Peterborough united are looking at strikers because they have only got 2 at the moment, in dwight gayle and lee tomlin, but tomlin has a 3 match ban!
Jamie Vardy and Simeon Jackson are very strongly linked to the club, also nick powell could be loaned out to the posh from Manchester United
Huddersfield and Notts forest are fighting over the signing of attacking midfielder george boyd for a deal around 1.2million

I hear this too, My father has links into Manchester Uniteds Reserve team and he has mentioned that Powell is looking for a loan move ! Watch this space {Ed003's Note - Thanks Darren..}

06 Jan 2013 23:44:25
You'll not get jackson mate, he's the only striker Norwich have got with any pace. Hardly prolific but good impact sub.

07 Jan 2013 02:22:54
Notts forest it's ducking Nottingham Forest also forest don't want him.



06 Jan 2013 23:02:33
Free agent Liam Dickinson formerly with Southend United, deciding over moves to either Shrewsbury Town or Preston North End.
Prestons Lee Trundles name has been circulated for a loan move to regain fitness with Wrexham and Accrington Stanley both showing interest.



06 Jan 2013 22:46:58
Lewis Grabban to Barnsley 750k
Darren Bent to Reading 8.5mil

06 Jan 2013 22:46:58
Lewis Grabban to Barnsley 750k
Darren Bent to Reading 8.5mil

reading spending that kinda cash? Get real

Can't see Villa offloading Bent to a relegation rival, can you imagine what it would be like at Villa Park for the chairman and manager if bBent's goals kept Redding up at Villa's expense - no chance IMO

8.5m ????

No chance...Readings club record fee is 2.5m and it will stay that in my lifetime....whilst most clubs with ambition shop in John Lewis...Reading shop in Poundland ...only need to watch them to see that !

07 Jan 2013 00:00:58
I can really see Barnsley who have absolutely no money spending 750.00K

Paul Ince next manager

Reading will not pay 8.5 million for anyone let alone bent, hes far too good for us



06 Jan 2013 22:45:35
Right fellow Norwich fans, personally I think Hooper would be a great signing. I saw someone post that Hooper has denied it on twitter, however he hasn't. I checked and apart from photos he hasn't tweeted anything since Christmas day. It's looking increasingly likely. OTBC

And where is this increasingly likely scenario coming from ?

Celtic will decide IF and when Gary Hooper moves NOT Norwich or any other club

Hopper will be a great addition for any epl club and would help England squad out and just bang them in. From what I hear from yo Norwich fans is you can't afford him, he has to go for minimum 9mill for if it was any other league it would be 15mill plus. He should have got the carrol transfer price where as carroll should be a 2.5mill transfer.



06 Jan 2013 22:45:14
Ross McCormack to sign for HTAFC by the end of the month. Out of favour at Leeds, and Blackstock on his way, so he is going to reunite with Grayson.



06 Jan 2013 22:39:44
Muhamed Beić of Ferencvrosi TC of hungary is set to sign for bristol city this week after a fee of 250,000 euros were agreed



06 Jan 2013 22:38:43
Palace have rejected £10 million bid from spurs for Zaha. Tbh I can't see him leaving this jan, and not for any less than £20 million (even though that's too expensive)



06 Jan 2013 22:38:01
Everton, Newcastle and Stoke City are going to test the resolve of WBA by increasing their interest in the highly impressive Shane Long, Reading were thought to be looking into bringing Long back to the Madejski, but with their present Premiership league position it has turned out to be a non starter.



06 Jan 2013 22:33:05
Sheffield Wednesday are chasing Manchester United striker Federico Macheda for a possible loan.



06 Jan 2013 22:27:15
I have read that Bolton were looking at Arsenal's Thomas Eisfeld as a possible loan signing in January. Don't know how much truth is in the rumour.



06 Jan 2013 22:15:12
West Brom coach Dean Kiely shock contender for Doncaster Rovers job.



06 Jan 2013 22:13:21
Vaz ta signing for hull city, I've just seen him at hotel in hull

What a load of rubbish



06 Jan 2013 22:09:12
Norwich boss Chris Hughton has agreed to send striker Simeon Jackson out on loan and the striker is set to join Peterborough for 3 months.

I wish can't see it happening unfiortunately



06 Jan 2013 21:44:32
Grimsby Town management duo Rob Scott and Paul Hurst have emerged as favorites to take over at Doncaster Rovers {Ed003's Note - No they havent}

O'Driscoll favourite to return

They're not on shortlist



06 Jan 2013 21:26:46
Gary Hooper will sadly sign for Norwich in the next 48hours for £6.5m from a Cetlic fan.

To meny clubs interested for him to commit to a club to soon unless his agent and advisers like to commit financial suicide .which I doubt so can't see this happening at all

Hope not.but if hes Gona stand a chance of England squad he has to prove himself down England.theres, only one Gary Hooper

6.5 is a joke! Unless there are big add ons to take it to 10 and over. Don't belove it but if true the epl is in for some goals

So a Celtic fan is going to pay 6.5m for Hooper to go to Norwich?

