Aston Villa Summer Transfer Thread Pt 3

Part three of the summer long torture thread. Sorry, did I say torture, I meant TRANSFER thread. Last summer we filled about 10 or 11 of these up with article comments so lets see if we can't out do ourselves and maybe this time we'll all end up happy and positive with the incoming and outgoing players!?

So basically use this thread as you wish, who have you seen linked, who would you like in, which linked players would be good, bad or just plain ugly?

We also have the forum thread to endure, sorry I meant enjoy:
Click Here for start for and here the current last page (62)

And in time honoured fashion, I'll simply say....

Over to you Mr O'Neill !

Movements so far:

Out

Gareth Barry £12million to Manchester City
Stuart Taylor on a free to Manchester City

to be honest i am not convinced either of them know what to do. 3 down on last season already, and not even a sniff of a new signing. very very very frustrating and depressing, especially when nearly everyother club are active in the window.

Heard a rumour from a friend of a friend, i know b4 u all slate me, here goes Bentley will sign but he pissed mon off with his comment the other week, one player as well in b4 pre season but didnt say who, he also said Mon is very relaxed and is still insistant on playing a waiting game. If true how annoying, lets face it the latter one sounds very true.

I would like to see Bellamy down the Villa. I know he has an attitude and he is a bit injury prone but with all the strikers being linked with Citeh he could be surplus to requirements. He would suit our attacking style to a tee.

Yeah astonsteve, i enjoy anything that gives me the slightest bit of hope that MON is doing something with his days. It's when pre season comes and it doesn't come off that people start having a pop at you...but that's not your fault, you've heard a rumour and shared it with us, giving us more information than we'd have otherwise. I appreciate it.

The real transfers won't start until the 1st July the majority of players are away on there holidays so most of what is happening now is agents talking players up plus contracts go up to the end of this month. Personally I reckon we'll make a couple of quick signings

what happened to Bentley? seems to have gone quiet on that one..... Why does it always take so long for us to wrap up signings? Or has this one fallen by the wayside? Didn't Bentley himself say he was trying to finalise a transfer to Villa about 2 weeks ago?

spurs have apparently accepted 3 bids of 8.5 mil for huddlestone with villa thought to be one of the teams. again no quotes or anything. dont shoot the messenger. oh other 2 teams are thought to be everton and sunderland. my thoughts are he would be a good squad player but i think he is to lazy to fit into our team

Hope so - I am sure Bentley is signed and sealed for July 1st. Fingers crossed Naughton, Defour and a few others are also close to signing. We should not even consider Huddlestone for £8.5m - a few more million and we would have Defour!!

In fact I will make it easy - Hleb, Defour and Bentley sorts our midfield. Naughton would make a start on the defence (would love Lescott and/or Hangelaand but seems unrealistic, even Richards is unrealistic unless Citeh get Lescott) so another defender is difficult to choose - what about Onouha??!! Then spend the rest of the summer debating whether Berg (Sweden U21), Michael Owen, Dean Ashton,Obafemi Martins or Frazier Campbell is the best choice for up front!!! Im my opinion I would take Martins but I would not mind at all which one we go for!!

Tuncay i would be happy with been very impressed with him everytime ive seen him play, think Bently and Owen are very likely as well, would also love Downing/Helb, think Huddlestone with these signings would be good 4 the squad as he is such a good passer of the ball, then we would need 2 sort the defence out wasnt keen on Campbell but 4 1 season maybe ok we do need a leader and sum experience but would also like 2 see with him Richards and Naughton.

Once the Sky 4 and Man City have had their pick (after Barca and Real Madrid have theirs) we are probably top of the pile given our position and having a bit more money to spend than Everton (only a reasoned assumption). I suspect we will have to wait a few more days before anything major happens for us. On another note deluded spurs fans seem convinced that they are going to sign Ashley Young. God forbid it ever happens but whats funny is that someone like Reo-Coker should actually be their priority, they already have lots of creative players but no steel or backbone, its been their problem for last 5/10 years.

