with colchester having publicly stated their budget will be dropping for next season, they will be shopping at near neighbours braintree (having had a highly successful first season in the conference). it is thought that left back aswad thomas is top of the list having already stated he wants full time football.

also on the wanted list are england c midfielder jai reason, and top scorer sean marks who is seen as a low cost replacement for player of the year kayode odejayi.(9)(5)

My mate (won't disclose his name for obvious reasons) plays for Southampton u21's and he is good friends with Alex Oxlade chamberlain. I was speaking to him the otherday about saints transfers and he was speaking to AOC on Thursday last week (3 may) and he told my mate that Aaron Ramsey was asking him about the Southampton set up and what it was like down there, the area, the players, manager etc. AOC told my mate he thought ramsey might be coming in on loan to saints for the first part of next season. This is only AOC opinion but given ramsey's recent poor form and saints' reputation producing and nurturing youngsters plus the way they play it doesn't seem like a totally ridiculous statement.(9)(36) 

^^ lolSaints fan. Think we are going to get absolutely slated for the above rumour!

Not to add wood to the fire but the lad who wrote it seems pretty strong on his 'story' and doesn't seem to be making to much of a wind-up attempt and has tried to justify the rumour. Wouldn't have believed it but I might just put this one in the maybe pile.

Unlikely but outside chance, because it wouldn't be a terrible move for Ramsey since Arsenal will be looking to bring back in Wilshere next season and probably won't be room for both young players to start (need so experience in midfield). Whether Wenger and Ramsey will see it that way is a totally different story!

And please this is a rumours page so don't people come on here and start slating it saying Saints fans are being arrogant, If you asked Saints fans if they thought this would happen 100 out of 100 would say it wouldn't, but would be hopeful that it might.Who cares if we get slated as Saints fans,
it is, as has been said a rumours site,most of what's on here is just fun,why don't we just have a laugh,enjoy being Saints fans,a lot are quite envious of us,look forward to the signings that will in time come,and wait impatiently for the start of our Premiership season.
I love Saints.Yes, another Saints fan, but one who can't see such a possibility as arrogant.
Next season Saints will be playing Arsenal and we will need a team capable of beating them so I doubt if the club will bring in no hopers. Saints will only bring in Players that enhance the squad and we already have some good, young midfielders who will do well next season, so Ramseys quality is what we will be looking for.
HOWEVER, it has been Saints recent policy not to bring in loan players unless they have lack of cover through injury. The reasons for this are clear and I don't see that changing in the Premiership, and the club has the structure and funds to find and sign players so I would be surprised if incoming loans are being considered at the moment.


06 May 2012 22:58:25

Cos that's probably what it'll take to get him!Mandaric ready to splash cash so if thats how much it'll cost he'll pay it3.5 million? He's not that good

06 May 2012 22:02:58
Not a rumour, but I'd love to see Phil Bardsley in a Southampton shirt next year.(5)(18)What a stupid thing to write, if you're going to put who you'd like in a Southampton shirt why not put Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? It's supposed to be rumours not wish-lists and if Phil Bardsley is top of your wish-list I'm very worried for your mental state.



06 May 2012 22:00:48

nile ranger
Michail Antonio
paul green
stephen bywater
Anthony Gerrard
jamie vardy
jon bostock loan(2)(31)Bywater already a wed player, why would they sign a player deemed not good enough for league 1 in the championship(bostock)

anyone who thinks albert adomah is going for any less than 6 mil needs to stop smoking crack!!!!!(4)(24)I think it's probably you that needs to stop smoking crack?! £6m for Adomah? Worth £2m tops, take what you get offered. You made that mistake with MaynardSurprised people want him he's average at bestHe's at brisol city he's not worth 6m, Leicester offered 7m for Maynard and he went for 2m!You seriously got to calm down on that crack 6 mil? hahaKeyboards are a real sod aren't go to type a K and you hit the M key instead.....he's a "one good game, ten average game"playerRidiculous price - can't see a queue forming even at £2m


06 May 2012 21:37:31
Ipswich to make an audacious attempt to snap up free agent Dimitar Berbatov in the summer on a Bosman. Dimitar has recently stated that he is "bored of Premier League football and fancies a new challenge" maybe Ipswich is his new home and the Championship is the new challenge he so desperately craves. Talks with the Tractor Boy's CEO Simon Clegg will commence come the end of the season. Sir Alex Ferguson has gone on record to wish Dimitar the "best of luck in his future endeavors" and thanks him for his "commitment and passion to Man Utd but as he is surplus to requirements he simply won't be needed any more." {Ed025's Note - hmmm.....really??(3)(33)HA,HA,HA, Thanks for that best joke in a long while.Isn't a Bosman for players under 24?After all, £100,000 week is nothing to Ipswich.Why do you bother100k pw? Has he had a pay cut?I've no idea how much Berbatov is on, just a tongue in cheek comment with regards to the financial impossibilites of this rumour bearing any sort of credit.


06 May 2012 21:35:21
Heard from a very reliable source, within
the club, that Paolo Di Canio does want
to stay at swindon and the decision will
be made regarding his transfer budget
for next season, both him and wray have
stated that they want brilliant things
next year, so i think keeping Paolo is no

Swindon Put in a 160,000 Bid for Tourquays
O'kane, and yesterday had scouts watching
cheltenhams Marlon Pack,(15)(2)Yes it is believable but di canio said it all revolves around the board backing him in the same fashion as this season, that means any player he says he wants the board have to make a big effort to get them. What he is saying back him or there could be problems.


06 May 2012 21:25:48
Plymouth Manager Carl Fletcher is looking to bring in out of favour Steven MacLean from Yeovil Town after his loan with Cheltenham finishes(6)(4)Maybe not the best of moves after the stick he got from all of us in the crowd against cheltenham on saturdayOne of the worst signings the Pilgrims ever made,didn't ever give 100% to the team,so won't fit into the present set up,Carl Fletcher is no mug,can't ever see this happening


06 May 2012 21:25:47
Pep Guardiola seen on Cromer pier eating white crab sandwichs with Delia Smith.

Marko Marin - Bremen (already done)
Nick Powell - Crewe
Willian - Shaktar Donetsk
A central defender(13)(17)Cisse from newcastleGoing to take a bit more than them players to get Chelsea challenging for the leage again. They need a great central midfielder to replace the ageing lampard, someone like Martinez of atletico Madrid or m'vila of Rennes


06 May 2012 21:13:45
Former Yeovil Town, Bristol City and Morcambe striker Phil Jevons linked with newly relagated Macclesfield Town as the club aims to return to league 2 next season(3)(6)Hes training with wrexham

It's official reading have agreed a fee of 6million for huddersfields Jordan Rhodes and alex smithies!!i st you not the deal has been done!(7)(34)Not sure about Rhodes anymore, would have been a good signing in the champs, but too untested for me at prem. we already have 2 good young keepers so i doubt we'll be looking at another. can get better for cheaper abroad.

cue Huddersfield fans saying they're too good for us and they're worth 6m eachDeluded reading fan playing football manager againAs a Hudds fan I would give you Smithies for free, he's been next to useless this season!I doubt any deals will be sorted till the play offs are done.We don't need another keeper...

Joe mattock and a goalkeeper to sign for Brighton(13)(3)


06 May 2012 19:41:05
Leeds to sign Burnley Striker Martin Patterson for 1M(19)(29)If you can keep him fit then you'll have a good signing but bear in mind he';s been at Burnley for 4 years now and has only managed to make 100 appearances in that time.

His spirit is willing but the body may already be done- which isn't a good thing to say at the age of 24 or so!!


06 May 2012 19:38:13
Sunderland to sign Nick Powell - Crewe, Danny Rose -Tottenham, Steven Davis - Rangers and Michu - Rayo Vallecano.(15)(13)


06 May 2012 19:26:14
Danny Mayor is also out of contract at the end of June, so being under 24 would command a fee in the region of 25.000(4)(7)Danny Mayor is NOT out of contract this summerMayor and barton signed 3 year contract extensions last season on top of 2 year contracts which they already had so id say they both have 4 years left at north end


06 May 2012 19:24:12

06 May 2012 19:01:34
Chris Wilder can not believe the growing calls from Oxford fans for him to go. He apparently commented that they should remember it was not long ago that they were non league and that it would perhaps serve them right if he moved on and they returned there!!

Maybe he should remember that the fans could well dictate whether he stays in a job and should not alienate those that have not yet joined the chorus of "Wilder Out"(2)(5)He could be on his way to Burton anyway


06 May 2012 18:38:30

Watford's Mark Yeates will return to former club Colchester United after Sean Dyche deemed him surplus to requirements.(16)(4)I hope so hes been awful for us!His dead ball delivery and goals have been really good but he is too slow and his delivery in open play is not good enough for the championship - shame but good luck to him if he does move on


06 May 2012 18:32:41
strong rumour at the MOL that Darren
(son of Fergie) is in line to become wolves new boss(10)(13)What has fergie jnr done
at peterbrough
not alotThat would be a step backwards for wolvesPlease god no.Did I just seriously read that? Quote: 'What has fergie jnr done at peterbrough not alot'. Peterborough have one of the lowest finances in the League and nobody gave us a hope of staying up after we sold CMS in the summer and lost Bennett in January. We stayed up by 10 points, that in itself is a great acheivment. All of this was done with only one player above the age of 27 and overall very little Championship experinece compared to the rest of the league. At PNE he was not given a chance by the fans as they expected Peterborough style miracles from him. If Fergie does leave it is fully deserved and I will be absoultely gutted to see him go. 3 promotions in 4 years speaks for itself, he dragged us out of the s and made us a very decent competitive side. Such a disrespectful comment you should be embarrased.Could get a few on loan from united like fabio and pogba


06 May 2012 18:30:08
a host of premiership clubs are after leicester highly rated winger ben marshall the 21 year old scored 3 times for leicester since arriving from stoke in january for 1 million including that 35 yarder against chelsea in the fa cup and is thought to be a future england star. sunderland, qpr, liverpool, reading, southampton, blackburn, aston villa, everton, norwich are all interested but they may all be put off by the 10 million price tag that leicester want for him. it is thought clubs a willing to offer player plus cash deals and nothing more has been said yet despite norhich apparently offering 3.5 million plus steve morrison and elliot bennet.(4)(15)Seems overratedFuture England star? 10 million? Besides the 4 goals (2 of which took major deflections) he has done very little, the occasional decent cross, but at 21 years old he's gone beyond having the promise of a Premiership star. Oh and I'm a Leicester fan before anyone starts.


06 May 2012 18:28:02
Rumour comjng from blue square south Havant & waterlooville have 3 players being chased Oliver Palmer by Charlton and a host of other league clubs. Scott jones by Bournemouth and Afc Wimbledon and perry Ryan by brentford and afc Wimbledon and Luton.(11)(1)


06 May 2012 18:20:53
ipswitch want leicester striker/winger paul gallagher for 750,000

personally i would take this offer because i believe we can get better.(13)(10)750,000 ur having a laugh


06 May 2012 18:15:14
Nile Ranger (£2million) and Adebayo Akinfenwa (£1 million) have emerged as shock targets for Leicester City.(8)(31)Akinfenwa for a million? really?Heard Bayo is off off to a championship side at Sixfields on SaturdayStupid Leicester. Anyone else?Ed why don't you close down this site...pointless having it as Leicester are buying everyone ...Nile ranger the man who couldnt cut in the championship with barnsley


06 May 2012 18:00:01
Cardiff City in:
Dj Campbell

Wildig(6)(28)Probably need more defendersWow, so all the players you want in and all the players you dont want out; what a happy coincedence. You're going to lose Whittingham, face it. Becchio is Warnock's favourite Leeds player. He is also the fan's favourite player. Any bid will be met with such derision that the chief negotiator's underwear will implode.Add whittingham to the out listBecchio ha ha ha dream on!!


