Couple of decent links today, both make sense and both have been mentioned before. Someone asked me the other day, what do you think will happen first, Villa sign a top player or the sun comes out... touch and go I'd say!
Anyway, according to the Daily Mail today, Stuttgart have offered £9million for Turkish striker/attacking midfielder Tuncay. Why is only his one name used? I digress. The 27-year-old, who has been linked numerous times to Villa, is apparently also still being chased by Villa as well as Everton and Tottenham.
Is he worth £9million? He always looked ok to me but can't say I paid that much attention. He moved on a free from Fenerbahce. Looks like he can play up front, as a support striker or on either wing according to the Boro page on him. Click Here
Tuncay Sanli (see, he does have another name!) scored 8 goals in 27 games for Boro.
The Daily Mail say that we have already bid £6million and Everton and Spurs both wanted to pay around £5million. Apparently Tuncay wants to stay in the Premiership.
According to The Sun Hull and Stoke are part of the tug of war for England striker Darren Bent.
Also in the running are Sunderland, some reports suggest he has already had talks with them and that he had his trip with the Spurs squad cancelled at the last minute so he could do so. A report yesterday said the striker would prefer a move to Villa.
The Sun today say that Stoke and Hull are also interested and will match Sunderland's bid, I think it was claimed yesterday they'd bid £15million.
The paper further claims the 25-year-old will have a medical at Sunderland today.
The Sun doesn't mention us today, some other internet gossip sites are still linking us and lets face it, the press are determined that we sign at least one Spurs player this summer!, so if Villa are going to move, they'll have to move quickly....!
Vital Spurs article: Villa make late bid to snatch Bent.
Bent has 25 goals in 43 games for Spurs. Surely that scoring rate would come in very handy for Villa? He was a marmite player for the Spuds but he is young, on the fringes of the England set up and looks to be exactly MON's sort of player? Full stats on Spurs official site: Click Here
Or maybe the wild rumours that we are going to bid for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will come true!
And that appears to be that for the day... well so far anyway!
According to The Times Villa are after Trelleborgs central defender Rasmus Bengtsson. Apparently the 23-year-old Sweden U21's contract ends in October meaning he can move for £400 000. According to his wiki page, he has played 70 times for Trelleborgs FF scoring 11 goals!
