Just mopping up the days news which basically all about James Milner.
I'd be shocked after listening to his press conference as broadcast on SSN if he didn't go this summer sadly.
Thing is, Villa have to get every penny they can for him, we've already showed we won't be bullied (over Gareth Barry ) but if someone is willing to pay 'silly money' then every player has a price.
£30m for him? + Sale of fringe players + some tv money and cup run money. Could be a big pot to re-build?
'Do I expect to be at Villa next season? I don't know. I've worked as hard as I can and concentrated on club football while the season has been on. Now it has finished, I'm focusing on England - and that's the only thing I am focusing on.'
Adding, 'The speculation about my own future is not distracting. There are always going to be rumours about every player in every club when the transfer window opens. To be linked with any clubs is flattering but I'm just concentrating on England at this time. The season finished at Villa a week and a bit ago and we all said we would discuss my future after the World Cup.'
Would have hoped for a 'I hope so' at the end of the 'do I expect to be at Villa next season?' rather than a 'I don't know'.
Seems he's off to me. I could be wrong!
