Just how much of this is paper talk and how much holds water, The Mirror says: that Russell Martin is wanted by old boss Paul Lambert at Villa and Simeon Jackson is set to sign on loan for Brighton.
The Jackson loan deal has been covered in many places including on here and Brighton's local paper, so that doesn't take a lot of insight. It almost as good as sorted.
As tfor Martin, who the hell wouldn't want a very reliable, versatile defefender who can score goals as well ? I think the fact that Martin has played under Lambert at Wycombe along with being a major part of Lambert's success at City for 3 seasons, and now is under Hughton; may have more to do with it than actual fact.
It is probably more a case of because he did play for him - he will be wanted again or 2+2=5
