According to the Daily Mail has claimed that Villa have bid £3million for right-back Pascal Chimbonda.
The report claims the bid has been rejected by Spurs who want £5million for the France international. Well, when I say France international, he has one cap coming on as a sub in 2006 coming on in the 87th minute!
The former Wigan defender, who played his face up to get a move to Spurs has apparently been told by Tottenham boss Juande Ramos that he isn't in his plans for next season and that he can leave.
Apparently he could offer Villa some cover as he has also played at left-back and centre-back.
He certainly impressed during his season at Wigan and ended up being voted the best right-back in the PFA Team of the Year.
Although he upset Wigan by signing a new deal only to ask to leave at the end of the season, if we could get him and settle him down and he could recreate the form that led Spurs to paying £4.5million for him, I'm sure we'd have a decent player on our hands. The biggest risk I guess is if he proves to be a journeyman always looking for his next move?
For Wigan he played 38 games, scoring one goal. At Spurs he has made 65 appearances (33 06/07 and 32 07/08) scoring 3 times.
Villa fans, what do you think of this possible link?
Spurs fans, glad to see the back of him or a decent player being sold?
