Premier League Transfer News Part 2

Latest Premier League transfer news & speculation

Stories around Klass-Jan Huntelaar are beginning to gain momentum. Speculation has it that Tottenham, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all watched him score twice for Ajax against AZ Alkmaar on Sunday. Other Premier League clubs representated at the game were Blackburn Rovers and Sunderland.

Portsmouth are denying they are to sign Lassana Diarra from Arsenal for £5.5 million.

When will Middlesbrough learn? Fred the Lyon striker has been unable to agree personal terms with Paris Saint-Germain, or Tottenham, so guess what his next mooted destination is? Yes thats right, the home of the overpaid, non-scoring, foreign big-time charlie, Middlesbrough! Footy Focus reckons 80 grand a week and eight goals a season (3 of which will be against Halifax in the Carling Cup) is coming right up.

Talking of eight goal a season strikers, Tottenham Hotspur are willing to offers of around £12.5 million for Darren Bent. Bent has scored three goals in 14 appearances, half made from the substitutes' bench, since he moved for an initial £15.5 million from Charlton Athletic in the summer. To be fair to Bent, he hasn't really been given a chance at Tottenham and would certainly represent better value than Fred.

Elsewhere, Atl├ętico Madrid have entered the race to sign Momo Sissoko, the Liverpool midfield player, who is also wanted by Juventus

I am really hoping Huntelaar decides to come to the Premier League instead of Juventus cause he's amazing!
