Aston Villa are prepared to bid 3m for Scott Sinclair and get Victor Moses in on loan

(5)
(4)

Your believing the tabliods again, and according to them Scott Sinclair is plan b if we miss out on moses

(1)
(3)

I read it was we are going for moses on loan and if that didn't happen villa will go for Sinclair

(1)
(1)

Why would we need two more wingers when we have grealish carruthers etc already though would take either alone

(0)
(4)

Why would we need both?

Rumours are circulating that Lazio are about to make an offer for Vlaar, the offer is expected to be around 7mil.
Also Middlesbrough are showing an interest in Lowton, not sure about how much.

I say JOG ON to Lazio.

His representative has said there is no truth in lazio talk, once again all paper talk, they said they were unwilling to spend 7million euros on him, he will meet the rest of the team Saturday let's just see what happens, please don't believe everything you read in papers. There is always speculation in villa signing players, however the only speculation on the 3 we have signed was when they were having their medicals!!!

I would not sell lowton to anyone. If lambert had of played him last season more he would have gone to the World Cup with England.

(4)
(6)

I believe the Lowton to Boro is a loan offer

(1)
(5)

Very polite.

Oldvillan

Lowton is not good enough!

You obviously didn't see him against chesterfield!
enough said.

(2)
(5)

I don't know whether your "Lowton for England" proclamation says more about your poor judgement of players or the state of the England team
It's probably a bit of both

Mendax

(5)
(2)

I would say at one time the season before people were talking about lowton to arsenal. Then he is late for training by 10 minutes and is dropped from the team. For me lowton is the best right back we have at the club and in a good defence would only get better. He came from Sheffield United so it is a big step up for him.

(5)
(2)

I've spent the last two years watching matt lowton play week in week out at VP, and maybe it was the previous year of watching alan hutton play but matt lowton is leagues past both hutton and bacuna in the wing back role. His crossing is now probably the best in the squad now Lambert has let albrighton leave, consistently a top performer from the team and yes he has defensive weaknesses but for a 24 year old he has a lot of potential as shown by arsenals interest in him after his first season. To let him go now would be a stupid as selling benteke to someone like Newcastle because his second season did not live up to his first. UTV

(3)
(1)

A couple of years ago one of the ED's stated that Lowton and Westwood would both play for England. So we all get it wrong.

Hi people villa have made a enquiry on scot sinclair

That's just tabloid talk

God Almighty!!!!

Want happen, Sinclaire will go to another team due to lack of fund

(5)
(0)

Is there ANYBODY on here who actually thinks signing HIM would be a good idea?? If there is - Give me strength!!
Clarrie blue.

(6)
(4)

Have just been listening to our defeat at Chesterfieldtonight. Admittedly a very much second string side put out by Lambert but Guzan played and saved us from a good thrashing.
No one on the night, other than possibly Grealish enhanced their chances of being given a chance this season. Very poor. Early days I know but if they want to put themselves forward for consideration for the first team, they should be doing better than that.
Clarrie blue.

(6)
(3)

Honestly, what happened to Lambert's strategy of signing youthful players??

(1)
(1)

Honestly, where've you been for the last 2 months.

brynner

(5)
(1)

What happened to the Moses deal how long does it take Jose to reply?

(2)
(1)

That's because it's all tabloid talk, the papers don't have a clue

(4)
(1)

Guzan didn't save us from a thrashing. I was there and he was at fault for their 1st and 3rd goals and his kicking was apaulling! I agree Grealish helped his chances but I also thought Janoi, Jores, Charlie and Callum Robinson also impressed a lot. Was a lot of positives from the Chesterfield game. Score doesn't matter

(2)
(2)

Moses is the nearest we will get to divine help.

Oldvillan

(2)
(1)

Whoever said that about Guzan is right he was well dodgy and lambert told him so apparently but villa have no better keepers and Guzan is capable of doing well as he got 12-13 save of th season

Talk about Villa wanting Moses is a smokescreen according to few people, Marko Marin is Lambert's target

(6)
(9)

I'd take them both. but think Marin is the better player.

(4)
(5)

Hopefully not i'd rather have Moses over Marin

(5)
(8)

Again, a midfielder who hardly ever scores a goal, we do not need.

According to tv it's actually atsu we're interested in and he's been given permission to speak to Everton as well as villa

Local newspaper is reporting villa after victor moses on a season loan, could be a quality move compared to senderos and cole
WARVILLIAN

(6)
(7)

Want happen with Everton sniffing around!

(3)
(3)

Everton can only loan 1 player from Chelsea and that looks like being atsu, so moses is up for grabs, West Bromwich are our main rivals for this signing, will be very welcome if lambo pulls it off

(4)

Everton want
Lukaku

They want to buy lukaku, and loan atsu

Lukaku tweeted about 'a new chapter' today does that mean he's joined everton

delighted to say that villa have 2 more players on the way but there's no truth in the moses loan. Told tom cleverly could be a option on loan

mike12345

(1)
(10)

Hahaha cleverly? Not even lambert is that dumb. Lambert has asked Chelsea if we can have moses on loan that's a fact.

{Ed003's Note - Could you register please}

And these two players are.

I heard that Roy and Lambert were looking at Danny Batth from the wolves. Not sure how concrete this is.

Either way he's a local lad and a childhood villa fan.

Don't mean to name drop but spoke to Charlie Nicholas again today. He said Lambert has be offer around the 20m mark 3 times off 3 different clubs recently For benteke. Apparently PL said he couldn't get a better striker for that amount of money. Thoughts? Fordy.

(2)
(9)

Um I don't think so as he won't pass a medical, it's a gamble to be honest

(5)
(0)

20 million for Benteke is a joke in todays market.
I know that sound s crazy but the football market is just that:Crazy
If we did sell him, I'd be disappointed with anything under £40, million

Mendax

(7)
(4)

Put it this way if Borini is worth £14m Bentekes at least £40m

The Villan

(6)
(4)

Players still pass medicals when they're injured, plus he's training again now anyway.
Also you're valuing benteke on his first season and possibly the first half of last season. Think we would have taken 20m if he continued to play the way he did during the second half of the season.
Having said that I want him to stay.

villacon

(4)
(2)

He's only very light training, and I'm sorry 20m you are having a laugh mate, I don't think villa would take that at all, I agree he's not worth 40m, but worth more than 20m!!

(2)
(1)

Benteke for me has the potential to be 1 of the best strikers in the world, The boy has everything, We need him more than the 20/30 million, PL won't sell him

(5)
(1)

He won't pass a medical cause he is injured? didn't we buy downing with a broken leg

(5)
(1)

Haha 30 million, you've got your head in the clouds

(2)
(3)

Pure and simple villa won't sell period

(3)
(3)

Of course Villa will sell if the right offer comes in.
Because the decision will be down to Benteke - players decide transfers nowadays, not the Board, not the manager and certainly not the fans.

Few clubs can afford to keep an unhappy player.

Something between 20 and 25 million would be about right
But don't forget the fee will be paid over 2 years - this is the norm for transfers between PL clubs

(0)
(0)

Benteke has been quoted today in one newspaper saying that he wants to stay and has no intention of leaving the club. let's hope this is correct.
Also we are about to offer Vlaar a new contract worth 10 million pounds over 4 years. Can we actually afford such a sum? Much as I want him to stay that seems a bit excessive to me. Any thoughts?

I know this is 'Rumour time' but I heard from a very close source of RL, that he's NOT selling AVFC! will keep you posted.

Villa Boy

(5)
(21)

He made statement saying he's had enough and wants out

(7)
(4)

I really doubt that. This is a silly post, why would someone publicly declare that the club is up for sale and then suddenly change his mind. makes no sense, his heart is not with villa anymore and he will sell villa just like he sold the browns years ago itsk
its going to happen it's matter of time. He's got many contacts soim sure won't be too hard to sell us sometime in the near future.

Don't post nonsense please.

AJ

(8)
(3)

I know he came out saying he wants to sell, but personally I think he has done a u-turn, since he came out saying 'talks were good but no bids have been made and that's he's going to focus on villa for the time being' there have been a few signings and the rumours have been flowing.

villacon

(1)
(8)

Well if he stays he should give lambert a proper war chest to compete

(12)
(1)

The only way I can see lerner staying is if someone buys into the club as shared ownership someone like arison for example. The only reason I feel he was giving up on the club is that he was seeing no returns for the money he's put in. I doubt he will stay even in this case but this is the only way I could see him making any sort of uturn. You must also remember that if there is anyone in the process of buying the club they may want it kept completely hush until the deal goes through a lot can change or go wrong with these types of deals. HAVE FAITH! We have a wonderful club and are due some good fortune. Dannybronx

(5)
(4)

It's not the case that he's NOT selling.
It's very much the case that he CAN'T sell

Mendax

(9)
(7)

Of course, it is possible for someone to change their mind.
How silly to think otherwise.

Lets be clear there: there is no sign of a buyer. I suspect what might have happened is that RL has steeled himself to continue to own the club for the foreseeable future.

Of course, Lambert needs to be given funds but the funds need to be on a sustainable basis ie what the club can afford and that doesn't mean that Lerner has to continually spend his own money

(3)
(0)

Mike Ashley is a prime example of an owner whom doesn't know if he should sell or not. I think it's 3times he's done that.

(2)

Football (soccer) is a growing sport in the states, with the MLS! Its only amtter of time before the deal is finalised!
Stop making silly negative remarks, when clearly there is no truth in your rumours.

So apparently spurs are going to make an offer of Dawson and holtby+cash for vlaar!

I'm thinking this would be a good move for us! UTV

(23)
(9)

Too many rumours on here! seems like everybody is writing what they want and not what is actually true.
Does anyone really think the club is going to be sold? Heard about the 1st Aug on about 40 different occasions, and it's getting very boring now.
Why not just wait and see what really happens! Who do you honestly think wants to buy a club in this sort of turmoil? I have been a fan of AV for 27 years and never seen things so bad.
If anything does happen with the sale PL need to be the first to go, that's for sure! WORST AV manager I can remember by a long long way.
Sorry but no good for this club!
Thoughts welcome!

(9)
(19)

Very good move if it happens, let's get it rolling

(6)
(7)

I'd take it, also levy would send a couple loans to, so interesting rumour definitely the best deal we could get if vlaar went

(8)
(8)

Um mate you missed out Alex mccleash now there is the worst manager this club has had EVER!!! Lambert has done a damn good job with what he had at his disposal

(21)
(7)

To the above post.
"Well it is a rumours site mate"
If we all waited to see what happens it would be pointless having a Rumours and Banter site.
All of this seculation make for good reading and at times it makes you laugh.
We have had worse managers than PL mate, look back a bit and see.

Villadave

(13)
(3)

Lambo has not been that bad, a few bad buys but o'neil made worst buys and wasted a lot of money on crap signings and still getting them off the books, that's what put us in such bad shape

hightower

(9)
(7)

You forgot Graham Turner and Billy McNeil! Worse managers than PL.

(10)
(6)

Dr Joseph Venglos
I need say no more

(12)
(7)

We could argue all night about whether he is "thee" worst but let's face it, he's up there

Mendax

(4)
(9)

I would say O'neil must be up there with the worst. Had £80mil to spend, a lot of money at the time and squandered it by selling off the cream of our youth policy and buying replacements no better than the kids at inflated prices and with inflated wages that drained Villa for years

(11)
(9)

If you have supported villa for 27 years and think PL us the worst manager, you have a very very very short memory. Venglos, Gregory, O'Leary, McLeish etc etc. PL has done a decent job given the resources he has been given, and the comparative spending power of other teams (west brom gave spent £10m on one player for crying out loud). Also if anyone thinks Spurs are going to give us holtby, Dawson AND cash for Vlaar, who has only 12 months on his contract, you must living on another planet

(13)
(5)

If Holtby an Dawson in a swap for Vlaar is true let's get this deal done quick!

There isn't much in Dawson an Vlaar's ability, both as good as each other, both can make mistakes, both can have dominating performances on their best days, but Holtby is quality!

We'd be robbing them blind, hope this rumour is true.

>Scg87

(11)
(6)

It was a mere tabloid rumour and it said or and not and. Honestly expect some pathetic offers to come in to force our hand and them maybe 5m leaving us with senderos, baker, Clarke and okore as centre backs, I for one am very worried about next season.

(6)
(3)

I read it was spurs loaning us them not us having them permanent.

(1)
(1)

If you care to look back, this season is the lowest points tally AV have had since 1970, and you some of you persons are sitting here typing things like Martin O'neill was a worse manager than PL. Get a Grip!
I understand you want to try and remain positive, as do I, but look at the reality. I appreciate it is a rumour site, but it takes an individual with a very boring life to sit and make thing up just for the sake of it. You will see who they are with the negative responses to this post. Show yourselves losers!

(5)
(10)

Well when you post something please get it right, as the points we got this season matched what we got 2 seasons ago under AM, and you said since 1970 however in 1986/7 season we had 36 points from 42 games, um I'm pretty sure that's less from more games

(7)
(0)

1970 was 2 points for a win so you can't really compare them

I agree about PL rubbish manager, but some of the rumors make me laugh, and I love the site

Pl was bought in to do a job for aston villa which he has done for 2 seasons on a budget! up to now he has spent 40 mil in this being his fifth window!
he has to manage a club with instructions and limits! not a easy task,
and one which I think no one else would do! I give props to lambert and I hope this season he alongside keane get us flying!


up the villa!!!

It seems Lambert is looking to bring in two more players before the season begins.
One of them might be Ki -- no thanks one snub would be more than enough for me, thanks.

Apparently watchers of YouTube dallas tv saw Randy Lerner alongside Larry Ellison's representative at the game last night.

Further investigations have revealed that it's Randy Lerner first appearance at an villa game in 18months, the main reason is a sales exercise which would allow potential buyers to take a firsthand look at the squad whilst avoiding the European press hysteria.

Feedback so far. Club Structure -Brilliant, League Potential- Uncertain, Squad Potential - Average, Initial investment Required by new owner- £30 -40mill, Management - Replaceable {Klinsman}, Pre sale investment promised by RL- £15-20mill, Loan players spoken about =Deeny, Atsu, Campbell, Omar, Zaha

(8)
(14)

Its micky arison and his wife, I think things are happening and an announcement is coming. months back many people said 1st august, getting close

(8)
(3)

I hate to be negative but that sounds like a made up fantasy, Klinsman would never manage Villa and the possible loans are players who have had minimal linkage in the past weeks

(5)
(8)

I think clutching at straws people, as much as I'd like to be true they were probably just friends of randy's nothing else

(4)
(4)

Arison is in Italy on vacation, sorry guys your way wide of the mark

(4)
(5)

Business people, especially at Larry Ellison level, are never on holiday as we "ordinary" people view them. It would be right and proper his top representative would take his place at the match anyway, that's his job. What is interesting is Learner was there with him which, hopefully, means he still has some good will to Villa

(5)
(2)

What is any of that based on? Complete rubbish. Btw, any multiple billionaire who buys a middle to low ranking PL side has no interest in the quality of the current playing staff. If the purchaser is even remotely serious they would all be gone within 12 months anyway

(4)
(1)

There are pictures of a guy shaking hands with Lerner outside the stadium, an them pictures do look like Micky Arison, an anyone who has seen Arison will know he's got a distinctive appearance, certainly looks like him to me.

I did watch the Villa Dallas game but I don't remember the camera pointed at where Lerner was sitting during the game

I have heard we are looking at Evian midfielder Daniel Wass.
He is a Danish international and signed from Benfica in 2012, following a loan spell.
He has two years left on his current deal at Evian and is believed to be keen on a Premier League move to enhance his international career.
Apparently Evian are resigned to losing Wass and offers of around £3million might be enough.
It stated he was a fullback but has since reverted to midfield and scored 9 in 38!

villadave

(5)

I have read this report to, not to keen to be fair, was hoping for ki, but he is waiting for a better offer, that will prop not come, ah well his loss, good news to here the mighty Delph wants to stay, and fair play to lambert for sticking to his guns regarding vlaar, I do hate manager declaring interest in players, that's what Benitez did with Barry, it just unsettles them.

(7)
(0)

Have now seen that spurs are in for vlaar, however this is by far the more interesting as reports suggest they are willing to offer holtby, Dawson, cash and possibly a loan signing to, not sure how true as it's from the mirror, but it's a good offer if true

(10)
(4)

If that deal is true and goes through, it could be the best thing to happen to us this seasson.

Have to agree here if this deal does happen, as much as I'd be gutted to see vlaar go, Holtby and Dawson would be worth it,

Arsenal striker Joel campbell has been shortlisted for a possible season long loan deal along with Chelsea starlet atsu

Finch

(12)
(7)

100% need some width with quality to beat a player.

Any ideas when Benteke is back?

(4)
(4)

Both of those signings would be excellent if we could get them but unfortunately I just can't see it happening in either case. Too many other sides would be interested in taking them both on loan, several of them seen as more attractive than we are currently, though I hate to admit it.
Clarrie blue

(9)

Loan players are sent to clubs that they feel would benefit the club and the player.

Arsenal and Chelsea obviously want their players to be playing week in week out. Sending players to Belguim and Greece will not get the players ready for the EPL.

People need to be aware that players get sent to clubs that play similar to their parent club. Before people jump on this I'm not saying Villa player the same as Arsenal and Chelsea.

I ask, why wouldn't we get players like that on loan?

Too much negativity going on here. It might be time to start getting the violins out. It is what it is.

(9)
(5)

To be fair I think we could possibly get one of them because I think we could give them more games then other teams, and they would be one of our main players whipping the crosses in

Want happen, anybody no what's happening with takeover

I would rather have grealish and carruthers play then get some other from another club to give experience too,
i also believe they have better potential then albrighton, so why get in others to stun there growth! we needed experience and we have that with the bomb squad re introduced and also cole sendros richardson, I think our squad is not to far away from being completed.

Anthony knockaert for leicester city will show what a quality player he is in the prem this season, would be just the kind of player villa need as he can play in hole and on either wing.

Wondering if any rumours on Tonev. Not in squad for the tour of America.

villaborn59

(8)
(1)

Going to be off loaded due to crapness

(16)
(4)

Tonev was going to be on the flight under one condition. Due to cuts in spending randy asked Tonev to earn his flight by finding at least ten match balls that he shot out of villa park last season whilst attempting long shots from 40 years.

(19)
(2)

While I am no great fan of either Tonev or Luna, not two of our more inspired signings, I do think that the way the club appears to be treating them both shows that the stubborn Lambert never learns anything. He is doing the same with these two as he previously did with the 'bomb squad' and he has ended up eating humble pie there. No player deserves to be treated the way he treats them. I'll bet no one treated him like that in his playing days.

Totally agree, any other business HR and the unions would have done something about it. Respect is a two way street.

Bent, benteke, kozak, wieman, gabby, robinson. Why would we need a striker worse then all of them?

With all due respect, although I would be the first to agree that Ameobi is no Pele he IS considerably more talented than some of the players on that list of yours.

Lambert said to be looking at Mohamed Salah on a loan if possible, apparently there is some truth in the Ashly Young rumour too, second choice loan if Salah isn't available??

(8)
(18)

Salah will probably be going back to egypt for national service, so doubt it very much

(11)
(6)

Salah might be going back 2 his country if he gets called up 2 the military!!

(6)
(6)

Mohammed Salah would be o. k. but still don't think Young coming back is a good idea. He left under a cloud and there are too many supporters who can't stand the sight of him.
Clarrie.

(6)
(11)

Looks as though Salah is likely to be called back to Egypt to complete his national service according to todays news reports, so our chances of signing him on loan have just receded several degrees.
Bring on the next implausible rumour someone - where are you when we really need you, Kingvilla?
Clarrie.

(2)
(10)

Well, I did ask for the latest implausible rumour and on another posting site for Villa I've just seen someone say that Southampton are to offer 2 million for Vlaar. It gets worse, it really does.
Some of these people want their bumps feeling.
Clarrie.

(3)
(3)

Lets be honest, every club with any sense will be looking at Vlaar. PL or whoever should stick a value on him that reflects his performance at the W/Cup. Some players are moving for amazing sums so what is Vlaar worth? To us £20/30m as without him we are in the sh--. So do we let him go if an offer comes in somewhere near these figures or will PL sweet talk him as he did Benteke last year at a similar time.
With Okores and Vlaar together at the back and possibly Splenderous as a back 3 we would have a strong defence. Many of the best at W/Cup played a solid 3 and if PL went this way the lack of quality full backs would be a bit negated especially as Hutton now seems to be willing to pull his finger out if reports are true.

Oldvillan

(8)
(4)

What worries me most is that a club like Southampton thinks that they have got a chance of signing our best players. Shows where our standing in football has sunk too!!

