Aston Villa bid for Charles N'Zogbia
Aston Villa are believed to have made an offer for Wigan Athletic winger Charles N'Zogbia.
Reports are suggesting that Villa boss Alex McLeish wants the 25-year-old Frenchman to replace Stewart Downing, who looks set to join Liverpool.
Just last week Wigan owner Dave Whelan said of the N'Zogbia situation: "We have to sell Charles because he's on the last year of his contract. We can't keep him if a big club comes for him, and he does deserve a big club because he's that kind of quality player.”
With regard to other potential signings during the summer transfer window, Victor Chandler are offering odds of 1/8 that Villa sign Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given, with a price of evens available on West Ham stopper Robert Green arriving at Villa Park.
Paddy Power are offering 5/2 that Alex McLeish signs one player from his former club Birmingham, with two arrivals priced at 9/2.
