Interesting article on another website suggesting one of the reasons why Abraham has not moved anywhere yet is due to his wage demands apparently he is on £50k a week at Chelsea but is looking for £130k a week from any potential new employer. I can't see us paying that kind of money for someone who is not the first choice number 9. The other thing the article covered was the size of Jack's fee their view is that the fee is not £100 million up front but £75 million with £25 million in add ins.


1.) 04 Aug 2021 16:52:28
Villajohn I have seen this and if you have a look at what I have posted the reports seem to be wrong if jack was in Manchester why was he at training this morning something smells fishy and I don’t mean the tuna sandwich I’m about to eat. Also with everything Johan Lange has done I can’t see him settling for a deal like that.

2.) 04 Aug 2021 18:05:26
Rob, reported in Manchester that he has recently arrived by private plane with medical in the morning.

3.) 04 Aug 2021 18:22:12
Just seen it. Thank F it’s all over now. Hope he goes on to sit on their bench. Time for us to get the right players in and not Cantwell don’t think he’s worth all the hype around him.

4.) 06 Aug 2021 08:31:26
I'm sure his contract release was 100m so I doubt the add on bits true.



25 Jul 2021 13:38:52
Looks like the Cantwell rumours are bs Stuart Webber who I think is Norwich's CEO has said they don't want to sell so close to the new season, but they would consider a bid if it was a club record fee. I can't see us paying £30 million plus for a player who only has 12 months left on their contract.


1.) 25 Jul 2021 14:49:46
Yep agree mate, they have said he will cost us more than Buendia, 35+ is the starting point, move on and look elsewhere I say.
If he is unsettled and wants a move, his head will turn, and so will his performances.

2.) 25 Jul 2021 18:37:43
If I’m being honest I’d be underwhelmed if we did sign him. I trust our recruitment and management team, their record speaks for itself. 90% of transfers in recent years have been successes to varying levels, but I’ve never watched Cantwell and thought he was a player ready to go up a level, he gets over hyped because he’s English, I’m guessing but I’m sure El Ghazis last season trumps Cantwells in his prem season.

3.) 26 Jul 2021 09:04:24
Half (no 90%) of the problem trying to track player comings and goings is the BS that is posted out there as clickbait. I don’t think any other sport is plagued with the quantity of dross as football suffers. At best, it is 2+2 assumptions being posted, at worst it is just complete fiction. Perhaps, we should have a vote on the worst sites?

I think the Cantwell story probably is based on a he fact he plays on the left and wears an Alice band, as per JG, and we have dipped into the Norwich well so recently. From the Canaries point of view, why jeopardise their season, when replacements will be hard to source? I can see a similar scenario with McNeil at Burnley. The board have (apparently) indicated they are backing Dyche, albeit with modest funds by PL standards, to strengthen.

Perhaps the best each-way bets lie with Alvarez and Bailey, where both respective clubs want funds. Again, the French sides are in a similar boat, but we don’t seem to have much luck with our deals from that direction.

4.) 27 Jul 2021 12:33:10
If the reporting is true I think Villa should push for for Mcneil rather than Bailey or Alvarez due to Mcneil's experience? Bailey is very exciting and potentially a very good signing, but do we want to be in a position where a player takes months to adjust as with Luiz, Westley so on!? Its always a risk but other clubs seem to get it right and get forein players up to speed, therefore is there an issue in the current Villa coaching/ fittness system?

5.) 27 Jul 2021 20:48:06
I think you make a very good point Dev, I like Mcneil a lot, and I think looking at the bigger picture, he might actually be the better fit, and watching him he has it all.

6.) 01 Aug 2021 12:41:42
McNeil has been reported to have suggested he will need to switch club in order to develop, although not necessarily right now. Burnley do not have a wealth of riches within their squad and will do their very best to keep him. With time quickly running down to the start of the new season, I think this would be a tough nut for Villa to crack - much like JWP.

A Cantwell switch feels as though it might be achieved, but at a very high price. The Euros have cut manoeuvring time down quite markedly. Deals from now on in could well be compromised, particularly by price, if Grealish does decide to jump.



15 Jul 2021 18:05:57
Apparently we have enquired after Danjuma at Bournemouth, no bid just registered an interest. I know his numbers looked quite impressive last season however when I watched games in which he was playing for me he flattered to deceive a little bit, and certainly when compared to Buendia he was definitely second best, personally I think we can do better.


1.) 15 Jul 2021 23:23:39
I guess the question is, is he better than El Ghazi, if the answer is yes then he automatically improves our squad and left wing is perma-reseverved for our Captain anyway so not a priority area. I'd be surprised if there is any truth in this rumour, surely not a priority area?

2.) 16 Jul 2021 16:18:06
Focus seems to have swayed toward the left flank.

Noticed many reporting sites have discovered the Grealish ‘secret release clause’, well possibly. Wasn’t very secret then?

3.) 16 Jul 2021 18:58:13
There isn’t a release clause mate😂.

4.) 16 Jul 2021 21:11:07
Wasnt it confirmed by the club that there is no release clause lads? To be honest I'm sick of the whole situation now, it needs to be resolved one way or another soon as we need to prepare for next season. If Jack is going (which I don't feel is the case) then we need bodies in the door ASAP, the question is who?

5.) 16 Jul 2021 23:14:45
There’s no resolution to it BK there will be speculation until the window closes and it’ll be back in January, just guys trying to sell headlines, the way I see it there’s no substance to it until they submit an offer so no point worrying about it, even if he signs a new deal it won’t guarantee him staying if you remember delph. it would be worse if we didn’t have players good enough for other clubs to want to buy at the end of the day.

6.) 17 Jul 2021 15:18:33
I think if he signs a new contract that puts it to bed until next summer Whack, perhaps naive but I feel a new contract will quell the rumours for 12 months but agree next summer will be the same old nonsense. It's great that we have players of the calibre but we are so reliant on Grealish it would be a massive blow to lose him this summer.

7.) 17 Jul 2021 18:07:47
Agree BK and you have to ask yourself, if Citeh have Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden, why do they need another number ten who could struggle for game time against the other two.

8.) 18 Jul 2021 11:42:56
I think Southgate has done is a huge favour at the euros showing jack what it’s like to have competition for his place and not starting every game, also substituting him, he’s the first name on the team sheet at villa and always will be, he’s the main man he gets so much ball it will be very hard to give up all that. I also think he was much prouder when he lost 2 cup finals with villa than when he lost it with England, maybe it meant more to him having played more or just cause he’s villa born and bred.

9.) 18 Jul 2021 22:12:59
Villa owners do not want or need to sell Jack, and even if he wanted to leave against their wishes he is unlikely to want to force a move from the club he loves!? Also City will need to sell several players within the hext month or so to fund a purchase. It will not happen.



27 Jun 2021 20:45:25
Don't know how reliable caughtoffside are as a news outlet I suspect not very. They are reporting a deal has been in place since the end of the season with City for Jack's transfer at a cost of £88 million!


1.) 27 Jun 2021 21:00:36
Just been reading the report myself Villajohn.
Unsure about their reliability but I am at the stage where I am not too bothered either way.
If he stays, great and if he leaves we will also benefit.
I have never believed a club like Villa should be totally built around one player as that could result in a disaster in the case of long term injury or in this case a transfer out of the club.

2.) 27 Jun 2021 22:18:19
Caughtoffside is completely unreliable the story is nonsense. Like every other supposed news outlet they're trying to sell Grealish and more importantly for them create a frenzy of clicks on their page. I am confident that the Villa owners will stand firm and Jack will not force a move it will not happen.

3.) 28 Jun 2021 02:24:34
Biggest pile of horse manure I’ve every read. it is quiet possible that he might move this year but you can be sure that if it does happen our owners will squeeze every last penny out of the deal, it would take a complete moron to do any kind of a deal like that before the euros, before replacing him and before trying to start a bidding war for him. in NSWE I trust to either put a package together to keep him or absolutely bleed city dry for him.

4.) 28 Jun 2021 08:43:52
They have already offered a huge new packag they want to improve their asset not sell the best part of it. In general pundits, media and opposing fans are having a hard time accepting the fact that Villa is possibly the new City galloping towards the higher leves of the premier league and europe. i'm sure City suffered the same ignorance on their march to the top.

