Villa eye Spurs and City defenders

According to various papers today, Aston Villa are chasing Manchester City defender NedumOnouha and Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda.

Villa boss Martin O'Neill is keen to add to his defensive options in the January transfer window, with Olof Mellberg's future at the club still undecided.

Onouha has broke into the Manchester City starting eleven in recent weeks and O'Neill is said to be keen on bringing the England under-21 international to Villa Park.

Chimbonda was supposedly told by Spurs boss Juande Ramos that he had no future at White Hart Lane after he questioned Ramos' decision to bring in new full-backs.

I personally feel Villa may be able to bring Chimbonda to the club but I don't foresee Nedum Onouha joining them. Both are good players and both are capable of playing for Villa but wheter or not O'Neill will be able to persuade them to join is another question.
