Vila had been due to join on loan for the 2012/13 season with Valencia having the option to make the deal permanent but the club discovered a pelvic injury during their medical tests on the left-back and have now called the deal off despite Milan waiving the loan fee.

The former Espanyol man had been signed to replace Jordi Alba who moved to Barcelona earlier in the summer but are now expected to make a move for either Malaga's Nacho Monreal or Jose Angel of Roma.

A statement on Valencia's website www.valenciacf.com read: "Didac Villa has not passed the medical tests that have been submitted by the medical staff of Valencia Football Club.

"The medics consider that he is not 100% fit to play football immediately. Therefore, Valencia FC has called off his transfer.

"The club wishes every success to this extraordinary player in his career."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
