Quote of the day

"Newcastle are looking to recruit a host of English-based players this summer after making a flurry of French signings for the 2013/14 campaign."

I'm not sure quite what the Daily Star's Gary Jones has been drinking, but it must be enough to have him seeing double or even treble if he thinks Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong constitute "a flurry of French signings".

The quote appears in an article suggesting that the Silver Fox has targeted Aston Villa duo Andreas Weimann and Fabian Delph. Both are young but with Premier League experience and have performed reasonably well in a struggling side this year, Delph in particular - but with Villa looking to rebuild themselves this summer, they will no doubt be reluctant to part with them unless at a premium. That said, perhaps we can exploit the uncertainty now surrounding the club's ownership...
