Aston Villa eyeing safety net full-back to help club: Not a bad move if it’s true!

Posted by

After conceding a shocking 51 goals last season (2nd worst of any Top 10 EPL club), Villa boss Martin O’Neill seems to be realising that adding a couple more defenders to the squad wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

The Birmingham Mail says that O’Neill is preparing to add some fresh legs to back up his starting XI by adding Celtic full-back Lee Naylor as a solid substitute.

Naylor has been a mainstay in the Celtic defence since he made the move from Wolverhampton in 2006, and the thought of him covering for Bouma has to make Villa supporters ecstatic about their potential options.

What do Villa supporters think about adding Naylor to the squad? Could he help shore-up the full-back position at the club?
