Leicester sniffing round McGinn.

They can do one!

I honestly doubt they are but Rodgers wanted to sign him for Celtic so it's a very easy link for a lazy journalist to make.

have the got 40 million spare?

Do they only want to buy one of his legs?

The mail have dug up a link to Moussa Marega from last year. No quotes no nothing - file under B.

Don't be daft. 40m wouldn't even pay for the insurance on McGinniesta's lefty!

Rodgers can only be after SJM's brother, Stephen, who plays for St Mirren.

I was trying to keep it realistic but I wouldnt sell the shavings off his arse for 40 million! He is priceless to villa at this moment in time as is Jack.

Him and Jack will be the cornerstone of our rebuild and with the addition if butland(fairly likely & mings(odds on) we would have a fantastic spine to build around for the next 5-10 years

They will have if they flog Maguire.

Makes sense. SJM's other brother, Paul is a centre half.

I've not seen it mentioned on here but it's reported in the local media up here that we're interested in Terence Kongolo. Dutch international, plays either centre back or left back. I've not seen him play but he's highly rated by the locals, whatever that's worth. He'd cost in the region of 20 million.

George Boateng was the best player we have had in that role for years

I agree. I remember being at Anfield when Gerrard made his leg bend the wrong way but it didn't break. Boating was hard as nails and totally reliable.
That was the match where I began a lifelong hatred of Stevie Me and Gerard Houllier. Houllier's comment afterwards about Boateng being a very good actor was disgraceful.

didn't Paul Gascoigne try a forearm smash in a game and came away with a broken arm vs Boateng ?

found it...beware it's in slow motion

Apparently West Ham were having a look at Marvelous Nakamba last season. He's got good reviews as being a tough tackler and strong - would he get a work permit though? I'm not overly bothered about fees - it's gone silly season and anyone half decent looks like they're going to cost 10-20M. I'm more worried that we don't put too many players who haven't played in the UK together because they will take a few months to get used to the pace.

Apparently we would have to apply for a special work permit. This article is better than the Mail's - https://www.chronicle.co.zw/nakamba-on-villa-radar/

Agree 100% Mike  George was very undervalued.  IMO.

How did we let the likes of Boateng, Southgate and Ugo leave us to join the might of Middlesboro??

I really hope this time we are sustainably competitive in the top division. Not the drain circling efforts at the tail end of the Ellis and Lerner reigns respectively. We appear much better set up off the park now at least.

McGinn and Steer being offered new contracts apparently.
