Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are feeling good at the moment thanks to The Daily Star’s report that the signing of Conor Hourihane is edging nearer.
The Villans have picked things up of late and certainly look set to stay away from the relegation zone under Steve Bruce.
That was the big worry previously under Roberto Di Matteo but now our local Villa punters are even dreaming of a run for the play-off places in the coming months.
Certainly, they’ll need to sign a few more players to try and help that charge along and our landlord thinks the signing of Hourihane could be just the ticket.
The Barnsley play-maker has been superb this season in the Championship and has caught the eye of many on-lookers here by the bar.
His ability to pick the right pass and create chances should be right up Villa fans’ street, too, and the report believes that the deal could soon go through.
Our landlord reckons Villa might want to get a few more players in, though, just to make sure they are absolutely ready for the rest of the campaign.
Thoughts on this one, Villa fans? Let us know below!
