Ahead of a major rebuild at Aston Villa, the fallen Midlands giants have been linked with a move for Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans.
Robert Di Matteo takes over a club in crisis and his reputation as a Champions League winner does little to change the fact the Italian must ring the changes at a side that so meekly succumbed to the drop last year.
