The press are linking Villa with Tottenham Hotspur and Croatian attacking midfielder Niko Kranjcar. Monaco are also being linked to the 26-year-old who the press say is rated around £8m.
The Daily Mail say that 31-year-old Villa striker John Carew will weigh up options and listen to other options before deciding on his Aston Villa future. Carew can leave on a free this coming summer and hasn’t agreed a new deal with Villa. Will they offer him one? Not convinced they will to be honest.
He said: ‘I`m in a very comfortable position. The spell at Villa has been fantastic and I have enjoyed myself in England, but I will now see what opportunities and challenges turn up.’
I’d think he will be off, he’s drifted from club to club throughout his career and at 31 can get one more big pay day by moving?
Sami Mokbel at The Daily Star says that Nigel Hokey-Cokey
is interesting Turkish giants Galatasaray who is also available on a free this summer. As the report states and you’ll already know, all players who can leave in the summer are able to talk to other clubs from January and can sign pre-contract agreements with foreign clubs. Starsport says that they ‘understand’ approaches have already been made. Houllier however might have something to say about that as he might be looking to offer the midfielder a new contract.
Would you offer NRC a contract? I would, still only 26 and plenty more to come from him surely?
