    It’d be nice but he’d only be the first piece in the jigsaw. I honestly don’t think he’d be entirely happy seeing Guzan float the ball over his head to Benteke all the time as per Lamberts instructions.
    Lambert OUT!
    Lerner OUT!

      Who said he’s not good enough to get into the team? He had a bust up at Porto… My word….

          Well, don’t live in Portugal, don’t know Defour personally so can’t answer that truthfully, but hopefully some day soon you’ll realize that clubs get used by just about everyone, fans, players, manager’s, owners, scouts, assistants, directors and so on. It’s simply how it is.

    His agent played down the asking price of 20m, claiming he’d only cost about what Porto paid for him. So a great deep lying play making signing if this comes true.

    The club won’t sanction this, Lambert’s probably lining up more lower league dross and Lerner will be rubbing his hands at more low wages, low cost rubbish to help us reach the dream of avoiding relegation for the 4th season in a row.
    Defour can and will do much better, he should do himself a favour and join a club with hope and ambition because he’s never going to find that at VP

      It’s a bit like wanyama last yr and bony. No way were we in for them complete bollox to sell STs. The same again why would any quality player come here unless his contract is riddled with. escape clauses. And if that’s the case we don’t want that kind if player. Once benteke hits form he will be off asap.

        we need attacking midfielders with quality, this dude plays the same as westwood and ahamdi, don’t think this transfer will happen.

      I hope you are wrong. He would be a great addition. You all want Lambert gone, but who instead ? ! ?

    That’s the eternal question Mike. I don’t trust anyone at the Villa to make the right replacement.
    The trouble is though, that I think many fans are now thinking whoever we got in couldn’t be any worse!

    As for Defour, I find the agent’s comment interesting.
    How come he can mention the Villa, but doesn’t name any other clubs?
    Or is it more a case of we’re the only club interested in the player in reality?

    Either way, I suspect it’s bollox, myself.

      Largely guessing because Villa’s openly talked to him/watched him. I’m pretty sure he’s been linked to a few German clubs like Leverkusen, Schalke and such but he wants an EPL move and we’ve been linked before. He was also probably only really asked if Villa were interested.

    is this another link to another player by an agent looking for more money, it does happen a lot to us. not blaming Lambert or Lerner for this, our club are very scretive when it comes to signing players. These agents are a nightmare in the attempts for bigger bonuses. he may well come to Villa he may well not but aside from the issues at Villa this is another one that is ruining football

    Defour is a solid player,plays good football and Porto are in good shape so the reason for him not playing at Porto because there are better suited.This does not mean Defour is shit cuz he can’t make first team at Porto each week.If we played Porto we would get skinned ATM.Defour solid signing good player improve our midfield no end.UTV

    We don’t want players who are competition for the current midfield because they are a shower of shit. If the players we bring in aren’t ready to walk straight into the first team then don’t bloody bother !!

      This is the problem SEB.
      They’re all much of a muchness, that are up and coming.
      Benteke apart, I’m struggling to think of a single replacement that Lambert has bought in that has improved on what we had.

    centre midfield is were we are lacking,of players we have only delph is anything like villa quality, westwood and the others are lacking a all round game ~ 2 be a starting figure in any villa team I av seen ~none are worthy 2 lace gordan cowans boots ~ this is were we are losing the battle~
    Langford shouts about tom huddlestone. hes spot on he makes hull tigers tick ~ this Defour guy I doubt would come 2 villa. hes probably using our name 2 drum up interest

    This is a great player can’t believe some of the comments on here! He would improve our midfield dramatically! But it won’t happen, ooh ah again with your bollox conspiracy theorys that make no sense! Defoers agent is now tryin to sell season tickets for villa please do me a favour, it won’t happen simply because villa have been mentioned, i have no doubt we made an inquiry, but his agent told Lambert his wage demands and Lambert fell off his chair at the thought of paying a good player more than 30k a week! Instead he would prefer to get 3 shit players for 10k that makes much more sense! The agent only mentions villa because he knows we will not be makin an offer, villa like to keep things quite so if we were really in for him the agent would say nothin about villa simple as.

      Exactly … Which is also why Anderlecht have been named publicly as well. They can’t afford the player, and the player doesn’t want to go there … If anyone is wondering how good he is, remember the pre champions league qualifier Liverpool played against Standard Liege a few years ago. Fellaini, Axel Witsel and Steven Defour occupied the Standard midfield and they dominated, but ultimately it was Liverpool that got through with penalties (if my memory serves me well). Fellaini went to Everton, and Defour was bound for ManU if it wasn’t for an injury that costed Defour his transfer and six months of his career, because actually Defour was the playmaker and the better player of those three. A few years later, Axel Witsel moved to Benfica and Defour went to Porto, together with Eliaqium Mangala. Defour had to settle for the bench because Moutinho kept him out of the squad. Although an unlikely transfer to happen, Defour would be the Villa player that would finally offer the team a real midfield as he is both a 6 and an 8 into one player.

    I would say this is an attempt by the players agent to up interest in his client!!! He mentions about a fondness to the premier league.. im guessing there looking for another club from the league to cum forward!!

      For “a fondness to the premier league..” read “a fondness to the premier league’s wages..”.

      The only way we would get someone like that is if we sell CB to appease the fans. It won’t happen why are we even bothering to talk about it. Move on!
