09 Jan 2013 21:05:15
Graham Dorrans has been offered a contract by Southampton after they had a £3.8m bid accepted, the club are looking to boss midfield options, Dorrans not sure if he wants to move to the south coast but the contract, as usual, is a lucrative one!

I can't see that happening to be honest. Not sure Southampton would be interested in Dorrans or West Brom would be happy to allow his departure for so little.

09 Jan 2013 21:01:26

Southend will let Elliot Benyon and John Spicer to free up wages for the Zimbabwean's signing.



09 Jan 2013 19:49:16
Watford now favourites to sign Bournemouth striker Wes Thomas

Ridiculous rumour - why would the Pozzos want him when they have far better already - No offence but we can do so much better {Ed003's Note - there is speculation about this.}

If Wes Thomas has not got the ability to fight for his place at afcb, then he might as well go. However eddie howe has the last say on the matter and expect eddie to have a good heart to heart with the striker. If a good offer comes in then we will see what happenns.

No chance, Watford have access to much better strikers for free



09 Jan 2013 19:36:33

09 Jan 2013 20:26:45
Bradford looking for more goals from midfield. Huddersfield winger Danny Ward on loan is one name been mentioned. They have a few wide players already but they've not provided goals this year.

Are you having a laugh, Danny ward is way to good for league two, isn't the complete package yet, a bit hit and miss but on his day he can tear a defence to shreds! Also when hamills loan ends ward and scanz will be our only wide men. NO truth at all



09 Jan 2013 20:12:26
Derby County have rejected a bid from Championship team Cardiff City. The bid was in the region of 1.5 million pounds I understand there were premier league appearance add ons involved too. {Ed013's Note - I presume this is for Hughes}

I believe it's for the right back Brayford



09 Jan 2013 20:11:57

paulo di canio is to become sheff wed manager in next 48 hrs !!!!...hillsborough is buzzing now with this news.....exactly what wednesday need....brilliant...d.i.canio..di canio

I spoke with the man yesterday and at that point he was so 100% committed to STFC he was emphatic about putting money into the club coffers to help pay for loan players wages. He was adamant about getting the club promoted, and very forth right about something special happening within his group of players. Very special time of unique quality he called it. Not the words of a quitter.



09 Jan 2013 20:04:47
Gary Hooper has been offered the chance to play in the Premier League from a number of clubs including Southampton, Reading and QPR but it's Norwich who are in pole position to sign the 24-year old striker from Celtic.

Garbage... if he comes to the premier it will be southampton- he stinking loves Atkins!

Isn't this the third transfer window that Hooper has been linked to Saints?

Doubt Celtic are interested in selling and Saints don't require a striker so just a regurgitated story from the summer I guess?



09 Jan 2013 20:08:25

09 Jan 2013 20:06:05

09 Jan 2013 19:24:42

09 Jan 2013 19:23:09
Reading have made Tom Huddlestone their priority target for January, for £4m. Rumours have been going around about Danny Welbeck, although this seems a little unlikely. As we're still targetting premiership experience, our short term targets are now:

Willians, 26, midfielder is set to join us on loan as has only played 3 times for udinese. He is blessed with pace and skill to replace Hogg. He will add to the attacking nature of football that Watford has.

Who is "us"?


Wow, if this is the willians from udinese im thinking, he's brilliant and could force his way into starting 11 of most prem teams.

Obviously Watford...

Cant see it, he is reported as saying that he wants to go to brazil to internacional de porto alegre



09 Jan 2013 17:25:43
Gillingham are looking to build their team ahead of the game against port vale.cody mcdonald is set to sign for gills on loan till the end of the season. Charlie mcdonald has been linked with a move to the gills but can't see this happening and sam saunders is been linked with the club. Sam has played with the likes of myles weston and leon legge and can be tempted to join the gills. Also wright deal looks like it not going to happen with vincelot and wagstaff being linked instead.

09 Jan 2013 17:44:48
Reading FC have bid accepted for Brighton striker Craig Mackail-Smith for a fee believed to be around 2million

I doubt 2m is the figure, when Norwich offered 3m+ not so long ago!

Reading get a nosebleed if they go above 2.5m ...their everso long standing transfer record bet it is 2m but what is likely to be wrong is that the bids been accepted...for sure

This rumour has come up for the last 3 transfer windows

Would like to see it but doubt itll happen and doubt brighton would sell their only solid striker.



09 Jan 2013 17:38:06
Stoke have apparently sold Kenwyne Jones to Swansea for £4m

Gillingham are set to bid for robbie findley from forest if they cannot land cody mcdonald on loan from coventry.also gills are said to be interested in scott wagstaff on loan and sam saunders. Robbie has been down the order at forest and is hoping to leave the club within this window.

Why would they sign him when he was not up to it when he was on loan

09 Jan 2013 20:27:22
He didn't really shine when he was on loan but he still a good player would have him back anyday he didn't really play loads when he was on loan tbh

10 Jan 2013 01:24:16
rob meant to be going back to usa.



09 Jan 2013 17:06:53
Birmingham will not be buying unless selling players. Jack Butland is the most likely to leave the club to ease some of the finances. Liverpool Everton Arsenal and Southampton looking the most likely destianations. As for the other players.

