Aston Villa window 'the best in Premier League' after latest signings completed - pundit
Paul Robinson has claimed that Aston Villa have had “the best window of everyone” following the signings of Danny Ings and Leon Bailey.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England keeper expressed how impressed he had been with Villa’s shrewd transfer business this summer.
Villa sold Jack Grealish to Manchester City for a British-record fee but have shown no signs of slowing down their recruitment drive this summer.
Robinson hailed Villa for their ‘intelligent’ business, stating that their window added the ability to play with a back three as well as a four.

He told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs: “I think Villa have recruited really well this summer.
“They’ve probably had the best window of everyone.
“The signing of Ings, it came out of the blue and no one saw it coming. I think it’s an intelligent signing if you look at Ollie Watkins – if you put him and Ings together, that is a really good strike force.
“They’ve brought in Ashley Young down the left and Tuanzebe which will allow them to play with a back three as well as a back four.
“There are so many fixtures and we know that you need a squad of players rather than just an eleven.
“However you look at it and whatever formation they play – they will have a strong squad to pick from.”
