Thomas Sorensen has lost interest in Villa.

That said, it looks like Villa lost interest in Sorensen a good while back as he is now 3rd in line for the place between the sticks.

The Denmark goalkeeper said he wouldn’t sign even if he was offered a new deal. No sweat there Thommo, no new contract is set to be offered I’d presume!

‘I am simply not interested anymore. They have shown that they have no interest whatsoever to invest in me. Even if O’Neill personally offered me a new contract tomorrow I wouldn’t sign it. Martin O’Neill decided to recruit a new goalkeeper when I was injured. He then told me during a meeting that I shouldn’t take my spot for granted. The press exaggerated what had been said and that upset him. But I can’t believe that that would be a reason to punish me this way’.

‘At this point I am open to all suggestions. If somebody shows me a contract, I will sign it, no matter what the offer is. But at the same time, I don’t want to play temporarily for some Japanese club either.’

That last line is a bit baffling. I’d sign anything on offer. And yet he won’t sign for Villa and he has ruled out Japan. Does that not suggest he won’t sign anything no matter what is offered?! I might get down to Bodymoor Heath tomorrow, put a contract in front of him and see if I can get him to sign it. He can be a journo on this site, he always seems to have a lot to say!

Must admit I don’t think he is as bad a keeper as some Villa fans seem to say, so surely a decent enough offer will come his way?
