Villa eyeing ex-player return with crucial promotion know-how

Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern want to see signings that will get them back in the top flight and, according to The Daily Mail, they may just get that in Stewart Downing.

The Villans are looking up in 2017 in stark contrast to what went before last year which saw them relegated to the Championship.

They look once more like a team under Steve Bruce and the feel-good factor around the club seems to be returning with attendances really looking up.

This month, too, could see a return, as well, of former player Stewart Downing from Middlesbrough.

The former Liverpool winger helped another of his old clubs get into the Premier League in the form of Boro last year but has found things difficult in the top flight this season.

Indeed, he has hardly played for the Teesiders and so a move away could just tempt him.

With his quality and know-how of how to win promotion, as well as the fact he’s played for Villa before, he should do well at the club, according to our landlord and so it’s a potential deal that makes a lot of sense.