King: Reading or Cardiff 1mill
Burke: Nottingham Forest 1.75mill
Davies: Southampton 2mill.
Redmond: West Brom 4mill

Zigic is on the list to go but no club is willing to pay his 60,000 a week wages. His most probable destination is back to Spain

Southampton will not be looking into Birmingham to sign players. This is media drivel. Southampton are linked with so many random defenders and keepers without any real information for the media.

We need better than Curtis Davies.



09 Jan 2013 17:06:23

Fulham want Martin Stekelenburg
Norwich to sign Liam Bridcutt

Who the hell is karl henry?

Reading don't want Henry there are no links anywhere.

Reading won't sign Karl Henry because they are not interested in him and they have already signed two midfielders. Where did you get that from.

Why would west brom want Bertrand when we have two other good left backs?

We don't want henry lol



09 Jan 2013 16:09:25
mk dons have signed jermaine easter !!!!

And this will pave the way for Charlie macdonald to return to Kent with the gills

Mkdons also interested in signing 20 year old Jon Taylor from Shrewsbury. He is also being tracked by Sheffield United of league 1 and a whole host of Championship clubs. (confirms this on tv).

Possible deal. Maybe on loan but i doubt on a permanent deal.

OMG, what a silly post, no way would he be welcomed back.....gone off the boil for 2 years now and not as good as Mcleod



09 Jan 2013 16:07:53
curle going nowhere judgey going to forest so he can't leave on a free in summer.



09 Jan 2013 16:05:17
Mickey Adams in line for the Blackburn job as Brighton want too much compensation for Poyet. The other name is Sean O'Driscoll

Just fallen off my chair laughing! Gus would only move to a top half prem club, Micky Adams would be mad to go there, Championship is out of his league, he has failed there at every club he has been to, he is a good div 1 and 2 manager. O'Driscol would also be crazy, he is a good coach and the Venkys have made any managers job almost untenable from day 1. Sorry Blackburn i hope you get new owners soon, we've been there, its horrible. BHA fan.

09 Jan 2013 22:57:32
Micky Adams got Leicester promoted to the premier league when they were in admin didn't he? I'm sure he did.



09 Jan 2013 16:02:12
After signing Alfred N'Diaye Sunderlsnd hope to get Swedish playmaker currently at cska Moscow called Rasmus Elm signed.Bids for 2 young French midfielders are on the cards if the deal falls through.Tim Cahill is not been pursued now.
Also expect a deal for a loan for Chris Samba and Danny Welbeck.

Samba is getting first team at a russian club. the russian club has got eto'o and the club is rich. people say the russian man city, so i doubt he will join for a loan or even permanently. {Ed025's Note - his 100k a week would be a stumbling block as well..



09 Jan 2013 16:00:08

Hope they don`t want him to score goals or not be injured then as can do neither. Fingers crossed he goes and when can get in a striker who can



09 Jan 2013 15:53:38
Exeter and Plymouth will go head to head for Craig Westcarr's signature following his release from Chesterfield.

Westcarr is at walsall played recently for them last week against pompey

Walsall in pole position to sign Westcarr. Very welcome to him he goes missing and when you need a player to battle it won't be him

Because Westcarr was on loan to Walsall. His loan deal ran out, came home and released so now a free agent.

Walsall done deal

09 Jan 2013 22:20:00
plymouth no that was from craig westcarr him self (on twitter) think walsall where he will be going



09 Jan 2013 15:25:25
Heavy investment in BCFC from Mauritius. Expect a few signings in the next few days including Russell from Dundee.

Russell has openly said he want's to play for Celtic, he'd ruin his career if he moved to Bradford.

Which BCFC?



09 Jan 2013 14:55:51
Burnley to sign Matt Ritchie for 1.5M after having an offer accepted by Swindon

Ritchie is worth more than that to enhance our promotion push and his contract still has some time to go. When I spoke to him last Saturday he was emphatic that he was staying here under diCanio

Could well happen but I hope it don't

He would go for a lot less than 1.5 with the pressure on PDC to balance the books



09 Jan 2013 14:51:37

09 Jan 2013 14:24:39
I was just told that David Beckham is in London today, and is meeting with Q.P.R & Watford over possible 18 month deals?

Is this true? I remember Beckham saying that he would play for Watford for his mate Elton John in his final year, but I thought that was just a joke?

I'm a watford fan and I always viewed this as a joke...

if Elton currently owned watford then it would be a possibility but that is not the case.

Bekham was at man utd v whu game nd could sign for whu. not as a player. who else could help whu to wim the new stadium then one of england's finest, one of the embasiders? to try to win the 2022 world cup and someone who opened the 2012 olympics

That would be amazing, but it just can't happen, finances won't let it.

