Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

I was talking to a good friend of mine who is a rabid Spurs fan, he has heard a rumour that we have enquired about Sessegnon on loan with an option to buy. If true I think this would be a great signing as he can play left back or wide left which would give us options as we could move Jack inside or provide some real competition for Targett. However given the paper talk about Barkley and Loftus Cheek it might just be nonsense but if it is true even if it doesn't happen at least it shows we are targeting some real quality and you can see that the transfer policy is in line with the board's stated strategic intent and it's been a long time since we could say that.

Would love this one. We 100 percent need another LB target is ok but feel we need another quality LB to push him or replace him.

24 Sep 2020 12:30:30
This would be good news, however I'm so sorry that your friend has rabies. Make sure he see a doctor. 🤣🤣🤣.

24 Sep 2020 13:21:32
Sessegnon would make sense as he played for Fulham and Villa are doing a Fulham.

24 Sep 2020 14:47:02
Um pretty sure we didn't as we stayed up. Only count for the 1st season I would believe.

24 Sep 2020 14:51:32
I would love to see us sign Sessegnon and Barkley on loans with options to buy. Get Rashica, and then go after Mepham. That’s a strong squad.

24 Sep 2020 15:47:20
Can only sign one loan from a premier league club so it’s one or the other we can’t have both.

24 Sep 2020 18:53:46
I appreciate your joke if nobody else does RHLT 🤣🤣🤣.

24 Sep 2020 18:57:40
I thought you could only have one player from a club (so it’s Barkley OR Loftus-Cheek) . but we could get another loan from Spurs? Or is it one PL loan total?

24 Sep 2020 19:59:55
No it’s only one loan from a premier league club so if we take Barkley that’s it.

24 Sep 2020 20:29:07
Cheers Villadave.

24 Sep 2020 20:44:25
Apologies RHLT I missed it I was away foaming at the mouth when it landed 😬.

24 Sep 2020 21:05:17
I thought it was 2 loans but only one from each team.
Ed’s please clarify.

{Ed001's Note - I believe you are correct.}

24 Sep 2020 23:03:06
Guys if I am wrong I apologise . I have checked the rules and it does say you can have 2 loans but I can’t find a specific reference to the number from other premier league clubs other than you can’t have 2 from the same club, (maybe I am not looking in the right place) But I can’t see over the last couple of years any premier league club loaning more than one player from another premier league clubs, which I accept of itself doesn’t prove my point but I would have thought if it were possible some of the smaller clubs that were promoted like Norwich, Fulham for example would have taken advantage of that possibility if it were available to them.

25 Sep 2020 00:53:02
Sessegnon is due to sign for Brighton on loan according to Jimmy McCann on Twitter.

25 Sep 2020 09:23:25
Didn’t derby have Wilson and mount from Liverpool and Chelsea the year we came up.

25 Sep 2020 09:40:57
They did Whackattack but I thought the rule only applied with loans between premiership clubs.

25 Sep 2020 09:58:52
Just done some further research and all say 2 loans can be had. Trouble is they don’t distinguish between leagues.

25 Sep 2020 14:02:19
We need to get to the bottom of this 1 lol, I knew u could only have 1 player loaned from a particular club I didn’t realise there was a cap of amount of loans but I’m not really in the know on these things, maybe walkies can ask his “in the know” connections to clear it up for us😂😂.

25 Sep 2020 14:39:53
Copied and pasted from the Premier League:
There are restrictions on how many players Premier League clubs can loan from other Premier League/ English clubs.

They are:
- Premier League clubs may not register more than two players on loan at any one time.
- The maximum number of loans registrable in the same season is four, and, under no circumstances, shall more than one be from the same club at any one time.
- Premier League clubs cannot loan to another Premier League club a player they have acquired in the same transfer window.
- A Premier League club may loan not more than one of its goalkeepers to another Premier League club.

25 Sep 2020 16:05:01
Yes, different rules for the premier league, think its still 5 in the championship but that no longer applies to us 😁.

