07 Jan 2013 20:01:16
Leeds United will complete the transfer of Alan Judge on Thursday/Friday for £500k, however there is a 50% sell on clause held by Blackburn so not all the funds will be heading to Meadow Lane.

As part of that deal Davide Somma will switch to Notts on loan for 3 months.

Also inward to Notts is Matt Green from Mansfield, the club had been tracking the striker since November but hadn't been able to make a move due to finances and also Mansfield's reluctance to do anything until after the FA Cup tie with Liverpool.
The transfer will be undisclosed but hints suggest it will be around £50k

Lee Hughes will join Port Vale on the 8th Jan once he has completed his medical

Despite rumours Jonathan Forte is not a target for manager Keith Curle as the Magpies can't match his wage demands.

Finally Jeff Schlupp will be loaned to Notts from Leicester City until the end of the season.

May just appease the Notts fans

Bristol City have made an approach to Swindon for Paul Caddis. A rumoured £400,000 bid has been submitted.

Derek McInnes has also asked about the availability of Manchester United defender Scott Wootton. It will be a loan move for the rest of the season as the young defender is expected to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.

Also on the books is Frank Feltscher, The Midfielder has been on trial and if he impresses will be offered a loan with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

Neil Danns is having discussions about his future with Leicester but it is thought Nigel Pearson doesn't see Danns having a future at the club and Leicester will ask Bristol city to stomp up £900,000 for the midfielder if they wish for his services. The midland club will not do a deal until the two clubs meet on Saturday as they don't want Danns playing against them.

Funny that, I was at ST until late and no offer had come in. Must have been by pigeon to Canio's loft. {Ed003's Note - Can't be only the Yorshire PO still use pigeons}



07 Jan 2013 19:17:16

Aston Villa see Ausin as replacement for Bent who has fallen out with Lambert.
However, Burnley want him to end of season so Aston Villa set to buy him for £8 million and loan him straight bck to Burnley till end of the Season.

So villa mega rich are they, considering they already offered 12 mill for graham

Why on earth would they pay that much to loan him back to possibly pick up an injury and become worthless?



07 Jan 2013 18:31:09
earnshaw expected in london to speak to milwall palace and charlton there is about 12 clubs after him .he has already spoke to kenny jackett on phone .heared straight from the horeses mouth

07 Jan 2013 17:36:35
Loic Remy deal looks 50/50, he needs time to think if he wants to join QPR, but Redknapp looks to persuade him. Yann M'vila to QPR looks more likely with the west london side tabling a 6.5mill bid for the french international.

Remy will not play for QPR

6.5m for M'vila! Yeah, & the rest.



07 Jan 2013 17:27:09

Sources close to me say Notts County striker Lee Hughes is set to complete a loan move to League Two side Port Vale, until the end of the season.

I have also been told Sheffield United midfielder Dave McAllister is set to sign for Shrewsbury Town on a permanent basis. (Mr T)

Correction to this sorry. It is a permanent deal for Lee Hughes, NOT a loan move. (Mr T)

Although this is a rumour site lets get some facts out there!

Lee Hughes yes going to port vale been mentioned on the tv

Dave Mcallister yes in talks about permanant move

Irish lads no!

Grimes thing possible dependant on personal terms the 200k loss will have no affect, the chairman made it clear we are in a better position than most!

All facts goodnight {Ed003's Note - night.}

Liverpool in for Astori



07 Jan 2013 16:47:59

07 Jan 2013 16:15:58
Manchester United look most likely to sign highly rated CPFC winger Zaha.Manager Alex Ferguson says he "expects" to sign him and his pay should be closer then totthenam to the 20 million mark.Although it will need to have certain clauses to interest Palace.For example players on loan from Man you and Zaha till the end of the season to help boost promotion chances.

20m for a championship player-footballs gone mad

No, 20 million for an England international and the best prospect in the English game.

One of the best prospects in the English game, I think Sterling is in front of him at the moment!



07 Jan 2013 16:10:39
Ipswich have offered £750k plus 20% sell on clause to sign Kenny McLean from St Mirren, the offer just meets St Mirren's valuation and he'll have a medical when he returns from injury in 10 days.

Barnsley Outs:

Matt Done 250k Crystal Palace
David Perkins 400k Crystal Palace
John Stones 2.5M Wigan Athletic
Stephen Dawson 350k Birmingham City

the new manager will sort out the Ins for the rest of the transfer window.

Matt done have him
dave perkins going nowhere
john stones anybodys guess
stephen dawson going nowhere

If you ever get one

Birmingham aint got a penny to spend fact! if any deal for dawson it will be once a high paid player moves and a loan deal.

I respect we are a selling club but these fees seem very low for good battling midfielders that we spent some money on... Perkins and Dawson deserve higher price tags and clubs that will love and respect them because they give everything for the cause

We will have no team left soon if its true about all the bids we are receiving

07 Jan 2013 21:52:46
As anybody thought about Paul jewel proven at this level. Just one blip at Ipswich

Dawson has requeted a move to b, ham thats where all his family live



07 Jan 2013 16:27:18
Bradford have completed the perm signing of Chris Iwelumo this afternoon .Bradford did wan't him on loan but watford only looking for a perm deal. He signed a year and half deal.

he is in talks with preston north end

He has played for Phil Parkinson before at Colchester United. The deal will be confirmed on Wednesday hopefully.

