Bournemouth are in talks with Aston Villa in regards to extending the loan deal of midfielder Stephen Foley. His current deal expires on December 31st and Sean O'Driscoll is keen to tie him to a further loan period to take him up until the end of the season.
Mark Delaney hinted the other day that he might have to leave Aston Villa in order to get first team football. The Wales international defender would like to stay at Villa but it appears the club have made no move to sort out a new contract with his current deal running out in the summer. He has been linked to former club Cardiff City and to Wales second team (!) Blackburn to join up with Mark Hughes. Full story:Click Here
Further to that story, Delaney has now handed in a transfer request and said 'I've been disillusioned for a while and I'm disappointed because I've always asked and always wanted to stay. I've always been fobbed off with this extension year which is there, I know it's there, but it's nothing to do with me.: Full story:Click Here
Our current poll at Click Hereasks if Delaney should be granted his request.
The club have said they will wait and assess the right backs fitness before committing to a new deal, but with reports linking him to a £895 000 move to Blackburn, Villa are surely more likely to cash in on the player while he still has some value; as he can walk away for nothing in the summer.

The rock at the back of Aston Villa's defence, otherwise known as Olof Mellberg, is targeting the local derby against West Bromwich Albion on 2nd January 2006 as his comeback date. Full story:Click Here
Kevin Phillips on the other hand is still not ready for a return but may be fit in time for the FA Cup clash against Hull on January 7th.
Steven Davis, who signed a new 3 1/2 year deal at Villa on Tuesday, says the money wasn't the motivation, it is winning things that interests him. 'I am ambitious, I want to win things and with the quality we have in the squad at Villa I believe I can do that here. Our aim this season was to qualify for Europe and if we can put a few results together there is every chance of achieving that.' Full story:Click Here
According to those that voted on last weeks poll, it doesn't matter what strike partnership we use, because they don't get the supply. 5% voted for mascots Hercules and Bella up front! Full story: Click Here
O'Leary has ruled out any chance of making a loan move for Chelsea defender Robert Huth because it would mean he would have to return either James Milner to Newcastle or Eirik Bakke to Leeds United. With no money available, it looks like O'Leary has been forced to stop looking for a defender. Who was it that said Villa was run like a corner shop? Well, if a corner shop was run like this, they would go bust! Full story: Click Here
The Daily Mirror has said that both Everton and Aston Villa are chasing the one million pound signature of Swansea striker Lee Trundle. Err, how? We don't have any money to spend?
O'Leary is concerned that if Milan Baros has another tournament (World Cup) as good as the Euro 2004 one, that Baros might attract the 'elite' clubs as a transfer target. Villa? A selling club? Don't be ridiculous, with our rich and generous chairman? The very thought. Full story:Click Here
