    Shakhtar's Jadson has cast further doubts over his future by claiming that he wants to play for a major European side.


    David Trezeguet will sign a 2 1/2 year contract with River later this afternoon.


    Former Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink is rumored to sign with Anzhi with a proposed salary of Euros 8m/yr and set to make Drogba his top target.

    I spoke to him (Drogba) and he told me firmly that he has a good reason to go and live somewhere else' - Marseille Sporting Director


    Drogba's deal runs out in the summer and talks over an extension have broken down because he has been offered only a 12-month contract when he wants double that.

    Shenhua are backed by wealthy businessman Zhou Jun, who believes he can take advantage of the fall-out. Zhou said: "Drogba, is a very excellent player. If these big-name players are willing to come to China, we are willing to have warm negotiations and communications with them.

    "A lot of clubs are chasing Drogba. From our perspective, we also have to see what Drogba wants. So from our club's perspective, we have this to say: If he is willing to come, we will definitely welcome him."

    Drogba's agent Thierno Seydi said last week the Ivory Coast international will go to where he can earn the most and Shenhua's rivals Dalian Aerbin are believed to have already offered him a three-year deal worth £200,000 a week.



    Wenger dismissive of reports that he's trying to sign Yoann Gourcuff on loan

    Borussia Dortmund will not stand in the way of Lucas Barrios if he decides to seek a transfer in January.

    Lucas Barrios was an important player for Dortmund last season.
    Barrios, a Paraguay international, has failed to get back into the Dortmund team on a regular basis this season after picking up an injury at the Copa America last summer.

    The club's top goalscorer in each of the last two seasons has expressed his unhappiness at the current situation and Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke admits they may have to consider selling him this winter.

    ''Obviously Lucas is unhappy when he is not playing,'' Watzke told the Bild newspaper. "I would prefer it if he were to stay, but if he does come to us and say he wants to go then we would have to talk about it.

    What type of player is Gaitan? Not saw enough of him to tell what role's he can excel in. Is he a winger type like Nani or someone that can come into the middle and be a playmaker like Silva? Man U are in desperate need of the latter.

    From the info i have found on him since Man utd have been scouting him - he plays as a winger for Benfica , he can play either wing , in the hole maybe upfront if needed .

    But he has talked many times about how much he loves to play in the middle of the park so yeah would be more of a play maker.

    Liverpool looked at Bent last season and could look at him again expect a striker in at Liverpool soon Suarez ban expected to be bad and need cover.

    AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani will meet with MCFC on Thursday to discuss signing Carlos Tevez.


    Roberto Mancini: "The best solution for us is to sell [Carlos Tevez. We can't let him leave on loan."

    Liverpool ,Newcastle,West Ham target Wilfried Zaha to stay at Crystal Palace -


    Crystal Palace are delighted to announce that Wilfried Zaha has signed a new five and a half year contract with the club

    Andre Villas-Boas has identified Jack Rodwell as the first major brick in rebuilding his Chelsea team and is confident he will land the Everton midfielder next month. £20m bid expected

    That Ross Barkley looks a brighter prospect and it might mean that Everton could actually spend money this window. Always felt Rodwell was over rated, the fact that someone is English seems to make their value double!

    The lad is only 18 just signed a new long term contract the other day Everton fan and very happy to stay and learn his trade with them .

    Rodwell is a excellent player done a job on Silva early on in the season one of the only players i have saw that man marked him and done a excellent job on him .

    A very good player at the minute. sufferred a few injuries which hampered his progress last season, but has all the qualities to be an exceptional central midfielder- looks an athlete, can pass very well, can dribble, and has a decent shot on him.

    20m fee about right when you look at much Henderson ,Barry ,Milner etc all went for .

    Aye they are looking at him unsure if they will buy him .

    QPR boss Neil Warnock on Jelavic - 'he's a player who has been mentioned to me, not the other way around. We haven't expressed an interest.'

    So either the Huns or his agent been offering him around clubs:56:

    French media believe David Beckham's deal to PSG is nearly complete. He will get 20% of anything sold with his name on, doubling his wages.

    Kenny Dalglish has confirmed Liverpool's interest in promising striker Rory Donnelly.

    The 19-year-old was in talks with Swansea City yesterday but has been the subject of interest from both the Reds and Merseyside rivals Everton, who are both keen to secure his services.

    Cliftonville chairman Gerard Lawlor revealed yesterday that he had received a call from Kop boss Dalglish, who is sizing up his options for a striker ahead of the January transfer window.

    Today Dalglish publicly declared his interest in the highly-rated Northern Ireland starlet.

    He said: "I spoke to the chairman. It was nice of him to tell everybody!

    "There's a bit of interest in the boy from a few places so we've registered our interest.

    "That's as far as it goes at the moment."

    Lille looking at Nolan Roux as they struggle to keep hold of Moussa Sow, who's being watched by PSG, Arsenal & Newcastle.

    Portuguese press are linking Benfica with a move for Rubin Kazan's Cristian Ansaldi.


    Wolfsburg begin negotiations with Everton over Diniyar Bilyaletdinov

    Barcelona president - "Do I want to sign Neymar? That decision is up to the coach. I'm only the president,"


    Barcelona paid Santos 10M for an option to sign Neymar (19) at any point until 2014. If Santos withdraw, they have to pay 20M [the national]


    Neymar has already agreed personal terms with Barcelona for when they decide to sign him. Santos gave permission for the deal [the national]

    Hearts' Eggert Jonsson is close to completing a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers, STV has learned.

    The Edinburgh club agreed a fee with the English Premier League side last week. It is understood Jonsson was talking terms with Mick McCarthy's side on Monday afternoon, as he nears his exit from Tynecastle.

    The 23-year-old, who can play in defence and midfield, moved to Scotland from Icelandic side KF Fjardabyggdar in 2005.

    Jonsson has made 153 appearances for Hearts, scoring nine goals. He has also been capped 12 times by Iceland.
