OK, so all is quite on the Western Front, or at least the Villa transfer gossip front. Does that mean something is about to happen or that the door is about to close abruptly for Villa?!?! Who knows!
Martin O'Neill often leaves things until the death, who can forget the spell bindingly exciting arrival of Moustapha Salifou at the 11th hour of a transfer window? Ok, ok, maybe best forgotten come to think about it!
Not really anything concrete going on rumour wise, in fact for me there isn't even a hint of a whisper of a possible rumour. Usually there is something around! I was told that Daniel Sturridge does want to move to Villa and is prepared to wait until the summer if needs be.
Well The Times today seem to expect us to sign him today. They claim we'll grab a defender due tot he absence of Villa captain Martin Laursen and get the signing of the Manchester City striker who can move on a free in the summer.
Other than that the link to Manchester City defender Micah Richards seems to be doing the rounds, he'd be a good signing and would fit into the MON mould of young and English but do Manchester City - especially whilst still in the mix for the relegation fight - really need to sell players? It isn't as if they need money is it?
The reports claim we are prepared to pay £7million for him. I'm sure that is true but I'm not sure Citeh will have any interest letting him go.
Time will tell. The transfer window closes at 5pm.
