Henri Lansbury could be heading for the Aston Villa exit door before deadline day, according to a report

The Sun (1 August, page 53) recently claimed that midfielder Lansbury is free to leave the newly-promoted side at the ‘right price’.

In the first few months, he struggled to stamp his authority on the team as Villa, who had just been relegated, finished in mid-table.

That following campaign, Villa reached the play-off final by injuries and a lack of form resulted in Lansbury not having the impact he would have liked.

It got even worse for him last term because he only started one match and didn’t feature much when Dean Smith arrived at the club.

He has been a part of Villa’s pre-season plans all summer and he has managed to remain injury-free during that period.

But it seems as though the Midlands outfit are happy to part ways with the former Nottingham Forest man ahead of the new campaign.

More than likely, he will have to drop down to the Championship with the summer transfer window slamming shut on Thursday.
