He likes a trick that's for sure.  Never seems to be much end product though, but looks a decent prospect.

He is 19 and playing with Reading. We don't need the finished article. He has a lot of natural ability. We would be the perfect environment to develop him.
I would imagine playing regularly in the Championship rather than our u23's with an occaisional sub appearance would be the perfect way for him to develop.  But even so, yes he looks a very good prospect and for the right price I'd be keen to see what he can do with us.

£8m these days is buttons, I'd be all over that.

If his agent has negotiated a 8m release clause you can guarantee said agent will be starting a wages auction and expecting 70/80k a week no doubt.  Very talented lad though

I'd definitely take Olise, looks a top prospect. I'd probably loan him back to them for the rest of the season though because he's developing well at the minute.

He's exactly the sort of signing I like though, if he's not quite ready loans are easy to set up if he is ready it gives us a 'free' spot in the 25 man squad for a couple of years.

I am sure there will be quite a few clubs interested in him at that price.

Looks a good prospect. For £8m, hardly a gamble. Good physique on him too, he will be tough to knock off the ball when he fills out.

Seeing that Tierney was out of the Arsenal squad (through injury evidently), thought we had put a Bid in for him. Just the sort of signing that would signal our intentions.

No way this is happening with his other brothers still at the club

Jovic and Moussa Dembele both moved on loan today, thought either would do well in PL

Aston Villa are considering letting Conor Hourihane leave on loan this month amid interest from a number of clubs.

I can see why clubs would want Conor but I would only let him go if we replace him

Could argue that Ramsey has moved ahead of him now.  Any news of Lansbury going?

There’s an article on The Athletic saying that Blose are having a shake up of their youth system and releasing most of their top talent. Apparently Villa are naturally taking note. I can copy and paste the article if anyone is interested?
