Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for their side to get going next season as they look to get themselves back in the Premier League.
The men from Villa Park already feel as though they have been away from the top flight for long enough but that counts for nothing when it comes to getting results.
Indeed, the hard work really needs to be done by the likes of Steve Bruce as we wait to see who the manager manages to get in for the men from the Midlands.
Whilst we do wait, though, it appears as though the club has been given a boost ahead of the new season with Birkir Bjarnason looking ready to go from the beginning.
The Icelandic international suffered a serious injury back in March but is back up to fitness now and – according to The Birmingham Mail – he should be ready for the big kick off.
The hard-working midfielder really is the kind of player you need in the Championship with his tenacity and grit but he also possesses some good quality on the ball.
He could, then, be a big help as the Villans look to hit the ground running next season.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
