Gardner Fee Agreed - Official

Gardner Fee Agreed - Official

There is now confirmation on the official site that a fee has been agreed for Craig Gardner.

Whilst the official site gives no indication of the fee, it does state that the deal is subject to add ons aswell.

He will most likely move early next week, once a medical has been passed and personal terms are agreed.

I can think of better places for him to end up other than Blues, but nonetheless I wish him well.

We all have our own thoughts about our midfield, but I desperately fail to see why he didn't get a run in the team in his favoured position and at points he certainly cannot have done any worse that we've put up with at points.

Good luck Craig, but show your true colours when we see you next, an own goal or two would be perfect.

It's a real shame. The lad has shown a great attitude, has bags of energy and has a fearsome shot on him. He's a way better footballer than NRC and he's been better than anything we've seen from Sidwell in a Villa shirt.

He never got a chance because he is too slow for CM, not enough skill for RM and not defensive enough for RB. He will be a utillity player for them. Good luck craig. Only way is down now

To be fair its probably the best place for him to go,they are playing very well and he will slot in there perfectly.Im not from the West Midlands but its good to see how strong the area has become at football again.

What's all this "lifelong Blues fan" and "Joins his boyhood heroes at Birmingham" rubbish I've been reading on various sites??? Craig Gardner, Blues Fan? I always thought he was a lifelong Villa supporter like his brother?
