  1. I’m sorry, it just had to be done. This guy is as legit as any other source during this window! He’s been bang on with a lot of stuff in the past and I believe is close to the player? Just a shame villareport got in on the speculation… we all know how credible that lot is…
  2. For me - this would be a more exciting signing than Coutinho

    Kerr Smith

    Dundee United have agreed a deal to sell Kerr Smith to Aston Villa in a deal that could eventually net them close to £2 million. The English Premier League side have managed to negotiate a significant transfer fee up front along with a number of major add-ons for their in-demand academy graduate. Crystal Palace, Southampton, Everton and Chelsea were all interested in the 17-year-old but Steven Gerrard’s Villa have struck a deal with sporting director Tony Asghar. The teenager has now been given permission to travel south for a medical, to agree terms and finalise his dream move. Villa rate Smith as one of the best young defenders of his age in the United Kingdom and very much see him as one for the future. He will be integrated into their under-23 squad in the short-term. Smith only signed his first professional contract with United last December when he turned 17 and even then there was strong English Premiership interest. The talented youngster has been fast-tracked into the United teams and already has several first-team appearances under his belt. Scottish Daily Express
  4. Back up keeper at West Ham signing on loan for rest of the season apparently. Ex SHA and played for ROI many times. Apologies if this has been covered in transfer thread but didn't see his thread anywhere. Edit: Seems a bit odd if we go out tonight as we'll just have the prem games but guess Gerrard dosen't think Steer is up to it and he could well move on this window.
  5. No idea who Craig Hope is, or whether his reporting is worth worm dung.
  6. I’ve a feeling this thread won’t be needed very long as an appointment will be made very quickly but this is the place for debating the names. Anyone who says Steve Bruce gets a 3 year VT ban.
  7. I'd do the job myself, but I'm sure I'd have a lot of doubters.
  8. The people have spoken and the people have said, "Give us somewhere we can discuss whether we want a new manager, and if we do, who we want it to be". So here it is. Please use this thread to discuss whether you'd like a new manager, whether you'd rather stick with the current one, why you feel that way, what it would take to change your mind, who you'd like to come in if he goes and why you like them - all of that sort of stuff. As with player speculation, if there's an actual link in the press to a manager, we'll open a new thread for speculation on that individual manager, so if we're linked to Giorgio Frimponi and you know something about him, or something about the article, you can share it there. If you want to talk about Dean Smith and how he's doing, where he can improve, what you think he's doing well or his selections, please put that in the Dean Smith thread. This one is for all of the speculation, discussion and your thoughts on the current situation in regards to our future and the manager's position. Enjoy. (and stop googling Giorgio Frimponi.)
  9. So never to early to speculate and get the wish list in. I can see this being a very busy window considering how well this season has gone so far, we have a few players coming to the end of there contracts Elmo, Conor and Taylor. Realistically I don't think any will see contract extensions Conor has obviously already gone out on loan and best of luck to him. Taylor and Elmo could still both cut it in the Championship and both will leave on free in the summer. Ross Barkley's loan will end in May and chances are he will go back to Chelsea personally I don't see us signing him. So in the summer I see us needing to: Replace Barkley - Jack Grealish say hi! Sell Engels and replace with a young up and coming CB, happy to have Mings, Konsa, Hause and a n other in the squad Replace Taylor, Targett has had a good season but next season will show whether he is the real deal or not. Chances are Guilbert will be gone so guess a new RB to push Cash? A CF to push Ollie A quality left winger with pace. Thoughts?
  10. By popular request I'm creating the brand new fish and tits thread
  11. Juventus looking to sell. Surely one or two years left in the tank...
  12. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/cheick-doucoure-aston-villa-transfer-21263453 Also linked through GoalFrance Aston Villa are said to be "in negotiations" with the representatives of RC Lens midfielder Cheick Doucoure ahead of a possible move to the Premier League this summer, if reports from France are to be believed. Reported by Goal, Villa are competing with Italian club Atalanta for Doucoure who made 33 Ligue 1 appearances last season. Mali international Doucoure scored twice for Lens last term and helped the club secure survival in the French top-flight following promotion out of Ligue 2 the season before. Doucoure broke onto the scene in 2018 at the age of 19 when he was promoted to Lens' first-team and also made his debut for his home nation in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Gabon. French club Lens are expected to sell their star midfielder for €15million this summer, as per Goal's report which adds that Villa are yet to make a formal offer for the player.
  13. Been linked with Mario Hermoso from Atlético Madrid. He’s a good centre back, he played a fair bit last year in their title winning season. Atleti are my second team so I’d like to think I’ve seen him more than most on this forum, and he did well last season from what I remember. Thoughts?
  14. https://www.footballinsider247.com/aston-villa-cantwell-talks/ Wicked player, would love him to join. But could it be a sign Jack is off? Edit: just noticed this is a blacklist source, close thread if need be.
  15. Happy with this? Or did you still want Cantwell
  16. Agreeing with spacehead. A return of the ITK thread would be great, if not for anything else than entertainment.
  17. Percys story about Jack from this morning has been updated from the 'more to follow' it ended with earlier. This is the new bits, linking us to Sarr https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2021/07/30/exclusive-manchester-city-make-jack-grealish-transfer-bid-100million/
  18. Who would you have preferred at Villa?
  19. Reported in the Athletic that we're interested: https://theathletic.com/2611550/2021/05/28/aston-villa-are-chasing-mcneil-and-buendia-as-part-of-their-summer-transfer-plans/
  20. Athletic Please be true, real statement signing buying him off one of the supposed top 6.
