Sunday's Villa Press Talk Including Joe Cole Bid?

Sunday's Villa Press Talk Including Joe Cole Bid?

Press talk today suggests we are after Chelsea winger Joe Cole. Apparently Phil Scolari is looking to sign Robinho, that alongside the arrival of Deco could well put the England international out in the cold and the papers are saying that MON would be willing to stump up the £10million (others apparently say £16m) needed to attract Cole, who has just two years left on his contract.

The Sunday Mercury are linking Villa with Rangers 26-year-old defender Carlos Cuellar after the Scottish giants early European exit.

Also in the Mercury is a link to £2.5million rated Czech midfielder Jaroslav Plasil who currently plays for Spanish club Osasuna. Fulham are also apparently interested.

The rest of the talk is about Barry and we've covered that in a separate article!

Joe Cole? Hmmm, yes please. Then a striker if you would be so kind and then watch the season take off!

Yea I would take Johnson as well he did us in last season and is a exciting prospect. I am not too bothered whether we keep buying young english talent I would hate it to put off other foriegn players or even claims of MON being racist lol?! Agree with thirtyone though Cole would be on a massive salary and is a London boy would he take a drop as Sidders has? I am not so sure.

Some nice links today, eh guys? I see it unlikely that we'd bid for Joe Cole though, for the wage issue already mentioned. However nice and exciting it would be to see him at VP I just don't see it happening. Cuellar is a bit more realistic, and that would make for some interesting competition at centre-back, we'd have three top quality players there in Davies, Laursen and the addition of Cuellar. Oh, and three and a half quality players, sorry, I forgot Knight.

Can't see the cole rumour being true. It's only since we signed a few players that we're being linked with anyone that someone with the remotest imagination can conjur up. He'd be too expensive and provide too little impact.
