Continuing yesterday's rumours of a United swoop for Spanish international David Villa, today's tabloids confirm that the striker has sacked his agent for failing to secure him a big money move away from Valencia. According to The Daily Mirror: "Villa is now weighing up his own future without his once-trusted adviser."
The Mirror also claims that Watford will ask United to extend the loan deal of midfielder Tom Cleverley at Vicarage Road. The England youth star has been a revelation for the Hornets, bagging five goals in 12 appearances.
