Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

Little bit of press gossip surrounding Aston Villa today, ok nothing earth shattering but we do our best to keep you up to date. I guess the transfer talk will start to grow now leading up to January where pretty much nothing will happen despite the press talk for all clubs!

Anyway, The Mirror say that Martin O'Neill has buried the hatchet with Nigel Hokey-Cokey, quite where the hatchet has been buried it doesn't say. The Hokey Cokey, whose contract runs out at the end of next season will no doubt move on at some point rather than sign a new deal, so I'd say next summer at the latest? However, at present all is hunky dory and he is back in contention to be picked according to this report.

Meanwhile - and brace yourselves for at least one of these a week until January, the Sun, in a report by Shaun Custis and Martin Blackburn, say that Blackburn Rovers are watching the Emile Heskey situation with interest and might move for the England striker (lol, always makes me smile that, a striker who doesn't score... meow). Wonder if they will text the offer?!?!? (in case you don't get that 'joke' Villa Player Revealed To Be England 'Text Pest'!)

And the ever helpful Daily Star have a report by David Woods lining us up a replacement for the not yet departed Emile! They say that if he leaves we'll be going for Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd who we have been linked with before.

Starsport says that Wigan are at the head of the queue for Emile. MON said to the paper yesterday: 'We will have a look at all situations in the January window but, again, I still think that’s very far away for us. Just recently Emile has not started for us and I’d like to think that it’s other players keeping him out of the team rather than anything else.'

I never thought I'd see anyone, let alone a villa fan request Carlton Cole back as a player... He may have improved but his time here (38 games - only 2 goals?) was hardly memorable.

We don't need to sign anymore players the same standard as what we have already got. We already have a vast array of youth coming through. What we need is wonderkids (Steven Defour) or real quality experiened players in their prime. In Jan I would be more than happy to sign 1 player who can go straight in the 1st team and make a difference... Defour

Don't know how true this is, but heard a rumour that Roman Pavlyuchenko is on the cards in Jan?? I'm not sure about him myself :OS
