Villa Linked To France U20 Left Back
Transfer talk is still in short supply, wish the Euro`s would hurry up and end so we can get down to some real business!
The Daily Mail say that Villa are looking to sign AS Nancy left-back Massadio Haidara.
Apparently McLeish had lined this one up and Villa have watched him play 10 times. The report says that McLeish sent CEO over to watch him though. I`m not sure about that, surely you send your scouts over?!?!
The 19-year-old has played for the French U20 team.
Wiki say: Massadio Haïdara (born 2 December 1992 in Trappes) is a French football player of Senegalese descent who plays for French club Nancy in Ligue 1. He plays as a left back and made his professional debut on 11 December 2010 in a league match against Sochaux. On 10 January 2011, he signed his first professional contract after agreeing to a three-year deal with Nancy.

The report also repeats the link to Spurs Kyle Naughton at the expense of Alan Hutton.
They also mention Denmark`s international left-back Simon Poulsen as a potential Stephen Warnock replacement if they don`t do the business bringing in Haidara. We`ve been linked to Poulsen before: AZ Alkmaar`s Denmark defender Simon Poulsen: Danish Defender To Save Our Bacon?
