Villa & Chelsea Agree Sidwell Fee?

Villa & Chelsea Agree Sidwell Fee?

According to reports just emerging Aston Villa and Chelsea have agreed a £5.5 million fee for Steve Sidwell.

There is, at present, no confirmation on either official site so as ever, I'd take these things with pinch of salt but then again, a move for the former Reading midfielder has been muted for a long time and the 25-year-old definitely has to move on from Stamford Bridge to get his career back on track.

Some reports are suggesting this will signal the departure of Gareth Barry, I disagree, without a fee suitable being agreed - and Villa are in the driving seat on that side of things - he won't be going anywhere. We don't have to sell in order to buy.

So what do you think. Is Steve Sidwell, if he agrees personal terms and does make the move, a good signing? Our latest poll asks the very thing, what a happy coincidence.

No doubt he is a good player just never got a run in the side at Chelsea. If he was playing every week for you he will certainly do a good job.

Still a way to go, only fee's agreed so far (and only according to the press). That said, he has to move on so hopefully this will be done quickly!

Given a run in the team and some confidence-building by MON and the staff, I think this guy will contribute well. He's a good player and ran the show for Reading two seasons ago when they finished well in the league. Another measue of him would be to see how far Reading fell when he left and Coppell didn't have a good enough replacement.
