Sidwell Set For Villa Move

Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Aston Villa have agreed a £5.5million deal for Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell.

The former Reading star only moved to Stamford Bridge last summer on a free transfer, but he was unable to force a regular place in Chelsea's first XI.

And after only seven Premier League starts for the Blues, Sidwell has now opted to move to Villa Park.

Villa boss Martin O'Neill is keen to bolster his small squad as he attempts to build a side capable of a top-six Premier League finish next season.

But, Sidwell, 25, could also be viewed as a possible replacement for Villa captain Gareth Barry, who is a transfer target of Liverpool.

Brilliant. Even with wages, im sure we have made a tidy profit on this one. Thanks and good luck Ginger Steve :lol:

I dont know if its one step forward two steps back replacing Barry with Sidwell, but I'm sure O'Neill isnt done over at Villa. With the right moves and some cash injected by Lerner, they can be pushing for the UEFA cup or better this season
