USA Defender Targetted?
A snippet in the Daily Star (yes, I know) claims that a host of Premiership clubs are chasing Standard Liege defender Oguchi Onyewu. Aston Villa, they claim, are in pole position for the £2million rated player. They also name Fulham and Wigan...... which is nice!
The 24-year-old USA international defender has played 17 times for his country and has also played for Metz and La Louviere.
Makes sense for us to target an American, if they are good enough (obviously) as the marketing side of things would bring in extra interest stateside and therefore more revenue.
Robbie Keane was also said to be a major target but the Spurs striker has just picked up a medial ligament injury and could be out of action for over a month.
Another reported target, this time Watford's 21-year-old striker Ashley Young has promised he won't walk out on the Hornets if they are relegated.
'I have been at Watford since I was 10 years old, and this is where I want to be. Watford look to develop young players. People ask if I need to be at a different club to get into the England senior side, but I have managed to get into the Under-21s while playing for Watford. Would I have a problem staying here if we were in the Championship? No. If you have what we have here, you do not need to go anywhere.'
