Blue Nose Defender To Villa?
According to the Daily Mirror, Martin O'Neill is set to bid £3 million bid for Small Heath defender Matthew Upson.
Apparently the Porn barons, sorry, meant the board of Blues realise they'll have to cash in on the centre back as he has just 18 months left on his contract and has turned down all efforts to tie him down to a 'lucrative' new five year deal.
The 27-year-old former Arsenal man, who has 7 England caps, has only recently returned from injury and obviously see's his future away from the Sty. Well, you would wouldn't you?
So, what do you think? Personally I can never give a fig where players come from as long as they give 100% for the cause at Villa. I know some questioned the signing of Chris Sutton saying he was a blue nose (which to me was ridiculous as he only spent one season there and spent half the time on the treatment table).
