French Midfielder Linked + Brad Guzan Coming Home?

French Midfielder Linked + Brad Guzan Coming Home?

Sky Sports and The Sun are linking Villa with Rennes midfielder Yacine Brahimi.

The 22-year-old can play as a winger or midfield playmaker.

He is certainly looking to leave Rennes at least! He told RMC, a regular read in the Fear household: 'They do not count on me at Rennes. With the style of play there are times where I don't play - our relationship is broken now and I have reached the point of no return.'

The rumour is he will sign on a year long loan deal with a view to a permanent move next summer.

The Birmingham Mail say that Villa are set to re-sign Brad Guzan. The Independent, amongst others, also cover the story.

Our latest poll asks if you would re-sign Guzan.

With our new manager I wonder if Brad will be get picked over Shay on better form? We don't know what's in Shay's contract a but after spending so much time sitting on his arse at Man City he may have some clause built in? Who knows and time will tell.

Here here. But if guzan does come back I hope he gets a shot at starting 11. I like given but guzan was in fine form whilst shay was injured and thought it rude that he lost his spot just because given was well again.

Surely players don't have an automatic pick clause... Do they???

Guzan I like that rumour. I hear he is a fine keeper with great shot stopping ability? Anyone seen him play... oh yes er...

I'd take Guzan back, for sure, but curious why he would want to. He can't have been told he'd be our new number 1 by default, and you'd imagine he'd be our number 2 unless Given is sold/has a mare.

Big fan of Shay Given, but I like Guzan too, and it would be great to have him back on board to provide real cover and competition for the No 1 jersey because poor Shay looked to be struggling with injury at the Euros. Brahimi I know nothing about, but he could be worth a go, may be this years Cabaye??

Zarch, no mate, I've been assured by a few in the game, not just Villa, that there aren't clauses in contracts that if fit, you have to play a player, and I've been told it would be unworkable.
