Villa have made some unusual signings in the past, can you identify some? First up, who is this who Villa landed in 2016?

The Verdict: Shrewd target?

Villa have just two senior goalkeepers on the books in Emiliano Martinez and Jed Steer after failing to replace Tom Heaton over the summer.

So, bringing in Cooper could help Villa when it comes to solving their long-term goalkeeping plans.

Cooper is clearly highly thought of amongst a plethora of teams in the top two divisions, so Villa winning the race for his services and then potentially loaning him back to Argyle could be a smart call.