07 Jan 2013 20:09:18
Be a good signing for us if true

Chris Iwelumo finalising move to Valley Parade Wednesday after turning down Preston North End

We will see but don't think he has

Chris is still having fitness test - started early this morning with 100m sprint, apparently floodlights have now been turn on to help him see when he finishes..... {Ed003's Note - should not be put on rumours,but made me time don't post as a reply,just submit it and it will get on banter,who knows we might start having a laugh on there instead of posters slagging each other off.



07 Jan 2013 16:25:43
the posh are after either clayton donaldson of brentford and jake cassidy from wolves after scoring double digits for tranmere already this year

Donaldson is going to cost you a few bob to get him out of his contract aswell as being Brentford main striker as the push for promotion and he's scored 15 goals already!!

Tranmere have first refusal on any loan deal



07 Jan 2013 16:21:50
Plymouth Argyle
In: Neal Trotman
Jordan Bowery (Loan)
Liam Dickinson
Out: Nick Chadwick
Rene Gilmartin

Bowery is a good shout, young and energetic! Forbes or Trotman as CB, Dickinson maybe as CF or perhaps Craig Fagan, would say Riordan but was pants for Rovers! Eddie Nolan is a good CB also need a centre mid Andy Dorman think he is at Carlisle not sure if he is getting a game!



07 Jan 2013 16:01:54
liam Dickenson due at Gillingham on Wednesday.

No chance any league 2 side can afford his wages, most of league 1 sides can not afford his wages either that is why, that is why he is still at southampton!!

Still injured



07 Jan 2013 16:00:02
I'll give a true one for a change, today Mowbray confirmed Josh McEachran is staying with Boro until the end of the season despite rumours he will be recalled.



07 Jan 2013 15:55:42
Reports in that Southampton will complete the signings of Astori and Coutinho tomorrow. Astori has agreed personal terms.

Love this to be true

Granted the Astori deal is apparently close but any agreement for Coutinho is still some way off, if at all.

Please let this be true, are we actually going to bid for the young German keeper ter stegen? Even if he is expensive I expect he will prove his worth on the pitch and in a resale.

I hope we get Douglas from Fc twente could do with some dominance at the back. I do however rate yoshida and feel fonte has given a good account of himself since coming up from champ.

This would be....AMAZING!



07 Jan 2013 15:51:25
Shrewsbury set to sign sheffield united midfielder David Mcallister.



07 Jan 2013 15:51:09

A whole host of league one clubs are interested in signing Nambian midfielder following his release (today) from swindon town. Stevenage leading the race but MKdons and Crawley are also interested in the 32 year old

He's signed for Aldershot

Stevenage decided not to make the move permanent. Having talks with Bradford City and seen at their training ground today. Linking up with good friend and former Town player Alan Connell.

To late has signed for Aldershot

Thats funny because he has signed for aldershot.

No half decent team will want him he did nothing for Swindon, he is a backup at best

Too old for crawley building a young squad



07 Jan 2013 15:35:15
steve lomas next doncaster rovers manager



07 Jan 2013 15:34:52
MKDONS looking to sign 35 year old Lee Bowyer on a short term deal until the summer, he is looking for a club. MKDONS also looking to sign Rob Earnshaw on loan as well although Barnsley are also interested in the striker.

Hes back wakey wakey

Earnshaw is back at cardiff



07 Jan 2013 15:16:20
Brighton interested in spurs player Iago Falqué, can play as CAM or on the wings.

07 Jan 2013 15:03:57
Terry Butcher at Oakwell this afternoon for talks, after Inverness Cally` gave Barnsley permission to talk with him regarding the Oakwell post.

Terry could be a good choice plus can work on a small budget



07 Jan 2013 15:03:26
Aaron Ramsey joining Aston Villa on loan this week



07 Jan 2013 15:00:52
Craig Davis of Barnsley is reportedly set to accept a contract to move to Championship rival's Bolton.

Scott Wiseman, also of Barnsley is set to move to Blackpool after Barnsley accepted an offer from Appleton's men earlier today.

Will be glad to see back of both. Wiseman too mistake prone and Davies useless since the first Birmingham game, doesn't care or want to fight for us, as per that woeful penalty miss that lost us game against Birmingham at home

07 Jan 2013 20:03:45
Wiseman is considering Blackpool's contract offer, which, if Karl Oyston is true to form, will be very low. So don't count your chickens-you may still be stuck with him!



07 Jan 2013 13:56:22
Cheltenham and York are battling it out for Paul Benson, Cheltenham look the more likely to win this race

Benson turned down a move to Bradford City because he wanted to stay down south. York are not in the race to sign him.

He won't go north, so count out York.



07 Jan 2013 14:59:28
Just seen David Villa coming out of a hotel in North London! Rumors around Arsenal are that he is to sign on loan till the end of the season

Barcelona will only accept permanent deals but we will sign him



07 Jan 2013 14:57:45
Crystal Palace are reportedly set to make a double swoop for Barnsley pair Matty Done and David Perkins. Done was linked with a move to Palace last summer, but the move never materialised. However now with Done in the last 6 months of his contract Barnsley have decided to cash in now rather than lose him for nothing when his contract expires in the summer. Perkin's has 18 months to run on his contract and with a number of other Championship clubs interested, it could prove to be a battle to get his signature. However he is likely to be impressed with Palace's league position and fancy his chances of reaching the Premier League next season.

