Aston Villa have secured the services of Birmingham City’s first-team Sports Scientist, Aman Singh Shergill, according to a report.
Training Ground Guru have reported that Shergill has swapped Championship side Birmingham City for their bitter rivals Aston Villa, who are in the Premier League.
If the rumours are true then this won’t be the first time Villa have recently concluded a deal with Birmingham for a member of staff, who is part of their club.
In the summer, playmaker Jota joined Villa and re-united with his former Brentford boss Dean Smith, whilst Gary Gardner moved in the other direction on a permanent basis – he was previously on-loan at the Blues.
Nonetheless, the Training Ground Guru report states that Shergill has left the Blues after four years to become Villa’s physical performance scientist.
It is also said that at Villa Park, Shergill will work alongside lead sports scientist Jack Sharkey and report to performance director, Jeremy Oliver.
This is just proof that Dean Smith, who has now been in the Villa job for just over year, is still making touches to the set-up at the Midlands club.
From Villa’s youngest age group to the senior side, Smith will want his DNA stamped on the club as he hopes to guide the club back to European football in these coming years.
