In case you haven't read already, Aston Villa have appointed Tony Coton as a goalkeeping specialist scout.

Coton has loads of experience including recently working at Bolton and working under Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

He is said to be scouting goalkeepers at all levels.

Do you think we could be looking for a new number 1?

Most likely. I think we should go for Asmir Begovic.

Top goalkeeper but wouldn't come cheap and would he leave Stoke for us?

Butland is rated very highly still so he could always be an option?

I think I heard that he is out of contract this summer and I guess it is what we do this summer that will attract such players.

Butland is/was one of the most promising goalkeepers in the world so if we got him I'd be absolutely ecstatic

Guzan does need replacing so hopefully this is what this addition means

Begovic wouldnt leave Stoke for us and his fee would be too much for under Lerner

Butland was seen a s big prospect but what has he done for the last couple of years?

Krul from Newcastle would be a good signing and think he would leave Newcastle but maybe the fee may be high

I heard Ray Wilkins talking about him the other day and said he is still very highly rated in the game. People compare him to Joe Hart at that age. Just needs game time.

We need one thats for sure. Guzan is ok.... But ok doesn't get you very far in the premier league. We need an upgrade. As for who? Haven't the foggiest
