According to several papers today, including The Mirror, Sheffield United boss Bryan Robson wants to take on-loan defender Gary Cahill permanently in the January transfer window. The reports say that Robson has asked his loan period to be extended until the clubs can agree on a fee said to be in the region of £1.5million. Great, we buy an average defender - 27 year old Zat Knight - from a very average club - Fulham - for £3.5million and get rid of a young (21) up and coming local product. Suppose the only question to ask is (if the report is true) why?
Meanwhile Liverpool full back John Arne Riise has ruled out a move away from Anfield having been linked to Villa. Riise told the club's website: 'There was a story about me moving to Aston Villa in January. He said on the rumour 'I was away with the national team at the time and Liverpool are quite big in Norway so a lot of people were asking me about it. But it's completely false. I have 18 months left on my contract here and have no intention of leaving. Liverpool is the club closest to my heart and it's where I belong.'
Other reports over the past week have been linking Scott Carson with a permanent move to Aston Villa again with the reports once again suggesting that there is an arrangement in place between the two clubs to allow a permanent move at a set fee. The fee mentioned is a record breaking £10million. However this flies totally in the face of what Martin O'Neill has said several times about no such agreement being in place.
This is one signing I'd love to see made permanent, he could be our and England's No 1 for many years to come, and it looks like he might well get his chance of picking up his first full cap for England this Friday in the friendly v Austria. The Daily Mail claim that if he impresses, he will keep his place for the Euro qualifier v Croatia. Another reason for Carson to want to stay at Villa one would hope as he is guaranteed first team football with us and can see the size and potential of Villa knowing he could well be plying his trade in Europe within the next few seasons.
