At the moment we are still a work in progress.”

Milan Mandaric is likely to see the value of investing with Wednesday having climbed back into second place - and retaining Marshall will add further impetus.

The delay is purely about the youngster’s contract negotiations with Stoke, which are said to be going well. Once those are settled, Marshall will be free to return with manager Tony Pulis’s blessing and encouragement.

It is also possible, though unclear at this stage, that Stoke could this time allow Marshall to play for the Owls in the cup - if the talks are concluded swiftly.

Evans added: “At the moment we’re having to be patient but Ben would be happy to continue his football education with us. And the gaffer here has improved his game.”

Wednesday were checking the cup status of their loan contingent as the Telegraph went to press. Danny Batth is available, while James Tavernier was cleared by Newcastle in the last round at a time when Arsenal took the opposite view with Sanchez Watt.

The Owls are genuine underdogs against a team challenging for promotion a division higher, but Evans added: “We’ll be fighting tooth and nail to be in the next round. It’s a good day out for the fans and a tie we’re all looking forward to.

“We know our objectives this season but we’d love to put on a decent performance.”(4)(7)Gary Roberts will be going nowhere in January. Leeds wanted him and we said no. Good luck for the rest of the season!

Leeds: Norwich are long-standing admirers of Snodgrass and Snodgrass would leap at the chance of a move to play in the Premiership.

It is irrelevant how much Leeds turned down in the summer. The issue is: what is he worth to Leeds and Norwich right here right now in the Jan transfer window.

The fee being discussed is about £2-3 million, with something like £1.5 payable up front (that means over 6-12 months which is what "up front" means") and the rest in clauses - such as Norwich not being relegated.

Leeds are pushing for £2 million "up front" and want to conclude a deal soonest to allow the money to be reinvested in the squad(7)(16)Snoddy isnt going anywhere bates confirmed in the summer they rejected 4.5mill for him for an unnamed pre side (Norwich) plus he has 18months left on his contract and the possibilty of him extending that if offered the right wage and subject to promotionAre you thick of course the fee is relevant - he isn't going to no tin pot, make up the numbers club like that.Leeds will look to replace snodgrass with a Bury playerTin pot make up numbers club like Norwich? Haven't you guys signed Danny Pugh!? He would jump at the chance to join a mid table Premiership club.Shud be 7mil hes fantastic 8 goals 12 assistsWhos the Bury player

they gonna go back in for
Peter Sweeney
Mike Jones
Steven Schumacher I doubt it tbh!He says he is better than norwich when leeds turned them down,if leeds sell him there will be much bigger clubs than norwich in for him,you should move on.Funny how a Tin Pot Club like Norwich is 9th in premiership and look likely to remain in Premiership this season, where are u in Championship ? - I suspect that situation will not change by season end, and then Bates will have a fire sale for your best players and sack Grayson, so I would suspect any Leeds player is available right now for a realistic offer.

BBC Radio Leeds this morning reported Lee Clarke will be making no new signings in the January transfer window with exception of injury cover loan signings.
Very strange change in events, it can only suggest that Dean Hoyle has told him he must turn things around with the current squad having made numerous in effective signings. I would think anything less than a win against Wycombe may see Clarkes exit.(4)(5)Really?? This is the same Lee Clarke that led Huddersfield to a 40 something unbeaten run of games.A lot of sides would give their right arm to have a manager like lee clark,huddersfield would be mad to even contemplate getting rid

Jenkins is the public face onlyYou are a lower league bluebird, Hugh Jenkins business is nothing to do with the Swans and in fact he is employed by the Swans and does not have any outside businesses now !.Haha biggest load of rubbish i've heard, vorm isn't worth 8million yet! there aint many keepers worth 8m and i dont think the swansea keeper is haha tatAgree, typical Bluebird fan causing trouble. Funny how they've only had fans and egos since the day Sam Hammam took them over.

Ok the inside update from Hurworth is that nothing concrete has happened yet, no one been up for talks or medicals.

In terms of what Tony is looking for it remains a powerful quick centre forward. This puts Ismael Miller and Lucas Jutkiewicz at the top of his wanted list. He has been trying to sign Jutkiewicz (who is 6 1") for 6 months and he remains 1st choice. Mowbray is an admirer of Billy Sharp and Nicky Maynard but these are not the priorities. The Bednar link mentioned below is pure speculation but Boro will end the month with at least one addition up front so you never know...

The link regarding Anel Hadzic could prove to be true but he will only be cover in Midfield. He has been scouted by the club for the last 2 months so is on the radar. The wild card in midfield is Robert Koren from Hull, Tony is a big fan and would have moved in the summer if we'd have had the space in the squad.

If a striker deal completes he will move his attentions to a winger but needs to get Tarmo Kink, Andy Halliday and Johnny Grounds off the books. The options on the wingers are less clear, Raheem Sterling from Liverpool and Norwood and Morrison from Man Utd are all loan options that have been extensively watched. Norwood would be favourite as he's more physically ready for the championship but isn't what you'd class as a natural winger.

Don't be surprised if McManus also leaves as he's bench warming on big money. If he goes the Michael Turner loan is a possibility.(6)(2)


05 Jan 2012 10:35:35
wolves and qpr have both bid 2.5 million for nedum onhuana say sky sports(12)(2)Apparently he wants 50K/week so that's wolves out of the picture, so I guess QPR will pay way over the odds again in wages to get their man, receipe for disaster, if all you sign are money hungry players who have no real affinity with the club and just move for the money.
Mr Fernandes is rich but he ain't super rich and will not continue throwing millions in without some results on the pitch.
My guess is , he is now hesitating to put huge amounts in this window, because if they get relegated (strong possibility) they already have way too many players on silly money, and will not want to sign more on big wages, more likely try to get half season loan players from premier big boys.....

The four players that have recently been released by League 1 side Yoevil, have signed or are close to signing deals with other clubs.
Arsenal are set to give a trial to their former youngster Kerrea Gilbert. Gilbert is keen on a move back to London and used to be highly rated by Arsene Wenger. The French manager is keen to give the full back another chance to impress, with a trial starting on Monday.
Arsenal are also set to to give a trial to French midfielder Flavien Belson. The former Metz midfielder is highly rated also by Wenger and will also have a trial next week.
Bristol Rovers are keen on signing former Reading youngster, Abdulai Bell-Baggie on a short term contract until the end of the season. Rovers are also in talks with former Newcastle winger Alan O'Brien.(4)(7)Gilbert was good when we had him on loan at leicester a few years backReally think Arsenal are gunna sign players that couldn't make it at Yeovil looool!

Firstly Cardiff can't afford sharp and he had said he wants to remain close to Yorkshire, and secondly if you think reading will sell Kebe for 350,000 when Leicester have bid 1.75 million you must have a straight jacket on!All of them are under priced. Sharp will go somewhere for around 3m, Kebe will be 1.5-2m to low premier league team like wolves and Mcanuff wont be going anywhereCardiff Will not need any of them players any how , We need a striker and a defender. We need Ross McCormack back or Ricky Lambert , and need a quicker defender because Hudson is too slow . Any defender suggestions ??What a load of tatterWhy do you need all those new players, you are not going anywhere other than downPlease not McAnuff....Y beleive this loser jimmy kebe will go 2 leicester and so will billy sharpY beleive this loser jimmy kebe will go 2 leicester and so will billy sharpCardiff will not go down they on form an flyin they need 2-3 players thats all we need to make it to P.L and plus players would want to go to champion ship teams at the top of the tabble to play in premier1.2 Million wouldn't even be able to buy a piece of Sharp's ear wax. he'll go for around 3 millionSharp's release clause is 1.85M so he cannot go for anything less than thatNot with the impending financial probs at the CCS they won't.

Half of you lot cant even spell player names on here so 99% of you i do not believe!!

However expect junior hoilett to leave ewood - Stoke / Tottenham / Newcastle

Samba won't leave in this window

Andrews to leave permenantly

And i don't expect anyone to come in at Ewood as the Club is in turmoil under the current owner and manager!(14)(2)So because of spelling mistakes it makes the rumour untrueThe Canadian has to go 100% or Blackburn will get nothing in the summer when he walks. Newcastle need him and if he is sold as a player with half a year left on his contract (cheap) they'd be interested. However if its the standard January pricing Fat Mike wont pay it, so likely going somewhere other than the northeast.Samba will leave this period, or risk losing at least half the fee when they are relegated end of seasonIf a bid comes in for samba and he play for one of the top 5 teams in epl he will hand in a transfer request top 5 man c man u thfc afc nufc notice lfc didnt make top 5Nufc top 5 dont make me laugh

Norwich Close On Snodgrass

Norwich City are edging ever closer to securing the signing of highly rated Leeds United winger Robert Snodgrass.

