Losing Mile Jedinak would be big blow for Aston Villa

Aston Villa midfielder Mile Jedinak has agreed terms with another unnamed European club according to a report in the Australian news outlet The World Game.

What’s the story?

Jedinak joined Aston Villa from Crystal Palace in 2016 and he was one of their shining lights last season, and has gone on to make 61 league appearances for the club.

However, the Villans are going through serious financial troubles and with the 33-year-old one of the club’s highest earners on a reported £40,000 a week, the club would massively reduce their wage bill if he departs.

According to the report, the Australian international is set to join a European club outside one of the major leagues of Spain, Germany, Italy and France.

Big loss for Villa

Jedinak was one of the main driving forces in the Villa team that saw them get to within one game of returning to the Premier League.

The defensive midfielder will be a very difficult man to replace, and if Grealish leaves too as is expected, Villa will have lost the heart of its team.

It’s understandable why Villa would allow the highly-paid 33-year-old to leave this summer, but he proved his worth with his experience and assuredness and his loss will be felt keenly by the club and could derail their 2018/19 campaign.
