Transfer deadline day news:

Blackpool are to talk with Cardiff City over a season-long loan deal for Rhys Healey.

Blackpool were also interested in fellow Cardiff city striker Eoin Doyle, but it looks as if he will be off to a Championship side (most likely to be Rotherham United) on a loan deal to become permanent in January if his release clause of £500,000 is met.

Also on Blackpool's wanted list is young Manchester City centre-back George Evans. The promising young defender has played League 1 football on loan at Crewe Alexandra and Scunthorpe United and could help bolster Blackpool's backline.

Blackpool are also taking an interest in young Welsh defender Tom Bender, currently at Forest Green Rovers. Also, former Forest Green Rovers manager David Hockaday may be moving to Blackpool in 'a coaching capacity'.

Finally, TJ Nagi of Welsh League side Barry Town United is to be offered a trial with Blackpool after catching the eye of the club's coaching staff.

01 Sep 2015 15:16:39
Doyle could be set for a move to Preston .blackpool need to stick to non league players as that's were they are heading

Bradford City Close to signing Adam Hamill from Huddersfield, the winger is also been courted by Rotherham after a loan spell at the club

30 Jun 2015 14:42:43
Rotherham aren't interested in Hammill. He couldn't force his way into the team at the end of the season and Steve Evans has publicly stated he isn't a target

30 Jun 2015 22:37:20
Good player on his day, shame he does't have many days and his off field life is out of control.

15 Jun 2015 13:32:40
What bollix.

Bristol Rovers v Luton

Luton are still in the Conference FFS!

15 Jun 2015 13:42:46
Soon find out won't we

15 Jun 2015 13:43:22
These fixtures are not correct I've just spoken to someone within the press office at the football league and they haven't even been finalised yet.

15 Jun 2015 16:27:39
Cheese = Luton in the conference.Glad you are not in charge of the fixtures.

15 Jun 2015 16:46:39
Cheese. How are Luton still in the Conference?.

They finished 8th in League 2 last year!

15 Jun 2015 17:00:42
Ah, just wishful thinking!

15 Jun 2015 17:30:49
C Palace, Millwall and charlton all 3 south london clubs all playing away on the same day meaning all playing at home on the same day. I don't think so.

15 Jun 2015 18:56:16
Whether these fixtures are correct or not, Luton Town are in League 2 (finished 8th last season).

16 Jun 2015 00:33:00
Derby County and Nottingham Forest wouldn't both be playing at home

16 Jun 2015 10:26:48
Conclusively wrong as proven by fixtures

16 Jun 2015 18:25:41
York and exeter won't both be home at same time. The risks of fans clashing would be immense

16 Jun 2015 20:23:07
Very inaccurate.

18 Jun 2015 10:01:08

28 May 2015 13:53:16

09 May 2015 00:32:46
Rotherham United are looking to make Jack Hunt their first signing of the summer in a deal which would see them break their transfer record.

30 Jan 2015 05:40:31
Millwall are looking to beat Rotherham & Scunthorpe to the signing of Dutch Forward Kevin Van Veen from Dutch 2nd Division side FC Oss

He has gone to Scunthorpe. Need someone like him.

Gosport Boro striker Matt Paterson being courted by Portsmouth, Oxford, Swindon and now Crawley.

Andy Johnson will snub Wycombe and sign for Luton.

And finally, Rotherham's Fabian Brandy will sign for Rochdale.


14 Jan 2015 13:30:38
quick re-brief of our targets:
Fernando Pacheco - becoming more likely, yet it is getting even quieter as there isn't much notice to this, and it is claimed to be on a loan until the end of the season.
Juan Muniz - all rounded midfielder who can easily give Tomlin a run for his place and is very competitive
Niguez - basically a full on, but younger, version of Whitehead (who is way past his peak in my opinion)

Our right back solution has been resurrected by the arrival of Tomas Kalas so there won't be any more arrivals for the Right back spot, however, two new targets who are under the radar from media have been linked with Boro. These are Tom Cairney who has been mentioned now and again, but nothing has went ahead just yet ( ). The second target is a versatile centre back who can also play in midfield, his name is Marios Oikonomou and he is only 22 years old, so has time to improve even further. He has played for Greece Under 21s and has a good relationship with Dimi Konstantopolous, who we could use to persuade Oikonomou to come to Middlesbrough.

Extra: Mark Hughes has let Robert Huth go out on loan to a Championship club. Watford are winning the race at the moment, but 2 other Football League clubs are interested.

14 Jan 2015 15:21:52
Fernando Pacheco on a loan until the end of the season may have become even more quiet, but it is still going on and is looking increasingly likely as Konstantopolous turns 37, we have Mejias as our back up at the moment and Karanka is concerned that if we get promoted, how will they cope?.

I know we still have Ripley, but he still needs experience, as that is beneficial to both him and the club, look at how Reach and Gibson turned out, an influential duo who play a significant part in Karanka's future plans.

Niguez (also known as Jony) is a younger kind of version of Whitehead is way past his peak, whereas Muniz is a more all-rounded midfielder.

