Dunne's package sums MON up

Not sure why?

More so than the packages agreed with Barry, A Young, Milner, Agbonlahor, for example?

Anyhow, if Lambert is to be believed maybe another package will follow - the one that sums up Lambert perhaps?

Big wages for a mediocre player. See: virtually every player O'Neill signed that isn't Young, Petrov, Carew, Downing or Milner.

I'd be very surprised if Lambert offered him a deal. All this in the press is professionalism and nothing more.

 

not sure was never any of the same compliments towards Warnock who contract was winding down. I think we missed him this season but I think his injuries have caught up with him and unless we offered him a pay as you play deal or a massive pay-cut I doubt he will be here next season.

 

Could see him signing for QPR if we let him go

He won their player of the year last year. He has been woeful this year bordering on a liability at times. I don't want either of them but I'd take Dunne on a good day over Heitinga in the past.

Actually, where is Dunne ? Is he injured or just an outcast ? Or both

I mean you don't even see pics of him on the OS doing community work ?

When was he last seen ?

I saw him in Waitrose just over a week ago, if that helps :-)

I really hope we don't give him a new contract. I'd rather use those wages on a younger more in form defender. Plus at this point, Baker and Clark are probably the better options.

He is done here.

 

 

Aston Villa's forgotten man Richard Dunne will this week be told to look for a new club after missing the whole of last season through injury.

Dunne has been unable to kick a ball competitively for the claret and blues since the final day of the previous campaign over a year ago and his contract will not be renewed when it expires next month.

Manager Paul Lambert has previously k ept the door open for Dunne to return to action to give the defender time to recover from groin trouble.

But it has been decided to allow the experienced Ireland international to leave on a free when his four-year deal at the club comes to an end in late June.

Dunne has been unable to turn out for Villa this season after sustaining the injury on Euro 2012 duty last summer.

He did take part in Villa’s pre-season tour of the U.S. last summer, but pulled out after cameos in two friendlies when it became too painful to continue.

The 33-year-old centre-half had an operation on the problem area last August and has regularly visited specialists, including a trip to see an expert in the States.

But after seemingly making progress, Dunne has suffered several setbacks and has failed to reach a level of fitness to make him available for selection.

He has been among Villa’s top earners since signing from Manchester City in August 2009, and at a time when Villa are managing their wagebill carefully does not fit Lambert’s preference for up-and-coming players.

Darren Bent, Stephen Ireland and Shay Given are set to have talks about their futures at the club during the next few days, while Alan Hutton will be spoken to when his loan at Mallorca finishes in a fortnight, as the manager steps up his plans for next season.

Villa have now finalised their pre-season programme by confirming a showpiece friendly against La Liga club and this season’s Champions League quarter-finalists Malaga at Villa Park at 3pm on Saturday, August 10.

Not surprised at this news. He was an ok defender but for what we were paying him every week was just silly money. Think the most important thing for him is to make sure he recovers but wouldn't be surprised if we see Richard Dunne hanging up his boots soon.

After not playing since the Euros nearly a year ago it would of been stupid to offer him another deal of similar or lower value, slightly sad to see him go as at one stage he was in the PL team of the year. Good luck Dunney in the MLS most likely. 50k off the wage bill (now sitting at 100k with released players) to be invested wisely by Paul Lambert on an experienced centre half to partner Vlaar next season with Clark and Baker as back-ups.
