There has been a lot of talk about players moving to Aston Villa, some names include Hoolahan, Lescott, Defour and Wells. But with one or two players joining Aston Villa this season, could we see a player or two leaving the club in January? Some clubs tend to have a sell-then-buy policy. However I’m sure Villa have a buy-first-sell-second policy this January transfer window.
Brad Guzan, Jed Steer and Ben Siegrist will definitely stay until the summer! Guzan is number 1 and Steer is number 2. Meanwhile Siegrist is out on loan at Burton. Shay Given was linked with a move to Swansea but with his current loan deal at Middlesbrough expiring in February, he won’t be sold this month either.
Lambert will not sell a single defender! Aston Villa have had numerous defensive injuries so far this season so every player will be needed. Bennett and Herd are close to returning from injury and Okore will be back by March. The only exception is Allan Hutton. Still out of favour and will be looking for a move. He plays regularly for Scotland so hopefully he can find a club.
With a few midfielders linked to join Aston Villa I reckon we could see a midfielder leave Aston Villa. As of right now, Marc Albrighton has played the least amount of football in midfield. However, with his recent form he’ll be given a chance and will probably not be sold. However, last season signing Sylla could possibly be sold. If Aston Villa received a bid for the Malian midfielder, I’m pretty confident Lambert would accept it. Sylla did well last season, but this season he has been poor.
Jordan Bowery, that’s all I really got to say. All other strikers have scored a goal except for Jordan Bowery. He has had two seasons at the club and has been restricted with first team appearances but still had a few playing time. Aston Villa have a lot of strikers and the Bowery experiment has failed. He is the same age as Benteke but he just isn’t anywhere near that level. Should an offer come in, I’m sure he’ll be off.
