NO To Owen. NO To Carroll. Bye Bye Collins!
Following .... The Obligatory Annual Michael Owen To Villa Link! we have an update!
Mat Kendrick at The Birmingham Mail, currently on tour with the team in the US of A asked Lambert who said on the rumour he had met with Owen...
"No, that won`t happen." Adding they hadn`t made an enquiry.
"That`s a non-starter. He`s a top player, no doubt, a really top player, but that`s for another team."
And following the Andy Carroll links, see: Andy Carroll from Liverpool: Lambert Admits He'd Like England Striker and Andy Caroll not available on loan: Ooh Ahh Ron Vlaar?! + Andy Carroll Update
Lambert, despite previously hinting he would be interested, said: "There`s nothing on Andy Carroll, no."
The latest on Carroll is that Liverpool won`t loan him and want £16m. He wanted to stay and fight for his place and will have talks with Brendan Rodgers.
The Mirror also link James Collins to Sunderland again, can`t be bothered to link, it is no different to the other links previously and it is bound to happen, well, he`s bound to go somewhere.