Nothing is doing until the new boss is installed. done might go but i can't see perkins going, as he has 18mnths left, unless it is an astranomical offer !!

Yeah Done is nearly signed but perkins will be ahrd to get, he shouldcome considering the position we're in aswell as his teamate going.

Perkins is not out of contract in the summer. He signed a contract extension in the summer until 2014

07 Jan 2013 17:33:41
Done deal!



07 Jan 2013 14:56:32
Simon Church is set to stay at Reading until the summer when Millwall may renew their interest (unless the player can negotiate a pay off). Millwall are set to seek out other targets. Seeking a striker, a left sided midfielder and possibly a left / centre back (if DS goes to the African Nations).

Why do they need l/s centre half Lowry can do that job what about Malone is he not a left back/midfielder

Church is still going to Millwall.

We will end up once again with players that no other club wants just because of a few thousand pounds! Most decent championship players get 10K a week or more, its as simple as that im afraid! Church is in a Premiership squad, we can't expect to get him for a fiver! Sometimes you just have to take the gamble and pay the player what he wants otherwise get left behind!

And end up skint!! Get real - we get 10,000 attendance - We offered Wood a 5 figure salary because he'd proven his worth and could add 1, 500 to the gate by himself - Who's to say Church is worth that?? Not exactly set the world alight before. It's not just the money you pay him but it would unsettle other senior players who would want parity!!

I don't want to state the obvious but we are in with a good chance of making the p/offs this'NOW' would be a great time to maybe try & spend just a few more quid on maybe 1or2 decent players that would help make the difference to our season!PLEASE COYL!

Church can't be that bad otherwise KJ wouldnt have bid £250K for him!He obviously likes/liked something about him! Might not be Wood but given the chance he just might have been the answer!Will we ever know?



07 Jan 2013 14:52:38
only players i see stoke getting is 1 full back probably ghoulam and 1 striker charlie austin or rickie lambert not much money in the budget after the training ground improvements so no big expectations

Don't hold ya breathe with regards to Rickie Lambert, coz your not going to get him, so you better hope you get Austin, but then there will be a queue for his services if he becomes available

WHU have been told Lambert is not for sale. Do you want to waste your time as well?

Won't get Rickie Lambert, he's not good enough. I can see Mauro Zarate being a possibility



07 Jan 2013 14:45:52
Shock news coming from keepmoat stadium, John Ryan has long been a friend of David Beckham and has enquired about the possibility of him becoming player boss! Sounds unlikely i know, but not to be ruled out as Beckham looks at returning to the UK {Ed025's Note - i can rule that out for you..

Beckham back in london, my removal firm moved him in (notting hill area) im told he going to west ham!!!



07 Jan 2013 14:45:41
Cheltenham manager Mark Yates is set to make a double loan swoop for Swindon pair Paul Benson and Luke Rooney.



07 Jan 2013 13:55:10
Mido is currently training with Bradford city and we will decide in the next few days whether or not we will try sign him

Hope this is not true, waste of money would take most of the rest of the season to get match fit.

Dont touch him with a barge post waste ov space good luck against villa boro fan



07 Jan 2013 14:35:26
Mick mccarthys main target as Ipswich Town manager this window will be to sign Alan Judge, George boyd(or a similar alternative), Darren ambrose and DJ Campbell although accepts that Campbell is now likely to stay at Queens Park Rangers and if he cannot get him he will not sign a 'panic striker' and will stick with the players he has already signed. I'm not saying these deals are definatly going to happen but these are definatly McCarthys top targets. My uncle used to go to school with McCarthy and remain close friends

All relatively believable till you get to "My uncle used to go to school with McCarthy and remain close friends", then you know it's just all rubbish..



07 Jan 2013 14:29:10
Huddersfield town are in talks with free agent Craig Gordon

Would be a great signing, but think he will go to a big club, if his knee is ok.

Could be a good move. Win Win for club and player. Bennett now just about ready for retiring and Smithies needs competition.

Midfielders needed lads!. go again for danny pugh, ok in championship.



07 Jan 2013 14:02:26

Not true as Oxford's only bit of business imminent is the swap for Helop and Reed with York.

terry butcher set to be new manager



07 Jan 2013 13:45:05
Adebayo Akinfenwa will stay until the summer and then be allowed to leave on a free transfer.

Northampton are looking at this summer to spend a fair amount of cash on the squad as the ground development deal is finally given the go ahead - meaning chairman David Cardoza is willing to put more money into the club in the form of a much needed cash injection - therefore there will be very few transfer movements in the January transfer window at Northampton.



07 Jan 2013 13:42:04
free agent liam Dickenson to join shortly

Cameron Jerome is set to sign for Cardiff City withen the next few days...

That's our chances scuppered then.


Haha i liked Jerome just as much as any City fan at first but he has lost it i heard 4mil i think a bit too much when we can get a player like him for less, every city fan has heard of Malky going after Sordell and i would welcome him here he got plenty of goals for Watford with limited chances imagine if we could give him more he could be a 20 goal a season player Boltons play doesnt suit Sordell but Malky's play has prooven it suits him

07 Jan 2013 17:40:45
what do you mean redbird cameron jerome is one of the best strikers we've ever had and would score atleast 15+ goals for the second half of the season which equals to around 20+ points

I hope not. past it he hasnt played back to back games for years



07 Jan 2013 13:17:12
Cardiff City are set to sign Cameron Jermome from Stoke for 4million, Along with John Brayford from Derby for 2m for thier final push for promotion

What a laugh cameron aint worth 4 million!

