The rumour mill continues, with talk of two players out, one that might go but nobodies really sure...and nobody in.
Kicking things off, is the shock 'report' that states that Harry 'Wheeler Dealer' Redknapp will come back to Villa with an improved offer for Gareth Barry. Personally I think selling the likes of Barry, when we're struggling for wide players it would be daft to sell one, and I'm none too certain that the reported £4.25million is worth the bother anyway.
Especially when you consider the Sun's snippet that says that our other left sided player, youngster Peter Whittingham (is he still young?) has turned down Sunderland and Notts Forest in favour of going up the road to Wolves for around £500k. Not a bad deal if you ask me, for a player who has struggled really to cope with Premiership life.
Martin Laursen is clearly delighted with his return to action, the defender has been out of action for 10 months after a serious knee injury of a serious nature. After specialist treatment in Italy, Laursen has reported back for pre-season training apparently fit, though I still reckon we should run a sweepstake on who gets injured first!
'It felt good and it was good to be there with the lads. 'I've missed it a lot. It's been hard work in Bologna and it's been tough for me to stay out for so long, but now I'm back and I really believe my knee is fine.'
Villa have signed twins! Swiss U-17 pair Yago and Damian Bellon for an undisclosed fee from St.Gallen. Won't go into too much detail, I think Doug is clutching at straws if he thinks signing academy players is news worth shouting about during the transfer season.
...and finally, goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has recovered from the finger injury he picked up during the international friendly prior to this years World Cup. Lets hope he now uses his working-again finger, along with the rest to actually catch the ball more than the current 50% of the time!
That's all for now, and quite frankly I'm amazed I wrote that much.
