Sunderland have to sell players before they can buy.(8)(15)Sell these - kieran richardson, Turner, Gordon, the south americans, whickham, the nos, killgallon,gardnerYeah of course we do...? We have a totally 'poor' owner/chairman who doesn't want to support his manager who has won more points over Xmas than any other in the Prem?! Unless we take the Mags policy of buy before you 'can sell'...?Typical mag. we give you a huge head start and you still get more concerned about whats happening at sunderland. we dont need to sell players, but chances are few will come in over jan. probs a forward and a left backHead start? Cheers. You will lucky to finish in the top 10. Also reference the initial comment about selling before you buy I am sure the SMB chairman is sick of manager buying rejects so he will want them off the books before you lot buy more.Pay 10m for wickham then u wanna sell him! Haha smb absolutely sh!t in the transfer Market. Compare him to demba ba for free. 15 goals to 1 and 10m cheaper!And then compare the ages and then compare the starts and then compare the who has been injured alot this season, think about what you say before you say it geordie clown, rejects?? Gardner,Larsson,Vaughan,Westwood,Brown,O'shea, last I looked geordie they doing pretty good, lets see who is laughing when Ba's buy out clause is triggered soon, then tiote,colocini,krul and cabaye are sold. worry about your own joke clubWickham why would you sell him you just bought him give a chance young striker very good if you give him more playin time


06 Jan 2012 23:05:22
Samba to sign for spurs in the morning heard if from a good source!(22)(15)Really hope its true think he would be a great signingCould be true


06 Jan 2012 23:05:05
A very high source at htafc says that Rhodes won't leave this season unless a bid of more than £5 million comes in. Even then they are reluctant to sell. Cash in the bank won't get you promotion.(3)(9)

Rhodes must have most clubs salivating at his goalscoring prowess. 1m,5m10m, jordan rhodes will not be leaving huddersfield town untill the summerYea because we all dream of signing L1 strikers that have not done it any


06 Jan 2012 23:03:03
Cummings rumour gaining ground up here.

His experience could be just what we need.

And, best of all for the board, he'll be cheap.(3)(2)Cummings? As in warren cummings left back from bournemouth? havent heard anything, who is looking at him?


06 Jan 2012 20:18:02
Hi ED, any news on Sheffield United? any ins? mostly outs! {Ed001's Note - the only thing I know is that Maguire is of interest to a few clubs, likely to leave in the summer, if he doesn't go in Jan. Oh and Ertl's missus is trying to crack it as a singer with me mate's band. I keep trying to get them to ask for info during recording sessions.}(2)(0)


06 Jan 2012 22:20:09
Uchebe deal done with stoke. Stoke have a scout watching rides tonight but doesn't mean we'll bid. hoillet deal close to completion also for 8M with stoke. Also onuoha signing for stoke once medical passed.(7)(2)Well I hope they saw Rides play well, everyone else was watching Rhodes, anyway no matter Rhodes would not fit into the Pulis system of playing(and I use that word loosely)of kick and elbow the opposition first and then lump it forward into the penalty area.
Your CB's Huth & Shawcross seem to spend more time trying to pull down the opposition forwards, it resembles rugby, how the heck referee's can't see this and award numerous penalties against them is beyond me.Yeh seems like stoke play the good old english way of football that teams have been doing for over 100s years..long may it continue and rule britainia


06 Jan 2012 22:15:59
Wayne Rooney to real Madrid . Sheffield united to sign micheal brown(18)(29)Some deluded people rooney aint anywhere near good enough to play for madridRooney will never leave man u he is happy at the club. Real madrid have good players up front like benzemaRooney not good enough? I'm not a united fan but rooney would get into any team in the worldMaybe your world whereever that is!Rooney has fell out with fergie so this could be true


06 Jan 2012 21:54:04
Arsenal are set top make a shock move for Norwich keeper Ruddy with Almunia and Mannone out of contract in the summer.

As for incoming transfers, I heard we're looking at Michael Chopra (that won't go down well) and Cudicini.(11)(26)Mannone contract until summer 2013


06 Jan 2012 21:36:30
Charlton set to sign Danny Haynes from barnsley(19)(8)Danny Haynes is in talks with with CarlisleGood luck, he is quick but couldn't hit the backside of a donkey with a banjo. Look how many clubs he has had - Bit of an attitude problem also, off loaded by Ipswich, Bristol City and now Barnsley.07 Jan 2012 13:43:13
Well he isnt and who would you join, league 1 leaders or mid-table team also this source isnt about the move but it quite clearly says that he has joined :


06 Jan 2012 21:15:52
Jordan Rhodes now worth 100 million pounds, only Real Madrid and Man City can afford him now.(29)(30)Why cos hes banged a few goals in english league 3?Another deluded hudd fan! Can't wait to see the reaction now when he leaves for under 5million hahaDoes no one understand sarcasm? Jeeeez even I can see this is a joke. Calm yo' tits.If Nicky Maynard (who) is reported to be going for around 4 million then my words, at least double that for JR.We have the hottest property outside the premiership here at huddersfield and i cant help feeling that there is a lot of jealousy out there from all those fans of clubs that just dont have a chance of scraping together the cash to buy him. Its also a shame for those who can afford him too because HE WILL NOT BE LEAVING HUDDERSFIELD TOWN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!He's going to Celtic cos they're massiveHe will leave if the money is right no matter what lee clarke says.Omg, one thing to say LEAGUE 1, dont get me wrong he is good but come on league 1, he still wont cut it in the prem, championship maybe but not the prem.He is not good enough for the prem, Rickie Lambert scored goals for fun in that division and is doing allright in the championship but there is no way Lambert can cut it in the prem and i am a saints fan, Rhodes will do the same sorry championship at bestThink the JR saga makes this website worth visiting alone! So funny winding up HTFC fans. fun n games innitThe boy is making people sit up and take notice that's for sure. Unfortunatley for Hud the more goals he scores the sooner he will get that big fat contract that'll be too good to refuse.RICKIE LAMBERT IS NOT WORTHY OF LACEING JORDAN RHODES BOOTSTOWN FANS ARE ON A HIGHRhodes must be going to saints,all the top players are goin there,Rhodes,Maynard,J-Rod,Rooney,Ronaldo,MessiTbf rhodes could make it in the prem but not without a go in the championship to build up first as grant holt did because he is holding his own in the prem and as baldock is more than likely going to do aswellSeen Rhodes play alot this season and to be fair hes a very good league 1 play but an average championship player. Going to the prem would be a mistake for him.Well he is going to spurs because roman what ever his name is ( the russian one) is leaving, defoe is loosing it and there were 2/3 spurs scouts and that wycombe game where they saw him score 5 so he WILL go!Firstly, Holt is doing well in the Prem so Lambert is more than capable. Rhodes is doing League 1 but is unproven even in the Championship. I'd say u don't always have to play in Champtionship as Pilkington and Bennett went from League 1 to Prem.


06 Jan 2012 21:15:29
get jordan rhodes on the bus saints ffs
got 5 goals tonight(14)(20)He got four in another game this year to.AllySouthampton fans always get carried away. Wake up n smell the coffee, you will be a yoyo club at best.^jealous muchYoyo club that why last time we were in the top division we stayed there for over 20 years27 years to be precise but SOME Saints fans do get carried away


06 Jan 2012 21:02:02
chris birchall to reject the offer of a new one year contract at la galaxy to join doncaster until the end of the season(4)(11)What would your choice be, LA or Doncaster?


