Villa looking at quite a few signings.
Stephens is possibly one of his 7-8 but I'm sure he'll be told to sling his hook on that one.
Out of contract June 2017 : Stockdale, Maenpaa, Ankers, Bong, Stephens, Sidwell, O'Grady
You might be surprised. Bloom is a man of great principle. Remember he walked away from signing Virgil Van Dijk because Groningen put the price up by £300k at the last minute, having previously shaken hands on a deal.
Still gutted we missed out there, but even armed with hindsight, I'm still team Bloom on his decision. He was simply not prepared to be ****ed over. Suspect (assuming the stuff went down as has been portrayed on here) that Grabban would get the same response.
The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.
