Transfer Rumor: Too Good To Be True -- Aston Villa Want A Full Back

Yeah, I see why we want this guy.

According to Sky Sports (Sky Sports understands?), Aston Villa are interested in AZ Alkmaar full back Simon Poulsen. Now, this seems just a bit too good to be true for me, given that he's a Danish international who has never played in the Premier League. And that he's, you know, a full back. Granted, Poulsen is a left-sided full back, which does lend this rumor a teensy bit of credibility. If the Villa were gunning for an international right back, well, I'd say someone just reached into my dreams and is toying with me.

I'll admit, I don't know too much about Poulsen, not being a regular watcher of the Eredivisie. He did just score against VVV Venlo, but that's not what Poulsen is most famous for. No. You might recall him from the 2010 World Cup, when his header put the Dutch ahead. And yes, the Dutch and the Danish are two separate teams.

Watch the goal in slow motion. He fits in perfectly at Aston Villa!
