The Daily Mail are repeating the link for Aston Villa to grab Real Madrid's Dutch midfielder/play maker Wesley Sneijder. The reports the other day said we were going to fight it out with Liverpool, the Mail claim we'll try to 'snatch' him from under the noses of Inter Milan.
The link to Sylvain Distin is also repeated in the Mail and the Independent (who also say we are still interested in 86-year-old former Arsenal and Spurs defender Sol Campbell)
The Daily Mirror say that Spurs are set to offer £10million for Chelsea and England midfielder Joe Cole who was linked to Villa last January.
The Sun say that Spurs striker Darren Bent will finally join Sunderland today for around £12million. We've been linked but as I've said before, it appears the link wasn't a serious one. Then again, things in football sure do change quickly!
And that, for today, well so far anyway, is that.
Manager Tim Sherwood has spoken of his disappointment - and shouldered the blame - for today's one nil loss to Stoke City.
