Aston Villa reportedly favourites to sign another Premier League legend

According to reports, Aston Villa are the bookies favorites to sign veteran Premier League striker Peter Crouch. Popular bookmakers SkyBet have listed the Villains as having a 6/5 chance of securing the signature of the 36-year-old Crouch.

Villa will need extra forward options next season considering that they are likely to be without Jonathan Kodjia, who suffered an ankle injury during the penultimate match of last season, for the start of next season.

Crouch has a wealth of experience and last season, he became the 26th Premier League player in history to notch 100 top flight goals after his goal for Stoke during a 1-1 draw with Everton.

Should Crouch join the Villains, he will join fellow Premier League veteran John Terry in linking up with Steve Bruce’s side.  He will also add experience to the Villa team and will be able to serve as a mentor to younger players particularly the strikers.
