Aston Villa fans in The Transfer Tavern are gathered around the jukebox discussing reports that the club are interested in bringing a former England international back to the Premier League.
Garde is in desperate need of defensive reinforcements to add to his struggling side which is rooted firmly to the foot of the Premier League table.
The Villa manager could face competition for Cole’s signature in the form of MLS side New York City, who are also reported to be interested in the left back. Speaking about Cole, Garde said:
“Ashley is someone who has experience but he didn’t play for a while now. Every good player is interesting for me and he is a good player.”
The Aston Villa fans in The Transfer Tavern are pleased Garde is looking at tightening up at the back, but are unsure if Cole is the answer.
Is Cole the signing you need Villa fans? Let us know in the comments below!
