Transfer Rumor Roundup


Recommended Posts

As the transfer window is now open, it's probably a good time to do a round-up of the rumors.

Today's People Rangers are after David Thompson with possibly Ball or Rickson coming the other way (or even Hartson if last weeks rumors are to be believed) and the News Of The World have Ferguson returning to Rangers for a mere £3M. Of course, several of the tabloids have already linked Ferguson with Souness again at Newcastle. Sky Sports however have quotes from Hughes saying that Ferguson isn't for sale. The story also confirms the news that our bid for Robbie Savage has been turned down and that the loan of Manchester United defender Johnathon Spector has been delayed because of the injury problems at United

The News of The World (along with a couple of other Sunday papers) has us linked with Benfica's Croatian striker Tomislav Sokota others have linked us with cash-strapped Parma's Grella who is also wanted by Calgari and Lazio .

The deal for New Zealand captain Ryan Nelsen which many thought was done and dusted is now looking shaky acording to NZ News site "stuff", but as the article lists other incoming defender as Spector as confirmed and links us with out of favour Liverpool player and ex-Rover Henchoz it may be pure speculation.

Elsewhere, Sheff United are rumored to be making a cheeky for Jon Stead acording to the News Of The World

One player that is expected to move in the transfer windows is James Beattie and whilst he isn't expected to return to Ewood it is strongly believed that Rovers negotiated a sizeable sell-on clause when he was sold to Southampton, so any move should net Rovers a percentage of the transfer value.

Various news sources are reporting that former Rovers striker James Beattie has agreed to join Everton rather than Aston Villa and is now set to complete a £6.5m transfer to Goodison Park, where he will under go a medical tomorrow.

This as previously reported Rovers should benifit financially as a result of a clause included during Beattie's transfer from Rovers to Southampton in 1998.

Meanwhile Mark Hughes has confirmed that Danny Gabbidon will not be joining Rovers.

SSN are reporting Mark Hughes as stating.

''Danny is a very good defender and I have a great respect for his ability,''
