Aston Villa correspondent for Birmingham Live Ashley Preece has provided an exciting Villa Park transfer update, but admits there is ‘no chance’ on one of the club’s targets.
The Lowdown: Villa’s busy summer
Villa haven’t wasted any time in the current transfer window.
Buendia and Young won’t be the club’s only additions this summer, according to Preece, who provided an update on social media.
The Latest: Preece’s update
“Chewing the transfer fat & it’s a lively one! Villa still very much active in this window; expecting another two – possibly even three- additions; Smith Rowe remains unlikely; Alvarez an option; CDM & CB cover. #avfc Q&A happening now”
How many more signings do Villa need this summer?
The Verdict: Would it be wise to sign a ‘keeper?
It seems as if a defensive midfielder, centre-back and a forward could be the areas Villa add to before the season begins next month.
However, a backup goalkeeper could also be handy, especially with Tom Heaton set to leave the club when his deal expires at the end of the month.
Hopefully, Martinez will go through another campaign injury-free, however, if he is sidelined, Smith would then just have Steer to call on.
Signing an experienced shot-stopper who is happy to serve as cover may be a wise option, and there are plenty around on possible free transfers.