06 Jan 2012 20:52:43
ruudi skacel at crawley town for a medical(2)(17)Skacel still wants to play for his national side.He wont get that with Crawley.And this talk about him going on loan is lies to.As his contracts up next week.He will leave Hearts then.Ally


06 Jan 2012 20:21:15
bumped into Ryan Stevenson (Hearts Player)today in Ayr and he tells me that he is just about signed for the Famous Glasgow Rangers, its just down to the Hearts owner to give it the ok.(3)(21)


06 Jan 2012 20:42:55
Just heard from a very good source that Frank Lampard is off to P.S.G(12)(29)


06 Jan 2012 20:34:45
Rhodes to spurs 6m u heard in here first!(8)(29)Anybody watching sky sports news would have that spurs have people watching him tonight, doesn,t mean they will bid for him, scoring goals in league 1 does not mean he will cope in the premier league, {Ed003's Note - He is certainly doing his best to impress }Just because joe jordan is watching him tonight does not mean they will sign him. There are 7 other premier league teams scouts there aswell.Must be watching sky sports Wycombe vs Huddersfield and u see Big Joe sitting in the stands watching him, so u assume from that he will be signed by Spurs.....
That's a big reach..................No chance, just because Joe Jordan and Clive Allen are there, pure speculationWot because you see Clive Allen and Joe Jordan watching him, there's loads a clubs and scouts at that game, he's scored 4 but the opposition are terrible tonight. Even would score 4 or 5 v that mobMake that his 27th goal. I think tomorrow there will be a lot of bids coming in for him. Hope he comes to Norwich, played with Pilkington. Can't see Lambert paying 6 or 7 million for him. OTBCAgree with the league 1 bit. But look at Norwich, bought league 1 players and they are in 9th, and they were players that had hardly proved themselves in league 1. Jordan Rhodes has just scored his 26th goal of the season. You have to be a top class player to of done that half way through the season. Even for the top premier league clubs, i think even though it may be a risk signing him, it's a risk worth taking.8 premier league teams have sent scouts to watch him. Yes, one of them may be spurs, but then what about the other 7 teams? Also saw Reading scouts there aswell. Probably others from the Championship watching him. Just because Joe Jordan and Clive Allen are there watching him, doesn't mean he's going to Tottenham.You will need a lot more than 6 0r 7 million for himSo Joe Jordan and Clive Allen decided on a friday evening to make a trip out to such a high profile match for no reason. Of course Spurs are interested in Rhodes you dipstick.And which club has already made a bid. Only to be ahead of all others as usual !!The big clubs won't pay the going rate & will get him on the cheap. money can turn any players head - if there are substantial wages to be had elsewhere then logic dictates that he'll leave,his current club will receive far less for him than the current prices being bandied aboutJust because there are scouts watching him doesnt mean jordan rhodes is going to sign for anyone.I watched Stuart Elliott score 29 goals in league 1 for Hull City a few seasons ago and he played as a winger, not a striker, just imagine how many goals he would have got that season if playing just as an out and out striker,What a rubbish signing Rhodes would be for spurs! hes nowhere near good enough, hope he likes reserve team football.I agree and I think he will go to Norwich as he is their kind of player and he will probably follow super pilks. Norwich is a better club for Jordan as if he went to spurs he would never get a game. If clarky wanted him to go somewhere apart from stay it would be norwich. From a hudds fanIf Spurs did sign Jordon they would loan him straight back to a championship club or Huddersfield if they go up, Spurs are not stupid enough to ruin the lad by playing res footie or bench warmingThink he would be a great signing at Norwich. But can't see us getting him. I think he is too expensive for us, can't see Lambert splashing 6m+ on one player


06 Jan 2012 20:18:00
Billy Davies is poised for a return to management with former club, Preston North End, after final negotiations were concluded this evening. Davies is expected to appoint former charge, Graham Alexander, as his assistant and will enjoy a significant transfer kitty in the summer if he can take the current playing squad plus loans into the League 1 play-offs. Expect a press conference tomorrow, however the news is almost certain to break with news outlets this evening.(10)(13)This not true billy is nt even in the countryDoubt thatBilly cant take the PNE job. Risdale is only looking at a manager who will work with the current players & backroom staff (and NO budget). Hemmings has bankrolled local team Chorley and Ridsdale has seen GARRY FLITCROFT do a very good job.....Flitcrofts considering the job as manger with Alexander and Unsworth in support. Ridsdale is currently searching for a buyer in the Far East/India for the club.


06 Jan 2012 20:17:29
Nathan Delfouneso signing for saints on loan til end of season to add flair to the squad. Puncheon will be used in exchange for Matt Phillips + cash.(15)(21)Stop talking crap saints, philips not leaving yet and when he does will be to a big club for big money not you lot of fools ,so stop making things up.


06 Jan 2012 20:06:55
Robbin ruiter agrees transfer to Southampton. Expect signing to be confirmed in coming days. A source very close to the club has also confirmed that Adam lallana will not move to any other club, and the saints will be pursuing a proven striker to at alongside ricky lambert. Nicky Maynard, billy sharp and simon cox linked. Barnard to got out on loan with view to purchase. Ryan Dickson, lee Holmes and lee Barnard have no future at the club and will be loaned/ sold in Januart.(15)(6)Oh right, who's taking on an injured Barnard and is that before or after his court case. Perhaps your close source can tell us. Oh and can you also tell your close source that Dickson's already been loaned to Brentford for a month.He's gone to Yeovil actually do your homework, and yeah it says loaned/sold in january and he's been loaned oh look at that it's still JanuaryHaha Brentford! Who is this sarcastic chump?! Brilliant when someone sarcasticly picks at a post and then gets their facts wrong! By the way the loan windiw is open until march time I believe? So I can definitely see Barnard lidted if we get Lee and another striker in.So i mixed up Dean/Dickson/Brentford/Yeovil and i might be a sarcastic chump but i don't list my wish list claiming it to be from a 'source very close to the club' and the original post says 'will be' not already has been. If your so knowledgeable how come you didn't tell us about Lee before the whole world did? I, like many mature Saints fans, are getting fed up with chumps like you embarrasing us with B/S.


06 Jan 2012 20:03:54
Free agent Lewis Guy to sign short term deal at Sheffield United after turning down Walsall.(6)(10)


06 Jan 2012 19:58:39
Kevin Davies has been looking at houses in Brighton today(5)(20)I heard a deal was done. bolton to buy piquanne and k. davies returning to big sam. plus he did say he wanted to be with sam


06 Jan 2012 19:17:19
Howdes of schalke spotted near Newcastle airport source my own eyes(16)(11)Got his autograph so I can't understand why anybody is disagreeing, being in Newcastle doesn't mean he's signing, just saying what I saw.Might be more believable if u spelt his name rightEver heard of a typo?Ever heard of bull


06 Jan 2012 19:54:53
8premier league club scouts watching jordan rhodes tonight including Norwich. Norwich looks like a likely destination for him after they have a good relationship as there manager Lee Clark used to be at Norwich.(11)(15)Nice time to score a hat-trick then!Won't be Norwich after tonights performance by RhodesI am sure Lambert would love to have him, but its a big gamble for any club, suspect after what I have seen tonight there will a few of the big boys after him, and they can afford to make a 6M+ add on's, gamble (which is what I think it will cost to have any chance of Huddersfield selling him now) Not Sure Norwich can afford that kind of gamble, but I for one think they should go for it. He reminds me of the finishing of Greaves and Fowler, just so relaxed and a natural finisher, and I think he would get the opportunity to be involved every week at Norwich, which would help his game improve rapidly, unlikely if he signs for one of the big 5/6 clubs, then in danger of being left in the reserves
with limited his chances and perhaps slowing down his development.
I imagine Pilkington has already talked to him about Norwich and the belief the players have in Paul Lambert, so I suppose its a remote possibility that we could get him.Spurs will get himHow do you know it was Jordan Rhodes, was he the only one on the pitch? To be considered a player worth around 5million surely you have to perform for more than about 20 gamesPrevious post what about Andy Carroll 35mil ????I think Chamberlain played less games than that and he was sold for 12/15M


06 Jan 2012 19:50:10
Just been to pick my tickets up for the game tomorrow and I just seen holloway walk in with Jordan Rhodes!!!!(2)(30)No, Rhodes is playing live on sky now!U obviously don't have sky!How's that when he's just scored for Huddersfield at Wycombe so that's not trueDeluded Blackpool fan he's playing for huddersfield right now he's scored 2 already!Must be a special player coz am watchin him tear wycombe apart on sky sports.just thankfull he scottish hes a real talentJordan rhodes who has just scored twice for huddersfield??quick turn around from blackpoolHe's just scored 5 going on 10Dont need him at bpool will be waste of good money co he wont do it in the prem.


