Aston Villa Make A Move For Charles N'Zogbia




Vital Wigan understands that Aston Villa have made an official bid to the Latics for attacking midfield man Charles N'Zogbia.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan confirmed last week that there had been a lot of 'interest' in Charlie from Premier League clubs but no firm bids, now that Villa have sold Ashley Young to Manchester United it appears that the cash received has started to burn a hole in Alex McLeish's pockets.

It is the second time in a year that McLeish has made a move to sign the France international, last August Birmingham City had a 9 million bid accepted by the Latics but Charlie decided that he wanted to stay at the DW Stadium and turned the move down, but with just a year remaining on his current deal both Whelan and manager Roberto Martinez have indicated that N'Zogbia will be sold.

The 25 year old was in scintillating form at the end of last season scoring five goals in the last six games and playing a major part as the Latics secured Premier League status for a seventh consecutive season.

Looks like Villa are determined to have something off us this summer!!

Not worth the reported 15 million, mind you the transfer market is shot to bits with all these ridiculous evaluations of players. 10 million at best. Up the Villa!
Timmsy
Where did you get 15 from Timmy?? It's 9-10. Still think that he would be worth 15.

i'd pay up to around 11-12million i think at most, with him being on he last year of his contract. i'd love to have N'Zogbia at Villa!!

Charlie is a class player, watching him week in week out you get to see that he performs on a regular basis, he works hard for the team, he provides for other players and scores himself, 9 goals from the wing for a side that struggled to score all season is testement to that. Normally he would be worth well over 15 mil, but with just a year on his contract left I can see him going for 10 and that would be a bargain, believe me.
worbo
N'Zogbia wouldnt look out of place playing for any team in the world. He is World Class. Whoever buys him, whether it be 9, 10 or 15 million, are getting one of the biggest bargains the premier league has ever seen.

I think we will agree a 12 milli fee rising to 14 or 15... we at villa are quite scabby and I cant see us agreeing the full 15 outright...
CDX_EIRE39
worbo i think he is worth a bit more than 10
johnney handsome
Yep I know, thats what I said
worbo
you sure this is true seen as its not being reported anywhere?.....
avfcwills10
It was an exclusive avfcwills10, its in the Mirror now
worbo
Do you think it will happen Worbo ?
cb_82
but with no disrespect, how would you get this exclusive if the papers were not able to mate?
avfcwills10
Cant say but came from the highest authority, we have very close ties to the club, will it happen, thats a different matter and probably down to what Villa have offered, other interested parties and Charlie himself
