The Fulham midfielder could have to be sold this summer should FulhamÂ lose their battle against relegation.
He has been a rare shining light this term in an otherwise season to forget for the West Londoner’s.
Jimmy Bullard plays in central midfield. He has a great midfield engine and an excellent footballing brain. He can pick a pass in an instant and is always looking to be at the heart of his teams attack.
He bears a striking resemblance to David Beckham when taking a free kick and is more often than not, very accurate from the dead ball line.
He began his career at West Ham but failed to make a league start their. He then moved onto Peterborough United before capturing the eye of Wigan Athletic. He helped guide Wigan up from League One to the promised land of the Premiership. He spent one season in the Premier League with Wigan helping them to retain their top flight status.
His form captured the eye of Chris Coleman at Fulham who triggered a release clause in Bullard’s contract and Â£2.75m was enough to take him to London in the summer of 2006.
A cruel injury early in his Fulham career kept him out for over a year. He didn’t return until January 2008 and is now showing why he is admired so highly.
A move would depend on Fulham’s status next season. They are looking likely candidates for the drop despite yesterday’s win over Reading. He would give Villa an extra bit of creativity in an already impressive midfield.
Potential fee: Â£4-6m
Likeliness of transfer: 6.5/10
