Talking about potential players signing for Aston Villa last week with a fellow Villa fan, and he said, which was news to me, that Villa might make an audacious attempt to get Joe Hart in at our football club.
Most of our talk was about the potential signing of John Terry, which I genuinely thought we had a chance of signing him, so when he threw Joe Hart into the equation, I wasn’t really having any of that.
But today, Joe Hart has a 4/1 chance of signing for Aston Villa according to Sky Bet. Could or would he come to Aston Villa? Will we pay the reported £15m asking price that Manchester City would want for him? Or maybe we could get him on loan.
I personally think we don’t have much of a chance of signing him. I think Villa’s situation possibly falls just a little short of what he might find acceptable in taking a backward step. But who knows, anything is possible. What do you think?