Would never pay that much for Jerome. Good to see him back though.

In the current climate a striker who has played and scored at premier league level goes for inflated prices. £4million for jerome is not too much. How much did Jordan Rhodes go for? Sordell never made it at premier league level.



07 Jan 2013 13:16:45
The Doncaster Rovers board have come together to talk about a five man shortlist.
Their first choice is thought to be Crawley manager Richie Barker. Donny have been impressed with how Crawley have made the step up this season and believe the 37 year old will help them push through with promotion.
Former Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll is expected also to hold talks with the South Yorkshire side after he turned down Barnsley over the possibility of a return to the League 1 side.
West Brom goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely, Ilkeston Town boss Kevin Wilson and Grimsby manager Rob Scott are also on their shortlist.

Leicester are in talks with Ryan Giggs with a view to signing him on an 18 month contract as player-coach. Sir Alex has advised Giggs that he will not stand in his way if he wishes to move on.

This would be awesome, I doubt its true but it would be cool...

If he did leave man utd i can guanatee you he would not be going to Leicester! The only other place he would go would be to Cardiff City!

07 Jan 2013 13:07:13
Barnsley have told caretaker manager David Flitcroft to bring in a striker to replace the outgoing Craig Davies, who is set to sign for Bolton.
'Flicker' will also be named as the number two to the next new boss, giving him the chance to bring in a new striker.
The former Rochdale, Bury and Macclesfield player has identified 23 year old Rotherham forward Kieran Agard as their main target.

Don't think he'll quit would have by now be ok when transfer embargos sorted chin up uts



07 Jan 2013 13:07:02
West brom have had a bid accepted for Danny graham by Swansea! 3.5millon, whether it will be a loan first is unclear, personal terms have agreed fee already! This could pave way for lots of movement, odemwinge would be sold to villa, Sunderland or Newcastle

They signed him for 3.5 mil. Two and a half years left on contract. There is absolutely no chance they'll let him go for the same the paid for him. They'll probably want at least 5m

Yes true. Odemwingie or long leaving. Odem to n'castle for £4m. Long to lazio for £12m

We paid 3.5M when he was a championship player now he's a proven premiership striker with 14 goals last season and 3 in 3 games this season got to be nearer 6M maybe more. I really hope he stays as I rate him highly

No way will Odemwingie be leaving the club in this window, no matter who West Brom sign, key players going nowhere.



07 Jan 2013 13:06:59
Real Madrid plan 3 prong raid on Premier league...

The Barnsley board are expected to be turned down for their approach of Inverness manager Terry Butcher.
They are set to turn their attentions to Brentford manager Uwe Rosler but could also be rebuffed as they Griffin Park side are challenging for promotion in League 1.
Third in line is Motherwell manager Stuart McCall. The former Bradford manager impressed last season with Well finishing 3rd. McCall has managed and played in Yorkshire and may be interested in taking over the struggling South of the county side.

Can't see uwe rosler leaving Brentford to go Barnsley!! Brentford seem to be going somewhere and have a big project going on! There director of football mark warburton was wanted by west brim and he turned it down! They've got a new chairman who is a actual supporter pumping in money a new 25,000 seater ground on way and the team is playing championship level football and he would get a decent CV if takes them up!!



07 Jan 2013 13:01:06

O driscol set to takeover as bristol city manager within the next 48hrs, O Driscol has been spotted in the bedminster part of the City

That doesn't mean it's definite it could mean that's he's only had a interview and he could have failed it...

Get big joe jordan please

Must have been impressed then to be wandering around bed minster maybe he was shopping in one of the many charity shops

If O'Driscoll is the new manager, don't city have to sack Mcinnes first ?

Joe jordan is a cert

If you read he is expected to takeover from him in the next 48hrs which implys mcinnes is soon to be out



07 Jan 2013 12:18:55
just heard that K Richardson is all but a done deal
moving to the addicks on loan until the end of the
season with a view to perm move in summer. not sure if thats good or not? lost track of him really

Was a great servant for us at sunderland, would play anywhere you put him...had that prolific spell playing behind the striker but is equally adept at left back! Not sure whats happened at Fulham like?!

The sooner you take him the better, he's been dreadful for us this season, you know things are bad when fans cheered him getting injured at arsenal away



07 Jan 2013 12:11:40
Bradley Wright Phillips to join Leeds Utd.



07 Jan 2013 12:10:53
QPR misfit Sean Wright-Phillips name bring thrown around as a possible suitor, with Redknapp needing to offload to gain funds for his wish list.
Also rumours in their plenty over Inter Milans young Brazilian winger Phillipe Coutinho being a possible target, heard that a loan with a view to buy in summer type deal maybe the first.
As a saints fan am happy to again see the quality of players we're targeting, seems that Nicola Cortese is prepared to continue to back Nigel Adkins financially and that dispute our league position we are building a youthful and talented squad that will leave the club a foundation to grow and develop into a legacy.
Saints mad
Up the saints
And it's all Southampton

Can't see us going in for Wright Phillips. He's not that good. Also Redknapp doesn't need to sell to bring in. QPR have quite rich chairmen with no financial responsibility what so ever.

