One of the more bizarre links I’ve spotted for Aston Villa’s potential January transfer business has been an old rumour mill favourite – Besiktas’s Domagoj Vida.

The rumours popped up yesterday when it came to Villa and rather predictably they came from Turkish Football, and unless I’m having one of my moments, from browsing around Vitalfootball as I do, I believe they have linked him with almost guaranteed moves to about 200 sides over the last three transfer windows.

Many may remember the Croatian centre-half from his looks and the 2018 World Cup and he’s certainly a rugged, physical type of player, and ignoring the fact this is simply Villa’s turn to feature amongst the speculation, that’s exactly why the report is utter nonsense.

He’s not a Dean Smith type of player and moreover, even allowing for Tyrone Mings’ injury, do we really need another defender stockpiled?

The reaction on social media was typical and I simply can’t disagree – and had it not gained such a reaction, this is the type of rumour I just laugh at – this will only get worse as January nears folks.

You're Not Falling For This One Are You?