Despite Snodgrass being currently sidelined, recovering from an appendix operation, Paul Lambert has gone ahead with his plan to add the Scot to his squad as The Canaries bid to survive in the Premier League.

The fee, believed to be in the region of £2million, will be handed straight to Leeds manager Simon Grayson in order to strengthen his squad for an assault on the Championship play offs.

Leeds lost the fight to keep hold of their star, after Snodgrass handed in a written transfer request on 2nd January.(17)(24)Snoddy hasn't handed in any transfer request and 2m won't get his servicesWhat a load of rubish,we turned down 3.5 for him in the summerDon't know if the 2M is accurate, suspect it will have add ons, but it would not surprise most people if Snodgrass was sold.Im a Leeds fan, but i know he hasnt handed in a transfer request... although, i live in Norwich, and i have heard that this rumour is true... but its for 4.7m... NOT 2m!
Should be completed on Friday morning.We definitely turned down 3.75m, rumoured also to have turned down 5m, but now we've accepted 2m? What a load of rubbish. Snoddy won't be sold in January, mark my words.No Its 2up front and the other is addons
like if he gats in the Scotland squad and plays 30 first team for Norwich first teamRemember how much wolves paid for Adam Hamill from Barnsley? He couldn't lace Snodders boots... We could easily get 4/5 million for him... And he's a Scotland international regular too!Its amazing Norwich in the prem and they think they can buy anyone
You need to get realIf it happened ken Bates would be f'ked - were already nearly at revolution point - selling our best players (especially to cannon fodder like norwich) would cause a mass leeds riotSnodgrass wouldn't be able to pass a medical cause he is recovering from surgery and if he had handed in a written transfer request we would have heard all about it so stop posting rubbish. MotLambert brought snodgrass through as a young lad at livingstone , not saying its true but they still have a good friendshipA lot of people make rubbish up on this site.snods is close to new 4yr deal at leeds,according to the os.Anybody who posts details of proposed contract details such as appearances for country and min league games is talking rubbish. Unless you're the agent or manager/director you won't get to know this. All it proves is you play Football manager! 90% of the carp on here is people's fantasies! Good entertainment however :)'Remember how much wolves paid for Adam Hamill from Barnsley? He couldn't lace Snodders boots... We could easily get 4/5 million for him... And he's a Scotland international regular too!'

firstly wolves paid 500k for hammill. And secondly hammill was doing a lot more than your snodgrass is doing now, 4.7m!! dream on !Cannon Fodder like Norwich ? , take a look at the leagues mate, how many years did you stay in Div1, time to wake up and realise you are not the Leeds team of old, and are no longer a major force, crowds great but you need a good team to get into premier again.

Snodgrass Price will be dictated by many things, does he want to leave? 18 months left on contract, so his value will fall if you keep him till end of season !
and unless he signs a new contract with you his price will continue to fall.
Will Bates pay the kind of salary required to keep your best players, I doubt that, hence you have already had a few go on free transfers because they would not sign new contracts.Remember how much wolves paid for Adam Hamill from Barnsley? He couldn't lace Snodders boots... We could easily get 4/5 million for him... And he's a Scotland international regular too!'

you won't get much when he's injured


05 Jan 2012 03:12:05
Defoe to the magpies(5)(15)Too old, too much, no resale value and doesn't want to come!It its a swap for Demba BaSure it is because that happens all the time. Get this through your head Mike Ashley is only interested in Money, what money is there is an old striker Spurs don't want and don't say Defoe plus cash.... he doesn't want to come here, so he wouldn't agree to personal terms... therefore any deal would be dead.


05 Jan 2012 02:58:42
Bolton have agreed a fee of £750k to sign Luciano Becchio from Leeds United. This transfer is subject to Leeds agreeing a fee with Bristol City for Nicky Maynard. The Robins are holding out for £2m, which may cause Leeds to drop out of the deal with their latest offer of £1.5m deemed insufficient. Bolton have given Leeds until Friday to close the deal or they will look elsewhere to boost their attacking options.(5)(20)Yeah right. Dream on! Maynard won't go to Leeds!750k for one of our 2 main strikers who has 2 1/2 years left to run on his contract?No chance will maynard go too leeds!!!!Maynard will go to prem and becchio wont leave leedsMaynard would jump at chance of playing for leeds but becchio will not be sold.I'm Leeds fan. Becchio ain't premiership quality. Like the guy for the important goals he's scored for us but lets be realistic 750K would be good money for him.


05 Jan 2012 02:51:28
Anzhi have reportedly offered odemwingie 180k a week which is over 4x the amount he gets at wba bye odemwingie!(4)(14)Yeah they have but HE TURNED THEM DOWN weeks ago.......Anzhi offered 160,000 a week to Odemwingie,He recently signed a new contract worth 50,000 a week at Baggies
plus he dont get bananas and abuse hurled at him,as he did when he last played in Russia ! If he wants to go back to the dark ages in Russian football just for personal greed then in my opinion he deserves everything that he getsOverated one good seasonYeah right and anzhi offered 300k a week to there groundsman too

Non league Luton grafting midfielder, Keith Keane is also one of Shezza's targets for Town(4)(4)Your welcone to take Showumni off us although not sure how much use he will be as he has a broken leg........great bit of business for Tranmere tho.I can't see Andy Scott being interested in Jack Lester. Too old beyond the end of the season.

marc pugh to join burnley the [claret's].local lad coming home.(5)(6)I agree would be excellent signing for burnley,up the clarets.When?
He's got over 18 months left on current contract, has a better one on the table, and would cost Burnley a lot of money (considerably over 1.5m) as Bournemouth don't like dealing with Howe now and don't need the money.
Not sure Burnley can afford him and not sure Bournemouth will bow to pressure and sell cos they don't have to now


05 Jan 2012 00:18:07
Busy time at the Hawthorns regarding transfers. West brom will sell quite a few players although they have an injury crisis. Expect roman bednar, marc-antoine fortun and Gabriel tamas all to be definite departures. Also, west brom will do a straight swap with Birmingham for Ben foster with boaz myhill and Chris wood making permanent switches to the blues. All the reports about odemwingie and olsson are false, they are both happy at the club in the meantime and will only seek a move if a much bigger successful club comes looking there way, but that is the same with all footballers, at least these two have the honesty to admit it. West brom will be signing various players including Scott Allan for £400, 000. They will also try and bring in another striker with the likes of jelavic, andy Johnson and nicky Maynard being considered along with quite a few from other leagues that have been on albions radar for quite some time my source tells me. Finally, the baggies are looking to fill each position for first team spots in midfield and cover for nicky shorey at left-back. One last thing, Roy hodgson is keeping a close eye on the clubs youth academy to grab a few promising talents to give a try. With many of them on loan it is the perfect opportunity for them to prove their worth to the boss like James hurst, George Thorne, Sam mantom, Paul downing, saido berahino, elford-alliyu, kemar roofe just signed his first pro contract with the club too so exciting times for Albion fans!!(6)(16)

2 - if Torres gets back to the form of his first couple of Liverpool season yes he is many times better then Ba. Current for probably notHaha when torres rediscovers his form he wont have the pace anymore and will be nearly ready to retire

Talks between Stoke City and Manchester City regarding Nedum Onuoha are said to be at an advanced stage.
Nedum has been given options and has ruled out moving his mother away from the Manchester area, this then narrowed down his options to 2. Bolton and Stoke are said to be the only other suitable options. Onuoha is said to be in favour of the stoke move due to Europa League football and the current league position of the established team. A £2.5 Million fee is said to be enough to get the service of the pacey defender.

Also at Stoke Hoillet looking highly likely to come in and add competition with Pennant and Etherington.

Els(12)(7)QPR will wade in and take them bothSeems QPR fans think if you pay over the odds on transfers and wages players will automatically sign, the reality is that some players actually care about the quality of football played and the management, so don't assume all these players will jump at the chance to join QPR especially since they look like relegation contenders based on current form.

Friend who works in Posh Commercial Office tells me that Peterborough will make a club record bid this week for a forward, currently playing in League1.
Could well be May from Stevenage.

Strong rumours about Lewis and Bennett.

