The Lowdown: Two in
NSWE and Johan Lange were busy on deadline day, bringing in two more players for Steven Gerrard.
Defensive midfielder Leander Dendoncker arrived from Wolves in a deal worth £13.5m, with centre-back Jan Bednarek joining later in the day on loan from Southampton. That took Villa’s summer business to seven players signed at a cost of £63m, but it looks as if the club wanted more.
The Latest: Villa interest
Romano took to Twitter on Friday to provide an update on Tottenham forward Moura.
He stated that Villa and Newcastle made a move for the Brazilian on Thursday and added that ‘there are chances for a free move’ with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
Are you Gerrard in or Gerrard out?
The Verdict: January?
Should Moura’s situation remain the same in January, then it could be worth Villa revisiting their late summer interest. Philippe Coutinho was the club’s only attacking addition over the summer, with Villa selling Trezeguet and Anwar El-Ghazi and loaning out Bertrand Traore. [Transfermarkt]
