Press Seem Determined A Villa Star Leaves!
The Daily Mirror seem determined that one of our stars at the very least leaves Villa Park this summer!
The last link was James Milner to Manchester City or Manchester United. Now they say that Manchester City will be targeting winger Ashley Young this summer.
I guess this is a compliment to the club and to Martin O'Neill's purchases that the young stars are being linked with other clubs.
More interesting are MON's comments, on the James Milner rumours, reported in several papers where the Villa boss says:
'It is irksome at this stage of the season. It doesn`t do anyone any favours particularly because the player has had a fantastic time and is enjoying his football immensely here. He has had a really brilliant time, particularly since moving into the middle of midfield and I am delighted for him.' Adding 'James is still under contract with us and it`s a case of dampening fires that weren`t there in the first place. We want the best players to stay here at Aston Villa so we can keep the momentum going.'
So reading between the lines.... no, only joking!
So far rumour wise, have I missed any?!
