Ha, a bit of transfer talk today.

The Mirror have Alex McLeish quashing the rumours on the silly social media sites saying Darren Bent will be sold in Janaury.

McLeish said: “It is utter nonsense. It is a phenomenon of the modern world – Twitter and Facebook – and it is not my world.”

According to TalkSport Villa are after 22-year-old Hamburg right-back Dennis Diekmeier but apparently have to have a fight with Roma first? I`ll let you know if the fight will be televised, sounds good to me.

The German U20 international is said to be valued at around £6million.

Finally, The People say that Steve Bruce wants Charles N`Zogbia for Sunderland. The article says that Bruce thinks he knows how to get the best out of the player who has thus far, not impressed at Villa and also says that they`d need to pay around £15m for the player we paid £9.5m for. Hmmm, not convinced at that!

A Wearside source told Hotline: “Steve Bruce signed N`Zogbia for Wigan and knows he can get the best out of him.”

So far we have:
