Hendrie In Villa Park Exit?

Looks like we could be waving goodbye to Villa's longest serving player sometime before next Wednesday's transfer window deadline.

Stoke had thought they had the signature of 29-year-old midfielder Lee Hendrie this week but the player now looks set to stay in the Premiership.

Stoke's chief executive Tony Scholes told the club's official website: 'After a frustrating morning, we've been unable to secure a deal with Aston Villa for the loan of Lee Hendrie. We were desperately keen to sign Lee in advance of Saturday's FA Cup match at Fulham but, unfortunately, problems have occurred due to interest from a Premiership club. We are however, still very keen to sign Lee and we have not given up hope of securing a deal.'

Neil Warnock has been linked several times to Hendrie in his bid to keep Sheffield United up this season.

I hear it's Blackburn, actually. Hendrie can park his Ferarri next to Savo's caravan.

Its a shame i like the lad & he has took nothing but stick off certain sections of the crowd just because his FAMILY support the blues. Shocking treatment of one of our players

Blackburn, playing with Gyppo, nargh..... Sheffield Utd is about Lees level.

Blackburn need a signing, heard one of their players has a broken leg, (now isn't that a damn shame) I am sure the prem will miss his silky smooth ball skills.
steff_the_villan
And chaps, please stop calling him a Gyppo, the Gypsey community are a proud travelling people with one of the longest histories. They would spit on such as he.
steff_the_villan
TuBBz -I doubt if it has anything to do with his family's activities. It's just down to him and how he has conducted himself, both on and off-field (mainly off-field) for all the time he has been at VP since he made his first game in 95/96 as a 19year old. Extremely talented, pashionate but totally irresponsible. He should have made it too the top but had too much money too soon!.

1.) stef the villan, im sure the women in brum will miss lee's silky ball skills, if u get me 2.) villacross, gareth barry was given too much money from an early age and he turned out alright (he brought a porshe? i think and he hadnt passed test, is what i herd), i do not blame money
meakers
Its not money but education. The educated act responsibly (90% of the time) I doubt that Hendrie went back to school after he signed junior forms with the Villa.
myleftfoot
Some folks can handle early riches, others not. 19-year olds as a group are rather irresponsible. There are many, however, that are mature far beyond their years and they are a joy to be around.

Yep my Uncle is a hippy and he is pretty cool

Looks increasingly likely that Lee is indeed on his way. Good luck to him I say. Often frustrating, arrogant, foolhardy, reckless, and juvenile, but a player who has given the club loyal service none the less.
glensider
glensider - loyal service? When he could have undoubtedly done better by acting less like a pr***k, who has never grown up. So loyal service? I think not. Yes, not too much money for a responsible person with average intelligence! -but there you go, Lee's brains are in his boots.
villacross
Villacross - you've gone too far down mate. His brains ain't in his boots!
Gazvilla
Swap Hendrie for Jagielka
AussieVilla
Id swap Hendrie for a tea-bag and a pack of scratchings.
mackaavfc
if Marty has no plans for him then its best for him to go
Christo
Definitely seems to be the end for our lil Lee. There has to have been something happened between him and O'Neill somewhere along the line. He is the only player in the squad that MON hasn't given a chance to.
jonah
jonah-MON's probably read his disciplinary record over the last 10 years.
villacross
I don't think MON would be swayed by that or other peoples opinion, seems to me to be a man who makes his own mind up.
steff_the_villan
He'll probably see fit to take up another loan position until seasons end, and then weigh his options up when he's a free agent. Surely remaining at Stoke for now would be a sensible and practical route to take?
