Changing the current Aston Villa club crest has long been a topic of discussion for claret and blue supporters. That badge is synonymous with some of the most glorious moments in Villa history, including the famous European Cup triumph in Rotterdam. Newcastle United are reportedly keen on Algerian international Slimani but his price tag may prove a stumbling block for the Magpies. Allowing both Ulloa and Slimani to leave this month would leave Leicester with just Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho and Shinji Okazaki as senior striking options which is why they are understandably reluctant to rush into a deal with Villa.
The club has a list of other targets they could move for if Leicester continue to play hardball over Ulloa with Burnley striker Nahki Wells an alternative. Bruce confirmed last week that Villa had held talks with Premier League golden boot winner Robin van Persie but were unwilling to commit to a contract for the year-old, who has since re-joined Feyenoord.

Manchester United Should players celebrate goals scored against their former clubs? In some ways Robin van Persie will always be an Arsenal man.
