Having reported yesterday that Leighton Baines might be off to Napoli instead of Manchester United, while Tim Cahill's head hasn't so much been turned as sent into full-on Linda Blair-in-The Exorcist style 360 degree swivel mode by the money being offered to him by some unspecified Saudi Arabian outfit, the Rumour Mill fully expected to be greeted by an angry mob of pike-waving Everton fans upon its arrival at Guardian Towers this morning.

It's not just the families of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott who are planning to give Poland and the Ukraine a wide berth this summer: the England squad's wives and girlfriends are no more keen on Kiev, warm on Warsaw or devoted to Donetsk.

Juventus are ready to scupper Real Madrid's plans for Franck Ribery by making a summer swoop for him, according to reports in Italy.

Steve Bruce has made it clear what he wants from Santa this Christmas, and it isn't a selection of Marks and Spencer's finest cotton socks. The Sunderland manager will be hoping Sir Alex Ferguson has had a little too much festive cheer and feels generous when the discussion over Danny Welbeck's future inevitably comes up.

Ever since Gold and Sullivan took over the club with 50% ownership, they have been very active. Active in gaining fan support and eagerly showing each other off as lifelong Hammer fan. Truth be told, G&S are possibly the best recipient of a club in "haemorrage" (as they have put it). The spin that they have been putting on in the hunt for that prolific striker have been feverish and the media

Ambitious Bundesliga side Hamburger SV have turned their attentions to on-loan Palmeiras forward Vagner Love in their search for attacking reinforcements, according to a report in Hamburger Morgenpost.

After a fresh wave of speculation linking him with a summer move to Barcelona, Arsenal captain 'Cesc Fabregas has muddied the waters regarding his Emirates future, by admitting that he wants a decision to be made one-way-or-the-other before the World Cup begins in June.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has vowed to bolster his defensive ranks over the summer hiatus, after admitting that his side have been guilty of some 'average' defensive performances last year.

United, City Or Villa? Where Now For James Milner?

SoccerLens at related • 1 view

Not so very long ago, many an eyebrow was raised (mine included) when Aston Villa shelled out the lion's share of £12 million to sign James Milner from Newcastle United.

Milner, then just 22-years-old, was a young player with a burgeoning talent and a growing reputation, but it still seemed that the inflated transfer fee was possibly more a result of his recent purple patch than a true reflection of his talents.

No trophies to speak of, a fairly unimpressive league standing and the added frustration of being currently mired in one of the most convoluted takeovers in recent history. In short, Liverpool have had to endure a pretty awful season but there is a dot of hope on the horizon.

So, that's it.

Another transfer window has come and gone, and the January transfer lists are full of names who have switched clubs, either temporarily or permanently.

If you were looking for action and big names moving to and fro, that'll all be in the summer, and given that it's a World Cup year and some big performances by names known and unknown stand to have a great impact on the market, what a summer it projects to be.

Football can be a funny ol' game. You can (in your mind) be playing the best football on the planet, and then along comes a team shorn of their best attackers (transfered away) and defenders (ban / injury), a team that everyone has derided as going downhill, and then you're taught a footballing lesson to rival.

At this point, don't expect to see many, or perhaps even any, notable names added to the January transfer lists, but who knows what surprises the rest of the day could bring.

Scott over at Republik of Mancunia has an excellent comparative analysis of Adebayor (ex-Arsenal) and Tevez (ex-Manchester United) and their actions since joining Manchester City.

As Scott rightly points out, many players have less than pleasant exits from their clubs, but if the departed player makes it a point to taunt / talk about his old club again and again and again, then that player's head is not screwed on right.