25 Sep 2020 16:34:11
So Moose as I said 2 loans are available to us.

25 Sep 2020 16:56:43
Sorry guys it might just be me but I am still not clear does 2 loans mean we can loan 2 premier league players from 2 separate premier league clubs?

25 Sep 2020 21:23:44
Yep that’s it mate.

23 Sep 2020 23:24:33
Gabby tweeted that we are in for a surprise tomz but then said his said to much an deleted the tweet.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2020 10:24:34
I hope we haven’t re-signed him 😂.

24 Sep 2020 10:36:54
Na was the 3rd kit release ha ha.

24 Sep 2020 10:47:48
Haven't you heard walkies, he's coming back for 1 more season, but only if his vertigo doesn't flare up again.

23 Sep 2020 22:35:49
#avfc consider loan move for Chelsea's Ross Barkley as Dean Smith targets a "No 8". Ruben Loftus-Cheek a possible alternative option #cfc - John Percy latest. Couple this with Alan Nixon posting earlier that we have significant funds put aside for a new central midfielder and striker/ winger.

From this I take the plan is to keep Jack out wide, and sign a new central mid that puts Hourihane on the bench. I like Loftus Cheek, but Barkley would be a massive signing. Add to that a winger for the right hand side and Traore to push for a starting place/ rotate and we have a very strong first 11.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 23:05:19
Barkley is a good player on his day. The only problem is that he only has a good day once in every 4 games. And he is always suffering from little niggles. I'd much rather we go for Guendouzi from Arsenal.

24 Sep 2020 00:26:22
Guendouzi good young player, but at times can be a bit of a loose cannon .

24 Sep 2020 09:31:36
Wouldn’t touch Guendouzi with a barge pole, proved he was a good player in a decent arsenal team at times but attitude is horrendous. Saw it first when we played them in the 3-2 last year, when the third went in he didn’t care about celebrating with his team mates, his first thought was to run over to our bench screaming and gesturing at John Terry “we’re in your head”. Then the Brighton saga, constantly asking players “how much you get paid” etc. Bloke is a waste of space and the sort of character we’ve spent a long time driving out of our club.

Barkleys character off the field has been questions on occasion, more his partying than anything but he’s 100% an upgrade and would slot straight into our midfield three, plus he’s proven at mid table level with Everton and has is a regular 7/ 10 for Chelsea.

Ruben Loftus Cheek the only issue is his injury record, again I think he replaces hourihane without question, when fit however.

So both carry risk but so does every transfer, no risk no reward.

24 Sep 2020 09:58:06
I would go for either player and believe they would be good for us.

24 Sep 2020 10:49:17
Don't you boys fancy drinkwater for another season? I'm shocked!

24 Sep 2020 11:00:22
100 percent I'd take either of them if we can get them.

25 Sep 2020 01:15:25
If I were a betting man, I would err towards Loftus-Cheek being the more likely signing. However, he seems to have whetted the appetite of many with reports of up to eight clubs pursuing his loan.

23 Sep 2020 17:10:12
Can anybody else tell me if they have heard sarr on loan with option to buy for 35m? Would be amazing if this is right.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 17:30:28
Plenty of rumours but not seen any about a loan. Would be very surprised if Watford went for that without at least an obligation to buy and a loan fee.
Would love to be surprised but suspect this rumour is an agent trying to fuel the fire to get his clients wage/ deal up having seen Villa splashing the cash.

25 Sep 2020 01:08:23
I think the Sarr rumour began via a French source.

He would be a good signing, although almost double the fee of most of the alternative wide men we have looked at.

23 Sep 2020 16:39:20
Reports from Spain we are interested in Mallorca striker Ante Budimir for £13m.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 17:14:13
Not sure I understand this one, he doesn’t fit the age profile of what we are supposedly looking for and his goals to games ratio isn’t that great probably why the fee is relatively low for a striker these days, I can’t help wondering if he is another Borja?