Might join QPR for enough cash
Will never join Watford

This is always a watford fantasy, a name like that at watford would be unbelievable, unfortunately that's all it will ever be, watford could never hit the wage demands

Highly unlikely, it's well known that he's relocating his family in London, but playing in Europe or further afield hasn't been taken off the cards despite this

As much as I'd like this to be true I highly doubt he would come to watford. But you never know!

This will not happen. we are all wishing



09 Jan 2013 14:17:06
Bristol rovers boss john ward looking to bring ex coventry star micheal mifsud back to england from maltese club valleta.

Scores goals that lad

He did for the first season at Coventry but the next two he was dog awful and had no commitment when there was news of a potential move to Premier/Serie A he gave up on CCFC. Then when he was close to signing for Bristol City he was greedy and wanted more money, so that was the end of that STAY WELL CLEAR



09 Jan 2013 14:13:09
Bristol city's john stead close to agreeing terms to join barnsley after losing striker davis

Chris Porter to Plymouth on loan.

Where have you heard this?

Also chris Dickson formally of charlton now playing in Malta is on his way {Ed003's Note - was it a team in Malta he went to ?}

He plays for Limossol in Cyprus

oldham set to make an offer for MK dons ryan lowe who is keen on a move back up north.

Cant see him leaving, 5 goals in six games

Yeah okay then... offer alot you can have him haha

No way. He's on form at the minute

Would rather have Matty Derbyshire as his work rate far better.

Southampton made a bid (unknown) for Bologna danish df Sorensen, according to Sky Italy. Bologna already turned down

Would be a good signing but not surprising they turned it down. I imagine he'd cost a fair bit.

Why would saints want him at that age. think you must have made this up.

How is Fergies relationship with Safc these days? Im not sure he would allow it. Maybe he will go to Hull?

Fleetwood Town will bid £45,000 for York City striker Jason Walker who is out of contract in the summer and I have heard will not sign a new contract

Strange as he recently stated he wanted to stay at York as his family now live here...

Failed to win promotion with luton 10/11 season then opted to come to york where he won promotion to the football league!
jason walker is 110% happy at york!
45,000 is peanuts as he cost york 60,000.

09 Jan 2013 19:54:08
we need strikers at york so unless anyone bids six figures then jason will be going no where as he cost york 60,000.
plus as stated he and his family have settled in at york.

Love him to come to doncaster



09 Jan 2013 13:47:18
Rumours abound that Harry Redknapp is thinking of taking a gamble on Kevin Doyle from Wolves, a hardworking type which appeals to Harry and could be available very cheap from Wolves in their current predicament.

What predicament is that exactly ? a new manager ?

Why would he be cheap because Wolves are struggling? That would make them want to keep him even more, meaning they would have to offer even more



09 Jan 2013 13:38:16
Experienced defender Guy Branston 34, is set to sign a deal at Rochdale untill the end of the season. With Rochdale currently in bad form and in need of quick defensive solutions, Branston is an ideal choice for John Coleman.

Will help them get out of a pickle?

Charlton have offered £300,000 for Colchester pair Wordsworth and Henderson.

Could see Charlton getting Wordsworth, but not sure they would want Henderson.

300,000 for the pair would be no where near enough, i think 300,000 and bwp would be a good offer

Take it! Wouldn't mind Sullivan back at Colchester either

Wud be gud signing for us lacking creativity in midfield. Hope mr. powell wil sign a striker or 2 also lacking goals, naki wells of bradford would be great or dj cambell

I've heard 250k for wordsworth but thats the first I have heard about Henderson



09 Jan 2013 12:29:21

Walcott & a fit Diaby? That will be the extent of our activities this January and they will be classed as two major signings!

Any ideas who?

Wolves will make a bid for striker Nakhi Wells after impressing new manager Dean Saunders whilst watching the striker play against Aston Villa.

Saunders did say today that he is after a striker, but it is anybody's guess who it is.

Cheltenham interested in Danny Hylton of Aldershot as well as Benson and Flint from Swindon



09 Jan 2013 12:54:36
Blackpool have accepted offers from both St Mirren and Motherwell to take Scotland international, Barry Ferguson, back to the SPL.

As he has already played for Blackpool & Fleetwood this season he couldn't play for a Scottish team. A FIFA rule that has stung Motherwell before when they tried to sign Grella from Leeds. Ferguson could move only to another English club.

09 Jan 2013 12:37:10
Southampton are very much having talks with Hungarian centre back Roland Juhsz from Belgian champions Anderlect

Although 29 he brings alot of experience and could be what saints need to fill the whole in defence.

I for one hope this happens

Sunderland, sorry

If we go for experience we may as well go for proven prem players, like Dawson, not sure how old astori is but want him too!

Astori has recently turned 26. He is a great talent and would probably be enough to damage clubs around us' chance of survival.



09 Jan 2013 11:51:04
Ed003 anything regarding Ince ?
Macca from liverpool rumours reckons a deal has been done. {Ed003's Note - I have got nothing new}

Only will be done if Liverpool agree to what K.oyston wants. I think he has had enough of dealing with liverpool after the Charlie Adam fiasco that ended up costing Blackpool their top flight status. We will see but I believe he wants a clear 6 million after paying all the fees involved.



09 Jan 2013 12:10:13
Peter Crouch is set to sign a £5m deal with Norwich City later this week

Unlikely, his wages would be the stumbling block...



09 Jan 2013 12:08:31
Gillingham are poised to sign MK Dons' Charlie McDonald on loan after the Bucks club brought in Izale McLeod and McDonald fell further down the pecking order. This move would pave the way for Danny Kedwell to join Blue Square Premier playoff hopefuls Dartford. Dartford's Conference rivals Luton, and Kedwell's former club Wimbledon are also interested in bringing in the forward on loan until the end of the season.

09 Jan 2013 17:38:57
Kedwell isnt going anywhere, let alone Dartford. There has been a lot of interest in the Gills striker, the only place Keds is going is division 1 with the Gills

Former AFC Wimbledon left back, Chris Hussey, has been released by Coventry City after just one start this season, paving the way for a free transfer move (BBC). AFC Wimbledon rumoured to be monitoring the pacey wide man's situation. Regular first team football during the league two side's survival battle could be deemed an exciting prospect to reignite his career, for the Wimbledon fan's favourite.


macdonald is 32 and no better an option now than kedwell, he turned down gillingham several times in his younger days always thinking he was bigger and better than us and commented as such at the time, so no way do we want him taking a nice retirement fund from us

clear off back to ebsfleet

It does look like cody though the gills want to buy rather than loan him. Also an austrian forward is joining on trial

McDonald rumour sounds true, but I do not think Kedwell would drop down a level. Easily good enough to play at L2-would happily take him as a Barnet fan

Lots of rumours that MacDonald is going to Gillingham. Contract at MK Dons finishes this summer so going on loan would seem to make sense.

Danny Kedwell is not going anywhere! Listen to Martin Allen on from 11 on saturday night and the press conference from last thursday! Charlie MacDonald is not on Gillingham's radar. The club are getting players in to smash League One next season! Wont be hanging round!

Kedwell wouldn't go barnet if he was to leave, which he isn't because he is our legend at AfcW

Tom rogic snubs Reading FC to join Celtic in trial



09 Jan 2013 11:56:03
Reliable sources close to club inform me that Luton manager Paul Buckle is currently looking at the following two centre backs.

Aden Flint - Swindon (Loan till end of season)
Nathan Pond - Fleetwood (Permenant)

Buckle has made it clear that a centre back is his number one priority for the Jan transfer window and see both players as ideal because have experience of Non League.

I don't think flint, no disrespect to Luton would drop down to the conference. It's not in his or swindons interest he plays at that level

Flint is a good Lge 1 player and would get in most Lge 1 teams its just Ward and Devera have been faultless recently also Arch-Hen has just had knee surgery.

09 Jan 2013 19:48:18
Flint is not going anywhere with TA-H and McCeverly both out injured, that leaves Flint as the only cover.

Pond told me himself there is no truth in the Luton rumour . He wants a fair crack with the new manager at fleetwood . If that doesn't work out he's going back to grimsby till end of season .



09 Jan 2013 11:55:49
Graham Westley has been to Barnsley and had an interview
This is 100% fact. Coach at PNE confirmed it

09 Jan 2013 14:08:43
Can' t believe this but I hope it is true and Preston also get some compensation for him.

And by the way ELVIS is at Preston

Load of rubbish no press conference 70 applicants for job and Terry butcher not up to keeping us up imo plenty of better managers out there who don't have jobs why pay compensation for an un proven manager in the championship

3 more names linked with barnsley paul jewel, peter reid, and rumour has it that roy keane may be interested supprised if true

Have a soft spot for Barnsley (sunderland fan) hope this is not true Westley is out of his depth at league 1 level

Looks like this is true another 3 days wasted on another manager that doesnt want the job



09 Jan 2013 11:53:38
Apparently, Mike Ashley has given Alan Pardew £10 million according to a inside source to spend on a attacking player to replace Demba Ba, Pardew is looking to trigger Wellington Nem and Diame's release clause and is prepared to offer up to £30,000 in wages a week to both players including add ons.

Since Diame is already earning 45K a week I wish AP luck with that effort !



09 Jan 2013 11:51:24
Craig Beattie is training with Notts County and could sign a deal by the end of the week maybe start of next week. No news if the deal is short or long term but is almost a done deal. Personal terms need to be discussed.

I saw Chris Iwelumo at Bristol Parkway station early this morning getting into a private car, could it be Rovers new target man



09 Jan 2013 11:44:26
Swansea striker Danny Graham looks set to move back 'home' to Newcastle.

Graham a boyhood Newcastle fan has been earmarked as the replacement for Demba Ba and will only cost around 5 million pounds.

I think they'll only let him go if they have a replacement lined up, which they don't appear to have. Aspas won't move until the summer. Kenwyne jones been mentioned but they'd be better off keeping graham. Swans don't have to sell as he's still got a few years left on contract. If they do sell I think they'll hold out for far more than 5 m.



