Aston Villa eye Gary Cahill

Aston Villa are being linked with a move for Chelsea and England defender Gary Cahill.

The 32-year old started last season as club captain at Stamford Bridge but has gradually fallen down the pecking order in West London, and has not started a game yet this season under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

Now, it is reported that Cahill could be set for join Villa on a free transfer next summer when his current contract ends, although they may face competition for his signature from Premier League club Watford.

Cahill is a former Villa academy player, and spent four years as a senior player with the club, before moving to Bolton in 2008 where he really made his name.  He joined Chelsea in a£7 million deal in January 2012, and has since gone on to win a string of honours at the club including two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and League Cup, as well as the Champions League and Europa League.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
