Another Manchester City Player Linked To Villa

According to The Sun, Villa are lining up a swoop for yet another Manchester City player!

We've so far been linked with Michael Johnson, Micah Richards and Daniel Sturridge now if this red top report is to be believed, we want their Under-21 England international keeper Joe Hart.

Yes please!

Joe, if I may be so bold (bald?) as to call him that, is out of contract in the summer, as is other reported target Sturridge who has refused several new deal offers from the Eastland outfit. He has alos been sidelined following the arrival of Shay Given who cost the money bags club 14million from Newcastle - and to be fair, worth every penny, what a great keeper...!

So, not sure about the substance of the report, there are no 'sources' or quotes but hey, this would make sense, we are building the backbone for the England side as well as for Villa so seems exactly the sort of player we'd want.

just so you know... the sun is talking crap Hart signed a new 5 year contract last October - confirmed on official city site.

The Sun talking crap? Not possible surely!? lol Nice to know the facts are top notch in that then! NEXT...!
The Fear
Why do we need another keeper??? Guzan hardly features. Rather get benjani on the cheap e.g 2M
medzy
but when he signed that contract he didn't have Given ahead of him did he!
merlin
and Freidel isn't getting any younger :-)

I'm not saying he won't leave I'm just commentating on the sun article. Why would he leave us to be your number 2 though? He's not gonna dislodge Friedel. The only half decent team he'd have a chance of maybe getting in is Arsenal. I can see Sturridge going your way though - if you offer him the most money the little mercenary.

goatboy...im sure you will get a mention in the "lets all laugh at city" thread this vile forum has got.

MCFC_Goatboy - oh yes indeed, we are the club with the billions! We're the ones offering ridiculous contracts to overrated players! Well spotted! Robinho wasn't mercenary in the slightest to join you for 160,000 a week, no no no...

There is a big differnce between Robinho, who plays for brazil and sturridge who has played 12 times for City and most iof then as sub. Would Villa pay him the 60k he is reportedly asking for? I would want a guarantee off the lad that he would score every other game. Hart contray to reports is not out of contract this summer as he signed a 5 year deal back in October and therefore will cost Villa some money, by I doubt whether he would want to swap the bench at City for the bench at Villa, as BF is the better keeper of the two. This lad wants to be a number one.

Sturridge would come to us for 30k a week. Ive heard he's a villa boy
medzy
Wouldn't want Hart, do not rate him or his attitude highly atall.
benji_starsky_avfc
Hey Buzz, Goatboy and BM, what's happening? Thought Villa were just having Sir-wedge from us! Hart, Ned and Micah aren't gong anywhere, least of all to Villa park!
kennyclementstache
I know Joe and he is a top pro, but all he wants to do is play football, i can see him leaving but it wouldn't be to any club where he will warm the bench. I'd love to see him at Villa but if we can;r guarentee him a place ahead of freidel then there is no chance of him signing.
smirnoffshox
Citeh fans are very amusing. Any english player with half a brain's gonna leave greedlands for VP
