According to the Express & Star today Spurs and England keeper Paul Robinson would like to move to Villa Park.

The Tottenham keeper, who had a howler last season for club and country, has been linked with a White Hart Lane exit and has often been linked to Villa, especially since we haven’t taken up the option to sign Scott Carson from Liverpool.

Villa currently only have former Arsenal keeper Stuart Taylor to go between the sticks as Thomas Sorensen has now been released.

According to the report Middlesbrough are also keen on the 28-year-old but Robinson would prefer a move to Villa Park and the chance of European football.

There are now quotes to the story, not even a ‘source close to the player’, so hey ho!

Must admit, despite falling out of favour and having what looked like a crisis of confidence, there is no way he has all of a sudden become a bad keeper so maybe a change would be as good as a rest for him. At his age he is still hitting his peak surely?

Another report claim that both Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur are watching Robert Green’s situation at West Ham.
