The latest transfer news and rumour coming out of Villa Park:
Mooy has been a stand-out performer as Huddersfield seek a first promotion to the Premier League.
The Australian’s future remains unclear and will certainly not be concluded until the outcome of The Championship playoff final against Reading on 29th May.
What is clear is that the midfielder is in high demand, with reports that Premier League sides (Newcastle & Crystal Palace) have already expressed interest.
There are a host of Championship sides, including Villa, who are separately reported to have registered an interest.
- Position: Central Midfield.
- Involved in 13 goals during 2016/17 season.
- Huddersfield’s ‘Player of The Season’.
- Selected for EFL ‘Team of The Season’.
- Selected in PFA ‘Championship Team of The Season.’
- Age: 26
- Full international for Australia.
- Fee: £10 million +
- Parent Club: Manchester City.
The Turkish international, who was being scouted by Villa in April of this year is set to sign a bumper deal keeping him at Besiktas.
The midfielder was increasingly attracting interest throughout Europe, which had prompted posturing from the Turkish giants to the extent that they slapped a huge £17 million valuation on him.
Whilst every player has his price, it now looks more than likely the huge 5 year deal will keep the former Arsenal youth player in Turkey.
Despite Villa’s Financial Fair Play restrictions, the summer transfer window is likely to see Villa Park fitted with a revolving door once again.
The side ultimately came well short of it’s target of promotion last term, despite significant investment from owner Tony Xia.
Bruce will undoubtedly be charged with continuing the cull of flops from Bodymoor Heath, freeing up funds and wages to freshen up the squad still further.
