Football: Villa try to tempt Revivo from Vigo
Friday 23 April 1999
John Gregory, the Villa manager, has lined up a meeting with Revivo's agents after deciding the exciting attacker was his major summer transfer target. However, the player may be tempted to stay in Spain after Toshack revealed he was one of the top names on his shopping list too.
Revivo caught the eye against Liverpool this season, helping Celta win home and away in the Uefa Cup. Gregory wants him to play with Dion Dublin, a signing that would squeeze out Julian Joachim and leave Stan Collymore in the cold at Villa Park.
The Scottish Premier League is to hold an emergency board meeting after indications that Dundee are to accept finance after all from the controversial businessman Giovanni di Stefano. It has been reported that Dundee's vice- chairman, Derek Soutar, is to step down with Di Stefano, who has business interests in Serbia and Iraq, buying him out.
It has also been confirmed by the Scottish Premier League that its final round of fixtures on Sunday 23 May will kick off at 12.30pm and not at 6.05pm, as originally requested by Sky Television.
The long-running dispute between Celtic and Croatia Zagreb over the transfer of Mark Viduka to the Parkhead club was finally settled yesterday. Celtic withheld pounds 1.5m of the transfer fee when the striker took unauthorised leave of absence in his homeland, Australia, soon after the deal was agreed. Zagreb received only pounds 900,000 and his first club, Melbourne Knights, got pounds 600,000, but the Croatian club have now had another payment.
Graham Kelly, the former chief executive of the Football Association, has ruled himself out of the running for the equivalent vacancy in Scotland.
