Villa currently sit bottom of the Premier League table with just 13 points, leaving them ten points adrift of safety having won only two games this term.
Fans had hoped to see new signings brought in to aid the club's fight against relegation, but they were left disappointed and frustrated as the deadline passed without any new faces arriving at Villa Park.
Now, The Telegraph report that manager Remi Garde - who was appointed just three months ago - is considering his future at the club, having been told he would have cash to spend when he took the job.
Garde is allegedly ready to review his position after a host of failed transfers, including for Croatian goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic, whose work permit application was rejected.
It's also stated that Villa had an interest in signing Arsenal right back Mathieu Debuchy before he joined Bordeaux on loan, whilst they also missed out on Newcastle's deadline day loan signing Seydou Doumbia, despite offering a greater loan fee to parent club Roma.
Finally, it's suggested that Garde wanted to sign playmaker Wahbi Khazri from Bordeaux, but Villa weren't willing to pay £8m to land the Tunisian international - and he ended up joining relegation rivals Sunderland instead.
It's understandable for Garde to be frustrated having seen so many targets slip through the net, and having not been backed in the transfer market, it really wouldn't be much of a surprise to see him resign from his role before the end of the season.
