10 Deals that WON’T happen on Transfer Deadline Day

Transfer Deadline Day is now one of the most eagerly anticipated days in the British football calender since the introduction of the Transfer Window.

But whilst Shaun Maloney’s move to Wigan may come off, and Shaun Wright-Phillips may well get his ‘big move’ to QPR, there are many more deals (a.k.a. made up rumours) that won’t.

Here we’ve taken a tongue-in-cheek look at just a few of them…

1 ) Marc Overmars in talks with Arsenal about a possible return

2 ) Romario close to signing for Bolton to fill the void left by Johan Elmander

3 ) Karl Fletcher spotted leaving Harchester United’s ground after agreeing a deal with Man City

4 ) Rivaldo‘s father and agent spotted having a cup of tea with Dave Whelan at DW Stadium

5 ) Michael Reiziger is being lined up by Arsene Wenger as cover for Bacary Sagna

6 ) Fabrizio Ravenelli spotted on Tyneside

7 ) Paul Gascoigne signs one year contract with Newcastle

8 ) Pavel Nedved reported to be having a medical at QPR

9 ) Ruud Gullit is being lined up by Harry Redknapp as possible replacement for Luka Modric

10 ) Bixente Lizarazu in talks with Norwich about a possible one-year deal
