Kevin Phillips Bid Accepted?

Kevin Phillips Bid Accepted?

According to Vital Albion, Villa have accepted a £750 000 bid for Kevin Phillips from both Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion.

The 33-year-old striker will now talk with the Baggies and the Black Cats before deciding which club to move to.

It seems a bit of a no brainer to some that Phillips will link up with his former striker partner Niall Quinn at the Stadium of Lights where he was hero worshipped, but Vital Baggies claim he will choose to stay in Birmingham so he is closer to his family who are based down south.

Thats a good bit of business this new manager I like. Phillips did well enough was not great and considering how much he got injured 750,000 seems a good price.

i say dont sell. Sell Phillips and all you need is an injury to angel and then our attack line starts looking thread bear. Plus he is one of the experienced heads to help bring the kids through and keep them in line if they play up (stop swinging on the cross bar agbonalhor). Who needs 750k, we have randy!?

If villa are to progress then Phillips is the kind of player that needs to be replaced. If a miracle occurs and we find ourself in the european places come may, i suspect that it will be due to better players than him.

He'll always be remembered for the winning goal against blues. We signed him three years too late sadly. If I were him, i'd go to West Brom and wouldn't go back to Sunderland. He might do ok in that league but he's far too injury prone now. I think we need one more striker anyway. I'd like to see us go for someone like Nugent.

I agree we could do with a better one, but while we havent signed anyone we should keep him just in case.

Hmmm if O'Neil is letting Phillips go maybe he has someone else lined up to replace him

A cult hero of sorts in the north-east he may well be, but if I were him I'd think long and hard about moving back up to Sunderland. They really do look a club in very serious decline, and could well be in line for two successive relegations if early results/performances are to be believed. The West Brom move might prove to be the better option, particularly if one considers the 'never go back' rule. The fact that MON is allowing both West Brom and Sunderland to talk to Phillips would surely indicate that the gaffer is confident of keeping hold of our Czech Republic striker, and/or he has a replacement already lined up.

I must say that the Villa will not let Baros go now that we have one less striker
