Interesting transfer news are out and it has been reported that Aston Villa are set to keep released Liverpool fullback Fabio Aurelio in England.
The Mirror has reported that Brazilian defender Aurelio, now age 30, is a Bosman after rejecting a pay-as-you-play deal at Anfield following a torrid time with injuries.
And Villa boss Martin O’Neill wants the star to provide cover on the left in his squad.
Aurelio, who holds an Italian passport, is experienced in the Premier League at left-back and in midfield after joining the Reds from Valencia in 2006.
He will be a useful addition to Villa’s squad as left-back Wilfred Bouma has quit on a free and Nicky Shorey is up for sale.
