Villa's Christmas Eve Transfer Talk

Villa's Christmas Eve Transfer Talk

A report in The Sun by Steve Brenner today claims that Villa are after Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones and will beat Liverpool to the £12million punch for the player.

The report suggests that Sunderland will sell him as he's been overshadowed this season by Darren Bent.

The Sun claim that Villa, Everton and Liverpool have all been notified of the 24-year-olds availability. He has six goals so far this season (Bent 9)

No quotes or any real substance but hey, we all like a bit of transfer gossip don't we?!

The Daily Star claim that Stoke boss Tony Pulis is also after the Trinidad and Tobago international.

Can't see much else in truth.

A few interesting links to Spurs (who have to sell before they can buy maybe opening the door for the latest Robbie Keane or Jermaine Jenas to Villa links which won't actually happen!) with Man City striker Craig Bellamy, Ruud van Nistelrooy, West Ham defender (who we were linked with strongly in the summer but think we've enough central defenders now?!) Mathew Upson and Liverpool winger, again a player we have been linked with, Ryan Babel.

Must admit I think Bellamy is a bit of a '......' insert your own word, but he is also a top class striker when fit (that is the main problem, WHEN fit) and certainly has the snarl and attitude that maybe we sometimes lack?

The Guardian had a brief link for the rumour that Liverpool will sack Rafa Benitez and replace him with Martin O'Neill. Pretty long thread in our forum as to why MON would want to move, especially to a cash strapped club with the owners seemingly at war! Click Here for the thread. (Forum contains adult language!)

That is about it for gossip, only other snippet is by James Nursey of the Mirror quoting Curtis Davies who is still hoping to make the World Cup but also realises he has his work cut out to break back into the Villa team: “The dream would be to go to the World Cup but, if I am totally honest, my New Year’s Resolution is to get back into the Villa side. I just want to get a good few games under my belt before the end of the season. The current England manager picks on form and doesn’t pick on past form and history.' Full article: Click Here
