Ince: Aston Villa can’t afford Santa Cruz

Aston Villa have been linked with a £18million bid for the former Bayern Munich striker.

Ince said: “Villa can’t afford him.

“When it gets near to the transfer window, people start coming out with all these things.

“Roque signed a four-year deal, he came out and said he loves it at Blackburn.

“He wants to stay here and we want him to stay here.

“Until that changes, that’s the only situation that matters.”
