Di Matteo confirms Gana will be leaving for Everton, on a positive he also confirms Ayew going nowhere and has no release clause, brilliant news if they keep him, play him in position and not as a winger an buy a decent strike partner for him.

Good riddance, guzan. hope gabby klingon richards are going soon then all the poison gone then.

guzan gana and vertout all to be gone by end of weekend then up to 3 in by Sheffield Wednesday game. guzan and gana will go today and vertout I'd say Sunday.

Been seeing loads about Guzan to Middlesbrough and Gana to Everton, read from Gregg Evans even though Gana has a release clause of another team offer more than Everton we can still accept that offer so hopefully we start a bidding war and get closer to his market value. Also hope now this is the last of us losing player so cheap because of mistakes of the old regime, delph went for pennies and so will gana, then you see Jordan Ibe and Kante (similar stats to Gana last year) going for ridiculous money! Wyness seems much more adept to football matters!

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Jul 2016 11:13:48
Sorry but no bidding war will happen only on wages as a release clause is a release clause.

{Ed002's Note - It is best to ignore all of these clauses - they tend to cause a lot of confusion to media and fans alike.}

Agree0 Disagree3

29 Jul 2016 15:36:41
Gana's release clause expires in 2 days, does anyone know if because Everton have already activated it if personal terms and a medical an such extend past the deadline does that mean they no longer get the release clause and we can accept the highest bid?

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 12:21:46
Sorry ste76, a release clause means it allows him to speak to club, and if that offer isn't bettered we have to accept, however another club can better the offer, and we can accept this instead.
They could both offer same, then it is down to player.

Moyes pulls plug on Richards going to Sunderland.
Perhaps Moyes knows more about football than I thought.
Gutted.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

27 Jul 2016 23:09:40
I absolutely agree with that. If Moyes had signed him for £5million I would have celebrated all summer! Richards is never ever a premiership centre half, and
I'm truely amazed he ever thought he could be, he is quite Simply the worst example I have ever seen in a Villa shirt! Totally disillusioned and robbing a living
as a footballer.

Are we the only club in the country who continually insert low low buy out clauses into player contracts? A week after Liverpool get 15million for Jordan Ibe, we get 7 million for a player we paid 9 million for 12 months ago.

26 Jul 2016 20:59:02
Same i won't either mate didn't rate him at all.

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 21:22:34
Well can't be that bad if other clubs like him and want too buy him.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 21:26:03
I do rate him but if a player wants to go must be let go. only players who want to fight for the shirt must stay or arrive. I do think he will show he is a good player though.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 09:30:35
I think the low buy-out clause will have been activated by our relegation. Had we styed up, i'm sure there either wouldn't have been a cluase or the figure would have been higher at least.
Only another 6/ 7 players to get out now and then we can bring in 2/ 3 qualty signings and begin our glorious chmpionship wnning season.

Agree3 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 11:55:16
Woodsville55, Villa paid £6,5 million for Gana, not £9 million. Besides, Villa will get more than what they paid for him.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 13:42:16
Hmchmchl85 I don't know where you git 6.5m from. Sky sports suggested it was 9 million, transfer market say 7.6 m. The point I was making was that we spear to have had s policy of recruiting or contract renewals (Delph) which really undervalue the market value of players - giving the example of Liverpool getting 15 million for ibe.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 15:36:40
I'm pretty sure that's not our policy Woodsvilla.
You need to look at it in context. For several seasons we've been near the bottom of the table and not playing very well, which means that most of our better players will be undervalued.
We have now been relegated, again impacting the market value of our players and activating release clauses that many players have built into their contracts these days. It's a clause that gives lower achieving teams like Villa a chance of signing a 'hot prospect', so it works both ways to some degree.
The Delph case again should be treated in context. He nearly left for free whilst at the top of his game. The club did well to get anything for him.
I share your frustration mate, but to suggest its club policy is a little wide of the mark i'd suggest. Unfortunately it's just a reflection of our poor management and league performance over several seasons.

Villa linked with pantilimon what a great signing that would be.

I think it could happen as Bunn and Steer are not good enough.

I think steer is a more than adequate back up keeper. Ask any Huddersfield fan an they'll tell you that.

Agree1 Disagree0

Yea my mate or I should say work colleague because no noses are a friend of mine lol but said steer looked really good I think he needs time to play and mature then u never know.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

25 Jul 2016 14:56:33
alrite saying there going nobody wants them nor will they want to leave its like zogbia all over again! Iam amazed how our chairman thinks its as easy as telling them to go lol so inexperienced it's actually funny does he not know that we had about 5 or 6 players in the reserves for years before tell them all you like gabby is going no where his on good money an nobody wants him! FACTS! An lescot is to old same again great money nobody wants him.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 15:24:49
So the chairman can't pay up the remaining part of the above players comtracts then MR KNOW IT ALL?

