Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern really don’t know what to make of the latest news surrounding their club that signing Chris Samba could be a very distinct possibility.
Steve Bruce confirmed earlier today – as per the club’s official Twitter account – that the Midlands side had taken Chris Samba on a trial with the view to a potential contract with the club:

And, whilst Samba enjoyed a strong spell with Blackburn earlier on in his career there’s plenty of doubters over this potential deal here in the Transfer Tavern and further afield.
You can see why, too, as since his Ewood Park days Samba has become somewhat of a lone ranger flitting between sides and so there will have to be some serious convincing to do if he puts pen to paper.
Indeed, the news has offered the chance for ridicule – as Villa fans will surely be aware of – and our landlord has dug up this video of Samba that will hardly strike confidence into the club’s supporters.
Uploaded via Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones on his Twitter account last month, this short clip shows just why there are serious reservations over this move:
