According to Shaun Maloney's agent three clubs have contacted him about the availability of his client. I'm wondering if they've contacted the club myself?
Maloney has struggled to impress since his £1 million move from Celtic and there have been constant 'homesick' rumours and numerous reports linking him with a switch back to the Hoops.
To be honest this saga is more boring than the Barry one and yet again there are absolutely no quotes from the player or the agent but I thought somebody might be interested.
John Halliwell, the long lost brother of the 3 witches from Charmed and agent of Shaun has apparently told BBC Sport that three clubs are interested in his client but that Villa have not discussed any potential move and neither have they received any bids.
The Beeb, in what no doubt will be used as a means to raise the license tax further, originally (ha) state one of the clubs is Celtic but refuse to speculate on who the other two clubs are.
Whether this is the excuse for the rehash, or whether this is the gem that implies there is some truth here, I'll leave for you to decide.
But Maloney has been left out of George Burley's Scottish squad for the Northern Ireland friendly and we all know how much Maloney wants to play for Scotland. Halliwell added that Maloney wants to secure first team football so he doesn't fall down the international pecking order any further.
So if Maloney has failed to show more than glimpses when played, and has failed to show much more in training, if we can recoup our fee plus wages is it time to move him on?
