Anelka straight in, Redknapp straight out, and Fred right man for Spurs

Nicolas Anelka is straight into the Chelsea squad for the game against Spurs after his 15 million pound move, and guess what? He's vowed to stay at Chelsea for the rest of his career. Yeah right Nic, we've heard it all before....

Tottenham have topped all offers for Lyon striker Fred with a cool 11 million pound bid. Clearly preparing for one of their four strikers to move on, they have substantially outbid Portsmouth and Paris Saint-Germain. However it appears Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, has told Fred to pick his club, even though the Paris Saint-Germain bid is as low as 7 million.

Harry Redknapp is in talks with Newcastle about his imminent move. He went to an office in London's Bond Street, and met with Paul Kemsley, along with the agent Dennis Roach and Chris Mort, the Newcastle chairman. However Mike Ashley was absent, being in the Far East on business, which complicates things as Redknapp is thought to be keen to speak to Ashley before concluding the deal. Things should be tied up by the middle of next week.
