Aston Villa’s squad has a variety of agencies representing its talent. And with the Midlands club likely to make more additions before the close of the summer transfer window, Villa Park looks set to welcome new agents with new players over the next few months.
The most used agency in the Villa squad is ICM Stellar Sports, which represents three players. The fact that the agency has already been used three times, could mean that the club has a good relationship with them, and may therefore make incomings from the same agency in the near future.
You can see who else represents Aston Villa players below, as revealed by TransferMarkt.
Emiliano Martinez – Twenty Two S.A.
Robin Olsen – HCM Sports Management
Jed Steer – ICM Stellar Sports
Tyrone Mings – Wasserman
Ezri Konsa – ICM Stellar Sports
Calum Chambers – relatives
Kortney Hause – PowerHause SG
Lucas Digne – Beckster Int.
Ashley Young – CAA Base Ltd
Matty Cash – Simply Sport Management Ltd
Douglas Luiz – Carlos Leite
Marvellous Nakamba – ICM Stellar Sports
Jacob Ramsey – Unique Sports Group
Morgan Samson – Pini Zahavi
Leon Bailey – Phoenix Sports Management
Philippe Coutinho – Sports Invest UK Ltd
Jayden Philogene-Bidace – Reflax Premium Sports LDA
Emiliano Buendia – Twenty Two SA.
Bertrand Traore – relatives
Ollie Watkins – Two Touch Agency
Danny Ings – Soccertalents
Cameron Archer – Unique Sports Group
Keinan Davis – CAA Base Ltd
The missing names from this list are John McGinn, Carney Chukwuemeka and Tim Uroegbunam, with the agents of those players not currently shown online.
Bertrand Traore and Calum Chambers, who are represented by relatives, are a dying breed in football. Most players generally turn to verified agencies, rather than entrusting a family member with the job.
With the amount of money involved in football these days, too, it’s no surprise that players turn to the likes of Jorge Mendes and others as they hope to secure more lucrative deals with certain clubs.
Of course, agents are often figures of controversy and frustration, because their objectives often naturally conflict with those of the clubs they’re negotiating with. They want the best deals for their clients and themselves, whereas teams will always want to secure the most financially beneficial agreements possible.
Nonetheless, compromises can always be found and the best-case scenario is that everyone leaves the negotiating table equally happy, feeling they’ve got a fair deal. Players feel valued, agents feel rewarded and clubs feel they’re getting a good price for the services they employ.
Hopefully for Villa, that’s the case more often than not when dealing with the above agencies.