Bennett to Bolton if Cahill goes( £3m) and Lewis to Southampton or Hull(£1m) both with add ons

Lots of enquiries about Taylor but nothing concrete yet. Hasn't signed new contract because agent thinks he can get him a big deal awy from London Road(2)(2)I,d be very surprised if Hull City were interested in Lewis as we have just brought in Vito Mannone from Arsenal until the end of the season and now have 4 keepers.Hull City are looking to add a keeper on a permanent, Mannone doesn't have the best injury record, Gulacsi could be out long term, Basso can't play more than 45 minutes without his leg falling off and Oxley has the back of an 80 year old woman. I doubt 1m will be spent on one though.

Kaka from Real Madrid on a permanent or loan deal(5)(36)Hummels on a loan deal .... , Kaka no way, he will stay in madrid...With Subotic injured and Dortmund in close contention for the BL title why on earth would they loan out Hummels?
They simply won't do itHere they come, the prawn sandwich brigade. If its not working.....throw money at it, typical Man U.Wishfull glory hunnting thinking. Provided me woth a laugh though.All Manu for spending it is moving club on if it was not for players Manu bring in to game teams like hull would not have chance so befor u start calling them look at players in game from man uIs that not what every football team does? buy players to strengthen your squad?

fulham to bid £ 8 mill for newcastle star Demba ba(4)(41)He is worth twice that and why would he go to team that are struggling when big teams would love a chance to sign himBa is locked in where he is for a long while no matter how well he does. Newcastle would want a great deal for him (especially in January) and no team is going to shell out 15m+ on a striker with his injury past. So as long as he stay fit, Newcastle have won the lotto (free signing), everyone else missed their chance.


04 Jan 2012 21:01:23
Wesley hoolahan is coming back to blackpool in a deal that will see Matt Phillips go the other way.(2)(23)Were did you get thisfrom! never will hoolahan leave norwich to go bk to you wow people ruin this site with lies like that. this is as funny as the 1 involving michael owen. SUPERHOLTYou might be right bout one thing, matt phillips is possible target. but Wes back in the championship, thats laughable.This wont happen. Hoolahan wont go back to Blackpool and Phillips wont move to Norwich unless they bid silly money as hes only been here a year and we paid nearly 1m for him.
Thanks for Gilks best keeper in the championship by a mile325,000 we payed for him actuallyThis is a very silly rumour. Hoolahan isn't even that good. He's too lightweight and he wastes too much possession and dwells on the ball too much. Plus he's a liability as he is out every night night pissing it up. I would be suprised if a premiership team comes in for Phillips as he has been so inconsistent this season. He's only had about 2 decent games.Bpool dont need hoolahan and he wont go back there, as for matt philips if he goes will be to a big club (sorry norwich)at end of season.


04 Jan 2012 20:56:59

Mark Stimson has resigned as manager of Kettering as speculation sees him linked with the job at Bristol rovers. Seen at the club this evening possibly to sign a deal to take over. Would be a good catch even until the end of the season as previous success with Stevenage and gillingham. Also a name mentioned is Steve tilson. Both of these managers mentioned would bring a new lease of life to the club still trying to aim for the playoffs now that automatic promotion looks uncertain(6)(3)Geraint Williams is to be interviewed.

jelavic to sign for west brom for a fee in the region of 5.5mil and with the money rangers will sign leigh griffiths nacho novo(free) and make kyle bartleys move permanent(3)(17)Jelavic is also wanted by liverpool..As a gers man the way big jelavic is playin the now i think we would be lucky to get 5.5m for him. However, Ally will not sell for anything less than 7. As for the ins, griffiths wont be a target, wee nacho is definatley a possibilty after Ally stated he wouldn't rule anything out after he impressed in training over the Christmas perios while he was back home in Scotland. After Jelavic is sold, IF any of it is put into a transfer budget, it wont be used to make Bartley a perminant Rangers player, but to find a cheap replacement untill the case with HMRC is settled.Big step backward then lolIn other words celtic for the trebleWon't sell for less than 7 million ? Will sell for anything the bank tell them to sell for.Keep dreaming you balloon.What's it got to do with the bank, we don't owe them anything?

Charlton are set to sign West Brom defender Joe Mattock on loan until the end of the season. Mattock is wanted by a number of Championship sides but the former England under 21 full back is keen on working with Chris Powell, of whom was Mattock's idol.
Another player set to leave Albion is goalkeeper Luke Daniels. The former England youth international is in talks with League 1 side Leyton Orient after the London side had a bid accepted permanently over last weekend.

No way are Orient signing Luke Daniels. We've got two fantastic young keepers in Lee Butcher and Jamie Jones (not to mention academy keeper Tom Lovelock) so why would we sign a player who never really proved himself in League 1 and is having a poor season in League 2?(4)(6)

Celtic 22 year old Ki could be on his way to Aston Villa in a deal worth £6m + Cuellar.

heard it hear first!
Kazzaa(9)(13)Not wanting to offend OP but no way mate for a number of reasons:-

Celtic have 4 international level RB's - way too many imo don't need another RB.

Cuellar is ex Rangers - does he need that nonsense in his life crossing the divide?

Makes sense that ex Rangers manager might look at SLP for good deals but tbh Celtic don't need to sell, Ki is a developing talent well known across Europe, we'll prob hang on til summer for the extra sheckle and flog him abroad for 10m like McGeady. Who knows eh?

ShaunybhoyCuellar is never a right back, that's why Celtic interested!! God.......
Has always been a cb until he went to villa then went downhill!!So you read the Daily Record? must be true then haha, Celtic wont sell 1 of their Young Talents for cheap, not when they dont have to, especially in the middle of the season..and cuellar is a CB and past it! hail hail

Nicky Maynard could join Wolves in the next 5 days and says an ideal move would be the Barclays Premier League(12)(21)Rangers will in no uncertain circumstances get 10mil for jelavic.....Liverpool will be making another mistake by paying big money for a big striker!! 6 mil max10 mil 4 Jelavic?

You saints fans ned to get a reality check.What are you smoking - 12m!!- more like 500k12m? you're having a laugh .. you'll get 4m maximum & be happy with that!Straight swap for krusty the clown at least you will have something to smile about, has you slip down the table he will fit in with the rest of the clowns at southampton12 mill 4 Schniederlin & u quibble about 4mill 4 Jay Rod - absolute cuckoo12M or he's not going anywhere. Simple. None of you ignorant persons believed that sum for Chamberlain either. We don't want or need to sell any of our best players so if your desperate then get your cheque books out or shut up.Im a saints fan and yes 12m is ridiculous ,but we are still there at moment and will strengthen so we will still be in the hunt come april. watch this spaceThat may not be what he's worth, in you oppinion. But that's the sort I fee it would take to get him to leave Saints.
Otherwise Cortese will but it straight in the bin12m? you can't be serious! i suppose you think that lambert would only be sold in a straight swap for ronaldo? southampton fans need a reality check.Saints fans, make me laugh, 12,000,000 for a untried and untested hunk of junk, think your point is in the wrong the place pal 1,200,000 it would've made more sense if you'd put Cortese doesn't need to sell so will reject all bids.You are missing the point. His value, whether 12p or 12M, is irrelevant unless it really is stupid money that's offered and the same applies for all important members of Saints relatively thin squad at this time. By saying we need a reality check you are, in fact, simply demonstrating your ignorance.Alex Chamberlain was not tried and tested in the Premier League, he had had one decent season in League One, it is rumoured that Arsenal's original bid was 3m and Cortese would not budge. We all know he eventually went for 12m-15m... However, Schneiderlin is not worth 12m. He's good, but not that good!Im a saints fan and i would happily let schneiderlin go! if i got offerd 2 million for him i would be happy to pack his case

A slump in form, with Town dropping to 5th place, plus a cup shock exit at Swindon has raised temperatures at the Galpharm Stadium.

