New Manchester United boss David Moyes is wanting to add three new faces to his Old Trafford squad, unless anyone leaves the side.
Moyes is keen on adding two defenders and a midfielder.
One of the defenders is young Athletic Bilbao player Aymeric Laporte. Moyes was keen on signing Laporte for Everton but also sees the potential in him to join United. Laoprte isn't expected to jump straight in the first team but is regarded as one of the French stars of the future at the tender age of 18.
The second defender is thought to be Chelsea star Ashley Cole. Cole was initially wanting to stay in London but is keen on possibly joining Moyes in Manchester. It will all depend on if Jose Mourinho joins Chelsea as boss.
Moyes' third transfer target is Zenit player Axel Witsel. Witsel only signed for the Russian side in September but is keen on getting away. The former Standard Liege and Benfica player is expected to cost anything around the £55 million mark.
Moyes will go for
Moyes wants Baines not Cole
Why on earth would utd pay 55m for Witsel?

Him and Vaughan would be a right pairing! Get spending hoyle!
20 May 2013 20:23:39
My sources have advised me that Ipswich, which have been looking for defensive midfielder to replace N'Daw, have been scouting former Chelsea trialist Adigun Salami. He currently plays he Denmark but is considered to be worthy of a try.
I will keep you posted
20 May 2013 20:20:12

20 May 2013 19:49:31
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is keen on signing a defender, midfielder and a forward to compete in The Championship.
French defender Yoann Zanoni had been on trial with The Cherries towards the end of last season and has been invited back for another week in pre season. Howe was impressed with Zanoni but is keen on getting his fitness up before a contract is agreed.
Young Crystal Palace midfielder Bayan Fenwick has impressed Howe on loan this season at Eastbourne. Fenwick is tipped to be a star for the future and could sign a season long loan deal towards the end of July. Fenwick will train with the club for two weeks and then the details of the loan will be agreed from there.
The forward linked with The Cherries is Stefan Cebara. The 22 year old impressed a number of Italian sides over the last few months but has chose to join an English side. The former Zalaegerszegi TE striker currently plays in Slovenia for Celje and could cost the South Coast club around £100,000.
Eddie howe said last week on radio solent he was going to sign players with championship experience
none of these 3 tick that box

liam bridcutt is on Werder Bremens radar with a possible €6 million bid in the pipeline
10 million actually
20 May 2013 19:35:44
followed Darren Bent's white range rover into Norwich today on my way to work. i'm praying he isn't signing!
How do you know it was his?
Why would Norwich want Bent? Surely, RVW, GH, LB are better, also Gary Hooper looks to be going to Norwich.
I've always been of the opinion of not really wanting to see Bent at Norwich. However, if Hughton can get him firing again and he's willing to take a pay cut, it might be a good option. Lambert is a lousy man manager and he falls out with everyone whereas Hughton is a much better option for Bent.
20 May 2013 19:27:08
Leeds considering a move for commanding CB Zurab Khizanishvili, formerly of Rangers, Blackburn and Brian McDermott's Reading. The Georgian is available on a free after leaving Kayserispor.

dani alves to psg this summer
Could see it. Benitez signing
20 May 2013 19:25:55
Simeon Jackson has been released by Norwich City.
Huddersfield Town and Derby County are the most interested in the championship, another battle for a striker from Norwich will commence as both are going after James Vaughan too.
However expect several other championship teams to be linked with him in the coming weeks that may be able to beat the rams and terriers in terms of wage offering.
Vaughan, Jackson and Wells, now that's some attack the Terriers are going to have.
It would sadden me if Huddersfield were showing this ambition and blowing Derby out of the water. Long way to go but Rush has been promising we will be excited by the team we have by the end of the transfer window.
Hey ho let's see what the summer brings, either more spin or maybe some substance.
20 May 2013 19:07:53
Gary McSheffrey is set to follow his old boss Aidy Boothroyd to Northampton. He is a direct replacement for Ishy Demontagnac who is now on the transfer list, following a season of unconvincing displays.
20 May 2013 19:06:24
lewis mcgugan is to snub a new deal at forrest and move to 1 of premeir trio swansea, southampton and wba
I've heard he's very close to signing a new 3 year deal at forest
I think he is best off at Forest, he's doing some very good work there and I'm not sure how well he'd settle to another club. He'd do best to stay and push on with Forest who could be a Premiership club again really if they play their cards right this summer. Good luck for next season (From a Southampton fan).
Southampton won't be interested in him. We are linked with 15 million rated midfielders from abroad, not mcgugan.
Your chairman is thinking about going so you won't be spending 15 mill
20 May 2013 19:05:38

