Should Tim Sherwood reunite himself with Aussie star and former Spurs talent Massimo Luongo?

Tim Sherwood Press Conference 12/02/2014

The Swindon Town midfielder is currently hot property.

Tim Sherwood took over the vacant managerial role at Aston Villa last week, with the hope of turning around the fortunes of a team struggling to fight relegation and score goals this season.

Last season he was appointed in a similar saviour role for Tottenham Hotspur, after letting Andre Villas-Boas depart the post.

He did a fairly good job at Spurs and there were several reasons behind the change of fortune. He cut out some of the disruptive forces, got the best out of some of the recluses but also began to bring young players into the fold. His past is in youth football and he helped mould the likes of Nabil Bentaleb, Harry Kane and Ryan Mason.

Now he is at Villa some might be hoping he can do the same with a very talented Aston Villa youth system.

Also, he might just look to bring in some of the former talents he had at Spurs.

One player he might just consider signing is Swindon Town midfielder Massimo Luongo.

Luongo recently had an excellent competition in the AFC Asian Cup. He smashed home a strike from outside the box and had the rowdy home support up on their feet. He scored two goals at the competition and was later crowned the MVP of the entire competition.

The player himself admitted that his future probably lies away from Swindon in a recent interview with SBS's World Game. He also revealed that Tottenham can buy him back from The Robins, and that he would like to stay in England.

Sherwood has history with the talented Aussie.

The central-midfielder joined Tottenham in 2011 after a successful trial. Luongo played just one time for Tottenham, featuring in a League Cup defeat against Stoke City back in 2011. It was a tie he would want to forget - his missed penalty cost Spurs the game.

But he worked under Sherwood at Spurs. In January last year he sung the praises of Sherwood to SBS's The World Game, stating:

"As a coach, his sessions were simple and straightforward, it was a lot like under Harry Redknapp with lots of small sided games," said Luongo, who was made captain under Sherwood.

"But, in terms of managing the team, everybody just wanted to play for him. He has a way of motivating players and knows how to treat each individual to bring out the best in them...

"People always talk about what a great manager Harry is at motivating players and while that's definitely the case, in my experience, Tim is probably even better."

Flic Wiltshire reported earlier in the month that Wolves, Brentford and Sevilla were all interested in the player, who once captained the likes of Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason and Danny Rose in the Tottenham youth teams.

But with his links to Luongo and his current form, surely Aston Villa must have Australia's latest superstar on their radar.
