Wolves 2011 Transfer plans:
After fighting off relegation (they will do with an away victory against Sunderland) Wolves plan to solidify there Premier league status for the next season by investing in quality rather than a great quantity of players.

McCarthy feels he has the forwards to bang in enough goals. Fletcher has the 5th best goals per minute in the league and Doyle is a superb player. So he will focus on the midfield and defence in order to allow them to link up.

In -
Wilson Palacios + Jamie O'Hara = 8 million
This will boulster the midfield and allow McCarthy to play 3 men in the middle.

Madjid Bougherra = 4 million
Strong, pacey centerhalf whos club can't ask for a huge fee due to contract issues. Will add the steel required to Wolves' backline.

Cheikh M'Bengue = 3.5 million
Has been replaced by Franck Tabanou and is aggressive, strong and quick enough for the premier league

Kyle Bartley = Loan
Talented Arsenal youngster will challenge Stearman and Berra to start opposite Bougherra.

Matt Jarvis = 9 million (Liverpool)
Jody Craddock = Retire
Dave Jones = Free

GK: Hennessey

RB: Foley
CB: Bougherra
CB: Berra
LB: M'Bengue

DM: Henry
DM: Palacios

AM: O'Hara
AM: Hunt

CF: Doyle
CF: Fletcher

09 May 2011 18:25:15
Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is considering using Brazil star Kaka as bait to lure Chelsea's Frank Lampard to the Bernabeu.

Mourinho wants to make a £10m bid for Blues striker Didier Drogba - but the Ivory Coast hitman is unsure whether to leave Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are in talks with Ajax over Dutch full-back Gregory van der Wiel and Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen, who starred against England in February.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp may sell Rafael Van der Vaart in the summer because the Dutchman's lack of mobility places restrictions on the team's formation.

Aston Villa assistant manager Gary McAllister says the club must work hard to keep hold of England winger Stewart Downing, amid rumoured interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson continues to target Inter Milan's £30m Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder - and has urged his club's owners, the Glazer family, to bankroll the deal.

Italian striker Federico Macheda may be allowed to leave Old Trafford in the summer, with Sampdoria keen to make his loan deal permanent.

Arsenal remain interested in Everton left-back Leighton Baines, who could be a replacement for one or both of Gael Clichy and Kieran Gibbs if contract talks with the pair are not settled.

The Gunners are chasing £15m-rated German wonderkid Mario Goetze after rave reviews from Arsene Wenger's German scout. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder could be a replacement for Samir Nasri if the Frenchman fails to agree terms on a new deal.

Spurs are lining up a new bid for Newcastle midfielder Cheik Tiote - but hope to fare better than they did with their January approach by offering Wilson Palacios in part-exchange.

Aston Villa keeper Brad Friedel could be a target for Midlands rivals West Brom after Baggies' stopper Scott Carson and understudy Boaz Myhill failed to impress new manager Roy Hodgson.

Villa boss Gerard Houllier has been given the green light to plan for next season, with former Liverpool defender John Arne Riise among his top targets.

Clichy is going to be leaving Arsenal this summer, along with Gibbs. Neither are what we are looking for, and Gibbs isn't the next "ashely cole" we were hoping for. Our interests are with Baines from Everton.

Rumours of Arsene trying to get Samba in the summer won't happen. Wenger has expressed and hinted towards Cahill, Bolton signed Wether; so a possible sign Cahill is looking for a new club come summer.

Sakho is a minimal chance, his asking price is too high, and other clubs are in competition for the young CB.

Arsene has undergone inquiry about Karim Benzema. Karim coming to Arsenal and Clichy going to madrid + a few million. Real value Clichy at 12-15 mill (i know! :-/) Benzema would be a dream to come to Arsenal, and a great partner for RVP. Slim chances though.

Bendtner won't be guarenteed 1st team football. And Chamakh may be on the way to QPR for a 10-13 million

Falcao won't come to Arsenal. If anything, he'd be a flop like Dzeko.

Wenger is expressing interest in Pjanic (OL) and Goetze (Bundesliga). Hazard talks seem to have called off, with Liverpool apparently offering 25 million.

Nasri won't leave, he will stay another year for sure. (but anything can happen!)

Fabregas will be leaving, he wants to go back to Barca, but I can see Chelsea or Real Madrid making a few offers.

Arsenal NEED a new SPINE to the team.

I can see these leaving:

And in:
Cahill / Mertesaker
Benzema ( slim chance )

As far as a big commanding midfielder ( Like Yaya Toure / Khedira / Gerrard ) etc, I don't know. Inler would be the dream imo, or Gourcuff, but i'm sure Arsene will sort it out. Ramsey is Fabregas' replacement.

And get Miyachi his work permit!

Expect Newcastle to be the most active team in the transfer window with graham carr scouting all over europe and reccomending some quality players such as Marvin Martin, Cheick M'bengue, Emmanuel Riviere, Georginio Wijnaldum, Leroy Fer the list goes on. This is a quality but realistic transfer plan for newcastle this summer. Newcastle are looking to bring young quality players into the team but also want the players to have experience and have around 50-100 or more appearances for there clubs. Newcastle will also certainly be looking in the lower leagues to try and get some real bargains.