a host of premier league clubs are linning up burnley hotshot charlie austin as they look to add to there strike force this summer. a. villa, sunderland, southampton, hull and wba have shown interest
Can't see him following Rodriguez to Southampton, but then again it would make it one Burnley player per season 3 in a row for us.
20 May 2013 18:52:25
Like I said earlier willo flood is set to sign for aberdeen
20 May 2013 18:51:39
Despite winning promotion to League one Bradford City striker Nakhi Wells wants to leave. Championship clubs Birmingham City, Bolton, Blackburn, Burnley, Huddersfield Leeds, Reading and Yeovil Are all interested in signing him plus league one sides Brentford, Coventry City, Oldham, Preston, Sheffield United and Wolves all want him.
You forgot afc bournemouth
We won't get Wells he'll go to a better club
Nahki's going nowhere. This time next year he'll be looking forward to playing in the championship as Bradford city will get back to back promotion.
Yes please form a htfc fan
Even though after the game he said that he was going to stay, CTID!!
He is off to Bolton £600,000
Bradford fans are overly confident just cause they have nahki wells and a big lump up front. Think they will struggle especially if gary jones is still their first choice CM, he helped dale get relegated from league 1
21 May 2013 08:18:23
Too expensive a risk IMO unproven at championship level, we are better off trying to sign Vaughan and Jackson from Norwich. HTFC
20 May 2013 18:35:34
Jamie Cureton, Alan Lee, Lee Novak and William Gros all targets for Oldham Athletic
20 May 2013 18:46:52
Reading to sell pogrebnyak and sign Carlton Cole. Macanuff to leave for yeovil
Im a YTFC Fan and tbh I can't see mcanuff coming to us if he does brilliant great signing but I doubt it if he goes anywhere itll be to somewhere like birmingham or a bigger team
20 May 2013 18:44:24
Eddie Howe is already looking at Wolves, Adam Hammill as a potential replacement for Harry Arter should he leave.
20 May 2013 18:40:09

Neeeever gunna happen
I would love the beast to sign
20 May 2013 18:38:15
Oldham midfielder Jose Baxter set to snub Preston and Tranmere and sign for Huddersfield despite late interest from Wigan.
20 May 2013 19:56:00
preston dnt want him
£1M for him Hudds?
Tranmere can't afford him
Preston couldn't afford Baxter
Preston can't afford him don't you mean! They'd love to have one of the top 5 league 1 creative midfielders playing for them. Ripped preston apart in a 3-0 win at home last year
We don't need anymore midfielders
Did not do oldham much good last season just avoided drop
20 May 2013 18:25:33
I have heard from a very reliable source that the very publicised offer for Luke shaw was of course rejected firmly by saints and advised they would not entertain any further offers. However this has taken a new twist when Chelsea went back with an offer of cash, returning shaw on loan for 2 seasons, the transfer (assume a loan) for lukaku and a pick of Chelsea's youth believed to be Nathan ake as saints choice. This is a complex deal that could take weeks if it happens at all but Chelsea are trying any means to get the man they see as a long term replacent for cole at lb.
Chelsea are not interested. We have already agreed to sign Wallace a Brazilian left back.
Sounds like a good bit of business depends on the size of the cash part though
If Chelsea want Shaw then they will get him
20 May 2013 18:17:05
Eddie Howe wants to sign Zoumana Bakayogo to replace the departing Jon Meades however it may be hard to persuade the former Tranmere defender due to high competition from Charlie Daniels.
If Harry Arter leaves Bournemouth for Swansea, Howe wants Kenny Agustien as a swap deal plus money.
Howe is also interested in acquiring Simeon Jackson in return for Arter should the former Woking player make the move to either of these two clubs
Kemy agustein, and if he's involved in the deal there will be no money in the deal.
20 May 2013 18:10:46
Hamza Bencherif has emerged as a transfer target for Cheltenham manager Mark Yates.
20 May 2013 18:14:14
Bolton chasing Norwich city lb mark tierney.
Has been released by Norwich (on offical site), is a decent LB, not the quickest but more than capable, I'm dissappointed we let him go.
This is now official, he will join when his contract ends at Norwich at beginning July.
20 May 2013 18:06:35
Cheltenham Town are closing in on the signing of veteran striker Alan Lee.
20 May 2013 17:43:42
bristol city are close to signing 3 polish footballers szymon pawlowski is a right winger and is seen as a replacement for adomah the other 2 players are arkadiusz wozniak from the same club as pawlowski zaglebie lubin
20 May 2013 18:03:11
yeovil are slightly interested in league two duo Marlon Pack and Jacques Maghoma, with richard hinds leaving yeovil.
I don't see how any Yeovil fans think they can compete with other championship clubs for players like Pack & Maghoma, when they have barely enough money to keep Paddy Madden
We just got 4 million which is going into our playing budget.
How do we barely have enough money to keep Paddy?
20 May 2013 18:02:55
Bolton look set to sign Marc Tierney

