Sometimes you just have to laugh!
The Sun reporter Pat Sheehan today suggests Spurs want Villa star Ashley Young and are prepared to swap him for David Bentley plus £8million in cash.
The report says Martin O'Neill will be 'desperate' to hold on to the 23-year-old winger. With 3 years left on his contract, Villa don't need any desperation do they?
Never shy of being in the press talking about other teams players, Harry Redknapp already said this week he wanted Gareth £arry and now it appears he has set his sights on another Villa player. Hmmm!
Another report, this time in the Daily Mail say that Villa are looking to bid for Spurs midfielder Jermaine 'with an e' Jenas and they value the 26-year-old at £10million. He always looks decent to me. The Vital Spurs site call him Mr Marmite... for those that don't know, it means you either love him or hate him!
The same report says Villa are set to beat Wolves to the signing of Serbian midfielder Nenad Milijas. A report earlier in the week claimed the opposite! The report claims MON will travel to watch the player in the Serbia v Austria game tonight. Hmmm, isn't MON on holiday in America?
Meanwhile Middlesbrough chief executive Keith Lamb has told the press that they will sell England winger Stewart Downing if the price is right. Lamb told Sky Sports News: 'Who knows whether Stewart will be here in August. If he is he will be playing for us in the Championship. But if the right offer comes along he will be allowed to leave.' Downing is currently recovering from a foot injury he picked up in the game v Villa but Lamb is confident the 24-year-old will make a full recovery saying he is a good healer. Spurs, Villa, Manchester City and Manchester United... hang on, I could just link all the teams really, the press do!... have been linked with moves for the player.
Our latest poll asks what price you'd sell Ashley Young at if at all.