But I do think the 3 names I have heard on your 2 posts which I think are likely targets being Phillippe Coutinho, Davide Astori and Douglas would make us an incredible side and one to watch next season in the battle for Europe potentially.

Would love both of those players, especially coutinho he looks class also nice to see cortese use italian links



07 Jan 2013 11:50:26
Andy Bishop will sign for Wrexham this week on a 2 year contract



07 Jan 2013 11:48:53
Kevin Blackwell to leave Bury FC by mutual consent in the next few days. He believes the club has broken promises to him and influential supporters and some on the board think he is damaging the club with his outspoken comments



07 Jan 2013 11:50:01
Davide Astori in talks with Southampton trying to agree terms, seems like Saints have out bid Napoli and Aston Villa to land the 26 year old Italy central defender for 12m
Seems likely that a second centre half will follow as a deal is being discussed for Fc Twentes Douglas. his contract expires in summer and they may accept cash plus Jos Hoiveldt who may be happy to return to native Holland.
Despite Nigel Adkins declaring no interest in bringing in a new keeper, there are continuing links to former target Jack Butland, from cash strapped Birmingham. Perhaps paving the way for the sale of Kelvin Davis.
Seems likely that at least one flair player will be also brought in as cover for Adam Lallana. QPR misfit Sean Wright Phillips

Astori yes ! Butland possible But Wright phillips not a chance ! why would we evan want him, Hes been over rated all his life

When Southampton out bid Napoli or Villa then please pinch me because i'm having a dream!

Yes please to astori and douglas both class defenders

Astoria and Douglas would be brilliant. It may cost us an arm and a leg but what price staying up? We would if these two joined for sure.

Villa? Really? I thought they had no money?!

Kelvin won't be leaving as he has already signed a coaching contract at saints for when he retires at the end of the season



07 Jan 2013 11:48:20
Bradford's bid for Posh's Daniel Kearns has been rebuffed after agreement had been reached earlier. Kearns may now be on his way to South Yorkshire

A reliable club source expressed his view that that should teach the Bradford chairman not to ask for further changes after the deal has been agreed

07 Jan 2013 19:01:07
Not too bothered we need a defender and striker first not a midfielder/winger we have enough players for that area of team

Everton looking at SWFC telented young midfielder Ryes Mcabe, who has impressed throughout the season, and Everton have been watching him closely ever since he left Rangers FC

McCabe will not be sold. As a shining light in a poor season so far the youngster signed on a four year deal last summer is seen as a future captain and an important 'building block' in DJ's long term plans.



07 Jan 2013 11:25:58
SWFC to sign Leroy Lita in the next week on a two-year-deal, with swansea telling him he has little chance of first team football, with michu and graham in form, 100 % true

Thank god for that good luck to him



07 Jan 2013 11:11:00
Aguero has got personal problems and wants a return to Spain. If Man City can get a deal done with Napoli for Cavani, they will sell Aguero to Real Madrid.
If not this tranfer window, Aguero will definitely be leaving in the summer!



07 Jan 2013 11:06:39
Arsene Wenger's dithering and wage structure could see QPR pinch Remy and M'Villa from under his nose...



07 Jan 2013 11:04:01
Newcastle battle QPR and Arsenal for Loic Remy..
Although Pardew could turn to Douglas at FC Twente...

So he'll turn to a centre back if he can't sign a striker? doesnt make real sense

Torsten Oehrl, the German FC Augsburg striker, is interesting Millwall. Sheff Wed, Bristol City and Leeds also known to be in pursuit.

Oh my days, he was brilliant for me when I signed him on a free for Port Vale on FIFA 12!



07 Jan 2013 10:35:44
The move of Greek under 21 Andreas Labropoulos from OFI Crete to Peterborough is on after the Greek club accepted a bid, this was reported in Greek press, and is also on the Peterborough today website, the website of the local newspaper

Darragh MacAnthony has tweeted....

"Just been with the Gaffer & he is very excited about this new Greek superstar he has never heard of haha!"

McAnthony says its a load of rubbish never even heard of him

LOL, i was the only one here to mention Lampropoylos and nobody believed it..Oh well. He is a decent enough player, reminds me a bit os Stan Lazarides on his style, but is employed on a central role for OFI.



Why would we spend 300k on a goalkeeper when we already have 2 decent keepers?! Haha these rumours get worse!

Now that IS a rumour, no club, no players name.

Be a help if "we" were defined....i.e what team!

07 Jan 2013 12:00:44
Shrewsbury town buying a young goalkeeper from leeds for 300k aparently LOL



07 Jan 2013 10:12:23
Danny Graham. not for sale, says swansea boss

Of course he isn't. Why would we sell a class striker like Danny Graham? Him and Michu together are quality. Also all the strikers mentioned on here we are supposed to be linked with wouldn't get in our youth side.



07 Jan 2013 10:10:22
Gillingham have made a formal bid for andy barcham of Scunthorpe utd

Cheltenham will sign Paul Benson on loan for the test of season this well



07 Jan 2013 09:41:15
danny graham to west brom is now a done deal.. they have beaten sunderland and norwich and reading to the signing. will be annouched by end of the week

So if it's a done deal... why will it take possibly up to the 'end of the week'? to announce?

