September 2012 Transfer Spotlight
Welcome to the extended edition of Transfer Spotlight! So far two of our stars have already agreed to make the move in the up and coming January Transfer Window. Ole Gunnar Balmjar is off to Rangers in a deal which has cost the Scottish club a massive £1.2mil!!! Rangers are looking to build their team around Balmjar and hope he will commit to the club for the long term. Steve Duffy also made his way to Scotland to join Aberdeen in a deal that cost the Scottish Premier League club £1mil. Aberdeen are currently struggling at the lower end of the table and will be looking to Duffy to make the impact to propel them up the table!
Andrew Jackson has been attracting all sorts of attention since the start of the season due to his brilliance on the pitch between the sticks. Scouts were seen at Portadown's training ground yesterday and it seems Everton boss David Moyes may be interested in signing the young goalkeeper. -
John Johnson appeared to be receiving a lot of interest at the beginning of the month, but nothing has been heard recently, probably due to struggling with Strained Knee Ligaments. -
Brendan O'Shaugnessy has recently stated that he has no idea where the future will take him, but reports suggest he may be staying at Bohemians for the short term at least with the youngster not attracting any interest yet, but he is getting a decent amount of time on the pitch and will probably benefit staying at his current club. -
David Ginsberg has recently handed in a transfer request to Rosenborg and nobody can really blame him after being left out of the first team constantly. Rosenborg boss 'Per Joar Hansen' has expressed his regret at David Ginsberg's decision and has called for the youngster to stay at the club for the long term. The club have accepted the transfer request but has said that they will not sell for cheap. Several clubs have already expressed their desire to sign the youngster, with interest coming from teams such as Udinese, Chievo, Lazio, HSV, Furth, Everton, Newcastle and Norwich. It has also been suggested that Liverpool may be looking into signing the centre back, but with no bids on the table yet, nothing is a sure thing! -
Eric Corwyn has had a decent start to his career at Llanelli, but other clubs are yet to pay attention as the young left back continues to impress. -
Karl Llewelly has really struggled to perform of late and people are starting to speculate the Bangor City are growing impatient with his lacklustre performances -
Peter MacAndreys is becoming well known for his antics on the pitch, especially after his recent display where he scored a goal and then got sent off. Stoke City have made it known this week that they are very interested in signing the young Irish midfielder. -
Conor Swain will most probably be staying with Cliftonville for the moment with recent comments suggesting he is commited to the cause and would rather work on improving his performances. -
Maximus Spartacus is definately struggling in Norway at the moment, but has still managed to pick up some game time for the first team at Aalesund and reports suggest that he may well be staying put, with only slight interest coming from a couple of teams over in France. -
Joel Hochstetter has already rejected a move to the MLS this season, but Sporting Kansas City are back with another offer! It is believed that the package contains a £2,000,000 transfer fee, but it is the contract offer that may well pursuade Joel Hochstetter. Over in Scotland, Rangers have also made a move for the brilliant winger. -
Ronhaar has had an immense start to the season for Llanelli, but despite being scouted by several clubs in England, it seems they are waiting to see more performances from the explosive winger. -
Conan O'Tarkan is one of the hottest properties at the moment and several clubs are looking to try and bring him in. It is believed that Arsenal have already made a move to try and bring him in early before anyone else, but there are bids amongst teams such as West Ham, Brighton, Ajax, Udinese and Parma! With things hotting up, Crusaders will be looking for O'Tarkan to cool things down a little bit and commit to the club. -
Ryan Giggs Jr has been attracting a lot of attention, but so far only one club has approached the Welsh wizard and it is now down to Giggsy Jr to figure out what's best. The club in question is believed to be either Hull City or Qpr. -
Henning Belvand has slated his club Rosenborg in a recent statement which can be found in a Norweigan newspaper called Marca. He has stated his desire to leave and the club have swiftly accepted the request. Despite being transfer listed, Henning Belvand has only received interest from Belgium side Zulte Waregem and high flying Npower league 1 side Sheffield United. Sources close to Henning Belvand have suggested he may wait it out and look for a bigger move. -
Geraint Alacarde has been in amazing form so far this season for Bohemians and it looks like they will do everything in their power to keep Geraint at the club, it is believed that they have offered a new contract to end any speculation that he may well move in January. -
Jack Price has sparked a huge amount of interest with his earlier comments about missing his family in England. Despite his comment towards only moving to Ipswich town, several clubs have made moves to try and get a transfer in motion! Ipswich Town were obviously the first to make a move, but the manager has had to make a request to the board to allow him extra funds due to being over the wage budget. Norwich City have also made moves as they plan to stay in the Premier League, which looks extremely likely with the brilliant start to the season. Qpr are also interested, along with Fulham, Brighton, Huddersfield Town and Leeds United! It seems that St. Pats Athletic will have a lot of work to do to keep their young star, despite the youngster admitting it may be hard to leave just yet. -
Lincoln Howard may well be on his way to Scotland if reports are true. Rangers have apparently made a big to bring him to Scotland in a £1,000,000 deal! -
Ceri Pritchard has had a shocking start for TNS, but it is suggested he will keep working hard and try to improve as the season goes on.
