At last, a decent link to a player with Premiership experience!
The Mirror is linking us with 30-year-old Man City defender Joleon Lescott.
Nice, first off he has experience in bundles and secondly, he`s a Villa fan!
The report says the defender is available but his wages might be an issue. I guess it depends on him, does he want regular football playing for his boyhood club, or to sit on the bench and collect the wages? That is his decision obviously!
Everton and Sunderland are also said to be interested.
The report suggests he is rated at around £10million. Cheaper than the cost of relegation for sure.
But hasn't Mancini said that no one will leave or arrive in January?
The Mirror also say we are looking for a 'ball winning midfielder` and possibly a new left back with doubts over newbie Joe Bennett and academy product Eric Lichaj.
And in the out column?
The Mirror repeat the rumours that both Shay Given and Darren Bent would be available if any decent offers come in.
Another rumour is that Alex McLeish wants to take Barry Bannan to Nottingham Forest. The report doesn`t say whether this would be a loan or a sale.
insidefutbol say that Villa and Spurs are after 'contract rebel` Moussa Sissoko according to a French radio station.
His contract at Toulouse ends next summer and the 23-year-old is looking to move on. Juventus are also said to be interested in the midfielder. Very loose link that.
