Looks like now really is time for action, with the Steve Sidwell signing imminent reports in the Mirror and the Mail today claim that Villa have also put in a bid for Blackburn's David Bentley.
Both reports suggest Villa have tested Blackburn's resolve with a £10million bid.
Hogwash! £10million? Lets face it, the £10m quoted would make no sense at all, he is a young and gifted England international and Blackburn have already said they don't want to sell one of their star assets and will only allow him to go for the right price. Much like the Barry situation for Villa though, Bentley has made it clear he would like to move on and once that happens, the players usually get their way!
Other reports are suggesting that Spurs manager Juande Ramos is willing to sell half of his team with Aston Villa, Newcastle United, Portsmouth, Sunderland, Hull City, Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers apparently watching with interest.
The report in the Sun claim says that Ramos is looking to trim down the squad massively with following teams after these players: Robinson (Aston Villa), Chimbonda (Pompey and Newcastle), Dawson (Newcastle and Hull), Lee (PSV), Malbranque (Aston Villa), Keane (Liverpool), Boateng (Real Betis), Tainio (Hamburg), Bent (Sunderland) and Ghaley (Blackburn).
Wouldn't mind us going for Chimbonda and Robbie Keane, then again I've got no money, don't own Villa and am not the manager!!!
