Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard is finalising his preparations for his first full season in Premier League management.

Aston Villa have spent £49.5m so far, and while they may not be finished yet, they already look well-placed to make a run at the top half under the 42-year-old.

Gerrard, appointed in November, had the opportunity to recruit some fresh faces in January but has made the most of the summer transfer window, bringing in Diego Carlos, Boubacar Kamara and Ludwig Augustinsson in addition to doing permanent deals for January loan signings Philippe Coutinho and Robin Olsen.

But ultimately, Aston Villa felt as if their hands were tied.

Aston Villa tried to lay out a path to first-team football and presented the best offer they could, but Chukwuemeka resisted.

Rather than being pressured into a cut-price deal as he entered the last 12 months of his contract, Aston Villa held out, and Chelsea’s lucrative bid was reward for their resolve.