Clayton Blackmore on SSN talking about Owen to Manure - Most of what he said was the usual cliched balls until asked who he thought would win the Premier League. His answer - "It could be any one from six". Nice to be considered Title contenders by an ex Manure player.

I've been quite voiciferous in calling for everyone to give MON time etc despite not being his biggest fan, but I have to say that I'm now getting seriously worried. Can't help but feel that MON is trying to be too clever for his own good and we'll end up with a smaller squad than last year. We should have had at least one or two signings lined completed by now even if they weren't the big name replacements for Greedy B***ard and The Great Dane

Anybody that isn't worried must have some seriously big blinkers on. Yes, MON is a ghood manager and has done a great job for us, HOWEVER, sheer common sense say that he should of bought any half decent CB & CM to replace the players we've lost on the 1st day of the transfer window and then gone to try to get his preffered picks. Wheater was always going to stay at Boro, but theres no reason for us not to of wrapped up the likes of Bentley (quoted as saying he was in talks with Villa), Owen, who would of been a real gem IMHO and a number of other targets.

Im not worried. I seem to get worried every transfer window but MON seems to pull through almost every time. Im nervous and anxious but theres no way I will doubt MON's ability. He's one of the best managers in the prem and for a reason as well. On a side note, Borowski for 5 million pounds is a bargain. He's versatile, has experience and a team player. I follow the bundesliga somewhat and I must say that borowski is one of my fav players (along with mertesacker, frings and klose). Maybe on the way over tim can convince der hammer to buy a one way ticket as well (one can only hope)

whennotif, Owen is going to Manure, who's to say that MON wasn't in for him?? "he should of bought any half decent CB & CM". Think thats our problem, we've got enough half decent players, we need top quality and Citeh, Chelsea and Real have 5hagged the market. Someone said on talksport yesterday that even The Man From Del Monte said NO to Manure so how are WE supposed to get players??? Also MON doesn't rotate atall so why would someone want to sign for him if they're gonna sit on the bench every week whilst his favourites are played for 90 mins until they have a good game even if it takes 2 years????

444 MON could of been in for him but, if manure were sniffin around him we would of probably read something about it. Meaning if he was in for him, took too bloody long and Fergie popped up and got the deal done. MON has bought some good players but seems he drags them out a bit, always leaving the opportunity to lose them to someone else. Close the deal MON!!

I'm not having this despondency...MON will make the signings we need. There's still plenty of players out there for us. I for one am glad Owen is not coming to us, he can work at Utd because they can afford to pay him his wages and rest him for half of the games, which is what he needs. Sturridge is a cocky player, who would be too big for his boots at Villa. Other than these two, who have we lost? Defour hasn't moved. Bentley hasn't moved. Borowski has apparently been green lighted. We don't need another striker really, we've already got too many to juggle. As far as centre backs go, we've got two good ones, and i'm sure we can find another one...they're not in short supply. Goalkeepers we're sorted for. A bit of strength in depth is what's needed, and there's no point in rushing for players when we can get better. People looking for a big money signing are in the wrong place. Defour would be the most expensive we could buy i think. Notice three of the teams who haven't bought yet are the one's who are looking for top quality players at reasonable prices: Villa, Spurs and Everton. On a personal wish list, i would love to see Der Hammer back? Can we start some kind of petition? Arsenal are sniffing apparently...that should be reason enough to pick him up.

If this Borowski deal is true then its a step in the right direction. I would also like Mertesacker (maebach) as he is quality. Also would love to see Der Hammer back in claret and blue! We should never have sold him, but he has improved as a player so it would be money well spent IMHO. Maybe we could loan one of sir chewalots forwards to keep Gabby on his toes. My dream and I do mean dream signings would be Sergio Aguerio who plays for Athletico Madrid or has someone signed him already? He wants CL though and we can't offer that. Oh well, anyone will feckin do at the moment!