06 May 2012 17:54:44
Newcastle is considering to make a bid to Basel for Swiss international Fabian Frei. Schalke 04 has also enquired about the winger, who impressed in the UCL against the likes of Man U or Benfica.(11)(10)


06 May 2012 17:06:53
Has the take over been agreed? Just asking as I really hope so?
If it has where is this rumour coming from ?
Love Reading fc just hope the premier league fit n proper people say yes to TSI. Taking over.
I've watched Reading almost merged with Oxford .
Seen crowds of 30,000 plus watch reading I just have a sneaky feeling were gonna be big so fast due to our catchment area
So let's have some realistic rumours on signings and take overs let me know your thought?.(4)(10)Apparently adam le fondre is going to leicester for 2 millionIf the premier league dont let TSI takeover it is to the benefit of us, dont hope they say yes hope they do their job right. at the end of the day if TSI dont take over because of this it is a good thing as the money would not be thereWhat fit & proper person test....the one they've got now is a joke!!Reading? Big? Tinpot club mate. Try getting some history.History? We were formed in 1871! We are one of the oldest teams going. We are making history right now. We have the championship points record. To win the title this season we took something like 47 points from 53.

There are big teams about who have won many titles and trophies like Leeds and Forest but what's the difference between them and Reading? They'll be playing championship football next seasonwe'll be playing Premiership football.

Basically what I'm saying is quit living in the past.

06 May 2012 16:10:12
Nigel clough has had a Meeting with
Miles Addison to see whether hes
Prepared to work hard and be a solid
defender rather than a slow midfielder.
This is because the absense of Shaun
Barker has Made Nigel need extra
cover with only shackell and buxton
with experience.He feels its a cheaper
option to keep Addison than let him
go for free.

Nigel has only had a meeting this
dosent mean addison is staying(4)(5)


06 May 2012 16:00:45
Watford and Sheffield Wednesday are interested in Preston's Danny Mayor. Watford look in pole position after Watford scouts have watched him for the past few months and Sean Dyche went to see him play on Saturday. Preston are expecting a bid in the coming week.(13)(1)Unless u got a million or 2 no one will get him and before anyone says pne have no money belive me hemmings will push the boat out to get pne back to the championshipIt's a shame that the boats' got a big hole in it called Graham Westley that will see that investment sink. Most of the "talent" at PNE is up for sale as Graham looks for Bosmans, free's and loans from footballing giants like Shrewsbury & Stevenage. Around £200k should buy Mayor. It's Coutts & Hume that most clubs will be after, will be sorry to see them go!Are u for real 200k get a grip more like 1,5 mill


06 May 2012 16:00:30
man utd are to enquire about the availability of swanseas scott sinclair and southamptons morgan schneiderlin.(5)(34)After todays performance...can't see any team being interested in SinclairThey have missed the boat with Schneiderlin. Why would he want to move on now Saints are in the Premiership when he stayed loyal over recent years of relegation and then fighting to get there?
He will stay at Saints and will be a real star over the next couple of years.Because they're Manchester United? fair enough being loyal and all that but they won the top division more than any other team. when a team like that come knocking at your door you dont say no. anyway its b/s so you have no need to worryIve actually heard this too, man utd meant to bid 5-6 million plus michael owen or berbatov? maybe..The last deal would be a good deal but le tiss always stayed loyal so can be doneAnd heskey


06 May 2012 15:42:27
Sources within anfield say on liverpools radar for a summer spree to strengthen their squad are:
- elm
- Adam Johnson
- Defoe
- Owen
- Xabi alonso
- Isla

But I order to find these moves, some dead weight has to be sold, these include:
- spearing
- aurelio
- jones
- kuyt
- cole
- maxi(15)(17)Why would these players come to a mid table premier league team, who have been on the decline for years and with daglish in charge are just sinking further and further away from competing at the top of the premier leagueWhy are lot of rumours
saying owen going here
and there
he s injury prone and
past it

Again with the crap. If you are so sure go and stick a few hundred quid on it. PDC is not going any where YET, yes he will move on...but he will have another season with Swindon first.I agree he's done a good job but yes overboard with their spending wage's and loan signings don't reflect their income could struggle financially this season and PDC will want outWhere did you hear that rubbish.....He's not leaving Swindon, he's already been in a private meeting with intrim chairman Jeremy Wray - planning assault and planned targets for next season........i just love these people who slagged Paolo off at the begining of the season.....Oh now....he's amazing lets link him to every mangers job that available..........Pipe down and watch Swindon next season..................I hope you are right. He has been great for you this season and I would say against the odds too. Lots of doubters at the start but they have been proven wrong. I did not write the first paragraph on this but, I have to say there are rumours circulating and though only rumours, I have also heard some concerns he has (Have a good friend who is a die hard Swindon fan who keeps me updated). He has to for the team I follow (Forest Green)This is from Di Canio, he wants to meet with the board to discuss the boards ambition for next season, his contract revolves around championship in 3 years, he has 2 years to get them there, if the boards ambition has not changed then he will continue his role with Swindon. Yes he will be linked to other jobs but west ham if they fail to get to the prem but west brom no chance. he is more likely to stay at swindon, can see him throwing one if they struggle in league 1 but the aim is to go straight up and the board have the same ambition and know it cant be done without money of which they have plenty.

leicester to sign stuart beavon a fee of 500,000 has been agreed for the striker(3)(21)I figured it out. Leicester think if they buy very pro player tht is cages between 18 and 35, they will win the league due to the rst having to play kids or oap's

Stupid Leicester fansDont believe the hype pal I'm sure players will come and go at Leicester the same as most other clubs, this is a rumours site not a fact sight take it with a pinch of salt my friend.CCFC are also rumoured to be in the running to sign Stuart Beavon once the transfer embargo has been liftedWho said its Leicester fans putting the rubbish on here?? Most of us Leicester fans think that the rumours about us on here are a load of rubbish and laughible!


06 May 2012 12:14:54
Preston will announce the signings of shrewsbury duo shane cansdell sheriff and nicky wroe this week.(6)(10)Why would they go from a team who has just won promotion, plays good football and is on the up to one with a manager who plays bodybuilding neandthrathal football?No chance of Preston getting Sherriff.


06 May 2012 12:23:00
From a good source.... Tommy spurr could move to leeds or Barnsley for a fee around 200k... And out of contract centre back/ centre mid rumoured to be interesting charlton, Coventry and Middlesbrough.(5)(5)


06 May 2012 12:15:35
leicester city manager nigel pearson is set to improve his squad with much needed quality. his top targets are hulls cameron stewart and james chester a fee of around 4 million is expected to be accepted for the pair of them, he also wants robert koren to add experience to his midfield he would cost around 1 million.
he has also inquired about pompeys david norris and joel ward, norris is wanted to add pace and strength to the midfield and fee for the pair is said to be around 1.8 million.
as leicester lack width they are looking at bringing in robbie brady from man utd he would welcome the move as he liked working with nigel pearson he will cost leicester 2 million also wolves winger matt jarvis is a 5 million target but despite leicester being able to offer him the most money he may opt to stay in the prem. also rangers winger sone aluko is a possible target.
with beckford most likely going they are close to completing a deal for fleetwoods jamie vardy with cardiff and leicester both having bids of 750,000 accepted, he is most likely to stay in england. also paul taylor is a target from peterbough. and a target man is needed after howards release so marco futacs is being lined up for a 500,000 mave and qpr pair jay bothroyd and rob hulse and being lined up for a 2.3 million joint move.
with chris weale leaving and adam smith going on loan leicester need another keeper to compete with kasper and conrad loagan, joe lewis is being lined up to come in as he is a free agaent also southamptons kelvin davies may come in for 500,000.(2)(28)Not all gonna happen I can assure you.
Solid news from within the club is a maximum of 6-7 players coming in and at least one of those will be a prospect to be developed, (not in 1st team plans for 2012-13).
Vardy HAS been sounded out and Hull HAVE been approached re 2 of their players, (believe them to be Koren & Chester, may be wrong)!
One name that is definately being mentioned within the club is Alan Judge of Notts County. There is a need of a 'target man' up front ... A loan deal is likely to fill this role!Absolute fiction!
As a Saints fan, I can say there is no way that Davies will leave to join a Championship side.
You really have no idea what you are on about-if all you are going to do is produce a wish list, why not start with Messi?What a complete load of tosh, are you of this earth?As another Saints fan, Davis turned down a big money move to West Ham when they were in the Prem to stay with us as a league one side. He's our longest serving player, and he has said he wants another crack at the top flight with Saints. Also, why would he uproot his family from the New Forest to Leicester at this stage in his career? Don't know who you think you're kiddingLooooool leicester fans are funny...jarvis hmmmm maybe you want silva and tevez from city also the money and the quality team havent you.....LOL a team that's staying in championship after buying an entire new squad? Pretty sure your board will have learnt their lesson...also Bringing in Keeper of the year for 500,000? When he can play in prem, and good enough to play in prem? Dream landTry using the money to buy the club some class first before you start trying to buy players. Despite your money AND voting against it FFP rules will apply!!Im a leicester fan an ur talking out you arse, we are only signing a few players an were not getting jarvis no way


06 May 2012 12:10:18
West Brom want Steve Bruce or Gordan Strachan to be their new manager.

Both will be offered a two-year-deal when the season finally ends. They will also be promised £20million to spend in the transfer market to bolster their squad.(6)(27)Both are terrible managers who are championship standard at best

We are good at scouting players and Mcdermott has said he will only look at a player if they can fit in the locker room.Wolves bigger than saints don't be an person think before you write prat


06 May 2012 11:39:41
Tal Ben-Haim and Dekel Keinan have both agrreed moves to israeli side Maccabi Haifa(16)(6)Think the T b Haim move would have to be subject to him receiving some sort of pay off from Pompey, probably most of the £500k they received for Pearce, as TBH earns £36k per week basic at Pompey and has a year left on his contract!

Dougie Freedman to be offered the West Brom job, with an unnamed director of football. Jeremy Pearce is trying to cut costs at the club and has seen the good job Freedman has done at Crystal Palace with very little money. A director of football will be appointed to give experienced advice to Freedman. Certain players will be sold by the club, and very little will be spent, a big rebuilding job will be on Dougie Freedman's hands. The club are rumoured to be only offering £2m for transfers regardless of player sales.(8)(20)I wonder which team you support?Arrgh bitter dingle barnsley away next year?I would accually laugh if he took over now hmmm enjoy a relegation scrap nex season while we dominate the championship againHow have West Brom got no money - still have a Championship squad, and haven't spent much?

Burnley will sing Sam Vokes from Wolves for knock down price of 400,000(11)(15)Rubbish....back at the club and has a sell on clause of 25% so isnt going anywhere will be an ok squad player next year..., but 400k for him to sing like you said yeahThe price is being knocked down if they sing well enough, is it?400,000?! you joking? at brighton he didnt do a lot so i'd say 250,000 would be fair


06 May 2012 10:36:37
The signing of Anthony Wordsworth will be confirmed on the 1st of July, he has signed a pre-contract so no-one else can get him

Jason Puncheon is coming to The Valley

There are lots of new stadiums being built of the greenwich peninsula and charlton could be moving into a new 35000-40000k stadium is they consolidate themselves in the championship

Jay Rod is also coming to charlton, everton aent interested as Jelevic is on form(3)(24)He seemed pretty happy to see saints go up on the Football League Show? Jay Rod?I am afraid there are bigger and better clubs than Charlton that will be in for him not just Everton. Burnley turned down 5.5m so plus 1m or so for Puncheon I reckon that your looking at 7-8m . Cant see it myselfMy god how deluded! Jay Rod will move to the Premier League! Not to a newly promoted team from League 1Anthony Wordsworth is under contract for another year & under the age of 24 so is not eligable to sign a pre-contract/Pucheon could come along; we're DEFINITELY not moving into a new stadium with a capacity of 27,111, and the potential to expand; Rodriguez? Heard that as a rumour before but no. Too good for us. Wordsworth is indeed a possibility however.


