I'm not in the Alkmaar squad...

Are you not heading to Nijmegen?

No King in the Bormuff squad, no Buendia in the Norwich squad, No Benrahma in the Brentford squad and apparently Eduoard was an unused sub for Celtic today and they used all five subs.  No Rashica in the Bremen squad either.  Which one of this little lot is Villa bound?

Posted this in another thread but looks like more big signings aren't likely (though not out of the question)

"while manager Dean Smith remains on the look-out for reinforcements the deal for Traore is likely to represent the end of the major deals in this window unless an unforeseen opportunity presents itself."

That quote is from Phil McNulty, of the BBC. And as thousands of fans have pointed out to him all day on twitter, Deano said the exact opposite yesterday in front of all the cameras and microphones. Including the BBC's.

I'll be greedy and take Eduoard and Rashica please.

I was thinking exactly the same and wouldn't be in the slightest bit surprised if this came off, if we can shift a few too. I wonder if Buendia and Benrahma are plan B and C for Rashica. King and Brewster are plan B and C for Eduoard.

I would be suprised if it did come off to be honest but would be probably more excited than I've been for any other season since I was a kid.

I think that in some ways Brewster would make more sense than Eduoard in that he might be less demanding in the amount of first team starts and so an obvious first back-up to Watkins. But there's just something about Eduoard that makes me think he could be a real star for us, not based on anything other than a feeling.

Yeah,  I reckon Eduoard has been plan a all the way through.  Be great to have players further forward who can interchange and keep the opposition guessing.

Benrahma seems to be heading to Palace.

I'd like to see us sign Tuanzebe. He can cover CB, RB (I know we are well stocked) and DCM.

Particularly if Engels is heading for the exit and with Lindelof and Maguire both bang average but getting picked, Tuanzebe is not even on the bench for Yanited, which I can't imagine he is enjoying.

I believe Tuanzebe is injured or is just getting back to fitness. I think he'd be a good signing but his injury record would be a concern.

Isnít he always injured while heís with them? A bit like RHM was always injured with us.

Edouard and a CMF - L-Cheek perhaps- would be amazing.

My concern is how we're getting shot of the dead weight - Lansbury, particularly, may be hard to move, but we also need shot of Jota and 2 keepers.
