But we are still far from the end of the summer transfer window, and there will be twists and turns aplenty between now and next season.

Villa could yet lose players, while Gerrard will also be looking to add more players to ensure he has what he needs for the new season.

The Lions will have been disappointed with their 14th place finish last season, and mediocrity will not do given the club’s investment on this squad.

As the efforts to improve the current group continue, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Villa Park.

Villa have been distanced from a move for Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

It was thought the midfielder would be available for around £10million this summer, and Villa were being linked with a move for him.

But fresh reports on Monday claimed he would not be sold after all, and BBC Sport’s Phil McNulty has followed that up by ruling out a move from Villa this summer.

The Midlands club are said to be focused on other deals.

Exit nears

Trezeguet appears to be moving ever-closer to a departure.

The midfielder is said to be closing in on a deal to leave the Midlands on a permanent basis after spending this season out on loan.

According to Yagiz Sabuncuoglu via Inside Futbol, Trabzonspor will meet with Trezeguet’s agent on Tuesday to discuss terms.

Villa are set to be open to a deal, with a fee of around £3m expected.

It seems the Lions have seen the last of Trezeguet.
