Well, well, well. No action all summer then all of a sudden a flurry of rumours and reports in the press.

The Mirror claim that Martin O’Neill has £30million to spend and one of his targets is out of favour Spurs striker Jermain Defoe. The report claims Villa will make a £9million offer for the England International. Defoe surely can’t be happy on the bench at Spurs and the arrival of Berbatov and return signing of Mido could well push the young forward further down in the pecking order.

The 23-year-old might just be looking for a move to push his England credentials and now Villa have the best manager in the country, why not Villa?

Our friends over at Vital Spurs say: Villa Having A Laugh Surely?

  • The whole point of signing Mido though was so Spurs have 4 good strikers, so move along Villa. You’ve been big again for 5 mins, so dont get your hopes up. COYS

  • Jol wants 4 strikers (his words) so I doubt he’ll go guys.

    Also just bought a large house in Chigwell and is happy down south.

    Still, you have money to burn but I can’t see it being used till the Jan window.

  • Is Defoe likely to swap the streets that are paved with gold for a life in a deprived and economically decimated hell hole off the M6. Is he likely to want to swap playing with the talents of King, Keane, Robinson, Lennon and Berbatov for the journeyman h

  • Not 100% sure about this one. 1 goal in 17 England games! Spurs reserve striker! £9 Million??? Might be worth a punt at £3-4 million. I would rather see a young up and coming target man to give Angel some competition. In Baros, Moore and Agbonlahor we hav

  • another link is: Lyon winger Sidney Govou who has been told he can leave Lyon if the right offer arrives and has been a long-term target for Fulham boss Chris Cocomes along. The Times say Villa and Villarreal are after him.

  • So Spurs are buying Mido so they have 4 good strikers??? Who are the other 3 going to be then?? Maybe they are just jealous that they have not got as much home grown British talent in their team. Moore, Whittingham, Agbonlahor, Barry, Samuel, Davis, Gardn

  • how come spurs fans always flood our board when we are linked with one of theyre players? RZZN tottenham only have been big again for 1 season so dont get your hopes asp you havent started too well this season have you?

  • ‘Is Defoe likely to swap the streets that are paved with gold for a life in a deprived and economically decimated hell hole off the M6.” How dare he talk about Wolverhampton like that!

  • Voicefromthehole- Wher ehave your homegrown talet got you so far? Dancing on the prem trap door. O Neil is good but even he can’t polish a t*rd. O Neil can’t spend that money till randy actually gets the club so forget this window sunshine. By January you

  • This will never happen as I am sure Man Ure would sweep in with a better offer than that. Spurs need to enjoy their 1 season-itus before reality sinks back in.

    Centre back first please.

  • Defoe who? Defoe the player your manager wants idiot!

    Berbatove Keane , Defoe and Mido. Are you saying they’re crap!?

    Most teams would kill for players like that and would walk into Villa no probs!

  • Poor old Villa supporters – don’t take your anger out on us! Your crap and you have been for a long long time – how the hell Martin O’Neill was hoodwinked into going to the ***** tip Birmingham I don’t know! As for the British talent….have another look

  • 1 season-itus! lol

    Well, enjoy another season of nothing and next year, who knows, you may even be playing B’ham in the Chumpionship?

  • Would prefer Saviola to Defoe (cheaper and proven at the highest level) and then buy a target man as competition for Angel. Strike force would then be Angel, Target Man, Saviola, Baros, and this would then allow Moore & Abonglahor to be nurtured a bit mo

  • Defoe’s a greedy so-and-so, he’s talented enough but MON could make him a team player. not for 9 mill though.

  • Isn’t it sad, god put 6million people in the London area the he gives them all a speech impediment.

    You *******s will be so sorry in 12 months time when your looking up at us.

  • Smarties probably go well with Coca-Cola. When blues can hang on to a player like heskey we will maybe take note. These are premiership matters you would not understand so please leave us alone.
