This is a quiet period for transfer speculation and other news so just two links tonight from the same story.
The People claim that we want 5m rated Javi Marquez, Espanyol’s Midfielder who they say has been an hit in La Liga this season. The story kinda falls down when they link Wigan and broke Everton as well !! Not that I know anything about the player but the link is just rubbish in my view.
Also they Man U an Chelsea want our highly rated 15 YO Jordan Graham before he signs a professional contract. We can hardly cry foul over this as we took Gareth Barry in the same way but I feel mighty uncomfortable 15 year old’s can be traded like this, in Europe the limit is 18 and should be here as well.
This kid is someone the youth team watchers have raved about and HERE the guardian picked him as a future star for 2014.
Aston Villa supporters like their wingers, especially homegrown ones, so news that there could be another Mark Walters or Tony Daley coming through will be most welcome to the Holte End. Graham has been with Villa since the age of nine and has blossomed into one of the most talented wide players at schoolboy level. He is tall, strong and quick with an eye for goal. Graham, who lives in Coventry, qualifies for the Republic of Ireland and England and is sure to be at the centre of quite a battle between the two countries. He represented Ireland’s Under-15s in May, when he scored twice in a 5-0 win over Northern Ireland in the Tri-Nations tournament, but is also one of five Villa players called up for the England Under-16s training camp at Burton this month.
Lets face it given the recent record of the respective youth teams is there any place better for him to learn that at Bodymoor Heath ?
