Aston Villa: Matt Maher drops fresh transfer update

Aston Villa have been particularly busy throughout the latest January transfer window in regard to their business deals whether it be bringing new players to the club like Lucas Digne and Philippe Coutinho or moving some of their current ones out on loan such as Wesley and Keinan Davis among others.

What’s the latest?

According to a recent Twitter post from journalist Matt Maher, any incoming transfers at Villa now look “unlikely” to take place before the January transfer window deadline hits.

Who did Aston Villa beat in their 1st Premier League win of 2021?

Now that deadline day has arrived, it seems as though the Midlands club may not need to get any shirts printed for any potential new faces coming through the door.

Maher also added that current Villa players Matt Targett, Jed Steer and Kaine Kesler-Hayden are “set to depart on loan.”

Fans will be gutted

With loan deals made for Coutinho and goalkeeper Robin Olsen, the Villans have also managed to secure permanent deals for Digne on a four-and-a-half-year deal worth a reported fee of £25m, as well as defender Calum Chambers from Arsenal as a free agent on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

This business shows just how much the Villa owners have been willing to back the manager Steven Gerrard as he looks to push the club forward.

Even though their club have been busier than most when it comes to signing new players this month, some Villa fans will be gutted to hear that there may not be a final name through the door on deadline day.

Have you been pleased with Villa's January transfer window?

With Villa not managing to sign a central-midfielder as of yet this month after missing out on a deal to sign Rodrigo Bentancur, who has joined fellow Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, it seems as though Steven Gerrard will have to make do with the options he has at his disposal for the time being until the summer transfer window opens.

Moving forward, with Villa currently sitting in 11th place in the Premier League table with 26 points on the board from 21 games played, Gerrard’s side are still in a good place to use their January recruits and attack the remainder of their campaign to try and finish as high up the table as possible, even without any late incoming transfers.
