I reckon the man who makes up these rumours must be on holiday as they are very thin on the ground at the moment!
According to FC Groningen striker Markus Berg reports that Aston Villa, Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers are all interested in his services is news to him! He said on Sportweek:
'My agent also hasn't heard a thing. I would imagine the clubs, if they really were negotiating a deal, would contact me. I am fully focused on the European championships. We will see what happens when it ends.' You can check the Sweden U21 striker yourself tomorrow as he should feature in the England v Sweden U21 semi final game: ( Villa Trio Hope To Face Sweden For England U21s )
The Northern Echo, a regular read in the Fear household, claim that Sunderland will bid for Spurs midfielder Tom Huddlestone along with Aston Villa and Fulham who also want the 22-year-olds services. Ok, nothing new there, we've heard that one before but wait for this.... they say he is rated at £8million. WOW... HOW MUCH???? Surely not! The report says the player wants regular football and although he is under contract until 2013 and is still wanted by Appy Arry, the midfielder might choose to move on if he can't get some guarantees of first team football.
A report in the Times says Spurs are after Real Madrid fullback Royston Drenthe who we've also been linked with. They claim that we made a bid for the Dutch left-back last week which was rejected. Hmmmm.

Right, come on Villa, the rumours are drying up, so we'll need some actual signings now! :o)
(I reckon early July will be when deals are announced by the way, June is never very productive!)