06 Jan 2012 19:51:50
Doncaster set to beat Leeds and Rangers to the signing of LA Galaxy midfielder Chris Birchall on a 2 month loan deal.(5)(18)Christ I hope not...Donny fans he was woeful 2 years ago for Carlisle. Not anywhere near Championship standard.What a load of rubbish you speak, yes ok doncaster may beat leeds to his signature and quite frankly i pray they do but hes on a free so how can they loan him. stop reading the papers and then coming on here and repeating it without full facts


06 Jan 2012 19:41:45
Been to the ground today to pick up my tickets for saturday and I seen turner walk in with 2 players it looked like one was calvin Zola from burton and the other keith southern from Blackpool talking to jacko! Hopefully get them both in!(1)(5)Like the post before someone else noticed zola was about to kick off at burton when this was postedWhich club is this? when Zola left Crewe he would only move to a club where he could take his children to the same school and he wouldn't have to move house so couldn't see him moving too far from where he is nowKeith southern has tesicular cancer and is in recovery so dont talk nonsence


06 Jan 2012 19:41:13
Nile Ranger....Newcastle to Brighton on loan I hear.(11)(7)What position does he play! {Ed025's Note - striker..Ah the loan Ranger has reappearedHe's injuredTo be fair he played a few games for barnsley this year and to be fair he didnt do anythnig outstanding for me sorry.i wish him all the best just look vaz the goal machine

06 Jan 2012 15:14:18
Kebe will likely end up at Leicester even if he does accept the Reading offer.
He is joining Cardiff unfortunately
Southampton are going to sign Kebe
Leicester are going back with a new bid, Pearson isn't Ericsson though and says he won't be held to ransom. I doubt he'll be a Leicester player, but it's too soon for anyone to know, including the fella who thinks he's off to Cardiff.
Why would Kebe go to Leicester. That's a step down Matt Mills is learning that. Bet he wishes he'd stayed put. Kebe loves Reading and McDermott so it's Reading or back to France as I said.(4)(2)Kebe is currently in talks with West Ham, I do hope we dont get him he is a very average player! {Ed003's Note - You are rating him to high }I saw kebe today at upton parkMills couldn't wait to move from Reading, money talks and REading struggle to pay wages like leicester can so i can see Kebe joining for a good payday.I see the Leicester fans are waking up again. At the start of the season I thought you were going to walk the league with Super Sven and all the millions that were going to be spent. Looks like another season of failure and championship football for the foreseeable future.I heard Stoke City have come into the equation.. If that was to be true then Cardiff and West sham can count themselves out ohh and Leicester


06 Jan 2012 19:30:01
Carlisle have made an £80,000 for Swindon winger Matt Ritchie.(1)(10)Bournemouth made a 500 000 bid last week, that got re-buffed, so, i wonder what Swindon will do to that?Swindon will not be selling Richie this window! Richie wants promotion with Town and Swindon are not in a position to sell. Stop dreaming!Ritchie's thinking of a move back to Pompey. Cotterill was an person to sell him and Appy would be happy to have him back. Heard this from Joel Ward himself who's an aquaintence of mine and a good mate of Matt's.Swindon were idiots for turning that down, by the sounds of things he isnt playing well there and 500,000 for someone who is only proven in league 2 is ridiculousHave you watched him this season then? Because as it happens he has had a great season & has got the most assists in a Swindon shirt. Swindon would have been idiots for accepting in my opinion as they want to keep there best players and ensure promotion to league 1. Unless someone comes in with a ridiculous bid right now so that we can replace him for the same quality then we wont be selling i don't think.


06 Jan 2012 19:06:09
Ipswich to make shock £750,000 bid for Charltons Michael Morrisson!! Very very close and solid sources!!(9)(4)Shame it isnt steve morison of norwich.never mind ipswich you can dream!What the hell has Steve Morrison got to do with this story? Some Norwich fans really are too obssessed with stories about us. Quite flattering really! Mup!So Charlton are likely to consider releasing their stalwart centre back in the middle of the season? Would they risk loosing out on promotionworth 4m for 750K? Would Michael Morrison swap a promising start at a club that is going places for one fighting religation. Be honest, you ve not thought this one through have you?I'm a Norwich fan and I'll agree that it's stupid. Never understand why we want you to do so bad either. Sure it was amazing to beat you lot last season. I just wish we could have that same atmosphere every season:)


06 Jan 2012 18:59:02
real madrids higuain to sign for spurs good sourse watch this space.(11)(31)Lol

Jack Rodwell to Man Utd

Long term target Rodwell will switch sides of the East Lancs Road sooner than planned as SAF identifies a mini crisis in the centre of the park as being a problem for the title run in.
Everton would not want to lose another jewel so cheaply but a swap/cash deal including Gibson moving the other way seems likely(11)(14)An injured player to cover our injured players!! Yeah that makes sense!Jack rodwell wont go to man u ....Fergie wouldnt sell park


06 Jan 2012 18:28:26
blackburn have agreed a deal with liverpool for the signing of jn hoilett in the region of 10-12m(13)(10)Don't know if it's true but we need a wingerSounds possible, because they were also looking at Pilkington from Norwich, though I doubt they will need to pay 10-12M for a player who can go on a free at season end, no doubt Blackburn management Mr Kean will make all the right noises about having to sell because the player wanted to go, and they can use the funds to bring in more players.Heard spurs were looking to bring in both hoilett and samba, maybe some sort of exchange, bassong and pienaar + cash10-12 mill for someone who is out of contract in the summer?? Well it is liverpool and they do like to waste money


06 Jan 2012 18:27:05
harry kane of spurs to join bristol rovers on loan until end of season and also john bostock of spurs also till end of season.(3)(8)HES ON LOAN TO MILLWALL, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE TO SEE THAT HE'S GOING ON LOAN WHEN HE ALREADY IS. STOP MAKING UP ST

ruudii skacel of hearts set to return to dundee fc(0)(11)He has never played for dundee fc, therefore he cannot return.

Stoke transfer targets
Hoilett from Blackburn
Baines from everton
Zaha from palace
Barton from Preston
Kranjcar from spurs
Pienaar from spurs
Asharvin from arsenal
Lakuka from Chelsea (loan)
A few of these would be nice but as a realistic Stoke fan I'm not holding my breathe, this is the talk round here but I can't see most of them
Tony pulis if your reading this please could you get us Tim Cahill fav player of mine when in form lol thanks Tony(6)(22)Why would zaha move to stoke if he has already had an offer from liverpoolOh yes...'Lakuka'...i know him.Stoke, yeah alright.Why would a team like stoke want footballers .......they wouldnt know what to do with them1 Signing that will be made is michael uchebo, for a price of 1 million, a pacey, skillful striker, only 21, 6 foot 5. check him out on youtubeAre you having a laugh?! Baines, Arshavin? Get real. All good footballers want to go to Stoke apparently... yeah only if they want to play 'lump it' football?!"lakuka" do you mean lukaku or kakutaWhy would Baines go to stoke when teams like athletics and man city were interested this summer and zaha has just signed a new 5 year dealObviously it's Lukaku & Kakuta's love child.06 Jan 2012 22:21:26
Stoke, yeah alright.Kranjcar would infuriate you. He did it enough times at Pompey. Great player when he wanted to be, lazy as hell when he couldn't be bothered. No wonder he's found it hard to cement a place in the Tottenham squad.When the August transfer window was open, you so called football know alls mocked at the players that Stoke were linked to. Stoke are a well run club who can afford to buy players. Pulis takes his time with signings and normally gets it right at the right price for the club. Those that keep saying they can only lump it are now living in the past and are jealous of the progress that this club is making. Just because zahar as signed a five year contract doesn't mean anything other than palace can demand a bigger fee for him. Some comments are probably right, Arshavin etc may not entertain a club like Stoke at present but we are on the up so get used to it.None of them are over 6ft 4 so they won't be happening sorry

Anti footballI had to laugh at this, these targets would imply Stoke are interested in playing football, so it can't be true.


