Anybody have any news on potential takeover or investment?


1.) 27 Jun 2018 16:51:21
It's close. Xia wants to keep some sort of stake but the only way he can get good money is full sale. 3 parties are in 2 have put offers forward.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 20:31:01
Anyone have any news that isn't in all the media posts available?



27 May 2016 16:59:00
Sources close to the club are telling me that Adama, Vertout, Ayew and Amavi are going nowhere - The club will listen to offers for Gueye but will only sell if their price is me, 10M I'm let to believe.


1.) 27 May 2016 18:18:30
But doesn't he have a reported 7 1m release clause.

2.) 27 May 2016 18:32:01
All those players are for sale and all of them have told the club that they want to leave.

Any credible source close to the club will have confirmed that.

3.) 27 May 2016 18:51:24
No one will know anything only player whose come out and said they want to leave is Okore the rest haven't spoken so keep guessing or speaking to the imaginary friends that you claim are ITK.

4.) 27 May 2016 18:57:08
€10m is approx £7.1m.

5.) 27 May 2016 22:01:45
Lots of people know that those players want to leave, the agents have been touting their names around for weeks.



26 May 2016 13:27:23
Hearing Aston Villa's new manager will almost certainly be RDM. Some of the players I have heard mentioned include Cyrus Christie, Ruben Loftus Cheek and Danny Ings - Also RDM wants to maintain as many of the current squad players as possible, hopefully this means the likes of Amavi, Gueye and Ayew will remain at the club - Departures for Lescott and Agbonlahor expected for non footballing reasons.


1.) 26 May 2016 13:43:36
No way Danny ings no way he would want to keep current squad pmsl dreamer.

2.) 26 May 2016 14:08:27
Totally agree, only reporting what I've been told - I don't think RLC would come either but maybe these are the calibre of players we are looking at!

3.) 26 May 2016 14:10:33
And by current squad I mean the likes of Gueye, Vertout, Gil, Ayew, Amavi etc. The likes of Richardson, Richards, Nzogbia etc etc are all being let go, or so I'm told anyway!

4.) 26 May 2016 14:48:21
roberto di matteo it probably is but don't rule out Neil warnock. I've been told he has met dr xia s people and that's the main reason he did not continue at Rotherham. and if you like a flutter at 25/ 1 I'd stick a cheeky 10er on. I've been told a few players we have been looking at include tielemans embolo and sule. all great young players that if we were still in prem would be great but I'd be shocked if any come to us in championship.

{Ed001's Note - Tielemans? Embolo? Sule? You wouldn't have a chance of them in the Prem, let alone in the Championship! You are back to form again.}

5.) 26 May 2016 15:02:34
Yeah I think those are a little far fetched KingVilla - These are too young players, particularly Tielemans!

6.) 26 May 2016 15:07:54
I've stated I don't think we have a chance if you read the post mate lol. just a few names we have looked at.

7.) 26 May 2016 15:11:28
Villa scouted tielemans 7 times last season however that was when we were a prem side,

{Ed001's Note - and were told there was no chance of him joining.}

8.) 26 May 2016 15:17:09
don't know what point you trying to make Ed. all I've said is we have looked at these players. I also stated I feel no chance!

{Ed001's Note - the point is it is pointless even naming them. May as well name Neymar, Messi and Suarez.}

9.) 26 May 2016 15:31:01
no Ed the players I've stated we were scouting all of last season so who is talking unrealistic now lol . Messi Neymar I wish. as I said in 1st post no chance in this league but who knows next summer!

10.) 26 May 2016 15:35:41
Look Ed001 - what you know full well is that those players would beg to play for a club like Villa if we were prem top half, you negative lot make it sound like its thé club regardless of position! Do you think those players would go to Liverpool if they had five miserable years then relegation?! Of course not is the answer.

{Ed001's Note - they are looking for a Champions League team actually, not a top half team.}

11.) 26 May 2016 15:38:31
Youre clearly from Small Heath park Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - you really are a moron if that is the kind of idiotic reply that you come up with. If you were intelligent enough to use your brain, you would have done the obvious thing and looked at my profile to see which team I support. As if I would have red as my avatar if I was a blue nose!}

12.) 26 May 2016 16:42:56
^^^^hahaha I nearly wet meself.

