Aston Villa have made their first signing, albeit on loan.

Villa have sealed the loan until the end of the season for Manchester United right-back Phil Bardsley.

The 21-year-old Salford lad will be able to make his debut against Watford on January 20 at Villa Park.

  • Agree, and I hope the future fee has been agreed upfront, coz if he plays well for us his value could rocket.

  • It’ll do for now. More players will be available in August. I’ll echo the comments about Hughes tho… i like him personally but he doesn’t fill me with confidence of any sort at the moment.

  • One problem position taken care of, although possibly only temporarily. We couldn’t allow that right full back position to continue as was though, so welcome aboard Mr Bardsley.

  • I’d be happy with the following come 1 Feb. Sorenson, Bardsley, Laursen, Mellberg, Barry, SWP, McCann, Petrov, Young, Smith, Gabby.

  • I really cant see this SWP thing happening and where did the Bellamy story come from there appears to be no substance in it at all 9m? why has his value gone up 3m?

  • The bellamy story came from the same place as all the other stories and thats the rumour mill. Unless it comes from MON’s mouth then everything else is rumours

  • Certainly has similarities to the Milner deal. There is no mention of any future fee involved, which would be naieve to say the least. I think this could be a demonstration of the difficulty MON is having getting clubs to sell their best players in January. I’m a little concerned that the Wright-Phillips interest seems to be a loan move too. He’s talking to West Ham, so he’s available on a permenant deal. Let’s pay the money and get him
