Move To A Big Club Matty Taylor!

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.

Good signal of intent. A future International if he continues progress. Someone else posted that I hope we sign someone quick to show our intentions to other players who might be tempted then to sign. Come on the Villa!

Yep, it has got my attention! he would be pretty expensive for you guys! No disrespect, but why would he want to go to villa? We are definatley a team on the rise & surley he would want to be part of that. Its just specualtion!

Because Pompey are at their full potential. For Villa, the sky is the limit.

Got my attention also... he would be a top signing for you, we are two clubs on the up with money to burn - altho you will have more, but it would not be the move forward for him it could be... we need matty to stay and i hope he will, how irronic would it be if the left sided pairing most pompey fans wanted to see last summer could happen anyway - but at villa...

Would be a great signing for Villa as he is real quality, but I just can't see Pompey letting him go. It's not like they need the money and as the Pompey fans have pointed out, their future looks as positive as ours

Maybe if he wants a move northwards or a fresh challenge I'd say he could do better than Villa. Then again, big wages and talk of 'potential' could make any player sign for the local pub team. But as he is already at a club on the up I'd doubt he just leave for the sake of it... if Pompey were willing to sell now. P.S. What's a mom?

Can't see why Matt would want to leave Pompey, but if he did go anywhere it would be to Tottenham....he's a lifelong Spurs fan.

Martin O'Neill is a draw for some players, others do know the potential of Villa and now we have mon and a new board, we can start to fulfil that. Also, as it says in the article, he wants to move back up nearer his home in Oxfordshire. If he is a spurs fan, then that might well be a bigger pull though. Until I see players sign on the dotted line, I'm never confident. In the shirt, on the pitch!
