Aston Villa derided for ‘stupid’ bid for Crystal Palace forward…


Football clubs keep such a tight grip on information these days that even most transfer fees remain undisclosed.

But every now and then a juicy nugget is leaked – be it from a club official, agent or even a player.

That’s what appears to have happened with Aston Villa’s offer for Crystal Palace forward Dwight Gayle, with Sky Sports quoting their source as saying it was a “stupid bid”.

We doubt it bodes well for Villa getting their man before today’s transfer deadline.
