Not much in the way of Villa gossip today, the News Of The World say that Shaun Wright-Phillips will return to Manchester City for £10m, Villa did at one point try to get him on loan or bring him to Villa Park permanently depending on which reports you believe, so whether MON will go back in for him remains to be seen.

The Red top also claims there is a three way battle for Liverpool striker Peter Crouch between Portsmouth, Villa and Newcastle. They claim Crouch will move for around £6m and that Pompey are winning the race at the moment. Quite how they would know that remains a mystery!

The Sunday People claim that Roman Abramovich will give Avram Grant or whoever the Chelsea boss is for the start of next season, £100m to go after who he wants and they mention Villa skipper Gareth Barry along with Atletico Madrid’s Sergio Aguero and Lyon’s Karim Benzema.

The Sunday Express say that Martin O’Neill was in Germany to assess Bayern Munich’s experienced Belgian defender Daniel van Buyten. Only 2 more Bayern players to be linked and we’ll have the full set won’t we?!
