Aston Villa transfers ‘not far away’ reveals Steven Gerrard following disappointing season

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard has revealed that, even before the transfer window officially opens, ‘there are a few pieces [of business] not too far away’ for his side.

The Villans have endured a tough season to date, switching managers midway through the campaign and seeing the players brought in to replace Jack Grealish struggle to perform.

As a result, they head into their final two games of the season sitting in 14th place in the Premier League, and while they could finish as high as 9th with a very favourable final set of results, it is a disappointment for a side who had ambitions to challenge for European football this campaign.

This has led Steven Gerrard to turn his attentions to summer business, promising fans of the midlands club that ‘next season we will be more competitive.’

In addition, he revealed that his side will be looking to make use of the free agent market before the window opens.

‘The window hasn’t opened yet but there are a few pieces not too far away. There is a free market as well which can be a bit different. You can bring them in a bit quicker’, he claimed.

Tarkowski on the radar?

One of those on Villa’s radar is supposedly Burnley star James Tarkowski.

Having racked up 32 appearances this season, the centre-back has continued to be one of the Clarets’ most important players and, now 29, will almost certainly be looking to make a step up as he comes into his prime.

Tarkowski would certainly add plenty of experience to the Villans’ backline should he arrive at Villa Park this summer.
