Aston Villa bookie favourites to sign a legend
Aston Villa had a miserable Christmas period as the form of the team dipped at exactly the wrong time. Paul Lambert did a brilliant job in keeping the team in the top flight last season but new doubts have surfaced, from some sections of the Aston Villa faithful, about his long term ability to take the team forward.
Aston Villa don’t have a huge budget but investment is clearly needed if they are going to consolidate and find a position of safety come May. With Benteke suffering a goal drought you might assume that better service is needed into the front line.
One player who might offer this sort of quality, and whose future remains uncertain, is Ashley Young. A one-time hero of Villa Park Young has increasingly struggled for minutes at Manchester United and he may not find a path back to the team if he stays at Old Trafford. His head seems to have gone down a bit of late and a return to his old club, Aton Villa, may be the perfect solution.
At odds of 6/1 Aston Villa are favourites with bookmaker SkyBet to return to The Midlands in January. We feel that he has something to prove to Aston Villa fans and the football world in general and perhaps he could flourish once again under the less intense glare of scrutiny Villa Park.
Aston Villa fans, would you welcome Young back with open arms and could he improve the team’s fortunes?
