L'Equipe are now reporting that the fee for El Ghazi was significantly less than originally reported at around 5m euros. Which in my opinion is a very good bit of business. Of course this is still unofficial and it will likely be sometime before we really know what the details of the deal are, but if true, it's another piece of very shrewd business.
I also have a 'friend of a friend' rumour that Villa are looking at signing Mings AND another established CB (I'd love Cahill for a season or two), as well as two marquee signings, one being a forward and one being a centre midfielder.
Reading between the lines it would seem they're focussed on topping up the squad with young and hungry players and putting in bigger bids to establish a solid core. Time will tell but all the signs are positive so far.
UTV.

Hi DJC, you are reiterating something that I've heard from someone who allegedly works in the football business. Apparently there is a list of 20 players who are wanted by "the club" over the next 3 transfer windows. He has also heard 4 deals are in ongoing discussions, and that others have been or are in the process of being submitted.

Only telling you what i have heard. May be BS, but based upon the performance of the club since promotion, it looks like we have a management team who mean business.

Definitely feels like we actually have a strategy in place and we're working hard to give ourselves a fighting chance in the prem. Not counting any chickens just yet though.
It's also slightly fortunate timing to get promoted leading into a season that ends in a major international tournament - generally speaking it means slightly higher calibre players become available with the need for regular football to make international squads. Fingers crossed!


3.) 11 Jun 2019 20:39:50
Nothing fortunate DJC, it means slightly elevated prices as well.


4.) 11 Jun 2019 23:04:55
Hi Villadave, disagree slightly on that front as inflated prices usually follow after a major tournament has taken place rather than before it, but the point I was making was more about the increased likelihood that premiere league/ top level players who aren't currently getting regular game time will be more inclined to consider transfers this summer when trying to ensure they make international squads. Hopefully something Villa can capitalise on like I say. Fingers crossed!

agree with you here DJC players on the fringe tend to want to drop to a lower team to get the game time to get that starting place. rose or chilwell at lb for England for instance rose could be open to a move to get the starting place he needs as chilwell is playing every week.

Sorry DJC, I see your point now, getting old mate.

Last I heard was that he arrived at Villa Park and had started training already, with the final paperwork still being processed.
Rumours of a last minute move from Spurs might be accurate but sounds like he's already committed to Villa which would make sense given his family ties. hopefully hear something in the next day or two I guess.

Doubt it mate, unless we sign two first. Just sick hence not in the squad.

If (and it's a big if) we go in for Benteke I think it's reasonable to have reservations as to whether he's still capable given his recent form. He could be reborn and back to his best though. Whether it's a good deal will depend on his form and the price we pay. not sure I'd label it as a panic buy though myself and my personal view is he'd be a good signing. We'll probably end up with Glen Murray though anyway haha.

I'd be amazed if Villa would even consider selling our main centre back while we're battling relegation, unless silly money is offered.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no interest in Mings and I have already explained about MB.}

Agreed Villadave - Just as telling for me were the scenes in the tunnel after the match with owners, CEO's coaches and players all in it together. This season was always going to be tough with highs and lows and still a lot of work to do, but thinking back to 18 months ago we can't grumble too much surely!
Many positives tonight but got to give a mention to Davis who I thought did really well when he came on. two decent signings before the weekend and hopefully we can all get behind the team and be the 12th man at Wembley and to get us away from the drop.

Can't see him changing things that drastically from a tactical point of view, let alone the logic of throwing a debutant in as well as a player returning from long term injury from the start. He'll either stick with the false 9 approach or start Samatta.
If we sign another striker and Keinan gets match fit he might consider two up top against weaker teams or when losing.

That's more than fair enough Classof82, I guess my point was just to challenge why you think the Sturridge rumour (which you clearly don't like the sound of) isn't wide of the mark as opposed to any other rumour flying around which you could be positive about? Have you heard anything on top of what's been reported? Fair play if so but please share it.
If not, it just seems odd to me to get worked up about something that may or may not happen that you don't like, when you could use exactly the same amount of logic and reasoning to turn your frown upside down and chose to believe one of the rumours you do like the sound of.
Each to their own I guess though.

I get how the thought might not fill you with wonder mate, but I'd save your energy and time for worrying about what does happen, not what might happen. The Sturridge thing is one of many rumours floating around in the usual January clickbait pot. if you're going to get carried away with rumours you might as well chose one you'd be happy with.
We're signing Piatek and Wanyama, Dean smith is a legend.

I'm hoping the same as you Villadave, assuming that this is aswell as a striker and not instead of.
Get where you're coming from but disagree slightly with Sky Transfer Centre. a lot of what they broadcast is just time filling nonsense and recycling the same rubbish you get trawling the internet from any dodgy source. Obviously they do have one or two decent reporters with genuine connections but more often than not they know as much as we do until something pops up on Twitter.
Had a beer tonight, sorry for the rant, but some of the rubbish they chat about on transfer centre pretending to have insight is like they read a script from that Kingy bloke.
Hangover tomorrow!
