Following the relegations of Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff, they will be preparing for a few of their players to depart this summer.
All three clubs have some great quality players that still deserve to be in the Premier League next season, some more than capable of fitting into the Aston Villa team that find themselves one win away from the top tier.
Villa face rivals Derby in the play-off final on Monday with a place in the Premier League on the line.
The Midlands side were relegated to the Championship in 2016 following a dreadful season which left them rock-bottom of the Premier League.
Despite what happens in the final, Villa will already be looking at players they are wanting to sign and should target players from the clubs recently relegated.
We have picked out a few players that Aston Villa could sign that would improve their squad depth ahead of a potential Premier League season.
The English midfielder broke into the team after impressing at youth level and while he was on loan at Yeovil Town.
The 25-year-old struggled to get to grips with the Premier League and failed to make an impact in the midfield.
After 28 appearances and no key figures to his name, the Bluebird showed desire and worked hard in order to do the best for his side.
Villa would benefit from signing Ralls because he is a fantastic player and with the right coaching could make the step up to the Premier League at the second attempt.
Fulham signed the left-back in the summer transfer window last year from Bristol City.
Bryan made 28 league appearances and provided one assist in the Premier League this season and was one of Fulham’s standout players in a faulty backline.
Still only 25-years-old, the defender has big potential and if Villa are to go up via the play-offs then a move for the Englishman would be a smart one.
Pritchard joined Huddersfield at the start of 2018 and played a huge part in their survival last season.
The 26-year-old made 30 appearances for the Terriers this campaign and provided two assists in a season where they lacked goals.
The midfielder has two season’s worth of Premier League experience which would help Villa in whatever league they are in next season.
The youngster made a massive impact at the club when he joined in January from Charlton.
The 21-year-old attacker slotted home four goals and provided one assist in 13 games for the Terriers.
The Englishman showed bags of potential in the Premier League game he appeared in and Villa would benefit from the player hugely when Tammy Abraham returns to Chelsea in the summer. The fact he only joined in January could make this one difficult though.
The Fulham goalkeeper has been at the club for the past seven years and has played a huge part in their recent history.
The English shot-stopper only made seven appearances for the Cottagers this season and conceded 20 goals.
The 26-year-old is experienced and would be a great number one for Aston Villa or even as a back-up.
