Cahill move boring but probable!

Aston Villa defender Gary Cahill is being linked with a move to Birmingham City. Predictable, unexciting but, given the way transfer windows normally go, it probably will happen.

However, with future Liverpool boss Martin O'Neill reportedly wanting 4million for the 22-year-old, both Birmingham and Derby County are hoping that a loan deal can be arranged rather than a permanent switch.

According to the Express & Star, Cahill is having talks at Villa today regarding his future today. Whatever answer he is given, Cahill will have to make a decision after being punted out to both Burnley and Sheffield United on loan in recent years.

Few Villa fans appear to be keen on seeing Cahill leave their club. Villa Park season ticket holder Jonathan Fear, in an article on Vital Villa, said: "(I'm) still not convinced a young, quality defender like this should be being sold and hope he isn't." Then again, don't be too surprised if some fans change their view to "O'Neill knows what he is doing" if and when the player is sold!

Sadly, though, it's just not possible to get excited about the possible move and the current January window is one of the most boring since the current transfer system was introduced - and not just for Birmingham!

4million is an absolute joke. No surprise there, then.

You guys should be used to being underwhelmed, that word sums you up...... Underwhelming !!!! On Cahill, he is worth 4 million, I personally dont want him to go as I think he is an excellent prospect, the idea of loaning him seems a good one though

Cahill is a bargain at 4m. No way Villa should sell him. Future England international. Gutted if you lot get him!

BluesBro - Tell me why 4m is an "absolute joke" - GC is a very good player - I dont want to see him go, although I think he will cos of the pecking order situation at present - He will do a good job either in the prem or the championship if u do go down - Who were u expecting to get - John Terry!! - Be realistic - You are the blues of Small Heath and not of the Kings Road - Mark my words if he does sign (hope not) you will be changing your tune

What worries me is that Cahill is very good friends with agent Ridgewell, and that may make the move appealing. My mates who are Albion fans reckon Cahill is the answer to their defensive problems, and they are probably right. Bloose fans moaning about signing him don't know what they are on about. The kid is class (remember THAT goal at VP?). I just hope MON keeps him at VP, although a loan to the end of the season would be a good move for all concerned.

i would be dissapointed if we lost him, i think once he gets a good run of games his quality will shine through and i think he has enough potential to be a future england international. But i think o'neill likes his defenders really tall and i can't really complain because he has done pretty well so far. I'd hate to see him go to the blues and do really well, for 4 million i think you will have a bargain in a year or so.

if a player wants to leave you can't really force him to stay but at least you can offer him new terms that might inspire him to stay
