The rumours surrounding what really happened between Martin O’Neill and Nigel Reo-Coker at the Villa training ground won’t go away but our friends at the News of the World suggest that the midfielder is on his way out of the Midlands club. The closure of the transfer window means that no move for the midfielder will be imminent but big spending Harry Redknapp at Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur is poised to pounce for the player.
Given that Villa fans believe their squad is paper thin at the best of times, the fall-out between the two after their sensational bust-up must be serious if O’Neill is looking to offload his player so quickly. This may mean that the ex Celtic manager has a few signings up his sleeve and there could be a sensational swap deal with David Bentley leaving White Hart Lane for Villa Park.
Both players are out of favour with their current bosses and both would relish the chance to kick-start their career in new surroundings.
Will both players be breaking out the bubbly at the thought of these moves? Is there a sensational Premier League swap deal in the offing? Should this rumour fly or die?
