With the heavy defeat to Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, Aston Villa fans can be forgiven for staying away from the back pages and social media as the all too predictable meltdown once again began in some corners of the fanbase.

We all know we are a work in progress, we all know in reality we are only six months in at best given all the changes over the summer, and we all know it’s not FIFA – bottom line is we are largely picking up points against sides we should and anyone judging our season by results against top six sides should give their heads a wobble.

With that said, I doubt anyone at the club is under the illusion that we don’t need to strengthen further when the January transfer window opens and although the most obvious position to pick out would be our striking options.

Therefore, reports on Sunday from the Telegraph linking us with a move for Chelsea winger Pedro do seem a little left field, but naturally lean on the fact he’s out of contract next summer so would be available at a far reduced price – allied to his game time this year which stands at five starts and three substitute appearances.

The 32-year-old would not tick our more natural transfer process under Suso and head coach Dean Smith, but as short term gap given his experience, I can certainly understand those fans who feel his attacking versatility could be a solid option for us.

For the right fee, a 12/18 month contract knowing what he can help pass on to others as well definitely wouldn’t make him a bad capture (as long as wages were sensible) but he certainly shouldn’t be the only addition in the New Year.