Unless they've got a good replacement lined up I can't see them letting him go. Pretty sure he has 2 and a half year contract remaining. Also it seems like their main target iago aspas staying until the summer.

No it isn't!

07 Jan 2013 13:31:22
Graham played yesterday! His first training session with be Thursday/Friday, Wednesday it will announced in public, just squad numbers, the routine scarf picture, etc

Laudrup has told the media that he will keep him so I'm afraid that you are giving false news. He will stay at Swansea.

Rubbish rubbish.... graham is very good mates with holt its already been siad he could snub offers to link up with holt

Swansea manager has said he is staying at swansea

Training thurs/fri? he will be on his own then as the entire west brom squad are in Dubai!

Aston Villa possibly. Definitely not West Brom.

Yer but managers always say there players arnt goin anywhere next day they are gone!



07 Jan 2013 09:40:48
Liam Trotter will be having a medical at leicester in the next couple of days.



07 Jan 2013 10:25:20
ive heard from player himself, graham is off to west brom, also why he didnt feature v them last month as it already agreed

Not because he was actually quite ill??



07 Jan 2013 10:20:46
Gillingham fc are shortly set to sign striker joe garner of Watford fc on a permanent deal with jack payne going as part of the deal in the other direction.

Can't see this happening. Garner likely to go back up North

The same garner who is joining preston on a 18 moth contract

Garner has gone to carlisle



07 Jan 2013 10:20:13
Huddersfield Town are to sign goalkeeper Craig Gordon, centre back Danny Batth from Wolves (loan), centre midfielder Gary O'Neil from West Ham and Dundee Utd striker Jonny Russel in the january transfer window.

Oneil, no way, he hasn't really got over his bad injury and not playing regular football, Baath the same, why would we want a Wolves reserve and when they have just got a new manager?

Rubbish i know him and he isnt moving

The important personnel in or out news that I am interested in is when will Simon Grayson leave Huddersfield Town? Im not bothered whether he resigns or is sacked but he must go and soon to give the new manager a chance of keeping us in the Championship. Grayson will take us down.

O'Neil last I heard was talking about taking up professional golf and trying to qualify for the Open. Dorrans would be a good buy but would he drop down a league.

Wolves reserve? Batth has been linked with Premier League Clubs previously, i'd be delighted getting him, Johnny Russell wouldn't come though

07 Jan 2013 18:47:33
Another person town fan. Grayson is doing well to sort the mess left by Clark. Give him a chance there are much worse teams than town who will go down first. Sign a few decent players and we will end mid table Which I'm my opinion would mean a fantastic season



07 Jan 2013 10:18:14
Chris Iwelumo has agreed a 1 year deal to move to pne having further discussions held over the weekend, the move will be announced shortly.

I hope this is not true. 6-7 years ago he would have been a good signing, but now he's past it. Ask any dingle what they thought of his stay at Burnley!!!



07 Jan 2013 09:55:01
Scott Wooton of Man you to go on loan to Bristol City for the remainder of the season.
The 6ft 2in defender will help to stiffen a defence without a clean sheet this season

Local press have confirmed that Bristol City have made an approach

Bristol City and Blackburn both interested In signing Brighton defender Lewis Dunk

Sunderland going down with qpr and both fighting for scraps in a transfer market with them two clubs bottom ofte pecking order



07 Jan 2013 09:24:57
Non League keeper Jack Bennett (AFC Telford) is on trial at championship side Peterborough, he looks likely to sign as possible contenders for Olejnik and Day

Is this the same Bennett that played sunday league before? He must be good

Be a shame for Telford to lose him as he's a talented lad, but you've got to let the lad go on to bigger and better things!

He had trials at Hull in the summer amoung others, he didnt do anything to stand out in trial matches



07 Jan 2013 09:16:30
Liverpool and Tottenham are looking to secure the signing of Kevin Volland from 1899 Hoffenheim. The German under-21 striker leads the assists table in the Bundesliga and has been in superb form this season. Bayern Munich are also hoping to complete a deal for the highly rated 20-year-old, which could see him join after the end of the season, not during this transfer window.



07 Jan 2013 09:16:29
Huddersfield are looking into finances to bring in Sunderland player fraizer campbell. Hull city are heavily linked with the striker who I believe Steve Bruce is a huge fan of but Campbell is from huddersfield and still has family here. Also an enquirey re vaughn on a permanent deal but Norwich reluctant to sell.

Frasier Campbell was born in Huddersfield but if he has any sense he will go to Hull. I am a Town fan but my common sense logic to this rumour is that Hull have a greater chance of returning to the Premier League than Town plus Campbell was in loan at Hull when they secured promotion to the Premier League previously. As a player, what would you do? - I know which way I would go

You can remind campbell of where he's from all you want, but at the end of the day, he actually supports man u. he's more likely to go to hull i'm afraid.

Why do any hull city fan even want campbell, he can't score and has only had 1 good year in the last 5,



07 Jan 2013 09:05:02
Paul Benson joining Cheltenham after rejecting a move to Bradford. Deal agreed set to be announced in next couple of days.

Good luck to him hes not wanted at VP

Good luck Paul top man did well for stfc get another medal this year!

