    yes I know it's Twitter and it's as trust worthy as an Albion fan but there's a number of accounts saying we are to bid for him this week,with one account saying we've had a bid accepted.

    if it turns out to be true,be a weird signing. He's very similar to jack price, maybe has the edge over him in his defensive work but with Paul lambert apparently loving the new pirlo, you cant have them both! ( well I wouldn't anyway)

    We've got about 27 centre midfielders. I doubt we'd try to get him, wouldn't move us much up the division. But the Lambert link does make you think doesn't it.

    Pat Murphy has called it out as untrue. That's good enough for me.

    Unless PL knows he's always been wasted as a defensive midfielder and is in fact actually a clinical striker then 'no thanks'

    Another midfielder... Lambert has already said we have too many.

    Sorry but I can say that this is a trash rumour

    Exactly the type of pointless side ways move we should stay well clear of.

    We might have plenty of midfielders but when you look at it...

    Price - defensive
    Saiss - defensive
    Prince - more attacking/box to box
    Edwards - attacking
    Coady - defensive
    Tex - number 10. Won't be here long
    Ronan - number 10.
    Bright - number 10
    Gibbs White - can play literally anywhere, probably even in goal
    Evans - playmaker

    Loads of midfielders but very little in the way of defensive ones that can actually defend.

    Load of old Tosh.
    We're supposed to be reducing our player headcount not collecting more for the exclusive midfield club!

    There's 3 that you listed there, plus prince has played that role at times. We only really play one or a maximum of two at any given time, so really don't think Lambert will feel he needs another.

    Very good player but not what's really needed, particularly after Evans and Saville both impressed in the cup game, which is likely to have earned them another chance.

    Villa fans scape goat and not someone I would be happy with , makes butch Wilkins look like he played an expansive passing game.

    He just needs a new start. Was talk about England call ups a couple years ago.

    When we played then in a friendly last year he really impressed me, right time right place, move the ball smooth and accurately.

    But I'm not about excitement from the middle two, give me two Jack Prices and I'd be happy. Let the attacking players do that and have that bit more freedom.

    Maybe this is part of Lambert's secret strategy of rolling out the 0-10-0 formation.

    .

    Prince isn't a defensive player. Price and Coady are not good enough for a promotion challenge.

    Saville and Evans are out of contract in the summer apparently so maybe this rumour is another we will keep hearing probably made up by villa fans who don't like him or Lambert

    No doubt he's a player that has probably crossed PL's mind as someone he'd potentially like in the future. He did sign him for Villa after all and play him, so any rumors are just based on this. There's no way we're in for him now. But in the summer it may be a different story

    I agree with most of your assessments, other than Jack Price. I'd say he's developing into more of a playmaker every time I see him play.

    Either way, Westwood is not an improvement enough on any of the above to warrant signing another midfield player!

    I think both may have a 1 year extension option, which is why we are not yet rushing to offer either new contracts.

    Good, Wolves don't need another player of this type.

    Will we give Saville and Evans a new deal? I don't think they've done enough to show they will ever be regulars in this team, so let them go..

    I'd be surprised if we allowed Jack's contract to lapse. He's currently our best all-round central midfielder, a fan favourite and apparently rated by PL.
