Hasselbaink to Villa?

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!

Doesn't this seem a bit far-fetched? I mean, sure, he's still a good player and everthing but Boro to Villa is a sideways move these days, and he in earning silly money where he is. It just doesn't seem to make sense.

You expect anything at AVFC to make sense anymore?

Sadly, that's the phrase - anything that keeps Villa in the Prem will be needed because I reckon it will be a struggle to do so.

Not sure I like the idea of Hasselbaink as a replacement for Baros. Would rather see Luke or Gabby given a chance rather than another 30+ has been

Wish you were Villa mate, you've just made more sense than Ellis and Dol!

He might be available for free, but his wages would be around £1.5-2million-a-year. A no starter, surely?

The fact is until we sign someone, we will be linked to the majority of available players.
