Aston Villa eyeing up 31-year-old as Steve Bruce plans 2017/18 title surge

Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see what Steve Bruce does for their side in the transfer market when it opens in the summer.

Things finally look to be turning around for the men for Villa Park and they’ve certainly been waiting for that for some time.

The club have been through some really barren moments over the last couple of seasons but Steve Bruce appears to have restored hope and there is certainly belief that they will challenge for Championship glory next season.

That, though, will depend on the club being smart in the summer window and it appears – according to The Sunday Mirror, via Sports Mole – that George Boyd is on their shopping list.

The experienced Burnley man has been in Championship promotion races before, of course, and would certainly be a good acquisition for the Villans if they managed to get hold of him from the Turf Moor club.

He could be the first of Steve Bruce’s transfer business in the next window, then, and our landlord reckons there’ll be plenty more.

Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