Eddie Howe to turn his attentions to Nakhi Wells after being told he doesn't stand a chance of resigning Charlie Austin who fancies a crack at the Premier League - probably Hull
20 May 2013 17:40:03
Ipswich interested in Dutch midfielder Kevin Brands of recently relegated Willem II. Also keen on Sochaux defender Banana Yaya on a season long loan.
Wow. I REALLY hope we get Banana Yaya. I've no idea whether he's good or not; I just want to hear Brenner Woolley saying his name on the commentaries.
20 May 2013 22:21:38
Is that a joke hahah.
20 May 2013 17:41:50
With the promotion secured for Bradford they are looking to add experience in the shape of ex-Huddersfield Striker Lee Novak which would suit as he wants regular first team football and its only a short trip from the John Smiths stadium
No chance Novak is on 8k a week and that is part of the reason Hudders won't renew his contract.
Would be a good signing for Bradford - all the best Lee from a Town fan.
20 May 2013 17:36:20
Pepe to sign for Manchester City with David Villa and Falcao.
A combined 84m
20 May 2013 17:39:05
Doncasters new manager is Paul Dickov *CONFIRMED*
JR scrimping again, what record has Dickov got? Lost 61 games out of 140 POOR can not see us surviving next season only managed 1 team, JR says wants someone with experience it's just a laugh with those big white teeth, a total joke. Us fans deserve better.
Good luck to him
Give him a chance and then judge. See what transfers he brings in and see where we are in January.
Agreed a 30% win rate and no championship or winning experience. I can see this going only one way
What a load of tripe. JR has overseen 4 promotions in recent times and apparently we deserve better?! Welcome Mr Dickov and good luck!
I also agree, Is this how the Doncaster board arrieved at their 18 point criteria, Past Premership manager 5pts, past championship manager 3pts, Managed no fewer than 5 clubs 5pts, won more than 1 trophey 3pts, Singed Matt Derbyshire for less than £1500 per week 18 PTS, I know where we will be come January, As does most DRFC Fans
20 May 2013 17:36:16
Craig Eastmond has left Arsenal and Signed for League 1 club Colchester United!

20 May 2013 16:55:06
Cheltenham are interested in re-signing winger Ashley Vincent. Vincent failed to agree a new contract with Port Vale
Been told he is off to link up with John ward at Bristol rovers
Was wondering how long this rumour would take to spring up.
Very unlikely, although would fit with what CTFC need in order to strengthen.
Vincent won't be returning to Cheltenham. Bristol Rovers are in talks with him as are Rotherham and Bradford.
20 May 2013 16:42:34
New Doncaster manager' Paul Dickov will go back to Oldham and sign Yves Mvoto and Jose Baxter, along with last season Rovers loanee' Dean Furman
Baxter on 2 year deal hope donny av plenty of money
20 May 2013 19:34:19
Donny have just recieved 6 million for winning the league. They can afford 5 Jose Baxters
So? We got somthing like 6 million from mild and wellens a few years ago and didn't spend it and won't spend it this time the club have said they won't spend money it will be frees and loans they are going to use the money from making profit from running the stadium to find the first team squad so don't think we will be spending millions, or for that matter be getting sharp back which most rovers fans seem to think, why would he come back when he's for better clubs wanting him
Amaxing how Donny fans say our team are? yet you want our players now.
Baxter will cost you 2.5 million then.
Mvoto is a free but doens. t get on with Dickov and then Furman has laready jumped to you anyway.
Won;t happen as Baxter will still be here in August. dickov likes loan players anyway so he will save you money and you may get trip to portugal for team building as well, Didn;t work at oldham and nearly got us relegated then he walked.
20 May 2013 16:38:21

Ashley Vincent to Portsmouth on a free transfer after failing to agree a new contract
Portsmouth can't sign everyone.
Portsmouth can't sign anyone, what are you going on about, we have signed 10 players already in 2 weeks!
If we can't sign anyone how come we have signed 11 already!
Left Vale after they couldn't afford what he wanted. Not coming to Pompey, we have a strict wage structure. Rotherham wil get him.
20 May 2013 16:35:52
Burton boss Rowett wanting to 'build from the back' this summer and thus target Bell from Coventry and Magnus Okuonghae from Colchester and Tom Naylor from Derby.

West ham and Celtic have agreed fee and terms for Gary Hooper. Celtic are looking to replace him with Charlie Austin
20 May 2013 16:28:37
Full-back Jernade Meade is interesting a number of clubs including Watford, after surprisingly being released by Arsenal.
He's a left winger from Luton might be worth a shout
He's better than that lazy, weak, wannabe Ashley Cole, clown Briggs!
I'd take him if it meant Briggs never set foot inside Vicarage Road again!
