Aston Villa are set to make decisions regarding the futures of Albert Adomah, Mile Jedinak, Tommy Elphick, Alan Hutton and Glenn Whelan, who are all out of contract soon.
The quintet’s contracts are all set to expire soon and the club will be making a decision regarding their future at Villa Park within the next week. Dean Smith is set to meet with sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch to discuss who will be staying and going this summer.
Dean Smith may be looking to offload some of the club’s senior players to make way for new blood after they won promotion to the Premier League after defeating Derby County in the play-off final.
Smith will be looking to make his mark on the squad in his first summer transfer window as Villa boss, hoping to bring in some Premier League quality players ahead of the 2019/20 season.
Tommy Elphick has been attracting interest from fellow Championship side Hull City in recent weeks, after he spent a successful first half of the season at the KCOM Stadium before being recalled by Dean Smith in January, owing to injury problems at Villa Park.
Mile Jedinak was linked with a move away from the club in the January transfer window, with reports linking him with a move back to home country Australia.
