There has been a rumour flying around today on twitter.
Personally I do not believe it, but the rumour states that Kenwynne Jones will be at villa in a cash plus Hutton to Stoke deal. So I have been thinking it is rubbish but then I see this from Sky Sports Pete Colley.
@muzzavilla @rogerw34 @matkendrick @timothyabraham Heard Jones yesterday but I’d be surprised but then Grant Holt was a big lump up front?!
Now when we speculate about a forward we do think it will be a big man up front. Holt was orignally linked, Caroll has been linked throughout the summer and now we have Jones.
I agree that we need a big man up front with some physical presence that is obvious to all. However Kenwynne Jones is NOT a player many of us would really want. His record is not that good, we still have Bent and his partnership up at Sunderland never really worked. I still hold onto hopes we will bring in a decent foreign signing.
REMEMBER STILL PLENTY OF TIME until the transfer window closes. With just over a week to go until the season starts we will see the transfer market start to wind up.
