Aston Villa will be desperate to improve on yesterday’s result against Hull City as a sloppy first-half put them on the back foot, but goals from Tammy Abraham and James Chester salvaged a point.
Dean Smith will still feel that his side can secure a play-off spot in the current campaign, despite their recent run of form, but consistency will be the key in order for this to happen.
Interestingly, it looks as if the Midlands club are eyeing reinforcements this month, as according to the Irish Independent, Aston Villa are interested in signing Harry Arter.
Aston Villa have expressed an interest in signing Arter.
The Republic of Ireland international’s loan spell at the Cardiff City Stadium may soon come to an end, with a few offers on the table for the midfielder in this month’s January transfer window.
Indeed, it’s thought that parent club Bournemouth are thinking about recalling the 29-year-old.
Watford are also thought to be interested in a move for the midfielder.
Harry Arter, who is valued at £6.3 million (by Transfermarkt), would be a great signing for Aston Villa in the Championship as he should arguably be playing Premier League football, having impressed at Cardiff City this season.
The Irishman has racked up 15 caps with the Republic of Ireland, along with years of experience in the Football League.
The Villains are in desperate need of another central midfielder who can sit in the midfield and keep things tight, as the likes of Conor Hourihane and John McGinn look to break forward.
