verpool are looking to sign the following:

Maxi Rodriguez (1.5mil) January
Marouane Chamakh (free) Summer
Luis Suarez (Babel + 10.5mil) Summer
Juan Mata (Riera + 10mil) Summer

Dirk Kuyt (16mil) only
Charles Itjande (free)
Sotiris Kyrgiakos (1.5mil)
Philip Degen (1mil)
Nabil El Zhar (2mil)

Benitez does not want to sell Kuyt. However City's offer of 16mil for a 30 year old will be too good to turn down. City want an industrious player to complement the flair of their players.

Reina Cavalieri
Johnson Azpilicueta
Carragher Agger Cahill Kelly Ayala
Aurelio Insua
Mascherano Lucas Spearing
Aquilani McCarthy
Suarez Mata
Benayoun Rodriguez Moses
Gerrard Lodeiro Pacheco
Torres Chamakh Ngog


Big rumour coming out of Kilmarnock tonight is that Jim Jeffries has emphatically told the chairman (Michael Johnston) where he can shove it.

Expect to see him take over at Swansea City once Paolo Sousa becomes Burnley boss.

Jim will bring Kevin Kyle to Swansea on a free. Kevin is very loyal to Jim and has no qualms about moving down to South Wales.

Also expect Lewis Stevenson and Craig Conway to move to The Liberty Stadium very soon too.


My sister works at murray park and she said she saw Alan Smith there with guys in suits(she knows who alan smith is coz shes a leeds fan)


More chattering from the Ship in Lytham Lancashire.

Very sad day at PNE yesterday as Rob Kelly and Billy Barr said their goodbyes. All the players are genuinely very upset to see these two being dumped by Darren, especially after last weeks scoreline.
Fergie Jr's very acerbic manner has already "wound up" a few players and after calling one player "F#T and L#zy" and another "on his way out".
Already their are a large number of calls to agents and even one to South Yorkshire by a number of fed up players.
The First of AI loan deals discussed before he went, should be in place by mid Jan.


Glad to hear all the good celtic fans slagging off rangers! Its not as if they boo on remembrance day or anything is it? Maybe some people on this website should take a good long look at themselves before talking about others.
Anyway, arsenal may raid west ham in the summer for valon Behrami. He may be used as a full back or midfielder. This could see an end to Eboue's arsenal career.


Whoever sed Ribery 2 UNITED is a mug, if they actually did their research they'd know he's in contract talks at the moment. NOW REAL TRANSFERS: MAXI (LFC–£1.5) NO signings 4 united unless a big name leaves...AND FINALLY: LFC could be seeing a straight swap between Babel and Eljero Elia ( if u hant seen him search on youtube) watch this space LFCLUKE95


Rangers fans denying trouble, Man U fans disguised as Celtic fans.... all a little far fetched is it not.... The fact is trouble has blighted both English and Scottish Football, but of recent times Rangers have repeatedly been naughty but never accept any blame whatsover which is why they cannot be taken seriously and cannot be sold. Yakubu to Celtic for 12 mill yes that's a Boyd will leave Rangers as they can't afford to pay him properly and I believe Barry Ferguson ex Rangers captain has advised him to jump at the chance especially with the current managment working with no contracts. Football is fickle and we fans are also fickle, so the sensible option would be to sort yourself out regardless. From Celtic McGeady will be leaving as well turning down 10 million for someone worth 5 maybe 6 at the most FACT or maybe just a sensible OPINION.... Any truth in the rumour of Bellamy to Bolton?


Jermaine Beckford the goal machine will sign for the Toon in the next few days with Mile Ranger heading the other way on loan. wouldn't be surprised to see Kris boyd also signed, with david bentley coming on loan as he has been spotted in Newcastle, with the cjamce to sign him in the summer. To the muppet (obveously a sunderland supporter) who thinks Newcastle will just make the play offs, West brom will be miles away from us in the nxt two weeks, theyl get beat off forest tonite then Newcastle will spank them at st james park. Steve bruce will do his up most to get sunderland relegated hahha....he is a geordie

To the Bias idiot who wrote this above. Forest and Albion have as much a chance of winning the Championship as you. If a west brom fan was writing rumours he also would have said we're going to destroy Newcastle at the St James Park. Steve Bruce as far as I know is trying his best to even challenge for europe. But it is your opinion and I respect that so sorry for any inconvenience. Maxi to sign for Liverpool soon. Zat Knights been crap so I wouldn't be surprised for Coyle to offload him.


People posting stuff u all are lliars sometimes mixing truth with lies to make it believable let's make this site a site where we can come to here the truths and be excited about what player is coming in or out not to sevsomeone say my auntie or my dad heard works at the emirates or heard from melwood that so and so is coming yes a manager is really going to tell a janitor what he won't even tell his wife. Let's keep this factual not with lies I am about to post something but listen to the language I use.
Maxi rodriguez will most like sign for Liverpool somewhere in the next week.benitez will probably get chamakh to sign a pre contract with liverpool because the club is a great club and for the fact that arsenal don't pay their players high just low amounts. Benitez might get van der vaart but aquilani already plays in that roll. He needs a defender and a striker and pray that they work out but believe it or not kuyt can play in the torres roll he does it very well for the Dutch team I really think he needs rest even though you might be good play over and over and your performances will lose it's bite. There those are my opinions plus alittle speculation


Ok, to the person who claimed Ellington to join Forest on loan. He's already on loan to Greek Premier League side Skoda Xanthi. I would have checked this out before posting what you overheard in a pub. Also, the Deal involving loach to United with Big Ben Foster coming the other way. I would dearly like this to be true but unfortunately Loach's only potential Premiership destination this January is Spurs. Harry 'Bels Palsey' Redknapp is eyeing the England U21 Stopper.