I honestly thought we would be announcing Bentley, Defour and others this week - being early July etc. I dont see what we are waiting for - we have the funds, we need the players, we have the scouts, seriously!! Get a few in for pre-season training and get off to a flyer!!!!

Miguel Veloso’s days as a Sporting player appear to be coming to an end, with Aston Villa reported to be the latest of a host of Premier League clubs chasing the Portuguese international. The English club lost their England midfielder Gareth Barry to Manchester City recently, receiving 14m euros for the defensive midfielder. Veloso, who has made no secret of his desire to play in the Premiership, is thought to be the number one choice to replace Barry. Fellow Premier League side Bolton Wanderers have long expressed their interest in Veloso, even making concrete offers for the player both in the January transfer window and this summer, none of which however matched Sporting’s valuation. Manchester City and Arsenal have also been credited with an interest in the talented midfielder. WOULD BE AWESOME!! NEED TO BE QUICK!!

Think hangelaand would be a gr8 signing probably the best option as he has prem experience other than him we may need to look abroad for a new leader at the back. Veloso is very overated many portugese fans dont like him or rate him at all which is why he struggled to hold down a place in the starting 11 at sporting. Bentley would be a welcome addition as MON could sort him out, Think berg or Falcao would be risky but could be gr8.

It really humbles me watching Real buying the big guys, Man U too, Man Citeh trying but ultimately only getting Barry, regardless of stupid bids. We have money but cannot match them so I applaud MON for waiting or as is probably the case - trying and being told to eff off till Man City come in or don't.....City are going to make this window nearly impossible to compete in...we really need our scouts on top form for raw talent and MON on top persausive form too. It's frustrating but what do we do? Start taking risks on Ashton or Martins???? God knows! I would still like Krancjaar, G Barnes, Hangelaand, Bent and Bentley.

I find Man City's spending spree a huge problem for Villa. We've lost 2 players to them and its impossible for MON to find a bargain as every player we're linked with seems to have Mark Hughes interested. MON looks for bargains as a manager and he has only splashed the cash on 3 players who have paid off wonderfully (Milner, Young and Davies). I hope MON brings in Hangelaand, Borowski and a few squad players. Marcus Berg seems a bit of a gamble since 10 million pounds is a lot for unproven talent. He's only really impressed in the U21 euro championship. I dont think his numbers in the dutch league speak much since its at a different calibre than the prem.

Unless te Berg deal turns out to be a bidding war he will go for no more than £5m and would be worth the risk - as would Falcao, Defour and Veloso. But thats what we need to be doing. Although they are good players we know what to expect from Huddlestone, Jenas etc. and they will probably not be any better than we have got. This is the summer to take risks - after all what are our scouts paid for!!

WAKEY WAKEY MON!!! Everton bid £13m for Defour Everton are eager to secure the services of Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour, a former team-mate of Marouane Fellaini. David Moyes, the Everton manager, has not been put off by Liege's rejection of a £9m bid for Defour and has tabled a second bid for the player, believed to be around £13m. The midfield playmaker has indicated he is ready to leave Belgium but only when the price is right for his club. Liege are expected to drive a particularly hard bargain. WHY CANT WE BE LIKE OTHER CLUBS _ LERNER JUST GO AND SIGN HIM OVER HIS HEAD IF NEEDS BE!

me too, pre season starts tomorrow and if we dont have any new players soon any signings from overseas woul def not be up to fitness levels required fro prem football. Maybe we a re going to just be signing prem players from other clubs who will of already done their pre season with their own clubs but then they wont have as much time to settle in.

i've just said elsewhere on the site that MON could have sent a real signal of intent by replacing Laursen and Barry straight away. he just does not work that way though, much to the annoyance of the clubs fans. is this something he needs to change? perhaps..... the other thing concerns Randy Lerners' money. i wonder how much he has lost in Americas economic meltdown? ...just a thought...

signing players over the managers head is ridiculous deano !! look at keegan @ newcastle and what happened to them ! 2 top 6 finishes with the smallest squad and without the financial muscle of chelsea, liverpool man city, utd etc . mon wants success and knows what he is doing i think we need to be patient im sure he knows whats needed .I agree its frustrating as each day passes without a signing but our club is in good hands. looking forward to next season- a few players and it could be massive !!