5.) 28 Jun 2021 08:57:02
I wouldn’t be surprised if Caughtoffside were fed this story by a party with a vested financial interest.

I have to say, I am with Aka. I get fed up of the constant Grealish ‘news’. It gets rather boring and seems to completely overshadow the credentials of the rest of the squad.

Tactically, it would be a nonsense to seal a deal before the Euros, where JG’s value might soar. Other media sources, who have been historically close to the club, have agreed nothing more than interest has been shown by City so far. This begs the question, why would such an irregular AV news outlet suddenly know so much more?

6.) 28 Jun 2021 11:15:26
My question is, why is "interest" even a story? Every Villa (sorry Football) fan surely knows City would be interested in signing Grealish? Them and every other big club in world football I'm sure, why is "interest" or "preparing a bid" even news these days. It's clearly agents trying to either encourage Villa to give Jack a nice new contract or start a bidding war, until Jack confirms his intentions I'm trying not to get carried away with all those noise. If he wants to go then we will be well remimbursed, and 88M will not cut it.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with agents or anyone else trying to get one over on Aston Villa. Manchester City are interested in buying Grealish.}

7.) 28 Jun 2021 13:38:08
We know they are interested Ed but surely you can agree that caughtoffside are talkingthrough their backsides on this 1.

{Ed002's Note - You will need to enlighten me, I have no idea what they have said.}

8.) 28 Jun 2021 13:52:08
Of course it is true that City are interested, but respectfully, don't be fooled into thinking that his agent or agents won't be encouraging the sale they stand to make a few million. Realistically and fortunately it will not happen the club will stand firm and Jack is not likely to force a move from the club he loves. Chance of it happening 4 out of 10.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously I am not going to be fooled in to anything. I answered the post that it was "clearly agents" behind all of this - it isn't.}

9.) 28 Jun 2021 13:54:07
Bang on the button BK, totally agree mate.
If any deal is ever done concerning Grealish, it will be at least 100M with add-ons and conditions.

10.) 28 Jun 2021 14:33:01
This will rattle on and on in the media they have to create clicks! Come the begining of the new season Jack will still be a Villa player then the media will turn their attention to the next January window when they will tell us all he will be officially anounced a City player " because their agreed deal with him right now June 2021" is to give Villa the first half of this season! Its all media nonsense.

{Ed002's Note - These posts are really embarrassing.}

11.) 28 Jun 2021 15:06:39
Would you tell us which ones Ed? so that we can respond.

{Ed002's Note - Everyone that thinks that Manchester City has no interest in Grealish and agents are simply whippling things up. Why would you want to respond?}

12.) 28 Jun 2021 15:24:31
I think it's more to do with the £12m difference in reports.
From last year after he signed a new 5year deal it was said and up until Sunday morning, that Man City were launching a £100 for Jack.

All of a sudden it's £88m big chunk of change of a difference PLUS the report said the deal had been agreed since last season - despite him signing a new 5yr contract September 2020.

Look at it this way:
CaughtOffside have never been correct in any of their "exclusive" content.
The reporter Jamie Wilkinson (74 followers) is a die hard Chelski fan and a freelance sports journalist.

Villa are attempting to lure Tammy back at £40m, do you really think he'd come to the villa knowing that Jack is out the door?

NSWE are building a team around Jack, so what's changed in 8mths, don't forget he's been injured Feb to May playing one full 90min.

{Ed002's Note - If Aston Villa want Abraham they need to make an offer and if Chelsea accept it I would think TA would opt for Villa over other options. Aston Villa have also asked Chelsea about the availability of a youngster Tino Livramento.}

13.) 28 Jun 2021 15:59:47
Ed I think most of us Villa fans are well aware that City are interested in Grealish, which top team can ignore his talent.
Its the figures that are the problem.
What we are saying, is that it has to be in excess of 100m, if not they should jog on.
If he played for Liverpool or Man Utd they would want 120M + no question about it.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what people are posting - they are whining about agents and don't seem to understand there is interest.}

14.) 28 Jun 2021 17:17:33
I think you re missing the point being made Ed002, we totally understand the interest from city. What we are saying is that the whole story is being hyped up by agents/ papers. Agents commission being their incentive and papers incentive being click bait/ paper sales. Effectively its both the interest and the media circus making it a big thing.