To the person that said Real Madrid have given up hope of signing Rooney, and have now offered Liverpool RVN + VDV + Benzema+ 20million. For FERNANDO TORRES!!!

this is never gonna happen as firstly its not true and secondly fenando torres hates real madrid. now to my rumours not facts
Maxi rodriguez loan/buy
charmakh pre contract
upson buy (unlikly)


Highly rated polish midfielder Adam Danch looks set to join leicester city on loan for rest of season with a view to a permanent transfer.

Ekene Emigo will also join on a 3 year deal within this week to provide competition at right back.


Strong rumour up here that david wotherspoon is moving to bristol city for 250k


To the chap who apparently works at this hotel in salford taking a booking for a mr k benzema.

why would his agent use his real name to book a hotel room for 6 months and not rent a private house??????????

even cristiano ronaldo didn't use his real name when havig works done.

went by his mothers maiden name, mr cristiano suarez!!!!!


Jermaine Beckford the goal machine will sign for the Toon in the next few days with Mile Ranger heading the other way on loan. wouldn't be surprised to see Kris boyd also signed, with david bentley coming on loan as he has been spotted in Newcastle, with the cjamce to sign him in the summer. To the muppet (obveously a sunderland supporter) who thinks Newcastle will just make the play offs, West brom will be miles away from us in the nxt two weeks, theyl get beat off forest tonite then Newcastle will spank them at st james park. Steve bruce will do his up most to get sunderland relegated hahha....he is a geordie


I have it on very good authority that alex mcleish asked about cardiff, s welsh internation joe ledleys availability and with joe's contract up in the summer he is prepaired to come back with a cheeky bid in the next couple of days to test the water .he feels with joe not signing the new contract on offer from cardiff he can tie up a deal for the 28 cap international by next friday so he can team up with best pal cameron jerom


To the idiot who said robbie Keane to Everton, are you stupid, Keane has been a liverpool fan since he was born and he would never go to the scum of merseyside.he will not be joining celtic either because he wants to play in the premier league and not the sht old scotish league.Expect him to join aston villa for 10m or carew+5m.
Onto some true rumours:
expect Liverpool to sign the following:
Maxi Rodriguez(A.Madrid 1.5m)
Marouane Chamack(Bordeaux 5m)
and a surprise move for Reading keeper adam Federici(2m)
leaving will be:
Dossena(Napoli 4.5m–done deal)
Voronin(CSKA Moscow 2.5m)
Cavaleri(AC Milan 5m)



United apparently want to buy Micah Richards, Tim Cahill and John Carew.
In my opinion the only likely signing there is Carew, but not sure if Carew will favour the move as he will want to be playing regularly, which he probably won't at united, villa would accept the offer if macheda went the other way on loan.


Brentford news

According to news from the training ground, Fulham are interested in signing Ryan Dickson for a total fee of £400k with £100k of this based on appearences.


Most Possible Arsenal Striker Transfers:
Darren Bent–Sunderland, £16.5 million
Charlton Cole–West Ham, £9 million
MAroune Zarate–Lazio, £22 million
Saldado– Getafe, £14 million
David Villa–Valencia, £40 million
Rodellega–Wigan, £13 million


Northampton are interested in signing the good prospect goalkeeper from Chelmsford City called ashley harrison.never heard of im myself , could be one for the future.


I work at elland road and NO premiership teams are interested in jermain beckford!! he is on the brink of signing for newcastle


Some TRUE transfer rumours for you –
Suarez (Ajax – Man City) 28 mil
Beattie swap deal with Jason Roberts
Maicon (Inter – Man City) 25 mil
Birmingham will sign Kenwenye Jones, Ryan Babel, Ji–Sung Park, Paul Konchesky and Joe Hart (permenant) for a combind fee of 45 million.
Sunderland will use the Jones money for David Bentley and Jermaine Beckford who will both sign for £11 million.
Man United will make an offer for Jose Bosingwa, but will fail, as Ancelotti wants to keep him as back up.
Chelsea to get Hugo LLoris (11 mil)and Aaron Lennon (15 mil).
Spurs will also sell Alan Hutton, Robbie Keane and Jermaine Jenas for 18 million all to Everton, who will raise the money by selling Yakubu to Celtic for 12 million.
Wigan were impressed by Jobi McAnuffs performance against Liverpool, and will make a 2 million bid and will make a 2 million bid for Scott McDonald as well.
you heard it here first


To thr drivel merchant who said – Ellington to Forest 6 month loan – god no – they haven't cloned the big lump have they – because the one that makes out he is a footballer is already on loan for the rest of the season in the Greek Premier league and he made a debut on wednesday – substituted after 69 mins!!!
Real Rumours – Loach to United is a deal that the agent wants – Mackay less keen and wants Macheda on loan too – if it goes through and Foster is a loan part of the deal – Williamson on loan for 3 months and Helguson till May will happen.




My auties, neighbours dogwalkers' son–in–laws, boss, is a friends of Nigel Doughtys cleaners wife;)

Apparently the cleaner has overhead some of the telephone calls Nige has made in the last few weeks and gathered the following dealings at Forest:

Shorey is in until end of jan, at which point spurs will have brought in cover for Bale, who will then come in for rest of the season with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.