06 Jan 2012 18:13:54
Barcelona are looking to off load Hleb could be a loan move on the cards to man united for the rest of the season.(6)(26)On loan at wolfsburgWolfsburg terminated loan because of injury, therefore highly doubt itHe was offered to QPR and they didn't want him so why would Man UArshavin? just making it up


06 Jan 2012 18:13:31
Why the he'll would we loan Shane Long back to Reading?! And Jones is now a first teamer so why people think he's leaving is stupid. Allan move almost complete and Micky Maynard is well on the radar, chris Baird's status also being monitored but I'd like to see a bid for AJ(6)(10)Because Long thinks he has made a mistake going to the BaggiesI know it wont happen ,but i,d love the Baggies to go for Doyle from Wolves.Reading ent even in the same league as west brom!! so why would he think hes made a mistake??


06 Jan 2012 18:12:20
Wolves will listen to offers for Ardlene Guedioura as he is no longer in McCarthys plans, also and more shockingly are willing to let Kevin Doyle (even though he has just signed a contract extension) go as long as their valuation of the player is met (around £9M) this will free up funds to bring in Kenwynne jones as he poses a more ariel threat which suits wolves' style of play as a team that has an abudance of wingers that are able to provide cross after cross. Sylvain ebanks-Blake is also another striker they are willing to listen to offers for. A central defender is MM's priority, Nedum Onouha is first choice but as he is popular choice for many clubs wolves may turn their attention to Matt Mills whom they missed out on in the summer. rumour has it he isnt settled at leicester.(5)(17)They wouldnt get rid of ebanks blake as well because they want to off load keogh and vokesOUTS
Doyler 9m
Gueds 2m
Vokes 0.75m
Keogh 0.5m

K.jones 6m
N.onohu 3.5m
N.Maynard 2.5m
T.Huddlestone 3m

One can only hope........
Come on me babieeees.....Oh, so Wolves play with two wingers so it would therefore suit Kenwynne Jones style of play. Stoke play with two wingers but are labelled as a long ball team?T Huddleston 3 mill... U having a tin bath or what! More like 8 or 9Huddleston for 5-6 mil would be a good optionTodays rumours to add to above

Outs ;
Elokobi 1.25m
Blake 2.25m

Ins ;

The rumour about getting Mason Bennett on loan from Derby is in true. I have a reliable source that knows Mason and he says it's just a rumour. Don't put it on here unless it's a reliable source!(1)(7)Mason is 15yrs old - therefore can't have a professional contract. Players without a professional contract can't be loaned out.Yes they can look at eric dier at everton, its counted as a scolarshipBennett is still at school and its to the point where even derby have to get permission frm his school to allow him to play and he loves where he isMason bennet will not go anywhere (yet) in the future he will go somwhere in the prem he is a good playerEric Dier is 17 (nearly 18) so not the same thing at all!

It is now rumoured that Coventry City have tabled a bid for AFC Bournemouth's Warren Cummings as they feel the experienced defender could help shore up their leaky defence.


This is looking a real possibility as this rumour has now been confirmed by a number of reliable sources.


Look at Sky Blues Talk, the Coventry forum. Cummings is a definite target.

this will never happen! he is quite old and doesnt even start for bournemouth(8)(4)Have you ever seen this guy play? Wouldn't waste the money!


06 Jan 2012 17:51:00
Spurs have bid for Hulk of Porto. A very decent source.(9)(25)Chelsea are already in talks over a contract with him so that is just rubbishA1 Garbage!Yes because Spurs have 84 million to spend on one player.Yes in talks not signed so spurs can make a offerHighl unlikely. modric, van der vaart and adebayor on form (not at the acn because he retired) dont need to spen 50mil.At that price let him go to chelski and be another expensive flop. 84 million so u telling me he is better than Ronaldo i think not. I hope he likes playing in the europa league lol. COYSI didn't know the spurs owners had 84 million + to spendHe wouldnt cost 84 m thats his buy out clause he would cost about 40m


06 Jan 2012 17:48:42
Scott Allen has just passed a medical at the Hawthorns. Watch out; he will be sold for £5 mill in 2 years time he is that good a prospect. Well done Mr Ashworth (If he signs of course)!(12)(4)This guy is going to be a big starHe has only played 8 games so how do you know he can even cut it?


06 Jan 2012 17:45:33
Billy Davies has been offered the managers job at Preston North End, however he is keen to see that the clubs ambition matches his own. Therefore he has asked the Deepdale club to sign Rangers striker John Fleck on loan till the end of the season to show there intent for a promotion push.(5)(6)Why would he step backwardsFleck staying at jers because of injuries,if billy has the same ambition as pne then see you in div 2 billy,100 years since the titanic went down,another white junk going same way.Billy is currently in Europe on a FIFA backed training cource. IF he was taking the job....dont you think he would be in the UK. The reason why he wont take over at PNE is the club is losing a confirmed 750k a month, mid table League 1....with no budget for players.


06 Jan 2012 17:42:59

Blackpool have offered Kevin Phillips to Watford plus £2 million in exchange for Marvin Sordell.
Phillips would look forward to reuniting his close ties with Sean Dyche's hornets(2)(16)We dont want him, and Sordell is well out of Blackpool's reachPhilips twice the player and we dont need an over rated over paid ego we had enough of em in the past, go to fester they have anyone who cost more than they are worth.Why would billy sharp go to leicster when there doing rubbish hes coming to middlesbroughWhy are so many people getting excited over Sordell and Jordan Rhodes. They are just having a purple patch in the lower leagues. Lets see them do it for a couple of seasons and then perhaps transfer fee's in the seven figure bracket might be justifiedSordell has already done is for 2 seasons....

He got double figures last year and has 9 this season already9 goals so far this season?wow. Demba Ba a free transfer has scored about 13-15 goals in the premier league not at the bottom of division twoDemba Ba is a 26 year old International Striker playing for a side in the top half

Marvin Sordell is a 20 year old kid playing for a bottom half side

Why are you even comparing them? Demba Ba is the finished article, Sordell is a fantastic prospect


06 Jan 2012 17:17:14
Billy Sharp has been offer 25k a week at Leicester and will sign in the next week. This will allow Hull to sign Waghorn on loan again.(6)(15)Pearson won't give Hull Fook all, not after the way he was treated!!And just how was he treated then-very well i would say-why did he come to hull in the first place or have you conveniently forgotten

Not that you could work that out from an armchair.Current results say that it is a strong possibilityThe rumour is true and if accepted the choice is his, yeah we are not setting the prem alight but at least we are shwing intent by bidding for these players what are Blackburn doing ??

