Karim El Ahmadi Looking For A Twist Of Lime

Karim El Ahmadi Looking For A Twist Of Lime

Looks like the earlier rumour, see: AVFC Transfer Talk - Dutch Defending Incoming? is right.

skysports.com quote Feyenoord`s Karim El Ahmadi via RTV Rijnmond confirming talks are underway.

He says: 'This is a dream for every player. I hope it will go through. I was on the verge of extending my contract but then this came along. I am 27, that's an age where you can look for a new challenge."

He says the Premiership is the 'best league in the world` and the report says he is already in England and waiting for confirmation of an agreement between the clubs before he talks terms.

A contact on Facebook just sent me a message (thanks Ivan)

"Almadi was last year voted best midfielder in the Dutch comp which dragged Feynoord to 2 place in the table.. yes he did play in Dubai 2 years ago but this year was one of the best midfielders !!! He will be a bargin and a good player for Villa..."

Looks like a pretty hard worker based on a few youtube clips. Just what we need if that's to go on. For €2.8 million it falls into budget. Could be a very good capture this.

IMO a defensive midfield player was our PRIORITY. Right age and decent price. Only time will tell but I am pleased with this signing (presuming iot happens!)..Villa's version of Scott Parker at a younger age and fraction of the price?

Beardofolof - remember the last time that happened? Moustapha Salifou anyone?!?! :) However, we haven't had Adebayor harking on about how this guy's the Togolese (or in this case Moroccan) Zidane, so I'm confident he'll actually be a decent player. Read a few articles on him and his time in Holland; certainly seems highly regarded as a committed battler - just what we need!! Roll on the next one!

Looks pretty impressive to me. If Lambert fancies him, then bring him on! And many more!
