Football Rumours Archive November 06 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Why would Kolo Toure move to Celtic. If he was to leave Arsenal he certainly wouldnt move to scotland, the only place he would probly go to is Spain or Italy. . . He is to good for Celtic and the Scottish League is not good enough.

Everton Ins:
Vagner Love– 8m

Everton need a new Quality striker to partner Yakubu if we want to push for a top 5 finish and qualify for europe

Also Yobo or Lescott will not be moving up north to Newcastle or Sunderland. . they are both settled in the Everton team and the defence is starting to play well.
  On November the 23rd Newcastles future will have been decided, i have a reliable source that tells me the Nigerians are still firm favourites, they also have set their hearts on Yakubu from Everton, still plan to bring in Keegan as manager and they'll sack Dennis wise. This leaves Joe Kinnear with no job as manager but he will be offered a role as assistant manager by Keegan, with Terry McDermot as first team coach. Hughton will go back to defensive coach. Owen will sign a new 3 year deal worth £120,000 per week. Also Martins will sign a new 4 year deal and Given will sign long–term contract so he retires with Newcastle.

January Ins–
Febian Delph (£2m) Leeds Utd
John Utaka (£5m) Portsmouth
Yakubu (£10m + Smith) Everton
Jonny Evans (£6m) Man Utd

January outs–
Smith (Part exchange) Everton
Delph (Loan) Plymouth
Donaldson (Loan) Yeovil
N'Zogbia (£6m) Arsenal
  Arsenal are interested in signing Connor Brown from sheffield united. connor brown currently in the u18 academy with the blades has been contacted about a transfer which could be wrapped up in the new year. arsene wenger says Connor Brown reminds of Gael Clichy but right footed. he is very quick and strong on he ball aswell in his mind, arsene wenger quoted.
This is true evidence as i grew up with connor and attended the same school and still stay in contact now and he confesses that arsenal had been in touch with his agent.
  To the person that listed the names of the celtic players coming and going: for a start, i don't see manchester city bidding for mcgeady. as I stated last week, aston villa are one of the only teams to show an interest and 12mill is more than hes valued at. secondly,kolo toure will not be leaving arsenal and certainly not to come to parkhead. his brother yaya is being lined up by arsenal and they have stated their ambition to play alongside each other. geovanni will also not happen, this is a ridiculous rumour. and el hadj diouf, don't think so. Celtic cant afford to spend more than around 2mill on a player so where these stories of 7mill bids come from is beyond me. realistically, celtic have all but agreed a deal for sylvinho, and are also in talks over jefferen suarez (similar to the crosas deal). we are also looking at brazilian striker wesley, who plays in the portugese league, but again, lack of funds could seriously limit our signings. Hail hail!–

  To the guy who wrote that Kolo Toure will be joining Celtic for £5m, keep dreaming.

Anyway, real rumours regarding AFC is that Wenger will spend some money in January, and will look to buy:
Given (£8m)
Zapata (£11m)
Yaya Toure OR Xabi Alonso (£14m–ish)
A Striker (£??)
+ Youngsters (including a South American striker who will be loaned straight to Salamanca in Jan)

Wenger will then allow Almunia & Gallas to leave.

Also, look out for Wenger trying to get Sturridge from Man City on a Bosman at the end of the season.
  Wenger will not be leaving Arsenal, he has great support and the up most confidence from both the Arsenal board and the fans. He will however wake up and smell the coffee, and realise that we need more experienced and physical players if we want to do better in premier league. Yaya Toure is almost certain to be joining Arsenal, whether it is in January or the summer. Gallas' performances and attitude throughout the remainder of the season will be assesed and if he fails to impress then he will be replaced, possibly with Micah Richards (not very old but has lots of experience from playing with City, is very strong and a tough tackler). A new keeper is also needed as Almunia is not strong enough, possibly Sebastien Frey. Wenger will do everything he can to keep hold of key players such as Fabregas and Adebayor, who shouldnt take to much persuading as they both love the club.
  Arsenal Football Club have been linked with a move for Mickael Landreau.Arsene Wenger has identified him to the Emirates Stadium. currently of Paris St Germain expect abid of around £2million.

Arsenal Football Club hope to land Sebastian Giovinco in January…on loan from Juventus.
  Heard venger is getting fed up with the bad english press his side get and may call it a day at the end of the season. roy keane has been ear–marked
  To the person who says Lovenkrands has bought a house in Glasgow. He never sold the one he previously had. his wife still stays in it.
  Dean Ashton will NOT be fit until March 2009 at the earliest, he will probably miss the rest of the season. If West Ham can't solve his niggling ankle problem he will retire in 2009 pre–season. That is why there have been NO offers for him. The West Ham Press Office keep stating its Xmas he'll be back, but at Christmas they'll announce he's 4–6 weeks away and the story will go on and on etc.
  ––AFC–– Arsenal will make moves for Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Niko Kranjcar in January.
Huntelaar will move to Arsenal for £12million plus Niklas Bendtner and Kranjcar will cost £8million plus Armand Traore.
  Arsenal will not sign another midfielder in january. amaury bischoff will slot in and replace flamini in the holding role. He's been starring in the reserves
  Strong rumours that Michael Owen will be at Anfield on loan , if the loan is injury free , he will join in the summer for £3 million.
  Newcastle will not go down! I can promise everyone that. Newcastle will not sign anyone until the sale of the club has gone through.
If sold before January Newcastle are reportedly interested in Dean Ashton (provided he can stay fit).
Dunno name but another striker, an attacking midfielder, left back as cover.
Possible outs in the summer are:
Harper–as loyalty to let him play first team football
Possibly Owen depending on a takeover and contract discussions with new owners
  Ronaldo will sign in January to boost West Hams strikeforce.
Persistant injuries to Bellamy and Ashton means that Zola is looking at Free transfers to bolster his front line.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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