Mega Deal For Villa + Scott Parker? Press Links

Mega Deal For Villa + Scott Parker? Press Links

Not sure this is really new information but a report by Tim Gray in The Daily Star claims Martin O'Neill has accepted the fact that James Milner wants out and so will do a deal as long as it involves Manchester City players in exchange.

The report says both Stephen Ireland and Nedum Onuoha + £15million in cold, hard cash will be the asking price.

Got to say, that looks like a good deal to me!

Sunderland are apparently also interested in Onuoha.

A report by Graham Hill in The Sun insists, despite West Ham saying he isn't for sale, that Villa will bid for midfielder Scott Parker once the money for Milner comes in.

Vital West Ham also mention the link:

Not convinced! Parker has played for Charlton Athletic, (Norwich City on loan), Chelsea, Newcastle United and moved to West Ham for the 2007-08 season.

Parker's player profile:

Ireland, Parker, Robbie Keane, Onuoha... would start to be shaping up to be a decent summer of signings wouldn't it?

A year ago Ireland would have cost around £18m, offers for Onouha at the moment would be around £6m. Kind of values Milner at £39m!! Three times what we paid for him. Looking at it another way, if the £15m is spent on Keane (£7.5m) and Eduardo (£7.5m) that is a deal of Milner for Keane+Eduardo+Onouha+Ireland. That would be BARGAIN of the year and actually leave us with very little else to add to the squad!! Get rid of the 'deadwood', add a few million and try to get a decent defensive midfielder (we would need another with Ireland, Downing, Young and Keane in the team!!) - this management lark is easy!!

Not keen on Parker. Although experienced - he's got one maybe two years left in him. As for Ireland and the Lap of ..... id take them. and for £15m to that stupid Arab who's ruined football? Id say no chance. You can Have Milner for a cut price £15m plus those two or you can go and destroy another country and more lives like they did in Dubai!

rather richards and ireland
07/07/2010 10:32:00
i'd take ireland as a straight swap for Milner if he wasn't such a nut job, he is a better player
07/07/2010 11:03:00
its a good deal and if it happens we are laughing.... bit unsold on Parker..... i think KP Boateng should come here as well....
07/07/2010 11:07:00
Keane and Ireland, yes. Onouha I'm not so sure about...Parker I would seriously like here. Add to that Micah Richards. Don't think Carew has another full season left in him because of his back health and for that reason I don't want us left with just small strikers...come on, lets get Beattie for a couple of million or a punt on Kenwyne Jones as I totally believe that guy is miles better than Harewood and can be as good as Carew in the right team.
