There wasn’t a great deal of gossip around today and to be fair, I’ve had this lot ready to write all day and kinda forgot! Must admit I’m getting slightly bored of rumours, I think it is time for action!

According to his agent, Villa and Tottenham are after Sampdoria’s Argentinean defender Hugo Campagnaro. Remember, this is an agent talking so he might just be trying to get attention for his client! He said: ‘The negotiations with Juve are moving forward, but I must add that I plan a trip to England to consider the offers of some clubs. Aston Villa, Tottenham and a top club seem concerned.’ Aston Villa, Tottenham AND a top club. Sod off, Aston Villa and Tottenham ARE top clubs, show some respect !

And you can tell the transfer window is now well and truly open because once again we’ve been linked to Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips. Yes, the same SWP that we nearly got last time on loan, the same one that has said recently he wants to see out his contract at Stamford Bridge. The report says that we’d be prepared to pay around £8million for him.

The same report also says Villa are again looking at former Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann who is available on a free.

Another report says that Roy Kean wants to take Shaun Maloney to Sunderland for a fee of around £4million. Errrm, can we seriously allow another player to leave? I don’t think so!

Oh and more reports that a host of clubs want Marlon Harewood with the stories picking up on The Hare’s agents comments that he is looking to stay at Villa UNLESS we bring in another top striker. BRING IN? You mean sign someone??? Never!!!!!!! Apparently his value is around £4million

Lets hope next week brings us some positive action and a few players incoming eh?!
