Finally eh?!? Reports are that the price tag is 8million or 8.5million. Still pending a medical & personal terms too. But, it's about time. Not sure if I agree with him being worth twice as much as Steve D though. Oh well, that's one down, now SWP, Jussi & Defoe are next on the list according to a number of national rags.

Depends what price and player you benchmark this against. I wanted him, so I'm very happy.

Glad to see the deals finally done. There's been a lot of talk on here about Steven Davis and as much as I liked the little fella he was useless when he did play last season. And lets not forget if reports are to be believed he's the one who's thrown his toys out the pram and said guarantee me a starting spot or I'm off. We don't need the kind of player. I don't think you can say who's wroth what nowadays, if you want someone you pay the going rate

Lets play hardball with Fulham like WHU have with us demand £7.5m for Davis (a Full international) and settle for £6m not the £4m reported.... Oh and sell on clauses etc surely.

A player is worth what you can get for him, simple as that. To us Reo-Coker is worth £8.5 million as he is the type of player we need. Davis is worth less as we need his type of player less. If we can find another club that needs his attributes we will be able to get a higher price, if not we should get what we can as he clearly won't be playig more than a cameo role for us in the future.

with the way fees are going in a few years time 8.5m will look like nothing and its the going rate today (which I blame west ham for as they started the big money for average players trend). Its a good start now keep em coming randy.

Refreshing to see and hear of a player who really wants to come to the Villa, so much so that no-one came near really. I think it was protracted because Wham wanted to mess him about because of the aggro he gave them.

If he signs (and I think he will) he can say goodbye to his England career. England u21 captains haven't fared so well playing for the Villa.

Hoo-bloody-ray!! Hopefully tomorrows negotiations go according to plan, the medical a mere formality, and Nige puts pen to paper and becomes a Villan. I'm delighted that he's coming onboard, and think we've brought a quality player at a very fair price.
