Aston Villa had a very big summer transfer window, and many supporters will be wondering what their club are going to do in January as some reports suggest that Dean Smith’s side won’t be too active.
The latest on Villa and their transfer plans
According to Birmingham Live, Villa will be alert in the January transfer window but they don’t anticipate much business. Manager Dean Smith was asked about this and said: “We are looking at it in general in terms of whether there is anything we need to do. We are certainly not desperate in terms of players we need to bring in or go out. We have our finger on the pulse but I don’t envisage us doing an awful lot, to be honest.”
This should not disappoint supporters too much
The club have had a great start to the Premier League this season and sit ninth in the division (SofaScore). It looks very unlikely that they will have to be involved in a relegation dogfight like they were last season. They also have two games in hand and could move into second place if they won both.
Therefore, it makes perfect sense for Dean Smith to say that the club won’t be too active in the transfer window. The players that were bought in the summer, like Ollie Watkins, Ross Barkley and Matty Cash, have been great additions to the squad and have been key components as Villa have had an excellent start to the campaign.
Some more squad depth would be nice but it might be better to look for this next summer as it is never easy to get business done during the January window.
