Ipswich have offered Matthew Upson a 3yr contract. Upon seriously considering joining due to lack of prem offers and being originally from the area.

Do you really think upson will join Ipswich how can they pay his wages he is going to want high wages what is your source for upson coming to Ipswich

They have offered what they can afford - £15k per week. Not saying he will take it but the offer is there - like I said his options are limited by lack of interest and he has ties to the area

Ok but I ask what your Soucre is I have seen nothing or heard nothing about Ipswich even looking at upson let alone giving him a offer

The new Leeds signing is Sammy Clingan. Wiki (I know it's not the most reliable source) say he's in talks for an undisclosed fee of around £200,000. Might not be true but strange how it's such a low amount and funny how the story of him coming before just died away and yet no one else has bought Clingan or in fact he hasn't come out and said he's not going anywhere.

Leeds are to turn to Jesus in their search to end their striker crisis. They have enquired about the availability of Jesus Fernandez Saez from Liverpool on loan. Ironically should they fail to land the Spaniard another potential target is former Liverpool forward Neil Mellor of Preston with Billy Paynter or Ross McCormack going the opposite direction on loan.
Leeds are also set to refer back to Aston Villa for the loaning of a defender but it's surprisingly not Eric Lichaj but young talent Nathan Baker who can play at the centre of defence or left back.

‎34 games in in League One and we get 12 Million great business Saints...Arsenal you have been mugged off


We are only getting £7 million up front

{Ed022's Note - Mugged off? Don't think so. He will be worth about far more than the £7m outlay or even the £12m rumoured final price. plus in a couple of seasons and we will triple (and some) our outlay if and when we sell him? Speculate to accumulate...}



08 Aug 2011 16:24:25
Southampton and Arsenal

Further to my last post, the signing of Oxlade-Chamberlain by Arsenal is imminent.

There are plenty of reports now confirming that the initial payment is at least £5 million (Guardian), but almost certainly £7 million.

There will be more money up to £5 million depending on appearances and caps.

However, it does appear that the pay on clause is much much higher than the 10% I thought.

Whilst Arsenal refused a 40% clause, they have accepted Southampton's counter offer of 30%

hi this is my second post in my last post i said aqua man is staying and he is still here and will be untill january. i also said liverpool will be signing two more players both defenders enrique deal is still to be agreed. as newcastle want a 20% sell on clause in the contract. G cahill was in the anfield road end for the game against valencia he was sat in sect 125 not sure of the exact seat but i have photographic evidance and overheard a conversation saying he would love a move to liverpool as he sees the club matching his ambition.

Rumours on the Stoke sites that Wilson Palacios is at the Brit. I can tell you all 100% that the car in question is NOT his but he is very close to a deal and Peter Crouch has all but ruled out a move to Sunderland today making a move to Stoke a real possibility. Local for him also being from Cheshire.

A real surprise full back in very advanced talks also.

Stoke are slowly building a very nice team for the new season.

As for Scott Parker- he has completely ruled out a move to the Potters

Sorensen could well be on his way in the next few days as soon as Pulis finds a replacement number two keeper

He's signing for West Brom for £6 million.

As a Reading fan you would know that as it's all over the Reading papers. Also you'd know that McD said we wouldnt sell to a championship team.

I assume you're a saints fan with ideas above your station.



08 Aug 2011 13:28:39
From sources at Coventry:

Sammy Clingan rated as "highly unlikely" to leave this side of the January window.

Birmingham in with a £3-million offer for Ben Turner, but Coventry asking for guarantees of Birmingham's ability to pay. If Turner goes, it will hasten departure from Birmingham of Scott Dann, giving Coventry a further £1-million sell-on bonus.

Manager Andy Thorn will be given £500,000 of those funds to complete signing of Adam le Fondre from Rotherham.

Coventry have asked Wolves about Sylvan Ebanks-Blake on a season loam, but want Wolves to continue to pay his wages.

Coventry NOT interested in Sunderland defender George McCartney.



08 Aug 2011 13:22:54

Upson is available on a Bosman and will be paid £32,000 a week.

Scott Dann will join Stoke by Friday after the two clubs finally agreed a fee of £7.5 million.

The offer made by Stoke is only marginally better than their previous offer but Birmingham are in desperate need of any available finance. It is unlikely Stoke will sign Cameron Jerome because they have turned their attention to Newcastle's Alan Smith and Fulham's Andrew Johnson.

To the brum fans...
Any truth in you chasing Alan Smith? Apparently you're set to beat Leeds United (nooooooooooo) to the signature of Mr Smith. I am a Leeds fan and I definitely don't hate him, he would be a fantastic asset at Championship level if he kept fit.
It's probably the Hughton factor coming into play here I suspect.

Southampton/Arsenal. As widely reported, the deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain is nearly completed. Ongoing and lengthy negotiations aren't far away from being resolved.

Looks like I wasn't far wrong: Arsenal will pay £7 million for the player, with another £5 million in appearance clauses. It is possible although unconfirmed, that the £7 million will be paid over 5 months, with £1.2 million being paid every month until Dec 11.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been unhappy for some time and is keen to move but Wenger's reluctance to commit to such a large deal has been a stumbling block.

The details above are reported in the Times and in the Daily Telegraph. Saints wanted a 40% pay-on clause inserted but this was rejected by Arsenal. Arsenal instead offered to increase the initial bid from £6 million to £7 million, with a 10% pay-on clause.



08 Aug 2011 11:54:57
Grant Holt of Norwich City has a tough decision to make.

Newcastle have lodged a reported 3.5 million bid, this is likely to be turned down but Holt may be drawn into a drama being that he is a boyhood fan of the club and from the area.

Keane would also welcome a move to a club with a strong bond to developing young Manchester United players.



08 Aug 2011 01:49:36
Amidst talk that Nigel Adkins is looking to spend big to bring in a striker a few targets have emerged. It is thought that Adkins does not hold interest in Maynard as he worries about his injury record (2 severe leg injuries at 24) and Long who is not going to another championship team.

With a largely unused transfer budget and an incoming windfall from Chamberlain's transfer to Arsenal for 12m, Adkins has a huge budget and has been told that he can offer wages up to 45k to get his man/

Adkins has four players in mind, although he will only sign one

Jay Rodriguez - 4m Mail incorrectly reported Saints were after Fox as well. The most likely to sign as he is rumoured to be keen to leave as he is unimpressed With Burnley's lack of ambition in the transfer market and lack of effort to keep Eagles and Mears.

Marvin Sordell - a 5m bid was rejected, the club will return with another offer, likely to include Dan Seabourne in addition to 5.5m

Jelle Vossen - 8m, the club know that this is a long shot and would be a massive coup, however Genk are thought to be satisfied with the fee offered and Vossen has intimated to their board that he will listen to Southampton's offer.

Frazier Campbell - 3m; said to be unhappy at the lack of games at Sunderland and is looking to get his career back on track, West Ham, Forest and Brighton are also keen on Campbell

Also, the Gorkss/Puncheon swap will go through by Wednesday.

Ipswich have offered Matthew Upson a 3yr contract. Upon seriously considering joining due to lack of prem offers and being originally from the area.

Do you really think upson will join Ipswich how can they pay his wages he is going to want high wages what is your source for upson coming to Ipswich

They have offered what they can afford - £15k per week. Not saying he will take it but the offer is there - like I said his options are limited by lack of interest and he has ties to the area

Ok but I ask what your Soucre is I have seen nothing or heard nothing about Ipswich even looking at upson let alone giving him a offer
Ex Ipswich manager who lives opposite me and still has info from inside club. He said not a done deal but offer has been made. Believe me or not this is what he has told me
