Sky Bet Championship outfit Aston Villa will be desperate for a good season during the 2016/17 campaign, with the club set to embark on a season in the Sky Bet Championship.
Roberto Di Matteo has a massive rebuilding job on his hands at Villa Park and the club’s supporters here in the Transfer Tavern are extremely hopeful that he can add some positivity to the club once again.
The landlord here in the Tavern has spotted an intriguing article in today’s Express and Star that claims Tommy Elphick is set to become the new Villa boss’ first summer signing.
The Bournemouth central defender and captain will sign for Villa in a fee worth £3 million and the signing has delighted fans here in the Transfer Tavern.
One Villa fan is sat with his pals enjoying one of the landlord’s new top shelf cocktails and he thinks that Elphick is a superb signing for Villa, stating that he knows the Championship and is exactly the sort of player the club needs to be targeting.
Villa fans, will you welcome Elphick to the club? Is this a good signing for the club? Who else should the club look to sign?
