Defoe No & No Ridgewell Giveaway
Lets see if we can put an end to the rumours that Spurs striker Jermain Defoe is coming to Villa.
The England striker said in the Daily Mirror today:
'At the end of the day, if I was going to leave I would have gone by now. The fans know I love the club, all my friends are here so I am just looking forward to putting on a Spurs shirt and scoring many goals. There has been competition for places for the past few years now. There's so much quality in the dressing room that it keeps you on your toes so you've got to play well and that is only good for the club.'
Right, Defoe isn't coming, end of.
Meanwhile the Express and Star say that Liam Ridgewell's move to Birmingham City is in doubt because Villa won't drop their £2.5million asking price. Wolves are also apparently interested.
I don't think we should be selling him full stop, thought we were building a squad? However, good to see if he is sold, with two years left on his contract, he won't be given away.
