Villa Giant Striker Bid No Go Oh No!

Villa Giant Striker Bid No Go Oh No!

Martin O'Neill has blasted reports in the press that Villa have bid £5million for Valencia's giant striker Nikola Zigic are totally wide of the mark.

In an unusual step, to help quell the rumour, he said:

'There's not a grain of truth in the story that we've put in an offer for the player and I don't know where it's coming from. I don't even know who the player's agent is. I wouldn't normally comment but there have been so many stories claiming this as fact and people have been quoted. They're completely wide of the mark. So I felt I had to put the record straight.'

So there you go then!

Come on Martin, who are we after!!!!? ;o)

Man I liked this rumour if for nothing but for my Pro Evo team having set piece threat, im fully expecting to see Emile Heskey walk through the doors at a press conference soon with James Milner and Titus Bramble Another depressing Transfer Window

Not sure Stig although it did worry me when the Villa rang me the other day to ask me how bad my legs really were and what size boots I wear! (If a joke is worth telling it is worth telling 20 times !)

Thats a relief!!! I thought we were trying to sign someone then, I am glad MON has come out and confirmed we have no bid for anyone. - I read between the lines.

Its good that he does confirm certain players who he is noti interested in, but would be even better if he can tell us what players he is bidding on. He definately isnt as open as the rest of the Premiership managers!
