yeah thats just been on Sky Sports News on TV as well. They say David Seaman has also retired.

Manchester City keeper David Seaman has retired from professional football.
The keeper damaged his shoulder on Saturday and was expected to be out for four weeks but it would appear the injury was one too many for the veteran shot stopper.

"I have reached this difficult decision after much discussion with my family and those in the game whose views I respect," he said.

"It has become clear to me that this type of injury will not quickly disappear and I think now would be a good time to hang up my boots, rather than at the end of the season as planned.

"I believe I have had a fantastic career playing at the highest level.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have stood by me and supported my career, especially during the tough times, the players who I will miss for their professionalism and friendship and the fans who have inspired my enthusiasm for the game."

The Citizens appear set to bring in an immediate replacement, with David James on the brink of a move to The City of Manchester Stadium, and Seaman feels Kevin Keegan has found the ideal successor.

"After deciding to retire it was a pleasure to recommend David James - so I know the position is in safe hands," continued Seaman. "I wish him all the best. He is joining a great club with a first class manager in Kevin Keegan and a great squad."

It would appear Seaman is keen to put his experience to good use, as he added: "I am looking forward to getting the shoulder better in order to explore potential goalkeeper coaching opportunities."

Keegan has heaped praise on the 75 times capped former England international.

"This has been a difficult decision for David but I fully respect it," said Keegan. "It says a lot about the man that he has been incredibly helpful to us as a club in finding a successor at such a testing personal time for him.

"His record is incredible and his achievements unbelievable but most importantly I will remember him as an ultimate professional who cared about others."
Nicky Butt to Middlesborough ?
As Ste asked, I checked the previous thread, and these are the only ones I could find that were correct. So moral of the story is : do not believe any of the rumours you hear !!
