27 08 2010

Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor is determined to leave Eastlands before the end of the transfer window if an offer comes in for him.

[picapp align=”left” wrap=”true” link=”term=Klaas+Jan+Huntelaar&iid=9206032″ src=”http://view4.picapp.com/pictures.photo/image/9206032/cameroon-netherlands/cameroon-netherlands.jpg?size=500&imageId=9206032″ width=”234″ height=”348″ /] Tottenham are in talks with AC Milan over bringing Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (left) to White Hart Lane on a season-long loan deal. The move will include the option to buy at the end of the spell, with the sum of £12m thought to be the asking price.

Newcastle and West Ham are keen on signing Tottenham striker Robbie Keane on loan before the transfer window shuts on Tuesday.

Liverpool and Newcastle will find out soon who has won the race to sign Marseille winger Hatem Ben Arfa. The 23-year-old has gone on strike at his French club in an effort to force through a move. German side Werder Bremen are also interested.

Fulham boss Mark Hughes is set to raid his former club Manchester City to sign striker Roque Santa Cruz and goalkeeper Shay Given.

Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is not interested in leaving the Dutch side for Arsenal following their Champions League qualification.

West Ham are poised to make a move for Hamburg’s 29-year-old right-back Guy Demel.

Stoke and Portsmouth are lining up a swap deal with winger Liam Lawrence and striker Dave Kitson set to head for the south coast and Marc Wilson moving to Staffordshire.

Arsenal have made an inquiry for Lille goalkeeper Mickael Landreau – but have not given up on signing Fulham’s Mark Schwarzer.

AC Milan and Barcelona have agreed a deal to take striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the San Siro, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Scott Parker will sign a new five-year contract at West Ham – if he is still at Upton Park when the transfer window shuts. Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has had an £8m offer for the midfielder turned down recently.

Suspicions that Manchester City might be stockpiling players in order to prevent them signing for rivals could lead to the Premier League reviving attempts to outlaw player loans.

New Manchester United striker Bebe, who manager Alex Ferguson paid £7.4m for without seeing him play, was not included in the club’s recent 16-man reserve squad to face Manchester City – and was this week taken out of a training match because he was ‘off the pace’.

Former Hull manager Phil Brown, who is currently out of work, has reiterated his desire to become England manager.

England manager Fabio Capello can forget about recalling Paul Scholes to the national squad. The veteran Manchester United midfielder has no intention of going back on his 2004 decision to retire from international football.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez called Birmingham boss Alex McLeish “disrespectful” over his pursuit of Latics winger Charles N’Zogbia.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reopened his feud with Stoke, accusing them of turning football into ‘rugby’.

Along with reacting angrily to the taunts of former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho – who said that Rafael Benitez was lucky to inherit such a good side – the club’s new manager has slammed a decision to allow television cameras into changing rooms at Serie A games, insisting it breaches a “priestly sanctuary”.

With the help of the legendary Pierluigi Collina, Uefa president Michel Platini has launched a new initiative that he claims will produce referees who are just as fit as footballers – and who will be able to provide a “99 to 100 per cent” guarantee of no more mistakes.

Former Manchester United and Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin has appeared at the Cambridge Rock Festival to promote his new musical invention. The Dube is a cube percussion instrument – a drum with knobs on – which comes in four sizes and can be customised in colour schemes and tones.

If you would like to see Dion Dublin and his dube in action, look no further.

Seems to be a box with some holes in it.