Looks like jay rod is back in the picture for coming to saints where as nicky Maynard is not coming to saints(7)(12)Interesting, Jay Rod is a Burnley lad but if he does not progress his career in the next 2-3 years he will only ever be "a Burnley lad". Mate is a Burnley fan and was genuinely concerned about Jay Rod's future. A point he has (until now ) always said lies with Burnley !If rod leaves burnley he will go the prem not to saints or leic. Your just prem wanna be's thats ab as close as ìt will get 4 these 2 club'sJay would cost you more than Wickham, which was 8m .. Wickham scored 9 goals in a season and got bought for that price, Jay has 12 already this season and turned down southampton himself on deadline day last year .. if he leaves it's premiership ladsYeah whatever fella! typical of a saints fan these days is this along with the other 6 strikers your rumoured with including charlie austin!! get a grip


04 Jan 2012 17:14:38
sunderland manager martin oniel is to make changes this january with players coming in and out of the club.
oniel is looking to add 4-5 new faces to the squad with a number of positions he feels need stregnthening.firstly oniel is ready to move for villa defender james collins.another defender he wants to sign is blackburns martin olsson.further forward oniel will again move for his former skipper petrov and wants to bring in either kranjkaer or piennar from spurs on an initial loan.striking options include jelavic from rangers and westhams carlton cole.
players leaving the club are kieran richardson who is off to west brom,defender titus bramble looks set to join swansea and striker noble is off on loan to derby(4)(13)Very specific! Are you actually MON himself?
I'm not impressed by Olssen or indeed Jelavic/C Cole - far better options out there!Samba good target cause got ariel threat and would go well with larssons free kicks. olsson has also but he crap jelavic and cole well there just abbismale. GET SOMEONE LIKE PAVLYUCHENKO ONIELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is sunderland, where's the cash comin' from?Interested as Ginge Collins has been asked if he's prepared to go to Blackburn in part-ex for Samba going to Villa. He is not interested in that deal but I can see him leaving Villa soonPetrov isn't leaving Villa but Collins shall.Who ever said that about pavlyuchenko their right hes a goalscorer and a is not tall or small and hope we do get sambaPienaar isnt to goodSign a left back. when oniell came he got a region of 15 million to 20 million so will be happy if we get collins and samba and would play collins right back and samba and brown in the middle. play 4 5 1 and vaughan gardner and petrov in the middle larsson right pienarr left. stepphanne sessegnon good but get rid of him to get around 7 million. anyway sessegnon sometimes is a bit ball greedyWant petrov more than collins

podoloski for arsenal(6)(15)Im sure Arsenal will be linked with many strikers. Question is , does Podolski come in unde Wenger's "cheap" price tag....Podolskui wont be moving anywhere till july...he said he isnt moving and risking his germany he will wanna see where liverpool and arsenal r next season b4 he decidesWell liverpool wont be anywhere in europe unless they go on a ciggy/bifta run they have the most deluded fans in epl we might sell u pav the flop your days has being classed as a big team are over?Who do you support mate I'd like to no you shouldn't have said Liverpool wasn't a big team any more hahah u just shot your self in the foot you plankI don't think you can argue that Liverpool are no longer a big team, they are and always will be, the trouble they have is there are now far better and superior teams that they are competing with and Liverpool sadly for them are one of the least attractive proposition's now out of the bigger clubs.

Well done Skivo(6)(4)O'brien has pace to burn but is injury prone and his final ball is alot to be desired as we found out at Swindon last season.
He's better off going back to Scotland.Alan o'brien, never heard of him but sounds like he'd fit straight right in at Walsall, we only sign crocked, past it, or have been players on free transfers.Now that's not true, Ipswich are the only club that signs has beens, and over 31 age players

Super Hoops will be back in the Championship come end of this season.Read up on the latest news: Bent not for sale at any price!.Villa are relegation candidates plus they have a terrible manager who won't use bent to his full ability preferring to play Heskey so its possible he might fancy a moveMessage to Villa fans. If the badge is kissed then be ready for DB to leave.Since when has McLeish preferred to use Heskey instead of Bent! And as for relegation candidates...QPR are a much worse team!

Millwall Chairman John Berylson has been in contact with Roy Keane regarding taking over as Manager from Kenny Jackett.

Keane was spotted at Ashton Gate lastnight.(2)(11)Well if this happens i will feel very sorry for any Millwall fans, as this twk ruined Ipswich, and there's a good relationship with Millwall and Ipswich exchange of players, dont let Keane anywhere near your clubThat's strange I thought Millwall played at the New Den SE London, Brizzle City play at Ashton GateBristol city do, but milwall played bristol city last night. THINK before you commentMillwall played bristol city last night do u no anything about football?Thin paul jewell is doing a better job of taking ipswich to league 1 than keane didWe dont need a new manager we need our chairman to spend some more moneyYep your right The Lions did play at Brizzle City last night, Doh, Oh and have some respect its spelt Millwall

Oldham Athletic are set to lose long serving midfield man Chris Taylor with Reading looking like they could get him on a 675k deal plus add ons. Oldham will use some of the money to sign in form non-league striker Jamie Vardy from Fleetwood Town for a bid in the margin of 250k-400k, Vardy seems very interested in the offer with him staying in the north west and chance to play at wembley.

From a football agent(2)(12)Vardy will not go to Oldham for that piddly amount, Fleetwood have already turned down 1 million pound+ offersIf fleetwood turn down west ham u no chanceOldham have no chance,1.5 mil is what is expected for Vardy you cud buy all Oldham with that.Not a chance, he wont leave for less than 1mil, either way Halifax are too in the money1.5 million for a Confrence player is laughableVardy is worth 500k tops, Blackpool had a scout looking at him most of the season but decided not to bid at all.Vardy is on a lot of clubs radar..Bury included.

cue the Saints.Maynard not interested in Wolves, he wants to go to the Premiership, I'm struggling with the response here, last time I looked they were in the Premiership, they'll probably go down but at time of writing they are in the Premiership, either you're very stupid or your attempt at a pathetic joke was indeed poor.Maynard not interested in wolves.he says he wants to go to a premiership club.

Swindon town are close to announcing the signing of Mcleod from Barnet, the deal is unlikely to be completed before they play each other in the JPT area final, but it will be completed before the transfer window closes with Kerouche moving the opposite way to Barnet and Commazi being loaned for the remainder of the season with Swindon paying 100% of his wages, there will also be 250k cash to Barnet.(2)(8)I'd like to see Kerrouche stay as he is a good player but he does seem a bit tempermental and is out of favour at the moment but is our top scorer.
Paolo doesnt muck about when we play as he di with Kerrouche in the fa cup against Colchester and took him off after 25 minutes as Paolo felt he wasnt putting enough effort into the game.

Redknapp has indicated that he may well agree to the sale of Modric in order to get the go ahead to sign new players.

Redknapp wants to strengthen the spine of the Spurs team with a new centre-half, a new midfielder and a new forward.

Kaka is available for 30 million Euros and Redknapp is also keen to sign another forward to cover for the misfiring Defoe and Pavlycenko. Podolski is on Harry's wanted list to score goals and Harry is also keen to clinch the signing of Samba for £8 million.

Podolski (despite some ill-informed comments on here) is stalling on a new deal, thus attracting interest from Premier clubs.

Redknapp is keen to sustain Spurs' outside chance of a Champions League place but may have to sell first - Modric is a target for Spurs but both Levy and Redknapp are determined to keep Bale - although rumours persist that Bale wants to leave(8)(18)This is nonsense. And I'm not even a Spurs fan!Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrubish ! Much loveWhy can i ask is it only an outside chance of spurs being in the champions league spot come the end of the season? when we are 5 points clear of chelsea with a game in hand and only 3 points behind united?Rubbish!Bale is not a greedy player so i doubt he want's to leave, I went to school witrh him and used to alk to school with him every day. He had a lot of interest from chelsea and man utd but decided to stay at southampton to getModric is a target for spurs what are you on about, the whole of your statement is bull.Load of crap, Bale will only shine at Spurs.I hate Spurs but I think if you got 40m or whatever for Modric it would be good to strengthen the defence of spurs.Haha bale and moderic will be off spurs is not a big team they will never stay there when the likes of man u and man city come calling unlucky spurs fans you were never a top four team anyways haIm not a spurs fan but you what a load of carp your comment is there?, money aside, why would bale and modric leave a team that is playing the best football in the country,will definatly get champions league and have a slim title chance?

Southampton will tie up a deal to take David Elm on a one-month loan deal to cover the absence of suspended Rickie Lambert. This will be an attempt to keep an aerial threat up front.(2)(15)Who? PS.

Adam Lallana to Man Utd.

