Villa's Outs and Outs

Villa's Outs and Outs

Tobias Mikaelsson has moved to Port Vale on a one month deal, and will now line up with former team mate Chris Herd.

Mikaelsson has been a revelation for the reserve side this season, leading to glorious praise from Kevin MacDonald on more than one occassion.

Speaking to the press, he said:

'I first knew of Vale's interest two days ago when Chris Herd spoke to me about it. But I didn't need much persuading.

'It's a chance for first team football, and I see it as a good opportunity.

'I have scored a lot of goals in the reserves at Villa, and I hope to do the same in my time at Port Vale.

'I like to think I'm an intelligent type of player with decent technique and decent pace.

'I came over from Sweden two and half years ago before coming over to Aston Villa. I feel you can get a better football education over here.'

Another outgoing player, Stephen O'Halloran has said that he is relishing the opportunity for regular football after his loan move.

O'Halloran has joined Southampton on a months deal, and took part in his first training session today. Speaking on the official site, he said:

'I've been waiting for a while to get out on loan. Freddy Bouma has been in great form this season and this has meant I haven't had much of a look-in.

'I'm looking to get some games under my belt at Southampton and help them push up the Championship table.

'They are looking towards the Premier League and if I can help them in that aim, that would be great.

'The Saints are a big club with an impressive history and I'm thoroughly looking forward to my month here.

'George Burley is a well-respected manager and I really enjoyed my first training session this morning.

'We've got Plymouth on Saturday and I'd be delighted to get into the team for that match.'

Thankyou for your expert Championship biased viewpoint ozanne park rangers. How ever did Vital Villa survive without your input? What have we done to deserve you? Tobias Mikaelsson I rate highly. Potentially a first team/premiership player, he's come on in leaps and bounds this season, and really looked the business against West Ham the other evening over at Bescot. O'Halloran I'm not so sure about. Never impressed me.
