Remi Garde eyes Aston Villa signings in January transfer window

RĂ©mi Garde

The Villa boss admits they will probably look to add new faces in January.

Aston Villa boss Remi Garde has admitted they will 'probably' look to sign players in January, reports talkSPORT.

Villa are currently rooted to the foot of the Premier League table, having failed to win since the opening day of the season.

Their current squad has been heavily criticised from all angles, with many saying that they don’t have the required quality to avoid relegation this season.

They may have to look to add in January to try and escape their current plight, and Garde admits that new faces are likely.

“Yes probably we will,” he responded when asked if additions will be explored, according to talkSPORT.

“I will see at the time what is possible to do. For now we have four games to play before the opening of this transfer window. My responsibility is to do as well as possible with the player I’ve got with me currently.”

If there is one area of the Villa team that is in desperate need of strengthening, it is the centre forward position.

They previously had Christian Benteke to score the goals for the side, but with him now having left, the strikers at the club have failed to take up that burden.

A striker is sure to be top of the list as a result, but getting one for a fair price is sure to prove a difficult task, with the January transfer window notoriously difficult to find value for money in.

Perhaps, then, Garde should look to improve what he has rather than hoping he can add extra in January.
