AVFC Saturday Transfer Talk - No More Signings?

AVFC Saturday Transfer Talk - No More Signings?

You know me, a massive fan of loans for Aston Villa! Ahem. I was only thinking the other day we don`t have enough and low and behold, today in the Daily Mail we are linked with 22-year-old Slovenia midfielder Armin Bacinovic who has seen a dip in form mean he has lost his place in the Pamermo team.

They quote his agent Amir Ruznic who said: 'Everything is still open. Aston Villa are really serious, as are Chievo. We might have to wait until the last few days of the transfer window.'

Villa will, no doubt about it, be delighted the agent is talking about a move in the press!

Wiki: wikipedia.org/wiki/Armin_Bačinović





Sky Sports run the same story and say we face 'stiff competition` from Chievo and Napoli.

His agent is again quoted in Zurnal24, a regular read in the Fear household: 'Everything is still open at the moment. Aston Villa are really serious, but as are Chievo. I really thought that by the weekend, everything would be sorted, but I have a feeling that we might just have to wait until the very last few days of the transfer window. It's a fact that Armin would like to stay with his current club Palermo, but only if he could play regular first-team football. President Maurizio Zamparini has a high opinion of him, but we'll see what talks with other clubs will eventually bring to us.'

To be fair, if this is a loan WITH an option to buy, nice one. IF it isn`t then no thanks, enough is enough, we`ve had our 'lift` with Keano!

www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk say that Leeds are interested again in a loan move for 23-year-old Eric Lichaj. Now loans OUTWARD are a good thing for the youth players, no grumbles from me on that! LOL

Lichaj had a spell at Leeds before he required surgery on a hip problem and made 16 appearances for them.

Talking about loans and how bizarre as we were talking about this in the forum yesterday saying him and Delfouneso need to go out on loan for some much needed experience!

Vital Leeds report that former Leeds United legend Peter Lorimer has revealed that Leeds are at advanced stages of negotiations to bring Fabian Delph back to Elland Road on loan.

Meanwhile McLeish, under pressure not to equal the worst run of home losses since 1963 today v Everton, has indicated Robbie Keane might be the only move this January. He said to Sky Sports:

'It's a case of keeping and steering the ship in the right direction in terms of the wages. We have a clear vision through Randy Lerner and Paul Faulkner that we have to manage the wages." Adding, "There's no way we will add to the wages unless some of the wages are offloaded."

'I am not in any hurry to lose any of my players. Only if it was an attractive proposition would we do anything so it's very unlikely we would let any of our players go.'

He also says, despite loads of links, that there have been no approaches at all for James Collins. He said: 'There's not been an approach as such. We hear there is interest for James and he should be proud of that. He should be proud he is a wanted man. But, saying that, he is an Aston Villa player. He has just moved into a new house so we would hope James is here for a long time to come.'

Oh the idiot is definately "steering the ship in the right direction"- if relegation is our ambition..... Steering very close to the rocks at best! Why doesn't he jump into a lifeboat and get away from the ship, otherwise it'll be two consecutive ships he's sunk!!!!

I don't like McLeish. But what I dislike even more is the fact that Lerner won't let him build his own team or back him. I remember the General saying Mcleish will be backed - total lies. Our board are mugging us all off Mcleish included. Randy out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Totally 100% agree Stig! I've been saying the same thing for a while now, The bloke (Lerner) is ruining our great club. Simply because he does not understand English football & the passion that we have for our great club. (Sell up Lerner to someone who cares).
