Alex McLeish has promised there will definitely be new signings in the summer after the January transfer window closed quietly at Villa last night.
A loan for LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane and the capture of Shamrock Rovers defender Enda Stevens were the sum of McLeish’s business last month.
But the manager insists he is content to proceed with the current squad for the remainder of the campaign with a view to strengthening in the summer.
“It is not for me to say, but we have definite targets and I have definite plans on what we can do.
“I know there were fans at the gates of the training ground.
“I know they get excited about new faces – to see a bit of change or a new addition, that kind of thing, and I am fully aware of that.
“I can understand the fans are anxious to see new faces, top names, but it was not going to happen here this season.
“Building your own team sometimes isn’t an overnighter – for Mark Hughes it might be, but not for me.”
McLeish insists it is too soon to discuss the scale of his summer rebuild, which will depend on the availability and cost of his targets and the outside interest in Villa’s players.
Asked if he would be making wholesale changes in the summer, he replied: “It depends... it will need to be careful selection with a tweak here and there
