Cattermole and Bramble have been at him for ages to sign and just think this and his relationship with Bruce may be the clincher.
The only way he will join Villa is if they offer him stupid wages, in this I mean more than Bent is currently on, we could have matched what Bent is on at Villa by the way, this is from Quinn's lips at the last talk in at SOL.
Its common knowledge in football Nzogbia has always been our number 1 target and the 8m fee isnt an issue.
Bent's on £65,000 a week at Villa, that's their wage limit. Our wage limit is around £50,000 at the minute. That's just taken from sources such as The Telegraph and The Guardian and perhaps they're just making educated guesses, but it would seem to be there or thereabouts.
I don't think we would have matched Villa's wage offer to Bent at all and personally I think that was just Quinny bluffing. I also don't think N'Zogbia would come here for £50,000 a week when he could easily get £60,000-£65,000 at Villa.
Unfortunately I think he's Villa bound, but you do have form for these sort of threads as being hints, like the ''What would you think of Connor Wickham?'' from April passed among others. I hope you're right here mate