SAF has kept his cards close to his chest regarding Saints latest wonderkid. Having scouted him for a couple of years now, he's about to make a move for an English player he feels is the closest long term prospect of filling the Paul Scholes slot.
Lallana who overcame a serious injury last year, has come back into the Southampton team and been the catalyst for their rise to the top of the Championship.
Lallana has been capped at every youth level for England and a senior call up is on the cards with Saints looking more than likely to gain promotion to the Premiership, and Fergie knows that to wait until the summer will see Lallana's value rise.
United want to pay around £5 million, but Saints are holding out for double that, and tentative discussions have been opened to see if a deal can be reached.(10)(16)Whilst im sure that if Utd really come knocking it would be hard to say no... I dont believe Utd would be looking at lallana - he aint no Paul Scholes - he's more Lionel Messi - as per his song at St. Mary's!Wolves looked at buying lallana last transfer window but believe mccarthy is more interested in CM and CB roles in januaryIm sure adam lallana would rather warm uniteds bench than become a local hero and legend when saints are promoted....
what a load of guff!Load of bull, Lallana will never leave Southampton, he recently said on twitter after making his 150th appearance "Was a great game to make my 150th start for the club, hopefully hundreds more to come. Would love to be a #saint4life''I am a saints fan and as good as Lallana is, i am sorry he is no united player, i find it hard to beleive this rumour to be true.I'm also a Saints fan and find it impossible to believe. Lallana, Schneiderlin, Lambert, Fonte. Wonder who is next and who is posting these rumours?I think people need to live in the real world and accept that footballers occasionally may tell lies. Do you really think Lallana would put on twitter, what a great game to play in for my 150th appearance but now I want to leave and join a bigger club? Erm, no, footballers say what fans want to hear (well the sensible one's do) and although yes I agree that Lallana may be a Saints fan and love the club if a team like Man Utd come calling, you won't see him in Southampton for the dust of his Ferrari, but personally whilst pushing for promotion I can't see him leaving yet.Im a saints fan and lallana wouldnt even get on there bench! he has hardly put in a good performace for saints in the last 3 months

Berylson has been reported as being a huge fan of Keane ever since his days with Manchester United.(3)(9)Dont bother with Keane, just open your wallet and give Kenny some funds to buy the players he wants, as you will have to if RK takes over, trust me, if you Mr Berlyson dont intend on spending then you wont see RK for dust.

To the Swansea fan . This is the Swans first season and they are doing well , good passing team . Staying in for any length of time is very tough , especially if the club you support does not have large finances or abig fan base . My team Wigan have stayed in the prem for 7 years , which by anyones standards is remarkable considering finances etc .When you have been in for 7 consecutive seasons then you may be able to start bragging . JRF Wigan and Proud .(10)(5)You are joking mate? Considering your average attendances,how much has dave whelan bankrolled you for? without his money you would have been relegated long ago.Amazing how Martinez got so much praise for taking Wigan from a solid Mid table side to relegation candidates too.

Loved how he was beeing hailed as a hero for taking the club backwards.

Swansea tickets like gold dust - Every game virtually at capacity.........Wigan??Because staying in the premier league with a transfer deficit of around 5m for 2 years is not an achievement at all when you consider the money spent at West Spam / Birmingham, and the best thing about being a wigan supporter its the system of play that keeps us up and any player in the team can come in so when we eventually sell our assets we have younger players ready to come and fill the void ... think Nzogbia, then think Moses to of the most exciting wingers in the league, as soon as nzogia leaves his performances drop ... so keep the lame digs coming they really do make me chuckle. heres something to chew on, wigan are one of the very few teams NEVER to be relegated from the top division

the most expensive player in english
history by making a mouthwatering
45m pound bid for the welshman.
spurs are against the idea but it is
thought the deal will be go ahead
in the summer.

not makebelieve i have proved on here
before i speak in fact.

mark my words bale for man utd 2012/13

remeber who said it 1st
castlemilkbhoy67(15)(21)If Bale ever moves in the future it will be to Barca but he's happy at Spurs and will be staying this season and next at the very least.Says the guy that thinks Rhodes plays for Hull and Maynard for Bristol or Birmingham ha you're a retardAbsolute nonsense. Fergie had the option of signing Bale before he moved to Spurs and didn't take it. And having just invested heavily in Ashley Young in the summer Bale is not needed.Most expensive player in english transfer history at 45m? not quite, torres?Back to your buckfast mate

celtic january targets.

1 striker from=
1st choice.baba diawara(maritimo) 4.5m
2nd choice.jordan rhodes(hull) 4m
3rd choice. nicky maynard (b.c) 1.5m

other possibilities being talked about
are simon cox, ricky lambert and
craig makaill smith. there is money
available for a striker

other targets.
david templeton (hearts)
marion kello (hearts)
raffik halliche (fulham)

i also have it in good knowledge that
celtic have had early talks about signing
grant hanley from blackburn next summer
and the player is very keen on the move.

castlemilkbhoy67 (the original)(1)(14)2nd choice.jordan rhodes(hull) 4m mmmmmmmm he play ffor huddersfield townRhodes plays for huddrsfield so lets put your rumours to the side lol

daviebhoy08Rhodes plays for Huddersfield not HullRhodes plays for Huddersfield, Maynard valued at a it more and Makail smith transferred at start of season so probably not move just yet. More chance the hearts players though,Rhodes plays for Huddersfield milkboyGet ya facts rite b4 u make these fancy rumours bhoy. since wen did rhodes become a hull player(they wish) let me help ya little fella. rhodes is a huddersfield town player. "fact". agHa castlemilkbhoy thats a funny yin & it's no even april fools day. rhodes fur 4 mill diawara 4.2 where are celtic goin tae get the money for themThe scottish leagues are dead.. why would you move north of the border? NO POINT.May as well join in 'rhodes plays for huddersfield' Even after the last 6 comments that said 'rhodes plays for huddersfield' think it's time i pointed out that rhodes plays for huddersfield in my imo important opinion.Scottish leagues are dead, just like any1 can win the EPL, how many titles has Man United won in the last 20 years?, 2 horse race every year!Scottish leagues are dead - epl is dead, best league in europe? what has happened in europe this year? plenty of players in old firm could easily fit into most epl teams, particularly celtic. ki asian player of year, forrest on top 100 young players list. kayal, izzaguere, ledley, hooper, matthews, mcgregor... dont slate it when you have no idea..


04 Jan 2012 14:33:43

liverpool have had a 16.5m bid for
spartak moscow winger aiden mcgeady
accepted by the russian club.

remember where you heard it 1st

castlemilkbhoy67(5)(15)16.5 million for Mcgeady, not a hopeThis fool has been having a late New Years Eve party.They paid 20mil for henderson dont count them out! they always pay over the oddsI've read a few of this guys posts now, I really hope he isn't taking his own rumours that he is making up himself seriously.What a load of rubbish,not worth half that,one trick pony16.5m for him.ha ha ha haU need to get a grip pal35m for Carroll, 20 for Henderson, 20 for downing, proves they pay over the odds, plenty goals scored by these 3 so far, and not a mention about King Kenny being and his transfer dealings, 75m on these proves his ability in the transfer marketWas it 35 mill for carroll then it must be about 70 mill for mcgeady twice the player he would walk in to any of the top six

Fridays game at Wycombe will be Lee Clarks last as Huddersfield manager, meanwhile Chairman Dean Hoyle is already sounding out possible replacements with Roberto Di Matteo being the top of many fans list.(6)(6)If the cup exit at Swindon was a shock, it was only because you are so up your own arses nobody looked at Swindon and their form. It was no suprise in Wiltshire.Heard he could be heading to Ipswich when Jewell gets the chop this month


04 Jan 2012 13:57:06
QPR are looking to sign both Alex and Nedum Onuoha from Chelsea and Manchester City respectively with both fees believed to be in the region of £3 million.
The Andy Johnson rumour refuses to go away and it appears Neil Warnock will make a bid of around £1 million rather than the widely quoted price of £2 million.
Jelavic of Glasgow Rangers is still being looked at but the price tag of £10 million is seen as absurd for a completely unproven player and Warnock could turn to Tottenham's Roman Pavlyuchenko on a loan deal running to the end of the season with a view to buy depending on whether the club survive relegation.(2)(8)Pav?? Think Warnock would slap him for lack of effort.

Word around Liverpool is that they are closing in on a striker which many believed to be Darren Bent but I have heard that they are very close to completing a £17m deal for Lukas Podolski. Galatasary have made an approach for Dirk Kuyt and are wiling to pay up to £6m for the Dutch International. Alberto Aquilani is another player who could leave Anfield this January, he is expected to complete a permanent £6.7m switch to AC Milan within the next couple of weeks. Liverpool have been monitoring Ibrahim Affellay who is reportedly unhappy at the Nou Camp and with the likes of Villa,Pedro,Sanchez competing for the same position his days in Spain look numbered, Liverpool are considering an £8m move.(7)(4)Sorry buddy this seems unreasonable. Dirk wort more than 6m and a fan favorite, bent fails when he is not the star of the team, and affellay not unhappy, hes sidelined with a knee injury and surgery that hapenned in SeptAfellay isn't unhappy at Barca he's just injured and is still a way off being ready to return, but he has said he's very happy thereYou are dreaming again.I hope dirk goes to be honestYour dreaming as Podolski wont be moving until the summer until his place at the Euro's is guaranteed and the only English club to show firm interest is Arsenal. Get real!

just aload of crap, it will never happen, no-one is for sale at celtic, unless they want SamarasVilla dont win anything because there are more than 2 teams in the english prem. rubbish scottish football who would want to stay up there is the question.Thats correct chappie but there are only 4 teams in the epl ever likely to win anything man u, chelsea, arsenal and man city and even at that arsenal struggle and man city have only won 1 trophy in donkeys years and for villa ginger nut mcliesh will take you down then you can have your derby again with birminghamYes there are more than 2 in your league same as you have 10x our population..But remember only Man U are bigger than the Old Firm..the rest are wee boys!Not many more than 2 teams cmon the gersHow many EPL teams would win anything if they had to live within their means? as in not have 500m of debt ect, celtic live within their means and invest in youth. and 6m is a derisory offer for koreas players of the year! hail hail

Can't believe that when I posted that a £900k bid for Jamie Vardy from West Ham got rejected didn't get posted! After all, I was quoting their chairman in the non-league paper!! The one in January of £1m+ will be rejected as well, according to their chairman. Will probably go in the summer though, for a hefty sum. League 1 pretty soon for the Cod Army methinks. {Ed001's Note - it was posted, I did it myself, I have also been making that same point on the Wednesday site when they tried to link him to them for a third of the amount. Though I can't see it using the search myself, so maybe the server had a brain fart, this one doesn't seem to like my laptop and keeps timing out when I try to edit from it.}(2)(5)No non league footballer could ever be worth a million, complete rip off if thats the case no matter what record he has.

Leeds set to sign michael dawson on loan for rest of the season as he is just returning from injury and needs match fitness and with the form of current spurs cb's king , gallas and kaboul with bassong as cover , dawson will not be needed!

would be a good signing(11)(4)This is not going to happen dawson is a loyal to spurs!He's not loyal he wants to get out of spurs asapUtter rubbish, gallass is now injured and bassong is shocking, plus dawson wont leave spursA) Gallas was injured last night
b) The King is always a bit dodgy with his knee
c) Dawson is captain and would never come to you on loan or otherwise
d) Bassong is hopeless so thats why he is on his way out.What a rubbish post - Dawson has been an integral part of Spurs for past few seasons. To say Bassong is ahead of him in the pecking order is a joke! Bassong to be sold or put out to loan this January. Dawson going nowhere!Sorry but that simply is not going to happen, Daws is in line to play in the cup and will then ease himself into the starting line up. With Gallas now injured and King never guaranteed to start he will be going nowhere, not that he was anywayUtter Nonsence - As if Leeds would be able to afford his wages until the end of the season ! Bates wont spend that much on one playerWhats being loyal got to do with going out on loan? going out on loan will help regain his fitness so he can then get back in the 1st team. DUH.Pure fantasy - and this from a Leeds fan.

Notts Forest manager, Steve Cotterill, has been warned that he must sell before he can buy. Forest are determined to remain within budget, especially with new financial rules imminent from UEFA.

Lewis McGugan is likely to leave Forest for £1.5 million with a number of interested clubs waiting to bid. Gunter is the obvious big target, with Fulham one of the clubs wanting him

Cotterill has joked he will drive Gunter to Fulham if they offer £10 million, such is the Forest need for cash. However, a fee of 4 million is being prepared: £2.5 million being paid over 6 months and the rest in clauses.

Forest need to reinforce as they battle relegation.(10)(5)Who are notts forest?Neighbours of Nottingham County.

Lee Johnson, Jon Stead, Nicky Hunt are amoung some of the players heading out.(2)(16)Lee johnson is a great player been on loan with us (chesterfield)Maynard to stay put... you're clutching at straws palIm not a Bristol City fan so not realy clutching anything, just giving you the inside information im getting. Lee Johnson is a good player just does not fit in with what is going on at city, if Gary Johnson gets the Bristol Rovers job i can see Lee going there.

Marcus Evans has been stung by the criticism that is now being directed at him and is on the verge of a major shake up.

Unpopular CEO Simon Clegg is to be replaced by solicitor, existing board member and MEG loyalist Ian Milne. Paul Jewell is to be replaced by former Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington.(3)(9)We dont need an ex failed budgie / Northern Ireland manager thank you, but i believe you could be right about Clegg's exit, Iain Milne certainly cant do any worse can he ??

Crystal Palace have reached an agreement with Admira Wacker for Martin Zeman, who will be over next week for a medical.
Siphwie Tshabalala has landed in England today for his trial at the club, if he and Zeman joins the club this will allow Keiron Cadogan to go out on loan to Swindon Town for the rest of the season to join fellow team-mate Wesley Fordingham.

I have also been told by a few sources close to the club that there are 1 or 2 players from Norway that Dougie Freedman is trying to conclude deals for. These names have not been released yet as to keep their identity's secret in case other clubs try to hijack the deals.(6)(5)It always adds to the believability when you get the name of your own player wrong !Tshabalala to palace , way out of palace's league he wud be able to play in the pl for like an evrton or sunderland^^ its been confirmed he is having a 10 day trial, and after his failed Forest days i doubt an Everton wold deem him good enough

Newcastle boss Pardew is looking to sign 3 players in January: a forward, a centre-half and a full back.

Pardew has again monitored Aly Cissoko but funds are in short supply at the Toon.

Demba Ba might be the shock exit from Newcastle, in order for Pardew to get the 3 players he urgently needs.(7)(15)What part of pardew saying we not after a striker in jan do geordies not understand, the lights on but nobody is home with themPardew also said carroll wouldn't leave last jan... anything can happen, could easilly just be playing it down to stop clubs trying to rip nufc off

Spurs are set to bid £30 million for Kaka. Redknapp wants Kaka and Podolski to bolster Spurs' outside chance of a Champions League place.

The £30 million price tag for Kaka and Spurs' interest have been widely reported in the press. However, Redknapp needs to sell first before Levy will sanction significant spending.

Although Modric has stated his intent to stay and Levy wants Modric to stay, on a point of principle, Redknapp has said openly that he would be prepared to let Modric go, if the money can be reinvested.

Chelsea remain keen on Modric, who will demand a similar fee to that of Kaka. Should Levy give in and let Modric go, Redknapp will be given the green light to move for Kaka and Podolski(9)(13)Toilet. Try again.Modric is better than KakaMain poster is either a Woolwich Wanderer or a Chavvi.Outside chance? shut up gooner, where u at, 5th. do oneShame that madrid said that he can go for22mil"Outside chance of a Champions League place"??
You Twt! Have you not seen the league table?
Agree with above that Modric is better than Kaka, also Podolski won't be going anywhere until the summer, his agent and Podolski himself have said so in the German press!Spurs have no interest in Podolski
Modric is not for sale and Spurs already rejected 40 mill for him in the summer
Spurs are interested in Kaka but it really depends on wages but that's the only bit of accuracy in this rumourLike I said spurs are a small team they are not a big team and once bale and moderic go in summer it's curtains they won't Evan make top six fact lol

alan mcgregor frm rangers to qpr for 5 million(11)(9)If gordon from hearts to sunderland was a 9 mil deal then mcshagger is worth at least 15 milHaha 10mill at least for the best keeper in europeUnlikely. He just signed a new contract. Try doubling that and you might get close - not that he wants to leave.Not a snowball in hell's chance of him leaving gers in this transfer window.Am a season ticket holder n rumours r rife that shagger jelavic n Davis r as headin oot the doorIm a bear and I have it on good authority hes goin and at 5mil we wont get much more for him sadly we are in trouble and have to get outa the mess with the tax manThat's about the ONLY sensible comment I've EVER heard from a 'bear' ........

Cahill's move to Chelsea is close to collapse. Cahiill wants £120,000 a week but Chelsea are refusing to match that.

Liverpool were interested but they can't afford the wage demands either.(13)(10)EPLs gone mad, no wonder there are so many great players acting like prima donna's Tevez, Rooney.....when is the money madness goin to stop? the overexagerrated fees and wages of these players is goin to their heads, some are to beleive they are bigger than their clubs, i just cant get enough..laughter


04 Jan 2012 11:19:25
Chelsea are closing in on Everton's Jack Rodwell. An enormous fee of £24 million has been muted, £ 4 million higher than recent reporting.

Everton are keen to exploit Chelsea's urgent need to reinforce their ageing squad.

The fee, like most fees, will be paid over a 6 month period. However, Moyes is unlikely to be able to spend on transfer fees but will be able to bring in 3 or 4 players on loan or free transfers.