09 Jan 2013 11:41:36
Portsmouth ownership battle rages on with a new bidder on the table. An American group have come to the table and are looking to purchase the club outright and wipe out all the debts run up by previous owners.

They have already spoken to the FL and administrators PKF. This would explain why there has been no news on the takeover front in the last two weeks. Internally the PST are shocked to hear this but are willingly to work with the group to try and get control of the club.

Not true at all. Its either PST or bust

Where did you here this no one is interested apart from the trust silly rumour to make



09 Jan 2013 10:55:39
hi ed cardiff city fan here, any news going on with jerome or sordell? {Ed025's Note - not yet mate..

Sunderland to bid £2.5m for brad potts of Carlisle then loan him bk for next season

I'd take that but 2.5 mil seems a bit much Greg still probably won't get a penny of that



09 Jan 2013 11:33:36
Tranmere are interested in taking Nathan Tyson on loan from Derby County

I think this could be true. however i feel we would look to offload full time if we were to depart with nathen

I hope it is true, it would be a good edition to an ever improving squad



09 Jan 2013 11:30:14
So Arsenal charge £62 for the away fans and City send back 100's of tickets as it is also on telly, well i would not pay £62 to watch a game even if not on telly, as far as i am concerned it is a total Rip Off and well done City fans for not paying it.

I went to City as an away fan this season and paid 51.

Same as the man utd vs west ham CUP game 49 on the telly after we charged them 20/25



09 Jan 2013 11:29:51
Sam Sodje looks set to sign for Portsmouth as the inevitable departure of Gabor Gyepes look set to go through this month, after having a clause in his contract that he can leave should another club come in for his services.

He signed on for a month the day before yesterday, he will only leave if his contract runs out. The Sodje part might be true, but it will probably be another player leaving. Not Gyepes



09 Jan 2013 11:27:11
Once the Portsmouth Supporters Trust take control at Fratton Park they will look to appoint a new manager. The PST are not going to show any faith in Guy Whittingham and Andy Awford after a poor run of form has seen no win in 13 games.

The PST have already held talks with Paul Ince, Steve Cotterill and Micky Mellon.

Micky Mellon looks the favourite after being seen at Fratton Park for the last two games and has recently just left Fleetwood Town. Mellon would not command the wages of either Cotterill or Ince and has worked with a smaller budget before.

Mickey Mellon not been seen at Pompey because he, s been at Barnsley as assistant to Flitcroft FACT
Wombwell Red

Rubbish! There is still a question mark over whether the PST can even afford to take over, no position to talk to anybody about managers job.

Portsmouth are set to sign Jon McLaughlin on loan from Bradford. Portsmouth are set to have a goalkeeping crisis as Simon Eastwood looks set to leave with Crawley Town interested in the stopper.

Why would we loose are reserve keeper and have no back up?

Nothing wrong with Jones - we don't need another stopper!



09 Jan 2013 11:19:48
Leeds are using Ryan Hall as bait to complete the George Boyd deal. Warnock has offered Hall on loan to try an complete a deal as the two clubs are failing to agree a transfer fee at the moment.

Well thats shot that deal in the foot

I don't think thats true Posh we're desperate to offload and we Ipswich had an offer as low as 350k for him it was he's wage demands that broke the deal.

Official howson back to Leeds on loan and Makail smith by the weekend, no bs**T have extremely reliable source in leeds utd



09 Jan 2013 11:17:48
Pompey are looking into signing a new goalkeeper after it was reported that Phil Smith will be leaving the club following cost cutting issues.

Portsmouth are looking to take a goalkeeper on loan and have been alerted to the news that David James could be available.

James would relish the chance to go back to Fratton Park.

James couldn't wait to get away from Portsmouth. And will not be leaving Bournemouth

Complete tosh. How on earth would David James cost less than Phil Smith ?

Im a Pompey fan i don't feel he will leave Bournemouth YET but that is a complete lie in saying he couldn't wait to leave Portsmouth !!

David James paid the wages of our team for two months the first time we went into administration, I don't think the wages are his priority, so I think the only thing stopping this move is the fact he probably wouldn't leave Bournemouth, but I would love him back. He is a true legend!



09 Jan 2013 11:14:00
Leeds United midfielder Ryan Hall is set to go on loan to Peterborough United

Don't think so, it's another striker we need now but good ones are at a premium.

They have only just signed him !



09 Jan 2013 10:50:40
Bristol City made an initial bid of £150k for Kilmarnock midfielder Liam Kelly which was turned down. Killy want to keep him and are holding out for £500k.
The player is believed to want a move back to England for family reasons so expect a deal to be done at around £250k (second bid happening today)

Another quality signing from North of the Border ! Dont get me wrong cus I do admire some scottish players but there is a almost a desire of young scottish managers to bring guys south from their experience in the Scottish league rather than scout FA League talent down south. Guys rarely live up to performance expectation. ie: Clarkson is now struggling to find a 2nd Div club to play for. Has McInnes not learnt from previous Scottish managers mistakes ?

