Villa Battle With Fulham For Midfielder

Villa Battle With Fulham For Midfielder

James Nursey at The Mirror says that Villa are looking to take Derek Boateng from under the noses of Fulham.

The 29-year-old Ghana international midfielder is apparently able to leave his Ukraine team, FC Dnipro, this month.

He`s had a medical at Fulham but Villa are also trying to grab him.

would be fantastic but A) it's probably not true he seems too experienced fo Lambert and will have his own opinion, B) given the choice between Jol and Lambert he'll choose Jol C) relative league position and form makes fuham more attractive and D) he'll choose london over brum.

Surely not realistic. Never played for anyone half decent at the age of 29. Did he just slip through the net like so many of us or is this complete rubbish?? Think that even Birmingham is better than the Ukraine though so he'd jump at the chance.

We well be find. N'Zogbia Quote "For me the best form of defence is to attack. In a couple of games we’re going to start winning”. So we well lose against Bradford and West Brom. Joys!

Dont know him as a player, but at least he might offer some experience to the middle of the park that is much needed

Reported by the Mirror so it must be BS.

All this lack of transfer activitey is a total farce, i mean if thisis the type of player we are pinning our hopes on staying up then we are doomed, no dis-respect to Boetang but i really thought we would pick the pace up this week and sign some quality players because we HAD too, it's all desperate and the time is running out for us to get the quality we need not happy so far one bit tbh!

The club don't listen or give a toss until something appears on one of Fatty Faulkner's spread sheets. We only got rid of McLeish because season ticket renewals were over 10,000 down on what was expected, the fact that the team played *****e all season had no effect as Faulkner and Lerner couldn't analyse a Villa game perfomance with a Dummy's guide! Maybe some sort of boycott on refreshments in the ground and purchases in the club shop is required? Clutching at straws really but things only seem to happen at this place when a downward trending red line appears ona graph and they all scratch there heads! P.S calling Faulkner Fat isn't childish, it is merely a statement of fact!

Moussa Sissoko please. This guy hasn't played for anyone decent and would probably end up being another El Ahmidi (spelling).

villahippo. What do you know about journalism? Nursey is probably better informed than Kendrick. But you would know wouldnt you!
