Sam Allardyce has urged the Premier League's new boys not to go mad in the transfer market.
"My advice would be don't spread it out buying too many players. Buy quality not quantity. The £100m Fulham spent should get you three or four players, not 12."
Allardyce believes Villa's finances gives them the best chance of survival.
He added: “They have got ambitious owners prepared to back Dean and pump money into recruiting the players to keep them up."
