Only a couple of links today, how very boring!
Villa are being linked with Sporting Gijon's defender Roberto Canella who is apparently rated at around £10million. The 20-year-old left-back is highly rated in Spanish League and is apparently on our hit list with rumours growing that Nicky Shorey our summer signing from Reading could be on his way out already - with Spurs mentioned several times.
Marlon Harewood's agent Phil Sproson has said that Stoke City will have to pay if they want to buy the former West Ham striker from Villa. He said in the Sentinel 'Stoke are showing an interest in the player. But they will have to buy because Villa won't loan him.'
Adding, 'They are looking to sell him in this window if they can, or in the summer if not, but Marlon's contract runs until the end of next season. Villa will listen to realistic offers, but if someone tries to nick him it will not happen. It's a case of whoever strikes a deal with Villa first will probably get him.'
The agent also says the striker isn't in a 'fantastic rush' to leave Villa but does want to find regular first team football, which to be fair is very understandable. He obviously isn't in Martin O'Neill's plans, some would say he never should have been, but they would just be being churlish! ;o)
Sproson added, 'he understands the situation at Villa. They are a top-five club now and the standard there is unbelievably high. There are England players in front of him in the team.'
Must say he seems to have been a model professional, it can't be easy to come to a high profile club and spend the majority of your time on the bench but I've not seen any moans from him in the press.