13.) 26 May 2016 17:17:07
Kingvilla talking rubbish! Come on people that's harsh.

14.) 26 May 2016 18:43:02
blah blah blah. kingvilla this kingvilla that lol.

{Ed033's Note - You're a rock star now, kingvilla

15.) 26 May 2016 19:24:32
I'm waiting for Kingvilla's next exclusive. John Carver for manager😂.

16.) 26 May 2016 23:52:43
All i am saying, is give peace a chance!

17.) 26 May 2016 18:55:43
Ed01 (Jesus)
Harsh, of course these players want to join villa! We are also looking at Rooney, hart, and bringing in zlatan.
These are facts, and are not desputed!

Come on, ed you know that every player obviously wants to not only not play in champions league, or prem, that they want to play in championship! With a club that has no owner yet, no manager yet, and fans that can't find a positive in anything!
Blindly they obviously want to play in claret and blue, because we wt villa! Lol.

So we can keep the lights on lads :-)

Anybody know how this impacts us from a squad perspective?

Also, please, please replace Bruce!




19 Jul 2018 11:41:30
Ok, Grealish is going, I think we have all accepted that - So what do you all feel is a fair offer for him?

Personally 23M and 2 players on loan would be the minimum I'd expect - Perhaps Marcus Edwards and Juan Foyth?

What are your thoughts?


1.) 19 Jul 2018 13:23:42
30mill cash only minimum.

2.) 19 Jul 2018 14:58:05
Perhaps now we aren't under as much pressure we can command that fee now? If so, does that all but clear our FFP issues meaning we can keep the core of the team and get rid of Bruce?



09 Jul 2018 20:10:25
Well the comments from Steve Bruce have really depressed me! Looks like wholesale departures, we are in MASSIVE trouble!




07 Jul 2018 19:59:09
I'm not a fan of loaning players unless they are better than what we have in our academy and will improve the team but. We should do everything we can to sign Harry Wilson from Liverpool, he was imense last year for Hull and has started pee season in terrific! Wilson on the right, Green on the left, terrifying!




17 Jun 2018 00:11:31
So, seems to have gone a little quiet on all fronts so, what are people's anticipated 11 at the beginning of the season? I'm being super optimistic and including Grealish (back on loan) and Chester (retained) - I say optimistic, you may say foolish ;-)


Hutton, Chester, Huth, xxxxx

Bjarnason, Hourihane

Xxxxxxx, Grealish, Green



1.) 17 Jun 2018 06:49:57
BK1982-not foolish fella, rightly optimistic, sorry to burst your bubble but apart from Hutton, (huth? pantillimon? ), every other player on your list will be gone if the right price comes in, needless to say some of the worthless fecks will scarper for the sake of 'their career'even though their on good sheckles, the only thing stopping it from happening at the moment is that we're rudderless (what a blessing! ), so keep the faith and i hope your right, but the agents are in overdrive touting their players to all and sundrae, so next season i'd expect a nuthouse special, -a mixture of the youth that's left, old stagers for a last hurrah, problem players other clubs don't want and the customary cheap foreign mercenaries, welcome to the new world, but that's what'll make it all the more sweeter when we turn the corner and start the accent-hearts and mind boys, hearts and minds-VTID-and then i'll be back to haunt the fecks who crossed us-UTV!

2.) 17 Jun 2018 09:42:02
It's scary times Class but the entire squad cannot be sold, surely not? If that's the case then we will be relegated by Christmas! I think there will be sacrifices, perhaps to key players but surely we will try to maintain the core of the squad?

I can see Grealish being sold, fingers crossed with a loan back - Perhaps Adomah if the price is right as we have a ready made replacement in Green! Those two sales would surely ease any FFP pressures?

