Transfer News

There will be some to disbelieve, and some to doubt, and yet a few who will find much to ponder upon in the rumours here graven with... well, with a keyboard.

As I write, Pardew is supposedly rapping on Bastia's chamber door, in the hope of signing Pascal Chimbonda for evermore (or alternatively, a two-year deal). The 26 year old midfielder is apparently seeking a move to England and Pardew is requesting an obligation-free-quote from the French outfit. Clearly the East End of London is far more appealing than the Meditteranean island of Corsica.

There's also a ridiculous rumour that West Ham are in talks with Luis Figo. With wage demands of £60k a week plus a daily cask of Amontillado and a trowel, it just ain't gonna happen.

Fulham have purloined Heidur Helguson. Chris Coleman has beaten off about five other clubs (including - wait for it! - the Black Cats) in a scramble for the Icelandic striker, who cost him
£1.3 million. Supposedly he couldn't come to personal terms with the Irons, despite West Ham having agreed a fee with Watford.

In pace requiescat!
