Ironically, he's anything but Bony - looks pretty **** hench. Going by the vid (I know, I know) - looks bloody strong, reasonably comfy with the ball at his feet and fairly composed in his finishing.

Arguably more impressive than Benteke.

So hang on, we agreed a loan deal and they were set to travel to Birmingham, then Vitesse pull out and only want to sell him?

Vitesse are a weird club at the moment. They are the only club with foreign owners in the Eredivisie. Their Georgian owner is called Merab Jordania who is basically Roman Abramovich's slave boy. Their management team is full of thugs and a former bar owner is technical director.

They had agreed a deal with ajax a week ago as well to buy Vitesse cult-hero Theo Janssen and came back a day later saying that they wanted to pay 100.000 Euro's less. Ajax denied to accept this, every Vitesse fan absolutely pissed off so a few days later they ended up paying the original amount and got him in the end.

I think Villa can be glad that this deal hasn't gone through. Bony is quite a good player but I'm not sure if he is Premier League material. He's really lazy and not very quick but his technique, hold up play and calmness in front of goal is really impressive. He would do well in Serie A.