06 jan 2012 16:46:56
aston villa

all interested in steven davis northern ireland international but he will cost 7 million atleast(4)(12)He's an average player in an average league. Nobody would pay 7million for him!Villa cant afford him and why sign 4 wolves who will get relegatedJust because the league he plays in is not that great doesn't mean he's not a good player. I'm a Celtic fan and have to admit he's been the stand out player in the SPL for 3 years. I would say he's worth 7 million if not more, especially if average/poor players down south are going for close to 20 million(Henderson). It really infuriates me when people say the SPL is rubbish when there is extremely good players in it (that are better than alot of EPL players) are there ranked as only being worth 2 million max because it is the SPL. Wise up.Why would he go back to villlaMate I'm a rangers fan and i can't quite agree with you. Though the spl is often targeted it is nowhere near Epl standards. Davis had been good but he did not make it in the prem before, so i would say max 4million. Too bad the rumour is utter sankTrust me villa can afford him they just wont pay 7 million for an average player.Name these top spl players !Steven Fletcher wasn't exactly a top SPL player when he left hibs for burnley and he's now bangin them i for a struggling wolves side. SPL isn't as bad as you lot try to make out. SPL 2 Horse race every year, EPL 2 Horserace every year. EPL is a poor mans La LigaLA LIGA is a two horse race every year. EPL is getting closer each yearYip La Liga is a two horse race every year i agree with you but the standard of football is far superior. Bit like the national sides, england think they can win the world cup (they can't) spain know they can win the world cup they are current holders. English fans are deluded, english press are even worse though

How can anyone know the exact price of a player, only the club involved would know the price, rumours are normally made up when people say the price.

Carlisle interested in striker John Sutton on a loan deal.

The man couldn't even get a game when he was at Wycombe in league 2 a year or so ago. NOT HAPPENING!

We've already got Miller (target man), and team is scoring plenty at the minute. One striker/wing-forward to be brought in as cover for injuries, and a defender on loan.(2)(2)

Southampton have had a bid accepted for FC Midtjylland right back Kolja Afriyie. The Ghanain's contract runs out in 6 months time and is available for a reduced fee after the player rejected contract talks.(5)(15)Seems unlikely, right back isn't a position we need to strengthenIt is. Butterfield & Richardson as opposed to fox & Harding on the left - we definitely do need to strengthen.

Manchester United are poised to make a move for Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra. Sir Alex Ferguson is a long term admirer of the Frenchman and sees him as the solution to his midfield problems.(13)(12)Course they are, i bet Fergie was lying when he said that he wouldn't be signing anyone because the caliber of players available in January is second rate at best. I bet he said that to the press then rang you to tell you what he was really up to.Fergi needs new players about 11 of them everyone knows this bar him long may he realise thisAt this moment in time most of United's players are second rateAll I can say is I can't wait to see u in the championship next season fergieThat means all teams below man united (all bar man city) must be 3rd rate then......

Bolton manager Owen Coyle is set to make a bid for highly rated Kidderminster winger Dave Hankin. Hankin has scored 1 goal this season. Bolton are set to bid a £1.5million bid for the Blue Sqaure Premier player. This comes after top scout Tom Ryder reccommended the player to Owen Coyle and various other Premiership teams. Ryder has a successful track record of signings, such as Chris Eagles and Nigel Reo-Coker.(3)(8)Cant really see how much a scout would have been needed in the signings of Eagles and in particular Reo-Coker as both have been playing top level football (Prem/Championship) for the last 5 years or more with their traits/skills/abilities well known...

Tottenham have made official bid for kaka on a 6 month loan to buy deal. They have also failed in a late bid for cahill from bolton as they only looked to do a swap deal. Tim krul is also in harrys plans and would welcome a move to london. Hunterlarr dutch striker has also been watched as a personal reconmendation from van der vaart(10)(15)Tim krul will not leave newcastleOh yes he will, heard Ba has a 7-10m buy out clause in his contract and tottenham are very interestedBullst, I think every team in the world is aware of hunterlaars form atm, nullifying the need for recommendations from van der vaart, that's like aguero recommending messi to Mancini. Everything you wrote is a lie.


06 Jan 2012 13:43:07
Onuha will not sign for QPR as he wants to stay in living in cheshire, which makes Bolton favourites for his signature with the departure of Cahill tbc in the next few days but also gives Wolves a chance of signing him if he does not want to go to Bolton(10)(2)QPR are trying to sign him but he does want to stay up north due to family reasons so looks unlikely

League 1 table toppers Charlton and Championship Derby, have joined Barnsley and West Ham, in the race to sign Northern Ireland left sided player Shane Ferguson, from Newcastle.(2)(6)Ferguson is in pardews plans for the futre so he wont be going anywhereThat's charlton barnsley and west ham out of the running and before anyone says why join derby we are probably the 2nd biggest club in championship behind leeds.West Ham are better and bigger than Derby, most likely to pick the Hammers over hopeless Derby County!A loan deal........... -_-

Darren Pratley linked with a loan move back to Swansea City. Bolton are also looking to take Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea as it was proven with Daniel Sturridge it can be a big success.(1)(8)Bolton can't take Lukaku as they already have Kakuta on loan from Chelsea.

So that's rubbish. Just another wishlistRomelu Lukaku cannot leave Chelsea on loan as he cannot play for three teams in one season, this has been highlighted many timesHe can't play for 3 teams in the same calendar year. Stoke tried to get him on loan and were told to come back in January.Actually lukaku can go on loan as long as its called an emergency short term loan 1-3 months but only to teams in the football league. now you do your homework!

Norwich City will NOT be signing k.naughton.Spurs are ready to offer him a new contract.He will still remain at Norwich city till the end of the Season.(7)(11)Rare season in prem and Norwich fans think players like that will want to sign permanently for their small club,keep looking at L1Keep looking at L1? Are you stupid or something. 9th in the Premiership after christmas, no doubt you support some mediocre Championship side though...Pilks from L1 how good is he say no more dopeWould make sense actually if Corluka leavesPilkington is a quality player....dont get to big for ya boots tho.blackpool,burnley hull??We don't need small clubs like Norwich Bolton wigan in prem with your small fan bases.forget about Kyle norwich fans,pilks is nothing.Yep, that's right about Norwich fan base, we only got an avg 25,000 in div 1, 26,000 avg in Championship and now we fill the stadium every week in premier which is just under 27,000. Plans are in place to increase to 35,000 if we can maintain premier football for 3 years, and I have no doubt we will fill it if it gets built.
So we compare quite well with many so called bigger teams.
All the so called small clubs in premiership deserve to be there, because they did it through promotion, in most cases without buying success using wealthy owners. So their achievements are far more impressive than the so called Big teams who run up huge losses that their benefactors eat from their own personnel wealthFound this in Banter and thought it fitted well "Errr...Norwich clearly belong in the premier league. They're average attendance is 12th in the top flight, and including all leagues it's 14th in England. Only West Ham and Derby are better from outside the top flight. Go home Leeds, no one likes you."^I agree mate we deserve as much credit as the man city's and the other money revolved teams out there and people don't appreciate the job paul lambert has doneWeren't Blackpool in the top half at christmas last year? Norwich only get such big crowds because they have little or no competition for other clubs. How close are the nearest premier or champioship teams? is 50 miles a fair guess?I think it's 60 actually. So yeah they do only get the crowds because of that. I think the nearest game for them this season is tottenham which is 110. However the reason they have such a fan base is irrelevant. That's like saying the man united only get big crowds because of success. They still get them. Your argument is invalid. Plus I think you'll find that despite being in the middle of nowhere they still sell all their away tickets as was shown when they came here (d w stadium).There are roughly 14 million people in London and 14 football league teams in London. Norwich has a population of roughly 300k. I think you can guess the point I'm trying to make. Having lots of people in an area is all well and good, but you have to make them want to come and watch too

harry redknapp is ready to move for blackburn pair chris samba and junior hoilett.(10)(7)Junior is a certain for Stoke, I'm a Blackburn fan as far as were concerned the deal is nearly complete for 8 mill, fuller moving opposite direction, Stoke are a club on the up good luck to themWell the ball is always on the up with Stoke, I'm surprised they don't have to use de-icer on the ball for the amount of time its in the air.
Good luck to them its been sucessfull, but I am so glad Pulis is not managing my club Norwich, because I could not watch that stuff week in and week out, I would rather see Norwich in the championship playing football if the only way we could stay in Premier is resorting to 11 muscular 6 footers nd hoofing or throwing it into the penalty area all the time.Typical 'small' team attitude and I hope you are back in the Championship where you belong. Why don't you just deal with it and shut upHee Hee Hee - not heard that one before !! Stoke play to their strengths - nothing wrong with that at all. Be careful what you wish for re the Championship. You're hardly established in the Premiership yet - remember second season syndrome.Stoke wont get hoilett when qpr n spurs are after him, qpr wanna buy everyone n will offer stupid wagesThe stoke fan is missing the point, you are only a big team because your rich benefactor has paid stupid money for some dismals failures, what did to pay for Jones from Sunderland, and he cannot get a game ahead of John Walters, if your club was self supporting it would not be spending its way to success, either way most Norwich fans are with me on the style of football to be played, we recognize we are a small club in regards to funding, and may well go back into championship ,but we are a massive club in terms of fan base support ratio to population, and a team spirit under Lambert to rival any of the big boys...Dream on Norwich fanNorwich fans getting ideas above their station already. Isn't Grant Holt a battering ram centre forward? With regards to having a wealthy benefactor, to be successful over the longer term all clubs need one. How much did we pay for Kenwynne Jones? 8million over four years. To help you out, that's 2million per year

even torres back at liverpool wont make them a good club ready to compete.


