Christian Benteke

Recommended Posts

I reckon we will go again in Jan

We are short up front now though. Are we going to muddle on until Janurary as we are I wonder. ( this is assuming Benteke doesn't sign of course )

Not done yet.

Can't say I'm overly impressed by players who use these kind of tactics to force a move though.

Is this deal off?

Nope. Apparently he is in Birmingham awaiting clubs to agree a deal. Nursey thinks we may not be able to agree a fee though. We shall see.

Roughly 25 1/2 hours to go.

I reckon we wont get him if Genk being awkward. They be a bit more realistic in their price in Jan if they have a wantaway player on their hands for a few months. We will have to get someone in on loan. Very annoying. Why the hell have we left it until the last week to bid for Bentke?

Ah well - at least we have the first link for the Jan window. Always thought it looked unlikley when they rejected the first bid.

Lets just hope Bowery proves the steal of century....FFS were due a bit of luck !

It doesn't mean he won't come. Carroll to west ham, sinclair to city proves this.

How does it ?

We don't have enough cash to up the bid ?

Neither of us would be interested in a loan

Genk don't want to sell

90% dead IMO

It's not even off though.

looks highly unlikely IMO now

Very similar to when liverpool wanted Barry:-

Liverpool wouldn't meet the asking price

Villa didn't want or need to sell

Barry wanted to go

....hopeful that Dempsey is plan B .......!!!!!!

I don't expect anything to happen until tomorrow considering they have a match this evening.

If the player wants it, both clubs will sort this out.

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick

The Christian Benteke transfer is not dead and the Genk striker is keen to join Villa, but the clubs are still apart with their valuations

Kendrick says its still on.

Thing is there comes a time that if we have other targets we have to shelve our interest in Benteke - and pursue those other targets...or else we are out of time......

Macheda from Manu has been a persistent twatter rumour.............not even sure he's still there....

I think Lambert, Culverhouse, Karsa, some of the scouts and even Faulkner all go out and chase after specific players each. I saw an interview with Lambert where he spoke about it.

I can't find a link for it archived anywhere but I'll keep looking.

So they're all out chasing various targets and once things are pretty much bang on they schedule the press conference.

Buraspor were after Macheda for a loan weren't they? Could be an interesting one. Could give us something else to instantly picture when he's mentioned.
