Newsflash - Keeper Required!

Newsflash - Keeper Required!

The official site has just explained that Villa have been given permission by the Premier League to take a keeper on loan because Stuart Taylor has had to undergo knee surgery which rules him out for the Christmas fixture lists.

With Thomas Sorensen also out injured Villa only have 20-year-old Austrian Robert Olejnik left as an option and he has no Premiership experience.

So the search is on for temporary cover. Crushing blow for Taylor who had to wait for an injury to Sorensen before he got a chance, this was meant to be his opportunity to make a claim for the No1 shirt. Get better soon Mr T and Mr S.

got to feel sorry for Taylor though, got his chance and picked up an injury. Hopefully it isn't too serious.

might be that a keeper not in our league would be needed, why would our competition help us out afterall?

Why not just give 2 of the youngsters a chance? We have plenty dont we? Olejink, W Henderson, S Henderson, others in the youth team.

Kasper Schmeichel :) @ I think that FA allows only England-based keepers for this kind of emergency loan, there are no border-cross players allowed. But I am not sure about it.