Nonsense mate, end of!



06 Jan 2013 21:10:35
read on another site brighton looking at kris commons of celtic ed have you heard about this {Ed007's Note - I think Brighton would be too far south to interest Commons.}

And too much money



06 Jan 2013 21:01:03
Huddlestone on loan to West Brom



06 Jan 2013 20:56:29
Cardiff to bid 3.5m for the Birmingham pair king and Redmond

Yeh think king is coming don't know about redmond

Redmond be a good signing and not marlon king coz he said he wanted to stay with birmingham

Redmond is worth 6mil easy.



06 Jan 2013 20:54:56
I've also heard that Gray is back on his way to Valley Parade!

Rumoured to be looking at conor doyle



06 Jan 2013 20:38:39
Charlton Athletic to sign youn Nigerian forward, olanruwaje kayode, from FC Lurzen also Kieran Richard Richardson on a free - reliable source



06 Jan 2013 21:14:55
Peterborough United are set to sign Leicester striker Jamie Vardy on loan until the end of the season.



06 Jan 2013 21:14:44
Huddersfield are linked with a short term loan for Garry Monk of Swansea as the defender looks to get some minutes under his belt after the frustration of not being selected for Swansea in recent weeks. Swansea are also monitoring the situation of Jack Hunt of Huddersfield along with Tottenham and Norwich

Why would spurs want another young pacey right back? Kyle Walker is the exact same style player as Hunt and Walker is way better! Maybe to Norwich as Hunt has close links with ex Huddersfield team mate Anthony Pilkington



06 Jan 2013 20:48:03
Ipswich Town are leading the race for the signature of DJ Campbell after his successful loan spell at the club. Hull City are now on the hunt for another striker as DJ was their first choice and summer signing Proschwitz has been a bit of a let down for his large price tag.



06 Jan 2013 20:45:05
Crystal Palace are aware that 26yr old paul bignot of blackpool ( ian holloway's previous employers ) has only 6 months left on his current deal as they look to add to their squad and at right back this could be a possible mover.

He never got anywhere near Blackpools first team even under Holloway. Don't know why he would want him now.



06 Jan 2013 20:42:00
Bradford city have been in touch with Watford in a view to loan Chris Iwelumo until the end of the season.

Good luck if you like 6ft3 lazy strikers that don't win headers btw im a notts county fan so i know what im talking about

When Iwelumo was at Burnley I have no idea why he was in the starting lineup, he was so slow and he didn't even bother jumping for headers.. Waste of time.

Chris played for parky at colchester when he knew where the goal was so hopefully parky will get the best out of him

I'm a Watford season ticket holder. Yes, he's not the best but don't class him as a striker.
Iwelumo is an extremely awkward forward who draws defenders in & leaves fellow forwards with more space.
If Bradford have someone who can run onto knock-downs it might just get you promoted.

When he joined watford people were like hes a beast... then they saw him play and were like... ***********



06 Jan 2013 20:40:07
Neil Lennon looking at another Defender and another attacker before end of window.
Aswell as Gershon believed to also be looking at one of Curtis Davies, Sean St Ledger or Christophe Berra.
Attackers linked are Eremenko (Rubin Kazan), Leigh Griffiths, Kenwwyne Jones or Kevin Doyle....



06 Jan 2013 20:38:48
Darren Bent been in Reading to discuss terms
Not a Reading fan but a good signing if it happens

Similar to my confirming that Pearce is being courted by Liverpool, I can again confirm that this is 100% true, he travelled with his agent to meet with Mcdermott and Hammond In Oxford this lunchtime. For the record I was the first to break the story of Corico.

Who's corico

Better happen

No way in hell this will happen



06 Jan 2013 20:34:32
Bristol city are lining up a bid for Barnsley midfielder jim o'brien

06 Jan 2013 19:54:56

06 Jan 2013 19:39:19
The new favourite for the barnsley job is notts county manager keith curle he has won a lot of praise for his brand of football and barnsley see him as a good manager after missing out on SOD

Who the next favourite.Will we have a club to support. We have gone back ten years by becoming a selling club. I know we have to sell player to keep afloat but is this the best time to be selling players when we don't have a manager. I sorry but this is last season for me to be a barnsley supporter after 25 years of holding a season ticket enough enough.



