Vlaar NOT The Cheap Option For Lambert?

Vlaar NOT The Cheap Option For Lambert?

Feyenoord's sporting director has said that Ron Vlaar's buy out price is certainly not the cheap option for Aston Villa, but we are apparently prepared to meet it.

After the twitpics yesterday leaving most fans debating whether the man in the photo was Ivan Ramis, it has turned out it's another left field pick by the new manager in 27 year old Dutch centre halve Ron Vlaar, who has already said he is more than considering joining us.

Now Feyenoord's sporting director, Martin Van Geel, has confirmed everything and said Ron wants the move.

'Ron visited Birmingham yesterday and wants to continue his career at Aston Villa. It's true that he has a buy out clause. I won't reveal how much but we're obviously talking millions here.'

Feyenoord have apparently taken two official teamshots this season, one featuring Vlaar and the other not, so they are definitely expecting his departure. With the buy out clause rumoured to be in the region of £3m he could well turn out to be a complete steal for Lambert going off how highly rated he was by Feyenoord fans, and as many have commented on the forum, you generally don't tend to give players and their agent a tour of the facilities unless a deal is nigh on done.

I am getting more and more quitley optimistic as this pre-season progresses, i also think Randy has told Lambert there is money available and not all the amount is released in the media so other clubs do not ask too much like they used too as soon as Randy took over imo GOOD TIMES UTV!!!

I read that the fee is likely to be about £8m. No idea if this is good business or not. Excitin' though, innit?

CT I would be surprised if it is anywhere near £8m to be honest as its a "buy out clause"..... If the reported £3m (as above) is near the markt hen fair enough..... £8m on the performances I saw him put in for The Netherlands in the Euros then I think its over the odds

Lol, spot on BOF. It's not euros, as 8m euros is about 6.25m quid..... whatever, it may come out in the wash....... then again it may not...(undisclosed)

cant say i know much about this guy but a defender who can score goals is worth an extra 6-10 points a season and something we have needed since Laursen quit. makes a huge difference to the league table over the full season
