The Mirror say that Villa could miss out on a bid for Chelsea`s left-back Ryan Bertrand.
Apparently the 22-year-old, who has made the Team GB squad, is rated by Roberto Di Matteo who has asked for him to get an improved contract.
Does he hang around for years on the bench behind massive money signings or join a team where he`ll be able to play though? Is he really going to displace Ashley Cole? I guess having made the Champions League final he might well rate his chances at Stamford Bridge, although that was as a winger and due to a litany of injuries.
One bit of the report I do not like. It says we would be willing to take him on a season long loan. I`m sorry, that is small time, we should NOT be a feeder club helping give other PL teams players experience (as we did with Spurs and Kyle Walker). Then again, I`m totally against the rule change allowing PL teams to loan players from each other.
Di Matteo said: "Ryan is a very talented player, who will get his opportunities to play and develop and will become a very good player."
PLEASE Villa, don`t train him up next season for Chelsea.