Miles addison is wanting to come, however derby want nearly 3m while doughty is only prepared to pay £1.5m.

Negotiations are onging with Blackpool for Charlie Adam, but lots of things to sort out and so is only 50/50.

As a back up Mackie from Plymouth is being lined up with a fee of £900k agreed and a further £350k if we are promoted.

Garner is going out on loan, with Leeds interested to replace Beckford once he has gone.


Anybody know anymore on the zarate to arsenal rumour?


Is there any truth in the reports of Veloso to Spurs & Bentley to Sunderland?


Villa news:
my brother works at the reception at villa park and has told me that he saw MON talking about jenas, keane, hutton and bentley.
this is part of a swap deal for young and carew with spurs giving us £5 million aswell.good deal for us villians.
this was later made more certain when the news occured that barcelona want james milner but are giving him back to villa on loan untill the world cup.
and the other piece of gossip buzzing around villa park is that we are signing roddelaga from wigan for £5 million, the money we get from spurs.

you heard it here first


United will swoop for Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez and he is willing to use Nani in the Sanchez heard it here first from juniorGod..
btw note to the editor: like this new look of the site.very well done. {editor's note – I can't claim any of the credit for the new look, other than saying 'yes, I like that one' when I was shown it lol. But thank you very much, I will pass your thanks onto the designer.}


Birmingham will complete deal to sign babel from liverpool late next week for 11.75m.., little known left back DEL HORNO for 5m... STEVEN WHITTAKER 3M... & will get K. JONES 12M..


There will be an unprecedented exodus of players from Scotland over the next two weeks to England – mainly to Championship, but also to EPL. Financial difficulties for English clubs are leading them to the relative value for money from tried and tested players in Scotland. There are absolutely no players in Scotland that not for sale – not even McGeady for the right price.

Expect to see the following notable moves:

Boyd (1M) – Forest – They're playing a patient game for his signature, but see his goals the key to promotion to EPL. It suits Boydy too as he'll get the chance to prove himself in a lower league before his dream of playing in EPL. Smith will be looking to younger players to step up to the mark.

McManus (1M) – Newcastle – Despite criticism, McManus's backs to the wall defensive style is still sought by the toon to bolster their title push. Mowbray will be happy to let him go with O'Dea returning from his loan and Thomson progressing well.

Scott Brown (7m) – Birmingham – McLeish is a long time admirer of fiery Brown. His determined play and undoubted skill will add steel to Brum's midfield, whilst allowing Celtic to cash in on an asset that's still failed to fully fit in at CP.

McGregor (4M) – Man Utd – Perhaps a surprise, but Ferguson rates McGregor highly and sees him a long–term first team regular once he's cut his teeth as an understudy. Rangers will cash in on a player with off–field issues that pose risk to future deals.

Thomson (3M) – Bolton – Expect Owen Coyle to continue to look for steady Scottish players in his new club. Thomson would certainly cut it in EPL and offers good value for money as Rangers must sell.

Samaras (3M) – West Brom – recent form has alerted English clubs once again to his pedigree. Celtic will let him go on the basis that they need a goal scorer rather than a good forward.

Expect to see some swap deals between SPL clubs. Hibs and Hearts will both be involved in such deals with Celtic and Rangers respectively. Stokes and Nade are well documented, but also Miller and Stewart – much to the annoyance of many fans from all teams concerned.

Robert Earnshaw has been given permission to talk to Newcastle United, a fee of £1.75m has been agreed and he's expected in Newcastle on Monday morning to look around the facilites and discuss terms.



Joe Garner has agreed a deal to come to Leeds on loan until the end of the season. Expect Snodgrass to go to the Florists. Arron Davies has already sorted out accomodation in Leeds. Dean Leacock is not keen on leaving Derby as he is on stupidly high wages, which Leeds do not want to match.


My friend who is a sports journalist told me these ae the rumours circulating the media at the moment.

Bobby Zamora's injury agsainst Stoke may have hampered an 8 million pounds move to Arsenal, Chelsea are also considering moving for in form Zamora as cover for Didier Drogba who is away for the African Cup of Nations.

Real Madird will begin their campaign to pursuade Wayne Rooney to sign for the Spanish giants, they will wait until summer before making a 60 million pounds bid.

Barcelona are keen on bringing James Milner to the Nou Camp and are preparing a 20 million pound bid for the versatile Aston Villa and England international.

Fernando Torres will reject a move to Man City even if Liverpool accept a massive bid, he wants to stay at Liverpool until they win the title.

Man City will make Mathew Upson one of the highest earners at Eastlands if the club can agree a fee with West Ham. West Ham are holding out for 13 million.


Mark Robins is to make a swoop for Carl Dickinson on permanent deal in the summer for around 300k, he will also evaluate Ryan Shotton's situation at Stoke because he is set to be in Tony Pulis' plans for the future. Nathan Doyle is also set to join oakwell in this window for an estimated 250k. Robins is also set to be sniffing around Billy Sharp currently on loan at Doncaster Rovers, the fee is rumoured to be 750k. Mark Robins is now fnally set to sign Ivory Coast centre half Steve Gohouri from German side Borussia Munchengladbach. Stephan Flauder is currently on trial at oakwell the german is also set to sign a 6 month contract with the Tykes with a view to a extended contract in the summer. Mark Robins has also shown his intrest in Zak Whitbread who is on the transfer list at Millwall but they want at least 400k for the Centre Back.

