How strange the transfer window gossip is, it isn't far off the window opening and yet there seems very little going around about Villa. Now fair enough Martin O'Neill has said he doesn't expect too much movement but surely the papers should at least have linked us yet again to Spurs winger David Bentley and repeated a link or two to swaps between Nigel Hokey-Cokey and Jermaine Jenas. Surely they've not given up?!
Talking about Jermaine's, (just look at that, totally seamless link!!!!!) The Sun today are claiming that Villa are after the Real Zaragoza player. Apparently they are very determined to get rid of him and he will be returning to the Premiership. But to the Villa? Nope, the club dismissed reports a month back saying we weren't after him, I'd happily take that over this report.
Amazing quotes from the director there though! Erard Poschner said: 'We are disappointed with Pennant. This is based on the commitment of the players. With spirit like this it is better to 'sack' some players and seek reinforcements in the winter market. We want players who guarantee their work and effort.'
The Mirror meanwhile are talking about under pressure Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez. The debt ridden club are apparently going to allow Tom Jones mini me to buy two players with our very own Emile Heskey on the list. He was linked to them last summer as well if memory serves me right, or at the very least earlier this season.
The report says Heskey, who scored 60 goals for Liverpool in his four years there, is seen as the perfect foil for Fernado Torres
We going to sell an England international striker who is just (injury aside) hitting a bit of form in January when there will be no likely replacements available? Unless Robbie Keane or Carlton Cole are targets, it seems very doubtful doesn't it? What if he wanted to go? Well, we have shown before that we don't suffer fools gladly at Villa but also don't get held to ransom, just look at the Gareth Barry saga.
Hey, I've a great idea, I'll ask in a poll!!!!!!!! Would you sell Heskey?
