Two loan signings Aston Villa must complete before the transfer deadline
Two wins and a draw in the opening three games in the Championship, as well as qualification to the second round of Football League Cup, augurs well for Aston Villa, whose manager Steve Bruce did all the wheeling and dealing in the summer transfer window.
While the summer transfer window slammed shut on August 9, Bruce still has the loan market open to bolster his squad for the season. That being said, here are two loan signings Aston Villa must look to complete.
Josh Onomah (Tottenham Hotspur)
One player Aston Villa must seriously look to sign is Tottenham Hotspur’s Josh Onomah.
Villa had Onomah on loan from Tottenham last season and he made 37 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals. The 21-year-old got plenty of game time at Villa last season, but he never really did enough to establish himself as a permanent starter.
Onomah would be a great signing for Villa, particularly as he now knows everything about the club. The Midlands club would benefit by adding a top-class youngster to the squad this season.
Isaac Hayden (Newcastle United)
According to the Daily Mirror, Isaac Hayden wants to leave Newcastle United because of personal reasons and has handed in a transfer request.
Villa must go all out to sign Hayden, who would make them a force to reckon with. He could add steel and dynamism to their midfield ranks and would be an excellent signing for the Villans.
Aston Villa need players, and players of quality. Hayden is still young and has experience that will be supremely beneficial to Steve Bruce’s men. The 23-year-old brings energy and tenacity in the middle of the park, and he will be a big coup for Bruce.
