    Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of the midfielder Emiliano Buendía from Norwich for a club record £30m plus add-ons that could take the fee to £40m.

  • Sun, 06 Jun 2021 12:00:38 +0000: Aston Villa set to make move for Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse - Aston Villa | The Guardian
    • Midfielder has become renowned for set-piece prowess
    • Villa already agreed club-record fee for Emiliano Buendía

    Aston Villa are set to make a move for Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse, a day after agreeing a club-record £30m-plus deal to sign Emiliano Buendía from Norwich. Dean Smith is eager to complete transfers as quickly as possible as Villa prepare for another season of progress in the Premier League.

    Villa are understood to be keen to bolster their midfield and Ward-Prowse’s set-piece prowess, in particular, would boost their attacking armoury. That would prove especially useful if opponents continue to bring down Jack Grealish, who has been the most fouled player in the Premier League for each of the last two seasons – despite missing 12 league matches with a shin injury last season.

  • Thu, 03 Jun 2021 21:30:21 +0000: Owners determined to turn Aston Villa into elite club, says Dean Smith - Aston Villa | The Guardian
    • Villa have long-term plan to compete in ‘upper echelons’
    • Club want to ‘emulate and surpass’ Leicester’s progress

    Dean Smith has laid out Aston Villa’s ambition to challenge at the top of the Premier League, saying his team can take inspiration from Leicester City as they aim to disrupt the top flight’s established order. Without suggesting that they will joust for Champions League qualification as early as next season, Smith says he and the club’s owners are committed to keeping Villa on an upward trajectory until they achieve their goal.

    Villa enjoyed three sixth-place finishes in a row under Martin O’Neill between 2008 and 2010 but could not break into the top four before the club’s then owner, Randy Lerner, lost enthusiasm for the project. Smith says the current owners – the billionaire businessmen Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, who took control in 2018 – have the power and patience to make Villa elite.

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Aston Villa are now looking to strengthen their squad for the up coming season with a large number of new players touted to be on the clubs radar in the closed season. The club has been boosted lately by the resigning of goalkeeper Brad Guzan who left the club at the end of last season. The American keeper has now penned a new lucrative three year deal which will keep him at Villa park until the end of the 2015 season.

Another huge target for the club this season is Blackburns Steven N`Zonzi who is also a top target for Sunderland, Tottenham and Stoke City with the midfielder stating that he has no intention of playing football in the championship. The Frenchman is thought to be available for a fee of around five million pounds and would welcome the chance to play in the English top flight again.

Blackpool winger Matt Phillips is also believed to be on the clubs radar as the championship side looked doomed to lose their influential winger as a host of top flight clubs are now vying for his signature. The twenty one year old has had a brilliant season for his club and now looks set to move to the premier league with clubs such as Everton, Wigan, Reading and Sunderland all in for the winger.

Sheffield United defender Matt Lowton is another target for the Villa Park outfit as Paul Lambert looks to strengthen his back line for the new season and the player is thought to be his top target for his defence. Lowton is now regarded as one of the hottest prospects in English football but Villa will need to fight off stern interest from additional clubs such as feyenoord and Bersiktas.