Leavin oakwell this window is Kayode Odejayi to Colchester, this has alread gone through. Moniour El Haimour will have his contract cancelled by mutual consent. Martin Devaney is set to make his switch to MK Dons permenant reported to be 150k. Jonny Macken has been linked with Notts County, Leeds United, And other league 1 clubs, but Robins has said he has no plans to sell the experienced striker. Notts County have also enquied about Rob Kozluck. Finally Michael Coulson will leave the club after a injury riddled spell at oakwell and leave for Grimsby on a permenant deal around 100k. Onome Sodje has been told he can leave the club after failing to impress Mark Robins. Oneil Thompson will be sent out on loan for the rest of the season after failing to break into the first team, he may be sold in the summer.


Plymouth Argyle's transfer embargo has been lifted, but Paul Mariner does not have funds to bring in new faces. Any new arrivals will have to be funded by the sale or release of existing players. Paul Sturrock's time at the club has resulted in a large, highly paid squad, but woefully short of quality.

The following players are likely to be shown the door, many of which are already in talk with the clubs mentioned:

Paterson (return to Motherwell, £50k)
Timar (on loan at Oldham, view to perm, £120k)
Puncheon (on loan at MKD, poss to FC Twente, £1m)
Mackie (Derby or Forest, £1.5m)
MacLean (Hearts or Hibs, Free)
McNamee (Dundee Utd, Free)
Seip (on loan at Sheff Utd, view to perm, £200k)
Barnes (poss loan to Exeter)
Donnelly (in talks with Torquay, Free)

The following players should now return to Home Park on extended loan deals:

Gray (Man Utd) – view to perm
Lowry (Villa)
Blake (Cardiff)

Mariner is in talks with clubs and players about the following moves:

Healy (Sunderland) – loan, view to £600k perm
Basso (Bristol City) – Free
Francis (Southend) – £250k


I work at the Lowry Hotel in Salford.

Yesterday we took a 6 month booking from Red Football Joint Venture Ltd for our most expensive suite, for a Mr K Benzema.

Make of it what you will.


Leeds united are interested in signing a replacement for goal "machine" jermaine beckford, the favourites for the replacement are bradly wright phillips, or out of favour frederico macheda as he his is looking to get first team football at a lower club to build his way up and leeds united look favourites to for fill that ambition for the young striker. Therefore the deal will not be perminent as it will only be a loan deal. Other rumours Gareth Southgate former middlesborough player, and manager is set to join burnley as there new manager after Owen coyles departure.


Out of favour midfielder/winger Nani is set to be on his way to FC Porto with "HULK" going in the opposite direction.


Paul Stimson will replace Andy Scott as Brentford manager when the current Bees boss is offered and accepts the Burnley job.


The news coming out of stoke city is that zaki will not sign and he will instead purchase kenwyne jones for 10m also arriving at the britannia stadium will be jamie o'hara on loan and jermaine jenas for 5 million pounds


My mate is a groundsman at Vicarage road and he tells me Scott Loach will sign for Man U this month while Ben Foster will come to Watford on loan for the rest of the season.


Fabian Delph is to be loaned to Leeds until season end as agreement during original transfer to Villa
Beckford is already checking hotels in Newcastle
Snodgrass has turned down any talk of transfer to Middlesborough and has no wish to leave Leeds
Liverpool having talks with West Ham perhaps for Carlton Cole whilst Torres has operation ?


Some Liverpool F.C News!

I have it on good authority that the Maxi Rodriguez deal will be completed by Sunday, a loan deal to begin with and making the move permenent should he be a success.

Another story coming from my sources is a double deal to be announced on monday, liverpool are to sign a striker this is none other than Ruud Van Nistlerooj, and a centre half who is currently playing in the premiership believed to be Gary Cahill.

These deals will be funded by the sale of 4 current squad players, voronin 2mil to S.Moscow, Dossena 4mil to Napoli, Albert Riera 6.5mil to Olympiakos and the surprise is Yossi Benayoun & 2mil to bolton as part of the cahill deal


Any more doncaster rumours


Ji Sung Park will be the first major signing Mcleish makes for Birmingham this January, aswell as identifying a few other high profile targets


Pandev Lazio–Inter (Official)
Tiago Juventus–Atletico (Official)
Dossena Liverpool–Napoli (Official)
Molinaro Juventus–Stuttgart (Official)
Viera Inter–Man City (Official)
Douglas Costa Gremio–Shaktar Donetsk (Official)

Arsenal are prepared 2 offer Sol Campbell a deal till the end of the season providing they can sell Senderos 4 about 5 million. There are also rumours circulating that Arsenal will submit a 40 million euro offer 4 Lazio's Mauro Zarate, a refusal will trigger an offer 4 Madrid's Higuain which will b complicated as Perez will try 4 Cesc. Their cheaper solutions are Cluj's 4 million rated 6 ft 8 19 yr old Lacina Traore and Chamakh.

Chelsea are rumoured 2 have submitted a 30 million bid 4 Aguero but are stuggling to match his requested 5 million a season salary.

Man Utd are set to let Vidic leave 2 AC Milan or Real Madrid in the summer for 20 million and replace him with Gary Cahill and one of Kjaer or Chellini.

Liverpool are wrapping up a deal 4 Maxi Rodriguez and are trying 2 sign Arsenal target Chamakh.


Ji Sung Park has just arrived at st andrews to discuss terms with birmingham. a fee of around 9 million has been agreed.


Heard a rumour that JERMAINE BECKFORD will join LIVERPOOL for £3M + DAVID MARTIN (permanent) + VITOR FLORA (6–month loan).


