Aston Villa could still end up signing Dimitar Berbatov

Aston Villa and Dimitar Berbatov were unable to come to terms today. There is still time! Most fans would have told you that Aston Villa could have used a new striker before the close of today's transfer deadline. But Emmanuel Adebayor never came through and Dimitar Berbatov couldn't agree with Villa on a wage package. The former seems like a burned bridge, but there is still a chance that the latter could wear claret and blue this year. From what I can tell, no other clubs are seriously looking at Berbatov in any capacity. The deadline for Premier League clubs to submit the squad lists is...

Aston Villa see deal for striker fall through due to wage demands

Dimitar Berbatov was indeed at Bodymoor Heath talking with Aston Villa today, but apparently his wage demands were too much for the club. Well, scratch those Dimitar Berbatov rumours. Apparently the Bulgarian striker was indeed at Aston Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground today, but a deal never materialized. The cause? Exactly what you would expect: Villa held Berbatov talks today but wages too high. They had deal for Adebayor late July but he rejected & #AVFC not pursuing #DeadlineDay — David Ornstein (@bbcsport_david) September 1, 2015 Well so much for that possibility. Also...

Aston Villa transfer news: Berbatov at Bodymoor Heath

Dimitar Berbatov is apparently at Bodymoor Heath, adding fuel to the fire that Aston Villa may sign him. There are plenty of in-the-know (ITK) types on twitter that I wouldn't trust at all. The type of people who tweet "______ is at White Hart Lane!" or "_____ seen leaving Bodymoor Heath." And then there are a few journalists who I would trust to the ends of the Earth. Sam Tighe falls into the latter category, and he's got some news for us: Dimitar Berbatov is at Bodymoor Heath, I'm told. #AVFC — Sam Tighe (@stighefootball) September 1, 2015 Sam's sources may be wrong, but I have no...

Aston Villa transfer news: Berbatov deal does not need to happen today

Aston Villa and Dimitar Berbatov have been linked for most of the summer. That doesn't have to end today. Dimitar Berbatov flashed onto the radar of Aston Villa fans in late July when it was first rumoured that he could be joining the club. Then we heard nothing for ages and I think that most of us forgot about the rumour. So it came as a bit of a shock today to see it reignited by Sky Sports and the Express. These rumours may very well be a simple rehash of something that popped up a month ago, and I'm not sure that a move for the 34-year-old Bulgarian striker actually is going to...

Dimitar Berbatov in talks with Villa

Sky Sports and The Express are reporting that Dimitar Berbatov is finalising his move to Aston Villa right now. Don't call it a comeback, we've been in for him for.. years? Dimitar Berbatov's potential move to Aston Villa is only beaten in longevity by Adebayor's, which as come back from the dead more times than MJ in Thriller. Sky Sports and The Express are waving their 'It's Happening' flags. Berbatov's move as well as Ade's looked to be dead in the water after the signings of Rudy Gestede and Jordan Ayew, but from this news (and the Dwight Gayle rumour), it would look that Tim Sherwood...
