Title has all the information you need, so I guess there's no need for me to say anything further. :)

SWP to City has already been covered quite well so I'll leave that except to say it's official & good luck to him.

In other transfer news Massimo Oddo has packed his bags & moved to Munich. He joins Bayern on a 1 year loan deal, which may be made permanent.

The arrival of Gianluca Zambrotta made it clear he was surplus to requirement & I, for one, am sad. I think he's a good right back if given the chance.

Also in related news promising young German International left back Marcell Jansen has surprised many by leaving Bayern for rival Hamburger SV.

He claims he was disappointed in Klinnsman, who hasn't made the best of starts as Manager of the Bavarian giants.

Combined with some lackluster results this is a blow for Bayern & Klinnsman who is looking increasingly likely to be out of work before he even begins.

After meeting with Klinnsman, Jansen decided a move would be in his best interest robbing Bayern of a highly promising youngster

who I believe could be as good as Lahm in a few years time. So it seems Lahm will be moving back to the left allowing Oddo to slot in at right back.

Of less importance to most but of more importance to anybody who still calls Australia home, like myself, is news of Vince Grella.

The midfield tough man will be moving from Torino to Blackburn for a fee of €5.5m, ending his 9 year affair with the Serie A.

At the age of 28 his career has already seen him play for Empoli, Ternana & Parma before his last season at Torino.

It would appear Ince is looking for someone to anchor his midfield partnering David Dunn or the yet to play Carlos Villanueva in the middle.

Right. Moving on Thiago Motta. After being linked with Everton & a number of other clubs Portsmouth have thrown their hat in the ring.

Losing Muntari has hit them hard & their search for a replacement has taken them to Spain. Madrid more specifically.

have revealed they are close to agreeing a deal for the Atletico Madrid man with a touch of class and knees of glass.

In stranger news, despite his free scoring form, Egyptian wunderkind Mido does not feature in Gareth Southgate's plans.

Correspondingly when Wigan boss Steve Bruce faxed through an official offer for the striker both Mido & Southgate were willing to oblige.

Nothing concrete yet but a 1 year loan deal has been put on the table & both parties are in agreement since Southgate prefer Alves & Tuncay up front.

After a lack of transfer activity, much to the chagrin of David Moyes Everton are finally picking up the pace.

Young striker Victor Obinna has been signed by Mourinho at Inter Milan from Chievo & immediately loaned to Everton for 1 year.

In other news we are all aware of Shevchenko going back to Milan. :)

Ever Banega has joined Atletico Madrid on a one year loan from Valencia.

Valencia are closing in on Real Zaragoza & Argentina striker Diego Milito.

Arsenal, Wenger, really, is interested in a young French midfielder Blaise Matuidi who plays for St Etienne & France U21's.

Also hot on the heels of signing Jansen rumor has it Thiago Neves, one of the few bright lights for Brazil in Beijng, is on his way to fill the void

left by Van De Vaart's leaving for Madrid at Hamburger SV.
