Former Aston Villa Academy graduate Gary Cahill has long been linked with a return to Villa Park – especially when his future at Chelsea was known to be coming to an end – and those rumours just won’t go away.

In January it was all about a potential loan move but that never came off, and some like the Sun remain adamant that we will be trying to reunite Cahill with both the club and John Terry this summer, but I just can’t see it myself given everything head coach Dean Smith has said about transfer, along with Christian Purslow.

The 33-year-old former England man would certainly provide experience to what we expect to be a younger crop of players, but I really can’t see it. Especially as the Sun then go on to link another former Chelsea and Brentford player as another presumed target for us – 26-year-old, now free agent, Josh McEachran.

As for Cahill, plenty see sense in a short deal if the number stack up though, although others certainly didn’t.
