Bosman Free Trio Talks On Hold Until Summer
The Independent has quotes from assistant manager Peter Grant today via John Curtis at the Press Association.
Grant has confirmed that they have put contract talks on hold for our out of contract players until the summer.
Emile Heskey, Carlos Cuellar and Brad Guzan can all leave on a free.
Cuellar has already said he`d like to stay at Villa.
Grant said: 'The gaffer (Alex McLeish) has said he would rather put all these talks back until the season ends."
Adding, 'Alex has always been one of those guys who prefers to do his business at the end of the season. He knows the most important thing is Villa winning games. His thinking is 'I'd rather leave it as much as I possibly can' and I think the players we are working with understand that.'
Fingers crossed they don`t want to keep Heskey. But the other two? You`d think now would be the time IF they want them.
Hey ho, funny old game.