06 May 2012 10:24:47
wilfried zaha is a possible replacement for victor moses if he moves to liverpool in the summer. Moses benefited from the first team football he got at wigan after signing from crystal palace and this is seen as a factor in the deal. The money from the moses transfer would cover the 5-8m that would be needed to secure zaha's signature, also callum macmanaman would move to crystal palace on loan(12)(10)Load of old tosh as Zaha is also a target for Liverpool Bolton and VillaHow is he worth 8 mill podolski should of cost arsenal 30 thenSame situation as victor moses 2 years ago. supposedly wanted by big clubs but ended up at wigan and is now turning quality displaysZaha is not worth 8 mil. This guy is seriously overrated


06 May 2012 09:36:26
David Norris a transfer target for Hull,Nottingham Forest and Leicester, with the midfielder most likely to move to the team offering the most cash (Leicester)(15)(11)Leicester have made an offer of 750,00 for him.£750k would def buy him, would expect half of that amount would be accepted by Pompey given their current dilemma

Bournemouth fan here. Saw Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche at our game with Preston today. Rumours are that Pugh and McDermott were the ones being watched!(17)(3)He won't have been too impressed then will he. other rumours that demin's money had persuaded howe to come back and take the job


06 May 2012 00:13:10
Antonio will be joining Reading in there premiership campaign. Has really impressed on loan.(10)(11)I would be very surprised if we didn't sell him. I just don't think he will cut it in the prem.I would be dissapointed if we sold him, but he has a young family and he deserves to get settled in Sheffield or wherever. its unfortunate hes never managed to show the quality for us that all the teams hes been on loan at have been talking about. all in all i think he has the potential to be a top championship player if not a decent prem player, so all the best too himHe was great at Saints but he would be a big punt for any Premiership Team.

He must be out of contract. If I was him I would be looking to stick with Wednesday. Think he would do well in the Championship as he has pace and powerAntonio was not considered ready for the championship this season. Yes hes impressed in L1 but so did McKail-Smith and a host of others who didnt do it at Champ level. Too much of a gamble for Reading to take him to the Prem. Better to let him go to Sheff Weds (his stated preference) with a sell on clause.

05 May 2012 22:20:16
QPR boss Mark Hughes could be only given £5 million in the summer if they stay up in the Premier League.
The first deal is set to be a loan deal though. Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is thought to be in talks over a possible season long loan deal in London next season and is keen on the gaurenteed first team action.
Another defender close to join the Loftus Road club is full back Nicky Shorey. The West Brom defender is out of contract in the summer and will sign as a free agent, with wages only coming up to £10,000 a week.
Roma striker Stefano Okaka is subject of a £3 million bid from Rangers. The 22 year old is currently on loan at Parma and has impressed Hughes this season, having a goalscoring ratio of one goal every four appearances. The former Modena attacker is thought to be in talks over a three year deal.
Another in coming defender is thought to be Leicester full back Paul Konchesky. Hughes has always been a fan of the left sided defender and is keen on capturing him for a fee of £2 million on a two year deal. This transfer is expected to happen if they also go down.
Hughes is also wanting to bring a few more of his own staff in.
The first is thought to be Hull City goalkeeping coach Gary Walsh. Hughes is wanting a whole set of new staff next season and Walsh could be added to help their last line of defence.
An potential assistant in talks with Hughes is former Birmingham and Sunderland boss Steve Bruce. Bruce has confirmed he would like more of a coaching role and could help Hughes push on next season on a two year deal.
Hughes is also keen on bringing in former Manchester United and Bradford midfielder Lee Sharpe into the club within a coaching role but talks are put in hold until pre season.
Finally, Manchester United 'Head of Youth' Brian McClair is also in talks with Hughes about a role at Loftus Road, possibly a lucrative deal within the academy setup, that could cost ther London side around £3 million a year to secure him.(3)(27)Yep all championship players for a soon to be championship teamDidn't he sell konchesky as soon as hhe arrived at fulhamAnd there is no chance Smalling will go to a side who leave loan players on the bench


05 May 2012 22:18:15
Argentinian Pablo Mouche is currently linked with a move to Aston Villa, following the rumours that state that N'Zogbia is moving aways from The Villans. Mouche is a winger who plays for Boca Juniors and holds French passport.(3)(5)This is rubbish, as if you done your research, he is a striker, and holds an Italian passport.


05 May 2012 22:01:23
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is expected to spend big in the summer to bring some of his own players in.
Before any deals are done, full back Phil Bardsley will be offered a new four year deal.
The former Aston Villa boss is thought to be wanting to put in a £12 million bid for England international Gareth Barry and could be accepted if City manage to find a replacement.
Another surprise signing could be Nottingham Forest attacker Marlon Harewood. Harewood worked with O'Neill at Aston Villa and could sign a one month rolling contract to try and get fit to prove himself as he is set to be announced as a free agent.
He is also expected to make a bid for Wigan midfielder Shaun Maloney. The Scottish winger has impressed O'Neill in recent weeks and could make a £2 million buid to secure the Celtic player.
O'Neill is keen on adding a goalkeeper to his squad and could make an offer for Bursaspor and England stopper Scott Carson. Carson has declared his desire to leave Turkey after being unsettled and could move back to England in a £5 million deal.
The former Aston Villa boss is also expected to link up with another former teammate in Olof Mellberg. The experienced defender is a free agent in the summer and could sign a two year deal at The Stadium of Light from Olympiakos.
Another defender to join could be his fellow countryman in Fulham defender Aaron Hughes. It is thought he could be tempted away from Craven Cottage in a deal worth £2 million.
Scottish midfielder Steven Davis, who has been transfer listed by Rangers, is already in talks with Sunderland could sign a three year deal in the next week as he seeks another move to England.
Finally, another Manchester City midfielder James Milner could sign on a season long loan deal with a view to a permanent £10 million switch next summer.
O'Neill is also wanting to bring in a number of his own staff into the club.
O'Neill is keen on bringing close friend John Robertson as his new assistant of who he has worked with at Aston Villa, Wycombe and Celtic. The 59 year old is also expected to be chief scout at The Stadium of Light.(13)(23)Wow thats 30million quids worth of players not bad since oniels been told to sell to reduce his wage bill and he has to sell b4 he can buyIf your a saints fan you don't know how saints work obviously Nigel will not bring in anymore then 3-5 players there will be no overhaul. It's called in Nigel's terms a team evolution and the reason saints have been so good is because of the team bond which has been key an overhaul would totally ruin everything that's been carefully built in the camp

Saint clarkyYeah 12m for barry stop talking rubbish, why would sunderland put in so many bids for average at best players, the rumours are we after Agbonlahor, Carroll possibly but doubtful, A Johnson, J collins, milner, a 20 goal a season striker, a left backNo chance.
Milner & Barry are on HUGE wages.
Sunderland fans can only DREAM!
This is like saying Messi is joining Hereford United. Jeez!More like 12 quid for barry,way overated


05 May 2012 21:41:06
If Roberto Di Matteo is confirmed as the new Chelsea boss, he is expected to sign one player before the season starts as he doesn't want to overhaul his squad that much. Before any deals coming in happens, it is thought he wants to offer Israel captain Yossi Benayoun a new three year deal at the club after his loan spell at Arsenal.
The first bit of business he is thought of wanting to do is singing old boy Alex back from PSG. The Brazil international left in January but is rumoured to be keen on linking back up with Di Matteo.
He is also keen on bringing some of his own staff in.
Di Matteo is keen on bringing former Chelsea favourite Jody Morris to the club as a coach. The St Johnstone player is set to retire in the summer and is wantint to coach. Morris will sign a two year deal along with Di Matteo.
The former West Brom manager is also expected to bring in Chelsea legend and close friend Gianfranco Zola in as his new assistant. There is expected to be an Italian feel at Stamford Bridge this season and may win the fans over with the coaching staff he is set to bring in.(4)(15)


05 May 2012 21:40:14
Reading have told Michail Antonio he can leave this summer. He is contracted until 2014 and valued at £2m.

Sheff Wed's and Notts Forest both fancy the winger.(7)(21)Forest might well fancy him, but they don't have £2, let alone £2m!Way way overpriced£2m,he's not worth a tenth of that,know this is a rumour site but come on mate.500k to 1 mill


05 May 2012 21:34:30
Jay spearing of Liverpool is going on loan to Watford for the season as liverpool look to bring in other midfielders(8)(19)Why would we want Spearing? He is so ugly he'll scare half of our fans into not returning.I dout it seeing as he played in the fa cup final yesterday. i used to think that most of our fans were realistic but this is beyond a joke


05 May 2012 21:17:43
Ed Upson will sign a new 2 Year Contract at Yeovil on Tuesday after accepting the offer from the club.(10)(4)Signing for Exeter as he sees them as a bigger club with more potential to come straight back to league oneHe ISN'T dropping down to exeter!!

05 May 2012 21:15:31
George Boyd and Joe Lewis are set to sign for Brighton in the coming week. £3 million + Harley is the rumoured fee. Aaron McClean is also being pursued from Hull but quite alot of work to be done before any signature though. Marriappa from Watford is also wanted but prem clubs likely to win race for signature.(7)(17)Joe lewis is a free agentIn fairness you can tell a brighton fan didn't right this because marriappa is a centre half which is something we dont need! we have plenty of them!


05 May 2012 21:01:02

05 May 2012 20:49:42
Southampton will make a bid to bring Wolves winger Matt Jarvis back to the premier league in the summer for around £4 million(21)(21)Aston villa are rumoured to be considering bidding about £6m rising to £8m on appearances.Funny , Wolves quoted Norwich eight million for Jarvis.Why would he go to Southampton for half that price ?Jarvis can do better than Southampton, who will struggle this coming season.I dont believe Saints will struggle at all. It was reported in the paper Saints offered £4m, but that doesnt mean its true. Clubs always start with a low amount to negotiate. I heard Villa were interested tooInfact its the other way around clubs start higher with the view to lowering for negotiations actually..., and jarvis im affraid looks like he will be here next year :(Jarvis will leave Wolves

he will abandon the sinking ship to stay in the premier leagueDont think so mate, Saints are not going to bid a high amount and then try to negotiate it down, they start low then wait for Wolves to counter offer and go from there. You have no clue


05 May 2012 20:48:22
Southampton are ready to make another bid for Celtic striker Gary Hooper(22)(15)Never gonna happen....hooper wants champions league football and enjoys playing in front of 60,000 every home match!!No chance. If Hooper was available there'd be a cue of mid table prem teams in for him. Sunderland and Fulham are definately keeping tabs on him.


