PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Aston Villa on Sunday, August 14. Villa got off the mark in the Premier League on Saturday with a 2-1 win against Everton at Villa Park as Steven Gerrard got one over on Frank Lampard again as a manager. But the joy of the win was marred by a serious-looking injury suffered by defender Diego Carlos that could see the club enter the transfer market this month for a replacement. The majority of Villa's business was done early in the summer with Carlos, Boubacar Kamara and Ludwig Augustinsson arriving alongside Philippe Coutinho and Robin Olsen making loan moves permanent, and Kamara thrilled fans with his performance against the Toffees. Further outgoings are anticipated as plenty of players have been linked with moves away from Villa Park following the confirmed exits of Carney Chukwuemeka, Matt Targett and Trezeguet. Striker Keinan Davis completed a move to Championship side Watford on Saturday and Kaine Kesler-Hayden went out on loan to Championship side Huddersfield Town for the rest of the season.
