The Lowdown: Busy summer
Johan Lange has helped to bolster Steven Gerrard’s first-team squad this summer with four permanent signings already. Philippe Coutinho and Robin Olsen have converted their loan spells into full-time transfers, while Boubacar Kamara and Diego Carlos have moved to Villa Park in recent weeks.
Those four deals have set NSWE back just under £50m, and it looks as if there could still be more to come.
The Latest: Jones’ comments
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones claimed that Villa are still looking at two ‘big’ additions in midfield and attack but didn’t name-check any players as possible targets.
“I think they’re still looking for a centre midfielder that can go into that team and start games.
“They’re still looking at a big addition in centre-midfield and they’re looking for a big addition in attack. It’s just about finding the right type of player.”
Which Villa signing has excited you the most?
The Verdict: Exciting few weeks
The new season is fast approaching, so it seems as if it could be an exciting few weeks at Bodymoor Heath in regards to transfers.
However, with Jones now claiming that two big additions are being lined up, it wouldn’t come as a shock if one of those potential arrivals were to eclipse the club-record £34.56m fee that Villa paid to Norwich for Emiliano Buendia last year.