{Ed002's Note - it is not being hyped by agents or anyone else. It is no difference to any other transfer.}

15.) 28 Jun 2021 18:15:43
Ed, my point wasn't that there is no interest, if you check my previous posts I clearly state that City and every club in world football would be interested in Grealish. My point is, when does "interest" become news when you are talking about a player like Grealish, for me interest is assumed. Now when interest turns into a bid or a transfer then that's news, until then I'll assume there is interest in Grealish and all this "bid accepted" nonsense is agents stirring the pot.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City have declared an interest with Aston Villa. Every other club in the world has not. I am stunned that the Aston Villa fans cannot grasp this.}

16.) 28 Jun 2021 18:27:24
If we are honest, I think listening to Jack it’s a question of when he goes not if. He says he wants to win medals and compete at the highest level as a player both domestically and at international level, and whilst we are undoubtedly progressing as a club I am not sure I can see us winning the premier league in the next 5 years or so, while Jack will be at his peak. Can I see us establishing ourselves in the premiership? Definitely. Can I see us pushing for a top 6 place? Again I would say definitely I maybe can see us challenging for a top 4 spot, we may even win a cup along the way but winning the premiership or the holy grail of the champions league then trying to be realistic that’s not likely to happen. What I hope is Jack helps us attract more quality players to the squad this transfer window and next he gives us one more year leads us to European qualification and then we should let him go and thank him for what he has done for the club.

17.) 28 Jun 2021 23:05:41
Agree with you Ed but agents will be behind some of the rumours and media garbage. Agents are cunning its all about money.

18.) 28 Jun 2021 23:15:10
ED002 respectfully I am a little bit confused as to why you can't see why its in an agents interests to create a circus " it absolutely does happen" a percentage of £100million is big money! City are of coure interested in Jack and there is a number of other clubs too but they will not enter the situation because who can afford him!? Anyway regardless he will be a Villa player come the start of the season.

{Ed002's Note - Agents do not create a "circus" and his income will not be a percentage of £100M - it will be a fixed amount negotiated with any potential buyer.}

19.) 29 Jun 2021 00:00:12
Ed we all seem to have missed your bit of info there about interest in tino livramento? What do we know about this kid?

{Ed002's Note - Young, well liked, Right Wing Back or Winger. Chelsea won't want to sell but may consider a loan.}

20.) 29 Jun 2021 13:31:14
"{Ed002's Note - Agents do not create a "circus" and his income will not be a percentage of £100M - it will be a fixed amount negotiated with any potential buyer. }"

I'm newly registered and have done so to respond to this particular thread.

There are two main points to be made.

1. Most of the non-mainstream outlets generate revenue through ads and in order to get ad revenue they need traffic going to their sites. So it's in their interest to generate stories from 'close sources' that will ultimately drive fans, like us, to their sites.

2. I understand the point about agents. Where Ed002 has pointed out that an agent income will not be a percentage of the £100, it will still be a fixed amount embedded in the contract. However, that will be the case for any contract whether it be a renewal with Villa or a new contract with City. It's down to the player as to what he wants to do with his future.

I check the news on Villa daily. Anything outside of BBC/ Sky Sports News is to be taken lightly. Bmail is one of the main offenders, the amount of 'headlines' I see from them daily just to drive traffic to their sites is unbelievable.

We all want to know what's happening with Grealish and other new potential signings. Patience is key here. We just need to ride the wave for now.

Happy afternoon all :)

{Ed077's Note - what the agent gets is generally unrelated to the transfer fee. Agents usually negotiate their fees separately from the transfer fee. JG's agent can demand/negotiate 20M whether JG moves for 90M or 125M.}

21.) 29 Jun 2021 15:04:06
Afternoon avod, welcome aboard mate.
Hope you will be part of many more threads, enjoy the ride.

22.) 30 Jun 2021 13:48:03
Of course the agent will have a fixed figure agreed but agents will also include a percentage of the £100million if they can. I know enough brokers and agents to know it happens.

