Move To A Big Club Matty Taylor!
According to Lisa Smith , now Villa correspondent for The Birmingham Post, and a top lass too, Villa are in talks with Portsmouth utility player Matthew Taylor.
Blimey, I hope that is true, his goals are awesome and as he got 9 last season (including the two against us), that would be a great help to the strikers and team!
Taylor can play in defence and midfield and according to the report, the 25-year-old, born in Morse Land (Oxford for the uninitiated) wants to move to a club nearer his home in Oxfordshire 'according to a source close to the player'. Bloody moms, why don't they keep quiet!
Lisa also says that the budget for the summer is around £30million, a sum mentioned in other reports as well. I am convinced we'll spend more than that if the right players are available though and to be fair, we need to spend more than that to play catch up, especially with some of our fringe players leaving.
Apparently targets include a goalkeeper, striker, midfielder and two defenders, no mention of a partridge or a pear tree though.