The current poll suggests where do we need to strengthen? May I suggest everywhere to push on but especially strengthen in our purchasing of players technique! For me we need a n other keeper as Brad F has only one more season in him, an experienced centre half, utility full back who can switch but definately a leftie, creative centre mid, a holding ball winner and a fox in the box. Don't really mind who we get for these as we have been linked to most out there so long as we sign quality and that will cost us plenty! I just hope MON will grow some nuggetts and be brave and go for it. Must say that I hope we do get Delph and Bentley though.

I hope we dont lose out to Everton to Naughton. I have a feeling that MON might not rate Naughton highly. MON's got an eye for young talent and he usually gets his targets. I think we signed a 19 year old a month ago right? MON is very hush with his dealings (I mean who saw that Zaki move?) so maybe MON is in there right now. But on the bright side we seem to be the frontrunners for Delph and Veloso.

I am starting to worry about Young links to Man Utd or Barcelona. Lets face it we may love Villa but Young is a pro with no real loyalty to AVFC. What makes it more worrying i that we have lined up a replacement in Downing. I will say only this - we should not sell, but IF the player asks for a move we should accept no less than £30m and we should ask for a few players in exchange to build it up - realistic ones - Nani, Gibson, Brown, Park.

Cant see manure buying Young. The have already bought 2 wingers. and they also have Nani. Why would they need Young. And Barcelona can buy anyone they pretty much want so why Young? Id be more concerned with Chelsea bidding. Also if we do sign downing (Papers on NW suggest we have tabled a bid but who knows?) we would have to wait for him for at least october to become match fit. Selling Young would just defy all logic to where we want to go!

TO LOSE 5 OF OUR MOST SOLID PLAYES IN 3 YEARS WOULD BE UNNACCEPTABLE AND IF IT WAS TRUE I WOULD EXPECT TO BE SPENDING A HELL OF A LOT OF MONEY TO APPEASE THE MOST PESSIMISTIC OF VILLA FANS. .....DONT SELL CAREW OR YOUNG....... ID ONLY EXCEPT YOUNGS FOR £45M AND CAREW FOR £15M YOU MAY NOT AGREE THESE PRICES BUT I THINK THESE ARE THE FIGURES WE WOULD HAVE TO PAY TO REPLACE CAREW N YOUNG WITH BETTER PLAYERS N THAT AINT GONNA HAPPEN WHILE WERE 6

DOWNING WOULD BE BOUGHT IN AS COVER FOR YOUNG, AS WE ARE BUILDING A SQUAD, HENSE WONT BE SELLING PLAYERS, AT LEAST THATS THE IMPRESSION GIVEN BY THE CLUB

yes i do have to agree with the post on the yorke issue fear, id hate young to leave, but they majority vote saying theyd sell for £15m is a joke, in todays hyped transfer prices hes got to be worth at leat £25-30M, and seriously i have not that many worries, ash would be made to see out some of that 3 year extension he signed, and carew wellllll, but after the initial shock of reading two of our most influencial players are on the move, i do realise that everyone is replacable, and if martin can bring a carew and a young in once, he can do it again, fans support the club and players support themselves, occosionaly once in a blue moon does any set of fans have a relationship like carews and the villa fans, in mon i trust ..doctorwho..

If Downing comes in he will be left wing and I can see Ashley playing up front with Carew as Gabby is still to set the world alight, although he is full of promise I think this is his defining season. And Ashley could also play on the right which would allow Milner to have a more central role, I think Downing would be a great signing would like to see Bent and Gary Cahill in too.

kinda worried now. The only rumours i can believe surround villa are of players leaving! I am very nervous now. We desperately need to make a couple decent signings to keap our top players, like Carew n Young. The players that are the suposed "top 4" quality need to stay if we wana push again
