Sunday News Update
A fast and furious day for news coming from Villa Park has seen two newspaper links appear.
The News Of The World say: Aston Villa boss David O'Leary is on the trail of Manchester City's Danny Mills.
Daily Star Sunday: Hamburg are bidding to sign Aston Villa striker Milan Baros for ï¿½5m.
I am of course, exaggerating. Come on guys this is Aston Villa.
The official website has posted one of those nice little 'I'll do better' articles, this time from rookie midfielder Craig Gardner.
He's going to be a 'man on a mission' next year, to try and break into first team. Well, break into the first team and do well that is. With the summer transfer budget looking around the ï¿½3million mark (If you're a good boy David!) players such as Gardner are looking to be that 'just like a new signing' kinda guy.
He said: 'Last season was all about getting into the squad and I did that. I made a few appearances and was regularly in the squad.
'That was progress and now I have to progress again. I want to be involved more and more, so I'll have to work harder than ever when we come back for pre-season.'
Lets hope he does, at this rate it'll be an all British middle 4. I for one don't mind losing Gavin McCann if the likes of Gardner can prove that they can do his job, and then extra by going forward.
What do you think?
