Steve Bruce has claimed that the best transfer deal he has ever made was to bring John McGinn from Hibernian to Aston Villa for a measly £2m.
The Scottish midfielder has been a revelation since he joined Villa last summer, scoring 10 goals and providing 12 assists as well as becoming a star for Scotland – with seven goals in his last six matches.
The 25-year-old was named as Villa’s Player of the Season last year and has impressed in the Premier League with a few accomplished displays in midfield.
Talking about McGinn before we face him on Monday, Bruce thinks that he is the best signing he has ever made and that he is now ready to play for one of the big six.
A move to Manchester United has been mooted, and the 58-year-old thinks that McGinn would be ready to play for the Red Devils.
The Scot has looked very good this season, and we will have to shut him out on Monday if we are to extend our winning run.
The fact that Bruce rates him as the best player he has ever signed indicates that he is worried about facing him, and hopefully, he has a plan to stop McGinn.
Who is Villa's biggest threat?
The return of Jack Grealish will also boost Villa, and we are going to have to nullify these two if we hope to leave Villa Park with another win.
