Vlaar & Snodgrass In? Makoun Out?
Looks like the Ron Vlaar: Ron Vlaar link (click here) is all systems go!
Feyenoord sporting director Martin van Geel has confirmed talks as reported yesterday: Vlaar NOT The Cheap Option For Lambert?
Sky Sports have quotes from the Holland international defender.
He told De Telegraaf, a regular read in Fear Towers,
'I cannot say too much."
I should leave the quotes as that really shouldn`t I!?!
He continued, before being so rudely interrupted:
'On Sunday I was in Birmingham and I spoke with coach Paul Lambert and I got a very positive impression. Aston Villa just want me. I have talked to our technical director Martin van Geel and I told him I liked the idea of moving to them."
Adding that a move to Villa would 'be a dream come true`.
lol, he also says his trip to Villa was meant to be a secret. Makes you wonder why he was showed around whilst a tour was taking place then!? Wasn`t it a young Villa fan who took the snap and then it took on a life of its own on the twitter and facebook pages?!
And also in The Mirror, there is a report saying that Jean Makoun might be sold because he has not learned to speak English.
The report goes on to say Lambert plans to offload three or four players to free up funds to bring in Feyenoord defender Ron Vlaar and Leeds midfielder Robert Snodgrass.
