Chelsea Star Wanted Villa Loan

Chelsea Star Wanted Villa Loan

Martin O'Neill has clarified the situation regarding Milan Baros' claim that Shaun Wright-Phillips didn't want to come to Villa Park.

The Villa boss said that a Baros / SWP swap LOAN deal was on the cards and that the Chelsea winger was interested.

During this afternoons press conference (click here he said:

'What happened was we obviously had shown an interest in Shaun Wright-Phillips and the fact we had made a bid at that particularly stage. I'm sure Shaun Wright-Phillips sees his future at Chelsea, that's fine, I've got absolutely no problem with that. This was actually just to do with a loan. I think Shaun Wright-Phillips wanted to come on loan until the end of the season, so he could have a look at things.'

'We would then send Milan on loan in reverse, but that never materialised. It was never a permanent deal, it was always going to be a loan. Had Chelsea been interested in taking Milan permanently I would have been listening to hear what they had to say. But it was only a loan and it disappeared almost as quickly as it materialised really and there was very little in it.'

Bit different to Baros' claims that SWP spoilt his move to Chelsea isn't it?!

OMG how much of a knob does Baros look now!! Cant understand only wanting SWP on loan though, maybe O'neill did not rate him in the £10m bracket???

He said he wanted to come on loan til the end of the season so he could take a look at things. Presumably that means that a permanent deal may have followed.

I think this indicates that SWP wanted to come on loan BEFORE signing permanently to see what Villa were about ..... or am I having a senior moment again??

As for SWP, if we could, we should get him on loan until the end of the season, MON seems to be quite the talisman in the transfer window !!!!!!!!! Or maybe Merlin.

What about getting SWP on loan and putting him on the bench till the end of the season as he seems to love it on Chelseas. ;-)

The Chelsea bench is heated, and as we all know the only heated seat in Villa park is the Fears!!
