Villa Bid for Rangers' Cuéllar

Villa Bid for Rangers' Cuéllar

Aston Villa have confirmed that they have agreed a fee with Rangers (well The Gers' had no choice) for their Spanish centre-back Carlos Cuéllar.

The news late on Monday evening suggested that Villa have matched a release clause in Cuéllar`s contract, and the player, who I am reliably informed was SPL player of the year last season, is expected to sign for Villa if his statement to the Rangers Official website is anything to go by:

"I came to Rangers due to the professional manner of their officials and management and their promise of success. Everything I had been told about this fantastic Club has been true and last year's UEFA Cup run is something I will never forget.

"My ambition has always been to play for my national team and I believe that playing in the biggest league in the world for Aston Villa will help me realise that"

The 27-year old will now travel to Villa Park to sort out the formalities, as Martin O`Neill looks to add another piece of the defensive jigsaw puzzler of pre-season, alongside new signings Brad Friedel, Luke Young and Nicky Shorey, not to mention last years signing Curtis Davies.

Don`t forget the attackers Marty!

I'm a Rangers fan and I can assure you Villa fans you are getting a class centre half in Cuellar. I would also like to use this to thank him for what he has done for us in the past year and wish him all the best for the future in the premiership and I hope he lives his dream of playing for Spain in the future. All the best big man!

I had faith all summer that o`neill would get the players in,Perhaps people will hold fire a bit next time it is obvious he just likes to take his time.Davies,friedel,guzan,young,shorey,sidwell,cuellar is a good haul so far,Add that to a team that finished 6th last season and we are looking very good.If we could get in a good striker now to help the other lads out we are serious contenders for the top 4.
