Bristol City defender Joe Bryan has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this summer, and it seems he could seal a move before Thursday’s deadline.
The highly rated defender could become cash strapped Aston Villa’s second signing of the summer following their capture of Andre Moreira on loan from Atletico Madrid.
Villa’s precarious financial concerns have prevented them from signing players on permanent deals, but Steve Bruce is looking to add a few bodies in the remaining few days.
Bryan is arguably one of the best defenders in the Championship – he is equally good going forward, while very solid at the back.
He could prove to be a terrific signing for Villa, and they must do everything to get him, even if they have to pay a slightly higher transfer fee.