Some money will be made available in the summer(15)(11)I feel sorry for everton, breeding club


04 Jan 2012 11:09:31
Norwich remain keen on signing a winger. Snodgradd was long a top target but attention has switched to Hoilet at Blackburn.

Blackburn are keen to recoup as much money as possible to offset their debt and don't want to lose Hoilet for free when his contract expires.

Blackburn made a tentative enquiry about getting Grant Holt as part of a £4 million deal but Norwich want to drive the cost down(7)(5)Complete toilet im afraid, sorry for the pun. IF he goes, expect top 6 to come into the frame


04 Jan 2012 11:05:56
Southampton still want another striker despite being close to signing Tadanari Lee. Coventry's Jutkiewicz is an option but Nicky Maynard is top of their wanted list.

Southampton received their final instalment from Arsenal from the Oxlade-Chamberlain deal (yes, it was paid in instalments, that is how most "up front" fees are paid) and are ready to reinvest during January.

Saints are hardly short of cash but the conclusion of the Oxlade-Chamberlain deal means they have plenty to spend.(15)(6)Jimmy kebe set to sign in a swap deal with puncheon plus saints paying another 500kMaynard is back in talks with bristol it would need to be big he has stated it will be premiership or stay till summer.

Pucheon is a Saints player... but will be a Leeds player by end of Jan!The days where Leeds spent 4mil on an outfield player, let alone a goalkeeper, are long gone. They will be active this window though.

Celtic are very interested in signing young Southend striker Matt Paterson. Paterson has previously been at Southampton as a youngster as well as Hamilton on loan and Neil Lennon is keen to sign the 22 year old on a long term contract. Paterson is wanted by a number of Championship teams.

(8) (11)

Completley unbelievable Paterson is nowhere near championship or celtic standards


As a southend fan I can honestly say he is one of the worst players to ever put on a Southend shirt and there has been a few. If this rumour is true the Celtic are planning life in scots division three


Paterson is a big Rangers fan, hence the thread! As a Stockport County fan I can say he's the best striker I saw at Edgeley Park last season! He had a magnificent debut and scored a humdinger - how he doesn't get a game for Southend i will never know. As for being the worst player you've ever seen at Southend - Blair Sturrock, I rest my case.

The Scarf


HaHa, well done Scarf! Would love to see Paterson back at Edgeley Park - a great young player with a great attitude and a big heart. Southend have mugged him off - Gannon sign him up please!


Understand he has turned down a L2 club to join a Conference side in time for this Saturday. Maybe it is Stockport, maybe not.


As an Accies fan just want to say that Pato scored a couple of crackers for us and won us at least 5 penalties! We didn't get to see enough of him because of a hamstring injury. Hope he finds a good club, great young lad.


Too all you Celtic, Stockport, Southend and Accies fans, I understand that Matt has turned down a L2 club and agreed to sign for Forest Green Rovers and play for his old Southampton Coach Dave Hockaday. Green Army!(15)(5)I know this site is full of crap but wanted by rangers and celtic haha

He is woeful, he hasnt been mugged off Tilson didnt want him he only came as part of the Barnard deal.As a Southend fan I thought Paterson looked a good player, scored a few goals and was then pushed to the side when Sturrock took over. These things happen in football, wherever he goes I wish him all the best.

04 Jan 2012 10:37:31
Stoke City to sign Hoilett either in Jan or by the Summer. Blackburn would want around £8-£9m for him, expect either Fuller or fringe player to go the other way. Maybe Upson if they sell Samba? Things not good behind the scenes at Blackburn. Stoke may also try to sign Diame.(8)(9)


04 Jan 2012 10:35:44
Good News for Southampton fans !! I have just been in Halfords and they've got a sale on all puncture repair kits.......50% OFF !!(13)(10)Is the bubble repairable?? :)A burst bubble at the top of the league....shows how poor the rest are then....How do you repair a bubble with a puncture repair kit you mug
......agreed on how st are the rest of you....we are playing badly and losing and STILL Top of the LeagueThis poster must be one of our fishy friends from alomg the coast, as he has also put it on the daily echo siteNot for much longerJust! But not for long the others are gaining ground quick....I think the first wheel as come off, puncture kit no good

Aston Villa are after Chelsea's out of favour defender Alex. Villa are set to be selling James Collins to Premier League opposition QPR, feel Alex would but a suitable replacement.(8)(11)This is completely untrue as Alex is currently in talks with QPR. Villa would never pay that much in wages anyway.


04 Jan 2012 10:30:58
Ipswich manager Paul Jewell is keen on signing Leicester's out of favour centre back St Ledger. Ipswich had an innitial offer rejected from Preston back in the Summer but blues boss Paul Jewell is keen on bringing him to Portman Road.

Ched Evans along with Chris Whelpdale are on Paul Jewell's radar with Jewell making enquiries about the pair.(8)(7)Due to svens habit of paying players 20%-30% more than their worth, NP will have the devils own job getting them out of the club.


04 Jan 2012 10:22:38
My source in the SBR stand says Blackpool have come in for Jason Scotland. IT were looking at £150k for him, but BFC have bid £250k!!(8)(6)

Spurs are weighing up a move for West Ham's James Tomkins, with Gary Cahill seemingly on his way to Chelsea and Chris Samba proving too expensive.(9)(8)Could be some truth 2 this rumour joe jordan has been seen at upton park a couple of times spurs dont like to pay out 4 players and west ham are short at the back so would be reluctant to let him go


04 Jan 2012 10:14:44
Supposibly Kevin Doyle to Manchester UNited for £7.2. (He desrerves a break)(5)(17)I would think that Doyle would go for more than 7.2 million, and that it would be someone other than Manchester United in for him. Fergie ruled out a January move, if United did actually go for someone it would be in the midfield or defensive and they're well stocked on strikers already.Just because he deserves a break, Doesnt mean United are going to sign him. I agree he does deserve a break but he will never be play for United, just doesnt have the quality.



04 Jan 2012 10:13:28

Gotze... One of the best young midfielders who can have his pick of any club in the world... Is going to a club that in ur words still needs to ensure their survival. Honestly thanks for thaAlright mate, honestly Ive been told Djemba Djemba has also been spotted at the Hawthorns, Not sure about the Gotze though, Djemba Djemba is a must at WBA!!Gotze valued at 30M + and has been linked to Man Utd, Real Madrid and Chelsea to name a few is going to Villa!!!! mmmm don't think soPapa Wogo? I think you mean Papa Waigo who was on-loan 2 seasons ago at Southampton. Good wide man, but as his song goes, 'he's always offside'.


04 Jan 2012 09:45:15
Southampton have confirmed on their OS that Tadanari Lee is in talks with Southampton, and is currently training with the club until a work permit is secured.

"The Sports Nippon reported the 26-year-old would join the side on England's south coast on a two-and-a-half-year contract with the annual salary £800,000, almost double what he earns with Hiroshima.

If Southampton get promoted to the Premier League this season, Lee's pay will shoot up to £1.2 million, the sports daily reported on its website."(12)(7)Dont know about the wages but lee is in the bag great news as he has a good rep in his own country hope he can be as good for us :)I got those numbers from the official Fifa website.
Go on newsnow Southampton and scroll down to find that article if you want confirmation.15.5K per week rising to 23k per week doesn't sound unrealistic


04 Jan 2012 09:42:15

erm Newcastle have "dismissed" Ipswich move and local journos say there's been no official approach for smith from anyone!Phew, that's a sigh of relief, the thought of yet another washed up 31 year old coming to Portman Road, we have enough all ready, we need some younger blood coming in, not one looking for their last pay cheque

04 Jan 2012 08:33:59
1.Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has been made aware of an offer for his services from former club Sunderland made on Tuesday morning directly to the Aston Villa chief executives office. Alex McLeish was consulted prior to Villa's affirmative response to the offer which it is believed would leave Villa showing a small profit upon the deal struck with Sunderland to take Bent to Villa Park. It is as yet not clear if Bent is persuaded a move back to Sunderland would be beneficial to him in a professional sense but financial terms are unlikely to prove a stumbling block and I believe Bent will meet Martin O'Neill on Thursday to discuss matters. Villa would move for Andy Johnson and Victor Moses.

2. West Bromwich Albion have approached Bristol City regarding signing Nicky Maynard. City boss Derek McInnes is well known to the Albion board and is believed to be keen on Albions bid which is modest in cash terms but would include the signature of striker Roman Bednar and the loan signing of Romanian international defender Gabriel Tamas. McInnes believes the deal would leave him with a stronger squad and lessen the impact of Maynards inevitable departure but Citys directors favour a straight cash deal which would not interest West Brom with Bednar out of contract in June. Meanwhile Albion have again rejected moves from Glasgow Rangers regarding Graham Dorrans.

