It was largely a miserable campaign for the Aston Villa fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern, who had hoped for an instant return to the Premier League.
So, the Villains who frequent in their droves are getting ever so excited while reading transfer rumours and reports. Indeed, reports from the Daily Star today have proved no different.
They claim manager Steve Bruce is ready to kick off a summer overhaul by moving once again for Ahmed Elmohamady over the next few months. Having brought the Egyptian international to both Sunderland and Hull City in his career, the Villa Park chief is clearly a fan.
Able to operate across the backline, the 29-year-old is said to be facing an uncertain future with the Tigers following their relegation from the Premier League.
He could reportedly be sold in order to raise funds on Humberside and the local Villa fans in the bar believe he’d be a solid addition over the course of the summer.
