Leighton Baines? Villa's Tuesday Transfer Talk
The only link today is in The Mirror . They claim that Villa are after Everton left-back Leighton Baines.
Apparently Villa are willing to offer 27-year-old summer recruite Nicky Shorey as part of the deal. They say the former Reading man wants first team football. Strange he's made no impact whatsoever since joining Villa, does beg the question, would Everton want him if he can't make our first team with our established left-back Freddie Bouma out injured?
The Mirror say that the Villa boss is a fan of player, (how many times have we read this during the transfer window).
Baines moved according to the Everton official site for an undisclosed fee, although the red top says it was £6million from Wigan in the summer of 2007.
Baines is an Everton fan, so would he want a move? The paper claim we can offer cash and Shorey and put Baines on better wages.
And that, as far as I can see gossip wise, is that for the day. How boring this transfer window is becoming. 20 days in and still no excitement....!!!!
Come on Villa, break the bank and get us Didier Drogba from Chelsea! I also hear Robinho might be available after storming out of Manchester City! lol
