A look at the latest Aston Villa news and transfer rumours as Unai Emery takes over at Villa Park.

A new era has begun at Aston Villa, with Unai Emery taking over from Steven Gerrard.

Villa have endured a disappointing start to the season, and Gerrard paid the price. Since then, the Lions have picked up a big win in response, while the club have also gone out and spent big to land a new boss. The Midlands club paid more than £5million to get Unai Emery from Villarreal, and they are also paying the serial Europa League winner a hefty salary in a bid to get the club moving in the right direction.

A tough clash with Newcastle United awaits Villa next, but in the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Villa Park.

Ings prediction

Villa star Danny Ings is said to be a hot property ahead of the January transfer window.

“It’ll depend on who is the manager of Aston Villa at the time,” Dean Jones told GiveMeSport. “But, if Steven Gerrard was still there, I think Danny Ings would probably be one of the most sought-after players in the January transfer market. He’s a player that clearly isn’t fulfilling his potential and he must be frustrated.

“As another team who is looking for a goal boost, he is the sort of player that you’d feel could turn around your season, so it will be really interesting to keep an eye on his situation.”

Kamara boost

Villa star Boubacar Kamara could yet be fit in time for the World Cup.

The defensive midfielder is hoping to make the France side for the winter tournament, but he is not only hampered by a lack of play time leading up to selection, but he may not even be fit enough in time.

But according to the Express and Star, Kamara could yet return having missed weeks of action following his arrival at Villa over the summer.
