Aston Villa

Loads of Aston Villa fans on Twitter are laughing at their financial woes after transfer rumour

To the frustration of some Aston Villa supporters, it’s been very quiet on the transfer front at Villa Park.

Much of that is down to the current financial situation Villa find themselves in. the Midlands club have taken an economic hit after failing to win promotion back to the Premier League, while the costs of recent expensive signings means Financial Fair Play is something owner Tony Xia must be extremely wary of going forward.

Until players are sold to generate money, Aston Villa are unlikely to make any signings.

One play currently being touted with a move away from Villa is the highly-rated Jack Grealish. According to Sky Sports, Tottenham and Chelsea are both interested in signing the 22-year-old, and while Villa supporters would be disappointed to see one of their most talented youth products leave the club, there’s an understanding that certain departures this summer are inevitable.

Despite Aston Villa’s tricky financial predicament, the Villans are still expected to make moves later in the transfer window, and one player they appear to be targeting is Mile Jedinak’s Australia team-mate Trent Sainsbury, the Birmingham Mail via the Sun, reports.

Aston Villa fans, however, don’t currently fancy the club’s chances when it comes to potentially signing the £0.9m-rated (via Transfermarkt) defender.
