Kelvin Close To Forest Return

 

Glasgow Celtic centre-back Kelvin Wilson is on the verge of a return to former club Nottingham Forest, two years after leaving the City Ground.

Despite being a regular for the majority of his stay in Scotland, Wilson feels ready to move back to his hometown club.

The powerful defender featured in 50 games across all competitions last season, contributing to a fine campaign in which Celtic won a league and cup double, as well as reaching the last-16 stage of the UEFA Champions League against all odds.

Celtic signed two additions to the back-line this summer and have enough cover to reluctantly allow fans’ favourite Wilson to leave.

Forest are attempting to build a side capable of challenging for automatic promotion under the motivational guidance of Billy Davies, also in his second spell with the former European Cup winners.

Wilson’s Champions League experience with Celtic will prove invaluable, as… Continue reading →

Middlesbrough Sign Adomah

Middlesbrough have moved to improve their squad after their disappointing two defeats to start their campaign against Leicester in the Championship before their shock Capital One Cup defeat to lowly Accrington Stanley has also put the pressure on manager Tony Mowbray to bring in new faces. As a result, he has signed Bristol City winger Albert Adomah for a fee of £1 million.

The Bristol City winger has been the subject of continuous transfer talk this summer as City’s relegation from the second tier of English football as they look to trim the wage bill. The skilful Ghanaian winger has attracted the interest of numerous Championship clubs with Wigan being linked with the midfielder, however it seems that Middlesbrough have made their move and will be hoping everything can be finalised before their game on Saturday.

Middlesbrough Make Move For McCormack

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray is set to seal a double deal for the club over the next few days.

Bristol City’s powerful winger Albert Adomah is pencilled in to undergo a medical ahead of a £1m move to the Riverside. All formalties should be completed within 24 hours, barring any last-minute hitches.

Meanwhile, Mowbray today offered to take Scottish forward Ross McCormack from Leeds United in a bid to bolster his options up front, with last season’s top scorer Scott McDonald now gone.

McCormack managed just seven goals last season, but hit eighteen the year before. The 26-year-old also struck against Brighton on the opening day of the new Championship campaign to get off the mark for his current side.

Middlesbrough desperately need attacking reinforcements after conceding nine goals more than they scored last time around. McCormack and Adomah represent proven quality at Championship level and appear ideal fits for… Continue reading →

Fulham Target Taarabt

 

Fulham manager Martin Jol has confirmed the club will sign Queens Park Rangers midfielder Adel Taarabt subject to a medical.

 

The Moroccan midfielder was originally brought to England by Jol when he was in charge of Tottenham Hotspur but he failed to break in to the first team. He spent time on loan at QPR before making a permanent move in a £1 million deal in 2010 while the club were in the Championship.

 

24-year-old Taarabt had a sublime season in England’s second tier but failed to find consistency last season as Rangers were relegated from the Premier League. He was left out of the squad for the opening game of this campaign against Sheffield Wednesday and Jol is set offer the enigmatic playmaker a route back into the English top flight, despite interest from French champions Paris St Germain.

 

Jol was talking in a press… Continue reading →

Queens Park Rangers managed Harry Redknapp has swooped to seal the deal for Gary O’Neil to join the Hoops on a free transfer after his release from West Ham. The Englishman rejected a new deal at Upton Park and had offers on the table before the QPR chief made his move.

The former Portsmouth and Middlesbrough midfielder who played under the Redknapp whilst plying his trade at Fratton Park becomes the club’s fifth summer signing after the captures of Richard Dunne, Danny Simpson, Karl Henry and yesterday’s addition of Charlie Austin.

The central midfielder will be a very good addition to the squad, through his versatility, his experience over the 340 games he has played in his career and his technical ability which saw him play in the top tier if English football.  With Queens Park Rangers still trying to offload players who are on mammoth wages from last season’s… Continue reading →