06 Jan 2013 19:38:30
Alan Lee set to complete loan move to Colchester till the end of the season. Alan still lives on the Essex-Suffolk border and is excited by the prospect of helping his local club avoid relegation.

06 Jan 2013 20:06:28
Big Alan still wants to play for Huddersfield...

06 Jan 2013 20:26:45
Alan Lee is settled in the Huddersfield area and lives in the Holme Valley area and likes the countryside unlikely he would move that far south

Alan Lee lives and is settled in the Huddersfield area unlikely he would wish to move south .



06 Jan 2013 19:34:34
Leroy Lita is joining Sheffield Wednesday on loan which could result in Gary Madine joining Swindon on loan for the rest of the season

Swindon have no money their chairman said, thats why di canio is unhappy



06 Jan 2013 19:30:58
notts county are closing in on akpo sodje curle is back in the market for a big target man after letting iwelumo leave and notts are well placed to sign him because sam sodje his brother has advised him to join



06 Jan 2013 19:26:39
Sean o'driscoll to make return to Doncaster rovers.chairman and other board members didn't want him to leave but the rest of the board voted to keep McKay no he's gone is it the return

Would be a step backwards to get him back, he is not coming near my club, I Will not go to another game if he does



06 Jan 2013 19:25:57
Doncaster Rovers are to be looking at managers as Dean Saunders is to join Wolves on Monday. Sean O'Driscoll is favourite after rejecting Barnsley, also, Owen Coyle, Billy Davies, Uwe Rosler, Karl Robinson and unfortunately Keith Hill!

06 Jan 2013 22:53:06
Hope your right S O D or Coyle 4 me {Ed003's Note - I think SOD and the club have both distanced themselves from this rumour.}

It's Owen Coyle to take over at Doncaster Rovers



06 Jan 2013 19:10:05
some cardiff news here. earnshaw has agreed to join millwall but millwall won't cardiff to pay 20% of his 9 grand a week should be done as soon as the clubs agree on who pays what on wages. close to coming in at cardiff is marlon king of birmingham for roughly 1mill. also malky is very keen on jamie makkie of QPR but harry wonts to bring in some players before he let's makkie leave

We are after marvin sordell and fraizer campbell

06 Jan 2013 20:15:43
Earnshaw to Huddersfield. 9k is nothing compared to what we pay Alan Lee.

Earnie would be a great signing for millwall guaranteed goals. i would love malky to give the lad a chance

06 Jan 2013 22:47:25
Millwall are trying to cut the wage bill because we are not even getting 10k attendances. Earnshaw would be great, but we already have 2 good strikers

Marlin king doesn't want to leave the midlands family is settled here

2gd strikers are you mad, Henderson is terrible, and n'guessan just runs around and don't know what to do once he has the ball abit like feeney



06 Jan 2013 18:55:07
Newcastle United are set to replace Demba Ba with French forward Bafetimbi Gomis. Manager Alan Pardew likes to bring in players from the French top flight and the Lyon hitman looks set to be the next for a reported fee of £11 million.



06 Jan 2013 18:50:33
Sunderland have made a £2 million bid for Roda JC defender Tamas Kadar. The Hungarian has played in England before with Newcastle United.



06 Jan 2013 18:48:13
Sunderland and Aston Villa in a tug of battle to land Alfred N'Diaye, highly rated French midfielder. Player thought to favour a move to Villa, but Sunderland are the first to have had a bid accepted from N'Diaye's Turkish club



06 Jan 2013 18:47:39
bristol city will announce a new manager by the end of the week from what iv heard there is 3 contenders 1 owen coyle 2 micky adams 3 steve cotrill

No its o driscoll thats who we want



06 Jan 2013 18:16:12
Any news on Luton Town Ed !?!? {Ed003's Note - Nothing sorry,well done yesterday}



06 Jan 2013 18:45:51
Port Vale star Ryan Burge did not feature yesterday, and while assistant manager Mark Grew said he was being rested as he was tired, Burge has played his last game for the club as talks are progressing between numerous championship and premier league outfits. a deal will certainly be done.

Not that good to be in them sort of leagues

Bigger clubs will buy"potential"

I want whatever he has been drinking! If burge is to leave it will not be to a team in a higher league.

Burgey going nowere

From what i have seen of Burge up the vale this year he has the potential to play at the highest levels, can easily see he is a cut above and could easily play championship, but may need a season there before the jump to the premiership

Ryan is in his first full season and drifts in and out of games. Having seen him all season he could step up a division but higher I don't think so

Seems strange, although playing well, he's been on transfer list without any takers since summer.

