Aston Villa plot ambitious move for Premier League midfielder

Aston Villa have not made the start to the new season that they would have been hoping for, losing at Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship and then crashing out of the League Cup at the hands of Luton Town.

Reinforcements are desperately needed if the West Midlands outfit are to make an immediate return to the Premier League, with Joe Ledley amongst their targets according to the Croydon Advertiser.

Persuading the Wales international to drop down a division could prove difficult for Roberto Di Matteo, but Aston Villa remain a prestigious club to play for.

In fact, the Crystal Palace midfielder clocked up over 200 games in the competition during his time at Cardiff, weighing in with 26 goals and 25 assists.

Last season at Selhurst Park, Ledley found himself in and out of the team, though the Eagles fared far better in the top-flight when he featured:
