Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk.. Bids DUE?

Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk.. Bids DUE?

Transfer window talk for 29/08/2012

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Asked if there have been any enquiries for Warnock or Hutton, Lambert replied: 'No, none. I can`t do anything if the phone doesn`t go.'

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Enjoyable bit of guarded transfer banter with Paul Lambert tonight. Reporter: 'Are you close to Joe Bennett?' Manager: 'What, personally?!'

James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey
Lambert was coy on Benteke post-match at #AVFC but hopeful of landing Boro's Joe Bennett. I still think double swoop v possible

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Paul Lambert confirms, in the vaguest possible way, his hope that deals for Christian Benteke and Joe Bennett will go through #avfc

Timothy Abraham ‏@TimothyAbraham
Tony Mowbray said #Boro 'not in a hurry' to sell Joe Bennett but 'if the numbers were right' they would 'consider it'. #AVFC

The Express have a report saying that Villa have enquired about Kenwyne Jones that seems to fly in the face of what Paul Lambert has said:

Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones: Kenwyne Jones Interesting Villa? nope: No Defoe Or Jones Move

The Express & Star have some quotes from Paul Lambert about the latest two links:

He says on Bennett: "Hopefully something might happen on that. Has a bid gone in? Near enough. It`s like Benteke, there`s no point in me really talking about it until I know. I think it`s unfair on Villa, unfair on Middlesbrough, unfair on Genk and unfair on the lads themselves. I`ll wait and see. There`s no point me talking about it until something happens. We`ve just got to try and see where we are with Genk."

Meanwhile, Boro boss says on Bennett: 'We've had a few conversations with Aston Villa over the last few days, but he's not a player we're in a hurry to move on,' he told the club's official website. 'He's done exceptionally well for us and is a very talented individual. But like all players, if the numbers get to the right level, we will consider it.'

21 year old, 22 year old. Neither have played in the PL. NO. We need experience for the here and now.

I would agree Fear but if there's one man who can make it happen its Paul Lambert. Cannot put into words how impressed I am with our gaffer. Absolute class. Proper player in his day as well with the medals to prove it.

Bennet is good enough for the Prem defo, the Belgian ?? never seen him play but I trust Lambert with signings ...... 10th will do this year the carry on building next summer with more youth for the future. UTV

Disagree Fear. When do you draw the line? Panic buys of journey men will only take us round in circles. Newcastle's geat season last year was built on players with virtually zero prem experience, as was the spuds team before it. We need young, hungry and talented who can do great things for us and then be sold at a profit.

I cant see what experienced PL player we can get in for the money we can spend on fee and wages.... Realistically a player with prem experience is out of our budget and wont want to come to Villa unless in the twilight of their career looking for a payday swan song - we cant afford those types of players... Michael Essien is being banded about for £8m, sounds exactly what we need, but how much wages and how many games do we get out of him? Personally I am prepared for a tough season of bedding in a promising young squad, keeping the faith and and a good group together to bond and having a real go at a european run with a settled team in 2-3 years time.... key to that is keeping PL as manager for the long term. Lets get behind our man!

And if we go down in the process Adz? Man Utd brought through youth brilliantly but had experience to help them through. I'm all for building for the future, but I'm also wanting some performances in the here and now.

That is the question though se5... we've cut costs, we had to, but we don't have a pauper owner, we do have a fair turnover, it was right to cut back but you can't keep cutting back. We used to be neck and neck with the 4-7 places, now we are miles away.
