A few sources are today throwing around the talk of a possible deal to bring Villa wide man Ashley Young to the Lane …..
Great !!! …… I hear you say,
But what about the cost ?
With Young apparently valued by the Villa board at £30m – yes, you read that right £30m, Harry Redknapp is reportedly preparing to offer 3 players in exchange for the England hopeful’s services.
Jermaine Jenas, Robbie Keane and David Bentley are the players in question, some may be happy to see the back of all 3 at the moment, and we’d be lucky to get £20m for them individually in the current financial climate, but the question is ……. Is Ashley Young of equivalent value to all 3 put together?
I personally would love to see Young in a Spurs shirt come August 14th, lining up against Man City for the opening Prem fixture, but my opinion is that he’s worth nearer the £15-20m mark ?.?.?
Jenas, Keane and Bentley are all good players in their own rights and to be honest, I’d like to see Bentley given more time at the club. But if Harry were to strike a deal involving Keane and Jenas then I’d be happy ….. both players have probably done their best work in the lilywhite shirt and could probably do with a fresh start elsewhere to prevent their careers from petering out.
If the rumours turn out to have an ounce of truth in them ….. would you welcome this particular deal?
Would you like to see Ashley Young in a Spurs shirt ? Would you be glad to see the back of the 3 Spurs men in question or would you like to see any / all 3 retained?
