Football update: Transfer Deadline
We’ve finally reached ‘that’ stage of the season. The last day of dealings. Majority of the clubs most people would be interested have completed their spending but there are some smaller club mugging about, also notoriously we’ve all come to expect some surprises come this time of the year.
The main players in contention. Tottenham Hotspurs’ Rafeal Van der Vaart, City’s Nigel De Jong and Fulham’s Clint Dempsey. Even heard some murmurs of Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge being pried to Liverpool on Loan
Liverpool will pursue a loan deal for Sturridge after loaning out fellow striker Andy Carroll, 23, to West Ham.
Porto say Tottenham will have to smash their £16.5m transfer record to land 25-year-old midfielder Joao Moutinho.
Done deals of over the past few days include Andy Carroll’s loan switch to West Ham, Nigel De Jong’s switch to AC Milan, Kieran Richardson’s move to Fulham, Tottenham’s Danny Rose to Sunderland and Dimitar Berbatov to West Ham, Mousa Dembele to Tottenham and Scott Sinclair has just been signed by Manchester City
Other stupid questions people have been asking is stuff like where would Michael Owen be going? Will Joey Barton end up at Marseille and avoid his 12 match ban?
Time is ticking down, only a few hours left to complete any last minute transfers. We’re in for a long night.
