The Verdict: Wasting no time

Villa have wasted no time ahead of Gerrard’s first full season in charge and the summer window opening when it comes to both their academy and first-team, with Philippe Coutinho making his move to Villa Park from Barcelona permanent.

The news regarding Simpson will go under the radar as a result of the Brazilian’s full-time move, however, it looks like a shrewd move by Villa officials for their exciting academy.

A number of clubs in England and Scotland were keen on Simpson’s services, so Villa appear to be edging close to an academy coup which Gerrard could benefit from in years to come.
