Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are excited by The Daily Mail claiming they are after Conor Hourihane from Championship rivals Barnsley.
Barnsley have impressed so far this season with Hourihane right at the forefront of that and it appears that his performances have made him a wanted man.
Indeed, according to The Mail, Villa are not on their own with their interest in him with Sheffield Wednesday also keen on signing him to boost their promotion hopes.
Both Villa and the Owls have good chances of making the play-offs at least by the end of the season if they can get some momentum going and it appears Hourihane is the man both want to help instigate that.
The report is alleging that Wednesday have already made an enquiry about the Barnsley man, though, so if Villa want to sign him they had better get going with an enquiry of their own.
Our landlord reckons he should move to Villa of the two, though, with them set for a brighter 2017 under Steve Bruce.
Where should Hourihane go? Let us know in the comments below!