I am a vale fan but my hubby is a crewe fan, hey thats just how life is! on a few occasions i have been lucky enough to drag him down to the vale this season...took some persuading! he was very impressed with burge and in his honest opinion thought he was better than ashley westwood who went from crewe to villa, (IF TRUE) these rumours would not surprise me



06 Jan 2013 18:34:27
Preston North End are the latest team to be linked with Mansfield Town striker Matt Green

He played well tonight, could be a useful addition

He is going to be in very high demand but I'm not sure he will be worth it



06 Jan 2013 18:33:56
SO this is everything i have heard..

Possible Ins:

Stoke want Saint-Etienne LB Faouzi Ghoulam for around £2.5m

Pulis is looking to buy Mauro Zarate off Lazio for £7m-ish

Stoke also want to take the deal for Tom Ince off Liverpool. Stoke are willing to bid up to £10m for the young Centre Attacking midfielder.

Lee Chung Yong is also wanted.

Martin Olsson was also an interest to Stoke. Not that they need another defender..

Possible Outs:

Michael Owen could be on his way to Perth Glory in Australia if the bid is the right price.

Bristol City want Andy Wilkinson

Tonge is on his way to Leeds for 200k

Palacios may be heading to Mexico after an unnamed club showed interest. Stoke will be looking for around £2.5m for him even though they bought him for £8m

QPR, Aston Villa and Swansea have been linked to Kenwyne Jones. Stoke want around £4m for the Jamaican

Colchester are interested in Carlo Nash

And Huddersfield want to sign Jermaine Pennant as soon as his loan expires from Wolves.

06 Jan 2013 19:04:18
Huddersfield do not want or need a player with the attitude of pennant. I'm sure we could find a much better player for half the wages that he would demand. What has he actually done except drag wolves closer the relegation? Waste of money and time if you ask me.

Pannant would be a dreadful signing ; his career has been on the decline for some time .

Kenwyne isn't Jamaican. He's from Trinidad and Tobago...

Swansea would never buy Kenwyne Jones, doesn't suit our style at all



06 Jan 2013 18:32:25
Everton have had a bid accepted for Vegard Forren, fee believed to be £4 million.



06 Jan 2013 18:27:53
Cheltenham could be about to make a move for Exeter City's veteran striker Jamie Cureton.



06 Jan 2013 18:26:38
has anyone got any roumers of players signing for notts county ive heard notts are interested in matt tubbs

Would be a great signing for Notts we need a goalscorer



06 Jan 2013 18:25:36
Barnsley have accepted a bid from Blackpool for Wiseman. Player will discuss terms tomrw.

06 Jan 2013 21:34:01
It seems like we (blackpool) maybe getting ready to replace baps with a donkey, wiseman makes a lot of costly mistakes which is not what we need but at least he will fit in with our lasher profile! UTMP {Ed003's Note - spoken like a true supporter ? }

Blackpool must be desperate



06 Jan 2013 18:06:50
Doncaster rovers are intrested in signing derby striker nathan tyson

Joe fitzgerald

Tyson has been a super-sub this year being one of the quickest players in the league but doesnt score for Derby when starting. I think anything over 350 thousand and Derby would accept the bid. Top goalscorer before he was injured, Jamie Ward will be match fit soon as well apparently.



06 Jan 2013 18:11:46
Barnsley accept undisclosed bit for defender Scott Wiseman from Blackpool



06 Jan 2013 18:09:21
Paul Hartley new Bristol City Manager

No way - even less experience than McInnes



06 Jan 2013 18:08:26
joe jordan has been seen in guernsey fueling the rumour he is about to take over at bristol city

Good one but not going to happen.



06 Jan 2013 18:07:01
MK Dons to release Jabo Ibehre and Charlie MacDonald during current transfer window. Leyton Orient and Bristol Rovers are interested in signing Ibehre but only on a free transfer. MK Dons want to sign Alan Judge who has rejected a new contract offer from Notts County.

Haha behave championship teams want judge could you afford 700,000 dont think so

06 Jan 2013 19:16:50
charlie macdonald to Gillingham

06 Jan 2013 19:39:24
Yes Charlie mac joining Gillingham



06 Jan 2013 17:50:08
Aldershot winger Adam Mekki is set to join
Tranmere Rover's on a 2 and a half year
deal.Tranmere are set to pay 85K for him .
(I work at Aldershot)

Wrong because he signed a contract until 2014 and hes very happy there

Dosent even start For Us so unlikely



06 Jan 2013 17:14:45
Huddersfield town looking to boost our chances of survival by signing the following players:

George Boyd (signing)
Tom huddlestone (enquiry for loan)
Nathan Tyson
the young wonder winger from Aberdeen
Johnny Russell

This will push Huddersfield onwards up the league

Johnny russell plays for dundee united the young wingers name is ryan fraser that plays for aberdeen

06 Jan 2013 18:03:11
Are you in cloud cookoo land? Tyson is past it, Boyd would be good but don't think he will come, Russell is possible if they dig deep. The only likely one is the kid from Aberdeen and some old has being loan player on massive wages.

