Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are very excited about the squad they might be able to build under Steve Bruce at the moment.
The Villans have been through the mill in recent seasons but they look set to be ready for a play-off charge next season under their current boss.
Indeed, there’s very few managers about that guarantee promotion but Bruce is about as close as you can get and you can already see he knows exactly what he wants in terms of players.
The young stopper has struggled for minutes at United but he certainly looks like the kind of player that could excel when given the chance – as he has been at Villa.
Johnstone, then, could be the latest player to join the Villa revolution permanently and our local Villans can’t wait to see who else comes in.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
