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.
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.
