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.