Newcastle - face it, demba ba will leave in the summer pending his knee holds out(10)(12)Wild guess man u fan?Not so sure about the rubbish club and to be fair they took a risk on Ba, something we weren't prepared to do and I don't think that Ba will go anywhere due to the knee problem, he struggled to pass medicals at WHU and Newcastle, issues around the insurance. Well done NUFC, you took the gamble and it has paid off.I assume you are a 'fan' of one of the Manc teams (and therefore probably have no idea how to get to the ground let alone never visited).

We certainly have had a recent history of dodgy purchases granted, but to call Liverpool a rubbish club is laughable and highlights your idiocy.What was the gamble he went to west ham on a free then newcastle on a free transfer .yes everyone including ba no,s about his dodgy knee,s i think if he gets certain types of injurys then would have it covered via insuranceNewcastle 3 Man Utd 0 read the score dumass as for a go at lpool how many strikers have you got and paid well over the odds who did zip ,your time is coming to an end Man Utd so wind it in, happy new year.Ba wasn't that much of a gamble if he was signed on a supposed free transfer, if there is such a thing


06 Jan 2012 11:57:46
As part of the Scout team at West Brom, i have heard about the Comings And Goings. Most Players are happy at WBA at the moment so they will not be many departs but Roman Bednar will leave for Brighton for a fee around £1mill, and Billy Jones also Departing too the Championship with Doncaster. West Brom will make a few bids, Hodgson will delve into the market and make a 2Mill bid for Jason Puncheon, followed by trying to gain a loan deal for Owen Hargreaves and Frimpong. they will also make a sneaky bid for newcastles james perch and Rangers Kyle Lafferty. Overall they are only willing to spend £9Million(0)(16)Frimpong?
Him gone.Hargreaves would be pointless, only played about 3 games for Citeh and bit late regarding Frimpong, he started for Wolves against Chelsea last Monday.Shows how in the club u are frimpong already at wolvesLafferty out injured for 2 months....keep tryingYou can have perch for nothing. the fans will probably pay you to take himWest brom are to small time for lafferty...hahaJones is regular RB playing well,
Frimpong at wolves
Lafferty injured, not good enough anyway
james perch struggles at the toon,no improvement to what baggies already have.
Puncheon aint worth 2 million and Bednar
will probably go for half that if not out on loan,there...sorry to piss on your bonfire..And if you want to give us 2mil for Puncheon then ill strap him to my bike a cycle him up to you.Baggies have serious injury list at the moment,why would they take a gamble on Hargreaves with his injury history?

From VERY reliable sources - Hartlepool United will see the return of Michael Nelson from Scunthorpe to play under Neale Cooper who has recently returned to victoria park. Same goes about Dimitrious Konstantopolous the greek goal keeper who played under cooper in successful spell at the club in coopers first spell at the club.

Demba Ba and Cheick Tiote will both stay at newcastle till the end of the season then leave in the summer. permitting Demba Ba's knee stays in condition it is currently.

Newcastle will bid 1.5 million for Jordan Rhodes from Huddersfield.

Chris Samba will sign for spurs for 8 million as spurs need more strength at the back following recurring injuries to Ledley King and William Gallas.

Liverpool will Spend 15 million on Darren Bent who has admitted he wants away from villa.
Eden Hazard will join anfield in the summer in a 25 million plus joe cole deal(10)(10)West Ham have already had a bid of 3m rejected for Rhodes, why would Newcastle bid 1.5m?LOL - West Ham had 3 Million rejected for Rhodes!!
DREAM ON....Why would Huddersfield accept a bid of 1.5m when they have already turned down over 3m from WHU. The only club that Eden Hazard will join will be the ones in ECL. L'pool fans need to stop dreaming that players like Cavanni and Hazard will join, not a chance.With Dawson back, i'm not too sure about Samba

06 Jan 2012 10:23:16
Lets put the double epidemic of Norwich rumours to bed once and for all...

Naughton-not signing permanently, wages too high.

Snodgrass-Leeds not selling, Bates will let him do a Beckford if necc, makes the player look the bad guy, not him/the club.(8)(1)Naughton wages too high? He was signed from Sheff U, his wages will be low.

You must remember, Norwich are a premiership club now, not like these small, living in the past clubs like Leeds...I'll think you'll find naughton was signed on loan from spurs u muppet!Norwich will never be half the club Leeds utd are!Lambert said this morning that Naughton deal is a "no go." Suspect we will revisit it if we stay up but not going to happen in Jan.

I have heard some interesting rumours about Snodgrass though so that one could happen.Naughton wasn't signed from Sheffield United, he was signed from SPURS - wages will be too high unless he agrees to a pay cut.Snodgrass is not going anywhere, we will be in the premiership next year and thats when he will get noticed and probably get sold for a 7 figure sumPlus neither of them want to play for a side on the slide or go and live in the backwoods and be forgotten.Re Snodgrass lets wait and see shall we. Rumours I have heard (which come from the Leeds end) suggest done deal. No way leeds will be in the prem next year.Naughton singed from sheff u to spursLeeds in premiership next season, you are sounding like a chump saying that, no chance for next season.
I also take exception referring to Norwich as a backwoods, the east of England has enjoyed the highest property increases along with London in the last couple of tough years, so clearly not many people will agree with your comments.
And quit living in the past, Leeds are just another average championship club now who still get fairly large crowds, although nothing like you use to enjoy.
Face facts Mr Bates does not pay huge wages anymore, and yes,usually your players leave at contract end because they are offered substantially more than Leeds are prepared to pay. He then slags them off so he is not targeted, examples are Bradley Johnson and Schmeichel.Just to clarify the point above with a few facts. Johnson delibrately didnt show up to two meetings with Grayson and Bates concerning his new contract, so that they could negotiate his pay increase. This was after he rejected two improved contracts. From this attitude; that of an individual who will pretend to be headbutted when he is simply being intimidated, Mr. Bates concluded that Mr. Johnson did not want to play for Leeds United, and allowed him to leave. As for Schmeichel, he was on 16k a week, which is quite a hefty wage for any goalkeeper outside the top flight. That is why those players left Leeds.
As for Bates, he will demonise anyone in the press simply for the sport of it. Thats just the kind of person he is, it seems. I guess we Leeds fans just have to grit our teeth and bear it for now.

After Baba Diawara deal looking to be dead, Celtic turn their attention to striker Nicky Maynard and out of favour Wigan forward Hugo Rodallega.

Rangers set to sell Jelavic to Everton for a fee around £7 million. Looking to replace him with St Johnstone striker Francisco Sandaza.

Hearts fan favourite Rudi Skacel set to be let out on loan to Crawley Town for remainder of season.

Stuttgart's Arthur Boka is set to leave when his contract expires and has attracted major interest from Tottenham and Chelsea.

