Aston Villa boss Roberto Di Matteo is looking to have a clear out ahead of the new season, with 5 players expected to leave the club, according to the Express and Star.
The five players expected to leave the club are Brad Guzan, Micah Richards, Joleon Lescott, Leandro Bacuna and Gabby Agbonlahor.
Goalkeeper Brad Guzan, who has made over 150 appearances for the Villains, is reported to be interesting Middlesbrough but the newly promoted side have recently signed former Barcelona ‘keeper Victor Valdes.
Captain Micah Richards is said to have a £5 million release clause which may interest Premier League sides such as Sunderland.
While it has been suggested that Joleon Lescott could be off to the MLS or China, Dutch international Leandro Bacuna is expected to return to his homeland.
However, Agbonlahor may be a little bit more tricky to shift as he still has two years left on his contract and his current wage is reported to be around £50,000 per week.
With these high-profile players expected to leave, the side will be almost unrecognisable but Villa fans will be hoping to see high-quality reinforcements.
