Tabloid Corner

Tabloid Corner

With no transfer news of interest to Wolves on the immediate horizon, we take a look around the other clubs to see whose moving where, and whose up to what.

Martin Jol and Tottenham seem to be having a fairly busy time. Ahead of the pack to sign Theo Walcott for, wait for it, nine million pounds in The Star, attempting to beat Liverpool to Daniel Agger in The Sun and the Mirror, BOTH stories are in the Express, only The Mail has decided they are not worthy of ink today. Thats it Martin,keep buying. And get rid of the ones you have now. You don't need Tom. You've got plenty of cover.

Depending which flavour redtop you prefer, West Brom are either considering, or have rejected a Southampton swap involving Nigel Quashie and David Prutton going one way and Robbie Earnshaw going the other. Poor old Earnie. Frozen out at his club, who wont play him, but who wont release him either. With Kanu about to join the Nigerian squad, Robson's resolve is set to get even stronger which may well see Earnshaw sit the season out as a spare, in case someone else gets broke, whilst other clubs scramble around for a striker. I bet Bryan never shared his toys at Christmas, either.

If Tottenham arent buying them, Portsmouth are. Today list reads Norwich keeper Robert Green , Spurs trio Sean Davis, Noe Pamarot and Pedro Mendes, Glen Johnson, Middlesbrough keeper Mark Schwarzer, and Frank Lampard. Ok. I made the last one up. Portsmouth seem to be on a signing frenzy in a bid to stay up, and who can blame them? Millions poured into the club by a russian benefactor, giving them great spending potential that will of course not be greeted with the same vitriol as Roman's Roubles at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea were buying the title. Portsmouth are only buying survival. Theres a difference, see?

The Star believe Nicolas Anelka wants to join Graeme's Gang at Newcastle, a story which if it came to fruition, could have some serious tabloid legs with Manager and player both well known for their level headed temperaments.

The Express has Neil Warnock refusing to meet Dave Jones' valuation of Cardiiff's Cameron Jerome. City have put a price tag of three million on young Cameron that Colin thinks too steep. A good line coming from a club that just offered Wolves £1.5 mill for a player about to go out of contract.The price tag would also appear to rule Wolves out of the running as well for a player many believe will go on to great things

Gossip column favourite Gary Flitcoft makes the right kind of tabloid headlines for a change, moving from Blackburn to join Sheffield United for free. Not quite Cameron Colin, but its a start.Sheffield are also said to be chasing Ade Akinbye for £1.5mill. Another mover is defender David Thompson sold to Wigan from Blackburn for £250,000.

No news for Wolves fans, but Glenn Hoddle 's transfer dealings tend to be cloaked in secrecy, with an unveiling when the deal is done. Personaly,that seems to be a far more satisfactory manner of doing business. True, it's not quite as exciting as being linked with every player available, but I'll pass that small pleasure if it means Wolves can continue to sign players of a high calibre, for a sensible price
