It's all happening....

The most drawn out (and frankly dull) transfer saga of the summer so far could be nearing completion. Sol Campbell has promised a quick decision to Arsenal and the Gunners don't want talks to last too long - Arsene Wenger has said that he wants next seasons squad assembled within the next 4-weeks. Marc Overmars expressed his surprise that Sol may choose Arsenal over Barca - now I love Marc but he's really getting on my proverbial with all his 'come to Barca, it's brill!' rubbish he keeps spouting.

Another target for Wenger is Real Madrid's Cameroon full-back Geremi, he faces competition from Chelsea who have apparently agreed a fee with the Spanish champions.

Without wanting to sound like Arsenal are dominating news today, utility player Nelson Vivas has moved on after 3 seasons to Italian 'giants' Inter Milan on a free. Good luck to him, he never moaned and played alright when called on - a rarity in modern players.

Francis Jeffers has rejected a move to Newcastle - I don't blame him, with no disrespect to the Magpies it's hardly that much of a step up. Almost like Ugo Ehigou moving to Middlesbrough to further his England career.

Sunderland have signed 18 year old Turkish 'star' Baki Mercimek, dubbed the new Jaap Stam - surely a prerequisite to underacheivement - the youngster has signed a five year deal on a free from Dutch side Haarlem.

And finally...... party boy Dwight Yorke, spotted at several night clubs in Trinidad on Friday night, has been dropped from the Trinidad and Tobago squad. He really is a prat.
