Are Villa About To Sign Charles N'Zogbia?

Are Villa About To Sign Charles N'Zogbia?

I have to hold my hands up, I never really know whether to do articles like this, hence I rarely do. And no, I have no need at all to chase ratings and 'hits' as this site does very nicely without resorting to such things!

Anyway, this morning I had a bit of a tip off that the rumours we are set to sign Newcastle United's Charles N'Zogbia were totally wrong and that Villa had no interest in the winger at all.

End of discussion as far as I could see despite the player recently saying he would very much like to join Villa.

Anyway, it has been hinted to me via two sources since that Villa are on the verge of signing him with one going as far as saying he was having a medical this afternoon.

The 22-year-old told L'Equipe at the start of January: 'I'm at a turning point in my career. My agents are talking with Tottenham and Villa and, from what they've told me, Arsenal could also be in the frame. I have a preference for the Gunners but they are three great clubs.'

Later in the month he was quoted on Sky as saying 'The clubs that are interested in me remain the same, but it's tough because they are asking for a ridiculous sum of money. Arsenal and Aston Villa are top teams in the English league, so I'd be happy to join them. I don't have a priority. Both are good clubs, but I have a little preference for Aston Villa. They have been improving as a team in the last few years, which proves that they can do well. Aston Villa's manager is a good coach according to my friends I think he could make me better.'

He was also, according to the BBC, involved in a training ground fight with Andy Carroll.

So there you have it, are we about to sign N'Zogbia? If we are, you heard it here first, if we aren't then move along, you ain't seen me, right?!

He will sign for around 6 million Tomorrow,The hold up is with the medical and it is because they are still measuring his penis at B.HEATH,Which is according to my usually reliable source "bloody massive".
