Martin O'Neill has suggested we'll be getting new arrivals in January as he hopes to soon have a squad big enough to cope with the rigours of the Premiership.
He explained 'We are probably at the stage of our development where we are not able to stand three or four players going out of the side. Luckily, touch wood, that hasn't happened so far but we have eight games to negotiate between now and the new year which is a big ask for us but it is up to us. We will, in the not too distant future, be able to cope with the loss of big players - and I know the players who I would be particularly interested in bringing in.
He also says he hopes that Villa can push on for Europe this season with some crunch games on the horizon:
'We are in the middle of a very important period for us of three successive away games. It is a tough period with Middlesbrough and Blackburn away in the space of four days before we are at home again to Arsenal. This will be a big test for us especially as we have to travel to Middlesbrough on the back of the international fortnight.
No doubt in a week or so I'll add the January transfer window rumour article to the top of the site, in the meantime, the Daily Mail claim we are after Peter Crouch and John Arne Riise from Liverpool, Jermain Defoe from Tottenham (who lets face it is linked every transfer window and if not him, Robbie Keane!) and the link to Porto right-back Jose Boswinga has also re-surfaced. I'll also throw in a link to Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka, why not, everyone else makes them up!!??
