Friday's Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk
Not a great deal going on press wise to be honest.
The Daily Express claim that Villa have put in a £5million bid in for Manchester City defender Richard Dunne. Bit of a yawn really.
The Daily Mirror claim that Sunderland will bid for Villa target (?) Sylvain Distin from Portsmouth along with (not that this interests us at all) David James and Lucas Neil.
Reports today suggest that reported Villa target (lets face it, he can't be otherwise we'd have bought him by now as he is clearly for sale) Middlesbrough striker Tuncay Sanli may be off to Fenerbahce on loan. Another report claims that both Wolves and Everton are also interested in him and that he might be available for as little as £6m.
Not sure what this is all about?!? Is there a Johan Carew or is Johan Portuguese for John?

The fans are euphoric and anxious to see the service of Greater JohanCarew Club World
(Don't panic, it is a spoof sent by a naughty Vital PL ed to me this morning!)
