Celtic to sell Scott Brown to Villa for £4m and Stephen Ireland on loan till the end of the season. Celtic cannot afford his wages for any longer than half a season or it would have been a straight swap. Still talk of Petrov coming back but he is waiting to see of Martin wants him when he gets the West Ham job.

Celtic are set to launch a shock raid on Hoffenheim for their £4 million rated striker Chinedu Obasi. Obasi has recentley fell out of favour at Hoffenheim and the striker admited in a recent interview he wants out of Hoffenheim. Hoffenheim manager Jan Schindelmeiser has conceded although he wants to keep the striker it seems unlikely he will be able to. Obasi whos prefered position is a striker has played most of his Hoffenheim career as a winger he has made 74 appearances for Hoffenheim has scored 24 goals.

This is half a rumour and half fact folks

fact half first.

peter lawell is leaven to go to liverpool expect the bunnet back at paradise.

rumour.

no striker comen in keepen what we have , we are signing a defender but he will be a right back not a centre half.


There is nothing factual about this and very little logic here. Firstly, Lawwell has denied this story and if you think Fergus McCann would be interested in uprooting returning to the UK the club he owned as an employee in a hugely demanding role when he is now in his 70's, I'd say you were mad! Much as I admire his work, I just don't see it. In terms of in's and out's, you'll note that Hooijveld is away and O'Dea is staying out on loan which leaves us short at centre half, particularly if loovens moves on. Expect then that Celtic will continue to pursue Wilson early or an alternative loan until the end of the window. Your guess is as good as mine as to whther we will be successful. As for the striker positon, you are presumable accusing the manager of lying when he says its a priority. Either that or you have a crystal ball and just know that all our efforts will fail. Please stop posting utter rubbish!

We will not make a bid for Keane STOP WITH THE BS! ! ! ! ! ! ! !. Do people really think we will pay 6 million for him when we wouldn't even pay 2 million for that other guy. PLEASE STOP WITH THE BS! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !. And also more proof its BS why would you try and sign a 6 million pound striker then fail and go for a 500 k striker?.

Mathias Jrgensen, Sren Frederiksen, Kenneth Zohore, Mikael Antonsson, Dame N'Doye and Morten Nordstrand.

These are all players of F.C. who appear on a long list of potential signings compiled by Celtic scouts and coaches over the past couple of years some of whom are more recently added by Mjallby, this part is for sure.

Celtic have already discussed Hooiveld on loan to Kbenhavn until the season end with the view for a potential signing.

This should mean Celtic will more than likely be trying to sign one of these players and given that it is Hooiveld going it will probably likely be a centre back arriving however Frederiksen reminds me a bit of Huseklepp who i read Celtic were after and hopefully for Celtic if it is N'Doye who is brilliant, but who knows any more?. .

My cousin is friends with the man who takes celtic's training sessions and he texted him asking what transfers were goin on, he replied and i quote "stephen ireland is over looking at the place, he hasnt said anything about it yet but hes still to be shown the rest of the club." this is from a very very good source si i don't want people saying this is bulls* * or why would they sign another midfielder im just telling you what has been told by a person at the club.

Hi Ed. Have heard that negotiations for Huseklepp are likely to get underway again, so a deal may be done. Lennon has said that he does want to bring in a striker in January. If Celtic don't sign Huseklepp, have you heard of any other strikers Celtic are interested in? {ed's note - I haven't mate.}

Celtic Are Looking At The Possibility Of Signing Ameria Attacking Midfielder/Forward Pablo Piatti. He's A Fantastic Little Player And Would Be Perfect As Celtic Are Looking For A Player That Will Create More Chances As Kayal, Brown And Ledley Are Too Defensive. They Should Be Able Too Get The Little Argentinian For Between 2.5/3.5 Million Euro's =). Get Your Finger Out Lennon And Get Him Signed!

I work with killie as a afterschool youth coach in and around kilmarnock and get a run to the q8 garage in hurlford every thursday and fri from connor sammon or garry hay. Was making convo last week with sammon about the transfer widow like in general and he replies and i quote I think it would be amazing to get the chance to play for the tic f* *ing brilliant. To my shock i never mentiond anything about him personally he just changed his total mood seemed pure happy all of a sudden he also mentioned he aint going to sc* thorpe as he would rather go to a bigger team in scotland once again he mentiond celtic and hibs. Dont know if anythings been done on this or him just being hopefull to wear the hoops but tbh he could do a job untill end of season and is miles better than murphy lol ps don't say this is bs ect im just repeating what he said to me cheers

Somebody mentioned a couple of days ago that skippy has said he'd like to come back to Celtic. This is true. I was talking to my dad about it this morning because he is currently on holiday in Oz (my brother lives out there). Anyway, a guy that my brother knows is a huge sports fan and he said he read in an interview that McDonald still loves Celtic and would return if asked. Apparently, he only left because he enjoyed working with Strachan. Now that WGS has left boro, there is no real draw to keep him there. Don't think we'd take him back, but if WGS gets a job somewhere soon, expect Skippy to follow.

Ha Ha we are going to spend 7 million signing Carew, Dunne and Petrov? Are you mad we wouldn't even spend 2 million on a badly needed striker!. Plus Carew is on 60 k a week Dunne is on 80 k and Petrov is on 55 k So stop talking BS! !.

i think you will find 3 and 3 and 2 = 8 not 7
and like i said it is only a rumour i heard and this is a rumour page not fact ed am i right that this is a rumour page {ed's note - plus you never said they were going to buy all of them, it is perfectly possible to talk to a club about 3 players and take just one of them.}

lawell leaving
and mcgeady {ed's note - I don't think Lawell is going, he certainly dismissed the story as untrue. McGeady is out of your budget, no matter how desperate he is to leave Russia, but he is trying to get out of there. I believe there is an attempt to revive a deal for Huseklepp but that is all I have heard with any substance.}

I used to work with Peter Lawell and the man is Celtic through and through. Liverpool might be a challenge to him but he's got his dream job already so it would take a very good offer.

Lennon said yesterday the he expects to get a new striker the week after next. Could this be because the new striker is already committed to playing at the Asia Cup which ends on 29th January. Could the new striker be Scott McDonald? just a hunch but I think this is a real possibility.

I can confirm that Steven Ireland has been at parkhead today ( Sat 15/01/11 ) Nothing has been agreed yet but expect something to be finalised in the next few day, probably a 6 month load deal! FACT.

Also Lennon has kept in touch with Aidan McGeady, as most of the staff at Celtic have, Lennon told my dad he is getting on fine and enjoying the challenge, but he is a little homesick and would like to return to Scotland within the next 2 years, hopefully he is more of a mature team player when he comes back! Thats if Celtic want him?

This is all fact, i am the son of Celtic's head of youth Chris McCart. {ed's note - one of the other editors has told me McGeady is homesick as well, though he believes that his agent has been told to get him a move back to the UK now if possible. Apparently he hates that you can't have any kind of social life unless you are accompanied by armed guards.}
