And sometimes, whilst you'd rather get shot of player A first, there's money on the table for player B and you have to compromise.

What I don't expect to see is us offloading players before getting our man in first, I think those days are gone.

I wouldn’t want to sell, but if he doesn’t want to sign a new deal I can see why we would.

Gerrard claims we haven't offered him a new deal yet.

My take on Luiz is that if anyone offers us 40m for him, then we snap their hand off.

They won't cos he isn't worth it and his contract is running out. £30m tops I reckon maybe with clauses ie if he helps Brazil become more Covid-aware.

The Kamara we are being linked to, is it Boubacar (excited) or Glen from Rangers (meh)?

I though I recalled someone on here, maybe VinneChase, posting just after the new management team came in that they thought they had a worldie on their hands in Douggie - if that's the case I doubt they are keen to sell.

Richard, I really think being a law professional you should not be advocating this.

Watford and Norwich supposedly interested in Ashley Young with Villa willing to let him go for free now as they won't be renewing his contract in the summer. Makes sense for all involved and frees up 50k a week in wages.

My estimation of Luiz is obviously a lot higher than others on here
I think he is a class player and one we need to keep hold of if we can

On a more general point players that carry the ball forward and are more positive in the final third and take risks will always lose the ball and surrender possession more often than safe players Who take no risks pass the ball backwards and sidewards
Their stats look good but in reality they create little

So we have McGinn Ramsey Luiz Traoré Bailey Coutinho Sanson Chucky all of them like to move the ball forward which I think is a great thing but they will inevitably lose possession because they are taking more risks
And that’s what I think about Luiz Yeah he does give the ball away more often than say Hourahine did, but I know which one I’d rather have in the team

Luiz is only 23 and doing a very good job for a team in transformation. If we sell him it will be another regret adding to our long list of regrets.

This will be a good  move for all concerned and I hope he goes to Norwich and help Dean.

John Percy - #avfc are poised to open talks with Douglas Luiz over a new contract, following interest from Premier League clubs in this window. Luiz is valued very highly by Steven Gerrard and Villa, starting the last 9 matches, and a bid has been rejected this month.

Hopefully that ends that speculaltion for a player I think has got a very bright future.

Aston Villa don’t intend to offer more than €22m (including bonuses) for Rodrigo Bentancur, with Juventus wanting €30m. A halfway agreement cannot be ruled out. Bentancur, whose wages would be doubled, has not yet said ‘yes’ to joining.

I agree I’d love him to stay.
