Skysports have furthered the rumour that Manchester United right-back Phil Bardsley could be joining Villa on loan.
Bardsley was meant to be off to Sunderland but it looks like we've scuppered the deal with a couple of other clubs also interested.
Sky say United will loan him only whereas earlier reports said he'd come on a loan deal with a permanent deal thrashed out in the summer.
Bardsley's agent Des Wroe told skysports: 'Yes, Aston Villa have shown an interest in Phil. There are a few other clubs interested along with Villa and I am hopeful of sorting something out in the next two or three days.'
Adding 'Phil wants to get back to playing as soon as possible and he would like to stay in the Premiership. He believes playing in the Premiership would help catch the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson and put him in his plans for the future.'
Another James Milner? We get excited then the bugger goes back?! Hopefully not but it makes sense as we desperately need a right back, whether permanently or until the summer when more options might be open.
A source (well? everyone else says it!) close to Man Utd told me this afternoon: 'Bardo is a fans' favourite, people around here love him. He gives 100% and more besides, is extremely fit and doesn't mind getting forward. He's very much a young Gary Neville and already has a hardcore following here, not least because he's from Salford and is hard as nails. Funny, cheeky lad who'll give his all to make it at the very top.'
Sounds good to me!
