Tony Xia has posted a cryptic message on Twitter. Aston Villa fans speculate that a new signing could be on the way.
Aston Villa have moved to fourth in the Championship table after beating Nottingham Forest in the Championship clash on Saturday.
Steve Bruce’s side are doing exceedingly well and are one of the genuine contenders for promotion to the Premier League.
The Villa manager is in desperate need to make a few signings in January to add depth and quality to the side so that Villa can maintain the momentum till the end of the season.
However, with financial restrictions imposed on them, Bruce is left frustrated as Villa are yet to make a new signing in January.
When a Villa supporter tweeted Dr Tony Xia to give a mathematical update on how the transfers are progressing at the club, the club owner replied in a cryptic manner.
Villa fans were quick to speculate whether Dr. Xia was referring to the arrival of a new signing, with many decoding that the message could be about Leonando Ulloa or Axel Tuanzebe.
The 31-year-old Leicester forward has been recently linked with a move to Aston Villa, and probably Xia hinted that on Twitter. There are suggestions that it could be about Tuanzebe. Here are some of the fan's reaction:
Well ATM - M is AT ( Axel Tuanzebe) so that's that one...— ell.i.am (@Liamornot) January 14, 2018
Axel Tuanzebe. ATM - M is AT!— Stephen Mills (@steviem11_mills) January 14, 2018
No clue bout rest of it but (Atm-M) = AT (Axel Tuanzebe it however it’s spelt) and looks to be done soon— Tom Cowley (@TomC2312_AVFC) January 14, 2018
The first thing I noticed was the Leo birth sign so I’m going for Ulloa #avfc— Max Ellis (@MaxAVFC15) January 14, 2018
