Okay, will try to update as best as possible:
Demba Ba - Looks like this will either to come to fruition or fall through in the next 36 hours. Rumor I have heard says that Demba wants to come to Everton, but wages are a sticking point at the moment. With other clubs armed with cash like Newcastle, this might get ugly.
Leon Osman - So it seems that there really was an offer, but it was turned down. Thank God. Leon Osman is a proper blue and needs to be kept around.
Leighton Baines - This rumor has gone cold, but expect Baines to be linked with any and everybody because he is a bad ass. People look at the Rooney deal and just assume that we grow talent to sell it for a profit later. No dice!
