Monday's Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

Monday's Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

Not a great deal going on today gossip wise.

The Daily Mail repeat the weekend reports that Villa are set to talk terms with England and Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing.

Also in the Daily Mail, they carry another report yet again linking defender Zat Knight with a move to Wolves or Bolton. The brief snippet says the player is set to have talks with Bolton boss Gary Megson and that Wolves will try to match the offer... which the press are saying is around £3million for the 29-year-old.

Can we really see another exit being allowed?

West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola has hinted to Sky Sports News that he, amongst others, could well be interested in Barcelona and former Chelsea and Bolton striker Eidur Gudjohnsen who has been linked to Villa several times. Zola said: 'Eidur is certainly a very good player. I am sure West Ham are not the only team who are looking for a good player like him.'

The Birmingham Mail repeats the link to Spurs striker Darren Bent after Sunderland's interest in the player has apparently diminished. The Metro also says we'll challenge Sunderland and Blackburn for the player BUT say that Spurs would like John Carew as part of any deal, a sticking point for Villa who don't want to sell the Norwegian international.

According to The Times Leeds have set a price of £8million for 19-year-old midfielder Fabian Delph. It has been claimed in several papers over the last few days that Villa have had a £6million bid turned down. Spurs and Fulham are also linked.

Sky Sports are repeating the link to 23-year-old Portugal international and Sporting Lisbon midfielder Miguel Veloso who was apparently watched by Villa scouts in Lisbon's friendly v Nottingham Forest. Bolton are also said to be interested.

The Boro Evening Gazette again claim Villa will step up their interest in Middlesbrough playmaker Tuncay as part of Villa's summer 'spending spree'.

Same old, same old. Downing will not be fit until October at the earliest and he wont be match fit either. Why the hell would MON even consider letting Young go to Spurs if this is the case? Infact why would he even consider letting him go anywhere for that matter?
