With the transfer deadline becoming a headache for Man City, who made multiple transfers before the deadline the club transferred one of their highly noted players.
Man City lost skipper Richard Dunne, who signed a reported £6mil deal that ended his nine year stint at Man City moving on to Aston Villa.
Villa who has been completing key transfers, such as the Welsh international James Collins who signed a £5mil just before the transfer window was closed.
Villa who have spent a reported £40mil since the opening of the season is looking to improve the club.
Villa who lost skipper Martin Laursen to retirement is seeking to replace the former skipper with experienced vets. The Irish defender who signed a contract back in 2008 to keep him with the club until 2012 was thrown out of the window when Man City started making transfers in the beginning of the year.
Dunne who is the captain of the Republic of Ireland team and was captain of Man City was transferred due to the signings of younger players, such as Joleon Lescott from Everton and Kolo Toure from Arsenal.
Dunne will get a chance to meet up with his former team on October 5th when Aston Villa faces Man City at Villa Park. Dunne is one of the Premier League’s best defenders and will not only add his defensive skills to Villa’s arsenal, but also experience that he can pass on to his younger teammates.
