No Aston Villa signings expected, admits Lambert

Aston Villa will not be making any signings during the current transfer window, according to their manager Paul Lambert.

Sky Sports writes that Lambert’s opinion is that Villa cannot afford to spend their way to survival by the time the transfer window shuts on Thursday.

With the Villans sitting just a single point above the relegation zone, and exits from both domestic cup competitions at the hands of lower league opposition within the past week, top flight survival appears to be the only remaining target for the Midland club this season.

Despite calls from the terraces at Villa Park for more experienced players to be brought in, Lambert has admitted that time is now running out. He said: “At this minute there's not much really happening. There's been guys we went for who have gone to other clubs. How many players are we short? There's a few. But I knew the remit of the job was to rebuild. To rebuild something you have to strip it right back.

But if you are asking me if there will be a vast amount of money available during the rest of the transfer window, there won't be.

With Alan Hutton and Stephen Warnock linked with moves away from the club, to Real Mallorca and West Ham respectively, it would appear that the remaining experienced core of the squad could yet be stripped away too.

The Scot continued: “There are things going on at the moment on that side of it, but Stephen and Alan are here at the minute until I hear otherwise.

The 43-year-old added that he will not be walking away from Villa Park: “I can only do, or try to do my best. There's no chance I'd walk away from it. You have to fight like anything to get up.
