3 free transfers Aston Villa could complete in the summer including this Manchester United star

Three Players Aston Villa Could Sign In The Summer For Free

Steve Bruce and Aston Villa made it into the automatic promotion places last weekend and it is unlikely that they will leave those places. They have a team filled with class and experience, and if and when they do make it to the Premier League they have an owner who has been known to open the chequebook when he needs to.

However, sometimes the best value in the market can be found in picking up players who have reached the end of their contracts and are available on a free transfer. If clubs like Juventus can do it, why can’t Aston Villa? So if Steve Bruce does look down that avenue here are a few of his options.

Sung-Yueng Ki

The South Korean midfielder had some time out of the team this season, and although he is back in and performing well at Swansea he is still out of contract at the end of the season.

Depending on if Swansea manage to survive he may find himself surplus to requirements come the end of the season. If that is the case then Aston Villa would be the perfect destination for a classy midfielder with defensive steel who is used to playing backs-against-the-wall football in the Premier League.

Stephen Ward

The Irish international was having an excellent season until recently and was a top player to put into your fantasy team. However, an injury has meant he has gone backwards in the pecking order and he is also 32.

With a new generation coming through at Burnley it may be time for him to move on. The Aston Villa team makes perfect sense for him, they have a veteran defence that he could add quality and experience too, especially if John Terry doesn’t want another crack at the Premier League.

Marouane Fellaini

Although there was talk earlier in the season that Fellaini has been offered a new deal, as things stand he has not signed on the dotted line, and the lack of playing time at Old Trafford must be a concern for the 30-year-old.

With this in mind, it would make sense for the big Belgian would move on, and he could do a lot worse than play for a club of Aston Villa’s standing. The style of Steve Bruce would suit him, and he could do some real damage from the delivery of their talented wide players. Perhaps worth a punt, especially if Villa get promoted?
