Aston Villa edge close on signing Clermont Foot Sylla

Aston Villa edge close on signing Clermont Foot Sylla

Daily Mail informs Aston Villa are set to complete the move for Clermont Foot defensive midfielder Yacouba Sylla.

Should the deal go through this will be the first and the only signing of the January transfer window for struggling Aston Villa. The Villans are currently finding themselves at the bottom of the Premier league table after suffering four back-to-back home defeats. They have also been humiliatingly eliminated by the minnows from two cup competitions. That is why Paul Lambert desperately needed boosting his squad with the new signings in January.

But that did not happen. The transfer of young defensive midfielder can be hardly seen as an attempt of strengthening the defensive line. Aston Villa can be considered the prime contenders to face the agony of relegation this season.
