The Sun go further on the Alan Hutton: Alan Hutton Exit? Transfer News For Aston Villa rumour today saying that Villa and Sheffield Wednesday are haggling! Apparently Villa, correctly, want £1m fee for the full back whilst Sheffield Wednesday for some inexplicable reason want him on a free.

FREE? Why? No thanks. Pay up or jog on.

A report in:

says Alan Hutton posted on instagram “I am staying where I am” … he had a 12 month extension triggered through appearances made last season.

The same report says that Steve Bruce wants to bring 36-year-old Peter Crouch back to Villa Park. He`s currently at Stoke City but apparently unlikely to feature too much for them next season so might be tempted in a return to help us in our promotion push. Interesting one but .. well, really? We have Kodjia, Hogan and a by the looks of it fit and raring to go again McCormack. There is also ‘Mr Aston Villa` but I don`t really count players who only turn up for one match a season! Do we need another striker? The report says that Bruce wants to bring in a bit more experience. If Stoke City want a fee it could be a problem because Villa would have to cover the Premiership wages of our former striker.

Not sure. Thoughts?

  • Experience is one thing but we are been connected with too many players 30+ , really want the youth to be given a chance, move some of our ‘already past sell bye date’ players on.

  • Peter Crouch is a good experienced player who will always nip in to score the odd important goal or two, however I would resist the temptation to sign him up. Ok, you could say he could frighten a few defences in the Championship with his size and abilit

  • All this push to be promoted this season is entirely the wrong philosophy as is the push to get experienced/past it players is. We need to look past this season and plan with younger players to get us there and keep us there for the foreseeable future.

  • Just more cobblers from journos with no news to report. Even the good Dr has come out and dismissed the Crouch link today.

  • Exactly,HonestDave, Bruce knows its this season or never for him, So he thinks experienced old crocks is going to do it for him. Wrong again.
