Darren Bent will become Mark Hughes first signing at Stoke, it's believed the deal is worth £6million.

Believable8 Unbelievable5

Replace him with bony?
Front line of benteke agbonlahor weimann bony nzogbia holman

Agree3 Disagree3

Take Ireland with him plz

Agree8 Disagree1

Not sure about bent going to Stoke, but I think Ireland will go there and link up wiyh his old buddy Hughes

Agree6 Disagree2

Bent is only willing to take the drop in wages if he's going to a london club and stoke have a wage cap 45k a week

Agree6 Disagree2

Holman has been saying to Aussie paper he might leave. I think we should sell him tbh. 2-3 million profit

Agree7 Disagree0

Don't think bent can be that fussy about his wages/next club to be honest.

Agree2 Disagree1

Stoke want to play attacking football & that's not Peter Crouch. Stoke also say they want to improve their league positions which means spending more cash - they will want Bent.

Agree3 Disagree1

So. a front line of 6 and presumably 3 across the back and 1 in midfield.
I suppose its different!!

Agree5 Disagree0

We should use that money to buy a new defender/midfielder our forwards are solid. If we get these Bulgarian wingers we can use them on the wing if Benteke gets injured the push gabby or weimann in their favourite striker role

Agree1 Disagree0

Cresswell and Murphy will sign for villa in mid July once Villa have tied down the likes of Benteke, Weinman, Lowton and Westwood.

Believable14 Unbelievable2

Better not leave it late : (

Agree8 Disagree1

Hopefully benteke, weimann an lowton will sign new contracts before mid July.

Agree5 Disagree2

Benteke is joining spurs or the gunners and wiemann will join Norwich as he doesn't want another relagation battle

Agree2 Disagree3

Weimann will join norwich cus he doesn't want to be in another relegation battle? Lmfao! Norwich are an always gunna be in a relegation battle, they have no future in the prem, there here to make up the numbers, that's it!

Norwich fans love coming on the villa forum, I reckon their closeted villa fans

Agree5 Disagree1

Norwich will be in a far worse position than Villa. Villa were as close to mid-table as they were the relegation battle come the end of the season.

Agree2 Disagree0

"Sunderland and Newcastle United target Andreas Weimann’s future is up to Aston Villa, according to his agent. "
So, how is Weimann going to join a mediocre side like Norwich City then?

Agree1 Disagree0

You've been reading the rags again haven't you mate
Why the hell would Weimann go to Norwich?
They were in practically the same position as us at the end of last season. If you insist on making stuff up, at least make it plausible. or consider a career in journalism

Agree1 Disagree0

Is that the Norwich that was in the relegation battle with us? How much dead horse is there to beat on this benteke story, whenever it dies some unknown sports website reposts the same post and starts it up again.

Villa ARE interested in Aleksandar Tonev but he isn't having a medical!

Believable11 Unbelievable2

What exactly does this mean? As far as i'm aware you only have a medical if the two sides agree a fee and give permission.

Unless things have changed dramatically in a matter of days.

Agree6 Disagree1

Bit hard when he was playing for his club last night.

Agree7 Disagree1

According to the paper this was published in. there was a rumour that he was due in for a medical today. but it turns out that Villa are only interested in signing him and no nothing as yet has been agreed between the clubs

Agree4 Disagree1

Villa are in talks with his club over a fee for Tonev but nothing more. His projected move to Celtic is now on hold as he would prefer to play in the EPL than the SPL.

Agree4 Disagree2

Troy Deeney would be the best signing, good young promising striker who is prolific in front of goal.

Agree0 Disagree4

A fee of £2.5m has now been agreed - he is now scheduled a medical & personal talks!

Agree4 Disagree0

£2. 5 Million fee agreed, will have contract talks over the weekend.
Deal should be completed by Tuesday.

Agree5 Disagree0

Darren Bent's replacement will be one of the following

Charlie Austin
Dwight Gayle
Matej Vydria
Troy Deeney

all valued around 2-4m mark

Believable4 Unbelievable10

None of the forwards listed here are anywhere near villas standards. have u actually watched any of them? all awful.

Agree6 Disagree6

Everyone par Gayle coul make it in the prem- they have all par Gayle scored 20+ this season

Agree1 Disagree7

If bent goes as a replacement I think I'd like to see lukaku on loan maybe or someone like Defoe he may be available if spurs sigh villa or Damiao. I'd even get Keane back. These are suggestions. I'll wait for the divs now who go he wants youth bla bla bla. Like I pointed out at the top of the post it's who I WOULD LIKE TO SEE :)

Agree8 Disagree1

Lukaku could be easily drawn to Villa Park due to Villa having Benteke, imagine Bentekkers & Lukaku! #unbeatable.

Agree5 Disagree6

You lot are dilluded! None of them strikers up to your standard!? The only striker u have that is worth anything is Benteke, Bent never gets a look in (only Lambert knows why), Agbonlahor/Weimann will never be 20 goal a season strikers and are preferred in the wide areas, Bowery. say no more! Its time you were a bit more realistic with your expectations! Austin and Vydra would do a decent job for Villa, Gayle not quite ready yet and Deeney is a bit hit and miss!

Agree4 Disagree9

Matej vydra is class. He'd be a great signing, but none will be able to do what Benteke did, those guys would be better replacements if we can't resign Weimann, but not replacing Benteke

Agree4 Disagree7

Gabby is a 15 goals a season striker & Weimann will easily be a 20 goal a season striker. and you calling us deluded!

Agree4 Disagree1

Gabby and Weimann would get 20 between them! WAKE UP!!

Agree1 Disagree0

I'm sorry but playing out of position gabby and andi both scored 12 each. That's 24 goals from out of position. Imaging them linking up top if benteke leaves. Which he WON'T.

Agree2 Disagree1

Tom huddlestone, adel taarrat

Believable2 Unbelievable9

Taraabt is lazy, the exact type of player Lambert's trying to get rid of.

Agree8 Disagree1

I'd take huddlestone, Taarabt no thanks we already got enough players who piss about with the ball ending up in nothing.

Agree6 Disagree1

31 May 2013 02:00:03
Villa and Stoke to battle it out for Tom Huddlestone this summer.

Is the flamini transfer just a rumour or are we actually looking to bring him in on a free transfer? Good signing if true

Believable3 Unbelievable6

We were also rumoured to have wanted him last summer

Agree4 Disagree1

He signed a new 1 year contract extension so not happening

Agree6 Disagree0

Yet last summer he wasn't a free agent.

Agree2 Disagree2

Just because he wasn't a free agent last summer does not mean we were not interested in him

Agree1 Disagree0
