According to Squawka, Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce is looking at one of his former players as an option to boost his ranks with our local Villans here in the Transfer Tavern hoping he’ll help them get promoted.
There’s been an air of optimism around the club since Bruce came in through the Villa Park doors that the club can get back to where their fans feels they belong and the latest name to be linked with the revolution is Eldin Jakupovic.
The Hull City stopper worked under Bruce for the Tigers last season as they got promoted but saw his manager leave in the summer as he found his position untenable.
Since he has seen Mike Phelan appointed permanently as their boss as they look to stay in the top flight, but with them struggling, he may be tempted to gamble on a move to the Midlands.
Villa are currently 14th in the Championship, five points off of the play-off places.
