I would welcome him back -  Just won the league with inter he is still a quality player that can cover variety of positions.

Exactly. We lose Neil Taylor and Elmohamady and replace them with a bloke that helped Inter Milan win Serie A last season.

For now it’s better than spunking £20m for Rico Henry to sit on the bench.

Thanks mate, I still can't find anything, all I see is sky reporting on what's been posted by the likes of football insider..

If his fitness is at the required level then this could be a masterstroke. Although it doesn't fit the Villa way, it's an intriguing proposition and we did sign Reyna so maybe they are open to deals for the elderly.

Well I spent the best part of 3 pages of the summer transfer gossip page banging on about bringing in an experienced left back as a squad option so I'm obviously very much loving the sound of this deal. Think it's exactly what we need and exactly the kind of signing that makes sense for where we are currently as a side.

So we're basically just signing Elmo 2.0 

Comparing Ashley young to Elmo, is borderline disrespectful to be honest. lol

Villa was/is the high point of Elmos career.

Villa was the mid level/point of Youngs career.

Also totally different players.

Can't see this happening doesn't fit our young and hungry player role. Paper talk.

Leaving aside the fact basically every successful side ever has had *some* experience in the squad, and as we’re ran by proper people I’m sure they understand that, which “young and hungry” left back is going to come here and sit on the bench behind Matt Targett? Currently, at least?

Nothing is more depressing than seeing a player who is younger than me being described as elderly 😂. Maybe I need to sack off my Sunday League now and take up walking footie instead.

Would be a welcome veteran addition to a stable and tight knit dressing room.  Gives coverage all over the pitch, and is an infinitely better option than Neil Taylor and Elmo at this stage in their careers.

just won Serie A with inter for Christ’s sake, and it’s not like he’s coming here to start.  Good depth.

Well happy with this  

How can you not be?

Look at what he's achieved, having that around can only be a good thing. He's also a massive upgrade and is returning to us. 

Brilliant.
