Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are really looking forward to the rest of the season and that is a feeling they’ve not been used to for some time.
The Villans have had it tough in recent years, of course, but there’s real positivity about the club and many of their punters here in the bar are expecting them to really challenge at the top of the league.
For sure, then, the hard work is well underway both on and off the pitch to try and achieve promotion and one of the latest reports is suggesting that the club is interested in signing Jordan Rhodes.
Indeed, according to The Daily Mail, the experienced Championship striker is high on Steve Bruce’s shopping list before the end of the campaign and so we could see a deal struck before the window shuts.
A top player at that level, Rhodes has found it hard in recent times to really find the form that made him so feared in the second tier at Blackburn.
If he can re-discover that, though, he’s bound to be a hit.
Rhodes is a top striker on his day but he has just been utterly hammered confidence wise after his move to Middlesbrough a couple of seasons didn’t go well.
If Bruce can get him firing again, though, Villa could well be on their way out of the second tier.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