06 Jan 2013 18:12:50
Think the poster was unsure of the name of fraiser not that russell plays or Aberdeen

All great except Tyson, why would we want him if Russell signs.

George Boyd would be a great signing for Huddersfield but I doubt they could afford his wage demands and he has always been based in the south unlikely he would move north .

06 Jan 2013 20:14:16
Heard pennant is coming on loan... This is the worse news I have heard never rated him and his attitude stinks. Please don't do it Grayson

Another transfer target is Anthony Wordworth from Colchester, not quite up to Boyds standard but younger and bags of potential. Other championship clubs sniffing round.

Also if we got Russel we would most likely try for Mackay-Steven which would improve us a lot. Personally I think we need to focus on a Goalkeeper as smithies has given us no hope lately.



06 Jan 2013 17:10:16
Southend to sign Ricky Holmes for an undisclosed fee before the end of next week. The Barnet winger's contract is up in the summer, and he was born in Southend and supports the club.



06 Jan 2013 17:07:56
Paul Hartley to replace Derek McInnes as manager.

The former City midfielder has an impressive record as Alloa boss and still keeps in contact with many of the City playing staff and board. (Murray, Carey, Jon Lansdown)

Lansdown has held informal talks with the Scot and compensation is expected to be reached quickly with Alloa. Lansdown is impressed with Hartley's leadership skills and no-nonsense approach.

06 Jan 2013 18:40:20
He left because he was home sick so no. but he looks like he'll be good in Scotland.

06 Jan 2013 18:16:50
he'll need to team up with someone who has a bit more experience in England IMO

There is a god the sooner this happens the better otherwise welcome to league 1

06 Jan 2013 19:45:23
We need him playing as well!- He would still be better than most of our midfield



06 Jan 2013 17:06:54
Oldham, Doncaster, sheffield united and burnley are all interested in signing tranmeres young striker cole stockton

Hes going nowhere



06 Jan 2013 17:02:45
Why would wolves want to sign brady theyve got sako!



06 jan 2013 16:56:14
bristol city in advanced talks with wba over a £2mil deal for graham dorrans.

06 Jan 2013 17:15:18
Shame they want 4 million

Shame Bristol can't afford his wages, are going to get relegated on top of what the first reply said. The only reason Dorrans would go near Ashton gate would to tell you that himself.



06 Jan 2013 16:54:07
woking fc have agreed a deal with aldershot fc to take goal keeper ross worner on loan for the rest of the season with the agreement that they can buy him for 60k during any part of his loan ( sourse is a woking and ex aldershot player )

Where are Woking going to find 60k



06 Jan 2013 16:39:23

06 Jan 2013 18:11:34

Campbell said that he won't go on loan again anywhere but will go on a permanent deal & would like to get something sorted with Ipswich.



06 Jan 2013 16:37:55
Iago Aspas to sign for Swansea in the summer transfer window



06 Jan 2013 16:35:33

Walsall have offered a 6 month deal to Scott Dobie



06 Jan 2013 15:54:09

06 Jan 2013 16:15:45
Doncaster are interested in Owen Coyle, Mark Yates, Mickey Mellon or Paul Tisdale to replace Wolves bound' Dean Saunders

06 Jan 2013 17:03:34
Would love to see Sean O, Driscoll back at Doncaster should Dean Saunders leave.Dean never really hit it off with the fans at Rovers but i wish him luck! .Knowing John Ryan of old he will have someone in mind all ready that could surprise us all RTID

Were do you get ya information from ? if he goes he goes ......dont won't it to happen but live goes on .get someone from championship who as good form not no carp too see us finish mid table ...we want championships status

Micky Mellon in the running for Doncaster job



06 Jan 2013 16:11:17
Milan Badelj is having an amazing season tackling and intercepting, best in europe, with a key pass a match and 52 passes pper match.

Could this be the answer to our midfield? Sandro blocking the backline, Badelj covering box to box as our vidal, and dembele further up.

Anyone think he might be worth reconsidering moutinho over? Then get Eriksson when we can instead of spending on that over priced moutinho



06 Jan 2013 16:09:46
who said anything about di canio being sacked ? things are happening behind the scenes which will mutually suit all parties.all will be revelied this space and yes the person involved was at the county ground yesterday.

Hull City can now go ahead in a deal to sign DJ Campbell initially on loan with the view of a permanent deal in the summer. Harry Rednapp has decided Campbell is way of the pace for the QPR first team after his performance in the FA Cup.

