A big summer surely awaits for Aston Villa with the club hoping to be preparing for a stint back in the Premier League for the new season.

The Villans have been excellent in recent weeks and now have a top six spot in their sights, something we probably wouldn’t have seen coming earlier this year.

In the summer, then, Dean Smith will be looking to make changes and it remains to be seen exactly what is going to happen with Jonathan Kodjia.

The forward has seen playing time limited this season and when he has been on the pitch he has often been shunted out to the wing.

He’s a player of ability, but you get the feeling he could be one man to start the cost-cutting this window.

Villa need to shave the wage bill down and Kodjia will be on a fair bit and will bring in some decent cash – all the signs suggest an exit could be on the cards.

  • The has been suggestions that Kodjia is keen on moving on, although how reliable these stories are is always open to debate.

    With Richards and Lyden’s futures already known, the fate of Bunn, De Laet, Hutton, Elphick, Jedinak, Whelan and Adomah are likely to be the next tier of players under review.

    Once those on expiring deals are determined, there is then the question of where the likes of Nyland, Bree, Clark, Gardner, Bjarnasson, Hogan and McCormack fit in. Then we move on to the loan players…….

    Dean Smith has been left a bit of a dog’s dinner to sort out by his predecessor, eh?
