Dutch Midfield General Villa bound?
The weekend press have linked Villa and Manchester United to 22-year-old Dutch player Wesley Sneijder. The tough Ajax midfielder has played 121 times with 38 goals for Ajax and also has 31 caps with six goals for Holland.
According to wikepedia, Sneijder made his debut for Ajax in a 2-0 win at SC Excelsior on 22 December 2002 when trainer Ronald Koeman, troubled by an injury-filled squad called him up, advised by Danny Blind, the then-coach of the Ajax youth-squad. He rapidly established himself in the role of midfield general. Despite his slight stature, he is strong on the ball and his passing range is enhanced by his two-footedness.
