According to reports, Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is trying his best to complete the signing of West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass.
After joining the Hammers for £10 million in January, the Scotland international struggled to live up to expectations.
As a result, the 29-year-old Snodgrass is said to be surplus to requirements and is being allowed to leave the club this summer.
Whilst talking about a potential deal for Snodgrass, Bruce has said, “[Snodgrass] is someone who I’ve worked with before, I know he’s got big experience, has done it, been there and got the T-shirt.
“He can play in a few positions up the top end of the pitch, can make a goal, score a goal and has a wonderful delivery from set-pieces. So if I can pull it over the line, I’ll try my best.”
Villa have started the season on a disappointing note that the addition of Snodgrass to their ranks could be useful considering that he has a lot of experience at the highest level and is a proven performer at Championship level having previously helped Hull City to win promotion to the Premier League.
