Aston Villa's Tuesday Transfer Rumours Round Up

Aston Villa's Tuesday Transfer Rumours Round Up

Several papers have Villa linked with out-of-favour Everton and England striker Andy Johnson. The Daily Star and The Sun both claim we are set to bid around £7m for him with Wigan, Middlesbrough and West Ham also interested.

The Steve Sidwell rumours rumble on with the Daily Mirror saying his move has been delayed as the former Reading midfielder wants a pay off from Chelsea. They claim there is a verbal agreement between the clubs for a £5million transfer but that Sidwell, who moved to Chelsea on a free last year and is paid around £50 000 a week, wants £2million settlement.

The Daily Mail say that we have tabled a £15million bid for Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Bentley and the bid has been rejected. The paper claims we were supposedly in pole position to get the 23-year-old England winger after opening discussions with his advisers, but talks stalled last night.

The papers are also full of the West Ham defender Anton Ferdinand's link to Aston Villa today. Reports suggest we are about to bid £6million but the Hammers want £8million. Meet in the middle, £7m, there job done! I'm good at this bargaining you know, especially when it isn't my money! The Mirror quote 'a source' close to West Ham saying the club 'would not be interested in any figure under £8m. They don't want Anton to go but his agent has not been in looking for a new contract so something might happen.'

If any more rumours show up I'll update this round up later!

Andy Johnson? NO NO NO NO NO NO. for a start he has no definitive skill e.g pace or height. and he played for Birmingham which means nobody will initially like him. Why are we being linked with strikers when we need a GK and a RB more than anything????????????????

Is it just me or does Ferdinand seem to be slightly overpriced? I think we could do better business elsewhere, cos from what i saw of him last season (when he wasn't injured) he made a few major mistakes. Still hoping Sidwell deal gets done soon and i'm not a great fan of Bentley, would much rather have SWP. Now, if we can get Van De Vaart and maybe Darren Bent i'll be a happy Bunny

4 signings I would be happy with. Andy Johnson would have to pull his socks up though, not been the player Everton fans had hoped for.

Johnson is ok, i would prefer to have bent to be honest, younger, pace, good finisher, gets into good positions too. Anton Ferdinand is a sod! he was taunting us after the game and is the most ugly mug i have seen and would not like to see him in the back four for Villa and at 8m you can buy a SERIOUS international defender for that figure... MON talks to not wasting money... why hand more cash to West Ham, we paid 4m too much for NRC (I think hes an ok player), 3m too much for Harewood, 8m for anton would be a complete farce
