Liverpool have are ready to spend £13.5m on defensive reinforcements with Scott Dann £8m from Birmingham and Jose Enrique £5.5m from Newcastle expected to arrive. AC Milan are readying a bid of £8.7m for Alberto Aquilani. Emiliano Insua will join Roma in a deal worth £2.7m. Sotirios Krygiakos is a £1.5m target for Newcastle and will be allowed to leave if Liverpool can agree a deal for Scott Dann. Blackburn are planning a shock £3m move for Joe Cole. Liverpool want rid of a number of others such as Christian Poulsen,Nabil El Zhar and Philippe Degen but unfortunately there are not many interested parties. Liverpool are planning a big move before the end of August and Lille starlet Edin Hazard is the target an offer of around £23m will be made.Manchester United are still interested in and favorites to sign Wesley Sneijder but face surprise competition from Arsenal who have entered the race for the Dutchman's signature after agreeing to sell Samir Nasri to Manchester City for £25m. Cesc Fabregas could also be leaving the Emirates this summer and Wenger has put Fabregas into the CL squad trying to force Barcelona into making their move now rather than buying him in the dying minutes of the transfer window leaving Wenger no time to find a replacement. Chelsea will make one last ditch attempt to sign Luka Modric but from what I hear it will be in vein unless it is close to the £40m mark which is certainly wont be, Modric has been told he is staying put this year and will be allowed to leave next summer.Spurs are in talks to sign Lassana Diarra from Real Madrid but this deal hinges on whether or not Stoke will stump up £11m for Wilson Palacios.

West Ham interested in signing Kyle Lafferty from Rangers for £2 million. If they fail to sign him they will turn their attentions to Nicky Maynard and will offer £4 million plus add ons for him. West Ham are also close to agreeing a fee with Sunderland to sign George McCartney to end their long wait of signing a new Left Back



09 Aug 2011 19:26:56
West Ham are understood to have held talks with George McCartney over a possible return to the club.

The 30-year-old left back is currently out of favour at Sunderland, who paid West Ham £6.5million to take the Irish international to the Stadium of Light in 2008.

The Hammers are thought to be looking to take the defender - who spent two years at the Boleyn - back on loan, although a permanent deal remains a possibility.

Herita Ilunga - the club's only fully fit left-back at the moment, with youngster Jordan Brown currently sidelined through injury - made his first appearance for the first team in six months against Cardiff on Sunday.

However it was a game to forget for the Congolese defender, whose mistake led to Cardiff's 90th-minute winner - an error that is thought to have prompted Sam Allardyce to step up his search for a full back.

CRYSTAL PALACE are chasing Leicester City duo Paul Gallagher and Martyn Waghorn after they last week captured defender Alexsander Tunchev from the Foxes on a 28 day loan. Sven is prepared to allow Waghorn to move for a fee of around £750,000 or on a loan deal, but Gallagher is believed to be very much in the Swede's plans. Eagles manager Dougie Freedman is desperate to recruit more players after only 4 permanent signings over the summer which has seen Palace lose their first game of the season against Peterborough. The anxiety and discontent is starting to be shown from Palace supporters as their club look like they may continue to underachieve dramatically this season.

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

why would wolves loan out there 3rd choice st



09 Aug 2011 01:12:07
A couple of questions for the wolves fans.

Whats happning with E Banks Blake, has he lost his touch?, Why cant he cement a place a place in your team?....I used to follow him early in his career and in all fairness he was s@t hot, he was playing alongside Rossi for united reserves and in my opinion was the pick of the two of them, he had a nasty break which more or less put an end to his united career but i thought he got over that, he played well enough at plymouth for you to buy him and he was absalutly awsome in the champioship when you got promoted but the seemed to dissapear off thr radar.

David jones was another one, he was captain of that reserve side and was tipped for england, i didn't think you were thzt blessed with central midfielders to be able to give him away for nothing?
well E Banks Blake is not as good as Doyle or Fletcher
and dave jones isnt as good as O'Hara or millajas