05 May 2012 20:47:37
Southampton boss Nigel Adkins is set to tie up around 14 deals before pre season as he looks to overhaul his Championship promoting squad to compete in the Premier League with a possible view to Europe League football and FA Cup success.
The former Scunthorpe boss is keen on signing around four new defenders and does have money to spend.
The first to sign is Stuttgart defender Khalid Boulahrouz. The 30 year old can play anywhere along the back four and the former RKC Waalwijk and Hamburg stopper will sign until the end of the season on loan.
Another defender set to sign on loan will be Jan Lecjaks from Swiss club Young Boys. The 21 year old was close to signing in the summer from Viktoria Plzen but chose to move to Switzerland but hasn't played yet. The deal will include a deal that could take the Czech under 21 international to St Marys for around £2.5 million.
Doncaster defender Tommy Spurr, who is regarded highly at The Keepmoat, is subject of a £2 million bid from Adkins and could sign a three year deal once the weekend passes.
The final defender is thought to be Birmingham star Curtis Davies. The former West Brom player has been superb for City this year and if they don't manage promotion to the top flight, he could see a two year deal at the South Coast materialise before the start of next season.
A midfielder set to join is Argentina international Maxi Rodriguez. The Liverpool playmaker has declared his desire to leave Anfield for first team football and could sign on loan for the season at St Marys.
Another player to join from Liverpool is midfielder Jonjo Shelvey. The 20 year old is wanted by a number of clubs in the Premier League but is expected to choose Southampton as he feels they will compete next season.
Three wingers are set to link up with the club and all of them could be done before this time next week.
Arsenal youngster Henri Lansbury, who can play onf the wing but also fills in midfielde is subject of a £2.5 million bid from Adkins and have already discussed a three year deal.
Blackpool full back Matt Hill is set to be released from Bloomfield Road and will join Southampton on a one year deal. The former Bristol City, Preston and Barnsley left sided player is expected to sign as a winger to compete but can also fill in at full back.
Finally, Chelsea winger Yossi Benayoun, who can also play in an attacking midfielder position will sign a two year deal for as little as £1.5 million as the Israel captain seeks first team football away from Stamford Bridge and has been told by his loan club Arsenal, that they will not be signing him.
Adkins is also keen on bringing up to five strikers in and coould tie them up within three weeks.
Another loan deal in PSV attacker Ola Toivonen is expected to happen with a view to a £5 million deal in January if the transfer is successful.
ADO Den Haag have confirmed they've recieved a bid from the Premier League club for their young striker Charlton Vicento. The 21 year old is expected to cost around £3.7 million and has scored four goals since signing his professional deal with the Dutch club in 2009.
The third attacker is thought to be Sunderland forward Frazier Campbell. The England international eanred his first cap for his national side in February but has been told by the Black Cats he can leave if someone match their asking price of £7 million.
A surprise deal could be Cardiff target man Jon Parkin. The former Preston and York forward has been told he can leave Wales and is thought to be set to sign a one year deal next week.
Finally, another Sunderland forward in Connor Wickham will sign on loan until the end of the season.(11)(44)We won't be signing prem has beans on that list...Players that are young,with potential,can play the Southampton way,future value and are hungry for success will be signed so pick those off that list and you might have a caseLike top comment says, Adkins has a habit of not signing old players. nothing near 30 looking at previous signings.
Also we do not need or want a whole club overhaul and he has said as much. He looks to make 3 or 4 good signings, and try and bring the youth through into the squadBloody hell what have you been taking - thats one he'll of a made up list.What even with them all signed theyre not much better than what we have already got plus adkins thinks a squad overhaul would be a terrible ideaIf all of this happens it will completely ruin saints togetherness and they will end up like QPR - going down on the first atteptSaints fan here that is absolute rubbish!! adkins has said he wants to sign the right players for the club not has beens!!!You're free to have parkinAre Southampton going to try and be the new Portsmouth spend all prem money if relegated not able to sell then have prem wages in champ think they should just try to stay up then add strength slowly over next few years myself"Overhaul" is not something Nigel Adkins has any intention of doing. I have no idea why you wasted your time writing all of this. Quite a few of the team are premier league standard already or could prove to be so with some hard work, so I've no idea how 14 signings could fit in."from the official website"

Nigel Targets Steady Progression
Posted on: Thu 03 May 2012

Nigel Adkins says he will be looking for additions to his squad, but there won't be an overhaul at St Mary's.

you were saying?You make out to be a Saints supporter but know nothing about the club or what it is trying to achieve.
If, as I suspect, you are not a real supporter and sound like someone from along the coast who is used to fantasy football, at least have the sense to check what Adkins has already said about his intentions.
There are likely to be 4/5 quality signings (max) with around the same number of fringe players leaving.
The club are after consolodation over the next couple of years with further development of their youth set up.No way will saints end up
like pompey
cortese and adkins will
see to that
nobody will end up like
pompeyWhy don't you just be honest and sign your real name I.M.A. Skate!

Pompey will be brought very soon, 2 very interested potential buyer's, just hope it goes through sooner rarther then later so we dont have to sell all our best players. PUP PPU(7)(25)I see the Skates haven't lost thir humour...Why would anyone buy you?I will give you some reasons why they won't...Huge debts,don't own the ground,no training facilities,no academy,small fan base and several other clubs with much better portential,excellent facilities and in higher leagues all for sale....That's why TB said it was so I important to stay up,you didn't,good bye...............That is not true at all, no body is anywhere near buying pompey! Only chance you have is with fans trust and even that will fail. You owe way too much.You dont know what u r talking about focus on your team getting relegated next year.... NORRISTwo potential owners.....that will be chinny and the Trust pmslFound another couple of "fictional" Arabs, have we?
I can understand grasping at straws in your situation but a sharp dose of reality is what you need.
People buy clubs with assets and real potential, you have neither.
Look along to Brighton-a new stadium that cost over £100m-and that would just be the first part of the investment required for Pompey. Sorry, it's not going to happen.They are so gulible...That's why there in this Sh&t in the first place actually believing they have something to offer any investors...Not sure whether it's ignorance or simply blind rivalry demonstrated above. Quyite simply, Pompey will not be liquidated as it is worth more alive. Reason is that a further large Prem parachute payment is due next season and also, if liquidated all the players would become 'frees'. Chanrai has already indicated he would not let them be liquidated and this is why. Secondly, when a CVA is agreed, the debts will be wiped out. Norml practice in many businesses and other football clubs, so they will not have 'Huge Debts'. Also, the club does own it's ground. So, feel free to continue to be as vindictive as you like but do try to give a realistic view of the situation. Incidentally, have southampton never been in financial difficulty..........?Three weeks until Pompey are bought but the potential owners will not throw cash at the club but instead rely on Appleton to deal in the free and loan markets.The only chance of them being bought is with either Chanari who is only interested in getting his money back so there will be no investment or the fans trust who cant raise enough money to do it. The parachute payment for next season will be used up as soon as its released so thats a dead issue. You had a CVA agreed from last time but didnt pay a penny of it..Now you have to try and get a new CVA which will make sure all your debts from you old CVA get even less so you cheat your way out of it again! Oh and Im not a Saints fan btwRegardless of any new investors/CVA's Chanrai input, you will not be able to keep your is their wages that have cost the club.

Burnley are very close to signing three players this weekend as boss Eddie Howe seeks his full first team squad for pre season in July.
The first signing will be Everton youngster Ross Barkley. The 18 year old has been told by boss David Moyes he can join someone up until January and is keen on not travelling far. He will sign for the Turf Moor club until the weekend before the FA Cup third round tie at the start of the year.
Secondly, Brazilian left sided player Fabio will also sign a loan deal but this will be until the end of the season. Howe is keen on getting a really strong squad together with a mixture of youth and experience and the Manchester United youngster will sign until the end of the season.
The last deal will be 20 year old Ghana international Afriyie Acquah. Another loan deal will be arriving at Turf Moor in the Palermo midfielder and will sign until the end of the season with the wages paid by the Italian side.
One deal that will not be happening will be Alex Bruce. The former Ipswich and Leeds defender will turn down a one year deal with Burnley in order to sign a two year deal at League 2 club Cheltenham as he feels he will play a lot more football at Town.(2)(27)Yeah m8

Im a Burnley fan too

I saw Ronaldinho gettin out of a white range rover yesterday, nd he dropped a paper that sed that he was gunna sign for Burnley for his cousin, whos a fan

Nd aquah has allready signed !!

Ross Barkley aint tho, were after Oxlade ;)The Ross Barkley one must be on loan because he looks decent and has been called 'one for the future'.Isn't every youngster one for the future


05 May 2012 20:08:45
Reading have enquired after Johan Burg Gudmundson from AZ Alkmaar.

They have also made a £1m bid for Lillestrom's Björn Bergmann Sigurdarson.(25)(7)We've defo made a bid for the Icelander, so I'll give you the benefit for the doubt on this one, as the first rumour is a proper random one. Who is he?Seems we're just being linked to every young Icelandic player in the world..Probably some fella off of football manager


05 May 2012 20:00:16
2 Confirmed transfers Norwich have succesfully completed are the signings of Norwegian and Hannover Striker Mohammed Abdellaoue for an estimated fee of £ 4 million and the signing of Leeds defender Aidan White on a free transfer(11)(36)What's your source?......Aidy White isn't a free transfer he will cost any club around £1.5m in compensationHow is it a free tranfer you numb nut. he's only 19 or 20, so we'll see your compo in the post and he's nowhere near the finished article and when he is, you will be playing championship again , and we will be flying high in the prem. mot4lifeNo we haven'tWell, you haven't. White's contract doesnt expire until the end of the season. So yoiu haven't 'successfully completed' anything, and with proper teams like Newcastle interested, I doubt you even will.
wallyWot a load of bull,white still under contract at leeds so if he joined the leeds rejects at norwich a fee would have to be paidLeeds in the Prem, as deluded as your claim you are the "Champions of Europe"-living in the past and off a defeat, laughable.Leeds are and always will be bigger than little old Nawich that lives off the scraps from Leeds. I mean wots all that about, you'll have a team full soon. When's the last time you had a youth team player coming through. Very sad little club, made famous off the back of a cake making queen...ha haLeeds are and always will be bigger than little old Nawich that lives off the scraps from Leeds.

Newcastle utd INS -
Seydou Doumbia
Cleverly (season loan with buy option)
Mceachran(season loan with buy option)
Scott Dann
Roderick Miranda
Fabian Delph(5)(55)Doumbia is settled at CSKA Moscow; his wages in Russia are already high and I don't see the reason he would like to be third-choice striker at Newcastle.Even if Cleverley or Mceachran do go out on loan I doubt they'll be given an option to buy them as they are seen as bright stars of the future at there clubs.Jadson moved to sao paulo in january so doubt he would moveDo Newcastle really need all of them players! I think maybe 2 or 3 signings will be made this summer by Pardew. They have been linked with a lot of French players as well.

Reading will sign: Marriapa, Sigurdarsson, N'Doye, Clyne and Sigurdsson. They will be given £20m to spend by TSI.

TSI (Thames Sports Investments), the company taking over Reading FC is headed by Anton Zingarevich (worth £200m). O
There are several other investors including AZ's father Boris Zingarevich (worth £3.4bn).

This makes Reading the 9th Richest club in the world in terms of ownership.(17)(37)So much wrong with this.

First of all I'm a Reading fan, but one a little more sensible than this burk.

1) No-one knows AZ's wealth.

2) Madejski is worth £300m, so why would we then spend more than we would under him?

3) His father Boris is also involved and is a billionaire three times over. BUT still don't expect silly money to be spent! The club are investing heavily off field with taking the academy to Cat 1 status and the stadium expansion to 38,000 from next summer (if we stay up).

4) No there aren't several investors. There are two. Father and Son.

Sigurdsson has out grown us. Move on. Grow up!

Mariappa is supposed to be a done deal, as is Butterfield, but again - until you see them presented as Reading players, they aren't and other clubs are interested.Can never have enough Sigs! but seriously, after reading the article on him in the mail i now know we have absolutely no chance of getting gylfi backI'm a Reading fan..but such statements like being the 9th richest club in the world is hugely embarrassing...because the reality is we aren't ....Anton is the club owner ..not his father ...hopefully that now makes us 90th richest now!....yes remember the Tommy Smith saga ....This site ain't the Financial Times eitherFor reading to sign up N'Doye would cost alot of money.. Fc.Copenhagen declined a £9.5 mill. bid on him half a year ago.. so you would have to let go of half of your money :)We are the 9th richest in the world. Anton isn't the owner, TSI is, Anton just heads the company. There WILL be money available, not silly money, but money still. My source is Chief Executive at RFC so yes, I do know Anton's wealth. If it was just the majority shareholder that made the club rich then QPR would be no where near the top ten. We WILL spend as we want to stay up and the infrastructure will be improved if that happens.

Peterborough United To Signed Luke Ayling From Yeovil. £150k(3)(9)He's out of contract at Yeovil so would only require a compensation agreement with the 2 clubs as he is under 24. But he has expressed and intrest in staying with the club for another 2 years before moving on with his career.

