Bound For Villa?

With a proposed move to Sunderland not materializing this summer, could Darren Gibson have found a new club?

Our spies in the media are running speculative articles that infer that the Northern Ireland international is wanted by Alec McLeish, AT Aston nVilla.

Apparently a fee of 3.5 million is being mentioned.

We`ll keep an eye on this one!

As a villa fan i wouldnt mind gibbo he seems to have a goal in him which our current cm positions dont seem to do enough for me, and 3-5million is surely a bargain what u utd fans think of him?

3.5 mil?! We're getting bumped! He has the potential to be a great player. ClivetheVillan on his day he's fantastic and will spray balls all over the pitch and hit 30+ yarders the issue with us was we couldn't get any consistency out of him but I reckon that was more to do with a lack of first-team action, we should've loaned him out earlier in his career. If he goes to Villa and get a consistent run in your team at 3.5 mil, even at 6-8 mil, I reckon you'll be getting your monies worth.

Really wouldn't want gibson if im totally honest, i don't think at this moment in stage he will improve our team at all. We have delph and bannan in our ranks who can potentially be excellent players and playing at the top level. What i saw from gibson in his brief run in your team last year was he had a lot of shots and probably getting 1 in 5 on target, his passing is decent but again just would not be an improvement.

Gibbo was too erratic for us due to lack of 1st team action - poor lad - will do really well at another club though

ok I'm an Irish Villa fan and over here he has a reputation as a bit rubbish,maybe thats harsh but he has never impressed me for Ireland.I think the feeling amongst Utd fans over here is please go.

Pking, many United fans wanted Fletcher to go a few years back now though he's a valuable member of the first team. Like Fletcher before him, things can change very quickly with Gibson he may be more consistent with his passing and shooting in my eyes he just needs the game time. I don't think he will be getting that gametime at our club though, I would be happy with him being loaned out for a season to be honest.

I would prefer to see him out on loan - regular first team action may very well help his game come ob.

TheFamousNo7 seems to echo a lot of Man Utd fans I've asked, they all rate him and all say he needs games to shine ..... if Fergie has kept him around for a length of time he must have something in the locker ..... their midfield isn't the easiest of places to get into is it? sign him up ..... he's got to be better than Petrov FFS ! :)

Not sure where he would fit in, we have Petrov, Mckeon and now Delph seems to be the man. To be fair I think Gibson has a lot to prove and could be a good punt if he gets a game. COTVABU
