Boro Striker Fee Agreed? + Other Transfer Talk

Boro Striker Fee Agreed? + Other Transfer Talk

The Boro Official Site has manager Gareth Southgate quoted as accepting that some players will have to leave before the end of the transfer window but he'd like to hold on to Robert Huth who is linked with a move to Villa but realises if the price is right, he might have to go.

Strange that he says Huth and not David Wheater, also linked to Villa following MON's visit to the Riverside last Friday night. Maybe they have realised they can't hold onto the U21 England defender? He is another that reports claim Martin O'Neill was running the rule over in Boro's opening game draw against Sheffield United.

MON had hoped to sneak in to have a look without being noticed, only to be picked up by the Sky cameras!! MON said 'I was hoping that I could go to the game and not be spotted but I was because there were not too many managers there. I just went to have a look.'

On Huth, who was captain v the Blades, Southgate said the player has the right 'physical attributes' for the Championship and also has 'composure'.

Asked by the press if Huth, who was linked to Villa before his move from Chelsea to Boro, was available he said: 'I would rather not sell him but I know there are certain things we have to do as a football club. But Robert's approach is first class. Of course, it would be fantastic if he could go to the World Cup with Germany and a move might help him to do that, but he has been very realistic about it and has told me that he understands that for him to leave a club has to offer the type of money Middlesbrough want.'

Southgate has already said he is amazed that Tuncay hasn't been snapped up. The player, who missed Boro's opening game with tonsillitis, is being linked with Villa again.

The Daily Mail claim Villa and Boro have agreed a £7million fee for the striker and say that we'll beat competition from Spurs.

As reported on Vital Boro, the Turkish captain was linked with Stuttgart last week but reports said he preferred if possible to move to a Premiership team.

The Mail also says that Villa are hoping to beat Sunderland and Manchester City to the signature of Portsmouth defender Sylvain Distin.

The Sportsmail claim that Villa haven't given up on the pursuit of Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas.

Meanwhile, never one to be shy of talking about another clubs player, Appy Arry says he would like Ashley Young but knows that Villa won't release him. 'Everybody would like to have him but I don't think there is a chance we would get him. He's a fantastic player and Aston Villa do not want to sell him, I don't think he's available.'

This follows the latest mad reports that Spurs were set to bid £21m. TOTAL PANTS - Ashley Young Is Going Nowhere!!

Tuncay would make sense I'd think? Not sure which I'd prefer between Wheater, Huth or Distin?

Tuncay great but we would need 2 out of 3 centre backs, i would like Distin 4 sure but cant decide between the other 2.

Think it would have to be Distin, we lack a ball playing defender with Premiership experience, Wheater and Huth lack both of these!

If my maths is right, and it rarely is - we may actually be able to field a first 11 and some subs now with all the players we're supposed to be signing! Distin, Dunne, Tuncay, Wheater, Wesley Snipes..... Would like top see all of them join and give us a real chance to actually compete on multiple fronts. UTV.

Distin for me. And I think Tuncay would really add an extra dimension to Villa's play. Does anyone else agree that Barry's departure can now be seen as a blessing ? I'm looking forward to a new vibrant and creative midfield this season - not the rather one-dimensional midfield that revolved around Bazza.