Celtic midfielder Ki Sung Yeung set to complete £6 million move to Aston Villa with Carlos Cuellar or James Collins going the other way.

Robby Brady extends loan stay at Hull City to end of the season.

Liverpool look to follow up their "over-paying policy" to sign Darren Bent for a fee of around £25-£30 million.(6)(13)Where on earth do think everton will get 7 million from,even if we sold players tight arse bill would say theres no money {Ed025's Note - unless the jelly man wanted the lead role in blood brothers!..Obviously everton would pay in installments like they always have to, but a deal could be struck, dont let the money problems fool you!Absolute nonsense. ki cant even get in the Celtic teamHe'd still walk straight into the villa 1st team even if it was true, which it aint.

and the reason he's getting few games right now is because he's just back from a virus and still isnt 100% fit and our midfield have been playing fantastic the past 2 monthsRudi Skacel has said no to Crawley Town. ha!Ki walk straight into the villa team dream on bhoy

And yes our hard working Shane long who has already scored a few in the prem isn't half the player of the prolific Kevin Doyle! We've dropped points in our last 2 games due to our mounting injuries with 7 first teamersDamn iPhone! - 7 first teamers injured/playing injured! We will buy this month, just west brom go about there business quietly! We have faith in Roy hodgson, I'd be more worried about the dingles with mad mick in charge!Long twice the player Doyle is! hes played half the ammount of games as Doyle this season and scored twice the ammount of goals..

"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 problem"

Nick Barmby didn't say anything of the sort. He HINTED about not taking the managers job fulltime if any player he wanted to keep was sold. Anyway if that's your line of thought, Barmby has just announced he is now fulltime manager so money can't be a problem can it?(1)(4)

Jermain Defoe to be loaned to stoke for the rest of the season. Crouchy has been showing him around the city.(7)(19)Gimp. Stop writing crap rumoursI am a Stoke fan and even I do not believe that and I can't see Spurs letting him go anywhere at the moment. I know he is not a regular in the starting line up but what a fantastic backup if you have an injuryShowing him around stoke?Well said old bean.


06 Jan 2012 09:33:42
I posted this a couple of days ago !

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.
It has now been confirmed that Wes Fodderingham will sign it all today and that Swindon have bid a substantial figure for Rooney...

There are now three clubs requesting Bodin be loaned to them until the end of the season, Kerouche is unikely to ever play for the club again the door wasn't shut from Paolo's point of view but he has been sulking and disrupting the dressing room, he will move in this transfer window.

We have put an enquiry in for Ross Allen and are also looking at another experienced striker who plays in league 2.

all look to be on their way out of the club, bodin will only be a loan unless a club offer a six figure sum then town will make it a perm move.

Magera is unfortunately here to stay, Paolo likes options and he gives a different option PDC is still hoping he will come good (god knows why).

I have been told we are tracking two midfielders 1 plays in league 1 and the other is a championship club squad player.(8)(2)Kee wont be moving this month as by fifa ruling he can only play for two clubs in a season and he has played for torquay before he moved to us (Burton). Have also heard that Esejas is moving to burton aswell

David James to be signed by Aston Villa in a shock move back to the premiership(4)(14)This will not happen, Aston Villa would have to pay big money to take james away from City in January, he is out of contract in August so anything could happen then, can not see a prem club wanting to sign a 42year old keeperIn fairness though, Spurs did go for Brad Friedel...Spurs will replace Friedel in the Summer with Vorm from Swansea, sorry Jacks, but he bound for a top 4 club.


06 Jan 2012 09:11:57
Nicky Maynard to go to norwich for 4.5 million(7)(16)4.5 mill for maynard just shows how football
has gone crazyHe wont go for anything near that price. He is allowed to sign a pre-contract after january under the Bosman you will be lucky to get 1.5M...serves you right for not selling in summerNot selling him in the summer? The ONLY Summer bid came from Leicester, it was offered to Maynard who said he did not want to go to Leicester. Nothing at all to do with City 'not selling him'. He is under contract and not a slave so if he didn't want to go there is NOTHING the club can do about it. This is all fact from the Manager's mouth in an official interview so can we finally stop all this 'you should have sold him when you could have' nonsense?Delia's recipe's must be selling well?Maynard maynard maynard wot has he done thats so good and if hes that great why are bcfc so poor this year?


06 Jan 2012 09:09:04
Swindon have tabled a bid for Like Rooney at Gillingham and Paolo is also targeting two more strikers expect alot of activity next week with a number of players also moving out.

I've also heard Cardiff are scouting Matt Ritchie tomorrow and will be tabling a bid next week.(10)(2)


06 Jan 2012 09:07:55
speaking to a sports reporter last night and hinted on the below
how true they are?

Maynard - 5 clubs interested 4 championship 1 prem - however only 3 clubs have tabled a bids
leicester southampton and bolton with saints in with the top bid,

Billy Sharp - DONNY looking for cash + player deal (poss loan) Sharp has expressed that he'd rather stay up north (Newcastle) however there is big interest from down south -
WestHam have tabled a bid with saints Cardiff and Reading expecting to table bids by close today Jorden Rhodes - blackburn have offered 3.5m however looks set to join westham

Jimmy Kebe - looks set to Join either Cardiff or Southampton

Hamit Altintop - Spurs
Lucas Barros - Villa

Kroos - Westham (loan)(7)(16)Good rumours - nice to see someone on hear with some good one'sCardiff couldnt afford Kebe whatsoever. Leicester have not made any approach for Maynard...nor will they. Expect them to make a 3Million bid for Sharp soon!Kebe will only be allowed to go to a prem side for big money.Good rumors i believe uve taken em from papers or other ppls comments so uve posted something everybody already knowsAs Ive said on ere for a few weeks now billy sharp will stay at doncaster till the end of the seasonBilly Sharp has said he'd rather not move from his home in Sheffield, which for the record, is absolutely nowhere near Newcastle.If thats the case, leeds should buy him in a part ex for paynterWhy do people keep linking saints to maynard and sharp? BBC radio solent said Adkins is not pursuing either player this month.Its a lot closer than some of the clubs Sharp has been linked with

Yeah 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...

Small club? Your name says it all, the fact of the matter is that we were prepared and had agreed to pay over £7m for Ba, then once there was a problem with his knee, we pulled out. So Newcastle signed him on a free transfer and we were prepared to pay money..who's the smalller club in terms of ambition?(4)(11)The only thing massive at Newcastle is
Mike Ashleys gutLOL! Stoke are a small club exceeding their status. Newcastle are a big club performing way below par! If you really think stoke are a bigger club than Newcastle you are very much mistaken. There are clubs in championship and league 1 way bigger than stoke. The league standings arent reflective of the size of a club. Just cos yous are in europe doesnt make you a big club! Silly football brain!Newcastle are smaller than you think, have they won anything the last 10 yrs ? oh ye the championship! u need to keep up with sunderland before worrying bout stokeThe league standing of 1 place? means there actully the same but wasnt ashley trying off load newcastle not long back?? say no moreAnd wat have stoke won in the last 10 yearsNewcastle is way bigger than Stoke. Larger ground, more fans and better potential for the future. They also play better football than stoke. You think of premier league teams and Newcastle comes into your mind way before Stoke (unless your a stoke fan lol)

