Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are getting very excited thanks to the report by Sky Sports that they are in advanced talks to sign James Bree from Barnsley.
The Villans have had a good few months since Steve Bruce was appointed and things have certainly looked up both on and off the pitch.
Everyone appears to be pulling together and the Villa Park crowd has returned – expectant of brighter things to come.
That could all begin with a play-off surge for the rest of this season and, certainly, the future will look good for the club if they can get the deal for Bree over the line.
The defender has really impressed for the equally impressive Barnsley side this season who have looked well at home in the Championship this year.
That, though, looks to be coming at a cost as it so often does for clubs their size as the likes of Villa look to poach their best stars.
The deal for Bree could go soon in the next few days, then, and our landlord thinks it would be a very good signing for the Midlands club.
Happy with this one, Villa fans? Let us know below!