23 Sep 2020 17:34:45
Agreed Villajohn, can't see Villa spending that amount on someone like him. Having spent as much as we have already I can only see them getting older players in if they are quality and cheap (at least fee wise) to boost quality for a season or two. Only serious money will be spent on younger players now inline with the recruitment strategy and player profile already stated by Purslow.

25 Sep 2020 01:12:11
I can see Lange and Smith raising reserve options if their chosen negotiations go awry. If there is any truth in this one, I would imagine it falls into that back up category.

We must make enquiries for plenty during the window with only a fraction ever developing into deals.

23 Sep 2020 15:32:30
I been told Niang available from Ac Milan he quick and a decent finisher.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 10:34:21
Samatta off on loan to Fenerbahce by the sounds of it. Risky imo given that Wesley won't be fit until January. Perhaps this heralds the arrival of another striker? 🤞.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 16:47:49
Not according to his father.

23 Sep 2020 10:29:48
Anyone know what's happening with Freddie? There was some talk about us selling him and he didn't play Monday. Shame if we do.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 12:34:04
I think the cup tomorrow, will perhaps give us a clue, see who Deano plays .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

23 Sep 2020 16:00:50
I read on Birmingham Mail website that Elmo was ahead of him in the pecking order and they expected Elmo to play tomorrow.

22 Sep 2020 11:52:54
I see we are being linked with Starr he was one of the widemen I identified at the start of the window, young, quick, direct and with good feet however given the size of the fee and the fact we are competing with Liverpool allegedly then I think it probably won't happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Sep 2020 13:37:00
Freddie or Ringo? 😊😊.

22 Sep 2020 15:16:11
Edwin? 🤔.

22 Sep 2020 15:44:02
I struggle to see why we would chase another right winger when we have just signed Traore, who prefers that flank.

The fee looks heavier than we would wish to pay too.

Sarr is mainly reliant on pace. He can produce telling moments in games, but I am not sure he quite fits bill, unless the long drawn out Rashica deal has bitten the dust and Traore is happy operating as a left footer down the left - quite a radical step that though; real retro!

{Ed001's Note - Sarr can play on both flanks or through the middle.}

22 Sep 2020 15:55:34
If autocorrect doesn’t stop changing my texts this effing phone is going into orbit 😂😂.

22 Sep 2020 16:08:38
Ed - Any chance with Sarr do you think?

{Ed001's Note - if you pay enough, he wants to move.}

23 Sep 2020 10:15:54
Man that was so funny 😂.

21 Sep 2020 16:51:38
Milot rashica has posted a pic of him and marvellous from their vitesse days, and he mention marvellous in the post. Is this a sign he is close?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 18:54:50
That was done weeks ago Fezz.

21 Sep 2020 22:13:34
No this is a new picture.

21 Sep 2020 22:29:09
Weeks ago? He posted it yesterday. I for 1 think he’s 99% certain to sign, there would b more talk about josh king if he wasn’t imo. a covering CB and a LB in before end of window if I was to bet on it.

22 Sep 2020 09:16:00
I agree Whackattack. It’s looking likely again; several reports coming out of Kosovo that it’s a done deal. For a while, the issue appeared to be the fee. and seemingly that’s now agreed. Hopeful!

I hope we are also getting a promising LB to push, if not replace, Targett. If Samatta and Engels are moving on, both need replacing. And we still need a no. 8. A lot more to come I feel.

22 Sep 2020 14:15:42
Awfully sorry W, A, I was unaware another picture had been released.
If you remember a picture of Nakamba and Rashika was shown weeks ago, I thought it was the same one, silly me, hence my post.

24 Sep 2020 21:41:38
Why has Badger Boi got such a bone on for Rashica? He’s also got one for Kingvilla8 😂😂😂.

25 Sep 2020 19:23:54
I have come to the conclusion that we should kick the Rashica deal into touch and opt for Buendia. Yes, I know they favour different flanks, but I would use the Norwich man more to feed Watkins, Traore and co. through the middle.

Time is running tight, although I know we have longer with EFL players, but I think it is time to forget the Kosovan option.