Let's hope city land him, having got rid of Woolford they should have banked at least 50 !

Fee agreed for 200K



09 Jan 2013 10:50:02
Leeds are set to bid for QPR striker DJ Campbell. Warnock keen to bolster his front line and sees the guy he signed for Blackpool as QPR manager the player to help aid United promotion push.

DJ won't go to leeds, he wants to be near London so its Ipswich or Palace

Doubt it.. they reckon he's off to hudds



09 Jan 2013 10:48:28
Colchester have been linked with striker Chris Zebroski after his release from Cheltnham.

This is bloody nonsense

You won't be saying that when he signs

Yep, complete nonsense. No idea why Colchester, who need a goalscorer, would sign a bloke who has struggled to score at League 2 level for the last couple of season and has just been released by a League 2 club.



09 Jan 2013 10:40:33
Crawley and Rotherham are looking to make atfc's Hylton their player Steve evens is a long term admirer

forest to sign frank lampard

Frank Lampard Senior presumably?



09 Jan 2013 10:38:16
Lewis Dunk from Brighton is thought to be interesting Ipswich with a £1 million deal likely. The 21 year-old is out of favour at the Amex and has well publicised problems off the pitch in the Brighton area and a frsh start is what he wants.

He is not leaving

Brighton has asked a fee of 2.5 mill for Dunk.Big mick will not pay this money so is looking elsewhere.Also Henderson is now possible to sign full time on 4year contrac, t as west ham are signing Robinson .it is also possible Chops will be loaned out as we now have far better options.The duke will have his contract paid up and also Orr will sign a 2 and half year contract within the next few days.

What a signing that would be. Unfortunately, I can't see it happening until we push up to mid-table. COYB!

Dunk has only had 8 appearances this season and is out of contract at the end of the season so there is no way you could get 2.5 million for him, 1 million is a great deal for someone who could go for nothing in the summer!



09 Jan 2013 10:33:44
Due to the Udinese connection, Luis Muriel is likely to be loaned out to Watford for the rest of the season, with a view to a permanent move. After only starting 3 games this season, the Pozzos are keen to provide competition for forestieri and allow Muriel to further his career

No chance, he just signed a 5 year deal with Udinese, is't he already on loan to that Spanish club they own?

09 Jan 2013 12:51:39
Watford all ready have four forwards fighting for two places and all on good form so there would be no need to get another forward in.

No, him and the club have both stated that he's staying. "He will not go in January or the summer for that matter" "he's our young star!" - not going to happen

Watford would beat udinese



09 Jan 2013 10:28:34
Leeds to sign nahki wells from Bradford with Andy grey going in the other direction

Nonsense! Wishful thinking from Leeds me thinks!

Half of that rumour is correct .. but Wells ain't going to Leeds

Andy Gray as signed. In local paper.

Andy gray has signed today, so this could vey well be true! i hope it isnt but we all know that parkinson is an admirer of gray!

stoke are set to sign steve morison from norwich for 3, 2 mill ...

Take him he's useless

Please take him off our hands

One can hope!

Swap for Crouch perhaps?

At least we'd be improving our squad

Only if we get Hooper or Graham etc...

Soon forget how well he played last season ?? hardly lazy he's a striker watch a game of football and keep your eye on the sticker !!

Stoke will not make this much of a mistake for that much money

A striker needs to play week in week out to get the best out of themselves morrison can do a job for norwich of that im sure

In this seasons system i think stoke play better with jones who holds the ball better than crouch. so plain and simple sell crouch .play jones 60 to 70 mins then jerome or ?

Derby county to sign Lewis dunk in the summer if no-one buys him in January.Clough is looking for players
who are out of contract and is using Sam rush to work with the players at sorting a deal.

He will go to Ipswich as he's a local Sussex lad, and Ipswich would be a more attractive move under MM and he stays down south of england

Ipswich have been linked with move in this window

I think a choice beetween Derby county and ipswitch town there is only one winner. if derby want him they will get him



09 Jan 2013 10:17:57
Huddersfield have supposedly tabled a £1.25 million bid for Bradford striker nakhi wells (from a Bradford fan)

Can't see Bradford selling while they are still in the league cup and 1.25 is way too high for a player from league 2 with half a season to show his skills.

Looked good against premier opposition last night. Suspect he will fancy his day at Wembley later this year though?

1.25 million for wells, thats a joke right, yes he has talent but he's had one decent season on League 2. and Huddersfield have not shown any interest at all

Lot of money for an unproven div 2 striker, big jump to championship, but one to keep an eye on.

Well that was a lie. 100% false. City signed Andy Gray.

Town have put that bid in but may well be letting him stay on loan at bradford until end of season

Bantams have signed Andy Gray from Leeds, maybe this paves the way to cash in on Wells? {Ed025's Note - oil wells?.. :)

Hope so but i heard that it was 600.000

I hardly think the terriers would pay 1.25 million for a player and then loan him out for half a season, that makes no sense at all



09 Jan 2013 10:17:54
Doncaster Rovers are in talks with Paul Ince over the vacant manager job at the Keepmoat Stadium and a deal could be done before the trip to Stevenage.