Not as good as Frazier though

06 Jan 2013 20:52:15
Hull city to sign Anthony knockaert for 1 million a Cameron Stewart from leicester



06 Jan 2013 15:10:37
frank lampard on the way to QPR to help out uncle harry



06 Jan 2013 15:06:07
Bradford forward James Hansen has been linked with a move to league 1 tap toppers tranmere rovers.

Hanson is nowhere near good enough for league one.

As if that would happen James Hanson is happy at Bradford and tranmere do not have the money to buy him.


06 Jan 2013 19:13:06
He can go for me.

No way! Hanson barely meets the criteria as a footballer

Hanson is a championship ply at best, good link up not 2 many better in air

I hope this true. He can go he won't be of no loss to valley parade.



06 Jan 2013 14:44:53
Craig Beattie to sign for York City.



06 Jan 2013 14:43:00
Lee Barnard has signed for Crawley

Since when? Nothing reported on either Crawley Town's or Southampton's official websites

No chance. would be a great signing though

Would have to take a massive cut in wages



06 Jan 2013 14:41:11
Heard from reliable sources that Wigan was extremely impressed with Afc Bournemouth's wing Marc Pughs performance in the FA Cup yesterday and are considering putting in a offer for him

Will have to be a pretty decent bid as he has just signed a three year contract

Tbh I just thought Wigan were rubbish.

Ink still wet on a new contract, signed a few weeks ago

O'Driscoll to be next Barnsley manager?

Dont see him going to Barnsley especially as boyhood team Wolves are looking for a new boss or he may think he has unfinished business at Donny

Just come on sly sod not comming turned us down i wonder why that is nowt to do with money gutted

Official statement on website stating odriscoll not wanting a job... Bet you he has a club in next month or two... Wiseman to go to Blackpool fee agreed n Davies defo to Bolton fee agreed!! Good luck to both players will probably come back to bite us! Paul

Huddersfield town are trying to sign Gary o'neill at west ham

Can't see this, he has been out for a long time with a bad ankle injury and not playing regular football. Huddersfield need a midfield signing and before his injury would have fit the bill but can't see it now. We have enough players with poor injury records and in this key position this would be a huge risk.

Simon Church is rumoured to be joining Millwall on loan till the end of the season

Millwall has offered 250k for Simon Church.

06 Jan 2013 22:49:05
He would be great for us but we can't afford his wages

Why did we bid 250K for him then?



06 Jan 2013 13:14:22
Barnsley's Craig Davies will join Hull City for £1.2 million within the next 3 days also Tadanari Lee and Richard Chaplow will both join on short term loans from Southampton.

Chaplow possibly. Lee highly doubtful, just breaking back into the squad after injuries.

Davies has a relaise Claus of 300,000

1.2 million why would they pay that when he has a release clause of 300k,, oh and hes already at Bolton agreeing terms...

Chaplow maybe, but Tadanari Lee wont be. He has just come back from long term injury, and has made his way back into the squad. Made a subs appearance against Chelsea

06 Jan 2013 18:28:20
Gazza out on loan then bring in a new number 1, don't care who as long as boruc isnt playing, kelv not quite cut it which is sad.

Davies signing for Bolton

06 Jan 2013 22:20:56
We must sign a good experence goalie and get 2 central defenders and another winger, starting to lose faith with atkins and his sub bench not good enough. Ps why are saints keeping tight lip on our injures as a fan i want to know.

Loose faith in Adkins? You mean after he engineered one of the all time greatest turn arounds to take us from last with 4 points from our first 10 games up to 17th on 18 points with 14 points from the following 10 fixtures.

Adkins has done great things with the team and I'm sure will make the right signings this month to improve us further. The bench isn't too bad only real desperate need to change the centre back spot as Hooiveld is just not good enough.

06 Jan 2013 12:52:58
Stoke City will hijack Liverpool's move for Tom Ince with the promise of regular 1st team football. Stoke need a young attacking midfielder and are willing to pay around £10 million.

Shows what a daft post that is-Blackpool only want 6m for him!

Stoke only have around 3m to spend.

Who has told you that Stoke only have 3million to spend?. Local reports suggest that Stoke will only reinforce if some players move on

Hooper to Norwich - 7m & 35k a week 3yr contract, he is having a medical on Monday

Celtic won't sell till summer. Plus he'd be insane to leave when he's got two glamour ties against juventus.

Would be great but no don't think so norwich's wadge cap is around 15k a week

06 Jan 2013 19:01:49
Holt is reportadly on 20-25,000 a week due to his latest contract

Not happening mcnally has said the rumour is not true

What's the source for this? I really hope this is true. Hooper would be the best man for the job and is generally a top bloke.

