I think that the club are laying down the foundations to rebuilding the squad and a few quality players will join later in the summer.

That's my thinking Stu, a lot of potential in the players I mentioned and plenty of room within the squad now to bring in a bit of proven quality.

I think a lot of deals are all depending on holidays. Agents can only do so much without the players.

Agreed Elmo and Taylor will certainly Imo stay this season and I believe that at the end of the season they are then out of contract and they can then be released. To big a job to completely over

Exactly what they said on the radio.

 

i just worry about spending so much. 

I was listening to a podcast a couple of weeks ago and they were talking about our finances and reakon we could comfortably spend around the £150M mark and have no financial worries this season or next even if we finished bottom of the table!

Without a doubt. They seem to want the club to play a certain way from top to bottom and as Smith said, that attracts a certain type of player.

I'm still worried about this rebuild. I'd have definitely kept Elphick and Whelan for a year...

If we sing Mings and Axel it wouldn't be so bad but at the minute we have Chester and Hause at centre back, and Hause hasn't even been confirmed yet. And we have no proper central defensive midfielders. Instead of buying Butland we should be concentrating on a striker, winger (don't think Jota will be first choice, and isn't prem standard), central mid and defence

Villa are launching a £14 million bid for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips. Phillips is emerging as one of Dean Smith’s top targets following promotion to the Premier League with Leeds ready to demand up to £20m for the 23-year-old.

Smith is prioritising a defensive midfielder after the departures of Glenn Whelan and Mile Jedinak and Phillips is seen as a player at the right age with vast potential after a stunning season in the Championship.

Whelan is 35.  He won't hack it in the Prem.  He just won't.  Elphick has had his chances.  He's not enough.   Smith has got all summer to get the players he needs and he can now go for the players he really wants.  There's no rush.  He'll get it done.

My main worry is that it could be too much change too soon. Loom at Fulham last year, dismantled the team that got them promoted and spent a tonne, didn't work. 

I want us to do it right. We can't afford to get relegated again

Too much change can be a problem but we released players that were not always first choice in the championship and 4 of our first choice outfield players were on loan, we need to make more signings than is ideal but assuming we sell nobody else and we do sign Mings then eight of those who started at Wembley will still be here.

Aston Villa are closing in on the signing of Club Brugge striker Wesley Moraes, according to reports in Belgium.

Reputable outlet HLN.BE is reporting that Villa have agreed a £22m deal with Brugge which will see Moraes become their record signing, eclipsing the initial £18m paid for Darren Bent in 2011.

The 22-year-old is said to have signed a five-year contract with Villa, who are flexing their muscles in the transfer market after securing promotion to the Premier League.
