Sundays don’t put a stop to Villa news and rumour.  Here’s the latest updates of all things claret and blue:

Steven N’Zonzi, the lanky figure at the heart of Stoke’s midfield, is being linked to Villa in a £6 million pound deal.  We will apparently face competition for his signature from West Ham & West Brom.  This is a difficult one to gauge, N’Zonzi isn’t pretty, but is arguably effective in the role that he’s picked to do.  Is this the future for Aston Villa?  The jury’s out on that one.

Italian giants Roma are the latest in an increasing line of top European clubs to be linked to Christian Benteke.  Benteke’s £32.5 million release clause is now public knowledge & falls within the reach of a handful of elite European sides.  Whilst Roma might represent a unforeseen move for the Belgian, it would be a logical step up for a player craving Champions League football.  We just have to hope Christian fancies another season at B6.

A link out of nowhere has come in the form of Felipe Avenatti, who currently plys his trade for mid-table Serie B side Ternana in Italy.  The 22 year old Uruguayan is a product of River Plate, former club of Juan Pablo Angel.  The youngster stands tall at 6ft 4″ & was a runner up for his national side at the 2013 Under 20 Championships.  He appears exciting, a hassle for defenders, but certainly unproven at the highest level.
