Aston Villa Back to Target Scharner

Aston Villa Back to Target Scharner


Following their capture of Emile Heskey last week it looks like Aston Villa will return to the JJB with a £6 million offer for Wigan Athletic centre back Paul Scharner.

Villa boss Martin O`Neil is looking for an experienced defender to step straight into the side following the news that Martin Laursen will be out for two months with a serious injury

Scharners agent Valentin Hobel says that Villa are interested and ready to make a bid, he told reporters:

'Aston Villa are interested in Paul. There is definitely something in it. The ball is in Villa's court.'

Scharner appears to be happy at the Latics but he has responded to the reported interest by declaring that with Villa being an ambitious club it is a move that he would consider, Scharner told reporters:

'Aston Villa are an ambitious club, and joining them would be an upward step for my career. 'I originally decided to stay with Wigan in the new year, but if an offer comes in for me I will consider it.'

How many do we have not on loan then, cos that's the number I'd guess at us selling, maybe they'll be a BOGOFF sale. Are we Woolworths, are we Woolworths, are we Woolworths in disguise, are we Woolworths in disguise?

This isn't a nice thing to read, don't like players or agents talking about other clubs (even the one I support) when at another. That is an insult to Wigan and totally out of order. These players really don't know the honoured position they are in do they?

No, show him the Villa bench, it'll be home for the rest of the season.
