The Sun have a report by Pat Sheehan. I'd love to leave the article there, leave you all guessing!
Silly moment over... the report has quotes from Spurs and England midfielder David Bentley admitting that he is in talks with Villa.
At least, a rumour that is true!
The 24-year-old, who moved from Blackburn Rovers to Spurs last summer after Villa also bid, told the Sun:
'I’m in talks with Villa at the moment. I really don’t want to say much more. But we’ll see what happens. I’m hopeful of sorting it out as soon as possible.'
Well, if he is in talks with them, he'll have to say a bit more than that surely?
Apparently Villa might be able to get him for around £7million meaning Spurs take a loss of around £9million on their £16million purchase (yes, I know you can do the maths but I thought I'd help out).
The Sun go on to claim the players agent has been in talks for a few weeks and they quote from a source saying it will all be settled by July 1.
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
