Villa To Do The Hokey-Cokey For Huddlestone?!

Villa To Do The Hokey-Cokey For Huddlestone?!

James Nursery has an interesting article in The Mirror today.

The report is claiming Villa are going to do the Hokey-Cokey and use Nigel Hokey-Cokey as part of a swap deal for Spurs midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

This swap deal I can believe, NRC hasn't really impressed that much since moving from West Ham for over £7million in 2007 and has fallen down the pecking order and even been used as a stand in right-back, a position I've heard he hates playing in.

The report goes on to suggest that Ashley Young still isn't a happy bunny and is also thinking about his future following the departure of Villa captain Gareth Barry and repeats the link to Spurs with Harry Redknapp being prepared to use a combination of two players out of David Bentley, Jermaine Jenas or Huddlestone in part of the deal.

I don't think there can be any thoughts of letting Young go but as said, I could believe that NRC might want a change and so a swap might be on the cards?

One source said in The Mirror Sport that the managers are 'playing tennis, bouncing ideas off each other'.

Hmmm, wonder who'll win that particular game then! Bent for Heskey 15 - love..! Salifou for Jermaine Jenas 30- love, Hokey Cokey for Huddlestone .. first service... oh you get the idea, why not play yourselves, it is all the rage!!!

Villa have however confirmed that no approaches have been made for Ashley Young, long may that situation continue, although interest from Chelsea is also being indicated.

Meanwhile, Steven Defour's agent, Paul Stefani, has confirmed there have been on bids for the 21-year-old Belgian and Standard Liege midfielder despite press links to both Villa and Liverpool. agent has confirmed that there is yet to be any bids lodged for his charge. The agent told Neiuwsblad, probably the first publication I read each morning on waking to my caviar and boiled egg breakfast: 'There has been a lot of interest, but Standard have yet to receive any official bids. Aston Villa and Liverpool are great clubs where Steven would certainly enjoy playing. Would Standard let him go? Everything depends on the offer. Manchester United said Cristiano would not be sold.'
