Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who their side manages to sign in the summer window this time around.
The men from Villa Park are well backed in the market – particularly compared to other Championship sides – and so they’ll be looking to make use of that as much as possible.
Indeed, many feel the men from the Midlands are the side to beat in the second tier for 2017/18 and you can certainly understand why with the likes of promotion expert Steve Bruce in charge.
Even so, signings are still needed and the one looking most likely to happen next is Sam Johnstone from Manchester United – as per The Express & Star.
The goalkeeper spent the second half of last season on loan with the Villans and did well with him establishing himself as the number 1.
For sure, then, he’d be welcomed back by the club’s fans and it appears they could be going to do that soon with an announcement being hoped for by the club to happen this week.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