I have it on good authority that derby will sign darren gibson from man u on loan for the rest of the season. Nigel Clough also looking into signing freddy eastwood from coventry and jobi mcanuff from reading. You heard it here first.


Nottingham Forest are to take Nathan Ellington on loan until the end of the season.


Manchester united will not sell Nani in January and instead give him a chance to prove himself in the reserves before making a decision in the summer


Rivaldo is set to be offered a Coaching role at Birmingham when he retires in the summer


AC Milan coach Leonardo is a possibility to take over at Liverpool when Benitez will be forced out in the summer




To the idiot who said that the Galziers don't mind ending the season trophy–less – do you think the manager, team and fans feel the same way? of course they don't so get a brain lad.

I have it on good authority that Man Utd will be making a HUGE signing this January – he's French and currently plays in Germany. You heard it here first, so watch this space.


Burnley will sign Scott Mcdonald for around 3M after the weekend with the money they will receive for owen coyle



The fraud squad are taking an interest in goings on at tynecastle. Investigations are underway. This is not old news.


Here's a leftfield one for you: Stephen Hunt to be reunited with Nicky Shorey at Forest.

He won't go to wolves, why jump one sinking ship to hop aboard another? Forest will be PL next season, neither Hull nor wolves look likely to be.

Forest have a bright future under davies, many players want to be a part of it.


Paul Lambert will not be joining Burnley as a replacement for Owen Coyle, Lambert has stated his desire to stay at Carrow Road and finish the job he has started.

On the transfer front, the canaries will complete the double signing of Stockports Oli Johnson and Milwalls Zak Whitbread either today or tomorow.
Lambert had a summer deadline day bid turned down for Johnson but cash–strapped county have decided to cash in on their asset.
It is though that City are waiting on the results of Whitbreads medical before announcing the coup.

Meanwhile, it would appear that Lamberts transfer dealings are not yet over, Jamie Cureton looks set to end a dissapointing return to Carrow road with a £150,000 move to league 2 side cheltenham, also heading out of the exit door never to return will be out–of–favour winger Simon Whaley, Rochdale and Bournemouth are said to be interested although wage demands could price them out of the market. Exoect a few younger city stars to head out on loan, including; Cody McDonald, Luke Daley, Josh Dawkin and Tom Adeyemi.
Lambert still hopes to strengthen his squad with the signing of Southend hitman Lee Barnard although he will face stiff competition from many other clubs for his signature.
Also linked with moves to Norfolk are Dave Perkins and Fox of Colchester United although these are both very unlikely with all the unrest between to two clubs.


To the hopeful wee tim living in fantasy land full of glue:

regarding the gers getting banned from europe for crowd trouble .. its the law that you cannot be tried twice for the same thing ya tube !!! rangers were fined for these incidents that was their punishment nob end u can't be punished for the same thing twice lol and they cannot give the money back to rangers and then ban them !!!
my god are things that bad at the piggery that u have to try and delude yourselves with drivel like this !!
mendes on way out so rangers can renew boyds contract. Nothing solid on the loan/transfer in front although smith is looking for another 2 loans til end of season....he may recall andy webster from utd depending on the sort of interest generated for boughie (although he is unlikely to want to leace with the world cup on the horizon)

Offers will be considered for everyone however with the exception of davis, wilson & Boyd (once new contract signed)rangers must sell 1 player during the transfer window .. most likely being mendes, beasley(would like him to stay tho) or boughie. personally for me it would be best to get injury prone mendes of the wage bill as we have coped fine without him



The Great Milenko

Arron Davies to Leeds is a goer. Grayson has been a fan of the winger since his Yeovil days, and has jumped at the chance to sign him.

Forest are one of several clubs currently after Robert Snodgrass, and have thought to have upped their offer to:

Arron Davies
Loan of Joe Garner until end of season

This deal suits Grayson down to the ground, as Garner is a proven goalscorer at League 1, and helps to fill the hole left by Beckford. Whether the money men of Leeds agree (who are holding out for a deal including £1.5 million cash), is to be seen.

Exciting times down at Elland Road.

Leeds Snooper



O'Hara to West Brom. Don't think so. Was at the Britannia for the Stoke v Fulham game and both teams interested. Stoke will only move for him if they fail to get their No 1 target.


Strong rumours that Sunderland could land Beckford from Leeds, also David Bentley seen at Newcastle airport.
Regarding the Kenwynne Jones rumours, great player and almost unplayable when he is in the mood.
Unfortunately just not consistent enough.May well be on the way if Bruce can line up replacement.
Vital times ahead as we are in danger of sliding back towards the wrong end of the table.


Sheffield United

News in last night, german striker keniet Vilhelm was due over on thursday, but this has been put back til next week due to weather problems etc.
Interesting news is that united are to sign a graduate of Glen Hoddles second chance academy.He is to join the academy set up, Stephen Gillett is an attacking full back in the kyle naughton mould.
lastly there will be NO permanent new signings in this transfer window.


Rodallega to join Stoke next week and also Kenwyne Jones involved in a tug of war between them and Birmingham. Despite reports linking Tuncay to Sunderland that is nonsense as he has already played for two clubs this term. Bruce wants Ricardo Fuller but looks unlikely.

Zaki has been offered to a host of Prem clubs including Stoke who aren't interested.

Stoke have inquired about Santa Cruz on loan IF they fail to land their major targets.

Jamie O'Hara who was seen at the Brit for the Fulham game has expressed an interest in joining Stoke if he can overturn his Pompey registration but Jermaine Jenas remains their priority.

