A tale of two strikers here!
According to quotes in the Sunday Mercury, Villa’s bright prospect striker Nathan Delfouneso might look for a loan move next season to get first team experience.
Sounds an ideal solution if Villa do push on with a new striker (or can I be greedy and say … or two?) in the summer. There is no way they’ll sell the Fonz but at his age, he isn’t quite ready for a regular spot in the first team just yet and sitting on the bench of making just the odd appearance must be very frustrating.
Fonzy says it will be up to the manager adding, ‘I’ll just trust his decision and I believe that being here is better for my development, after all he obviously knows what he’s doing.’
Meanwhile, this link will keep coming I would think. Villa, according to the Sunday Mail, are lining up a £10million bid for Spurs striker Robbie Keane who is currently on loan to Celtic.
No quotes, so maybe just a report putting 2+2 but it wouldn’t surprise me, not often quality like that is available and we so need a striker. I know some think he is over the hill but I can’t see how + he can play as an attacking midfielder as well + knows where the goal is and isn’t afraid to shoot.
Shame we can’t nick Darren Bent as well and really have a strike force able to take on the top four challenge!
