Sunday papers day so hundreds of mad cap stories doing the rounds!:
Did anyone mention that Tottenham were interested in Andy Carroll? *YAWN* :
We turned down Â£23m so they have turned their attention to Llorente (rejected), Aguero (rejected), Scott Parker (rejected), DJ Campbell (rejected)
Xisco returns to Deportivo:
It looks like the Xisco kid managed to avoid having to invest in an oxygen mask and has returned to Deportivo rather than moving to the Boro (subject to medical).
Liverpool and Man United to battle for Jose Enrique?:
I doubt this one is a runner - you can write Liverpool off straight away as they're not famous anymore.
Newcastle bail out Ireland (Confirmed subject to medical)
I am happy with this one - a better player than Danny Guthrie so strengthens the squad and the loan factor means that it is relatively risk free.
Newcastle to offer 500K for Coventry keeper Keiren Westwood (Sunday Mirror)
Never going to happen, unless Mike Ashley has a keeper fetish.
New bid made for Seb Larsson (Various)
So all in all not many fresh new links and our business is likely to be concluded soon. I was going to list a few internet rumours but there are so many and they are so wild (Lukas Podolski!) that it is pointless. I am just glad the jason Puncheon rumours were false!
