Busy day for gossip today!
What is it with these Spurs players, we are linked every time a transfer window comes along!? According to The Daily Star Martin O'Neill will move for Spurs duo David Bentley and Jermaine Jenas in a deal worth £15million.
Other reports suggest that Jenas is a £7million target for Stoke but this one says that he'd cost around £5million to move to Villa with Bentley costing £10m.
The Mirror have the obligatory James Milner article today. They say that Manchester City will offer £25million in a 'take it or leave it' final bid.
Ok, we'll leave it, thanks anyway!
Yesterday's transfer talk (Click Here) said that Manchester City would pay £30million, he must have had a poor day training with England yesterday for his value to go down so quickly!
According to The Sunday Mirror Villa and Spurs are tracking 19-year-old centre-back Jonathan Mensah who is set to play for Ghana at the World Cup this summer. Lazio and Juventus are also linked.
imscouting has a story from La Nazione (Florence newspaper) claiming we'll bid 7million Euro's for 30-year-old Fiorentina goalkeeper Sebastian Frey.
And talking about keepers, Andy Marshall has been released by Villa: Click Here
Meanwhile Graham Taylor has said that you can't criticise MON but if there was one thing the fans would love to see it is a 'marquee signing'. Speaking to Andy Walker at the Sunday Mercury the former Villa and England boss says: 'I think if I was going to say anything on behalf of the Villa supporters, I think some of their frustration is that they`ve been looking for what you would call a 'wow` signing and I don`t think Martin is in to that. I think that`s what Villa supporters have been expecting and I think that they are disappointed that they haven`t had one. I think a lot of them feel that would make the difference.'
Adding 'But you cannot complain about Martin O`Neill`s reign, people will but at the moment you can`t. What Martin knows is that after four years it`s his team. Martin can`t say that he`s still changing things from the David O`Leary reign. You can`t when you`ve been there four years - it`s his team. I just feel that the Villa supporters would like this marquee signing then they would really buy into it."
