Villa Tried To Sign Zigic?


A report in the Birmingham Mail today backs up a rumour I heard yesterday!

The Blues reporter Colin Tattum says that Villa tried to grab Nikola Zigic from under the (blue) noses of Birmingham City.

The Serbian, who has been linked several times to Villa, was apparently wanted by Martin O'Neill and Zigic's agent claims Villa 'begged' to wait until MON was available to talk to the player. O'Neill is currently on holiday and wanted the player to wait.

'They begged us to wait a while. Without Martin O`Neill no decision can be taken, and he`s on holiday. In that case, there was nothing more logical than to finish a job with the club where all the doors were open.' Full article, which points out Blues have now spent 12m already with Zigic and Man Utd's Ben Foster : www.birminghammail.net

Petty stuff from the noses, we've been linked to this chap for a while and if we wanted him we'd have had him. He's useless and he deserves them. A poor mans Big John and we've already got 2 of them
