West Bromwich Albion midfield playmaker Jason Koumas has confirmed that there is interest from Aston Villa. He said: 'I've known about it, so it's no surprise. I'll have a break and decide what I'm going to do in a couple of weeks.'
Some reports are suggesting that Sunderland are hoping to beat Villa to the signature of £2million rated West Bromwich Albion defender Paul Robinson. Ho hum!
Ashley Young says he doesn't mind where he is played next season, as long as he is played! Full article: Ashley Young - I'll Play Anywhere
Shaun Maloney says Villa will be hot next season. The 24-year-old said: 'Next season will be a big one for everyone at the club. We really want to push into the top half of the table. Everybody in the team is looking forward to next season. There will be new players coming in but it's good to have people challenging for places. We will all have to step up a level.'
PR from one of my best mates and amongst the finest of all Villa fans (this is the man who has been to Old Trafford for something like the last 3000 years waiting for a win as it is the only away ground he's yet to see us win at!) Villa Fan In Romanian Trek
Questions to the Vital Manchester City editor on Joey Barton. All a bit academic now as he looks Newcastle United bound! So what IS Joey Barton Like?
Bill Howell of the Birmingham Mail says that Middlesvilla, sorry Middlesbrough are interested in signing Luke Moore. So they should be, but they, like all comers, can sod off! Full article: Luke Moore Boro Link Rubbish!
Villa boss Martin O'Neill has flatly denied he is showing Northern Ireland midfielder Steven Davis the door following several paper reports claiming he will be allowed to leave for a fee of around £5million. Full article: Steven Davis Has Villa Future
Villa legend Ian Taylor has thanked the Villa fans for his fond farewell. Hundreds of Villans travelled to Sixfields to see Ian Taylor's last game. The former Villa midfielder told the official site: 'It was great that so many of them came along. It had been arranged beforehand that I would play for an hour and then come off, which is what happened. The crowd gave me a great reception as I left the pitch - and then I noticed the Villa fans were leaving the ground!'
According to the Birmingham Mail, Martin O'Neill wants Villa defender Martin Laursen to extend his stay at Villa Park having recovered from his career threatening knee injury. The Danish international has just one year left on his contract and Villa want the former AC Milan player to sign on longer as long as he can stay fit.
The Lancashire Post say that Burnley might have to pay £1million to secure the signing of Villa midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba who was on loan at Turf Moor last season. Burnley manager Steve Cotterill said at the end of the season that the Djemba twins impressed in their 3 month loan spell and that he'd like to take them permanently.

Looks like soon to be former Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie might get his wish and stay in the Premiership (for one season anyway!) after Derby County showed an interest. The 30-year-old midfielder, who is a free agent this summer, said: 'My dad has always played a big role with my contracts and it will be the same again. He spoke to Derby last Sunday and thinks there might be something there for me. Derby didn't want to make any decisions until after the play-off final. They have gone up to the Premiership so that would be a good option.'
Reserve keeper Robert Olejnik, aka The Beast, is set to join Scottish team Falkirk when his contract expires on July 1st having been told his contract won't be renewed.
Goalkeeper Stephen Henderson has also left, going to Bristol City, after being released.
Villa have announced who our first home pre-season friendly opponents in 12 years will be. They are a smallish team, not sure you'll even have heard of them, they have virtual unknowns play for them, people like, Patrick Vieira, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Olivier Dacourt, Adriano, Walter Samuel and Hernan Crespo. Yup, Italian giants Inter Milan are coming to Villa Park on Saturday August 4 (ko 3pm).
Thought for the day: 'If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you even tried'.
