January Transfer Window Talk 4

January Transfer Window Talk 4

Our previous January Transfer rumours thread got 219 and 225 comments and are now pretty much full January Transfer Window Talk , January Transfer Window Talk 2 and
January Transfer Window Talk 3

So far we have, amongst others, been linked to:

Goalkeeper: Matt Murray

Defenders: Richard Stearman, Greg Halford - Colchester, Phil Bardsley of Man Utd, Matthew Upson from Small Heath, Curtis Davies from West Bromwich Albion, Portsmouth right-back Andy Griffin, Oldham right-back Neil Eardley. Abel Xavier from Middlesbrough,

Midfielders: Joey Barton of Man City, James Milner of Newcastle, Shaun Wright-Phillips from Chelski, Zoltan Gera from WBA, Reading's Kevin Doyle. Ashley Young from Watford. Barry Ferguson from Rangers, Reo Coker from West Ham.

Strikers: David Nugent from Preston, Jermain Defoe and/or Robbie Keane from Spurs, Darren Bent from Charlton, Sean Maloney from Celtic, Freddy Eastwood from Southend, Kevin Davies from Bolton, Mark Viduka from Boro), Alan Smith from Manchester United, Craig Bellamy (old link from rumour thread), Peter Crouch from Liverpool, James Beattie from Everton, Marlon Harewood from West Ham.

And the list goes on...

So far in: Phil Bardsley, from Manchester United, on loan until the end of the season.

Ashley Young transfer from Watford pending following a verbal agreement.

SSN report Lyon expect to sign Baros within the next 72 hours.

Would be good to get a statement from the club really on the Petrov situation, is it unfounded talk or is there some truth in it?

Maybe its all hot air but these reports wont go away.And setanta are a decent source.

On skysports website it says that carew is in taks with bremen over a move to germany. the petrov story just might be papers printing the same old stuff, but then a gain there' s no smoke without fire

I agree that its time some sort of official denial (I hope) or confirmation of these recurring Petrov rumours. I find it a bit unsettling that the club hasn't moved to quash them already, so perhaps there is some truth in them.
22/01/2007 11:39:00
I dont see why the club should lose a vast amount of money on this.He should compensate us.How much is he on a week?
22/01/2007 11:48:00
I hope the Petrov story isn't true. He hasn't set Villa Park alight yet but he deserves longer, and so do we.
22/01/2007 11:58:00
As regards Petrov - we may come to a compromise, it will depend on how much money we've paid them, what wages he wants back at Celtic etc.. Best not to keep unhappy players. Either way I don't think Celtic will want to shaft us.

we have a wierd history with eastern european players.... bosko, savo, baros and now possibly petrov. what's the story? and is this why the polish-striker rumour stopped?
