When a manager leaves a club, those fans he leaves behind often fear him returning to attempt to sign some of his favourite players.

And less than a week since Steven Gerrard left Scottish champions Rangers to take charge of Aston Villa, it seems that supporters of the Gers may have to brace themselves for that.

According to 90min, the new Villans head coach is eyeing a potential move for Nathan Patterson and Glen Kamara.

Full-back Patterson, 20, has had a breakthrough 2021 for both club and country, making all six of his senior international appearances this term, including one at Euro 2020.

Meanwhile Kamara, 26, played 51 times in all competitions last term and has represented Finland 34 times.

Kamara, who started his career at Arsenal, was key for Gerrard at Rangers.

However, the report claims that Gerrard still holds a lot of respect for his former employers, who he led through an unbeaten season to win a first top-flight league title in a decade last term.

It’s thought the Liverpudlian doesn’t want to damage that too much, meaning further moves for the likes of Ryan Kent and Borna Barisic, who it’s also thought are on Gerrard’s radar, may have to be put on hold.

Villa are currently 16th in the table and just two points above the drop after losing their last five league games.

Next up in Gerrard’s first game is a home match against Brighton & Hove Albion on November 20th.
