Bit of a strange on this.
Is Darren Bent saying that Villa need to spend and bring in more strikers or is he just answering a press man asking what he thinks of the players we`ve been linked to?
Usually a player will say it is up to the manager and leave it at that, but Bent told Sky Sports that he would welcome the competition.
He points out 'We've still got some fantastic strikers at the club. Gabby is injured, Weimann came in did and really well, Nathan Delfouneso looks like he's ready to peak and it's his time."
But adds if Paul Lambert does bring anyone else in, it will only go to help AVFC.
'Defoe is a top international striker. He's a great finisher, he can score goals and make goals for himself. He'd be a fantastic addition. I've played with Kenywyne Jones before and he's a fantastic striker on his day. He's up there with the best of them. If we can get any of them two as well, it's going to be a welcome addition to the football club. I've played with both as well, that always helps. So I'm sure the manager has got someone in mind.'
For me Defoe would be fantastic, BUT he isn`t available now is he? Spurs seem to be using him, if Appy Arry had stayed we might have been able to grab him but not now?
Striker links so far....
My info says we`ve never at any point been interested in Andy Carroll:
