According to the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa will cancel the contract of striker Nicklas Helenius this summer after an ineffectual stint with the club.
Reinforcements are needed but players will no doubt be leaving too, with Danish forward Helenius seemingly leading the way out of Villa Park.
Helenius, 24, joined Villa from Danish side AaB in 2013, and having hit 36 goals in 98 games for the club, there was certainly a sense of optimism that he could be one for the future.
Yet after just one goal in six games last season, Helenius was farmed out on loan before the start of the season, re-joining former club AaB for the season.
The 6ft 5in striker has scored ten goals in 38 games this season but that doesn't appear to be enough to keep him at Villa Park - and in fact, the Birmingham Mail report that Helenius is currently in discussions with Villa over terminating his contract.
A permanent move back to Denmark is likely for Helenius, who is another failed signing from the summer of 2013, following the likes of Aleksandar Tonev, Yacouba Sylla and Antonio Luna in having no future under Sherwood, with Helenius seemingly poised to become a free agent despite having a year left on his contract with the club.
