Carew To Italy? Villa Transfer Talk Round Up

Carew To Italy?  Villa Transfer Talk Round Up

PLEASE vote for me (and spread the word to mates etc!) Click Here

Roll up, roll up, it is gossip time!

The Mirror have an exclusive by James Nursey claiming that John Carew could be off to Italy. The last link I saw was for a move to Fulham but apparently the 30-year-old, who is in the last year of his contract come next season, is wanted by both Fiorentina and Sampdoria. Turkish giants Fenerbahce are also linked.

The Mirror link us once more to Spurs striker Robbie Keane and also Fulham hitman Bobby Zamora.

The Sun have a strange headline. They say Martin O'Neill is Adam Ant. What? That music's lost it's taste, why don't you try another flavour? Oh hang on, no, it says his adamant. Not sure what about though. Anyway, they are linking us with a £2million move for 18-year-old Cardiff City right-back Adam Matthews. Manchester United and Arsenal are also said to be tracking the youngster.

The Sun say that Luke Young .... now there is a good right-back!.... will join West Ham for £4million.

The Sun also have a quote from Richard Dunne saying that he'd welcome Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland at Villa.

Another report in The Sun has Curtis Davies moving to Liverpool for £5million. I must admit, I think there is no chance of Villa selling the player for half what they paid for him, he is only 25 and has plenty left to offer.

The Daily Mail
also have an exit for Curtis, this time for £7million (that is getting better?!) to Tottenham. Would be a shame to see him go though, we need cover and he could fight his way back into regular first team action couldn't he?

Finally The Daily Mail have Villa defender Richard Dunne warning James Milner that a move to Manchester City could lead to a spell on the bench and no guarantee of first team football.

The report says Man City are 'poised' to up the offer and Dunne says now that City are a big club financially, these sums of money mean little to them 'It`s just another player really, so it`s whether you are going to get enough game time.' He does however admit there are clubs out there who could offer Milner Champions League football.

Dunne also points out that if quality like Stephen Ireland can't get regular football, the same could happen to him.

Ireland would be a good replacement for Sidwell but not Milner. Two different types of player. As for Parker - well he's a decent player - but yet again not as good as Milner. Jenas is tosh, Keane maybe worth a shout, as for Davies leaving - that would be a shame - perhaps MON should try rotating again.....

Keane was on bbc this morn saying he staying at spurs. Not certain about him, age/fee. Also ex blues lady in interview warning us of parker

@leelindsay, MON rotating AGAIN? Did I miss something?
26/05/2010 12:29:00
Carew will be missed by fans but not really a miss on the pitch in my opinion he only plays well for one half, our best striker though at the moment. I am worried about next season if milner does leave cant think of anyone to replace him, ireland wont have the same work rate milner does and city fans say he doesnt work well in a 442, parker would be a good shout but only to replace petrov who i think needs replacing. We need something different on the wings and upfront, benayoun and falcao for me but would they come to us, i know falcao wants to come to england so its possible.
