The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Rangers midfielder revealed on Sky Sports earlier today that he has been approached by Villa manager Tim Sherwood, and that he has accepted the invitation.
Former Sky Sports presenter Keys believes that Wilkins’ move to Villa will prove to be a success for the Premier League club.
Delighted for Ray Wilkins. He knows his way around big clubs. Good call by Tim Sherwood.— Richard Keys (@richardajkeys) June 25, 2015
Wilkins is a well-respected figure in the footballing community, and he is certainly going to be a good ‘signing’ for Villa.
The former 58-year-old midfielder has been in charge of Queens Park Rangers and Fulham, and has also worked as a caretaker-manager at Chelsea in his career.
Villa boss Sherwood is an ambitious young manager, and working with Wilkins is only going to make him better.
The Villans narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2014-15 campaign, and next season they will be aiming higher.
