According to the Birmingham Mail, who appears to be the most reliable news source. Claim that Aston Villa are not going to pursue Kiyotake. Aston Villa have submitted a transfer inquiry about the Japanese midfielder and news outlets claim that Nuremberg want a big fee for their midfielder. Aston Villa are very unlikely to pay the 8 million fee that has been demanded and as a result, will not follow up their inquiry.
I know little about this player, except for the fact that he has had a very good season and appears to be rated. However, I don’t see Aston Villa buying any more players until they sell a couple more. But from this transfer inquiry, Aston Villa fans will now know that Lambert still wants to add to his team, particularly the midfield.
Kiyotake is an attacking midfielder, so perhaps Lambert is still looking for a player that can play behind the forward. I thought that was why Bacuna was brought it?
