As has been alluded to earlier in this thread, given the issues around their TV money we should be looking to rinse Ligue 1 for all its worth.

Profit at others misfortune you mean?

I'd go with "buy good players that their current clubs want to keep".

Like I'd hope most of the signings that we make are.

We are signing Kenny Sanson.  Apparently.

Sounds like the sort of quality option we need in midfield to rely upon if Dougie, McGinn or Barkley are knackered/injured.

Naaa fuck that, its a dog eat dog business. Hence why Levy offered us £3m plus Onomah for Grealish when we were scraping about for pennies. Thankfully a couple of days later we were taken over by 2 rich bastards.

Thatís Tottenham who iíd expect that sort of behaviour from. League 1 sides are a different case. An extra £50,000 or additional fee for first team appearances could be enough to keep a league 1 side in business for longer in the current situation.  Thatís not saying we become a benevolent club but that we donít become one who exploits clubs who are on their knees.

Dave said Ligue 1, not League 1. Them Frenchies.

He plays for Marseille.

Edit: sorry, hadn't seen LFS's comment above.

Following Marseille for quite a while i can guarantee that Samson is a very good player.

Especially at the moment when haircuts are banned.

Julien Maynard saying Villa are after Morgan Sanson of OM.  Looks a strong rumour.  Fabrizio Romano confirms Villa's interest, too, on Twitter.

Why, why, why sign him?

Profit at others misfortune you mean? I would like us to give a fair price for any player or players that we see could be developed. If we were skint I might think differently but weíre not. I know itís a cold hard business but still, as Aston Villa weíre more than a business looking to exploit opportunities.

Good point, particularly as Marseille are renowned for their ethics.

He looks like he has the speed and fitness to fit in well with our counter attacking style. If we keep adding those types of players we're going to be frightening on he counter.

How much is he likely to cost? The type of player we'd miss out on signing to West Ham (still sore over Bowen - he would be great in this Villa team).

25m mentioned in the papers saying West Ham are after him (as are Newcastle but they want to wait till the summer).
