Hasselbaink to Villa?
News coming from the forums today has turned up a transfer rumour which the vast majority of us would never have expected. Though it is nice that people are suggesting players might be coming in this summer.
There has been a suggestion that with Milan Baros deciding that he's better off in Germany, that boss David O`leary will turn his attention to a former player of his from his Leeds days (is it me or are we linked with every ex-Leeds player?)
Whilst rather old, Jimmy-Flloyd would present an interesting acquisition for a team already boasting one player in Kevin Phillips who certainly knows (or at least used to know) where the goal is.
Hasselbaink was ditched by ex-villa defender Gareth Southgate as the former England stopper clears out his Boro squad to try and reduce the age of the squad.
There are a couple of points to be raised from this link though. Do we really want another Premiership 'relic?' There is also the small problem of his wage demands. His agent claims that he has not made any 'sky-high' demands, however he was reportedly offered to Celtic for £40,000/week. The kind of weekly wage that will probably give Villa Supremo Doug Ellis a hernia by itself!
Whilst only a rumour, I thought I'd post it anyway seeing as life as a Villa fan has been a bit dull recently!
