Door Not Closed On Belhanda Deal?

Door Not Closed On Belhanda Deal?

If Villa have any interest in Montpellier's Younes Belhanda the sticking point could be the fee the club want for him.

Sky Sports are carrying quotes from the 23 year old midfielder who they say still interests Aston Villa, along with AC and Inter Milan and Galatasaray, and he has revealed the fee that this current club want to do business at:

'Nothing has been decided yet. My club wants (£12.5million) and not many teams can pay that.'

He continues to add that his preference remains England, but unless Montpellier reach agreement with somebody it's likely he will be seeing out his contract.

We've done well this year to tie up quick deals for targets and we haven't been overpaying on what appear to be reasonable sensible transfer fees (if that's not an oxymoron in today's transfer market) so if we do want Belhanda, the closer we go to deadline day will see Montpellier start to budge on the fee they want.

Or of course it could just be guff as given we have already signed a few midfielders this season, Lambert must be confident of shipping people out if he plans to add more competition to the position.

HHHhhhmmm. Belhanda. Surely he'll sign just for our persistence. However I think that this bird has flown. The renewed stories are only a precursor to his main targets. There will be others but this would have been nice.

I know what Mikes's doing CDX, he is sitting in that chair just like Sharon Stone did in that movie giving us a flash and a wink of hope, please let this be true we need a top player or two like this and we can really ruffle a few feathers in the premier league

I would actually love Villa to pull this off (or a similar talent). One, it makes a statement to the rest of the league "We are buying the best talent in Europe so watch out!". Two, it would be a marquee signing. As good as our other purchases are on paper, they are still unproven. A marquee signing settles the nerves. Three, it signals that Lerner is still willing to push for a top 6 spot and is willing to spend some money to do it. We have been reducing the wage bill for a number of years. It would be nice to see us buy top talent for once instead sell it on...

I think further deals like this will depend on if the club can move on bent and Ireland etc. Once there are off our wage list we can probably afford this kind of deal.

I see this as being a question of How much do we really want him? If we are genuinely interested then I see no reason why we wont sign him up, Only stumbling block would be a Champions League team coming in for him and it appears nobody is willing to pay his transfer fee from that bunch.
