Remi Garde looks to maintain Villa's Premier League status, with his side sitting bottom of the league
Sorry, Aston Villa fans.
Despite being linked with Ivorian Seydou Doumbia, you couldn't quite secure his signature which would have been a boost in the forward line.
He opted for Newcastle instead.
Moves for Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy also never materialised, while Sunderland stole in ahead to steal Wahbi Khazri.
Ten points off safety and games against West Ham, Liverpool and high-flying Norwich all coming up... It might be time to start planning for life in the Championship.
