Aston Villa boss Dean Smith eager to continue buying

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is eager to continue buying over the coming fortnight.

Smith's buoyant side face Fulham on Monday - live on Sky Sports - on the back of seven games unbeaten and new boy Bertrand Traore is set to feature after his stunning debut goal against Bristol City in midweek.

But Smith is still not satisfied with the strength of his squad and is looking to add to his numbers following the departure of Mbwana Samatta to Fenerbahce.

Smith said: “We're always looking in the market, we're probably one short in the squad at the moment so we'll keep looking at that.

“I think there's seven days left until the window shuts internationally, another seven days domestically.

“Our sporting director at the moment has got his finger on the pulse, hopefully we might get one more in and maybe a couple more out."