Please, please let this be true !

Well I can tell you that's rubbish straight away because Hooper is on holiday in Dubai with a couple of his Celtic team mates.

Where is your source?

McNally hasn't said a thing. Where'd you get that from?

Norwich wages around 15k is not true. Some are obviousley but holt is around 20k and bassong is 25-30k. There is plenty left in the budget as the club earns a lot of money. Plenty of money to spend and a good wage system. Available to stretch to around 30k plus now. Also some players will leave. Taking around 30k a week off the wage bill.

06 Jan 2013 22:41:03
Was in dubai 6 hrs ago?

Not happening unfortunately. Plus Norwich have no wage cap, Mcnally said this himself during the Holt contract saga

We could afford that wage. I believe Bassong is on about 20K and i would agree that he would be insane with the juve games coming up

Derek McInnes to be dismissed tomorrow by Bristol City following the arrival of clubs major benefactor Steve Lansdown from Guernsey

About time too he should have gone 3 months ago when he lost the dressing room and respect from his players.

Do Bristol City have any funds to spend in the transfer window?

06 Jan 2013 16:41:01
Lansdown has potts of money, well over 750 million but his problem is that if he spends to keep City up then surely the club will be hit with a huge fine and a transfer embargo when the new 'capping system' comes in!

He was in the uk at the peterbourgh game and judging by his speech he isnt going anywhere

Loic Remy will not be joining Newcastle sources understand that he is not interested in the move and Newcastle won't pay his wage demands. A move to Qpr looks more likely, Sunderland have also enquiried about his services. Newcastle will now turn to yoan gouffran or Pierre emerick aubameyang although aubameyang looks unlikely.

A move for Danny graham was also discussed and
Although the player would be interested he isn't good enough to lead the line in the boards opinion Sunderland have also enquired about graham

robert earnshaw to join millwall on loan for rest of season . 100% true

Believe it when I see it?COYL

Yer yer we will see

Would be happy with that good player!

It would be a good signing 'IF' it happens?Whats happening with Simon Church KJ? Are we signing him?

Church transfer is off - he wanted too much money, Millwall were unwilling to match the 15k per week he's on at Reading

If you say that Millwall won't pay Church so called 15K a week then why did they bid 250K for him?They must have known surely?Dosen't make sense to me, if true?

Millwall were hoping Reading were going to pay some of his wages. Heard this from someone at the club - also Trotter is not going anywhere.

The board have a strategy for a situation such as this and have a ‘Plan B’ in place. We will keep everyone updated as we find out more.

More money to waste on Scottish players don't mind Danns though .

Crystal Palace hotshot Wilfried Zaha is on the verge of signing for tottenham hotspurs fc with both crystal palace and tottenham chairman to meet in the next few days to dscuss the deal which could take zaha to white hart lane. The deal could prompt the palace chairman to admit defeat as the deal reportedly reveals a £10 million cash sum zaha to stay at selhurst for the rest of the season and possible double loans from tottenham But Man utd could have the last say in the transfer of zaha.

Yet another Zaha rumour.. To put it short, Zaha's going nowhere.

Our chairman has said we'll take no less that 20 million for him, he has 4.5 years to run on his contract, Zaha's said he wants to help us get promoted, we're in no need to sell and Parish has come out and said, he's going nowhere in January while we have a shot at promotion.

Thats a good idea

Great deal for palace depending on the loan players to get palace up

Load of bullocks, taken from the daily mail, 10 mill, dream on. Zaha will be in the prem next year, either with us or someone else.

Palace Chairman has already said Zaha is not leaving in this transfer window and not for 10-million

Zaha might just go to one of the big clubs if he stays at Palace to the end of the season plus a couple of good loan signings...never say never!

06 Jan 2013 20:24:06
If in any job you were offered more money we would go but if you want to play first team football it doesn't always work out. You could list players who moved to big clubs who are loaned out or play for the under 21 team. Zaha is a great player and let's wish him luck wherever he goes. To me he should stay with palace who knows it could be 30 million value in the summer ( the taxman will be rubbing his hands and zaha will get his 3 million ) lottery win

Totally made up. yes, Spurs did bid for him but Palace rejected it.

Spurs have only just had the first say, so I doubt that united will have the last

May not be any better than Chris Martin though also only proven at League One level

Short and snappy... No way Jose!

