Talksport are linking Villa midfielder (apparently) Steve Sidwell with a move to West Ham. Ok, ta`ra a bit! No flesh on the bones of the story but there you go, a link. Think it is fairly obvious he`ll be linked with all and sundry as he isn`t in the Villa`s plans.

The Daily Mail return to the Robbie Keane link … yawn … and also 31-year-old West Ham striker Frederic Piquionne. The paper say the cash strapped Hammers need to sell a few players with Carlton Cole being valued at around £10m and Piquionne at £4.5m.

The Mirror say that this lot are being allowed to leave Manchester City, wonder if any will interest Villa?! SWP, Given and Santa Cruz have all been linked to us before. Anyway, the paper claims Joleon Lescott, Wayne Bridge, Shay Given, Roque Santa Cruz, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Emmanuel Adebayor are all set to depart.

Not the most exciting links at the moment but hey, don`t shoot the messenger!
