Sorensen Negotiates Move Via Press?
Villa's number one Thomas Sorensen certainly looks like he is trying to negotiate a move via the press.
The Denmark international, in the last year of his contract at Villa, is in a strop - despite not being available due to injury - because Martin O'Neill decided to bring in a third keeper. At the time of the loan signing of Scott Carson from Liverpool he was quoted as asking the manager why Villa needed another keeper when they have two perfectly good ones. He obviously forgot the situation last year when we ended up having to loan Gabor Kiraly from Palace. Sorensen's argument might have been a bit stronger if not for the fact he has not been available for selection at all so far this season and even Stuart Taylor was touch and go following a strain.
The 31-year-old shot stopper, who I think is a bit underrated as a keeper by some, told BT:
'For me the most important thing is to play, I will never choose a higher salary ahead of that. In case I don't play anymore at Aston Villa, I am willing to accept a salary reduction to find the right club.'
So no new contract for Thomas then me thinks!? I must admit I'm not mad keen on the fact we've had to borrow Carson, but having seen him play it is clear why he is so highly rated, lets just hope we can break the bank next summer and get him to Villa Park permanently.
