With a free weekend, there was always going to be something to fill the headlines as the January transfer window is set to tick into the final week, but speculation linking Aston Villa with a move for almost forgotten Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Victor Wanyama, make no sense at all.

The 28-year-old Kenyan international has proven his worth at Premier League level previously during his time with Southampton and Spurs, but with injuries hitting him heavily in the last few seasons, his game time isn’t great and he’s only featured four times for the London club so far this season – with his last appearances coming on December 11.

Reports this week have suggested we are interested in bolstering midfield further with a move for him, although the information offered isn’t very specific and it’s not even stated whether our interest would be permanent or loan based.

But given his game time, and the fact that he almost signed for Club Brugge as Marvelous Nakamba’s replacement over the summer, I just don’t see how this has legs at all, but I might be alone in that.

Whatever fans think of the arrival of Danny Drinkwater on his loan spell, surely we are spending the final week of the window looking at a second striker, not another body for the middle of the park.
