Villa have signed highly rated West Ham academy product Oscar Borg on a deal taking him until June 2018. Borg has been on the radar for a couple of years, previously attracting interest at Man Utd. He can play anywhere down the right hand side in a modern wing back role & comes with a hefty comparison to Gareth Bale.
Borg will join a Villa side that has struggled down both flanks to establish a player with both the defensive and attacking qualities to pull off the role. The youngster has arguably been signed to compliment Jordan Amavi, currently injured, who showed similar promise on the left. Welcome aboard Oscar.

The rumours continue to circulate about Remi Garde’s imminent exit with Nigel Pearson remaining the bookies favourite to take the task on. Indeed the only delay on Garde’s sacking appears to be reaching an agreement on his severance package.
David Moyes is increasingly a name that won’t go away, with the suggestion being that he is prepared to drop back into The Championship. Villa have courted Moyes repeatedly over the years and this may be the time which suits both parties.
Villa’s exciting striking prospect Jerell Sellers has found himself sent out on loan to League 2 Wycombe Wanderers. The 20 year old has been impressing in the Under-21 set up & this has fuelled calls for his inclusion in the Villa first team given our impotent attack.
Seller’s loan is for the remainder of the season, his first such deal away from the club & will see him get some much needed competitive experience.
