Only snippet today on transfer deadline day so far is in The Mirror. I`ll try to keep us updated through the day but must admit I don`t expect to be over busy. We live in hope.

Last night we had Wayhey Transfer Gossip with Bent being linked to Stoke and Yacouba Sylla, a defensive midfielder, for £1.75million being linked in.

Today we are being linked with Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones who was on his way to Swansea before his wage demands ended the move.

He has 5 goals in 19 for Stoke this season. Hmmm. Do we need that sort of ratio? I don`t think so.

Obviously if Stoke want Bent, there is the obvious chance of a swap? But would Bent really see Stoke as a decent move? Wouldn`t be surprised if he stays at Villa and then assess his options in the summer when he is sure to depart.

James Nursey of the Mirror also says that Villa want 27-year-old Porto defender Rolando. Apparently he is available on loan. QPR are also interested.