{Ed002's Note - You clearly know nothing about football agents and how the process works. This is nothing to do with agents trying to create any sort of circus. You really just don't seem to get it at all.}

23.) 30 Jun 2021 20:52:18
I really do a friend of mine is an agent, you are naive! I did not say it was all about agents trying to create a circus but very clearly they can and do.

{Ed002's Note - As the one person who has ever visited this page who could never accused of being naive you are simply continuing to embarrass the Aston Villa supporters with these stupid posts.}



08 Jun 2021 15:37:47
Anybody know anything about Papa Matar Sarr? Seems like this guy is generating a lot of interest from some big clubs including us but from what I read this is his breakthrough season and he has only really played a relatively small number of games, no doubt given the level of interest he is a good player but at only 18 is he up to the rigours of the premiership?


1.) 08 Jun 2021 16:26:08
There are several reports in France saying that Villa have lodged their interest and are prepared to pay around 25 million euros for him. Seems a lot to pay for an 18 year old but he is one of the most highly rated in his age bracket over here. His FIFA rating is currently 61, with a potential of 79, which is exceptional. Chukwuemeka for instance has a current rating of 56, with a potential of 74.
I didn’t watch many Ligue 1 matches this season, so I can’t give you my impression of him. However, the reviews, the high FIFA ratings, the fact he’s already played for Senegal, and our needs for a quality DM, where he supposedly excels suggest he might be a good one to go for.

{Ed002's Note - Pape Matar Sarr (DM/CM/AM) Metz don't want to sell the versatile youngster after only signing the youngster last summer but if a good offer were made they would consider it. Unlikely to qualify for a Work Permit in England and one who will be off to AFCON although Everton and Aston Villa will seek an exemption if they can reach agreement over price as both may have the need to recruit a replacement for Luiz and Besic.}

2.) 08 Jun 2021 20:15:17
I forgot about the work permit element to this with the new rules following Brexit. Not sure what the criteria is for qualifying, seem to remember a player has to have played a minimum number of games at a certain level etc.

3.) 08 Jun 2021 22:38:38
Is the criteria something to do with games played for their national team and/ or fee paid for the transfer Ed?

4.) 09 Jun 2021 06:13:21
Chris, I’ve read up a bit on this and I expect you probably have done also, but for the benefit of those who haven’t
EU players will need a GBE ( Governing Body Endorsement ) . This can only be immediately approved with a score of 15 points. Points are awarded on criteria, including no. Of international caps and the FIFA ranking of the players country. The strength of the league from which the player is arriving from and the number of club appearances they have already made is also a factor.
If a player scores between 10 and 14 points an exceptions panel will make a ruling.
I did read however, that there could be a special permissions for players between 18 and 19, if they don’t qualify for a GBE, such as if they have made a certain number of appearances in the first team of their current club, but it didn’t specify how many.

5.) 09 Jun 2021 20:39:33
I hadn’t read up mark, so thanks for letting us know👍 Sounds like a Visa isn’t out of the question then if the link is true.

Guys it's the artist formally known as Villajohn 😊 I have had some real problems signing in under my old user name so I have re registered so anything now under the nom de plume Lord of the Ings is me. 👍.




16 Aug 2021 10:48:16
I watch a fair bit of championship football as well as the premiership and I keep a particular eye on ex Villa players. Towards the end of last season and admittedly we are only two games into the new campaign but our old boy Callum O'hare has turned in some really eye catching performances I know we tried hard to keep him but it wasn't to be but if he continues as he is it wouldn't surprise me if one of the less established premiership sides took a punt on him, he has quick feet and can certainly pick a pass.


1.) 16 Aug 2021 16:27:45
Yes John, he’s doing really well at Cov, and was awarded their player of the season. He’s only 23, so he will probably continue to improve over the coming seasons.
Maybe we should have inserted a buy back clause 🤔😁

13 Aug 2021 15:22:57
Interesting that in the latest press conference Deano suggested our transfer business may very well be done. As others have said JWP won't be sold this window given Saints already selling Ings and Vestergaard. Sky are now suggesting we are no longer interested in Cantwell, and the fact that it's gone quiet on other linked players like Alvarez means there could be an element of truth in what's being said, that combined with the return to fitness of Sanson who can play the defensive midfielder role may mean we want to keep our powder dry until the next transfer window and assess things then.


