Thursday's Aston Villa Transfer Talk

Thursday's Aston Villa Transfer Talk

Well what can I say? Yet another quiet day as far as transfer speculation is concerned......

The Mirror report that Aston Villa will be looking to sign highly rated youngster Daniel Sturridge in July, after being 'rebuffed' by Manchester City.

Sturridge, 19, has bagged himself three goals this season and is out of contract in the summer, I am told he is a Villa fan and with us riding high in the league, it may well be a dream move for the lad!!

The Mirror also reports that we are looking at Sheffield United's right-back Kyle Naughton, 20.

And finally the Birmingham Post claim that Martin O'Neill has been hinting at a move for a defender to help cover Laursen (who is out for a couple of months with a long term injury).

Thats it, what a boring day. I do hope we get a couple more bodies in, we are in the Top4 at the moment and we may not get another chance like this for a long time. Plus i want a trip to Wembley this season, so Top4 and the FA Cup would do me quite nicely, thank you.

I think even the sports journos are getting bored now, they're only concentrating on Spurz and Citeh, both of whom are good for a laugh.

Sturridge in the summer would be OK...especially if that means we get him for nothing ;)

Don't we want to win the UEFA Cup as well as the FA Cup? Or is that being too greedy?

Yeah, the links haven't been stunning this January, we usually get all sorts of daft press stories to excite and then depress us! Strurridge I think will happen and will be a good one! Welcome on board by the way NewSedition.

We wouldnt get sturridge on a free, because hes under 21 we would have to pay compensation to City. Would be a good move still though for the Villa

Only two signings so far and one of them isn't going to be playing with the first team? We need reinforcements if we want to continue in the same fashion as the first half of this amazing season!

Danny S looks like he could develop into a superstar if given the right coaching. One thing I will say is that he does have a bit of an ego on him, so might be disruptive if he signs for you. Truth be told I don't want him to leave, but if he does go hope it's to the Villa, cause I feel MON will develop him into an England international, whereas at Chelsea he'll rot on the bench.