If Benson wasn't wanted by Bradford, why did Parkinson offer him a permanent contract?



07 Jan 2013 09:00:38
darren bent is set to return to sunderland for a fee of £9 million . martin oneil has said that he needs more attacking options at the north east club as they have only scored 21 goals in as many games this season



07 Jan 2013 08:45:00
Wolves after a new striker after just one win in 7. Their targets:
Matt Derbyshire - Nottingham Forrest
Marvin Sordell - Bolton
Simeon Jackson - Norwich

Derbyshire really?

They could have Jackson if the price was right.

Matt Derbyshire from Forest or Matt Forest from Derby?

Jackson would destroy the Championship again

More likely Derbyshire than Sordell, Bolton would want a lot for him, or Jackson, when he is Norwich's only fit striker over the age of 19!

Agree with this post I don't get why people give Moro so much stick, the bloke is a good footballer. Yes he might not run around like a headless chicken for 90 minutes like Holt, which admittedly does make him seam lazy. But when a chance arises he is always in the best position to score, e.g in and around the box. Now think about this one, now or the next time you see Holt play. How many times will you find him out on the wing trying to cross the ball when he would be far better off if he was in the box getting on the end of the ball? Maybe this has some baring on his reduced goal tally so far this season? Maybe Holt needs to be more direct like Moro? Oh and before people bring goals into it, Holt who has started more games has 4 goals, Moro who has mainly been on the Bench still has 2. Any argument that if not injured and given a good run of games he wouldn't stat scoring regularly? Form comes with games. Finally I think selling would be a mistake and some Norwich supporters wouldn't realise this until its to late.



07 Jan 2013 08:43:01
Graham to west brom by end of the week!
Odriscol will go back to Doncaster too!
Also do not rule out Newcastle to make a cheeky punt on Charlie Austin'

SOD will not come back to dony
Aidy Boothroyd maybe
Iain Dowie, Paul Ince, Nick Barmby even Alan Shearer if we are looking for young managerial blood



07 Jan 2013 08:40:06
Plymouth Argyle


Liam Dickinson
Craig Westcarr
Neal Trotman
Ryan Dickson (loan)


Onismor Bhasera
Nick Chadwick

Craig westcarr going to walsall and good luck if you take trotman you will need it.

07 Jan 2013 11:44:16
I would'nt sell Bhasera but I get rid of Feeney, Chadwick and Gilmartin.

07 Jan 2013 12:28:34
i think liam dickinson is having another ankle operation this week so i doubt it

Get Dickinson in but Dickson is to much money and on big wages

I would take Dickinson and Dickson but the other 2 are not any better than what we have and thats saying something !!!!



07 Jan 2013 08:31:12
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has today lodged a £2m bid for Norwich City striker Steve Morison and plans to hold contract agreements with the player throughout the week.

Thanks Paul your doing us one hell of a favour.

Great news for norwich fans mr lazy is on his way to villa

Yay!! from a Norwich fan

Only issue is that they will need to pay 3 mill minimum!

Would not mind this as long as we are guaranteed to sign a striker or two. Hopefully Hooper and someone else.

The only thing he's good for is them nice sausage rolls he sell in his shop opposite carra rood

I don't get why people give Moro so much stick, the bloke is a good footballer. Yes he might not run around like a headless chicken for 90 minutes like Holt, which admittedly does make him seam lazy. But when a chance arises he is always in the best position to score, e.g in and around the box. Now think about this one, now or the next time you see Holt play.

Any argument that if not injured and given a good run of games he wouldn't stat scoring regularly? Form comes with games. Finally I think selling would be a mistake and some Norwich supporters wouldn't realise this until its to late.

I'll drive him there myself

Morison has been alright for Norwich. Still, it's clear he's not much in favour so think this would be good business all round.

Why do Villa need ANOTHER striker?
They have Benteke, Bent, Weimann, Agbonlahor & Bowery.

This would make me smile



07 Jan 2013 07:57:06
Dani Pacheco's agent is trying to secure him a move to Norwich City, but the only stumbling block in the situation seems to be Liverpool's valuation of the player which Norwich feel is too much, although they still remain interested in securing the playing services of the player.

Just had a look at him on Youtube and he shines in a league far removed from premiership where defensive errors abound. Can't see this happening.

^ He can only shine in that league, what more can he do? He also shined in the Championship and in my opinion did well against Young Boys in Europe.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton is working very hard to try and secure the signing of Austria Wien striker Philipp Hosiner before the end of the week, so he is available for the match against Newcastle,
Although the deal looks as if it should be concluded very soon at an estimated fee of £3.5m with add ons which could bring it up to as much as £5.5m.

As soon as Barnsley have installed a new manager, it is expected that Craig Dawson will complete a move from WBA. Joining the Tykes on loan until the end of the current season.

With Sean O'Driscoll pulling out of the race, it is expected that the Reds board will turn to their second choice, apparently Notts County's Keith Curle, and will offer the job to him early this week.

Terry Butcher will be installed within days

Terry butcher now the favorite

Wrong trying for terry butcher

Please let this be true, curle needs to go

07 Jan 2013 15:38:41

Darren bent having medical today, villa won't play him due to contract clause of extra payment to his former club.
He wants first team football
Reading FC have offered him a loan deal with a permanent move if we stay up.
Watch this space. 100%.

