Are you sitting comfortably? Good, you won't be by the end of this I fear!
The Daily Mail claim James Milner's move to Manchester City is one step closer after James said he didn't know if he'd still be a Villa player come the new season (see: www.astonvilla.vitalfootball.co.uk )
The Sun say that Chelsea have joined the chase for James Milner They claim that Man City have tabled a £30million bid after a '£25m' bid was rejected (other papers are saying it was a £20m bid that was turned down). They quote a Chelsea insider as saying: 'Losing out to City for Robinho was embarrassing at the time, even if it did turn out to be a lucky escape. But we are determined to get our man this time and we are very confident it will happen.'
The Guardian say that City will bid £30million and that they would also like to buy Ashley Young.
And an exit that would rock Villa fans to the core, The Daily Mail claim that Stoke might bid for Villa and England striker Emile Heskey. They say a fee of just over £2million would be enough to secure his services. Make it £3million, which would be a million for each goal he scored last season and we have a deal!
A gossip site has linked us with a £15million bid for West Ham striker Carlton Cole. Not the first time we've been linked with the former Chelsea man but there seems very little substance to this particular article.
The Sun say that Villa might move for a season long loan for Eidur Gudjohnsen. It was expected that Spurs would go for him on a permanent deal having loaned him last season but apparently no moves have been made as yet.
The Daily Star claims that Spurs want Ashley Young and would be willing to use Robbie Keane or Jermaine Jenas as part of the deal. Wasn't that the same link as last summer?! The report says Spurs will bid £16m + one of those players as part of the deal.
Villa were linked with Spurs winger David Bentley earlier this week.
Hmmm, I guess looking on the positive side, if Martin O'Neill can sell some of the unwanted fringe players and does get £30million for Milner, maybe £25million for Ashley Young, then there would be a real war chest for summer spending on top of TV / Sky / Cup run money.
