Transfer rumours

Another slow week in the transfer market, with news that players such as Villa, Silva, Eto'o and Robinho will probably all be staying put. In fact the biggest move was that of Arizmendi to second division Zaragoza, the Spanish international forward accepting that he won't get much of a look in if the two Davids are staying. Diego Milito may go the other way to lighten the load of a squad which would more than hold it's own in the top flight, but so far there are only rumours. Many of the smaller teams though are waiting for the bigger ones to drop their prices of their discards, with less than two weeks to go now until the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
