Well my word, we are actually being linked with some players inwards today!
The Sunday Mirror say that Tottenham striker Robbie Keane will join Villa for £15million. Must admit, I've said on the forum a few times, I think this one may well be a shoe in. The 29-year-old I believe would have come in January but Spurs (rightly) wouldn't loan him to a close rival so he went and scored 16 goals in 19 games for Celtic instead.
An exclusive by Simon Mullock in The Mirror says that Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland has expressed his wish to leave and the 23-year-old will follow through with a written transfer request. They also repeat the link that City might offer him as a £12million 'makeweight' if there were to attract James Milner to Eastlands. They have a 'source' saying the player feels he needs to move to get his career back on track after missing a lot of the action last season.
The Mirror claim that Villa are willing to offer James Milner a £70 000 a week contract to keep him.
The News Of The World claim that Villa are after Valencia players Nikola Zigic and Miguel.
Apparently a bid of around £9.5million is expected as Valencia need money to clear debts.
We were linked with Miguel last summer and January. Wiki: Click Here
29-year-old Zigic is a giant (6ft 7in) Serbian striker who I think we have also been linked with before. Wiki: Click Here
The News Of The World say that James Milner doesn't want to move to Manchester United or Manchester City and has set his heart on a move to Liverpool instead. ?????
In an exclusive by Dan King and Cliff Hayes, the report claims that Martin O'Neill wants a £40million price tag put on the 24-year-olds head. On the move the paper have a source quoted saying as he was born in Leeds a move to Man Utd wouldn't appeal but a move to Liverpool would.
Ok, that might be the case, but if Liverpool don't bid (they don't have £30-£40m unless they sell Torres or Gerrard) then that is irrelevant! Oh hang on, the report is saying if Rafa leaves then O'Neill might become the Liverpool boss and then he'd want to take Milner.
Few too many assumptions there for me!
A Villa source say that MON is determined, if the player has to leave, to get top dollar, adding 'But if his heart is set on leaving, then Villa must get the absolute top price for him.'
Meanwhile The News Of The World say Sunderland want Man City defender Nedum Onuoha and are ahead of Villa and Newcastle in the race for the 23-year-old who might be available for around £3million. Errr, bovvered?!?!

Aston Villa have six players away with their countries in the October international window.
Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
Manager Tim Sherwood has given his normal Monday briefing, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan has also given his thoughts as frustration reigns.
