Not much on the rumour front today.
The Daily Mail say that Manchester City are competing with Villa for the signature of 37-year-old Blackburn keeper Brad Friedel. They claim that City were alerted that Villa were set to put a £2.5million offer in for the USA keeper. They go on to claim that Rovers new boss Paul Ince is looking to Spurs keeper Paul Robinson (also linked to us, wrongly it seems by current whispers) and that Friedel's position is no longer secure. Arsene Wenger is also apparently monitoring the situation for Arsenal.
The Independent say that Spurs are 'closing in on an offer' for 23-year-old England and Blackburn winger David Bentley, who has also been strongly linked to Villa in the last week or so. The paper repeat the false claim that we have already offered £10million for him and add 'Spurs are prepared to negotiate with Blackburn over a series of players they are willing to offer in part exchange, which include the goalkeeper Paul Robinson, although he continues to interest Villa and may prefer to move there.'
The official site also have Ben Foster from Man Utd and Robert Green of West Ham amongst today's links.
Meanwhile Eidur Gudjohnsen's agent has told Sky Sports News that the Barcelona striker isn't keen on a move to Villa after recent links. The 29-year-old is apparently interesting the usual suspects including Villa, Manchester City, West Ham and Portsmouth. His father, who is also his agent, said: 'I have seen some speculation about Eidur and Aston Villa, but I don't think he was very keen on that. I think if he was to return to England he would prefer to go to London or Manchester rather than Birmingham. There are a few clubs interested, but there is nothing serious at the moment. I think he will leave Barcelona and he is keeping his options open at present.'
