According to the always hard-working Mat Kendrick, Aston Villa and Wigan have finally agreed to a deal for Charles N'Zogbia, although the Latics have yet to confirm. If the deal goes through, the Frenchman will sign a five-year contract with the Villa (although goodness knows contracts really mean nothing these days, so why we care about their length is a bit beyond me). What is important to note is that personal terms could be discussed today, over the phone, If things go well, he could fly to England for his medical. It's unlikely, though, that N'Zogbia will join the team in Hong Kong, given he doesn't have a visa for the tournament.
More news about Hong Kong coming up -- if I can ever find a coherent schedule for this thing, that is. Or can stop listening to Barry Bannan on the Hong Kong live blog.
