Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty relaxed this season now with them set for a solid enough mid-table finish.

Indeed, Steve Bruce looks to be getting a tune out of his squad again as they chalked up a solid 2-0 win over Wigan at the weekend whilst Tony Xia has hinted at the club’s summer plans on Twitter.
Certainly, he seems to have suggested that Jordan Veretout could be at the club in the summer after scoring for loan club St. Etienne over the weekend:
