Lowly-placed Aston Villa can improve with Derek Boateng signing

Posted On Monday, 31st December 2012

Derek Boateng has been linked with Aston Villa in the English Premier League

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert can turn his side’s season around if he can secure Ghana midfielder¬†Derek Boateng during the January transfer.

The Sun has revealed that Derek Boateng is being considered as someone who Lambert may look to buy in attempt to improve in the second half of the season.

The well-travelled Ghanaian has played at 8 different clubs in 7 different leagues and has 40 International caps to his name.

Currently he plays in the Ukrainian League for Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in a defensive midfield role.

At 29, Boateng would add some welcomed experience to a relatively young Aston Villa side.

While it seems unlikely Derek Boateng would inspire the whole squad to start grabbing handfuls of goals, he would offer assurance and solidity in midfield, an area that Villa have looked vulnerable so far this season.

According to the Daily Mail, Fulham are also interested in signing Boateng and value him at around £2 million.

If Villa can beat Fulham to his signature, along with at least another in form striker, he could be part of a New Year rejuvenation.

Aston Villa currently sit 17th in Premier League.

    You can’t even play Dnipro then Aston villa. Hahhhahaaahahahahahaaaaa

  3. Odadie says:

    This ‘PHD’ attitude of som Ghanaians is really sickning when it gets extreme. If my mind serves me well, Raul, Del Piero nd the soughts were still playing well at Derrick’s age and beyond. If the guy feels he still has the strength to compete, why try retire him. The guy plays very well so leave him alone!!! ‘aka mo h) kwraa dodo’.

  4. kimco says:

    my main gripe is the title of this write up. I believe that is what is spuring some of us post that way, there is no ”PHD” syndrome . Some of u guy love to exaggerate too much, what will we gain from wanting him to fail, God, u people… Derrick isn’t harry potter, ergo, he is no magician. With help from others he might be of some help to aston villa but on face value derrick isn’t anywhere near the accolade this title rains on him
