Blah, Blah, Blah, Vlaar Calls Deal Off?!
John Wragg at www.express.co.uk has some quotes from Holland international Ron Vlaar who appears angry that Villa haven`t followed through and bought him.

The report says that 26-year-old Vlaar has pulled out of the £3.2million move having had talks last week at Villa but not hearing anything since.
The defender said:
"The chance that I will now sign for Aston Villa is almost zero. I don`t like to be messed about. You can write down that this transfer is now off."
John explains that he is rated at £8million but there is a £3.2m release clause. Seems strange doesn`t it?
Feyenoord managing director Eric Gudde has also said the deal is off adding the way Vlaar has been treated is 'not very good`.
Ouch. All seems very strange. Without any inside knowledge, looks a bit clumsy doesn`t it? It might be, for some reason, that Paul Lambert decided against the move, but then, why invite him over and show him around?
Be interesting to see if Lambert responds!
