Three reasons Aston Villa should make a move for Marcus Maddison

According to an interview with the Peterborough Telegraph, Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony says Championship side Aston Villa aren’t “brave enough” to make a summer move for winger Marcus Maddison.

He confirmed that Villa scout Brian Little has watched the 23-year-old wide man on a couple of occasions this season, but that Maddison hadn’t enjoyed two of his better matches.

The Villans are almost certainly set to spend another year in England’s second tier following their 1-1 draw against Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium last weekend, which has left them 11 points from sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday with just five matches of the campaign remaining.

Manager Steve Bruce will already be looking at potential transfer targets as he looks to build a team that will challenge for automatic promotion next term, but it remains to be seen whether he will prove MacAnthony right or wrong.
