Aston Villa Transfer Rumours!

Ok, it is a slow news day, so having just looked on the BBC rumour site, I noticed a rumour from the Daily Mirror.

It is obviously full of facts and quotes and will definitely happen and be announced within the next 2 minutes or so by both clubs....or not.

Anyway, the rumour is that Martin O'Neill will re-visit the summer long link to Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz in January and will bid 18million.

The rumour goes on to suggest that Marlon 'the Hare' Harewood would be used as 'bait'.

There you go, that will seal it, how can Blackburn possibly refuse?

Roque has 2 Premiership goals with 7 starts so far this season for Rovers and unless I am very much mistaken (lets face it, highly probably) he signed a new deal with the Ewood Park outfit in the summer and was also joined there by his brother.

Meanwhile Brazilian striker Ronaldo is said to have pleaded with Manchester City to go back in for him now he is over his knee injury.

I hear it on very good authority (my mirror, not the mirror) that we will be bringing Michael Owen to Villa Park next year, although that could have a lot to do with the fact we play Newcastle United at home on the last day of the season!

I think he will go to Citeh. Not unknown we're interested in this guy,

Fear, you need to stop with this Oweness because someones gonna pick up on it and I'm gonna start believing it. Don't do this to me. A January full of Owen rumours with no Owen at the end of them is more than I can take.
PTP
Sorry PTP. At least I've moved away from the Ruud van Nistelrooy links now though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o)
The Fear
Heard that in the summer but he is still at Rovers and that is where he will stay.

Bless you Northcliffe.

Santa Cruz would be quite the buy, but just not sure he'd want to move away from sunny Blackburn...
Boxer
Santa cruz is over-rated,Yeah he had one good season,So did benni mcarthy,Doyle will be coming in at villa park.
lerneravfc
Ince obviously knows Villa's finance details because he says we can't afford Santa Cruz anyway.
AMS78
Not a chance.......Harewood is your best player!!!!! ha ha ha

More likely that we'll land Heskey as opposed to Santa Cruz, the latter will no doubt end up at The City Of Manchester Stadium with his old boss Mark Hughes?
glensider
I think your right about Santa Cruz, glensider. Villa will get Doyle in the January transfer window. But I would like to see the likes of Huntelaar & Diego at Villa Park. I know the we have a very good midfield, Diego would give us that edge we need.
teznuke
Personally I'd welcome Kevin Doyle teznuke, but rumours abound that he's in discussions with Reading about a possible contract extension, so maybe he might not be a January option for us.
