So Who Will Villa Sign Pt 3

So Who Will Villa Sign Pt 3

The third installment of our summer long gossip column!

We've already had 620 rumours, arguments and links! So Who Will Villa Sign Pt 2 - Click Here

Tis the end of the season - you might well have noticed, what with the league being won, the fixtures ending and the players packing their bags to go on their holidays.

So here comes the speculation and rumour season, with loads of players about to be linked to Aston Villa and hopefully a good few actually coming to Villa Park in time for the 2007/2008 season.

So back, by popular demand, is the rumours thread on the front page. See a story linking us with a player? Share it with us all. Heard a tenuous link, or seen a player around Villa Park? Let us know! Oh, and although I'll do my best to announce incoming players as soon as possible, if you hear of a signing before I do, wang it on this thread as well.

The January thread ended up with nearly 2000 article comments, spaced over several articles (the limit per article is 350, anymore than that and it slows things down too much so I'll change the threads over each time we hit the limit!)

So Far.

Out:

Are we to believe WHU when they say no bid has been made for NRC or are they just stalling so other clubs can bid and the price goes up..? (especially if he has a good tounament) this would be strange when you look at the amount of money they have been throwing around especially on wages..! so maybe MON is going all out for Sneijder..!

At this stage, I reckon we're looking at 5 players coming in. I know certain players have already been released that is leading people to believe we may be signing more, but we haven't let anybody go we'll be uncomfortable being without and for me, the rest of the summer is now about quality rather than quantity. As such, we're looking at a goalkeeper (most likely Craig Gordon), a right back (most likely Luke Young), two midfielders (Nigel Reo-Coker and one other - possibly Wesley Sneijder) and a striker (most likely Craig Bellamy or Jermaine Defoe). I think most people would be pretty happy with that scenario.

Crikes,i wish you would take Defoe from us,he"s ropey beyond belief...!!Nothing more than a overhyped Vassell.............As for Sneijder...??Well lets just say its highly unlikely that Villa will win that race.........

It wouldn't suprise me if neither club is actually chasing Sneijder. All sounds like paper bull to me.

Chalky, do you get joy out of annoying people? It seems to be the same on Vital Spurs. All you talk about half the time is Defoe, yet he has still scored 18 goals this season being third choice striker. Don't be such a pessimist.

How reliable is your friend Gazvilla? Do you think it would be a good buy for Villa? And for how much money? According to someone on Vital Spurs it says on Wikipedia that Sneijder was spotted in a Hilton hotel with Daniel Levy (Spurs chairman)!!! Was probably talking a load of s*** but i really hope that it is true. Even if Sneijder don't end up at Spurs i would like to see him come to the Premiership, we want all the best players in the World playing in England.
