Villa in talks with Crewe over midfielder Ashley Westwood…… Presumably Dale Stevens deal going cold!

#AVFC aborted interest in #CAFC Dale Stephens this am as Charlton were asking too much. Now Crewe’s midfielder Ashley Westwood coming

James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey
#AVFC waiting for formal OK from Genk to then snap up striker Christian Benteke. Compromise after offered 7mill & Genk asked for 15m

Excited by #avfc transfer dealings – like many I am concerned they may leave themselves short on Prem experience, but excited nonetheless

Crewe captain Ashley Westwood close to completing £2 million move to #avfc Click Here

From Belgium to Brummagem: Christian Benteke is now on his way to (hopefully) seal a deal with Villa, I’m led to believe #avfc

Mat Kendrick‏@MatKendrick
Doing the rounds already, but Crewe captain Ashley Westwood has surged to the front of the queue in #avfc search for a new midfielder

Good point one:

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Man U have just signed a midfielder from Crewe, although I appreciate they have also just signed Robin Van Persie!

Good point two:

Mat Kendrick‏@MatKendrick
I remember another midfielder Aston Villa signed from Crewe – he was a bit lacking in top flight experience though #platty

Villa fans seem to be split between ‘excited’, ‘cautiously optimistic, but still a little concerned’ and ‘ We’re ‘dooooooooooooooooooooomed’