(Im a Neutral Yorkshire man)Leeds fan but Newcastle = waaaaaaaaaay bigger than Stoke.Newcastle fans - Wanted Astley out - never wanted Pardew and look at them now "we are a big club" If Newcastle fans would have had their way you would still be in the CC if not lower.Newcastle's bigheads are bigger than stokes by far, arrogance of geordies is unrealHow long have newcastle been in the prem? and what potential are u refering to? theres no such meaning in football because it comes down to what club hes the chairman with the biggest pockets and the club with the least debt so it can maintain a future and be self relaible on its own income and maintain a standard ..when u look at both clubs stoke come out on top every debt /self surported on its own income and a chairmen worth 3times as much as ashley and doesnt try off loaded it when the st hits the fan ..its no long about fan base or history its about economic well being ..who cares who won what last year or the year b4 cus the only thing that matters is the economic year ever yearStoke are a disgrace to football. They have played over a 100 games in the Prem yet have only had more than 50% possession once! Yes once! Small club, awful City and the fans are some of the scummiest aroundI'm partisan here, but I have to confess that I would pay money to watch Newcastle, who play for their team and to keep opponents at bay at all costs, but then you couldnt pay me to even consider watching Stoke. They are a disgrace to English footballing tradition, and I'm almost embarrassed to watch them representing us in Europe. Greatest respect for Pardew, I didnt think he was the man for the job, like everyone else, but he has done brilliantly. As for Pulis, I think his attitude is poor, especially on the touchline, and that he should stop trying to con refs into giving him decisions when his own players are blocking goalkeepers and diving into illegal challenges. Just my opinion.
wallyFootballing side newcastle scored two goals against man u with a long punt up field take your rose tinted glasses off newcastle utd fansOne thing cannot be levied at Stoke is that they dive or Pulis tries to influence the ref from the touchline and I cannot understand how you can say that his attitude is poor. Stoke's players never crowd a referee. Our discipline is also improving. At first we were somewhat excitable when we first reached the premiership but we are getting better. Pulis is a hard working person and he expects his players to do that.I am a Newcastle fan, newcastle are a bigger club than Stoke Fact. Check out the history you muppets.

06 Jan 2012 02:33:29
from a very reliable source i can tell everyone that aberdeen are looking to bring in john sutton on a free to replace scott vernon who is departing the dons in this transfer window to join either- watford
crystal palace
the dons have reportedly agreed a fee of £425,000 for the big target man(2)(2)Sutton has never really had a chance at Hearts as the "big target man" system is not favoured by the manager who prefers to play with the ball on the ground. Pity as he's a proven goalscorer and will do well at a club who can use his strengths.Where are aberdeen getting 425,000 from, even with the 250k sale of foster they are still in massive debt and looking to build a new stadium.As a Hearts fan i would like to keep john sutton, whenever he has featured hes played well scoring & assiting a few & from what ive been hearing a number of english and a couple spl teams are looking at him for a loan.

HES TOO GOOD FOR THE PREMIERSHIP! HE WILL BE AT BARCA IN THE NEXT COUPLE OFF YEARS.Part of me is glad he is injured, don't forget he was league ones leading scorer till he got injured. He could well be around the 20 mark if he had been playing and he might have been off.

The Benneton family link is very strong, They have strong connections with sports of all kinds and would buy a club with no debt and a firm fanbase. It is attractive due to the land avaliable which is currently owned by Sacha Gaydamack and in a depressed property market also at a cheap price.
This is the real deal!(3)(2)They'll buy a club with no debt and an excellent fanbase? Do they have good money?

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!

I know for fact that Pearson won't get anyone from Hull City....FACT!!(9)(20)Kebe is discussing his contract todayYou're talking utter codswallop, ANYONE from ANY club is available to ANY other club if enough money is on the table. Dont be naive.Im a leicester fan and would have to agree that any signing from hull will not happen unless stupid money is involved. its a business at the end of the day but personal feelings will stop any normal bid so stupid money will be needed to outweigh the personal feelingsSo far, Leicester's only bid to Hull was the 'mischief making' 1m bid for Stewart, there has been no improved bid for him yet and no bid for Chester at all. That really is a fact.

Long by a country mile. Boing Boing

Swansea City are preparing an £8million pound double swoop for Middlesbrough stars Matthew Bates and Marvin Emnes. Dutch striker Emnes impressed Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers while on-loan at the
Liberty Stadium last season, scoring 2 goals in 4 appearances for the Swans.(0)(12)Why pay 8 Mill when combined they're probably worth 4 tops?Both players are out standing fella they would do a better job than swanseas strike force and their defence is crap 4 mill what a joke you are mateEven thpough weve got the best defence at home in the premier league and middlesborough are a championhsip club. We beat you 4-3 last year, shows how good your defence isSwansea dont have that kinda money, they will be looking for loans mainly

just back from snooker and been told rob green will be going to sunderland for sure. good luck to them as green has lost his confidence and will need a strong defence in front of him. fee will be around £3.5m. darren bent will NOT be going back either but expect about 3~4 signings as oneills been given £25 -£30m for the transfer window with another £45m to come in the summer.(1)(13)I saw a post like this before about green and i will say the same thing i said then. Why would sunderland want another keeper when they have 4 in good shape. Gordon, mignolet, westwood and carson. Please do some research before you postYes, that is stupid to think Sunderland is looking for another keeper. We have 3 very good goalkeepers and unless one of them leaves, I don't see it happening. Green would be 3rd choice keeper even if Gordon left. Can't see it happening.Just because you have four good keepers (and I agree with three of them, never seen Carson play) doesn't mean you're not after Robert Green. Man City have got five quality strikers on their books but they still want more! I agree its highly unlikely that MO'N will spend money on a keeper but its not impossible!Gold/sullivan said yesterday no key players will leaving west ham unless a player request a move and then we would want top dollarsThats like saying if some1 makes a offer for a player and they want go they can lol so they will be soldto any1 the player wants to signe for lol dumb state from gold/sullivan againJust back from snooker but can't stop talking balls!Craig Gordon is better than all those keepers.If he proves his fitness,bet you that he will get a new deal.O Neil rates him and would have signed him for Celtic.If he could have afforded him.Ally

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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??

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.


05 Jan 2012 18:11:55
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)


05 Jan 2012 18:10:58
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

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.

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

No3. A consortium headed by Pompey Rock Star Eddie Howe ( The Less famous Bad Co and Ted Nugent vocalist)
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.

Darren Mackie (Aberdeen) to Dundee Utd, before the weekend cup games(6)(5)How come every time a transfer window opens, United get linked with Mackie? 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

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?

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

Ipswich Town are hoping to land Millwalls winger James Henry during the January transfer window.

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.

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

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.

Maynard Not Coming To Saints As Hes Going To Fulham Or Everton(11)(9)To be honest i don't rate Maynard that highly and would'nt mind dipping out on him even if we were interested. I think we have a better quality player arriving in Tadanari Lee, even if unproven in this country. 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

Rangers to bring in Freddy Adu to strength there attack(1)(14)Rangers have no moneyWhy would someone disagree to the statement 'rangers have no money' its a FACT they dont!Most likely 1 maybe 2 loan deals this window for rangers. Nacho novo and scott vernon are 2 whom mccoist has earmarked. Also ian blacks sitaution within the hearts wages fiasco being monitored.

either wolves are gonna sell some players for big money or you,ve been reading the express and star.Yes if mad mick has only 4 mill think Doyle will goWhat a load of bullstActually spearing goin on loanWould be silly for liverpool to let spearing go on loan since they have just lost there holding midfielder lucas for the season...

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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)

ac milan 2 bid 15m for demba ba,,,if they sell pato 2 psg or chelsea(8)(28)They wont buy until they realise the trouble with Demba Ba knee.nobody will ever invest a lot money in him.simple!And if Carroll was worth 35m last January Ba must be worth at least 40m.Cash outlay to returns ratio ? it really is no contest even if the season ended now !Demba ba has scored more than rooney and aguero so why would he only be worth 10million ? are you trying to say torres is 5 times better than ba ?1 - he said 15mill
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

fergie to splash cash out after 3 0 defeat at newcastle. he's so disappointed with the team's performance, and will buy sneijnder under £25 mil, and hummels maybe, £12 mil as phil jones doesn't suit playing cb and ferdinand's too old+ he's havng poor games atm, and vidic is out for rest of the season.(12)(17)Sneijdner maybe but another defender I doubt finger has trust in jones to play cb or anywhere in defence12 for hummels no chance at least 28 million
