Villa Maloney Baloney?!

Villa Maloney Baloney?!

Aston Villa are once again being linked to Celtic striker Shaun Maloney.

The Daily Record say that the 23-year-old striker, who is out of contract at Parkhead in the summer, is looking to move with Martin O'Neill leading the chase.

They also claim that Chelsea are interested but if you were a young striker, where would you go? To a team full of superstars meaning you are unlikely to get a game, or to a newly revitalised Villa who are building for now and the future?

It's a tough one and, sadly, I can see him going - he is considered the most taltented Scottish prospect in years. Until he was injured training with Ireland, we've had Aiden McGeady playing on the left wing, and he has been having a superb season to keep Maloney out of the side. However, when Maloney did come in against Benfica, he was outstanding. While it might seem odd to outsiders that Maloney, last season's Scottish Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year, is not in the first XI, I think it is a sign that Strachan selects his team purely on merit, not the past.

It should also be added that O'Neill didn't seem to rate Maloney when he was up here and, if he wants to move and gets the chance of Villa or someone else in the top half of the Prem, I'd back him to choose "someone else"

Interesting, although he was that bit younger when O'Neill was in charge, so was he ready then?

He plays as more of a left-winger than a striker, so will that fit into your style of play?

ForeverHoop - Good to have you guys on the site. Credit to your club as you were when Petrov came down. We get idiots coming on and slagging us off if one of their players are linked. The one area we're short on a present since the injury to Moore is the left-wing striker berth. So yes, he would be ideal. Although I would be cautious about Scottish Premier players as apart from you guys, who would do well in our Prem, I don't think other Scottish sides are up to much.
