Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

There have been some rumours and reports in the press recently that I've not really bothered to touch as I could see it was total pants (as opposed to the usual average pants!!)

The last one was a link to former Blue nose and Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant who the report suggested wasn't happy at Real Zaragoza.

Villa have now denied this link.

This one is a bit of an obvious one, Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is being linked with a move for his former Blues/Wigan player Emile Heskey in the January transfer window according to The Daily Express. A straight swap for Darren Bent maybe! lol Not sure about this one, if he still isn't getting regularly into the Villa side though, he may well want to move but in the last few games he has started to show form and with the cold weather coming John Carew will no doubt disappear so Heskey should get his chance at Villa?

There was a strange one yesterday in Nemzeti Sport, a regular read in the Fear household, cough, with Marton Fulop of Sunderland and Hungary talking about links to Villa. First I've heard of it I must admit, he said he doesn't like to comment on rumours before adding (!) 'But if it is true, this would not be the first time my name has been linked with Aston Villa and Martin O'Neill. Aston Villa have two good goalkeepers at the moment, and I have a contract at Sunderland until 2012, but if Martin O'Neill says he wants me then I will take it very seriously.'


Wonder if it will take long for us to be linked to Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos again! A report today says he is ready to leave the Gunners and join Atletico Madrid in January. He was linked to us several times last summer.

Villa will get linked with any Englishman, actually any British player. From Joe Cole to Jenas, to Boythroyd & Andy King to unfortunately Jermaine Pennant. I'm expecting a link to Vassell anyday soon. I've noticed with MO'N, he does deny wrong reports almost immediately (the Upson failed bit), yet is silent when 'accurate' reports come forward (Dunne & Bentley in the summer.) So in the future I'll take his silence as a yes, kind of like my family do with me. Wouldn't surprise me if Everton, Spurs & Sunderland are the next teams linked with Pennant, as all 4 teams will get linked with the same players from now until the summer.
