Opinion: 3 reasons why Aston Villa need to tie up a deal for this midfielder ASAP

Instant improvement

Bruce has made it no secret that he wants a new central midfielder and Henri Lansbury walks into this Aston Villa team at the moment.

The 26-year-old is a box-to-box midfielder who can add attacking threat in the middle of the park with Mile Jedinak sitting behind to cover him.

Lansbury is arguably Nottingham Forest’s best player and he would improve this Aston Villa midfield immediately.