Newcastle united are set for

Danny Guthrie

This is all i know so far but theres
bound to be more INs and Outs(3)(17)Ba & Tiotte are leaving,& expect a big for Cisse,all could go with wages trebled,something Newcastle cant do {Ed025's Note - bitter sunderland fan i think..My geordie mates have already said rumours are ba and tiote are off, expect big bids for krul, cisse and cabaye, everyone entilted to their opinions ed so your a poor ed for saying bitter sunderland fan {Ed001's Note - I have not heard one Geordie say anything about them going, only that, if they do go, they trust Carr to find good replacements.}

Derby County to make Ross Perry and
Fegor Ogude their first signings.Nigel
is to only sign a MAXIUM of 7 players.
Unless more players are sold.

Krystian Pearce and Michael Jacobs
will become the 3rd and 4th signings
with Jacobs fee only compensation.

Daniel Powell from Mk dons is nigels
Target for the much needed pace on
the right wing and that would be the
5th signing

Lastly Johnny Russell will become the
Last addition to nigels team as hes
repeatly said they need assurance of
Strikers and the board are willing to
step outside their current policy to
make this deal happen this is the only
fee considered to be high with it
reportedly being 950k + 3 players

Paul Dixon will Join the rams after nigel
said they need a young left back as
roberts will be retiring at the next
season and Paul dixon told the papers
hes leaving Dundee united for a
Championship club

You can click the unbelievable button
if you want but this is just to alert
Derby county fans to who will be with
them next season

The players above have all been
scouted and contact has been made.(6)(31)We are cutting our wage bill further than it already is to about £6m so there will be 2/3 signings max. A fact which Clough himself has a faceless rumour board poster or the manager himself??You say he's allowed to sign seven players as if its not very many. As the above poster said, it will be three signings, a left back, probably Dixon, but not Jack Robinson as has been said by other posters, as he won't be available on a permanent due to him having a future at Liverpool. The other two signings will be a winger (either Jacobs or Pugh) and an unnamed striker.Thats the only paid transfers
Paul dixon Left back
Michael Jacobs Midfielder
Johnny russell striker

The others are only if a player is sold which im told by insiders that blackpool(if they failed promotion)and bristol city
to sign Chris maguire for 500kWe are trying to reduce the wage we will not be selling 1 (maguire) and bringing in 4.

barnsley to sign alan judge and get antonio on loan from reading as part of the butterfield deal with reading signing butterfield for 750,000 instead of going to a tribunal(14)(11)As Butterfield is out of contract there is no "deal"

Cheers tho.Antonio more likely to stay at WednesdayButterfield is under 23 and has been offered a much better contract by Barnsley so compensation will be paid. Either through a tribunal or a straight fee newcastles rumoured to be offering 2m to beat off interest from other clubsTypical deluded Barnsley fan!Still will have to pay something he is only 21Alan Judge plans to get promotion with Notts County next season.

barnsley to sign mcdonald from sheff u for 300k(8)(18)As McDonald is out of contract in the summer, I guess he will be going for free and certainly not to Barnsley.Laughs out loud. Surprisingly hes already been in secret talks with city rivals Sheffield Wed. This is regardless of the playoffs as hes a fan of Dave Jones who sees McDonald as the ideal partner for the destroyer Semedo

Blackburn are set to lose up to five players on free transfers after Steve Kean told the board he would like to overhaul the squad, whether they go down or stay up.
Vince Grella will sign a one year deal with Russian side Zenit St Petersburg and is keen on linking up with some old teammates as he seeks European football.
Spanish defender Michel Salgado will be released and will be told to find a new club.
French midfielder Herald Goulon has been told to find another club and has already opened talks with former club Le Mans over a potentially signing a three year deal.
German club Hoffernheim are very close to securing Junior Hoilett on a lucrative four year deal and the 21 year old is keen on a move to Germany after already experiencing European football three years ago.
Finally, fringe striker Nick Blackman is set to be released as a free agent.(11)(7)

Burnley to sign:
Alex Bruce (Leeds) free agent
Lewis McGugan (Nottingham Forest) 3m
Cameron Stewart (Hull) 4m
Albert Adomah (Bristol City) 1.5m(4)(27)We havent got that much money to spend, even if we sold Jay

so go back to cloud cuckoo land.I thought burnley had no money to spend... And they had to sell before they could buy..Please take mcgugan for 3mil !3m for mcgugan? Done deal.

Agent 279JEEZ! GIVE UR HEAD A WOBBLE!!!FELLOW CLARETS STOP POSTING UTTER GARBAGE PLEASE!Let's all laugh at Burnley, must have won euro lottery£3m for McGugan? Not a done deal.

Agent 280Leeds fan here - Alex Bruce is one of the most irritating players I've ever seen play for Leeds.

Always looked quite solid and assured (though prone to errors) and didn't have more success in a Leeds shirt due to his constant injuries. Also sounds like he might be a tad tricky to manage - reportedly fell out with Grayson big time, and was well known to leave the ground and drive home if not selected, rather than stick around to watch.

Nonetheless - I don't think we ever saw the best of him and it just didn't seem to work out, so good luck to him in the future.


05 May 2012 14:57:01
Isle McLeod is being highly linked with a move to Pompey. He will join if barnet get relegated ! Varney has been linked with Leeds while greg halford to join Sheffield utd. Scott allan to come on season long loan and Kitson,Benjani and Kanu to be discarded which Ashley Harris will be offered a new 2 year deal along with Jed Wallace!(15)(10)LOLz. Barnet stayed up.

Maybe you should concentrate on selling people and paying everyone you owe first, eh?Has mcleod really joined because its mot on offical siteReally dont think you will be offering anyone a new contract! That is if you are still a functioning club and not liquidated

Why are Kanu, Benjani, Mokoena and Ben Haim still at Portsmouth? surely the administrators would realise that getting rid of them would help save money(20)(2)If they release them they would have to settle their contracts, doubt they have the cash to do so!If you can change the rules, and allow Pompey to cancel their contracts I'm sure they would do it in a flash.

But unlike Scotland, English clubs have to either transfer the players or mutually agree to terminate the contracts (which will cost).Called a contract all for players/agents club still trading. Couldn,t agree more with youCalled a contract all for players/agents club still trading. Couldn,t agree more with youWhy would the players leave??

The money runs out in a few weeks.He wouldn't have played for Barnet today if he'd already signed a contract elsewhere. Also the Bosman rule is different in England than in Europe. Barnet would have to have accepted a bid and given permission to talk to the player, and they haven't.

Only in Europe can players in the final months of their contract talk to other clubs! {Ed007's Note - Players can sign a pre-contract for a club in a different FA six months before their contract expires, to sign for a club within the same FA it can only be done one month before contract expiry.}What are the rules on signing players when in administration?

They only flew back yesterday so why are they training at all. Brian mac doesn't argue. Ian Harte is fine.
In fact Ian is class. Can't think why you would think he'd join Leeds utd especially after what they did to Reading fc
Forget that one ! Wishful thinking(13)(14)Firstly, don't be so naive. EVERYONE argues at some point. Brian isn't a god. So stop acting like he is. Secondly, the post didn't actually give you a time frame, the bust up could have easily happened in the end of season fitness tests and fitness MOT's before leaving for team holiday. Use your head, you are no more in the know than the other guy, and being a fan doesn't automatically mean you know Brian personally.What did Leeds do to Reading? A kid got sent off because he got over-excited and Danny Pugh (who has played for Stoke remember) slid in a bit hard. Its the Championship. Grow up.
I do agree with you though, Harte won't return to Leeds, for the same reason that we didnt sign Robinson; age. Oh, and 'never go back,' and all that.
wallyThere hasn't been any bust up."What did Leeds do to Reading"

ask jem karacanJem Karacan broke his ankle after a brilliant and fair challenge where he fell awkwardly in the aftermath, one of the only fair challenges michael brown has done all season. Tell him not to try and do the amateur dramatics and he wouldn't be injured.Why would Harte care about an incident that didn't involve him? Remember Harte is Gary Kelly's (Leeds legend) nephew and he got into English football because Gary got him a contract with Leeds while he was there. They Both love Leeds and didn't want to leave (couldn't afford Harte's wages and Kelly only retired because Wise was a TW-T and he didn't get on with big Ken)Scissor tackles are fair? I also like how Pugh's horror leg breaker tackle was described as "Going in a bit hard". No wonder Leeds had one of the worst disciplinary records in the league last season.

Swansea will NOT be getting Sigurdsson. They are now out of the running. If no big club comes in for him he will stay at Hoffenheim or move to Reading.

Swansea had a £4m bid laughed at by the manager. They cannot afford any more and they knew the bid would be rejected, but wanted to try and make an effort to please the fans.
They may look to sign Clyne for a tribunal fee however.(18)(13)Swansea is better than readingHaha this is funny, swansea had a 5 million pound rejected and they have said that was a "warm up bid" they know they will have to up the money and hoffenheim have said 7 million and its a done deal! also gylfi has said he WANTS to stay at swansea, dont believe me? click in sky sports news in google then get back to me!Sigurdsson is also better than Swansea. Why would they sell him for £7m when they bought him for £7m? And he's now worth more than that. They will deal at £8.5m, no less, which Swansea can't afford.Gylfi was not going to say " I want to go somewhere else" is he, especially when there is games left. Also he has said "he would love to go back to Reading". Why would you do a warm up bid when you knew the price tag and Hoffenheim said they will not accept any think less. But he will go to a top 6 club or a European giant. Also the price tag is 10 million.

Isle McLeod to sign for Portsmouth with the money raised from the sale of Jason Pearce which is £500,000(6)(23)Think there might be a few creditors interested in the Pearce fee before new players, wake up and face reality!I don't think so you small minded fools. That money is to keep you running as a football club. Currently you only have enough money to survive until June. That money will help see you into July. 15 more players must go before you can realistically start spending; and when you do, you'll need a new owner and they don't seem to be lining up do they?The money raised from the sale of Pearce will be used to pay the wages of those left behined - for 1 more week!So, you have raised half a million but don't intend paying off any of your creditors!!
Same old Pompey-rip off anyone you can and live in never never land.
You lot are just a disgrace to the football world and the sooner you are put into liquidation, the better.So i see another fan saying how pompey should go out of bussiness you wouldnt be saying that if it was your clubJust to point out that Portsmouth don't have a training ground at the moment because their contract with Southampton University has run out. I'd imagine they would want to use the £500'000 to put towards resecuring that training ground to prevent having to train at a school..Fans are simply saying the above because you only go out of business if you are running a business.
You lot think you are some sort of charity and whilst you are playing at the job you are defrauding many local businesses-who are trying to run a business-out of their money.
Just try and understand it does require money to run a football club and you have very little left, and yet you still seem to think players will flock to your door without any job security.
Don't blame other fans for these views, you should be blaming the idiots who got you into this mess.If my club had been in administration twice in 3 years, 3 times in 10 years, and broken a CVA because they continued to sign players on 40k wages, yes I would want my club to be scrapped. It's disgusting!!

Start a fresh and work your way back up and earn the respect your fans deserve; but that club stinks!!You football fans are sooo thick...we have got him on a free....we wont start paying him until july are spending money? NO idiotsI think the person tag is closer to home mate.
Your administrator says you will be out of money by July-so who pays his wages?

Millwall are hoping to sign Colchester goalkeeper Ben Williams,who has been watched a number of times by Millwall scouts.They also want Ipswich defender Aaron Creswell,but maybe out priced by Charlton and Peterborough who are also interested.(3)(13)Why not keep the one you have, I thought he was pretty good.

So Ian Harte had a bust up on the training ground with the management? when was this, as the whole team including management is currently in spain enjoying a holiday?(7)(11)Well, actually they got back yesterdayWhen they got back is irrelevant, firstly they wouldn't be in training now and secondly ian harte is the last person to have a bust up. what an utter load of made up tosh.There has been no bust up. The team celebrated the trophy presentation then flew straight to Spain for a knees up. They got back yesterday and Ian has a new contract on the table.

ed any blackpool rumours {Ed025's Note - if you dont win the play-offs then wolves will move for holloway..(8)(9)Radio Lancs carried an interview with Holloway just before the play off game on Friday. Holloway mentioned the interview that Brian McDermott had with Wolves after they sacked McCarthy and he went back to Reading and then signed a long term contract after realising what a good job he already had. When asked if the same was happening with himself and if he wanted a long term contract with Blackpool; Holloway said that it was currently under discussion and was in the hands of Karl (the theif) Oyston.

