Wollscheid still isn't officially done yet and Kramaric to Leicester seems likely to be official over the next couple of days also.
I don't know what they're pratting about with tbh, he's had a medical, he's in Stoke training and both Hughes and Bowen are talking about him like he's already a Stoke player. Very weird.

Bowen has said we have "genuine interest" in Shaqiri too. :D

Schwarzer to Leciester on a 1.5 year contract, which will take him until about 44. What a dude.

Rijeka have announced the Kramaric deal official but Leicester City is still waiting on the news. I guess they still have to secure the work permit which should be a formality (Croatia is in the EU)

Mitrovic of Anderlecht is apparently the player Swansea want to replace Bony with.

Valdes to Man U official, certainly the second best back-up GK in the league behind Cech.

Rumors starting of a potential Altidore/Defoe swap deal. Wages on Defoe's front seems to be the issue for Sunderland. MLS will have zero problem paying Jozy 5-6 mil a season :rolleyes:

Altidore is a player I really just don't get. I think it's more mental than physical or talent. He has all the right attributes for the Prem, he's a proven goalscorer in America and Holland, I just don't get why he can't stick it in the net in England.

With 2 clubs now, it's mental for me, not the player he is. Weird one, because I think he'd be too good for some Championship clubs, but maybe not quite enough for Prem.

Jozy's athletic but his first touch isn't great.

Nugent and good player? :pp at least in the premiership

Never really rated Altidore, he has his attributes but if the US really want to make the "next level" he cannot be the starting striker, sad thing is there is really no other options at this point

Anyway the latest rumor is that Sunderland want Defoe + 3-4 million for Altidore...it probably should be the other way around :D

Jozy was utter shit for us when he was here. He's an extremely poor man's Emile Heskey.

Paper gossip today....

Neto to Liverpool - I could see this one as Mignolet is struggling and Jones isn't effective completion and he could be cheap as he's coming to the end of his contract, I still think they should have been in very strongly for Valdes.

Lambert to WBA or Palace - Can't see this happening until the summer. I feel for Rickie that his big move isn't working out.

Naughton to Leicester - Can absolutely see this happening as he isn't a Spurs quality player, but is good enough for a lower table side.

Mcmanaman to WBA - Doesn't exactly seem to be lighting the championship up, so depends how much.

Laporte to Man U - Perhaps in summer, I think it's highly unlikely now.

Carles Gil to Villa - This one seems more or less done according to Guillem Ballaque. I don't know anything about him, tbh.

Van Dijk to Arsenal - Think it would be sensible for him to start with a smaller club in England.

Jovetic to Juventus - I can see this happening. Jovetic is always injured.

Higuain to Liverpool - Don't see Napoli letting Higuain go mid season. Would be an excellent signing for anyone.

Seems to struggle to hold down a place in a struggling Wigan side, strange as I always thought he looked a decent player when they were in the premiership.

Yeah Naughton ought to leave. Even Vlad Chiriches is getting starts ahead of him as a RB.

Are you guys serious about Nugent? He might not be prolific but the work rate + cracking goals he scores every now and again make him a useful player for Leicester. Had he not smacked that ball off the bar this past weekend, he would have had goal of the month. Scored a great one over the xmas period too, decent player in my opinion, vastly underrated because he was SO overrated in his youth.