Or am I staying the obvious.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 16:05:22
Careful villa_kenn he knows everything.

I'm sure he has enough business acumen behind him to know how to terminate a contract, football is just another business after all and cancelling a contract be it paying them off surely is the same what ever business you apply it to.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 16:09:21
Don't know why your saying the chairman thinks it's so easy, when he's been openly saying things like "it's not as simple as cancelling the contract" and "you have to find a buyer" seems like your talking negative rubbish.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 16:16:18
No because very much like Charles n'zogbia who declined to leave early and get his contract paid off its up to the player i think our chairman as already said this so the best he can do is put them on a free transfer an hope somebody comes in for them otherwise you are stuck with them like zogbia players don't have to leave if they don't want to there contracted if villa want to end that contract legally the Player has to agree aswel it works visa versa as well. Hence that's why we had so many players in the reserves under Martin O'Neill they all sat there an took there wages an didn't want to leave why should they villa put them on these contracts so they dnt have to leave if they don't wana. Technically Aston Villa are looking to break a contract it's the same as in the real world you can't do it unless you are mutually agreed! And the lesson today people careful what you sign for! Sorry for the long right up I am somewhat an expert in the legal terms!

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 16:51:32
You can pay up contracts, just is an expensive way of losing a player.
Sorry mr. know. nothing. positive, again you are wrong.

{Ed041's Note - If a player is sold I'm sure the contact has to be paid up anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 17:22:42
Firstly, mr know it all, Nzogbia is a bad example, because it was a different owner. Secondly, how can you say Dr Xia is inexperienced when he has made millions all before the age of 40. I'm sure he knows a thing or 2 about business. The guy has owned the club for a few months and he is already and inexperienced idiot in your eyes, i am speechless?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 jul 2016 18:10:57
look you can't just pay up a players contracts even xia knows this he has even said it on twitter you can only do it if the player mutual agrees villa ask zogbia an offered to pay it up he turned the chance down there for he sat out his contract villa couldn't do anythink iam not wrong at all that's not negative that's facts! villa will do there very best to force players out may even put them in reserves like before but can't break a contract and pay it up unless its agreed by both parties that's why people have contracts protects both parties! this is my job i know this so you are wrong! as for bein positive i will be when we have somethink to be positive about we got relegated rather pathetically with this rubbish we go every single week and lose the players quite openly are laughing at us fans. now we have the same team bar 3 players and you all think we are going to win the league you must be mad! what is positive about this squad it loses every week they mug us off and all they care about is money maybe if they brought good players an actually won a game people would be positive but sorry this squad is not positive it makes me sick what they done to us an what there still doing. what's is there to be happy about? 3 wins 38 games losing 6.0 at home how about going to wycombe and having them laugh in our face as they got on the coach iam not positive about these we need a whole new team not 3 players was you all not there last season? let me tell you now i was every game home and away and i was gutted for what they done to us i will never forgive them.

Agree0 Disagree2

25 Jul 2016 18:31:52
So in your opinion, you think we should replace our whole team again like last season? You don't think we have any quality in our current team? Do you think RDM and Clarke are also idiots.

The reason we got relegated is because Sherwood had no experience, Remi was also a terrible fit. We put the wrong players together with the moneyball approach. The players had nothing to play for, they knew the club was up for sale. We also had some terrible signings. Lescott and Richards should never have been signed.

I will not stop saying it but some of our players are very capable. Ayew, Amavi, Greaish, Traore, Gardner, Tshibolo, Gueye, Elphick, Lyden, Green, Clark, Baker, Hutton. We need some new signings but these players are not the reason we got relegated. There were many other reasons for that.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 18:44:00
You can pay off a contract, that is why there is a price on it.
Do your research before you post total rubbish, it's not hard, your in front of a computer or phone, using Google.
It happens more than you think.
As I said, it's expensive, not productive and a last resort. But yes you can.

