It seems that Lamberts hardball has paid off and Sinclair has conceded to a loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the season. This is possibly the best scenario for us as we get the player we all wanted and we get a trial run with him to see if he still has what we all hope he does before we make any further commitments.
The word is that the medical has been passed which means an official announcement is due any time soon.
Now for some more exciting news, Aston Villa are apparently in a battle with Hull City (Yes, Hull City) for the 29 year old Demba Ba and I must admit, this is a very exciting prospect as I believe he would be the perfect partner for Benteke and a struggling team.
This is a very short and snappy post but I genuinely think that despite all of this negativity surround Aston Villa and even more so on this forum post the Tom Fox comments, I honestly believe that Aston Villa are at the beginning of something great and the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to appear. I don’t believe the club will be sold and once we survive relegation, I think there will be some serious investment in the club come the summer. It is no small feat ensuring players stay at a failing club, and even more so, bringing in decent players. Maybe I am naive, but I do honestly believe that this summer will see the start of a new era at Villa park.
Whilst i’m here making these wild comments, I think this is our year for the FA Cup as well. Now come at me people, tell me how wrong these thoughts are.
Just hearing that AVFC are attempting a late bid for MK Don’s Delle Alli. The 19 year old is currently at MK Dons and is being touted as one of Englands future prospects. It was understood that Newcastle was close to signing the player for 5million with him remaing at MK Dons for the remainder of the season but this is rumoured to have been halted by Aston Villas late interest.
5 million you all say? To make things more believable, the word is that we have lined up a 2million bid, with the option to loan the player back for the remainder of the season and then pay the rest off the fee come summer.
What do you all think? This transfer window is turning out to be very entertaining, lets’s hope some of todays stories reach an official agreement.
