Massive Bid For Baggies Captain?

Massive Bid For Baggies Captain?

According to the Daily Mail today, Villa boss Martin O'Neill has put in an £8million bid for West Bromwich Albion defender Curtis Davies.

Davis had a transfer request rejected by Baggies boss Tony Mowbray but is said to be desperate to play at the top level. Spurs were also thought to be interested according to yesterdays gossip!

The Mail say WBA will try to hold out for a fee of nearer £10million for the 22-year-old centre half.

Davis joined West Brom from Luton and was their captain within six months.

O'Neill has already stated he wants to bring in more players, lets face it, with a squad our size he has to basically.

The Villa boss said: 'In an ideal world I would have liked to have another couple of players in by now but we will have them before transfer deadline. Randy Lerner has not put a cap on anything. It is about me trying to find the proper acquisitions. He is leaving things to me and he will be supportive.'

Meanwhile the press have picked up on the fact that Randy Lerner has had a Villa tattoo! A lion on his leg so I believe!

Meanwhile The Sun that Portsmouth and Villa are in the hunt for Fulham right-back Liam Rosenior.

Reading are also said to be after the England U21 player.

trouble is, what is a true value for any player? I guess this is what MON is on about, the money is too high but if you want them, you have to pay as the baggies obviously don't want to sell, so it is silly money or move along! Don't know much about the Fulham right back, wonder what sort of price he would go for?

Yes. He is a top quality centre half.

I think Rosenior is an excellent prospect. He caught my eye a few times last season on MOTD as a quick fullback/wing back who gets up and down. If we're putting in big bids for Davies - does that mean we're not signing the Norwegian bloke??

This guy has the potential to be a great centre back for us! Stop fannying around, offer them the cash and sign him up!

Just look at the signings, Liam Rosenior is a very good player I was impressed with him against Villa last season. Also Curtis Davies both of these are again U21 Internationals with very hungry and bright futures. I believe that these two rumours are true and this stays in line with what MON has bought in so far. By the year 2010 we will have 7 Full England Internationals. Gabby,Moore,Cahill,Davies,ReoCoker,Young & Rosenior.

melski - why not go for both of them?? We were all saying we needed a CB before Ridgewell left - so two new CB for £12m minus the £2m for Ridgwell. Improved the centre of defence for £10m net - thats the kind of way we should be looking to improve. Maybe Cahill may feel forced down the order but I would be surprised if Laursen stays fit all season. Now the RB and GK and things look rosy again!!

Davies has massive potential. The player has asked for a transfer, usually means he will move. Mowbary wont want to keep a player that does not want to play for the team. If we want him we will get him.
