Dunne & Lumb Linked To Villa

Dunne & Lumb Linked To Villa

According to the Birmingham Mail Villa are looking at Danish Under-21 international left-back Michael Lumb. Meanwhile the Express & Star say Villa are chasing Manchester City defender Richard Dunne.

20-year old Michael Lumb currently plays for AGF Aarhus and is, according to the report, also being lined up for a £1.75million transfer by Ajax, West Ham and Udinese.

There are no quotes, or even agents talking, so no idea how true the link is although it is the sort of age group MON is bound to be looking at for the future.

In the E&S they say we are 'weighing up' a £6million bid for 28-year-old Citeh and Republic of Ireland defender Richard Dunne. Wonder what sort of scales are used for weighing these things up? It is like when clubs are chasing a player, is there a specific transfers running track or are they just followed in the street? This is the sort of thing we at Vital have to know. Some call it investigative reporting, others just insanity. I call it Derek, but that is another story.

Dunne has been player of the year for the light blue Mancs for the last four seasons but has apparently refused to sign a new deal with just one year left on his contract. I'm not surprised he doesn't want to sign a longer deal with the turmoil taking place at his club!

Dunne has played at right-back but plays more regularly as a centre back.

Would a CB cause ructions between Davies and Knight though...davies is massive on skill and potential....worriesd about this to be homest, don't want too much cover negating the development of players like Davies, or am i being a sissy. Sod it lets get him in....we need the extra cover for Europe.

Dunne is a very very good centre half and possibly just as importantly a good leader, £6m is a snip.

I wouldn't rely on anybody with as serious an injury as Davies had. Its just foolish in the football business.

Villa are the fifth club to be connected to Dunne so far. I sense a bidding war coming, and that can only be good for Dunne. LOL

Rare that we'd have a chance to sign a player of this calibre though - it's being helped by the fact that he won't re-sign with Citeh, so it's a great opportunity for us.
