Aston Villa emerge in the running for Belgian starlet

Remi GardeThe Aston Villa supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had much to shout about this season and Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Manchester City was about as good as it has got for the West Midlands-based club.

New boss Remi Garde is keen to rectify the club’s poor start however and has already cast his eye towards January recruits for his team.

One Villa supporting pundit is having a chat with one of his pals over a pint when he spots an article in Shoot that suggest the new boss wants to lure Belgian starlet Samuel Bastien to Villa Park.

The 19-year-old Anderlecht youngster is currently on loan with a Serie B club has emerged as a target for the Premier League club, with Garde keen to strengthen in midfield.

One fan wearing the latest Villa jersey can’t help but feel the move would be a mistake and says the club need proven Premier League players and not inexperienced young lads.

Villa fans.. Do you agree? Is the Belgian too short on experience? Who should Garde target?
