James Chester could be the subject of bids of £8m from a number of Premier League clubs, according to Daily Telegraph journalist Matt Law.

The Welshman was an integral part of our backline last season that had the third-best defence in the Championship, but the club’s financial troubles could prompt the sale of one of the squad’s most valuable assets.

Many have tipped our no.5 to be the club’s captain next season, replacing John Terry, but the future of senior players at the club can no longer be guaranteed.

While it has been confirmed that we have seen off the prospect of administration, there is still a cash flow problem on top of the reported £40m shortfall due to the Financial Fair Play.

Along with Jack Grealish, Chester is a player who commands interest from the top flight, and offers from the Premier League for the 29-year-old are likely to be received in the coming weeks.

  • one player AV must not sell and jack Grealish,if ever AV were to mount a revived
    rebuilding via academy etc.Even Bruce is expendable if a more progressive coach can be
    found. But the damage done by XIA and Bruce means everyone will avoid the stigma surrounding
    AVFC . Like a Leprosy in Biblical times, the club needs a messiah and quick .Ave Ave ,Ave Maria
    Save our Villa is how the hymn goes by Holt Enders in heaven. I’m praying too.

  • He may well want to play in the PL again himself, so wouldn’t be surprised to see him go. However looking at what Bristol City were trying to get for Flint last summer I’d want more than £8m

  • It’s dire at the moment,the vibes coming from the Club are dreadful.Promotion next season appears unlikely,beware,a repeat of Sunderland’s fate is a real possibility unless the Club can hold onto their assets.The Championship is such a competitive league,anything is possible.
