Friday's Villa Transfer Talk

Friday's Villa Transfer Talk

So far only one player in and with the new season in two weeks time I think it is fair to assume that reinforcements will arrive in the next week?

I personally see the Peace Cup as a distraction, and would happily see us crash out to Porto in the Semi-final if it means we can make a signing or two.

One link that seems to pop up every few days is Jermaine Jenas. And today according to The Mirror, Martin O'Neill is going to offer £7 Million for the Spurs Midfielder, they claim O'Neill will step up the chase due to Petrov's injury serving as a reminder of how fragile the squad is. If he needed Petrov's injury to remind him then that makes me even more worried than I already was!!!

Several papers are saying that Ashley Young wants to stay at Villa and earn a place in Fabio Capello's World Cup squad in South Africa. Which we kind of knew anyway, good to see the rest of the footballing world is catching up.

Well thats it my fellow Villans, sad but true, ah well game against Porto tonight so an opportunity for Martin O'Neill to do a bit of scouting? Probably not.

Think Jenas is the most realistic replacement for Barry, bit more of an all-rounder than Sidwell, who to me is more attack minded.

Surely if we win the Peace Cup, potential players would be more inclined to join us???
