The agent of Villa striker Luke Moore has dismissed reports linking the 21-year-old with a move away from Villa Park.

His agent, Steve Kutner, told Sky Sports:

‘We have not heard anything. He’s actually already back training at Villa following his shoulder problems. He is looking to be in perfect condition for the new season.’

Adding: ‘The only plans Luke has at the moment is getting 100 per cent fit.’

Lukey boy has just one year left on his contract, no doubt that will soon be sorted.

  • Good lad delighted to hear it,all we need is the Davis situation to be sorted now.On Vital Fulham their complaining that 5 mil is a rip off for him!

  • he is a natural finisher and very calm and collected on the ball, i can see why other clubs would be interested, but i think mon is know where near stupid enough to let such a talent go.

  • Like Davis he’ll be waiting to see how the land lies after pre-season, all players want a run of games in the team.

  • The last thing MO’N would want to do is to sell the soul of our playing squad… i.e. sell our best youngsters. We are proud of our youth policy, and require role model’s for youngsters to aspire to in our 1st team squad. As for Moore, he showed in the beginning and towards the end of last season, that he is more than just a useful substitute, and even during this period, the lads shoulder would pop-out every now and again. A fully fit, strong Luke Moore, has the potential of making big noises in years to come – but it will be the next 6 months that determine whether or not these noises will be heard at The Villa or elsewhere? Show the correct attitude and the desire and hunger, both on and off the field Luke – bottom line is He’s going nowhere!!

  • best natural goalscorer in years to come through at Villa, he will be worth 10 Million plus end of next season , we would regret this more then any other move in years to come if we let him go.
    Davis for 5 million again is pants will be worth far more in a year , goalscoring midfielders not exactly in abundance

  • Luke has been told that his attitude must be 100%, both on and off the pitch. If it is, he has a future at the club. We know that he has the talent. If he was to be sold we can take it as read that his attitude off the pich was the deciding factor. That decision is up to Luke. The fans nor M’ON can do any more. Luke is in the position that 99.99% of Villa fans can only dream of, it would be a shame if he was to blow it.

  • Great news if Luke stays. I don’t think a move away from VP to somewhere like Boro would do Moore’s career much good anyway. Better for him to work with a top-top manager and top-top quality players at a top-top club.

  • It’s not about the club or MON being stupid in letting someone go. Football is about skill and passion but none of that is worth anything if a player?s attitude isn’t right. Both Moore and Davis have proved they have the footballing ability and all MON has done is laid down the gauntlet to them to prove they have the attitude and desire to want to play for the Villa and fight for their places in the squad. I for one am happy at that situation and if either of them think they are bigger and better than rising to the challenge why should we be losing sleep over the noises being made by their agents or other clubs in wanting to sign them. First team football needs to be earnt, not given to you.

  • If he gets in the first team on a regular basis I think with his health problems behind him he might just reach 20 for us next season.

  • hoss you were spot on . hope he’s up to the challenge cos i think he has the talent

  • I don’t think any of us want to see Luke leave, but his attitude has to be right, both for his own sake and that of the team. I think MON is an accomplished man manager and has told Luke the score, now its up to him to knuckle down, sort himself out and show him what he can do. I repeat, none of us want to see him leave, but if his going, in MON’s opinion, is for the good of the TEAM, then so be it. No player is bigger than the club and no ego should stand in the way of the success of Aston Villa.

  • I think Luke Moore given the proper opportunity will go to the very top. I would be gutted if we sold him for £10 million plus Michael Owen for free in return. Luke is the man

  • Luke know where his bread is buttered, again I think it will be a case of players beleiving their own press and demanding to be played in the first team. I think MON is well man enough to keep Luke in his place.

  • Make or break season for Luke. He can no longer be considered up and coming, he has to really step up to the plate.

  • Slightly off topic I know, but I find it very difficult to fully comprehend why Luke is not out there performing with the England under 21 side. O.K., he missed a decent chunk of the season, but this lad is a natural finisher, and as a nation we are not blessed with too many of those-at any level.