Of course there are the current cashflow issues hanging over the club but if we can get see inward investment I'm sure these will be resolved - If we can't of course then yes there will be more player sales :- (.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 17:28:17
Hi all this is my 1st post and it's a realistic one IMO people need to wake up and realise that super Jack will be sold 100% and come on guys teams do not loan back 22/ 23 year old players this may be the case with kids but Jack is ready to play in premier league now. Sorry guys but we need to sell him for the good of the club 30+ million would be much welcomed and would secure the future of our club I know it's feels rubbish but I think we'll all agree the club is more important than one player.

4.) 17 Jun 2018 20:31:47
If disagree that Jack is ready to play for some of the top teams AVFC78 - He was outstanding this season but he only played what, half at most? And prior to that he was certainly a talent rather than the complete player, for me he needs another year playing every week for Villa - I fear if he moves to a Chelsea, or even a Spurs, he may get lost in the crowd! I love the kid, he's an amazing player but he's had 6 months of top form, in the championship, so I wouldn't be surprised if Villa could negotiate an additional year on loan as part of any sale! Totally agree though, he will be sold, my hope is that his sale along with some fringe players will mean we can keep the rest of the squad together.

5.) 17 Jun 2018 21:40:33
I don't disagree with you mate I just think whoever buys him will keep him there's no way anyone will pay 30+ million for him just to give him back to us, now if we sell him for 15/ 20 million we may get somebody give us a year but I doubt it. I just think we need to sell him for the good of the club let's cash in now because like you pointed out he has only played consistently well for 6 months and nobody knows how he will go next season although I do think he his the real deal and could be a big star in the prem next season.

Kingy, what you hearing? Any others in contention?

Would still need to sell players to comply with FFP but, and correct me if I'm wrong, we have until next year to resolve that? I still expect Jack to go but his sale will surely clearly the majority of our FFP issues along with the drop in wages from Terry/ Snodgrass and the sale of fringe players?

The Henry rumour was taken from a French site which mentioned Villa and John Terrys former club, Henry will not be Villa manager, please give your head a wobble.

This is a depressing state of affairs.

If the rumours that Xia is rejecting investment and / or pricing the club out of a sale are true then that is extremely worrying - The experiment / gamble didn't pay off so surely he needs to sell, living month to month is not sustainable.

Would people accept a season of stabilization under new ownership? If the club is sold I would personally love to see a clearing of the decks, a fire sale of the deadwood (and Grealish sadly to fix our FFP issues) and the promotion of youth under an upcoming and tactical manager with a view to promotion next year.

And for the record I'm not advocating McCormack plays instead of our kids, purely that he should be involved in the squad. If you said to me, this is the team for next year and we will survive by one point I'd bite your hand off because we would be mush better equipped to launch an assault the following year, sadly with Bruce in charge that will never happen.

Where are the goals coming from mort13? We have lost Grabban and Snodgrass already, that's 14 goals and 15 assists, give or take? We may lose Adomah and Kodjia, that's another 30 goals over the past 2 seasons, minimum. Our most creative player is leaving, that's 100%. I'm just curious where people see the goals coming from?

We aren't in a position to shelve a player because of previous indiscretions - The entire squad needs a clean slate, from Richards to McCormack, because we are in a dire situation and it's only going to get worse.

When fit he scores goals for fun Classof82! With having already lost Snodgrass, Grealish is on his way, and Kodjia and Adomah both linked with moves away that is a lot of goals and assists we need to replace. I agree with Malc1976, I don't think we have the luxury of turning our noses up and a goal scorers like McCormack, regardless of attitude.

Really all depends on who we sell and who we sign, as obvious as that sounds - I still think, as it stands, Villa have one of the strongest squads in the division.

We all know that Jack Grealish will be sold, its a sad fact but he will leave - I hope / think he will be the only MAJOR sale and if that is the case, promotion is still a viable achievement.

With Jack I can see Gardener, De Leat, Bunn, Samba, Richards, McCormack and MAYBE Adomah being sold / released. If this is the case our FFP concerns should be eased dramatically without, Jack aside, dramatically impacting the squad. A few shrewd free transfers and loan signings coupled with the injection of our talented youth and we will still have a strong squad. Now this may be wishful thinking but this team would certainly challenge for playoffs?