1.) 13 Aug 2021 15:59:03
May be playing his cards close to his chest as usual, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t sign anyone else. The position we are looking to bring a player in, we have many options there already so if we can’t get out main target (seems to be JWP) then I think we’ll wait instead of going for option B or C.

Finishing a summer window where we’ve arguable come out stronger overall than we went in, with 10M profit, decent business really.

2.) 13 Aug 2021 17:48:20
Deanos smile when asked about jwp gave away a lot i think if southampton don't make some good enough signings fast he will be in next week 🧐.

3.) 14 Aug 2021 08:48:46
I'd be amazed if we don't sign one or two more - We don't want to get ripped off but the fact we bid for JWP more than once suggests we are definitely after a MF of some sort.



12 Aug 2021 11:20:27
Looks like Norwich have signed a winger I think his name is Tzolis from Greek football for about £10 million. Having already signed Rashica that says to me that Cantwell is going somewhere as Norwich don't spend that kind of money on someone who is going to sit on the bench. I hope to god it isn't to us, but unfortunately I fear it is and for an ridiculous fee.


1.) 12 Aug 2021 11:59:12
If it’s for a ridiculous fee I would agree with you John. However, I think it will boil down to what Cantwell wants. He hasn’t signed a new contract and I don’t think his Norwich salary is that great, compared to what he would get at Villa for instance. Add to that, Norwich will more than likely get relegated and Villa are a team moving forward and could well be pushing for European football.
Yes, they have the option to renew his contract for an extra year, but if he has no real desire to stay at the club, they run the risk of ultimately losing him for a much lower fee at next Summer or possibly on a free in 2 years time.
With all that in mind then, what Norwich are asking and what they might be prepared to accept might be considerably different.
I do actually like Cantwell and he’s only 23, so has time to become a better player. Ask yourself this, was ‘he should not be named’ that much better than Cantwell 3 years ago when he was roughly the same age. I would say yes he was better, but perhaps not massively so. IMO if we could get Cantwell for around 25 million, that would be good value for money. SHEGFY.

2.) 12 Aug 2021 13:19:02
Can’t disagree with any of that, still need that CDM, I’d go for Anguissa for now, ticks all the boxes and we’re not a club that have to buy potential 1st and foremost to make profit on a player, think our owners are in it to win things, winning things creates profit too, if we can get Anguissa and Cantrell, putting my you know what on the block, not top 4, top 3…🤔


3.) 12 Aug 2021 13:37:30
For me I’d take him but 20 million tops, he’s got way to much still to prove.

4.) 12 Aug 2021 16:29:16
I have to say whilst I might take Cantwell I wouldn’t pay more than £20 million for him and I don’t think Norwich will let him go for that price, I wouldn’t take Anguissa at any price no better than what we have got in my opinion, if we can’t get Bissouma or Berge then I might me tempted by the young French lad Papa Mata Sarr in fairness I haven’t seen him play but he seems to getting a lot of plaudits from football people and is attracting interest from some of the big clubs. Mdf I think you said you saw him play recently and were quite impressed.

John he was outstanding the other night when I watched him against Lille, and as I said Lille are the current French champions. SHEGFY.

Not that we know of Dave I agree, but then again we hadn’t heard anything about Ings before it happened.

Not for me guys not only is it too much but if we have only one big money move then I don’t think JWP is the enforcer type we need for me I would be asking Brighton about Bissouma.

I think this is one of those events which tend to polarise opinions, but for me I am more in the Btw camp. I don’t think Jack has done anything wrong by inserting a release clause in his contract he has protected his own position as a professional footballer who wants to win trophies but he has also protected the clubs best interests in maximising the fee we received for his services. The days where players stay with club from cradle to grave are long since gone with a few notable exceptions, and let’s not forget when clubs want rid of players they do so without batting an eyelid so the question of loyalty is one which cuts both ways.

He left to better himself and play for a team whose chances of winning major honours are much greater than our own, ask yourself if you were given the opportunity to do the same job for a different company on more money would you take it?
