More Villa Transfer Rumours
Probably a boring news week this week what with International friendlies and all, but there are still a few rumours doing the rounds.
The one link that seems to keep returning is to Fulham's Jimmy Bullard. Over the weekend he was linked to a £3million move to Villa. The Star On Sunday claimed the 29-year-old former Wigan midfielder, who was out for a long spell recently with a serious knee injury, is said to be likely to leave if Fulham fail to beat the drop.
Today The Times have Bullard linked to Middlesbrough for £4million.
Rumour rating? The sort of player that I would think Martin O'Neill would be keen on, not the most glamorous of signings but a tough and determined player nonetheless.
The Express today have us linked with Hull keeper Boaz Myhill. The paper mention a fee of around £5million. Yes, £5million for the same player we allowed to leave a few years ago for peanuts (not literally you understand, that would just be silly) despite him being highly touted as a future international, which has now come true as he's recently been called up by Wales. If memory serves me right he could also have played for USA and England, although my memory doesn't always serve me right!
Rumour rating? Not too sure on this one but it is obvious that we will be in the market for a new keeper and it should also be fairly obvious that if Liverpool do want the reported £10million for Scott Carson, that he won't be the one!
And that, for rumours, is that at the moment.
