Aston Villa are just monitoring David Brooks at the moment with the Villans unlikely to make any transfer moves until the latter stages of this window, if they do at all.
Villa have had a good season so far and are certainly challenging for the European spots – though they are facing a bit of a fixture pile-up with their training ground still closed and their game this weekend against Everton now postponed.
Things are on pause at the moment, then, and it looks as though they’re not planning on making any transfer bids until late in the window too.
As per the Express and Star, Villa are monitoring the situation involving Brooks at Bournemouth but will not be lodging a firm bid for him, or anyone else, until towards the end of the January.
And that’s not even a certainty, either, so there’s a good chance we see no action at Villa Park transfer-wise this month.
Brooks is a good young player and will therefore command a fair old fee, which may well price teams out of a move in this particular window given the current climate.
Villa, of course, have a strong balance sheet but did spend again in the summer and may well decide, given the form they’re in anyway, that they don’t need to move for Brooks, or anyone else, in this window.
