Milner Transfer Saga Rumbles On
Different articles are drawing different conclusions on the James Milner situation.
His agent told skysports.com 'We have had discussions with Newcastle about James. There has been a meeting and there is another one planned soon to see what Newcastle want to do regarding James. We know Aston Villa are interesting and we are just waiting to see what happens at Newcastle's end before progressing.'
What a lovely compliment, Aston Villa are interesting!!! Mind you, I don't think he can have seen us play last season! :(
Apparently Glenn Roeder is yet to make a decision on the Newcastle winger who spent all of last season on loan at Villa Park but with reports linking the Magpies to Steed Malbranque of Fulham, it would seem probably IF WE EVER PUT A BID IN that we could lure Milner to Villa permanently.
A fee of £3.5million is thought likely for the 20-year-old winger. David O'Leary is desperate for the signing to be made as he looks to build the team around Milner and Steven Davis.
