Sunday's Villa Transfer Rumours Round-up

Sunday's Villa Transfer Rumours Round-up

Looking forward to the Euro's ending, maybe then we'll start to see some signings for all clubs in this transfer window! The speculation only gets you so far after-all!

According to the People, in a rumour repeated from last week, Aston Villa are after Liverpool's Steve Finnan. Fulham are also after him.

The News of the World claim that Newcastle winger James Milner has begged Kevin Keegan to let him go to Liverpool, his 'dream move'. The report claims that Liverpool are offering cash + a player (21 year old Danny Guthrie to be exact) but Villa have lodged a straight cash offer of £7million for the 22-year-old.

Speculation in Portugal say that Villa are after Sporting Braga's 24-year-old right-back João Pereira after failing to secure the signature of Benfica's Nélson. Apparently Napoli and FC Porto are also interested.

The Observer claim that Liverpool will bid £15m plus add-ons up to a deal of around £18million for Gareth Barry. Yawn. 4th time lucky for the Anfield lot? Apparently not according to this report as the add on terms include Liverpool winning the Premiership and Barry getting 30 more England caps.

Meanwhile the News of the World claim that Villa have told Liverpool they won't accept anything less than £20million for the Villa skipper. The NofW claim that Barry will put in a transfer request which will cost him a seven-figure loyalty bonus. They say: 'He was reluctant to do so because he would lose the massive lump sum on top of missing out on a lucrative testimonial.'

Anyone think there will be some new arrivals before the end of June?

WTF WTF WTF Barry will definitely not win the league at liverpooh and it would be doubtful he will get another 30 england caps on their bench. Nice one MON for sticking to your guns. 20mill cash straight. no surrender!

I think the first week of July will be (hopefully) busy for transfers. Doubt we'll see any in June

Now this is no disrespect to Fulham, I think they're one of the more tollerable of London clubs. But is anyone else slightly disheartened by the fact we're repeatedly being linked to the same players as them, if not current players? I mean, this is a team who survived relegation by the skin of their teeth. Are we not bigger, better and more established than this? Their target for each season seems to be staying up, and they're quite happy with that. We, on the other hand are supposedly planning an assault on the top4 in the near future.

I think the media still have us in the same light as these other teams as we have not shown (yet, I hope), the ability to attract a really big name or to be big name, I dont really blame them, as we have signed Routledge + Harewood (ok Legend), so the media will just keep linking us to these sorts of players, until, we actually show the colour of our money in the Market place!!!! Van der Vaart would be a start, I wish!!!!! I would love to see a Big name arrive such as him, but not sure what the guys are thinking at VP, but have every faith we will be ok come the start of the season. Whats the bets we either get Liverpool away or Manure at VP!!!!
