Express & Star are reporting that Bruce has confirmed our interest in Lansbury, so I figured a speculation thread is in order.

January transfer window: Steve Bruce confirms Aston Villa approach for Henri Lansbury

Steve Bruce has confirmed Villa have made an approach for Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury.

The 25-year-old is one of several potential targets as the Villa boss looks to strengthen his midfield during the January transfer window.

Villa are thought to have made an offer of around £3million earlier this week and Bruce confirmed the club were now awaiting a response.

“We have made an enquiry for Lansbury,” he said. “That is all we have done. That is far as it has gone so far.

“There are a few we are looking at. Nothing more than that.”

The manager laughed off reports of Villa making a bid for Brighton midfielder Dale Stephens.

Nice. I love how assured we are in the transfer market under Dr. X. We don't mess about and address our weaknesses stat (though RDM did make a huge oversight on our midfield in the summer).

Can't see Forest playing ball at £3 million.

If Watford are in for him too, he'll end up there. Realistically, Derby may look a better bet for promotion if he's happy to stay in the Championship. 

Don't see this one coming off.  And from what I've heard about him, not sure I'd be too devastated either.

I can. His contract is out in the summer so they are lucky to get £3m when he could leave for nothing. 

Welcome aboard Henry, and take note how your name should be spelled.

I'm all for signing him. He was great when I signed him on Football Manager and I love when we sign my favourite FM players.
