Not that much in the way of transfer gossip today, few snippets including Zoltan the destroyer. Well, his name is Zoltan Gera really but he sounds like a character from an old Flash Gordon film! I digress... The 29-year-old Baggies and Hungary international player has yet to sign a new contract for the newly promoted West Brom and has been linked several times to Villa as well as Middlesbrough, Wigan and Bolton. He said: 'My team-mates, the management and the fans want me to stay and it makes me feel good but at the moment I don't know how to continue. Now I'll have some free time to think about my future. I have to think not only about myself but also about my family. I must see what's the best for them. Now only one thing is for sure - WBA are promoted.'
Reports today suggest that Martin O'Neill is looking at Newcastle and former Tottenham Hotspur right-back Stephen Carr after being blocked in any move for Jose Boswinga. 31-year-old Carr is available on a free as his contract runs out this summer. Why not get Geordie winger James Milner while you are there?!
One link that seems to have bitten the dust is Jose Boswinga. The 25-year-old Portuguese international was linked last summer and again in January but his agent Rui Neno says he will only leave Porto for a side in the Champions League. 'I have no idea where these suggestions came from. I have never been contacted by anyone from Aston Villa. It does not seem to me that the player would be interested to sign for Aston Villa. He would match up to a Champions League side.'
Wigan defender Paul Scharner has been linked to Villa and Everton according to The Manchester Evening News.
Another report, this time in the People, albeit with no substance or quotes, says that Villa are after Sevilla midfielder Christian Poulsen who is valued for around £4million. Barcelona are also linked!
