More Aston Villa stars may exit after Conor Hourihane

Villa’s focus heading into transfer deadline day remained on outgoings after Conor Hourihane completed a season-long loan move to Sheffield United.

The Republic of Ireland international, who is out of contract next summer, had not made a Premier League appearance since last November and Dean Smith was always prepared to let him depart for more playing time.

French full-back Frederic Guilbert could also leave before tonight’s deadline, though Villa will not entertain any late offers for Douglas Luiz.

Reports in Italy claimed Roma were considering an approach but the Brazil midfielder is very much part of the long-term plan at Villa Park.

Barring any unexpected twists, no further incomings are expected at Villa before the window closes at 11pm.
