As rumours of James Milner`s imminent departure grow Martin O`Neill has been somewhat open with his praise for Celtic midfielder Aiden McGeady, and interestingly, mentioned a sell-to-buy policy at Villa Park.
The Villa manager has admitted in press interviews during the clubs pre-season trip to Ireland that Jimmy Milner has 'intimated` that he wishes to leave the club for money-bags FC, Manchester Citeh.
During the same interviews, he has been singing the praises of the 24 year old Scottish midfielder McGeady, who broke into O`Neill`s Celtic squad as a youngster and Monny full believes that the Scottish born, Irish international could make it within the English Premier League as he doth warbled!
'I think Aiden McGeady has the ability to play in the Premier League, without question,'
'I had him as a kid at Celtic and played him without worrying too much about his youth.
'He played against AC Milan one night in the Champions League at Celtic Park and he was absolutely fantastic.'
With Spartak Moscow circling over the Celtic star, O`Neill was as usually relatively obstructive when quizzed on names-in to Villa Park, whilst names-out are so popularly discussed, with one very alarming quote:
'We have been linked with an awful lot of players and I would expect that because we are a top quality Premier League side."
'There's no point in me mentioning names but, without wanting to lose players of the calibre of Milner, we would want to try to recruit some players.
'But, as the chairman said at the back end of last season, it's probably going to be a case of having to sell to buy and that's something I'm delving into at the moment.'
