Tyrone Mings due to be the first through the door on loan from Bournemouth. They are also after a holding midfielder and keen on either Watford’s Nathaniel Chalobah or Newcastle’s Isaac Hayden.
The arrival at Newcastle of Andreas Samaris from Benfica would free up Hayden to leave. Villa are also want Luton’s impressive and versatile full back James Justin.
Stoke like Justin too and are now managed by his former Luton boss Nathan Jones which could give the Potters an advantage.
I think it's one we'll just have to put a pin in. IF Villa are able to get to the table then, of course, I hope we can react and are prepared to do so, but I get the impression that Luton simply aren't interested this window in selling key players, especially after they've just lost their manager (and got a little windfall from that).
