Good grief, we have a few snippets of transfer gossip today!
According to the Sunday people Villa are interested in Sunderland keeper Marton Fulop who is seen as a potential replacement for 38-year-old Brad Friedel who pulled off a couple of fantastic saves yesterday by the way!
The Sunday Sun claim that Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate is after Villa midfielder, or as they call him 'misfit' Nigel Hokey-Cokey on a loan deal.
He has been linked to Boro before, not convinced we should be loaning out any player this season, despite the 'fight' they need to be men and get over it, get him back in the team and keep our squad numbers at a reasonable level.
Then again, if they can't get over a little spat, it doesn't speak well of either of them and in that case, the player should be shipped out as the boss is going nowhere and you can't have his authority questioned.
All paper talk really though, so hey ho!
Meanwhile, in a bit of slightly related but not really news (I do speak junk at times don't I?!) the Sunday People claim that Spurs want Bolton (and obviously former Villa... wish the 'former' bit wasn't there) defender Gary Cahill. The report claims he'd cost the White Hart Lane outfit a massive £20million.
Aston Villa have six players away with their countries in the October international window.
Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
Manager Tim Sherwood has given his normal Monday briefing, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan has also given his thoughts as frustration reigns.
