Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are pretty sick to the back teeth with this season and the way it has failed to live up to any expectations.
Coming into it they were hopeful that a play-off place could be secured but things under Roberto Di Matteo were not good and he eventually lost his job.
Steve Bruce came in, then, and hope once again began to rise as the Villa Park club started to find some momentum but the brakes have come on once more and the club are looking stalled yet again.
That was added to by a 2-0 loss at Newcastle last night and now it appears – according to their rivals Birmingham City’s website – that one of their young talents is going to cross the Second City divide.
The Blues aren’t exactly having a vintage season themselves with Gianfranco Zola coming in and failing to carry on Gary Rowett’s good work but it looks like they’ll be getting U23 defender Ben Swift in.
Swift is on trial with the club at the moment and played in their U23 loss against Sheffield United so it looks like he could be on his way from Villa Park.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
