Tim Sherwood Press Conference 12/02/2014

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has been seen scouting again this evening.

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has once again been pictured watching Swindon Town in action, with speculation linking him with a move for Massimo Luongo.

Sherwood arrived at Villa in February, replacing Paul Lambert as Villa were trapped in a relegation zone - and so far, the former Tottenham boss has been a breath of fresh air.

Not only has Sherwood guided Villa four points clear of the relegation zone with just two games to play, but he also has the club in the FA Cup final against Arsenal later this month.

Sherwood can now begin to plan for next season, and will be looking to add some more talent to his squad in order to prevent another similar relegation battle next term.

The Daily Mail recently suggested that Sherwood was hoping to sign Swindon Town playmaker Massimo Luongo, having worked with the 22-year-old Australian international at Tottenham.

A month ago, we reported that Sherwood had been spotted scouting the midfielder - and now, he's again been seen watching Swindon Town, taking in tonight's play-off game against Sheffield United, which ended in a remarkable 5-5 draw, sending Swindon through 7-6 on aggregate.

Given the recent rumours, it's almost certain that Sherwood was making another - possibly final - check on Luongo ahead of the summer transfer window, with the diminutive playmaker capable of adding creativity and goals to a Villa side who had struggled to find the net before Sherwood's arrival.