Steve Cotterill has given the Pompey board 2 weeks to either confirm what his transfer budget will be for 2011/2012, or he is likely to resign as manager.

If no funding is made available, Steve feels he would be given an impossible task to build a competitive Pompey side and he is not prepared to risk tarnishing his reputation on a side which he feels may well be relegation candidates next season.

He doesn't blame David Lampitt for the current situation; instead, he lays the blame squarely at the feet of Balram Chanrai.

Steve is also highly doubtful of the sale of the club to Russian businessman Vladimir Antonov. He says that he has not been given a single word that the takeover is likely to happen anytime before the start of next season.

There is a very slim chance of him coming. Positives would be that he is a Liverpool fan and great mates with Maxi.
Negatives - Liverpool will struggle to play 30mil and the £200,000 wage. Also why would he join if he rejected Manu and Chelsea (the best clubs in the country at the moment)
So there is a slim chance but unlikely (stranger things have happened though)

09 May 2011 03:59:26
Bristol City are planning to add two defenders, two midfielder's and a striker to their squad over the summer.

Keith Millen is already planning some arrivals and departures, with Ivan Sproule, Louis Carey, John Akinde & Stephen Henderson all expecting to leave the club on free transfers.

Millen is also likely to transfer list Nicky Hunt, David Clarkson, Lee Johnson & Christian Ribeiro in an attempt to free up funds and reduce the clubs wage bill.

The club also are expected to announce that Nicky Maynard will sign a 2 year extension which will see him contracted until 2014, whilst David James is another who has triggered a further year with the club.

Want away midfielder Marvin Elliott is expected to sign a deal with Wigan Athletic worth 1.5m if they are relegated from the Premiership whilst Albert Adomah could be another in popular demand. Leicester City & Reading are just two of a number of clubs chasing the winger, with a price tag of around 2m expected to secure a deal.

Millen will be hoping to secure the signatures of Billy Jones, Jordan Spence & Richard Hughes over the next couple of weeks on free transfers. Hughes who hasn't played recently for Portsmouth has been left out of games due to a contract clause which would mean a wage increase if he had another first team appearance. He has recently turned down a 1 year extension with Portsmouth, in favour of a 2 year deal with Bristol City. The experienced midfielder who can play in the centre or on the left is being eyed up as a replacement for Marvin Elliott.

Should a "too good to be true" offer for Nicky Maynard emerge, he will be allowed to leave the club, and Millen has reportedly lined up a 2m move for Peterborough's Craig Mackail Smith. He is directly being lined up as a replacement for David Clarkson, with Jon Stead, Brett Pitman and Nicky Maynard the only remaining under contract Strikers. Should Nicky Maynard leave in the summer, Millen will look to bolster the front line, but McKail Smith is widely expected to become the club's 4th striker.

City will not be signing Andrew Keogh after his loan signing, whilst an attempt to renew the loan of Steven Caulker at this stage seems unlikely with him favouring a move to Fulham.

Tottenham however will offer Bongani Khumalo to Bristol City on a season long loan with a view to a permanent deal. He has spent this season on loan at Preston North End.

ED was talking to a rangers scout today at the airport who said he was heading to turkey today to watch a team called manisaspor but wouldn't say any players he was watching. {Ed001's Note - the only player of theirs I know of is the ex-Man Utd striker Manucho, I will make a note of it and ask if anyone else knows of anyone there that could be of interest.}

I think there are 2 players who could potentially be of interest if attending this Saturday's game;

Josh Simpson of Canada and Manisaspor. English speaking with British League experience , an international, and someone who can play out wide (much needed)

or maybe Jelavic's fellow Croat Jerko Leko?


Green is out of contract in the summer.West Ham have yet offered him a new deal.And I do not think that Lambert would touch him with a barge poll.Or Upson who is out of contract to.There is better players out there in Europe for free.Lambert knows his stuff, and is very tuned in.

Ronnie Moore is set for a sensational return to former club Tranmere Rovers as the Merseysiders are expected to announce a takeover by American company, Club9Sports, this week.

Current manager, Les Parry, will be relieved of his duties, as will assistant manager, Kevin Summerfield, and first team coach, Dave Lowe.

Moore's son, Ian Thomas-Moore, will be named player-assistant manager, and will return to Rovers after only leaving the club in January of this year following a series of high profile fall-outs with Parry. Former Coventry City and Middlesbrough striker, Noel Whelan, who has been working with Club9Sports and who has been the firm's main point of contact with outgoing chairman Peter Johnson, will also join Tranmere in an advisory capacity but will not occupy a position which will see him involved in first team affairs.

Moore will be handed a transfer kitty of £5million for next season and will target experienced players such as Shefki Kuqi and Francis Jeffers, as well as former Rovers midfielder, Anthony Kay, his main summer targets. He will also look to keep promising youngsters Dale Jennings and Thomas Cresswell at Prenton Park.

The new American owners are thought to have already set Moore the target of taking Tranmere into the Championship within two years and the Premiership within five.
