Things were absolutely shocking for Aston Villa fans in the Transfer Tavern last season but finally, they’ve found a little optimism, hurrah!
In Roberto Di Matteo, they have a manager who wants to take the club in an upwards direction and for what seems like the first time in a while, there is hope in the Midlands.
But this news won’t be quite as well received, after ESPN suggested that West Brom are lining up a bid for Villa striker Jordan Ayew.
After their deal for West Ham striker Diafra Sakho fell through earlier this week, the Baggies have been left a little short in striking options with doubt still surrounding the future of want-away striker Saido Berahino.
As for Villa, they’ve hoping they can do without the Ghanaian international as they make their Championship debut later this afternoon.
They will be targeting an instant promotion back to the Premier League after the disappointment of last season, where it seems like everyone in the footballing world was taking the mickey.
