BRUCE: WE HAVE THE NU­CLEUS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MAN­AGER Steve Bruce wants qual­ity over quan­tity when he car­ries out his trans­fer busi­ness with As­ton Villa dur­ing the sum­mer.

Villa are set to miss out on im­me­di­ate pro­mo­tion back to the Premier League, but Bruce is happy the core of his squad can chal­lenge next time around.

“I don’t think there are go­ing to be whole­sale changes,” ex­plained Bruce. “But a man­ager’s job is that you al­ways try to im­prove.

“I’m very pleased we’ve got the nu­cleus. Now, we need to start adding two or three rather than six or eight.”
