More Transfer Rumour Updates

Yeah I said this would be weekly, I pretty much knew that'd be wrong, and that the rumours would come thick and fast. Thanks to those who have "tipped" m off with some, a lot was utter tosh of course but amongst it is some stuff that looks remotely believable.


Alex John Baptiste

Local lad Baptiste playing for Blackpool has been linked this week, with it mainly being IF we get rid of Morgan. Baptiste from Ollerton in Nottinghamshire is believed to be a Forest fan. He spent a long while at Mansfield Town. "Bap" has just been out for 3 weeks, so I’m not sure if this rumour was simply started by someone noticing he wasn’t playing and piecing together information from there, but it has a certain amount of possible truth to it.

Rob Earnshaw

Not going to happen, but people persists in linking him with a return. The fact we couldn’t afford to pay his wages before, and now with tighter restrictions and him having a better paid contract now than what we'd offer pretty much rounds this point off.


Chris Gunter,

Instead of West Brom, Fulham is the new rumoured home for him, although contrary to some reports it wasn't Martin Jol who signed for Spurs as he had left a few months previous. Gunter is likely to fetch around £2million.

Ishmael Miller

Only been here a short while, but already being linked with a departure to Middlesbrough, who don’t mind overspending on wages for strikers, they've been doing that since the 90's anyway (ahh Ravanelli, Boksic, Boyd, McDonald,

Wes Morgan

Wes is refusing to sign a new deal apparently so the club may be open to offers to bring in some kind of fee. Seems ludicrous when we have no centre halves and Wes would probably be happy to stay till June to help the club. Plus can you really see Wes in any other teams shirt?