(12)
(1)

I agree here, yeah he he's 1 year left on his contract, but his World Cup performance elevated his stock 25m I'd say, especially as luis had a howling tournament and went for 50m. Hutton made a real difference the other night as well

There is no way anyone would pay more than £8-10 million max for vlaar with only a year left on his contract. And that's being generous. I personally think his World Cup performances have been way hyped up - the Argentina game aside (where he was truly excellent) I didn't think he particularly stood out. in the group stages especially he gave the ball away cheaply and didn't look very assured. Anyone thinking we can get £20 million for him are living on another planet. I think he is important to us however, and by all means let's slap a hefty price tag on him to scare people off. But if anyone is serious about cashing in on him at this point, then we will only be looking at a relatively small fee. He's not that young anymore also remember. I've said elsewhere that he'd be a reliable, cheapish option for other teams right now. He's not going to generate a massive transfer fee.

Salah is not having to carry out national service and mourinho has plans for him this season.

Vlaar to Southampton has been picked up by various media sources as well as the local Southampton papers. Louven deal to go through by Friday

Costa was nowhere near match fit. Did nothing in any of the games he played and didn't need taking out of the game. Any half decent defender wouldve kept him quiet.

Why is it, that every year we worry about losing players with just one year left on their contracts? this happens too often, players like delphy 's contacts are a priority that could be avoided by signing players on reasonable timespans

The Ki deal is dead in the water apparently, sources say Lambert pulled the plug when Ki wanted to see what other offers are on the table, Lambert has a reputation of not putting up with non-fully committed players, good news is money is available for the right players, hearing alternatives are lined up in Vullnet Basha and Valon Berisha

It's o. k. I've looked them up now - two totally unknown midfielders, one Albanian and one Norwegian with no sort of pedigree to speak of.

Not true, this was a rumour in a Newcastle paper, no truth in it at all

Yes, there is truth in this rumour. Newcastle made an enquiry about Benteke but have been rebuffed.

Not a hope in hell
More delusions of grandeur from Geordie media no doubt

(12)

Would anyone be tempted to take £20m for Benteke right now?
Rather than potentially waiting until Jan for him to be back playing.

Think I'd take £20m for Benteke now an use that money on 2 quality buys eg Holtby Caulker.

Whether or not we could find some sucker to pay £20m for an injured player could be tricky.

>Scg87

Have I blinked today and missed a couple of signings?
Sky Sport have just put up a list of Premier League clubs and how many new signings they have made in this window so far and against Villa's name is the figure 5.

Also, if Ki is stalling on signing in case bigger so called clubs may come in for him tell him to p*ss off.

Benteke rumoured to be interested in move to liverpool with a fee around the region of £15m-£20m, as brendan rogers doesn't want to go through with the origi move as he is the same player as benteke an with villas latest situation he sees it as an easy buy RL to cash in on his prized assets to get some money back he's invested into the club
kingvilla

(3)

Origi is on his way to Boston for medical with Liverpool, before rejoining lille on years loan, sorry kingvilla wrong again

(5)
(2)

Mendax,
No club wanted to pay £25m for benteke when he was fully fit and playing great football (12months ago) so would they pay £30m-£40m, which i'm guessing is your thinking, I don't think so.

I do think £20m for Benteke would be best for us right now, providing we can sign 2 quality players with that money.

Benteke out until jan? No guarantee he'll perform when he does come back, or 2 quality buys now who can make a massive difference between now an January, like I said, I'd be very tempted to take it an move on.

>Scg87

(5)
(3)

Benteke is light trainings USA with squad, expect him back sooner than Jan, more end Sept to early October, also origi is to have Liverpool medical, and me loaned back to lille

(3)
(3)

If Benteke comes back before Xmas with an achiles rupture then he's a break down waiting to happen, if we rush him back we're throwing £20m down the crapper.

Zog had the same injury, how long has he been out? A lot longer than 4 months me thinks.

Villa fans the time as come! We are going to be taken over in the forth coming day's! I have been told this by a very important person in the football industry

Hopefully mate

Where did you hear this from at the villa

(5)
(6)

Not possible. Villa going to the USA today.

(8)
(11)

Um how does villa going to USA stop a takeover please tell me

(7)
(4)

Maybe coincides with the us tour in texas.
Lerner, the buyers are all based in the US!

(5)
(4)

What difference does Villa going to America today stop a potential sale?

Think what your writing!

(7)
(2)

There is no one ready to buy the club. Even if there is a prospective buyer, due diligence will take months to complete.

Lerner is not expecting any purchase to be complete before the start of next season, which is why he is exercising more control than previously.

