Ireland Discussions Resume

Ireland Discussions Resume

If rumours are to be believed Stephen Ireland has spoken with club officials today over his proposed move from Manchester City.

Sky Sports News, amongst others are carrying the news that Ireland has entered into further discussions with us despite the shock departure of Martin O'Neill yesterday.

There's no direct confirmation that he has attended Bodymoor Heath but it seems yet another strange peace of timing given only a few days ago it was reported that wages were a stumbling block and he was unsure even if he wanted to move to Villa, regardless of the City situation.

Hopefully we'll get something a little more concrete, but it would be a turn up for the books if the deal is now agreed given he presumably has no idea who the next man in the hotseat will be.

Don't want Ireland. He doesn't want us and we seem like his 4th choice. Maybe Lerner won't pay the wages that the rest of the top 6 (let alone City) are??

Hope this isn't true, signing players without knowing if the new manager will want them is absolute madness

I want someone no one else does - Holloway. He is brilliant.

glensider, in the interests of the club we have to sell Milner - unless he is willing to sign a new contract right now (which he might do, now that O'Neill has gone, though it seems unlikley). Man City may have decided that they will only do a deal with us if we take Ireland. This isn't an ideal scenario, granted, but Man City get to call the shots because they have the money. If Ireland is being valuedat £8m, I think that we would get that money back on him, even if he had an indifferent season. We won't get offered £25m for Milner again.
