Aston Villa suffer setback in chase for experienced PL man

Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who Steve Bruce and Dr. Tony Xia manage to bring in to their club this summer.

For sure, many are expecting the club to challenge for promotion from the Championship this season coming and so the club needs to act accordingly in terms of signing players that are going to help get them over the line.

Who comes in, then, remains to be seen but whilst we do wait to see who arrives it appears as though the club is going to have to raise the bar in terms of their offer for Glenn Whelan.

Indeed, according to The Birmingham Mail, the men from Villa Park are going to have to improve their offer with £500k being rejected as Stoke want £1 million for the midfielder.

Back to the drawing board, then, for this particular deal but our landlord reckons a club like Villa, if they want Whelan enough, will be able to stump up the extra cash rather easily.

Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
