All of the latest transfer links to Villa Park:

Jordan Amavi

Villa’s underachieving French fullback has again been linked with a switch to Italian Champions League side Napoli.  With a change in agent and links across the continent, will we see Amavi in a claret and blue shirt next season?


Kundai Benyu

Is a 19 year old midfielder from Ipswich in Steve Bruce’s thinking?  Haven’t we been here before with Aaron Tshibola?  Learn more about a man shipped out to Aldershot due to “attitude” problems:


Sam Johnstone

The fourth choice Manchester United keeper improved throughout his spell at Villa Park.  However, there are many within the fanbase who remain unconvinced about the shotstopper.  Bruce was due to meet Mourinho to discuss the next steps, but will that mean a loan or permanent move to Villa Park?


Logan Bailly

Speaking of goalkeepers…is the answer to our lack of depth between the sticks to be found in this forgotten man at Celtic?  The Belgian has been peripheral to say the least under Brendan Rodgers.  A stated desire to return home may prove true, but not before Villa consider an offer:


Enes Mahmutovic

The youngster caught the eye appearing for his country last year and a number of European clubs continue to track his progress.  Villa continue to weigh up their options for an in-demand prospect on many sides radar:


Marley Watkins

Another Barnsley player?  Maybe!  A part of The Tykes recent successes, he was expected to leave in January after rejecting a new deal.  He’s since ran down the remainder of his contract is now a free agent – with a number of Championship clubs vying for his signature:


Kevin Stewart

The perennial “next big thing” at Liverpool is linked most transfer windows.  At 23, the midfield “prospect” urgently needs to find game time, with limited senior exposure to date.  Could Villa be the springboard for a career which could quickly go the way of Gary Gardners?
