It`s been a while since I did a rumours thread, and since that time we`ve moved on from “silly season” to “bat s*** crazy summer”.

After a couple of rumours actually had some meat on them (a couple of which panned out, one still on going and the other fell by the wayside) we`re now back to the style of rumours we can usually expect for the most past ?. Complete and utter nonsense.

But I know some of you out there still love a good rumour, so who am I not to try and cater to all our readership?

Let`s begin with a possible outgoing. This one actually makes a lot of sense and will probably come to pass in one form or another as Newcastle and Southampton look to battle it out to secure the loan signature of Serge Gnabry.

I think this would be a good move for the promising youngster and would much rather see him going to Southampton, a club that continually produces and nurtures great young talent than to Pardew`s Newcastle ?. Which has Pardew in charge.

Next we have the news that Atletico Madrid`s right-back Javi Manquillo is set to snub us for Liverpool. OH NO!!!!

In all honesty having just secured Mathieu Debuchy have we any real need for this guy unless The Boss has plans to move Carl Jenkinson on? Probably not. But at least it would give the Scousers something to get their knickers in a twist over. I mean, it`s not like we just beat them to one of the finest players in the world now is it?

The Mail has us bidding on Matija Nastasic
from Manchester City should we lose Vermaelen to Man Utd. Young decent defender at a reasonable price. Would be a good piece of business but I`m doubting whether City would sell to us, they`d much rather move him aboard if they want to sell at all.

For one last rumour for today, apparently David Ospina has agreed to a 4 year deal at Arsenal.

Well it`s on Goal.com so it must be true.

Well that`s enough nonsense for today.

See you again next time.
