Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has said that the club aren’t likely to make any major moves before the transfer deadline passes on September 2nd, but he admitted that there could be movement going both into the club and out of it, Sky Sports reports.

The Scot has said that he is always interested in making quality additions to his squad and could be tempted to dip back into the market for some last minute additions over the course of the weekend.

He has also confessed that a number of players could be moved in during that time too, but at the moment he has said that all is quiet on both fronts.

Lambert was asked about whether he was looking at bringing anymore players into the club he replied; “We try. I don’t ever stop looking at people. Whether we’ve got the money or not, I think it’s important to always keep looking to see.

“You probably can’t do what a lot of people think you can do.

“We try, but there wouldn’t be any major movement. If something came up I thought was right and financially it was right, we’d look at it.”

Villa have already let Darren Bent and Nathan Delfouneso leave on loan this summer, to Fulham and Blackpool respectively, and reports suggest that Stephen Ireland, Shay Given, Alan Hutton and Barry Bannan are all surplus to requirements too.

“It’s up to other teams to make the move,” he added.

“I really don’t know. Until somebody picks up the phone and actually asks. I can’t speak for anybody else, it’s up to them whether they’re interested. They know the phone number.”
