Aston Villa set to sign Eric Montes

  Aston Villa set to sign Eric Montes Aston Villa are set to sign defender Eric Montes from Barcelona on a free transfer in the upcoming days. The 19-year-old’s current deal with Barca expires at the end of June and he will be leaving the club and it looks like Villa Park will be his next destination. Montes, who currently plays for Barcelona U19s, will join up with the club’s development squad, an area of the club which is set to go though an overhaul as Villa look to get back to a position where they are bringing players through into the first team on a more regular basis. The Spaniard is a centre-half by trade but he can also play at right-back or as a holding midfield player and he should be confirmed as a Villa player in the near future.

Aston Villa are one of the clubs interested in signing Dutch striker Tom Boere from FC Oss, according to a report in the Birmingham Mail.

The 24-year-old was in prolific goalscoring form in the Dutch second tier last season scoring 33 goals in 38 games and that record has apparently got the attention of a few clubs around Europe, including Villa.

FC Twente and Anderlecht are also interested in the forward and plenty of reports in Holland seem to think a switch to Twente is on the cards as the player would like to remain in him homeland.

Boere only signed for Oss last summer but as he only put pen to paper on a two-year contract, he’s already set to enter the final year of his deal and as such, his club might be forced to see him this summer rather than lose him for nothing in 12 months time.

Aston Villa still chasing Burnley's George Boyd .
Aston Villa are considering a second approach for Burnley winger George Boyd as he is set to leave Turf Moor this summer, according to a report in the Birmingham Mail. The 31-year-old’s contract at Burnley expires this summer and he has rejected the offer of a new one-year-deal from the Premier League side. Boyd is hoping for a club to offer him a three-year-deal, but Aston Villa are weary of offering him a lengthy deal at this stage in his career. Steve Bruce tried to sign Boyd in January but the wideman decided to see out the remainder of the season at Burnley. Villa will have a battle on their hands as they try once again to buy Boyd’s signatures, with Derby County also being heavily linked with his services. Boyd made 39 appearances for Burnley last season, helping the club to retain their Premier League status.
