Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

David Sullivan wants to buy Walsall FC. He wants to stay in the midlands and Walsall is for sale. It will cost around 10 million but could raise to 13 million due to the ground.

If this happens Chris Hutchings will be given to the end of january to sort the club out. He will have a transfer budget and a higher wage budget to spend.

Walsall fans, don't get to excited just yet, we all know what Mr Bonser is like.



Benitez will be given around 12 million in jan with more money depending on the takover. For the moment he has set his sights on a winger. As far as im told he has sent scouts out to watch Matthew Taylor of Bolton, Ozil of Werder Bremen and Adam Johnson of Boro. Also a scout has been sent to italy to watch this boy Abate who is playing at Torino and is quite a talent. Suggestion was made to Benitez by summer signing Alberto Aquilani who played alongside him for the italy under21 side. If funds are left or made available Benitez will look to ship out Vorinin and bring in one of Diogo(olympikos) Aaron Hunt(bremen) Carlton Cole(west ham) or Roman Pavulichenko(spelling, spurs). Rafa is also monitering Rafael Van Der Vaart's situation as Lucas has spoken to him and told him he can't take the pressure from the fans anymore and if it dosent improve by jan he wants to move back to brazil.


Walsall linked with Whitley Bay duo, midfielder Damon Robson and striker Paul Chow as the club continues to push for promotion to the championship before the sale of the club to Dubia based internet company UTS International.


QPR will raid Leicester for Lloyd Dyer and DJ Campbell and it will cost them 1m + Hogan Ephraim


BIG STORY.... Kevin Keegan –To be installed as Tottenham Manager by the weekend Redknapp`s in trouble bigtime with the law MY cousin whos in the spurs academy told me this news he heard today and said next week Keegan will be officially confirmed to the media.. JAKE WILSON.


Harry Redknapp to West Ham to replace Zola. The real reason all these bets have been occuring. Zola will get the sack very soon and Redknapp will walk straight back to he`s real home not pompey West ham. Sol Campbell to join Redknapp at West ham as player/coach
Kevin Keegan to replace Redknapp at Tottenham.

Despite the decrease in his personal fortune, the Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum has tabled a £225m bid for 50% of Liverpool Football Club.
Prince Faisal bin Fahd bin Abdullah al–Saud will launch a bid for 30% of the club shares.
Tom Hicks will retain 20% of the club shares, with George Gillett leaving the club.
The Royal Bank of Scotland have talked with Wachovia, and they have persued previous interest from Dubai, Kuwait etc. The Kuwaiti's may be involved with the stadium, probably not.
What is also important to note is that Tom Hicks has been in talks with Shuaa Capital, but those talks have gone.

matty upson.arsenal 8 million.
kieron dyer wolves 4 million.

Boruc to Man Utd in Jan, Sir alex been impressed with his attitude this season. Back to his best but cut price 6million. Celtic will give Zaluska and Cervi chance to grab #1 shirt. Scott Brown to spurs in exchange for Robbie Keane, Desmond to put his hand in his pocket for the wage demands. Mowbray hoping Zhi is the new Petrov and will add young Korean Midfielder to squad to balance. Caldwell and McManus both off in january for 3.5 million combined fee to portsmouth who will be managed by Gordon Strachan. Loovens and O'Dea will be first choice CB's with Diamond coming in as cover. Board will be happy with income generated and will give mowbray more money next season to build his team.


Portsmouth are about to undergo a shock metamorphosis into a UEFA Champions League chasing team. This is what my barman told me the other day, and I guffawed in his face. But these were the changes he said were going down:
–Loanees Micheal Brown, Hassan Yebda and Fredéric Piquionne in on long–term deals
–Players in all positions targetted, with names ranging from Manucho to Arsenal's Denilson! on the shopping list.
–86mill to be invested in new stadium developments
–David James to join Tottenham
–Peter Storrie to be.. let go.
Personally, I'll be surprised if they stay up. But we can always live in hope. There is no doubt in anyones minds that Pompey are a proper pucka Premier League team, and we are all behind them.

