Aston Villa have struggled to find their feet so far this season but gave themselves breathing room with Tuesday’s victory over Rotherham.
The win at Villa Park ended a run of five games without victory across all competitions, which had seen the pressure upon the shoulders of Steve Bruce increase significantly.
With Villa looking to keep chase with the rest of the promotion hopefuls in the Championship, the club have already begun to cast an eye towards potential deals in future transfer windows and reports suggest they are keen on signing Gary Cahill.
The former Villa man sees his contract with Chelsea expire at the end of the season and it is claimed Bruce’s side are eyeing a move when he becomes available on a free transfer, as they seek the addition of an experienced defender.
After John Terry impressed last season, moving for 32-year-old childhood Villa fan Cahill would be a wise move to bolster the club’s defence and the veteran certainly still has enough left in his tank to make a lasting impression.
