Spoke to a couple of friends in Denmark and I get the impression that he's a bit like Bolasie in that he's great with the ball at his feet but the end product just isn't there most of the time.

Remember watching him in the World Cup or Europeans for Denmark and thinking exactly that.  Came on as a sub to a lot of hype and did the square root of nothing.  Must be better options available e.g. Benrahma

From seeing play for Denmark and occasionally for FC Midtjylland I'd agree with that. Too much head down bull in a china shop type play running down blind alleys.

Having seen Wesley play for four games now, I am increasingly of the opinion that we need to sign a free agent like Sturridge. He could do with the pressure taking off whilst he gets to grips with English football. Think he will get there in the end, but we need someone else vying for the shirt.

Sturridge isn’t a free agent. He plays for Trabsonspor in Turkey.

I'm more worried about how few chances we create for him than I am about him.

Yup we’re not on the front foot enough.

Are we expecting Lovre Kalinić to get a deadline day move today to European club?
I'm not sure much hope or place for him and would suit all parties if he was at least loaned out.

Also could there be some loan outs of a few more younger villa players  as it's deadline for league one and league two clubs.

I'd say it's likely.

We need to recoup some £ and Steer has eclipsed him and then some.

Did we manage to offload Nyland and Kalinic yesterday? Bit of a waste of their time and our money if not.

Ridiculous that Europe has various deadlines. Big advantages for some clubs. Silly idea to close ours before the season even begins.

Why? Could you imagine if John McGinn had been snatched away from us at 23:59 on the 31st Aug?

The sooner the window closes the better.

I can't. The transfer window used to close at 11:00 pm.

"Premier League set to scrap early transfer window closure. 11 of the 20 clubs will need to vote in favour of reversing the decision on 12 September".

Thank fuck. Hopefully they'll overturn this really dumb closure time pushed by dinosaur Wenger and revert back to the old system next season.
