This Championship star is the perfect John Terry replacement at Aston Villa



Chris Mepham has performed well for Brentford in the centre-back position this season.

The 20-year-old has had a breakthrough season as Dean Smith has trusted him in the heart of defence for the Bees.

He has played 17 games for Brentford this season and even managed to bag himself a goal with an equaliser against Sheffield United.

His performances for Brentford saw him rewarded with a call-up to the Welsh national team where he made his debut in a 6-0 win against China in the 2018 China Cup.

Here at FLW, we value him at £10 million as can be seen in the graphic above.

That has the potential to be a bargain based on how he could develop because he is only 20-years-old.

Aston Villa are a club in need of a young centre-back because they have an ageing back line.

John Terry is 37-years-old and James Chester is 29-years-old, and they are the first-choice pairing.

Terry’s future at the club is uncertain because he may not stay at the club beyond this season even if they get promoted.

Therefore, this is the perfect opportunity for Steve Bruce to rejuvenate the back line.

Mepham has shown that he can be dependable even though he is young and the experience in that Villa team could certainly help him develop.
