Aston Villa TRANSFER Talk Hots Up!

Aston Villa TRANSFER Talk Hots Up!

Few transfer snippets today!

Following: Villa Bid For Wolves Striker? Transfer Talk James Nursey has obviously done some digging and tweeted yesterday:

Don't think Fletcher is coming to#AVFC or that Villa have officially bid for him from what i am hearing

The Sun have linked Villa to 30-year-old Italian defender Simone Farina who plays for Serie B team Gubbio. They call him 'Mr Clean` because he shopped a team mate to the police exposing the match fixing scandal. The report says we`ve offered him a three year deal.


Ipswich boss Paul Jewell has said that Villa have made no further contact about 22-year-old left back Aaron Cresswell Jewell said: "We`ve had no contact from Aston Villa, other than the gentle enquiry that I told you about three weeks ago, and obviously they`ve been at our pre-season games. There`s no interest in any of our other players at the moment. That could change but I`m more interested in bring people in than moving people out. But in football the natural way that things happen is that some players will leave the club. We don`t need to sell, we`ve a very small squad as it is and we want to try and improve it rather than deplete it."

and...Villa Have Enquired About Aaron Cresswell and Ipswich want double what Villa want to pay? Click Here say that Villa are about to approach Spurs again for 23-year-old right-back Kyle Naughton to replace the outgoing Alan Hutton (see: Transfer Talk Including Hutton Looking At Exit )

The report says Lambert is set to go back in for the player he loaned for Norwich last season. Apparently he`d cost around £5million and obviously Lambert already has knowledge on this player, so if Spurs do need to trim their squad, why not eh?!

if i was a PL manager i'd never even attempt to buy from Spurs - Levy drags out transfers for weeks and always manages to get a ridiculously good deal for Spurs, you'll never get a bargain out of them! Keep looking abroad i reckon :)

Am I right in thinking Kyle Naughton is another RB? He's a decent player, but if he is, do we need nother one?

Very hard to deal with but then, if they actually want to sell a player, maybe it would be easier! LOL Yes, right back, sorry, did mean to say, will change full back for right back in the article Pride. He'd replace Hutton basically.

I thought we walked away from Naughton as Spurs wanted £3m when PL was at Norwich but £6m when he came to Villa. Typical of Levy IMO. Great for Spurs but we will always get a poor deal out of them

Didn't think the fletcher thing would pan out and of the others only Cresswell remotely interesting.

interesting to see on SSN this morning that Ricardo Fuller is without a club. Could be an interesting free transfer on a short term deal.

Kyle Naughton can play Left back aswell as right lads, he played left back for Sheff Utd when Kyle Walker played right back at the time, so it coud well be he is cover for both full back positions, This Farinas bloke is a bit of a mysteryto e really ishe actually going tobe a player for us or coach? If he is a player does anyone know if he is any good at all lol

AVB+B: Ricardo Fuller????????

can't see us going for another RB in naughton and cant see us moving for Fletcher either, according to italian paper Gazzetta Forini is considering becoming a fair play ambassador and retiring from playing the offer from Villa is reported to be as a coach to educate our youngsters about fair play and responsability as well as possibly helping out with other coaching aspects.
09/08/2012 13:15:00
i really hope forini is not being signed as a player. great move to teach the youngsters about fair play etc if hes going to be a coach tho! but as a player he is certainly less than average
