Spurs Midfielder A Villa Target
According to The Times, Aston Villa have made a move for Tottenham midfielder Teemu Tainio.
The report claims Villa are already in talks with the Finnish attacking midfielder after the two clubs apparently agreed fees.
I find this one hard to believe, if they'd agreed fees the club would have announced it like they have over the Ashley Young transfer deal.
I briefly asked White Hart from Vital Spurs.
He said: 'He is fantastic, everything Aston Villa could wish for and more. I would recommend you buy him now, in fact if you like I'll pay his taxi fare for you or drive him up myself if that helps'.
Right, thanks for that, I think........
Tainio has started just 9 games for Spurs this season plus came off the bench once. He has 1 Premiership goal.