Several fringe players to leave the Potteries including Kitson who is interesting West Ham and Celtic.

Stoke have been offered a host of players due to the funds available.


Bristol Football Rumours

1. City
Johnson has been told he has to reduce the massive wage bill before any new players come in. Expect to see a number of the high earners sold off to ease the cash crisis.

Incomings –– John Akinde to return from his loan spell. Steve Durbin ( midfielder ) to join for a modest fee.

2. Rovers
Billy Paynter is very high on the wanted list. Expect an offer by next week and as Rovers are bigger payers than Swindon a deal should be completed by the week after.

Chris Lines to stay at Rovers for another 18 months.


Nottingham forest to sign Shorey permanent this window and Billy Davies also wants Bale tied up to, Snodgrass non starter(why would we want him?)
and beckford is complete horsedung to! when will people get it through there thick skulls that beckford and snodgrass are good league one players and nothing more...maybe stretch to half decent CCC quality, No way on earth is Beckford any better than average prem strikers like harewood, heskey and so on....forest have the best striker outside of the prem in Earnshaw simple as....over n out....derby kiss my swingers!


The Maxi Rodriguez deal is progressing well and so long as there are no hiccups he will be a Liverpool player by Monday tea–time. I reported on here a fortnight ago that very few people outside of the boardroom – not even Gerrard, knew what Rafa's transfer plans were. This remains true with the above being one of two exceptions. As the deals come to 'close' it involves more office staff and more office staff is more links. The second leak – I reported a fortnight ago that Liverpool had expresed an interest in Celtic's McGeady as loan player with a view to buy. I stated that the interest had waned because Birmingham went in with a cash offer. This has now been confirmed in the media by both clubs along with Celtic's rejection (McGeady turned it down). I can now say Liverpool's interest in taking him on loan has returned.


Newcastle will not get Jermaine Beckford unless they pay at least £8m for him. In other news, my source tells me that Portsmouth may be sold once again.


Bilyaletdinov to Zenit St. Petersberg, with Vladimir Bystrov heading to Goodison.


Hello, its me again, Coleen from Bolton.

My mam works in the training ground canteen at Bolton's Euxton Lane (Its a family affair!) and she saw that Forest's Derrick Blackstick having a medical. He's gorgeous apparently.

Well she got talking to him – we're looking for a new boyfriend for our Debbie (she works in community education at the Trotters) – and says that Larry McGuigan the other Forest player I mentioned is going to Spurs instead, Booo!

My mam says to not worry though because we're getting Tamir Cohen's brother who also plays for Forest and some polish wonder kid called Randy Jetski. We're going to have to change our name to Notts Wanderers soon, lol!

In other news, my dad (just a fan, like me) knows a copper who knows someone at the club who say Elmander is going to Stoke.

Oh yeah, I nearly forgot! Owen Coyle, he be unveiled this afternoon at a press conference. God I love him already!

Manchester united in financial trouble? get over it. sir alex will not sign anybody this january and the glazers don't mind ending the season trophyless as they have been the most successful club in england for the last 10 years.
this january sir alex will sell simpson, tosic and possebon. he will loan out welbeck, macheda, de laet and gibson. come summer neville, vds and scholes will retire. foster, berbatov, nani and carrick will be sold and also owen will not get a contract.
sir alex will bring defour, gary cahill, krasic and gourcuff to old trafford.
he will also get 2 of the trio (patricio, adler and neuer).
2 out of these strikers will be at old trafford next season (kiessling, gignac, gervinho, kenwyne jones and hulk).


The agent of Lazio striker Mauro Zarate has confirmed a 40 million euro bid from Arsenal. If this fails they are prepared to offer the same amount to Real Madrid for Higuain


Kris Boyd and Nacho Novo to sign new deals at Rangers early next week, FACT. To the guy that said Rangers are set to be banned from Europe – How come NOTHING has been mentioned in the paper about the hearing? We would all know if Rangers were set to get punished so please stop making stuff up. Also, Pedro Mendes to sign for Sporting Lisbon (£1.5m) and possibly McGregor off to Spurs for £5m. Walter and Ally will probably sign new deals but we won't find out until we've found a new buyer.


It is infact very true Arsenal are pursuing Mauro Zarate, his agent has confirmed it and described it as ''Arsenal may well accomplish what Manchester City failed to do last season''. He says he has been in touch with Arsenal and their board officials. He claims Zarate isn't happy at Lazio. Meanwhile Gonzalo Higuain has denied rumours he is set to move to the guners though.Jermaine Beckford has claimed he is all set for Newcastle. Douglas Costa has signed for Shaktar Donetsk. Birmingham have signed Michel from sporting gijon. Tiago is set to move on loan to Atletico Madrid, from Juve.


Rafa will announce the Maxi Rodriguez deal on Saturday 9th of January. It will be an 18 month deal worth £61k per week. Rafa will also announce that Liverpool Football Club have signed Marouane Chamakh on a pre contract agreement and will sign for the club on July 1. Rafa will pursue one more signing as he feels his squad is thin but he can't find any player who is looking for a loan deal. He has vowed to keep looking with his scouting department, however it looks unlikely. Rafa will, however deposit£1m into Nacional's bank account so that he can sign Nicolas Lodeiro in the summer.


Hey Brumster here I posted yesterday about Derby and who they were selling. Well I managed to get two names of players they are bringing in and both are available free.

LM Nicky Southall 37
Striker Iyseden Christie 33.

