A little birdie just told me that Luke Young may well be on his way for talks concerning a move to Fulham. Now I can't hang my hat on this rumour and I do like to be clear on 'itk' stuff but seems there could be some substance to this. I hope, if he hasn't a chance of getting back into the Villa team, that he does get sorted, I don't think he ever let us down and will no doubt get a good reception from the Villa faithful if he returns with another club.
James Nursey at The Mirror has a report saying that the James Milner to Manchester City deal will be completed by next week AND that Stephen Ireland will be moving to Villa Park.
The speculation is that the clubs are set to compromise and some whispers are suggesting Milner has made it clear he wants out. Anyway, it seems that this move is likely so the sooner the better. Must say if we get Ireland in exchange, we have a player of at least equal ability and one who has possibly got more chance of adding to our goals tally from midfield? Some say he is a berk off the pitch. Yeah, so?
Reports including The Mirror article say that when the move happens we will go for Robbie Keane from Spurs and bid for Celtic's Aiden McGeady. Other reports have said that Villa won't match Celtic's valuation of their player and if we get £25m or so for Milner, the price of players we want to buy will also go up!!!
The Mirror report also says:
Curtis Davies could be on the move to Spurs and that could be part of the Keano deal.
Finally, the move for Steve Sidwell to Fulham looks to be off following the departure of Roy Hodgson as new boss Mark Hughes doesn't want the midfielder.
More on Aiden McGeady from Vital Celtic. Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is reportedly refusing to comment on Villa's rumoured interest in Aiden McGeady, who is currently discussing a potential £9.5million move to Spartak Moscow. The 24-year-old Ireland international is apparently in Moscow to discuss terms for a move which could see him earn £40,000-a-week before tax plus bonuses - but there has been speculation Aiden would prefer a move to England and, specifically, to link up with former boss O'Neill. According to the Birmingham Mail: 'O'Neill is still refusing to comment on Villa's interest in Aiden McGeady amid reports that the Celtic winger is holding out for a move to Villa Park after rejecting a £9.5 million move to Spartak Moscow.'
