Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Just to update on the Christian Benteke situation, it seems Villa have been given encouragement by Genk that a deal can be done #avfc

Timothy Abraham ‏@TimothyAbraham
As things stand...Not a single one of Villa's signings during this window had played in the Premier League before they joined. A problem?

Neil Moxley ‏@Neil_Moxley_DM
'@petecolley: Villa in talks with Crewe over midfielder Ashley Westwood...... Presumably Dale Stevens deal going cold!'

Timothy Abraham‏@TimothyAbraham
Another League One #AVFC import (according to @John__Percy ) - Crewe Alex captain @ARWesty04 looks to be midfield signing on the cards.

See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashley_Westwood

He made his Crewe debut on 28 March 2009, coming on as a second half substitute in the Football League One clash with Millwall at Gresty Road, which ended in a 1-0 defeat. In December 2009, the player, following a string of impressive performances, signed a contract tying him to the club until 2012. Despite previously only playing 22 minutes of first team football in the 08-09 season, Westwood was named Crewe's player of the year for the 2009-2010 season.[2] The campaign saw the midfielder score six goals in 36 league appearances. Speaking of the player's success, Crewe assistant manager Steve Davis commented: 'He's a local lad and he's come from nowhere. People didn't really know much about him because he wasn't one of the young rising stars, but over the last 18 months he's kicked on and shown what he can do.'

On 17 November 2010, Westwood signed a new deal which will keep him at the club until 2014

I would class Vlaar as experienced enough, he is 27 and has come from good clubs.. Just no premiership experience... I think he is gonna be a Top buy for us

Seeing the likes of Charlie Adam, Berbatov, Adam Johnson, Dawson etc going to our rivals whilst we bolster the youth team is starting to get worrying tbh.

Agreed Schoolboyerror. What worries me is many clubs around us have strengthened with very strong players at a low price. While I will judge the players once they play I am just shocked that despite the massive cutting of wages we have done that we can't afford these top players. Particularly considering that we were one of the top 20 most valuable clubs in the world... And AntonVilla - how many of those signings were done by PL? It is like saying how many fantastic new players has SAF found for Man U? We aren't Newcastle or Man U. We have little to no history of unearthing the next rooney/ronaldo etc...

Lambert saying his decision alone to concentrate on bringing in unknown youngsters - "they're hungry and who said they not good enough". lets hope he knows his onions from his plums. Brave & Dangerous strategy ?????????
