Davis Can Leave Villa For £5million

Davis Can Leave Villa For £5million

Busy morning for Villa news!

According to the Express and Star, without any quotes I must add, Northern Ireland midfielder Steven Davis has been told he can leave Aston Villa.

The 22-year-old led a charmed life the season before as a virtual ever present under David O'Leary, which led him to being voted the Player of the Year. However this season he faded and quickly found himself on the bench or worse, out of the squad.

The report claims the player who was last year linked to Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson said to be a keen (pun intended) admirer, would cost in the region of £5million.

Fulham's new boss and former Northern Ireland boss Lawrie Sanchez has already been linked to Davis and fellow team mate Aaron Hughes.

Must admit, I prefer the links to players incoming than outgoing, we can't build if we keep selling surely!?

Maybe a season long loan would make more sense?

Still, in Martin O'Neill we trust and until anything happens, it is all paper talk.

He'll be worth more than 5 mil by the end of next season.

Presumably Davis has stated his desire to leave, otherwise this about turn by MON would completely go against everything he was saying a mere seven days or so ago, about not pushing out the young talent. Then again of course, the story could be a complete fabrication.

insane-sorry MON but you are completely wrong on this if it is true, and also Moore and Ridgewell if those rumours come to Fruition.

Don't do it MON, please. If we have to loan him out for 12months. He'll be worth £10m in a couple of seasons, even in todays market value. If Davis has given MON an ultimatum then I suppose he's forced Villa's hand. But the lads under contract, give him a slap and tell him to behave.

In 2 years time Davo will be worth nothing as he only has 2 years on his contract...unless he extends it. I would rather we kept him, unless we are definitely getting two top quality midfielders like Sneijder (who is only 6 months older than Davis) and Barton. However, he was very average last season so £5 million would be good money...but only if we have other players already signed!! I would sell Ridgewell as part exchange for Curtis Davies, but definitely keep Luke this season at least.

no chance,wont believe it till i see it officially. cant believe martin will sell although even i am doubting now if he will get a game with some of the centre midfielders we are being linked with 4 next year.big mistake it would be to sell him as he would definately come back to haunt us,he is top quality and thought we are trying to build a squad not destroy one.mccann,hughes,hendrie,djembax2 and ridgewell would be the only likely ones i think we will sell.
