Exit Door Beckons For Makoun + Defoe In?

Exit Door Beckons For Makoun + Defoe In?

So, looks like Jean Makoun will not now be returning.

Having failed thus far to get a work permit and last night at the fans forum Paul Lambert said he "had not got a clue what he looks like" and would require "a sat nav" to find him.

This morning one site claims that Rennes are about to make an offer for the midfielder, although to be fair, there seems no flesh on the bone to that link, so who knows?!

Who cares!?!

And Villa have been linked to Jermain Defoe who might be looking for a new club having spent much of last season on the bench. The link is so stretched I'll not link to it!

According to the papers he's been signed by Rennes, which allows Yann M'Vila to move to either Arsenal or Spurs. Some transfer funds and a nice bit of wage cutting for us.

yeah, I'd not really take caughtoffside as gospel in all honesty. Pretty obvious he is going to have to find himself a new club though so hopefully Rennes or a.n.other are interested.

If jean ll makoun is off to Rennes maybe it will pave the way for yacine brahimi to come the other way

Yes gents. Think that Defoe would suit our new style of play very well.Sadly it could never work due to Bent not being top dog (which I think that he needs for his confidence,) his wages and don't think that you'd get him to move from Norf London atall.

love defoe as a player but he's not what we need right now imo. I'd rather see some more muscle and height added up front to give us a few options.

As I've said on other articles and threads, Defoe will probably end up at QPR if he goes aywhere. He prefers "the smoke"

caughtoffisde got that rumour from the Mirror not that I believe paper talk either... As for Brahimi I think PL siad he wasnt after him and there was no truth in it... I wouldnt mind Defoe myself but I will agree there is probably very little to the rumour, however, I will say Defoe doesnt seem like the kind of player AVB likes so I wouldn be surprised if they try and ship him out when they get a new striker...
