Tuesdays Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

Tuesdays Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

The press today claim that Tottenham Hotspur are willing to sell Darren Bent and Roman Pavlyuchenko. The report also says that Happy Arry would like to buy Djibril Cisse. LOL. Anyway, only mentioning this because we were linked with Bent last January and he appears to be the sort of player that Martin O'Neill is trying to bring to Villa, ie young and on the fringes of the England squad. He scored 17 goals in all competitions this season, so despite the fact most Spurs fans hate him, he can't be doing that badly!

Yawn fest warning. The Daily Star say that Spurs and Manchester City will do battle (great, wonder if that will be televised?) for Gareth Barry. The suggestion is that Liverpool aren't as interested this summer so Mark Hughes and Harry Redknapp will try to grab him for around £12million instead. Not convinced, MON has said if a top four team come in for him, as they can obviously offer Barry Champions League football, he will look at the situation but we could easily match whatever wages Spurs want to offer and would Barry be wanting to go to City purely for silly wages? I think he is more interested in playing in Europe and with Villa - as long as MON behaves this time around - he can do just that.

The reports that Everton and Fulham are interested in Villa midfielder Nigel Hokey-Cokey are also doing the rounds today. One paper says that NRC will have 'showdown' talks with the Villa boss. It is thought he's hated playing at right-back and disliked being on the bench even more, so I guess the link to him outwards would make sense but if he is sold, I hope we more than re-coup the £8.5million paid for him?

Shock horror, Villa are being linked to none other than Newcastle United and former Liverpool and Read Madrid striker Michael Owen. Hmmm, I wonder? Our latest poll asks if you'd like Owen at Villa or not! See the full article for details: Michael Owen To Villa Park???

Bent is a whole lot more of a better option than Owen.

I think Barry should opt for Spurs because they are going place and it will be a nice to finish to his carrer playing with a top side.

we could do with both I think? We've got to push on and we need goals goals and more goals. JC seems the only striker able to shoot let alone score since Jan time?

Great johna - PLEASE lets have a Villa post that vaguely mentions Spurs without a plssing contest over which club is better or bigger. Not again - just ignore johna and maybe he will crawl back into his hole that is the Spurs fansites.
