Feyenoord Announce Villa Signing Of Ron Vlaar

Feyenoord Announce Villa Signing Of Ron Vlaar

The Feyenoord official site has announced that Villa have now signed Ron Vlaar, medical pending.

Updated.......

Now confirmed by Villa as well: www.avfc.co.uk



www.feyenoord.nl

Their official site says the defender reached agreement with Villa today (Friday 27th) and will go through a medical on Monday.

Rough google translate:

'It was known to us that after seven years Ron had put his sights on a move abroad, in this case a famous club in the Premier League ', says technical director Martin van Geel. 'Because of the capricious behavior of Aston Villa was generally known that Vlaar a limited compensation in his contract had stood. Now Ron has reached an agreement with Aston Villa, the club has also confirmed that they respond to what we want to come up to ask him. Business wise, we have it so when down. '

He also says he will be a huge loss as he was a 'figurehead` at the club, 'the captain and a true leader`.

I still say caution until our official site announce it but looks pretty much a done deal.

Apparently Vlaar really impressed #AVFC in talks with his intelligence, physical stature and desire to make it in the Premier League

Would like to see it "officially" from AVFC, but if it is a done deal, then finally, welcome Ron, you've made a wise choice.

According to Vlaar, Villa have apoligized for their "behaviour" these past few weeks. Oh well, don't mind really. Sometimes, these things take time, especially when abroad shortly after the initial talks took place. Think Feyenoord are doing a PR-thingie for their own fans ...

Hope Cresswell signs, too. Whenever Dunne is on the pitch there is always the horrible feeling that he's going to hoof it in the Villa net. His OG record threatens to rival GA11's 'goals for' record.

Nothing to apologise for, maybe Koeman and Van Squeal might want to keep their gobs shut next time, act professionally and not via the press.
