Aston Villa are now fully in the swing of pre-season as the club attempt to haul their way back into the Premier League next season.
In their mission to do so they have made moves in the transfer market.
The club have so far signed Tommy Elphick from Bournemouth, Pierluigi Gollini from Verona and Aaron Tshibola from Reading as Roberto Di Matteo looks to rebuild the Aston Villa team for a promotion challenge.

Yesterday the Aston Villa official Twitter account was very keen to show off their new signings. All three posed for a picture in training and looked happy to be at their new club:

Villa fans are quickly trying to put last season’s disastrous campaign behind them and are already excited for what they feel could be a successful campaign in the Championship under their new owner and manager.

Of course fans will also be hoping that these three players are not the only new arrivals at Villa Park this summer.
But there seems to be a plan being put in place and hopefully Villa can get back on form in 2016-17.
