Transfer Talk... Mali International + Moses Linked

Transfer Talk... Mali International + Moses Linked

L`Equipe say that Villa are joining AC Milan and Marseille in showing interest in Mali international and AS Nancy midfielder Bakaye Traore.


The 27-year-old midfielder can leave on a free this summer and has already told AS Nancy he won`t be renewing his contract.

Apparently he came to Villa`s notice during the Africa Cup of Nations.

Clubcall reckon that Villa are interested in Wigan Athletic winger/striker Victor Moses.

Apparently our chief scout, Glenn Roeder, has watched the 21-year-old.

Moses agent is Tony Finnegan who helped Nigel Reo-Coker move to Villa. Will that be in our favour or against us though, as his client (NRC) had a mixed time at best at Villa.

Finnegan said: "It's all about confidence at the moment. He's had a long run of games in the Premier League and is now putting the experience he has gained into practice. Victor now has the belief in his own ability to perform at the highest level against any team and I'm just glad no one comes up to me anymore and asks why we sold him to Wigan {from Crystal Palace}. It was the right move because he's got a manager who understands the game and knows what he is doing."

Phew, just when it looked like we were lacking ambition, get linked with a Mali international. I take it all back.

"I'm just glad no one comes up to me anymore and asks why we sold him to Wigan {from Crystal Palace}. It was the right move because he's got a manager who understands the game and knows what he is doing." - So how would moving to a club with a manager that doesn't know what he's doing benefit him now that he's finding his form? haha

lol callum too right Mcleish though may not be here in the summer daily star claiming yesterday Randy plans big summer changes and Mcleish's head will roll in the summer lets hope ay, anyway lets not knock these french league players Cabaye and all the signings Wenger has made from the french league proves there are bargains out there. Victor Moses is a real prospect watched him against the baggies he ripped them apart and chelski even manuire could not cope with him last week.
