Paul Lambert has confirmed that Villa are in talks with Karim El Ahmadi an Feyenoord.
After the 27 year old Moroccan took to the press earlier to talk about the negotiations between the clubs and what a chance it would be for him to move to Villa, Paul Lambert is also now quoted by Talksport as saying:
‘We’re in talks at this moment, those talks are ongoing and we hope to reach a positive conclusion with Feyenoord and the player. Karim is a player who I feel could definitely improve our squad. He has experience of big club football and also at international level. He can pass the ball well and he could be an important player for us. Let’s see how things progress, we’re very hopeful.’
Nice to see the transfer action starting to hot up now!
Must admit I now very little about the player, but he’s the right age, and from Lambert’s summation of him he’s the right type of player and would fill a defensive role that is lacking amongst our current midfielders.
A good player to protect the defence leaving more attack minded midfielders to actually venture up the pitch.
The thought of attacking football….I’m hungry.