Andy bishop's contract to be terminated at Bury.
Bishop has been linked with a move back to Wrexham and is keen to go.

What has happened to Bishop? A few years ago he was one of the better strikers in the lower leagues?

This is not the case.
I am told that Bishop will form a strike force with Jon Shaw at Luton. Alan Knill once dreamed of that line up and now my luton friends tell me it is on the cards.

He is always injured so it may be time to part company.



09 Jan 2013 10:06:37
Gera out for season means West Brom will pay the 6 million for N.Redmond of Birmingham City.

Dorrans is still going to be joining another club even with the Gera situation as West Brom have replacements for Dorrans and have been planning the move for some time.

Redmond can't even get into a sub-standard championship team so I think the likelihood of him going to WBA is slim.We already have El Ghanassy who is also quick, tricky and doesn't know how to track back and we can get him for 2M in the summer, so Redmond is a total non starter despite his undoubted potential.

Redmond is not worth close to 6m, let alone with Brum's financial issues

We don't pay 6million for anyone let alone someone untested

Would be a class signing forget the sinking ship the future is bright it's blue and white.

Would be a good signing but we won't pay 6 mill for anyone, with blues troubles we would offer half that.

09 Jan 2013 20:06:39
Don't go for him then lads. We'll sell him to another club with a few bob

Jason Scotland or Jamie Cureton to sign for Bristol Rovers today, Cureton would be for 80k from exeter on a 1 yr deal with option of 2nd year player coach

if that falls through then Scotland will come on loan till end of season,

A central Defender will also sign today

Cheers from the Son of Higgs

09 Jan 2013 14:28:36
Chris Iwelumo apparently sighted at Bristol Parkway in last 24hrs ? Jason Scotland would be great but hasnt really been firing on all four cylinders for a while. Maybe this is what he needs to revitalise his form.

09 Jan 2013 14:59:08
I would love to see JC back at the men I hope its him who signs as we need his goals.



09 Jan 2013 09:58:42
Southampton are very close to agreeing a deal for Douglas from FC Twente for around 5 mil. Also rumoured is ter stegen from Borussia Monchengladbach for around 6 mil + Boruc

Douglas is out of contract in July, no way would we pay 5mil

Would be good as long as it doesn't effect the 2 deals we are all currently talking about

I reckon If we get Douglas it will be for less than 5 mill, anyone can get him tied down now for next season for free, can't see anyone paying 5 mill

I am living here in Germany and Ter Stegs won't be going to Southampton. There is 0% chance thats going to happen. He has stated he needs to stay in Germany for the short future.
Im a saints fan by the way and im not german either

6 mil + Boruc for Ter stegen would be a great deal!! can't see it myself.........

Those fees seem very low even with boruc who can't be worth more than 2mill. Douglas would only be 5mill if we threw in Jos and DeRidder which would actually be fairly good business.

Recent comments from Ter Stegen seems to suggest that he is not moving, possibly in the summer but with clubs like Real Madrid sniffing around I think this is going to be a struggle for us!

Douglas will probably go for less than 5 million. His contract runs out very soon and Twente otherwise may loose him for free. 3 million would almost definitely be accepted.

Douglas is a complicated transfer because 3 parties including Douglas get a slice of the transfer fee which leaves Twente with a tiny fee. If he and others are prepared to compromise then maybe it'll happen, but certainly not for 5 million.

Boruc's contract runs out at the end of the season. Why would a team bother
buying him or using him in part of a swap when they can just negotiate a contract with him right now and take him for nothing at the end of the season?

port vale are making inroads regards incomings, with Daniel kearns from Peterborough, Aaron Wilbraham from crystal palace, Chris Iwelumo from Watford and they are also trying to hijack a deal for Matt Tubbs from Bournemouth who looks to be joining Rotherham...OR MAYBE NOT.

Matt tubbs not leaving the cherries, boss eddie howe has already said he wants to keep him

Where did this rumour come from

Tubbs as already stated that if he left Bournemouth the only league 2 club he would sign for is Rotherham, Danny kearns is also joining Rotherham

Any reall truth in the willbraham story ?

Dont need another forward we have pope hughes dodds n williamson we need another center back and a left back

Kearnes joins Rotherham

Leeds United are in talks with Norwich City to re-sign Johnny Howson on loan with a view to a permentant deal. Also Warnock rumoured to be intrested in Simeon Jackson.

Take em both only bit part players or as others call em sub bench warmers...

Simeon Jackson yes howson no no

Aha...Good one! So your still sad Jonny Howson signed for us eh? :D

Will not happen. Howson will be the first name on the team sheet and pushing for an England place in 2 years time.

Dream on. No chance.

No Leeds fans anywhere is 'sad' Howson signed for Norwich. For 2mil, I'd drive him there myself. He's a great lad and a Leeds fan but, bless him, he was never the most combative midfield player. We mugged you off to get you back for BJ. Good luck selling him on, cos Warnock don't want him.

Notts County in talks with Derby County over signing Conor Doyle on loan for the rest of the season with the view to a permanent deal!

I'm sure he is out of contract in the summer so would make sense...never really shown he can do it at this level so league 1 might do him the world of good



09 Jan 2013 09:29:06
Rumours still going around about danny graham departure, surely not another manager to tell porkies! Norwich, and reading ready to pounce, though west brom and Newcastle in pole position

Lots of reports of danny welbeck to reading!

I would be very suprised but impressed if reading could get there hands on Welbeck

Ipswich to sign Lewis Dunk from Brighton as his contract is running down and McCarthy needs another centre back

I hope this happens. I've only heard good things about his ability.

Deffo on the cards with this Dunk link, Mick won't be hanging around with this, if its on and the offer is accepted then It'll be done and dusted very quickly,

I highly doubt gus will let him go that cheap(if at all).


Gus said that his players are no longer cheap as they have had bad experiences with letting players go cheaply

Everton FC set to sign Huddersfield Town play-off hero Alex Smithies

Hope so, can't see it though.

No they're not - he would need to be Premiership quality and quite frankly he's not at the moment.

09 Jan 2013 21:22:18
Hope this is true. Extremely poor goalkeeper. I would personally pay his bus fair to get there. He is so inconsistent and cannot make a decision by himself. Time for a proper keeper to play for us.



09 Jan 2013 08:22:09
Bristol City are preparing to table a bid for inspirational Crawley defender Kyle McFadzean

He has a three year contract. They would have to stump up over a million do you really believe that will happen ?

No chance, won't go there

Be a shame to see him go.. But joe Walsh looks like a top player.

He has 1 year left on his contract not 3

millwall after bristol city striker ryan taylor (the ginger prince)

You can have him nothing but useless. He can't score just holds the ball up and passes backwards instead of going for goal. We have got Davies, Baldock and Stead what more could we need. Attacking midfielder, Holding midfielder, two new center backs and a right back

Im surprised that KJ is trying to sign him again!Especially after the way he treated us last time!Still we trust in KJ!

U can keep him he's proper thing he ever done was joining Bristol city!!

Just signed Martyn Woolford from bristol city any good? remember him tearing us apart in playoff final for Scunthorpe few years back ..

That was a cover story to get woolford to provide left wing crosses as Adam Smith will be heading back to Spuds at end of Jan. Striker wise I think KJ is looking else where. Although it did appear in that highly rated spreadsheet The S*n

09 Jan 2013 15:31:25
apparently Millwall have signed Woolford today, this is perhaps what they were on about.

Funny Adam smith providing left wing crosses as a full back ...!!!

Huddersfield town to sign Manchester United striker maceda on season long loan

Not on his wages we're not

Ulloa transfer now considered highly unlikely by Club within transfer window.Club now looking at Plan be which is to retain all key playing staff and look to bring in loan signing (striker) in final week of January IF the Club is well positioned for the play offs at that stage. Financial control and prudence now order of the day. So no real fuel for fans this window I'm afraid. Source - within Club

Middlesbrough in prime position to sign Jermaine Jenas from Spurs if young Josh McEachran is recalled by Chelsea

Forest have sent him back to Spurs and did not extend his loan because he is injured again!

Josh aint going no were! Bailey is better than jenas to injuryprone

Yes josh aint goin back and any boro good boro news and well said who eva said he was is not a boro fan mogga said after the last game he's 99.9 so 4 me he's staying.

It won't happen

This won't happen. Jenas is on 50k a week. Nicky Bailey will sign a new deal in summer.



09 Jan 2013 03:42:12
Crystal Palace are looking at Jamie Crellin from Hastings United as cover for Dikagcoi. Crellin impressed during their FA Cup run and looks to be a hot prospect.



09 Jan 2013 03:41:23
Crystal Palace are in talks with Lewis Dunk from Brighton. Dunk is not getting into the side and will strengthen the Eagles back four

Dunk is a Brighton fan when he was young

Dunk couldn't strenghen any back four

Definately will not happen

Lol, yeah ok.

Marvin Emmes would be a fantastic signing for Brighton, a goal scorer and a creator, but he must be woth 4-5M BHA couild not afford him. Unless CMS goes the other way?



09 Jan 2013 03:35:56
Crystal Palace are set to sign Marlon Harewood and Matt Done from Barnsley for 1.5m with Easter going in the other direction

This about done and harewood must be tripe.... Northern thing look it up kids.... 1.5 million palace clearly have too much money and no idea how to spend it if they want two players who have barely featured for us all season and we are bottom o league

09 jan 2013 12:48:10
cant believe this.....why would palace want harewood? better than easter!

Done, perhaps? But Harewood! No way, shocking player. As a Palace fan, 1.5 million too? Done's out of contract in summer, so what Harewood's worth a million? Do me a favour. Absolute rubbish.

I wish. There not worth anything close to that. Il drive them myself for that! Wishful thinking
