Dean Smith’s January transfer plans are in full swing as he looks to propel Aston Villa to promotion from the Championship.
The manager has a lot of work to do to tighten up the defence and other areas and will be a busy man before the window slams shut.
Several of the Premier League’s leading stars could be looking for new clubs in the summer when their contracts expire.
The latest window will slam shut at 11pm on January 31.
Each Premier League club currently stands to lose players at the end of their deals in the summer.
For some sides, the priority during the January window could be tying down these stars to new contracts, or cashing in while they still have the chance.
Here, we have rounded up all the Premier League players who will be out of contract in the summer according to transfermarket.co.uk .
Obviously there are some names on the list that are way beyond Villa’s means, and some they wouldn’t even want.
There are however some players that would be shrewd bits of business for Villa.
Tell us what you think.
