Aston Villa have been busy this summer bringing a few new faces but they are still very much trying to bring in more signings to stabilize their defence. After back to back wins against Liverpool and Fulham Martin O’Neill would be forgiven for thinking that the defence was not in such a desperate need of change but nonetheless it appears the club is looking to sign £5m rated West Ham man James Collins.
The lanky 26 year old centre back has been at Upton Park since 2005 but has seen long spells out with injury hamper his progress at the club. Stoke City are also said to have a great interest in the former Cardiff City player but Aston Villa may be a more tempting move for the Newport born defender.