3. Wolverhampton Wanderers would be prepared to offer Bristol City Sam Vokes as part of any deal for Nicky Maynard but again it is believed the Ashton Gate board are holding out for a cash deal and Vokes is likely to join Burnley instead,possibly on loan initially. Meanwhile Andy Keoghs move to Leeds should be completed shortly. Wolves may turn their attentions to a previously rejected Celtic bid for Kevin Doyle which would see Paddy McCourt and Joe Ledley move to Molinuex. Mick McCarthy discussed the possibility at Wolves pre-season friendly with Celtic last July but Celtics reluctance to include Ledley at the time left the proposal dead in the water. However,I understand that Celtic may have revised their position.

4. Birmingham City and West Brom are discussing the permanent transfers of Boaz Myhill and Chris Wood to St Andrews in a straight swop deal for Ben Foster. Albion are demanding a 'no cash' deal to make currently temporary arrangements permanent but Birmingham are insisting on a £1m 'makeweight'. They are unlikely to get it but may persuade Albion to smooth the deal by allowing youngster Sam Mantom to join them on a free transfer.(12)(11)Ledley will not be leaving they are in discussions about extending his contractKeogh not going to Leeds - not wanted we need betterI'm a sunderland fan and I've heard strong rumours about Bent coming back, I heard it was coz he fell out with bruce thats why he left, villa still owe sunderland 12m on the deal and we did have a 30% sell on fee so could be true about, he should never of left because he would of been a sunderland legend

whats the latest rumers for leeds ?(9)(11)Two defenders have been targetted, a) because of injuries and b) because we need new 'uns anyway. Don't think we are in for St. Ledger though, and he's the only one I've seen mooted. We are not in for Billy Sharp or any rubbish like that; he's rejected us already, being a Blades fan. The midfielder we are supposed to be signing to replace Howson for now will probably be on loan, like Townsend, unless we bid again for Sammy Clingan. It will not be Darron Gibson, thank God, as SAF does not deal with Leeds anymore, following his attempted mobbing earlier in the season. Tom Carroll could be an option with Spurs out of Europe. Finally, Leeds are now expected to complete the signing of Andy Keogh, and with Davide Somma returning soon, Billy Paynter is likely to leave.

As to a right-back, which we REALLY need now, I haven't the foggiest.

The perfect line-up for Chelsea after Jan. Transfer Window.

Bosingwa, Luiz, Cahil, Cole

Ramires, Essien, Modric

Sturridge, Neymar, Mata

Turnbull(5)(27)And pigs mite fly one day dream on only thing yous will be getting is a p45 for avbAll i can say is ..... good bye top 4 with that side.Why would modric move to you now...wishful thinkingNothing is perfect when you have Luiz in defenceModric - doubt it, his side is doing better than yours haha!!
Kaka - maybe but its wasted money provided he doesnt fulfill his desire to return to Italy
Cahill - eh meh nothing to wet your pants over
Essien - will probably retire given his injury woes nor will he be back in time
Neymar - highest of unlikelys considering he has already signed a pre contract agreement with Real Madrid, dont see him going back on that.

Plus the rest of your side stinks besides Sturridge and a Liverpool Torres (not current obviously!)And they are seriously going to drop terry from their starting XINeymar?? modric?? i think you have this all wrong, where do you plan for Terry to be then?Well Modric and Neymar won't be moving there and I doubt Kaka would sign to play sub so that reduces those options
Still at least you'll have Cahill maybeBosingwa out.not good enough to be at chelseaTerry?And pigs will flyThot neymar signed for barca , well barca payed 10 million and have 1st option to sign hium in next 4 years , ed can u confirm this ?

daviebhoy08 {Ed001's Note - it is complicated, he could still very well end up going somewhere else, they only have first dibs at offering him a deal.}In their dreamsI don't get it. Luiz and Bosingwa in, but no Terry? Is this meant to be a joke?

Saints fans are bad losers, better get used to it boys, it's going to be a regular occurrence from now on.(16)(9)Laughable comments from Adkins in the local southampton echo last night when he said they will still win the championship. He is as big headed and cocky as all saints fans who think they are the Man City of the championship when they keep going on about all the players they are going to sign. we'll see as Cortese the chairman doesnt like spending it and has a wage cap on players wages. Saints fans can say what they want but i know for a fact their is a cap on wages which is why alot of players wont sign for them.Not used to losing that's the problem not like the skates and the bender Brighton girls.Used to losing? We will see how the final table looks like. Bunch of girls brighton are, gus cant take losing and quite clearly made it clear to his players to cheat. El-Abd should be banned from football, and sent to some reality tv show, his acting is that bad..We're a team used to winning. Whereas the Smates and Brighton aren't

Can you keep up?Too right were bad losers nobody likes losing especially when ur team is in the habit of winning, anybody who thinks the wheels have come off just becuase of a little dip in form are mental, we aint top by luck u know!3-0 says you got stuffed and i dont support Pompey or Brighton but all isee on here is all the players you believe you are sigining. Adkins will go for bargain basement players as Saints wont pay big transfer fees.

If they get this Japanese player its not a big transfer. What happenned to Maynard-Sharp that you were going to sign. Its total fantasy by you lot.

You will end up in the play offs but wont go up if you did you would would need a virtual new squad as Lambert is not premier league along with a number of your squad and you could guarantee a stuffing every week.Cant shoot saints down, there up there on merit and have come from a lower league bitter teams aroundWe came up from league one with a sqaud of players that mostly were not experienced at this level but they have blown most teams weve faced out of the water as our goal diference shows so i wouldnt write them off, they keep breaking records and exceeding expectation andim sure big signings will happen now and when we are promoted, are devastating top form will return make no mistake1 game doesnt make a season and the table clearly shows that we have been the best team on the league this season.U won't finish inthe top 2 play offs is your only hope . Your wage bill was higher than half the championship last season and u were in league 1 . Fact ! Your chairman has gambled and u make a loss each year like most clubs in the country but if u don't go up this year u will lose all your good players and struggle too go up ever again !Just wait until you arrive at elland road, footballing lesson!The first part of the season you always get a team that has been promoted start off well in the league and saints will be no different they will be going down the table like the christmas decorations will be coming down.
be prepared saints fans for a rocky ride from now on in.

west ham will win the league with allardyces experience and a n other team to get second spot. saints for the play offs but not to make the final.Yep, just like Norwich and many of you non-Saints are just expressing ignorance. The chairman hasn't gambled. The 2009 5 year plan aimed for Prem league football by 2014. We look, at the moment, to be ahead of that plan. Perhaps we over estimated the opposition but all our good players are on long term contracts. We are well run, sensibly financed and don't need to sell as Arsenal discovered.Dont make me laugh, a leeds fan givin it the big talk what a mug

Dundee United teen Scott Allan is in advanced talks with West Brom after turning down a new contract with Dundee United, who would make him the highest payed teenager in the club's history. Allan has been at the club for 10 years, with fans contributing to his wages, the club sticking by him through arrests and court cases, aswell as his leg break injury, but he decided to repay them by not signing a new contract. Rangers are interested, but Allan has snubbed his childhood club's approach to him. United will sell Allan for over £400,000, with compensation of £200,000 and a possible sell-on claus.(12)(8)

Well will want to move from Celtic then8 million for a championship player, good luck on that one he's worth 2mil max look at goodwillie prolific goal scoring in the micky mouse league and just can't cut it in the prem.Scottish Football and Success are never used in the same sentence. He would better off in the Championship!Goodwillie who scored for fun in the epl must be of the same stantard as boothroyd who scored for fun with cardiff in the championship and now couldn't score in amsterdams entertainment ditrict and what success as english football had recently apart from bottling it in every tournament they enterWhy would any player with any ambition want to sign for qpr? there going straight back down but then again if you listen to there brain dead deluded fans they are signing everyone and will have a squad of about seventy which they could play in every game but it still wont stop you getting relegatedHooper for 8 million, he's worth at least double that amount! ;@)Ha ha who said goodwillie was a prolific goal scorer???He can win trophies at Celtic and play in Europe, he would score goals in England he is a better player than Bothroyd or Helguson

Hey Ed is there gonna be any permanent deals on at Leeds I heard Leeds are interste d in David templeton {Ed007's Note - I don't think Leeds would be able to match Hearts valuation of the player. If Hearts financial situation led to cancelled contracts etc he would be one of the most wanted free agents in Britain.}(6)(8)
