‘He’s the sort of player they need’ – PL midfielder and Aston Villa: Time to revive interest? Opinion



Aston Villa under Dean Smith have finally found top gear and a six match winning run has thrust them into play-off contention, now two points clear of seventh placed Middlesbrough with six matches remaining this season.

Smith will hope that as one of the form sides heading into the play-offs, the Villans have a real chance of a return to the Premier League and will therefore be looking to strengthen his side in the summer.

An option for Smith, is to revisit the potential signing of defensive midfielder Issac Hayden from Newcastle, who Villa were keen on in January and who has indicated he wants away from the Toon in the summer, as reported in the Birmingham Mail.

So should Villa revive interest in Hayden in the summer?

We discuss……..

Gary Hutchinson

“Not for me, no.

“I think they’ll be top flight and if they are, they need to aim higher.

“I’m not entirely convinced missing out on a player is reason to go back at a later date.

“It’s a buyers market, time to move on.”

Jacob Potter

“He’s the sort of player they need.

“Hayden has experience in the Premier League, which could come in handy for Dean Smith, as his side challenge for a return to the top-flight.

“He strikes me as a long-term replacement for Glenn Whelan and would be a good signing, even if Villa are to win promotion this season.”

George Harbey

“I think I can see this move happening as it’s definitely an area that needs strengthening.

“The likes of Mile Jedinak and Glenn Whelan are getting on a bit now and will need replacing over the next couple of years.

“Hayden has won promotion from this level before with Newcastle and has turned into a very good player in the Premier League, and it would be a massive coup if Villa were to land his signature.”
