'Project' lured Bellamy to Manchester City

From the golf club wielded at John Arne Riise while at Liverpool to the inaccurate recent claims that he went on strike when West Ham refused to sell him, Craig Bellamy has the kind of history which, as he so impressively put it yesterday, would make the appropriate title for his biography 'Don't Google Me.'

Kinnear hints at Riise for Newcastle loan deal

The former Liverpool defender John Arne Riise, now at Roma, emerged yesterday as one of the two "£10m" players from Italy whom Newcastle caretaker manager Joe Kinnear wishes to bring on loan in January, should Kinnear still be at St James' Park then.

Transfer news and speculation, 19 June

Kia Joorabchian yesterday insisted that the Brazilian striker Jo, who is wanted by Manchester City, is fully-owned by the Russian club, CSKA Moscow. Joorabchian refuted claims that the proposed transfer flouted the Premier League rules which state third-party ownership is not allowed. In the case of £18m-rated Jo it is understood that CSKA have ownership but would have to pay 20 per cent of any sell-on fee to his former club Corinthians and to a South American investor. Joorabchian argues that such agreements are similar to those in other players with so-called "sell-on" contract clauses.
