Who Can Wake Up Insomnia?

There are definite signs of discontent at the Villa, as Charles N’Zogbia took to twitter to vent his frustration at being substituted against one of his former employers Newcastle at the weekend. The France international, who was the clubs major signing last summer, has endured a miserable start to his Villa career only managing to score once.

N’Zogbia tweeted, “For the first time in my life I’m not happy playing football.”

So as the man Joe Kinnear so eloquently nicknamed Charles Insomnia declares his happiness once again, which clubs would be willing to take a punt on the talented but temperamental winger?

Paris Saint-Germain

N’Zogbia, 25, would seem to fit the bill perfectly for the cash rich Parisian outfit. With cash to spend and a dedication to young French talent P.S.G. have already purchased a number of promising young Frenchmen with the likes of Blaise Matuidi, Jérémy Ménez, and Kevin Gameiro all being brought in since the change in ownership.

The club are surly on the up and would be an interesting option for N’Zogbia as Champions League football would enhance his chances of tying down a regular spot for the French national side.

Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers are another club who may very well be interested in making a bid for the Frenchman. New owner Tony Fernandes he has overseen a massive recruitment drive at Loftus Load since his arrival.

With his side being the busiest club in the January transfer window and greatly improving the quality of his side, manager Mark Hughes will feel that he has the players and the know how to avoid relegation. Survival would mean another influx of new players with the skill and pace of N’Zogbia something that would appeal to a side which has lacked penetration at times this season.


Harry Redknapp has a history of getting the best out of so called disruptive characters. From Di Canio to Adebayor, Harry has not been scared of taking risks on talented players who have been shunned by other managers.

N’Zogbia defiantly seems to fit within this category and if he could settle down and produce his top form he would be an asset to most Premier League teams. With pace and good technique he would fit right in at a Spurs team who now boast one of the best attacking teams in the country.