Southampton's Japanese striker Tadanari Lee is a loan target for Crystal Palace and Derby as they fear he will not get many first team opportunities(7)(28)Except he will. NonsenseThats rubbish hes our 3rd choice striker!He is not third choice. He was playing regularly until he got injured then sharp got 8 in 8. Lee had to have an foot op so will be back to get his place backHe is 3rd choice! Lambert and Sharp are the top 2. Im sorry but based on the form of the partnership of those 2 they are the top 2.Lee and lambert were up front together before lee got injured and he was good enough to stop billy sharp getting his spot , he is our number 3 or even 2 strikerWe will be bringing in another top striker.tadanari is still a very important squad player and great asset to bring onLee was not signed to be put out on loan. The Premiership demands a certain amount of rotation, and injuries and suspensions will add to it.
Why loan out a striker and when you recall him because he is needed you find he is injured or exhausted?He's a great player who we need on the bench at least


05 May 2012 05:12:06
Steve Cotterill believes he can persuade on-loan Birmingham forward Erik Huseklepp to join him at Nottingham Forest if Birmingham fail to reach the Premiership. He will be Forest's number 1 target this summer.(12)(15)No because Nottingham Forest will go down next season^^ derby supporter lol^^

all you ipswich fans are crazy thinking joel ward will sign for you hell sign for a top six side(2)(9)Doubt it. He's good, but not that good. You lot down there just love him because he's local.Quite honestly we couldnt give a fig one way or the other, if he signs for someone else so what, we only want players that want to come to Ipswich and play for the club, so we will see by August who comes and who doesentPompey cannot afford to pick where a player goes, bid comes in they go.Is that why he plays for portsmouth ?


05 May 2012 02:13:36
David Clarkson is wanted by league one side Walsall, Clarkson who has recently been released by Bristol city is currently injured but will be offered a trial /contract by Walsall in the summer

Michu (Vallecano) - £4.9million
Matt Jarvis (Wolves) - £4million
Matt Phillips (Blackpool) - £2million

Yakubu (Blackburn) - Unknown fee

Obviously we aren't going to sign all of them. Well, probably not even one of them but these are RUMOURS for a RUMOUR site.(12)(23)Just to add to that I've heard we're going in for Junior Hoillett from Blackburn if they get relegated. A proper right winger which is something I feel we've lacked last season^^ lolOh dear god! Hoillett will not sign for us! He will be for a top 6 side at least!Not Saints fan but 2 mill for Matty Phillips, dont thinks so try 4 mill.

Also I notice that Jay Rod isnt on this list and this has been the biggest rumour going. oh well that makes me a happy claretClyne wont be 5 mil, hes out of contract, tribunal will be about 2 mil, doubt hed go to soton either, man u are interested

05 May 2012 00:09:22
been hearing PSG want sessegnon and are willing to do a player trade sessegnon for Kevin gameiro. A striker sunderland have been interested in before. Never seen him play before so dont know if hes any good but I hope it's not true I'd rather keep sess he's top class(3)(11)Gamerio is a quality striker, but sunderland would want cash aswell, maybe 10-15m plus gamerioUtter tosh. Listen to yourselves. Gamerio is rated by his club at 20mil and is linked with Arsenal and Newcastle. There is no way he would want to play for Sunderland... Ever. FACT and because the word fact is in capitals it is true. FACT

Bristol city will have Michael Owen on season long loan this is a dead cert I know just trust me! Can't wait coyr! {Ed025's Note - hmmm(3)(43)On loan from who ?

Ian Harte could make a shock return to former club Leeds after he rejected a new contract at Reading after a training ground bust up with Brian Mcdermott and assistant Nigel Gibbs. The news has alerted Neil Warnock who is looking for a new left back after their former first choice Paul Robinson was recently released because of a number of poor performances(3)(44)This has false press written all over it. Whats your source?!The season has finished and they are no longer on the training ground. i know some leeds fans are desperate to see some good players coming in but making up stupid rumours will not help. Go back to the drawing board.I really can't see this at all. Ian Harte has worked hard over the past three years and has finally got a chance to show what he can do in the premiership.

Reading have supposedly offered him a new contract, and i'm sure Harte wouldn't waste such a good opportunity.

I'm a Leeds fan, and really hope to see him have a good go in the premiership.Nice try LOLeeds.

There has been no bust up. The team celebrated the trophy presentation then flew straight to Spain for a knees up. They got back yesterday and Ian has a new contract on the table.

SSN reporting Butterfield to Newcastle but Reading have already agreed a contract, now just a tribunal has to happen.Please take Jamie O'Hara off our hands, he's lazy and useless and if we can get back the £3.5m we paid for him I'd bite any teams hand off.

ale is worth no more than25/ 30 to any clubThats why no club will get him then if clubs are going to offer the pathetic 25-30 mill you reckon {Ed025's Note - very good player...but worth £30m? ..not on your nelly,,And Andy Carroll is worth how much {Ed025's Note - 10

04 May 2012 19:48:03
Ipswich to sign adam clayton(5)(24)Adam Clayton the bass player of U2 ?The reason clayton didnt sign new deal is beacuse he wants to play for a club with more money and a chance of the premier league. given their seasons and the signings and sales that these two clubs have made already this window, i would say that leeds appear to be willing to show more ambition this window than ipswich therefore u will not buy him


04 May 2012 19:17:12

04 May 2012 19:10:43
breaking news...what ever happens to rangers reguardless now means all there players contracts are void .this meaning every rangers player can leave on a free sparking a mass scramble from lower end premship clubs for there players ..rangers players agents are banging on the doors of the likes of stoke .wigan..wba .everton ect..(9)(4)Would that be the unibond premierCant see any premiership team wanting the tripe that you have at rangers, league 1 standard players playing in a league 2 standard league.Take a look at your top 2 division ,how many palyers have came from the spl ! Can't be that bad a standard !!TBH I reckon those players could cope in the lower echelons on the premier league.

04 May 2012 18:30:16
Newcastle are set to sign Barnsley midfielder Jacob Butterfield on a free transfer aswell as having already snapped up Romain Amalfitano from French 2nd division side Reims.

Erik Pieters, who is PSV and Holland's first choice left back could be signed for around £5m, Montpellier winger Younes Belhanda could be a big money signing for around £10m, but this is only if Newcastle manage to get into the Champions League.

If Danny Guthrie turns down the new contract offer and leaves on a free, then Bolton's Mark Davies could be an option for free, while Peter Lovenkrands, Steve Harper and Alan Smith will leave when their contracts expire.

Xisco, Nile Ranger and possibly Dan Gosling will be looked to be moved on aswell as goalkeeper Fraser Forster closing in on a move to Celtic.

FC Twente centre back Douglas could be signed on another free transfer, which looks a good policy from Newcastle, who only sign players under the age of 26 and who have a good resale value.

If Danny Simpson does leave, which is only a minor possibility at the moment, Mathieu Debuchy of Lille could be signed up as his replacement.

Busy summer on Tyneside to be expected, but only in a good way. No big players will leave unless they bid over the odds, which lets be honest - applies to all teams unless your Manchester City.(10)(17)What about Jan Vertonghen and Jerson CabralSorry but you want be getting jacob butterfield for free hes under 24 so expect to pay at least 1.5 million for him.Ba will go.Yeah, there will be a fee as he's under 24 but it will be classed as a free.

On Jan Vertonghen, he has indicated he wants a move to a London club, so expect him at either Arsenal or Tottenham and as for Jerson Cabral - I've heard nothing about him moving here.

Demba Ba is a possibility, but from what I've heard, he wants to sign a new deal as he has fallen in love with the city and European football will almost guarantee that he won't move, as well as his close friend Papiss Cisse.If montpellier make the champion's league as they're threatening to, they have no reason to sell belhanda - especially not for a paltry 10 mil.

Don't you just love it when a NEW team comes up from the championship, they are going to buy every one in sight.........Yes i'm talking about SOUTHAMPTON.

Yes they have done Fantastic to get back in the Premiership, but come on be REALISTIC please.

All i'm saying is DON'T run before you can walk, as everyone knows - the Premiership is a very hard league.(10)(14)Agreed, as proved by Reading, Blackpool, Norwich and now Swansea, you are better off keeping the majority of your promotion squad and add maybe 3 new signings to add some experience.

Any more changes than that and you lose the harmony and work ethic that got you there, and most importantly the team spirit.

Saints fans are getting far too carried away. They should expect maybe £7m spent on the side at most. Same for Reading, who are wisely looking at two or three very good free transfers, and then one or two costly signings.

Remember, it's not about how much they cost!

West Ham could have done with knowing that as well...If your so clued up you would know that saints do thier business behind closed doors, Plus saints would not sign anyone that don't fit in and they definitely wouldn't pay over the odds for a player, So it's not likely that they are going to sign everybody in their sightsSaints will make a maximum of 4 signings and 1 or 2 loans... The Main Stream media assume that they have suddenly come into money that they will be looking to waste. They have always been backed financially but have never got carried away... Watch out for Tadanari Lee (Chung).. he will be one to watch next year... COYRsSaints don't mutli buy that's why they've had back to back promotionsAgreed..Some of the posters on this site listing all these unrealistic players we are going to buy are clearly not real Saints fans...some Pompey no doubt.As will young would say "it feels like jealousy" .......... We are southampton we do what we want! {Ed025's Note - tut tut..Saints to sign 3-4 players max but will be linked with loads - not especially by Saints fans. Anyway i thought this was a rumours site so rumours about Saints targets are bound to happen - nobodys saying they will sign all of them - dont read it if you dont like it.I'm a Saints fan. I don't believe half the rumours posted about who Saints are buying are from fans. We'll bring in 4 quality players this window, as we did before this season. All we will do is create harder competition for places. Adkins is no mug

Ranieri to be next West Brom boss(15)(15)Just because he is the bookies favourite u state he will b the next manager he wont get the jobI bloody hope not!!^ How do you know?He will be Aston Villa manager next season in my opinion.

West Brom will go for either Steve Bruce or former assistant, Michael Appleton.Why all this talk about michael appleton. decent bloke yes but feel he is not the right candidate


04 May 2012 17:57:34
Burnley yesterday turned down a 5m bid from Fulham for Jay Rodriguez. They also turned down 5.5m in the summer from Southampton.

There is no way on this planet Celtic would get him for 3m. If you payed 10m, he's not furthering his career by going to play in a pub league ... no chance.(19)(6)Pub team you must be talking about burnley,when did you win the european cup,and play in front of 62,000 fans,wake up little boy.And how will he further his career at southampton or fulham he's a championship player at best with potential he would be a regular bench warmer at mid table epl team at bestCeLOLticWould rather play in a pub league with a big team winning medals and getting into europe every season than play for a bottom run off the mill championship team !!Accrington Stanley would make Europe in your league .. Celtic couldn't afford Rodriguez and if he went he would be the best player in that league buy some distance.Mate he's not referring to your club Celtic are a great club in SCOTLAND, on the world stage they don't have a chance. Scottish football is on the decline and has been for years, so why would jay rod move to a club who are possibly in one I the worst leagues in Europe dominated by two sides the rest are league two standard.Whats champions league>?Celtic Fans need to wake up to the fact that there is very little money in Scotland despite the 60k fans. The chances of either scotish teams doing anything in Europe is as likely a Newcastle winning the league

You can play European football for Bangor City, doesn't mean you are "furthering your career"He just scored 21 goals in the championship and is only 22 .. Connor Wickham went Sunderland for 8-10m. Jay has more to his game than Wickham. Quick, strong, good in the air, scores all kinds of goals ... more than good enough for them Prem.So £10m for a championship striker. Arsenal paid the same for a German International and regular goalscorer in the Bundesliga!! No wonder football in England is broken.The value of a player does not rest upon the league in which he plays but the value that he would bring to a new team. We are talking about a very talented young player here and I'm sure his value will be decided sooner rather than later.


