I thought it worth opening this thread to gauge people's opinions about this signing (medical latter today).

When I first heard this earlier I thought "we're signing a cover defender". Now I've had time to research Crespo I'm wondering whether Tim Sherwood is hoping he will be our first choice right back.

Putting aside the fact that 1 million euros is probably less than the price of a squad player these days, think about the job that Hutton does. He seems to think that he's a right winger and has the lion's share of our match day crosses without ever creating an "assist", while creating a damn great defensive hole a lot of the time.

Maybe Sherwood has decided that he wants a totally defensive right back (which Crespo is) so that there is always three in our back line when Amavi breaks forward.

So, have we bought ourselves a first choice right back for 1 million euros?

its anyone's guess, but i'm thinking he's a squad player, in Bacuna Richardson and Crespo we have subs that can cover every position except CF.

There's a twitter that has been leaving a few cryptic clues of late....still assessing their reliability, but whoever it is has hinted today that Hutton could be on his way (looking for fresh challenge)....Crespo could start at RB on 8 August for all we know!

1 Million Euros for a solid, La Liga quality central defender, who can fill in at fullback and even in the midfield. Looks like a complete steal in today's market and I'm optimistic with this signing. I can see him being Sherwood's John O'Shea, coming on to fill whatever gap we need and help hold onto a narrow lead, or provide cover for our Central Defenders, who all seem to pick up injuries at the same time every season.

guys twitter is @whispers_listen

He had details of the Ayew deal up 18 hours before official announcement...also saying Adebayor will be done by Wednesday latest, but likely by tomorrow.

Say we are negotiating with a midfielder now and Sherwood wants him in before the Forest game....so if the full back is right aswell, I make that another 3 players coming in this week!

Very interesting... Has gotten some of the details the press has emerged with today correct back on Friday, regarding the Ayew deal, but still no mention of Crespo yet.

A Summary of his News:

Says our Marketing Director, Ugo Ehiogu, is leaving us for another job outside of football.
Says a new deal for Clark is on the table.
Says Hutton will leave for a new challenge.
Says Adebayor will sign by Wednesday at the latest.
Says there is a photoshoot booked for Tuesday morning, so I'll assume it's for Crespo's kit pictures.
Says we want Cambiasso, but he is debating retirement. Will sign for us if he wants to continue playing, but do have a backup defensive midfielder target ready to go if Cambiasso turns us down.
Says we will bid for Holgate if Manure pass on him when his trial finishes.
Says we have bid for an attacking midfielder over the weekend and are negotiating.
Says we're trying to offload Hutton, N'Zogbia, Guzan, Baker, Tonev, Cissokho, and Senderos, but it's easier said than done.
Says Baker and Robinson may leave soon, either loans or permanent deals. Either is possible.

re - @whispers_listen

tweeted that Vlaar offer was pay as play, prob in knowledge of his actual medical condition and why no one snapped him up asap.

looks like Adebayor is prob gonna happen, a world beater in top form, lets hope TS can get him firing, and would fit well with Ayew

I'd want Baker and Robinson out on loan. The first reminds me of Collins, the second looked good in pre-season. If someone's willing to pay their wages then defer the decision on keeping them both for a year.

Correct, he's certainly not the marketing director for Villa as the twitter guy says.

Apparently we tried to sign Crespo in 2007 when he was back up to Dani Alves at Sevilla. Hasn't done much since and didn't live up to his early promise. Was in a relegated team last season. Not overly enthusiastic with this one.

We don't seem to learn from our mistakes, he sounds like another Luna, and well let him go for a free next season. We've got enough Defenders now, no need to get any more. Use our youth as back up if they are so good.

RB - Bacuna, Hutton
LB - Amavi, Cissokho, Bennett
CB - Richards, Okore, Clarke, Baker, Senderos

Plus our youngsters. Should only go for a player now if someone special is offered to us/becomes available.

He's a totally defensive full back who does the simple things well. He already sounds better than Hutton. Very Happy

On the negative side Cordoba were relegated, and although Crespo played 26 times he wasn't man of the match once.

He seems like a decent no nonsense buy for 1 million euros.

I like him already. Reminds me a bit of Antonio Luna- must be the beard.

Damn it - I liked Luna. Thought he was a bit overwhelmed by the pace of EPL though, which seemed to be his downfall. (I'm probably going to be verbally shot down about this...lol)
Can't wait for my saturday night midnight ritual to start again next week - I'm really excited for the first time in years.
