Saturday's Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Saturday's Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Mostly re-hashed rumours today.

The Daily Mirror say Villa will bid for James Milner once Gareth Barry makes his move to Liverpool. Frankly that is hogwash, we don't need to sell in order to buy.

The Daily Express say that Martin O'Neill is 'leading the chase' for the signature of Chelsea's Shaun Wright-Phillips who reports yesterday claimed has been told he can leave Stamford Bridge. Villa have tried twice before to get the England winger.

The Express also say that we are in the frame to get Blackburn winger David Bentley but that his destination is more likely to be Chelsea or Tottenham.

The Guardian say that Villa are after Reading's Irish players striker Kevin Doyle and midfielder Stephen Hunt. Sunderland are also interested.

Whilst we are in Reading, we might as well cover the story in The Sun! They claim the Royals have warned would be suitors including Aston Villa, West Ham, Portsmouth and Newcastle that Nicky Shorey, who doesn't want to drop down a division, that he'll not be sold on the cheap and have a price of around £3.5million. Their director of football Nick Hammond has also confirmed that there have as yet been no offers for the full back.

The Telegraph have covered the rumour that Villa are set to bid around £6million for West Ham defender Anton Ferdinand with Spurs also interested.

Other links today according to the gossip page on the official site:

David de Gea of Atletico Madrid and Steve Sidwell again.

Oh, and apparently there were some 'interesting' comments by Martin O'Neill acting as a pundit for the Croatia v Turkey game. I didn't hear what he said (trying to find out) but apparently there were hints of possible arrivals from one or other of those international teams. Will update or add it as an article comment if I get more details OR if you heard what he said, please do tell us all in the article comments!!!!!

Did I ever tell you that my auntie's cat is closely related to Ruud van Nistelrooy's cat? Anyway, they were talking yesterday and........ Just as likely as some of the press links surely?!
