How many players will Villa sign?
Poll Date: 06 Jun 2013
Suggested By: JP Fear

More with loads leaving as well 52%

4-5 28%

3-4 17%

1-2 3%

More than 5? Not sure myself, not unless they are able to offload all the players that Lambert has decided he wants gone. On their wages, that might be easier said than done.

So far outward we`ve had:

Richard Dunne (released)
Andy Marshall (released)
Eric Lichaj (released)
Jean Makoun (not sure yet, has he been released or sold?!)

We need two more defenders due to the above, one being linked as you know is the Denmark International Okore.

The question marks are over the likes of Stephen Ireland, Darren Bent and Shay Given. All, it is clear, are not part of Lamberts plans but will anyone bid what Villa would want? Especially for Bent. And why would any of those players leave unless they can match the wages they are on?

There are then also the fringe players like Holman, Bannan and even last summers buy El Ahmadi.

Time will tell. Should, for once, be a really interesting summer as Lambert looks to really put his mark on the squad and hopefully bring in the right players to stave off a fourth season of relegation battles.
