Aston Villa’s 25-man squad has been submitted to the Premier League - with no major surprises.

The Villa had to notify the Premier League of their squad for the season, similar to what they did for the Europa Conference League. All players they wished to be a part of the squad would be included, and those not included will now be unable to play for the club in the league until January.
A decision that bosses have made is to include Leander Dendoncker, despite transfer speculation about him potentially leaving for Turkish giants Fenerbahce. Dendoncker hasn't played a league match this season and has been limited to just 21-minutes of game time but has made the cut.
Out-of-favour defender Kourtney Hause however is missing from the squad, and will now be limited to under-21’s football unless he can secure a transfer away from Villa Park. The 28-year-old has not played a game for Villa since January 2022 and spent a bit of last season on loan at Watford.
Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho is another that isn't included on the list but that makes sense given he joined Qatari outfit Al-Duhail earlier this month. Lamare Bogarde is included on the list as an under-21's player but he's with Joey Barton at Bristol Rovers for the year.
