Aston Villa Struggles to Offload Calum Chambers Amidst Three Rejected Offers

Aston Villa struggles to offload Calum Chambers as the defender rejects three Championship offers before the transfer deadline.

Aston Villa is facing challenges in offloading defender Calum Chambers ahead of the Thursday transfer deadline, as the 29-year-old rejects three offers from Championship clubs. The Birmingham-based team, under Financial Fair Play pressure, aims to lower their wage bill by parting ways with Chambers, who has fallen down the pecking order under manager Unai Emery.

Sources reveal that despite Villa’s efforts to secure a deal for Chambers, the player remains reluctant to leave the club. The rejected offers from Championship sides add to the club’s financial concerns, as they seek to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.

Chambers, who joined Villa in 2022 on a free transfer to reunite with Emery from their Arsenal days, has struggled to secure a spot in the first-team lineup. With just three appearances in all competitions this season and no Premier League minutes in 2023-24, the defender faces a challenging situation at Villa Park.

The urgency to offload Chambers is intensified by Villa’s need to raise funds before the transfer deadline. Emery, earlier this month, publicly stated that Chambers, along with teammate Bertrand Traore, is free to find new clubs during the January window. Villa’s financial constraints and Chambers’ contract set to expire next summer make it imperative for the club to make a decision soon.

In unrelated developments, Aston Villa has reportedly reached an agreement to sign a 21-year-old star following intervention by manager Unai Emery. As the clock ticks down to the transfer deadline, Villa faces the dual challenge of securing new signings while addressing the complications surrounding the departure of Calum Chambers.
