Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern cannot wait to see how their side is going to perform in the summer market as they aim for a promotion challenge.
For sure, the men from Villa Park need to be going for the top spots in the Championship at the very least this season and so Steve Bruce needs to produce the goods in the market this year.
Who comes in, then, remains to be seen but it looks as though Glenn Whelan has been identified as an important target by the club – according to The Stoke Sentinel.
The experienced Irishman is still at Stoke but isn’t playing as much as he once was and so a drop down to Villa might just be tempting enough for him to go there.
Bruce, then, looks as though he wants Whelan to help guide his side in the middle of the park and with his vast experience that might just work out.
Our Villa fans, meanwhile, hope it is the beginning of a lot of activity in the market from their club.
