Villa and Bolton Agree Cahill Fee

Villa and Bolton Agree Cahill Fee

Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers have agreed a fee, believed to be around the £5million mark for young defender Gary Cahill.

The major news networks are suggesting that O'Neill has now given Gary Megson permission to talk to Cahill, who has spent the majority of the season on loan at Sheffield United.

Following the agreement that Olof Mellberg will stay on until the summer, it appears that Cahill's chances of selection would be severely limited.

At the end of the day it is up to the manager but I think it is SO very sad to sell a player of his quality (and look at the price, you can see Bolton agree) and replace him with a lesser player for a lesser price from a lesser club like Fulham. Real blow.

Oh and good luck to him, hope he goes from strength to strength.

Let's just see what Mr O'Neill brings in....(JW)...
28/01/2008 14:46:00
Gutted. At least we got a decent fee, but why replace a £5m YOUNG defender with a £4m older one?
28/01/2008 14:47:00
Tis a sad day, I hope he does well and I'm sure we all agree he probably will.
28/01/2008 14:51:00
we don't need the money, he has every chance of improving and forcing his way into the side, so why sell??
28/01/2008 14:56:00
He's fifth choice and going to lesser team. Those are the bare facts. I must admit, I loved the player BUT he wanted guarantees around first team football (like Davies and Ridgewell). This does go gainst the small squad argument and Martin will gain enemies if he signs Bobo Balde

So now we know what Mon promised to tell us today - two out none in. It seems crazy to swap a good young player with bags of potential for a no hoper who, by his own admission can't concentrate for 90 minutes, at half the value we sold Cahill for. Tell me, id this the function of our academy, to develop players and then sell them on to our competitord when they begin to become good? Now, next question, regardless of what MON says DO WE NEED THE MONEY? Otherwise why sell. It makes no sense at all and by the summer we will have only two real CB's Whoever said supporting Villa was easy? I thought all this pain was in the past with MON and Randy in place! Like you others I hope he rams his success in MON's face as I am sure he and Curtis will be England stalwarts in 5-7 years time. What a waste.
28/01/2008 15:10:00
No other club would be selling in our position. We have no RB and if we lose one or God forbid two central defenders to injury we're in trouble. MON said himself that nobody wants to sell. Wounder why. Cause they know that to have the greatist chance of finishing the season well you need a strong squad. Ours just seems to get smaller. Apart from Young we've yet to make any great strides in the transfer market. I trust MON and Learner but i'm starting to worry. The only player that could reasonably go is Sorenson. Understanderbly he's v.unhappy at Villa at the moment and we've got a v.good Taylor and hopefully come the summer Carson will be ours but MON does'nt appear ready to sell Sorenson even though it appears he may be shopping for ANOTHER keeper. I agree with Obediah, letting Cahill go is crazy.