04 May 2012 17:39:07
Spurs bid 22m for Thiago Alcantara(9)(29)Be careful - twitchy will take spurs to that planet where clubs live beyond thier means...if you know what I mean....Where did spurs get 22m from. If they had that money they would spend it on a striker aka adebayorWhy would we want adebayor yeah he's scored a few goals for us but defoe has played a lot less games and still got more goals for us, thiago never seen much of him but looks decent wouldn't pay 22mill though 12-15mill and for strikers i'd love to see if we could get rossi or falcaoThiago is on the way to inheriting Xavi's place in the Barca midfield via Fabregas. Barca already went through the noise of getting him fully signed last summer they're not going to toss it away for what amounts to walking around money for them.

Any Middlesbrough rumours?(4)(14)Yep, you're a small club with a stadium two times too big for you.

When your team struggled in the Premiership your fans always went missing. Terrible attendances.

Now you're in the Championship (where you belong), your fans have started turning out dressed as red seats. Sell-outs every week by the look of it.For the size of our town 140.000 population the crowds are good wat we get as a percentage ,take a look at other clubs

Reading fc have made offers for Lee Martin of Ipswich, Stephen crainey of Blackpool and Joel ward of portsmouth(6)(29)What is it with all this Reading offers crap, Martin will stay at Ipswich, Ward will go to Ipswich, and Crainie is not for sale at Blackpool, if the Pool win the playoffs he will be staying regardlessThis is news to reading fc let alone everyone else.Wont Ipswich ever sell a player then?Stephen crainey, he is a very slow defender, Leeds had him 2004-2006. He will get found against quick wingers

Newcastle and Southampton are set to go head to head for Burnley RB Kieran Trippier(16)(6)Not a chance he's already stated that he's lovin life at the turf and in football terms he couldn't have made a better decision in moving to burnley. Unless your willing to pay a stupid amount of money he's not going anywhere


04 May 2012 16:29:59
Lets be honest Thomasz Kuzcack will not be joining, we are getting more money but still no enough to pay his wages. Watford still no bids for Mariappa which is good. My great uncle kevin lye is a goalie coach at vicarage road and has seen Cwyka there and also Charlie Austin.(3)(19)Would you want Kuzcack ? ever seen his mistakes for Utd at the end of last season ? they almost cost MUFC the title.Kuszczak has been good for us...only one notable mistake and that was in his first game for us. Other than that he has kept us in a few games and made countless top draw saves. Would want him but we can't compete wages wise. Cwyka is possible too, but no way Austin is coming.Not true. Reading have made a bid for Mariappa. Not sure if accepted etc but the bid has been made.And LOL at you signing Charlie Austin.Wow your uncle must have done well to replace alec chamberlain as goalkeeper coach and no one to realise it. a load of rubbish. we dont have the money to sign austin if we dont have the money to sign kuzcackz(not sure on spelling) that is the simplicity. also you must be less than 10 to have a great uncle working as a coach still. stop posting utter bullLOL at you, never heard of two goalkeeper coaches, ever heard of football manager think you find there is a guy called Kevin Lye and btw watford have rejected the bid from reading because over the years we have had a bit of a rivalryThere is no rivalry between Reading and Watford, apart from banter about that "ghost goal". This would certainly not be a reason to stop a deal, so this is a Kevin Lie.Actually i have heard of both and kevin lye does not exist on football manager or on the watford fc website. maybe youre playing it and have created your supposed great uncle and signed austin and in the meantime got confused with real life....

Yakubu and Livermore(loan) to southampton source:(3)(31)Dreaming again lolSorry how is this dreaming exactly? Compared to some of the rubbish being spouted on here from various clubs this is possible compared to them.This is actually quoted from a football website, so the person who put it on here isnt dreaming as you so put it...Get back in your box, Saints. You're still a small club punching above your weight.

Yakubu? LOLYakubu LOL . I agree and i'm a saints fan. Saints wouldn't waste money investing in a hasbeen. Jake livermoore? really? a bit more imagination pleaseIT WAS ON A FOOTBALL WEBSITE! He was quoting it..No dreaming, no imaginating...just quoting!Yakubu... the same one that played for Leicester and Blackburn (16k max next season) Rovers? Probably jump at joining Saints.Yakubu is ex Pompey and would not go to Southampton.

Reading have reactivated their interest in Zambian Stoppila Sunzu. The centre back, who became African champion with his national side in February, was set to join The Royals some seasons ago, but the transfer failed because his work permit was denied by those days. However, he has earned many caps since then, so he currently has more chances to join Reading in the short term.(5)(15)Bit of a random one aint it? If this was close to happening before then we'd have heard about it... and we didn't.

Noooooo!!"Reading have reactivated their interest in Zambian Stoppila Sunzu"

SINCE WHEN, we have never had any interest in this guy whoever he is.Reading have shown interest in him. He was on trial with us and we wanted to sign him but we couldn't due to work permit issues as the OP has stated.He did have a trial at Reading some years ago.

04 May 2012 15:57:20
Southampton FC are interested in Jay Rodriguez from Burnley and Gary Hooper from Celtic and have offers on the table for both forwards.

They are also thinking about making an offer for Daniel Sturridge dependant on who Chelsea sign over the summer and whether he will be a start there or not.

Also thinking about bringing in John Guidetti from Citeh or Luc Castaignos from Inter on loan to add some depth up front - as both are under 21.

They are also looking at Zaha and Matt Phillips to add some pace on the wings - with Phillips it depends on what happens to Blackpool in the play-offs. Riyo Miyachi on loan from the Arsenal is another option being looked at.

Danny Guthrie and Henri Lansbury are also being looked at to add to the midfield options. Guthrie on a free and Lansbury on loan.

Matt Kilgallon and Scott Dann in central defence, Scott Sutter at right back and Erik Pieters at left back are also be considered.(11)(30)Saints fan here...Jay Rod maybe, Gary Hooper wants to stay at Celtic. Daniel Sturridge your having a laugh! Oh and how many strikers do you think we want?! Zaha will end up at a bigger club, the rest COULD be possible.As rumours go that was an amusing read but in reality just one of those potential signings would send Saints fans into raptures!Sounds like a whole new team ...good luck of little faith in the players that got you there ....wouldnt expect many of those quoted moving to a club where they would be getting plastic splinters every week something has to giveYou haven't got a clue.
If you really are a Saints supporter try to understand what the club are trying to achieve:
Firstly, any signings will be kept quiet until they happen-so your posting is just rubbish.
Secondly, the aim is maintain the style of play that has been successful, maintain the core of the team that has also been successful and build to a situation where 50% of the team is developed internally-why do you think £15m is being spent on training facilities if this was not the case?
All new players brought in will need to be able to not only fit in with a pass and move style of play but will also need to be able to mix into the very strong team ethic which exists and the Saints Way.
Whilst Saints have the resource available they will not pay over the odds and will bring in overseas players if home players appear too pricey.
Just think how Saints have managed to achieve what they have in such a short time and don't think they will be changing that policy whilst they get established in the Premiership.^ Very well said, mate. Think you should copy and post it repeatedly until the prats stop posting their bs.The saints way boot it up to ricky hope for the bestI don't think that this post is that far off. I could quite imagine that they are attempting on all these fronts. However I would imaging that they will end up with 3 maxUmm - if you read it I don't think they were suggesting that Saints would sign all those players - just that Saints are interested in those players. I would expect Saints to sign a striker, a winger a left back and a centre back at a mimimum. So it would be one of those 3 forwards - and it's on record they bid for Jay Rod and Hooper in January.Saints are investing in youth for the future - and the training ground - but that's not going to keep them in the Premier League next season the season after that. Cortese has made it quite clear Saints are here to stay so expect them to spend some money if he is serious about it!"The Saints way boot it up to Rickie hope for the best" - Clearly you havent watched Saints play at all this season..They played the best football in the Championship mateTalk about ideas above your station + how do you think you are going to pay their contracts when you are back in the 2 division ?Whatever way people think or say we play,who cares,it got us promotion back to the Premier League,lot of envy surfacing.Jealous fools.


04 May 2012 15:51:50
Winger Jakob Jantscher has attracted some Premier League clubs to sign him, such as Newcastle, West Brom and Swansea, as well as some Bundesliga sides, like Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Austrian international has been in a terrific form this season, scoring 13 goals in 25 league games for Red Bull Salzburg.(6)(3)He would be a great signing for any mid-table Premier League side. But 'Gladbach is more desperate to find a replacement for Marco Reus (to Dortmund), and Jantscher is seen as the ideal player to play for them.I wouldn't be so surprised... Do you remember West Brom signed Tchoyi from Salzburg 2 years ago?

You plum!The only time The Scum newspaper and fact can be used in a sentence is when something like "does not contain any" is in it.Wow, can't wait to see him linking up with Michael Owen & Beckham.

Laughable, we can't afford Dean Marney from Burnely so why post something like this.

jermaine beckford and jordan rohdes to celtic(6)(33)No just noWhy would they want beckfordMaybe to replace Hooper-sorry, I forgot, he's not going anywhere. He will just sit it out within a team head and shoulders above any competition north of the border and be satisfied not to stretch himself and see how much he could develope in a competitive league! If so, then he is not the sort of guy who anyone in the Premiership would want-we will see.Wake up and smell the coffee. More chance of signing Laurel and hardyWould love Rhodes but I seriously doubt that Celtic could afford him. You can keep Beckford though!


04 May 2012 14:48:43
Wolves fan here. Adam Hammill is set to leave Molineux and return to Barnsley for £250, approx half of what we paid for him.

I always though he should have been given more of a chance at Wolves because he showed signs of being able to cut it at Premier League level, his crossing was fantastic. Unluckily for him, he just didn't get a look-in with Jarvis, Kightley and O'Hara all ahead of him.

Good move for Barnsley both for the profit they've made and the player returning that they developed so well under Mark Robins.(17)(24)That,s about our limit is £250 Transfer Fee OR Wages?By the way, that is £250kWhat a load of bull. Hammill may well get a look in once a new manager is appointed. And even if he didn't, he won't go to Barnsley and Wolves will sell him at a profit.Barnsley fan- it would be nice to see that happen but honestly cant, with Jarvis more than likely leaving i think Hammil might start getting more games at wolvesHammill played his last game a while ago...and couldnt be happier hes been nothing but hassle since hes been here...., hasnt been in the team for a reason...and thats down to the stinking attitude he has and the unrest he has made inside the club not to mention the numerous fights his had ...biggest one being with wardy ..., nothing better than a championship squad player...., will soon be sold but id say at a profit ...!!


04 May 2012 14:45:31
Reading are already a self supportive club there will be money but a limited amount.
They will live within their means.
the deal has not been aproved yet .
but like brian mac said watch this space.

...dont really care EXCEPT............ NOT S Hunt!Pleased to hear it, so glad the deal went through.Living within their own means, Wow that's excellent news, now tell all the other Reading posters on here, as it seems by all accounts Reading will have a 65 man 1st team squad for next season, lol


04 May 2012 14:41:27
Scotsman Steven Fletcher is linked with a move to Aston Villa. However, the offer will run depending on who is selected as new Villa's manager for the next season.(9)(3)Hope its true,he will score for anyone that gives good service,very underated

Love the idea that we would buy a player from Man Utd ..... Fergie wouldnt sell any player to PNE after we potted his son....He also hates us after the trouble we caused with Danny WelbeckJames is out ov contract anywayWe will still have to pay a fee as he is still youngWestley has already said it's 14+ free's, loans and youth players for next season at PNE. As long as they are over 6 feet tall and like hoofing the ball!Have you even watched pne lately they dont play long ball so why dont people get there facts right before spouting nonsense we completely outpassed huddersfield and charlton recently.Fromwhat ive heard. mark roberts wont be joining preston and scott laird is being watched by championship teams.