Sam baldock. Just what a mid to lower table prem club needs; An average chamionship player who is unproven at a higher level, im sure he would give the team the boost they need to push up the table. Get real



06 Jan 2013 04:34:24
Southampton set to off load several players
to cut the wage bill.
Dickson, Forte, De Ridder, Butterfield, Chaplow, Gazzaniga,
Barnard, Seaborne, & Martin all available for loan or moves out of the club.
Downing Liverpool loan
Astori Calgiari £9m
Douglas FC Twente
Tegen Borrusia MG

Downing is the funniest rumour ive heard since the summer. This aint football manager!

I'm sure they will be off loading players and of course it will help the wage bill. But we are too close to the maximum squad size to get more than 2 players in and that will be the reason.

Plus Barnard and Martin have now returned, Sam Hoskins who has gone out wasn't part of those numbers as he was under age. So the squad has already increased by 2.

I'd hold onto Gazza but yes the rest could be offloaded or loaned either now or in the summer.
As for the in's. Those three would be amazing but realistically I'd be delighted if we captured just one of them.

Please not Downing, he has nothing left to offer, let him go back to Aston Villa in some kind of player plus cash deal for Bent

06 Jan 2013 10:31:13
Add boruk to your list, is Kelvin Davis injured everyone would prefer him in goal or is cortese picking the team

Do you mean ter Stegen the goalkeeper who would cost about 20m?

Agree with the outs except gazzaniga, martin needs games the rest not prem standard.

Downing no thank you

Any player leaving saints will be those who will struggle to get a regular place in the first team squad....NOT to cut the wage bill. Gazzaniga wont be going anywhere except maybe on loan, but Adkins has already said that he doesnt anticipate signing another keeper as we already have 3, so i doubt he will even go out on loan.

After watching saints second string yesterday if adkins does not buy some new players we will be relegated the squad has no strength in depth new center back some more pace and a goalkeeper who will play the rest of the season

I'd welcome Downing to st marys, he's a decent player, for some reason players struggle at Liverpool. Look at crouch for example. Took him about 3 months to score for them and all saints fans know the class he has. Also you look at the last two games he played for the scousers he was probably they're best player bar Suarez

Gazzaniga is our number 1 why would we let him leave.

Wouldn't welcome Downing, he's horrendous, Gazzaniga doesn't need to go on loan in my opinion, Boruc's contract needs to be cancelled, he's a laughing stock.

Gazza is too young to be our number 1 in the premiership. Especially in our first and most important season, **** boruc on keep kelv as a number 2 and loan gazza out for more experience.

06 Jan 2013 19:38:54
Not sure about 20 million for stegen ask a few saints fans can't think why he is in the team unless he is a mate of an Italian player saints want perhaps he will lose us a game big time soon

Gazzaniga will be staying put. He is an eesential part of our squad and I am hoping will reclaim the first team spot as he has been superb through this season with an unfortunate error or two but he played a key part in many of our best results.

06 Jan 2013 20:39:26
Hope Martin gets a loan deal he is a local lad but needs to play first team football and at the moment will not get in the saints team unless he is Italian .

06 Jan 2013 20:59:20
5 years ago saints were almost bust so stop moaning enjoy the big games at the moment . If we go down at least we have a club to support

Astori and stegen would be quality signings, great keeper (underated and shadowed by neuer) and an insane defender is just what we need {Ed003's Note - Insane ? }



06 Jan 2013 03:31:28
David Villa to arsenal looks to be a given at the minute, with the catalan side owing the gunners money from the song transfer and villa's history of support for arsenal the transfer look a done deal.

also on the arsenal front Rennes midfielder m'vila will not be signing for arsenal as spurs and a spanish club look to have beaten arsenal to the punch in this window.

As its stands in this window Falcao is going no where. Although it looks likely that he will be making an outrageous move to the other side of madrid(real madrid) in the summer.

Marek Hamsik will be leaving napoli in the summer. The club seem to have convinced the attacking midfielder to stay until the end of the season and see how he feels but there is only one thing on his mind - a big move.

In smaller news Liam Kelly of Kilmarnock F.C will not be leaving at the moment, with norwich, west brom, leeds and cardiff all interested The scotland midfielder has stated to managerial staff he is not looking to leave at the minute.

Villas wife is close to givivg birth to their first child. He wants it born in Spain.'nough said.

His wife is about to have a baby at any moment. Not likely he will be moving to London before the Summer.

man city look to have stole the race for will hughes....apparantly 7 mil cash plus add ons has been accepted but no loan back to derby is involved......they want him now

There is no race...Yet as no contact has been made so definitely no bids.He himself has said numerous times he wouldnt go to a big club if it meant he would be pushed back into youth football or reserve football for the coming seasons.

You've got this from The Mirror. Just lazy journalism my friend, "ooh who's good and young right now? Because all of the top teams are interested". I imagine that's how all mainstream newspapers' meetings go.
