Plenty of rumours, including quotes from Harry Redknapp, that Villa will win the race ahead of Portsmouth for Spurs defender Younes Kaboul. The Sun say Villa are close to signing the 22-year old to make it three signings in 24 hours. They claim we've offered £4million.
The Times also claim that both Everton and Villa will battle it out to buy Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson. The England U21 star has turned down a new five-year contract at City and that could spark a bidding war with Arsenal, Newcastle and Liverpool also apparently in the race.
According to Norwich site Canary Corner Villa are looking at a £25million double swoop on West Ham for the much linked central defender Anton Ferdinand plus former Canary, striker Dean Ashton. They claim we'll bid around £15m for Ashton and £10m for Ferdinand. With a sell on clause in his contract, Norwich would also benefit apparently.
One of the gossip sites has linked us to Atletico Madrid fullback Gourkas Seitaridis. Hmmm, not convinced!
Another claims Villa are interested in Swedish international Sebastian Larsson. Newcastle and Wigan are also linked to the 23-year-old Blues player who was bought from Arsenal. A price of around £5million is being talked about and apparently he's been linked with an exit ever since the Blues were relegated. Must admit I think there should be a rule that players should have to stay with the team that goes down for one season, afterall they are the players that contributed to the relegation aren't they?!
