Warnock IS Going To Villa

Warnock IS Going To Villa

There are reports eminating that suggest that Aston Villa have made another bid for Stephen Warnock and he has been withdrawn from the matchday squad to face Sunderland.

Rovers hirearchy have accepted the offer, There has been no confirmation of the figure but it may rise as high as £8 million with installments. How much up front and how much in add-ons is also an issue to be resolved.

It is believed that Allardyce has sanctioned the deal and he is also probably aware that the player is keen to go.

Unless we have a replacement lined up (the lad from the Ivory Coast springs to mind, to allow Givet to slide over to Left Back) and IF, if we get the full amount up front to allow us to get some midfielders then this might be an acceptable move, otherwise it is plain bonkers by Rovers.

As always, Keeping the VBer community bang up to date BEFORE all the other sites!

So come on then, let the verbal diatribe commence!

Reserving judgement until all the facts and figures are in but am not overly impressed with this move, even if we get the midfield strengthened, as it is in need of it. Sad to see the lad go. Good luck Steve Wee!

I dont see the point in selling him just one week before transfer deadline... The sale is acceptable is we get a quality midfielder as I think Warnock would have been used as a midfielder! And lets hope Givet doesnt get injured....Olsson is a MAJOR liability!

Much as I would hate to see Warnock leave, this might just prove to be good for Rovers as lately he's mostly been playing out of position in midfield. Providing we have cover for Nelson & Samba, Givet is comfortable at left back (BSA seems to prefer him there) with Ollson as cover - so £8m (+£1m? for Gallagher) could provide a few more options to strengthen the squad? The worry is a scenario where both Samba and Nelson (and perhaps Givet) are injured at the same time - maybe why we are still being linked with defenders? We will just have to wait to see if the reports are true.

10 mill is more on the mark for me but if we have accepted 8 what can you do? Sad fact is we need to sell to strengthen our squad (if it needs strenghtening). Steve Warnock will be missed as there is only one better left back and that's Asley Cole. Good luck Stevie W.
