Oh my lord... really?
The People have come up with a transfer rumour and a half today... a possible swap with Ashley Young going to White Hart Lane and Aaron Lennon coming the other way.
Or at least I think 'LOL`... who knows in the crazy world of football?
Harry Redknapp was quoted recently saying he was not after Young but (cliche warning) football is a funny old game. Not this funny though surely? 'We've got Gareth Bale - what would I do with him? I can't get Niko Kranjcar on the pitch; he's a fantastic player. What am I going to do with another left winger, give myself another headache?'
Liverpool are also said to be interested in Young.

The People also claim to know the budget that Gerard Houllier has been given by Randy Lerner and say the transfer kitty is around £30million.
Alan Nixon of The People says Houllier will get a 'stunning` January kitty of £30million.
People Sport also claim that the following are amongst our targets:
Manchester United`s Michael Carrick,
Nottingham Forest midfielder Lewis McGugan
Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.
So the report says we`ll have the £17million from the Milner sale, another £10m + some more if some players are sold in January.
The News of the World meanwhile say that John Carew will leave in January for a price tag of around £2.5million.
So far we have:
