Aston Villa Reportedly Make Tiago Ilori Loan Offer

Reliable journalists connected to the club have broken news of another potential loan move for Tiago Ilori. Tiago Ilori has become a new deadline day star. The 22-year-old was strongly linked with a move to Sunderland but is now a target of Tim Sherwood's Aston Villa. Journalists with close ties to the Liverpool have broken news of a possible loan move for a defender who needs to play at this stage of his development. It is heartening to know that Ilori appears to be considering moves to the Premier League. Loans to clubs in La Liga and Ligue 1 are all well and good, but if Ilori is to play...

Everton on transfer deadline day

Will Roberto pull off any late deals? We knew Everton would leave it late, but this late? Welcome to transfer deadline day summer 2015, and it needs to be a busy one if Everton are going to be well equipped for the season ahead. So what deals are rumoured? Well River Plate's Funes Mori has agreed a move to Everton and watched last week's defeat against Man City but issues with his work permit have delayed the deal. Everton remain confident that all the relevant paperwork will be in place, but should the deal fall through it would leave them with precious little time to find an...

Spurs still hopeful of adding striker, reopen transfer talks

Will this never end? I bet you thought you weren't going to hear anything about Tottenham Hotspur's continued pursuit of Saido Berahino today. Then again, maybe it was all you expected to hear about. If it was the latter, then you are correct. The London Evening Standard are reporting that Spurs and Berahino's current club, West Bromwich Albion are set to re-open transfer discussions today. This has been a long an excruciating saga, which has seen the West Midlands club reject two different offers from Spurs for the England U-21 striker and then public criticize Tottenham for their...

West Ham reject Tottenham's bid for Kouyate

Ugh... You can add another player to the list of Tottenham Hotspur bids being turned down. According to the Daily Mail, Spurs offered £15 million for West Ham United midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate only to have that bid rejected on the spot. We learned of interest in the player yesterday when The Sun reported that Spurs were looking at Kouyate to improve their midfield depth. West Ham have apparently told Spurs that Kouyate is not for sale at any price. We'll see if Tottenham increase their offer and if the Hammers stand by that statement. It's no secret that the club have explored many...

Spurs midfielder ruled out of international qualifiers through injury

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele was stretchered off this weekend during the club's match with Everton. The player looked to have turned his ankle pretty badly following a nifty little cut-back in the penalty box. Dembele, apparently, traveled to Brussles to meet up with his Belgium teammates, but afer having a scan on the injured ankle, he was replaced in the squad by Steven Defour. Honestly, it's a little weird that Spurs just sent Dembele to Belgium without conducting their own scan of his ankle. It's unlikely that any scan was able to be done on Sunday, but before Dembele got...

Williamson move from Newcastle may not be permanent

Preferred Media Partners™ Sky Sports News have suggested that a move for Mike Williamson away from St. James' Park may not be a permanent one. We're still being fed a steady diet of "Newcastle United won't be active on transfer deadline day" by Sky Sports while they for some reason leave one of their reporters at the NUFC training facility.  Understanding that Sky Sports have paid the money to be Super BFFs with the club (Preferred Media Partners, I guess) and combining that with the fact that in previous windows we couldn't even get a sniff of an on-location report, we can surmise...

Adeabyor and Levy in epic stare-down over wages as transfer deadline looms

After failing to move on Emmanuel Adebayor for what fears like the last three seasons, it appears it may come down to a deadline day dogfight between Aston Villa and West Ham for the striker's services. Yesterday, former Tottenham Hotspur manager and current Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood was linked with a loan move for Adebayor. The player, however, seems most interested in a move to West Ham. Adebayor still hopeful of a move to West Ham, although he won't compromise on his 100k-a-wk.

Aston Villa transfer news: Berbatov deal does not need to happen today

Aston Villa and Dimitar Berbatov have been linked for most of the summer. That doesn't have to end today. Dimitar Berbatov flashed onto the radar of Aston Villa fans in late July when it was first rumoured that he could be joining the club. Then we heard nothing for ages and I think that most of us forgot about the rumour. So it came as a bit of a shock today to see it reignited by Sky Sports and the Express. These rumours may very well be a simple rehash of something that popped up a month ago, and I'm not sure that a move for the 34-year-old Bulgarian striker actually is going to...

#BushWatch returns...

Sky Sports News, the BBC live blog, Charles Watts twitter updates and us here at the Tilehurst End may all be part of recent deadline day tradition but the day wouldn't be complete without #BushWatch If you're unfamiliar with BushWatch then where have you been? The hashtag comes from the acitivies of former TTE ref-watch maestro Jacob South Klein who regularly pitches up to the Madejski Stadium on deadline day to try and get the scoop on the transfer deals before they happen. His most notable experience so far was getting the this priceless reaction from former Reading boss Nigel Adkins on...

Spurs chairman apologizes to Marseille over Lamela loan collapse

/in an uncharacteristic turn, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has apologized to his cohorts at Olympique Marseille following the collapse of the transfer of Erik Lamela. According to La Provence, Levy pulled out due to being unable to complete a deal for Saido Berahino prior to selling West Brom. It's believed that if Lamela had been sold or loaned, then the price for Berahino would have skyrocketed. Last night, it was believed that manager Mauricio Pochettino was the one who blocked the deal or perhaps it was l'OM's fault because they had too many players on loan. Now, it appears...

Aston Villa transfer news: West Ham deal erases opportunity for Moses signing

Victor Moses has signed a year-long loan at West Ham and that ends that rumour for Aston Villa. It's not often that West Ham transfer news merits a mention here, but that's deadline day for you. Just last week there were rumours that Victor Moses might be heading to Aston Villa. Moses isn't all that well-loved by Chelsea fans, but simply because you're not Chelsea standard doesn't mean that you wouldn't be a good fit at most of the other teams in the Premier League. But the move is not meant to be, as West Ham have signed Moses to a year-long loan just a few minutes after Chelsea locked...

Sunderland Interested in José Enrique

Sunderland have entered a race with West Brom for the services of Liverpool's "alienated" left back. José Enrique seemed headed to West Bromwich Albion to discuss personal terms and do medical things after Liverpool agreed a deal for the Spanish defender, but late drama as arrived in the form of Sunderland. The Wearside club seem determined to add Liverpool player's to the struggling squad, and after a move for Tiago Ilori breaking down, Enrique is wanted. Deadline day does wonderful things. It can make big clubs look awfully inept and transform unwanted players into the transfer market's...

Spurs winger nears deadline day exit

Transfer rumors relating to Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon have been few and far between this summer. The main link has been with Everton, but the Toffees have spent much of the summer focusing on other additions, likely in the belief that a deal for Lennon could be concluded on deadline day. It appears that deal is now coming to fruition for a somewhere in the neighborhood of £5 million, Numerous sources have Lennon returning to Merseyside where he spent a fairly successful half season on loan last year. Everton could certainly use the pacy winger, particularly after Tom Cleverly,...

Aston Villa likely to make loan move for defender

Aston Villa are apparently ready to send Nathan Baker out on loan. It may take some dominoes falling, but Aston Villa defender Nathan Baker looks set to head out on loan today. According to the Birmingham Mail the move is contingent upon Villa successfully signing Joleon Lescott from West Bromwich Albion. That move is expected to come some time today and would free up space for Baker to head out for a season. Why does manager Tim Sherwood want to loan out Baker? Well, if Gregg Evans is to be believed, it's for the most hilarious of reasons: "Boss Tim Sherwood tied Baker down to a...

Wanyama joins up with Kenya casting doubt on possible transfer

Another one bites the dust? Bad news for any of you Tottenham Hotspur fans holding out hope for the signing of Victor Wanyama. The Southampton midfielder has left the country to join up with his national team Kenya, according to Lyall Thomas of Sky Sports. It was thought that Wanyama would be a possible holding midfield transfer target for Spurs after the player reportedly asked to leave St. Mary's. Now that he's left the country any transfer involving him would have to be completed without a medical taking place. Any move regarding a player of Wanyama's talent will likely involve a hefty...

Michael Hector To The Champions?

A couple of weeks ago Michael Hector was linked with a move to Crystal Palace and while that could still happen, he could be set for an even bigger stage at Chelsea. Could Michael Hector be leaving the Madejski Stadium today? Sky Sports News are reporting that Crystal Palace are still interested in signing a defender although who that is is still unknown. The Guaridan first reported Palace's interest in Reading's vice-captain a couple of weeks ago but since then there's been few mentions of Hector with regards to a move. Now it seems as if Hector could be a shock target for Premier League...

Andriy Yarmolenko: Liverpool's Transfer Deadline Day Surprise?

A £14.5 million move is rumoured to be on the cards. Tiago Ilori is not going to Sunderland, José Enrique is close to becoming a West Bromwich Albion player, but what about that transfer deadline day stunner that excites loyal Reds? How on earth can Liverpool recover from such a humiliation at the hands of West Ham United on Merseyside? Buy a player with only hours remaining in the summer transfer window! There is no better way to "make a statement" and "splash the cash" than scampering around a fax machine with time running out. If only there was a player who could invite fans to click...

Newcastle won't let in demand attacker go to Spurs

A new strike target popped up for Tottenham Hotpsur yesterday evening in the form of Ayoze Perez. Now, Newcastle sources are rubbishing the suggestion that the would let the Spaniard go at any price, let alone the rumored £15 million. The Tyneside club will not be selling Perez to Spurs, or any other club. Perez joined Newcastle last season for just over £1.5 from Tenerife. The Magpies beat out competition from some of Europe's biggest club's for the strikers signature and after some good performances last season, bigger clubs appear to be knocking on the door for Perez again.

Crystal Palace boss Pardew looking to transfer Newcastle defender

Paul Dummett was a Pardew favorite when the Palace boss was at St. James' Park and rumors now suggest that Pardew is looking for a reunion with the Geordie left back at Selhurst Park. Transfer Deadline Day brings funny rumors and stories that don't necessarily make sense, but with Newcastle United you just never really know if decisions are made within the constraints of "making sense".  The latest rumor from The Chronicle is suggesting that former boss Alan Pardew is readying a bid for a former favorite of his from his time at St. James' Park.

Dimitar Berbatov in talks with Villa

Sky Sports and The Express are reporting that Dimitar Berbatov is finalising his move to Aston Villa right now. Don't call it a comeback, we've been in for him for.. years? Dimitar Berbatov's potential move to Aston Villa is only beaten in longevity by Adebayor's, which as come back from the dead more times than MJ in Thriller. Sky Sports and The Express are waving their 'It's Happening' flags. Berbatov's move as well as Ade's looked to be dead in the water after the signings of Rudy Gestede and Jordan Ayew, but from this news (and the Dwight Gayle rumour), it would look that Tim Sherwood...
