Warnock Exit Now + Two Strikers Out In Summer?
Not one link inward, looks like the press have given up trying to guess.
However two links out.
The Guardian say that Villa will cut their losses and allow Stephen Warnock to leave on a free to West Ham.
We paid £7million for him from Blackburn in the 2009/10 season. He`s not been given a chance with the new manager, dropped to train with the kids. There might be behind the scenes reasons for this, if not, I can`t see why he wasn`t at least on the bench, not as if we have done any good this season and he does have top level international experience. He also did fairly well in midfield towards the end of last season which helped us stay up? He was a good player for us at one point, he then lost his way, but if Lambert is in the same mould as O`Neill (who Warnock did well under) then ....?
Anyway, that is what the report says. Best get the wages off our list if he isn`t being used.
Matt Law at The Mirror says that Christian Benteke is being eyed up by Tottenham, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City.
Makes sense, especially if we go down. He won`t feel he owes us any loyalty and won`t want to be in the Championship you wouldn`t think.
The report also says that Darren Bent is likely to leave in the summer.
Villa are apparently keeping an eye on Watford 24-year-old striker Troy Deeney.
