I have a real grumpy head on me for the transfer gossip after last night but hey, lets see what the press are saying...
Rob Beasley of The Sun says that Spurs will test Villa with a bid for Ashley Young. Wouldn`t surprise me to be honest and the fact he has already moved further south to Herts.... ?
The report says there will be a £15million bid. This despite Harry Redknapp a good few weeks back saying there was nothing in the link and pointing out that he`d have nowhere to play him?
Appy Arry will apparently offer some cash and then any of the following players.... Robbie Keane, David Bentley, Nico Kranjcar and Jamie O'Hara. Good grief, Villa in a NOT being linked to Jermaine Jenas shocker!
The report quotes a source saying Harry is a fan of Young and would like to have him at White Hart Lane. 'So he's hoping the likes of Keane and Bentley could tempt Villa into doing business."
Ok, so maybe all those players + £7million ? See, I can make these things up as well!
IF Young won`t commit to Villa though, I would get rid of him for as much as we can get.
Next up, this time in The Daily Mail has John Carew linked to West Bromwich Albion for around £1million. With the fall out between player and manager and (unless he was injured again?) him not being on the bench last night, it does look like the sometimes strikers time is up at Villa.
This report also links us with striker Pablo Osvaldo of Espanyol.
The Daily Mail also say that Leicester City want Emile Heskey on loan but Villa will only let him go if it is a permanent deal.
Yesterday the same paper, The Daily Mail, said Fulham were after John Carew and had a price tag of £3million?!
The Mirror say that Wolves will compete with Villa for the signature of 23-year-old Boro defender David Wheater.
Manager Tim Sherwood has spoken of his disappointment - and shouldered the blame - for today's one nil loss to Stoke City.
