Sunday's Aston Villa Transfer Talk!!!

Sunday's Aston Villa Transfer Talk!!!

Ok, so we've covered the Jermaine Jenas nonsense (?) More Jenas Links Despite 'Not For Sale' Warning what else is there? Nothing great I'm afraid?!

Strong whispers that Arsenal defender Kolo Toure could be on his way to Aston Villa are being blown out the water because Manchester City have apparently agreed personal terms and are paying £15m for him. So there you go!

The News Of The World say that West Ham have put a £15million price tag on Matthew Upson. The England and former Arsenal defender is wanted by Spurs and has also been linked several times to Villa. Not sure we need any centre-backs though do we, we've got two?!?!?!? :o)

Looks like Spurs are starting to make moves now, they have had a £10million bid for Portsmouth and former Liverpool and Villa ... and Southampton...(!) striker Peter Crouch who could complete his move on Monday according to The Sunday Mirrror. Does that then free up Darren Bent and are Villa interested?! The News Of The World claim that Appy Arry is on the verge of signing Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. Not seen ANY links to strikers for Villa for weeks and weeks. Are we not in the market for one at least? Heskey and Carew are big lads who pick up lots of injuries and Gabby is still young and developing and isn't - as yet at least, some say never will be - a 20 a season striker.

Ah, found a link to Darren Bent outwards, not to Villa though. The News of the World (haven't they been busy today!) say Sunderland will bid £15million for the 25-year-old England striker.

The Sunday Times claim that Spurs will also land 19-year-old Leeds United midfielder Fabien Delph who again has been strongly linked to Villa with some reports going as far as saying we've had bids turned down.

The News of the World say that Spurs right-back Alan Hutton is on his way out with Everton linked. Villa have been linked several times to the former Rangers man.

31-year-old Pompey defender Sylvain Distin is still being linked but Paul Hart says Portsmouth want to keep him. 'I think we are in talks with him and he is a great player, a great lad, a great leader so we don't want him to go anywhere,' The Star claim we've got the player and will unveil him this week after Distin told Pompey he would not be signing a new deal.

Then again the same article says we are going to push for Jermaine Jenas and claim Villa have been 'rocked' by the news that Stewart Downing might not be fit until Christmas. NO WE HAVE NOT BEEN ROCKED... everyone knew he might not be fit until December or even January. (Exclusive interview with MON: Click Here )

All has gone very quiet on the David Bentley links haven't they?!

I think there must be players coming in this week, they can't have let Zat Knight leave for Bolton Wanderers without at least one defender set to sign.

We havn`t replaced the liar yet, Martin Laursen and now Zat Knight. Why we have to sell before we replace is a big mystery, unless there is a set budget. I just hope we don`t off load 6 players a bring in 3, unless they are top EPL players.

i would hope for at least 5 more players; two center backs, two creative central midfielders and a striker. but - with a mere three weeks left til the wigan game (and only one week with MON's "two-week settling period" included), i really cannot see that happening. sad, sad, frustrating times to be a villa! haha - i say "more" players.. oh no :(

i'd certainly settle for - distin, upson, delph, defour and tuncay arriving this coming month. in that case, the hare could even go.
