Similarly to Newcastle, Aston Villa could not have predicted such a strong result for the 2021/22 season back in September. Steven Gerrard is set to lead his team to a tenth place finish and will hope to continue developing his squad ahead of next season.

Aston Villa have had a stunning start to the 2022/23 summer transfer window.

Four permanent signings have already been announced in the form of Philippe Coutinho, Diego Carlos, Boubacar Kamara and Robin Olsen and the incomings aren’t expected to stop there.

Steven Gerrard is still thought to be after a left-sided defender, a battling midfielder and a forward - depending on where the future of Cameron Archer lies.

We are of course now well into transfer season, or silly season as it’s known to many and rumours are swirling.

Due to the overhaul expected at Villa Park and the money available, the claret and blue, like Premier League rivals Newcastle United, appear to be being linked with every man and their dog.

And whilst a lot are nonsense, some do have a bit of credibility behind them.

BirminghamWorld have looked through all of the latest rumours and judged which ones actually have some legs to them and those that don’t.

Each player has been ranked and rated based on how likely they are to sign for the club, from very unlikely, to possible.
