Villa To Take Bardsley

Roy Keane's fears are set to be confirmed as various sources claim Phil Bardsley is set to join Aston Villa on loan. The Manchester United full-back held talks with Sunderland manager Keane but asked for time to talk to a Premiership club. He seems to have found his place.

Bardsley spent the first part of the season at Rangers but that spell was not a succesful one for him, for he fell out with eventually departing boss Paul Le Guen. He returned to Old Trafford but this loan move and a view of a permanent deal may mean he does not have a great future at the Reds.

United will play twice in the next two weeks but Bardsley won't be available for Martin O'Neill.

I think he's absolutely an attacking full-back and his defensive work must be improved. Seems to be difficult charachter though surely it wans't easy to work with Le Guen. I think he could have been a good back-up player at us but he might flourish at Villa if he gets the opportunity. Definitely Premiership material I believe.

Sounds like that LeGuen could start an argument in an empty room.

I think we should have brought him back to old trafford as cover for Neville! then we could have off loaded another defender i-e Silvestra! he is completely useless!! he shouldent be at a club like Manchester United!! Maybe we could off load him to Chelsea? as they seem to be good at buying crap players!! plus is it just me that thinks this or has silvestra got a head shaped like a light bulb?

I like Silvestre very much but I think we should offload him sooner or later as he seems to lose the plot...

YES he does lose the plot but always at critical moment!
