The Mirror today claim we are after another Bulgarian Petrov to add to the team!
31-year-old Martin Petrov is available on a free after being released by Manchester City and apparently Villa are interested along with Spurs, Everton, Bolton, West Ham and pretty much any other team you choose to pluck out of thin air I guess!
Not often that sort of quality is available for free is it?
This isn’t directly Villa related by The Sun quote West Ham co-owner David Gold saying that England goalkeeper Robert Green is available. The 29-year-old has one year left on hi Hammers contract and the Upton Park outfit don’t want him to run down his contract and leave on a free.
Villa have been linked with Green before and with Brad Friedel approaching 40 years of age, it might make sense?
Oh and on the manager merry-go-round, the Mirror are saying that Liverpool will make a formal approach for Fulham boss Roy Hodgson this week, which should stop the speculation over Martin O’Neill.
