Promoted Aston Villa set for major squad overhaul

Promoted Aston Villa are set for a major overhaul this summer.

The Sun says although manager Dean Smith is currently enjoying a few days off after Villa's Play-off success at Wembley, the club's Chief Executive Christian Purslow Sporting Director Jesus Pitarch have been hard at work behind the scenes.

Villa are in for a busy summer with up to 10 new arrivals expected at the club as new owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens look to strengthen the squad to cope with the demands of the Premier League after a three-year exile.

Alan Hutton, the club's longest-serving current player, has confirmed he will be leaving this summer along with Albert Adomah, Tommy Elphick and Mile Jedinak as Smith looks to lower the average age of the squad.
