HA!  Transfer Links Back!  Few Links TO Villa

Fair bit going on today...

James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey
Only other goss this am is I know #AVFC fancied Daniel Sturridge of#CFC on loan but were told v unlikely. See now Sturridge linked with LFC

Breaking news tonight is #AVFC in for Genk striker Christian Benteke. Might as well name him now as other people have!





skysports.com are reporting that Genk have turned down our bid for Belgian international striker Christian Benteke.

Sky then claim the 21-year-old has gone on strike because of their refusal to sell him. Not the sort of character we want in football, let alone at Villa IF true is it?

The Independent amongst others, have the link to the player and say that Villa have watched him on several occasions.

He has 3 goals in 5 games this season and also scored for Belgium in the 4-2 win over Holland.

The Express And Star say he is valued at around £6million and has also been linked to Everton and Fulham.

The player said: "If I have to leave Genk then it will be for England. This is my dream since I was young. My agent knows what I want. Hopefully, a solution should be found quickly."

Sky say that we have also made a move for Charlton midfielder Dale Stephens. The 24-year-old only joined the Addicks last summer.

Another in the Express & Star claim Villa are after 28-year-old Wolves striker Kevin Doyle but surely Wolves can`t sell a third top player this transfer window if they have ambitions of getting promotion back to the promised land !

Everton are also said to be interested.

Would like to see a few more experienced players, we can't rely on a team full of kids I don't think. In fact, I know we can't! Man Utd brought through great youth BUT had loads of experience to help them out.

We certainly need a few more senior players, Tonight is a huge game, if we win it could kick start oor seson. Anything less and Sunday's game becomes even more difficult. COTVABU

Like Kevin Doyle puts in a lot of honest effort problem for me is he reminds me of Gabby lot of effort but short on goals,and how much would he cost 10 mill ? Rather see that sort of money spent on Dawson of Spuds good solid centre half alongside Vlar. I suspect however that 9-10 mill will be our total spend in this window unless we clear out more players.

BBC saying we've had a £5.5m offer for Bentecke rejected. Come on PL/RL, get it sorted!
