This is the dream midfield duo for Aston Villa next season

CM: Mile Jedinak

32-year-old Mile Jedinak was Villa’s star performer last season following his move from Crystal Palace, and the experienced Australian is key to Villa’s promotion hopes next season.

It was a shock to see Palace allow the player to leave last summer, having been such an important cog in the Eagles’ Premier League side, but their loss was certainly Villa’s gain.

Jedinak has the unrivalled ability to control games from the middle, and his composure on the ball is vital in the Villains’ play.

Breaking up opposition attacks is central to Jedinak’s play, and the player acts as a springboard to Villa’s own forays forward.

Jedinak has at least another year at the top of the Championship ahead of him, and will be one of the first names on the team-sheet at Villa Park next season.
