Aston Villa recently sacked Steve Bruce after a poor start to their Championship campaign that now sees them sitting in 15th place, but new boss Dean Smith will be hoping to turn things around at Villa Park quickly in order to at least match the acheivements of last season.
Villa reached the play-off final at the end of the last campaign but missed out on promotion and the riches of the Premier League with a 1-0 loss to Fulham.
This meant that the club were plunged into a financial crisis and struggled to pay tax bills let alone sign players in the summer. However, Bruce was able to re-sign Manchester United loanee Axel Tuanzebe.
The 20-year-old was often played out of position at right-back under Bruce, but even if Dean Smith uses him in the centre of defence, the Villans could do better than the England U21 international.
So, Villa fans, now the club is financially stable under the new owners, would you like to see Axel Tuanzebe signed on a permanent deal or could you buy better? Have your say by voting in the poll below.