While you read this site and consider letting everyone know about your rumour. To prevent you from looking silly DONT under any circumstances link AGBONLAHOR with any other club in the Premiership. Do you people that write this drivel not realise that Gabby is living his dream and playing for his childhood club, his family live in Aston and his roots are in Birmingham so please link other forward to your team as GABBY will not be going anywhere for the forseeable future.

Davies on the other hand maybe on his way after trying to hold MON to ransom over a new contract. Expect to see an attacking creative midfielder at Villa Park in January.


Expect to see ajax's right back gregory van der wiel in a united shirt next season. SAF has had him watched a few times and he is young and good value for money. he will be joined by gourcuff but not until the summer. also watch out for cahills move. SAF sees him as the future beside vidic. Berbatov is not moving and will be awesome this season. Also rumour is that owens contract won't go past the summer so i would expect to see a young third striker come in. possibles:




Arsenal News

The name that was on top of Wengers list according to a guy who claims to be in the know??? one CASSIO LINCOLN who played recently for galatasary, and is a free agent, this guy was being watched as a replacement for rosicky if he'd not recovered.

the other name's from turkey that keep being mentioned are Arda Turan and Nuri Sahin, both are expected to sign on at the emirates next summer, along with eden hazard and yohann cabaye.

Neven Subotic and Christian Zapata will come into defence and Akinfeev or Stekelenberg in goal.

Chamackh will be the only forward brought in.


To whoever said 'Davenport to Watford on loan, subject to agreement on wages.' i wouldn't think so as he is recovering from multiple stab wounds and it hasnt been confirmed whether he'll ever play football again.
a real rumour however is west ham could be taken over soon, with the return of Eggy. the former head of the Icelandic FA still holds west ham dearly in his heart and wants to save the cash strapped club.
expect west ham to lose some of their key british players in summer and january due to fifa's new ruling


Arsenal transfers:
January: out:
Senderos – 5m
Merida – LOAN move
In: Matuidi – 9m (signing in Jan as Song and Eboue heading to African Cup of Nations)
SUMMER: out:
Silvestre – FREE
Gallas – FREE (will not sign a new contract)
Almunia or Fabianski – 3m
Traore – 3m (knows he won't break into the 1st team ahead of Clichy and Gibbs at LB or Nasri/Arshavin)
Gilbert – 1m (now 21 and still in reserves)
Szczesny – LOAN MOVE
In: Green – 8m (top class keeper, english)
Sakho – 10m (has been best defender in France for a while, young, ideal replacement for Gallas)
Cahill or Zapata – 12m (if three defenders are outgoing, 2 need to come in, but there will be competition from Man Utd)
Hazard or Chamakh – 7m or free (question is whether 4–3–3 will endure next season, and whether arsene feels he needs additions. if bendtner starts to regularly find the net, may not need either, though Hazard is well worth it)
Lansbury – PROMOTED

tabs also being kept on Subotic, Keko, Agbonlahor, Young, Akinfeev and Cabaye.
Arsenal's homegrown quota will then include: Green, Shea, Gibbs, Walcott, Lansbury, Wilshere, Ramsey, Simpson, possibly Cahill.


Leeds united to sign albert adomah next week on loan with the option to make the deal perminant.


Davenport to Watford on loan, subject to agreement on wages.


Get on Wigan 6/1 odds to be relegated next game up Man City.
Also I like the look of Agbonlahor–Aston villa to finish top goalscorer in prem this season 66/1.
Rob Green to Manchester United in January is a real good rumour Ive heard from top sources. Arsenalboy


In January there will be some moves for arsenal;
Akinfeev– 12m (summer)
Puyol– pre contract
Guiza– 8m
Noble– 10m
Yohann Gorcuff is a slight possibility but as someone earlier mentioned he is madrid bound and i don't see arsenal paying above 15m.
Outs will be;
Almunia (summer)–2m
Silvestre (summer)–free
Diaby (summer)–7m


Lloyd dyer of Leicester City is a 1.2m transfer target for QPR

Can't reveal my sources!
