Wednesday's Aston Villa Transfer Talk

Wednesday's Aston Villa Transfer Talk

The Mirror today claim that we are after Manchester City's 19-year-old striker Daniel Sturridge. As mentioned the other day on Vital Villa, the contract talks at City seem to have halted and the young prospect could be available. Looks a great talent and would fit in with Martin O'Neill's young and mainly British policy! Sturridge is available on a free in the summer as his contract ends. City boss Mark Hughes says he is hopeful of keeping him 'We are still negotiating and we hope it can be concluded soon' but the player is stalling on negotiations. Blackburn are also said to be interested.

I believe, as also mentioned the other day, that Michael Johnson might also be available and has been linked to Villa before.

The Daily Mail claim that 30-year-old Chelsea striker Didier Drogba would like to return to his former club Marseille. How about doing it via a journey to Villa Park for a season or so?!

Also another player we have been linked with, this time Newcastle's Charles N'Zogbia has apparently had a training ground bust up with Andy Carroll. Maybe this will hasten his exit. Good news for Villa if he is available or just too much trouble? I have NO clue at all...!

i use 2 play football with dan when i was about 14 he was a beast then! be wicked to see him in a villa shirt!!

Fair point, but just wished we snapped him up on the 1st day of window, along with Heskey (would be great competition for Carew) Add Mcgeady for competition to Milner and Young and then Johnson and Lescott (can both play centre back also) in the summer and we would have been sorted! Easy this management!!
In MON we trust!

Think with Defoe, once he knew Spurs wanted him back, that was him sold, which is fair enough, he is a London lad and obviously likes spurs/arry (no idea why! LOL). But agree we can and will get world class players, maybe MON plans for that further down the line. Would hate (and we won't anyway) for us to do a Man City but then the base is there for us now, next step is the difficult and interesting one!

Totally agree Fear. Really think we have missed the boat on Defoe and/or Podolski. Proven world class players, with great goal scoring records. Sod the ego's and attitudes, if they score goals the rest of the squad would love them regardless. Talk of MON not buying people with personality problems is a load of tosh. He brought Bellemy to Celtic after all! To reach the next level we need to buy world class players and with world class players usually comes attitude! He has the experience and personality to handle them.
In MON we trust!
21/01/2009 16:43:00
Don't understand why people think we can't afford players like Drogba and why people assume we can't attract top players, we are in the top four, are a massive club, great ground, the training ground is as good as any in Europe. Agree MON might not want him, but not that we can't be in the mix for such players. This is a new age!

Apparantly Johnsons a bit of trouble, preferes Night clubs to football clubs. Think he's being punished with no first team action. 2m Sturridge and 5m Johnson is funny, that may be what they're worth, but you wouldn't get djemba djemba back for 2m let alone a promising young English striker.
21/01/2009 15:10:00
Would Johnson want to come us to be second choice? Surely he would choose first team football with another club (Wigan after they sell Palacios)
