Three reasons Aston Villa should avoid signing Jack Colback

According to reports on Chronicle Live, Aston Villa are targeting a move for out-of-favour Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback.

The Chronicle Live says that Magpies manager Rafa Benitez is willing to listen to offers for the unsettled former Sunderland man, with the Daily Mail reporting last week that the two had had a training ground row.

The Daily Mail says that the 27-year-old was training away from the main group but was called to join them after someone picked up a knock, but he refused and Benitez has since told him to train alone.

The report adds that Colback is likely to be left out of the Toon Army’s 25-man Premier League squad and he looks to be a target for Villa manager Steve Bruce, whose team have endured a disappointing start to their Championship campaign as they look to secure a return to the top flight at the second time of asking.
