Aston Villa linked with another eye-catching move as they look to kick-start season

Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern have not been impressed with what their side has offered so far this season in the Championship.

The men from Villa Park were one of the favourites for promotion at the start of this campaign but things have certainly not gone to plan since the first kick-off under Steve Bruce.

Indeed, they are yet to win a game from their opening three fixtures and sit eight points behind early pace-setters Wolves so they must win their next match with Norwich.

Work, then, needs to be done and it seems as though Steve Bruce is lining up another eye-catching move – according to The Daily Mail – with Jack Wilshere getting linked.

Villa have already signed the likes of John Terry to capture the attention of many and so signing Wilshere would likely have a similar impact on on-lookers.

However, only results on the pitch will really cheer up our local Villa punters and so, if Wilshere signs, the England international would have to help them achieve that.

Landlord’s Verdict

Wilshere had a decent season at Bournemouth last year but fell out of the side towards the end of the campaign and looks unwanted at Arsenal right now.

For sure, then, is career needs salvaging and so a move to Villa could give him the opportunity to do just that. It is a real risk, though, with the Championship one of the toughest leagues around physically and so it remains to be seen if Steve Bruce thinks it’s worth a punt.

Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