(5)
(5)

Lerner is exercising more control because Paul faulker is no longer here and there's only a finance officer who is temporary!

(3)
(3)

You say it will take months but the club has been up for sale for abit now. Lerner has never once said there is no interest in fact he said quite the opposite his words if I remember where talks have been productive and ongoing. So what does that tell you? I personally am quite optimistic that there is method to all the madness and we will see positive outcomes pretty soon. Dannybronx

(3)
(3)

There a constant talks with potential buyers, that a progressing well, but that's as far as lerners let on, and he had the step up as faulkner had told him he was leaving before he did

(2)
(2)

Incorrect.

There have been prospective buyers but no one has progressed beyond discussions.

No one has initiated due diligence. So even if someone starts this process now, it will take months.

Lerner is expecting to remain in charge until next summer.

Even if someone steps forward, starts the process, Lerner does not want to cause disruption by selling in the midle of next season.

So: there is no buyer, no one has started due diligence and villa will remain Lerners for the next 12 months.

(4)
(4)

Keep telling your self that bud, there are and still are talks going on with Lerner and buyers, he doesn't need to run this by you or anyone this is his club, and only his, but it's not like when Ellis sold the club and had to announce it, we are private now, for all we know takeover could happen tomorrow next week or next year

(5)
(1)

Well you seem to be in the know. How do you know all of this information? And even if we aren't taken over. Provided our players stay fit I can't see us having a problem next season. We was without key players last season okore, vlaar for a stint, nzogbia, benteke, Kozak who might I add I thought was playing pretty well before he got injured. Gabby was out for abit too.

(5)

Now that I agree, we do have a strong team when fit

Roma interested in vlaar.5 mil!

(14)

Vlaar is defiantly worth more than £5 million. At least £10million. And for Hutton if we get some money for him I will be happy. Hutton is a shocking player.

Cjr

(7)
(10)

Vlaar would be worth more than 5mil. if he had more than 12 months left on his contract. As it is, clubs know they could perhaps get him on the cheap side now while he's still yet to sign an extension. He's going to be viewed as a very reliable and more importantly, cheap option for many clubs now his profile has been heightened in the World Cup.

Lovespud

(5)

Vlaar's going nowhere club captain and unbelievably loyal.

(12)
(7)

I hope you are right

(8)

Is that why he left feyenord for a bigger challenge. Players that seem loyal aren't always if a bigger challenge comes his way like a chance to play champions league with a top team like Roma or Man U we will be introuble

(6)
(2)

I have to concur witht the above. If Roma come calling with the offere of Champions Leagure football and to play in one of the worlds most decorated cities then it would defo be a head turner. Plus Manchester United are Manchester United and sell themselves.

While I would be gutted to see him go (more so because what we would be left with) I would not hold a grudge if he left to play at a better standard and finish his career with the chance of trophies and european football

Ki seung yeung almost a done deal.

(6)

Once again we lose one of our unwanted players on a season long loan which now makes two players on loan that we were trying to get money in for to spend on new players. I find it all totally mystifying but then what do I know - I'm not Paul Lambert.
Add this to the nonsense with Hutton and Albion and heaven knows what is going on.
Clarrie blue.

Even if we did sell them we would get pittance for them so at least its wages freed up

Distant Villain

(6)
(3)

Is it just me or has there been a systematic ignorance of the quality and age of player be linked here or brought in? albeit a club in a sale transitional period or not.

The only way Lerner can prove his statement that he returned in the interim to focus on Villa, is to invest in Young Quality players that will improve the team, without costing a fortune to preserve his asset pre-sale which the whispers are that the sale is closer that we think.

Before some of you slate my suggestion of of young quality, rem we have experience in abundance, if you doubt me look at our current squad including Cole/Richardson/Senderos to name a few. and one of these Joe is actually not bad but also not 22.

It's terribly sad that Lerner abandoned his faith in the young way forward thinking of Lambert, the idea was right the execution wrong which was totally based on the standard of players purchased, Lambert got all but 2 BigBen/Bacuna wrong.


In any other club he would have been sacked, however there is a bit of gratitude as he could have walked during this summer of disarray.

Now he has to get more importantly the quality spot on, every player that comes in now has to be better than the player in that position by a mile even if they are loans,

Defour/Kiyatoke/Atsu/Diaby/Abdularaham/Wellbeck/Zaha/Joe Cambell.

