Not sure if this is just an agent trying to 'position' a move for his player or not!
As we reported last weekend numerous articles have Villa being linked with Manchester City and former England full back Danny Mills.
Citeh have decided to allow Mills to leave for a fee of around £1million and David O'Leary is apparently interested in the 29-year-old.
Not sure if any Villa fans realise that O'Leary was ever at Leeds (!) but when he was at Leeds (copyright DOL) he signed Mills for £4.5million from Charlton.
O'Leary is desperate to re-enforce his defence, especially after last seasons injury nightmares. A report in the Birmingham Mail says that Villa are set to lose Mark Delaney which would come as no shock after the contract wrangles last season and also Jlloyd Samuel. What baffles me is if we are looking to get re-enforcements, why sell Jlloyd and Delaney who are as good as any of the current players being linked in?
Mills agent, Neil Featherby told icbrum:
'Villa are a big club and Danny knows the manager well. We have not had anyone make an official approach from Villa but it would be wrong to say that we wouldn't be interested in talking to them if there was interest on their part. It is something that could happen, and if it did, it would work. But like everything else it is dependant on so many permutations.'
Permutations? Doug + wages = no money?!
Our latest poll is asking if, judging by our lack of funds, if you would like to see Danny Mills sign for Villa. He is often controversial and certainly gets 'nasty' on the pitch. I'd rather see us going for younger players but Villa sure as heck have lacked battle and bite in recent seasons, so I wouldn't think it was a bad move for such an experienced player. On the flip-side, as others have said on the message boards, if he isn't good enough for Manchester City, why would he be good enough for us?
