So the transfers aren`t just rumours now, we are actually agreeing fees and getting people!!! Bit different to the windows under previous managers, looks like Paul Lambert likes to get on with things!

It appears that Jores Okore is close to signing. As reported last night Aalborg have confirmed that Nicklas Helenius has been given permission to come to Birmingham, despite a fee not yet being officially agreed. Negotiation talks are progressing well, but the actual fee has yet to receive official agreement, but the fact they are allowing the player to come over shows it can’t be far off.

Leandro Bacuna who plays for Dutch club FC Groningen is the name that is starting to gain a bit of traction transfer to Villa wise. Apparently even SkySports have now picked up on it.

There isn`t much detail at the moment, but a bit of talk in our transfer thread backs up the recent whispers: Click Here

“This new link to Bacuna is interesting. He appears to be a player who can play central midfield, off the front man or out wide. Hell he’s even filled in at right-back on occasions. But anyway i found an article with comments from him and his agent when he was linked with Reading a few months back..It’s translated from Dutch to English.

He scored five goals last season and I’d guess he’s a ‘Gareth Barry’ type. Played out wide at times but is better in central midfield where he can dictate the play. He’s also played in the attacking midfield role for the Dutch u21’s too so clearly the top brass see his future as more central than out wide too.”

See second goal, 3m30s
