Possible top ten BPL's transfer for next season

1) Ashley Young, Aston Villa to Manchester United
United first contacted Villa about the versatile forward before Christmas and I am told it is now virtually a done deal. Despite interest from Man City, Young should complete a move costing around £15million to the champions in early June. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is expected to overhaul his squad this summer with around five or six players going in and out. I've also heard Michael Owen will leave United on a free and is looking for a new club.

2) Scott Dann, Birmingham to Tottenham
Dann's hamstring injury is one of the reasons Birmingham got relegated because they missed him so badly. He is now nearly fit though and I am told by a St Andrews insider that Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is a big fan. Redknapp will surely need some new centre-backs this summer too, with Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King nearly always injured and Sebastien Bassong unhappy.

3) Cesc Fabregas, Arsenal to Barcelona
Not a huge shock this one as everyone knows Fabregas loves Barca. Sounds like this is the summer it will finally happen though because apparently Man City enquired about Fabregas' availability and were supposedly told he is back off to his native Spain.

4) Andres Iniesta, Barcelona to Man City
With Fabregas finally off to Spain it appears, that could make talented Spanish midfielder Iniesta surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp. City have links with Barca after signing Yaya Toure last summer and I've been told they could get the 27-year-old with a bumper bid.

5) Scott Parker, West Ham to Arsenal
My ex-Birmingham contacts at Upton Park tell me Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool all want to sign the Hammers' talisman and FAW player of the year after West Ham's relegation. He could be just the leader Arsenal need and I think Parker would prefer to stay in London, so he may well end up at the Emirates.

6) Gareth Barry, Man City to Tottenham
I know Barry from his excellent spell at Villa Park and he is a really good bloke and an excellent footballer who has been very effective at Eastlands. But now I am hearing he is likely to be sold by Roberto Mancini this summer as they have some other bigger-profile midfielders coming in, like potentially Iniesta. Redknapp is a firm admirer having tried to sign Barry previously while at Portsmouth and the star and his family are Spurs fans ,so I can see him going to White Hart Lane to pep up their midfield options with Wilson Palacios and Jermaine Jenas likely to leave this summer.

7) Gary Cahill, Bolton to Arsenal
A pal at Blackpool tells me England stopper Cahill, 25, was going through the motions against them recently in the Seasiders' 4-3 victory. Apparently he has a £15million summer move lined up and the talk of the dressing rooms was he is off to the Emirates to bolster Arsene Wenger's shaky defence. Talking of Bloomfield Road, I've also heard David Vaughan is nailed on for Sunderland on a Bosman despite just spending £1.5m on a house near his native Crewe - what a hard life these footballers have!

8) Andy Johnson, Fulham to West Brom.
AJ has dropped off the radar at Craven Cottage following a horrendous time with injuries. But Albion boss Roy Hodgson knows what the striker is capable of after paying Everton £10million for the former England forward in August 2008. Now I have heard Hodgson will be reunited with Johnson at The Hawthorns for a fee of around £4m.

9) Cameron Jerome, Birmingham to Stoke
Potters boss Tony Pulis is a big fan of the muscular, quick Jerome despite the forward's lack of goals this season. I expect Jerome to be sold this summer if Carson Yeung is offered decent money for the 24-year-old following City's relegation. Brum have already got an eye on Marlon Harewood on a free to replace him.

10) Wayne Hennessey, Wolves to Manchester City
A bit of a long shot this one as Wolves will be hard to do business with following their survival but City have the money and want a talented young keeper to compete with England's Joe Hart for years to come. Might be worth an outside bet that Hennessey returns to the club where he was a trainee once.
