NSWE reportedly changed tact when it comes to Aston Villa’s summer transfer business, according to Birmingham Live.
And, as to be expected, the inside information on Villa’s owners has got a lot of supporters talking on social media.
Birmingham Live were told by a Villa insider last month that Villa had planned for a quiet summer transfer window.
How many more signings do Villa need this summer?
However, as we now know, it has been anything but, with Emiliano Buendia joining on a club-record deal, Ashley Young returning and a £25m offer for Emile Smith Rowe rejected just over a week after the window officially opened.
NSWE had a change in thought when it comes to off-field dealings, as they reportedly see a real opportunity to catch and leapfrog the likes of Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham.
Villa fans react
Ashley Preece of the Birmingham Live shared the story on Wednesday afternoon.
@villareport shared Preece’s claims on Twitter that evening, which led to these Villa fans heaping praise on the club’s hierarchy and one describing the news as ‘exciting’.
“Tears in my eyes! This is ambition! MY OWNERS!”
“I love our owners”
“We are massive”
