Not quite sure why, but apparently Liam Ridgewell is about to move to Birmingham City.
According to Nick Pullen at the Birmingham Mail, the move could happen this afternoon as Villa sell yet another player in the transfer window where we'd expected hoards of arrivals!
The 22-year-old defender is said to be going for around £2.25million.
According to the Mail Villa will be bringing in Norway international Brede Hangeland from FC Copenhagen for a fee in the region of £4million.
If Ridgewell does go, I wish him nothing but luck, shame about the destination but I think the player is a decent centre back and would rather him in our squad (ok, maybe not a first team starter but certainly worthy as a squad player) and I would MUCH rather see us get replacements BEFORE departures, for example, right back anyone? The Mail says that our only out and out right-back, Mark Delaney, is 'nowhere near' fit.
Strange and frustrating times. I think at the start of the summer avfc48 was slated for suggesting that Martin O'Neill has a reputation amongst Celtic fans for being slow in the transfer market and making last minute signings. Not so sure everyone would be so quick to slate him now?
And in another report, The Record Sport have said that Shaun Maloney will return to Celtic within the week. Not so sure about that one, this was rumoured and denied only a week or so back and Maloney was played last night in the friendly against Stoke, if he was on his way out, would he have been risked? I think not. The report says the move will be for £1million. I guess time will tell.
Our latest poll asks if Liam Ridgewell should be sold or not.
