Martin O'Neill has spoken of our new arrival Curtis Davies and the possibility of more arrivals.
On Davies he said:
'I am very pleased to have signed Curtis. He has been worth waiting for. It seems a long time since our interest was made known but all's well that ends well. West Brom wanted to do the deal in the way we have done it, starting with a season-long loan, and I am happy to go along with it.'
On the soon to close transfer window and our lack of a right-back, he added:
'It's still possible someone may be coming in before midnight but it looks like the right-back I really want will not be available for two or three months. If that is the case, then so be it. I would prefer the player I want to come in January but we do have alternatives here.'
Right, so we go through until January without a single recognised right-back at the club after months of waiting? Superb planning I must say. So Olof Mellberg will no doubt be shifted to the right where he doesn't like playing and where his game is really not suited, or we play a midfielder there. Surely selling Aaron Hughes, a recognised and capable (albeit not world beating) right-back was a total error in judgement?
The Villa boss also confirmed no one had been in contact to buy Shaun Maloney, putting pay to reports in Scotland suggesting the diminutive striker was set to move back to Celtic before midnight tonight.
