Villa boss O'Neill won't panic buy

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill won't panic in the summer market as deadline day draws near.

"I have got time, not that much time, but enough time to address what we have been trying to do all summer," he said. "Some things have gone beyond the pale in terms of fees. So it is me addressing things now.

"I'm not breaking a trend because at some stage I know I will have to do something against my grain. But in this day and age I don't know what outlandish money is.

"Everybody said in January about the fee of Ashley Young, but if you put him on the market tomorrow morning, I think you would make a healthy profit."
