Villa to bid for 20 year old Morgan Sandon. Another good young french player with a eye for a goal and can play and tackle. Be another good addition.

Where have you seen this? If this is true I think he would probably be our best signing. He was incredible in the champions league last year.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 19:49:03
I have seen this to. And another midfielder from France. Starting to think ts snapping up all the young talent about for a strong future as Chelsea do.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 16:18:19
Not sure how real the interest was in Florian Thauvin (if at all)
But, I'm assuming that with a forward line comprising Kozac, Gestede and Adebayor, we are going to looking for an out and out winger ?
Exciting times

31 Jul 2015 22:20:11
do you think that is us done with signing strikers?
i would have liked to see another possible star like embolo or martial
i don't know much about gestede only he didn't make it into cardiffs premier league team and he had a good season last year in championship. doesn't sound amazing.

still fear the right back position too. would like Richards just to slot in there when okore is fit to play with clark. but from what i hear he really wants to be a centre back.

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently put up on Twitter by former Metz team-mate Gaetan Bong - and then very rapidly taken down. Must be a done-deal though

Another rumour circulating Social networks Koziak is close to going on season long loan to Forest once Gestede signs deal, bit of shame if true he has had good pre-season :)

Believable2 Unbelievable1

31 Jul 2015 13:11:18
Won't happen, not the right age for loan deal and we don't need him off the wages, I'm sure he will be an impact player off the bench this season.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 13:53:34
I hope so too Kenye he would be better off with us and I want him at VP but what I've read is very similar him and Gestede and Forest loan once the latter signs,but let's hope your right :)

West brom reject an approach for lescott from villa

Believable3 Unbelievable0

31 Jul 2015 12:03:40
Anyone else think this is just to annoy them because the bid £2m for Clark?
And lescott being a villa fan might kick off about a move whereas Clark wouldn't leave?

Or a replacement for Baker whose Burnley bound?

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 12:20:42
Lol maybe, 2 sources,1 saying we bid 1mill offered 2 yr contract source 1 saying WBA rejected,source 2 saying again that deal is still on table :))

A few new signings to be officially confirmed later today I'm thinking.

31 Jul 2015 02:49:05
Should be at least two signings today

Looks like a triple signing today!

Nantes midfielder Jordan Veretout will have a medical at Aston Villa on Friday ahead of a proposed move to Villa Park, according to Sky sources.

It promises to be a busy day for the Villa medical staff with Rudy Gestede also set for a medical at the club after a deal was reached with Blackburn.

Adebayor medical and terms all agreed.

I think Sherwood has done well so far, but have a feeling this is the end of his transfer business, what does anyone else think?

Agree3 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 08:58:22
Looking forward to triple signing later on today maybe or just the double :)) and Kenye think you could be right business concluded,bring on Forest sat more idea starting 11,then a week with whole squad prep for seasons opener,first time long time bit excited this year :)) UTV!!!

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 09:10:38
I think villa have done extremely well so far. My guess is that we are all filled with optimism now. A fresh start, the loyal fans have been rewarded. In terms of transfers, I wonder if Tim has a new gk lined up.

I know many have been suggesting n'zog should be sold, but I wonder if it's worth hanging onto him as the new look attacking villa might be more suited to him. I know he has been poor over the last 3 seasons, but that was in a team based around defending from the front and having no possession. We could sell him - but how much would we get ? 1-2 million ? May as well hang on to him

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 10:37:06
That's true about NZogbia but he's had 3 seasons with us and done nothing spectacular.
On 50k a week, I would prefer to sell him and bring in a replacement, or give Gil a solid chance this season.

A new Goalkeeper is also a good shout. I am a big fan of Guzan, but worry about our back ups if he gets injured or has a bad run of form.

Sherwood bid £8m for Begovic, I'm sure he didn't have Bunn as his second choice, so maybe he will go for another if more funds are avaliable?

I hope the signings continue but even if they don't Sherwood has done excellent business before the season kicks off, agreeing with Jayz they have a week together before the season opener against Bournemouth.
That will be tough, there well up for it and fans expecting a lot this year, I live in Bournemouth, so see the expectation, all be it a bit deluded, they play attacking football and will score goals, it's there defence we need to exploit.
We need to get a winning start so Sherwood finding his starting 11 is key for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 11:27:11
Agree get rid nzogbia a.s.a.p looking reading about him taking to Twitter venting is the last thing we need in dressing room,we need harmony,happy players and togetherness. I see Bournemouth being the Blackpool of old having good games shocking top teams it won't be easy,but for once in a long time I see we have players capable of technical abilitys,skill,creativity if TS gets I hope what he expects after buying these players we will see nice football for once,there will be highs and lows but it's a work in progress,but I know what us villa fans get like,remember start last season W4 D1 L0 we where all talking about champions league,so let's be patient and enjoy the football I think/hope we will witness this year :))

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 11:44:42
I'd love to see Gil,Sinclair and grealish playing behind a striker and two hard working CM behind them. Play attacking football and I'd reckon that a lot of games drawn over previous years would suddenly become wins. Let's set up to win games rather than playing for draws/respectable score lines like we did under lambert and MacLeish before him.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 12:07:27
I still think after the 3 players today tim will still want another 3 by the end of window. This may depend on players going out as well but I think we will get a Gk cb rm . Don't think he fully trusts guzan as num 1 bacona ain't the answer on the right and if baker goes a player like lescot or of similar quality to go with richards and compete with clark. Could use gil on right though.
