Pretty sure the transfer talk at the moment is wide of the mark as I think that Alex McLeish will be on his bike.

The Birmingham Mail say that Paul Faulkner has been in USA this week with Randy Lerner and they both fly back to face showdown talks with McLeish next week.

Only one thing to say after this season one would assume. No matter what Sir Alex Chewalot says – and if he likes Eck that much, maybe be could make way for him at Man Utd? – the game is all about results and we`ve not got the results to warrant keeping him.

Anyway, just for completeness, we have some transfer links.

The Sun say Villa are after Leon Best and Danny Simpson from Newcastle United.

Apparently Simpson has angered the Toon by not agreeing a new deal and Best has fallen down the pecking order.

The Telegraph have similar but they have added midfielder Danny Guthrie into the mix. He is available on a Bosman.

Tell you one I`d still take a ‘gamble` on is Jermain Defoe from Spurs who was linked with Reading today!