He said Mr Clough is trying to add experience to help his young players through the relegation battle. He was also telling me about some Inland Revenue investigation about VAT but then I got a call from my boss asking me to pack my tools away as his bill wasnt paid from November. Hope its sorted quick as the under soil heating still isn't fixed. Brumster.

Seen a lot of Steve Claridge at Pride Park this week nice guy.


To the people posting about Stoke City. As a fellow Potter much as i like to check this board 3/4 times a day, we all know TP does not announce any interest until he signs anyone, so the likes of Rodellega, Zaki etc coming i would say is pretty much zero. Do like me and use the board to check on other clubs activity as i find this quite often very reliable and occasionally the odd snippit about Stoke from different avenues than our own appears.


Bradford City rumour:

Rhodes and Lawn to sell up if they don't go up this season.


Premier League side Stoke City have inked a deal with Wigan for Hugo Rodallega, who will be moving in the transfer window to the Potteries for a reputed 7.8 million pound. This figure will increase depending on the amount of games Rodallega plays for the Potters.

Stoke City have been encouraged by his excitement in joining them, and have reportedly leased a country home in the local town of Endon close to the Potters training facilities for Rodallega.


I reckon that nani will be sold in the summer with him goin to Spain, probably Atletico, along with ben foster, vidic(reluctantly) and darren gibson. Gibson and foster to newely promoted clubs and vidic to Barca. . . . Now, Aguero may be part of the nani deal in player plus cash, akinfeev may join in the summer or when van der sar's deal is finished. Ferguson's patience may also run out with anderson but he won't be sold for 2 years at the earliest, with michael owen released in the summer or jan 2011. . .


To whoever is the retard posting that

"Dundee FC to go into administration next week. Callum Melville is dissatisfied with life at the club, even though they are making progress. He is also unhappy at the situation with the stadium which a director of rivals Dundee United, John Bennet, currently owns. Dundee are in serious debt to John Bennet in terms on the stadium and other loans which Melville has yet to pay off. Melville will try to hand over his shares to Bennett for nothing as an attempt to stop the bank clamping down on him and the stadium being sold. (Apparently a deal with the city council to build a multimillion pound shopping centre is ready to go a head at Mr Bennetts nod)."

At least have your facts right;
1) Dundee are debt free
2) The stadium was only going to cost £500k
3) Melville has told many times of how he is now a Dundee fan



FACT – Yesterday I announced that Robbie Keane will arrive at CP from Spurs during the window. My comrade from Randalstown has been in touch again and said Holy Goalie is the stumbling block from this happening quicker. He's also nephew to a football agent who's had contact from Glasgow Rangers attempting to shift Madjid Bhougerra, Pedro Mendes, Kris Boyd, Kenny Miller, Danny Wilson & Steve Davis – ALL he has been told is that due to ill–payment in debt, ALL must be shipped before the roof crashes. Watch this space. FACT!

McCoist has also had another falling out with John Fleck due to the youngster arriving @ Murry Park smelling of alcohol and poor attitude – Fleck destined for more first team appearances but only due to reduction in playing staff. FACT!!!


To All United Fans....Rooney is going nowhere..the main reason for this is , hes too thick to learn another language so won't go to spain.The truth is United are in the same boat as money , a fading squad and being screwed by football mad(not), yanks.Chelsea and City seem to be the only major players , and unfortunately City are clueless in spending money still.certain players can suit certain clubs, Viera going to city(i seen him on sky yday, hes got a fatter head than david platt now)he is no better than de jong or Kompany.prob would have been a good buy for arsenal.So Chelsea are the best bet for both league and champions league, especially when they sign aguerro....(100% true)I once stood next to David Gill and overheard him say "ive spoken to PK and he will be signing from Barcelona" so I ran and told all my mates, get to the bookies and back utd to sign Patrick Kluivert..The following week they signed Piqetmoral being, we can all be wrong, even from the horses mouth....


I am a relative of Nathan Eccleston and he could be going to Leeds United on loan as part of a deal with Beckford coming to Liverpool. I don't know what will happen but Nathan has been told to wait for a call.


Newcastle will complete the £3m signing of Jermaine Beckford by early next week.


Does anyone know off any transfer news to stoke apart from the nicky maynard crap

People need to stop writing rubbish on here! Liverpool are going to buy a cheap striker, so everyone who is on about villa, dzeko and sergio augerro, stop dreaming, this will never happen!
Maxi is going to be Liverpools only midfielder signing. And we are not going to be buying a defender!
In the summer, rafa will be out FACT! We need a british manager who loves the game, not an internationl waster!
So please don't put up fake gossip about players coming in the summer, because nobody knows whats going to happen! All you liverpool supporters out there, stop dreaming about players who will never come to us.

And Costa will not be going to Man Utd, he has just been signed by Shakter Donesk. So before people write there rubbish gossip rumours, actually do your research and find the facts!


Rangers rumour,

Christian nada will be replacing boyd in the next few days. This is a man who does not score alot of goals but the goals he score's are scored past big clubs rather than the wee clubs boyd scored past.

I don't think the celtic defence will be losing any sleep to be honest.


Real Madrid have given up hope of signing Rooney, and have now offered Liverpool RVN + VDV + Benzema+ 20million. For FERNANDO TORRES!!!