Mr. know. it. all your first post said "I'm amazed our chairman thinks it's as easy as telling them to go lol" but since I've pointed out the owner has pointed out the problems with moving players on several times on Twitter, you have back tracked an changed what your saying so many times you know longer make sense, I think you should change your name to "mr. confused" stop tryin to look for any little thing to be negative about.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 19:22:49
No it's not all bad mate the attitudes of the players is the main thing Micah Richards Joleon Lescott won the Premier League with Man City all the players you have named have a bit of talent but the whole squad needs to be together aswel and it just simply isn't but we are lacking quality! i will never like any of the squad from last year for what they done to us they hurt my football team apart from alan hutton!

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 19:57:33
Gonna get pelters for this. KnowItAlls last post is 100% how every Villa fan feels, but it's not 'politically correct' to say it. At least he's got the balls to say it? got to give Dr Tony and RDM the chance to get it right though, I'm frustrated we haven't got more players in but I think it's going to go till the last hour of transfer deadline day

25 Jul 2016 19:57:58
And "I am somewhat an expert in the legal terms" come on, you pointed out that if you are under a 5 year contract and one person wants to end it prematurely you can't do it unless both parties agree, I think everyone on the planet can understand that.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 10:29:27
I agree with what your Saying Chris AVFC . But let's face it what villa player will not accept the termination of contract?

They are all mercineries who will say yes to a big one off payout and then a large signing on fee with the next club they sign for .

So actually what Xia is saying is correct as he can move them in pretty easy if we pay the mo way to do so . Lerner couldn't get them out as he didn't want to lay the money to get shot .

What gets me is the negativity by some in here to the new chairman and manager for not buying players on a whim . We have done that and got the t shirt over the last few seasons and look where we are now!

Mr know it all, just chopses off the same old rubbish every day . Negativity breed only one thing, and it isn't positivity.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 10:41:27
Totally agree villa_kenn rdm has been assessing the squad for their ability and attitude, the ability is there as someone has said some of these players have won the league. The attitude was not there and it takes time to assess this as people can put up a front.

I believe rdm knows who he want to keep and get rid of now and it's a case of getting a deal sorted to terminate the contract or find a buyer. He wants a smaller squad to manage the personalities better and get a close knit group.

I anticipate the signings will come in the next week or two with one being the markee signing everyone is crying out for.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 11:06:08
I think this is one of the only platforms where not only do people moan about the state of affairs at AV, but people actually moan about other people moaning. Let's get some positivity going on here.

My personal opinion is we have the right manager, some money to do business, an owner who communicates, some good backroom staff, I also believe we have a descent squad that wasn't used properly last season.

I don't echo the sentiment that just because we had a horrid season last year that all these players are muck and we should get rid of all of them, there are still descent players that can get us promoted if the team is set up properly.

Our youth are coming through and have the added benefit of starting in the championship and not the PL.

3 or 4 more descent signings, strikers and attacking MF, and we have a team that can definitely push for promotion if they gel, the core is there guys, you need to change your outlook.

A lot of lads on here are just wanting signings, signings and signings. Which I don't fully disagree with but if we break it down logically these are the positives.
1. Amavi back from injury is like a new signing.
2. We have signed a great captain.
3. A very talented young GK.
4. Tshibolo is a young talented power house which RDM will get the most out of
5. Loaning out Gil was a good move. He is talented yes, but he doesn't fit into our style and it can be tempting for a manager to tinker with the whole team to make him work.
6.Gardner has had a good year back from injury and will definitely help us this year.
7. Traore is a cracking player if he stays fit.
8. Ayew has plenty goals in him I reckon after having a full season of experience in the PL
9. I believe RDM will get the most outility of Grealish.
10. Gestede will score goals in the championship if we can deliver right. Which I believe Grealish and Traore will do.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 22:58:17
Agree with you on many points there
VillaSA, however we do need strikers in a hurry because let's remember they need time to gel, and understand the system. I
Think Traore and Grealish will terrorise. the Championship but think about how awesome Villa could be with two powerful strikers! that's why people are getting upset and sound negative. By the way Gestede isn't our Superman, if he scores more than 12 i will run naked through Birmingham! Not good enough at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 10:50:42
Yes Devlins, I am with you 100%, I would love one more top quality striker to play along with Ayew and keep Gestede as a squad player if we ever need to adjust to a long ball approach within a game.

chrisAVFC, i don't doubt he knows where the onion bag is, can't doubt his goal stats with ya, not sure the biggest 3 clubs all want him though, tonight i hear we're in a dog fight with leeds again for a striker called bammou, he's quicker, fitter and i think younger and cheaper, whether we get him i don't know, but rdm likes strikers to be mobile to create spaces, for all his qualities maybe the mac. might not suit that style, but there again, just for a change we're leaving a bit late in the day so maybe the mac. could end up at villa park after all!
