    Villa are targeting ‘seven or eight’ players in the hope of bringing ‘three or four’ to the club in the transfer window, according to owner Dr Tony Xia – with Henri Lansbury set to be the first in the door…

Both Xia and chief executive Keith Wyness took to social media yesterday to allay any fears among supporters after a barren spell in terms of signings since the transfer window opened. Villa have been heavily linked with several players but have yet to complete a deal.

The most advanced is for Nottingham Forest’s Henri Lansbury, with a £3million bid last night reportedly accepted.
