No Offers For Villa Players As Yet!

No Offers For Villa Players As Yet!

Nothing on the transfer front today really, just a few snippets in reference to potential exits.

On twitter, James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey

Said with reference to the James Collins to Sunderland rumours: "O'Neill likes Collins a lot but #AVFC won't give him a bargain & Collins prefers London so a capital club more likely"

He also tweeted something that I`ve also said a few times recently when asked:

#AVFC do not have to sell to buy but are trading carefully & already have a lot of defenders so wise for exits before arrivals

Meanwhile, Paul Lambert has told Mat Kendrick at The Birmingham Mail that he has had no offers for any of the Villa players as yet.

This is the thing isn`t it? We might say 'get rid of him, him and him` but it is easier said than done if other clubs aren`t queuing up to buy them!

I guess that if they don`t get offers for a few defenders, then moves for the likes of Ron Vlaar won`t happen as you can only have so many in your squad?!

When asked if any offers had been made he said: "No, nothing..........Being over here (on tour in USA) makes it a bit more difficult because of the time difference and where you are."

Sad truth is that the way they "performd" last season, a club would have to be daft or desperate to come in for the likes of the back four......

The wages more than anything could be the real stumbling block, thank you MON, at least his madness is coming closer to an end. COTVABU

How many more years have Dunne and Collins got on their contracts? I thought this was their final year.

Collins fancies a move to London? I bet that will have delighted Arsene Wenger and Di Matteo!!!

Collins to London would be a good move - G4S are looking for Olympic security staff I hear?

This was my biggest concern, us being unable to offload the like of Collins Warnock and Dunne due to nobody in there right mind wanting them, lets face it only MoN is mad enough to sign these lot he is ouronly hope unfortunetly and the crafty bugger will pay peanutes as he knows we have a large wae bill thanks to his exploits to consider, he already has had Cueller for nothing after spending £7/8 milion of our money on him to barstool.

Yeah griffgriff good idea! Though if he tried to pass a trouble maker over to a colleague he'd end up hoofing them into the English Channel!

If any of them ARE off to Sunderland it's not likely to happen until late August anyway is it. Patience folks, MON will get there eventually.
