Breaking News ! Rampant Dean Smith believes Aston Villa already have another new signing the Premier League might just have forgotten about. Villa have snapped up Matty Cash, Ollie Watkins and Emiliano Martinez in what's been a fruitful fortnight on the transfer front. However, back at Bodymoor Heath there's a familiar face who's looking back to his brilliant best and is primed to start the new campaign off in fine form - just like he did last year. That man Smith name-checked last night after the win over Burton was a certain John McGinn. The Scot is back up to 100 per cent after arguably looking a shadow of his former self throughout Project Restart. McGinn, of course, sustained a broken ankle and a hairline fracture in his shin in cruel, back-to-back injuries and returned to action against Sheffield United last term only half-fit. The central midfielder featured in all of Villa's final 10 games and made nine starts as he's a man Smith wholeheartedly trusts in the heart of his midfield - regardless if he isn't 100 per cent.

"He was probably 80 per cent of what he could have been when he came back during Project Restart but now training sessions have lifted and the levels have gone up with Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins involved.

. Smith, meanwhile, was asked about how he plans to attack the year ahead after admitting previously how he took the standard in the Premier League for granted somewhat when revealing he wanted his Villa to out-gun everyone following promotion. "We spoke with Jack about what we're looking to do," Smith added, "and who we're looking to bring in and he was quite happy that we're getting quality over quantity this season that should certainly improve the starting XI.

The last four games we only conceded three shots on target which is an amazing thing to do against any team in the Premier League. Two of them were goals at Everton and the last game against West Ham. "We have to make sure we find the right balance and we're not gung-ho. We've got a good defensive organisation and discipline and, obviously, bringing Ollie Watkins in and having Jack Grealish and looking to add as well we should have enough potency to help us move us up the league."
