Trio Chase Ward?

Trio Chase Ward?

Former Villa youngster Jamie Ward is being chased by three clubs.

The 20-year-old was released by Villa as they decided not to extend his contract this summer.

His agent Gino Culbertson said: 'The three clubs that have been most prominent and have actually made offers are Torquay United, Stockport County and Wrexham. We would probably make a decision over the next couple of days. He wants to weigh up all the options and it's just a case of him deciding what's best for him. We've had in-depth talks with all three clubs.'

Ward impressed on loan at Stockport and I've mates there, so I'm biased. COME ON STOCKPORT!

Didnt even realise we'd released him. So let me get this straight.... we loan him out to see if he can compete at a competitive level. He gets rave reviews and we release him. Makes a farce out of the loan system if you ask me.

Yeah but he got rave reviews at Stockport, remember. There's a world of difference between that and Premiership football. Ward is quite short so maybe it was decided he didn't have the physical qualities needed.

Seen Wardy play a few times at County and he will be able to compete at a higher level (though not neccessarily Prem level - so should be OK for Villa in 2007-8 - just a little joke guys!). Several Villa lads come up to see County (beer and women as well as the footy!) and passed favourable comments about Jamie. To Jamie, if you are reading this - you know things are on the up at County DO THE RIGHT THING AND BECOME A HERO) Regards SCFC

To be fair, none of the academy youngsters we've realised have done it at Premiership level. Only one who looks likely is Boaz Myhill...I hear there's a few prem clubs interested in him

Here you guys are talking sadly about some bloke who isn't going to make it, good little player? Are Villa already on the same footing as Wrexham and Stockport. Deano, Peter Crouch is about 8 foot tall hardly "short"