Heard Oxford trying to off load constabe.
Should have maybe accepted Swindon offer.
Need money,however all this B/S about going into administration is just not true(3)(10)Dont want Constable and he will never play for us now and Paolo has stated he will move on to players who want to play for our club. Also glad we didnt sign him at the time i think Constable thinks he is a big fish at little Oxford whereas if he came to Swindon he would be a little fish as their are bigger and better players than him. Constable is a L2 player and we want better players than that now we are promoted.Swindon did not want him because he messed dicanio about and he said he will never sign him for any club.Who is your source that they want to unload Constable... I hear we are interested in him so may be something in this. Dont think he's had such a good season so his price will have dropped. Think Swindon offered silly money too but agree he is not Division 1 player


04 May 2012 14:14:05
strong Rumours in the westham camp that if they do not make it to the prem there maybe up to 10 players sold to re-finance(14)(2)That's fact not rumour.I would say its a cast iron certainty

alan judge from notts county to leicester young promising young player just the sort of player pearson likes. fee will be around 500,000(4)(11)Notts fan here, You will have to offer a lot lot more than 500k my friend to even temp himNotts Fan or Notts Chairman? £500k for an unproven player at Championship level to a skint club, I think you will find Notts will snap Leicesters hands off mateIf you have seen him play you will find out hes worth alot more that 500k my friendLeicester linked with yet another non entity from the lower leagues, when will it end for gods sake,we must aim a little higher than that, surelyUnproven at Championship level? You forgot his time with Plymouth at that level where he tore many teams apart. Either you forgot, or you simply commented without having a clue what you were talking about.
Judge is a class player, and now he is playing regularly this is showing through. Will go far, and £500k is laughable for a player of his ability. Notts County have a real gem there, no surprise he is doing well for them. Typical "big club" mentality from LCFC fans, who haven't really got a clue!

Burnley to sign Josh Mcquoid after previously being on loan at the Clarets for a fee in the region of 350k. Brett Pitman could also be arriving from Bristol City, having previously played under Howe at Bournemouth(5)(13)Burnley can HAVE him FOR £500GRD! Thats what WE PAID FOR HIM!Mcquoid has asked to leave millwall. Millwall feel this is a good financial decision instead of letting him run down his contract. use his wages elsewhere


04 May 2012 13:28:53
What I did hear was Dicanio is set for West Ham regardless if there promoted or not.
Where that leaves Swindon god knows as he still has 1 year left on contract.However when has that ever matterd Hoddle/Wise/walked
seems hard on Swindon Fans and Board.
What is amazing is the debt that West Ham are supposed to have and Dicanio is used to getting his own way.Still maybe B/S(4)(15)Allardice??This is Bullhit Di Canio wont go if you have a clear out of players plus he is not ready yet for the championship as a manager.I guess winning the play offs wont help sam, and dicanio negotiating next seasons line up and his contact extension has any bearing on him going to west ham either

Noises from Liverpool
Watching Adam Johnson!
With Man Blue still determined to spend, his options are starting to decrease - will all depend on the sky blues spending and his possibly ommision from European squad(18)(7)I hope not, even this xenophobic Liverpool manager must have noticed that buying British doesn't not mean buying quality, it usually means overspending. I hope that the American owners say no. And that he the manager should look in Europe for value for money.

r.jaidi released
l.barnard loan
d.connoly free
j.puncheon 2m loan(12)(28)J.puncheon 2m

LMFAO, four million for Jarvis ?I'm a saints fan, and saying we would spend 11 million on two forwards, one being KEVIN DOYLE, is ridiculous. stop posting this tripe, you're making saints fans look stupid.No one wanted Puncheon for 500k in January, why on earth would someone now pay £2m for him, when he played about 5 more games for us and was useless. Pathetic.Doyle - £6M - DEAL
Jarvis - £4M - NO DEALJ Rod has plenty of options i.e:Everton,Fulham,Norwich,Wigan etc,all clubs any player SHOULD choose over Saints,not knocking Saints achievments but he'd be mad to turn down clubs of that calibre for Southampton,as a Burnley supporter i'll be gutted to see him go but the lad has been destined for the big time for a few seasons but i'm sorry Saints are not big time(yet)Saints you dont need to look stupid :)Whoever you are, you have no clue!
If you are really a Saints fan stop posting this nonsense-the fees are stupid and I suspect all the individuals are way off, apart from maybe Jarvis and that has been in the national press for several days.£4 mill for an england international - double it & you're about right. But then you'll be at the back of a fairly big queue of teams wanting to sign himdoyle wont be leaving wolves this i promise you..., jarvis yeah we have all heard the rumours about stoke...but dont be to sure that he will leave either..., and this is a fact not one player from our club would leave and join yours..., you dont have the financial backing for one let alone being able to attract big players...Hillarious...from the apparent Burnley fan...FYI Saints are a bigger club than Fulham, Norwich and Wigan...the jealousy on this site is unrealIndeed Fulman and Wigan 'bigger time' than Saints... what is that guy on. I'm sure if Burnley were promoted you would understand him leaving for Wigan?


04 May 2012 13:00:08
That's rubbish this take over has been going on for ages so there won't be any issues that could prevent the signing of players. Even if the is true ( very much doubt it ) what about the money reading have got through getting promoted. To be honest think this person might be lying(5)(3)

Reading, Norwich, Blackpool (should they make it out of the playoffs).(4)(20)Leicester are offering him 20k a week to join and i think that has made his head turnWould love coppinger at leicesterLeicester will cutting their wage bill so no more £20k+ a week salaries

With no reliable source or even make any sense. {Ed025's Note - ermmm....because its a rumour site..When a club has been sold it has to have a 6-8 week period where the FA check all finances and regularities players can be sold or brought in for that period with money changing hands..but players can be loaned in ..i think hes correct

Charlton to sign Austin,come on wake up!(5)(18)As far as I am aware Charlie Austin is on many Charlton fans wish list not on the managements list of players they can aquire. Well he's certainly on my wish list and lets be honest he's wasted at Burnley.


04 May 2012 10:25:45
Leicester are not going to be signing loads of players like some on here are claiming.

Hopeful on the vardy being completed soon but plenty of interest from other clubs.

Kane is a loan deal, NOT a full transfer, THFC seem up for it.

Bids rejected for Chester and Stewart but won't be the end of it. Stewart seems more likely than Chester who would favour a move to the North West. A lot will depend on what unfolds at Hull.

Koren bid rejected but expect another to go in soon.(13)(3)Cool the more players a club signs = a qpr a team who dont have a clue what there doing..looks like more champship football again for lesta after next seasonFesta have been banging on about hull players for ages. None will happen hull are not in financial trouble, won't sell big name players. Especially to the ladyboys from lesta

Watford fc to sign charlie austin with young prospect Sean Murray going the other way(0)(23)Who wrote this rubbish. 1. we(watford would never sell murray to another championship club due to his string of excellent performances. he rejected man city last year to stay with us and aid his development. 2. Burnley would not sell their top scorer to us even if we did finish above them in the league. we need a striker and i would have him any day but this is rubbish because their is no reality in this what so everIf Burnley want to offer £8m + Austin then we might think about it

A Southampton Scout has been spotted at FC Metalurh Donetsk apparently watching Ukrainian International Mykola Morozyuk. I hope this is just a rumour and nothing more as I haven't even heard of this bloke before today.(5)(12)Scouts watch many players, doesnt mean it will go any further.Since upto yet on this site southampton are buying 57 players worth 310 million thats a lot of scouths they must have lolololol

Neale Cooper of Hartlepool will look at Amari Morgan-Smith(Luton) in pre season, with him being able to play winger/forward it will give cooper a couple of options if he fits the bill(0)(5)

Norwich arebin talks with Leeds over Robert Snodgrass. Neil Warnock want Steve Morison to move the other way.(14)(28)I'm sorry, neil Warnock does not want Steve Morison to move the other way, Pull the other one. Morison is one of the worst strikers I have ever seen.Steve Morison has scored 9 goals in the premiership this season, not bad for a rubbish striker is it.Yeah n Beckford scored 10 in the PL n he's carp! Doesn't prove anything u tool Morrison is good in the air n gettin the brews in

Leeds boss Neil Warnock is showing speculative interest in disgruntled Stoke striker Cameron Jerome. Jerome has publicised his need for more regular involvement and this week warned he may have to find a new club as he is in "The peak of his career. The £4 million price tag, which Stoke paid to take him from Birmingham, could be a stumbling block for any potential deal yet speculation has it the quick fire sale of Adam Clayton could be used to fund any potential bid.(4)(25)Peak of his career? That's just sad.

Steve EFCCome on it took him about 90 seconds to score v Everton- he can't be that goodHes got 4 years left to run and why would he want go to leeds a poor low division outfit..he would sooner be on the bench against teams like man united then play for leeds against rochdale lolMaybe he just wants to play for a BIG team? Can't blame the lad really....Stoke are a huge club. Their stadium holds a gigantic 27,000 and they are regarded as an enormous force to be reckoned with in the Premier League. I think its fair to say that the Premier League would badly miss Stoke if they were relegated.

Stoke have also never won a major trophy, emphasizing beyond question the size of the club.There isn't a bigger team than Stoke.They're all massive. He has made noise about not getting starts but is becoming a bit of a favourite coming off the bench. Can see him getting more game time next season if Jones and Fuller are shipped out

04 May 2012 02:32:49
cameron stewart either off to leicester or west ham for 5 million quid
and supposely the allams can afford a striker worth 40 grand worth of wages a week but who?
and supposely we could of signed billy dsharp but barmby and Adam pearson didnt want him
plus and the reason adam pearson has left due to wanting to give 100% attention to hull fc(1)(11)That's bull about sharp as he was one of the most wanted strikers in the championship along with Maynard idiotFantastic post............. Obviously written by a delusional 5 year old, judging by the grammar!! There are major holes in this rumour, West Ham won't be making any transfer plans untill after the playoffs, there are far more proven players available for less than 5mil and finally Sharps transfer saga was well reported by the press so if hull were interested it would of been noted!Unlikely any team in Championship will pay £5m for 1 player or wages of £40k a week. It wouldn't stack up under new finance rules


04 May 2012 02:24:20
Wake up and rub the cornflakes off your face, Reading is past history for Gilfy Sig Swansea is his adopted home and he will sign ....(7)(18)Swansea got Gylfi because they were in Prem at time and Gylfi is a Prem league player...Reading are a Prem league team let's wait and see...your post could come back and haunt you ...Hah keep dreaming mate, Hes only there because of Brendon. He loves Reading, his home, family and best freinds are there, he regularly come down to our training ground and speaks to Mcdermot all the time. He would 100% choose Reading over Swansea but this is all irrelivant as he is too good for both of us, he off to a top 6 club.As a reading fan, i think its a load of b/s that either of us will get him. and if im honest i dont want us too, it would be a step back in his career that i would want to see him make. i really hope he does the intelligent thing and goes to a top 6 clubSwansea can't afford him. They could only offer £4 Million. Why would Hoffenheim let him go for less then they paid for him?


04 May 2012 02:21:06
Leroy Lita welcome to go back to Reading, the guy has an ego the size of Russia, what a poor attitude,(3)(18)No thanks, couldnt pay us to take him back.I would swap him for ismael miller.

Leeds United looking to sign Noel Hunt if Jermaine Beckford's wage demands prove too high(5)(28)No your not, McDermott said that every player who won us the title will have their chance at the big time. Plus he is the most popular person here, no way will he move.Also Leeds cant afford to pay Beckford a packet of hobnobs a week. Never mind the £40K/week the the Foxes pay him. Good Luck!
