Slow transfer window
It seems a good deal for parties involved, and Rangers probably got the best out of it.
First of all, it saved them time and money from appealing their case to FIFA, and although the amount is less, it will into the transfer fund.
Villa have done some big-money transfers in recent years, and the amount is negligible for them.
The Gers have made a slow start in the transfer window, and they have to kick on with their business.
John Souttar is the only new arrival at the club, although it has to be remembered that the deal was signed back in January.
Basically, apart from dishing out contract offers to Connor Goldson and Steven Davis, and shipping out Leon Balogun and Cedric Itten, the Bears have been very slow with the activities.
With players like Alfredo Morelos and Joe Aribo nearing the end of their contracts, the club must make some moves quickly. Aaron Ramsey and Amad Diallo returned to the parent clubs, so there should be money to spend.
