The Sunday Mirror say - in a report with no quotes or substance - that Birmingham City are interested in signing a second Villa defender, this time Gary Cahill for £2m. Cahill is also being linked to Sheffield United and Sunderland.
Rumour rating? They already have one in Liam Ridgewell, hopefully they won't get a second, especially as Gary Cahill is a great prospect and should remain a Villan.
The Lancashire Evening Post says that Roy Keane is looking at bidding £3million for Pompey midfielder/full back Matt Taylor. What has that to do with us? Well according to them Aston Villa, Reading and Everton are also interested in the 26-year-old.
Rumour rating? He is bound to end up somewhere as he is too good to spend time on the bench at Pompey surely? To Villa? Who knows.
Another report claims Villa are interested in Spanish Under-21 full-back José Ángel Crespo who is a Sevilla youth academy product. His current deal runs until 2010 so any purchase won't come cheap for the 20-year-old.
Rumour rating? Seems a bit of a random link to me, doubtful.
The Sunday press have again linked Aston Villa with Spurs striker Jermain Defoe. He is also being linked with Portsmouth, Chelsea and Manchester City. Reports claim he will definitely move in January.
Rumour rating? He'll go somewhere, whether Martin O'Neill thinks he will fit into the Villa team with two small quick forwards already in Young and Gabby I'm not sure. I'd rather see us go for a striker who is playing and scoring regularly though. The Spurs fans always seem quite split on him although given the chance he does seem to know where the goal is!
