Anthony Annan Next One In?

Anthony Annan Next One In?

Sky Sports are having another 'understands' moment and are suggesting Villa have gone on 'red alert' after Schalke have told 26 year old midfielder Anthony Annan to look for a new club.

So in other words, it could turn out to be as true as me claiming I'm an Olympian!

The Sky Sports report is vague at best on any real link to Villa, but it's based on quotes from the player himself.

'I have not been called up for any pre season games - it's embarrassing. There has been some contact from clubs but I have two years left on my contract with the German club, so we will have to see what happens.'

The Ghana international was loaned to Vitesse Arnham last season, so clearly has no future with Shalke, but are we in the hunt for another midfielder now?

A player that's basically been told to "do one"? It just get's better, not. Talk about scraping the barrel. Where's the quality, that is so desperately needed, imo?

badger, chill out mate. Its a press rumour. If (and its a big if) Lambert wants the player then we all have to accept it and let him get on with building the type of team and squad he wants. I can remember a certain defender with an alcohol problem and dodgy knees who was told to "do one" from old trafford, he went on to be a legend at VP and we still sing his name.....

Seriously struggling, Lambert's cards are that close to Faulkner's chest this season nobody knows anything until we see somebody at VP/Bodymoor or the club announce something. In many ways it's fantastic business by the club to keep things so quiet.

he is a really good player!! was a wonderkid a few years ago playing for ghana and was amazing at rosenborg (albeit in a poor league) the moved to shalke and didnt get a look in. but hes a good strong technically gifted player who ive always liked. (basically he is a clone of makoun lmao!!)

He would be brilliant! Hard working defensively, and with some "Xavi-qualities", i.e quick on the first meters, excellent close-up technique, hard to get off the ball and very, very good passingskills. And he's short... But, a true hidden gem that i think we would be very lucky to get! Was one that stood out for ghana in the last world cup too. Go get him!

i think the outcome of the Makoun saga will determine whether we make a move or not, this guy looks like his twin FFS!

It's the way Villa love to do things Mike and it is good to see us able to get back to doing that! Although frustrating in some ways I like it. Just quietly doing our business. No waves, tsunami's, earthquakes. It's good and been a long time coming. Now roll on the beginning of the season. I am in withdrawal mode now

AVBornandbred, I wish I had the belief you do in PL and his miracle working abilities. My money says things aren't going to go as smooth as you think this season. We quite simply need some top notch quality, as it's sorely lacking, imo. Although, yes, I see your point re God. How many of those have we EVER signed though?

I've been massively impressed everytime I have seen him play for Ghana, reckon it could be a great signing.
