Another Link Ruled Out For Villa
Would love to be doing a 'thank crunchie it's Friday' happy article about a player signing, unfortunately we've not made a signing so I can't.
What I can do is follow the example set by Sky Sports and rule one out!
We have been linked with young German international defender Per Mertesacker this week but according to his agent, the Werder Bremen player is going nowhere.
Roman Pletz told skysports:
'At the moment it is not possible for Per to leave. He is under contract until 2010 and he is a very important player for Werder Bremen. There has been interest in Per since the last World Cup, with English clubs watching him. Aston Villa is a big club, but Per is happy at Bremen and he will stay at Bremen this year.'
So there you go.
Hey, it's sunny outside, Villa are going to get 3 points tomorrow and come next week, we'll sign five players.
We will won't? Tell me we will!??!
