The Baggies have agreed to let Villa talk to Curtis Davies, the highly rated England U21 centre back and barring a last minute hitch the deal should go through. The transfer will enrich the Baggies by £9million. The Baggies have already lost talents Jason Koumas, Diomansy Kamara, and Nathan Ellington.
If all goes according to plan Villa will suit Davies up for the Chelsea encounter. They could use his big body against Didier Drogba.
