Aston Villa owner Tony Xia has announced his personal ambitions for the January transfer window, as he looks to get his side back into the Premier League.
Due to financial fair play regulations, Aston Villa aren’t in a position to spend big, so fans may have to expect a loan, or low budget signing, if any.
However, speaking to The Birmingham Mail, Xia has stated that fans “can expect a signing or two”.
But the Chinese businessman has expressed that stability is the key during the transfer window: “I did learn dreams only come true when you practically work hard on it and I do think we may need one or two strengths at the most, no more instability.”
Steve Bruce is desperate for a striker to compete in the team, as Jonathan Kodjia is to miss more time due to injury.
If it is Xia’s “dream” to get Villa back in the Premier League, then he may have to work hard to bring in somebody who is going to find the net in Kodjia’s absence.
Villa currently sit fifth in the table, 17 points off local rivals Wolves who sit in the top spot.
In other Aston Villa transfer news, Villa have shown an interest in this 28-year-old Championship midfielder forsaken by Gary Monk at Leeds.
