Villa Keeper Isn't Being Forced Out
Thomas Sorensen has denied he is being forced out of Villa Park following reports that Martin O'Neill is after Bolton's keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.
He told viasatsport.com 'There is actually not much news in that, because Villa have been linked with lots of players. I know I am good enough to be the first choice at the club and don't care about the rumours in the English media. I believe I will be playing for Aston Villa next season too. I feel myself that I played well last season.'
'Therefore, I don't believe that Martin O'Neill wants to offload. Rather, I believe O'Neill is looking for a back-up.'
Too right, why would we need to be getting rid of him? He is an international keeper, we need to add to the squad and keep players in EVERY position on their toes, by letting the likes of Sorensen go, we'd not be doing that now would we?! The Danish international has just one year left on his contract though, I guess a new deal will be offered, even if only to save him being able to leave on a free next year.
