Adam Deal Unlikely: Villa Linked to 3 More Attacking Players

According to reports Gerard Houllier is not stopping his search for attacking options following the record signing of Darren Bent. Rumours suggest that Villa and Blackpool’s valuation of Charlie Adam are some way apart so a move is looking less and less likely. Villa apparently bid £4m in what is their third offer but Blackpool value him at double that so it doesn’t look good on that front. In other news Villa are reported to have scouts, along with the likes of Liverpool, at the Asian Cup in Qatar and are set to be monitoring Japanese star man Keisuke Honda. Sky Sports reported yesterday that Villa had made an offer for Blues midfielder Seb Larsson. I have been told that this is not the case but the club does hold an interest in the winger, along with Blackburn, who have bid, and Newcastle who had a bid accepted but failed to secure terms. The third link that I have heard is that of Dimitri Payet, an attacking winger or forward for St Ettiene. The Frenchman has seen talks break down over a new contract at the club, alerting the interest of favourites for his signature, Liverpool but also Gerard Houllier.
