Why Aston Villa Should Do Everything To Sign This Premier League Veteran

Aston Villa have seemingly butchered their chances of getting back to the top tier of English football after a series of miserable outings this calendar year. The 2015-16 Premier League campaign was a complete disaster for the Villans but what is much more saddening is the lack of commitment they have put on display this time around as well to resurrect their stature in the game of football. Steve Bruce is finding the hot-seat pretty hard to endure owing to his abject and unconvincing tactical setups despite having ample amount of resources at his disposal.

Aston Villa need to do a lot of homework and behind-the-scene chores before the next season kicks off and the summer transfer window shall enable them to amend their loopholes by making the requisite ramifications. Their midfield might boast of a plethora of stars but there appears to be a tinge of something still missing. Villa Park is screaming at the top of its lungs for a veteran leader who could show them the right direction and thus, a shrewd signing would be of paramount importance in the summer.

So, in a scenario like this, Aston Villa must search the Premier League outfits to dish out a deal and apparently, Stoke City’s Stephan Ireland is more than capable to fit their bill. The former Republic of Ireland international is yet to feature this season owing to a training ground mishap which saw him breaking his leg, as a result of which he has fallen behind in the pecking order of Mark Hughes’ outfit.

What puts the ball in the court of Aston Villa is the fact that his contract expires in the summer and having failed to make a thumping impression this season, he could be lured away from the bet365 Stadium to mould Aston Villa into a formidable side.

Despite his recent catastrophes, it wouldn’t be biased to underline that he is still a very fine servant. Ireland has plied his trade for the Villans before, with a touch of class and lots of creativity in the middle of the player and also knows how to knit the troops as a unit.

Moreover, the truckloads of experience he has accumulated under his belt should come handy and let’s not forget that he would be hungry to prove a point as well. Aston Villa have been splashing cash left right and centre and thus, if they manage to strike a deal for the 30-year-old, they could very well get the leader on the pitch that they are looking for quite some time now.