The options are endless even in our dire financial position, but the question is has "Last Legs" Lambert learnt his lesson and gets in quality additions loans or buys.

Outs-Hutton/Luna/Sylla/Luna/Bent/Gabby/Given/Karim/Herd/Nzogbia

(3)
(9)

I think that Cambiasso would be our best signing so far, if his wage demands aren't too high for Villa, as he was earning at least £130k per week when he was at Inter.

If Lambert fails to sign Cambiasso, then I think that he should try to sign either Defour or Parker.

Both Cambiasso and Defour are natural defensive midfielders. Parker is a natural central midfielder, but can play well as a defensive midfielder.

All three are very hard working players, and I would be glad of signing anyone of them. Any thoughts, lads?

Defour again? this rubbish keeps getting posted, get real, its not going to happen and never was

We've got quality young players coming through the youth system! Look at Grealish, Gardner, Robinson, Burke, Carruthers, Johnson, Donacien etc. Players like these won us the next gen series. We need some experienced players to come In around them and let them learn from them.

Apparently Lambert is close to signing an experienced CDM, should be announced by Monday. Who could is be? Scott Parker after already raiding Fulham for Richardson. Parker was by far Fulhams most important player last season. Rodwell has limited experience but also youth. Personally not that best option as we need a physical ball winner who isn't blessed with injury every other week.

(4)
(12)

Would be surprised if Parker left London, and think Rodwell would be a fantastic signing, we must have some cash to spend surely?

(9)
(7)

We have a reported 10m to spend including wages, would like to see Defour from Porto, he would allow delph to play a more attacking role as he would sit next to Westwood. Realistic.

(6)
(10)

Maybe ki from Swansea would be a good CDM for villa

(13)
(10)

Well if it is 10m including wages then it is all spent.
No fees for the three players but if they are all given 25k per week on 2 year deals then we have spent almost 8m on the three, perhaps they might get a game before we get relegated.

(6)
(10)

M'bia is the midfielder, ne fee required, had a good solid season for Sevilla, would be very welcome signing, as have the rest of them

(4)
(7)

Deduct the savings that have and are being made and you still have your £10 million

(4)
(6)

I would say wages only count per season so its not all spent plus if they get some off the books it will be off set

hightower

(4)
(3)

I'd like the look of M'Bia, he played well at Sevilla during their UEFA Cup win. Bit of bit and power in the midfield.

(6)
(4)

We need at least 2 midfielders in my opinion, certainly player like ki would be ideal especially as last season we just couldn't keep the ball or string any passes together. Ki would be really useful!
Finch

(5)
(3)

I see a majority disagreed with my comment as to the ten million having been mostly spent. Football fans can be one eyed but to disagree with plain and simple maths?!

So even presuming another 10 m has been shaved off the liabilities on the balance sheet, then Ki for 4m fee on a three year deal on 30k per week that totals 8.6m excluding agents fees bonuses sign on feed etc etc.

Clubs are businesses nowadays especially those for sale. When these spending promises come out to fans they are genuine but they are not a contract so you cannot check the small print to see whether it says 10m in transfer fees will be spent this summer.

11 Jul 2014 14:06:01
Some rumours today that Villa may be looking to put a bid in for Ki from Swansea (on loan at Sunderland last season) - reports vary of a bid anything from 2m to 6.5m - and 'apparently' not on a huge wage (after Celtic and Swansea) and therefore may fit our budget

Not sure how much credence to give to this rumour although I do rate him as a ball playing midfielder who can score goals

Hughes

(5)
(11)

I have heard this rumour too. He is a very decent player and can play the ball out from the back. And has the strength. Another rumour that might be interesting is Stephane M'Bia the former QPR man.

Cjr

(1)
(7)

"reports vary of a bid anything from 2m to 6.5m"

Rules the Villa out.

There is nowhere near like that amount to spend on transfers.

There is no sign of a buyer. Even if there was someone, due diligence would take months to complete.

Its possible that Lambert might persuade Lerner to release some more funds but given that Lambert is clearly trying to offload players to raise funds, this is unlikely.

I am no Lerner hater - he has invested more than enough money nor am I a Lambert hater but its going to be a tough ride.

(9)
(7)

I'm not sure where any of this money from player sales is going to come from. Everyone who has left us so far, of the players Lambert is looking to offload, are going out on loans - so far Helenius and Sylla.