14 Jan 2015 15:24:07
My mate from whom I get my information was here and I put the above names to him. Pacheco remains a target but Ivan Perez Munoz advises that Mejias outshone Pacheco at Madrid, my friend wouldn't be surprised if we swooped for a more experienced goalie whilst he knows Aitor to be an admirer of Muniz and Niguez but not interested in signing either yet (I must stress the yet apparently). He has heard nothing of Cairney but says it could be possible. There is no interest in Oikonomou though my friend is an admirer of his, Karanka has no awareness of the player. Fran Merida deal could be back on after Milos Veljkovic's loan extension failed.

15 Jan 2015 07:08:38
Fernando Pacheco is a younger keeper than Mejias, and Mejias hasn't really proven himself to be an adequate keeper who will be able to replace Konstantopolous in the near future.

Oikonomou is a 22 year old central defender who is well known by Dimi Konstantopolous as they have played in the Greece National acedemy side together, (Oikonomou was just 16 then).

Cairney is a target that is going under the radar as there has been hardly, or no mention at all, yet it is a likely possibility he could arrive in Teesside considering Veljkovic has went back to Spurs, and Whitehead seemingly past his peak and seems to be more fitted to our right back role, thus leaving just Clayton, Leadbitter and our young future prospect Bryn Morris as our only Centre midfielders. Muniz and Niguez are also potential targets to arrive in teesside.

Extra: I've been reading the Evening Gazette and it is suggested that an Emerson-type of midfielder is set to arrive on Teesside. Anyone got any idea who this could be?

15 Jan 2015 16:19:09
Oikonomou and Dimi did not play together in the Greek youth teams because Dimi would have been ineligible to do so six years ago as he would have been 31. Furthermore, Cairney is not someone who the club have expressed an interest in but I personally would love to see him at the Riverside. Muniz and Niguez cannot be called targets yet as Boro have no interest in actually signing them, but Karanka does admire the players. As for the Emerson article in the gazette you have misunderstood. If Pacheco does come in it will be if/when Mejias departs so Pacheco can be second choice goalkeeper

I meant like player/coach type, you know what I mean, sorry about that little mix up.
And no I have not misunderstood the Emerson article as Karanka is looking for a loanee who can replace Milos Veljkovic.
I think everyone would love Tom Cairney at the Riverside! He is a good player and even though it is not out with the media, Karanka isn't impressed with Mejias, so is considering whether it'll be more beneficial to send him out on loan to free up wages or to sell him permanently to free the transfer budget up as well as the wages. What would you do if you were Karanka?

18 Jan 2015 16:35:23
Oh I thought you meant that their was some kind of friendship between the two Greeks. In fact, it's quite probable that the two have never met. The Emerson article was in no way a reference to any potential incomer, it was just to remember a fantastic player. Cairney, ideal signing. Karanka has said he will not sign a new first choice goalkeeper until the summer, but if whether Mejias is sold or loaned out, Pacheco would be the replacement second choice. If I were Karanka I'd pack the poor lad back of to Spain where he is more comfortable

12 Jan 2015 19:36:17
Rotherham forward Jonson Clarke Harris will sign for Millwall, possibly in a straight swap for defender Mark Beevers

13 Jan 2015 19:23:51
This is not true and as for beevers he is out for up to 3 weeks so ant going anywhere

12 Jan 2015 15:23:17
Guiseleys oli Johnson to Rotherham

09 Jan 2015 13:08:10
Millwall will attempt to rescue the deal to bring Rotherham Star player Ben Pringle to the den after the deal collapsed last night after the South London club had had a bid of £175,000 accepted by the Yorkshire side. The lions had offered more money but the winger wanted a longer deal and the lions could be willing to add another year to the deal to push the deal through to get there man

09 Jan 2015 20:54:46
Millwall CEO Andy Ambler is to meet with with Ben Pringle to discuss another contract offer to gt the Winger to sign for the lions before the end of the transfer window

10 Jan 2015 04:30:21
Think millwall should buy amr zaki only 30 lol

10 Jan 2015 10:56:21
Wolves or Preston likely destinations, the player does not fancy London refused all contract offers at RUFC so will be sold this window

12 Jan 2015 01:03:27
Being a Miller, I don't care where he goes, just as long as he goes!, one thing he aint, is a loss! so please take him anybody :)

07 Jan 2015 19:29:05
Rotherham have had a bid of around 200k accepted by Millwall for defender Mark Beevers. The deal is expected to be completed by the end of the week

08 Jan 2015 18:45:39
No chance. He will cost at least 500k

That is such a lie. Wouldn't let him go to a club who is battling for survival like us. Easily worth 1 mil

21 Dec 2014 16:04:24
Lewis Macleod set to join rotherham for a 1mill fee. if this is true I hope he is good :)

We need a goalscorer not another central midfielder

We need to sell pringle too and get a proper left winger :)

{Ed003's Note - never realised you was a Rotherham fan Sail your doing ok in the correct score comp btw :) }

Macleod joining brentford for 1 million
