Villa To Make Jermain Defoe Bid?

Villa To Make Jermain Defoe Bid?

Not a great deal in the press today, they are probably recovering from too much turkey and drink. However the People claim that Portsmouth will have to sell England striker Jermain Defoe as their owner Sacha Gaydamak is still looking to balance the books.

The red top claims that Villa are willing to pay £10million for the former Spurs striker who cost Pompey £7.5million last January.

There are also whispers around that the Emile Heskey signing is a done deal and yet other reports say that Liverpool are set to bid.

Time will tell, not long now for the transfer window to open.

Must admit I'd LOVE to see Defoe sign, I banged on about it last year as I thought it was a major mistake not taking quality like that when available. Hey, maybe we could take Peter Crouch off their hands as well to give us some real options up front, afterall he has more goals than Defoe so far this year!

This story was first heard down here on the south coast just before Christmas. Given that he's going through the motions with us, perhaps there's something in it.

I'd rather have Crouch. How JD going to fit in with Gabby?

I'd be happy with signing Defoe. As long as he doesn't try holding us to ransom with the wages, as I think he would. £60k a week would be MORE than generous.

Can't see why Defoe and Gabby couldn't play together, would be better than the tired John Carew flicking headers on to no one in particular I'd think?! Nice bit of pace with Young and as.

Has he been impressive at any time for you guys UKTony, just going through the motions since Harry left, or has he not impressed you at all?

Defoe is a goalscorer and that's what we need, would be a very impressive signing in my book.

I would love Defoe more than anyone. Then we can rest Gabby from time to time. Then either Crouch or Heskey to play when JC is tired or injured! Think we would really be able to rotate then!

Defo Defoe. Not many instinctive predators about in the Prem. He is in Owens class IMO. I do have a problem with his temperament sometimes, but got to be worth a go, because we could get rid of quite easy if it didn't work out.