Any rumours about bradford city please


To the guy who said that liverpool could be buying juan mata and your soucre is a sky sports soccer spanish pundits website.
Any chance you could tell us which one?
anyway... maxi deal will be done tommorow (8th Jan)
birmingham will offer 11.5m for babel which will be accepted so liverpool can buy arda turan for 11m {editor's note – he obviously meant Guillem Balague}


To the guy who said that Gerrard and Torres will not play in the world cup as Rafa will not allow them to have operations... Seriously... Where did you get this? Ha it's hilarious that you think Benitez would ruin two players chances of winning the world cup just to keep them on the pitch playing at half capacity. Torres does NOT need an operation, he merely needs to get to full fitness again. Gerrard has the option of an operation, but it is not considered to be the best course. Slow recuperation and physiotherapy will sort his problem out.
Anyway, onto rumours. Arsenal– I've heard that Wenger is looking at Lacine Traore in the Romanina League, playing for Cluj. He has been quoted 4 million euros. Wenger may also move for Carlton Cole depending on what the news is concerning Bendtner. Man UTD will not make any major signings in this window, unless Vidic leaves. In that case, Gary Cahill is on SAF's radar at around £15 million. Ancelotti has said there will be no signings made by Chelsea. He is saving funds for the summer and still has to pay for Daniel Sturridge, who may cost around £8 million. On to Liverpool. Voronin will shortly agree a £2 million deal with Dynamo Moscow, on a wage increase from Liverpool. Following him out the door is Dossena, Napoli is his destination. Following a rejection of an £8 million Babel bid, Birmingham will come back with a £10 million offer. Benitez is reluctant to sell to an English side but may find the cash on offer too tempting. Maxi is almost a done deal, 18 month contract for 1.5 million euros, around £1.2 million, bargain. Arda Turan has been mentioned but this is unlikely, summer if it does happen, Ryan Babel may be used as a bargaining chip in that deal, as he fancies linking up with fellow countryman Frank Riijkaard. I also here Liverpool are looking at Dnipro's Rusol, a strong aerial defender whos good with it at his feet. £6 million is the price, Rafa wants to sort out his defencive woes and is not blind to Carragher's form. Elsewhere, Stoke are interested in Rodallega, but no fee has been agreed and Martinez does not want to sell. Griffin, Cresswell, Kitson and James Beattie have been or will be moved on in the summer, if not now. Villa, Blackburn and Everton have all expressed an interest in Beattie. Everton though, may prefer a move for Benni McCarthy after Jo's indiscretions. Landon Donovan is almost a dead cert on loan.

Rumours, not facts.

Dundee United are to announce Irish Pat Fenlon as their manager today and will pay the Bohemians £75–100,000 – well under the £250,000 Bhms wanted. This means that Pat Fenlon will also seek money that he is owed from the Irish club as Bhms never stuck to a gentlemans agreement with him in which they would let him move for free if a bigger club came around but he would cancel the money owed.


Aston Villa Rumours






Dundee FC to go into administration next week. Callum Melville is dissatisfied with life at the club, even though they are making progress. He is also unhappy at the situation with the stadium which a director of rivals Dundee United, John Bennet, currently owns. Dundee are in serious debt to John Bennet in terms on the stadium and other loans which Melville has yet to pay off. Melville will try to hand over his shares to Bennett for nothing as an attempt to stop the bank clamping down on him and the stadium being sold. (Apparently a deal with the city council to build a multimillion pound shopping centre is ready to go a head at Mr Bennetts nod).


Ally McCoist is posed to leave Rangers in the summer. He is currently assistant manager and is not on a payed contract with the club. He wishes to move into management on his own by starting with a higher first division/lower scottish premier league club and then building his way up.


Rangers are to be handed a one year ban from Europe for the incidents involving their fans over the years. Notable incidents include Manchester and the most recent trip to Romania. FIFA will also pay them back the money Rangers have already payed in fines. But when you add this onto the money that Rangers will loose from missing European participation they will still loose a substancial ammount.


Just heard that Mauro Zarate maybe on his way to Arsenal from Lazio, he will definately fit in with his quality and he has a style of play of which is typical with Arsenal, I'm a bit suprised cause I was expecting more of a big strong target player coming in unless Wenger has plans of signing Zarate along with promising 6"7 youngster Traore from Romanian side Cluj. Watch this space can see this kind of deal happening before the transfer window closes


Who is repeatedly posting these Robert Snodgrass/Arron Davies swap rumours? Someone clearly needs their head seeing to, as Scotland–international Snodgrass is Leeds' best player, and so–called Welsh international Davies was so bad he had to loaned to league strugglers Brighton, where he made no impact, and was then rejected by Gus Poyet. So why would the side at the top of League One want him?
Beckford switch is to be to Wigan, 2mil, plus loan of James McCarthy
Fabian Delph loan to Derby is true too, from what I hear
The Great Milenko


Stephen McLean to be signed for Hibs not Hearts
Anthony Stokes and Sol Bamba leaving Hibs for Celtic and French club Lille respectively


Anyone know anything true regarding LFC? if Rafa is willing to take a gamble on Moses why not Beckford 3 mil is not a lot for a young striker!



celtic will sign carlos menseguez and semar stilic within the next 4 days for a combined fee of 3 million pounds
maruis lewandowski will come to glasgow tomorrow to discuss terms after a 3 million pound fee was agreed

paul slane to sign a pre contract agreement
anthony stokes to be brought in with chris killen going the other way to hibs
also expect celtic to sign matthew kilgallon or/and sean st ledger


Fran Merida has not signed anything with Atletico. The only team he has held any talks with is Arsenal, who are his first choice. He will sign a new deal at the Emirates by the end of next week.


Bristol city are searching for a target man having never replaced dele adebola. Top targets are hull's caleb folan and preston's chris brown.
