Monday transfer news

I've only got a maximum of eight more of these late night round ups left to do, which is a relief.
  • The Times' 'Window Watch' says that Steve Harper's new contract offer means that Shay Given will be coming to City in the new future. Given and his representatives are due to meet NUFC managing director Derek Llambias today (Monday) to discuss his wish to move. City are apparently willing to meet the £10million asking price (which makes you wonder what exactly the point was of bidding £3m in the first place). But I hope we get him and it looks like we will.
  • This is backed up in The Independent. "The indications are" that Given will be leaving, whatever that means. They mention a bid of £7million plus either Onuoha or Johnson. And an arrangement whereby Given can't play on Wednesday. Which sounds fair enough.
