Stephens bid rejected?

It is being reported that the Villa bid for Dale Stephens has been rejected. How much the bid was is open to question. Some sources state £600,000, which would be an under valuation, others £1.5m, which would be more realistic.

Chris Solly briefly appeared on Wikipedia last night listed as a West Ham player, but that has now been corrected. However, as the transfer deadline approaches, it looks as if he will not be taking a one way trip northbound on the Free Ferry en route to Chadwell Heath. I think that most Charlton fans would like to see last season's Player of the Year stay this side of the river, certainly I would.

Seeing a rampant Everton thumping Leyton Orient 5-0 makes me pleased we didn't progress further in the Capital One Cup. Hopefully we would have lost by a smaller margin, but it would have been a wasted journey that tired and possibly injured players.
