    Don't see why not, I'm assuming, but Elmo at the club must be beneficial to help with the settling in process.

    Jota is a decent player, but I hope with the size fee that's being bandied about for Trez he's not coming to sit on the bench. I remember Trez from the world cup and he looked a very good player, hopefully we can have a Salah on our hands. Time will tell.

    Konsa instead of Engels, Luiz in for Hourihane , Trezuguet for Jota and whoever the new goalkeeper is come the end of the transfer window hopefully Butland.
  4. Aston Villa is delighted to announce the signing of Björn Engels for an undisclosed fee. The defender makes the move from French side Stade Reims, where he spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan. A former Belgian youth international, 24-year-old Engels started his career in the youth system at Club Brugge in his homeland, going on to graduate into the senior ranks. He also spent time with Greek outfit, Olympiacos prior to his stint in France. Head Coach Dean Smith said: "Bjorn is a player that I've been watching for the past 18 months. "We're very happy to have secured his services and look forward to working with him."
  5. Much prefer last season's, but screwing the fans with a new shirt every season seems to be the in thing with all clubs. I have no issues with the tight fit, as I'm well buff.
  6. Aston Villa are set to bring in Douglas Luiz from Manchester City for £15m, according to reports. Villa have already signed seven players this summer, with their spends nearly at £80m, but Dean Smith’s overhaul shows no signs of letting up with Luiz expected to become the latest arrival.
  7. Villa, reportedly in advanced negotiations with Reims central defender Bjorn Engels (Belgian), 24 years old.
  8. Aston Villa have convinced Kasimpasa to sell Egyptian international winger Trezeguet, according to reports. The 24-year-old is a man in demand this summer after telling his current club that he wishes to depart. Trezeguet put in a series of eye-catching performances during his country's disappointing run at the African Cup of Nations. Apparently 11 euro offer accepted, Villa only team at present to have actually made an offer.
  9. Aston Villa is delighted to announce the signing of Ezri Konsa from Brentford for an undisclosed fee. The defender links up with former boss Dean Smith following an impressive campaign for the Bees last term. After coming through the youth ranks at Charlton Athletic, 21-year-old Konsa was part of the England squad at the recent European U21 Championships in Italy. He was also a member of the England squad that won the U20 World Cup in 2017.
  10. That's my concern, who is partnering Mings?, Mings is not exactly premier league tried and tested, spent most of his time crocked. I like the Cahill talk, but in the same Percy piece he says this has stalled, due to his wage demands. I'm sure Dean has got a plan,
  11. Aston Villa are close to making Brentford’s Ezri Konsa their seventh summer signing in a deal worth £12 million. Konsa, 21, is set to complete his move to rejoin Dean Smith in the next 24 hours after Villa triggered his buy-out clause. John Percy
  12. Brentford defender Ezri Konsa is undergoing a medical at Aston Villa as he finalises a £10million-plus transfer, Football Insider understands. Football Insider revealed earlier today that the newly-promoted Premier League club were in advanced talks to sign centre-back Konsa in the coming days.
  13. Absolutely, but to be honest I'd be just as happy to give Steer/Kalinic the chance rather than sign a player with no sell on value. I reference the age/value as PURSLOW has stated we are looking to develop players who we can, then if we have to sell on for a profit.
  14. Aston Villa are in advanced talks to sign Brentford defender Ezri Konsa, Football Insider can reveal. The Midlands giants are looking to bring in another central defender alongside £26.5million record signing Tyrone Mings and have set their sights on prising Konsa from Dean Smith’s old club.
  15. What are our FFP retraints?, I personally don't know. FFP restraints seem only to apply to certain clubs, whilst the big clubs operate as they see fit. Case in point being PSG how do they operate within the FFP rules? However back on point, I would still pursue Butland over Heaton as it puts that position to bed for the next decade, IMO that makes sense.
  16. Good keeper, but Imo we should be signing Butland. Butland is 26, Heaton 33. I have no issue with the price Stoke have quoted (20-25 million), giving us a goalkeeper for possibly the next 10 years. I've seen 7 million quoted for Heaton and in 2-3 years we'll be looking for another goalkeeper, makes no sense. So far it's all papertalk, so we will see what happens, but I feel we will have missed a trick if we don't snap up Butland.
  17. Villa are also pursuing a £10m deal for Egypt midfielder Trezeguet, who plays for Kasimpasa in Turkey. Trezeguet was in the Egypt team knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations by South Africa in Cairo on Saturday. Manager Smith and Villa sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch were in Cairo for the match as they explore a potential deal.
  18. Aston Villa set to sign Tyrone Mings from Bournemouth for £20m AVFC have landed their top transfer target and he's expected to sign in the next 48 hours SHARE
  19. hypothetically would you take £10 million, plus Tuanzebe and McTominay for Mcginn?
  20. Bristol City have set a £30 million asking price for 24-year-old central defender Adam Webster this summer, according to the Bristol Post. The Sun report that Everton and Aston Villa are among the Premier League clubs chasing the Robins ace but have been hit with an enormous fee if they want to bring him in. The Bristol Post report says that City are trying to price clubs out of the market and are confident of keeping the defender now.
  21. Aston Villa have seen a bid rejected for Bristol City defender Adam Webster, after the offer fell below the Robins’ valuation of the player. The centre-back, who has also attracted interest from Villa’s Premier League rivals Newcastle United, only signed from Ipswich Town last summer when he agreed a £3.5m move and a four year deal. It means that the Robins aren’t under any pressure to part with the centre-half, whose impressive performances haven’t gone unnoticed in the top flight. Offered reported to be around £12 million.
  22. Seems he wants to try to break into Utd's first team plans, we can't afford to hang around waiting for him to decide unfortunately. On to the next target.

    John Terry

    Agreed, building a really solid base to rebuild from. Been a long time since i was so optimistic about anything Villa. Contract until 2021. Also looking to extend Steer's contract, which only has a year to run.

    John Terry

    John Terry has quashed any rumours of him potentially leaving Aston Villa by putting pen to paper on a contract extension with Aston Villa. The assistant head coach has been linked with several Championship managerial jobs this summer after helping guide Villa back to the top flight.
  25. Tuanzebe for £8 million would be a steal. Believe it when I hopefully see it, interestingly he is in the last year of his contract.
