Oh great, there might be some good news to cheer us long suffering Villa fans later in the week!

According to the Express and Star Villa’s chances of signing Newcastle winger James Milner could be ‘clearer by the end of the week.’

The report says that Newcastle want to sort the situation with Wigan apparently also waiting in the wings to buy the 20-year-old who spent all of last season on loan at Villa.

The more I read this report the less substance I see in it actually to be optimistic! 🙁

It is simply stated that Milner has yet to meet Newcastle’s boss Glenn Roeder adding that Milner has been told to return for pre-season training with the Magpies on July 4th.

  • well it looks like he might go to wigan after all this, looks like uve blown ure chance

  • You’re forgetting green giant that the only manager Milner wants to play for is O’Leary…apparently!

  • Just cant understand why we havent tested the water by putting a bid in. Whats the problem? Why are we dragging our feet? Have we decided (Ellis/Stride) that we dont want/need him?

  • if u we dont hurry up we wont get milner because going to be reporting for pre season traning soon so ellis just give oleary the money and stop messing about
