However Villa fans gathered around the pool table are less than impressed with reports from the Express and Star that Paul Lambert is chasing Watford striker Troy Deeney in a summer move.

The 24-year-old is out of contract during the summer and has failed to agree new terms at Vicarage Road which could see him leaving the Championship club as a free agent.

Deeeny came through the ranks at Villa Park before being released as a 15-year-old trainee but he could be inclined to make the move back with Lambert searching for a goalscorer that can fire the goals required at the Midlands club.

The former Walsall striker has netted 12 times in his 24 matches for Watford this season but he has no experience of playing in the Premier League and although he offers value for money, punters are unsure if he is the player Villa need.

Lambert is set to let England international Darren Bent leave the club during the summer and that opens up a space that Deeney could fill.

Is Deeney really what Villa need? Rate the rumour below.

    Slow, Not skilful enough for the championship and if he leaves on a free having been looked after so well by the club while in prison this year then not loyal either

    Why would Troy want to go to a team in terminal decline? Even if he doesn’t stay at Watford, a team who now have a lot more funding available than Villa,he won’t want to to end up at a team 70 percent certain to make the drop?