Villa would never allow a relegation rival to take their marquee signing. Reading aim for bargain basement players as demonstrated with Thomas Rogic a kid from Australian A league no one has ever heard of.
Carrico is only 24 and has played twice all year in portugal not exactly the "proven premier league" players McDermott has been banging on about for the last 2 months.

Its not true! 100%

I can't see this happening, Bent is quality, too good for Reading. Although I would be more than happy to be proved wrong!

Reading fan

...No it's not.

It's false it's false

This is definitely not true. Sadly we don't have anywhere near that level of ambition.

I firmly believe Villa would offload him if the right offer came in but that will not be from Reading.

Depends on AZs ambition



07 Jan 2013 06:35:47
this morning Sean O'Driscoll turns down Barnsley job

Looks like he's on is way back to doncaster then now deanos gone to wolves

Free agents Bradley Diallo and Jerome Kisonga are wanted by Aldershot, Southend, Wycombe, Oxford and Swindon respectively.



07 Jan 2013 05:14:53
Sean O'Driscoll returning to Doncaster as manager within 48 hours.

No chance. More chance of Kyle Bennett playing well and that won't be happening anytime soon

Not true Doncaster have said they are interested in 6 managers and one of them is not him



07 Jan 2013 04:34:48
Foley to Ipswich town 1mil FACT

Who is foley



07 Jan 2013 04:30:13
Waghorn impressing the tractor boys for 2mil



07 Jan 2013 03:20:26
Ipswich to sign Sam baldock for 1.5 mil

Yeah that's not going to happen. And that's coming from a Town fan who admires Baldock.



07 Jan 2013 03:16:05
Ipswich signing Bradley Orr on a permanent deal

Probably will happen if he continues to play as well as he has been over the past few games.



07 Jan 2013 03:12:37
Dexter Blackstock off to either Ipswich or Leeds



07 Jan 2013 02:30:28
Andre Gray interesting Ipswich and Gillingham



07 Jan 2013 02:14:09
Michael Morrison of Charlton in talks with Ipswich town for a fee of 350k

07 Jan 2013 10:39:14

Lies! he wouldnt go to ipswich for one, and secondly he is worth about 500k

I doubt he'll come to Ipswich. Although he does like the club and is a local boy. Would be a great signing but not going to happen.

More like 1m if stephens is worth 2m then Morrison is atleast 1m



07 Jan 2013 02:10:40
Simeon Jackson interesting ipswich along with Karl Henry and Ronald Zubar of wolves.

Please please please take henry and zubar mick, x2 of the worst most negative crappy footballers I have ever witnessed FACT!

Henry just signed a four year deal, so it will cost the tractor boys a fair bit to land him.



07 Jan 2013 02:01:09
Bradford City are going to make a ambitious bid to sign Matthew Derbyshire who was recently on loan at Oldham

He won't move to League 2, good joke that, next pls

His wage at the moment is anything from 11K to 17K and thats from Forest fans, you have no chance. lol

If his salary is so high, how did spendthrift Oldham manage to afford him?



07 Jan 2013 01:59:44
Middlesbrough are also interested in heleingborgs 19 year old LB jere uronen as cover to George friend which suggests that Andrew Halliday will join rangers

Any boro news that is true coz none ov what ppl av put on has even been true

Any boro ins and out ppl.

That left back is just what we need check him out

Callum mcmanaman could be on his way to the boro



07 Jan 2013 01:54:43
Huddersfield are considering letting their fringe players go such as Tom Clarke, Anton Robinson, Alan Lee if it's a good deal for the club. This will free up room in wages for a signing

That's stating the obvious, they have been trying to do this all season but no takers as Lee Clark put most of them on huge pay packets and long contracts.

Just by letting them go is a good deal for the club.

Alan Lee is one of the most loyal players at this club he's a fans favourite too

I can think of several players that i would do my best to get rid of right now and i can see a few fringe playes asking to leave to get regular first team football. people like Novak and Arfield



07 Jan 2013 01:53:27
Possible deals west brom could look to make happen this month...
Jordan Lukaku(Romelu Lukaku's brother)
Keita(former barca midfielder)
Ibrahim(young man city midfielder for the future)
Danny Graham(unlikely cause of price tag though)

Graham Dorrans
Chris Wood(already gone to Leicester)
maybe Jerome Thomas


This would be great can't see JT going though



07 Jan 2013 01:52:57
g westley is wanted as next manager of barnsley they asked if they can spk to westley

07 Jan 2013 02:47:26
Yeh because they would turn to a manager who is struggling in the division below wouldnt they.

07 Jan 2013 07:38:38
As a Preston fan this is too good to be true.

Please please please take the cockney tosser, if you can stand mindless, garbage every week westley is your man you can even have most his current squad for nothing, i will personally drive them

07 Jan 2013 09:05:39
it as come from inside one of the clubs and that preston will line up s, od as new pne manager

Graham, if you need a lift to Barnsley mate I'M YOUR MAN!!

Good riddance.

If westley gets the job the gates should be locked for good



07 Jan 2013 01:51:08
Middlesbrough are In for the signing of the 6, 3 SK Brann striker Kim Ojo for around 1.4 million

Hopefully...a cheap striker that can do the job

Be good if this happened, but it won't, we've already got 6 strikers or so anyway, plus mowbray isn't wanting anyone and has faith in squad
