Prince Boateng to be a Villan?

Prince Boateng to be a Villan?

Breaking News suggests that Spurs have accepted a bid from Aston Villa for their midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Martin O'Neill has thrown us all a curveball with the bid for a player who has failed to impress anyone at White Hart Lane and has played just 17 times in all competitions for Spurs since his £4.5million move from Hertha Berlin.

Boateng is the second spurs player seriously linked with a move to Villa Park, with Wayne Routledge believed to be undergoing a medical at Bodymoor Heath today.

From Wikipedia; A player with dual German-Ghanaian nationality, Boateng is a central midfielder. He has been described as having "skill and pace complemented by advanced tactical awareness and a powerful physique. He started his career with the youth club Reinickendorfer Füchse and signed for Spurs, after spending thirteen years at Hertha Berlin. Boateng was with Hertha from 1 July 1994 when he was just seven years old to 31 July 2007. After emerging from the youth team set-up, he played for the reserves for two seasons. He was twice sent off, but he won a call-up to the first team squad in the 2005-06 season. He made his debut against Eintracht Frankfurt, in round 2 of the 2005-06 Bundesliga season, being brought on at the start of the second half. He impressed during that game, and was on the fringe of the first team from then on, despite barely being 18 years old. Boateng continued his rise, and started his first Bundesliga game in the 2-2 draw against Borussia Mönchengladbach in round 14 of the Bundesliga season. Boateng identifies Pelé and Rivaldo as his role models, occasionally imitating the Brazilian duo with crowd-pleasing moments. [2] His love of playing to the gallery draws applause, but has also attracted a fair share of criticism too. The Germany Under 19 coach, Uli Stielike, said about him: "At senior level, Kevin will need to wean himself off the world of fantasy football". He has since cut down on those antics.

Not seen him play but looks like he might be ok! Time will tell, interested to hear any sensible Spurs fans opinions.

MON does like to bring in 2 players from 1 club at a time maybe to help them settle in. Marlon and Nige. 2 lots of 2 from Celtic. So maybe he will join Routledge in our reserves as there is noone else selling at the moment to calm the fans nerves.

You really are a comedian Mr Fear... I mean fancy asking for such a thing. I am now off to get my ribs repaired.

How many more spurs players can we get linked to before the end of the transfer window? Winning guess wins a lick of my eyeball.

Nearly as good as Jenas...nuff said.
