This time last night the stories of Villa bidding for Ipswich LB first Aaron Cresswell came online.
Unlike other rumours these seem to have some substance. Tonight the Mirror say Ipswich have brought Doncaster’s Left Back George Friend.
This would seem to indicate that Cresswell is off and clear that it is likely to be us. I have no idea on him, so impossible to say if he is a good Left Back or not but lets hope he is !!
So Warnock is off then but it appears no real news where he will be off to. Despite his Liverpool background I do fancy he will be going to Everton who will eventually sell Baines on the long rumoured transfer to Man U.
That makes two new full backs at Villa Park and we await the arrival of at least one Centre Back as it is likely Collins will go. Is Vlaar still a target ?
EDIT 23:45 – Various stories from Ipswich journo’s that Paul Jewell has confirmed interest from Villa
