Football Rumours: Aston Villa after Arsenal's Hoyte & Chelsea's Paulo Ferreira

Villa Park Aston VillaFootball rumours continue to abound in the transfer window silly season. Latest ones are that Villa boss Martin O'Neill is reported to be after Justin Hoyte & Chelsea's Paulo Ferreira. Given that Ferreira cost Chelsea 17.5m and he has just signed a new five year deal the report he is wanted as back-up can be taken with a very large pinch of salt.

Gunners star Justin Hoyte has been the subject of football rumours in the past linking him to Villa but has been quoted as saying that he wants to stay at the Emirates Stadium and fight for his first-team place.

Seems to us that these football rumours are exactly that, with Martin O'Neill about to be the subject of a lot of rumour and transfer speculation as he tries desperately to reinforce his small squad, which is about to get a bit smaller still. The longest and most boring football rumour of the season appears to be ending, with Gareth Barry moving to Liverpool at long last.

As an Arsenal fan, I completely agree with this. He just doesn't seem to have that spark of magic that the likes of Henry had. I have just recently ditched the sky sports packages and subscribed to Setanta who seems to have the bulk of all the premiership games this season, including a good number of Arsenal matches and to be honest, i'm worried on how this season will unfold for us loosing quality players and not bringing many in.

Although the new players are good, they're all downgrades on earlier players.
