Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are really looking forward to next season already with many thinking that it will yield promotion.
Of course, there is still a long way to go before that can actually happen and, as Villa are well aware, pretty much anything could happen to them between now and then but the hope is certainly growing.
The summer, then, is the next big opportunity to make some momentum for the club and Steve Bruce must already have a good idea of the kind of player he wants to bring in.
And, as per The Birmingham Mail, it looks as though Chris Samba could be a part of the training plans ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
Indeed, they believe that Samba is going to stay working with the club, as he has been recently, with the view to him potentially earning a contract with the Villans ahead of the new season.
He could, then, be the club’s first signing of the window and our Villa punters are hoping that he’ll be just the tip of the iceberg in that respect.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
