Gabby Agbonlahor To Spurs + Other Transfer Talk

Gabby Agbonlahor To Spurs + Other Transfer Talk


There are a few repeats today that Manchester City are willing to test Villa's resolve and bid £27million for James Milner as mentioned yesterday in our football transfer round up ( AVFC Press Transfer Talk + All Links So Far )

Ah, here is another of our young star players linked outwards, what joy! This time The Express claims that Spurs boss Harry Redknapp will bid £22million for Gabriel Agbonlahor.

The report calls Gabby an 'England reject' which is a bit harsh, he's still young, he'll get another chance and will be a more rounded player come the European Championship.

The report suggests that Robbie Keane will be used as a makeweight in the deal.

Our latest poll asks if you'd sell Gabby?

The Mirror say that Everton are now in the race with Villa 'target' Nedum Onuoha. Apparently Sunderland are also interested in the 23-year-old Manchester City defender and have made a bid.

And unless I'm very much mistaken, that is about that for today's gossip.

I dont think there is any truth in that Agbonlahor rumor. for one i dont think he will fit into our style of play and Levy is not stupid enough to pay 22 million for him

agreed, but i hope levy has a bad day and splashes something over 15m for him. That would be a gread deal for the Villa IMO. (Now i have to wait for the certain critisizm from fellow villa fans)

DO NOT SELL. I'm not criticising anyone above; but we need to keep these players to ATTRTACT other players...if we sell and have loads of dosh it doesn't guarantee players coming in. We need to build around them. We should buy mixtures of youth and experience.....Ireland, Parker, Bent, Keane...four very different but very good players, all with something to offer and more importantly the older players can help our younger players...Keane can teach Gab how to use pace effectively, Parker can hold a midfield and move forwards and back, not just sideways like Petrov (who I rate), Bent can show Heskey - the door!!!!! Ireland can attack and either invigorate players or score goals or both. Add to that mix a surprise signing like Benayoun and we're okay......however, we all know Benayoun will be off to Rafas new army so forget it.

Do you think West Hamwould have NRC or Sidders plus a few million for Parker? If you ask me, NRC messed up there and has always regretted leaving.

I actually think it's more important to keep Gabby than Milner - just my opinion - I think he will develop into a great striker. £20m would prob be a fair price. We could replace him with Bent for maybe £16m but IMO this would be a backward step.

d8ost: And they're all realistically buyable too. I've tried to do the math, here goes. Sidwell=4m for Parker, 7m for Keane, Ireland 9m, and Beye(Sunderland wanted him last window)+13m = 33m. Money saved on the outgoing players. To be fair, West Ham and Sunderland, despite their inflated press wealth are not actually any wealthier than us and have achieved far less with respective buying regimes recently, so are both more likely to accept NRC, Beye, Shorey, Sidders, Heskey, Young, Salifou and the like as makeweights in order to get their better players off them....especially if their players want to come....and what English player wouldn't? MON has demonstrated that even injured players like Downing get a call-up if you play at the Villa, add this to the fact that by next European Cup the like of Heskey, perhaps Rio, Becks, Carragher won't make the cut then only a fool of an English player would not come. This works for us because no club keeps an unhappy player even if he is their best striker-midfielder etcetera.

Imagine it Astriel....and I bet you didn't even think about Milner once! Just goes to show that if he did go for 27m-30m then we would only outlay 3m-6m; meaning we'd have money left for the next window - which MON won't use :-( And possibly get Ireland for free!!!!!!!! Very realistic too. Please MON, do it.

koolbill: do you think you could put that into a mail to MON? ;) he could be the most successful Villa manager in the last 15 + years with that team

Jesus Christ, £22m, they are original these red tops aren't they? He's good for 12 goals a season, but most of them usually come in the first 10 games, we have someone like that called Jermain Defoe haha.
