'twas the night before deadline day and.. a unsurprising transfer rumour story emerged.
Two weeks ago, it emerged that the LA Galaxy were lurking to snap up Aston Villa's Joleon Lescott.
Have just been told @LAGalaxy put in a bid for Joleon Lescott on Wednesday and have offered a three-year contract #mls #avfc #LAGalaxy— Bob Williams (@WilliamsBob75) January 15, 2016
The Mirror have today reported that a bid is surfacing for Lescott, which funnily enough, is the exact same bid as before (three year contract, small fee).
Should Lescott move to the MLS, he will certainly be of the quality where he can make a difference, and Galaxy fans should be excited at this move. Aston Villa fans will be disappointed with the loss of Lescott considering his recent performances for the team. The Mirror have also reported that if this bid fails, then the Galaxy will return to make a free transfer in the Summer.
And thus, what may be Aston Villa's most forgettable transfer window in the history of the team begins.
Why the Mirror have wrote about this, I've seemingly no idea. I had an inkling they may be regurgitating an old article, but the LA Galaxy won't be signing Lescott right now.
Because they've got no salary cap space.
@Jamorushton It can't. They don't have any cap space, already signed their Omar Gonzalez replacement in Van Damme and Chris Klein (the club— Freddie Shires (@fshires) January 31, 2016
